The Democrats’ New Rules Aren’t Really Helping Them

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s all Donald Trump’s fault!  He caused this!  Oh, wait… – When some nut job killed five people working at an Annapolis, MD newspaper on Thursday, many of the fake journalists who infest Twitter immediately knee-jerked to the conclusion that the tragic event was all the fault of President Donald Trump.  Then it turned out that this guy had had a running feud with the paper since 2011.  None of the fake journalists then backed up and blamed Barack Obama.  Go figure.

But wait, these are the rules you asked for, Congresswoman.  What’s the problem? – Mad Maxine Waters told the fake news media yesterday that she’s decided to cancel fundraising events in Alabama and Texas due to “serious” threats she’s received in the mail this week.  The Braying Buffoon is, of course, fresh off of a Saturday event at which she incited violence against members and supporters of the Trump Administration, and then several subsequent appearances at which she refused to pull her remarks back and simply reinforced them.

So, sadly, these are the new rules she’s said she wanted, and now she’s complaining about having to live under them.  Her fellow Democrats would do her a favor by joining with Republicans to force her out of the congress entirely and send her back to California to live in that multi-million dollar mansion she’s somehow been able to afford on a government salary.  That would get her out of the limelight and most likely put an end to any threats.  But doing that would require personal integrity on the part of those Democrats, so we know that’ll never happen.

Speaking of the new rules, more than 600 women staged a sit-in in the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington DC on Thursday in support of the Democrat/Media-fabricated “don’t separate the families!” issue on the border.  The Capitol Police stated that 575 of the women (don’t any of these people have jobs?) were arrested and carted off to local jails, where they will be arraigned and released and probably pay a minor fine.  Because that’s all we do to people who disrupt the nation’s business these days.

This weekend, there are several hundred such protests planned to take place in cities all over the country.  ABC Radio reported this morning that “organizers” expected more than 100,000 people to participate.

Let’s think for a moment about that that word “organizers” that ABC so casually tossed out to its listeners without any effort to identify who they might be.  Who are these “organizers?”  Who do they work for?  Who’s paying them?

ABC and their fellow fake news outlets want us all to just think that these are just a bunch of sweet little ladies and short, skinny guys with mustaches who “organize” such events out of the goodness of their little hearts.  They want you to think that these events are somehow organic, that they just happen due to the pressing demand from people who can’t wait to get out onto the street on hot summer days and carry signs with stupid slogans on them while chanting slogans that are even more stupid.

The truth is that these “organizers” are professional agitators in the same mold as Barack Hussein Obama, who did this stuff for a living before some domestic terrorists and radical preachers decided he should go into politics.  Indeed, the 28 year-old gal who got elected to congress in New York on Tuesday is nothing more than a professional “community organizer.”  These people are both the past and the future of your Democrat Party, folks.

What you’re going to see on Saturday is a bunch of events organized by these Obama clones, in which most of the participants are not local citizens but paid protesters bused into these cities in buses paid for by George Soros and big foundations with names like Park and Heinz and Rockefeller.   There’s nothing organic about them and they really have very little local support.

Saturday, then, is actually the kickoff of the Democrat Party’s campaign for the general election.  These events will probably be fairly tame, but you can expect them to become increasingly shrill and violent as Election Day approaches and it becomes increasingly obvious the Democrats are going to suffer an other loss at the polls.  Because this is all the Democrat Party is anymore.  If you vote for them, you are voting for the destruction of the American Union.

Speaking of people trying to destroy our Union, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray testified up on Capitol Hill before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, and boy, was it a spectacle.

Not that anything new really happened:  Wray was his normal dissembling, ineffectual self and Rosenstein was his normal hostile, transparently lying self.  This is who these guys are, and what they do.

Trey Gowdy got in his five minutes of hyperbolic grandstanding, after which he will go and accomplish nothing of substance, because that is who he is and what he does, too.  It’s always inspiring to listen to him chastise these people as only he can do, but then reality inevitably sets in and you realize that that’s really all there is.

Jim Jordan got the best rise out of Rosenstein and that was fun, but at the end of the day, Rosenstein is just going to go on withholding key documents from the various congressional oversight committees, and Wray is just going to continue being a feckless leader who is doing pretty much nothing at all to reform the disgracefully corrupted FBI.

I would talk about the Democrats on the committee, half of whom are illiterate half-wits, but really, that’s all that ought to be said about them.

So, another all-day hearing during which nothing of substance was accomplished.  After the hearing, the full House of Representatives did vote along party lines to approve a resolution that DOJ produce the documents by next Thursday.  But the “resolution” is non-binding and fails to spell out any potential penalties for Rosenstein failing to comply, which will certainly be the case.

The reality here, of course, is that the House is not going to really do anything until and unless Speaker Paul Ryan is replaced by someone who possesses a set of gonads.  Because Ryan is the obvious block to any effective action, and as long as he’s the Speaker, the current stalemate will continue.

Just another day in nothing real happening here, folks, move along America.

That is all.

Hillary Clinton and McCabe Clarify Job #1 for Sessions: Punish the Deep State Cabal

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.”

This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State.  Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton Crime Family’s Fake Foundation and the Uranium One scandals are bearing some fruit.  Cool.

The Coughing Crook also ironically accused the President of “undermining the stability of the global order.”  Well, yes, that is what the Trump campaign was, and the Trump presidency is all about.  It’s what he got elected to do, and – shockingly to every politician and fake journalist in Washington – it is actually what he is going about doing.

Wait, what?  And he was surprised he got fired? – ABC News reported on Wednesday that now-fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe oversaw a criminal investigation last summer against…wait for it…his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions!

Oh, but it gets even better.  Turns out the investigation was initiated at the demand of…wait for it…disgraced former Minnesota Senator Al Franken.  The pusillanimous ex-bad comic insisted the FBI investigate Sessions because he believed the AG had not told him the truth during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier in the year.

Of course, the very most absurd part of this story is the fact that Democrat voters have become so utterly demented and devoid of any real standards in their voting patterns that Al Franken was once actually a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This is me, slapping my damn head.

But back to McCabe:  Seriously, you conduct a criminal investigation of your own boss and then have the nerve to feign surprise when you get your butt run off?  There can be no more perfect illustration of the entitled attitudes of the deep state thugs who still infest the federal bureaucracy.  No one elected creeps like McCabe and James Comey and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr to do anything, yet they all obviously believed they were entitled to work to fix a national election and, having failed at that, to work to undermine a duly-elected President.

When they get caught and summarily fired, they issue intemperate, threatening and demonstrably false statements written by professional talking points monkeys (McCabe) expressing their outrage at being caught and fired, or they steal government records, leak them to the New York Times (Comey) and start issuing increasingly weird messages on their Twitter feeds.

These people all believed they were somehow special; that, despite the fact that no citizen had ever cast a single vote in their favor, they were the chosen ones who somehow had a duty to commit crimes designed to guide the destiny of a nation of 330 million people.

It’s important to never forget the foundational key to all of this:  They all felt free to commit all manner of crimes in pursuit of their goals because they knew with absolute certainty that, if the Fainting Felon won the 2016 election, there would be no investigation into any of this.  They knew that, not only would they never be in any way punished for their crimes, they would in fact most likely be rewarded for their actions on behalf of the Cackling Crank, who they all fully expected to win.

And why wouldn’t they think this way?  After all, they’d just gone through 8 years during which the FBI and Department of Justice had been increasingly corrupted at the highest levels by a President who had promised to “transform the country” and by political appointees dead set on carrying out that mission.  Indeed, it is becoming increasingly obvious with every passing day and release of more Strzok/Page texts that this deep state cabal was right in the middle of “transforming the country” into just another third world banana republic when a very inconvenient election intervened.

The more we learn about this deep state cabal and its efforts to subvert our democratic processes, the more I lean towards viewing the outcome of the 2016 election as an act of a very benevolent God.  What they did was treasonous, and it is vitally important that they all be brought to justice if our country is going to survive.  Because the past week’s statements by McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Power and the Pantsuit Princess make it crystal clear that none of them has any intention of voluntarily relenting.

Just another day in deep state America.

That is all.

Irish Beto Forgets He’s Running in Texas, Where the AR-15 is a Sporting Rifle

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ban on “sanctuary cities” signed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott in 2017.  The law levies penalties, including fines and jail time, on public officials who attempt to enforce sanctuary city policies like those in place throughout the entire third world state of California.  God Bless Texas.

[Edit] Several readers have asked why I didn’t mention the Pennsylvania race in today’s Campaign Update, so here goes.  

I wasn’t  quite sure what to say about it, since it isn’t over yet.   The Democrats had a great candidate who knew how to pretend to be moderate, and the Republicans had an awful candidate who was barely literate on the issues, and lots of people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home.  The turnout in heavy GOP precincts was 20% below the turnout in heavy Democrat precincts.

There is no doubt that there is a very definite enthusiasm gap right now in the Democrats’ favor nationally, though maybe not in Texas.  The Republicans have to change that to hold the House.  Luckily for the Rs, their fundraising his well ahead of the Ds, and there are almost 8 months left before Election Day.

The View shrew Joy Behar was actually forced by ABC honchos tired of being asked about it to apologize on-air on Tuesday for her insulting remarks to all Christians that took place on the show a few weeks ago.  The thoroughly obnoxious, hopelessly ignorant blowhard had tried to slide by with a private apology via phone call to Vice President Mike Pence, who she had said was insane for practicing his Christian beliefs, a remark that, had it been uttered about a Muslim, would have gotten her fired before she could get to her dressing room after the show.

Pence accepted her apology, as any gracious, practicing Christian would do, but also suggested in an interview Monday evening that she really owed an apology to all Christians.  In her “apology”, Behar claimed that Pence’s statement had motivated her, but it’s much more likely that Disney CEO Bob Iger, whose company owns ABC, was sick of being questioned about it at every public appearance.  Either way, the insincere apology has been issued, and Behar can go back to insulting hundreds of millions of Americans on a daily basis.  Yippee.

The Pantsuit Princess is in the news yet again, this time after she claims to have “sprained her hand” while on her book tour in India.  This comes a day after she was filmed slipping twice on some stairs despite being held up by two aides.  The chardonnay-swilling Grasping Grifter will have to cancel some promotional appearances due to her hand sprain.  All of these accidents are classic symptoms of…well, you know.  You all know.

The Fainting Felon’s remarks from Monday continue to reverberate throughout the media, especially her contention that women who voted for Donald Trump did so only because their husbands or bosses wanted them to do so.  Amie Parnes at The Hill reports that Democrats she spoke with are tired of the Coughing Crook bringing negative publicity onto the Party with her constant whining over the last election, with one saying “She’s annoying me. She’s annoying everyone, as far as I can tell.  Who lets her say these things?”

Republicans, on the other hand, are pretty over-joyed at the latest softball handed to them courtesy of the Stumbling Stumper.  Mike Reed, deputy communications director for the RNC, sent out an email to reporters that said, in part:  “At the RNC, we try not to continue to focus on Hillary Clinton. We really do try very hard.  But this one is impossible to ignore.”

Never stop talking, Hillary.  Please, never, ever stop.

Irish Beto seals his November fate. – If you were still holding out hope against hope that, despite his lackluster showing in the Democrat primary, Irish Beto O’Rourke might still mount a legitimate challenge to incumbent Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the general election, well, perish that thought.

The cute Congressman pretty much sealed his fate on Monday when, speaking to an audience at Austin’s SXSW Festival, he answered a question about the current gun control frenzy in the media by stating his belief that there is no reason why an AR-15 should be sold to any civilian, reciting the Democrat/media mantra that only the police – who Democrats accuse every day of willy-nilly shooting any African American who crosses their racist path – should be able to own “assault weapons.”  Irish Beto followed that recitation by further saying “I have no idea how that polls, and I should give a shit what the NRA thinks.”

Apparently, someone forgot to remind Mr. O’Rourke that he is running a statewide race in Texas, not California or New Jersey.  In Texas, the 2nd Amendment is not a partisan issue.  There are not only Republicans, but Democrats all over the Lone Star State who not only own AR-15 rifles, but use them regularly to try to protect their land from packs of wild hogs who destroy their crops and tear up the countryside of their farms and ranches.  In Texas, the AR-15 is indeed a “sporting rifle.”

Prior to Monday, Senator Cruz had a fairly easy path to victory simply by sprinkling clips of Nancy Pelosi liberally in his campaign ads.  Now, he also gets to flood the airwaves with tape of Irish Beto himself telling Texas Republicans and Democrats alike that his position on the 2nd Amendment is no different than San Fran Nan’s.

At this point, the only thing still up in the air about this particular race is Mr. Cruz’s margin of victory, and Cruz can pretty much name the number, depending on whether he wants to spend a bunch of money on the race, or just stand back and let Irish Beto continue to self-destruct.

Adios, Texas Blue Wave, we hardly knew ye.

Just another day in self-destructing Democrats America.

That is all.

Illinois Is Going Broke, But The ESG Movement Is Here To ‘Help’

Don’t look now, but the so-called ESG movement is now coming to Chicago.  As if the Windy City and State of Illinois didn’t already have enough problems to deal with, the Wall Street Journal reports that Chicago’s Treasurer, Kurt Simmons, who manages the city’s various pension funds, is now “seeking permission from the city council to use environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to inform investment decisions.”

As I pointed out in early January, this approach to investing based on social issues rather than return on capital has worked so well in California and New York that it has played a significant role in pushing state and local retirement systems in those states to massive deficit situations.  As the Chicago Tribune recently reported,  Illinois’ “unfunded pension liability is growing faster than taxpayers’ ability to keep up. With about a quarter of general fund revenues going to the pension system, other priorities get crowded out.”

The current situation with unfunded pension liabilities has the Illinois legislature searching for increasingly radical solutions, such as forcing local communities to start sharing in the funding of teacher’ pensions.  Indeed, the state’s predicament is so dire that it has some speculating that Illinois could become the first state to actually declare bankruptcy.

Into this breach steps the ESG movement, with its demands that pension fund managers de-emphasize anticipated rates of return as their main investment priority, and instead begin making investment decisions based on an array of social issues that the ESG movement prefers.  Where Chicago’s public pension funds are concerned, doing this would create an entire new level of risk, as the funds have traditionally been conservatively invested in highly-rated government and corporate bonds.

For those who are unaware, the ESG movement is basically the second generation of what began as the “Divestment” movement.  That movement, pushed for the last decade by radical environmental activists like Bill McKibben, sought to convince cities, states, universities and pension fund managers to overtly divest any investments in fossil fuels stocks or other entities that the activists found to be objectionable.  That movement has suffered a long string of failures over the years, in places like VermontSan FranciscoSeattle, and The University of Colorado, as responsible fund managers chose to continue basing investment decisions on returns on capital rather than engaging in virtue signaling exercises.

It Was Congressional Apprentice Time in the Oval Office Conference Room

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Here’s how you become President for Life in China. – In an effort to crack down on critics of President Xi Jinping, China’s government has recently gone about banning all sorts of things, including:

  • Winnie the Pooh (because some have said Xi looks like the famous cartoon character);
  • The books “Animal Farm” and “1984” for obvious reasons; and
  • The letter “N”, for reasons no one is quite sure about.

Upon seeing this news, liberals all over America had as their first thought, “hey, we could ban the letter “G” so nobody could talk about guns, and the letters “T” and “C” so nobody could ever talk about cutting taxes ever again!”  Because that’ is how the liberal mind works.  Sure wish China would quit giving these people ideas.

Speaking of liberals, NBC News reports that the housing shortage in Berkeley and other parts of Northern California has become so severe and created rent and home prices so high that liberals are now fighting with fellow liberals on how to address the issue.  The ’60s-era hippies who created the problem in the first place by insisting on “slow growth” policies are in their 70s and 80s now.  They all have their personal beds made and don’t really see a problem at all.  But the younger, Millennial-age hipsters who staff all the Silicon Valley companies want cheaper housing and lower rents, and are pushing for faster growth policies.

This all creates a virtual sitcom-worthy situation of liberals hurling epithets at one another that is always a joy to read and invariably exhibits an extraordinary lack of self-awareness.  One 78 year-old hippie says this about the younger contingent:  “I think they are a combination of dumb and venal and maybe equal parts of both.”  Now, can there be any doubt at all that this woman said this while wearing a Bernie Sanders for President t-shirt and sipping a half-caf, decaf, mocha soy latte?

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the younger contingent fires back with things like “They are the masters of hypocritical progressivism,” no doubt while wearing a Che Guevara cap while sitting in the front seat of a brand new $120,000 Porsche, the payment on which is higher than his rent, but which is a necessary status symbol in the Silicon Valley crowd.  Awesome stuff.  If Bravo weren’t staffed exclusively by liberals who lack the ability to see the hilarity in this conflict, this would make a great reality TV show.  Hey, maybe HGTV could send me and my wife out to California to become the hosts of a new show called Flip or Flop, Berkeley!

All Hope is lost. – Well, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is lost, anyway.  The fourth occupant of the most difficult job in America became the latest to announce her resignation on Wednesday, citing the standard desire to “seek other opportunities.”  In the corporate world, this phrase invariably means the person leaving was actually forced out of his or her job.  Given all the high praise coming Ms. Hicks’s way from President Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly, they’re the most likely suspects for having done the forcing.

The fake news media, as it does anytime anyone resigns from the White House Staff, is of course portraying the resignation of the 29 year-old communications person as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  It’s like the 6,000th time we’ve heard that since April 2015, and we can only assume we will hear it 6,000 times more before President Trump is re-elected for a second term in November 2020.

Speaking of President Trump, the guy who every fake reporter in the fake news media keeps telling us wants to silence the press once again invited the press to stay and record every second of a major meeting in the Oval Office conference room on Wednesday.  Surrounded by congressional Democrats and Republicans most interested in the gun control debate, the President spent over an hour dominating a back and forth discussion what could and could not be included in a bipartisan bill on the issue, in a scene very reminiscent of an episode of The Apprentice.

Republicans in the meeting did not appreciate being put on the spot by the President on several issues, but hey, these are the same Republicans who have not done a damn thing in 4 months since the Las Vegas massacre about getting rid of bump stocks, despite the NRA’s endorsement for doing so.  So it’s kind of hard to have much sympathy for them.

The President, as he tends to do in such settings, indicated support for things he really won’t support at the end of the day – like Dianne Feinstein’s confiscatory bill banning half the guns sold in America today – but he did put people on the spot to get something done, which was the goal of the meeting.  In doing so, he also gave the fake news media a level of access that it never had from Barack Obama or any other modern president.  But, being the liberals that they all are, it is doubtful anyone in the fake news media has the sense of self-awareness needed to recognize that reality.

Just another day in Congressional Apprentice America.

The Best Energy Policy Is To Let Markets Work Freely

America’s ongoing oil and natural gas revolution is delivering big benefits to our economy, our environment and to our nation’s security. As the world’s top energy producer, America is leveraging this position of strength to grow good-paying jobs and economic opportunity here at home while firming up important trading partnership with key allies abroad. The increasing use of natural gas in power generation is also improving our environment at the same time.

This positive shift is a win for the America people and a blow to nations that previously used their energy resources against the U.S. as a political weapon.

Thankfully in Washington, American energy dominance is a central focus of the Trump administration’s policy priorities. With smart, jobs- and consumer-focused policies at the federal level as well as in energy-producing states, our economy and global political muscle will only grow stronger.

Anyone who follows energy trends hears a lot of debate around new pipelines, and how anti-fossil fuel activists want to stop infrastructure development that’s critical to creating jobs and boosting America’s manufacturing sector. We see much less discussion in the energy-related news media about how refineries and existing pipelines are responding to energy revolution’s shifting market dynamics and the benefits these actions bring to consumers.

In the Midwest, refineries have made massive new investments – literally billions of dollars in capital – to expand operations to process more North American crude in recent years. According to Morningstar, these refiners can now process 300+ more mbopd today compared to 2010. And it’s a trend that will likely continue forward.

Saturday Scattershooting While Wondering What Ever Happened To That Democrat Talk About Gun Control?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Those words are offensive!!!!  uh, except when I use them… – Florida Democrat Congresswoman Clowny McPartyBarn announced late Friday that she would not be saying anything further about President Trump’s call to a Gold Star mom that Ms. McPartyBarn secretly listened in on.  Possibly that’s because she’s just tired of all that darn media attention, but that would be like believing Harvey Weinstein went into rehab because he was just tired of all that darn forced sex.  More likely it’s because video has emerged showing Cong. McPartyBarn using the exact same language at a memorial for policemen who were killed in the line of duty that she claims offended her when it was used by President Trump in his call to the bereaved mother.  Whatever, given her shameless attention-seeking nature and lack of a single redeeming personal quality, we can be sure that we will see Cong. McPartyBarn back on TV before the weekend is out.
  • Democrats in the wake of the Las Vegas Massacre:  We need more gun control!  Guns are the problem!  We must ban guns!!!!!!!!

[Democrats get bad polling numbers on gun control last weekend.]

Democrats this week on the topic of gun control:  ….

  • Speaking of the Las Vegas massacre, what in the world is going on with that “investigation”?  Las Vegas Metro Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who was so anxious to get before the cameras on a very frequent basis during the first week following the shootings, did not hold a single press briefing this week.  Are we really to believe that an entire week has gone by with no significant new findings in the matter?
  • What about the fake national news media, which has dropped this story like a rock in favor of spending 23 of 24 hours each day interviewing a congressional circus clown?  The obvious answer to this question is that the fake news outlets see that this story is not favorable to their Democrat clients, because the public does not favor gun control and because it is likely the shooter was radicalized by ISIS or some other Islamic terror group.  So they focus on nonsense.
  • Can’t report that, Bob, it doesn’t fit the narrative. – The same is true of the new revelations in the whole Russia Uranium story this week.  To its credit, the very liberal publication The Hill has now run three extremely well-documented, meticulously-sourced stories that contain a series of smoking guns implicating Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Eric Holder and possibly Barack Obama himself in what was clearly a classic play for pay scheme.  So obviously the major networks, CNN, the WaPo and the NYTimes are going to studiously ignore this story for as long as they possibly can.  That’s what they do, and they will only be dragged kicking and screaming into giving this scandal the major attention it deserves if Attorney General Jeff Sessions actually does his job and starts forming up grand juries and issuing indictments.
  • In case you missed it – and it would have been easy to do with all the media attention focused on Cong. McPartyBarn – the U.S. military, in just 9 months under President Donald Trump, has managed to pretty much eradicate ISIS in Syria and Iraq, something Barack Obama refused to even try do to in eight long years.
  • Also in case you missed it, the do-nothing United States Senate actually did something!  Yes, I’m not kidding, the GOP majority in the Senate somehow managed to hang together – with the lone exception of Rand Paul, who hates pretty much everything – and pass a damn budget!  Holy cow, break out the champagne.  Of course, John McCain probably only voted ‘yes’ because he thought he was actually voting on a resolution to impeach Donald Trump, and Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochrane thought he was in a shopping mall in Dubuque, Iowa, but hey, whatever works!
  • Of course the bad news is that the budget passed by the Senate has a projected deficit of …wait for it…$666 billion!  That’s never a good sign, according to Revelations.  Then again, maybe Mitch McConnell can get the anti-Christ to help him keep his wayward GOP caucus members in line when it comes time to vote on tax reform.  I mean, it’s not like he’s never done a deal with the Devil before, right?  Like I said, whatever works.  Go for it, Mitch!

Just another day in whatever works America.

That is all.
