Meghan McCain Dares the Democrats to Impeach: ‘Unleash the Kraken!’

On Tuesday’s The View, very anti-Trump Meghan McCain — who, along with her family, has officially endorsed Joe Biden for a 2020 takeover — dared the Dems to go ahead with impeachment.

Talk of the “I” word has surged recently, but it’s a song that seems to have been playing from the very beginning on Trump’s presidency. They may have turned down the volume at times, but that record’s broken.

Can somebody just unplug the thing?

Even the news has been trying to oust the guy — in July of 2018, I wrote the article “CNN Asks: Are We (Finally) Ready For Impeachment?

Part of me believes they’ll still be looking to the process long after Trump’s tenure. Perhaps in 2027, President Stormy Daniels will retroactively find a way.

But as for the efforts of the moment, Meghan offered a warning.

She ain’t thinkin’ it’ll go well:

“I will say, [co-host Sunny Hostin] has been a proponent throughout the entire time we’ve been talking about it on the show of impeachment. I will say — okay, let me finish. Unleash the kraken! If you’re not going to listen to Nancy Pelosi about the political implications of this, just impeach him then, and see what happens politically.”


Some believe the 1998 impeachment of Bill Clinton hurt the Republicans more than the Commander-in-Chief, and Meghan can easily see history repeating itself:

“What happened with Clinton in the ‘90s ended up hurting Republicans and I think historians said it too. Just impeach him, then. Because quite frankly, I’m sick of hearing everybody b*tch about it.”

Yep. She’s a woman sick of it (piece of advice: Never mess with a woman who’s sick of it):

“I’m sick of hearing the infighting with Democrats, clearly progressives are running the party.Again, if he has, in fact, as Abby said, extorted —”

Joy interrupted. She assured the Dems are cool, Daddy-O:

“Don’t worry about the Democrats. The Democrats are going to get it together.”

“Are you sure about that?” McCain returned.

“Yes.”

Meghan laughed:

“On election night, I want that clip right up here.”

NRA Awards Beto O’Rourke With ‘AR-15 Salesman of the Month’ Distinction

After an Arizona gun store owner launched a sale on and sold out of AR-15s and AK-47s in response to Beto O’Rourke’s “hell yes” comments from the Democratic debate earlier this month, the NRA has awarded the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate with the AR-15 salesman of the month award.

The Hill reports:

Alpha Dog Guns in Tempe, Ariz., announced that just four hours after launching a promotional discount called the “Beto Special” — spurred by O’Rourke’s now-viral comments about his buyback proposal — it sold out of AR-15s and other rifles, owner Matt Boggs said Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”

The NRA tweeted a photo made to mock the former congressman by calling him the “AR-15 salesman of the month,” adding the caption: “Possibly even of the year.”

Here’s what they tweeted:

O’Rourke responded by tweeting out the news about Colt Manufacturing suspending AR-15 production without noting the context for the news:

Beto set off a firestorm two weeks ago after ABC News debate moderator David Muir asked whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns if elected president:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

O’Rourke has doubled down on his gun confiscation position since the debate, and has even taken to sparring with normally Democrat-friendly journalists like CNN’s Chris Cuomo and members of his own party on the issue.

His near-singular focus on gun control has not helped his polling numbers. He is still polling at under 5% nationally.

Dem Senator Recently ‘Reminded’ Ukrainian President that Opening Investigation into Biden Would be ‘Disastrous for Long-term US-Ukraine Relations’; Got That?

The Hill’s John Solomon reported an incident that took place several weeks ago at bipartisan meeting between U.S. officials and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held in Kiev. During this meeting, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) apparently sent a very clear message to Zelensky. And, borrowing a page from Joe Biden, he actually boasted about his audacity afterward.

Following the meeting, Murphy spoke to reporters. He said he pointed out to Zelensky that Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but wouldn’t it be a shame if something were to happen to it but if he chose to “investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden’s family,” he runs the risk of losing Democratic support going forward.

Murphy reportedly told Zelensky that U.S. aid was Ukraine’s “most important asset” and if he were to comply with Trump’s request, it would be “disastrous for long-term U.S.-Ukraine relations.”

Solomon spoke to Murphy on Monday and he said, “I told Zelensky that he should not insert himself or his government into American politics. I cautioned him that complying with the demands of the President’s campaign representatives to investigate a political rival of the President would gravely damage the U.S.-Ukraine relationship. There are few things that Republicans and Democrats agree on in Washington these days, and support for Ukraine is one of them.”

So, once again, a Democrat is using U.S. aid as a bargaining chip. Or was it a threat to withhold future aid? It sounds remarkably similar to Joe Biden’s threat to withhold $1 billion in aid to the country in March 2016 if the prosecutor general who was about to question his son wasn’t fired.

Biden learned in December 2015 from an article in the New York Times that Burisma Holdings was under investigation by the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, Viktor Shokin. The Times article did not mention that Shokin was preparing to question Biden’s son, Hunter, about his dealings with Burisma. It’s not clear if they had this information and buried it or if they had no knowledge of it.

Obviously, this was a concern not only for Biden, but for the Obama administration. A story like this coming out during an election year would certainly hurt Democrats. So, they took action.

In January 2016, Solomon writes:

The Obama White House unexpectedly invited Ukraine’s top prosecutors to Washington to discuss fighting corruption in the country.

The meeting, promised as training, turned out to be more of a pretext for the Obama administration to pressure Ukraine’s prosecutors to drop an investigation into the Burisma Holdings gas company that employed Hunter Biden and to look for new evidence in a then-dormant criminal case against eventual Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, a GOP lobbyist.

U.S. officials “kept talking about how important it was that all of our anti-corruption efforts be united,” said Andrii Telizhenko, the former political officer in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington who organized and attended the meetings.

Solomon spoke to Nazar Kholodnytsky, Ukraine’s chief anti-corruption prosecutor, who had attended the meeting, shortly afterward. Kholodnytsky told him he saw evidence in Ukraine of political meddling in the U.S. election.

Following this meeting, Democrats began to apply pressure to the Ukrainian embassy in Washington. The Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S. at that time was Valeriy Chaly confirmed to Solomon that in March 2016, a DNC contractor “pressed his embassy to try to find any Russian dirt on Trump and Manafort that might reside in Ukraine’s intelligence files. The DNC contractor also asked Chaly’s team to try to persuade Ukraine’s president at the time, Petro Poroshenko, to make a statement disparaging Manafort when the Ukrainian leader visited the United States during the 2016 election.”

Chaly said the embassy denied both requests.

The story about the efforts of the DNC working with officials at the U.S. embassy in Kiev to bring down Paul Manafort is well-known.

Moreover, Nellie Ohr had a Ukrainian connection of her own. Ohr worked as a contractor for opposition research firm Fusion GPS in 2016. Her job was to conduct research into members of the Trump family. Last summer, in her testimony before Congress, she said that one of her major sources had been a member of the Ukrainian parliament. Nellie Ohr is the wife of Bruce Ohr who, at the time, was the 4th highest ranking DOJ official. He delivered research from dossier author Christopher Steele and his wife to the FBI.

Evidence of Democrat’s election interference and wrongdoing in 2016 is overwhelming and it is documented. The examples cited above merely scratch the surface.

When you consider the endless corruption and the countless abuses of power by members of the deep state during the 2016 election cycle, the coverage over President Trump’s request that Ukraine reopen an investigation into the likely wrongdoing of the Biden’s is surreal.

Solomon raises a question:

Could it be the Ukraine tale currently being weaved by Democrats and their allies in the media is nothing more than a smoke screen designed to distract us from the forthcoming Justice Department inspector general report into abuses during the Democratic-inspired Russia collusion probe?

The Latest Trump-Ukraine “Bombshell” Is Another Dud

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-2-2-620x317 The Latest Trump-Ukraine “Bombshell” Is Another Dud Ukraine scandal republicans Politics Noah Rothman Never Learn MSNBC media bias Hysteria Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Aid Featured Story extortion Dud donald trump democrats 2020

Welcome to the new playbook, same as the old playbook. We are about to relive the Mueller investigation all over again, where facts and provable evidence take a back seat to mindless, continuous supposition.

As I wrote last week, the latest “scandal” being pushed against Trump is that he withheld $250 million in military aid from Ukraine in order to force them to investigate Joe Biden, who is on tape admitting to extorting the Ukrainians while he was vice president. As it stands, we have no evidence Trump offered a quid pro quo, nor threatened anyone. In fact, the aid was not even brought up on the phone call.

With the main thrust of the story up in flames, the media are now scrambling to save what they can. Enter The Washington Post, who’s original anonymous claims have already been proven wrong, bandying about a new “bombshell” that supposedly proves…well, I’m not sure what they think it proves.

Wait, so Trump withheld the aid temporarily, but then reversed course and did not use it as leverage over Ukraine to investigate Biden? That’s the bombshell? Notice the sub-heading saying it “raises further questions.” They actually have nothing here, but the narrative must advance.

This is so remincisent of the nonsense we had to deal with the last two years in regards to the Mueller investigation. Because Trump opined on firing Muller with his counsel, Democrats and some Republicans ran with that as proof he obstructed justice. That’s not how any of this works. You either do something or you don’t. Presidents don’t get impeached for thinking about doing things, even if those things are dumb.

Take this media angle that the Post is pushing now.

Let me make this simple – Did Trump threaten him or not?

If the answer is no, and it looks to be no based on everything we’ve seen, then what exactly is the issue here? Having concerns is not a standard. It’s meaningless supposition and the President, whether you believe him or not, has already offered alternate reasons for why the aid was held temporarily.

Thankfully, Republicans have allies like MSNBC’s resident conservative, Noah Rothman.

This is apparently what passes for intellectual thought in certain parts of the conservative sphere. We’ve already known for months that the aid to Ukraine was held up. In fact, Republican Senators commented on the matter weeks ago before any of this latest craziness blew up, citing the need for Europe to get more involved. The question has never been if Trump put a hold on the aid. It’s why he did so and if he used that hold improperly. To this point, Rothman and others have yet to provide one ounce of evidence that Trump brought up the aid to Ukraine to try to extort them. Instead, we are left arguing feelings and supposition, as per usual.

As to his last statement, there are actually good kinds of quid pro quos when it comes to doling out foreign aid. Most Americans realize that. If Trump held the aid back because he wanted Europe to do more to provide for their neighbor’s defense, there’s nothing wrong with that at all. That’d actually be a good thing. Further, if that wasn’t the reason as the media and others suppose, then why did Trump not even bring up the aid in the call to the Ukrainian president? If he wanted to use it as leverage improperly, why didn’t he do so? Why was the aid released without an investigation?

Those are pretty important questions to grapple with, don’t you think? At some point, all these conspiracy theorists who are sure Trump did something wrong need to provide some actual evidence for their latest claims.

Here’s a good summarization of what we are actually doing here.

Keep in mind as well, that every one of these people who are currently freaking out over this are the same people who told you the Mueller report was going to be catastrophic, that Trump colluded with the Russians, and that it would be the downfall of his presidency.

Forgive all of us for not trusting their judgement at this point.

Here’s the bottom line. Voters are sick of this garbage. If any Democrat, media member, or anti-Trump Republican has evidence of Trump illegally extorting Ukraine, let’s see it. Show your work. The rest of us are not going to play this game again.

Iowa Family Donates $10 Elizabeth Warren Spent at Their Lemonade Stand to Pro-Life Movement

After Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made a pit stop in Iowa last month to purchase some lemonade from two 11-year-old girls at a lemonade stand, she posted an image of the meeting on Twitter to promote making lemonade out of lemons:

As it turns out, making lemonade out of lemons is exactly what the family of one of the girls did after the encounter. They donated the $10 they received from Warren, who is pro-abortion, to the pro-life movement:

“Our daughters thought [Warren] was nice,” Dan Michels, a Trump supporter and a father to one of the girls, told the Washington Free Beacon. “She came by and told us we should vote for her. And our daughters told us she was a nice person, but we don’t align with her politically and … because she’s pro-choice, we said we should donate her money to a pro-life [cause].”
[…]
The two kids were excited about meeting a presidential candidate in person. The Michels girl urged her parents to vote for the Massachusetts senator in 2020 after the photo op. The parents instead explained Warren’s stance on abortion. The girls and their parents decided to donate to the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, a non-profit that supports pro-life legislation.

“My daughter told us she wanted us to vote for her,” Michels said. “We talked about the abortion part of things and said maybe we should donate money to stop abortion, and my daughter was all for that.”

Warren has made clear during the course of her 2020 presidential campaign that she is one of the most radically extreme pro-choice candidates among those running. She supports abortion on demand for any reason at any point in time during a woman’s pregnancy, including once the baby is viable.

During the first Democratic debate in June, Warren refused to say if she’d put any limits on abortion rights:

According to the New York Post, Warren paid $3 extra for the lemonades to “account for gender inequality.” Good thing to know that the extra money she gave to account for so-called “gender inequality” may go towards saving an unborn girl’s (or boy’s) life.

Eyes Turn to Elizabeth Warren’s Daughter Following Surprise Endorsement by the Working Families Party

Westlake Legal Group 173301801-sen-elizabeth-warren-questions-witnesses-during-a-620x379 Eyes Turn to Elizabeth Warren’s Daughter Following Surprise Endorsement by the Working Families Party Working Families Party Front Page Stories Featured Story Endorsements Elizabeth Warren democrats corruption Campaigns Bernie Sanders Amelia Warren Tyagi Allow Media Exception 2020

 

In an unexpected move, the Working Families Party (WFP) has endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after a 60.9% showing in a party wide vote.

There are several reasons why this endorsement came as a surprise, especially to supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT). Sanders earned the party’s endorsement in 2016 with an 87% win in an online membership survey and it was widely believed he would receive it again.

Warren’s daughter, Amelia Warren Tyagi, is the Board Chair of liberal think tank, Demos. According to Demos’ 2018 tax filing, they contributed $45,000 to the WFP in 2018, their first donation ever to the party.

According to Washington Post reporter Dave Wiegel, this number (Warren’s 60.9%) combines two groups. 50% of the total, or 30.5%, is determined by the votes of WFP leaders and the other 50% is the result an online membership survey. He notes that WFP has dozens of leaders and thousands of members.

The party has been asked by skeptics to release the details of the vote, however, they have refused to do so.

In 2016, when the WFP endorsed Sanders, they released the separate vote tallies which can be viewed here.

According to the Center for Public Integrity, the Warren campaign’s treasurer remains on the board of Demos.

Given this set of circumstances, it’s only natural that Sanders’ supporters would be concerned. We won’t be too surprised to hear more about this when/if the Democratic primary turns into a two person race between Sanders and Warren.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Speculation:

$45,000 is not a huge number so far as political contributions go, a source familiar with WFP told independent journalist Jordan Chariton that “Demos’ $$ to WFP was a “signal” that there’s more where that came from if WFP were to endorse Warren.”

Chariton’s source also informed him that, “at the time of the @ewarren endorsement that they were “broke” and expect more money to come into it as a result of Warren endorsement. In light of this news, it goes without saying….”

Joe Biden Ripped for “Sexist” Response to Question About Past Praise of VP Mike Pence

No matter how hard he tries to, Joe Biden can’t escape accusations of sexism.

The latest example comes from Iowa, where Biden campaigned over the weekend at an LGBTQ rights forum. The Hill reports:

Cedar Rapids Gazette columnist Lyz Lenz tweeted Friday night that Biden dryly called her a “real sweetheart” in private after the two shared an onstage exchange over Biden’s support for the Defense of Marriage Act and the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

“In 1994, you did vote for ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and in 1996, you voted for the Defense of Marriage Act,” Lenz said. “You did vote to repeal both of those, but you have also praised Vice President Mike Pence as a ‘decent guy.’”

After the audience interjected with boos following the mention of Pence’s name, Biden responded, “You’re a lovely person.”

“Just asking the questions people want to know,” Lenz replied.

Lenz told USA Today she found Biden’s treatment of her “condescending”, saying that “it’s 2019, you shouldn’t be calling women sweethearts.”

TIME magazine editor at large Anand Giridharadas tweeted out the video clip, calling Biden’s answer “sexism with a smile”:

Rolling Stone writer Jamil Smith called Biden’s treatment of Lenz “Paleolithic”:

Other liberals weighed in and also equated Biden’s comments to “sexism”:

Look, I understand that it’s en vogue for liberals to pretend to be triggered by otherwise harmless comments (because it’s a great way to attract attention), but this is ridiculous. I’ve been subjected to much worse sexism just standing in the checkout line at the grocery store than Lenz was at this forum.

As Lenz noted, it is indeed 2019. Perhaps this year even more so than the last several, we are subjected to daily lectures about how strong and fierce women are and how nothing’s gonna bring them down. If this is the case, it’s time for feminist women and their liberal male enablers to stop reaching for the fainting couches everytime someone says something mildly offensive and grow up.

We have much bigger problems in this country than a presidential candidate calling women “sweethearts” and “lovely.”

Elizabeth Warren Has Overtaken Biden In an Iowa Poll, Signaling Many Dems Really Have Fallen to Radicalism

Every time I think the Democrats have reached rock bottom, they ask me for a shovel.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, the woman who is just shy of being AOC in terms of radicalism, is now leading the Democrat party, at least according to the Iowa Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll that was recently taken. Joe Biden, the race’s former leader, has now taken second place.

Don’t get me wrong, Biden was no moderate himself. He was just billed that way. Embracing the Green New Deal, one of the most socialistic laws to see the light of an American day, is good enough to throw him into the radical pile with the rest. However, most Americans aren’t going to busy themselves delving too deep into a candidate. If the media says he’s a more moderate choice, then that’s where they’ll head.

With that said, it looks like Democrats in Iowa are cool with radicalism.

As the Daily Wire reported on Monday, the poll shows Warren has squeaked by as both the favored candidate for first and second choice:

The poll, which surveyed 602 “likely Democratic caucusgoers” and was conducted between September 14-18, asked: “Which one of the following Democrats would be your first choice for president?” The respondents stated both their first and second choices.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren came out on top with 22% of respondents selecting her as their first choice, and 20% as their second choice.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, long considered the front-runner of the Democratic race, came in second, with 20% of respondents selecting him as their first choice, and only 10% as their second choice.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came in a distant third place, with just 11% selecting him as their first choice, and 10% as their second.

The Daily Wire also pointed out that while Warren leads in Iowa, Biden is still the overall leader throughout the rest of the nation with a 30.2 percent lead to Warren’s 19.8. That’s a big gap, but there’s still a lot of football left to play.

Biden might be the leader, but looking at his performance while on the campaign trail has me wondering if he’ll hold onto it for much longer. Late last month, polls showed Biden’s numbers were in free fall and that it was only a matter of time before he was replaced with someone else at the top.

The gaffe tap seems to be open to full and every day brings a new gaffe. What’s more, the Ukranian scandal hasn’t been good for his image either. Biden is becoming increasingly complicated for the left to support, and it’s only a matter of time before that complication becomes a rejection.

The Iowa poll might be an outlier, but I think it’s the pebble that starts the avalanche.

It’s not all bad, however. Warren will bring complications all her own if and when she takes over as leader of the 2020 pack. For one, the left will have to rewrite its book of outrage in order to make Warren lying about her Native American heritage okay, which will certainly be hammered by Trump and the Republicans going forward.

She also has the issue of being a radical who embraces socialistic programs, which Americans just arent’ that into. This shift of Democrats to the radical left will likely turn many Americans off, and bring them into the arms of one Donald J. Trump.

Donald Trump Definitely Wants Impeachment Proceedings To Begin Soon

President Donald Trump threw gasoline onto the smoldering fire of the Ukraine call controversy when he admitted that he did, in fact, discuss Joe Biden with the nation in a phone call.

As expected, that led us to a weekend of media reports on Democrats calling for impeachment and Adam Schiff saying it’s probably the best recourse at this point. Search “Trump Ukraine” on Twitter, and you’d be hard-pressed to find many tweets that don’t also use the word “impeach” in some form.

Truth be told, I held off on caring about this story because it was another case of “Too Good To Be True.” It fits exactly into what people perceive of Trump, and pretty much every story that has done so has ended up refuted at least in part and always ended up having an entirely different context than originally portrayed. With the revelation that the whistleblower wasn’t actually a witness to the phone call and other sources in the room saying the story isn’t what it was played up to be, and that Joe Biden did something similar, the story did indeed end up changing a bit in both context and impact.

That isn’t going to stop the Democrats, however, and it’s becoming obvious that Trump doesn’t want them to stop. Trump currently can’t run on his successful economy because it may be on the verge of weakening, and there aren’t many more accomplishments he can tout because his most vocal promises outside of tax reform and regulatory rollout haven’t come true.

Biden, his leading opponent ahead of 2020, has an appeal to moderate voters and could very well become a major threat to Trump in the general election. However, as more Democrats drop out, Elizabeth Warren could overtake Biden, presenting Trump with a far-left opponent. That’s the scenario Trump wants, and it’s the scenario he’s hoping to get.

I’ll be the first to admit I don’t think Trump is the three dimensional chess player his supporters like to believe he is, but there comes a time (as I pointed out a while back) that you have to stop assuming Trump is just aimlessly firing his talking points and tactics and actually working a larger strategy. I think that this could be one of the times we need to assume Trump wants what’s happening right now.

Nancy Pelosi knows full-well what the Democrats want. She knows she won’t be able to hold off on impeachment altogether. She also knows that impeachment over anything remotely close to a nothing burger story will kill her party in 2020. Pelosi does not want to impeach unless there is a clear-cut offense that the facts support an impeachment over.

Trump will continue to goad the Democrats into shooting for impeachment, saying just enough to make them continue to froth and roil and eventually force the party’s leadership to pull the trigger. If that happens, the 2020 election will become an election over impeachment and not the issues. Trump gets his enemy and the Democrats think they get a winning issue.

President Trump joined India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a well-attended rally held at Houston’s NRG Stadium on Sunday. Over 50,000 Indian-Americans attended the “Howdy, Modi!” which was sponsored by the Texas India Forum.

Trump and Modi had warm words for each other. Modi told the crowd of Trump’s “strong resolve to Make America Great Again.”

He needs no introduction. His name is familiar to every person on the planet. His name comes up in every conversation in the world on global politics. He was a household name and very popular even before he occupied the highest office in this great country.

You introduced me to your family in 2017 and today I have the honor to introduce you to my family. Over a billion Indians and people of Indian heritage around the globe.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, my friend, a friend of India, a great American president, Mr. Donald Trump.

Trump was equally kind in his remarks. He praised Modi for winning such a decisive victory noting that 600,000 million votes had been cast.

Trump said, “Prime Minister Modi and I have come to Houston to celebrate everything that unites America and India, our shared dreams and bright futures. You enrich our culture, you uphold our values, you uplift our communities and you’re truly proud to be American and we are proud to have you as Americans. We thank you, we love you and I want you to know my administration is fighting for you each and every day.”

The highlight of the event for Trump came when he told the crowd, “We stand proudly in the defense of liberty and we are committed to protecting innocent civilians from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.”

And 50,000 Indian-Americans gave the President a standing ovation. And he loved it.
