We have heard hints about this from time to time, slipping out between the endless howls about Russian collusion. China is FAR more dangerous to the US and the world than is Russia. All Americans need to hear this. I am especially impressed by the Trump strategy to create a counter to China’s very successful to become the world’s manufacturer.
I am not a huge fan of Jordan Peterson, but once in a while he gets it right. God’s mighty power to create is manifested in His Word, He speaks to the Holy Spirit hovering over the deep, “Let there be light!” and there is light. His Word, THE Word (in Greek “logos”) speaks His Divine Heart into the world in the Person of Jesus the Christ, His Son and our LORD. The Father has called us His sons and daughters through baptism and Faith in the Gospel. This means that each of us, you, me. all of us, have within us a reflection of the power to create and shape reality through our words. We have a Kingdom to build, people, let’s be about it.
Who Else Wants to Make the Politicians Wake Up And Pay Attention And Have Fun Doing It?
Not worth the risk
I get it. I really do. You’re just one person out there in the world with currently unfashionable opinions. You probably don’t say much, you don’t dare. The barbarians would come after you if you did. You would be mocked, derided, called racist or sexist or some kind of you-name-it-phobe du jour if you did. It would put your job at risk, maybe, hell, let’s be honest here, probably put your physical safety at risk, and that of your family as well. And that, I absolutely get it, is simply not worth the risk.
Just Ride Out the Crazy Years
So you batten down the hatches, keep a low profile and hope to ride out Star Trek’s crazy WWIII spooling up as best you can. And brother, there’s a lot of crazy going on. A lot of it isn’t new. Of course not, how could things have gotten to where they are except that they started back in the dark ages of the 1960’s and, like Topsy, just growed. Things that were crazy back then have been with us so long that they’re normal now.
Things Were Never Perfect
Not that things were so perfect back in the day, they certainly weren’t. The Ozzie and Harriet and Father Knows Best world of yesteryear were always idealizations. Then along came Married With Children and Murphy Brown and Ellen and who knows what else to further undermine the ideals of marriage and family. I confess I just about stopped watching about then, so I’ve lost touch with all that and it was probably before your time anyhow. I admit it (reluctantly!), I’m not up on current television culture. Does that make me a dinosaur?
Education for Incarceration
The world has changed and is changing, and not always for the better. I can walk past any elementary school playground and hear words I didn’t know existed till I was in boot camp. America’s educational system was #1 in the world and California was #1 in the nation. Now the US is, depending on the subject, 25th or 37th in the world and California ranks dead last in High School graduation rates. The schools have become more about indoctrination that any kind of useful education. Sounds more like education for incarceration to me.
Goodbye Parental Rights
This is more true than ever with the new California Department of Education mandate that kicks LGBTQ education up a notch or three in K-12 classrooms. Seriously, who thinks this stuff up? Who needs it? Tolerance and inclusion are all very well, but couple that with speech codes and mandated reporting and suddenly tolerance and inclusion went right out the window along with parental rights.
The Kids Don’t Like It
The kids, the brighter ones, know it and don’t like it. The Real WorldTM isn’t Lake Woebegone where every kid is above average; kids average and below have almost no positive path forward. Witness the drop out rate. Witness the increased levels of violence. Witness the teen pregnancy rates – and teen abortions. Witness the pervasive use of drugs. Witness the skyrocketing suicide rates.
What Is Going On Here?
What the hell is going on here, and why isn’t somebody doing something sane about it?
The answer to the first part of the two part question is “civilizational collapse.” The answer to the second part is, because I’m not doing something about it. Or I wasn’t.
I Confessed I Was Powerless
I confess, I’m a working stiff and I have to hit the bricks every day to keep the family fed. And, as a dinosaur, I’m preparing for fossilization in a few years. I come home and I don’t want to deal with world and its madness. I just want to read an interesting book, watch a few YouTube videos and schmooze with the wife before hitting the hay. And, hey, nobody’s going to listen to me bitch and moan about it anyway. I go to the polls every couple of years, which for a Republican in California is pretty much a waste of time, but I do my duty. It’s those danged politicians that the other side elects that are the problem. I declared myself powerless, and so I proved myself to be.
Late to the Party, But Not Too Late
Yes, I was late to the party, or should say, late to the Party, but here I am now. 911 was The Great Wake Up Call for me, as it was for so many others. Once I started paying attention I saw that I could no longer remain in the Democratic Party (I admit it, oh, the shame!) so I went Independent for a while. But I soon realized that opposing the trends driving us ever leftward was going to require a strong countervailing organization. Despite all its flaws and frustrations the Republican Party was and is the only effective one (for certain values of ‘effective’) in existence. So I switched.
Solitary Anger No Solution
Stewing in solitude about the issues even as a registered Republican wasn’t going to help anything. All I was doing was stressing myself out, sometimes using words I never heard in the Bible, snapping at my wife and getting nothing whatsoever done to improve the situation.. I needed to connect with other like minded people, people who by and large share my values, who have experience acting in the political arena (which turns out to be very different from what I had imagined), people who knew things I needed to know, people who were willing to work for improvement. So I connected. And if anything is going to get done to avert the worst of this train wreck you will too.
Why I’m Inviting You
That’s why I’m with the Glendale Burbank Republican Assembly, and that’s why I’m inviting you to join. Membership gives us three important things.
First, I can hang out with like minded Republicans and say what I REALLY think without fear that the PC Police are going to put me in the penalty box. You are not alone, there are actually thousands of us in the area, many of whom are active and intriguing people.
Second, we host a speaker every month, all of them interesting, all of them informative, all of them encouraging and worth your time. Not only will these speakers put into perspective current and past events, but open avenues for future action.
Third, it offers opportunities for you act effectively, exercising your civic responsibility with reasonable hope of making positive change or staving off another Democrat disaster. Let me illustrate this with a recent example.
Greg Kirkorian’s Testimony
The speaker at our July event this year was Greg Kirkorian, a fine Republican and a member of the Glendale School Board. I had never met Greg before, and he made a very favorable impression as a solid guy deeply concerned with the welfare of the kids the school board serves. It turns out that every school board meeting LGBTQ activists show up to lobby for more LGBT related events and curricula. Every time they have several people who “represent the community” speak in support. EVERY TIME. He also told us how many members of the community show up to oppose the LGBTQ agenda: ZERO, EVERY SINGLE TIME. He said, and I believe him, that it is really hard to resist the pressure from the activists when nobody shows up to oppose them and support him.
Now We Know
I had no idea. You probably didn’t have any idea either. So several members of the Club have pledged to attend the next Glendale School Board meeting which is scheduled for September 3, (https://www.gusd.net/Page/18). I know I’m going even though I don’t have any kids in the Glendale School District. I will do this because I know that if I don’t, if I allow Glendale to fall to the LGBTQ agenda, targeting our own school board will be that much easier. You can be sure that they’re coming for us, and that if we remain ignorant, isolated and inert they will take us down in turn.
American Citizen’s Power is Fun!
Look, friend, I know you’re busy, you already have a full and absorbing life and time is in short supply just as it has been since the Big Bang kicked the whole show into high gear. The issue of education is not by a long shot the only critical issue facing us. But it is one that we can address immediately, locally, effectively – and win. It is a building block that will lead to other building blocks that will lead to still others. This is American power at work, and I want you to be part of it. Its going to be fun!
Become a GBRA Member
That’s why I’m extending this invitation to you to become a member of the Glendale Burbank Republican Assembly for the ridiculous price of less than 7¢ a day. Seriously, at that price you should join twice! Just look at all the benefits membership offers, which you can’t get anywhere else:
You get to meet and regularly hang out with like minded people who share your Republican view point and who support and celebrate our common American values.
You get regularly informed about what is going on at all levels where culture and politics touch your community, your business, your family and your life.
You get the opportunity to act in solidarity with people working to improve the community.
You get to be a part of the long and honorable American tradition of citizens exercising civic authority and self rule instead of being a passive, discontented observer.
Annual BBQ picnic at Jeffers Estate
But there’s more. I also want to invite you, whether you decide to join the GBRA or not, to attend our annual BBQ picnic at Jeffers estate on Sunday September 15th. Yes! There’s fun and games and food and drink too. And and Sonny Sardo’s band to provide music, and dancing if you don’t mind everybody watching. It will be the perfect place to meet Republicans from all over and fun for the whole family.
Special guest George Papadopuolos
Oh, did I forget to mention that George Papadopoulos will be attending the picnic at Jeffers Estate? Mr. Papadopoulos did jail time for the crime of being on the foreign policy advisory panel to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. I am very much looking forward to hearing his perspective on the events that made him so painfully famous. I hope you won’t miss this opportunity!
Three Chances to Win a Beautiful Patriotic American Eagle
But that’s not all! It just wouldn’t be right if we let you enjoy all these great benefits without the chance to take home one of only three wonderful patriotic eagle sculptures. It would absolutely enhance the beauty and patriotic ambiance of your home and become a treasured heirloom to be passed on the the next generation that we are working so hard for. All you have to do is register as a GBRA Club member before midnight September 14, 2019 and you will be automatically entered in the raffle which will take place on September 15th at the Jeffers Estate BBQ party. Only one per household, need not be present to win. Remember, only three are available and for a limited time. I’m not tired of winning and I’m sure you aren’t either.

Chairman, New Member Outreach Committee
P.S. Don’t forget that we have work to do about the Glendale School Board meeting on September 3rd (more info here: https://www.gusd.net/Page/18) just one of our great benefits: you get to actually act to make a difference in the lives of our kids. As you think ahead to the years ahead you know you will look back on these days, these glorious days, and feel proud of the work you and I and the rest of us will have done together.
Progressivism, formerly known as Liberalism, is a death cult, as is Marxism in all its manifestations. “Formerly known as” because its bitter, deadly fruits were becoming just a tad too well known so it was necessary to swap the moniker, the mask, for something fresher. No matter, it is all the same old serpent, regardless how you dress it up. It is designed to kill, its sole purpose is to kill, its aim and goal is death, misery and despair. Robert Conquest had it right: the four great accomplishments of Communism are, always and everywhere, famine, terror, mass murder and failure, failure, failure.
As Eve was seduced by the serpent and persuaded her husband to give the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil at taste, thereby ushering sin and death into the world, just so does that same serpent tempt millions to take a bite of Socialism to their ultimate destruction, about 150,000,000 so far. One hundred and fifty million. Just as Eve could not say “No” to the blandishments of the serpent, and Adam did not say “No” to the pleading of his wife, just so millions say “Yes”, only because millions more say nothing at all.
I’m looking at you, Silent Majority.
Oh, granted, they have us out organized six ways from Sunday, and always did. Or rather, we were organized in different ways for different purposes. They are organized for Revolution, the great cause of ushering in the Glorious World of Next Tuesday. We were organized to build our businesses, work our jobs, join our associations of interest, raise our families and worship our God. None of that interests them except in so far as they need to destroy it to build their perfect Hell of a world.
To do that they have their corrosive fingers in every pie, seeking how better to corrupt and poison it. Their aim is to crash the system and so reduce us to such a state of hunger and terror that we will demand that someone, anyone, step in and restore the very public services they destroyed. And of course they will have just who the desperate public will clamor for, ready in the wings to step into the light and restore order, so long all the rest of us cede or rights to make way for the restoration order.
We aren’t there yet, though we did have Immaculate Barry, so like a god, who was the one we had been waiting for. He set the stage for the Hilldebeast, whose greatest ambition was and remains to be the spider at the center of the biggest web and of every web. Game of Thrones ain’t in it. Their hour has passed. You can bet that whoever they are going to trot out it won’t be one of the clowns now capering across the campaign trail. Their dream is out nightmare.
But even as they tighten their grip on the institutions of our nation, culture and civilization, the plan is collapsing. It may not look like it, they seem still to be in the ascendant everywhere, but they are losing. One of the tells is their panic about President Trump. Another is the importance ascribed to the Broad Squad. Another is their panic about just about everything.
With good reason. Every institution they infiltrate they destroy. Look at Gillette. Two Social justice themed ads and the company loses 8 billion dollars. When the attempt to destroy companies that oppose their twisted values, those companies thrive, witness Chick-fil-A, now the number 1 fast food restaurant in the country. I had never heard of until the Gay Mafia decided to call a national boycott because their CEO is a Christian who does not support the same sex simulation of marriage, they had their best day ever in the history of the company.
People are noticing that the Left’s formula doesn’t benefit them, and they are rejecting it in ever greater numbers. It doesn’t work, it can’t work it will never work. Although there are many useful idiots who support the madness, especially in academe, increasingly ordinary people recognize that the left is some kind of scam and are instinctively turning away from it. Some of those who do walk away do so at great personal cost. And some who do so triumph despite the cost.
We tend to get really focused on the battle we are waging to retain and restore our nation to a functioning Constitutional Republic, getting all wrapped up in who’s said what and who else has done what outrage. I know I certainly do. Thus it is a relief when somebody puts the situation into perspective by opening my eyes to the bigger picture. Such a man is Fr. Richard Heiman of Madison, WI.
Got your attention yet? Sure as Hell got mine. Click on the heading to go to his article. Some snippets:
There is no question that this is a VERY strong demonic force we are facing today … one that has managed to invade the highest ranks of the Catholic hierarchy. Yet, far too many remain oblivious as to what is unfolding in our times. Venerable Fulton Sheen (as heard in the video below) shines a bright light on why this is …
“Why is it that so few realize the seriousness of our present crisis? Partly because men do not want to believe their own times are wicked, partly because it involves too much self-accusation, and principally because they have no standards outside of themselves by which to measure their times. Only those who live by faith really know what is happening in the world … The great masses without faith are unconscious of the destructive processes going on.”
But its not just the hierarchy of the Catholic Church that’s been infiltrated, its everywhere, all our institutions, our entire culture. Some of my valued readers are going to be put off by the term “demonic” as too Medieval, outdated in our modern ‘scientific’ world. Fine, call it what you will, but look around. What do you see? There is a real cause and effect going on here, and those who don’t recognize it won’t be able to adequately, let alone successfully, oppose and defeat the forces arrayed against us.
And, precisely during the time this NuChurch (Sheen refers to it as an “Ape of the Church” in the video below) was being ushered in, a real demonic force entered the world. On “witches night,” April 30, 1966, exactly 50 years from the Angel’s (believed to be St. Michael) appearance to the children in Fatima in 1916, Anton LaVey founded the “First Satanic Church” in San Francisco, CA. Required reading for members was “The Satanic Bible.” The central theme of the Satanic Bible is, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”
Remember the Ritual Abuse discussions of the early 1990’s? It was all brushed under the rug as being the frenzied imaginings of mentally unstable people. It wasn’t, I was there. We forgot all about it, and laughed at the ‘doctrine’ of evil . But now, suddenly, we have Jeffrey Epstein acting as a major node in a worldwide network sex trafficking underage kids. We have Drag Queen Story Hours in public libraries all across the country. We have spirit cooking practiced by high government officials. If your imagination isn’t frenzied by now you’ve got problems.
Far from being something we check off on a to-do list, what we are about today is nothing less than a call to arms: to spiritual arms. We are living in a time and place of intense spiritual battle, and only in taking up spiritual arms will we alleviate the spiritual disease that is at the root of so much of the physical and mental suffering in the world today.
Again, this is not a political battle … This. Is. Spiritual. Warfare!
This is total war, and we must use every arm in our arsenal to win: political, cultural, yes. But first and foremost, spiritual. The Psalmist says, “If the LORD does not build the house in vain to the builders labor.” Prayer and fasting, especially for those in government, is a key strategy without which we will accomplish nothing.

The Demoncrats have been very successful at making California a one party State, which does not mean that some measure of victory is possible for Republicans. It does mean that it winning will be hard work. Over at the Election Forum Blog Craig Huey, always worth a read, lays out Six Little Known Strategies for Winning in 2020, some of which I shamelessly excerpt below, but get over there and read the whole thing.
Essential 1: Define our message – We have the solutions to the biggest issues.Conservatives, libertarians and Christians don’t need to change their message to look more like the Democrat Socialists’ anti-Trump message of Democrat Socialist social and economic values.Instead, we need to focus on what is relevant and important to people: solutions to big issues.Conservatives, libertarians and Christians have answers to growing economic dangers. Democrat Socialists want more rules and regulations and a “nanny state” fed by higher taxes. They want to kill business with increasing minimum wages. They want to make taxpayers pay for ridiculous bureaucratic jobs, “free” healthcare for all … and more.Conservatives, libertarians and Christians have the answers to our massive, historic debt of $741 billion. They know how to boost the economy and create more jobs with policies that encourage new innovation and business growth.Under President Trump, the economy has boomed. Employment rates – especially for blacks and Hispanics – are at a high. New businesses are thriving.Conservatives, libertarians and Christians need to stand for something – to help restore the American dream.They need to regroup and push a message of job growth and lowered taxes to encourage economic growth.They also have to reach out to a wider range of voters with a message of freedom and lower taxes … as well as better schools and safer communities.For Hispanics, pro-life, pro-economic opportunity and pro-family are key issues.For Evangelical Christian and conservative Catholics: life, religious freedom, pro- Israel, helping the persecuted Church and who sits on the U.S. Supreme Court are among the top non-negotiable issues.We have the right messaging on health. We have the right messaging on education. We have the right messaging on so many different key issues that the Democrat Socialists are running with … and we have the right answers.Essential 2: Revitalize the Republican Party.Conservatives need to focus on training and mobilization for the next generation.We need to use data for targeted digital marketing, text messaging and direct mail.We need to make phone calls and go door-to-door. We must have data collection, better marketing, a better Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign – or we will lose.I hold workshops to train millennials in advanced marketing and advertising tactics for political campaigns. We need to hold more of these kinds of workshops, to educate and inform conservatives, libertarians and Christians how to be effective.For too long, conservatives, libertarians and Christians have been identified with a narrow set of issues.Now, we need to stand for something – to help restore the American dream.Essential 3: Register people to vote.Democrat Socialist organizations purposefully collect data. They go door-to-door in some neighborhoods, contact people on the phone, hold potlucks and community forums and sign people up for Obamacare and other social services to collect data.Then they find out who isn’t registered to vote … or who is an infrequent voter…And they make sure everyone is registered to vote … and does vote on election day.They make sure people get vote-by-mail ballots.We need to do a better job of educating and informing non-registered conservatives, libertarians and Christians on how to vote for people who will uphold their beliefs.Ballot harvesting should not be allowed … but it is. And Democrat Socialists are going to use it.That’s why we need to use the same tactic, or we’re going to see another “blue tsunami.” We need to help people to register to vote – especially at churches, where there are millions of potential voters who aren’t voting.Through election time, churches, small groups and individual ministries can educate people how to vote their values and help people fill out their ballots and turn them in. And, the Sunday before election time, churches can designate a special “Ballot Sunday” where congregants can bring their ballots to church to fill them out and turn them in.Essential 4: Make it easy to know who to vote for.Democrat Socialists created powerful, unified voter guides to get out the vote (GOTV).We must do the same thing. People want trusted advice.My websites, JudgeVoterGuide.com, CraigHuey.com and ElectionForum.org had close to 1 million voters using our recommendations.This number must be greatly multiplied … reaching voters nationwide.We need to hold events and educate voters so that they know how to elect conservatives, libertarians and Christian candidates.Essential 5: We need to use the most advanced marketing possible.We need to outdo the Democrat Socialists in their branding and positioning, in their outreach and in their marketing efforts.Trump’s team outperformed Hillary’s team – a team that was 4 years behind all the great new advances.One of the most advanced strategic tactics I use is called “geo-fencing,” which sends targeted videos by Facebook, pre-roll and Google to the cell phones of people who have visited certain locations or events, such as churches.This high-level digital strategy has allowed me to reach voters with a targeted, relevant and critical message they need to hear.For example, I ran a campaign for a conservative candidate with zero name- recognition and less than $100,000. He was running against three well-known candidates and the Republican establishment.And yet, he nearly made it to the top two – which in California, is a nearly impossible mission.How did I do it?First, I tied his campaign to a petition against California’s horrific “Ban the Bible” bill.Then, I geo-fenced residents of the district he was running in who had gone to Greg Laurie’s Harvest Crusade and Franklin Graham’s crusade.I also geo-fenced over 50 churches in the same area, targeting people who had gone to church in the past 6 months. We reached 95,000 people with Facebook ads, pre-rolls ads and Google ads for this candidate’s campaign.The results were amazing: 942,000 impressions of the campaign … and 288,000 video views.If we use geo-targeting in 2020 to GOTV and spread our message, the results could be extraordinary.But we need to start right now in order to stop the blue tsunami from gathering strength and size.Essential 6: Win the Evangelical vote.A war has been waged on Christianity in this country – against individual Christians, Christian values, homeschooling, churches, Christian businesses and more.Conservatives, libertarians and Christians need to win the Evangelical vote with their pro-faith, pro-family and pro-freedom message.This includes mobilizing the Evangelical voter.Unfortunately, many Evangelicals do not vote. In fact, 45-55% of 80 million Evangelical voters do not vote.Trump knew how to reach the Evangelicals in the 2016 election. He ran on a pro- life, pro-religious freedom platform that spoke to Christians who are opposed to abortion and coming under increasing attack for their faith.And he won because of the advanced GOTV outreach he did to Evangelicals in key swing states.Now, we need to educate Christians on how to vote from a Biblical worldview on core issues like abortion, the sanctity of life, Israel, helping the persecuted church and Christian civil liberties.And, we need to help wake up pastors to speak out and speak up for family values.One of the things I do to mobilize Evangelicals is to hold Election Forum events at churches to educate Christians on how to vote their values. In fact, 81% of Evangelicals will vote Republican, if motivated and instructed on how to vote.The problem is, many of them don’t know how to vote, and don’t know what kind of an impact they can have on their city, state and nation.The #1 thing to do that will completely transform the vote is church ballot harvesting.Before the election, everyone brings the ballot. They fill it out (with a voter guide) and give it to the pastor to hand-deliver. 200–20,000 ballots can be done at one time!Do Something – Be Proactive and Make a Difference
The big problem with Jeffrey Epstein’s “suicide” isn’t so much that the Clinton crime family rubbed out another witness, but that it undermines confidence in the legitimacy of government and law. Let’s not be coy about it, this was a hit to silence a witness. Epstein was famous for sex trafficking underage kids for the rich and powerful. Bill Clinton, The Bubba of Scuzz took no fewer than 26 trips on Epstein’s Lolita Express, and Hillary, Huma in tow, six. You can bet that three people were absolutely unsurprised by Epstein’s mysterious death, Bill, Hillary and Epstein himself; he had to have seen it coming.
Most people who follow politics and who are not rabid Clintonista Zombies know that the Clinton Crime Family is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg and that the reason they haven’t been brought to justice is that hours before testifying witnesses suffer from a sudden onset of Arkancide. In the present instance the problem the Clinton’s have is that even though there are no witnesses (yet) to Epstein’s death, his death is so untimely, so unlikely and so public that it serves as a flashing red arrow pointing at the Epstein associates with the most to lose.
Epstein’s death points not only to the most likely puppetmasters, but to the absolute inability of the organs of justice and law enforcement to protect a witness and carry out their most basic duties in the face of corrumpt political actors. If someone as wealthy, famous and well connected cannot be protected then neither can any of the rest of us “little people” without those benefits. The system has shown itself not only powerless, but corrupt and illegitimate. The public cannot trust the police, the justice system or, by extension, any of the organs of government.
“We the People” as the source of power in government has been replaced by “The Shadowy, Anonymous Deep State”. But power is not the same as legitimacy, as Hong Kong is demonstrating to the Chinese Communist government. Government requires the consent of the governed, and the governed consent only so long as government plays by the rules the governed have agreed to, the social contract. In the American system of government the governed grant legitimacy to the government on terms specified by the US Constitution. The Constitution is the highest law in the land, and no one is above the law.
Except that some clearly deem themselves above the law. Even though they don’t name themselves, don’t publicly declare their law exempt status and dutifully pay lip service to the law, their blatant disregard for and contempt of the law marks them as lawless. All can see them flouting the law and suffering no consequences .
But a republic; the United States is a Constitutional Republic; is governed not by the will of a single man, or a gang of powerful men, or a mob, but by laws. What citizen, up to this point an adherent of the law, can consider himself anything other than a chump for his fidelity? Who can not think, if they can get away with it, why not me? Why should I be the good boy when all around everyone else is getting away with murder? To be believable not only must justice be done, it must be seen to be done.
For decades the Marxists have been successfully working a Gramscian strategy of demoralizing America, and more recently of destabilizing her, leading to a manufactured crisis that would enable a strong man to seize the reins of power at the citizen’s demand in order to “save” them. But now those who have been groomed to power now find themselves abhorred by the people who should have acclaimed them. And the culture is moving rapidly into crisis that now looks to have a different outcome than the one originally envisioned.
