Is This Radical Israel?

 

You travel around the universe, especially the universities and other higher education centers, leftist groups, European Human Rights NGOs registered as Israeli, left political parties throughout Europe and even peoples in parts of Asia, Africa and planets beyond where they have never met, seen or known anyone who has known a Jew and you will find anti-Semites often disguising their hatreds as simple disagreements or objections with the Israeli acts. These are where you will hear the horror stories about the IDF destroying schools, Mosques, hospitals, refugee centers and other places where there were only civilians, murdering thousands of innocents. Such was the Jenin massacre where it was claimed at the peak of the accusation to have slaughtered over five-thousand innocent civilians. The United Nations report, after an extensive search, checking their findings and checking them twice, reviewing every angle they could attempting to validate the claims of a slaughter produced a small surprise. Their end report told of less than five hundred total dead and injured and almost every last death was a PLO fighter or IDF soldier and the majority of the civilian deaths resulted from booby-traps being detonated as soon as IDF soldiers walked into the houses to escort the family to safety, triggering the trap. The families, it was discovered, were warned by the PLO fighters that if they attempted to leave the house they would be shot immediately. This was just another example of using the civilians as bait or shields disregarding any value their lives meant to the PLO which was apparently less value than the IDF placed value on these civilian lives.

 

Wolff Heintschel von Heinegg, a military law expert at European University Viadrina in Frankfurt, Germany wrote about his results in his researching the complaint that the IDF “is setting an unreasonable precedent for other democratic countries of the world who may also be fighting in asymmetric wars against brutal non-state actors who abuse these laws.” Below are three videos of reports made before the United Nations during one of their investigations into the Gaza conflict seeking and eventually authoring a scathing report blaming Israel of disproportional use of force. During reporters coverage of the Gaza War with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist groups, the reporters often appeared to be demanding to know why there were so few Israelis, or as one slipped and asked, so few Jews being killed.

 

 

 

 

But what can a couple of experts possibly know or even understand of the IDF and their proven disproportional use of force where they have always struck back with excessive force. The reporters reporting out of Gaza have seen the areas struck by Israel which were already cleansed of military equipment. The main hospital strike ended up being caused by one of four MLRS system rockets which had gone dreadfully wrong, but why admit their misfire when one can reasonably claim the damage was from an Israeli artillery shell intentionally targeting the hospital. Basically what we are attempting to point out that if one wishes to prove that Israeli IDF troops are well trained, moral, and very conscious as to the legal and moral limitations and demands on a soldier, that is not difficult. On the other hand, should one be attempting to prove the opposite, that too has plenty of allies who can be tracked at any United Nations hearing into a Gaza War or a confab or meeting. The truth as far as we have been capable of ascertaining has been that there are IDF soldiers who act improperly and fail to reach and even surpass all forms of expectations, especially human rights, protection of the innocent and protection of civilians in all manners and abilities. When these soldiers act improperly, they are charged with criminal neglect or worse, tried, and should they be found guilty, sentenced and sent to prison in a special section as a means of protecting their lives. When a soldier is charged with criminal use of force, the sad reality is Israeli leadership is so paranoid that as soon there is a single question about the use of deadly force, the soldier is charged before the investigation has completed; and in a recent case, even before the investigation was launched, he was arrested within hours of the incident in question. These are the examples of the presumed immoral Israeli Defense Force.

 

Then there are the charges which are plain and simple anti-Semitism as well as anti-Israel concerning special Israeli Defense Forces units which are dispatched to perform search and rescue as well as set up a field hospital often as good if not better than any hospital the nation might have had operating before the disaster. Most people have read about George Exantus from Haiti who danced for a living and lost a leg and was fitted with a special prosthetic which had him back dancing in no time (see below). He was just one of many life-saving, both professionally and literally, which became the best Israeli public relations world-wide. The Israelis were in the Philippines after a devastating typhoon and in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami which blew up one of the nuclear power plants causing enormous problems and recently Nepal after the Everest earthquake. Israel has also assisted over the years in Turkey, Iraq, and other predominantly Muslim nations around the globe. Here again there are those who claim that Israel only sends physicians and a full field hospital setup in order to steal organs, perfectly good organs including but not limited to eyes. Some have claimed these organs are used to assist injured Israelis in need of these body parts while the really fanciful have resurrected the anti-Semitic Golem myth which were conjured or built (see image under of video).

So, the evidence paints the Israeli military as being ethical and despite this being the result of United Nations investigations amongst others, that has not prevented Israel’s detractors from claiming the worst of all possible claims including, but not limited to, genocide, pedophilia, organ harvesting and other equally disgusting and distressing accusations. Israel has been questioned on her claim to being the homeland of the Jews, the descendants of the Hebrews who were led by Moses out of Mizraim (Hebrew for Egypt: מִצְרַיִם/מִצְרָיִם) and by Joshua when crossing the Jordan River. There are claims that special and important Jews worked with the Nazis to rid them of the lesser Jews before they would lead a new kinder, gentler Jew freed from the lesser genes which infected most of the Jews. There have been those who have claimed they will bring a second Holocaust on the Jews while claiming there never was a first Holocaust in Germany during World War II. There are those who denied the crematoria which was why upon visiting the first concentration camp, Commander of the Allies in Europe during World War II General Dwight David Eisenhower ordered his officers in all units in the European Theater, he stated,

 

. . .the most interesting—although horrible—sight that I encountered during the trip was a visit to a German internment camp near Gotha. The things I saw beggar description.

While I was touring the camp I encountered three men who had been inmates and by one ruse or another had made their escape. I interviewed them through an interpreter. The visual evidence and the verbal testimony of starvation, cruelty and bestiality were so overpowering as to leave me a bit sick.

In one room, where they were piled up twenty or thirty naked men, killed by starvation, George Patton would not even enter. He said that he would get sick if he did so.

I made the visit deliberately, in order to be in a position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to “propaganda.”

 

Were General Eisenhower alive today, I am sure that he would be touring Europe and the rest of the world, wherever Holocaust denial rose its vile head and he would insist on presenting the official evidence which still exists somewhere within the military evidence collected during and immediately after the war. The Concentration Camps horrified General Eisenhower as they did Generals Paton and Bradly and most of the other officers. General Eisenhower desired for as many as possible to witness the horrors and to put their reactions on paper for the official record as this would one day be swept away as an insignificant event or a fictitious invention of the world Jewry. There is always that larger than life “World Jewry,” as if there is a cabal of Jews running the world through means which are as mysterious as they are diabolical. These anti-Semites will claim that there exists a Jewish mafia style group of Jews who lead the rest and plan every major set of events, control the climate, have a base on the far side of the Moon, use smaller ships to reach the Moon Base and Mother Ship, have interstellar ships and that nobody in any government does anything before receiving their orders from this small group which makes up under 0.2% of world population. We may exceed any and all expectations and statistical analysis but this is due to diligence, emphasis on education and a strong work ethic, not to magic or other mysterious mystical trickery. There is no mystery to how and why Jews lead most of professions requiring higher education.

Ya’alon Backhand Slaps Bibi and Israel

 

The dust-up in Israel started small, as these things almost always do, then grew exponentially before exploding onto every newswire almost as fast as the anti-Zionist, anti-Israel and anti-Semitic haters were twittering and alternately flooding the electronic air salivating at their fresh meat which was falling into their laps by the minute. The initial comment was made by IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan commented at a Holocaust Remembrance Day memorial. The unkempt and unacceptable comment made all the worse by coming from IDF Deputy Chief of Staff was, “If there’s something that frightens me about Holocaust remembrance it’s the recognition of the revolting processes that occurred in Europe in general, and particularly in Germany, back then – 70, 80 and 90 years ago – and finding signs of them here among us today in 2016.” There were reactions to the statement but nothing for reporters to write home, or the office, about as the General backtracked off and claimed he worded his comments poorly. That would have been the end of it had it been allowed to die a natural death but such was not to be the case.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu made a discreet demand that military officers, security officers and other ranking security personnel, and double for the general staff, need watch their comments and be wary that what they say could be harmful for Israel. He did not call General Golan out or place him on the carpet for a dressing down, just a quiet semi-public statement. Then the Defense Minister felt he should defend the honor of his general staff. The thing is that too many high ranking military and security personnel both still in service or recently retired have made references equating Israel to many unsavory references such a Nazis amongst others. Ya’alon calling for the Generals and other officers to speak their minds even if everything they say runs contrary to the ruling government positions. This was an assault made directly challenging the Prime Minister which would normally have that Minister not only removed from his position but removed from the Likud Party and any government position with the ruling coalition. Instead Prime Minister Netanyahu offered Ya’alon the position of Foreign Minister after removing him from his position as Defense Minister which was to be given to Avigdor Lieberman in exchange for bringing his Yisrael Beiteinu Party into the coalition strengthening their hold on power and making it a little more secure. Ya’alon refused the change of ministerial position and instead left the government but it was his parting statements made to the media which were the makings of a disaster and a scandal.

Of Ya’alon’s parting shots, the first was used as an initial shot across Prime Minister Netanyahu’s bow stating, “To my great regret, extremist and dangerous forces have taken over Israel and the Likud movement.” This was his follow-up Benjamin Netanyahu claiming his having a, “lack of confidence” in the government’s ruling coalition, the Prime Minister’s decision-making and morals and fearing the coming cruel submission of the officers in what he had come to view as his own Israeli Defense Force (IDF). Perhaps that was where the problem really began, Ya’alon saw the IDF as his own personal friends and was more to serve him and be his political weapons to use to ascertain the leadership of Likud and being the new Prime Minister. He apparently had it all figured out except for the part where the military does not set policy, it carries out policies given them by the government and serves the people of Israel, all of them. But Ya’alon was nowhere near finished with the attacks. His next whine complained stating to the delight of all IDF and Israel detractors, “I fought with all my might against manifestations of extremism, violence and racism in Israeli society, which are threatening its sturdiness and trickling into the armed forces, hurting it already,” We are not quite sure what Israel he resides within but the people we know hold no animus against anyone or any group unless some individual has committed an act of unfounded violence against others as such a person would be a pariah here just as it would in almost any civil society.

 

This was far from the first time a conflict was spawned by IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan; as back in 2006, IDF Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan said it was “intolerable” that Israeli soldiers place Palestinian civilians in harm’s way instead of themselves: “In the presence of civilians we take risks upon ourselves, and rightly so. It’s unacceptable that in the name of preventing risk we would decide that now we are going to mow down an apartment building. You would kill women, children, those involved. It’s intolerable.” The item about Minister Ya’alon’s statement is that, as he was a member of the government and in the Cabinet of the Prime Minister, everything he said was news worthy and considered important. When a Defense Minister supports statements made against the ruling coalition the media properly takes note and this makes the coalition weaker and weakens the Prime Minister. Such a statement would have been denounced even if stated by the leader of the opposition as such a statement against the Prime Minister meant to weaken his hold on power and directly challenging him is asking for the full weight to be brought against one. Now, in the end, Prime Minister Netanyahu survived this assault and potential hostile take-over of the government with graceful style and also strengthened the ruling coalition by adding the Yisrael Beiteinu Party to the coalition adding to the original slim margin making the defection of one minister less of a challenge. By also offering Ya’alon the position of Foreign Minister, Prime Minister Netanyahu was offering to lessen the blow of the removal from Defense Minister and was providing Ya’alon a promotion of sorts and a higher position according to many sources. This was not as much a declaration of disrespect of Ya’alon as he has now made it out to be but rather carefully guiding him within the Inner Cabinet from Defense to Foreign Minister which while bringing in another coalition member strengthens the coalition and this government definitely now is stronger for the shake-up.

 

Still there are some worrisome things worthy of note. The fact that the military had taken upon itself the mantle of ruling through media releases, embarrassing members of the Government and were very quickly running amuck was evidenced further by this entire incident. There had been previous attempts by leftists high in the military to rule or embarrass any government which was not to their liking and these moments had the gleeful coverage desired from the leftist media in Israel, Europe and beyond. One example as the chief of staff of then Israel Defense Forces, Gadi Eisenkot, in a lecture to high school students recently warned that “the IDF cannot speak in slogans such as ‘if someone comes to kill you, arise to kill them first’ (an edict taken from Talmud and reportedly used by rightwing supporters and not of the current government which has been quiet until recent about such statements, a potential mistake)” and said “I don’t want a soldier to empty a (rifle) magazine on a 13 year-old girl with scissors”. What is the effect of Eisenkot’s statement on an already anti-Semitic global public opinion, which daily charges Israel of a “disproportionate” response during the Third Intifada?

Such statements and other actions made by these upper echelon leftist officers follow the same path as did the Oslo Accords, the Roadmap and so many other attempts which take the form of placing Arab Palestinian demands and stipulations above the interests of the people of Israel and especially those residing in Judea and Samaria, then ceding lands to their control removing any Israeli claim no matter the correct and historically significant the Jewish claims to such lands and finally handing them excuses for murdering Jews before the international and often antagonistic media. Such insubordination while supported and loved by the members of the European Union and the individual governments as well as those who are backing efforts from the far left and right in the United States to tear down the relations and deep ties between the United States and Israel was a welcome series of events. The anti-Semites had a field day with comments such as those quoted above and will continue to take such statements to heart as they hurt any Zionist or Pro-Israel group. The IDF should have seen their ranking general staffs decimated as a cleaning out is in order should the Prime Minister desire to remold the military complex with generals more sympathetic to the Zionist cause and more in line with the government as many of these generals were likely left from when promotions to the general staff were made by left-leaning governments and are paying their empowering interests back in spades.

 

Whether the Prime Minister takes any moves to alter the General ranks is up to him and those he trusts. At least one excuse making, surrender firsters is no longer within the government poisoning it from within. We can all expect Ya’alon to continue and fulfill his threat to return and take power in the future, whether from within Likud or as head of a new faction was left unclear. It would not even be surprising to see his name as a new leader within Tzipi Livni’s ranks and her seemingly moribund Party. Wherever Ya’alon crawls off to, if it is outside of Likud or even if he remains in Likud it should be expected that he will join those unsavory post-Zionists who likely believe that Israel should be an open democracy as even should the Arab Islamists take control of the government they would be unable to remove the Jewish population and would rule in a similar manner as do current governments as the Constitution, a non-existent constitution which they likely were referring to the Basic Laws would still allow for freedom of speech, religion and all the other trappings of the Israeli multicultural society. There would be no problem if the Islamic State and Hamas came to power as the laws would constrain their actions. Yes, sounds simply Kumbaya and a few other campfire songs from summer camp back when we were all younger and dreams were large and Israel even less in size and was supported by the left as a socialist paradise. Israel is still a paradise with quite a few problems of which this is just one of the most damning to come to bear against our existence. We have survived as more diligent heads come from all sides with a clear vision of the threats; it is simply Ya’alon and a number of perfumed princes playing at general staff position who are necessarily a threat to each and every last one of us. That is our dog in this fight and we should never forget the extents that the leftists went to overthrow the elected government here and that was truly frightening. Slowly but inexorably many holding these positions are being removed from their seats of power and in time we may be in a different and better place and many here can hardly wait. Such is life here in Israel.

General Election General Feelings Deadly Deal

 

If one goes by the normal general election numbers and stick to what the election gurus and political pundits all know is the gospel truth, then Donald Trump and any Republican Presidential candidate is a lost cause. This is because if one takes the “known” and steady trended Democrat and Republican states electoral vote Hillary has a definitive advantage which would be near impossible to topple. Here are a few examples you can check for yourselves:
This excerpt was taken and quoted from In A Clinton-Trump Race, Just How Much Could The Map Change?, which contains numerous other statistics and suggestions of alternate paths other than ours which follows.

 

It’s the number of electoral votes of 18 states (plus the ever-blue District of Columbia) that have voted Democratic in each of the last six presidential elections. And it leaves a Democratic nominee just a Florida-shy (29 electoral votes) of winning the presidency.
Those 18 states (worth a collective 242 electoral votes): California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.
Meanwhile, only 13 states (worth a collective 103 electoral votes) have voted Republican each of the last six times: Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

 

Additional information, numbers and stock predictions and analysis can be read in Trump seemed impervious during the primaries, but forecasts for electoral votes paint a bleak picture.

 

Presidential Electoral Map 2016

Presidential Electoral Map 2016

 

Now, let us return back to the more unseen elsewhere BTC analysis and path forward. We do not doubt any of these dire predictions and numbers analyzed from trends and other variables, and that is the main word, variables, as they vary. Change is the one guarantee in politics. President Reagan changed the trending tides in the 1980 elections. William Jefferson Clinton took on an impossible to win challenge and changed the tide back followed by George W. Bush and then President Obama who has placed us at this election, one with no actual candidate running for their reelection to the Presidency, with President Obama being prevented running by the Constitution as Amended in Amendment XXII. Finally, a Constitutional limit President Obama appears to be stuck fulfilling. So there is Queen Hillary the Prevaricator and Clown Trump the Irreverent as the two main party candidates essentially from which to choose. Conventional wisdom predicts that Hillary has the election in the bag with her automatic Democratic Party states all but guaranteed while Trump is seen as vulnerable in even the most conservative and natural strongholds of Republican power such as Oklahoma and Wyoming. Our suggestion is adapt a campaign for Trump to win while those coaching Hillary will send her mostly to four or maybe five states with the top three being Ohio, Pennsylvania and the most crucial, Florida. It is said that no candidate can win without Florida. But is all this as sewn up as the mainstream pundits and analyzers and even campaign chiefs claim. If that is their thinking then the United States had best become very comfortable with the sound of President Hillary Clinton for eight years and Democrats into the future as far as anybody can predict. We all know that politics are a whole lot more volatile than that prediction or the Whig Party would still be in the White House and almost all the Presidents would be from Virginia as that was the trend early on.

 

Donald Trump, who is the candidate we will mostly address as his is the more difficult Presidency to wring out electorally, will need to challenge the punditry and experts from the start. Sure the first state he could talk from might be Florida following the wisdom that no candidate wins without Florida. If he does his next two stops should be touted as his message to America on how to unite everybody around a true moderate who will choose solid middle of the road people for his advisors from New York and California. He could list people such as Ben Carson for Surgeon General and other such calm, intelligent and well established and accepted experts in a number of second tier Cabinet Posts. Trump should easily know of people who would accept an appointment to Secretary of Labor, Commerce and Health and Human Services and even Secretary of Defense, a top tier position where he would have any number of retired military people from which to choose. The rationale behind naming these people and appointments with them present would calm the populace and defuse the claims that he is impossible and would be wild and out of control where these appointments would show reason and solid advice. That along with a more restrained and intelligently packaged Trump, with the same bravado, but this time turning top these appointees as his Brain Trust would settle his picture for those watching, and would be gobbled up by an ever hungry media, as this would be against all past trends for a campaign to name appointees early in the campaign. Such names would also point out the due diligence Trump had to have used in making these choices and planning ahead. Something he is claimed to not possess is such planning which is how he built skyscrapers across his properties. He plans, that should have been obvious, but apparently voters are a suspicious lot or totally clueless and need to be spoon fed, neither is a positive assessment.

 

Clinton vs Trump

Actually it would be these challenges in New York and California that once either of these states races tighten in polling, and trust us, they would, then Hillary would have to run there and campaign in frantic and shrillary tones for which she is famous. Watching her changing to adapt to match the location and often slipping into the wrong ones, would be great entertainment. The thinking is that with his business connections and dealings he could challenge Hillary in New York as the northern three-quarters of the state is fairly conservative and it is just New York City that tilts the state Democrat and he could crack that open as there must be a large number of middle of the road normally Democrat voters who could be swayed from Hillary with a decent effort. Even New Jersey might be playable though that is highly doubtful but a few trips into the northern end of the State might bleed support across in The City.

 

California, on the other hand, has a sizeable conservative area of voters who are likely sick of the water wars played by President Obama on the state when they were in a dire need and he all but cut off water to the state. Add in the numbers of Hollywood actors, directors, producers and the like who Trump could get to campaign for him and this along with Trump’s affability on the stump would put California in play. Face facts, no Democrat wins the Presidency without both New York and California in this modern era and both have more than enough electoral delegates to sink Florida off the map and put Trump into the White House. People can point to all the negatives they want, Trump in the White House would send a message which would terrorize the enemies of America and freedom. Our friends would be able to sleep at night knowing that the United States had their backs and was under sane foreign policy again and this message would be carried by the people who decide for Trump which way is up and which way is forward and allow him to choose a mix of the two. If we have Trump pegged, he would challenge these advisors to go out and make it ‘YUGE” and fulfill every last one of the up and forward policy proposals.

 

Trump could have Senator Cruz lock down Texas and possibly Oklahoma as well, and he could play off of Rubio or Jeb Bush if they refused to back and assist in his campaign and add them to the campaign to augment any plans already in the works as neither one has proven to be as effective as they viewed themselves. They would still be a plus as they are original combatants who had said less than flattering charges against The Donald. Perhaps we should reiterate our lack of a dog in this race. Should any of our dual citizen people even cast votes in the election, for whom and why has not reached the floor for debate as of yet except for a Congressman who is facing a challenge from the Republican elites, imagine we would like such a down to earth, home grown, religious, and independent conservative who votes almost identically as we would on every major and minor issues. Individual bills, we trust his sense and judgement, but he was no on amnesty, close the border, support traditional friends and generally right down the line. Our votes for President would likely prefer a ‘none of the above’ choice, as we stated here in We Need a None of the Above Election Ballot and originally around four years earlier, there is something about that four year thing that we cannot quite put our finger on…something about a White House?, anyways, back then we wrote Can I Vote “None of the Above”? Seems we will be revisiting that idea in 2020 or there about. I have a feeling this year ‘None of the Above’ could easily defeat either candidate and might even clear fifty percent which would have been a fabulous message to send about the choices we have been given in these farcical elections.

 

Unfortunately, the choices are what they are and we honestly believe that Donald Trump could tear away either or both New York and California and should try for a few other considered true blue Democrat states and at the least turn them purple. His efforts in such states could, and likely would, bring benefits in downstream elections and potentially swing a few elections to the Republicans where voter turnout has been lackadaisical in the recent past. Let’s face it, true conservatives have not had all that to vote for but voting against this year had a definite appeal beyond past years. Even some on the left feel they must oppose the Shrillary. Imagine four State of the Union addresses as well as numerous, ‘We can feel your pain, Bill and I,’ and ‘Our fellow Americans, in this time of upheaval, Bill and I…’ or, ‘It is my duty as your President to ignore Congress and the Supreme Court and continue to…’ What the ending commentary will be to those phrases, and these phrases are coming and they might very well be those exact phrases, is more Pablum which the media and masses sup upon. Which can do the least damage to an already all but terminally injured America limping forward in need of a transfusion of popularism and we have the Screech and the Jolly Joker as our candidates. This trend has been a set of elections for leader of the Free World which has devolved sinking ever lower with every election and the winning choice turning into ever greater disasters. Where it will end is obvious even to the most casual of observer. Continuing this downward spiral will become the death spiral leading to the next great upheaval which will blast the memory of any previous conflict from our collective memories.

 

There are one of two directions which the world might take in continuing to hurl itself at an ever faster pace towards that aforementioned conflagration where the United States, to quote a famous movie quote, may “Turn to the Dark Side Luke,” thus it becomes a force for evil. Another direction is where the United States and advanced Western World collapses and in the Far East begins the next Great War. This conflict between them and the remaining forces in the remains of Europe and across North America and most of Africa turns its forces to its east and rides into battle for Allah as the accursed Buddhists remain to be conquered now that Christianity has been subjected and surrendered to the Prophet and his deity, Allah. Neither future is attractive which is why we pray for the souls of America to activize and save their great nations and return the world to sanity. The only other choice after Europe succumbs, which she may not suffer herself to actually allow, and the United States is set upon next and also succumbs, leaves only Israel. Tiny little one or two Iranian super weapon strikes away from oblivion and being wiped from the map, Israel and her superior anti-missile technology and the faith in Hashem, will that once again be sufficient to save all? Where it ends is unknown to all but Hashem and all we can do is to carry out that we were meant to perform, not one step less. Oh, and if you can carry more, do so. Simple enough, but seemingly forgotten in this age of connectivity replacing activity, and concentration on the little screen replacing execution of the essentials around us in our lives, leads us into the darkness while we refuse to look up and notice. Perhaps this might be a rant for another article.
