“Kinder and gentler: Republicans soften tone on migrant crisis” This headline is from the Washington Examiner, dated 02 April 21 and is a prime example why the National Republican Party seriously needs an enema before they do any more damage. The first paragraph starts: “With few exceptions Republicans haven’t softened their position on the border (but, yes, they have)! They mostly blame Biden for attracting this migrant surge by signaling to the world that it would be easier to enter and remain in the United States once he took office.” What are Republicans proposing to do about it? A few GOP Senators went to the border but only Ted Cruz spoke up. Except for those very few, GOP politics look like they are returning to the old normal. By the tone of the above headline it seems the GOP is rushing back to embrace pre-Trump politics as usual, i.e.: kicking the can down the road without contesting the Democrat agenda. It shows coordination from the GOP and elite leadership and why they have not grasped the reason why the hated President Donald Trump was elected in the first place.
The first paragraph continues: A statement from the Republican National Committee (RNC) said: “Biden’s open borders agenda created this crisis in the first place, and now Biden is doubling down on the same destructive policies.” “We know what these policies will lead to, a further surge, a worsening crisis, and a continuing boom time for smugglers, gangs and traffickers, and Biden is to blame.” Republicans can talk, talk, talk looking like they and doing something but don’t expect them to do anything positive or go on record to stop this invasion.
Doing so might interrupt the comity of the DC cocktail circuit. The news article features Biden but Biden is a nobody. He’s an admitted crook, a sad creature now entering the mysterious realms of dementia concentrating on how he can mount stairs without stumbling. The total anti-American Communist government (Democrats) now holding the reins of federal power are intent on Americas social and economic conversion to socialism before 2022 lest Americans should wake up and conservative winners stop their treasonous criminality.
We know the surge of illegal migrants are mostly peasants seeking employment, not asylum seekers fleeing from anarchy. Many are criminal cartel smugglers of sex slaves, drugs and children. If a column of well fed (fat actually) immigrants, many with smart phones clutched in their chubby hands are coming here by invitation, then Biden’s claims of why he opened the border rings hollow. It begs the real reason why these well fed and well clothed illegals are really coming here: Because Democrats need voters and Republicans still think cheap labor. will keep them in office. So, what’s with this “kinder and gentler” nonsense?
For Republicans, the growing home building industry, where cheap labor (illegals) will sorely be needed, has the opened spigot of tax money they can share in as well, and maybe they can blame the Democrats. We can see the manipulative hand of big business capitalists of the New World Order crowd salivating at the prospects of a One World Government with them in charge.
For Democrats, I suspect it’s because Biden, Pelosi and Schumer know they have only a short window of opportunity to loot the US Treasury with their $1.9 trillion dollar Covid bill, followed by a $2 trillion bill under the guise of Infrastructure spending, then a $4 Trillion tax hike to pay off all failed bankrupt Blue State union retirement schemes. Sen Tom Cotton (R-Ar) has apparently laid up a proper bill requiring migrants seeking asylum: “to apply for protection before making the dangerous trek to our southern border.” Well, that’s a start! By the way, where’s the US Supreme Court? Don’t they have a dog in this fight like believability, trust, honor and integrity to
preserve? If the Supremes fail us, what do we have left? Nada!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

The 2020 election is barely over and for Republicans the 2022 race has already begun. Senator Rick Scott, former Governor of Florida is in my opinion, an effective conservative politician. He certainly was a good Governor in his day and deserves recognition for that. But now, he’s Co-Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and lends his name as such, for raising campaign funds for Republican senatorial candidates for 2022. That’s good, but with this caveat: they had better be Trumps candidates because whether Sen Scott realizes it or not, it is Trumps Republican Party. I mention that only because the literature sent to me by the RNSC under Sen Scotts name, failed to even mention President Trump at all.
The NRSC has for a long time, acted as a junior charter member of the Deep State supporting candidates that have already been in so long their arteries have ossified, or new ones who can’t wait to join the Elites Club and get wealthy. Until I see and recognize that they no longer support the “Elite” Republican Establishment, the RNSC will not be gifted with any donations from this Conservative, It’s the same old endless game, “they promise, we pay and then they’ll do what they want.”
I hope Sen Scott has not been in the DC swamp long enough to have become so mired in its anti-American corruption that he can’t see the way the conservative winds are blowing for the party. He may indeed be a Conservative but he’s also a Republican Senator and for the NRSC to appeal for funds under his name suggests that their fund raising efforts from the base, is woefully lacking and they’re appealing to Conservatives like me, to help refill their coffers. I was congratulated on being “unanimously selected by my peers” to lead the effort to win back a Republican Senate majority in the next election. Wow, I’m so honored. Then, they presented me with their BS national agenda ballot, every question designed to be “yes” for Republicans as opposed to the Democrat Socialist agenda where every question was to be checked off with a resounding “No.” I get that, but it’s a useless exercise that’s not fooling many of us.
I agree, it’s important that the House and Senate be returned to Conservative hands, not necessarily Republican ones, in order to put a stop to the Communist highjacking of America, trashing our constitutional protections and our government by representation in the name of the New World Order. Believe me, we’ll rarely see the term New World Order but what these Democrat Party clowns haven’t grasped yet is that Joe Biden is China’s emperor Ji Jingping’s ‘the merciless’ puppet agent and the New World Order, if it gets here, will quickly become Chinese.
But, I stray from my point, the necessary revitalization of the Republican party. Presently, a significant number of Deep State Republican “Establishment Elites,” long term Senators who have exceeded their shelf life, have decided to turn in their union cards and will either retire or not seek reelection. That brave band of courageous leaders include: Roy Blunt, 71, of Missouri, Ohio’s Rob Portman, 65, Richard Shelby, 86, of Alabama, Pat Toomey, 53, of Pennsylvania and Richard Burr, also 65, of No Carolina. Regrettably, we do not see the names of Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, Utah’s Mitt Romney, or Susan Collins of Maine on that august list.
Trump Republicans had better realize that those soon to be vacant seats, plus several others to be challenged, will be seriously targeted by Democrats. But, we have an opening here so, proper vetting of real Conservative candidates by state parties is essential. Leadership of those State GOP party organizations that tend to the “establishment” should be removed at the County, District and State Conventions. Now is the time for Party brutality, not after the show is over and the Communists have won again. We need fighters, a La Donald Trump, not wimps to carry the load for 2022. When we win, then we can help President Trump finish his mission to drain the swamp in 2024 and MAGA!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go organize and let’s win back America. The alternative is unthinkable! (30Mar21)

We have good news and bad news. The good news is that several RINO Senators, Richard Burr (R-NC), Rob Portman (R-OH), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Dick Shelby (R-AL) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) have all decided their usefulness as conservative politicians isn’t working. Some say their retirements will deal a major blow to the Republican establishment’s inner circle.
By God, I hope so! The bad news is I don’t see Mitt Romney’s name on that list. The operative notion in the above paragraph is the “Establishment Republicans inner circle.” What got these people into an “inner Circle?” Longevity in office? Because they are good guys or better statesmen? Naw, I don’t think so. It’s because they were willing to go along to get along.
These people, allegedly supporters of Republican Conservative principals, whose primary concern as Republicans was to Keep America Great, support their constituents and protect the American way, went astray! Their less than conservative voting records betray them!
They joined hands across the aisle with the Americas Cancel Culture party (Marxists) intent on just the opposite, Americas destruction. What possible blow to the Republican Party can their departures bring? None! With friends like those who needs enemies? The board is being swept clean of their type and so shall it be! They must be replaced with real conservatives.
What kept them there? Invitations to the cocktail circuit? When in power, committee or sub-committee chairmanships, bribery or other monetary rewards? Joe Biden made influence peddling a lucrative art form. Many Republicans apparently learned from his success, sought to ride the crest of Deep State security and monetary reward and now find themselves suddenly incapable of facing the growing fascism menace that the Progressives are throwing at ’em.
Not many people who want to get involved in government have Donald Trumps deep business insight into the decadent human behavior that draws other people into the sphere of the deep state Oligarchs. In Congress today the numbers can’t be counted on both hands. Jim Jordan comes to mind as does the fiery Marjory Taylor Greene. Ranking Republican McCarthy is the keeper of the House’s elite establishment Republicans and that remains ethereally fungible.
As Pelosi’s Congress hasn’t yet risen above the level of her obsession with Trump Derangement Syndrome, passing anti-American spending bills to bankrupt America and scaring the nation with fears of horrible new Covid strains lurking just over the horizon, is not a good platform for the newest Republican women just elected, to start their own individual voting records.
The Democrat Party is evil. Pelosi wants to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene completely from Congress because of her feisty denouncement of her Marxists programs destroying America, but not remove Eric Swallwell for being a Chinese spy or worse, a Chinese dupe, a fellow traveler who can be appealed to by his carnal desires for Fang – Fang and other honey traps.
On the State level, two Blue State governors, Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo, three if we count Virginia’s Gov. Northern who refused to resign, still stubbornly run their states like dictators and all three have been challenged for being either being politically incorrect, ie: inappropriately touching women, killing thousands of seniors, or simply ruining their States GDP into the dirt. Who replaces these corrupt people when the time comes? Conservatives better start looking for more Donald Trumps and Marjory Taylor Greens. They’re out there, Remember, keeping our freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (21Mar21)

Liberal newspaper continues to push rejected illegal alien-friendly legislation
The morning after Rep Kasey Carpenter’s “instate tuition” bill formally expired due to an absence of Rules Committee attention, Greg Bluestein lamented the GOP had lost a chance to win over more immigrants and Latino voters. A real Mensch, Bluestein is always very concerned about the Republican’s well being.
In Friday’s online edition of the ‘Capitol Recap,’ AJC Premium Editor Jim Denery did a rerun of the Bluestein goop. It was then printed in the Sunday edition.
Neither of them seem to understand or care that Kasey Carpenter is a shameless huckster. Neither of them seems to understand simple immigration law and neither seems to be able to process news of federal court decisions reported in their own newspaper.
We have lost count of the number of news outlets that falsely reported that “DACA recipients” were the targets of Carpenter’s first two versions of HB 120 on instate tuition and that “DACA” was part of the bill language. Triple dog dare: show us the line numbers that contain “DACA”.
The reality, easily verified by actually reading those bills, is that DACA was never mentioned in the language. We think the various reporters swallowed Carpenter’s carnival barker, verbal presentation of the bill without reading the legislation. Either that or as often happens with the agenda-driven AJC, staff and management were in on the hustle.
This writer pointed this “DACA” discrepancy out to House legislators in committee. So did a retired federal immigration agent in a letter to legislators.
I also pointed out, again, that the AJC has reported the 11th circuit appellate court has ruled that illegal aliens with DACA are illegal aliens. How much “lawful presence” do they have? Zero.
Carpenter finally did actually insert “DACA” language into his Orwellian, ‘Hail Mary’ latest version. In addition to the existing instate and out-of-state tuition fees, he invented a new proposed tier of tuition rates: “Opportunity Tuition” – for illegal aliens who would be known as “Opportunity Students.”
It wasn’t “instate tuition” at all. Carpenter should feel cheated. He concocted this goofy Newspeak wording but the AJC ignored his handiwork.
Americans and legal immigrants from most other states would not be allowed to pay the lower “Opportunity Tuition” rates. Only illegal aliens who landed in Georgia before 2013 (or who move in with parents who say they were here in 2013) could get that special deal. At least until the next time these liberals couldn’t bear the “unfairness” of borders and immigration laws. Then it would be back to the Gold Dome to change that 2013 date to 2021 or whatever year they decided represented “justice.”
Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders according to the anti-enforcement Georgia Budget and Policy Institute.
The danger to pro-enforcement Georgians of the AJC’s constant hard sell is that most Georgia legislators know more about Martian trigonometry than they do about immigration.
In large part we blame this on reading and believing the AJC.
I left a voicemail for Denery late Friday afternoon. I don’t expect a return call and I don’t expect the AJC correction I asked his editors to run.

A news headline reports: “Vaccination can end the coronavirus but public has to be willing to change its pandemic ways.” I wish to speak to that. Willingness to participate is based on trust and the rogue Marxist government of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer, hardly instills trust. If Americans are unwilling to participate, then they must be forced to comply.
Biden is tossing out the term “mandate” as it applies to wearing these ineffective masks to hopefully, prevent the spread of the China Virus. But we also see the idea of a ‘mandate” being extended to include these experimental vaccines that may, or may not be useful but could be harmful to the one’s submitting to it. The very term “Mandate” rests on the utilitarian principal that: “the right course of action is that which serves the best interests of the greater number of people” or, as Karl Marx framed it: “From you according to your ability, to you according to your need.” In other words, what can you do for the State?
For the American Marxist party today (Democrats), that implies Collectivism, “Can’t we all just get along?” Unity, or getting along as Democrats term it, means submission to their dogma, without compromise or discussion. The word ‘Islam’ by the way, means submission! Fifty percent of free thinking Americans have not yet condemned themselves to become slaves to the State. We can still ‘opt out’ as they say. The pro abortion crowd likes to proclaim: “My body, my choice!” Does that not also apply to having ones body injected with foreign substances that nearly half of Americans don’t trust or want, or does it only apply to pregnant women coerced into agreeing with infanticide simply to solve their problem of making a poor decision? If this untested experimental drug is so wonderful, why should it be mandated?
Ask yourselves these questions: (1) If you are vaccinated, can you still spread the CV-19? The Quick Answer is: Yes! (2) How long does the experimental vaccine last? Ans:they don’t know! (3) The CDC has confirmed that some re-infections have occurred after vaccination. True or false? Ans: True! (4) Does the experimental vaccine provide an immunity stronger than natural immunity? Ans: They don’t know! (5) Will re-vaccination be required if the experimental vaccine mutates to evade the vaccines intended purposes? (6) Is there the slightest outside chance that the rNA experimental vaccine can alter or affect ones own DNA to create illnesses in the future or even turning folks into creepy transgenders or worse? Just asking! You might think up more questions yourself.
Collected statistics reveal a close 50-50 split between those Americans eagerly wanting to infect themselves with the experimental vaccine and as many who ardently refuse to do so. Consider this important number, one that is rarely discussed publicly: if the deaths of nearly 500,000 (half a million) Americans can be attributed to the China Virus, including a Florida motorcycle rider in a collision and a passel of gang hoodlums in Blue cities for CV-19 related lead poisoning, how does that explain why the 1.3 Million folks who died here last year of Tuberculosis (TB) not trigger a pandemic? I don’t recall a mask wearing mandate being required for that epidemic, do you? No matter, most of ’em were illegal immigrants from south of the border anyway welcomed here by Obama and Joe so they don’t really matter, do they? Well, they matter to me because that’s what’s about to flow over our open southern border under China Joe Biden again, thousands of disease ridden human beings welcomed into our country so they can vote Democrat. And that’s a big reason why Americans don’t trust government with their money, with their medicine or with their lives. But, all was exposed by Donald J. Trump. The Deep State is a vast cesspool of ignorant puppets run by puppet masters above to preserve itself!

House panel advances HB 120 out of committee
A Republican-controlled Gold Dome committee has voted to advance legislation that would give illegal aliens lower tuition rates in Georgia than Americans and legal immigrants from most other states.
The bill, HB 120, was sponsored in the legislature by Dalton Republican Kasey Carpenter and has more Democrat cosigners than Republicans. Pro-enforcement opponents of the legislation began furious calls and emails to their legislators and Republican Speaker of the House Rep. David Ralston soon after the approval.
Advanced out of the twenty-five member House Higher Education Committee Thursday, the illegal alien friendly measure passed by a vote of 16-4, with
several Republican panel members staying away from the hearing. Committee Chairman Chuck Martin (R- Alpharetta) was clearly a proponent of the bill
and openly worked to adjust language to help future “undocumented workers” get a new, lower tuition deal in Georgia’s public universities and the state’s technical college system.
A notable “yes” vote came from Rome
Republican Katie Dempsey who seems to have experienced a liberal evolution since 2011 when she was a co-sponsor of the widely publicized, pro-enforcement ‘Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011’ (HB87).
“Voting with the Democrats to give special treatment to illegal aliens over Americans is not what we sent Republicans to Atlanta for” said one angry Rome GOP voter who wished to remain unnamed for fear of local reprisals.
Before he voted “yes” with the Democrats, Rep. Bert Reeves thanked the sponsor for his “courage”
in proposing the bill to help the effected illegals. Reeves also cited what he claimed were “unfair” attacks and “blatant lies” involved in the already widespread opposition to Carpenter’s illegal alien bill.
Reeves is not listed as a cosigner on HB 120. Powerful business interests who seek more affordable foreign labor are pushing the legislation.
Gold Dome watchers note that Carpenter has repeatedly presented his bill as applying only to illegal aliens who are beneficiaries of former President Barack Obama’s “DACA” program. Despite media reports, none of the previous versions of his bill actually contained any reference to DACA. The current version approved by the House panel does in fact limit the new lower tuition rate to DACA recipients. But it also says “nothing in this Code section shall be construed to require in-state tuition classification for individuals not lawfully present in Georgia.”
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and a federal appellate court have both made it clear that illegal aliens with DACA status are nevertheless illegal aliens and do not have legal status or “lawful presence.”
In March 2019 The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled against a group of DACA recipients who claimed “lawful presence” for admission purposes in Georgia’s university system. As reported by the liberal Atlanta Journal – Constitution newspaper, that court said “as DACA recipients, they simply were given a reprieve from potential removal; that does not mean they are in any way ‘lawfully present under the (INA) act.”
It is not clear if this legal information has made its way to Georgia legislators or if Republican Gov. Brian Kemp would sign a bill into law that insures illegal aliens pay less tuition in Georgia’s post secondary education system than Americans and legal immigrants living in other states.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security estimates are that Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than Arizona.
The bill can be read on the General Assembly website. The House committee vote record can be seen in a post on ImmigrationPoliticsGA.com. Contact information for individual Georgia House Reps can be found on the legislature’s official website. Speaker Ralston’s office phone is 404-656-5020.
Having passed out of the Higher Education Committee HB 120 must be approved in the Rules committee and then be voted on by a majority of members in the full Republican-controlled House chamber before midnight, Monday, March 8, which is known as “Crossover Day.”

The more things change the more they stay the same, not necessarily so, but old words and phrases once used by radical elements in pre-Soviet Russia to define and vilify who they were against, have simply become new words and phrases in pre-Maoist Americas meaning exactly the same thing with the same end in view, collectivization and complete state control. The only difference being, they are talking to new audiences, our past two generations of lost young Americans. We saw it coming, we were warned and we still let it happen: Antifa’s & BLM!
In Russia’s revolution of 1917, the term “Class Struggle,” was coined to represent the fight by the Marxist Proletariat (workers and soldiers), against the Bourgeois (royals, land owners, farmers & industrialists). That term today has been remolded to “Cancel Culture,” a “Woke” attack against Americas middle class; instead of peasants & soldiers, versus producers, we’ve been relegated by our betters through hate and envy, into separate class structures as victims, the easier for Marxists to either glorify and raise or vilify, demean and ultimately destroy, according to the “New Speak” theme of the Day! It changes daily!
Case in point, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, a tough talking, in your face, git’er done blowhard Italian politician, once the darling of the Democrat Party destined for Presidential greatness, his legacy alas, now in tatters because the “Woke” crowd has deemed him a liability and no longer an asset. Cuomo strayed from the strict Marxist path, exposed himself to compromising ridicule and now faces the fate of George Orwell’s poor hapless citizen, Winston Smith. Cuomo will probably not get a bullet in the back of his head, but will suffer a life forever in obscurity, unsung, unloved and destined to become a pitiful example of failing to adhere to strict Marxist dogma. Any Democrat who strays is expendable to Party discipline, except idiots and sexual predators who become President. They will be protected! Cuomo will go down fighting, but he will go down. The Democrat Motto: “Admit nothing, deny everything and blame somebody else” didn’t work! Cuomo tried but failed and to Big Brother, failure is not an option. Womanizing is okay just so long as you don’t get caught at it. Let the Party provide your sexual entertainment, Don’t seek it yourself, it’s not prudent, and as often fatal!
In the time of Rome’s greatest peril, encircled as they were by Barbarians, Visigoths and Huns, the feckless Roman emperor’s produced Circus’s and bloody entertainments to pacify its citizens so they wouldn’t notice their treasury being squandered by frivolity, unproductive enterprises and worst, leaving unpaid soldiers to fume. We see this right now with Pelosi’s $1.9 Trillion spending bill (forget Biden, he’s nothing). This is all Pelosi and Schumer doing the bidding of the corporate New World Order crowd. Not to forget, China is sitting on the horizon patiently bidding its time, ready to become the masters of the New World Order.
Speaking of circus’s, how did Megan and Harry suck the air out of such really pressing news items as he border crisis with Biden’s invited disease laden, unskilled peasant wannabe laborers crashing our borders to infect our American culture while receiving free stimulus money, housing and healthcare to boot? The Party of Pelosi and Schumer fed billions of our treasury dollars into failed Blue States and Blue City coffers to restore their bankrupt union pension funds while other unAmerican distractions, like legitimizing sexual perversions, damaging real women’s rights, and worst, leaving unaddressed the threats our protectors of society, policemen, firemen and soldiers must endure all while still trying to pacify us citizens with circus type entertainments so we don’t see the coming disaster! Megan & Harry be damned! Americans have got to get their heads out of their arse’s and Democrats out of Govt.!

“The reality is that foreign nationals or “non-citizens” can easily obtain a Social Security number. It is a very “typical occurrence.”
A version of this investigative commentary was originally posted on ImmigrationPoliticsGA.com.
In his long testimony to a legislative committee chock full of senior House members, Georgia Secretary of State General Counsel Ryan Germany passed on a remarkable amount of inaccurate and incomplete “facts” last Friday. From where this writer was sitting, it appeared the assignment was to kill the measure at hand, HB 228.
The bill is aimed at voter ID integrity.
The hearing in the Special Committee on Election Integrity admittedly involved “in the weeds” details on immigration law. But it also dealt with Motor Voter registration, Georgia driving credentials, ID Cards given to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals and the security measures involved in the issuing process. In addition to Germany’s, the general lack of knowledge of many of the legislators was quite extraordinary.
Example? In a state where legislators endlessly seek to increase foreign labor, who can obtain a Social Security number seems to be a deep and mysterious unknown.
From a transcript of the hearing on voter security and “proper identification” at the polls:
Committee member and Speaker Pro-Tem Jan Jones to Ryan: “So I guess follow up if you’re not a citizen, you wouldn’t have social security number?”
From the witness podium: Sec of State General Counsel Germany: “Uh, I believe it’s possible to have a social if you’re not a citizen, but it’s,
but it’s not, it’s not, um, a typical occurrence by any means.”
That’s not accurate Mr. Germany.
The fact that Ryan Germany was put in a position to influence the outcome of pending legislation and apparently does not know his statement to the House Speaker Pro Tem is wildly wrong should be alarming to all concerned.
The reality is that foreign nationals or “non-citizens” can easily obtain a Social Security number. It is a very “typical occurrence.”
Virtually every legal immigrant (green card holder) in the U.S. – and we take in about a million every year – is given a Social Security number and they are under no obligation to ever become American citizens. As is mentioned further down, tens of thousands of illegal aliens are issued Social Security numbers.
In a response to another question from Speaker Pro Tem Jones, SoS General Counsel Germany told her “… non-legal residents cannot get driver’s licenses or IDs in Georgia.”
In his testimony, Germany repeated the above claim: “So, um, that means that when, when they’re checking their status at DDS, when you’re checking either citizen or, you know, legal resident, um, because it’s non-legal residents cannot get driver’s licenses or IDs in Georgia.”
That’s not accurate, Mr. Germany.
For brevity here, let’s consider the more than twenty thousand illegal aliens who are beneficiaries of Barack Obama’s ‘Deferred Action on Deportation for Childhood Arrivals’ (DACA recipients) who have Georgia drivers licenses and/or official ID Cards – and Social Security numbers.
This is due to the fact that the REAL ID Act contains a section (MINIMUM DOCUMENT REQUIREMENT AND ISSUANCE STANDARDS… (Sec. 202, (2) (B) ) which says illegal aliens with deferred action on deportation (and other categories of administrative status) have “legal status” for purposes of drivers licenses and ID cards only. That status does not transfer out of that narrow regulation.
For example, these illegal aliens with DACA have Georgia drivers licenses and ID Cards but are not allowed instate tuition rates at USG/TCSG schools. While he is stone silent on the entire issue as governor, in 2018 even then-candidate Brian Kemp recognized that “illegal immigrants” with DACA do not qualify for the Hope scholarship. Why? Because they are, using the words of Ryan Germany “non-legal residents.”
In a March, 2019 opinion the 11th circuit appellate court noted the obvious “As DACA recipients, they simply were given a reprieve from potential removal; that does not mean they are in any way ‘lawfully present under the (INA) act.”
Text of HB 228 as introduced here.
Bonus for General Counsel Ryan Germany and the Georgia legislature:
*Georgia’s Attorney General Chris Carr makes it clear that DACA recipients do not have legal status.
*From the Associated Press: “Some illegal immigrants can get Georgia driver’s licenses.”
It is very possible Mr. Germany lacks this knowledge. The committee considering HB 228 should not have similar gaps of information.
On the topic of REAL ID compliant credentials, Germany informed the committee considering DDS-issued credentials used as voter ID that “…since 2012, I believe (DDS) has only issued Real IDs for driver’s license or state ID.”
Not exactly, Mr. Germany.
As I type, I am looking at my own Georgia drivers license issued in January 2016. It is not REAL ID compliant. It has no gold star. What Germany omitted in his expert education to legislators in the HB228 hearing is the fact that if anyone obtains both an ID card and a DL DDS will only make one document REAL ID Act compliant – which is noted with the gold star in upper right corner.
It should be made clear – again – that the illegal aliens with Georgia-issued drivers licenses and ID Cards are given the same credentials as U.S. citizens with the exception of the words “LIMITED TERM” on top.
Here, we insert an April, 2019 news item from the liberal AJC: Georgia leads nation in motor voter registrations
“Amid heated battles over voting rights, Georgia has emerged as an unlikely national leader in automatic voter registration, according to a study this month by the Brennan Center for Justice. The study estimated that 94% more voters registered in Georgia than if the state hadn’t implemented automatic voter registration in September 2016.”
House Bill 228 is designed to make human and/or systemic error resulting in illegal voting much less possible. The bill closes a loophole in current law that does not prohibit foreign national’s drivers licenses and/or ID Cards from acceptance as “proper identification” at the Georgia’s polls and clearly marks these documents with “BEARER NOT A U.S. CITIZEN – NOT VALID VOTER ID.”
The committee hearing HB 228 seemed to reject the multiple liberal media stories presented documenting foreign nationals being registered to vote through the Motor Voter system. But it was clear they hung on every word from General Counsel Ryan Germany.
That is accurate, Mr. Germany
It is not apparent that one of Germany’s most important statements came in his answer to another question from Speaker Pro Tem Jan Jones when she asked “is it possible though for a non citizen, um, to accidentally be registered to vote, say at the county level, if they go to their county board registration to register that.”
“I wouldn’t say it’s impossible” was the reply.
That is accurate, Mr. Germany.
A parting note on DDS testimony at the same hearing
“A Georgia DL/ID is not proof of lawful status in the U.S. so it is important to note that an expired LIMITED-TERM card does not mean the person is in the country illegally.” – statement on the DDS website as of 2:25 PM March 2, 2021.
We are focused on testimony in committee from “experts” to legislators with apparent wide gaps in knowledge of immigration law and how secure credentials are issued in Georgia. It’s a good place for a quick note on the video testimony of Ms. Shevondah Leslie who is Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) | Director of Governmental Affairs and Communications.
Space here does not allow extensive coverage, but Leslie effectively told committee members multiple times that everyone who is issued a Georgia drivers license and/or ID Card is “lawfully present.”
To repeat information offered above, the federal government – the source of immigration laws that decide status – tell us something quite different. So does a former federal immigration judge. It is long past time that responsible lawmakers pay attention.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) puts it a different way:
“Current law does not grant any legal status for the class of individuals who are current recipients of DACA. Recipients of DACA are currently unlawfully present in the U.S. with their removal deferred” – here.
Again, more than twenty thousand DACA recipients alone have Georgia drivers licenses and/or ID Cards. There are other categories of illegal aliens with state ID credentials.
In response to inquiries from past state legislators, DDS has revealed that the SAVE system does not confirm “lawful presence” for DACA recipients – but rather temporary employment authorization. That phrase notes that Obama gave these illegal aliens a work permit and an SSN. It does not in any way contradict the laws from congress as noted in the 11th circuit appellate court decision.
The problem with SAVE.
In response to questions on the non-citizen drivers licenses a DDS spox once told a news outlet
“DDS has not changed the policy regarding driver’s license and/or identification card issuance to non-citizens. Those non-citizens in Deferred Action Status are eligible for GA licenses and IDs per the Federal Dream Act (assuming that they meet all other GA licensing criteria).
We hope that it does not come as news to readers here that the DREAM Act failed to pass in congress multiple times. There is no “federal DREAM Act.” You can read that one here.
A DDS liaison once assured a state legislator, in writing, “we don’t issue cards to illegal aliens.”
There is much more information available for lawmakers who want to make educated decisions on all matters immigration and “non-citizens”– and that issue is crucial to HB 228 which is focused on clarifying and ease of recognition the ID we give to foreigners in Georgia.
For Georgians curious as to why there is massive and powerful opposition to adding clarifying wording on credentials issued foreign nationals, it should be noted that a very important goal of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce is more, not fewer foreign workers in “the number one state for business.”
Any change in marking these documents is counter to the already announced goal from the business lobby at the leftist Georgia Budget and Policy Institute.– drivers licenses for all “immigrants” legal or not. Election integrity comes behind that ambition for far too many obedient people in power in Georgia.
Like in California.

By all appearances it seems the Marxists Democrats are near achieving their goal of destroying American capitalism to replace success with the endearing misery of top down government collectivism. They have been working toward this goal for over three decades and are gaining momentum because we ignored what they taught in our schools and they didn’t. Now our streets are awash with a generation of youths who hates America and actively work for its destruction firm in the belief that Socialism is superior to Capitalism and should be the true and lasting government for all America. Little do they know the woe that is coming if they succeed!
As pro American citizens we can no longer react after the fact to the loss of our constitutional freedoms, but work to get ahead of the Left’s continuing assault on the standards that made America great. It appears to be an overwhelming task but it needs to be faced. Everybody needs to get involved. Currently we cannot rely on the Republican Party. We must look elsewhere but, a third party is not the answer. Conservatives must retake the Republican party.
One wonders why there is still a fence around Wash. DC and 6000 National Guard soldiers standing around looking menacing? Democrats want to demonstrate by the image of fear, that there is a vast right-wing conspiracy of domestic terrorists, white right-wing weirdo’s like Oath Keepers and numerous others, composed mainly of retired or ex-soldiers and policemen who took their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic and still believe that oath counts for something! As individual citizens we must ignore those false accusations and continue to resist this unconstitutional effort by the Left to impose their total dominance over our great America. We cannot give in to these political criminals!
President Trump showed us how to get it done and they couldn’t handle him so his destruction, by hook or crook, was employed. Anybody who doesn’t believe election fraud actually occur in those five important electoral states, is an ignorant fellow traveler and denier. In Georgia, that includes twenty-six Republicans State Senators who refused to sign the petition to investigate the obvious fraud that occurred in the recent US Senatorial election here. They are: Butch Miller (R-Gainesville), John Albers (R-Roswell), Lee Anderson (R-Grovetown), Ellis Black (R-Valdosta), Dean Burk (R-Bainbridge), Bill Cowsert (R-Athens), Mike Dugan (R-Carrollton), Bill Heath (R-Bremen), Billy Hickman (R-Statesboro), Chuck Hufstetler (R-Rome), John Kennedy (R-Macon), Kay Kirkpatrick (R-Marietta), P.K. Martin IV (R-Lawrenceville), Jeff Mullis (R-Chickamauga), Chuck Payne (R-Dalton), Randy Robertson (R-Cataula), Jesse Stone (R-Waynesboro), Brian Strickland (R-McDonough), Carden Summers (R-Cordele), Blake Tillery (R-Vidalia), Larry Walker III (R-Perry), Ben Watson (R-Savannah), John Wilkinson (R-Toccoa), Frank Ginn (R-Danielsville), Lindsey Tippens (R-Marietta), and Renee Unterman (R-Buford).
These Senators, not concerned if your vote was counted or not or the machines were rigged, gives the appearance that they have an allegiance to the New World Order (China’s) as did Gov Kemp, Lt. Gov. Duncan &. SoS Raffensperger! These politicians can only remain in power if Georgia voters allow it. They must all be removed from office. Conservatism can’t wait until the next election cycle. We forget too easily and they will continue to control the levers of election law. We were snookered by the promise of machine voting. Georgia politicians have been controlling our vote even before Gov Kemp spent $170 billion buying them. That just made it easier. Often they are used to remove uncooperative Senators or Representatives by simply running their own candidate who can be controlled. Its time we acknowledge the fact that in Georgia our elections are questionable and our politicians don’t want a system that is.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (21Feb21)

This once great land, now emotionally draped in black crepe as it turns socialist, was cold, morose and heartbroken until the queen of mean who lurks in the House side of the US Congress failed once again in her cooked up scheme to destroy former President Donald John Trump, and happiness swept over the land!
Then, the President (no, no, not the imposter) but Donald Trump came out of his dwelling at Mar-a-Largo to the tumultuous cheers of hundreds of true supporters, believers in Making America Great Again, assembled along the roads ways of Palm Beach, Fl in their hundreds to cheer and dance. All marveled as the sun came out and bright warmth spread its continence on all assembled and for a time, hope and happiness prevailed.
Outside of the Mar-a-Largo scene, President’s Day was essentially cancelled due to a lack of interest. Not even in the DC Swamp could National Guard soldiers surrounding the White House, be assembled in close order ranks to raise their caps with three cheers of “hip, hip hurray,” But, the story’s not over.
In Utah, Mitt Romney’s GOP support is fractured. The media try’s to tell us his base is solid yet, while the States official GOP establishment made no move or even offered a pretense of rebuke against Romney’s vote to impeach President cum private citizen Trump, a base driven effort is indeed underway to do just that. The organizers have not been identified yet, they will, but this action show others that perhaps, just maybe, America is waking up. Utah’s State GOP president, a fellow named Brown, came out with the usual deep state excuse for not taking action for a first rate act of treason by saying: elections are where change takes place. Maybe, once, but Conservatism can’t wait four more years to change the sheets. It has to be done now!
Romney, a petty, ignorant, self-serving creature, has shown us he is still emotionally affected by Trumps refusal to gift him with a cabinet position in the administration. He is motivated by personal rancor, jealousy and, dare I say it, unChristian hatred toward President Trump. And,
Sen Richard Burr (NC) faces a similar censure action. It’s now said he will retire. If he intended to or just made the decision, it makes no matter because however he gets out, he’s gone. Democrats will try to fill his seat so North Carolina conservatives had better get cracking and find a MAGA candidate. The same applies to Louisiana. Take at Look at Greg Lirette.
President’s Day brought us another awakening. While a singularly awful weather front originated in the Plaines states, accompanied by record breaking sub zero cold and snow from Texas east, the Green New Deal renewable energy machines failed completely. While our landscape is cluttered with avian blenders (wind mills), these devices froze solid and couldn’t even create enough energy to unfreeze themselves let alone provide electricity to millions of hopeless customers just trying to stay alive. Green energy on a mass scale is unaffordable because it can’t pay for itself. Government subsidies is the only reason these giant windmill eyesore are continuing to be erected across our nation, apart form the fact we’re buying them from China. They don’t accomplish their goal as this one winter storm demonstrated. We’re being conned by false science and Leftist propaganda
And finally…Isn’t it great that President’s Day excludes lying, murdering despot governors like Chris Cuomo? 15,000 dead seniors, by his direction, not to mention the uncounted number of abortions of new American citizens is the Democrat plan to depopulate America. Like Comrade Stalin said, “The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic.”

Seven Republicans voted to convict Trump this past Saturday. Only one faces reelection in the next four years. In Trump’s Republican Party, most are unwilling to cross him if they entertain future political ambitions, Mitch McConnell excepted. Nancy Pelosi went into a meltdown against Republican Senators who didn’t vote to impeach Trump. She might need some serious professional help!
To my regret, Nikki Haley, once my odds on presidential favorite for the first female president, jumped ship this week after telling Politico that Trump’s role in the Dec. 6 attack disqualified him from running for office again. “He’s fallen so far,” she said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.” Buyers regret? Perhaps, anyway, they got to her! That removes her from the presidential gene pool.
Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., a disappointment indeed, also voted to convict Trump saying: Trump’s “lies” about widespread voter fraud endangered “the life of the vice president” and are “bringing us dangerously close to a bloody constitutional crisis.” Well, we are in a constitutional crisis and this attempt to salvage VP Pence won’t work. Sasse, who appears to be more enlightened than the average bear, and might entertain thoughts about running for president in the future, despite his intellect, seem to lack that congregative thinking gene so important to good leadership. Sen Sasse won’t face a primary until 2026. Let us hope they all face the fate of failed Greek hero’s by falling on their swords.
McConnell finely showed his true colors criticizing Trump after the acquittal vote saying: “He hasn’t got away with it yet!” McConnell can be applauded for hanging in there with Trump for his Judicial appointments and moving Trumps agenda forward as he did but I suspect he hopes for a return of government in the swamp. I expect he’ll retire soon anyway. He’s got his fingers in a Chinese shipping business so, he’ll be okay. He might even find a retirement job on a cable news channel. Trump’s most voracious opponents other than Democrats and out of work Republicans, may soon be seen on CNN, MSNBC, etc, posing as expert political analysis’s promoting a 2024 “never-Trump” movement against a return of the bad Orange Man.
Republicans had its own never Trump clown show called the Lincoln Project PAC, a motley collection, as it turns out, of prominent cash laden pedophiles, scalawags, and political incompetents who raised scads of money all for themselves! A co-founder, Mr Reed Galen acknowledged Trumpism was winning. “The authoritarian side of the Republican Party is the dominant side,” he said. “They have the momentum. For now, they have the money.” Even GOP strategist Sarah Longwell who heads the Defending Democracy anti-Trump lot, said: “what the last two months have shown is if Donald Trump was a cancer on the country and the party, he’s metastasized. I thought we could push past him,” she said. “But now I don’t think that.”
The GOP faces unimagined political hazards. Some politicians will continue to support Trump knowing what he’s accomplished for the country, while the once Conservative Chamber of Commerce business community types threaten to cease donating to Trumps Congressional allies”…so voters don’t forget what the former president and his allies did,” which was what, Making America Great Again? A revenue stream is critical if the new GOP has any chance of reclaiming the House and Senate in 2022 but a principal is at play here and cannot be abandoned like the GOP has always done in thE past. The base’s donations should go there.
Here is the BS line of all anti-Trump BS lines i’ve ever read: “We will remind voters that Republicans were willing to neglect their oaths of office all out of loyalty to one man, and that one man was more important than their constituents, more important than the Constitution of the United States, more important than the democracy that we have in this great nation.” That was from DNC Chair Jaime Harrison with the Left’s “new speak!” Not one word about what Trump did that was unAmerican. Not one! Trump is not going away. He’s in their heads to stay!
Immediately after his acquittal, President Trump issued a statement promising to re-emerge soon! “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun,” Trump said. “In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people.”
So, we have an interesting time ahead of us repairing the Republican brand while interfering with the imposter China Joe Biden and his Masters plans to Communize America.
Today is President’s Day Due to a lack of interest, it’s been cancelled until we get one!

From the beginning it was decided Americas government would be a representative one of, by, and for the people, and actions taken by that government was to be done by the consent of the people. So, how did the Democrat party come to the conclusion that it is they alone who should be the sole and exclusive representatives of the American people? Because they know better?
But, there was a snag. To keep that representative government on the rails, a Federal Constitution was developed after years of careful thought and deliberation prescribing the parameters within which limited representative government must operate. So, just when did it go off the rails? Why are “we the people” left suffering under the dictates of the proponents of a different political philosophy, one completely inimical to the consent of the people?
One thing our forefathers agreed on at least since Jefferson solved the problem of the Barbary Pirates, was the need to spend some funds for a strong defensive Navy to prevent other countries from encroaching on ours and interfering with the isolationism that then met the consent of the people. History and world events moved at faster speeds necessitating the need to look ahead to know what potential threats were forming across the pond. US Foreign policy adjusted accordingly but the Constitution hardly changed. It didn’t need to. Our Civil war settled one issue, America was no longer politically divided, slavery was officially ended although real healing took over another hundred years to flatten out the curve so to speak. But we still have our Constitution nearly unchanged and we must protect it.
Then came the era of increased foreign militarism with World War I, followed quickly by World War II and under the cover of the fog of war, the incursion of hostile foreign thoughts of Marx and Engles whose philosophies have ever since been eroding out our democratic process’s. The once accepted idea of thoughtful deliberation through agreement and compromise of our supposed elected politicians, began to fade away because the problems facing America were now being generated by those same politicians so they could, through the ruse and deception of fear, frighten enough Americans so they could keep their jobs to protect us. They really hate us!
Time has created a political class of career politicians who want to become the Nobles of that class, our betters as it were, whose experience expects they should be retained by the vote as our masters. But to stay there requires gobs of money and money buys influence and influence buys corruption, hence, the Industrial-military complex Eisenhower warned us of. Now it’s the technical, media-information complex that censures our thoughts, prescribe our needs and punishes our transgressions against the collective thought that has invaded our schools. We must have been simpletons to have allowed that to happen. Americans don’t need to be organized by political nutters, we just need to be left alone to organize ourselves.
Today, the Democrat Party, by whatever name you want to call it, Marxist, Communist, National Socialist, Social Democrats or Fascists, etc., have concluded that our Constitutional Representative government of, by and for the people, is a mishmash of argument and controversy that allows too much independence, too much freedom and too much self-reliance; that it doesn’t work and should therefor, be left in their capable hands. A new class of “do-gooders,” the “Expert” class appears to be overtaking them and soon, George Orwell’s 1984 prediction will be upon us, a la Chinese style! Why should that be? Because they know better and it belongs to them? Besides, sheep should not be allowed to control anything.

The matter of Trump’s second impeachment trial isn’t only about him, it’s about the future of America and how the hatred by the shameless lying Democrats, who tremble in fear of a Trump resurrection, are bringing it about. Trump must be destroyed root and branch before his legacy of successes taint all Americans into believing that the Capitalism they are trying to destroy is the true American way forward. It’s really about them coming after us just like Trump warned.
This is a show trial, the epitome of a Soviet style kangaroo court. Pelosi’s House Impeachment effort, without any witness, without any deliberation, without due process, or evidence entered into the record, is a pipe dream, merely articles of impeachment sent to the Senate for its advise and consent but, after the intended target had left office? What’s wrong with this picture? The US Constitution, which the Democrats eschew, is quite clear on the conduct of an Impeachment trial. Paramount is the singular fact that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court “shall” sit as the Judge to ensure fairness. The Constitution does not provide for one of the lynch mob, fulfilling that role. Where is the Chief Justice? He saw it for exactly what it was, a show trial concoction of demented BS and didn’t want his fingerprints on it at all. That should have been the end of it but hatred runs deep!
Wallowing in their noxious anti-Trump stew, Pelosi and Schumer, titular heads of the Democrats marxist Party, seem content with proceeding with a kabuki theater production of MacBeth to change history by lies, innuendos, false impressions, impassioned hate filled speeches by infected Democrat sycophants. Technical manipulation of videos deemed as evidence to support their vain effort to prove cause and effect, more often proves their own complicity in the riotous matter at hand, the organized assault on the Capitol that started even before President Trump could finish his speech. That was a Red Herring! Its all designed to deceive us.
The deceptions in the Democrat led trial by fire of Americas most successful President since Abraham Lincoln, cannot be avoided.Their concocted theory that President Trump himself was solely responsible in a treasonous effort to overthrow a fairly elected Joe Biden, rendering Trump a liar and seditionist who “tried to tear down our democracy,” falls on deaf ears save all who have become the living-dead Zombies of the Democrats Party.
In the senate trial, we suffered an incoherent two hour ramble about the constitutional legitimacy of their screwball Impeachment effort, in the end persuading only six Republicans to agree. Forty-four did not. Sadly, President Trumps defense team offered a tepid and ineffective case to end the trial which actually appeared as arguments for the prosecution. Where does President Trump find these type of people to help him, in the DC Swamp? Absolutely no evidence whatsoever was presented to support anybody for impeachment except Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer. Their alleged piles of evidence, speeches, videos and tweets by President Trump inciting his followers to attend the Capitol attack “peacefully,” are DOA.
Democrats claim the shameless GOP wants to replace the rule of law with the rule of mobs, while it’s the deceptive Democrats who ignore the year of rioting in Blue cities and States across America. Can we let Democrats walk away from their role in fomenting attacks on American streets? Let’s be clear, the Democrat Party has become the cult of Marxism and letting them retain control of the House and Senate in 2022 will only lead to more attacks on our constitutional representative form of government. We see clearly where the real danger to American democracy lies.

The witch trial is over, Trump survived and his enemies are storing away the faggots of fire tinder for his public burning. The dunking stool, once favored by more civilized societies as a method of ridding themselves of undesirables are, in a few states where GOP turncoats voted with the Devil, being resurrected. Sad, very sad!
This show trial business was a thoughtless and dividing exercise in hateful revenge. Nothing more! The Republican party can no longer be fully trusted and right now, many of the GOP swamp dwellers who voted to maintain the status quo by voting against their President, are sweating out probable repercussions from an outraged Trump base in their own states. The Trump base is not going away as the RiNO’s hoped! The anti-Trump GOPer’s have lost their grip on their reality, reliability and trustfulness and many will be looking for the exit door before getting cashiered by the new crowd forming up across America determined to turn them out. It’s Trumps GOP now if he wants it. Watch the sniveling snowflake republican politicians start to reverse course. Case in point, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who called Trump responsible for the Capitol attack, quickly reversed himself, made the trip to Trump’s Florida estate to be first in line to kiss the ring and see if there was any hard feelings.
But, already, within hours, the Louisiana GOP unanimously voted to censure their senior Senator, Bill Cassidy for his vote to convict President Trump expressing their profound disappointment in his dastardly actions and demanding his resignation. These people have forgotten that representative government, and votes taken, is to be by the consent of the people, not the grievance of a politician. To lose that consent is to have a hard row to hoe.
Who’s left? The ultimate traitor to Conservatives, Mitt Romney has, we are told “a strong base in Utah,” but that’s questionable. He might have a harder time then he realizes. Lisa Murkowski from Alaska has been courting trouble ever since she’s been id’ed as a RiNO, Sen. Richard Burr of NC, (any relation to Aaron?), Benn Sasse of Neb and Pat Toomey of Pa. who is on his way out anyway, all face potential reprisals at home. Stay tuned!
How these people cling to the Constitution as an excuse for their perfidy is laughable. That goes for all politicians. Sen Cassidy, going all in, said: “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.” If Sen. Cassidy had listened to the evidence instead of nurturing his own personal hatred of Trump, he might have enjoyed an understanding of exactly what the Constitution is and how it works.
In Wyoming there are angry demands that Rep. Liz Chaney resign her office at once and, right here in Georgia, a recall effort has started to remove Governor Kemp and Secretary of State Raffensperger for their utter contempt of Georgia’s Voting laws, and failing to conduct proper post election inquiries of alleged voter fraud resulting in a loss of the people’s trust. If we have friends like them, who needs enemies?
For Trump base, his acquittal was a vindication. I don’t usually trust polls but, according to Gallup, Trump’s approval stands at 82%, Monmouth University poll reports 72% of Republicans absolutely believe Joe Biden is president because of voter fraud while remarkably, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s fellow House Republicans overwhelmingly voted to defend her despite being relieved from two House committee assignments for her pro-Trump heresy. Keep an eye on the next few days. Times are a changing and we’re witness to it. More later! Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (13Feb21)
