I will guarantee you the Jonathan Turley is not on the Democrat party’s favorite list this morning…of course, he hasn’t been for some time…

There was no call for lawless action by Trump. Instead, there was a call for a protest at the Capitol. Moreover, violence was not imminent, as the vast majority of the tens of thousands of protesters were not violent before the march, and most did not riot inside the Capitol. Like many violent protests in the last four years, criminal conduct was carried out by a smaller group of instigators. Capitol Police knew of the march but declined an offer from the National Guard since they did not view violence as likely.

So Congress is now seeking an impeachment for remarks covered by the First Amendment. It would create precedent for the impeachment of any president blamed for violent acts of others after using reckless language. What is worse are those few cases that would support this type of action. The most obvious is the 1918 prosecution of socialist Eugene Debs, who spoke against the draft in World War One and led figures like Woodrow Wilson to declare him a “traitor to his country.” Debs was arrested and charged with sedition, a new favorite term for Democrats to denounce Trump and Republicans who doubted the victory of Joe Biden.

Doubted, as in the past tense? I got news for you Jon boy…

But isn’t it interesting that even Jonathan Turley forgets about Nancy Pelosi whom I mentioned just yesterday in relation to her own incitement to violence against Donald Trump??

Turley in his piece suggests that using impeachment in this fashion would damage the Constitution and in this he’s quite correct but then again the Democrats don’t give a damn about the Constitution. Remember how many of them bypassed the voting procedures in each state and bypassed the constitution in the process.

Just how bad is it when we see people like Jonathan Turley trying to come off like a moderate?

I’m telling you folks, it’s coming.

With a nod to Glen Reynolds:

KRUISER’S MORNING BRIEF: Democrats Are OK With Billionaires If They Censor You.

“This has nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with an all-out assault on conservative speech.

What’s been most disturbing is seeing half the country cheer this on. The Left is rejoicing over the idea of a one-party information flow. Don’t doubt for a moment that all of the elected Democrats in Washington aren’t gleeful about this as well. “

Yes indeed, that’s precisely why big tech is doing this. As I pointed out earlier today, up until now they were still looking for a way to keep the antitrust suits away.

And Facebook’s suspension of Ron Paul speaks directly to that point at Volume 11.guys, this has nothing to do with safety or the Constitution or anything else other than political retribution against anyone who dares to speak up against the left.

Meanwhile the GOP establishment is making weak kneed noises about how “this isn’t who we are”, and so on and so on.

Well of course it isn’t who the establishment is, and that’s precisely why you’ve lost so much credit amongst the GOP voter. If you want to turn the government away from the Democrats in two years time, you’d better figure out why Donald Trump got elected, and act accordingly.

I’d like to say “unbelievable” but this is Cuomo we’re talking about, so actually it’s quite believable.

The day after more than 4,100 people died from COVID-19 across the U.S., news broke that health care providers in New York were forced to throw out precious vaccine doses instead of putting them in people’s arms.

New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, is the main man to blame. On December 28, he signed an executive order rolling out strict penalties—up to $1 million in fines, plus loss of medical license—for medical providers who allow people to skip the state-issued vaccination line, even when those doses are about to expire.

The state’s current vaccination plan allows frontline public health workers who have direct contact with patients to be vaccinated, as well as residents in nursing homes and other congregate care facilities. It does not currently allow for vaccination of most other elderly people, the group at the highest risk of death from COVID-19.

Forget about why the man is in office ….I want to know why Cuomo isn’t in jail.

Addendum, Eric

So now Cuomo is saying that the cost of staying closed is too high. Seems obvious that he figures Joe Biden needs the economic boost. Always apply Cui Bono with these people.

Eric Florack on January 11th, 2021

It’s gotten to the point now where there’s only one conclusion to draw about Facebook …it isn’t worth my time.

And the thing is, I’m not alone. Literally millions of others are doing the same thing, to the point where alternative services are springing up faster than the tech Giants can shut them down. I myself am going to be leaving Facebook to the degree that can be arranged in short order. I urge you to do the same.

The thing is I’ve already told you what’s driving that… They’re trying desperately at both those platforms to keep the left wingers who are going to be running our government very shortly, happy. I told you a while ago during the Zuckerberg show hearing that there was a longer game being played.

I suggest to you that game is now coming all the way around, now. We now see big tech, social media, essentially becoming a part of the Democrat party, in fact being the propaganda wing of the Democrat party.

They’re doing so because they don’t want to be broken up as was the threat back when they had Zuckerberg in his high chair before congress.

I explained why all this is happening less than a week ago.

Eliminate opposing views and the Democrats will turn a blind eye to their monopolistic practices and their anti-free speech actions. All that chatter about breaking up Facebook and Twitter over Free speech goes out the window when the Democrats are in power because the Democrats know they have a friend in big tech, someone who will limit the damage to Democrats.

Look at the number of conservative voices that these two have kicked off of their platform, how many platforms they’ve shut down who were in competition with Facebook and Twitter, who were not in lockstep with the left. And then look at who they allow to stay around. For example they feel that Louis Farrakhan is operating within the boundaries of their supposed “community standards”. Apparently hatred of Jews is well within the boundaries of what Facebook considers acceptable. But don’t you dare question Joe Biden’s fitness for officeand above all don’t question the integrity of the most recent election.

It’s all very well for the Iranian mullahs to be part of their community standards, but don’t you dare suggest that antifa was the direct cause behind the violence that we saw in Washington DC the other day.

Let me put a bit of an edge on that. Is anyone aware, any one of you, of any left-wing individuals who have been deplatformed because of these supposed “community standards”?

If you think they’re going to be satisfied with deplatforming conservatives, think again. Look, for example, at the comments of Mozilla’s CEO:

“But as reprehensible as the actions of Donald Trump are, the rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than any one personality,” she claims. “Donald Trump is certainly not the first politician to exploit the architecture of the internet in this way, and he won’t be the last. We need solutions that don’t start after untold damage has been done.”

I asked, a short while ago in conversation if there is a connection between The usual suspects trying to remove southern heritage from our daily lives, statuary, flags and so on, and what we’re going to see levied against conservatives in the future? I suggest that process is already begun.

It’s as Matt Margolis says… Baker is calling for an all-out assault against Trump and his supporters in the name of “transparency”. I suggest it’s going further than that. Anything to the right of Fidel Castro is a likely target for these animals. The chants of “four legs good, two legs bad” are getting louder, and the character from George Orwell’s Animal Farm of Boxer is particularly potent at the moment.

The bottom slug on Matt’s page suggests that we can follow Matt on Twitter, but frankly I suggest that it probably isn’t going to be available for very long. As he himself says it’s either Oceania in 1984 or Germany in 1933.

The problem of course is that Orwell wrote Animal Farm and 1984 as warnings, not as a how-to guide.

The ironic part is these morons are throwing the word fascism around when they discuss Donald Trump.and these are the people that swear up and down they want healing and national unity. Then again, every tin pot dictator in history has claimed the same thing.

While I have the editor open here’s a few suggestions for alternatives to Zuckerland.

The most popular living President and the most powerful politician has the Swamp scared. Big Tech is banishing conservatives to Searchlight, the Speaker of the House has attempted a military coup and is babbling about impeachment from Rush Limbaugh:

I swear. The entire Washington establishment is poised. They are recoiling in fear. They are cowering in fear in the corners. They are scared to death of Donald Trump. They are scared to death of you. You have been defeated. You have been vanquished. Donald Trump has been vanquished. But he hasn’t left. He hasn’t left town. He hasn’t apologized.

He hasn’t said he won’t do it again, whatever it is, and they’re gonna be like this — do you understand? — for the next 12 days. In case you missed it, Nancy Pelosi, according to top-of-the-hour propaganda on the radio from an EIB affiliate… Well, I’m assuming it’s radio. Yeah, ’cause our listeners would be listening to the EIB Network radio facilitate and local news or national news network.

Pelosi has called the military and put ’em on standby in case Trump launches the nuke codes. Who are we gonna nuke? The little pot-bellied dictator, Kim Jong-un? What are they terrified of? They’re terrified that Trump is gonna unleash classified documents. You know, he’s got a bevy of ’em, folks. He’s got classified documents about the hoax, the four-year coup.

The four-year coup, the four-year effort to get the election results of 2016 overturned. There are all kinds of people who broke the law, all kinds of people who are quaking in their boots. They’re worried silly that Trump is gonna unleash some of these classified documents. Do you know what else they’re worried about? Do you know what else they’re scared of?

They are scared to death — they are terrified — that Trump is gonna pardon people who are dangerous to the establishment. Call it the swamp if you want. Because let me tell you, nothing’s changed. The people in the Washington establishment, why did they want to stop Trump in the first place? Because they didn’t want what they have been up to (which is no good) for years to ever come out.

They didn’t want Trump to discover it and release it. They remain petrified for the next 12 days that Trump is going to release — somehow, some way — what he knows about these people. In other words, they’re worried to death that he’s got a card or two to play here yet, including the pardon power. They’ve got a lot of stuff to keep covered up. I don’t know if Trump’s gonna write a book.

The Delaware Dimwit has called Antifa an idea.  Well the United States in a real idea, and it is over seven-five million living Americans strong.

Eric Florack on January 9th, 2021

Up until March of last year, my wife worked at an office downtown. Since the covid-19 restrictions have hit she’s been working from home and unable to go into the office.

Unfortunately, that means that the plants that have been sitting on her desk for some time have been sorely neglected. Sadly, the majority of them have died.

It got me to thinking about what we have lost in this last year or so. It turns out to be quite a list, far more than would be obvious.

Among other things, I’m an amateur radio operator, (call sign K2ENF). Ham operators in my area like to get together for breakfast or lunch a couple of times a week. There’s usually quite a turnout for these things. They haven’t been able to do that for close on a year, now. How many social functions have disappeared in the last year, just in your own life. Now multiply that by the population of an entire nation and you begin to understand the effects of these government lockdowns have had.

Obviously that lack of business is creating a problem for the local restaurants. Family gatherings are out too. I haven’t been able to visit with my mom for almost a year now. Doctor visits, dentist visits, haircuts, date nights for my wife and I, live music events, theater, all of that is nigh on impossible these days. All the small businesses around the neighborhood that depend on such activity for their income slowly slip under the water never to be seen again. Social interaction is out too other than through the narrow channels of Facebook Twitter and whatever social media you happen to be on so long as you don’t step outside of their politics. Trump supporters are being rounded up and escorted out the door as if supporting a republican was a criminal act. They’re open to other views, and they’d like to hear them, but they’ll escort you out the door if you dare to other them and are forever offended that other views even exist. Free speech dies under such circumstances.

Up springs Parler, a free speech centered platform, whose servers were melting down under the load of people moving off of Facebook on Free speech grounds.

Well, presto chango..

Google yesterday decided that the application for parler wasn’t going to be allowed on their systems unless parlor institutes Draconian limits on Free speech which are akin to what Facebook and Twitter have been dealing with. Then,Facebook and Twitter deplatform the president, and a lot of the people around him.

The cause for that is increasingly clear. They’re trying to make the Democrats Happy …Democrats who will be running government very shortly.

Eliminate opposing views and the Democrats will turn a blind eye to their monopolistic practices and their anti-free speech actions. All that chatter about breaking up Facebook and Twitter over Free speech goes out the window when the Democrats are in power because the Democrats know they have a friend in big tech, someone who will limit the damage to Democrats.

The aforementioned restaurant closings, closing of bars, mixing of family gatherings? That too, limits opposition.

Lest you think I’m kidding, consider the bars restaurants taverns and inns at the time of the American revolution. It was these places that provided the forum, the Free speech platform if you will of the time. It was in those places that the freedom in our society was given room to grow. That’s all gone.

Family gatherings too were platforms to discuss and become informed about the issues of the day. How very convenient for the Democrats that covid-19 has given government the opportunity to shut all those chances for free speech down.

You think it’s just coincidence that the government has placed us, essentially, under house arrest? Clearly somebody doesn’t want us getting together and comparing notes.

I’m telling you, folks, it’s all part of the same deal.

We are left, I’m afraid, with the rather frightening prospect of either compliance or enforced silence. Governmentally enforced silence.

Like the dead plant all these things that we’ve lost, we have lost as a result of governmental enforcement. My fear is like the house plant, we won’t be able to bring it back.

And somewhere, George Orwell is shaking his head.

The last American duly elected President, Donald J. Trump, has but twelve days left in office. The feckless RINO’s have surrendered both Congress and the Presidency The Supreme Court remains mute and impotent. Yet Patriots are rallying while the liberals are in utter panic, from via Last Refuge:

Dear Friends,

First of all, this was not tens of thousands there was a minimum of 1.5 million and that is from my own observation and those of others I talked to and have been to previous

DC monster events I will try to send some videos I took and you will be amazed.

It was totally beautiful and the people were beautiful and totally peaceful, They were upset that this election was clearly stolen with massive provable fraud. Trump did an excellent job of laying that out.

Now, were there some people in that crowd that were really upset, yes but I just can’t imagine that any of them would be stupid enough to break into the building and be violent and totally destroy the positive impact of what was a truly peaceful protest.

For sure none of them would have gone in with a gun. As soon as I heard that there were gunshots I knew what was happening,

It was a clear form of a false flag operation.Deep state operators pretending to be Trump supporters making trouble so the anti-Trump media could portray the whole event as a violent radical group.

I am listening to the coverage now and this is sickening, there were no bombs or guns from any of our crowd. People have to understand that this battle is taking place in the media, the left totally control the media and they know exactly how to create this, If you have never seen

‘Wag the Dog” What we are hearing and seeing now on the radio is “Wag the Dog” level fake news.

We are sitting here in the car getting angrier and angrier listening to how they are spinning this.

During the rally I had tears in my eyes most of the time thinking about what my father went through as a WW 2 prisoner of war. He barely survived that. So many Americans have sacrificed their lives to create the freest and most prosperous nation in the history of this planet.

Half way through the event I called my ex son in law thanking him for what he went through as a Navy Seal and left him a very emotional message thanking him for what he did. This was a love fest with grandmas and Grandpas and lots of children, It was totally a love fest of patriotic people expressing their deep love for their country and their President but frustrated over the election fraud. That is it.

Please tell everyone and share this email with everyone. We saw people that were clearly Antifa and BLM that were there to cause trouble. There is no way our people started this and there is no way they could get into that building if they didn’t want them to get in. Clearly, they had this violence planned. They let the instigators in and those instigators may have been able to convince some Trump supporters to go in, that is possible.

It is my instinct, and those of us in our group, that this was a planned operation to destroy the positive impact of this event. These people in the deep state are evil and smart and they know exactly what they are doing. This does not surprise me at all.

I am so glad I went and can tell you and every American and the world that this was an epic event and totally peaceful and marred only by paid instigators with the help of the capital police because they could never have gotten in with out inside help. No Way

Please spread the truth please



Video from the rally:

By the way, have I told you recently that I love grandmother?

The Delaware Demented Dimwit may claim eighty million votes.  Whereas President Trump a mere seventy-four million.  However Donny’s supporters are real and alive Good luck Joey trying to rally your purported eighty million voters who largely are dead, or concocted.

But, Matt Margolis does;

In 2018, Nancy Pelosi told reporters she didn’t know why there weren’t “uprisings” over the issue of family separations at the southern border.

“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “It’s a horrible thing, and I don’t see any prospect for legislation here.”

That reminder is even more potent when you consider that the policy that she was talking about was an Obama policy, which Trump put a stop to.

Ummmm… Once again what they’re trying to pass off his truth turns out to be anything but:

The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate polls of the 2020 election, finds President Trump’s approval is actually rising after Wednesday‘s protests.

As Democrats move to impeachment and some establishment Republicans call for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, the poll finds 48% approve of the President’s job performance.

A source close to the polling firm tells Newsmax that the rolling survey saw Trump’s approval soar to 51% on Thursday night.

Eric Florack on January 9th, 2021

Between everything happening so rapidly of late and life events in my own existence, I’ve been neglecting my email, wherein I found this note this morning. I’ve removed the names.

So I find it comical how sooo many people on FB are commenting about what they THINK happened or the narrative they are seeing on the news regarding the March at the Capital. Well SINCE I AM HERE IN PERSON reporting and saw everything, I will tell you NOTHING aligns with what the media was and is saying – I will also tell you that close to 1.5 million people PEACEABLY Protested the entire time – Antifa showed up on the 5th and 6th Dressed in Capital Police Uniforms and Trump Apparel and started attacking Trump supporters. After President Trump spoke at Elipse Park scores of people marched to the Capitol in protest of what is thought to be wide-spread fraud and THAT IS THEIR RIGHT!! 6 people broke into the capital and all 6 were identified as Antifa members and arrested.
So please get your story straight before you villainies alot of people.

Eric Florack on January 8th, 2021

You keep telling us that Biden won. Well, how do you know that?

You see there’s the problem you face…. An election is not a court of law where you’re innocent until proven guilty.

You have got to know :

* who is voting

* how many times they’ve voted

* whether or not they are eligible to be voting.

And we simply don’t know the answer to those questions. I don’t know the answer to those questions and you certainly don’t either….none of those questions are answered definitively. On that basis alone you can’t tell us that Biden won.

What usually gets thrown in our faces is we don’t have proof that there is fraud.

I’ll throw it right back at you and say we have no proof there isn’t,

That information is something that should be readily available to every American. It is not.

As it stands right now because of that lack, about half the country believes that the election was stolen.

The fact is, there’s nothing proving that that idea is incorrect. Nothing whatsoever.

There’s only one way to answer this problem, and the Democrats won’t go for it because it doesn’t advantage them the way mail in voting, the Chinese printed absentee ballots, the areas of the country that have a much larger number of votes then they have registered voters, does.

And that’s leaving aside the software running the voting machines which is owned by the Chinese.

All of this has to be remedied and right now.

And that doesn’t even address the issue of the states that went outside the Constitution to alter voting methods.

The Constitution specifies that the state legislatures alone have the authority to do that. Not the state governors, not the secretary of state. The legislatures. The states that went outside the Constitution should have their votes nullified completely.

If we stick by the wording of the constitution, nullifying those votes and acting as if they never happened is the only correct course.

With all those things in play, there’s only one logical conclusion:

Joe Biden didn’t win the election. It’s that simple.

Eric Florack on January 8th, 2021

Found elsewhere…

Does anyone else find it strange that as the momentum begin to grow with objecting Members increasing that antifa was suddenly let into the Capitol and allowed access to the House Chamber?? Then the Members were locked down for 4 hours and when they came back the momentum is broken and everything went according to script?

I begin this with the words of Democrat party icon John F Kennedy whom it seems very few Democrats pay attention to anymore.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.

-President John f Kennedy

Like it or not, the nomination and election of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States was in fact the start of a peaceful revolution which the establishment of both Democrat and Republican parties have been trying to quell and overturn ever since… In large part by attempting to clamp down on voices supporting him.

We see that crackdown on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, we see it in the national news media, we even see it more and more within the halls of Government itself.

The establishment of both parties has been quite successful in making it impossible for the revolution to continue by peaceful means. Kennedy’s observation comes to pass, thusly.

Tucker Carlson hits the nail directly on the head when he says last night..

…if people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent, if they conclude that voting is a charade, the system is rigged and it’s run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests, then God knows what could happen. Actually we do know what could happen, it’s happening right now. It’s happened in countless other countries over countless centuries and the cycle is the same because human nature never changes.

“Listen to us,” screams the population. “Shut up and do what you’re told,” reply their leaders. In the face of dissent, the first instinct of illegitimate leadership is to crack down on the population. But crackdowns never make it better. Instead they always make the country more volatile and more dangerous. The people in charge rarely understand that, they don’t want to, they don’t care to learn or listen, because all of this conversation is a referendum on them and their leadership.

So they clamp down harder. “Obey, I tell you, obey!” This is the Romanov program. It ends badly every single time. But that doesn’t mean they won’t try it again, of course they will because it’s their nature, it’s how we got here in the first place.

Millions of American sincerely believe the last election was fake. You can dismiss them as crazy, you can call them conspiracy theorists, you can kick them off Twitter, but that won’t change their minds. Rather than trying to change their minds to convince them and reassure them that the system is real, that democracy worked as you would do if you cared about the country or the people who live here, our new leaders will try to silence them.

The Democrats claim that they want healing and national unity. Yesterday was a wake-up call to the Democrats that they’e not going to have that until such time as certain parties see jail time for forging and falsifying an election.

As Tucker says, the more the government tries to crack down, particularly when the Democrats try to crack down on descent, the worst the situation is going to get. If the establishment of both parties truly want national unity, then they must allow investigations on this election to go forward and follow the path that such investigation leads us down. The thing is, that probably won’t happen. The criminals are the ones running the show. In that direction lies Chicago politics for example.

Simply demanding, that we silence ourselves and accept the corruption (under the force of law and government) is both unacceptable and inexcusable..

And they have been trying to silence them since election night, 2016, and have been ramping that effort up continually since. Time after time we’ve brought up discrepancies in both of those elections, evidence that those in charge of such matters refused to even look at.

Carlson, again:

“When thousands of your countrymen storm the Capitol building, you don’t have to like it. We don’t. You can be horrified by the violence, and we are.

But if you don’t bother to pause and learn a single thing from your citizens storming your Capitol building, then you’re a fool, you lack wisdom and self-awareness, and you have no place running a country. We got to this sad, chaotic day for a reason.”

Well, we know damned well what that reason is, and it isn’t Donald Trump.

What’s going on here, very simply, is that Donald Trump is not a part of the aristocracy and therefore must be crushed.

It’s the establishment of both parties desperately trying to regain control… control that the presidency of Donald Trump… Someone who is not part of the aristocracy, threatened. In short, the establishment of both parties is arguing for the divine right of kings again.

The Democrats in particular but also the establishment Republicans claim that they want healing and national unity, which of course is a claim that every despot in history has made.

Well, yesterday was a wake-up call that they’re not going to have that until such time as certain parties see jail time for forging and falsifying an election.

Look, I don’t like this any better than you do, but Mao described the situation pretty well when he said that if 8% of the population thinks that the elections are being tampered with and the results are false then there will be a revolution.

Can anyone doubt that that’s precisely what we saw yesterday? I tell you true, that what we saw yesterday was a result of cutting off all peaceful means of revolution.

The establishment of both parties have seemingly dedicated themselves over the last four years to the proposition that they are better than the rest of us, better than the majority that elected Donald Trump once at least, and probably twice.

As Tucker says, the more the government tries to crack down, particularly when the Democrats try to crack down on dissent, the worse the situation is going to get.

If the establishment of the Democrat and Republican parties truly want national unity, then they must allow… In fact must insist that investigations on this election to go forward and follow the path that such investigation leads us down.

I will say this again… Simply demanding that we accept the corruption of the election process is both unacceptable and inexcusable.

And if you add political retribution which is sure to follow given the Democrats newfound political power the anger that we saw yesterday will seem like a walk in the park. I have grave doubts that the Democrats are going to be able to resist the temptation to pillory anyone who dared to speak out against them over the last four years.

Mark me on this… it’s going to happen…indeed it’s happening already. Allow me to illustrate:

If the Air Force veteran, a woman, who was shot during those altercations yesterday was black the news headlines would be DC police shoot unarmed black woman. CNN MSNBC etc would be dripping with it 24×7 for the next week. We’d see a parade of Democrats denouncing the DC police. As it is, no such luck. Why? Because as I said it’s begun already…. she was a Trump supporter and therefore in their mindlessness, deserved what she got.

I’ll leave you with this graphic which illustrates my point here brilliantly…

Eric Florack on January 7th, 2021

To say the very least I’m not overly happy with Mike Pence.

There’s more then a small chance that this election was corrupted by people seeking to overthrow the current president… which is something that they’ve been trying to do since before he even took the oath of office.

Yet Mr Pence has decided to simply go through the motions in effect accepting these mistruths, this corruption… For, he says, the good of the country.

Is accepting corruption “for the good of the empire” a good or a bad thing?

Mike Pence is not an idiot, whatever else might be said about him. He knows full well that the election was corrupted and yet he’s willing to fall on his sword and accept that corruption. I’m sorry but I don’t find that acceptance a particularly noble act but rather an act of cowardice

On that Mr Pence is not alone by any stretch, I point to him as an example, to ask a question..

If men, widely considered to be honorable men, are willing to accept falsehoods as truth, supposedly to keep the country together, if accepting falsehoods is the only way to generate national unity, what hope is there for the nation?
