Things just keep getting curiouser and curiouser. When will we find President Barack Obama wandering around the White House lawn in his jamies? The White House just announced that 3,000 U.S. military personnel are going to be deployed to deal with the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This Obama now claims is the #1 threat to the USA. Is this insane? Or is this insane?
Only last week the entire nation heard Obama planned to deploy far fewer military personnel to deal with ISIS in the Middle East. So what is it? The truth seems to be that the #1 threat to America, to Israel, and to the free world is Barack Obama.
The sooner this man is removed from office the better. I know, I know, he has an insurance policy against that happening – Vice President Joe Biden. But even Biden may be better than what we currently have, and if POTUS is replaced soon enough we don’t have to deal with the silliness of Joe Biden in 2016 – he will have shot himself in the foot multiple times by then. In fact he will have shot himself in the foot so many times that even the Main Stream Press will have to report it. (I get the feeling that they hide a lot of this today in order to protect Obama.)
It seems that this sheer stupidity is fairly widespread among the Democrats. We all know about Nancy Pelosi and her ‘we must pass the bill to find out what is in it’ statement regarding Obamacare. We all know about Debbie Wasserman Schulz calling the Israeli Ambassador a liar, despite videos that showed the opposite. But have you heard that Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill would have helped the cause because it would have allowed foreign trained doctors to leave the country to help with the crisis without jeopardizing their immigration status.
Here’s a thought: first we stop allowing people with contagious diseases, or countries that have known widespread contagious diseases, into the country, and also screen all potential immigrants for diseases. Why not tighter immigration laws to begin with? I understand that in the 1920s a potential immigrant could come to the USA and be turned away for a heart defect – now people with contagious diseases are allowed to enter. How things have changed.
You read that a right. It was the Mexican flag that was flown last Saturday on the occasion of a Mexican holiday parade (Eloy Fiesas Patrias), in which the flag was flown on a float it was in support of Democrat Party nominee for Governor of Arizona, Fred DuVal and Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is a sitting member of Congress. Banners of both Democrat politicians were also on the float.
Governor Jan Brewer is term limited, hence cannot run for re-election. However the Republican Party is running Dough Ducey – I don’t know a lot about him but I did find a photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio (American’s toughest sheriff). on stage with him (night of the primary?). He has been endorsed by Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, John McCain and Jeff Flake along with former Senator John Kyl. Governor Brewer of Arizona and Scott Walker also have endorsed him.
While the float as created and run by Democrat volunteers, what does this tell you about Democrats?
“The only way to win a war is to be as nasty as the enemy.” Mallory (Gregory Peck), THE GUNS OF NAVARONE, 1961
For the benefit of President Obama and a great deal of the Democrat Party:
ISLAMIC: Of or pertaining to the religious faith and personal actions of the seventh century self-avowed prophet, Muhammad.
STATE: 1. Condition; 2. A nation or one of the governmental elements of a nation; 3. To declare.
NATION: A people living within established political boundaries or united under a central government.
SHARIA: “The Core and kernel of Islam” (Joseph Schacht) governing the actions of all who abide by Muhammad’s beliefs and actions and considered the fundamental duty of all Muslims, unifying the Muslim nation under the banner of Muhammad and the Quran.
From these four basic definitions, most rational people can agree that the group known as ISIS, or ISIL, or more recently (defined by the group themselves) IS – the Islamic State – represents a religious belief (Muhammadanism), a state (Caliphate-seeking Muslims), and a nation united under a central government (Sharia). Only the fool sayeth there is no religion in the Islamic State. Of course, our own government remains populated by fools. Fools that, historically, have not known the definition of a two-letter word, realize that the death of U.S. diplomats does matter, and that many people throughout the world inseparably fuse religion and politics.
Nor do members of our government – particularly the Leftist, Democrat Party – seem to realize that next year, 2015, marks the 100th anniversary of the death of 1,500,000 Armenian Christians at the hands of post-Ottoman “radical” Islamists, a harbinger to the world of rampant Muhammadanism (for effect, Muhammad ordered more assassinations than all of the 266 Roman Catholic popes combined). One and a half million deaths does not constitute “workplace violence” or “manmade contingencies”, it constitutes war – conflict between states, groups, and other organizations. The same party that refuses to admit that we are at war against (radical) Islam, are quick to accept that for forty-six years the United States proudly – and, largely, patriotically – engaged within a Cold War, another war where we had little to declare ourselves.
Therefore, permit me to explain a little bit about reality to our national leadership. First, the Islamic State is whatever they view themselves as and that entails an Islamic State – not, for example, a Roman Catholic municipality. Second, they therefore believe in religion, specifically the faith created and forcibly advanced by Muhammad ibn Abdallah, which permits zero tolerance of non-believers (or else Muhammad would not have murdered those that made fun of him). Finally, IS – the Islamic State now ruling most of Iraq and Syria – bears an active army consisting of arms formerly owned by the United States and most recently given to the failing government of Iraq. These tanks, aircraft, missiles, rifles, and uniforms are not meant to defend orphanages and hospitals from attack by worshippers of the Reverend Moon (or else they would not have expanded outside of Syria). These implements of war are being ruthlessly employed to wage war against “infidels” – any individual that stands in the way of the progress of the Islamic State.
Now that we realize what the true definition of IS, is, permit me to instruct you in how to deal with the abomination: you burn it out and send all adherents back into the Stone Age. You hunt down its members all over the world, no matter where they reside, and you pound the living shit out of them until they regret ever hearing of the word “Muhammad”. You keep after these people until the “decent” Muslims of the world reel back in horror and profess that their faith should more resemble modern Christianity than any proverbial cult that cannot accept competition. You teach the entire planet that whoever invokes the name of God without care will learn firsthand the prospects of Genghis Khan-esque “punishment of God”. And when a century passes from the last time that a single Christian, or Jew, or Hindu, or Buddhist, or even atheist fears to tread in Mecca, then you can begin to suspect that the war that radical Islam began 1,400 years ago may finally be over…

The headlines say it all it seems and here are a few I found on Obama’s 9/10 address to the nation about ISIS (incidentally not a word on Iran, the real threat to the Western world). Below in alphabetical order are headlines from news media, Left and Right, and a figure on the left who article was published in the right wing media (ever noticed how it almost doesn’t exist the other way), and a few comments.
Is Obama ISIS’s worst nightmare? (subtitled Can Obama destroy ISIS?) by Fred Kaplan for The Chicago Tribune.
We wish. This is what was really meant: Is ISIS Obama’s worst nightmare? The golfer-in-chief seems to act like it is 2009 and so does the author. The article concludes with a quote from Slate that “Obama is doing as close to the right thing as the mess of the Middle East allows” – but then did we expect the questions posed to be answered, or to for this paper to ever disagree with Obama?
So let me get this straight – this Administration is arming (via the CIA) and intends to further arm the rebels (who side with ISIS although technically they are not the same thing), i.e. the Administration intends to fight ISIS by arming ISIS?!?. Furthermore, Obama pulled American troops out of Iraq, but now it is going to “expand the overall campaign” and that will require putting American troops back in Iraq.
Obama’s speech on Islamic State gets mixed reviews in Divided Congress by Michael A. Memli, Lisa Mascao, in the Los Angeles Times. (Note: this article focuses on Congress and does not seem to take a position on the issue, but then they probably just wanted something to publish and being on the West Coast, yada, yada, yada . . ..)
Naturally one expects the Left to avoid criticizing Obama, hence it is surprising to see the article in The Washington Post by Jennifer Rubin seems to do just that. The Chicago Tribune tries to avoid the whole topic, in the title it is more focused on Obama’s reputation than the issue at hand, but concludes with a quote (see I didn’t say that – they did), followed by an exoneration of Obama. The Los Angeles Times also avoids any direct comment on the speech Wednesday night by focusing on the reaction of Congress.
Bill Maher, who has pretty solid leftist credentials, goes right for the truth about Islam and indirectly says that Obama is naïve. This article serves to mirror the right wing article about CAIR asking Obama to say ISIS isn’t Islam – although in fact ISIS practices a more Koranically correct form of Islam than most.
It is Mark Lander, who writes for The New York Times, who deserves a medal however because he has, in one short article, made it seem as if Obama actually does believe that he is responsible for defeating ISIS (or ISIL as Obama incorrectly likes to call it), while at the same time talking out of both sides of his mouth.
The weaving and dodging done by left wing media outlets also shows that they are mostly opposed to Obama’s ideas, but are just not ready to admit it yet.
On the Right
Only an article posted on Michelle’s Mirror (aka MOTUS – Mirror of the United States) refers to the fact that in June of this year ISIS gained control of nuclear material from the University of Mosul. They also have obtained ‘remnants of the former Iraqi, chemical weapons program.’ (You know the chemical weapons that didn’t exist when Bush was President.)
This article list Obama’s ‘strategy,’ which is:
1) air strikes, like in Somalia and Yemen
2) find some Arab allies
3) try to get the Sunnis “on message”
4) rebuild the Iraq army (we did that once already)
Good luck on doing any of the above, and it will take a miracle to do all four. In other words it is not surprising that his plans have no chance of winning, and are doomed to fail.
The right wing reports and make it quite clear that Obama’s ‘strategy’ (a strategy he didn’t even have two weeks ago), is ‘doomed to fail.’ They also show that Kerry is still anti-war after all these years, and that Britain and Germany are not willing to support America under Obama – wise move that.
Today we remember the events of 9/11/2001 when nearly 3,000 people, mostly (but not all) American, lost their lives because Muslim terrorists flew into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and into a field in Pennsylvania rather than their Washington, DC target. While nearly everyone is familiar with the story of the brave New York firefighters who went into the Trade Center (many lost their lives too), few are familiar with the fact that there is an International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), a labor union representing professional firefighters in North America.
This union has approximately 300,000 members in 3, 100 locals and affiliates in the United States and Canada. Late on 9/11/2001 IAFF prohibited Canadian firefighter from entering the United States. This ruling did not affect volunteer firemen or those who worked part-time. There were a few professional Canadian firefighters who did not get the message in time – they later faced disciplinary action for going. Granted there might be some complications e.g. paying the firefighters, housing them, and insuring them for example. However, after five days the FBI, IAFF, and others asked them to leave. The full story, in some detail, can be found here.
The worse disaster in American history and our dearest and closest neighbor was largely forbidden from helping us. As I read this story for the first time numerous questions arose as to why. I still don’t have the answer/s – but it seems so wrong. There may, or may not, have been more survivors if the Canadian firefighters had been able to help. We will never know.
While recognizing the need to keep track of who is where, and paying, housing, and insuring the firefighters it seems to me that these issues should have been covered in the contracts and membership forms of IAFF. The plans of this union should have naturally considered the fact that we are neighbors and that in the event of a major disaster (however that is defined) this should have been covered.
I don’t know if that definition should cover hundreds or thousands of potential casualties. But I do know for certain that on 9/11/2001 up to 50,000 deaths were expected. I know too that there are hundreds, and probably thousands, of communities of all sizes at or very near the border between the two countries. I also know that there are factories, railroads, and other facilities in these places that might be in immediate need of more professional firefighters than are available on one side or the other of the international border.
Any competent leader (or lawyer), should have been prepared and included plans for such a crisis. But then this is a union – and unions are rarely if ever, interested in facts or reality, they seem to exist solely to gain as many benefits for their organization as possible, especially for their leaders, and to extort (or punish) management of the organization and/or the general public. This story does not look too good for the FBI either, another organization that seems more concerned with enforcing the rules, than maximizing their mission.
On 9/11 we mourn the loss of these victims, but if they are not to have died in vain, we must also learn ALL the lessons of that day and one of them is that emergency services are there to protect our populations. The IAFF didn’t do what it could have done, and we must acknowledge that and make changes. This is a change we can believe in.
“You Jews are always complaining of your own suffering, but you get fat off the poor, cheat the simple, exploit the virgin, pollute where you’ve exploited – America is one Big Jew! We are soldiers fighting a war. We are not criminals and we are not vandals but men of ideals.”
Such are the words spoken by a Muslim-Palestinian terrorist in The Death of Klinghoffer, an American opera based on the 1985 hijacking of the passenger liner, Achille Lauro, by the Palestine Liberation Front, and their murder of a wheelchair-bound, stroke victim – the Jewish-American passenger Leon Klinghoffer, on holiday with his wife and daughters. However, the words came from the mind of librettist Alice Goodman, an anti-Semitic, Jewish apostate-turned-Anglican priest, who found an “artistic” channel for her own animus, hatreds and biases.
Commissioned by five American and European opera companies and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the composers have turned a heartbreaking event into musical entertainment. The story is of a malevolent crime of Islamic jihad (a crusade to kill for conquest), presented with consideration for the villains and indifference to the innocent victim. There is something deeply perverse – nay, depraved – in producing this for showbiz, as I see our once-great civilization sinking into the depths of a fascistic Islamic evil.
It is said that there can only be peace when the Muslims stop revering death the way Jews revere life. Islam’s militaristic, expansionist, religious, oppressive ideology revolves around subjugation, mutilation, and death – all that is antithetical to our Western civilization. As a nation we debate about length of prison terms, the death penalty, humaneness for animals, yet there are some will create, perform, and view a callous, political murder as “theater,” as well as provide a venue for slowly Islamizing the American psyche.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (aka, little Debbie), the Democrat candidate for the 23rd Congressional district (it includes Miami Beach) in Florida has done it again, and again. What has she done you may ask? Well, once again she has proved how utterly dishonest and spectacularly ignorant she is, and once again she has provided cover for the disgraceful Obama Administration.
If one goes to her website and looks under ‘Media Center’ there two sections I would like to point out, one is titled ‘Latest News’ and the other ‘Press Releases.' Now I for one cannot even begin to understand why she has the “Latest News’ section at all – I mean isn’t the internet, radio, and TV full of ‘the latest news’ and surely they are more recent than August 8, 2014 – the most recent article listed there.
Actually it isn’t even news – it is an editorial from the Sun Sentinel. So it is quite clear that she (and/or her staff) don’t know the difference between actual news and an editorial, even though the word ‘editorial' is right there. And is that editorial piece a doozy. Straight from the Sun Sentinel it discusses the case of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi (from Weston, Florida) who claims to have brought firearms illegally (although owned legally in the USA) into Mexico accidentally, which has resulted in his being incarcerated in Mexico for several the last months. I don’t know if he was careless and/or really did get lost and accidentally went to Mexico (and cannot even imagine why he would do it deliberately). However, the article, while admitting that the case has become an embarrassment for the Obama Administration, proceeds to justify the Mexican position.
The article then heads directly into the issue of the illegal flow of firearms from America to Mexico, but claims that Congress has done little to stop the deadly smuggling and blames this on the power of the National Rifle Association (NRA). It conveniently ignores the fact that it was the Obama Administration behind the flow of American firearms into Mexico, not Congress, not the NRA. It refers to the Fast &Furious sting as a ‘botched law enforcement operation’ – well you could say that, but it would be more accurate to call it a botched attempt by the Obama Administration to attempt to thwart the 2nd Amendment and to arm Mexican drug cartels.
Wasserman Schultz is lauded in the article for endorsing diplomatic pressure. So somehow it implies that as the issue involves a foreign government, diplomatic pressure would be put on the Mexican government by the State Department, now headed by the only American gigolo to become Secretary of State. Is this really a good idea? Is it likely to happen? Somehow I think not. Still fresh in this writer’s mind is the imprisonment of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian whose release from the bonds of Sudanese Sharia law was obtained by the Italian government so that she could leave that vile country with her naturalized American citizen husband and her two American children. The White House was silent on this story. Might we expect more silence on the subject of Sgt. Tahmooressi?
By posting this story on her website Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to endorse it and to say, like the Sun Sentinel, that his case ‘should not be used be used to justify baseless accusations that the Obama administration does not care about Tahmooressi.’ But what conclusion are we to draw? America, once the beacon of hope in this world, was silent on the subject of Meriam Ibrahim, an innocent woman with every right to live in the USA. The suspicion that the Obama Administration will not care about Sgt. Tahmooressi is hard to ignore in the light of her story, and it is hardly baseless. Thus we see that Debbie Wasserman Schultz once again seeks to criticize her opponents and defend the indefensible Obama Administration.
The Press Releases are equally amazing – the one for September is a boilerplate condemnation of the killing of Steven Sotloff and her ‘profound’ expressions of horror, etc. But then take this one from July 2014 titled: Wasserman Schultz Statement on Recent Sanctions Against Venezuela, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement on the Obama Administrations recent sanctions against Venezuela. "I strongly commend the Obama Administration for taking action against the Venezuelan officials who have perpetrated egregious human rights violations against the citizens of Venezuela.”
Yet in May, the Huffington Post carried a story from Reuters (neither exactly right wing) that made it clear that Venezuelan security had taken about 250 people into custody for protesting the Maduro government. In the Reuters article (see here) a state department official said that the US does not want to be viewed as interfering in internal affairs of the country. If this is true, then what action was DWS referring to?

I have my personal view of Joel and Victoria Osteen, but I wanted to know more after Victoria's recent gaff from the pulpit.
She said what she meant and and meant what she said -- but now she is trying to walk it back and it's not working. Her recent statement taken by itself may not bother some people, but when you look at the broader message from Victoria Osteen and Joel Osteen, co-pastors of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, Christians see a real problem. She said:
“I just want to encourage every one of us to realize when we obey God we’re not doing it for God — I mean that’s one way to look at it,” she said from the pulpit. “We’re doing it for yourself, because God takes pleasure when were happy. That’s the thing that gives him the greatest joy this morning … just do good for your own self. Do good because God wants you to be happy.”
She added, “When you come to church when you worship him, you’re not doing it for God, really. You’re doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy.” (The Blaze)
Faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is missing from the Osteen ministry. Also missing is any mention of sin, conviction, repentance, salvation. We attend church to worship God, to be convicted of our sin, to study God's Word, to learn how to be saved by the gift of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Church is the place we get fed, equipped and prepared to go out into the world and share the good news of Jesus Christ with the lost.
Yes, God wants us to be happy, he wants us to have the things we need, he blesses us so that we have the means to help others. What gives God the greatest joy is not doing good for our own self as Victoria Osteen said -- what gives God the greatest joy is seeing people accept Jesus Christ, knowing that they are no longer lost in sin but will have eternal life with Him in Heaven.
“It’s the age old sin of idolatry — that it’s not about God, it’s about us,” [Steve] Camp told Christian News Network last week. “True worship for the humanist is about how we feel at the end of the day and what gives us meaning, as opposed to what gives God glory.” (Christian News)
How qualified are the Osteens to be preaching the Word of God?
Joel Osteen attended Oral Roberts University for one Semester where he studied radio and television communications, production and marketing. He did not graduate and did not attend any other institution of higher learning, secular or religious, that I could find.
Victoria attended but dropped out of the University of Houston where she studied psychology. No apparent Bible, theology, Greek/Hebrew, eschatology, etc. training at all.
Joel's father was a pastor and Joel took over his church when the father died. Joel had previously worked behind the scenes in the telecommunications area at his father's church.
As I read somewhere, I never knew that ministers could be 'grandfathered' in, I thought they were called by God. You will not find any mention of either Osteen ever being 'called by God'.
It is obvious why being called by God is a requirement for a preacher/pastor of a congretation and why seminary or a clear understanding of the Word of God is a must:
Should you eschew a formal course of training, and rely instead on your gift of gab, you may end up being outed as a theological neophyte on global TV, like Joel Osteen.
Bestselling author Joel Osteen is the preaching pastor of the biggest church in America. There are regularly 30,000 attendees who pitch up IRL to hear his sermons. This is quite a responsibility. Especially considering Hebrews 13:17 warns that pastors will give an account for each soul in their flock.
And I’m not even referring to the zillions who plug into the televised programming, nor the touring success of sold-out tours stadiums that hold 60,000 fans (at $10 a ticket, I’m sure his staff keep an accurate tally).
But when he was interviewed on the Larry King Live show, the result of being ill-prepared for ministry was painfully obvious. I feel for him as Larry grills him on this sensitive topic. ... (Clint Archer.com)
I have not posted the Larry King interview, you can read part of it at the above link, but Joel Osteen's answer to most questions is, "I don't know", "I don't Know", "I don't know".
Ok, so Pastor Osteen doesn’t know who goes to heaven, he doesn’t know why Muslims/Hindus/Jews are wrong, he doesn’t know what the prosperity gospel is, he doesn’t know why God permits suffering, or why God doesn’t heal everyone. These are pretty important topics for the pastor of America’s biggest church.
The Osteens are phenomenally successful because they are the exaggerated fulfillment of the self-help movement and the cult of celebrity rolled into one massive mega-church media empire. [snip]
The problem with Prosperity Theology is not that it promises too much, but that it aims for so little. What God promises us in Christ is far above anything that can be measured in earthly wealth — and believers are not promised earthly wealth nor the gift of health.
But to talk of the promises of God to believers is actually to jump outside the Osteen audience. The Osteen message does not differentiate between believers and unbelievers — certainly not in terms of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In their sermons, writings, and media appearances, the Osteens insist that God is well-disposed to all people and wills that all flourish, but there is virtually no mention of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. No reference to sin as the fundamental issue. No explanation of atonement and resurrection as God’s saving acts; no clarity of any sort on the need for faith in Christ and repentance of sin.
Instead, they focus on happiness and God’s “immeasurable favor” to be poured out on all people, if they will only correct their thinking. [snip]
Mere happiness cannot bear the weight of the Gospel. The message of the real Gospel is found in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” That is a message that can be preached with a straight face, a courageous spirit, and an urgent heart in Munich, in Miami, or in Mosul.
If our message cannot be preached with credibility in Mosul, it should not be preached in Houston. That is the Osteen Predicament. (Albert Mohler.com, emphasis mine)
We can only find our joy in God, not ourselves, just as we can only find salvation through trust in Jesus Christ.
Like all of us, the Osteens will stand before God and be held accountable, one way or the other. I always cringe when I see a missed opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The Osteen ministries reach more than 100 countries, with an estimated 7 million viewers each week. In spite of my personal problems with the Osteen message, I pray that those viewers/listeners will hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and accept Him.
Once again Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) showed her true colors, and it was not a pretty picture. She also provided evidence of her lack of leadership. Last Friday in the Starbucks at Weston (Florida) Town Center, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) and a woman with her ordered drinks, and the other woman wasn’t happy with hers. The server who was apparently new didn’t handle it to her satisfaction, although he did offer to remake the drink. Their unhappiness led to both women leaving with what was termed by the on-duty staff “an attitude.” One result is that the five people working there at the time, when they learned of DWS’ identity, vowed that they would not vote for her. According to one customer who witnessed the event unfold, DWS acted like a “b****” and “looked like a fool in there.”
Any adult with even a modicum of common sense might have easily diffused the situation. This was Starbucks after all. Their mission is to “inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” Any adult capable of adult behavior could have stepped in, perhaps saying something to the woman or to the server. After all, Starbucks has an excellent reputation for customer service, and DWS could have suggested that perhaps the drink be made over, or a free coupon be offered (to compensate for their perceived failure) – one, or both, of these responses is pretty standard procedure in nearly every eatery in the country. This was an excellent opportunity to present herself as a mature adult and a peace maker. Instead, it seems she chose to behave with the indignation of a schoolgirl.
If DWS cannot handle a simple mistake or misunderstanding in a local coffee shop, how exactly can she be expected to handle the serious issues facing this nation? Clearly she cannot. Although anyone who is paying much attention realizes how completely incompetent she is and that she has not been good for the people of South Florida, the reality is even worse. She is not only the incumbent Representative for the 23rd Congressional District, she is also the current head of the DNC (Democratic National Committee). Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a post turtle* and needs to be ‘pink-slipped’ in November.
*If you see a turtle on a post you know it didn’t get there by itself, doesn’t know what to do while it is there, and doesn’t know how to get down. Turtles don’t belong on posts – it is that simple.
