Real Time with Bill Maher: Democratic National Convention Day 3

[*Note: This posting, which would have been released on July 27, 2016, had been delayed to personal issues with which I had been contending for some time – personal issues involving my health and me taking care of my mother.

HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher: Convention Edition on July 27, 2016. This convention episode features former Congressman Anthony Weiner, comic D.L. Hughley, and National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke on with Maher regarding the on-goings at the Democratic National Convention.

Real Time with Bill Maher Host Bill Maher’s Interview with Limousine Liberal Democrat (and Hollywood Actress) America Ferrera

HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher interviewed ubiquitous limousine liberal Democrat, Hillary Clinton supporter, and Hollywood actress America Ferrera on his Friday, July 22, 2016 show (Episode 398) and discussed why she’s behind Clinton all the way, which led to a panel discussion that became superficially heated. She comes off as very insulting, very condescending, and very obtuse during the interview, although she initially had me on the immigration issue considering she correctly addressed the lies that Republicans have been spilling on so-called “illegal immigrants.”* [*Note: I prefer to call them “independent migrants” thanks to my old left-libertarian mentor Sheldon Richman who understands the issue better than *ANY* Republican known on record.]

The panel line-up included MTV News and New York Times progressive author and blogger Ana Marie Cox, progressive “Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World” author and Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer,  and Trump supporter and former U.S. Representative Jack Kingston (R-GA) (who was incidentally receiving more flak from Ferrera, Maher, and Cox during the last segment of the show).

Here’s the YouTube of the interview portion of the show, broadcasted on July 22, 2016:

The DNC Convention Editions of Real Time will be interesting enough, but you’ll have the Bill Maher audience clapping for that convention as highly expected and anticipated.

HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher and his panel on the July 15, 2016 show, in which Maher, actor and interviewed guest Viggo Mortensen, conservative Republican S.E. Cupp, former Governor Eliot Spitzer (D-NY), and New Yorker staff writer Jelani Cobb discuss Donald Trump‘s veep pick 50th Indiana Republican Governor Mike Pence.

On Reason.TV’s YouTube channel, Fox News‘ senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano calls Pence a “conservative statist.”

Reason.TV Host Nick Gillespie: Mike Pence, as Donald Trump’s VP, is Mike Pence the type of person America needs at this time to reign in “constitutional chaos,” as you’ve called it?

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Probably not, but he will help Donald Trump with, uh, credibility amongst, uh, mainstream conservative Republicans, and, if they’re elected, they’ll help Donald Trump with his dealings with the, uh, with the elected Congress. This is…

Gillespie: So…[about to interrupt]

Napolitano: This is another example of “let’s-not-preserve-protect-and-defend-the-Constitution.” Let’s find ways around it to achieve our ends.

Gillespie: So…Mike Pence is a conservative statist as I understood it.

Napolitano: [Interrupting Nick] Yes, absolutely, as almost all conservatives are.

There you have it, folks! Mike Pence is described by both Judge Napolitano and Reason‘s Nick Gillespie as a “conservative statist.”

Donald Trump’s Running Mate Is A Social Conservative and Religious Conservative Christian Whack Job Indiana Governor Mike Pence

Governor_Pence_Official_Headshot_high_Res

 

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, who is by far the most unpopular presidential candidate since David Duke according to the Washington Post, picked 50th Indiana Governor, social conservative, and conservative Christian Republican Mike Pence to be his “running mate” this past Friday, July 15, 2016.

Such an announcement surprised Michelle Jesse, Associate Editor of former U.S. Congressman Allen West‘s website.This Just In - Trump Makes Surprise Announcement - Clip - AllenBWest.com - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016

Of course, this is the same Mike Pence who is described by the Washington Post as the following:
The Washington Post - By picking Mike Pence, Trump sends conservative evangelicals a mixed message - Clip - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016[More on the religious freedom law later in the piece.]

And yet there are some troubling facts surrounding Governor Pence’s record in office.

  • Pence supported a  “religious liberty bill” while in office, saying that Christian-owned restaurants have a right to discriminate against gays because their religious beliefs prohibit them from serving gays and lesbians because of their “lifestyle,” as it’s somehow their “choice” to be gay and not because it’s who they are. Yet he signed an amendment to that bill, which lead to conservative National Review Online writer and blogger David French pointing out the following here:
  • National Review Online - Don’t Ever Forget That Mike Pence Threw Religious Liberty Under the Bus - Clip II - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016
  •  The Atlantic Monthly‘s Wendy Kaminar‘s piece, entitled “The Tea Party’s Religious Inspiration,” states in part on Pence:
  • The Atlantic Monthly - The Tea Party's Religious Inspiration - Clip - (02-25-2011) 07-18-2016 The Atlantic Monthly - The Tea Party's Religious Inspiration Part 2 - Clip - (02-25-2011) 07-18-2016He opposed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which, if enacted, would have banned discrimination against people based on sexual orientation. While it is a libertarian principle to stand up for restaurant business owners and other business owners’ rights to discriminate against individuals based on their sexual orientation *WITHOUT* the State being involved, it is wrong for the State to decide whom the employer can and cannot hire and whether or not individuals want to work for such a bigot.That said, that does *NOT* mean that the business *IS IN THE RIGHT* to discriminate for such reasons to begin with anyway.As Time indicated in its article:
    Time - Here’s What Mike Pence Said on LGBT Issues Over the Years - Clip - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016
  • He is pro-life and has been seeking to defund Planned Parenthood since 2007 (which I do support defunding while supporting the organization to *ONLY* receiving private donations), yet he sought this as a string attached to keep the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (a.k.a. ObamaCare). [Thanks to Politico.]Politico - How Mike Pence Embraced ObamaCare - Clip - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016Furthermore, this is what Politico says thus far: Politico - How Mike Pence Embraced ObamaCare Part II - Clip - (07-15-2016) 07-18-2016

Pence has long pushed for his “Pence Agenda,” which in part shines on his anti-gay agenda, including his opposition to same-sex marriages and civil unions and his call for gays and lesbians to be subjected to “gay conversion therapy.” Here’s proof of that. [H/T goes to the Colorado Independent for providing this evidence in its article on the website page.]Mike Pence on Gay Marriage and Civil Unions, Etc. - Clip - 07-18-2016There’s more to Pence’s record, but I think everyone gets the point anyway.

The question that now comes before us is this: do *WE* really want Donald Trump and his socially conservative and Christian whack job – or more crudely pointed out, a fucked-in-the-head conservative Christian nut job – as the Vice President of the United States, assuming *IF* Trump is elected to that office on Tuesday, November 8, 2016?

I. Don’t. Think. So!

Or, more to the point, *FUCK*! *THAT*! *SHIT*!

Libertarian Presidential Candidate and Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson Interviewed on Real Time with Bill Maher

Bill Maher and Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Screen-Shot 2016-07-01

 

On last night’s HBO‘s Real Time with Bill Maher, limousine liberal and Real Time host Bill Maher interviewed 2016 Libertarian presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson at the beginning of his show, talking about Bill seeing Gary’s name a lot lately because Gary is the third name in the race and that part of the reason there is so much talk about Johnson in the race is that they don’t like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Here’s the transcript of the discussion that transpired during the broadcast:

Bill Maher: You know, I, I see your name a lot lately, uh, because you are the third person in the race. Now you have to admit part of the reason why there is so much talk about you is they don’t like the other two.

Gov. Gary Johnson: Uh, completely agree, but, uh….

Maher:[interrupting] And you’ll take it, right?

Johnson: Well, uh, but Bill Weld and myself are the only third party candidates that are going to be on the ballot in all 50 states. So there is a justification.

Maher:[interrupting]  Oh, you will be in all 50 states…

Johnson:[interrupting as well] Yeah, yeah.

Maher: ….already? Because the last time I read it wasn’t  up to 50, but…

Johnson: [interrupting again]  No, it’s not, but, uh,….

Maher: Far ahead.

Johnson: Yes, far ahead of 2012. We were on the ballot in about 48 states.

Maher: And you’re polling in about 10 percent. But if you get 15 percent in the polls, then you’re in the debates, and that’ll change the game, right?

Johnson:  Right, and it’s really key right now just to be in these polls. We’re not in all these polls, and the polls that we’re in is always after Clinton and Trump and then as an afterthought, uh, Johnson. They posted a poll here a couple of days ago where Clinton and Trump and then another candidate got 12 percent, not even naming my name. So it’s a rigged game.

Maher:[interrupting immediately] It is a rigged game.

Johnson:[also interrupting immediatgely] A rigged game. You know…

Maher: But they, you know, Trump….

Johnson: But it is the way it is.

Maher: Trump says that too. But now, I mean, you were the Republican governor of, um, um, New Mexico.

Johnson: Yep, blue state. A Republican governor of blue sta-

Maher: [Interrupting again] Not now. Not when you were there.

Johnson: Yeah, no. It was very blue then. It was 2 to 1 blue then.

Maher: But you’re not blue.

Johnson: Well, uh, what’s the combination when you’re…

Maher: [immediately interrupting] You’re a Republican.

Johnson: [emphatically interrupting Maher] Republican governor and…

Maher:  [interrupting abruptly] And William Weld was a Republican, right? The point I’m making is you guys are….I don’t know….if you have changed so much, to me you just…you guys are Republican classic…

Johnson: [interjecting] No….

Maher: ….and Trump is Republican crazy or whatever. I mean, if this was, if this was, but what I’m just saying is if this was 25 years ago, you wouldn’t even be thinking about running as a Libertarian. You would be a mainstream Republican.

Johnson: Well, I always have been a libertarian by philosophy. I mean, recogni – or, uh, identifying myself as as a libertarian. Really, you could argue that I got to serve as a Republican, uh….

Maher: [interrupting once again] But I, I….

Johnson: I got to serve as a libertarian under, you know, the sheep’s clothing of being a Republican.

Maher: I read the Libertarian website. I mean, it’s like, woah, we want less government, and we’re gonna cut taxes. I’m like, “We already have a party that says that. It’s the Republicans.”  What’s the big difference?

Johnson: Well, being fiscally conservative and socially “we-really-don’t-give-a-damn” as you don’t force that on me. So people being able to make choices in their own lives. A woman’s right to choose, marriage equality, legalizing pot…[Met with an extremely loud applause from the audience]

Maher: Ok, but….but….with Donald Trump being the candidate, it seems to me that is kinda where the Republican Party has gone. Fiscally, they’re….I don’t know where they are fiscally ’cause he’s against free trade, but certainly on the social front? Donald Trump? Three wives? He…Maureen Dowd asked him about, uh, abortion, and he went, “Interesting question. What’s your next one?”

Johnson: Well…

Maher: They don’t seem to care. The evangelicals like him. I mean, he is not the old school Republican.

Johnson: Well, when he talked about abortion, and when he said, uh, “Should a woman should be punished?”, and he said, “Yes, a woman should be punished,” and then a couple of hours later, changed that to say that the doctor should be punished….um…. [Laughter coming from theaudience] I’ve got so many differences with, uh –

Maher: [interrupting again] Right.

Johnson: – Donald Trump starting with immigration. I mean, when they started talking…..when he started talking about, uh, –

Maher: [Interrupting] of course

Johnson: – going after 11 million undocumented workers, uh, that’s –

Maher: But….

Johnson: – just –

Maher: But…

Johnson: – crazy.

Maher: But not just Libertarians feel that way. All sane people feel that way. [Mild laughter from a woman in the audience]

Johnson: I think so. I think most sane people are actually Libertarian. It’s just that they don’t know it. [Loud laughter from a woman in the audience met with the audience applause]

Maher: But unfortunately….[Applause continuing and then dying] Unfortunately a lot of people who are not sane are Libertarian. I saw your convention. I mean, the vision of government is somewhere between, uh, colonial Williamsburg and Atlantis. [Johnson chuckles a bit][Loud laughter from the woman in that audience]

Johnson: An-

Maher: Uh, their economic theory is like, uh, “Mad Max takes your gas, and you die.” [Light laughter from the woman in the audience.] That…. I….there are some crazy people in your party. You got booed –

Johnson: And that….

Maher: – for saying things that I don’t think are really out of the mainstream….like five-year-olds shouldn’t get to buy heroin.

Johnson:[Loud laughing woman in that audience] Or that, that I support drivers licenses as a competency to drive a car.

Maher: There was an issue about blind people getting drivers licenses, and those nuts were –

Johnson: I don’t….

Maher: – for it.

Johnson: I don’t think – I don’t think crazy is unique to the Libertarian Party. I think you go to that Republican convention –

Maher: But somewhere –

Johnson: – you’ll see some crazy. You go to the Democratic convention you’ll see some crazy there too.

Maher: True. But somewhere along the way Libertarian, I don’t know, it gets –

Johnson: Well, the Libertarians did make me their nominee along with Bill Weld, so –

Maher: Yes –

Johnson: I can definitely say….

Maher: You know, you are the top of the sane in the Party. You are the right guy. [Johnson chuckles] [Loud applause from his audience] So, uh, they want to abolish a lot of stuff. What do you want to abolish? They, you know, they don’t like any gun laws, they don’t like the Fed, and you know, the gold standard they want to bring back, I mean, some –

Johnson: Well, I mean, I may not be in, in, in those camps as much, but I do believe government is too big, it tries to accomplish too much.  By doing that, they tax. They take money away from me – taxes, and that’s money I can be spending on my own.

Maher: How much, how much would you cut defense? That’s where the rubber meets the road on that issue.

Johnson: Well, ideally, you set a target, uh, to reduce the spending when it comes to, uh, defense. But, hey, the key word is “defense,” not “offense.” And we need to stop with these military –

Maher: But how much? It’s like, uh…it’s, uh….

Johnson: Well, if you, the Pentagon itself says that we should reduce, uh, bases in the United States by 20 percent. That hasn’t happened because congressmen and women stand up for those bases in their states, and that’s why that doesn’t happen. But, uh, look, yes, we can, we can cut, uh, spend, expenditures –

Maher: Give me –

Johnson: – for defense.

Maher: – give me a number. I mean, we probably spend a trillion when you add in the nukes and the wars and the stuff we put off the books.

Johnson: Well, I think you can target 20 percent –

Maher: 20?

Johnson: – and that wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Maher: Wow. You’re saner than I thought. [Johnson chuckles, and a loud applause from the audience goes off] I was hoping…I was hoping you’d say 50. Ok. So….

Johnson: And that….and, and,  and that’s targeted.  I’m –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – looking to be elected President of the United States, since this is gonna have to be something that will have –

Maher: And you have said –

Johnson: – to come out of Congress.

Maher: You have not smoked pot in, what, eight weeks?

Johnson: Well, with, the legalization of marijuana, marijuana products are edibles. I had edibles about eight weeks ago.

Maher: Ok. [Loud applause with Johnson chuckling] But you have said, and I think this is prudent, that, uh, even though you do enjoy marijuana, when you’re in office you won’t because, you know, the 3 A.M. call –

Johnson: It’s a 24/7 job –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – and actually running for President is a 24/7 –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – job, so, uh.

Maher: So what’s that like not, not being high? [Applause from audience with Johnson lightly chuckling]

Johnson: What I, what I –

Maher: [Chuckling] The sacrifices you politicians make!

Johnson: What I want to be careful on is I, I don’t drink. But I don’t begrudge anyone having a drink in the evening to take the edge off. I don’t begrudge anybody having pot to take the edge off, so….

Maher: Lots of presidents were completely plod. Nixon, when he was going through Watergate, was going, “Guh, guh, guh, guh” every night. We know that. [Chuckles and laughter from the audience and from Johnson]

Johnson: People being –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: – able to make their own choices, and in my particular case, and I’m just speaking for myself –

Maher: Right.

Johnson: Like I say, 24/7 job running –

Maher: I hope you really get into the debates, because that would be great. [Loud applause from the audience and smile from Johnson] Thank you, Gary Johnson.

Johnson: Oh my gosh!

Maher: Good luck! Godspeed! Let’s meet our panel!

Here’s the video of that interview on Real Time.

Of course, that limousine liberal had to smear Libertarians at our Libertarian National Convention at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida at the end of May 2016 for being “crazy” because of the sane ideology that we have. He blew all of our ideas and principles out of proportion and assassinated our characters in the name of keeping his so-called “relevant” talk show high on a worthless premium cable channel.

Here’s a tweet from Real Time’s account as well.

Real Time's Twitter Tweet - 07-01-2016Overall, the interview was….well, not bad. I just find it interesting that Maher erred on two things:

  1. He  thinks all Libertarians are “crazy” because he claims a few of them wanted blind people “to drive cars” and a five-year-old to buy heroin. But then he never talks about how bat shit crazy he is when his limousine liberal mind wants to regulate all businesses, worship the State, and everyone to despise all Muslims and every religion on the planet as well as convert to his religion of climate change. Not one single person at the Convention advocated heroin use for five-year-olds and the blind to drive automobiles. So he’s full of shit there, considering that’s never been reported from any Libertarian Facebook group of which I’ve been a member.and,
  2. He thinks our idea of government is “somewhere between colonial Williamsburg and Atlantis.” Not only that, our economic theory allegedly stated at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida is the following: “Mad Max takes your gas, and you die.” What a fucktard of the highest order! Sure, Billy Boy, and you fuck and hump every hooker and chick with your hard Jewish cock they can get their hands on at your age of 60 or whatever the fuck your age is and you don’t mind getting an STD because of your irresponsible sexual practice of free love, I bet. That, and you probably snort coke on their tits and smoke some chronic to take the edge off with uber-style.

I can’t stand that snarky limousine liberal son of a bitch.

Reason and Reason TV’s Editor-in-Chief Nick Gillespie Schools Ann Coulter, Dan Savage, and Bill Maher Himself on Real Time with Bill Maher

Reason and Reason TV‘s Editor-in-Chief Nick Gillespie appeared on limousine liberal comic Bill Maher‘s ludicrously humorless comedic/political talk TV show Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO in which he schooled Maher himself, Savage Lovecast podcaster and limousine liberal gay activist Dan Savage, and Ann Coulter on topics such as the reason for Donald Trump‘s nomination after his campaign win in Indiana, the United States’ vile xenophobic and jingoistic immigration policy favoring “legal immigrants” and opposing “illegal immigrants,” and so forth. Gillespie points out that the American populace overall is eschewing political parties in favor of more economic and social freedoms and succinctly points out how bad Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton truly are on their records.

Here’s Nick Gillespie versus Savage, Coulter, and Maher on the real libertarian stances that are the centerpieces of his arguments:

Coulter comes off “batshit crazy” like a loon on immigration, whereas Savage has a more persuasive and cogent argument to make than Coulter, stating that “illegal” immigrants pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits. That’s a libertarian argument that Gillespie and I have been pontificating all along, although Savage couches it as a Leftist position entirely.

Here’s another one with Gillespie, Savage, Coulter, Maher, and Emmy winning-actor and director Bryan Cranston have to say on the transgender bathroom issue, the Libertarian Party, and other issues.

Finally, here’s Gillespie, Maher, Coulter, Savage, and Cliffside Malibu CEO/head honcho Richard Tate on the drug czar and socialized medicine. Tate waxes lovingly on the White House‘s Office of Drug Control Policy, especially Drug Czar “Director” Michael Botticelli, which resulted in Nick’s response to him was the following:

Bill Maher’s HBO show is cardinally and purposely made for Leftists and *ONLY* for Leftists, not limousine conservatives (even the Trump variety of what you’d brand conservatives), and certainly libertarians. Although he does allow them on the air, he is an ass hat because he drinks the dumb liberal Kool-Aid, and swallows his liberalism whole as if it’s the gospel truth and only truth. Thankfully Nick Gillespie does his best setting the libertarian record straight with the Leftist gene pool.

But that’s what you expect from statist liberals. It’s as good as it gets.

My Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President 2016 Campaign

It’s no secret that I’ve been involved in Libertarian politics for the longest time. My earliest memory dates back to the fall of 1999 when I first joined the Libertarian Party to get involved in third party politics, including embracing the ideals, tenets, and philosophy of libertarianism. When I first joined the Party, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to be involved in political campaigns, to spread the message and philosophy of libertarianism, and to educate the public on the definition of and convictions of the freedom message because it was powerful, unique, strong, and stellar, unlike the (progressive) liberal and conservative philosophies that have guided their own movements. As time went on, from 1999 throughout the Aughts, I became a champion of libertarian (and Libertarian) ideals that none of the major parties – the Republican and Democratic Parties – shared at all and that a new revolution was on the verge of launching before the American people’s eyes.

Since June 5, 2015, I was asked by Libertarian presidential candidate Joy Waymire to be her campaign manager. For months I worked with Joy to bring support for as well as supporters into her campaign, and it hasn’t been a very simple task, considering I was uncertain how much support she was receiving, and that had never been made available to me. But I was honored, eager, and anxious to be her campaign manager, despite the fact that I was completely and utterly wet behind the ears and didn’t know what I was walking into.

With all of those points in mind, here’s what I posted on my Facebook profile, officially announcing my resignation as her campaign manager after I privately emailed my resignation to her.

This is what I posted:

My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Clip (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Part II with Comments - Clip II - (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 My Public Facebook Resignation as Campaign Manager from the Joy Waymire for President Campaign Part III with Comments - Clip III - (April 11, 2016) - 04-16-2016 - FINAL
Joy subsequently posted a response to what I posted by issuing the following:

Joy Waymire's Joy Waymire for 2016 Campaign Suspension - Clip I - (April 13, 2016) - 04-16-2016 Joy Waymire's Joy Waymire for 2016 Campaign Suspension Part II - Clip II - (April 13, 2016) - 04-16-2016

I will be her campaign manager again in 2020, and I hope the entire supporters and members will unite behind her if she wins the nomination….assuming no other candidate striking the Gary Johnson resemblance is running at that point.

2020, here we come!

The Free State Project Kicks Out Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Over His Support for Sexual Relations Between Teenagers and Adults

The Free State Project, a private organization that was founded by libertarian idealist Jason Sorens and subsequently organized in 2003 to bring libertarians to a state where they can gather as a community to promote economic and social activism, change economic and social policies, and unite all libertarians and freedom-loving individuals to foster and promote the ideas of liberty, chose the State of New Hampshire. Since then, it has brought in tons of activists around the country and the world, including Free Talk Live and its hosts Ian Freeman and Mark Edge who had been pimping the FSP for years on-air as well as off-the-air.

However, as of late, the Free State Project has made a decision regarding its business and personal relationships with Ian Freeman over his support and defense of the “rights” of the youth with respect to his contorted belief that it is socially tolerable and acceptable for an adult male in his 20s, 30s, 40s, or even 50s to sleep with a teenager, whether that young individual is a male or female. In other words, Ian couches the “anything goes” mentality that is usually found in limousine liberals and calls it anarchy (or, under the guise of liberty) for teenagers and adult males to consummate relationships with one another.

The Free State Project has kicked out Ian out of the group and has made it clear that Ian will not be allowed to attend PorcFest and Liberty Forum as well.

On FSP President Matt Phillip’s blog (which is part of the Free State Project as well), he drafted an open letter which details the board’s decision in great detail:

The Free State Project's Decision Regarding Its Banning and Ending Its Relationship with Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Part 1 - Clip - 03-17-2016

The Free State Project's Decision Regarding Its Banning and Ending Its Relationship with Free Talk Live Host Ian Freeman Part 2 - Clip - 03-17-2016

 

Thanks should go to new Free State Project president Matt Phillips for making the most difficult decision. This isn’t the most popular decision, but it was one that had to be made, regardless of the outcome that likely follows.
