Blagojevich appeal, Federal rules of Criminal Procedure, Denial of tapes setup?, Federal Discovery rules clear

“Why was Obama in constant contact with Tony Rezko in 2004 when Rezko was conspiring with William Cellini to use TRS, Teacher Retirement Fund, assets for political gain and personal enrichment?”…Citizen Wells

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

“There is enough corruption in Illinois so that all it takes is someone who is serious about finding it to uncover it. If a U.S. attorney is not finding corruption in Illinois, they’re not seriously looking for it.”…Northwestern Law Professor James Lindgren

I have researched, analyzed and lived with Operation Board Games and the Chicago corruption involving Tony Rezko, Stuart Levine, Rod Blagojevich, Barack Obama, et al for over 3 years. I am sticking with the following conclusion I came to.

The fix was in in 2006. Blagojevich, who had been the presumptive presidential candidate until then was exposed. Barack Obama would replace him and he had to be protected. That is why the prosecution of Blagojevich was delayed and dragged out. There is more to this saga.

We are awaiting news of the Blagojevich appeal. Was this a setup too or was Blagojevich designated as the sacrificial lamb?

From the Chicago Tribune June 28, 2011.

“Blagojevich appeal likely to revisit complaint about tapes”

“Rod Blagojevich and his lawyers have long complained that prosecutors and the judge in his two trials were fundamentally unfair, but after his sweeping corruption conviction Monday, only a successful appeal built on that belief stands between the former governor and a possible double-digit prison sentence.

From early denials of Blagojevich’s demands to “play all the tapes” in his case, to U.S. District Judge James Zagel’s limiting of the former governor’s defense at his retrial, Blagojevich has always felt handcuffed, said one of his lawyers, Sam Adam Jr.

“If you look at the whole process, he was condemned from the moment he was arrested,” contended Adam, who took part in the first trial, which ended largely deadlocked.

Blagojevich was convicted on 17 corruption charges, including all 11 counts alleging he sought something of value for himself to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama after his 2008 election as president.

Blagojevich, who has been found indigent by the court, will likely seek to have a lawyer appointed in the coming weeks to represent him in the appeal, Adam said. Taxpayer money would be used to pay for that attorney.

The appeal will likely argue that in both trials, the judge unfairly barred the defense from playing many undercover recordings critical to its case, severely limited cross-examination of government witnesses and allowed too many jurors who professed bias onto the panel, Adam said.

The government was allowed to play at trial more than 90 of the secretly made recordings of Blagojevich, Adam said, while the defense was allowed just four.

“The jury only got to hear one side of the tapes,” Adam said. “If you do that, you’re going to guarantee a conviction.”

In a mistrial motion filed June 9 as closing arguments were under way, the team of defense lawyers at the retrial accused Zagel of bias and having a “closed mind” on the evidence.”

The Federal rules on discovery are crystal clear.

“Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure”


Rule 16. Discovery and Inspection

(a) Government’s Disclosure.

(1) Information Subject to Disclosure.”

“(B) Defendant’s Written or Recorded Statement.

Upon a defendant’s request, the government must disclose to the defendant, and make available for inspection, copying, or photographing, all of the following:

(i) any relevant written or recorded statement by the defendant if:

•the statement is within the government’s possession, custody, or control; and
•the attorney for the government knows — or through due diligence could know — that the statement exists;”

Was this part of the setup?

    “The Republican National Committee on Monday asked the Department of Justice to investigate whether the president’s reelection fundraising broke federal law.

    In a letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus cited a fundraising video President Obama appears in that seems to have been taped in the White House.

    Federal law makes it a crime for the president to solicit political contributions in a place of official government business.

    “In this case, despite the White House Counsel’s indication to the contrary, it appears that President Obama recorded the video in the Map Room,” the letter reads. “The Map Room has been used for a myriad of official duties, including the administration of the oath of office to President Obama by Chief Justice Roberts.”

    The letter asserts that if the president recorded the fundraising video in the Map Room, “then it appears he has committed a crime under federal law.”

    “Chapter Three of John MacArthur’s book, The Truth War: Fighting for Certainty in an Age of Deception is entitled “Constrained Into Conflict: Why We Must Fight for the Faith. (snip).

    “Notice: no one discovered or invented the Christian faith. It was delivered to us. It was not as if someone mystically ascended into the transcendental realm and drew down an understanding of the truth. We don’t need an enlightened guru to open the mysteries of the faith for us (cf. 1 John 2:27). The truth was entrusted by God to the whole church – intact and “once for all.” It came by revelation, through the teaching of the apostles as preserved for us in Scripture. Jude speaks of “the faith” as a complete body of truth already delivered – so there is no need to seek additional revelation or to embellish the substance of “the faith” in any way. Our task is simply to interpret, understand, publish, and defend the truth God has once and for all delivered to the church.

    The fact that the Bible is the Written Word of God, Jesus is the Living Word of God, and the Holy Spirit of God guides us into all truth allows born again believers in Jesus Christ to “interpret, understand, publish, and defend the truth God has once and for all delivered to the church.” How can we spot untruths, heresy, apostasy and lies? By making sure that what is being espoused by any preacher, teacher, or layperson is not contradictory to what the Bible teaches!

    John MacArthur explains:

    That is what the Truth War is ultimately all about. It is not mere wrangling between competing earthly ideologies. It is not simply a campaign to refine someones religious creed or win a denominational spitting contest. It is not a battle of wits over arcane theological fine points. It is not an argument for sport. It is not like a school debate, staged to see who is more skilled or more clever in the art of argumentation. It is not merely academic in any sense. And it is certainly not a game. It is a very serious struggle to safeguard the heart and soul of truth itself and to unleash that truth against the powers of darkness – in hopes of rescuing the eternal souls of men and women who have been unwittingly ensnared by the trap of devilish deception.

    This is a battle we cannot wage effectively if we always try to come across to the world as merely nice, nonchalant, docile, agreeable, and fun-loving people. We must not take our cues from people who are perfectly happy to compromise the truth wherever possible “for harmony’s sake.” Friendly dialogue may sound affable and pleasant. But neither Christ or the apostles ever confronted serious, soul-destroying error by building collegial relationships with false teachers. In fact, we are expressly forbidden to do that (Romans 16:17; 2 Corinthians 6:14-15; 2 Thessalonians 3:6; 2 Timothy 3:5; 2 John 10-11). Scripture is clear about how we are to respond when the very foundations of the Christian faith are under attack, and Jude states it succinctly: it is our bounden duty to contend earnestly for the faith.”

    “Allen West’s Weekly Wrap-up”

    Dear Patriot,

    Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, here we are for another weekly update. There is only one word that describes the past week: appalling.

    It was appalling to hear the President of the United States truly threaten our nation’s senior citizens and Military Veterans/Retirees. Furthermore, the blatant lie that 80% of Americans want their taxes raised is beyond unconscionable.

    I believe we are headed towards the ultimate ideological clash in America. There is a widening chasm which has developed between those who believe in principled fiscal policies and those desiring the socialist bureaucratic nanny-state. An unfortunate aspect to this is the complicity of a mainstream media which does not report facts, but rather ideological bias. This clash will determine the future and legacy of our Constitutional Republic.

    I know who wins in the end, but it is going to be one heck of a fight.

    This week the House GOP shall vote on a plan that will enable us to protect the full faith and credit of the United States but also tackle the long-term fiscal viability of our nation. The plan is summarized by the concept of “Cut, Cap, and Balance.” Our Congressional office issued a statement on Friday which explains the legislation, of which I am an original cosponsor – you can click here to view.

    Neither I nor any other reasonable person wants to see the United States default on its debt interest payments and threaten a potential rise in our interest rates. I do not want to see my country devolve into the European situation played out in Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, or Spain (PIIGS). However, now is the time to get our fiscal house in order by implementing spending control measures which will begin to turn around our economic ship of state.

    We must have equitable and immediate spending cuts to our non-defense discretionary spending. We must cap federal government spending as per the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), currently near 25%, down between 18-20% putting it in line with revenues. And lastly, we must have a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution which will force us to prioritize and operate within our means, similar to American households and many state governments.

    As for President Barack Obama, he has no such plan. He has never had a plan, just words, just speeches. His Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 failed 0-97 in the United States Senate. Speaking of the Senate, it has been over 800 days since the Senate, under Democrat control, has passed a budget.

    President Obama has added some $4.5 trillion to our national debt in less than three years. President Obama has produced record deficits, the negative difference between revenues and spending, of $1.42 trillion, $1.29 trillion, and an estimated $1.65 trillion for each year since taking office.

    The unemployment rate under President Obama is a problem of epic proportions, national (9.2%), black community (16.2%), and among veterans (approx 12%). This comes from someone who told us his almost trillion-dollar stimulus would keep unemployment in America under 8%. As well, the almost $2 trillion Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has been a disaster, and the worst is yet to come.

    This has nothing to do with race (unfortunately my colleague from Texas, Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee believes so), and it has everything to do with an economic vision which is anathema to our free market/free enterprise system…an economic vision which has failed at every turn.

    And all we hear from the President is talk about “shared sacrifice,” “tax the rich,” and “increase revenues by tax hikes.” It was just December 2010 that President Obama and the Democrats extended the Bush era tax rates for two years…now less than a year later they are FLIP-FLOPPING!

    The problem is, there is no confidence and certainty in the fiscal vision emanating from Washington D.C. and hence revenues and receipts are down. We are not setting the conditions or creating an environment for economic and job growth. For all of you, that is what has to change, and that is where I am committed to seeing change and not the empty rhetorical doublespeak of 2008.

    I suppose the President forgot that 47% of wage earning households in America do not pay federal income taxes.

    In the area of foreign policy, the United States has officially recognized the Libyan rebels as the “legitimate” government of Libya. Now, I am just a simple fella from down South, but I recall a previous Democrat President recognizing a bunch of undefined ideological zealots called the Taliban…and we all see how that ended up!

    The voices of the American people who want sound fiscal, taxation, and regulatory policy need to be heard this week. I am issuing a “call to action” – let the White House, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid hear how you feel. Are there REALLY 80% of Americans who want higher taxes?

    I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.

    Steadfast and Loyal,

    Brothers & Sisters In Christ – it is up to We the People to END this New World Order / One World Gov’s elite’s evil NWO puppet, B. Hussein Obama, the Foreign & Domestic Enemy Terrorist Usurper from being able to usher in Satan the Devil’s “New World Order” in the USA. The devil Satan knows his time is growing short on earth & he is using many people to do his work on earth as the very lost, & very sinful & fallen souls that they are.

    The devil Satan, the adversary to humanity & GOD is trying to use his false prophet evil servant, B. Hussein Obama, who was illegally installed into our USA federal government, through Obama’s daily lies & daily commission of his evil crimes, so Satan can try to use the fallen souls like Obama & Soros & the corrupt New World Order elites to try to destroy as many people’s souls as they can in the USA & in the world.

    Our ALMIGHTY GOD wants the Daily Serial Career Criminals, Barry & Michelle Obama, George Soros, & the other criminals in the world held responsible for their evil, sinful & criminal behaviors on earth, and arrested, and stopped!! GOD does not protect people’s CRIMES & SINS that people commit!!!

    ALMIGHTY GOD is a 100% ALL GOOD, 100% ALL HOLY, 100% ALL VIRTUOUS & 100% ALL LOVING GOD. GOD is a 100% PERFECT, & 100% ALL RIGHTEOUS, 100% INFINITELY POWERFUL, INFINITELY WISE, & a 100% JUST FOREVER LIVING GOD!! GOD COMMANDS people to stop sinning on earth, & to stop performing EVIL DEEDS on earth, & to STOP LYING on earth!!


    The Forever Living Creator – Almighty GOD – the Most Holy Trinity has said that GOD has no evil, no death, no lies, no unrighteousness, or anything imperfect, or impure in the character of GOD. GOD says that GOD is incapable of making any errors, of lying, or doing anything wrong, & is incapable of saying or doing anything wrong, unjust, or evil. GOD says that GOD is Always Faithful & Always True, Almighty & Infinitely Powerful, ALL Holy, ALL Perfect, ALL GOOD, ALL Virtuous, & Always Forever Living.

    Unfortunately, the serial criminal sinners like B. Hussein Obama, Pelosi, Soros, and many others are willing servants of evil, crimes, lies, & Satan the devil. They are horribly being used by Satan the devil to try to accomplish the endgame for Satan, which is to destroy people’s souls. These people’s consciences are completely seared by their crimes & sins, & they no longer recognize sins, crimes, & evil for what they are! Many people in Congress & in the USA judiciary & in many state governments are fallen souls who no longer recognize what evil, crimes, or sins against GOD or humanity are!

    We The People MUST return back to GOD & return back to Lord Jesus Christ & GOD THE MOST HOLY TRINITY & the Holy Spirit. We The People MUST Daily use the Greatest Gift from GOD which is becoming brand new people are who spiritually reborn by Repentance & Turning Away From Evil & Lies, To Start Living a Spiritual Revival in the USA of Constant Daily Prayer, as we live Daily Works of Virtuous Love in faith by following Lord Jesus Christ in humility & obedience to God’s Forever Living Words in the Holy Bible. When we do this GOD will act amoung us & miracles will happen in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ Emmanuel – THE LORD GOD & SAVIOR OF HUMANITY IN GOD THE MOST HOLY TRINITY.


  10. Hi Larry Sinclair!! Thank you for helping to bring B. Hussein Obama to justice!!


    The Words Under This Video:

    “This nation is quickly plunging headlong into the darkness of globalism and a New World Order. Barak Obama is the man [set up to try to] take us there. All the ancient prophecies required for entering the tribulation period have been fulfilled. The world is positioned in every phase for exactly what the Bible said was coming and the charismatic globalist Barak Obama is the man destined to bring the United States into world goverment. Socialism, Marxism and soon totalitarianism and dictatorship. This is not a ploy to get you to change your vote, it’s far too late for that. Obama is going to bring “Change” like you’ve never seen before. turn to Christ now while there is still time. The 7 year tribulation period upon the earth is set to begin very soon and then the return of Jesus Christ to the Earth. The Bible is real, God is real and hell is real.The time coming on the world is going to be the most horrific and disturbing period in the history of the world. One world government lead by a one world dictator and a one world religion. A cashless society in which you must receive a mark in order to buy or sell. The Beast is coming and Barack Obama welcomes it!”

    * * * *

    Soebarkah – Barry Soetoro aka B. Hussein Obama is trying to financially destroy Free Market Capitalism in the USA by working to intentionally bankrupt the USA to help usher in the Communist/Islamist Muslim New World Order/ One World Government totalitarian dictatorship that he thinks he will transform the USA into. Obama is clearly an out of control INSANE SOCIOPATH MADMAN. OBAMA MUST BE IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED & IMMEDIATELY STOPPED FROM COMMITTING HIS OUTRAGEOUS & COMPLETELY LAWLESS, 100% DAILY SERIAL CAREER CRIMES

    “A Word From the Lord February 20, 2009

    This word was given to me in Richmond, VA at 6:13 AM. The night before I had been at a small but powerful prayer meeting with four others who love God and we were all in one accord. These words were prophesied to me, “Get your notepad ready! You will reveal the heart of the Father.


    “How else could the words of My holy Bible, which were breathed and inspired by Me and given to man to write down, stand for all time to instruct the path of life for all mankind. It all hangs on my very words and nothing by any means will destroy it or keep it from coming to pass – every word of it!
    For My words are spirit, they are life, and they are eternal. They are supernatural.

    Please treat them with honor, dignity, and respect, because how you treat My Word is how you treat Me! They are one and the same.

    You glorify Me by believing, obeying, and speaking My words. Simply stated – this is true life at it’s best and the way I designed it. Follow Me by following what I tell you to do and say. There is power in agreement. I am the one true God who keeps His Word. Say amen.

    We will experience victory more continuously in our lives when we continuously and faithfully speak the Word of God and His Word only. It is very simple and yet so profound. Within the Word is the power, anointing, and the substance of faith that produces the form of what is spoken.

  19. Read: Psalm 51 – July 19


    By Richard W. De Haan

    “Create In Me A Clean Heart, O GOD, and Renew A Steadfast Faithful Spirit in You within me.” Psalm 51:10

    “When British Evangelist Gipsy Smith was asked how to start a revival, he said, “Go home, lock yourself in your room, kneel down in the middle of your floor. Draw a chalk mark all around yourself and ask God to start the revival inside that chalk mark. When He was answered your prayer, the revival will be on.”

    “Smith’s reply makes an important point. Even though we should pray for revival in our churches, we need not wait for a spectacular working of God’s Forever Living Holy Spirit in others to experience God’s Power in our own lives. In fact, the Lord is ready right now to bless us personally if we will meet His conditions.

    Are you a believer whose heart has grown cold? Have you become indifferent to the Forever Living Almighty GOD The Lord? Have the things of earth and the pleasures of this life taken priority over the spiritual and Eternal Forever Living values in life? If so, I encourage you to take these steps: (1) Acknowledge your need. (2) Confess your sins to the Forever Living Lord God. (3) Spend time DAILY in God’s Word – the Holy Bible. (4) Talk to your heavenly Father in prayer. (5) Determine to say NO to every temptation of the world, the flesh, and the devil. The Holy Spirit who dwells within you is more powerful than Satan (1 John 4:4).

    So, rather than sitting back and waiting for some great moving of God’s Spirit in the lives of other believers, let’s individually meet the conditions of God for spiritual power, victory, success and great joy in our own lives. This is how a revival is started first. You cannot kindle a fire in another’s heart, until it is burning in your own.”

    O Infinite & Almighty Forever Living Holy God, please revive us again & please fill each heart who comes to you & who trusts in You with your Forever Living Divine Love!

    May each person who comes to you, our Forever Living Almighty Creator – Almighty GOD, be Rekindled & Reinflamed Daily with the Eternal Living Fire of your Forever Living Divine Love from above, our Forever Living Creator God! We pray in constant trust & confidence in You, in the Holy Name of Christ Jesus Emmanuel, the LORD, we pray.

    Obama: Excuse Me!!! I am not done lying yet!!”

    A Comment:

    “Anonymous said:

    Obama knows his time is done, that’s why he must raise the debt limit and absolutely set the stage for the destruction of the American economy. The fact that Republicans are even “negotiating” with this illegal alien is laughable. Someday a movie will be made about this time in American history and it will include a laugh track. The idea that the American government let a foreigner come in and start signing laws and negotiating on behalf of the “American people” is really funny.

    Here is the tagline:
    A mulatto man-child is adopted by an Indonesian, converts to Islam then illegally runs for and wins the presidency of the United States while Congress pretends to negotiate with the usurper over the future of their economy. The usurper threatens to cut off social security to the country’s senior citizens and is not immediately arrested (laughter from the audience).”

    Unfortunately, this is not a joke, and this is happening.

    Please do not post anymore videos with Obama’s face, it makes me sick, and nauseous, to have to look at that liar, and realize the criminal POS has usurped the Presidency of our Country.

    He is not a natural born Citizen of the USA, and he is most likely not a Citizen at all. If he was born in this country he would have a birth certificate, just like every other Citizen, and we wouldn’t have to go through these dog, and pony shows, where the criminal breaks out is latest forgery, in an attempt at fooling the public into believing he has any credibility at all.

    All I see is Bullsh!t, and it makes me sick!

    An ABSOLUTE MUST READ article!!!

    When will Obama crack in public? This article is well-worth the time to read and Mr. Massie’s blunt, truthful comments should be applauded.

    When will Obama crack in public?
    Posted: April 19, 2011 by Mychal Massie

    At a time when many Americans can barely afford Burger King and a movie, Obama boasts of spending a billion dollars on his re-election campaign. Questioned at a recent appearance about the spiraling fuel costs, Obama said, “Get used to it” – and with an insouciant grin and chortle, he told another person at the event, who complained about the effect high fuel prices were having on his family, to “get a more fuel-efficient car.”

    The Obamas behave as if they were sharecroppers living in a trailer and hit the Powerball, but instead of getting new tires for their trailer and a new pickup truck, they moved to Washington. And instead of making possum pie, with goats and chickens in the front yard, they’re spending and living large at taxpayer expense – opulent vacations, gala balls, resplendent dinners and exclusive command performances at the White House, grand date nights, golf, basketball, more golf, exclusive resorts and still more golf. In the 1950’s they called it acting (N***ER RICH)

    Expensive, ill-fitting and ill-chosen wigs and fashions hardly befit the first lady of the United States. The Obamas have behaved in every way but presidential – which is why it’s so offensive when we hear Obama say, in order “to restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrific– but we don’t have to sacrifice the America we believe in.”

    The American people have been sacrificing; it is he and his family who are behaving as if they’ve never had two nickels to rub together – and now, having hit the mother lode, they’re going to spend away their feelings of inadequacy at the taxpayers’ expense.

    Obama continues to exhibit behavior that, at best, can be described as mobocratic and, at worst, reveals a deeply damaged individual. In a February 2010 column, I asked, “Is Obama unraveling?” I wrote that it was beginning to appear the growing mistrust of him and contempt for his policies was beginning to have a destabilizing effect on him.

    At that time, I wrote that not having things go one’s way can be a bitter pill, but reasonable people don’t behave as he was behaving. He had insulted Republicans at their luncheon, where he had been an invited guest. I had speculated that was, in part, what had led him to falsely accuse Supreme Court justices before Congress, the nation and the world, during the 2010 State of the Union address.

    It appeared, at that time, as if he were “fraying around the emotional edges.” That behavior has not abated – it has become more pronounced. While addressing the nation, after being forced to explain the validity of his unilateral aggression with Libya, America witnessed a petulant individual scowling and scolding the public for daring to insist he explain his actions.

    But during an afternoon speech to address the budget/debt, he took his scornful, unstable despotic behavior to depths that should give the nation cause for concern. Displaying a dark psychopathy more representative of an episode of “The Tudors” television series, he invited Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to sit in the front row during his speech and then proceeded to berate both Ryan and Ryan’s budget-cutting plan. Even liberal Democrats were put off by the act.

    MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough questioned the sanity of Obama’s actions.

    Today, criticism is coming from all sides. A senior Democrat lawmaker said, “I have been very disappointed in [Obama], to the point where I’m embarrassed that I endorsed him. It’s so bad that some of us are thinking, is there some way we can replace him? How do you get rid of this guy?” (“Democrats’ Disgust with Obama,” The Daily Beast, April 15, 2011)

    Steve McCann wrote: Obama’s speech “was chock full of lies, deceit and crass fear-mongering. It must be said that [he] is the most dishonest, deceitful and mendacious person in a position of power I have ever witnessed” (“The Mendacity of Barack Obama,”, April 15, 2011).

    McCann continued: “[His] performance was the culmination of four years of outright lies and narcissism that have been largely ignored by the media, including some in the conservative press and political class who are loath to call [him] what he is in the bluntest of terms: a liar and a fraud. That he relies on his skin color to intimidate, either outright or by insinuation [against] those who oppose his radical agenda only add to his audacity. It is apparent that he has gotten away with his character flaws his entire life, aided and abetted by sycophants around him. …”

    With these being among the kinder rebukes being directed at Obama, and with people becoming less intimidated by his willingness to use race as a bludgeon, with falling poll numbers in every meaningful category and an increasingly aggressive tea-party opposition – how much longer before he cracks completely?

    The coming months of political life are not going to be pleasant for Obama. Possessed by a self-perceived palatine mindset, that in his mind places him above criticism, how long before he cracks in public? Can America risk a man with a documented track record of lying and misrepresenting truth as a basic way of life, who is becoming increasingly more contumelious?

  24. Whistleblower

    People, look at what Tony Rezko was convicted of and how he was convicted. Then ask yourself why his partner in crime Blago, was not convicted of the same, and why the feds were still building a case against Blago in the fall long after they already convicted Rezko. Rezko was sanitized from the Blago case for a reason. Then ask yourself how Fitzgerald can ask people to come forward with information about corruption at the same time he admits that there may be a leak in his office, however he does not care enough to even investigate !!! Come and tell us about the bad guys and MAYBE we won’t tell the bad guys who you are ? Really Fitz ?
    You would think Blago would want to know about the leak from the DOJ to the Tribune. Why has the Blago camp been silent on that matter ? Watch Fitzgerald’s press conference, see for yourself !
