Great Nation America with Great Poverty

(Guided by Holy Spirit on a snowy day in Tokyo)

Great Nation America with Great Poverty

(Grande nation d'Amérique avec une grande pauvreté)

SECTION I: Yesterday at a Book Shop

Yesterday I went to a book shop nearby. I knew I had to buy something there, since I felt that the God requested me to do so.

First, I checked books written by some Japanese politicians, ex-lawmakers, or critics who had been regarded as enemies of the ruling parties.

But, before I found such books, I spotted a book that had taken my attention weeks ago on the Internet.

So, I realized that I came there to buy the book published on January 22, 2008 in Japan: "Hinkon Taikoku Amerika (Poverty Great Nation America)" written by Japanese female author Mika Tsutsumi.

( )

The Japanese female author had been to the U.S. to have a happy life, but eventually came back to Japan to tell Japanese people that there are tens of millions of unhappy or poor people in the American society, though she graduated from a university in New York and worked in a United Nation organization and the Amnesty International.

SECTION II: This Morning New York Times Online

This morning I found a very big news on New York Times Online:

In the largest sweep in recent memory, federal and New York State authorities on Thursday rounded up scores of accused organized crime figures who were indicted on charges including murder, racketeering, construction extortions and the looting of union benefit funds....

The crimes charged in the federal indictment span three decades and include racketeering conspiracy, murder, extortion, theft of union benefits loan-sharking, securities fraud, conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana, money laundering and illegal gambling.

Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo of New York, who oversees the Organized Crime Task Force, said the case was built in large part with the aid of an informer who won the confidence of Gambino crime family figures and helped record hundreds of hours of mob conversations

Indeed, ultimately the Mafia will shake hands with terrorists, since they both do not respect security and safety of hard-working and law-abiding US taxpayers, voters, citizens, and consumers.

Now, we are waiting for good news on this issue from EU, since it is said that there are many gangsters in EU coming from East Europe and China in addition to those from a certain island of Italy.

And, the War on Gangsters should be the first agenda for next US President yet to be.

SECTION III: Last Night BBC Internet Radio

They presented some Afghan people in their radio broadcast.

In Tokyo, a two-day meeting of the Afghanistan Joint Coordination and Monitoring Board (JCMB) was held a few days ago with 13 Afghan Cabinet ministers attending. .

Some Afghan youths were talking in BBC's interview that their country would be a great country in future in very fluent English.

Japan pledged about 100 million dollars to further aid the country plagued with opium, terror, war damage, and various kinds of oppression since the US, UK, and NATO military invasion and manoeuvre to attack Taliban and AlQaeda
* * *

Now, you know what is at stake.

With tens of millions of rich Americans criminally neglecting tens of millions of poor Americans, terrorists and gangsters will find a big chance for their operations in the US society and in their wars against the US Government.

Those gangsters and terrorists would rather allow themselves to point at existence and presence of those rich Americans criminally neglecting tens of millions of poor Americans by way of excuse for their killings.

For example, 55% of African Americans have purchased a house on the sub-prime loan credit.

The ratio is 46% for Hispanic Americans; and only 17% for "White Americans," according to Ms. Tsutsumi's book.

The solution is of course a US Religious Revolution where tens of millions of poor Americans are directly saved by the God who punishes tens of millions of rich Americans in addition to gangsters and terrorists wherever they are hiding.

Vote for a believer who listens to EEE Reporter!

(The next Monday is a Japan's National Holiday, to your surprise, which is National Foundation Day.

It is based on myth rather than historical science. The First Emperor of Japan, "Jin-Mu," is believed to have acceded to the Imperial throne on this day 2667 years ago.

February 12 is the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, a symbolic person who might be part of a US Religious Revolution, secular or unsecular.

Now, you may like to start to think if you should be part of holy glory or a material mirage such as a piece of chocolate sold ostentatiously in New York, Paris, and Tokyo without love to the poor starving to death...)

A Rock on Another Mountain Telling Truth

(Tokyo Metropolitan City Hall and Shinjyuku Downtown in Snow)

A Rock on Another Mountain Telling Truth

(Un rocher sur une autre montagne raconte la vérité.)

SECTION I: Arkansas and Tennessee Hardest Hit

The outcomes of Super Tuesday must be further studied, since Heaven gave a severe warning:

Residents in five Southeastern states rose Wednesday to widespread clusters of destruction caused by an unusually ferocious winter tornado system. At least 52 people were killed and scores more were injured...
Arkansas and Tennessee were the hardest hit, with Arkansas reporting 13 dead and Tennessee 28....

Arkansas and Tennessee are two states where the former US President and the Vice President, both Democrats, are deeply rooted in their political lives.

SECTION II: 80% for "Obama" in Tokyo

A Japan's news program, one of a few TV programs I often only see these days, reported last night that Americans supporting Mr. Barack Obama accounted for 80% of those who registered for the overseas primary voting as Democrats in Tokyo.

A Japanese reporter in New York also reported that the undecided competition between "Hillary" and "Obama" would further continue as long as they have necessary money, pleasing a female news caster in a Tokyo TV studio, while the prospect of Japan's General Election is getting remote.

SECTION III: Who Supports Who?

A Japanese newspaper this morning reported that the poor, the elder, and the not-highly educated support "Hillary."

The rich, the young, and the highly educated support "Obama."

If this competition is between "Condoleezza" and "Hillary," I might choose the former, since the former looked like more suitable for taking a part in a US Religious Revolution.

SECTION IV: Who Said What?

UK Guardian online reads:

But the next president will be different. He or she will not be able to respond to economic recession merely by boosting defence spending and cutting taxes and social programmes, as Mr Bush did in his budget this week. Nor will the next president be a climate-change denier. Mr Bush's successor will think twice before tearing up treaties or undermining international institutions and, if they are a Democrat, will think three times before playing at being a soldier.

The primaries have exposed an anxious mood of self-inquiry as well as a thirst for change. Much of the debate may proceed in a direction which makes America more protectionist and isolationist.

Mrs Clinton found that the economy resonated more than Iraq. The looming recession, house repossessions, affordable healthcare, keeping jobs in the country, border control and immigration are the issues that grip the nation.,,2253544,00.html

So, the English must be backing "Hillary."

Indeed, "Hillary" must have better understanding of a situation around Princess Diana.

Also, another Guardian article reads:

Yesterday morning I heard a BBC radio correspondent say: "Remember, of course, that Ohio is a swing state in American elections.",,2253636,00.html

Truly, Ohio is a place with a great story behind it, which goes back to the era of George Washington and Indian Chief "Little Turtle."
* * *

In my theory, a wife of a president or a prime minister plays a decisive role not only as such but also as a wife of a candidate according to, and depending on, situations of the era.

In this context, Mrs. Nancy Reagan was very unique and mystic, matching the era of the end of the doomful Cold War. After her, only wives of the Bushes ran the White House except ex-able female lawyer Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

In Japan, no one knows who the wife of still influential former Prime Minister Mr. Mori is; everybody knows that then next Prime Minister Mr. Koizumi has been long divorced; no one talks about whether then next Prime Minister Mr. Abe has children; but it is widely assumed that incumbent Prime Minister Mr. Yasuo Fukuda has a son, serving his father as his secretary, and the sophisticated wife from the upper class of Japan.

Finally, in this regard, I really think that the death of Princess Diana in Paris foretold the ensuing fates of the political leaders in countries concerned.

Of course, Japan is included there, since I am highly concerned.

(It is said that Mrs. Abe asked her husband to think about retirement from politics, since Mr. Shinzo Abe reached the top position, Japan's Prime Minister, but was forced to resign by his physical and psychological conditions.

However, it is reportedly said that Mr. Abe is looking forward to another chance for comeback that might come in a decade.

Indeed, if JFK had waited for a decade to run for US Presidency, his son should have been able to become US President even today after his two uncles.

Truly, a girl cannot wait for ten years; but a young man must sometimes wait for a decade, another decade, and 30 years in case, so that a young soldier could become a president or a presidential candidate if not a caesar.

I respect the Vietnam War hero Mr. John McCain, since nowadays some people in Vietnam are acting like Chinese brainwashed by big money.)

(Around Shinjyuku Station on Snowy Sunday, Tokyo)


(Ami, où est mon pays?)

US President Mr. George W. Bush has still one year ahead in office. One year is a lot of days, hours, minutes, seconds, and milli-seconds.

As the largest mission the President has been entrusted to is finding the solution to end threats of terrorism and carrying it out, I'd like to contribute some to it, since Japan is an allied nation with the U.S., though the Japanese Constitution forbids involvement of Japan's Self-Defense Force in war except for homeland defense.

Mr. Michael Moore wrote some according to his conscience in his book "DUDE, WHERE'S MY COUNTRY?" in 2003:

...Bush's program of homeland security is providing us no security at all. If you want real security, I suggest you consider my ideas that will definitely make America a safe country:

1. Catch Osama bin Laden.
...My theory: He's back home in Saudi Arabia being protected by those who have been funding him and getting him the medical help he needs for his failing kidneys...

2. (omitted)

3. Propping up existing dictators does not endear us to the people living under the rule of those dictators.
...Our history of siding with the wrong guy is extensive...Saddam and the Saudi royals are only the start of the long list...

4. When attempting to prop up a Latin American dictator, try to do it without killing too many nuns or archbishops.

5. (omitted)

6. It might be good to find out why hundreds of millions of people on the three continents, stretching from Morocco on the Atlantic to the Philippines in the Pacific, are so pissed off about Israel.

7. Five percent of the world's population (that's us) use up 25 percent of the entire world's energy resources, and the well-off 16 percent, mostly the U.S., Europe, and Japan, use up 80 percent of the world's goods.
...To some, this seems to be a little greedy, and it's got to change...

8. We need to offer the world a drink of water.
...Right now, 1.3 billion people can't have a glass of clean water...

9. People should be able to buy the products they are making.
...Or how about the worker in El Salvador who makes 24 cents for each $140 NBA jersey she produces?...

10. No child must be a salve laborer.

11. When we kill civilians we shouldn't call it "collateral damage."

12. (omitted)

13. (omitted)

14. We must immediately disavow Bush's preemptive war policy.
...We need to slam shut this insane Pandora's box Bush and Cheney have opened...

15. (omitted)

16. Stop terrorizing our own citizens with the Patriot Act.

17. (omitted)

18. And finally...let's set a good example.
...When you treat people well, 99.9 percent of time they respond in kind.

* * *

I am writing these, since it will be a significant and grave problem in future if a US President at last cannot arrest criminals and bring them to justice who killed about 3,000 innocent civilians at the center of New York and DOD in daylight, while the culprits have been clearly identified as they already confessed their guilty deeds.

In future, the US military success in Iraq would probably not be highly regarded, but its failure in taking Mr. Osama bin Laden and his fellows in charge and bringing them to a real court of justice would be gravely criticized.

It is because ultimately stability, peace, and prosperity in the region from Israel to the Persian Gulf can be assured through international cooperation and collaboration including United Nations operations, but the act of terror on the U.S. should be firsthand dealt with and solved sufficiently by the US Government presenting a good example of judiciary conducts to the world.

Everybody know the fact and the details of the 9/11 Terror. Everybody knows who did it. Everybody has his own idea about where the guilty party is hiding. Everybody knows that the US Government can spend tens of billions of dollars for operations of apprehension and capture of them. Everybody knows that US Government can mobilize tens of thousands of troops for operations of apprehension and capture of them. Everybody knows that President Mr. George W. Bush was already given seven years and is still given one more year to carry out this single task and related missions.

Yet, if the Bush Administration cannot apprehend the terrorists who conducted the 9/11 Terror in September 2001, history will really suffer from reasoning why.
* * *

However, ironically, it is also a fact that the Islamic Persian Gulf States have become extremely rich, to the extent to bolstering the Wall Street in New York, during the reign of President Mr. Bush.

However, ironically, it is also a fact that the Israel and Saudi Arabia are now exposed to far less menaces and threats from Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan (with AlQaeda).

However, ironically, it is also a fact that the global oil market has now the minimum assurance of stability and security of provision of crude oil due to the tangible US presence in the Middle East.

Nonetheless, justice should be done on behalf of 4,000 people killed on September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington DC as well as in Bali, Madrid, London, and other places from North Africa to India in the following years.

President Mr. George W. Bush has still 11 months. I hope he will do his best in this regard until the last minute of his time in the White House, like a baseball pitcher on the mound in the 1-0 game with two down but bases fully loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, taking two strikes against the last batter, say, Babe Ruth in the final game of the World Series.

(Have you seen the movies "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Sicko?"

To tell the truth, I haven't yet.

Nonetheless, I hope the movie director Mr. Moore will produce a new one titled, say, "US Religious Revolution."

You may be able to take part in it, though there are many Mafia-girl-like actresses in the United States.

Rather, you might like to play a certain role in a possible movie a Japanese Michael Moore, if any, might produce under the title "ALWAYS - Drug Disaster in San-Choume [the Third District]" or "ALWAYS - Imported Foods Disaster in San-Choume," since the movie "ALWAYS - The Sunset in San-Choume" has been a big hit in Japan.

Have a nice night tonight, too!
[Passez une bonne nuit ce soir!])

Israelite-American US President Yet to Be

(Snowy Shinjyuku, Tokyo)

Israelite-American US President Yet to Be

(Un juif-président des États-Unis d'Amérique est encore loin d'être réalisé)

Now, it is still the morning of Tuesday in Japan; we are yet to hear the outcomes of the Large-Scale Primary Voting in the U.S.

SECTION I: America's Moment of Truth

February 3, 2008

I heard Bill Clinton make a speech which included the hilarious claim that his current vocation is 'post-politics'. The lie to that was given when the former President turned attack dog for his wife. He outraged many liberal commentators and members of his own party by trying to devalue Obama's triumph in South Carolina by likening it to Jesse Jackson's victories there in the Eighties. In other words, he's just another black guy winning black votes, it's down to the colour of his skin and not the quality of his arguments. It was - and it has been seen as such - an attempt to ghettoise Obama as the black candidate he has never wanted to be. The Clintons' dabbling with racial politics caused a tremendous backlash within the ranks of their own party. It spurred Ted Kennedy - who had angry phone conversations with Bill - into his endorsement. It also prompted the Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison, who once dubbed Bill 'the first black President', to back Obama...,,2251474,00.html

However, if Mr. Bill Clinton cannot save the face of his wife, he should not have allowed her to run for the Presidential Race at all, in my very personal view.

SECTION II: "Sen. Joe Lieberman"

February 1st, 2008

The White House Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB), created under the Intelligence Reform and Terrorist Prevention Act of 2004 is history, having gone out of business on Wednesday. I am grateful to the board members’ service over the past three years. Unfortunately, the White House has failed to send Congress any nominees for the stronger replacement board, created in the Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act of 2007.

I am concerned that the lack of transition planning to the new board has created a gap in the oversight needed to respond to the ongoing threat of terrorism. The President should move swiftly to nominate members to the new board so they can get to work protecting the public’s privacy and civil liberties as we work to protect the country against terrorism...

Mr. Joe Lieberman's personality is very easy-to-understand. He must be basically very happy living in the US society where everybody speaks of God more often than Jesus Christ or the Messiah.

SECTION III: "Little Turtle" vs. George Washington

George Washington could not be hired by English military as a regular officer.

George Washington and his fellows wanted the land north and west of the Ohio River.

George Washington and his fellows could not stand the British's reluctance to invade the land north and west of the Ohio River still occupied by Native Americans.

So, just after the winning of the independence war, George Washington sent his generals and soldiers, who must have been rather professionals remained after the war against England, to the Ohio River to wipe out indigenous insurgents, namely "Indians," in order to tackle the true issue which was the key reason for the independence.

However, the Native American hero "Little Turtle" and other warriors twice defeated the expeditionary force.

George Washington must have felt extreme pressure until he received the message that the third expeditionary force at last crushed the "Indian" troops, though this time "Little Turtle" was not in charge of command in chief of Native American coalition troops.

Every subsequent battle between the Native American warriors and the US Army, which continued until the late 19th century, was thus just a second edition of this decisive war between "Little Turtle" and George Washington which however resulted in official recognition of Native American tribes as an entity that has a diplomatic right against the US Government.
* * *

The U.S. will have a female President or an African American President someday, provided she or he is Christian.

But, an Israelite American President may be really difficult to be, though Mr. Lieberman was once a candidate for the Vice President.

But, after the emergence of an Israelite American President, we may have a Native-American U.S. President.

In the 22nd century, US citizens may even change the name of Washington DC to "Little Turtle DC."

But, for the time being, my most adventurous concern is a possibility of an Israelite American becoming a US President, or another possibility of the nation Israel becoming an annexed territory of the United States of America as the 51st state.

(A new business week has started.

New incidents and accidents are waiting for us.

News announcers may report them with a regretful look.

Or, smiling around you will enable you to forget about them all.

Then, you continue to consume your time on this earth for some more moments, minutes, months, and memories of years and decades if not centuries...)

Which is Easier (or More Difficult)?

(Snow and Trains to Tokyo)

Which is Easier [or More Difficult]?

(Quel est le plus facile?)

When asked by a white-shirt-wearing tough Japanese reporter about impressions on Japan during their busy greeting procession to supporters, according to Japan's FUJI TV news show,

Mr. Barack Obama said somehow sternly, "I love Japan"; and

Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton said largely smiling, "Good!"

Mar 2:3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.

Mar 2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

Mar 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

Mar 2:6 But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

Mar 2:7 Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

Mar 2:8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

Mar 2:9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

Reflection on the Davos Forum and Chinese Secret Operation

(North of Tokyo in Winter)

Reflection on the Davos Forum and Chinese Secret Operations

(Réflexion sur le forum de Davos et le chinois opération secrète)

Now it is past the Sunday noon in Japan.

Snow is falling here and there in and around Tokyo.

I planned to take off work on EEE Reporter today, but late last night I watched a cable TV broadcast, a rare occasion for me in these days for some reasons, on a debate in the Davos Forum and felt like writing some even this Sunday.

It is Mr. George Soros' expression that got my attention: "The sixty year credit expansion based on US dollar as a key currency is going to end," or some meaning like that.

It was also impressive that Mr. Lawrence Summers supported, not as a panel but an audience at the front line of the seminary hall, an idea on installing a sheriff to monitor the world monetary system Mr. Soros proposed.

A New Sheriff

Finally, Soros proposed the motion that the financial world needs a new sheriff. Left to their own devices, markets go from "euphoria to despair", he said. Globalization has allowed the US to suck up the savings of the world and consume 6% more than it produces. What the world is now witnessing is the end of a 60-year-old credit system based on the dollar. "I think we are seeing the end of the dollar as the international currency and we need a new sheriff," he said.

But, Nandan M. Nilekani, Executive Co-Chairman, Infosys Technologies, India; Member of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum, dismissed the idea as "impracticable, irrelevant and implausible." He said that the origin of the current woes is essentially domestic and, therefore, it is up to national institutions to resolve them. If existing international institutions are not able "to get their act together" in areas such as trade and the environment, there is little hope for any new financial sheriff. "The solution is certainly not a new sheriff who cannot shoot straight," he said.

From the floor, a participant said there is a need to reform existing institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, to make them more representative. Summers said that he agreed with Soros that the authorities need to do what they have not been doing, but he doubted that this will involve the creation of a new sheriff. "We have a lot of people with sheriff responsibilities but they have been averting their gaze," he said. Another participant suggested that a new international steering committee is needed to bring together the world’s three economic superpowers – the US, the EU and China. Gurria urged better coordination and above all better communication between the financial authorities and the markets.

The vote went 25% to 75% against a new sheriff.

Additionally, another motivation for my writing today is related to the above another participant's comment: "Another participant suggested that a new international steering committee is needed to bring together the world’s three economic superpowers – the US, the EU and China."

This statement implies two things:
(1) Chinese secret agency's activities in the Davos Forum:

The Chinese Communist Party now has a huge budget for their activities to influence prominent people in the world, including Japan and the U.S.

You have to remember that China also used a huge fund to prevent Japan from becoming a permanent member of the Security Council of the United Nations a couple of years ago.

Chinese secret agencies are still actively involved in acquiring people who would act and speak in accordance with the strategic plan of the Chinese Communist Party.

So, in Davos, some participants spoke, as if so influenced or brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party, in order to harm reputation of Japan, a responsible contributor to the global financial stability in decades, and misleadingly praise China, an irresponsible new comer to the global financial stage without respecting democracy, freedom, human rights, and the Holy Books including the Gospel.

(2) The lack of understanding the true state and structure of Chinese economy:

Most of participants in the Davos Forum did not look like having read a report issued by Congressional Research Service:

[Table 1: China’s Foreign Exchange Reserves and Overall Current Account Surplus: 1995-2006

1995.......US$ 75.4 billion
1996..........107.0 billion
1997..........142.8 billion
1998..........149.2 billion
1999..........157.7 billion
2000.........168.3 billion
2001.........215.6 billion
2002.........291.1 billion
2003.........403.3 billion
2004.........609.9 billion
2005.........818.9 billion
2006........1066.3 billion]

(In 2007, the ranking of countries with larger foreign exchange reserves:
China...1528 bn
Japan.... 973 bn
EU......... 501 bn
Russia....478 bn
India.......288 bn
Taiwan....270 bn
South Korea..262 bn)

Chinese data indicate that the share of China’s exports produced by foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) in China has risen dramatically over the past several years.

As indicated in Table 5, in 1986, only 1.9% of China’s exports were from FIEs, but by 1996, this share had risen to 40.7%, and by 2006 it had risen to 58.2%.

A similar pattern can be seen with imports: FIEs accounted for only 5.6% of China’s imports in 1986, rose to 47.9% by 2000, and to 59.7% in 2006.

FIEs import raw materials and components (much of which come from East Asia) for assembly in China, after which point, much of the final product is exported. As a result, China tends to run trade deficits with East Asian countries and trade surpluses with countries with high consumer demand, such as the United States.

These factors have led many analysts to conclude that much of the increase in U.S. imports (and hence, the rising U.S. trade deficit with China) is a result of China becoming a production platform for many foreign companies (who are the largest beneficiaries from this arrangement), rather than unfair Chinese trade policies.

The rising importance of FIEs may represent a fundamental change in trade between China and the United States that could affect the bilateral trade deficit independently of the exchange rate regime.


In sum, Chine is not yet in a position to guide the world, but China must continue to be monitored, supervised, and led by stakeholders such as Japan and the United States.

I once wrote that you should not trust in rich people gathering at the Davos Forum.

Indeed, some participants looked like acting for further boosting dangerous credit and credibility given to China for China's selfish interest in the coming era of limited natural resources.

Truly, the Chinese Communist Party is trying hard to survive without giving democracy, freedom, and safety to its one billion poor farmers and laborers while leveraging its position in the global economic structure and regime that has been bolstered by Japan peacefully for decades, since Japan has had no intention to politically control the world including China.
* * *

The God has let the French bank's huge loss exposed as a timely warning to the Davos Forum.

If one employee in a bank in Europe could cause a billion dollars loss, what is a merit in such talks in Davos?

Financial security in the world today seems to be supported by an ethical level of workers in the financial sector, in addition to hard-working honest people in various sectors in the world.

But, there must be a big difference between dollars simply accumulated by some Islamic countries and Russia timely selling crude oil, dollars accumulated by China owing to business activities of foreign companies in China and their huge investment, and dollars earned by Japan, Taiwan, Korea, etc. due to hard work of their people in real industries in a tested manner based on their honest research and development activities for decades.

(Still the snow is falling.

Don't catch a cold since when it stops snowing the moisture from snow takes heat away from the body.)

Proverbs 26:1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

Proverbs 31:21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
