It’s pretty apparent that Democrats enjoy investigating President Trump. Similarly, it’s apparent that they haven’t done anything to make people’s lives better. Sen. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are calling on Michael Horowitz to investigate why the sentencing recommendation was reduced for Roger Stone. They’ve implied that President Trump improperly interfered in the matter.

The problem they’ve got is that the DOJ got involved in reducing the recommendation before President Trump criticized Judge Amy Berman-Jackson. It’d be quite the trick for William Barr to reduce the sentence recommendation at President Trump’s behest before President Trump made the request. That doesn’t matter to Sen. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. They just want to convince people that President Trump is a scoundrel who should be impeached again.

Not to be left out is Adam Schiff. He just got humiliated (if that’s possible with pathological dirtbags) through President Trump’s impeachment acquittal but he’s spoiling for another fight:

“I’m struck by the fact that it’s all out in the open. I mean, we will certainly learn about what’s taking place behind the scenes, the sort of clandestine effort to weigh in and help the President’s friends and hurt the President’s enemies,” the California Democrat told CNN’s David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” podcast. “But the fact that this is being done in the open in a way makes it more insidious, because it is normalizing this attack on the independence of our justice system.”

The fact that the prosecutors told DOJ one thing, then did another in front of the judge apparently doesn’t mean anything because Orange Man Bad. Now there’s accusations that one of the jurors was biased. There’s nothing insidious about this. Period. Full stop.

It’s time to get Mr. Schiff a new dictionary. The definition of insidious is “stealthily treacherous or deceitful or operating or proceeding in an inconspicuous or seemingly harmless way but actually with grave effect.” How can President Trump, who has a bajillion Twitter followers, use Twitter and still be inconspicuous or stealthy? That’s right up there with Schiff saying during the impeachment trial that the cover-up is hiding there right in plain sight.

Schumer didn’t have a problem with Democratic Sens. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Pat Leahy of Vermont writing a letter to the Ukraine prosecutor to help the Mueller investigation that was improperly predicated. Before the special counsel was appointed, it was known that Russian collusion didn’t happen. There was Russian interference in the election but the FBI knew that there wasn’t collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Democrats can’t help themselves. If there’s anything in the news about President Trump, Democrats insist that he needs to be investigated. The Democrats’ first instinct is to investigate, not to legislate. What a bunch of sick puppies. That’s why firing Pelosi as Speaker-in-Name-Only is essential. That’s why keeping Sen. Schumer as the minority leader is essential, too. Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff aren’t patriots. They’re money-grubbing conspiracy theorists who don’t have the spine to stand up to the Resist activists.

That’s the new definition of today’s Democrats.

NBC News just made a stunning admission about impeachment when it said “American soap operas are not popular these days. And yet, the Senate trial to remove President Donald Trump from office is currently garnering fewer viewers than the soaps.” This isn’t surprising to most Americans. The Democrats’ partisan impeachment was seen as a travesty by fair-minded people.

Another contributing factor to the terrible ratings is the lack of star power on the House Democrats’ team of impeachment managers. When Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are the ‘star’ prosecutors, people will tune out. Couple that with 3 days of the Democrats repeating the same allegations over and over and over again and you have the makings of something exceptionally boring.

The good news is that this nightmare will finish on Wednesday:

The bad news is that the next round of impeachment is right around the corner:

The only thing that will prevent Democrats from attempting another impeachment is massive amounts of public pressure in the form of telling Pelosi that another round of impeachment will cost her the Speaker’s Gavel. It will require the American people telling Angie Craig and Dean Phillips that they’ll be one-term wonders if they support another round of impeachment. The NRSC and other campaign committees and PACs should spend boatloads of campaign cash into the 30 Trump districts where Democrats currently serve. It’s time to let them know there’s a steep price to pay for ignoring the people’s business while pursuing impeachment.

Let’s highlight the fact that Adam Schiff is a total liar. In March, 2017, he told Chuck Todd that he’d seen evidence “stronger than circumstantial” that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. This fall, he read into the congressional record a mythical conversation between President Trump and President Zelenskiy.

Do Democrats really want to hitch their wagon to Schiff’s star? Or to Jerry Nadler’s star? The Democrats’ other problem is that anyone with firsthand knowledge of anything is likely to be covered by executive privilege. Does Schiff think that he can get away with another impeachment investigation without giving the White House Counsel’s Office access to cross-examining Schiff’s witnesses? Does Schiff think that these vulnerable freshman Democrats will want to vote for starting another impeachment inquiry?

Last time, Speaker Pelosi coerced vulnerable freshmen into voting for initiating the impeachment investigation by holding USMCA over their head. USMCA is now the law of the land. Does anyone seriously think that those freshmen Democrats will willingly vote to end their political careers?

The only way to stop this impeachment charade is by vanquishing 50+ Democrats from the House this November. If Democrats still have gavels, we’ll keep getting one round of impeachment after another. It’s that simple.

Years ago, I coined a phrase about Democrats. In that phrase, I said that “Democrats always do the right thing — when it’s the only option left.” That cliché rang true to me when I saw Jason Lewis’s statement calling on Tina Smith “to do right thing for a change and acquit President Trump.” There’s a better chance of the Devil handing out figure skates in Hell this weekend than there is of Tina Smith doing the right thing.

Don’t mistake what I’m saying. It’s important (and right) for Jason to call Tina Smith out on this. Several times this past week, she’s stood right behind Sen. Schumer at his press conferences. How appropriate for Sen. Schumer’s shill. Sen. Smith is Sen. Schumer’s shill. She’s never voted against Sen. Schumer on anything. Why think that she’ll suddenly do the right thing? That’s as foolish as thinking that you’ll be ok taunting a cobra with quick movements.

It’s just the nature of the beast that Democrats won’t do the right thing. Tina Smith is a creature of the Resistance. She doesn’t dare cross Resistance activists. The Resist Movement activists are absolutists and anarchists. Here’s Jason Lewis’s statement in full:

The question facing Minnesota’s voters is whether they way to waste their vote on a do-nothing placeholder Democrat or whether they’d prefer a get-big-things-done senator with a history of tackling problems while protecting our constitutional rights. I’ve watched Jason Lewis in action. From a policy standpoint, he’s a man of stature while Tina Smith is a lightweight who does as she’s told by Sen. Schumer.

Electing Jason Lewis would mean having a senator who is part of the majority getting important things done. Re-electing Tina Smith means having a senator who will be in the minority for the next term while getting nothing done. Jason Lewis already voted for the Trump-GOP tax cuts that’ve lifted the economy, made the US energy independent while rebuilding the military.

In her time in office, Tina Smith voted against highly qualified judges and justices, voted against energy independence and wasn’t impartial as she claimed:

“Even in the Clinton impeachment, which was a pretty partisan time, the Democrats and the Republicans came together to agree on rules that were bipartisan, nonpartisan, and that is not happening here, which I think is a detriment to the overall fairness of the trial,” Smith said.

It’s obvious that Tina Smith wasn’t impartial before the trial started. She voted for each one of Sen. Schumer’s amendments the first Tuesday night of the impeachment trial. Each of those amendments was designed to force vulnerable Republicans to cast difficult votes.

After that night of voting, there’s no question whether Tina Smith is a partisan hack. That night of voting was about tipping control of the Senate to a Democrat majority and nothing more. That isn’t the definition of “overall fairness.”

On a totally different front, Tina Smith apparently won’t stand with the hard-working people of the Iron Range. Apparently, she’d rather team with Betty McCollum in preventing prosperity on the Iron Range:

Newt Gingrich is one of the best election analysts in modern history. When he starts talking about the potential for wave elections, I listen. That’s what he’s talking about in this article.

One of the first things he mentions is “The liberal media likes to focus on how many House Republicans are retiring. Somehow this is supposed to make Republicans feel defeated and hopeless. In this context, I was startled recently to hear Congresswoman Elise Stefanik say 2020 was going to be the year of the House Republican woman. She went on to assert that there was a historic record being set for Republican women filing to run for the House.”

Speaker Gingrich then gets into candidate recruitment, online fundraising and a host of other things that give Republicans a distinct advantage. Here’s what he said about candidate recruitment:

I checked in with Chairman Tom Emmer at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and found that, if anything, Stefanik had understated the momentum of new recruits. With House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and the leadership team going all out, the House Republicans are setting a remarkably encouraging series of records.

Consider these numbers: The total number of Republicans filed for House seats so far is 928, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) figures – or 188 more than the total at the same time in 2010 (740). The year 2010 matters because it was the last time Nancy Pelosi was kicked out of the majority and Speaker John Boehner led the House GOP to its biggest gain in modern times – with his “where are the jobs” slogan.

Right now, the only accomplishment that the House Democrats can point to is the ratification of President Trump’s USMCA trade agreement. Compared with the things that Republicans can point to during their 2 years in office, the Democrats don’t have much to highlight during the campaign. Then there’s the fundraising portion of this equation:

In the 2018 cycle, this system raised $1.8 billion over the two-year period. When this scale of small-donor involvement was combined with massive donors like Michael Bloomberg (who spent $5 million on ads in the last two weeks in some elections) the Democrats’ money advantage was enormous. This helps explain the Republican House defeats.

The threat posed by the ActBlue system was reinforced in 2019 when it raised more than $1 billion for the Democrats. Republican leaders realized they had to match or exceed the small-dollar system the Democrats had invented. They developed a competitive model called WinRed. The intensity of support for President Trump, combined with growing anger over the Democrats’ investigation and impeachment strategy, has made WinRed a success much faster than anyone expected.

In its first two quarters, WinRed raised $101 million. Its effectiveness is growing rapidly. It raised $31 million in its first quarter of existence and more than doubled that in the second quarter with $70 million (fourth quarter of 2019). In fact, WinRed raised more in its first 190 days than ActBlue raised in its first five years.

The other factor that people haven’t talked about is the fact that most of the competitive seats that Republicans need to flip to return to the majority are seats that President Trump has done well in. It isn’t like Republicans have to flip tons of seats where Democrats traditionally do well in. That, in turn, means that they won’t need to raise as much money as Democrats raise.

House Democrats have to defend why they didn’t get important things done during this Congress. They promised to lower prescription drug prices, fix health care, work on infrastructure and strengthen the economy. They didn’t get any of those things done. They don’t have a list of accomplishments. Democrats have an accomplishment — USMCA. The rest of their time was wasted on impeachment, sour grapes and other waste-of-time investigations. If I were running the NRCC’s messaging, I’d have a single message, which would be “What have you done for me lately?”

It’s time to call Pelosi’s Democrats out. They’re essentially worthless. Democrats spent more time telling us that Iranians really loved Soleimani than they spent in court to compel witnesses that House Democrats said weren’t needed but that Senate Democrats insist are essential. Now Pelosi insists that not calling witnesses that House Democrats didn’t call amounts to a cover-up:

I’d love hearing Pelosi sell that BS to the American people.

Anyone who’s watched the Democrats’ months-long stampede into history books knows that they’re entering the history books for all the wrong reasons. Chairman Nadler is one of the Democrats’ impeachment leaders. During the debate, he said “there can be no serious debate about the evidence at hand. [President Trump] has demonstrated a clear pattern of wrongdoing. We cannot rely on the next election as a remedy for presidential misconduct when the President threatens the very integrity of that election. He has shown us he will continue to put his selfish interests above the good of the country. We must act without delay.”

That statement has more indefensible statements in it than Jim Comey’s FISA warrant applications. First, the only firsthand proof in the record, which is the only type of proof admitted in court (with some exceptions), is exculpatory evidence. Let’s not forget that Nadler tried spinning away President Zelenskiy’s statement that he didn’t feel any pressure from President Trump was because President Trump pressured him into saying that. Let’s remember, too, that he said this with a straight face and without a bit of evidence to support that allegation.

Next, Nadler’s statement that President Trump has “demonstrated a clear pattern of wrongdoing” is spin for ‘I don’t like how he’s doing things.’ Differences of opinion aren’t impeachable offenses.

Then there’s Speaker Pelosi’s schtick:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is opening the debate on the floor of the House and says she does so “solemnly and sadly. If we do not act now, we would be derelict in our duties,” she says, adding that Trump “gave us no choice.” She says it is a matter of fact that Trump is an “ongoing threat to our national security and the integrity of our elections.”

Pelosi’s schtick might’ve been believable if not for this:

Pelosi is given a round of applause from her benches as she finishes her remarks. She is wearing black, reportedly to communicate the solemnity of the day.

Nothing communicates solemnity like a lengthy round of applause like this:

After the vote is taken, the pundits will assess the damage done by this impeachment. During the process, Adam Schiff fabricated President Trump’s statements to President Zelenskiy. Jerry Nadler shut down the impeachment hearings without allowing a single GOP-called witness. Adam Schiff called Marie Yovanovitch to testify even though she’d been fired 3 months before the Trump-Zelenskiy phone call that triggered impeachment.

Increasingly, independents are siding with fair-minded Republicans more than they’re siding with Democrats. Voters won’t forget this impeachment, nor will they forget the fact that these Do-Nothing Democrats don’t have a single signature accomplishment to brag about. Doug Collins has it right in this article:

“They trashed rules in the House, they’ve trashed decorum, they’ve trashed everything. Because they had one purpose and one purpose only: to undo the election of 2016 when their own candidate failed miserably and their own policies have never been accepted by the American people,” he explained.

Democrats only have themselves to blame for this disgrace.

Last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered this speech on the Senate floor. In his speech, as he’s done frequently, Sen. McConnell highlighted Speaker Pelosi’s obsession with impeachment:

For weeks now, Republicans have been asking Democrats to take off their impeachment blinders and let Congress legislate for the American people. We’ve argued that American families deserve better than this partisan paralysis where Democrats obsess over impeachment and obstruct everything else.

This very morning, Speaker Pelosi gave a speech on national television to push forward her rushed and partisan impeachment process. Not one word on the outstanding legislation the American people actually need. Nothing on the USMCA, or the NDAA, or funding for our armed forces. It’s all impeachment, all the time.

Only in this town, only in Washington D.C., does anybody think it’s okay for our armed forces to go unfunded… and a major trade deal to go unpassed… because Democrats are too busy hosting a panel of law professors to criticize President Trump on television.

Here’s the video of Sen. McConnell’s speech:

Why haven’t Democrats from the Problem Solvers Caucus publicly push passage of USMCA? These Democrats want to be known as solving problems. Thus far, it’s more accurate to call them Do-Nothing Democrats than Problem Solvers. They’re a bunch of wimps who haven’t gotten a thing done. If these so-called moderates won’t stand up to Queen Nancy, then they’re essentially worthless. We The People need doers, not talkers.

The good news is that the policies implemented by President Trump and Republicans are paying dividends to the people President Trump promised to never forget. It can’t be happy times for Mike Bloomberg. This article from Bloomberg BusinessWeek contains good news for the American people:

The economy appears to be in a much better place than experts feared: good news for an incumbent president heading into an election year. In its analysis of the November jobs report, Bloomberg Economics lowered its projection of 2020 year-end unemployment to an astounding 3.3 percent and forecast “U.S. Election Day Unemployment to Be Lowest Since ’52.”

Back when we last had unified GOP government, important things actually got done. Republicans didn’t fix the mess that Democrats created with health care but they got rid of tons of counterproductive anti-energy industry regulations.

The Trump administration’s deregulation policies have made the US energy dominant. We’re now exporting more oil than we’re importing. Further on the regulations front, President Trump issued this executive order, which says in part:

Section 1. Purpose. It is the policy of the executive branch to be prudent and financially responsible in the expenditure of funds, from both public and private sources. In addition to the management of the direct expenditure of taxpayer dollars through the budgeting process, it is essential to manage the costs associated with the governmental imposition of private expenditures required to comply with Federal regulations. Toward that end, it is important that for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process.

The latest report reported that 7.5 old regulations were eliminated for each new regulation created. That’s the biggest reason why the economy is strong and getting better. It’s time to get rid of this Do-Nothing Democrats majority in the House so we can return to doing the people’s business.

Something that’s gotten lost in the impeachment fight is how Speaker Pelosi was intimidated into impeachment by AOC + 3 versus how she’s essentially ignored ratifying the USMCA treaty that the Problem Solvers Caucus. Speaker Pelosi knows that she can intimidate the so-called moderates. That’s what she’s done the last 15 years. When they were debating Cap & Trade, she needed Collin Peterson to vote for it. At the time, I wrote that Collin was a Blue Dog Democrat … until Nancy needed his vote.

Pelosi can’t intimidate AOC + 3. In fact, they’ve intimidated Pelosi into supporting impeachment. Pelosi’s majority isn’t possible without moderates. Still, there’s no enthusiasm without AOC + 3. It’s a Catch 22 situation.

What isn’t a difficult thing to figure out is what will happen to Democrats running for re-election. Appearing on Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo, Kevin McCarthy said “Well, Nancy Pelosi, if you’re one of those 31 Democrats running for re-election — well, you’re a little afraid with hearing what Nancy Pelosi just did putting out this timeline for articles of impeachment. She just gave up your job. If you look at some new polling from American Action Network in these Democrat districts, 54% of their district is more likely to vote against you if you vote for impeachment — and they already have.”

That’s the news from the 31 districts that we’ve heard about since seemingly forever ago. If 54% of voters are voting against you if you vote for impeachment, that isn’t good news for those Democrats who Nancy Pelosi is forcing into voting for impeachment. Couple that information with the increasingly prevalent opinion that Democrats should be called the Do-Nothing Democrats and you’ve got the starting foundation for a wave election that will sweep Ms. Pelosi out of office.

This won’t end well for Democrats because people across the nation have turned on them. Democrats have peddled one impeachment story after another for the past 3 years. First, they peddled the Russia collusion story. When that went bust, they shifted to obstruction of justice. When that wasn’t taken seriously, they pounced on the whistleblower’s report. When that wasn’t taken seriously, Democrats impaneled some focus groups to come up with words that provided greater impact. That’s when they settled for bribery.

Of course, the story hasn’t changed. The transcript is still the transcript. The witnesses against President Trump are limited. It isn’t surprising that people have tuned out. The boy cried wolf a dozen times too often. The boy’s credibility doesn’t exist anymore. (In this story, the boy is played by Adam Schiff. Go figure, right?)

I wrote awhile back that anyone that thought that Democrats would stop investigating President Trump after he’s acquitted by the Senate were kidding themselves. This article is proof that I was right. The only way to stop the Do-Nothing Democrats is to defeat 40-50 of them next November. The only way to get important legislative and judicial things done is to increase the GOP majority in the Senate. But I digress.

“If the Senate doesn’t vote to convict Trump, or tries to monkey w his trial, he could of course be retried in the new Senate should he win re-election,” tweeted Neal Katyal, who served as acting solicitor general under former President Obama. “Double jeopardy protections do not apply,” he added, referring to the principle that suspects can’t be tried twice for the same crime. “And Senators voting on impeachment in the next months know this.”

That’s a blueprint for nonstop Democrat-led investigations. It’s also a threat against the GOP majority in the Senate. Katyal implies that Republicans voting not to convict will be targeted.

The important part that Katyal isn’t talking about is that Democrats haven’t found a crime, an impeachable offense or any evidence of wrong-doing after 3 years of investigations. These rabies-infested Democrats hate President Trump. They’ve literally wanted to impeach him since before President Trump’s inauguration. That isn’t hyperbole. That’s historical fact.

The 2020 House election comes down to something simple. Do the American people want a Congress that puts America’s priorities first or do the American people want a Congress that’s all-investigations-all-the-time? Unlike the Democrats’ impeachment investigations, there’s proof of what the Democrats’ intentions are. The Democrats’ priorities are investigate, investigate and investigate.

Speaker Pelosi has yipped a little about the bills sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk. What Ms. Pelosi won’t talk about is the list of high priority items sitting on her desk. Pelosi won’t talk about ratifying USMCA except to momentarily say that they’re “working their way to yes.” She hasn’t said that they’ve been on that road since last year or that they expected it to be easy.

This week, Ms. Pelosi told a CNN audience that “civilization as we know it today is at stake”:

Watch Ms. Pelosi’s gyrations as she’s speaking. She doesn’t look like a healthy person. I don’t say this to mock her. I say it because it looks like she’s out of control.

Republicans, it’s imperative to retake the House majority. This investigative abuse can’t continue. The president needs to have time to do his job. Democrats have done their utmost to deprive him of that ability. Thank God we’ve had a president powerful enough to power his way through the Democrats’ BS.

Democrats will keep pushing for investigations even if the Republicans have the majority. The good news is that, this time, Bill Barr won’t wimp out and appoint a special counsel. The better news is that Congress would start doing its job. The best news is that the economy will take off the minute USMCA is ratified and the US-China Phase One deal is reached.

The opening paragraph from Speaker Pelosi’s statement on the November jobs report indicts the Speaker. Here’s what she said:

Despite some encouraging numbers, the November jobs report offers little solace to the farmers and hard-working families who are struggling to stay above water with the costs of living rising and uncertainty surging.

If she’s so worried about “farmers and hard-working families”, why hasn’t she brought USMCA up for a vote yet. For over a year, Ms. Pelosi has said that a) USMCA would be easy to pass and b) she was working her way to yes on ratifying it. Simply put, she’s failed farmers. Ms. Pelosi’s Do-Nothing Democrats have been more interested in impeaching a president who has created 7,000,000 jobs since taking office less than 3 years ago.

Ms. Pelosi’s Do-Nothing Democrats unanimously voted against the Trump-GOP tax cuts that have lit a fire under this economy. These Do-Nothing Democrats voted against eliminating the Obama administration’s regulations that would’ve killed the fossil fuel industry. In short, Pelosi’s Do-Nothing Democrats have stood in the way of pretty much every Trump administration plan that’s produced this prolific economy.

Thus far, the Trump administration’s record includes the lowest unemployment rate in half a century, the lowest black unemployment rate and the lowest Hispanic unemployment rate ever, the lowest unemployment rate for women since WWII, rising wages, improving workforce participation rate and soaring consumer confidence. That’s what Pelosi’s Do-Nothing Democrats voted against.

Getting lectured by Ms. Pelosi about “struggling” farmers and manufacturers is insulting. Ms. Pelosi’s focus on impeachment has prevented her from reaching yes on USMCA. She can complain all she wants about the 275 bills waiting for Senate action but that’s bad-faith whining. Why should we trust a caucus of Do-Nothing Democrat Socialists who voted against the policies that built this fantastic economy? This sums things up perfectly:

“What a contrast? A great economy, terrible politics.”

Pelosi’s Do-Nothing Democrats haven’t helped with anything. They’ve focused on impeachment, not the economy. They haven’t lifted a finger to close the asylum loopholes or the immigration system. The 275 bills are meaningless. It’s time for Democrats to focus on what’s important instead of focusing on appeasing their special interest base.

When Speaker Pelosi announced on Thursday morning that she was instructing Chairman Nadler’s committee to start drafting articles of impeachment, what she was really doing was admitting that Democrats would lose their House majority Next November. What I’ve been convinced of is that Republicans would retake the House barring a massive voter fraud effort by Democrats. Forget the 31 Democrats representing districts that Trump won in 2016. The majority of those districts will be flipped by Republicans next November. Depending on turnout and enthusiasm, it’s possible that the vast majority of those districts will get flipped by Republicans.

The next set of targets for flipping are seats where President Trump came close to winning but fell just a little short. MN-2 and MN-3 fit into that category perfectly, where Angie Craig and Dean Phillips currently hold the seats. Both are seats that Republicans have held literally for decades. It’ll take a bit of a fight but those seats should return to the GOP fold.

Thanks to the RNC’s fundraising haul, the GOP is hosting massive voter registration drives at Trump rallies across the nation. A significant number of those rallies aren’t hosted in districts that are GOP-friendly — yet. Depending on the national mood next fall, these districts might constitute the third set of districts targeted.

There’s no question that Pelosi wants to maintain her majority. She knows, though, that they’ve focused too much attention on impeachment and not nearly enough attention on fulfilling policy promises. There’s no getting rid of the Do-Nothing Democrats label. Resist Movement Democrats dug a hole with their my-way-or-the-highway attitude. That isn’t where the nation is.

If Democrats don’t get rid of that group of Democrats, which they really can’t, they’ll be the minority party for awhile. Pelosi fought the AOC wing. In the end, she had to cave to their pressure. Now, it’ll cost them their gavels.
