Re: FBI Raid on Mar-A-Lago

Yep. Also, there are clear markings on classified documents. Part of the process of declassifying a document is removing those markings and placing a declassification stamp on those documents. If those things aren't done the document is still classified. This also leaves out the fact that classified...

Re: FBI Raid on Mar-A-Lago

Apparently there are rumblings that the classified documents in question pertained to nuclear weapons or nuclear war plans. Just off the top of my head, I doubt he was keeping them as a memento. His intention was to use them as either an insurance policy or to sell them to the highest bidder. Which ...

Re: FBI Raid on Mar-A-Lago

I doubt very much that we'll ever know exactly what classified information was in Trump's possession. And if it is, say, about sources and methods used to gather intelligence against somebody who doesn't like us very much, that is a Good Thing.

This is one way to separate out the truly dangerous loons and put them somewhere they can't harm themselves or others.

FBI Raid on Mar-A-Lago

I want to see Trump trying to get away in a golf cart. Kind of like the OJ Ford Bronco chase of so many years ago but even more ridiculous.

Re: The status of Ukraine

From the Institute for the Study of War ( https://www.understandingwar.org/ ): Ukraine is likely seizing the strategic initiative and forcing Russia to reallocate forces and reprioritize efforts in response to Ukrainian counteroffensive operations. Russian forces are increasingly transferring person...

Sure looks like a pretty strong majority of folks in Kansas think that obnoxious big government should butt out of women's health care. Kudos for them.

Re: The status of Ukraine

Mostly correct and all very reasonable sounding.

The Ukrainians might have a big opportunity in the Kherson region in the coming weeks to bag an entire Rushka field army. Which wouldn't do a lot of good for the already poor morale of the Russian army.

Re: Hey folks we're not in a recession

Not only does inflation not equal recession, but under normal conditions you won’t ever have both at the same time. Recession means that aggregate demand is dropping. Inflation means that aggregate supply exceeds aggregate demand. So on the average an economic boom has more inflationary pressure tha...

Re: It's the emails, stupid!

I certainly cannot claim to know all of the facts with respect to Hunter Biden’s laptop. What I do know for certain is that much of what has been published cannot possibly be true. Unless Mr Biden’s MacBook was impossibly ancient, there is not a hard drive In It to be seized or inspected. Media acco...

Re: New Jan 6th Testimony

It seems at least some of the lawyers representing Secret Service agents in this fracas are connected to Trump World. However, given how many lawyers the Orange One has hired over the years, that may or may not mean anything. It does, however, stink.

Well, there are some hard truths in that article but also I think they miss a few key points. I do think we should be vigilant and not fall prey to complacency, but we also need to be realistic.

Re: New Jan 6th Testimony

Just saying. Two big questions with respect to the Secret Service and their lost text messages: More than one Secret Service agent involved in this mess is retaining private legal counsel. Retaining legal counsel for something like this is something you cannot afford on a public salary. Who is payin...
