A Heap of Trouble


 

I imagine that the heirs of Richard Milhaus Nixon will sleep a tad more soundly tonight. No longer will The Trickster be the standard by which presidential corruption is held up as an example. Donald Trump's lifetime of grift, theft and corruption are coming crashing down on his clueless little head. As I write these words, the chickens have come home to roost with a vengeance that he never - in his wildest and weirdest dreams - could have imagined. In the early evening hours of August 11, 2022, there is no doubt in my mind that Trump will be the first former chief-executive to die in the custody of the federal authorities. We can only pray that he is the last. 

The latest drama began two nights ago when the FBI served a search warrant on The Donald's gold-plated shithouse in Florida, Maril-ago. It seems that Trump had skipped town in January 2021 with a boat-load of extremely classified documents. The MAGA-brained extremists who constitute Trump's most devoted supporters have hit the roof. Steve Bannon has proclaimed that the Biden administration will try to have Trump assassinated; the right-wing SCREAM MACHINE has proclaimed the FBI to be the enemy of the people. In Ohio at 9:15 this morning, some demented little twit with not an ounce of common sense, opened fire on a local FBI field office with a nail gun and an AK-15. After leading the feds on a high speed chase, they were able to take him down.

Aren't these interesting times? Seriously!

This all started  forty-one years ago when the American people stupidly sent a feeble-minded, failed B movie actor to the White House whose mantra was "Government isn't the answer to our problem, government is the problem". It's a general rule of thumb that putting people in charge of government who don't believe in government is not a particularly good idea. Just a thought.

AFTERTHOUGHT, 8/12/22

Stephen Colbert had Joe Biden's press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, on his program last night. She was an excellent guest. Here's a link to catch it on YouTube:

How Karine Jean-Pierre Feels When Her Boss Joe Biden Gets Dragged On Late Night TV - YouTube

I am completely in love with Karine Jean=Pierre. That's typical of me. I'm always falling in love with women who are totally inaccessible. They either live on the other side of the planet, they're lesbian - or they're dead.

Leftists: "Oh no! We can't actually enforce our laws against violent crimes. Those poor, disadvantaged, underrepresented, marginalized criminals need to steal, beat up people, carjack, and kill because of systematic 'fill in the blank'. Oh, and it's 100% Trump's fault because low hanging fruit and our inability to grasp reality."

James, What does your comment have to do with what I wrote?

Poor Anonymous James and Anonymous Vern are pacing nervously, waiting to be told what they’re supposed to think and believe.

In the meantime, here are some facts for them to ignore:

The Wall Street Journal is reporting on the warrant and inventory of what was taken from Mar-a-Lago.

Here is what they list:

One set of docs marked TOP SECRET/SENSITIVE COMPARTMENTED INFORMATION (TS/SCI), the highest level of classification. (Did Trump give nuclear weapons secrets to Putin? If so, he violated the Espionage Act.)
Four sets of docs marked TOP SECRET Three sets of docs marked SECRET.
Three sets of docs marked CONFIDENTIAL .
20 boxes of other items including binders of photos, a handwritten note, info on the president of France, and the clemency order for Roger Stone.
Plus documents that exist that are so sensitive they can’t even BE LISTED on the inventory.

The FBI’s search warrant for Mar-a-Lago specified:

18 USC 2071 — Concealment, removal or mutilation
18 USC 793 — Gathering, transmitting or losing defence information
18 USC 1519 — Destruction, alteration or falsification of records in Federal investigations

Ruh, roh!

Cue:
"But Hillary's emails!"
"But Hunter Biden's laptop!"
"But gas prices!"
"But leftists HATE America!"
"But Black criminals!!!"

Can someone PLEASE give me the links to the 30 million pages of Obama administration’s digitized records to Chicago?

 
At 5:58 PM, Blogger Dave Dubya said...

What about the UNCLASSIFIED Obama documents that were released by the National Archives and are still under their control?

Here's your link:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/08/12/trump-obama-national-archives/

Washington Post reports:

In its statement, NARA said that it obtained “exclusive legal and physical custody” of Obama’s records when he left office in 2017. It said that about 30 million pages of unclassified records were transferred to a NARA facility in the Chicago area and that they continue to be maintained “exclusively by NARA.”

Classified records from Obama are kept in a NARA facility in Washington, the statement said.

“As required by the [Presidential Records Act], former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the Presidential records of his Administration,” the statement said.

I doubt Democrats/Liberals/Progressives are going to like living in the world they’re creating once it’s biting them rather than Trump.

The Conservative National Review completely dismantles Trump’s defense that he declassified EVERYTHING that entered his Florida home, calling it “patently absurd” and creates even MORE questions about his recklessness with Top Secret documents.

Operation Mockingbird at its finest. Satanic NWO on the way & you are clearing the path. U Only see what they want U to see
Do some investigation for a change instead of offering your unsolicited opinions about what is broadcast over&over&ocer again. It’s called a ‘saturation campaign’ look it up👀
