@Region Philbis,

It is curious when you glance at that list whether or not he’ll get a bump in the polls. If nothing else, offing the head of Al Qaeda should get the attention of the masses. Dems really don’t know to make the narrative work on their behalf.

And there you have it.

Biden pulls off historic, unprecedented legislative accomplishments.

You don’t wonder why the media isn’t jumping up and down, going “Oh my gosh do you know what these accomplishments mean to the American people?”

You wonder why the democrats aren’t bragging correctly.

Why don’t people hold the media accountable for better reporting when Biden does something difficult, important, relevant to everyday life?

@snood,
So much about Biden reminds me of L B Johnson, both fairly right wing Democrats who passed huge social legislation acts.

Johnson wasn't popular enough to run for a second term.

This perverted sense of priorities is part of what created the myth of Trump as a talented, strategic genius. The media magnified any and every utterance the wretched dolt didn’t screw up, like it made him Churchill or something.

THE. MEDIA. DRIVES. THE. NARRATIVE.

In the best case scenario, the job of politicians is to create and sponsor policies and legislation that improves the lives of the people they represent.

When they can actually pull that off, they’ve done their jobs.

Since it isn’t that common of an occurrence, we should be able to read and hear and see reports of it in the news.

Instead, we tell the politicians that they need to add Hypeman to their job description and sell us on the job they did.

It’s bizarre and stupid and counterproductive.

CNN just ended their piece about Biden’s fantastic month with, “So, the ratings are less lousy! Ha ha!”

FBI search of Mar-a-Lago raises critical national security questions: Sources

Administration sources familiar with the investigation tell ABC News the amount and the sensitivity of confidential, secret and top-secret documents allegedly discovered in the Mar-a-Lago search raise critical national security questions that must be urgently addressed.

Those officials say law enforcement and security officials must now try to track the chain of custody of the material and try to determine if any of the material was compromised.

Officials acknowledged these critical questions need to be addressed because the material, in theory, would be of great value to foreign adversaries and even allies. Interviews with Trump administration officials are anticipated and authorities may even check for fingerprints to see if that provides insight into who had access.

The FBI warrant and inventory allege that 11 sets of sensitive information were recovered during the Mar-a-Lago search -- including confidential, secret and top-secret documents. There was even top-secret, sensitive compartmented information (SCI) material. This classification of materials sometimes involves nuclear secrets and terrorism operations based on a Director of National Intelligence (DNI) overview of security protocols, which ABC News has reviewed.

The top-secret SCI documents are classified as national intelligence and involve intel "concerning or derived from intelligence sources," according to a (DNI) document reviewed for this reporting. This material may come from allies, spying, eavesdropping or informants.

Top-secret SCI should only be handled under the strictest of conditions in secure-designated locations. Such locations are supposed to be impervious to eavesdropping and no electronic devices are allowed. Only a select few are ever allowed to view SCI -- for example, a "need to know appropriately cleared recipient."

Why the concern? U.S. officials know such sensitive documents are targeted by enemy nations and other adversaries who are constantly attempting espionage and eavesdropping activities here in the U.S.

Loss of information classified as confidential would "damage" national security -- loss of secret documents would cause "serious damage" to national security and the compromise of top-secret material creates the potential for "exceptionally grave damage to the national security," according to Executive Order No. 13526 signed by then-President Barack Obama in 2009.

Among the critical questions in the wake of the Mar-a-Lago raid are how were critical documents stored at the White House, and how was it that so many boxes of such highly classified material could be removed in the first place; who exactly was involved in the authorization to remove the material and who removed the material; how was the material transported to Mar-a-Lago -- by plane, by truck -- and who had access to it during transport. Top-secret material must have specifically authorized transport, may not be sent via U.S. mail and may only be transmitted by authorized government courier service. Other critical questions include: was the material stored in Mar-a-Lago, who had access to it and was it under constant security camera surveillance; and what were the security measures and protocols.

The Presidential Records Act establishes that presidential records automatically transfer into the legal custody of the archivist as soon as the president leaves office.

One of my biggest worries? How do we know none of the documents were copied or photographed?

Yeah, about that...

Last Monday, the Biden Justice Department crossed a red line by ordering an unprecedented, unnecessary, and unlawful FBI raid of Trump's home and offices in Mar-a-Lago. The purported purpose of the highly controversial home raid with a brigade of 30 FBI agents—a raid Attorney General Merrick Garland admitted he personally ordered after his aides initially denied it—is related to 15 to 25 boxes of presidential records, some of which bureaucrats at the National Archives claim are classified and which Trump took to Mar-a-Lago when he left the White House over 18 months ago.

All presidents take mementos and other records when they leave office. They don't pack their own boxes. The National Archives takes the position that almost everything is a "presidential record." And the federal government, in general, over-classifies almost everything.

Even if Trump took classified records, that isn't a crime. The president has the inherent constitutional power to declassify any record he wants, in any manner he wants, regardless of any otherwise-pertinent statute or regulation that applies to everyone else. The president does not need to obtain Congress' or a bureaucrat's permission—or jump through their regulatory or statutory hoops—to declassify anything. The Supreme Court reaffirmed this in the 1988 case, Department of the Navy v. Egan : "The President, after all, is the 'Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States.' U.S. Const., Art. II, § 2. His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security...flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant."


So this entire search, from start to finish, was basically unconstitutional. The president has the right to have any classified documents that he wants.

Meanwhile, the people who searched him totally abused their power.

@bulmabriefs144,
Perhaps you really only go to university for five years just to learn how to lie in statistics and data analysis.

So, again, your data as a not lying expert are ...?

Trump had all that stuff for a year and a half. That was already plenty of time to sell and trade as much of it as he wanted to. So whether there are remaining copies is kind of moot.

Knowing the out-of-control ego of this jerk-off, Trump, he probably just wanted to have the documents so that he could brag that he had them. The notion of giving or selling them to an enemy of ours seems more remote than, "He wanted to flash them from time to time to seem to be a big shot."

@Frank Apisa,
Whether he sold them or not, those documents were accessible to anyone who visited Maralago. Whether he sold it or just bragged about it, that’s classified and secret info possibly going to people who could threaten or harm the country.
