Journal Archives

It would seem to me they could quickly eliminate 99% of the documents from inspection.

This "Special Master" would only look for any documents that would possibly be first belong only to Trump.

Nearly ALL of what is in these boxes belong to the US Government through the National Archives. This is a 40 plus year old law through the Presidential Records Act. He took what did not belong to him.
So they should be a quick NOPE for any Personal privileged for Trump

ANY Classified documents.
ANY Official White House Documents.
ANY Other official Government documents and communications.

So we are down to: any truly personal individual document that were mixed in with what was above such as his passports or other personal documents.
The if there is any communication with a personal lawyer (and not office of the president lawyers) those should be gone through because even those should be evaluated by someone for a "crime fraud exception".

If the judge had limited her order for a special master to only the second group and released the items obviously belong to the national archives then any "special master" would not have to have "Uber Secret clearances" to even look at the cover sheet.

Trump had as much right to keep stuff from the Whitehouse as he does to take the towels and TV from a hotel room he stayed in. He STOLE these things.

Honest question: Why does the 4th Amendment not give us a right to privacy of our own bodies?

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

This would seem to me that if someone were "secure in their person" against "searches and seizures" it would seem that we have autonomy over our own bodies, male or female. (including reproductive parts).

Also the ninth Amendment seems to be glossed over in this whole "No right to privacy" argument that this bunch of imams that have current control of our Extreme Court. It would seem to me making decisions over out own bodies would be one of the most basic of the not enumerated rights.

Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.


A standard .223 AR-15 round will go through a quarter in steel plate like it was butter.

A friend of mine in the woods has a private shooting range, and uses hanging steel plate targets. Originally used for 9mm pistols he had a sheet of one quarter inch thick steel plate to use as a target. Setup was safe as any hits just deflected down into the ground. Would just paint the surface with a rattle can between uses. The 9mm would leave a small mark on the surface of the steel but that was it.

Then someone brought their AR-15 to try out. The first test shot went through the steel plate like pushing a pencil through a stick of butter. It left a perfectly round hole completely through the steel plate. Well no more using the quarter inch steel for a .223 target.

They did get some special AR500 hardened steel half in thick targets specifically for rifle rounds. The .223 rounds make pock marks in them but do not go through them.

My point is that police know this. Most vests that an officer would wear would stop nearly any handgun round. But a .223 round (or most rifle rounds) would go right through their vest. The military and special ops police use a "plate carrier" vest that have special ceramic or other much heavier armor plates inserted in them that can stop a rifle round. (you can buy them on line for a few hundred bucks.)

There really is no "cover" from a rifle round in most buildings. They would shoot through most walls and doors unless they were made of brick or concrete. Most handguns police use have about 15 round magazines. Common AR magazines are twice that. Just pointing out what the police would be up against when "assaulting" an entrenched subject.

Although pistols are easier to conceal, I have no idea why you have to be 21 to purchase a pistol, but only 18 to buy an AR-15 type rifle.

Republican C.R.T. Can't Remember Truth!

After watching all the stories about the blatant lies from the Republican leaders taped conversations, and MTG massive mind fart on the stand in her legal proceedings they seem to have major memory issues when it comes to the truth in any form.

The sad thing is that for so many of my Trumpista neighbors, it still will not matter as the votes these people back in.

Operator Starsky, of the Ukrainian National Guard

I stumbled across this channel on youtube, and it seems to be the real deal.

His english is probably better than mine, and I have found his take on what is happening interesting. He has had a YT channel for more than a year, and his earlier vids were in Ukranian, mostly about training with the National Guard. A few weeks ago he started publishing in English about the invasion.

So just wanted to put this out there as someone who is actually in Ukraine. He seems to be reporting things as he sees them.

Here is his YT. Would be interesting to hear other opinions.


The Robo Calls have gotten out of hand. I may disconnect my home phone.

I am now getting 10 to 15 Robo Calls per day, every day. I have stopped answering my home phone so I get over half of these calls go to blank answering machine messages.

My phone number is listed with the "Do not call" registry, but I think they use that list to make calls now.

I have had the same phone number for many years, and it is used for some account registrations for stores, banks etc.

The most calls recently come from Home warranty, Auto warranty (my vehicles are 20 years old), Insurance offers, and refinance or other loan offers. Also want me to change my utilities, but I do not have natural gas, and I do have solar panels so I have a near zero electricity bill. But, These fukers are relentless.

They often spoof or fake other local area code phone numbers. I have gotten a few at least real but angry calls from other people because they got similar BS calls and these companies faked my number on caller ID.

It usually takes at least 8 seconds for the robo caller to connect to one of their flimflam specialist, so if you keep saying hello to a blank line you know it is a BS Call.

If I am connected to a human I ask to be added to their do not call list, and they usually just hang up on me. Occasionally I can dial a number to be added to their do not call, but either way within a day they are calling again. This has gotten much worse in the last few months for some reason.

Note that this is a simple basic phone line that does not have call blocking available. Apparently I can add some of this for additional money to the phone provider.

The new internet technology has been great for lower cost long distance, but faking caller ID and these foreign or other scam call centers has got to be taken care of some how.

My cell does not seem to have near this problem but it does have some scam blocking.

Anyone else having this problem?

Question: How is Texas Anti-Abortion law not a violation of HIPPA laws?

Especially this weird civil suit against anyone who helps someone get and abortion.

Women of child bearing age no longer have any medical privacy rights?

The three fired Capitol security officials seem to be full of shit on no intellegence...

They claimed that they had not called in the national guard before hand because they had no intelligence before hand that it was that big of threat. Of course the FBI warning email from the evening before seemed to have disappeared into the either.

BUT their own capitol police intellegence group issued a 12 PAGE warning THREE days before with a hair on fire report.

This does not add up.


How is this not Seditious Conspiracy?

Axios described a 4 hour screaming meeting with Trump in the White house in late December to use the military to seize power.

This sure seems like a conspiracy to overthrow the government and install Trump as president for life.

Link to CNN interview with Axios writer about this

CNN reporter at Trump Screen door to the ass Rally, "House of the Rising Sun" playing

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain
Well, there is a house in New Orleans

They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

Fitting I suppose.
