Useless special counsel and obedient lapdog Robert Hur issued his vast, overwritten, 345-page report yesterday, and — this will shock you — he declined to prosecute Joe Biden for doing exactly the same thing Trump is being prosecuted for doing, keeping classified documents after he left office, except worse, because Biden wasn’t even the President at the time. Critically, the President has the power to declassify at will, and as Hur’s report noted, Congressional secrecy statutes don’t even apply to the President.

But they do apply to the vice president.

Trump carefully protected his documents in a video-monitored, Secret Service-protected safe room at Mar-a-Lago, a private club with layers and layers of security. Biden carelessly stacked his documents in some ripped banker’s boxes out in the garage at a house “rented” to his drug-addled son, Hunter, next to a pile of junk. And in other even less-secure places.

Here’s how the Report’s introduction described Biden’s classified documents handling “procedure”:

Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen. These materials included (1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and (2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden's handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods. FBI agents recovered these materials from the garage, offices, and basement den in Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home.

We also expect many jurors to be struck by the place where the Afghanistan documents were ultimately found in Mr. Biden's Delaware home: in a badly damaged box in the garage, near a collapsed dog crate, a dog bed, a Zappos box, an empty bucket, a broken lamp wrapped with duct tape, potting soil, and synthetic firewood.

... They had to split hairs somehow. Team Biden’s challenge was to somehow distinguish between what Biden did and what Trump did, so they can keep prosecuting Trump while letting Biden wander off. They picked possibly the dumbest distinction, that Biden was too stupid, old, and careless to know that what he was doing was wrong.

The FSB and CIA colluded to take the money?

Slavery was abolished in Europe several hundred years ago and was officially abolished in the US in 1865.

Very few countries in the Muslim world have officially abolished slavery and those who did, did it in the late 20th century.

In Mauritania, slavery was officially criminalized as late as 2007.

I am in no way trying to undermine the horrible crime that was the Trans-Atlantic black slave trade.

All I am trying to understand, is why the Arabo-Muslim black slave trade, which lasted much longer, had a much wider scope and killed millions of blacks more than its American counterpart is a taboo and is not taught in the West, be it in America or Europe.

The silence on this horrific historical event is downright criminal.

I well understand that there is the fear of confronting the Muslim world, knowing that the “religion of peace” is usually very violent in its responses, but I do believe that the victims and their descendants need some closure.

There might have been a pittance of money handed out, but only to say it was done.

It's bad enough to hear people tout something was done, when it wasn't done, and it's worse to hear people complain about something that was done when it wasn't done.

There's been no student debt relief, just like William Clinton never balanced the budget.

Billions of dollars is not a "pittance."
The Department of Education said Wednesday that it has approved the cancellation of nearly $5 billion more in federal student loan debt, bringing the total amount of student debt relief provided under the Biden administration to $132 billion for more than 3.6 million borrowers.

5 billion is 5000 million. There's 330 million Americans.

So that $15 per man woman and child.

There's currently 1.77 trillion dollars of student debt. https://www.lendingtree.com/student/student-loan-debt-statistics/ - that's 1,700 billion dollars.

5 / 1,700 = 0.29% debt relief. Probably they didn't just bother to collect interest on it for a month.

Like I said, a pittance. This is grade school math, and NOBODY bothers to do math, they just look "oh big number!"

The next generation are slaves, and Americans are not aware of it.

LOS ANGELES, CA — Mainstream media outlets warned this week that if former President Trump is re-elected, he might indict his political enemies, imprison opposing journalists, and change the voting rules of future elections to favor his party.

"If none of the Democrats' 73 indictments against Trump work, Trump might gain the power to have political opponents indicted," warned MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow. "It's terrifying to think what could happen if a President were to wield the power to bankrupt opponents with bogus charges or intimidate journalists with legal threats. We are talking a danger the likes of which we have never, ever seen."

Other outlets were reportedly quick to also sound the alarm, with CNN running a four-hour segment on how the DOJ must jail Republicans in order to keep Republicans from gaining the power to jail political opponents. CBS News, having recently seized confidential records from a journalist, called for the imprisonment of any journalist who does not write what the government tells them to write. "It's the only way to stop Trump from threatening journalists," explained CBS News President Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews. "We have to bend or break every moral and ethical rule in existence to keep Trump from breaking the rules."
