“Why you fool, it's the educated reader who CAN be gulled. All our difficulty comes with the others. When did you meet a workman who believes the papers? He takes it for granted that they're all propaganda and skips the leading articles. He buys his paper for the football results and the little paragraphs about girls falling out of windows and corpses found in Mayfair flats. He is our problem. We have to recondition him. But the educated public, the people who read the high-brow weeklies, don't need reconditioning. They're all right already. They'll believe anything.”
― C.S. Lewis, That Hideous Strength

It has been clear for a long time that the GOP position is, you can lie and lie and lie about the lies. In the public arena. Can't do it in court under oath. YET !!!! But 6 Fed Society justices can fix that.

But the political party of the GOP who make claim of their superior religious beliefs. Somehow miss that Commandment of their God which says, "shall not bear false witness".

So morally lying in public arena (during campaigns) are their weak moments of being human and sinning? And it is all forgiven?
When they lie and cell others Godless and pint saying they lie and should get no forgiveness or mercy? what is that?

If we are to assume telepathy to be a brain function, none of those documents are declassified.
If a president can change the classification of a document by thinking about it, then the actual president, that would be a Democrat named Joe Biden, could just think all of those documents classified again, along with every sheet of toilet paper in Mar a Lago, after which Fergus could be indicted for actually wiping his ass with classified documents.
These folks aren't very good at thinking, period, but especially thinking ahead.
Spare a thought for the folks in Eastern Canada, who just got thrashed by hurricane Fiona. I know a very nice blogger who lives in Nova Scotia who has just hunkered down with her mother and the cats to ride the storm out.
Hurrah for Blue Gal and the IVF reaction. It was right up there with the time she said that not only would she demand an abortion for her daughter if she were impregnated by a rape, but she would want to rip it out and stomp on it.
That was the passage that got Briana regularly listening to this podcast.
So thank you again for the podcast. We got our boosters last Friday, and since our original shot was J&J, our first booster was Moderna, and this booster was Pfizer, we have had all three flavors. And, having so far avoided covid, I am still wearing my N95 at the grocery store.

First , Can Trump prove he "has an actual thought" of declassifying documents

How does one certify and document a personal mental thought he never shared out loud?

there is no doubt that if it be David Duke or whomever is the current KKK grand wagon dragon. If it be a wealthy man who got his kept mistress pregnant and does not want any (bastard) heir to inheritance to interfere and bring controversy to his family of royal special religious beliefs closer to God than anyone else.

We know they will have exceptions for their abortions.
Just as Cheney *6 deferments ) of Vietnam war, Mitt Romney (5 decrements for the war and Trump with his (5 deferments) that made him a Vietnam war hero because if he did serve, he says he would have become the greatest soldier/ general f all time because again, He "thought it".

Should there be a law to force by severe penalty , that if public figures (politicians) speak out and do not place a disclaimer that you need to check your own facts, if nothing they say is accurately true.
The disclaimer of , you accept what they say at your own risk of being lied to and mislead.

Just a thought. Oops, did I say that outload?

may the force declassify your documents
