Private institutions can have government-appointed board members. It does not make them government agencies.

Legal cases involving the Federal Reserve Banks have concluded that they are "private", but can be held or deemed as "governmental" depending on the particular law at issue.

So Rushy IS mentally challenged...TY
No, it just means that you are both half-right.

I wonder how the EU and Germany is handling this inflation, no gas, no wheat, no yobs, no food.

They could have weathered all this strife if they just wouldn't have listened. Bad Gold, Don't buy to protect your fam.
What will gold buy you if there is nothing for sale?

Hmm...  Maybe Poland should hold a totally legitimate referendum to annex the rest of Ukraine, that way any further attacks by Russia on Polish territory would trigger a response by the rest of NATO.

Okay, the next part of the discussion is how you obtain it.

They are not giving it away, to my knowledge.
How does one obtain anything that is not given away?

If Trump declassified them by thinking about it, I'm sure Biden has been keeping up to speed with the case, and has thought about re-classifying them all already.

So they are all classified again now. Prove me wrong.
It doesn't really matter if the documents are classified or declassified.  What matters is that those documents are still government property that a former president has no right to possess.
Yes.  That's already established.  But we're hoping he digs himself an even deeper grave.
The fraud charges that NY AG just filed should be plenty deep enough.

Ah but there's a counter for that.  Trump simply wills it to be classified the moment anyone does a foia request.  And immediately after wills it back to be unclassified.
Two problems with that.  One: Trump lost that magic power the instant Biden was sworn in.  Two: some of the charges being investigated don't depend on those documents being classified.

Ah.  Some clarity on the matter.  Trump can declassify documents just by thinking about it and this ability transcends space and time.

I wonder if he can also classify documents just by thinking about them...
He doesn't need to let anyone know that he thought about declassifying documents either.  After all, what business is it of anyone else if he thinks about declassifying a document?

Bro, I own a dictionary.
Then use it to look up "elective monarchy".

Holing on.  I'm looking. It up.

The first few hits just showed the definition of 'contradiction'.
That's odd.  Perhaps your internet is broken because when I looked it up, this was my first hit:
"An elective monarchy is a monarchy ruled by an elected monarch, in contrast to a hereditary monarchy in which the office is automatically passed down as a family inheritance. The manner of election, the nature of candidate qualifications, and the electors vary from case to case."


Went to wiktionary. I see one exmale about 1400 years ago.  I assume this had something to do with a dragon and a lady of the lake.
Interesting.  I went to Wikipedia and found a fairly long list of examples, none which mentioned dragons or lakes.

Ok I can't tell...

Flat Earth Investigations / Re: The Blatant Lies of National Geographic

I have no idea why any of you want to claim anyone here has written or claimed seas are flat. Seas are well noted for possessing waves and swells, frequently exceeding heights of 100 feet.
Possibly for the same reason that some people here want to claim that the earth is flat despite the fact that land is well noted for possessing mountains and canyons frequently exceeding heights and depths of thousands of feet.
