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.

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.

If you diet correctly with a sedentary lifestyle, you cannot get obese.
Perhaps, but how many sedentary people diet correctly?

The complex/simple carb topic is completely irrelevant.
That's what Big ProteinTM wants you to think.

Many diets across the globe instead end up looking like 70+% carbs. This even includes generally food-starved nations such as those in Sub-Saharan Africa, where we send lots of food aid in the form of grains and not much else. The thing most absent from diets is usually protein because it's the most expensive component.
Implying that grains can't be good sources of protein.
https://www.myfooddata.com/articles/grains-high-in-protein.php

That wasn't the implication. Look at how many carbs are in the those same grains compared to the percentage of protein. For example, the top one is Kamut. You get 1.4g of fat, 9.8g of protein for every 47.5g of carbs. That means the best grain you have to offer is 81% carbs and only 16.7% protein. This is why grain-heavy diets are a one way ticket to obesity.
Actually, it's a sedentary lifestyle, regardless of diet, that's the one way ticket to obesity.

Please don't confuse complex carbs found in grains with "ultraprocessed" refined sugars.  Complex carbs take longer to break down and are harder to convert to body fat than simple carbs/sugars or the fats that often accompany animal proteins.

Actually Rudy Guliani was a famous lawyer before he represented Trump. He was at least as known as Johnny Cochran. He was known for taking down the mob.

This lady says that he doesn't count because the media doesn't portray him in a good light anymore. The media liked Cochran defending OJ but not Guliani defending Trump. She thinks Trump should be represented by someone the liberal media portrays in a good light, which just shows her ignorance.
Rudy doesn't count because he has enough of his own legal problems to worry about.

Also, Trump already stiffed Rudy on his legal expenses for the election fraud case.

The narrative that monarchs are undemocratic comes, quite frankly, from people who do not understand politics.

The existence of monarchs is undemocratic.
Not always.
