    You're a leftist, it's inherent in your philosophy that you must catagorize all people based on their classification with the stated goal of protecting them while in reality what you do is marginalize their individual needs for the most good for the most. Freedom and personal developement withers in that atmosphere.

    I'm sorry that your freedumb is withered.

    So if you hate Trump you get a pass on judging people according to the color of their skin? Your statement implies that people of races other than white should stay out of the north because they can't hack the cold. Perhaps you should tend to that lumber in your eye.

    That's a very creative interpretation of what I said. Bravo.

    I had a 1986 Kenmore drier for 19 years. I bought it used in 99. I cleaned out the lint a few times and replaced the belt once. I learned it was a 1986 when I had to google the part number for a new knob. I gave it to my brother in 2018 when I moved. He used it for about a year and then he said it died. I bet it's an easy fix, but it's 2500 miles away now and he can't fix anything.


    As for suggestions, I think your course of action is obvious. Buy some old Whirlpools or Kenmores and fix them. That's how you get good quality repairable appliances.

    • The special master in the Mar-a-Lago case has asked Trump's lawyers to back up some of his claims.
    • CNN's legal analyst saw this as a test of whether they were prepared to lie for him in court.
    • Lying in court, unlike in the media, is a punishable offense, noted Elie Honig, the analyst.

    Raymond Dearie, the special master reviewing government records the FBI retrieved from Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, is putting the former president's defense to test, a CNN legal analyst said.


    In court hearings this week, Dearie has challenged Trump's attorneys to present evidence to support two of Trump's key claims: that he declassified the documents kept at Mar-a-Lago, and that the FBI planted evidence there.

    Though Trump has repeatedly made those assertions in public, his lawyers have steered clear of repeating it in court, where arguments are more closely scrutinized.


    Trump's lawyers have argued that defending his declassification claims at this stage could damage their defense in a potential trial, drawing an unimpressed response from Dearie.


    In an appearance on CNN Thursday, legal analyst Elie Honig, a former federal prosecutor, said that Dearie was seeking to expose Trump's falsehoods.


    "The power of our courts is they have a way of bringing out truth. Perhaps a person can get away with fudging the truth in their public statements, in the media, in their private life, in their business. But when you step into a court, ultimately, the judge or the jury will say, fine, that's your allegation, now prove it," said Honig.


    "And you can see the tension in Donald Trump's legal team because they will not say the things in court about declassification and planting that he is saying because lawyers have an ethical obligation."


    "You cannot make a false statement to a court. You can argue aggressively for your client, you could try to poke holes in what the other side is doing, but you cannot lie. This is really a test for Donald Trump."


    Trump's legal team spent weeks persuading federal court judge Aileen Cannon to appoint a special master to review the documents, a move that stalled the FBI's investigation and which the Department of Justice opposed.


    But Dearie's appointment appears to have backfired, some analysts say, in light of his tough handling of the Trump team's defense.


    The special master has until November 30 to complete the review of the documents, and will hand back to Trump any that are shielded under executive privilege rules.


    The DOJ this week won an appeal to regain access to the classified documents, which Cannon had blocked pending Dearie's review.

    It's funny how you tards keep arguing that mean old Joe Brandon can legally do whateverthehell he wants. Biden can magically declassify documents by thinking about it. Biden can take an keep any documents he wants and show them to whomever he wants. Biden can overturn the results of any election if he doesn't like it. Biden can legally obstruct justice. According to you dipshits, Biden is the king of Amurica. Tinyhands was dumb enough to abdicate the throne, but maybe Brandon won't be. He'll just stay in office until he croaks in a few years, using the justifications that you tards 100% support.

    Those god damn Draft Dodging Cowards. If they were good patriotic Russians they would be lining up to fight for freedumb.

    Trump’s latest defense is the joke that keeps on giving

    Who knew all it took to declassify documents was the blink of an eye?!

    On Wednesday night, Donald Trump workshopped his latest excuse for allegedly illegally moving all those top secret docs to Mar-a-Lago, and we’re going to call this one the Barbra Eden defense.

    Fresh off his latest legal defeat — earlier in the day a three-judge panel ruled that the FBI may use the documents in its ongoing criminal investigation — Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that as president, he could declassify things just by “thinking about it.”

    giphy-1.gif

    “You have said on Truth Social, a number of times, you did declassify,” Hannity said.

    “I did declassify,” Trump responded.

    “What was your process to declassify?” Hannity asked, to which Trump said, “There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it. You know, there’s different people, say different things.”

    “If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘it’s declassified’ — even by thinking about it.”

    It’s as simple as that!

    Regardless, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the, “declassification argument is a red herring because declassifying an official document would not change its content or render it personal.”

    Still, it’s made for some good responses:

    Meanwhile, Trump is also defending himself against other allegations of fraud related to shady real estate dealings, and we’re guessing those can’t be wished away, either.

    One of the more bizarro aspects of Donald Trump's paper caper is all the back-and-forth around whether Trump magically declassified the documents using his extremely powerful brain. This is silly, but it doesn't really matter: The nuclear material he was hoarding in his basement was still the same nuclear material—and still potentially dangerous—even if he declared it declassified. If one of the many sketchy characters wandering the Mar-a-Lago grounds seemingly at all times got hold of it, they would not put it back on the basis it was no longer interesting because it had been declassified. It's the same document! That he may have been keeping in an unlocked storage room! This is insane!

    Again, there is zero reason to believe anything Trump says at any time, and he has provided zero evidence for his claim that he declassified the documents. But these declassification questions are important to the legal beagles litigating Trump's attempt to drag all this out by securing a special master. He did so earlier this month courtesy of Judge Aileen Cannon, who was confirmed in that magical period between when Trump lost the election and when he tried to overthrow the government to stay in power. But on Wednesday, a panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals shredded her cockamamie decision in Trump's favor.

    The three judges—two appointed by Trump, one by Barack Obama—nixed Cannon's ruling that the Justice Department could not access the classified documents they fished out of Mar-a-Lago until they are reviewed by the special master. In the process, they got to the heart of the matter.

    "For our part," the panel wrote, "we cannot discern why Plaintiff would have an individual interest in or need for any of the one-hundred documents with classification markings."

    The court is speaking in a legalese context here ("interest" has a specific meaning) but this is the question we should all just ask over and over: Why did he have these goddamned documents? That's what the Sky News interviewer asked Jared Kushner over and over again until he crumpled. Luckily, Trump just did a TV interview of his own with Sean Hannity last night and got to blabbering:

    Sure, they raided your house looking for Hillary's emails. But there was a nice little tidbit there upfront: "Because you're sending it to Mar-a-Lago or to wherever you're...sending it." Where else might you be sending the documents, sir?

    Maybe it's just a manner of speech. But you get the feeling that the interest Donald Trump continues to have in these documents is not something the country will enjoy discerning at all.

    Long lines of traffic seen at some of Russia's land borders

    Social media video from Russia's land borders with several countries shows long lines of traffic trying to leave the country on the day after President Vladimir Putin announced a "partial mobilization."

    There were queues at border crossings into Kazakhstan, Georgia and Mongolia. One video showed dozens of vehicles lining up at the Zemo Larsi/Verkhny Lars checkpoint on the Georgia-Russia border overnight Wednesday. That line appears to have grown longer Thursday. One video showed a long queue stretching into the mountains behind the crossing, with a man commenting that it was five to six kilometers long.

    Another posted Thursday showed long lines at the Khaykhta crossing into Mongolia.

    One man spoke over video recorded at the Troitsk crossing into Kazakhstan, where dozens of cars were lined up Thursday morning. "This is Troitsk, queues of trucks and passenger vehicles ... you can't see the start or the end of this queue ... everyone, everyone is fleeing Russia, all sorts."

    A senior Kazakh official, Maulen Ashimbaev, had said Kazakhstan could not restrict the entry of Russian citizens into the country, Russian state news agency RIA Novosti reported earlier Thursday. But Ashimbaev, the speaker of the upper house of the Kazakh parliament, said that in order to obtain a residence permit, applicants must have a set of documents that comply with the law.

    It is difficult to compare the current flow of traffic to the average in the absence of official data.

    Flights from Russia to countries that do not require visas continue to be very busy and frequently sold out. A search on the Aviasales website showed there were no seats available on Moscow-Istanbul one-way economy flights until Sunday — with the lowest price almost $2,900.

    Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov on Thursday dismissed reports of airports crowded with people trying to leave Russia following the announcement, calling it "exaggeration" and "fake news."



    From a lifetime of building hot rods and being around em... I got to say... Get the best example you can afford to start with. Most of the time someone will have spent $10k on something and it will go for half that. Something that you get for 'free' or cheap? will cost thousands of dollars on stuff just to get it rolling. When everything is rusty or worn out? where do you start?


    lazs

    Yeah, this is why the truck is a beater. It's too far gone. I'm not interested in spending the time and money to fix up a hotrod anyway. It will make a great firewood truck and conversation piece. Maybe I'll sell it to a hotrodder with poor judgement at some point.
