The world seems to be becoming just as lawless as the days of the Wild West ...but with fewer consequences.

There are differences between the two cases, not that it makes one worse than the other, just different. So lets look at the similarities.

1. Both parties had confidential documents that, according to the rules, they should not have.

2. Both parties have been cavalier about the storage of these documents. A combination of sloppiness and arrogance.

3. (And this is speculative.) The main culprit is over classification. None of the docs if published in the NYT would have made a damn bit of difference.

Interestingly, even in the German media the Biden case is downplayed, the argument is that the Biden team turned over the documents voluntarily, so no big deal...

I'm wondering why this is coming out now? Did his staffers wait until after the mid-terms to turn the documents over? Is this all a coincidence? Also, how terrible is the US government at keeping track of secret documents? I think some of the documents Biden had in his possession were supposed to stay in the SCIF - that's the whole point. Did no one check?

I reject comparisons between the two incidents. The same laws regarding handling of classified material were transgressed. My personal view is that Trump retained the materials because he was hoping to use them to prove he had been cheated out of the 2020 win; Biden retained the materials because he was already incompetent at the time.

The root problem causing most of our other problems is that our main operating system (government/schools/media) have been corrupted.

If you tell us the kind of systems that govern over you, we can accurately predict your quality of life. If those systems are corrupted then so are you (and your families).

It is time to organize with other like minded individuals and fix them.

We know the solutions. Decentralize everything. Demand transparency in systems. And most efficiently, weaponize the tyranny of the masses back onto the people corrupting our systems to end this Global Agenda.

Apparently a 4th set of documents was found yesterday. 5 new pages in his house in addition to the 1 found in his house.

I saw myself as guarding the castle...with nuclear capabilities (my boss).

I worked with a group that had some classified and confidential files. I hadn't gotten my clearance at the time so I rode their butts over keeping stuff locked up.

I don't know about the archives people in DC but if they're even 1/10 as gung-ho as I was, Bidet would NOT have that paperwork. Not without signing for it! The vast majority of people who work with classified or confidential documents are EXTREMELY tight-assed about them. With good reason! They do not belong in garages or home libraries! Never, never, never!

I have to ask if you subscribe to The Spectator too? I recently renewed my subscription which I’d let lapse and look forward to it almost as much as my Substack subs.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt that the double standards applied to these two cases are burning bright as, well, the sun.

I know this. I was being sarcastic.
