I meant if we had been working towards less reliance on oil as a whole over the past 10-20 years, not just the past few months.

Why not work to reduce dependence on fossil fuel completely? Then it does not matter what Russia and SA do. But the Republicans have been fighting alternate fuel sources for decades.

Looks like Herschel Walker paid for a girlfriends abortion by check and wrote her a nice card.

Besides lying about it (but Herschel is in the Trump School of telling the truth) the hypocrisy stands out.  It would not surprise me that Trump paid for a girlfriend abortion back in the day but was smart enough to give her cash.

As Trump's lawyer your job is to take the bullet for him. He will pay you, maybe, to lie under oath for him so that you can get disbarred while he gets away with out consequence. So much for the Party of Personal Responsibility.

In Jan 2022 Trump told one of his lawyers to certify that Trump had returned all of the documents.

The lawyer refused since he was not certain it was true.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/lawyer-declined-trump-request-tell-115352150.html

So the lawyer was fairly sure his client was lying to him. Again, Trump lies. Trump lies all the time. Trump lies even to his lawyers.

Ok so Trump's lawyers knew that the NARA was missing documents that belonged to the Government in May 2021. They spent over a year trying to get Trump to turn them over.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/national-archives-notified-trump-lawyers-002234755.html

Again this boils down to Trump took documents that did not belong to him. He stonewalled turning them back over.  He felt entitled to those documents. Love letters from Kim Jong-Un.

Again where are you getting this 'Shadow Army" crap from?  The Republicans have slashed the size of the IRS. The number of employees is down almost 13% since 2012. Why do you have a problem with more employees making sure people, especially rich people, pay what they owe?  Notice I did not say fair share. That is another argument.

The IRS is just making sure people pay what they owe.  If you have armed IRS agents showing up you have some serious issues that have gone on over a period of years.

How many people here have ever been visited by an armed IRS agent?  Know of any one, personally, that has>?  My guess is the answer is no one.

A conviction for Election Fraud in NC.  Guess who was involved?  Not Democrats.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/four-plead-guilty-ballot-fraud-103107858.html

From most of the stories about election fraud the Republicans claims of fraud sure seem to be projection. They know there is fraud going on because they are the ones committing it.

Maybe Democrats are getting more money because people like what they stand for? And are supporting them? How is that nefarious?

So you found these numbers you reported but are not able to tell us where they came from or how they were generated. And are not able to find them again?  Maybe you might understand why we find them suspicious.

So you are not able to answer the question what does adjusted total mean?

And using Wm logic that once one group is found guilty, by association, all of the other groups are guilty, the fact was that 3 groups had their tax exempt status removed for political activity. So there was fire where there was smoke.

They probably will need them when you get Soverign Citizens and Libertarians who are of the "All taxes are theft" school who threaten IRS agents when they come to serve them with collection papers.

If you have armed IRS agents at your door you have done more than just have an audit.

Trump has not said that in any of the interviews he has given.  He has not said that in any of the legal filings he has filed.  Maybe he said that and realized it was a lie that could be checked and stopped saying it.

Ultimate authority does not give you leave to not follow the rules.  It gives him authority to start the processs.

So far all of the legal decisions have favored my reading of this and not yours  or Trumps.

I have said he can declassify anything he wants. However, you, and he, has not shown that there is not a process that needs to be followed to show that they have been declassified.  Every thing I see shows that they were not.

You said above that Trump "ordered his staff to do any paperwork to document and declassify the papers going to his storage at Mar-A-Laga to back that order. "  Who on his staff did he order? Have any of these people said they where ordered to do the paperwork to document and declassify the documents?

The answer so far is no.

And again, you have not responded to my question about him being able to do it just by thinking about it.  How does that jibe with your claim "ordered his staff to do any paperwork to document and declassify the papers going to his storage at Mar-A-Laga to back that order." 

Do you accept that doing something, just by thinking about it, is not good process, especially when it has never been a claimed power by any other President, ever?

Ok fine, but what does that have to do with "Armed IRS agents" which was what Noel was talking about.  This is a distraction, again, from the claim that the IRS is going to hire tens of thousands of armed IRS agents to go after low and middle class tax payers.

Which is a lie.

Did every single Dem vote against Defense spending?  No, then your point does not make any sense. You are moving the goal posts. Sure some of the more progressive Dems vote against it, or at least the increases the Defense Dept wants, but as a whole they support it.

But every single Republican voted against the Infrastructure bill. And now they are promoting the money it brings them.

As to the vaccine, why should I leave out the second part.  Do you think there would be no vaccine if Trump was not President at the time?  That is a bunch of crap and  you know it. There would have been a vaccine with no government action. It might have taken longer, but it would have happened.

As to the IRS, I know who  Louis Lehrner is.  Did she send armed agents after these groups? And her problem was denying tax exempt status to Tea Party aligned groups, not doing audits or sending armed agents to average tax payers.  You are going to have to do better than that.

As to vaccines Trump did what was needed.  However, it would have been done with out him (one of the companies did not take Operation Warp Speed money if I remember correctly).

My belief is that Trump would have held the vaccine over the heads of the Gov. of blue states, sort of like he did when there were national emergencies and he wanted Governors to come beg him for aid.

I do not see Biden making DeSantis come to DC and ask for help. He is just going to send the help.

Why bring up Defense. Republicans vote for that.

As to the IRS, I would love to see them audit the rich at a much higher rate, percentage wise, then they do low income.  I mean there is so much more there to find.

And that 1% rate is mainly due to the budget cuts the Republicans have forced on the IRS.

As to the number that have guns, the IRS has over 80,000 employees. That is just 2.5%.  And there is no evidence that more armed employees will be hired, although  I would expect some of the new employees to be armed, say 2.5% of them.

What do you have against the IRS doing its job? Collecting more of the money that is legally owed by taxpayers to the US Government?  If the $80 million will net us $200 million in additional, owed tax revenue, that seems like a good deal.

I pay my local, state and Federal taxes every year. I would probably be considered a high income person (family) due to the family LLC I am a member of.  I have never been audited, probably because we do not tell our accountants to push the limits and try and save a buck. We pay what we legally owe. So I have no worries about armed IRS agents. Why do you have worries?

One you didn't mention.

The Infrastructure deal.  The one the Republicans are campaigning on in their home districts about how much money it will bring their area and how much good the projects will be for the people in that area. Which is also the deal every single one of them voted against. What a bunch of hypocrits.

Also, where has Biden hired gun toting IRS agents? Why do you have a problem with making sure rich Americans pay what they owe? Because that is all that is going to happen. People who pay their taxes properly will not have an issue. Which means that probably more than 75% of Americans will not be affected. Only the rich top percentage of payers, who are not paying what they owe, will have issue. They can avoid this by just paying what they owe and not committing a crime. 

In the famous words of Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, just comply.

The thing is he has already been found responsible.  This is just the penalty phase.

He, and his lawyers, did not comply with the discovery portion on the trial, so it was basically a default judgement against him. He lost that part of the suite by not supplying any information to the plaintiffs. So it was basically a summary judgement.

And now he is complaining about it. That is why he is not able to make certain claims or statements when testifying.

This is the first time Wm has said that Trump ordered staff to do any paper work.  Trump has been out of office coming up on 2 years now and none of the documents that they claim were declassified show up in any government site as declassified, as shown by the FOIA requests for them.

His lawyers have not claimed in legal filings the Trump declassified any documents, just that he could have. If Trump did as you say, why did they not claim that in the legal filings? Who among his staff was supposed to do this?  Trump should know who that was and list that person in the legal filings.

Instead we get most of the people who are responsible for these actions saying it never happened. His Chief of Staffs  (at least 3 of them) all say it never happened. His own White House council say it did not happen.

The Special Master is asking Trump to put up or shut up in a legal sense. And so far Trump has given nothing.

My guess it is because he has nothing. He got caught red handed with his hand in the cookie jar.

And again you ignore my question. What do you think about Trump saying he could declassify with just thinking about it?  No notification to anyone about what he did?

 "or by election insiders"  I take it to mean people like Tina Peters or the lady in GA who let Trump supporters into see the machines with out notifying anyone, even when it is against the rules.

That type of access could be used to contaminate machines.  Since Republicans have been caught red handed tampering with machines, we should ignore any vote cast for a  Republican in GA since it would obviously be suspect.
