NY Times Is Very Concerned That Republicans Aren’t In Perpetual Outrage Over Trump Search

We very much appreciate their concern, however, unlike Democrats, we cannot stay in a state of perpetual outrage, and now it’s the time to let it play through. However, we don’t forget. Like, that the DOJ was concerned about the material all the way back in January, yet, waited till August to ask for the search warrant, then waited 7 days to implement it (paywalled Times article here)

Republicans, Once Outraged by Mar-a-Lago Search, Become Quieter as Details Emerge

In the minutes and hours after the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s residence in Florida this month, his supporters did not hesitate to denounce what they saw as a blatant abuse of power and outrageous politicization of the Justice Department.

But with the release of a redacted affidavit detailing the justification for the search, the former president’s allies were largely silent, a potentially telling reaction with ramifications for his political future.

“I would just caution folks not to draw too many conclusions,” Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia, a Republican, said on Fox News. It was a starkly different admonition from his earlier condemnations of what he said were “politically motivated actions.”

Some Republicans will no doubt rally around Trump and his claim that he is once again being targeted by a rogue FBI that is still out to get him. His former acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said on Twitter that “this raid was, in fact, just about documents,” which he called “simply outrageous.” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. and an ardent Trump ally, was on the right-wing broadcaster Newsmax denouncing the FBI as politically biased, though he notably did not defend the former president’s possession of highly classified documents.

But generally, even the most bombastic Republicans — Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Jim Jordan of Ohio — were at least initially focused elsewhere. Greene was posting on Friday about border “invasions.” Boebert noted on Twitter the anniversary of the suicide bombing of U.S. service members at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. Jordan was focused on an interview with Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder. None tweeted about the affidavit.

There are plenty of things to be outraged over. The Times failed to mention what the Facebook issue is, namely, the FBI played political games in warning Zuckerberg that the information on Hunter Biden was “Russian disinformation.” Perhaps Green was concerned that documents show that the Biden admin is still releasing COVID positive illegals at the border. It’s rather important that U.S. service members were killed a year ago due to Biden incompetence, is it not?

And voters are again distracted by Trump in the political spotlight, even as Republicans try to direct their attention toward the economy and soaring inflation when the Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said efforts to control rising prices would exact pain on Americans.

All of this could mean that enough Republican voters grow weary of the division and drama around Trump and are ready to move on.

We wouldn’t be distracted if the FBI hadn’t performed a dawn raid for what appears to be political purposes, and, come on, Democrats and their pet media haven’t stopped talking about Trump since he left office. Don’t expect Republican voters to move on, though. We can remember everything without the type of never-ending apoplexy Democrats engage in. There are so many issues in Biden’s America that it’s hard to focus on everything, it’s hard to continue the constant outrage. Meanwhile, if you look at the NY Times this morning, all the articles on the Mar-O-Lago raid are way down the page.

    Teach typed: We wouldn’t be distracted if the FBI hadn’t performed a dawn raid for what appears to be political purposes

    The FBI executed a legal search warrant to retrieve sensitive government documents that tRump had refused to return to the National Archives. Period.

    As expected, politics of the search warrant BENEFITTED DonJon by firing up his worshipers.

    If any other US politician with security clearance had intentionally taken these documents and refused to return them they would be subject to a search.

    Sandy Berger stole one document and after pleading guilty to the misdemeanor, lost his security clearance, gave up his law license, received 2 years probation and was fined $50,000. Berger lied to investigators and said he took the document inadvertently. The same crime today is a felony. Trump led chants of “Lock Her Up!” after accusing his political opponent, Hillary Clinton, of illegally storing classified documents, going so far as signing a law turning the misdemeanor into a felony with 5 years prison time! The FBI Director James Comey announced an ongoing FBI investigation 11 days before the election, benefitting trump.

    • Facts Matter says:

      Sandy Berger stole one document and after pleading guilty to the misdemeanor

      It was an active theft. He went to an area where no documents were to be removed. They were in protective custody at the time he stole it.

      These documents belong to the Trump Administration and Trump has been working with the national Archives for a long, long time already handing over 15 boxes prior to the raid.

      The question becomes why would the archives not TAKE all this stuff instead of leaving it, telling them to lock it up and having the Secret Service guard it and then getting a search warrant?

      You lie. Your party lies and the FBI is out of control. The DOJ has been weaponized against the everyday man and the FBI attempts to make people commit crimes by planting informants inside and then these informants encourage people to commit crimes.

      We are a banana republic and you like it. These same cops profile blacks and arrest them. Who profile Hispanics and arrest them. Who profile Muslims and arrest them.

      Well, they don’t matter any longer(because they are not politically expedient for your cause) when they go after TrUMP or a Republican. You blatantly attempt to rouse insurrection on this website by spewing lies, falsehoods, and deceit and then beg us to come to beat you up or to get our guns and rise up against the government.

      We do not want to rise up against the government. We want the government to be the protector of EVERY US CITIZEN. NOT based upon race, creed, color or religious affiliation. Certainly not based upon political party. We call out unelected, out-of-control FBI, CIA and other federal agencies for failing in their basic duty.

      Upholding and defending the constitution………F A I R L Y!!!!!!!!!!!

      You are evil Dowd. You are most likely a China agent or an FBI piece of Trash, garbage collector trying to incite violence so you can arrest more Conservatives.

        Facts Matter typed: You are most likely a China agent or an FBI piece of Trash

        In my long career, I have worked with Chinese, Japanese, Iranian, Indian, English, Belgian, Chilean, Australian, Canadian, French, Indonesian, Brazilian, Dominican, Italian, etc men and women, and DO know one former FBI agent, a wonderful conservative distant relative and neighbor, but I’m just a liberal guy in middle America concerned that the nuGOP is trying to destroy America. I consider China the most significant foreign threat to the US, politically and economically.

        I believe in the free and fair democratic process. I DO believe that the US has reached a point where we are effectively a plutocracy, a nation controlled by the wealthy at the expense of the working and middle classes. We need to find ways to reverse this. Global warming is a long term threat. I feel conservatives have signaled that they would enact a conservative theocracy if given the opportunity.

Your first defense of yourself is how you work with all nationalities and women which in and of itself is racist. I do too. What does that have to do with anything? People are people.

          By all means, correct any errors or exaggerations by me.

          Gov. Kathy Hochul, who hasn’t proven shy about issuing orders, had one for the state’s Republicans this week — all 5.4 million of them: “Just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong, OK?” she said. “You are not New Yorkers.”

          Crist(D) running for Florida governor.

          “Those who support the Governor should stay with him,” he said during a preit ss conference on Wednesday. “I don’t want your vote. If you have that hate in your heart, keep it there.”

          This is what and who you are. You defend this, encourage it daily at this site and it is why I say again. You spread lies and hate about conservatives while ignoring the hate and lies your own party spreads.

          I feel conservatives have signaled that they would enact a conservative theocracy if given the opportunity. See Above.

    “If any other US politician with security clearance had intentionally taken these documents and refused to return them they would be subject to a search.”

    Not true. If Pedo joe took’em you’d be screaming it’s his right. Didn’t Obama take like millions of classified docs when he left office?

    Since Trump had presidential access and presidential rights to possession and declassification you have no case. BUt you’ll keep trying because it’s not about the documents. It’s about “””GETTING TRUMP””” BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      It IS the President’s right to hold and view classified materials. tRump is not the president. Mar a Lago is not considered a secure location by NARA. Camp David DOES have secure facilities for handling classified materials.

      Re President Obama and NARA:

      The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) assumed exclusive legal and physical custody of Obama Presidential records when President Barack Obama left office in 2017, in accordance with the Presidential Records Act (PRA). NARA moved approximately 30 million pages of unclassified records to a NARA facility in the Chicago area, where they are maintained exclusively by NARA. Additionally, NARA maintains the classified Obama Presidential records in a NARA facility in the Washington, DC, area. As required by the PRA, former President Obama has no control over where and how NARA stores the Presidential records of his Administration.

      tRump is lying to you about President Obama.

      I DON’T have a case, but the DOJ may. For reasons known only to him, tRump took boxes of documents, many classified, to his home and refused to return them. The DOJ sought and obtained a legal search warrant to find and retrieve the documents that tRump refused to return. Mr tRump will get his days in court. I suspect there will be no charges. tRump should have surrendered the files to NARA when they first asked so many months ago. He may have been baiting the DOJ to search his home for his own political purposes.

  3. Dana says:

    Our distinguished host began:

    We very much appreciate their concern, however, unlike Democrats, we cannot stay in a state of perpetual outrage, and now it’s the time to let it play through.

    In the first pilot for Star Trek, Captain Pike discovered that the Talosians couldn’t read his mind through violent hate, but, as Vina pointed out, humans just can’t keep it up that long.

    And so it is with Republicans: we can be outraged for a while at stupidity, but we do have our lives to be lived: jobs, taking care of our children and exclusively opposite sex spouses, keeping up with our property, going to Mass, etc. We then allow the outrage to build again when it comes time to vote.

    Contrast this to the spittle-flecked left, outraged all the time, which, according to what I learned from Star Trek, casts some doubt on whether they are truly human.

    Of course, we have learned that their outrage comes with a healthy helping of hypocrisy. The left were outraged, appalled, incensed, that we tried to stem the tide of illegal immigrants, and were overjoyed when President Biden turned the spigot of illegals back on . . . right up until Governor Greg Abbott said, “OK, you want ’em, you’ve got ’em,” and started loading up the illegals onto busses and sending them to the sanctuary cities which claim that they wanted them.

    Now it turns out that the left’s outrage was that the illegals weren’t in other people’s neighborhoods. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mx Dana claims that liberals are more outraged than cons. Puh-leeze!

      Cons attacked the US Capitol egged on by conservative elites (who hypocritically abandoned them when the plot failed). All because they lost an election and their strongman is mad!!

      The right has become a personality cult of angry men playing dress up (e.g., Proud Boys – they are told to masturbate only once per calendar month, LOL!), constantly pissed off because they don’t always get their way (and that they can only masturbate once per month) . They are fueled by a seething hatred of the “other” – blacks, browns, Jews, Muslims, gays, trans, libs, intellectuals, scientists, atheists, agnostics – nuCons fear being left behind and are lashing out. They fear no longer being dominant.
      These “masculine” males like Josh Hawley, Mx Dana, DonJon tRump and Tucker Carlson lecture us all regarding true masculinity. LOL. They mock and degrade the other.

      They are obsessed with controlling female sexual activity and reproduction. They are obsessed with gender identity. They are obsessed with gay sex. And Melania’s soiled panties. They create fantastical stories of masculine conquest (note the paintings of the conquering tRump, shirtless), enemy pedophiles, LGBTQ grooming of children.

      Ruth Ben-Ghiat:

      Non-liberal political solutions tend to take hold when increased gender equity and emancipation spark anxieties about male authority and status. A conquest-without-consequences masculinity, posing as a “return to traditional values,” tracks with authoritarianism’s rise and parallels the discarding of the rule of law and accountability in politics.

      Kirk Swearingen:

      This bizarre-tent party of religious grifters, pussy grabbers, gun polishers, closeted men, angry incels, alleged rapists and take-girls-across-the-state-line Lotharios is evangelically intolerant of the personal business of others and determined to dictate whom you can love or marry, how you should come to terms with your gender identity and how much of your reproductive future you should control. These people believe they have the right to demand that you go through your entire pregnancy even if you have been raped or are the victim of incest, and they’re not particularly concerned if you die fulfilling their will.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        So who opened the doors to Capitol allowing the “raging hordes” to enter unobstructed?

        It’s a really hard question so a silly response from Rimjob is not expected.

        It’s funny Rimjob keeps talking about obsessions while his own TDS comes to mind.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          CumBreath lifted his head long enough to type: So who opened the doors to Capitol allowing the “raging hordes” to enter unobstructed?

          Proud Boys, IIIPercenters etc. Did CumBreath not watch any videos of the riot? And here?

          Wingers deny reality and THIS is a big problem.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Ah, so Rimjob selects certain edited videos and ignores many others that do show the Capitol police opening doors and allowing peaceful protestors entry.

            Somehow the video of a black guy with a badge shooting and killing an unarmed white woman seems to be missing from the montage.

            Nice propaganda you’re spreading there, dipshit.

  4. Doom and Gloom says:

    LOLOLOL…..NARA claims Obama did not take 33 million documents but that they have them.

    FROM THE AP trying to shit on Trump and Defend Obama:

    The fact that such secret papers were reportedly seized directly from Trump’s estate is the key distinction between Trump’s records and Obama’s, Hufbauer said.

    **************“Even if there are duplicate copies of these documents in the National Archives (which there almost certainly are), sensitive documents about, say, nuclear secrets, are to be housed in a secure facility, and access to them is very tightly controlled,” he said.*********************

    The NARA has DUPLICATES!!!!!!!!! WHERE ARE THE ORIGINALS???????????

    FIRST THERE ARE NO NUCLEAR PAPERS IN TRUMPS POSSESSION. This is just bullshit drummed up without evidence. IF this was True they would have already arrested Trump and put him on Trial for espionage.

    SO according to the expert rolled out by the AP there are duplicates of these documents. Yet Trump is evil for having a few thousand documents….aka 33 boxes.


    YET how long would it take to verify this with a dozen or perhaps two dozen people going through each document? 33 MILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Such bullshit. The unelected shadow government is out of control.

    Fantastic day at church. The groups of guys I usually talk with gave me a wonderful speech about why they’re switching to Republican and not voting for ANY democrat on the ticket. Now I realize as a bunch of spades in New Jersey that won’t make any difference even without the dems cheating but it’s good to hear. Plus, if my guys who have been ensconced in democrat propaganda since birth are coming around think about what’s happening around the country.

    The main thing was the assault on Mar-a-Lago by the heavily armed FBI wing of the democratic party. We likened that to the KKK running down blacks in the old days. The dems still use their old tricks. Even these guys know enough about justice to know this stuff ain’t right.

            Here’s a primer on the theory of AGW including some of the general evidence for you to dismiss.

            Have fun not reading. Teach, Zoe Phin, Tony Wuwt, The Trickster and other “acclaimed scientists” have your back!

            “Is Not”, is rarely much of a rebuttal.

            BTW, why do you think the Earth is warming if not from atmospheric CO2? Do you have evidence for an alternative theory?

    Dowd, even your own leftist polls admit the people of America are tired of leftist lies. Grow up.

    “Nearly 80% of Americans believe we live under a two-tiered system of justice. Likewise, in Gallup’s recent survey of Americans’ confidence in U.S. institutions, it notes, “This year’s poll marks new lows in confidence for all three branches of the federal government — the Supreme Court (25%), the presidency (23%) and Congress.” Of sixteen institutions tested, confidence in the U.S. Congress sits at the very bottom with a scant 7%! Even though there is now “record-low confidence across all institutions,” confidence in the Office of the Presidency suffered the largest year-over-year drop in 2022 — cratering 15%! In other words, not only do Americans believe the country is lawless.”

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      From that poll Americans have also lost faith in Religion, the reactionary Supreme Court and even the police and our Military!!

      Americans have been through a rough 5 years. BLM riots, waves of Covid infections/deaths, a violent insurrection, near historic unemployment, job losses, an incompetent and divisive president, reactionary Courts, droughts, floods, fires, the degeneration of the GOP, and now inflation, loss of rights and a Russian attack on Ukraine.

      • Jl says:

        And the proof that the Supreme Court is “reactionary” is… what?
        This non-answer should be priceless…

  10. Jl says:

    First of all, that’s not evidence. That’s simply them saying “Co2 and temp went up so it must be CO2!”. That’s simply a correlation, not proof of causation. One of their “reasons” is the “temp rate is unprecedented!” That’s BS also, as there were many times earlier in the Holocene when temps changed much faster. This isn’t that hard, but they can’t do it. Ever wonder why? Simply show that adding CO2 will make something warmer than a lesser amount of CO2 in a high-school experiment. 120 years and nothing.
    “Have evidence of an alternative theory”. First of all, one isn’t needed, as the onus is on those making the extraordinary claims to come up with the evidence, which they haven’t. But as shown here many times, there are several with accompanying peer- reviewed papers-clouds and short wave solar radiation.
    “‘Is not’ is rarely much of a rebuttal”. Funny-which was said after our J-boy uttered “there is more evidence..”. which rarely proves there’s evidence when none is ever offered.

    • Jl says:

      And you’ve got to love the main chart they use from your link- it simply shows CO2 rising, that all. No one has ever disputed that CO2 is rising, now have they? And the chart conveniently starts several hundred thousand years ago, because if they expanded the scale to millions of years it would show CO2 much higher than now.

      • Jl says:

        Geez.J, did you read your own article? Look what else they claim is evidence-all natural events that have happened in the past with CO2 much lower. And then they flat out lie claiming “extreme events are getting worse”. There’s absolutely no proof of that. Why the need to lie if the “science is on their side”?

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Geez, Jill, you ignore the evidence. Hardly surprising.

          Why do you think the Earth is warming now?

          Ask the people of Texas, Mississippi, California, Nevada if they think things are getting worse.

  11. CarolAnn says:

    “Why do you think the Earth is warming now?”

    For the same reason it’s warmed and cooled before: nature. It’s natural for planets to warm and cool based on their sun and all the natural things going on. Man can’t run the weather let alone the climate. Only a science denier could think otherwise. Do other planets warm and cool? Do ya think that’s caused by the cycles of the sun and perhaps the inner earth? I know that does not make for good fear mongering but…

    “Ask the people of Texas, Mississippi, California, Nevada if they think things are getting worse.”

    So now you climate cultists and science deniers think it’s up to a democratic vote regarding climate science? By non scientists based on where they live? A better tell would be to ask the people of Sri Lanka if they think things are getting worse. Soon as people freeze and starve all over the world for lack of cheap fossil fuels to heat and feed them maybe you can put that up for a vote?
