  1. TRUMP, BIDEN, PENCE & SANTOS 2023 ???

    Most of the time as a politician stands up

    Along with the truth, their brain sits down.

    Promising anything and everything to anyone

    While posing to the public, to be on common ground.

    The higher the office the greater the corruption

    As candidates compete for those dead presidents of green.

    While we're taxed to death to fund their pork

    Our cost for everything has become obscene.

    Thank God there are some better than most

    Not squeaky clean, but more honest than others.

    Regardless of party, they deserve our vote

    For they share our thoughts like sisters and brothers.

    Goodness and evil illustrate life

    Like the two sides of every coin.

    Most can’t help but experience both

    As we learn who to trust, follow and join.

    Honor those with morals and ethics

    Who live by Heavenly command.

    Without their bravery and God’s grace

    We become the distortion of man.

    Some have asked why must we study history

    It just encourages us to live in the past.

    When we forget history we repeat its mistakes

    As the outcome of humanity is cast.

    Politicians who wish to be revered by history

    Must earn their fame by living the truth.

    Any who continue to mislead and deceive

    Must be shunned by the voter at the booth.

  2. They’re going to have to check bush, Obama and the Clinton’s homes for classified documents. They must not be that important if they are in their homes.

  3. The raid on Mara Lago was the most aggressive search for documents, since Darth Vader boarded that rebel ship looking for the Death Star plans!!

  4. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18 NKJV

    Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NKJV

  5. Justice for Tory❤🙏🏼✨

  6. If this wasn’t so sad it would be comical

  7. Well he’s doing everything he can per his lawyers. Doesn’t everyone?

  8. The group of people that pack after a new administration takes over should be investigated. I don’t think the presidents would pack office papers.

  9. So basically everyone have personal classified documents just lying around everywhere? Wtf is going on here?

  10. Lol errbody and they mama got classified documents

  11. I am wondering, who is packing the papers? Are they paying attention to what they are packing? How much oversight does the president and vice president have when things are being packed? Should there be independent oversight, over the packing of papers from the presidents and vice presidents office? Obviously, at this point I would not be surprised if every president and vice president inadvertently and take him home classified documents, that are still sitting in the boxes they were originally packed in. I know that I have boxes I have not even opened from my move from Arizona to Missouri in 2015. They are labeled books. I did not have a place to put the my books, then I just forgot about them until I moved again.

  12. Can you imagine how angry Congressional members must feel because they have to enter a sealed skiff dungeon with no cell phone & they cannot take anything in or out of the locked & guarded area when they VIEW Classified top secret documents! They could simply go over to the executive’s places to see & photograph those secret documents so they would not have to be subjected to any of that.

  13. It’s hilarious Kirsten Welker’s inflammatory biased take on the Biden documents… “Meanwhile, the fire storm over President Biden’s handling of classified documents is growing”… Totally evenhanded when it comes to Mike Pence, and insane when it comes to Biden… Very revealing

  14. The people who give them ANY documents, should have a record of them having it on a certain day and until it is returned to be secured, that record should be acknowledged

  15. Does ANYONE believe that Biden & Pence did not KNOW they had RED-LETTERED “CLASSIFIED” labeled documents in their possession? Gimme a giant break. They are not that stupid & neither are we.

  16. There is a ton of difference in these three cases! Trump had the authority to declassify his documents! Biden did not and Pence did not. I doubt that anyone suspects Pence of intentionally breaking the law! I’m pretty sure that any honest thinking person knows that Biden would do anything because he thinks he is above the law and he is probably right with this corrupt system in place today! And on top of all that, only Biden of the three, is in bed with the Communist Chinese and others via his criminal son! This is defiantly a crime family that is sticking it to America! The whole Democrat party is a crime family that is sticking it to America! They are the enemy within! Make no mistake about it! We need CW2 to fix this mess, or this nation is gone!

  17. Why is this an issue now? Hasn’t it been common for former Presidents to have these types of documents? I’m not saying it’s right or wrong. But why is it now just becoming a news event?

  18. Trump was the only one of these three who had legal right to declassify material. Everyone do their own research, don’t believe the legacy media…they have an agenda and it’s not truth.

  19. We would never have “discovered” Biden’s nor Pence’s nor anyone else’s—except Trump’s—if the Republicans had not taken back the House.Imagine if the R had won the senate too. The shadow government do not want us to look behind the curtain. They certainly have a lot to lose.

  20. I cant stand Biden or Pence but this is all beginning to look like a set up. Its pretty clear the left no longer want Biden running in 2024 nor finish out his term. And Pence is a rino anyways. I do not know the entirety of this or the Biden story but the National Archives is supposed to know who has what at any given time. That is their one job. This just doesn't pass the smell test.

  21. I'm glad Obama didn't have any. It would have christmas for them.

  22. So was this just never reported before with other Presidents and VPs?

  23. They got us on a wild goose chase

  24. So is this becoming the new qualifying standard for running for office?

  25. Oops. No, I didn't take anything with me.😉[ Mike Pence]

  26. String him up like Biden.

  27. CLEARLY the rules need to be changed, and NOBODY should be able to take anything even remotely classified home…

  28. Trump saying Mike and is innocent? That’s about as believable as some Trump maggots insisting JFK Junior, still alive and helping Trump return. Trump and Pence Same category or communist spies

  29. LOL 😂😂

    CHUMP20TOLIFE 🇺🇸🇺🇸



  30. This seems all very convenient

  31. Every elected official needs to have their house , business, foundations all searched .

  32. I love it .. Biden has them and the media is all but silent but now Pence does and it’s breaking news 😂

  33. The Political game is becoming more insanely ridiculous every day. A saying I heard many years ago. "If we can't FIND scandal on our opponents, CREATE one. Also, If a Politician had to tell the TRUTH when giving speeches, they would have NOTHING to say. Which sounds good to me.

  34. So it looks like all those politicians that went after Trump are no better than him after all😂😂😂😂

  35. Pence self reported to take the heat off of Biden they’re all the same

  36. Might want to check Obama's house while your at it 🤣

  37. C’mon man, Joe Biden is a hoarder of classified docs, the lying psychopath hid highly classified docs in four different locations, including docs hidden in two locations in the former Biden Center building, which ironically was paid for by Xi Jinping.
