Looks like the documents at the think tank were discovered just before the midterm elections.

Biden’s Classified Documents: A Timeline of What We Know So Far

“On November 2, Biden’s private attorneys unexpectedly discovered the first collection of about 10 classified documents from the Obama-Biden administration in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center office in Washington D.C—a think tank that Biden founded.”

Some will want to make this a Trump/Biden thing. To me it is a federal government thing.

Reminder: both major parties appear to be OK with undeclared/unwon wars, wasteful and infective homeland security spending, (Has any presidential administration since 911 been able to create any shortage of cartel product anywhere in the US?) federal prohibition of marijuana, and treating 18-20 year old adults as second-class citizens.

Alcohol, marijuana, tobacco and firearms restrictions are in place for 18-20 year old adults. Is there any state where recreational marijuana laws remove prohibition for adults at age 18?

Questions for Newspeople

Were the docs logged out/signed for?

Were the docs discovered missing at the time they were not logged out/signed for?

What happened at the next inventory?

Were the docs discovered missing at the time they were not turned back in after being logged out/signed for?

Why did the docs go missing for a period of years?



Map of sensors on the U.S.-Canadian border shows up at a garage sale:


Post 911/GWOT security protocols fail to keep sensitive Dept. of Homeland Security documents from being released to the public at a garage sale.

Quite a story about the bad guy & his fate.

Zero reporting on how these sensitive documents left the workplace. Any violation of procedures?

“It’s not known how Rankin got the government documents, as Ellsworth said authorities were told several stories.”

Not known how Rankin got ahold of the documents?

Why try to change the story now?

The embarrassing connection to a garage sale has been out since October 2011.

Question to ask:

How do sensitive DHS documents leave the workplace without being signed out for official business?

Were government officials held accountable in any way?

“We would like to thank the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations for their hard work, commitment and dedication to this case” said Chief Patrol Agent John Bates of the U.S. Border Patrol, Blaine Sector.

Chief Bates-

Were procedures violated Re: handling of sensitive documents?

What steps have been taken to prevent a similar event from happening again?

How does the US Department of Homeland Security compare to the US Navy in working to prevent such incidents?

In the DOD/US Armed Forces- sensitive documents/computer disks, etc. are tightly controlled.

These procedures are not new- & serve to prevent misplaced/sensitive documents from being released to the public at garage sales.

People without a proper security clearance & need to know- do not have access to sensitive documents.


Navy COs get fired for this sort of stuff.


We are talking about DHS- an agency tasked with preventing another 911?


Elsewhere on the local scene-

US Dept. of Homeland Security Port Angeles, WA:

Sentries & watchstanders unable to prevent lone bumbler from penetrating US Coast Guard base- then smoking marijuana in the CO’s quarters aboard 210-foot cutter Active- not to be discovered until hours later at morning colors.

A symbol of the US federal government. Maybe tossed aside along with sensitive documents and not to be discovered until years later.
