Most Transparent White House In History Brings An End To Transparency

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.

But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It’s also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.

“The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me,” said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

    If rumors that the Obama administration has helped efforts in Israel to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are real, the U.S. has crossed “a red line,” says Danny Ayalon, former Israeli ambassador to the U.S.

    Jeremy Bird, a top operative in President Obama’s 2008 and ’12 campaigns, has been mobilizing a get-out-the-vote effort for Netanyahu opponent Isaac “Bougie” Herzog, leading to speculation that the White House is linked to it.

    Skeeter claimed he did not want to meet with the Prime Minister, because he was afraid of interfering with the imminent election. Lying again? Who woulda thunk it?

    Most Transparent White House In History Brings An End To Transparency, and Burns the Constitution

    President Obama has found himself at odds with his old law school mentor over the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Laurence Tribe, a liberal constitutional scholar at Harvard University, told House lawmakers that EPA carbon dioxide regulations are tearing the Constitution apart.

    “EPA possesses only the authority granted to it by Congress,” Tribe told lawmakers in a hearing Tuesday. “Its gambit here raises serious questions under the separation of powers… because EPA is attempting to exercise lawmaking power that belongs to Congress and judicial power that belongs to the federal courts.”

    “Burning the Constitution should not become part of our national energy policy,” Tribe added.

    Tribe, along with other legal and energy experts, appeared before Congress Tuesday to give testimony on the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” — the agency’s plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions from new and existing power plants. Tribe told lawmakers the CPP is unconstitutional and outside the agency’s authority.

    “EPA is attempting an unconstitutional trifecta: usurping the prerogatives of the States, Congress and the Federal Courts all at once,” Tribe told lawmakers.

    ” Most transparent administration in history ” , what a laugh, this has been the most dictatorial obfuscated administration in all of history. The Obaman candidacy was based on a lie. His foreign policy is contrary to the interests of the country. His domestic policy is suicidal..

    Every point of issue in his administration is pro-islam, pro-terrorism, anti-American, anti-Israel, and pro democrat party influence over illegal aliens.

    Who brought forth and elected this imposter ? Why the good old democrat party that’s who. I’d like to know who are still the blind faith democrat party voters ( my party , right or wrong ). Are some people still that stupid ? Will the blacks ever realize that they’ve been used and kept in constant anticipation only for their vote ?
