Obama Touts Transparency But Condones Egregious Law-breaking [Update]

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster
US diplomat, lawyer, orator, & politician (1782 - 1852)



Ran across an interesting article over at  The author shares the fact that Judicial Watch has had to file over 1,000  FOIA  (Freedom of Information Act) claims and 100 lawsuits against the BHO BADministration.  My first reactions was - IS THAT ALL?  I'm sure that there are hundreds more FOIA claims that could have been filed (perhaps they were by other organizations) and many more lawsuits that could be filed in an ongoing investigation into all the LIES that are being told to the American people!  The graphic above shares more.

Of course, this isn't anything new for those who have been paying attention to Obamafraud over the past 4 1/2 years.  But how ironic it is that BHO pledged that his administration would be the most transparent and would follow the rule of law?  Exactly the opposite has occurred - over and over again!  How anyone could still support this puppet liar and his evil advisors - like Valerie Jarrett and George Soros, is beyond comprehension! 

I wonder why the 100 lawsuits have not been publicized?  Why haven't some been brought to trial and adjudicated?  Answer:  Eric Holder - the most criminal attorney general in the history of the United States of America!

It is important to look at what the author wrote and share opinions, thoughts, and comments about exactly why this BADministration can get away with so much criminality that it makes Nixon's Watergate seem like a lesser crime - to say the least!

Copy of post:

President Barack Obama, on his first full day in office in 2009, promised, “Let me say it as simply as I can: transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”

Time has given the lie to this bold statement—repeatedly.
In fact, what America has seen is unprecedented secrecy. Judicial Watch has had to file over 1,000 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and well over 100 lawsuits against the Obama administration seeking information about:
  • Obamacare;
  • the continued funding of the criminal ACORN network;
  • tracking Wall Street bailout money;
  • the czar racket;
  • immigration policy;
  • election integrity;
  • information on Operation Fast and Furious (which led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens);
  • records concerning the illegal appointment of Richard Cordray to the NSA-esque, personal financial data-drilling Consumer Finance Protection Board;
  • the images of the capture, killing, and burial of Osama bin Laden (that might upset the terrorists);
  • disastrous green energy loan guarantees;
  • Benghazi;
  • Billions of dollars of spending on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac (the government takeover of the mortgage market);
  • Hillary Clinton’s ethics compliance records (from an administration that has probably perfected the “ethics waiver,” but that’s another story).
This president touts transparency but condones law-breaking of open records laws by his administration. The Obama administration has perfected the art of “selective transparency.” It releases documents when it serves them and keeps them secret when it does not. For instance, the Obama White House makes a show of posting some of the Secret Service’s White House visitor log entries, while withholding hundreds of thousands of others and opposing the logs’ full release under law in court. We have even had to sue for basic information on the taxpayer costs of the Obamas’ many luxury vacations.
We battled the Bush administration all the way up to the Supreme Court on secrecy issues. But I can tell you that Obama makes George W. Bush seem like a piker on government secrecy. Leftists will, in rare honest moments, tell you too: the Obama administration is less transparent than the Bush administration.

Time is a friend to the politician with scandals and embarrassments to hide, in the hopes that the news cycle will move on or that the public will forget. Getting beyond the Obama administration’s smokescreen is about a simple principle: the public’s right to know the full truth about what its government is up to.

There are many “big lies” that live within the Obama administration. But few are promoted more directly by this president than the one about his administration’s supposed transparency.

Oh more thing.  That photo of Obummer at the top of the page is missing something.  This is more like it:

P.S.  Please see Steve's post at Cry and Howl!
I just can't stand to listen to the fraud on T.V. anymore.  I mute it or shut it off entirely!  However,  Steve shares what Zero said during an interview and it reveals just how much of a moron Barry is without his handlers feeding him words through the teleprompter!

Cry and Howl
Anyway I read a piece this morning  where Obama said,  … “if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a
long conflict — not a repetition of, you know, Iraq, which I know a lot of people are worried about — but if we are saying in a clear and decisive but very limited way, we send a shot across the bow saying, stop doing this, that can have a positive impact on our national security over the long term.”

That would send the Assad regime “a pretty strong signal, that in fact, it better not do it again.”
“We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences.”
Hold on Moron! If you have concluded the Syrian government “in fact carried these out” … then you say … “and if that’s so”???? Either it’s a fact or it’s not, Moron!

Perhaps the news getting out that it was the so-called "rebels" [a.k.a. Muslim Brotherhood terrorists] who launched chemical weapon attacks made Obummer backtrack on his accusations against the Syrian government!

Hey little lady! Thanks for linking little ol' Cry and Howl! I didn't realize I used the word "moron" so many times! You know you were absolutely right when you wrote that Obama acts like a school kid. Those were my thoughts as well. Of course we're heart broken over innocent people being slaughtered in Syria, but I sincerely believe we don't need to be sacrificing out men and women for people that hate us.
But we have to know that this is a delicate thing for Obama. He wants very badly to topple Assad and get the Brotherhood in there just like all the other "Arab Spring" regime changes. So he's working hard on how to use U.S. power to do it while appearing to stand neutral or by appearing to actually have America's interests at heart.

Well said Steve! Hey - do you happen to know why an Iranian like Valerie Jarrett would be on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood with Obummer regarding Syria, when Iran (and Russia) are on the side of Assad?

I heard elsewhere in the blogosphere (I think it was Ulsterman's blog)that Jarrett is leaving the White House? Perhaps a spat of some kind? Or, there was speculation that she was going to start working on Zero's pResidential library. Ugh! That's one I'll never visit!

I am glad to hear that the war drum beat has tapered down. It would have been totally unnecessary to get involved in the conflict!
