This must be what Obama means by transparency:
A proposed rule to the Freedom of Information Act would allow federal agencies to tell people requesting certain law-enforcement or national security documents that records don’t exist — even when they do.
Under current FOIA practice, the government may withhold information and issue what’s known as a Glomar denial that says it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records.
The new proposal — part of a lengthy rule revision by the Department of Justice — would direct government agencies to “respond to the request as if the excluded records did not exist.”
That is, the Injustice Department is granting the government authority to evade the law by telling lies. By a remarkable coincidence, the department is headed by a skeevy dissimulator who was recently caught lying to Congress about his involvement in the Fast & Furious gunrunning operation.
Just for laughs, here’s Barack Hussein in January 2009 praising the Freedom of Information Act and promising that transparency would be a “touchstone” of his administration:
Lawrence Sellin (Ret)

A reasonable person would probably say that involvement in acts that resulted in murder constitutes a high crime. It would certainly become one if the perpetrators went on to lie and cover up their involvement in that act. It has become quite clear that Attorney General Eric Holder, perhaps Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and highly likely, their boss, Usurper Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro, were involved in just such a crime and cover-up with Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious.
Even at the current level of cursory investigation – a congressional committee, rather than a special prosecutor – there appears to be undisputed evidence that this was a politically motivated plan designed to create the false impression that massive gun trafficking from the U.S. to Mexico was taking place, so Democrats could demand and impose draconian new gun control laws. They allowed thousands of guns to be illegally transported across our open border into Mexico by known members of Mexican drug cartels. Some of these weapons were used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, and wound ICE Agent Victor Avila. In addition, the weapons were used to murder dozens of Mexican citizens.
(CNSNews.com) – During fiscal years 2009 and 2010, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a division of the Department of Homeland Security, caught, detained and released at least 28 Iranian nationals inside the United States who then became fugitives when they failed to show up for immigration proceedings.
Four of the Iranians who became fugitives had been caught early in fiscal 2009 while President George W. Bush was still in office. The other 24 were caught after President Barack Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.

National Popular Vote manifesto, 2004
While the lamestream media holds public attention on GOP candidate rivalries, a “progressive” strategy is underway to eliminate the role of the states in electing a U.S. President. By transferring electoral votes to a “national popular vote” this “Compact” would usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution. In doing so, it could also neutralize Obama’s critics — totally.
This may be the most vital – and time sensitive – expose WAM has ever uncovered and shared! And it’s happening now, under the radar, with the general public in the dark. This “ultimate vote fraud” is intentionally complicated to keep it obscure until it’s too late to stop it.
problem with public housing is that the residents are not the owners.
The people that live in
the house did not earn the house, but were loaned the property from the true
owners, the taxpayers.
Because of this, the
residents do not have the “pride of ownership” that comes with the hard work
In fact, the opposite happens and the residents resent
their benefactors because the very house is a constant reminder that they
themselves did not earn the right to live in the house.
This isn’t good…
Just last week Governor Mitt Romney lectured Governor Rick Perry on his immigration record:
“You put in place a magnet to draw illegals into the state, which was giving $100,000 of tuition credit to illegals that come into this country, and then you have states — the big states of illegal immigrants are California and Florida.”
Here’s the video:
Now we find out that Romneycare funded healthcare for illegal immigrants… Just like Obamacare does. It was a magnate to draw illegals into the state.
The National Review reported:
Mitt Romney, who has called government-funded programs that offer assistance to illegal immigrants “magnets” that draw more illegal immigrants to the country, allowed a health-care program that helps illegal immigrations to be included in the final version of his health-care program that he signed. From the Los Angeles Times:
The Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance.
Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get publicly subsidized care at virtually no cost to them, regardless of their immigration status.
Related…In 2009 between 46,000 and 49,000 Massachusetts residents were fined under that state’s Romneycare law for not having health insurance, or for having a policy that did not include all the mandated coverages imposed by that law.
