Democrats Want to Keep Secret Obama's Presidential Records

Rate this post

Design by the brilliant BKeyser

In 2008, the Democrat Party deliberately did not vet Skippy’s constitutional eligibility, but instead signed their approval — for which no one (not Republicans for sure) is holding them responsible.
Now, thanks to the fearless and persistent citizen watchdog group, Judicial Watch, we learn that to further evade their culpability and cover up the tracks, a group of Congressional Demonrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow Skippy to keep his presidential records secret even after he leaves office.
If the Demonrats’ proposed measure (Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011) becomes law, former presidents will be allowed to assert a new “constitutionally based privilege” against disclosing records of their selection. Here is how it would work; the Archivist of the United States would be required to notify the former president, as well as the incumbent, of intentions to make records public. Anything that either the former or current president claims should be kept private won’t be released.

Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-NY)

Demonrat Congressman Edolphus Towns of Brooklyn, NY, recently introduced the proposed law in the U.S. House without explaining why it’s necessary.
Ironically, Obama revoked a similar George W. Bush order in one of his first official acts as president. In 2001 Bush penned an executive order severely limiting public access to his presidential records. Shortly after swearing in, Obama killed it as part of his much-ballyhooed commitment to government transparency. At the time, Skippy claimed that he was giving the American people greater access to “historic documents.” But now, he’s having his henchman Towns propose a bill that will do exactly what Bush had tried to do.
Ah, the sweet smell of HYPOCRISY!
If the Republicans in Congress allow the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011 to become law, then it’s really “Raise the Pitchforks, Burn Down the Barn” time.
So, tell your reps and senators that they’ll approve of this bill over your their dead bodies!
A big h/t to beloved fellow Joseph.

  1. Golly, when I logged on I read the poster’s headline as “Lord of the FILES”!
    I wonder what Steve saw….

  2. This Skippy is one man that has gotten away with scammng all of us. No surprise the rats want to cover for him, even after he vacates the WH.
    The repubs better not pass this…

  3. Hiding evidence.

  4. What next! And this is supposed to be an administration of transparency! As we have all experienced, this has been and continues to be an administration of secrecy. Thank you, Dr. Eowyn, and Joseph, for this critical piece. God help us!

    • Dear joandarc: I was born and raised in Chicago, so I’m intimately aware of its politics and social structure. Thus, I knew he was a puppet from the very first I heard of him, because there cannot be a ‘dark horse’ or innocent player in that environment. It is so corrupt that to even be an alderman one is partly compromised, and it’s all downhill from there, no matter how high the politico rises afterward.

  5. I think it’s time for the House repubs to get off their butts and force the issue.
    They should have done it the first day this congress was in session back in January.

  6. They don’t call DC, the District of Criminals, for nothing!

  7. And the administration of lies and more lies continues.

  8. I am so fed up with this whole records thing. This has always been a non-issue – Because no one else that has held an office, ‘especially’ that of President, has had an ‘issue’ with it because it is required and expected for disclosure upon the laws set forth prior to election. That is, until this ‘dirty-word’ took the oath of office! This is against the policies that we, as a nation, have put forth. And only now…because of BO’s records garb, they want to enact some new precedent for presidential candidates. What ev-er. May the Lord have mercy…I can’t take much more of this kind of corruption – Remember the first day of BO in office? Very interesting…

  9. Imagine…
    If transparency in the Obama Administration actually existed:
    The President’s life would not be cloaked in secrecy. Americans would have known what was in Obamacare before Nancy Pelosi encouraged Congress to pass it to find out.

  10. revolutions have been waged from lesser things then what the obama administration has been pulling. and no outcry from the repubs or the media
    no taxation without representation
