It Begins…Democrats Introduce Bill to Seal Obama’s Presidential Records
nicedeb.wordpress.com ^ | October, 6, 2011 | nicedeb

Posted on 10/14/2012 4:35:56 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

According to Judicial Watch, Rep. Edolphous Towns (D-NY) has introduced the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011. That bill would do with Obama’s presidential records what Obama has already done to his personal and collegiate records: Seal them up.

In an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama, a group of congressional Democrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow the commander-in-chief to keep presidential records secret after he leaves office.

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, the new president claimed that he was giving the American people greater access to “historic documents.”

The only thing “historical” about Obama’s record will be their use as evidence in his trial for treason.

Not while the Republican’s control the House of Representatives and soon [Hopefully] the U.S. Senate.

All a proposal like that does is make 0bama look more like the criminal he already is known to be.

Hide him back in a windy city closet.

Obama represents TREASON.

Hence, it MUST BE COVERED UP.

“Maj. Malik Nidal Hasan … served on the Homeland Security Policy Institute’s
Presidential transition task force between April 2008 and January 2009
when Barack Obama was inaugurated as the nation’s 44th president.”

Simply because If he loses and the MSM loses their love for their fallen leader and start really studying him they will confirm what we’ve know all alone; that he consistently lied to the American people in every facet - his background, his alliances with the Muslim Brotherhood, his attempts to change the Constitution, deceptions, manipulation, etc...He would be revealed as the biggest fraud to have ever been perpetrated against the American people in history. His true nature would be revealed.

He might be the first president to really need a Secret Service detail after he left the WH. I imagine there are people that will not treat him well or want to fo him harm after he leaves the WH though I can’t think of a reason why.../s

I'd really like to know who is on the list of dim bulbs who are doing the bidding of who ever is pulling the strings of Osama/Obama. I really think it would be helpful....oh , probably the likes of Harry Reid or Nancey Pelosie.......you know, those EXTREMISTS in the far left.....if any of you are reading this, I'd love for you to know that there are those ‘PEONS’ out here that are thinking, “Fine, if you want to live under a dictatorship, you have your pick of a lot of countries to run to....pack up your bags, take your ill gotten gain that you have pilfered from the tax payers here....and GO SOMEWHERE ELSE....just LEAVE OUR COUNTRY ALONE.....IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT , LEAVE IT. just quit screwing things up over here with your stinking so called ideology....but personally, I think GREED AND THE NEED FOR POWER are the driving force behind it all...this isn't something that just came out of the blue, we”ve been headed down this path for decades...this just happens to be that so called “perfect storm” where all the powers that be have come together to “bring down America”....politicians, and of course with the indispensable so called MEDIA.....so called JOURNALISTS....

All I can say to the whole bunch is SHAME ON YOU ....I wouldn't want to change places with you for anything.....think about it....we will ALL have to answer for our actions here on earth....like it or not, GOD IS IN CONTROL, AND COME WHAT MAY, HE ALWAYS WILL BE....

Some complete morons will build a nobama presidential library but it will be in an undisclosed location and not open to anyone. Maybe if society is lucky (and to save some money) it will turn out that the Leavenworth Federal Prison library will be where his records bare held so nobama can have quick access each day during his 60 minutes out of his solitary cell.

If he could undo Bush’s limiting of access, Mitt can undo the sealing of his...In fact it would serve to opena LOT of eyes about the most corrupt admin ever (and after the Clintons, that’s saying something).

As my tagline has stated for 3 years. I truly expect this president to see prison time once his transgressions become more public.

It won’t be hard for them to cover up what happened during his presidency. They’ve made a point to set up ghost communications avenues via Gmail, Yahoo, etc. All of that will be inaccessible via Freedom Of Information Act, etc.

This bastard attended the “Islamic Spirit Convention” to support Dar Al Hijrah at the Islamic Institute in Annandale, VA.on August 3rd, 2010.

I e-mailed the sonofab*tch and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors when it happened, just to let them know WE knew.

Hope he and others join Bath-House Barry in nearby cells after the SHTF.

I understand the outrage - but think about it, do you want the media circus, and do you think it will really “drive a stake” into the democrats ?

I think us Americans are pretty numb. Even after Clinton LIED right to our faces people love him. Even though all this Global Warming crap has been exposed...people still listen to MSNBC. You are asking for a scandal that will do nothing but provide the media with countless hours of programming, and pundits with hours and hours of spin - not to even talk about the lawyers.

I give Benghazi as a perfect example.

I want the government to focus on entitlements (debt), taxes, and jobs and national security. Under typical circumstances they should keep their books balanced and deal with national security and leave everything else alone.

I want the media circus, as well. What better way to expose the looting of America via the Cloward/Piven Strategy and the blatant closing of their eyes to John Corzine and the “missing” billions, the disenfranchisement of our military vote and everything else these socialists/marxist have perpetrated?

Then, after the media circus, the MEDIA needs exposure and culling.

Some may think Americans are stupid for having let perv Clinton get away with rape, but we didn’t have the alternative media then as we do now.

I do not think the victims of a national rape should “lay back and enjoy it”... nor should they avoid pressing charges for “fear of embarrassment”.

Tell me who sweeping this under the rug serves. Not me, I can tell you that. Not conservatives. Not the Constitution.

Whose face is it, that you are so anxious to save, again?

As much as I would like the democrats to be destroyed as well.... I think you are wasting resources....

While Americans are hungry for work and the economy is in the tank I need my government fixing the problems. Judging legacy is the job of historians.

The “public” doesn’t pay attention nor with MSM support our desire to get the story out even if the records were unlocked.

(Remember the guy who stuff national security docs in his pants - you got nothing out of that)
