Why do we even expect an unconstitutional government branch to follow the intent of the law? What good is suing criminal behavior in court before self made kings in black robes? The whole whole government has become ludicrous.
When you roll snake eyes a dozen times in a row it is either time to admit the table is fixed, or get a new set of dice.
The Most Transparent Administration In Human History Sure Likes To Plead the Fifth,
“The way to make government responsible is to hold it accountable. The way to make government accountable is to make it transparent, so the American people can know exactly what decisions are being made, how they’re being well made, and whether their interests are being well served...For a long time now, there’s been too much secrecy in this city. The old rules said that if there was a defensible argument for not disclosing something to the American people, then it should not be disclosed. That era is now over, starting today.”
Back in those early, heady days, Obama pledged that transparency would be a “touchstone” of his administration. Touchstone - noun - “a standard or criterion by which something is judged or recognized.” Three-and-a-half years later, it’s ignore, deny, scoff, then plead the fifth. Now if only we could get the Vice President to avail himself of his sacred right to remain silent... I’ll leave you with this juicy Politico quote on Obama’s track record on FOIA requests:
Obama is the sixth administration thats been in office since Ive been doing Freedom of Information Act work. Its kind of shocking to me to say this, but of the six, this administration is the worst on FOIA issues. The worst. Theres just no question about it, said Katherine Meyer, a Washington lawyer whos been filing FOIA cases since 1978. This administration is raising one barrier after another. Its gotten to the point where Im stunned Im really stunned.
