TYRANNY IN THE HEADLINES: Obama ILLEGALLY Changes Freedom of Information Act

It is one thing to be able to look back on history and see how people fall into tyranny.  You may still wonder how people were so blind to what was happening, but you have the benefit of hind sight to help you see what they did not.  But it is another thing all together to see history as it is happening around you.  And another thing on top of that to understand what it means if and when you do happen to see it happening.  Well, we are witnessing the destruction of the United States Constitution, the rule of law and the last vestiges of mankind’s liberty and no one seems to care.  What am I talking about this time?  Yet another open act of lawlessness and tyranny by Obama.

Obama White House Quietly Amended Rules Regarding the Freedom of Information Act: Report

In a move that went little noticed in 2009, the White House quietly amended portions of the Freedom of Information Act, making it more difficult for Americans to request public documents for review.

The FOIA change came in an April 15, 2009, memo from then-White House Counsel Greg Craig,…

In the memo, Craig instructed the executive branch to let Obama administration officials review all documents sought under FOIA requests to determine if said documents involved “White House equities.”

However, nowhere in the FOIA does it say that White House officials can withhold certain documents for further review, meaning that the Obama administration effectively altered the law to justify burying public documents, the Washington Examiner notes.


The FOIA does not provide for the President or anyone else in the Executive to ‘change it’ without Congressional approval.  That means that Obama broke the law – again.  This is yet another in a growing string of impeachable acts committed by this tyrant we call ‘President.’

This change only went ‘unnoticed’ because the Congress refuses to perform its Constitutional duty of over watch, or to file articles of impeachment and try this criminal in the Senate.  They are too consumed by fear of impeaching a black man, or they are in favor of this sort of lawlessness because they hope to be able to sue it should they ever manage to gain power for themselves.

And then there is the media, which is in bed with this tyrant so it doesn’t bother to even look for these sorts of blazon acts of open tyranny.  The ‘media’ ceased being the press a long time ago.  Anymore, ‘main stream media’ means ‘government controlled propaganda’ and most Americans know it.   It would seem the only ones ignorant of this fact are those in the media, themselves.

It is a sad thing to see this nation torn apart, but sadder still to know that my countrymen put this man in a position where he could tear it apart.  He is a Marxist, and he said he hated this nation as it was founded.  He told us he intended to re-make it according to his personal desires.  Yet, my fellow Americans elected him anyway.  This can only be because their greed for Obama’s promises to give them something someone else earned was more important to them than their own freedom.  And to think that these same people would be the first to bring up race and the specter of slavery if anyone tried to do anything about Obama’s lawlessness.

All of this amounts to a shattering of Natural Law and the Social Contract.  There is no way our society can survive what we are doing to it.  But then, this is how people find themselves in a nation that supports leaders who throw people in concentration camps – like we did under Democrat Woodrow Wilson and Democrat FDR…

    1. Kells,

      If congress is going to let him get away with this, what else has he done we do not know about, and what else could he do that congress would also ignore? I mean, he’s already ‘given’ himself permission to assassinate American citizens — and then done it, and more than once. So, seriously, what CAN’T he do?

      1. I put it on the twitter….so that one person following me could read it. Seriously, I shared it with Adam Baldwin….hope he pays attention. I didn’t know about this FOIA debacle…..

        1. Kells,

          Why is this act of open tyranny any different from the others? Obama violated U.S> bankruptcy law over the GM/Chrysler bailouts. He violated the law when he extorted $2 billion from BP. He continues to violate the ACA by altering deadlines and issuing exemptions. He gave himself permission to assassinate American citizens — then did so. I mean, hey, — seriously — exactly how is he any different from Hitler in the 1930’s?
