Well did we really need the AP to tell us this, we already knew that the Obama administration is the most non-transparent in American history.
(Conservative Tribune) Bombshell reporting by one of the world’s best-known news entities, the Associated Press, revealed that the Obama administration ranks worse than any other administration in history when it comes to being transparent and breaking the law.
“The Obama administration set a new record again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act,” the AP reported.
Sometimes the administration simply took an incredibly long time to turn over requested files. At other times the administration claimed that it was unable to find the files.
Even worse, the Obama administration on several occasions withheld or outright censored records for reasons that “were improper under the law” — or illegal for short.
Meanwhile, the backlog of unanswered requests grew by 55 percent last year, while the number of employees assigned to look for records fell by nine percent.
The administration also interfered with local police operations. During the Ferguson fiasco, for instance, the feds ordered local officers “to restrict airspace” and thus hide the violent race riots from news helicopters.
Federal officers also ordered various local police departments across the nation to remain quiet about an undercover telephone surveillance device known only as Stingray (H/T Western Journalism).
What all this means, argued the AP’s chief executive, Gary Pruitt, is that “the systems created to give citizens information about their government are badly broken and getting worse all the time.”
Herein lies the reason we as concerned citizens must remain ever vigilant of our own government, which the facts prove is constantly up to no good.
Here also is the reason why our legislators need to reign in the Obama administration, because nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the government should be in the business of committing crime.
