Is not what a reasonable person understands. We must always keep this in mind.
It is my understanding that yesterday there was an executive order issued by Obama, whereby release of presidential records will have to be authorised by the attorney general. My feeling is that Obama knows that Judge Carter is not for sale, that the motion to dismiss the complaint will be denied by judge Carter and he is gearing up for the stand of[f].
On his first day in office, January 21, 2009, President Obama signed Executive Order 13489 related to presidential records maintained by the National Archives & Records Agency. The Executive Order, by revoking Executive Order 13233 of President George W. Bush, which limited access to records of former presidents by revoking Executive Order 12667 issued by President Ronald Reagan. That 1989 Executive Order 12667 had been in effect throughout the terms of Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. President Obama, with his action, essentially made the records of past presidents easier to access than in the Bush II administration.
Somehow or other, this translated to President Obama “sealing” his own records.
With me so far?
Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. now takes that conspiracy and shifts it to a new stage, to suit her paranoid delusions and those of her followers.
The Obama administration on Wednesday announced a new policy making it much more difficult for the government to claim that it is protecting state secrets when it hides details of sensitive national security strategies such as rendition and warrantless eavesdropping.
The new policy requires agencies, including the intelligence community and the military, to convince the attorney general and a team of Justice Department lawyers that the release of sensitive information would present significant harm to “national defense or foreign relations.” In the past, the claim that state secrets were at risk could be invoked with the approval of one official and by meeting a lower standard of proof that disclosure would be harmful.
That claim was asserted dozens of times during the Bush administration, legal scholars said.
The shift could have a broad effect on many lawsuits, including those filed by alleged victims of torture and electronic surveillance. Authorities have frequently argued that judges should dismiss those cases at the outset to avoid the release of information that could compromise national security.
Not only did the Executive Order in January not “seal” the President’s personal records, it did not affect his own presidential records, one way or another, at least as long as he is in office; it had nothing to do with Birther lawsuits, and made presidential history easier to access. Now there is not even an Executive Order involved that I can see, but a policy change regarding National Security, having nothing to do with Birther lawsuits, having nothing to do with presidential records, which again potentially opens more records that would have been closed without the change.
Either Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. sincerely misunderstands; or her narcissism prevents her from seeing that every damned thing the government does is not about her; or she will stop at nothing to keep her lunatic conspiracy freak Birfer nation on the boil.
Seriously, does anyone, anyone sane, that is, think Judge Carter is going to view a change in state secrets access as a plot against the plaintiffs in Barnett v. Obama?
