Vitter: EPA FOIA scandal ‘no different than the IRS disaster’

“Shortly after the IRS admitted to targeting conservative groups, it was reported that the EPA has routinely denied fee waiver requests from conservative groups seeking government records, while at the same time, approving such requests to environmental groups.”

  1. Senator Vitter is correct that both the FOIA/EPA issue and the IRA scrutiny of “conservative” groups are meant to reduce participation by voices that the Obama adminstration wants to subdue and the methods have had at least some success.

  2. Mr. Obama deserves major “credit” for promoting the most highly partisan government in my lifetime–perhaps ever. He never misses an opportunity to disparage and demonizer his opposition and glorify himself and his sycophants. Having sown such polarization, he should now begin to reap its rewards.

  3. Sad to say, but I can’t stand to hear him speak. Anybody notice he has a sibillant “S” at the end of any word ending in S?

  4. ABUSE OF POWER
    Now maybe all will understand the importance of restoring the ORIGINAL Constitution and it’s intents and meanings as of the time it was adopted. None of the laws passed or the Precedent case law created using the usurped powers has any effect in law. They by the nature of the usurpation are null and void because the usurpers did not have Constitutional power to change alter or create new rights or find new meaning to the various sections, clauses and amendments.

    Any violation of oath of office by way of usurpation of power is the gravest of civic offenses. It is “treasonable usurpation upon the power and majesty of the people,” as Alexander Hamilton correctly characterized any flouting of the people’s fundamental law. (“letters of Phocion,” 1784: regarding violation of the New York Constitution.) Any usurpation “is criminal and odious” as declared by President John Quincy Adams in his first annual Message to Congress 1825. Such condemnation of usurpation-either by misusing granted power, or by grasping power which has not been granted-is in keeping with the Federalist’s denunciation of this most heinous offense by any public official as a defaulting public trustee, including especially any and every Judge because especially charged with the particular duty of enforcing respect in practice of this basic law. (all from a book by Hamilton Abert Long).

    So as you can surmise the Congress and the Courts are usurpers as they have created new laws where none existed and new rights where none had been before. So, if they usurped the powers and actions the actions and right are hereby voided in the real law.
