All three branches of government are now against the people


President Obama and his successors in the Oval Office are not obligated to make public the names of individuals visiting the White House, according to a decision of the federal Circuit Court for the District of Columbia made public Friday.

The case was brought by Judicial Watch, the government watchdog nonprofit that has been fighting a long legal battle seeking to force release of the White House visitor logs as public records under the Freedom of Information Act.

But in a decision that is drawing intense criticism from across the ideological spectrum, the circuit court said the president has a "constitutional perogative" not to tell the American people who he or his staff meets with in the White House. More here:

Ha ha.  The fair and objective court ... comes up with a "justification" for keeping the White House visitors log a secret from the people.  When is the last time a court took the side of the people instead of the side of the government?

The courts are there to protect the people from outrageous government over-reaching.  But what are they doing?  They are handing your money and liberty to the government.  And there's nothing you can do about it.
