This president has to be the most narcissistic, pathological liar we’ve ever had serve in our lifetime! Once again he spewed nothing but lies the other day…this time it has to do with ‘transparency’ and his claim to all that his administration is the most transparent in history…I kid you not! – Simply another blatant, mind-boggling lie…but I guess he and his ilk are hoping the lies he blathers will satisfy the low-information voters. – Unfortunately, maybe it will.

Here’s the report. – This is via Free Beacon:

President Obama once again claimed his administration is the “most transparent in history” Thursday, despite lengthy record of failed reform and increased secrecy.

Obama was answering questions during a Google hangout when a woman questioned him on his promises of greater government transparency, noting things “feels a lot less transparent.”

“This is the most transparent administration in history,” Obama assured the woman. “I can document that this is the case.”

“Every visitor that comes into the White House is now part of the record,” Obama continued. “Just about every law that we pass and rule that we implement we put online for everyone to see.”

As extensively reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the Obama administration’s record on transparency has been a great source of disappointment to government watchdog groups and journalists.

The administration often points to the White House visitor logs as a tangible example of its commitment to transparency. However, emails revealed that lobbyists sometimes meet with senior White House staff in a Caribou Coffee cafe across the street from the executive mansion to avoid being included in the visitor logs.

The administration’s reforms to the Freedom of Information Act have also fallen short of its goals.

A government-wide audit performed by the National Security Archives in December found 62 of 99 federal agencies have not updated their FOIA regulations since Holder issued a 2009 memorandum instructing them to adopt a presumption in favor of disclosure.

The audit also revealed that 56 agencies have not updated their FOIA regulations since the passage of the OPEN Government Act of 2007, which mandated agencies retool their FOIA offices, including fee structures and reporting.

Holder has done little to implement his guidelines four years after issuing them, and his Justice Department has defended all agencies that chose to withhold information from the public, a report on FOIAproject.org found.

A Bloomberg investigation found that “19 of 20 cabinet-level agencies disobeyed the law requiring the disclosure of public information.”

“In all, just 8 of the 57 federal agencies met Bloomberg’s request for those documents within the 20-day window required by the Act,” Bloomberg reported in September 2012.

An August 2012 Washington Post analysis found that early freedom of information progress by the Obama administration “stalled and, in the case of most departments, reversed in direction.”

The number of FOIA requests denied in full due to exemptions rose more than 10 percent last year, to 25,636 from 22,834 the previous year, according to the Post’s analysis.

FOIA lawsuits have also risen under the Obama administration.

Outgoing Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson used a secret email address to conduct official business, a possible violation of FOIA laws.

The Obama administration has also prosecuted a record number of government whistleblowers and argued against journalistic privilege in court.

It has also jealously guarded the details of its targeted drone strikes, refusing to even acknowledge the existence of the program until recently. It repeatedly denied FOIA requests from the ACLU and the New York Times seeking information on the program.

“Obama is the sixth administration that’s been in office since I’ve been doing Freedom of Information Act work. … It’s kind of shocking to me to say this, but of the six, this administration is the worst on FOIA issues. The worst. There’s just no question about it,” Katherine Meyer, a Washington lawyer who’s been filing FOIA cases since 1978, told Politico in March. “This administration is raising one barrier after another. … It’s gotten to the point where I’m stunned—I’m really stunned.”

So folks, are you as ‘stunned‘ about this as Katerine Meyers says she is…or not?

    This is without a doubt the most annoying and dishonest administration that’s been active in my lifetime.

    As for the latest impact O’s made locally, the other day when he came to Atlanta all of the local broadcasting stations stopped programming to air live coverage of his airport arrival, his motorcade, his speech, and his departure even as Air Force One flew out of sight into the sky. The worship goes beyond hero worship. He’s truly considered the Messiah here.

    And now we know what he was here for: to get exposure on his latest plan, which is to federalized pre-school, ostensibly to provide “underprivileged” children with yet more aid and all children with yet more indoctrination. He wants to literally have them from cradle to grave, and the sheeple applaud.

    Sickening.

    • Yep…big brother knows best! Shrillary’s ‘It Takes A Village’ comes to mind. – The leftist have had it planned for decades now to take after places like France and start their indoctrination for our children as soon as they’re potty-trained, are able to walk and talk….how much earlier do they want control of our kids?

        You are exactly right, the brain dead that vote for obama do not spend any time checking out the facts, obama knows this so he just tells them this is the most transparent administration in history and they will believe it, which they will cause they are not looking for anything but a handout. he could tell them I did not have sex with that boy in the Chicago bath house and he would be believed.

        • Yep…even if we had video of him doing that, the msm would intentionally ignore it and the masses wouldn’t care one bit either way.

  3. I cannot put into words the contempt and revulsion I feel simply at the sound of his voice or any time his face appears on my TV. He is a compulsive liar of the worst part. But what is even worse is the morons in this Country that fell for it and re-elected this jerk

    He may be the President of the United States but he certainly is not MY President. He is an absolute joke and a major danger to this Country.

    Dr. Ben Carson for President!!!!

  4. a little off topic, but I recently saw something on cable about some of the stuff they found on bin laden’s computer, apparently osama wanted to kill Barry O. so that Biden would become president, and being too stupid to handle the job, would destroy the country. Sounds about right, but Barry is doing fine in that respect.

    • Barry is doing fine in that respect is right…and then some!

      I truly don’t think Biden would be as bad as Dear Leader and his marxist agenda…but, I could be wrong!

      Btw…thanks for that info.

        I don’t think Biden would be as bad as obama either because he could be easily manipulated by who ever was in his face at the time.

  5. I found this on Vince’s Worthwhile Website.

    This should indicate to the wise and shrewd amongst us that these Presidents are not elected, they are chosen. It is all to do with their bloodlines and nothing to do with their political position, prowess or intelligence.

    Obama is “The Teleprompter President” he isn’t even intelligent enough to string together sentences about his own political agenda. As it is, the apparent Kenyan, Obama, has been placed in power for the Brotherhoods secret agenda and not for democracy of the world council. Indeed Obama was chosen for the position of President, maybe later he will serve as the fall guy if the globalists New World Order plans don’t come together.

    With the massive cranial scars around the back of Obama’s head, it is suggested that his brain has been extracted via alien medical technology and tampered with anyway, the true Manchurian Candidate.

    It has even been suggested that he is not even the original Obama, but a clone that was engineered in an underground base with alien genetic technology. So therefore Obama will be carrying out the evil agendas of the Brotherhood, he personally has no say, he is just a controlled puppet.

  10. Everyone’s had 4+ years to observe BO’s style of brazen lying – accuse him of something and he comes back chastising the accuser with a big lie claiming the opposite of the accusation, but always in broad generalities. So having seen his predictable style, it would be relatively easy to be prepared with a factual follow-up to challenge the lie you know is coming.

    For example, the woman who said things “seem a lot less transparent” could have easily anticipated his answer. To which she could have followed up with the FOIA facts.

    Unfortunately, most of these people SOOO want to believe that BO is who they wanted him to be, that they are ready and willing to allow his lies to go unchallenged. And that obviously goes for the press as well.

    Black Official Wants Test Made Easier for Blacks; Likens Blacks to Athletes, Not Students

    By Selwyn Duke

    What do you think of this reasoning: If a given group doesn’t perform as well as other groups on a test, then the exam is by definition discriminatory and should be discarded? This is the rationale that was applied to police-department exams in the 1970s in a bizarre application of government civil-rights legislation. It was part of a social-engineering effort to get more women and minorities on police forces and is why we now have a diversity within the ranks that has given us, among other things, miniature cops. I’m not even kidding. Some years ago in New York City I saw a 12-year-old girl going to a costume party dressed as a police officer. Or at least I thought I did, until I got closer and realized she was a member of New York’s, uh, Finest.

    “‘We don’t do as well on these multiple-choice tests,’ said Capt. Otis Jordan, president of the Houston Black Firefighters Association. Jordan and the HBFA are not part of the suit. ‘I compare fighting a fire, riding an apparatus, to playing football. Your best athlete might not be the straight-A student.'”

    So, blacks don’t do as well with multiple choice . . . .

    Well, that explains why they filled out their ballots the way they did in November.

  12. I’ve never voted for any politician based on the color of his skin. I felt and feel no guilt about any politician of color who doesn’t win the election as I do not blame the loss on the color of their skin; however, I do place a lot of blame for Obama’s win on the color of his skin. The white Libs wanted to feel warm and fuzzy they had a hand in the first black dude as POTUS. Did any of these people take a serious look at what a failure he has been for the last 4 years. This administration is beyond corrupt. The Great Divider feels he is God and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it. I wish the real God would step forward and slap him down a couple of pegs but maybe God is just thinking this is what you get when you kick me out of schools, Christmas and whatever else you want to remove me from. You get the freaking devil. Dear God, I didn’t vote for him. Amen.

  13. May I just say what a relief to discover somebody who truly knows what they’re talking about online. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must check this out and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you surely have the gift.
