Secret Government Law Still Pervasive Despite Public Outcry: Report

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

In the wake of 9/11, the U.S. government began creating what has now become an "unprecedented buildup" of secret laws, and even the recent public backlash against them has not stopped widespread use of covert rules that impact Americans' everyday lives without their knowledge, according to a new report from the Brennan Center for Justice.

Big Brother is watching all of us and Hillary and Obama are enabling them to continue their unconstitutional operations.


#3

So this is what nearly eight years of "the most transparent administration in history" looks like ?


#4

Government primarily serves the oligarchy. Our tax revenues go to spying on ourselves, making war to sell weapons and maintaining millionaire politicians in office. The people pay taxes so the rich won't have to.

No taxation without representation.

Politicians must be abolished. Replace them with monkeys or with a computer.

In the wake of 9/11 EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED. It sure has!


#10

Remember when the Obama admin was going to be the most transparent in history. But it really is the deep state calling the shots.


#13

Don't tell Obama that. He'll drone your ass. He and Clinton are two of the most secretive, covert office holders we have. These two have flaunted the law, transparency and decency so many times it looks as though they would happily do away with the constitution if they could, make no mistake, they're working on it.

And their supporters cling to issues like "safe spaces" and Trump's buffoonery to insist on their liberalism, while treating most of the rest of the world as inconsequential cheap labor or collateral damage. They condemn Islamophobia but don't give a rat's ass about the Muslims we've killed overseas; the concern ends at the border.


#15

You got that right. We have to remember the Dems and Repubs are almost the same, excpet for the wedge issues. So Dems only have to give the impression they are liberal, they rarely follow through, as we've seen with Obama.


#21

Your new style is less cryptic and more readable. Nice.


#22

If secret laws are going to be the flavour of the decade, then ignorance of the law has to become a valid defense for breaking it!


#23

But only if you are a Wall Street CEO or a member of the government (in high places).
