Outrage over White House no longer identifying visitors
« on: April 15, 2017, 04:13:22 AM »
It was OK when Hussein had all his terrorist pals over for brats and brewskis, so what's to worry about here from a billionaire who still has business dealings overseas...or has friends who do?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Breaking with the practice of President Donald Trump's predecessor, the White House is keeping secret the lists of visitors to the building.

The Trump administration cited privacy and national security concerns on Friday, but the decision angered government watchdog groups who accused Trump of reneging on his promise to "drain the swamp" in Washington. The groups see the visitor logs as important tools for monitoring which individuals or groups may be trying to influence White House policy. Trump has been widely criticized for a lack of openness in refusing to release his tax returns, breaking with decades of precedent.

Senior White House officials argued that the decision to keep the logs secret is in line with what previous administrations have done, except for President Barack Obama's, and that continuing Obama's practice of voluntarily releasing the records could interfere with policy development.

Although I personally think everyone who walks in and out of the White House should be known and logged.

It's very funny that liberals should shed a tear over this because it was their SCOTUS pick in Garland that ruled it was not part of the Freedom Of Information Act and now President Trump is taking advantage of his ruling.

It's funny how things work out in the long run. Trump doesn't seat Obama's pick in Garland then uses Garland's ruling to benefit him for what Obama wanted to do.

The democrats think eight years is forever when things work out for them and when it doesn't it needs to be stopped and stopped ASAP.

People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

Any businessman or politician that goes to the Whitehouse would be demonized and their businesses boycotted! Until the Libs and the lib Media grows up I think this is a smart move by the Administration. Trump has a Country to run and the childish games of the left are interfering with him! I fully understand this action! :angry:

They'll keep it hidden, the left will come up with all sorts of conspiracies, there will be lawsuits, the logs will be released and it will have all been about nothing.

It keeps Trump in the news.  He enjoys playing the MSM.  I can hear Trump saying on the back 9, what can I piss off the MSM with now.   :lol:
