Vid: Dem Rep Holmes Norton Tells House Oversight Committee: 'You Don't Have A Right To Know' What's Going On In Your Govt."

If you're OK with this Totalitarian Piece of Work, . . . . and her office clogging partisans, . . . Otherwise, the midterms are here. 


Remember when the Obama Administration was meant to serve as the model for how a transparent government is supposed to operate? That promise of “hope’n’change” has produced the most secretive government administrations in the history of this nation.

To add insult to injury, the Democrats have continually fought to defend the president’s violations, abuses and secrecy with a hubris not seen in government since the days of King Louis XVI.
On Friday, Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional representative for the District of Columbia, defended the Obama Administration angrily as she declared that Americans have no right to know what goes on in their government. 
“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton claimed during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing. 
Allow me to make this clear: A Democrat representative told the House Oversight Committee that they have no right to scrutinize government. The committee, as the name would suggest, is responsible for overseeing the federal government as a check against abuses of power.
What Norton seems to have confused is that it is the very principle of scrutiny that defines a government that is equipped with a separation of powers. Each branch of government checks the power of the other branches of government.
It’s amazing that America possesses even one citizen who would believe such an obvious falsehood; it’s even more outrageous that America has a representative in Congress who believes this.

Thank You TPNN.
