    THE WHITE HOUSE
    Office of the Press Secretary

    For Immediate Release
    January 21, 2009

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 13489

    - - - - - - -

    PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS
    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to establish policies and procedures governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and former Presidents in connection with the release of Presidential records by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) pursuant to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, it is hereby ordered as follows:

    Section 1. Definitions. For purposes of this order:

          (a) "Archivist" refers to the Archivist of the United States or his designee.

          (b) "NARA" refers to the National Archives and Records Administration.

          (c) "Presidential Records Act" refers to the Presidential Records Act, 44 U.S.C. 2201-2207.

          (d) "NARA regulations" refers to the NARA regulations implementing the Presidential Records Act, 36 C.F.R. Part 1270.

          (e) "Presidential records" refers to those documentary materials maintained by NARA pursuant to the Presidential Records Act, including Vice Presidential records.

          (f) "Former President" refers to the former President during whose term or terms of office particular Presidential records were created.

          (g) A "substantial question of executive privilege" exists if NARA's disclosure of Presidential records might impair national security (including the conduct of foreign relations), law enforcement, or the deliberative processes of the executive branch.

          (h) A "final court order" is a court order from which no appeal may be taken.

    Sec. 2. Notice of Intent to Disclose Presidential Records. (a) When the Archivist provides notice to the incumbent and former Presidents of his intent to disclose Presidential records pursuant to section 1270.46 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist, using any guidelines provided by the incumbent and former Presidents, shall identify any specific materials, the disclosure of which he believes may raise a substantial question of executive privilege. However, nothing in this order is intended to affect the right of the incumbent or former Presidents to invoke executive privilege with respect to materials not identified by the Archivist. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative.

    (b) Upon the passage of 30 days after receipt by the incumbent and former Presidents of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Archivist may disclose the records covered by the notice, unless during that time period the Archivist has received a claim of executive privilege by the incumbent or former President or the Archivist has been instructed by the incumbent President or his designee to extend the time period for a time certain and with reason for the extension of time provided in the notice. If a shorter period of time is required under the circumstances set forth in section 1270.44 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist shall so indicate in the notice.

    Sec. 3. Claim of Executive Privilege by Incumbent President. (a) Upon receipt of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Attorney General (directly or through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel) and the Counsel to the President shall review as they deem appropriate the records covered by the notice and consult with each other, the Archivist, and such other executive agencies as they deem appropriate concerning whether invocation of executive privilege is justified.

    (b) The Attorney General and the Counsel to the President, in the exercise of their discretion and after appropriate review and consultation under subsection (a) of this section, may jointly determine that invocation of executive privilege is not justified. The Archivist shall be notified promptly of any such determination.

    (c) If either the Attorney General or the Counsel to the President believes that the circumstances justify invocation of executive privilege, the issue shall be presented to the President by the Counsel to the President and the Attorney General.

   (d) If the President decides to invoke executive privilege, the Counsel to the President shall notify the former President, the Archivist, and the Attorney General in writing of the claim of privilege and the specific Presidential records to which it relates. After receiving such notice, the Archivist shall not disclose the privileged records unless directed to do so by an incumbent President or by a final court order.

    Sec. 4. Claim of Executive Privilege by Former President. (a) Upon receipt of a claim of executive privilege by a living former President, the Archivist shall consult with the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel), the Counsel to the President, and such other executive agencies as the Archivist deems appropriate concerning the Archivist's determination as to whether to honor the former President's claim of privilege or instead to disclose the Presidential records notwithstanding the claim of privilege. Any determination under section 3 of this order that executive privilege shall not be invoked by the incumbent President shall not prejudice the Archivist's determination with respect to the former President's claim of privilege.

    (b) In making the determination referred to in subsection (a) of this section, the Archivist shall abide by any instructions given him by the incumbent President or his designee unless otherwise directed by a final court order. The Archivist shall notify the incumbent and former Presidents of his determination at least 30 days prior to disclosure of the Presidential records, unless a shorter time period is required in the circumstances set forth in section 1270.44 of the NARA regulations. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative.

    Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

          (i) authority granted by law to a department or agency, or the head thereof; or

          (ii) functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budget, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    Sec. 6. Revocation. Executive Order 13233 of November 1, 2001, is revoked.

                BARACK OBAMA

    THE WHITE HOUSE,

          January 21, 2009.

Once you're informed though, you KNOW what he's hiding.


But could there possibly be anything that we don't know about that he could be hiding?

Here we see how the usurper is doing away with public oversight and is transforming our Country into a second North Korea. This guy has to be removed asap. We cannot afford having the abuse continue as every day enormous damage is being done; the longer it goes on the harder it will be to repair.

From the Executive Order text:

Upon receipt of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Attorney General (directly or through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel) and the Counsel to the President shall review as they deem appropriate the records covered by the notice and consult with each other, the Archivist, and such other executive agencies as they deem appropriate concerning whether invocation of executive privilege is justified.

(b) The Attorney General and the Counsel to the President, in the exercise
of their discretion and after appropriate review and consultation under subsection

(a) of this section, may jointly determine that invocation of executive
privilege is not justified. The Archivist shall be notified promptly of any
such determination.

(And no, I didn’t switch the B and A around .. it was like that in the order - so much for attention to detail or were we a bit rushed to do this at the time?)

What this says, is that only the Attorney General and Council to the President, are able to review records’ requests and determine if they can be made public or not.

Did you know Eric Holder is a personal close-friend of Obama’s? Eric Holder was even on his campaign when usurping for Presidency. Eric has stated himself that he shares Obama’s same views on the “World” and “Race”.

In effect, what this order does is over-turn the previous executive order by Bush, that Presidential records can be made publicly availabe through the Freedom of Information Act.

Why has this not been brought up before, why is it we are terrorists for not wanting the government to know every detail of our lives, but the damn figure head of our government that the people allegedly elected, can pass an executive order making it a crime for his electors to have access to his records?  Why has this gone almost unnoticed, people should be making a huge deal of this.
Thinking like the gov't, only somebody who had something to hide would want privacy... What does Barry have to hide, besides the obvious(obviously the birther issues are just crazy racist conspiracy theories, so he must be hiding that he isn't really he at all but a trans sexual- she's the first female president and was enrolled in college as Sherry Soetoro.)

Media/Gov Cover Story:

http://historycoalition.org/2009/01/21/president-obama-revokes-bush-presidential-records-executive-order/

President Obama Revokes Bush Presidential Records Executive Order (updated Jan. 26)

On January 21, in one of his first official acts, President Barack Obama revoked the Bush administration’s Executive Order 13233 that severely limited access by the public to presidential records. Click here to see a copy of President Obama’s new Executive Order 13489.

President Obama firmly committed his administration to a new policy of transparency by symbolically issuing the executive order on his first full day in office. The issuance of the Obama presidential records executive order ends a nearly eight year effort by historians, archivists, political scientists and other stakeholders in federal courts and on Capitol Hill to have the Bush EO revoked on legal grounds or by statute.

****

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/joseph-a-palermo/president-obama-opens-up_b_160224.html

"Executive Order 13233 of November 1, 2001, is revoked."

That simple line that concludes President Barack Obama's "Presidential Records" Executive Order of January 21, 2009 is music to the ears of any historian or journalist who wishes access to presidential records. It's the first blow (and hopefully not the last) against the regimen of secrecy and contempt for the public's right to know that characterized the Bush administration. Researchers will no longer face Bush-era stonewalling and obstacles when seeking public records. It's a long-awaited opening for truth and reconciliation and Obama showed wisdom and good judgment in taking this step on day one of his presidency. I cannot begin to convey my appreciation that we now have a president who clearly recognizes the need for candor and openness to help historians keep the record straight.

***

Remember when Obama released Bush's secret memos and all the uproar--planned cover spin to show Obama being so transparent--NOT!
http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/2009/03/bushs-secret-memos-out-in-open-by-obama.html

What Obama had really done is altered the Executive Order to make his Counsel and his Attorney General the ones who decided what got to be released and what didn't in the Freedom of Information Act.

Again, this is what is key to the revised FOIA

(b) The Attorney General and the Counsel to the President, in the exercise
of their discretion and after appropriate review and consultation under subsection

(a) of this section, may jointly determine that invocation of executive
privilege is not justified. The Archivist shall be notified promptly of any
such determination.

(And no, I didn’t switch the B and A around .. it was like that in the order - so much for attention to detail or were we a bit rushed to do this at the time?)

What this says, is that only the Attorney General and Council to the President, are able to review records’ requests and determine if they can be made public or not.

So Obama can over-ride a FOIA request, if he so chooses.
If Obama's records could be made available with FOIA--then Phil Berg and many other attorneys would have their hands on them.

All executive orders can be overturned by a 2/3 vote of congress.

Not that is will happen with this group.

No, an “existing” new, democratic, liberal, extremist, Marxist, socialist president overturned precedent - and is now hiding - without media objection of course! - what a previous republican president RELEASED voluntarily.

Of course, this open and transparent White House is simply going back to Hillary’s concealment and dishonesty policies of the PREVIOUS democrat presidency.

This is the information that the Media needs to have put in their face. The fact that he is hiding behind his own Executive order signed on Jan 21, 2009.

What would have happened if George Bush would have signed an order like this!

This is totally outrageous and needs to be put out in public to see that Obama is hinding behind his own made up rules.

We the people deserve to know the truth.

Marmion is an epic poem by Walter Scott about the Battle of Flodden Field (1513) that was published in 1808.

One of the most famous quotations in English poetry is derived from Canto VI, XVII:

Oh, what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!

In my opinion, What Oboma has released as his original Certificate of live Birth is a basic short form given to foreign born (and foreign adoption) infants. I believe Obomas mother brought the child in for a U.S. certificate, but because he was born in another country months earlier, she was given a basic short form that proves nothing but the fact that the child had been born.

Hawaii law allows an adult to alter, or amended, the birth records a hospital has on file. The original is still filed, but an amended version is created. The adult is allowed to alter information such as birth date, father, nation of birth, etc., provided they have documentation to prove what is being altered is true. BUT, with a foreign born infant, the entire birth record is considered "assumed". Because everything is "assumed", so are the alterations. No proof is then necessary for the amendment. The amended foreign born certificate, or foreign born adoption certificate, is not legally valid as proof of natural U.S. citizenship because the missing information.

I would think an amended document would also require a date indicating the day of the amendment. Maybe a stamp on the back of the document for the records.

Description of foreign born adoption - basic short form
(http://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/hrscurrent/Vol06_Ch0321-0344/HRS0338/HRS_0338-0020_0005.htm)

I believe Obomas has no long, natural born Certificate of Live Birth to provide. I believe all he has are forgin born formats: original forign born, adoptive forign born, and ammended forign born.

One of the areas that Obama has successfully covered up is the year as head of the Harvard Law Review. It's a little unbelievable that Obama never wrote a single legal review as the head of the Law Review. That's what they do, review laws. Someone knows what he produced.

What no one has been able to uncover is what Obama did as a student at Columbia College. Columbia College is a separate divisin of Columbia university, an unstructured degree program where the students can more or less devise their own curriculum and sign a contract to complete it. It seems as though Obama never attended any classes at Columbia and may have spent the two years in Pakistan. No one from Columbia ever saw him in a class or on campus.

Had he received any U.S. taxpayer funding for his education? If so, it seems as though the freedom of information act would allow us to find out where our tax dollars were spent. Did any of our tax dollars go for foreign student assistance under any of Obomas three identities? How much, how long, and to what campus organizations?

William Ayres was living one block from the Columbia College campus at the time that Obama was supposed to have been in school there, but we don’t know if they ever met. We don’t even know where Obama lived while he was supposed to be at school at Columbia College.

Obama's first act as President EXECUTIVE ORDER 13489 banning release of any of his records

Only a natural born American president, Constitutionally, has the authority to give this order. Under what authority was this done? Because there are no available documents to show this authority, can this legally be done? The order should be considered null and void until the authority to do so is verified.

If Harvard is aiding and abetting a Constututional illegality, wouldn't they be held liable if this turns out to be the case? How sure are they about what they're doing?

I read somewhere here that the year(s) that Obama said he went to Pakistan, it was on a boycotted “no-travel” list for U.S. citizens.

Oops - my mistake. Turns out travel to Pakistan was NOT banned in 1981:

US State Department Travel Advisory for Pakistan in 1981, No. 81-33A

“Before traveling to Pakistan, American Citizens should be aware of the following updated visa requirements: 30 day visas are available at Pakistani airports for tourists only. As these visas are rarely extended beyond the 30 day time per visa. Tourists planning to stay longer should secure visas before coming to Pakistan. Any traveler coming into Pakistan overland from India must repeat must have a valid visa, as 30 day visas are not repeat not issued at the overland border crossing point at Wagha.”

I heard something on the radio a few days ago about some of Obama’s records from Occidental College being released under freedom of information act that indicated that he had applied for and received student aid (financial aid) as a foreign student. This type of aid was only abailable to foreigh born students......

That was an April Fools prank. There's been no such release.

This type of aid was only abailable to foreigh born students......

Because it was so hard for a black college student to get student aid in the 1980s. Seriously, if you had your choice to apply for a scholarship or student aid in 1979, do you really think you'd be better off as a foreign student than as a black American student?

notice how, at the time, this wasn’t even on the radar because he also signed the order to close Gitmo and that had every news cycle covering that issue and ignoring this.

The truth can't hide forever."

A man named Frank Marshall Davis, a black activist back in the late 50's, had an affair with a young 15 year old girl named Ann. The activist was married at the time. There were no abortion laws back, so imagine what would have happened to a 40 some year old black activist who knocked up a 15 year old white teenager back in those days. If I were Frank Marshall, I'd get her out of town, or even ship her off to Kenya, A.S.A.P.

It is overwhelmingly agreed it was Marshall who took the nude photos of Obomas mother we see on the Internet today. The photographer was referred to as "Frank", and the pictures are in front of his home.

Oboma not only has his family life to hide, I can just imagine some of the left wing activist groups and foreign organizations he was or is associated with. If Davis is indeed his father, I wouldn't doubt Oboma has deep ties with the Black Panthers, and the associated activities could have a history tied to his college years.

There's no logical reason for him to be ashamed of going to Columbia and being proud of what he's accomplished. There's no reason to be ashamed of his American birth records, either. Is he not proud to have been able to enter a prestigious American University? Is he not proud to have been born an American?

Don’t waste your time publishing your thoughts. They don’t matter and just add noise. All we need to focus on is asking for proof that 0 satisfies Article II, Section I, Cl. 5 of the Constitution.

That’s OK. On his third day in office - with nothing else of importance going on, Obama remembered to send a personal letter of congratulations to his hospital in Hawaii - but sent it to the wrong hospital.

(Well, at least a different hospital than what he earlier had claimed - so maybe it was sent to the right hospital in HI.)

Your interpretation of what Obama was trying to do is completely wrong. This Executive Order was his much heralded show of transparency. It revokes an earlier order made by Bush at the end of his term that was intended to cover his (Bush's) tracks. 0 added clauses to permit him or Bush to use executive privilege to prevent records not to be made public as requested. (0 has used those clauses many times since he signed the Order. Please get your facts straight before spreading alarm!

The Executive Order you are talking about does exactly the opposite of what you say it does. In addition, it revokes Executive Order 13233 that G.W. Bush signed into law at the beginning of his first term and kept presidential records secret for 12 years, which was conveniently long enough to keep the records from his father G.H. Bush’s presidency under wraps until the end of G. W’s first term.

It’s boilerplate, but changes the details. Read #37 and #42

Witness the diabolical and cunning evil of these cretins.

By this EO, they even prevented Pres. Bush and/or any former President from revealing any information they knew about him, his father, his eligibility, passports, etc., as well as any future President, who may come across pertinent information!

~~~~

"governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and *former Presidents*"

"g) A "substantial question of executive privilege" exists if NARA's disclosure of Presidential records might impair national security (including the conduct of foreign relations), law enforcement, or the deliberative processes of the executive branch."

"Sec. 2. Notice of Intent to Disclose Presidential Records. (a) When the Archivist provides notice to the incumbent and former Presidents of his intent to disclose Presidential records pursuant to section 1270.46 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist, using any guidelines provided by the incumbent and former Presidents, shall identify any specific materials, the disclosure of which he believes may raise a substantial question of executive privilege."

"However, nothing in this order is intended to affect the right of the incumbent or former Presidents to invoke executive privilege with respect to materials not identified by the Archivist. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative."
