Parts of the White House and a Senate office building were evacuated on Tuesday after telephoned bomb threats.
The White House press briefing room was evacuated just a few hours after parts of the Senate’s Dirksen office building were emptied by security guards. No threats were found at the US congressional complex, and an “all clear” has been declared at the White House.
The live televised White House briefing was in progress when security agents asked attendees to leave the building. Upon resuming the briefing, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said a bomb threat was made against the briefing room in a phone call made to the Washington Metropolitan Police Department.
A Secret Service spokesman said the evacuation was “limited to the White House Briefing Room and does not affect any other sections of the White House”. Cameras were left running after the evacuation and agents could be seen directing bomb-sniffing dogs through the room. After members of the press were evacuated, Secret Service agents and K9 units did a sweep of the briefing room, and found nothing suspicious. During this sweep, all live network cameras were turned to the ceiling, or floor, or covered completely with newspaper. West Wing of the White House. Notwithstanding claims of being the most transparent administration ever, the White House now says that an executive branch office is exempt from United States Freedom of Information Act requests effective immediately.
As of Tuesday, the Office of Administration will no longer have to heed FOIA requests — the likes of which had for decades helped explain the inner workings of White House functions — according to a notice published in the Federal Register this week. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said it “boggles the mind” that the White House has not yet released the text of trade deal it’s pushing, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership TPP The office of the presidency was greatly strengthened under previous administrations, but now Barack Obama has grabbed an unprecedented amount of power for himself. In this article, I am going to focus on immigration, but Obama’s power grab is certainly not limited to this area. And as I have written aboutpreviously, if there is some sort of major “national emergency” over the next year or so, the legal framework has already been created for Obama to use his “emergency powers” to take total control of virtually everything. So is comparing Obama to the pharoahs of ancient Egypt unfair? I don’t think so at all. He is certainly acting as if he would like the powers of a dictator, his policies in the Middle East would make the pharoahs proud, and without a doubt Obama loves the adoration and worship of his fans. In my opinion, he is the closest thing to a pharoah that the United States has ever seen. American Pharoah just won the Triple Crown.
