White House Set to Ignore Piers Morgan Petition 271212morgan

Given the fact that the Obama administration has failed to respond to dozens of petitions advocating states secede from the union, it seems almost inevitable that the White House will also ignore the petition to deport Piers Morgan for his rhetorical assault on the constitutional rights of American citizens.

The petition to deport Morgan for his call to disarm Americans in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, originated by Infowars, has garnered viral media attention and a total of over 80,000 signatures, well beyond the 25,000 threshold that mandates a White House response within 30 days.

However, a brief investigation into which petitions the Obama administration has actually responded to confirms that the White House merely cherry picks those it wishes to address and completely ignores others, violating its own rules.

For example, the petition for Texas to secede from the union reached the threshold to warrant a comment from the administration on November 12 but has still not been addressed 45 days later. Dozens of similar petitions from other states also passed the threshold but have been ignored, despite the total number of signatures for all states equaling well over a million.

In contrast, petitions calling on Obama to enact gun control measures in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre, only three of which totaled over 25,000 signatures, were addressed within days.

Other petitions that have received relatively few signatures, such as one calling to digitize federal records, have also been responded to despite getting nowhere near the 25,000 signature benchmark.

In October last year, the White House responded to a petition entitled, “Actually take these petitions seriously instead of just using them as an excuse to pretend you are listening,” with a post by ‘Special Assistant to the President’ Macon Phillips which asserted, “We’re listening. Seriously.”

However, the failure to respond to the overwhelmingly popular secession issue, while responding to others almost immediately, proves that the White House is merely abusing the ‘We The People’ process to bolster its own policy agenda while sidelining any issue that asks genuine questions of the Obama administration.

The administration is using delphi technique manipulation to hoodwink Americans into thinking they are an engaged part of the political discourse when in reality the whole petition process is a fraud because the White House only responds to what it wants to and ignores the questions that the majority of the American people want addressed.

The ‘We the People’ section of the White House website is billed as “your voice in our government,” and has been cited as another example of the government’s drive for “transparency,” yet it has been proven to be nothing more than just another public relations mouthpiece for the Obama administration to promote its own pre-planned political agenda.

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
