"Unauthorized disclosures of classified documents (whether in print, on a blog or on websites) do not alter the documents' classified status or automatically result in declassification of the documents," the OMB said.
"To the contrary, classified information, whether or not already posted on public websites or disclosed to the media, remains classified, and must be treated as such by federal employees and contractors, until it is declassified by an appropriate US government authority."

Arizona rancher murdered by illegal immigrant
"Three days ago, Napolitano told an audience at Arizona State University that the border is more secure than ever," said Tancredo. "I challenge her-no I dare her to come to this community and try to sell that lie. The residents here know better."
... The Arizona rancher waged a 10-year battle against thousands of illegal immigrants who crossed into the country and onto his property. When Barrett stopped 16 Mexican Nationals at gunpoint on his land, the ACLU stepped in and brought a civil rights lawsuit against the Arizona rancher.
Local law enforcement officers refer to Barrett’s ranch as the “avenue of choice” for illegal immigrants to enter America illegally. Barrett put up with property damage, death of livestock and numerous home invasions.
The ACLU claimed in the lawsuit against Barrett that he inflicted emotional distress by holding the migrants at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose and shooting anyone who attempted to escape.
The Arizona rancher lost his case....
Use the money to buy guns and ammo. While we still can.

Sorry I'm going to E-Bay now to sell all my books before the bonfire starts.
The President can create laws by executive order which can later be approved or revoked by congress. If congress takes no action, the "law" or order is "approved". This ruling seems to affect only the executive branch though, and as head of the executive branch he can promulgate rules for them. As to whether this ruling is legal or not is certainly open to debate.

You have t forgive my ignorance, but since when can the President create and pass laws? What is the Congress for then?
Exactly. It is time, past time for the people to take back some of our power. We have let too much slide through our fingers due to lack of diligence, not to say pure laziness.

Basically, we have a government that was created with a system of checks and balances that no longer checks and balances itself and will do everything to make sure people are blind to the fact. Great.
