No. YOU try to follow along.
The United States is not a party to this action.
"This case is not a complex piece of corporate litigation. It is, instead, a common-law tort
action in which all of the parties are individuals and few material facts, if any, are subject to
dispute. Despite the relative simplicity of this action, plaintiff and defendant O’Connor have
issued extremely broad and burdensome third-party document subpoenas to USDA and EOP that seek, in the aggregate, 83 categories of documents that are irrelevant to this litigation. They have also announced their intention to issue third-party deposition subpoenas to a total of five current officials of USDA and have reserved the right to issue third-party deposition subpoenas to an unlimited number of additional federal officials. By doing these things, plaintiff and defendant O’Connor have triggered “‘the government’s serious and legitimate concern that its employee resources not be commandeered into service by private litigants to the detriment of the smooth functioning of government operations.’” For that reason, the United States should not be required to respond to any of the third-party subpoenas that plaintiff and defendant O’Connor have issued or propose to issue to it in this action."

So? Still does not give the FEDs the right to stonewall. They are obliged to follow a court order. What kind of country do you think we live in?
No. They have no such obligation.

STATUS CONFERENCE
MEMORANDUM OF THE UNITED
STATES

"Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 45(d)(1) provides that “[a] party or attorney responsible
for issuing and serving a subpoena must take reasonable steps to avoid imposing undue burden or expense on a person subject to the subpoena.” The “‘undue burden’ standard” of Rule 45(d)(1) causes “‘concern for the unwanted burden thrust upon non-parties” to be a “‘factor entitled to special weight’” in determining the enforceability of third-party subpoenas. "

That concern is at its zenith where, as here, third-party subpoenas are directed to the United States. In such cases, the court “must properly accommodate ‘the government’s serious and legitimate concern that its employee resources not be commandeered into service by private litigants to the detriment of the smooth functioning of government operations.’” Id.(quoting Exxon Shipping Co. v. Dep’t of the Interior, 34 F.3d 774, 779 (9tCir. 1994))"

Accordingly, the burdens imposed on EOP by overbroad discovery demands like the third-party subpoena that defendant O’Connor has issued to EOP are an especially “important factor” weighing heavily against their enforcement.” Id. at 385. Avoiding those burdens is sufficiently important that the United States is permitted to challenge discovery demands issued to EOP without “invoking executive privilege with sufficient specificity” or making other “particularized objections.” Id. at 388.

And...... the Left skips along oblivious fussing about Hobby Lobby
Ya think? D'ya really think we're losing (sp) our "status" as "the most powerful country in the world?" Really? After two pointless invasions and sixty years of losing fights we started ourselves or to benefit the oil industry, you JUST noticed we're not the champs anymore? So who are the champs? I mean, in your opinion... I trust your opinion because... well... I just looked into your eyes and I was SURE you - of all people - would know the truth when it's just gone RIGHT OVER everybody else's head.... YOU DID IT, MORON! IT'S YOUR PEOPLE WHO BLEW IT. Duh!

"falsifying" is a legal term
If agencies were all to be sued for failing to include everything-we would have very few left
Your final attempt to cover up your lack of logic by adding an illogical slur is really clueless
You people are a piece of work. No wonder no one feels republicans can be trusted.

Falsify: to change (something) in order to make people believe something that is not true.

Libel: A published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation; a written defamation.

FACT: Breitbart "edited" the video to make people believe something that was not true then he posted a false statement which damaged Shirley Sherrod's reputation.

Breitbart:

"In the first video, Sherrod describes how she racially discriminates against a white farmer. She describes how she is torn over how much she will choose to help him. And, she admits that she doesn't do everything she can for him, because he is white. Eventually, her basic humanity informs that this white man is poor and needs help. But she decides that he should get help from "one of his own kind". She refers him to a white lawyer.

Sherrod's racist tale is received by the NAACP audience with nodding approval and murmurs of recognition and agreement. Hardly the behavior of the group now holding itself up as the supreme judge of another groups' racial tolerance."

GUILTY!!!

The U.S. already spends more on war (they like to call it defense, but when's the last time you ever saw the U.S. military ever fight a defensive action?) than the ten most powerful nations in the world combined including china and RUSSIA. In spite of our eclipse as the "World's Most Powerful Nation" we seem to be chugging along at the edges of the championships even if we never built another ship. plane, or missile.

China's the new bogeyman? Russia's back? Germany probably is building underground invasion plans as we speak! Don't make me laugh (I'm not laughing.) There aren't any more "superpowers" so there are NO BOGEYMEN!" But I understand, you need someone, something to personify and make real your fear. Well, here I AM, honies... lay your angst on me!

Hey, um, what do you "win" for being the "Most Powerful Nation?" A booby prize?

Who caused the damage or harm? Her employer based on edited video. It seems to me there are two defendants and one of them is stonewalling.
