Obama recess appointments

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/26/2013 12:33:45 AM

In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess. The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and hence the five-person board did not have a quorum to operate. But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance

“This panel of the D.C. circuit has accomplished what Minority Leader Mitch McConnell failed to do. Minority Leader McConnell said that his No. 1 objective was defeating Barack Obama and Barack Obama’s attempt to govern. This D.C. circuit panel has been successful where McConnell failed. they have really, effectively challenges the president’s ability to govern,” Mr. Williams said.

Mr. Williams the Founders did not set up the federal government
so that the President could govern efficiently.

They set up the federal government
so that the President was required to govern minimally.

We find ourselves were we are
because liberals like you
persistently, perniciously,
refuse to accept that fact.

This is wonderful...finally, someone is standing up against this miserable tyrant who sees nothing wrong with breaking the absolute law of the land. Evil cretin. We need more men and women of integrity to stand up and stop the powermongers who are destroying this country.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

If he decides to make legal appointments instead of illegal ones, his appointees will all be seditious Leftists anyway. With Obama, it´s always a lose-lose situation for the country.

The NLRB insists that is will continue, which make it a rogue board in contempt of court.
Now Boehner must defund it.

Oh wow bamboozler thought he had free reign to reign with no reference to any laws. If this goes the same was as the healthcare bill, the supremes will rule in his favor. Roberts will say we´ve come too far with what bamster has done to turn back now, which raises a new point: Do we have to tolerate Supremes who always rule in bamboozler´s favor? Is that objective? Watch Kagan and Sotomayor rule his way every time, day in, day out. We should start a petition to have them removed, once proven they cannot be objective and are nothing more than Obama stooges. We do not have to accept status quo.

Radical Leftists like Obama do not agree with the American political system of checks and balances. Many do not even understand it. Their mentality is that of Lenin and the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. They have contempt for true representative government because it inevitably presents and presses for a wide variety of political opinions. Leftists are elitists are authoritarians at heart. They despise the mess, clamor, confusion and above all the delay of democracy. Though they profess devotion to democratic, egalitarian ideals, what most of them actually want is a submissive population and unfettered political power to do what they think is best. Though it sounds strange to say it, a remarkable number of radical Leftists like Obama are simply unable to comprehend the idea that they just might not know and be right about everything - that people who disagree with them not only have the right to do so, but may even upon occasion prove to be correct.

American schools and universities do not seem to be doing a satisfactory job of educating future citizens in the basic principles of representative Constitutional government. This can and will have grave consequences for the Republic if it continues.

These picks were so bad that Reid wasn´t going to get them confirmed. Obama decided to break the rules and deal with the consequences if some judge ruled against him. It just the end of his first term, but a growing number of judges have learned that he´s a lousy constitutional scholar and often chooses to operate outside the law.

Any normal person would be taking a hard look at the lawyer who gave them the bad legal advice that they could make these appointments. But these people are all hardcore ideologues. They know precisely what action they intend to take, and then fabricate tortured and erroneous legal arguments to support their illegal actions.

This is a great victory and maybe a turning point in obama´s lawless behavior. We will now see if our system is truly broken. All rulings by this illegal board should be null and void. And why should the Supremes take this up? The Constitution is clear, and the court´s decision was unanimous.

This ruling isn´t going to make a whit of difference to Obozo. He will just ignore it like he did that federal judge´s ruling during the Deepwater Horizon episode. And what will be the consequences of that action? Do you really think that a federal marshall is going to the WH and arrest him? He is creating a Constitutional train wreck and that is just what he wants. To rule, not govern, without any restraints. And it seems that he is getting just that.

OK. Lets say this goes to the sort-of Supreme Court and Obama loses again. What difference does it make? Who will do anything about it and enforce the constitution? No one, in my opinion. He can just thumb his nose at everyone and half of the country will support him. Heck, they don´t even know what the LRB is or does, they don´t care. Even if the House impeached there is no way the Senate would do anything as there are probably only a dozen senators with any brass.

The judges decision will be ignored (ala Gulf drilling) and nothing will happen.

Obo knew this should be the outcome of his appointments. It was a gamble since the Supreme Court is not reliable constitutionalists. (ala Obamacare, McCain/Feingold)

NLRB should be defunded immediately since there is not a legal quorum sitting on the board.

There are a bunch of Senate Democrats who are running in 2014, and it´s time to stick them with the out-of-control spending, debt and everything else. After all, they didn´t do their job in last 4 years.

No, #7. The media is misrepresenting the issue - even Fox news - so it is no surprise that people don´t understand. NO one else has ever done this, because Obama made these recess appointments when the Senate was still technically in session. Actual recess appointments are not unconstitutional and it does not matter how many were made by Bush or Reagan. When the dems began using profarma sessions to prevent recess appointments by Bush, he did not try to make appointments anyway as Obama has. The distinction is quite pronounced.

Anytime we get an abuse-of-oower ruling from an appeals court, that is prtty good.
Levin says it is not a criminal situation but that any of the cases before the NLRB during this time shoud file suit and firle to have the suit result overturned.

This will come up later as abuse of power. If we can get 3 or so of these sbuse of power ruling it will smear his legacy and might be more. thing grind slowly in the US jurisprudence

Apologies to #7. You are not wrong. Although the suit was brought because Obama made appointments while the Senate was still technically in session, the judges decision is much broader and puts other recess appointments in question.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit.

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger.

That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

The Supreme Court searched Tuesday for ways to let women get birth control without the government forcing their employers to cover the cost, as justices tried to balance business owners’ religious rights against allowing religious objections to a broad range of public policy issues. Justices touched on abortion, the limits of federal power and details of birth control, but the case centering on the Hobby Lobby craft store chain likely will come down to whether the court believes for-profit companies and their owners can claim a moral conscience objection to paying for employees’ birth control.

Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.
