Supreme Court confirms Obama’s lawlessness

It was a long-awaited decision from the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) on the issue of the constitutionality of President Obama’s recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). But this one went the right way. The decision came down Thursday and the results gave the Obama administration little maneuver room — or a platform for politicizing the results.

According to Foxnews.com, “The Supreme Court delivered a blow Thursday to President Obama, ruling that he went too far in making recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. In a unanimous decision, the high court sided with Senate Republicans and limited the president’s power to fill high-level vacancies with temporary appointments. It was the first-ever Supreme Court test involving the long-standing practice of presidents naming appointees when the Senate is on break.”

A unanimous decision is quite telling for President Obama. Of course, we know Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid altered the time-honored filibuster rule that protects the minority party — enabling the advancement of judicial appointees by simple majority. It will be interesting to see what happens with that change if the Democrats lose the Senate in November 2014.

Fox reports that “Obama had argued that the Senate was on an extended holiday break when he filled slots at the NLRB in 2012. He argued the brief sessions it held every three days were a sham that was intended to prevent him from filling the seats. The justices rejected that argument, though, declaring the Senate was not actually in a formal recess when Obama acted during that three-day window. Justice Stephen Breyer said in his majority opinion that a congressional break has to last at least 10 days to be considered a recess under the Constitution. “Three days is too short a time to bring a recess within the scope of the Clause. Thus we conclude that the President lacked the power to make the recess appointments here at issue,” Breyer wrote.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the administration is “deeply disappointed” in the ruling, but will honor it – you mean the same way they “honor” the healthcare law, the sovereignty of our borders, etc. etc.?

The SCOTUS decision now affects three of the Obama administration NLRB appointees, as this case arose from a dispute between the NLRB and a Pepsi-Cola distributor, Noel Canning. The NLRB had ruled against him in a labor dispute, but Canning argued that three of the five board members were improperly appointed. For reference, recess appointments only last for two years, therefore with this ruling the three Obama NLRB appointees’ terms will end. The question is of course, what of the decisions handed down by the NLRB with these three appointees — can they still stand?

The unanimous Supreme Court decision is an official confirmation that the Obama administration does possess a sense of lawlessness in its actions. Now, if we could only persuade Eric Holder to appoint a Special Investigator on the IRS case…ain’t holding my breath on that one.

As much as I want to see that Bastard dragged out of the White House in chains TODAY, I’ll take this as the first step toward that goal.

Obozo needs to be impeached BAAAD.

Mike Arienti

He has no interest in following laws or doing what’s best for the people. He does what he wants because he says and believes he can. The thing is, he can! Nobody has the balls to impeach him and remove him from office.

Rena

This is just the first step of many that we need to take against him and this administration… Good job SCOTUS.. it’s about time they started listening and following our institution of laws set for us by our founding fathers..

Reba

Look how on long it took. As long as it takes to get anything through the Courts, the damage will be done and it will not matter.

Ric Jarvis

But surely if it’s found that he acted unlawfully his decisions can be repealed as illegal actions ?

Reba
Guest

That’s true, but they will get nowhere on Impeachment. It’s down to arresting the administration and anyone else that has helped him. He has broken many Laws and has committed Treason. I don’t know what else they need to go forward.

Question …. I’m new to this country, I only emigrated here two years ago (LEGALLY).
My question is this …. Can the POTUS be arrested before impeachment or does that have to be taken care of first?

Spencer James

Impeachment is a court process where the official is questioned under oath and has to answer fully and honestly if they are caught in their own lies that is perjury and depending on the what they lie about the crime fits the punishment. However if they admit to criminal doing that too is punishable.
Will Obama be impeached? I’d love to see it happen, but not likely

I see a lot of people talking about impeachment, but I don’t think Obama has ANY intention of leaving the White House.. Ever.. I have come to think like a lot of other people, he will declare martial law before his term is over.. And we know if he does that there will be no elections held. I see it coming, the man thinks hes King..

The first step toward impeachment is taking the majority away from the lib-communists. Once obuma`s stooge reid is no longer the senate leader, then any articles of impeachment can actually reach the senate floor. No matter the out come of the impeachment obuma`s presidency is dead and his criminals he has appointed will then be chargable. As the joint congress will have teeth in the form being able to arrest people. We can at that point start taking our country back from the communists one step at a time. Until 2016, when Clinton will be defeated, and we can put… Read more »

I know this is a wall of words but please read…it says it all. BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER! (Mychal Massie is a respected BLACK writer and talk show host in Los Angeles) The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s. Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.” The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like… Read more »

Where are the ass of the Republican when President Obama tried to pass the bill that would be good for the American people. Who is the jackass that said what he did was illegal?

All The jackass who sued the President for doing good for the American were the one who could stop sending our men and women over sea to kill, destroy, steal nations to nations without… Read more »
