Supreme Court to hear case on
Obama´s disputed NLRB appointments

Washington Examiner, by Sean Lengell

Original Article

Posted By:grace52, 1/12/2014 11:41:27 AM

The Supreme Court on Monday is set to hear a bitter dispute between Republicans and the White House over whether President Obama exceeded his authority when appointing members to the National Labor Relations Board during a congressional recess. The justices´ decision could cast a legal cloud over hundreds of rulings by the board, which resolves complaints of unfair labor practices and conducts elections for labor union representation.

Suppose that every one of the outrageously illicit appointments is invalidated.
So what?
Who will enforce their removals, or negate their rulings?
Eric Holder and his Nibelungs?
The nation is clutched by an evil criminal enterprise, and will remain in that condition until at least 2017.

The meme that I´m hearing from the window licking liberals is that Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan etc did 100+ recess apointments whereas Obama has done 32.

The difference is that Obama is:
1. Appointing completely unqualified people.
2. Appointing communists, socialists and race hustlers.
3. In the cases of the previous presidents, the Senate WAS in recess.
4. The appointees of the previous presidents were never 180 degrees out of the American mainstream.
5. The democrats complain every time a republican does it, but praises democrat White House occupants for doing the same thing.

With 5 left wing hacks on the courts you know this will pass and then if a republican does the same thing they will go back to the courts and it will be illegal then. This is the kind of kangaroo court you want a good American like Snowden to come back to. You have got to be kidding.

The point is, when the US Senate is in session or is out of session is business that only the US Senate can decide. If they say they are in session in accordance with their rules, Obama does not have the constitutional power to decide that they are not in session on his own.

If that were not the case Obama could tell the US Supreme Court when they are in session or are not in session, and there would really be no separation of powers between the three branches of the federal government.

If the Court rules for Obama on this one, look for him to make recess appointments anytime the Senate goes to lunch claiming that they are not in session.

Watch John Roberts very closely on this.
Will he read his Oath of Office to refresh his memory?
The main thing is the main thing is the main thing. Congress WAS in session.
Obama used a power he did not have. Abuse of Power.

I am sure that administrative convenience will play a starring role in the case. Though it is not part of the Constitution, the DOJ is arguing it virtually all cases. In challenges to EPA action in the Cross State Pollution Rule, it was argued as the reason the EPA didn´t have to set National Air Standards, but could pass the responsibility to the states and object if they didn´t like the basis. Convenience was also raised during the Permitorium case in which the feds slow walked permits after the moratorium on drilling was thrown out for the second time.

If Congress is upset with these appointments, then de-fund them. Get rid of the position. But stop running to the courts. The federal judiciary needs to be disempowered and dismembered..

Job security declining for people in unions
Washington Examiner, by Sean Higgins    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 3/21/2014 4:26:38 PM     Post Reply
Economist Allison Schrager points out a little-noticed shift in the workforce that explains part of the membership problem Big Labor is facing: Union members are now experiencing declining job security. This is notable because job security is a key benefit to joining a union in the first place. Unions are supposed to pressure companies to preserve positions, even in hard times. But even union-dominated industries have seen mass layoffs in recent decades. Also, many of the other benefits that unions provide, like pensions, are only available to people who remain at their jobs for set periods.

There is a maxim that one person´s freedom ends at another person´s nose. That´s not quite how it works in the academic world when the swinger is the liberal powers-that-be and the swingee is a conservative professor. The Alliance Defending Freedom and the American Center for Law and Justice won a significant victory in a North Carolina court this week for restoring the maxim´s equal application on campus.

It would be ironic if Hillary Clinton had a second presidential campaign torpedoed because of another politician´s foreign policy. People don´t much remember it now, but before Hope ´n´ Change Mania swept the country, Sen. Barack Obama shot to the lead in Iowa based almost entirely on drawing contrasts with Sen. Hillary Clinton concerning Iraq. Go re-read the speech he gave at Iowa´s Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Des Moines, shortly before he took off in the polls in November of 2007. Here´s the key passage:

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

Nuclear option fallout
imperils Obama´s nominees
Washington Examiner, by Susan Crabtree    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 3/20/2014 2:56:09 PM     Post Reply
When Senate Democrats executed the so-called nuclear option last year and changed their chamber´s rules for votes on President Obama´s nominees, administration officials breathed a sigh of relief. As long as the nominees were qualified, they thought Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., could push them through a deeply divided Senate with a simple majority, not the 60-vote threshold previously required to end debate and proceed to a final up-or-down vote. The Senate Democratic caucus has 55 members so there appeared to be little Republicans could do to prevent the chamber from rubber-stamping Obama´s picks.

Democratic strategists in 2014
are like French generals in 1940
Washington Examiner, by Michael Barone    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 3/17/2014 10:39:30 AM     Post Reply
It is reminiscent of the quandary faced by General Maurice Gamelin on the evening of May 15, 1940. Suddenly he realized that German panzer troops had broken through the supposedly impassable Ardennes. French troops to the north were cut off and rendered useless, troops to the south were falling back in disarray on all sides and no reserves were available between the front and Paris. “Yes,” he told the prime minister, “it means the destruction of the French Army.” Now, analogies between military history and politics are never exact, and no one in American politics remotely resembles the Nazis.

Average premiums jump 39% to 56% under

Posted By: grace52- 3/17/2014 10:34:51 AM     Post Reply
Americans buying health insurance outside the new Obamacare exchanges are being forced to swallow premiums up to 56 percent higher than before the health law took effect because insurers have jumped the cost to cover all the added features of the new Affordable Care Act. According to a cost report from eHealthInsurance, a nationwide online private insurance exchange, families are paying an average of $663 a month and singles $274 a month, far more than before Obamacare kicked in. What´s more, to save money, most buyers are choosing the lowest level of coverage, the so-called "bronze" plans.

As the March 31 Obamacare sign-up deadline nears, Planned Parenthood is going to bat for the White House, hosting more than 500 events in 18 cities to get Americans into the health insurance system. In eight states, officials from the women’s health and abortion provider will go to grocery stories and even indoor soccer fields to enroll people. It also plans to dispatch 500 canvassers to knock on 20,000 doors.

Wendy Davis´ filibuster against late-term

Washington Examiner, by Michael Barone    Original Article

Embedded in the returns for last Tuesday´s primary election in Texas is an interesting lesson on the difficulty of holding even a minority party´s coalition together. State Sen. Wendy Davis achieved national renown for filibustering a bill prohibiting abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy (a point at which many babies are viable outside the womb). She became a national heroine to many abortion rights supporters and attracted vast sums of out-of-state money, and those Democrats who have been hoping to “paint Texas blue” have seen her as a possible game-changer, even though in polls she runs behind Attorney General Greg

Emails obtained by the Washington Examiner through a Freedom of Information Act request raise new questions about how much the White House knew about Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius´ fundraising for Obamacare and whether she solicited donations from entities she regulates. White House officials have said they did not sign off on calls made by Sebelius to solicit donations from private entities for Enroll America, an outside nonprofit with close White House ties that promotes enrollment in the health law´s insurance exchanges. Officials say they were only generally aware Sebelius would be seeking support from outside groups.

In Senate race, two Kansans battle

Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

The fight for the Republican Senate nomination in Kansas has turned, in part, into a strange battle between a fourth-generation Kansan and a fifth-generation Kansan over who is more Kansan. The fourth-generation Kansan is Sen. Pat Roberts, born in Topeka in 1936, and his fifth-generation opponent is Dr. Milton Wolf, born in Lyons in 1970. So far, it´s a lopsided affair; the majority of Kansas voters know little about Wolf, who is far behind an opponent familiar after 18 years in the Senate and 16 years in the House.

White House: Only President Obama
can change Obamacare
Washington Examiner, by Charles Hoskinson    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 3/5/2014 10:18:59 AM     Post Reply
The White House late Tuesday said President Obama would veto a House bill that would delay for a year the individual mandate in the president´s health care law. The House Rules Committee was set to debate the measure at a 5 p.m. meeting, setting it up for a floor vote as early as Wednesday. The bill isn´t likely to pass the Senate, however, since Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., usually keeps from the floor anything the White House opposes.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with
