Supremes Poised to Strike Down
Obama´s Recess Appointments

Breitbart Big Government, by Ken Klukowski

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/13/2014 7:34:59 PM

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether President Barack Obama´s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are unconstitutional. The case will probably be a lopsided defeat for the president, with his own Supreme Court appointees expressing deep skepticism of the Justice Department´s arguments. If the Court goes the route it signaled during argument, all the rulings and regulations from that powerful body over a period of a couple years will be declared illegal, at least temporarily until a new Board can reconsider them. For decades, presidents of both parties have strayed from the limits of the

Yeah, well we thought after oral arguments that the Court was poised to overturn Obamacare, too. Surprise.

I´m with #1. If John Roberts (Bush´s Souter) has his way it will be a surprise. We´ll know the fix is in if he votes with the liberals on the Court.

Even if SCOTUS rules that these appointments are invalid who is going to kick these faux appointees out of their cozy chairs? FBI? Riiiight.

´´Poised to strike down´´ reminds me of Chief Justice Robert´s posture BEFORE he approved Obamacare.

Is #5 correct?

Unfortunately the Supreme Court is no longer the independent judicial body originally designed and intended by our founders. It has instead morphed over the last few decades into a quasi committee of political appointees who pretty reliably reflect the views of the party that appointed them, and especially those selected by the Democrats, who apply every litmus test necessary to assure they will rule reliably on their pet causes.

The leftist wing of the court has been stacked with apparatchiks instead of genuine constitutional experts. The constitution seems irrelevant to them as they consistently seem to ignore it in their completely biased rulings. Ginsburg was an activist for abortion and other leftist causes, for Pete´s sake. Kagan was an advisor to Obama and his team. What the heck kind of objective legal minds is that?

The Supreme Court today is a complete farce. Going forward we must come up with a different method of selecting its members. Must.

Exactly, #3. The IRS targeting of conservative groups was zippy´s response to the SCOTUS ruling on corporations being able to donate to political campaigns. I can´t remember the name of the case/ruling right now, but I´m sure that someone here can. It´s the case that zippy attacked the Supremes for at the SOTU speech.
As we well know, zippy simply ignores judicial rulings he doesn´t like.

#12 is spot on! We also have the John Roberts problem. Talk about exceeding your power! We still don´t know what happened with Roberts. Was it a case of some kind of weird brain freeze or do the Dems have some dirt on him or his family? Or has he simply gone crazy?

A more illogical and convoluted decision has never passed the Court that I know of. Also, I thought all taxes had to originate in Congress so it may have been unconstitutional in that respect as well but that seems to be of little consequence these days. Nobody gives a toot about the Constitution anymore, including the Supremes. Maybe this time around Roberts will rewrite the Constitution for us.

Let´s never forget that Obama is, at his heart, a Black Panther with a law degree. He aims for cracks in the legal system and then uses the Alinsky rule that says "force your enemy to live by his own rules".

This whole "gaveling into session every few days" scheme was dubious to begin with and Obama knew it.

This decision could go either way if you ask me.

We will just have to wait and see how the US Supreme Court decides. It is just common sense that it is the business of the US Senate to decide when it is in session or when it is not in session and that Obama has no authority to decide that fact because he is in a wholly different branch of government. Obama´s position that it was necessary for him to do that because the US Senate refused to back his nomination of certain bureaucrats and judges will not fly because the US Senate has the absolute constitutional right to reject any of Obama´s nominees. The process by how the US Senate does that is also the business of the US Senate as provided in their rules.

If Omaha could decide when the US Senate is in session, why could he not decide when the US Supreme Court is in session or even when they should be in session?

"The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour." excerpt from article III section I of the U.S. Constitution.

Now, just what does "good behavior" mean? To my knowledge, this has never been questioned. Can legislating from the judicial bench be considered good behavior? If not, then that should be an avenue for impeachment from the bench. And that includes members of the SCOUTS. At least I believe it should be tried. Of course, the main problem with that is that it would have to go through the Congress. And we all know how far that would get.

If this obama abuse in not struck down the the constitution no longer provides for advice and consent of the Senate in appointment to federal office. It is as simple as that. Too bad the GOP will not use this power to remedy Obama excesses when/if they take over. The left implement their policies when they have power the right does not. The GOP pretend to stand for something and betray their supporters every time. This is a fatal sickness!

The Justics might seem to be offended or critical of the argument during session- but, once they go back to wirte their opinions, they seem to be somehow vulnerable to mind changing influences. Their obtueuse and convoluted judgements challenge human logic. They will decide this issue based on what the politic demands, not what is right for the people or the constitution. If they rubberstamp Øbama we can at last be sure, on this obviously anti-constitutional matter, that they are indeed owned and are nothing but "Robe Trees".

Bush greets Obama at Houston airport

When President Barack Obama arrived in Houston about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, former President George H. W. Bush was there to greet him. "When the president comes to your hometown, you show up to meet him," said Bush, who chatted with Obama and the first lady for about five minutes at the foot of the steps next to Air Force One at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Obama greeted about 50 well-wishers behind a barricade and chatted and shook hands for about 10 minutes before leaving for a meeting with about 30 members of the Democratic National Committee at the Museum District

As new details emerged about his four-year stint in the 1980s as a confidential informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rev. Al Sharpton thought enough of the attention to hold a news conference to address what became front-page fodder for New York tabloids for two days this week. But to use Sharpton-esque language, the revelation was nothing but an elevation. At the annual convention of the organization he founded in 1991, the National Action Network, there was no hint of any discord or doubt. The United States attorney general, Eric H.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent tax documents on a targeted conservative group to Democratic staff on the House Oversight Committee, newly released emails show, despite previous denials by ranking Oversight Democrat Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) that such contact had occurred. Emails released by the GOP-led Oversight Committee show Democratic staff requested information from the IRS’ tax-exempt division on True The Vote, a conservative group that monitors polling places for voter fraud. Republicans and conservative activists say the IRS tax-exempt division, led by former official Lois Lerner, targeted dozens of conservative groups because of their politics while ignoring similar progressive

The Treasury Department has raised $2.38 billion after selling a large chunk of its stock in Ally Financial Inc. as part of the government´s ongoing effort to recoup the billions of dollars spent bailing out companies during the 2008 financial crisis. Treasury said Wednesday that it got $25 each for the 95 million shares it sold in an initial public offering. The pricing of the IPO came at the low end of the forecast range of $25 to $28 per share. The sale brought the amount it has recouped from the bailout of Ally to $17.7 billion, slightly more than the

The House on Wednesday handily rejected a GOP budget alternative based on President Obama´s 2015 spending blueprint. It was defeated 2-413, following a pattern seen in recent years in House votes to overwhelmingly reject Obama´s budget proposals. Today´s vote is just slightly better than the unanimous vote against Obama´s budget in 2012. The two "yes" votes came from Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) and Jim Moran (D-Va.), who is retiring. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) offered a budget alternative based on Obama´s budget plan as a substitute amendment to the House GOP budget. Mulvaney made this move as a way to force

A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral. The vote marked an escalation in Republicans´ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency´s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny. On another front, a separate committee will vote Thursday on whether to hold her in contempt of Congress for twice refusing to testify on the scandal.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
