Court Rules Obama Appointments Are Unconstitutional

Barack Obama American flag SC Court Rules Obama Appointments Are Unconstitutional

WASHINGTON – President Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies on a labor relations panel, a federal appeals court panel ruled Friday.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that Obama did not have the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board.

The unanimous decision is an embarrassing setback for the president, who made the appointments after Senate Republicans spent months blocking his choices for an agency they contended was biased in favor of unions.

The ruling also throws into question Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray’s appointment, also made under the recess circumstance, has been challenged in a separate case.

Obama claims he acted properly in the case of the NLRB appointments because the Senate was away for the holidays on a 20-day recess. But the three-judge panel ruled that the Senate technically stayed in session when it was gaveled in and out every few days for so-called “pro forma” sessions.

  1. Impeach Obama NOW

  2. Linda A. From NY says:

    obongo has violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies, so why does this man just keeps getting away with it? he needs to be impeach, I believe Reid has the power to have a investigation to look into obongo's records, yet he has not done it. Reid should be fired for not doing his job, which he hasn't done on all levels. Reid needs to be fired and replace with a honest man/woman that will put a stop to all of this nonsense and impeach this bum that is destroying our Country.

    The fact is they all need to go, it would be nice to clean house and get rid of all the scum out of this government.

  3. This hopefully is the first of MANY unconstitutional acts committed by O that are being uncovered —— with the finale being his impeachment. People – do not stop writing, calling and emailing your Senators and Representatives so they know where you stand (and, do not be shy with your words — just be polite).

  4. Angry Man says:

    I am organizing a million American Patriot ride and march to take place in May or June. We will end the ride at Capitol Hill, at Congress and the White House. We will demand impeachment and that Obama step down NOW, and that Biden, Reod, Feinstein, and ALL of congress step down NOW. We will not leave until that happens.
    I'm looking for 1 million people or more. If you're interested, send an email to americanpatriotsforamerica@gmail.com and when the website is up, I will notify you. Tell all your friends, family, neighbors, and if you still have a job, tell your co-workers to join for the the ride and the march…

    The sooner we have all the people, the sooner we can end this tyrannical government and save America for our kids.

  5. Hey, I have a suggestion for those in this Court, RULE HUSSEIN “election/appointment” TO THE OFFICE HE NOW HOLDS, ILLEGALLY, null and void, in fact, RULE HIM PERSONALLY NULL AND VOID OF ANY AND ALL MEANING! Then, EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE WOULD BE ALSO, NULL AND VOID! Just NULLIFY HIM AND HIS “executive orders” ALL IN ONE SWOOP AND DON”T WASTE ANYMORE TIME ON HIM OR HIS CRAP!!!!!!!! I guess that’s too simple huh?

Speak Your Mind
