Skip to comments.Obama’s Tyranny Takes Well-Deserved, Long-Overdue, Hit from Courts!
Posted on 01/26/2013 7:32:57 AM PST by EXCH54FE
In an important court ruling which may signal that Barack Obamas insufferable acts of tyranny shall not go unchecked for another four dreary years, a federal appeals court has ruled that The One abused his powers when making Recess Appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.
Thus, the man who Obama himself and fellow Democrats revere as a Constitutional scholar is, after all is said and done, still subject to the rule of law and the US Constitution, and must heel to the principal of separation of powers just like any other mortal, non-deity figure.
As reported, this upbraiding of The One may (with any luck!) be a major impediment to the presidents plans to transform America from Democratic Republic into a dysfunctional dictatorship run at the behest of an in-over-his-head community organizer:
In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obamas 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 panels 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.

The Obama (mis)administration dont care a SHEET for the Constitution nor do his voters. They just WANT! Courts be dammed, and as more Obamatrons are appointed and the federal courts (SCOTUS being the ultimate prize) are totally corrupted his plans for tyranny will multiply.
At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.
No doubt Roberts will find some way to painfully contort the constitution so that the Senate really was in recess.
So, what really changes now? Will these appointees get escorted to the door? Paychecks stop? Termination?
or, just business as usual?
Does that void the decisions that these illegal appointees made? That's very important, but not addressed in the article.
While I would love to see that tin pot despot do a perp walk out of the whitehut, it is not going to happen. Only way they depose the bum is to impeach him and with the dems firmly in control of the senate NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
So, what is left? Probably the senate does a post recess blanket vote for all the illegal appointees. The mere fact they were not legally authorized to do any business (or collect a pay check) will probably be glossed over. There is no rule of law in this administration, they set the tone with the GM bankruptcy (precedent, we don’t need no stinking precedent when the King rules it so).
They willingly ignore what a "Session of Congress" is.
They must know that recess is a short period of rest, a break from work or duty. Their grade school class took a recess it did not adjourn.. or maybe the lefties did adjourn from all education back in grade school. They ignore the difference but they accept that it is important to acknowledge what the meaning of is is.
The ruling class New Normal. All rise.
for the full text of the decision.
The short answer is no. The court only ruled on the case before them. The company bringing the case won and was granted the relief sought. Any other person or entity harmed in a similar fashion will need to bring their own case to court and it is quite likely they will prevail provided their case is filed in the same circuit. The court did not issue a blanket order voiding all action of the board nor will they seek out anyone else harmed by the board's action. The burden of seeking relief is on the person desiring it.
That gives Obama an unlevel playing field. If each party wronged by an illegal appointment has to go through the court system, the advantage goes to the offense. In other words, by taking illegal actions which take a disproportionate amount of effort to counter, since he can affect many with one act, while those harmed each have to appeal, he proves once again that “it is easier to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.”
