Skip to comments.NLRB Appointments Ruled Unconstitutional
Posted on 01/30/2013 11:04:40 AM PST by John Semmens
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that President Obamas recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board last January were invalid. The decision effectively nullifies every action taken by the NLRB over the last year.
The Obama Administration is expected to appeal the Courts decision, alleging that the pro forma sessions convened by the Senate to avoid being in a recess status were a sham aimed at denying the President the opportunity to make valid recess appointments as provided for in the Constitution.
The fact that the Senate is controlled by the Presidents Party and that both Republicans and Democrats have used pro forma sessions on numerous prior occasions for the express purpose of preventing the appointment of persons that they have not vetted and approved were casually dismissed by Press Secretary Jay Carney
Carney called the ruling novel and unprecedented. This is one court, one case, one company. President Obama is the supreme leader of America. He has been given a mandate by the voters to govern and will not be turned aside by the carping of those who oppose him.

So? Obama and the clown he shoved into the Board as Chairman already said they don’t care about the court ruling. Courts work only when people obey them. The gutless Boehner would never consider making an issue of this.
Der Fuhrer! reisen!
Yes, they're kidding.
The post is from the comedy website Semi-News Semi-Satire. Their "reports" are quite clever, so don't feel bad about being taken in.
I asked a question. You've answered it.
