Skip to comments.Second appeals court invalidates Obama's NLRB recess appointments
Posted on 05/16/2013 12:43:06 PM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
A second appeals court has joined the D.C. Circuit in ruling that President Barack Obamas recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board were unconstitutional, concluding that some board actions taken in the wake of those appointments were also invalid.
The issue has far-reaching implications for both the NLRB and other boards, including Obamas Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which has been a frequent target of conservatives and whose director was a recess appointment.
The 2-1 decision Thursday from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit (posted here) found that the presidential recess appointment power is limited to breaks between sessions of Congress, not breaks within sessions or other adjournments during which the Senate might meet in pro forma sessions. The reasoning mirrors that in a ruling of the D.C. Circuit Court in January.

The police should prevent these people from entering the building.
So when’s congress going to see the hand writing on the wall and DO something about it?
So...the people he appointed are going to be fired?
I’ll believe it when I see it.
I’d be willing to come out of retirement to do that and I would charge a dime.
Hey Obama, this hasn’t been a good week for you, huh? Hopefully there’s many more like it.
Little bammy will not get it.
Better to tell him he did a "no-no."
You don’t get it. Once SCOTUS upholds the lower courts’ decisions, Obama will say, “So, what’re you gonna do about it?” His illegal NLRB will just keep going on making decisions. He knows no one will stop him.
It seems our government is good for nothing these days. The republicans are nothing but whiners without backbone and the left is full of criminals and hired guns to go after enemies. This administration should have been brought down long ago. They are a threat to all things American including national security. We are now living in a lawless land.
Just wait until a real court (as if that exists) looks at validating dear leader’s birth certificate (which one they’d look at, I wouldn’t know).
He is slime.
From Worcester v. Georgia
"Worcester v. Georgia, 31 U.S. (6 Pet.) 515 (1832), was a case in which the United States Supreme Court vacated the conviction of Samuel Worcester and held that the Georgia criminal statute that prohibited non-Indians from being present on Indian lands without a license from the state was unconstitutional."
"In a popular quotation, President Andrew Jackson is supposed to have said: "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!". This derives from Jackson's consideration on the case in a letter to John Coffee, "...the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate," (that is, the Court's opinion because it had no power to enforce its edict)."
However: "The Court did not ask federal marshals to carry out the decision, as had become standard."
Can I give you... a hand or two, Raylan?
So it appears that Mister Constitutionalists Law teacher doesn’t seem to follow the law..............per second court ruling
When their constituents start demanding action. It hasn't gotten that far yet because the welfare checks are still being delivered.
so why are they still working and getting paid.
Never going to happen. Obama will finish his term. Don’t waste time or energy on impeachment.
Focus on strengthening/increasing the conservatives in Congress and on winning the Senate from the Dems.
No, Obama’s Mr. Harvard Affirmative Action Law Student, Mr. Affirmative Action Harvard Law Review President, and then Mr. Affirmative Action University of Chicago Constitutional Law Professor.
He’s now serving as our affirmative action President and peforming to par.
i will do it for a penny and will need to have some help shove my feet up Obama’s behind, as I am paralyzed waist down.
ya left out Occidental “C” student who transfer’s to HARVARD with heavy Saudi financial backing
Another court for the Clown to ignore.
Impeachment means very little, unless there's a significant chance at removal. Get back to me about impeachment when at least a dozen Democratic Senators are open to removal.
Well, my heart and lungs are toast, but between the two of us, we could get the job done. ;>)
impeachable offense? ...Not even close
Beyond arrogant... absolutely...
Liberals have nothing to worry about with this court ruling. Obama will pull out his Executive Orders pen, and change a few laws to ensure his goons can get their appointments.
“What difference—at this point—what difference does it make?”
