Appeals Court: Obama Violating Law on Nuke Site
Associated Press ^ | WASHINGTON August 13, 2013 | MATTHEW DALY

n a rebuke to the Obama administration, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been violating federal law by delaying a decision on a proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada.

By a 2-1 vote, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered the commission to complete the licensing process and approve or reject the Energy Department's application for a never-completed waste storage site at Nevada's Yucca Mountain.

In a sharply worded opinion, the court said the nuclear agency was "simply flouting the law" when it allowed the Obama administration to continue plans to close the proposed waste site 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas. The action goes against a federal law designating Yucca Mountain as the nation's nuclear waste repository...

Why does anyone even think of him as pResident? We don’t have a leader, we have a leech. in chief. He is useless. There’s a whole lot of folks running things but Broncobama isn’t one. He’s just a pretty face, nothing more. Golf, anyone?

"This isn't even a bump in the road," Reid said. "This, without being disrespectful to the court, means nothing."

Reid grows more arrogant by the day. He is a perfect complement to Obama. Too bad they are not on opposite sides of a major issue.

There's not much worse than an arrogant flying monkey.

So Harry doesn’t want this proper nuclear fuels waste facility in his backyard but, it is OK to dump it in Washington State in leaking tanks? Why aren’t the environmentalists crowds jumping all over this? Why do we even have laws if Democrats are going to flout them at every turn?

From the article:

"The appeals court said the case has important implications for the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches of government."

"It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive and independent agencies to disregard federal law in the manner asserted in this case by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission," Kavanaugh wrote. "The commission is simply defying a law enacted by Congress ... without any legal basis."

So does this decision mean that DOJ not enforcing the DOMA is the same sort of thing with "important implications for the separation of powers"? What about the "important implications" of passing BarryCare when it didn't originate in the House?

I still clearly remember the "horror" democrat fascists expressed over the "Imperial" attitude of Nixon and Nixon was a piker compared to King Barry. Are the same sort of scum upset over King Barry doing far worse? Of course not.

No democrat at any level can ever be trusted because they all obviously put their party above the Constitution, the will of those who elected them, and even above God. Not working to elect anyone but a democrat is a death wish.

They're all just warmed over Nazis without the snappy uniforms and now that they're using queers as shock troops it won't be long before their street thugs are wearing snappy uniforms.

Here is an idea, bury it where it is supposed to go in Nevada and screw dirtbag Harry into the same hole.

What do laws mean to Obama? Doesn’t like a law? Ignore it, or even just ignore chunks of it. Needs a law to help him along, just create one.
