Skip to comments.Obama Seizes Control of 'Second Highest Court'
Posted on 01/10/2014 4:00:29 AM PST by Texas Fossil
The Senate is poised to confirm Robert L. Wilkins to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit the final battle in a bruising war between the White House and Senate Republicans over the "second highest court in the land."
The D.C. Circuit deals with cases against the federal government. Anyone who has a complaint with a regulatory agency or wants to challenge an excess of the federal government usually winds up there.
In November, Obama effectively gained control of the 11-member court when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid triggered the "nuclear option" reducing the threshold needed to stop a filibuster from 60 votes to a simple majority.

AND November 2014 is coming.
The House should defund that court, or at least cut their funding. Let the caseload go to a court that has not been packed with traitors, or be delayed until the traitors die and are replaced by Americans.
We think that because the other option is unthinkable at this time... fact.
As if it matters with Traitor Roberts on SCOTUS.
I truly believe that we are one death away from permanent Democrat rule.
All Lord Obie needs is one of the four conservatives on the Supreme Court to die and SHAZAM.
Exactly. Yes, that is what must be done. But the defunding can only occur when conservatives hold House, Senate and White House. Until 2016 then, the DC Circuit is free to stop lawsuits against Obama’s federal agencies.
The do matter, unless they are stolen.
Yes, at this time.
In all honesty, I would appreciate a well-thought vanity post by those who think something other than peaceful means will restore our freedoms.
Congress is popularly elected, and the president is elected every four years, so how do we revolt against ourselves? Keep the constitution? Amend it at the point of a bayonet? Maybe a national referendum to elect a despot for life who could be counted on to maintain order and stop the bloodshed?
If a nationwide or sectional Jeffersonian watering of the tree of liberty is point "A," I would like to know more about the intervening points "B-Y" that lead to the goal of freedom at point "Z."
You are correct.
It is deathly important that conservatives or at least the GOP regain Senate majority and increase House majority in November elections. It is each our responsibility to work like Trojans for an end to Dingy Harry’s rein and bridle nobama before they can load the SCOTUS.
I say conservative or a least the GOP because the relatively low numbers of hard rock conservatives running, but “half a glass” is a lot better than and empty one.
This is life or death for America as we know it, America can not afford another block of conservative voters to sit this one out just because they didn’t get the perfect candidate as happened in 2008 and 2012.
The only powers Hisself doesn't exercise are those he doesn't think he can politically get away with.
Elections mean little more than pre-condonement, (if that is a word), or advance forgiveness of future crimes.
Maybe you should do a little reading, say Article 5?
All the more reason to take the senate in ‘14, make sure they hold the nuke option and pay back the RATS. Hopefully, what goes round comes around.
If conservatives or the GOP had complete control, the left would do what they do - use other means to try to get their way. Boycotts, sit-ins/take-overs, riots. The problem is, the left is diametrically opposed to American values, traditions & laws. The left has effective control over most of the countries institutions, even if they all don’t realize it. They have brainwashed much of the country. This will not end well.
You do everything that you can within the confines of the US Constitution and the tools available to you as a civilized man... if ALL else fails... revolution... and that is the last option on the list. Why? Because millions of Americans will die if it ever happens and that should be avoided if at all possible... but never should it be avoided at ALL COSTS... because that would mean that the millions of Americans that have died to ensure our Freedom and Liberty would have died in vain. We owe it not only to ourselves and our future... we owe it to our past as well. That is why it must only be a last option when your back is against the wall... like the lives and times that our Founders endured. I pray it never happens... if it does... I will answer the call.
As I’m in my 72nd orbit around the Sun, I have some experience with these people. The Republic is finished. We are a European Socialist nation now. Our currency is devalued and we’re in debt that can’t be repaid. Congress is worthless, the USSC is compromised and the Executive Branch is ruling by EO and regulation. We are divided by conflicting cultures by design. I’ll just be a spectator.
Only trouble is, we’ve already got the House, and these candy-asses don’t have the guts to use the power they have to fight back. Why do you think taking the Senate will change that?
No, it will not end well.
