I think we’ve had a number of Presidents ignore the US Supreme Court before. I believe Abraham Lincoln was one such President.

I think Abraham Lincoln said something to the effect ... “What army are you going to use to enforce it!” ... LOL ...

This is good news. Wonder if that means all the rules made by NLRB at that time will be voided.

Well, that’s a start.

But knowing these clowns at the 1600 Penn Ave, they will ignore the Supreme Court and their media henchmen will applaud it.

And just what will make Obambi follow this ruling/decision? When a federal judge ruled that the gulf oil lease ban was unconstitutional, Obambi & Holdem just wrote a ‘new’ regulation that stated exactly the same thing. There are no laws, regulations, or procedures when Obambi is doing the work of remaking Amerika. The end justifies..........anything......

By a unanimous vote, the Supreme Court agreed that the Senate was not in recess, holding that it’s up to both houses of Congress to define when they’re in session or in recess. As a result of the decision, the Senate can frustrate a president’s ability to make recess appointments simply by holding periodic pro forma sessions, a tactic used in recent years by both political parties.

The question, the court said, is whether the Senate had the capacity to act. It found that during the recess at issue, the court did have that power.

The stakes were no longer as high as they were when the case first came to the Supreme Court, given that the Senate has now agreed that a president’s nominations need only 51 votes for confirmation.

Wonderful.

Now the question really is, (it shouldn’t be but is): what are we going to do about it?

Will his recess appointments be voided? They should be, but WILL they?

I strongly suspect the following will now take place: the Obama administration will merely ignore this ruling and take no action to remove the recess appointments in question from office.

Then, everyone on the Hill will take precisely ZERO action to remove the appointments themselves. If they even try they will prove themselves “racist”.

And so, life under the regime goes on. Case closed! Thanks for your opinion on the matter Supreme Court, it was neat! Maybe next time he won’t do it again, maybe he will though. After all, again, no one will stop him; no one will force him to answer for his crimes.

Go back to watching your American Idol America! Nothing to see here!

Completely irrelevant...because of the deal cut by Mitch McConnel over the filibuster rule, all those appointments have been approved by the Senate. Anything they did that may have been thrown out, they will simply re-approve.

We have been done in by the cowardice of the GOPe once again.

Constitutionally, Obama's a sitting duck in a shooting gallery that a blind man could hit.

Hoping that somewhere along the line, rulings and Congressional acts will force major reversals and undo much of what Obama has done.

In a popular quotation that is probably apocryphal, President Andrew Jackson reportedly responded: “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).[1]

The Supreme Court has limited a president's power to make temporary appointments to fill high-level government jobs.

Slanted headlines anybody?

He never had the authority in the first place. The Supremes just affirmed he was acting outside of his authority.

Every damned one of the recess appointments should immediately resign, and every damned “order” issued by these illegal appointments must be immediately revoked.

Any subsequent ruling the NLRB made after his appointments should be ruled invalid. Losers in the rulings should forthwith file suit.

If Obama ignores this ruling, then these are as clear a grounds as any for impeachment. It would be hard to spin that for the public.

Tip of the iceberg, right?

The whole Administrative State is unconstitutional and needs to be summarily dismantled. It will take God's miracle to do that.

That miracle may very well be Jesus' own personal return and assumption of all governmental power, don't know.

Nope, the supposed quote is “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!” regarding a decision about a Georgia law relating to control of indian lands. This was not a Lincoln pronouncement, at least with regard to presidential power that I can find. More likely a neo-confederate fantasy.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the powers of the presidency Thursday, ruling decisively that President Obama violated the Constitution by going around the Senate to name key labor and financial watchdogs.

“Because the Senate was in session during its pro forma sessions, the president made the recess appointments before us during a break too short to count as recess,” Breyer said. “For that reason, the appointments are invalid.”

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote for the remaining four justices that a president’s recess appointments power should be limited far more than the court allowed, because the Senate always can be called back into session to confirm nominees.

“The majority practically bends over backward to ensure that recess appointments will remain a powerful weapon in the president’s arsenal,” he said. “That is unfortunate, because the recess appointment power is an anachronism.”
