NLRB: We will continue to act despite the Appeals Court decision
Washington Examiner ^ | 1-25-2013 | Sean Higgins

Posted on 01/25/2013 2:11:01 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

Mark Gaston Pearce, chairman of the National Labor Relations Board, issued the following statement in reaction to today’s DC Appeals Court decision that President Obama use of recess appointments to install three people on the NLRB last year was unconstitutional. The action renders the board without a quorum to act and potentially invalidates a year’s worth of actions and rulings by it. Pearce indicated that the NLRB will attempt to continue on regardless:

"It’s a pretty brazen strategy, but consistent with a broader administration strategy to simply ignore the court’s ruling."

He could end up losing ObamaCare when it gets back to the Supremes if he keeps acting up.

Too bad the subject wasn’t the validity of Obama’s recess election when the people lost their collective minds.

Anyway, Invalidating the commisioners invalidates their actions. Next, Richard Cordray.

These court decisions are the “law of the land” and a settled issue when the liberals win.

I can’t wait to hear the MSM’s out rage at this blatant disregard for the power of the courts by this overreaching administration.

OOPs I forgot who we were talking about

Never mind.

WTF? I guess this means America’s tyrannical government is official. Executive branch’s self-proclaimed disconnect from the legislative and judicial branch is grounds for war, per the Constitution.

The constitution contemplates the political remedy of impeachment and removal from office. Not that Congress will do its job - it's failed miserably on that count, in many ways, for as long as I have been alive.

“The constitution contemplates the political remedy of impeachment and removal from office.”

The Second Amendment contemplates the same result but with a slightly different remedy.

There are also laws against operating a public nuisance...

I guess since the court didn’t issue a cease and desist order they’re technically correct.

Courts are too chicken to even try to enforce their rulings. It’s not the first time for Obama to ignore them.

There is one other option. The House can refuse to fund the NLRB. We’ll see if they have the spine for that. But this really is getting serious now. We have the Obama Admin standing in direct defiance and disrespect of the enumerated powers of the two other branches of government.

Didn’t 0bama ignore a Fed Court ruling ordering him to stop revoking oil drilling permits after the BP oil disaster too, and he ignored that also?

There's a difference between a Supreme Court decision and a Circuit Court decision. There is something of a circuit split (several different circuit splits, actually) regarding the question of when the Senate is in "Recess" for the purposes of the "Recess Appointments" clause. The DC Circuit's ruling in this case (that "Recess Appointments" apply only to appointments made during the recess between Congresses every two years, and that they only apply to vacancies that open up during that recess) was more restrictive of the President's power than most other decisions have been. The DC Circuit (unfortunately) did not enjoin the NLRB from acting with the disputed commissioners, which (again, unfortunately) means that the decision does not precent the NLRB from acting in other cases. Until the Supreme Court weighs in, the NLRB's position here is technically correct.

-- There is one other option. The House can refuse to fund the NLRB. --

There are many options. Individual litigants can ignore NLRB rulings; and, following the administration's lead, might as well feel free to ignore court rulings as well.

-- But this really is getting serious now. --

I enjoy a meaty constitutional crisis.

That said, I don't see much harm in the NLRB acting as though this decision will be reversed. If the case was heard in a different Circuit, the result would have been different - so, looking forward, current cases may end up with appellate courts holding that the appointments were constitutional.

Fascinating that there really isn't a rule of law, and that the constitution means whatever the most powerful bully says it means. SCOTUS, the ultimate bully, will speak up in due course.

Is there anyone truly surprised that is is happening? Pretty obvious that the “mask was coming off” and he is going to completely ignore everything Congress or the Courts tell him to do. He is going to act like a dictator. Who will stop him?

I remember when we believed in the rule of law. That was a long time ago. I’m afraid that this will go on until the thugs in DC are forcefully reminded of where government derives its just powers - they’re not sensible enough to back off even when it’s appropriate to defer to human decency.

Would an arrest warrant for impersonating a federal officer be sufficient incentive to stop the illegal behavior? Suspend their pay checks until the Supreme Court either overturns or sustains. The lower court. For the moment, they are acting illegally. Someone needs to grow a spine and stop them.

“Pearce indicated that the NLRB will attempt to continue on regardless:”

Good. And businesses should simply ignore any rulings or regulations coming from this illegitimate entity. They have a ruling from a federal court to fall back on.

The next step is to sue to have them return their illegal salaries they’ve been paid since their illegal appointments, their illegal health payments, and any other illegal benefits they’ve received. Oh yes, the illegal payments made for illegal security staff we’ve paid for, since they’re private citizens, not government employees. We must move to immediately garnish their bank accounts and cancel their automobile leases. Let them ride the metro.

I suspected that this was what would happen - Bambi & Co. would simply ignore the court.

And there’ll be absolutely no penalty to him or to the NLRB. The court can do whatever it wants, but Obama controls enforcement and nothing is going to stop him.

However, he has checked this off in his little black (pardon the word) book, and the lives of this panel will be hell.

It’s getting to the point of having an ROI on every drop of blood from the dead children at Sandy Hook. Quite a coup.

Pearce should then be thrown into jail for violating a court order. And Zero should be put on notice not to try anything funny.

Imagine the media howls if Bush had tried this! "Constitutional Crisis" would be the headlines along with "breathless" top-of-the-hour reports on ABCCBSNBCCNN.
