Supreme Court May Move To Rein In President Obama’s Trampling Of The Constitution (ZeroHedge, Jan 13, 2014):

 It would appear that there is even a limit for the Supreme Court as to what they will allow President Obama to get away with:
  • *OBAMA’S RECESS APPOINTMENTS QUESTIONED BY U.S. SUPREME COURT

As Bloomberg reports, justices across the ideological spectrum questioned whether President Barack Obama complied with the Constitution when he appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board during a Senate break.

Via Bloomberg,

U.S. Supreme Court justices suggested they may curb the president’s power to make temporary appointments without Senate approval, as the court took up a constitutional standoff between the White House and congressional Republicans.

Hearing arguments today in Washington, justices across the ideological spectrum questioned whether President Barack Obama complied with the Constitution when he appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board during a Senate break.

A company facing NLRB sanctions, backed by Senate Republicans, says the chamber wasn’t in a recess when Obama made the appointments. Several justices today suggested they accepted that characterization.

“It really is the Senate’s job” to determine whether the chamber is in recess, said Justice Elena Kagan, one of Obama’s two appointees to the high court.

The case also may affect 1,000 decisions and orders issued by the NLRB since January 2012, when Obama made the appointments.

  1. This corrupt court will rein in Obama’s powers? Are you joking? They passed Citizens United, ceding all voting powers to the corporations, silencing the voices of the people for good.
    Good God!
    Whoever wrote this needs to wake up and review some of the rulings of this dreadful court……it is the worst we have ever had in our history. None of them care a scrap about the people, the nation…..just how they can line their greedy pockets.
    PLEASE!
