Justice Scalia Slams Obama On Executive Overreach!by Voice of Reason
President Obama: Liar, Cheat & Thief, Murderer… take your pick. Has he overstepped his authority? Um, let me think, Uh, YES! Allow me to repeat: Liar, Cheat & Thief, Murderer… take your pick. One doesn’t need to ask around long to find someone who is just itching for the “shot heard round the world” that begins civil war here in America.
Americans EVERYWHERE are ready to take their country back, and they are ready to pounce. If you had a chance to catch any of Justice Scalia’s comments the other day, It was nice to see Scalia put Obama in his place. Well, sort of. His place is in a 10×10 cell, but it looks pretty clear from body language, the Supreme Court is going to shut Obama DOWN on his unconstitutional recess appointments.
Good. Start getting used to it. It seems with all the reports of Obama’s drug use and spending time “down,” it might not take too long for him to get used it.
On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia slammed President Barack Obama’s interpretation of the U.S. Constitution during oral arguments over Recess appointments.
The case, National Labor Relations Board vs. Noel Canning, is over whether the president acted legally when he made a series of temporary appointments to the National Labor Relations Board while the Senate was not conducting business but still gavelling in and out every day.
Clause three of the Constitution’s section on presidential powers states that, “The president shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session.”
At issue is if the president acted in poor faith by saying the Senate was not in session. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli argued that the Constitution is ambiguous on the subject.
“It’s been assumed to be ambiguous by self-interested presidents,” Scalia replied. After Scalia’s retort, the court room was filled with “oohs” and laughter, Talking Points Memo reports.
Since the National Labor Relations Board conflict, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has broken centuries of tradition by allowing Senate approval for appointments by majority vote, thereby making the case less consequential to Senate procedure.
But if the Supreme Court rules against the White House, the board’s executive actions will no longer be valid.
