News Briefs – Volume XXXI – Very UnCONSTITUTIONAL

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life

Brief 1:  One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term.  I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador.  Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess.  The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess.  Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen.  Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.

Lawless

As I sit in my house and earlier at work I am struck at how the world turns and turns as our country fades and fades.  If you read this blog you know that I don’t like the policies of Obama, Democrats, liberals, and progressives.  Their positions only make sense if the goal is the end of American as it was founded and prospered these last few centuries.  The latest bile to spew from the White House were two, in my opinion, huge decisions by our “Banana Republic” chief executive – B. Hussein Obama.
