Judicial Watch Reacts to Supreme Court’s Decision on Recess Appointments

JUNE 26, 2014

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s unanimous judgment that President Obama overstepped his constitutional authority in bypassing the U.S. Senate in making a series of “recess appointments” to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Judicial Watch had jointly filed with the Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) an amici curiae brief in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning (No. 12-1281).

We applaud the Supreme Court’s unanimous judgment that serves to remind this president that he is not king.  President Obama, in his lawlessness, has been acting as the “catch me if you can president.”  The Supreme Court, to its credit, finally caught and restrained Barack Obama’s lawlessness.  Unfortunately, these recess appointments are one of many examples of this president acting outside of his constitutional authority.

According to the Judicial Watch/AEF amici brief:

The President’s alleged Recess appointments to the NLRB are unconstitutional for the primary reason that the Senate was in session at the time of the purported appointments… The President’s declaration that these sessions were invalid disregards the Senate’s authority to determine and administer its own procedures, including when it will recess and how it will conduct its business.

    Boehner plans to file suit against Obama over alleged abuse of executive power is a waste of time.

    >> Obama is a Usurper and Fraud.

    A lawsuit against his “Executive actions”, only lends validity that he IS a qualified President, and will take years.

    >> Arrest him and prosecute him for what he IS, Usurper and Fraud.

    All Americans should be pleased that the Supreme Court slapped down Obama’s action in bypassing Congress to stack the National Labor Relations Board with three of his cronies. Assuming that Obama actually taught constitutional law, let’s hope that his students were not corrupted by his warped interpretation of the powers of the president. Obama’s pattern of disregarding the constitution, bypassing and rewriting our laws and acting as though he is our king, flies in the face of his claim of being a constitutional professor. Now that the Supreme Court has once again put Obama in his place, perhaps Obama might finally understand that there are limits to his authority and that his unconstitutional actions are placing the democrat party in jeopardy by compelling the democrats to publicly attempt to defend his indefensible conduct.
