Obama Appointments Ruled Unconstitutional

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 25, 2013

On January 4, 2012 President Obama made three “recess appointments” to the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board).  Through recess appointments the President bypassed the Senate, who by law must approve them.  This tactic was employed so that the President could stuff the NLRB with a pro-labor union board, in this case union lawyer Richard Griffin, Democrat pro-union Sharon Block and Republican Terence Flynn.  (Flynn left the board prior to the end of 2012.)

The Wall Street Journal reported that a federal appeals court today ruled Obama’s actions Unconstitutional.  The court went further, indicating that as a result, the NLRB lacked the required quorum in making various rulings and decisions bringing into question their legitimacy and validity.

It is not surprising that Obama’s actions were found Unconstitutional.  This President flaunts the Constitution as he makes mandates and executive orders at an accelerating rate on all sorts of issues.  If indeed Obama is an expert on Constitutional law, as so often promoted by the mainstream media, then his actions are not only troubling, but scary.
