Pres Obama just keeps the hits coming. The last minute appointments are decisive, one defended a police murdering Black panther, and the other
spear headed the transgender mandate that is under litigation now and she played a key role in the Rolling Stone rape hoax story.
Also Obama taking this opportunity this late in the game will make sure Trump won't make any appointees until 2020. Nice.

The cop killer that Debo Adegbile defended and helped to spread false info (fake news) about the case, created racist accusations about the Philly police and they are upset that Obama wants to put this person on the Commission on Civil Rights.


One of the appointees is Debo Adegbile, who was previously nominated to the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division but was blocked by a bipartisan group of senators due to his defense of former Black Panther and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Unlike that nomination, Adegbile’s appointment — which pro-police groups have described as a “slap in the face” — does not require congressional approval.

The other appointee spearheaded a transgender mandate that is tied up in the courts.


The other appointee is Catherine Lhamon, the assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education, who spearheaded the Obama administration’s transgender mandate currently the subject of litigation. Lhamon has close ties to left-wing activists and played a key role in the infamous Rolling Stone rape hoax.


So by Obama appointing these 2 peaches, Trump will be deprived of his appointees until 2020 when 2 other super smart commissioners reach the end of their term.


The commission is made up of eight members, four of which are appointed by the president and do not require congressional approval. Due to Obama’s last-minute appointments, Trump will not have the opportunity to appoint a commissioner until July 2020, when commissioners Karen Narasaki and Patricia Timmons-Goodson reach the end of their terms.

Can't he just say "Your fired!"?
He's pretty good at that.

Edited to add (figured I shouldn't be lazy and look it up):


In 1983, Reagan attempted to fire three members of the commission. They sued the administration in federal court to stay on. The authorizing legislation stated that a president could only fire a commissioner for "misbehavior in office," and it was clear that the terminations were the result of disagreements over policy. A compromise brokered in the Senate resulted in the current hybrid group of eight, half appointed by the president and half by the Congress, with six-year terms that do not expire with the inauguration of a new president. Since that time the commission has struggled to remain independent, and its agenda has oscillated between liberal and conservative aims as factions among its members have ebbed and waned.

Maybe he should use an executive order. That seems popular.

A simple vote of Congress can easily change the terms of anyone serving on the commission. These appointments are just another vestige of an ending presidency.

Is the commission even still needed?

Maybe they should look into just disbanding the whole thing?

He should have appointed the cop with 4 bodies in his yard. That would make people happy.

Obama can sit and watch while window shopping or maybe while scrap booking and see the cat crap sandwich with no bread he left Trump.

It looks like Wikipedia is saying that Trump will be able to



Under the re-charter, the Commission was given eight members rather than the original six. Only half would be appointed by the President, and a President would ordinarily have to be elected to two terms before he could appoint more than two. First-term Presidents would thus ordinarily have to wait a year or two before they would have any representation at all, and it would take time before all the appointees of previous Presidents would rotate off. The remaining four members would be appointed by Congressional leaders of both houses and both parties. All of this was thought to be crucial to maintaining the Commission's independence from the President, which in turn was thought necessary to the Commission's role as a civil rights watch dog. Since then, the Commission has sometimes been a thorn in the side of sitting Presidents.


So it sounds like Trump could have representation sooner than 2020.

No the Federal Workers have a jam-up Union to prevent being fired,,,, but ---- Trump can reassign them to other positions if that becomes necessary...

perhaps by that time, the Trump Administration will have Liberalism and Progressive-ism deemed as mental disabilities
sort of like how Obama deemed Christians and anyone else who criticised Islam as being domestic terrorists

He definitely didn't mind using them drones did he?

Did Obama sit down and ask himself who is the most decisive people I can pick.

Maybe Hillary would have been a better pick for one of them?

Not one damned thing. Thats why it should really show folks on the opposite side of the aisle that the hope was real. They were SO confident that this guy was THE GUY.. you know, the guy to fix the mess we find ourselves in once we get old enough to see what a mess it really is. They believed it. Wholeheartedly. What a horrible crushing sound mustve been heard when Obama broke all those truly hopeful hearts by being just another POS politician. People are pissed off. People of color are double pissed off. Obama will never walk down the sidewalks of Chicago again.. he'd have his ass kicked every few blocks or so.

well, they are democrats so they won`t be able to walk the straight and narrow path it shouldn`t be hard to catch them in some misbehavior in office.

What is the Transgender mandate? You mean allowing Transgender kids to use the bathroom of their identity. The hysterical reaction to that is what caused the need for intervention. Whatever has happened to the human race whether by evolution or by the chemicals in food, air, water, and medicine. Trans kids are real and it's a terrible situation they have to deal with.

Personally as offensive as I find many of Obama policy I honestly think this is a pointless arguement and the courts will rule with the students who are trans most likely.

Hey gay marriage is over so I guess the folks who want to control people's lives are needing something to fight. I can't wait for the new showdown with abortion. That should take up good public discourse time. Maybe we can talk about abortion and Transgender kids for the next two decades while the real problems finish off the country.

Right I can make a list for you of the right and their wide stances, old speakers molesting little boys, hell even newt had to resign for getting caught with prostitutes.

They are all scum save a few people the media trashes for standing up for things like balancing a budget.
