Obama's reign of power has been hit again.

He was so sure He could get away with it too.

Not so fast .....

But they will arrogantly attempt to go forward anyway as usual.

A national labor board which has long been accused of making union-friendly decisions was dealt another blow Thursday, after a second federal appeals court found President Obama exceeded his power when he bypassed the Senate to appoint its members.

The ruling by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia once again threatened to upend the National Labor Relations Board's decisions. And it has the potential to stall the board entirely, as well as challenge other federal agencies that have similar appointees.

For now, the Obama administration has tried to disregard the court decisions -- it has already appealed a similar ruling, from a Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to the Supreme Court.


[color=cyan]Both rulings have threatened to throw the labor board, the Consumer Financial Protection Board and other federal agencies with recess appointees into chaos. If they stand, hundreds of decisions by these agencies could be thrown out.

Obama has made 32 recess appointments during his presidency, nearly all of which would be considered invalid under the interpretation of these courts. The rulings could also threaten the recess appointments of previous presidents. President George W. Bush made 141 such appointments in eight years.

It appears that Obama & Co. knows all about circumventing the laws when it serves their agendas best.

and of course, they claim they "didn't know" or blame somebody else when they get caught

Its good to see our judicial system actually standing up to many of the unconstitutional actions of our government lately. The past decade or so.

Congress seems unable or unwilling to stand up to the executive branch as of late.

This could get sticky.... As they note, it could invalidate a WHOLE lot of things going back a good long while. Chaos..... Perhaps it does need done though and better now than after even more has accumulated to have to invalidate. Oh why couldn't they do these things the right way, the first time though? What a mess....

This system has gotten abused more and more though.
