In a unanimous decision, a three Judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals said the President did not have the power to make recess appointments in 2012 to the NLRB (National Relations Board). The decision is an embarrassment and setback for Obama.
The ruling also throws into question Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray’s appointment, also made under the recess circumstance, has been challenged in a separate case.
The President claims that the appointments were justified because the Senate was away on a 20-day recess.
If the decision stands, it means hundreds of decisions issued by the board over more than a year are invalid. It also would leave the five-member labor board with just one validly appointed member, effectively shutting it down. The board is allowed to issue decisions only when it has at least three sitting members.
Recently the President signed Executive Orders that could re-write the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to push his agenda on the ban of “military-style” semi-automatic weapons. The actions of Obama during his 1st term and now entering his 2nd term are starting to reveal that he is not a President of the people, but more of a man whom believes he has absolute power and that laws and rules do not apply to him.
