The ACLJ (American Center for Law and Justice) is filing a lawsuit against Obama regarding the 4 “Recess” appointments made earlier this week.
Yesterday, in my article “Emperor Obama Has Decreed…Let It Be So!!!” I stated that Obama seemed to have made himself an Emperor rather than President. In that article, I outlined how the Constitution had been ignored by these appointments.
Apparently, the ACLJ is in complete agreement.
Today, on their website, the ACLJ quotes Obama’s Deputy Solicitor General, Neal Katyal in 2010 as stating, “The — the recess appointment power can work in — in a recess. I think our office has opined the recess has to be longer than 3 days. And — and so, it is potentially available to avert the future crisis that — that could — that could take place with respect to the board.”
Therein, as I wrote yesterday, is the exact problem.
The Senate is NOT in recess.
In a Pro Forma session, a Senator must appear on the floor of the Senate, even if only for seconds, once every three days.
This is precisely what has occurred since the REST of the Senate went home just days before Christmas.
For Obama to make ANY recess appointments during a Pro Forma session of the Senate IS a direct violation of the United States Constitution.
In violation of the Constitution are the appointments of Richard Cordray as the Director of the new (as of last July) Consumer Protection Bureau and 3 appointments, Deputy Labor Secretary Sharon Block, union lawyer Richard Griffin and NLRB counsel Terence Flynn, to the National Labor Relations Board.
What has occurred, because of these 4 appointments, is a Constitutional Crisis.
While some may believe this to be rather strong language, it is far from it. In fact, it is a simple reflection of reality.
The President of the United States has willfully violated the Constitution of the United States and his sworn vow to uphold it.
Upon inauguration, a president vows the following:
“I, (insert name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
The National Patriot submits, that should Obama be allowed to “get away” with this willful disregard of the Constitution and his sworn vow to defend the Constitution, any president henceforth could do so also.
In proceeding with these appointments, done while the senate was still in session, Obama has not only defied the United States Constitution but he is also in contempt of congress.
If this is NOT a Constitutional Crisis, I for one would certainly like to know what WOULD constitute such.
If you think calling this a Constitutional Crisis is strong, what I am about to say will shock you.
There can be only ONE response to a President who WILLFULLY violates the Constitution.
Therefore, The National Patriot calls upon you, our readers to act.
1) Share this article everywhere you can.
2) Send a link to this article to YOUR congressmen and women AND to your senators…REGARDLESS of their party affiliation.
3) DEMAND articles of impeachment be brought forth against Obama.
A list of “All Govt. Contacts” can be found at the top of our blogroll on our home page or by clicking here.
In our opinion, any Congressperson or Senator who does NOT take a stand FOR impeachment is also in violation of THEIR oath of office as doing nothing DOES nothing to defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
This, friends and Patriots, is a SEMINAL moment in our nation’s history.
This President, Obama, cannot be allowed to willfully violate our constitution without recourse. Simply nullifying these UNCONSTITUTIONAL appointments is not enough.
This MUST be dealt with in the strongest manner possible and as quickly as possible lest a dangerous precedent be set for all future Presidents and Members of Congress.
