This Might Go-Down as 'the Day We Lost the Country' if SCOTUS Allows Dubious Obama Recess Appointments

Well, today's the day we have to worry if the wobbly US Supreme Court will uphold what should seem obviously sensible rulings from three lower courts: that the Obama Administration had no business whatsoever claiming short-term congressional breaks to be 'in recess' and then exploiting them to ram-through constitutionally questionable 'recess appointments'.

When questioned, the Obama WH's only response has been 'sue me', which soon became a reality. Since then, a U.S. appeals court in DC -and two others- said that indeed President Obama had violated the Constitution when he used the recess-appointment power to fill seats on the National Labor Relations Board two years ago, back in January 2012. 

The Senate was not meeting then, but it was holding brief "pro-forma sessions"- these sessions are specifically intended to prevent such recess appointments. Alas, the Obama administration claimed that the Senate is 'generally not available' to conduct business during such sessions, and went ahead and did as they pleased anyway, appointing three positions at the NLRB while making a complete end-run around Congress.

The case has now worked it's way up to the SCOTUS, but nothing is an obvious slam-dunk in the bizarre Obama era. Sadly, the last time we expected the highest-court-in-the-land to save us from this lawless regime, constitutionalists were left scratching our heads while Justice Roberts moved Heaven and Earth to basically re-write both Obamacare and the Commerce Clause... all to stick us with the clearly unconstitutional ACA individual mandate.

Everybody can see that Obama was not acting in good faith nor the spirit of the law, except libs and MSM hacks in bed with them. But 'everybody' could see the government has no business forcing citizens to buy a good or service, either... yet here we are, with Obamacare being slowly implemented, relentlessly.

A lot rides on this ruling today- call it an indicator of whether Barack Obama is ever going to be called-upon to obey the laws of this country... or not. What's to stop this power-drunk, one man wrecking ball when the SCOTUS won't defend the Constitution? As a lame-duck, he surely won't care what you think -if he ever did- after this November's elections, and once Obama's been told he doesn't have to follow any rules, either- then it's time to really be scared.

What's John Roberts going to do when Dear Leader finally succeeds in crashing the dollar, puts DHS troops in the streets, and cancels the 2016 elections? Same thing the MSM would do... nothing. Let's just hope for the best today- some think the White House is unlikely to win this case, and it's long past time somebody told Barack Obama 'NO!', isn't it, Justice Roberts? On top of that, you owe us one...
