A federal appeals court has overturned “recess” appointments made by the Kenyan kommie during his first term, citing them as “an abuse of power,” ESH has learned.
The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to O’Bama. The judges ruled that the appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.
But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intrasession” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks.
And the court ruled that the only vacancies that the president can use his powers on are ones that arise when the Senate is in one of those end-of-session breaks. That would all but eliminate the list of positions the president could fill with his recess powers
Don’t count on this ending the unconstitutional abuse of power by the resident Kommie. His flouting of the rule of law has been seen frequently since absconding the throne in Jan 2009.
