House Speaker John Boehner continues to employ and invest lawmaker's times and energies generating frivolous witch-hunts aimed at President Barack Obama.
The latest of Boehner' shenanigans is threatening to sue the President of The United States. Even more ridiculous is what he wants to sue him for. Not doing his job.
Now John Boehner himself has put up more resistance than anybody to impede any progress this president has attempted to make. He fought him on healthcare, he fought him on Benghazi, he derailed him and us on long-term unemployment, he has impeded budget and deficit projects, and he wants to sue the President for going around him whenever he can to get things done.
All these dog and pony shows and smoke and mirrors business by Boehner and the Barack Obama hater crusades has long ago worn thin and just when we thought no more people could jump aboard this spiraling out of control circus, the Supreme Court managed to squeeze themselves aboard.
Tuesday June 26th, 2014 "The US Supreme Court today limited a president's power to make recess appointments when the White House and the Senate are controlled by opposite parties, scaling back a presidential authority as old as the republic.
The case arose from a political dispute between President Obama and Senate Republicans, who claimed he had no authority to put three people on the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 when the Senate was out of town.
He used a president's power, granted by the Constitution, to "fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate." But the Republicans said the Senate was not in recess at the time the appointments were made, because every three days a senator went into the chamber, gaveled it to order, and then immediately called a recess."
"But the Republicans said the Senate was not in recess at the time the appointments were made, because every three days a senator went into the chamber, gaveled it to order, and then immediately called a recess."
Yes that one bears repeating because it's proof that the Supreme lawmakers of our country are not above selecting a portion of a law or bill and making a ruling on the partial selection.
Talk about scraping the bottom of the "I gotta get something to reel this Negro in barrel." This Supreme Court is ruling based on a fabricated technicality realized out of the very crux of the law itself. The crux becomes a technicality when all it takes is one Senator to go in bang a gavel and call to order a session even if only for a moment, with no other Senators present then bang the gavel again, and declare the session concluded.
It's hard to believe that there are people and entities out there so fixated on dragging down this President that they would stoop to such juvenile acts with no shame at all.
