After Obama’s illegal and anticonstitutional appointments yesterday, there is no question that we have a tyrant in the White House. It’s practically official now. For Obama has gone “full-rogue unconstitutional” and made key appointments brazenly against the law and the Constitution.
Yes, I just repeated myself. It is that important, and too many are ignoring it. We have a president who just willfully broke the law and violated the Constitution to make appointments a Congress not in recess opposed.
And this is not just a procedural dispute. It is a willful violation of the Constitution. The governor of Texas can no more declare Texas has five U. S. senators now than can a president ignore the law and the Constitution like this.
If we let Obama get away with it, I fear for this country.
By the way, I warned you again and again that this man has a totalitarian impulse. And I am getting tired of being right. This complete disregard of the rule of law is yet one more spasm of Obama’s totalitarian streak.
Even Obama’s own lawyers have recognized he cannot do what he just did:
Obama’s own lawyers publicly stated in a 2010 exchange with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts that the president doesn’t consider a congressional recess official — meaning he can’t legally exercise his recess appointment power — until Congress has been gone for three full days. ‘The recess appointment power can work in — in a recess,’ Obama’s Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal said. ‘I think our office has opined the recess has to be longer than three days [to make an appointment].’ The Senate entered a recess on Tuesday, after having held a pro forma session to keep Obama from making any recess appointments. Another was planned for Friday. By making the appointments just one day after the Senate went into a recess, Obama appears to breaking his own administration’s rules and, as scores of Republicans are quick to point out, decades of executive precedent.
