  1. #1 Board Must Defend Recess Appointments, Court Says

    A federal appeals court allowed a legal challenge to the National Labor Relations Board to move forward on Friday, casting additional doubt on the legitimacy of the Obama administration’s embattled labor arbiter.

    A three-judge panel from the D.C. Circuit Court ordered the board to file a written response defending President Barack Obama’s recess appointments.

    The ruling stems from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation’s (NRTW) appeal to an NLRB ruling that forced non-union employees to pay for union lobbying costs. National Right to Work attorney Glenn Taubman said the board’s decision violates Beck Rights, which allow employees to opt out of union.

    NRTW’s appeal, however, relied more heavily on challenging the legitimacy of the board’s composition than it did the “merits of workers being coerced to pay for unions’ partisan political agenda,” according to Taubman.

    “This is really just about the recess appointments,” he said. “They have no authority to act, and the courts should forbid them from acting on this case or any others.”

    Obama will drag this out until the end of his term.
    He doesn't need any courts, congress or anyone else clogging his system with their stinking laws, he is the law.

    Let us all remember the words of Chief Justice Roberts every time we look to his corner for help, “It Is Not Our Job to Protect the People From the Consequences of Their Political Choices.”

    It is his job and this was one of the most ridiculous statements ever to have left the lips of any justice but it sums up where our system of checks and balances is today.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB
