WOW! Supreme Court Finds Obama Violated the Constitution in a 6-2 Decision

13
20025

Justices Kagan and Breyer voted with Justice Roberts, Alito, Thomas and Kennedy in a 6-2 decision ruling that Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he appointed a general counsel to the NLRB after the Senate refused to confirm him.

It’s ironic given the fact that the former president is a constitutional lawyer.

The Free Beacon reported:

The court ruled Tuesday that Obama appointee Lafe Solomon illegally served as acting general counsel to the National Labor Relations Board from 2010 to 2013. Solomon, who once violated the agency’s ethics rules, should have vacated the position in accordance with the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (FVRA) after the Senate refused to take up his nomination to serve as permanent general counsel in 2011, the court found in a 6-2 opinion authored by Chief Justice John Roberts. The appointment was an “end-run around” the Constitution.

“We cannot cast aside the separation of powers and the Appointments Clause’s important check on executive power for the sake of administrative convenience or efficiency,” the majority ruled.

Obama, like the Democrats interrogating Judge Neil Gorsuch this week, believe the Constitution is a “living document” to be manipulated to the will of the left. He once described the Constitution as “a work in progress” that “can evolve for the good of all Americans…”

It was only meant to inspire according to him.

He and his Democrat Party members believe jurists should be legislators and the Supreme Court should become another body of politicians.

The former president IS NOT a Constitutional lawyer. He’s never practiced law. He once taught as an ADJUNCT professor, a constitutional law class. But that hardly qualifies him as anything approaching a constitutional scholar.

Obama was ALLEGEDLY a constitutional lawyer. Since he sealed all his records, how do we really know for sure?

You will hear people talk about the “liberal” decisions that Scalia made. That cuts to the heart of the person making the statement. Scalia made neither liberal nor conservative decisions. He made Constitutional decisions. Ginsburg should never have been on the bench. In her eyes the Constitution says whatever wild as liberal thing she wished it said.

The US Constitution IS a living document, in that it is not “unchangeable”. It has, within it’s text, the method that is to be used to amend and update it. The problem is that the method is difficult, as the framers wanted to make sure that changes weren’t made just in the heat of a fleeting wind of change. Democrats know that they can’t get the changes they want made by following the rules, so they try to change them by ignoring or circumventing the rules.

Unfortunately they have added too many unconstitutional amendments to it that have diluted or destroyed many of our original freedoms.

The document was meant to delineate the powers and to put boundaries on them, constrain the politicians. If it is to be changed, then all hell can break loose. As it is, the document is routinely ignored.
