Check Out What Really Happened

More evidence Obama is at war with the Constitution – or more accurately, his globalist masters are at war with it. The following is from The Hill today:

Republican leaders in the House and Senate are blasting President Obama’s move to recess-appoint a key nominee as an “unprecedented power grab.”

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said the president “arrogantly circumvented the American people” in his effort to recess-appoint a key nominee and argued the move ”fundamentally endangers” Congress’s ability to check the “excesses of the executive branch.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called the effort an “extraordinary and entirely unprecedented power grab … [that] would have a devastating effect on the checks and balances that are enshrined in our constitution.”

Article Two, Clause 3 of the Constitution on recess appointments reads as follows:

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session. (Emphasis added.)

The Senate is not currently in recess. It is in a “pro forma” session, in other words a session that is not considering formal business. Senate Republicans did this to prevent Obama from appointing Richard Cordray as head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during recess.

But the Obama administration went ahead anyway. “They have decided no one can stop them,” said a Democrat in the know.

“This is a blatant violation of the Constitution and he’s doing it simply to pick a fight with congressional Republicans and energize his base,” writes the Ace of Spades HQ blog.

It looks like Obama will get away with it. Republicans are more or less powerless to stop this violation of the Constitution, especially with an election coming up. If they try a lawsuit or hearings on impeachment, it will feed right into Obama’s re-election machine. His re-election campaign will focus on taking Republicans to task for their perceived foot dragging on his economic measures supposedly designed to get a dead-in-the-water economy moving again.

Beyond partisan politics, though, the move is designed serve as another blow to the Constitution. As we noted in July, there is currently a concerted effort underway to portray the Constitution as antiquated, outdated and even ridiculous.
