Obama Blatantly Violates Constitution With Illegal Recess Appointments

On January 4, 2012, in a constitutionally questionable move, President Obama recess appointed three Members to the National Labor Relation Board (NLRB). This announcement bypasses the U.S. Senate confirmation process for presidential nominations.

“We are extremely disappointed that the President has chosen to circumvent the American people’s ability to fully vet and consider these appointments,” said Thayer Long, IEC’s Executive Vice-President/CEO. “This move robs Congress with the responsibility and obligation to provide a check to the authority of the Executive Branch.” 

These appointments have sparked outrage among the business community and Republican leaders who believe this action allows the NLRB to continue its aggressive pro-labor agenda, and will likely be challenged legally. Read More

Obama Signs National Defense Authorization Act Into Law

President Obama signed the National Defense Appropriation Act, a law that unless the Supreme Court overturns it ends the 4th Amendment as we know it.

The National Defense Authorization Act greatly expands the power and scope of the federal government to fight the War on Terror, including codifying into law the indefinite detention of terrorism suspects without trial. Under the new law the US military has the power to carry out domestic anti-terrorism operations on US soil. 

He offered this explanation. "The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. In particular, I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists".
