"Presidential powers" are only for certain presidents.

Congrats to the USA for making it through the "group of death" and on to the next round of the World Cup. I just watched the game against Germany. (I am home, and this has nothing to do with the World Cup being on. I just happen to feel a bit under the weather....) They were outclassed on a wet pitch by a better German team. Still, even though they lost the game they won the battle.


So anyway, "the man" continues to try to show the Negro in the White House who is really in charge.


In a test run to find out the mood for an impeachment battle, John Boehner and his pals are planning to sue the president. And today the supremes ruled that the Negro in chief is forgetting his place here in America.


"The US Supreme Court today limited a president's power to make recess appointments when the White House and the Senate are controlled by opposite parties, scaling back a presidential authority as old as the republic.
The case arose from a political dispute between President Obama and Senate Republicans, who claimed he had no authority to put three people on the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 when the Senate was out of town.

He used a president's power, granted by the Constitution, to "fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate." But the Republicans said the Senate was not in recess at the time the appointments were made, because every three days a senator went into the chamber, gaveled it to order, and then immediately called a recess. " [Source]

Oh my! Mr. President I feel your pain. What you have to understand is that rules that apply to other presidents do not necessarily apply to you.

As for the lawsuit, well.....

"In response, White House press secretary Josh Earnest accused congressional Republicans of obstruction and said they had left Obama with little option but to make greater use of his executive authority.


"The fact that they are considering a taxpayer-funded lawsuit against the president of the United States for doing his job, I think, is the kind of step that most Americans wouldn't support," Earnest said.


The suit would be filed on behalf of the House and its mere existence would likely set off a partisan struggle. Three Republicans and two Democrats comprise a bipartisan group charged with overseeing House legal matters.
The group must meet to approve filing a suit on behalf of the House, and a party-line vote is all but certain.


Boehner strongly brushed aside a question of whether impeachment proceedings could result from the suit. "This is not about impeachment. This is about his (Obama's) faithfully executing the laws of our country," he said."


When a politician like John Boehner says that something isn't about something; you just know that it is about that something.


Still, I think I speak for quite a few people in this country and say, bring it on.

He did have a point, the NLRB is an important agency that the republicans want to eliminate. When in the hands of a dem prez they usually have labor friendly members and rulings which is important because when a repub gets in the wh and appoints anti-labor members labor gets set back. If the repubs refuse to confirm any new members or insist on strongly anti-labor candidates the prez has no choice but to do an end around because the number of cases waiting for resolution are growing and we can't just wait for the next repub to appoint his folks cause we know where that ends.

Shady_Grady said...

While the reason for opposition in the Senate may well be stupid, self-serving, racist, etc, it doesn't change the fact that the Senate, not the President gets to decide when the Senate is in session. It was a 9-0 ruling so apparently not even the President's appointees thought he had any sort of case.

I think from a separation of powers pov it was a good ruling. I disagree with the idea that the President has no choice to do a or b, if a or b are outside of his powers. Do what I want or I'm just going to do it anyway is not how our system works.

PilotX said...

I think the dems need to take note. The next repub prez should face the same level of opposition if there is no compromise on key issues but as usual they won't. This wouldn be an issue if they had let the repubs eliminate the filibuster back in '04 I think.

Klinsi has turned the USA into 'Deutschland-lite', a German style counter-attacking team. Not particularly exciting to watch, but highly effective.

Up next probably Belgium. De Rode Duivels are an insanely talented team. Arguably the most naturally gifted football team in the world, certainly the most talented team in Europe. Origi - genius, Januzai - Genius, Hazard - genius, Vincent Kompany - genius, finest defender in the world.

they are hamstrung by a conservative, risk-averse coach, and their own internal divisions, as well as a lack of pace in midfield. Fast counter-attacking teams like USA and Germany are exactly the type of teams that can beat Belgium.

If Belgium were playing Argentina , Chile, Uruguay, pretty much any team but Brasil I would take them to win. But against the USA they will most probably lose. Football isn't only about talent.

Of course, you 'feel' Obama's pain. You are an Obamaholic and enmeshed with anything he does, whether it's legal or not.

It's too bad you can't 'feel' the pain of your own race, which Obama is responsible for. Of course, it's hard to feel anything for anybody else when your focus is worshiping everything Obama does.

THIS President broke the law. I remember that day and was happy he did it because those racist Repubs were obstructing damn near everything Obama tried to do. However, I also KNEW what Obama did was WRONG.

Nevertheless, I rejoiced because he was Black and I hated the GOP and Tea Party. But I was sure the GOP would not take Obama's action lying down. It was clearly outside his powers.

I am glad he did it. It was an action that said, "I'm sick and tired of you effing with me...F^*K you racist mofos!"


Nevertheless, Obama is the FIRST President to violate his Presidential powers.

But I DO understand why he did it. Racism can make a bm dysfunctional, angry and depress.

It's a bitch being a bm in America.

Not only is it depressing to be Black in America, there is a wall of shame that comes with it. Feeling SHAME keeps Black folks from being effective against their biggest haters and obstructionists. It is a position that has kept us in check by the wm for centuries.

Whites need us to feel shameful in order for them to feel superior. SHAME is a powerful feeling that imprisons and eats away at the soul....check it out people.

"Obama Seeking $500 Million To Train, Arm Syrian Rebels"

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/27/world/middleeast/obama-seeks-500-million-to-train-and-equip-syrian-opposition.html?_r=0

The Syria program is part of a broader $65.8 billion overseas operations request that the administration sent to Capitol Hill Thursday. The package includes $1 billion to help stabilize nations bordering Syria that are struggling with the effects of the civil war. It also formalizes a request for a previously announced $1 billion to strengthen the U.S. military presence in Central and Eastern Europe amid Russia's threatening moves in Ukraine.


While we are on the subject of Executive Orders...

Lets count how many Executive Orders O" has enacted for the LGBT community VS
The Black community...

even without listing the excutive Orders LOOK at how he has courted , and pushed for all manner of social reforms for the LGBT community

Pushing to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Opening the door for federal employees to receive coverage for gender transition surgery

Dropping the legal defense for the Defense of Marriage Act

Extending equal rights to federal workers

Eliminating funding for schools that engage in transgender discrimination

Ending Medicare’s ban on gender reassignment coverage

Prosecuting domestic violence in same-sex relationships


Compare this to the things that he has done SPECIFICALLY for the Black Community.....

Yet if someone EVEN mentions a "Black " issue....somehow we as Black Americans Morph into colorless American People...because of course "Hes Not the President of Black America"


Carry on your Jig Field....

Its amusing watching you sidestep the major issues for the dog and pony show that is Democrats VS Republicans....

"And today the supremes ruled that the Negro in chief is forgetting his place here in America."

I don't know that I agree with that interpretation. I'm willing to give the SCOTUS the benefit of the doubt on their motivations. I think they mostly arrived at their idiotic decision by solely considering the letter of the law and completely ignoring the spirit of the law.

Saying that "Congress is in session when it says it's in session" is utterly stupid. If you show up for five minutes, say "Yes, we're in session," and then go home without ever making any attempt to legislate, then it's pretty darn obvious you are NOT in session.

I think this was less a ruling meant to spank Obama than it was about the SCOTUS's cowardice in refusing to confront Republicans over their extralegal shenanigans.

In any event, the ruling is largely irrelevant. Harry Reid finally grew a spine and eliminated the GOP's right to fuck up the government -- er, I mean abusively filibuster appointments -- which is what had driven Obama to make those recess appointments in the first place.

So a brief history lesson; Wingnuts blew up the economy, by taking us into bogus wars and at the same time giving out tax cuts. Dumbest shit ever. Along with Medicare Part D, and then meeting the night Obama came into power and agreed to go against everything Obama wanted. And then blame him for everything. What does the Dumbocrats and Obama do?, they don't bring this up. Republicans control the talking points in the media and everyone ignores the facts that despite any efforts made by Obama, The Republicans won't cooperate. So in order to get things done Obama has to do what he has to. But this ruling is going to hurt the Republicans more in the future with endless wars etc..

Wrong. The economy during most of the Bush years was actually quite good, despite having to overcome 9/11.

The Bush tax cuts created a huge stimulus for the middle class. Bush's problem is that he tried to be liberal-lite, handing out goodies like Medicare Part D and going along with liberal expansions in education and social service spending, instead of demanding sacrifices to pay for his wars.

But what blew up the economy was when things got out of control after the democrats took congress in 2006. The Pelosi congress blocked action to reign in in Freddie and Fannie before it was too late, and these democrat slush funds brought down the whole economy.

The worst result of all this is that it let an incompetent Marxist community organizer get elected President. Everything he has done, from wrecking the healthcare system to blocking the Keystone pipeline to 5 trillion in new debt, has worsened the economic problems of America.

The best thing for this country would be to impeach his ass out of office as soon as possible, and then hold on until that idiot Biden stumbles his way through the remainder of his term.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

"You mean the same level of opposition Bush faced?"
--------------------

Bush didn't face any major structural opposition until the last 2 years of his presidency, and that started under a lame-duck republiklan congress after he'd blown a war that his own team publicly defined as a "slam dunk" and his attorney general had to slink out of Washington under cloud if not indictment for perjury. Of course his power was checked after that. What has Mr. Obama done to compare to that?

PilotX said...

Oh yeah WC, they're going to regret it if the Dems make them pay but past history doesn't bode well on that front. They would have regretted eliminating the filibuster but the Dems fell for that gang of 7 shit and Bush got his appointments anyway.

Bomber-O has placed himself in a dubious situation. On one hand, O has the right to make recess appointments. However, the Senate wasn’t in full recess. Furthermore the Senate wasn’t in full operation to say Yay or Nay with the required amount of votes.

The US Constitution is silent on the Senate’s voting authority when not in full capacity. This is quite interesting!

I think it is a shame, the outward disrespect that has been shown to our President. Even though I do not 100% agree with everything that Obama has done, most presidents have done things in the past that the general public does not agree with. But for Obama it is always a witch hunt to prove him incompetent. It is sad, that no matter how much education you have, some people will still just see you as black.

I’m guessing you just make this shit up as you go along, don’t you? What you say certainly has no basis in what we down here on Planet Earth refer to as ‘reality”.


The Bush tax cuts along with the $3tn spent fighting two wars caused a massive growth in America’s public debt – something over $4tn in the period 2001 to 2007. In that time public debt rose from 1.4% of GDP in 2001 to 6.8% of GDP in 2008. More than 450 distinguished economists including ten Nobel Laureates had tried to warn Bush off making the cuts, but he thought he knew better. He said the “Laffer curve” effect would actually increase tax revenues. As we now know, tax revenues fell…

In the end the tax cuts did not help the poor (poverty rates increased from 11.25% in 2000 to 12.3% in 2006) or the middle classes. Only 4% of Americans were better off as a result of the cuts. I don’t think I need tell you which 4% that was.

As for attempting to blame Pelosi for Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac that’s very amusing. Let’s give a Republican chance to tell the truth shall we?

In 2005, the Republican controlled House of Representatives passed a GSE reform bill (Federal Housing Finance Reform Act) which "would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership" However, the Bush administration opposed the bill and it died in the Senate. Of the bill and its reception by the Bush White House, Ohio Republican Mike Oxley (the bill's author) said: "The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis. All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this. What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute."

Ouch!

Kinky.Con said...

"Randall Crocker, the lawyer for special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, noted the investigation has been halted, saying, “At the time the investigation was halted, Governor Walker was not a target of the investigation. At no time has he been served with a subpoena.”

Crocker issued the statement a week after a court document Schmitz wrote late last year and made public late last week identified Walker as being part of an alleged “criminal scheme” to coordinate with outside groups and violate campaign finance laws.

Crocker said no conclusions have been made about whether there is enough evidence to charge anyone with a crime.

“Contained in these documents is a reference to the request for production of documents that relates to an alleged criminal scheme. Gov. Walker’s name was included in this reference,” Crocker said. “While these documents outlined the prosecutor’s legal theory, they did not establish the existence of a crime; rather, they were arguments in support of further investigation to determine if criminal charges against any person or entity are warranted.”

Crocker added, “Mr. Schmitz has made no conclusions as to whether there is sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime.”'

TNB. Always threatening people with "I'll kick your ass, MF." It's always "if ": "If you had a handle to your name, I'd tear you apart on FN"...

"If the GOP had cooperated, Obama would have been a great President,"

"If they would give Obama a chance,"

"If Whites weren't so racist, Blacks would be able to do better"

"If Obama weren't Black, he could do something for us Blacks" if.....if...if...if....

Blacks have no other power than to run their mouths out of fear, like Black Sage.

For decades it has been known that AAs esp today, are all mouth and no action. The CBC, the Presidency, the NAACP, and anything or anyone connected with providing black support are basically unskillful and powerless.


Most of all, the reason we Blacks are powerless is we lack unification as a group and race. As I look over our history, we have ALWAYS been splintered with the exception of MLK, MalcolmX...but those two were a 'flash in the pan' compared to the rest of our history....It's a damn shame.

Obama has said a lot of things and made promises, but has been basically powerless to carry them out, UNLESS he is doing the bidding of others who are not Black.

Let's face it. We are last, and will continue to be last UNLESS Blacks awaken to their continuing downward movement as a people. To change, requires a different kind of thinking which requires COURAGE, and power.

AAs are short on both. Slavery and Jim Crow has been heavy karma of fear, shame and powerlessness as a group.

Watching Obama, his actions and behaviors continue to prove our destiny as weak and being shamed in America.

As I watch the Latinos and the LGBT move ahead of us, it confirms to me that nothing short of a miracle will 'move' us to do 'what must be done' to keep us from continuously hitting the bottom of the barrel.

Poor Obama. He must be tired and beaten from the relentless political beatings of the GOP as well as the Democrats who are pretty much the GOP in a softer disguise.

Don't ask what you got from the white house...

Ask how Franklin Raines profited from taxpayers.

Former Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines and two other top executives have agreed to a $31.4 million settlement with the government announced today over their roles in a 2004 accounting scandal.

Raines, former Fannie chief financial officer Timothy Howard and former controller Leanne Spencer were accused in a civil lawsuit in December 2006 with manipulating earnings over a six-year period at the company, the largest U.S. financer and guarantor of home mortgages.

http://seattletimes.com/html/businesstechnology/2004358433_webraines18.html

Considering the stealing government employees lost the case and have to pay the government back, why does the liberal seattle times keep using the word "allegedly?"


The stock options were valued at $15.6 million at the time they were issued to Raines

Sounds like a nice government job. Do a crappy job, crash the economy and make hundreds of millions in bonuses.


The regulators alleged an accounting fraud at Washington-based Fannie Mae that included manipulations to reach quarterly earnings targets so that Raines, Howard, Spencer and other company executives could pocket hundreds of millions in bonuses from 1998 to 2004.

Sounds just like the VA scandal. Government employees lied just to profit off taxpayers.
Now we see why school teachers get paid so little, high ranking democrats are taking all the money.

Same stuff, different presidents.

And we the people keep voting the same crooks back into office.

Which he wouldn't have been able to do if the Bush White House had not torpedoed the Federal House Financing Reform Act.

"Hey PurpleCow, you never responded about what democrat president jimmy carter policy transformed America and started it on a path to income inequality.

And please keep your facts about the transformation of America to when and what started it.

Do you not know what carter policy caused the transformation of America?

Is that why you keep dodging the question?"


Firstly why the flying fuck should I keep my arguments to the start of the inequality process? Who the fuck do you think you are telling me what to do?

Obviously you have not understood my arguments up till now, so I will try and explain them again. I don't know how much simpler I can make it - but I will try.

1.There was no Carter financial policy that transformed America. None at all. Zero. Nada. Niente. Nicks.

2. I'm guessing (not being a professional economist) that the oil-shock that hit American productivity had a role in the slight uptick in inequality in Carter's term. Also Carter's policies of voluntary wage restraint had something to with it, I would guess.

2. Reagan was elected on a promise to make the rich much richer, because the trickle down/rising tide lifts all boats bollocks.

3. So that's the difference, see? Carter was overtaken by global affairs, Reagan CHOSE to make America more unequal. The rise in inequality is not one process, it is two. There was a slight uptick of the inequality graph under Carter, then it took off close to exponentialy under Raygun.

3. As we all now know, trickle-down didn't work. The rich chose to invest the vast new riches in off-shore tax avoidance schemes, as they always do.

4. Thus began 'The Great Divergence' as it is called and the death of the American dream.

"It doesn't seem like Hillary is fond of Obama."

No shit Sherlock! You work that out all by your little self? The rest of us kind of got that when Obama smashed her Presidential campaign a few years back.

"No wonder PC thinks homosexuals are born that way."

As opposed to what? Do they catch homosexuality by standing next to somebody whose already gay at a bus stop? Is it like the measles, is that what you are saying?

":Why isn't PC talking about how Democrats block attempts to reform Freddie and Fannie?"

Why aren't you talking about how the Bush White House stopped the reform of Freddie and Fannie? Take a look at what that poor Republican said about how the Bush White House gave him the finger.

Why aren't YOU talking about that?

Mmmmmmmmmmmm?

"If you were actually smarter than you think you are, you would have known "Bush tax cuts" were not a major contributor to the decline of tax revenue during that time period."

I've already posted evidence from peer-reviwed academic papers that demonstrate that Bush's tax cuts contributed massively to the define of tax revenue and the increase in the federal deficit.

If you have peer-reviewed evidence to the contrary, I'd like to see it.

Show us your facts or go home. Put up or shut up.

Impeachment time said...

A 9-0 supreme court ruling against him, including the two justices he appointed?

This guy is done.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Nope, he is not done, and he will serve out his term too. I guarantee you that!

I'm sure you've heard of that old saying, "When you dig one ditch, dig two."

Anytime, you purposely set out to do or bring about evilminded ill will on another human being that did you no harm, which is what the GOP has done since he was elected, it boomerangs. The GOP is blindly doing something that is not right and what goes around comes around or karma is something else, but it's always seven times worse.

The GOP will pay for their mistakes before he leaves office.

El Supremo,

The economy was fucked up during the Bush years which is why I made a ton of money during that time on the housing market.

Obama hasn't enforced the laws against war crimes. If they don't want him to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce, it doesn't make sense that they should get to pick and choose which ones they want him to enforce either. If he has to enforce laws against illegal immigration or penalties for drug use, he should have to enforce laws against war crimes too.

"Peer-reviewed"? That's rich.

The Bush tax cuts made the system more progressive and were a massive stimulus to the economy, resulting in much higher tax receipts than would have been realized without the cuts.
