Supreme Court Will Decide Fate Of Checks And Balances

President Obama's January 2012 decision to unilaterally declare the Senate in recess and install three Members to the National Labor Relations Board stands as one of the most egregious usurpations of power in our history.

Using a purported power under the Constitution's recess appointment clause, the President steamrolled the constitutional advice and consent process, seizing away the Senate's confirmation duties.

The legality of the Obama appointments, and the more than 200-year-old Senate confirmation check will be tested as the Supreme Court recently announced that they will review the NLRB v. Noel Canning case, which challenges these appointments.

The Original Meaning of the Recess Appointments Clause

Checks and balances: another shell game.

Like the two-party system, the Constitution's tri-cameral system of "checks and balances" is basically a con-game to continue separating the suckers from their money -- and from control of their own lives. One part OF THE GOVERNMENT is going to keep the other two parts in line? Do tell. That's like saying if one Mafia gang treats you poorly, you can complain to a different branch of the same gang.

It's all the same gang. And you aren't in it.

These robbed charlatans killed checks and balances in

1933, and it has been baby steps since then.

Now that we realize how

Now that we realize how powerful the NSA is, we know there is the high possibility that the information it has on people in high places can be used for coercion or blackmail. I'm beginning to realize why more and more unconstitutional judgments are being rendered so often. We already know how much political opponents of those in charge in the federal govt are being targeted. We see the mainstream media being manipulated as well as spying on journalists. It's really a no-brainer to think the NSA is using the information it has to it's advantage.

Okay, so then who checks and

Okay, so then who checks and balances the supreme court, DHS?

Okay, then who checks and balances the DHS? Aministration!

Okay, so then who checks and balances the Administration? Santa clause?

Full HONEST government transparency IS, THEE, ULTIMATE, check and balance

If you are unwilling, or unable, maybe you should bloody well start thinking, WHY, what is it that you do, that you are not allowed to know or tell

There is not and never will

There is not and never will be honest and transparent government so long as ambitious people are involved. Take people out of the decisionmaking process and they will merely find another choke point to exploit for personal gain. This is reality, just as it ever has been since humans have been around.

Your right

Hence limited, very limited govt that does not provide services under which they fleece all of us.

To find the ruling... follow the money!

It is simple to find their ruling... just follow the protection needed for the hegemony enjoyed by the FED!

What the FED and it's owners wish, forms the determination of all the decisions, actions, and policies of congress and the courts! If it were not so, congress would long ago have impeached the POTUS and the Court, seeking servants of the people's choice, and thus enabling true constitutional freedom!

Therefore it is simple. Follow the FED and it's owner's addictions, and you can predict future decisions... judicial, economic, legislative, militaristic!

Even Hollywood is on board! Their movies have been a prescient reminder of tyranny for decades already!

Make no mistake...

Anything dreamed up by Hollywood has become 'fair game' for realistic use. By this means the garbage of Hollywood serves to condition and desensitize the already dumbed-down electorate.

This includes the most shocking of events involving the most revered symbols of the free Republic, especially when it comes to the need to distract from the evil of the FED, or to create false flags for the impetus to change towards Orwellian tyranny!

Do not be surprised or shocked into inaction!

Possible ruling

They could rule that the U.S. Senate is no longer the body that represents the states and thus has no Constitutional authority for oversight. The 17th Amendment relieved them of duty and are no more than a second house of Congress.

All one big joke.

Or the Supreme Court could rule that since they adjourned sine die just after the civil war kicked off, they haven't been in session since. They are a corporate body, nothing more. Not even a legitimate government.

But if they ruled that way, it would expose the fraud. So doubt that.

Have no idea which way they

Have no idea which way they will rule on this issue which is sad because they should rule against him.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.
