Earlier today seventy-two Members of Congress introduced a resolution disapproving of President Obama’s actions in making “recess” appointments when the Senate is still in session.

Representative Diane Black (TN-6) stated:

It’s astounding to me that the president is claiming these are recess appointments and within his authority, when Congress was not in fact in recess . . . . These appointments are an affront to the Constitution. No matter how you look at this, it doesn’t pass the smell test.

As Roll Call reports, “The resolution would express the sense of the House that the president misused his authority in making four recent recess appointments.”

This House resolution comes on the heels of a letter sent by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to Attorney General Holder expressing concern over these appointments.

In addition, nearly 40,000 Americans have signed our Petition to Retract Obama’s Unconstitutional Appointments. Take a stand in support of the Constitution, and add your name here.

State Department Uses IRS Playbook

By Matthew Clark1432157351344

Yesterday’s revelation that the State Department is processing (read: stonewalling) 50,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but that none of those emails will be ready for public consumption until sometime in January 2016 is unsurprising. Those emails cover everything from the...
