Oppose Pres. Obama's Unconstitutional Appointments

President Obama is creating another constitutional crisis with his four recent “recess appointments,” bypassing the authority of the U.S. Senate. His unconstitutional actions contradict centuries of precedent, as well as recent legal analysis by Obama’s Justice Department, both the Clinton and Bush White House counsel’s office, and President Obama’s own statements as a U.S. Senator.

The Constitution allows all Presidents to make appointments when the Senate is in recess, but the Senate was still in session. There's been no recess and yet President Obama has taken this unprecedented and unconstitutional action.

Join the ACLJ in telling President Obama he must retract these unconstitutional appointments and urging him to follow the U.S. Constitution! Add your name to our petition now.

Petition to Retract Obama’s Unconstitutional Appointments

To: President Obama

The U.S. Constitution provides the foundation for our rule of law and our rights under the law. If any part of it can be ignored by the government, all of it could be ignored by the government. President Obama, put the U.S. Constitution ahead of politics; retract your unconstitutional appointments immediately.

We’ve seen this movie before. With the Obama administration, a familiar pattern is emerging. Trusting his own wisdom, President Obama resists oversight, goes to legal war against leakers and whistleblowers (at least those who make it look bad), and launches or proposes military offensives against...

Brian Williams and the Tyranny of Ego

By David French1423239448378

Like so many others , I find it impossible to believe Brian Williams simply “made a mistake.” At the risk of indulging in armchair pop psychology, I’d say it’s far more likely that a titanic ego collided with reality, and reality lost. In my own experience, there are few things more humbling than...

The Power of Satire

By Matthew Clark1416850646137

You know its bad for President Obama when the late night comedy shows start cutting through his Administration’s mainstream media-memorizing spin and exposing his lawlessness. Conservatives aren’t the only ones shouting from the rooftops about President Obama’s reckless disregard for the...

Chuck Hagel Failed His Impossible Job

By David French1416847845197

I would say that I pity Chuck Hagel. After all, here was his mandate: Maintain America’s strategic position while shrinking American military power and amplifying the Obama administration’s desires for global disengagement. It turns out that the SECDEF could accomplish only two of those missions.
