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.

U.S. Soldiers in “War” with ISIS Not Eligible for Medals?

By Matthew Clark1412604353722

With 1,600 military “advisers” on the ground in Iraq, 2,300 of our troops being deployed to the Middle East as a “special purpose marine air ground task force,” and ongoing airstrikes being conducted in Iraq and Syria against ISIS’s jihadist army, it is absolutely stunning that our military...

What They Don’t Understand

By David French1412354987676

Let me begin with a confession. I watch (and laugh at) way too much liberal political humor. I can’t help it. I think Jon Stewart is funny, and as funny as he is, I think John Oliver is funnier. His HBO special specializes in the “long-form” takedown, with 15-minute segments devoted to a single...
