Lucky 13! Obama-Holder “extreme” views rebuked by Supreme Court again

scotusThe US Supreme Court ruled unanimously today making recess appointments when the Congress is not in recess is, uh, unconstitutional. But that’s only the latest ruling slapping down the Obama Administration’s attempt to expand its powers.

As John Fund reports over at National Review,

Did you know the Obama administration’s position has been defeated in at least 13 – thirteen — cases before the Supreme Court since January 2012 that were unanimous decisions? It continued its abysmal record before the Supreme Court today with the announcement of two unanimous opinions against arguments the administration had supported. First, the Court rejected the administration’s power grab on recess appointments by making clear it could not decide when the Senate was in recess. Then it unanimously tossed out a law establishing abortion-clinic “buffer zones” against pro-life protests that the Obama administration argued on behalf of before the Court (though the case was led by Massachusetts attorney general Martha Coakley).

And Fund is especially galled at the attempt by the Obama Administration to steal away even more civil liberties–all of which have been slapped down by SCOTUS. These decisions include the ruling preventing police from looking at your cell phone without a warrant, stopping the Obama-Holder justice department from putting GPS units on cars at will without a warrant and telling protesters they can be put in a special free speech zones near abortion clinics. 

Obama releases photos of him watching…no, not Benghazi, the World Cup

The White House staff made sure media outlets got a gander of El Presidente watching the US lose to Germany (but still advance to the group of 16).

Note the changing personnel seated next to Mr. Obama. Valerie Jarrett is out and someone new comes in. Here:

And here:

Note the photos were aboard Air Force One and shared by the mainstreams who should be wondering where the photos are of the president during the Benghazi debacle.

Meantime, hawkers of tourist trinkets at the World Cup put Obama’s mug on the English national team cup.


No, the president, whose antipathy toward the British includes removing the bust of Winston Churchill from the oval office, does not play for Manchester United.
