Considering the Marxists, Islamists, Progressives, leftists and Communists that Obama has appointed during his first term of usurping the Presidency, would it not seem prudent for the House of Representatives, in control of the Republicans, to work harder at preventing more of that?
If you answered yes, you would be wrong. In fact, the Republican House has once again shown why the Tea Party is the only entity in this country that cares about the Constitution.
Obama gets dangerous appointment tool
The “Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act“, passed by the Senate and the House is not only unconstitutional, but in the hands of Obama, it’s very dangerous.
The last we looked, it took an amendment to change the US Constitution. But alas, not so, according to just about every Democrat and 95 Republicans. For 200 years the President of the United States needed consent from the Senate for key government appointees. Thanks to Republicans, not anymore.
Aside: New Jersey GOP members split
Before we go further TPATH wants to thank both Scott Garret and Leonard Lance for going against the Speaker and voting for America. Both of these NJ Representatives voted no.
It might be noted that it is becoming more and more clear why Runyon was rejected by Tea Party groups in South Jersey and it has also become abundantly clear why Chris Smith has also had the same effect on Central Jersey organizations. Both of these men voted with the Democrats to allow Obama to appoint anyone he wants, to many very key government positions without the approval of the Senate as required by the Constitution.

Two questions on this:
- Why would the Congress give away more of their shared power without even a little battle, to a Marxist who has proven just what he will do with that new power?
- Do the Republicans who voted for this think Obama has not sufficiently destroyed our economy before they gave him free rein to appoint even more radicals?
Dozens of key management positions in the Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Commerce, and Homeland Security (including the treasurer of the United States, the deputy administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, the director of the Office for Domestic Preparedness, and the assistant administrator of FEMA) will now be filled by presidential edict, without the need of the “advice and consent” of the Senate.
The Framers of the Constitution did not give the President the kingly power to appoint the senior officers of the government by himself. Instead, they allowed the President to name an individual for a senior office, but then required the President to obtain the Senate’s consent before appointing the individual to office. Thus, they required the cooperation of the President and the Senate to put someone in high office.
The bottom line here is, people, we are in trouble. We have a man who is not a Natural Born Citizen, unconstitutionally sitting in the position of President of the United States, a tax bill, Obama Care produced in the Senate, unconstitutionally, and now that unconstitutional President has just been given unconstitutional power.
Our freedoms and rights are not just being slowly chipped away, they are being assaulted with 4-foot chain saws. This time, our own side has provided the saws.
