Over a year ago, Barack Obama declared the United States Senate to be in recess then, without advice and consent, abruptly ‘recess’ appointed three members to fill vacancies at his union-dominated National Labor Relations Board.
Over a year later, after one of the three “recess” appointments resigned, on January 25th, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruled that Barack Obama’s imperial decisions were, in fact, unconstitutional.
Since the Circuit Court’s ruling three weeks ago, Obama’s NLRB chairman, union attorney Mark Pearce, declared that the unconstitutionally-appointed labor board would forge ahead, undeterred by its illegitimacy.

In a provocative move, President Obama Wednesday re-nominated two controversial Democratic candidates to the National Labor Relations Board just weeks after a federal court invalided their recess appointments to the posts.
Mr. Obama again nominated Sharon Block, a former Democratic Labor Department official, and Richard Griffin, a Democratic union lawyer, to serve on the NLRB.
