Obama Suffers 12th Unanimous Defeat at Supreme Court
 
By Joel Gehrke

President Obama’s team suffered their twelfth unanimous defeat at the Supreme Court in the legal challenge to the so-called recess appointments made when Congress was not actually in recess, a string of defeats that only represents “the tip of the iceberg,” according to Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah).

“Not every case in which the president has exceeded his authority has made it all the way to the Supreme Court,” Lee, a former law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, told National Review Online. “The fact that his track record is as bad as it is in the Supreme Court . . . is yet another indication of the fact that we’ve got a president who is playing fast and loose with the Constitution.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas), in arguing that Obama is “lawless,” has kept a tally of the president’s unanimous defeats.  ”This marks the twelfth time since January 2012 that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the Obama administration’s calls for greater federal executive power,” he pointed out after the release of the recess-appointments ruling.

Cruz issued a report on Obama’s unanimous defeats when the total sat at nine. “If the Department of Justice had won these cases, the federal government would be able to electronically track all of our movements, fine us without a fair hearing, dictate who churches choose as ministers, displace state laws based on the president’s whims, bring debilitating lawsuits against individuals based on events that occurred years ago, and destroy a person’s private property without just compensation,” Cruz wrote in April 2013.

“When President Obama’s own Supreme Court nominees join their colleagues in unanimously rejecting the administration’s call for broader federal power nine times in 18 months, the inescapable conclusion is that the Obama administration’s view of federal power knows virtually no bounds,” he concluded.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

You need to go all the way back to Franklin D. Roosevelt to find a President with this many trips to the woodshed from SCOTUS.  Every President wins some and loses some, but most have the good sense to choose their battles and not mount a forlorn hope all the way to SCOTUS when the outcome is perfectly clear.

This also reflects poorly on the legal team Obama has put in charge of pursuing these challenges.

But what remains to be seen is what happens next in the NLRB case.  Who is going to enforce this decision, and how long will it take to get these illegal and unconstitutional appointments reversed??

Stay tuned....

That's relatively easy:  the case only directly applies to the parties involved, which means that Noel Canning cannot be forced to enter into the collective bargaining agreement the NLRB was trying to force it to sign.  Beyond that the case's holding and ratio decidendi will be applied, first and foremost, to other ongoing cases involving orders made by the NLRB while these invalid appointees were on it, most likely resulting in a victory for the businesses involved.  Finally, any other company that got slapped by the NLRB with the invalid appointees on it has grounds now to get that slap reversed if it chooses to sue.  Any other actions the NLRB took while they were on it will almost certainly not be disturbed.
