Recess Appointments, Reversal of CUD
« on: February 16, 2016, 09:25:01 AM »

http://www.scotusblog.com/2016/02/is-a-recess-appointment-to-the-court-an-option/


"The presidential authority at issue in this possible scenario exists, according to Article II, when the Senate has gone into recess and the vacancy a president seeks to fill remains.  Such an appointment requires no action at all by the Senate, but the appointee can only serve until the end of the following Senate session."

But ...

"Could President Obama make a nominee during that recess?  Only if the Senate is taking a recess lasting longer than three days, and does not come in from time to time during that recess to take some minimal legislative action.  Both of those circumstances would be entirely within the Senate’s authority.

In that circumstance, a recess appointment to the Court would not be within the terms of the Constitution, as spelled out in Article II."

Meaning by having just 1 or a few Senators (not needing to run for re-election) come in for some fol-de-rol every 3rd day during the August recess the Republicans could block an appointment by the President.

NOTE: They did this in 2014with success- see the next link. But could a Left leaning court change the rules used to thwart such appointments before they were ruled against?

I am thinking of such an appointment on the last day of this coming August recess. Appointee would serve until the end of Senate session that begins in late August or early September. That could cover September 16 which I now see as a possible date for the repeal of CUD (Citizen's United Decision). The eclipse falls on CUD's natal and/or progressed Uranus and on it's Asc-Desc axis with transit Mars-Pluto midpoint on the decision's Plutos

The Sibly chart I use (Jul 4 1776 NS (Jun 23 1776 OS), 5:10 pm, LMT +5:00:39, Philadelphia PA 39°N57'08'' 075°W09'51'') has an MC at 180°58'. Eclipse Jupiter will be at 181°52.

If I had edited the original post this might not have been noticed. Along with the other points aspected by the eclipse on Sep 16 (eclipse on CUD's natal and/or progressed Uranus and across it's Asc-Desc axis with transit Mars-Pluto midpoint on the decision's Plutos) the eclipse Saturn-Pluto midpoint is on CUD's MC. Should this prove to be the day the decision is revoked by SCOTUS it would mean that a justice had been appointed prior to the 16th.

"On Feb 1 in 1790, the Supreme Court was scheduled to meet for the first time in the Royal Exchange Building on New York’s Broad Street. Because three of the newly appointed justices couldn’t make it, the meeting was delayed until Feb. 2."

"From the Record: U.S. Supreme Court first convened by ceremony, at 1:00 p.m. LAT, ( which makes it 13:14:14 hrs LMT) lower Broad Street, New York City. [Source: New York Law Review, March 1940.]"

 Charts located to the Supreme Court Building. SCOTUS MC 328°36'. Eclipse Mars sets at 329°33'.

It is unlikely that Citizen's United will be reversed on 9/16/16, or at any time before the November election, indeed, at any time in the foreseeable future.  The Supreme Court's 2015 term ends this June; they do not reconvene until early October.  And as far as I can tell there is no motion for reconsideration on its calendar for the 2016 term. It will almost certainly take a new appeal to a new lawsuit to give the Court the opportunity to revisit the question.  And it is an open question whether there will be a new justice on the bench by then, and as to his/her social and judicial philosophy.
The law, in its infinite wisdom, forbids the rich as well as the poor, to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.
