Barack Obama: Dictator in Chief?
Obama's 'abuse of power' threatens to shut down Senate
CALLING GIL DAVIS, ATTORNEY AT LAW
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio says "The President's own words in plain English spoken in speech after speech in recent days seem plainly directed at Senators and Congress that they have been disbanded and matter nothing to him.

Key Republican Senators are bracing for legislative battles and Constitutional challenges to President Barack Obama's unprecedented end-run around Congress to install several controversial political appointees.
Obama announced the decision Wednesday to make the so-called recess appointments -- even though the Senate is not in recess -- putting Richard Cordray in charge of a contentious new consumer protection agency and also naming three appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) - Sharon Block, Richard Griffin and Terence F.

Public Advocate asks: Where are the leadership of both houses on this? Where are the Presidential candidates on this topic?
Articles of impeachment drawn up and voted upon by Congress seem the only legal remedy as some commentators say going to court would result in a court decision that "Congress must respond with impeachment" (sic).
Then and only then could or would a court get involved to address the illegality.
But then that's just commentary. Where is the response from real solid legal authorities like the genuine lawyer who was able to simply and elegantly show that no President is above the law.
That man took then-President Bill Clinton to court over a sexual assault of an innocent woman. And the Supreme Court voted 9 to Zero that "no president is above the law" and, indeed, Bill Clinton had to face the court trial and was brought to justice in that case.
The man who headed the team that brought a President to justice is
