Supreme Court slaps Obama down again, 23 unanimous decisions against him

With the Brexit passage, little is being said about the latest loss of Obama with the Supremes. After his petulant pouting yesterday, he had to admit his immigration bonanza is on hold. This latest loss doesn’t count all of the cases of Obama over reaching that never makes it to the top court. Stunning the number of unanimous decisions that went against him.That includes his two picks now on the court. Info below is from two Cato posts:

It has the worst record of any modern presidency, whether you count in absolute won-loss..

In the first 6.5 years of Obama’s presidency (January 2009 to June 2015), the government lost unanimously at the Supreme Court 23 times, an average of 3.62 cases per year.

And that record has only grown in the last few months. This week the government suffered its fifth unanimous loss of the year – matching its dubious achievement in 2013 with 25 cases still left to be decided – in a property-rights case in which Cato filed an amicus briefU.S. Army Corps of Engineers v. Hawkes Co.

Earlier this year, I documented the Obama administration’s abysmal results before the Supreme Court (the two Obamacare cases excepted). Not only is its overall winning percentage much worse than any other modern presidency, but its spate of unanimous losses is truly record-breaking.

These cases have nothing in common, other than the government’s view that federal power is virtually unlimited: Citizens must subsume their liberty to whatever the experts in a given field determine the best or most useful policy to be. If the government can’t get even one justice to agree with it on any of these unrelated cases, it should realize there’s something seriously wrong with its constitutional vision.

    It has been a good couple of days, hasn’t it? The left loves to paint the SCOTUS as being a partisan entity and they are wailing over the Congress not hearing Obama’s court pick, but they are ignoring how many times what Obama tried to do was so over the top that even his own SCOTUS picks could not go along with it!

    Wait, Clinton? (on your first commenter)–surely you’re joking, lol…maybe I am reading it wrong. Clinton is not the cure for this country, just saying…and you know that the president will not heed to the courts decision, as he has already stated so, he has no plans to deport anyone and actually stated he told the Border Patrol is stand down—impeachable offense, but since he is a lame duck, nothing will happen on that front.

    Hurray for Brexit. We stayed up late to watch the results on CPAN. The people have spoken and the liberals back here have been left scratching their heads. I have noticed Shillary has not commented.

    Today my friends proves beyond a doubt Hillary is the cure to what ails this country. If any president can ignore a SCOTUS decision its ol’ lard ass. And she will prove that amateur hour Obama is little more than a pimple on the ass of the pant suited one as she finishes what the floppy eared one started but couldn’t finish. One question remains though, how is it the Clinton money laundering extorting slush fund Initiative couldn’t rig the Brexit results?

    Obama is furious. The ire is all over his ugly mug.

    And…Brexit, too, across The Pond.

    Oh, I am smiling this morning!
