— Imperius Rex et Populusque Americanus
While all of America is distracted and focused on the death of Osama bin Laden, our President and his minions have been fast at work laying the groundwork for S. 679: Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 to speed through the Senate and then make its way into the House and then to the President to sign.
Yes, the other hand is quickly forming into a dictatorial fist that is about to smash our Constitution.
As you will recall, the beginning of the end of liberty in Rome commenced with Augustus Caesar who compromised the authority of the Senate through the force of arms and basically the Senate became a facade.
America is poised with this proposed bill, to morph immediately from a Republic into an Oligarchy with the privileged eunuchs of the Senate as window dressing and a dictator – the first American Caesar – at the country’s presidential helm.
‘President’ obama will have the power to appoint WITHOUT SENATE REVIEW OR APPROVAL whomever he wants from the private sector for powerful positions throughout the Federal Government.

The Heritage Foundation says this about this bill:
Speed Up Nominations and Confirmations, but DEFEAT S. 679
Published on April 1, 2011 by David Addington
On March 30, 2011, Senator Charles Schumer (D–NY) with 15 cosponsors, including the Senate Majority and Republican Leaders, as well as six other Democratic Senators, six other Republican Senators, and an Independent Senator, introduced in the Senate the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011 (S. 679).
The bill reduces the number of presidential appointments that require the consent of the Senate and establishes within the executive branch a Working Group on Streamlining Paperwork for Executive Nominations.
Individuals nominated to senior executive offices suffer slow and detailed background investigations and mounds of duplicative paperwork before a President sends their nominations to the Senate. After nomination, many nominees suffer time-consuming inaction or time-consuming and excruciating action as the Senate proceeds (or does not) with consideration of the nomination.
The sponsors of S. 679 have identified a valid problem; vetting and filling Federal judgeships is woefully behind but is partly because the Senate held up hearings and made the application process difficult as a way to discourage good people from applying.
But proposing the wrong solution and pretending to improve the process they broke to begin with will really compromise the Senate. Congress should not enact S. 679.
In essence they want to give the President the sole power to appoint people to positions of his choosing within our government. Obama would be free to do this without the approval of the Senate. Senate approval of such positions is mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article II, Section 2 under the “Appointments Clause”:
… shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
