WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court's unanimous judgment that President Obama overstepped his constitutional authority in bypassing the U.S. Senate in making a series of "recess appointments" to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Judicial Watch had jointly filed with the Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) an amici curiae brief in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning (No. 12-1281).
"We applaud the Supreme Court's unanimous judgment that serves to remind this president that he is not king. President Obama, in his lawlessness, has been acting as the 'catch me if you can president.' The Supreme Court, to its credit, finally caught and restrained Barack Obama's lawlessness. Unfortunately, these recess appointments are one of many examples of this president acting outside of his constitutional authority."
According to the Judicial Watch/AEF amici brief:
"The President's alleged Recess appointments to the NLRB are unconstitutional for the primary reason that the Senate was in session at the time of the purported appointments... The President's declaration that these sessions were invalid disregards the Senate's authority to determine and administer its own procedures, including when it will recess and how it will conduct its business."

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
