If you look at the Corruption in the corporations, financial institutions and government, there aren't many checks & balances at work, which is the problem today.

That being said, the checks and balances that are supposed to be at work today are:

The president can appoint supreme court Justices, but the Senate must approve.

The president and veto a law passed by congress.

The president can appoint his/her cabinet, but the senate must approve.

The president controls the military, however congress must declare war. As of the passage of the War Powers Act, the president can only send the military to a place for up to 90 days, unless congress has declared war.

The president can pass Executive Orders.

The president can make treaties with other nations, but the Senate must approve.

The president can grant pardons on prisoners.

Congress can override a president's veto.

The House of Representatives determines if there is enough evidence to hold an impeachment trial, the Senate holds the trial. If the president or vice president is being impeached, the Chief Justice presides over the trial. If a Justice is being impeached, the Vice-President presides over the trial.

All revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives.

Congress cannot impeach its own members, instead it can reprimand or censor it's members. In order to reprimand a 2/3 majority vote must be achieved.

Congress is forbidden to delegate any of its powers to any other entity or branch.

The Supreme court can declare a law unconstitutional.

The supreme court interprets how a law is to be enacted.

What is the balance part in checks and balances can you give examples?

Checks and Balances involves the 3 branches of government and how they monitor one another. Congress establishes a law, sends it to the President - he approves it or vetoes the law and the bill circles back around until it is accepted or dropped. The judicial system overrides and makes sure that laws created abide by the constitution and those in the supreme court are appointed by the president. This is a small part of the ins and outs of checks and balances.
