Obama’s Czars: 21 And Counting. Partial List HERE and Connections

 

from: http://www.theobamafile.com/ObamaLatest.htm

 
21 And Counting

Obama has appointed 21 “Czars.”

These Czars are “Political Officers.”  In the old Soviet Union, they were called Commissars.

The Executive Branch of government is organized hierarchically, top-down, by Departments (Treasury, Defense, etc.).  Each department functions under the direction of an executive, referred to as a “Secretary,” who is confirmed by the Senate.

The appointments of these “Czars” changes the fundamental structure of the Executive Branch into a “matrix” structure.  The czars have political power across all of the departments within the Executive Branch.

They speak for Obama and their function is to ensure compliance with Obama’s policies within the Executive Branch.

The American People don’t know who most of these Czars are.  They’ve had no background checks.  There is no Congressional oversight over the Czars, unlike a Cabinet position.  They are appointed by Obama and are extraordinarily powerful, simply because they take their direction from and report directly to Obama.

We don’t know how much money they make.  We don’t know how many tax-payer dollars they oversee.  We don’t know how much power they wield.

Where are the checks and balances?

Obama’s Czars!

By DJohn

 

What do all of the following people (see list below)  have in common? They are “czar’s” in the Obama Administration.What is a “czar” exactly? Wikipedia defines it this way:Originally, the title Czar (derived from Caesar) meant Emperor in the European medieval sense of the term, that is, a ruler who claims the same rank as a Roman emperor, with the approval of another emperor or a supreme ecclesiastical official (the Pope or the Ecumenical Patriarch).Occasionally, the word could be used to designate other, non-Christian, supreme rulers. In Russia and Bulgaria the imperial connotations of the term were blurred with time and, by the 19th century, it had come to be viewed as an equivalent of King.[2][3]Now to be fair, Obama did not invent the position of czar in Washington. Many Presidents have had them. However, he appears to be on the verge of appointing yet ANOTHER czar to his already large family of czar’s and in doing so will own the title of President with the Most Czar’s. As stated in the Wall Street Journal yesterday: The Obama administration plans to appoint a “Special Master for Compensation” to ensure that companies receiving federal bailout funds are abiding by executive-pay guidelines, according to people familiar with the matter.The administration is expected to name Kenneth Feinberg, who oversaw the federal government’s compensation fund for victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, to act as a pay czar for the Treasury Department, these people said.Make no mistake, he knows exactly what he is doing. This is a first-rate power grab by a power-hungry President. You see the great thing about czar’s is that they operate with impunity and they are “under the radar” when it comes to making policy. They are accountable to nobody, except the administration.So in effect we have NON-ELECTED officials, who are backed by The White House, who are given the tools and resources to do the bidding of the President and they are accountable to NO ONE! These czar’s don’t have to undergo Senate Confirmation Hearings, they just get appointed.So as long as we are going to be serving all of these “kings” we should at least know who they are. In case we need to bow to them at some point. The following is a (partial) list of Obama’s Czar’s/Kings:

Non-proliferation czar: Gary Samore

It’s official, but still unannounced: The White House has tapped Gary Samore, a veteran arms control negotiator in the Clinton Administration, as its new “czar” for preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism.

Samore, a vice president at the Council on Foreign Relations, a New York-based non-partisan foreign policy think tank, formerly served as the National Security Council’s senior director under President Clinton from 1996 to 2000 and has had years of experience negotiating non-proliferation treaties and agreements with difficult countries like North Korea.

Terrorism (I thought they didn’t use that word) czar:

 John Brennan

http://www.muckety.com/0E16974E5826B5C6CDF90B9F41A8E01E.map

John Brennan chief executive officer of the Analysis Corp. [was] rumored to be a possible candidate for CIA director in the Obama administration reports The Washington Post.

Brennan is a former top CIA official who helped establish the National Counterterrorism Center in 2004. He left the agency in 2005 to become CEO of Analysis Corp. …

Ironically in March an Analysis Corp. employee working at the State Department was accused of improperly accessing Barack Obama’s passport file. In a statement at the time Analysis Corp. said “We deeply regret that the incident occurred and believe it is an isolated incident.” …

He served as an advisor to the Obama campaign on national security and is the head of Obama’s intelligence transition team. …

Regulatory czar: Cass Sunstein

Cass Sunstein

- is a Harvard Law School professor Cass Sunstein, who argues that citizens’ rights exist only to the extent that they are granted by the government. Sunstein also, holds to a radical view of the constitution being a “living breathing document” that must be interpreted with modern context in mind, as opposed to a strict constructionist view of the constitution. In this view, Sunstein agrees with Justice Breyer’s belief that the original framers intended the Justices to have the freedom to participate in government itself, by creating legislation from the bench. Sunstein was a colleague of Obama at the Univeristy of Chicago Law School, and currently serves as an adviser to Obama. Obama’s personal views on the Supreme Court justices align very closely with those of Breyer, and Sunstein.

To appoint the current head of LEAP to the position of US Drugs Czar is an appaling reflection on President Obama’s commitment to eliminate America’s drug epidemic. LEAP is committed to drug legalisation in it’s entirety. Perhaps someone would advise the White House that the government has signed the UN Conventions on Narcotics.It seems George Soros billions have been well invested in America’s new President. God help America.

Croatia takes leading role in discussions on advancing progress in SEE at summit

The government of Croatia and the Croatian Prime Minister, Ivo Sanadar hosted the second Croatia Summit 2007: Europe’s New South in Dubrovnik July 6-7. As a NATO candidate country, Croatia has “an important role in South-Eastern Europe…with added responsibilities,” said Prime Minister Sanadar during his welcome address. The main goal of the conference was to pinpoint the most effective ways to make the most of the Euroatlantic integration process, as the process itself can spur much-needed reforms in the countries of the region. The highly-visible event also helped to raise public awareness to increase support for NATO throughout the region. Participants consisted of presidents, prime ministers, and foreign ministers from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia including Kosovo, Slovakia, as well as Daniel Fried, U.S. State Department assistant secretary of state; Zbigniew Brzezinski of the Center for Strategic and International Studies; and Peter Semneby, EU special envoy for the Caucuses, among others. BTD Executive Director, Ivan Vejvoda, attended the summit, along with the Executive Director of GMF’s Transatlantic Center in Brussels, Ronald D. Asmus.

So there you have it. (Some of)Obama’s Kings. Does anyone know ANYTHING about these people? Guess what? That’s the point. You don’t know them so they are anonymous. It’s easier to “get things done” when you are anonymous.Anonymous, unaccountable, invisible.

  1. Enough of the czars already !! My grandfather left Germany/Poland these many years ago because of just that; Czar Nickolas !! We must make them accountable, and be vetted by congress; the sooner the better !!!!!!!

  2. Please update czar list to present. Is there a transportation czar?

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    Ray LaHood is Secretary of Transportation

  3. Thank you for your website. The TRUE Americans are just starting to wake up. We need a strategic plan, NOW, to battle this “virus” that has invaded our government. We cannot allow these radicals to take over our beloved country. My father, (USAF retired) and all three of my brothers served in our military to protect all of us from “czars” like these.

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    The BEST thing to do is spread the word FAR and WIDE. Call family members, email information to them. Tell your extended network. THEN have them send the information to others and so on and so on. The Marxists/Maoist are HOPING we remain stoic and just let them “Change” America to their system.

    The other MSM’s are so in the tank for Obama. NBC is within the White House with Jeffrey Immelt (GE, NBC, MSNBC and sits on the Federal Reserve). ABC has George Stephanopolous (one of the 6AM “shill of the day” good ‘ol boy networks of Emanuel, James Carville, Paul Begala, et.al) with Ian Cameron, an ABC producer MARRIED to Susan Rice, the US Ambassador to the United Nations. MSNBC is tied to Zbig Brezinzski, Obama foreign policy advisor who is the FATHER of Mika Brezinzski. CNN…..I won’t even go there.

    WATCH Glenn Beck at 5pm EST weekdays on Fox News network. He has been telling the truth, and giving you ideas of what to do. If you can’t watch then, TIVO it, DVR it, tape it etc. to watch at a later time. If you don’t have those capabilities, have a friend of family do it for you. He now has the HIGHEST ratings on network. Had 3 MILLION viewers last Friday.

  4. CZARS HAVE BEEN AROUND IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE ROOSEVELT!!!!! George Bush had 31…clinton, Ford, Carter, Rooselvet…..every single one had CZARS!!! You are an idiot. Those who belive this propaganda need to go back and get at least a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA!!! Lies…and FEAR. Hannity will do a special tonight about the CZARS….I bet he leaves the fact that they have been appointed by the presidents since the late 1930’s!!!!! You should be ashamed. What a moron.

    Response by Romantipoet:

    Yes, they did have Czars. Most in an “advisory” position.

    However, HOW MANY Czars of Bush, Clinton, Ford, et.al were Socialists,Marxists,Radical activists like the Czars Obama has?

    Carol Browner: International Socialist and on Sustainable World Society branch of this group.

    Van Jones: Radical activist, marxist (admitted Communist).

    Ron Bloom: Tied to the Democratic Socialists of America.

    Cass Sunstein: Obama should rule law; not judges. **Married to Samantha Power, an anti-semite (Hates Israel; pro-Palestine)

    Mark Lloyd: Activist, racist….believes government should control communications

    John Holdren: Besides believing in the “sky is falling” part of global warming; believes children aren’t “human” until they reach the age of “two-ish”

    Besides the Czars, Obama has surrounded himself/has ties to Socialists/radicals:

    Heather Booth
    Marilyn Katz
    William Ayers
    Bernadine Dohrn
    Jeff Jones
    David Axelrod
    Progressives for Obama; Tom Hayden (SDS) married to “Hanoi Jane Fonda”, Bill Fletcher,Jr., Danny Glover, Carl Davidson, etc.
    Howard Dean: Ties to the European Socialist Party
    Deepak Chupra
    Gamaliel Foundation
    Frances Fox Piven
    Greg Galluzzo
    etc……etc.

    Has ties to Republic Enemy #1 and “bag man”……..George Soros.

    And so on……and so on……

    I believe you should educate yourself on the FACTS before you resort to name calling…

  5. [...] the media tell us this, do a simple google search for “obama czars” or go here http://romanticpoet.wordpress.com/2009/06/15/obamas-czars-21-and-counting-partial-list-here-and-conn… for one of the many results you will see, none of them good for America and our way of life, [...]
