Obama has moved swiftly to concentrate power in the White House, bypassing the review of our elected representatives in Congress in most of the posts listed above. Even though cabinet positions are part of the executive branch, the cabinet secretaries must be approved by Congress, they are funded by Congress, and they can be called before Congress to testify. Most of these czars, on the other hand, are appointed by Obama at his sole discretion, and are answerable only to him. If subpoenaed by Congress, they can claim executive privilege.


On July 15, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) introduced H.R.3226, the Czar Accountability and Reform (CZAR) Act of 2009, with 34 co-sponsors. There is some comfort in knowing that there are still a few folk in the House of Representatives who are fighting for constitutional government.

This new list is alphabetized by the czar positions, to facilitate comparison with the excellent research on the duties of each office done by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton at Noisy Room. Below the fold is the earlier list sorted by the last names of the appointees.



Work I have done to “Out” the Czars, their backgrounds and their connections:


I am currently trying to complete the original list of 34 CZARS… have 10 MORE to do!

  1. Income redistribution? Naaagh…I’m holding out for a Homeland Security Post that deals with the far right. If I can’t get that, how about cybernated solar energy grid czar?

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    It seems whenever the pot is stirred the Marxist/Maoists can’t help themselves……

    For those that don’t know Carl Davidson:

    Marxist anti-war activist
    Former member of Students for a Democratic Society
    Political supporter of Barack Obama

    Carl Davidson is an American Marxist who serves as a national steering committee member of United for Peace and Justice, a field organizer for the Solidarity Economy Network, and co-chair of Chicagoans Against War & Injustice. The latter organization has formed alliances with such groups as the League of Women Voters, Rainbow/PUSH, Citizen Action, People for the American Way, the Progressive Caucus, the Congressional Black Caucus, and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Aiming ultimately to transform the United States into a socialist nation, Davidson advocates the mobilization of “new grassroots majorities required for progressive, systemic change.”

    In 1992 Davidson became a leader of the newly formed Committees of Correspondence, a Marxist coalition of former Maoists, Trotskyists, and Communist Party USA members. The organization has since changed its name to the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, where Davidson remains a prominent figure.

    In the mid-1990s Davidson was a major player in the Chicago branch of the New Party, a Marxist political coalition whose objective was to endorse and elect leftist public officials. Most New Party members hailed from the Committees of Correspondence (the Marxist coalition cited in the preceding paragraph), the Democratic Socialists of America, and the militant leftist organization ACORN. Davidson first met Barack Obama through the New Party, which endorsed the latter in his run for the Illinois state senate in 1996. Obama had actively sought this endorsement, and he used a number of New Party volunteers as campaign workers.

    Davidson quickly became one of Obama’s most ardent political supporters. He helped organize a large 2002 rally where Obama first established himself as an eloquent anti-war spokesman.

    Carl Davidson is a SEN Coordinating Committee member, and webmaster for and ‘Progressives for Obama’. He is also a National Committee member of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism,

  2. I wonder when Obama is going to stop wasting taxpayer money. It’s my opinion, that Obama is sitting up a socialist government as we speak. The czars are a front to surround himself with radicals that will take away all our rights with a puff of air. The czars have bankrupt this nation. They are spending the Americans dry.What can the taxpayer do to stop Obama? Donna Campbell

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    1. Watch Glenn Beck at 5pm (EST) on Fox. He has been revealing the truth about Obama and steps to take to defend America.

    2. Familiarize yourself with the 912 project.

    3. Print out copies of this: Take it to EACH of your Representatives in Congress in townhalls and ask them to take this PLEDGE. Then watch their ACTIONS, not just words. IF they do, with ACTIONS and follow the pledge they are IN, if they don’t THEY ARE OUT in 2010.


    Local gatherings:

    Whatever you decide to do…..STAND UP, SPEAK WITH BOLDNESS

  3. I was wondering if you have info on how much each of these “czars” are making? and what fund is it coming out of?? hard earned tax payers money going to a lost cause! what is wrong with our government!!!
    God Help Us!!!

    Response by Romanticpoet:

    Go here for info on Czars and salaries that we KNOW OF:

    The Salaries vary. Looks like between $98,000 and $172,000/year.
    Then you have to figure in their “staff” (Secretaries, researchers, legal team, etc.)
    Then add the “Perks” of the job: car, flights, blackberries, etc.

    I believe the ONLY jobs Obama has created (150,000) so far are ONLY federal jobs. The Czars, their staff, Now we have a $3.4 BILLION dollar bill for building a new Homeland Security department on 176 acres of land within 5 miles of the Capitol. Those jobs will go to UNION only. Presidential executive order in February states that ANY Federal Jobs done with Federal Stimulus money can only be done by UNIONS.

  4. Very nice work!
