A close look at Obama and the Czars
Placeholder Image
The people President Obama has chosen to be in his inner circle should cause concern for all Americans.  He has chosen “czars” to be his personal advisors on various issues.  These are people who are whispering in his ear and influencing his decisions.  

These “czars”, who do not need to have confirmation hearings carry radical and extremist views that should disqualify them from any service in government, especially as a top advisor to the president.  However, this is the Obama administration – one headed by a former “community organizer” for ACORN, the fraudulent, law-breaking street thugs determined to undermine the rule of law and the will of the people.

Let us see the views of those people influencing President Obama:

AFGHANISTAN CZAR: Richard Holbrooke is an ultra liberal who is anti gun and pro abortion.  He is also for the legalization of drugs.

AIDS CZAR: Jeffery Crowley is a homosexual and gay rights activist.  He believes in Gay Marriages and Special Status for homosexuals including free health care for gays.

AUTO RECOVERY CZAR: Ed Montgomery is a black radical and anti business activist.  He advocates Affirmative Action.  As an instructor, he taught that U.S. businesses have caused world poverty.  He is a board member for ACORN, the organization involved in voter fraud.  He is also a member for the Communist DuBois Club.

BORDER CZAR: Alan Bersin is a former failed superintendent of San Diego.  He served as the Border Czar under Janet Reno to keep the borders open to illegals.

CALIFORNIA WATER CZAR:  David Hayes Sr. Member of radical environmental organizations and has no experience in water management.

CAR CZAR: Ron Bloom is an Auto Union worker with anti-business views. Has worked to force US auto workers out of business and currently sits on the Board of Chrysler which is now Auto Union owned.

DRUG CZAR: Gil Kerlikowske is a devoted lobbiest for every restrictive gun law proposal.  He believes no America should own a gun and supports the legalization of drugs.

ECONOMIC CZAR: Paul Volcker headed the Federal Reserve under President Carter when the US economy nearly failed.  Member of the anti-business “Progressive Policy” organization.

GREAT LAKES CZAR: Cameron Davis is a Chicago radical and an anti-business environmentalist.  Blames George Bush for  “Poisoning the water that minorities have to drink”. He has no experience or training in water management.  Also a former ACORN board member.

GREEN CZAR: Van Jones recently resigned; but President Obama still chose this member of the American Communist Party and the San Francisco Communist Party.  This Black Activist has also expressed anti-white and other racial and radical views.

GUANTANAMO CLOSURE CZAR: Daniel Fried is a Rights Activist for Foreign Terrorist and believes America has caused the War on Terrorism.

REGULATORY CZAR: Cass Sunstein is a liberal activist judge who believes free speech needs to be limited for the “common good”.   He has ruled against personal freedoms many times including private gun ownership.

SCIENCE CZAR: John Holdren is most disturbing of all the Czars.  He has advocated the formation of a “planetary regime” that would use a “global police force” to enforce totalitarian measures of population control, including forced abortions, mass sterilization programs conducted via the food and water supply. According to Front Page Magazine and other sources, Holdren considers overpopulation as mankind’s greatest threat and he and his co-authors have advocated some of the following proposals in his book, called Ecoscience.

1. Implementing a system of “involuntary birth control,” where both men and women would be mandated to have an infertility device implanted into their body at puberty and only have it removed temporarily if they received permission from the government to have a baby.

2. Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”.

3. Formally passing a law that criminalizes having more than two children, similar to the one child policy in Communist China.

TARP CZAR: Herb Allison was a Fannie Mae CEO who used real estate mortgages to back up the stock market which led to the U.S. recession.

TERRORISM CZAR: John Brennan is an anti CIA activist that suggested the disbanding of the U.S. military and open dialog with terrorist.

URBAN AFFAIRS CZAR: Adolfo Carrion Jr is a millionaire “slum lord” of the Bronx, N.Y., who advocates higher taxes to pay for minority housing and health care.

These are the people President Obama has chosen to be in his inner circle as his advisers.  These people are not only disturbing; but frightful. None of them had a confirmation hearing while each one receives a salary of $158,500 to $172,200 of our tax dollars.  President Obama comes across as a moderate when he speaks; but he has demonstrated he chooses radicals as his friends and advisers.  

Is this the change America really wanted?  Can we trust the people who advise President Obama?  Can we trust the government with more control on our lives? Can we really trust President Obama?  These are the serious questions America must answer.  No wonder our founding fathers believed in “limited government” since big government has always brought on corruption.
