"Who is vetting these guys?" is the question many are asking in reference to all the President's czars. It's a sort of déjà vu. The same question was asked back when Obama was selecting his cabinet and other appointees. Far from establishing the post-partisan, post-racial, post-divisive administration that Obama promised he has surrounded himself with tax cheats, commies, racists, miscreants and bizarre leftists. To be fair, maybe I'm generalizing a bit too much with plural nouns: The only known tax cheat appointed is Timothy Geithner, Secretary of the Treasury.
What's a little irony from a man who was never vetted himself?
It has come to light that Mr. Obama's "safe school czar," Kevin Jennings once counseled a 15-year-old student who revealed that he was having sex with an adult male. What did Jennings tell the boy? "I hope you knew to use a condom." Before Jennings resigns in shame (or gay pride) maybe Obama should change his title to "safe sex school czar."
What's a little more irony from a guy who was never vetted?
Recently, Kevin Jennings has become a little more exposed. Via a simple Internet search, it turns out that Jennings was the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). The organization uses the public school as a forum to indoctrinate students in sexual identity and practice. Behind the language of "diversity" and "safety," lies its bare desire to sexualize children early, teaching that homosexual, bisexual and transgender practices are A-OK. Mission America reported the following about the future Safe School Czar back in 2002:
Kevin Jennings wrote the foreword for a book for educators called Queering Elementary Education (William J. Letts IV and James T. Sears, eds., Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 1999.) One chapter is written by a woman who says she and her male partner have raised their daughter "queerly." She then goes on to describe Stephanie's attendance at several "gay" pride parades by the time she is eight. Stephanie already has a detailed familiarity with her own female genitalia "because it gives her pleasure when she masturbates." And the mother describes one incident where she and her daughter, while observing a group of twelve-year-olds, decide they are both attracted to the same girl. (pp. 71-81)
The queering of elementary education -- surely, that's the kind of hope and change most Obama supporters voted for.
Let's switch from the disgusting to the just plain weird. Obama's head of Regulatory Affairs (animal rights czar?), Cass Sunstein, wrote a piece titled, "The Rights of Animals: A Very Short Primer." In his writings, Sunstein suggests that hunting should be banned and animals should be allowed to have legal counsel to bring lawsuits on their behalf. Well, comparatively speaking, maybe Sunstein isn't so weird after all. Obama's energy czar, Steven Chu, wants to paint the world's roofs and streets white to fight global warming. You see, the sun's rays reflect off white streets easier than black. Get it? Then there's Mark Lloyd, Obama's FCC diversity czar, who believes Hugo Chavez is a swell guy. His idea of media control, I mean diversity means that:
We have really, truly good white people in important positions. And the fact of the matter is that there are a limited number of those positions. And unless we are conscious of the need to have more people of color, gays, other people in those positions we will not change the problem.
We're in a position where you have to say who is going to step down so someone else can have power.
Welcome to Obama's America where spreading the wealth around is only half the fun. Spreading white people around is where it's really at.
Obama's science czar, John Holdren, illustrates the liberal folly of expanding government power in hopes of solving problems the government created in the first place. Liberal welfare and tax policy have destroyed the inner (and outer) city family unit. Not to worry though. Just enact forced abortions in cases of unwanted pregnancies. Or how about forced adoptions for out-of-wedlock births? And, if that doesn't work, forced sterilization certainly will nip the problem in the bud. The Washington Examiner reports on Holdren's book from the late 1970s:
The Holdren book, titled Ecoscience and co-authored with Malthus enthusiasts Paul and Anne Ehrlich, weighs in at more than 1,000 pages. Of greatest importance to its discussion of how to limit the human population is its disregard for any ethical considerations.
Holdren "approved of and recommended compulsory sterilization and even abortion in some cases, as part of a government population control regime." Of course, that was a long time ago. So, like Bill Ayers, John Holdren is an ex-radical, according to the Obama media. Obama's guys are ex-radicals regardless of whether they have renounced their radical worldviews or not.
With the resignation of "green czar" Van Jones, after a Google search revealed his communist, racist and conspiracy theorist tendencies, we only have 30-plus czars to go.
We know Obama has too many czars when no one knows the exact number at any given time. I predict that once all the unconstitutional czars are removed, regular Americans will immediately feel better about themselves and the country. Ah, for the days when Obama didn't control business, culture, education, media, health care and economics through a crew of unelected radicals.
A lot of suspension of disbelief occurred during the 2008 presidential campaign. The game of certainly Obama doesn't share the far-left ideology of his associates has passed. Now it's time to play the certainly Obama doesn't share the far-left ideology of those he appoints to carry out his agenda game.
Or might it be possible that Obama appointees are vetted and Obama knows exactly what he is doing? -- appointing likeminded leftists to assist in the overthrowing of America. Or is the smartest man in the world simply clueless?
With the unconstitutional appointment of over thirty czars (and counting) by the guy who promised to fundamentally transform America, brace yourself for more front-page news the New York Times will continue to ignore.
