The following are Obama's
a new and influential cadre of counselors just steps from the Oval
Office whose power to direct domestic policy will rival, if not exceed,
the authority of his Cabinet.

Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.) became concerned enough
to send a cautionary letter to Obama last week. At times, he said, past
White House staffers have assumed duties that should be the
responsibility of officials cleared through the Senate confirmation
process. He cited President Bush's naming of homeland security czar Tom
Ridge as an example.
"They rarely testify before congressional
committees and often shield the information and decision-making process
behind the assertion of executive privilege," Byrd wrote of past czars
and White House staffers in similar positions. At times, he said, one
outcome has been to "inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce
"The rapid and easy accumulation of power by
White House staff can threaten the constitutional system of checks and
balances," Byrd said.
These Czars are "Political
Officers." In the old Soviet Union, they were called Commissars.

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 large their staffs are. We don't know how much power they wield.

The Czars Are Unauthorized
On Feb. 25, 2009, Sen. Robert Byrd, the
longest-serving senator in history wrote a letter to Obama, detailing
his (Byrd's) concern about the number of "czars" (32-34?) Obama has
appointed. None have been confirmed by the Senate.

been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce
These czars are being paid without congressional
authorization, without having testified before any legislative

"promote meaningful American leadership to end the Arab-Israeli and
Israeli-Palestinian conflicts peacefully and diplomatically."
Street, however, also supports talks with Hamas, a terrorist group whose
charter seeks the destruction of Israel. The group opposes
sanctions against Iran and is harshly critical of Israeli offensive

The Lid blog has a report on Mark Lloyd, the associate general
counsel and Chief Diversity Officer at the Federal Communications
Commission, who said, "There are few things I think more frightening in
the American mind than dark skinned black men. Here I am."
He was appointed to the newly created position by Obama in early August.
Before he was appointed a Czar, Lloyd was the vice president for
strategic initiatives at the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.
His specialty is communications policy, and that policy he promotes can
only be described as having a strange obsession with promoting a racial
He is also not a big fan of the First Amendment.
While Obama is playing coy with his plans to shut down conservative talk
radio, we know what his real intentions are, due to his appointment of
Mark Lloyd. Lloyd’s view of the 1st Amendment is shocking:
"It should be clear by now that
here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too
often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to
freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the
critical examination of other communications policies. "[T]he
purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and
block rules that would promote democratic governance."
Like many of Obama’s appointees, Lloyd worked for George
Soros, the foreign billionaire who funds anti-America groups. He
seems to be enamored with dictators and has even publicly praised
Venezuelan Communist dictator Hugo Chavez’s "incredible…democratic
revolution." He also wants to use the Fairness Doctrine to
"balance" talk radio and believes there are too many white people in the
media. He has written that unless there are "more people of color,
gays and other people…we will not change the problem." One of his
solutions to "balance" the media is to fine conservative radio stations
up to $250 million and give the proceeds to National Public Radio.

Chai R. Feldblum
A law professor nominated by Obama to become a commissioner for the
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was a signatory to a radical
2006 manifesto which endorsed polygamous households and argued
traditional marriage should not be privileged "above all others."
Georgetown University Law Center professor Chai R. Feldblum,
nominated as a commissioner for the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission (EEOC), is listed as a signatory to the July 26, 2006
manifesto "Beyond Same-Sex Marriage: A New Strategic Vision for
All Our Families & Relationships."
The manifesto’s signatories
said they proposed a "new vision" for governmental and private
recognition of "diverse kinds" of partnerships, households and families.
They said they hoped to "move beyond the narrow confines of marriage
politics" in the U.S.
Describing various kinds of households as
no less socially, economically, and spiritually worthy than other
relationships, the Beyond Marriage manifesto listed "committed, loving
households in which there is more than one conjugal partner."
Same-sex marriage, the manifesto said, should be "just one option on a
menu of choices that people have about the way they construct their
"Marriage is not the only worthy form of family or
relationship, and it should not be legally and economically privileged
above all others," the manifesto continued. "While we honor those

"freedom from a narrow definition of our sexual lives and gender
choices, identities, and expression."
It also charged that the

Barack Obama’s head of the Federal Communications Commission. He
thinks you’re an idiot. After famously
calling for broadly expanded FCC powers to mandate "transparency"
and "neutrality" on the Internet, and having that plan rejected by a
growing, bipartisan coalition, he now
denies he wants to regulate the Internet.
Meanwhile he also claims the FCC is
trying to "win the case" against Comcast, who has sued to get a federal
court to overturn the FCC’s claimed authority to regulate Internet
activity. But we’re supposed to believe he doesn’t want to regulate the
Internet. Right. The Wall Street Journal
says that the FCC "took a beating" during an appeals court hearing on
the case. A decision against the FCC could be crippling of Genachowski’s
plans, but unfortunately on that front there’s nothing we activists can
do but watch, and wait.
Though we can also join in the second comment period
that the FCC has opened up on Net Neutrality. Your guess is as
good as mine as to where on the FCC’s
website we can do that, though. They’re not exactly
The Corruption Chronicals
says that in a comical move even for czar-happy Obama, who has
rewarded dozens of cronies with distinguished titles, the White House
has named the Obama’s personal Chicago cook as "Senior Policy Adviser
for Healthy Food Initiatives."
It’s no joke, even though is
sounds like a bad one. The Chicago chef’s rapid ascension,
reported this week by a conservative Washington D.C. newspaper, has been
kept under the radar for the last month.
Sam Kass went from being a 20-something, Windy City gourmet cook --
privately paid by the Obama’s to feed them -- to big-time White House
adviser in a matter of months.
In between, Michelle Obama made
Kass a "Food Initiative Coordinator" for her new healthy nutrition
program which is supposed to eliminate childhood obesity within a
generation, especially in the nation’s inner cities. The First
Lady claims that childhood obesity is a threat to national security and
a crisis equivalent to AIDS and youth violence.
Because it’s such
a dire situation, she has convinced her husband’s administration to
spend $400 million a year to bring "healthy foods" to low-income
neighborhoods and $10 billion to revise a decades-old federal measure
that already feeds tens of millions of poor children at school for free.
This culinary revolution no doubt requires a trusted senior policy
adviser -- like Kass -- who is an expert in healthy cuisine. The First
Lady refers to her cook as a "partner in crime" and says it’s "just
pretty powerful" to see what started out as talk in her South Side
Chicago kitchen turn into a major initiative that "hopefully will change
the way we think as a country."
Makes you wonder what Kass, who
also doubles as a White House chef, has been putting in the Obama’s food
all these years. Incidentally, the "most transparent
administration" in history doesn’t want Americans to know how much the
famous family cook earns. Although he’s an important
administration wonk, Kass’s salary is excluded in the Annual Report to
Congress on White House Staff because he’s considered "residence staff"
and those salaries don’t need to be disclosed.
More reparations from the Obamas --

Kyoto conference in 1997 (which called for dramatic climate change

implemented, it would have plunged the world into economic chaos.
Since then, new evidence has revealed that the major climate models
used to justify the Global Warming alarm was, in fact, not accurate. One
would think Stern would address this, but chances are he won’t. Climate
change seems to be more about giving the government control over our
lives, than about phony climate crises. Indeed, Stern has made it clear
that he thinks international agencies, such as the United Nations,
should take the lead on forcing climate change down the throats of
national governments. Stern has even gone as far as to propose that
world powers form an “E8” group, who would meet yearly and dictate
environmental policy to the rest of the world. What about national
sovereignty? Clearly, Stern feels that’s an outdated concept.
Stern is also the

The Washington Times
reports that a teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school
sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man."
At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that
the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse.
That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is Obama's "Safe School Czar."
It's getting hard to keep track of all of Obama's problematic
appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House
employees has broken down.
In this one case, in which Mr.
Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual
predator, he not only failed to do what the law required, but actually
encouraged the relationship.
According to Mr. Jennings' own
description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old
boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the
older man's home that night. When some details about the case
became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called
his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr.
Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was
aware the student had sex with the older man.
However, the new
format) contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a
talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education
Network (GLSEN) , an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality
in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he
told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the
older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is
reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One
Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed
the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the
15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see
every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he
Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a
lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this
case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal.
Don't forget, this is a White House appointee we're talking about.
Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants
serving at his pleasure. Encouraging and covering up man-boy
sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force
Mr. Jennings to come clean.
Mr. Jennings has made extremely
radical statements promoting homosexuality in schools and about his
utter contempt for religion that render him unsuitable for a prestigious
White House appointment. His job in the Obama administration is to
ensure student safety, and this scandal directly calls into question his
ability to perform that job. Mr. Jennings and Obama administration
officials refuse to answer any questions about this newly discovered
evidence. A lot of Americans want answers about this guy and how
he was approved for a job in the White House.
It gets worse.
Jennings was the founder of the GLSEN and co-chair of the lesbian, gay,
and bisexual (LGB) fundraising for Barack Obama. As the founder
and Executive Director of GLSEN, Jennings defended GLSEN during the

policy "czars," last night FOX News host Sean Hannity looked at the new
John P. Holdren.
Holdren’s official titles are:
Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy;
Assistant to the President for Science and Technology; and Co-Chair of
the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
Teresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental Policy at
Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, Holdren is no
stranger to controversy.
As Hannity pointed out in his segment,
Holdren has been quoted as calling the United States the "meanest of
wealthy countries." He has also, according to Hannity, "left the door
open" to prosecuting "global warming deniers."
radicalism dates back to the late 1960s.
In 1969 Holdren wrote
that it was imperative "to convince society and its leaders that there
is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demanding,
and all-consuming population growth." That same year, he and (the now
largely discredited) professor of population studies Paul Ehrlich
jointly predicted: "If … population control measures are not
initiated immediately and effectively, all the technology man can bring
to bear will not fend off the misery to come."
In 1971 Holdren and
Ehrlich warned that "some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear
war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century."
Viewing capitalism as an economic system that is inherently harmful
to the natural environment, Holdren and Ehrlich in 1973 called for "a
massive campaign … to de-develop the United States" and other Western
nations in order to conserve energy and facilitate growth in

After Vivek Kundra took
charge of the District of Columbia's technology operations in late 2007,
he ushered in a new era of experimentation -- adopting popular Web sites
such as YouTube, Wikipedia, and Twitter to improve city services. Now,
as the newly appointed chief information officer of the federal
government, he plans to bring the same spirit to the national stage. But
there's a huge difference in complexity and scale. The District's
technology budget is relatively tiny, and its staff concentrated, while
the federal government's budget of $71 billion is spread across dozens
of departments and agencies that often fight outside efforts to
influence their operations.
Yet Kundra is serious about bringing
the latest Net technologies to the federal government. In his
first one-on-one interview since being named to his post, the
34-year-old native of India told BusinessWeek he hopes to transform the
way the government uses technology. He plans on making it more
efficient by getting agencies to share information and computers.
And he'll use social networking Web sites to open a conversation between
the government and citizens. He also believes government should no
longer build all of its computing systems and Web sites from scratch,
the way it has in the past. "I want to make sure we're leveraging
innovations from throughout the world," he says.
Kundra faces a
daunting task. The federal government is better known for technology
fiascoes than successes. In the 1990s, the IRS took more than a
decade and $8 billion to upgrade its tax return processing system, and
the FBI's $600 million Trilogy project, aimed at streamlining the
agency's case tracking system, was so badly botched in the wake of the
