Obama Czars: Who Influenced President Obama Most?
Despite my title, not all of the people mentioned here are Czars but they do share a common radical worldview.
They say you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep.
One cannot choose ones parents, but it is interesting that both of President Obama's were Atheists and Marxists.
I do not believe any previous American President was reared in these philosophies.
Frank Marshall Davis
Obama's early mentor was Frank Marshall Davis a Marxist who was a big fan of Joseph Stalin, murderer of at least 20 million people.
Davis taught Obama that "Black people have a reason to hate" and that Jesus Christ was simply a "Dixie Nigger."
Bill Ayres and Reverend Wright
Obama's friend Bill Ayres, who helped him write one of his books, is an unrepentant communist terrorist who once said that after the overthrow of the United States government, which he hoped to accomplish, he felt 25 million Americans would have to be eliminated who wouldn't conform to his ideology.
Obama's preacher of perhaps 20 years, Reverend Wright, is an anti-Semitic, anti-American, Marxist, believer in Black Liberation Theology.
When all this came up during the Presidential campaign, Obama distanced himself from these people and asked the electorate to "Judge me by the people I surround myself with."
After his election, Obama chose people to surround himself with. Let's take a look at who some of these people are.
Timothy Geithner was put in charge of the United States Treasury by Obama, despite being a tax cheat. And for all those who blame former President Bush for everything under the sun, who was the head of the Federal Reserve under Bush? Timothy Geithner.
Van Jones was selected by Obama as Green Jobs Czar despite the well known fact he is a Communist Revolutionary and Racist.
John Holdren was named by Obama as the Science Czar despite having wrote in his book:
"Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not; The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food; Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise."
Cass Sunstein was picked by Obama to be his Regulatory Czar despite having espoused "using the courts to impose a 'chilling effect' on speech that might hurt someone's feelings. He thinks that the bloggers have been rampaging out of control and that new laws need to be written to corral them."
Sunstein also has advocated a policy under which the government would "presume" someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.
Sunstein also has written "Under our proposal, the word marriage would no longer appear in any laws, and marriage licenses would no longer be offered or recognized by any level of government."
Mark Lloyd and Robert McChesney
Obama named Mark Lloyd as his Diversity Czar despite the fact that Lloyd is a Socialist admirer of Hugo Chavez, wants stifle Free Speech for Conservatives, and is a Racist.
A good friend of both Lloyd and Jones—who has also been invited to the White House three times—is Robert McChesney, who is on the record saying,
"Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to be necessarily part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself. Also, there is no real answer, but to remove, brick by brick, the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles."
Carol Browner is Obama's Energy Czar even though she is a Socialist in favor of a Global Government who oversaw the destruction of EPA computer files when she was the head of that agency under President Clinton in brazen violation of a federal judge’s order requiring the agency to preserve its records.
Buffy Wicks works for Obama in the White House and recently was caught trying to recruit artists to produce propaganda for the President using taxpayers funds provided through the National Endowment for the Arts.
Andy Stern is the head of the SEIU and the most frequent guest at the White House this year. He is a Socialist scam artist who has been described as a racketeer by none other than Ralph Nader. His organization is rife with corruption.
Kevin Jennings was appointed by Obama to the Department of Education. Jennings has said that he "reacts violently to anyone who professed any kind of religion."
He also is in favor of "diversity policy that mandates including LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) themes in the school curriculum."
Jeff Jones is with the Apollo Alliance that President Obama allowed to craft the $787B Stimulus package. Here are some quotes from Jones:
"We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men, deeply affected by the historic events of our time in the struggle against U.S. imperialism." "
"Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside."
"The only path to the final defeat of imperialism and the building of socialism is revolutionary war."
"Revolutionary war will be complicated and protracted. It includes mass struggle and clandestine struggle, peaceful and violent, political and economic, cultural and military, where all forms are developed in harmony with the armed struggle."
"We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society."
"Our job is to tap the discontent seething in many sectors of the population, to find allies everywhere people are hungry or angry, to mobilize poor and working people against imperialism."
"Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the eradication of the social system based on profit."
I don't know if any of this means anything to any of my readers. The Left says that to even mention such quotes is a racist smear campaign. To me, it is a troubling list of people who influence our President. There are other pernicious figures I could mention, but this should be an ample sample. Many of the others are assigned to Education, which I may address separately in the future.
