Premier Obama’s Kremlin
With the recent resignation of Van Jones, Premier Obama’s Green Czar, much needed attention is now being focused on just who these Czars are and what are their respective backgrounds. First, the one thing most or all of them have in common is a far left, liberal even insurrectionist, in some cases, background. Let’s examine a few of the most radical; remember during the 2008 campaign Obama told an audience “judge me by the people with whom I surround myself”.
First we will “shine the light of truth” on Jones, the former Green Czar. In his case he should have been the Red Czar which best characterizes his political philosophy. A graduate of Yale Law School, Jones was appointed in March 2009 charged with the responsibility to focus on environmentally-friendly employment within the administration and boost support for the idea nationwide. Early on Jones was the founder of Green- For- All, an organization focused on creating green jobs in impoverished areas. Also he was the co-founder of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Color of Change, which included Bay Area Police Watch, a group devoted to "protecting the community from police misconduct" He was arrested in 1993 during the Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of cops in the Rodney King incident and again in 1999 during Seattle protests against the World Trade Organization. While in jail Jones admits he met all these young radical people of color who were communists and anarchists. He admitted that was what he needed to be a part of and spent the next ten years of his life working with a lot of those people he met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary! He referred to himself a rowdy nationalist and a communist in 1994. Jones formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia.
Next Lefty to the plate is Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass R. Sunstein whom he appointed in January 2009. Sunstein, a Harvard Law School Professor is best known for advancing a field called "law and behavioral economics" that seeks to shape law and policy around the way research shows people actually behave. In his 2002 book, Republic.com, he discussed the drawbacks of limitless choices on the Internet that allow people to seek out only like-minded people and opinions that merely fortify their own views. Thus, he pushed the concept of the government requiring sites to link to opposing views. In 2004 he wrote Animal Rights, a book suggesting that animals ought to be able to bring suit, with private citizens acting as their representatives, to ensure that animals are not treated in a way that violates current law. He also advocated banning hunting in the U.S. in a 2007 speech at Harvard.
Third up in this all lefty lineup is Energy and Environment Czar Carol Browner who was appointed January 2009. An advocate of regulation and conservation Browner worked on the Socialist International's Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which argues that the global community must work collectively to address environmental policies. She described the Bush administration as the "worst environmental administration ever" while orchestrating private discussions between the White House and auto industry officials on vehicle fuel efficiency standards, keeping the talks as quiet as possible. Mary Nichols, the head of the California Air Resources Board, admitted "We put nothing in writing, ever."
Batting cleanup for the Reds is Lefty Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd. Lloyd is by far the most dangerous Czar in the lineup. He was appointed July 29, 2009 and has pledged to silence the Talk Radio critics of the president. He like the Premier he serves, share a common hero — Saul Alinsky — who wrote the community organizer’s bible, “Rules for Radicals.” It speaks of confrontation or, as candidate Obama put it, of “getting in their faces” as a way to obtain power, not from the people or for the people, but over the people. Lloyd has written that we make too much of the constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of speech and the press and as a result thereof he wants control over what we hear on talk radio and cable news and read on the internet!
Fifth up, is another lefty, Climate Czar Todd Stern. Appointed in January 2009, Stern is charged with developing international approaches to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. He is credited with helping negotiate the Kyoto and Buenos Aires climate pacts, both of which put the United States at a great competitive disadvantage. Stern has written extensively on climate change, and has called on the American government and the international community to take a series of steps to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. As expected Stern is a big supporter of the Cap-and-Trade bill which would severely cripple American industry by limiting carbon emissions while placing no such limits on our foreign competitors. This bill, if passed would facilitate the mass exodus of American manufacturing overseas.
The next Czar, although not as obvious an anti Capitalist as his five aforementioned predecessors, is Car Czar Ron Bloom. His appointment corroborates Obama’s “spread the wealth philosophy”. Bloom was the special assistant to president of the United Steelworkers union from 1996-Feb 2009. He has negotiated restructuring deals for more than 50 companies, getting major concessions for unions from companies. The product of a New York in a pro-union family, Bloom oversaw the restructuring of General Motors and Chrysler during the recent government takeover of the auto industry. Also, early on in his life he was a member of the Service Employees International Union, the group that is now showing up at anti Obama Health Care Rallies and beating up the “grass roots supporters” against the Government takeover of the health care system.
Continuing on in the anti Capitalist vein we have Science Czar John Holdren. A product of
Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, 1996-2009, and the University of California, Berkeley where he served as Professor of Energy and Resources Emeritus, 1996 to present, Holdren fits the Anti Capitalist pro leftist model of Obama’s acolytes! He is an outspoken advocate of the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and believes the United States should sign the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty. In a 2008 New York Times op-ed, Holdren called climate change skeptics “dangerous” members of a “denier fringe.” In 1971, he co-authored a paper in Global Ecology suggesting "some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century." He co-authoring a book titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment which includes this statement: "population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution."
The above listed 7 Czars are either outright self proclaimed Communist, anarchists, insurrectionist, Marxists, or at the very least anti capitalists! Remember during the 2008 campaign Obama told an audience “judge me by the people with whom I surround myself”. Well here are seven of the 30 plus Czars that he has appointed which are far outside main stream America. Couple this 20% to 25% of the people with whom he has chosen to surround himself with William Aires, Jeremiah Wright, Bernadette Dohrn and the rest we are left with only one conclusion, Barrack Hussein Obama is himself a Marist, Insurrectionist, Anarchist, Communist!
