This is NOT a complete list because I haven’t found one yet. Perhaps no one can keep up with Obama’s czar appointments coming fast and furious. It is estimated that there are currently 21 czars and counting.
CZARS APPOINTED BY OBAMA:
Border czar, climate c., cyber c., drug c., economic (to the middle class) c., energy c., faith-based c., Guantanamo c., health care c., housing c., non-proliferation c., Office of Management and Budget (OMB) c., regulatory c., technology c., terrorism c., urban policy c., ………
These people are above cabinet-level positions, are not vetted or approved by Congress, and are not elected, yet answer directly to the President and have his ear. They carry out Obama’s directions under the radar. This is a dictatorship.
The longest serving Democrat in the Senate, Robert Byrd of W. Va., is sounding the alarm. However, his voice doesn’t have the power it used to since he’s been removed as chairman of the Appropriations Committee.
This article is a MUST-READ to understand the danger in the White House and breaking faith with the Constitution!
“Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.”
“As presidential assistants and advisers, these White House staffers are not accountable for their actions to the Congress, to cabinet officials, and to virtually anyone but the president,” Byrd wrote. “They rarely testify before congressional committees, and often shield the information and decision-making process behind the assertion of executive privilege. In too many instances, White House staff have been allowed to inhibit openness and transparency, and reduce accountability.” (This is how it benefits Obama to make them czars answering only to him. He and they can claim “executive privelege.”)
Byrd, on Wednesday asked Obama to “consider the following: that assertions of executive privilege will be made only by the president, or with the president’s specific approval; that senior White House personnel will be limited from exercising authority over any person, any program, and any funding within the statutory responsibility of a Senate-confirmed department or agency head; that the president will be responsible for resolving any disagreement between a Senate-confirmed agency or department head and White House staff; and that the lines of authority and responsibility in the administration will be transparent and open to the American public.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0209/19303.html
This is a threat to our freedom and our republican form of government. This is not an exaggeration. The threat is real and the threat is here, now, in the White House.
Will you sit by and allow it to happen? Will you force your representatives to act on behalf of We the People and freedom? Will you educate people in your sphere of influence?
WHAT WILL YOU DO TO PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION?
