I went to DU to see what they were saying. One poster said Beck will smell blood..more will come.

Yep, those Czars need a research campaign.

It is surreal to read posts on DU these days. They say some of the same things we do..but for different reasons.

Republicans need to call for an audit of Jones agency to see what he did with our taxpayer money.

Czars is a misnomer.

The creation of Czars unaccountable to Congress and American people is the problem.

Congress can control POTUS on this as it has the pursestrings but is complict in czar-creating.

Congress is the check and balance on a renegade POTUS like we are seeing. They are failing their sworn duty.

Inquiring Minds Need to Know....
Are all of these people being paid by the people and how much? What exactly do they do everyday? Do they have a staff and offices? Where do the offices and staff perform their duties? Can they write documents ard enact policies that get carried out by the government?

Has Obama even finished filling the sub secretary positions yet? He still had hundreds open in April. Maybe we need to make the point that he is so busy appointed Czars that he is not taking care of business.

Seems like the number of czars is approaching fifty.

(Fifty state soviets to report to the supreme soviet in Washington, when the time comes.)

IMHO

I'm sure these Czars are drawing a hefty pay check, so who's Congressional approved budget is funding it?

Great questions.

Also, how are we defining “czar”? Will the obamaites come back and say that they are merely advisors? That every president has had, and needs advisors?

“AIDS czar, Jeffrey Crowley [openly gay white man]”

And yet we are supposed to believe that AIDS is not a gay disease.

No more czars! No more pogroms!

Of course an ineligible POTUS that nominated these individuals makes them technically impotent to retain their positions.

Just something to remind people that Obama is, still is, and never was legally by the Constituition eligible to be POTUS.

The solution is available, it needs to be enforced.

Agreed.

Except I don’t think an ‘openly gay man’ should be controversial generally, let alone as the AIDS czar. The ‘czar’ bit, I of course still take issue with.

They failed their sworn duty the day they certified the electoral college without questioning his eligibility!

The are no longer the "check and balance" but are complicit in the takeover.

And they will be ousted en masse from Congress in the next election cycle for it. The Dimocrats are going to pay a huge politcal price for this Obamanation.

My copy of the Constitution must be incomplete. I am still looking for the clause that says: “The president may, without oversight, appoint as many “czars” as he may desire, who are accountable only to him, and whose duties, salary, etc. need not be made public.”

Very good post. Maybe the clause is in fine print somewhere, perhaps the same place that allows the government to issue much currency as it desires by an agency whose books need not be made public.

And the salary per Czar is?

And the total payroll we taxpayers are footing for the Czars is?

And the average number of staff per Czar is?

And the total payroll we taxpayers are footing for their staff is?

And the travel, meal and entertainment and office allotment cost is how much for us taxpayers?

Or his clan. Isn’t this how African countries operate? First we have half his family and cronies living in the WH or traveling with him for vacations at taxpayers’ expense, and then there are the buddies and hangers-on who are given lucrative positions in the administration. Instead of czars, you could call them his posse or retinue. Obama is either a chief or a king.

Van Jones gave us an unintended peek into either how poorly these “Czars” have been vetted, or, proof that someone at the top of the food chain deliberately over-ruled the Secret Service, because Van Jones would not have been allowed past the front gate of the White House as a visitor because of his police record, at the very least.

I think Van Jones was the tip of the iceberg, and there are going to be others who follow him out the door, and soon I hope...

We need to split up in groups of 44 vai 9/12 or here and coordinate our research.

No sense finding something someone else has.

A 100 people per would really knock the skin off the ball IMHO....

Who, What, When, Where, Why....

We need a mega dollar donor to assemble a group of retired FBI/CIA types as consultants (44 of them for starters not including other staff) and do this in a hurry.

My question is, where do the Czar's intersect with one another, (projects, schools, 501(c)(3)'s etc).

My guess these folks are all fellow travelers, down the new progressive/socialist road with some savory aspects no doubt....
