New Czars Exercise Unprecedented Control over Government Policies and Programs While Operating Under a Veil of Secrecy
Judicial Watch, the public interest organization that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released President Obamas Czarspdf, a special report on the Presidents appointing of policy advisors, many of whom enjoy positions of power and authority in the administration and yet have not been subjected to vetting and confirmation by the U.S. Senate. Judicial Watchs extensive investigation exhaustively documents these czar appointments and details the control these czars exercise over government operations.
From the reports introduction:
This Judicial Watch Special Report analyzes the proliferation of so-called czars in the Obama administration. President Barack Obama has installed personal advisors in czar positions in the White House and has created new czar positions elsewhere in the Executive Branch. As of the date of this report, the number of czars that have been appointed by the President, or by others in his administration, appears to total 45. In addition, there are as many as 18 other unfilled or planned czar positions.
Many of these czars are unconfirmed by the Senate and are largely unaccountable to Congress. Further, their activities are often outside the reach of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), creating a veil of secrecy about their precise role in the administration.
The new report is available at Judicial Watchs websitepdf
Barack Obamas unconstitutional use of czars to help run his administration is at odds with republican, limited, and accountable government. Obama has simply installed his radical leftist allies in various positions of power while thumbing his nose at Congress and the American people. As we document in this report, too many of these czars have proven to be corrupt or radicals (or sometimes both). No wonder the Obama administration fights tooth and nail to allow these czars to operate in secret. Nevertheless, Judicial Watch managed to develop this comprehensive list of czars as part of efforts to ensure government accountability.
Thanks (sort of) for posting. In all seriousness, I felt the twinge of nausea halfway through the document. It is frightening. How could this happen in a nation founded to secure Natural Rights? Allowed to go on, and if Hussein is reelected, there will be no restraint on him to appoint, say, a czar to oversee transport of Freepers to labor camps.
Take him down hard before his tentacles pull down We The People.
We must organize and never let this happen again. Spread the word. . .
Thanks for the links, what a great source for leftist bios.
Jarret and her family and friends are real pieces of work.
You’re welcome jazusamo. These people are well organized, well connected and network a lot. We need to do the same. We are at War for the survival of our Sacred Republic!

The Obama Czar & Fascism Ping.
“The Czar system is blatently illegal under the Constitution.”
The only way you’re going to put teeth into this idea is by a Constitutional Amendment that outlaws such positions.
I’m not sure how such an amendment should be worded, but I think it could become a popular idea in 2013 (assuming Obama is defeated), and if it can be gotten through Congress, there are probably enough state legislatures to ratify it.
Failing that, unless the Constitution _specifically says_ that such positions shall not be created, they _will_ be created, and what are we going to do about it?
As I recall, I believe for some reason that other previous administrations, even Republican presidents, have also called some of their advisors “Czars.” The term is not original with Obama....but I agree he has taken the use of the term and the intensification of their power to new levels.
Ali Obama and his 45 thieves.
