Obama's Radicals - Part II
Now we go to President Obama's many Czars, or special advisers, as Obama calls them, not all of whom are radicals, who may or may not be allowed by our Constitution and who have no Congressional approval nor oversight. Their salaries are about $175,000 each, with staffs of up to 10 people.
Kevin Jennings has been appointed to be President Obama’s “Safe Schools” czar in the Department of Education. He is the founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) — which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious “Fistgate” scandal (in which young teens were guided on how to perform dangerous homosexual perversions including “fisting. He supports promoting homosexuality and gender confusion as normative to even young students. He made that comment in a New York City church.
On March 25, 2000, GLSEN put on a conference called "TeachOut" for kids across and public school teachers across Massachusetts. This conference was co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Education. At this conference children as young as 12 years old were taught by state employees how to engage in various extremely dangerous (and disgusting) homosexual sex acts. Scott Whiteman, then an employee of Parents Rights Coalition attended the conference and tape-recorded those workshops. Soon afterwards, a tape was released with the actual voices of the adults -- state employees -- made during the workshop (described below). That tape sent shock waves across the country. The story was covered by media in the US and other countries, and is even written about in several books. Soon afterwards a court banned the posting or distribution of the "Fistgate" tape until recently.
Among the goals were to build more Gay/Straight Alliances in Massachusetts and expand homosexual teaching into the lower grades. Scores of gay-friendly teachers and administrators attended. They received state "professsional development credits."
Jennings also broke the law when a 15 year old male student confided to him that he was having a sexual affair with an older man. Instead of calling the police, as the law demands, this teacher told the boy to be sure to use a condom……
Green Jobs Czar: Van Jones,an Apollo board member, was Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Some time ago, while he was in prison he wrote: “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary".
He is a man who proclaimed himself to be a "communist" in the 1990s and signed 9/11 "truther" petitions suggesting Bush administration complicity in the Sept. 11 attacks. Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), the revolutionary group formed by self-described "communist" and "rowdy black nationalist" Van Jones, held a vigil in Oakland, California, "mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world" on the day after 9/11 and was now to be part of the Obama administration's push to turn Sept. 11 into a National Day of Service focused on the promotion of the radical environmentalist agenda. Jones has proclaimed publicly that whites are purposely poisoning minority neighborhoods. Jones said, "The white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities."
Explaining his job as Green Czar, he said, "We're going to change the whole system! We're going to change the whole thing. We want a new system. We want a new system." This statement is especially troubling coming from a self-avowed communist radical with extensive ties to other communist revolutionaries.
Guantanamo Closure Czar: Daniel Fried
Health Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle Director of the White House Office for Health Reform.
Information Czar: Vivek Kundra
International Climate Czar: Todd Stern – recommends “an ecological board of directors able to operate outside the bureaucracy and politics of large UN conventions.” He espoused the need to put major environmental decisions in the hands of a small group of people rather than a gathering of all nations.
Intelligence Czar: Dennis Blair - one of Blair’s picks: John Deutch, a former CIA director once accused of major security lapses, who's been appointed to a temporary panel reviewing troubled, top-secret spy-satellite programs.
After Deutch resigned as CIA director in 1996, agency officials discovered he had stored hundreds of pages of classified files on his home computers, despite repeated warnings that they could be intercepted via the Internet. Because of the incident, Deutch was stripped of his high-level security clearances, and a criminal probe into the matter culminated in January 2001, when the ex-spy chief agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of mishandling classified material. (The next day, Clinton, in one of his final acts as president, pardoned him.)
Auto czar Steve Rattner, entangled in an SEC investigation of his former company, Quandrangle, topped that list until he stepped down earlier this month amid the darkening ethics cloud.
Mideast Peace Czar: George Mitchell
Pay Czar: Kenneth Feinberg, or as Obama called him, a “Special Master for Compensation”
Regulatory Czar: Cass Sunstein- proposed bans on hunting and eating meat. In his book Animal Rights, he argued that attorneys should be permitted to sue for violations of existing animal protection laws, naming the animals as plaintiffs.
Sunstein's 2004 book, The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever, advocates the Second Bill of Rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Among these rights are a right to an education, a right to a home, a right to health care, and a right to protection against monopolies; Sunstein argues that the Second Bill of Rights has had a large international impact and should be revived in the United States. His 2001 book, Republic.com, argued that the Internet may weaken democracy because it allows citizens to isolate themselves within groups that share their own views and experiences, and thus cut themselves off from any information that might challenge their beliefs, a phenomenon known as cyberbalkanization. He also supports the bill that would give Obama emergency control of the Internet, as well as a fairness doctrine for the Internet, from which he has since stepped away.
Science Czar: John Holdren :From his own book: "Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society." "A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men," they wrote. "The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control." "It must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets or livestock." “The fetus, given the opportunity to develop properly before birth, and given the essential early socializing experiences and sufficient nourishing food during the crucial early years after birth, will ultimately develop into a human being.”

• Energy Czar Carol Browner - Obama's Energy and Climate Czar, headed the EPS for Clinton. Upon leaving office, and directly counter to a judge's edict, she told her staff to delete all her files. She was declared to be in contempt of court. She also sent out illegal lobbying material from her office. All this after once saying she was "proud to expand the public's right to know". One of her ideas for energy conservation is to "hold back [heating and air-conditioning] power to homes". Barack Obama has noted that he keeps his White House thermostats at 80 degrees... Browner is one of 14 leaders of a socialist group "Commission for a Sustainable World Society" which calls for global governance [and the loss of the soverignty of the USA], and for rich companies to shrink their economies. This information was removed from her website after it's discovery caused a flap.
