Obama CZARs

No one knows really how many Czars the Obama Regime has brought into the White House.  We know some of them, and they are some very unsavory characters.  Take for instant, Van Jones, who had communist leanings and was a wacked-out 9/11 Truther.  That got him fired.

The InkDemon has named at least four of POTUS’ czars.   Glenn Beck has named all of the Obama Regime’s czars here

 Valarie Jarret, The Sphinxess Czar

By all accounts, Valarie Jarret may have been the person that brought Czar Van Jones into the Obama’s regime’s Czar network.

 
Mark Lloyd, FCC Media Diversity Czar

Mark Lloyd is not on Beck’s list, but Michelle Malkin’s blog  lists him as the Media Diversity Czar.


Todd Stern, Climate Czar 

According to Beck’s web site:

• Served in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 1999; Was Head of the Initiative on Global Climate Change (1997 to 1999) and Adviser to the Secretary of the Treasury (1999 to 2001)
• As a top aide to President Clinton, helped negotiate the Kyoto and Buenos Aires climate pacts, both of which fell apart partially because of a lack of U.S. support during Bush administration.
• After Bush was elected to office, went to the Wilmer Hale law firm, where he is a partner in the regulatory and government affairs division.
• Was most recently a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, where he focused on climate change and environmental issues.
• 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.
• Supports a national cap-and-trade system that would limit carbon emissions and reduce U.S. dependency on foreign oil

 
Border Czar Alan Bersin 

According to Beck’s web site, Alan Bersin:

• Talking about border security shortly before he was named Clinton border czar in 1995, said he wanted to focus on suspected smugglers of both drugs and people and was not interested in prosecuting “economic migrants.”
• Often tied to the 1994 border policy called “Operation Gatekeeper.” The policy shifted the U.S. focus from the arresting of immigrants who actually crossed the border to an increased border presence designed to stop border crossing in the first place. When Bersin left the position in 1998, border arrests were on pace for an 18-year low of just more than 200,000. Latino groups complained that Operation Gatekeeper was immoral, saying the program monitored the border near San Diego but simply forced illegal immigrants to other, more dangerous areas.
• Has given more than $50,000 to political campaigns since 1999, almost all of it to Democrats.


Jeffrey Crowley, AIDS Czar 

According to Beck’s web site, Crowley:

• Coordinates HIV/AIDS policy domestically and internationally.
• Senior Research Scholar at Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute and a Senior Scholar at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, Georgetown University Law Center.
• Was Deputy Executive Director for Programs at the National Association of People with AIDS
• Has Master of Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health


Richard Holbrooke is the Afghan Czar

Glenn Beck’s web site says:

• Will work with CENTCOM head Gen. David Petraeus to integrate U.S. civilian and military efforts in the region.
• 45 years of experience have made him a fixture of the Democrats’ foreign policy establishment.
• Was U.S. ambassador to U.N., 1999-2001
• Brokered the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords in Bosnia
• Also served as Assistant secretary of state, East Asia and the Pacific (1976 to 1980); worked in foreign service (1962 to 1976)
• From 1972 through 1976, was the editor of Foreign Policy magazine.


Czar Van Jones abdicated his “throne”

According to Beck’s web site:

Jones said, “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.” In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. “I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,” he said. “By August, I was a communist.” In 1994, the young activists 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. They protested police brutality and got arrested for crashing through police barricades. In 1996, Jones decided to launch his own operation, which he named the Ella Baker Center after an unsung hero of the civil-rights movement.”

John Holdren is the Science Czar
Science Czar John Holdren holds some extreme views

According to Glenn Beck’s web site:

“Some conservative media outlets have called attention to a book Holdren co-authored in 1977 titled Ecoscience: Population, Resources, and Environment. The book reportedly includes this statement: “population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.” Holdren’s office says he “does not now and never has been an advocate of compulsory abortions or other repressive measures to limit fertility.”


Urban Czar Adolfo Carrion

According to Beck, Carrion:

  • Has undergraduate degree in world religions from Kings College; became an associate pastor at a Bronx church; earned his master’s degree in urban planning from Hunter College
  • Was Bronx Borough President (2001-2009); President of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (since 2007); City Council member (1998 to 2000)
  • Many reporters say he has higher ambitions and will probably run for New York City mayor in the next ten years.
  • Was an active campaigner for Obama, travelling across the country to speak on his behalf. He focused particularly on states with large Hispanic populations.
  •  The NY Daily News reported numerous developers made tens of thousands of dollars in campaign donations to Carrión around the same time he was considering approving their projects in the Bronx.


Information Czar  Vivek Kundra

According to Beck’s web site, Kundra:

• Basically in charge of overseeing other federal agency CIOs and for setting technology policy across the government.
• Head of a federal technology budget that amounts to $71 billion annually
• Operation is housed in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and will likely have authority to question how money in departmental technology budgets is used
• Formerly head of the District of Columbia’s technology operations
• Shortly after he joined the OMB, federal authorities raided his old District government office. They arrested two technology office managers and a subcontractor, charging them with a bribery scheme that allegedly defrauded the city out of at least $500,000. Kundra was not a suspect in the case, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
• Has a masters from Maryland in information technology.
• Experience: Washington, D.C. Chief Technology Officer (2007 to 2009); State of Virginia’s Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Trade (2006 to 2007); CEO of computer security firm Creostar.

 

Describing the Obama Regime

We must be consistent on how we describe the Obama regime.

We must remember Google picks up these comments on blogs and even tweets and indexes them.  The more often a word or phrase is used, the higher Google and the other search engines with put weight on them. 

Here are some examples:

  • It’s is the Obama Regime – not White House or D.C.   Example:  The Obama Regime was the laughing stock of the world for his failure to ….
  • Use the words fail or failure generously when mentioning Obama.  Those words get picked up and associated.   Example:  He’s Obama,  the leader of the Obama Regime,  and he’s a failed president.
  • Also use communism or socialism when mentioning Obama, his regime or his failed presidency.    Example:  The Obama regime’s venture into overt socialism and his association with avowed communists have contributed to the regime’s failure.
  • Also the word “joker” should be used to associate with Obama.  Example: Not only is his picture plastered almost everywhere as a Joker on posters at the demonstration, but the Obama Regime’s failure to act on the economic crisis makes him a true joker.
  • Another word to associate with Obama is narcissist.  Read this link.  Example:  The Obama Regime showed the narcissism of its leader today when members failed to show respect for the flag.

 

A Glance at British, Canadian Healthcare

No one knows the future if Obama-care is forced on Americans, but we can look at countries where socialized medicine is used today.

These health care systems are in chaos or are being increasingly draconian to cut costs!  For example:

  • Terminally ill elderly are being forced to die prematurely in the United Kingdom. LINK

  • Thirsty patients drink water from flower vases in the United Kingdom.  LINK

  • U.K. mums give birth in toilets, corridors, elevators, and offices because there are no rooms.  LINK

  • System-wide, the U.K. National Healthcare System (NHS) is short of qualified midwives.  There are almost no OB-GYN births in the U.K.  British mums get midwives, many from third-world countries.

  • Some 1,000 deaths one year alone in NHS were caused by the superbug MRSA.  LINK

  • Ants, cockroaches, rats cause infections in U.K. NHS hospitals and clinics.  LINK

  • Filthy U.K. hospitals threatened with closure. LINK

  • Patients become angry and frustrated overappallingly filthy hospitals.  One lady patient was so appalled that she cleaned up her own ward while plugged into an IV. LINK

  • Disillusioned nurses are sometimes cruel to patients.  LINK

  • U.K. hospitals still have wards and open bays.  Space problems causes men and women to be put in the same wards!  This has been reported in the British press.  LINK

  • Patient care is deplorable in some cases. LINK LINK

  • The Canadian HC system is about to implode.  This was reported on the Fox News Channel.  Canadians are crossing over the U.S. border to get HC. LINK LINK LINK

The list goes on.

An update on Obama-Care

BREAKING: Charles Krauthhammer, whose words are always carefully weighed, believes Obama-Care 1.0 will die.  He suggested a Obama-care 2.0 to replace it.  LINK to Krauthhammer article.


At this point, I still believe some form Obama-care will become law.  The Democrats have the votes.  They can ram it through.  Whether that benefits them in the long run is debatable.

Liberal Dynasty

But consider this: Obama-Care will be the Democrat’s flagship program like Social Security was 60 years ago.  No matter how bad it is; the liberal media will provide cover.  Democrats will tout their socialized medicine as the beginning of their socialist workers paradise. 

At every national election, Democrats will scare voters by claiming that if they (the Democrats) lose the election the medical coverage that voters depend on will end.   Of course, they will promise fixes and more funding in the healthcare system.  This link show what the British liberals say at election time.

Obama-care is not about health.  It’s about creating a socialist-Democrat dynasty in the United States!

Not Compatible With Open Borders

Free medical care and open borders are not compatible.   Illegal aliens from the Caribbean, Central American, and South America will stream into the U.S.  

The U.S. cannot fund a national health care system and a strong military.   This has been the case in Europe where our NATO allies have all but pulled the plug on their military machines.   There are hints that emaciating the military is one of the objectives of the socialists who support Obama-care.

Risky Lifestyles Will Cost Taxpayers

America is a nation of millions of people living risky lifestyles. Whether it is obesity, drug use, or promiscuous and deviant (and now legal) sexual activities, many of these Americans will need long-term medical care, paid for by the taxpayers who have lived non-risky life styles.

Many of  the people, who exercise their “First Amendment rights” and mark their bodies with hideous tattoos, may one day face the the consequences.  Hepatitis C and other viral diseases will require years and thousands of dollars of treatment.  LINK to the Mayo Clinic.

Here is what I see Obama-care will introduce:

  • Abortions on demand will be paid for by public funding.   LINK
  • Obama says illegal aliens will be denied Obama-care.  That’s may or may not be correct right now.  However, aliens can become eligible for medical care with a sweep of Obama’s hand through a presidential executive order or amnesty.  However, one research service believes that HR-3200 (The House Obama-care bill.) does not exclude illegal aliens.  LINK
  • If amnesty is extended to illegal aliens, they will immediately sponsor into this country their extended families.  Estimates are that this will add another 120 million people eligible for HC into the U.S.  LINK
  • The number of uninsured in the U.S. has been claimed to be as high as 94 million and as low as 47 million.  The actual number is far less, according to the census.   LINK to the Heritage Foundation. Link to image.
  • Whatever the real number of uninsured is, it will create a shortage of doctors, nurses, and hospital space.  
  • Cost of a socialized medicine is far under-estimated.  Even the Congressional Budget office confirms that the costs will be much much more than the Obama Regime claims. Link to CBO  LINK
  • Access to medical care will be rationed or even denied if it is deemed to be too expensive.
  • Elderly citizens, who believe now that they are entitled to healthcare, will be denied because their lives will be determined to be too expensive to maintain.   Rationing is the norm in the United Kingdom and every other nation where socialized medicine is.
  • Cancer patients will not be denied health insurance, but costs and rationing will cause Obama-care to denied to them the newest medicines and treatments if it is too expensive or not authorized.  LINK
  • Current Medicare users will be squeezed.  Obama-Care will cut $150 billion from Medicare Advantage.  LINK
  • The Congressional Budget Office estimates that seniors will pay 20% more for drugs under Obama-care.  LINK
  • Government sanctioned, doctor assisted suicide will become routine.
  • Doctors who were enthusiastic about helping mankind will slowly become crushed and lose enthusiasm under the bureaucracy.  LINK
  • One plan to provide health care for only the uninsured is bogus because those who have insurance will drop it to get “free” healthcare.  After all,  they will correctly reason that they are paying for it.
  • Businesses who provide healthcare will be taxed to pay for those not on healthcare.  These business may choose to drop their HC and tell employees to jump to the public option.
  • Many of those who are uninsured have chosen not to pay for health insurance for various reasons.  Some are wealthy and would pay for medical care out of pocket.  Those more affluent taxpayers will probably jump  in and out of the health care system, depending on their own wishes.

Look At Socialized Med In Canada, U.K.

No one knows the future, but we can look at countries where socialized medicine is used today. 

These health care systems are in chaos!  For example:

Obama: Does he resent Cambridge Cops?

Does the president of the United States have a long-standing grudge against Cambridge Police that goes back to his college days?

Maybe.  Who knows what is in a man’s mind?  But the facts seem to cast doubt on Obama.   POTUS was the recipient of 17 parking tickets while he was a student at Harvard.  He paid all but 15 of them.  Here’s the story…. (CLICK ON THIS LINK)

The question that started the entire brouhaha was the last question in the prime-time news conference on Health Care.  It was later reported that the question was carefully staged by Obama.  His answer was thought out before hand.

Does Obama hold a grudge?  One thing is for sure: Obama was a scofflaw for more than a decade until the media embarrassed him to pay up.
