Not Quite a Vacation

I'd like to say I'll be on vacation the next three weeks, but instead I'll be fulfilling some military commitments. The results will be about the same insofar as there probably will be very little posting on my part. This may be good news for some and to those I say "you're welcome." To the remaining minority, I'll see you in three weeks.

Meet your Czars

Congratulations to all of those that made the calls to the White House, Representatives and Senators on forcing Van Jones to resign. Only problem, Obama never explained why this self proclaimed Communist and radical was selected as his Green Czar. Obama himself said, to learn about me; look at the people I surround myself with.

Did the FBI not do their job or does the President want this type of person on his staff, neither option is good.

Here are three more of the Czar’s your tax dollars are funding.

FCC Czar Mark Lloyd:

"It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.”

At a 2008 “media reform” conference sponsored by the George Soros-funded Free Press organization, Lloyd declared that the Marxist revolution in Venezuela under Chavez was “incredible” and “dramatic” but that the “property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled” against the would-be dictator and supported a coup against him. However, Lloyd said that Chavez wised up and “then started to take the media seriously…”

The implication of these remarks is that Chavez dealt with his opponents in the media by trying to control or silence them, and that Lloyd supports that strategy when dealing with opponents of revolutionary Marxism here in the U.S.\

In 2006 while at the liberal Center for American Progress Lloyd wrote a book entitled,
Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America. In the book he presents the idea the private broadcasters (private business) should pay a licensing [fee] which equals their total operating costs so that public broadcasting [stations] can spend the same on their operations as the private companies do. By doing so he hopes to improve the Corporation for Public Broadcasting currently at $400 Million for 2009.
Not only does he want to redistribute private profits, he wants to regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focus on “diverse views” (Progressive Views) and government activities. I am all for that when I see on PBS a conservative voice next to Bill Moyers. And when I hear a conservative voice on NRP or just voice on NRP that sounds excited with some passion.

Science Czar John Holdren

· “Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not;”
· “The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation's drinking water or in food…”
· “Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise…”
· People who "contribute to social deterioration" (i.e. undesirables) "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility" -- in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
· “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution”
· A transnational "Planetary Regime" should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans' lives -- using an armed international police force.

Regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein

“We ought to ban hunting, I suggest, if there isn’t a purpose other than sport and fun. That should be against the law. It’s time now.”

"Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives…Any animals that are entitled to bring suit would be represented by (human) counsel, who would owe guardian-like obligations and make decisions, subject to those obligations, on their clients' behalf."

Sunstein also argued in favor of “eliminating current practices such as greyhound racing, cosmetic testing, and meat eating, most controversially.”He concluded his Harvard speech by expressing his “more ambitious animating concern” that the current treatment of livestock and other animals should be considered “a form of unconscionable barbarity not the same as, but in many ways morally akin to, slavery and mass extermination of human beings.”

Your tax dollars hard at work.
