Just the Name “Czars” is Alarming!

Special Report on President Obama’s 45 Czars

New Czars Exercise Unprecedented Control over Government Policies and Programs While Operating Under a “Veil of Secrecy”

Washington, DC — October 10, 2011

Judicial Watch, the public interest organization that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released “President Obama’s Czars,” a special report on the President’s 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 Watch’s extensive investigation exhaustively documents these czar appointments and details the control these czars exercise over government operations.

From the report’s 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 Watch’s website

  • Czars appointees have seized unprecedented control over major aspects of government policy and programs. In some instances, unconfirmed czars have authority, in seeming violation of the U.S. Constitution, over certain Senate-confirmed officers.
  • A number of the czars have been linked to scandals, thefts and kickbacks, flagrant and offensive statements, conflicts of interest, and radical leftist political ideologies and policies.

“Barack Obama’s 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.”

Controversial Czars and their descriptions begins on page 14 with Special Adviser Czar Valerie Jarrett.  Did you know she enjoyed the title of Czar?

Controversial Czars in the Obama Administration

Since numerous presidential czars avoid Senate confirmation, they also avoid the Senate’s valuable vetting process. The procedure of confirming potential appointments is a necessary layer of protection and accountability, because it helps to ensure against controversial appointments and validates that the nominee is competent and qualified.†

Diversity Czar:   Mark Lloyd

Health Reform Czar:   Nancy-Ann DeParle

Medicare/Healthcare Czar:   Dr. Donald Berwick

Science Czar:   John Holdren

  1. I thought Autism Czar was odd until I came across the ones Bridgette put in italics!!!!

    Behavioral Czar (whose behavior? Poopstockers?)
    Disinformation Czar (most important to Barry)
    Income Redistribution Czar (hiding in plain sight)
    Radio-Internet Fairness Czar (whose idea of “fairness?”)
    Land Use Czar (whose land?)
    Voting List Czar (to ensure all illegals and felons are listed)
    Ethics Czar (that one won’t be necessary, fo shizzle. No ethics needed.)

  2. info@judicialwatch.org

    When do we begin investigations…………….
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Of President Obama’s and Nancy Pelosi’s felonious certification of Natural Born Citizen status?

    Of Barack Obama’s forged Selective Service Registration?

    Of Barack Obama’s (aka Barry Soetoro aka Harrison Bounell) use of stolen Social Security Numbers?

    These are all serious felonies, and are of a criminal nature, NEITHER political NOR race related, so DO NOT attempt to put this off as something other than criminal.

    If indeed you wish to be remembered in history, show us and future generations that you CAN truly be a honest and forceful gatekeeper. If patriots like US and institutions such as yours are to survive, we cannot allow this ursurption to continue. If you are waiting for the 2012 elections to erase his mess, you may be TOO LATE.

    You know exactly who WE are, and exactly what WE are talking about. You know the correct definition of NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, so PLEASE do not feign ignorance or quote liberal talking points, or mumble of certificates posted on this or that website.

    Obama was VETTED by NO ONE !!! Politicians and judges are TOO chicken-chit to do or say anything. They NEED to grow a spine and a pair of gonads.

    Now YOU know where WE stand.

    WHERE standeth YOU ??

  3. I just emailed this to them at JW in hopes of getting them po’d
    enough to take some action, without getting them to po’d at me.

    Excerpt:

    “Then came those damned birthers:

    Enter a class of self-appointed investigative reporters who would simply not let it go until they got to the bottom of it all. Who this man was, where he came from, what he really had in store for America and what to do about it … these were questions some simply had to find an answer for, and they did.

    * Obama’s DNC Certifications: FRAUD
    * his first birth certificate (COLB): FRAUD
    * his second birth certificate (COLB): FRAUD
    * his third birth certificate (long form): FRAUD
    * his childhood records: GONE
    * his adoption records: GONE
    * his college records: GONE
    * his travel records: GONE
    * his Social Security number(s): FRAUD
    * his story – won’t add up
    * his friends – crooks, thugs and socialists
    * even his claim to be a “black man” is false”

    […]

    “Quoting directly from the document:

    “An undisclosed number of American Veterans and former service members have come together to prepare and present this Call-to-Action on behalf of the U.S. Constitution, the Republic, the Rule of Law and equal justice for all freedom loving citizens of the United States of America. Acting together as one, via The Veteran Defenders of America, co-sponsored by civilian patriot group The United States Patriots Union, LLC – we issue the following CALL for peaceful disobedience.”

    The document cites numerous violations of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and more than 60 criminal acts by the Obama administration and members of Congress.

    The Veteran Defenders are also calling for “the immediate and unconditional orderly resignation of Barack Obama, Joe Biden and the entire Obama Cabinet,” among others, and a nationwide patriot March on D.C. on Nov. 11, 2011 – Veterans Day, to demand the immediate restoration of our constitutional republic.

    The exploited kids involved in the Democratic Socialist March on Wall Street are clueless. Coincidentally, the Democratic Socialists are holding their annual convention in D.C. beginning Nov. 11, in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Vienna, Va.”

    October 9, 2011

    Excerpt:

    “Barack Obama may have 15 months left in his first term, but his supporters in Congress are already preparing for the day he’ll be an ex-president by introducing legislation that will allow him to keep his personal and presidential documents secret.

    According to Judicial Watch, the Washington-based government corruption fighting organization, the proposal by Rep. Edolphus Towns of New York’s 10th District is “an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama.”
