Media’s Czars

They call them Obama’s Czars. Like Holdren, the Science Czar or Herb Allison, TARP Czar.  What’s telling is, Obama isn’t technically naming Czars. What’s disconcerting is, it’s Media who’s naming them, Czars.

Take Adolfo Carrion, identified as the White House Office on Urban Policy, named by Media as Urban Czar, or the Special Envoy for the Middle East, the Middle East Czar, George Mitchell. These aren’t Senate blessed appointments, rather appointments made at the whim of a president more familiar with Community Organization than Business Management. I previously identified 37 Czars whose power Media acknowledged.

It’s telling that Obama is using the power of his office to make appointments to positions he creates. He’s not the first, just the most prolific. Someone with his background would be expected to create positions. The power of the positions lie in the power of the man overseeing Media’s Czars to control massive amounts of micromanagement that have nothing to do with the votes, voices or vision of the people of the United States of America.

I can appreciate the importance Obama puts into getting others to do his dirty work. The idea is simple, one Georgie didn’t quite get. (Georgie had a war, the Iraqi War. [I voted for him, I can call him that.] That was his war. The 43rd President lacked the ability to make that an American War, something We, the People could get behind.) Georgie lacked the verbal adroitness that Obama mesmerizes the masses with. He [Georgie] wasn’t a community organizer.  Simply put: to ensure success of a project, instill a sense of ownership in others who you want to do the work. Obama has done that, like a good community organizer would. (Check the history books, for others more famous who have left their soporific organizational mark.) Problem is, our Country doesn’t need to be organized so much as it needs returning to the ideals our Forefathers set in motion.

Obama doesn’t appoint Czars. He appoints people to positions he creates, at his pleasure, at his whim, outside the arm of the American People.

Media names them czars.

We can’t vote them out. We can’t talk to them. They don’t have to listen to us, or even pretend to care about our insights or objections. They bring US Taxation without Representation.

Back in his day, Andrew Jackson spoke against what he dubbed a banking Czar. He didn’t want the Bank of the United States of America, controlled by who he named a Czar, to enslave Americans by controlling their money in the form of paper. He (Jackson) wanted currency you could “sink your teeth into.” In the long run, Jackson lost. (The Bank of the United States eventually, indirectly, gave way to the Federal Reserve, same thing.) Point is, Jackson identified as Czar, a banker with  influential power over the people of US.

Reagan is said to have had three czars. (I found one, the Drug Czar.) It was Congress who, in 1982, enacted law that provided for another layer of bureaucracy within the Executive Branch of US Government. Media named him the Drug Czar. “The so-called ‘drug Czar’ provision was enacted hastily without thoughtful debate and without benefit of any hearings.” Reagan, as it’s told, didn’t like it (the appointment of a position untouched by representation of the people).

Okay, so Congress made a provision for Executive appointments. Considering the complaints against the 43rd President, against whom Media named a dozen, it is significant that Media puts names to twenty nine Czars, against the 44th President.

Hiding in plain sight of US, We, the People of the United States, are the Executive appointments of dozens of people who Media has named, Czar.  A czar by any other name is a person who wields power. They are answerable not to We, the People of the United States, rather to the good Community Organizer. We pay their salaries. We have no say in what they do, nor do We have access to what they know.

We pay for the Czars, generous salaries while unemployment rises. We pay not only salaries, but suffer their decisions handed to an Organizer, outside the Representation of Congress.

If you know anything about Community Organizing, you know this: Delegate, and let the delegates do what they do, and don’t micromanage. Look at Obama’s Executive Appointees.  Media has. That’s why they’re called Czars.

    Great article Hepsy.The number of current czars,while troubling,is indeed a deliberate act to escape accountability and provide a layer of cover for what is yet to come.I have been encouraged lately by the number of democrats coming out and expressing their dissatisfaction with the administrations actions.We know have a puppet government running the whole thing while the congress remains as inept as they usually are.

      Hadn’t thought of it before, the transition to a puppet government, good point! We’ve grown so far from representative republic, haven’t we?
