What is it with all these Czars? After all, Isn’t this America?
Do we really need a “Health Care Czar” when we already have a confirmed Secretary of Health and Human Services?
Do we really need an “Energy Czar” when we already have a confirmed head of the EPA?
Do we really need an “Urban Czar” when we already have a confirmed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development?
To me, the word “Czar” conjures up images of Russian dictators. I did some research on the word and discovered that it is actually worse than I thought! “Czar,” it turns out, is short for the word “Caesar,” which means emperor. Some of the dictionary definitions for “czar” include:
“a male monarch or emperor (especially of Russia)”
“a person with unlimited power or authority”
“a person having great power; an autocrat”
That last word “autocrat” intrigued me, so I looked it up:
1. A ruler having unlimited power; a despot. 2. A person with unlimited power or authority (thefreedictionary.com)
Here is the definition of a “despot“:
1. A ruler with absolute power. 2. A person who wields power oppressively; a tyrant.
Finally, the definition of a “tyrant“:
1. An absolute ruler who governs without restrictions. 2. A ruler who exercises power in a harsh, cruel manner.
In her excellent book Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies, best-selling author Michelle Malkin maintains that the appointment of all these czars is Obama’s way of putting his cronies into power and circumventing the oversight of Congress.
The whole purpose of having three branches of government is to have a system of checks and balances in order to prevent one branch of government from obtaining too much power and thereby posing a threat to our liberty. Could it be that Obama, who in my opinion has already proven himself to be a staunch enemy of the Constitution (that he took an oath to defend), is trying to amass tyrannical power?
You bet he is! Be afraid, be very afraid!
I am continually amazed at Obama’s flagrant and insolent audacity when it comes to his lies and corruption, but even more amazed at the willingness of the American news media to allow this to go unchallenged. But despite the media’s failure to give it proper coverage, there is a grassroot’s movement in this country to take our nation back from the corrupt politicians.
The second American Revolution has begun! Get on board before it is too late!
Let’s not forget that the president, and Congress, have all taken oaths to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Let’s not forget that these men and women, who by their actions seem to be holding themselves up as our masters, are in reality public servants.
“Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.” Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy (1922-1943)
Fascism is of course government working hand in glove with big business, often accompanied by “belligerent nationalism.” We’ve seen a little of that in the last eight years, haven’t we? Communism believes in “each according to his need, each according to his ability”, and a centrally controlled, planned economy, where prices, and wages are set by government dictate. What would you call a banking cartel/system that has a monopoly on money creation, artificially “sets” interest rates, and works closely with government, in a symbiotic relationship, to provide for the often questionable needs of politicians, while lining its own pockets? Dr. James Glenn, July 7, 2009
Fascism is always sold as necessity in the name of the public good. (See Fascism Has a New Face.)
