It's time to take a closer look at the form and substance of the infamous Obama Czars, or should I say the infamous plethora of Obama Czars. To quote Sen. John McCain, "Obama has more Czars than the Romanovs". Funny but true. In fact there were 18 Romanov Czars from the years 1613 through 1917, when in 1917 the throne was abdicated by Czar Nicholas II. Nicholas II and his family were murdered by the Bolsheviks in 1918, spawning the takeover by the Bolsheviks and the dawn of Communism gone live.
Why the short Russian history lesson? Well, it's all about perspective and context. Think about it, over the course of 4 centuries the Russian empire had 18 Czars. How many Czars does the Obama monarchy have over the span of just 7 months? 32 Czars in the Obama monarchy, based on media reports in the attached article from Glenn Beck's website. In addition, Mr. Obama has said that he will create the position of Cyber Czar, and there have been media reports that there could be a Health Insurance Czar and a Copyright Czar. When and if those positions are filled, that would bring the total count to 35 Czars in the Obama monarchy. So this plethora of Obama Czars begs the question what are they up to and why so many?
Obama's Czars are not subject to congressional approval, oversight and do not answer to any constitutional authority. His Czars are pure and simple a blunt weapon to attack those who dare to disagree with his policies. The Obama monarchy's policy of disallowing and disapproving arguments against its policies has parallels to the both the former Czarist Russian monarchical empire and Stalinist Russia. Monarchs do not answer to a higher power and Stalinist Russia punished and demonized those who disagreed with their policies. Isn't that what Obama is doing to the Town Hall attendees who disagree with his health care reform bill by using his minions to label them Nazis? Isn't that what his so-called "Green" Czar, a character by the name of Mr.Van Jones, is doing with his unholy crusade against Glenn Beck.
This Mr. Van Jones, appointed by Mr. Obama and a self proclaimed communist and was jailed during the Rodney King riots, has been lobbying Glenn Beck's sponsors to boycott advertising on his show. Why is this Van Jones persecuting Glenn Beck? Because Van Jones just didn't like what Beck had to say about Obama or Jones. And Obama is not doing a single thing to stop Jones' assault on Glenn Beck.
There you have it. Obama taking a page out of both the Czarist and Communist regime playbooks. Build the Czarist monarchy and punish the malcontents if they don't go along or agree with his vision for the proletariat. BY THE WAY, DOES OBAMA HAVE ANY ACQUAINTANCES FROM HIS PAST WHO HAVEN'T PLOTTED AGAINST THE U.S. AND DONE JAIL TIME? JUST ASKING.
