Know Your Czars Part 1

     So, you've probably heard by now that the President of the United States has decided that he really doesn't need the silly "checks and balances" system that our founding fathers set up.  He has found a really simple way around that pesky legislative branch of our government. The CZAR!
The czar is appointed by the President, and only has to answer to the President.  They don't need to be confirmed.  They don't have to show up when congress asks them to.  They are in control of billions of our tax dollars, but are not accountable to us. Sweet little power grab- ain't it!
     I've been trying to find a single source with a listing of all of the President's current czars, but I am having no luck.  I have decided to try to find information on as many of them as I can ( so we can see the people who are running our country).
     So I present to you:


Part One
Energy/Environmental Czar: CAROL BROWNER (Democrat)

Basic Information:
  • DOB: 12-16-55 Born in Miami Florida
  • 1977 BA in English from the University of Florida
  • 1979 JD University of Florida College of Law
  • Occupation: Lawyer
  • Administrator of the EPA under President Clinton 1993-2001
Carol Browner is a member of three groups worth mentioning

  • -CITIZEN ACTION:consumer advocacy organization focused on environmentalism and socialized medicine.  It was destroyed by its participation in the 1997 money laundering scandal to funnel illegal contributions to the re-elect Ron Carey as president of the teamsters union.
  • -LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS: this is a left wing lobbying organization devoted to "shaping a pro environment congress and white house"
  • -CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS: left wing think tank started by Halerpin and Soros, aimed at "developing a long-term vision of a progressive America" and "providing a forum to generate new progressive ideas and policy proposals".  Spokespeople for this group include John Podesta, Eric Alterman, and Morton Halperin

     Ah unions, payoffs, money laundering...this administration sure is fun...and we've only just begun!
