    Obama's Regulatory Czar has resigned: Cass Sunstein, administrator of the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the White House Office of Management and Budget, will return later this month to his previous post at Harvard Law School, the White House will announce Friday. Obama said of Sunstein: “For the last three and a half years, Cass Sunstein has helped drive a series of historic accomplishments on behalf of the American people." Accomplishments? During the last 3+ years Obama and his "regulatory czar" have issued 106 new major regulations (as of March 2012). ...at a cost of more than...

    — One Saturday last fall, President Obama interrupted a White House strategy meeting to raise an issue not on the agenda. He declared, aides recalled, that the administration needed to more aggressively use executive power to govern in the face of Congressional obstructionism. -snip- But increasingly in recent months, the administration has been seeking ways to act without Congress. Branding its unilateral efforts “We Can’t Wait,” a slogan that aides said Mr. Obama coined at that strategy meeting, the White House has rolled out dozens of new policies — on creating jobs for veterans, preventing drug shortages, raising fuel economy...

    Republicans vote to defund Obama's 'czars' By Andrew Restuccia - 02/17/11 07:01 PM ET The House GOP approved an amendment to a government-spending bill that would block funding for the Obama administration’s so-called policy "czars,” appointed advisers to the president that have been much-criticized by Republicans. The vote was 249-171. The amendment, offered by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), specifically targets Obama’s “climate czar” by blocking funding for the assistant to the president for energy and climate change, the position's official title. The amendment would block funding for the 'czars' through the end of the fiscal year, when the spending bill...

    Republicans will have President Barack Obama’s czars and his use of regulatory powers to circumvent congressional inaction on issues such as cap and trade in GOP crosshairs if the party takes control in January. Since taking office, Obama has named more than 30 czars (though the exact number is hard to pin down) without Senate confirmation and congressional oversight, and together they hold power over everything from the environment and bank bailouts to the auto industry. The president’s practice of naming czars has garnered criticism from members of his own party, such as the late West Virginia Democrat Sen. Robert...

    New York is a fiscal basket case. One major reason: the black hole of pension fund promises made to government workers by pliant politicians always eager to serve the public employee unions. These promises are so munificent that they amount to giveaways that dwarf Democratic smear talking points such as the bridge to nowhere. Compounding the fiscal hole facing many state and local governments is the fact that the pension funds advanced by taxpayers have been invested poorly. Often these investment decisions were made by firms who were more attuned to politics than investing principles. Case in point is the...

It also includes broad powers of enforcement against schools or individuals who resist this, including lawsuits, awarding of attorneys fees, loss of federal funds to the school district, and assorted remedies tied to other federal laws.

    Cass Sunstein wants the government to "cognitively infiltrate" anti-government groups Cass Sunstein has long been one of Barack Obama's closest confidants.  Often mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein is currently Obama's head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for "overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs."  In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-"independent" advocates to "cognitively infiltrate" online groups and websites -- as well as other activist groups --...

    In a lengthy academic paper , President Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, argued the U.S. government should ban "conspiracy theorizing." Among the beliefs Sunstein would ban is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud. Sunstein also recommended the government send agents to infiltrate "extremists who supply conspiracy theories" to disrupt the efforts of the "extremists" to propagate their theories. In a 2008 Harvard law paper, "Conspiracy Theories," Sunstein and co-author Adrian Vermeule, a Harvard law professor, ask, "What can government do about conspiracy theories?" "We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might...

    If our government does end up in control of the Internet, they could potentially restrict it as a medium of dissent, blocking the ability to communicate, educate, and organize. Glenn Beck and I exposed how radical White House Internet czar Susan Crawford was in 2009 and she resigned. Unfortunately, in 2010 her former colleagues appear undaunted in their efforts to take over the Internet. Despite the fact that the Federal Communications Commission’s claims to have jurisdiction in this area were revealed to be extremely flimsy just last week, the FCC is moving ahead with proposed "Open Internet" rules, which would...

  • Another Call for Kevin Jennings Ouster as "Safe Schools Czar"

    … President Obama is under fire for moving too slowly to champion homosexual rights, in the view of leading voices on the left. The appointment of a “czar” like Kevin Jennings is one way in which President Obama can ensure the influence of homosexual-rights-activists in important places – like our nation’s public schools – without the president’s having to pass a law, or even hold a Congressional hearing, both of which might generate public attention and opposition. That Jennings’ influence in the Department of Education might promote the early or inappropriate sexualization of children is apparently not as important as...

    Kevin Jennings, President Obama's "safe schools czar," is president of the board of the Tectonic Theater Project, which created "The Laramie Project," a play about the 1998 murder of University of Wyoming homosexual Matthew Shepard that condemns traditional biblical views on homosexuality as hateful and bigoted. The play, performed by dozens of colleges and high schools around the nation, ridicules a Baptist minister for preaching the biblical perspective on homosexuality as a sin. The pastor's expression of hope that Shepard repented of his sins before dying is described as hateful. A Mormon leader who notes that "God has set boundaries"...

    Defenders of “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings like to dismiss as insignificant the fact that he failed to report his student Brewster’s sexual activity with an adult male met at a Boston bus station. They don’t defend it by saying “it’s all about love,” but they do get hung up on the boy's age. Brewster was 16 at the time, and therefore at the legal age of consent in Massachusetts. (Jennings, however, also referred to the boy as 15 … so by his own frame of reference he should have done something.) Jennings had no qualms about this sexual relationship...

    January 04, 2010, 0:00 a.m. Will the American People Finally Revolt?Federal indulgence and incompetence are too vast to catalogue. By Deroy Murdock Where is Nelson Mandela when we need him? In an especially memorable moment in Clint Eastwood’s fine new film Invictus, South Africa’s first black president (exquisitely portrayed by Morgan Freeman) inspects his first official paycheck. “This is terrible,” Mandela says. He decides he earns too much money and subsequently donates a third of his salary to charity. Thus was born the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. Mandela’s humility and fiscal restraint would be as exotic in the nation’s...
  • To Little Green Snotballs: Credible Evidence of Kevin Jennings' Malfeasance

    MediaMatters' useful idiots continue to deny damning evidence of “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings’ history of malfeasance. They never deal with the evidence presented, but fall back on name-calling. MassResistance -- and now Gateway Pundit -- are tagged bigoted, homophobic, hate group, not credible, etc. We challenge Little Green Snotballs to actually look at the evidence and tell us what exactly is not credible. The only explanation of Little Green Snotball’s denial defense of Jennings and GLSEN is that he himself sees nothing wrong with any of these activities, or instructing minor children how to join in.

    Jennings is a very angry man -- not an appropriate temperament for a Department of Education official. Here is Kevin Jennings in his own words, reacting to a letter from a cousin (reprimanding him for his "immoral" homosexuality and GLSEN activities). From Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son (2006, Epilogue, pp. 260-262): "I’m not the evil one here. And neither is anyone associated with GLSEN. So let’s talk about moral values. It says in I John 4:20, “If a man says he loves God, and hates his brother, he is a liar.” Four out of five LGBT students are physically, sexually, or...

    Kevin Jennings, Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” is proud of his anger. We’ve already noted his membership in that very angry group, ACT/UP (and his recent funding of a pornographic exhibit celebrating ACT/UP at Harvard). So it's not surprising that he wrote of his profound anger at that time in his memoir, Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son (2006). He also wrote of the effect a youth’s suicide on him, as he was taking his group GLSEN national (in the mid-1990s). He fantasized about waterboarding anyone who disagreed with his plan to “queer” the schools: “I started thinking that I needed to view...
