During the 2008 Presidential campaign Barack Obama told audiences, 'Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself.'
OK, we will.
And that is precisely the problem with Obama.
John Holdren, science czar, advocates for population control using the most extreme measures, such as mandating the number of children Americans can have. He is also a proponent of 'de-developing' the United States, sending its agricultural practices and technology back to the 19th century. Holdren has also suggested that infants and chronically ill elderly do not fit his definition of 'human,' and therefore can be expendable.
Cass Sunstein, regulatory czar and Harvard law professor, believes that animals should have the right to legal representation. If you try to get rid of rats in your home, a 'concerned citizen' could bring a lawsuit, with the rat as the plaintiff, to sue you for endangering a species. He also believes that if bloggers post something that turns out to be false, they should be prosecuted. In short, Sunstein is a Leftwing moonbat with Fascist leanings. Remember, Obama said to judge him by the people around him.
Ezekiel Emanuel, healthcare czar, believes in using cost-benefit and comparative-benefit analysis to allocate healthcare resources. This means the fewer years you have left to live, the less cost-effective it is to treat you. Thus, most of those resources should be diverted from the elderly to younger people. This is the 'rationing' portion of ObamaCare that many of us have warned about. And this will be done even without the so-called 'public option,' which is not really what the debate about government control of healthcare is about in the first place. Even without the public option, the provision for rationing is inherent in the provisions of the bill, thanks to advisers such as Emanuel.
Van Jones, green jobs czar, is perhaps the most extremist of the extreme in the entire lot. As a self-avowed, self-identified Communist, Jones abhors liberty, the Constitution, the American way of life, and seeks to change it from top to bottom. Here is more on Van Jones.
Mark Loyd, FCC 'diversity czar,' supports Communist Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and believes that what Chavez did to squelch free speech in the media and seize the means of communication is a good model for the United States. His plan is to silence conservative talk radio by forcing ownership to change hands to minorities and by implementing a fee structure for licensing that will put most private broadcasters out of business. At that point, Loyd would make PBS, or NPR on the radio, the most powerful forces in broadcasting--controlled by the government, of course.
And we thought Bill Ayres, Reverend Wright, Father Flager, Tony Rezko were bad influences....Obama actually pays the above mentioned people.
Judge Obama by the people who surround him? Well Obama has no regard for human life, he is a Communist sympathizer, and he hates free speech. Now it turns out Van Jones is a 9/11 Truther. WOW!
He asked us to judge him. I did.

What would happen if someone decided to boil my life down to a single paragraph?
Opened his christmas gifts early one year and failed to wrap them again properly. He spoiled Christmas that year for many of his family. Why would someone do such a thng?! Clearly this indivual should not be trusted by friends or family.
Served with distinction in USN during the years of 1983 to 1987. Recieved numerous medals and commendations. Additional duties involved being a part of his ships "Snoopy team", Chart Petty officer, Secret publications custodian and ASROC rover.
Posting one paragraph with a few touch points does not begin to honestly touch on the lives of any of the indivduals you posted.
Lets take Van jones for instance. Here are some other items of interest.
In 2008, Time magazine named Jones one of its "Environmental Heroes." Fast Company called him one of the "12 Most Creative Minds of 2008."
In 2004, Jones was one of "100 notable Americans" who signed a "911 Truth Statement" from 911Truth.org. The petition demanded an investigation of "unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."
These are just two small items, there plenty more facts out there for everyone to read. I'm not posting any of this to defend or admonish any of the persons involved, just to remind everyone that a parapraph does not a life make.
