|Ethical shortcomings mark Obama’s administration
Wednesday, 09 December 2009 00:00
A short time ago we celebrated Halloween with all the scary witches, ghosts and goblins. Now when you look at the Obama Administration with all the radicals and unethical personnel he has implemented to serve with him you must wonder if we won’t have Halloween every day for the next three years at least.
Let me list just a few and see if you will be as scared as I am as to where they might take us.
Safe schools czar Kevin Jennings failed to oppose homosexual man-boy relationships and who also believes that sexual orientation lessons should begin in kindergarten. Science czar John Holdren has written, without objection, that laws requiring compulsory abortion could be sustained under the existing Constitution.
Tom Daschle had to withdraw because of a failure to pay his taxes ($140,000 taxes and interest). He was Mr. Obama’s first nominee for secretary for Health and Human Services. The Senate eventually confirmed the president’s subsequent nominee to head HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, but only after she corrected three years of tax returns and paid $7,000 in back taxes for “unintentional errors.” Treasury secretary Timothy F. Geithner was confirmed only after extended questioning about irregularities in his tax records that surfaced during the nomination process. He is now trying to lead the U.S. economy out of its doldrums with — figuatively — one arm tied behind his back.
When Obama’s administration is manned by so many radicals with ethical shortcomings, I think it’s time to broadcast the dishonor roll so I’ll list a few more.
Van Jones. The president brought him into the White House to be the green jobs czar. Unfortunately, Mr. Jones has a radical left resume that includes support for the convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal. He was forced to resign when the folks found out how far out there the man really is.
Carol Browner. Obama appointed her as director of the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy. Formerly, Ms. Browner was a leader in the Commission for a Sustainable World Society, a group that calls for “global governance.” It is an arm of Socialist International organization.
Harold Koh. Mr. Koh is an advocate of the dangerous notion of “transnationalism,” which would elevate foreign law above the U.S. Constitution. He was barely approved to be the chief legal counsel for the State Department and has endorsed a “global regulatory” regime to outlaw firearms.
Ezekiel Emanuel. This key White House advisor on health policy has written that “allocation [of medical care] by age is not discrimination” and that “services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic, and should not be guaranteed.”
Louis Butler. This new nominee for a federal district judgeship in Wisconsin is a proponent of the theory that manufacturers should be forced to pay damage awards in lawsuits even if there is no evidence that their products made anybody sick.
This list could go on and on for as we all know, in the beginning, there was the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, a fire-breathing Chicago preacher who believes America is a bad place. Obama was a friend and member of his church for 20 years. Is it any wonder Obama and these radical ideas are part of his very being?
Radical Catholic priest Michael Pfleger was also part of the Obama neighborhood gang. This is the guy who mocked Hillary Clinton, portraying her was a white woman of entitlement.
And of course we can’t forget Bill Ayers, an acquaintance of Obama’s in Chicago and whose kids attended the same school while Obama lived in Chicago. Ayers, a former member of the Weather Underground, is unrepentant to this day about the group’s violent activities back in the 1960s. He is also a bosom buddy of the dictator Hugo Chavez.
With a list like this, which is very minimal, I hope you can see why I feel we are going to have Halloween every day!
