  • In: Appointments

  • Very little notice is being given in the national media to the quality of the people President Obama is appointing to run the federal bureaucracies. Here are three examples:

    Cathy Zoi, Assistant Secretary of Energy for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

    • In order to enforce her view of how energy efficient your home should be Ms. Zoi advocates “swat teams,” go into neighborhoods and retrofit every single every single house and every single business on main street.
    • Ms. Zoi believes the earth’s population has ten years to mend its ways, or the earth will be in irreversible decline, in others words “the end is near.”
    • Ms. Zoi was confirmed on June 19.

    Cass Sunstein, Nominee for Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

    • This position is known in the government as the Regulatory Czar. Government wide all regulations from the executive branch must pass through this office.
    • Mr. Sunstein thinks animals have the same rights as people. He believes they ought to be able to go to court to enforce these rights.
    • People should be careful before evicting a rat from their home in Mr. Sunsteins view. They may not have the legal right to do so.
    • Sunstein has a wide array of bizarre views.

    Arturo Valenzuela, Nominee for Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs.

    • In this position Mr. Valenzuela will oversee American foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere.
    • Mr. Valenzuela has noted that in his view Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s dictator “wasn’t that bad … an hombre.”
    • He defended Chavez’s destruction of a free press.
    • Mr. Valenzuela claims that violence is not a major issue in Mexico.

    These are just a sample of the people President Obama is trying to place in positions of power within his Administration. If you want more information on these three and many others, please visit: http://www.getliberty.org/content.asp?pl=187&contentid=187
