Appointment Watch: Spriggs and Berrien

  • On: 09/01/2009 09:22:27
  • In: Appointments

  • The mainstream media continue to ignore President Obama’s appointment of bizarre personnel to run the government. Personnel is policy. That being the case the American people need to know about these appointments. This week we look another couple of Obama appointees. These are not isolated incidents or an occasional bad apple. These folks are representative of the appointments he is making with little or no push back from the Senate during the confirmation process.

    William E. Spriggs, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Policy

    • Spriggs believes that in the U.S. “everything is racial.”
    • Spriggs supports paying reparations to African countries.
    • Spriggs often expresses disappointment that Black immigrants do not feel sufficiently victimized.
    • Spriggs was nominated on June 9, 2009 and his nomination is pending in committee.

    Arturo Valenzuela, Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs

    • Valenzuela has been an apologist for corrupt dictators.
    • Valenzuela has stated that Hugo Chavez, “wasn’t that bad an hombre.”
    • Valenzuela’s former colleague stated that he had “made a career of rising up the bureaucratic ladder while leaving a string of questionable judgments in his wake.”
    • Valenzuela was nominated on June 8, 2009 and his nomination is pending before the full Senate.

    These are just a sample of the people President Obama is placing 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
