Are We Ruled by Secularist Czars?

President Barack Obama has appointed more Czars than Imperial Russia had in a thousand years. They probably could not be confirmed by the Senate, so Obama fixed it so that they evade Senate confirmation questioning. And they are a real bunch of weirdos. His Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, whose official title is Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote a book in which he declared that the government "owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone's permission." That may sound like science fiction to you, but, according the Washington Post, taxpayers are already financing a $300,000 federal government grant at a Pittsburgh hospital to take organs from emergency room patients. Did the patients really give informed consent? We don't know. Is the government going to consider seriously ill people, not as patients, but as organ donors?

President Obama appointed John Holdren his Science Czar. His official title is Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Mr. Holdren has written in support of so-called green abortions. Do you know what green abortions are? According to a textbook written by Czar Holdren, it includes involuntary birth control measures and forced sterilization, which would be necessary because of "climate change" predictions. This book was co-authored by the discredited population-control alarmist Paul Ehrlich.

Obama's health czar, Donald Berwick, who is the top administrator over Medicare and Medicaid, exercising life-and-death powers, has said that "health care is by definition redistributional," and that Britain's socialized medicine system is "a global treasure" and he "loves it."
