Appointment Watch: Holdren and Sims

Lat time I checked in with Bill Wilson for Americans for Limited Government, he wrote about three Obama appointments. Time for two more:

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.

John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (Science Czar)

Since the 1960’s Holdren has advocated draconian practices in order the control the worlds’ population. In 1969 he wrote “If population control measures are not initiated immediately …technology… will not fend off the misery to come.” Holdren further states, “Some form of ecocatastrophe…seems almost certain…before the end of the [20th] century.”  To ward off this disaster that never happened Holdren prescribed the following:

  • Laws requiring compulsory abortion.
  • Requiring pregnant single women to marry or abort the child.
  • Adding sterilant to drinking water or staple foods. In a burst of humanity however Holdren wants to be sure that the sterilant would not harm pets.
  • Adjusting tax laws to favor single people, working wives, and small families.
  • Taxes on luxury baby good and toys.
  • Limitation of educational benefits to two children per family.

On March 4th 2009 the Senate confirmed Mr. Holdren without one dissenting vote.
Ron Sims, Deputy Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

Before this appointment Mr. Sims had been County Executive in King County (Seattle) washington. The following are a couple of the low points of his record in that position.

  • On Sims’ watch, the medical examiner’s office was run unprofessionally and disrespectfully. Bodies lay on the floor, crude language and gestures were common, harmful chemicals were poured down the drain illegally, a body was lost, and a weekly contest to pick the most disgusting photo of the dead was held.
  • Ron Sims pushed a three-year project to update county payroll and human resources and accounting systems. Unqualified people ran the project, $39 million was wasted, and the project failed. After three years, the payroll and human resources system had only been installed at departments that employed one-third of county employees and the accounting system had not been installed. While only a fraction of the project was completed, the entire budget was spent.

On May 6, 2009 the Senate confirmed Mr. Sims without one dissenting vote.

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

  1. Simply Splendid!

    Now I’ll explain that last remark… When my grandmother was getting up in years with all her ailments to annoy her, when ever someone asked her how she felt her response was, Simply Splendid. It accomplished a couple of things; she was able to avoid going on about how this, that or the other didn’t feel good, didn’t work or hurt so bad she couldn’t enjoy life. It moved the conversation along to the next natural point, what do you really want to talk about that doesn’t involve pain or death?

    Our president has surrounded himself with like minded individuals who will do everything they can to destroy the things which make America worth while. Rather than answer my complaints, let’s just say they are Simply Splendid.

  2. I think there was a time when people would have been concerned about the “Holdrens” which are being appointed to government positions.
    Maybe not.
    One thing for sure, no one seems overly concerned about it now.
    Holdren’s ideas should be scaring the crap out of us.

    In your book recommendations you list “Liberal Fascism”.
    I understand Ayn Rand’s books have increased in sales. I hope the red book with the yellow smiley face increases in sales.
