    1. The concept of ‘checks and balances’ is viewed by Progressives as standing in the way of addressing every and any ‘social ill.’ It is of more than passing interesting that Progressives view of government is of the contrary of constitutional restrictions: powers must be centralized in an executive, and the bureaucrats that invest this type of government. “…the agencies comprising the bureaucracy reside within the executive branch of our national government, but their powers transcend the traditional boundaries of executive power to include both legislative and judicial functions, and these powers are often exercised in a manner that is largely independent of presidential control and altogether independent of political control.” The Birth of the Administrative State: Where It Came From and What It Means for Limited Government | The Heritage Foundation

    2. The White House hopes to avoid the “advice and consent” role of the Senate by naming Warren as “special advisor” to both the President and the Treasury Secretary. Better known in public parlance as czars, the first “special advisor” occurred when Woodrow Wilson appointed financier Bernard Baruch to head the War Industries Board, a position dubbed industry czar.

    Franklin Roosevelt created a dozen such czars during his presidency, and modern presidents since Richard Nixon have made increasing use of the position to place loyal, and at times controversial, supporters among career bureaucrats to ensure that the administration’s policies are carried out.

    With the recent addition of Warren and the Asian tarp czar, John Goss, the total number of current czars comes to 43. The large number of czars appointed by President Obama, particularly this early in his administration, led Senator McCain (R-AZ) to tweet last year that Barack Obama has more czars than the Romanovs, the Russian imperial family, ever did…. It is long past due for Congress to reassert its rightful role of “advise and consent” by demanding specific job information for each czar. If such information is withheld by the White House, or it turns out that the czar is in fact an “official” under the Appointments Clause, Congress should not hesitate to defund the agency.

    3. President Barack Obama wants to ramp-up Internet security with the establishment of a czar to oversee privacy. The administration plans a stronger legal effort to protect Internet privacy -- including new laws and creation of a new position to oversee the effort, people familiar with the situation tell The Wall Street Journal.

    Article II, Section 2, paragraph 2 of the United States Constitution:
    It appears to me that Congress has allowed the appointment of czars to be carried out without advise and consent. In other words, they already let the cat out of the bag!!!

    OK:

    Point 1. What a load of empty rhetoric this is. The entire paragraph is based on the assumption that the first sentence is factual, which it is clearly not.

    Point 2. You guys have a lot of fun pretending that the word "Czar" in it's current incarnation meaning "advisor" is the same as a Russian monarch. It would be funny if you didn't actually mean it to some extent. But, as it is, it's pitiful.

    Point 3. Who cares? A "Czar" is an ADVISORY position. They have no power.
