Obama's First Fifteen Recess Appointees - The List. [1st Update.]

“I simply cannot allow partisan politics to stand in the way of the basic functioning of government,” said Obama.


“The U.S. Senate rejected this highly controversial and partisan nominee, and once again the administration showed that it had little respect for the time honored constitutional roles and procedures of Congress,” McCain said in a statement.

These people are not just democrats.

These people are not just Liberals.

These people are not just progressives.

These people are dangerous.

Over the next day or so, I’ll research the rest of these folks and add it to the list in place here on the diary entry.  Any assistance you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

We all know about the lovely and talented Craig Becker, so we’ll just put a purple t-shirt on the gent, along with a bloodied baseball bat in his hands and go forward.

Let’s get started, shall we ?


Ms. Jill Long Thompson, Indiana – Failed Gubernatorial Candidate.

She served under President Bill Clinton (no, not ‘that way’ – get your mind out of the gutter) as Under Secretary Of Agriculture For Rural Development.

Ran for Governor of Indiana in the ’08 election, endorsed by SEIU, along with other unions and Emily’s List.

Lost by 17 points.


Oh look…… Mr. Islam “Isi” Siddiqui……. I wonder if……. Nah……


While Siddiqui was at CropLife, the company took part closed-door negotiations with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Office of Management and Budget to find ways to permit pesticide testing in children.


Monetary campaign donations to: Barack Obama, John Kerry, Keith Ellison, Croplife America Political Action Committee, Christopher Van Hollen, Progressive Patriots Fund, Hillary Clinton, Andre Carson, Neil Dhillon, Al Gore, Mike Honda, Tom Daschle, Charles Spittal Robb.


Chai Fedlblum – Gay Rights activist.


Lead attorney for The Americans with Disabilities Act ; Georgetown University Professor.

Easier this way……. If You Hate America, You Have A Lawyer — Chai Feldblum.


Feldblum isn’t known by most Americans but her career experience and employers make her a sort of general counsel to the Forces of Darkness. She has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign Fund and she founded something called the Moral Values Project, a “gender equity” group meant to sound like something conservative.


Michael Mundaca – International Tax Lobbyist and another Georgetown Professor.


Professor Mundaca participated in the negotiation of U.S. income tax treaties, representing the United States in international tax forums, including the OECD, and in discussions with the European Union.

OECD = One-world government…… The Organization For Economic Co-operation And Development – http://www.oecd.org


Rafael Borras – Career politician with the attitude that government is the end-all and everything to everyone.

“If we hire contract workers, we should have a clear understanding of what they’re going to do to contribute to the mission,” Borras said during his confirmation hearing. “I believe that it’s very, very important to ensure that we don’t have contract workers who are performing either inherently governmental or nearly governmental functions.”

Oh good Lord, here we go with taxes again.

During Borras’ nomination hearing, Ranking Member Susan Collins (R-Maine) questioned him about two years in which he did not pay the full amount he owed in taxes. Collins has said that Borras’ apparent inattention to detail in his personal affairs could indicate similar failings in his professional work and that his qualifications don’t meet the statutory requirements for the position.


Wall Street Darlin’ Jeffrey Goldstein – The appearance of a major conflict of interest.


Just click on the link and read it all…… Unreal.


Jacqueline Berrien – NAACP Attorney, Social Justice Advocate.


Berrien has been a Program Officer in the Governance and Civil Society Unit of the Ford Foundation’s Peace and Social Justice Program since November 2001.

You have two choices when you hear the words “Social Justice” used in a sentence involving a sitting government body…… Run away as fast and as far as you can, or fight it with every single fiber in your being, maybe until your last breath.


P. David Lopez – Attorney – Thirteen Years In EEOC.

Last position — Was Supervisory Trial Attorney in Phoenix Arizona.


While in Phoenix, Lopez tried a case against GoDaddy.com, leading to a $242,000 jury verdict against the software company for discriminating against a Muslim employee. He also worked on a 2003 consent decree with the NBA’s Phoenix Suns, which paid $104,000 to three women who claimed that they were unfairly denied spots on an entertainment troupe.


Victoria Lipnic – Attorney with Seyfarth Shaw LLP (USA & Belgium).


As a Republican, Lipnic’s confirmation to the EEOC would fulfill the requirement that at least two of the agency’s five commissioners do not belong to the president’s political party.  Constance Barker, whose term as an EEOC commissioner expires in 2011, is the other Republican member.

Just a hunch here……. R.I.N.O. attorney,or she wouldn’t have even been considered, let alone appointed.

John McCain, Olympia Snow, Lindsey Graham and many others are Republicans too.

Doesn’t make ’em right for the positions they’re in though.


Francisco J. Sanchez – Attorney – Clinton Administration Bureaucrat.

Former Chairman of the National Hispanic Leadership Council.


Sanchez served as a senior advisor to Commerce Secretary Locke on international trade issues. He also served as the Assistant Secretary for Aviation and International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Transportation during the Clinton administration, where he developed aviation policy and oversaw international negotiations. Sanchez had previously served in the White House as a Special Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff to the Special Envoy to the Americas, Kenneth MacKay, where he focused on economic integration and democracy issues throughout the Western Hemisphere. He began his career in government working as Director of Florida’s Caribbean Basin Initiative Program for then Governor Bob Graham.
