This blog is Part Three in a series. Before reading, you may want to go through the first two portions:

A Czar By Any Other Name Might as Well Be Boris or Natasha: Part Two
4) Regulatory Czar: Cass Sunstein: The man says that when people have too many choices, it troubles him. Oh really? Well, his having that view troubles me. By the way, just so you won't think he's a fanatic, Sunstein does accept some choice. He is Pro-Choice where abortion is concerned. And that may just be the only choice he believes in (until that other czar, John Holdren, eliminates this choice as well and pushes forced abortions).
But I won't quibble over something petty like choice because it's the least of Sunstein's delightful characteristics. Good Ol' Cass believes animals should have a right to sue humans. (Yes, you heard me correctly.) Since animals are incapable of speaking or filing briefs, some brilliant human will represent them, naturally. Can you just imagine? After calling the rat exterminator, a rat takes you to court, or more correctly put, some idiot representing a rat takes you to court. I guess a human advocate for an animal makes more sense to him than a human advocate for a human (fetus).
Needless to say, Sunstein also believes hunting should be downright outlawed, but that probably doesn't come as a surprise if he thinks Bambi belongs in a court room rather than the forest. In any event, just listen to the man in his own wonderful words:
5) International Czar: Harold Koh: I must admit, this time the term czar is informal. Obama has not yet officially named the young fellow as a czar, but he is a legal adviser to the State Department, which means he will influence Obama as much as anyone. Koh does not view our constitution as an adequate legal document for the governing of America. He wants to see us bow to International Law. Yes, the United Nations certainly is a beacon of law and liberty. Only recently, the U.N. caved into pressure from Palestinians and will no longer teach on the Holocaust in Gaza schools. After all, Palestinians do not believe the Holocaust ever happened and we wouldn't want to confuse them with the truth. No surprises from the same confederation that once had Syria as head of its Security Council. Yes sir! This is the day we long for, when the United States is made subservient to the United Nations!
But Koh not only embraces International Law. Oh no! Such an ordinary, popular and fashionable principle wouldn't be enough to distinguish him. Koh also believes that in some cases, Americans ought to allow for Sharia Law! Do you understand what Sharia Law is? It is based upon the belief that Muslim rule should be the law of the land. Woman have no rights under Sharia Law. Women have been stoned for being seen in public with certain men under Sharia Law. Those who leave Islam and turn to Christianity have been executed under Sharia Law. Homosexuals have been murdered legally under Sharia Law.
