“Cass Sunstein, Obama’s administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Office of Management and Budget, has announced his departure. He will leave later this month and return to Harvard Law School.
Sunstein gained notoriety on a number of fronts. He called for dispatching government agents to sabotage individuals and groups opposed to government – most notably those at odds with the official 9/11 narrative – and suggested the government hold people responsible for the information they post on the internet.
In May of 2011, former president Bill Clinton adopted Sunstein’s idea of creating an internet Ministry of Truth.
‘Couching the idea in the kind of doublespeak rhetoric that would make George Orwell roll in his grave, Clinton said that the agency would have to be ‘independent’ and ‘transparent,’ but that it would be created and run by the federal government – a complete oxymoron,’ Paul Joseph Watson wrote at the time…”
“…Flashback: (Beck in 2009: ‘The most dangerous czar’)
‘Like Obama, Sunstein embraces “behavioral economics” – an emphasis on human behavior, rather than abstract theory, for identifying incentives to promote desired financial and environmental activity by individuals and corporations. The field of study supplied early underpinnings for Obama’s plans for health care and financial regulation…’
… As The Blaze’s Erica Ritz defined earlier this week, ‘Sunstein has long-advocated ‘nudging’ Americans in the direction they really ought to go, by defining their choices and making the less desirable ones more inconvenient. No one is forcing you to do anything…just helping to guide your decisions.
At Harvard, Sunstein will hold the position of Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law and director of the school’s of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy, according to Politico…”
In the above video, Glenn Beck is referring to Cass Sunstein’s 2003 paper entitled, “Lives, Life-Years and Willingness to Pay” pdf (U Chicago Law & Economics, Olin Working Paper No. 191; AEI-Brookings Joint Center Working Paper No. 03-5 )
In other words, Sunstein will resume his life’s work of poisoning the well, hardly anything to celebrate. Supposedly, Obama has decided to place more costly, stringent, unpopular and no doubt unconstitutional regulations on hold until after the November elections.
As for Sunstein’s predecessor, the budget office’s general counsel, Boris Bershteyn (Spring 2001 Fellows of the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans), born in the Ukraine will replace Sunstein as acting director. Note: Paul Soros is the elder brother of puppet master, George Soros.
