Sunstein, president Obama’s appointee to head the Office
of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and the man who outlined
a plan for the government to infiltrate "conspiracy groups"
in order to undermine them, is in direct line for a promotion
to Supreme Court Justice.
Sunstein, already in an advanced position of power in the White
House as Regulatory czar, has already called for strict restrictions
on gun ownership, an internet "Fairness Doctrine",
and an effective ban on free speech where dissenting opinions
to those of the government are expressed.
Sunstein's name was onvarious
shortlists to replace Justice David Souter last
year following his retirement, and prior to the appointment
of Sonia Sotomayor. Sunstein's name was also touted
for the Supreme Court before Obama even took office
in November 2008.
His close personal relationship with Obama should set alarm
bells ringing for anyone who values the Constitution and the
Bill of Rights, particularly as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,
now aged 75, is likely to take retirement soon following illness,
and with Justice John Paul Stevens now aged 90.
Sunstein and Obama go way back from their faculty days at the
University of Chicago law school and are firm friends. Sunstein
worked as an advisor to Obama during his presidential campaign
and was drafted into the White House soon after Obama won the
As Obama's "Information Czar", Sunstein effectively
interprets the law for the Executive. Sunstein operates in a
similar, but much more elevated, role to that of former Justice
Department lawyer John Yoo, who infamously re-interpreted the
law to legally sanction torture under the Bush Administration.
As we highlighted in
our article yesterday, Sunstein has outlined plans
for the government to infiltrate "conspiracy groups",
including the 9/11 Truth Movement, in order to undermine them
via postings on chat rooms and social networks, as well as real
Sunstein has effectively penned the blueprint for a Cointelpro
“provocateur” style program to silence what have
become the government’s most vociferous and influential
The specifics of the plans must be read in full in order to
gauge their extreme nature and the threat Sunstein poses to
the freedom in America.
In effect, Obama’s information czar wants to tax or ban
outright, as in make illegal, opinions and ideas that the government
doesn’t approve of.
Sunstein's definition of a "conspiracy theorist"
encompasses those who question manmade global warming and, most
bizarrely, anyone who believes that sunlight is healthy for
Presumably if Sunstein had been in power in the latter middle
ages he would have attempted to tax and then ban the work of
Galileo Galilei for subscribing to the theory that the Earth
was not the centre of the universe and that it actually revolved
around the Sun.
When he's not going after those evil sunlight lovers, Sunstein
Internet censorship via enforced and regulated
links in news pieces to opposing opinions.
Sunstein himself later retracted that proposal, explaining
that it would be "too difficult to regulate [the Internet]
in a way that would respond to those concerns", and admitting
that it was "almost certainly unconstitutional."
Sunstein has also called for the re-writing of the First Amendment,
and has even proposed a mandatory celebration of
tax day in America.
His views on the Second Amendment have also raised serious
concerns. In his book "Radicals in Robes," he wrote:
"[A]lmost all gun control legislation is constitutionally
Sunstein is on record attacking the Second Amendment. Watch
in the following clip as he says "The Supreme Court has
never suggested that the Second Amendment protects the individual
right to have guns."
Given his extreme actions and stated intentions, Cass Sunstein
should be forced out of office and barred from practicing law
with immediate effect. If president Obama has his way, however,
we may very soon see his good buddy Sunstein elevated to the
highest judicial position in the country.
