Cass Sunstein - Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs

Check out this youtube video of Cass, titled "Obama Information Czar Cass Sunstein Confronted on Cognitive Infiltration of Conspiracy Groups". Cass is confronted about a paper he wrote about what the government's response to conspiracy theories should be. He wrote that he favored "cognitive infiltration" of groups that produce conspiracy theories. This is who Obama chose as our "Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs"

II Governmental Responses

What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do? We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. (3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. (4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. (5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions. However, our main policy idea is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4) and (5).

He can't remember writing it

He can't remember writing it and he's just going to do whatever his boss tells him. Inspiring man.

i think...

people like this already exist. You find them on the blogs spewing tremendously insulting hate, but also seeming to be historically well informed. When I would "argue" with them they never seemed like real people because most people aren't so disgustingly hateful. I worry about this country more and more since my eyes have opend.


are here on Daily Paul. A keen eye will pick it up. They want to pick a fight or act overly concerned and nervous about something. They are peddling a pile of poop and you don't want to step in it. Hit the ignore button.

Keepin' it real.

Thanks for this great video, I submitted it to reddit. If you have an account upvote it to get more obamites to perhaps start those critical thinking gears!


That is one BRAVE DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVED THAT - the part where he hounded him till the only way he could escape was in a cab. I'm surprised he didn't run down the street after him.

But, the laughter, the derision.....how long do "they" expect us to take that kind of treatment? That was INSULTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nailed by the infamous Bill DeBerg?

Luke Rudowski is too funny.
