Cass Sunstein Conspiracy Theories Ban - Infiltrate, Tax, Spy

President Obama's control-freak, Czarist Cass Sunstein want the U.S. government to ban all "conspiracy theorizing." In a 2008 Harvard law paper, he recommends that government agents infiltrate "extremists" who believe in conspiracy theories.

The paper was written in response to a Harvard law professor, who ask "What can government do about conspiracy theories?" The far-left and dangerous Sunstein also suggested TAXING conspiracy theorists. Read the story at WorldNetDaily.

The above pales beside what we know about Cass Sunstein, Obama's Regulatory Czar, and according to Glenn Beck, "The most dangerous Czar." About a so-called Fairness Doctrine, Sunstein said in an online book, that the government must not reject restricting our freedoms:

...one thing is clear: a system of limitless individual choices with respect to communications is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government, and efforts to reduce the resulting problems ought not to be rejected in freedom's cause.
The following are snippets from Glenn Beck's radio show conversations:
Cass Sunstein is a guy who is against the Second Amendment, who believes that the purpose of the Second Amendment is not an individual right but a federal right. He says almost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine and if the Court is right, the fundamentalism does not justify the view.
He believes that the Second Amendment is the biggest ‑‑ I'm looking for the ‑‑ I'm looking for the exact quote ‑‑ is the biggest lie in American history. He also believes that we ought to ban hunting. He believes that animals should have a right, should be able to bring suit because they are not property. You can't own a dog. They should be able to sue you. He says willingness to subject animals to suffering will be seen as a form of barbarity, morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings.
Sunstein wants to control the Internet, especially discussion groups (conspiracy theorists show their colors in comments and forums):
A legislative effort to regulate broadcasting in the interest of Democratic principles. Wow, that's the words that Chavez always used. Should not be seen as an abridgement of the free speech guarantee. Regulate broadcast in the interest of Democratic principles is not an abridgement of the free speech guarantee. A system of limitless individual choices with respect to communications is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self‑government.
On civil liberties courts should ordinarily require restrictions on civil liberties to be authorized by the legislature.
On taxes Sunstein scolds readers like small‑minded selfish children for opposing the size, scope, expansion and skyrocketing expense of the government. Quote:
In what sense in the money in our pockets and bank accounts are fully ours. Did we earn it by our autonomous efforts? Could we have inherited it without the assistance of probate courts? Do we save it without the sport of bank regulators? Could we spend it if there were no public officials to coordinate the efforts and pool the resources of the community in which we live.

Without taxes there is no liberty.
Here is Sunstein's justification for "government intervention:
He also believes that we need a second Bill of Rights. In a nutshell, quoting, the New Deal helped vindicate a simple idea. No one really opposes government intervention. Even the people who most loudly denounce government interference depend on it every single day.

For better or worse, the Constitution's framers gave no thought to including social and economic guarantees in the Bill of Rights.

This will be a gigantic move in the direction of gigantic government because let me explain what he's going to do.
Beck talks about Sunstein's job description:
He doesn't want to change the laws. All he wants to do is just tweak the regulations. So the laws are passed and then he tweaks the regulations.

We've seen this ‑‑ this is what's happening right now in California with the farmers. The animals have to be saved. The smelt, a four‑inch fish, the smelt needs to be saved. Farmers can't use that much water. So they've reduced the water supply to farms by, what is it, 80 or 90%. Well, the farmers ‑‑ this is an area now that has 28 to 40% unemployment. The farmers cannot farm. They don't have enough water. All for the smelt. That is what a regulatory czar does...
The daily outrages are overwhelming. At the time Beck was focusing on Sunstein, we were indeed, outraged. Today he is not such a hot topic, and the Regulatory Czar is still a Regulatory Czar. Let's be reminded that Cass Sunstein is one enormous reason why supporting candidates like conservative Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts, Marco Rubio's primary race for U.S. Senate, against liberal Republican Charlie Crist in Florida , and conservative Allen West, running for the U.S. House for Florida against incumbent Democrat Ron Kelin. No matter your State, these races are just a few of those matter in a major way, in the possible ouster of communists inhabiting the offices of the White House.
