Obama orders Behavioral experiments on U.S. Citizens


In what should chill the marrow of our bones, this latest Executive order should have the GOP Presidential candidates rocking on their feet. Where are the headlines? Where is the Media, the GOP? Anyone out there? Am I the only one in this echo chamber? Good ole Cass Sunstein is getting his earlier wishes. (Married to Samantha Power of the Arab Spring fame.)

President Obama announced a new executive order on Tuesday which authorizes federal agencies to conduct behavioral experiments on U.S. citizens in order to advance government initiatives.

“A growing body of evidence demonstrates that behavioral science insights — research findings from fields such as behavioral economics and psychology about how people make decisions and act on them — can be used to design government policies to better serve the American people,” reads the executive order, released on Tuesday.

The initiative draws on research from University of Chicago economist Richard Thaler and Harvard law school professor Cass Sunstein, who was also dubbed Obama’s regulatory czar. The two behavioral scientists argued in their 2008 book “Nudge” that government policies can be designed in a way that “nudges” citizens towards certain behaviors and choices.

The desired choices almost always advance the goals of the federal government, though they are often couched as ways to cut overall program spending.

Earlier post: Cass Sunstein behind monitoring of websites

Just prior to his appointment as President Obama’s so-called regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein wrote alengthy academic paper suggesting the government should “infiltrate” social network websites, chat rooms and message boards.

In a rare public appearance, The Obama Administration’s Information Czar Cass Sunstein gave a lecture at the NYU Law School in NYC yesterday, prompting Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange to attend. Watch as Luke confronts Sunstein multiple times on an academic paper he co-authored back in 2008 entitled “Conspiracy Theories” in which he called for cognitive infiltration of conspiracy groups by the government.

    Cass Sunstein is a snake. Period.

    Yet, few Americans even know his name — in the Information Age.

    “I might agree with some of the things I’ve written? I focus on what my boss wants me to do?” Is Sunstein BREATHING? THINKING? “I don’t remember the article (I WROTE!?”)” ???!! ‘I hope I didn’t say either of those things”…..”but you DID say that…..”… “I’m focused on my job”
    This man is a WORM!!! I wonder if he knows who Goebbels WAS!

    Seems to me like ‘infiltrate’ is never a positive thinng, but “government should “infiltrate” social network websites, chat rooms and message boards.” Are we SURE this is America anymore?
    Brother, Bunkerville, were you and I on the same beam today, huh?
    And Alec is right….if they’re actually TELLING us this much, I’d hate to see what the Obama thugs/Sunstein, etc., are REALLY doing….

      The truth is they have no shame. He did say he was going to transform our country. That he did. I don’t recognize anything. That this could go down is something I don’t know recognize as American.

        and what are all of us DOING but blogging, right? Very frustrating to see this happen……..wish we could do much more. Voting, apparently, isn’t enough. In fact, it’s probably a detriment, considering the fraud and uninformed, unAmerican people voting.
        And believe me, I do NOT consider all Democrats unAmerican…….am not suggesting that.
        But I believe voting for entitlements and other goodies is not American,. nor is voting for other things that are not healthy for America…like illegals, the nuke deal, etc etc!

    I’m with alec – it’s the what they are not saying part that is of concern.
    “government policies can be designed in a way that ‘nudges’ citizens toward certain behaviors and choices,”
    At this point it looks like more propaganda. OK. We get it every blankety blank day in media and every frickin time he opens his mouth.
    The question is – when do they start working with individuals/groups – real people – not ads and mail – to test whatever the fack they want to test?

      After they start moving into the chat rooms, blogs perhaps. Cass always wanted to outlaw so called conspiracy theories – anything anti government. Just the first step.

    These are the kinds of laws and orders intended to exonerate and remove from possible prosecution those who acted illegally in the past. It’s a cynical view, but doesn’t it make you wonder what they’re not saying?
