Obama Czar: Infiltrate All 'Conspiracy Theorists'

WND reports:

In a lengthy academic paper, President Obama’s regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, argued the U.S. government should ban “conspiracy theorizing.”

Among the beliefs Sunstein would ban is advocating that the theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud.

Sunstein also recommended the government send agents to infiltrate “extremists who supply conspiracy theories” to disrupt the efforts of the “extremists” to propagate their theories.

This clown is going to create a tidal wave of conspiracy theories by saying he’s going to “infiltrate” conspiracy theorist groups and communications.

He wants to put paid agitprop agents on the web to disseminate government approved ideas into web blogs, chat rooms, forums, etc.. etc..

The government has been engaged in this for a long time now.  There have been numerous programs going all the way back to the 60′s that involve government agents essentially running psychological operations against the American people.  The most famous of which is called COINTELPRO (co-intel-pro).

An example of government discrediting private citizens that it disagreed with:

On top of that, he wants government to “regulate” the airwaves, which of course is liberal code word for sieze political control and use them as a tool of the State to push the State approved message.   Using typical Orwellian newspeak, such a program would be called the “Fairness Doctrine”.   Kind of like the “Patriot Act”, where by you’re not a patriot if you don’t support giving up your privacy and constitutional rights in the name of fighting terrists.

Of course, the CIA did all this under total black op secrecy, so its surprising to see a Czar out there openly stating that the government should be engaging in psyops against the public.

I can see NRA web sites being flooded with anti-gun agitprop, anti-global warming web sites being flooded with discredited bogus government paid research papers, and libertarian websites being flooded with anti-constitutional commentary about how certain founders were actually socialists (untrue) and in favor of a gigantic all powerful state.

Its bad enough people have to sift through piles of garbage agitprop pumped out by the State which is already spending millions on pushing its agenda, not including all the free air time they can command and a publicly funded agitprop tv and radio network.   This “Czar” wants to flood the web with dis-info as well.

Stalin would definitely be proud.  The Soviet State had a “Ideological Department” to manage its control over the media and State approved groupthink.  Dissent with the State was verboten and numerous regulatory and dissemination agencies managed what thoughts were acceptable.

I for one look forward to the day I am arrested as a political prisoner for expressing my views in the land of the free.

Praise Mao.

    Re: Top Obama czar: Infiltrate all ‘conspiracy theorists’

    In effect the Obama Government intends to infiltrate and spy on Americans, their groups and organizations to obstruct Free Speech, disrupt the exchange of ideas and disseminate false information to neutralize Americans that question government.

    The fact is—government has already laid the groundwork for the covert infiltration of Americans. Since 9/11 federal government has established across the nation more than 112 Fusion Centers. Fusion Centers were originally established to improve the sharing of anti-terrorism intelligence among different state, local and federal law enforcement agencies. But has since expanded with encouragement of the federal government to pursue all crimes and hazards. Fusion Centers now pursue for analysis not just criminal and terrorist information, but any information that can be derived from police, public records and private sector data about Citizens. Fusion Centers increasingly are involving the Military in addition to other government entities. Fusion centers heavily rely on local informants for information about Americans to share with local, State, and federal police agencies. Recently the Department of Homeland Security began sharing more classified Military information with local Fusion Centers: historically local police have not kept secrets well. Because approximately 40 Fusion Centers appear to operate more independently, it is not possible to generalize the mission of Fusion Centers. Fusion Centers take advantage of ambiguous lines of authority to manipulate differences in federal, state and local laws to maximize information collection. Increasingly private security companies and their operatives, work so closely with law enforcement and Fusion Centers—providing and exchanging information about Americans, they appear to merge with police. Fusion Centers exchange information with select private sector companies and continue to evade accountability and public oversight.

    While the press has on occasion discussed Fusion Centers invading the privacy of Citizens, media missed Fusion Centers’ involvement in criminal and civil asset forfeitures. Just prior to the establishment of Fusion Centers, Rep. Henry Hyde’s bill HR 1658 passed, the “Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000” and effectively eliminated the “statue of limitations” for Government Civil Asset Forfeiture. The statute now runs five years from when police allege they “learned” that an asset became subject to forfeiture. With such a weak statute of limitations and the low standard of civil proof needed for government to forfeit property “A preponderance of Evidence”, it was problematic law enforcement and private government contractors would access Fusion Center data to secure evidence to arrest Americans and or civilly forfeit their homes, inheritances and businesses under Title 18USC and other laws to keep part of the assets. There are over 200 U.S. laws and violations mentioned in the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 and the Patriot Act that can subject property to civil asset forfeiture.” Under federal civil forfeiture laws, a person or business need not be charged or convicted of a crime for government to forfeit their property.

    Under the USA Patriot Act, witnesses can be kept hidden while being paid part of the assets they cause to be forfeited. The Patriot Act specifically mentions using Title 18USC asset forfeiture laws: those laws include a provision in Rep. Henry Hyde’s 2000 bill HR 1658—for “retroactive civil asset forfeiture” of “assets already subject to government forfeiture”, meaning “property already tainted by crime” provided “the property” was already part of or “later connected” to a criminal investigation in progress” when HR.1658 passed. That can apply to more than two hundred federal laws and violations.
