In case you don’t know who Cass Sunstein is, let us fill you in. He runs President Obama’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Think of him as the Red Tape Czar. Obama and he go way back because Sunstein has taught at the University of Chicago Law School for 27 years. He’s one of the main radicals in an administration teeming with them.
In fact, what Sunstein does for Obama domestically, his wife, Samantha Power, does internationally. She’s a member of the National Security Council and is Senior Director the Office of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights. She’s rumored to be in line to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.
The bottom line: Sunstein and Power are two of the main drivers behind Obama’s radical agenda.
OK, enough background. Now let’s get to the video clip. Sunstein is testifying before the Senate and starts talking about environmental justice. (Question: Why does justice always appear to be the thing least desired by people who talk about it incessantly?)
Joe Lieberman treats him with complete respect and asks how costs and benefits are calculated. Sunstein throws out a lot of buzzwords and attempts to make it sound like costs and benefits are somehow scientifically determined.
Then Republican Senator Ben Johnson steps up to the plate and nails Sunstein’s complete line of bull.
“How does that create a burden of proof,” Johnson asks, “when it’s a loophole you can drive a truck through?”
In other words, Sunstein’s just making up shit up as he goes along.
Just once, just once we want to see a member of the House or Senate look one of these guys in the eyes and say, “I have no questions for you. You’re a freaking radical dedicated to destroying this country. I have no interest in wasting my time on you except to expose what you really are.”
