He’s back: Obama appoints former regulatory czar Cass Sunstein to NSA oversight panel

You may remember Cass Sunstein from his days as the Obama Administration regulatory czar, but now he is back in a job that should scare any American concerned about privacy. Just what is Sunstein, who Glenn once labeled "the most dangerous man in America," up to now?

Yesterday, President Obama appointed Sunstein to serve on the NSA oversight panel. This appointment is particularly interesting when you consider that, in 2008, Sunstein co-wrote a paper at Harvard advocating government infiltration of conspiracy theorists.

“Those who subscribe to conspiracy theories may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law,” the paper reads. “Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a crippled epistemology, in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. Various policy dilemmas, such as the question whether it is better for government to rebut conspiracy theories or to ignore them, are explored in this light.”

With that mindset, one can only imagine what kind of ‘oversight’ Sunstein will offer the NSA.

“Listen to this, America. Cass Sunstein, whose idol is Edward Bernays – his book was the book found on Goebbels’ desk. Goebbels is the guy who was the architect of propaganda, who said he learned it from the American progressive. He learned it from Bernays,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “Sunstein couldn't wait to get into government because he's the guy responsible for all of the regulation. He's the guy responsible for all the paperwork. That's important to understand – he is controlling you through choices and paperwork. And so this guy, we said for a long time: Most dangerous man in America.”

“And now he's been appointed by the president for the panel to oversee the NSA,” Pat said disgusted.

President Obama created the NSA oversight panel because, in the aftermath of the Edward Snowden leaks, many Americans began to question the motives of the NSA. The President claims he wants people to trust the NSA, and yet he chose to appoint the man who wrote a book called Nudge: Improving Decisions about Heath, Wealth, and Happiness, which condones government over-regulation, to be a part of the panel.

“And here he is, Cass Sunstein, the guy who says it's the government's responsibility to lie to you. These aren't my words. These are his word. I'm paraphrasing, but these are his words,” Glenn said. “He says it is the government's responsibility that if you see somebody that is coming out against a government program, you immediately say ‘conspiracy theorist’ and you immediately label them as a conspiracy theorist.”

“Look at how well it's working. You label them a conspiracy theorist and so nobody pays attention to them. Now, anybody who says the government should lie to you and to malign people and to destroy people because they're telling you the truth is evil,” he continued. “When all of this stuff eventually comes out – and it will because I will hunt for the truth for the rest of my life. I will expose these people for the rest of my life. I will never give up exposing the truth of what these people have done and the lies that they tell for power.”

“And that's all it is,” Glenn concluded. “Cass Sunstein is a power hungry man. He believes he knows better than you, and the progressives know better than you, and so he will show them how to trap you.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
