I have been wanting to do a post on Cass Sunstein for a while now, but I kept hoping that he would not be approved. Sadly, he was approved by the Senate as President Obama’s newly confirmed administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Technically he is not what the White House would refer to as a czar because he actually had to be approved unlike the others such as Mark Lloyd, John Holdren, and Van Jones (now resigned). But he holds by far the most outlandish, unbelievably ridiculous ideas I have ever seen come across our government. This guy may need real professional help, or he just might be the biggest tree hugging animal rights kook ever!

Cass Sunstein believes that animals think, feel, and deserve equal rights and treatment as human beings. He has many times quoted authors who compare animals to slaves and say that a dog is more rational than a human baby. One of these quotes that Sunstein quoted was directly from a late 18th century social reformer by the name of Jeremy Bentham having said, “The day may come, when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been withholden from them but by the hand of tyranny.” And then he goes on to quote more. Can’t believe it? See it for your self here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoiHIbwRhSo.

Cass Sunstein also believes that animals should be able to have an attorney and bring lawsuits against humans. He wants to ban hunting all together, which of course you can see how this would in a very huge way affect the 2nd amendment. Cass is a major supporter of gun control. Sunstein thinks we should not be allowed to eat meat, we should not be allowed to remove rodents from our home if it causes them pain, AND restrictions on FARMING to prevent unnecessary animal suffering. This man also believes that ALL human beings should be organ donors, in other words, we should not have a choice. And the list goes on. His opinions really are far from that of any democrat, republican, or independent that I know. He does not reflect the will of the people, maybe the animals, but certainly not the people.

Now, here we are one day after Cass Sunstein’s approval by the Senate and he is already trying to push a new interpretation to The Bill of Rights. And although this is a surprise to most of us just learning of Cass Sunstein, it is no surprise to those who nominated and approved him into office. He has written a book in 2004 called “The Second Bill of Rights: FDR’S Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever” which comes from President Roosevelt’s proposal for a completely new set of bill of rights in 1944. And as published on http://www.wnd.com, in 2005 at Yale Law School, Sunstein opened a conference titled “The Constitution in 2020,” which spoke about changing the nature of the Constitution by 2020. We have to let Washington know that we do not approve of this right away! This is not acceptable and we will not stand for them changing our Bill of Rights or our Constitution. They knew who they were approving into office with the partisan vote of 57-40, and with it they gave this man way too much power.
