…the White House is already working on such projects with almost a dozen federal departments and agencies including the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture….
The White House has invested with our taxpayer dollars in a “Behavioral Insights Team” aka PSYOPS Team whose sole agenda is to nudge then shove Americans into habits and direction that the Communist ruling elites have ordained appropriate. H/t Gateway Pundit.
…The federal government is hiring what it calls a ‘Behavioral Insights Team’ that will look for ways to subtly influence people’s behavior, according to a document describing the program obtained by FoxNews.com. Critics warn there could be unintended consequences to such policies, while supporters say the team could make government and society more efficient.
‘Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people to achieve their goals,’ reads the government document describing the program, which goes on to call for applicants to apply for positions on the team.
The document was emailed by Maya Shankar, a White House senior adviser on social and behavioral sciences, to a university professor with the request that it be distributed to people interested in joining the team. The idea is that the team would ‘experiment’ with various techniques, with the goal of tweaking behavior so people do everything from saving more for retirement to saving more in energy costs….
Below are two excerpts from the document mentioned above “Research to Results: Strengthening Federal Capacity for Behavioral Insight”. (See document further down in the post.)
…A growing body of evidence suggests that insights from the social and behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people to achieve their goals….
Translation: The government who is running psychological operations (psyops) on Americans knows better than you do, in addition to it being for the good of the collective.
Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), which through a process of rapid, iterative experimentation (“Test, Learn, Adapt”), has successfully identified and tested interventions that will further advance priorities of the British government…”
…The federal government is currently creating a new team that will help build federal capacity to experiment with these approaches, and to scale behavioral interventions that have been rigorously evaluated, using, where possible, randomized controlled trials….
[Keywords: “iterative experimentation”and “Test, Learn, Adapt” “iterative” meaning repetition.
“iteration” refers to a repetitive process:
…a step in a repetitive process or a single stage of a reoccurring sequence. In its first usage, iterations are a single complete stage of a process that is repeated, in its entirety, over and over again. This use is common in naturally-occurring phenomena and mathematics — basically, any system where sequences occur spontaneously. The second definition is broader and describes repetitive situations….

Warning: Below is my take on Obama’s NUDGE SQUAD which to some may be a bit far out but nevertheless, here it is.
As mentioned above, the NUDGE SQUAD is already at work in more than a dozen government agencies (Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education, Veterans Administration, Department of Treasury, Social Security Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development and United States Department of Agriculture).
While it is being reported that the Behavioral Insights Team aka PSYOPS Team is allegedly only in its formative stage; I would beg to differ.
When taking into consideration just how long Barack Obama has been manipulating the American people, it leads one to suspect that a NUDGE SQUAD has been in play by various Obama organizations dating as far back to the 2008 presidential campaign and earlier.
For example, we have Obama on the campaign stump in 2008, telling his supporters to get in their neighbors faces, useful idiots did exactly that.
After the elections, Obama and his Commie clan engaged in repetitive attacks against the Tea Party, Catholic Church, Pro-life organizations, Republicans, Black Conservatives not to mention businesses, the rich; Obama’s class warfare, spreading the wealth and everyone paying their fair share rhetoric. Progressive sock puppets again bought it all lock, stock and barrel resulting in targeting and other attempts to silence all who oppose the Progressive agenda.
Before, during and after the Zimmerman trial, Obama, Holder and the rest of the Communist clan in collusion with Obama’s media lapdogs repetitively stoked the flames of racism and derision which has further divided the nation thrusting it ever since into chaos. I submit another desired result and distraction beneficial only to Obama and his clan of race profiteers.
The result of the repeated attacks and espousal of propaganda on so many levels by Progressives in collusion with the media successfully diverts attention away from treasonous acts of the Obama administration in the past and going forward while at the same time tainting those who oppose the Progressive agenda in the minds of useful idiots. All of the above again brought about the intended results of the ruling elites.
The latest example of NUDGING by Barack Obama, himself, is the past week’s series of campaign events, which is supposed to be about the economy and jobs; yet Obama has always manages to slip in at every event negative remarks about the big, bad Republicans, Washington not keeping its eye on the ball and those “phony scandals”.
Although Obama is lying through his teeth, the liar, his lying media lapdogs, the liars in his administration and propagandists will repeat the lies often enough that the useful idiots not accepting or remembering that their messiah has already acknowledged the scandals will obediently accept the lies as facts (PSYOPS).
Thus keeping in mind that the “Behavioral Insights Team” aka PSYOPS Team has already been deployed throughout a dozen plus agencies, not to mention on state and local levels, Americans should particularly concern themselves with:
– Obamacare, HHS and the IRS
– Michelle Obama’s “Americans and our children are obese” agenda, forcing restaurants to change their portion sizes; the “Walking School Bus Program”;
– Michael Bloomberg’s nanny state (on a local level) and he’s not the only one;
– Tom Vilsack, Obama’s Agricultural czar who feels that “Americans just need to tweak their taste buds”;
– Michael Taylor, FDA, Obama’s food safety czar and former VP for public policy, Monsanto
– Janet Napolitano’s “If you see something say something” agenda;
– Social engineering;
– Common Core
That is just to name a few but long before all of the above was Eric Holder’s infamous 1995 statement about taking our guns:
…We need to change the way in which people think about guns…get at the minds of those young people…
…We just have to be repetitive about this…and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way…
You see how well that worked out.
In lieu of the confirmation for many, revelation for others of Obama’s behavioral modification agenda NUDGE PSYOPS campaign whose endgame is to SHOVE American on every level into compliance under the Marxist ruling elites, we should all be concerned. Rest assured, that there will come a day when the nudging will graduate to shoving.
ALL OF THE ABOVE IS behavioral modification, social engineering, nudging at its ugliest and for those who still refuse to believe, check out the following book review of “Nudge: Improving decisions about health, wealth, and happiness: Richard H. Thaler, Cass R. Sun stein”, or the pdf version of the book, NUDGE itself.
If it is just too much to grasp, google videos of Cass Sunstein.
On a final note, I haven’t touched on the many horrific events that have occurred in the United States since Obama has tarnished in the White House.
Better yet, go to Jon Rappoport’s blog. There is much to learn there.
