And just like clockwork, the Van Jones race baiting begins
In Saturday night’s late-night diary about the Jones resignation, I commented in the discussion threads that before the day was out today (Sunday), cries of “racism!” would sound. And just as predictably as the sun rising in the morning, there they are. From page 2 of the Politico story, published late Sunday: Some progressives said they saw racial overtones in Jones’ departure – which came | Read More »
The Winds of Change
“The winds of change blow round and round, It makes a mighty rumbling sound.” Those changes came swiftly and most rumblingly to Van Jones, special advisor for green jobs at the white house, after people learned of his past in his own words. Truly, his resignation was self-inflicted by his passion for spouting his ideology hither and yon, across the media landscape.
Glenn Beck vs. Van Jones
Glenn Beck = Winner. For weeks Beck has been highlighting the antics of Van Jones, noted self-avowed Communist, race baiter, and nut. At the same time, Van Jones’s group “Color of Change” has been leading a boycott of Beck trying to shut him down. The boycotters have gotten so desperate they are making stuff up — claiming companies are boycotting Beck who are not. Well, | Read More »
A Great Victory, But Not One That Allows Us To Rest On Our Laurels
As noted by CNN (where I first saw the story) and here at RedState, self-avowed Communist and Obama “Green Czar” Van Jones resigned from his position around midnight. As is obvious, it was done during a holiday weekend and while the President was on “vacation” so that Obama didn’t have to worry about having to answer pesky questions from the media, provided they bother asking. | Read More »
The War for the California Republican Party
At our next Republican Convention here in California, the most important vote we take may be the vote to close our primary elections, ensuring that people are Republicans before they can choose who will represent our party on the ballot. Since 1999 when we opened our primaries to those who do not join a party, we have had no noteworthy statewide electoral success from primary-nominated | Read More »
Breaking News: Van Jones has resigned as “Green Czar”
MSNBC and FoxNews.com are reporting this tonight. Few details as yet. Story now up at Foxnews.com (h/t izoneguy) Interesting time to be turning in one’s resignation – midnight Saturday night, on a holiday weekend. I guess this gives the MSM a chance to not report it again… UPDATE #1 Ironically, the first info to trickle out seems to be from the Washington Post, who ignored | Read More »
Have No Doubt, The Race Card Will Be Played
I’ve been following along with the saga of President Obama’s “Green Czar”, someone who can’t define what a “green” job is (nor can anyone else), the self-avowed Communist Van Jones. The push to get him removed has done much to further put on display Obama’s past and present associations with outright radicals, and showing Obama to be as unserious as any of these people who | Read More »
Top 10 Reasons O Admin is going to keep 9-11 Truther Jones
Since the Obama administration seems to be digging in its heels and not immediately ditching 9-11 Truther Van Jones, the “Green” Czar, I did some investigating to try to determine the top 10 reasons why they want Jones to remain on the White House payroll. To wit… 10. Already had plans to feature him in his speech to the ObamaYouth on Tuesday as another example | Read More »
Van Jones Mocks Columbine
The latest from self avowed communist revolutionary and all around bon vivant, Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar”, Van Jones. “You’ve never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never. They always say, ‘We can’t believe it happened here. We can’t believe it’s these suburban white kids.’ It’s only them. Now, a black kid might shoot another black kid. He’s not going to shoot up the | Read More »

OK, now I want to know who *suggested* Van Jones for his job.
Because he or she has to go, too. Unless it is the official stance of the current administration that the previous President of the United States of America was a ‘crackhead,’ of course. In that case, I would like to see a White House spokesperson state that formally for the record. Via Hot Air Pundit, via @seanhackbarth. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Van Jones Should Not Get a Pass With an Apology. Barack Obama Should Not Get A Pass by Throwing Him Under the Bus
It is objectively clear that Van Jones is a 9/11 Truther.I’m also hearing that many in D.C. expect Jones is on his way out and it might come as soon as 5:00 p.m. today — the start of a 3 day weekend with the President out of town so it can all blow over.Despite Van Jones’ name appearing on a 9/11 Truther petition in 2004, | Read More »
*Another* apology coming, Van Jones?
Why is it that none of this came out at Jones’ confirmation hearing… right. The administration didn’t think that its executive appointee ‘czars’ [needed] to go through that silly little confirmation process. We just needed to not worry ourselves and trust them. Which is really ironic, considering that Van Jones’ name keeps coming up associated with groups and statements that pretty explicitly don’t trust the | Read More »
