Van Jones is history

From The Washington Post:

White House environmental adviser Van Jones resigned Saturday after weeks of controversy stemming from his past activism.

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones, special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, said in a statement announcing his resignation just after midnight Saturday. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

He continued: "I have been inundated with calls -- from across the political spectrum -- urging me to 'stay and fight.' But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future."

Wow, I he would have lasted until Monday. I guess that second 9/11 Truther statement and his racist music album was way too much proof that he was a crackpot. Just reading his latest statement, one has to wonder if Van Jones really does have a connection to reality.

"They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide." Ugly lies? These are 9/11 conspiracy organizations that Van Jones himself signed on to. There are videos all over YouTube showing Van Jones in his own words, calling Republicans a**holes, talking smack about white people and on and on.

"I have been inundated with calls -- from across the political spectrum -- urging me to 'stay and fight.” This is pure fantasy. I am sure that on the far left, he got much encouragement, but everybody else was like WTF?

The whole Van Jones saga could not come at a worst time for Obama. As Obama tries to find a way out of the box he is in on health care reform, this is a major distraction. It does not help in terms of credibility either, as parents across the nation are creeped out by his public school address, Van Jones' past feeds into the idea that Obama is a barking moonbat radical too. Look for comparisons between Obama, Reverend Wright and Van Jones to start surfacing again.

Glenn Beck comes out a both a big winner and somewhat of a loser. His ratings have gone through the roof and will now head for the stratosphere, as he is proven right about Van Jones. Beck’s victory comes with a price. The Raaaaacism Industrial Complex will firmly attach a bull’s-eye to Beck and that won’t go away anytime soon.

Valerie Jarrett and the Czars are now under the microscope. Valerie Jarrett’s ringing endorsement of Van Jones will lead to questions about what she knew and when she knew. People are going to want to know who the hell these Czars are and what are they doing. If I had to guess, I would say Science Czar John Holdren is going to be the next notch on Glenn Beck’s belt. Holdren's ideas of forced abortions and sterilizing the population is just the type of stuff that focuses people’s attention.

Color of Change is probably the biggest loser in all of this. In their boycott of Glenn Beck failed to get him kicked off the air, instead it turbo charged him and got their founder Van Jones fired. Something tells me that instead of dropping their failed efforts, they are going to try to double down.

Finally count Fox News and rightwing bloggers as winners for doing the MSM’s job. Fox News gains tons of new viewers thanks to the Beck boycott and still retained much of their advertisers.

I'm surprised it happened so quickly. It makes you wonder how far up the chain of command the command for him to resign came.

You know, if all the criticisms of him were lies, then he should not have resigned. Part of integrity is standing up for truth, no matter what.

Which ones were lies, anyway? It has been proven that he was a member of STORM, that he called himself a communist, that he called Republicans a------s, that he was a part of the Truther movement, that he claimed that white people caused pollution in order to harm people of color. What lies have been told about him?

Nice blog, by the way.

Thank you Glenn Beck. The good news is that he's out of the administration. The bad news is that he'll still be organizing radical groups with radical agendas. No doubt he'll still be a "behind the scenes" advisor to president as well.

I am pleased to see that the Age of Information has lept ahead of "politics as usual." No longer can actions in Washington simply occur without scrutiny. Left or Right, the curtain has been pulled back and the people are finally paying attention. thank you for being a part of the awakening.

I believe a good many folks inside the beltway have lost touch with reality. I am glad Van Jones resigned. I wish more of those who are out of touch with the majority of Americans would follow in his footsteps.

I fear a lesson in history may show the movement of this Regime.

Can anyone say "Hitler Youth".

Beck losing advertisers only meant that we had more Beck!

Just remember, Jones is still a threat, and will remain a threat but behind the scenes.

It ain't over until the WH once again belongs to the American people!

Just the best news I've had in a while. GOD Bless America, Land that I Love! We can't rest ... Much work lies ahead. Glenn Beck is THE man!

Janie Lynn said...

I do believe Glenn is going to need a lot of support because you're right, there will be a target on his back. He's too good for them to ignore!

Smile said...

No wonder they want to guilt trip us into staying quiet and tolerant. They call us names thinking it will still work its voodoo and keep us down.

Renaissance guy:

I have a feeling that the order came from waaaay up high. If I had to guess, there was more to find about Jones and that is why he got the rapid boot.

One Ticked Chick:

You are correct about the bad part. Now he can do his nonsense undercover. Lord knows what he is up to now.

Clifton B said...


Welcome to ABC blog. You are right, the Internet is the great equalizer for Washington's secret shenanigans. I am only too happy to spread the word.

Clifton B said...

Aunt Amelia:

You're quite welcome :-D

Clifton B said...

The Texican:

The only way others like Jones will leave is if we kick them out. Washington has no shame anymore.

Clifton B said...


High five!

Clifton B said...


Keep your eye on Americore, that is coming.

Clifton B said...


You are so correct. Vigilance is the order of the day for the next 3+ years.

Clifton B said...


Actually it would have been way smarter for the administration to wait until after the Sunday morning talk shows were over. But hey they are amateurs.

Clifton B said...


LOL! That would be perfect now!

Clifton B said...


Welcome to ABC blog. You are right no rest for the "Wary"!

Janie Lynn:

Yes, Beck did good, but bought himself a boatload of trouble.

Clifton B said...


Yes they would love us to be disparages, and docile. Ain't gonna happen.
