Wonderful: “Green jobs” czar Van Jones is a Truther

posted at 1:36 pm on September 3, 2009 by Allahpundit

In which Gateway Pundit does the Googling that Obama refuses to do. Although honestly, at this point I think Jones’s hiring is best explained not as a breakdown in vetting but as a goof by Obama to see just how much crap the media will let him get away with. “Hey Rahm — bet you 20 bucks I can get a Truther communist appointed to an environmental oversight position.”

Birthers at the town halls … and Truthers in the White House. Which has gotten more press coverage?

NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) – An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the government had foreknowledge and “consciously failed to act,” with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation.

Follow the link and you’ll find Jones’s signature the 46th at the bottom. And no, there’s no chance that he was mistakenly added to the list. I’ve been trying to come up with a joke all morning about what sort of leftist lunatic might be next on O’s hiring list, but I simply can’t top “Truther communist.” Congratulations, Barry: You’re now parody-proof.

When the GOP eventually takes back Congress, one of its first acts should be a statute or even a constitutional amendment, if necessary to avoid separation-of-powers concerns, requiring “czars” to sit through the same Senate confirmation process that cabinet appointees are made to endure. Obama’s exploited that loophole at least twice now, once to install Jones and the other to make this nut our new King of Science or whatever, and the most ethical Congress evah won’t rouse itself to inquire. If the president can’t be trusted not to appoint Truther filthbags then he’ll simply have to be checked and balanced, right, Bush-hating Democrats? Exit question: Will Jones be gone before today’s airing of “Glenn Beck”? If so, what does it say about Obama that evidently communists are fit to be czars but Truther communists are a bridge too far?

You guys act like the “Green Jobs Czar” is like the Vice President or Secretary of State position. It is just a honorary position for a constituent, nothing more. These Czars are less than evean a Ambassador position.

Hey let’s investigate the communist leanings of the White House Chef and Housekeeper next. Sure this guy is a nut but so might the Housekeeper be a nut. They have equal status in the Obama White House.

Decider on September 3, 2009 at 4:05 PM

Per Slate.com (hardly a rightwing site):

Jones’s responsibility is to work within all the government agencies to make sure the $30 billion from the stimulus earmarked for green-jobs funding attached to it gets “doled out appropriately.”

Yeah, I guess the WH Chef and WH housekeepers are now also responsible for appropriating BILLIONS of tax payer money…

How dense can you possible get??

Norwegian on September 3, 2009 at 4:18 PM

This is just not proven, at all. Hot Air should refrain from such gutter games. You’ll need to provide more evidence than his name on a list.

Seixon on September 3, 2009 at 4:24 PM

Makes sense, anyone that irrational would come to other irrational conclusions. What’s worse, is Jones seeks to undermine the same government that allows him, in the name of free speech, to spew such garbage. That’s about as irrational as one can get.

We need to burn her local Maine offices as well as Washington. Call her now before she caves to the libs. Call her now!!!!

Charlie is getting very dense. Must be his liberal mind regaining control.

The issue is not the speech. Its not even Obama. Much. The issue Charlie is the requirement that children listen to this guy, and that teachers have been given a study guide by the Federal government. This is a flagrant usurpation of local and States-rights to teach what they feel is appropriate. Finally, since you haven’t been paying attention, speeches by Obama eventually become speeches about Obama. He is obviously a very persuasive orator, but with very little substance. So essentially, children and adults just hear bumper sticker slogans without any critical thinking. And listening to a political hack like Obama without critical thinking (which is much of the public school system) is akin to listening to propaganda. Schmuck.

If this weren’t some bizarro world, Van Jones wouldn’t have A) been hired in the first place, B) made it past Beck’s initial scrutiny and C) would definately be fired after being outed as a Truther.

But no, we are living in a country where the President villifies anyone who dare disagree with him and surrounds himself with extreme radicals so his own radical ambitions seem tame by comparison.

Remember,Obama’s friends Ayers and Dohrn thought Manson was a tuned in dude and developed a 3 finger salute in honor of the fork Kasabian stuck in Leno Labianca’s stomach after they carved the word “war” in it.

Good thing the press was spending all that time digging in Sara Palin’s dumpsters trying to prove if Trig was her real baby.
Hate for them to have investigated all the marxist radical friends and associates of Mr. Hope and Change.

Baxter Greene on September 3, 2009 at 6:51 PM

Van Jones also said that by warning Californians of wildfires via cellphone- The State intended for latinos to die. Burned alive in the fire.

Yup- he thinks California burnt up latinos on purpose.

Uhh, no. Fox has been running the story this afternoon complete with signed letter by Van Jones to substantiate his involvement in blaming the U.S. for “allowing 9/11 to happen” – in other words, Van Jones is a Truther, he thinks the eeeevull U.S. attacked it’s own citizens and then the eeeevulll U.S. government covered it up. Oh, and Van Jones thinks the eeeevullll U.s. government is controlled by the Jooooooooss and needs to be destroyed and “something new” put in it’s place.

Well, thank Almighty God again if that does occur. However, the problem remains afterward and that is Van Jones, a very bad man, loose among our society. I just saw a video spot on Fox which shows Valerie Jarrett (Obama’s Advisor, says she’s the architect of his politics [I paraphrase]) praising Van Jones.

So I doubt that even if removed from the Czar position that Van Jones will be too far removed from Obama. Remember those Wednesday night parties?

atheling on September 3, 2009 at 1:37 PM

I doubt that he’s very secret about it.

Says all anyone need do – to understand what he’s about (Obama says) – is to look at who “surrounds” him.

Valerie Jarrett (just mentioned, previous comments) is a big enthusiast of Van Jones. What does that say about Jarrett, who ALREADY has a highly compromised background? And Obama for maintaining Jarrett as key advisor?

If GLENN BECK, you know, the guy that the liberals and other enemies of the United States and all things CAPITALISM are attacking, was the one that brought this to ALLAH’S attention, would ALLAH actually take it seriously or would he make a snarky remark, as is his usual reply to anything GB?

Right, I read now (previous comments) others have noticed this, too. The actual Villian in the curtains appears to be Valerie Jarrett, who has gathered together such an ugly, monstrous group of people (including Obama at this rate) using “non U.S.” funding.

There are reasons WHY Obama’s Presidential campaign fundraising has never been fully explored and exposed, but I think many of us Americans know this by now.

Listen closely to what Van Jones is saying. Listen carefully.

The whole Obama Admin. including affiliated, associated “activism” groups and orgs, is pushing (to use one of their trendy terms) toward a remake of the U.S. and it isn’t based upon the Judeo-Christian point of view.

Where is it ever established or explained that “Eco-Capitalism” is CAPITALISM?

Answer: no where, at no time.

Calling communism “eco-capitalism” is just the latest version of calling “bad” “good” and vice-versa. It’s nothing more than more Jive Talk by a Jiver from a podium going for the Big Celebrity. Like Lenin, like Castro, like Hugo Chavez, like Ahmadinajad, it’s just all Jive Talk — the methodology is to first seize upon a respected term used by Capitalists and Free Men and then to “readapt it” to your own, counter-purpose intents.

Obama engages in this manipulation of terms consistently and when he’s not doing that, he’s flirting with vulnerable, easily misled, easily manipulated people. Communists seem to rely on these tactics relatively consistently.

If memory serves, Van Jones is a Yale Law graduate.

Has he ever taken a bar exam? Has he ever practiced law? Has he ever argued a case in court? Does he at least have a license to practice?

Why not? What does Yale Law expect of its grads?

Arbalest on September 3, 2009 at 2:17 PM

Obviously, the whole admissions process to certain “Ivy League” schools in the last few decades has not been a sensible, necessarily excellence-focused process.

You can graduate any legacy student as long as someone pays their costs at any school, particularly at the Ivy Leagues (example, John Kerry at Yale and Obama at Harvard Law).

At this rate, there’s no way I’d ever allow any child of mine or anyone in my sphere of influence (if at all possible) to be exposed to whatevertheheck it is at these two schools (also Columbia, unfortunately) that is producing quite so many extremely troubled persons.

Lourdes on September 3, 2009 at 8:59 PM

It’s certainly interesting that boycotters are allying with an avowed communist to attack free speech.

Perhaps they might want to rethink their positions.

I feel America is going to get a little uppity now…

Uhh, no. Fox has been running the story this afternoon complete with signed letter by Van Jones to substantiate his involvement in blaming the U.S. for “allowing 9/11 to happen”

Lourdes on September 3, 2009 at 7:01 PM

Ralph Nader signed it too, does that mean he’s a Truther? Stop taking things out of context and pretending they’re something other than what they are. Like Nader, Van Jones could have other reasons for wanting a new 9/11 investigation than some of the reasons stated in the letter.

Some evidence of Van Jones actually stating in any way shape or form that he believes any of the Truther claims about 9/11 would be a nice start.

How about speeches and his own words, put into nice, neat quotes, tied up with a little red and yellow bow? Oh, that’s right, liberals don’t deal in FACTS.

Where are the quotes and speeches where he says what Truthers do? Please cite, thanks. Also, I’m not a liberal – just someone who is an independent thinker. Try it some time instead of chugging down whatever suits your fancy.

NOW he’s saying he’s not a truther?

So that’s some other Van Jones on the petition, or someone planted his name there?

Also, “I’m sorry if I offended anyone with my past statements…” about communism, marxism, etc?

“I’m sorry if I offended anyone” is not the same thing as, “I have renounced communism, etc.”

Daggett on September 3, 2009 at 9:52 PM

…if necessary to avoid separation-of-powers concerns, requiring “czars” to sit through the same Senate confirmation process that cabinet appointees are made to endure.

Screw that.

I can’t wait for a Republican President to be elected……..

We can have – lower tax czar, nuclear energy czar, petroleum czar, kill the NEA czar, illegal immigration czar, enviro-nazi prosecution czar………..

The possibilities are endless, and the precedent has been set.

I want a Kill the ACLU Czar

Van Jones is the soul of the Obama administration. Marxists, insane nutjobs and malignant narcissists have the keys to the Treasury. It’s time to throw them out and into jail. It’s time for Republicans to take names and numbers to fuel the endless investigations of corruption and treason that will follow this whacko President and all of his lawless thugs.
