Not sure if this has been posted already:


President Obama's environmental adviser Van Jones resigned from his post late Saturday evening after he came under fire for a series of inflammatory statements he made about Republicans, the Associated Press reported.

Jones, Obama's green jobs "czar," was caught on tape in an expletive-packed rant, directly attacking Republicans in the Senate who he said abused their majority position in the past to push legislation through. He told Politico after the statements were released that the comments were "inappropriate" and "offensive."

"They do not reflect the experience I have had since joining the administration," Jones said in the statement.

The White House kept mum about Jones Friday, telling reporters only Jones would remain as part of Obama's administration.

I think this is great!

How could you be a Jobs Czar, but have never previously created a single job in the first place?

1 down, and a few more to go. Cass Sunnstein, and Mark Llyod shouldn't be too far behind.

RR, so if you believe Obama is going to be a dictator, which is what FOX is promoting,
do you think this is indicative of a dictatorship?

Actually if you are aware you will notice that the GOP attacks everything just looking for something to stick.

Did they hit paydirt this time, maybe they did. But that doesn't stop them from finding an attack angle on every action.

This is a political tactic which grates on my nerves, no matter who is the perpetrator.

i already know how you feel about this issue, but you should remove your Reagan and Bush Speeches to children. theres a huge difference between those and the one Obama wants to give. Reason being, they didnt make the children in every school in the country sit down and watch the president's speech, this was only in one school, not broadcasted to every school. Obama wants to broadcast to EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL. big difference.

and its funny to hear olbermann call republicans "fear of a black man".

still playin the race card olbey? gtfo.

So do you support the political tactic of attacking an opponent at every action? non-stop? Even when it means being completely intellectually dishonest?

Ok so you do.

Pity... I sure don't. It doesn't resonate with me at all, no matter who is doing it.

I think it is the lowest form of politics there is.

Give me a break. Van Jones was the biggest racist, white people hating, avowed communist, piece of trash talking garbage to be quoted on you tube.

WHAT-EVER! If this were a Republican resigning and Fox news blamed "Democratic attacks" as the cause you would be slandering Fox news and saying the Republican got what he deserved.

This guy got caught with his pants down. And it was on tape. And you just can't admit that a Democrat screwed up - OHHHH NO... It's the REPUBLICANS fault because they attack EVERYTHING.

I was actually starting to think you had an open mind, hunka, but this proves you are nothing but a disgusting shill for Democrats.

It's not "politics" at all. It's exposing lies and an unspoken, even denied, agenda to wrest control away from political debate.

None of these "czars" was subject to "advice and consent," as would a Cabinet member, although they wield cabinet-level power over policy and can even usurp Congress' authority by regulation instead of legislation.

Just consider a few of them:

Carol Browner, Climate Czar, formerly of Socialist International, supporter of “global governance,” says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.

Cass Sunstein, Regulatory czar, believes: “ There is no liberty without dependency.”

John Holdren, Presidential Science Advisor, advocates America’s “de-industrialization.” He says: ”[L]aws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution.”
"Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential.”

Mark Lloyd, FCC Diversity czar, wants to enforce “localism” with fines and fees. In other words, the Fairness Doctrine” will be used to politically monitor and punish broadcasters.

Ezekiel Emmanuel, Health Care czar, is a proponent of the “complete lives” regime that health care resources should be allocated by age and to “productive” Americans. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia.”

Daniel Chu, Energy Secretary, has “nightmares about coal.” He advocates that Americans pay “European prices” for gasoline and energy.

Jeff Jones, Weather Underground co-founder, with mentor Bill Ayers. The Apollo Alliance, under Jeff Jones' direction, created Barack Obama’s stimulus bill that absolutely no one in Congress read, but Obama swore that if it wasn’t passed immediately, the world would end.

Here’s what Jeff Jones KNOWS about Obama’s agenda:

“He is setting Clinton up to be the face of his effort to end the Iraq war. He is going to sucessfully extort concessions from Detroit. He will convince Congress to pass a major stimulus package.

These various initiatives, which will collectively set the nation on a path towards redistributing financial resources downward, are presented as unconnected pieces of legislation but actually they are interlocking components of Obama's coherent multi-layered agenda. His centrist appointments are a smokescreen; they co-opt the moderate center. Even Lenin would be impressed!”

Van Jones, communist and founder of STORM, whose philosophy says: “All of STORMS members developed a basic understanding of and commitment to Revolutionary Marxist Policies.”


Criticizing THAT is not politics. It is preservation of a Constitutional Republic.

Deny ignorance!

One down and a whole lot more to go.

Well, I woke up this morning and this was one of the first pieces of news I saw, and it made my day.

Not surprising that it was announced at that quietest news hour. An attempt to downplay it, but none too soon.

I hope that the public outcry of disgust over this racist's appointment had a lot to do with his 'resignation' (firing), It shows that the peoples' voice is starting to be heard.

Any little effect that we had, as small as it may have been, on the removal of this fool, worked. Take our voices and multiply them one hundred, one thousand times, across the nation, as we can have a positive impact on what we want our nation to look like. There is no room for openly blatant racists in our gov't. Do you hear us, Obama?!?! Yes we can!! And we will!!

One down, more to go. Some have been mentioned here. Clean them out, one at a time.

Thanks, America!

Fantastic News. Great find!
What a racist sack of excrement.
(Unfortunately, there are many more where he came from...)

BTW : schrodingers dog
The clock on your avatar is striking 9/11...

Czars are unconstitutional and with the abuse of appointing czars that we've seen recently, it's about time to put a stop to it altogether. Now, if one of those strong congressmen/women will stand up and call the President out on that and many more of his unfulfilled promises. And release some documents off of that long list that are currently sealed. Why sealed?

Get this, A cop pulls you over... Starts asking pertinent questions to the traffic stop... Guess what? if they think that you are hiding something they at will least they'll ask... "What do you have to hide if you are innocent?"

Same here with our fearful leader. What do you have to hide? It's all good, bro.
