I just came across this and thought it was worth posting…

 

Glenn Beck is among only a handful of people whom I trust to get the the most unbiased information from, and they all happen to be affiliated with the same news stationFoxNews.  I agree with every word Beck says here, and as far as Van JonesWell, let’s just say that if it weren’t for racists like him, racism would only be a minor blip on the radar screen.  Black racists like Jones keep racism alive with comments like he spews from his own mouth, as you will hear in this audio, and Obama and his administration was OK with the likes of this moron.  Go figure…

I’m sure I’ll be posting lots of updated stuff in the coming days.  I do have a few more things on my mind that I’d like to add to this post, but it’ll have to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday.  In the meantime, here’s something you might find interesting…

They’re falling one by one out of this administration.  Just goes to show you the poor choices Obama has made.  Van Jones is the latest casualty, and it’s about time the Republicans grew a pair and demanded his resignation or termination.  I don’t think Jones’ words,  "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." are true.  There was no smear campaign against him.  The truth unfolded about his very radical past, and even though our own government chose to ignore it, it surfaced anyway, courtesy of Glenn Beck from FoxNews.  You can’t tell me that the Obama administration and all their radical cronies all asking him to "stay and fight".  They’re probably all pushing him out the door because of the controversy surrounding him, but I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him.  He’s too radical and is infused with too much power from being in the Obama camp to sit this out quietly.  Oh, he’s a pressure cooker right now, and he’ll either join up with the Association of Community Organizations For Reform Now (ACORN), now called Community Organizations International (COI) or will start his own radical organization, and will fight back.  After all, he lost a very cushy job in the Obama administration, and resigning must have ticked him off.  He will blame everyone else, but the person he should…himself!
 
I’m not sure what he accomplished as the Green Jobs Czar.  He certainly didn’t stimulate green jobs.  According to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, there was some bad news regarding green jobs recruiting.  At the National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas, Solis announced that the alternative energy sector could sport a new "industrial revolution" and create "tons" of jobs for minority workers.  Hmmm…what about white workers?  Never mind the fact that no green energy jobs were actually being created, yet Solis has "assured" everyone that in due time, they’ll come.  By the way, employment in the green jobs industry makes up only .05% of all jobs in the U.S.  That’s not much of a revolution now, is it?
 
I’m waiting for Jones to say there’s all this hatred against him "because he’s black".  As I’ve pointed out in previous posts, instead of the Obama administration quieting racism, they are fueling it.  America voted for a black guy which proves America has moved on out of the 60s.  It’s so sad that Obama supporters, the Obama administration and the media are still back there.  This job was especially created for Van Jones, and he did not deserve it.  It boggles the mind that he lasted as long as he did.  If he was white or right, I don’t even think he would have been appointedthe "vetting" would have seen to that.  So much is overlooked for the Democrats and the left.
 
Now Van Jones is out.  Are they going to look seriously at all the other czars that Obama so carelessly appointed?  Are they going to put Obama under that microscope as well?  They should!  Come on, Glenn Beck.  Help me out here!
 
This administration is a sham and yet the one person who saw all this was Glenn Beck from FoxNews.  The White House and all the left wingnuts out there laughed at him, called him every derogatory name they could come up with, but in the end, he is having the last laugh…

Van Jones Resigns

 
Updated 12:53 a.m.
By Garance Franke-Ruta and Anne E. Kornblut

Van Jones, special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, resigned Saturday, following weeks of pressure from the right and a flurry of revelations about his past statements.

"I am resigning my post at the Council on Environmental Quality, effective today," Jones said in a statement dated Sept 5 released around midnight on Sept 6.

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me.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."

White House officials had offered tepid support last week Jones after he issued two public apologies in recent days, one for signing a petition that questioned whether Bush administration officials "may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."
 
Earlier, Jones said he was "clearly inappropriate" in using a crude term to describe Republicans in a speech he gave before joining the administration.
Republicans had demanded further action against Jones. Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.) on Friday called on the adviser to resign or be fired, saying in a statement, "His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate."

Senator Christopher S. Bond (R-Mo.) urged Congress to investigate Jones’s "fitness" for the position, writing in an open letter, "Can the American people trust a senior White House official that is so cavalier in his association with such radical and repugnant sentiments?" On Saturday, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), added his voice as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. "Van Jones has to go", he wrote on his Twitter account.
 
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday that Jones "continues to work for the administration" — but he did not state that the adviser enjoys the full support of President Obama, instead referring all questions to the environmental council where he worked, signaling the resignation was imminent.
 
Jones, a towering figure in the environmental movement, had worked for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, as special adviser for green jobs, since March. He was a civil-rights activist in California before turning his focus to environmental and energy issues, and he won wide praise before joining the Obama administration for articulating a broad vision of a green economy Democrats could embrace.
