Van Jones and the Gathering Storm

Imagine, for a moment, if an adviser to George W. Bush had called Democrats “assholes.”
Yeah, that would have gone over well.

America’s Right

The People’s March to a Marxist Utopia continues, thanks in part to the Squatter at 1600’s choice of Monsieur Van Jones for his “Green Czar.” (As an aside, is the jury still out as to where, exactly, the Constitution contemplates such executive apparatchiks immune from the Senate’s “advise and consent” role?). For those ingénue Obots out there who thought that the Guy from Chicago’s coziness with Bill Ayers was but an irrelevant dalliance since it was only part of his rebellious, distant past, get set for this Jones dude, who is very much a part of Obama’s present. A scary part.

Where to start? Van Jones has been installed by the Squatter-in-Chief to function as his “czar” on “green jobs,” with the title “Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation for the White House Council on Environmental Quality.” All bow to the Green Goddess. The acronym for that position–SAGJEIWHCEQ–is a tough one to pronounce. However, prior to his addition to the present regime, Jones was the founder and leader of a radical group with a much easier acronym, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement — or, as it was known on the street, “STORM.”

STORM. A fitting acronym for this radical. Remember, you can take the radical out of the fire, but you can’t take the fire out of the radical.

The goal of Jones’ Marxist group was to resist “U.S. imperialism” worldwide, standing proudly with the likes of Karl Marx and V. Lenin in support of a “commitment to the fundamental ideas of Marxism-Leninism.” Conservative/Libertarian television and radio host Glenn Beck recently noted that the STORM manifesto–innocuously titled “Reclaiming Revolution”–includes such ideological nuggets as “[w]e [STORM supporters] agreed with Lenin’s analysis of the state and the party” and “we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-tung and Amilcar Cabral.” Oh yeah, and as Beck–perhaps the only person in the mainstream press who has done a phenomenal job in assessing the growing cabal of czars–has pointed out, Jones actually named his son after Cabral, the late Marxist revolutionary leader of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands.

And if you want to confirm these facts, you’d better act quickly, because when the Marxist past (and a cynic might wildly speculate, the Marxist present) of Jones began to surface, the STORM manifesto was quickly scrubbed from the Internet. For the moment, however, a copy of the manifesto can still be accessed in PDF archival form. It is quite a work.

The STORM manifesto reads a lot like Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, the 1974 tome by Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones and Celia Sojurn which they dedicated to the Weather Underground, that peaceful “agent of change,” the group with the benign objective of the destruction of the United States. Pundits are still bewildered that Prairie Fire never made it to the top of the New York Times best-seller list, as it is something of a communist manifesto roadmap for the attack upon and destruction of “American imperialism,” as they call it. Right up the Times’ alley.

Recall that Obama, the mainstream media’s Anointed One and continuing premium swooning material for the lazy-of-mind (although there are signs of waning euphoria), backpedaled furiously during the campaign in an attempt to distance himself from Ayers, whose acts he “deplored,” but whose association and relationship he refused to then disavow and to this day continues to refuse to disavow. But with the election over, and with the task of putting the nation onto a path of destruction from which it will be unable to recover even after the Squatter is gone, who better to install than Jones and folks like him? And if you doubt that to be the objective of Jones and his enablers, you’re wrong.

Please note, dear readers, that Jones’ Marxist sentiments are neither cooled nor ancient, although they seem to go back a long way. Last February, he was slamming the nation for “eco-apartheid” and advocating a “spreading of the wealth” through “change in the whole system:

“The challenge is, will you settle for eco-apartheid . . . I don’t believe your generation will do that. So you are the final backstop . . . and this country will never be more idealistic than you are.”

“[W]e can power the country with clean coal, or we could have unicorns pull our cars for us, you know, all day. We could have that, too. Equally fictitious, equally fantastical, equally ludicrous. You know? So, you know, we could have the tooth fairy bring us our energy at night. I mean, equally ludicrous. There is no such thing as the tooth fairy, there is no such thing as unicorns, and there is no such thing as clean coal.”

The wealth-spreading, “green for some” language sounds a lot to me like Barack Obama’s chat with Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail. And these tendencies run deep. In 2002, Jones was a keynote speaker at a rally at People’s Park in Berkeley, Calif., to mark the national launch of Not In Our Name, a Maoist, terrorist-supporting, anti-war group founded by Revolutionary Communist Party member C. Clark Kissinger (no relation to Henry). And the list goes on and on. Like with Ayers.

In short, this dude seems to be fitting right in with the president’s overall plans for the remaking (a.k.a. destruction) of the United States of America as we have known it. If the guy who concocted STORM is now at the White House, if he’s so willing to compare the availability of green technology to the plight of blacks in South Africa, what’s next?

    More "social justice" rhetoric… Native Americans are going to prosper from wind and solar farms, ex-cons are going to be transitioned from prison into green jobs, everyone who was ever wronged will get theirs and then some. In order to "fix" the environment (which may or may not need fixing) we have to change how we treat each other, and we have to "fix" the social problems of the past? This is the CHANGE Obama promised you… not what you thought you were getting?

    Don't miss Van Jones NOT DENYING he's a Marxist, and slamming capitalism in the process. Last 30 seconds:

    I wonder at what point the american people wake up. There are far too many people in this administration that are involved in these wacko organizations, for us to look the other way any longer.

    Just what is it, these people hate about america? Is it the idea that we the people have mostly earned everything they've gotton?

    I don't mind giving a hand up, but the hand outs need to stop. We need to have some sort of revolution, and I hope its a peaceful one, but it needs to happen, we need to have our voice heard, and need to be understood.

    Sigh, my six feet joke was censored.


    That's right, it was.

    And I've been perfectly clear on this in the past — I'll tolerate the occasional f-bomb, but I WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY REFERENCE TO THE INFLICTION OF BODILY HARM, OR THE MURDER, OF ANY GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL.

    I don't care if it is a joke.

    I don't want things that incite violence, that perhaps could even be misconstrued as such. We are under the microscope, people. All it takes is one jackass, and we will be marginalized as racists, as bigots, as blood-thirsty pricks.

    You're better than that, people.

    Got it?

    Jeff, as I pointed out before, your concern – unless you are concerned for your own safety – is misguided. It absolutely does not matter what we do, write or think: for THEM, we are still a bunch of racists, bigots and blood-thirsty pricks. No amount of self-control, self-censoring and self-bashing will change this simple fact. And if their microscope doesn't find anything to condemn, well, there are plenty of young, computer savvy hotheads to fake as much "right wing lunacy" material as it takes.

    The people that BO hangs around with have no class and yet want everyone to respect them. I can only imagine the outcry if Bush had said this about the Dems or if he had scheduled a talk to all of the school children. I asked my representatives to explain to me why we suddenly have Czars. So far no answer. No wonder BO is such a hurry to have all of his agenda passed. He is afraid that we may catch on before he is finished. I only hope the country can repair the damage he will do.
    Yesterday, our local news had a clip on how the government will soon be telling us how we will be able to light our homes. I know they mean the new curly-que bulbs and we have been replacing the old ones as they burn out but I resent the fact that I will be told what I have to do in my own home. I'm sure there will be a light bulb czar and his band of men to check out everyone's house.

  10. JEFF SCHREIBER says:


    Threaten to put everybody six feet below the ground. That makes us look rational. That REALLY helps our arguments.

    What does calling anybody a NIGGER accomplish, Rix? How does that help explain, to those still on the fence about this president and his government, the fallacies of his policies and his ideology? How does that help? What does that lend to the conversation? How does that bring someone down to our side of the debate?

    How does commenting about how you'd like to rape Nancy Pelosi really shed any more light upon her refusal to listen to the American people? Or about how you'd like to see Barney Frank contract AIDS and die? Or Harry Reid get hit by a train?

    (Those aren't Rix's. These are just some of the ones I can remember and feel comfortable using as an example here.)

    The left can make up anything they want, for sure, but at least the veracity of it can be denied. You folks are setting us up for failure, and you're doing so unnecessarily.

    I will not tolerate overt racism here. You can point out racism in our culture all you want. You can show everyone the double-standards. However, exhibiting the same behavior yourself only detracts from the work that I'm practically killing myself to do here. All the effort put forth by so many average, everyday concerned Americans can be undermined by a single, genuinely racist asshole.

    Rix, you in particular are an intelligent man. You can argue. You know your history. There is no reason to stay unnecessarily offensive or combative.

    And it's not about being too nice. It's not. It's about using the truth, not using matters of race and gender. During the last election, I lambasted John McCain because he did not use the truth against Barack Obama, because he did not highlight his radical past, his associations, etc. That stuff had NOTHING to do with race.

    It's gotta be about proving the left WRONG, not proving them RIGHT.

    Common sense, people. We're WINNING this thing. Let's not ruin it.

    Wasn't a threat, it was a double entendre…. he wants green, look up to some green…. wow I am such a radical…… God transport me back to 1776, PLEASE.

  12. Randy Wills says:

    I agree with you, Jeff, and I've said so in every way possible in the articles that I've submitted to AR. To me, it is obvious that those who promote violence, if in power, would create a form of rule no better than what most of us fear the Obama administration is fomenting.

    The central organizing principle of the Constitution was derived from a belief in the "laws of nature and of God". I see none of that spiritual conviction in those who would advocate violence as a means of redress.

    I believe that there is nothing that the current administration wants more than for there to be an "violent incident" that will "demand" a harsh response. That having been said, there is a gnawing fear in my gut that, no matter what we do, it's going to happen, and when it does, those who suggest violence are going to wonder what in the world they were thinking.

  13. Sam says:

    Actually there are a great many Blacks that do NOT like Obama! This isn't about race. Even though some might think it. It's us against the ones that want to turn our country into a socialist commie country. I agree there are some trying to make it a race issue. If you are White? You must be a racist if you are against the chosen one! If you are Black? You must be an uncle tom to be against the chosen one! That's what the REAL racists want you to believe. We are all different, but have the same reasons to dislike the chosen one and his pals! They are the most vile corrupt bunch out there!

  14. Claudia says:

    I think that the majority of us are so frsutrated now and feel that there is NOTHING anyone will listen to or do that will alleviate all this pain we all see that is being caused by all those people that are stuffing every bit of their agendas down our collective throats, that we are beginning to feel we have to get more graphic in our wording of the problems and the solution. We are very tired of not BEING REPRESENTED and being UNDER REPRESENTED or ILL REPRESENTED, and it is getting to all of us. There are many lawyers that have been trying to put every conceivable type of stop to all of this, but they are not getting the job done, because no one will do it by LAW, so pretty soon, there will have to be other alternatives to get it handled and that is very scary to all of us.

    WE SEE OUR COUNTRY BEING SOLD DOWN THE COMMUNIST DRAIN and are very afraid of what will happen to anything that is left over, after Obama has his say and destroys it all. We're scared and the fear is getting to everyone of us in different degrees of anger, fear, hurt and helplessness.

    You do such a great job. I'm glad it is not in you to stoop to the left's level. You are a true stand up guy and I truly appreciate all your hard work.

    Rix, you'll feel better when you get that IKEA furniture together!

    Meanwhile, the Secret Service has a way of knocking on a person's door and taking him into custody for what they deem a threat to the president's life.

    No one wants that happening…to any of us. We're here to share ideas, findings, and a bit of humor here and there; and we certainly don't want Jeff or his site to become a target. Jeff knows his stuff, and that's one reason we all like to come here–for the truth.

    Jeff was DELIGHTED when he returned from Poland to find the American people waking up, looking around, and asking each other and their Congressmen "WTF?! NO!"

    Jeff is right–we are winning.

    realize that a threat o anyone's freedom of speech is a threat to their own.

    by the way any sponser pulling out of Beck's program are only hurting themselves since Beck's audience is far larger coupled with paid ACORNS can send emails, but truly committed beck viewers will pull their tangible dollars out of the pockets of sponsers by not supporting them, canceling their insurance, etc. ACORNS wont do any such thing because paid loyalty has no passion.

    First thing first: the violence I advocate is always directed against external foes and never against fellow citizens, no matter how misguided or even malicious. I have always warned that the worst thing that may possibly happen to this country is a murder of a prominent Democratic politician, especially Obama. Godless and cruel as I am, I do not mind any of them dying a painful, humiliating death, as long as that death is not a result of a traceable crime.

    Second, regarding my use of the n-word. Remember Alinsky's book? Laugh and ridicule are the most powerful weapons in political struggle. On this particular front, liberals win by a knockout because conservative stubbornly insist on being gentlemen. Following Alinsky's book to a tee, liberals chain us to our own, self-imposed rules and limitations while showing no similar restraint. Remember the election? Obama's race was a taboo but McCain's age was a staple joke; Obama kids were off limits but Sarah Palin's were fair game. Conservatives MUST see through and this ploy, and break it: NOTHING should be free from ridicule, no liberal holy cow should remain unslaughtered and no Voldemort unnamed.

    Come to think of it, the whole outrage about the n-word reeks of cultivated partisan hypocrisy: black people themselves have no problem whatsoever calling each other "nigger".

    And Jeff, please, you did not have to bring up the idea of raping Nancy Pelosi. No one is THAT desperate. :)

    about your censorship Jeff.
    you have my respect on that one.
    i dont agree with the guy or his administration but it is now up to us more than ever to hold the line.

    this country has been done enough damage recently with this new branding of democrats and the intimidation factor from Panthers at voting places to the Van Jones' types. WE NEED TO STAND TALLER.

    THE BEST WAY we can do that is to elect people like SARAH PALIN who stands for integrity and respect and the best life for americans.

    i appreciate a responsible blog.
    nothing less will only be less.

    i like coming here and i know how frustrating it is when one has an opinion on other blogs and when the other side is left with only facts to deal with they lash out calling you a dirty name or claiming you are racist. it is very frustrating.

    this is a great site BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR MORALS.

    'sorry other "anonymous but i call it like i see it." i have always believed that in this life the only way to show fairness to a fellow human being is by being fair no matter how it helps or hurts you at the time. REASON? the rules you set to advance yourself could be the rules you face that will hurt you down the road, a-la-Ted Kennedy voting to keep Mitt Romney from nameing a replacement had Kerry won. 'seems that little stance came visiting on Kennedy's death bed?

    when we think we "got away with it," we didnt. Unfairness WILL be revisited – you just dont know when. Just ask people who beat their wives and escaped jail for years only to be jailed later and more harshly for something they may or may not have done. GOD RULES IN HIS OWN TIME. BUT HE RULES.

    (…long post, huh? sorry it just kept going and going and goin….:-)

    LETS keep it together people. respect for each life is the preservation of life, imo.

    i encourage not to think of this remark as a fighting point but in the light in which it is intended. here it is:

    perhaps you might kindly rethink what you wrote – really think about it and ask how much good is that thinking doing. in my opinion it takes loving and caring peple to show others that we can fight the better fight without stooping to their level. instead challenge the to raise to yours and or beyond.

    i have gotten the feeling from some in this administration and a large amount of their supporters that they need to "get even" fro whatever happened back in the 60s before some of us were even born. that is wrong, imo. you do not CORRECT racism or injustices by continuing the same practices. you stop it by breaking it – STOPPING it.

    i cannot take back how my great granddad treated your great grandDad, but it is within my power to treat you according to the person you have become. that is MY contribution.

    I want to recommended an action that everyone can take and not even leave their homes. I wanted to recommend prayer to counter the fear and the anger and frustration. It is the one thing that can and will work. It is the one way to protect ourselves by letting the "Big Guy" and his "Staff" take care of it. It has been proven to work over time…Moses called upon the Lord and he freed the Israelites from Egypt. We can call on the Lord and he will free us from the false messiah. It will take all of us and our neighbors to do it, but it will work. Hope this helps!
