Van Jones has resigned

This administration made a mistake in hiring Jones. Beck didn't sign Van Jones name on that truther movement.
BTW it was this site that broke the story not GB:

Show us the error of our ways.



Van Jones was hired for this job because he wrote a book called "The Green Collar Economy". The job he was hired for was consulting on the creation of green jobs. So he was ostensibly an expert in the field he was hired to work in. In reality, this was a hack job created to repay political favors and make Obama look more green.

Who might you ask would publish a self avowed communist such as Van Jones and his book published "The Green Collar Economy"? Harper Collins.

Who owns Harper Collins? News Corp.

What else does News Corp own? Fox News.

So Van Jones is such a commie he has his book published by Rupert Murdoch.

How can Glenn Beck continue to work for an organization that published communists like Van Jones?


The reason this was a total non-story is because it was a total non-job. The man had no power. When he became a distraction, he went away. No great loss, it's not like he was an important member of the administration.

I'm still waiting to hear the "*censored* Glen Beck made up." Between calling Republicans *censored* on camera, signing a petition stating he believed the government knew about and allowed 9/11 to happen and saying he was a communist after the Rodney King verdict, he dug his own grave with his big mouth. And if you believe he wasn't told to resign, I've got some GM stock I'd like to sell to you.

Van Jones was never in prison.

Van Jones has never been convicted of anything.

Van Jones was not arrested at the WTO.

There's 3 right there.

I agree with you, he was told (ordered) to resign. When a 4th tier adviser becomes a source for your opponents to focus on he is always told to fall on his sword.


Odd coincidence? Van Jones book comes out in paperback on September 29th (published by Harper Collins (owned by newscorp)). I bet he sells a million of them (thanks to Glenn Beck).

Nobody needs to make anything up about Van Jones, just listening to what he says proves he is full of it.

I saw the videos of Van Jones damming himself. I saw the videos on Glen Beck - Did you? :roll: If you did and still believe him to be worthy of any policy position in the Federal Govenment, then you might not qualify for a Federal policy position either.

As far a book deals - I'm sure the Eastern Establishment Book Club, of which Harper Collins is a member, is interested in only one thing $$$$$$$$. They must have thought it was a good or topical book. They are proably printing more right now.

It’s tough to have a discussion with someone who ignores the facts.

Was his job a policy position?

I doubt it.

It's like discussing science with you.

No reason, only faith.

I got to run to a picnic (I'm out in California this week)

Later all.

Well I never heard any of those three accusations until you just wrote them and I've followed this story since it broke last week. I don't watch Beck. If he said these things and they are untrue, then shame on him and Fox for allowing it. But that's not what brought Van Jones down. It was his poor judgement and is big mouth. And also since you seem to be obsessing over the fact that he is black, that also had nothing to do with it.

I don't concede the "policy" but for the sake of argument. Just delete that word from my response. But let me add:

"then you might not qualify for any government position"

I bet he was better vetted than Sarah Palin with her pregnant HS student daughter and her secessionist husband.

Sarah Palin has never worked for the Federal Government. It turns out Van Jones was a political appointment and did make policy. I think he was called "green czar."
I really don't know what the far lefts problem with her is. I would love to have seen her as VP instead of that buffoon Joe Biden. Talk about having a big mouth!
