UPDATE: Obama adviser Van Jones resigns amid controversy!

Whether the POTUS fires Van Jones or asks for his resignation shouldn't even be a question in America. The fact that we are debating such a thing is evidence of our sorry state of affairs. A self-avowed radical Communist should not have made it to the White House, be it by appointment or election.

The watchdogs are being outnumbered and the wolves are taking over. Have faith fellow Americans, for the sons and daughters of the Greatest Generation are among us and will save our sorry butts, from ourselves.

"[Van Jones'] extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate."- Rep. Mike Pence, R-IN.

Why aren't the major news outlets and scores of Representatives on both sides of the aisle reporting and/or calling for the resignation of Anthony "Van" Jones?

The troubling details that have emerged calls into question not only the Marxist ideals of the Green Jobs Czar, but more importantly, it continues to expose Barack Obama's penchant for radical and anti-American affiliations.

You may have not grasped the gravity of or cared about Obama's 20+ year affiliation with Jeremiah Wright, or his association with William Ayers, Tony Rezko and others, but Barack Obama is no longer the candidate he is the president. We cannot afford the luxury of burying our head in the sand, no matter how blissful.

Van Jones was appointed by Barack Obama in March 2009, as the Special Adviser for Green Jobs, also known as the Green Jobs Czar. This was with the blessings of his Senior Adviser and close friend, Valerie Jarrett.

White House Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about the fate of Van Jones and simply replied, "He continues to work for this administration."

What on Van Jones' résumé could have attracted Barack Obama? Let's examine a few nuggets:

  • Member of the board of Apollo Alliance, one of the founders is also a close Obama associate, Jesse Jackson Jr. The NY affiliate is headed by domestic terrorist, Jeff Jones. Jeff Jones founded the Weathermen with Bill Ayers.
  • Founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).
  • Co-founded Ella Baker Human Rights Center. His adviser was Elizabeth Martinez, a Maoist and board member of Movement for a Democratic Society, alongside terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn.
  • Advocated for a nationwide "resistance" against police, accusing them of using the 9/11 attacks to carry out policies of torture.
  • Founded the Bay Area Cop Watch. More on organized anti-police activities here.
  • Supporter of Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, a convicted cop killer. Obama's Green Jobs Czar even disrupted a special youth conference in Oakland, CA to rally for Mumia.

"I met all these young radical people of color, I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And I was, like, this is what I need to be a part of. I spent the next 10-years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary" -Anthony "Van" Jones, special adviser to the president of the United States.

The president's special adviser also joined ranks with "9/11 Truthers" alleging that the Bush administration was complicit in the terrorist attacks.

Shouldn't they be giving Bush a fist bump over such a maneuver? I am surprised the terrorist embracing radicals would complain about such a conspiracy, oh right I get it...they have the copyright on anti-American crimes.

Not convinced the Green Jobs Czar embraces Marxism? Van Jones reportedly named his son after Marxist revolutionary Amilcar Cabral.

The Obama administration is top-heavy with radicals, more on that in a follow-up article. In the meant time call the White House and demand the removal of one, Anthony Van Jones.

Obama is this big forward thinking guy, riding high on hope & change. He saunters in, changes terms such as the war on terror, jihadists because he doesn't like the sound of it...guess he likes the sound of "Czar"
