HELP! Something Major Garrett Said
9/8/09 | eeevil conservative

Posted on 09/08/2009 12:14:43 PM PDT by eeevil conservative

If I recall correctly, Major Garrett was discussing the Van Jones story and said something I found amazing. I thought he reported that the White House said that they knew about Jones' past and statements. The White House (or the President) claims that Van Jones was up front with them about these things, but they thought it would not be an issue.

Does anyone else recall this?

I don’t recall this, however, anyone with five seconds to do a Google search could have found them.

if I remember this correctly- that would be some big news!

SO they DID know. But now that WE know it is a problem?

If they knew about it and didn’t have a problem with it, then why not come out and say- “Yes, we knew all this and we STILL wanted him on our team.”

At the very least it would be an answer to one of Glenn Beck’s questions he(and we) has been begging to get answers for

According to an article in the American Spectator, Jones was less than honest in his security application:

Did it ever occur to anyone that Van Jones’s controversial statements HELPED get him notice to begin with and caught BHO’s eye? Jones is, after all, cut from the same ideological cloth as BHO, Rev. Wright, Ayers, Dohrn, Alinsky, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Frank Marshall Davis, Hugo Chavez, Oliver Stone, Ed Asner, Sean Penn, etc.

I meant you could have found Jones’ past controversial statements, not what Garrett said.. ie, even a nitwit with half a brain who was willing to look would have known that Jones was a liability. Either the administration didn’t want to know or they turned a blind eye to it.

It was a Valerie Jarett quote to media that they had been watching Jones ever since he started his organizing in Oakland. They were stoked they could get him. My words but basically they knew exactly what he was and who he was. He is one of the triplets, Obama and Rev Wright being the other two.

BO and his “bitter half” are on the same page as Jones. God knows how many others have been brought into our government by this scummy administration.

Take a look at Revrum Wrong way Wright’s video clips—was his verbal sewage met with silence or boos? Hell no-all the fatass imbeciles were falling out—cheering and chortling like there was no tomorrow.

Calypso Louie has routinely sold out public venues like the LA forum, the DC Convention Center, Cobo Hall in Detroit, etc—THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of brain-dead, hate-filled morons cheering him on.

Oh, they knew fully. Their belief was that no one would take notice or care as the MSM didn’t say a word about this guy until he was forced to resign.

You heard right, and as Hannity just said (paraphrased), “The White House knew, and Jones was exactly the person they wanted. They and progressive lib leaders are still praising Jones.” Moreover, they either don’t know or don’t care that they are a dwindling minority of America.

What the Van Jones affair tells us about Obama.Jones isn’t someone who slipped thru the cracks of the vetting process. http://tw0.us/1DR

Scott pointed out earlier today, top Obama aide Valerie Jarrett has said, “So, Van Jones, we were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House; we were watching him. . .for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland.”

Exactly right. If it were not for his radical views he would not have been in the White House in the first place.

Which is what naturally leads to all of the questions about the other 30 or so “Czars” and “Special Advisers” to BHO. We need an in-depth look at this, right now.

These current residents of the Whitehouse are TOTAL creatures of the swamp.

Do you think as they wallow and scheme in the goo and filth they even consider not welcoming a rather minor cheerleader for the swampian cause?

It’s like asking some mobsters why they hired the loud guy with the parking ticket??!!!

Is it just me being paranoid, or doesn’t the WH have to be concerned with how they handle this otherwise, Van Jones might get upset and come back and b-slap them? But according to Beck this morning, he’s still working for Mr. O, just no “czar” title.

The Obamanoids were on Cloud 9 and thought they could do anything and get away with it.

Another example of the corrupt, biased, MSM carry the commies water for them. Until we eliminate this bias, democracy and freedom are dead in this country. The “progressives” are a small minority and yet they are in power today.

There is a Van Jones video I watched the night before he resigned. He sat by himself in a chair and described how green jobs would be reparations for america’s oppression.I make a tiny url out of it and the next day it was gone. It had been scrubbed. I have been looking for anyone who mayhave grabbed it andno luck.

I thought I had dreamed it so I looked at each video to see if I was crazy but Inever did see the video of the same suit and Jones sitting in a chair. To me it was explosive because it detailed why obama and his admin want cap and tax. Reparations not only for US but for the world.

I am thinking it will get us into a new question...

Who else will be resigning once we know about them what the White House knows about them?

If they knew about Jones, and still saw him fit for “CZARSHIP”- what does that say about the their judgment?

What else are they hiding?

How radical does one have to be, before it would give this Admin pause to award Czarship?

This SHOULD be news...

neets, yes, it matters more now because Van Jones and Obama have the same agenda. They have similar backgrounds and radical friends. Van Jones told us what Obama has planned and we cannot let up. If we let Van Jones slip out of media, public will forget Obama chose him for a reason.

From the Valery Jarret / Obama dog and pony show:

“According to administration sources, Sunstein’s office is looking for ways to impose through the regulatory process those Obama White House health care, environmental, and labor policies that do not survive the legislative process.”

“The goal from this White House is to have as much nonspecific language passed by Congress in policy areas like health care and the environment and then use Sunstein’s office to put in place the regulatory language called for by Congress that gets us to where we want to be. It may very well be the most important job in this administration, given the lack of success we may have on Capitol Hill,” says a White House source.”

I am sure you have all read who endorsed VanJones book? Pelosi, Al Gore, Gavin Newsome and a few more libs. Robert Kennedy wrote the forward.

Anyway, Gibbs told white house reporters, major tweeted, Obama isn’t starting over in HC, HR 3200 is it. With all the exemptions for congress, the RFID chips, the non opt out, abortion and illegals covered in a round about way.

Gibbs said the prime time Obamahour will be a 30 minute speech and with applause it will be a hour.

I won’t be watching.

Another reason we need to keep the spotlight on self confessed communist Van Jones,there are many others as bad or worse and obama appointed them because he knew they could not pass vetting just as he said he could not pass senate confirmation either.

Lloyd is another target. Valerie Jarrett is as corrupt as Rezko and they say she is Obama’s alter ego. Did you guy knows Valerie Jarrets father scammed taxpayers and built slums in Chicago. 20 years later Jarrett and Rezko did the same thing with the help of Obama handing tax funds over to them for slums?

And Susan Rice foreign advisor, her father went into banking in Africa and India. Now Africa, India and China are demanding 500 to 600 billion a year from wealthy nations, (US) if they are to comply with cap and trade.

I saw this one in the turtleneck and yes he does tell of oppression. The one I saw he had a suit on and sitting in a chair. One time he looked straight into the camera, then he turned to the side a little bit and that is when he said, green jobs would be the engine for oppression.

I wanted to see it again because did he mean he would oppress with green jobs (revenge)? Or reparations for oppression? Basically he said green jobs is not for global warming but a tool for their radical agenda.

The Obama administration knew exactly who Van Jones was when they appointed him to the Green Czar position. His ideologies put him in the position. It is folly to think otherwise.

But, Van Jones isn’t an exception...rather he represents the rule. Wait until the backgrounds of these other Czars come to light.

By the way, Van Jones isn’t gone now...he just went under the radar. Wake up America!!!

Would someone please explain to me how all of these radical marxist, socialist, communist corrupt, filled with racial hatred and revenge buddies of Obama is not opening the eyes of everyone including MSM? Unless owners of MSM is a part of it.

I understand 95% of MSM is owned by Jewish. Jewish back Obama after his assaults on Israel?

I try really hard to think this is all a conspiracy. I don’t want to think this could be happening in the White House. That conservatives are intentionally making all of this up.But when you get hit one after the other with lies and obama obfuscations and before your eyes obama’s every move says it is all true,what else can you believe?

Oh yeah,Obama will place him on a special board working with Cass Sunstein just like he did Daschle on GE’s board so he can push through his socialist rationing.

HuffPo said she was happy the smear campaign released him and now he could talk without a sock in his mouth. She endorsed his book also.

Van Jones was on the board for center for american progress and appollo project.I think the links are Soros, ACORN, SEIU and the APOLLO project.

Very sad,Glen Beck did a lot of this investigating and how his life is being threatened. Obama destroys opposition.

I saw that one and it is similar but he is tamer in this video believe it or not. He actually is talking into the camera sitting down.

This is what obama has plans for us. I wanted to believe otherwise but the evidence is overwhelming, ladies and gentleman of the court.

I vaguely remember Major saying something like that. I can look on my twitter and see if it is there, however there is n article that was posted yesterday that said that they had not “scrubbed” stuff because he was of such low rank or some such stupid statement.
