Van Jones Denies Second Truther Connection, Confirms Role With Pro-al Qaeda Paper
Friday, September 4, 2009 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/04/2009 4:15:30 PM PDT by kristinn

Jake Tapper, reporting on Twitter a few hours ago:

A source close to Jones re: 2002 doc: “Jones didn’t participate in and wasn’t part of this march at all..."

..."He spent a very brief time on the board of the magazine War Times.” Says no other connections to Truther movement other than petition.
about 3 hours ago from web

Tapper is referencing the Rense.com document from January 2002.

Gateway Pundit broke the news about Rense.com this morning with a report that posited that Jones was an organizer of the 9/11 Truther march listed on the page.

This writer took an alternate view that Jones was organizing an effort to undermine the war on al Qaeda with a leftist propaganda newspaper that was mentioned further down the page in a separate article.

Tapper expanded on his Twitter entries with an update at ABC News:

On Friday a 2002 document emerged in which Jones was on the "organizing committee" of a newspaper called WAR TIMES -- "A New, Biweekly, Tabloid Newspaper Opposing the 'War on Terrorism.'"

The WAR TIMES document asserts that the "world's most powerful nation has mercilessly bombed Afghanistan and is installing a neo-colonial government of its own choosing, although that country has never attacked the U.S. Millions of Afghans have been displaced and face starvation this winter. The administration has also green-lighted massive Israeli assaults on Palestine, and it threatens to attack Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia, and other countries. The agenda seems clear: to remake the world in the rightwing image with little regard for human consequences."

WAR TIMES's announcement appeared with the announcement of a protest march demanding a congressional inquiry into whether and how much the Bush administration may have played a role in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

But a source close to Jones said that “Jones didn’t participate in and wasn’t part of this march at all. He spent a very brief time on the board of the magazine War Times.” The source says no other connections to the Truther movement other than the petition exist.

In journalism, 'a source close to' is usually the person being referenced. After his weak apologies and explanations yesterday, the White House has put a muzzle on Jones.

Tapper still hasn't gotten around to Jones being a Mumia supporting cop hater.

Will BO throw Van under the bus?

STAND BY YOUR VAN
Tune: "Stand By Your Man" Original

Sometimes it's hard to be Obama
Backin' all the czars at your command
You'll have commies
PR tsunamis
Wipin' out your castles in the sand

But if you love him you won't dump him
Even though he's messin' up your plan
And if they throw stones
Oh, don't let go Jones
'Cause after all he's still your Van

Stand by your Van
Give him your imprimatur
Don't be a wimp about it
When whites attack your brother

Stand by your Van
And show Glenn Beck you back him
Keep backin' Jones--oh, yes you can!
Stand by your Van!

ME AND MR. JONES
Tune: "Me and Mrs. Jones" Original

Me and Mr. Jones
I took a green commie on
They all say that it's wrong
But I'm much too strong
To let him go now

We meet every day at the bust of Che
6:30, I know, I know he'll be there
Raising fists, making all kinds of lists
While we read a page of Mao Zedong

Me and Mr.--Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones
I took a green commie on
They all say that it's wrong
But I'm much too strong
To let him go now

I gotta be extra careful
That he won't give our secrets away
'Cause he won't postpone revolution
But me, I need till May

Me and Mr.--Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones
They want my green commie gone
They all say that it's wrong
Well, it won't be long
I'll let him go now

Well, it's time for me to relieve him
It hurts so much to pull the bus outside
Now I'll throw him under, and he'll resign
But tomorrow we'll tweet, the same plans, the same time

Me and Mr.--Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones
I took a green commie on
I gotta be extra careful
I can't afford to give our secrets away

I wanna meet and talk with Van
With the same plans, the same old Che, the same time
And we're gonna raise fists like we used to
We're gonna talk it over, talk it over

We know, they know, and you know and I know that it was wrong
But I'm hangin' strong
I gotta let 'em know now
That I kept a green commie on, a green commie on . . .

Gone from his post? Possibly. Gone from zero’s team? Not a chance. He hand picked this guy BECAUSE of what he believes and promotes.

Look at Obama's inner circle throughout his life...and this whole picture becomes clear.

Van Jones = Frank Davis = Bill Ayers = Bernardine Dohrn = Jeremiah Wright = Tony Rezko = Rashid Khalidi = Raila Ordinga = Carol Browner = Rahm Emanuel = John Holdren = Rosa Brooks = Eric Holder = Ezekiel Emanuel = BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

This is who the man is. A cauldron of corruption, greed, marxism and communism...with disturbing ties to radical Islam.

...he is also now the President of the United States of America, and he is going about, with a will, and very methodically destroying the free market and fundamental republican principle within our nation.

I agree with others that he picked Jones knowing what he believed, and was full of himself enough to think he could get away with it.

But my suspicion is that he won’t be able to stand the heat, and soon Jones will remove himself from the equation. It will be spun as bigotry that drove him out.

I’m curious to know if I’m right.

Don’t believe it. This entire administration need be gone as soon as possible. The fast way of doing that is to remove as many Democrats as possible in the 2010 elections. Once that occurs the investigations will kick in. Beyond, the spending, health care, C & T the issue of the radicals running our government will be a major issue in the 2010 election cycle. It’s very strange that the Dems don’t see that Must be a tin ear.

I'd like him outta there, too, except I don't want him to be gone until every American knows everything Van Jones stands for & has always stood for & that their President (who was supposed to be the Great Unifier) put him in the office down the hall & gave him $3.6 billion in 'stimulus funds' to disburse at his own discretion, and intends to give him control over another $56 billion if Cap and Trade becomes law.

Not enough Americans have heard of Van Jones yet. I don't want him to get canned & go down the media memory hole until everybody in this country sees the ghost of this sick racist freak's face looming over the podium everytime their POTUS appears on TV. This man is Barrack Hussein Obama's BFF, there's a reason for that & the world needs to know what it is.

“Special Report” had an audio interview with the Head Troofer that maintains the website 911 Troof dot com, and he stated that (unlike the Obama White House) his group vetted every single signature on their petition either by telephone or personal e-mail before they ever published it.

He sounded a bit miffed that Van Jones is trying to back away from the Troofers, because it sounds like up until the time Faux News called, they were very proud of Mr. Jone’s sponsorship of their personal mental delusions about George W. Bush’s personal sponsorship of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The point is, none of this is new, most of it is very well documented (including some very good YouTube videos of Van himself...) with plenty of people who are willing to swear that Van Jones is every bit the extreme leftist he has led them all to believe he really is all this time. Jones has worked very very hard to promote the image and reputation he has, and his friends on the left are not pleased he is trying to throw them under Obama’s bus instead of himself...

If only we had someone of Ronald Reagan’s stature to pick an issue like this up and beat the DemocRats soundly about the face and neck with it...

Developing...

I’ve known Obama was a commie since July of 2007 when I started researching him. Right after he first lied and said...”I am above politics as usual!” which was a serious red flag. Then come to find out he scammed his first election by removing all his opponents.

I posted it every day on CBS during the election and am still posting it, and I’ve been banned by CBS 351 times. CBS cannot stand for anybody to post a truth about the Obamessiah!

Thank goodness Fox News started hammering him, FINALLY! And frankly I worry for the safety of Glenn Beck, especially.

If you’ll research The New Party, it is run by William Ayers and his buddies Carl Davidson and Mark Rudd of the Weathermen, and nobody hates the US like they do. Carl Davidson and Mark Rudd also run Progressives for Obama, which is a wing of the Progressives movement of which your leadership, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, and the majority of the leftists in Congress calling themselves democrats. They literally hijacked the DNC because they knew they couldn’t run their candidate from The New Party (commies).

Now is not the time to be weak, we’ve got to stand up and fight every piece of legislation effecting every issue from this administration. And we’ve somehow got to keep it peaceful or it will give Obama the spark he needs for Martial Law. Stand up and be strong and stay engaged! We’ve just GOT to do it.

I've sent Shanklin and Rush my stuff before, just as good, but I don't think they use outside submissions.

Excellent post!

And that’s exactly why we cannot allow the WHOLE issue to become JUST about Van Jones! We need as many freepers as possible doing research on the rest of the czars. Expose them all....Obama chose them BECAUSE of who they are!

I love how he claims that he signed the petition without reading it. So, we are supposed to believe that an Ivy-league educated lawyer signs documents without reading them. And this guy is supposed to “create grren jobs.” There is a carnival in need of a barker.

Yeah, handing Obama a humiliation is important -- but the humiliation we MUST hand him is the defeat of Obamacare. He has appointed and will continue to appoint American-hating racists, tax-evaders, demagogues and other leftist nutbags, and various traitors: this particular one is more of a distraction, a diversionary tactic, to try to get this Obamanation through Congress. If it passes, it'll guarantee his reelection in 2012, and the 2010 midterms will look much better for his party as well.

OK, it's Friday night at midnight. Time to start up the bus.

At breakfast there will be a crawler on CNN:

"......Controversial White House advisor Van Jones has stepped down for family reasons.........It is 72 days since Michael Jackson passed away.........Splash the dog peed on the carpet last night......There were three distinct spots in the Blue Room...

And that's all you will hear from them.

Glen Beck is really good. Like Patton, he read their book! Alinsky is being rammed up Zero's ass and it is sure gonna hurt. Couldn't happen to a person who deserved it more. The great thing is that there are 36 more targets (at least) after this one. Locate. Fix. Personalize. Destroy. The Marxists wanted a war. Now they have one.
