Van Jones Predicts ‘Potential Nightmare Scenario’ of Social Unrest
The Blaze ^ | 5 Dec 2010 | Scott Baker

Posted on 12/05/2010 3:58:11 PM PST by mandaladon

St. Louis blogger Adam Sharp has posted a series of videos from Van Jones’ recent talk at Washington University. The most exciting clip was when they decided to toss Adam out of the event! But his subsequent posts have been revealing on a number of fronts, including Jones comparing Fox News to Satan.

Today Sharp Elbows adds one more clip into the mix. Many of you have followed Glenn Beck‘s analysis of how desperate progressives will begin to drive wedges in this country that may trigger the kind of trouble we’ve watching unfold across Europe. It seems Van Jones is now predicting just that. Jones is unwavering that the U.S. is “going to go into a tough period.” A “potential nightmare scenario” he calls it.

Jones sees two trends. A country that is growing more diverse. And one that he is certain is going to be “less and less economically prosperous.” He repeats his forecast. Makes you wonder – what intel does he have that he can be so confident of American economic demise?

These trends, says Jones pointing us to history, make up a recipe: “That is not a recipe for common ground, that’s a recipe for a battleground.”

Sharp entitles his video with a question: Is Van Jones Predicting a Civil War?

Jones and BO are desperately trying to incite violence, that is their only hope of avoiding prison.

By leaking State Department Cables, BO has made himself public enemy #1 of all Diplomats worldwide and subjected himself to a lawsuit to legally remove him from office directly before SCOTUS.

I see a lot of talk and promises but no action. We have seen the radical left out in force at the Commie Convention in response to Becks rally. Small number of brain dead idiots. We out number these dopes and they have no respect from any rational person. Any civil unrest created by these jokers will laughed at.

That’s not much of a prediction considering that Congress is selling us, our children, and thier children into slavery with the national debt.

No doubt Van Jones has been talking things over with his buddy Assange.

All that does is put them both on the "target list".

These people who plot and plan and expect civil war can quickly find themselves locked up somewhere more often than not (in the more civilized countries).

BTW, that's if they are lucky. Sometimes they aren't lucky.

What Van Jones is preaching is what is in POTUS Obama’s heart and soul. But, no matter what Van Jones is dreaming in his nutcase head, his side loses big time. If you can’t figure this one out, you been smoking reefer or drinking too much Kool-Aid. Get this Mr. Jones, supporting Barack Hussein Obama ain’t cool for anyone in these United States of America. You and your “hate America” cohorts better pack your political bags and sell your political and incitement jive somewhere else. Your fifteen minutes of glory is long gone!!!

Obama’s Private Army?

By Henry Lamb
April 12, 2010

Who knew that Obamacare provides for a “Regular Corps,” and a “Ready-Reserve Corps,” of officers and individuals who are appointed by the President? Commissioned officers are subject to active duty at the call of the Surgeon General. The new law provides $17.5 million in each of the first four years to recruit and train these reserves.

During his campaign, Obama said “We cannot continue to rely only on our military...we’ve got to have a civilian security force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set.”

Section 5210 of the Patient’s Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) may be the beginning of Obama’s civilian security force. This section amends Section 203 of the U.S. Public Health Service Act. Why it was included in the massive health care bill is a question in search of meaningful answers. Judge Andrew Napolitano from FOX News has a few questions of his own,.

The new law says “The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed service’s reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions.”

The law requires the Ready Reserve to participate in “routine training” to meet the general and specific needs of the Commissioned Corps. The Ready Reserve “shall” be ready for involuntary calls to active duty. The Ready Reserve must be prepared to respond to orders from the President to go anywhere in the country, or anywhere outside the country.

If dismantling the welfare state will result in a riots then — to paraphrase Hussein — America will just have to “absorb it.

The longer we wait to wean the dependent class away from the handouts , the worse the withdrawal symptoms will be. Let's get it over with now.

Folks if the liberals start shooting, it will be the law abiding who are in their sights, as all here know. The threats are the threats of (take your pick from any number of groups), those who want America’s demise. While I do not wish to be an alarmist. Preparation is key as well as information. When one is ‘Walking Tall’, always the walking, talking, reporting, etc., leads into danger. This is why, I believe, so few now make the journey, and initiate the walk, the talk, the reporting, etc. I have been wrong before though.

Our national decline has so much momentum behind it now that no one can foresee an end to it. Who will accept these solutions?

A decades long moratorium on immigration, and deportation of all illegals.

Immediate cancellation of all entitlements.

An end to our suicidal trade and industrial policy.

Abolishing most agencies in the government except those specifically called for in the Constitution.

Outlawing all public sector unions.

The death penalty for most violent crimes.

Term limits for all federal officials, including and especially judges.

Abolishing judicial review.

Compulsory draft.

Restoring value to the dollar.

Restoring morality (somehow).

I'm sure there are more that I haven't thought of just now, but I've already given myself plenty of rope.

Interesting article, but we won't be having to fight an army--just roving bands of obamanoid thugs rioting and causing havoc. A well armed populace will be able to defend itself if it has the will.

Yeah right,

The liberals ain't going to come out of their cities, instead they will turn on each 1st and burn down their own neighborhoods first

All Conservatives/Libertarians have to do is just knock out the power(which is generated out in the country) and/or water to their cities and the riots & looting will begin the moment the sun goes down.

Van Jones says we are going to be more ethnically diverse but less economically prosperous. Does he have enough brain cell to connect the two? I doubt it. We are less economically prosperous because we are more ethnically diverse. I've seen saying that for 20 years to anyone who would listen. All ethnically diverse nations tear themselves to pieces unless their is an assimilation process. We abandoned this in 1965 with the Immigration and Reform Act. Thanks Democrats.

Zombie apocalypse.

That's my bet. No civil war, no foreign invasion - but a lot of zombies out on the roads.

Good news is they're effective only at close range - easily taken at 50+ yards. Bad news is, gonna be lots of 'em, at least for a while.

He knows. He's just counting on America to rely on the ballot box, letters to the editor, and strongly-worded editorials on TV and radio.

Nobody has ever tried a Marxist revolution in a country with 300 million firearms in the hands of the population.

He has no concept of "genocide of the revolutionaries and their enablers".

But he will. Briefly. And soon.

"Obama’s Private Army?"

An Army that's on drugs, reads and performs arithmetic calculations on a third-grade level and is unwilling or unable to follow simple instructions?

It might be that many Dem pols are anti-Second Amendment because many/most of their voters are unqualified to legally purchase firearms....

"Up to 90 percent of young adults in Philadelphia can't join the military because they're undereducated, too physically unfit or have serious criminal records, a recent study found."
