Skip to comments.Obama's 'green jobs czar' worked with terror founder

Van Jones, the man appointed as "green jobs czar" to the White House, previously served on the board of an environmental activist group at which a founder of the Weather Underground terrorist organization is a top director.
WND previously reported Jones was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader.
He was appointed to serve as the special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. According to the White House blog, Jones' duties include helping to craft job-generating climate policy and to ensure equal opportunity in the administration's energy proposals.
Jones, formerly a self-described "rowdy black nationalist," boasted in a 2005 interview with the left-leaning East Bay Express that his environmental activism was a means to fight for racial and class "justice."
Jones was president and founder of Green For All, a nonprofit organization that advocates for building a so-called inclusive green economy.
Until recently, Jones was a longtime member of the board of Apollo Alliance, a coalition of labor, business, environmental and community leaders that claims on its website to be "working to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs."
Although influential, Apollo has only 14 state affiliates nationwide. Its New York office is directed by Jeff Jones, a top founding member of the Weather Underground radical organization.

Funny how they now talk about how Great A country this is because only in America could we get a Supreme Court Justice like Sotomayer, only in America
Ah, more associations of the Zer0 White House with socialist revolutionaries, Marxists, and self-describes Communists.
Jeff Jones from the documentary The Weather Underground:
“The power belongs to the young people and the black people in this country. Come on! We gotta build a strong base and someday we gotta knock those m****ers who control this thing right on their a&&.”
By the way, if you can stand to sit through it for 1 1/2 hours, “The Weather Underground” is a great documentary that’s well worth watching because it shows Jones, Ayers, Dohrn, Rudd, and all their other Marxist cronies in their past and current glory.
It is definitely worthwhile to see and to understand the kinds of violent communist and socialist influences that are now circulating within the White House.
WE NEED OIL AND GAS AND ALWAYS WILL!!! DRILL DAMN IT!!
(What's with spell check?)
This should be a question at one of hetownhall meetings. Why is congress shirking its oversight of the Executive Branch while it brazenly avoids the Constitution and appoints people that they have no control of?
Because, after all, no situation is completely screwed up until it is a racial screw up...
The RATS aren’t even trying to hide it, that a person they put on some gov’t posistion is a commie, they’re PROUD of it. It’s called treason.
we really need to build reactors in every state and that could completely upgrade the national grid. and create massive amount of jobs at the same time.
this , i feel needs to be pushed. ppl need to be educated about nuclear energy.
Hopefully if we make it to 2012 as a nation, a new president will be elected. His first act at noon on Jan 20th 2013 will be to sweep all these bums out of the White House. In Italian they have an idiom: Scopa Nuova, Scopa Bene...A new broom sweeps clean. If they are not out of there by 1201 pm, I would issue orders to the Secret Service to use Street Sweepers.
I like to send articles like this to my friends, but they just sound crazier every day.
You should hear Glenn Beck's riff on this character. Hilarious, and very informative. The guy's a self-proclaimed Communist.
I love it when Glenn plays that! This info of all the commies that Obama has/is surrounding himself with needs more exposure!
