Van Jones, Barack Obama's Green Jobs Czar, produced a record album entitled "WarTimes: Reports from the Opposition" a few years ago that was narrated by convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal and featured a clip of an interview Jones did where he slammed the United States and Israel and proclaimed his stand with a "global struggle" against the United States.
Jones used his Ella Baker Center for Human Rights to found Freedom Fighter Music, the label WarTimes appeared on. WarTimes is also the name of an anti-war-on-al-Qaeda propaganda newspaper Jones helped organize.
The album was unearthed by the website Verum Serum, which posted a YouTube video with highlights of the album.
About three minutes forty-five seconds in to the highlight video, there is a brief interview with Van Jones at an anti-Israel demonstration where Jones criticizes Israel and calls for Palestinian 'right of return' then unloads on the United States:
"We see violence against poor people and poor people of color within the U.S. border, at the U.S. border, and beyond the U.S. border and you see U.S. tax dollars funding all of it. And so we have this now global struggle against the U.S. led security apparatus and military agenda that impacts people here and impacts people around the world and I think that we need to see our problems as linked."
Mumia closes out the album by describing it as a "small tease of the truth about U.S. imperialism's war on the world."
The time frame of the album is hard to gauge, but Verum Serum writes that Freedom Fighter Music existed from around 2002-2003 to 2005-2006 and produced maybe two or three albums. The album appears to be from late 2002 or early 2003.
Jones mentioned the label in an interview with USA Today's USA Weekend magazine published February 9, 2003 that Verum Serum found:
[I understand you have] developed a record label, Freedom Fighter Music.
Jones: Yes, we've had one for a little more than a year. Our second CD is coming out this year.
Verum Serum gave a link to an MP3 file of the entire album at Indymedia.
An article that might dovetail with your assertion(s):
And now that odinga has his hands on gazillions more of our tax dollars, what's next??? Calypso Louis as commander of the "civilian defense forces"?
Someone should stick a microphone in Colin Powell’s face and ask him about this crap!! How long will the rinos continue to back COMMUNISM for christ’s sake?!!
And people wonder why Plugs is acting like the prez. Maybe he knows what’s coming.
“What a scary post.”
If you knew what I know you would be terrified.
What happens over the next eight months will determine if the US remains what people here at FR would call free or if we lose our sovereignty to some truly bad people.
I’ve been saying it for a long time: We are in trouble.
Say these words: “There are communists trying to take over the United States of America.”
You don’t want to say them do you? Your gut tells you it can’t be true, or perhaps that I’m an alarmist, or paranoid.
This is the effect of psychological subversion. Why are current generations so slow to recognize, let alone respond, to the offenses of the hard-left when previous generations of Americans were very much aware of the threat?
How can you fight what you cannot see?
Communists are not stupid—they are clearly our most dangerous adversaries. But by the reaction of today’s well-conditioned American to blatant communist activity you would think they didn’t even exist. This is a grand achievement for them.
The ‘good crisis’ comes next.
If we fail to hault the ‘solution’ to this/these crisis we will lose our country, our prosperity, our property, our freedom, our children’s hope of freedom, and on, and on.
I’ve been studying the left for over twenty years and I was raised around Russian defectors.
Your inability to recognize it is why the KGB, for just one example, spent only 15% of their time and resources on spying and 85% of these on subversion.
They are very serious and fully engaged in war against us. We’re not even aware of their presence yet.
Imagine someone hacking away at you while you sleep. This is what is happening right now to the United States.
And people laughed at SP when she said 0bama palled around w/terrorists.

PROFILE: VAN JONES
Born in 1968 in rural West Tennessee, Van Jones earned a B.A. degree from the University of Tennessee at Martin and then attended Yale Law School. During his years at Yale, Jones served as an intern with the San Francisco-based Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR), which views the United States as an irredeemably racist nation and "champions the legal rights of people of color, poor people, immigrants and refugees, with a special commitment to African-Americans."
Jones says that he first became politically radicalized in the aftermath of the deadly April 1992 Los Angeles riots which erupted shortly after four L.A. police officers who had beaten the infamous Rodney King were exonerated in court. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th," says Jones, who is black, "and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist."
Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. "I met all these young radical people of color," he recalls, "I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.' I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary."
After earning his Juris Doctorate from Yale in 1993, Jones relocated to San Francisco, where he helped establish Bay Area PoliceWatch, a hotline and lawyer-referral service that began as a project of LCCR. In 1996 he founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which, claiming that the American criminal-justice system is infested with racism, seeks to promote alternatives to incarceration. According to the Baker Center:
"Decades of disinvestment in our cities have led to despair and hopelessness. For poor communities and communities of color it's even worse, as excessive, racist policing and over-incarceration have left people even further behind."
By the late 1990s, Jones was a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who viewed police officers as the arch-enemies of black people, and who loathed capitalism for allegedly exploiting nonwhite minorities worldwide. He became a leading member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a now-defunct Bay Area Marxist-Maoist collective that was staffed by members of various local nonprofits, a number of whom had ties to the Ella Baker Center.
In the early 2000s, Jones and STORM were active in the anti-Iraq War demonstrations organized by International ANSWER, a front group for the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party. STORM also had ties to the South African Communist Party and it revered Amilcar Cabral, the late Marxist revolutionary leader (of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands) who lauded Lenin as "the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples." (In 2006 Van Jones would name his own newborn son "Cabral" -- in Amilcar Cabral's honor.)
During his tenure with STORM, Jones collaborated on numerous projects (including antiwar demonstrations) with local activist Elizabeth "Betita" Martinez, who served as a "mentor" for members of the Ella Baker Center. Martinez was a longtime Maoist who went on to join the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), a Communist Party USA splinter group, in the early 1990s. To this day, Martinez continues to sit on the CCDS advisory board alongside such luminaries as Angela Davis, Timuel Black (who served on Barack Obama's 2004 Senate campaign committee), and musician Pete Seeger. Martinez is also a board member of the Movement for a Democratic Society, the parent organization of Progressives for Obama. Martinez and Van Jones together attended a "Challenging White Supremacy" workshop which advanced the theme that "all too often, the unconscious racism of white activists stands in the way of any effective, worthwhile collaboration" with blacks.
In 2005 Jones and the Ella Baker Center produced the "Social Equity Track" for the United Nations' World Environment Day celebration, a project that eventually would evolve into the Baker Center's Green-Collar Jobs Campaign -- "a job-training and employment pipeline providing 'green pathways out of poverty' for low-income adults in Oakland."
Soon after attending the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2007, Jones launched "Green For All," a non-governmental organization "dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty advocating for local, state and federal commitment to job creation, job training, and entrepreneurial opportunities in the emerging green economy - especially for people from disadvantaged communities."
In 2008 Jones published his first book, The Green Collar Economy, which focused on environmental and economic issues. The book received favorable reviews from such notables as Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Laurie David, Winona LaDuke, environmentalist Paul Hawken, and NAACP President/CEO Ben Jealous.
Jones has served as a board member of numerous environmental and nonprofit organizations, including the Rainforest Action Network; Free Press; Bioneers (which accepts the United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Report's warning that "[h]uman activity is putting such strain on the natural functions of Earth that the ability of the planet's ecosystems to sustain future generations can no longer be taken for granted"); the National Apollo Alliance (which seeks "to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs"); the Social Venture Network (which aims "to build a just economy and sustainable planet"); and Julia Butterfly Hill's "Circle of Life" environmental foundation.
Jones was also a Senior Fellow with the Center for American Progress and a Fellow at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
In March 2009, President Barack Obama named Jones to be his so-called "Green Jobs Czar." Jones' formal title is "Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation" for the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
In a July 2009 interview with Newsweek magazine, Jones said he could not explain exactly what a "green job" is:
"Well, we still don't have a unified definition, and that's not unusual in a democracy. It takes a while for all the states and the federal government to come to some agreement. But the Department of Labor is working on it very diligently. Fundamentally, it's getting there, but we haven't crossed the finish line yet."
Perhaps he is the point of the spear. Outrageous and expendable cannon fodder. Now Obama can back off a little and seem reasonable by dumping this clown and replacing him with someone who is 90% as bad, thus advancing his communist agenda. Alinsky.
BUMP for great freeping.
For ***years*** I have been posting that Marxism is our nation's most serious threat. Government K-12 schools are the Marxists' most important and powerful weapon. Yet...Few conservatives can even identify the enemy ( Marxism ) or have any awareness that government K-12 schools are their most important weapon. Most have sent or are sending their children to government schools.
Yes, I am exasperated.
(( ping ))
Nah. Just the White people in the US.
“proclaimed his stand with a “global struggle” against the United States.”
If these freaks think the USA is SO bad, why is the entire world breaking their backs getting here????
Whoa! Impeach Obama and you have Biden. You really want that? Impeach Biden and you get Pelosi. Keep going and at no point do you get a conservative.
Obama is just fine for now. He is teaching a lazy public that was more interested in shopping, T-ball, and hope/change about political ideology and why it matters. It is a painful lesson, but it's like a disease that strengthens the body. Contrast that with Mr. Bush, who spent our money like a drunken lobbyist and made the public think "conservative" means everything it doesn't. Obama is liberalism in its pure form: lying, controlling, fanatical, fascist, and dangerous. An angry public can keep him controlled, and we may just get some spirit renewed in the USA as a result.
Mr. Jefferson said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Let's think of "blood" in a metaphorical sense. Rep. Michelle Bachman got in trouble for this quote, so I want to be clear! :)
In case anyone missed this
Van Jones: “resist the police”
“I just want to thank Glenn Beck for getting the ball rolling. “
Indeed! Thank you Mr. Beck.
“For years I have been posting that Marxism is our nation’s most serious threat.”
Well, you have been correct all along.
I only wish Reagan would have informed the right that even though the Soviet’s ‘fell’ that Communism is still alive and well and working against the USA.
How convenient for those subversion artists that we believe they have fallen and we relax and go off to slumber.
We have slept far too long.
They are well-fortified and have enough saturation to inflict great harm. They are in a position from which they could indeed deliver a fatal blow, if they play their cards right.
This is a critical time for freedom, worldwide.
They will never stop trying to tear down this country, never.
Because they have been educated in government K-12 schools!
Just by attending these government schools children are conditioned to be socialists. They are taught by their teachers that it is their **right** to have government threaten their neighbor to collect the money to pay for a service their parents want for free. It is a short step from viewing education as a **right** to demanding that government also take money from your neighbor for food, clothing, retirement, housing, transportation, and even entertainment.
Government schools were from their beginning in the mid 1800s to the early 1900s a socialist scheme to produce compliant workers for the fascist state. That was the intention of the founders of this institution! And....Socialism can NOT be fixed. It must be eliminated.
While my mother, and father, 96 years old, may have been influenced by their parents and grandparents, people who broke the sod, cleared the land, and built up brand new towns, ( people who did not have access to universal compulsory state schools) today's generations do not remember these 18th century pioneers.
My county's high school is celebrating its 100 anniversary this year. My mother is 96. My dad ( the same age) died this year. This is just to give some perspective here. Government schooling is a relatively young instiution, and into the 1950s and 1960s there were still plenty of people alive who remembered the old traditions of self-reliance. They are gone now, and the communist dominated government schools have free reign with the minds and hearts of the nation's children.
Communism is our nation's most serious threat. Government schools are the communists’ most powerful weapon. Yet...Few conservative recognize the enemy ans willing send their children into the communists’ indoctrination camps.
He's way better than the Marxist Obama. Biden admin will be a cripple an so would that flake Pelousi until the end where they lose everything in the next elections, and we get a few laughs along the way.
So is DumBO’s pal Ayers, who declared war on the USA. Show me who your friends are and I’ll show you who you are.
We just need to make enough noise to keep him and them impotent until next year when they will all disappear and run for re-election and THEN we need to push for a GOP rout in the house and then impeach O and B.
His ratings fell off this week and he has been virtually without any guests or sponsors... we really need to support this brave man with our numbers.
Say these words: There are communists trying to take over the United States of America.
Societies FALL into communism, they sure the hell don’t ASPIRE to it.
Maybe the taxpayers and all the bailouts.
My kids were adopted from former eastern block countries. It makes me absolutely sick to my stomach that this disease, this virus, this cancer of communism is turning into a full blown plague here in our dear country where we brought our kids to have a life in liberty & freedom.
Indeed .. Lord, we’re humbly at Your feet .. helps us, save our blessed America from these satans.
Ditto, ditto, ditto.
30 years of kids have been sent to indoctrination camps, funded by our own tax dollars. And we are surprised when they can’t discern a communist when they see one? For heaven’s sake, they’ve been taught to agree with every tenet of communism, they just don’t call it that!

The underlying title line for this compilation album reads: "REPORTS FROM THE OPPOSITION"
The Ella Baker Center For Human Rights funded this project in raising awareness of alternatives to war. This CD is an open letter to President Bush and his administration demanding world peace. All proceeds raised by this project go toward war-alternative programs such as SCHOOLS NOT BOMBS in Oakland, California.
This album is another dope hip-hop compilation featuring name and new artists like: GOAPELE, COMPANY OF PROPHETS, THE RED GUARD, HANIFAH WALIDAH, MEILODIK, SAMANTHA LIAPES and more. Heated production from CES-ONE, YING SUN, & MIKE TIGER make up the soundscape on which these artists voice songs that call for peace. There are also some R&B style and spoken word tracks on this joint. This album is narrated and hosted by MUMIA ABU-JAMAL and includes social commentary from community leaders and activists like VAN JONES and others.
This is the second in a series from Freedom Fighter Music and is a must have for those who are politically active, conscious and into hip-hop music.

this guy needs to stay with obama all the way to the next presidential election. maybe we are jumping the gun. of course, that crazy reverend was revealed and obama still got elected. maybe its better to force a political death by a thousand cuts and keep marching on.
Thanks. As of now there are 33 returns on the search terms Van Jones and Freedom Fighter Music. It’ll be interesting to see how that changes by this time tomorrow.
Kinda like a 'community organizer' on a global scale...A Black Panther with an updated name...

Joseph McCarthy was right - and was ostracized. Now we see unfolding EXACTLY what Senator McCarthy was trying to warn us about -
And don’t you think the Secret Service has something planned in the event of what youre describing actually takes place?
The jig was up when he (Obambi) went over their head to allow this Commie into the WHite House (much against their stern warnings). They are watching every move he makes against the U.S. Constitution and they are taking names.
God bless Saint Joe.
I don’t know what the Secret Service is doing.
I hope you are right. I hope they are freedom-minded Americans.
No, this time Jones gets away with saying, "That's not the same 9/11 Truther Petition I knew."
I am very worried: what type of national secrets Obama gave to these guys when they meet in the oval office around a beer?
When these guys will be out like Van Jones - I hope soon - what do they know about the White House, about US secrets? What Obama told them about American “classified” and how will they use what they learnt?
WHERE IS THE FBI WHEN WE NEED THEM TO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY???
This terrifies me.
Actually I probably should have said CIA, since it is after all Obama’s henchmen in the Dept of Justice that are going after them for keeping our country safe. After watching Yuri’s (KGB defector in the 80s) videos on Youtube I’m convinced ..CIA would probably be doing what we cannot (unknown to Obama of course..which infuriates him, hence the attacks from the DOJ).
Forget that. The RNC needs to get some ads in the bank about how Obama and the Dems allow people like this to live off of the public dime.
Amen to that. The more the general public is educated that there's been a communist coup, the better chance there will be of a rout in the 2010 elections. Just keep emailing, blogging, writing, posting, Tea-Partying - whatever you can to get the Truth out - and hopefully we'll have a peaceful revolution. If not, hey, I'm up for the other kind. . .
That is an amazing video! Who was the senator(?) doing the questioning of the crawfishing Fed IG? If a senator(?) at a hearing can’t get straight answers to some very basic questions about where the money went, we’re in the deepest kinda doodoo. Ron Paul is of course right again; the Fed needs to open its books before ALL of our tax dollars disappear down a rat hole. Some high level chicanery is afoot.
Under the video it says
First-term (anti-bailout candidate) Democrat Alan Grayson questions Elizabeth Coleman, Inspector General of the Federal Reserve.
surprising that it’s a democrat. First-term may he be the first of a new breed of democrat congressmen that remembers America’s mission statement.
Scratch the “who” question. It looked like he was wearing a senate pin, but the title sortof gives it away - Alan Grayson, congressman from FL. That’s worth a (((DUH!!!))) on my part!
