    Good riddance. One down, 1000 to go.

    Don't you just love that he got calls urging him to stay from "across the political spectrum"? Yeah, from communist to radical left.
    And it isn't a smear campaign if it's true.

  • Nice timing- holiday weekend. I guess we won't even notice. NOT!!!
    I think I can hear Glenn Beck whooping it up from here.

    Good riddance indeed, Gigi.

    The sad part of it is that American people must come to grip with the fact that these are the kind of people that our current President and the Democrats like to associate with.

    You’ll never see a Van Jones character in any Republican administration.

    This 'green jobs tsar' monniker was aircover for Jones' real mission: use thirty billion dollars of 'Steam Money' to gut the American economy and punish the people who make it go

    His 'green capitalism' ramblings are recycled 1960's campus/street corner jive-talkin', i.e. 'what we need, uh kinda green capitalism thing...'

    Yeah. Right. Nothing like making it up as one goes along....

    Then blathered about solar powered aircraft, suggesting yet again he'd do for this nation's economy what ernesto 'che' guevara did for Cuba's formerly thriving banks.

    While all the radicalism, communist, racist facts regarding Van Jones were being exposed, not a single MSM outlet covered it ... at what point are they going to start reporting the news?

    When the truth about these "progressives" (Code word for Socialists) is told, it's quickly qualified as smears, lies and distortions ... the irony is that thanks to technology, it's becoming easier to learn the truth of these radical characters through their OWN words ... and yet some still don't wake-up!

    The scary thing here is that Van Jones may have resigned as the "official" Green Czar, but more likely he will still be very much part of this administration's policy shaping ... he has moved from the front/visible lines to the "Shadow" government behind the scenes (the one of Soros & Co.) ... let's not forget that Van Jones and the Apollo Alliance Group is backed by Soros & the (Lefty) Tides Foundation ... The Apollo Alliance has boasted of writing both the Stimulus bill and Cap and Trade ... and more likely the Healthcare Reform Bill.

    I wish you well :) Melek

    "Obama's victory was more than a progressive move; it was a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle," Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,' not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through." ~ Frank Chapman (CPUSA)

    That feticidal sociopath, "Science Tsar" John Holdren, should be the next on the tsar-be-gone list.

    Ultimately the entire lot of them should be ousted with extreme prejudice, then if any "tsars" are required, let them pass advice-and-consent muster as the Constitution requires of all senior executive branch officials. The tsars collectively constitute a Demshevik New Order shadow cabinet, made ready to step in after a willful self-destruction of the constitutional government. It is subset of a larger staging effort, i.e. AKORN, SEIU, and dozens of other Party lapdog organizations subtly positioned for assumption of power following a wider, forced governmental implosion. One wonders what the trigger event will be, but I digress... "1933" must be totally dismantled for this literal counterrevolution to be quashed before it happens. We had our revolution already, thank you.

    I believe it was also Beck who said these folks should use the Russian post-revolutionary title rather than the imperial one: Komissars. I would beg to differ; as long as the ass-kissing parasitic left wing of the private sector is involved, i.e. Immelt, Rockefellers et al., this is fascism in its definitive sense, not Marxism, so maybe terms such as "Reichsmarschall" and "Gauleiter" are more appropriate.

    Alle ist klar, Herr Komissar?

  • I wonder if the AP will publish a picture of Van Jones' "career" as it was taking its last few breaths?

  • ivandurakov

    I stand corrected. The Senate HAS been confirming these psychopathic Czars. By unanimous voice vote mostly, thank you Republicrat wusses. Cass Sunstein is the exception, an exceptional wack job, for "Regulatory Czar".
