Van Jones Resigns. Glenn Beck, Free Republic, Fox News Embarrass Media
Associated Content ^ | Sept. 6-2009 | Bobby Tall Horse

Once Glenn Beck brought Van Jones to light, the Internet started looking into him. FOX news was the only major media even reporting on Jones. Free Republic and their learned participants added fuel to the fire of knowledge.

Shows how irrelevant the “main stream” media is. They are so yesterday.

The DUmmies are in meltdown. They’re SO stupid they think it’s because Jones called GOPs “a-holes”. Not a word about the Truther thing, the Communist thing, etc.

No. I actually agree with them here. It's hard for us to imagine it, but the average American doesn't care about "Communism". Their eyes glaze over. Beck railed after Jones for 2 months, using Commie, Marxist, fascist. No one cared. No media covered it. Even FoxNews other than Beck ignored Jones--people forget that. Van Jones remained secure.

Then a video was released last week showing Jones dropping the "A-Bomb" 3 times in a lecture. Now THAT people can relate to. Folks who watch "EXTRA" and read Us Weekly and People. Folks who aren't as engaged in politics as are we (most people are not). Seeing Van Jones saying that really struck a chord. And finally the media started covering it.

We FReepers operate at a much higher plane that the average slob out there. "Communist" doesn't get their attention. A**hole does, and did, and opened the door for the other stuff to gain traction.

“Obama gave Jones thirty billion dollars.”

Maybe that was the object of the appointment to begin with.
(Finance the revolutionaries.)

IMHO

Like a fleeing criminal that tosses garbage cans at its followers Obama did just that, he threw Van Johnson at us to stall our approaching advance, I have no doubt about that. Quote:"Glad I made it to Post 81 to read your brilliant analysis of today's news. What a gem!" Thanks!

Valerie Jarret (Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement) goes waaayyyyy back in grooming the fraud-in-chief.

Isn't this Valerie Jarret the same individual who is little more than a Chicago slumlord?

How do the Alinsky rules go? Identify, Isolate, Demoralize, Destroy.

Alinsky RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

Even if the Republicans are too gutless to fight fire with fire, the American people aren't, and Beck, right now, is reflecting the voice and will of the people a hell of a lot better than anyone in DC.

FRAUDcaster in chief (while he lasted) Dan Rather fell the same way. This is not the first, it will not be the last, and we will not rest.

Maybe you’re right. Guess I was giving libs credit for being able to handle critical thinking tasks when they’re not that deep.

***One down ! How many Tsars to go?***

Unfortunately they are like cockroaches.

We will need to spray down all of DC to get rid of them.

CALL CONGRESS: Taxpayers demand a complete audit of Jones’ federal agency.

Ohaha gave Jones $30 BILLION to do with as he pleased.

This conniving Communist surely found numerous ways to shovel US government money to himself, his friends and relatives, during his blessedly abbreviated tenure.

CALL CONGRESS: SBOARD 202-225-3121
Toll-free capital switchboard: 800-828-0498
Toll-free 877-762-8762-——800-965-4701

Good idea. I’ll be copying this to other threads, too, Liz.

The Old Media did not mention this story at all. There was a thread yesterday that posted zeros for all the networks other than Fox and the NYSlimes. The WashPost did one story.

This was done COMPLETELY by the New Media.

I just looked for that in the debate transcripts. Have you found it?

No. I saw the video on TV and it seemed to be at one of the debates between Obama and McCain.

[I hope it wasn't some 'edited' video. That can be funny, but they can also be very misleading and damaging to the integrity of the video clip.]

Thanks, if you saw it and it seemed to be a “debate” I’ll go through the transcripts again. I did a search on both “surround” and “judge”, but I may have missed it.

It really doesn’t matter that much in the long run, since most everyone believes “A man may be known by the company he keeps” - nevertheless, it would be helpful to find a transcript or a video of Dear Leader saying it - if not for this, for future political ads. I’m bugged that I’ve not been able to locate a single instance, but see lots of people claiming that he said it many times during the campaign.
