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.
“The guys obama associates himself with literally make me want to hurl.”
He associates with them because he’s just like them. Only 0bama was smart enough to cloak his beliefs enough to fool the spoiled, dazed and confused Americans.
We were given “Girls Gone Wild” and hedonism, and escapism, and big screen TV’s, etc. They are using capitalism against us.
Do you think the hedonism and debauchery of the left is an accident? Do you think they don’t understand that it leads to societal rot? I’m not religious but your Pastor is correct about this sort of thing—spot on, in fact.
First, it’s sex in the town square (Girls Gone Wild), then we all begin to lose respect for each other, then we move on to enslaving each other. (I’m skipping much in the middle, but you get the picture)
Fear, uncertainty and cynicism are their chief tools. Does this sound like the USA in 2009? The liberals hate America for their perceived reasons and the right is angry because of what the liberals are doing (oversimplified, to be sure)—we are then divided for the conquering. A fatal flaw in our two-party system that they are exploiting.
There is NOTHING sacred to these people—they are thieves and destroyers.
They are using our ethics against us (political correctness, success/wealth guilt, white guilt, etc.)
Again, they are very smart people—a worthy adversary if there ever was one to threaten the US.
This is advanced subversion—we are nowhere near ready to handle it. We don’t even know it is happening.
Van Jones is a useful idiot, really. He’s not very bright. And 0bama is the hood ornament for the communists behind the wheel.
You haven’t met your adversaries, and you likely will never meet them. They are individuals, groups, powerful leaders and governments.
We’re not being attacked by a few people but many thousands.
It became clear to our enemies that they could not defeat us head-on or conventionally long ago.
This is communism via socialism-by-stealth, via liberalism, via the Democratic Party.
It’s a very, very old story. That’s why they call it ‘progressive’.
I wonder if Obama will throw Van Jones under the bus like he did after Reverand Wright went on his rant?
Hard to believe but miracles DO happen. I'll say this, he was confident enough in his knowledge of the Fed operation that he wasn't going to back off his line of questioning. Impressive.

Great work, kristinn!
“Omniscient-Now and Not Later”
Next we will see the Black Panthers replace the Secret Service.
Carlos Martillo II and his “clan” (almost exclusively male offspring & siblings) are part of the global struggle against van jones & co.
2nd that bump, and thanks for the ping on the Communist/Militant/Green Czar/Yoke on zero’s neck
I think it should be clear by now that anyone -- from Biden to Hillary to Gates -- who has agreed to join this administration is no better than the master they serve. It took six months for the American public to get the picture, but for insiders, it had to be clear from the start. They didn't walk away, so they now share the blame.
Biden is no better than Obama, as witnessed by the incredible package of lies he delivered recently about the stimulus -- no one with a shred of integrity could have delivered that speech.
Obama sure knows how to pick them!?
Aware and sensible people knew that OBAMA and hese accomplices HATE USA,its history and core founding values!
How TF a US HATER can have been elected as POTUS...
Stunning phenomenon which deserve specific analysis and understanding
Just WOW! Mow what, Mr. Pence??
TRAITORS!!!!!!! THEY’RE ALL TRAITORS!!!! IMPEACH NOW!
Ayers is coming up again and I’ll bet that is Beck’s next long range target. He is on to the Apollo Project and the guy who is head of the NY branch. That same guy is co-founder of the Weather Underground with Ayers. It has been also discoverd that Apollo was the origin of the Stimulus Bill.
Glenn’s ultimate goal is to ferret out the money and support system for Obama’s administration and to expose the entire den of political thugs, theives and whores who have played the two party good cop, bad cop game on the hard working general public to their own peril. RINO’s should be especially wary of their deeds and they know who they are.
Add to it the phoenix of Sarah Palin on the world stage and the left is in serious trouble and this time they will be wishing for McCarthy to save them. In the history of this country, I have never read about the public being so mad at any government other than of King Geroge himself.
God bless Glenn and may he summon an army of angels for his protection. Glenn is calling out some very powerful and dangerous people now and he needs all the support he can get from all of us.
You forgot a “not”
Yes Russia, specifically Siberia.
And so is his boss.
Do you really not understand?
Money is not the GOP problem.
You all do realize that as an SES in Washington DC this clown is paid $177,000 basic salary for the 2009 pay scale, not to mention benefits on top of that?
Feel better now?
It was a correographed media stunt to garner support for him back home.
He reused to organize town halls in public places but instead used union halls who ironically held union meeting right before the town halls. That left no seats for the people who showed up to get in but couldn’t. The union members were also sporting the asrtoturf placards and posters to show support for HR 3200.
All the Czars are in a global struggle against the U.S.!
Yes, and just WHAT DAMAGE has he done to the U.S. ALREADY!?!? What programs has he ALREADY put in place that need to be undone. I am quite sure he hasn’t just been sitting arounf the WH twiddling his thumbs!
We will need to fully consider some of our most precious Rights and how they were abused to create a culture of subversives and revolutionaries. A clear and careful discussion must be had by those truly aligned with the Constitution. Does marxist propaganda fall under protected Free Speech?
We will need to bring forth educators willing to invest their time and money in our future generations. They, the communists, worked over our public school system for decades. Just because 0bama & his minions are out of office won't mean the cause is won. We will either need to bring forth new schools or force the collapse of the current school system.
We need to realize there are real traitors amongst us.
IMO he had them all lined up well before he was (ughhh) elected.
You're absolutely spot on, and this point should be repeated over and over.
It's as though the reality of communism, the USSR, tanks rolling into Czechoslovakia and Poland, Tiananmen Square, etc. have been expunged from history. After the collapse of the USSR the left pushed the concept that the collapse proved the USSR was never really a threat. I don't remember Hollywood making a movie about all those who died under Stalin, or about the cultural revolution in China, or the repression that has and does occur under communist/socialist totalitarian regimes everywhere. On the other hand, ‘McCarthyism’ has been featured front and center. It's no wonder these realities are fading from societal memory.
Question....under who’s budget are these clowns paid...simple solution is cut off the funding...that being if the congress critters were truly looking out for America’s best interests... How foolish I am on this Saturday morning!
Lay it on us, Boucheau. We're big boys and girls, we can take it.
So Van Jones is a TRUTHER and now we learn that he is also a HATER .
Van Jones serves a useful purpose. As conservatives get up to speed, more and more will come out, and as it does, more and more of the foundation that Obi Wan Nairobi is trying to build will be revealed.
The MSM (Mainstream Media) is being revealed for the useful idiots they are also. Everyday independents and democrats can understand the dangerous positions that Van Jones has espoused. When they finally begin to get the picture and learn what many conservative have known for awhile, their disgust at both the administration and the MSM will be refreshing.
There are seeds of revolution being broadcast and beginning to take root.
I hope we can hold on long enough to see a rebirth of a true conservative movement.
Time to read the constitution and pray that the Supreme Court will get the right case and have the courage to make the important decision to protect Freedom & Liberty!
I couldn’t agree with you more. Impeach. But we know that will never happen. Great work kristinn,
Now to get the GOPers off their asses.
My suggestion is they boycott the Senate Chamber and House Floor until this cretin Jones is gone. Perhaps then CNN and the rest may have to actually acknowledge this guy is a Commie.
Wonderful material for any conservative political ads.
During a difficult economic season, Obi Wan Nairobi "spreads the wealth" to several of his old associates, making them Czars in his administration.
It would be interesting to complete a financial profile of some of these czars and show that salary increase spiked their annual income chart and was out of reality with previous employment and income history.
Van Jones is but a symptom. The UC Berkley is the cancer.
A massive earthquake trembling the place into a dust and rubble grave would be a wonderful event in American history.
Tell him to bring back Jeramiah Wright. He was sane compared to this imbecile.
Most of the punnets I have heard are saying he will be out of a job by Tuesday.
I was thinking the same thing. Except this @sshole is making decisions that will effect companies in Amerika.
That is a very very good point. We should be looking deeper into Michelle Obama. Hey, does anyone remember the cartoon of Obama and Obama in front of the fireplace with guns? They said it was such a racist bad thing.... Seems to have been accurate.
Now that is a great idea!!
“The MSM (Mainstream Media) is being revealed for the useful idiots they are also. Everyday independents and democrats can understand the dangerous positions that Van Jones has espoused. When they finally begin to get the picture and learn what many conservative have known for awhile, their disgust at both the administration and the MSM will be refreshing.”
I think you’re right, at least to an extent. The media eventually has to report some accuracies to salvage some of their own credibility. And as the saying goes “a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged”, a lot of the ‘hope and changers’ out there are starting to feel mugged by the false promises/outrageous lies of this new administration.
Stand with Van Jones
Like sharks in the water, a right-wing lynch mob led by notorious race-baiter Glenn Beck is now circling around White House green jobs advisor Van Jones.
On the surface, their complaint centers around Jones’ background and statements he previously made as an activist. Specifically, conservative blogs and media outlets have seized on a harshly-worded petition Beck signed in 2004 demanding further investigations into the 9/11 attacks. Jones has clarified since then, saying of the petition that “it certainly does not reflect my views, now or ever.” But this is little more than the right-wing manufactured faux-outrage du jour. Beck began aggressively going after Jones in the wake of a campaign targeting Beck’s advertisers — organized by Color of Change — an advocacy organization Jones founded prior to taking a position in the administration.
Sadly, the Obama administration appears to be wavering in its support of Jones. This is not acceptable. A decision to throw one of their most charismatic communicators under the bus in a vein attempt to placate a racist witch-hunt would be both foolish and ineffective. Van Jones is exactly the type of principled and effective leader we need more of in government — not less. President Obama should make a strong public statement as soon as possible, reiterating his full support for green jobs advisor Van Jones.

Which is exactly why I believe that we all know in our hearts that we can NOT wait until 2012 to do something about the REAL problem. Obama is going to destroy this country as fast as he can, we cannot afford to wait. We need those in the media, like Glenn Beck, to make sure that all of the Van Jones, Rev. Wright-types are DIRECTLY connected back to Obama. I’m all for impeachment. Biden may be stupid, but I think I’d rather have ‘stupid’ for three more years.
He won't leave, as long as he can live for free off the taxpayer's dime.
.......Im all for impeachment......
That is not a viable possibility. Think of something else.
Naw - run him out, and then go after the next commie. Obambi's got a whole fleet of communist czars. Just keep hammering them, one at a time. With each one we expose, Obambi loses just a little more political 'capital'.
The feeling is mutual!!!!
In six months, 90 percent of the country will be looking for Regime change and whatever it takes to make that happen.
“Dont lose focus on 0bama, however. We must tie Van Jones to 0bama and make 0bama pay dearly (politically) for his usurpation and subversion.”
Excellent post and this is SOOO important. And there are plenty of other Van Jones’ out there who are connected to Obama...all of them need to be exposed as such.
