    A look at the Sunrise Movement and its socialist dreams. The Sunrise Movement (SM) is a 501(c)(4) environmental advocacy organization that, while denying that it is loyal to either “the right or left” side of the political spectrum, in fact throws its full support behind left-wing Democratic Party candidates and agendas. Most notably, SM endorses the enactment of a “Green New Deal,” environmental legislation whose multifaceted mission is to eliminate all fossil-fuel use from the U.S. economy (in favor of renewables like wind and solar energy) by the year 2030; create a “basic income program” and a federal jobs guarantee...

  • New Criminal Justice Reform Law Releases Violent Felons, Not Peaceful Drug Dealers

    If Van Jones, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kim Kardashian all agree on a bill, it’s probably not a good idea. Republicans and Democrats came together to pass the FIRST STEP Act into law this month, which will allow felons early release. It’s being touted as a criminal justice system overhaul, to let nonviolent offenders out of prison for good behavior. But as Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who graduated from Harvard Law School, observed, “there are almost no low-level, non-violent offenders in federal prison.” If they are in prison for low-level convictions, it’s because they were allowed to plea down to a...
  • Don't let Brian Kemp steal Georgia's gubernatorial election

    If we are honest, the early conventional wisdom was Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams had zero chance of beating Republican Brian Kemp. She is a progressive black woman running for governor against a conservative white man in a deep-red state that Trump won handily in 2016. But the truth is: Her campaign was so good, and she is so compelling, that Abrams would almost certainly be governor-elect right now -- if the election had been fair. As the final votes are tallied, Kemp enjoys a razor-thin margin -- but it is the product of misconduct so brazen and unethical...
  • ‘Heartbreaking’: CNN Reluctantly Admits There Was No ‘Blue Wave’

    With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.” His evidence was Democrats failing to take Kentucky’s sixth district: Now, there are all sorts of ways Democrats can regain the House without Amy McGrath having defeated incumbent Congressman...

    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum graduated from an Oakland, California-based training school for progressive revolutionaries that has spawned a list of activists who have gone on to become the who’s who of the far-left leadership world, with many taking senior positions at organizations financed by billionaire George Soros. In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nation’s largest funders of progressive groups. Soros’s own Open Society Foundations sent top staff to Rockwood for training....

    While the immediate reaction on CNN’s Wolf Friday afternoon to former President Barack Obama’s angry, bitter speech against President Trump was more timid than expected in avoiding an Obama lovefest, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin and her experts came through in reminding us that this is a network of The Resistance. Baldwin first went to CNN weekend host and former Obama official Van Jones, telling him that Obama definitely had “been sitting on” his critiques of Trump for sometime but “today, he did not hold back.”CNN Newsroom Waves Pom-Poms for Obama’s ‘Extraordinary Rebuke’; So ‘Arresting’With that, Jones was off...

    Kim Kardashian West made her second Oval Office visit to speak with President Trump on behalf of a prison inmate Wednesday, joined by former U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp, who personally asked Trump to reverse a life sentence he issued. Kardashian West and Sharp were accompanied by #cut50 co-founder and Democratic pundit Van Jones for a discussion that lasted about 20-30 minutes, Sharp told the Washington Examiner. Trump asked about Chris Young, 30, who was arrested at 22 and received a life sentence for dealing drugs, but also brought up Matthew Charles, who returned to prison this year after a...

    CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.” The lengthy segment started with the guests naturally asking Jones what he thought about the White House banning his colleague Kaitlan Collins from the Rose Garden yesterday. He blasted the action, saying she did the right and only...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been "painful" and "uncomfortable," but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue. "They're hard, they're painful, they're uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about," Scott told CNN's Van Jones. "He didn't change his perspective, I certainly can't change my perspective." But Scott also said that he was "hopeful" after the conversations. "The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful," Scott recalled. "It closed...

    A disturbing reminder of who our President chose to serve as his co-president — and why. Barack Obama’s closest and most influential adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has never been an enigma. She was, after all, the person most responsible for bringing the revolutionary communist Van Jones into the Administration six years ago, so her bona fides as a radical extremist have long been obvious to anyone who wasn’t afraid to notice. But a newly released report from Judicial Watch, which examines key FBI documents related to Jarrett’s many family ties to hardcore Communists, brings bold color to what previously were gray...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones blamed the ”moral collapse inside of our political system” for Roseanne Barr’s derogatory tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. Jones said, “Some things apparently are more important than money, even to a big corporation like ABC-Disney, and that is very heartening because we’ve been in a moral freefall for at least three years. To my point of view, one of the great things is — it is, in fact, important that red-state America be better represented in the media. But they can have a...

    Van Jones like Kanye West and Roseanne Barr are now adding supporting Donald Trump and his White House. Was it expected that success attracts success? Donald Trump has been consistently winning. Trump has stated that people will become tired of winning. With all the winning people might also get tired of something else -- tired of all the insane hatred and rage thrown at them from the left. Now will the left apply pressure on Van Jones like they did with Kanye? Are they going to ostracize Van and have nothing to do with him -- just like they did...

    Waffle house hero James Shaw Jr. refused to take the bait when CNN’s Van Jones tried to get him to slam President Trump. The 29-year-old who took down the shooter who opened fire and killed four people at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee last month, remained humble and classy despite the attempt by Jones. Asked if he had heard from the president since the shooting, which left Shaw with minor injuries as he wrestled the gun away from alleged shooter, Travis Reinking, the hero said not yet. “I haven’t heard anything, but that’s not to say he didn’t try...

    The moral of the Van Jones’ story is this: Old commies never die off, they just get picked up and recycled over at CNN. In my best Brooklynese accent, Van Jones’ has got some ‘noive’ going after Fox News for supposedly “normalizing” Rudy Giuliani’s so called “treasonous language” on the Deep State. “Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” former Obama administration green jobs czar and network contributor Van Jones attacked Rudy Giuliani for saying on Fox News that the FBI behaved like “stormtroopers” when they raided Michael Cohen’s office was “treasonous language.”

    To kick of his Sunday evening show on CNN March 11, host Van Jones warmly welcomed media mogul Oprah Winfrey by fangirling over how much he missed seeing her on television and pleading with her to give "us" “hope” for America’s future, with President Trump in office. “We miss you so much! Do you miss us?” the CNN host eagerly greeted the media personality the left so desperately wanted to run against Trump in 2020. “It meant so much to us,” Jones praised, [but] I have to let you know how it is for us now,” he said somberly.

    Gun violence is rocking our world again -- and our politics. But even as political rancor runs high, Americans' views are dramatically shifting. A poll released Tuesday by Quinnipiac shows that 66%, or two-thirds of Americans, now want stricter gun control laws -- the highest recorded by Quinnipiac University since it started polling the issue after Sandy Hook. According to the poll, support for tougher gun laws has jumped almost 20 points since December 2015. It also found a ban on assault weapons was backed by 67% of those surveyed.

    CNN’s “State of the Union” panel ripped former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign Sunday one day after staffers corralled the press behind a rope as Clinton walked in a Fourth of July parade in New Hampshire. The panel consisting of CNN contributors S.E. Cupp and Van Jones, The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee, and CNN political reporter Jeff Zeleny roasted Clinton’s rope line, with Jones calling it “the worst visual metaphor” for her campaign. “This is humiliating for reporters who have to abide by Hillary Clinton’s rules of journalism,” Cupp told host Jake Tapper. “And it’s not...
