  • Leftists Go After Van Jones for Working With Trump Admin on Police Reform

    I don’t like Van Jones’s politics, but I respect him for crossing the line when needed and saying the things that everyone needs to hear. The left first went after him when he dared to say that blacks need to worry more about the “white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter.” Now they’re attacking for having the nerve to work with President Donald Trump’s administration on police reform...but alas, the left has slammed Jones for his actions. Several associates said he “is motivated as much by personal advancement, fame and access to power and money as by altruism.” Others claim Jones is...

    CNN’s Van Jones was not impressed by Donald Trump’s latest speech from the White House, but he did give the president credit for the substance of his executive order on police reform. Jones joined his colleagues on Tuesday to discuss Trump’s address, which was laden with several of the president’s usual talking points and attacks against his political enemies. For the most part, Jones pushed Trump’s remarks to the side and called the order a positive development for future reforms. “There is movement in the direction of a database for bad cops. We have never had a federal database for...

    Van Jones weighs in on President Donald Trump's comments on race relations at an economic roundtable event in Dallas on Thursday and what he believes is a "populist uprising against the status quo." (snip) VAN JONES, CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: "...The dominoes are falling in one direction through corporate America, through the young people of America. The irony here is that Donald Trump got into office by navigating the choppy waters of a populist uprising in the country in our party, you have the Bernie Sanders uprising in his party with a Donald Trump uprising. He should understand and recognize a...

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    Protests and riots have now taken place in more US states than they haven't. They were spurred by the death of George Floyd last Monday in Minneapolis, and while an officer in the case has been taken into custody and charges have been laid against him, the protests have continued. Speaking on CNN on Friday, pundit and commentator Van Jones laid much of the blame for the turmoil at the hands of white Americans. He put some of the blame on civil rights activists. He was speaking to podcaster W. Kamau Bell about the history and legacy of white supremacy...

    CNN’s Van Jones said a “white, liberal Hillary Clinton supporter” could pose a bigger threat to African Americans than the Ku Klux Klan on Friday morning when discussing the state of race relations in the United States following the violent protests that erupted in Minneapolis, and the false accusations made against an African-American man by a white woman in Central Park in New York City. “It’s not the racist white person, who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It’s the white, liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell...

    It's not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It's the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now, you know, people like that, 'I don't see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all as the same, I give to charities,' but the minute she sees a black man who she does not respect or who she has a slight thought against, she weaponized race like she had been trained by the Aryan nation. A Klansmember...

    As journalists have come under attack for accepting and forwarding Chinese propaganda about the coronavirus they unleashed from Wuhan, the National Association of Black Journalists was forced on Tuesday to cancel a panel discussion with CNN host Van Jones and former CNN analyst Roland Martin on the "rise of misinformation" on the virus when it became controversial due to its financial backer -- Huawei, a telecom giant connected to the Chinese communist government that's been indicted for racketerring and conspiracy to steal trade secrets. In a statement, the NABJ explained/complained: "It had come under attack because controversial technology giant Huawei...

    Did anybody happen to catch the CNN post mortem on the demonicRAT debate? I couldn't tell who aksed the question but I think it might have been Fredo the Coomo, he was wondering what was wrong with the demonicRAT candidates and Van Jones said they were defective. They were not cutting the cheese.Well, obviously the solution to that problem is to draft Eric Swalwell. He's great at cutting the cheese.

    CNN analyst Van Jones appears to recognize a political head-on collision before it happens. He’s now warning leftist viewers to wake up to the realities of what can occur with Trump’s next run for the White House in 2020, according to his appearance on a panel in the aftermath of the president’s SOTU speech. One of the most worrisome moments for Van Jones was the president’s pitch for improved education for African-Americans. “You may not like it,” Van Jones cautioned his fellow panelists, “but he mentioned HBCU’s (historically black colleges and universities), have been struggling for a long time, a...

    CNN contributor Van Jones warned fellow panelists, and Democrats in general, on Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump was helping African-Americans “in real life” and reaching out to them for their vote in 2020. Jones was reacting to the president’s State of the Union address, in which the president mentioned several efforts to help African-Americans specifically: What he was saying to African-Americans can be effective. You may not like it, but he mentioned HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] — our black colleges have been struggling for a long time, a bunch of them have gone under — he threw...

    PJ Media ^ | 01/15/2020 | Michael Van Der Galien
    It doesn't happen often, but every now and then, CNN invites a progressive who's not afraid to criticize his comrades-in-arms. Whatever you think of the man, you've got to admit that Van Jones is such a leftist. He's willing to take on fellow Democrats, even if doing so makes him unpopular in elitist-leftist circles.Immediately after Tuesday's incredibly boring debate, Jones blasted the Democratic presidential candidates for a) going after each other and b) being, well, weak. With regards to the former point of criticism, he had some especially harsh words for Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. "As a progressive, to...

    During CNN’s coverage of Tuesday’s CNN Democratic presidential debate, CNN Political Commentator and former Obama adviser Van Jones said that the debate was “dispiriting” because he didn’t see anything that would be able to defeat President Trump. Jones said, “As a progressive, to see those two [2020 Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT)] have that level of vitriol was very dispiriting. And I want to say that tonight for me was dispiriting. Democrats are going to have to do better than what we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw tonight that would be able...

    Tuesday’s Democratic debate clash between Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders may have stemmed from their respective election strategies as next month’s Iowa caucuses draw closer, but it left CNN’s progressive commentator Van Jones shaking his head. “To see those two have that level of vitriol was very dispiriting,” Jones said during a network panel discussion after the debate in Des Moines, Iowa, less than three weeks before the Iowa caucuses. It also left him thinking Democrats were unlikely to defeat President Trump in November, he said.

    Former Obama administration adviser Van Jones accused Hillary Clinton of smearing presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) "with no facts." Clinton accused Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, of acting as a "Russian asset" on Friday. Jones dismissed Clinton's criticism as a "complete smear" that spread "disinformation." "She's playing a very dangerous game," he told CNN. "Hillary Clinton, if you're concerned about disinformation, what the Russians do is they spread disinformation, they get us divided against each other. That is what just happened, just throw out some information, disinformation, smear somebody." The failed 2016 Democratic nominee accused Gabbard and 2016...

    President Trump called out CNN’s Van Jones during a black leadership summit for not thanking him for his achievements in criminal justice reform. Speaking to an audience attending the Young Black Leadership Summit held at the White House Friday, the president took a shot at Jones and MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton when he got to the topic of the much-lauded bipartisan criminal justice reform bill that was passed last year. “So Van Jones was on about two weeks ago, and he came to me, and I am telling you, he was so nice,” Trump said at the summit hosted...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset,” arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clinton’s criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.” “The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. “Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    CNN contributor Van Jones told Democrats the President Trump impeachment issue was a no-win situation. "It’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans, it makes them want to rally around the flag," Jones said Thursday on CNN. "When I was anti-Bill Clinton from the Left in the '90s, and then they tried to impeach him, suddenly Clinton was my best friend. I was like, 'Leave Bill Clinton alone.' So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation," he said. Jones, 51, also warned that Democrats...

    VIDEO Following the first Democrat candidate debate in Detroit, CNN's Van Jones claimed that "WE" are all still in therapy over the 2016 election. Well, Jones was probably thinking of himself as well as his CNN colleagues along with many other liberals but for the rest of us, WE are still celebrating the 2016 election results. However, as depressing as the 2016 election result was for liberals, it will be nothing compared to their meltdown coming in 2020 following Trump's re-election. Look for the liberals to act as if they are infected with the rage virus from the movie "28...
