  • CNN's Van Jones: Impeachment is 'a lose-lose situation' for Democrats

    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: an Jones Claims "WE" Are All in Therapy Over 2016 Election

    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...

    The New American ^ | 25 January 2017 | William F. Jasper
    The day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Linda Sarsour ascended the global stage at the Women’s March on Washington. Although not as famous as other speakers — Madonna, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Ashley Judd, Angel a Davis, Van Jones — she is proving to be equally controversial. Sarsour (shown), a co-chair of the march, is a "Muslim feminist" and well-known Soros-funded activist in New York City, where she is executive director of the Arab Amer ican Association of New York (AAANY) and a director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), a radical migrant-refugee "rights" organization. She is also, say critics, connected...

    .... Jones, during a panel discussion on CNN’s “State of the Union,” argued that anyone who talked about other people the way the president spoke about Cummings and his home district in Baltimore would be taken out of the kindergarten classroom and made to sit in the hallway. .... “I don’t think the Republicans can get out of it this time. Let’s be fair. If the president said, all right, you don’t like the border, clean up your back yard. That is fair,” Jones conceded. “He went beyond that and said no human being would want to live in Baltimore....

    A CNN panel on Cuomo Prime Time dissolved into chaos as Cuomo and his two guests, Van Jones and Steve Cortes, got into a heated argument and constantly interrupted one another over Donald Trump’s attacks on the 1989 Central Park Five rape case in New York City. “I’m not going to let you lie,” Jones declared when Cortes began to question the innocence of the five men who were convicted and then, years later, fully exonerated from the crime. That infamous case of law enforcement abuse and false imprisonment exploded back into the news on Monday after the president tweeted...

    The liberal uproar that ensued after former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort was sentenced to a ‘mere’ 47 months in federal prison said more about their true nature than any of their shallow virtue signaling ever could. Because as it turns out, when it comes to criminal justice, liberals are far more about vengeance, forced ‘equality,’ sick sadism, and wielding the system as a bludgeon against their political enemies than they are about what is actually good for society.I know. I know. Criminal justice and sentencing reform were issues compassionate liberals and conservatives alike were supposed to be able to...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/03/19 | Matthew Vadum
    Michelle Malkin is angry about this, as all conservatives should be. Malkin points out, Jones has been trying to stop conservatives from speaking for years. The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) allowed America-hating admitted communist Van Jones to speak on the main stage two days ago on Feb. 28, 2019. To allow this disgusting, unreformed, black-nationalist Maoist to speak at CPAC, an annual event many movement conservatives considered to be their sanctum sanctorum, is truly disturbing. He was there for an on-stage chat with ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp about the conservative contribution to emptying the prisons, or as the Koch...

    Rep. Joe Kennedy said he hopes for the sake of the country and the integrity of the US election process that special counsel Robert Mueller turns up nothing in his Russia investigation. "It is probably too much to hope that what Mueller's report is actually going to say is, 'Nothing to see here, nobody did anything wrong, we got everyone already and case closed.' That's what I hope it says," the Massachusetts Democrat told Van Jones on "The Van Jones Show," airing Saturday on CNN at 7 p.m. ET. Sources told CNN on Wednesday that Attorney General Bill Barr is...

    Van Jones, You Are Missing the Point About Jussie Smollett I’m not supposed to say this. After all. I’m white. And male. And conservative.So, by default, I’m part of the problem. Guilty. Of something.Even though the Jussie Smollett story was a total hoax, we are to believe that it revealed the real problem in America. Angry white supremacists are destroying the country. Voting for Trump is akin to membership in the KKK. War has been declared against the African American community.Nothing can threaten that narrative.And so, even if the Smollett story is false, it’s actually still true.At least some pundits...

    Moments after Chicago cops laid out their case against Smollett, the CNN pundit made the eyebrow-raising comparison during a conversation with anchor Kate Bolduan. “This is the fall of an icon and I don’t think people understand how important he has been in the black community. ‘Empire’ as a show, to have him as a beloved character, I think did a great deal to knock back homophobia in the black community,” Jones said. “The fact that he has been celebrated and you see homophobia in the black community through his eyes on the show, this is a Jackie Robinson against...

    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...

    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...

    CNN ^ | November 9, 2018 | Van Jones
    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...

    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....
