    CNN commentator Van Jones said Glenn Youngkin's in the Virginia governor's race could be evidence of the emergence of "the delta variant of Trumpism." Jones suggested that Youngkin, who welcomed Trump's endorsement in the contest but also sought a distance from the former president, represented the same kind of politics as Trump. But Jones said it came in a packaging that could be better sold to voters and that might help the GOP win elections. "When this election is over we will know, have we seen the emergence of the delta variant of Trumpism," Jones said Tuesday evening during CNN's...

    The co-hosts of "The Five" blasted President Biden Thursday for his administration's failures which even the liberal mainstream media have begun to recognize. As Biden's poll numbers drop amid inflation and supply chain shortages, at least one left-wing voice has turned on his own. "The honeymoon is over," political commentator Van Jones declared Tuesday on CNN. "This honeymoon was over faster than Ilhan Omar and her brother," "The Five" co-host Greg Gutfeld retorted. "The real question for people like Van Jones is, ‘What did you expect?’," co-host Katie Pavlich said. She called Biden a "lame-duck president," citing his inability to...

    Leftist activists have already been pushing Mastercard, Visa, and others to expand their ban beyond illegal activities, with the eventual goal of demonetarizing opposing political views.Last week, Mastercard, Inc., announced new rules for banks processing credit card payments to pornography websites, designed to combat child pornography and sex trafficking. Unfortunately, for a country whose corporate overlords refuse (or are unable) to distinguish between intrinsic evil and prudential policy judgments, this promising development will likely also serve as a beta test to further attack conservative groups.In December, Mastercard and Visa banned the use of their credit cards on the Pornhub website...

    CNN political commentator Van Jones said Monday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” that if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin were not found guilty of killing George Floyd, America would be in a “dangerous position as a country.” Jones said, “Everybody I’m talking to are frustrated, re-triggered, re-traumatized. Seeing that video, seeing the complete contempt for life. You have a generation of African-Americans and their allies — I’m talking this entire young generation—that is watching this to see if America — listen, the system is on trial here. The system is on trial. and I can’t tell you, people have...

When he talked about I’m going to heal the soul of America, a lot of people thought that was some corny stuff.

    SNIP “He felt like they were rude, and he was completely blindsided by how they questioned him. He was not happy about how the interview went. It was unprofessional,” a TV source told Page Six. Jones appeared on the show to promote his new documentary, “The Reunited States,” produced with “The View” co-host Meghan McCain. But the interview took an unexpected turn when the show’s Sunny Hostin, and part-time co-host Ana Navarra, took Jones to task for his past association with the Trump administration. “There are those who really accuse you of being an opportunist, a chameleon so to speak,...

    During his network’s coverage of President Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony, CNN political commentator Van Jones said that he was crying with joy while watching the first few hours of the Biden administration. Jones said, “It’s just memorizing to watch a functional government doing functional government type things. I mean, just a press conference, and there was a human, and the person said words, and the words made sense. Then somebody asked a question, and then the person answered the question, and you are just crying. Oh my God.”

    CNN analyst Van Jones was overcome with emotion Saturday upon the news that Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, as projected by the Associated Press. "It's easier to be a parent this morning,” Jones said on camera as he struggled to hold back tears. “ It's easier to tell your kids: 'Character matters, it matters. Telling the truth matters. Being a good person matters.’” “It’s easier for a whole lot of people. If you're Muslim in this country, you don't have to worry.

I wanted to remind this: Pence calls on Van Jones to resign By MARTIN KADY II   09/04/2009 02:47 PM EDT Rep. Mike Pence, the no. 3 Republican in the House, is calling on Obama green jobs czar Van Jones to resign. This sort of thing would usually be laughed off by Democrats -- a conservative Republican telling a Democratic appointee to quit. But the Obama team isn't exactly jumping to back Jones today in wake of revelations that...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/22/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    If one judges Joe Biden's convention speech by the standards of past convention speeches, whether Democrat or Republican, it was decidedly mediocre.  He had a lot of platitudes, he spouted lies, and he plagiarized.  In other words, it was what we've come to expect from Joe Biden during his 47 years in politics. For Biden's supporters, though, which means those who hate Trump, it was a satisfying performance.  Unfortunately, Joe may not have enough of those supporters to make a difference come November.  This Democrat convention may have been the first time in American political history that a candidate's speech, rather than giving him the...

    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...

(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.

    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”...
