Van Jones is a puppet of the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party. He says all the right things to "sound" progressive. He lasted 6 months in the Obama administration before he was thrown under the bus because it was revealed by the right wing that he had signed a 911 Truth petition.
He has learned his lesson, and now realizes to not "rock the boat" if you want to stay relevant in liberal Democratic Party circles. This is why he not only still admires Obama the war criminal, torturer, Wall Street supporter, and Zionist collaborator (to name a few), but he also is now involved with promoting the new American Dream organization. The unspoken purpose of this new organization is to rally disgruntled Obama supporters and donors into a nationwide "movement" to save the American Dream. Then building up to the 2012 Presidential election shift support to Obama while frightening the "dreamers" into stopping the Republicans and saving the American Dream with Obama.
It is plain to see that Van Jones, an educated, and articulate African American, former Princeton Professor and attorney, has a higher calling. To gather the disappointed and disgruntled Obama liberals into an organization that will eventually support Obama for the 2012 election cycle.
Patricia, Cynthia, and Valerie take a closer look at all the red flags. Don't be so mesmerized by the "down to earth", y'all speech. Look deeper into how national and global politics works. It's brutal.
I heard Van on Hard Knock Radio too and the man is such a beacon of hope for us. So good too to hear KPFA tell us about any hope outside of the Democratic party. Yes, we are in trouble because of the never ending wars and the bankster bailout but we are also in trouble with our phony two party lock on our electoral party. Don't you see the collusion of these two corporate parties in the destruction of our democracy?
I signed up to join Rebuild the Dream and this is going to be a terrible fight between the working people of this nation against the plutocracy. Same thing is going on world wide. We need to control the insatiable greed of the very wealthy. We have to fight back!!
I finally felt some hope (not the bogus "hope you can believe in" B.S.), but true hope when I listened to Van, and I am feeling inspired to join the Reclaim America movement because we have to do something.
Everyone closes a blind eye to the loss of services here at home due to the cost of 6 illegal, endless wars that are making us unsafe. According to the Congressional Research Service document (5/29/11), "The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan and other Global War on Terror Operations Since 9/11", Congress has approved a total of $1.283 trillion for Afghanistan, Iraq and homeland security yet it does not address the other 4 wars we are engaged in (Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Pakistan).
All these wars are hemorrhaging our economy dry.
Citizens are being tricked into believing it's the public employee who is the problem instead of these illegal wars and the $700 billion taxpayer bailout of the banking industry who then gave themselves billion-dollar bonuses with our tax dollars. These budget cuts are happening nationwide. And, it's the top tenth of one percent who have more wealth than all of the nation put together, yet they pit us against each other grasping for the scrapes they throw at us.
Time for movement, time for action -- don't be a sheeple.
Van is beautiful always wonderful to hear his inspiring views. Thanks
