Video: Glenn Beck’s Expose Of Obama’s Communist Green Czar, Van Jones (UPDATED)

Hey, you moderates who voted for Obama…is this the sort of hope and change you had in mind? Commies in the White House, answerable only to Obama?:

UPDATE:

Via Don Surber, according to the The LA Times:

The group that organized the advertising boycott of the Glenn Beck show?  Color of Change , co-founded by non other than Van Jones.

“Fox News host Glenn Beck used his popular show Monday to attack the background of Van Jones, a White House environmental adviser and co-founder of an African American political advocacy group that organized an advertising boycott of his program.”

***

Beck’s assault on Jones came as Color of Change announced that it had secured commitments from 36 companies who pledged not to advertise on Beck’s program, including Wal-Mart and Sprint.

A complete list of Obama’s 44 czars  can be found here.

Positions being planned:

  1. Income redistribution czar
  2. Land-use czar
  3. Mortgage czar, formally “consumer financial protection czar” (source)
  4. Radio-internet fairness czar
  5. Student loan czar, to oversee a program of mandatory service in return for college money (source)
  6. Voter list czar
  7. Zoning czar

The New York Times recently brought to our attention to the fact  that Obama has filled only 43 percent of the 543 policy making jobs in his first seven months.

Some speculate that the reason  for  this  is because he’d rather skip the vetting  processes and empower these Czars:

some with ethical clouds, all undermining the Senate’s constitutional role advice and consent.

Alarmed?

I suspect most of the people reading this blog are. We should be. We need to be, so we can continue to be motivated enough to  fight this.

And we need to be armed with the knowledge of what we are up against.

Read: Obama: The Cloward-Piven Strategy & Alinsky Power Tactics

Obama’s whole campaign was built on platitudes. He’s still speaking in platitudes, as though his very presence will make magic happen. With broad platitudes, congressional power and a flurry of legislative initiatives, Barry is seeking to place his socialist footprint in practically every move he makes. And, you need to understand the tactics.

All politicians are temporary stewards of this nation. It is not their task however to remake the founding of this country. It is not their task to tear it apart and rebuild it in their image. Barry thinks otherwise. Almost daily, Barry is playing politics with policy.

He has all these dreams and visions of a utopia. And, even with soft GOP opposition, it won’t happen. But the president has too steep a learning curve facing him, and his performance so far makes it clear that he doesn’t take direction, suggestion or education well.

Read the whole thing, it’s long, but well worth your time.

UPDATE:

Another must read from David Horowitz also deals with Cloward-Piven Strategy:

Obama’s Communist Advisor and His Billion-Dollar Army

I’m in NY where I’ll be headed to the Fox studios in a few hours to tape the “Glenn Beck Show.” The segment I’m doing will be aired Thursday as part of a week-long series called “The New Republic,” which is Glenn’s look at the radical agendas of the Obama Administration. Last night, with Pat Caddell as his guest, Glenn made the connection between the trillion-dollar defcits Obama is deliberately running up and the Cloward-Piven strategy devised by two Columbia radicals to bankrupt the welfare system in New York in order to create a crisis that would generate radical change.

Although the show failed to mention it, this was a strategy first identified in a book I wrote a couple of years ago with Richard Poe called The Shadow Party. That book described the coalition of Communist and anarchist radicals, Democratic Party honchos, and multi-billionaires that the malevolent George Soros put together before the 2004 presidential campaign. The Shadow Party is now the party in power and running the show.

Chuck Norris zeros in on the part of the health care bill that deals with government intrusion in child rearing.

Dirty Secret No. 1 in Obamacare

Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government’s coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development.

It’s outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading “home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children.” The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills.

The bill says that the government agents, “well-trained and competent staff,” would “provide parents with knowledge of age-appropriate child development in cognitive, language, social, emotional, and motor domains … modeling, consulting, and coaching on parenting practices,” and “skills to interact with their child to enhance age-appropriate development.”

Are you kidding me?! With whose parental principles and values? Their own? Certain experts’? From what field and theory of childhood development? As if there are one-size-fits-all parenting techniques! Do we really believe they would contextualize and personalize every form of parenting in their education, or would they merely universally indoctrinate with their own?

As Hedrick would say, “STAY AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN!”

Oh Yeah, Despite Obama’s Repeated Assertions to the Contrary, ObamaCare Would Finance Abortions

I forgot to mention Obama’s abortion claim in my post about Obama’s desperate and cynical conference call to religious leaders August 19; the one where he accused his opponents of “bearing false witness” and of “divisive and deceptive attacks”.

The Washington Times opines:

A number of the president’s counterclaims were dubious, but his most demonstrably false statement was: “You’ve heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true.”

That’s not what Associated Press reports. On Aug. 5, an AP story was headlined “Gov’t insurance would allow coverage for abortion.” There’s no wiggle room in that headline – or in the legislation. As AP reported: “Since abortion is a legal medical procedure, experts on both sides say not mentioning it would allow health care plans in the new insurance exchange to provide unrestricted coverage…. In the Senate, the plan passed by the health committee is still largely silent on the abortion issue. Staff aides confirmed that the public plan — and private insurance offered in the exchange — would be allowed to cover abortion, without funding restrictions…. Abortion opponents are seeking a prohibition against using any federal subsidies to pay for abortions or for any part of any costs of a health plan that offers abortion. Such a proposal was rejected by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.”

House and Senate sponsors defeated a total of seven different attempts, in four committees, to restrict the use of federal funds for abortions. In the House, an amendment successfully sponsored by Rep. Lois Capps, California Democrat, specifically provides for abortion coverage. For instance, Section 4 (B) reads as follows: “Abortions for Which Public Funding Is Allowed. — The services described in this subparagraph are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted. . ..”

Keep reading. Bottom line. Obama’s lying while accusing ObamaCare opponents of  “bearing false witness”…the man has no shame. But, once again,  what else can you conclude about a guy who would tell the Pope to his face, that  “he would like to reduce the number of abortions in the United States” while promoting a plan that could create the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade?!

That really floors me.

At War with the Public

by Jennifer Rubin

After weeks of this and a mound of polling data to confirm what we are seeing and hearing, the president has yet to acknowledge that he hears what citizens are saying or understands the need to rethink health-care reform. He persists in decrying “misinformation”—implying that voters are dim and have been duped by nefarious forces. It is a politically dangerous place for a president to be—defaming voters and ignoring their pleas. It is one thing to go to war with the opposition party but quite another to go to war with voters. In his hubris, Obama has forgotten who is in charge.

Obama’s Plan To Dissociate 9/11 From Republicans And Turn It Into A Day Of Radical Community Organizing

Prepare to be shocked and disgusted.

Matthew Vadim, The American Spectator reports:

Obama’s Plan to Desecrate 9/11

The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.

This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year’s election campaign. The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it’s not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.

Wait ’til you hear who is heading up this cause:

The administration’s plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call run by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group’s senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.

Yearwood, who uses the honorific “Reverend” before his name, has been in the news in recent years, usually for getting arrested. After Democrats took back Congress, the rowdy activist was handcuffed outside a congressional hearing in September 2007 when Gen. David Petraeus was to testify. Yearwood told the “Democracy Now” radio program that he wanted to attend the hearing to hear Petraeus give his report. “I knew that when officers lie, soldiers die,” he said.

Who was in on the conference call, you ask?

A coalition including the unsavory left-wing pressure group Color of Change and about 60 far-left, environmentalist, labor, and corporate shakedown groups participated in the call. Groups on the call included: ACORN, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Community Action Partnership, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs, Friends of the Earth, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Mobilize.org, National Black Police Association, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, National Council of Negro Women, National Wildlife Federation, RainbowPUSH Coalition, Urban League, and Young Democrats of America.

Obama did famously promise ACORN and friends in Dec. 07, that he would let them help him shape his Presidential agenda.

That should have set off some warning bells…it did for me, anyway.

The Color of Change’s Van Jones, the self-described “communist” and “rowdy black nationalist”  who  became Obama’s green jobs czar, gushed that the National Day of Service will be a great opportunity “for people to connect, to find other people in your peer group who are also passionate about repowering America but also greening up America and cleaning up America.”

What any of that has to do with 9/11 is anyone’s guess.

MORE from Alice H at DoublePlusUndead:

There are only 11 national holidays, which leaves…crap, there’s not supposed to be math here…oh gosh, 353 days other than a day when nearly 3,000 Americans died at the hands of terrorists that you imbeciles could use as your day to plant shrubs and refuse to flush your toilets even if it’s brown and wear your solar-powered bras and pretend to be green for one day a year.  Do the idiots leading our country think there’s any tie whatsoever between why our citizens were mass murdered and ecofascism?  Did I miss some proclamation from Osama bin Laden that if we just quit being so damn wasteful, he’d quit getting his jollies from killing people?

Still MORE thoughts from Michelle Malkin:

Makes perfect sense coming from a president who believes that the root of 9/11 jihadi stems “from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers.”

Yes, I had forgotten about that.
