When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2008 his campaign slogan was "change that we can believe in" but as the columnist Jackie Cushman has written "We were told to vote for change we could believe in and found we had elected people who wanted to change what we believe. I find that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are forcing their Leftist-Socialist agenda down our throats with blatant disregard for what the American people want or desire. It concerns me that our President has misrepresented the facts and his stance on many occasions and that he has surrounded himself with advisors and confidants who have pasts that are downright scary. For this post I want to introduce you to some of these people that have the ear of the president and are his close friends.
One of the first I would like to discuss is Van Jones. President Obama made Jones the Special Advisor to White House Council for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation even though Jones is the founder of a radical communist organization. Jones had also signed a petition accusing President Bush of being involved in 9/11.
According to Aaron Kline (The Manchurian President Chapter 10), Jones is the founder and leader of the communist revolutionary organization STORM which stands for Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement. STORM which was organized in 1994 is one of the most influential radical groups in the San Francisco area. By his own admission Jones became a communist after the Rodney King riots in 1992. He has boasted to The East Bay Express that his environmental activism is a means to fight for racial and class "justice". STORM's official manifesto "Reclaiming Revolution" was on the internet until Aaron Kline and others wrote about it. The Manifesto states that Jones has a "commitment to the fundamental ideas of Marxism Leninism". "We agreed with Lenin's analysis of the state and the party," "And we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Zedong and Amilcar Cabral."
Jones has hosted rallies that were "an anti-imperialist line" that were in solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans that were sympathetic to the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world." He was also the keynote speaker at a rally for the launch of the national Maoist terrorist supporting antiwar group, Not In Our Name founded by Revolutionary Communists which urges resistance against the United States Government. In 2005 Jones classified the United States as an "apartheid regime". He urges "resistance against the police, spreading the wealth, changing the whole system. Jones is also a member of the Apollo alliance, which we will discuss in future posts.
Van Jones is just one of the many advisors that surround President Barack Obama whose background should preclude him from any contact with anyone in our government let alone the top leader in the land, but there are many more that we will discuss in future posts.
