Not only is government getting hard to trust, but the media is untrustworthy as well. It has never been more clear than now. Heard of Van Jones? Not if you read or watch main stream news you haven’t. Van Jones just resigned as President Obama’s Green Jobs Czar or Tsar. A Czar or Tsar does not need the advice and consent of Congress. Too bad. Here is a list of Van Jones “past” activities:
- He spent half a year in jail and came out as a self described communist.
- Signed a 9/11 Truther statement.
- Called President Bush a “crackhead.”
- Helped set up a protest for Mumia Abu Jamal.
This is just a quick summary and not everything. Okay, let’s say you disagree with his views on these. That is all well and good and nobody should be denied a position in government over disagreement. But this is not only extreme, the people should have been in “the know” about it. The main stream media is reporting on Van Jones now, but still ignoring his past for the most part. They are calling him a “past activist” and not using specifics. Do you really want a self avowed communist in the White House? How about a 9/11 Truther? And someone who is unanswerable to Congress which means he is unanswerable to the people. No wonder nobody trusts President Obama. Why would you appoint this man, Mr. President? Why would you appoint a man who thinks the United States government and others purposefully allowed 3,000 innocent people to die on September 11, 2001. Shame on you. Shame on the media for never investigating this man.
This is not about politics. Even if you are a Democrat, this should make you distrustful. People need to stop accepting these kinds of situations just because it helps their political cause. What other White House Czars have shady pasts?
