Van Jones Has a New Job

van jonesRemember Van Jones,  the avowed Marxist whom Obama named as the green jobs czar? And who later resigned after being outed by Glenn Beck?  According to Newsbusters, Jones is now affiliated with a group called Stop the Witch Hunt.org,

“a new left-wing organization created specifically to attack Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, Pat Buchanan, and Paul Brown…”

Stop the witch hunt

As has been the case with other socialist-marxist connections, there is also in this case an intricate web of organizations with varying, sometimes changing, names.

A press release issued by Reuters on Thursday Oct 29th, 2009, announced the new organization:

StopTheWitchHunt.org is

a newly formed multimedia watch dog portal that will use social media and

mobile communications to take a grassroots stand and “call out” the

mischaracterizations and hate speech that has been going on for too long.


Newsbusters investigated and found that there is a labyrinth of connections between Stop the Witch Hunt.org and the former “green jobs czar”, Van Jones. Read the details here>>>

President Obama Won’t Talk Climate Change in Copenhagen

Did he have a change of heart? That just sounds weird that Obama won’t talk climate change. Not to worry:

From Ace of Spades HQ>>>>

Fortunately, plans for global wealth redistribution (enrobed in phony environmentalism) are foundering on the objections of India and China. So it looks like there won’t be anything for Obama to sign, anyway.

Apparently, the Indians and Chinese recognize the direct connection between carbon emissions and standard of living. Having had more recent experience in that condition, they understand how living in a less-industrialized state is major suckage and misery. Not some Rousseauian fantasy that persists among the Birkenstocked crowd.

We dodged the bullet this time America thanks to India and China. This gives us more time. Thank you Lord Monckton for waking us up!

According to an article published yesterday, Oct 20, 2009 in the Telegraph.uk

American spies are investing in technology designed to monitor websites including blogs, Twitter, YouTube and even reading habits on Amazon.

According to Wired magazine, In-Q-Tel has put money into Visible Technologies, a software firm that specialises in monitoring the internet.

According to the Telegraph.uk article, In-Q-Tel is the investment arm of the CIA, set up by the US Government in 1999. The software company Visible Technologies already monitors information for companies such as Microsoft, Hormel Foods and Xerox to determine whether what is being said about their products is positive, negative, mixed or neutral.

The Telegraph article surmises that this technology could be used for national security to monitor terrorist communications.

“Anything that is out in the open is fair game for collection,” said Steven Aftergood, of the Federation of American Scientists.

He added, however, that it would be “problematic” if information was used for unauthorised domestic investigations.

“Intelligence agencies or employees might be tempted to use the tools at their disposal to compile information on political figures, critics, journalists or others, and to exploit such information for political advantage. That is not permissible even if all of the information in question is technically ‘open source.'”

How likely would it be for our government to compile information on “political figures, critics, or  journalists…” to be used for “political advantage”? Surely not….

purple shirtsRemember this?>>> Oct 5th story from our blog?

News from Michelle Malkin>>> yesterday’s blog:

“SEIU-endorsed Gov. Pat Quinn signed an executive order in June approving collective bargaining by “individual providers of home-based support services” — effectively busting open the doors of private homes for the Purple Shirts of the SEIU and other union competitors hungry for new dues-paying members. SEIU and its minions leaned hard on providers to join — even sending out-of-state workers to intrude on families with the promise of juicy benefits and health care coverage. Democrat officials tried to intimidate parents like Pam Harris into silence over their efforts to inform providers that they could vote for no representation.

The thuggery backfired. Bigtime.”

See this article from CBS Channel 2 Chicago>>>

Thanks to the efforts of the families caring for disabled family members in their homes, this attempt did not stand:

This from Michelle Malkin’s Oct 5th post:

“Pam Harris of Western Springs, Illinois, the mother of a 20-year-old son with severe developmental disabilities who receives in-home care stipends, questioned the state’s failure to make a no-representation option clear. She and other parents dared to criticize the union effort publicly in a piece published September 3 in the Chicago Tribune. (”I am not an employee of the state,” Harris said. “I work from my home. I don’t want the union in my home. I can Norma Rae with the rest of them.”) Harris and other parents scraped together their own money (no match for Big Labor coffers) and put together an informational flyer to counter-balance the pro-union propaganda and inform home-based providers that they could opt for no union representation.”

Way to Go Pam Harris of Illinois!!
