Today, Van Jones, Obama's green jobs czar resigned his position. And I have to say, thank goodness.
van Jones was the latest in a number of highly flawed appointments by Obama. Jones was a self described "rowdy communist" who believed that the US government was behind the September 11th attacks.
According to investigative reporter Aaron Klein, Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. STORM's manifesto sates that the organization has a strong "commitment to the fundamental ideas of Marxism-Leninism." "We agreed with Lenin's analysis of the state and the party," reads the manifesto. "And we found inspiration in the revolutionary strategies developed by Third World revolutionaries like Mao Tse-tung and Amilcar Cabral." Cabral is the late Marxist revolutionary leader of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands. STORM worked with known communist leaders.
This appointment is another sign that Obama is a closet Socialist who wants to transform America, from an economic superpower into one of the European socialist welfare states.
