Who Was Van Jones: The Apollo File

The Apollo File :
Summary: The radical environmentalistsof the Apollo Alliance have tremendous clout with the Obama administration and Congress. The shadowy group is home tos elf-described communists and left-wingterrorists from the 1960s yet it somehow maintains a squeaky clean public image .In February lawmakers inserted into stimulus legislation its “green jobs” program, agovernment make-work project based on the fantasy that America could painlessly transition to an oil-free economy.

Ignored by the MSM, or Marginalized Socialistic Media as I referred to it, the Van Jones story has cooled down. Likely it will be out of the minds of most of the pubic, if President Obama's Administration has its way.

Van Jones called himself a small-c communist. That was years after that label had lost its shock value and the official party had self-destructed. When Van Jones was even a young Yalie, it has been noted that he was a pain in the neck to work with as a born-again eco-capitalist.

Van Jones is evidently charming, bright and charismatic. He is also arrogant and uncooperative. He has that quick intelligence that creates the power to move audiences, like President Obama.He is ambitious, and likes to be the center of attention in whatever he does.

Rumors say the same thing about Rahm Emanuel. Perhaps there is a story there of a clash. At some point Van Jones made his midnight decision with an email sort of resignation.

That left it up for the media to make up its own rationale. The populists who saw the recent revelations of the background of Van Jones claimed a victory for the more libertarian portion of the media. The collectivists claimed President Obama caved in to pressure from the more popular media like the Fox Network and various radio show personalities.

The question still remains. How did Van Jones get into his position as "Green Czar?" Perhaps it began with Van Jones co-founding the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in 1996. That gave him the creditials to be on the National Steering Committee of the Apollo Alliance.

A founder of the Apolllo Alliance is Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr., US Congress (D-IL). Besides being the son of the well known former candidate for U.S. President, Jackson served as a national co-chairman of the Barack Obama presidential campaign.

When Candidate Obama vacated his position as Senator, he authorized Rahlm Emanuel to pass on the names of four people he considered to be highly qualified to take over his seat — Illinois Comptroller Dan Hynes, Illinois Veterans’ Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth, Rep. Jan Schakowsky and Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.

When is Governor Blagojevich claimed emissaries offered up to a million dollars in exchange for the appointment, that likely killed the possibility of Jackson, becoming the Senator Jesse Jackson Jr.

In no way did the Obama Administration go looking for a "Green Czar" and discover Van Jones out of 307 million U.S. citizens. While we cannot assume Van Jones received his appointment as a pay-for-play issue, you have to begin to wonder whether the "Culture of Corruption," so much in the media was the motivating factor without monetary payoffs.

Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
