Glen Beck Draws First Blood in Czar War

The recent, forced resignation of "green jobs czar" Van Jones, although not solely due to the excellent reporting of Glenn Beck is great and Beck should be given the lions share of credit. It seems as Beck is on a crusade (is that word still permitted) to expose these far, far left loons who Obama and his people have brought into the highest levels of government with little or no over-sight by Congress. Obama is surrounding himself with the same types of people who he associated with during his community organizer days in Chicago. He dared not do that during his campaign, as the American electorate would not have tolerated it. Now however, he feels that since he is the supreme leader he can do as he chooses and the hell with what anyone else thinks. Obama's way or the highway seems to be the path he is following. With each passing day Obama is proving himself to be less and less a uniter and more and more a radical partisan , with little use for compromise. The battle lines are being drawn and those on the left and right are digging in for the great conflict and what could become an epic struggle for the future of our country.


Glenn Beck Draws First Blood in Czar War. While you were out this Labor Day weekend, you might have missed Sunday's resignation of Van Jones, President Obama's "green jobs czar." Plenty of commentators noticed and, two days later, they're still chattering about all the implications.

Most see it as an example of the White House caving in to pressure from conservatives or trying to eliminate distractions from the president's renewed push for health care reform. For some, it marks Glenn Beck's ascendance to a leading role in the media opposition to the Obama administration. The Fox News host portrayed Jones as a radical and a Communist in a broader campaign attacking Obama advisers known as "czars."
News that Jones had used a crude epithet to describe Republicans and signed a petition suggesting the Bush administration was in on the 9/11 attacks added to his troubles.

In this episode of Czar Wars, Arianna Huffington is casting Jones -- her friend and former employee -- as Obi-Wan Kenobi. She says striking him down just makes him more powerful -- freeing him to be a stronger force in advancing progressive causes. So Huffington thanks Beck for thrusting Jones into the spotlight, even if it was through a "vile and vicious smear campaign."
Beck has also thrust himself in the spotlight and nobody expects him to back away now. The Daily Beast and Politico are scoping out his next targets. They include regulatory adviser Cass Sunstein, FCC diversity chief Mark Lloyd and environmental adviser Carol Browner. One conservative blog added Ron Bloom's name to the list just hours after President Obama introduced him as "manufacturing czar" on Labor Day. read full story from AOL

The investigation into Van Jones started with a couple of bloggers, one in New Zealand http://www.newzeal.blogspot.com and Gateway Pundit I think, then other bloggers picked up some of the facts, then Glen Beck got on it and DOWN he went.

Now we have to get busy and get the rest of them. Might take a little more digging.

You are right Debbie, bloggers got the ball to rolling, but it takes someone like Beck to push it across the goal.

We all drew first blood on this one, Ron.

TexasFred said...

This was a TEAM effort... Beck even said so... It's bloggers like us that are the REAL grass roots of the thing, no matter what the loons of the left may say...

Matt said...

Well said by all. I think it's going to get harder. The lefties probably have bunches of people trying to find every video, website, blog, or story that covers or exposes them. Let the scrubbing begin.

Ron Russell said...

Yea, it was indeed a team effort and like the two bugs I saw in the cow pasture the other day we need to keep the ball moving and get rid of all the shi....t!

Teresa said...

Yes, Well said by all. Now, that we have one down, we must continue the good fight and expose the rest of the radical Czars. Plus, we must continue defending Beck. I am sure that he will be a target more than ever by the left. I love how the LIBS called it a smear campaign. Yep, we smeared Van Jones's words all over so that the truth could be revealed about him.

Ron Russell said...

You are right Teresa, Glenn will certainly have a big target on his back and the left will be using all the dirty tricks they can---that has always been their game and the MSM will be in their conner. We have our little blogs, FOX News, and free radio and will fight with that. More importantly however, we have right on our side. The ghost of the founders are with us and the Constitution.

Mr Pink Eyes said...

He mamnged to keep his radical side hidden during the campaign. People who tried to bring it up were called racists and were portrayed as fear mongers, but many of us knew that Obama couldn't hang around with the people he chose to hang around with and not be r radical. Now that he is in the White House he is still trying to hide his radical side by bringing in these czars almost under the cover of night and nobody can say for sure what kind of people are advising Obama. Jones was just one example, who else is there?

Ron Russell said...

You have it totally right Mr Pink Eyes. I think some in the MSM had it figured out, but said nothing because the radical position is their position. And then radicals never ever see themselves that way, they are simply correct and everyone else is wrong or stupid.
