Thoughts From Around the Blogosphere: Reaction to Van Jones’s Resignation and Controversy

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but there so much fun so I’m about to start again.  For those that don’t know how this works, I google blogsearch “Van Jones” and take a random sampling of the results and clip out important bits, as well as throw in some of my favorite bloggers’ thoughts.  Here’s the blogosphere’s reaction to the resignation of former green jobs advisor, Van Jones:

DPGI- the aftermath

Just put Bush’s name in any of these stories – war, spending, personal associations, agenda, czars, “dictatorship” – and then, recall the panty-twisting furor of the Left from the past eight years. Kind of telling to see the sand in their crotch was Bush, not what Bush did because Obama is following Bush’s path in many ways.

Quipster

The special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality apparently believes that his past actions are being used as “lies and distortions,” and are not worthy of scrutiny for the special government position he enjoyed.

Citizens Against Pro-Obama Media Bias

They ranted on and on about the “birthers” and compared them to the “truthers” and lo and behold one of barry’s special advisors is a truther…to begin with.

The Transporter

Van Jones resigns as President Obamas green jobs czar. All I can think of to say is not soon enough, not soon enough. The president should check into the backgrounds of some people before he hires them to save the embarrassment.

Newsreal (I strongly recommend reading this article, it’s one of my favorites regarding Jones)

The point is not that President Obama will not tolerate people with Van Jones’ views to serve in his administration: he obviously will, because he did and he defended Jones to the bitter end. The point is Jones is becoming part of Obama’s increasingly familiar pattern: associate with radical leftists, give them as much power and prominence as possible in their own right, and disavow them only if they begin to hurt your ability to radicalize the system from within.

The Political Inquirer

One down a whole administration yet to go.

Citizen Obie

Van Jones made a mistake. Van Jones did and said some things I think he probably regrets. In fact, I know he does, because he said so. But where I see a mistake, Glenn Beck and the rightist bloggers who carried out this campaign saw an opportunity to tar and feather (and yes, that image is deliberate) the very symbol of the green jobs movement, and to characterize that movement, and by extension the presidency, as a communist cabal intent on imposing a reverse-racist tyranny on good Christian straight White Americans.

Betsy’s Page

How viciously sneaky of the right wing. They dared to use the man’s own words against him.

All American Blogger

I’m not saying I had anything to do with this, but I did write one heck of a blogosphere roundup on the matter.

California Conservative

Conservatives often joke that the Left’s definition of a dirty campaign is using their words against them. That seems to fit with Van Jones’ resignation letter.

The Lonely Conservative

Despite the fact that the MSM completely ignored the news of Van Jones’s past, the radical commie Green Jobs Czar has quit. And of course he’s blaming it on the folks who had the nerve to dig up his past. Not that it was hard.

Glenn Beck

The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.

Van Jones Resigns: A Display of the Power of Fox News

Wow, I think I truly am shocked about this.

I haven’t been following the Van Jones saga much lately because I’d seen what I needed to see:  the guy is crazy and he is (was) an advisor to the president.  If I’m being perfectly honest, I assumed that he was here to stay so I just tried to block out all of the controversies surrounding him during my daily dose of Glenn Beck so I wasn’t freaked out even further.

So when I got home from church today, I was surprised to find on the AOL home page that Van Jones had resigned as green jobs advisor amid all the controversy.  But again, rather than owning up to his past statements and claims, Jones simply said he needed to leave due to the “vicious smear campaign” against him.  Van.. Buddy.. It’s not a smear campaign when it’s true.  Admit responsibility for your actions and leave with a little bit of dignity.  Without a doubt Jones knew that he was fast becoming baggage for the administration and that he probably wouldn’t be able to make many green jobs when the vast majority of America is against him.  In fact, AOL’s poll (I know it’s not scientific, but they’re usually pretty close) has 91%  giving Jones resignation a “Thumbs Up” and only 9% a “Thumbs Down”.

Glenn Beck, pat yourself on the back for this one

The whole debacle would have never gotten anywhere without all the coverage Glenn Beck has devoted to Van Jones over the past few days.  He’s constantly been pounding viewers with video clips and quotes from Van Jones that serve as an illustration of his lunacity.  The message obviously resonated with viewers; “Van Jones” was a trending topic on Twitter at the start of the weekend and the blogosphere has been ripe with “Get Rid of Jones!” posts.  Once the rest of the right-media (Basically Fox News) caught on to the situation, Sean Hannity picked it up and then it was all over.  When you’ve got the second biggest radio personality and quite possibly the most controversial cable news host broadcasting concrete evidence of insanity, somethings got to change.  And that my friends, is change we can believe in.

Carrie Prejean to Guest Host ‘Fox and Friends’

As her Miss USA gay marriage debacle finally seems to be winding down, Miss California Carrie Prejean has been offered and has accepted a spot to guest host ‘Fox and Friends’ on May 27th for the 6 AM to 7 AM time slot.  She’s subbing for 1989 Miss America, Gretchen Carlson.

I think this is certainly a great oppurtunity for Ms. Prejean.  She certainly has the talent to do a great job.  I have to say, I’m guilty of accepting the air-headed stereotype of beauty pageant girls; however, Carrie is not at all that, but very intelligent and she will do a great job on ‘Fox and Friends’.  I sucked it up and watched Hannity (He’s the only FOX News anchor I can’t handle, besides Geraldo of course.  But no one likes him.) the other day to see his interview with her and she did a great job.  She seems like a really intelligent young lady, and I’m glad this oppurtunity presented itself.  Hopefully this will lead to more for Ms. Prejean!

What do you think of Carrie’s guest spot?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

Video of the Day: Shep, Calm Down!

Come on Shep, let’s be reasonable.  There is no reason to be dropping the f-bomb, even if you do feel passionately about America not torturing anyone.  The clip is quite interesting, and, though I’ve only watched his show a few times, I never would have expected this from him.  Watch the clip below let us all know what you think!

EDIT: This occured on The Strategy Room, which is Fox News’ new show that can be streamed from their website.  So this didn’t occur on his show or other tv broadcast.  Thanks punditpawn for clearing that up.

Thanks for visiting!

Video of the Day: I’m Breaking The Rules, I Know

I know it’s “No Politics Tuesday” and all, but I just have to post this.  I’m sure at this point everyone has seen, it but for those that are a bit slow, here is the clip of David Buckner passing out on The Glenn Beck Program yesterday.  I have to say that watching that happen live was a quite a shock.

And yes everyone, Professor Buckner is okay, that’s only reason why it’s ok to post this.

Thanks for watching!

The Chosen One Will Triumph In 2012 Against Sarah Palin

Could 2012 be the year of Paul?

Could 2012 be the year of Paul?

Or at least, that’s what the latest poll says.  How those things can predict 4 years in the future is beyond me.  But anyway, the poll shows that Barack Obama would trounce Sarah Palin in 2012 with 55% of the popular vote compared to Palin’s 35%, results that compare to Nixon’s 1972 blowout against George McGovern.  I guess the remaining 10% go to a third party candidate; could 2012 be the start of a 3 party system??  Seriously though, if I thought there was any accuracy in these numbers I’d be very concerned considering Palin is a very popular figure among Republicans.  Plus, the notion that a moderate dude like John McCain could pull in so many more votes than a true conservative is rather alarming.  However, rest easy fellow conservatives and those not aboard the Obama Train; I don’t think 2012 will look anything like this.

First of all,  that’s a long way off.  Golden Boy has just started his reign and many people are still being fed the Kool-Aid through a funnel.  Though I can’t predict the future, the way things are going I don’t see his first term ending on a high note.  I could be wrong, but we’re predicting the future here; there’s room for error.  Anyway, say that his term doesn’t go well, naturally Palin would have a much better shot.  However, if the term is a flop, I believe we will see a completely different crop of candidates come primary time.  This will make it harder for everyone, and she could end up without the nomination.  Someone like Romney could easily step in and take the spot; he did win in the CPAC poll.  This won’t necessarily end her presidential prospects, though.  She’s young and could easily try again in the future.

But then there’s the other scenario:  The term is a success.  If his first term goes well and most of his promises are fulfilled, he will be re-elected with no problem.  In this case, I think that we will see several little-known conservatives make their debut on the national scene.  In the event Obama does well, 2012 could be a big year for, say, Ron Paul to go for the nomination.  Do I think he has any chance of winning?  Negative.  Do I think he has any chance of securing the nomination in 2012?  If Obama does well, absolutely.  Of course this is all dependent on whether or not he chooses to seriously go for it.  I know the prospect of Ron Paul being the nominee in 2012 may sound a bit out there to some, but I’m being serious.  No serious candidate is going to contest Barack Obama after a successful first term.  That would be a waste of his or her resources.

So what do you think about the poll?  Will it’s results prove to be accurate in 2012?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!  Also, you can vote in today’s “Poll of the Day” on this matter by clicking here.

Poll of the Day Results

Although the results are in, the polls aren’t closed; you can click on the title of the poll and cast your late ballot!

March 14th- Are You Liberal or Conservative?

  • This could be the most obvious poll that will ever be on the site, but here are the results:  77% of readers of The Conservative Journal are more conservative, while 23% identify more with liberal viewpoints.  To those 23% in the minority:  I’m glad you here!  Rally some more of liberal friends so we get some comment debates going!  Seriously though, thank you to all that voted and read The Conservative Journal!

March 15th- Whose Side of the Fued Are You On?

  • This results of this poll are a lot closer than I expected:  When asked whose side Conservative Journal readers were (Either Jim Cramer or Jon Stewart) on in their little feud, 53% sided with Jon Stewart, and 39% sided with Jim Cramer; with the remaining  8% having no opinion.  I voted for Jim Cramer because I think his show is funnier, but I wasn’t expecting many to vote for him.  Guess everyone agrees?

March 16th- Internet problems prevented a poll on this day.

March 17th- What Do You Think About Laura Ingraham’s Comments?

  • In this poll, 63% thought that Laura Ingraham crossed the line with her “plus-sized model” comment to Meghan McCain, 23% think America needs to lighten up, and the remaining 14% don’t care about either one of them enough to form an opinion.  Once again, on this one I went with Laura Ingraham crossing the line initially, though after hearing the full context of the comments I don’t think they were that bad.

March 18th- What Are Your Views on Abortion?

  • On this random issue, the vote was almost split exactly as the “Liberal or Conservative?” poll, with 74% siding with the more conservative “Pro-life” option, and the remaining 26% going with the generally liberal choice of “Pro-choice”.  Of course, I went “Pro-life” on this one.

March 19th- Do You Support Gay Marriage?

  • Looks like our readers are a little more moderate on this one:  61% voted against gay marriage, with the remaining 39% voting in favor of gay marriage.  Of course, I voted against.

March 20th- What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

  • We posted this before news of his apology, and 74% of those polled said that B.O. needed to apologize for his remarks, with the remaining 26% thinking that America needs to lighten up and laugh.  While I did vote that B.O. needed to apologize (glad he did do that), I generally side with America needing to lighten up.  For someone that campaigned on a platform of hope, change, and equality this was a low blow.

Mail Bag: Barack’s Special Olympics Gaffe

Barack Obama’s Special Olympics gaffe not only sparked outrage around the country, but it sparked many comments and e-mails worthy of this “Mail Bag” special.  I just want to take this time to thank everyone that commented and e-mailed, whether featured on this page or not.  Let’s start with those that agreed with me:

Jax put the comments in perspective for us on the “Barack Obama Reads This Blog” post:

He has hurt many families in America. He needs to say he is sorry in the public, not to an organization.

In addition, someone who claims to have experienced prejudice and stereotypes throughout life, and has written about them in great detail, should be more sensitive and refined from life’s lessons.

Furthermore, Obama claimed he was going to have the world think ‘highly’ of America again. Will this joke help?

For someone who spoke of equality as a creed. Does this joke match that philosophy?

For someone that said he would stand for all people. Does this stand up for those that participate in the special Olympics?

The fact is Obama claimed a higher standard. To much is given, much is required.

Obama has just showed us that ‘yes we can’ destroy what a campaign stands for with a single joke.

During the campaign for the White House in 2008, the media criticized Palin for being ‘common,’ ‘not-polished,’ ‘not-compassionate’ and ‘not presidential.’ However, compare Sarah Palins attitude in this video created three weeks ago for the Special Olympics in Boise, Idaho.

You decide the more ‘presidential’ among them. Watch: http://tinyurl.com/ccz6nj

Reaganite Republican, who writes a great conservative blog, left this comment on the same article:

Obama has something seriously wrong with him- what kind of monster mocks the disabled on network television?

I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised by this gauche and downright cruel comment re. the Special Olympics- no different than his classless cheap-shot on 90-yr-old Nancy Reagan in his first presser- apparently his preferred targets are old ladies and the handicapped… what a creep.

Narcissists like Obama are often callous- and even ruthless. They tend to lack empathy and/or a conscience. This is evident in his lack of interest in his own half-brother who lives in poverty in Kenya, or his aunt found living in public housing in Boston.

Other indicators include control freakery, grandiose self-importance, feeling “above the law”, interpersonally exploitive, inability to handle criticism, lack of empathy, arrogant behavior, surrounds himself with sycophants… sound familiar?

Obama is a mess- and his insecurities, bad childhood, and irresponsible, far-left-wierdo mother are now all OUR problem, too-

Of course, with great postivive comments, there had to be some negative:

kimi33 sent in this e-mail regarding the special olympics comments:

You conservatives just have to have something to criticize, don’t you?  Those who have never made an off-color comment can cast the first stone.  It was just a slip that doesn’t deserve all this unwarranted coverage from “Faux Noise”.  Conservatives keep saying Obama should have been fixing the economy instead of be on Jay Leno, so instead of coverring Jay Leno the conservative media should cover the economy.

Love from the left,

kimi

And to you, kimi:  What about when Bush made an off-color remark?  Did you jump on the MSDNC (See, I got funny nicknames too) bandwagon and talk about it for days?  Heck, in the days after Bush did something comparable to this the Clintons could have bombed Canada and would receive no coverage from MSDNC and the majority of media outlets.  The fact is, they can treat it like a non-story all they want, but it doesn’t erase the fact that Barack is a insensitive windbag hypocrit.  Have a great day!

So that wraps up the latest Mail Bag segment for now.  Once again, thanks to all that commented, and if your comment wasn’t featured send in another one on another article!

What was your favorite comment?  Do you think kimi had the same attitude towards John McCain when he couldn’t remember how many houses he had?  Leave your comments below and you may end up in the next Mail Bag!

Thanks for reading!

Come On, Barack! Well, at Least He’s a Liberal.

I suck like the Special Olympics, says Obama.

"I suck like the Special Olympics", says Obama.

Barack, Barack, Barack. What were you thinking? You can’t talk about how bad you were bowling and compare it to the Special Olympics; especially when you’re the president! I mean, I’m sure I’ve said worse, but you are the PRESIDENT. Geez. For those that missed this little debacle, while Barack was being a cool cat on Jay Leno (DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT EVER TO GO ON A LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW???), Jay brought up his lack of bowling skill. Barack said it was getting a little better but still sucked, and then compared his horribleness to the Special Olympics. I’m sure there were many expletives swirling about in his brain after that little slip, but he should rest easy because he’ll be fine. Why, you ask? Because he’s a liberal, of course! The only people that are going to ever know about this are the viewers of FOX News, listeners of talk radio, the people watching Leno, and people that read conservative blogs online. That’s probably, at the most, 15 million people that will have any idea he said that. Being a liberal nearly makes you impervious to media scrutiny, so he’s got no need to worry.  Oh and don’t forget the White House released that memo that said he didn’t mean to degrade the Special Olympics.  Oh ok, no problem then!  Come on, that’s like calling your mom a stupid fat cow, but then saying you didn’t mean it in a mean way.  How dumb does the White House think we are?  (Oh wait, we did elect the guy. :)).  So rather than hiding behind a White House Press Release, I demand that you, Barack Obama, apologize to America for belittling the Special Olympics.  We’re waiting.

*Disclaimer*

Now I know that on numerous I’ve said America needs to toughen up and not get so offended about stuff, but I think this was over the line.  Making rude comments about physical disabilities is not in the realm of okayness.  And for those that like to e-mail me and say I’m just biased, I spoke out against Laura Ingraham’s comments on Meghan McCain’s weight earier this week.  No, I didn’t say as much about them, but those comments were not anywhere near as offensive.

Just imagine the outrage if Rush or Hannity or Coulter had said that! We’d never hear the end of it.  What do you think of Obama’s comments?  Were they completely ridiculous or do you think it was all in good humor?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Laura Ingraham Sets the Record Straight

Laurah Ingraham cleared the air on The OReilly Factor.

Laurah Ingraham cleared the air on The O'Reilly Factor.

At the start of the live O’Reilly Factor broadcast tonight, Laura Ingraham took advantage of her guest hosting spot by setting the record straight regarding her weight comments toward Meghan McCain.  The subject of tonight’s Talking Points Memo was the word-twisting nonsense going on on the left.  In the memo, Laura took advantage of her spot by saying that she DID NOT call Meghan McCain fat.  The entire clip was played in the background and, given the full context of the comments, they didn’t sound quite as harsh.  She went on to say that she has constantly said Meghan McCain is a lovely girl and is no way fat, and that it was just another example of the left twisting conservative’s words to push their agenda.  I must say, I admire Ingraham for bringing it up on such a large platform, but I still don’t know if I’m convinced the comments weren’t slightly weight-based.  Actually, without the weight context, saying that about the “plus-sized model” really makes no sense at all.  But Laura generally means what she says and cuts the crap, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.   It was a great little segment; for those who missed it don’t forget to tune in to the next broadcast of The Factor at 10 Pm Eastern.

What do you think  of Laura’s bringing the comments up?  Do you believe she wasn’t making a weight referrence?  Leave your comments below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com.

What’s Everyone’s Beef With Meghan McCain?

So shes not a zero, she looks fine!

So she's not a zero, she looks fine!

Meghan McCain has hit a spot of rough luck as of late.  It all began with her comments about Ann Coulter, which angered many conesrvatives, in which she stated that she described using several negative adjectives.  And while I wasn’t angry at Meghan over this incident, I didn’t think it was a very smart thing to do.  It’s not really good PR for someone that is just now trying to make a name for herself in the political world to diss someone that is an established member of the conservative media.  Anyway, apparently those comments upset a lot of people more than they should have, including well established conservative pundit Laura Ingraham.  I’m a big Laura fan, but this was a bit extreme.  On her radio show she made fun of McCain, labeling her a “valley girl”, among other things.  Those comments, in my opinion, are completely within reason and I see no problem in them.  HOWEVER, Ingraham went on to criticize McCain for her weight, saying she wouldn’t get a spot on MTV’s The Real World because they don’t like plus size models.  (Huh?  Is this really Laura Ingraham?)  Let me just say that I’m not a guy that gets offended or gets hurt feelings very easily, and I have a high tolerance for most things.  I take everything in a light-hearted manner and just laugh at everything.  This, however, is a bit ridiculous.  So Meghan isn’t the skinniest girl in world, she sure isn’t the biggest.  She’s a lovely girl who happens to not be a zero; yes, that is possible.  Now I’m all about criticism, and I think Meghan deserves her fair share over the Ann Coulter debacle (Whether you like Ann or not, you’ve  got to admit Meghan was a bit out of line), but not criticism about a 25 year old girl’s weight.  So shame on you Laura, I expected better from you!

What do you think about Laura Ingraham’s comments?  Was she completely out of line or within reason?  Write a comment below or send us an e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com and let your opinion be heard!  If your comments are good they may be featured on the home page.
