UPDATE: Glenn Beck’s Refound America Campaign, “New Republic: America’s Future” Details

On Glenn’s show today he went back over the fine details of the “Refound America” project, which will ulimately result in quarantining and eliminating corruption in politics.  Here are the details:

Notable Quotes

  • “All we need is 56 men and women who are willing to put country over self, put the republica over their party, free our government from rabid corruption and the special interests and to protect the republic,” said Beck
  • “If you’re part of corruption, I’m hear to tell you, you’re going to have to pay a penatly.
  • “If you just help save the republic from the disease that is corruption, these people [American] will get behind you.”

For those in Washington (Congressmen and women):

This the really cool part.  The lucky 56 men and women in Congress that get to help “refound america” will get to be taken into the upper floors of the Fox News office in Downtown Manhattan.  He or she will then be ushered into a room lined with bookshelves and then given the opportunity to share their story.  For congressmen and women that do not wish to be known, they can fully disguise their face and voice so it’s like a cool undercover interview.  Definitely awesome.

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.

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!

FOX News New Line-up

Glenn Becks incredible new show.

Glenn Beck's incredible new show.

For the start of the new year, FOX News Channel introduced some changes that have shifted the dynamic of the show.  Most notibly was the departure of Colmes (a welcome one for me), but also the introduction of a new commentator, Glenn Beck.  First off, let’s discuss the Colmes departure.  In all honesty, I did not like Colmes at all on the show.  I think it might have been that Hannity is so conservative that it made Colmes appear as if he was the ultimate embodiement of a liberal.  Quite frankly, he came across as a loon.  However, off the show, he seemed like a nice guy.  So as far as ‘Hannity and Colmes’ goes, I’m glad he’s gone.  But I hope he gets a show somewhere, just because I don’t think he’s all bad.  He would be a WELCOME replacement for Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, but that’s another story for another day.  The second major change would be the addition of The Glenn Beck Program at 5 PM (Eastern).  Before this show I’d never listened to Beck much, but after the first two shows I’m hooked.  He is a really funny guy, and he’s a lot more fair than Hannity, in that he doesn’t automatically associated liberals with the devil.  The first episode of the show was great.  He had a heartfelt moment talking about his child with a disability, interviewed Sarah Palin, and was the first to talk with the wives of commuted border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jorge Compean.  I’d say it was a pretty action packed first episode.  I encourage everyone to watch The Glenn Beck Prorgram, I have a feeling it’s going to my favorite show of it’s kind on any network.

Thanks for reading and hope you check back in often!
