Jackals in the henhouse, firebugs in the barn

Back in the good old days, a self-proclaimed Communist and enthusiastic “Truther” like Van Jones would have been anathema to our political and media elites. Today, however, under the Obama regime, he is the darling of the liberal left, a fixture on political television shows, and a one-time “Green Jobs Czar” in that same Obama administration.
Lest anyone be fooled into thinking that the soft-spoken, Brooks Brothers image that he projects today is the real Van Jones, they should hearken to his own words: “I am willing to forego the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.”
In another notable quote, on Oct. 22, 2014, Jones told host Don Lemon on CNN’s “360” that, “Sarah Palin, people forget, she had the Democratic Party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out. She gave that speech at the convention. That was hands down, one of the best convention speeches, not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills.”
Of course, because they absolutely cannot tolerate a conservative woman – any more than they can tolerate a conservative black – the leftist media elite went into an attack mode that turned the usual “politics of personal destruction” to a level of slander, libel, and ridicule never before seen in American political life; comments by the likes of left-wing comedians David Letterman and Bill Maher rising to a level of depravity that would, as they say, gag a maggot.
One of the most pernicious of the false charges made against Sarah Palin was that she was not only ignorant but given to wildly inaccurate pronouncements. Subsequent analysis reveals that her pronouncements were much more often correct than not. A perfect example would be her 2008 contention that Barack Obama was “someone who sees America as so imperfect that he is palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”
Much has been made of Obama’s close relationships with Marxists like his parents, Frank Marshall Davis, and Jeremiah Wright – not to mention actual murderous Communist terrorists like Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers – but what about the people he has brought into his administration? Any terrorists?


We have already cited Van Jones, an open Communist who has belonged to a laundry list of unsavory, Marxist organizations, some of which have advocated or at least praised acts of terrorism.


Much more recently, Obama has moved the “Reverend” Al Sharpton to the front and center of his administration as point-man on race relations. Sharpton is a tax cheat ($4.5 million), a deadbeat ($65,000), an extortionist, a rabble-rousing racist, and an anti-Semite.
Given his aggressive support for the levelling of false rape charges against six innocent white men in the Tawana Brawley case, he is also a lying character assassin. (Note that, when Sharpton refused to pay a $65,000 judgement in the defamation lawsuit resulting from the Brawley case, the issue became moot when rich supporters picked up the tab.)
While such shenanigans hardly amount to terrorism, other escapades do.
For instance, in 1991, in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights, a Jewish man accidentally killed a black child in a traffic collision. Local blacks rioted, resulting in the fatal stabbing of rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum. Meanwhile, Al Sharpton made one incendiary speech after another, whipping up sufficient anti-Semitic violence for one wag to refer to the result as “America’s kristallnacht.” Some rioters chanted, “death to Jews,” while others attacked Jewish homes, which they identified by the mezuzahs on the door. Sharpton called Jews “diamond merchants” at Gavin Cato’s funeral, while others held up a banner which proclaimed, “Hitler did not do the job.”
Then, in 1995, Sharpton turned a simple landlord-tenant dispute into an anti-Semitic massacre that Goebbels and Himmler would have been proud of: “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.” Or, “We are not going to stand idly by and let a Jewish person come in black Harlem and methodically drive black people out of business up and down 125th St.”

It seems that, while Sharpton was leading protest marches demanding that Jews be driven from the neighborhood, Roland James Smith Jr., one of his followers, walked into Jewish-owned Freddy’s Fashion Mart (a business at the heart of the tenant dispute) with a loaded pistol.
He then ordered all the blacks – except the black security guard, who had been called a “cracker lover” and “traitor” – out of the store, poured paint thinner on bins of clothing, and lit the make-shift firebombs, burning up himself and seven innocent human beings.
And the difference between Al Sharpton and Charles Manson is what exactly? Oh, Al Sharpton has black privilege? Well, never mind then.
For Obama to appoint this race-hustling poverty pimp as his point-man on race relations cannot be condemned too harshly. The fruit of this poisoned tree did not take long to burgeon. For instance, one of Sharpton’s “Million Marchers” mobs chanted, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!”

Almost immediately, two New York cops were ambushed and executed in direct response to this disgraceful rhetoric.
Charles Manson rots in jail, while Al Sharpton dines in the White House and rides around in limousines.


That leads to Attorney General Eric Holder, who, as a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, joined a black separatist group called the “Student Afro-American Society” (SAAS). One of their first actions was a five-day armed occupation of a closed ROTC, demanding that it be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” (Later, Barack Obama used this same “lounge” as a hang-out spot, so apparently the brandishing of guns, the threats, and the intimidation were well worth it.) They also took over the office of the Dean of Freshmen, which they occupied until their demands were met.
Should anyone be confused regarding SAAS’s attitude toward the actual spilling of blood, “in March 1970, the group released a statement supporting twenty one Black Panthers charged with plotting to blow up department stores, railroad tracks, a police station, and the New York Botanical Gardens.” (Red State)
Naturally, with an undergraduate record like that, Democrats couldn’t wait to appoint Holder to the most powerful positions in government agencies and private law firms. It is worth noting that, in virtually every case, he used his newfound powers to release the most violent, bloodthirsty terrorists that American law enforcement agencies had managed to identify and incarcerate.
For instance, when Bill Clinton appointed him Assistant Attorney General in 1997, he became the “gatekeeper of presidential pardons.” Holder was a key figure entrusted with the task of vetting the Clinton Administration’s 176 last-minute pardons in 2001. The beneficiaries of those pardons included such notables as former Weather Underground members Susan Rosenberg (who was involved in the deadly 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored car) and Linda Evans (who used false identification to buy firearms, had harbored a fugitive, and was in possession of 740 pounds of dynamite at the time of her arrest in 1985.)” {DISCOVERTHE- NETWORKS.ORG}
“Holder was also intimately involved in President Clinton’s August 11, 1999 pardon of 16 members of the Puerto Rican FALN acronym for the Armed forces of National Liberation … This violent, Marxist-Leninist, terrorist organization was active in the U.S. from the mid 1970s through the early 1980s.”{ibid} Their goal was political independence for Puerto Rico. In furtherance of that objective, they set off 130 bombs between 1974 and 1983, killing six people and wounding more than 80.
More than a dozen of these murderers (together with several members of Los Macheteros, another band of Puerto Rican terrorists) were sentenced to 35 to 105 years. They refused to participate in any clemency efforts, which would have ended the matter had the Justice Department not waved its usual contrition requirement.

Moreover, despite the form-letter clemency requests produced on their behalf, they refused to renounce violence. Meanwhile, victims’ relatives were never even notified of the impending hearings.
Sentencing judges, U.S. attorneys, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the Fraternal Order of Police, and the FBI all filed objections, but to no avail. Sixteen of these monsters were granted clemency (although four actually refused to accept it). The House of Representatives voted 311 to 41 against clemency, while the Senate followed suit with a vote of 95 to 2 against. Even Attorney General Janet Reno declared that their release “would ‘increase the threat’ of terrorism.”
Are we beginning to discern a pattern here?
As a result of the furor over Holder’s shepherding of Marc Rich’s pardon application through to Bill Clinton’s desk, Holder withdrew from public life and joined the Washington, D.C. law firm of Covington and Burling. Among other questionable clients that this firm defended were no less than 17 Yemeni “enemy combatants” residing at Guantanamo Bay.
Radical attorneys working for Holder put in 3,000 hours of work on their cases – pro bono. As a result, at least one of these homicidal fanatics returned to the battlefield soon after his release. He subsequently blew himself up in a 2008 truck bombing that killed 13 Iraqi soldiers and seriously wounded 42 others.
Of course the average president-elect would have assiduously avoided a degenerate like Holder, but he fit Barack Obama like a well-used jockstrap. Consequently, Obama appointed this worm to the office of Attorney General of the United States of America.
Having endorsed and supported the Black Panthers’ political violence when he was an undergraduate at Columbia, Holder, as incoming AG, endorsed and supported political violence perpetrated by the New Black Panthers. It seems that, during the 2008 election that inflicted Obama on America, two New Black Panther Party members dressed up in black uniforms, armed themselves with nightsticks, and “intimidated white voters with racial slurs and threats of violence at a Philadelphia polling place.”
Unfortunately for these two militant morons, their fascistic tactics were not only photographed, but witnessed by Bartle Bull, a former civil rights attorney and campaign aide to the late Bobby Kennedy. The Panthers didn’t even bother to answer the charges filed by the Bush Administration, so a federal judge entered a default judgement against them.
That should have been the end of the matter, but the incoming Holder Justice Department snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by dropping all charges. As a result, “in June of 2010, J. Christian Adams, a five year Department of Justice (DOJ) veteran, resigned to protest the ‘corrupt nature’ of the DOJ’s dismissal of the case … Adams gave damning public testimony about how the DOJ believed that ‘civil rights law should not be enforced in a race neutral manner, and should never be enforced against blacks or other national minorities.” (DISCOVER- THENETWORKS.ORG)
“Christopher Coates – Voting Section Chief for the DOJ – testified to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and corroborated Adams’ contentions.” (ibid) This is an official endorsement of terrorism on the part of Holder’s DOJ, plain and simple.
While the injustices perpetrated by Holder’s Justice Department are legion, the present examination needs be limited to those that touch upon terrorism, and that takes us to the Fast and Furious scandal. Many have speculated on what could possibly have motivated Holder to allow more than 2,000 guns to be shipped to Mexican drug cartels in 2011. He claims that he wanted to track them and build cases against the recipients. Did he fail to make any arrangements to track them because he had made some secret deal with the narcotraficantes, or was he just too stupid to implement his own scheme?
(This is always the over-riding question when analyzing the antics of the Obama Administration. How much do we attribute to corruption, how much to treason, and how much to simple verticranial rectumitus?)
As usual, the cover-up is as bad as the crime. Remember that the Justice Department originally responded to congressional requests for information by supplying a document that even they later admitted was full of falsehoods. Rather than correct that abominable record, Holder flatly refused to to comply with subpoenas and was apparently unfazed when confronted with a contempt of Congress conviction. No other sitting cabinet member in American history has been so disgraced, but “Eric the Red” has nothing but contempt for Congress, just as he has contempt for American law enforcement officers like Brian Terry, the Border Patrol agent who was murdered by a Fast and Furious rifle.
Would anyone but a terrorist endorse and enforce Obama’s efforts to close Gitmo and release virtually every murdering terrorist that we have managed to capture? This is called “accessory after the fact.”


That takes us to Secretary of State John Kerry. Having parlayed three minor scratches into three Purple Hearts, which qualified him for a hardship transfer out of Vietnam, Kerry took it upon himself to co-found an anti-war group called Vietnam Veterans Against the War. He had already falsely testifies before Congress about trumped-up atrocities supposedly committed by American soldiers overseas. Now, he and Jane Fonda put together a phony “Winter Soldier” propaganda orgy in which misfits who had never been anywhere near Vietnam confessed to crimes against humanity that never took place.
A perfect example was John Kerry’s second in command at the VVAW, Al Hubbard. Hubbard was a Black Panther and former Air Force sergeant who claimed to have been a captain and to have been wounded flying missions over Vietnam. In point of fact, Hubbard was a complete fraud. He had never been to Vietnam, and he had never been wounded. Check out the videos of those long-ago anti-war demonstrations, and you may notice a faction waving Vietcong Communist flags. That would be the VVAW. Far from being for peace, they were a Maoist revolutionary cadre dedicated to bringing the war home to America.
That takes us to a Kansas City VVAW steering committee meeting of Nov. 12-15, 1971, at which they voted on whether to kill pro-war American politicians or kidnap them and use them to extract concessions from the government.
Naturally, John Kerry lied about his participation in these diabolic deliberations, but author Gerald Nicosia located several witnesses who saw him there and unearthed FBI archives that ended all doubt.
Somewhat sympathetic toward Kerry and his activities, and being a man of integrity, Nicosia notified Kerry’s camp of the impending release of his discoveries in his upcoming book, “Home to War.” He even supplied a Kerry campaign messenger with copies.

“And then on March 25 approximately 4,000 of the FBI documents –
perhaps hundreds of them on Kerry himself, in folders that I had
already bookmarked – were stolen from my home; a burglary that
remains unsolved, but about which I have my own suspicions, and
which I definitely believe to have been politically motivated.”
(“Home to War”)

So, you tell me. Has Barack Hussein Obama packed his administration with terrorists,
or is that a vicious, racist rumor?
