Former Obama administration green czar Van Jones took to Twitter on Monday to tout his arrest for a courthouse protest against Big Coal — the arrest he asked police to make.
One of President Obama's own campers — former White House green-jobs czar Van Jones — has come out in opposition to portions of the president's budget, presented to Congress on Wednesday.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster against John Brennan's appointment to the CIA has gained national applause, and criticism, but one person who is standing with the senator on the president's drone program is a very unlikely ally — Van Jones.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has stirred up some controversy in his new biography that includes critiques against Newt Gingrich, Joe Biden and President Barack Obama. The biography, by Zev Chafets, quotes Mr. Ailes as saying that President Obama “never earned a penny that wasn’t public money.”
CNN's Carol Costello asked her panel a question Wednesday morning that might have a few people scratching their heads. The "CNN Newsroom" host asked nonprofits founder Van Jones, Politic365's Jason Johnson and The New York Times' Ross Douthat if the Christopher Dorner case teaches us anything about guns.
President Obama has his second term and will never face voters again. On one of his highest priorities -- energy and the environment -- he's free to be the "transformational" figure he always wanted to be.
A new poll by the Hill found that 52 percent of respondents think President Obama does not deserve a second term, while 40 percent think he does. With economic growth stalled, unemployment climbing and record numbers of Americans on food stamps, the question is not why the re-elect number is so low but why Mr. Obama's support is so high.
While Vice President Joseph R. Biden's "back in chains" remark in front of a largely black audience on Aug. 14 definitely can be considered race-baiting, based on the Obama administration's reaction, it was more an off-the-cuff embarrassment than part of a calculated effort to rile black Americans and engender fear.
Have you heard of SWATing? Someone calls 911 falsely claiming that a person has killed someone or is about to do so. It can bring down a world of hurt, complete with sirens and a SWAT team with drawn guns.
Throughout history, political extremists have attacked their opponents, seeking to silence and suppress those with whom they disagree. Some form of bullying is almost always their chief weapon. These extremists invariably try to undermine democracy itself and silence their opposition.
Are you listening, Van Jones? Precious few moments in America's story have offered an opportunity like the one we have before us to realign politics and bend the long arc of history toward liberty. Occupy Wall Street activists decry the bank bailouts just as Tea Partyers have since 2009. Fine. If the occupiers really mean it, they should join the fight to finally end not just bailouts to banks, but all forms of corporate welfare.
Forget the President Obama mask. The most "sought after" adult Halloween costume of 2011 are Angry Birds.
Former "green jobs czar" Van Jones hopes to ally the progressive cause with the middle class, using a page or two from the tea party playbook, perhaps.
Why is an affiliate of the disgraced group ACORN lobbying the White House?
Almost 100 "individuals" have filed a "Statement of Candidacy" with the Federal Election Commission as 2012 presidential hopefuls.
"I worked for this president," Mr. Jones said in the report. "I voted for this president. But even the most beloved presidents make mistakes and missteps. This one would be a doozy."
Cutting back on planned increases to the Social Security budget is a "doozy" of a mistake, Mr. Jones said, as reported in The Washington Examiner.
