Pro-Obama Apollo Alliance Advised By A Left-Wing Terrorist

August 27, 2009


Yesterday the TV audience of Glenn Beck heard that an ex-member of the Weather Underground terrorist group is a co-founder of the Apollo Alliance, an influential left-wing environmentalist group that helped write President Obama‘s stimulus legislation. The $60 billion in funding which the legislation provides for “green jobs,” a utopian fantasy not taken seriously by economists, was inserted at the request of the Apollo Alliance, which began as a project of Campaign for America’s Future.

The domestic terrorist turned eco-terrorist-in-a-business-suit is named Jeff Jones. Jones used to work as communications director for the Environmental Advocates of New York and promoted his son’s memoir about growing up in a radical family in a 2004 “Democracy Now” interview.

“Jeff has been involved not just in those terrorist activities with the Weather Underground,” said Phil Kerpen of Americans for Prosperity. Added Kerpen:

He was actually part of the Weather-buro modeled on the politburo which was the high leadership where he was with Bill Ayers. But Jones was on the run, hiding from the law for about a decade before he was finally caught in a dramatic raid where his 4-year-old saw him arrested in 1981. He then became an adviser to environmental groups, to labor organizations and to the New York state government where he sits on a commission for Governor [David] Paterson.

Kerpen explained that Jones is also an advisor to the Workforce Development Institute in New York, “which is advising state and local governments and universities on how to write their grants to get stimulus funds from the stimulus bill that he and his friends at Apollo wrote.”

Kerpen said radicals run the Apollo Alliance but its public face is less scary:

They’ve got the mainstream guys. Carl Pope, the president of the Sierra Club, is on the board of the Apollo Alliance. They’ve got […] Leo Gerard from the International Steelworkers Union on the board of the Apollo Alliance. John Podesta, from the [Center for American Progress] — all of the mainstream elements of the Obama administration and the liberal and progressive movement are tied in with these people.

The person associated with the Apollo Alliance to receive the most media attention lately, however, is Van Jones, President Obama’s green jobs czar. Jones used to be a member of the board of the Apollo Alliance and is a self-identified “communist.”

    We sat back and let the terrorists gain power to the point that they have infiltrated our government. One has to wonder what our Congressmen have been doing the past twenty years to protect the country from this threat.

    Then, we only have to reflect on all the episodes of infidelity associated with many of them to realize where their priorities were.

      What have the republicans been doing? Nothing. They are not directly involved like the Leftists but are complicit none the less. I am dismayed how the republican party has been infiltrated be politicians who stand for nothing. We have one chance to change the blood of congress. We will not survive if the transfusion is “watered down”.

      As with an alcoholic, they are in denial. Whether their addiction to the leftist policy is cured will determine their fate.

      I imagine your question was rhetorical. You already know the answer. 🙂

      Your definition of Truth is different from the definition of the Left. To the Left the Truth is the radically-remade, utopian fantasy world of their imaginations that they’re busy trying to build.

        Yes, but it is put forth for those that quiver.

    These groups are just “redistributing” Americas wealth, into their own pockets. Those who can’t work or can’t be elected will ultimately create ways to take others money, of course for the greater good of the oppressed and downtrodden.
    Truth is they can’t compete in the evil capitalistic world so they resort to Communism, and place themselves in the “elite seat”.
    Well, we all know that Solcialism/communism eventually fail due to the old Margaret Thatcher proverb; Socialism is just taking money from one and giving to another, eventually you run out of the other persons money.

    Obama is going to address the public school students of the nation on September 8. Teachers have been sent “suggestions” as to how to use what he says in their class assignments.
    Coincidentally (?), lawyer Orly Taitz will be heard before the Supreme Court as to questions regarding the natural born citizen status of Obama – on September 8.
    Obama is trying to distract attention away from the hearing, but let us pay full attention.
