At midnight Saturday, Van Jones stepped down as the Green Jobs Czar as pressure mounted on the administration to address an endless stream of quotes and videos surfaced showing how radical Mr. Jones and his associations have been. The Progressives and Jones will call this a smear campaign but the comments and videos speak for themselves. They show a man committed to his ideals. Unfortunately for Jones these ideals are not what America wants or believes. Rather than calling this a smear campaign, to use the words of the president himself; maybe this was a teachable moment. The lesson – the citizens can also be committed to their principles and will push back when our public servants are not listening.

This should also serve as a reminder to all citizens that is our right to be heard. Keep speaking out against the things that you don’t like – it is your right as an American.
Restore the Republic, Reject the agenda of the Progressive Left!
