Obama's 'green jobs czar' worked with terror founder
Van Jones served on board of activist group where ex-Weatherman serves as top director

Jeff Jones tried to reconstitute the SDS just two years ago.

Despite being profiled early on in Glenn Beck’s czar series, Jeff Jones — who helped author the ObamaCare bill — has received far less scrutiny than Van Jones and some others. By now, though the barrage of radicalism may have inoculated you to the fact that a member of Obama’s team is best-known for his mug shots, Jeff Jones does indeed warrant the country’s attention.

Some people, not enough, are aware that Jeff Jones co-founded the Weathermen, led the Days of Rage in Chicago in 1969, and then went underground for the next eleven years with fellow revolutionary and current wife Eleanor Stein (who teaches “climate change” at Albany Law School).
Jeff Jones joined the Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, from which the Weathermen splintered in the fall of 1965. Two years later, he became the SDS's New York City regional director, a position in which he participated in nearly all of the group's major protests until 1969, including the 1968 Columbia University protests and the violent riots that same year at the Democratic National Convention.

In 1969, Jeff Jones founded the Weathermen with terrorists Bill Ayers and Mark Rudd when the three signed an infamous statement calling for a revolution against the American government inside and outside the country to fight and defeat what the group called U.S. imperialism. President Obama came under fire for his longtime, extensive association with Ayers.

Jeff Jones was a main leader and orchestrator of what became known as the Days of Rage, a series of violent riots in Chicago organized by the Weathermen. The culmination of the riots came when he gave a signal for rowdy protestors to target a hotel that was the home of a local judge presiding over a trial of anti-war activists.
The Movement for a Democratic Society (MDS) became official at a conference at The New School. Fellow travelers on the left were giddy, though one nominated board member couldn’t make it that day: Rashid Khalidi. (Some photos from the event.)

The press coverage:

— February 17, 2007. A bitter cold day did not prevent the Movement for a Democratic Society (MDS) from holding a well-attended conference at New York City’s New School University.

The event was held in the Graduate Center, 65 Fifth Avenue, and about 100 participants were in attendance. The meeting featured several speakers who are well known figures on the US Left and an agenda that centered around electing a board of directors for MDS, Incorporated — the non-profit arm of MDS that was founded last August in Chicago, at the national SDS convention.

Its purpose is to provide SDS’ student activists with a legal defense fund, monies for the Radical Education Project and a general fund for meetings, conventions and other SDS functions. Organizers were pleased with the turnout and excited about the election of Manning Marable as Chair of the new Board.
