Obama's Connections to the violent SDS: Jeff Jones

News

The eleventh in a series of posts on President Obama's connections to the violent, far-Left progressive Students for a Democratic Society -- a known terrorist group -- based on a March 2012 feature in The Blaze Magazine titled "Dangerous Birds of a Feather."

JEFF JONES: He’s the quintessential SDS alum who still has his fingers in multiple radical pies. Jones was on the SDS National Council and helped Ayers and Dohrn form the Weathermen. Arrested in 1981 for his role in an armored truck robbery, he became a reporter and editor covering New York state government before becoming communications director for a state environmental lobby. Today, few clients of his New York media and campaign-planning firm, Jeff Jones Strategies, likely remember mug shots of the lanky man in jeans and a tank top.

Jones also co-founded the Soros-connected Apollo Alliance that’s credited with helping write ObamaCare and the Obama stimulus bill. Former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, a self-described communist, has also served on the Apollo board, along with John Podesta of Soros’ Center for American Progress.
