PRESIDENT JARRETT: "Senior Adviser" Reportedly Calling All the Shots, Including Those In Ferguson

For those wondering how Barack Obama -- a man seemingly engaged full-time campaigning, fundraising, and rabble-rousing -- could also have the bandwidth to weaken America both at home and abroad, the answer is really quite simple.

The leader of the free world is actually a woman named Valerie Jarrett, a longtime crony of Barack and Michelle Obama, who appears to call all of the shots in the Oval Office.

In the White House, Jarrett has been linked to a wide variety of scandals and other policy debacles.

There are credible reports that Jarrett blocked the attack on Osama Bin Laden's compound on three separate occasions.

Similar reports indicate that she gave the "stand down" order to would-be rescuers in Benghazi on 9/11/2012.

In 2012, she was reported to have led Obama's "secret negotiations" with Iran's Mullahs. Subsequent accounts depicted Jarrett as working with Iran's nuclear experts to ensure the Islamic Republic could continue on its march to build nuclear weapons.

On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal's Kim Strassel summarized the ramifications of Jarrett's litany of policy failures in stark terms: everyone but her is expendable.

Among those thrown under Jarrett's bus: Christina Romer, Jim Jones, Bill Daley, Leon Panetta, Kathleen Sebelius, Rahm Emanuel, Austan Goolsbee, Larry Summers, Peter Orszag, Vivek Kundra, Eric Shinseki, Keith Alexander, James Clapper and, most recently, Chuck Hagel. Hagel's ostensible replacement, Michèle Flournoy, turned down the opportunity because she didn't "want to be a doormat".

As Strassel asks:

Who would want to work for a boss whose experiments in big government all but guarantee their reputation will be ruined in the aftermath of a bureaucratic collapse? ... And who wants to work for a boss who doesn’t have your back? ... Is it possible to haveany other experience working for Mr. Obama—a boss who doesn’t listen, views everything politically, always thinks he’s right, and whose policies are a recipe for a lost reputation?

Which brings us at last to the Democrats' latest haven for race-baiting, Ferguson.

Jarrett was in contact with Missouri's Governor Nixon in the run-up to the announcement of the Grand Jury's decision.

While Nixon denied the administration pressured him to resist activating the National Guard to put down the violent protests, the White House has admitted that Jarrett was in close contact with the governor during the first 24 hours of violent protests.

Nixon came under heavy criticism for failing to deploy the National Guard to quash the protests, which resulted in massive property damage. It now would seem that Jarrett had a hand in that decision as well.

And who is our crypto-president?

In 2008, The Boston Globe exposed Jarrett's background as the failed chief executive of The Habitat Company, which managed government-subsidized housing complexes in Chicago from 2001 until 2006. Her leadership, if you can call it that, resulted in violations so egregious that many units were deemed "uninhabitable" and eventually the federal government was forced to seize the properties.

That year, Judicial Watch named Jarrett to its "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians" list for her ties to the failed housing complexes and "other shady real estate scandals".

Jarrett's family background is equally troubling. Her father-in-law was a card-carrying Communist who worked with Obama's mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.

Jarrett's grandfather Robert Taylor is reported to have served in a leadership role for the Soviet Union's American front group during World War II, when Stalin was still allied with the Third Reich. Taylor's "American Peace Mobilization" was a Soviet initiative designed to keep America out of the war so that Hitler and Stalin could divvy up Europe and Asia virtually unopposed.

So, in short, the first female President is a hard-core Leftist with an abysmal track record for decision-making, a horrifically failed tenure as a chief executive, a stunning inability to learn, and a steely refusal to take responsibilities for her many failures.

But she's the president and you're not.

Which explains why Jarrett -- against all historic precedent -- was given a Secret Service detail for protection.

"The leader of the free world..."

There's a phrase I haven't heard since, oh about January of 2009.

Democrats are multi-nationalists and they despise the very notion of America being a "leader" of anything, much less a "free world".

Thanks, btw, I tried for years to get reporters to cover the fact that Jarrett was Obama's Rasputin. For the last two years I've simply taken to referring to her has "President Jarrett", pointing out that she has, since day 1, been what Bush would have called "the Decider", while Obama just reads the teleprompter.

Really nice to see a journalist point this fact out. In a headline no less.

Oh yeah, remember the hijacking of the Maersk Alabama, the one Tom Hanks won awards for fictionalizing (while getting all the facts wrong)? The captain of the US Navy ship repeatedly asked for authority to take out the pirates. These requests were turned down by the "White House" - by Jarrett, personally. This included a request made when the Capt. of the Maersk threw himself overboard from the small boat the pirates had him in to give the Navy a clear shot at the remaining people in the boat - all pirates. Finally, what ended the standoff, was when the Navy Capt. did a bit of reading and decided his standing orders gave him sufficient authority to act without seeking specific permission from above. So, he did so.

The same thing happened with Bin Laden. President Jarrett on at least three occasions stopped the raid from being launched. It wasn't until Leon Panetta decided his standing orders gave him sufficient authority to act without seeking permission. He confirmed his interpretation of his orders with Hillary (yeah, the vile harpy actually did something right. No one is all bad). He launched the raid while Obama was golfing, without asking for Jarrett's permission. They then waited until it couldn't be recalled before informing Obama - who then had to be plucked off the golf course by marine helicopter and brought to the WH situation room. He was pissed, of course, until one of his flunkies explained to him the advantage he had - if the raid failed, he could blame Panetta alone, but if it succeeded he could take all the credit.

All of this is on the record - leaks by Obama flunkies. Just wait, though, once Obama's in his last year they'll all be publishing tell-all "memoirs".

D.C. Whispers: Barack Obama “Isolated, Insolent, & Inebriated”

lgstarr said...

Funny, but Hillary is also supposedly "inebriated". One wonders if this were to be true--"Other whispers are putting Schumer as the new Democratic leader of the Senate by 2016 – a promise made to him months earlier and then repeated more recently by figures close to the Clinton Machine."--does that mean they belong to the same wine club? I'd love a recommendation, since it's so hard to choose between them (wine clubs, that is).
