Posted on 09/10/2012 5:10:47 PM PDT by maggiesnotebook
Valerie Jarrett, long known in some circles as the "other half of Barack's brain," and in other circles as a Chicago slumlord, has her own security detail. Jarrett's official title is "Senior Advisor to the President." Here's the point:
The idea that someone such as Jarrett--who officially plays no role in national security or counter-terrorism--would receive USSS protection would be laughable if it werent, in fact, real. Its like a tale out of the Versailles Court of the Sun King--the sort of anecdote that provokes the peasants, eventually, to revolution. But in the meantime, before the deluge, Jarrett plans to live it up; surrounded by agents with guns, she is queen of her own court. In other words, for pure conspicuous consumption, Jarrett puts her fellow Chicagoan, the laughably self-important Desirée Rogers, to shame.What would the FBI under any other President but Barack Obama have done? Maybe the same. It's obviously impossible to protect everyone receiving high-profile threats but maybe not. After all, this is post-9/11, post Salman Rushdie, post-Geert Wilders, post-Theo Van Gogh. This administration has the greatest disdain for those accusing Islamists of anything, including threats made in defense of the prophet muhammad.
As an aside, on the issue of who merits government security, we might recall the case of Molly Norris. In 2010, the Seattle-based cartoonist took part in the international Draw Muhammad campaign and, after she receiving death threats, the FBI told her that she was on her own. That is, the US government could not--more precisely, would not--protect her. Instead, Norris was advised to leave her job, change her name, and go into hiding. And thats what she did; what choice did she have? Breitbart
As Obama's Senior Advisor, she has advised him and the public that the purpose of Government is to give you a job.
As landlord of a slum area in Chicago, she, Barack and Michelle, almost...almost...convinced the Olympics Committee to come to Chicago. Rio won the gig, but Jarrett had a lot riding on it. It wasn't a happy time for her. The following is from a previous post (I urge you to read the details of Jarrett's Grove Parc Project here):
How do you take a housing facility, known as a preservation for affordable housing, bearing a $12 million mortgage, designate it for demolition, sell it to the city of Chicago for $1,000.00 and then receive $1 million from a leftist foundation in preparation for the coming Olympics which are not coming! Only the other side of Barack Obamas brain, Valerie Jarrett could bring about these miraculous events.Judicial Watch sued Chicago's Mayor Daley for withholding information relating to Valerie Jarretts ethics waiver, which allowed her to abandon White House rules and spearhead Chicagos failed bid for Olympics 2016.
Once Obama's former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, got back to Chicago and won the Mayoral race, he got right on the disgraceful plight of Grove Parc where federally-subsidized residents lived with rats running the hallways and sewers backed up in kitchens. A $30.5 Million federal grant was given to the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, which was awarded specifically because it included "fixing up" Grove Parc.
Do you follow Ulsterman's White House Insider? I can't vouch for it, but many people who pay a lot more attention to these reports than I do (lack of time), believes this whistleblower is genuine. Scroll down the page and read about Valerie Jarrett.
This reads as if she is a genuine snorting imperious pig, maintaining a pig sty and living the good life in the farm house.
Liberal elitists in positions of power view themselves as royalty. Of course they deserve SS details. In their minds they deserve everything their subjects can give them.
Quite right. Aristotle wrote of despots needing protection from the people they oppress.
As far as I know, none of Zippy's Czars were approved by congress in the first place. They were unconstitutionally usurped by the usurper.
I wouldn't be surprised many people across the country have no idea who Jacob "Jack" Lew is.
Valerie Jarrett is the person pulling Obama’s strings, the person who controls the teleprompter, and she was too corrupt to serve in Daley’s Administration. Imagine that.
It appears she has received large amounts of financial largesse thanks to Obama, Rahm Emmanuel and the citizens of Chicago.
I wouldn’t mind buying a slum and having the city fix up my apartments for me or gettinf rid of a 12 million dllar mortgage for $1,000 dollars and then receiving a Million dollars for sticking the city with the debt.
Hy Obama supporters, Valerie Jarret is your leader keeping you in the slums. Think if you had a real opportunity? Might as well know she is as much a plantation owner as the old white ones.
The question occurs to me often, why does Mooshell tolerate Val? Any normal wife would be livid with jealousy of this good looking woman who is her husband’s right hand. I’m thinking only a wife who knows she has no reason to fear another woman. She might be jealous of Reggie Love.
Valerie's father was Vernon Jarrett, an angry communist who wound up his life as the chief grievance columnist at the Chicago Sun Times. He was a crank and an SOB.
It's more than a little ironic to see his daughter prancing around the levers of power, looking down her snoot at the unwashed, and enjoying the trappings of power.
Her father must be spinning in his grave.
Jarrett, good-looking? Are you blind?
That’s about it.
Mister Da, I think the problem is, she is very close to Obama and undoubtedly has access to classified information that she not have - and that is outside of her job at the White House.
I think Jarrett knew MO first and then gave her her 6-figure job at the hospital, doing nothing. Without looking it up, I think MO had been working in Daley’s office.
