Skip to comments.Obama Insider Raises Concern About His Isolation Behind Jarrett & Michelle; Expect Press to Ignore
Posted on 07/14/2014 10:05:46 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In the early 1970s, the press obsessed about President Nixon's alleged "isolation," especially as the Watergate scandal, which in an objective lookback has to be seen as relative child's play compared to what we're seeing now, unfolded. Proof that Nixon's "isolation" had been a constant media theme in previous months is found in an NBC Nightly News report on May 10, 1973, when a White House staff reorganization was characterized by reporter Richard Valeriani as "Nixon moving to end President('s) isolation."
On Fox News's "The Five" on Friday, Democrat Bob Beckel relayed what he said was an anonymous comment by a person in a position to know about how cut off from external advice President Barack Obama is. It seems arguably creepier than any degree of isolation Nixon may have ever had, for reasons which I will explain below. Let's see what Beckel had to say following co-host Andrea Tantaros's comment that Obama has a "Stepford staff just sort of nodding at whatever he says," and Greg Gutfeld's assertion that Obama "doesn't have anybody in his circle" with the nerve or access to intervene (bolds are mine):
... ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: I think if he had advisors around him that weren't Stepford staff just sort of nodding at whatever he says, they would pull him aside and they would say, it's not a good look for you. This is serious, OK?
... (GREG) GUTFELD: You know what he needs? In every movie, the main character has a best friend that comes over and tells him all the things he needs hear to get the girl back. He has less friends than E. coli.
He doesn't have anybody in his circle that says, "Dude, time for an intervention, you're scaring the crap out of the country, you've got to stop playing pool." He doesn't have that.
It's time for an intervention. But the groupies in the media, they won't help him.
... BECKEL: I talked to a guy who is intimately involved in their campaign, both of them. And I said to him, can you guys give me anything to work with? Anything? It would be nice.
And he said about Greg's point about the close people around him, he said you have to know what it's like to get through Valerie Jarrett and Michele Obama, and I think that's a tough deal for anybody on a staff to do. This guy is not on the staff, but he made it pretty clear to me, the Stepford comment is maybe something to that, because he lives in a zone that nobody else goes to.
... (KIMBERLY) GUILFOYLE: I don't think he wants to hear it either. I don't know that he's very open (to criticism Ed.) --
BECKEL: Oh, you're right about that.
If this characterization was coming from a Republican or conservative insider, it would be widely covered. But in this instance, anything beyond stone silence from the rest of the establishment press will be a surprise.
The complaints about Nixon's "isolation" revolved around how no one could supposedly get past "Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell and Dean," whose power was memorialized as they were on their way down in a 1970s song.
As reprehensible as some of these men's actions were, they were at least people who came in with solid backgrounds and credentials. Imagine how much further the press would have turned up the heat on Nixon in the 1970s if his gatekeeping inner circle had consisted only of wife Pat and just one of those four gentlemen. With Obama, it's arguably worse than that theoretical situation would have been, because Valerie Jarrett has nothing resembling the resume with real-world military, business or legal experience any of those four men had.
But here we are. Unlike what occurred during the Nixon administration, don't count on anyone in the establishment press to make anything beyond the occasional quiet and quickly buried observation the nation's president being in "a zone that nobody else goes to."
Exactly. What can you expect from the pathetic feckless fool on the hill?
My convictions have not changed, but I have decided to subdue my fury and venom towards these people and now just pray to the Lord that he would continue to knock on the door of their hearts to bring them to repentance and restoration. That said, I will never submit to tyranny because I firmly believe that it is His will that all of his creation are entitled to liberty. I will never bow to evil, no matter the cost.
So Obama is whipped. No big surprise really - a guy who can’t make a decision, who can barely talk without a telepromptor - and he’s run by his bitchy, white hating, not so smart wife and the Iranian. These two nincompoops are running ....err...ruining...our country.
Not to mention the weatherman underground.
This is nothing new. Obama hasn’t made one decision since he got there. He didn’t even make the decision to run. He’s simply a puppet.
Many people have said the Clinton’s marriage is a sham. I believe Michelle and Valeria pull the strings. But someone else actually gives the orders as when to pull them, which direction and how hard.
I agree, and boy how I wish those evil faces get revealed.
That is my prayer, for the light to be shone in those dark hidey holes and light up the faces of these freaks.
Soros has to be in the mix somewhere...not to mention other self-dealing billionaires.
"Someone else" represents Communist ideology couple to Arab money.
Barry the fraud Soetoro is a wannabe dick tator.
the media made he a god. his voters made him a god. his advisors made him a god. and now he surrounded by 2 women who are gods to him.
This won’t end well
Amen! You and me both!
“The worst of Nixon’s staff were giants compared to the best of the Obama or Clinton administrations”
Boy howdy, you ain’t kidding there. Nixon had a lot of creeps around him, but Clinton’s goons made the skin crawl.
As for Valerie Jarrett...I know this sounds kooky, but there’s something about her that puts a chill in my blood. Especially when she smiles. That smile always makes me think of a fly caught in a spider web, and the last thing the fly sees before the spider eats him...
The worst of Nixon's staff were giants compared to the best of the Obama or Clinton administrations.And they also inspired a cute song.
...the 1979 story was written by none other than Vernon Jarrett- the leftist journalist who was the future father-in-law of Varlerie Jarrett, now Obamas top advisor. Jarrett, as Miele notes, was one of the best friends and a colleague of Frank Marshall Davis, the black Communist who became influential in the life of Barack Obama.
In his article, Jarrett wrote that those receiving these funds would help create a new black advocacy for a homeland for the Palestinians and presumably support other Arab interests in the Middle East
...Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students?
Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency
