Obama Insider Raises Concern About His Isolation Behind Jarrett & Michelle; Expect Press to Ignore
NewsBusters ^ | July 14, 2014 | Tom Blumer

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."

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.

For reasons not known to me, Ulsterman material is not posted at FR. But, whoever Ulsterman's White House Insider is (and I believe that he is real, not made up), most of what he said about the Obama camp has been spot-on, with his info coming out well before other media outlets/blogs posted it. And, according to this Insider, ValJar and Bertha Butt are running this country (into the ground) while Obama travels the country hitting the local pool halls and shaking down more clueless Democrat donors.

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.

"Someone else" represents Communist ideology couple to Arab money.

While Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obamination run the country into the ground, Barry the Magic Negro has the MSM protecting him with a Praetorian Guard of serial liars. The MSM have pledged their slimy souls to defend the Kenyan-Muslim-Marxist with every fiber of their being.

“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...

What a coincidence Valeria Jarrette is a gate keeper in the WH

A 1979 story by Vernon Jarrett Sheds New Light on possible Arab funding of Obama’s Higher Education

...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 Obama’s 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

 »  Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Muslim Purchase Of U.S. Presidency

...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

I have never been able to understand how Jarrett controls him. From what was reported in Blood Feud, it is even worse than I thought. I just don’t get it.

She is from deep within his past and knows everything about him, therefore she controls him. But I think he is not only isolated by those two, he is also drugged, kept in the dark, and allowed to while away his hours doing nothing or worse than nothing.

I believe he is on some sort of drugs, legal or illegal. Wish he had to take a drug test. I used to believe in checks and balances and never once thought one person could do so much harm to America in such a short time.

My son (27) was asking what would happen if at the end of his term he just refuses to leave office. Would the Capitol police physically remove him? Would his SS people protect him? What if he declares some sort of martial law and suspends elections? What if he issues an executive order making himself president for another term? What would the procedure be to remove him? Would the military get involved?

Perhaps he will just go gently into the good night but I won’t be surprised if he doesn’t. Valerie likes the power too much.

I think the thing that does it most for me is the media talking about the “Obama cool,” you where supposedly he’s cool under fire.

Fact is, that’s exactly what someone does when they don’t know what the hell to do in a situation.

It’s like when you’re playing pool with someone for the first time. You’re missing shots, but you’re not sweating, you’re playing it cool. The other guy thinks, maybe this guy is hustling me...It’s a bluff a big bluff...

But guess what, it’s become a dangerous bluff because the world knows about this guy’s jive stance. We have 800 or 900 American GIs in that hell hole Iraq, who would have been well protected had we kept 20,000 or 40,000 troops there...instead they are every day one day closer to someone on the inside killing them or taking them hostage.

It will take only one. Only one lonely brave GI captured, or decapitated or anything else...then the boy king will react to it... or not react... until the next time.

If you think times were bad with Jimmy CArter, you ain’t seen nothing yet....

It can only and will only get worse....

From Politico Magazine article, Jarrett insisted on Holder as DoJ

LOCKED IN THE CABINET,

... In fact, Obama’s political guys had been skeptical of Holder’s appointment from the beginning, quietly backing Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano over the easygoing career prosecutor, whom they considered unimpressive in vetting interviews.

But they were blocked by the president-elect and his senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, the Obamas’ Chicago friend and mentor who didn’t seriously consider any candidate besides Holder. Jarrett has had an all-access pass to the first family, a back channel to Obama unlike any other adviser, and she soon earned the sobriquet “Eric’s appeals

Imagine the situation in William Ayers' Communist cell in the eighties. Soviet funding was drying up as the USSR was going broke.

At the same time, since the seventies, the Communist movement had been assiduously cultivating blacks to serve as foot soldiers in the coming revolution.

But, since the late seventies, Arab money was also cultivating blacks...for their own purposes.

Suddenly, here was an opportunity to merge the three disparate movements for mutual benefit.

Waring from Andrew Breitbart at CPAC 2012: This Is Not Your Mother's Democratic Party

The narrative is going to come out: that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver pony-tails [left wing academics] back in the 1980s, like Bill [Ayers] and Bernadine Dohrn who said "one day, we're going to have the presidency.'And the rest of us slept while they plotted and they plotted and they plotted.

And they oversaw hundreds of millions of dollars in the Annenberg Challenge, from real capitalists, who gave it to their children and their children's children [who] then became communists.

...It's the same radicals, they've been in your life since 'Senator Obama' became part of your vocabulary. They are at war with you. They attack you. They throw eggs at you. And -- guess what? -- the media looks the other way. You're domestic terrorists, you know.

...This is my thesis: the anti-war movement was never about anti-war. It was a Saul Alinsky community-organizing tool to get Barack Obama and the Left elected. It went away immediately

Very little on the Left is about what is claimed to be about.

Similarly, Communism is never about elevating the fortunes of the poor. It is about gaining power for the leadership...and maintaining it.
