Obama's Strange Dependence on Valerie Jarrett (Why she is the most powerful woman in Washington)
American Thinker ^ | 08/14/2012 | Karin McQuillan

Posted on 08/14/2012 8:36:08 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

President Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden three times before saying yes, because he got cold feet about the possible political harm to himself if the mission failed. Instead of listening to advisors from the U.S. military, Defense, or even State, Obama was acting on the advice of White House politico and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett?

This account comes from Richard Miniter's upcoming book Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors who Decide for Him. Miniter has written a half-dozen books on the war on terror. He is relying on an unnamed source within the U.S. military Joint Special Operations Command who was directly involved in the operation and planning of the Osama bin Laden kill mission.

Is the story credible? According to Edward Klein, a reporter once asked Obama if he ran every decision by Jarrett. Obama answered, "Yep. Absolutely." Edward Klein, former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor of the New York Times Magazine for many years, describes Jarrett as "ground zero in the Obama operation, the first couple's friend and consigliere." Klein -- who claims he used a minimum of two sources for each assertion in his book on the Obama presidency, The Amateur -- writes in detail about Jarrett opposing the raid on bin Laden. She told Obama not to take the political risk. Klein thought Obama ignored Jarrett's advice. Miniter tells us he listened to her, three times telling Special Operations not to take the risk to go after bin Laden.

We need to understand the role Valerie Jarrett plays in Obama's private and political life.

"If it wasn't for Valerie Jarrett, there'd be no Barack Obama to complain about," starts Klein's chapter on Jarrett.

Yes, probably that. And also Jarrett could be the “case officer” handling Obama and pulling his strings.

So, in future lists of US Presidents there will always be an asterisk (*) by Obama’s name.

*Possibly not a real US born citizen. Real power vested in Valerie Jarrett.

0bama spent ‘just the summer’ in Pakistan with that effeminate Chandoo guy. But in actuality, was it for an entire year? 0bama was supposed to be at Columbia at the time (and no one remembers him) but it is now believed he spent a year in Pakistan. Is it possible 0bama’s handlers are Pakistani and 0bama didn’t want to upset them by going into their country to get OBL? And of course we know Jarrett was born in Iran..

All of this jives with EXACTLY what White House Insider has been saying via Ulsterman, yet his posts are still not allowed here.

“Because Jarrett knows who Barry is really having sexual relations with???”

That has to be part of it. ..but the real reason for the depth of the connection has yet to be revealed.
Moochie’s all in with it too which makes it even freakier. what does V. have on her? .. likely the potential bombshell being leaked to the media(who would ignore it) AND her gay husband that Sasha isn’t his..ala Edna’s past affair.

Safe to say that Val’s marching orders come from a Soros like cahuna with the real Progressive, One World Socialist movement. Jarrett is the “agent” just like Tom Cruise was Katie’s.

It amazes me that anyone!! wouldn’t recognize Valerie’s name at this point. When you visit Hussein in the Oval(him wearing Birkenstocks and shorts, watching ESPN and bouncing a basketball), she stands there with a clipboard and signals when your ten minutes is up. “What you got?” is how he greets you, never taking his eyes off the screen. Talk fast with no idea who, if anyone, is listening. But you sure as heck know when you’re done due to Val’s stare and signal.

This is all so scary. Get a grip, America.

Gosh, she bears a striking resemblance to one of those plastic Japanese s$% dolls. With the dead eyes and everything.

Except, like, a kind of uglier version.

That’s fascinating.

"Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, speaks [lovingly] about Green Job Czar, Van Jones, at the Netroots Convention on August 12, 2009. Then Van Jones speaks about [a COMMUNIST] transforming [of] the whole society."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnDxzvc0OXk&feature=related
_________________________________________________

VAN JONES (Obama's former 'Green Jobs Czar')

Obama's former "Green Jobs Czar", Van Jones, links "Green Movement" to communist movement

See "Goal is complete revolution" below...

"Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution," surfaced on the Internet."--via TheObamaFile

VAN JONES SHOCK ADMISSION [in his own words]: "Goal is Complete Revolution"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fh4Z0V0zNQg
_________________________________________________

Here is the transcript of the above YouTube video:

“Right after Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat if the civil rights leaders had jumped out and said OK now we want reparations for Slavery, we want redistribution of all the wealth, and we want to legalize mixed marriages. If we’d come out with a maximum program the very next day, they’d been laughed at. Instead they came out with a very minimum. “We just want to integrate these busses…”

But, inside that minimum demand was a very radical kernel that eventually meant that from 1964 to 1968 complete revolution was on the table for this country.

And, I think that this green movement has to pursue those same steps and stages.

Right now we say we want to move from suicidal gray capitalism to something eco-capitalism where at least we’re not fast-tracking the destruction of the whole planet. Will that be enough? No, it won’t be enough. We want to go beyond the systems of exploitation and oppression all together. But, that’s a process and I think that’s what’s great about the movement that is beginning to emerge is that the CRISIS is so severe in terms of joblessness, violence and now ecological threats that people are willing to be both pragmatic and visionary.

So the green economy will start off as a small subset and we are going to push it and push it and push it until it becomes the engine for transforming the whole society.

_________________________________________________

Here's the original source for the Van Jones quote about the time he spent in jail following the Rodney King/LA riots (Jones was arrested in "peaceful" protests in San Fran). It was in a 2005 interview he did with East Bay Express. They of course (what else?) claim he "renounced his rowdy Black Nationalist ways" since then (yet he's calling for "complete revolution" in Aug 2009! ...see above):

But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."

"...And, you know, the thing about Valerie Jarrett... she's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When she comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until she bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', the liberals all come in and they... rip you to pieces..."

That's it.

Back in the old days these types would pretend to look human. After a couple of decades of Hollyweird "normalizing" plastic faces though, the aliens no longer need bother with the disguises.

Well, there was that early pioneer of the natural look, Beldar Conehead. He said he came from France and noone was the wiser.

His only black experience was his grandfather's creepy old friend, Frank Marshall, a card-carrying Communist and self-disclosed pederast, who was Obama's voice of authentic blackness.

Fortunately for Obama, Blago held out for a bigger bribe for appointing Obama’s replacement in the Senate; had Blago accepted Obama’s offer (made through an intermediary, of course) of obtaining several corporate directorships for Mrs. Blago right away and some goodies for Blago himself after he left office in return for his appointment of Jarrett to the Senate, then he wouldn’t have his closest confidante working for him in the White House. And we all know what great advice she’s given Obama.

Her father had a job there, so she was born there. I have a cousin born in Japan, a brother born in Spain, a sister born in Germany. They are all Americans - it was just where their parents were working at the time.

That’s what I said, no? We’re looking at a conspiracy perpetrated on the U.S. by the Jihadists. 0bama was OBSESSED with going into Libya.. And without Congressional approval. And his bogus ‘Arab Spring’. That was nothing but a smokescreen for the implementation of Sharia Law and the ultimate destruction of Israel. Sick, perverse Jihadist regime members Jarrett and Abedin leading the way..

And that FOOL James Clapper who said the Muslim Brotherhood isn’t violent or extremist. WTF? Who’s making even the old white guys say this chit?

They have a long familial history.
Her father was an avowed Communist and hung out with Frank Marshal Davis. They worked together as members of the publicity committee of the Citizens’ Committee to Aid Packing-House Workers in 1948.

She is the closest thing to mommy he has.

“Why is she the most powerful woman in Washington?”

she has a copy of his REAL birth certificate
she KNOWS who his mother and father were
and, most importantly, if somehow, he finally “goes down” under the burden of the illusion, she walks away free

any other questions?!!

I noticed early on that they are both mulattos, and, starting in Chicago, might very well have felt a “kinship” with each other. Obamuzzie has always been short on actual friends and one that looks like him would have been an easy step. One that blows his own commiekrap would have made it even easier. I haven’t heard a word yet about where the Obamuzzie presidential library/one-holer will be located but the files they stash there will be fascinating.
