Valerie Jarrett - Obama's Rasputin
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | September 26, 2012

Posted on 09/26/2012 1:53:16 PM PDT by raptor22

White House: She receives more protection than our Libyan ambassador, calls the president by his first name, dines and vacations with the First Family and had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden.

Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House senior adviser and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett reportedly had a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha's Vineyard.

"Jarrett seems to have a 24-hour, around-the-clock detail, with five or six agents full time," Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said in an interview recently with Breitbart news. If Stevens had a similar escort, he'd probably be alive today.

Such protection isn't usually available to senior advisers, but Jarrett is no ordinary adviser.

She almost always seems to be near the president and first lady, and her name keeps popping up at key moments, indicating the power and influence she wields.

Her influence is shown by an account in Richard Miniter's book "Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him."

Wow. Hadn’t thought of it all that way with Jarrett, but it rings so true.

The only problem I have with the whole theory is that Rasputin was so much more attractive than Valerie Jarrett. If he gets a 2nd term, she may face a similar fate to that of Rasputin.

So where are our otherwise famous checks and balances? I say, nowhere, because in our 18th century political system we elect our own King George.

She creeps me out too and has ever since the first time I saw her. Can’t say there is a person she reminds me of but maybe some kind of animal. I am thinking of a some kind of a big cat. Sneaky and sly, doing her work in the dark, out of sight.

Rasputin's body, poisoned (with enough cyanide to kill 5 men), shot four times (once between the eyes), badly beaten, tied up and wrapped in a carpet, drowned, was recovered from the river. An autopsy established that the cause of death was drowning.

Yes, I can certainly see the similarities.

I will tell you what scares me to death is, that Jarrett is the one who pushed Van Jones into the WH. Van Jones and Vernon Jarrett are from the same West Tn. area. I wonder who else might be? I NEVER thought of this area being a hot bed for the Communist Party.

Another interesting note, Jacob "Jack" Lew is the White House Chief of Staff. He replaced Daley who was booted by Zero because of Valerie. Jack is an Orthodox Jew.
A 2011 press release from the Religion News Service noted that Lew also "has extensive connections in the American Jewish community," and that he might be able to help President Obama "build a more friendly rapport" with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Vallerie - born in Iran - father Chicago Commie - all friends with O’Bumbles mentor from about age 10 thru’ high school, the avowed Communist from Chicago, Frank Marhall Davis, friends with ‘b’s grandparetns, went to Hawaii for the ‘mentor’ years...friends with Val and Dad and in the Chicago Communist nest...their circle of friends included Ayers and his dad, and the convicted slum landlord. She put the two young lawyers together (both have lost their right to practice law, but the media won't mention that) - probably assigning mooseshell as his ‘in house’ handler.

So, there has been a commie-mooseSlime coup of our government and NO ONE makes a peep.

Birds of a (red) feather.

Bottom line: She is O’bumbles comie ‘handler.’

To be technical, both Barack and Michelle Obama voluntarily “retired” their law licenses. They are not able to practice law unless the licenses are reinstated, but by the same token they are also not subject to attorney discipline in Illinois.

Valerie Jarrett is the best type of progressive Communist. Pro-Arab, Anti-American, Anti-capitalist unless she, herself, stands to profit. Had Chicago been selected to host the 2016 Olympics, Jarrett would have reaped a small fortune since she acquired much of the land intended for the Olympic Village. Valerie also plugged Michelle into the Cook County Democratic patronage feeding trough. For years, Michelle earned more money from her do nothing public sector jobs than did her lazy husband.

A silly and innacurate comparison. If Jarrett resembles anybody, it’s Martin Bormann, Hitler’s personal secretary.

Ms. Blanco was a more attractive woman than Valerie Jarret’s at her present age. I agree that Ms Jarret’s face is disturbing: her small dark eyes are more like that of a animal, without the whites of her eyes showing.

You bring up a great point.

Everytime there is a change of President, they can leave behind “appointed” staff and cabinet positions.

This was a problem for GW Bush because he didn’t view these people as being hostile to him .. and all the while they were continually stabbing him in the back.

First day of Romney/Ryan - GET RID OF ALLLLLLLL PRIVIOUSLY APPOINTED POSITIONS. That can include ALL positions in the DOJ and the FBI/CIA/state dept, etc.

I hear you, from the article, it seems as if the Democrat elites are grooming young, promising communists, scary! What worries me is how they are embracing radicals like San Antonio’s mayor Castro. The press turns a blind eye, yet, the pasts of these people are there for all to see, they don’t even hide their hatred for America, they embrace it! All those hippies, who hated America in the 60’s, never stopped hating, now, they are in positions of power to see it come to fruition, and they educate our youth!

Thanks for the Ping Raptor22. When I learned, in 2008, that the Mansour credited with sponsoring Obama was Don Warden, the virulent antiwhite, anti-American, revolutionary I used to listen to while I was a student at Berkeley, I paid attention. The recent discovery by Frank Miele that Vernon Jordan was communicating with Mansour/Warden in 1979, about the time Mansour casually described meeting Barry at Occidental. The Youtube video from Mansour’s home has apparently been removed from the Google archives, but I may have saved it; the pieces fit.

By 1979 Mansour was also known as a Wahabi recruiter in US prisons, but who knew about Wahabi recruiters, or about Wahabism. As David Horowitz explained, in the middle of communist activity himself at the time, the left and the Jihadis were happy to use each other, the Muslims confident that if it came to who would finally call the shots, academic Marxists aren't so handy with weapons, and the Marxists, many of the Jews, would not prevail where arguments weren't weapons any longer - no Alinsky rules in Islam.

Many in the media, some who probably had facts but who were afraid to use them four years ago, are now following the connections. Mansour was organizing the ragtag Black Muslims, few of whom, except for Malcolm X, understood or were accepted as “real” Muslims by Arabic Imams. The Saudi family surely knew the disaffected and hostile blacks could be useful as soldiers in the inevitable and eternal Jihad/war resulting in the Islamic domination of the world.

Vernon Jarrett's involvement with Marshall Davis, Ayers, Angela Davis, the whole cabal of Marxists spread from New York, Chicago, and Berkeley, was documented by Trevor Louden long ago, but the media have long protected the far left. I had friends who couldn't teach at Stanford or Columbia because they weren't active in Communist Party politics, and one who feared for her life when she wanted to leave her cell of doctors and lawyers.

The remarkable organizational penetration that sealed all of Obama’s records attests to the penetration of our federal administration by Marxist activists. Many expected journalism departments to be leftists, but those who hired John Holdren at Berkeley didn't know he was a hard line Marxist. Most of us would probably be startled to learn how many of those we know or know secretly identify themselves as Marxists, and at least cover for those who go public when necessary.

Sadly, most voters have no awareness of the significance of the underlying idiological forces at work. Those who escaped communism usually do, but when they act on their knowledge, as has Orly Taitz, many can't understand the urgency behind their battle to expose truths which they naively assume others will care about.

We may need to spend some generations as the Cubans have, living under a Marxist dictator, for there to be a recognition of what we gave up when we stopped honoring and protecting the Constitution by tacitly deciding it was alright to allow a man whose parents certainly did not have sole allegiance to our nation to have the authority to betray the other provisions or the Constitution as well. He told the world, including the Chief Justice of our Supreme Court that he is a naturalized citizen, and our Chief Justice administered the presidential oath, in direct violation of Article II Section 1.

Mansour and the Saudi families see that our principles haven’t the support that Sharia does among Muslims. Once Sharia is implemented the price for ignoring it is swift and inevitable. The foolish left will not like the result of their destruction of the protection of rights for individuals, but they may prevail.

You two guys have posted photos of two different women. I cannot make a connection between those two images. The woman in the lower post looks like a younger, Negro Babs Streisand. The one above answers better to the verbal descriptions in other posts of her demeanor and the impression she makes.

Wanna check your sources? I really think you've posted two different women.

My late husband was in counter intelligence during the Cold War. He warned me over and over that the communist and the Muzzies had infiltrated. He said that if we really knew what was going on in this country we would be literally scared to death. There was so much that he carried with him during the years, but at his death bed, it still weighed heavily on him. Sorry, I'm rambling.

It really pains me that so many have given their lives for naught.

"Then how did Condi Rice get to be provost at Stanford?"

Interesting question. Rice has some skeletons, political and personal, including associations with progressives and the far left that might have been revealed had she run for a Republican office, but was never, to my knowledge, close to being a Communist. Stanford, while it doesn't compete with Harvard, gets lots of money for educating children of the Saudis. One literally needs to be careful not to trip over someone praying on the patio at Tresider Union. Condi's graduate work, under Madeline Albright’s father, was in USSR and Russian history. She is a fine pianist.

Doctrinaire Marxism was specific to departments such as Comparative Literature, Spanish, Forestry and Energy and Environment, and probably others with which I had no involvement, and so won't comment. I knew two individuals, both from South America, with sparkling resumes, but whose families had suffered under communism, and were not active revolutionaries in the US, in word or deed. The were both rejected in favor of non-native speaking Marxists with degrees from less presdigious schools and who published mostly Marxist analysis which no one ever read. No party requirements required for physics, engineering, chem. It is part of getting older to meet many expats from China, the children of those whose futures were redirected, no Beijing University even for the brightest in the class, because a parent or relative was on the wrong side.
