President Obamas top adviser Valerie Jarrett was behind a plan to force a showdown with Republicans over ObamaCare as part of a strategy to regain Democratic control of the House next year, claims author Ed Klein.
Klein who wrote a provocative biography about Obama last year entitled The Amateur said White House insiders refer to Jarrett as The Night Stalker because she is the only presidential aide who frequently spends time in the family quarters and dines with the Obamas.
Klein, who is conducting a research for a new Obama tome scheduled for next spring, called Jarrett the architect of Obamas take-no- prisoners approach when it comes to his signature domestic policy initiative.
It was Jarrett who advised Obama that voters would mostly blame Republicans if the federal government ground to a halt, providing a golden opportunity to swing back control of the House to Democrats in the 2014 mid-term elections, according to Klein.
A Democratic House would give Obama an opportunity to pass immigration and other legislation blocked by the current Republican majority.
It was during one of those nightly sessions that Jarrett devised the no-negotiating strategy that Obama has employed in his fight with the GOP over the government shutdown, Klein said, citing sources within the administration.
Valerie came up with the concept late at night, after the kids and grandma and were gone.
She convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014 .
Rationally, I agree with you.
But the left isn’t rational. And Hillary certainly isn’t rational.
Hillary doesn’t fight for the Left. Hillary fights for Hillary. And she fights dirty.
Of course, I’m being redundant. Everyone on the Left is like that. But Hillary is... special.
That’s why they had to give her SoS. I seriously doubt they wanted her around at all. But for some reason, the only thing they could accomplish was keeping her out of the White House. As far as the agenda is concerned, it didn’t change a bit. Obamacare is Hillarycare, and the rest of Obama’s tenure is exactly what would have been slated for Hillary.
Except, of course, that Hillary would have gone straight for the concentration camps in her first term.
On the one hand the Left is subject to power and goals analysis. On the other hand, it’s a bag full of screeching, fighting cats.
All I’m saying is that if Hillary isn’t directly stopped by the Left, she will exert her every effort to take over the Left and make it her tool. It’s her dream and her goal and she doesn’t think of anything else. Her only agenda is power through hate. Like a shark that has to keep swimming or die, Hillary has to keep hating, or she’ll die. And for her, hate IS politics.
Funny, I think the Left threw in with her because they thought she was so maniacal that she’d finally get it done for them. Now she’s this nightmare they can’t get rid of, like the alien in the movie Alien that is trying to climb back into the ship through the rocket exhaust pipe.
They better fire the rocket soon, or she’s going to get back in. And if she does, there will be hell to pay for those who dumped her for Obama - and they all know it.
You’re exactly right. I vote for the saudis and soros. obama is just a puppet, not smart enough to find the bath house himself...I mean the bathroom.
She is obama’s Rasputin.
Just posted the same thing. The woman is pure evil.
Wow! I didn’t make that connection. Back the clinton golden years.
The saudis are the big guns.
Democrats always define heir oponents in the worst ways. The GOPe is too wusified to define truthfully that Democrates have morphed from being the partynof cotton slavery to the one of feminist sex slavery and pimping.
It would seem that demeaning humanity, in one way or the other, has been an attitude dogging Democrats from antebellum times. Slavery, Jim Crow, welfare, the new black pity party racism, race identity politics.
God created all these people and God is frowning at these sins. God will forgive but the grace of forgiveness has to be accepted (it’s what the Good Book calls repenting).
She's Iranian. Call her a Persian Ho. Just keep in mind thaty no matter who gets blamed it was obama who refused to reduce government spending by one dime.
C'mon man. Half the spending is actually waste and corruption.!!!!!!!!!
Half the population (approximately) pays no income tax!!!!!!!!!!!
Something wrong in this White House and Senate! I admire the Republicans for trying to reduce spending before the bankruptcy of the US government.
Good, now we know who is behind the order to put up the barricades and cause pain. I have a hunch she was the one who gave the order to stand down in Bengahzi as well.
My take was that Obama’s goal is to wrest Constitutional power from Congress. I missed when Levin said how he’d do that, but I inferred he meant by refusing to negotiate and by moving the goal posts. His upcoming refusal to pay debts, violating the Constitution and statutory law, would prove it.
According to Levin, this isn’t about a debt ceiling deal or a budget or Obamacare. It isn’t only about destroying the GOP.
It’s about vesting power in the Presidency. At the end of all this, a majority opposition in the House becomes useless.
It's "Rush's Theorum" in action and on perfect display.
I don't dispute her Machiavellian influence or her evilness. But what I see is Obama once again being disconnected from his OWN evil deeds. It now appears that we are to believe that everything he does is attributed to VJ, he is weak and lazy, and none of his destructive policies are HIS doing....and a lot of this is now being based on the speculation and words of one author selling a book.
Folks, VALERIE JARRETT IS OBAMA'S LIGHTNING ROD!
One of her functions is to take the heat off her boss when necessary. Events have led to a situation where she has to emerge more and more from the shadows to deflect criticisms away from Obama and to absorb them herself. This is an intentional ploy!
She may be the greatest conniver in the world, but it takes two to tango.....and if anyone thinks she is running the country solo and that Obama is a mere puppet in her hands is dreaming. He is a well-trained marxist with an agenda he doesn't deviate from.
He is also an expert at not being connected personally with anything bad he causes. In fact, as Rush states over and over, he goes out on the campaign trail inveighing against the very problems he, himself, created through bad policies....and promising to fix them.
Barack Obama is the ultimate Teflon president....and Valerie Jarrett is there to see that he remains that way....and she cares naught about any risk to herself in that role.
Never! If she were gone, who would wind up obama every morning and set him up behind her teleprompter? Anyway, he can't fire his boss.
It sounds to me like Klein is setting the stage for a rebellion against Valerie. If her strategy for 2014 backfires, the liberals will be putting pressure on Obama to stop listening to her. I hope to watch that spectacle.
That’s President Jarrett.
Levin said that all they had to do was refuse to negotiate and it leaves the choice of defaulting or capitulating. Every time which makes the debt limit moot an gives the power to the party that refuses to deal.
