  • Obama team’s 2020 signals spark chatter among Dems

    The Hill ^ | September 3, 2017 | Amie Parnes
    Democrats are expressing concern that advisers and aides to former President Obama have already begun signaling which candidate they might support for the White House in 2020. Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama’s closest confidantes, and David Simas, the CEO of Obama’s foundation, have sent smoke signals urging former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) to enter the race. Simas, who once served as a top aide to Patrick, is an ardent supporter of the former governor, sources tell The Hill, while Jarrett has privately told friends that she would do what it takes to support him. And Politico reported last month...

    CNN has tapped the daughter of President Obama’s closest adviser to cover the Department of Justice — an assignment that comes a week after President-elect Donald Trump branded the network “fake news,” The Post has learned. Laura Jarrett’s assignment comes a week after Trump publicly refused to answer a CNN correspondent’s question at a press conference. “You are fake news,” Trump said to CNN’s Jim Acosta. Valerie Jarrett’s daughter quietly joined CNN in September as a reporter in the network’s Washington bureau. She came to CNN with no experience in journalism. But the Harvard educated lawyer defended companies and individuals...

Today as an American citizen exercising his Constitutional First Amendment Right to Free Speech ... I state that someday it will be truthfully known that the current United States President Barack Hussein Obama, along with his Whitehouse Chief of Staff, Valerie Jarrett, have secretly conspired to allow Islamic terror into the United States for the dual purpose of forming an Islamic North American Caliphate ... resulting in the forced execution of millions of American Christians and Jews ... and the destruction...

    Maybe, just maybe this picture of Jeb Bush, Rupert Murdoch & Valerie Jarrett will clear some things up for you... like why Fox News ordered a CODE RED on Donald Trump and why Fox is trashing conservatives 24/7? Also, why Jeb Bush is for Common Core, Open Borders and all the other Socialist ideas. Good old Jeb thinks America’s best days are ahead of us now that the Republican House and Senate have assured Planned Parenthood can continue to traffic in infant body parts and Obama’s amnesty and Obamacare have been funded. PLEASE MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY!

      The Barack Obama career tree is decorated with ornaments of failure. Most notable among the early disasters is Grove Parc. Grove Parc was a housing project in Obama's district in Chicago. Obama used it as a springboard for his political ambitions. He enmeshed himself with the slumlords Valerie Jarrett and Tony Rezko and subsequently Obama got campaign funding while Jarrett and Rezko got wealthy. The residents suffered for it. Back in 2012 I said this would be the blueprint for the Obama Presidency: Grove Parc was the blueprint for the Obama Presidency. It’s a shame that no one in...

He surrounds himself with Muslims…his actions and words confirm he is a Muslim…and NO church in America has any record of him ever having converted to Christianity. Now with that said it must be understood how this man has allowed our American government to be infiltrated by the enemy…and YES…Muslims at this point in time are indeed...
  • Secretary of State John Kerry demonstrates why Huma Abedin’s background mattered

    When folks like Andrew McCarthy articulated why our findings about then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s close adviser Huma Abedin were important, his camp was smeared as being discriminatory. His argument had nothing to do with discrimination or Islamophobia. It had everything to do with Abedin’s familial ties compromising her judgment and allegiances to the U.S. Constitution. Here we have an example that demonstrates this reality further and it comes via Kenneth Timmerman, who has picked up on the fact that the new Secretary of State – John Kerry – has a son-in-law with family still living in Iran. This...

    National Review ^ | 1/15/2015 | Jillian Kay Melchior
    Obama dispatched Valerie Jarrett in 2008 to woo the reverend. Near the end of 2007, Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett met with Al Sharpton in New York City and began to cement a relationship that would eventually make the inflammatory activist the president’s “go-to man” on race, according to multiple sources. The backdrop to the incipient Obama-Sharpton alliance was the then-senator’s 2008 presidential campaign, which still hadn’t locked away the black vote, and the political cross-currents created by two other controversial reverends, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright. That tentative relationship has now grown into a full-blown partnership that has vastly increased...

To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world. And what little we do know is highly uninformative and often contradictory.

    All around the country inquiring minds are asking: “Who is this president of ours, who has declared war on freedom of speech instead of on the Islamic terrorists who burned our embassy and killed our ambassador?” To find out I would highly recommend Dinesh D'Souza's film (while it’s still available for viewing in this country) 2016. Or you could read BO’s first autobiography, Dreams From My Father. He tells you in his own words: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully.” Friends practicing for their audition as “mainstream” advisors to the Preezy ... “The more...

    In Washington, bigwigs can misspeak and misstep a million times without drawing attention. And then there are the seemingly harmless moments that stick to a person like super glue: Joe Wilson barking “You lie!”; Jesse Jackson mumbling into a hot mic that he wants to castrate Barack Obama; Dan Quayle trying to spell things. Like coal crushed into diamonds by the pressure of a million eyeballs, such moments are forever. During an exclusive dinner hosted Monday by the Alfalfa Club, Obama adviser Valerie Jarret had just such a moment. And were it not for an irritated tipster, Jarret might have...

    Obama’s connections to less than reputable characters and groups like Goldman Sachs, the Chicago Climate Exchange, “Fannie and Freddie,” former Chicago Governor Rod Blagojevich, Franklin Raines, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, etc. (the list appears infinite) have placed Americans in the unfortunate position of having to question everything that the government says and does. This epiphany has forced the Central Illinois 9/12 project to investigate the suspiciously preferable treatment Obama and his cohorts have provided to the Chicago-based, community-based investment bank, Shorebank. According to the 9/12 group, Shorebank is “focused on domestic and foreign microfinancing, is heavily engaged...

    WHEN President Barack Obama’s secret service codename was revealed as Renegade and his wife Michelle’s as Renaissance, the names seemed perfect for a first couple who had come to Washington to shake things up. More than a year into the Obama administration, with healthcare yet to be reformed, Wall Street banks continuing to pay huge bonuses and Guantanamo Bay prison still open, that mood of hope has turned to disillusion. Obama’s policy of engagement has yielded no progress in the Middle East or Iran; the war in Afghanistan continues to exact a big toll in lives and dollars; while the...

    New study provides insight into 141+ years of political hijinks Cook County has been a "dark pool of political corruption" for more than a century, a new study by the University of Illinois at Chicago says. Nearly 150 employees, politicians and contractors in the nation's second-largest county have been convicted on corruption charges since 1957, according to a report released Thursday by the university and the Better Government Association (.pdf) The 33-page study gives a history of corruption, starting from 1869 when county commissioners were jailed for rigging a bid to paint City Hall. It also details hiring scandals, including...

    "Don't think we're not keeping score, brother." That's what President Barack Obama said to Rep. Peter DeFazio in a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus last week, according to the Associated Press. A few weeks ago, Mr. DeFazio voted against the administration's stimulus bill. The comment from Mr. Obama was a presidential rebuke and part of a new, hard-nosed push by the White House to pressure Congress to adopt the president's budget. He has mobilized outside groups and enlisted forces still in place from the Obama campaign. Senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett and her chief of staff, Michael Strautmanis,...

    The Daley Machine Goes National Michael Reagan Thursday, December 11, 2008 At the moment it seems clear that Barack Obama has had no direct involvement in the growing scandal involving Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, but nothing can remove the stench of Chicago politics that engulfs Obama thanks to his appointments of the Chicago Three. Let it be said at the outset -- the only way Barack Obama can separate himself from any hint of the sordid corruption that is the earmark of Chicago's Daley machine is to send the Chicago Three back to the political sewer from which they have...
