    It’s not like Jarrett, a mobbed-up Red diaper baby, really needs the money, especially now that she’s shacked up with Barry on Embassy Row President Obama’s longtime Chicagoland gal pal Valerie Jarrett threw a temper tantrum when the angry little people of flyover country demanded she give up a $30,000 speaking fee from a cash-strapped government-run institution of higher learning.* (Okay, I made up the temper tantrum but for all we know it could have happened.) According to Politico, the scheming Iranian-born fixer from the land of Al Capone and Saul Alinsky, “has ended up in the middle of a...

    It’s now public on Monday: Jarrett, who has homes in Washington and Chicago, is working with the Chicago-based Obama Foundation in an advisory capacity. The foundation now has a branch office up and running in Washington — in the same building where former President Barack Obama has his official government post-presidential office. Jarrett, I am told from one of her advisers, “will work with President Obama and the foundation leadership, including Chairman Martin Nesbitt and Chief Executive Officer David Simas, to help support the foundation team’s work as it develops the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park on the South...

    Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation's capital - just two miles away from the White House - into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump. Obama's goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment. And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends....

    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...

    You might think that the Obama administration would be gracious on its way out the door. Fuggedaboutit. Valerie Jarrett—asked by Greta Van Susteren during her inaugural MSNBC show this evening—what was her biggest surprise during her eight years in the White House, gave a nasty, partisan response. Said the senior adviser to President Obama: “what surprised me was the willingness of the Republicans in congress to put their short-term political interests ahead of what’s good for the country . . . I thought they would come to the table and really try to work with us to focus on what...

    Since Obama has raised the alarm about alleged Russian espionage activity, it’s appropriate to shine a spotlight on his own administration’s connections to Soviet-era spy rings and terrorist networks. Obama and two of his key advisors, Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, were raised by families with members who are known either to have been in contact with Soviet agents or to have belonged to the Communist Party (CP) at a time when the CP was controlled by the Soviet Union. Associates of Obama’s campaign team and Jarrett’s family interacted with agents linked to the famous pair of spy rings known...

    Scandal, what scandal? President Obama has been squeaky clean, according to his closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett. “The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself,” Jarrett said in an interview broadcast on CNN Sunday.

    Wednesday at Politico‘s “Women Rule” event, senior adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett said the reactions at the White House to President-elect Donald Trump‘s victory were “like a punch in the stomach” and “soul-crushing.” Jarrett said, “We were surprised by the outcome of the election. It kind of was like a — I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say. Soul-crushing might be another description. But that’s the democracy that we have.

    In a last-minute effort to save Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, Barack Obama’s chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has urged the president to fire FBI Director James Comey, according to a source close to Jarrett. Obama and Jarrett are furious with Comey for reopening the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s emails just 11 days before the presidential election. They blame Comey for Hillary’s alarming slide in the polls. “Valerie argued that Comey was interfering deliberately in the election process and had to be stopped,” the source said. “The president said he was worried about the consequences of taking such an...

    uly 30, 2016 Valerie Jarrett was our First Female President By Daniel John Sobieski Hillary Clinton has become the first female nominated for President of the United States but, should she win the election, she will not be the first female to occupy and control the Oval Office (insert Monica Lewinsky joke here). That honor arguably goes to Valerie Jarrett, currently Senior Adviser to President Obama. Jarrett, born in Iran to American parents, has been with the Obamas since her days as Deputy Chief of Staff in the office of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, the elder. She hired Michelle Obama,...

    “I’ve had a full classified briefing” from military officials, Forbes told the Free Beacon. “It could be as long as a year before we actually get that released.” Details of the abduction are likely to start an uproar in the nation and call into question the Obama administration’s handling of the incident, which many experts say violated international and maritime law. “I think that when the details actually come out, most Americans are going to be kind of taken aback by the entire incident, both how Iran handled it and how we handled it,” Forbes disclosed. “I think that’s going...

    USA Transnational Report ^ | April 3, 2016 | Wallace Bruschweiler & William Palumbo
    This past week, to our astonishment, we learned that the Obama administration is seriously considering further concessions to Iran, and allowing U.S. dollars to be used to facilitate trade with the terrorist-supporting regime. Behind this latest concession – behind every action having to do with Iran, and for that matter most other actions of this so-called “Presidency” – we observe the power of a “consigliere,” in name Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett is the Iranian-born “Senior Advisor” to Barack Hussein Obama, but her true influence is akin to a “consigliere.” Just what is a consigliere (plural: consiglieri)? From the Latin “counselor,” a...

    Chicago is known for its L-train. But it's the gravy train that White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett prefers to ride. In addition to the $173,922 Jarrett earns per annum as President Obama's senior adviser, she is also paid an annual pension of $35,660 for the eight years she served as chairman of the Chicago Transit Authority, according to a Chicago Sun Times investigation. Jarrett was appointed to chairman of the agency - a part-time position - in 1995 by then-mayor Richard Daley, whose brother, William Daley, served as Obama's chief of staff. Jarrett served as the former mayor's deputy...

"I have friends that are in the FBI and they tell me they're ready to indict," DeLay said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

    In an exclusive interview, Chuck Hagel said the Obama administration micromanaged the Pentagon, stabbed him in the back on the way out -- and still has no strategy for fixing Syria. Jet-lagged from a long overseas trip, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had just sat down with his wife for a quiet dinner at an upscale Italian restaurant in northern Virginia when his phone rang. It was the White House on the line. President Barack Obama wanted to speak with him. It was Aug. 30, 2013, and the U.S. military was poised for war. Obama had publicly warned Syrian strongman...

    November 20, 2015 Jarrett: Obama Not 'Lame Duck,' 'Really Big Things' Coming Nicholas Ballasy White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said criminal justice reform that reduces the prison population would make America safer. Jarrett also said President Obama is focused on tackling the issue along with Congress and is not a "lame duck." Obama has directed federal agencies to "ban the box," which prohibits them from asking about an applicant's criminal history. Jarrett said Obama wants Congress to do the same for federal contractors as well, which requires congressional action. In addition, the Justice Department has decided to release about...
