Is the Real Problem Valerie Jarrett and a Shadow White House?

The Sunday news shows were all a buzz over Obama’s flip flop on Syria, suddenly deciding to seek Congressional approval for an attack on Syrian President Assad. He was being accused of doing damage to our country’s credibility overseas. Perhaps this is so. When one makes threats about red lines and doesn’t follow through, one appears cowardly or weak.

But, because the President makes a stupid threat, does that mean that the country needs to embark on a stupid attack simply to protect his reputation or political credibility? Strictly speaking, the U.S. doesn’t have a dog in this fight. Though the use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians is despicable, it does not necessarily require the U.S. to be the world policeman if it is not in our national interest.

Assad has already murdered 100,000 people. Why does the use of chemical weapons suddenly demand a response? Both sides in the Syrian struggle hate us. Attacking Assad will assist Al Qaeda. Of course, Obama has a history of assisting the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. In fact, there is a mountain of evidence that the Obama regime was funneling weapons to Al Qaeda in Syria through Benghazi.

Politicians and pundits alike today are scratching their heads, wondering how the President could be so inept. This reaction always surprises me. As I have written here in the past, perhaps Obama is not inept. Perhaps he is motivated by a desire to reduce America down to the level of lesser countries. I’m not the first to suspect this. Aaron Klein documents the same theses in his book The Manchurian President as does Dinesh D’Souza in the movie Obama’s America: 2016. (What happened to Dinesh? He seems to have disappeared.) There is a sufficient amount of evidence for this to be a credible theory, yet politicians and pundits “in the know” are reluctant to voice it. Is it too radical to believe? It’s much easier to blame the many failures of his policies, both foreign and domestic, on ineptitude. But, if his objective is to diminish American influence abroad, didn’t he just score a huge success this week?

Perhaps the riddle to the puzzle might lie in who is really running the country while Obama is continually touring the country campaigning or vacationing. She is the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement. Valerie Jarrett controls access to the president. But she has zero experience in foreign or domestic policy.

Jarrett helped recruit the self-identified communist Van Jones (as green jobs czar), and the die-hard advocate of wealth redistribution Cass Sunstein (as regulatory czar). Jarrett is a vindictive grudge-holder as revealed by her comments leaked prior to the 2012 election where she vowed revenge on Obama’s political opponents. According to Richard Miniter’s recent book, Leading from Behind: “At the urging of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving” the mission for May 2, 2011.

Valerie Jarrett hails from the cesspool of Chicago politics. Her parents were Marxist radicals with ties to Bill Ayers family. They founded the Erikson Institute which was awarded funds in 1995 by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge founded by Bill Ayers; Obama was hired in 1995 as the group’s first chairman. In 2009, Erickson was awarded almost $5 million from the stimulus program.

She was a part of Mayor Richard Daley’s administration. Karin McQuillan reported in American Thinker, “Jarrett was known for her corruption and incompetence.  Daley finally had to fire her after a scandal erupted over her role in misuse of public funds in the city’s substandard public housing …. When Valerie Jarrett hired Michelle to work for Daley and befriended her, the Obamas gained access to the exclusive world of upper-class black Chicago politics.

So, whether it’s Valerie or Barrack, we have two people with similar motivations and experience levels. If they really wanted to do what is best for America, then they must be idiots. On the other hand, if they want to diminish this country, they’re doing a pretty good job.

    I think Jarrett was the one supposedly in control when things happened in Benghazi. Supposedly Obama was not to be seen. Of course, Jarrett should not be in control of anything and if the Military, CIA or others took orders from her, then all of them should be removed.

      I think you are correct. She has been our de facto President since the beginning. Evidently most Americans don’t care, little to nothing has been done to impeach Owebama !

    I have always thought Obama’s objective was to destroy America. He couldn’t be more successful at doing this. He has gone overseas and denigrated our country. He has done more to set race relations back 50 years than anyone else could do. He has made us a laughing stock all around the world, and he has turned his back on our ally. Israel.. He has lied to the American people so many times it would be impossible to count. He is responsible for the death of the four Americans in Benghazi and then told a big whopper about what happened. He, and Joe Biden, are responsible for the deaths of the Navy Seals who were in an old helicopter going into enemy territory without air support. He is responsible for the huge 16+ trillion dollar debt this country is in and yet he keeps on spending. His pouring money into “green energy” companies that he should have known were going bankrupt was dispicable. He is doing his best to disarm the citizens of this country so they can’t fight back if it comes to the government trying to take over and him becoming a dictator. I could go on and on, but it really isn’t necessary; people who have their eyes open can see all of this for themselves. The rest are so enamored of him that they can’t see what is happening.

    Well Mr. David, I didn’t realize you were in Syria to witness the murder of 100 thousand people by Assad. Did you bother to checkout the Al Qaeda and Al Nusra guys to see how many they have murdered??? Don’t Christians and Aliwites count??? You folks always try to blame the existing regime for all the bad stuff that happens. If you are a witness to mass murder sir then you should let somebody know. For instances the last chem attack they tried to blame on Assad was actually carried out by the freaking Al Nusra Front on Assad troops. This was even proved by the UN inspectors. Just because MSNBC, Kerry, and Obama trash talk doesn’t mean it’s true. Take everything you read and hear coming out of the Whitehouse and the middle east with a grain of salt there stud. Got it??? Hope so. Oh Wow Man, if it’s on the internet it must be true.

    • DrSique

      Wow, Snuffy, maybe you need a dose of your own medicine. After chastising someone for not being an eye witness to chemical attacks, you state with certainty that it was Al Nusra attacking government troops. Then, you warn against believing our own government while suggesting that there is definitive proof from the UN. The UN, for Gods’ sake. Who the hell believes anything that comes from that den of self serving pit vipers??? The fact is, we don’t have all the facts and should, therefore, proceed with caution. Especially with the current administration and their RINO counterparts.

    I find it hard to believe that his flip flopping about Syria is doing much harm to the US credibility overseas compared to our Embassy being attacked and our Ambassador killed with no response but a cover up from the US.

    Obama doesn’t have the brains to be President. He’s a big, white smile, nose in the air and arrogant mouthpiece. He is a great liar, that is all he brings to the table. Jarrett is a Communist, like Obama, and she and her cohorts Obama has installed throughout the government are running America and their goal is the total destruction of America. Then, it can be rebuilt into a mindless, Communist regime like the “dear leaders”.
    McCain and Graham are such war mongers they are losing sight of Obama’s goals. They just want war.

    Al-Qaeda is an avowed enemy of the U.S., they have sworn to destroy this nation and also Israel. Any American aiding and abetting this group of terrorists is a traitor and should be prosecuted for this crime. That includes Obama and any and all other members of his administration or government agencies who go along with this heinous scheme!!

    The latest info tells us that the rebels accidentally killed their own people. It has also been pointed out that Obama and his brother are also members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Is it any wonder that he is supporting them by bombing Syria?

    Syria is the Benghazi Massacre Part II.
    It’s an extension of the same type of thinking, which has nothing to do with protecting and defending America and Americans and everything to do with WHO Obama is as a person and WHAT Obama wants — which is unrestrained power OVER people at home AND around the WORLD, anyone who does or may “threaten” HIS way of looking at and characterizing the world.
    The cannibal / killers in Syria who eat the hearts of their enemies and hate America are, again, aided and abetted by Obama — who uses American taxpayers money to give them weapons, as well as by obama’s white house and congressional cronies, and a media who “parrots” Obama and 99% of the time fails to do their due diligence.
    I’m sick of the “media”, mainstream or otherwise, that presents its writers opinions are “news” or “reporting”.
    Their “coverage” of overexposed Obama’s manipulations of social and economic events is disgusting and continues to expand the narcissism and to expand the territories where he promotes dissension, division and destruction.
