Jarrett: I´m not the shadow chief of staff
The Hill (Washington DC), by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/18/2013 11:25:24 AM

Valerie Jarrett denied being a “shadow chief of staff” to President Obama on Wednesday, insisting she never talks about work during her private time with the president and first lady. “I´m not the shadow chief of staff. I have very specific responsibilities,” Jarrett, a senior adviser to the president and a longtime family friend of the Obamas, said at a Politico breakfast. [WATCH VIDEO] Jarrett said that “people sometimes presume because I am a friend of the president and first lady” that she´s able to exert influence when the Obamas retire from the office to their residence. “There is this

"Shadow chief of staff"? Heck, no. She´s the President, and don´t you forget it. (You hear me, Barack?)

Maybe not, Val. But you are an idiot, and you have no business wielding the power you apparently do.

A denial is a confirmation.

Shadow President, more likely.

I´m thinking Congressman Issa and the other Congressional chairmen ought to subpoena her all the live-long day. Why bother with that Obama boy?

I expect quite a few books will be written once this vacuous haridan no longer has the ear of power. From what little leaks out of the inner circle of this administration VJ has made more than a few very bitter enemies. Over the next 3 years I expect she will not make anymore Friends.

She is feared right now because she can do so much damage (politics of personal destruction writ large). But her only claim to any kind of power outside the Chicago City Limits will evaporate once her meal ticket is banished back to the southside where he belongs.

After she becomes toothless I expect the daggers will come out.

Of course, Valerie Jarrett would never accept such a subordinate position as "shadow chief of staff". She is the designated controller of the Current Regime, put in place by the Iranians, to whom she owes first allegiance.

And isn´t the use of "shadow" a racist term?

I can´t believe anyone could underestimate this hag and the weight of her evil hand on the helm of Obama´s presidency. I don´t care what she says, how she says it, or how often she denies who and what she is. And the issues surrounding her have his nothing to do with smarts but with her Rasputin hold and how she uses her power and wields it at will. Like little Kim in North Korea. No one expects to see him on a MENSA list, but when he says "off with his head" to his Uncle someone starts sharpening the knife. Jarrett was born in Iran, was raised in an uber marxist family, has all the commie Obama marxist pals, and in general has very spooky connections. If what I´ve heard her say in the few interviews she "permits, she isn´t overly intelligent yet walks in the hallways with the "most high." She´s in every picture, at every event, in every issue reported without end, and is always seated next to Mooch or the Liar or inbetween. No one will take her on, no one will risk her wrath...on and on. She´s far more than chief of staff. And this nation needs to know what that is, when she was vetted, for what job, and exactly what are the specfic duties to which she refers.

Don´t forget this nasty little Pixie was a well-known big-time slumlord in Chicago. And now Obama´s choice for White House shadow chief of staff? A crook then and a crook now. Typical ´RAT. The ´RAT party is the party of criminals. Eventually they are all outed as criminals. They should all be in jail. Just for one example, ALgore, the ´RATS choice for Prez in 2000 is now a well-known liar and criminal. Do you know of any high-ranking DemocRAT who is not a known criminal?

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch.

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
