ABC´s Jon Karl Wonders: Who´s
In Charge of Obama´s White House?

Newsbusters, by Cheri Jacobus

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 10:33:42 PM

So just who is in charge in Barack Obama´s White House? ABC´s Jonathan Karl on Tuesday asked White House press secretary why the letter from the White House to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle. The president´s spokesman, when asked why the letter was from Jarrett rather than the President, said "Valerie spends a

Obama didn´t sign it because he didn´t want HIS OWN signature on the letter---some part isn´t consistent with his stated public policy. He´s just using VJ to distance himself from any political blowback. Any questions: direct them to Jarrett, not Obama. He didn´t say anything and besides, didn´t know about it.

Press Secretary Josh Earnest claimed that ...the White House claims no responsibility or accountability, for the tweets.

Of course not. How silly to believe the White House claims responsibility. For anything.

However, he did not offer any explanation as to why an "independent" organization can tweet in Barack Obama´s name or how this can occur without input and permission from the president´s political team....

It has long been known that Obama doesn´t work. He plays. Others do the work. We have speculated who those people might be and are pretty certain we know: Everything is coming up Valerie. Well, maybe not everything, seeing as how we have liars and Marxists running almost every Agency in the government. Lois Lerner and other criminal elements like Koskinen and apologists run this government.

The sixties radicals who now wear ties and suits are running this government. But do not make the ridiculous error that Obama himself runs anything except away from responsibility. That is why he always blames Republicans and George Bush for everything he screws up.

No, no, this White House is Valerie´s and Michelle´s palace balcony.

While many journalists have been disgusting true believers in obama, I think Jonathan Karl is a good journalist who has just been way too credulous about the regime and its lies. The past few months he seems to have woken up. Now awake I think he sees a whole lot of disturbing activity at the WH, like... Who´s in charge indeed, Jon?

The response? The president does not write, nor does he read his own tweets.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn´t there.
He wasn´t there again today,
I wish, I wish he´d go away...

When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn´t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don´t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don´t slam the door...

Last night I saw upon the stair,
A little man who wasn´t there,
He wasn´t there again today
Oh, how I wish he´d go away...

The further we get down this road of destruction of our democracy... the more I am convinced this man never really thought he would have to make tough decisions or get involved with anything requiring actual work. He wants to BE the president, and the job is for others to do.

I mean if a tweet can be put online under his twitter account by a national woman´s organization, and he isn´t aware of it (which I´m not at all surprised), what makes us think he does anything until someone else tells him to. Well, but golf and fly around the country.

Obama is not the first U.S. President who has brought questionable advisors with him to the WH. Presumed puppet master George Soros may have taken a page out of the history playbook he understands best with his use of ValJar as Obama´s chief advisor.

Old Georgie probably has studied the FDR years and his administration. ValJar is Obama´s Harry Hopkins. There is a fair amount of controversy about the HH role in the WH. There are some who say HH was a Soviet spy.

The 1999 publication of the book The Sword and The Shield by Soviet KGB archivist, Vasili Mitrokhin, was based on notes and materials from classified KGB files Mitrokhin copied from 1972 until his retirement in 1984. Supposedly the book provides "new evidence" that Harry Hopkins was a Soviet spy. The book is an exposé of the KGB and its operations in the U.S. and Europe. Mitrokhin defected in 1992 and his materials were later spirited out of Moscow by British agents.

While I don´t necessarily believe the HH accusation, I do believe the worst about ValJar. I suspect her path must have crossed with Bill Ayers´ path at the University of Michigan, where ValJar earned her JD law degree.

Look no further than Valerie Jarrett´s Iranian roots. Make the connection to the irrational Muslim mindset that justifies any behavior no matter how brutal or violent as long as it accomplishes their goals. She has an agenda that Obama fully embraces. They are on course to destroy the greatest democracy the world has every known to allow the rise of the Islamic caliphate. The Middle East is on fire due to their policies. Israel is being bombarded daily by seventh century Neanderthals who want to wipe it from the face of the earth. Obama and ValJar are shaking their fists in the face of God by so weakening this nation politically, culturally, and militarily that we won´t or can´t come to Israel´s aid. This is bigger than politics. It is bigger than pure ambition. This is a direct act against God and His people. We are not above experiencing God´s wrath and Obama and his Babylonian consigliere just may sentence us to it. (I acknowledge my perspective is from a Biblical prospective and understand that many may not agree.) Lastly, the Bible clearly states that Israel will stand alone against her enemies. Therefore, her biggest supporter must be made ineffective and unable or unwilling to give her aid and support. Troubling times.

BO IS a community organizer. He only knows how to complain and rabble rouse. He has NO ability to lead people in a positive, constructive direction. He thinks he can simply demand and things will happen. That is his concept of leadership.

To some extent, the massive federal bureaucracy allows him to do that. Agencies of the federal government are not going to challenge the president´s orders. For some bizarre reason the Congress doesn´t seem to have standing to challenge a president that is breaking and bending laws.

Of course his inner circle is going to wield power in his name, especially since he is so incompetent and disengaged.

History will not be kind to BO.

fta:
"Valerie spends a lot of time maintaining relationships with governors around the country" on behalf of the President.

Correction: Valerie spends a lot of time with her arm up Obama´s, uhm, torso, and her hand in his mouth.

I was on national news two weeks ago because I attended a local town hall mtg & asked Qs about our earthquakes. NBC Nightly w/Brian Williams & CBS Morning. Getting there half an hour early, I found myself seated with two liberal women in front of me & two liberal (nurses) next to me. They were middle aged like me. The conversation was very depressing. One in front said: I used to be a Republican until I realized Republicans care about corporations & Democrats care about people. The one next to me later said: the only reason Republicans don´t like Obama is because he´s black. I laughed & shook my head. After one attempt, I realized it was hopeless to change their minds about conservatives in 20 minutes. So, I educated them about the Tea Party. They had no idea there are minorities & Democrats in it. But the ignorance, guys, is stunning. Our MSM has done a masterful job.

I remember back before the election there were articles on Valerie and her father, both members of the local Communist Party known as the New Party. Party members were backing Obama when he ran for State Senator.

There were backgrounds on both of them. Now she is in the White House. I was shocked to learn she has her own Secret Service Protection Team. Since when do Advisors get SS Protection? Who authorized that?

"We The People" better stop the complacency, get off their lazies, get out from behind their computers and hit the "streets", so to speak. If they don´t then they should stop whining about the country going to hades in a hand basket because they are carrying it.

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production.

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

Cover-up of Nepotism Report
Latest Black Eye for California Senate

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

Lena Dunham: I Was Raped By
a ´Campus Republican´ In 2008

47 replie(s)
Breitbart Big Hollywood, by John Nolte    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/3/2014 8:29:26 PM     Post Reply
In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.

Thursday while speaking at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, President Barack Obama giggled and raised his arms as he mocked the Fox News Channel for it´s reporting on ObamaCare. Obama said, "There is a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about ObamaCare, cause while good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News it turns out its working pretty well in the real world."
