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

Newsbusters, by Cheri Jacobus

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

Is there anyone who doesn´t realize ValJar is in charge? Karl knows better.

Long ago, on these very threads, it was established that the Planet of the Apes look alike, Valjar, has been - and still is - in charge.

Doncha hate it when someone is six years late to the party?

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.

It´s shocking how this administration ´plays´ everyone and how the press falls for it. Can they not believe their eyes and ears or are they so far gone as real Americans that they are not willing to give up their ideology when they see it is collapsing right in front of them?

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.

"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.

Eight Russian aircraft and refueling tankers were intercepted by U.S. and Canadian fighter jets off the coast of Alaska this week, officials said. Maj. Beth Smith, a spokeswoman with the North American Aerospace Defense Command, known as NORAD, said the Russian craft were likely involved in "training exercises" when they were noticed on the night of Sept. 17 and the morning of Sept. 18. The craft did not enter United States or Canadian airspace, but were located in an Air Defense Identification Zone that sits roughly 200 miles from the Alaskan coast, Smith said.

Roberts told an audience at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Law that the partisan atmosphere in Washington would make it unlikely for justices such as Antonin Scalia, widely viewed as a conservative, or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is seen as liberal, to win confirmation today. He pointed to the most recent U.S. Senate confirmation of Justice Elena Kagan in 2010, which fell largely on party lines. Roberts said

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said. Obama, who reiterated the fact

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

(Video)Friday during the White House press briefing, National Security Advisor Susan Rice abruptly left in the middle of a question after confusing reporters with her announcement President Barack Obama was going ahead with air strikes in Syria. When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Great Recession showed that a large number of American families are "extraordinarily vulnerable" to financial setbacks because they have few assets to fall back on, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Thursday Yellen said a Fed survey found that an unexpected expense of just $400 would force the majority of American families to borrow money, sell something or simply not pay.
