Valerie Jarrett: Israeli
strikes on civilians wrong

Politico, by Jon Prior

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 8/3/2014 4:41:11 PM

White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett says Israeli strikes near civilian havens in Gaza were indefensible. "This is why the cease-fire is so important," Jarrett said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS´ "Face the Nation." "It´s a devastating situation. Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel´s staunchest ally. But you also can´t condone the killing of all of these innocent children." President Barack Obama, she said, was concerned and frustrated by the ongoing violence despite efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to broker a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. "I think everyone involved is frustrated," Jarrett

Comments:
It seems to bother Barry´s brain, a/k/a Valerie "Prune-face" Jarrett that the terrorist´s cowardly tactic of hiding among innocents is not working like it used to.

But Valerie does not seem to care about the children murdered in Chicago. On a weekly basis.

What don´t ValJar and Stinky understand about using women and children as shields? Far fewer Palestinians will die if they wipe out Hamas now, rather than retreat and let Hamas re-arm and rebuild.

They should round up as many Hamas fighters as the can, herd them into a tunnel, then seal the tunnels. They ought to suffocate in 12 hours or so.

There was a photo on Twitter earlier of a Hamas fighter hanging small boys by the back of their shirts - on a fence outside a building in Gaza. The boys looked to be about 5 or 6 years old. "Cannon fodder" I guess.

And they are sending numerous illegals who are "fleeing violence in their own country" to the shooting gallery that is Chicago, #1. Wait til MS-13 starts lighting up the Chicago streets.

As forVJ´s opinion on the Middle East, I could care less what she thinks. She allies herself with the Muslims first and always.

I saw this segment. Bloomberg´s explanation of Israel´s predicament was excellent. Then she chimes in with her bleeding-heart comments. Viewers should have been reminded that she is Iranian and they are major contributors to terror organizations throughout the Middle East.

Like the Arabs in 1973 who were determined to fight the Israelis to the last Egyptian. Hamas and Valerie Jarrett are determined to fight them to the last Palestinian.

Val Jar´s appearance with the late Bob Schieffer is proof that Netanyahu´s warning to Obama "not to ever second guess me again" has frightened Lil Barry. Lil Barry had to send his surrogate "Mommie" out to tell that bad prime minister to leave him alone.

If only Val Jar could tell Benjamin Netanyahu´s parents that Benjamin has to leave her little boy alone. "Lil Barry doesn´t understand that Hamas is a terrorist organization. Ben has to show more patience until Lil Barry is able to pronounce jihadist, Hezbollah and Israel´s right to exist."

I never thought I´d see the day when King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia would be a better ally to Israel than our President. The King put the blame entirely on Hamas. He said this Friday -

“It is shameful and disgraceful that these terrorists are doing this in the name of religion, killing the people whose killing Allah has forbidden, and mutilating their bodies and feeling proud in publishing this.”

He´s talking about Hamas. No blame at all for Israel.

Her authority and Secret Service protection rests Solely with the Fraudulent POTUS.
Once he goes -she goes.

ValJar making stupid statements as there are more reports coming in as to how Hamas goes into civilian groups to fire its rockets. When Israel targets the rocket launch area the cowardly terrorists have scurried away and civilians are killed. If indeed they are killed by Israelis. Hamas has also misfired rockets into the Palestinian population and tried to blame it on Israel. Also, who reports these casualties? Hamas? Like they are honest reporters?

Like most double speak that comes out of this administration, they are NOT friends of Israel. For that matter, they are not friends of the US either.

Days are remembered when she was seldom seen in photo ops or news clips. The photo of pResident and his crew in the OO and one saw the women´s legs but she was stationed in the back so her face might not be seen. Her statements might be heard but it was usually not reported and attributed to ValJar, only the WH Perhaps when her secret meets with Iran were revealed it was also determined for her to become ´more involved´ with making his/her policy/thoughts publicly known. She, at last, was able to come out of the shadows. As with Bill & Hill´s two for the price of one. In this administration we put into office Val & the fairy princess. We truly have a shadow presidency. She had the power behind the scenes and now it seems to be in the public view.

TARGETING OBJECTS. The LOAC [Law of Armed Conflict] specifically describes objects that shall not be the targets of a direct attack. Reflecting the rule that military operations must be directed at military objectives, objects normally dedicated to peaceful purposes enjoy a general immunity from direct attack. Specific protection applies to medical units or establishments; transports of wounded and sick personnel; military and civilian hospital ships; safety zones established under the Geneva Conventions; and religious, cultural, and charitable buildings, monuments, and POW camps.

Jarrett always reminds me of the old SNL character " Pat ".
You could never figure out if " Pat " was a man or woman.
Jarrett was born in Shiraz , Iran where her parents worked.
She is fluent in Farsi and French.
Jarrett is often described as a mother figure to Obama.
Barry is obviously happy to let Mommy make all the decisions while he plays with Reggie, smokes and eats fast food.
And hides from Michelle.

MILWAUKEE — She can rouse a crowd as she did here this week, connect with women and drive turnout among African-American voters. Yet despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far. She has her reasons, Democrats say: Mrs. Obama hates to be away from her daughters. She loathes Washington’s toxic politics. She resents Republicans for their opposition to her husband’s agenda. But she also believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.

The resignation came less than a day after lawmakers from both parties assailed Ms. Pierson’s leadership and said they feared for the lives of the president and others in the protection of the agency. A 30-year veteran of the Secret Service, Ms. Pierson was supposed to have been the one to repair the agency’s reputation after scandals that raised questions about a culture that gave rise to incidents involving drinking and prostitution during overseas trips.

Thousands of Walruses Are

Nearly 35,000 walruses were discovered this month on a northwest Alaskan shore as result of being unable to find sea ice to rest upon, a problem aggravated by climate change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said. The unusually massive walrus gatherings were first spotted on Sept. 13 when NOAA conducted its annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, a spokeswoman told the Associated Press. The marine mammals use sea ice as diving platforms to hunt for food in shallow areas, or as resting points to avoid long, exhausting swims. While it is normal for sea ice to recede into

"We´ve had a lot of discussions among people I respect and trust about the future of this country, and we´re going to continue to have these discussions over the next two to five months," he said.

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

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

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

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

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.

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
