If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time you’re familiar with Valerie Jarrett. But some of you are new, and may not be aware that your president is just a puppet of another Chicago Machine politician. Meet Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s brain.
She receives more protection than our Libyan ambassador, calls the president by his first name, dines and vacations with the First Family and had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden.
Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House senior adviser and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett reportedly had a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
“Jarrett seems to have a 24-hour, around-the-clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said in an interview recently with Breitbart news. If Stevens had a similar escort, he’d probably be alive today.
Such protection isn’t usually available to senior advisers, but Jarrett is no ordinary adviser.
She almost always seems to be near the president and first lady, and her name keeps popping up at key moments, indicating the power and influence she wields.
Who elected this woman? No wonder Obama doesn’t want to do any serious interviews. Every time he appears without a teleprompter he botches things. No doubt it’s because Valerie isn’t there to hold his hand and whisper in his ear. If not for the media covering for him he’d be down 20 points in the polls. Heck, for all we know, he already is and they just don’t want us to know it.
Valerie is the real president, and Obama is just a figurehead. Is that “change we can believe in?” Oh yeah, that slogan is so 2008.
