VALERIE JARRETT

January 21, 2014

Hiding in the wings of this administration is more than a radical Muslim contingent and more than 1960s radicals of American heritage. Those two factions alone constitute more “enemy working together” than can be seen in the current or past two congresses. But just who is the coordinator of the agenda? Who is the puppeteer behind the marionette we see standing tall before the podium and Teleprompters? Just who is the man behind the man? Perhaps it is a woman.

References that the “White House was informed” continue yet the President maintains that he learned of – insert today’s scandal here – from the morning paper, or from a news broadcast, or some right wing talk show, just like you. So, just how is the White House informed and who is the information receptor? The name Valerie Jarrett comes up as not just a, but the key influential individual with direct Oval office contact.

Jarrett is the lasting player of the administration. Long gone are the friends and other close advisors to the President. Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod didn’t last long. It is speculated that they both questioned and disagreed with Jarrett’s influence. One has to question if even Obama had an optional input regarding their dismissal. If there is a puppet master, the handler of the long and short strings must be very close to the marionette. In policy decisions, Valerie Jarrett seems to be in command.

As I’ve commented many times before, when Obama reads to an audience from the Teleprompter, his face often reveals that even he is questioning the words emitting from his lips. He looks as if he cannot believe anybody is foolish enough to believe the oratory. Sometimes a pause gives rise to the notion that he wonders how to speak the written words in front of him with a straight face. Positive reaction from the audience encourages yet amazes even him.

We may now know how it is that Obama has time for golf during every crisis. It is his pause time while the speech writer and true policy maker prepares how best to express authority and deflect responsibility. The greater the crisis, the less time Valerie has while the President shoots another eighteen. Perhaps that’s why it takes him so long on the course, any course. Maybe the plan is to get him out of the way, so that he won’t interfere with important decisions.

Perhaps this is why Obama becomes so vicious and vindictive when he doesn’t get “his” way. He is the just front man, the egg and tomato catcher, while someone else is running the country. It has got to be tough for someone with such thin skin. It’s just not fair that some people want to hold him accountable for his policies when the inner circle derides and overwrites his input before scripting the Teleprompters.

Jarrett and her handlers probably refer to Obama as the useful tool of the administration, though he undoubtedly agrees with the ultimate goal of destroying the country. A tool, by itself, is incapable of making anything happen. It must be manipulated by some one who knows how to read and implement the blueprint to be effective.

As good-looking as he is, as great an orator as he is, Obama is nothing more than a puppet in the play. His part in governing might be favorably compared to that of an award winning actor who had no input regarding the writing of the script or the directing or production of a movie in which he participates. Yet, the ignorant urban folk continue flocking to the theater believing he wants to give them what they want – free popcorn. They, then, accept his excuses for the theater being out of popcorn.

Meanwhile he and his troupe continue to expand the design of America’s demise, keeping the easily beguiled uninformed and swooning. Yes, Valerie continues to remain high above the stage, out of sight behind the curtains on the catwalk. Not seen, but being in control allows her the opportunity to oversee all without getting stage dust on her hands. Even if he wanted to, he cannot exist without her. Even Michelle cannot disencumber her from Barry’s life. Valerie Jarrett is the one we should fear.

GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATIONS

January 20, 2012

General Motors Chairman and CEO, Dan Akerson, has agreed to meet with the Congressional panel that is set to investigate the government’s investigation into fire risks in the Chevrolet Volt.  That’s right the government is investigating a government investigation into a company that is 61% owned by the government. 

I’m certain it will be an arm’s length investigation investigation.  The arm used may be a short-arm, but that’s what we’ve been getting since January 21, 2009.

And, as an extra added bonus, the man testifying before the committee was installed as the CEO of General Motors by the very same government that is investigating the investigation of the green project into which billions of government monies were invested.

Here’s the lineage of inbred progress for his takeover.  In July 2009, shortly after Obama became President, Akerson, as a representative of the U.S. Treasury under the tax challenged Timothy Geithner, was appointed to the board of directors of GM.  Akerson’s experience qualifying him for the position was in the communications industry. He was, however, a close friend and large donor to Obama.  In 2010, he became CEO when Ed Whitaker was summarily dismissed by the primary stock holder (the U.S. government) and he assumed the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors early last year.

Obama wants to make every aspect of every industry a monochromatic green, at any cost.  He refuses to allow an estimated 22,000 people employment on the Keystone XL project.  Instead, he is willing to allow those jobs and that petroleum and  much needed by-products to be shipped to China for refining and sale.  He has “invested” hundreds of billions (if not untold trillions) of borrowed American taxpayer dollars in solar companies that have failed miserably after receiving the money.  He “invested” our dollars in Finland with (Fisker Automotive), a company making an all electric automobile that only 2% of the American public can afford to purchase.  At least at this point, Fisker seems to be a viable company.

I, for one, am looking forward to hearing the forthright testimony of Mr. Akerson.  I’m sure we’ll find out that the blazing Volts were a product of faulty wiring schematics produced by the G.W. Bush administration simply to make Obama look bad.

There will be no dancing around the truth like with A.G. Eric Holder, Rahm Emanuel, Janet Napolitano or Solyndra’s CEO Brian Harrison or CFO Bill Stover when they appear before Congress.

Any questions why I call this Bizarro World, USA?

MORE CHICAGO POLITICS AT THE WHITE HOUSE

White House Adds New Position to Deal with Unfavorable Online Media

By Chris O’Shea on May 23, 2011 2:32 PM

“The White House has named Jesse Lee to a new position within its communications department titled Director of Progressive Media & Online Response. According to The Huffington Post, Lee will essentially be responsible for building up Obama’s online presence as he prepares for his reelection bid, and squashing any negative stories:

The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has usually been outsourced to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), if not done on an ad-hoc basis by administration officials.  And it signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive defense of the president and his policies as his re-election campaign gears up.”

I’m not real sure, but I have always been under the impression that politicians could not use a taxpayer paid office or taxpayer paid dollars to campaign.  Isn’t this exactly that?  It’s bad enough that our elected elite don’t work while they are applying for or interviewing for new or continued employment.  How long would your boss continue to pay you to research, apply and interview for a job with another company using his desk, phone, mail and computer?  Wouldn’t he / she be expecting you to do the job for which you were hired and receiving pay?

He created a position to do the campaigning and coercing the media to run favorable items and articles about him and that position is being paid out of my tax dollars.  He’s not only irritating the hell out of me by taking more and more of my money, now he’s using some of my own money to get re-elected and continue the outrage.

Obama just pee-pee whipped the Boston Herald for not promoting him.  Now he has hired a Czar to see to it that no unfavorable articles are written about him.  Can you say “1984”?

Some people still wonder why I call it Bizarro World, USA.

COMING TO AMERICA

December 20, 2010

By FABIOLA SANCHEZ, Associated Press Fabiola Sanchez, Associated Press – Tue Dec 14, 5:10 pm ET

CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday asked congress to grant him special powers to enact laws by decree for one year, just before a new legislature takes office with a larger contingent of opposition lawmakers.

CARACAS, Dec 17 (Reuters) – Venezuela’s parliament gave President Hugo Chavez decree powers for 18 months on Friday, outraging opposition parties that accused him of turning South America’s biggest oil producer into a dictatorship.

Hugo managed to co-opt his friendly Unified Socialist Party dominated National Assembly before the outgoing  majority loses parliamentary seats.  The newly elected parliamentary members are expected to be far less accommodating.

Obama doesn’t bother to ask congress for permission.  He simply waits until they are in recess to make Czar and other cabinet appointments, granting them special powers to carry out his desires.  He has not requested, and will not request, permission to “decree”.  He needs not do so because the Constitution of the United States of America grants the president certain executive powers.  This commission was originally limited to the executive staff and not meant to skirt the congress.  Article I, section 1, of the Constitution reads:  All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives. Article II, section 2, allows:  The President, shall have power to fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate, by granting commissions which shall expire at the end of their next session.

Immediate case in point:  Obama has nominated Andrew Traver (described by some to be an “anti-gun zealot”) to head the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives).  As Chief of the ATF, Traver would have the opportunity to nullify the Second Amendment, just one of at least ten civil rights in which he and the president do not believe.  Traver is expected to take over during the congressional Christmas recess.

Recess appointments are not unique to President Obama.  Many presidents have appointed cabinet members and department heads with questionable congressional confirmability during congressional recesses.  Obama, however, is abusing the authority; making the appointment of radicals and insurrectionists while congress and the public sleeps a major part of his legacy.  Rather than have his personal favorites and Chicago cronies face tough hearings that could reveal their true thoughts and beliefs to the American people and our representatives, he chooses abuse of the warrant.

The 111th Congress has shown a propensity to pass bills that none have read or understand and hold meetings behind locked doors, restricting the minority party from participating in the legislative process.  They have also used every bit of power and authority granted them and perhaps a bit more.  They have underhandedly forced through legislation that is at best questionable under the Constitution and at worst requiring radical re-interpretations of the founding document to make even portions of their bills appear legal.

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez defended plans for a law that would impose broadcast-type regulations on the Internet, saying Sunday that his government should protect citizens against online crimes.

Chavez’s congressional allies are considering extending the “Social Responsibility Law” for broadcast media to the Internet, banning messages that “disrespect public authorities,” “incite or promote hatred” or crimes, or are aimed at creating “anxiety” in the population.

WSJ – By ROBERT M. MCDOWELL DECEMBER 20, 2010

Tomorrow morning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will mark the winter solstice by taking an unprecedented step to expand government’s reach into the Internet by attempting to regulate its inner workings. In doing so, the agency will circumvent Congress and disregard a recent court ruling.

Certainly, whether a person is paying attention or has their head stuck in the sand, it is obvious that our government is paralleling self-serving dictatorships  and usurping the freedoms granted us by the founders and specifically documented in the Bill of Rights.  “We the People” must wake up and bridle our government to save our republic and keep the American elite from outdistancing the other socialist leaders and dictators of the globe.

CZAR THIS!

July 17, 2010

Affirmative action worked so well in the 60s and 70s that Obummer is trying to reinstitute it to harm minorities once again.  The latest financial regulations package to pass the House of Representatives will create new and improved Czars to oversee the women and minority hiring in federal financial regulatory agencies.

Expanding government is our president’s ultimate goal.  He wants to increase government to the point where every citizen is beholden to The Empire.  The latest bloating is to include another new bureaucracy called the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.

In an article by CNSNews.com, “the new agency would also be responsible for making sure that each of the major federal financial regulators is hiring enough minorities and women, and contracting with enough minority-owned and women-owned businesses”.  Competence or competitiveness has no bearing on the application standards.

And, it only gets better!

Each individual diversity czar is responsible for defining exactly how many minorities, women, and minority-owned and women-owned businesses are satisfactory.  Each agency shall establish an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion that shall be responsible for all matters of the agency relating to diversity in management.  In fact, each new diversity chief will be responsible for developing quota-like guidelines proscribing the ethnic and gender makeup of each regulator’s workforce, including upper management.

The Peter Principle no longer applies.

With a little help from the current administration, women and minorities no longer have to achieve their own level of incompetence through back-biting and butt kissing.  They will have the opportunity to simply apply and be incompetent from the get-go.  Just like the early years of affirmative action, qualifications mean little.  Race, gender and perhaps diverse sexual preferences will have precedence over knowledge, experience and ability.  Our president was elected to the White House because many in the country felt it was time for a black man to be president.  He had and has no qualifications for the position other than reading a teleprompter well.  That hasn’t worked out well for the country so far so why not increase the number of incompetents throughout government.  Now it looks like the government may be foisting the same incompetence upon what little private enterprise remains, as well.

Those of you who were around when affirmative action was in its heyday will recall that academically unqualified students attending colleges caused the grading curve to take a downward spiral.  Graduates left school with excellent grades but with insufficient education to get and retain jobs in their major field.  They were not competitive in the workforce.  Affirmative action then came to employers.  Employers had quotas to fill.  They hired women, blacks, Asians and Hispanics proportionate to total employees and it was very difficult to fire those who could not do the job.  When an incompetent employee was terminated, they would often scream racism, bigot or misogynist.  It was then up to the employer to overcome the tag.  Even when the ineffective person was replaced by another person of like gender, color, age or race, it sometimes cost the employer thousands of dollars in legal defense to win an unwarranted lawsuit.
