The Obama WhispererThe New Republic ^ | 9 Nov 2014 | Noam ScheiberPosted on 11/10/2014, 8:56:52 AM by oblomovEven at this late date in the Obama presidency, there is no surer way to elicit paranoid whispers or armchair psychoanalysis from Democrats than to mention the name Valerie Jarrett. Party operatives, administration officials—they are shocked by her sheer longevity and marvel at her influence. When I asked a longtime source who left the Obama White House years ago for his impressions of Jarrett, he confessed that he was too fearful to speak with me, even off the record.This is not as irrational as it sounds. Obama has said he consults Jarrett on every major decision, something current and former aides corroborate. “Her role since she has been at the White House is one of the broadest and most expansive roles that I think has ever existed in the West Wing,” says Anita Dunn, Obama’s former communications director. Broader, even, than the role of running the West Wing. This summer, the call to send Attorney General Eric Holder on a risky visit to Ferguson, Missouri, was made by exactly three people: Holder himself, the president, and Jarrett, who were vacationing together on Martha’s Vineyard. When I asked Holder if Denis McDonough, the chief of staff, was part of the conversation, he thought for a moment and said, “He was not there.” Holder hastened to add that “someone had spoken to him.”Jarrett holds a key vote on Cabinet picks she opposed Larry Summers at Treasury and was among the first Obama aides to come around on Hillary Clinton at State and has an outsize say on ambassadorships and judgeships. She helps determine who gets invited to the First Lady’s Box for the State of the Union, who attends state dinners and bill-signing ceremonies, and who sits where at any of the above.Excerpt Read more at newrepublic.com …

Before It’s News
UlstermanBooks.com For years the relationship between the military and current Commander in Chief has been tepid at best. Now this underlying disdain is moving into increasing hostility as military leaders work to maintain open civility while in private, they share feelings of betrayal and outrage over a president who so willingly “lies 24/7″ about events both at home, and abroad.
Lost in the lack of interest common to a a holiday weekend was an admission by NBC’s Richard Engal of just how bad the situation has become between the Obama administration and the military:

The bombshell revelation about the surging IRS scandal this week was that Lois Lerner’s emails – those described as lost forever by the federal agency – were in fact backed up.But a report from the Media Research Center points out that the networks really didn’t appear to be paying attention.
The report from Deputy Research Director Geoffrey Dickens noted that not only did the networks not examine a long list of potential conflicts of interest, they didn’t even bother to report the “big revelations.”“Big Three network coverage of these stunning developments through Wednesday morning? 0 seconds,” he wrote.It was on Monday already that Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said a Justice Department attorney confirmed the long-sought emails from Lerner, a former executive for the IRS who repeatedly has refused to testify before Congress, do exist.

Obama’s Obeisance to Cult of Vain Valerie….. “Obama’s Obeisance to Cult of Vain Valerie You don’t need to see an image of black-suited male figurines bowing to Valerie Jarrett’s White House picture to know that Valerie Jarrett is a cult in her own mind. The real life cult is that Jarrett, the power behind the current White House president, cultishly bows down to Barack Hussein Obama—and that Obama cultishly bows down to Valerie Jarrett….”

Obama’s Obeisance to Cult of Vain Valerie
The real life cult is that Jarrett, the power behind the current White House president, cultishly bows down to Barack Hussein Obama—and that Obama cultishly bows down to Valerie Jarrett.“An NBC package over the weekend shows an odd display. BuzzFeed, July 1, 2014
“On NBC on Sunday, Meet the Press had a segment on Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.“Our Cynthia McFadden was granted unique access and spent a day behind the scenes with Valerie Jarrett at the White House,” host David Gregory said introducing the segment.”The Jarrett NBC segment reminded all that 36 White House staffers work for Jarrett, who receives full-time Secret Service protection, and has 24-7 access to Obama White House living quarters.
“Strangely, inside her office is this photo with figures bowing before a picture of Jarrett,” reports NBC.In what has to be the most nondescript fashion, of all time, NBC described the three figurines bowing before a framed picture of Jarrett as….”figures”.
The three figurines—one of them prostrate—paying obeisance to Jarrett’s picture are all male.Current Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough should worry.

The Weekly Standard ^ | June 20, 2014 | JOHN MCCORMACKPosted on 6/20/2014, 12:46:10 PM by don-oWhite House aides have anonymously attacked the honesty of soldiers who served with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and testified that he deserted.
But Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser to President Obama at the White House, would not say Friday morning if she agreed that Bergdahl had been “swiftboated” by his fellow soldiers, as a few White House aides told NBC’s Chuck Todd.TWS: White House aides have suggested that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was unfairly maligned in the press by some of those who served with him.
There’s a quote Chuck Todd reported that he’s been “swiftboated.” Is that something that you agree with? Do you think that there’s anything inaccurate that’s been said about Sgt. Bergdahl by those who served with him?JARRETT:
