To some extent, Ms. Jarrett is part of a White House tradition. Bill Clinton brought along his fellow Arkansan Bruce Lindsey as his Mr. Fix-It. Mr. Bush had his Texas confidantes, Karen Hughes and Harriet Miers.

Working from a cozy office previously occupied by Mr. Rove, with a staff of nearly three dozen, Ms. Jarrett is the president’s link to the world outside the White House bubble.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice occasionally uses Ms. Jarrett, with whom she has become friendly, as an informal back channel to pass along foreign policy views, officials said.

And Bob Riley, a former Republican governor of Alabama, remembers the way Ms. Jarrett responded to his pleas for equipment to contain the BP oil spill in 2010.“Within 24 hours, what we had been told was an impossible task was done,” he said.

Report: Fast and Furious a product of DOJ ‘deliberate strategy’ laid out by Eric Holder, other senior Obama officials

Matthew Boyle
Investigative Reporter

The latest congressional report on Operation Fast and Furious found that the gunwalking-program-turned-scan dal was the result of a “deliberate strategy created at the highest levels of the Justice Department aimed at identifying the leaders of a major gun trafficking ring.”

The report is the second installment in a three-part series from Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Sen. Chuck Grassley and House oversight committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa.

That “deliberate strategy,” congressional investigators argue, sprang from “a series of speeches about combating violence along the Southwest border” that Attorney General Eric Holder delivered shortly after taking office.

It's common knowledge Valerie Jarrett made Obama who and what he is. She has access to the president's private quarters 24/7 and oftentimes is the last person to leave and have his ear.
Unless you think, like Lily, the New York Times doesn't know what it's saying:
"A Chicagoan who helped Mr. Obama navigate his rise through that insular management style.
"While other presidents have had their close confidentes "Few have had the stature and the ability to step outside traditional White House protocol of Ms. Jarrett. She is the only staff member who regularly follows the president home from the West Wing to the residence, a practice that has earned her the nickname 'the Night Stalker.'

Kenyan employes the race care to deflect criticism of his murder of the Benghazi four.

America knows the Kenyan left them to die and flew to Vegas to party with Beyonce

“But I do take offense, as I’ve said during one of the debates, that there’s some suggestion, you know, that we, in any way haven’t tried to make sure that the American people knew as information was coming in what we believed happened.”

Letter to the POTUS from Jim Dement!!!!

1. AARP makes most of its money selling health insurance to seniors – and profits financially when premiums rise. According to its own financial statements, AARP received nearly half a billion dollars in “royalty fees”– or what AARP members have called “kickbacks”– from United Healthcare just last year. Most of this money came from selling Medigap supplemental insurance to seniors. And the arrangement under which AARP receives royalties for selling Medigap plans is ethically questionable – AARP receives a percentage of every Medigap premium dollar paid by seniors, meaning AARP makes more in profits the higher premium costs climb.

2. AARP currently discriminates against seniors with pre-existing conditions. AARP admits that it imposes waiting periods on individuals applying for its Medigap plans who have pre-existing conditions. These practices not only violate AARP’s supposed commitment to “ending health status discrimination”– they also violate your claim that insurance companies won’t be able to “jerk you around” now that Obamacare has passed.

3. Obamacare allows AARP and other sellers of Medigap insurance to continue discriminating against seniors with pre-existing conditions. The Medigap insurance market – which AARP dominates – received a special exemption from the law’s ban on pre-existing condition discrimination, so AARP can continue its practice of restricting access to those with pre-existing conditions with your Administration’s blessing. Medigap insurance also received waivers from several other new requirements in the law: Section 1103 exempts plans from medical-loss ratio requirements; Section 9014 exempts plans from caps on industry executive compensation; and Section 10905(d) exempts plans from the tax applied to all other health insurers. Your Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) went even further, exempting Medigap insurance from premium rate review through regulations – even though AARP, the largest seller of Medigap plans, makes more in profit the higher premiums rise on seniors.

Documents recently released by House investigators also show a close nexus between your Administration and AARP during the rush to ram Obamacare through Congress. For instance, Jim Messina – then your Deputy Chief of Staff, now your re-election campaign manager – asked AARP for “immediate robo calls into Nebraska urging [Senator Ben] Nelson to vote for cloture” on the bill. And in December 2009, the White House Office of Public Engagement asked AARP to put out talking points rebutting a Republican amendment related to Medicare.

I am therefore concerned that your Administration may have negotiated a backroom deal, whereby AARP’s lucrative Medigap insurance was exempted from new regulations and enforcement, while AARP provided political cover to your campaign to enact Obamacare – and now your campaign for re-election. HHS Secretary Sebelius has been very quick to attack other insurers’ practices, but has not dared criticize AARP – even though AARP’s insurance business is more profitable than many other insurance companies.

If you want to ensure seniors are not at the mercy of insurance companies, I encourage you to stop defending AARP’s abusive insurance practices, and instead stand up to the organization when it takes advantage of seniors.

Sincerely,

Jim DeMint.

So Barack Hussien Obama conspired with AARP to win the
election and to hell with Seniors wishes?????

Common knowledge.
But if you kept reading..."But few have the stature and the ability to step outside traditional White House protocol of Ms. Jarrett."

Upon further reading..."She is the only staff member who regularly follows the president home from the West Wing...and when the Obamas take an out-of-town break, she often goes along."

And, of course, you must have missed the part where Obama’s two chiefs of staff, Rahm Emanuel and Mr. Daley, clash with Ms. Jarrett over strategic direction and over who has "greater authority to interpret and carry out the president’s wishes."

When a confidente "clashes with chiefs of staff" over a president's "strategic decisions" and "who has the greater authority"...there's something rotten in Denmark.

This is not the norm for any former president's confidentes.

So, again I say to you, knowledge is power.

Mitt Romney’s campaign has been training poll watchers in Wisconsin with highly misleading — and sometimes downright false — information about voters’ rights.

This packet could cause major problems if Republican observers across the state try to enforce such wrong and misleading information on Election Day. Even if they simply slow the voting process down, this could discourage voters waiting in line and drive drown turnout.

Here are four misleading or incorrect pieces of information disbursed by the Romney campaign:
