Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents linking Valerie Jarrett, an advisor to Barack Obama and the co-chairman of the President-Elect’s transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin "Tony" Rezko.

According to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago housing projects operated by real estate developers and Obama financial backers Rezko and Allison Davis.(Davis is also Obama’s former boss.) Jarrett was a member of the Board of Directors for the Woodlawn Preservation and Investment Corporation along with several Davis and Rezko associates, as well as the Fund for Community Redevelopment and Revitalization, an organization that worked with Rezko and Davis.

(According to press reports, housing projects operated by Davis and Rezko have been substandard and beset with code violations. The Chicago Sun Times reported that one Rezko-managed housing project was "riddled with problems — including squalid living conditions…lack of heat, squatters and drug dealers.")

As Chief Executive Officer of the Habitat Company Jarrett also managed a controversial housing project located in Obama’s former state senate district called Grove Parc Plaza. According to the Boston Globe the housing complex was considered "uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage…In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale — a score so bad the buildings now face demolition." Ms. Jarrett refused to comment to the Globe on the conditions of the complex.

"Like Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett is a product of the corrupt Chicago political machine. And it is no stretch to say that she was a slumlord," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "We have real concerns about Jarrett’s ethics. Washington already has plenty of corruption. We don’t need to import more of it from Chicago."

Characterized as "the other side of Barack Obama’s brain" by CBS News, Jarrett first met the Obamas seventeen years ago when she offered Michelle Obama a job. While speculation has arisen that Jarrett could take Obama’s place in the U.S. Senate, the New York Times reported that it is more likely she will become a senior White House adviser, thus continuing her long record of being an important influence and mentor to Barack and Michelle Obama.

So just remember when you pull that lever for Barack Obama, you're really pulling the lever for Valerie Jarret who White House officials nicknamed the "Night Stalker".

Think of them like Siamese twins. It's not far from reality.

If the NYT is reporting her power over this president, it's pretty much "common knowledge".
Richard Nixon had H.R. Haldeman. Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush both had James Baker. George W. Bush had Karl Rove. President Obama once had political adviser David Axelrod – now working on his reelection campaign in Chicago.

Now the president’s tough guy is Jarrett.

Jarrett does few on-the-record interviews. But last week at the Democrat’s convention in Charlotte I asked one of her aides if she had time for on-camera interview with Fox News. I was thrilled when the aide got back to me and said,‘yes.’

As Jarrett walked over to the Fox News studio space at the convention she had to stop frequently to shake hands and take pictures – more than most of the elected officials walking around. She was a political royalty at the convention.

When my friend, Fox News anchor Bret Baier, got up to welcome her I noticed there was no evidence of the Secret Service detail that the Times reported she insists on having protect her, in what is apparently a first for an aide to the president.

In the interview I asked Jarrett for permission to explore three of the tales of her legendary power.

Did she meet with Hillary Clinton early on about being vice president?

Her answer: "Not true and I'm glad you asked me that. Not true."

Did she urge the president to call off the Bin Laden raid three times?

“Not a single time, let alone three times. Never had a conversation with the president about the Bin Laden raid. Never once.”

Did she push out Bill Daley and Rahm Emanuel when they served as White House Chief of Staff?
“Of course not -- never once. They’re from Chicago. They’re old friends. I’ve known both of them as long as I’ve known the president."

She can't be lying. FOX would never print any lies of any sort.

The Boston Globe not only published an investigative report about Jarrett's slums but made a televised documentary about it. I saw it myself.

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 city’s aggressive politics, Ms. Jarrett came to Washington with no national experience. But her unmatched access to the Obamas has made her a driving force in some of the most significant domestic policy decisions of the president’s first term, her persuasive power only amplified by Mr. Obama’s 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.' By day, Mr. Obama is 'Mr. President' to her, but in social settings, he is just 'Barack.' When the Obamas take an out-of-town break, she often goes along.
"Mr. Obama’s first two chiefs of staff, Rahm Emanuel and Mr. Daley, clashed with Ms. Jarrett over strategic direction and over who had greater authority to interpret and carry out the president’s wishes, several officials said."

Knowledge is power.
Now Carol, you're making a whole lot of people on here go stick their heads in the sand, but soon they will be back with some inane, insulting response that doesn't address what you just posted, but which they will think is incredibly insightful in its vindictiveness.:)

<quoted text>It is common knowledge that Valerie Jarretts' grandfather was Robert Taylor, the same Robert Taylor that supported the democrat platform of caging up the blacks in Chicago, allowing no assimilation into Chicago city proper. It is also common knowledge that Valerie Jarrett's mother was Barbara T. Bowman. She conducted mental and vaccine experiments on the blacks that were segregated in Chicago. Communists do that you know-to this day they think blacks are used idiots. No doubt Valerie feels the same about Hussein O'bama.
The Bush family hooked up with Germany during WW2.

Just remember when you pull the lever for Romney:

1. Romney will shut down FEMA and redirect taxpayer money to private contractors

2. Romney will sign any and all anti abortion legislation

3. Romney will give a tax cuts to the wealthy that the middle class will pay for; again

4. Romney will dismantle the EPA; making way for further pollution of our fields and streams; will destroy our natural resources drilling for oil

5. Romney will end Medicare and Medicaide and privatize Social Security

6. Romney endorse Mourdock; the Rapepublican who said a rapists c hild is a gift from God

7. Romney will sign the Personhood bill, outlawing contraception, the morning after pill and abortion.

As a "severely conservative" Republican primary candidate, Mitt Romney said he would consider shuttering the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

When asked, "even in the event of a national disaster?", he said "yes"
