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.
Think about this for a moment. In addition to Barack O'bama serving on a Board with Bill Ayers, the mother of Obama's most trusted political confidant (Valerie Jarrett) served on a Board with Bill Ayers' father (along with Ayers' wife Bernadine Dohrn). As if that weren't enough, Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law was a close colleague of Barack Obama's Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Valerie Jarrett is undoubtedly a woman of power and influence.

Obama has in-fact said that he makes NO decision without her.

Jarrett is also a far-left subversive radical who's completely obsessed with racial issues... and was never properly vetted by the MSM, let alone anybody in the White House.

And this woman was Van Jones' recruiter, biggest supporter, and cheerleader. And the corruption she was involved with through Habitat Corp and Tony Rezko back in Chi-town is appalling-
Jarrett is linked to a series of shameful real-estate scandals, including projects operated by Rezko and Allison Davis (former boss of Obama). Housing projects developed and/or operated by Davis and Rezko have been manifestly substandard and beset with code violations.

Basically, Obama helped get them public funding for projects purported to be "for the poor"- while these charlatans spent as little as possible building and maintaining them- and Jarrett "managed" and looked the other way for $300K/yr in salary... plus $850K of "deferred income" -according to her own report.

As CEO of The Habitat Company, Valerie Jarrett, was notably responsible for the controversial housing project located in Obama’s district Grove Parc Plaza, which according to the Boston Globe 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.

Ah what's one more on Barack Hussein O'bama and Valerie Jarrett-but as libs like to say it's been debunked---was that before or after it was destroyed? I suppose debunked-destroyed? they both begin with D-E...
This is what the future looks like under Barack Obama. One big rat-infested slum destined for the demolition crew.

After stealing millions of taxpayer dollars, Obama’s chief advisor Valerie Jarrett and her “property management” company let people live in squalor in Chicago’s Grove Parc Plaza public housing during the years from 2001 to 2006.

“Where’s the money?” asks a tenant [watch the video] of the dilapidated housing Jarrett and then state senator Barack Obama were responsible for.

The money sure didn’t trickle down to that poor woman’s apartment.

Jarrett was executive vice president of Habitat Co. in Chicago. They were to oversee the Section 8 housing in the South Side. Guess what? The then state senator Obama was in charge of the district in which Grove Parc was situated.

Where’s the money, Obama? Grove Parc was demolished in 2007 to be rebuilt into a mixed use property.

Hi Mr. Yahoo.
vs. you voting for Obama and failure for all. His record of failure is worse then Jimmy Carters. We don't need to make rediculous comparisons like you just did.
What Obama failures?

Bringing the troops home from Iraq?

Bringing Bin Laden to justice in his term when Bush couldn't do in two terms?

Saving the auto industry?

Passed the Affordable healthcare act for uninsured americans?

Only an ignorant racist would view Obama failure.

Actually(I'm using the same source you did(?)) all he said on FOX was that Romney trying to use the disaster as a photo op was a stupid idea.
So now in addition to name-calling and insults your method of convincing us that you are correct includes a LIE also? I HEARD IT MYSELF ON FOX. What on earth is WRONG with you? Can you not make a point HONESTLY without trying to cover up, insult, put-down, twist the facts or LIE? You should be ASHAMED! Have you considered that if you MUST to all that to seem like you are right, you are most likely incredibly, undeniably WRONG?

Which brings us to this libs: We are all Grove Parc tenants now under the O'bama/Jarret lib administration. History repeats itself. This story has many echoes that resonate through the country today. Barack O'bama has done for the United States what he did for Grove Parc. The more things hope and change, the more they stay the same.

As a state senator, O'bama, coauthored an Illinois law creating a new pool of tax credits for developers. As a US senator, O'bama pressed for increased federal subsidies. And as a presidential candidate, he has campaigned on a promise to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund that could give developers an estimated $500 million a year.

But a state review found that thousands of apartments across Chicago that had been built with local, state, and federal subsidies - including several hundred in O'bama's former district - deteriorated so completely that they were no longer habitable.

Now the parallels begin. O'bama allies profit while everyone else suffers. Sound familiar?

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by O'bama's close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of O'bama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.
The players of Grove Parc? Valerie Jarrett.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to O'bama's presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee. Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.
Allison Davis

Allison Davis, a major fund-raiser for O'bama's US Senate campaign and a former lead partner at O'bama's former law firm. Davis, a developer, was involved in the creation of Grove Parc and has used government subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,500 units in Chicago, including a North Side building cited by city inspectors last year after chronic plumbing failures resulted in raw sewage spilling into several apartments.
Tony Rezko

Antoin "Tony" Rezko, perhaps the most important fund-raiser for Obama's early political campaigns and a friend who helped the Obamas buy a home in 2005. Rezko's company used subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,000 apartments, mostly in and around Obama's district, then refused to manage the units, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.
And they were key to Obama's political future:

Campaign finance records show that six prominent developers - including Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko - collectively contributed more than $175,000 to Obama's campaigns over the last decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by O'bama's own accounting.
One of those contributors, Cecil Butler, controlled Lawndale Restoration, the largest subsidized complex in Chicago, which was seized by the government in 2006 after city inspectors found more than 1,800 code violations.

They could throw major money at O'bama and thus O'bama decided to champion their cause: Screw the poor and make money off of them.

And, you're defending the position that Obama shouldn't be involved in any government function he doesn't have profissional experience with?
I suppose managing the Department of Community Organizing takes up all his time.
He's the president. He's the top authority. His responsibility is to make the decisions.
Perhaps, because he doesn't have any experience at anything in his entire life, the best thing is for that chair to be empty.
We're going to introduce some change to that situation very soon.
Romney wins by a landslide.
Fifteen of the nineteen "arabs" that murdered the 3,000 Americans were from Saudi Arabia. So why are you relating the unprovoked Republican invasion of Iraq to 9-11?
Consider yourself corrected.
