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.
Ok, I think I get it now: it's because Valerie Jarrett was in favor of free contraceptives, isn't it? This is your usual agenda of trashing anyone who is in favor of womens rights to their bodies.
Did Clinton's senior WH officials call Lindsey "the single most influential person in the Clinton administration"? Did Lindsey follow Clinton home every night and go with him on vacations?
Was he called Clinton's "mysterious advisor"? Was he qualified to have such influence over Clinton and his administration?

How about Hughes and Miers? Same questions.

None of them fall into the same category as Valerie Jarrett. Shouldn't we know a little more about someone who is nicknamed "the night stalker" to the president?

Still jonesing for Valerie Jarrett? What's your problem? The President should not have an advisor? Or is because she's a woman, or because she's a black woman?
Go do some more homework on Rove.
Does this Jarrett crap come from Beck?
None of these azzholes had ever heard of Jarret, Ayers, Alinski etc etc etc until Beck splained it to them every night. You should have read some of the crazy sht Carol used to post on the TeaParty thread__and she would fight with anyone that didn't into Becks creations.

LOL. No surprise that you would embrace a book published by World Net Daily.
You are so busy looking for a whine, you loose all perspective.

"A quarter century ago, in his international bestseller Red Horizons, Pacepa exposed the massive crimes and corruption of his former boss, Romanian President Nicolae Ceausescu, giving the dictator a nervous breakdown and inspiring him to send assassination squads to the U.S. to find his former spy chief and kill him. They failed. On Christmas Day 1989, Ceausescu was executed by his own people at the end of a trial whose accusations came almost word-for-word out of Red Horizons.

Indeed, within these pages, Pacepa, along with his co-author, historian and law professor Ronald Rychlak, expose some of the most consequential yet largely unknown disinformation campaigns of our lifetime. "

Oh well, it's like how you reich wingers copied Saul Alinsky because his techniques were so good!
I love this comedy channel!!!
This poster has some interesting insights:

"Just about every issue debated in America today has been reframed from a conservative rather than realistic perspective.

Example: from the 1940's until the mid 1990's approximately 67% of Americans consistently supported an estate tax. However, in 1996, republicans began reframing perception by re-labeling the "estate tax" as the "death tax". Within 3 years, support for "the tax" was reduced to 30%.

What happened? The only thing that changed is the label. That, in turn, changed the attached associations, value judgments and emotions. The implanted perception now contained the negative associations that come to mind when one thinks of death; and since everyone dies, the false construct that everyone will be effected by "the tax" was linked as well.

In the same manner, Liberal was reframed and attached to everything negative and conservative has become reframed as representing everything good.

Corporate welfare bailouts (something conservatives would never support) gained overwhelming conservative support simply by relabeling the bailouts as "liquidity backstops".

Unnecessary war was reframed as an iminant national security treat.
Gun control of any kind means "they" want to take away your hunting rifle.
The term "pro-life" has been reframed to be associated almost solely with abortion, while restricting any association with war, health care or capital punishment.

Then of course there is torture. The Bush administration didn't want to be associated with torturing people, so torture was reframed as "enhanced interrogation techniques". All of a sudden nobody even knows what torture is anymore and 1/2 of America supports simulated drowning.

When reframing is used to produce a broader and deeper cognitive representation of the real world, it is called therapy. When it is used to reduce understanding and restrict perception to a single applied ideology and is done without express consent, it is called manipulation.

How else can republicans expand the size of government more in the last 8 years than in any other 8 year period in history and still be seen by half of America as the fiscally responsible party.

How else can real conservatives be convinced to support the party that gives out no bid contracts and passes and defends laws against the government negotiating drug prices with the pharm companies.

Millions on Americans are being reframed to perceive the world in a more restricted and therefore less accurate view. The very roots of many problems for which people seek therapy to improve have been implanted to constrict personal growth and development. Is it any wonder mental health stability in America has declined significantly since 2000?

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated into the collective.

Then there is the false dichotomy. It helps create in-group, out group identification and conformity. For those that adopt a dichotomous world view, the world is viewed in a single extremely restricted and tightly controlled manipulated perception. And, if you don't conform - then you are "one of them"

Examples:

"You are either with us or against us"
"You either support the war, or you support the terrorists"
"you are either against abortion or you support murdering babies.
"if you don't agree with a conservative position, you are acting like a liberal"

You no longer have to wonder why America is so divided...."

My favorite part of Realtimes idiocy was the claim that no one would know who Ayers was. Ayer's Weatherman has always been on the radar.

Are you serious??

Alright, airhead, here's your answer.

Maybe valerie Jarrett is an astrologer.

Reagan ran the Government based on the advice from Nancy's astrologist. It was a major scandal when the hidden astrologer was discovered making decisions of State. And Reagan kept the astrologer a secret until Don Regan mentioned it in his memoirs.

At least we know about Valerie Jarrett.

----------

" In his 1988 memoirs, Don Regan wrote about Nancy's consultations with the astrologer, the first public mention of them, which resulted in embarrassment for the First Lady. Nancy later wrote, "Astrology was simply one of the ways I coped with the fear I felt after my husband almost died... Was astrology one of the reasons [further attempts did not occur]? I don't really believe it was, but I don't really believe it wasn't."

"Nancy Reagan wielded a powerful influence over President Reagan. Again stemming from the assassination attempt, she strictly controlled access to the president and even occasionally attempted to influence her husband's decision making."

"Press framing of Nancy changed from that of just helpmate and protector to someone with hidden power. As the image of her as a political interloper grew, she sought to explicitly deny that she was the power behind the throne. At the end of her time as First Lady, however, she said that her husband had not been well-served by his staff. She acknowledged her role in reaction in influencing him on personnel decisions, saying "In no way do I apologize for it."
