In 2009 when millions of Iranians took to the streets to call for the removal of theocratic dictator Ahmadinejad, Obama remained silent, even though he later threw Mubarak under the bus, an ally of the United States and Israel for thirty years, calling for his removal within hours of the “democratic” (that is, Muslim Brotherhood-orchestrated) protests.
When it was an open secret that Iran was enriching uranium and at the same time calling Israel a “cancerous tumor that must be cut out”—that they needed to be “annihilated”—literally, Obama coddled Iran with calls for endless sanctions. When it became obvious to everyone except the White House that Iran was close to building a bomb or had already built one, Obama attempted to get Israel to not attack suspected nuclear bomb-making facilities, at least not until after he was reelected!
This month when Iran began hosting a website dedicated to glorifying Nazism, the White House didn’t bat an eye amid the ramifications of glorifying a nation that sought the “final solution” as the lynchpin to world domination.
The question must be asked, is there anyone actually in charge at the White House? Obama’s ad nauseam metaphor for two years was that the Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch, that Obama told them they had to sit in the back seat from now on. But it seems now that there isn’t anyone driving at all.
But in fact there is someone driving. There is a wizard behind the curtain pulling all the levers to shift gears, turn left and right, drive not only the United States, but the world.
No, it isn’t a sinister far-Left puppet master billionaire or Saudi prince, but a woman whose only claim to fame is that she was known as a Chicago slum lord.
As Edward Klein’s #1 bestseller The Amateur makes clear, it is Obama chief advisor Valerie Jarrett that sits in on all meetings, weighing in on everything from the humdrum to what suspected terrorist should be taken out. It is Jarrett who decides who sees Obama and who does not. It is Jarrett who is the eyes and ears of the White House, determining who is loyal to Obama and who is not, and who needs to be taken out: “Within months of [retired four-star Marine Corps general James Logan Jones Jr.] being appointed as Obama’s first national security adviser, Jones became the victim of a snarky whispering campaign by White House aides” and was one of the first Jarrett casualties in the White House (e-Book section 2004).
But who is Valerie Jarrett? Who is this woman behind the veil that many call the de facto POTUS?
Most would be surprised to learn she was born in Iran.
Most would be surprised to learn she was named “Iranian of the Day” in August of 2008 by Iranian.com.
Most would be surprised to know her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, has long-standing ties to communists.
Most would be surprised to learn that Jarrett often meets privately with Muslim activists.
