Report: Valerie Jarrett Led
Secret Negotiations with Iran
for Past Year

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Brian Cates

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/18/2013 9:33:30 AM

The Times Of Israel is reporting that a team of negotiators led by White House adviser Valerie Jarrett has been conducting secret talks with Iran about it´s nuclear weapons program for the past year. The report states the deal submitted in Geneva earlier this month was a direct result of these secret year-long negotiations between teams headed by Jarrett and Iran´s Ali Akbar Salehi. That deal was ultimately rejected when France and Israel raised strong objections, and talks are expected to resume this Wednesday. The White House was very quick to issue a categorical denial of the report. According to

Comments:
Please explain to me how she has the authority to do this. 0bama and his entire regime absolutely terrify me.

There is no doubt in my mind that this as absolutely 100% true! especially now that the WH has said it is 100% false.

ValJar is part Iranian. It makes perfect sense. It also explains why France and Israel are opposed to the plan. Obama has secretly been easing sanctions over the past year. All the dots are falling into place.

Who would have thought that a Chicago slum lord who had the President of the US fly to Copenhagen to pitch for the Summer Olympics so that her slum could be purchased at an exorbitant price for an Olympic parking lot could be negotiating nuclear weapons with Iran? Is this why she is the first WH adviser to ever have a Secret Service contingent 24/7/365?

Have a feeling that the Geneva surrender she is trying to negotiate will result in the Iranians buying her Chicago properties for a future consulate office. Obama will tout his Neville Chamberlain treachery as "unprecedented" but will not mention the unprecedented purchase of a Chicago slum as part of Val Jar´s secret deal.

Just wait ...

Someone will come up with a recording or photo of her in Iran - including a transcript of the "secret" negotiations and Obama will come out and say that no on ever told him about it. That he thought she was in Iran to visit her family!

Jarrett is uniquely qualified to lead
secret discussions with Iran. She lived
in Iran until she was five years old.
Think of the experience she gained while
riding her tricycle through the streets
of Tehran.

Yeah, I know. Raised in Iran, no foreign policy experience, no relevant job title, on and on. I get it

But what I find myself wondering is: how does she make money out of it? Chase THAT question, and the story will emerge.

Jarrett is not Iranian. She was born in Shiraz to American parents. According to her Wikipedia citation, one grandparent was Jewish.

Look her up.

Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz in 1950, as part of a program where American physicians and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries´ health and farming efforts.

She reportedly spoke Persian and French as a child.

The precedent for this traitorous activity was set in the 1970s, when former Swiftboat captain J. Effin Kerry, flew to Paris to negotiate a ´´peace´´ treaty of some kind with the North Vietnamese.

J. Effin Kerry is now our Secretary of State, whose job it actually is to do these things. I have to wonder if he KNOWS she´s over there doing his job HER way.....?

In either case, they should both be in Leavenworth. Or maybe Supermax is more appropriate.

Just don´t expect anything to come of this by way of prosecution or even public awareness. Nothing happened in the 70s either.

The purpose of 6 way negotiations with nations like North Korea and Iran that have a habit of violating treaties, is twofold: to minimize the chance of being duped, to ensure that all involved parties support the final deal, and to avoid enhancing the credibility of the rogue state with one on one negotiations.

In this case the US has weakened sanctions and allowed Iran to sell large amounts of oil to lessen pressure on the Mullahs. Allowing Iran to continue nuclear activity does not improve security in the Middle East, nor does it serve ANY US interest. This is solely about a legacy for Obama. the creation of a nuclear Iran, and perhaps the destruction of Israel as a nation. We may never know, the talks were secret.

Jarrett runs everything and sends him off to the golf course, go to fundraisers, or party. THAT is what this presidency is all about!

VALJAR is the one we should be aiming for.

VALJAR needs to feel the consequences of the threats she made before the last election. She may have hit back but she didnt put out the fire. The fire has been there since 1776.

Put VALJAR where she belongs: in jail!

Seems the only remaining question is what the Iranians are giving Dear Leader in return for him allowing them to develop and deploy their Islamic Nukes. No, one more question: how does Dear Leader intend to prevent the Israelis from stopping Iran? After all, the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

Does anybody know what ValJar´s title is?
Does anybody know why she has her own 24/7
Secret Service detail? (Or maybe I should ask why she has her own "SS" detail?) Like the Nazis.

It must be pretty high up since according to several sources she has the power to order the stand down order in Benghazi while Obama was playing with Reggie or being treated for his HIV or whatever.

It does make you think: Obama, raised in Indonesia by a mother working there as an anthropologist, and Jarrett, raised in Iran by parents working there--both of whom seem to have many shadowy connections, including some in common (Vernon Jarrett, her father-in-law, and Frank Marshall Davis ran in the same Communist circles in Chicago).

I hate to say it, but many of my fellow LDotters have lost their marbles. Even if this story was true, so what? Obama can designate whomever he pleases to be an intermediary. If talks like this occurred, if, then they had to be secret. Ms. Jarrett has his full confidence, so why wouldn´t he choose her?

Like many lefties during the Bush years, derangement has taken hold of some opposed to Obama´s policies, few (or none) of which are to my liking.

52, Obama wants to "fundamentally change" and he´s gone long way in effing it up.

Valerie Jarrett is doing the spade work for Obama, while Obama is busy getting high.

Barack Hussein Obama is a Communist pretty boy stalking horse who, when he´s not busy playing golf by day and getting high at 51PM EST every afternoon, responds somewhat truthfully when he confesses that every reported impeachable offense is news to him when reported by a reluctant main stream media.

How long will it take the tradespeople to eliminate the stench of cigarette, marijuana, crack, and meth from someday blessedly Hussein Obama White House? Not to mention the mother-in-laws deep=frying funk? And the overall general funk?

The president was not directly informed that Valerie Jarrett´s trips to Iran comprised anything more than chitchat. Advisors discussed whether to say more but decided that the best possible communication would be one unburdened with endless details and footnotes re VJ´s chitchat with Iranian BFFs. Could they have handled it better? Yes. Are they perfect people? No. But did they say the least untruthful thing and isn´t it really just precision on their part not to call something "negotiations" when it didn´t involve formal TORs?

Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
