ABC´s Jon Karl Wonders: Who´s
In Charge of Obama´s White House?

Newsbusters, by Cheri Jacobus

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 10:33:42 PM

So just who is in charge in Barack Obama´s White House? ABC´s Jonathan Karl on Tuesday asked White House press secretary why the letter from the White House to Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle. The president´s spokesman, when asked why the letter was from Jarrett rather than the President, said "Valerie spends a

Obama didn´t sign it because he didn´t want HIS OWN signature on the letter---some part isn´t consistent with his stated public policy. He´s just using VJ to distance himself from any political blowback. Any questions: direct them to Jarrett, not Obama. He didn´t say anything and besides, didn´t know about it.

Press Secretary Josh Earnest claimed that ...the White House claims no responsibility or accountability, for the tweets.

Of course not. How silly to believe the White House claims responsibility. For anything.

However, he did not offer any explanation as to why an "independent" organization can tweet in Barack Obama´s name or how this can occur without input and permission from the president´s political team....

It has long been known that Obama doesn´t work. He plays. Others do the work. We have speculated who those people might be and are pretty certain we know: Everything is coming up Valerie. Well, maybe not everything, seeing as how we have liars and Marxists running almost every Agency in the government. Lois Lerner and other criminal elements like Koskinen and apologists run this government.

The sixties radicals who now wear ties and suits are running this government. But do not make the ridiculous error that Obama himself runs anything except away from responsibility. That is why he always blames Republicans and George Bush for everything he screws up.

No, no, this White House is Valerie´s and Michelle´s palace balcony.

While many journalists have been disgusting true believers in obama, I think Jonathan Karl is a good journalist who has just been way too credulous about the regime and its lies. The past few months he seems to have woken up. Now awake I think he sees a whole lot of disturbing activity at the WH, like... Who´s in charge indeed, Jon?

The response? The president does not write, nor does he read his own tweets.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn´t there.
He wasn´t there again today,
I wish, I wish he´d go away...

When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn´t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don´t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don´t slam the door...

Last night I saw upon the stair,
A little man who wasn´t there,
He wasn´t there again today
Oh, how I wish he´d go away...

The further we get down this road of destruction of our democracy... the more I am convinced this man never really thought he would have to make tough decisions or get involved with anything requiring actual work. He wants to BE the president, and the job is for others to do.

I mean if a tweet can be put online under his twitter account by a national woman´s organization, and he isn´t aware of it (which I´m not at all surprised), what makes us think he does anything until someone else tells him to. Well, but golf and fly around the country.

Obama is not the first U.S. President who has brought questionable advisors with him to the WH. Presumed puppet master George Soros may have taken a page out of the history playbook he understands best with his use of ValJar as Obama´s chief advisor.

Old Georgie probably has studied the FDR years and his administration. ValJar is Obama´s Harry Hopkins. There is a fair amount of controversy about the HH role in the WH. There are some who say HH was a Soviet spy.

The 1999 publication of the book The Sword and The Shield by Soviet KGB archivist, Vasili Mitrokhin, was based on notes and materials from classified KGB files Mitrokhin copied from 1972 until his retirement in 1984. Supposedly the book provides "new evidence" that Harry Hopkins was a Soviet spy. The book is an exposé of the KGB and its operations in the U.S. and Europe. Mitrokhin defected in 1992 and his materials were later spirited out of Moscow by British agents.

While I don´t necessarily believe the HH accusation, I do believe the worst about ValJar. I suspect her path must have crossed with Bill Ayers´ path at the University of Michigan, where ValJar earned her JD law degree.

Look no further than Valerie Jarrett´s Iranian roots. Make the connection to the irrational Muslim mindset that justifies any behavior no matter how brutal or violent as long as it accomplishes their goals. She has an agenda that Obama fully embraces. They are on course to destroy the greatest democracy the world has every known to allow the rise of the Islamic caliphate. The Middle East is on fire due to their policies. Israel is being bombarded daily by seventh century Neanderthals who want to wipe it from the face of the earth. Obama and ValJar are shaking their fists in the face of God by so weakening this nation politically, culturally, and militarily that we won´t or can´t come to Israel´s aid. This is bigger than politics. It is bigger than pure ambition. This is a direct act against God and His people. We are not above experiencing God´s wrath and Obama and his Babylonian consigliere just may sentence us to it. (I acknowledge my perspective is from a Biblical prospective and understand that many may not agree.) Lastly, the Bible clearly states that Israel will stand alone against her enemies. Therefore, her biggest supporter must be made ineffective and unable or unwilling to give her aid and support. Troubling times.

It´s shocking how this administration ´plays´ everyone and how the press falls for it.

BO IS a community organizer. He only knows how to complain and rabble rouse. He has NO ability to lead people in a positive, constructive direction. He thinks he can simply demand and things will happen. That is his concept of leadership.

To some extent, the massive federal bureaucracy allows him to do that. Agencies of the federal government are not going to challenge the president´s orders. For some bizarre reason the Congress doesn´t seem to have standing to challenge a president that is breaking and bending laws.

Of course his inner circle is going to wield power in his name, especially since he is so incompetent and disengaged.

History will not be kind to BO.

fta:
"Valerie spends a lot of time maintaining relationships with governors around the country" on behalf of the President.

Correction: Valerie spends a lot of time with her arm up Obama´s, uhm, torso, and her hand in his mouth.

I was on national news two weeks ago because I attended a local town hall mtg & asked Qs about our earthquakes. NBC Nightly w/Brian Williams & CBS Morning. Getting there half an hour early, I found myself seated with two liberal women in front of me & two liberal (nurses) next to me. They were middle aged like me. The conversation was very depressing. One in front said: I used to be a Republican until I realized Republicans care about corporations & Democrats care about people. The one next to me later said: the only reason Republicans don´t like Obama is because he´s black. I laughed & shook my head. After one attempt, I realized it was hopeless to change their minds about conservatives in 20 minutes. So, I educated them about the Tea Party. They had no idea there are minorities & Democrats in it. But the ignorance, guys, is stunning. Our MSM has done a masterful job.

I remember back before the election there were articles on Valerie and her father, both members of the local Communist Party known as the New Party. Party members were backing Obama when he ran for State Senator.

There were backgrounds on both of them. Now she is in the White House. I was shocked to learn she has her own Secret Service Protection Team. Since when do Advisors get SS Protection? Who authorized that?

"We The People" better stop the complacency, get off their lazies, get out from behind their computers and hit the "streets", so to speak. If they don´t then they should stop whining about the country going to hades in a hand basket because they are carrying it.

Obama’s Speech To The American

It wasn’t exactly the roaring, adoring, campaign-style crowd President Barack Obama is accustomed to. On Tuesday, the president spoke to the American Legion’s national convention, facing a crowd of veterans deeply concerned about widespread corruption at the Veterans Administration and the resultant deaths of some veterans awaiting health care. So when Obama began by lecturing the veterans about cynicism and explaining his most recent foreign policy choices — instead of addressing the VA crisis — the audience clearly wasn’t pleased. Fox News cameras captured a sea of blank or frowning faces looking silently back at the president as he paused

FALFURRIAS, Texas — Two more bodies of illegal immigrants were discovered in a rural Texas county -- bringing the year total for the one county to 48 known deaths. A 9-1-1 call to the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office led to the discovery. Brooks County surrounds Falfurrias, Texas, which is approximately 80-90 miles from the Texas border with Mexico. The 9-1-1 call was made by an illegal alien who survived after regaining cell phone coverage in mile one of the nearly seventeen mile journey that the, now deceased, illegal immigrants were making to sneak around a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Koskinen even told Congress that IRS "moved heaven and earth" trying to recover the emails but simply could not find a way to do so. Now, thanks to a determined federal judge, the country learns that all government emails are preserved in a doomsday kind of database. Lerner´s emails never were lost.They just don´t want to look.

Police said any street directly connected to the convention center could have delays on Tuesday morning and early afternoon. Secret service agents and CMPD will escort Obama to the convention center.

A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing emails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them. , “A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’ Shannon Bream. “But it would be too hard to go get lois lerner’s emails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one. The audacious bin Laden raid in Pakistan had been a success but also preying on his mind

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree grouped the shooting of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., earlier this month, with two of the most monumental deaths American civil-rights history on MSNBC. Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,
