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

Newsbusters, by Cheri Jacobus

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

Is there anyone who doesn´t realize ValJar is in charge? Karl knows better.

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.

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.

"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.

The NCAA agreed on Tuesday to help athletes with head injuries in a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit that college sports’ governing body touted as a major step forward but that critics say doesn’t go nearly far enough. The deal, filed in US District Court in Chicago, calls for the NCAA to toughen return-to-play rules for players who receive head blows and create a $70 million fund to pay for thousands of current and former athletes to undergo testing to determine whether they suffered brain trauma while playing football and other contact sports.

Gov. Pat Quinn today signed into law a measure to put a non-binding referendum on the fall ballot asking voters whether millionaires should be taxed at a higher rate — a move aimed at helping drive up Democratic turnout. The measure represents a Plan B for Quinn, who had supported efforts initiated by Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan to have a binding constitutional amendment placed on the ballot to require millionaire incomes to pay an additional 3 percentage points above the current individual income tax rate. That plan went nowhere in the General Assembly. The ballot proposal signed by Quinn

President Obama announced new, tougher sanctions against Russia on Tuesday, as Western nations ramped up pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin in the wake of the downing of a passenger jet in Ukraine. From the South Lawn of the White House, Obama said that the U.S would extend sanctions to major sectors of the Russian economy and three state-controlled banks. “The U.S. is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the Russian economy: energy, arms and finance,” Obama said. “Today, Russia is once again isolating itself from the international community,” he added, saying the penalties would have even "bigger bite"

The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

"I´m not a military planner but Hamas puts it´s missiles, it´s rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

Javier Bardem did not hold back on his feelings of disgust regarding the escalating violence in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. In an open letter sent out to the Spanish media over the weekend, he called Israel’s actions against Gaza a “genocide” and said he was outraged and ashamed by the "brutality" of the attacks. “In the horror happening right now in Gaza there is NO place for distance or neutrality,” Bardem wrote in the letter. “It’s a way of occupation and extermination waged against a people with no means, confined in a minimum territory, with no water, and where hospitals, ambulances and children

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team. Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Washington – During an awards ceremony at the White House, President Barack Obama whispered in the ear of superstar musician Linda Ronstadt that he once had a crush on her. The President admitted to the crowd afterwards that, "I told Linda Ronstadt I had a crush on her back in the day " Ronstadt joined Obama on stage, along with 11 other recipients of the 2013 National Medal of Arts. No word from the singer of such hits as "You´re no good," "Desperado," "It´s so easy," and "Blue Bayou," on what she said back to the President. Obama also thanked

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California
