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.

It´s shocking how this administration ´plays´ everyone and how the press falls for it. Can they not believe their eyes and ears or are they so far gone as real Americans that they are not willing to give up their ideology when they see it is collapsing right in front of them?

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.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The King fire in Northern California grew this weekend, destroying at least 10 homes, as officials worried that changing weather conditions could fuel the massive blaze even more. National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Clapp said meteorologists were watching closely to see whether shifting weather patterns early this week would generate winds similar to those present last week when the fire spread quickly. The blaze in Eldorado National Forest has grown to encroach on the Tahoe National Forest, officials said. It grew to 82,018 acres and was 10% contained as of Sunday morning, and more than 5,200 firefighters are battling the

"The Assad regime must know that it will be held to account for such use in the international community," Kerry said, noting that the report raises "especially troubling concerns that continued chemical attacks on the Syrian people by the regime could occur."

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April. Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance. "Health insurance is confusing enough, and now they´re adding the complexities of

On Meet the Press Sunday morn, host Chuck Todd found a new way to say the exact same thing political pundits have been saying daily for the past year: the 2014 midterms structurally favor Republicans thanks to the Senate seats at play. Or in Todd’s new red-state-blue-stateish formulation, it’s Starbucks Nation vs. Chick-Fil-A country. The chain-based heuristic refers to urban areas that vote Democratic versus ex-urban and rural areas that vote Republican. In 2012 the battleground states favored urban, Starbucks-pocked areas, hence Obama’s win; in the upcoming election, the toss-up states are more rural,

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
