In the article, Big Guy claims he’s been mistaken for a valet and Lady M said he has also been mistaken for a waiter.Some say he’s been mistaken for a President:Rock star? President? Whatever.Butt I think we all know who the real president is around here: Although undocumented and forced to live in the shadows, Val is de facto el Presidente.

    Missouri Governor Jay Nixon adamantly denies that the White House pressured him to resist sending in the National Guard in response to violent protesters unhappy with the Michael Brown shooting decision. It is clear, however, that Nixon has been in close contact with President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as the chaotic situation unfolded. According to the White House, Jarrett spoke with Nixon the first night of the protests as well as the morning after. Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that Jarrett received “updates” from Nixon, “promising to stay in close touch” as the situation continued. “Valerie spoke to...

    After the past week's political upheavals in Washington and around the country, we are reminded that certain things remain constant in politics. Unfortunately, one of those things is the sexism leveled at any woman who rises to power in the White House -- under presidents of either party. No sooner was the hunt on for a fall guy for the Democratic midterm losses than some in the press predictably went after a fall gal -- President Barack Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett. Reporter Carol Felsenthal in Politico and others have decided that the best way to address Democratic losses is...

    The media have identified the problem with the Obama presidency and want her tarred and feathered. Or just fired. Or sidelined. Or made an ambassador to some faraway land. Her name is Valerie Jarrett. White House aide and longtime Chicago pal of Barack and Michelle Obama has been a target roughly from the day she stepped foot in Washington. But now, in the wake of the Democrats’ midterm wipeout, the press is really unloading on her. She has become the scapegoat-in-chief. The notion that a single staff person is responsible for most of the administration’s shortcomings over the last six...

    In the Barack Obama presidency, no name brings out conspiracy theorists as much as Valerie Jarrett. Perhaps Noam Scheiber at The New Republic intended his Jarrett profile to dispel the common perception of Jarrett as a Machiavellian figure, or even a Svengali. If so, Scheiber has missed the mark somewhat. Jarrett comes across as manipulative, both for Obama’s benefit but most definitely her own, and ruling the White House by fear, intimidation, and strategic acts of kindness (via Instapundit): Even at this late date in the Obama presidency, there is no surer way to elicit paranoid whispers or armchair...

    Voters will not see "Barack Obama" on the ballot on Tuesday, and the president might count himself lucky. A record low 44 percent of Americans report a favorable impression of him in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Today's six-point unfavorable-favorable margin matches the worst since Obama rose to the national stage. Tuesday's electorate is likely to be even less fond of the president: 53 percent of likely voters see Obama unfavorably, while 43 percent give him favorable marks. The poll finds those with strongly held views of Obama are most likely to turn out to vote.

This time around, however, the Obama administration and Secretary of State John Kerry have demanded that Israel agree to cease-fire proposals that Israel knew were not in its best interests–but, wanting to preserve the historically strong relationship between the two countries, Israel agreed.

    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world —W.B. Yeats, “The Second Coming”Wherever we look today—from the Fertile Crescent in the Middle East to the post-Cold War frontier in Ukraine to the South China Sea to our border with Mexico— our world appears to be falling apart. This naturally raises a serious question in the minds of many people: If America, the indispensable nation, had been doing its job of holding the global system together, couldn’t this chaos and anarchy have been avoided? The simple answer is, yes. But if you listen to Hillary...

    More than 30 years ago, Congress wisely passed the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. Yet today, many pregnant women still experience unfair and unnecessary challenges on the job. Nondiscrimination has been the law of the land for over three decades, yet, in some workplaces, the standard for treatment of pregnant women has remained in the dark ages. Some are fired or demoted, with no hesitation, when a modest accommodation would allow them to continue to work and support their families. The stories are heart-wrenching and preventable. There's the pregnant woman who was terminated when, in violation of company policy, she started carrying...

    In the early 1970s, the press obsessed about President Nixon's alleged "isolation," especially as the Watergate scandal, which in an objective lookback has to be seen as relative child's play compared to what we're seeing now, unfolded. Proof that Nixon's "isolation" had been a constant media theme in previous months is found in an NBC Nightly News report on May 10, 1973, when a White House staff reorganization was characterized by reporter Richard Valeriani as "Nixon moving to end President('s) isolation." On Fox News's "The Five" on Friday, Democrat Bob Beckel relayed what he said was an anonymous comment by...

    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 lot of time maintaining relationships with governors around the country"...

    President Barack Obama has offered to meet Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis during a visit to Texas after the governor declined a brief meeting when the president arrives in Austin, the White House confirmed on Tuesday.

Jarrett also invited Perry to participate in a session to discuss the border situation with local faith leaders and elected officials in Dallas on Wednesday that has been added to president's schedule. Jarrett's letter, dated Monday, was first reported...
  • Will Obama Back Warren For President In 2016 To Screw Over The Clintons One Last Time?

    President Barack Obama has vowed to throw his complete support behind Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren if she chooses to run for president in 2016, writes Ed Klein in the New York Post. Obama has ordered his political svengali, Valerie Jarrett, to convince Warren, who currently has two years of experience as an elected official, to run against the Clinton machine in 2016. There have been secret meetings, Klein says. The reasons that Obama can’t stand Clinton (either one of them) are both personal and political, the bombshell-loving reporter explains. Personally, the president doesn’t like Bill Clinton because of some of...

    The Blaze ^ | 6/25/2014 | Benjamin Weingarten
    Ed Klein’s new book, “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas” has been making waves for its many salacious details — for example Klein’s assertion that there is a deep rift between Michelle Obama and the president such that they slept in separate bedrooms at Martha’s Vineyard (and continue to do so in the White House). However, the broader purpose of the book is to show that there is a heated battle going on — dating back to the brutal primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election cycle — that continues to manifest itself...

    Obama’s Mini-Me will protect all of Obama’s, ahem, accomplishments.Ed Klein reports that Obama is using Valerie Jarrett to urge Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary in the primary to protect Obama’s transformation of the nation into something of which he and Michelle can be proud.

Here is part of the report, This means Warren: Obama backs challenger to Hillary: "President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen.
