Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during President Obama's tenure, went on the Kelly File last night to talk about the possible manipulation of ISIS intelligence.

    As jihadis murdered more than 100 innocents in Paris, Matt Drudge used his twitter account to focus attention on President Barack Obama’s policy of encouraging Islamic migration into the United States. Since 2009, Obama has admitted more than 250,000 Muslims each year, via family reunification sought by new Muslim citizens and government invites to Muslims fleeing wars in the chaotic Islamic heartland of the Middle East. In 2013, for example, Obama’s government admitted 280,276 people from Muslim-majority countries where the notion of jihad against non-Muslims is a conventional belief. But many migrants have brought their belief in jihad into the...

    White House officials pushed to ban conversion therapy for LGBT youths, pointing to new findings that debunk the therapy. A ban on the conversion therapy for minors was introduced in Congress on Thursday, following a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. "The science rebukes this so-called practice and so do we," White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett told reporters on a call Thursday. The report from the administration includes a consensus from an expert panel held by the American Psychological Association earlier this summer.The panel found that variations in "sexual orientation and gender identity are normal,...

According to the presidents timetable the next step would be the start day of implementation, fixed for Dec. 15.

The Iranians have signed nothing and have no plans for doing so. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)...

    Executive Summary The Iranian nuclear deal is a full capitulation to Irans terrorist mastermind Mullahs, and the latest in a series of betrayals of the American people and allies by the Obama administration. At the highest level of the administration, Barack Obamas Senior Advisor, the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett, prioritized rapprochement with the terror state. Throughout the process and negotiations, she had the backing of billionaire investor (and Obama-backer) George Soros, and his multi-headed network of tax-exempt foundations. Their efforts were driven by deep-rooted anti-Semitism and personal greed. Meanwhile, since the mid-1990s, a small but very connected Iranian lobby (funded, in...

    Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser to President Obama, purportedly saved $200,000 on a Chicago real estate deal by taking advantage of a tax loophole she openly opposes and actively worked to eliminate, according to a watchdog investigation. The investigation, conducted by the Chicago-based Better Government Association (BGA), focused on the 2013 sale of a $160 million luxury high-rise in which Jarrett pocketed more than $1 million in profits. Jarrett served as an executive at a Chicago real estate development firm called the Habitat Company prior to joining the White House as a senior adviser to Obama in 2009. While there,...

    Somehow the conclusion by State Department investigators that Huma Abedin, close associate and friend of former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, was overpaid by some $10,000 as she worked at a State Department job specifically created just for her, does not surprise. Abedin, who is expected to assume the same Rasputin-like role in a Hillary Clinton administration as Valerie Jarrett does for President Obama, has done very well for herself. As the Washington Post reports: The finding -- which Abedin has formally contested -- emerged publicly Friday after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters to Secretary...

Obama used it as a springboard for his political ambitions. He enmeshed himself with the slumlords Valerie Jarrett and Tony Rezko and subsequently Obama got campaign funding while Jarrett and Rezko got wealthy. The residents suffered for it. Back in 2012 I said this would be the blueprint for the Obama Presidency: Grove Parc was the blueprint for the Obama Presidency. Its a shame that no one in...

When Warren Buffet visits the White House for lunch, the table is set for three. She was the one who described President Obama as, just to talented to do what ordinary people do.

    The White House played coy regarding the possibility Hillary Clinton, who was said to be in D.C. for a Center for American Progress meeting that morning, would be stopping by the White House. Only after an unscheduled meeting between Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama, and Susan Rice took place did the White House acknowledge the president and Mrs. Clinton took time to catch up and discuss a range of topics.

    President Barack Obama, through a statement posted Wednesday night on the White House website by adviser Valerie Jarrett, backed legislation that would ban parents from having their children counseled not to be what Jarrett called "LGBTQ+". As part of our dedication to protecting Americas youth, this Administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors, Jarrett said in the White House statement. Conversion therapy generally refers to any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individuals sexual orientation or gender identity, said the statement. Often, this practice is used on minors, who lack the...

    The U.S. and other international negotiators reportedly have agreed to the outlines of an understanding with Iran that would allow for a final phase of nuclear talks. The Associated Press, citing officials, reported on the agreement, while noting that negotiators are still in a dispute over how much to make public. A press conference is about to begin to announce the details, but according to Reuters it looks like Iran has agreed to suspend much of its nuclear program.

    DC political insiders believe that if President Barack Obama truly seeks compromise with Republicans, he should begin by ditching White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett. It goes without saying that Jarrett, the president's longtime trusted confidante, political ally, and family friend, is a divisive figure inside the beltway. Calls for her dismissal have been rampant since the president began his second term -- and even before then. It is a demand still ignored by the White House.

    I lied. I said the other day I wasn't going to write about Hillary's email issue again, but here we are. There was an article over the weekend in the New York Post ? Ok. I know. The New York Post isn't exactly the Tabloid of Record in the Big Apple. As of this writing (Sunday evening) no non-conservative publication - in print or on line - has followed it up. But, I assume there will be a ton of questions for White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest about this at the Monday briefing so when it becomes big news...

    I dont think this NYT Magazine article on Val Jar is going to do much to squelch those persistent Svengali/Rasputin rumors: Excerpts: In his new book, David Axelrod asserts that Rahm Emanuel, when he was chief of staff, was openly uncomfortable with your relationship with the first family. In a town where access is so important, initially it probably made people a little uncomfortable. I think that has faded. I just want to do my job, and part of my job for the president is to be his friend. And friends share everything. Youve been with President Obama from the...

    President Obama's closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, leaked the Hillary Clinton email story to the press -- timed to hit just as she prepares to jump into the 2016 race -- because, well, a lot of reasons, according to an explosive new report in the New York Post. The story, written by Edward Klein, author of "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas," says a bitter and spiteful Jarrett used people outside the Obama administration to spread the story so it wouldn't be traced back to the White House.

    Well, here we are, the ides of March; and needless to say, beware.As every Romanophile knows, today is the day Julius Caesar was done in by his friends and enemies.

    The New York Post is reporting that Valerie Jarrett, one of President Barack Obama's top advisers, leaked details of the story to the press through outside sources hoping it would not trace back to the White House. What's more, the entire thing was timed to become public just as Clinton was planning to announce her candidacy for president.

    Valerie Jarrett says she plans on staying in the White House until the end of President Barack Obamas term. In an interview with The New York Times Magazine published Friday, the presidents senior adviser discussed politics and policy and made clear that she wants to stick around until Jan. 20, 2017. Oh, my goodness, I intend to stay until the lights go off, Jarrett said. Why would I miss a single second of this? Asked whether she ever gets surprised at people describing her influence over Obama in terms similar to those used to describe Vice President Dick Cheneys in...
