Obama’s Rasputin, Valerie Jarrett, Behind Spygate

By 43 Comments


 
Unless we assume the FBI went completely rogue, it is inconceivable that the deployments of personnel to spy on the Trump campaign and make provocative contact with its lesser members could have occurred without the full knowledge and control of the occupants of the Oval Office.

Obama may claim a scandal-free administration but after Fast and Furious, the targeting of the Tea Party by the IRS, the Benghazi cover-up, Hillary’s emails, to name a few, but spygate is just the latest. I use the plural “occupants” because Barack Hussein Obama many have been nominally the President of the United States, at the heart of very one of these scandals and virtually every administration move was one Valerie Jarrett, who arguably could be considered our first female president.

Jarrett, born in Iran to American parents, has been with the Obamas since her days as Deputy Chief of Staff in the office of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, the elder. She hired Michelle Obama, them Michelle Robinson to fill an opening in the mayor’s office. As Wiikileaks describes the beginning of a long relationship:



In 1991, as deputy chief of staff to Mayor Richard Daley, Jarrett interviewed Michelle Robinson for an opening in the mayor’s office, after which she immediately offered Robinson the job.[33] Michelle Robinson asked for time to think and also asked Jarrett to meet Robinson’s fiancé, Barack Obama. The three ended up meeting for dinner. After the dinner, Michelle took the job with the mayor’s office, and Valerie Jarrett reportedly took the couple under her wing and “introduced them to a wealthier and better-connected Chicago than their own.” Jarrett later took Michelle with her when Jarrett left the mayor’s office to head Chicago’s Department of Planning and Development.

The rest, as they say, is history. Not only did Valerie Jarrett become a mentor to the young Barack Obama, she soon became what some have called Obama’s Rasputin, someone who had more security than our personnel did in Benghazi, a mission she had the power to postpone three times:

She receives more protection than our Libyan ambassador, calls the president by his first name, dines and vacations with the First Family and had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden.

Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House senior adviser and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett reportedly had a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.

“Jarrett seems to have a 24-hour, around-the-clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said in an interview recently with Breitbart news. If Stevens had a similar escort, he’d probably be alive today. Such protection isn’t usually available to senior advisers, but Jarrett is no ordinary adviser. …

Indeed she is not. She arguably has had more influence over Obama than anyone with the possible exception of Michelle Obama herself::

Her influence is shown by an account in Richard Miniter’s book “Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him.”

It relates that at the urging of Jarrett, Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011, Navy SEAL mission. Seems she was concerned about the possible political harm to Obama if the mission failed.

Miniter writes that the president canceled the kill mission in January 2011, again in February and a third time in March, in each instance at the urging of Jarrett.

Miniter cites a source within the Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.

Edward Klein, author of the best-selling book about Obama, “The Amateur,” once asked Obama if he ran every decision by Jarrett, and the president responded, “Absolutely.” A former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor of the New York Times Magazine, Klein describes Jarrett as “ground zero in the Obama operation, the first couple’s friend and consigliere.”…

If Obama ran every decision past Jarrett, the decision to plant spies in the Trump campaign certainly was among the most important. Obama’s legacy was important to Jarrett, perhaps even more important than to Obama himself. She had to preserve it and ensure the fundamental transformation of America continued. If Hillary could not win, Trump must be destroyed.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also finds it inconceivable the spying operation was launched without Jarrett signing off on it:

In a Tuesday appearance on Fox News, Newt Gingrich said that he believed former President Barack Obama and some of his top officials — including Valerie Jarrett — were involved in spying on Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign….

“Presently, someone will figure out to ask what did Valerie Jarrett know and when did she know it?” Gingrich said.”What did Barack Obama know and when did he know it? Because what you’re seeing happen is, on every single level — and this is what happens with really big scandals — they keep on folding and they keep on folding and they keep on folding.

Former Press Secretary Ari Fleischer agrees that such an operation could only have been authorized at the highest level with the full knowledge of Jarrett and Obama:

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said Thursday he believes it’s highly unlikely that President Obama did not know an FBI informant was in the Trump campaign.

“We need to know why did it begin, who authorized it and what role did Barack Obama have. Did he know the FBI had informants there? I’ll guarantee you the answer is yes. No FBI would put informants in another presidential campaign without permission from the White House, including the president,” he said on “Outnumbered.”

Can it be believed that as key players in the Obama administration like Strzok and Page, as well as FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, number 4 at Justice Bruce Ohr, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and many others were liked in a vast criminal conspiracy to keep Hillary Clinton out of prison, and Donald Trump out of the White House, Barack Obama was blissfully unaware of all this? Rather, it can be plausibly argued that he was orchestrating it.

Perhaps not directly or by explicit orders but rather by discussing the threat to his legacy Trump represented with his progressive minions and then simply saying, as crime bosses throughout history have done, “You know what needs to be done. Do it.” Leading Obama’s minions in spygate as with all the other scandals was no doubt one Valerie Jarrett.

This scandal did not occur in a vacuum no more than did the weaponizing of the IRS to target the Tea Party and other conservative groups before Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign occur in a vacuum. The agencies under Obama’s control have been politicized before and used to intimidate and destroy his political opponents

This fish is also rotting from the head. Back in April, 2016, President Obama gave an interview in which he seemed to have foreknowledge that Hillary Clinton would be exonerated for her “carelessness” and did not “intentionally” mishandle classified emails, words that Comey would use just a few months later:

President Obama said Sunday that Hillary Clinton showed “carelessness” by using a private email server, but he also strongly defended his former secretary of state, saying she did not endanger national security, while also vowing that an ongoing FBI investigation into the matter will not be tainted by politics.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Obama seemed to prejudge the outcome of the ongoing inquiry into Mrs. Clinton’s email scandal, and he disputed the notion that any of the emails contained classified information of true importance.

“She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy,” he said. “What I also know is that there’s classified and then there’s classified. There’s stuff that is really top secret top secret, and then there’s stuff that is being presented to the president, the secretary of state, you may not want going out over the wire.”…

“I continue to believe she has not jeopardized America’s national security,” the president said. “There’s a carelessness in terms of managing emails that she has owned and she recognizes. But I also think it is important to keep this in perspective.”

National Review Contributing Editor Andrew McCarthy has long argued that Obama was the ringleader in obstructing justice in the Hillary email investigation:

From the first, these columns have argued that the whitewash of the Hillary Clinton–emails caper was President Barack Obama’s call — not the FBI’s, and not the Justice Department’s… The decision was inevitable. Obama, using a pseudonymous email account, had repeatedly communicated with Secretary Clinton over her private, non-secure email account.

Why would Obama use a fake email account to communicate with Hillary Clinton? Granted, classified communications between a President and a Secretary of State are normal, but not via a fake email account Were they discussing the fix that was in during her email investigation? McCarthy suggests just such a reason:

If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been patent. In any prosecution of Clinton, the Clinton–Obama emails would have been in the spotlight. For the prosecution, they would be more proof of willful (or, if you prefer, grossly negligent) mishandling of intelligence. More significantly, for Clinton’s defense, they would show that Obama was complicit in Clinton’s conduct yet faced no criminal charges.

After Trump’s victory, Jarrett moved in with Obama and Michelle in their new Washington area home with the expressed purpose of organizing the resistance. Obama’s D.C. home was to serve as the nerve center to the resistance to the presidency of Donald Trump. As the Daily Mail reported:

Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.

Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.

And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with  the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.

Jarrett played a vital – if at times low-key – role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.

Her power and influence extended to staffing by the White House to a virtual veto power over foreign policy decisions. Valerie Jarrett undoubtedly had significant input into President Obama’s Munich-like deal with Iran, which kicked the nuclear can down the road to assured detonation over Israel, which Iran continues to threaten to wipe off the map when it is not wishing “death to America”. Her influence over President Obama is legendary:

The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American-born expatriates) is the only staff member who regularly follows the president home from the West Wing to the residence and one of the few people allowed to call the president by his first name.

Noam Scheiber, writing in the November 9, 2014, New Republic, called Jarrett “The Obama Whisperer”, noting her power and influence and the fear she instilled in other staffers:

Even at this late date in the Obama presidency, there is no surer way to elicit paranoid whispers or armchair psychoanalysis from Democrats than to mention the name Valerie Jarrett. Party operatives, administration officials—they are shocked by her sheer longevity and marvel at her influence. When I asked a longtime source who left the Obama White House years ago for his impressions of Jarrett, he confessed that he was too fearful to speak with me, even off the record.

This is not as irrational as it sounds. Obama has said he consults Jarrett on every major decision, something current and former aides corroborate. “Her role since she has been at the White House is one of the broadest and most expansive roles that I think has ever existed in the West Wing,” says Anita Dunn, Obama’s former communications director. Broader, even, than the role of running the West Wing. This summer, the call to send Attorney General Eric Holder on a risky visit to Ferguson, Missouri, was made by exactly three people: Holder himself, the president, and Jarrett, who were vacationing together on Martha’s Vineyard. When I asked Holder if Denis McDonough, the chief of staff, was part of the conversation, he thought for a moment and said, “He was not there.” (Holder hastened to add that “someone had spoken to him.”

Jarrett holds a key vote on Cabinet picks (she opposed Larry Summers at Treasury and was among the first Obama aides to come around on Hillary Clinton at State) and has an outsize say on ambassadorships and judgeships. She helps determine who gets invited to the First Lady’s Box for the State of the Union, who attends state dinners and bill-signing ceremonies, and who sits where at any of the above. She has placed friends and former employees in important positions across the administration—“you can be my person over there,” is a common refrain.

And Jarrett has been known to enjoy the perks of high office herself. When administration aides plan “bilats,” the term of art for meetings of two countries’ top officials, they realize that whatever size meeting they negotiate—nine by nine, eight by eight, etc.—our side will typically include one less foreign policy hand, because Jarrett has a standing seat at any table that includes the president.

Valerie Jarrett’s hold over President Obama is as mysterious as it has proven dangerous. She is Obama’s Rasputin and will have great influence as the former community organizer wages guerilla warfare from his Washington, D.C. bunker, an operatuion which includes spygate.

    Barack Hussein Obama’s pot, cocaine, and vodka fried brain allowed him to assume the role of puppet President while Jarrett and others went about their systematic destruction of this nation. The Muslim brotherhood has been behind Obama since day one and he was chosen because establishment Republicans were to cowardly to oppose a black man.

    Memos out from former FBI Director James Comey show how useful a tool Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura Jarrett, was for the Hillary Clinton campaign while she was employed at CNN.

    Laura Jarrett was CNN’s DOJ connection during all this time!

    CNN, it seems, helped orchestrate the set-up of President Trump when it pressed the then-FBI director to have a meeting with Trump so that the matter could be leaked and the press would have a credible reason to report as news all the otherwise slimy opposition research contained within the Steele dossier.

    Up until then, Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the unverified garbage written by its Moscow sources, was having a bad time getting anyone to print it in the press, and had shopped it around for a year, drawing no buyers.

    The press knew it was unverified garbage and didn’t want to wreck its reputation by going there.

    But then Comey briefed Trump about the existence of the dossier, and suddenly the matter was leakable. And by an interesting coincidence, it was CNN that did the leak.

    @Greg: Not “no evidence,” Greg.
    Let’s do a reading lesson:
    Schiff:

    Nothing we heard today has changed our view that there’s no evidence to support any allegation that the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the Trump campaign, or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols.

    1. Dems (& Schiff) admit that there was an “informant” but refuse to allow the term “spy,” though in this context it means the same thing.

    2. Schiff said Democrats merely said their “view”of the evidence has not changed. He did not say that “no evidence” existed as a matter of undisputed fact — because the evidence is already public.

    3. Schiff said Democrats did not believe “the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the Trump campaign.” He did not deny that a spy, or spies, might have been recruited from within the campaign.

    4. Schiff claims whatever spying (or “informing”) took place was completely justified because it was within appropriate procedures and protocols. Sort of like how Clapper said our spying was for Trump’s own good!

    Schiff uses the shifting goalpost. He only wants to talk about ONE possibility: the FBI placing a spy….
    BUT, his deliberate limit to just that omits the idea of the FBI recruiting a spy….

    When I listen to Schiff all I hear is a man who wants to keep this thing going no matter what.

    I guess he is in a safe congressional district, like Maxine Waters (American astronauts planted a flag on Mars) and Hank Johnson (More troops in Guam will cause it to tip over and capsize.)

    @Nanny G: So, there were no spies and the spies were not doing anything wrong. Yep, that’s liberal-speak. I don’t think Greg could have phrased it better himself.

    2. Schiff said Democrats merely said their “view”of the evidence has not changed.

    Sort of like the liberals who cannot admit Hillary committed perjury even though there is video of it.

    @ Roy, #4:

    Republican who were present at the meeting haven’t disputed what their Democratic colleagues reported, have they?

    Trump’s spy-placed-inside-the-campaign accusation is a load of bullshit—as any attentive observer had already figured out. The FBI had an informant, who simply gathered information that was voluntarily provided, and then reported what he learned.

    Obama didn’t have Trump’s wires tapped in the Trump Tower, either—an earlier, equally bogus allegation.

    Had this happened to the democrat candidate they would be singing a different tune with inflammatory adjectives galore.
    SPY definition: a person who secretly collects and reports information on the activities, movements, and plans of an enemy or competitor.
    synonyms: observe furtively, keep under surveillance/observation, surveil, watch, keep a watch on, keep an eye on.
    They can call it what they want the can deny it, but they wont request a review of the proceedures followed unredacted to determine if they were legal by the SCOTUS, oh no they wouldnt want that.

    Oh. I see. So, no spying, just a paid informant mining information inside the campaign from members and reporting the information back to the organization that hired him. Oh, yeah. That’s totally different from spying.

    Obama didn’t have Trump’s wires tapped in the Trump Tower, either—an earlier, equally bogus allegation.

    So, you base all your trust, support and defense of this criminal regime on semantics? He did, indeed, conduct electronic surveillance (illegally) on people in Trump Towers.

    It’s rumored that when a stray bullet (most likely fired by some black gangbanger) struck the White House, Jarret urged Obama to use it as a pretext to declare martial law and outlaw all gun ownership.

    You only touch the surface of this marriage: Brennan, Hussein, Jarrett and Huma Abedin are all muslim brotherhood members and we know that their ultimate goal has always been to destroy and overthrow our government from within.
    They came very close to fulfilling that agenda!

    Hussein was the Manchurian candidate placed into the white house and Jarrett was his handler.

    Beginning with Hussein’s term there was a plan set in motion titled:
    “The 16 year plan to destroy America”.

    Hussein did his part and HRC was to be the one to finalize the destruction of America.

    During Hussein’s term a large number of stealth muslim brotherhood members were strategically placed throughout government and all into highly sensitive positions dealing with defense and national security. It was by intent!

    Since our intelligence can no longer be trusted its is our military intelligence such as NSA/Rogers (now retired) and DIA that has been working with president Trump to take down that swamp.

    To go into every detail would take lots of space but here was the gist of that plan:
    Fast and Furious was never about tracking guns to cartels – it was the program designed to arm MS13.
    The Awan family were Pakistani spies working in tandem with the DNC/Hussein/Jarrett/Brennan/HRC funneling classified and top secret info to ISIS in Pakistan. Imran and the ISI were accessing the servers of the DNC vi remote in Pakistan.
    The Awans worked in tandem with the white house on Project Cassandra – Hezbollah gun running, drug running and human trafficking among other damaging actions.
    Hillary not only had her personal unencrypted server located at home but also a SCIF server as well. Remember McCabe lives next door to the Clintons and maintained these servers.

    Hillary sold SAP via her server while also engaging in espionage together with Huma et al. Hussein always corresponded with HRC/Huma via these secret servers.

    Uranium one: Owned by longtime friend of the Clintons Canadian billionaire – Frank Guistra – was involved in selling uranium to enemies as well as the deep state. The uranium mines are located in Kazakhstan. Despite implicating Putin having purchased this uranium he had no part in any of it but rather a small group in Rosatom – Russia’s own deep state.

    The uranium was trafficked via EU, Pakistan and Iran into the deep state facilities located in Syria. There they were working on nukes with the full knowledge of Hussein/HRC/Kerry/Brennan et al.

    The war drums against Russia have been beat now since their entry into Syria to stop the coup against Assad ergo the location choice of nuclear weapons.

    Hussein opened a shell company – Iron Eagle – in neighboring Jordan as the hub to facilitate the black op transfer of uranium into Syria. McCain was the point man to receive and transport it into the deep state and Iranian nuke facility.
    That shipment was intercepted by our spec ops/Marines catching McCain in the act so-to-speak.

    Before going further remember they all thought “She would not lose”!

    The final and end goal? THE SUM OF ALL FEARS: Nuking the US and framing Russia/Putin as the one culpable for that attack. The plan called for a ‘controlled war/deaths’.

    It was to finally declare war against Russia and Syria after their false flag nuking parts of the US.

    That is at the core of their plan to destroy America to achieve their NWO.

    “They thought she would not lose” ergo all the lose ends we are seeing unraveling as this goes deeper and deeper.

    Taking out the swamp here and abroad of all who conspired with this is the president and our military men and women’s goal.

    How do we know about that plan? A team of patriots with top secret clearance have been giving us drops out of necessity to understand what was afoot and what was planned for the American people.

    @Greg:

    Yes. It is, in fact, totally different from what Trump claimed it to be. That would be the point. It was another of his purposeful misrepresentations—less charitably known as a lie.

    Well, no… it isn’t. Obama was spying on Trump. Now, what is highly significant was that, though being done to “protect Trump”, Trump was not notified. Notifying Trump would have eliminated all future suspicion and if it leaked out that we were on the lookout for Russian’s in Trump’s campaign… well, that would pretty much eliminate all doubt about Trump, wouldn’t it? Kind of like the operation run on Congress which has pinpointed Schiff as a prime leaker.

    MOST significant is that no spying was done on the Hillary campaign, who had already proven vulnerable to hacking AND was the supposed target of Russian interference.

    So, the propaganda mouths sent forth to redefine the operation is proven to be lies. That raises the question of WHY the lies. Obviously, it is to protect the “legacy” of the head of this criminal enterprise. Of course, the lies are pretty lame (protect Trump, indeed!) but this wasn’t supposed to be necessary. Hillary was supposed to win and all this was supposed to be flushed down the tubes with the rest of the Constitution.

    @cali: I don’t buy in to some of that (alright… MOST of it) but there is no question Obama favored the Muslim Brotherhood and did all he could to allow them to spread their influence throughout the Middle East and North Africa. From the support for the weakening of many governments in the region, though unsavory, we got the spread of ISIS. Yet another of Obama’s great foreign policy successes.

    And they try to give Trump advice!

Obama has been protecting Hillary (the despicable criminal) and spying on Trump through a myriad of methods for almost 3 years now. You are going to have to come to the bitter conclusion one day that all your fantasies of kicking Trump out of office and Hillary or Obama somehow stepping in and returning the country to the liberal utopia it was when Obama was President (race riots, low economic growth, high unemployment, nations all around the world laughing at us and taking advantage of the America-hating moron in charge) is NEVER going to materialize.

    Because you were at the center of the campaign under investigation, you nincompoop. It was your campaign, and you who hired on the people under suspicion.

    @Randy: They grovel at the feet of the Clinton’s even though Hillary showed her disgust with military members each time she encountered them and Bill wrote he “loathed” the military. But, they’re liberal and the liberals that support them will surrender all dignity and freedom for the promise of the free stuff paid for by the working people. Look at how Obama used veterans as nothing but a political bullet point, letting the VA rot in an administrative quagmire. Liberals and their supporters, by definition, hate the military.

    @Greg:

    Because you were at the center of the campaign under investigation, you nincompoop.

    And THAT was fully because of politics. Nothing suspicious, nothing criminal, no collusion, just a political opponent that Obama used the power of the federal government to try and defeat. As usual, he failed.

    Hillary had the deep and suspicious Russian (and Middle Eastern) ties, but Obama ignored her campaign, directing the DOJ to provide her cover for criminal activity.

    Anyone that defends this un-American, anti-Constitutional crime spree is the nincompoop. And, much, much worse.

It is unimaginable that someone that claims to be such a “patriot” is supporting those who tried and are still trying to undermine our Constitution. Didn’t they supposedly pledge to DEFEND it?

    @Greg: It was Obama that declared it a hoax.. Obama dismissed the hack and the leaked emails as “not very interesting” and lacking “explosive” revelations. He puzzled as to why it was an “obsession” by the news media despite the knowledge that the Russians were responsible.(never proven)
    He should have asked the FBI and CIA or Valarie if he was puzzled. Why did he or she have Merkels email hacked and spy on other allies?
    A reminder no election machines were hacked no votes changed but it is suspected the DHS tried, as they seemed to be he source of hacks . Georgia 10 attempts, Indiana, Idaho 20 states were involved with attempted hacks but DHS unlike Georgia couldnt track the source.

    @kitt: I am still waiting to see the ads that changed my mind about Hillary and made me vote against her. Also still waiting on the evidence that clears Hillary and incriminates Trump or any on his campaign team. I guess the waiting for that will go on forever.

    Unlike liberals who believe that if veterans or military personnel support Trump, regardless of their service they are “not honorable” (yet believe Bergdahl WAS), I appreciate the service and dedication of all in the military and our veterans. None of that has anything whatsoever to do with how I regard their anti-American support of those who work harder to weaken and destroy our country than supporting and defending it. One thing I have learned, military service does not preclude become a liberal and supporting politicians who absolutely hate the military and those who serve. I don’t understand how someone can have such adoration for their service support the party and politicians that hates them. I have also lost all tolerance with those who come on here with big talk and lots of accusations but don’t have the guts to defend their views or admit their error.

    Those who falsely claim military service also turn my stomach and are the lowest form of scum. I have been offered military discounts numerous times and turned them down; I couldn’t live with that. I was never called up in the draft and, though it would, obviously, be easy to claim I served, I am honest about it. I have seen some, though, who can live more easily with lying.

    @Randy:

    Did you bash Clinton and Obama for not serving or are you only selective in your bashing?

    The answer is obvious. Two sets of rules and standards- one for them and one for the rest of us.

    He supported her by coming here every day tying to convince people to not vote for Trump because she was a lock in for president. As was revealed in Wikileaks, that was a strategy of her campaign- cite polls that made her victory look inevitable in order to discourage people from voting.

    He also claimed he was voting for the attorney for aardvarks but now says he voted for Webb. It seems, with liberals, you never know what to believe.

    @Deplorable Me: If you are referring to Clifton Roberts I’ve told you many times he is NOT an attorney.
    I support his causes including animal rights and a clean environment==this guy Pruitt is a piece of work–but on election day went for pro military Jim Webb.

    @Randy: I supported Jim Webb on election day—not my first write-in vote and probably not my last.
    Thank you for your service Col. on this Memorial Day—-you too AV
