Valerie Jarrett, long known in some circles as the “other half of Barack’s brain,” and in other circles as a Chicago slumlord, has her own security detail. Jarrett’s official title is “Senior Advisor to the President.” Here’s the point:
The idea that someone such as Jarrett–who officially plays no role in national security or counter-terrorism–would receive USSS protection would be laughable if it weren’t, in fact, real. It’s like a tale out of the Versailles Court of the Sun King–the sort of anecdote that provokes the peasants, eventually, to revolution. But in the meantime, before the deluge, Jarrett plans to live it up; surrounded by agents with guns, she is queen of her own court. In other words, for pure conspicuous consumption, Jarrett puts her fellow Chicagoan, the laughably self-important Desirée Rogers, to shame.
As an aside, on the issue of who merits government security, we might recall the case of Molly Norris. In 2010, the Seattle-based cartoonist took part in the international “Draw Muhammad” campaign and, after she receiving death threats, the FBI told her that she was on her own. That is, the US government could not–more precisely, would not–protect her. Instead, Norris was advised to leave her job, change her name, and go into hiding. And that’s what she did; what choice did she have? Breitbart
What would the FBI under any other President but Barack Obama have done? Maybe the same. It’s obviously impossible to protect everyone receiving high-profile threats but maybe not. After all, this is post-9/11, post Salman Rushdie, post-Geert Wilders, post-Theo Van Gogh. This administration has the greatest disdain for those accusing Islamists of anything, including threats made in defense of the prophet muhammad.
As Obama’s Senior Advisor, she has advised him and the public that the purpose of Government is to give you a job.
As landlord of a slum area in Chicago, she, Barack and Michelle, almost…almost…convinced the Olympics Committee to come to Chicago. Rio won the gig, but Jarrett had a lot riding on it. It wasn’t a happy time for her. The following is from a previous post (I urge you to read the details of Jarrett’s Grove Parc Project here):
How do you take a housing facility, known as a “preservation for affordable housing,” bearing a $12 million mortgage, designate it for demolition, sell it to the city of Chicago for $1,000.00 and then receive $1 million from a leftist foundation in preparation for the – coming Olympics – which are not coming! Only the “other side of Barack Obama’s brain,” Valerie Jarrett could bring about these miraculous events.
Judicial Watch sued Chicago’s Mayor Daley for withholding information relating to Valerie Jarrett’s “ethics waiver,” which allowed her to abandon White House rules and “spearhead” Chicago’s failed bid for Olympics 2016.
Once Obama’s former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, got back to Chicago and won the Mayoral race, he got right on the disgraceful plight of Grove Parc where federally-subsidized residents lived with rats running the hallways and sewers backed up in kitchens. A $30.5 Million federal grant was given to the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, which was awarded specifically because it included “fixing up” Grove Parc.
Do you follow Ulsterman’s White House Insider? I can’t vouch for it, but many people who pay a lot more attention to these reports than I do (lack of time), believes this whistleblower is genuine. Scroll down the page and read about Valerie Jarrett. Thanks to Backyard Conservative.
