Valerie Jarrett’s Bin Laden Raid Veto

Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the book, "Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers."


Pages: 1 2

So-called progressives generally don’t care a whole heck of a lot about defending America; they would prefer to blow the nation’s defense budget on welfare. Leftists would rather send soldiers abroad as armed social workers bearing care packages instead of as warriors defending America’s freedoms.

And there’s no doubt that Jarrett, who seemed to function as de facto Secretary of Defense last year, is, like Obama, a hardcore leftist with radical roots.

Like Obama and Bill Ayers, Jarrett lived within the precincts of Hyde Park, Chicago, the home of many elite leftists. She worked for Chicago’s first black mayor, the radical Harold Washington, whose election was cheered by leftover 1960s radicals. After Washington died in 1987, she worked for the new mayor Richard Daley. Jarrett later landed a job at Habitat, which was headed by Daniel Levin, cousin of two left-wing politicians, Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and Congressman Sander Levin (D-Mich.).

In 1983 she was married to Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of the Chicago Sun-Times columnist Vernon Jarrett. Her father-in-law wrote upbeat articles about communist members of the artistic community including Paul Robeson, Langston Hughes, and W.E.B. DuBois. He also served on a union publicity committee alongside Frank Marshall Davis, an important early influence on the young Barack Obama. And as Paul Kengor notes in his new book, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, Vernon Jarrett was also a member of the Illinois Council of American Youth for Democracy, the youth wing of the Communist Party USA.

Jarrett is obsessed with racial issues. She has helped to promote Al Sharpton’s radical agenda, according to Obama administration staffers. She pushed Obama’s campaign staff in 2008 to be more aggressive on racial matters, telling them they needed to be less “gun-shy on race issues.” After that, according to a campaign source, moving forward Obama “made it very clear to us that we were just a bunch of white people who didn’t get it.”

Once ensconced in the Obama White House, Jarrett successfully lobbied to weaken rules preventing officials from meeting with lobbyists. The reason given for the flip-flop on lobbyist meetings was that the rule would prevent other “legitimate” issues raised by “civil rights organizations whose directors happen to be registered lobbyists – [from being] heard.” Of course, to Jarrett so-called civil rights organizations are groups like ACORN, Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition, and the radical Service Employees International Union.

Jarrett pressed Obama to create the office of Chief Diversity Officer within the Federal Communications Commission. The post came to be occupied by Hugo Chavez admirer Mark Lloyd, a Saul Alinsky adherent and former senior fellow at the Center for American Progress who wants to put conservative talk radio out of business.

Jarrett also helped bring in law professor Cass Sunstein as Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration. The fey legal theorist has said Americans should “celebrate tax day,” and that animals ought to be allowed to sue people.

Without Jarrett’s advocacy, it seems unlikely that the self-described “communist” revolutionary Van Jones would have become green jobs czar in the Obama White House in 2009. At a leftist confab Jarrett got positively goofy about Jones.

“We were so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House,” Jarrett said. “We were watching him…for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that, and we have all that energy in the White House.”

What exactly was Jones doing out in Oakland, California?

He was leading a Maoist group called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM). The vehemently anti-American collective held a vigil in Oakland mourning the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world on the night after Sept. 11, 2001.

That’s what Jarrett, now arguably the most powerful woman in the world, holds in high regard.

Imagine what she’ll help Obama do to America if he wins a second term.

    When Obama Killed Bin Laden, he killed himself ! He cut his own throat and cut himself off from his allies in the Arab World. Obama, is on his own and on his own he Can't Win . He is done.

    • Amused

      Yea , which proves all the bullshiiit about him being a muslim , and waning to destroy America , your whole package of partisan rhetoric and memes , is just more bullshheeet just like this phony op-ed .

  • ★FALCON★

    Given that everything out of the Obama administration is a lie – I tend to believe the VP of Stratfor Fred Burton who said bin Laden was taken to a Delaware military base. Only the incompetent Obama would give order to kill the most valuable intelligence asset since Hitler – makes no sense, even for the pedantic Obama.

    There are too many influences pulling the strings in Obama's administration..Jarrett is just one of them.

    The phrase “Global War on Terror” is as much a politically correct euphemism as the phrase “America’s Overseas Contingency Operations”. This is a war against Islamic fascism. Call a spade a spade

  • κατεργάζομαι

    Obama sent an ambassador to Syria — over Congress's express objection. Bashar Assad began slaughtering 20,000 of his people.

    Clinton acquiesced when Islamist Turkey banned Israel from taking part in NATO exercises and top counter-terror forums.

    Russia's leaders returned to brutal autocracy, invading Georgia, threatening Ukraine and Poland, assassinating political foes, and opposing the U.S. wherever possible. But Obama-Clinton think they can charm Russia into moderation.

      It's a strange twist to record Clinton and Obama as foreign policy "soul mates". Certainly neither were / are "hawks", but I'd never demean Clinton by lumping him with Obama in the area of foreign policy. I don't believe Clinton saw our Middle East policy as having to support the ideology of Hamas, et al — but it certainly appears that this is the case with Obama.

    C'mon Vadum , what utter tripe is This ? The man launched more drones in his first year than the previous Admin . launched in years . Presidents all have advisors pro and con for such operations , the idea is to have all opinions , and your peddling the idea that it was this womans view that prevailed ? During the Cuban missle crisis several of Kennedy's advisors favored an all out invasion , NEVER knowing that the nukes in Cuba were ready to go at a moments notice . How purposely presumptious can you be ?
    Just more partisan B.S.

    • Jim_C

      I love when they try to characterize a process every single president goes through–the conflicting advice, the pulls of various interests–as something corrosively unique to whomever is their opponent.

      Mr. Bush had neoconservatives on one side, realpolitikers on the other. By his second administration, Bush wised up and stopped listening to Cheney and his crew, and got new faces in. How soon we forget!

      If anything ,Vadum did NOT even begin to scratch the surface re: Jarrett.

      • Kufar Dawg

        I wonder if OBL's was sacrificed for the greater good of Islam. OBL is a martyr now, a hero to the mujahedin and BHO has his triumph for the 2012 election and the war on terror is now over (HA). I wonder if the death of OBL has resulted in more volunteers to the cause of Al Qaeda.

      6. Impersonators will be banned immediately.

      Do you want to make acomment on Valerie Jarret? Or do you insist on violating Rule #2?

  • watsa46

    It appears that for the Afro American from Chicago, the liberation of the USA requires the implementation of a communist philosophy. Would "black" communism be different from "white" communism!

    • Stan Lee

      Maybe it is. Look at the Communist-dominated nations in Africa. They don't appear to be successful at anything but murdering Christians in their populations.

    • mlcblog

      No. No difference. It is all evil and as such is allowed, even encouraged, to bend the truth.

  • Steve Chavez

    Another person EXPOSED IN MY "CIRCLE OF COMMUNISTS" that surround Obama. Even with all these ties that Jarrett has, I am still more fearful of MICHELLE.

    There have been reports of Valerie and Michelle playing the power trip game to see who's the more powerful in the White House and the most important adviser to Obama. Wouldn't you just love to hear the bedtime stories between the Obama's?

    YOU ALSO CAN'T TELL ME THAT HER TIES TO THE CPUSA, a Party that calls for the "Overthrow of the United States through force if necessary," ISN'T LEARNING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY SECRETS THAT THEY THEN PASS ON TO PUTIN AND CHINA!

    Being that the Communist Party USA has infiltrated the Democrat Party, and who knows, the Republican Party too in the ultimate deception, that voting out EVERY DEMOCRAT would be a good start in getting rid of the Communist influence in our government. From there, we need to weed out all the Closet Communists in the State Department and every government department, the people they hired, and then on to the universities we go.

    What good does it do to take the Oath to defend the Constitution when you seek to destroy it?

    • CHOI

      @Steve:
      Considering their personal history,it's more that Jarrett and Michelle TOGETHER do the influencing.
      Jarrett is too shrewd to try to come between a husband and wife.
      Chicagoans KNOW how SLICK she is.
      Her REAL rise is former Mayor Richard M. Daley's doing.

    • mlcblog

      They are all in it together, fighting for "the cause," as their parents did.

  • Stan Lee

    Obama comment noted; "She's like family." So was the old "uncle" he identified a few years ago, Reverend Wright.

  • Stan Lee

    Today's "bin Laden raid veto" reinforced why there's so many reasons to vote OUT Obama. When we eject him from the White House, advisors and agitators like Jarrett, Napolitano, Axelrod, Sunstein, Jones, Holder, and many more will be sent packing too. We can't get rid of them fast enough!

    Why ? Because Obama finally wacked him ? Or the ridiculous B.S. Vadum has put under your nose . And ain't it funny that most of the "alleged sources " …are always unidentified sources ????

    I guess anything will fly in the echo-chamber eh ? Even the Birthers still cling to their pile of totally refuted claims .

    • Jim_C

      Several things stick in their craw: Obama ordering the kill on bin Ladin. Obama slaughtering terrorists and devastating al Qaeda leadership. Obama able to make some sort of health care reform even happen in the first place, when they clearly would have done nothing. Obama dragging his feet on banking reforms.

      And on the knuckle-dragging clown end of the spectrum:Obama having no interest in restricting 2nd Amendment rights. Obama being born in the U.S. Obama not declaring martial law.

      These things mess with their delusional narrative of a closet Islamist/commie dismantling the republic and coming for their guns.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        Obama has been doing visible things that allow al qaida to gain operational strength.

            Stinks like old sock, but flops around like a straw man. Tough call…. hmmm……

        • Jim_C

          From the article:

          "The report cited 2011 as a "landmark year" due to the deaths of Osama Bin Laden and other key al Qaeda operatives, and noted that the terrorist group's "core," largely based in Pakistan, had been weakened.

          "I would not say that we are less safe now than we were several years ago, because the al Qaeda core was the most capable part of the organization by quite a lot, and was capable obviously of carrying out catastrophic attacks on a scale that none of the affiliates have been able to match," Coordinator for Counterterrorism Dan Benjamin said Tuesday at a briefing introducing the report.

          I would think, with all the regional uprisings, that Islamist groups would be on the rise. The hornet's nest gets whacked, the hornets start buzzing around. But foreign policy-wise, you need to focus. You can't swat at every hornet. Obama made sure to devastatingly swat the hornets that stung us on 9/11.

          As opposed to, say, starting a nation-building operation in a country that did not attack us on 9/11.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I beg to differ, based on reality.
            Muslim brotherhood now has control of Egypt and Al Qaida has a toehold in Libya. Yemen, Somalia, and all across Africa militants are in control more now than before, and they are operationally either part of or claim affiliation with al qaida. Thanks to obama.

    If I recall correctly, immediately — like in the middle of the night — when the announcement of UBL's demise was broadcast, hundreds of youths (looked like college types) descended outside the White House to express approval. I wonder if those inside the White House took a cue from that and remarked to themselves, "Screw the not spiking the ball stuff, we can and got to get some real mileage from this!"

    This is just to show WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP Vadum is selling you gullible lackeys .
    The doctor who was just sentenced to 33 yrs for treason, for aiding the CIA , by conducting the false " innoculation program " did so in March – April 2011 . Obama ordered the mission to be executed May 2 .So from the start of the Doctors job to the actual taking out of Bin laden a period of 2 months maximum .
    The purpose of this Dr.'s job was to CONFIRM bin Ladens presence BEFORE ordering a mission , violating "lol… an alleged ally's" sovereignty , and KILL Bin Laden .
    And who in the heck is gonna believe , besides you SUCKERS here , Vadums poorly constructed B.S. story that Jarret 'VETOES " ANYTHING . And Obama does nothing without her apprpoval . Do all you gullible fools really believe what Vadum is feeding you ?

    And the MSM false prophets sold us this set of poisonous lies.

    Vadum embellishes his poorly constructed B.S.- now turning into an overt LIE , of course having left a back door exit for himself by qualifying " according to an upcoming book [ in the previous quote] So Vadums nose grows longer : quote "Apparently Obama had to be dragged kicking and screaming into action against bin Laden. Miniter’s evidence suggests the president took a long time to steel his resolve, hemming and hawing over the life-and-death decision, putting it off repeatedly over a four-month period " -endquote

  • http://ajl.smugmug.com/911 Winston Smith

    Whatever bin Ladin was guilty of, he should have, if possible, been tried and convicted first. Then executed if that is what his crimes warranted. But publicly tried. Execution without due process (or indefinite detention, -as Americans may themselves now be subjected to with Obama’s signing of the NDAA) are the hallmarks of dictatorship! Fact is, that whatever Osama bin Lladin was guilty of, rigging 3 skyscrapers in lower Manhattan with explosives, could not have been part of it. The facts of 9-11 speak for themselves. They are many well documented facts that all point in one direction: demolition. As difficult as it may to believe the facts speak louder than one’s own incredulity. There are well over than 1000 thousand building professionals at this point who have signed the petition at Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth because it will be obvious to anyone who looks: we have not been told the whole truth about 911.

    Ad hominem attacks do not address the issues and ‘condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.’ -albert einstein.

Mr. Vadum proceeds to fill in some of her political bio on page two, and yet as that brief and jagged synopsis strays into three paragraphs, one realizes that she is actually pretty accomplished politically and no hack, unlike Mr. Vadum who simply drinks heavily at meet and greets, hangs creepily on the shoulders of disgusted looking women and tries desperately to get guest hosting minutes on late night news programs in between the infomercials.

    Further research on Ms. Jarrett shows that she is the daughter of an internationally renowned American pathologist and an award-winning early-childhood education professor and author. Ms. Jarrett earned a Juris Doctor 31 years ago, and worked for 20 years for the Mayor of Chicago and various municipal offices. She has no reported history of corruption or financial mismanagement. Her only "crime" apparently is being a friend of the President and his wife's old boss. Mr. Vadum tries to link her, predictably, to Bill Ayers under the premise that everyone who is Barack Obama's friend manufactured bombs in the 1960s and worships Saul Alinsky.

    This exposé is therefore a work of drivel.

      Yes, It is true that Val's parents are/were very accomplished people. I remember Dr. Bowman very fondly, and Barbara Bowman was also a very sympathetic person. As for Val, she IS very intelligent and accomplished. Unfortunately, it is possible for a person to be accomplished and yet still be corrupted by political power. Sadly, I think this has happened to Val. For me, this is something I personally regard as depressing, because I actually cared about her as a person. In her role as consigliere to Obama she has contributed greatly to the decline of this country, and I can't forgive her for that.

    This totally rings true, but I want to see/know the author's sources. How does one know these things to be so, in fact? Do we trust the journalist because we know him to be upstanding? Just aking, no agenda, an academic question. Help me somebody!

    Leftists in my experience are incredibly secretive when fashioning their displays for the public.

    p.s. I am thrilled to see the evil Jarrett exposed.

    Does Valerie Jarrett have any security clearances? If not isn't it kind of strange that she
    would be given access to information that could easily be compromised and result
    in OBL's escape?

    It's so strange to read about Val. We were playmates back in Iran in the early 1960's. She was a sweet, crybaby sort of kid who'd break down in tears sometimes when I didn't feel like playing with her. It's been some 20 years since I last saw her at a small dinner party, where she came with her then 8-year-old daughter and with her parents, James and Barbara Bowman. All I can say now is that whatever affection I once had for her is ancient history. Reading about what Val has metastasized into these days, I am reminded of something my own mother once said to me in a joking way when I was in my 20's: "You were such a beautiful child, boy. You grew up to be monster!." Only in Val's case, it's not a joke.

    Seal team 6 has new work and we can wonder who is as bad as Bin Laden. This guy brings down
    three major buildings and others are bringing down the entire Nation. It is a good thing we
    change via elections, it has it's drawbacks and brings the red line of danger real close but
    I hope in and believe America will clean out the Communist influence in Washington. America
    must sober up, I do not want my posterity to have to fight Islamists and Communists
    in the streets of America……………………………..William

    In the US. O. Hussein B. took all the credit of killing O. Bin L. while in the Islam world, he blamed it's Seal team and a Pakistan doctor that did it by revealing their identities.

  • J. Clark

    Barry Hussein Soetoro, a Marxist/Muslim, loves Jarrett, as she was born in Iran and is leader of the Hate-America movement in Wash. DC. Barry and his commUNist buddies have got to go in Nov.

    Most likely, the Valerie Jarrett triple veto was not in the movie, nor in Panetta’s book. It does seem that Miniter ended up saying that Jarrett opposed the raid out of fear that had it failed it would have hurt Democrats in the next election. This, of course, underlines how electoral and political considerations so often seem to be the primary Obama motive. Now the White House has even publicly admitted that the President postponed executive action on amnesty out of electoral and political considerations.
    Recall that Susan Rice has long felt compunction and guilt and a desire for repentance for circulating a memo in the Clinton White house warning people not to use the word “genocide” about the genocide that was occurring in an African nation (Powell did use that word during the Bush administration). Her fear was that since international law requires nations to act in a case of genocide, the Democrats might be hurt in the next elections, because President Clinton might be attacked for failing to act against admitted genocide. There are also indications that Rice and Powers and Hillary Clinton favored action in Libya because of guilt about the previous failure to speak and act against the genocide.
