Stop Valerie Jarrett — with copious sunshine (repeat applications as necessary)

by CynthiaYockey on October 29, 2009

Thursday morning Adam Bitely of NetRightNation announced a new blog devoted to pouring sunshine onto Obama mentor and current Obama advisor, Valerie Jarrett, called

I think Michelle Malkin has the most comprehensive coverage on Valerie Jarrett, both in her new book, Culture of Corruption, and at her blog:

Here is a perfect example of why I wrote Culture of Corruption (officially out today [July 27, 2009] — I’ll be launching on Hannity radio and TV.)

Over the weekend, the New York Times published a massive, 8,100-word profile of the Obamas’ best friend and Chicago crony, Valerie Jarrett.

The author, Robert Draper, laments that “[o]ver a four-month period of reporting, I struggled to understand Jarrett’s ineffable raison d’etre in the Obama White House.”

Four months. More than 8,000 words. Several glossy, high-fashion photos.

And he still couldn’t figure out that the “ineffable raison d’etre” of Valerie Jarrett, a Daley-trained politico and consigliere, is power.

Four months. More than 8,000 words. Several glossy photos.

But not a word about Jarrett’s involvement in Michelle Obama’s patient-dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett sat on the board of directors.

And not a word about Jarrett’s involvement in Grove Parc — the Chicago slum complex managed by Jarrett’s company, Habitat, Inc. To this day, Jarrett refuses to answer questions about the dilapidated housing development …. [shown below]:

Ms. Malkin also has a great round-up on a CNN anchor (!) confronting Jarrett about her attacks on Fox News.

So it’s no surprise that Ms. Malkin was one of the first off the blocks to join the blog coalition.

I just want to add that the sight of the Grove Parc roofs falling in is the clearest possible image of the sociopathy of both Obama and Jarrett. They profited from the trust and money reposed in them to create decent housing for people who were poor and vulnerable. Instead of fulfilling that trust, they betrayed it and made those people’s lives far worse than they were before. I would bet that some of those tenants died as a result. Doug Ross quoted and interspersed more photos from a post written during the presidential campaign in July 2008:

The squat brick buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who can’t afford to live anywhere else.

But it’s not safe to live here.

About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale – a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama’s close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama’s constituents suffered…

Grove Parc represents Obama’s true character as a “community organizer” and state senator. Since this story surfaced in July 2008, but was not widely reported — and apparently actively suppressed in the July 2009 New York Times profile of Jarrett mentioned above — it also tells us the true character of the newspapers and cable news channels that either suppressed the story or were unaware of it, what with their preoccupation with publishing only Obama’s talking points du jour.

I had to appeal to our state senator, Ida Ruben (D), many times in the course of caring for my late life partner in order to get state government offices and state-funded county offices to do their jobs properly. Sen. Ruben literally saved our lives again and again, thanks to her commitment to her constituents and the zeal of her staff. So when I tell you that Obama’s corruption and laziness killed people when he was a state senator, I am speaking from personal experience of what vulnerable constituents need their state senator to do. Rising to the presidency of the United States has not improved Obama, it has given vastly more scope for his corruption and laziness to betray vulnerable people to their deaths, aided and abetted, as always, by Valerie Jarrett.

Jarrett was drooling to offload her slumlord properties to the Olympic Committee. Karma. Not that the Chicago machine will do anything to her, now that she has no benefactor she can strong-arm.

I think you are right. I wonder if the Olympic Committee saw the photos of her current properties and decided they didn’t want to have an Olympic Village built under her direction.

Richard McEnroe,

Actually, in your first comment’s link, Valerie Jarrett really nailed the part of the Trick. I see how the link in your second comment goes more in the direction of a treat — thanks for thinking of me!

Well, let’s face it, it’ll confuse the hell out of the Rule 5 game, too. That could be part of the trick…*g*

What I don’t understand is why poor folks in big cities keep voting for these Democrats. I’m just a pore dumb redneck who tries hard to stay out of cities but I do have to go to them sometimes.

The poorer sections of the big cities in america have been Democrat since long before FDR. The poor have got the same promises every election. Things never improve. As Jarret’s little fiefdom shows, the people making the promises get rich, the poor mostly stay that way, for generations.

Yet the Obamas and the Jarrets are the role models, not the Afrocity types who, by sheer drive and determination, rise out of those slums .

And there is so much opportunity out here, and so much help for those who don’t want to die in those stinking slums. We live in a country where it is raining soup and the Jarrets and Obamas hold giant pans over everyone to stop it. I’ll shut up now because when I think of those people I want to just type a long string of clever combinations of ugly words.

Thank you. I just want to direct my other gentle readers to Afrocity’s blog, which is listed in my newsfeed column. She is insightful and courageous and well worth your time.
