Why, yes, Valerie Jarrett does have a photo of herself being worshipped by figurines on her desk

posted at 2:41 pm on July 1, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via the Blaze, I’m tempted to call this a palate cleanser but I think learning that Jarrett has a sense of humor about her enormous influence over Obama and the federal government actually comes closer to being news.

Frankly, I’m surprised this was on her desk instead of Obama’s.

For just $18.47, you too can wink at your own power. Meanwhile, never forget: Everything, and I mean everything, is a messaging opportunity.

Translation:

Exit question: She’s going to end up replacing Mark Kirk in the Senate eventually, isn’t she?

Um …. having figurines bowing to a picture of yourself in your office really has nothing to do with any sense of humor. You’re a funny guy, allah, you should know this. It takes a pretty twisted person to even think of putting something like that anywhere around them. Seriously. Think about it for a little bit and you’ll see, I’m sure.

Doughboy on July 1, 2014 at 3:11 PM

Popular NBC host Ahmad Rashad said to be ‘dating senior adviser to Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett’

The former Minnesota Viking’s appearances at Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday party earlier this year and at the president’s unveiling of his ‘Mr Bother’s Keeper’ initiative aimed at helping young black man find career paths only further stoked the rumor mill flames.

Whispers grew into chatter though when Rashad was seen playing golf with President Obama on a recent family vacation – Jarrett did not join them on the links but was on the trip, the Times noted.

The paper also mentioned the White House press office ‘strongly objected’ to their report on what may be Washington’s latest power couple, and no photos of them together are to be found anywhere

‘They haven’t gone out in public,’ an unnamed source told New York Post columnist Richard Johnson last November. ‘They are sneaking around.’

Exit question: She’s going to end up replacing Mark Kirk in the Senate eventually, isn’t she?

No; she is going to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton-Aberdin as the Rat Presidential nominee (and thus President). Remember, if the sitting/former VP doesn’t run, the Rats have always gone to somebody who was barely known to even the insiders 4 years prior, and outside those who read the Boss Emeritus’ last book, Jarrett was a national unknown just as Obama was a national unknown in 2004, Kerry was a national unknown in 2000, Bill Clinton was a national unknown in 1988, Dukakis was a national unknown in 1984, Carter was a national unknown in 1972, and Kennedy was a national unknown in 1956.

I could call George McGovern the exception, but his 1968 candidacy (which left him 3rd in delegates) lasted all of 2 weeks and involved courting only the delegates already selected.

Steve Eggleston on July 1, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Yeah, it’s illiterate, all right. I’d like to see this biotch try to master Russian or some other highly inflected language. Idiot.

And the statement is meaningless drivel: Strong women need an economy. Not a strong economy in which to flourish, not a weak economy to improve, just any old economy whatsoever. And what do strong women need “an economy” for? And what about weak women, or strong men or weak men?

Absolute shit-for-brains who can’t fathom how stupid she is.

Never so much as talked with her, but noticed and remembered her because she was unusual looking back then and one of the very few black people on campus.

Always had an entourage everywhere she went, at age 16-17.
Got really, really good grades, teachers loved her.

zoyclem on July 1, 2014 at 4:13 PM

I agree that this is weird and odd. There’s usually some truth in humor, and IMHO this idol worship is how ValJar sees herself. I immediately thought of this old interview from 2009 on Jarrett in which it’s clear that she both enables and directs Obama:

The Ultimate Obama Insider

She said:

“We have kind of a mind meld,” Jarrett told me about Obama. “And chances are, what he wants to do is what I’d want to do.”

IMHO I think she sees herself as the real power behind the throne (as they see the presidency). These people need to be in therapy, not in positions of power.

As much as Obama uses the language of an abusive husband, it seems quite ironic that his life appears to be ruled by strong women.

“I really don’t want to do this, but your inaction is forcing me to do something I don’t want to do. I still love you, and that black eye shows how much I care.”

Wasn’t she born in Iran and thus is ineligible? Not that this was a problem for Barry mind you…

ConstantineXI on July 1, 2014 at 4:04 PM

While she was born in Iran, it was to two American citizens who by no accounts took on another country’s citizenship. Even under the law as it was in 1954, that made her a natural-born citizen regardless of the fact she spent the first several years of her life in Iran and didn’t come home to Chicago until age 6 after a year in London. At this point, there is no evidence that, like Teh SCOAMT, she travelled using a non-American passport.

With that said, her politics disqualify her.

Went to one of those New England prep schools myself at about the same time. Many of my teachers, who were mostly very young and out of college, still suffered from White Guilt. And this was right after many of them started to turn co-ed in the early 1970s.

Del Dolemonte on July 1, 2014 at 5:23 PM

When I said she got really good grades, the teachers loved her, I meant because/em> the teachers loved her.
Grading was subjective and she was favored; this is a blue-blood prep school, not college, and the instructors were uber liberals from New England, mostly Boston I think.
She was political at age 16, not surprised how she ended up.
