New book: Jarrett’s ‘Chicago connections’ led to Obama’s Solyndra visit
from a new unauthorized biography of President Obama called “The Amateur,” continue to trickle out. The latest involves White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

According to the book, written by former New York Times Magazine editor Edward Klein, many of Obama’s most liberal and costly political mistakes stemmed from Jarrett’s advice.

Jarrett reportedly hatched the idea of Obama flying to Copenhagen to “make a dramatic presentation to the International Olympic Committee” for Chicago’s Olympic bid — and also encouraged Obama’s visit to “the Bay area solar company Solyndra” — despite the protestations of Lawrence Summers (who in 2009 warned against the loan guarantee) and others.

Klein implies Jarrett’s pro-Solyndra position was a result of her “Chicago connections” and especially her close ties to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which controlled 35.7 percent of Solyndra. The foundation had made a sizable donation to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett once served as chairwoman and where one of Obama’s best friends, Eric Whitaker, is currently executive vice president. Billionaire George Kaiser, one of Obama’s top 2008 campaign fundraising bundlers, visited the White House no fewer than sixteen times, and Jarrett herself met at least three times with Solyndra lobbyists, who pushed for government assistance.

Regarding the killing of bin Laden, Klein writes that,she privately urged the president not to send in a Navy SEAL team. She told Obama that the raid could turn out to be a replay of 1980’s Desert One, when President Jimmy Carter’s effort to rescue American hostages in Iran backfired so badly that it doomed the Carter presidency.

The book casts former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as a pragmatic adviser, who was frequently overruled by the more liberal Jarret. “[A]t almost every turn,” the book says, “Emanuel was thwarted by Jarrett, who functioned along with David Axelrod as Obama’s ‘political brain.’”

Axelrod and Jarrett were charter members of the Cult of Obama; they had drunk deeply of the Obama Kool-Aid. They made certain that the president remained true to his roots as a big-spending, big-government liberal,” adds Klein.

It never turns out badly for US presidents who commit war crimes. They, and a lot of underlings, are rewarded with pensions, they have airports and more armaments named after them.

It's really mind boggling, isn't it, Miller? Is there a reward program for ex-Mafia too?

Believe it or not, the Obama Gang is already planning the Obama Library cite in Chicago. Supposedly the Gang wants the Library to be on the South Side of Chicago, near the old Pullman RailRoad Car cite, not far from the old potato chip factory. What next?

"library" - that's the place where all the US propaganda is stored, right, Miller? The place where history gets a thorough whitewash.

But actually, you didn't answer my questions;

It's [the antecedent, you know] really mind boggling, isn't it, Miller? Is there a reward program for ex-Mafia too?

If one looks at the Whitey Bulger trial now taking place in Boston, it may look that way. Bulger now has as his attorney, one of the highest paid lawyers in the area ( about $500/hr, as I recall ) .

@Miller,
Whitey Bulger was a piker compared to Bush Jr, Reagan, even Obama. Why do these guys get passes and pensions?

Here's the conundrum. You avoid discussing the huge criminals and then you seem to be knocking a fundamental legal right for this small fry.

What gives, Miller?
