History books will list (if they are honest...or if they are common core) that the first female president of the United States was Valerie Jarrett. After the military intelligence located bin Laden, it was 10 months before we took him out. Why? Valerie Jarrett. Three times, she was able to make Obama stand down and not send our soldiers in. It was Hillary Clinton and a few other advisers who finally got her overruled and now bin Laden is dead.
The timeline of the night of the Benghazi attacks, it was Valerie jarrett alone who gave the stand down order, even though she is not authorized to make such a decision.
5:00PM EST...Reports of an attack on the Benghazi attack were made through secure channels. Leon Panetta and General Dempsey, summoned the president and briefed him on what they knew. After the meeting, Obama joined his family for dinner, then held a scheduled telephone conference call with Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu. Jarrett left the White House living quarters and in a decision known only by her and Obama, made her way to the Situation room with Panetta and Dempsey and a few others.
A critical question that needed to be answered, and the sole military-order that could have launched offensive-actions, neutralizing the Ansar al Sharia terrorists attacks on the Mission (the purpose of which is detailed here) and its subsequent attacks on the adjacent CIA Annex, was the issuance of “Cross Border Authority”, an order that can only be issued by the Commander in Chief, himself. Cross Border Authority was denied.
Now it is being reported that Jarrett was the brains behind the government shut down. She is alleged to have planned the shutdown to cast the blame on republicans to give democrats a chance to win back the House in 2014. It was her idea to insist on no negotiations and to use the terms, hostage, ransom, and terrorists. This decision was made out of politics and not for the good of the American people.
And in case you don't think the shutdown wasn't planned in advance, let me ask you this, "How long would it take to print thousands of signs for the NPS, including the reason given for the park closings and distribute them to all 50 states?" All the parks had them bright and early on the 1st of October.
The Washington Times is reporting that this is a theory by Ed Klein, the author of the book, "The Amateur" that told about President Obama's leadership. The new York Post has confirmed that before the shutdown, Jarrett had several late night meetings with Obama to discuss the shutdown.
"She was the “architect” of that approach", Mr. Klein said. “It was during one of those nightly sessions that Jarrett devised the no-negotiating strategy that Obama has employed in his fight with the GOP over the government shutdown. She convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014.”
“Valerie also came with the idea of using the words ‘hostage’ and ‘ransom’ and ‘terrorists’ against the Republicans.”
Just be glad she can't serve three terms.
