Valerie Jarrett - Obama's Rasputin
During the reign of Czar Nicolas II, the shadowing adviser Grigori Rasputin provided the czar with advise that caused one disaster after another. Rather than take actions for the best of his country, Nicolas made poor decisions under Rasputin's influence that in the end cost him his life. Rasputin qualifications had nothing to do with his understanding of government or foreign relations. He was a trusted family friend.
Obama has his own Rasputin in the guise of family friend Valerie Jarrett. The Iranian born Persian speaking Jarrett is Obama's mirror. She once hired Michelle Obama and she was mainly a Chicago pol prior to her White House appointment. Her family had extensive ties to communist associations and individuals. She had no Washington or foreign policy experience when appointed to be Obama's senior adviser. What she does have is the president's ear. She makes sure that her view is the last one he hears. And she tells him what he wants to hear, not what he needs to hear.
All the disastrous policies and decisions made by Obama from cramming Obamacare down the throats of congress to cramming the Iran deal down the throats of congress where supported by his Rasputin Jarrett. Jarrett was for pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq prematurely and abandoning his original marriage position to go whole hog for the LGBT agenda. She even successfully got Obama to cancel the attack on Osama Bin Laden three times!
More than one Obama adviser has griped that Jarrett has undermined and opposed their advise to the president. As the ultimate yes-man to every bad Obama decision, Jarrett has pushed Obama along in his anti-American positions.
Obama has been entirely capable of making bad decisions on his own, but Jarrett's role has made sure that no one has been able to successfully challenge Obama to make a better decision.
Putin is a foreign enemy, but in Jarrett, we have a Rasputin who has damaged our nation from within.
