Thanks, Newt

Newt Gingrich is still stinging from failing to win the GOP nomination last time.

It's not surprising then he gets bitter, clinging to ACORN or SEIU or Working Families Party candidates who are opportunists just like him or anti-conservative sentiment or anti-liberty sentiment as a way to explain his frustrations.

The crafty Obama and Big Labor operatives have DeDe playing the spoiler in NY-23 on Tuesday for a Dem pick-up. If it doesn't work out, no loss. It was a good play. DeDe's husband is a labor union official after all.

Watch a failed Republican policy of the past separate from the GOP base.

Getting to know Valerie Jarrett

Stop Valerie Jarrett is a project of Americans for Limited Government and NetRightNation.com

via NetRightNation:
Who is Valerie Jarrett? It's a question gaining increasing interest in the conservative blogosphere. And even some members of the mainstream media are starting to take a second look at this woman who has earned the sobriquet "Obama's eminence gris."

Indeed, in the Obama household, Valerie Jarrett is considered nothing less than a member of the family. Asked about his unique relationship with the shadowy Ms. Jarrett, Obama told the London Independent's Robert Draper, "Well, Valerie is one of my oldest friends. Over time, I think our relationship evolved to the point where she's like a sibling to me... I trust her completely."

Added Michelle to the Chicago Tribune’s Jodi Kantor, “She’s always one of the people he and I talk to when we’re about to make a move.”

So, who is this pseudo sister, this Obama alter-ego, this sounding board with sign-off stature who has become the power behind the Obama throne?

Simply put: Valerie Jarrett is a radical leftist with a rapacious appetite for power and wealth. In Richard Daley’s Chicago, she was the turn-to person for flexing muscles, padding pockets, and covering tracks. In Barack Obama’s Washington, she is the single advisor most responsible for both for originating and orchestrating his most brazen attempts to impose what many see as a socialist regime upon the American people.

Policy decisions and key appointments, brickbats and bouquets, the mendicants and the mercenary – they all come through Valerie Jarrett’s office.

As the New York Times recently wrote: “Jarrett is also the president’s closest friend in the White House, and it is not lost on her colleagues that when senior staff meetings in the Oval Office break up, she often stays behind with the boss.”

Working Families Fraud

Widening SEIU political scandal in #1 labor-state

A new website - Nutbusters.org is exploring the relationship between ACORN-SEIU and the so-called 'Working Families Party.' WFP is being investigated for voter fraud in NY-23.

That's the same district where DeDe Scozzafava, the spouse of a labor official, is running for Congress as a Republican. Of course, she is backed by Big Labor, Bertha Lewis' ACORN-WFP ... and Newt Gingrich and the NRCC.
via Nutbusters: The scandal-ridden organization ACORN has direct ties to the Working Families Party here in New York. From its leadership to sharing office space, it is now evident that the WFP political party is wedded to the corrupt group – something that should be immediately investigated by the Attorney General, reported on by the media and of grave concern to NY residents.

The fact: Working Families Party = ACORN

The Working Families Party is not about working people or families and it isn’t really a party. The WFP is a wholly owned subsidiary of ACORN. Bertha Lewis co-chair of the Working Families Party is the Executive Director of New York ACORN. New York ACORN leader, Steven Kest was the moving force in forming the party and WFP headquarters are located at the same address as ACORN’s national and New York office at 88 Third Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

WFP is essentially a money funnel which pays for an aggressive door to door canvas. Largely funded by unions, the WFP is ACORN’s “political arm” in New York State. Candidates supported by the Working Families Party and issues supported by ACORN are both advocated on the door steps of target voter homes as they share one major voter canvas.

The Working Families Party has no county organizations or county committee men or women and no local structure beyond its top leadership and an army of paid canvassers. Since the major parties no longer have the man power to organize an effective voter canvas, Democrats have turned to the WFP for their door to door campaign activities.

But more importantly, the Working Families Party is a criminal enterprise utilizing a for-profit political consulting firm, Data and Field Services (DFS) to skirt New York City election laws regarding public finance and campaign spending limits.

It’s the classic “pay to play” politics.

Deal with Valerie Jarrett

Stop Valerie Jarrett is a project of Americans for Limited Government and NetRightNation.com
via: stopjarrett.com - The mainstream media continue to ignore President Obama’s appointment of bizarre personnel to run the government. Personnel is policy. That being the case the American people need to know about these appointments. This week we look at another Obama appointee. These are not isolated incidents or an occasional bad apple. These folks are representative of the appointments he is making with little or no push back from the Senate during the confirmation process.

Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Liaison

• Most of the press coverage of Jarrett has been favorable, but many are not aware of the problems in her background.
• Jarrett is feared because of her close personal relationship with the President and the power that comes from this relationship.
• Jarrett at a salary of over $300,000 a year ran a property management company that mismanaged housing units allowing conditions like sewage backups and rodent problems to occur. She commented that it is hard to manage something you don’t own.
• Jarrett was appointed to her position, which does not require Senate confirmation, early in the Obama Administration.

We will be covering all of the above information over the coming days.

National Blackballers League exposed

DeMaurice Smith is the union official seated at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's left hand as he testifies before Congress in the video below.

Smith took the late Gene Upshaw's place as Executive Director of the NFL Players Association, but he's no political rookie. He worked for the Obama campaign under the discredited Attorney General Eric Holder.

By leaking confidential information about bids for the St. Louis Rams, Smith turned Rush Limbaugh into the New Rosa Parks. You remember: Go to the back of the bus. Your money isn't good enough.

Meet Barack Obama (D-SEIU)


Coming Soon: Collision with reality

Disturbing progressive metaphor in Rio

Here's a short video-metaphor for the ObamaCare bill that Democrats are advancing in the U.S. Congress for the President's signature.

The best-kept secret in Washington, D.C. is that ObamaCare is designed to maximize union-dues flow for jumbo healthcare unions like SEIU. That way they can kick it back to Obama Dems for election campaigns against would-be free-market Republicans. Know as P2P, it's the way political power is allocated among pro-union Democrats. Other provisions of ObamaCare receive more attention, but they are, in fact, secondary.

Reid and Pelosi are driving the Obama Bus, in a big hurry. Uh oh. Why are they lurching so hard to the left? They are way over the line! This is not going to work out!

The predictable results: a very unhealthy collision with reality. In this case, it was sooner instead of later. Would we be so fortunate.

Valerie Jarrett overwhelms Truth with Power

Who is Barack Obama's 'senior advisor' Valerie Jarrett?

Stop Valerie Jarrett is a project of Americans for Limited Government and NetRightNation.com.
via thespectrum.com: "Senior White House adviser and Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett is a Daley loyalist who worked as his deputy chief of staff, deputy corporation counsel and planning commissioner. She hired the future first lady of the United States, then-Michelle Robinson, as a mayoral assistant. Jarrett went on to serve as president and CEO of The Habitat Company, a real estate firm with a massive stake in federally funded Chicago public housing projects.

One of those public-private partnerships, the Grove Parc Plaza Apartments, was run into the ground under Jarrett's watch. Federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex a bottom-of-the-barrel 11 on a 100-point scale. "They are rapidly displacing poor people, and these companies are profiting from this displacement," Matt Ginsberg-Jaeckle of Southside Together Organizing for Power, a community group that seeks to help tenants stay in the same neighborhoods, told the Boston Globe last year.

Coincidentally enough, Grove Parc - now targeted for demolition as a result of years of neglect - sits in the shadows of what would have been the city's 2016 Olympic Stadium. Jarrett served as vice chair of Chicago's 2016 Summer Olympics bid committee before moving to the White House, where she has helmed a new "White House Office on Olympic, Paralympic and Youth Sport" with an undisclosed budget and staff."

via HotAir: "Credit CNN here. Not only did Campbell Brown follow up with a question about MSNBC after this sorry hack went into Fox-bashing mode but CNN.com actually posted a write-up noting her lame retreat when confronted. Say, did you know that the White House is “calling everybody out,” not just Fox News? Keep watching those Sunday morning chat shows; I’m sure Axelrod and Emanuel will be on again soon to lay out their arguments against CNN and MSNBC. The money line? “We’re going to speak truth to power.” The ultimate expression of self-righteous victimhood, offered here by … a senior advisor to the most powerful man on earth."

Transcript via Newsbusters:

VALERIE JARRETT, SENIOR WHITE HOUSE ADVISOR: What we’re saying is is that we want the public to understand what’s going on. When we saw the kind of distortions this summer, particularly directed at seniors, over health care reform, it was really outrageous. And I think what the president said in his message before Congress is we’re going to speak directly to the American people and make sure that they understand the truth. And so, certainly, if we see somebody distorting the truth, we’re going to call them on the carpet for that. But we don’t want to take our focus away from the core issues that are so important to the American people. Now, when there’s all that chatter and distortion and false information, we have to disseminate — we have to distinguish between truth and fiction.

CAMPBELL BROWN, CNN: So do you think Fox News is biased?

JARRETT: Well, of course they’re biased. Of course they are.

BROWN: Well, then do you also think that MSNBC is biased?

JARRETT: Well, you know what, this is, this is the thing. I don’t want to — actually, I don’t want to just generalize all Fox is biased or that another station is biased. I think what we want to do is to look at it on a case-by-case basis. And when we see a pattern of distortion, we’re going to be honest about that pattern of distortion.

BROWN: But you only see that at Fox News. That’s all, that you’ve only spoken out about Fox News.

JARRETT: That’s actually not true. I think that what the administration has said very clearly is that we’re going to speak truth to power. When we saw all the distortions in the course of the summer, when people were coming down to town hall meetings and putting up signs that were scaring seniors to death. When we’ve seen commercials go up on television that are distorting the truth, we’re, we’re actually calling everybody out. So, this isn’t anything that’s simply directed at Fox. We really just want the American people to have a clear understanding. There’s so much at stake right now. We really don’t have a lot of time for nonsense and distortions. The American people are also smarter than that. Let them reach their own judgments based on the facts. Let’s just take health care, for example. Reasonable people could differ about the right approach. So let’s have a conversation about that. Let’s not scare people by telling them that things are going to happen that are actually not even on the table. Let’s just talk about the facts.

Behind Closed Doors

Update: The Chicago Way

The result of the 2008 Presidential election was going to be the Legislature taking over the Executive Branch. Whether it was Obama or McCain.

These folks did such a good job with the Congress they deserved to have the Oval Office, right?

So we picked Barack Obama out of the South Side and we got Rahm Emanuel. They brought in David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett. Now it's The Chicago Way. Why is anybody so surprised?

Walk a Day in Barack Obama's shoes

Chicago sends its top talent to Washington, D.C.

U.S. Sen. Roland Burris was appointed by disgraced Illinois ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich to take Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.

Conversations recorded by law enforcement authorities between Blago and SEIU big Tom Balanoff turned up typical SEIU 'Pay to Play' politics.

Thus, although scandal clouded the Burris appointment, Blago took the fall and became a TV celebrity. Balanoff skated and moved on the bigger and better (see: 'Purple People Beaters: Welcome to Chicago, Oct. 26).

Sen. Burris is now one of the ACORN 7.

Here, Sen. Burris asks penetrating questions and makes cogent points at a Senate Committee hearing.
