Where Is the Outrage Over Valerie Jarrett?

No one should be remotely surprised about ABC’s decision to cancel Roseanne Barr’s reboot comedy. The utter hypocrisy of the left has no end to it. If it did, Roseanne’s jabs at Barack Obama’s lieutenant Valerie Jarrett would be just another day’s story.

The network that brings you insult after insult against conservatives daily on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The View,” now pretends to be alarmed at “hurtful” tweets from Ms. Barr toward Jarrett. The ironic twist to all this indignation by ABC is Jarrett herself.

ABC Fast and Furious Coverup

Those without sin, cast the first stone Valerie. Take for instance Department of Justice records in 2014 that showed Valerie Jarrett’s attempt to cover up the “Fast and furious” scandal for then-Attorney General Eric Holder. Naturally ABC itself was proficient in hiding facts from that scandal as they now play the holier-than-thou purveyor of the truth.

Holder lied to Congress. On top of that with no punishment forthcoming, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) supposedly lost track of hundreds of weapons they secretly smuggled in Mexico. That eventually led to the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

Jarrett Communist Family

There were 2015 FBI documents provided by Judicial Watch that indicated Jarrett had an extended family of hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government. Her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was on the FBI’s Security Index and considered a potential Communist saboteur.

Valerie Jarrett is well known in Washington circles as a liberal extremist with many connections to Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. She has been highly sympathetic to that organization along with her boss since the overthrow of the president of Egypt, a staunch American ally.

Indeed, Roseanne may have tweeted remarks that were out of line, but the whole picture remained unclear. Valerie is no wallflower of innocence. She has engaged in secret talks with the likes of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. But like so many of Obama’s endeavors as president, they were kept secret from Congress and the American people.

And speaking of secrecy from the American people, Jarrett was in secret talks with the Iranians long before the ill-fated Iran nuclear agreement. It was never approved by the Senate, but that was par for the secrecy of the Obama administration.

Jarrett was famously born in Iran. Time after time it appears her loyalty lies elsewhere rather than with America. Take for instance Libya. Jarrett and Hillary Clinton helped choreograph the ouster of Muammar Gaddafi. Unfortunately, they failed to plan a new government which led to the complete downfall of the country and massive ISIS infiltration.

What Axelrod Said About Jarrett

Jarrett often advised an ill-prepared Obama on national security issues. She had no real world experience in this area. Even Obama’s close friend and campaign chairman David Axelrod had little good to say about her. She had no campaign experience at any level.

Naturally these issues have never surfaced in the mainstream media that adores Barack Obama. Instead, within minutes of her tweets, Roseanne is dismissed from ABC. How is it that they are so outraged by Barr’s small-time act while Jarrett’s words and actions affected the entire nation; literally.

It is a fact that Jarrett never had any real official duties. Why was she in the White House? Yet we should all be outraged that Roseanne may know something we don’t know or are not privileged to know?
