Valerie Jarrett: Michelle Obama Will Not Run for Vice President

I’d believe her. I don’t think Michelle wants all this. According to The Hill: Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has committed to choosing a woman as his running mate. But an Obama family confidante on Tuesday said there’s “no chance” that woman will be Michelle Obama. Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama White House senior adviser, took a hatchet to the recent speculation that the former first lady

Donor Steps in to Cover Valerie Jarrett’s $30,000 Speaking Fee

Seriously? A school would pay $30,000 to hear Valerie Jarrett’s canned selection of sentences she’s using to cash in on her government service? Let her go speak to people who can afford to bask in ValJar’s sublime glow.

Departure of Top Aides Could Grow Jarrett’s Power Further

President Obama will lose two of his most senior aides over the next few months, departures that could further augment the power of the person who is already the paramount Obama advisor, Valerie Jarrett.

Dobbs: Jarrett Diminished March, Calling it a “Parade”

I ran the video of Valerie Jarrett Thursday discussing President Obama’s no-show at the Paris march, but I missed this. I myself inadvertently called it a “parade” after hearing her remarks. But it was emphatically not a parade, and Jarrett probably was choosing her words carefully in order to minimize the issue. “Not once, but twice, she referred to that march as a parade, dismissing

Jarrett Condemns Israeli Gaza Operation as Child Killing

Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s closest advisor, charged that Israel is slaughtering children and that the Gaza operation must halt. “You . . . can’t condone the killing of all of these innocent children,” Jarrett said on Face the Nation. “This is why the cease-fire is so important.

The Blaze took a close look at Sunday’s Meet the Press interview with Valerie Jarrett, for which NBC was granted exclusive access to the West Wing so they could follow her around, and noticed this in her office: I don’t know.

Valerie Jarrett for Senate?

Or for something else? White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said in an interview that aired Sunday on Meet the Press that she might just run for office, though she termed the prospect “highly unlikely.” But she left the door open, and in politics, a door slightly ajar can quickly become a gaping chasm. She also reiterated Michelle Obama’s denial that she will entertain a political

ValJar Trying to get Obamacare “Into the Scripts”

White House consigliere Valerie Jarrett was in Los Angeles this week trying to get scriptwriters to violate their artistic integrity and name-drop Obamacare into their scripts.

ValJar has a Boyfriend?

Obama confidant and one-woman White House power center Valerie Jarrett is dating sportscaster and  former Minnesota Vikings player Ahmad Rashad, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Look at the two love birds. Let’s hope that nothing ever gets between them. But alas, the former wide receiver might not be the catch of the year.

ValJar “Reaches Out”

There’s a throwaway line in a Wall Street Journal piece today that should make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Actually, the hair on your head too. It’s a big, beautiful welcome mat to the new enhanced administrative action that will guide the rest of President Obama’s term and which he plans to announce in the State of the Union address tomorrow
