Iranian Born Valerie Jarrett Rises Again

This weeks interview in Newsweek with Valerie Jarrett concluded with a nauseating feeling that they will never get it. She is suppose to be the other half of Obama’s brain as you may recall? I thought she was gone, apparently a resurrection. He wants to continue the Cairo bit?? A redo of part of one of my earlier posts then quotes from the interview:

Valerie Jarrett-Named Iranian of the Month

Obama’s closest aide is Shirazi

 Jarrett is a member of African-American and Chicago royalty. But her story and her life begin in the Middle East, not the Midwest. She was born in 1956 in Shiraz, Iran, Hospital, where Jarrett was born, and spent her early years. ”Every memory from Iran is a very happy memory,” Jarrett told me in an e-mail.  http://www.iranian.com/main/singlepage/2008/valerie-jarrett . Jarrett speaks Persian-Farsi and French.

“I had the honor of being in Shiraz and was student and later friend of Professor and Mrs Bowman (Valerie parent).
This Family is highly exceptional and Dr Bowman loves Iran and Shiraz and had been in touch with Shiraz ever since Valerie was in Shiraz and she is a brilliant and superb individual who belong to entire world”

Newsweek’s Interview:

You were born in Iran.
I was born in Iran. It was a very different country then than it is now. But I think what I learned, and actually what President Obama and I talked about at our first dinner—he having spent a good portion of his childhood in Indonesia—is that it gives you a different perspective to have lived outside of the United States. It teaches you a huge appreciation for our country. But it also teaches you this global perspective that helps inform decisions throughout life’s pathway.

Now you’re going with the president to Indonesia?
I am. He is looking forward to going back. It’s the largest Muslim population in the world. [The trip] gives him the opportunity to continue the dialogue he started in Cairo several months ago. http://www.newsweek.com/id/234534

Brits declair war on Fries– will do measurements

So nice that the British took their left-turn ahead of us. We can have a nice glimpse into the crystal ball of our future. Officials will visit 80 chip shops to examine how much fat is in their chips and offer advice. H/T The Agitator

Facing a severe economic crisis and renewed tensions with Argentina over the disputed Falkland Islands, the Daily Mail reports the British government is focusing attention on the dimensions of the country’s French fries:

They have been a staple of British cuisine for more than a century.

But traditional chips are the latest target in the Government’s war on obesity.

Chip shop owners are being encouraged to produce thicker versions because they contain fewer calories and less fat.

Chippy owners, however, have condemned what they see as an attack on their cooking.

The traditional British chip is already thicker – and therefore healthier – than the French fries served by big fast-food chains.

Despite this, officials from the Food Standards Agency watchdog are encouraging chip shop owners to produce even thicker versions, much like potato wedges.

Obama’s new weird poverty measurement

One can only remain in awe, as our juggernaut of Socialism coming to our town soon, remains steadfast on course. I suggest that POTUS returned to Healthcare as the ultimate diversion. Meanwhile his radical appointments and agenda proceed via his highly competent Statist Czars. We will be “poorer” than Bangladesh. More welfare coming for the new poor

The Obama administration just announced it will create a new poverty-measurement system that will eventually displace the current poverty measure. This new measure, which has little or nothing to do with actual poverty, will serve as the propaganda tool in Obama’s endless quest to “spread the wealth.”

The weird new poverty measure will produce very odd results. For example, if the real income of every single American were to magically triple over night, the new poverty measure would show there had been no drop in “poverty,” because the poverty income threshold would also triple. Under the Obama system, poverty can be reduced only if the incomes of the “poor” are rising faster than the incomes of everyone else.

Another paradox of the new poverty measure is that countries such as Bangladesh and Albania will have lower poverty rates than the United States, even though the actual living conditions in those countries are extremely bad. Haiti would probably have a very low poverty rate when measured by the Obama system because the earthquake reduced much of the population to a uniform penniless squalor.

In honest English, the new system will measure income inequality, not poverty. Why not just call it an “inequality” index? Answer: because the American voter is unwilling to support massive welfare increases, soaring deficits, and tax increases to equalize incomes. However, if the goal of income leveling is camouflaged as a desperate struggle against poverty, hunger, and dire deprivation, then the political prospects improve. The new measure is a public-relations Trojan horse, smuggling in a “spread the wealth” agenda under the ruse of fighting real material privation — a condition that is rare in our society. http://article.nationalreview.com/427180/obamas-new-poverty-measurement/robert-rector It is amazing how fast this freight train keeps riding down the rails

Obamacare– Last Helicopter out of Saigon

There is a perk in HR 3590 Section 2951

Let’s hear it!

Time to talk about what is in the bill Republicans. Of course, no one has read it, and we don’t know what machinations they are up to as we read. But there is a good read from “American Spectator” which provides a glimpse into our future. To read the  full bill go to our bill section on the left of our homepage. I dare you!

The bill provides for federal funding and supervision for this vast expansion of government intrusion into family life. This is the Nanny State on steroids.

Is your family being “targeted” for such home visitations? Let’s see if you fit into one of these very broad categories:

• Families where Mom is not yet 21. (No mention here whether she is married or not.)
• Families where someone is a tobacco user. (Does this include the White House? Watch out, Sasha and Malia!) Does Grandpa, whom you love and have taken in, enjoy his after-dinner pipe?
• Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

As if that list was not wide-ranging enough, here’s the net that can encompass tens of millions:

• Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States. [Emphasis added.]

So, while Johnny gets his gun, the government steps in to “help” his family at home. Ronald Reagan used to say the most frightening words in the English language were these: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.

Who will sit atop the federal pyramid that runs this vast new invasion of family privacy? Why, it will be Sec. of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, of course. She was the most pro-abortion governor in American history when President Obama tapped her for his Cabinet.

Do you spank your children? You should know that HHS bureaucrats think you are an abuser.
Do you support the Second Amendment? How would you like HHS bureaucrats asking your children if you maintain firearms in the home for family protection?

Do you home school your kids? Take care. Members of Congress who have tried to abolish home schooling are big backers of this health care bill. Do you wonder why?

There are abundant reasons to oppose this health care bill. Conservative leader Gary Bauer cites the colorful words of Oklahoma Democratic Congressman, Dan Boren. Mr. Boren is one of the bluest of Blue Dogs. He says: “They can break my arms. They can do whatever they want to. They’ll never get my vote — ever. They’ll have to walk across my dead body if they want my vote on this issue.”

Boren spoke for many concerned Democrats when he said: “…there is no chance I am voting for this bill because it raises taxes on businesses, creates job-killing mandates, grows the size of government, and cuts services to seniors.” http://spectator.org/archives/2010/03/08/hidden-dangers

We can only hope they delay until the “Easter” recess-am I allowed to say that? Then watch the demonstrations.  My family physician who has moved to the electronic record and now has a question, “Do you have a firearm at home”? Coming to your town soon.
