Valerie Jarrett: Obama’s New Foreign Policy Adviser

Posted on April 12 2010 6:00 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

“The last time that President Obama’s senior advisor and assistant Valerie Jarrett was in the news, her favored political recruit, Anthony ‘Van’ Jones, was resigning his post as White House presidential advisor amid revelations of a radical background that included communist sympathies and his support for 9/11 Truther conspiracy,” writes Tait Trussell at FrontPage Magazine. “Now Jarrett, widely viewed as Obama’s radical alter ego, has reemerged – this time as a foreign policy guru.”

I know what you’re thinking: “But that’s ludicrous, not only is she a radical leftist, she’s not even close to being a foreign policy expert.” That’s right, but I’m afraid that Obama couldn’t care less. Truth be told, he probably considers the first objection to be a pro rather than a con. In any case, Trussell continues:

Nonetheless, Jarrett may already be exerting her influence on the president in this arena. On March 28, she appeared on ABC’s “The Week,” where she talked up the forthcoming nuclear deal between the United States and Russia. “The fact that the President and Russia are about to sign the START Treaty is a good sign that we’re making cooperation and good progress with countries such as Russia,” Jarrett insisted. Just a few weeks later, Obama has made – perhaps with Jarrett’s influence – a sharp departure on nuclear policy. Under the new plan, the United States promises not to use nuclear weapons against nations that do not have them – even if they attack the United States first.

As the author of the article explains, chances are that Jarrett was indeed involved in shaping Obama’s nuclear policy, which is “a truly worrying development.” After all, not only are Jarrett’s political allies more often than not radical progressives, but there is also “her conspicuous lack of foreign policy credentials.”

In other words, we’ve got a radical leftist amateur advising the most powerful man on earth – and not just on anything, but on foreign policy. If that doesn’t worry you I don’t know what will.
