Ed Klein at the New York Post reports that “Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state… But she did so through people outside the ¬administration, so the story couldn’t be traced to her or the White House.” Oops!
“Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been ¬going on at the State Department. I’m told that the e-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come,” Klein reports.
Okay – I don’t normally pat myself on the back – but I called this one, actually telling someone a week ago that it was probably Jarrett who is trying bury Hillary Clinton, but is also most likely behind the potential toppling of long time Clinton buddy Rahm Emmanuel in Chicago, where Jarrett is from, and of course where Obama lived. I frankly think she is trying to kill off (figuratively) or at least tarnish everything Clinton.
I’ll bet my bottom dollar (and I don’t even know what that is. Maybe it is supposed to refer to one’s last dollar) that Jarrett is behind the communist challenger Garcia in Chicago to unseat Mayor Rahm Emmanuel – long time friend, confidant and member of the Clinton’s original Little Rock “War Room” crew. He’s known the Clintons for almost a quarter century.
Rahm Emmanuel is a tough Mafia-like thug, but he’s a piker compared to a KGB-like operative like Valerie Jarrett. She is like ISIS as he more like al-Qaeda. Both are ruthless, but one just doesn’t match up to the other.
Billy-Bob Clinton appears to be none to happy with this development as he is reported saying “The Obamas are behind the e-mail story, and they’re spreading rumors that I’ve been with women, that Hillary promoted people at the State Department who’d done favors for our foundation, that John Kerry had to clean up diplomatic messes Hillary left behind. “The Obamas are out to get us any way they can.”
I have never agreed more with Bubba than I do about this. That is exactly what’s going on.
I don’t know how the Clintons feel about the Obamas but I’m certain Barack and Michelle hate the Clintons. My guess is the Clintons merely looked down at Obama as being a want-to-be. Remember what he said to Ted Kennedy during the 2008 presidential campaign: “A few years ago, this guy [Obama] would have been getting us coffee.”
That comment is what turned the tide against Hillary as Kennedy was reportedly visibly angered by Bill’s comment. He ended up endorsing Obama. Clinton’s response to Kennedy’s endorsement: “The only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.”
In 2014, “Jarrett was said to be livid that most Democrats running for election refused to be seen campaigning with the president. She blamed the Clintons for marginalizing the president and for trying to wrestle control of the Democratic Party away from Obama. And she vowed payback.”
Well, here it is, and I predict, as the Carpenters song says: “We’ve only just begun.”
I don’t know yet whether she and Obama have another candidate to bring forth immediately – maybe Elizabeth Warren – or if they just want to take down the Clintons and don’t care who follows, but it should be entertaining.
