(Jun. 4, 2012) — The UK Telegraph has reported that in a book to be released on June 5, putative Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama campaign manager David Axelrod are described as having exchanged harsh words and being “separated” by White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Holder is at the center of a congressional investigation into “Fast and Furious,” a gun-running operation which ultimately placed firearms into the hands of Mexican criminals and resulted in hundreds of deaths of Mexicans and at least two American Border Patrol agents. Through a representative, Holder has refused to be interviewed on the subject. A reported 129 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have asked Holder to resign after he refused to comply with a subpoena to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents related to the program.
Holder has also been accused of filing politically-motivated lawsuits and protecting illegal aliens rather than American citizens.
Obama’s ordering of remote killings by unmanned drones has been supported by Holder.
Axelrod was a White House adviser until returning to Chicago to run Obama’s re-election campaign and has called Republican fundraisers “contract killers.” Axelrod has reportedly attended the meetings during which targeted killings were discussed, although it is unclear if he possesses a national security clearance.
Top investigative reporter Dan Klaidman has spoken to dozens of sources to piece together a riveting Washington story packed with revelations. As the president’s inner circle debated secret programs, new legal frontiers, and the disjuncture between principles and down-and-dirty politics, Obama vacillated, sometimes lashed out, and spoke in lofty tones while approving a mounting toll of assassinations and kinetic-war operations. Klaidman’s fly-on-the-wall reporting reveals who has his ear, how key national security decisions are really made, and whether or not President Obama has lived up to the promise of candidate Obama. Readers making up their minds about him during the 2012 election year will turn to Kill or Capture to decide.
Klaidman, Managing Editor of Newsweek, has previously been said to have editorialized about “The GOP’s scare tactics” which he described as “ritualistic hazing” of Democrats prior to the 2010 midterm elections. Early in the Obama regime, Newsweek had proclaimed, “We Are All Socialists Now.”
An excerpt from Klaidman’s book describes Obama as having assembled a group to carry out “targeted killings” and that Obama “had no qualms” about such a murder of an American-born Islamic cleric in Yemen. Klaidman claimed that Obama was “disturbed” after a drone strike in Pakistan killed the wrong people.
Mr. Obama is the liberal law professor who campaigned against the Iraq war and torture, and then insisted on approving every new name on an expanding “kill list,” poring over terrorist suspects’ biographies on what one official calls the macabre “baseball cards” of an unconventional war. When a rare opportunity for a drone strike at a top terrorist arises — but his family is with him — it is the president who has reserved to himself the final moral calculation.
The president cannot lawfully order the killing of anyone, except according to the Constitution and federal law. Under the Constitution, he can only order killing using the military when the U.S. has been attacked, or when an attack is so imminent and certain that delay would cost innocent American lives, or in pursuit of a congressional declaration of war. Under federal law, he can only order killing using civilians when a person has been sentenced lawfully to death by a federal court and the jury verdict and the death sentence have been upheld on appeal. If he uses the military to kill, federal law requires public reports of its use to Congress and congressional approval after 180 days.
A writer at the UK Telegraph described Obama’s “kill list” as “deeply unsettling” and reported that “Predator drones now make frequent attacks in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.”
The left-leaning Salon has accused the Obama regime of carrying out killings of mourners of those killed by U.S. drones over this past weekend.
Some have said that Valerie Jarrett actually runs the White House, and she has gone on vacation with the Obamas. In an editorial at The Huffington Post today, Jarrett defended Obama’s purported efforts to “create a path to the middle class” by increasing food stamp eligibility and lengthening the period of time during which the unemployed could collect unemployment benefits.
Jarrett was born in Iran and has been called “the brains behind Obama.” Though possessing a law degree, she has worked in the public sector nearly all of her life. She currently heads the “Office of Public Liaison” in the Obama regime and had previous had dealings with Tony Rezko, who is now serving a 10.5-year prison term for “corruption and extortion.” Jarrett’s former business partner, Dan Mahru, was disbarred following his admission of mismanaging an estate for his mother. Mahru was once Rezko’s business partner. Rezko and Mahru reportedly allowed tenants to go without heat in 1997 in apartment complexes they managed while giving $1,000 to the campaign of Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator.
One of the housing projects which Jarrett managed was taken over by the federal government, and another “was exposed as a decrepit slum by the Boston Globe in 2008.”
Jarrett’s father-in-law was reportedly an active communist who worked with Frank Marshall Davis, a well-known communist writer which some have speculated is the biological father of Barack Hussein Obama.
A book published in January by a New York Times journalist depicts obscenity-laden arguments between then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Valerie Jarrett. [Editor’s Note: Language contained in the preceding link is unsuitable for children and may be offensive to readers of this newspaper.] Gibbs was said to have been “shaking with rage” while Jarrett remained calm concerning alleged criticism of Gibbs from Michelle Obama.
A White House spokesman had stated that Kantor’s book had utilized “second-hand accounts and Kantor’s own interpretation of events.”
Gibbs departed the White House in February of last year and is now acting as a campaign adviser to Obama. In response to a WorldNetDaily reporter‘s question three years ago about Obama’s birth certificate, Gibbs had said, “We put it on the internet” and ” I certainly hope by the fourth year of our administration that we’ll have dealt with this burgeoning birth controversy.”
However, the “controversy” has been elevated to a criminal investigation by an Arizona county sheriff and his adjunct investigative team who announced on March 1, 2012 that Obama’s long-form birth certificate released last year, which was not the one Gibbs had referenced, is a “computer-generated forgery.” Sheriff Joe Arpaio and members of his Cold Case Posse have promised a second press conference in mid-June.
A recently-released book by journalist Edward Klein is a #1 bestseller and is described by the author as a “blueprint to defeat Obama.”
Former presidential candidate Alan Keyes has called Obama’s support of “infanticide” a “ruthless ideology” demonstrating a “hardness of heart.”
