For those who are wondering how Barack Obama — a man seemingly engaged in full-time campaigning, fundraising and rabble-rousing — could also have the bandwidth to weaken America both at home and abroad, the answer is really quite simple.
The leader of the free world is actually a woman named Valerie Jarrett, a longtime crony of Barack and Michelle Obama, who appears to call all of the shots in the Oval Office.
In the White House, Jarrett has been linked to a wide variety of scandals and other policy debacles.

Which brings us at last to the Democrats’ latest haven for race-baiting, Ferguson.
Jarrett was in contact with Missouri’s Governor Nixon in the run-up to the announcement of the Gr
