Recently we have heard of the all male cabinet that Obama now has, but very few questioned or even knows what one particular lady of whom Obama has known since around 1991 while he was engaged to Michelle Robinson, now Michelle Obama. This particular lady, though strange in some ways got to move next to Barack Obama in ways others could not. We should take a brief look at Michelle Robinson to just set down her ideology because this is the other lady that Obama goes to for answers to questions rather than his staff.
According to DiscoverTheNetworks:
“In 1985 Miss Robinson received her B.A. in Sociology from Princeton University, where she minored in African American Studies. According to FrontPageMagazine reporter Jacob Laksin, “In a [February 2008] interview with Newsweek, [Michelle] Obama reveals that she got into Princeton … not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school. As a ‘legacy’ candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied.”
The First Lady “denied” a more qualified individual from obtaining entrance into this school. How does that sound when people are questioning the matters on Wall Street in the “action’ for “equality”? How can Michelle Obama lay claim that the people protesting Wall Street are right when she did just what they were protesting about? That is enough about her. We will cover her in another article that will show a lot more of her problematic past.
Now, on to the one lady that talks with and helps Obama decide on nearly all matters of his Presidency. The following quote comes from the New York Times as shown below. Here we can see very clearly that Obama has great influence to his actions by Valerie Jarrett, but then we must ask just how did this lady get such overwhelming power to direct a President in his decisions and what type of action does she represent?
Robert Draper, of The New York Times, wrote in 2009:
“Jarrett and Obama at Northern Virginia Community College for a town-hall meeting on health care issues. Obama says he runs all major decisions past her.”
Let’s look at this lady, Valerie Jarrett, and her family and where they came from. One thing that is glaring is the fact that Valerie Jarrett’s family settled in the elite Hyde Park neighborhood in 1963, not to mention that she was born in Shiraz, Iran. Her mother, Barbara Taylor Bowman, co-founded the Erickson Institute in Chicago and still serves on its Board of Trustees. Tom Ayers, the father of Bill Ayers, was a one-time fellow trustee of the Institute. According to WorldNetDaily’s Brad O’Leary, the Erickson board also included Bill Ayers’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn. For his part, Bill Ayers called Bowman “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book A Kind and Just Parent, noting that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama.”
Now here comes some intriguing insights and these little bits show that Valerie Jarrett was not just a neighbor, but she was a good friend and neighbor to Bill Ayers’ father, who had connections that would become very interesting during the McCarthy era. It was here that Bill Ayers called Barack Obama a “writer” neighbor. Here are very close connections to Bill Ayers, a man who hates the United States, but lives in an elite neighborhood in the U.S.! How can an individual that hates the United States so much live in such an elite place? Even more questionable is Valerie Jarrett. However, we also have to take a look at the left leaning New York Times which show a completely different look at this powerful lady that has a high influence in the President’s decisions.
In a piece that demonstrated just how much Valerie Jarrett influenced not just Obama, but also his wife, we just have to look back at an early campaign conflict where Obama was dead set on not going to a black women’s sorority event. This event shows just what Valerie Jarrett can do to get her way.
From the same article by Robert Draper in the NYT, he writes:
On Jan. 25, 2008, the day before the South Carolina Democratic primary, Barack Obama endured a grueling succession of campaign events across the state. When his staff informed him that the evening would conclude with a brief show-up at the Pink Ice Ball, a gala for the African-American sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, Obama flatly refused to attend. “I’ve been to sorority events before,” he said. “We’re not gonna change anybody’s mind.”
Rick Wade, a senior adviser, Stacey Brayboy, the state campaign manager, and Anton Gunn, the state political director, took turns beseeching their boss. The gala, they told Obama, would be attended by more than 2,000 college-educated African-American women, a constituent group that was originally skeptical of the candidate’s “blackness” and that the campaign worked tirelessly to wrest from Hillary Clinton. State luminaries like Representative James Clyburn — himself an undeclared black voter — would be expecting him. They would be in and out in five minutes.
Obama’s irritation grew. “Man, it’s late, I’m tired,” he snapped. “I’m not going to any sorority event.”
The three staff members knew what their only option was at this point. “If you want him to do something,” Gunn would later tell me, “there are two people he’s not going to say no to: Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama.”
At the day’s penultimate event, a rally in Columbia, Gunn, Brayboy and Wade pleaded their case to Jarrett, the Obamas’ longtime friend and consigliere. When they were finished, Jarrett told them, “We can make that happen,” as Gunn would recall it. Jarrett informed Michelle of the situation, and when the candidate stepped offstage from the rally, Obama’s wife told him he had one last stop to make before they called it a night.
“I told Anton I’m not going to any Pink Ice Ball!” Obama barked.
Then Jarrett glided over to the fuming candidate. Her voice was very quiet and very direct.
“Barack,” she said, “you want to win, don’t you?”
Scowling, Obama affirmed that he did.
“Well, then. You need to go to Pink Ice.”
“And he shuts up,” Gunn recalls, “and gets on the bus.”
One year later, Barack Obama convened his first presidential town-hall meeting, in Elkhart, Ind. Responding to a question about the economy, Obama took the opportunity to warn corporate recipients of TARP money that “you are not going to be able to give out these big bonuses until you pay taxpayers back. You can’t get corporate jets. You can’t go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers’ dime.”
Officials in the already-reeling hospitality industry felt sucker-punched by Obama’s remark. “We began experiencing a serious downturn in business,” Jonathan Tisch, the chief executive of Loews hotels, told me. “There were mass cancellations, especially from the financial-services sector.” Tisch commiserated with Penny Pritzker, a developer, hotel entrepreneur and Obama campaign adviser, and word got around to her good friend and fellow Chicago businesswoman, the White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.”
The New York Times paints Valerie Jarrett and her family in a good light and a positive view. Yet, if we open the curtains and look at the skeletons in the closet, we see a very different individual. Valerie Jarrett has a background Linked in some way to either a Socialistic or Communistic view. Valerie Jarrett’s father-in-law was deep into the Communist Party as shown in www.discoverthenetworks.com.
“In 1983 she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of the Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was a pioneering black journalist who wrote columns for The Chicago Defender extolling Communist poet Langston Hughes and lifelong Stalinists W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson. He freelanced at Kansas City’s The Call from 1954-58, then returned to Chicago to become the first nationally syndicated black columnist for the Chicago Tribune, and still later wrote for the Chicago Sun-Times. Mr. Jarrett once sat on a union publicity committee with Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist poet who occasionally counseled the young Barack Obama. When Vernon Jarrett died in 2004, he was saluted in the pages of People’s Weekly Worker, the house organ of the Communist Party USA.”
Not only did her Father-in-law have very close connections to the Communist Party, but he also knew the very strong Communist, Frank Marshall Davis, who by the way also was a mentor to Barack Obama. This shows a very clear link to Socialism/Communism by not just Valerie Jarrett, but also for Barack Obama!
“We have kind of a mind meld,” Jarrett said of herself and the President. “And chances are, what he wants to do is what I’d want to do.”
If this is so true, one has to wonder if it is Barack Obama who makes the critical decisions or is it Valerie Jarrett? Her background has barely been covered or exposed by any new network or reporter.
“Jarrett is deeply concerned with racial issues. After the Jeremiah Wright tapes threatened to sink Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, it was Jarrett who encouraged Obama to give his “race speech” at Constitution Hall. African-American administration staffers have said that without Jarrett’s patronage, “their opinions and the often-legitimate concerns voiced by black leaders like [Al] Sharpton would have been thoroughly disregarded by the white-dominated senior staff.” (Emphasis added.)”
“Without Jarrett’s patronage, the self-identified communist revolutionary Van Jones would not have gotten his appointment as the Obama administration’s Green Jobs Czar in March 2009. A White House official told Politico that Jones “did not go through the traditional vetting process”; instead, Jarrett interviewed Jones, a signal that she pushed for his appointment. Jarrett gushed to the Netroots Nation conference:
“We were so delighted to be able to recruit him [Van Jones] into the White House. We were watching him…for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that, and we have all that energy in the White House.”
Valerie Jarrett was very open to the placement of Communist Party people within the Obama Administration. She had the background through her father-in-law and others to either the Socialist Party or the Communist Party, and yet these connections were never shown nor has any reporter questioned her about them. Jarrett is off limits to these and so many other questions that should be asked and answered. Her actions have placed people in the Obama Administration that have views that do not adhere to the laws of the nation nor to the ideology of the United States!
“In early 2009 Jarrett lobbied President Obama to create the office of Chief Diversity Officer within the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a position filled soon thereafter by Mark Lloyd, an Alinskyite and a former senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.” (Center for American Progress is just another name for the Socialist Party of America since they have very deep connections with this and other so-called, “Progressive” groups. All italics here are by author.)
Jarrett also helped recruit Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, who supports the Fairness Doctrine, has argued that Americans should “celebrate tax day,” and believes that animals should have legal standing to sue humans.
Moreover, Jarrett’s office approved the September 2009 invitation of Jameel Jaffer to a White House Ramadan dinner. Jaffer runs the ACLU’s “national security project.” According to The American Spectator:
“Jaffer is a cause célèbre to the far left for his career of litigating against the United States in support of terrorists and radical Islamists, and has proudly touted his awards from groups like CAIR.
“‘We had other names on the list for invitations, but Jarrett’s office wanted Jaffer in the room. We were told it was important,’ says a White House source. ‘It was made clear that his presence was something senior folks here wanted to happen.’
“Jaffer has filed lawsuits challenging the FBI’s ‘national security letter’ authority [and] the constitutionality of warrantless wiretaps. [He] has been a leader in pushing for the shut down of Guantánamo Bay, and providing legal rights to terrorists held by the United States overseas in such countries as Iraq and Afghanistan. His efforts enabled the leaking of ‘torture photos’ out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and some sources inside the Central Intelligence Agency believe he was one of the lawyers who provided legal advice to the Department of Justice to pursue an investigation into enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA.”
Yes, this is the woman seated at Obama’s right hand! Is this good for our nation and the Constitution? If you disagree with the ideology of this entire Obama Administration, then you should call, write, or contact all your members of Congress and let them know before the United States falls further under the spell of the mind melding of Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
