KeyWiki.org

Valerie Jarrett currently works as a senior advisor to U.S. president, Barack Obama, and has been referred to as “the other side of Obama’s brain.”

Born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents, Jarrett spent the first five years of her life there before her family moved to London. Jarrett comes from a family of highly influential leftists. In 1983, she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of famed Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was a one time political associate of Communist Party USA activist and Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis. Jarrett is the great niece of prominent Democratic Party leftist Vernon Jordan and her maternal grandfather was Robert Taylor, the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority. Jarrett is a personal friend of Marilyn Katz who worked with Students for a Democratic Society, the 1960s group that banded radical left youth and students together under the New Left movement.

After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, Jarrett went to work for Chicago’s first African-American mayor, Democratic Socialists of America-supported Harold Washington. After Washington’s death in 1987, she stayed on under his successor, Richard Daley. In City Hall, she and her colleague Susan Sher, recruited Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama and Jarrett quickly melded her way into their lives. In 2004, Jarrett served as Finance Chair for Obama’s 2004 run for the U.S. Senate. In September 2008, Chicago based socialist journal In These Times contributing editor Laura Washington suggested Valerie Jarrett for Urban Development Secretary based on her work as CEO of the Habitat Co. – “a clout-heavy Chicago real estate firm” – and the court-appointed overseer of the city’s massive plan to transform its notoriously decrepit public housing developments. Jarrett served as Senior Advisor to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and subsequently served as Co-Chair of the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team.

  1. Jarrett’s maternal grandfather Robert Taylor was more than just the first head of the Chicago Housing Authority. You’ll find he had many known communist associates and himself is mentioned by the House on Un-American activities, back in the day. Jarret’s mother, Barbara, is co-founder of the Erikson Institute which advocates for children. At one time or another those who have served with Barbara Taylor on the Board are; Tom Ayres, father of domestic terrorist, Bill Ayres. Bill Ayres’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn, domestic terrorist and convicted felon as well as Bill Ayres himself.
    Bill Clinton was wrong when he said there hasn’t been a communist in Washington DC in years. These people just keep crawling out from under the rocks and lest we not forget, just to remind ole Billy. Hillary’s thesis paper was on the man who wrote the book—Saul Alinsky. Maybe Bill wants to shy away a little.

  2. PS Jarrett had her turn at Chicago Housing just like her grandfather. She however, was so embroiled in incompetence that then Chicago Mayor Daley fired her and the Federal Government had to step and take control. She couldn’t get the Olympics for Chicago but let’s find out who would have make big bucks if certain pieces of land could be sold in order to build the Olympic Village. It wasn’t just about Chicago folks. Some wanted to line their pockets even more!

  3. Excellent info. Thanks. there are so many instances where you say “Just this ONE THING ought to be enough to tell people what Obama is” – and Jarrett is one of those instances. As is Rezko. As is Ayres. As is his “Acting stupidly” comment. As is…

  4. Just another red-diaper baby ready for the FEMA camps they’re getting ready for US! Get the word out about these DSA/DHS/State Department/DOJ radicals (commies). THANK YOU, TREVOR, FOR YOUR TENACITY!!

  5. Valuable info. Lucky everyone I discovered your internet site by accident, and i am stunned precisely why this kind of incident didn’t took place earlier! My partner and i book-marked the item.

  6. Men who have a craze for gaining weight by building muscles may try out the required
    work-outs systematically. Try this cleanse not because I’m so hyped about it, but because you have a true desire to change your
    health and abdominal appearance permanently. And so, 30%
    of your calorie consumption would come from proteins, 40% from carbohydrates, as well as
    30% from fats.
