Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett is undoubtedly a woman of power and influence.
Barack Obama has in-fact said that he makes no decision without her, as noted by Michelle Malkin. But like recently departed "Green Jobs Czar" Van Jones, Jarrett is also a far-left subversive radical who's completely obsessed with racial issues... and was never properly vetted by the MSM, let alone anybody in the White House. And this woman was Van Jones' recruiter, biggest supporter, and cheerleader. She was also a cog in the corrupt and ruthless Chicago Machine, basically racketeering with the likes of (now disowned) Obama allies Blago and Tony Rezko... and of course the Dear Leader himself back-in-the-days.
Born in Iran to expat American parents, Valerie Jarrett's father was a doctor long associated with far-left causes and racial-identity politics... and who served on a union board with Obama mentor and racist-communist Frank Marshall Davis. Jarrett's mother still serves on a board with unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers' father and wife- she herself unrepetant WU terrorista Bernardine Dohrn.
Involved deeply with Jarrett was scumbag-supreme Tony Rezko, a now-convicted felon and Obama’s (and Blago's...) friend/fundraiser/political Godfather... you know, the guy that helped Barack and Michelle get that nice South Side mansion they couldn't quite swing on their own (with helpful real-estate agent Patti Blagojevich, no less)
Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, linked Jarrett to a series of shameful real-estate scandals, including projects operated by Rezko and Allison Davis (former boss of Obama). Housing projects developed and/or operated by Davis and Rezko have been manifestly substandard and beset with code violations.
Basically, Obama helped get them public funding for projects purported to be "for the poor"- while these charlatans spent as little as possible building and maintaining them- and Jarrett "managed" and looked the other way for $300K/yr in salary... plus $850K of "deferred income" -according to her own report.
As CEO of The Habitat Company, she was notably responsible for the controversial housing project located in Obama’s district Grove Parc Plaza, which according to the Boston Globe was considered “uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale ... a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.
Jarrett was given a pass by the MSM over the past year, with only the most superficial vetting. Completely ignored and therefore unknown to most are the shady business dealings and radical allies like Marylin Katz: Jarrett's biggest promoter, '68 Days-of-Rage veteran... and Weather Underground founding member. But Jarrett's radical associations and lucrative-yet-ethically-challenged "management" career have now drawn the unwelcome attention of the resurgent Right... fresh-off their exposure/victory over embittered commie nutter Van Jones.
A far less opaque picture of Jarrett's web of dubious associations is offered-up by Muckety.com -here-
The American Spectator states that in speeches before far-left groups over the past five months, Jarrett touted Jones's hiring, in part, because the groups ... were familiar with Jones's brand of anti-Americanism and economic radicalism.
As Jarrett had said to the Netroots Nation conference just a little over a month ago, re. Van Jones:
“We were so delighted to be able to recruit him 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.” -video here-
It was also Jarrett's brainstorm to establish a Chief Diversity Officer at the FCC, a position created, then filled with Alinskyite radical Mark Lloyd- with a stealth mandate for muzzling talk radio, where obviously some of Obama's most fervent -and effective- critics dwell.
Is Valerie Jarrett next of Obama's revolutionary command to go? Riehl World View is starting to see the possibility -here-
And as Jill Stanek wrote:
Scott Baker of Breitbart TV's The B-Cast was on during Glenn's final segment, connecting the dots between POTUS advisor Valerie Jarrett and Obama's past, including his grandparents, his mother, and Franklin Davis Marshall who played an influential role in his life.
This is stuff you can't make up.
... She is Obama's brain. She's also Michelle's brain too.
Perhaps the only thing keeping heat off Jarrett for now is the dramatic and ongoing implosion of longtime Obama ally ACORN, which Moonbattery brings us up to date on -here-
The Confederate Yankee is tracking what Glenn Beck is training his artillery upon next. It also looks to him like ACORN first, then....? -here-
Obama would likely put up a real fight over this one... seems like he'd be lost without her. But if Jarrett's not next to go, she sure ought to be -like Jones, her and the Trotskyite agenda need to be shown the door ASAP... seriously, there's just not many people in this country looking for what she's peddling.
With that tumor removed, there's still a chance Obama can be forcibly-moderated. While not altogether likely, Obama would perhaps then see it as in his interest to take a more centrist path in the name of political survival -ala Clinton '96- limiting the amount of incremental damage he can do to the country prior to November 2010's "correction".
