Who is Valerie Jarrett?
The American Spectator ^ | July, 2011 | The Prowler

Posted on 07/14/2011 10:43:15 AM PDT by yoe

[snip] Jarrett has been part of Obama's inner circle since his days as an Illinois state senator. She identifies herself as a Chicago businesswoman, but according to Obama campaign advisers, she is much more than that.

[snip] She is Iranian-American, for one thing, and the Obama campaign has sought to keep her ties to Iran from press views, as it has also sought to keep her political background and deep and tangled business and personal relationship to the Obama family from sight.

[snip]…she also has been a well-known political operative for Chicago Democrats back to her days working in the background as an adviser to late Chicago mayor Harold Washington, as well as the Daley family.

[snip] "She knows where are all the bodies have been buried in the past 30 or so years of Chicago politics and she knows all the tricks," says one longtime Democrat political consultant in Chicago. "If Obama had a political and financial godmother, it would be Valerie." [

Jarrett, according to friends, gave Michelle Obama professional advice before she married Obama, and helped her with jobs. But more important, say Chicago Democrats who know Jarrett and Obama's history, and why the Obama campaign has desperately sought to keep Jarrett's role in the campaign under wraps, Jarrett may be to Obama what James McDougal was to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Who is going to be the first in the inner circle to crack? Who will start the ball rolling? We know there’s skeletons there. Just not enough info to indict. Yet.

You've missed naming one of the troika who are running the country. Never, never forget Mrs. Robinson.

The only good thing to come out of the Blaggo circus was that it prevented the appointment and probable re-election of Jarrett to the Senate.

A journalist named Ulsterman, has been writing about this. Presently the one running the WH is Bill Daley, CoS. Jarrett, was running all, but she’s being edged out. She went from West Wing to upstairs, and is out of immediate reach of Obama, but immediate access to Michelle.

Don’t forget Obama’s old pal Tony Rezko (Syrian-American). Take it for what it’s worth; it’s from Wikipedia: “Rezko is also under indictment, along with a business associate, for wire fraud related to the alleged sale of his pizza business to a straw buyer at an inflated price in order to obtain millions of dollars in loans from GE Capital.[22] Rezko has pled not guilty to these charges and the trial is scheduled to begin in 2009.” Google Obama and Rezko while learning about Jarret. Spawn of the old KGB? Maybe. Spawn of the Destroyer? Definitely.

She is NOT and Iranian-American. According to several accounts she is Black; born in Iran to Black American parents who were working there. At the same time, she is a Marxist.

Rezko, Jarret, Huma...no wonder the Democrats were so offended by Bush and his cowboyish desire to defend the US.

Makes a person almost wander off the reservation and think how the Democrats might have thought they could profit politically by an attack by terrorists on US soil during a Republican Administration.

Not wandereing too far. Just saying these giant egos like J Kerry are so fat in the head that they might not even know how easily they are played or how dangerous were and are the people they are smiling and laughing with both publicly and privately.

So many ties including Soros that are bent on the end of the US as we know it. As the Dems figuratively stand on the flag in a back alley (and literally so), they may be so blinded by their passions that they never realize it is the end of their own freedom as well.

Valarie Jarrett isn’t Iranian. She was born there becuase her father was working there.

how is she an Iranian? She was born of American parents in another country while her father was working there. She has no Iranian blood or heritage...am I looking at this in the wrong way?

If Wackopedia can be believed, Ms. Jarret has no Iranian blood:
Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz, as part of a program where American doctors and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries' health and farming efforts. When she was five, the family moved to London for one year, returning to Chicago in 1963.
That does not mean she's not a socialist, back stabbing, nasty person.

And conversely we have a number of fine Americans who trace their ancestry to Iran. The good looking woman on JAG and Army Wives comes to mind.
