Skip to comments.The Vetting - Valerie Jarrett Keeps Obama Close to Radical Roots
Posted on 04/02/2012 2:28:16 PM PDT by Nachum
Valerie Jarrett is not only one of President Barack Obamas closest advisors; she also is one of the most radical, with close connections to the Chicago left that nurtured Obama in his early political career.
The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American expatriates) found a foothold in Chicago politics through her marriage to Dr. William Robert Jarrett, whose father Vernon held sway as a columnist on the Chicago Sun-Times--for a time, the citys only major black columnist.
In 1991, Vernon Jarrett enthusiastically promoted a Chicago visit by professor Derrick Bell, who was still on voluntary unpaid leave from Harvard Law School, in protest at the facultys refusal to hire visiting professor Regina Austin.
Barack Obama, who had joined Bell in that protest, had just graduated from Harvard and had begun work in Chicago at the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland, a prominent local civil rights firm.
Bells visit had been arranged by the Community Renewal Society, a left-wing group that wanted Bell to help it launch a racial justice agenda across the Chicago area. He addressed the Societys annual dinner, delivering a radical speech on the permanence of racism. Describing the civil rights movement as childlike, trusting, believing, and hopelessly naive, he suggested a more confrontational approach to race relations.
In addition to the dinner, Bell was invited to conduct a workshop with leading Chicago community organizers. Those invited included Obamas pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, as well as Father Michael Pfleger, both of whom became notorious during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Obama was not invited, but his boss, Judson Miner, was among the community activists listed as participants in the Societys workshop.
Vernon Jarrett enthusiastically plugged the dinner in his column in the Sun-Times on October 22, 1991, in radical, alarmist terms:

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Iranian-born Jarrett...
Now that says boatloads.
I noticed that reference too. I would love to get her on the record on her views of Persia.
Is she good at forging documents; birth certificates, Selective Service cards, etc?
I have an Iranian friend I’ve known for 15 years.
Based on what she has told me, there are either Iranians who want their country Westernized again or ultra radicals who live to destroy the USA and Israel.
Anyone want to take bets on which side Valerie sits on?
Pinging you to an Obama vetting update in case you’re interested.
These radical anti american socialist democratic rats have no business running this country. The election of obama will go down in history as the greatest mistake in the history of elections. We can thank the socialist frauds in the democrat party and the MSM for pulling the wool over our heads. It won’t happen again and the ship will be righted come November.
I am always interested in anything that exposes these criminals!
I do believe old Billy Ayers did the Sel. Serivice card. He had experience with that kind of stuff.
I’ve thought for quite a while that Barry ending up in the hands of Tom Ayers was originally through that old drunk Commie Frank (maybe or not sperm donor of Barry)...through VJ’s father in law. Oh, what a tangled web we weave....
It’s all going to come out. Drip, drip, drip.
