CAMEROTA: The breaking news that we just had moments ago were the new job numbers, the lowest in anybodys memory, 3.9 percent unemployment rate. Its been 15 months of Donald Trumps presidency. Do you give him credit for that?
JARRETT: Look, I think we have to look at it over a longer horizon than that. If you think about what the economy was like when President Obama took office, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. Under his watch the unemployment rate dropped in half and its encouraging to see that were continuing to make progress. We want to see wages go up and I think thats an important focus and....

Who cares what Hussein’s Iranian hack thinks.
Well, yeah. In the same way we should give Jimmy Carter credit for Ronald Reagan. If Carter had only been an average bad president like, say, LBJ, then Reagan would have won narrowly if at all.
From Judicial Watch:
FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarretts Family
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obamas trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.
Jarretts dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved to Iran to work, the FBI records show.
According to Bowmans government file the Association of Internes and Medical Students is an organization that has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington D.C. and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists. JW also obtained documents on Bowman from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) showing that the FBI was brought into investigate him for his membership in a group that follows the communist party line. The Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between Jarretts maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Stern, the Soviet agent associated with her dad.
Jarretts father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett familys Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBIs Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would disseminate the Communist Party line among the middle class.
Its been well documented that Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago lawyer and longtime Obama confidant, is a liberal extremist who wields tremendous power in the White House. Faithful to her roots, she still has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Jarrett and her family also had strong ties to Frank Marshal Davis, a big Obama mentor and Communist Party member with an extensive FBI file.
JW has exposed Valerie Jarretts many transgressions over the years, including her role in covering up a scandalous gun-running operation carried out by the Department of Justice (DOJ). Last fall JW obtained public records that show Jarrett was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious, a disastrous experiment in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
In 2008 JW got documents linking Valerie Jarrett, who also served as co-chairman of Obamas presidential transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin Tony Rezko. According to the documents obtained from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago slum projects operated by Rezko.

The Jarrett Connection.
Proof That Obamas Hawaii and Chicago Communist Networks Were Linked?
It is now well established that Barack Obama was linked to the Hawaiian Communist Party network through his boyhood/teenage mentor Frank Marshall Davis.
It is also well known that after moving to Chicago, Obama linked up with the local communist networks.
Manning Marable, a leader of the Communist Party offshoot Committees of Correspondence for Democracy&Socialism claims that Obama understands what socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years
This leads to two key questions.
A. Were the Hawaii and Chicago networks connected?
B . Did Obamas connection to Frank Marshall Davis in any way influence his progress up the Chicago political ladder?
If the answer is yes to both, there are significant implications.
It means that that the Communist Party USA was watching Obama from an early age and was willing to help his political career.
Frank Marshall Davis was active in the Chicago Communist Party until he moved to Hawaii in late 1948.
I speculated in this post that Davis may have known left wing journalist Vernon Jarrett in post war Chicago. A connection would be significant because the Jarrett family has played a very important role in Obamas rise to power.
Both Jarrett and Davis worked in the communist dominated South Side Community Art Center and on the communist influenced Chicago Defender newspaper, in late 1940s Chicago.
I have since found conclusive evidence that Davis and Jarrett not only knew each other, but worked together in another Communist Party dominated organisation-The Citizens Committee to Aid Packing House Workers.
organized to support the united packing-House workers of America C.I.O. now on strike
The letter above is dated April 12, 1948. Note that CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations) was at the time a communist controlled labor federation.
To the left is a partial list of Citizens Committee to Aid Packing House Workers officials.
Note the names Oscar C. Brown (Treasurer) and Louise T. Patterson (Assistant Treasurer), F.M. Davis and Vernon Jarrett.
To confirm the connection, below is a close-up of the committees publicity committee. Note that it is chaired by Vernon Jarrett and includes Frank Marshall Davis.
That the Citizens Committee was communist influenced is beyond doubt.
Louise T Patterson
Louise T Patterson was the wife of Illinois Communist Party vice-chairman and attorney William Patterson and a prominent Party member in her own right. Louise Patterson was still a leader of the Illinois Communist Party well into the 1970s.
Further down the page was list of the organizations Food and groceries committee. Named among them was Ishmael Flory, a leader of the Illinois Communist Party from the late 1930s until his death in 2004.
Incidentally, one of the eulogists at Florys funeral was Timuel Black, a well known member of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy&Socialism and a long time friend and political supporter of Barack Obama.
Oscar C Brown
Oscar C Brown-later a famous jazz musician under the name Oscar Brown jnr, was also at the time a Communist Party member. he joined in 1946 and was expelled around 1954.
In 1948 Vernon Jarrett left his job as journalist at the Chicago Defender to start a black oriented radio show Negro Newsfront with Oscar Brown.
Jarrett was clearly on the far left and almost certainly, like his colleague Frank Marshall Davis, a covert member of the Communist Party.
Jarrett worked hard promoting socialist causes including the communist controlled Progressive Party.
Jarrett and henry wallace
Vernon Jarrett went on to become the Chicago Tribunes first black syndicated columnist and was a founder of the National Association of Black Journalists.
According to a Washington Post obituary May 25th 2004
Mr. Jarrett continually shone a light on African American history and pertinent issues in Chicago and throughout the country. He stoked the political embers in Chicago that led to the 1983 election of the citys first African American mayor, Harold Washington.
Vernon Jarrett with Harold Washington
Vernon Jarrett was a key influence in Washingtons decision to run for the Chicago mayoralty and remained a key supporter through his four year tenure.
Harold Washington defeated the Daley machine to win the mayoralty backed by a coalition led by Chicagos Communist Party and the local branch of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
DSA member and socialist historian Paul Buhle, wrote in a 1992 article for the Encyclopedia of the American Left;
Communists also gained from long-standing political contacts in the black community. Victories of black mayoral and congressional candidates with decades old ties to the CP a short list would include Coleman Young and George Crocket in Detroit, Gus Newport in Berkeley, and somewhat more ambiguously, Harold Washington in Chicago
Washington was actively involved in Communist Party fronts such as the US Peace Council and the Chicago Committee on Southern Africa, right up to winning the mayoralty-with Party support. After victory he stacked his administration full of communists, socialists and sympathisers to create one of the most far left administrations in US history-cut short only by his pre-mature death after four years in office.
I quote from remarks by Illinois Communist Party organiser John Bachtell to a Special District Meeting on African American Equality and Building the Communist Party and Young Communist League, Chicago, IL September 30, 2007.
The legacy of Harold Washingtons election and his administration is in the collective consciousness not only of the African American community, but the entire city. Many of his democratizing achievements endure 20 years later.
This was also reflected in the historic election of Barack Obama. Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election. Once again Obamas campaign reflected the electoral voting unity of the African American community, but also the alliances built with several key trade unions, and forces in the Latino and white communities.
It also reflected a breakthrough among white voters. In the primary, Obama won 35% of the white vote and 7 north side wards, in a crowded field. During the general election he won every ward in the city and all the collar counties. This appeal has continued in his presidential run.
Barack Obama has stated that Harold Washingtons victory in 1983 was the spur that made him leave New York to move to Chicago.
Vernon Jarrett was also a fan of Barack Obama. He watched his career from its early stages and became an ardent supporter.
Carol Moseley Braun
In 1992 Obama worked for the ACORN offshoot, Project Vote to register black voters in aid of the Senate Campaign of Carol Moseley Braun. Unsurprisingly Moseley Braun also had strong Communist Party ties and was Harold Washingtons legislative floor leader.
Obama helped Moseley Braun win her Senate seat, then took it over himself in 2004-backed of course by the same communist/socialist alliance that had elected his political predecessors Harold Washington and Carol Moseley Braun.
Commenting on the 1992 race, Vernon Jarrett wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times of August 11th 1992;
Good news! Good news! Project Vote, a collectivity of 10 church-based community organizations dedicated to black voter registration, is off and running. Project Vote is increasing its rolls at a 7,000-per-week clip If Project Vote is to reach its goal of registering 150,000 out of an estimated 400,000 unregistered blacks statewide, it must average 10,000 rather than 7,000 every week, says Barack Obama, the programs executive director...
Dee Myles is a Chicago activist and chair of the Education Commission of the Communist Party USA. In 2004, after Vernon Jarrets death from cancer she penned this tribute for the Peoples Weekly World of June 5th.
Readers like me can be extremely selective of the journalists we read habitually We are selective about the journalists to whom we become insatiably addicted, and once hooked we develop a constructive love affair without the romance
Such was my experience with Vernon Jarrett, an African American journalist in Chicago who died at the age of 86 on May 23. I became a Vernon Jarrett addict, and I am proud of it!
Vernon Jarretts career as a journalist in Chicago began and ended at the Chicago Defender, the African American daily paper. In between, he was the first Black journalist at the Chicago Tribune, and I first began to read his articles during his tenure at the Chicago Sun-Times Jarretts claim to fame is that he was a partisan of the cause of African Americans in the broad democratic tradition of Paul Robeson and W.E.B. DuBois
Robeson and DuBois were both Communist Party members. On April 9th, 1998 at Chicagos South Shore Cultural Center, Jarrett hosted a Paul Robeson Citywide Centennial Celebration event, with his old comrade and Party sympathiser Margaret Burroughs and former Communist Party members Studs Terkel and his old friend Oscar C.Brown.
Dee Myles continues;
Jarrett was fanatical about African Americans registering and voting in mass for socially conscious candidates. He championed Harold Washington like a great warrior, and this March, from his hospital bed, wrote an article appealing to Black Chicago to turn out to vote for Barack Obama in the Illinois primaries. Obama astounded everyone with an incredible landslide victory as the progressive, Black candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois. From his sickbed, Vernon Jarrett issued a clarion call, and the people responded.
The Jarrett/Obama conection did not end with Vernon Jarretts death-it moved to a higher level with his famous daughter-in-law Valerie Jarrett.
A former Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development under Harold Washington, Jarrett continued to work in the mayors office into the 1990s.
In 1991, while Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama.
Later Valerie Jarrett ran the finances for Obamas 2004 Senate bid and served as treasurer of Obamas HOPEFUND.
The relationship is more than professional-Jarrett is regarded as one of the Obamas closest friends and advisors.
Valerie Jarrett and Obama
According to Take Political Action May 24th 2008;
Shes always been the other side of Baracks brain. Thats how an Obama insider described Valerie Jarrett as an Obama campaign aide announced Thursday night the former CTA chief and current Habitat Co. CEO is taking on a larger role to help her close friend win his White House bid.
The development comes as Jarrett, a charter member of Sen. Barack Obamas kitchen cabinet, has been formalizing her portfolio and stepping up the pace within the past few weeks as a top advisor within the campaign.
Though she will be part-time, Jarrett will be one of the most visible and powerful African-Americans in the top rungs of the Obama operation Today Valerie Jarrett serves as one of three Senior Advisors to President Obama.She is Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, and Chairs the White House Commission on Women and Girls.
Frank Marshall Davis works closely in communist causes with Vernon Jarrett in Chicago. Davis moves to hawaii where he eventually meets and mentors a young Barack Obama. Then Obama moves to Chicago where his career is promoted by both Daviss old colleague Vernon Jarrett and the Communist Party. Vernon Jarretts daughter-in-law employs Barack Obamas fiance, befriends the family and becomes one of President Obamas most trusted advisors.
The Communist Party throws its entire weight behind Obamas presidential campaign.Are we expected to believe that this is all mere coincidence?Would there be an Obama/Jarrett relationship today, if there had been no Frank Marshall Davis/Jarrett connection through the Communist Party of post war Chicago?
What role, if any, has the modern Communist Party USA played in fostering that relationship in more recent times?
The Communist Party USA continues to back their friend Barack Obama.
How deeply has the Communist Party been involved in advancing Obamas political career-through the Jarrett family, or by other means?
The answers to these questions will have major implications for the future of whats left of the free world.

We should post it twice!
Like giving a nail the credit after you fix a flat;
giving Typhoid Mary credit after the doctors find a vaccine...
Obama’s 8 years were, Muslims ,Gay and Drive All Jobs Away . Obama blamed Bush for everything and now he’s claiming credit for everything Trump does , OMG ,LOL
Why don’t we just give Neville Chamberlain the credit for winning the Battle of Britain?
Shouldn’t she be busy looking for another Stormy Daniels since this one ain’t working?
She is among the worst of Deep State criminals. I am sure she played a critical role in the disastrous Iranian nuclear deal. She like Obama is an extreme America hater. For additional information on Jarrett and every deep state actor, I suggest visiting www.discoverthenetworks.org.
Obama’s Forever house guest ,LOL
Obama took no bad credit for 6.5 years, so it’s not hard to figure out why he now takes good credit for all things Trump has done.
In Obama’s mind (laughing, at least what passes for one...) Trump will deserve “some” good credit starting around 2021.
Until then the Kenyan thinks he’s the mover/shaker.
What a blithering idiot.
A decent investigation of Valerie jarrett’s white house years would undoubtedly lead to multiple felony indictments.
Why don't you credit Jimmay Carter with it as well?
Well, without the Obama malaise and poor economy, how could President Trump have reversed all of his policies and trigger such tremendous growth? So, hat’s off to Obama for showing the future how NOT to do things.
STFU Vuh-JayJay. Get back to planning your mass shootings with the FBI, you evil b*tch.
Only because Obama was SO awful that we refused to vote for another Dem thus ushering in presidency of Mr. Donald Trump. I am sure that is what Val means. Right?
Just like Obama, his affirmative action hires are incompetent and stupid.
Little known fact; “The basic unit of worthlessness is one ValerieJarrett. It is defined as one one-trillionth of a give-a-sh*t.
We are blessed that Dorkbama and his minions are all around six sigma to the left on the Bell Curve. It provides great entertainment whilst simultaneously providing all but the most inept some folks to feel superior to.
