After 7-1/2 years you would think I ought to know all of this but I know almost none of it. Even the title is a little misleading: Valerie Jarrett: How Much Control Does She Have Over Obama and Clinton?. The article is the first succinct political bio of Valerie Jarrett I have come across. Here is the nub:
There are a number of things about Valerie Jarrett that are worrisome. In 1977, while delivering a speech at Stanford University, she was quoted as calling herself an American citizen who seeks “to help change America to be a more Islamic country.” She went on to say, “My faith guides me and I feel like it is going well in the transition of using freedom of religion in America against itself.” This is an extremely alarming and even subversive comment, delivered right around the time that Islamic terrorism was beginning to set its roots in the Middle East.
There is more. She is known to have ties to the terrorist William Ayers. Her father in law, one Vernon Jarrett, is an official member of the Communist party who is also an associate of Frank Marshall Davis, himself a Communist activist who played mentor to Barack Obama during the future president’s childhood. We have here an Iranian Muslim who has stated her intention to transform America into an Islamic country, her desire to use the nation’s freedom of religion as a weapon against it, and who has highly questionable associates with terrorist and Communist connections. It is bad enough that this woman has our President’s ear; what is even worse is that it seems to go beyond that. Despite being an appointee who was never elected by the American people, Valerie Jarrett appears to have real influence in the White House.
An insider in the Obama administration has confirmed that Jarrett supported trading five detained terrorists in a prisoner swap for a single US Army Sergeant (Bowe Bergdahl) who had deserted his post. She was against tough treatment of the Islamic regime of Iran, and she is personally offended by the term “Islamic Terrorism”. Sure enough, our President to this day has refused to even utter the words, committed America to a disastrous “deal” with Iran that gives the rogue nation almost everything it wants, and went ahead with the lopsided prisoner exchange. Incidentally, the Obama administration swore that the terrorists released posed no threat – there is virtually no evidence that this is actually true.
Did you know any of this? Nothing about the Obama administration should be a surprise after you have read just this, and undoubtedly there is much more.
