You know, there are people who might actually believe that this doesn’t matter: Obama’s Top Adviser Valerie Jarrett: Her Dad, Maternal Grandpa, and Father-in-Law Were ‘Hardcore Communists’.
FBI files obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch reveal that the father, maternal grandfather, and father-in-law of President Barack Obama’s closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, “were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.”. . . .
According to Judicial Watch, Jarrett’s father, Dr. James E. Bowman, a pathologist and geneticist, “had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals.” The FBI files obtained by Judicial Watch show that “in 1950, Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage.”
As the New York Times reported, Alfred Stern and his wife, Martha Dodd Stern, “were indicted in absentia on espionage charges on Sept. 9, 1957.The indictment charged them with conspiring to act as Soviet agents, receiving American military, commercial and industrial information and transmitting it to the Soviet Union. The indictment charged that they used their house in Ridgefield, Conn., for meetings with Soviet agents.” . . .
Judicial Watch further stated that the Jarrett family Communist ties “also include a business partnership between Jarrett’s maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor (1899-1957) and [Alfred] Stern, the Soviet agent associated with her dad.”
Valerie Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett (1917-2004), “was also another big-time Chicago Communist,” according to FBI files obtained by Judicial Watch. “For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s 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),” reported Judicial Watch.
According to the FBI documents, Vernon Jarrett’s job was to “write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would ‘disseminate the Communist Party line among … the middle class.”
And for those who don’t know who Valerie Jarrett is, she was President of the United States from 2009 to 2017.
