Who Is Valerie Jarrett?

The Hard-Left Prog Establishment does not want you to know
Valerie Jarrett currently works as a senior advisor to U.S. president, Barack Obama, and has been referred to as “the other side of Obama’s brain.”

Born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents, Jarrett spent the first five years of her life there before her family moved to London. Jarrett comes from a family of highly influential leftists.

In 1983, she married Dr. William Robert Jarrett, son of famed Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett was a one time political associate of Communist Party USA activist and Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis.

Jarrett is the great niece of prominent Democratic Party leftist Vernon Jordan and her maternal grandfather was Robert Taylor, the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority. Jarrett is a personal friend of Marilyn Katz who worked with Students for a Democratic Society, the 1960s group that banded radical left youth and students together under the New Left movement.

After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School, Jarrett went to work for Chicago’s first African-American mayor, Democratic Socialists of America-supported Harold Washington. After Washington’s death in 1987, she stayed on under his successor, Richard Daley.

In City Hall, she and her colleague Susan Sher, recruited Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama and Jarrett quickly melded her way into their lives. In 2004, Jarrett served as Finance Chair for Obama’s 2004 run for the U.S. Senate.

In September 2008, Chicago based socialist journal In These Times contributing editor Laura Washington suggested Valerie Jarrett for Urban Development Secretary based on her work as CEO of the Habitat Co. – “a clout-heavy Chicago real estate firm” – and the court-appointed overseer of the city’s massive plan to transform its notoriously decrepit public housing developments. Jarrett served as Senior Advisor to Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and subsequently served as Co-Chair of the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team.

The Barry-Harry Showdown

O-Camp asks America to suspend disbelief, like the movies


Novel Police Union Bargaining Tactic Cited

Not unlike the bogus 'Kimberlin' 911 calls that send armed SWAT raids to the residences of outspoken constitutionalists
The mystery caller who falsely accused Costa Mesa Councilman Jim Righeimer of driving drunk is a private investigator linked to a law firm that worked for the Costa Mesa Police Association.

Dispatch tapes obtained by The Orange County Register identified the caller as Chris Lanzillo. Lanzillo is a fired Riverside police officer who according to a published report got a medical retirement and became a private investigator. Lanzillo worked sometimes for the Upland law firm of Lackie, Dammeier & McGill, which until late last week represented the Costa Mesa police union.

The union and city are tied up in contract negotiations.

At a news conference Friday, Righeimer blamed employee unions for the "911" call that sent an officer to his home to conduct a sobriety test. Righeimer had just arrived from a local bar, where he had two Diet Cokes. He passed the test, and now wants the District Attorney's Office to look into the incident, noting a similar event in Buena Park in 2010.
