Glenn Beck Exposes Valerie Jarrett’s Radicalism

September 16, 2009

Thanks to Glenn Beck, the nation is beginning to see how high up the Obama administration’s chain-of-command radicalism is embedded. The problem doesn’t originate with Van Jones or some low-level staffer with ties to ACORN, but where the buck stops: the president, his wife, and their closest mutual friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett. On his radio show Tuesday, Beck interviewed Scott Baker, now of Breitbart TV, a self-described “news junkie” who clearly did his research on Jarrett.[1]

Jarrett’s relationship with the Obamas, incoming administration radicals, and a socialist revolutionary who says she “probably” rejects violence (and allegedly offered Rod Blagojevich access to Obama’s fundraisers if he appointed Jarrett to Obama’s senate seat) filled up 4,000 words in my article for Monday’s FrontPage Magazine. Jarrett is, by all accounts, the closest friend and adviser to the first family. Obama says he doesn’t make a decision without her, and Jarrett described her relationship with the president by saying, “We have kind of a mind meld.” That’s scary, since she recruited Van Jones, Regulation Czar Cass Sunstein, and FCC Chief Diversity Officer Mark Lloyd.[2] Administration staff said without her intervention, white advisers may have rejected “the often-legitimate concerns voiced by black leaders like [Al] Sharpton.” It’s more disturbing yet to explore the claustrophobic social circle of extremists she is facilitating into the White House.

Michelle Obama owes her career at Chicago’s city hall to Valerie Jarrett. In turn, Jarrett owes her secular career in real estate (at a firm called Habitat) to Marilyn Katz, an SDS radical who showed Days of Rage protesters how to fuse nails together to throw at oncoming police officers in 1968 Chicago. She is now a high-powered PR exec for Chi-town government agencies, a 40-year associate of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, and according to Michelle Obama’s biographer, a vibrant part of the Obamas’ social circle. She spent the next 20 years fighting for a socialist “revolution” and promoting groups like the ACLU, Mother Jones, and UAW Local 719.

But Katz’s anti-American extremism was decades ago, when Barack Obama was seven, right? Asked six years ago if she had evolved since ’68, she said while she, like Ayers, regrets “nothing,” she “would probably reject violence as a useful form of revolution.” Probably?

In 2004, Katz endorsed John Kerry but acknowledged his imperfection, writing, “The day after Bush’s defeat, the U.S. will still be an imperialist power.” Like all radicals, her all-consuming focus is transforming the nation into a socialist haven, adapting her techniques as the situation requires.

She thought Obama (for whom she raised tens of thousands of dollars) and Jarrett were the best instruments for this purpose. Rod Blagojevich writes in his new book that Katz contacted him after Obama’s election and “indicated that if I appointed Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate, the Obama people would help me raise money from their network of contributors across the country.” Jarrett declined to pursue the seat, but repaid Katz by inviting her patron to attend the Obama administration’s 37th anniversary of Title IX in July.

Baker picked up a few extra strands in the radio interview:

In fact, when you look even at Van Jones, one of the things that we looked at that Pam Key over at Naked Emporer News turned up was that Van Jones spoke in 1998 at a conference in Chicago, was the first Black Radical Congress [at which] Jeremiah Wright was also a speaker.

Though the Van Jones-Rev. Wright tie was perhaps a one-time affair, they share a common ideology.

The far greater threat is a stealth adviser who establishes the Obamas’s “whole notion of authenticity” by circumscribing their social reference to a world where Marilyn Katz, Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, and Louis Farrakhan dictate the limits of acceptable debate. Understanding Jarrett’s influence over Obama is key to understanding him and the quasi- or overtly socialist advisers he’s hoisting upon our country. (Read Baker’s interview and my expose.)

    Yer right. Ugly…
    I’ve never seen the country so divided…by one who was to unite us. I knew that was a lie from the get go.
    Wright said it all. Obama didn’t have to.
    When I see a guy hangin’ out with say…bikers. I figure he has something in common with them. Same same Obama. He hangs with people that hate me for being a Capitalist Pig…
    It’s time our government once again feared the people rather than show open disdain and hatred for them.

    Obama is a liar and Truth is
    killing his Marxist agenda.

    Valerie Jarrett is the carrier of the dirt to and from the underground

    We have to say, whatever bad instincts she reinforces in Barack and Michelle Obama, they are the Obamas’ instincts…..

      Agree, Jarret affirms and lends credence to Pres. Obama’s already seeded ideations. Those seeds have sprouted; we must pinch them off before they get their leaves, grow to flowered marturity and reseed.

      Ben Johnson et al, Keep up the good work!!

    Valerie Jarrett is a slum lord. The voice on this video is hard to take, but the info on Jarrett is revealing.

    I believe that all these commies in our country were taken off guard when the USSR collapsed. They were continuing to lay their commie ground work when it happened. Then they got the lying commie Clintons in place.

    Now that Russia was going free market, helping to establish freedom of religion, and working to free itself from communism, the Clinton’s continued the expansion of NATO, introduction of AMerican bases near the Russian borders and putting political and economic pressures on the newly non-communist Russia. See Russia was now the enemy of the commies not their leader anymore. That is why commie George Soros tried to undermine the ruble.

    I know many older Russian people, refugees from the Communist USSR, at my church and all of them tell me that the USA right now is looking like the beginning of the USSR, after the Revolution, when the Reds made their biggest moves on ALL private property, professional people like doctors and business.

    My older Serbian friends say the USA under Obama is beginning to look like Yugoslavia right after Tito took over. SOCIALISE everything!! Top to bottom. QUICK, QUICK!!

    Is this scary, YOU BET!!

    The Commie technique of getting control of food supplies and starving the opposition, is NEXT!! You have all heard of food nazis… well they are really FOOD COMMIES!!

    The subversion began in Congress, unabated. Look at all Crooks in suits gladhanding one another as they have gotten their man in the White house.

    With their propoganda media in place, next branch to conquer, the Supreme Court.

    Oooops…forgot about Fox News and the internet.

    Never before, has there been an outright attack against a network that has had the guts to report honestly about all the corruption taking place. If they weren’t guilty, Fox would not be under fire.

    The reaction speaks for itself.

    It wouldn’t surpise me one bit if Barney Frank doesn’t write a bill outlawing dessent.
