Was Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s closest advisers, introduced to the president’s political circles by her father-in-law, a communist sympathizer who worked with the radical Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis?
Jarrett reportedly interviewed Obama’s former environmental adviser Van Jones for his White House position from which he resigned this past weekend. WND exposed Jones is an admitted black nationalist and radical communist.
Jarrett defended Jones after his appointment in March. She stated in an interview that the White House staff were "so delighted to be able to recruit him into the White House."
"We were watching him, uh, really, for as long as he’s been active out in Oakland. And all the creative ideas he has. And so now, we have captured that. And we have all that energy in the White House," she said.
In the vicinity of Oakland, Calif., Jones founded several radical organizations, including the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, as well as the socialist-oriented Ella Baker Human Rights Center.
Fox News yesterday reported the White House said Jones never filled out a seven-page questionnaire the Obama team previously touted as necessary for incoming administration officials, leaving some to speculate Jarrett may have been instrumented in pushing Jones through.
Jarrett’s family background and her initial introduction to Obama may tie her to Jones’ radical ideology.
