Editor’s note: In 2008, WND thoroughly vetted President Obama’s
radical background. Many of those original exclusive reports, almost
entirely ignored by the establishment news media, currently are being
utilized four years later by some media outlets in the lead up to
this year’s presidential election. From now until election day, WND
will present its original investigations into Obama and his radical
ties with bonus updates. These reports are as important today as they
were in 2008. Following is the first in a series of articles aimed at
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’s family background and her initial introduction to Obama may
tie her to onetime Obama environmental adviser Van Jones’ radical
Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was an associate of Frank
Marshall Davis, the controversial labor movement activist who has
been identified as an early influence on Obama.
Vernon Jarrett and Davis worked together in 1940 in a Communist Party-
dominated organization, the Citizen’s Committee to Aid Packing House
Workers. The group’s own correspondence, previously uncovered by the
New Zeal blog, describes its communist influence. Many of its leaders
were tied to the Communist Party.
The pair also frequented the SouthSide Community Art Center, which
was dominated by communists. In addition, Davis and Vernon Jarrett
worked in the late 1940s on the communist-influenced, black-run
Chicago Defender newspaper.
In 1948, Jarrett started a radio show, “Negro Newsfront,” and went on
to become the Chicago Tribune’s first black syndicated columnist.
A Washington Post obituary of Jarrett notes he “stoked the political
embers in Chicago that led to the 1983 election of the city’s first
African-American mayor, Harold Washington.”
“Vernon Jarrett was a key influence in Washington’s decision to run
for the Chicago mayoralty and remained a key supporter through his
four-year tenure,” the newspaper reported.
Obama has hailed Washington’s victory as a motivation for him to move
to Chicago from New York. Washington was involved in communist-
dominated circles in Chicago.
Vernon Jarrett clearly watched the rise of Obama as an activist. When
Obama worked for Project Vote to register black voters with the
intent of aiding the senatorial campaign of Carol Moseley Braun,
Jones took note. Obama later took over Braun’s Senate seat.
Writing in the Chicago Sun-Times in 1992, Jarrett noted: “Good news!
Good news! Project Vote, a collectivity of 10 church-based community
organizations dedicated to black voter registration, is off and
running. … If Project Vote is to reach its goal of registering
150,000 out of an estimated 400,000 unregistered blacks
statewide, ‘it must average 10,000 rather than 7,000 every week,’
says Barack Obama, the program’s executive director.”
Valerie Jarrett married Vernon’s son, William Robert Jarrett, in 1983.
In 1987, she got her start in politics, working for Washington as
deputy corporation counsel for finance and development. She was
deputy chief of staff for Mayor Richard Daley, during which time she
hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Obama.
Valerie Jarrett went on to run the finances for Obama’s Senate bid in
2004, the year Vernon Jarrett died.
Currently, Jarrett is touted as one of Obama’s closest advisers. (©
