The company he keeps 3

Read the devastatingly revealing bio of Valerie Jarrett – Obama’s closest adviser and the person who got Van Jones into the White House – by Ben Johnson at Front Page Magazine. It concludes:

An international, rootless wanderer abandoned by his father, and occasionally his mother, in search of authenticity, he [Obama] never felt at home until he found his roots, and himself, in the milieu of Hyde Park – a neighborhood big enough to encompass everyone from Marilyn Katz [see below] to Bill Ayers, from Tony Rezko’s vacant adjoining property to Louis Farrakhan’s wandering “security” force. And Valerie Jarrett. Is this what Jarrett reminds the Obamas of: the neighborhood that has been the president’s only true home and shaped or reinforced their values and identity? An elitist sanctuary of pampered radicals, racists, and terrorists, liberated of working class stiffs who bitterly cling to their guns and religion? Increasingly, it seems as though this is what “makes them who they are,” and is becoming the atmosphere Obama, with Jarrett’s help, is recreating in his administration.

Who is Marilyn Katz?

Who is this person to whom Jarrett is so indebted – and whom, we shall see, she calls a personal friend? Marilyn Katz provided “security” for Students for a Democratic Society at the 1968 Democratic Convention. Undercover Chicago policeman William Frapolly told prosecutors that during the Days of Rage, Katz showed protesters a new weapon to use against the police: “a cluster of nails that were sharpened at both ends, and they were fastened in the center.” Police later reported being hit by golf balls with nails through them, as well as excrement. Years later, Katz would insist her “guerrilla nails” were merely “a defensive weapon” to prevent “possible bad behavior by the police.”

  • winston – a large part of the responsibility for the terrible mistake of Obama's election lies with the mainstream media, both print and TV, which became shills for Obama and refused to publish anything that would discourage the electorate from voting for him. So almost nothing about his past was published to the general public. Many facts about his life are still unknown, such as records from the universities he attended. He has refused to let them be released. The left-wing media (the majority) failed utterly in their duty to the public. And they are still doing so, being slow to understand that if they ignore reality, it is not reality that will go away. Reality goes on accruing its consequences. What they are doing by destroying the public trust in them, is destroying themselves. Luckily we have the blogosphere to inform us, and Fox News, which are doing a good job of exposing the likes of Van Jones and ACORN, and encouraging the sort of mass protest we saw on Sept 12.

    • I hope you are right on that one. I fear for the future of the USA as long as the likes of Obama and Soros are around

  • I am really stunned. Still am… How could this person 0bama be elected? It amazes me how such an inexperienced, radical Marxist person could be elected to be the president of the only superpower of the planet. How could this happen?
