ABC recently jumped to cancel the “Roseanne” revival following an extremely misguided tweet penned by Roseanne Barr about former Obama adviser, Valerie Jarrett. (RELATED: ‘Roseanne’ Canceled on ABC After Crude Tweets).

However, history tells us that Jarrett has far more reprehensible skeletons in her closet than Barr. (RELATED: Benghazi Survivor Kris Paronto Comes to Roseanne’s Defense).

Operation Fast and Furious 

According to Department of Justice records obtained by Judicial Watch in October 2014, Jarrett “was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about [knowing about] the Fast and Furious scandal.” The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) infamously lost track of hundreds of weapons they secretly smuggled in Mexico, one of which was eventually used to murder a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

Ties to the Communist Party and the Muslim Brotherhood

According to FBI documents released by Judicial Watch in 2015, “the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.” Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was even listed “on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).”

As for Valerie herself, she is a well known “liberal extremist” who “still has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Secret nuclear talks with Iranian leaders

In 2012, Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot reported that Jarrett had engaged in secret talks in Bahrain with representatives of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Then in 2013, the Times of Israel further reported that the Geneva talks were a mere “facade,” as Jarrett had been conducting secret nuclear negotiations with Iranian leaders for “more than a year.”

Jarrett was famously born in Iran, where her Communist father moved after being discharged from the Army Medical Corps in 1955. It appears her loyalty lies with them rather than with America.

The Libya intervention

In 2016, Barack Obama called his unpreparedness in the Libya intervention his “worst mistake.” Well, he has Valerie Jarrett to thank for that. Jarrett and Hillary Clinton helped choreograph the ouster of the Muammar Gaddafi regime but failed to install an aggressive plan of action following the regime change. The result, of course, was the complete downfall of Libya.

Unpopularity in the White House

Jarrett was Obama’s closest adviser. But it appears the Obamas were the only ones who liked her.

Numerous people within Obama’s administration claimed that Jarrett’s involvement in Obama’s policy-making decisions was often out-of-bounds. According to former Defense Secretary Bob Gates, Jarrett often advised Obama on national security issues, despite having no experience or expertise in that area. Former Obama aide David Axelrod also resented Jarrett’s involvement with Obama’s campaign, writing in his memoir that she had “virtually no campaign experience, at any level.” Indeed, in November 2014, Politico’s Carol Felsenthal urged Obama to “Fire Valerie Jarrett,” writing:

Almost since the start of Barack Obama’s presidency, people who have actual, real duties in the West Wing of the White House—the working, executive part of the government, that is—have been urging him to do something about Valerie Jarrett. Push her into the East Wing, where she can hang out with Michelle Obama and the White House social secretary, or give her an ambassadorship—or something—but for Pete’s sake get her out of the way of the hard work of governing that needs to be done.

Unfortunately, Obama believed in nepotism over merit, and he reaped what he sowed in the end.
