To Michelle, a ''Beard'' By Any Other Name Would Be The Same !
As a young single black woman, Michelle Robinson was a fixture in the home of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, who along with Rev. Jeremiah Wright ''arranged'' her marriage to Barack Obama, according to sources in Chicago who know the couple. ''If you want to understand Michelle Obama, you've got to go back to Jesse Jackson,'' a woman called ''Robyn'' for this article told to WND (America's Independent News Network).
Robyn, who spent several years years working for Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition, explained to the WND investigator in Chicago that Michelle Robinson ''just about grew up in Jesse Jackson's home. Jesse should have charged her rent and board for the amount of time she spent in his home instead of her own.'' Jackson's daughter, Santita, is still one of Michelle's best friends. Santita and Jesse Jr. call her ''sis,'' short for ''sister.'' Santita likes to say that she has known Michelle since they car-pooled together as high school classmates. Santita was maid-of-honor at Michelle and Barack's wedding and she is the godmother to the Obama's older daughter, Malia. Santita's brother, Jesse Jr., a Democratic Party member of the U.S. House (from Illinois), served as the national co-chairman of Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.
It all relates back to Trinity United Church of Christ and to the Jesse Jackson orbit of blacks here in Chicago who gave Obama legitimacy and helped him establish his identity as a black man,'' Robyn explained. ''The political socialist Left wanted to push a black into the presidency, and the key operatives in the Democratic Party decided long ago it wouldn't be Jesse Jackson (Sr.). Then Jesse wanted it to be his son, but Jesse Jr had serious drug and mental problems that we know about now. These were known about in the Party and Jesse Jr. was never going to be the black president. So, the political Left then chose Obama.''
Obama's retelling of an event most spouses remember precisely for the rest of their lives has caused confusion. Exactly when and how did he first meet Michelle Robinson? Obama stated he first met Michelle at university and were classmates. Not True!! The problem is that Michelle earned her degree from Harvard in June, 1988, and Obama did not arrive at Harvard law School until that fall, graduating in 1991. The common accepted story is that they first met in Chicago in 1989, when Barack took a summer job as an intern at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, and Michelle, who was employed as a lawyer at the firm, was assigned to be his mentor. On a number occasions she would take him to Trinity Church on Sunday where he met Rev. Wright and many of her upper middle class influential friends.
Political connections played large throughout Michelle's young life. Her father, Fraser C. Robinson lll, was a volunteer Democratic precinct captain in addition to his job in the boiler room at Chicago's water purification plant. As precinct captain, Robinson had power and influence, given his access to ''street money'' the Mayor Daley machine freely handed out to make sure South Side black voters turned out to vote for Democratic candidates. After Obama graduated in 1991 he returned to Chicago to work as a lawyer and as a community organiser and joined the Trinity Church congregation. Rev. Wright recognized his gay leanings and encouraged him to become member of the Down Low Club (exposed in my last posting), where he could meet other gay men in secret with Wright's blessing. Obama's participation in the gay bar and bathhouse scene got to be well known, but it was time to seriously groom him for politics.
The selection of Michelle Robinson for marriage to Obama was made by Jesse Jackson, and Rev. Wright agreed it would be a good combination. Robyn explained, ''Michelle came from a political family; she was intelligent even if she didn't really like to work. Wright knew Obama was gay, but he needed the cover of a wife if he were to succeed in politics, what gays would call 'a beard.''' Jackson explained to Michelle that she would live a life of luxury once Obama was president, and that she never again would have to work and worry about money. Carolyn added that Michelle was ''essentially treated like she was Jesse's daughter, and Michelle's connections in Chicago were going to be a key to Obama's rise to power.'' Robyn elaborated, ''Michelle was nasty (photo), and most straight guys would never be able to put up with her moods and temperament. But Obama really didn't care. Michelle had the credentials and she looked the part. Obama wasn't interested in her for sex, he just needed a 'fag-hag.'''
In 1991, during their engagement, top Obama adviser Marxist Valerie Jarrett, then serving as the deputy chief of staff to Mayor Richard M. Daley, hired Michelle to a job in the mayor's office. ''Michelle hated working for the city even more than she hated working at Sidley Austin,'' Robyn told WND. ''She didn't last for long at the law firm and at the City Hall, where she worked under the Mayor, Michelle had one of those 'Jesses hires' positions. These are patronage jobs where recipients did nothing except collect a check for doing very little.'' When Jarrett left Mayor Daley's office to head Chicago's Department of Planning and Development, she took Michelle with her. Later, Jarrett became chairwoman of the Chicago Medical Center, and gave Michelle ''a cushy job'' at the medical center with a salary of $317,000!
It was a lot more than Barack was getting teaching constitutional law at the local university.
The Way I See It....nearly two decades ago, Ms Valarie Jarrett swept the young lawyers of an arranged marriage (photo) under her wing, introduced them to a wealthier and better-connected Chicago than their own, and eventually secured contacts and money from Jewish Marxists and Socialist Blacks that was essential to Barack Obama's long-shot to a Senate victory. Michelle almost divorced him when he failed to get elected the first time, but Jackson and Wright forced her to stick with him. Edward Klein, in his book, The Amateur (2012) , describes Jarrett as the ''de facto'' president of the United States and ''the best friend of the first lady and soul mate of the president.''
