Pinpointing the real source of the problem


– No Bid Contract –

Did Jarrett And Michelle Pick Incompetent Website Firm?

Health Fail:’s implosion may be due to one of its major developers being selected less for its technical competence than for cronyism. Perhaps the White House was hoping for a friends and family discount.

Why pick a Canadian firm with a French name to help develop the official ObamaCare website? It certainly wasn’t based on the track record in developing health care software of CGI Federal, the IT contractor that orchestrated most of the website.

CGI Federal is a wholly owned subsidiary of Canada’s CGI Group (CGI stands for “Conseillers en Gestion et Informatique” in French, which roughly translates to “Information Systems and Management Consultants”).

Its performance on Ontario, Canada’s health care medical registry for diabetes sufferers was so poor that officials ditched the $46.2 million contract after three years of missed deadlines, the Washington Examiner has reported.

CGI is also the company behind the $2.7 billion failed, Liberal-launched Canadian Gun Registry that was so plagued with corruption and mismanagement it brought on an investigation by Canadian Auditor General Sheila Fraser.

The company is deeply embedded in Canada’s single-payer system, which is the direction President Obama’s health care policies are driving us. CGI has provided IT services to the Canadian Ministries of Health in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Saskatchewan, as well as to the national health provider, Health Canada, according to CGI’s website.

George Schindler, CGI Group president for U.S. and Canada, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company won the ObamaCare contract, a pattern we’ve seen in green-energy stimulus money going to companies like Solyndra.

As it happens, the Daily Caller reports that Michelle Obama’s college roomie Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is a senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million ObamaCare enrollment website at

There may be another Canadian connection as well.

Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura, is married to Tony Balkissoon. He is the son of Bas Balkissoon, a member of the Ontario legislature whose jobs have included, among other things, a stint as parliamentary assistant to the minister of Health and Long-Term Care from 2007-10. It’s all in the family.

A major decision such as choosing’s prime developer certainly would not be made without Jarrett’s approval. Her influence is so great, as we have pointed out, she called off raids to get Osama bin Laden three times for political reasons.

Both President Obama and Balkissoon, the Liberal MPP (Member of Provincial Parliament) for Scarborough-Rouge River in Ontario, were recently in Chicago for Balkissoon’s son’s wedding to Jarrett’s daughter. Ontario campaign finance records show CGI also donated money to Canada’s Liberal Party, to which Balkissoon belongs.

“At the 290-guest wedding of his son Tony to Valerie Jarrett’s daughter Laura, Bas Balkissoon was seen in deep conversation with Barack Obama and Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder,” the Toronto Star said. We doubt they were asking for wedding planning tips.

“The Balkissoon-Jarrett marriage is one of several links between Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals and Obama. From 2000 until 2002, David Axelrod, another key adviser to the president, was a paid McGuinty strategist,” reported the Star on June 20, 2012.

And Obama’s former top economic adviser Larry Summers was involved in 2011 in the failed federal prime ministerial campaign of Liberal Michael Ignatieff.

Again, why pick a Canadian firm with a French name to help develop the official ObamaCare website? Cronyism is the Chicago way and the way of this administration. It certainly had nothing to do with the health and welfare of the American people.

But then, what are friends and family for?

Yet another revelation, CGI is also the company behind the $2.7 billion failed, Liberal-launched Canadian Gun Registry that was so plagued with corruption and mismanagement it brought on an investigation by Canadian Auditor General Sheila Fraser.

Of course those with any casual knowledge of Valerie Jarrett’s background and history with the Chicago mob would expect this kind of an operation throughout government. Obama’s whole administration is based on cronyism, so why should this be any different.

Valerie Jarrett is the obvious leader behind this pack of liars and thieves…and she is along with her mentors who got her where she is today…all part of the Communist Progressive tribal mentality who have seriously taken over and undermined this once great nation. When you see her parents history as Communists and who they associated with…it’s not hard to also see Jarett follow suite…and then of course usher in Obama…some exerts following:

Jarrett’s maternal grandfather was a Chicagoan named Robert Taylor, who in the 1940s was involved with such communist fronts as the American Peace Mobilization and the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee….. Also a member of these groups was Frank Marshall Davis, the communist journalist who in the 1970s would mentor a young Barack Obama.

Jarrett’s mother (and Robert Taylor’s daughter) is early-childhood-education author Barbara Taylor Bowman, who co-founded a Chicago-based graduate school in child development known as the Erikson Institute, named after the psychoanalyst Erik Erikson; in 1950 Erikson became a hero to the left by choosing to resign from his professorship at the University of California rather than sign an anti-communist loyalty oath as the school required. Indicative of the Erikson Institute’s radical political orientation is the fact that its board of trustees has included, in addition to Bowman, such figures as Tom Ayers (father of the former Weather Underground terrorist and lifelong Marxist Bill Ayers) and Bernardine Dohrn (longtime wife of Bill Ayers). Bill Ayers, for his part, called Bowman “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book A Kind and Just Parent, noting that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama.”

Vernon Jarrett was a pioneering black journalist who in the 1940s wrote columns for the communist-influenced Chicago Defender extolling Communist poet Langston Hughes and lifelong Stalinists W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson. Also in the 1940s, Mr. Jarrett was a leader of the Chicago chapter of American Youth for Democracy—youth wing of the Communist Party USA. He also served on a publicity committee for the Packinghouse Workers Union, a Chicago-based entity dominated by the CPUSA. In each of these endeavors, Mr. Jarrett had close contact with Frank Marshall Davis.

Mr. He freelanced at Kansas City’s The Call from 1954-58, then returned to Chicago to become the first nationally syndicated black columnist for the Chicago Tribune, and still later wrote for the Chicago Sun-Times. Mr. Jarrett once sat on a union publicity committee (for the communist-controlled Packinghouse Workers Union) with Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist poet who occasionally counseled the young Barack Obama. When Vernon Jarrett died in 2004, he was saluted in the pages of People’s Weekly Worker, the house organ of the Communist Party USA.

So, undoubtably, they were just making sure that CGI understood that getting the No Bid Contract meant hiring more corrupt friends of the president. 

All modern presidents have had their advisors, confidantes, favorites, hatchet men, etc. However, all these roles have rarely been contained in a single person. Due to the pressures of their respective jobs, presidents are often forced to part company with once-trusted lieutenants; occasionally the lieutenants bring about their own demise through disloyalty, errors in judgment, etc. The separations may be painful but the president must save his own neck.

Jarrett has absolutely no qualifications to be the principal advisor to the president of the United States. She doesn’t understand how Washington works, how relations with Congress work, how the federal process works. She doesn’t understand how the economy works, how the military works, how national security works. But she understands how Obama works.

But even when she gets there will Obama turn on her as he has so many others (Rev Wright)? Does she have trump cards that will prevent or avenge such a schism? Is his fear of facing the office alone enough to protect her?

This is a morbidly fascinating situation because its somewhat unique. Even Obama’s most rabid supporters concede he is highly, even completely reliant on Jarrett. Obama’s traumatic childhood stemming from his mother’s unedifying, desperate global bed-hopping means he is unable to recognize or demonstrate loyalty; all so-called relationships are utilitarian barter transactions to him – money, influence, votes. Jarrett is an absolutely toxic character but, regrettably, has not yet crossed the threshold of a political liability from Obama’s perspective. An interesting note is that Valerie’s mother had three white grandparents, and her father was black. Like Obama, she lived in the Muslim world for part of her developmental childhood, when her father practiced medicine in Iran.

With or without a split, can she be held to account for her decisions?

In view of the pertinent facts it now seems the real purpose of this Neo-Democratic Socialist party is to elect thieves to office so that they have access to public treasuries in order to loot them. The media is now seemingly paid to cover for them, which makes the media also accomplices to all this thievery, treachery and treasonous activity.
