Add Homeland Security’s Jeh Johnson to List of Obama Red Diaper Babies
INTRODUCTORY NOTE by John I. Johnson: This piece reveals the fascinating Communist family background of some leading Democratic officials, especially Black head of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson (pictured). The Communist Lee Lorch with whom his grandfather associated was Jewish, and I assume Lomanitz was as well.
Also mentioned are the mulatto Senior Advisor to the President, Valerie Jarrett (who is one-eighth Jewish) and the Jewish Chief Strategist for Obama’s presidential campaigns, and former Senior Advisor to the President, David M. Axelrod.
This deep immersion in Communism is common to many contemporary European, EU, UN, and NGO leaders and officials throughout the former First World. (Imagine instead if they were hardline racial Rightists from National Socialist families: because that is exactly what you have in reverse.)

Subversion: While speaking to Muslims last week, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson revealed why he’s so protective of them. He compared growing suspicions cast on them to the plight of his communist kin.
Johnson dropped the bombshell that his grandfather had been investigated for communism and un-American activities. We can’t say we’re surprised. Add him to the parade of Red diaper babies in the Cabinet, including top White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, former political advisor David Axelrod and President Obama himself.
No wonder this administration isn’t interested in monitoring radical Muslims for terrorist connections.
“In 1949, during the McCarthy era, my own grandfather was called upon to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee, to deny he was a member of the Communist Party and defend the patriotism of African-Americans,” Johnson said in a speech to the ADAMS Center in Sterling, Va., a mosque founded by alleged radical Muslim Brotherhood leaders.
“Today his grandson is responsible for the homeland security of this entire nation,” he boasted.
He likened the current climate of “fear, suspicions and prejudice” against Muslim immigrants to the Red scare and McCarthyism his grandfather, Charles S. Johnson, lived under in the 1940s and 1950s.
In 1949, Johnson, a sociologist and president of predominantly black Fisk University, was dragged before the House Un-American Activities Committee and “asked to deny if he is or ever has been a member of the Communist Party.”
The panel had good cause to investigate. Communists hadn’t just infiltrated Fisk as professors, but Johnson had readily hired them, including Giovanni “Ross” Lomanitz, a known communist operative.
Even after Lomanitz’s communist loyalties were exposed, Johnson spoke out on his behalf. Johnson then hired and defended yet another communist, math professor Lee Lorch. Johnson initially refused to fire him, but relented under withering criticism.
There was also the issue of Johnson’s own membership in communist fronts such as the National Sharecroppers Fund.
Johnson denied the charges and called the hearings a “witch hunt.” But the charges stuck.
After he died of a massive heart attack, grandson Jeh Charles Johnson took his name.
Of course, none of this came out in the younger Johnson’s confirmation hearings.
We only this summer learned that old FBI papers reveal hard-core communism in Jarrett’s family.
Her Chicago kin, who were known as “concealed communists,” included her late father, James E. Bowman. He was involved with communist front groups and was in contact with a paid Soviet agent in the 1950s who was wanted for espionage.
Jarrett’s maternal grandfather, Robert Rochon Taylor, was investigated by the FBI for his membership in communist groups and his business relationship with the same Soviet agent tied to her father.
Her late father-in-law, Vernon D. Jarrett, was assigned by the Communist Party USA to a special cultural arts cell that spread the party line, ran publicity for communist candidates and raised money for them.
Jarrett was such a threat as a communist propagandist that he was flagged by the FBI as an internal security risk to be swiftly arrested in the event of a hot war with the Soviet Union. The FBI also investigated his wife, Fernetta “Fern” Jarrett, for communist activities.
Then there’s longtime Obama political advisor Axelrod, another Red diaper baby whose mother worked for a Communist newspaper.
Axelrod got his start in Chicago politics working under Soviet agents Harry and David Canter. He’s now working as a CNN political analyst, spinning the presidential race in Hillary Clinton’s favor.
Johnson’s family history is most troubling. As Muslim terrorism hits closer and closer to home, our Homeland Security chief views the war on Islamic terrorism as another Red scare, where Muslim terrorist suspects are Red-baited like his grandfather.
