Barack Obama is staying put in D.C. allegedly to allow his youngest daughter, Sasha to finish school there. The truth is, though, that the recently-former POTUS wants to be front and center in the ongoing plot to make certain the current POTUS does very little to damage the Obama legacy – a legacy an alarming number among the GOP elite appear more than happy to accommodate. STOP TRUMP is the D.C. elites’ rallying cry, and no member of that globalist club is shouting it louder than one Barack Hussein Obama.
The first open signal of Mr. Obama’s role as the acting general of the Stop Trump forces was the stunningly public green-light he gave violent anti-Trump protesters. Obama said during an interview he was “heartened” by those protests, even as both people and property were being harmed.
The New York Post recently indicated the former president has an “army” of some 32,000 paid agitators at his disposal, spread throughout the nation’s urban centers, able to stop traffic, gain adoring media coverage, which in turn allows feckless Establishment Republicans to whisper among themselves how the Trump agenda is seemingly unpopular with the American people – meaning those same Republicans are in fact doing the bidding of Barack Obama.
From the NYP article on this very subject:
“In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.”
Mr. Obama is said to have repeated the mantra that if the Democrats are to more fully capitalize on the Trump years, similar to what happened during the G.W. Bush era, he is to to be the one to provide that success. The donor class, both foreign and domestic have apparently been notified of this declaration. The hundreds of millions in advertising revenue that donor class represents in turn exerts an enormous amount of pressure upon the handful of media companies that control the vast majority of information spread via news, social media, etc.
The entirety of that vast and well-funded machine is set to the task of destroying the Trump presidency with Barack as the face of and voice of that effort – what the Post and others have taken to calling a “Shadow Presidency” located behind the just-constructed walls that now surround Mr. Obama’s D.C. mansion, located just two miles from the White House.
As of this writing, it is estimated Mr. Obama’s community organizing machine (OFA) has some $40 million at its disposal, with more money set to pour in soon. Here are the former president’s own words hinting at what he intends to be doing in 2017:
“You’re going to see me early next year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff. Point is, I’m still fired up and ready to go.”
