How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency

By Paul Sperry, NY POST

How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidencyWhen former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

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.

Since Donald Trump’s election, this little-known but well-funded protesting arm has beefed up staff and ramped up recruitment of young liberal activists, declaring on its website, “We’re not backing down.” Determined to salvage Obama’s legacy,”it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.

Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.

“It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged,” he said in a conference call from the White House. “But get over it.” He demanded they “move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished.”

“Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope.”

Far from sulking, OFA activists helped organize anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots. After Trump issued a temporary ban on immigration from seven terror-prone Muslim nations, the demonstrators jammed airports, chanting: “No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!”

Run by old Obama aides and campaign workers, federal tax records show “nonpartisan” OFA marshals 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Registered as a 501(c)(4), it doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but they’ve been generous. OFA has raised more than $40 million in contributions and grants since evolving from Obama’s campaign organization Obama for America in 2013.

OFA, in IRS filings, says it trains young activists to develop “organizing skills.” Armed with Obama’s 2012 campaign database, OFA plans to get out the vote for Democratic candidates it’s grooming to win back Congress and erect a wall of resistance to Trump at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

It will be aided in that effort by the Obama Foundation, run by Obama’s former political director, and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, launched last month by Obama pal Eric Holder to end what he and Obama call GOP “gerrymandering” of congressional districts.

Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.

The 55-year-old Obama is not content to go quietly into the night like other ex-presidents

Critical to the fight is rebuilding the ravaged Democrat Party. Obama hopes to install his former civil-rights chief Tom Perez at the helm of the Democratic National Committee.

Perez is running for the vacant DNC chairmanship, vowing “It’s time to organize and fight .?.?. We must stand up to protect President Obama’s accomplishments;” while also promising, “We’re going to build the strongest grass-roots organizing force this country has ever seen.”

The 55-year-old Obama is not content to go quietly into the night like other ex-presidents.

“You’re going to see me early next year,” he said after the election, “and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff.”

Added the ex-president: “Point is, I’m still fired up and ready to go.”

  1. This is at best insurgency, at worst treason.

    Obama was allowed to be above the law when he was President. Trump should initiate a thorough investigation on Obama’s treasonous and lawless acts as President and prosecute him.

    His followers will come out rioting but the moment they do damage, let the law deal with them too. The swamp is not clean yet it is still writhing in filth.

  2. JoeBillScott Said:

    “The way to really get it going fast would be to send marshalls into Obama’s mansion and perp-walk him out in handcuffs.”

    (humor alert)

    Obama did that. He sent in E.G. Marshall as Inspector Harry Snapper Organs to investigate alleged incidents of workplace violence.

    and then part 1 part 2

  3. I love a good American civil war!

    The way to really get it going fast would be to send marshalls into Obama’s mansion and perp-walk him out in handcuffs.

    The shvartzers in the US will go ape!

    The Republicans will have to free the slaves from the Democrat Party a second time.

    Speaking of ghettos, they will be emptied. A lot of workers are going to be needed to build 1500 miles of wall.

  4. The protests, riots, media making anti-Trump propganda with either lies, made up stories or distortions has all the early hallmarks of a
    resistance movement. In the 1960s the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War caused a lot of civil disobedience.

    This now appears to a complete movement towards deligitimitzing of Trump and his Administration. Before he stepped in office Maxim Waters said she wanted to impeach Trump. Some of the left half jokingly maybe call for his asassination.

  5. Economist Said:

    Looks as if Obama is fomenting a civil war


  6. Looks as if Obama is fomenting a civil war. He needs to be widely exposed and to the extent his organizations are accessories to illegal acts such as property damage, be charged under RICO.

  7. reads like a threat to overthrow the gov. in some places I think it’s called treason? imaging u s a having it’s own guy Fawkes night, the kkk would love to bonfire the traitor.
