It wasn’t that long ago President Obama’s former communications director told us that when Obama left office, he was going to ‘follow the Bush model’. Oh REALLY?
Well, funny thing is, I don’t remember former President Bush leaving office and then setting up residence in D.C.. I also don’t recall President Bush opening an office with a staff to ‘keep tabs on’ another president, or organizing a nationwide campaign of “grassroots” activists through TWO different organizations – Organizing For Action and Indivisibles, only to encourage airport protests and other anti-president rallies. In addition, I don’t ever recall President Bush EVER trying to delegitimize another president. How about you?
H/T Conservative Tribune:
A Huffington Post article about Barack Obama’s clandestine moves against President Donald Trump held one key detail that shows just how obsessed the former president is with the man who succeeded him in office.
Not only is Obama in regular conference calls with Democrat politicians and groups to plot strategies to oppose the new administration, but he has established a team in Washington to tap the rumor grapevine for information on Trump, The Huffington Post reported.
The former president has “dispatched his team — more than a dozen strong, working out of an office in the West End neighborhood of Washington — to ‘keep tabs on’ the unreported stories (involving Trump),” article author Sam Stein wrote.
“There is a regular conference call for ‘the Obama network,’ a meeting the ex-president attended with former aides a few weeks back, and ad hoc calls to Senate and House Democrats, state-based groups and grassroots organizations.”
I like the level of euphemism there. Obama has “his team” keeping “tabs on the unreported stories.” In other words, they’re digging up dirt on the president. I wonder if he tried to get G. Gordon Liddy out of retirement.
You may also be surprised at the article’s title, “Obama Has A Bite-Your-Tongue Policy On Trump. It’s Proving Harder To Keep.” I had to bite my tongue myself in order to keep from laughing when I read that, since I’m curious when exactly the former president has evinced this policy.
In addition to throwing thinly veiled (and not-so-veiled) barbs at Trump for the month-and-a-half he’s been the president, Obama has stayed active with Organizing For Action, a political action group that’s been particularly vigorous in opposing Trump.
Organizing For Action, which has a prominent link at the bottom of Obama’s post-presidential website, has been involved in organizing some of the airport protests against Trump’s temporary immigration order, according to the New York Post.
It’s partner group, Indivisible, also distributed a pamphlet for town hall protesters which advised them to “(s)it by yourself or in groups of two, and spread out throughout the room. This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus,” “(l)ook friendly or neutral so that staffers will call on you,” and “(d)on’t give up the mic until you’re satisfied with the answer.”
I also like the “It’s Proving Harder To Keep” part. That almost sounds like the high school bully who insisted that your face just kept on getting in the way of his hand. I mean, how could this possibly be his problem?
Then’s there’s the matter of the CIA and the “state within a state.”
You know, it seems ironic that DURING Obama’s presidency he spent so much time golfing and avoiding meetings and his daily security briefings, and NOW that he’s OUT of office, it seems he has been pretty busy organizing CHAOS. Sounds more like the guidance from a radical leftist like George Soros, if you ask me.
Obama has accomplished more chaos OUT of office and AGAINST President Trump in the last two months, than he EVER accomplished as a president, 8 years IN office. What does THAT tell you?
Even White House spokesperson Michael Short, accused Obama of displaying a lack of courtesy, telling the Huffington Post, “It is disappointing that [Obama] isn’t affording President Trump the same courtesy that his predecessor showed toward him.”
Do you think that would be asking too much? ….especially of a former president?
We all know the real problem here don’t we? Obama doesn’t want to see President Trump destroy anything he feels is part of his legacy, including Obama’s own ‘you can keep your doctor’ Obamacare. What a lie that was built on.
You would think with President Trump in office, and the House and Congress controlled by Republicans, we could clean up most of Obama’s messes pretty easily. However, we all know that Obama knows how to organize CHAOS pretty good; that’s one thing he is good at.
One thing’s for sure, since the release of WikiLeaks’ ‘Vault 7’, Obama can’t keep blaming the Russians….we’ve caught on to his ways pretty good now. We know he didn’t need any wiretaps to tap into Trump’s conversations either; the CIA could just override the software in almost any phone, TV and computer or car for that matter, and listen in.
We’ve seen President Trump try to implement laws regarding immigration. We’ve seen Obama’s OFA, Indivisible groups and minions counteract that with protests and lawsuits.
We’ve also seen a National Security Advisor for Trump, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn resign because of information that was obtained through FISA warrants PRIOR to the election of Trump as president.
We’ve seen false accusations, one after another, especially trying to tie Russia as intervening in the presidential election, even though there is STILL NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE to be found.
We’ve also seen AG Jeff Sessions recuse himself of an investigation, that he shouldn’t have had to, in the first place, because HE DIDN”T DO ANYTHING WRONG!
Whether Democrats like it or not Obama’s face IS the face of the anti-Trump movement. It’s now about how low he can go…
I, for one, wouldn’t put ANYTHING past Barack Hussein Obama, especially since Obama’s legacy began in a living room in Chicago with the WeatherUnderground likes of Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. Who by the way, BOTH took credit, and have never denied, responsibility for a series of terrorist bombings which included the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and the State Department.
Who cares about a shadow government when you have THAT kind of a shadow hanging over you, your entire life?
Do you really need any more information than THAT?
