Just this afternoon, the New York Post confirmed what appears to be an attempt by the former president to derail Trump.
With 30,000 protesters just 2 miles from the Oval Office, Obama will now lead the charge against Trump in an effort to disrupt the current president’s goals and ambitions—with the ultimate aim of impeachment.
How is Obama able to accomplish this?
A network of non-profit organizations operating under the parent agency “Organizing for Action.”
In a normal situation, and one that mirrors anything in past American political history, Obama would retire from politics, upholding the sacred tradition designed to protect the presidency from partisanship that could harm the democratic framework of our government system.
But, as the election cycle showed us all, today’s America is anything from routine.
Since November 8th, the network of dissenters has grown dramatically, with the official position of their policy stating, “we’re not backing down.”
Obama is heavily involved in the day-to-day operations of the non-profit groups. In fact, he even posts from their official twitter account, giving orders to ‘activist soldiers’ on the ground.
In a dramatic shift from his original promise of a “smooth” transition, Obama has now made his mission clear, stating “now is the time for some organizing.”
Eric holder will accompany Obama in leading the resistance, serving function as his right-hand man.
Obama will oversee the entire operation from a mansion located just two miles from the White House lawn. Ironically, Obama is currently building a tall brick wall around the complex, which will include a tax-payer funded office, filled with Obama’s own Chief of Staff and Press Secretary.
The former president, now in his 50s, doesn’t appear to be going anywhere any time soon:
“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.”
“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.”
