(2017) How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trumpís presidency
NY Post ^ | Feb 11, 2017 | by Paul Sperry

Posted on 03/17/2018 1:05:55 PM PDT by Brocko

When 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.

From the article:
“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 told his OFA troops 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.”

Guess those plans fell through ...

Meh ... There's scheming and there's scheming.

Obama, like Hillary Clinton, wants to keep his hand in the game, but does anybody seriously expect that the golfer will be leading the troops himself?

“...protect his threatened legacy...”

Trump has been tearing down O’bastard’s precious “legacy” and shoving it up Barry’s Obunghole since day one.

You would think they could get a FISA warrant on obama. Their seems to be more justification for that than the one they got on Trump.

Similar to tactic used by Hitler and Himmler in the twenties.

He always was. Was obvious to me.

I’m sure this little pussy will be hiding in some bunker when it sets off. But we’ll find him.

Eh. We spent 8 years trying to sabotage his and I’m making no apologies for it either. Politics is a full contact sport.

Isn’t Obama’s mantra “Lead From Behind” .....?

Americans demand a “Leave Office, Go Home and Shut up” law. We are totally sick of eternal presidencies——Clinton and Obama seem to think they were elected for life. Worse, these greedsters are exploiting the office of the presidency to get-rich-quick.

Obama’s foundation and his “Chicago resting place”-—his library—are awash in “donations.”

Americans demand to know if the billions this sucker handed out to Muslims and radical lefties are now his big buck contributors.Meaning your taxes are still at work.....making the Obamas rich.

ACTION NOW-—demand laws outlawing these exploitative ex-presidential activities.

===============================

Marauding ex-president's like Clinton and Obama MUST be reigned in from their crass exploitation of the presidency to make themselves get-rich-quick.

(HAT TIP TILTED IRISH KILT) what we need is a "Presidential Entrepreneur, Enterprise Law" that states once the ex-prez pockets more than the retirement salary, pensions, Secret Service and other perks (amt to be determined) they are now considered to be running a money-making corporation or business for their own profit.

That post-presidency businesses could include (A) speaking engagements, (B) consultancies, (C) organizing personal or political business strategies, (D) investment opportunities, (E) money-gathering foundations, (F) profit-making presidential centers/libraries, (G) selling access to govt entities and individuals, and/or, (H) guest appearances for money.

Taxpayers should not be subsidizing any such personal business or personal security, or subsidizing the success of the ex-president's business ventures.

The law should regularly evaluate the income---amid risks and returns---then forthrightly terminate tax-funding.

Once an ex-president reaches the law's dollar limit, they can continue to receive the Presidential pension, but Secret Service security is dropped, as is their direct access to classified intel, confidential memos and Congressional committee reports.

===================================

ACTION NOW
