    After Trump secured the nomination, Obama's people filed a wiretapping request. As he was on the verge of winning, they did it again. After he won, they are doing everything they can to bring him down. It was always going to come down to this. One is the elected President of the United States. The other is the Anti-President who commands a vast network that encompasses the organizers of OFA, the official infrastructure of the DNC and Obama Anonymous, a shadow government of loyalists embedded in key positions across the government.

    Now that he’s been unceremoniously dragged off the high horse of his presidency, revolutionary renegade Barack Hussein Obama has returned to full-scale community organizing with a waiting ‘Civilian National security Force’, he promised back in 2008 that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the U.S. military” at his command. In little more than a month after the much celebrated inauguration of America’s 45th, the troops wait to welcome back the master who assembled them: 250 Organizing for Action (OFA) offices had already set up across the country, staffed by 32,000 organizers, 25,000 of them...

    Recent funding records are not available, but in just its first two years, OFA took in over $40 million, according to IRS filings. Not surprisingly, OFA’s major donors are also members of George Soros’s Democracy Alliance, which is a donors’ consortium of the left-wing super rich devoted to radical political change. Daniel Greenfield, the award-winning Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, believes “OFA will be far more dangerous in the wild than the Clinton Foundation ever was.” Since OFA has all the contact information assets of Obama’s predecessor 2008 and 2012 campaign organization, Organizing for America, which include 30...

    It is official, and it is shocking. We are at war! Obama founded OFA in January of 2013 with Michelle Obama, which was the primary organization for his campaign. He has moved Valerie Jarrett, his Senior Advisor from his White House years, into his new Washington mansion to head the campaign to oust President Trump. He is not trying to hide his intentions, and I call it “sedition”! It is incitement and rebellion against the government, and it is straight out of Saul Alinsky”s RULES FOR RADICALS. The modus operandi of OFA comes straight from Obama’s belief in Marxism and...

    If you think you’re going crazy from nonstop news coverage of unruly behavior and disruptive protests across the country since Donald Trump was elected president, rest assured there are veiled reasons for the current madness. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Goodwin asserts the ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome,’ is no temporarily insane reaction, but rather “a calculated plan to wreck the presidency, whatever the cost to the country.” The beginnings of this “rolling coup” happened in broad daylight in the taking down of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as Director of National Security by residual players within the Obama intelligence community -- including the...

The “Spirit of America Rallies,” which have been taking place around the country since February, will culminate this weekend, with most scheduled for Saturday, March 4, including one in Washington, D.C., at LayFayette Square, beginning at 1 p.m. But they won’t be the only ones on the streets, as self-styled “antifa” have vowed to disrupt some of the protests, sparking fears of conflict.

    We in these pages on several occasions, the last time in the preceding blog, described former president Barak Hussein Obama as a strategic revolutionary. To see him as such is almost obvious if one follows his upbringing, as previously in a series of blogs in detail described in these pages. The formative years of his youth he spent under the influence of radical Socialists (often even Communists). In and after college, his associates were practically exclusively leftist radical revolutionaries, including Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn of Weather Underground fame, once he came to Chicago to work as a community organizer....

    Barack Obama is America’s political houseguest who won’t go away. During his tenure, Democrats lost both houses of Congress, scores of governorships and state legislatures, and finally the White House. Despite that record, the former president has decided that, much like the Foo Fighters, he’ll stick around. If you doubt this, close examination of his new website proves just how politically involved the former president wants to stay. Yes, the former first family already has a website, titled ( The Office of Barack and Michelle Obama. (I hear they got a good deal on used servers from Hillary Clinton.) Take...

As detailed below, there was a well-organized national and local campaign to get activists to Reed’s town halls for the specific purpose of creating a protest environment. Instructions how to protest and what questions to ask were circulated. Though the town halls were in the western part of the district, liberal groups in Ithaca and Tompkins county organized protests and got their members there. Other liberal groups like Planned Parenthood also got their people out.</p>

    The head of the National Rifle Association painted anti-Donald Trump protesters as violent extremists and compared their disruptions to terrorism during a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. "Ladies and gentlemen, another definition of terrorism is violence in the name of politics," said Wayne Lapierre, executive director of the NRA. "And criminal violence has no place in political debate." Police have clashed, at times, with crowds gathered to protest the new president. But the hundreds of demonstrations that have taken place around the globe have been largely peaceful.

    Friend -- Over the past several months, we heard a lot about "mass deportation" and the implementation of a "deportation force" -- but I hoped I'd never live to see the day​. Unfortunately, it's about to become reality. This week, the Department of Homeland Security issued guidance regarding their immigration enforcement plans, "set[ting] the stage for mass deportations," as CNN characterized it. Rather than a common-sense focus on those who have committed serious violent crimes, the new administration is taking steps to vastly increase the population of immigrants who will be targeted, detained, and deported. The new guidance not only...

    OFA is DOA to Democratic Party operatives. If they don't control those unprincipled activists, the DNC will be DOA next! Well, this is welcome news, isn’t it? Organizing for Action has turned into a big fat failure for the Democratic Party. Who would have guessed? Those obnoxious organizers are so out of touch with reality. They don’t seem to recognize that working men and women of all backgrounds are barely making ends meet. Democrats really believed that a bunch of spoiled, screaming razor-blade snowflakes invading town halls and lecturing people about their Western, white privilege was going to be well-received.

    Organizing for Action, the activist group that morphed from Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest President Donald Trump’s agenda. Last week, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros. Politico earlier this month profiled Indivisible in an article titled, “Inside the protest movement that has Republicans reeling.” The news agency not only left out the Soros links, but failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly...

    A new report indicates that Obama’s post-presidency is unfolding into an extremely odd one, as he set up post less than two miles from the White House for his “shadow government.” There’s a reason Obama relocated not too from the White House. It’s a good place to keep an eye on things as he’s scheming to derail Donald Trump. According to the NY Post, Obama has not only set up post central in Washington D.C., but he has 250 offices across the country manned by people ready to fight Trump every chance they get. This little-known “protesting arm” is well-funded...

They point to the grassroots protests, marches and town-hall disruptions of recent weeks as a sign that President Trump has already sparked involvement by their base at historic levels.

Dozens of lawmakers joined in the events...

    For many progressives and organizers across the country, President Obama is an inspiration. But he's not a unicorn. (I believe the fact-checkers out there can confirm that.)

Right now, the next Barack Obamas are already out there in communities all across the country, looking to get their start. OFA's mission is to find those great organizers and provide the training needed to be great. It can't be overstated -- of all the things we do at OFA, our training programs are the biggest legacy we'll...

    The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform voted on Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. The committee’s approval paves the way for a vote in the full House of Representatives. Lerner is accused of leading an effort to target the tax status of conservative organizations, while giving liberal organizations a pass. Lerner previously pled the Fifth Amendment when questioned by the committee on May 22, 2013. The Fifth Amendment protects against self-incrimination. But since Lerner had previously professed her innocence in a statement, a little over one month later the committee voted that...

Samantha Maltzman, a top fundraiser for the Democratic group with strong ties to President Obama, resigned from the organization after NBC News obtained emails between her and Dr. Munr Kazmir, a New Jersey businessman, explicitly listing prices to attend a summit last week with the president. The emails conflicted with a pledge by former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who wrote in an op-ed last year that “we can't and we...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Organizing for Action, a group formed to back President Barack Obama's agenda, has fired one of its fundraisers and acknowledged falling short of its standards as questions were raised Friday about whether the group solicited donations in exchange for access to Obama or White House officials.

    During a speech to Organizing for Action supporters, President Obama paused as he sneezed into the microphone during his speech. "I've been working so hard I might be getting a cold," Obama said. "I actually think I'm OK." "I gotta 'Get Covered,'" he added, referring to his signature health care law, which prompted applause and cheers from his supporters. Obama praised his supporters for promoting Obamacare. "The work you’re doing is God’s work," he said. "It is hard work."

    At a conference of the Annual Strategic Data Project (SDP) last year, Common Core "architect" and current president of the “non-profit” College Board, David Coleman, praised the collection of student data via the Common Core State Standards initiative.  Furthermore, he welcomed to that effort members of Barack Obama’s re-election campaign who, Coleman said, would be reaching out, as they did for the campaign, to the “low-hanging fruit,” or low-income and Latino students.In the video below, recorded last May by the Harvard Center for Education Policy Research CEPR, Coleman gave his audience several important pieces of information. First, Coleman admitted, as former...

    Worried by a wave of popular outrage at Obamacare, the activists of President Barack Obama's community organizing arm, Organizing for Action, are urging members to share positive stories about the president's flagship domestic policy. In an email to volunteers in Los Angeles, organizers note that "we are making a big effort to document the stories of people who have benefited from Obamacare" to counter negative stories.

    What’s more dangerous than a community organizer with a bullhorn? A community organizer with a phone.Hey guy!…and a bat.Or, worst of all, a community organizer with a pen.“We’re not just waiting for legislation, I’ve got a pen and I can use it to sign executive orders”America is no longer led by a mere president; now have our own Community Organizer in Chief.

    Conservatives are in a tizzy over a seemingly innocuous Obamacare ad from Organizing for Action featuring a young man in pajamas. He’s “a metrosexual hipster in a plaid onesie” scowled National Review’s Charles Cooke, a “vaguely androgynous, student-glasses-wearing, Williamsburg hipster.” He’s also “carefully ambi-racial.” Pajama boy can’t even fight, Cooke’s colleague, Jim Geraghty, surmises. “My money is on the guy from Big Bang Theory once they throw down in a slap fight,” writes Geraghty, a grown man calling someone else a child as he imagines a fight between two fictional characters. “An insufferable man-child,” writes Rich Lowry at Politico, who...

    BH: Just looking at some of the earlier issues, it looks like there’s plenty of stuff that could cause uproar among students. I saw a poll in one of the newspapers that asked “Was sex better before or after 9/11?” and concluded that sex was best in between the towers collapsing. Do you guys ever get complaints? EK: Oh, absolutely. We have gotten complaints about the paper being too harsh on Jewish students. It’s a comedy newspaper. Is there any doubt 95 percent of the writers are Jewish? BH: So it’s mainly the Jewish thing.

    Yep, says Megan McArdle. A little, says me. "Pajama Boy is not a good ad. Whatever you think about progressives, they are in most ways perfectly normal people. Normal people do not, at the age of 26 or so, want to spend their holiday in footy pajamas, listening to their parents harangue them about fiscal responsibility. Good ads usually do one of three things: they make you want to be more like the person in the ad; they make you want to date the person in the ad; or they engage you and the maker of the ad as knowing...
