Obama's Shadow Presidency
Well-funded "Organizing for Action" promises to crack skulls
February 15, 2017
By: Matthew Vadum
Former President Obama is waging war
against the Trump administration through his generously funded agitation outfit, Organizing for Action,
to defend his monumentally destructive record of failure and violent polarization.
It is a chilling reminder that the increasingly aggressive, in-your-face Left in this country is on the march.
Acclaimed author Paul Sperry writes in the New York Post:
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.
What is Organizing for Action? It is a version of Mussolini's black shirts and Hitler's brown shirts, or of the government-supported goon squads that Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Cuba's Castro brothers used to harass and intimidate their domestic opponents.
OFA isn't, strictly speaking, a new group. After the 2008 election, the group, then known as Organizing for America, was a phony grassroots campaign run by the Democratic National Committee that sought to replicate the community organizing techniques Obama learned from the teachings of his fellow Chicagoan, Saul Alinsky. OFA was created in large part because the White House could not legally use the 13 million e-mail addresses that the Obama campaign compiled in 2008.
Former U.S. Rep. Bob Edgar (D-Penn.), sounded the alarm about OFA in 2013, suggesting the group was dangerous to democracy. "If President Obama is serious about his often-expressed desire to rein in big money in politics, he should shut down Organizing for Action and disavow any plan to schedule regular meetings with its major donors," he said as president of the left-wing group Common Cause. "Access to the President should never be for sale."
"With its reported promise of quarterly presidential meetings for donors and 'bundlers' who raise $500,000, Organizing For Action apparently intends to extend and deepen the pay-to-play Washington culture that Barack Obama came to prominence pledging to end," Edgar said. "The White House's suggestion this week that this group will somehow be independent is laughable."
But Edgar's admonitions were ignored and since then Organizing for Action has thrived and grown rich, just like the Obamas.
As FrontPage previously reported, Obama has rented a $5.3 million, 8,200-square-foot, walled mansion in Washington's Embassy Row that he is using to command his community organizing cadres. Michelle Obama will join the former president there as will the Obama Foundation. To stay on track, Obama wants his former labor secretary, Tom Perez, to win the chairmanship of the DNC in a party election later this month. "It's time to organize and fight, said Perez who appears to be gaining on frontrunner and jihadist Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.). "We must stand up to protect President Obama's accomplishments," adding, "We're going to build the strongest grassroots organizing force this country has ever seen."
No ex-president has ever done this before, sticking around the nation's capital to vex and undermine his successor. Of course, Obama is unlike any president the United States has ever had. Even failed, self-righteous presidents like Jimmy Carter, who has occasionally taken shots at his successors, didn't stay behind in Washington to obstruct and disrupt the new administration.
Organizing for Action, a 501©(4) nonprofit that doesn't have to disclose its donors, is at the head of Obama's network of left-wing nonprofit groups. OfA, Sperry warns, has "a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country "to spark riots, get arrested to make a political statement, organize lynch mobs and voter fraud on a massive scale, intimidate and shake down corporations, blackmail lenders, race-bait public officials and businesses into submission, smear and terrorize your opponents, shield illegal aliens from law enforcement, lead squatters to invade foreclosed homes, encourage welfare fraud, and use tax dollars to promote cockamamie social-engineering schemes.
Obama is "intimately involved" in OFA's operations and issues tweets from the group's account, Sperry writes. "In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump's upset victory."
In recent weeks its activists organized marches across the country. Some became riots. After President Trump issued Executive Order 13769 temporarily banning visitors from seven terrorism-plagued Muslim countries, OfA organized "spontaneous" demonstrations at airports.
Obama praised the airport rabble-rousers.
OFA will be soon aided by BHO pal Eric Holder."
And more unruly protests, rioting, and violent attacks on Trump supporters will follow.
