This time Obama and his associates’ objective is to stop Trump’s domestic and foreign policy agendas on virtually all fronts – immigration reform, border security, the roll back of the controversial Obamacare system and more. According to some accounts, Obama and his associates may be seeking no less than Trump’s impeachment.
The strategies for disruption seem to include everything from nonprofit front-group activism and the filing of legal motions to support for protest movements targeting Trump and top administration officials.
This as Trump works to secure America’s porous borders, fix the faltering economy, replace Obama’s largely failed healthcare law, combat the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism, contend with the threat of Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, and address the issue of illegal immigration that was put on steroids during Obama’s two terms in office.
The latest sign of Obama’s fingerprints on Trump disruption plots comes from reports on Monday that former Obama administration staffers have formed a group to closely monitor the Trump administration.
“Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment,” reported the Daily Mail.
Evidence of Obama’s close associations with efforts to oppose Trump emerged two weeks ago when a group of former top lawyers for the Obama administration formed their own organization aimed at utilizing legal advocacy methods to target Trump’s policies.
That organization is calling itself United to Protect Democracy, drawing on the theme of Obama’s farewell speech last month.
The legal activist group is already partnered with an organization heavily financed by billionaire George Soros and is led by a former Obama lawyer who previously worked at a Soros-financed global activist outfit, this reporter documented.
Then there is also evidence of Obama-connected support for protests targeting Trump.
Last month, it was reported that Organizing for Action, the activist group that emerged from Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest Trump’s agenda. One week earlier, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros.
Organizing for Action (OFA) is a so-called community organizing project that sprung from Obama’s 2012 campaign organization, Organizing for America, becoming a nonprofit described by the Washington Post as “advocat[ing] for the president’s policies.”
Last month, NBC News reported on OFA’s new actions and its partnership with Indivisible:
Sperry was referring to comments Obama reportedly made in a November conference call with so-called grassroots supporters, telling them “Now is the time for some organizing.”
Obama hinted he will return to community organizing, stating: “I promise you that next year Michelle and I are going to be right there with you, and the clouds are going to start parting and the sun is going to come back out, and we’re going to be busy, involved in the amazing stuff that we’ve been doing all these years before.”
Perry further reported on OFA:
The associations between the OFA-affiliated Indivisible and the Soros-financed MoveOn.org and ACLU may be telling since the latter two groups have been central to recent efforts to stop Trump.
Two weeks ago, within hours of reports surfacing that Attorney General Jeff Sessions held two conversations with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. while he was Alabama’s senator and served on the Armed Services Committee, MoveOn.org was already outside the U.S. Department of Justice building calling for Sessions’ resignation.
Sessions maintains that the conversations did not concern the 2016 presidential campaign. He served as an informal adviser to Trump during the presidential race.
MoveOn.org and Indivisible are also planning what the groups claim will be a massive anti-Trump Tax March in Washington and at least 60 other locations on April 15.
Meanwhile, lawyers from the ACLU and other groups financed by Soros were signatories to a lawsuit filed to block Trump’s original refugee order. In response to the lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly issued an emergency order that temporarily blocked U.S. authorities from deporting travelers from the nations listed in Trump’s executive order.
Obama’s newfound activism seems to bring him back to his early days in the 1980s as an Alinsky-inspired community organizer working in the South Side of Chicago.
As a reporter at WND.com, this journalist previously extensively documented Obama’s ties to Alinsky ideology.
