Will Biden Back to Trump Represent a Smooth Transition of Power? Not While Obama is Around

While mainstream reporters kept questioning whether or not President Trump would leave office willingly, he did so on schedule and as required. Will Biden do the same if Trump is re-elected? Don’t count on it while Barack Obama is around.

While we’re at it, did the media question Obama’s behavior upon leaving office? In particular, did Obama offer a smooth transition for Trump to assume the presidency? A wave of evidence shows that he did not. Obama continually thwarted his successor, unlike every previous president in U.S. history. 

Constant Meddling

Obama’s post-presidency was unique among presidents. He never moved from Washington D.C. Upon leaving office, Obama set up headquarters a short drive from the White House. His compound included his family residence, an apartment for Valerie Jarrett, his former senior advisor, and offices for Jarrett and various staff people.

Organizing for Action, Obama’s umbrella organization was focused on steering public discourse and national events through the mobilization of thousands of volunteers, all to undermine Trump’s presidency.

At the time, veteran political writer Scott Powell notes, “Unbeknownst to most Americans, Barack Obama is the first ex-president in 228 years of U.S. history to structure and lead a political organization, a shadow government, for the explicit purpose of sabotaging his successor – duly elected President Donald Trump.”

Out of the Shadows.

Obama currently is pulling the strings that control his puppet, the demented Joe Biden. Years back, when Obama ran for state senator in 1995, his campaign kickoff was held at the home of William Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn. These two are self-avowed and unrepentant domestic terrorists. Mayhem is their track record. Freed on a technicality, Ayers wishes he had done more harm to America.

Obama trailed considerably when he ran for the U.S. Senate in 2004, months before the election. Aided by his fixer, David Axelrod, Obama was able to unseal court documents about his opponent’s nasty divorce years earlier. Once this highly private information went public via the Chicago Tribune, Obama’s opponent was doomed.

Always of questionable origin, Obama was all about public image. At the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s south side, he spent 20 years in the congregation of separatist-racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Then, as revelations about Wright were illuminated, Obama roundly disavowed him.

Obama’s subterfuge began before Trump’s inauguration. Obama unmasked names of Trump’s staff and associates, diffused top intelligence among numerous federal agencies, and coordinated timed intelligence leaks to the press, all designed to thwart the legitimacy and effectiveness of Trump’s presidency.

A Break with Tradition

Because he was desperate to cover his numerous impeachable acts, Obama acted quickly once his designated replacement, Hillary Clinton, lost the election. His first target was three-star general Mike Flynn, Trump’s incoming National Security Advisor. Flynn possessed the political knowledge to unravel Obama’s massive schemes quickly. 

Previous presidents felt that the safe and effective transfer of power was vital to the new president to govern unfettered. After their respective terms in office, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe each returned to their homes along the eastern seaboard, some of which were financially underwater.

Breaking with tradition, John Quincy Adams eventually returned to Washington as a congressional representative, but not to thwart his successor, Andrew Jackson. Jackson and his successor, Martin Van Buren, also departed the Capitol after their respective terms in office.

Only Woodrow Wilson, of all previous presidents, remained in town, but as an invalid. He had zero capacity to govern or conspire either at the end of his presidency or for his remaining 18 months of life. Six decades later, President Carter, who launched the Carter Center, and President Clinton, who initiated the Clinton Global Initiative and the financially suspect Clinton Foundation, did not seek to undermine their successors.

Obstruction 101

Ever the “community organizer,” Obama’s home and adjoining offices were regarded as the “nerve center” of Trump administration resistance. From his command post, Obama and his staff organized groups and rallies, wrote articles and speeches, developed media programming, and continually disseminated information created to thwart the Trump presidency.

Obama’s overall activities, to this day, make him the most despicable president and former president that we’ve ever encountered. Will Obama ever be exposed even to the Left for his acts against our republic? The future is yet to unfold.
