Scott Powell: Obama, Organizing For Action,
And The Death Throes Of The Democratic Party

Truth Revolt -- If you think you’re going crazy from non-stop news coverage of unruly, hateful and disruptive behavior and 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.”

Just one week before Trump was inaugurated, then President Obama issued an extraordinary executive order, a reckless departure to longstanding policy, to allow the NSA to share with the FBI, CIA and 14 other intelligence agencies which continue to employ numerous Obama holdovers, the raw data and communications intercepts of private American citizens—collected without warrants, court orders or congressional authorizations. A plausible reason for Obama to issue this executive order at the end of his office was to set the stage for sabotaging the new government. Obama’s executive order effectively created and formalized a “conveyer belt” leak mechanism, setting the stage for a “rolling coup” against the Trump administration. The first head to roll was Lieutenant General Michael Flynn who was taken down within two weeks of taking office as Director of National Security. […]

The modus operandi of OFA comes right out of Obama’s support and sympathy for Marxism and his background as a left-wing community organizer. It’s a combination of agitation and propaganda—much like old-style Soviet agitprop, and Chicago-based Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.[…]

Many have wondered why Obama didn’t follow the tradition of almost every other ex-president and depart Washington after his term was up. Instead he moved into large home in Washington D.C.’s Embassy Row, allegedly to provide continuity for his daughter’s education and to stay close to the shapers of his presidential legacy. Those reasons are likely secondary to his vision and commitment to the “transformation” of America. Ramping up a hydra-headed organizational effort through OFA out of his 8,200 square foot walled mansion in Washington to protect the Left’s gains and to sabotage the electoral victory of Donald Trump is simply a natural progression for Obama.

Obama is no fool and he understands—having encouraged Black Lives Matter and the war on police and law enforcement, having facilitated ballooning welfare rolls and doubling student debt to $1.35 trillion, having presided over a flood of immigrants illegally crossing the southern border, and having pushed unprecedented deficit spending that added nearly a trillion dollars annually to the federal debt and doubling that debt in eight years to $20 trillion—that the U.S. is nearer collapse than at any previous time. And every Marxist knows that socialist transformation first requires collapse of the old order.

Obama has not only been trained in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, but he’s familiar with the “crisis strategy theory” of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, two neo-Marxists who taught at Columbia University, where Obama later studied. For Cloward and Piven, the left’s easiest route to socialist transformation is to overload the welfare state, which will trigger an insolvency crisis and financial collapse. U.S. Congressmen Steven King (R-Iowa) and Steve Stockman (R-Texas) both concur having stated that Obama was “playing out of the Cloward-Piven theory” by “attempting to flood the border with illegals.”[…]

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 million email addresses, 3 million donors and 2 million active participants there should be no underestimating OFA’s potential influence, especially with an uncritical media covering it up.

Draining the swamp in Washington, D.C. will probably be Trump’s greatest challenge. But contrary to the early vocal critics among the establishment elites, aka the “Never Trumpers,” it now looks like Donald Trump is providing some long overdue backbone to the Republican Party. In contrast, the Democratic Party appears to be in the midst of death throes.

In Dante’s Inferno, the fifth of nine circles of Hell was characterized by an endless battle of angry, wailing souls taking place in a murky swamp. It is the Democratic Party—which is divided, ideologically rigid and corrupt, lacking in common sense, and filled with rage and moral superiority toward all that voted against their corrupt candidate—that is looking more like the endangered species, thanks in large part to Barack Obama, his Chicago ways, and his Organizing for Action.

Blog Author's Comments: Anyone who has followed Obama during his presidency knows that he hates America as it was prior to his being in office, and has embraced every group that shares his feelings. He has been spoiled by his unearned wealth and the good life he never earned but was given because he had dark skin. I agree with the author of the piece in that I also think he has enough foolish energy and ambition to do something like this. He was a community organizer, he has no private sector skills whatsoever but he does know how to round up those who think as he does. America is still a nation of laws. And no one is above the law, but Obama has managed for years to avoid the laws and do almost everything he has wanted to do.

The Democratic Party has in effect, been given to Obama. It no longer serves the purpose of a legitimate political party. After getting their heads handed to them in 2016 the democrats finally understand that they can't conquer America by legitimate means. So they'll use illegitimate means. If the Democrats lose every election for the next 8 years it won't matter because they're outside the system. They are changing the party to work as an insurgency. The GOP will therefore have to fight a two pronged battle, one to keep them out of electoral politics and one to fight the revolutionaries in the streets, in the media, and in the social welfare systems. The Obama cabal are traitors and while they do seek great wealth, they are driven more by ideology.

No president in US history has tried to undermine his successor like Obama is doing, and this is why President Trump needs the so-called leaders of the GOP to fight with him. They need to stop worrying about being reelected and do what is necessary for the party. They have to join ranks and pass the legislation that they can pass for the betterment of America. They have to do this to maintain and grow their power base, increase their seats in the Senate, put a number of hard-core conservatives on the Supreme Court and work as hard as Trump does and will continue to do. The chance to maintain control of the government for years is within our and their grasp and they cannot let it slip away.
