Former President Barack Obama has unprecedented post-presidential plans to work behind the scenes to set up a ‘shadow government’ in an effort to protect his threatened legacy and sabotage the Trump administration.
Operating from his residence less than two miles from the White House, Obama plans to utilize an army of agitators—numbering more than 30,000—to fight Trump’s “America First” agenda on every front.
Obama is operating via a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action (OFA), which is headed for a battle with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.
The well-funded protesting group has hired plenty of staff and accelerated recruitment of young liberal activists with the slogan “We’re not backing down.” The group “is drawing battle lines on immigration, ObamaCare, race relations and climate change.”
Organizing for Action is operated by former Obama aides and campaign workers. Federal tax records indicate that the “nonpartisan” group boasts 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Since OFA is registered as a 501(c)(4) organization, it is not required to disclose its donors. Between contributions and grants, in excess of $40 million has been raised since the OFA evolved from Obama’s campaign organization, Obama for America, in 2013.
Obama is hands-on in OFA operations and even posts Twitter messages from the group’s account. Following Trump’s victory in the presidential election, Obama issued marching orders to OFA activists.
“It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged,” he counseled during a conference call from the White House. “But get over it.” He demanded that his supporters “move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished. Now is the time for some organizing,” he said. “So don’t mope.”
Obama has clearly demonstrated that he is not content to go away quietly like other ex-presidents. “You’re going to see me early next year,” he said after the election. “And we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all kinds of great stuff.”
“Point is,” Obama added, “I’m still fired up and ready to go.”
