Eli Lake called it a political assassination. The New York Times steadfastly maintains there is “no evidence” that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians to influence the election. But that didn’t stop the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse from taking down General Micheal Flynn.
Who are the Four Horseman of the Liberal Apocalypse? The Media, the Establishment RINOs, Elected Democrats, and Obama’s shadowy unelected bureaucrat operatives embedded within the DeepState. These Four Horsemen continue to work in coordination to weaken and delegitimize President Trump’s election triumph over of Hillary Clinton. Former President Barrack Obama appears to be leading the Horsemen’s charge.
Author Ed Klein told Pete Hegseth on Fox and Friends Weekend in December that former President “Barack Obama is setting up a shadow government in Washington DC to undermine President Trump after Inauguration Day.”
Paul Sperry at The New York Post wrote:
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.
He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.”
And they are well-funded:
Run by old Obama aides and campaign workers, federal tax records show “nonpartisan” OFA marshals 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Registered as a 501(c)(4), it doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but they’ve been generous. OFA has raised more than $40 million in contributions and grants since evolving from Obama’s campaign organization Obama for America in 2013.
OFA, in IRS filings, says it trains young activists to develop “organizing skills.” Armed with Obama’s 2012 campaign database, OFA plans to get out the vote for Democratic candidates it’s grooming to win back Congress and erect a wall of resistance to Trump at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.
It will be aided in that effort by the Obama Foundation, run by Obama’s former political director, and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, launched last month by Obama pal Eric Holder to end what he and Obama call GOP “gerrymandering” of congressional districts.
Through Obama’s community organizing efforts, the Left has Democrat embeds operatives embedded in the bureaucracy working to deconstruct our representative democracy, our Constitution, from within.
The reason General Flynn was targeted and politically eliminated by these Obama operatives of the Deep State is thoroughly explained by Michael Walsh writing at PJ Media: They are DeepState Agents effecting an inside coup. ”They all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”
Mike Flynn, a good man who saw the enemy clearly, and had the courage to name it, saw Russia not as an enemy but a geopolitical adversary with whom we could make common cause against Islam — and who also vowed to shake up a complacent and malfeasant IC — was its first scalp, and an object lesson to new CIA Director Mike Pompeo should he have any reformist notions. As for the media, having previously failed to take down Trump aides Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, Flynn was the next best thing; their joy today is unbounded.
Fox News’ Lou Dobbs suggested that what former President Barrack Obama is doing is close to sedition:
Recall that one of Obama’s last acts before leaving office was to commute the sentence of Chelsea (nee Bradley) Manning, the U.S. soldier who was court-martialed in July 2013 for violating the Espionage Act after disclosing to WikiLeaks nearly three-quarters of a million classified or sensitive military and diplomatic documents.
I believe Obama’s commutation of Manning’s sentence functioned as an activation signal to Deep State sleeper cells to leak like a rusty garbage scow on the Hudson for the greater good of delegitimizing President Trump.
Regarding General Flynn, President Trump and Vice-President Pence should have acted like former President Obama in this: They should have defended their nominee, thumbing their noses at all comers. Because Trump caved with Flynn, Andy Puzder, reading the writing on the wall, bowed out of consideration for Labor Secretary. The embeds got a two-fer. Such wavering support will only further embolden the Democrats and their shadowy operatives to repeat such vicious attacks against any Trump nominee or appointment.
President Trump’s Thursday press conference was an epic counter to his administration’s misstep concerning Flynn. His calm exposure of the main stream media snarky tactics and liberal bias was a truly a triumph. He adroitly used the press for its stated purpose: to convey a message directly to the American people. And while the media no doubt hated Trump for it, I think the American people will cheer his candor and bravery in admonishing the press and will forgive him for his unforced error with regard to General Flynn.
Republicans too can learn a thing or two from their adversaries the Democrats — stay united behind the leader of their party come hell or high water. President Trump is leading the new conservative cold war to defeat the forces of liberalism and their allies in the media. Republicans need to follow or get out of the way. Because this is a political fight to the death for the soul of America and no quarter will be asked or given.
