(NationalSentinel) Politics: For months we’ve been saying that former President Obama was not only going to remain unusually active, politically, for an ex-commander-in-chief, but that his efforts were going to be principally aimed at undermining his successor, President Donald J. Trump.
Now, Obama’s first attorney general, Eric Holder – currently in the employ of the state of California to fight Trump’s agenda, in violation of the state’s constitution – says his former boss is ready for prime time once again.
Barack Obama is getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics, his friend and former Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.
Holder said he’s been talking to the former president about ways — including fundraising and interacting with state legislators — that could help the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which Obama asked Holder to chair last year.
“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said, speaking to reporters at a briefing for the new group. “And he’s ready to roll.”
Throughout, Holder said, Obama “will be a more visible part of the effort.”
Holder went on to predict that under Trump, Democrats will beginning winning back many of the hundreds and hundreds of state legislative and gubernatorial seats they lost under eight years of his boss’ ‘leadership,’ thereby reversing the trend of nearly every state moving to the right during that timeframe.
But the real reason Obama is “back” has little to do with helping win state offices and lead lawsuits against nonexistent Republican “gerrymandering” of voting districts. Obama is coming back to lead Democrats back to power nationally. And he made sure he would be well-positioned to do that before leaving office.
Quoting investigative journalist Paul Sperry:
When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.
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.
Obama is a Left-wing Marxist activist at heart who spent a little time as a Democratic senator and president. His goal then, as now, was to “fundamentally transform” our country into something 180 degrees from its founding, period. So he will work through Marxist groups to sow racial unrest, distrust, and political division among the American people – pretty much what he did as president.
While that should concern all of us, given the political shift of the country since he became commander-in-chief, it’s likely that Americans will shift even further right the more they see of him.
Only arrogance prevents Holder from seeing that
