So, I have been hearing many people talking about Obama and his “shadow government.” The very wording of this sounds sinister and paranoid at the same time. I have been mostly ignoring this until yesterday. I was riding down the road and decided to listen to the Sean Hannity Radio program, and this was the very thing that he was talking about.
He detailed many of the things that point to Obama’s working to undermine the Trump administration. And Hannity stated that there was proof in the “scandal” and subsequent resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Then to bring all this home, Hannity spoke with columnist Paul Sperry of the NY Post.
Listening to their conversation, I soon recognized that this was not the fantasies of a conspiracy nut, but actually reasonable. So, I searched to see what everyone else was saying. Everyone was pointing to what Sperry was saying, so I went to his column, and this is what I found.
The NY Post reports
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.
This is not just that Obama is not acting presidential; we should be used to that, he never really did. It is that he is not stepping down and stepping away. He is actively opposing the new administration.
Over the next couple days, we will look at what Obama is doing. Here we will seek to find his real end game.
This is not just interesting; it is scary.
