Obama: The Man behind the Curtain

Obama: The Man behind the Curtain

16:47 2018

If you’re a movie buff, most likely you’ll recall that pivotal moment within the 1939 movie classic “The Wizard of Oz,” when Dorothy’s little dog Toto pulls back the huge curtain to reveal Professor Marvel (played by character actor Frank Morgan) looking befuddled – nervously pleading onlookers to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

Well, the curtain has been painstakingly and slowly pulled back, with one incriminating revelation after another. Many now realize President Obama is indeed the man behind the curtain, the “puppet-master” still pulling the strings behind the scenes.

After the historic 2016 election, most Americans anticipated that Obama would – as tradition dictates – slowly withdraw from the political landscape.

However, at his very core, Obama is a “community organizer,” an ultra-progressive Chicago politician who subscribes to the teachings of the late Saul David Alinsky, author of the infamous playbook “Rules for Radicals.”

Obama’s post-presidency may give the illusion that he’s no longer actively involved in the daily give and take of partisan politics. However, just the opposite is true. The former president commands a secret army of radical loyalists, numbering between 30,000 to 40,000 and ready to protest at a moments notice.

Not surprisingly, you won’t see Obama publicly leading the charge to sabotage the Trump Presidency. Instead, Obama, like any savvy crime figure, insulates himself from direct involvement by using a network of leftist nonprofit groups led by “Organizing for Action.”

After leaving office, Obama decided to continue his shadow government by setting up shop in a fortress-like home only 2-mile from the White House – and growing a “war-chest” while quietly installing OFA field offices around the country (currently totaling over 250 offices).

While Obama’s fingerprints aren’t directly on OFA, he’s intimately involved in their daily operations. The resistance leader now tweets out orders to his minions, much like a “community organizer” looking after his flock.

Following the upset victory by Trump over Hillary Clinton, the former president addressed his followers. “It is fine for everybody to feel stressed, sad, discouraged,” he said in a conference call from the White House. “But get over it.” He demanded they “move forward to protect what we’ve accomplished.”

The most interesting aspect regarding Obama is his similarity to Saul Alinsky, right down to creating a new and improved 2018 version of “Rules for Radicals.” The new edition is simply dubbed “training manual.”

The manual calls for mobilizing against Republicans from now until Feb. 26, when “representatives are going to be in their home districts.”

The manual advises protesters to go into halls “quietly so as not to raise alarms and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together. Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions.”

I miss the days when former presidents retired to a life of puff pieces and golf games…

    Thanks for this. We were feeling a bit abandoned, seeing Barack jet skiing while America burns. Hopefully he will break cover for the mid-termms and take command of the forces of reason and civility, just in time for America to finally sick and tired of the incoherent ramblings and destructive actions of the Orange Menace and his ignorant flock. Can’t wait for it to happen!

    Look out if Barry decides to take the UN Secretary General office. From there, he could organize the whole world against the USA and Israel.

    I loved president Obama. He was smart, kind and caring. Donald Trump has destroyed all that has made America great! We now embrace NK, Russia and treat our neighbors and allies as the enemy. Find the missing children and get the families back together.
