Obama set up DOJ slush fund to funnel $billions to anti-Trump groups

Joachim Hagopian is a West Point graduate and former US Army officer.

Writing for LewRockwell.com — the eponymous website of Lew Rockwell, former congressional chief of staff of Ron Paul — on March 6, 2017, Hagopian voices an assertion shared by many — that Barack Obama has set up a shadow government to subvert and overturn the legitimately-elected presidency of Donald John Trump. Referring to FBI Director James Comey’s reported rejection of President Trump’s claim of having been illegally wiretapped by the Obama administration, Hapopian writes:

The United States federal government in Washington is under attack today. Our nation’s capital is presently under siege, not from military bombs or rockets fired by any foreign enemy but from powerful enemies within. With Obama-Hillary-Soros forces ostensibly maneuvering outside official government channels, against America’s legitimately elected President Trump, and their loyalist foot soldiers – the neocons and intelligence community loyalists within the CIA/NSA/FBI still operating inside deep state, criminally conspiring with Mainstream Media, this sinister alliance is also organizing legions of clueless young leftist protesters to be at the ready for deployment in the streets to wreak havoc violently rioting as paid agitator insurgents. What we have here on our hands is an American Spring uprising, an insurgent regime change operation taking place right here in our own country currently bent on overthrowing America’s existing “democratically elected” government.

We know that:

  • Unlike other ex-presidents, Obama has chosen to remain in Washington, D.C., in a rented townhouse just two miles from the White House.
  • Obama’s consigliere, former White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, recently moved into the same townhouse.

As reported by Leon Wagener for the Daily Mail, March 1, 2017:

Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.

Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.

And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with  the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.

But a shadow government requires money, and not just money from George Soros’ various foundations that, we know, fund protests and riots. In the video below, FoxNews reports that the House Judiciary Committee discovered that right before he left the White House, Obama had set up a slush fund with multi-billions of taxpayer dollars in the Department of Justice, the money of which went into a number of “liberal” outside groups, including:

  • National Council of La Raza
  • National Community Reinvestment Coalition
  • National Urban League

As former Governor Mike Huckabee well articulates:

“Somebody ought to go to prison for this. I mean this is worse than a mafia shakedown because at least if the mafia shakes you down for protection, your store doesn’t burn down. But this is a case where the liberals have played Robin Hood. They’d stolen from the government — the taxpayers — and they’ve given it to their pals.”

FBI Director Comey rejects President Trump’s claim of Obama wiretapping

It is reported that on Saturday, March 4, FBI Director James Comey — whom Trump had retained from the Obama administration — asked the Department of Justice to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that, during the 2016 campaign, his phones had been illegally wiretapped by the Obama administration.

A wiretap cannot be directed at a US facility, without finding probable cause that the phone lines or internet addresses were being used by agents of a foreign power.

If the report about Comey is true, this means a rebellion by an unelected Executive branch official against a sitting President who is his superior. It also means that Trump’s presidency is effectively over.

From the New York Times, March 5, 2017:

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Barack Obama ordered the tapping of Mr. Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. Mr. Comey has argued that the highly charged claim is false and must be corrected, they said, but the department has not released any such statement.

Mr. Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said.

A spokesman for the F.B.I. declined to comment. Sarah Isgur Flores, the spokeswoman for the Justice Department, also declined to comment.

Mr. Comey’s request is a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the position of questioning Mr. Trump’s truthfulness. The confrontation between the two is the most serious consequence of Mr. Trump’s weekend Twitter outburst, and it underscores the dangers of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration.

The White House showed no indication that it would back down from Mr. Trump’s claims. On Sunday, the president demanded a congressional inquiry into whether Mr. Obama had abused the power of federal law enforcement agencies before the 2016 presidential election. In a statement from his spokesman, Mr. Trump called “reports” about the wiretapping “very troubling” and said Congress should examine them as part of its investigations into Russia’s meddling in the election.

In addition to being concerned about potential attacks on the bureau’s credibility, senior F.B.I. officials are said to be worried that the notion of a court-approved wiretap will raise the public’s expectations that the federal authorities have significant evidence implicating the Trump campaign in colluding with Russia’s efforts to disrupt the presidential election.

Mr. Comey has not been dealing directly with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the matter, as Mr. Sessions announced on Thursday that he would recuse himself from any investigation of Russia’s efforts to influence the election. It had been revealed on Wednesday that Mr. Sessions had misled Congress about his meetings with the Russian ambassador during the campaign.

Mr. Comey’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering is certain to invite contrasts to his actions last year, when he spoke publicly about the Hillary Clinton email case and disregarded Justice Department entreaties not to.

It is not clear why Mr. Comey did not issue a statement himself. He is the most senior law enforcement official who was kept on the job as the Obama administration gave way to the Trump administration. And while the Justice Department applies for intelligence-gathering warrants, the F.B.I. keeps its own records and is in a position to know whether Mr. Trump’s claims are true. While intelligence officials do not normally discuss the existence or nonexistence of surveillance warrants, no law prevents Mr. Comey from issuing the statement.

In his demand for a congressional inquiry, the president, through his press secretary, Sean Spicer, issued a statement on Sunday that said, “President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”

Yesterday, former George W. Bush administration attorney general Michael Mukasey told ABC’s “This Week” that, based on his reading of certain news reports, he believes President Trump is likely correct that there was surveillance on Trump Tower for intelligence purposes, but incorrect in accusing Obama of ordering the wiretapping. Mukasey said the wiretapping was “conducted at the behest of” Obama’s attorney general Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department.

Mukasey said if there were a wiretap on Trump Tower, it would mean that there was suspicion “somebody in Trump Tower may have been acting as an agent of the Russians for whatever purpose. Not necessarily the election, but for some purpose.”

Also yesterday, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) announced Congress will investigate President Trump’s claim that his phones were illegally tapped by the Obama administration. The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), however, was less specific, saying his panel “will follow the evidence where it leads, and we will continue to be guided by the intelligence and facts as we compile our findings.” (New York Post)

But what good would a Congressional investigation be if the FBI Director and the Justice Department already declared Trump’s accusation to be in error?

In a statement, Obama’s spokesman Kevin Lewis denied that Obama or the White House had ordered any such surveillance:

“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

NYT columnist Paul Krugman calls Trump presidency ‘white nationalist takeover’; urges Democrats to resist

18 U.S. Code § 2383 defines “sedition” as “Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto”.

Paul Krugman, 64, is an economist, a “Distinguished Professor” at CUNY, and a New York Times columnist. Wikipedia describes him as “born to a Jewish family”.

In an op/ed for the New York Times on February 27, 2017, Krugman comes dangerously close to sedition by:

  • Calling the election of Donald Trump a “white nationalist takeover of the U.S. government” and therefore racist. That, in turn, implies that both the election and the Trump presidency, which Krugman calls a “ruling clique,” are illegitimate.
  • Calling the only weeks-old Trump presidency “malfeasance,” the legal definition of which is “The commission of an act that is unequivocally illegal or completely wrongful”.
  • Claiming the MSM have been “bullied and bribed” by Trump into becoming “de facto propaganda organs of the ruling clique,” which is so ludicrous, it’s almost funny because if that were true, then Paul Krugman would not have his seditious op/ed published.
  • Proceeding from that premise, Krugman then applauds Democrats for their anger and outrage and urges them against making any compromises with the Trump administration, which of course would make governing impossible.

paul-krugman

Below is Paul Krugman’s op/ed, “The Uses of Outrage,” in its entirety:

Are you angry about the white nationalist takeover of the U.S. government? If so, you are definitely not alone. The first few weeks of the Trump administration have been marked by huge protests, furious crowds at congressional town halls, customer boycotts of businesses seen as Trump allies. And Democrats, responding to their base, have taken a hard line against cooperation with the new regime.

But is all this wise? Inevitably, one hears some voices urging everyone to cool it — to wait and see, to try to be constructive, to reach out to Trump supporters, to seek ground for compromise.

Just say no.

Outrage at what’s happening to America isn’t just justified, it’s essential. In fact, it may be our last chance of saving democracy.

Even in narrowly partisan terms, Democrats would be well advised to keep listening to their base. Anyone who claims that being seen as obstructionist will hurt them politically must have slept through the past couple of decades. Were Democrats rewarded for cooperating with George W. Bush? Were Republicans punished for their scorched-earth opposition to President Obama? Get real.

It’s true that white working-class voters, the core of Donald Trump’s support, don’t seem to care about the torrent of scandal: They won’t turn on him until they realize that his promises to bring back jobs and protect their health care were lies. But remember, he lost the popular vote, and would have lost the Electoral College if a significant number of college-educated voters hadn’t been misled by the media and the F.B.I. into believing that Hillary Clinton was somehow even less ethical than he was. Those voters are now having a rude awakening, and need to be kept awake.

Outrage may be especially significant for the 2018 midterm elections: the districts that will determine whether Democrats can take back the House next year have both relatively well-educated voters and large Hispanic populations, both groups likely to care about Trump malfeasance even if the white working class doesn’t (yet).

But there is a much bigger issue here than partisan politics, important as that is, given the evident determination of a Republican Congress to cover up whatever Mr. Trump does. For democracy itself is very much on the line, and an outraged populace may be our last defense.

Mr. Trump is clearly a would-be autocrat, and other Republicans are his willing enablers. Does anyone doubt it? And given this reality, it’s completely reasonable to worry that America will go the route of other nations, like Hungary, which remain democracies on paper but have become authoritarian states in practice.

How does this happen? A crucial part of the story is that the emerging autocracy uses the power of the state to intimidate and co-opt civil society — institutions outside the government proper. The media are bullied and bribed into becoming de facto propaganda organs of the ruling clique. Businesses are pressured to reward the clique’s friends and punish its enemies. Independent public figures are pushed into collaboration or silence. Sound familiar?

But an outraged populace can and must push back, using the power of disapproval to counter the influence of a corrupted government.

This means supporting news organizations that do their job and shunning those that act as agents of the regime. It means patronizing businesses that defend our values and not those willing to go along with undermining them. It means letting public figures, however nonpolitical their professions, know that people care about the stands they take, or don’t. For these are not normal times, and many things that would be acceptable in a less fraught situation aren’t O.K. now.

For example, it is not O.K. for newspapers to publish he-said-she-said pieces that paper over administration lies, let alone beat-sweetening puff pieces about Trump allies. It’s not O.K. for businesses to supply Mr. Trump with photo ops claiming undeserved credit for job creation — or for business leaders to serve on “advisory” panels that are really just another kind of photo op.

It’s not even O.K. to go golfing with the president, saying that it’s about showing respect for the office, not the man. Sorry, but when the office is held by someone trying to undermine the Constitution, doing anything that normalizes him and lends him respectability is a political act.

I’m sure many readers would rather live in a nation in which more of life could be separated from politics. So would I! But civil society is under assault from political forces, so that defending it is, necessarily, political. And justified outrage must fuel that defense. When neither the president nor his allies in Congress show any sign of respecting basic American values, an aroused public that’s willing to take names is all we have.

Paul Krugman has a habit of making extremist, threatening rhetoric. In a NYT op/ed in 2009 on why Congress must pass Obamacare into law, Krugman wrote, “A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy.”

Demonic Left’s curses on Trump backfired

2 Timothy 3:1-6, 9, 13

But mark this:
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves . . .
not lovers of the good . . .
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God . . . .
Have nothing to do with such people.
They are the kind who worm their way into homes . . . .
But they will not get very far because . . .
their folly will be clear to everyone. . . .
deceiving and being deceived.

Last night’s Academy Awards show continued its ratings drop, the second lowest in the history of the awards, with 4% fewer viewers than last year (2016), which itself had 6% fewer viewers than the 2015 show. The 2015 Academy Awards show, in turn, had ratings that were a 16% drop from 2014. (Source: The Daily Lion)

Does anyone see a trend?

As expected, this year’s Academy Awards show was saturated with anti-Trump jokes and criticisms of his policies on illegal aliens and a temporary visa ban on people from terrorist-exporting countries in the Middle East. As former Governor Mike Huckabee puts it:

Last night, ABC aired yet another Hollywood awards ceremony in which incredibly wealthy, attractive and privileged celebrities congratulated themselves on being oppressed and misunderstood. They again left the walls of their gated mansions with their armed security guards and traveled past heavily-armed police into the walls of the Kodak Theater, where they hectored us about how terrible guns and security walls are. This year included an extra layer of lectures on open borders and welcoming all migrants to come on in, from people who won’t let you get within 200 yards of them unless your name is on the VIP list.

But the Academy Awards ended in an epic fail when Warren Beatty and an embalmed Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and so announced the wrong movie, La La Land, as Best Picture, which a PriceWaterhouseCoopers accountant corrected with an envelope containing the name of the real winner, Moonlight — a more PC movie about two black homosexuals.

Two nights before the Academy Awards show, on February 24, witches and occultists in various locations across America performed a ritual at midnight, the darkest hour, to put a curse on President Trump. As the New York Post reports:

Witches around the world are expected to cast a mass spell at the stroke of midnight Friday “to bind Donald Trump and all those who abet him” — as Christian groups are urging prayer to combat this “declaration of spiritual war.”

The spell is to be performed “on every waning crescent moon until [Trump] is removed from office,” according to a Facebook page dedicated to the paranormal stunt, which involves setting ablaze an “unflattering” picture of the 45th president….

After lighting a white candle, the spell begins with the words: “Hear me, oh spirits/ Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air/ Heavenly hosts/ Demons of the infernal realms/ And spirits of the ancestors. I call upon you/ To bind/ Donald J. Trump/ So that he may fail utterly/ That he may do no harm/ To any human soul/ Nor any tree/ Animal/ Rock/ Stream/ or Sea,” is to be said when lighting the orange candle.

Practitioners are then asked to burn Trump’s photo with the orange candle while “loudly” chanting, “So mote it be!” or Trump’s famed catchphrase, “You’re fired!” over and over, according to the instructions published this month by “magical thinker” Michael Hughes on Extranewsfeed.com.

At the end of the ritual, demonstrators are to “blow out orange candle, visualizing Trump blowing apart into dust or ash.”

But the curse backfired, as seen in the disastrous conclusion of the Academy Awards show two nights later.

This is not the first time a curse on Trump has backfired. According to WND:

The far-left feminist blog Jezebel, named after the biblical queen who mandated the worship of Baal and Asherah instead of God, published a gushing story in September 2015 about “Brooklyn Witches” of immigrant descent cursing Trump because they “wholeheartedly believe that Trump and the rest of the GOP are garbage.”

Trump evidently overcame the curse, along with everything else in his way, to win the presidency a year later.

Moloch, Baphomet, Madonna

The creature who calls herself “Madonna” also placed a curse on Trump, which also backfired. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Jan. 10, 2017, the creature said:

On election night I was sitting at a table with my agent, who is also one of my very best friends, and we were truly praying. We were praying. She was on her computer. She’s friends with someone who was working on Hillary [Clinton]’s campaign and was getting blow-by-blow reports, and at one point she was like, “It’s not looking good.” It was just like watching a horror show. And then she was reading from the Quran, and I was reading from the Zohar*. We were doing everything: lighting candles, meditating, praying, offering our lives to God forever, if only. I went to sleep, and since that night, I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart. You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, “Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.” That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, “Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.” It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.

*Note: Zohar is one of the books that make up the Talmud, and the foundational work of the Kabbalah.

West Wing star Bradley Whitford launches tirade at Ivanka Trump for ‘enabling hatred’

bradley-whitford

Yes, he’s wearing a “p*ssy hat.”

From Yahoo: One of the stars of US television programme The West Wing has fired a broadside at Ivanka Trump, accusing the President’s daughter of “enabling hatred” after her call for religious tolerance.

Bradley Whitford, who played White House deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman in the political drama, responded to Ms. Trump’s message with a diatribe against her father’s policies, his attempt to dispute Barack Obama’s place of birth, and also took aim at her husband Jared Kushner and the President’s senior adviser Steve Bannon.

He also made reference to Ms. Trump’s women’s clothing business, which was the subject of controversy after her father Donald Trump publicly attacked a retailer that said it was no longer stocking her products.

Whitford managed to fit all of his grievances into the 140 character limit of one tweet.

Ms. Trump’s original message on Twitter said: “America is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship & religious centers.”

Whitford responded with: “Your father is a racist birther, Steve Bannon an anti-Semetic opportunist. You and your husband are enabling hatred. F*** your shoes.”

Whitford is not the first West Wing star to attack the Trump administration. In January Whitford’s former co-star Richard Schiff told TMZ that Mr. Trump was “dangerous,” and said the President would “do anything to delegitimise the press.”

George Clooney gives anti-Trump speech at César Awards: ‘Don’t let hate win’

clooney

Trump won. Get over it.

Via Yahoo: While he’s not nominated for an Oscar this year, George Clooney did take home the French equivalent of the Academy’s golden statue at the César ceremony.

Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamor to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

The father-to-be was honored with a career award at the ceremony, along with French film legend Jean Paul Belmondo, who also received a Lifetime Tribute during the evening.

After a lengthy clip real of his greatest hits, Clooney was called onstage by host Jerome Commandeur. Greeted with a standing ovation, Clooney thanked the crowd saying, “Merci, merci” several times. Commandeur then invited Oscar winner Jean Dujardin, Clooney’s Monuments Men costar, to present him with the César d’Honneur. The former costars embraced, and Clooney, excusing himself to the audience for his “horrible” French, asked Dujardin to translate for him.

The duo proceeded to bring down the house, as his former costar gently ribbed him by purposefully mistranslating his speech, adding words like “handsome” to Clooney’s description of himself. The speech also got political, with Clooney cautioning the audience, “As we stand here today the world is going through some pretty momentous changes, not all for the best.” He added, “As citizens of the world we’re going to have to work harder and harder not to let hate win.” At some point during Clooney’s measured words, Dujardin added on his own, “Donald Trump is a dangerous for the world.”

As for his expectant wife, Clooney gushed, “To my wife Amal, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not proud to be your husband. And I am excited about the years to come, and particularly the months to come. I love you very much.”

Clooney was in France last May for the world premiere of Money Monster at the Cannes Film Festival. His next directing project, Suburbicon, is slated for release later this year.

The César Awards is an annual ceremony recognizing the top achievements in the French film industry and is comparable to the American Oscars. Last year’s honorary César — an award named after the French sculptor who designed it — went to  Michael Douglas. Past honorees have included Scarlett Johansson, Sean Penn, Johnny Depp and Sylvester Stallone.

2016 presidential election was a spiritual war, and it’s ongoing

“For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.” –Ephesians 6

Inauguration Of Donald Trump As 45th President Of The United States

Trump was sworn in using both his own Bible, gifted to him by his mother, and the Bible used to swear in President Abraham Lincoln.

Trump’s inauguration set the record for most prayers at inaugural ceremonies.

Kate Irby reports for McClatchy DC, Jan. 20, 2017:

Trump, who is starting the day at St. John’s Church for a service at 8:30 a.m., will have six religious prayers as part of the ceremony, three invocations and three benedictions.

That’s a record, according to Jim Bendat, the author of “Democracy’s Big Day,” who was speaking on CNN Friday morning.

The first invocation is scheduled for 11:21 a.m. and the final benediction is scheduled for 12:14 p.m.

Trump will be sworn in using both his own Bible, gifted to him by his mother, and the Bible used to swear in President Abraham Lincoln.

The National Prayer Service will be held on Saturday and features 26 religious leaders. Most come from denominations of the Christian faith, but other faiths featured include Islam, Judaism and the Navajo Nation.

On the morning after his inauguration, President Trump attended an interfaith prayer service at Washington National Cathedral. Prayers asking for divine help for Trump were offered by clergy of Christian denominations (Catholic, Baptist, Episcopal), Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh.  (Daily Mail)

Contrast the above with these pics of satanists at the violent protests in D.C. on inaugural day (PJ Media):

The spiritual war continues.

On January 23, 2017, his first full day of work in the White House, which was also a day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Trump signed an executive order banning U.S. taxpayers’ funding of overseas pro-abortion groups.

WND reports, Feb. 23, 2017:

Exorcists, witches and occultists “in a number of magical groups” are announcing plans for a ritual designed to “bind Donald Trump and all who abet him.”

It’s to happen Friday at midnight at a variety of locations across the nation, and again every month until Donald Trump is no longer in office.

The rite, requiring a stub of a candle, a pin, salt, matches, a tarot card, a feather and other odds and ends, calls on spirits to ensure President Trump will “fail utterly.” It also includes burning a picture of the commander in chief, visualizing him “blowing apart into dust or ash.”
