FoxNews.com reports that
Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and former President Barack Obama reportedly met last month as the congressman mulls over a run for the White House in 2020.
The two met at Obama’s offices in Washington D.C., on Nov. 16, according to a Tuesday report from The Washington Post.
O’Rourke, who recently lost a Senate campaign to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz, initially said he would “not be a candidate for president in 2020,” but changed his tune last week at a town hall in El Paso, telling reporters that his initial comment was made when winning the Senate race was “100 percent our focus.”
Now, O’Rourke said, he and his wife are “thinking through a number of things” and have “made a decision not to rule anything out.”
His reported meeting with Obama came just four days before the former president labeled O’Rourke “an impressive young man.” Speaking to his former strategist, David Axelrod, Obama said the Texas politician appears to be running on a platform that he actually believes.
“What I oftentimes am looking for first and foremost is, ‘Do you seem to mean it? Are you in this thing because you have a strong set of convictions that you are willing to risk things for?’” Obama said, noting that O’Rourke struck him as that kind of person.
And in addition to the president’s praise, former Obama aides have reportedly compared O’Rourke to Obama — a young, liberal politician who rose through the ranks after establishing a grass-roots movement.
A former senior adviser to O’Rourke told NBC News recently that many former Obama officials are saying: “If we can be helpful as you think about this, let us know. If you want our perspective on what it’s like to run a national campaign, let us know.”
And young Democrats don’t appear to be pushing O’Rourke, whose House term ends Jan. 3, to the side.
New Hampshire’s Young Democrats political group, as well as Iowa Democrats, last month invited O’Rourke to speak in their respective states.
The pieces are beginning to fall into place, gentle readers.
Back in May of 2017, Yahoo News reported that
Former President Barack Obama gave a speech Tuesday in Milan, Italy, at a summit on food innovation. During a question-and-answer session after the speech, Obama may have tossed in a dig at people who didn’t show up to the polls in November.
“You get the politicians you deserve,” Obama said without mentioning President Trump. “And if you don’t vote and you don’t participate and you don’t pay attention, then you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interests.”
The comments came during a discussion about leadership.
“The mark of a good leader is somebody who is able to empower other people,” Obama said. “So often we think of leadership as somebody at the top who is ordering other people around … but it turns out, for me at least, what made me understand leadership was when I could see somebody who thought they didn’t have a voice, thought they didn’t have influence or didn’t have power, and teach them how to speak up on the things that were affecting their lives.”
“Politicians can help guide policy,” he added. “But change is going to come from what people do every day.”
The 55-year-old former president, who signed a record book deal in March, said he is spending most of his time lately working on a memoir, “fighting Michelle for closet space” and carving out the “next phase” of his political career: empowering “an effective network of global activists.”
Two months before, in March of 2017, during his Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show, Rush Limbaugh stated that,
…The story is Valerie Jarrett moving in to the Obama family home. What the hell’s up with that?
There’s a story here is about how Obama and his people are running the resistance operation from that home, and that’s why she’s moved in. The story here is the Democrat Party being blown out of the water in election after election after election. The story here is Barack Obama’s agenda has been totally reputed by the American people. It has been rejected in 2010. It was rejected in 2012. It was rejected in 2016. It was sent packing. The story here is that Barack Obama is humiliated and angry and embarrassed that his effort to transform the United States of America into some kind of socialist paradise has been interrupted, that he was the architect of the Democrat Party defeat. And that cannot stand for the history books! And so this story is all about the Democrat Party trying to rewrite history and make it look like they actually won were it not for the cheating of the Russians and Trump.
They’re trying to convince the Europeans of this. They’re doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump, his administration, his victory. That is the story that people need to focus on because there’s evidence for that. There is evidence at every town hall protest. There is evidence all over this country every day that this sabotage is going on.
Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, a favorite of the 60s counter-culture, was also on the reading list of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and his First Secretary of State and Failed 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Let’s look at rule #8 – rule #13:
8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.
12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
It’s very apparent from what has happened during Trump’s Presidency that somebody’s read Alinsky’s book.
In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.
From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, Including Former President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.
As I have written, during Obama’s two terms as President, America suffered under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.
Obama owes everything that he is to the benevolence and largess of America and her people.
…And, the money of Former Nazi Sympathizer George Soros
In his tenure as President, he proved that he was president of some of the people, not all of the people.
And, those of us, whom his failed political ideology did not appeal to, had enough of his failed leadership and decided not to go “quietly into that good night” by voting for Donald J. Trump, instead of Obama’s chosen successor, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Organizing For America, the Far Left Activist organization that Obama brought with him during his presidency, remains active.
Obama, in conjunction with Soros and his numerous “nonprofit organizations” have already been training not just “global activists” but “community activists” as well.
Do you think that I am exaggerating? Go to BarackObama.com, and you will read the following…
As President Obama has said, the change we seek will take longer than one term or one presidency. Real change—big change—takes many years and requires each generation to embrace the obligations and opportunities that come with the title of Citizen.
“True democracy is a project that’s much bigger than any one of us. It’s bigger than any one person, any one president, and any one government. It’s a job for all of us.”
The thing is, boys and girls, “true democracy” is MOB RULE.
That is why our Founders made us a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
It is also why they created an Electoral College.
…To prevent what Barack Obama and all the rest of those in the Radical Far Left Democratic Party want to accomplish.
Let’s face it. The Democrats have no one in their hierarchy that could legitimately beat Trump in 2020.
And, the “Socialist Firebrand Movement is in full swing among the Dems.
Meanwhile, Obama wants to mentor a whole new generation of Far Left Socialists, just like him.
If you believe that this recent meeting with Beto O’Rourke was just a “fluke”…you obviously haven’t been paying attention.
And, you probably believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is a unbiased public servant “just doing his job”.
Just remember…now you know where the money is coming from.
And, who is behind it.
President Trump is going to have to deal with this situation head on.
Or, as the late Fred Thompson, in his great role as Admiral Josh Painter, in “The Hunt for Red October” said,
This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.
Until He Comes,
