The times, they are a-changin' 'over there'! Normally, a US President having fulfilled his duties for four or eight years shuffles off stage Right or Left according to his temperament, and then takes up golf or gardening but definitely something that keeps him out of sight and out of mind in order to leave his successor a clear field. That is, either good manners or good sense but it is certainly traditional.
Needless to say, Obama being a radical ideologue - OK, a fanatic if you insist - pays no heed to the niceties of good behaviour and thus he has set himself up with an 'alt-White House' in Washington just down the road from the real White House. According to George Neumayr at The American Spectator, this operational centre has something like 30,000 volunteers nationwide under the name of 'Organising For Action (OFA)'. It has raised in excess of $40 million in contributions (from anonymous contributors) and various grants. According to the New York Post:
"OFA, in IRS filings, says it trains young activists to develop “organizing skills.” Armed with Obama’s 2012 campaign database, OFA plans to get out the vote for Democratic candidates it’s grooming to win back Congress and erect a wall of resistance to Trump at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue."
Well, all's fair in love and war but when it comes to politics - anything goes! However, there may be a piece of grit in this well-oiled machine - and they don't come much grittier than the Clinton family! According to Heather Wilhelm at the NRO, any comforting thoughts you might have that no matter how rough and ready the Trump presidency will be, at least the Clintons are finished, could be a Big Mistake! The malignant 'HillBilly' is still nursing her entitlement feelings but increasingly eyes are turning towards Chelsea Clinton.
If you follow the news, you can’t miss Chelsea these days: Like feminist darling Lena Dunham, she’s media-omnipresent, for reasons most normal people cannot discern. Do you want to know Chelsea’s opinion on the GOP’s Obamacare replacement? How about her thoughts on the latest Ben Carson kerfuffle? Want to hear what she thinks about International Women’s Day? No? Well, too bad. Clinton is on the menu, folks.
Don't say you haven't been warned!
