Obama Establishes DC Mansion "Nerve Center" - His goal, "according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment."


This is actually surprising to me. I had called the Obamas "grifters." But, if this report is to be believed, they may be that, but also much more.

And, needless to say, this (again if the story is to be believed) is unprecedented in modern American history.

But one has to love the comedy of this line:
According to the source, Michelle and Valerie have big plans for traveling and shopping as well as strategizing over Trump.
From yesterday's Daily Mail:
EXCLUSIVE: Barack Obama's close confidante Valerie Jarrett has moved into his new DC home, which is now the nerve center for their plan to mastermind the insurgency against President Trump
  • Obama's goal is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment, a family friend tells DailyMail.com
  • Jarrett has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion to work closely with the former president and Michelle Obama
  • Jarrett lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and helped shape his domestic and foreign policies
  • Obama cannot use his West End office, a post-presidency perk, for political purposes
  • 'He's coming. And he's ready to roll.' former Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday about the former president's reentry into the political scene
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.
Jarrett played a vital - if at times low-key - role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.
The former president has set up an office on the West End of the national's capitol, where he recently hosted an open house for his White House staff - including Joe Biden, Susan Rice, Josh Earnest and Jarrett.
But the office, part of his post presidency perks, cannot be used for political purposes. The rent on his home is paid by him personally.
On Tuesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that Obama is indeed getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics.
'It's coming. He's coming,' Holder said speaking to reporters. 'And he's ready to roll.'
According to the family source, Obama was at first reluctant to assume the role of leader of the opposition.
'No longer the most powerful man in the world, he was just observing Trump and not liking what he saw,' said the source.
'He was weary and burned out after eight years in office. But Valerie convinced him that he didn't have any choice if he wanted to save his legacy. And, as usual, he bowed to Valerie's political wisdom and advice.'
In his only public comment against Trump since leaving the presidency, Obama came out in support of the protests opposing President Donald Trump's executive order to restrict immigration from predominantly Muslim countries.
A spokesman said the former president thinks they're 'citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.'
Jarrett played a vital—if at times hidden—role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies
After Obama left office, Jarrett moved all her White House belonging into the Kalorama mansion.
'There was never any doubt that Valerie would have a suite of rooms in the house that the Obama's are renting,' said the source. 'Obama trusts her judgment more than any other person on the planet, as does Michelle.
Obama doesn't make a decision without her.'
Spurred on by Jarrett and Michelle, the ex-president has come to embrace his role as the leader of the opposition against Trump, whose policies he loathes and whose presidency he considers illegitimate.
'He is going to use his immense popularity with the half of the country that identifies as liberals and progressives,' said the Obama family source. 'Millions of Americans are energized and ready to take to the streets to oppose Trump, but they need to be organized and have their anger focused and directed.
'Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy—ObamaCare, the social safety net and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place,' the source continued.
Trump's cabinet picks are also problematic for the former president, especially Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, whom Obama regards as too racially insensitive to be in charge of the Civil Rights division at Justice.
Leaving Jim Comey as FBI Director is another thorn in Obama's side. He blames Comey for announcing that he was reopening the FBI investigation into Hillary's emails eleven days before the election, which, in Obama's view, was an irresponsible act that helped elect Trump.
'He had hoped to write his memoirs, golf to his heart's content. and bask in the glory of his eight years in power and the progressive achievements he brought about. Instead, he is going to be leading the fight and strategy to topple Trump.' says the insider.
The Kalorama house, which the Obama's are renting from Joe Lockhart, who was Bill Clinton's press secretary, is still being refurbished and redecorated by Michelle.
'Michelle and Valerie have changed their minds many times over about colors, carpets, wall paper, furnishing and art,' said the source.
Michelle hired Los Angeles-based interior designer Michel S. Smith, who designed several rooms in The White House during their residence, to decorate the Kalorama home. Smith will also decorate the Obama's new home in Rancho Mirage, California.
According to the source, Michelle and Valerie have big plans for traveling and shopping as well as strategizing over Trump.
The friend said that Valerie and her signature enormous totes are going to be packed and ready to go for shopping sprees with Michelle from their native Chicago to Paris and the Far East, including Shanghai.
'They feel like they have had some great trips while in the White House, but were always working and being herded around,' said the source. 'Now they are planning to travel together - home to Chicago, to Paris and Shanghai, and shop to their heart's content.
'The Obamas both love the Kalorama house and are making it their own,' continued the source. 'They have plans to build a pool on the grounds. And they are almost certainly going to wind up buying the house from Lockart in the next few years.
'They are also planning to have a house in Hawaii, as well as in Chicago, where the Obama Presidential Library will be built. But Kalorama, where the Washington action takes place, is going to be home base.'

  1. He is nothing but a professional rabble rouser and agitator, and that's all he ever was. He is an evil man, who has surrounded himself with evil people. The Left will do anything to regain power, anything. Nothing would surprise me. It is good that President Trump has surrounded himself with military men. Obama no longer controls them, President Trump does.
    These people are dreaming dangerous dreams. They are certainly a danger to the American people. He has never cared about that. He is proving it with these actions. He is proving those of us who said he was evil, said he was a narcissist, said he was a self-absorbed megalomaniac were correct.
    Democrats are proving we can never let them near an important office again.

  2. The domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, was instrumental in recruiting/training this community organiser (commie operative) and he is way too young to retire.

    He has a certain education, the animus against America, the blackguard heart of a racist Mahometan, and he will do as he desires knowing full-well he has the media (Glenn Reynolds rightly identifies the media as "activists with a byline") supporting him all the way.

    The Deep State, The Establishment (include the demented Dubya in the mix) and both parties are allied in opposing Trump.

    It is hard to see how he survives for four years, especially with his self-inflicted wounds of choosing Neo-Con Generals for his cabinet.

    On the other hand, he is a blast to watch when he blasts the opposition, what with his hand movements, his pursed lips and his nicknames etc.

  3. I think Donald Trump is vastly underestimated in terms of intelligence and planning. People so often confuse being glib with being intelligent, and one does not represent the other. Donald Trump is not glib, he is proving however, to be extremely intelligent and deep.
    I am concerned about the Establishment as well. We are seeing Republicans "slow walk" his appointments, and yes, Dubya, et al. There is a startling level of resistance, but it comes from Hell. This man is not a politician, and he was elected by the American people who have been..."passed over" by the Establishment. It will be Civil War II if they go too far. We will not have this stolen from us. I have no doubt that this is true.

    1. What hasn't yet been stolen from us?

      We used to rely on conservatives but they could not even conserve bathrooms for women only.

      Sessions exposed his belly to the enemy and that was a Yuge mistake; he never should have resigned.

      Trump, it is clear, can take a beating but he has never faced such a puissant and implacable enemy as the deep state which has tricks we can't even imagine.


      The country was toast when it chose religious liberty and refused to worship Jesus as King and we are just the lucky ones to be alive to witness our ineluctable destruction as a nation (well, we ceased being a nation a long time ago), I mean country.
