Obama Had a Secret Plan in Case
Trump Rejected 2016 Election Results

New York Magazine, by Mattathias Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/11/2018 4:39:35 AM

In October 2016, senior staff in the Obama White House discussed what they should do if Hillary Clinton won the November election and Donald Trump refused to accept the result as legitimate. They had cause to be worried. At that time, Trump had openly speculated that the election might be “rigged.” During his final debate with Clinton on October 19, he said that his opponent “should never have been allowed to run” and declined to answer the question of whether he would concede. “I’ll keep you in suspense,” the Republican nominee said. “It wasn’t a hypothetical,” Ben Rhodes,

Hardly a secret. Get some RINO´s like McCain and Powell to say its all legit and try to isolate and cover up the truth. Obama may have been a lousy POTUS, but when it comes to covering up, he´s boss.

´It wasn´t a hypothetical´ - Ben Rhodes.

Rhodes once again demonstrates he struggles with the definitions of words.

It was very much a hypothetical, since Trump won. It was in all the papers.

Trump´s comments were equally hypothetical.

But the imaginary threat caused them to take very real steps to - what? - suppressing an uprising? Obama is and was a Third Worlder in mentality.

As we also know, they kept their plan in place and merely recast it as the Russia farce.

Obama still implemented his plan: The one where hillary lost.

It included the riots, protests, vagina hats, antifa,..., baseless accusations, kicking them low, resist, soros,...., Russian collusion probe, shutting down Alex Jones, shutting down right wing, fake sex assault allegations for USSC nominees, and more.

Classic Karl Marx, accuse your enemy of what you are doing. The article builds a whole scenario that was highly improbable from the Conservative side and implies justification for the actions that the Left is talking about, essentially saying, "Well, Trump was going to do it!".

On BO´s side, it is very likely that all those voices WOULD have spoken against Trump. Further, we would never have an inkling of the illegal and unethical actions of BO´s administration concerning the Russian narrative.

I could just see Valerie Jarrett on one side of Barry and the Mooch on the other wailing that the whole eight years was nothing but a sham. They didn´t know that we already knew that.

"Would there be protesting? I don’t want to say violence, because we didn’t talk about that as I recall.”

The Obama era crew at the White House was pretty arrogant claiming even that they were going to get the DC Republicans to facilitate Hillary and the liberal and socialist Democrats remain in power by way of a “rigged” election.

Just goes to show how wimpy the DC Republicans were considered by the Obama crew, along with Hillary’s supporting liberal and socialist Democrats, before President Trump showed that he has the guts to take on and defeat those arrogant and dishonest DC Democrats.

fta:"..Psaki also said she had doubts that Trump would go quietly if he were to be impeached..."

They were ALREADY talking impeachment BEFORE the election--this is no secret-- they have dared to say they would seek to find some lib "expert´ to say POTUS is crazy, dared Rosenstien to wear a wire to bend the truth, and Maxine "I´m on peach" Waters has already spilled the beans that this is their strategy ALL ALONG.

Hitlery did not win enough Electoral College votes, so we must now consider throwing that out??

The Founders were wise to shennaigans like this coming some day.... They knew a tyrant would come forth and thankfully gave the STATES a way to remedy an out of control DC.

After eight years of a 5th columnist muslim/communist President, who likely is not even a U.S. citizen, the march through our institutions of leftist zealots, the complete takeover of the MSM by ignorant propagandists, who never stopped cheering for a career criminal, hitlery, and trashing Trump, his election was never supposed to happen. All of we deplorables were supposed to shut up and accept our fate as serfs in the glorious socialist revolution.

These people have a secret plan for almost contingencies. That´s why they are called "conspiracies" because they conspire to either make things happen, or respond to events to twist and revise history.

Oh, the Obama White House would affirm the results of a Clinton election? And just why would we believe anything that came out of that den of vipers?

Does the Kevin Hart Oscar debacle
point to bullying from the LGBT left?
Philadelphia Inquirer, by Albert Eisenberg    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/15/2018 5:09:29     Post Reply
If there was any doubt about whether the LGBT political establishment wields cultural power in the United States, it was put to rest last week with the Kevin Hart Oscars-hosting debacle. Hometown comedian Hart, a Hollywood workhorse who might have struck the right tone at the helm of a show that apparently nobody wants to host, was hounded off and publicly shamed almost as soon as he was announced. In what is now a depressingly common phenomenon, old tweets of Hart’s, including some that contained homophobic jokes, were “revealed” (they were publicly available), and a protest movement was mounted.

Michael Cohen did himself absolutely no favors by granting a televised interview before he goes to prison. The point was to rehabilitate his image, transforming himself from tax evader, bank swindler, and all-around liar to repentant nun. But he inadvertently revealed himself even more clearly as defeated, bitter, and without a future. Over and over again, Cohen repeated that he “took responsibility” for his crimes and that he was done lying, as if he had any other choice. He pleaded guilty to all charges and has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Good Riddance to Obamacare

Surprise, surprise. Obamacare, aka the Affordable [sic] Care Act, is dead, pending a possible Supreme Court review. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth sided with the argument put forward by a coalition of Republican-leaning states, led by Texas, that Obamacare could no longer stand now that there´s no penalty for Americans who don´t buy insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court had upheld the law in 2012, by classifying the legislation as a tax. But since Congress removed the individual mandate in 2017, O’Connor ruled, there´s no way the ACA can be allowed to stand. Arrivederci, sayonara, good-bye, we hardly knew ya.

If you want a textbook example of wrongful prosecution of a man who should never have been charged with a crime, just look at the case of retired Army Lt. Gen. and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. New documents released Friday by Special Counsel Robert Mueller make it clear that Flynn is a victim of an overzealous team of prosecutors absolutely desperate to show that President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. The new court filings provide yet more proof that Mueller will stop at almost nothing and run over anyone

The debate over the Electoral College comes up constantly during American elections, including the midterms last month, with many on the left calling for a popular vote instead. The process of electoral delegates voting for one particular party even if the popular vote of their state had only a slim majority makes the presidential elections seem generally unfair. Under the electoral system, lower-population states have outsized influence, higher-population states have somewhat limited influence, and swing states enjoy all the attention. With a popular vote, so the thinking goes, each citizen would have a voice, and the president and his administration

It was 20 years ago this month that the House of Representatives impeached President Bill Clinton. The vote took place December 19, 1998, with two of four articles approved by the House, the first on grounds that Clinton had lied to a grand jury (228-206), and the second on grounds that Clinton had obstructed justice (221-212). He became only the second president (the other in 1868) to be impeached. At the start of the year, January 17, 1998, Clinton had given a sworn deposition flatly denying a “sexual relationship,” “sexual affair,” or “sexual relations” with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Turley called the move by McCabe "highly irregular," and credited U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan´s decision, saying the Clinton appointee is a well-respected, "very good judge."

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets.

It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
