Who's Really Behind The Soft-Coup? Obama-Founded Activist Group Offers Anti-Trump Protest "Guide"

Tyler Durden's picture

"The left is intentionally fighting to remain relevant," remarks Armstrong Economics' Martin Armstrong, adding that "the hatred spewing out of their mouths is really off the wall." Furthermore, Armstrong warns the Obama administration is behind the so-called 'soft coup' under way and as The Post reports, an Obama-tied activist group training tens of thousands of agitators to protest Trump's policies plans to hit Republican lawmakers even harder this week.

Organizing for Action, a group founded by Obama and featured prominently on his new post-presidency website, is distributing a training manual to anti-Trump activists that advises them to bully GOP lawmakers into backing off support for repealing ObamaCare, curbing immigration from high-risk Islamic nations, and building a border wall. As The NY Post details,

In a new Facebook post, OFA calls on activists to mobilize against Republicans from now until Feb. 26, when “representatives are going to be in their home districts.”


The protesters disrupted town halls earlier this month, including one held in Utah by House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz, who was confronted by hundreds of angry demonstrators claiming to be his constituents.

The manual, published with OFA partner “Indivisible,” advises protesters to go into halls quietly so as not to raise alarms, and “grab seats at the front of the room but do not all sit together.” Rather, spread out in pairs to make it seem like the whole room opposes the Republican host’s positions. “This will help reinforce the impression of broad consensus.” It also urges them to ask “hostile” questions — while keeping “a firm hold on the mic” — and loudly boo the the GOP politician if he isn’t “giving you real answers.”


“Express your concern [to the event’s hosts] they are giving a platform to pro-Trump authoritarianism, racism, and corruption,” it says.


The goal is to make Republicans, even from safe districts, second-guess their support for the Trump agenda, and to prime “the ground for the 2018 midterms when Democrats retake power.”


“Even the safest [Republican] will be deeply alarmed by signs of organized opposition,” the document states, “because these actions create the impression that they’re not connected to their district and not listening to their constituents.”

After the event, protesters are advised to feed video footage to local and national media.

“Unfavorable exchanges caught on video can be devastating” for Republican lawmakers, it says, when “shared through social media and picked up by local and national media.”


After protesters gave MSNBC, CNN and the networks footage of their dust-up with Chaffetz, for example, the outlets ran them continuously, forcing Chaffetz to issue statements defending himself.


The manual also advises protesters to flood “Trump-friendly” lawmakers’ Hill offices with angry phone calls and emails demanding the resignation of top White House adviser Steve Bannon.


A script advises callers to complain: “I’m honestly scared that a known racist and anti-Semite will be working just feet from the Oval Office … It is everyone’s business if a man who promoted white supremacy is serving as an adviser to the president.”

None other than Robert Reich is front and center in the "Townhall Disruption Guide"...

Additionally, as Axios notes, Progressive groups are circulating information about town hall meetings on a MoveOn.org-powered website, "Resistance Recess."

More than a dozen major groups in the institutional left are involved, with groups like Planned Parenthood and unions like SEIU organizing protests. The former Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA is running localized digital ads — its first paid ads since the election — to spotlight Republican town halls. Democratic leaders like Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer will lead events.


What's in store:

  • "Resistance Events" will target everyone from Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton (Wednesday evening) to Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski (Tuesday morning) to Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Saturday morning). Protesters can find them by locale or zip code on resistancerecess.com.
  • Nobody is safe. Not even the members ducking town halls. Our Revolution, the group that spun off from Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, will launch a map tomorrow showing every congressional district in the country that they intend to swarm next Saturday.
  • Shannon Jackson, Our Revolution's executive director, says they've already got close to 200 events planned around the country and will be rallying outside nearly every Republican congressional office.


Resisting the resistance: House Republicans have been intensely prepping for these confrontations. At least 175 members attended Obamacare "listening sessions" — which were really detailed policy briefing sessions — convened by House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

Finally, Martin Armstrong concludes by remarking that the Obama administration intentionally set the stage knowing what they were doing was designed to undermine and cripple the Trump Administration. The sanctions on Putin were also intended to prevent Trump from reversing the tension created by Obama to create an international conflict. These leaks appear to be part of an intentional plot by Obama/Left to allow his supporters within the intelligence community to topple Trump if they can. Obama waited until he had just 17 days left in office to sign an executive order to expand the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) allowing it to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before any application of top secret or privacy protection would be attached. Obama never did this while he was in office. Whenever a politician does something like this, there is ALWAYS a hidden agenda. This Obama executive order changed everything with regard to national security that was put in place by an executive order dating back to Ronald Reagan. Obama opened the flood gates and this I personally believe was a treasonous act showing the Democrats adopted a strategy to under,mine Trump from the outset and to create massive civil unrest.

Trump must reinstate the national security procedures that have been in place since Ronald Reagan and fire everyone in intelligence appointed by Obama. Clean the swamp must start right there and NOW! Obama knew he would set up a shadow government and refuse to leave Washington. He seems to be working harder now while as President he may have played golf more than any other president.

Proof that Obama is behind the civil unrest is the fact he has taken to Twitter.

As he states boldly to believe in that the people can bring about change through their own action. He is implying to rise up and create civil unrest on a massive scale.

Obama has been behind this entire affair of creating civil unrest and I believe is deliberately undermining national security with his moles strategically placed within the intelligence community to undermine the government. That is unquestionable TREASON and the press will only attack Trump and never defend the country. When Obama won, you did not see the other 46% set fires and try to bring down the government. The left always demands it is their way or no way. This is why we will move into civil war in the years ahead. Independents just say live and let live – don’t bother me and I will not bother you. Leftists say you can live only as they command – they cannot sleep at night worrying what independents are doing. It’s like the Hunger Games – suppress all freedom is their agenda.

The terrorists are giving Trump a difficult time getting his administration in order..they try to block every move.

I am awaiting his Solicitor general pick and hope he is strong and can start defending the American people in court against these traitors.

Trump knows he needs to go after these terrorists but needs to get the Obama subversives out first and replace with American patriots.

I had to laugh when Wallace questioned Prebus about trump calling the media enemy of the American people....Obviosuly they are ...anyone listening can see that .

When cnn, nor, nyt etc lie to the American people they turn themselves into enemies so if their is a civil war they should not be surprised what happens to them imo.

The Deep State has accentually lost control of the Intelligence Community via its Agents / Operatives & Presstitute Media vehicle's to Gas Light the Masses.

So what Criminals at large Obama, Clapper & Lynch have done 17 days prior to former CEO Criminal Obama leaving office was to Decentralize & weaken the NSA to the other 16 Intel Agencies.

Thus, taking Centuries Old Intelligence based on a vey stringent Centralized British Model, De Centralized it, filling the remaining 16 Intel Agenices with potential Spies and a Shadow Deep State Mirror Government.

All controlled from two blocks away at Pure Evil Criminal War Criminal Treasonous at large, former CEO Obama's Compound / Lair.

When Democrats rule.


Lake Oroville

The flood control spillway is mostly destroyed, with no repair possible.

The lake is 150-200' above average for the time of year.

The next few months have the highest inflows/water levels due to snow-pack melt.

There is over double the average snow-pack this year, with more to come.

There is a large wet storm about to hit the area for days.

The power plant ducts are non use-able.

They can't lower the water level down to where it should be(650'-700') due to the power plant outlet blockage.

The diversion pool reservoir and the Thermalito diversion dam are close to being inundated at the current flow.

The failed flood control spillway will need to be used for months. This pushes the surface cavitation index into the major damage zone for the remaining upper section of the flood control spillway.

The failed flood control spillway will also now need to be used to drain ~2x the average amount of water.

The dam is running on generator power.

The emergency weir was used for the first time in the dam's 49 year life.

There is no spillway or armor for the hillside below the emergency weir.

The lack of spillway or armor was of concern to many, and ended up in legal battles.

Everything down river of the dam is currently flooded or near flood level.

I know I left out a lot of things. But it's getting boring.

I hope dam workers are reading this. You fucked up. Bad. You know you should have started lowering levels months ago. If you are smiling, deep down you know it's a mask for how close it all came to being FUBAR'ed up there. That might have been all the luck you are going to get with this situation. Be thankful.

The spillway has failed, hardly any water coming over it now. Large chunk of concrete in the river, everything is flooded below including sections of I-5 the food hwy. The water is just flowing down the mountain and eroding it.

Dam is flooding also in Morgan Hill, San Pedro Dam. Shasta is ready to overflow too. Jerry Brown hasn't done any interviews because he caused this. 1.2 mil to repair Oroville now a min of $200 million to fix it. He was too busy pushing drought then pivoted to CALexit thinking he would be El Presidente even opened a CALEXIT embassy in RUSSIA (he might be an agent.)  All the while spending 25 billion per year on entitlements for illegals.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

In Atlanta you saw the reaction.  The III% militia came out with automatic weapons to provide security at a Trump rally. They're all legal carriers of fire arms. The Antifa black hoodies showed up but didn't dare come close.  Next move will got to Obama/OFA, if he he'll send his troops into harm's way to create a national tragedy for the Lame Stream Media.

The next move is the III% militia came out with automatic weapons, surround Obama's "brick stronghold" and take him.

All Republicans have to do at beginning of town hall meetings is play that video and end it with the oily picture of Obama and Soros laughing, leaving it up there for the duration of the meeting.  That ought to do it!

When your message is right you don't need agitators. When your message is wrong but you cannot accept that it's wrong you try to gather as many people as you can to convince others you are right. It's called logic. And these folks are banking on the fact you have none.  They're pathetic actually, and the American people are seeing right through them.

Why do the people who write these stories on multiple websites not realize republicans get it. You can't find one Trump supporter who believes a thing the media is saying about Russia. We expect democrats to keep their crap up. It's not like we didn't have Ferguson, Baltimore and hundreds of protest the last few years before President Trump..

Nobody gives a shit about town halls...My guy on eastern shore, Maryland had one by Skype and 4500 folks watched, compared to less than 100 usually in person...Enough of the bullshit...What are they gonna do, asassinate cops...Piss off...Anyone unprepared deserves what they get...This country has been fucked for years.

 About that racist thing. If I am white and that makes me racists simply by being white? Ok I dont agree. But say for the sake of argument I do. There is nothing I can do about being white. Just like there is nothing a black person can do about being black. So asking me to feel guilty about being white? Well thats just as racist as me?

 Thats the rub. You cant even talk about racisim from any other race but your own without being a racist yourself. So if you want to talk about how bad it is start with yourself. The very notion that only white folks can be racist is pure silliness. Its a moving goal post that noone can reach.

"Here we see evidence of a direct connection between the Vatican and revolutionary groups in the U.S. that aim at undermining the moral structure of the U.S. and which go hand in hand with the Clinton campaign’s promotion of diversity and abortion. Recent leaks have shown how Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, was discussing how to change the views of Catholics with the help of organizations such as Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good which themselves receive funds from George Soros. George Soros heavily funds Hillary Clinton, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, and PICO. Other writers such as Elizabeth Yore have already sufficiently presented the connection between Georges Soros and Pope Francis’ Vatican."
