Is Obama the First U.S. President Ever to Try to Topple His Successor?

George Washington's picture

This post won't debate whether Trump or Obama are good or bad guys.  It will simply ask a historical question ...

The Daily Mail claims:

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.

 

***

 

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.’

 

***

 

‘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.

 

If true, would this be the first time in U.S. history that a former president has tried to topple his successor?

What legacy might that be?

Bombing more countries than bush
Selling more weapons than any other president
Obamacare
surveilliance state
TPP
Labor participation rate at all time low
number of people on public assistance at all time high

He should be: the first President found guilty of Treason and hung.  Talk about straightening out a crooked path.  That bunch of Lawyer's, in DC, those cowardly, criminal, pedo's in DC, would sure as heck get the message then.  For the people, by the people.

The pinnacle of arrogance: destroy the republic to save your legacy.

Maybe he'll be the first to be executed for treason and sedition by his successor.  Maybe we can celebrate the event as a holiday, during black history month, of course.

The deep left wants globalisim at any cost.  They win mightily with cash and power.  We lose everything as normal citizens.

Is he the first?
Not sure, but he'll be the first one dragged out of Kalorama and hung from the nearest lampost. Him and Valerie and Loretta and Moochelle for good measure.

"Eerily reminiscent of Benito Mussolini's end in 1945, hundreds of Patriots waited in line today near Kalorama to toss eggs, rotten vegetables, or take a swing with a Louisville Slugger against the hanging bodies of Oblama, Michael, and ValJar.

"Business was brisk as the local vendors sold hundreds of rotten eggs, tomatoes, and baseball bats enraged citizens used to take out their vengeance against the three Traitors.

"It feels sooo good," said Frank Smith, an auto mechanic from Bethesda, MD. "I mean, the little commie rat fucked over our country!"

"Officials say once the crowd's passions are spent, the bodies will be buried at sea in accordance with Islamic tradition."

I support Trump and his appointees, however, his ppl are either too naive or don't have a back bone for this insurgency.

Since he is no longer POTUS fuck you Obama, you bankster, cum guzzling assblaster.

He was never a legit President of the U.S., seeing that he hated the U.S.

Barry just can't shake this FISA itch. .... I wonder if it's contagious?

George Webb has some good detail on the FISA court OPeeping Barry story.

'Parallel construction' when building a LE case, Google it if you want to know what the FISA court is really all about. ..... The phone taps are there and used all of the time and the FISA is the 'Get Out Of Jail Free' card for all the agencies listening in to your phone conversations. ..........

When legal details count, .......FISA is there..........to rubber stamp your bad, bad, bad LEO behavior.

Live Hard, Killary Might Be Throwing Barry Under The Moving Prison Bus Along With His Consular, Die Free

Its really not "parallel" construction is more aptly named retroactive construction.

DC. Nice avatar there son. I see where they hit you with a hatchet, then applied a torniquet. Hope it did not leave a scar.

Haven't caught up with George in a while. Seems he's still stringing along. Wonder why he hasn't been bumped yet. Did he mention the latest banker parkour fail? Heard Mr. Bell is now planking out somewhere up in NY.

Alexander Hamilton gets that distinction...Bitchez!

Fidelios Automata's picture

Not true, since Hamilton was never president. Like Barry, Hamilton was not a native born citizen, and in those days they respected the Constitution.

flyingcaveman's picture

I'm sorry. I'm completely fucked up.  I have to figure out why I though he was the second president.  I thought he fucked a bunch of shit up and Jefferson had to go in and un-fuck everything again.  Maybe that's why.

He's the same as the zimbawe fossil who didn't like the election result. Only he has a higher IQ dictatorship.

The peaceful transition of power has traditionally been one of the hallmarks of America's system of government. Obama and Valerie Jarret hate the United States and are trying to end the system of government we have. They and their operatives should be charged and tried for sedition.

Maybe he can be the 1st guest on Killary's new TV show.  They can give each other handjobs under the desk while telling the person watching how evil everyone else is.

You voted him in twice and now he's 'weary and burned out' after serving you the people.

Give the man a break.

zebrasquid's picture

The majority of us didn't vote for him or at all, given the two RINOs that he ran against,

Don't focus on Mr. O, he's just another puppet for the PTB... all of the establishment is... puppets... and though they like to consider themselves 'special', 'exceptional' and the like, in truth, they are all expendable, same as the rest of the herd.... they are used to keep the public distracted... to keep their eyes off of the prize.

Everyone dies and is replaced. Apologists for Obama like to claim he is a tool for the globalists or was undone by bad advice from his staff. Bullshit. The former golfer in chief is neither a tool or patsy. He's one of the many who are members of the cabal and is in place to work his way to the top as the old ones die off. All of the top globalists from the Bushes to Soros were bottom dwellers at one time and don't bother to hide in the shadows.

treefeller's picture

Bush clan has been around awhile. Historically speaking I've read some history on the clan that dates to the late 1800's. I am sure they are connected along the way the last couple of centuries.

Barry is looking for a $1.5 billion (with a b) endowment for the Obama Center. Found this in a Chicago Tribune article.

Now, he didn't take the money while in office, but he's probably got that much in pledges from the banks, health care companies, insurance companies, the Saudis, natural gas companies, and so on. Certainly the hundreds of billions (and trillions, for finance) he shoveled their way during his term deserve at least that much slush.

But you can't spend a pledge. So he still has to get the cash to become the first billionaire through corruption in American history. Still on the job.

Holy Sheep Shit!

"Is Obama the First U.S. President Ever to Try to Topple His Successor? "

- Not only Sheep Shit, But Sheep Dipped, We still don't know who Obama is, Private Sponsor to his Law School, Life Long Sponsor apparently, all records sealed
- Apparently Barack Obama Can't Write, since there are no articles in the Harvard Law Review
- It' is like he was molded toward the Madala Model, Whinney Mandala & Nelson Mandala, South African Radical Activists

- Sheep Dipped is probably a Banking Term, which the CIA adopted later to sanitize someone's background and provide a new Identity

When BO first ran for POTUS we were told this unknown was the smartest man ever to have run for president. With absoutely no proof of his brilliance, the media and the left blindly lapped up it. Informed voters still know that transcripts proving such academic excellence, if true, would have been plastered all over the media prior to the election and yet NOTHING has ever come to light which begs the rhetorical question....Was he really such a brilliant student or was he something else?...average?...marginal?..."present"?...failing?... a bong sucking slacker who was handed a deploma because he is a minority? My guess is that if his transcripts are ever made public we're going to find that he is academically unremarkable and about as smart as a nonfunctional teleprompter. 

zebrasquid's picture

He was nothing but the white guilt liberals' wet dream.

not dead yet's picture

Actually he may have well been a brilliant student, just like most liberals are. Once out of the classroom these people are some of the stupidest and ill informed people on the planet. If these brilliant people did their homework they would know most of the charges against Trump and his people are made up bullshit. Like Bannon and Breitbart being white supremacists. Most very intelligent people have no clue to their weaknesses and believe in their superiority. Thus they are too smart to know how stupid they are. Thus they only believe what they want to hear. Even though they may not be the brightest on the planet the Hollywood crowd living in their make believe lala land believe they are superior and ultra smart too while reality shows them to be dumber than a box of rocks.

Some say his mother was a CIA asset in Indonesia and that the Kenyan they say fathered him was a key ally of Tom Mboya and that is how he got to Harvard from Kenya having first been sent to Univ Hawaii funded by African American Students Foundation and its sponsors, Harry BelafonteJackie Robinson, and Sidney Poitier, Mboya raised sufficient funds to cover the students’ travel expenses.

Just like the Left is trying to take out Trump's staff, perhaps Trump should go after Obama's brain trust.

Seriously, IRS would be perfectly justified to ask whether Jarrett paid fair market value rent to live in the White House for eight years.  If not, did she report the value as income and pay income taxes on that amount?  People paid Clinton hundreds of thousands just to overnight in the Lincoln bedroom, so we're talking about yuuuuge sums here and significant tax liability.

The days of the USA droning, bombing, terrorizing, and indiscriminately killing the people of the world, without repurcussion, are over.

Leaders like Bush, Obama, Cheney, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John McCain, etc.... will answer for their reckless and illegal decisions.

There are voices crying out, and those cries will turn to shouts, and those shouts will turn into action, throughout the entirety of Europe, Russia, the Baltics, Africa, and the entire Middle East, for the evil empire to answer for their atrocities.

Obama is a punk always hiding behind strong women. They all have to make decisions for him. He can't do shit...!

Someone commissioned a sculture of a naked Obama and had it put on the campus of Gallaudet College with a posted sign.

GRAB A PUSSY.

It's great fun and everyone laughs out loud, but no one can hear because it is a deaf community.

The other thing that's great about living where he does is that no one can hear him read the teleprompter and plot his nefarious plans.

Strong women...and a strong man that looks sorta like a woman, and may or may not still have a Mr. Winkey...
