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.”

You Betcha. The White House and the Capitol would have been surrounded by a sea of red.

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.

TERM LIMITS, now! That is the fastest way to get the entrenched corrupt vermin out of there!!

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?

Comey, Careless and Corrupt

Drunk on his own self-deluded rectitude, James Comey has become one of the most insufferable voices on the Left. He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale. That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier,

I’m experiencing 1998 déjà vu as prosecutors once again work overtime to turn extramarital affairs and the efforts to keep them secret into impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors. Unable to get the witnesses to compose the stories they want, today’s prosecutors are discovering they can simply compose the crimes by manipulating the pleas of men desperate to protect their families. The Michael Cohen sentencing memo took aim directly at both Cohen and President Donald Trump. It was used, unethically, to cast the president as directing a criminal conspiracy to make “secret and illegal” payments. Sentencing memos are not supposed

Shakespeare famously wrote of the “sceptered isle” of Britain acting as a moat “against the envy of less happier lands.” Lately, the less happier lands are winning in a rout. Britain is suffering a political meltdown as it struggles to make good on a historic vote in 2016 to leave the European Union. The decision for a so-called Brexit was a stirring statement of independence and self-government by a people who have defined themselves down the centuries by their stiff-necked resistance to anyone — whether overweening monarchs or continental tyrants — who would threaten either.

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior. For starters: Had Trump not cheated on his wife with a porn actress, he would not have found himself

Many people I know in law enforcement circles shuddered when James Comey tweeted recently that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker “may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.” To them, Comey’s Twitter attack crossed that “blue line” – the one that real cops abide by, to never criticize fellow officers and to always have their backs. I had a different reaction. I found it odd that a man who started his Twitter career by quoting Bible verses about justice might have forgotten one of the golden utterances from Jesus himself:

The Russia Probe Becomes a Banal Sex Scandal

Now that Robert Mueller and his merry band of wannabe Inspector Javerts have revealed much of their hand, we can see more clearly what their investigation is all about. Aside from the nauseatingly familiar Washington corruption of the Manafort/Podesta stripe, the Great Russia Probe of 2016-2018 (and onwards) has morphed into the even more nauseatingly familiar Washington sex scandal. If we are to believe legal-eagle Jonathan Turley--and why not; he seems pretty competent--Donald Trump´s most serious problem (possibly rising to obstruction) is not Russia collusion, whatever that is, but the hush money payoffs

The City of Lights, Paris, has been illuminated in recent days by cars set alight by thousands of protesting “Yellow Vests”—largely middle class people who earn their living by driving or who commute to get to work. The cause of their ire is a scheduled 25 cents-per-gallon increase in gas taxes, and about 10 cents on diesel, to fight climate change. French President Macron, deeply unpopular, just reversed course on the new green tax—Parisians are already paying about $7.06 per gallon for gasoline, almost half of that in taxes.

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed. But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans. According to local reports, Economic Freedom

Rep. Jerrold Nadler on Sunday said it would be an impeachable offense if it’s proven that President Trump directed former lawyer Michael Cohen to commit felonies. “Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses,” Mr. Nadler, who is in line to chair the House Judiciary Committee next year, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office — that would be an impeachable offense,” said Mr. Nadler, New York Democrat.

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.
