Rapacity performed by an outgoing Democratic president is intentionally downplayed or simply ignored by the mainstream media. We saw such unbridled rapacity in the atavistic way the Clintons left the White House when they departed in 2000. They stole and/or vandalized furniture and furnishings of the White House and left it in a deplorable state. From a perspective of his official actions, Bill Clinton did things such as pardon Tommy Rich and closed a few loopholes to ensure his Clinton Foundation deals did not fall apart after he surrendered the Oval Office.
The Obamas are not following suit in the manner of the Clintons with pillaging the White House for three reasons. Firstly, although he committed dozens of offenses that would have merited it, Obama was not impeached, whereas Clinton was. For those who may hold askance with the conditions of impeachment for Obama, let us remember that under the parameters of the National Defense Authorization Act and the tenets of more than half a dozen overlapping executive orders, the United States (and the world) were “redefined” as a “battlefield” in the war on terror. The emergency status has never been lifted: that status was affirmed and inculcated under the Bush administration shortly after 9/11 that categorized us as being in a state of war (against terrorism) and a continuous state of emergency.
Under such “wartime” conditions, the words of Obama in 2012 were clearly treasonous and constituted an impeachable offense.
Obama declared on television to Dmitri Medvedev his intention to unilaterally exercise his powers (exceeding his authority) as the President to reduce American missile defenses in Europe (not a “treaty” action for later ratification by the U.S. Senate) without prior Congressional approval. This was a promise specifically directed to a foreign leader (indirectly through Medvedev) that would weaken America’s defensive capabilities and circumvent Constitutional Law and Congressional approval during wartime. This is treason. “Tell Vladimir I’ll have more leeway after the election” is nothing less than treason, as eloquently revealed by Obama’s “hot mike” in 2012.
This is merely one example of dozens, but as previously mentioned, all those dozens of examples are merely thrown eggs, which do not stick to Teflon.
Secondly, Obama is the primary candidate for the Democrats to run for president in 2020. After the inauguration of Trump, there will then only be 3 years and 7 months to go before the next presidential election. Obama’s campaign for “Yes We Can…Again,” will begin in about 2 ½ years. If he had been able to run in this last election, he would have won hands down and smoked Trump in the manner of a cheap cigar. We know it, and he knows it. If anything, his popularity has risen substantially now that the election is behind us. The media are now portraying him and his wife in that glowing “Hallmark” type of picture with mist around the gold-leaf framed portrait.
