By Nancy Thorner & Bonnie O'Neil -
American patriots are calling the activities of Organizing for America treasonous. That is a heavy accusation worth exploring for facts and accuracy, which is the intent of this article. Organizing for Action (OFA), was founded by leftist Democrats to help President Barack Obama promote an agenda that does not align with that of our forefathers. One of their first goals was to question America's long-held opinions on important issues with which they disagreed and to thus promote changes to our established laws and historical concepts. They succeeded in many of their goals by using the power of the presidency and specific like-minded media sources to influence and persuade people to their political views.
Inequality was one of their key tools used to promote division among us. They pitted Blacks against Whites and the poor against the wealthy to divide us. They promoted themes of inequality, racism, and police brutality. One would think that after Americans had just elected Barack Obama, a Black man, a majority of Americans no longer could be accused of advocating racial divides. We could bask in the progress America had made regarding racism. Instead, the Obama administration, OFA, and specific media sources sought isolated examples to persuade the public racism remained a major problem in America
Inequality as a tool to promote division
Consider the following examples of how this was being perpetrated and promoted. George Zimmerman (a White/Hispanic man) was purposely targeted because he had killed a Black teenager, Trayvon Martin. After misleading media stories for months, a jury of his peers examined the facts and found Mr. Zimmerman not guilty of murder.
Other similar occurrences of White on Black crime began receiving national attention, until facts finally proved the initial impression to be false. The most explosive example happened in Ferguson, Missouri, when a White police officer (Darren Wilson) shot and killed a Black teenager (Michael Brown). By the time this tragedy was over, much of the town was destroyed by riots, looting, fires, and protestors with weapons. Some were even bused in from other parts of our country for the express purpose of protesting. The officer in question had to be held in protective custody. As a result, this small town experienced a degree of destruction from which it has never completely recovered. In the end, a jury of Blacks and White town folk ruled the Black man in question was not the victim. He was far from an innocent teen and the officer was anything but a racist. Once again people began seeing this as another attempt by some to promote racism and portray cops as corrupt, before having all the facts.
The Obama years continued to be peppered with accusations of racism, without significant proof, and which often centered on claims that police officers targeted Blacks. This incited some to become angry demonstrators who marched in our city streets, chanting slogans such as “Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon.”
Some individuals jumped to judgement, believing these unproven claims of selective police brutality was a major occurrence and represented a severe problem in America. One man decided he needed to execute policemen and did so by fatally shooting two officers sitting in their patrol car eating lunch. That tragic incident toned down the anti-police rhetoric, but such has gradually raised its ugly head again and persists today.
Disbelief and uncontrolled angry follow Trump's election
Shock waves penetrated those aligned with OFA, especially leaders like George Soros, when “we the people” elected Donald Trump, a man who had never been involved in politics. OFA had spent a great deal of money and time creating the atmosphere that suggested America needed a drastic change. Never in their wildest imagination did they think that the change Americans wanted was those Donald Trump had promised. This new President in Trump was not only their adversary, but was likewise critical of the “D.C. Establishment” and the growing number of Leftist media sources with whom many in the OFA organizations had developed solid relations.
It didn't take long until the OFA and others of their ilk began maligning our new President before he had even spent a day in the Oval Office. All associated with the OFA, which began and grew under Obama, have since proven unrelenting in their efforts to destroy President Trump and all those who align themselves with Trump and his ideas for making this nation great again.
An article dated Feb. 10, 2017 – Obama-Aligned Organizing for Action Relaunches for Trump Era
"Had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, OFA was likely headed for a wind-down. But with Trump in the White House, the relaunched OFA will claim a spot in the increasingly crowded marketplace of groups looking to fight the new president’s agenda."
Four field organizers were hired in states home to key senators as part of its campaign to defend Obama’s signature healthcare law. OFA helped get Obamacare supporters to flood town halls for Florida Republican Rep. Gus Bilirakis, Illinois GOP Rep. Peter Roskam, and California Rep. Tom McClintock, which lead to national news coverage about anti-repeal backlash.
Behind the scenes of OFA
To fully understand how Organizing For America (OFA) operates, it is necessary to analyze and understand the network of non-profits led by its organizers, such as George Soros. The group has an enormous war chest (new reports claim over $50 million) and a network of approximately 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings indicate membership at 32,525 of volunteers nationwide.
Reasonable people ask why this group began undermining President Trump within days after his election and are suspicious of the unprecedented tactics used to destroy Trump ever since. Particularly alarming for reasonable people is that there are many in the media who appear complicit with the OFA plan to destroy President Trump. Efforts began way before Trump had a chance to demonstrate his governing capabilities.
Obama's break with tradition
There is a clue to consider as we ponder what is happening politically in America today. It helps explain the immediate and unrelenting criticisms and opposition to President Trump. It has been an American tradition that after the election of a new President, the former president leaves office and wisely goes back to his home state once the new president is sworn in. Former presidents then refrain from making any political statements or comments regarding current policies or situations facing the new President and especially avoid addressing any political controversies. They do this to allow for a smooth transition of power, which is something people in other countries can only envy, with little hope of attaining. Former president Obama and his wife elected to break with this important tradition.
President Obama bought a house in Washington D.C. and invited his former senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, to move into his new home, blocks from the White House. There wasn’t any purpose given for the break in tradition, but Obama’s excuse for inviting Jarrett into his home was she planned to help him write his book. It is telling that after almost a year there has been no further mention of Obama’s book. It is fact that President Obama, his wife, and many of his friends continue to be engaged in partisan politics. This alone should concern the public because it speaks volumes as to why there has been non-stop defaming of Trump and his administration by powerful Democrats and Leftist mainstream media sources still faithful to the former President.
This "Resistance" opposition group blatantly developed malicious ways to stop President Trump and his administration from achieving even the most basic accomplishments. For instance this is an example of how they keep our President from carrying out his plans: 1. Trump issues an immigration executive order; 2. The OFA signals all its groups to begin protesting with pre-scripted statements from a variety of pro-immigrant groups; 3. The ACLU uses its lawyers to file lawsuits in jurisdictions where known activist judges will favor their objectives; 4. Leftist volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; 5. The liberal, biased media springs to action in support of these activities; 6. Media sources like twitter light up to put out information already written for the occasion, and 7. Shockingly, this has been followed up with street violence.
"Resistance" effort demands exposure
Exposing the "Resistance" effort is essential for the sake of this nation. It must be exposed for the sake of our nation. It is worth asking how our forefathers might have responded to those who refused to accept the results of a fair presidential election? It defies all that has made America a nation to be envied. Instead, it serves as a warning for serious attention and intervention. This Resistance is far more than just an opposition group working to keep a fair, balanced structure for America. This group is acting outside of our governing structure as a mock government to intentionally create controversy where there is none, make unfounded accusations against our leaders, and use the media to malign and ridicule President Trump whenever possible.
The real resistance that makes sense is to oppose those who embrace un-American tactics. Why after almost a year do they refuse to accept President Trump as our country’s leader?
So far the Resistance effort hasn't succeeded in taking down President Trump; however, the Washington Free Beacon issued a report on November 17, 2017, pursuant to an internal document it had received, of a secretive three-day dark money conference held at California's posh La Costa Resort of the Democracy Alliance, the “largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States.” Each deep-pocketed liberal donor pledged to direct hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to approved left-wing groups to plot the next steps of the "resistance." Nancy Pelosi was featured, along with George Soros, in headline addresses.
According to another document obtained by the Free Beacon, Geoge Soros, who co-founded Democracy Alliance, is pushing to elect liberal prosecutors in 2018, and is further pushing behind the scenes to fund an even-more-radical plan to potentially take away the people's right to elect judges. Link
Although the Democracy Alliance went to great lengths to keep the identities of its members and guests confidential at its fall conference from Wednesday, November 17 through 19 at CA's La Costa Resort, the Washington Free Beacon obtained a detailed conference agenda that lists both events and featured guests. Among those in attendance was Washington Post reporter Janell Ross, who closely covered the 2016 presidential campaign for the Washington Post and has since continued to cover the Trump administration. Ms. Ross attended the progressive movement conference without notifying her superiors.
The role of patriots
Patriots must demand the media stop catering to this extreme opposition group and instead expose these facts. Opposition groups can be helpful, but what Leftist groups have done and continue to do is dangerous at several levels.
President Trump was fairly elected by “we the people.” What has been happening since goes well beyond partisan politics, some believe it even rises to the level of treason. Unfortunately, even once trusted media sources no longer can be relied upon to be impartial. That is a major detriment to our people and country.
Fortunately, there are still honest, bi-partisan media sources. Each of us must seek them for accurate information or risk being influenced by those with an agenda opposite from that established by our forefathers, as evidenced in our amazing Constitution. We don’t need drastic “changes,” we need common sense solutions which are presented and voted upon by our elected officials.
