Liz Crokin, writer for Townhall, speculates about what is really going on with the allegations of improper communication between the Trump campaign and Russia:
Trump, Sex Trafficking & How It Ties To Russia – Townhall, March 5, 2017
The shadow government led by former President Barack Obama is working overtime to delegitimize President Donald Trump and his administration. They’ve accused and even set up Trump’s people to tie his administration to “evil” Russia and now Trump’s alleging that Obama tapped his phones. There’s never been such a concerted effort in modern history, if ever, to overthrow a democratically elected U.S. president by not only the Democrats but by some Republicans aka RINOS as well. The bigger question is why are they so desperately trying to stage this coup and sabotage his presidency? Why is Obama remaining in Washington D.C. and moving his top adviser Valerie Jarrett into his new mansion? Furthermore, why is Trump’s opposition so hell bent on tying him to Russia and using the superpower as a scapegoat when they are the actual ones who have far more questionable ties to the Kremlin?
…could the shadow government’s coup against Trump be tied to child sex trafficking? After all, both General Mike Flynn and his son were targeted after making public statements about sex trafficking.

Reminder, from February 24:
Not to make any aspersions on President Obama’s character, but, only a few days later, he curiously appeared to lay the foundation for a comeback when his friend and former Attorney General Eric Holder made the following comments:
Holder: Obama is ‘ready to roll’ – Politico, February 28, 2017
“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said, speaking to reporters at a briefing for the new group. “And he’s ready to roll.”
Throughout, Holder said, Obama “will be a more visible part of the effort.”
This provided an opening for President Trump to strike back with the wiretapping accusation:
It appears President Trump has consolidated support on the right with Fox News, Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin in his corner:
Limbaugh: We’re Watching a Silent Coup Put in Place By Obama and the Democrats – Breitbart, March 3, 2017
“We’re watching a silent coup that was put in place by Obama and the Democrats during the transition and before and after the election…..I think what is happening here is a full-fledged effort here to deny Trump the actual control of governing and the government by leaving so many Obama career people appointed, by going so slowly on confirming Trump’s cabinet appointees and other lesser bureaucratic position that remain open and haven’t been filled,”
Hannity Tweetstorm Grills Obama & Underlings on FISA Trump Attack – Breitbart, March 4, 2017
FOX News host Sean Hannity went on the warpath against President Obama and Obama administration officials Valerie Jarrett, Ben Rhodes, and former senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer on Saturday.
Mark Levin: “The Evidence Is Overwhelming” That Obama Administration Spied On Trump – Real Clear Politics, March 5, 2017
On Sunday’s edition of ‘Fox & Friends’ radio host Mark Levin discussed the evidence backing up President Trump’s claim that someone from the Obama administration was spying on him before the inauguration
Lt. Col. Shaffer: Potential Obama Wiretapping Is ‘Soviet-Level Wrongdoing’ – Fox News, March 4, 2017
Ret. U.S. Army Intelligence Officer Tony Shaffer said potential wiretapping by a sitting U.S. president is “Soviet-level wrongdoing.”
Amazing how in only one month, the media (see here) now acknowledges the existence of a deep state / shadow government instead of constantly denying it exists! They should have more closely read quotes from President Eisenhower, President Kennedy, Senator Daniel Inouye and Congressman Larry McDonald (see here).
While I commend Ms. Crokin’s work, I personally do not think President Obama is in charge of this shadow government. In fact, I hope that in the event he is indicted, he cuts a deal and tells all.
As things stand right now, this is a shrewd tactical move by President Trump to consolidate his base and fight a winnable war with the leftist faction of the deep state. The next phase (assuming there is one) will deal with certain individuals on the Republican side (see here).
