A sickening prospect


I’m sure many readers saw video of former President Obama visiting the White House two days ago, surrounded by throngs of admiring staffers, visibly popular, shaking hands with all and sundry . . . while President Biden slunk around the room, ignored by almost everybody, a nonentity.  It was a tragic sight.  I’ve said before that the way Biden is being treated is nothing more or less than elder abuse, and this was all-too-visible evidence of that.  He’s tolerated, nothing more – a useful fig-leaf for those who are really running things.  The video of President Biden holding onto Obama’s shoulder in a desperate attempt to get his attention and appear “part of the team” was truly pitiful.

What shakes me to the core is an observation by Andrea Widburg at American Thinker.

The ostensible reason for Obama’s return to the White House was to celebrate Obamacare’s twelfth anniversary … The reception in Obama’s honor, though, hinted that the event’s real purpose was to signal to Democrat apparatchiks that Biden is now shark chum.

. . .

There are three takeaways:

  1. Barack Obama, whether in his walled D.C. Kalorama home or in his coastal properties in Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii, is probably the one running the White House show.
  2. Obama has signaled that Biden’s presidency is over, making Biden toxic.  That’s the message Tucker Carlson drew, something he illustrated with clips showing Democrat media talking heads finally addressing Biden’s economic failures.
  3. Kamala Harris still thinks she has a shot at the presidency when (not if) Biden is removed.  She was auditioning hard for the job, trying to show Obama that she’ll do better than Biden at preserving and expanding the hard-left Obama legacy.  However, Obama, who is an extremely smart politician, despite his ignorance and broken, Marxist moral compass, knows that Kamala is as bad as, or even worse than, Biden.

And that fact left me with an admittedly wild theory about how Obama may intend to fix things: Obama’s aiming to get back into the Oval Office.

My premise is that Obama fully understands that, if Biden is ousted immediately under the 25th Amendment, there are only idiots and incompetents to take his place.  If it’s not Kamala Harris, then it’s Nancy Pelosi and, if not her, then Patrick Leahy, Antony Blinken, Janet Yellen, Lloyd Austin, Merrick Garland…  Obama knows none of these nonentities will secure the transformation he promised America.  Instead, there are three steps to return Obama to the presidency:

  1. Have the Democrat establishment remove Kamala Harris from office, whether through threats or bribes.
  2. Have the Democrats declare that, because world instability (Ukraine, Putin, China) puts us at unprecedented risk, only a politically seasoned person can be vice president, with Obama graciously accepting that role.
  3. Oust Biden using the 25th Amendment.  And voilà!  President Obama (again).  He can even have Stacey Abrams as his veep.

The 22nd Amendment does not bar Obama from regaining the presidency this way.  It only stops him from being “elected to the office.”  The three steps above avoid an election.

Obama will then have two and a half years to lock down America’s “fundamental transformation” into a fully socialized third-world country, and Biden has given him a head start when it comes to destroying institutions.  Heck, if Obama does the job right, he can be the new Putin or Erdoğan: America’s president for life.

And yes, I agree this sounds crazy, but events since 2020 show that we really are nothing more than a fancy banana republic.

There’s more at the link.

It’s been obvious for a long time that Obama is running the White House.  Right from the start, many former members of his administration moved into the Biden administration and ran it their way.  Unofficially at least, it’s already Obama’s third term.  If Ms. Widburg’s speculation is correct, it may become official after all.

I can’t think of anything worse for us than more of the authoritarianism, autocratic arrogance, naked anti-Americanism and socialist extremism that we saw in Obama’s two terms.  Another Obama term is just too ghastly to contemplate.  I suspect things will be worse when the “man behind the curtain” no longer needs to conceal his role.  He’ll be able to devote all his attention to “unmaking America” – and, on the evidence of his past administrations, he may even succeed.  Biden’s bad enough.  He’d be worse – much worse.

I don’t want to live in a country like that, thank you very much . . . and I suspect most of my readers feel the same.



  1. 1) The spectacle of Biden's irrelevancy is readily apparent.
    2) The scenario of putting Hopey Dopey back on the throne is beyond ridiculous, all the way to recockulous.
    To even make him the Veep would require a majority of both houses, something the Dems are unlikely to possess for even the balance of this year.
    Trying to bootstrap someone ineligible to run for the presidency back in the job through constitutionally dubious means would be liable to be the best way to trigger the exact civil war long discussed throughout the blogosphere.
    3) That being said, I hope they go ahead and try it. I'm tired of the shadow war: let's get this out in the open, and decide which side gets to continue to live in the country, and which one is exterminated, to the last child.
    Nothing lesser will suffice.

  2. Yes, the replacement VP or any other cabinet official has to be approved by either both houses Congress or the Senate, respectively.

    But this is not outside realm of stupidity that is the current Democrat party/Deep State (BIRM).

  3. If the democrats were ballsy enough to go for this strategy I think that would be the spark that lights up a hot Civil War. You can only push people so far and I think that would be the limit.

  4. I've been talking with friends about exactly this scenario since Nov. 2020. And this transition has to happen before this November because they need a Dem-controlled Congress to confirm him.

    And if it happens, the best case outcome is civil war…which the Dems are counting on winning. To do that, they will need to use police tactics at a level of terror which no American wants to think about…which is why it might work.

  5. Obama can enjoy his victory tour from inside the beltway bubble. It is apparent, even from unreliable polling, that Amreica doesn't want Obama back.

  6. 1. Nancy Pelosi steps down as Speaker.
    2. The Democrats running the House elect BHO as Speaker. (There is no provision that the Speaker has to be a member of the House.)
    3. VP Harris is removed.
    4. Joe the Usurper is removed.
    5. Speaker BHO becomes President.
    6. Nancy takes back her gavel.
    7. Congress elects someone to be VP. Michelle Obama?

  7. Nah, all bamster needs is another talking head idiot out front, kamala rises the next vp will be the shadow prez. Question is who do they put forward?

  8. Obama is NOT "running the show". Instead, Soros. Or Zuckerberg.

    Never forget who owns the party. THEY are the ones making the decisions.

    1. Agreed. He is a better talking head than Biden, but even he follows a script (when he can, as shown by the gibberish he descends to when his teleprompter breaks).
      I don't know who is pulling the strings, but I doubt it's anyone widely known.

  9. My instinct is that they'd try to install Michelle Obama rather than Barack. Yes, they can split semantic hairs to argue constitutionality. Yes, they don't really follow the constitution much. But why take the chance if Michelle can be legally in office with Barack running things behind the scenes?

  10. you give obamy too much credit. he's just another talking head in the deep state, does what he's told, in control of nothing. the wef pulls the strings of all the puppets. ol joe won't go along with thermonuclear war so they threatened hunter, but joe didn't believe them so they trot out obamy. better get to digging.

  11. Attempts to install anyone as POTUS without running them through a national election will only destroy what little respect remains for government authority in this country. If you want us to turn into Bosnia, that's the direction to head. Assassinations of officials, neighbors pitted against neighbors, massive disruption of the economy, sporadic imposition of martial law met with guerrilla warfare against troops and leos, widespread criminality. Yep, that's how the cookie will crumble if anyone tries to "rule the country" through unorthodox means. Heck, at the rate we're going, even if they get into office through nominally orthodox means.

  12. We don’t need any damn darkies running shit.

    That is about the nicest way I can say it.

    I am just abou feed up with the shadow flags and trans and queers. Heads will roll

  13. peter, where would you go

    peter, where would you go?
    have seen this coming for decades but husband and i researched other countries and found none better
    the Biblical prophecies are here in our time
    there may be no escape
    you came here from there so you researched also
    what are you going to do?

  14. My gut feeling from watching the video of that Obamafied event is (1) that the Obamacare celebration with Obama turning up was a cover story event for him to be at the White House, likely for the real purpose of organising the finer details of how they hope 'change' (they can believe in) will be implemented.

    (2) Everyone knows it's over and is probably relieved that it's finally happening. It's not easy holding your breath and a straight face as political landmines go off. Biden was left alone in the room whilst the flunkies jostled for face time with Obama in the hope of receiving favor in the upcoming deck shuffle.

    The remaining question is if Biden is even functionally aware of the degree to which it's now over.

  15. Will not work. First step is Kamala resigning. Which gives you a 50 50 Senate and no way to get Obama confirmed as VP.
