Barack Obama has not left the political arena since the end of his Presidency.
His Deep State has been actively involved in a silent coup against Donald Trump.
Now he’s taking it one step further with a plan that could end the Republican Party for good.
Democrats are laser focused on the 2020 redistricting battle.
Their goal is to win back control over the Governor mansions and state legislatures in 2018 and set the stage for Democrats to control the process by which state house and congressional district lines are drawn.
When the GOP wiped out the Democrats in the 2010 midterms, the underreported aspect of the victory was the GOP’s dominance in state level races.
The GOP gained control of six governorships and won 680 state house seats across America.
This allowed them to draw the political map for the next decade.
The GOP’s state house majorities also allowed them to thwart Obama’s agenda.
GOP state legislatures blocked Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, gun control, and enacted pro-life policies.
Democrats fumed as the GOP state houses also passed constitutional carry and right to work laws.
Now Obama is scheming to reverse all these conservative gains.
He has allied himself with a new group whose sole focus is on the redistricting process.
And they are having waves of early success.
“The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, the group backed by former President Barack Obama and chaired by former Attorney General Eric Holder to make Democrats competitive in redistricting fights, will finish July reporting $10.8 million, according to its financial filings.
That money is split between its various entities: a federal PAC, plus 501c3 and 501c4 entities that house much of its structural work. Most of the money comes from high dollar donors, though the NDRC says that there was a total of 10,000 people who gave overall, with a rush of small donors after the election when the group was officially formed.
Mega-donors were key: Chicago’s Fred Eychaner and Florida’s Donald Sussman gave $500,000 each, while Jon Stryker gave $200,000. Director J.J. Abrams and his wife, actress Katie McGrath, gave $125,000 each.
Much of the fundraising was through five briefings for donors conducted by Holder, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Washington, but an event that Obama headlined in Washington earlier this month gave the efforts a significant boost.
Democrats are hoping that the group will be able to coordinate efforts between activists and interest groups in prioritized state legislative and governor’s races for the next round of redistricting after the 2020 census, as well as being the home of legal challenges on the state level and at the Supreme Court. That’s an enormous array of ambitious activities, in which they’ll be going up against well-funded interests across the country. In most states, it is expected to be a major uphill battle to change the balance of power that could change the maps.”
If Democrats can control the 2020 redistricting, they can undercut the Trump administration – and future GOP Presidents – from the state level.
It would also allow them to draw a map that grants them control over Congress for at least a decade.
Liberals could wipe out the GOP.
Obama’s latest scheme is a grave threat to the GOP and it’s one all conservatives should take seriously.
