The True Picture of the Real Obamas You Were Never Supposed To See
So much for the Jan. 20,  2017, worldwide ‘goodwill’ photos of Barack and Michelle Obama on Donald Trump Inauguration Day which time proved to be a well orchestrated hoax on unsuspecting watching masses.

Go have another look at the photos, and even though we now know that the Obamas went on to rake in millions of dollars after leaving office, thank God that their closest connection to the White House is only as “Resistance” leaders hiding in a mansion a few blocks away between speaking engagements and book signings.

In the photos, Barack and Michelle are depicted civilly and dutifully making a supposedly respected last farewell to newly sworn-in President Trump and First Lady Melania before boarding a waiting chopper taking them to an extended holiday in California and the Caribbean.


The millions watching televised clips of the Inauguration getting ready to don pink pussy caps for the next day’s Big Women’s Day march, must have consoled themselves by thinking “protocol makes its own demands”.

How many knew that just as the election of Donald Trump wasn’t supposed to happen, his Inauguration wasn’t supposed to happen, and that the Obama administration was working on scrapping the historic Inauguration mere hours before it took place.

Less than 24 hours before the Trump Inauguration, this was the message sent out to the Deep State from Naz Durakoglu, the former senior advisor to the assistant secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs: “We made the deadline! Thank you everyone for what was truly a Department-wide effort!’

The senior advisor was,  like the many Deep State traitors included on the email string, counting scrawny chickens before they hatched—both back then and even now.

How the Obamas must have been secretly seething as they bid farewell to the Trumps and knowing they would now have to continue their plot to bring down the Trump presidency from the luxury of Sir Richard Branson’s private island.

Though no major media ever followed up on it, Obama was in on the Steele dirty dossier from the get-go.  How is it even possible that the bed on which Moscow prostitutes prostitutes performed their “golden shower” routines was one originally slept in by Barack and Michelle Obama?!

Why is it that after all this time,  no one’s never heard either Obama denying that they had never slept in that bed?

Operation Crossfire Hurricane whose strategy surfaced during the 2016 presidential election and continued well into Trump’s presidency, advancing the Russians-stole-the-election scandal, should be renamed ‘Operation Fall on Their Face’.

Thanks to Judicial Watch Tom Fitton for catching the conspirators red-handed: (Judicial Watch, Dec. 14, 2018)

“Judicial Watch today released two sets of heavily redacted State Department documents, 38 pages and 48 pages, showing classified information was researched and disseminated to multiple U.S. Senators by the Obama administration immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The documents reveal that among those receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN).

“Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a June 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department after it failed to respond to a February 2018 request seeking records of the Obama State Department’s last-minute efforts to share classified information about Russia election interference issues with Democratic Senator Ben Cardin (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-01381)).

“The documents reveal the Obama State Department urgently gathering classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office:

  • In a Thursday, January 5, 2017, email chain then-State Department Congressional Advisor Hera Abassi indicates that then-Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland’s bureau was attempting to get Russian investigation related documents to the office of Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) office as quickly as possible. (In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

In the email, with the subject line “For Immediate Review—Call Sheet for S Call with Senator Warner,” Abassi writes:

“I told Cardin’s folks…that the process is long. Can we ensure that there are no holdups on our end?”

“Minutes later, Abassi confirms that Nuland was fully aware of the information that the State Department was providing to members of Congress alleging Russia interference information:

“This is definitely on EUR A/S radar!”

  • Leaving no doubt that the State Department officials knew they were transmitting classified information, in a Wednesday, January 18, 2017, email with the subject line “Cables/M,” Former Foreign Service Officer Kerem Bilge writes to State Department Congressional advisor Hilary Johnson and others: “Highest class is SECRET/NOFORN.”

Johnson replies:

“FYI—so we can keep the SECRET/NOFORN header, and should declassify it 25 years from tomorrow.

“I forwarded the fully cleared version to the two of you on the high side [Editor’s Note: “high side” is State Department term for high security classification system], but let me know if there’s anything else you need from me on this.

“Note: we’ll need to make sure there is someone in Senate security tomorrow who can accept these.”

  • On Wednesday, January 18, 2017, Johnson confirms that classified documents were sent to Senator Corker in addition to Senator Cardin. “Flagging that I sent you a high side request for clearance of the draft transmittal letter to send documents to Senators Corker and Cardin.”

“Additionally, involved in providing classified information to members of the Senate was Naz Durakoglu, Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs. In an email dated Thursday, January 19, 2017, with the subject line “Signed, sealed, delivered” Durakoglu apparently confirms that Obama State Department officials were eager to provide the classified material before Trump was sworn into office: “We made the deadline!” Durakoglu states [Emphasis added] “Thank you everyone for what was truly a Department-wide effort!”

“President Trump was inaugurated less than 24 hours later.

  • In a Wednesday, January 18, 2017 email, Naz Durakoglu signed off on the document transmittal letter on behalf of her bureau. This letter accompanied “the documents to Senator Corker and Cardin”
  • In a Thursday, January 19, 2017 email, Durakoglu appears to confirm that she is who carried the documents from the State Department to Capitol Hill. She states, “I will be carrying over the cables to the Hill.”


“These documents show remarkable evidence of the non-stop, unethical effort in the Obama State Department to gather and send its own dossier of classified information on Russia in an effort to discredit the incoming Trump administration,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“According to a March 2017 report in the Baltimore Sun:Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin received classified information about Russia’s involvement in elections when the Obama administration was attempting to disseminate that material widely across the government in order to aid in future investigations, according to a report Wednesday…Obama officials were concerned, according to the report [in The New York Times], that the Trump administration would cover up intelligence once power changed hands.”

“Judicial Watch has confirmed through previously obtained State Department documents that the Obama State Department did, in fact, provide classified documents to Senator Cardin. The documents also show Russian political interference in elections and politics in countries across Europe. In a section of the documents provided to Cardin titled “Political Parties” and marked as sensitive, Russia reportedly sought to foster relationships with groups in Germany, Austria, and France, to include paying members to travel to conferences in Crimea and Donbas “where they stoutly defend Russian policy.”

“The following section titled “Pro-Kremlin NGOs and Think Tanks,” also marked as sensitive, discusses the Russian government funded Caucasus Research Network, which helped to spread anti-EU and NATO reports throughout the region. Also discussed is the Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative, which was founded by Natalia Veselnitskaya. The Initiative was reportedly “working to erode support for the Magnitsky Act (which imposes sanctions on…gross human rights violations). The organization screened an anti-Magnitsky film at Washington’s Newseum in June.”


“The Magnitsky Act attracted public attention earlier this year when it was reported Veselnitskaya obtained a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. with the purpose of seeking to undermine the act. It was reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to repeal the act at least in part because it targeted top Russian officials who had committed human rights violations and were the beneficiaries of a $230-million tax fraud that Magnitsky exposed.”

“Close observers know that the Operation Crossfire Hurricane strategy surfaced during the 2016 presidential election and continued well into Trump’s presidency, with General Michael Flynn getting snared in a Peter Strzok/Sally Yates ambush play in the early days of the Trump White House. Now, Team Obama’s documented effort to cook up the Russia story before Trump’s inauguration emboldens a narrative already proved by text messages (presented below) involving Obama official James Clapper: the Obama people actually thought they could stop Trump from getting sworn in. (BigLeaguePolitics, Dec. 16, 2018)

To Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland’s joyful: “This is definitely on EUR/AS radar!”, the masses can now joyfully respond, “You’re now on OUR radar!”

And to Former Foreign Service Officer Kerem Bilge’s reply to State Department Congressional advisor Hilary Johnson and others:

“FYI—so we can keep the SECRET/NOFORN header, and should declassify it 25 years from tomorrow.”

WRONG!  Judicial Watch ‘declassified’ it two years less a month in 2018.

The play-the-truth—down mainstream and social media notwithstanding, Judicial Watch’s courageous Tom Fitton may have given the Western World its best Christmas present ever, the truth about how Obama and Company tried to prevent the duly elected Donald Trump from ever being inaugurated.
