(NaturalNews) Talk show star and best-selling author, Dr. Michael Savage, is warning that President Obama, on his way out of office, may be planning to sabotage President-elect Donald J. Trump, leaving an ultra-disruptive “poison pill” that would throw the incoming administration, and the country, into chaos.
In a recent issue of his free newsletter and also during a broadcast, Savage pointed out that the poison pill is likely already in place, in that most of Obama’s political appointees – especially in the Justice Department – are far-Left radicals that are responsible for much of what ails the country.
Even if Trump is able to keep 80 percent of his promises, Savage noted, there is no way to get the people Obama has placed in the federal bureaucracy out unless it’s done by executive decree (which Trump, as head of the Executive Branch and all its agencies and bureaus, most definitely has the authority to do).
One example Savage gave was Thomas Perez, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division – “one of the most fanatical leftists in the history of the world was put in there by Obama as a virtual poison pill.”
Draining the swamp will take time, and Trump will be subverted at every turn
Savage noted that Perez is implementing policies that “make businesses almost inoperable,” because “virtually everything is a civil rights violation to him.”
He asked: “How are we going to get rid of bureaucrats like that that are now running the federal government?”
Again, Trump as president will have broad constitutional authority over his own Executive Branch. But the problem is, there are so many of these radicals in government now, that it will be hard to root them out. Remember IRS official, Lois Lerner, who was accused of purposely sabotaging conservative organizations that applied for tax-free status prior to the 2012 election by delaying their applications – an action that prevented them from taking part in political action aimed at helping GOP nominee Mitt Romney and other Tea Party-affiliated candidates?
It turns out, however, that the targeting was built-in to a corrupt IRS system – one that was not found to be improper at all by Obama’s corrupt Justice Department.
The point that Savage’s example and these other examples prove, is that the federal bureaucracy is infested with careerists who have very different goals and political objectives than Trump will have. It’s like he’ll be walking through a pit of snakes every day he’s in Washington, D.C., though that is precisely the “swamp” he is focused on “draining.”
Obama is so radical he’s capable of anything
But there’s more. Obama is every bit as radical as those he has appointed, and there is every reason to believe he’ll be unleashing some bombshells of his own before he leaves office – now that he sees the end is near, and Trump, not Clinton, is next in line:
— As president, Obama has the power to pardon convicted felons (which he has already done). And he has promised more to come.
What if Obama would pardon every single inmate currently in federal prison? Again, he has the power to do it – and his most ardent supporters, which include the radical Leftists who continue to protest Trump’s election and threaten his life, would resoundingly approve, stupidly believing that “justice” will have been done (right before one of the most hardened of criminals knifes them in the back).
— It’s no secret that the border between the United States and Mexico has been virtually wide open for months, with U.S. Border Patrol agents being told to stand down and redeploy miles away – orders that can only come from the top.
What would happen if Obama sent orders to the USBP to stop interdicting illegal crossers altogether, as a way to “get even” with Trump over the latter’s promise to “build a wall?”
— Speaking of illegal immigration, Obama has not only relaxed border security policies, but he’s issued executive orders essentially granting many in the country illegal permanent residency, something federal courts have found unconstitutional.
But the laxity has energized hard-Left liberals in states like California, whose labor force depends heavily on illegal aliens. The Los Angeles Times reports that Trump’s pledge to deport illegals puts him at odds with the state, with elected officials there vowing to fight his administration on any plans to actually enforce U.S. immigration laws.
That in and of itself is problematic for a Trump administration, given that California produces the sixth-largest economy in the world, and is a vital source of revenue for the federal government.
— Finally, we have to remember that Obama said he’s not leaving Washington after he is replaced by Trump. The excuse he gave is that he wants to allow his daughters to finish high school, but that’s bogus. Obama wants to protect his “legacy,” so he is staying behind to remain a thorn in Trump’s side.
We can expect that any time Trump seeks to roll back an Obama initiative, executive order or law (think Obamacare), the corrupt journo-terrorists in the George Soros-funded “mainstream” media will rush to Obama to get his opinion on it – as if it is still relevant, and as if Trump, as president, is somehow not allowed to undo anything the Great Obama has created.
Presidents are powerful these days – more so than the founders ever wanted them to be – so, as Savage notes, expect the unexpected “poison pill” from this most radical of presidents.
