Summary of eRumor:

Charles Krauthammer has penned a column under the headline, The Enemy Among Us, about President Obamas use of a group called Organizing for Action (OFA) to advance his political agenda after leaving the White House.

The Truth:

We couldnt track down the author of the The Enemy Among Us commentary, but it was not written by conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer or published by the New York Post.

The column first surfaced in discussion forums and on social media in February 2017. At the time, it was attributed to the New York Post, but no author was listed. A quick read of those early versions reveals that the column wasnt published in the New York Post but it cited and was largely based on a commentary written by Post columnistPaul Sperry under the headline, How Obama Is Scheming to Sabotage Trumps Presidency.

Sperry argues in the column that Organizing for Action (OFA), a 501c4 nonprofit group derived from Obamas reelection campaign that works to organize and mobilize support for the former presidents agenda, has undermined President Trump by planning protests and coordinating opposition to Trumps presidential agenda.

The Enemy Among Us has a similar premise, but it goes a step forward by arguing that Obama is using OFA to not only undermine Trumps presidency but to undermine America. Some version even reference a coming civil war:

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracyestablished over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history,suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group calledOrganizing for Action (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that ourcurrent presidents administration is trying to do. This organizationgoes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy ourway of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and theprocesses established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceedthen we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries arerun. What good is it to have an established government if it is not goingto be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked overthe decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, howmuch damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out inAmerica!

The Enemy Among Us column was first attributed to Charles Krauthammer by Before Its News, a website that publishes user-generated (and conspiracy-minded) commentaries with no editing or fact-checking, on October 12, 2017. However, the commentary cant be found at places where Krauthammers work regularly appears, including Fox News, the National Review and the Washington Post.

And weve seen columns inaccurately attributed to Charles Krauthammerbefore. Because hes a Pulitzer Prize winning columnist and a household name in conservative circles, Krauthammers name has been falsely used to help raise the visibility of essays and commentaries like this one in the past.The idea is that people give more weight to a column by Krauthammer, a well-known conservative thinker, than to a column by somebody theyve never heard of. That appears to be the case here. Krauthammer didnt write The Enemy Among Us.

The Enemy Amongst Us!!

When Krauthammer provides his opinion and facts, hes definitelysomeone to listen to!

Krauthammer is about the best and brightest journalist and politicalanalyst we have, in my opinion. His words of warning in the belowmessage should be taken seriously and spread throughout the countryso as many of our citizens as possible are made aware of what ishappening right under our noses!An article from the New York Post:

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracyestablished over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history,suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group calledOrganizing for Action (OFA).OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that ourcurrent presidents administration is trying to do. This organizationgoes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy ourway of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and theprocesses established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceedthen we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries arerun. What good is it to have an established government if it is not goingto be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked overthe decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, howmuch damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out inAmerica!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through communityorganizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of hisadministrations top dogs over to Organizing for Action.OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of theresistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing acrossAmerica, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for thisrevolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for progressive change.Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexualequality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-presidents message from theshadows: Organizing is the building block of everything great we haveaccomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change intheir communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines.Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond.OFAs website says it obtained its digital assets from the ex-presidents re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. Inshort, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting andtearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, The OFA will fightPresident Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles fromthe White House.

Sperry writes that, The ex-president is setting up a shadowgovernment to sabotage the Trump administration through a network ofnon-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40million) and has some 250 offices nationwide.

The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and hiswife will oversee the operation from their home/office in WashingtonDC.

Think about how this works. For example: Trump issues an immigrationexecutive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions whereactivist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest atairports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springsto action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up withsocial media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-presidents signal that he is heartened by the protests.If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy thefoundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others willknow what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are socompliant. We are becoming a PERFECT TARGET for our enemy!
