I've been writing about "Obama the bad guy" for many years. I was the first to name former President Barack Obama the head of the Obama crime family. I coined the phrase "Obamagate" to describe his reign of crimes against candidate and then President Donald J. Trump.
Obama's public persona was always a scam. I knew the real Obama -- way before anyone else caught on.
Take the Slate magazine column published days ago by a liberal hack and Obama apologist. He sounded the usual liberal talking points: There is no Obamagate. There is no scandal. It's a conservative conspiracy.
Then this liberal named names and called conservatives liars: Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and yours truly.
These liberal hacks must all be reading the same talking points. Only days before, I received a text from a liberal group urging Democratic voters to call their congressman and demand more free money. Then they named the enemies of Democrats who are standing in the way of more government aid -- President Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and yours truly.
Interesting. All I can say is, what an honor to be on that list. I've clearly just made All-Pro.
But the liberal hack at Slate got the timing wrong. He quoted my 2019 column about Obamagate. I've actually been on top of this story since 2016.
Throughout 2016 and 2017, I wrote dozens of newspaper columns about the deep-state conspiracy against Trump. In my newspaper column on Sept. 23, 2017, I finally gave it the name Obamagate. Because I knew every part of the scandal of spying on the Trump campaign had Obama's fingerprints all over it.
Obama was the capo di tutti of the Obama crime family. He gave the orders. He gave the approval. He was in the room as each crime was hatched.
How did I know before anyone else? Why did I believe Obama was capable of committing such high crimes and treason? Because of my personal history with Obama.
I was Obama's classmate at Columbia University, class of 1983. We were both pre-law and political science majors. I was also on the Libertarian presidential ticket in 2008 -- the first time in U.S. history that college classmates ran on opposing presidential tickets. What are the odds?
During the campaign, I was asked in hundreds of media interviews: "Were you two friends at Columbia University? What was Obama like?" I always answered honestly: "I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him. And I don't know a single classmate who ever met him either." I repeated this story hundreds of times.
At the time, I was also a regular guest on Fox News, where I branded Obama a radical socialist whose policies would ruin the U.S. economy, retard economic growth and kill millions of jobs. I was proved right. That must have made Obama even angrier.
I had clearly gotten under Obama's skin. Soon the IRS came knocking. I was targeted for destruction. It was a witch hunt, persecution and intimidation all in one.
It was the worst IRS attack any tax lawyer I spoke to had ever heard about. They all agreed that I was on the president's enemies list.
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch took my case, and together, over a two-year period, we forced the IRS to hand over my personal tax files. This was a political persecution based on my conservative political beliefs. The proof was written all over my files.
Who do you think ordered it?
President Obama clearly hated my guts because I had embarrassed him repeatedly in the national media. So, he decided to use the power of government to destroy me. That's a crime, by the way.
If Obama hated me that much, think about how he must have felt about famous billionaire celebrity Donald Trump, who had questioned whether Obama is even an American citizen. Trump had tortured Obama in the national media. Then Trump was about to succeed him as president with a promise to erase everything he accomplished.
That's how I knew.
If Obama sent a government agency after his college classmate Wayne Root, think about what he'd be willing to do to Donald Trump. The answer is anything and everything: spying; unmasking; leaking; framing Trump and his top advisors; and, eventually, in desperation after all else failed, a full-blown coup.
It was all Obama. It was always Obama.
The real Obama is nothing like his public persona. The real Obama is a ruthless bad guy. I should know. I was the first to experience the crimes of Barack Obama -- up close and personal.
