Think Obama’s Gone? Think Again — Ex-Pres Considering Career in Digital Propaganda

With the mainstream media pushing the false narrative of “fake news” acting as a pox on society, it may come as no surprise to some that President Barack H. Obama is reportedly getting into the news business. Yes, that’s right. Sources say the soon to be former president is considering starting his own media company, which could resemble something like a liberal version of Alex Jones, for example.

So, could it be that the mainstream media is in the tank for Obama, helping him launch his new career in media, by recklessly driving home a false narrative on the American people that their alternative news sources simply cannot be trusted? Maybe. But no one appears to be holding their breath that the outgoing president will follow the example of his predecessor, George W. Bush, from whom the public has heard very little over the last eight years — outside of random appearances during which he laughs at murdered police officers’ funerals.

The White House communications director Jen Psaki denied the rumors, telling Policy.Mic in a statement, “While the president will remain actively engaged in inspiring young people and he is interested in the changing ways people consume information, he has no plans to get into the media business after he leaves office.”

But such a denial wouldn’t be the first time the White House purposefully launched misinformation into the world wide web for political purposes. After all, it was the Obama administration’s Ben Rhodes who bragged about creating an “echo chamber” of young, unwitting journalists to write what the administration wanted to propagate.

With highly respected individuals like Ben Stein, and Charles Krauthammer, both calling Obama a “narcissist,” it would be no surprise to many that the president’s desire to hear himself speak would be satiated within his own media empire. Just picture a website like www.obama.com. It’s available, for a price, and if acquired by the president, who knows, maybe it would become a reality. Oprah has hers (www.oprah.com), why not a former president?

Policy.Mic accurately reported in the run-up to Election Day, mainstream media floated rumors that President-elect Donald Trump would create his own media network if he lost the election. Remember that? Now those rumors are a distant memory, and Trump’s career trajectory has gone off on a tangent. Who better to pick up the mantle and start a new network than the nation’s first black president?

The Rolling Stone magazine first dropped a hint that he’ll be creating his own network. The president said,  “I’ll spend time…writing a book, and I’m gonna be organizing my presidential center, which is gonna be focused on precisely this issue of how do we train and empower the next generation of leadership. How do we rethink our storytelling, the messaging and the use of technology and digital media, so that we can make a persuasive case across the country? And not just in San Francisco or Manhattan but everywhere, about why climate change matters or why issues of economic inequality have to be addressed.” From that statement alone, one could deduce that the president has big plans in media.

Obama is making no promises he’ll keep quiet after he leaves. In a recent visit to Peru, the sitting U.S. president told reporters, when asked if he’d follow the model set by his predecessor to stay quiet, “If there are issues that have less to do with the specifics of some legislative proposal or battle or go to core questions about our values and ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, I’ll examine it when it comes.” For all free thinkers everywhere, the thought of an Obama media network may send shivers down one’s spine. Just when you think you’re getting rid of him, here he comes again.

    With the UN now taking control of the internet, maybe Obama will be the nightly news anchor on the only program offered and approved for ‘we the cattle.’

  • Mike Menlo

    He should just shut the hell up, and go away. FAR away. Actually hope we expose him for the lying criminal he is and put him in Gitmo. His tenure may be the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on us. Absolutely despicable. A true scumbag. Just seeing or hearing (if I can’t reach the remote in time) the sickening POS makes my skin crawl.

    Anyone that would believe a scrap that comes from this creature is dumber than a stump. All this man has done is lie lie lie, while serving up Americans to oligarchs and being the poster child for multiple wars of choice killing innocents in the millions.

    ” How do we rethink our storytellin” Translated – “How do we get people to write the history that I want them to read about.” Where Obama is concerned, the truth has never been an obstacle. He tramples on the truth the same way the rest of us walk across a yard of fallen leaves.

  • Army Vet 4444

    With the number of crimes that Obama has committed, it would be with great wisdom for him to find a very quiet corner of this planet, and hope it never gets noticed.

  • Kyrie

    Does anyone remember the cash for clunkers flop or the Solyndra bankruptcy? Obozo would do well to join the rest of the media circus peddling ‘policy solutions’ that caused the problems they attempt to solve in the first place.

  • Connie Rogers

    it would be great if he moved to dubai & stayed after he is arrested & while he is awaiting trial for crimes against America – then we can cut off funding to him & all the obama’s peckerheads that are supposedly entitled to lifetime paydays for their service… well, that or perhaps he kills over from a massive heart attack – but I think you’d have to have a heart for that work & clearly he does not!!!

    Wow, such venom for one of the better presidents in recent history. If one takes an objective view on our ex-presidents, a few of them stand out, for doing what they thought was the right thing to do, and they were all hated for it.
    President Ford was vilified for pardoning Nixon, and yet avoiding further conflict, it was probably the right thing to do, and he knew he would be hated for it. Ford didn’t even want to the POTUS, as Speaker of the House was his ideal position.
    President Carter was vilified for approving the failed Embassy Staff Rescue, when a sandstorm caused the helicopter crash. Members of Bush1’s Campaign staff negotiated with the Iranians in Paris, to delay to release of the Hostages, in exchange for Parts for the Iranian Military’s American made Aircraft, via Iran/Contra. Carter also attempted to remove the corrupt members of Congress, including fellow Democrats, which is why his party threw him under a bus.
    President Obama attempted to close GITMO, but couldn’t get Congress to fund this. Members of the GOP went so far as attempting to block everything he did, to not only make him a one term president, but to make him the last non-white president. His most controversial actions were the ACA & continuing the use of Drones. While the ACA has issues, it did allow people like myself to get medical treatment for a “pre-existing condition”, which in my case was almost being killed by a drunk hit and run driver, when I was an undergraduate. As for the use of drones, this policy was somewhat necessary, since the nation’s aircraft would require significant overhaul if they continued to be flown, due to the hours from Bush2’s wars.
    Americans have an unrealistic view of the power of the presidency, as the president is only powerful with congress’s approval. Presidents do not set every policy they ware blamed for, as the NSA, CIA & FBI all heavily influence their actions. So if they tell the president to drone Mr. X in Yemen, they approve it, if they believe the argument that Mr. X is a terrorist. The catch is that no American sees firsthand that pickup truck of dead civilians, which are accidentally killed by a drone operator’s mistake. But we also don’t know what Mr. X’s group was planning, as releasing that information would result in a dead CIA Asset.
    Take the time to compare past president’s successes and failures. Keep in mind that all have done that they thought was best, except for Senile Reagan. Führer Trump is a blatant Sociopath, and will go down in history, as the worst president in recent history, because of the nature of his character. You will soon be wishing that we still had Obama, when Führer Trump starts transforming the USA into an Oligarchy like Russia Federation.
