Barack Obama Is Using Susan Rice

Evidence continues to emerge that America is being controlled by a shadow president.

The current presidential administration is providing Barack Obama with an unprecedented opportunity to fundamentally transform America into a socialist dictatorship, without getting blamed for it.

In 2008, Obama told supporters that they needed to reduce their standard of living. “We can’t drive our suvs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes at 72 degrees all the time whether we are living in the desert or living in the tundra and just expect that every other country will say, OK, you guys, go ahead and keep on using 25 percent of the world’s energy even though you only account for 3 percent of the world’s population,” he said. This was a way of saying that he thought the government should take control of even more aspects of Americans’ everyday lives.

While in office, Obama pushed through one such change after another, like Obamacare—and the people had an idea of whom to hold responsible. Now he is pushing through even more radical changes, but staying almost completely out of the headlines. He instead uses operatives like Jake Sullivan, Kamala Harris and Susan Rice to enact his agenda, while Joe Biden sits in the White House and takes the blame for the systematic destruction of the American economy.

Before Biden took the oath of office, Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell warned that Rice would be the “shadow president” that Obama would use to manage Biden. Time has proved this warning correct. During Obama’s first and second terms as United States president, Rice served as ambassador to the United Nations and as Obama’s national security adviser. Today, she works for Joe Biden as director of the Domestic Policy Council, but Politico says she is more than a White House policy director: She is the “power broker.”

“As director of the Domestic Policy Council, Rice leads a team of roughly a dozen staffers examining ways to push through modest gun reforms should Congress again falter, and explore new executive orders even if lawmakers succeed,” stated Politico. “Her ascendance to the role of point person on guns marks the latest chunk of policy turf over which she has claimed jurisdiction, joining a sprawling portfolio that stretches from policing and racial justice to student loan debt, immigration and health-care policy, including a prime piece of protecting abortion rights. The scope of her fiefdom is as remarkable as how she managed to secure it. Having eschewed a public-facing role, Rice has relied on a combination of internal maneuvering and bureaucratic know-how to place herself at the nerve center of some of the fiercest debates roiling Washington. And she’s further cemented her status with the president in the process.”

Obama has said before that his biggest regret as president was failing to enact further restrictions on gun ownership. Now this issue is handled by Rice. Rice was one of the first high-profile foreign-policy experts to sign on to Obama’s campaign 14 years ago. Obama trusts Rice because, as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “There’s no one who is better at bringing stakeholders to the table to drive progress.”

While Biden may seem senile and incompetent, the regime bearing his name is implementing the intentionally destructive agenda of Obama.

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last year that Barack Obama and Joe Biden “are not just president and vice president. They are friends, and they consult and talk about a range of issues.” She did not know precisely how many times these two men have spoken since Inauguration Day, but mentioned that “our teams are in regular touch about a range of issues.” That last statement is exceptionally revealing!

Obama, then, has a whole team of people working for him that are distinct from Joe Biden’s team. What is his team? Is it like a second White House staff? Is it a “shadow government” that controls the real government? Given Biden’s declining mental and physical health, it is not a stretch to say that Obama wields more influence in the Biden administration than Biden himself. And even mainstream publications like the Hill report that Rice holds “a quiet but powerful perch at the White House.”

This is the type of arrangement Obama told comedian Stephen Colbert he wanted after the election steal of 2020. “People would ask me, knowing what you know now, do you wish you had a third term?” Obama said. “And I used to say, if I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a front man or a front woman, and they had an earpiece in, and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, and I could sort of deliver the lines but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I would be fine with that because I found the work fascinating.”

People will say that’s a joke for a comedian, but do you think Obama hasn’t been manipulating things in the five years since he left office? Do you think there is a reason why he is basically the first president in history to stay in Washington, D.C., after leaving office? (A century ago, Woodrow Wilson did the same thing, but presumably for health reasons: He died three years later.) Biden and Harris are speaking the lines, but Obama and his team are the ones deciding them. They are using people like Rice to stay out of view while they hijack the government.

Remember, Obama said before he was elected in 2008 that he was on the verge of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Daniel 8:9-12 describe an evil spiritual force to whom “an host was given … by reason of transgression [that is, God permits this because of the sins of the people], and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.”

Strong’s Concordance defines “host” as a mass of persons, especially one organized for war. It can refer to an army of demons, angels, or men. Here it refers to demons and men who help cast truth to the ground.

As my father, Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry, explains in America Under Attack, Obama is a modern type of Antiochus Epiphanes, a wicked king who obtained power through lies. He then betrayed the people of Judah, who were under his rule, slaughtered them, desecrated the temple in Jerusalem, and tried to wipe out their religion itself.

Although news about Obama went mostly silent after he left office, we at the Philadelphia Trumpet have kept a close eye on him. In the February 2021 issue, my father wrote that Obama was “at the epicenter of the election crisis and the radical left’s effort to prevent Donald Trump from being reelected!” He based his analysis on 2 Kings 14:23-29, which describe a Satan-led movement in the end time to “blot out the name of Israel from under heaven,” and Daniel 8:12, which exposes an end-time Antiochus who “cast down the truth to the ground.”

We are currently getting a clear look at the agenda of Antiochus. Radical leftists have taken off the mask, and God is exposing their total corruption. The nation-destroying problems afflicting America are not the result of a senile president. They are the successes of a malevolent shadow president running the Biden administration from behind the scenes!
