Chapter 5: Barack Obama and the Twitter Files


In 2013, when I first wrote America Under Attack, people were beginning to wonder what was happening to the United States. By now, many realize that its principles, identity, history and future are indeed under attack. Barack Obama worked and is still working to destroy America as a constitutional republic. Yet even at this late stage, almost no one is willing to name the man leading this attack!

One of the few authors who traces America’s self-destruction back to its perpetrator is Mark Bradman, who goes by the name Sundance, posting on the blog Conservative Treehouse. He has shown how obvious it is that Obama is the power behind the current Joe Biden regime.

‘The One’

The Twitter Files are a series of revelations released beginning in December 2022 by new Twitter owner Elon Musk and a number of journalists he has worked with. They show the secret communications of radical leftists at Twitter and in the government to control people in America and elsewhere by controlling the information they see.

Twitter Files 8.0 contained this key statement from journalist Lee Fang about the secret communications that he was provided and published: “The searches were carried out by a Twitter attorney, so what I saw could be limited.”

“There’s no ‘could be’ in that statement,” Bradman wrote. “The searches were limited, specifically time limited, putting all of the scrutiny on the timeline when Donald Trump was in office. … [I]t’s public record [that] the use of Twitter and Facebook as a tool to advance U.S. foreign policy began during the Obama administration. There are dozens of mainstream press accounts of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton reaching out to Twitter and Facebook for support during the ’11/’12 Arab Spring. This is not controversial; it happened” (Dec. 20, 2022).

Twitter began in 2006, became popular in 2007, and was an enormously powerful tool for controlling foreign policy and for controlling Americans by 2017 when Donald Trump was inaugurated president. What happened in between? The 2009–2017 presidency of Barack Obama! Yet this batch of Twitter Files and apparently all the others so far have specifically avoided revealing what happened during those years!

“Let me be very, very clear,” Bradman wrote. “This release of information was filtered to avoid revealing that President Obama was the originator of this activity. … Barack Obama established the partnership between government and social media, and within this release, Twitter is protecting Barack Obama.

“This release is so over-the-top-obvious in its intent to protect the Obama legacy that the nature of the [Department of State]/[Department of Defense] admissions within it become almost secondary” (ibid).

When Twitter Files 8.0 was released, people mostly talked about how Twitter worked with the United States government to spread propaganda. But what happened between 2009 and 2017 at Obama’s Department of State, Department of Defense and other government agencies? This is an obvious question with a clear answer, yet few will even ask it!

Musk has been responsible for revealing large amounts of important information through the Twitter Files and even fired employees, such as Twitter counsel and former fbi general counsel Jim Baker, who tried to block the information from getting out. Yet he and the current Twitter staff have still not revealed what Barack Obama did! If something as clear and as important as that continues to be kept secret, it shows that these Twitter Files, as much as they reveal, are still failing to fully expose the whole truth! To pull a shroud over the man who started all this deceit, deception, theft and lying leaves the most important part of the story untold! In fact, it’s not an accurate report. It’s tainted. Elon Musk is allowing people to stop the searches at 2017 and not give us the big picture, which has to include Obama. He hasn’t done that, and I doubt that he will. Still, he has given us enough information that we can figure out the big picture.

Twitter Files 8.0 “reveals that Twitter officers are carefully curating information to protect their interests,” Bradman wrote. “When information is curated to protect political interests, it puts a question mark behind all prior releases. …

“Twitter is trying to protect President Obama because, beyond the ideological alignment, the monopolistic social media system—a partnership between the U.S. government and Big Tech—was essentially designed as a purposeful, oligarchal system. As long as each platform oligarch retains the code of omertà, the system survives” (ibid). That code of silence and noncompliance with authorities and outsiders is what is used in the mafia!

“Remaining in alignment with the group is why Twitter lawyers carefully filtered out the trail to former President Barack Obama. The One is always protected.” That is a strong statement. Bradman can see that radical-leftist elites are not just protecting each other, they are specifically protecting “the One.” He can see that the elites look to, and in some respects worship, Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is still “the One” leading an effort to blot out what America has been, especially anything that remains of its unique founding and its history with God.


The Twitter Files haven’t directly exposed Barack Obama, but they have directly exposed an enormous amount of lawlessness among government officials across several federal agencies. And how have the radical elites responded?

fbi leaders, rather than refuting the allegations, simply smeared the messenger. In an official statement they said: “The men and women of the fbi work every day to protect the American public. It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency” (Dec. 21, 2022).

Those Twitter Files show the fbi’s direct communications with Twitter—and the fbi calls it “misinformation” and those who share it “conspiracy theorists”! That is a satanic lie! They just say it and you’re supposed to believe it. They are saying, That’s our will, and anyone who doesn’t accept it is crazy!

These federal agents insist that they are “trying to serve the American people”—when in reality they are actively crushing their freedom of speech and blotting out their constitutional rights! What a diabolical lie!

Twitter Files 9.0 reporter Matt Taibbi wrote, “Twitter had so much contact with so many agencies that executives lost track. Is today the dod and tomorrow the fbi? Is it the weekly call or the monthly meeting? It was dizzying” (Dec. 24, 2022).

Big Tech has become a dominant force in America and, as we will see, elsewhere in the world. This is not an accident or the result of the free market. Big Techespecially Big Tech controlled by radicals who are controlled by Obamahas become an active, powerful tool to intentionally destroy governments, including America’s!

By controlling information, these companies are controlling outcomes—such as elections—while providing, as Bradman wrote, “the illusion of freedom” (Dec. 25, 2022).

One of the few other writers to pinpoint Obama’s role has been Lee Smith. He wrote in the Tablet: “[T]he fbi’s penetration of Twitter constituted just one part of a much larger intelligence operation—one in which the bureau offshored the machinery it used to interfere in the 2016 election and embedded it within the private sector” (Tablet, Jan. 5, 2023). He quoted former State Department official Mike Benz, who said that “cybersecurity became cybercensorship.” Smith continued: “[T]he spy services saw social media as a surveillance tool, like fisa.”

Smith concluded: “A whole-of-society industry designed to shape elections and censor, propagandize and spy on Americans was never simply a weapon to harm Donald Trump. It was designed to replace the republic.”

What is happening in America right now is treason, treason, treason! Even worse, it is an attempt to blot out the name of Israel.


When Obama prepared to leave the White House in 2016, he thought he would be leaving it to another radical liberal, Hillary Clinton, and continue exerting his power. Then Americans shocked the world by voting in Donald Trump, who promised to undo what Obama had done.

Eleven days later, something meaningful occurred. Obama was in Peru at an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference and pulled Facebook ceo Mark Zuckerberg aside. He criticized him severely for not doing more to keep “Russian disinformation” off Facebook. That accusation was a lie: Russian disinformation did nothing to get Trump elected. Obama was telling Zuckerberg he should have found a way to help stop Trump, like Twitter ultimately did in 2020.

Zuckerberg seems to have gotten the message. He spent more than $400 million as part of the successful effort to oust Trump in 2020.

Consider the power Barack Obama wields! Zuckerberg is one of the world’s top ceos and wealthiest men, yet he is fiercely afraid of Obama! Such men, with all their money and power, are not actually free. They must be dedicated and loyal to Obama—or else! They are not working with Obama; he controls them.

With control of the mainstream media, Barack Obama has monstrous influence. With all those people helping him in his agenda, you see that America has become some kind of tyranny—no longer a democratic republic. They try to convince people they are fighting for freedom—while pushing the nation into tyranny!

‘Egypt Was the Test’

Remember the 2010–2012 Arab Spring uprisings. Egypt was a strong ally of America in the Middle East. It had also enjoyed good relations with the Jewish nation, Israel, for more than 30 years. Meanwhile, Iran was becoming a more and more dangerous threat: pursuing a policy of Islamic terrorism, threatening oil shipments, and obtaining nuclear weapons. The U.S., Egypt, Israel and other nations all wanted to contain that threat.

Then Barack Obama was elected president. Within five months of taking office, he traveled to Cairo, Egypt, to give a major speech. In it, he altered America’s stance toward Islamism, treated Israel’s prime minister disgracefully, and gave Iran’s terrorist-sponsoring regime a path not only to remain in power over Iranians (many of whom were protesting against the regime) but also to obtain nuclear weapons!

The U.S. and Israel had been relying on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to help keep the Middle East from deteriorating. He was an effective leader and a friend of Israel, like his predecessor, the great Anwar Sadat. But Obama’s plan was, in the words of his top spy John Brennan, to make Mubarak “toast.”

In 2011, Egyptians were protesting against Mubarak’s regime, agitating for a better government. Mubarak sought to hold onto power. But then Barack Obama phoned him. After that conversation, Mubarak decided to give up.

Obama was clearing a U.S. ally out of the way so the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood could seize Egypt. And he didn’t stop at making a phone call.

“The Obama administration first created the public-private partnership with Twitter and Facebook to support the ‘Arab Spring’ uprising,” Bradman wrote (Dec. 20, 2022).

Here is something that happened between 2009 and 2017! Here is something we should be seeing Twitter Files about. The tyranny that has seized America has interfered in politics and overthrown leaders before! Who helped overthrow Mubarak in 2011 to help enemies of the U.S.? Who stole the U.S. presidential election in 2020 to help enemies of the U.S.? This power can destroy nations by controlling information, technology and uprisings.

Social media proved to be decisive in Egypt’s protests, as well as those of several other Middle Eastern states. As Saleem Kassim wrote for Mic back in 2012, “Being capable of sharing an immense amount of uncensored and accurate information throughout social networking sites has contributed to the cause of many Arab Spring activists. Through social networking sites, Arab Spring activists have not only gained the power to overthrow powerful dictatorship, but also helped Arab civilians become aware of the underground communities that exist and are made up of their brothers and others willing to listen to their stories” (July 3, 2012). He described how protests were organized and crowds mobilized through these tools, and he quoted one Egyptian activist saying, “We use Facebook to schedule the protests, Twitter to coordinate, and YouTube to tell the world.”

In 2011, the Dubai School of Government released an Arab Social Media Report whose findings, in the words of the National, “give empirical heft to the conventional wisdom that Facebook and Twitter abetted if not enabled the historic region-wide uprisings of early 2011” (June 5, 2011). The National reported, “Nearly 9 in 10 Egyptians and Tunisians surveyed in March said they were using Facebook to organize protests or spread awareness about them. All but one of the protests called for on Facebook ended up coming to life on the streets” (ibid).

The Atlantic reported that social media fulfilled two purposes in these uprisings: “First, Facebook and elsewhere online is where people saw and shared horrifying videos and photographs of state brutality that inspired them to rebel. Second, these sites are where people found out the basic logistics of the protests—where to go and when to show up” (Sept. 3, 2011).

All this was abetted by the Obama State Department! These Big Tech powers can sit over here encouraging “democracy and freedom” while stirring up revolt in the Middle East and literally change the course of history! And they were being directed to do so by Barack Obama.

“As a consequence, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was the first elected official to be taken out by former President Obama’s deployment of Twitter as a community activist tool for revolution in 2011,” Bradman explained (op cit). Obama got what he wanted. The Egyptians who wanted Mubarak out were empowered.

The path was cleared for the Muslim Brotherhood, which had socialist leanings and was assisted by all kinds of militant factions, like al Qaeda, and by the king of terrorism, Iran. The radical Islamists came in and promised the people freedom. Then they gave them the opposite and installed terrorists in the Egyptian government.

Terrorist factions infiltrated the riots and tore down statues and other supposed symbols of oppression. Did they want freedom and democracy? No, they wanted to destroy. They wanted to cancel Egypt’s Constitution, attack any form of Christianity, establish sharia law, and work with Iran. They wanted to blot out the name of Israel.

Once the new regime was in place, Egyptians realized that they had been hoodwinked, and they rose up against it. The military intervened and got rid of Mohamed Morsi because Egyptians wanted it back the way they had it before.

What is truly amazing, however, is that this plan the Obama administration carried out in Egypt foreshadowed a much bigger scheme. As Bradman concluded: “In direct and consequential ways, Egypt was the beta test for a process that surfaced a decade later in the United States during the 2020 election” (ibid).

That is a powerful statement. What they did in Egypt, they then did within America!

“Fast-forward to 2020, and those same elements deployed against the Egyptian government were deployed in the United States in a coordinated public-private partnership with Twitter, Facebook and social media,” Bradman continued. “The ideological interests between the 2010–’11 ‘Arab Spring’ uprising were the same ideological interests between the 2020 ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests/uprisings. … The exact same group of U.S. people who were promoting the Mideast Arab Spring in 2010–’11 are the same people who promoted the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests. The same politicians, the same media voices, the same newspapers, the same social media activists. Almost every participant and their support for the uprising … was identical, including the platforms deployed.”

There are direct connections between how Obama’s people stirred up revolution in Egypt and how they stirred up revolution in America. The goal in both cases, as only the Bible can reveal, was to blot out the name of Israel.

Too few Americans realize it, but their constitutional republic was built on many biblical principles. Obama has cast that to the ground for the same reason that the Antiochus in the Church cast the true doctrines to the ground and for the same reason that the Antiochus in Europe will physically destroy this nation—if we don’t repent! They are inspired by the same motivation from the same being!

Controlling All Three Branches

Ceylan Yeginsu wrote a New York Times article on December 27, 2017—the year Donald Trump was inaugurated president: “It was a case of the famous interviewing the famous. The bbc aired an interview on Wednesday that was unusual in at least a couple of respects: The man answering the questions was former President Barack Obama, and the man asking them was his friend Prince Harry. …

“While neither man mentioned Mr. Trump directly, they discussed the role of social media in leadership, a conversation that brought to mind Mr. Trump’s blunt, unvarnished posts on Twitter.

“Mr. Obama warned against the irresponsible use of social media by people in positions of power and expressed his concern about a future in which facts were discarded.”

This article then quoted Obama as saying, “One of the dangers of the Internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases. The question has to do with how we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn’t lead to a Balkanization of society and allows ways of finding common ground.”

Does Obama really want “a multiplicity of voices” and “a diversity of views”? Absolutely not! We now know that Barack Obama and his administration got control of Twitter, Big Tech corporations and most of the media. He had Twitter remove Trump’s memos and most of those of his supporters—about one half of America! He led Big Tech to do the same.

The extent of this treasonous activity is even worse than you can imagine. As Bradman wrote, “The attempt to remove President Trump from office encompassed all three branches of the U.S. government.

  • “Executive Branch—fbi, doj-[National Security Division], cia, State Department and eventually the Special Counsel Office
  • “Legislative Branch—[Senate Select Committee on Intelligence] in 2017 and 2018 with an assist from House Intelligence Committee and House Judiciary in 2019 and 2020
  • “Judicial Branch—fisa Court 2015, 2016, 2017; federal judges (Sullivan, Walton, Howell, Berman-Jackson) in alignment with D.C. intents in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

“How does the office of the United States president, and more importantly a constitutional republic itself, survive a coordinated coup effort that involves all three branches of government, while simultaneously those in charge of exposing the corruption fear the scale of the effort is too damaging for the U.S. government to reveal?” (Conservative Treehouse, Jan. 12, 2023).

Treason! Treason! Treason!

Here we see that Obama led all three branches of America’s government to blot out the views of Mr. Trump, his followers and other critics.

Seek God

During the Civil War, a time of nightmarish revolt and violence, President Abraham Lincoln said, “Does it not appear strange that men can ignore the moral aspect of this contest?” That “strange” moral ignorance and amorality is far worse today. Corruption is so deep in our government and in our people that it is irreversible without God’s help!

Before the Battle of Gettysburg, Lincoln dropped to his knees and prayed to God. How many of our leaders today would do that and submit to their Creator?

Jesus Christ warned that Satan the devil is a murderer and a liar, and that he controls people (John 8:44). There is no truth in him—he is utterly amoral. That is how he lives. He rebelled against God and tried to overthrow Him, and God hurled him right back to Earth. Now he is exerting a lot of power—especially through men whose minds are open to him and whom he uses to lie and destroy and murder.

Obama and his helpers in Big Tech and the government wield such power as to “replace the republic,” as Lee Smith wrote. His power reaches down to the state and local levels as well. And he has the greatest spy system in the world. He has demonstrated that he can target anyone he wants who speaks out about or resists what he is doing—up to and including the legitimately elected and reelected president of the United States! Who’s to stop him?

What can they do to you and me? They are already ruining the lives of many Trump supporters. How can anybody fail to recognize that something is dreadfully wrong here?

Americans need to wake up to what is happening and understand that it is motivated and powered by one man in particular. They also need to wake up to understand their Bibles and seek the true God!

Once you forsake God and you lose His protection, you are lost. God is the one who gave us our country. We have forsaken Him, and now He is taking it away. He is letting Satan attempt to blot out its very name.

Our only hope is in the God of the Bible who gave America, Britain, the Jewish state and all the other modern nations of Israel their blessings in the first place. Americans, even religious Americans, need to recognize how far they are from God. They have forsaken God, and that is why Satan has so much power: It is “by reason of transgression” (Daniel 8:12).

Hosea 5:5 prophesies that these three main nations that descended from ancient Israel will fall together. The only way to avoid that is to act on the message of the Bible, the message you are reading right now. There is no other way!

But if you will recognize how far you are from God, if you will hear His message, if you will repent and turn to Him, you will be amazed at the power that comes into your life. You need not be afraid of anything!
