There are many convincing reasons to conclude that Joe Biden is effectively a “missing” president, and that the show is being run by others behind the scenes.
Although some of the names that have surfaced as “shadow presidents” are well-known, one name that has recently been added to the list could surprise some. Let’s take a look at each of these figures one by one.
Barack Obama is a fascinating case study since he was slow to support his former vice president in his 2020 presidential campaign.
The New York Post announced in August that “Barack Obama officially endorsed presumptive Democratic candidate Joe Biden.” “However, according to a source, he has privately raised grave reservations regarding his former vice president’s 2020 White House bid.”
According to an unnamed Democrat quoted in a Politico article, Obama said, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s willingness to f–k things up.” However, the Democratic Party’s optics can never be taken at face value. Words are less successful than acts.
Obama’s sudden revival was noted in a Guardian article titled “The shadow of Obama” in November, following Biden’s presumed election victory.
The Guardian remarks, “He’s back with a vengeance.” “After four years of obscurity when Donald Trump was president, Barack Obama is suddenly everywhere – on TV, radio, online, and in bookstores. A Promised Land, the memoir of the 44th president of the United States, was released this week and is on track to become the bestselling presidential memoir in modern American history, having sold nearly 890,000 copies in its first 24 hours. It outsold Michelle Obama’s Being, which sold 725,000 copies on its first day.”
“As he promotes the 768-page book, Obama is being asked what leverage he and his allies will have when Joe Biden, Obama’s former deputy, takes office in January,” the article continues. “It’s a two-edged sword.” Biden is conscious that he will still be able to seek help from his former boss – but he has big shoes to fill and will struggle as a result.”
David Garrow, author of Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, said, “I’m sure Barack will be happy to respond to any question or request Biden put to him.”
Obama said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning that Biden “doesn’t need my guidance” and that he will assist him in every way he can. Now, I’m not planning on joining the White House team or something like that.”
When asked whether he would consider joining the cabinet, Obama deflected, saying, “There are certain things I wouldn’t do because Michelle would leave me.” ‘What?’ she’d say. ‘What are you doing?’
Since Joe Biden’s ability to manage the White House has steadily declined, Kamala Harris, one of America’s most progressive Democrats, is now set to become President of the United States.
Despite the vice-presidency being a particularly weak position, there are several reasons to believe Harris has been an indispensable go-to person in the Biden White House.
For instance, Harris is now taking Biden’s phone calls with world leaders. On President’s Day weekend, Biden was absent from a call with French President Emanuel Macron, according to the National Pulse. The following is a quotation from the White House press briefing:
Vice President Kamala Harris met with French President Emmanuel Macron today, expressing her commitment to improving bilateral relations between the two countries and revitalizing the transatlantic alliance.
President Macron and Vice President Harris agreed that strong bilateral and multilateral cooperation is needed to resolve COVID-19, climate change, and promote democracy at home and abroad. They also addressed a number of regional problems, including those in the Middle East and Africa, as well as the importance of tackling them as a group. President Macron’s leadership on the issue of gender equality, as well as France’s contribution to NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover, were lauded by Vice President Biden.
Kamala Harris also met with Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada. She also attends almost every one of Biden’s intelligence briefings.
“The President’s Daily Brief, a highly classified briefing on the country’s top intelligence, has returned to a daily occurrence after occurring only sporadically under Trump,” CNN confirmed, without noting that he read them anyway. “Joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Kamala Harris — who, like Obama, has received the briefing on an iPad — Biden is briefed by a group of intelligence professionals.”
According to sources, Harris was enraged that Russian President Vladimir Putin was aware of Syrian airstrikes before she was. Since Kamala Harris appears to be effectively preparing to become the next President of the United States, she must be kept updated.
Susan Rice, who served as Obama’s National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017, has joined the Biden administration as a domestic policy adviser, another security-masked role.
What exactly qualifies Rice to be a domestic policy advisor is a mystery; however, if she were being groomed to rise through the ranks, it would be a great compliment to her experience as a foreign policy expert. And political junkies are well aware of her pivotal role in the “unmasking” scandals during the Obama administration’s final months, as well as her notorious “CYA” memo.
“PBS’s Judy Woodruff asked Rice in April 2017 if she was aware of members of the Trump team being surveilled in conjunction with international investigations,” according to the Post.
She responded, “I don’t know anything about this.” “I was taken aback when I saw the reports.”
According to the Post, “we now know that Rice was very much aware of, and a participant in, the espionage activities, including the unmasking of Flynn.”
This comes on top of Rice’s whirlwind Sunday tour of Benghazi propaganda, in which she blamed a Youtube video for the attempted terror attack on a diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans.
Susan Rice, according to former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, is the “true president” and the brains behind the Biden operation.
On “Sunday Morning Futures,” he said, “I think you need to keep a close eye on Susan Rice.” “She’ll be the president’s shadow.”
“Considering Rice has little background in domestic policy but would be ‘incredibly powerful’ under the new administration, Grenell called Biden’s choice ‘interesting,’” Fox News continued.
Rice is conscious of the “entire apparatus,” according to Grenell.
“I assume the truth is that she will be in charge of both foreign and domestic policy,” he said. “She’s probably ecstatic that Kamala Harris will be preoccupied with the Senate… and won’t have much time to think about policy.”
Biden’s pliability on all of these drastic executive orders, according to Grenell, shows that he is weakened and being manipulated by extremists around him.
“During the Democratic primary, we saw him lift his hand for some very radical ideas,” he said. “It’s obvious that the socialists have taken hold of him… And Susan Rice becoming the shadow president at the White House is probably just where she needs to be.”
Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and Kamala Harris are only a few of the most influential personalities linked to the Biden White House who could exert undue leverage over a weakened president. Joe Biden does not seem to be in charge of the Biden White House.
