(CitizensOutpost) Obama’s former administration officials are actively forming a shadow National Security team. Key players include former National Security Advisors Susan Rice and Tom Donilon, former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, and socialist former Defense Department official Rosa Brooks.
Shadow cabinets are hardly an American tradition – they are British – but Rhodes, possibly in consultation with a guy like Marxist U.K. Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, probably learned the use of them as a counter-cabinet in the wings in the event of a fall of the existing government, which happens a lot in parliamentary systems. No doubt, Rhodes expects something like that to happen here, too, given that this is the left-wing “narrative.”
Another purpose of such an operation is to serve as a ready-made foreign policy team, no matter which Democrat is elected – hence the group’s statement that it will be “progressive” but not endorse any candidates. In other words, the name of the Democrat who wins doesn’t matter; they just want to retake power again, like the glory days.
Here is what Ben Rhodes has been tweeting lately:

We’re proud to introduce National Security Action—a new organization committed to restoring principled American leadership at home and abroad.

Trump supporters should keep an eye on these developments. The push to remove a duly elected President from office is still ongoing, and the 2018 midterm elections will be a deciding factor on whether Democrats can garner enough votes in the House of Representative to initiate impeachment hearings.
