If you would have told me last year that we were sanctioning Russia, our relations with Israel are in the toilet and lifted sanctions on Iran? I would have called you crazy.
Now the craziness seems to be coming true!
Thanks to Obama and his wise administration.
Just yesterday it was reported that Secretary of State Kerry and the Obama administration are causing transitional chaos for the new Trump administration coming into the White House. First by abstaining from the US vote against new Israel settlements along the West Bank and now by announcing new sanctions against Russia. What buffoons.
CNN reported earlier this week that now the Obama administration is considering sanctions against Russia for meddling in our election. More nonsensical rubbish. This is again another lame attempt in trying to stain Trump’s smooth transition into the White House.
Today, most news agencies reported the sanctions announced by the Obama administration. The Obama administration announced a slate of economic sanctions targeting two of Russia’s main intelligence organizations — the GRU and the FSB — four individual GRU officers, three companies who provided support to the GRU and six individuals implicated in the campaign.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Thursday released a joint report detailing how federal investigators linked the Russian government to hacks of Democratic Party organizations.
The document makes clear reference to the hacks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, though it does not mention either by name.
The 13-page report provides technical details regarding tools and infrastructure used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services to “compromise and exploit networks and endpoints associated with the U.S. election, as well as a range of U.S. Government, political, and private sector entities.” (The Hill)
If you understand anything about espionage, this type of thing happens all the time. It happens every day of every year. There is nothing new about this. This is just another attempt by Democratic individuals and the Obama administration to try and save-face for Hilary’s lost election.
How Russian hacking influenced the election is not clearly understood and not even proven to have any affect on the result. It seems a little ridiculous that hacking could have influenced the results. If anything, it showed how corrupt the DNC was in trying to sabotage Bernie Sander’s campaign. This was clearly evident in the 20,000 plus emails exposed by Wikileaks. The DNC has accused Russian hackers in leaking these emails.
As you may recall, one email even discussed Bernie Sanders religious affiliation as a Jew slandering him as an atheist among other things. (ABC News) Remember, after the leaks, Debbie Wasserman Schultz quickly resigned after it was revealed she tried to undermine Sanders campaign.
It’s obvious that the Wikileaks dumped emails were more concerned with Bernie than Trump. Even NSA director Mike Rogers said the DNC hacks did not affected the outcome of the election:
“I don’t think in the end it had the effect that [the hackers] had hoped it might,” Rogers said during a panel at the Halifax International Security Forum.
Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Az.) expressed a similar sentiment on Saturday, stating that, “I do not think that the outcome of the election was impacted by Russian hacking.”
“I would agree with that assessment,” Rogers said Sunday, although he did not specifically name Russia. Last week, he had said there was no doubt “a nation state” intentionally tried to interfere in the U.S. election. (Townhall)
It seems the Obama administration is going out of its way this week to obstruct and create discourse for the new incoming administration. I’ve never witnessed such calamity with an outgoing president weeks before the inauguration.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Hilary Clinton, who complained that Russian hacking among other things, had cost her the election, found out the hacking and leaked emails were actually instigated from within her own party?
Again, the entire theory of Russian hacking and now sanctions against Russia is just another Flimflam in an out-going president’s administration. Sanctions is the closest thing Obama will ever get to proving that the Russian’s had anything to do with the outcome of this election. And it is just another stupid move that is actually affecting well established operatives and their families living here in the United States.
In addition to the sanctions, 35 Russian operatives will be expelled from the country and listed as “persona non grata.” The operatives, who are based out of the Russian embassy in Washington and the Russian consulate in San Francisco, have been informed they have 72 hours to leave the United States along with their families.

In fact, some news organizations are unraveling the whole conspiracy hacking issue and are coming to the conclusion that the emails were actually leaked by a DNC insider and Bernie Sanders supporter who was just pissed off at the Clinton operatives slandering and trying to eliminate Sanders from the Democratic ticket.

Trump responded today:
“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” Trump said in a statement. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”
Unfortunately, for Obama and his cronies, this is just another failed attempt to derail the new administration and will likely strengthen ties between both Israel and Russia once Trump is in office.
And we all thought Trump’s tweets were over the top and exaggerated?
