One of Hillary’s most ‘notable’ items on her wish list during the 2016 presidential election campaign was to start a nuclear war with Russia. Yes, a nuclear war. In case your memory fails you, let me remind you that during her campaign, she pushed for no-fly zones in Syria which would most certainly have caused a war with Russia, if implemented and enforced.
Thankfully because Trump won the election, every single one of Hillary’s “Stronger Together” plans went down the toilet. But oh wait, it looks like Obama is making a desperate attempt to do it instead. And what better way to exit the Oval Office than with a bang? Ummm I mean starting Cold War 2.
On Thursday, Obama made already volatile tensions between the US and Russia reach an all-time low when he ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and imposed sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies over unsubstantiated allegations that they were involved in hacking the 2016 presidential election.
Branding the diplomats as “intelligence operatives,” the US State Department said they had just 72 hours to leave the country.
From the comfort of his superfluous Hawaiian vacation – paid for by the average hardworking American – Obama essentially ignited a fireball.
“These actions follow repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.”
“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions,” he said.
Actually no, it’s the other way round. I reckon all Americans should be alarmed at Obama’s actions NOT Russia’s.
Let’s also not forget that the CIA “investigation” into the hacking allegations was factually incomplete, based on unfounded allegations, lacked zero hard evidence and was not even mutually accepted by the broader intelligence community let alone the community’s head agency.
Not only has Obama falsely accused Russia for hacking the U.S. election, he’s actually made matters worse by ordering sanctions on Russia… based on unfounded allegations.
What a way to start the Cold War all over again.
But, President Vladimir Putin said Moscow would not expel anyone in response to Washington’s malevolent sanctions. That’s not to say that they didn’t consider it, however. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier proposed to Putin to expel 35 US diplomats and ban US diplomatic staff from using a holiday home and a warehouse in Moscow.
Putin said he would wait for the actions of peacemaker President-elect Donald Trump, who will take office on Jan. 20, before deciding on any further steps in relations with the United States.
“We will not expel anyone,” Putin said in a statement on Friday. “While keeping the right for retaliatory measures, we will not descend to the level of ‘kitchen’, irresponsible diplomacy.”
Putin even took the high road by inviting U.S. diplomats and their families to a party in the Kremlin.
Trump has dismissed the allegations from the CIA and other intelligence agencies that Russia was behind the cyber attacks. He said on Thursday he would meet with intelligence officials soon.
“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” he said.
Exactly. Russia’s denied the allegations, so has Julian Assange, there’s no evidence for such baseless claims, Trump doesn’t want to hear about this nonsense, so why on earth does Obama want to continue pushing his stupid “Russians hacked the election” narrative?
Short answer? He endorsed Hillary as the Democratic presidential candidate and since she was the sore loser of the election, he wants to continue propping her up with fake news narratives.
Let’s not forget that Hillary just one month after her spectacular election loss declared at a public speech in Washington that it was all Russia’s fault.
Needless to say, Hillary is a sore loser and Obama is trying to get revenge because his camp lost miserably. And that, my friend, is totally what this entire fiasco is all about.
Whether anyone likes it or not, Hillary lost the Oval Office thanks to populism, NOT Russians interfering with the democratic process. I’m not exactly sure why that’s so difficult to understand.
How much longer will Americans be subjected to this baseless, intelligence-insulting narrative that Trump’s going to be the 45th president of the United States all because of Russian hackers?
