Tick tock. Tick tock. The clock is ticking and it’s only a matter of time now before Obama is out of office. Thank God! However, President Obama is doing everything he can to continue to screw with American policies and create havoc before Trump’s inauguration day.
Obama is working overtime to put in place economic sanctions and diplomatic censure against Russia for “hacking” into the presidential election. Even though we have already been told by some officials and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange it wasn’t the Russians. Obama doesn’t care. He is going to continue to move forward blaming the media, Russia and everyone else BUT Clinton for her loss in the presidential election.
Just a week after Obama held a press conference announcing that he sent a stern warning to Vladamir Putin regarding his alleged “election hacking” efforts (see “Obama Told Putin To “Cut It Out” On Hacking“), the Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration is close to announcing a series of economic sanctions and other measures to punish Russia for its “interference” in the 2016 presidential election. Quoting “U.S. officials,” WaPo said that an announcement from the Obama administration could come as early as this week and would likely include “covert cyber operations.”
According to WaPo’s “sources”, the delay in sanctions against Russia have come from Obama’s inability to take unilateral actions under current laws. While Obama previously signed an executive order that would allow him to freeze the assets in the United States of people overseas who have engaged in cyber acts, it only applies to actions that have threatened U.S. national security or financial stability. Further, per a “senior administration official,” use of the existing law would require (1) actual election infrastructure to be designated as ‘critical infrastructure’ and (2) the administration to prove that such infrastructure was actually “harmed,” conditions which the National Security Council say have not been met.
So officials told Obama and his administration the executive order could not as written be used to punish cyber-provocation, so Obama’s team is working frantically to rewrite the executive and put the sanctions in place against Russia. Even though….we know it was NOT Russia who “hacked” the elections, but disgruntled Democrats.
Let’s take a step back, shall we? Has Obama forgotten his OWN State Department paid hundreds of thousands in taxpayers’ grants to an Israeli group to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and disrupt his election? I guess Obama must think it’s O.K. to disrupt elections when you’re NOT on the receiving end, but do it against Democrats and you’ll be reprimanded. Nice, huh?
Obama just doesn’t get it. He is SO DELUSIONAL! He still thinks Hillary wasn’t treated “fairly” during the election. Of course, he also thinks the MSM coverage of Hillary was “troubling”. Even though, 99% of the MSM endorsed Clinton and contributed 95% more coverage to the alleged and pumped up Trump “sex scandals” versus the WikiLeaks/Clinton emails. Obama just never ceases to amaze me…even on his way out of office. It’s like he has to do ONE MORE thing to screw over America before Trump gets into office.
It’s no surprise Americans voted for Trump. Americans are TIRED of Obama’s destruction and wreaking of havoc on America. It’s time to #MAGA. Thank goodness Obama has less than 30 days. Tick tock. Tick tock.
