WHILE MAINSTREAM MEDIA CELEBRATED OBAMA'S "PUNISHMENT" OF RUSSIA FOR UNPROVEN ATTEMPTS TO "SWAY THE 2016 ELECTION IN FAVOR OF TRUMP"...
Russia, Iran and Turkey push for Syria peace plan without US or UN
Russia, Iran, and Turkey are shutting the U.S. out
THAT'S THE BREAKING NEWS THAT I'M SURE OBAMA HATED TO HEAR BECAUSE IT STEALS HIS 'THUNDER' ON THE RUSSIAN SANCTIONS, ETC.
ANYTHING BUT PEACE...SAYS THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNER PREZ BY HIS ACTIONS.
IN ONE OF THE SLICKEST POLITICAL "CHESS" MOVES OF THE ENTIRE COLD WAR, PUTIN DID NOT RETALIATE AND KICK AMERICAN SPIES, aka DIPLOMATS, OUT OF RUSSIA, SAID HE WILL NOT CLOSE AMERICAN FACILITIES THERE, BUT INSTEAD
WISHED THE OBAMAS HAPPY HOLIDAYS, INVITED AMERICAN DIPLOMATS' CHILDREN TO A CHRISTMAS PRESENTATION IN THE KREMLIN , SENT A SPECIAL PLANE FROM RUSSIA TO COLLECT THE EXPELLED DIPLOMATS, AND INVITED THE EXPELLED RUSSIANS TO A NEW YEAR'S CELEBRATION IN MOSCOW.
IMAGINE THE CHAGRIN IN WASHINGTON OVER THAT "CHECK" BY PUTIN !
INTERNATIONAL HEADLINES HAVE PORTRAYED OBAMA AS A PETULANT, VENGEFUL CHILD AGAINST AMERICAN VOTERS WHO CHOSE TRUMP, AGAINST BOTH RUSSIA AND ISRAEL, AND HAVE ACCUSED HIM OF MAKING A "DISGRACEFUL EXIT" AS PRESIDENT.
THE 'AMERICAN SPECTATOR' OPINED THAT "Obama and his ideological compatriots intensely dislike this country and wish to punish it. "
IF THE SHOE FITS...
JEW-HATERS AND 'COMMIE HUNTERS' ARE DELIGHTED WITH THIS WEEK'S WORK BY THE OUTGOING ARAB SYMPATHIZER, HUSSEIN OBAMA.
Using an executive order, Obama sanctioned the GRU and the FSB -- two of Russia's intelligence services" as well as other entities and individuals within the GRU.
In addition to the sanctions, the State Department has declared 35 Russian intelligence operatives "persona non grata" in the U.S., and is shutting down two Russian compounds in Maryland and New York.
REUTERS ACTUALLY TOLD US THE REAL REASON FOR THE SANCTIONS...THEY'RE FOR HILLARY'S SAKE.
CRY, BABY, CRY...HE'LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU.
Obama orders Russia expulsions, sanctions for interference in 2016 election
AND THIS: Obama Targets Putin's Spies Over DNC Hack
"Since the Nov. 8 results, Mr. Obama has taken a blow torch to the Oval Office, ensuring through his last minute executive actions and agency rulings, that Mr. Trump will have anything but a smooth transition into office.
Part of the goal here is to make sure that we have as much of the record public, or communicated to Congress, in a form that would be difficult to simply walk back,” an unnamed administration official told The Washington Post of their goal in crafting Russia’s reprisal."
SINGLE-HANDEDLY, SANS CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL OR HARD FACTS, OBAMA IS STILL SQUEALING IN UNISON WITH DEFEATED HILLARY CLINTON THAT "SHE WAS ROBBED BY THE RUSSIANS!" AND HE HAS JUST 22 DAYS TO MANEUVER HER INTO THE WHITE HOUSE, OR KEEP HIMSELF THERE.
WHICH WILL IT BE?
DECISIONS, DECISIONS. "President Barack Obama took unprecedented steps Thursday to retaliate against alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, prompting vows from Russian authorities that Moscow will respond in kind.
The administration also ordered 35 Russian diplomats to leave the country and two Russian compounds are being closed.
This is the first time the names of Russian officials involved in the hacking have become public on the sanctions list.
"Russia's cyberactivities were intended to influence the election, erode faith in US democratic institutions, sow doubt about the integrity of our electoral process, and undermine confidence in the institutions of the US government," a White House statement said. "These actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated."
HOW THE HELL DOES ANYONE KNOW "THE NAMES"?
DID THEY SIGN A CARD AND LEAVE IT ON HILLARY'S DESK?
I LAUGHED UNTIL I CRIED OVER THIS JOKE OF A CLAIM THAT THEY KNEW THE NAMES OF THOSE WHO HACKED THE DNC EMAILS.
WHY ISN'T JUST ONE MSM PRINTING ALL THOSE DNC INTERNAL EMAILS?
WHY ISN'T THE WORLD BEING SHOWN WHAT WAS IN THEM?
WHY AREN'T THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DEMANDING ANSWERS AS TO HOW THE DNC, THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND THE CLINTON FOUNDATION ARE ALL GETTING AWAY WITH THIS WITHOUT ANY 'PUNISHMENT' FROM CONGRESS OR THE WHITE HOUSE?
BY NOW, WELL, SINCE LAST JUNE, OBAMA HAS HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO THROW TOGETHER A SCRIPT, A FANTASY SCENARIO THAT HE AND THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WILL HARD-SELL TO AMERICA IN THE LEFT-LEANING MAINSTREAM MEDIA, HOPING, OF COURSE, TO CREATE NEW RIOTS, LOUDER DEMANDS THAT HILLARY BE CROWNED QUEEN, AND DO WHAT NO RUSSIAN COULD EVER DO... INSTIGATE ANOTHER AMERICAN CIVIL WAR.
AS AN ADDED BONUS, HE WILL LEAD THE CHARGE TO FURTHER DIVIDE ISRAEL'S WEE SPIT OF LAND AND HAND OVER AT LEAST A PORTION OF WHAT HOUSE OF SAUD AND ITS COHORTS (SLAVES, ACTUALLY, AS ALL OF OPEC ARE MERE SLAVES TO SAUDI ARABIA) HAVE DEMANDED FROM AMERICA FOR OVER 60 YEARS.
ALL OF ARABIA WANTS ISRAEL ERASED AND OBAMA HAS PULLED OUT THE BIG ERASER.
New York Post :After back-stabbing Israel, Team Obama pretends its hands are clean.
Obama stabbed Israel in the back | Fox News
BOTH BRITAIN AND AUSTRALIA HAVE OPENLY SHAMED OBAMA AND KERRY FOR THE BETRAYAL OF ISRAEL, AS HAVE MANY FROM WITHIN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
~ Even Democrats Criticize the Obama and Kerry Betrayal of Israel
~ Theresa May Scolds Kerry for Focus on Israel Settlements - The New York Times
~ Fury after historic UN vote on Israel settlements - The Australian
HE IS REALLY WORKING OVERTIME AND IT SHOWS.
HE LOOKS WRUNG-OUT.
WHY CHOOSE RUSSIA OVER ALL THE DOZENS WHO HAVE SUCCESSFULLY HACKED INTO AMERICA'S VULNERABLE CYBER SYSTEMS?
WELL, RUSSIA PISSED-OFF SAUDI ARABIA BY ALIGNING WITH IRAN, WHICH, BASICALLY, AMERICA ALSO DID, BUT THE SAUDIS KNOW THE WHITE HOUSE CAN BE SWAYED, AND SO SWAY IT IS AND BAM! JUST THAT QUICKLY, RUSSIA WILL BE PUNISHED TO PLEASE THE WHINERS IN ARABIA AND IN THE CLINTON HOUSEHOLD.
NONE OF THIS WILL CHANGE THE FACT THAT OBAMA HAS LOOKED LIKE A MISERABLE FAILURE ALL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST... BECAUSE HE WAS.
EVEN SOME IN HIS OWN CAMP CALLED HIM A FAILURE THERE.
"Whether in Syria or Palestine - and even Iraq, Libya and Yemen - the United States has seen its hopes dashed, its advice ignored, its red lines violated, and its warnings and ultimatums ridiculed.
(CNN) US President Barack Obama says he's haunted by Syria; that he's daunted by a repeat of the Libya intervention (which he sees as his biggest failure); that he's troubled by Israel's settlement activities in occupied Palestine, among others.
But he remains adamant that there isn't much he could have done to produce better results in a region that, in his words, is "going through a transformation that will play out for a generation, rooted in conflicts that date back millennia".
Be that as it may, the Obama administration is now looking for ways to save face and perhaps regain the initiative in the Middle East.
But what went wrong in the first place?
The Obama administration invested huge political capital in reaching the Iran nuclear deal, but it lost pretty much everything else. It has come out empty-handed in terms of better alliances, with its credibility compromised and its deterrence weakened.
Not having a Plan B ready is bad diplomacy.
Threatening to use a hypothetical one is plain stupid.
Resorting to Plan B as a mere afterthought to save face is dangerously naive.
Unfortunately, Obama's Plan B seems to be just that: an afterthought.
THE SKY IS FALLING!
WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO?
It's Time To Drive Russia Bankrupt -- Again - Forbes
"It wasn’t Reagan’s massive defense build-up, or his Star Wars program, that drove the Soviet Union to the wall; it was the decline in real oil prices caused by the Reagan/Volcker/Greenspan strengthening of the U.S. dollar.
The huge dollar premiums that gold and oil currently command reflect the value that these easy-to-store commodities have as hedges against dollar instability.
The high oil prices of 1980 ...were being caused by the weakness of the U.S. dollar, which had lost 94% of its value in terms of gold between 1969 and 1980.
94%...CAN YOU WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THAT?
The timing suggests the White House may also be trying to help Hillary...WALL STREET JOURNAL.
"Russia’s hacking habits are hardly new. One question is why the Obama Administration has gone public with this hacking news now."
The White House maintains that sanctions will bankrupt those in Putin’s inner circle.
Since bottoming out in May, the RTS (Russian Trading System) Index has risen 33 percent, replacing much of the loss caused in the early days of the crisis.
For instance, the Russian energy giant Rosneft has gone up 17 percent since Obama placed sanctions on Igor Sechin, its CEO. Another energy company, Novatek, has risen 37 percent since Treasury placed sanctions on its CEO, Gennady Timchenko. Gazprom, the state-owned energy giants, is up 30 percent since March, and 10 percent on the year.
DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES.
LET'S WHIP THE SHEEPLE INTO A FRENZY TO DESTROY RUSSIA!
AT LEAST HALF OF AMERICAN VOTERS WILL GO FOR THE LIE THAT "THE RUSSIANS MADE HILLARY LOSE!", SO RUN IT!
FLOOD THE MEDIA, STICK IT IN EVERY FACE!
HURRY, WE ONLY HAVE 22 DAYS!"
WE MUST BRING RUSSIA TO BANKRUPTCY FOR SEVERAL REASONS, BUT THESE MAY BE THE TOP 10:
(1) BECAUSE RUSSIA HAS SUGGESTED "GOLD FOR OIL", GOLD AS CURRENCY, THAT THE U.S. DOLLAR ISN'T WORTH AS MUCH AS MONOPOLY MONEY AND SO, LIKE SADDAM HUSSEIN (NO RELATION TO HUSSEIN OBAMA) AND QADDAFI OF LIBYA, RUSSIA MUST BE PUNISHED, DEFEATED, BANKRUPTED.
(2) ARABIA (HOUSE OF SAUD, MASTER OF ALL) SAYS SO.
(3) HILLARY BLAMED OBAMA FOR HER DEFEAT.
HE MUST MAKE AMENDS.
BLAME THE RUSSIANS LIKE HILLARY DID.
KISS A LITTLE CLINTON BEHIND.
NEVER MIND WHAT THOSE EMAILS SHOWED US, THAT HILLARY IS A RACIST BIGOT/ELITIST AND THAT THE DNC AND THE "CLINTON FOUNDATION" SELL 'FAVORS'.
DO NOT READ THOSE EMAILS!
JUST GET HILLARY QUIETED DOWN.
On election night, Hillary was straight up “Hitler-in-the-bunker”
WHAT A HOOT!
(4) TO PUT THE BOOT HEEL TO AMERICANS WHO VOTED AGAINST "THE ESTABLISHMENT" AND WHO SEEMED TO AGREE WITH TRUMP'S ASSESSMENT OF RUSSIA. DAMN THEM!
WE CAN'T HAVE AMERICANS SEEING RUSSIA AS A POSSIBLE ALLY, OR SEEING THAT AMERICA'S REAL ENEMY LIES WITHIN OUR BORDERS!
EVEN THOUGH SIX OUTGOING PRESIDENTS HAVE TRIED TO WARN US SINCE LINCOLN THAT THE ENEMY IS US, WE CAN'T ALLOW A CLOSER LOOK BEHIND THAT CURTAIN.
(5) WE'VE ALWAYS BLAMED THE RUSSIANS AND USED THEM TO SCARE THE GULLIBLE MASSES.
IT'S JUST GOOD BUSINESS.
NEED MORE NUKES TO PROTECT US!
NEED MORE "HOMELAND SECURITY"...BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID!
(6) NATO SET UP A WHINE..."THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING! SAVE US! GIVE US YOUR BILLIONS IN AID AND ARMS!"
WE MUST WORK QUICKLY BECAUSE TRUMP DOESN'T LIKE NATO.
AND AMERICANS ARE TURNING ON NATO AS WELL...
"80 percent agree that the president—regardless of who that may be—should be required to make its case before members of Congress and receive congressional authorization for the use of military force before the U.S. military is deployed in ANY operations.
51.1 percent of the Americans surveyed believe that the next commander-in-chief should use less U.S. military force abroad.
41 percent want European members of NATO to increase their own defense spending and start carrying their own weight.
49 percent agree with the notion that the 2003 invasion of Iraq made the United States less safe.
51 percent don’t want any U.S. ground troops deployed in Syria.
Over 63 percent don’t believe it’s wise for the United States to provide Saudi Arabia with more military support.
(7) RUSSIA MIGHT ACTUALLY BROKER PEACE IN SYRIA!
Syria Truce Brokered as Russia, Turkey Grab Initiative From U.S.: BLOOMBERG NEWS.
Syria ceasefire: How Russia, Turkey seized initiative - CNN.com
THAT WOULD BE HORRRRIBLE, SO HORRIBLE!
THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX WOULD LOSE BILLIONS, TRILLIONS!
WALL STREET WOULD CRY...AGAIN.
(8) WALL STREET CRIED ABOUT CHEAP OIL.
RUSSIA DIDN'T MUCH WANT TO STOP PROVIDING THAT, SO, ELIMINATE RUSSIA AND START SELLING AMERICA'S OWN OIL RESERVES TO THE WHINERS IN EUROPE.
$$$ KA-CHING, KA-CHING $$$!.
(9) NATIONS WHO WERE LEANING TOWARD RUSSIA AND AWAY FROM THE U.S. WILL SEE WHAT COMES TO RUSSIA AND RUN BACK TO THE U.S.
THAT WON'T HAPPEN, BUT WASHINGTON CAN DREAM.
MOST OF THE WORLD HAS ALREADY WRITTEN AMERICA OFF AS A DYING BULLY.
EVEN GERMANY AND THE U.K. HAVE BEGUN DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM AMERICA, AS FRANCE ALREADY HAD.
TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, THE PARTY'S OVER...ALMOST.
(10) EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA, SOUTH AMERICA WERE ALL TURNING TO RUSSIA AND CHINA FOR GOODS THAT AMERICA ONCE SOLD TO THEM.
THE STRONGER RUSSIA/CHINA ALLIANCE SCARED THE BOYS IN D.C.
CHINA COULD NOT CARE LESS WHAT AMERICA DOES, THOUGH IT MAKES A FEW COMMENTS JUST TO KEEP THINGS RUNNING WELL FOR THE DESPERATE BOYS IN WASHINGTON AND ON WALL STREET.
CHINA COULD BANKRUPT AMERICA TOMORROW,
OBAMA HAS MADE A BAD MOVE...AGAIN.
NOW, WE, THE SILENT SHEEPLE, WILL PAY.
HIGHER PRICES AT THE PUMP, GRANTED TO WALL STREET.
AMERICANS ARE SCREWED AS PRICES GO UP.
HIGHER PRICES FOR AMERICAN OIL NOW SOLD ABROAD.
$$$ KA-CHING! $$$
OBAMA MAY HAVE KEPT THE PEACE PROCESS FROM GOING FORWARD IN SYRIA.
$$$ KA-CHING! $$$ FOR THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.
HILLARY CAN STOP DRINKING SO MUCH, MAYBE, AND STOP SLAPPING BILL AND PODESTA AND OTHERS AROUND IN A RAGE.
HALF OF AMERICA CAN TAKE TO THE STREETS AGAIN AND WAIL AND GNASH THEIR TEETH AT THE INJUSTICE OF IT ALL.
EVERY JEW-HATER ON PLANET EARTH CAN CELEBRATE...UNTIL ISRAEL UNLEASHES HELL, AT LEAST.
WHAT A GREAT WEEK FOR OBAMA!
