Putin's Many Fans On The American Right Will Be Aghast

Mod: The United States government is about to retaliate against Russia for its now notorious hack of our presidential election last month. I am sure the so-called "alt-right" and others who side with this hostile foreign military power will not be happy about what is about to happen. Not since the 1960s have so many sided with an enemy of our country as a part of their narrow ideologically driven political agenda. The biggest difference today being this capitulation is not coming from the left, but from those who have gratuitously self-identified themselves as being "patriots."

Obama Finally Decided How To Punish Russia For Hacking The Election (Occupy Democrats link): President Obama is reportedly preparing a fresh wave of sanctions against the Russian Federation over dictator Vladimir Putin’s personally supervised electronic warfare and propaganda campaign against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee during the election.

An executive order passed in April 2015 allows President Obama to levy sanctions against individuals or nation-states that perpetrate cyberwarfare crimes against the United States.

The hacking efforts began as a personal vendetta just to spite Hillary Clinton, but once Putin realized how easily manipulated an egomaniacal idiot like Donald Trump was, the efforts became a full-fledged campaign to put him into the White House. Russian hackers working under the pseudonym of “Guccifer” hacked the files of the DNC and the personal emails of  Clinton campaign manager John Podesta as well as the accounts of down-ballot Democrats.

Those emails were strategically released to the public in edited forms to stir up dissension among liberals and to underscore the false themes being trumped in Trumpian/Putinist propaganda narratives.

One of the primary objectives of Vladimir Putin’s pro-Trump efforts were to get the sanctions previously imposed by the Obama administration in 2014 following Putin’s occupation and annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine. Those sanctions were as follows:


Summarized, the sanctions keep Putin and his oligarch buddies from funneling more of Russia’s wealth into their private Swiss bank accounts – and from capitalizing on a potentially $500 billion deal signed with the man Trump just appointed as his secretary of state – the CEO of Exxon, Rex Tillerson. This fresh round of sanctions will hit Putin and the Russian Federation where it really hurts – in his wallet. With luck, President Obama will write them into law in such a way that Trump simply can’t repeal them on his first day.

Obama administration is close to announcing measures to punish Russia for election interference (Washington Post link): The Obama administration is close to announcing a series of measures to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election, including economic sanctions and diplomatic censure, according to U.S. officials. The administration is finalizing the details, which also are expected to include covert action that will probably involve cyber-operations, the officials said.

An announcement on the public elements of the response could come as early as this week.

The sanctions portion of the package culminates weeks of debate in the White House on how to revise a 2015 executive order that was meant to give the president authority to respond to cyberattacks from overseas but that did not cover efforts to influence the electoral system.

The Obama administration rolled the executive order out to great fanfare as a way to punish and deter foreign hackers who harm U.S. economic or national security.

The threat to use it last year helped wring a pledge out of China’s president that his country would cease hacking U.S. companies’ secrets to benefit Chinese firms.

  1. Democrats are trying to delegitimize Trump by pushing the canard that Russia rigged the election in Trumps favor. How does that explain all the down ballot candidates who won. Since Obama took office 8 years ago the Democrats have lost over 1000 seats whether it's the House, Senate, Governorships or state legislatures. It's the message stupid. Face that fact. That has nothing to do with the Russians.

    1. Thanks Comrade. Actually it is the CIA that made this assessment, and later the FBI signed on. But I guess you figure that any American intelligence organization cannot be half as good as the KGB and its illustrious leader, right?

      A dark cloud of illegitimacy hangs over the pending presidency of Donald Trump. Bad enough that Trump rejects the conclusions of the CIA, FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia intervened in the 2016 campaign to help him become president.

      Even worse that Trump publicly sides with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the issue.

      Last week, Putin claimed that Democrats fabricated the charge of Russian meddling because Democrats "are losing on all fronts and looking elsewhere for things to blame. In my view, this, how shall I say it, degrades their own dignity. You have to know how to lose with dignity."

      Hours later, Trump praised Putin's statement, tweeting, "Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: 'In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity.' So true!"

      You might expect that a president-elect who was defeated in the popular vote by a startling 2.84 million votes — the largest popular defeat ever suffered by a candidate elevated to the presidency by the Electoral College — would be a bit more circumspect.

    4. Blame someone, blame something, but don't take the blame for failures. Even if you place the blame elsewhere, how are things going to be changed? Work together to make changes, work together to make improvements and things will work out. It time to realize that working on one side or the other only builds walls, anger and unhappiness. Just think of at least 4 years of stress, anger and frustration, redevelop your team and build them up with your energy. Don't waste your time trying to change what has happened, learn from your mistakes, and do as the liberal press says "LEAN FORWARD"

    5. I have a better idea. Let's follow the lead of Donald Trump and launch a campaign challenging the legitimacy of his birth certificate!

  2. Don't buy into this Tattler. This is all a coordinated effort to hurt Trump. It's all a big lie just like blaming a YouTube video for the deaths of the 4 Americans was a lie and just like saying the IRS didn't target conservatives was a lie and the list goes on and on. The alt left follows the Alinski dictum that the end always justifies the means. So lying is always justified. Some of you need a therapy dog, or some playdoe to work through your anger at Trump being elected. You really need to move on or you are really going to suffer for the next 8 long years as your dream of a socialist utopia crumbles. I'm only trying to help.

    1. Quite a conspiracy theory. So, and making the rather bold assumption that there is anything true in what you are saying here, why would the CIA have come to the conclusion that Russia hacked the election? Do you feel that they, like many government organizations, are inferior and corrupt? And what if they are not? Who would benefit by the attempt to denigrate American government agencies entrusted with defending this country from its foreign enemies?

  3. The CIA also made the assessment that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and look where that got us.

    4. From the Intercept article: In the Republican presidential debate in South Carolina on Saturday night, Donald Trump said something about the Bush administration and the Iraq War that is essentially illegal for Republican politicians.

      “They lied,” he said. “They said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none. And they knew there were none.”

    5. You guys are all over the place. Move on. Bush was president 8 years ago. Forget about Bush. Trump is our President now and deserves a chance. Let's see what he does first. I'll be the first one to criticize him if he stumbles.

    6. Bush came up in the CIA conversation. Someone posted some erroneous information, was called out and hasn't been heard from since.

  4. Actually; now that you bring Nostradamus into the comic relief of the Obama Administration legacies. It was predicted by Nostradamus that a leader in the West wearing a turbin, would herald in World War III. Quite a guy that Nostradamus. Obama will be the antecedent to World War III. The alt- left of 2016, will attempt to discredit centuries of predictions that have come to pass, and place blame elsewhere.

  9. Truth of the matter is that it didn't matter who won or lost in this election. This hacking and spreading of lies is a way of dividing the country. Divide and conquer, let us not forget that strategy. The hate is so great we will never unite until it's to late. Think of the confederate flags where we divide the south from the north. Our children are going to pay for this.

      Trump got 83% support from voters who wanted change. Even with his controversial remarks, Trump won.

    3. That's the frustrating part the people who want change mistakenly voted for trump out of fear and anger. Trump is and school elite and has zero track record his entire life of doing anything for the working classes. Even his phony foundation is being shut down. Only loyal supporters he has are white supremacists, the rest are just rising the gravy train.

      Machiavelli style.

  15. They're going to get lots of change:

    Too many people are too easily blaming the rise of Trump on Democrats forgetting the “white working class.” Yes, Trump appealed to real economic fears among working people. But he lost every income bracket below $48,000 and won every group above it, blowing the dog whistles of race to divide poor and working people. Any resistance to Trump that doesn’t address his divide-and-conquer tactics from Wisconsin to Ohio to North Carolina and Alabama cannot offer a real political alternative.
