Looks like Obama is in a fury of bitter retaliation.

He is apparently going to slap Russia with more sanctions as soon as this week.

All because of the "elections" !!!!!

This article is from CNN, and they cite: "according to American officials briefed on the plans"


Obama administration prepares sanctions, retaliation for Russian election meddling

(CNN)The Obama administration is preparing to announce, as soon as Thursday, a series of retaliation measures against Russia for meddling in the US election, according to American officials briefed on the plans.

The actions are expected to include expanded sanctions and diplomatic measures, the officials said, in what the administration deems a proportional response to a Russian operation that went beyond cyber hacking activities common among nations.

Russia will respond to any "hostile steps" that the US may take in response to allegations of hacking during the 2016 election, according to the official representative for the ministry.

She went on to say of the hacking, "frankly, we are tired about the lies about Russian hackers -- it's misinformation by Obama administration aimed at providing an excuse for its own failure."


That is EXACTLY what they are, and the only thing the current administration has done for the last eight years.

From Benghazi to the ACA.

LIE AFTER LIE.

Russian FALSE FLAG.

He has no proof mind you, but lets punish people because we lost the election.

Why doesn't he punish Mexico for sending us all those illegal voters?

Partisan tool.

Taking actions against a nation despite zero evidence of what you accuse them of, and your ulterior motives are clear for everyone to see.

Sounds familiar to me

Democrats just need to shut up and suck it up.

They lost as they pushed a unelectable, dynasty, establishment candidate.


If they cant admit the lose was THERE fault they wont win the next election either.

"he's" not the one 'imposing' sanctions. All denial of funds transfers have to be done thru a bank, get it?

Trump seems to be for working together instead of blocking business.

We'll see...

They can't.

They are too busying playing victim.

ALWAYS the victim of someone or something.

That's funny. Since the BBC is reporting it has "cross-party support"

BBC Report


Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham, and Democrat Amy Klobuchar, voiced their support for sanctions on Wednesday while visiting the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which are Nato members close to Russia's western edge.


So, senators wish to propose sanctions and therefore Obama did it?

Anybody thinking Obama is engaging in a "Scorched Earth" agenda before Trump takes over ?

He might also be setting up future excuses for his own failures that will soon be exposed.

The blame game continues !!

No different from the Democratic Party Leadership.

cnn should think about the consequences of reporting crap like this...
What if a skateboard crew went and incited a riot at the mall claiming Obama
should try to get back to his golf game and leave politics alone?

The crew of skateboarders will say they got the info from cnn, and they believe
cnn is the one inciting riots, pushing stories that would incite a riot...

The skateboard crew probably pay taxes too?

I think that "support" is coming after the fact.

Obama was harping about retaliation last week.

And he was very firm about it.

Well the report did have this.



"I would say that 99 of us (senators) believe the Russians did this and we're going to do something about it."


So it isn't Obama is it?

Sure is funny because O sure didn't get congressional approval for trying to rig Isreal election, and when he launched cyberattacks Flame, and Stuxnet against the middle east.

Barry, mind your business and go back to the bath house, go ahead, it'd be good for you, you worked hard. Now, you and Michael can rest. The next show is about to start & it's gonna be a doozy.
