    Editor’s Comment: You can sense that Internet control is coming. It is incredible how unbelievable the official story is allowed to be. No proof is required, and no verifiable facts must be in place for President Obama, or any other leading official, to simply claim atrocities, meddling, interference, etc. on the part of an adversary.

    Countries do not operate on a moral basis, and there are no “good” players involved, but they have stretched fiction into fact and completely distorted what has happened. Loose claims about Russian hacking is, in turn, used to justify a clamp down in free speech on the alternative and independent media. The very idea that the Internet banded together to oppose the Clinton candidacy is, itself, at heart, the real root of the problem – and one which they intend to deal with here shortly.

    US Issues Sanctions Against Russia, Expels 35 Diplomats, Closes 2 Compounds In Retaliation For Election “Hacking”

    by Tyler Durden

    As promised (or threatened), the Obama administration has unveiled – via the US Treasury – new sanctions against Russia over election hacking allegations (that as yet have not been supported by any actual evidence). Despite president-elect Trump’s comments that “we ought to get on with our lives,” the sanctions apply to five entities and six individuals, and also including the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats and closing two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland in response to a campaign of harassment against American diplomats in Moscow, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

    Amusingly, one of the entities is Russia’s FSB, aka the Federal Security Service, i.e. the Russian spy service, to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons. Which, perhaps, means that previously the US would look the other way when known spies would enter the US.

    The move against the diplomats from the Russian embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco is part of a series of actions announced on Thursday to punish Russia for a campaign of intimidation of American diplomats in Moscow and interference in the U.S. election.

    The Russian diplomats would have 72 hours to leave the United States, the official said. Access to the two compounds, which are used by Russian officials for intelligence gathering, will be denied to all Russian officials as of noon on Friday, the senior U.S. official added.

    “These actions were taken to respond to Russian harassment of American diplomats and actions by the diplomats that we have assessed to be not consistent with diplomatic practice,” the official said .The State Department has long complained that Russian security agents and traffic police have harassed U.S. diplomats in Moscow, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has raised the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov.

    “By imposing costs on the Russian diplomats in the United States, by denying them access to the two facilities, we hope the Russian government reevaluates its own actions, which have impeded the ability and safety of our own embassy personnel in Russia,” the official said.

    As for proof, well just trust Obama, who said that “data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government.” And Iraq had WMD, or something….

    The outgoing president finally threatens that he will continue to take more sanctions against Russia, without noting in advance just what they will be. He better hurry: Obama has 23 days left as US president.

    Full statement from President Obama

    Statement by the President on Actions in Response to Russian Malicious Cyber Activity and Harassment

    Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response to the Russian government’s aggressive harassment of U.S. officials and cyber operations aimed at the U.S. election. 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. In October, my Administration publicized our assessment that Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process. These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government. Moreover, our diplomats have experienced an unacceptable level of harassment in Moscow by Russian security services and police over the last year. Such activities have consequences. Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response.

    I have issued an executive order that provides additional authority for responding to certain cyber activity that seeks to interfere with or undermine our election processes and institutions, or those of our allies or partners. Using this new authority, I have sanctioned nine entities and individuals: the GRU and the FSB, two Russian intelligence services; four individual officers of the GRU; and three companies that provided material support to the GRU’s cyber operations. In addition, the Secretary of the Treasury is designating two Russian individuals for using cyber-enabled means to cause misappropriation of funds and personal identifying information. The State Department is also shutting down two Russian compounds, in Maryland and New York, used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes, and is declaring “persona non grata” 35 Russian intelligence operatives. Finally, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are releasing declassified technical information on Russian civilian and military intelligence service cyber activity, to help network defenders in the United States and abroad identify, detect, and disrupt Russia’s global campaign of malicious cyber activities.

    These actions are not the sum total of our response to Russia’s aggressive activities. We will continue to take a variety of actions at a time and place of our choosing, some of which will not be publicized. In addition to holding Russia accountable for what it has done, the United States and friends and allies around the world must work together to oppose Russia’s efforts to undermine established international norms of behavior, and interfere with democratic governance. To that end, my Administration will be providing a report to Congress in the coming days about Russia’s efforts to interfere in our election, as well as malicious cyber activity related to our election cycle in previous elections.

    More details from the NYT:

    The Obama administration struck back at Russia on Thursday for its efforts to influence the 2016 election, ejecting 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States and imposing sanctions on Russia’s two leading intelligence services, including four top officers of the military intelligence unit the White House believes ordered the attacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political organizations.

    In a sweeping set of announcements, the United States was also expected to release evidence linking the cyberattacks to computer systems used by Russian intelligence. Taken together, the actions would amount to the strongest American response ever taken to a state-sponsored cyberattack aimed at the United States.

    The sanctions were also intended to box in President-elect Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump has consistently cast doubt that the Russian government had anything to do with the hacking of the D.N.C. or other political institutions, saying American intelligence agencies could not be trusted and suggesting that the hacking could have been the work of a “400-pound guy” lying in his bed.

    Mr. Trump will now have to decide whether to lift the sanctions on the Russian intelligence agencies when he takes office next month, with Republicans in Congress among those calling for a public investigation into Russia’s actions. Should Mr. Trump do so, it would require him to effectively reject the findings of his intelligence agencies.

    As Bloomberg reports, among those targeted were officials of GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, which cybersecurity experts in the U.S. have linked to the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and party officials through a group they have nicknamed APT 28 or Fancy Bear. The U.S. also is sanctioning some Russian state institutions and cyber companies associated with them.

    The NYT adds that the Obama administration is also planning to release a detailed “joint analytic report” from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security that is clearly based in part on intelligence gathered by the National Security Agency. A more detailed report on the intelligence, ordered by President Obama, will be published in the next three weeks, though much of the detail — especially evidence collected from “implants” in Russian computer systems, tapped conversations and spies — is expected to remain classified.

    In the most amusing twist, even the NYT admits that “despite the fanfare and political repercussions surrounding the announcement, it is not clear how much real effect the sanctions may have.”

    And while we are confident Putin is thoroughly amused at this moment by Obama’s last ditch effort to poison US-Russian relations, we eagerly await the Russian response.

    From the US Treasury

    Issuance of Amended Executive Order 13694; Cyber-Related Sanctions Designations

    Additionally – potentially unrelated:


    Bloomberg reports that The FBI and Homeland Security Department will release a report Thursday with technical evidence intended to prove Russia’s military and civilian intelligence services were behind hacking attacks during this year’s presidential campaign, according to a U.S. official.

    The documentation will be offered in tandem with sanctions that the Obama administration announced Thursday in retaliation for the breach of Democratic National Committee e-mails as Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump were campaigning for the White House. The Russian government, which has denied responsibility for the hacking, has vowed to respond to any new sanctions with unspecified counter-measures.

    The joint report will include newly declassified information exposing the internet infrastructure that Russia used in the cyberattacks, including malware and computer addresses, according to the official who asked asked not to be identified before the report is made public.

    The release is intended to serve two purposes: to help prove the Russian government carried out the hacking while also frustrating officials in Moscow by exposing some of their most sensitive hacking infrastructure, the official said.

    And now we await as Putin retaliates, which he will momentarily, just as promised

     Anticipating the sanctions Wednesday, Russia accused Obama of acting out of spite, and pledged retaliation.

    “People in the White House need to understand clearly that if Washington really takes new hostile steps, then it will receive a response,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a video statement.

    As The New York Times reports,

    The sanctions were also intended to box in President-elect Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump has consistently cast doubt that the Russian government had anything to do with the hacking of the D.N.C. or other political institutions, saying American intelligence agencies could not be trusted and suggesting that the hacking could have been the work of a “400-pound guy” lying in his bed.

    Mr. Trump will now have to decide whether to lift the sanctions on the Russian intelligence agencies when he takes office next month, with Republicans in Congress among those calling for a public investigation into Russia’s actions. Should Mr. Trump do so, it would require him to effectively reject the findings of his intelligence agencies.

    Obama’s executive order is below.

          • First of all Day 1, Donald J Trump is going got lock down the porous borders. The he will decide who gets back in. Trump is an executive that runs a business, and the Government is a shoddy Failed Business that needs a good kick in the ass. Get rid of all the Obama Dead Wood and Knee Grows that do nothing but take up space. See ya!! Close many departments of waste.

            Russia and Putin will be glad finally to deal with Trump. Obama is a crazed psychopath hell bent on creating a legacy to cover up his total mass incompetence and failure.

                  Billionaire globalist George Soros has penned a panicked rant in which he decries President-elect Donald Trump as a “would be dictator” who threatens the future of the new world order.

        • Tip:

          Always wear safety glasses in the woods. Sooner or later youre going to poke your eye on a branch.

          Before a long trek pack your ass crack with lubricant to stave off diaper rash.

          Climbing is extremely hard on your ankles and knees. If you fall out of practice, you have to start training your body again from the very beginning.

          Youre not prepared if you have a disgusting fucking fat gut hanging out of your shirt you fucking fatass.


      2. More lists. Honey do list. Honey do this. Honey do that.

        Buy lots of honey. Check to be sure it is real. Real honey doesn’t run, it makes a droplet. Unless you poor it out. Just drop a tiny bit to see if it balls up or flattens out. There are people adding corn syrup. Look for the real deal.

        Get bulk teas and spices at herbco.com

        Do a liver cleanse. Milk Thistle is a good one. You can buy gelatin capsules, too.

        Take care of yourself. Start growing parsley and mint. It is easy. Mint can be invasive, best in pots or some type of container or raised bed.
        Did you know that Apple Cider Vinegar with honey and filtered water kept in your fridge and drunk through out the day can improve digestion, help you from tooth decay, clear up skin conditions, and more. Drink before meals and in between, as well.


        • Great advice, B from CA

          Also remember honey for healing.
          “The very old practice of treating deep wounds with honey or granulated sugar has been studied in controlled situations, including the treatment of diabetic ulcers, infected deep wounds following heart surgery, and wounds of lepers. The treatment eradicates bacterial infections better than some antiseptics, and accelerates healing without scarring, or with minimal scarring. The sugar regulates the communication between cells, and optimizes the synthesis of collagen and extracellular matrix.” -Ray Peat, PhD

        • I never buy honey at the supermarket. I always buy from local people.

      3. The big fraud Obama is controlled by the warmongering bastards. The same bastards whose intent is to kill us all. His puppet masters are pleased with his treachery. He is a soul less despicable excuse of a human being. A public rebuttal is media muted. Just as evil as the Bush-Clinton crime cabal. I despise the compulsive liar.

        • The filthy dirty rotten Kenyan jihadist won’t be happy until he starts WWIII. The world continues to be a very dangerous place, on the brink of world war, until the madman squatting in The People’s WH is gone. The insane hussein has THREE MORE WEEKS to wreak havoc. This madman is crazy enough to do ANYTHING up to the last MINUTE. Stay vigilant and be safe!

          • The ape-in-chief is just showing his sorry ass every way he can before he leaves on Jan. 20th. Trump will most likely scrap these and all other sanctions against Russia. Putin has decided not to retaliate, at least for now. That’s an overture to Trump. Stand strong, Russia. Jan. 20th is coming and things will become different.

      4. I’ve seen a lot of people blaming Putin and Russia but I haven’t seen proof. The heads of the intelligence agencies have indicated they are certain that Putin interfered in the election. They are political appointees and will say what Obama wants them to say. Russia has non-nuclear weapons they can employ which can cause problems here. Hopefully, it won’t get to this.

      5. He is doing everything he can to destroy his LEGACY………which he never had.

      6. Mr. trump will have to reject the findings of the U.S. intelligence agency. Hell yea, reject alright. Kick the lying bunch of Kennedy killing Bush men to the curb. The SOBs couldn’t intercept a nationwide planned riot in malls, but they caught the Russians, bull shit.


        • B from CA, damn right. I’ve never had BLIND FAITH in any govt. agency, especially CIA, and never will. The ape-in-chief needs to shut his stupid black mouth and pack his bags. Jan. 20th can’t get here soon enough.

      7. Your add for a sexy Romanian wife is ok. But most Romanian women are nice old fashioned ladies, not “sexy” broads with fake looking breasts. I like these people. One very nice family was a neighbor. While most American born mothers allowed their kids to walk home alone, there was grandma or mama waiting outside the school every single day no matter what. I respect that.


        • hell, i need one of those!…..maybe TWO…..wait….i had plenty of time to think on that in the last 3 seconds…..never mind….i guess i’ve had enough spankin’s for one lifetime.

          • the last one left me on the side of the road, naked, and bleeding……..from an orifice.

            • Damn BCOD, Don’t ya know, NEVER date a woman that can kick yer ass! 🙂

              • BCOD, didn’t realize until after his “side of the road sex” with that tramp, that She was really a He. lol This the coined name Buttcrackofdoom was hatched.

      8. 0K So if the Rusky’s fubared our election, the whole election is a sham, 0Bama declares the election invalid, and…we must install Hillary ugh whoops I mean we must have a new election. Heard in the background…20 million bolts being racked simultaneously.

        This is one of the most dangerous things I have ever seen this dick tator do. The Dems short memory allows them to forget they rigged the Democratic Convention. An act which IMHO disqualifies Hitlery for the presidency. If the dem/commie/progressives were willing to rig their own primary election, are they willing to wreck the Presidential election as well?

      9. Well let’s see the proof Russian hacked the system, or I guess that is too much of a secret for us dumb sheep to see or understand.
        Very obvious Obama is creating one headache after another for Trump, this action, Israel non-vote etc.
        Little media coverage on the fact he has freed hundreds of dope dealers, banned oil drilling and layers of regulations.
        Obama just designated two more Massive ‘National Monuments.
        1.35 acres in Utah and 300,000 acres in Nevada, what can be done with these ‘public lands’ once designated National Monuments isn’t much, screws the hunters once again.

      10. Well, if he is going to do that how about all those reported Russian troops here in the USA?

      11. As we all know the CIA has throughout its history enforced free elections throughout the globe supporting, “Truth, Justice and the American Way”. Anything to the contrary is foreign propaganda that is UnAmerican.

      12. Been by the one in Centreville Maryland many times. The Russians would be walking the fence perimeter and a bunch of us would ride by (hooking school)and lob cans of Budweiser over the razor wire. They’d pick them up hold them up and grin.

        • Should of traded ’em for some of their Baltika 9 beer, that stuff is 9% straight alcohol.

          • You couldn’t hang around too long near the perimeter or the head man would call the sheriff. But back then we’d pretty much drink whatever we could get our hands on.

            • I worked with a Russian in key west that told me if they only had beer they would put a couple of squirts of insecticide in it for more kick.

      13. O’Nero just passed on being merely stupid-he went the full Monty and went Full Retard.
        Where is the ‘effin’ proof??!?!?
        Kennedy did it in front of the UN to get Krushev to move-he did but was stopped by one vote in a sub.
        Reagan compromised a bit of our intelligence capability by providing evidence that the Soviets shot KAL 007 down.
        O’Nero? Nada, nothing-nothing but more bullshit and blather.
        20th of Jan can’t get here quick enough.

        • What do we expect from the most transparent administration in our nation’s history, anyway? Transparency? Evidence? Honesty?

      14. Trump only holds a sense of entitlement. From asshole little rich boy to crybaby adulthood. He doesn’t give a shit about anything but his name. Half our kids will die in the wars he will create. Mark these words. It will happen.

        • AAA, if you had said those words about Hillary instead, I would agree. No one really knows for sure what to expect from Trump just yet, but we’re hoping for the best. Your moniker fits you.

      15. They will start WWIII…..Trump will never be inaugurated…..These evil psychopathic monsters in the WH are on the verge of destroying the world. Pray.!!!!

      16. Not quite on subject:
        Jan 21, 2017…George Soros indited for sedition…one can hope.

        ht tp://www.cnbc.com/2016/12/29/soros-trump-is-a-con-artist-and-would-be-dictator.html

        • I think Soros is going to have some federal issues arise in 2017. Hope springs eternal.

      17. I’m still waiting to see any proof of all this Russki espionage, even the CIA is refusing to go on the record to Congress about it. Hasn’t stopped Obama, though.

        • Smokey, I agree. The CIA are the same people who claimed Saddam Hussein had ties to Al-Qaeda, had WMDs, and was partially responsible for 9/11. There was never any proof presented for the Al-Qaeda links or involvement in 9/11 nor were any WMDs found in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. The ape-in-chief needs to STFU and start packing his bags.

      18. Just a note from the past. Not that elites have learned any of this… but they will, long or short:

        Plutarch – who died in 120 A.D. – said:
        “An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics.”

        And Aeschylus (525 BC – 456 BC)
        “Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.”

        Horace said (65 – 8 BC), “you can drive nature out with a pitchfork, she will nevertheless come back.“

        2,000 years… and STILL the elite have ZERO clue of these basics.

      19. Just soo fuck obola.He should be considering pardoning himself and not thinking about pardoning billary.

        • Ahhh WD, sipping some SMOOOOTH sweet, wonderful, make you want a bunch more wheesky. Damn this stuff is the best I have ever had! JD or any other is rotgut, cooked beyond proof limit (my limit of 60 out of the pipe), to make a buck and be greedy instead of making the BEST product, even the charcoal bullshit can’t filter out the BITE of mass procuced shit whiskey. All my friends absolutely LOVE this stuff and rate it WAY over JD. That is the truth and you can say what you want BUT wheesky conosuirs agree lol. Give me an addy and I will send you a sample 🙂

          • Maybe if you understood the process you would know more. Does JD use grains or extracts? If they use grains then are the sprouted or crushed? If they are sprouted, do they cut the sprouts off before mashing? Thats a lot of work my man for a mass produced product. Extract is expensive but much more consistent and less crap by products. Any dumbass can make whiskey, It takes a man with morals and a lot of care to make GOOD whiskey. If I was on the books I would take on JD all day long! It would be a comedy show! The laugh would be on JD because 100% of people tested prefer mine lol!

            • Ever have your liver checked? That’s the last filtration system of your home brew you know. Drink a lot of water daily to flush your system.
              Ma ma ma ma moderation. lol

            • Oh,so fuck this shit!I tried during the holiday season to be nice/reasonable,all that nonsense but this is a straight out declaration of war,your trenches ain’t deep enuff old man,get digging!

              First off,the battery acid for your solar system does not whiskey make,but,as you said,any dumb ass can mistake it for whiskey!

              The wincing looks/painful expressions your friends make when drinking this pig swill is NOT a statement of liking it,though in your brain addled mind can see your confusion,your taste test gives all new meaning to “blind taste tests”as your friends blinded by this bathtub rotgut,!The reason you see them no more is they are now literally blind and can’t find your hovel!

              As I said,perhaps Kitty Dukkakis would drink it,but then,she was also known to drink rubbing alcohol,a vast improvement over your toxic/vile/paint remover!

              You obviously posted this nonsense while brain dead on this swill,the only Hager songs worth a damn were either the Montrose era with Bad Motor Scooter/Rock Candy ect.,only solo song that gets a pass tis Heavy Metal.I will put down this bad taste due to toxic(can’t even call it alcohol)poisoning!

              In closing,(got a small gig today)will say that this is only the beginning,a first salvo as it were,so get digging old man and star loading with some of your federal,Because,well….”This Is War”!

            • Ah Genius there’s just no reaching the unbeliever. He does sound to be a good sport however.

      20. There is a shooting ongoing at the university of Utah right this second

        False flag right on cue

      21. He provides no proof. Its an excuse for Hillary(another one) for losing the election. The only possible tampering was of the democratic committee which showed how bad their computer security was and how they screwed over Bernie for the nomination. The voting machines were not touched and the dems never denied the info released by Wiki leaks(too embarrassed). Obama never mentioned that he sent people over to Israel to mess with their election and tried to unseat Netananyahu..Hypocrite!

      22. Amusingly, one of the entities is Russia’s FSB, aka the Federal Security Service, i.e. the Russian spy service, to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons. Which, perhaps, means that previously the US would look the other way when known spies would enter the US.

        Uhhh ….doesn’t that kinda take the”Y” out of SPY?

      23. The world has truly flipped on its head when I trust vladimir putin more than I do the president of the united states.

        • You aint kidding,

        • Yes the Russian leader is now the good guy and the current US president is the bad guy. Fucking unreal?

      24. Usually when they start expelling diplomats it’s game over.

      25. These means nothing! I really didn’t think the lazy turd would do this much. Seeing he is Hawaii again spending Millions.

        I’m starting to think that he is trying to start something just so he can stay in office. This Bum has to go before he starts a war!

        Off Topic.
        Worked for a couple hours at the PD tonight to cover an open shift. We had winds at 30 gusting to over 40 mph. We had several short power outages, and the people in town were going nuts calling the P.D. wanting to know what we were going about it. I told them to call Con-Ed. I told them it isn’t the P.D.s responsibility to make sure the power was on. One guy had the balls to ask me why I was in the station and not on the street. Then he asked how many officer did we have checking on things I told him ONE, Me. Then he repeated why I wasn’t on the street. I told him because I have to keep answering call from people that don’t know the difference between Con-Ed and the Police. Just thinking what are they going to do if it was out for days????


        • Only time would call the cops is if live wires on streets,figure the emergency highway/power crews out and figure cops can radio em,would also use the non emergency # though if live wires can become a emergency quick.

        • Sarge, you have my sympathy having to deal with morons. Can’t fix stupid. Can’t fix sheeple.

      26. As Vocalpatriot indicated, Putin appears to be the trustworthy one. At the outset the FBI stated that DHL was responsible for the hack , yet the media carries the water for the traitor-in-chief as he clearly attempts to provoke Russia into a war. So , what’s next, Ofailure, a false flag event to start WW111?

      27. Ob5\ummer will stage a coup. Claim the election6 was rigged an6\d in6\valid Stir up a crisis an6\d say that the times are too ten6\se for him to step down6\ from power A few staged even6\ts demanding that he ban guns. turmoil and chaos needing the army to put it down and to secure the peace. Obama president for life

      28. Sgt dale, that’s the “it’s all about me” thinking nowadays. People in here get all hyped up about what kind of shit people are gonna do after 3 days without food. Normally I would agree but shitbags like that actually make me feel a little relief. That guy was so damn lazy, he’ll go a week without eating till he gets off his lazy ass by then the smart folks should be long gone doing their thing. I believe there are a lot more folks out there like him than we think.

      29. If and I use the word IF Russia hacked into the DNC and Hillary’s E mails all that was exposed is what the FBI / US Justice Department wanted for their investigation. The Democrats are not challenging the validity of the E mails just the alleged source.

        In effect, IF the charges are correct, Russia did the US voter a favor by partially exposing Clinton / DNC corruption. The reality is Hillary had enemies close to her in abundance.

        • Correctomundo! If they did it, they did a huge service for the American voter. Showing the world what the media knew and what they were hiding. Actually, it showed the media was in on the nonsense that Hillary and the DNC were doing. Gave us a good look into their operations.

      30. Putin scoffs at Obama and his lackeys(superOVERpowering stench of Idiocy), they are nobodies and incapable of forming any strategy that would be effective because they do not understand the genius of any country that has studied the USA and Western Europe in the past 50 years. The west has a huge blindspot it cannot defend at all against. and Putin isn’t playing patty cake with the USA anymore.

        Putin ( hell ANY POWER that has a nuke and the means to get it into the high atmosphere, even a suicide pilot on a commercial airplane with enough help and NO ONE WOULD BE THE WISER THAT WHERE AND WHO done it) can END America as it is known in the world, hell anyone with a NUKE that can get into high orbit can end the USA with one EMP pulse that effects 1/3 of the country (any third of the country), WWIII will be won without a single bullet exchange between the USA and anyone. ONE EMP that shorts out 1/3 of the USA will cause a cascade collapse of ALL the power grids and BANKING.
        72 hours later with no way to conduct business, no way to pump fuel or water, NO EBT cardholders getting food, and the USA will eat itself from with in by the selfish dependent nonworking non contributing ingrates and parasites rioting in the darkness, in another cascade failure of society. The owner of the ONE EMP source is WHO owns the USA right now, and the Obama administration is hedging its bets that it can “control” the effects after the fact….but other than that a MULTIPLE EMP strike in American skies, and the USA will vanish from history, falling to its own citizenry attacking itself. ANY modern day country will fall the same way, not ONE bullet traded between enemies, the population with do itself in because of its weakness and reliance on a technology that cannot work without POWER, without the INTERNET and without total control of a money source and type of its choosing. Not even the ELITE can survive this. That’s the key to TRUE FREEDOM.

      31. It now seems as though the republicans are now democrats. McCain, Ryan, and Graham, plus many more are backing the democratic agenda. Joining in against deportation of illegal immigrants, against building a wall on the Mexican border, and approving Obama’s sanctions against Russia. It appears the Republicans are going along with the democrats to make Trump ineffective as president. These bastards don’t understand the message of the American voters, or they just plain don’t give a damn. We will wait until Trump actually gets into office and things better change or they are really going to have their hands full.

      32. Kev- All of this Russian Demonization is the marching orders from Tel aviv. They hate Russia because Russia tells the truth. And calls out all their NWO scams and Israehell’s Ethnic cleansing. Thus Obama is throwing all American under the bus to save face with Israehell. Israehell is drip drip drip dissolving at the next big date is Jan 15-16th when the UN declares Palestine as a State and Israehell is slapped for their crimes against humanity.

        It is illegal to fund terrorists or Countries that partake in ethic cleansing. Thus all funding to Israehell needs to be withdrawn, because it is illegal by US Constitutional Law.

        • you Godhaters and antichrist who call yourselves Christian are going tobe sorry when you see that God is not mocked, any one any country going against Israel will be punished.watch and see

      33. This is that Kenyan’s attempt to stay in office. Americans are not going to stand for it. We had an election and it’s going to be honored, one way or the other. A collapse is better than more of Obama.

      34. Snowden revealed to the world that the USA hacks others countries. The US even had private phone conversations of Merkel and others.

      35. The hacks are reportedly from Homeland Security and not the Russians. Rejecting the liberal discourse in real time now is giving Grandpa some hope. Putin takes the moral high ground as he describes Obamas “Kitchen diplomacy”. “Gonna take you higher” Moochie, while Barrack pretends his golf ball is Putin’s head, he still slices into the rough.

      36. Shock! Shock! After eight years, Obama finally deported someone!

      37. This as stupid as it is insane! Even IF Russia leaked info about the DNC as they’re alleging, Russia should be thanked for letting us know what scumbags and corrupt pieces of shit Hillary and her almost entire democratic party are!

        So the little child Obama is attempting to make it as rough as possible for Trump to assume the presidency, even to the point of provoking WW3! Putin is WAY smarter than Obomba and will not fall for it unless he is actually physically attacked by our out of control government!

        I wouldn’t be surprised if a major false flag attack is planned during the next couple of weeks, as they (our government), will be desperate now
