President Obama has made a desperate attempt to blame Russia for hacking the Democratic National Party (DNC) in an amazing partisan abuse of power. First of all, the DNC is a PRIVATE organization and NOT party of the government. Secondly, even if we assumed Russia hacked the DNC, there would be no allegation that they tried to influence the election had the Democrats not been trying to manipulate everything and act in a corrupt manner to begin with. If the DNC was clean, there would not have been anything to hack.
Why has Obama blamed Russia? First of all, the big donors to Hillary have privately said they want an audit of where she spent $1.5 billion and they have threatened not to donate to the DNC ever again without that audit. This is all a smoke screen to try to placate the big donors – not middle class America, Spanish, or African Americans. This is the “super-rich” they are trying to distract from any audit by changing the focus to Russia.
Since the DNC is a private organization, Obama;s retaliation is an abuse of power by ejecting 35 suspected Russian intelligence operatives from the USA and imposing sanctions on Russia’s two leading intelligence services. Obama claims that the military intelligence unit known as the G.R.U. Intelligence agencies ordered the attacks on the DNC with the approval of the Kremlin.
Furthermore, Obama also announced the closing of two waterfront estates — one in Glen Cove, N.Y., and another on Maryland’s Eastern Shore . Obama says they were used for Russian intelligence activities. Demonstrating how this is all smoke and mirrors to personally help the DNC, Obama has refused to say whether these two places were specifically used in the election-related hacks he still insists took place.
Even if Russia hacked the DNC, if there was nothing there, then there would have been nothing to leak. Obama is angry that the Democrats simply got caught. If you have not seen the movie Snowden, I highly recommend it. Snowden explained that he left a market to show it was him to protect his co-workers. There is ABSOLUTELY no possible way Obama has any evidence that proves it was a hack rather than a leak. Additionally, Snowden was very concerned because the US Intelligence placed cyberbombs inside the power grids and everything of allies, just in case some day in the future they did not do and the Administration told them the US government could turn them completely dark. That is far more serious activity for which Obama maintains that Snowden is a traitor for exposing the lies of the Obama Administration.
This is a pathetic move by Obama and it really demonstrates just how dishonest his entire Presidency has been. History will remember him not only for a failed healthcare system insurers are abandoning and his support of ISIS and Al–Qaeda in a failed attempt to overthrow Syria for Saudi Arabia, but for his resurrection of the cold war and now this attack on Russia to booster the DNC and distract their donors from any audit of where the $1.5 billion went.
