Obama + the Democrats and establishment Republicans in Congress are tripping all over themselves to push the Russia hacking narrative and introduce additional measures against Russia.
On Monday, Obama sanctioned five more senior Russian officials. Last week, Obama sent hundreds of tanks, APCs and other military equipment as well as troops to the Russian border.
On Tuesday, Congress introduced new legislation to add more sanctions on Russia in addition to the already existing economic sanctions and the Magnitsky Law that already serves as basis to sanction individuals (Obama made this law universal last year and can apply it against anybody).
One of the Democratic senators, Ben Cardin, bragged on Tuesday how he would quiz Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson on the specific provisions of the new legislation. CIA Director nominee Mike Pompeo's hearing as well as those of three or four other nominees were postponed. Other Democrats were similarly tripping and seem to be out of their minds, set to inflict maximum damage.
Also on Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted yet again there was no evidence Russia influenced the vote tallies in the election, yet continued the narrative.
let me remind you the narrative was used as a pretext for Obama to federalize the US elections last Friday in a totally unconstitutional move that denies the role of the states in US elections. Zerohedge called it a stunning last-minute power grab, which introduces secrecy in the election process that by definition is supposed to be transparent.
I am beginning to be convinced that these people were set to go to war with Russia in some manner, manufacture some sort of conflict thinking it would be limited in nature or can be controlled. The gloves seem to be off now. Anybody watching the spectacle in Congress can attest to that.
January 20 cannot come soon enough.

That, in mi opinion, is what made a Hillary victory so terrifying. The Feminist bullshit was bad enough, but there was a very real possibility of us all getting killed. They were operating under the assumption that Russia would simply surrender, that Putin would step down and we would install a puppet (like we did in Ukraine) as the new head of state.
Even assuming that the nukes didn't initially fly, we would have found that invading Russia was a lot harder than expected and we would have suffered horrendous losses and even possibly been pushed back out of Russia. That's when the nukes would fly, and we would have been the first strikers, and not the Russians. That would have been a conflict that we did not have the option of losing. Losing it would mean losing our position as top dog in the world.
This doesn't surprise me. Libtards think that they will always get what they want, and right now they hate Russia because it is pro-Christian, anti-Islam, anti-gay and it cares about its own people and culture over refugees and immigrants, but most of all because it doesn't kow-tow to Washington.
Fortunately for us, Trump understands that the real enemy is China and that we have a lot in common with the Russians and very little in common with the Chi-Coms.

I think an apt analogy would be the football quarterback with great SAT scores and groupies lining up to suck his cock vs the school bully who deals drugs and has failed every grade twice...
Both are alphas in their own spheres, and neither wants to mess with the other.
Every action carries an opportunity cost, and picking a fight with the bully doesn't really carry a lot of benefits compared to the risks.
U.S. can't crush Russia through sanctions. They couldn't crush a bunch of goat fuckers in Syria...Where the fuck is ISIS getting money to buy ammo and jeeps? Why hasn't the combined might of the CIA, NSA and Mossad been able to trace ISIS source of funds, or their arms dealers?
Unless of course ISIS serves the purposes of TPTB...anyway that's off topic.
And I'm not sure just how many sanctions you can impose before Russia deems it to be casus bell and just starts fucking shit up in Eastern Europe. Then you've got a real shit show on your hands.
