Almost two months have passed form the US elections but Democrats and current / leaving White House administration can not accept the free will of the people. People have spoken against the current establishment and chose Trump. As time passes by it seams that some of them acknowledge democracy only if it suits them and their agenda.
Elections have finished. Electoral college has confirmed that Trump is the 45th president. “Ordained” protests against Trump have failed and mainstream media projections and propaganda have failed too. They failed in every way that one can fail but they can not accept it and move on.
Latest move coming from leaving White House administration is not only a final cry from a wounded “lion”, NO not at all. This is the last desperate move to try to complicate things as much as possible. With this move leaving White House administrations is putting road blocks for the coming White House administration and possible ease of relations between USA and Russia. We all know what are the benefits of possible cooperation between USA and Russia. Two super powers coming together as partners in dealing major issues on global stage and respecting each other interests. No conflict, No more invading countries, No nuclear war, settling of middle east crisis, End of the war in Syria, rising of US economy, respecting the middle class .etc So yes it sounds good but the old elite can not accept it. This is not their way. This is not their agenda. We all know what their agenda is. “From Chaos to Order” and for what? For blind profit that at the end excludes ordinary people and their needs from the Equation.
This last move of leaving White House administration is a deliberate action to provoke Russia and Vladimir Putin to react in aggressive manner towards United States making any future agreement between USA and Russia if not impossible then very hard to obtain. Also this is not just a move against Russia this is a move against Trump and people of United States. The failing elite and leaving White House administration is constructing a dangerous atmosphere that can lead the country in some serious instability and uncertainty. But that is their way. Trump presidency is openly attacked and deliberately obstructed not from some outside influence but from within. From leaving White House administration, from failing part of the Elite special interest etc.
United States Army, Intelligence Services, FBI and others must have in mind that Donald Trump is the next president of the United States of America. This is the fact and he represents the free will of the people. The duty of these government institutions is to protect the institution of the president, constitution of United States and free will of the people. These institution have the obligation and a right to do that. They must be prepared to defend their president and their people.
Now lets talk about the alleged Russian hacking
It is very odd that nobody addresses the findings and final product of those hackings. The very information disclosed. The hacking clearly showed enough data for criminal prosecutions to be taken against Hillary Clinton, some officials from the Democratic Party and other representatives of special interest and failing Elite. But as it seems nobody cares about these findings and criminal behaviors of some US citizens and its officials. Like criminal acts do not matter anymore.
Main stream media are putting their focus only to a part of a story that somebody hacked the data but what the data do show nobody gives a dine for it. Is this possible? Yes it is! They are switching the focus from what those “hacked” data are showing to us to how the data where obtained. Yes both of those are criminal behaviours but media and United States institutions can not separate one from another it must be dealt with both of them simultaneously. This could easily back fire on leaving White House administration because Trump administration can come forward with that part of the story very soon maybe sooner than 20th of January.
Regarding the Russian hacking if there are any evidence of foreign interference towards the US those accusations must be dealt without any doubt and transparently. Because much is in stake: United States image, relations between Russia and USA and much more. If it is hacking it must be done properly and perpetrators must be held accountable. But United States government and its institutions must deal with the data disclosed and what those data show.
As of Donald Trump, New White House administration will have to deal with these issues as soon as he takes office. It will be hard but as ones Kennedy said in one speech:
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard”
Statement by the President Barack Obama 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.
The FBI and Homeland Security simultaneously released a Joint Analysis Report (JNC) on the “technical details regarding the tools and infrastructure used by the Russian civilian and military intelligence Services…”

Response from TRUMP
“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” he wrote. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”
“I think we ought to get on with our lives. I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly,” Trump said. “The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind, the security we need.”
Response from Russia
The new US sanctions against Russia are another manifestation of the unpredictable and aggressive foreign policy by the Obama administration, Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin press-secretary, said.
“In our point of view such actions of the US current administration are a manifestation of an unpredictable and even aggressive foreign policy,” Peskov told the journalists.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has posted a scathing Facebook comment on US President Barack Obama’s approval of new anti-Russian measures, arguing Obama’s “bitter” and “helpless” team did a disfavor to the White House’s reputation.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has proposed expelling 35 American diplomats in response to the recent sanctions imposed by Washington.
“Russia’s Foreign Ministry and their colleagues from other agencies have proposed that President Vladimir Putin proclaim 31 employees of the US Embassy in Moscow and four diplomats from the US Consulate service in St. Petersburg as persons ‘non-grata,’” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, as cited by news agencies.
The proposal also includes a ban on using a recreation facility and storage facility used by American diplomats in Moscow, according to Lavrov. Reported by RT
“We reserve the right to retaliate, but we will not sink to the level of this irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy. We will take further moves on restoring Russian-American relations based on the policies that the administration of President-elect Donald Trump adopts,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published by the Kremlin website.
Putin said that, unlike the Obama administration, Russia will not target foreign diplomats and their families days before New Year’s celebrations.
“We will not forbid families and children from spending the New Year’s holidays at the places they are used to. Moreover, I invite the children of all American diplomats with accreditation in Russia to New Year’s and Christmas festivities in the Kremlin,” the Russian president said.
Putin said he regretted that US President Barack Obama is ending his term “in such a way,” but that he extended his New Year’s congratulations to the outgoing US president and his family nevertheless.
“I congratulate President-elect Donald Trump and the entire American people!” he concluded. – Reported by RT
