The Danger of Fake News
The latest peril that repudiated Barack Obama is inflicting upon the people he has habitually betrayed, became public this week when the White House announced that the United States will impose sanctions against Russia for hacking into the server of the Democrat National Committee. The administration’s baseless threats could lead to severe consequences for the American people.
Obama’s belligerent words are troublesome for a number of reasons. First, and most importantly, the White House claims that Russians attacked the D.N.C. server in an effort to undermine the election and cause the defeat of Hillary Clinton and the Trump victory. This fake news narrative makes no sense from a Russian perspective.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton allowed Russian to gain control of 20% of U.S. uranium resources. As an American adversary, it would certainly be in the best interest of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, to aid in the election of a weak U.S. president like Hillary Clinton instead of a strong leader president like Donald Trump.
Secondly, the D.N.C. emails were made public by WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange has repeatedly and unequivocally denied that the Russian government had any involvement in the collection or distribution of the material. Email messages released by WikiLeaks were clearly embarrassing to the Democrat party, in that they illustrated the deeply corrupt nature of the party and exposed the incestuous relationship between all major news media networks and the D.N.C.
The White House seems determined to shoot the messenger for exposing the vile nakedness of the Democrat party. However, the administration is aiming at the wrong target and knows it. This is interesting since liberal Democrats have long held an affinity for Soviet style heavy-handed control of people.
The Obama administration, with the cheerful assistance of our deceitful news media, has used fake news stories to divert attention away from its incompetence before. In 2012, when the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi was attacked and our Ambassador, Chris Stevens was killed along with three other Americans, the administration perpetrated the bogus tale that the reason for the attack was a privately produced video that incited Muslim violence. Information released by WikiLeaks proved that was a lie which the media willingly repeated.
If the C.I.A. and the F.B.I. have any evidence of Russian involvement in the November election, they have been unable or unwilling to make it known, even to members of Congress. Both agencies and the White House have assured us that there was no intrusion into voting machines or state election databases, and that the outcome of the election was not altered. Therefore, we are back to public exposure of the Democrat party and its partnership with network news media as the sole justification for Obama’s provocative threats.
Electronic surveillance and spying occur between foreign states and have for many decades. The United States engages in this same type of activity in order to gather all kinds of intelligence. The responsibility for information security rests with the computer system administrators to block unauthorized intrusion.
Obama has no moral authority to decry Russian meddling in U.S. elections, when he has done the same. In 2015, Obama sent political operatives to Israel in an effort to bring about the political defeat of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The White House said that covert actions will be taken against Russian “at a time of our choosing.” With only three weeks remaining in his abysmal regime, Obama’s threats of aggression toward Russia increasingly appear to be an effort to use Putin as a scapegoat for his own public sins. Sadly, this is not the first time a Democrat has tried to use Russia for political purposes.
In 1984, Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy sent a communiqué to Soviet Secretary General, Yuri Andropov, urging restraint and patience on the part of the Soviets, claiming that President Ronald Reagan’s policies were dangerous to both nations but temporary. Kennedy said that he expected that economic problems in the United States could bring about Reagan’s defeat in 1984–a prospect that Kennedy clearly relished.
For the past eight years, Obama has been unwilling to engage Russia in any theatre despite its indiscriminate bombing of Aleppo in Syria, aiding the murderous Assad regime, and Russia’s annexation of Crimea. But now that Democrats have been exposed, repudiated and utterly defeated, the disgraced outgoing president seeks to put the United States at great risk of harm for what increasingly appears to be a misdirected personal vendetta.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised an in-kind response to U.S. aggression taken against his nation. Pray God will save America from the most ominous consequences of this latest fake news narrative perpetrated by Obama.
