President Obama will announce “punishment” against Russia today in the last days of his Presidency for the as yet unproven allegations that Russia was engaged in hacking activities that helped Donald Trump win the United States election in November. Now, perhaps at the press conference to announce this punishment, President Obama will provide some serious evidence that Russia did indeed do this, but we at Common Sense Conspiracy consider this unlikely. Why, you say? Because this was never really what it appeared to be from the beginning.
During President Obama’s eight years in office, Vladimir Putin and his Russia have frequently embarrassed Obama on a variety of issues. From taking the other side in the Syrian conflict to the controversial actions in Ukraine, Putin has always been quick to do whatever he can to make Obama look foolish. While almost everyone recognizes that Putin has done this, Obama has continued to take the high road and act as if he has taught Putin a lesson. This is not true by anyone’s standards. Now, for all of those actions, some of which were major international intrusions, President Obama shook his head, made vague threats that everyone knew would not come to fruition, and continued to mostly just do what he was doing. But now, he’s getting tough. Why? Because he thinks that Russia caused Hillary Clinton to lose the election.
Never mind the fact that there has not been one allegation or shred of proof of actual hacking of election results. That’s not what they are insinuating. They are saying that Russia helped influence the United States’ election by revealing information it did not acquire honestly. Now, no one anywhere has debated whether the information released in WikiLeaks was true. This is actually disconcerting, because it would have made a lot more sense to deny all the way. Instead, they are admitting the corruption revealed by whoever hacked those emails is absolutely true, but it’s not fair because ordinary Americans weren’t supposed to know about it. To summarize, Russia is supposedly guilty of interfering with the American election because he revealed the corruption that was taking place within the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. They are mad because Russia revealed all of the dirty tricks that were taking place beneath the surface. These dirty tricks were not something that Americans didn’t already believe was there, they just didn’t have proof. Russia may or may not have provided proof.
In any case, all of a sudden big bad Obama thinks something must be done because the Democratic Party was supposed to dominate America for decades after the mess of the George W. Bush years and there’s just no way that Americans could have voted against his party unless an evil person from halfway across the world were somehow involved.
