Congressional hearings trying to get to the bottom of the repeated Russian hacking accusations revealed some pretty eye-opening facts on Thursday. The hacking is now being called an “act of war” by heads of intelligence agencies as well as Senator John McCain. This represents a really scary coalition between party lines in America to justify an upcoming showdown with Russia. But you won’t find much mainstream news coverage about this even more interesting (and frightening) fact. President Barack Obama, who only has two weeks left before he is no longer in his current position of authority, has deployed United States Special Forces along the Lithuania-Russia border. What for, you ask? Oh, yes, the unthinkable. There is growing fears that NATO might strike Russia in some sort of misguided punitive action, and Donald Trump may be just days too late to stop it. Would Obama approve something that might launch an all-out war with Russia just days before he leaves office? And what would happen if he did? Could this be the moment so many conspiracy theorists have been waiting for when Obama somehow finds a last ditch effort to declare martial law and stay in power?
What do you think? And did you hear this on your local news? We’re betting not.
