Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Friday that he would not retaliate against the round of U.S. sanctions imposed by the Obama administration. In a statement, Putin said that while his government denies the accusations made by American intelligence agencies, he would not kick U.S. diplomats out of the country.

“Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-U.S. relations based on the policies of the Trump administration,” he said. “We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of U.S. diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin.”

In addition to ordering sanctions, President Obama announced Thursday that 35 Russian diplomats would be escorted out of the country for their role in the alleged hacks.

“All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions,” Obama said. “Such activities have consequences.”

Putin has been known to retaliate when hit by sanctions; the fact that he’s not doing so this time indicates that he is merely waiting for Donald Trump to take office on January 20. Trump has expressed doubts about the hacks and said last week that it was “time for our country to move on to bigger and better things.”

On Friday, Trump praised Putin for his restraint.

“Great move on delay (by V. Putin) — I always knew he was very smart!” Trump tweeted.

Here, Trump is just messing with Obama. The president knows where he stands on this issue. He knows he could have consulted with Trump and come up with a mutually agreed-upon solution here. He knows that Trump wants to pursue a different kind of relationship with Russia than the one he forged. By taking this kind of action, Obama is not only exercising his right as President, he’s deliberately trying to extend his influence into Trump’s tenure.

There’s no particular reason to debate whether or not Russia was really behind the hacks. Without top-secret security clearance, we’re never going to have the information we need to make an informed judgement call. But even if we assume that everything the Obama administration is saying is true, what is the game plan here? For a self-proclaimed man of peace, Obama can’t seem to grasp the wisdom of de-escalating tensions with a nuclear-armed country.

Oh, but Trump is the one we can’t trust with the codes. Okay. Sure.

(The accusation that Russia Hacking the US Elections is a LIE.  What about
all the Election Frauds on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats that
were massive.  Detroit is a prime example.  You will never hear about this
on the mainstream "Fake" news.)

I agree.

And i find it "interesting" that we have 17 intelligence agencies! I am so cynical of our govt, it's pathetic. I have been following such things as waste in govt.. govt spending millions on... oh, i don't know.. the mating habits of fruit flies was one. I heard of--and no joke, how shrimp do on a treadmill! That is one i know of. There are so many others but they escape me.. need to read Tom Coburn's book again, i guess

and we're supposed 2 believe we need 17 "intelligence" agencies..?

So anyway, i heard that all 17 of them agree we've been hacked by Russia. Well, again, my cynicism comes into play: Aren't most govt agencies run by Democrats? Don't most people who work for them call themselves Dems?

forget it. I am not buying all this nonsense. But I also don't buy it that Putin is being Christian by not retaliating. He is just being Putin... a very dangerous man who has murdered journalists and done other terrible things. He is just trying to use whomever he can 2 get whatever he wants.. I wonder if Trump realizes that? certainly hope so

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/12/29/republican-congressman-says-russians-did-the-medias-job-by-exposing-accurate-information/

Arizona Republican congressman Trent Franks recently appeared on MSNBC to talk about the allegations that Russians hacked into the DNC, and released information that effected the election. While many argue over whether there is substantial evidence of this, Franks is looking upon the Russians with favor, saying that in a way they did a job the media wasn’t.

“I’m all for doing what’s necessary to protect the election here, but there’s no suggestion that Russia hacked into our voting systems or anything like that. If anything, whatever they may have done, was to try to use information in a way that may have affected something that they believe was in their best interest.

“But the bottom line, if they succeeded – if Russia succeeded – in giving the American people information that was accurate, then they merely did what the media should have done.

Franks words have created more than a bit of controversy.

Obama has recently taken to punishing the Russians for these alleged hacks by imposing sanctions, and ejecting intelligence agents from the country. President-elect Trump, however, still believes that the Russians had no part in the election whatsoever.

Even if the Russia Hacking is true. That did a job that the media will not do.
Exposing the satanic evils that the Democratic Leadership are involved with.
Such as Pizzagate.
