Now President Obama is ordering a "full review" of hacking by the Russians during this election. Now we're talking. Update!

Look I can't be manipulated, threatened, or bought. Who do you think I am, Donald Trump?

President Barack Obama has ordered a "full review" of hacking-relating activity aimed at disrupting last month's presidential election and he expects that report before he leaves office on Jan. 20, a top White House official said Friday. 

“We may be crossed into a new threshold and it is incumbent upon us to take stock of that, to review, to conduct some after-action, to understand what this means, what has happened and to impart those lessons learned," Obama counterterrorism and homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco told reporters at a breakfast arranged by the Christian Science Monitor.

U.S. intelligence officials have blamed the Russian government for pre-election hacking of Democratic officials and political committees. Several Democratic senators have asked Obama to declassify more details about the attacks and why the U.S. concluded the Russians were behind them.

Now, now we are getting somewhere.

And it's a good thing that President Obama is pressuring Homeland Security to fast track this investigation because we can essentially guarantee that Trump will put the brakes on it once he takes office.

Why you might ask?

Totally non-homoerotic photoshop of Trump riding bitch behind his puppet master Vladimir Putin.
Oh I think we all KNOW why.

Update: The Washington Post just dropped a bomb!

Courtesy of WaPo:  

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter. 

Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances. 

“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” said a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators. “That’s the consensus view.”

Well I think makes it clear beyond a reasonable doubt, that our current president elect ONLY "won" this election because a foreign country chose him for us.

Now pay attention to this part:  

The CIA shared its latest assessment with key senators in a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill last week, in which agency officials cited a growing body of intelligence from multiple sources. Agency briefers told the senators it was now “quite clear” that electing Trump was Russia’s goal, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.

To be clear this means that key Senators knew BEFORE the election that Russia was helping to position Trump for the win, and did not tell the American people, allowing them instead to go to the polls unaware that the Kremlin was pulling their strings.

    I'm thrilled. This needs to come out. Once BO is out of the WH, the GOP will be silent. So much interfered with the election. Everything that did needs to be put out there for the public to see so that everyone finally gets why it is Trump "won." Now, the most psycho of Trump voters won't ever believe anything that doesn't make Trump look good, but there is hope that some others will start to get a few brain cells working when they pay attention to the Cabinet/admin choices, and then when this report comes out they may be mire willing to listen.

    Trump, we know, is disinterested in the details of being president, but I'm betting that not being in on the daily briefs helps him keep lying (he'd lie anyway, but this helps) that ridic lie about Putin/Russia not being in on the election hacks. He'd never admit they were until once inaugurated--wouldn't do anything like that until it was 100% too late for him to be stopped from being pres--but he knows that we realize he's privy to any intel and that he has to lie if he sits in on the briefs. Plus it must be at least a little embarrassing to see the people in-the-know in passing and have to act like he doesn't believe in the hacking, and if he sat in on all the briefs he'd look like even more of a piece of scum for continuing the lie.

    Man, I hope someone eventually can come out and say what exactly was known that was told to Trump, and when. I want his record of lying to be all out there on a spreadsheet and on TV.

      5:08 is butthurt because his hero Trump has already reneged on the promise to "lock her up". Apparently Trump voters are unaware that a person must be tried and convicted of a crime before punishment is meted out. Your hero is going to find himself impeached and probably will resign or be evicted from the White House in more disgrace than what Nixon left with.

    4. Trump couldn't be bothered with the details of the office. Daily Briefings? Pshaw. Business Conflicts? Bwa ha ha, make me.

      He's too busy for doing the job because he's having twitter wars with SNL, and making personal attacks on private citizens.

    Trump owes 650 million and the two big name loaners are China Bank and Goldman Sachs, who he's putting into so many Cabinet and other positions. We know how Trump operates. Debt is a game. And he always owes massive amounts of money that he finds a way to get forgiven. When he leaves office, I am betting his debts to GS will have been wiped clean. GS might even pay off his other debts. The debt will be chump change in comparison to what GS gets out of having so much control over things. It may not appear so on record for a while that the debt is gone, but Trump will leave the WH debt-free.

      The Senate Majority Leader was told that Russia was meddling in the presidential election, and he responded by turning his back on his own country so that a man who will be a puppet of a foreign regime could have a better chance of winning the White House.

      When Mitch McConnell was offered a choice between partisan politics and his country, he chose partisanship. Anyone who thinks that this man will ever allow a Republican investigation into Russian election interference is kidding themselves.

      Though his opposition, Sen. McConnell made himself complicit in the Russian takeover of the White House. Mitch McConnell wanted Republicans to get the White House back so badly that he sold out his own country to get it.

      America has a new Benedict Arnold, and he is the Majority Leader of the United States Senate. If the Trump administration leads to the worst case scenario for America, Mitch McConnell will be one of the Republicans who will deserve the most blame.

      The old man led the obstruction against President Obama as soon as President Obama took his first oath!

      What should happen to McConnell? I have some ideas. But first, I'd love to see him stripped stark naked, tarred and feathered and run out of Washington D.C. via one of its main road systems!

      I know, I know - he's too old to run, but he could be made to walk - slowly - making the punishment get to him mentally!

    Top House Republican Unveils Plan To Gut Social Security

    Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Social Security, released a plan Thursday to reform Social Security that would drastically reduce benefits. The bill would make the program less of a universal earned benefit and more of a means-tested safety net that aims only to provide basic support to the poorest retirees and disabled workers.

    In order to close Social Security’s long-term funding gap, Johnson would make Social Security’s benefit formula less generous for all but the lowest earners, rapidly raise the retirement age and reduce the annual cost-of-living adjustment, among other changes designed to save money.

    Johnson also proposes changes that would cost the program money, like an increased minimum benefit for the poorest retirees ― provided they have a long history of covered employment ― and the elimination of income taxes on Social Security.

    Under Johnson’s plan, a middle-class 65-year-old claiming benefits in 2030 ― one with average annual earnings of about $49,000 over 30 years of covered employment ― would experience a 17 percent benefit cut relative to what the program currently promises them, according to the Social Security Administration’s chief actuary. A 65-year-old with the same earnings history claiming benefits in 2050 would experience a 28 percent benefit cut compared to current law.

    1. Ohio has inserted a minimum wage bill into a bill about puppies to forbid cities from raising the minimum wage or offering paid sick leave.

      Yeah, Republicans are all about PUNISHING people. They must really HATE their constituents. Maybe because no matter what they do, the dumb fucks continue to re-elect them.

      "The anti-worker measures were quietly inserted into a bill regulating where pet stores can buy dogs and cats on Wednesday. The maneuver surprised even state Rep. Denise Driehaus, the ranking Democrat on the state House finance committee, where the language was added."

      "McCarthy said he wasn’t surprised to see the restrictions on the minimum wage, since Cleveland leaders had asked the legislature to pass it. But he said he was surprised that the measure was broadened to block municipalities from enacting laws that would require employers to provide certain worker benefits, such as paid sick leave.

      McCarthy noted that the legislature’s attempts to erode local autonomy go against the philosophy of Republicans, who traditionally champion local control and weak central government.

      “It used to be a conservative principle that the government that’s closest to you is the government that can govern best. But that’s not the case here in Ohio,” McCarthy said. “There’s been a significant erosion of local control here over the years. Frankly, if the federal government did to the state what states do to the cities, the very same folks that just passed this law would be outraged.” "

      To my mind, Republicans have always been against the American people but now they feel enervated to act on it openly. Pretty soon there will be no minimum wage anywhere, no unions, no life-saving regulations. If we give the GOP enough time and power, there will be no planet.

    In our state, Washington, we use paper ballots and have mail-in voting. The reason these ballots were rejected, was because the signatures on the ballots did not match the voter's signature on file.

    The newspaper did not say who these rejected ballots were for. My point? Voter fraud can exist for either party.

      Well, Trump was out there today with his rally and keeping everyone hyped up, like he has been all week or so and will continue to do until the inauguration. I know he loves the adulation, but I see him also doing the rallies as a "possession is 9/10ths of the law" kind of thing, sealing it in people's minds--when he feared the recount--that he really had won: he went out and acted like he had. Ad the rallies keep his voters from hearing all that he is doing to hire billionaires and people who want to dismantle all that protects the little guy. And he is worried about any hacking and connections to Russia findings coming out. No matter what, he will not admit to Putin being involved before he's inaugurated. I think one reason he doesn't get the daily briefings is so that he can deny and not feel like he's lying.

      His voters, well, they're a pathetic bunch. But hopefully some will open their eyes. With this CIA conclusion there should be people who hear what has been happening. A few. I wish more.

      Anon at 7:47 pm. You've forgotten. Hillary Clinton won the election by over 2.6 million votes. That's a lot of votes. Vote counting shenanigans gave this election to Russia and their puppet, Donald Trump.

      If Hillary won the election, Beagle, She would be the one being sworn in, wouldn't she? Presidential elections are determined by winning states and their electors, as it has always been. Trump won. Suck it with your falsehoods.

    OMGosh....this is bad. Very Bad. The entire republican party must be shamed out of our buildings. This is beyond espionage, treason, and out right traitors. Can anyone imagine our ancestors that fought in all previous wars here and around the world thoughts right now? I can and they be PISSED OFF.

      I know. But ever since Bush v Gore the GOP has gotten away with so much, and this time it got worse exponentially. Where are the GOP who have any integrity? I know Lindsey Graham did say today or yesterday that he wanted an investigation (and he'd better have--after the election he was mad that Trump said he'd not be going after Hillary), but I didn't hear people from the GOP agreeing. I think McCain may have. I'll need to go read the news on this.

      That's because the Democrats let them.

      They never fought, they just rolled over and took it.

      Obama had the House and the Senate the first two years of his administration and he squandered it.

      Democrats are too polite, too politically correct, always compromising and "finding common ground" and crossing the aisle in the spirit of bipartisanship. While the GOP dig in their heels and obstruct until they get their way. So in the end it doesn't matter if the Republicans are the majority or the minority, they still call the shots and get what they want.

      Democrats need to grow a backbone, a set of balls and learn to kick some ass. They need to stop being so nice. Call a spade a spade and call a liar a LIAR.

      They need to start using the GOP playbook, even if it's dirty.

      They can start with Merrick Garland. January 3, 2017. It's all be laid out exactly how it should go down. All Joe Biden and the Democrats need to do is follow the step by step and put Merrick Garland on the bench. Then they can give the Republicans the middle finger and say, that's what you're going to see for the next four years, you fuckers.

      They shouldn't pull any punches in fear of retaliation. Because they're going to get it no matter what they do. No amount of playing by the rules is going to avoid it. So they might as well get down and dirty and give more than they're going to get.

      It's pretty pitiful when a Republican like Lindsay Graham shows more chutzpah than the Democrats.

      These are the times I wish the Democrats had supported Alan Grayson (instead of undermining him) so that he could be in the Senate to shove it to Mitch McConnell every chance he had. That's what we need right now.

    Those 6 senators who signed the letter to Obama last week to release the intel they knew of must have been going mad having to keep their mouths shut on whatever amount of info they had.

    1. Anonymous8:59 PM

      hmmm. John McCain?

    2. Anonymous3:21 AM

      Those six senators... in order for evil to prevail good men need do nothing I count the as worse traitors than the ones who knew and kept their mouth's shut for gain. THEY should have stood up and SCREAMED at the top of their collective lungs about this shit.
      Fuck playing nice with the GOP, we did that for 8 miserable years and it has gotten us nothing but that thing's election.

      Yes indeed and duh too.

  26. "Liberty University is seeking a permit to build an on-campus shooting range, less than a year after the school’s board of trustees also approved a policy that allows students to carry concealed weapons in dorms. According to the proposal, the shooting range would be the first National Rifle Association-approved facility on a U.S. campus."

    My immediate take on this is that Hillary Clinton was definitely the best candidate for the presidency, if Putin was so afraid to have her in office that he and his thuggish regime meddled so obviously to get their "pal" Donald Trump elected. "Pal" should more likely read Putin's "puppet."

    What has been a nightmare since Election Day has now become a nightmare of global proportions. Trump and his handlers knew about this illegal meddling; their actions were pure treason.

      When the Comey brouhaha began at the same time that more information was coming to light about the Russians and our election, the New York Times opted to focus on Comey's false flags rather than the real news, that the Russians were helping Trump become president. Poor decision on the part of the Times. We had been faithful subscribers for years but we cancelled our subscription then.

    I kind of curious to hear what Sarah Palin "thinks" about this turn of events?

  30. Anonymous6:49 AM

    Alright, let's use our reading for content skills: the CIA assessment wasn't leaked. What the WaPo story is about is what anonymous sources claim is in the assessment. Big difference. Pres Obama should declassify the assessment so we can judge for ourselves what evidence was presented, and that's exactly what Sen Wyden and other senators who were in the meeting about the assessment and wrote to the president are asking. I would submit their letter is a big hint to us that what is being reported and what was really in the assessment may not match up.

    1. Anonymous7:05 AM

      The difference between reporting based on anonymous, evidence-free claims and real leaked documents should be too obvious to have to explain. But that's the world we live in today. People on both sides are so eager to believe the worst they give up their critical thinking skills.

  31. Too late.

    It needed to happen before Dec. 18. Dec. 19 is when the Electoral College meets.

    By January 20 it's too late.

    We already know the House Republicans and House Senate have no intention of impeaching Trump no matter what he does. They are already turning a blind eye to his business conflicts and his atrocious cabinet picks. They luuuuuuv Trump and won't do anything against him.

    So if the Electoral College doesn't stop him, no one can.

    Our only hope is for so much to come out that so plainly paints a picture of corruption and incompetence that there are at least 37 electors willing to vote for anyone but Trump. There's already one we know of. We need 36 more men or women of integrity and courage who love their country more than their party.
