Washington Post: Obama’s secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin’s election assault By Greg Miller, Ellen Nakashima and Adam Entous
Obama also approved a previously undisclosed covert measure that authorized planting cyber weapons in Russia’s infrastructure, the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated if the United States found itself in an escalating exchange with Moscow. The project, which Obama approved in a covert-action finding, was still in its planning stages when Obama left office. It would be up to President Trump to decide whether to use the capability.

He never liked Clinton or forgave her nasty racist run against him in 2008. He was only half-hearted in his support of her and Bill not at all. Like in 2000 the Clinton's managed to destroy the Dem. candidate. She, by last year thought she had "EARNED" the right to be President and had an extremely arrogant and haughty attitude about it. Both, Obama and her though represented a Liberal elite that was what we have come know as LIMO Liberals and that perception doomed her in 2016 a change year. Now the rest of us will pay the price NOT the Clinton's they can just walk away to one of their several mansions.

Obama was conflicted between bold action and taking an ameliorative position. Most of the times he did the latter as we know. He was about towing the tough line of being the first black president and consequently having to maintain a consistent and seamless calmness in order to provide proof of his validity and consequently be an example for other blacks and an example of black political validity. Also it was about being under the severe scrutiny of America's brutal racism and bigotry which he brought out of the worst dank part of the country, it's deep sewer of human darkness. Obama was not about setting trends in policy. He was about going by the book and attempting to maintain a semblance of democracy in the process. He broke with that trend in his last year as he issued more appropriate executive orders to overwhelm the misery inflicted by the hysterical bigoted Tea Party Congresses. Underneath Obama was an Wall Street pimp as we know. They all are of course, its just that they choose between different sides of the Wall Street. Trump sucks at the trough of oil and comically, coal. He knows the Pennsylvania is huge in a GOP national election although with hacking able to alter data in all kinds of ways favorable to Trump and the GOP, what the fuck difference does it make. Trump could come out next week against coal and he'll still win Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Not because people are stupid which they are, but because it's all rigged now. The internet has destroyed voting.
