As if Russia’s annexation of Crimea, their support for Assad’s brutal regime and their meddling in our elections wasn’t enough, they are now launching a series of crippling cyberattacks against the US, the likes of which the world has never before seen.
As the Washington Post reported, there is strong evidence that the Russians hacked an electrical grid in Vermont in order to switch off the electricity and ruin Christmas for thousands of ordinary Americans. Just like the reports of Russian hacking of our elections, this hack was reported by top level sources, and therefore has to be taken seriously. Reports are also coming out daily about Russian cyberattacks against US companies, government departments and the personal computers of influential public figures. Just a month ago, the Accredited Times suffered a series of vicious Russian attacks that rendered the site inaccessible to many of our readers for two whole days. This comes after Russia sailed a naval ship right through the English Channel and attempted to refuel in Spain in an unprecedented act of aggression.
Respected foreign policy experts such as John McCain have urged Obama to respond with immediate and decisive military force, in order to put an end to the havoc that these hacks have wrought across the United States. Obama has responded by expelling Russian officials from the US and beginning to amass troops on the Russian border, but many worry that his actions are too little too late. The consensus among foreign policy experts is that Obama should not rule out using tactical nukes against Russia in order to stop Putin’s aggressive expansionism in its tracks.
At the same time, numerous reports are coming out that Trump is directly working for the Kremlin, and his ongoing tweets praising Putin, such as the one below, have only added to these suspicions.
Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!

It’s time for loyal factions of the Obama administration to forcibly remove Trump and #NukeRussiaNow to save America, freedom and democracy. For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we must act now.
