Why Is Barack Obama Threatening Russia With World War III Right Before The Election?


It sure seems like an odd time to be provoking a war with Russia. As I write this, we stand just a little bit more than three weeks away from one of the most pivotal elections in U.S. history, and Barack Obama has chosen this moment to strongly threaten the Russians. As I wrote about on Friday, Reuters is reporting that Obama is contemplating “direct U.S. military action” against Syrian military targets, and the Russians have already indicated that any assault on Syrian forces would be considered an attack on themselves. The rapidly deteriorating crisis in Syria has already caused tensions with Russia to rise to the highest level since the end of the Cold War, but now Obama is adding fuel to the fire by publicly considering “an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia”. Apparently Obama believes that Russian hackers are interfering in the election and so he wants payback. The following comes from an NBC News article entitled “CIA Prepping for Possible Cyber Strike Against Russia“…

The Obama administration is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

Current and former officials with direct knowledge of the situation say the CIA has been asked to deliver options to the White House for a wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.

The sources did not elaborate on the exact measures the CIA was considering, but said the agency had already begun opening cyber doors, selecting targets and making other preparations for an operation.

Somebody should tell Obama that he is not playing a video game. A cyber attack is considered to be an act of war, and the Russians would inevitably retaliate. And considering how exceedingly vulnerable our cyber infrastructure is, I don’t know if that is something that we want to invite.

At the end of last week, Vice President Joe Biden also publicly threatened the Russians

On Friday, Vice President Joe Biden met “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd for an interview that has raised serious concern in Russia.

Without bothering to question the authenticity of the claims, Todd took the allegations of Russian hacking at face value, opening his interview with a loaded question: “Why haven’t we sent a message yet to Putin?”

After a moment of stunned silence, Biden responded, “We’re sending a message. We have the capacity to do it and it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”

When Todd asked if the public will know a message was sent, Biden replied, “Hope not.”

The Russians firmly deny that they had any involvement in the hacking, and so far the Obama administration has not publicly produced any firm evidence that the Russians were behind it.

Perhaps the Obama administration privately has some evidence, but at this point they have not shown that evidence to the American public.

So for Joe Biden to be making these sorts of threats is a very dangerous thing. The Russians are taking these threats very seriously, and they are preparing to protect their interests

‘The threats directed against Moscow and our state’s leadership are unprecedented because they are voiced at the level of the US vice president.

‘To the backdrop of this aggressive, unpredictable line, we must take measures to protect (our) interests, to hedge risks,’ a Kremlin spokesman said, according to RIA Novosti news agency.

Here in the United States, most people don’t even realize that we could be on the verge of a major conflict with Russia.

But over in Russia things are completely different. Talk of war is everywhere, and the potential for war is the number one topic in the Russian media right now. Just check out some of the recent Russian media headlines about the conflict between our two nations…

-“Bad News for Washington: Syrian Conflict Revealing New World Order

-“US anti-Russia rhetoric goes nuclear with threats of covert cyber-attacks

-“Who can win World War Three if it can be won at all?

-“In Contrast to Clinton, Trump Has No Appetite for War With Russia

And one Russian television network recently instructed their viewers to locate the nearest bomb shelter in case a nuclear war between the United States and Russia suddenly erupts…

A terrifying Russian television broadcast explicitly told civilians to find out where their nearest bomb shelter is and repeatedly asked viewers if they were ready for nuclear war.

One apocalyptic broadcast told viewers on Moscow’s state-owned TV channel NTV: “If it should one day happen, every one of you should know where the nearest bomb shelter is. It’s best to find out now.”

I don’t believe that the Russians are crazy to be thinking that a war might be coming.

To me, it almost seems as though Obama wants one.

Could it be possible that a conflict with Russia will be used to alter, change or influence the upcoming election in November?

The truth is that it isn’t going to take much for the shooting to begin. If Obama orders airstrikes against Syrian forces, the Russians have said that they will shoot back

Ash Carter has threatened Russia with “consequences”. After blowing up the ceasefire, the Pentagon – supported by the Joint Chiefs of Staff — now is peddling “potential strikes” on Syria’s air force to “punish the regime” for what the Pentagon actually did; blow up the ceasefire. One can’t make this stuff up.

Major-General Igor Konashenkov, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, sent a swift message to “our colleagues in Washington”; think twice if you believe you can get away with launching a “shadow” hot war against Russia. Russia will target any stealth/unidentified aircraft attacking Syrian government targets – and they will be shot down.

The only serious question then is whether an out of control Pentagon will force the Russian Air Force – false flag and otherwise — to knock out US Air Force fighter jets, and whether Moscow has the fire power to take out each and every one of them.

I discussed the potential for war with Russia in my latest video. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail and war with Russia will be put off…

But without a doubt the crisis in Syria is not going to be resolved any time soon because it is one giant mess. Most people don’t realize that the Syrian civil war has essentially been a proxy war between Sunni Islam and Shia Islam from the very beginning. Jihadist rebels that are being armed and funded by Saudi Arabia and Turkey are fighting Hezbollah troops that are being armed and funded by Iran. And now Turkish forces have invaded northern Syria, and this threatens to cause a full-blown war to erupt between Turkey and the Syrian Kurds. Of course ISIS is right in the middle of everything causing havoc, blowing stuff up and beheading anyone that doesn’t believe in their radical version of Sunni Islam.

It is absolutely insane that the United States and Russia could potentially go to war because of this conflict. Both sides are determined to show the other how tough they are, and one false move could set off a spiral of events from which they may be no recovery.

The American people very foolishly elected Barack Obama twice, but up until now the consequences have not been quite as dire as many had been projecting.

However, right here at the end of his second term Obama is facing a moment of truth. If he ends up dragging us into a war with Russia, the American people will ultimately bitterly regret putting him into the White House.

  1. Look, we all know they’re working hard to rig the election. If they do manage to hand it to HRC, all hell might break loose among law-abiding, decent Americans–including the military.

    So what better way to get all these Deplorables off the NWO’s back, than to start a war with another country? That’ll force them to get in line and listen to The Govt, right? They’ll say what they always say: “It’s for your safety.”

  2. So you never answered the question to the title of your article. Why title it that way if you’re not going to answer the question?

    First of all, it doesn’t guarantee WWIII if we shoot down a few of their planes and they shoot down a few of ours. They can still say, Ok let’s stop this before it escalates into something big.

    My question is why tell the world you’re going to do a cyber attack, when everyone knows Russia is only going to strengthen their security as a result. That doesn’t help your cause, and they should have known this before opening their mouth about it. No one who has any brain cells left would do that.

    Maybe it’s because the US knows it won’t matter if they strengthen their security. Maybe it’s because the US isn’t going to attack them. Maybe it’s because the US wants Russia to strike first and have their allegations that Russia is the big bad cyber criminal confirmed at the cost of US infrastructure or the election. If it’s election infrastructure that’s destroyed, and Trump is alleged to be tied into it, guess who wins.

    And since Biden said he hopes we won’t know the message was sent, maybe that’s because one won’t be sent. They can claim one was sent, and that Russia retaliated and destroyed our election infrastructure. When in reality our own “government” did it. Trump will be labeled for throwing the election, and a criminal, and be thrown in jail or his supporters abandon him. Trump is already saying the election is rigged and being thrown and rigged. Perfect. 😉 And guess who gets more support from the UN in the Syrian conflict as a result if Russia attacks us? And guess who gets to stay in office longer? Do you see how they can get rid of Trump, get Hillary in and get more support in the Syrian conflict from this?

    It’s obvious there is a reason they announced they’re thinking about attacking Russia AHEAD of time. And it’s not because it will surprise Russia more as a result, or make the task easier. They are telling everyone, because they want to fool everyone. Some kind of scheme is being set up by saying that. Or it could all be just talk, and they don’t do anything. They just want to look tough, but I doubt it since doing nothing makes them look weak and stupid. There’s my theory giving the possible answers to the question, now tell us yours.

  3. Why? It comes from the same playbook used by GW Bush during his reelection campaign. If people look back, every time the threat level was increased it was associated with something political. Bush used it to instill fear in people so they would embrace the status quo, rather than vote in someone else. That is why something like this is happening now. Any rational person knows that this escalation between the US and Russia is manufactured as there is nothing new of importance to make this escalation so imminent and so speedy. This the way to get people to vote for Hillary out of fear. After all, she is still using the slogan “would you trust him with the nuclear codes”. Well here we are, aren’t we. It seems their confidence in a Hillary win is not high, and they would do ANYTHING, for her to win. Just remember, this is a fear campaign, because any two year old knows fully the implications of actually using nukes. Russia is not going to have a preemptive strike because they are well aware of the consequences too. This whole thing is rather B movie stuff and as cheesy as Sharknado on the SyFy channel.

    • Mr. Putin will not bother with the U.S. we pose no threat to him !
      We are out gunned and out manned . You will see !

  4. ELECTIONS won’t matter a bit shortly,OR who won,CAUSE YOUR GOING TO BE INVOLVED IN A NUCLEAR WAR,and you won’t win………

  5. Well obviously, he wants to use this as some type of FF operation should Hillary begin to lose and hinge it around the Russians.

    When you do that you can use all kinds of excuses and false flag venues. Think of the fun they can have and blame it on the nefarious Russians.

    We always do these kinds of things you know.

  6. Obama is more concerned with Putin interfering with American politics than he is the liberals committing voter fraud. Jan can’t come soon enough to get rid of this buffoon in the WH. We can only hope he is not replaced with the inept Clinton.

  7. Whether its the idiot puppet Obomber or the idiot puppet Bush/Clinton, etc., the President does as he is told to do by the globalists who see the U.S. and Russia as the only thing between them and world domination. They’ll deal with china later. Right now, its kill two birds with one nuclear stone.


  8. The establishment knows that if Trump wins this their game of massive corruption is OVER! They would rather start a global thermonuclear war than to allow Trump to destroy the globalist criminal elites plan for global domination and prison for those responsible for these crimes against the world.

  9. More like it all started during the breakup of Yugoslavia. Or if you look into it further, it all started since the Cold War. The western world of globalists/elitists wants to finish off the Cold War by destroying Russia, since the Cold War ended when the Soviet Union dissolved.
