Obama secretly gave military equipment to Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine

Obama secretly gave military equipment to Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine

Judicial Watch reports that the Obama administration had secretly given military equipment to Russia after Russia invaded Ukraine.

I wonder what makes Obama’s supporters happier - the fact that he gave Russia this military aid after it invaded Ukraine, or the fact that he kept it a secret.

Of course if a Republican president did this, the so-called “peace activists” and “anti-war activists” would be livid with protest. But since Obama is a Democrat, they don’t mind at all. I’m sure they’d happily elect him for a third term if he wasn’t term limited by the Constitution.

Actually in a from behind kinda way, they are the most transparent administration ever. After they do what they do, fail at it, and try to change the subject, it is quite transparent. Denying their corrupt actions isn’t opaque! They are right out there to see if you pay attention and don’t mind being called a racist homophobe teabagger who is against global weather shifts and wants to starve 400lb minority women shouting in their obamaphones.

If true, then it has the appearance of being tantalizingly close. But close is all you’ll probably get.

Perhaps the President had to keep his promises for services provided already. Good will and valuable considerations. I’m not saying that that would extend to actual combat equipment, I’m just saying, the circumstances aren’t provided.

Was Reagan’s promise to share SDI technology with USSR once developed treason? Was Iran-Contra treason?

My theory is that the President and only the President has alot of leeway on such issues but can share that leeway with subordinates in certain circumstances. Such as Reagan with Iran-Contra.

That being said, I have tremendous respect for Judicial Watch, particularly when it was run by Larry Klayman. Is he back to running it?

Unless it was contracts/deliveries already in the pipeline? Otherwise, this is again (Benghazi/Fast & Furious) an example of treason.

There's that "treason" word again...

“If you want me to buy the story, you’ll need to say what the ‘military equipment’ was.”

Supposedly MILES (Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System) gear, which is like combining M16s, blanks, and laser tag. Still military tech though.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there was more given over to Russia than training gear.

Cruz and Rand Paul should be shouting this from the effen-rooftops!! Somebody with a big following. Reince Priebus and J. Boehner say nothing at all. John McCain would trash the name of any Wacko-Bird who spoke up about this.

I think Obama could rape a young boy and then perform a sacrifice on live TV, and his degenerate supporters and the news media would ignore it and tell everyone what a great job he is doing.

By the way this is a budget issue for the most part.Guess who has to be up to her ears in this:? If you said Matthews Burwell you can pass go and collect whatever is left in our treasury after these commie-bastards get through with the spending.
One can only imagine this wench in hhs and what is headed our way under the guise of zero care.

From your link at your blog.

The U.S. military uses MILES for tactical force-on-force training because it has a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat. MILESgearIt’s a crucial, military-grade technology that’s similar to a “laser tag” available in some commercial markets, according to one of the outraged lawmakers (Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine) that helped uncover the scandal.

Make no mistake about it this is hi-tech lazer equipment we are giving the enemyit simulates ground combat at a time that they are challenging us internationally! If that's not treason WTF is it.

Unfortunately ‘Treason’ is only applicable legally when there is a Congressionally Declared War. Otherwise legally, there is no enemy to be treasonous with. This was true under Clinton, as it is now.

These guys are free to give away whatever they want to whomever they wish for whatever reason they choose. Both Clinton and 0bizmal know the worst that can be done to the is a slap-on-the-wrist Impeachment, that the Senate will never Convict, and certainly never Remove. Same is true for all other Constitutionally applicable charges.

Certainly the case for ‘Treason’ was far stronger for Clinton - selling virtually every mil secret to the Chinese for cash - than against Obizmal.

We're stuck. With navel gazing LIVers commanding so many votes, plus the go-along-to-get-along attitude of the GOP, I doubt if we will see a Republican President again for a long time.

Obizmal is just putting the finishing touch to what Clinton started: a hollowed out, undermanned, and over-tasked Army/Marine Corp, a Navy launching tinfoil armored death traps, an Airforce stuck on having an overpriced plane that can do everything but nothing well - the US will, in coming decades, be hard pressed to repulse an invasion from Canada or Mexico - G help us if both at once.

Meanwhile, both Russia and China build out their respective mils and colonize the Moon and Beyond.

Employed by the U.S. military for training purposes, the MILES is a tactical force-on-force trainer, which uses a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat for soldiers. While a military-grade technology, MILES could be compared to a “laser tag” system available in some commercial markets. Both Turner and Bridenstine are concerned that the Administration planned supply to the Russian Federation is grave mistake given the recent invasion of Ukraine launched by Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.

"Both Turner and Bridenstine concerned giving this equipment to the ruskies is a grave mistake" If zero and val/jar are on our side why would giving such equipment or any equipment to aide the Russians even be considered? This is the better question?
