Skip to comments.Obama Sanctions 'Individuals and Entities' Involved in Ukraine Crisis
Posted on 03/06/2014 5:12:37 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
President Obama "has signed an Executive Order that authorizes sanctions on individuals and entities responsible for activities undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine," according to the White House.
White House spokesman Jay Carney explains in a statement:
"As President Obama has made clear, the United States is pursuing and reviewing a wide range of options in response to Russias ongoing violation of Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integrity actions that constitute a threat to peace and security and a breach of international law, including Russias obligations under the UN Charter and of its 1997 military basing agreement with Ukraine, and that are inconsistent with the 1994 Budapest Memorandum and the Helsinki Final Act.

“actions that constitute a threat to peace and security and a breach of international law”
and yet Zero continues to breach US law, and the buffoons in Congress let him get away with it. Amazing.
Seems like that would be those who overthrew the constitutionally elected president.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but IF the Clown is going to impose sanctions on “individuals and entities” that interfere with Ukraine’s politics, WHY ARE WE GIVING THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT $1 BILLION?
From my recollection, the current government illegally BOOTED the elected President and put in their own leader....so it seems to me THEY interfered with Ukraine’s government.
SEE MY POST BELOW....THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT!
OBAMA THE AMATEUR.
Have you not noticed that everyone who comes along who is perceived as a threat to the ruling class is automatically labeled and castigated as either stupid or an idiot? The actuality is that with what good that “43” did, he was also a bend-over for the ruling class as well.
I had better go take my B12 before I start to get complacent!
He’s, (not Obama actually since he’s not in charge) going to start at the periphery and work in toward Putin.
Take away the visas from the elite and their families and their kids who are in university here.
Take away the ability to transfer money and use credit cards throughout the world for Russian citizens.
Create problems for the billionaires who keep their money outside Russia. Bitcoin was whisked to oblivion wasn’t it? And just look where Russian money in Crete’s banks went. Blackholes anyone? That’s what government debt is isn’t it?
Dicker with the oil and gas pricing, commodities.
Keep working around the periphery until those who are supporting Putin, the wealthy, decide they have had enough and depose him.
Threatening to dump US Treasuries is an empty threat.
We continue to be told he is an idiot.
This action is pretending to do something, to make news
“...signed an Executive Order that authorizes sanctions on individuals and entities responsible for activities undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine,”
“O” KNOWS who they are?
Then, he OUGHT to say who they are, so we can ALL know.
The thing is, “O” doesn’t know Jack! So as usual, he is making it up as he goes along. Believe me... IF he actually KNEW who, he’d blab and foist as much blame as possible on THEM... if only to get the heat off himself!!
OOOO he used his pen. Swoon.
I doubt they care much. The Cayman Islands and Hong Kong will never sanction them.
Limp. Flaccid. Feckless.

We simply can’t have Kerry traveling the world, stopping in at trouble spots around the globe without our checkbook in his hand. Wouldn’t do at all.
You’ll drive yourself crazy using logic like your post. This is something that needs to be asked of Carney at the next press briefing. It would be delightful to hear him hem and haw over a reply to that..
It is simply amazing what a bunch of Harvard lawyers (graduates) hired by this administration can come up with to make it appear as tho’ the president himself is hard at work solving the worlds problems. In the meantime, the country he was elected to lead goes down the toilet thanks to those same Harvard lawyers (graduates).
