According to outgoing President Barack Obama, Russia helped rig the 2016 US presidential election in favour of Donald Trump.

Yesterday I watched Obama on TV, clearly very unhappy about what he termed Russian interference in presidential elections which resulted in Donald Trump winning.

A few questions came to my mind: So the American elections were not free and fair? So there is also rigging in the USA, the self-proclaimed proponent of ultra-democracy? What does this mean to the world?

Obama accused Russia of helping Trump rig elections, through hacking of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. An angry Obama also said he would retaliate. “I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections … we need to take action,” Obama said. “And we will – at a time and place of our own choosing.”

Well, well, well if it is true, Russia did a good job because America is busy rigging elections in other countries by funding opposition in almost every country in the world. So it only pains when it is done to USA?

But it is good when America does it to other countries? While I doubt if Russia did it, but one thing is clear here, America is getting too much afraid of Russia and what Russia is capable of doing.

It means Russia is indeed bringing a new world order, where it will checkmate USA.
