On Thursday, at 1:05 PM. the present occupant of the White House issued the following statement to the press:
“This morning I signed an executive order that authorizes sanctions on individuals and entities responsible for violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, or for stealing the assets of the Ukrainian people.
According to my guidance, the State Department has also put in place restrictions on the travel of certain individuals and officials. These decisions continue our efforts to impose a cost on Russia and those responsible for the situation in Crimea. And they also give us the flexibility to adjust our response going forward based on Russia’s actions.”
Now read the fine print. He has declared a national emergency, something he has been foaming at the mouth to do. Watch out citizens, wait for that other proverbial shoe to drop.
