Obama Quietly Signs The “Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act” Into Law

Late on Friday, with the US population embracing the upcoming holidays and oblivious of most news emerging from the administration, Obama quietly signed into law the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which authorizes $611 billion for the military in 2017.

In a statement, Obama said that:

Today, I have signed into law S. 2943, the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.” This Act authorizes fiscal year 2017 appropriations principally for the Department of Defense and for Department of Energy national security programs, provides vital benefits for military personnel and their families, and includes authorities to facilitate ongoing operations around the globe. It continues many critical authorizations necessary to ensure that we are able to sustain our momentum in countering the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and to reassure our European allies, as well as many new authorizations that, among other things, provide the Departments of Defense and Energy more flexibility in countering cyber-attacks and our adversaries’ use of unmanned aerial vehicles.”

Much of the balance of Obama’s statement blamed the GOP for Guantanamo’s continued operation and warned that “unless the Congress changes course, it will be judged harshly by history,” Obama said. Obama also said Congress failed to use the bill to reduce wasteful overhead (like perhaps massive F-35 cost overruns?) or modernize military health care, which he said would exacerbate budget pressures facing the military in the years ahead.

But while the passage of the NDAA – and the funding of the US military – was hardly a surprise, the biggest news is what was buried deep inside the provisions of the Defense Authortization Act.

      Even your hero Thump doesn’t buy that stupid birther shit that Faux News fed you red necks for years. Don’t you ever stop and think just how gullible you have been? Go look in a mirror and ask yourself can I get any more stupid?

        Sheriff Joe Arpaio had him dead to rights! All the evidence was there! Yet, those that wanted him there kept that information at bay! Even the 2012 election was rigged to keep him there! Voting machines; some owned by George Soros’ interests were rigged. How many illegals voted that election? Did you know over one million one hundred thousand “DEAD” people from the 1890’s voted? That was presented to the Court of Appeals in Santa Ana. Obviously, nothing was done about it! It was tried again in the Primary election this year. Many were caught!
        They are trying to go after him now; even though he lost the last election! My hopes are that Trump has the case dropped on him!

    In the days of social media I’m not sure how effective a government propaganda office will be.

    HEHEHE and in that Bill was a Bill in my name to put the time limits back on the DOD and stop it from taking soldiers from all wars for a terrible ride by saying they over payed them at some point. What helped was the Pentagon recently trying the same thing.

    A small win for all of us.

      in your name????? What a load of shit

  • James in Texas says:

    So many fine, upright, hard working Black Americans and “This” is the “face” left behind of how a man of color leaves the White House, in shambles! How sad for our nation and the amount of damage he leaves behind him has and will cause the continued destruction of the former Democrat Party! As Mr. Trump stated…..”What do you have to lose”! Come home to America, It’s your country also!

  • bobnstuff says:

    The Republican have slipped something in a bill to try and hide it from view. Amazing! They put it in a must sign bill that they know the President has to sign and they do it late enough that vetoing it is not an option. How clever of them.

  • empty pockets says:

    Not “quietly” enough. I can still hear the little bleeper.

  • Terry says:

    Yadda, yadda, yadda, yeah right, you can go now Loser! P.S. If you think you can muster at least a little restraint & actual concern for our Country, could you please stop trying to start an Actual War with Russia for us to deal with while you sneak/slither out the back door to Allah-land with your Shieks in Robes buddies.

    1. leaningtotheleft says:

      You stupid shit the next asshole will be the start of a war with Russia if there is to be one, Thump is the most egotistical piece of shit ever to walk the face of this earth.

        you give the impression, that spoiled brat liberals are in need of adult supervision.

        1. leaningtotheleft says:

          We do and we have a President who is an adult, sorry I can’t say the same for that POS Thump> Guess daddy never spanked his little ass when young because he still throws his temper tantrums when someone says things he don’t like, Can see it now at his first State of the Union address laying on the stage tears flowing, slobbering all over the floor, arms flailing and crying for mommy.

          1. Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

            well of course vipers of the same scales shall agree. and be hostile to vipers with other diverse scales. because you are a crook in one gang, does not mean you are sympathetic to crooks in other gangs.
            the alleged aca, has become the uca. as if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor was not also the act of a lying con artist. and a good con artist, is always cool, calm, and collective.
            and as a good muslim, everything obama has done is meant to damage america. with every muslims dream, to destroy america also. our relationship, with our allies and the world have been severely damaged. as well as our, internal relationship with each other. the establishment of occult religious standards, forced on the religious standards of others. and other many constitutional, violations. as you remain satiated and oblivious, to the embarrassment of being conned.

            If America would have a Hall Of Stupid you would be the statue out front. Just think instead of vying for the Heisman Trophy idiots would strive to win the “Boswell”

            sorry but i, know better than to compete for the darwin, or dumbbell piece prize awards.
            nor do i believe the british, would appreciate your insulting a relative from the family of Their Former Queen Elizabeth.
            when you, call someone else stupid you should not make stupid comments in order to prove your own stupidity and ignorance.

            You must be a liberal! This man was earmarked to be our president long before he actually took office. And, in reality, he is the president of a private corporation called (in all caps) THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, a private corporation; located in Washington D.C.; an area owned by the British Government; so confirmed by Queen Elizabeth II in an interview about 2 months ago. Both, actually are not part of the united States of America. We can thank the Congress of 1871 for that! And, it hasn’t made any difference up to now as to whether it was a Republican or Democratic president in office since!
            I tend to believe in Trump as he has chosen not to make the White House his home and office. That is the first good thing about this man that I like!
            You can bet that, had Hillary actually won the seat, we would start to see the demise of America and our freedoms! I saw it a very long time ago and if she had won, the plans would have brought our nation to its knees! We would have seen the demise of the majority of seniors in this nation and many others as well. Or, many of us would be in one of the many detention camps located throughout this country. There are, at least, three to four such camps in my part of the country.
            You might ask why? To turn America into a soviet-style country where we would then cease to exist as a free nation! We, then, would join the, then, One World Government which is the direction we have been heading for. But, a large part of our people have been so dumbed down; especially if all they see are what’s on TV in the news or the newspapers which are controlled by the same people who support the plan!
            And, before you call me a liar, start doing your own research outside those medias. Maybe you might get smart too!

        Have a vert Happy & Blessed New Year. It’s going to be a Great New Year beginning with January 21st 2017. Don’t give up.

        1. leaningtotheleft says:

          It will be a happy new year. It’s the rest of the year that will suck having a pediphile (remember old man looking up a 10 year old girls dress on an escalator and thinking of screwing her in a few years) or is that one of those pasttimes you enjoy? Or walking into a beauty pageant dressing room just because he sponsored it?

          1. Robert Green says:

            Is that your truth or do you just accept the word of those who were intent to try and destroy Trump’s chances. How about the deaths of many of the Clinton’s close “friends” following their departure of the White House? How about the death of Justice Scalia? Do you think that was natural? He was the one who would make a difference in the Supreme Court in most votes. Obama hopefully thought he would be able to name the next Justice to replace Scalia. Thank God it didn’t happen that way!. Blind faith is great if you are religious. But if you are a politician, that is not something I would want to have occuring when it means that our nation could be torn apart!!

      I sat for two years on the East German border with a nuclear missile battery in the 70’s and believe me I do not want a nuke war but this idiot you put in office just doesn’t have a clue when to shut his mouth. He thinks he can bully his way through the world like in the “business” world where his paid lawyers did all his dirty work. Remember this chickenshit didn’t even have the guts to face the draft and possibly be asked to fight for America and now you think he has the knowledge to run the military? You sir I owe an apology to….you are even fucking dumber than I gave you credit for.

        It’s now coming out that he may not, in any way, shape or manner, be an American Citizen! To me that is treasonous!
