trump and Russia
« on: December 18, 2020, 10:43:38 am »
So Russia launces a cyberattack on the US and  trump, again, does nothing.  That ain't no hoax.

Quote
This week brought the disclosure of a global cyberespionage campaign that penetrated multiple U.S. government agencies by compromising a common network management tool from the company SolarWinds used by thousands of organizations. Russia, the prime suspect, denied involvement.

Cybersecurity investigators said the hack’s impact extends far beyond the affected U.S. agencies, which include the Treasury and Commerce departments. Defense contractors like General Dynamics and Huntington Ingalls Industries were on SolarWinds’ client list, but those two firms have declined to comment.

SolarWinds counts all five military services, the Pentagon and the National Security Agency among its clientele, and the New York Times reported that the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and parts of the Pentagon were compromised.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-organization-ordered-to-turn-over-documents-to-new-york-attorney-general-11608073387   Trump has bigger problems. Also worth note that Presidential pardons are only for federal crimes. Trump will most likely have to flee to Russia once he leaves office. It'll be awesome to hear how his cult will react once he absconds.

How dare Trump leave this up to relevant agencies to prevent it and not spend all his hours personally writing anti-cyberattack programs. It's his fault!!!!!!

While simultaneously insisting on having all the credit for the Covid vaccine.  Surely if he gets NO BLAME when things go wrong, he derserves NO CREDIT when something goes right.

And he deserves no credit anyway, as Pfizer didn't take a penny from Warp Speed ...
Mr. C is not a bad person, in fact is quite a good person here. One of the best people on this forum if you really look at it

I agree that Trump deserves little credit. People way overstate what the President's powers and influence are. It's why I never bought into Benghzai!!!!!! and ridiculed those who did. The exciting version is "Everything that happens because of the President and we should credit or blame them" the boring version acknowledges all of the moving parts.

No hint of being compromised there at all.  It was just a slip of the tongue. :laugh:

Who can forget that  'incredible offer'!

Yes, why give up his golf game to get involved in national security as the commander-in-chief?
