    Meanwhile China tries to ship 20K fake drivers liscences to the US...

    Prolly a Russian trick, right?

    Yup, but the differences in skills acquired, and resources deployed, is huge.

    This was the way Russia did things in the 1800s... it's part of who they are.
    Chinese spying is mostly low budget and low tech.

    You're twenty years behind the time. Almost all the hacking emminates from China these days

    China does focus on commercial espionage.

    The screwing with election stuff is relatively new, they didn't mess with us 4 years ago. So somebody is 4 years behind the times..

    The Russians did screw with us, and it worked so well Putin pumped a bunch of money into it to make it more bigger and more sophisticated.

    And that's ignoring their other moves, like turning McConnell into Moscow Mitch...

    yeah he spent a whole 1000th of one percent of what the Republicans and Dems did in a clear attempt to make sure whoever won would find it almost impossible to govern. In that he succeeded.

    If you know what you're doing, you can burn a house down with a single match.

    Matches are dirt cheap, fixing the damage is not.

    As I said he succeeded in making the country ungovernable to a large extent.

    It would have been very difficult for the Democratic Party to have better played into the hands of America's enemies than to have offered the range of "candidates" we saw. In fact, the only thing that closely rivals those shenanigans is what the Republican Party did.

    As long as you pretend Trump isn't the worst in American history.

    That position belongs to #43. #45 is close, but no cigar.

    A lot of historians are bumping Bush 2 out of the bottom 3 because Trump is at the bottom of their list.

    I find that quite annoying, but I have to admit, we have had some real stinkers as president.

    By doing nothing to stop them a second time, indeed by refusing to accept it happened the first time, Trump sends a clear message to his Russian benefactor. Nothing Putin could do is more harmful to the US and NATO than seeing Capt. Chaos be re-elected so of course he's working to ensure that end.

    Yeah... they're going to cheat by sending licenses to people in "swing states" like New York, California or Illinois, right?

    You're going to be seeing lots and lots of fake nonsense from Russian bots. I suggest you try doing the most basic research before you decide to actively participate in their attacks on our elections.

    People who repeat the fake news without thinking is what they want. And you're falling for it.

    Foreign countries would try to interfere, that's normal. What has been proven is that Trump didn't collude. If the CIA can't stop Russia that's their problem.

    I don't know if this, in particular, is a Russian trick or not. I'm saying that this is the type of Russian tricks that they will be playing on you from here to November.

    My point, which you didn't address, is that a tiny bit of research.... not even that... a tiny bit of thinking about it (they're worried about losing California and New York???) before you re-post a conspiracy theory, would have made you aware that this is nonsense. And if you can't do that in something that is this obvious, it's clear that you will be falling for the more sophisticated ones they'll be using in the next few months.

    Does it ever occur to you that Judicial Watch has uncovered the backdoor deals that the Obama Administration made with Russia?

    Not to mention the front door Uranium One deal that occurred while Mueller was hiding Russian criminal activity in the US.

    Your story line reads like a record player with a broken stylus.

    Biden was in on the Russian hoax, so why would he make his situation even worse by bring a spotlight to bear on his own crimes?

    It's a problem for all Americans. I'm assuming you're not an American if you don't have a problem with foreign government having a say on who our President is. Myself, I most certainly have a problem. And it wouldn't be less of a problem if it were my candidate they were favoring.
