    Has it been considered hacking into the navigation system of Air Force One?

    Maybe Trump could be directed to one of his favourite s*hole counties ,or Greenland maybe.

    Trump's trade war made many people in developing and poor countries suffer.

    You think I have to care much about something what happened many years before I started support Putin? At a time almost everything was yet plausible in Russia given that it was made completely corrupt during Yeltsin time (with a lot of US support)? I have not cared at all at that time, I would not have cared at that time even about further subdivisions of Russia (last but not least I'm not a Russian), and a posteriori the evidence proposed at that time does not look decisive enough to decide if there was really something wrong or if this was simply one of the first propaganda operations against Putin.

    The more interesting thing is that CptBork has to go back to such times long ago, when Russia was yet highly corrupt, to find something (what actually happens, like the Navalny fake, seems so obviously faked that even CptBork will not touch it), while I have fun with the actual news:

    As if Americans would care. Obama's sanctions had similar effects, and Biden's sanction will have similar effects too.

    I just read a tweet from a philosopher named Jason: "Live your life in such a way that the entire planet doesn't dance in the streets when you lose your job."

    The overwhelming impression is of relief: four years is a long time to hold your breath.

    "Heather Long at the Washington Post, “U.S. economic growth slowed, business investment froze, and companies didn’t hire as many people. Across the nation, a lot of farmers went bankrupt, and the manufacturing and freight transportation sectors have hit lows not seen since the last recession. Trump’s actions amounted to one of the largest tax increases in years."

    U.S. companies lost at least $1.7 trillion in the price of their stocks as a result of U.S. tariffs imposed on imports from China."

    You mean the sanctions Obama put on Russia for meddling in the 2016 election? And, then Trump supported Putin for his reaction?

    Tell us all about Bidens sanctions? What's that you say? There are none?

    Yes, Americans care if their business goes bankrupt because of Trumps trade wars. Duh.

    Rudy Giuliani just went after Will Smith claiming his dead dad voted in the election, twice.

    Sometimes we find low life lawyers, but Rudy is the king.

    Conservatives are screaming voter fraud in Michigan where a number of votes incorrectly went to Biden. After the dust settled, it was found the County Clerk, a Republican, failed to update the software.

    No, no, no, you fool! Just Black people name Smith! It's okay for Chris Smith's ancestors to vote.

    During the caucuses(I caucused for Sanders) we had a software glitch that moved votes around seemingly randomly.
    These were all volunteers(who had no training on the software) and seemed more befuddled, apologetic, on the phone a lot and upset by the glitch than the rest of us.
    We ended up going to various places for different candidates, and being counted by a pair of volunteers who requested that people stop moving around. We were informed that there were not enough votes to secure a delegate for Bernie, so we moved over into the Lizzy crowd and were counted there.
    and
    we had paper ballots ---that specified 1st and second choice(mine had Bernie and Tulsi)----then these were crossed out and Warren penciled in-----

    85,000 polling stations in the US. All of which have there own rules . Which makes it easy , depending on the quality of the security , ( which I'm sure the FBI is watching ) , for BS , by Anybody .

    Please provide evidence that all 85,000 polling stations have their own rules. Alternatively retract that ridiculous absolute statement and look less of a fool.

    Its true . There is no Fed. Standardisation in which all states and counties conduct their voting protocols .

    That's not what you said. You clearly stated that "all 85,000 polling stations have their own rules", when the fact is that each state sets the rules for the polling stations in that state. That suggests up to 50 different sets of rules. (I don't know how Washington D.C. fits into the picture.) 50 sets of rules is a lot less than the 85,000 you claim.

    I was thinking each county . In any state has its own voting rules .

    I get it. You spoke imprecisely. That was my point. It's a habit with you. It's one reason your views are rarely treated with respect.
