Nashville Bombing, grid infrastructure and cyber attacks.

I am wondering if any security expert has commented on TV about the intersection of all these things. Recent hacks have exposed a lot of government agencies and fortune 500 companies.
For years we have known that grids like energy or communication are vulnerable. The Nashville explosion appears to have disabled part of the ATT network there. Whether this was the goal or not is unknown.
However if it was, one might ask whether or not knowledge about where to strike was gathered by hacking.

we can turn the repubs complaints about voting machines around.

Now would be a perfect time to say, ok we should go full paper ballots everywhere. I would be happy with that.

Did Trump gaslight himself and is convinced he won ?

Did what started as grifting turned into delusion ? Some often attribute to Trump a devious and genius con mind (not smart, just primal instincts at the con game) . I am wondering if even that is untrue. He may just be tilting at windmills completely delusional. After all he surrounds himself with such people.

How do we break this cycle ?

Toomey is trying to cut the ability of the feds to help in the financial crisis as part of letting the bill for covid relief pass.

We already went fron 3.3 trillions to 900 billions, agreed to drop aid to states, cut stimulus payments to $600.00, unemployement checks to $300.00 .

Republicans know we might yield on that too. They are ununcumbered by conscience, we are not and the gop has learned to take advantage of it.

Honestly, im not sure how we get out of this situation. If we yield, we enable them, if we dont people who desperately need help quick get hurt.

I bet the Trump admin is hindering Pfizer vaccine distribution

because they did not bow to dear leader and refused to be part of warp speed unlike Moderna who just got approval tonight.
Its probably another petty bullshit move .

Whoaa Biden is not mincing words

He is making it clear that the actions of those who took part in the texas lawsuit were inconscionable.

I think the Trump admin threatening the fda to approve vaccine

even thought they were going to do it tomorrow was done on purpose. They want to put doubt into people's minds in order to screw up the vaccination. Its in the interest of the gop to try to sabotage the incoming Biden administration in order to get fodder for the 2022 midterm elections.

So this trumper kid Kash Patel is blocking the pentagon transition.

One of the stooges that was recently put in there by Trump. This guy needs to be ridden out of town on a rail, tar and feathered.

Post Trump we have to make sure democrats use all their influence to insure these kind of people are ruined, ostracised, put on a blacklist, never to find another good job.

is the floor of the house or senate under federal juridiction ?

if so Trump or one of his goons could walk in there and gun down democratic leadership then be pardonned by Trump.

Would not these murders be federal crimes and thus pardonable ?
