  1. republicans: “We’ll just let private corporations protect themselves.”
    Texas Power Grid: “Oh, you mean like you did with me?”
    republicans: “Sorry, can’t talk. Gotta catch my plane to Cancun.”
    Texans:

  2. Republicans need to stop standing in the way of protecting this nation’s security and democracy.

    1. @Pew pew McPewface AND THE DEMS HAVE DONE A POOR JOB. TRUMP HAD EVERTHING SET AND BIDEN UNDID WHAT TRUMP PUT IN PLACE AND NOW WE HAVE A MESS.

    2. @mike briganti Joe Biden cleaned up Trump’s mess, but you dont see that, because your mind is one..

    3. @Pew pew McPewface yes democracy is perhaps in charge, so republicans are standing in their way?

    4. @Golden Boy we aren’t a democracy, we’re a constitutional Republic. Also, joe hasn’t cleaned anything up. He’s one of the most Do-nothing presidents ever.

    5. @Pew pew McPewface hes doing things, your just not seeing anything because of your search history.

  3. what……even if it makes sense to stop it……wow……that sounds like admission of guilt

  4. But if you take the crypto currency out of the stock market and banks account activity in crypto, this will not be happening because there will be no interest to start something if there is no reward for it..

  5. The US can’t continue to just complain about hacks, we need to harden sites too. Not doing so is very naive.

    1. diane webb it would help if the republicans would stop blocking the infrastructure bill

  6. Sign the cyber bill proposed or revise it so we can at least use proactive measures to combat against these cyber attacks instead of being reactive and paying and negotiating with terrorists. Mind you, it won’t stop because the former man might have given Putin more than a hand shake.

  7. Cannot wait to see putins face when this gets brought up. Will he frown and bring up US hacking or something?

  8. Russian people will not stop until they destroy the United States! … Americans protect at least their children!

  9. Public advice to all is to not pay ransoms. Private case by case real life requires payment not to go out of business. Back up everything, 2 step authentication and not opening strange emails would go a long way. The best defense is a good offense.

    1. @SkankHunt 42 See this is the issue. We assume it will turn into a Nuclear war. Neither side in a war wants to use Nukes. Just a plain war. We fight.

  10. The US needs to step up its cyber warfare capabilities. We’d be better off today if the money wasted on the F-35 had been spent on cyber capabilities/ defense instead.

  11. Twitter says that “having access to the free and open internet is an essential human right in modern society.”
    Except for President Trump.

  12. And THE PUSHER ” Don’t let HITLER GATES off on this one! he was the PUSHER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
