    As most of us know President's get tested on their mettel and their response to various events.
    As most of us know Putin has warned the U.S. not to "cross the red line".
    As most of us know the shutting down of the Colonial pipeline was instigated by hackers in Russia
    Is Russia supporting Hamas through Iran?
    Most of us do not know that there is a serious crisis in the Ukraine involving Russia that is reminiscent of the 2014 conflict.

    So is Russia (Putin) testing Biden?

    I don't see it so much as a test - but rather a palm slap to the face.

    World leaders don't respect Biden - with good reason.

    I wouldn't doubt it. Too bad Biden is a puppet president and Harris is the one calling the shots as shadow president.

    Putin has lost his puppet; so he needs to start causing problems for the US.
    So, you can call it 'testing' if you like - but Biden knows not to trust Putin.

    You mean "mettle".

    Of course Russia will seek to test Biden. But there is no evidence of state involvement in the pipeline ransomware hack - and that is according to US intelligence, who, one might naively think, are fairly likely to know what is going on.:D

    As for Russia supporting Hamas via Iran, they may be but the origin of the latest pathetic bloodbath is nothing to do with Russia - unless Russia is supporting Jerusalem Day activists.;)

    Inventing motives for Putin just so you can slander Biden is an idiots game. Congratulations, you've won!

    **Important updates**Colonial pipeline has reopened without paying ransom to Russian hackers. Israel capable of defending itself from Hamas without U.S. intervention.

    I don't see any reason they would need to test Biden. They might be testing the United States, though.

    You should have read my draft when I wrote mental, sometime your brain gets lazy and lets your fingers do the walking. Yes I got lazy when I was proof reading my post but I guarantee you I will not do it again....whoops meant will do it again.

    Weather (see I did it again) Whether the government of Russia was directly involved or not a "wink and a nod" can not be proven nor disproven.

    Are you saying that Russia would not care to see how the current administration handles this or any attack against one of our strongest allies in the mid-east or anywhere else, say like the Ukraine ?

    You do realize that Biden is president don't you?
    Do not his policies dictate what the United States does or does not do?

    Yes, I heard something about that on the news.

    He's not a dictator. But even if he was, there would still be the question of the United States' capabilities to carry out specific goals or directives. Biden could order his administration to "stop Russian hackers from breaking in to our computer systems," but that doesn't mean our experts have the skill or capability to do that. They could be testing Big Tech, since they appear to be outclassed and outmatched by the Russians.

    Looks like we got an avid CNN watcher here. Or is it BBC?

    After years of investigations not a shred of evidence linked Trump with Putin.

    Unlike the DNC paying for the fake dossier, Hunter's laptop and the plethora of statistical impossibilities and anomalies in the 2020 election that exposed the corruption of the Democrats and Biden.

    Joe is weak and feeble minded and the world knows it - which is why they barely speak to him.

    That and he doesn't come out in the sun that often.

    There are lots of scary stairs out here! :D

    Neither, i do wish you would stop making silly guesses anf get your act together before jumping into the poo with both feet.

    I usually watch france24, a far more unbiased news service than the American efforts

    Except all the friends and friends of friends and those sent to meet with putin on trumps behalf etc

    trump linked to pitin - Google Search

    Just a few pointing fingers, i personally like the politico charts showing the many links


    Evidence please of anomalies in the 2020 election... or have you been listening to too much fox news


    So you are saying the great American public voted in a weak and feeble president... who incidentally is restoring Americas standing in the world.

    Not vary patriotic of you i dont think.

    Oh, a bet you must have really thought hard and sharpened your fingernails to come up with that *****y comment. It sounds like something you picked up at cheerleader class

    I'm sure they will be watching very keenly, as always with a new US administration. Especially since this administration does not feel any kinship with them.

    Oh yeah - state-owned media is unbiased. (Note: Sarcasm)

    And I especially loved all that evidence you presented that proved that my "guesses" were wrong.

    You sure showed me. (Note: Further Sarcasm)
    You mean all that stuff that amounts to enough more than hearsay and slander?

    Maybe that's enough to "prove" something in France - but not where I come from.

    Actually - the court of public opinion is strong here - and many people believed the hearsay and slander with no actual evidence.

    Just a sign that that entire world is going to Hell.
    I think its interesting that that was the only item of my list you asked evidence for.

    Proving that you do not contest that the DNC (Hilary) paid for the Steele Dossier which led to the phony warrants to spy on Trump and his campaign and that Hunter Biden's laptop contained evidence that his father abused his authority as VP to make money off of China and Ukraine.

    I don't watch Fox News. Maybe some Tucker here and there - but they have proven not to be reliable. Better than CNN - but not much.

    Anyways - there is so much evidence of anomalies and irregularities happening only in the key States that Biden needed to win that it is beyond doubt in my opinion.

    I will not waste my time sharing information I know that you are just going to dismiss.

    Is any of that even needed considering that we agree on what the DNC (Hilary) and Biden did? There is evidence of it - but no one cares.
    Neither of these things happened or are happening.

    I do not believe that Biden "won" and I know he is the laughingstock of the world.

    The world wants to control the U.S. Get us to pay for their useless BS and defend them because they won't invest in defending themselves.

    They want us to sign up for one-sided trade agreements that they can profit from and take in all the people they don't want.

    The world views the U.S. as a meal ticket - so I'm not surprised that you consider what Biden is doing is "restoring the standing" of the U.S. in the world - because your sugar daddy is back in town.

    I bet you are thrilled!
    I love my country as founded - not with all the changes made by the liberal nutjobs.

    I love the United States of America - and because I love it - I don't want it to change.

    You wouldn't really love it if all you wanted it to do was be something else.
    No - it was easy. It's all we talk about. Biden is so weak and small. He can't even read a teleprompter. Bumbling Joe is a joke who has never accomplished anything on his own merit.

    He either lied or cheated his way.
