2. America has been hacked, likely by the Russians

However it came out only a week ago that those hackers gained access to central parts of the government including the treasury. It remains unclear exactly as to what they were after but confidential information is believed to have been stolen. It comes just weeks ahead of Biden’s arrival in the WH but as of now no formal admission from the Russians at all.

The larger government claims that such has caused a gender imbalance which they say is against the law. As puzzling as it is, the local government has confirmed that they intend to pay the fine.
