Well, that settles it. To anyone who had doubts that Biden-Harris would be a one-term failure: Welcome to the gas lines! A cyber attack has taken out a major gas pipeline on the East Coast. You might already know that if you’re waiting in line to buy a gallon of gas and reading this out of boredom during all the free time you have from waiting in line.
Yeah, I’ll go ahead and say this now for the record: This is Joe Biden’s “Katrina!”
By the way, great job by the intelligence agencies in protecting our gas pipeline infrastructure from national security threats. At least we know the pronouns of every single woke CIA analyst in the agency’s latest promotional videos.
The Colonial Pipeline in Georgia, which supplies about 45 percent of the gasoline on the East Coast, reported that it had been hit with a ransomware attack on Friday. The company completely shut down its operations to prevent the attack from spreading, and that pretty much sealed Joe and Kamala’s fate.
As of Thursday, the pipeline was only able to restart some of its smaller operations. But the gas lines have already spread in North Carolina, Georgia and other southern states, and Twitter is filled with reports of service stations completely running out of fuel.
One lucky person tweeted: “An employee stuck the ‘out of gas’ sign on my pump while I was still filling my truck. The place quickly cleared out.”
The hackers are reportedly asking for ransom money from Colonial, but there’s no word on whether the company has or will pay them.
It’s especially ironic that “Joe Biden’s” big infrastructure bill that the Democrats have been touting doesn’t actually contain any infrastructure in it. The Democrats have been running around telling us that, actually, amnesty for illegal aliens is infrastructure; reparations for black Americans is infrastructure; gun control is infrastructure; free pre-kindergarten day care is infrastructure; free community college is infrastructure; defunding the police is infrastructure; retirement pensions for cats is infrastructure; and so on.
Hey, Democrats: Do you know what else counts as infrastructure that you might want to pay a little better attention to?
FREAKIN’ GAS PIPELINES!
Perhaps instead of exhausting all of the FBI’s resources by trying to track down Suspect #302 in a MAGA hat who walked into the US Capitol on January 6th, the Bureau’s time would be better spent watching out for and protecting against ransomware hackers who suddenly crippled the entire US economy and assured us of blazing-hot inflation rates for the next couple of years.
But that’s just me.
Ninja Joe’s agile mind is right on top of this catastrophe, however. Biden has “directed federal agencies” to “bring their resources to bear” and so forth, “wherever shortages may appear.”
What is this?! How exactly are federal agencies supposed to help with delivering gasoline that’s supposed to be flowing through a pipeline? Does the Department of Interior have some secret supply of tanker trucks that none of us knew about? Maybe the Post Office should help, Joe!
This is an amazing display of incompetence. America just went from a net energy exporter under President Donald Trump a few months ago, with stable fuel supplies available for less than $3 a gallon nationally, to a country where they’re hanging “out of gas” signs on the pumps from Myrtle Beach to Nashville. Thank goodness there are no more mean tweets!
Biden is seeking to calm and reassure the American people right now, by telling us that the ransomware attack was not from Russia, but it was really Russia. First, Biden said that the intelligence agencies (which never saw the cyber attack coming in the first place) have no evidence that the attack originated in Russia.
Then Biden added, in his special form of halting English, that “the actors, the ransomware, is in Russia.”
Huh? Which… which is it, Joe?
I can remember the Jimmy Carter stagflation gas lines from when I was a kid in the 1970s. But I never thought that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would be able to pull the same thing off in less than four months. Maybe Biden could put Dominion Voting Systems in charge of our nation’s fuel infrastructure. That way, we could just shut down all the service stations overnight and everyone will magically have 300,000 gallons of gas in the tank the next morning.
