A lot of people out there aren’t buying the pipeline “cyber attack” story
Many Americans are furious over the gas shortages that are hitting much of the eastern part of the country.
We’re told that a pipeline was hacked. Reuters reported that a ransomware gang is accused of crippling the leading U.S. fuel pipeline operator said on Monday that it never meant to create havoc, an unusual statement that experts saw as a sign the cybercriminals’ scheme had gone awry.
The FBI accused the group that calls itself DarkSide of a digital extortion attempt that prompted Colonial Pipeline (COLPI.UL) to shut down its network, threatening extraordinary disruption as Colonial works to get America’s biggest gasoline pipeline back online by the end of the week. read more
A terse news release posted to DarkSide’s website did not directly mention Colonial Pipeline but, under the heading “About the latest news,” it noted that “our goal is to make money, and not creating problems for society.”
The statement did not say how much money the hackers were seeking. Colonial Pipeline did not offer any comment on the hackers’ statement and U.S. officials have said they have not been involved in ransom negotiations.
Many Americans are blaming Biden for this mess. This is understandable since when President Trump was in office, everything under the sun was his “fault” no matter what. So, the left made these rules and now they have to live by them.
But these people are actually onto something. About 100 days ago, we were energy independent and had the Keystone Pipeline, and today, we’re no longer energy independent, the Keystone Pipeline is gone, gas prices are soaring, and now this hack occurred, showing how vulnerable and ill-prepared we are under Biden’s sham regime.
So, for those reasons, yes, people are right to blame Biden.
But I have come across a growing number of people online who don’t think this was a “hack,” or if it was, it was a “controlled attack.”
They believe that this part of a plot by the left to push the “Green New Deal” and/or keep America in a state of total chaos…some people think it’s a way to kick off a “war” by blaming it on another country.
Here are some of the comments that I have stumbled across…and there’s a lot more where these came from:
“Keep voting democrat. they told you they hate big oil. enjoy what you voted for.”
“Lefty’s are fist-bumping and high fiving”
“There was no “hack”, that’s all horse shit. There is a plan to make you miserable, immobile, dependent, and poor, however. Wear your mask, good dog!”
Gas lines (odd and even days), stag-flation, the misery index, and a humiliating military defeat…..all part of Biden’s 100 day plan
“I don’t care what they say, I don’t believe that this was a hack. It was planned out.”
“CIA red flag so they can push green on us”
“You can bet the D.C. elites will have plenty of access to gas.”
“Why do you think they visited the Carter’s last week? To get some pointers…”
“I was just talking to one of the pipeliner guys this morning bout this. He works LP line says there is no way this was a hack job”
“Is it a coincidence that gretchen whitmer is about to shut down the enbridge pipeline thru michigan into canada in the next few days? I wonder… hmmm…”
“You guys remember that Biden shutdown the Keystone pipeline in March right? This is yet another hoax to provide an excuse and blame it on another country. THIS SH!T didn’t happen with Trump!”
“Cyberattack happened, but question is who did it. As usual our government points finger to Russia. Our government does that a lot and later you find it was some group or person in NSA, CIA or FBI was the orchestrator of the hit. Biden administration is behind it guaranteed and sooner this man and his party are removed from office the better for USA. Nothing good is going to happen with Biden and his Marxist group running this country.”
“One thing I know for certain, if Russia is being blamed then it wasn’t them.”
“The FBI is putting the blame on foreign hackers, but they are probably the ones doing this under President Harris’s orders. They are trying to bring America to her knees, in order to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM her. Strike while the beast is weak, our enemies are salivating.”
“CCP probably giving Hunter and the Big Guy a bonus for every day the gas is turned off.”
The reason conspiracy theories and suspicions like this grow is that the people and the government have grown so far apart that all that’s left is mistrust.
After the way COVID has been handled, the 2020 election, and January 6th, many people have lost all faith in government, and that’s why these types of conspiracy theories are popular and take flight.
And also, the FBI has taken a lot of damage with the “Russia conspiracy” hoax….so, a lot of people out there have lost faith in the “good guys” and the government, and that’s a real shame.
Just think, if our government and government agencies were transparent and forthright, there would be a lot fewer conspiracies and “citizen investigators” out there.
