Biden Energy Secretary: Enemies Capable of Shutting Down Power Grid

After the scare that Texas had this winter, Americans became increasingly concerned about the susceptibility of our power grid.

Concerns grew ever larger after the two recent hackings that shut down a major pipeline and the meat industry.

Just as summer gets ready to hit and energy demand will be at seasonal highs, Biden’s Energy Secretary says that our enemies could shut down our entire power grid.

Under Attack

We all know that cyber-attacks are constantly being attempted, but we would hope that our power grid would be properly protected with the technology we have.

That, according to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, is not the case.

She recently discussed our power grid with Jake Tapper on “State of the Union,” offering up a rather surprising confession.

When Tapper asked Granholm if foreign actors have the technology to make the United States power grid go dark, she responded, “Yeah, they do.”

She continued, “There are very malign actors who are trying, even as we speak.

“There are thousands of attacks on all aspects of the energy sector and the private sector generally.”

Granholm concluded, “The bottom line is we have all got to up our games, with respect to our cyber defenses.”

Now, I am not a government security expert, but I would think that even if you thought that was the case, you sidestep the question as much as possible so as not to give these bad actors incentive to take down the grid.

If I were a hacker right now, I would be chomping at the bit to get on my keyboard and be “the one” to make this happen.

To me, it just seems like an absurd admission to make on TV when we have already seen the damage these cyber-attacks have done to this country.

This admission comes after the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms stated that cyber-attacks are a far larger threat to this country than anything that happened on January 6.

Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson said that even the thought of such cyber-attacks “keeps me up at night.”

It is unfathomable even to think that a country that is supposed to be the most powerful country on the planet is capable of being taken down by someone with nothing more than a keyboard and an internet connection.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
