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.

  1. People in the know have been saying for years that our energy grid is not secured like it should be, but the “ powers that be” refuse to acknowledge it! They have done nothing to protect it. So—— does it have to be shut down by some bad actor before the government gets off it’s collective fat arse and do something? Looks that way! Biden is too busy killing jobs, ruining our oil and coal industry to do anything, because Obama says no! This has to be addressed in earnest now!

  2. Obama is not even a USA citizen! Biden is to in tune with Olmar and her squad members to take any advice from the USA!

  3. Cath, the Dumbocrats are leaving the power grid vulnerable so that when someone shuts it down, they can blame it on Trump.

  4. Any System that is controlled over the WWW-Internet is subject to hacking. Period! No amount of alleged security will prevent it. Who ever has web access and enough time can crack it. Adding more hackers in a coordinated effort shortens the time to do it. The problem is no good guy is looking over their shoulder as they work.
    How long would it take a bank robber to steal every thing if there were no good guy guards and he first defeated all the alarm systems. If no one is watching the best alarm system in the world is trivial to defeat. Same thing goes for the anonymous internet. The answer is simple link them by private networks, microwave data links, fiber optics,etc.

    1. ITS AMAZON ANY THING CAN HAPPEN UNDER THE DEMOCRATS PARTY DO THE CRIME AND BLAME IT ON SOMEONE ELSE ITS THE WAY OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY DOES THING,S IT NEVER WENT ON UNDER PRESIDENT,S TRUMP WATCH !!!!!!?

  5. Yes, why not blame it on Trump! That’s their excuse for everything.
