The Biden administration is unraveling before Americans’ very eyes.
A series of crises are creating a political environment not seen since the 1970s.
And now Jen Psaki got caught in one lie that spells deep trouble for Joe Biden.
A group of hackers shutdown the Colonial Pipeline with a ransomware attack in order to force the energy company to pay a hefty price to resume operations.
The Colonial Pipeline is a major source of oil for the East Coast and shutting it down for days threatened a massive disruption in supply.
On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki falsely claimed there would be no supply disruptions.
“At this point in time, I would just reiterate: We don’t see a supply issue,” Psaki claimed.
By Tuesday, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency as gas stations around North Carolina were out of fuel.
This is so bizarre. I’ve called 10 gas stations around Asheville and not a single one has gas. One person laughed at me when I asked. And yet nothing on current gas shortages on NPR and most other national news sites. How is this not the biggest story in the US right now???

Psaki was forced to walk back rosy assertions that turned out not to be based in fact or truth.
“The Administration is continually assessing the impact of this ongoing incident on fuel supply for the East Coast,” Psaki stated. “We are monitoring supply shortages in parts of the southeast and are evaluating every action the Administration can take to mitigate the impact as much as possible.”
America is now facing fuel shortages, inflation, and crime waves in major cities.
Many Americans believe the nation under Joe Biden looks a lot like the disaster that was Jimmy Carter’s four years in office.
