Now Michigan’s Governor Wants to Shut Down ANOTHER Fuel Pipeline

by Robert Wheeler, The Organic Prepper:

As the entirety of the southeast United States hunts for gas and wonders if they are going to be able to make their way to their jobs the next day as a result of an alleged cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, Michigan’s Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is now attempting to shut down another pipeline running through her state.

As a result, the state of Michigan has told Enbridge, a Canadian energy company, that it has to shut down an oil and gas pipeline by May 11. What’s even more strange than closing down a pipeline at a time when the entire Southeast of the country faces a gas shortage is that Whitmer’s claims are not completely invalid as most hers tend to be. Whitmer and the state of Michigan are arguing that the pipeline represents a potentially massive environmental disaster if the pipelines burst, leak, or are damaged.

Gas Panic: East Coast Gasoline Demand Soars 32.5%, Outages Spread

by John Carney, Breitbart:

Demand for gasoline soared Monday as the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline sent Americans to the pumps.

Gas demand on the east coast of the U.S. rose 32.5 percent compared with the prior Monday, GasBuddy petroleum analyst Patrick De Haan tweeted on Tuesday.

PADD is short for Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts, a designation created during World War II to allow the government to allocate petroleum distribution. PADD 1 is the East Coast, PADD 2 is the Midwest, PADD 3 is the Gulf Coast, PADD 4 is the Rocky Mountains, and PADD 5 is the West Coast.

US Declares State Of Emergency To Keep Gasoline Flowing After Colonial Fails To Restart Hacked Pipeline

from ZeroHedge:

Update 9:00pm ET:  The US government declared a state of emergency late on Sunday, lifting limits on the transport of fuels by road in a bid to keep gas supply lines open as fears of shortages spiked after the continued shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.

“This Declaration addresses the emergency conditions creating a need for immediate transportation of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other refined petroleum products and provides necessary relief,” the Department of Transportation said. White House Press Sec Jen Psaki added that “as the Administration works to mitigate potential disruptions to supply as a result of the Colonial Pipeline incident, @USDOT is taking action today to allow flexibility for truckers in 17 states.”

Cyberattack Forces Shutdown Of Largest Gasoline Pipeline In United States

from ZeroHedge:

The largest gasoline pipeline on the East Coast, and the US in general, was shut down on Friday after its operator struggled to contain a cyberattack which threatened its systems. The 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which is the single largest refined-products pipeline in the United States, halted transit as the company was forced to take “certain systems offline to contain the threat, which has temporarily halted all pipeline operations,” according to The Wall Street Journal on Saturday. It’s reportedly still offline into early Saturday.

US Investigating Possible Mysterious Directed Energy Attack Near White House

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Since 2017 controversy and speculation has abounded over the legitimacy of the so-called “Havana syndrome” story, which involved some 50 diplomatic officials working at the US Embassy in Cuba coming down with strange illnesses and symptoms – from headaches to vomiting to ‘brain trauma’ – which was blamed on high tech covert ‘sonic attacks’ by nefarious actors. Officials were quick to blame either Russian intelligence or Cuban operatives in what sounded like a wild James Bond style bit of futuristic espionage.

Last week the allegations returned to national media spotlight after defense officials said they believe Russia is likely behind “directed energy” attacks on US troops in northeast Syria. Apparently some US troops occupying the country began reporting “flu-like symptoms” which caused the DoD to investigate possible linkage to microwave or directed energy weapons on the battlefield of Syria. Politico reported that “officials identified Russia as a likely culprit, according to two people with direct knowledge of the matter.”

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION REMAINS SILENT AS IRAN PREPARES TO TAKE URANIUM ENRICHMENT TO 60% AFTER ISRAEL ATTACKED THEIR NATANZ NUCLEAR FACILITY

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The Jerusalem Post has learned that the attack was carried out through an explosive device that was smuggled into the facility and detonated remotely. An intelligence official told The New York Times on Tuesday that the attack took out both the primary and backup electrical systems. Iran is almost ready to start enriching uranium to 60% purity at an above-ground plant at Natanz and plans to add 1,024 first-generation IR-1 centrifuges to an underground plant Tehran says was hit by sabotage, the UN atomic watchdog said on Wednesday. Iran has said it will enrich uranium to 60% – a big step closer to the 90% that is weapons-grade from the 20% maximum it has reached so far – in response to what it says was an act of sabotage by Israel against the underground plant.

Texas Faces New Power Crisis: Prices Soar 10,000% As ERCOT Urges Power Conservation Amid Grid ‘Emergency’

from ZeroHedge:

Texas’ power grid operator, Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which came under immense pressure months ago for mishandling the historic winter storm in mid-February, urged customers Tuesday afternoon to “reduce their electricity use” as a cold front swept through, causing power demand to spike.

ERCOT told customers to please “conserve energy at this time. Consumers and businesses are urged to reduce their electricity use this afternoon and into the evening.”

Texas’ power grid operator also said:

BIDEN IS GUTTING THE U.S. ENERGY SUPPLY

Joe Biden and his administration is in the process of destroying multiple U.S. energy sectors and the energy independence of our nation which was achieved under President Donald J. Trump. This is horrible news, and we should do everything in our power to reverse it, but in lie of that, there is one energy sector which is poised to profit from Joe’s NWO “green dreams”. CEO Scott Melbye joins me to discuss.

“Forever” diamond battery takes up to 28,000 years to run out of charge

by Virgilio Marin, Natural News:

California startup Nano Diamond Battery (NDB) says it has designed a battery made from nuclear waste that will take up to 28,000 years to run out of charge. The “forever” diamond battery was developed for use in deep space and other niche applications, but a consumer-facing prototype is also in the works.

The firm said that the latter model will be able to last for nine consecutive years. It can power smartphones, electric vehicles and other devices. When powered by the “forever” battery, machines will never have to be recharged for many years.

21 States File Lawsuit Against Biden To Overturn Controversial Canceling Of Keystone XL Pipeline

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

Twenty-one states have filed a lawsuit against Democrat President Joe Biden over his controversial canceling of the Keystone XL pipeline, a decision that has sparked pushback even from Democrats who are not far-left on energy policy.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, alleges that Biden has exceeded his presidential authority by canceling the pipeline on his first day in office, a move that even angered Canada.

Texas Residents Are Being Billed Up To $16,000 For ONE DAY of Electricity and Power Companies Are Going Under

by Robert Wheeler, The Organic Prepper:

The Texas power grid is failing and failing fast. I’m not just talking about failing under extreme weather conditions but under the market and governmental regulatory requirements.

In the wake of freezing weather that swept across the Lone Star state, millions of Texans found themselves without power for days on end. That power outage then saw bursting pipes lead to a water crisis never before seen in the state’s modern history.

Goldman, Bank Of America Made Hundreds Of Millions From Texas Blackouts

from True Pundit:

Who needs Enron when you have taxpayer-backed “banks.”

Whereas 20 years ago, it was Enron that made billions from the California electricity crisis (which it caused), a scandal which culminated with Enron’s scandalous and convoluted bankruptcy, this time it is pristine banks such as Goldman and Bank of America that made hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue as tens of millions of Texans were stuck in the dark.
