The group behind the recent cyber attack on a U.S. gas pipeline that supplies almost one-half of all gasoline to the east coast of the United States.

As The New York Times reports:

The F.B.I. confirmed on Monday that DarkSide, a hacking group, was responsible for the ransomware attack that closed a U.S. pipeline that provides the East Coast with nearly half of its gasoline and jet fuel.

The Biden administration is expected to announce an executive order in the coming days to strengthen America’s cyberdefense infrastructure.

President Biden said on Monday that the government had mitigated any impact the pipeline hack, which prompted emergency White House meetings over the weekend, might have had on the U.S. fuel supply. He added that his administration had efforts underway to “disrupt and prosecute ransomware criminals.”

Colonial Pipeline, the operator of the system, issued a statement saying that restoring service “takes time.” It added that while the situation was “fluid and continues to evolve,” the company would restore service incrementally, with the goal of “substantially” restoring service by the end of the week.

At this time it is believed ‘Darkside’ may be a criminal collective, but the possibility that it may be acting on behalf of a state actor like China has not yet been ruled out.

I do not believe it is the USA anymore, but the Country is in serious trouble. People in responsible positions refuse to speak to the public regarding the success of Chinese fraud to support their puppet Joe Biden as the presidential winner of the 2020 election. Demoncrats support Biden election because it is tremendously beneficial to demooncrats!

R and D mean nothing.. A third of all elected now are owned by the Vatican. .. Biden works directly for the Vatican. the Vatican is a foreign, hostile NATION that is at perpetual undeclared war with all nations. The Vatican has managed to destroy an entire continent. Not to many little places can manage to do that. A hundred nations, a thousand years, and exactly 100% FAILURE. Think about that before you vote the next time.

Who is calling the shots at the white House ? Why is Biden off limits to the press? Why are the white house logs off limit to the public? Stick to your American ideals: The Biden’s have been caught in bed with the China Spy Rings,” Hunter” is now suppose to under investigation for working with Chinese spy rings. It’s apparent socialist Biden’s policies are not working, our country is in turmoil, beginning downslides of financial declines, in energy, employment, with total economic failures. Tax and spend, spend and tax is not a forward moving policy, it just points puts us in a quick trend towards total bankruptcy. Time for positive change, with leadership that can solve problems, not add to the false promise of fair, equal government control. The Biden’s have sold their American values for profit, power, and are now trying to hold that position of socialist, communist values at all cost. They are violating our Constitution, our principal, and most of all our American values. The Biden dictatorship is done, all are seeing the truth of their lies now, the worm is turning and America must return to it’s glory.

Biden’s policies are working – for China, Russia and other enemies. They know he is an idiot and can buy him. In only a few months he has become the worst president in American history!

You forgot that Biden works directly for the Vatican. the Vatican is a foreign, hostile NATION that is at perpetual undeclared war with all nations. The Vatican has managed to destroy an entire continent. Not to many little places can manage to do that. A hundred nations, a thousand years, and exactly 100% FAILURE.

If Biden worked for the Vatican he certainly would not be supporting and pushing the pro abortion policy. And being the religious zealots that they are, they believe in “give unto Caesar that which is Caesars, and give unto God that which is Gods.” the only religious controlled countries are Islamic. And not Catholic. Dont be gullible

I’m very fearful that our nation is about to explode in a type of “civil war”! When one sees fighting with arrests over gasoline on the local level, it seems something is taking over our government . We need a strong president, not a Joe Biden. Maybe he should be impeached for selling out to China!

The FBI is still too busy harrassing Trump and friends. They are the New Gestapo. When the revolution begins, the Criminal and Corrupt FBI will no longer exist.
