    Colonial Pipeline Hacked

    May 9, 2021

    President Joe Biden was briefed on the incident Saturday morning and the federal government is working to avoid supply disruptions, according to a White House spokesperson.

    “The federal government is working actively to assess the implications of this incident, avoid disruption to supply, and help the company restore pipeline operations as quickly as possible,” the spokesperson said.

    Colonial operates the largest refined products pipeline in the U.S., transporting 100 million gallons or 2.5 million barrels per day, according to its website. Refined products include gas, diesel, home heating oil and jet fuel. The pipeline also supplies the U.S. military.

    Colonial’s system spans over 5,500 miles between Texas and New Jersey, connecting refineries on the Gulf Coast to more than 50 million people in the southern and eastern U.S., according to the company.

    Colonial Pipeline is privately held by five entities: CDPQ Colonial Partners, IFM (U.S.) Colonial Pipeline 2, KKR-Keats Pipeline Investors, Koch Capital Investments Company, and Shell Midstream Operating.

    Federal response

    The Biden administration in April announced a 100-day plan to protect the country’s electric system supply chain from cyberattacks amid growing concerns over how vulnerable the U.S. power supply is to cyber threats.

    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which oversees interstate pipelines, said it is aware of the cyberattack and is monitoring the situation.

    Speculation: Cyber Polygon getting a head start?

    From “Event 201” to “Cyber Polygon”: The WEF’s Simulation of a Coming “Cyber Pandemic”

    Is it time to nationalize/globalize everything on earth???

    I'm quite sure the central planning globalists and Marxists think so.
    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    This was planned for months. I've got a heads up as long as 8 weeks ago, then again just last week I saw a public message
    on one of the boards saying it would happen, 4 days before it did.

    They do it for a number of reasons. It's an inside job.

    Blaming price inflation on hackers and shortages is definitely in vogue these days. Whatever it is, it is most definitely not money printing and the dollar being dropped as global reserve currency. It's definitely not that. Don't ever look at bankers as the root cause. They're caught off-guard by all this as much as we are, for sure.

    The exercise comes several months after the WEF, the “international organization for public-private cooperation” that counts the world’s richest elite among its members, formally announced its movement for a Great Reset, which would involve the coordinated transition to a Fourth Industrial Revolution global economy in which human workers become increasingly irrelevant. This revolution, including its biggest proponent, WEF founder Klaus Schwab, has previously presented a major problem for WEF members and member organizations in terms of what will happen to the masses of people left unemployed by the increasing automation and digitalization in the workplace.

    Yes, but thanks for the reminder for the community, @devil21. I have several threads/posts, and have suggested that the advertised July 9 date might take place sooner, as in, now, due to events that appear to be unfolding.

    Definitely feasible, given that CP has had plenty of alt-media coverage, plus the circulation of that very disturbing info about the Debt Reset Program timeline, apparently leaked by a Canadian member of Parliament in Oct last year. That timeline sure has tracked closely to unfolding events. Too much exposure either leads to abandoning plans or fast-tracking them...

    Certainly, they don't have to, it's just cost effective to do it. Consider that a pipeline network has lots of control points and systems monitored needs to maintain operations. Your options are to either have someone stationed at each point (very expensive) or use technology for remote monitoring / control and only send people into the field when there is a need (maintenance, inspections, repairs, etc.)

    Of course if you go the tech route you have to cover your cyber security needs.... not done here.

    It's a bunch of bs, man. There's no shadowy hacker group doing it from afar. The largest shareholder of Colonial is a WEF "Great Reset" member. This hacking narrative is a social engineering operation to incorporate inflation under false pretenses and "highlight the need to change" whatever Agenda 2030 is slated to change. Also create a reason for more ginormous spending like infrastructure bills. Expect lots of things to be disrupted by "hackers" in the near future. That's the point of the Cyber Polygon exercise that PAF and I have been posting in this thread about.

    Today, Mayor Pete is right on cue calling for changes to cybersecurity, dependence on fossil fuels and the need for infrastructure spending. Good thing A2030 calls for all those things. What a coincidence!

    I remember someone from a US government agency (don't remember which one) laughing at Russians running primitive computers with punch cards running some critical infrastructure. The Russians laughed it off, saying good luck remotely hacking our punch cards.

    Which brings a point of clarification to mind…

    I don’t mind technology at all and believe it can advance for the better. My beef is public-private ventures and multi-lateral agreements, which I referenced in another thread. Government is supposed to protect our freedoms, not collude and violate them on the tax payer dime. In a true free-market, the people would decide with their dollars winners and losers, not special interest/government.

    I live in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. A lot of our gas stations are closed and traffic is backed up because there are lines extending into the roads from the few gas stations who are opened.
