From open borders to COVID to gas shortages to massive inflation on virtually all goods, the Biden administration is facing a number of crises right now.
Of course, Biden is doing his best to keep Americans in the dark about how bad things really are.
But Jen Psaki just got caught telling one lie that shows America is in deep trouble under Joe Biden.
Last week a group of hackers used a ransomware attack to shutdown the Colonial Pipeline in order to force the energy company to pay millions of dollars to continue operations.
As a major source of oil for the entire East Coast, shutting down the Colonial Pipeline for several days created a massive disruption in supply.
But White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki falsely claimed during a press conference on Monday that the shutdown would not cause disruptions in the supply of oil to the East Coast.
“At this point in time, I would just reiterate: We don’t see a supply issue,” Psaki claimed.
However, the next day North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency after numerous gas stations all across the state ran 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???

As a result, Psaki had no choice but to walk back the false statement she made just one day earlier.
“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.”
While the pipeline is ramping its operation back up to 100% in the coming days, Psaki’s blatant attempt to try to make this very real issue seem like a normal occurance is concerning.
First the Biden administration refused to even acknowledge the crisis at the border for weeks on end, now the Biden administration tried to sweep the east coast gas shortage issue under the rug to save face.
With all the crises facing America, our nation is starting to look a lot like the disaster that occurred during Jimmy Carter’s Presidency.
