As fear mongering on cyber security gains traction, as is the case right now, you can be certain that there are other disingenuous motives to promote Technocrat goals in hopes of capturing the world into a Scientific Dictatorship. ⁃ TN Editor

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Sunday called for more public-private cooperation on cyber defenses and said U.S. adversaries already are capable of using cyber intrusions to shut down the U.S. power grid.

“I think that there are very malign actors who are trying,” she said. She added: “Even as we speak, there are thousands of attacks on all aspects of the energy sector and the private sector generally.”

Granholm noted, without mentioning the company by name, that Colonial Pipeline Co. was hit in May with a crippling cyberattack by a ransomware group. Colonial temporarily shut down its gasoline distribution networks in the South before paying $4.4 million to the hackers. She urged energy companies to resist paying ransom.

“The bottom line is, people, whether you’re private sector, public sector, whatever, you shouldn’t be paying ransomware attacks, because it only encourages the bad guys,” she said.

Granholm even spoke in favor of having a law that would ban paying such ransom, though she said, “I don’t know whether Congress or the president is at that point.”

Asked whether American adversaries have the capability now of shutting down the U.S. power grid, she said: “Yes, they do.”

Operation Polygon – grid will go down – World Economic Forum – just a little early but the big “test” like Event 201 is soon to get started from the front group of the UN and international Central Bank – the Crown – City of London Corp along with their puppets around the world. https://www.innertemple.org.uk/who-we-are/history/

Unfortunately for all of life, these are all “tests”. Event 201 was a test and Gov. Cuomo got caught calling it a test to the NY National Guard (thank the guard’s man that took the video). https://www.weforum.org/projects/cyber-polygon official site is https://cyberpolygon.com I’m sure that the term test, mistake, we did not know and other false narratives will try to limit any liability of the culprits that are the actual leaders of this entire omnicide of living things as this goes far beyond people and is loaded with misdirections as to who is at fault. Right now, the elimination of the… Read more »

Leaks are all a part of the game for the elites. They use them to sow division. This war that we’re in, and getting deeper into, is based on different levels of information. The more informed you are, in most case, the more of a loon you look like to the uninformed. They have always used this tactic. My granfather went through the same things in the forties, calling out communism in the US. No one believed him, and he was seen as a cranky nutcase, depite the fact that he rescued people from white slavery.
