THIS IS REAL: Biden Says 2021 Was ‘Strongest First-Year Economic Track Record’ in 50 Years

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.30.21

President Biden touted his economic record from his home in Delaware this week; claiming “one analyst” described 2021 as the “strongest first year economic track record” in the last half century.

“We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years. Let’s keep the progress going,” claimed the President.

Biden backtracked from previous comments Tuesday when he vowed to promote a “federal plan to tackle Omicron” despite claiming hours earlier there was no “federal solution” to the pandemic.

The exchange occurred between the Commander-in-Chief and Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson.

“One word of concern or encouragement for your team is that as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions,” Hutchinson said. “The production of 500 million rapid tests that will be distributed by the federal government is great, but obviously that dries up the supply chain for the solutions that we might offer as governor.”

“There is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level,” Biden responded.

Biden offered a different opinion Tuesday.

“My Administration has the back of every governor fighting COVID-19 in their state. Last week, I rolled out a federal plan to tackle Omicron by adding vaccination and booster capacity, hospital equipment, staff, and more. We’re going to get through this by working together,” said the President.

CARTER 2.0: Southeast Gas Stations Ration Fuel, Cars Line-Up, Drivers Wait for Hours

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.12.21

Americans in the southeastern section of the country had flashbacks of the 1979 Oil Crisis this week when gas stations began rationing fuel in the aftermath of a major cyberattack against a pivotal pipeline.

“The closure of the 5,500-mile Colonial Pipeline, which carries more than 100 million gallons of fuel from Texas to New Jersey each day, has stretched into its fifth day,” reports the New York Post.

“It sparked wild scenes of panic buying across Georgia, Florida, Virginia and South Carolina — with North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp even declaring states of emergency in their areas. Kemp also issued an executive order suspending Georgia’s gas tax through Saturday to help offset the costs of higher fuel prices,” adds the newspaper.

“I DON’T HAVE ANY GAS AND THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA DOESN’T HAVE GAS!! WHAT IN THE 2021 IS GOING ON !!” one panicked driver tweeted.

“I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said another.

A cyberattack against a major energy pipeline along the East Coast caused fuel shortages in states like Florida, Virginia, and South Carolina Tuesday as security experts scrambled to get the key piece of infrastructure back online.

“Drivers along parts of the East Coast are feeling the immediate effects of the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline following a ransomware attack, reports CBS News’ Laura Podesta. Some waited an hour or more on lines at gas stations before filling up or learning the pumps had run dry,” reports CBS News.

“It was unbelievable. When I was driving today, I thought it was a catastrophe coming! I’ve seen all these cars waiting and I was like, ‘OMG. I have to fill my tank up!’” said one local in South Carolina.

Gas prices jumped six cents within 24 hours, raising the national average to nearly $3 per gallon.

“If this outrage goes past the end of the week … prices could spike pretty dramatically,” said Kevin Book of Clearview Energy Partners.
