What Could Possibly Go Wrong? Gates Behind Releasing Millions Of 'Gene Edited' Mosquitos In Florida Keys
According to him, the shutdown of the network, which transports gasoline and other fuel through 10 states between Texas and New York, has inevitably affected supply.
“There are inflationary pressures rising across the US due to money printing and increased consumer spending,” said Tucker.
“A fuel shortage is a nightmare for anyone who remembers the 1970s. Life is about to get very scary in the US – a direct consequence of a series of terrible policy decisions dating from 2018 to the present,” the analyst told RT, adding that the nation seems to be returning to those days.
However, according to the president of Lipow Oil Associates, Andy Lipow, the effect of the outage is regional. He pointed out that the Colonial Pipeline primarily serves the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the United States.
The outage caused rising fuel prices with the national average climbing to more than $3 a gallon for the first time in six years.
However, the current crisis shouldn’t be attributed to the pipeline shutdown alone, according to Jeffrey A. Tucker of the American Institute for Economic Research.
“It’s in those regions that we are now beginning to see gasoline shortages at the pump that are becoming more widespread… In the rest of the country, fuel supplies are unaffected,” said Lipow.
“We’ve already seen in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states the retail price of gasoline has risen eight cents a gallon and it could go even higher if gasoline supplies are trucked in from longer distances from terminals outside of the region,” he added.
We are now living through the initial stages of hyperinflation and the collapse of the debt-based dollar, as prices on nearly everything continue to skyrocket by the day. The massive printing of trillions of dollars by the Federal Reserve — and catapulting of that money into the economy via “stimulus” handouts — is overheating demand for commodities like wood, copper, aluminum and iron. At the same time, the national economic infrastructure that delivers goods is crumbling, due to the free covid stimulus money reward workers for staying home and avoiding productive jobs.
So we now have a government that’s destroying the money supply and destroying the productive economy with endless money printing. The end result is not in doubt: Runaway hyperinflation, scarcity of food, fuel and other goods, and the accelerating collapse of the small businesses that power this nation.
Ultimately, this also means the collapse of major U.S. cities into chaos and lawlessness as the last remaining vestiges of civilized society melt into nothing.

The Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) organization announced on May 11 that its members fired a burst of "Badr-3" missiles into Israel, killing two women and injuring dozens others. The announcement was made by PIJ's military wing, Al-Quds Brigades, after the group and other terror factions in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas, fired hundreds of rockets into Israel within 24 hours.
The "Badr-3" missile is an Iranian-made missile that appeared for the first time on the battlefields of the Middle East in April 2019, when the Iranian-backed Houthi militia used it during the fighting in war-torn Yemen.
The "Badr-3" missile carries an explosive warhead weighing 250 kg, and has a range of more than 160 km, according to Debka, an Israeli website that reports on military issues. "The missile explodes within 20m of target and releases a 1,400-piece shower of shrapnel fragments," the website reported.
Until a few years ago, PIJ, Hamas and other Gaza-based terrorist groups used to receive rockets and other weapons directly from Iran -- smuggled in by sea or across the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. For some years now, however, according to Israeli intelligence sources, these terrorist groups have used years of experience with Iranian and other rockets to develop their own versions.
Over the past 15 years, Iran became the most dominant weapon supplier to Hamas and PIJ. The major smuggling route was from Iran to Sudan, on to Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula, and from there to the Gaza Strip. These weapons include long range rockets, mortar shells, anti-tank missiles, tons of standard explosives and raw materials for explosive production.
Last year, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei admitted for the first time that his country was supplying the Palestinian terrorist groups with weapons. "Iran realized Palestinian fighters' only problem was lack of access to weapons," Khamenei said in an online speech.
"With divine guidance and assistance, we planned, and the balance of power has been transformed in Palestine, and today the Gaza Strip can stand against the aggression of the Zionist enemy and defeat it."
Khamenei went on to offer the reason why Iran was sending rockets, missiles and tons of explosives to the Gaza Strip: "The Zionist regime is a deadly, cancerous tumor in the region. It will undoubtedly be uprooted and destroyed."
Turkey's Erdogan: 'Teach (Israel) A Deterrent Lesson' - Send 'International Peacekeepers To Safeguard Palestinians'
Erdogan and Putin call for work to be done on sending international
peacekeepers to the region to help safeguard Palestinians,
a proposal Turkey has made since 2018.
There were unconfirmed reports of Arab residents of Jaffa, a mixed Arab-Jewish city near Tel Aviv, celebrating at the air raid sirens.
Breitbart News’ own Israel correspondent, reporting from a bomb shelter, noted that local Internet access had been lost amid ongoing riots. Residents were exchanging information by ordinary cell phone, and reported that the sky was “on fire” with repeated explosions as Iron Dome missile batteries attempted to intercept the incoming barrage.
Palestinian terrorists continued to fire rockets into populated areas of Israel overnight.
Hamas admitted to firing 15 rockets towards Dimona, Israel the home of the Dimono nuclear plant.
Of course, a strike there would be cataclysmic.
On Tuesday the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee held a hearing on the efforts to combat COVID-19.
As Cristina reported earlier, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into Dr. Fauci about funding the Wuhan laboratory in Wuhan, China.In May 2020, TGP reported this: The leader of the US task force overseeing the country’s response to the China coronavirus, Dr. Tony Fauci, was the one who funded the Wuhan bat virus work and kept it going.
Since May 2020, The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on Dr. Anthony Fauci’s likely illegal funding of coronavirus projects at the Wuhan Virology Center.
It is clear that they successfully isolated the coronavirus in the lab and were actively experimenting with species-to-species transmission.
Rand Paul confronted Fauci on Tuesday: “Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?”
Arrogant Fauci shot back at the Kentucky lawmaker: “Senator Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan institute.”
** The video is here.
Tuesday night on Rob Schmitt Tonight Senator Rand Paul responded to Dr. Fauci’s statements from today’s hearing.
Senator Paul rightfully accused Dr. Fauci of being dishonest.
Senator Rand Paul: He was being dishonest. In fact, one of the main papers published by Dr. Shi in the Wuhan Institute says in the byline, “Funded by the NIH,” and funded specifically by the NIAI which is AID, which is Fauci’s group. So, no, he completely dissembled on that. He’s leading you on to believe something that’s not true.
