Dozens of cargo ships anchored off the coasts of Los Angeles and New York face shocking wait times of up to four weeks and railyards and trucking routes are hopelessly clogged due to the lack of manpower to unload goods – with an expert warning that the government needs to intervene or face spiraling inflation and unemployment. That’s what we’ve heard on the mainstream media! Every excuse given but the obvious: The Covid vaccine mandate labor shortage is preventing goods from being delivered.


Over 100 ships today, up from 80 yesterday, wait off Los Angeles coast to deliver goods. The Covid vaccine mandate labor shortage is thee real reason for this crisis. (another conspiracy proven right tomorrow) The media also ignores the real reason for this crisis as well as this map that doesn't look good!

This isn't difficult to believe. We have seen local shortages on items (grocery and otherwise) that are never in short supply. Even basic staples. Prices are through the roof on everything. Delivery times pretty much suck now too.

It’s a war on small business, the large companies companies like Home Depot, Walmart, etc. have secured full ocean vessels for their product due to the lack of capacity. This capacity crunch raises $$ to levels we have never seen before. Small bus. Pay more & cannot securespace

Our government has done two things that have worsened the problem. Our government pays people to stay home, claim COVID hardship, and not work. Our government fires people who are working that don't want to get the COVID vaccine. Its all quite deliberate, and is designed to make society dependent on government for its very existence. Had enough? its going to get worse. The people running the country are dumb and dishonest.

Slowly but surely, Biden and his masters, are destroying with a purpose the "infrastructure" of America. BHO's Great American Reset is in progress. At this point, the Republicans are helpless or complicit. The Democrats are full bore. How can it be stopped? Don't think it can. 2024 is three and half years away. By then America will be Venezuela on steroids.

We had a deck project finished in mid-July that's been waiting for posts so railings can be connected to complete the $70,000 project. But we're told the posts are sitting in the LA harbor. They were ordered in June. Our contactor can't get final payment until they are installed. I'm hearing that football stadium chant.

Wuhan flu mandates? These guys can’t unload ships but one can go to a birthday party on the Vineyard, riot under the guise of BLM, go to packed stadiums for baseball and football, but quarantine dock workers if they get the sniffles. Something else has to be going on here with the unions. What’s going on is the same as a strike, and since the Dems are in power, they are not going to take action because that would upset their biggest donors. You won’t be getting your new iPhone or other goodies for Christmas at this rate.

There are two other reasons for this. The stock market, which includes our 401k plans. We all want a 10-20% return on our savings and major corporations move manufacturing off shore to maximize revenue. We, the consumers, demand the lowest prices on everything that we purchase. Kinda hard to manufacture cheaply with all of the taxes, regulations, insurance costs and higher labor costs. Throw in the unions and you have the perfect excuse to move off shore. So long as we are dependent on China, Korea, Taiwan, etc for manufactured goods, ..........

If you want your ships unloaded, route them to the Gulf of Mexico. LA is a rat infested stronghold ran by communists. With Newsom and the left in charge, I strongly advise avoiding the West Coast.

So, Joe kills manufacturing here and then slows imported goods to a crawl at our Ports of Entrys. Kind of reminds me how he wants us all to give up our personal autos and trucks so we can be at the mercy of the bus drivers' union. How about, "No." Learn from the illegals: They have a robust and varied UNDERGROUND economy.

Where are labor statistics? Are longshoremen working? If port of LA has full staffing of say 1,000 workers a shift, are 500 showing up? Should they hire another 500? Are cranes operating 24 hours a day? Or trucks waiting on containers? Are trains waiting on containers? I see maps of all the ships, but where are things operating at less than capacity? Do they need 5,000 trucks a day, and on only 2,000 show up? Are RR crews not working? I buy my bacon locally. I buy lumber domestically. We don't import lumber from Korea, nor bacon, nor other stuff 'grown locally'. These 'stories' have no HARD FACTS of where the bottlenecks are.

Re: "where the bottlenecks are" the article says that it is in the labor to offload the ships. If this is like any other business that I have seen, it is because people are being paid to NOT WORK by the government. All US businesses are seriously disrupted by labor shortages caused by the government paying people to stay home.

The Communists have been warning for generations that Capitalism is unsustainable and will collapse of its own imbalances, and they have been waiting for that moment to impose their system in its place. But it just won't collapse with a discreet nudge, so they're outright strangling the supply chain to death with arbitrary decrees. Feeling general contempt for politics (particularly the Marxists masquerading as the "news media") these days...

“Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste” Rahm Emanuel was the origin of that crack and it's one that Democrats have run to every chance its happened whether it be the "Great Recession" or "Hurricane Katrina" or any subsequent national or world event. If they're out of power they use it as a weapon against the one in the hot seat; if they're in power they use it as a lever to grab more power and push more Federal dollars into leftist organizations for money laundering purposes back to Democrats. Democrats are creating an Economic Crisis: Inflation, shortage of goods, labor shortage due to Federal COVID pay. Democrats are creating a Housing Crisis: Inflation is driving the cost of homes soaring beyond average buying power AND the economic crisis is reducing builders' ability to finance more. Democrats are creating a Health Crisis: Allowing millions of untested, disease-carrying ILLEGALS into the country. Mandating experimental vaccines across the citizenry, while allowing hundreds of thousands ILLEGALS to come into this nation untested (!) and resettled in communities surreptitiously, ensuring additional outbreaks, ad infinitum. Democrats are creating a Law Enforcement Crisis: Feds are creating and actually manning terrorist organizations promoting public insurrection and violence in cities across America. They're using CIA tactics for overthrow of foreign governments right here in the USA. They are using our magnificent electronic spying apparatus at the NSA against Americans, sweeping up all citizen communications in clear violation of the 4th Amendment, and waging war against American Patriots under the guise of "anti-terrorism" (and how do socialist-communists in charge define "terrorism"?) A Constitutional showdown is coming... the Feds have arrogated too much power over freedom loving Americans.

I have not been in the US for 2 years. I recently was able to visit family and was surprised to see empty grocery shelves in the land of plenty. Items like pasta, cranberry juice (not refrigerated), and laundry detergent were scarce if available at all. And the prices!!!! I feel bad for people on a fixed income. I live in a European country where a lot of non-perishable goods are imported and I have seen no empty shelves or lack of availability of goods. And prices have not increased.

Noted many container ships hanging about in Santa Monica Bay 2 weeks ago. This transportation ban is going to be a disaster in the coming months. Biden/PelosiNephew are leading US to the poorhouse. They pay Freeloader Democrats not to work, Illegals and Muslims to come in, and prevent our unvaccinated truckers from working. Stop all vaccine mandates now, or we will collapse the economy.

The government wants us to cut down on emissions. Yet China produces these items with electric made from coal fired plants, for instance solar panels. Weather here this winter is predicted cold and snowy yet natural gas and electric prices will be high. I predict more wood being burned creating more pollution. Think how much energy is being wasted with these ships just sitting, deteriorating and stockpiles on runways dumped and waiting for pickup.

This isn't something that will stop any time soon. Those ships when unloaded are supposed to go back and load up again. That isn'y happening. This could go on for a year or more even after the ships are unloaded.

If you are reading these words and are not yet up-to-speed on Cloward-Piven, the Great Reset and Agenda 21 take some time today and get informed! Don't use Google ...which filters info ... or Wiki which slants things .... use another search engine like Duck Duck Go. The main stream media doesn't want to report this supply chain problem because they don't want to be held responsible for the food riots, toilet paper hoarding (again) and the huge drop off in stacked shelves. They and their friends probably have a two year supply of everything they need in their basements by now.

Adding to all of that, I've seen several articles saying that China is now rationing electrical power, and that a Significant percentage of factories have been shut down for at least a month. And those who blame this situation on Joe Biden, I say you are way off target. Joe couldn't plan a successful convenience store robbery, much less this global conspiracy. Even his direct puppetmasters from the 0bama Cartel couldn't pull off something this big. (although they are thrilled to go along with it ). No, the REAL elites are behind this. Klaus Schwab and his friends at the World Economic Forum, Bill Gates, George Soros, and Blackrock and similar multi trillion dollar hedgefund type organizations are the ones behind this.

There has been ongoing Labor Issues at all of the west coast ports, Blue on Blue, Union on Union as well as Union on Govt owned dock facilities, Not just the longshoreman, but also the crane guys, electrical guys, and the various truckers groups...add into this mix that the price of fuel doubled, tolls shot up, and few people showing up locally to unload at the destination. Govt inspectors have been slooooow processing incoming cargo, short staffed with many on Medical Leave, vacation, drawing Covid bonus pay instead of working, after all they don't have to pay rent anymore either...It isn't just the goods you "Think" are effected, nearly all books are now printed and bound in China, Fall into Christmas is "Book" season, not just for gifts, but also school books. Even just the adhesives to afix labels on US manufactured/packaged goods is getting scarce/unattainable, cannot go to market until the Govt. mandated warning labels are attached. I didn't realize until I went to pickup my weekly BBQ that there was a Vinegar shortage, none of the sauces requiring it were available(scratch that order of pulled pork, make it brisket instead), nor was vinegar slaw. "Drop a pebble in a pond and the ripples effect the shore"--Biden pitched a Bowling Ball into a Bathtub, he seems to think the Cure is to throw in three more.

Social media users did not appreciate new economic data that revealed U.S. inflation is at its highest rate in 13 years, pinning the blame squarely on the Biden White House. The data comes on the heels of the poor September jobs report. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 194,000 workers in September as the unemployment rate fell to 4.8%, the Labor Department reported. But economists were expecting the addition of 500,000 new jobs. The latest inflation number, provided by Washington Post economic correspondent Heather Long, did not improve the administration's image.

Donald Trump had an incredible legacy as president, but sometimes he can be his own worst enemy. More broadly, as the leader of the Republican Party, he’s ensuring that his self-inflicted wounds damage not only his own (presumed) electoral chances but those of other Republicans as well. Clearly, Trump has yet to get over the fact that he is not the one currently sitting in the White House following the 2020 election. It’s true that millions of Americans wish he were currently the president, enacting policies to make America great. But as they say, if wishes were horses, then

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) on Friday condemned the process that led to the redistricting of his House seat ahead of the next election, calling it “anything but transparent.” “I have proudly served six terms in the U.S. House and it has been an honor to do so,” Kinzinger said. “Following the release of the new congressional maps for Illinois, my team and I will spend some time looking them over and reviewing all of the options, including those outside the House. This redistricting process has been anything but transparent, which comes as no surprise to anyone. I believe the people

Despite President Biden’s announcement Wednesday that the severely backlogged Port of Los Angeles would expand into 24/7 operating hours—similar to the Port of Long Beach—port officials are saying the backlog will continue until the summer of 2022. Noel Hacegaba, deputy executive director of the Port of Long Beach, said expanding the ports’ operating hours will not impact the supply chain disruptions given the continued shortage of truck drivers, chassis equipment, and warehouse operations and space. “We think it’ll be summer of 2022 before we clear all 60 ships,” Hacegaba told The Epoch Times Oct. 14. “Of course, if we take some measures now, and everyone in the supply chain starts expanding

One of the reasons the monarch has aged so gracefully is that she follows the advice of her nutritionists and doctors, but she wasn't very happy when she was recently asked to drop her daily cocktail. (Snip) As per various reports, the queen enjoys a gin cocktail in the morning, followed by a glass of wine or champagne with lunch, and another glass of champagne plus a dry martini in the evening.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday on CNN’s “The Lead” that rising prices were a “good thing” because it meant more people were buying goods.Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Inflation is skyrocketing as I don’t need to tell you. The prices for home heating costs, cars, groceries, furniture, rent, gasoline are hitting Americans right in the wallet. The White House response has been generally to say, ‘Hey, inflation shows we’re coming out of the recession. It’s a good sign.'”He continued, “President Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain enthusiastically retreated an economist who said in part ‘Most of the economic problems, inflation, supply chains, et cetera, are high-class problems.’
