DeSantis Offers the Solution to Supply-Chain
Issues Newsom Has Exacerbated

We have a supply chain problem in this country, as illustrated by empty shelves and delayed products in every retail chain and small enterprise. Everything from electronic equipment, to appliances, to fresh dog food, is in limited or non-supply because of this. While Governor Gavin Newsom preens, postures, and belches out brags on how the State is doing better than Texas and Florida, he is doing nothing to resolve the issue of ships at the Port of Los Angeles being unable to dock and unload billions of dollars in goods. Tallahassee, FL’s WTVY reports: The coronavirus pandemic has triggered a global supply chain problem. As of Sunday, an estimated 500,000 shipping containers


I LOVE my gov!! Let's go Brandon!!

"The coronavirus pandemic has triggered a global supply chain problem" More like the harebrained overreactions of government officials to the coronavirus pandemic has triggered a global supply chain problem.

The ships will have to go through the Panama Canal, which China controls, but hey, more of our money going to them won't really amount to much. Great job, Gov. DeSantis, we all know Pres. Trump would have been on top of this situation as well. F Joe Biden and the camel he brought with him!

It's all set up like this on purpose. I head somewhere the goal is to have empty shelves by December. That equals no Christmas for many. We've pretty much gone along with this stuff so far, but we've never had food shortages in this country before. You stop allowing people to eat and feed their children - that's a whole other animal. Hungry people will not take this sitting down.

#1 -- As I've been saying for more than a year now, Covid is a respiratory disease, EVERYTHING else that has happened is a REACTION ( overreaction, as you say) to Covid. #2 -- I took note that neither then-President Clinton nor any other high-ranking American representative showed up in Panama when the historic VOLUNTARY transfer of one of the world's most important man-made structures was passed from the world's most powerful nation to a Third World country. Now, one would think that such a thing would be recognized by President Clinton and heavily covered by the mainstream media. But it wasn't. Why? Because Democratic President Jimmy Carter made the STUPID agreement to hand it over and Clinton sat by watching it happen even though Panama had sold off commercial access to the canal to CHINESE interests. Naturally, Clinton and media leftists and lackeys didn't want to draw attention to what is borderline traitorous and incredibly stupid actions or lack thereof by Democrats Carter and Clinton.

That’s a great offer and an outstanding business decision. However in order for the ship to get there at a reasonable cost they will need to go through the Panama Canal and I believe the issue with that is the size of the vessels. I know they have been working to increase the size of the locks but I’m not sure it’s completed

#8–Wrong kind of ports. You need large container facilities with deep (~50') draft, and the ability to unload directly from ship to heavy rail. That’s why the freight goes through Long Beach and New Jersey. Boston has two such docking facilities, but no connection to the railroads (instead, freight travels by truck fifty miles inland to Worcester, and is then loaded onto rail cars). Very little freight passes through Boston Harbor, instead it goes to the facilities in New York and New Jersey, where, although NYC is a day's sailing farther from Europe, it can be directly forwarded by rail. Cities and states love to subsidize the construction of container facilities (lots of good union jobs at good wages to built and operate them, not to mention patronage jobs “administering” the facilities), but lack the deep draft channels or heavy rail connections to make them truly useful.

The control of maintaining the problem gives the governor enough power that he doesn't want any solutions.

It isn't cheap to pass through the Canal. The larger ships can pass through the new locks...that's why they were built. And then what? If Florida ports are too shallow to allow unloading... If that's true, this is just more political showboating.

#2, no, they just sail west from the Asian ports, around the Horn and up to Florida. A bit farther but no problems. Besides, most of those ships are too big to fit through the Panama Canal.

#12. Port Everglades, Port Canaveral, Port of Miami and Port of Jax are rated for the new Panamax ship size limit, about 14,000 TEU. Yes, there are a lot of container ships larger than Panamax. Perhaps this is the problem, making too many oversized container ships for the number of ports that can accommodate them. An "efficient " 23,000 TEU ship sitting at anchor versus two 14,000 TEU Panamax ships quickly unloading and moving on? Perhaps this is the real story. I've not heard the sizes of the backed up ships at Long Beach. I haven't looked into the rail situation in tgese Florida ports, though. Maybe that is the issue.

A 16-year-old student in Wyoming was arrested and the entire school was placed on lockdown — all because she refused to wear a mask. Grace Smith, 16, had already been suspended twice from Laramie High School in Wyoming for refusing to wear masks in class. As the brave student attempted to go to class unmuzzled once again, she was met with police and given a $500 citation. When she was told to leave the school, she refused to comply. At that point, she was handcuffed and arrested. As the situation unfolded, an announcement over the loudspeaker said that “we are in a lockdown, please stay in your rooms.”

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that he will not be requiring his employees to adhere to the county's COVID-19 vaccine mandate due to concerns that he could lose a significant number of his workforce. The mandate, issued by executive order in August, requires all Los Angeles County employees to be fully vaccinated by Oct. 1 but allows religious and medical exemptions. Villanueva, who oversees the largest sheriff’s department in the county with approximately 18,000 employees, said Thursday in a Facebook Live event that his workforce is willing to be terminated if it means that they do not have to get the vaccine.

There are few things more disgusting than when the judicial branch joins in with a vendetta against a defendant because of the political climate. In April, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder, second-degree manslaughter, and third-degree murder in the death of George Floyd. I’m not a fan of police brutality, but what happened to Chauvin at the hands of his own department and the local judiciary was nothing short of using one man as a human sacrifice to appease the mob.

Viruses and other infectious organisms have been around since long before humans walked the planet. While many microorganisms are helpful and necessary for human survival and function, others bring disease and death. Immunity is what prevents humans from being wiped out by a particularly virulent bug. The CDC defines immunity as “protection from an infectious disease. If you are immune to a disease, you can be exposed to it without becoming infected.” How does one achieve immunity? As the CDC explains, there are two ways. Natural immunity is acquired from exposure to the disease organism through infection with the actual disease.

Shortly after the ‘War Against COVID’ began, the government designated two new categories of American citizens -- the largely arbitrary classification of ‘essential’ and ‘nonessential’ workers. Firefighters and paramedics were deemed essential, for good reasons. But now, like their colleagues on the frontline in the medical profession, these brave men and women -- once heralded as heroes -- are now scorned as villains. In the state of California, they have gone from heroes to zeroes in the eyes of despotic Democrats, who have given them an ultimatum: get vaccinated or get fired.

In 1787, an imperial Russian governor named Grigory Potemkin constructed a pretty village facade, a theatre set, actually, that's since become known as a Potemkin Village. His aim was to fool the passing empress, Catherine the Great, into thinking all was well on her journey through war-ravaged Crimea, when in fact it was not. It now looks like the White House has viewed that story as a how-to guide -- this time, to fool the passing voters. According to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air: Today's deep question: Why does Biden use a stage set instead of the White House? The “fake set” question first came up a week ago,

What if people weren't subjected to nonstop body count and 'case' tallies?

California will soon ban the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers after Governor Gavin Newsom signed off on the new law on Saturday. The move is aimed at curbing emissions from a category of small engines on pace to produce more pollution each year than passenger vehicles. The gas-powered equipment to be banned uses small off-road engines, a broad category that includes generators, lawn equipment, pressure washers, chainsaws, weed trimmers and even golf carts. Under the new law these machines must be zero-emissions, meaning they'll have to be battery-powered or plug-in.(Snip)'This is a pretty modest approach to trying

As CNN’s John Berman and Harry Enten put it, the technical term is “not good.” He’s down 10 points among Democrats, 12 among Republicans, but among independents, he’s down 19 points.

The U.S. economy is facing a new threat: rising energy prices. Crude oil has risen 64% this year to a seven-year high. Natural-gas prices have roughly doubled over the past six months to a seven-year high. Heating oil has risen 68% this year. Prices at the pump are up nearly a dollar over the past 12 months to a national average just over $3 a gallon. Coal prices are at records. Higher energy prices could push up inflation in coming months, damp consumer spending on other products and services, and ultimately slow the U.S. recovery, economists say. “For consumers it’s

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members remain unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Pentagon's first compliance deadlines near, with lopsided rates across the individual services and a spike in deaths among military reservists illustrating how political division over the shots has seeped into a nonpartisan force with unambiguous orders. Overall, the military's vaccination rate has climbed since August, when Defense Department leaders, acting on a directive from President Joe Biden, informed the nation's 2.1 million troops that immunization would become mandatory, exemptions would be rare and those who refuse would be punished. Yet troops' response has been scattershot, according to data assessed by The Washington Post.
