Biden might deploy NG to ease supply chain issues

| October 22, 2021

With dozens of ships sitting waiting at ports, shipping containers being dumped in residential neighborhoods, and a missing in action Secretary of Transportation, Biden was asked at a CNN Town Hall if he would activate the National Guard to help. Naturally, the now perennial favorite solution of the Democrats for any imaginable contingency, he’s considering it “absolutely! Positively, I’ll do that.”

But wait. Ol’ Joe’s handlers, the people who apparently are actually running the country, say that it’s not really under consideration. You can’t make this up.

Before you say that this is some far-right propaganda (you know who you are…), this is coming from the far-left CNN. Though to be fair, you should consider the source since CNN is The most trusted name in Fake News and constantly lies to its viewers.

CNN reports;

President Joe Biden said Thursday evening he’s considering deploying the National Guard to help ease stress on the US supply chain as it prompts growing concern about the economy, prompting a White House official to swiftly throw cold water on the plan.

“Yes, absolutely, positively. I will do that,” Biden said when asked by moderator Anderson Cooper during CNN’s town hall in Baltimore if he was prepared to call up the National Guard. The President said he would specifically consider calling up National Guard members for trucking to help solve a shortage of drivers “if we can’t move — increase the number of truckers, which we are in a process of doing.”

A White House official, however, told CNN shortly after that the administration is not actively considering deploying the National Guard despite Biden’s comments. “Requesting the use of the National Guard at the state level is under the purview of governors and we are not actively pursuing the use of the National Guard on a federal level,” the official said.

fascism
făsh′ĭz″əm
noun
-A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, a capitalist economy subject to stringent governmental controls, violent suppression of the opposition, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism

-A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.

-Oppressive, dictatorial control.

So… Remember the joys and excesses of ‘capitalism’? Neither do I, Komrade.

Get ready for ration cards. I’ve told you this, and I’ll keep repeating it until we all ‘get it’.

Da, comrade, is whole plan!

“Due to pressing schedule needs, President Biden will no longer take part in town hall meetings. Your understanding in the matter is appreciated.”

He declared war on the Free People of the United States via health diktats, and promised one with China…. all while allowing NATO to piss off Russia by Ukraine interventions?

Naw. This is fine. Totally fine. Just if you find anyone reporting otherwise, please report them to the local Political Officer.

I bet.

There was lots of splaining afterwards. Apparently this isn’t happening.

“We are not actively pursuing the use of the national guard on a federal level,” a White House official told Fox News.

But wait there is more:

China Joe said:

Cooper… pressing again on whether the U.S. would defend Taiwan from a Chinese attack, to which Biden replied: “Yes, we have a commitment to do that.”

But then….

But a White House spokesperson on Friday told Fox News that the president “was not announcing any change in our policy.”

“There is no change in our policy,” the spokesperson told Fox News. “The U.S. defense relationship with Taiwan is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act.”

Sure, send in the National Guard. Because, you know, the thing…

But where to send them to? Los Angeles and um, uh, umh, uh….

Uh, I thought part of the issue here was that non-union owner-operators aren’t allowed to work the California ports like Long Beach. I don’t see how this will work. I can definitely see the Longshoremen’s Union picketing/blockading the ports if they try to use National Guard vehicles to move cargo.

The Stranger

Maybe, but how do they get on the property? The Longshoremen and the Teamsters aren’t going to take this lying down. It’s part of the reason that these ports don’t run 24 hour automated operations.

The Stranger

Another issue is that if you’re thinking of using Guard to drive commercial
vehicles like that in a duty status, I don’t think that the licensing system can accommodate that. A military license spells out what vehicles you can drive by type or designation. I don’t think it’s the same thing to put “tractor trailer” as a generic designator as you would for “GSA” or “15 pax Van.” I wouldn’t want to assume that level of risk if I was a transportation company commander.

“By Direction of the President, you are ordered to operate such vehicles are necessary to implement Operation Convoy, without regard to any other restrictions or regulations, which I hereby suspend for the duration of this Emergency and for this specific purpose and Operation, until such time as I rescind this Order. Signed…”

I believe he can do that, perhaps with other “findings” or wording.

If Congress doesn’t freak, a court really can’t stop it. “…Now let him enforce it..”

The Soviets proved decisively that not even an Army can make state-mandated stupidity functional.

And the Lunatic Left is now in full mode “order the peons to make our stupidity work” , so why not order the Armed Forces to make the stupidity work. And in no way are the Left capable of admitting that.

And next, the “quit whining” will become less and less a request.

SFC D

I see it too. And it’s gonna be a hell of a lot of fun to watch. How many of the NG troops are union members that are gonna object to essentially being scabs? How big a barricade are the Teamsters gonna build out of shipping containers? How many just-barely-trained drivers are gonna cause mayhem in the streets and freeways? Nothing good can come of this.

RGR 4-78

What about the first NG driver killed in a cargo hijacking?

Talk about a shit storm.

David

May as well ask what all those NG drivers will be doing when the overhead crane operators are pissed off. They are the real bottleneck – there is a reason why both LB and LA are in the bottom 30 of the world’s most efficient ports.

SFC D

Pissed off crane operators will stack a 4 connex high wall and then go home.

11B-Mailclerk

And if the “home” they go to is a PW camp run by MPs?

You are assuming things are run under rules that are -not- the ones in effect.

Magic word: “Insurrection!”

Cant force the longshoremen and crane drivers to work. But you -can- coerce them by, say, arresting their “co-conspirator” families.

And the live belts in the MP MGs will cut down on physical confrontations.

Navy has crane operators, yes?

How many ordinary folks will cheer “ending an illicit strike in the middle of a National Emergency” ?

Remember, they are -not- going to be playing by your rules. You will likely be playing by others.

Remember that last bit. It is -really- important that you know the actual rules.

So, how many times so far has a President used the Armed Forces to break strikes?

The Stranger

This President is owned lock, stock, and barrel by the unions. We’re not going to have a “Reagan fires the air traffic controllers” situation here. The scenario you describe won’t happen, especially since his people are hard at work finding a way to blame this on the last guy. Basically, they want to be seen to be “doing something” without actually fixing the problem. Hence the bullshit of having the ports run “24/7”…that only applies to one terminal out of the six at Long Beach and only from Monday through Thursday. Kind of like the “consulting” de-motivational poster I once saw, “If you can’t come up with a solution, there’s money to be made in prolonging the problem”. Someone is going to get a payoff, and we consumers and taxpayers are going to get stuck with the bill.

Boiling Mad CPO

Good Lord – While fighting fires, assisting in floods, directing traffic, o yeah , war fighting, now they are expected to fight with the unions.

Makes one wonder why one would become a National Guardsman

“Never underestimate Joe’s ability to f’ things up” BHO

Hmmm…My Class A CDL is still current, tho my DOT Card is perspired. Don’t have a Teamsters Card, but I was a member of the CWA. Wonder how close those Long Beach Union Goons look at that stuff. Think I could arrange the routings to end up at OAM’s, Ex-PH2’s, nobunny’s, or maybe farmgirl’s every now and again? Spent a lot of time as a Road Warrior “back in the dayz” and swore I’d never do that again. However, ending up at any of the above…well…I’d take the hit. (Take THAT Chip!)

The Chinese Communists control a lot of the manufacturing of products we use on a day to day basis. They control a lot of the world wide shipping. They have control of the Panama Canal. They have bought controlling interest in livestock production AND processing (think Smithfield). They have bought up producing farmland. They unleashed a virus on the world. Now we have shortages of all kinds of stuff and what is out there is steadily increasing in price. They have bought and paid for US politicians at the highest level of our grubermint. Anybody see a pattern here?

Hey, as long as you’re thinking of being “The Snowman”, go ahead and make a “tactical acquisition” of some of Pottsville, PA’s finest and drop a trailer of that nectar in my front yard. Don’t worry about unloading, just drop the trailer and head out. I might even invite you in to share a sizer!

Sixer! Fucking iPhone.

That sounds like a hell of a plan Stranger! How can I get in on such a deal???

I can give you 80 thousand ways you can get in on that deal.

Yes indeed, I could use a Yuengling or twelve.

Joe Biden said that he drove tractor trailers. He can hop in the cab and Camel Toe can ride shotgun.

The Stranger

Hack,
The idea is to get a critical item delivered, not have a tractor trailer full of vitally important Class VI supplies ending up in a fiery heap at the bottom of a ravine! Besides, the lot lizards wouldn’t appreciate the competition from Cackles.

Meanwhile, Pete Buttplug (Transportation Secretary) remains on parental leave, all while a major transportation crisis is brewing in the country.

Just what qualifications does Butt-googly have to be the Secretary of Transportation other than being the LGBTQWERTYUIOP quota for the Joke Biteme administration?

He has the same qualifications as Jennifer Granholm does to be Energy Secretary, none at all.

Someday, the politicians will learn that the National Guard is not a solution to their domestic policy fuckups.

Guess what else came from CNN. CNN. Not Fox News. CNN. “Fact-Checking Biden’s CNN Town Hall In Baltimore” https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/22/politics/fact-check-joe-biden-town-hall/index.html “President Joe Biden participated Thursday in a CNN town hall in Baltimore, taking questions from anchor Anderson Cooper and local residents about his legislative agenda and a variety of other topics.” “Biden made some false claims, along with making other claims that could have used additional context. He also made one claim, an assertion that he has visited the southern border in the past, that CNN couldn’t immediately verify and that the White House did not immediately provide evidence to support.” “Here’s a fact check of some of his claims from Thursday’s town hall.” ” Biden And The Border”: “A college student asked Biden: “Given that it’s nearly been a year into your campaign, why haven’t you been to the southern border of our country?” “After Biden addressed another immigration question from the student but ignored that one, Cooper followed up. Biden then responded, “I’ve been there before, and I haven’t — I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the — but the whole point of it is: I haven’t had a whole hell of lot of time to get down.” “Biden explained that he has been spending time inspecting hurricane damage and “traveling around the world,” then added, “But I plan on — now, my wife, Jill, has been down. She’s been on both sides of the river. She’s seen the circumstances there.” “Facts… Read more »

What are you?’” the president continued, grabbing his cheek. “And I thought the Secret Service was going to shoot him.” “I said, ‘No, no, no, he’s good! He’s good!’” Biden added. “True story.” “The president’s “true story” seems to be anything but – Fox News previously reported that the story does not add up.” “Negri’s obituary states he retired from Amtrak in 1993, while Biden was still a senator.

Joey baby wouldn’t know the truth if it ran its nuts across his face.
He’s either:
A) attempting to be relatable
-or-
2) suffering so badly from episodic memory loss he doesn’t know what decade it is

Maybe a combo of both. Anyway one cuts it, dude shouldn’t be running Bingo at the elderly care facility let ‘lone our intentionally-subverted nation.

This is Joe:

Stage 4: Mild Dementia
At this stage, individuals may start to become socially withdrawn and show changes in personality and mood. Denial of symptoms as a defense mechanism is commonly seen in stage 4. Behaviors to look for include:

Decreased knowledge of current and/or recent events
Difficulty remembering things about one’s personal history
Decreased ability to handle finances, arrange travel plans, etc.
Disorientation
Difficulty recognizing faces and people
In stage 4 dementia, individuals have no trouble recognizing familiar faces or traveling to familiar locations. However, patients in this stage will often avoid challenging situations in order to hide symptoms or prevent stress or anxiety.

Stage 5: Moderate Dementia
Patients in stage 5 need some assistance in order to carry out their daily lives. The main sign for stage 5 dementia is the inability to remember major details such as the name of a close family member or a home address. Patients may become disoriented about the time and place, have trouble making decisions, and forget basic information about themselves, such as a telephone number or address.

While moderate dementia can interfere with basic functioning, patients at this stage do not need assistance with basic functions such as using the bathroom or eating. Patients also still have the ability to remember their own names and generally the names of spouses and children.
