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.

    {the crafty som’bish known as Roh sets his trap…}

    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’.

      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.”

  5. The Stranger says:

    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.

    • Mason says:

      Only thing I can think is they’d use NG as drivers. Military on orders don’t have to have a Class A CDL to drive a truck. You could just have them run through a 2 or 4 hour class to get it on their mil DL and they’d be good to go. Wouldn’t be subjected to any CDL testing, log books, hours of service, etc.

      • The Stranger says:

        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 says:

        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.

        • 11B-Mailclerk says:

          “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 says:

      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 says:

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

        Talk about a shit storm.

      • David says:

        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 says:

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

          • 11B-Mailclerk says:

            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 says:

              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.

    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

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?

    “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 First: CNN could not immediately find any evidence that Biden has previously visited the southern border, and the White House has not specified when this visit supposedly occurred. Also, it’s worth noting that Jill Biden’s last visit to the border was in December 2019, during the presidential campaign, not as first lady.”

    “Since we don’t know what the President did on every day of a political career that began in 1970, we can’t currently declare he was making a false statement when he said he has previously visited the border. But we couldn’t immediately locate any news stories about such a visit, and the White House hasn’t provided corroborating information. A White House spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a CNN request late Thursday night.”

    “The subject of Biden visiting the southern border came up at a September press briefing from White House press secretary Jen Psaki. When a Fox News reporter asked if Biden had been to the border, Psaki said, “I will have to get — look back in my history books and check the times he’s been to the southern border.” When the reporter said they had not uncovered evidence of Biden visiting at any time, Psaki softened her language, saying, “I can check and see when the last time or when he may have been.”

    “Two days later, when the reporter asked why Biden hadn’t “ever” visited the southern border, Psaki didn’t dispute the assertion, instead saying that Biden believes “the most constructive role we can play is by helping to push immigration reform forward, helping reform the broken policies of the last several years, and listening to his team of advisors, who have been to the border multiple times, about what the path forward should look like.”

    “Though Biden mentioned foreign travel as one of the reasons he has not gone to the border as President to date, he has made only one trip abroad during the first nine months of his pandemic-era term — a June trip to Europe. He is scheduled for another Europe trip next weekend for a G20 summit and United Nations climate conference.”

    “Tax Rates”

    “After he was asked a question about taxes on the wealthy, Biden said that under “this present tax code, the highest tax rate is 35 percent.”

    “Facts First: Biden was wrong. The top marginal rate is actually 37%; 35% is the second-highest marginal rate. The 37 percent rate affects individual single taxpayers with taxable incomes greater than $523,600 and married couples filing jointly with taxable incomes greater than $628,300. The 35 percent rate affects individuals with taxable incomes greater than $209,425 and marred joint filers at incomes greater than $418,850.”

    “Vaccinations”

    “Biden said, “When I first was elected, there were only 2 million people who had Covid shots in the United States of America — had the vaccine. Now we got 190 million, because I went out and bought everything I could do and buy in sight, and it worked.”

    “Facts First: Biden’s “2 million people” assertion was inaccurate no matter which way you parse it — slightly off if you decide to be charitable, way off if not. Also, Biden gave too much credit to his own administration’s vaccine purchases. The Trump administration purchased enough vaccine doses to fully vaccinate at least a large percentage of the 190 million people who have received two shots at present.”

    “Let’s look first at the issue of credit. According to the Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan watchdog for Congress, “As of December 31, 2020, the government had at least 800 million vaccine doses under contract expected to be delivered by July 31, 2021, pending any issues with clinical trials, (emergency use authorization) issuance, or other factors.” That included 200 million doses each of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines that would prove by far the most popular with Americans. Also, the Trump-era contracts with Pfizer and Moderna gave the US the option to buy hundreds of millions more doses.”

    “Even with millions of doses being wasted after delivery, the contracts signed during the Trump presidency covered, at minimum, a large majority of the people who have been vaccinated so far.”

    “Biden is free to boast that his administration’s own actions have resulted in more people getting vaccinated than would have under a Trump administration whose pandemic response was widely criticized. Asked about Biden’s claim, a White House official noted Friday that the Biden administration bought additional doses in January and again in the summer, and that the administration used the Defense Production Act to allow Pfizer to accelerate its vaccine manufacturing by getting easier access to critical supplies it had struggled to obtain.”

    “All of that is fair enough. But Biden was still hyperbolic here in giving sole credit to his own purchases.”

    “Let’s now turn to Biden’s claim that “only 2 million people” had Covid shots when he was first elected.”

    “Obviously, only the tiny number of Americans who participated in clinical trials had received Covid-19 shots when Biden was elected in November, since public vaccinations began in December. But even if we look at the situation when Biden first took office on January 20, his claim that “there were only 2 million people who had Covid shots” is at least a bit
    incorrect.”

    “According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 18 million people in the US had received at least one shot at the time. But Biden did say “shots,” plural, and he was comparing this figure to the 190 million current figure for fully vaccinated Americans, so he was likely referring, imprecisely, to the number of people who were fully vaccinated early in his presidency.”

    “Even then, though, current CDC data says 3.4 million people were fully vaccinated on January 20. Biden might have been thinking of news reports from January 20, based on CDC data available at the time, that put the number at around 2 million, but the CDC numbers get updated over time as more information comes in and vaccinations are assigned to the date they actually occurred instead of the date they were reported.”

    “Vaccination Sites”:

    “Biden said that “there are over 800,000 sites right now that exist in America where you can go get a vaccine.”

    “Facts First: This is false; Biden added an extra zero. The White House official said Biden meant 80,000 vaccination sites, the number he has used on multiple previous occasions.”

    “Fox and Vaccinations”:

    Talking about right-wing television station Fox News, Biden asked, “Do you realize they mandate vaccinations?”

    “Facts First: This needs context. Fox Corp., which owns Fox News, has a Covid-19 vaccination policy stricter than the one Biden plans to impose on many US companies — and Fox News hosts, like CNN journalists and others, have described Biden’s policy as a “mandate.” However, it’s important to note that Fox Corp. does not actually require that employees get vaccinated. Rather, in a September memo, Fox Corp. announced that it would require unvaccinated employees to get tested daily.”

    “In other words, the Fox policy is most thoroughly described as a vaccination-or-test mandate. However, we can’t be too hard on Biden for describing it as a vaccination mandate given that his own planned vaccination-or-test mandate — which he says will require companies with 100 or more employees to ensure their workers are either vaccinated or get tested at least weekly — is also commonly described, on Fox and elsewhere, as a vaccination mandate.”

    “Biden’s Jobs Record”

    Biden said, “We’ve created more jobs in the first eight months of my administration than any president in American history.”

    “Facts First: This is true, but the circumstances of Biden’s first eight months are so different from the circumstances that greeted every other newly elected modern president that meaningful direct comparison is effectively impossible. Biden took office less than a year after the economy shed more than 22 million jobs in two months because of the pandemic. Even with the jobs rebound that began in May 2020, the US still has about 5 million fewer jobs than it did before the pandemic hit. In other words, Biden-era gains — an average of more than 600,000 jobs added per month from February through September — are still filling the giant pandemic hole.”

    “Biden is free, of course, to argue that he is doing a good job filling that hole. But his president-versus-president boasts should be viewed with contextual caution.”

    “Biden Keeps Telling Bizarre Amtrak Story That Was Already Debunked: Biden Continues Repeating Factually Impossible Claim”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-telling-bizarre-amtrak-story-debunked

    “President Biden repeatedly told a heartfelt story about his interactions with an Amtrak employee, even though the details of the story don’t seem to add up.”

    “Biden on Wednesday told the factually challenged Amtrak story for the fourth time in his presidency to date.”

    “About, uh, I guess it was seven years into my tenure as vice president, and I used to always like to take Amtrak home on Friday,” Biden said while speaking at in Scranton, Pennsylvania. “… And a lot of the folks on Amtrak became my family, not a joke.”

    “Angelo Negri was from – you remember Ange?” he said. “Ange came up to me one day when they just had announced that I had flown one million-some, x-number of miles on Air Force aircraft.”

    “And Ange comes up, and I’m getting in the car, and he goes, ‘Joey, baby! 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. Additionally, Biden’s office celebrated him hitting 1 million miles on Air Force Two in 2015 and Negri passed away the year prior.”

    “Biden’s telling of the story has varied.”

    “The president previously claimed it happened in the “fourth or fifth year” of his vice presidency, while most recently claiming it happened in the seventh year of his tenure.”

    “In another version of the story that Biden has previously told, he was going back to visit his sick mother when the interaction happened, even though his mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, died in 2010.”

    “The White House did not provide comment on the president’s recent claim.”

    “What is Joe Biden Doing With His Hands? US President Caught In Bizarre Pose During CNN Town Hall, Commits Goof Ups”

    https://www.opindia.com/2021/10/joe-biden-has-hands-in-weird-position-during-cnn-town-hall-anderson-cooper-mental-health-usa-president/

    Ever since Joe Biden became the Presdent of the United States, there is a growing concern among an overwhelming section of the American population about his deteriorating mental state. Those concerns were rekindled on Thursday when the US President committed a series of inexplicable goof ups and was caught in a strange pose during his CNN town hall.”

    “During the event, organised by the CNN, and hosted by Anderson Cooper, Biden spoke on a range of issues, spanning from China’s aggression, high inflation, abolishing the filibuster and gas prices. He also shared details on the stalled negotiations to pass his multi-trillion-dollar social safety net bill.”

    “However, what caught public attention was not his unremarkable comments on a host of issues but his demeanour that suggested there was something wrong with the US President. The gaffes committed by the US President sparked concerns among netizens about Biden’s mental capacity to lead the world’s most powerful nation.”

    “Here are some of the unusual moments that became the talk of the town on and off social media platforms.”

    “Imaginary Podium

    “In the town hall that was organised in July, Biden had dismissed price rise as a short term phenomenon. Last week, economists told the Wall Street Journal that high inflation will likely remain to 2022, and Cooper asked whether the President agreed with the assessment or not.”

    “In the 19 seconds that Anderson took to put out the question, Biden placed his forearms with his fists clenched in air such that they gave an impression that he was resting his hands on a podium.”

    https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1451357024718000169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

    “Several Twitter users pointed out that there was no podium there. Many others also mocked the president saying it looked like he was holding an “imaginary jet pack”.

    “Joe Biden Shows Zero With His Index Finger And Thumb Held Close To His Eye”

    “Moving ahead, when Biden was asked about the possibility of tax rises for the wealthy, the US President said “don’t pay a cent”. And while he responded asking corporations to not pay a dime, he made a circle with his index finger and thumb and held it up to his eye.”

    “Joe Biden Forgets The Name Of America’s Second Largest Port—Long Beach Port”

    “The United States President faced another embarrassing moment when Cooper had to interject to remind him of the name of America’s second largest port.”

    “Biden was speaking on the supply chain woes ahead of the holiday season when he stammered in his speech, unable to call to mind the name of Long Beach Port. Cooper had to intervene to remind the US president he was talking about the aforementioned port.”

    https://twitter.com/dannydeurbina/status/1451351069401960450?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

    “Forty percent of all products coming into the United States of America on the West Coast go through Los Angeles and … what am I doing here?” said Biden.”

    “Cooper chimed in: “Is it Long Beach?” To which Biden replied: “Long Beach. Thank you.”

    Biden Mistake Kweisi Mfume For The Mayor of Baltimore”

    “Another faux pas by the US President took place when he pointed to a man in the audience and alleged he was the Mayor of Baltimore”

    https://twitter.com/AZachParkinson/status/1451361584874463240?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

    “As it turned out, the man whom Biden was pointing out was not the mayor of the Baltimore. He was Congressman Kweisi Mfume, whose District includes Morgan State and was never Mayor of Baltimore.”

    “This is not the first time that Joe Biden has been a part of torrid public appearance. Since his election to the post of US President, there have been umpteen incidents that have led people into questioning if the President is suffering from dementia and losing his mental acuity.”

    “In fact, even during the run-up to the US presidential elections, political observers and commentators had raised concerns about Joe Biden’s cognitive decline and ominous signs of senility creeping in, which they claimed would seriously cloud his ability to function as the President of the most powerful country on Earth.”

    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.
