Even the everyday complacent American is now noticing the price increases at their grocery store and that certain foods are often unavailable for purchase. This will likely not be close to being resolved in the coming months but will worsen.
If you have been waiting for some reason to prepare, now is the best time to start.
PREPPING FOR THE UPCOMING GOVERNMENT-INDUCED FOOD SHORTAGES
The mainstream media keeps trying to blame this on a “virus,” but last I checked, the virus didn’t bark orders to impoverish yourself and lock yourself in your home with no way to generate an income. It was the world’s governments and those willing to blindly obey without question who helped destroy the supply chain and the economy. That is only one of the many reasons I continue to call government what it truly is: slavery.
It Wasn’t The “Virus” That Crashed The Economy, It Was The People Who Obeyed The Government
“It is unwinding. In some cases, we’re seeing similar effects from the first few months of the pandemic. Some of it is in reverse,” said Dan Kowalski, vice president of CoBank’s Knowledge Exchange Division. CoBank provides loans and other financial services to the United States. rural community. Early in the pandemic, some shoppers heading to the grocery store to stockpile food and other items were greeted with empty shelves. According to a report by Market Watch, businesses worked feverishly to shift distribution away from restaurants, cafeterias, and other away-from-home dining venues that were now off-limits during lockdowns.
“There’s a part of the economy that’s been relatively quiet for the last year that’s reopening,” said Chedly Louis, vice president, and senior credit officer at Moody’s. “The part of the economy that was quiet is revving up at a faster pace than the manufacturer thought at the beginning of the year. That’s the rebalancing that’s happening in the supply chain.”
Even pet items seem to be selling out and the prices are jumping. Sumit Singh, the chief executive of pet-care retailer Chewy Inc. said on the late Thursday earnings call that a high level of out-of-stock items were a headwind during the most recent quarter. “This is clearly a supply-driven situation, which we expect to abate in the second half of this year as additional production capacity comes online,” he said, according to a FactSet transcript. “Until then, we will keep actively managing our inventory and using our recommendation engines to help customers find attractive alternatives.”
Other retailers say there’s a labor shortage and demand is increasing. The National Retail Federation said in a Monday announcement that April was the busiest on record at the nation’s retail container ports, with May possibly setting a record.
“There’s no shortage of demand from consumers, but there continues to be shortages of labor, equipment and shipping capacity to meet that demand,” said Jonathan Gold, vice president for supply chain and customs policy at the organization. “Supply chain disruptions, port congestion, and rising shipping costs could continue to be challenges through the end of the year.”
Stay alert and remain prepared. With the supply chain already hampered, it wouldn’t take much for the entire thing to come crashing down as people panic. Remember when they panicked over the flu and bought out all the toilet paper? That should have been a lesson to everyone to make sure you have at least a whole package as a spare. Get what you need now as things look like they could get tight this summer and into fall. The prices are going one way and if you are not prepared when they jump even higher, you may not be able to get prepared.
How to Perform a Preparedness Audit (And Why You Need To Do This Every Year)
Please don’t submit to fear. Instead, be ready so you don’t have to be afraid. Rise above the fear and make the best decisions you can right now and know you are prepared.
Americans that love America need to be prepared for war.
Not against any foreign adversary but against our own corrupt evil government.
A revolution is in our future – Why – because there is no option!
I don’t think a lot of Americans are going to tolerate the destruction of our economy or rights that are planned by the elite.
This is what needs to be prepared for – food is one thing to stock
but I may suggest that ammo is most important because if you can not protect you, your family and what you have, then you really have nothing
Go to war and lose, you have no chance of winning and you will just be branded as a terrorist that will result in the acceleration of government assuming total dictatorial powers to keep the people safe (the way mass shooting incidents always inspire more gun control).
A political solution is what is needed if we are to defeat the Leftists, one based on both the Constitution as it was intended and a revival of the Christian standards our nation was formed around.
Chances of our nation surviving as the nation it was in the past are very low, maybe less than 1 in 10 at best, so quit griping on the keyboard about things you won’t do anyway and start preparing to wait out the storm as well as you can in your own circumstances or be swept away by it if you don’t.
Hey metrosexual snowflake,
Our Political system is corrupt and controlled by the elite so changes are non existent. Our forefathers and the constitution knew that a violet revolt may be necessary ie our 2nd amendment.
You and your ilk as worst than the liberal dopes that infest our Republic.
Get informed and out of your basement
Politics ain’t working no more. Just look at the elections. There is no representation any more. The only people “they” represent are themselves. Nothing for us but more theft and inflation….. Better to die standing up, than on our knees……If it comes to civil war just don’t let them take you alive…..There are many things worse than death and if we let them take us, after civil war starts, (if it does), we will experience them……..Take care jakartaman…….
LUMBER IS STACKED TO THE RAFTERS AT LOWES. THERE IS NO LUMBER SHORTAGES, JUST HIGH PRICE FIXING TO RAPE BUILDERS. MORE LAWSUITS NEED TO BE FILED.
THE LUMBER FUTURES GOT CRUSHED 40% A MONTH AGO YET PRICES ARE STILL HIGH.
THE SAWMILLS AND MIDDLEMEN ARE RAPING AMERICA.
A political solution, with the democratic communists in control of pretty much everything. It will be USSA
Unfortunately what the doctor ordered (generations ago) was an extraordinarily quick, very violent take down and thorough cleansing of the “lower than whaleshit” interests that seem to have this cat by the tail. There is no political solution to a (systemic) crime/corruption problem. We the righteous citizenry need to throw off the shackles of apathy, open the eyes and ears and noses and breathe deeply of the malodorous ROT in our midst, and understand that this rank pustule needs lanced. We are at the blood poisoning/gangrene stage where AMPUTATION of this rotten useless appendage (banksters/career politicians and bureaucrats/business elites and the warmongers) is necessary. Not optional. Voting is the path forward to resolving our crime/corruption issues?? Get the fugk off this planet. Joe Biden, not in control of anything – not even his own bowels, and doesn’t know what planet he’s on. Kamalatov Cock -n- tail whom is a one answer wonder – she pops her mouth open as wide as a hippopotamus while cackling and guffawing uncontrollably barking “what”? “What”? What a disgrace. The so called leaders of the so called free world. We need some strong citizen leaders and need them yesterday. We need leaders that will call out these murderous, treacherous, lecherous scumbags polluting our place and act decisively to eliminate the SOB’s and DOB’s. We also need muscle to apply the proper pressure.
Remember, our first revolution was started by a tiny tiny minority. This can and should be done. our forefathers are rolling in their graves. They would tell us that they gave us what we need to fix it – The constitution (2nd amendment)
“You have a Republic if you can keep it”
Wake up citizens before you are made slaves permanently.
Inflation is never Transitionary, look at the size of the food packages! Higher price and you get half as much as you did from five years ago. I paid 182.00 for a new car battery yesterday. That’s from the auto store and with the core charge credit. I payed 120.00 three years ago for same battery.
Yes mass starvation is the tool of choice, plausible deniability. Quite in fact, if you watch the chaos and mayhem erupt each year on black Friday – people acting like the heathens they are over shiny plastic trinkets (made in China), then you cannot even fathom the eruption of hysterical psychopathy that will ensue over the last slice of wonder bread. Glorious. Just glorious – and it’s just around the bend. Make no mistake.
We have 8 months..
.. get a generator or get out 1st (theyll use the “Delta variant”, or what passes for science talk to the nearly illiterate for “Change-change”, to require shots for entry at FEMA-mart, & id like to personally thank this site for helping bring the latter to my inspiration)
Stock up, grow your own. California is draining reservoir waters into the ocean, for what purpose? The west is in the worst drought in hundreds of years and spraying of the atmosphere will depress crops too. Planned? Probably.
Yep Jim, they are draining and dumping fresh water into the ocean to create water shortages for crops. And they remaining water and lad is sprayed with pesticides. They are trying to starve us, dehydrate us, and kill us with cancer causing pesticides like Glyphosate.
Even the Country of Mexico Banned Glyphosate.
It took Venezuela 20 years to completely fall into a hell-hole of despair. Years of red flags that were ignored and then when they reached their tipping point and fell down into complete chaos, people STILL say it happened overnight. It didn’t. I can’t imagine that what we are dealing with now is no different than what they dealt with. Shortages of one kind or another every week or month, rolling shortages of energy, water shortages, stressed supply chains.
Anyone who is paying attention should be stocking all the necessary items to withstand what’s coming our way. Every visit to the store costs me more. Gas in Texas, although affordable, is twice what it cost last year. Appliances are on 6-month backorder. Building materials are insane. I saw where we were headed last year. I knew I was going to need new tires for my SUV, so I bought them late last year. I knew I needed another freezer, so I bought one late last year. I knew a generator was going to be needed, so I bought a tri-fuel generator late last year.
Today, our energy company is saying conserve power as they have plants down and we might have rolling brown-outs. In all the years I’ve lived here, we have never had brown-outs. they failed us during the major storm we had earlier in the year with all the green energy wind turbines crap and now it’s like they didn’t know it would get hot in Texas! We haven’t even hit the hot months here. BUT this is how all this crap works. We jump out of one fire into the next. These are our red flags-!! And i don’t think it will take 20 years to bring us to our knees. This is the beginning of the re-set. The elite have made a fortune the past year while the average American suffered. Buy anything you need now, it is just going to cost you more down the road. Prepare the best you can on all fronts. This Country will look very different next year.
Wood chuck, possum, owl, robin and frog legs are now all on the menu!
No chicken of the tree?
I hope people have been growing a garden. Getting free food from the food pantries, cooking kitchens and sharing foods. No one has to be hungry. Don’t let the psychopaths scare you. Learn more ways to be self sufficient. It can be done.
In order to get the necessary resources, you have to show some
sort of ROI.
