We’ve been reporting on the growing supply chain crisis for weeks now, but the situation is about to get much more serious and worse, there isn’t anything at this point anyone can do to stop the shortages and economic calamities that are coming.
The first thing to understand is how we got to this point: The decisions to shut down the global economy on account of the COVID-19 pandemic were not simply arbitrary decisions made in ‘the best health interests of all citizens.’ No, they were part of a grand scheme to collapse the world’s economy, and especially those in the United States and throughout the West because those nations are the most powerful and represented the greatest roadblocks to the global reorder the ruling elites have wanted for years.
When the economies of the world closed down due to COVID, so too did the global economic order: In short, the globe’s supply chains, the bulk of which originate in Asia and, specifically, China (there was a reason why Donald Trump as president was working overtime to bring China down several economic notches while moving U.S. production out of the country — and we’re about to see why).
The effects of shutting down global supply chains cannot be reversed on a dime and in fact, it may take years to fix what the elites broke, according to a growing body of experts. Not only are shelves going to become increasingly bare, but bare necessities like food are also going to get scarce, as we’re starting to see in parts of the U.S. already and in Great Britain — in large part due to the COVID closures and ignorant left-wing ‘climate’ policies, as The Sun reports:
UK supermarkets are two weeks away from running out of British meat, industry experts have warned.
Soaring energy prices have led to a drop off in CO2 supplies, impacting the meat industry’s ability to slaughter animals humanely.
Nick Allen, chief executive of the British Meat Processors Association, said manufacturers have between five and 15 days’ CO2 supply left.
Fertiliser plants have closed down due to the rising cost of energy — this has a knock on effect on the meat industry which uses the waste CO2 produced by the factories.
Chicken and pork producers are really going to be impacted the most by this lack of CO2.
“Then they will have to stop. That means animals will have to stay on farms. That will cause farmers huge animal welfare problems and British pork and poultry will stay off the shelves,” Allen said.
Hungry people tend to riot a lot more easily and violently.
The U.S. isn’t going to be spared this unrest, either.
RealClearDefense reports that “soon it will lead to layoffs, higher prices and fewer options at the grocery store. In time, it could threaten our nation’s security.”
The report went on to note that on a recent trip to Asia, Vice President Kamala Harris got a good look at the supply chain disruption from its origins in Asia, commenting afterward that yeah, it’s a big deal in that Christmas gifts might be delayed this year.
Except the problem is much more substantial than that.
“Our national security apparatus maintains lean inventories and relies on just-in-time manufacturing and delivery—often from overseas suppliers— to replenish their stocks. Shipping delays can create serious vulnerabilities,” RealClearDefense reported.
As Natural News has reported, the Asian shipping backlog has already reached American shores. And it’s set to become worse.
“While no one looks forward to depleted store shelves during the Christmas shopping season, the bigger concern for Americans should be higher fuel bills, lack of fruit in the winter, and whether our military can keep us safe while they wait for parts,” RealClearDefense warned.
Stock up now; don’t wait.
