JoEconomy: Epic Cargo Backlog Hits Northern California

The San Francisco Chronicle has now noticed just how bad the global supply chain has become, and how bad it is hitting the Bay area

The supply chain crisis has hit the Bay Area – partly because of epic cargo backlogs in Southern California

Where's Joe BidenMac Harman, CEO of Redwood City’s Balsam Hill, is paying 270% more to import artificial Christmas trees and decorations from overseas factories. “Ocean freight rates have gone up like crazy,” he said.

Steve Snodgrass, chief financial officer of Graniterock, a major Watsonville construction materials supplier, paid $2.5 million for spring delivery of 10 concrete mixer trucks. He’s still waiting.

Their travails illustrate how clogged the global supply chain has become. Pandemic disruptions and labor shortages are exacerbating issues with the complex way products are sourced from components made all over the world. A single choke point — such as carmakers’ current struggles to get key computer chips — can create a significant bottleneck for an entire industry.

“These are problems that have always been there but the pandemic exposed a lot of them,” said Trent Willis, president of ILWU Local 10, the union for Oakland longshore workers.

Can you guess what word is missing from the entire story? It’s “Biden”. Now, Surrender Joe is not necessarily to blame for this, but, you know that if Trump was president the media would be noticing the supply chain issues quite a bit more and be Blaming him. Certainly, Biden’s anti-business policies do not help, but, for the most part, it’s not his fault. He’s just doing absolutely nothing to alleviate the issue. Even all you Trump haters have to admit that Trump would be working hard to fix the problem. Perhaps involving Mean Tweets, but, Joe and his administration are MIA

Downstream, all those holdups will translate for consumers into higher prices and longer waits. It won’t mean a return to the early pandemic days when store shelves were stripped bare of essentials. You’ll still be able to buy a laptop, exercise bike or jeans — if you’re flexible about which brand. If you have your heart set on a specific model, however, you may have months-long delays. And there may be spot shortages of some goods, ranging from cars to appliances to home decor.

It’s not just one factor hindering the production and movement of goods.

“Every part of the supply chain has reached capacity,” said Jim McKenna, CEO of the Pacific Maritime Association, which represents the ocean carriers and terminal operators who operate at the 29 West Coast ports. “It’s a global issue, and there are no easy ways to fix it. The volume is unrelenting and it’s forecasted to continue through the first part of 2023. This is far from over.”

Joe doesn’t care how this is hurting the Little People. He’s focused on his hardcore, big government agenda. And taking every weekend off.

    Lawyers running politics, African Studies majors running the bureaucracy, autocrats running medicine. And they’re all tyrants. What could go wrong?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The experts attribute part of the supply chain disruption to problems with physical infrastructure, labor shortages and also Trump tariffs. William Teach admits that it’s not President Biden’s fault, that there’s little that Biden can do, but does blame Biden for not caring about the “little people”. Yet William Teach does not criticize the GOP obstructionism blocking the raising of the debt limit and the bill addressing physical and human infrastructure.

    What would William Teach have President Biden do? Conscript Americans to work the docks and drive the trucks? Order the National Guard in? Force the military to build more dock facilities?

    William Teach and the GOPhers want to destroy America to cure America.

      Rimjob, dipshit that he is, again points out Joey’s weakness…

      He can’t fix anything.
      He just blames others.

      Thanks for being you.

      “The experts attribute part of the supply chain disruption to problems with physical infrastructure, labor shortages and also Trump tariffs. ”

      Once again the leftist idiot calls upon “experts” who if they were we wouldn’t be in this fix. And of course, nothing can go wrong because of the nazi in the WH without invoking the Great Satan Trump.

      “Yet William Teach does not criticize the GOP obstructionism blocking the raising of the debt limit and the bill addressing physical and human infrastructure.”

      Sure, demofascists are ruining every city and state they control so they want to piss away more money but it’s the GOP’s fault. And BTW, there is no such thing as “human infrastructure” . Dehumanizing the working man to get money to piss away ain’t cool. People are humans, not bridges and roads, etc.

      ” What would William Teach have President Biden do?”

      Resign, the man is a fuking fool. But other than that obvious solution junta joe the criminal could suggest doing something that does not require spending us into oblivion nor Dictating how Americans must work. All you demofascists think of is force and money.

      He could start by calling off all the “vaccine” mandates which are still killing our economy. Maybe we should do what we do for every other virus that comes around: get the non-vaccine medicine shots if we choose to, use any and all medicines available if we choose to and let the natural immunity take its course.

      If people were able to take the meds I was since the beginning maybe we would be in better shape but your hatred of Trump required that nothing be done because as the other Blind Mouse recently quipped ” he wanted people to drink bleach and eat horse tranquilizers”.

      Fuk joe biden!

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        As stated a year ago, the pandemic was killing the economy. Snake-oil “cures” do not help. Can you explain why tRump’s doctors treated him with the Regeneron anti-Covid antibody cocktail, Remdesivir, oxygen and dexamethasone instead of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin and bleach?

        Vaccines are the path forward. Merck has reported positive results with an orally available anti-viral drug candidate, molnupiravir.

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          Yes, I can explain it.

          It was apparent that the Chinese virus did not require the extreme methods engineered by the Dem governors and mayors, that is what killed the economy.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            dookie: Yes, I can explain it.

            So Trump’s doctors administered second-class treatments to him because of Democratic governors and mayors?

            Does that make sense to you? You need to revise your comment and try again.

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            You can’t read. There are two paragraphs. That means two subjects. Now, you really don’t have a clue about clinical medicine and the use of drugs.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Dookie,

            We asked: Can you explain why tRump’s doctors treated him with the Regeneron anti-Covid antibody cocktail

            Dookie typed: Yes, I can explain. It was apparent that the Chinese virus did not require the extreme methods…

            You should learn to write.

          • david7134 says:

            Jeff,
            Yes I can explain the use of the medications. There answered you.

            Now another paragraph. You are lying about what I typed.

            Now another paragraph, learn to read. I always thought pharmacist had some minor intelligence, but you lower the bar.

        • Kye says:

          I don’t know what Trump’s doctors treated him with and neither do you. You are speculating. I do know that what you reactively call “snake-oil cures” have proven effective in other countries. I also know that during a pandemic we should use EVERY AVAILABLE TREATMENT. But if you don’t agree then if yo become ill don’t take it! It’s your body so it’s your choice. (Unless you disagree with Fauxci).

          Both my sister and I have used HCQ, Ivermectin, a various amount of vitamins and we both were cured of the demofascist flu. I was diagnosed on Oct 1 with Wuhan flu and by yesterday my fever broke. It is now 97.5. So I don’t know what to tell you. It wouldn’t matter anyway since the hated Trump monster suggested these meds so as far as you’re concerned you’d rather die.

          I do know a 45 YO friend of ours was vaxxed on Friday and paralyzed on her left side by Saturday. And she WAS a biden supporter now she hopes he dies.

          Fuk joe biden!

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Are you saying that Trump’s doctors lied about his treatments? I guess it’s possible since conservatives lie repeatedly.

            Maybe they actually threaded a bronchoscope into his lungs and lit them up with ultraviolet light.

            But it seems peculiar that the best doctors in America didn’t treat the most powerful person on Earth with the drug that Trump claimed was a cure, i.e., hydroxychloroquine.

    • david7134 says:

      Experts what experts?

      As to tariffs, Trump is not president, even though he won the election, so those are Biden tariffs.

  3. Down on the corner says:

    2021 has surpassed 2020 to become the deadlier year for COVID-19 cases in the United States despite that vaccines have been readily available to most Americans for months.

    What. Shit? Seriously. Sos its Biden’s fault that America is dying from this here virus. I mean Trump gives u a vaccine and you still kill more people than Trump did.

    Biden is a mass murderer that is now purposely destroying the economy on purpose. We need to fight the crazed commies that are in the White House while Biden takes naps and wonders what day it is. I don’t blame Biden, this was the greatest coup in the history of Coups. Now those same progressives are sicking the FBI after grandma at the local school board election for exercising their freedom of speech.

    Sorry the left thinks angry speech is White nationalists rising up to become domestic terrorists but then they are the ones hidin in the basement afraid of tha cornyvirus.

    Biden don’t know what he’s doin. But thos running him does. He be a puppet that people have always talked about for years. His office is destroying the USA and he dont knows it
