In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden praises supply chain team as bottlenecks stymie flow of goods

That’s right! The supply chain is fine, the border is closed, the exit from Afghanistan was pretty good, and the economy is doing great.

The Biden illusion machine keeps cranking it out.

According to Fox News:

President Biden touted the efforts of his supply chain disruption team on Wednesday even as White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted that the administration cannot guarantee the on-time arrival of Christmas presents amid global supply chain delays and gridlocked U.S. ports.

“I want to thank my Supply Chain Disruption Task Force, which we set up in June, led by Secretaries [Pete] Buttigieg, [Gina] Raimondo, and [Tom] Vilsack, and by my Director of National Economic Council Bryan Deese. I want to thank them for their leadership,” the president said.

He singled out John Porcari, whom the administration tapped as port envoy in August.

“I especially want to thank Joe Porcari, and I think Joe’s done one heck of a job, my special envoy specifically on ports, who’s been working this issue with all the stakeholders for the past several weeks,” the president added.

But ports are clogged and Santa may be coming late with his presents, suggesting the praise could be premature. George W. Bush once got called out for telling FEMA Director Michael Brown, amid the unaddressed devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, “Brownie, you’re doing a heckuva job.”

  1. “The Biden illusion machine keeps cranking it out.” Perfect wording, Rebekah. I think it’s the perception they want to create, a perception that is laughable, infantile, false and dangerous. Biden clearly identified this strategy when he talked by phone to the Afghan president shortly before he fled the country. As the Taliban were quickly taking over the country, biden told the Afghan president to have a press conference and say everything is fine and that it’s the “perception” that he needs to create that everything was under control. Biden and his lackeys, they are something else.

    1. More like disillusionment. To have Mayor Pete in charge of transportation was nothing more than payback for him dropping out of the election process. I’ve seen his incompetence nightly on local news. South Bend never got better, only worse. He could never figure out how to slow down crime, he could only blame the police. Typical asshat. This back log won’t get better because of anything little Pete will do.

  2. Mayor Pete ran South Bend’s muni bus company. It has 60 buses. To put it in perspective, my local school district has more buses. Just another case of inappropriate appointment to a lofty position with little or no experience. What could go wrong?

    Also, this task force has been around since June, roughly 4-5 months ago. What steps have they taken up until now, except to analyze and look at issues? Answer, nothing. Why? Because there was no incentive to fix the issue, none. These are policy wonks, not business people. DJT would have been AT the port, shaking his fist, demanding immediate action, and it would have been months ago.
    Instead, we have President Zoom, telling us the ports will now be open 24/7. Hey JB, you can open the port, but without business incentives to achieve proper work flow and employment, your words are hollow…. As the usually are.

    We should have seen this task force in action, meeting with labor, port authority, transportation. My guess is this was all blather until the media picked up on this. NOW they demand action. Maybe we can ship all the border migrants direct to the ports and use them for labor… thats not a serious comment.


  3. That supply chain disruption team did a bang up job, didn’t they? They disrupted the bejesus out of the supply chain…and they’re not done yet!
