RAILWAY STRIKE: 40% Of Goods In USA To Come To Screeching Halt!


13,178 views

Think it’s bad now?

Think inflation is bad now?

Think prices are high now?

It’s about to get a lot worse.

Have you heard of the coming Railway strike?

It starts on Friday if not averted by Congress and the President….and does anyone have any confidence in those two bumbling institutions?

Right.

Me either.

In fact, many believe they are intentionally CAUSING the destruction of America, and since nothing else has yet worked to fully slow down America and bring it to its knees, it looks like they need to try yet another card: the Railway Strike.

But this one is serious.

Over 40% of all American goods travel by rail.

Food, water, energy.

You know, the basics to stay alive and safe.

And it all stops on Friday.

You think inflation is bad now?

You ain’t seen nothing yet, says 24/7 Wall St:

A strike by railway workers against the railroads that transport food, manufacturing components, coal, and even hazardous waste may bring traffic to a halt as early as next week. A total of 90,000 workers could walk off the job. The American Association of Railroads forecast the strike could cost the economy $2 billion a day.

One of the reasons economists have been optimistic about an improvement in the rising cost of living is more abundant access to energy. Because coal travels by rail, the optimism would be wiped out by a strike.

This is the harvest period for most of America’s farmers. They may find they cannot get their crops to markets.

The component shortage that has damaged the car industry may be exacerbated by a drop in needed parts that are delivered by rail. Car prices, a primary cause of the recent inflation, began to cool. That period may be over just as it began.

The most effective battle against inflation is probably one being fought by the Fed. As it raises rates, at levels which have not been in place for well over a decade, it was assumed price increases would cool, and that unemployment would tick up. A railway strike may wipe out whatever progress the central bank has made, but unemployment could rise nevertheless as businesses buckle because they do not have access to the goods they sell.

The railway strike may only be an annoyance if there is a settlement after a few days. It appears, however, that management and labor are far apart. Ironically, inflation is among the reasons workers want higher compensation.

Thank God we have Congress ready to step in!

[sarcasm alert]

From Axios:

Why it matters: A shutdown of the nation’s rail system threatens to re-tangle supply chains in the U.S. and could cost up to $2 billion a day, according to an industry estimate.

  • Amtrak announced Monday that it will be halting trains on three long-distance routes starting Tuesday, per the Washington Post.

What they’re saying: “There is a role for Congress if in fact they fail to reach an agreement,” Hoyer said on Bloomberg’s “Balance of Power” show. “We can pass legislation if needed.”

  • “A shutdown of our freight rail system is an unacceptable outcome for our economy and the American people,” a White House official said in a statement to Axios.
  • “The Administration has been actively engaged, pushing for a resolution. All parties need to stay at the table, resolve outstanding issues and come to an agreement.”

Newsmax had more details:

On Monday, Hoyer told Bloomberg Television that Congress would act to avert the national railway strike. However, the congressional clock would already be ticking on the first phase of railway strike, which reportedly involves Amtrak halting three long-distance-route trains, beginning Tuesday.

“There is a role for Congress if in fact they fail to reach an agreement,” Hoyer said on Bloomberg’s “Balance of Power” show. “We can pass legislation, if needed.”

With the midterm elections less than two months away (Nov. 8), the Democrat-controlled House and Senate chambers likely cannot afford the negative publicity that comes with a nationwide railway strike.

The White House has already been inundated with logistical and inflationary concerns over the last 18 months — including pricing problems with American consumer staples, such as gasoline, diapers, baby formula, eggs, milk, and proteins at the grocery store.

As such, the Biden administration has already pledged its support in avoiding the national railway strike, which, according to industry estimates, could be a $2 billion per day drain on the U.S. economy.

“A shutdown of our freight rail system is an unacceptable outcome for our economy and the American people,” a White House official informed Axios.”The Administration has been actively engaged, pushing for a resolution. All parties need to stay at the table, resolve outstanding issues and come to an agreement.”

And from the Washington Examiner, Amtrak is also shutting down:

Three Amtrak routes went off-track Tuesday when the train company canceled the long-distance routes in anticipation of a railway strike later this week.

The three canceled routes head westward, including the Southwest Chief route from Chicago to Los Angeles, the Empire Builder route from Chicago to Seattle, and the California Zephyr route from Chicago to San Francisco. A portion of a fourth route that saw cancellations heads eastward from Los Angeles to San Antonio in a portion of the Texas Eagle route.

“While we are hopeful that parties will reach a resolution, Amtrak has now begun phased adjustments to our service in preparation for a possible freight rail service interruption later this week,” Amtrak said in a statement Monday.

From The Hill:

President Biden and his Cabinet have been directly involved in trying to broker an agreement between rail companies and worker unions, seeking to avert a strike that could severely affect commuter rail services and consumer prices.

Administration officials confirmed that Biden and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh have reached out to both sides of the dispute, hoping to broker an agreement and avoid a shutdown.

A White House official said Biden was involved Monday in outreach to unions and freight rail companies and was updated again Tuesday on the situation.

A Department of Labor spokesperson said Walsh reached out Monday night “to push the parties to reach a resolution that averts any shutdown of our rail system.”

New Dream From Timothy Dixon: Violence/Food Shortages

Brand new dream just posted from Timothy Dixon.

This is a short one and worth the quick watch.

Timothy Dixon shares an insight on something we’ve been reporting on a lot recently: coming food shortages.

Actually, it’s not just coming, it’s already here.

But it’s about to get worse.

The good news is Timothy has some great hope at the end of this video.

Please watch and then please make sure you’re prepared.

As he says in this video, it never hurts to be prepared.  Literally, no downside.

And you can prepare slowly and gradually.

Buying one box of noodles at the store?

Consider buying two and putting one in your pantry.

Please watch:

As I said, we’ve been reporting on this for a while now.

In fact, here’s a recent alert we had posted!

Very important…

👇

Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis has issued this warning about high diesel prices:

“Diesel prices are so high that some crops aren’t even worth harvesting.”

Commentator Mike Cernovich says:

“I’ve never said anything like this before: Food shortages will hit the US next year.”

Another analyst says food shortages will start earlier — in September.

Watch:

From the video:

“As of June, here is the current change in production of key crops this year compared to last year. So take a look at these charts the first one is rice production is down 0.33 percent year over year. Wheat is down 0.72 percent. Barley is down 1.55 percent. Corn is down 2.49 percent. Oats, they’re down 10.8 percent. Soybeans they’re down 12.3 percent.

Now listen some of these statistics they don’t sound too bad. So for example the wheat production that’s down less than one percent right? However you have to keep in mind that with countries banning the export of many crops and the Russia-Ukraine war, supply chain problems and logistics — they’ve gone from bad to worse.

Therefore at this very moment the world needs production to be up substantially to make up for all these challenges. And that is not the case. Production has not been increasing production has been falling so this is not good.”

He also highlights problems with fertilizer for farmers.

Here’s the fertilizer situation in a nutshell:

The best way to be prepared for food shortages is:

— Have a full pantry

— Plant your own garden

— Get to know local farmers

Another way, if you can afford it, is to stock up on long-lasting ’emergency food.’

‘Emergency food’ means food kits packed with 2,000-plus calories a day that last a long time — some for as long as 30 years.

If you want to explore the world of emergency food, millions of American families have already got theirs from MyPatriotSupply.com (ordering through this link and the links below benefits We Love Trump).

Their emergency food is so popular, MyPatriotSupply is now the largest preparedness company in America.

You can put emergency food kits in a storage area in your house — and worry less about what your family will eat if food shortages ever hit us at home.

For a limited time, there are some special deals at MyPatriotSupply.com — click here to see them.

The best time to prepare for food shortages is today.

After food shortages hit, it’s too late.
