With 'Rick' reporting that warnings were being broadcast over the intercom system about people loitering both inside and outside of the store and "some guy with a clipboard had people lined up like cattle in a squeeze chute, barking orders at them (he wasn't pleasant) and maintaining social distancing", 'Rick' compared that experience at his local WalMart with prior experiences of his at the Czechoslovak-East German border as well as at the East German-Polish border, hinting that if America keeps going in this direction, something very nasty lays ahead.
The graphic above comes to us from the BlueStones Supply Chain in the UK and can be seen larger here. Showing us just how quickly things would come grinding to a total halt should the truckers stop trucking, the lifeblood of our nation potentially put in harms way due to the spread of covid-19 and the very nature of their work, as one Veteran truck driving recently said, "Everything just changed so drastically" while describing the total chaos that coronavirus has brought to the trucking industry.
Yet as he pointed out as we also hear in the 1st video at the bottom of this story, while there was a huge surge in demand for food and supplies at the beginning of this outbreak in America, the trucking business has since fallen off the cliff as Forbes recently reported, one trucking company recently laid off 1/5 of their employees and we've heard from ANP readers of other truckers also losing their jobs. From this Yahoo Finance story.:
As people across the U.S. shelter in place to contain the novel coronavirus, the nation’s truck drivers continue to traverse the country, transporting goods — but the landscape they’re experiencing is radically different post-virus.
“Everything just changed so drastically where we're showing up to facilities and they're checking our temperature,” truck driver Josh Rickards told Yahoo Finance’s “On The Move” this week. Rickards, who’s been driving a big rig for 15 years, said he’s never seen anything like what he’s witnessed during the coronavirus pandemic.
He owns a fleet of three trucks and described how panic buying of items like toilet paper looked like from his perspective, as customers wiped out supermarket shelves “seemingly overnight.” “I've seen on the news people rushing to buy toilet paper. And in the area that I was in at the time, as I was watching that, I was watching load counts spike, and it was just, overnight, thousands and thousands and thousands of loads,” he said.
“And the next morning my phone was getting phone calls off the hook from brokers. Can you cover this load? Can you cover this load? Can you cover this load? And it was just out of nowhere. It was like chaos on our side of the fence.”
But much like the rest of the country, all of that has now grinded to a halt.
During the initial phase of the pandemic, Rickards said he was working non-stop as businesses fought to keep the supply chain wheels spinning. But that’s all changed. As of last Friday, Rickards said, his business has “fallen off a cliff” much like the rest of the country.
“As this started to unfold and job losses were happening and people were becoming unemployed, even some friends and family of my own have been calling me and, you know, asking, hey, do you have any work?”
But even a tight labor market can’t convince the drivers who lease under his authority to take a job that requires them to travel to New York City — the epicenter of the virus in the U.S.
“I mean, no one really wants to go there. Everyone's afraid of going there and being in a position where they actually contract the virus themselves.”
And with 'the masses' absolutely needing food to just survive and any kind of a long-term supply chain collapse leading to absolute chaos and turmoil within America and across the world, should things continue to break down rather than being 'remedied', something akin to a 'Mad Max world' may await America in the days ahead with this covid-19 accomplishing all of the globalists sinister objectives and on a 'fast-track'.
As the United States faces down the dual crises of the Covid-19 pandemic and a widespread shortage of medical supplies and equipment, Dr. Janis Orlowski is working 13-15 hours a day trying to mitigate the damage.
As the chief health care officer of the Association of American Medical Colleges, she talks with senior government officials daily. She listens to the concerns of some of the biggest hospitals in the country — the shortages of masks and ventilators and ICU beds and doctors and nurses. And she’s sober-minded about the weeks and months ahead.
“I believe that we're going to return to a semi-normal life at the end of May — Memorial Day,” Dr. Orlowski said in an interview for a special coronavirus-focused episode of POLITICO’s Women Rule podcast.
“But the other thing that I would say is that we have to prepare ourselves to go through a similar exercise in the fall, in the late fall. If you take a look at the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic, and if you take a look at how coronavirus is acting, this is not just the winter and spring of 2020. Probably late November, by December, we are going to go through this again."
In the 1st video below we hear from one trucker who warns that the trucking industry is now falling off the cliff due to coronavirus lockdowns while the 2nd video below from the Texas Media Foundry Transportation Video Division is called "Always Rollin': Truckers & The Supply Chain". In the 3rd video below, Tucker Carlson talks with us about the World Health Organization's 'snatch and grab' plans for children while in the 4th and final video below, Constitutional lawyer Robert Barnes joins Infowars to warn that 'medical martial law' is just as dangerous as 'traditional martial law'. And with the very real potential of children being kidnapped out of American's homes, stolen away from their parents by people like Bill Gates who think they know better than the rest of us, Barnes warns that America, the US Constitution and freedom are in grave danger.
