Supply Chain Backlog to Last Until Summer of Next Year, Despite 24/7 Operating Hours: Officials

Brethren – keep your eyes on Lord Jesus, but know what is coming. He will be with us through all of this.

Despite President Biden’s announcement Wednesday that the severely backlogged Port of Los Angeles would expand into 24/7 operating hours—similar to the Port of Long Beach—port officials are saying the backlog will continue until the summer of 2022.

Noel Hacegaba, deputy executive director of the Port of Long Beach, said expanding the ports’ operating hours will not impact the supply chain disruptions given the continued shortage of truck drivers, chassis equipment, and warehouse operations and space.

“We think it’ll be summer of 2022 before we clear all 60 ships,” Hacegaba told The Epoch Times Oct. 14. “Of course, if we take some measures now, and everyone in the supply chain starts expanding their hours of operation … we’re going to get there sooner.”

Hacegaba showed optimism that expanding port hours of operation will encourage the rest of the supply chain to step up their efforts.

“If we had the warehouse capacity, if we had enough truck drivers, enough trucks, enough chassis, to pull those containers, we wouldn’t have the 60 ships which are effectively serving as warehouses on the water. I mean, that’s what they’re doing. They’re storing these containers,” Hacegaba said.

Other experts are more pessimistic about the about the impact of Biden’s announcement, saying it will require a lot more than just the ports to solve the backlog.

“I think the Biden Administration looked at the low-hanging fruit [and finally took action],” said Sal Mercogliano, a professor of maritime industry policy at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy out of New York. “The move is better late than never … [but] should have been addressed sooner than this.”

Mercogliano said addressing one end of the supply chain does not solve the problem.

“Everything must be done simultaneously,” including not only addressing the current shortage of truck drivers, but increasing operations of receiving retailers as well, he said.

In a virtual briefing Oct. 14, Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said he was happy to be working with the Biden Administration on addressing the backlog, but was unsure about when 24/7 operations would commence and if all seven terminals at the port would follow suit.

“The anticipation is that everybody will be 24/7, [but] those discussions are ongoing … it’s matching up commitments with how we need to service these folks. The dwell times have been super high, we’ve got to push this cargo out as quickly as we can [and] take advantage of that latent capacity when we’re not using our gates and matching that up with truck power, chassis, and corresponding exports and imports,” Seroka said.

When Seroka was asked when the first terminal would begin operating 24/7, he said more discussions will need to take place.

The two ports, which are responsible for about 40 percent of all imports into the United States, are on track to get more than 20 million container units this year, Hacegaba said, which is significantly more than 17.5 million units in 2020. SOURCE

I consider it prudent to have enough food and water and supplies in your home which will carry you and your family for months. If you can’t do that, at least have enough for one month. Hubby and I began stocking these things when Obama was president. We felt that it was the Holy Spirit warning us.

There is something which I cannot seem to stop thinking about. I am NOT saying that this will happen, but I am wondering if our “Occupier” of the White House is setting us up to be overtaken by the Chinese. God forbid it, but we MUST be ready for anything at this point in time.

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

FDA Panel Unanimously Recommends Authorization of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Booster: WATCH OUT FOR THIS KILL SHOT FOR MANY

From epochtimes.com

FDA Panel Unanimously Recommends Authorization of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Booster

A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel voted unanimously on Oct. 14 to recommend that the agency allow millions of Americans to get a booster shot of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The 19–0 vote came after hours of discussions and presentations in an all-virtual meeting.

Moderna officials presented data from clinical trials, including a small trial that studied the safety and effectiveness of a booster shot, as did officials from Israel, one of the first countries in the world to start giving booster shots, and the FDA, which performed an analysis of Moderna’s data but didn’t support or oppose the company’s application for an emergency use authorization expansion.

The FDA can overrule the panel’s recommendations but rarely does so. If the recommendation is approved, anyone aged 65 and older will be able to get a Moderna booster shot if they’ve received the primary two doses of the Moderna series. People between the ages of 18 and 64 who are deemed “at high risk of severe COVID-19” or whose “frequent institutional or occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19” will also have access to the booster shot.

SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19.

The boosters would be a 50 microgram dose for people at least six months after they’ve received their second dose, which is itself typically administered one month after the initial dose.

The primary two-dose series is 100 micrograms each.

Moderna said its small trial, consisting of just 171 people who got the regular primary series and a half-dose booster, showed a smaller amount could still bolster protection against CCP virus infection.

Officials discussed how data from other trials signal that the vaccine is still holding up well against severe disease, but that there’s been plummeting effectiveness against infection, particularly after the Delta variant became dominant in the United States.

Some panel members struck a skeptical tone on widespread boosters, pointing to the small number of people who got another shot and were studied and highlighting how some populations, including young, healthy people, don’t seem to need another shot.

“I’m not wild about a bunch of 20-year-olds going out and getting a booster dose, unless they’re at increased risk of either exposure or severe outcome,” Dr. Mark Sawyer, professor of clinical pediatrics at the University of California–San Diego School of Medicine and a temporary panel voting member, said before the vote.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel will ultimately make the decision on who should get a Moderna booster, Sawyer said, though it’s in danger of being overruled by the agency’s head, as happened with Pfizer’s additional shot.

There was discussion about amending the third piece of the recommendation, but a number of members brushed aside the talk, in part because of a desire to match the recommendation the same panel gave for a booster for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in September. No one dissented.

“We already approved it for Pfizer. I don’t see how we can possibly not approve it for Moderna and not have most U.S. folks be completely confused. I know that’s not part of what we’re supposed to think about, but I think it’s a pragmatic issue,” said Dr. Stanley Perlman, a temporary voting member and a professor in the University of Iowa’s Departments of Microbiology and Immunology.

Dr. Cody Meissner, a professor of pediatrics at the Tufts University School of Medicine and a panel member, twice asked for evidence that people can be at high risk for serious complications based on their work. Dr. Doran Fink, an FDA official, said there was no “specific data,” but that there’s concern about so-called long COVID, or alleged problems that stem from COVID-19 and are seen even after somebody stops testing positive for the disease.

Meissner endorsed the recommendations, but warned the panel against voting for evidence-free language.

“If we can’t defend these recommendations based on evidence, it’s going to further complicate getting this vaccine into every single adult American, and that’s really what we want to do,” Meissner said.

Dr. James Hildreth, president and CEO of Meharry Medical College and a temporary voting member (pdf), challenged Meissner, saying that the only evidence he needed for the occupational risk advice was that minorities are more likely to have underlying conditions, putting them at higher risk of severe cases of COVID-19.

Perlman said the piece was important because the United States can’t afford to have health care workers test positive for COVID-19, because that means they’ll have to miss work, even if they’re not showing symptoms.

Many spoke in favor of advising the FDA to widen the emergency use authorization again, after previously allowing people with weak immune systems to get a third dose of the vaccine. They said the fact that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are similar means that data regarding Pfizer booster shots, including virtually all the information from Israel, informed their decision, as did the millions of Americans who have already gotten the third shot.

“We need boosters in some populations,” Sawyer said.

Dr. Patrick Moore, a temporary voting member and a professor at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, said his vote was based on “more of a gut feeling” than serious data.

“The data itself is not strong but it is certainly going in a direction that is supportable of this vote,” Moore said.

Panel members are set to meet again on Oct. 15 to consider whether to advise the FDA to expand authorization for Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

When you hear about the “Booster” think of the articles I have written concerning the “Cytokine Storm.” Here is an excerpt about this deadly disease:

What exactly is a Cytokine Storm?

This fatal condition happens in late stage Covid 19. The patient’s immune system emits an enormous number of “Cytokines” (proteins) into the blood stream and instead of the immune system fighting the Virus, the Cytokines cause severe inflammation throughout the body and attacks all organs. This causes multi- organ failure and the patient dies. Most people who die from Covid, die from a cytokine storm. This fatal condition happens in late stage Covid 19.

Brothers and sisters in Christ – I do believe that the “booster shots” being pushed lately are a picture of the deadly cytokine storm when the patient suddenly encounters the wild virus yet again. People are being told that the “boosters” will help them, when in actuality they will most likely bring death.instead of the immune system fighting the Virus, the Cytokines cause severe inflammation throughout the body and attacks all organs.

Virginia Mother Who Survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution Sees Parallels in America

Brethren, if you are a student of history and what this women says is true; then you know that we are in deep trouble.

Virginia Mother Who Survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution Sees Parallels in America

Chair Mao slaughtered at least 165 million people – Chinese people. Right now we could call him the worst mass murderer in the world – ever.

But with the globalists chomping at the bit to reduce the population of the world to less that 500,000; if that is accomplished, the monstrous globalists will take the lead over Mao.

If we lived in a perfect world, the globalists who are killing millions of people with the Jab would be arrested – hauled off to prison with no bail posted. Then they should be tried for crimes against humanity – The Nuremberg Code.

This experiment on the human race is like none other in the history of the world. I cannot begin to fathom how many people in various countries will be dead.

The Epoch Times piece:

The communist political movement that devastated China decades ago is unfolding in America, warned Xi Van Fleet, a parent-turned-activist who made national headlines after speaking out against critical race theory(CRT) at a school board meeting.

“When the Cultural Revolution started, I was a first grader,” the Virginia mother told EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders.” She said that all classes ceased at schools and colleges as older students proclaimed themselves Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.

Emboldened by Mao’s slogan “To Rebel is Justified,” the Red Guards did not hesitate to instigate violence and destruction on everyone and everything they considered “counter-revolutionary.”

“With Mao’s approval, no one could stop them,” said Van Fleet, recalling a story she heard from someone who witnessed the Red Guards beating to death a man, who was deemed an “oppressor” and “exploiter” for simply being able to withdraw a large sum of money from his bank. The perpetrators faced no consequences for the killing, since the criminal justice system was already paralyzed.

Another key feature of the Red Guards movement was to attack the “Four Olds,” namely “old ideas, old culture, old customs, and old habits.” To enforce what Van Fleet described as a “cancel culture,” the Red Guards would go door to door to search and destroy any item that was connected to the period before the communist takeover of China.

“I remember this whole street was just a mess of things destroyed, and the people, those homeowners, howling and crying,” she said.

While the madness and lawlessness of Mao’s Cultural Revolution may sound extreme to Americans, Van Fleet warns that America is following a similar path.

“One of the things that I noticed is people are afraid,” she said. “There is the right way to talk. There are the right ideas, and those who don’t share it feel like, if they tell their own opinion, they might run the risk of being considered racist—a word like China’s ‘counter-revolution.’”

The term “racism,” much like the vaguely defined “counter-revolution,” no longer means anything but serves as a political weapon, according to Van Fleet. “For the longest time, my understanding of racism is that someone who discriminates someone else based on the race,” she said. “But in the last few years it has changed its meaning. Anyone who kind of disagrees with the the ideology from the left becomes a racist.”

During the Cultural Revolution, the term “historical counter-revolution” was used to criminalize people for what they did or said in the past. Van Fleet said there is also an American version of it.

“In Virginia, Gov. [Ralph] Northam was called today a racist, because in the past, when he was in college, he wore blackface,” she said. “That is the equivalent of Chinese historical counter-revolutionary.”

In Mao’s China, citizens were classified into the favored “Five Red Categories” and the undesirable “Five Black Categories” based on their political identities. Descendants of members of the latter group, which included rich farmers and other “class enemies,” were routinely humiliated and forced to go to “struggle sessions” where they were made to confess their privileged status. Van Fleet said this echoes with what advocates of CRT push to Americans and their children.

“Does that remind us of CRT?” she said. “[According to CRT] if you are born white, you are an oppressor; if you’re born black, you’re oppressed, and as oppressed people, you have no hope in this oppressive society.”

“That’s the most effective way to divide people, and that’s from the Marxist playbook to divide,” she continued, pointing out that CRT is Marxist class struggle rhetoric repackaged to focus on race so that it works better in American society. “And then they have gender, sexuality, and intersectionality—all of these are tools to divide and they are rooted in cultural Marxism. Mao used that, the [American] left is using it now.”

“What’s happened here in America is nothing new,” she said. “It happened in China, it happened to me. If we let it go, and not stopping it, [we] will have the same result. The result of the Cultural Revolution is the total destruction of the society, and that’s what awaits us if we don’t stop it.” Source

Today I saw our Commander & thief speaking to the press. He was reading from a teleprompter as he showed pictures of dozens of ships at various docks in the U.S. He said that the ships were filled with cargo and desperately wanted to have the goods off-loaded. Then he said “They cannot.”

He then went into why the cargo could not be off-loaded. He said that we do not have enough truck drivers to deliver these goods. He warned of empty store shelves and as much doom and gloom as he could read on the monitor.

He even said that Christmas might be spoiled this year because there will not be enough real or fake trees. I was expecting any minute for him to slip on a Grinch suit!

Keep your eyes on Jesus.

He is in full control!

And anyway – the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ certainly does not even require a Christmas tree! We have one each year as a tradition.

ITCHY HIVES After Being Close to Vaxxed Person: Then a Friend Sends me a Surprising Message Which Confirmed my Suspicion

Last week, I asked for prayer on my Facebook page because I was covered with hives – very itchy hives. I just realized that one of my friends had written to me and I opened it yesterday. I was so shocked when I read her message. She gave me permission to place the message here:

Hi Geri, I don’t suspect by your post that you’re vaccinated, and I’m not either. I’m messaging you, because I wanted you to know my experience with a miserable rash I’ve had. I get it whenever I get near a “vaccinated” person, and it seems more so with the Moderno jab. I break out a couple days after being in close contact with a jabbed person in the most intense itch that I’ve ever had in my life.

I have had poison ivy/poison oak from head to toe, where the doctor said it was the worst case he ever saw, so when I say this was worse, it was..the itch starts in my hands, and feet, and then spreads everywhere , it’s so intense that I feel like I’m going to lose my mind, and then a few days later it turns into a rash of blister type almost hives all over. I scratch so bad that I end up bleeding. Nothing was helping! I tried everything I could think of. I was terrified to go to the doctor, because I knew they were all jabbed, so I put a post out about it in a group, and a naturopath type doctor in there told me to make Pineneedle tea.

She said she’s been seeing a lot of cases the same as mine, even her own sister. Thank God in New Hampshire white pine is the state tree, I think. I don’t know for sure, I should check, but we have them everywhere, and we also have a Concolor pine tree that my daughter and son-in-law bought us for Christmas a couple years ago, it’s still on the small side but it smells and taste like oranges.

After about 3 cups of pine needle tea, my itch was 50% better, by the next day, 75% and got better from there. I’m good if I keep drinking it before I go out, and after I get home. If I don’t drink the Pineneedle tea then it will come back, the itch is not as intense as it was at first before I knew about the tea, but it will come back unless I do the tea before, and after. So I just wanted you to know that in case this is the reason for your rash. Hope if it is it helps.

And the I forgot to tell you, but my brother and son also get the itch and rash, only not as severe as I was. My daughter had a rash but no itch after doing a craft fair and being in close contact with jabbed people. God Bless!

________________________________________________________________________

Brethren, I purchased pine needle tea from Amazon. It should be here soon.

I did have a video appointment with my doctor and he gave me prednisone which I really do not like to take. He also gave me a script for a medicine for itching. I am praying that the pine needle tea works for me AND that if there are readers going through the same thing, they will benefit from this information. I will let the readers know how I am doing on the tea.
