Biden Falsely Proclaims The ‘Much-Predicted’ Christmas Supply Chain Crisis ‘Didn’t Occur’

Biden Falsely Proclaims The ‘Much-Predicted’ Christmas Supply Chain Crisis ‘Didn’t Occur’

Perhaps even more insultingly, that same day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki literally declared that “we’ve saved Christmas”

Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis is not over, not by a long shot.

But if you listened to him and other officials in his administration this week, you’d think everything was hunky-dory here at Christmas time, with the only supply issues being a demand for a popular toy or whatnot that you would typically see sell out this time of year anyway.

During a Wednesday meeting with his supply chain disruptions task force, which includes business leaders from major retail outlets and shipping companies like Fed Ex, Biden looked straight at the camera and proclaimed that “the much-predicted crisis didn’t occur”:

First, supply chains. And I owe a lot to the people — the business people on this call — on this Zoom. Earlier this fall, we heard a lot of dire warnings about supply chain problems leading to a crisis around the holidays, so we acted. A lot of recommendations of the people that you see on the screen here. I wish we were all able to do this in person.

We brought together business and labor leaders to solve problems.

And much — you know, the much-predicted crisis didn’t occur. Packages are moving. Gifts are being delivered. Shelves are not empty.

Watch:

Perhaps even more insultingly, that same day, White House press secretary Jen Psaki literally declared that “we’ve saved Christmas,” pointing to a New York Times article which she suggested validated the administration’s claims:

There are, of course, big problems with both Biden’s and Psaki’s claims.

For starters, the Times story Psaki deceptively referenced noted that the main reason some Americans are seeing less of a supply chain issue here at Christmas time than anticipated is not because of Joe Biden, but because many people shopped way earlier than normal and retailers got smart and ordered things way in advance so they’d have plenty of time to get the gifts/merch in before Christmas.

But that doesn’t mean everyone who shopped months ago is getting what they ordered.

CBS News reported this week on how “many last-minute shoppers are hearing the words ‘out of stock’” as a “nationwide supply chain shortage has left orders that were supposed to be delivered to stores on cargo ships.”

They talked to one Houston toy store owner who says he has been waiting on “items [that] never arrived even though it’s been months since they were expected—leaving many of his holiday shoppers empty-handed.”

Reuters also filed a report on how candy manufacturers are unable to keep up with heavy demand in the midst of a sugar shortage. Hammond’s Candies, the largest wholesale supplier of candy canes in the country, told the news outlet that they aren’t taking any new orders from customers at this time not just because of the sugar shortage but also because they’re short-staffed, plus everything is more expensive now.

On the same day the Times published their piece Psaki cited during the press briefing, they published another one (not cited by Psaki, of course) on how “Supply Chain Shortages Are Dimming Christmas Displays”:

This month, retail experts said, evidence of the supply chain upheaval could be seen in the picked-over decoration aisles in stores, and on websites warning customers of the limited inventory for certain holiday staples.

There are many more examples along those lines but I think the point has been made.

It’s safe to say that “the much-predicted crisis didn’t occur” is a strong contender for entry into the Gaslighting Hall of Fame, right along with “we’ve saved Christmas,” which ranks right up there as one of the dumbest things ever uttered from a White House podium. One only needs to look at the ongoing congestion at our nation’s ports to understand why.

Biden’s Big Lie is for idiots like Bette Midler.

    Inflation isn’t caused by supply chain issues, it’s caused by deficit spending. The progressive fascists didn’t want people to think about deficit spending so they lied and blamed supply chain problems.

When you never get outside the beltway how would you know?

    Why didn’t this brain dead idiot travel to the Ports of LA-Long Beach or NY-NJ and see the crisis in person. There are over 100 ships that the DOT spread out from LA down to Mexico to make the Ports look less congested.

    That is not working – fresh produce from South America is rotting on the ships waiting to be unloaded.

Well, what does he know? He’s all taken care of. He’s got everything he requires: plenty of cue cards for his limited speaking needs, chocolate pudding, disposable bibs and a lifetime supply of depends.

BIG LIE

Big lies are the Jackass arty’s favorite kind of lie. Oh, that and assusing others of “big lies”. Like a accusing Trump of the “big lie” that the 2020 election was screwed up. Anyone with a brain can see it was not normal. Set aside the election machines – the media full-on bias, the censorship of news favorable to Trump or unffaforale to Biden, the $400+ billion Marc Zuckerberg effort; the Google search results manipulation. Wow. I could go on.

Then there are the Big Lies told by Jackasses –
1. Russia Hoax
2. The border is closed
3. Afghanistan was an amazing success
4. Covid could not have come from a lab
5. “Mostly peaceful protests”
6. We don’t teach CRT in public schools

Yep. I think the Jackass Party is the master of the “Big Lie”

I talked to a Mom and Pop gas station in town here that is known for their fried chicken.

They have been waiting on an ordered industrial grade fryer since May with no end in sight.

The chain is not “saved”.

They think we’re stupid.

Bullshit on toast.

Yesterday, my wife went grocery shopping. The clerk asked her if she found everything she wanted. My wife replied that they were out of brussels sprouts and apple juice, two of the four items she had specifically gone in to get. The manager chimed in that every week, they were ordering a certain amount of restock, and every week the warehouse was delivering only about half of what they requested.

Reminds me of that Iraqi general telling the world there were no U.S. forces in Baghdad as the M1 tanks literally turned the corner in the feed behind him.

Someone should make a meme about that, probably the kids too young to get the reference.

“The big lie (German: große Lüge) is a gross distortion or misrepresentation of the truth, used especially as a propaganda technique.[1][2] The German expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, to describe the use of a lie so colossal that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” Hitler claimed that the technique was used by Jews to blame Germany’s loss in World War I on German general Erich Ludendorff, who was a prominent nationalist political leader in the Weimar Republic.”

Leopards. Or, Mountain Lions.

Whatever, Cat ladies can lie to themselves and the world because there is no price. You can get away with lying to a dog for a long time because, it’s a dog. Itll make some noise. A dog will put up with a lot. Maybe too much.

Try that with a wild cat. The cat will f***ing frisk you. And, whoo boy if the cat is big enough.

It used to be that a euphemism for a tough guy was, “Worth his weight in Wild Cats.”

On another note, I was driving the ‘Stang and I couldn’t help but enjoy myself. Because even in the sunset of his life Carroll Shelby succumbed to the lure of the automatic. How long has the Ford automatic transmission been this invisible?

A transmission is generally the kind of thing you don’t notice when it’s working. But I was actively thinking and being grateful for everything that isn’t broken on my car.

Because I’m about to but a 1976 International Scout II,

But he used his squinty-eyed stare for emphasis which means something but I don’t know what. “All joking aside, I mean it….. whatever I said…. supply chain or something… where am I?”

This is the kind of comment you’d expect from a man who hasn’t driven himself, much less purchased a car on his own dime, for the better part of two-decades, or more. To properly understand our current supply chain crisis, one needn’t look any further than your local car dealer. New car supply is depleted. It’s not an exaggeration to say some brands in some markets have next to no new inventory at all.

Is this due to the silicon processor shortage? Partly. But, there are a LOT of other component parts that are very difficult to come by. Leather – synthetic and genuine – foam, wiring looms, plastic parts and thousands of other components are in short supply. It’s a mess…a mess you wouldn’t notice when you and your entire family is chauffeured.

    Indeed correct. I have a car at the auto body shop (struck by a tree in a storm). Been there for two months now due to back ordered parts. Manager told me it was a good thing that the damaged part wasn’t my tailgate. He said he hasn’t seen one in a long time.

My takeaway is “Let’s go, Brandon”.

    Can we sing that Christmas morning? I ordered a Samsung TV for my wife at the end of November -delivery date January 2, since extended 39 days to February 10. Let’s Go Brandon.

TRY buying a computer part, such as a graphics card!!!!

Dell has informed customers that certain computer parts are not available until AUGUST 2022!!!!!!

CBS News reported this week on how “many last-minute shoppers are hearing the words ‘out of stock’” as a “nationwide supply chain shortage has left orders that were supposed to be delivered to stores on cargo ships.”

And it’s going to be interesting to watch as those long delayed holiday orders finally show up at retailers warehouses and they are refused and turned back because they are no longer needed or wanted.

Major appliances are a big problem….this year I waited six months for my freezer, my friend has been told eight months for a dishwasher and seven months for a fridge….No supply chain issues…yeah right.
