AMERICANS HORRIFIED BY EMPTY SHELVES COAST TO COAST

By Michael Snyder - theeconomiccollapseblog.com

A year ago, we were promised that the Biden regime would be leading us into a new golden era of prosperity. Obviously, that has not happened. Instead, we are dealing with bare store shelves and painfully high prices from coast to coast.

Many are comparing this crisis to the Jimmy Carter era of the 1970s, but we didn't have persistent shortages for months on end back then. At this point, nobody can deny what is happening. Even the Washington Post is admitting that "social media is swamped with pictures of empty grocery shelves".

The Biden administration promised to resolve our supply chain problems, but they just keep getting worse. When Fox News asked one grocery shopper about the empty shelves, he delivered a chilling response that many of us will not forget any time soon: "It's like a Soviet store during 1981. It's horrible."

Prior to the pandemic, many Americans believed that it was impossible for something like this to ever happen in the United States of America. But it is happening.

Another shopper that was interviewed by Fox News actually used the word "starving" in his response...

    Larry, another D.C. shopper, told Fox News: "Whatever it is, I know they need to hurry up and get this straightened out because people will be starving. It's going to get rough if it keeps on continuing like that."

    Multiple shoppers rattled off a litany of groceries they couldn't find, ranging from milk to beverages to produce.

    "Everything, meat, egg, dairy, certain breads were out, most vegetables, it was all fresh items," one man said as he left a Giant grocery store.

No, nobody in this country is going to be "starving" in the near future, but without a doubt things are starting to get really crazy.

In fact, things are so bad that even CNN has been forced to admit that our store shelves are being "wiped clean"...

    Grocery store shelves across America are wiped clean, and they're staying empty as stores struggle to quickly restock everyday necessities such as milk, bread, meat, canned soups and cleaning products.

    Disgruntled shoppers have unleashed their frustration on social media over the last several days, posting photos on Twitter of bare shelves at Trader Joe's locations, Giant Foods and Publix stores, among many others.

If fear of Omicron can do this, what would our country look like during a major long-term national emergency? You might want to start thinking about that.

Grocery chains are very much aware that a wave of "panic buying" has erupted around the nation, and so they are trying to do what they can to keep it from getting even worse...

    Grocery stores certainly are aware of the empty shelves, Lempert said, and they are trying to mitigate panic buying, which only worsens it the situation.

    One strategy: Fanning out products. They're doing this by putting out both limited varieties and limited quantities of each product in an attempt to prevent hoarding and stretch out their supplies between deliveries.

But fanning out products isn't really going to fool anyone.

We can all see what is going on, and all of the photos that are going up on social media are just going to fuel the frenzy even more.

The good news is that at least things are better in this country than they are in much of the rest of the globe.

For example, people in Cuba are now waiting up to 11 hours in line just to get some food...

    "I spent almost all night here just to buy something. It is not easy, it is a big sacrifice just to be able to eat," shopper Edelvis Miranda, 47, told AFP at a market in Havana last week.

    The homemaker had taken her place in the queue at about 1:00 am, and finally left around 11 hours later, just before noon.

So be thankful for the blessings that we still have. Hopefully we will get some short-term relief and store shelves will start to look better once this wave of Omicron fades and warmer temperatures arrive.

But nothing is going to keep inflation from continuing to spiral out of control. According to CNBC, the median income in this country has actually fallen over the past two years even as the cost of living has risen substantially...

    As consumers pay more for everything from groceries to gasoline, household income is failing to keep pace with a higher overall cost of living, according to recent reports.

    Over the past two years, median income fell 3% while the cost of living rose nearly 7%, due, in part, to rising housing and medical costs.

In an attempt to keep making ends meet, U.S. consumers have now gone into more debt than ever before...

    The average U.S. household with debt now owes $155,622, or more than $15 trillion altogether, including debt from credit cards, mortgages, home equity lines of credit, auto loans, student loans and other household obligations - up 6.2% from a year ago.

In America today, most people are just barely scraping by from month to month.

Living paycheck to paycheck is not a good place to be, but that is reality for the vast majority of our population.

So when economic conditions get extremely bad in this country, most Americans are not going to have any sort of a financial cushion to fall back on.

And since the vast majority of our population is not "prepping" in any way, shape or form, any sort of long-term food shortage would get exceedingly painful very, very quickly.

For years, I have been encouraging my readers to make common sense preparations for the time when economic chaos would rock our nation.

Now that time has arrived, and most of our fellow citizens are completely and utterly unprepared for what is happening.

    They are creating Holomodor 2.0. They shut over 6000 farms water off in the central valley of California. California provides 20-40% of all US produce. Now shuttering meat....and buying farmland and planting toxic plants on it to scorch earth the soil.

    Don't even get me started on how lake Orroville which was overflowing 3 years ago and is a strategic California state emergency reserve for 7 years ...is now empty. They are dumping the water in the ocean. Prepare accordingly.

    They can't attack the American population in an outright fashion because of all those pesky gun owners, so they'll cripple you by attacking the food supply.

    I believe there will be no Midterms. The Coup of 2020 has not ended.

    Trump would get the gas to $2 a gallon and get the Federal foot off the peoples neck.

    "Whatever it is, I know they need to hurry up and get this straightened out because people will be starving. It's going to get rough if it keeps on continuing like that."

    Looking around during my recent trips to Wal-Mart I saw a lot more "Oprahs" than I did "Olive Oil's."

    It's the same here in Australia, major supermarkets running low on many goods, especially meat, talk of milk products running out soon as well. But here, it's all because people who have a cold or have been around someone with a cold, are not allowed to work.

    I think the Omicron flu is a big cause here. BUT when you already have significant supply shortages due to all the economic shutdowns all over the world, then you double down on the labor pinch by firing anyone who refuses a vaccine, then you get hit by bad weather and another round of the flu, you are going to be in some serious trouble.

    The frustrating thing is that it's all so preventable and therefore being caused, not just a side effect of the situation.

    ***

    When people have no food, government will have far bigger things to worry about than whether or not people are vaccinated. I would not want to be a member of the permanent ruling class under such conditions.

    This is planned. Politicians and bankers are the exact people you should never trust. I'm all set for a complete economic collapse. I need to do a few more grocery hauls, but I'm ok. Took an exceptional amount of work. But it's done.

    ***

    Something is happening behind the scenes. Prepare for the worst.

    ***

    The economy is not improving. It's getting worse. More people will be quitting or retire their jobs. They don't want the poison jab.

    ***

    Some of the empty shelves are because they don't have enough employees to restock merchandise.

    ***

    Empty shelves and the illegitimate Biden coming out as a dictator. It's all coming together. Civil War II.

    ***

    The swamp will try and starve us into submission. Give up your guns and take the death shot you can eat. There's no way I'll submit.

    ***

    At Family Dollar we could not get bottled water. We were told there is a labor shortage at bottling plants due to refusal to get the vaccine.
