Where is America headed in the next five months?

Uncharted territory?

Perhaps a complete breakdown in supply-chain management? The end of just-in-time inventory? If there is hope, it lies not in the proles, but the truck drivers. For they could halt commerce overnight in cities all across America working to stop systemic racism/implicit bias/institutional racism by simply refusing to deliver goods. [Truckers say they won’t deliver to cities that defund police, according to poll, Fox59.com, June 16, 2020]”

Cities nationwide are eyeing cuts to police departments amid calls for elected leaders to defund or disband their police departments.

But this push to “defund police” hasn’t necessarily sat well with truck drivers on the front lines of a global pandemic and protests.

A new poll suggests that 3 out of 4 truck drivers would fear for their personal safety if police departments were disbanded or defunded.

CDLLife, a news website for the commercial trucking industry, asked drivers if they would deliver to cities with defunded or disbanded police departments.

According to the website, 79% of over 1,283 respondents said they would refuse loads to such cities.

Truck driving is among the deadliest jobs in the United State,s with 966 drivers killed on the job last year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

As America grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, truck drivers have been risking their lives to keep products moving to stores, hospitals and elsewhere.

“I will not deliver to an area with a disbanded police department. My life matters and I do this for my family. We are already at the mercy of these towns and cities with laws and hate against us for parking, getting a meal or even using a restroom,” one respondent told CDL News.

“For my own safety and security of my customers’ loads, I have already informed my dispatcher that I will refuse all loads to cities that have defunded their police departments,” another said.

Nine members of the Minneapolis City Council on Sunday announced they intend to defund and dismantle the city’s police department. Other cities, such as New York and Los Angeles, have moved funds for police to other resources such as social and youth programs.

Best bet for short term investments?

Guns and ammo. And then more ammo.

  1. Had to change names since my previous handle, Rooster, wasn’t being published any longer. I’ve chosen my handles as a point to awaken or alert people reading this to wake up and be alerted to what’s going on.

    It seems the Trump rally tonight was sabotaged by the left, as they falsely applied for tickets to the event but then never showed. Unfortunately, Trump and his campaign played right into this, touting the numbers before the actual event, but that plays right into the vanity of the administration. The left has perfected their gorilla tactics and the Right has much to learn. I will always be grateful to Trump for exposing the corruption of the government and rarely backing down. However, this has become a battle of ideology, and the figureheads don’t really matter at this point.

    The next battle front is mail in ballots. This is what the left is counting on to steal this election and all future ones. The question I ask is: do you really think the Marxist left mayors who tell the police to stand down and advocate for violent rebellions, will all of a sudden on election night put aside their rebellion and fairly count votes? Especially with the untraceable mail in ballots being approved? Of course not!!! Prepare accordingly, expect things to deteriorate quickly.

    I don't know about the truckers saving us from the Negroes. I used to be a trucker. I drove a truck after college delivering appliances and I crossed America for myself, once going to grad school with all my car and furniture inside a big truck and once coming back. I liked driving a truck. But there may not be much if any human truck driving soon. Amazon is looking into driverless delivery trucks. So is Elon Musk. These are the too guys building rockets to go to Mars or the Lagrange points. So if it can be done it almost certainly will be done. Prototype driverless long haul and delivery trucks are on the roads now. This will be a major disruption in the job market. A significant slice of the male job market is in driving trucks and cabs. Most of these are white drivers but a lot are blacks. When trucks are self driving the Negroes may be more not less agitated.

    Trucks still deliver to the Dover-Calais route where “immigrants’ violently break into the trucks.

    MSM make sure that nobody is aware of the danger, not even the truckers who have only cursory knowledge of some rare special event. This is in obedience of the #PCGagOrder or #PresseKodex12.1 which makes sure people don’t know the truth and thusly don’t develop prejudice against “minorities”

    Life goes on, even on South African farms. Media and police continue to cover up as required by official media and police ethics codes. Social media are getting air tight, too.

    Agree. If American truckers refuse to deliver to unpoliced cities (which refusal I fully agree with), then some "Logistics Solutions" company will just hire/import West Asian or South American drivers to do it instead. Sure, they'll lose a few, but they'll just send a "death benefit" check to the widow in Uzbekistan, file an insurance claim on the freight load, hire the next guy in line, and sign the next delivery contract. Race to the bottom.

    If truckers can impose some regulatory discipline on US commerce again, then that could be a game changer. Then truckers could exercise a logistics veto on the insane local governments whose reckless actions are endangering their residents.


    "We must develop large scale private message boards or old fashioned email lists for information exchange."
     
    Yes, trusting the tech oligarchs with our communications was clearly a major error, but given the logic of network effects and what were the expected norms at the time, I don't see how it could have been averted. Still, now that the magnitude of the error is clear, we should take steps to disengage from them, even disengaging from their physical hardware to the extent possible. Your Verizon/Apple/Google (VAG) phone may be a convenience but it is also a deep state surveillance vector. Fortunately, viable alternatives are starting to come on the market. There was a discussion of this on another thread, and it appears that there are even more radical options coming online.

    The trick with communications is the network effect. A comms terminal is useless if no one else is using it. The right needs to coalesce in comms channels not converged by GloboHomo. Gab is good. Bypassing converged ISPs and chipsets is even better.

    Not one single trucker I know will deliver to democrat cities they value their life more than the violent BLM and Antifa. Let the mother fuckers starve and start killing each other than the problem is solved.

    This is absolutely ridiculous the democrats are destroying the US right in front of every body and not one democrat mayor or governor is doing anything to stop it. They are in fact encouraging it.

    Not sure that the statement about ‘truckers’ or ‘everybody else’ is even close to accurate.

    Just like cops not showing up for work (blue flu), people will do what’s best for them.

    BLM thinks it’s best for them to Burn, Loot and Murder? Truckers may feel its best if they starve.

    What is true is, interstate commerce will not be allowed to remain stagnant for long and what you WILL eventually see is the military taking over interstate trucking and actually driving into areas like Seattle and delivering them food because that’s the level of ‘fucked-up’ our socialist government operates at.

    Vote they want you to think it is hopeless. The silent majority is exactly that. It is said Trump currently has 40% of the black vote and may be 60% by the time election gets here.

    You think you are in a blue state but you do not realize how many people have woken up.

    Many blacks have said they are voting for Trump but when they are asked by other blacks they say no they are democrat.

    They are afraid to tell their fiends who they are voting for and I can guarantee many of their friends do the same thing. Polls mean nothing because people are lying on the polls plus the MSN lies about the poles too.

    I know you cant possibly think people will actually vote for Biden who has already been in high positions for 43 years and has done absolutely nothing for anyone.

    The silent majority is real and its huge.

    Problem is the truckers aren’t organized. I recall the incident in Minneapolis where a tanker trucker was being blocked by a mob on the interstate. He slowly drove forward and was attacked from the side by the rioters. HE was arrested ,not the rioters for impeding interstate commerce! That was the moment, had the truckers been organized, they could have issued an ultimatum to the Minneapolis mayor. Either you keep the interstates clear or we don’t deliver to any address in the city limits. You won’t have to worry about the grocery stores being looted because there will be nothing in them to loot.

    As to ammo. you won’t need a lot, 50-100 rounds per gun ought to do. You won’t be engaging in fire and maneuver tactics or having to lay down suppressive fire against trained troops in any putative urban engagement. It will be a short sharp exchange of gunfire against thugs. Hopefully you will hit them before they hit you.

    If there was one weapon I would like to have it would be something to provide indirect fire like a grenade. When I was a kid you could, with some difficulty, buy M-80 firecrackers. I would dip them into a bowl of Elmers mucilage glue and then into a bowl of BBs. Afterwards you had a heavy shrapnel covered projectile you could fire with a wristrocket slingshot. Have someone light the fuze when you were in firing position and hit the deck cause those BBs would be flying everywhere and with more velocity than from a Daisy BB gun. Fire one through a window into a room and you’ve injured or killed anyone in it.

    I get a chuckle out of these proposals to eliminate the cops and replace them with social workers. I know something about this because I was once a social worker and a sort of cop social worker.

    I had been a math and science guy in my first two years of college. I tutored calculus and I was college TA Chemistry. But I decided to major in economics. Unfortunately I soon discovered that no women ever take economics. I was lonely so I switched to psychology which was full of girls. I met one in one of my psychology classes and married her. That’s how I became a social worker. I took experimental psychology (I cut up rats) not abnormal or social psychology but all my friends were becoming social workers and I did too. Big mistake.

    So I and my new wife became San Francisco county social workers. As it happens I was one of the few males social workers. It’s always been a traditional woman’s profession. There were a few other guys but I was not like them. I was exploited by the Welfare Department. I was big and a normal manly man. I took weight lifting and judo in college. I played basketball. One of the other male social workers was a very sweet guy. He had washed out as a Trappist monk – he just had to talk. Lots of male social workers are ex-seminarians.

    Soon I became the the guy in the building who handled the ‘difficult’ cases. If there was a welfare father who threatened to beat up his female social worker, the case was transferred to me. I could hardly object and have some nice woman get beaten up. I would hear on the PA system that some “angry black man” was in the building with a gun. Damn I said to myself I’m going to get another case.

    Social workers like to say “I’m not a cop”. I understand the cops like to say “I’m not a social worker”. Both are right. One day I was called on to go to the lobby because a male recipient (AFDC-U) was threatening everyone with a gun. I was beginning to get annoyed at being used like the departmental Tact-Squad. I had all the worst cases and was called out whenever someone pulled a gun or made a threat, but no more money. But I went down to the lobby where I was often called on to break up fights. The bad guy was out of control. He was waving the revolver around and yelling about some grievance – usually they complained about money (they wanted more). The incident was being attended to by one of the few other male social workers – mild and meek sort of guy. Suddenly the bad guy in frustration throws the revolver through the large plate glass window that opened on to Mission street. I was relieved. I wasn’t going to get shot by this lunatic. But then the other social worker goes out on the side walk picks up the gun and politely hands it back to the wild man. If there was justice in the world he would have taken the gun blown that idiot social worker away.

    That was about when I decided to get out of there and go to graduate school. I wasn’t like the other social workers.

    I already knew that I was not like the other men. We had had a guy in my unit for a while who one day just collapsed in grief. He went out to the stairwell and burst into tears moaning over and over “It’s just not fair”. He couldn’t take.

    The funny thing was social working wasn’t hard it was in fact corrupt. It was a featherbedding kind of job. Most of those young social science graduates had never held a real job where they did real work. They would wander in around eight and sit at their desks until ten reading the newspaper and complaining about all the tasks they had been assigned. They would work until noon and sign out into the field. They would sign out for the rest of the day to make home visits but as I said most social workers were women and most of black ghettos where the welfare recipients lived were pretty damn dangerous. They signed out to the field but went home instead. The large majority of the social workers who worked at the SF Welfare Department at that time worked two hours a day and complained bitterly about being overworked.

    No one visited homes in the nasty neighborhoods except me. I was, I think the only one to make a home visit to Hunter’s Point in those years. Eventually management and politicians caught on and abolished all the typists who typed up all those dictated narratives about home visits that had never occurred. Some social workers just spoke gibberish which got typed up and formed a part of the huge case files that no on ever read. I was also as far as I know the only social worker who ever pursued a welfare fraud case. The official departmental story was one percent of all cases had fraud. I did my own count. Fifty percent of my cases had fraud.

    This was in the late sixties. The Department was at least as leftist as anything today. We had an official member of the Communist Party of America on the floor above me. The party put him there to recruit. The girl who I replaced told me he wasn’t left enough. They had contempt for real card carrying communists – too moderate. She quit to go work in a factory somewhere where she hoped to incite the workers to revolution. She was hard core.

    So when I hear proposals to swap out the cops with social workers, I chuckle.

    911 calls should be rerouted from the police dispatch to an elite, crack team of crisis negotiators consisting of a local Civil Rights attorney, a Television Reporter, and an SJW certified Yoga Master. The Civil Rights Attorney is there to ensure that the perpetrator's rights are observed. The Reporter is there to document the interactions with the criminal. The Yoga Master is there to diffuse the situation via transcendental meditation and by chanting "oooooommmmmmm m e l - l o w........." If this fails, the team will be equipped with hypoallergenic feathers for tickling the suspect into submission. However, if the culprit dies laughing, then the team will face the death penalty.

    Many blacks have said they are voting for Trump but when they are asked by other blacks they say no they are democrat.

    They are afraid to tell their fiends who they are voting for and I can guarantee many of their friends do the same thing. Polls mean nothing because people are lying on the polls plus the MSN lies about the poles too.

    Problem is the truckers aren't organized. I recall the incident in Minneapolis where a tanker trucker was being blocked by a mob on the interstate. He slowly drove forward and was attacked from the side by the rioters. HE was arrested ,not the rioters for impeding interstate commerce! That was the moment, had the truckers been organized, they could have issued an ultimatum to the Minneapolis mayor. Either you keep the interstates clear or we don't deliver to any address in the city limits. You won't have to worry about the grocery stores being looted because there will be nothing in them to loot.

    As to ammo. you won't need a lot, 50-100 rounds per gun ought to do. You won't be engaging in fire and maneuver tactics or having to lay down suppressive fire against trained troops in any putative urban engagement. It will be a short sharp exchange of gunfire against thugs. Hopefully you will hit them before they hit you.

    If there was one weapon I would like to have it would be something to provide indirect fire like a grenade. When I was a kid you could, with some difficulty, buy M-80 firecrackers. I would dip them into a bowl of Elmers mucilage glue and then into a bowl of BBs. Afterwards you had a heavy shrapnel covered projectile you could fire with a wristrocket slingshot. Have someone light the fuze when you were in firing position and hit the deck cause those BBs would be flying everywhere and with more velocity than from a Daisy BB gun. Fire one through a window into a room and you've injured or killed anyone in it.

    This. People always underestimate normalcy bias. People adapt. People accommodate. People back down. Step by step, with lots of grumbling, but they almost always back down. If the truckers were to cooperate and carry through with their threats, sure. But employers will offer bonuses and enough will take them.

Just as when certain Atlanta cops called in sick (and I’m not a fan of the badge gang, just using an example here) and sought out other districts to join them, they were told no – the other cops were afraid for their salaries and pensions.

    It seems the Trump rally tonight was sabotaged by the left, as they falsely applied for tickets to the event but then never showed. Unfortunately, Trump and his campaign played right into this, touting the numbers before the actual event, but that plays right into the vanity of the administration. The left has perfected their gorilla tactics and the Right has much to learn. I will always be grateful to Trump for exposing the corruption of the government and rarely backing down. However, this has become a battle of ideology, and the figureheads don’t really matter at this point.

    The next battle front is mail in ballots. This is what the left is counting on to steal this election and all future ones. The question I ask is: do you really think the Marxist left mayors who tell the police to stand down and advocate for violent rebellions, will all of a sudden on election night put aside their rebellion and fairly count votes? Especially with the untraceable mail in ballots being approved? Of course not!!! Prepare accordingly, expect things to deteriorate quickly.

These are the too guys building rockets to go to Mars or the Lagrange points. So if it can be done it almost certainly will be done. Prototype driverless long haul and delivery trucks are on the roads now. This will be a major disruption in the job market. A significant slice of the male job market is in driving trucks and cabs.

Just as when certain Atlanta cops called in sick (and I'm not a fan of the badge gang, just using an example here) and sought out other districts to join them, they were told no - the other cops were afraid for their salaries and pensions. It will be the same with trucking. Would love to be wrong, but would bet a lot that I'm not.

  52. Back in the 80’s when I worked in the shipping and receiving department of a major national business in L.A., I got to talk to lots of long haul truckers. Even back then, one I knew got hijacked and robbed. As is, I heard a lot of stories about New York and Detroit where it wasn’t safe and the truckers had to be armed and sometimes fend off robbers when they had to deliver to those cities. So, if truckers do start refusing to go into demtard cities, what do I expect will start happening? There’ll be organized gangs trying to hijack the trucks on the highways or rest areas near those cities to get supplies to sell at inflated prices in the hood. It could be a lucrative “business” for the thieves who’ll no doubt attack in numbers and be armed to the teeth. The best thing for the truckers is to give those cities a wide berth as the thieves won’t be comfortable with (or feel safe) operating too far from their base.

    I get a chuckle out of these proposals to eliminate the cops and replace them with social workers. I know something about this because I was once a social worker and a sort of cop social worker.

    I had been a math and science guy in my first two years of college. I tutored calculus and I was college TA Chemistry. But I decided to major in economics. Unfortunately I soon discovered that no women ever take economics. I was lonely so I switched to psychology which was full of girls. I met one in one of my psychology classes and married her. That's how I became a social worker. I took experimental psychology (I cut up rats) not abnormal or social psychology but all my friends were becoming social workers and I did too. Big mistake.

    So I and my new wife became San Francisco county social workers. As it happens I was one of the few males social workers. It's always been a traditional woman's profession. There were a few other guys but I was not like them. I was exploited by the Welfare Department. I was big and a normal manly man. I took weight lifting and judo in college. I played basketball. One of the other male social workers was a very sweet guy. He had washed out as a Trappist monk - he just had to talk. Lots of male social workers are ex-seminarians.

    Soon I became the the guy in the building who handled the 'difficult' cases. If there was a welfare father who threatened to beat up his female social worker, the case was transferred to me. I could hardly object and have some nice woman get beaten up. I would hear on the PA system that some "angry black man" was in the building with a gun. Damn I said to myself I'm going to get another case.

    Social workers like to say "I'm not a cop". I understand the cops like to say "I'm not a social worker". Both are right. One day I was called on to go to the lobby because a male recipient (AFDC-U) was threatening everyone with a gun. I was beginning to get annoyed at being used like the departmental Tact-Squad. I had all the worst cases and was called out whenever someone pulled a gun or made a threat, but no more money. But I went down to the lobby where I was often called on to break up fights. The bad guy was out of control. He was waving the revolver around and yelling about some grievance - usually they complained about money (they wanted more). The incident was being attended to by one of the few other male social workers - mild and meek sort of guy. Suddenly the bad guy in frustration throws the revolver through the large plate glass window that opened on to Mission street. I was relieved. I wasn't going to get shot by this lunatic. But then the other social worker goes out on the side walk picks up the gun and politely hands it back to the wild man. If there was justice in the world he would have taken the gun blown that idiot social worker away.

    That was about when I decided to get out of there and go to graduate school. I wasn't like the other social workers.

    I already knew that I was not like the other men. We had had a guy in my unit for a while who one day just collapsed in grief. He went out to the stairwell and burst into tears moaning over and over "It's just not fair". He couldn't take.

    The funny thing was social working wasn't hard it was in fact corrupt. It was a featherbedding kind of job. Most of those young social science graduates had never held a real job where they did real work. They would wander in around eight and sit at their desks until ten reading the newspaper and complaining about all the tasks they had been assigned. They would work until noon and sign out into the field. They would sign out for the rest of the day to make home visits but as I said most social workers were women and most of black ghettos where the welfare recipients lived were pretty damn dangerous. They signed out to the field but went home instead. The large majority of the social workers who worked at the SF Welfare Department at that time worked two hours a day and complained bitterly about being overworked.

    No one visited homes in the nasty neighborhoods except me. I was, I think the only one to make a home visit to Hunter's Point in those years. Eventually management and politicians caught on and abolished all the typists who typed up all those dictated narratives about home visits that had never occurred. Some social workers just spoke gibberish which got typed up and formed a part of the huge case files that no on ever read. I was also as far as I know the only social worker who ever pursued a welfare fraud case. The official departmental story was one percent of all cases had fraud. I did my own count. Fifty percent of my cases had fraud.

    This was in the late sixties. The Department was at least as leftist as anything today. We had an official member of the Communist Party of America on the floor above me. The party put him there to recruit. The girl who I replaced told me he wasn't left enough. They had contempt for real card carrying communists - too moderate. She quit to go work in a factory somewhere where she hoped to incite the workers to revolution. She was hard core.

    So when I hear proposals to swap out the cops with social workers, I chuckle.

    911 calls should be rerouted from the police dispatch to an elite, crack team of crisis negotiators consisting of a local Civil Rights attorney, a Television Reporter, and an SJW certified Yoga Master. The Civil Rights Attorney is there to ensure that the perpetrator’s rights are observed. The Reporter is there to document the interactions with the criminal. The Yoga Master is there to diffuse the situation via transcendental meditation and by chanting “oooooommmmmmm m e l – l o w………” If this fails, the team will be equipped with hypoallergenic feathers for tickling the suspect into submission. However, if the culprit dies laughing, then the team will face the death penalty.

    This is not a problem. They will simply hire new truck drivers. Standards of diversity and inclusion will be used to make the truckers look more like the rest of America. They will hire women and blacks ... the women (some) won't be strong enough to handle the job. The blacks will steal from their own trucking lines. Then we will have plenty of truckers "working," drawing disability and sick pay and Juneteeth pay, suing for discrimination when their useless asses get fired ... and then, as predicted, we will have a breakdown in the supply chain.

    Then Michelle Obama will lecture us about the "food deserts" in neighborhoods where the grocery stores were looted and burned ...

It might be interesting to see how well the African in America fares when faced with a real food shortage. Talk about some Niggaz being Hon-gry!

If this killing turns out to be a right-wing attack, President Trump bears direct responsibility, since he has fomented reactionary hatred specifically against the peaceful Capitol Hill occupation, and even threatened to intervene with federal troops. Also responsible are the conservative and corporate media outlets, both locally and nationally, which have themselves whipped up right-wing hate by completely misrepresenting the nature of the peaceful protest occupation, and who are continuing to do so even now, claiming that this shooting proves the CHOP is descending into chaos.

The large majority of the social workers who worked at the SF Welfare Department at that time worked two hours a day and complained bitterly about being overworked.

    No one visited homes in the nasty neighborhoods except me. I was, I think the only one to make a home visit to Hunter's Point in those years. Eventually management and politicians caught on and abolished all the typists who typed up all those dictated narratives about home visits that had never occurred. Some social workers just spoke gibberish which got typed up and formed a part of the huge case files that no on ever read. I was also as far as I know the only social worker who ever pursued a welfare fraud case. The official departmental story was one percent of all cases had fraud. I did my own count. Fifty percent of my cases had fraud.

    This was in the late sixties. The Department was at least as leftist as anything today. We had an official member of the Communist Party of America on the floor above me. The party put him there to recruit. The girl who I replaced told me he wasn't left enough. They had contempt for real card carrying communists - too moderate. She quit to go work in a factory somewhere where she hoped to incite the workers to revolution. She was hard core.

    So when I hear proposals to swap out the cops with social workers, I chuckle.

    When the Left says that they want to replace cops with social workers, what they really mean is that they want cops to be replaced by the local chapter of Antifa, who will then be given free reign to terrorize anyone in the neighborhood.

    Think Mao’s Cultural Revolution…that’s what we are entering now folks.

    Hell, it started under Reagan. The dems want votes and the reps want cheap labor.
