    Default Shortages Happening

    Out of curiosity, I typed in "shortage" on Google News, just to see what came up.
    OMG - there are so many MSM articles now about shortages all over the world.
    Even though I limited it to only articles in the past 24 hours, pages and pages of results came up!

    Here's a few headline examples from page 1 alone:
    • Bad news, car buyers: Chip shortage, supply chain woes are worse than we thought
    • Boris Johnson's Brexit choices are making Britain's fuel and food shortages worse
    • Why Is Everyone Talking About a Global Power Shortage? (bloomberg)
    • The day care shortage and the worker shortage
    • Red Cross experiencing blood shortage
    • Nationwide alcohol shortage impacts local business
    • CO2 shortage could force farmers to cull own pigs

    Anyway, this thread can be about shortages that we are reading about, noticing ourselves, wondering why they are happening, and ways to best prepare.

    For whatever reasons, seems they are certainly putting the squeeze on!

    Shortage on everything, the Deposit Protection Agency in Thailand announced this year the deposit protection for customers is much lower now (capped to 1 million thai baht), more than 250 banks closed their branches since the start of covaids plandemix.
    The great adoption of crypto currency in Thailand, there is no interest to the average depositor to keep their money in the bank, it worth more buying Gold which is very common over here, or buying crypto currency as seem many Thai people now is jumping in this new trend.

    Shortage on fiat, death of banks on the horizon!!!

    source: https://www.archyde.com/bank-of-thai...n-still-smile/

    There is many sources about it, the above is a kind of neutral one, Thai media stinks they usually has a one-way to explain things and not open to an alternative point of view.

    China is hard hit by the rising price of coal. The world factory may reduce the production of goods. Will this trigger rapid inflation worldwide?



    https://edition.cnn.com/2021/09/28/e...hnk/index.html

    China's power shortages threaten more supply chain chaos and may hit GDP
    Hong Kong (CNN Business)A growing power supply crunch in China is triggering blackouts for households and forcing factories to cut production, threatening to slow the country's vast economy and place even more strain on global supply chains.

    Companies in the country's industrial heartlands have been told to limit their energy consumption in order to reduce demand for power, state media has reported. And supply has been cut to some homes, reportedly even trapping people in elevators.


    This shortage of electricity in China is likely to worsen, from a company website:

    https://www.echemi.com/cms/357768.html
    The power outages in various provinces across the country are far more severe than imagined! Electricity is tight, power curtailment will continue, production capacity is limited, and raw material prices continue to skyrocket!

    Shaanxi: Electricity rationing until the end of the year.
    Ningxia: High-energy-consuming enterprises stop production for one month.
    Sichuan: Suspend non-essential production, lighting, and office loads.
    Henan: Some processing enterprises have limited power for more than three weeks. Chongqing: Some factories halted power production in early August, and the deadline is yet to be determined.
    Guangdong: "Two stops and five stops" is not enough. There is a direct power outage for 4 days.
    Shandong: Energy consumption dual control, power shortage for 9 hours a day.
    Jiangsu: Forced to take a "holiday" for 20 days, with a power outage until October 8.
    Zhejiang: Power outages for 20-30 days in the fourth quarter.
    Yunnan: It is required to strengthen production control in key industries.
    Qinghai: Received the national power rationing warning notice.
    Xinjiang: Strictly control production capacity.
    Guangxi: The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a power saving notice.
    Inner Mongolia: No longer approve new polyvinyl chloride (PVC) projects.
    Anhui: There is a gap of 2.5 million kilowatts of electricity.

    A small window was broken in my garage. I went to the local glass company in town to have a piece of glass cut so I could replace it. He told me they are literally running out of glass due to the glass shortage. They are resorting to pulling glass out of picture frames to do repairs. I asked him what the problem was with the supply line and he said it must be about trade wars with China, as all US glass is made in China?

    He also told me there had been roofing and wood shortages earlier this year.

    I was also told their is a problem with certain types of paint.

    At the grocery store they had sign up a while ago about the national shortage of coins????

    My intuitive feeling is that we are seeing the beginnings of many, many shortages and these shortages are planned.

    I have never been a very good or efficient prepper, and have sometimes felt like a fool for doing it, but I am beginning to feel like it was the best decision.

    Am getting extra food for my dogs as well.

    I've waited over 3 months for a tiny replacement part for a dishwasher to be shipped from Germany, constantly being delayed only to be told now that they're no longer stocking it.

    I think we're in a choreographed movie and shortages are a part of the script. They've been previewed in advance, just like internet outages etc.

    Are we being taught a lesson about Globalisation or Consumption? Does this prefigure a reimagining of the global economy? Are we to learn to live with less and develop workarounds and substitutions?

    Food security may come into play. Particularly if you live in a highly populated island that doesn't grow enough food to support its populace...

    I absolutely believe this is choreographed. This is all a part of the psy-op. This is to induce fear and confusion which will promote more submission and reliance on the "authorities". The fact that the authorities are bat shiiit crazy makes no difference. Each country is being manipulated. We are all living in crazy town.

    In spain food is fine, but gas is gonna hit 1'50€ soon , and electricity is breaking records by the day, almost at 200€/Mwh. average.

    Yesterday night most of my town's street lights were off, wonder if it was because of it.

    MSM is not reporting on this crisis.

    I think lots of this is the media inflating first world problems designed to further put stress into the minds people…the bill of materials in daily life is massive so they can always say something is missing.

    In the UK, I filled my car up with diesel while the headlines on the newspaper stand were ‘Key workers should fuel first’ and the staff inside were complaining that there was no breakdown in the fuel chain and they were sick of the very newspapers they were selling.

    Are we being taught a lesson about Globalisation or Consumption? Does this prefigure a reimagining of the global economy? Are we to learn to live with less and develop workarounds and substitutions?

    Food security may come into play. Particularly if you live in a highly populated island that doesn't grow enough food to support its populace...
    Seems like one the scenarios narratives (Rockefeller - smart scramble) taking place.

    I think lots of this is the media inflating first world problems designed to further put stress into the minds people…the bill of materials in daily life is massive so they can always say something is missing.

    In the UK, I filled my car up with diesel while the headlines on the newspaper stand were ‘Key workers should fuel first’ and the staff inside were complaining that there was no breakdown in the fuel chain and they were sick of the very newspapers they were selling.

    You were lucky Jim.

    I got up at 05:30 this morning from a hotel in London to get an early start. There was 20 miles range in the car I had. The SEVENTH garage I went to had fuel which I queued over 30 minutes for.. Lost over an hour in that endeavour.

    Later in the day, in a second car I had to visit 3 different motorway service stations before I found one with fuel. It had 160 miles of range when I collected it, 32 miles left when I found fuel. That was near Leeds.

    Tomorrow I have three cars to move all up in Scotland, I am hoping it is a little better there. Otherwise I'll end up in some other kind of lockdown that wasn't enforced.

    I also think this is choreographed, would love to speak with transport depot managers to get their responses. I notice there are less trucks on the road. I don't buy that it is ALL down to a shortage of drivers.

    Second hand car market is super busy, because there is a shortage of new cars.

    The plan may be an organised global collapse so they can offer their solution, and when 25% of the world's population is already dead and the rest living day to day of course they/we will all grasp at that solution with eager hands - only to discover it was a giant trap all along.

    Around here car lots are begging for trucks, older trucks and will pay a fortune to get them.

    That gives a different perspective! Covid Track and Trace pings + Brexit overseas labour supply + media shortages = your personal chaos. I wonder which one of these factors is the driving force?

    Add to that a young potential native workforce who want 'fun' jobs and don't want to do anything taxing - in Britain, anyway. From the time I spent in Italy I noticed a young population who were happy to roll their sleeves up and do hard work.

    That's why we now have a heavy reliance on EU workers, because they want to work. I presently work with 3 people from an EU country and their rate of work is phenomenal. In the past year and a half that I've had to do a job with hard physical work I've seen about 3 young Britons join the shift and they have all quit after a couple of weeks.

    I’ve just had a random email from United Utilities Water, alerting me that the water from our local supply (Lake District) has gone down by 2.5% in a week (which they then state isn’t normal)

    ...It’s not stopped raining the last few weeks and the last few days we’ve had torrential rain, so I’m not sure where it’s gone?!

    It says the reservoirs are only at 34% full levels when they should be at least 70%.

    Genuine or manufactured? No idea but it’s another ‘shortage’ to add to the ever expanding list!

    *Update
    I’ve just checked where my water supply comes from and it actually comes from Lake Vyrnwy in Wales. So this is clearly a generic email being sent out.

    I wonder how much United Utilities are being paid for that mail shot 🤨
