Hyper-Inflation Begins: Gasoline Hits $8.49 p/Gal in California; FOOD SHORTAGES in Texas
Gasoline in California has hit record high prices as the illegitimate Biden regime, and the corrupt Democrat-controlled Congress, spend the nation into oblivion. Worse, food shortages are striking with a vengeance all over the nation as video from a Texas Walmart proves below.
Showing more sensational photographs and offering exaggerations will only hurt one's credibility in the end.
Getting people worried about 8 dollars a gallon will end up in them being relieved that the price is "only" 4 dollars, and have them lose sight of the fact that this is a serious defeat.
Hegelian dialectic at work.
We still got food, but yes, there is an obvious problem.
When was the price this high?
What town in California?
I felt a little like the secret leader of the biggest Trotskyite network in the 1930s USSR, suddenly arrested in the middle of the night in an NKVD raid and thrown into a dank interrogation cell, where I desperately wondered “Who had betrayed me?!” But then I eventually discovered that 50,000 other people had been rounded up that same night, mostly for complaining that the bread they recently bought had been stale…and I remembered complaining about stale bread to someone the previous week…
As it happens, Google’s sudden total removal of all those websites including our own turned out to be temporary, and the search results were soon returned to what they had been the day before, with our pages still merely de-ranked and almost impossible to find rather than entirely eliminated. But the incident highlighted the absurd political and media power now allowed to a private company and its top executives.
Google’s share of the search engine market is nearly 90%, both in the US and worldwide, and Facebook has almost an equally strong monopoly in social networking.

Do you need your headgear flushed out or are you working with the Dark Side to divide us and facilitate a civil war?
Secondarily was the imposition of central banking upon a largely conservative nation (a.k.a. the so-called "Greatest Generation"). If basically everyone has a price (i.e. can be bought) then a few demoniclally infected , influenced or posessed international bankers with the power to counterfeit a near infinite supply of the world's reserve currency can meet that price... and advance their dark agenda (i.e. Satanic technocratic "New World Order").
There us plenty of blame to go around and the demise of Western Civilization has been orchestrated since long before the Biden voters were born.
Look, this was the iniquity of your sister

of food, and abundance of idleness;
The day will come when technology will surpass
understanding and we will have a population of idiots.
I'm guessing that happened sometime in the mid nineties.
Fuel when I was out there two years ago was $4.20 for regular. The highest I saw was in Salinas at $4.69 for regular. It's pretty crazy to see prices that high, but a bit of context is helpful. If fuel in Monterey in $5 at its highest, then it stands to reason that such an out of the way place would be higher.
Not uncommon to see gaps. I talk with store employees often. I hear regularly "we order but we don't know what will come".
The thing my Aunt (God rest her soul) always told me to watch was canned meat. A few years ago (6-7) it was stocked heavy. Plenty of choices and everything was 1# cans. Then it went to 12oz. Then 10 1/2oz. Now canned chicken isn't on the shelf. Hash has been gone for over a year. 1lb canned ham used to be stocked thick & deep. Now 1 case at a time if they can get it. Spam (yes I watch that too), several varieties. Now lucky to see it on the shelf. Snack & lunch fish like smoked oysters and kippered fish don't exist. Haven't seen snack lunch pies for over 6mo. of any variety.
Packaged cheese grated/sliced has BIG empty spots often.
Produce is stocked low with fillers. Shouldn't be that way in summer. Bottled water is empty most of the time. Expensive brands are still there cheaper and store brand has been gone for a while. Areas of the frozen food and processed are showing shortages.
Come the start of fall case good sales are normal. Not this year!
A regular can of peaches was $1 a can last year. This year sale price $3/5! Regular $2.29. A loaf of store brand bread was $.79 regular sale price. Now $1.79 if there's any left in stock! It's empty most of the time. Tells me people are eating more sandwiches.
Just put in an order for socks from Cabela's. It took over 2 weeks to ship! (Btw the regular grey/green Cabela's wool blend socks last for almost ever! Bought 8 pair 8-9 years ago for hubby. They are his favorite. He rotates mostly just those. In that time I hardly see the wear. So I ordered 20 more. Should last almost the rest of his life. But, I digress)
Our company truck is in the shop for minor repairs. They said it'll be 3-4 weeks for parts to come in. Son-in-law order tires for work truck. Took almost a month to get them.
What I'm saying is the fall of our country is fast progressing.
When Trump took office one of the first things he said was "It's worse than I imagined".
After 4 years of doing his best with great resistance, de stopped the decline. He showed what was possible by putting our own interests first. It took 5mins & 17 EOs one the first day to turn that around. Trump was a bump in the road for their plan.
Those that think we'll turn this back around are sorely mistaken. "I remember when" is going to be a new montra. The slide will speed up. The fight for daily life will take your eyes & mind away from the daily death toll. Those dying from the shot will blend in with those dying from starvation and exposure.
What I write sound bleek. Argue if you must. It's what I see.
So this tells me to definitely not cut the price ! haha!
Now that the nonsense is picking up steam, we have to re-evaluate. We have bagging and even some milling capability, and so we may begin to retail some, especially if people need it locally. Reports like yours help a lot.
Nobody in Texas is wearing winter coats atm. 90+ degrees F in Austin yesterday.
This is all to attempt to appear "normal" when it comes to supply. Buyers do it all the time - they are just needing to go to much greater lengths this time. The most prestigious stores like Kroger, Kohl's, Meier, etc. will eat up limited supplies out from under less well-heeled buyers and try their best to make it appear that everything is OK with "them". All the old people would remain relieved that "their store" still has the bananas they crave, and they're "fresher than fresh".
This artificial and aggressive purchasing agent-forced appearance of normalcy would explain most of the comments you see on various forums and the like, "Gee, I just went to _______ and the shelves were full !".
By contrast, WalMart doesn't play the "throw cash at suppliers for our reputation's sake" game, and should be expected to be among the first big retailers to reveal empty shelves. And here we are. So it is wise to take them as a bellwether of wider shortages to come. At some point expanding sources for disappearing goods at higher costs doesn't work any more for ANY buyers.
There are systemic monetary, production & processing, personnel, physical resource, training, logistical, government, climate, and political headwinds that are all coinciding presently to disrupt production and distribution of goods. At some point the production dwindles to a critical level where it becomes self-reinforcing, and a downward spiral can ensue.
Honestly, however, the rampant creation of money out of thin air, and peoples' love for that, is the root cause of most of the other constraints listed above. The downward spiral is actually reflected in hyperinflation, and its tentacles reach into the rest of the system.
Take Hal's article to heart.
This would explain most of the
Here in Arkansas, the gas is up to $2.63 for regular and over $3.50 for premium (which my car has to have.) Went into a Dollar Tree today just to look and it looked like the final day of a 'going out of business' sale!
this is bullshit. what kind of bullshit is hal?
Tons of things they just can't get anymore.
Cheese is always low. Beef is poor quality tough like it's old milk cow and expensive. Hamburger was $.99 a pound now sale is $2.99 regular $4.99.
Bread has went up over $1 a loaf for store brand from $.79 a loaf to sale price $1.79
I clobber the sales!
Ever isle I walk down has big gaps and no back stock.
Don't tend to medical needs
No grain/corn to fatten them up.
No mineral supplements
Send to slaughter.
Should be cheaper per pound.
The cheap reg gas at WM was 2.74 today (10-8-2021).
