With the US logistical economy still overheating thanks to the trillions in fiscal stimulus, incoming cargo to the Port of Los Angeles is surging as businesses restock depleted inventories and retailers prepare for an early holiday season, the executive director for the nation’s busiest seaport told Reuters.

Workers unloaded 471,795 20-foot equivalent units (TEU) of imports in September, 17% more than the year earlier, just shy of the August record high, and marking the second month of robust import gains at the top gateway for US trade with China. That trend has carried into October, said Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, where there are now 16 vessels docked and 10 at anchor with cargo waiting to be unloaded.

I think it’s noteworthy when one looks at Friedman’s comments that Thomas Friedman, Adam Schiff, and Anderson Cooper, CNN are all Jewish and that gets into the bigger issue on this story.

As a matter of fact, when you start talking about democracy, any semblance of democracy in this country died on November 22nd, 1963 when the Meyer Lansky Ben-Gurion assassination plot against JFK proved to be successful. And of course, it is widely known through such publications as what Lawrence Gaynor has published on this, the UNS review and what Michael Collins Piper said about this in his book ‘Final Judgment’ that the Israeli Mossad and Ben-Gurion played a major role in the assassination of JFK in conjunction with James Jesus Angleton of the anti-Castro Cuban exiles, and that this is the actual center of this plot, which has led to the demise of the fortunes of the United States ever since. You’ll not hear Friedman, Schiff, or Anderson Cooper or CNN talking about any of this. Continue reading “US Deep State, Democrats, Cindy McCain setting up circumstances for civil war”

The goal of President Donald Trump’s executive memorandum on payroll tax deferral is to get more money into the pockets of Americans this year. But the move also means those same workers will get smaller paychecks for the first four months in 2021, according to new guidance on how to implement the deferral.

On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Treasury Department told employers that they would be liable to pay back what they defer from their employees’ paychecks under the executive memo, so workers won’t face a huge tax bill when they file their 2020 federal returns.
