Biden has made a habit of being incorrect about almost everything he touches, and his newest gaffe is no exception. Although President Joe Biden has announced that the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, he has done little to solve the supply chain issue. More than 100 ships are currently waiting to offload at the ports, finding the ships trapped in the snarl.
Los Angeles and Long Beach ports said that trucks transporting containers would be fined after nine days. Starting Nov. 1, carriers will be taxed $100 per day for each remaining container. The terminals are running out of room; thus, this will free up space for the containers moored on the ships.
Isn’t this merely penalizing the victims of a situation that was exacerbated in part by government mandates and other constraints, as well as other factors over which they had no control? The question is that how can finding them help to speed up the process? They still must decide on their cargo.
Joe Biden is more interested in getting rid of the image of ships waiting than in figuring out how to improve it. Not enough Afghan allies assisted us in our evacuation. To boost the numbers, grab random ’at risk’ Afghans and toss them aboard the planes. Thousands of illegal aliens were stranded in Del Rio beneath a bridge. Concentrate on a fabricated tale about the Border Patrol flogging them and then releasing them across the country. There is no longer an issue except for the tens of thousands who arrive due to the problems not being solved.
According to the reports, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida offered Florida ports as an option, but Biden is unwilling to accept it. Last week, Ryan Petersen claimed he rode a boat around the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and noticed that very little was being unloaded due to the container traffic backlog.
According to Petersen, President Joe Biden and California Governor Gavin Newsom should sign executive orders that override zoning laws and allow truck yards to store additional empty containers. Petersen compared the scenario to the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008, which triggered the recession. Joe Biden isn’t great at coming up with practical answers, and he’s going to make things worse.
