"It's Like a Soviet Store During 1981:" As America Confronts the Reality of Empty Shelves, Team Biden -- Including the National Media -- Assures Them the Empty Shelves Are All a Right-Wing Hallucination

It takes a British tabloid to accurately report on the shortages in the US, because the US media is criminal.


'It's like a Soviet store during 1981': Empty shelves appear at grocery stores across US as supply chain crisis and COVID convene to make basics like milk, bread, meat, canned soups and cleaning products hard to find

They brought evidence: Pictures.

This started an #BareShelvesBiden meme:

My own shelves are bare.

That's not because of Brandon.

It's a safety thing.

Jim Geraghty noted that while Brandon was bragging about supposedly fixing the supply chain problems, the shelves are understocked or even bare.

The national media is suppressing this fact by not reporting on it -- part of their secret agreement with the Brandon Administration to put a positive spin on economic news or, if that is impossible, suppress the news altogether.

But he notes that the local news frequently features bare-shelves stories.

All the national news broadcasts have to do to is reach out to their local affiliates and they'd have plenty of video and reportage to do bare-shelve stories -- but they don't want to.

The official word is that The Shelves Are Full and they are good little repeaters of Official State Propaganda.

Empty Shelves Disprove Biden's Supply-Chain Boasts https://t.co/9fxUQGQOww

A bit before Christmas, President Biden boasted that he had averted the supply-chain crisis: "The much-predicted crisis didn't occur. Packages are moving. Gifts are being delivered. Shelves are not empty."https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

Back on December 22, White House chief of staff Ron Klain shared a New York Times article and declared that supply-chain problems were "an over-hyped narrative."https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

And yet, you may have also noticed that your local store shelves still aren't restocked to their usual levels, or you may well be finding empty shelves.https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

You know where you'll find a lot of coverage of empty shelves and supply chain problems? Local TV news affiliates.https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE pic.twitter.com/vlfXRa3dgS

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

And it's not just one region beset by particular labor shortages or bad weather -- Richmond, Atlanta, Portland, Daytona Beach, Houston, Dallas, Honolulu, Cape Cod...https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

And it's not just groceries. Auto parts, housing supplies, cold medicines...https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE pic.twitter.com/dejRuMNeOc

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

No doubt, bad weather can slow shipments and block roads, exacerbating the supply-chain crisis. But in some places, there's something of a vicious cycle, in that supply-chain problems are exacerbating the ability to respond to bad weather.https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE pic.twitter.com/xoiVyshASj

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

When you add up all of these reports, it seems like a lot of genuine and glaring problems for the White House chief of staff to dismiss as just "an overhyped narrative"!https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

You can find Biden defenders who insisting the Twitter hashtag "#BareShelvesBiden" is "artificially amplified by far-right users to manipulate the trending section." Fine, maybe they are, but consumers and local news aren't _hallucinating_ empty shelves.https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

Businesses aren't _imagining_ this inability to get the supplies and parts they need. Supply chain complaints are not a national mass hysteria driven by a hashtag.https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

The Biden team's reflex is that reports of problems are just right-wing propaganda. As with the border, inflation, Afghanistan, Covid-19, and the shortage of tests, we have to waste time convincing the Biden administration that the country's problems are actually real problems.

-- Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty) January 11, 2022

Or perhaps someone like Klain will tell us to be appreciative because we have "high class problems."https://t.co/StBaYkGVsE pic.twitter.com/zir8eLn4OA

37 The shelves around here don't look like that but the fronting is really shallow; that is, they shelves look reasonably full but that's made up of a very thin front layer of products, and fewer selections.

But for decades, the left has been humiliated and embarassed by the wealth of options, selection, and quality we have in even the smallest stores in the USA. The way their Euro friends would come over and gush at the 17 types of toothpaste and 18 types of shaving cream in the US made them feel low and sad.

This is their dream scenario: Now we're just like Soviet Russia and French stores!

They figure people never leave their homes to see the stores (b/c of all the store pick ups and Amazon orders), so they can try to make a narrative of "everything's fine - this is a lie" out of "thin social media air"...especially with the tech people as part of the Uniparty media/political complex...

80 I'm a self-starter, so here's Turkey economic news -

Under pressure from Erdogan and despite high inflation, the central bank has slashed interest rates by 500 basis points since September, triggering a currency crisis that saw the lira plunge last month to 18.4 to the dollar, its weakest level ever.

Inflation has jumped to a 19-year high of 36%, seriously eroding earnings, especially of working and lower middle class Turks who form the electoral base of the Islamist-rooted AKP.

The government has introduced fiscal measures to ease the currency volatility, but the lira is still 46% weaker than a year ago and Erdogan, who wants to boost exports and credit, has refused to change course despite growing public discontent.


Seems like they are a few months ahead of us.

Sweden announced Wednesday it had earmarked some 6 billion kronor ($661 million) for a temporary scheme to help the most affected households across the Scandinavian country to cope with high electricity bills this winter.

Households consuming more than 2,000 kilowatt hours per month can get compensation worth about 2,000 kronor ($220) per month for the three months December-February. Some 1.8 million households are affected, the government said.

The grocery stores are putting boxes where they don't belong to make the shelves not appear empty.

There are a lot of tricks. You stock the shelves with stuff you usually keep in back for replacement, so the shelves appear full but its really 8 rows of the same product. You face everything so its a thin row up front of product with almost nothing actually on the shelf.

And yeah, you move product around so it looks full up front where people first see, from wherever in the store you need.

But there's a lot of stuff just not there that used to be always available.

183 Did my weekly shopping this morning at our local Shoprite here in central Jersey. Most shelves are fully stocked. Meat, (ground beef, pork chops, etc) counters are fully stocked as is the chicken area. Same with dairy products. Got everything I needed. The only exception I could find is cat food. Some kinds are either low not there. Bread, rolls, etc, fill the shelves. Was able to buy two loaves and a package of burger rolls. Fully stocked as usual. ShopRite is part of a large co-op in NJ so that might be the secret, plus, NJ is a large transportation and distribution hub, with huge warehouses and distribution centers alongside the NJ Turnpike (part of I95) down around the South Brunswick and Hightstown area. So, for the time being, life is fairly normal here as far as grocery shopping is concerned. Three Stop and Shop supermarkets in town and three ShopRites within 15 minutes of each other, and people I have spoken to haven't noticed any issues at any of those. Maybe Fen can chime in on the ShopRite near her area.

Remember the story of young Boris Yeltsin, on some tour around Houston (he may have been visiting the space center) in the '80s?

He went into a grocery store and was gobsmacked. Supposedly he first thought it was some sort of trick and they were faking it. So they took him to a random one.

They said he broke down and cried. Through an interpreter, he started asking questions of random shoppers about what they were buying, what they were going to do with it, etc.

The irony here is just at Jedi Master levels.

276 Reagan had the best joke about this:

A Soviet man finally saved up enough money to buy a car. So, he goes to the state dealer, orders the car, pays for it in advance. The dealer says "OK, come pick it up in 6 years". The buyer didn't skip a beat, he asked "Morning or afternoon?". The dealer said "What difference does it make? It's 6 years...". The man responded "Well, the plumber is coming in the morning."

I have to make food for the homeless shelter next week and already told my spouse that we need to shop Friday (for a Sunday cook) b/c I need to know that I can make what I planned or the backup plans for Sun/Mon.

300 Is there any reasonably reliable metric, based on surveys and actual data, of grocery store inventory adequacy, or condition +/- with respect to average? Not aware of one. There a zillion econometric data series, but possibly not one for this. Just curious. Don't know if we have any econometrics geeks or analysts out there (there used to be one, but she long since hasn't commented here).

Anecdata - just spot "empty shelves" sightings here in SoCal, the last few months, nothing general or all that noticeable. It must vary tremendously by location. That DC store looks like none I've personally seen all the way back to March 2020, unless one is talking about t.p. etc in the first idiotic months.

302 Sure, maybe you get shoes too big for you. You can trade them for a sweater or shoes that fit from someone else.

They had food rationing in Russia in 1991. Since it was Russia, that included a vodka ration. Someone I know was working in a Russian business enterprise then, and one of the new workers said that she wouldn't take the vodka ration, because she didn't drink vodka.

306 I was in Yugoslavia in 1980 when Tito died. The communist economy was in tatters. I'll never forget going to a "grocery store". There was literally nothing on the shelves save for some local peaches and a small meat supply, also local. Nothing processed could be had. No sugar, no flour and especially no cooking oil.

When I flew home I kissed the ground and from then on was quite fearful of communism and what it does to an economy. Looks like it finally came here. So sad. So sad.

334 Remember the Loudon County school rapist? When his victim's father complained to the school board (after they protected the criminal rapist), the board had him arrested and labeled a terrorist. The District Attorney, a Soros electee, personally prosecuted the FATHER. The event became "Exhibit A" for the DOJ attack on parents.

Now we find out there was a previously unknown thrid victim. They hid that fact until now. And, we find out his psych eval was the "worst" the judge had ever seen. Loudon County narrowly averted true tragedy in this case.

But Loudoun County Schools and the head administrator did every single thing they could to help this violent criminal.

335 One shelf that is bare: lots and lots of major appliance pipelines. Sort of in that market lately, and it's pretty bad. Not even any guesstimates on when certain lines will be shipping again. In making my rounds, made sure to ask the oldest salesperson I dealt with if he'd ever seen anything like this, he laughed and said "no, of course not!".

Others here seem to have a handle on other things, like the chip shortage which affects vehicles and other durable goods production. And then there's labor.

378 Was in Soviet stores just prior to 1981, it wasn't so much that the shelves were empty, there weren't just that many shelves, the selection was always/normally skimpy. Made a point of going into every kind of store I came across.

One time jumped in a line that turned out to be for American citrus, felt a bit guilty but not that much, so bought a bag-full of oranges for the other yanks in the program.

Hard currency stores ("beriozka", or little birch tree) of course had full shelves, but more like a duty-free shop, not staples. Silver fox fur hats were gorgeous but pricey, I opted to get a muskrat one at the big department store instead.

386 I love how they say it's an issue of demand, like all of a sudden there's a run on pretzels, hot mustard and black olives. ZOMG! NEW RECIPE TO DIE FOR!!!

Being in the SF Bay Area, I'd imagine we've got it better than most, and it's still whacky. I never recall going to a market and coming up short 2-5 items. It's looking almost like it did during the original lockdown, but the stores have gotten much better at facing. There's still gaping holes on many shelves. I'm lucky that my local has its own bakery and there's many local businesses. Add to that the CA pork mandate, and suddenly there's like 3 brands of bacon, and one of them maple flavored bacon (yech). Or hey! Plant bacon! Not vegetable, but fucking "plant". Or as we call them, weeds. Somebody needs to suffer for this, and it's not me.

Vaxxed, who still get the bug, but are not tested go around infecting other people - more likely jabbed coworkers or partygoers like themselves. Ergo- more vaxxed in hospitals.

Lets pretend that we can focus all of our contempt and blame on one drooling retard who doesn't even know what day of the week it is.

Do we seriously believe that by swapping out porridge brain for some other puppet that things will get better? Are we all supposed to ignore the 40% increase in the money supply that is backing even less than before the dump? Are we supposed to just think that the myriad of regulations, medical apartheid, No Jab No Job, the complete inability of schools to generate anyone with marketable skills, the profoundly strong sense of entitlement and laziness, the millions of upon millions of third worlders with their crime, filth, marxist ideology, laziness, and diseases are all going to just go away?

You could say they did it for "social distancing", but they didn't space or de-aisle the rest of the store...they just didn't want to have gaps in produce areas they couldn't gets stock in for, so now they just have fewer aisles and will leave certain produce in boxes at the front for customers to grab out of if they actually get normal stocking for the week...

It's been nearly two years now and my confidence in publicly funded science is completely destroyed. I don't believe anyone reasonably intelligent can read the COVID literature and come out the other side without concluding that universities and governments cannot tell the difference between science and scientism.

Our society is completely in the grip of people who have effectively evolved under selection pressure to strongly resemble scientists without actually being scientists.

I noticed it a couple of days ago during my recent visit.

It's actually worse, though.
There were 6 or 7 end caps all faced with Progresso soup and Tide detergent.
Never seen anything like this in my *mumbly mumbly* years.

It's been nearly two years now and my confidence in publicly funded science is completely destroyed. I don't believe anyone reasonably intelligent can read the COVID literature and come out the other side without concluding that universities and governments cannot tell the difference between science and scientism.

Our society is completely in the grip of people who have effectively evolved under selection pressure to strongly resemble scientists without actually being scientists.

525 I placed a large appliance order with a regional appliance retailer of good repute over a month ago.
Ordered, bought and paid for in order to lock in 2021 pricing.

Now I find out that three quarters of the order are 4 months out, some 6 months and freezers are simply unavailable until they don't know when.

I don't need them yet, but my concern is the financial viability of the retailer. What happens when the inputs skyrocket and the producers can't deliver at the prices promised? Who goes down? The retailer or the producer?

With all the home builders vying for product, seems the one time customer is last to get product, if ever.

526 I went to the store Sunday. No chicken, hardly any beef. No pasta. I bought the last 5lb. bag of potatoes, and they had two left of the 10lb. bags. Soup was scarce. The produce dept. had either empty shelves or the vegetables looked old and limp. T/P and paper towels look like they are low in inventory again. Very bleak.

When my dishwasher broke after Thanksgiving, I only wanted to buy what was in stock at the store deliverable the next week...I didn't have many options, but lucked into a Bosch...and have it. Full price purchase, but I haven't wanted to see if 2022 already brought a price increase. Before Covid, I'd have shopped sales or any discounts. Now, if I need something important, I just try to pay the original retail price.

I was going to wait until spring to replace my appliances (all are 20+ years old and dying), but now that I've located in stock, I'm going to move. I really don't want to spend almost $6k, but it's not going to improve price-wise, and I might not even see any in a few months. The cooktop - had I replaced it when I first moved in almost 2 years ago would be 1/3 less. It's gone from $1k and change to 1600ish. On sale at the moment - and IN STOCK! My GE has one dead burner control, and another about to go out - they don't make replacement parts (fuck you GE). Same w/ovens.

And for some reason I have yet to figure out - real estate is fucking nuts right now in the SF bay area. So nuts, that my business shooting virtual tours is super-slow, because it's such a seller's market. Home is sold with multiples in 48 hours. New homes going in like mad. Who? Seriously, WHY?!?

And those umbrella like clothes lines. I'm afraid to put in my shopping cart for fear all those are on back order too.

My 1 and a half year old washer went down and they have nothing in stock and it needs a motherboard. Ha! I'm going insane with rage.

598 Dreak,

Have you tried Speed Queen? Made in America and guaranteed. My sister bought one and it washes cleaner and faster than the front loader. They were a piece of shit.

599 Did I ever tell you O's OSHA Labor people have been known to give divine guidance to the House S&H committees? (Help us all.) Anyway, the N95 thing could be a trap though it would also a huge money maker for some. (Another follow-the-money item for sure.)

N95s used in the workplace means there's specific guidance and enforcement standards that must be followed. (Example: Understanding compliance with osha's respiratory protection standard during the Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.)

For the general public, who will be taking the liability for all of the improperly used N95s? (And they will be!) What about usage by children? How about distribution being undertaken by people who've f'd up chicken getting into grocery stores?

Nah, another game in the making; just tossing good money over bad, IMO.

600 Also, a lot of the stupid pasta making machines are waaaay overpriced for what they are.

603 I have been driving through western PA a bunch lately. And before that, down 81S from the NY border to Adams Co, PA pretty regular for about three months. I noticed that the big trucks seemed to be driving a bit slower. As in, around 65mph, instead of the 75-80mph I've come to be terrified of while on the highway. You see, I don't embrace that 70mph speed limit so much - seems like you have next to no reaction time at that speed. ANywho - I just can't help but notice how much more moderately these big trucks are driving. I mean, I'm passing these bastards at 65mph in a 70mph zone on a flat road for fucks sake! Lots and lots of them. For at least the last six months, and it seems even more so for the past month. Truth.

Buy a new, good quality, toilet plunger.

Fill your bathtub (or kitchen sink) with water. Put the appropriate amount of laundry soap in, put your sorted laundry in, let soak for 15 minutes. Then plunge it moderately for 8-10 minutes, let soak for a bit, plunge again for a couple of minutes. Empty water. Fill with clear water, soak, plunge, soak, empty. Fill once more, soak - swish, drain. Wring, then dry. You will work out your rage, and have very clean clothes. But the wringing will fuck up your hands. There is a way to wring using dry towels. Yes, I know all the tricks.
