Shameek Konar, the CEO of Pilot Flying J truck stops and gas stations, revealed during an April 13 hearing that his company was informed by Union Pacific Railways (UP) that the chain is "required to reduce shipments by 26 percent." Not long after, Pilot Flying J was reportedly told to reduce shipments by another 50 percent, or else.
Following through with this will massively reduce the availability of fuel across the United States, not to mention the even greater heights to which fuel prices will soar. Think total decimation of the national and even continental economy.
"Pilot Flying J supplies roughly 30% of diesel exhaust fuel (DEF) in the country," reports explain. (Related: Joe Biden is also destroying the consumer fuel economy by mandating high concentrations of corn ethanol in gasoline.)
"The trucking sector of our economy depends on DEF as all trucks manufactured after 2010 cannot operate without it, and the cut in deliveries will heavily impact the trucking industry."
Konar claims that no other companies besides his are being told by UP or any other railroad that they have to reduce shipments to such a degree, which makes this situation both peculiar and concerning.
Internet sleuths have made the (unconfirmed) suggestion that perhaps the Pilot Flying J and Union Pacific fiasco is intentional, and that both companies are colluding to disrupt the economy. We do not ascribe to this theory, but it is circulating across the 'net.
"Union Pacific's largest shareholders are Vanguard and BlackRock," reports indicate. "UP also recently reduced shipments of fertilizer to farmers."
This "crisis on the rails," as some are calling it, is impacting not just the trucking industry but farming. Many farmers are now paralyzed without the inputs they need, and some are having to cull their herds as a result.
The damage this is causing to supply chains and food reserves will be unprecedented once the whole thing finally unravels. We are watching that unraveling happen in real time, piece by piece, all at the same time.
The fact of the matter is that something is happening to systematically demolish the current system and order of things. Once complete, this country will be unrecognizable, to say the least.
"We are witnessing the controlled demolition of the U.S. economy," wrote a commenter at Need to Know news.
"As all of the chaos, destruction, and pain play out, let's be sure to note on whose watch this occurred. So when the perpetrators of this terror being waged against us offer us THEIR new system to ensure that this never happens again, reject every aspect of these psychopaths' proposed 'way forward.'"
Another wrote that this must be another "coincidence" just like the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), the Operation Warp Speed death shots, the destruction of food production plants and infant formula production, the war in Ukraine, and so many other aspects of the current world chaos.
