Right now my heads in a whirl of all the possibilities related to this because each of those articles in the OP are BS 3 different ways.
1. CBS blames Trump for the economy because of the flu, everyone's out of work and no money to buy food (food scarcity).......which doesn't make alot of sense to me since in June (date of article) everyone that was laid off got their unemployment + $600 per week???? and anyone that did work were getting bonus's for coming to work??? EXCUSE ME, but that means they had alot more money than usual to pay their bills & buy their food. Then of course they also received the stimulus payment. This has never made any sense to me, how everyone was making more money than pre-covid, but can't afford their bills & food, so if anyone can explain this, please let me know.
2. Bloomberg blames Covid. Everyone is sick & dying and not able to work the food production line.
3. NPR, while mentioning global warming, they do say there is plenty of food and don't understand the panic for shortages.....then drops a crumb of truth. "So we wrote this paper, 'Debunking the New Normal,' and it was very unpopular," he recalls. "In fact, we weren't able to publish it!"
Think about this for a moment....... the democrats (the left) thrive on chaos and disruption. They think they have a better chance at taking power if people are confused and afraid. So it’s pretty easy to create panic simply by having MSM beat the drum continuously proclaiming there is a food shortage (or TP shortage!). There doesn’t actually have to be a food shortage. They just have to report there is a food shortage. People immediately panic and flock to the stores and strip the shelves bare. Bare shelves feed into the narrative and increase the panic. And the chaos is “on”. Eventually the system compensates but for a month or two everyone is looking, buying, and hoarding. And the dems have achieved their goals just by having a few news outlets report a bogus story. People are sheep and easily manipulated.
Now I’m not saying there were not any supply problems. But it seems to me that things got way overblown way too fast. JMHO
They need this chaos to continue through November. I would look for them to crank it up over the next few months.

I hope the bear that raided my orchard stays around until the 1st, I've got an empty freezer and bear tag. Doe tags for deer season. Cool weather comes trout will be on the menu.
My garden is looking good and bad. But putting in fall transplants/seeds this week.
I listen to Rush Limbaugh quite often. I think he hits the nail on the head when he says...the media elite and the dems believe the world revolves around Twitter. They think because something is hot or trending on twitter, it must be on the minds of every American. It's not.
I didn't listen to the democratic convention but my news feeds had portions of the speeches all week. I watched some of the republican convention in between coats of lacquer last night and am catching the highlights this morning.
The difference between them is literally like night and day.
What I find astonishing is that...not one single democrat has come out to admonish the riots and destruction...NOT ONE.
IMO, even the sane democrats living in these mini-Beiruts have had enough of this crap.
On a side note....I don't remember where I read it but, next time you are talking with someone who is leaning towards Biden ask them this:
Without mentioning Trump's name, why are you voting for Biden. The answers should be interesting.
