According to a Zerohedge piece on April 23, 2020, pork shortages could be a reality in the United States thanks to the economic disruption the Wuhan virus has caused.
In recent weeks, six major US meatpacking plants have closed operations because of the Wuhan virus outbreak. In other words, as Zerohedge notes, “15% of America’s hog-slaughtering capacity has been shifted offline.”
In addition, there is a risk that beef and poultry capacity could drop in the upcoming weeks according to a Bloomberg report.
Because of the Wuhan virus-induced closures, farmers have not been able to access meatpacking facilities and slaughterhouses. This has resulted in herd overcapacity and opens up the potential for mass euthanization of hogs.
Dennis Smith, a senior account executive at Archer Financial Services, believes that “meat shortages” will take place “two weeks from now in the retail outlets.” In essence, during the first week of May various pork products could potentially be no longer on the shelves.
Zerohedge noted the following:
Cold storage facilities only have a few weeks to cushion supply disruption of the latest plant closures. Bob Brown, an independent market consultant in Oklahoma, said cold storage supplies have a little more than a week’s worth of production – and wouldn’t be sufficient in satisfying demand.
In a previous piece, Zerohedge highlighted how Tyson Fresh Meats, the beef, and pork subsidiary of Tyson Foods, published a statement that revealed news of its major pork plant in Waterloo, Iowa ceasing operations indefinitely because of the Wuhan virus. Similarly, Hormel’s Rochelle Foods recently closed its plant. Virus outbreaks have also compelled JBS SA in Minnesota and Colorado and Smithfield Foods Inc. in South Dakota to close facilities.
On the other hand, a number of meatpacking plants have re-opened.
“It means the loss of a vital market outlet for farmers and further contributes to the disruption of the nation’s pork supply,” Steve Stouffer, head of Tyson Fresh Meats, declared.
If more plants continue closing, supply chains will get rocked and cause “weird dislocations for prices — finished products are surging, while farmers are getting paid much less for animals,” Bloomberg highlighted.
Food shortages could become a reality in America, which is often a harbinger for social unrest.
U.S. policymakers will need to craft policies to re-open their economies lest they want social upheavals to become the norm throughout 2020.
The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now
Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.
She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.
Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.
Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.
However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.
She told BLP:
Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.
Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive. It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.
Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country! Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.
Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.
This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.
Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.
Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.
In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.
Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.
This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.
The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
