  1. A far more truthful headline:

    “Government is Driving Americans From Their Jobs at Record Rates”

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/americans-are-quitting-jobs-at-record-rates-labor-department_4045744.html

    “A record number of U.S. workers voluntarily quit their jobs in August, led by bar and restaurant employees as well as retail staff, according to figures released Tuesday by the Department of Labor.

    The Labor Department’s monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, known as the JOLTS report, showed that 4.3 million left their jobs. The quits rose to 2.9 percent, which is an increase of 242,000 from the previous month, and represents the highest figure in data that goes back to December 2000.”

  2. Biden actually causes the supply chain disruption, and then expects others to fix it for him.

    As Walmart, FedEx and UPS fire more workers for refusing to get the experimental injections, how do they intend to increase output?

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/supply-chain-disruptions-force-white-house-to-ask-walmart-ups-fedex-to-increase-output_4047115.html

    “Carriers of goods including Walmart, UPS, and FedEx are moving to work more shifts—including 24 hours per day, seven days per week—to address global supply disruptions that have contributed to a surge in inflation, the White House said Wednesday.

    The update was announced ahead of President Joe Biden’s meeting with the heads of Walmart, FedEx, and UPS to address the supply chain bottlenecks before the Christmas season.

    According to a fact sheet released by the administration, Walmart said it would “increase its use of night-time hours significantly and projects they could increase throughput by as much as 50 percent over the next several weeks.”

    Meanwhile, UPS said it would commit to use 24/7 operations “and enhanced data sharing with the ports” to move more containers out of ports, said the White House.

    And FedEx, the fact sheet said, will “work to combine an increase in nighttime hours with changes to trucking and rail use to increase the volume of containers it will move from the ports.”

    UPS and FedEx combined shipped approximately 40 percent of U.S. packages by volume in 2020, the White House said. A White House official told news outlets on Wednesday that FedEx, UPS, and Walmart will move toward a 24/7 working schedule.”

    “‘Pretty alarming’: Biden administration ignored Pentagon concerns with Chinese drone purchase

    Republicans say drone purchases is evidence that president is weak on China”

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/12/biden-ignored-pentagon-concerns-chinese-drone-purc/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

    “The Biden administration ignored an explicit warning from the Pentagon about “cybersecurity concerns” tied to Chinese-made drones and drone parts, proceeding with the purchase of such materials from a top Chinese company that the Trump administration blacklisted for national security reasons.

    A review of internal government procurement documents by The Washington Times found that the Secret Service went ahead with buying eight commercial surveillance drones manufactured by the Chinese drone-making giant Da Jiang Innovations (DJI) after the Pentagon issued its warning in July.

    The Secret Service has declined to comment on the purchases, but the contract has triggered mounting scrutiny from Republican lawmakers over the extent to which the agency has run afoul of restrictions on U.S. government use of equipment from certain Chinese companies — even if that equipment is available for purchase by U.S. citizens via e-commerce companies such as Amazon.

    It also has triggered concern among government watchdogs. Purchasing blacklisted technology from China is a “potential weak point” for any agency of the federal government, said Donald Maye, head of operations at the video surveillance research company IPVM, which obtained the government procurement documents showing the Secret Service paid $12,792 for the DJI drones on July 26.

    The transaction, which the Department of Homeland Security approved, was made three days after the Pentagon circulated a statement specifically warning that DJI drones “pose potential threats to national security” and stressing that the U.S. military has banned the purchases and use of such materials since 2018.

    “The fact that DoD was forthcoming in July to reaffirm that they posed a national security threat, I think, was quite telling, which is why I found it pretty alarming that the United States Secret Service had purchased several drones from DJI,” Mr. Maye said in an interview on Tuesday.”

    “A record 4.3 million workers quit their jobs in August, led by food and retail industries”

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/12/a-record-4point3-million-workers-quit-their-jobs-in-august-led-by-food-and-retail-industries.html

    “Employment vacancies fell to 10.4 million during the month, a drop of 659,000 from July’s upwardly revised 11.1 million, according to the Labor Department’s JOLTS report.

    The decline was well short of market expectations for 10.96 million job postings.

    Quits hit a new series high going back to December 2000, as 4.3 million workers left their jobs.”

    “Homeland Security secretary orders ICE to stop mass raids on immigrants’ workplaces”

    https://www.npr.org/2021/10/12/1045295677/alejandro-mayorkas-ice-workplace-raids-dhs

    “Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents will no longer conduct mass raids on workplaces where undocumented immigrants are employed, according to a new order by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

    The real problem, Mayorkas said in a memorandum released Tuesday, are “exploitative employers,” not unauthorized workers.

    Trump-era raids became tools for suppression, DHS says

    “Under the previous administration, these resource-intensive operations resulted in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers,” DHS said about the change. While the raids attracted attention and made headlines, the agency says they “were used as a tool by exploitative employers to suppress and retaliate against workers’ assertion of labor laws.”

    “EXCLUSIVE: Katie Couric covered up RBG’s dislike for taking the knee: Anchor says she edited 2016 interview to ‘protect’ the justice after she said people who kneel are showing ‘contempt for a government that made a decent life possible'”

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10088027/Katie-Couric-admits-editing-Ruth-Bader-Ginsburg-interview-protect-late-justice.html

    “Katie Couric has admitted to editing out Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s controversial comments from her 2016 sit-down with the late Supreme Court Justice

    Couric writes that she was faced with a ‘conundrum’ while working on the story for Yahoo! News, in her scathing new memoir, Going There, released October 26

    The former Today show host reveals Ginsburg responded negatively when asked about people who kneel for the national anthem as a protest against racism

    The published story did include quotes from the justice calling the gesture ‘dumb and disrespectful’ but omitted more controversial remarks

    Ginsburg had also said that such protests showed ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life’

    ‘…which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from…as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly,’ she added

    Couric claims that Ginsburg, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question’

    She admits she ‘wanted to protect’ Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a ‘blind spot’ for her”

    “Democrats Melting Down: GOP Flips Long-Held Blue Seat in Iowa Special Election”

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2021/10/13/vibe-check-gop-flips-longheld-blue-seat-in-iowa-special-election-n2597375

    “Happy Wednesday. How are things going for Democrats today? Let’s review a handful of headlines. (1) Out of Iowa, a legislative seat that has been in Democratic hands for decades is no longer blue. Over the summer, Republicans won back a state senate seat in affluent, suburban, Trump-hostile Connecticut. Last night, they picked off a different sort of district. Trump carried it, but it had remained blue at the state legislative level, even in recent cycles with Trump on the ballot. Change: ”

    “The decades of history is interesting, but let’s look at the more recent past: This district went (62/38) blue in 2012. Then (51/38) in 2016. It shifted back to deeper blue territory in the Democratic wave year of 2018, only to become a three-point squeaker in 2020. In yesterday’s special, the Republican won by a 20-point margin.

    (2) Retirement alert. This sort of exodus – a voluntary farewell from a powerful chairman in a safe seat – often presages an electoral rout. The writing appears on the wall, and people start heading for the exits:”
