The Great (Panic) Reset (Button) - Buckle Up for 2021! 🍿

There is an interesting slow motion collapse of the logistics chain on West Coast of the US at the moment. The port of LA, Long Beach and Seattle are working basically the same shift pattern as they always have. With Seattle working way below capacity because of the loss of key workers due to the state vaccine mandate. They are all union shops. Mostly Teamsters. Enough said.

But in California the cluster fuck is mostly due to recent state laws which have reduced both the number of trucks available and the number of truckers to move containers from ports by a large number in the last few years. Due to new insane emissions regulations at least half of all trucks in state (by one count) have been taken out of service. And out of state trucks are not legal.

The guy who wrote the experts report that was used by CARB as the basis for the new emissions regulation had a fake PhD. But it was AB 5 the union financed anti Uber law, which has remove all the truckers. Most were small operations either self employed or employing 5 or 10 drivers. All put out of business by AB 5. Most either retired or moved out of state.

As the unions are the biggest single contributors to state politicians, at at least 30% of state assembly members works for unions one way or another, and the governor is a sock puppet, it will take the Federal Government stepping in and setting aside a whole bunch of state regulations before the problems can be dealt with in any meaningful way. So we are fucked. People working in logistics are taking about very serious supply problems in the coming months. Empty shelves for extended periods of time. All due to very corrupt or very stupid Democrat state politicians. Usually both.

And it gets even better. Turns out they intruded a new “low sulfur” fuel standard for cargo ships that mean that large numbers of old ships were retired. Too expensive to retrofit. So most of the newer ships are PANAMAX+. Which cannot be berthed or unloaded at most major ports in the US. Cannot be diverted to alternate ports because they cannot get in.

Plus its a much more expensive fuel so shipping costs up.

Plus the alternative option of offloading to smaller ships and shipping to other ports not available due to Federal laws that go back almost 100 years. Making inter port freight forwarding by sea non viable. So can only be shipped by rail or road.

So just like with Basel II and 2008 looking like we have a perfect storm were international and local regulations had turned a serious short term problem into a total catastrophe collapsing the system.


I blame Brexit

Good run down here.

1 huge problem area is all the empty containers.
Private yards near the port can only stack empties 2 high.
Trailers (chassis) can’t offload their empty container anywhere so therefore can’t collect a full one.
A monstrous bottleneck.

Since this guys tweets, local yards may now stack them 4 high, which may just be a drop in the ocean.

He recommends a 500 acre site for empty containers until this crisis is over.

This is what Newsom actually signed… SFA…

The City of Long Beach allow a 4 stack now.

The reason for the stacking limit… the containers might ruin the view…

current code limits containers stacking to no more than two containers, no more than eight-feet tall. This is normally mandated to reduce the visual impact of the port on surrounding areas.

Its so those very expensive condos beach side dont have their view “ruined”. Even though Port of Long Beach / San Pedro, one of the biggest ports in the US, is just across the river. Pretty much everywhere you look north east, east and south east is port. The only good view is looking south.

BIG PRESS of the Reset button today for IRELAND, extra hard press. Lots of on/off up to this point.

So… are these fines new? Comment cut & paste from elsewhere :slight_smile:

First they pass a law making it near impossible for independent and owner-operator truckers to work in CA (see my earlier mini-rant).
Now they are going to start fining shippers (that used those same truckers to move cargo containers) for not moving their cargo containers!!

A post was merged into an existing topic: “Buckle UP!” - The next 12 days and beyond


Q: So the Great Reset Ireland came in around the same time mandatory masks were introduced?**

…Looks like it. I headed off to Spain in early July, Ireland had just brought it in mandatory for transport.

The whole thread of posts:

  1. Did You Know The Great Reset In Ireland Has Been In Place Since July 2020 ?

They have been trying to keep a relative low profile but the wheels are well and truly in motion. Let’s jump in.

:thread: 1/26

  1. The Great Reset only came into existence on June 3rd 2020 which was announced by Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum. Speakers were Prince Charles, UN General Secretary Antonio Guterres & IMF Head Kristalina Georgieva

  2. The first mention of The Great Reset in Ireland took place on July 6th 2020 and the most recent one on April 16th 2021. It is IAPI who have been driving this behind the scenes. To date they have had 6 events online.…

THINKHOUSE lead “The Great Reset” to tackle climate crisis | IAPI IAPI is the representative body for Irish advertising agencies - Find an Agency, Discover Events & Training, Find a Job, Access Guides & Reports on the industry

  1. IAPI are the Institute Of Advertising Practitioners. All of Ireland’s leading advertising agencies are registered with them and IAPI act as the central cog for sending out information about events etc.

All Great Reset events can be found at

Blog | IAPI IAPI is the representative body for Irish advertising agencies - Find an Agency, Discover Events & Training, Find a Job, Access Guides & Reports on the industry

  1. The Great Reset in Ireland is being run by ThinkHouseHQ (TH) who are working in conjunction with a UK company called The Purpose Disruptors. The Irish arm is headed up by Laura Costello of ThinkHouse.

  2. Thinkhouse are heavily involved in “Sustainability & Climate”. They call themselves a “Youth Marketing Company” and they work with brands and organisations to help them understand and connect with youth audiences.

  3. IAPI stated on July 24th that they hoped to recruit more Irish agencies to take action on climate crisis. They had a “Great Reset Gathering” at the end of July which was co-hosted by UK company Purpose Disruptors (PD).

  4. A White Paper was also written which was sent to all the agencies to “help deepen people’s understanding and sets out the need for people in the industry to ‘reset ourselves’, ‘reset out work’ and ‘reset our impact’


  1. The brief asked that “the industry creates something to celebrate accidental climate heroes and encourage them to make it a badge of honour”

I’m assuming all of the agencies were to read the white paper before they could submit any work for the upcoming GR ad campaign in 2021

  1. The white paper itself was co written by ThinkHouse & PD. Although it doesn’t mention the WEF, its fingerprints are all over it. It’s pretty hardcore. In the opening paragraph

“Our industry has been complicit in environmental destruction. All of us have been complicit”

  1. They talk about a small “window of opportunity” to shape the future we want for our industry & society. We need them to grab this opportunity to help shape a society that puts mankind and our planet’s needs first and join The Great Reset.

Klaus Schwab said the same thing.

  1. Davos also gets a mention in the White Paper: “Davos 2021 is to be held under the theme of The Great Reset “to improve the state of the world in the context of human dignity, social justice and societal progress”

  2. It also states “Remember: there is no “back to normal” – this experience doesn’t come to an end, it continues – we progress”

Universal Basic Income, Sustainability, Diversity, Inclusivity & Black Lives Matter all get a mention in the White Paper as well

  1. The White Paper also talks about

Reset how we travel, Reset what we buy, Reset what we eat (promoting a largely plant- based diet) Reset how we use energy, Reset our connection to nature:

All of these are central to WEF & The Great Reset

  1. On Thursday 10th September they held a Zoom call where they had over 150 Irish marketing people on as they launched the Great Reset in Ireland. This was all facilitated by IAPI the Institute Of Advertising Practitioners.

  2. So what was the call all about ?

I must have some kind of a death wish as I listened to it so you don’t have to. The call was primarily about climate change and here are some of the soundbites to save you having to top yourself

The Great Reset Ireland | IAPI IAPI is the representative body for Irish advertising agencies - Find an Agency, Discover Events & Training, Find a Job, Access Guides & Reports on the industry

  1. “We can make a difference to the future of life on earth bound by the common cause of climate change

We are bound by a common cause of climate change & have a love of clean air,trees & oceans”

Others on the call openly admitted to crying on previous calls. Seriously

  1. At the end of the call the final nail in the coffin was “Every movement starts this way just like Black Lives Matter did”.

I expect more than half on the call were very heavily involved in the climate protests in 2019 (thanks Greta) and the BLM marches last year in Dublin

  1. WEF & GR buzzwords such as sustainability, community, extinction rebellion, carbon footprint and environment were constantly plugged. It almost seemed like a type of brainwashing was taking place.

  2. One very interesting point to come out of the call was how the advertising agencies try to influence their clients and brands. They basically admitted that they try to integrate and push sustainability when doing the advertising campaigns. Expect to see more of that in 2021.

  3. In a blog post from Nov 3rd on IAPI we can see who is involved in The Irish Great Reset. RTE being the most prominent name. This may partially explain why they are so wedded to the idea of lockdowns.…

Invitation to The Great Reset Ireland – 6 Nov Collaborative Workshop | IAPI IAPI is the representative body for Irish advertising agencies - Find an Agency, Discover Events & Training, Find a Job, Access Guides & Reports on the industry

  1. Between November and April it has all been very quiet. To be honest I was expecting the climate change Great Reset ad campaigns on billboards and MSM to be in full swing. It looks more likely to be rolled out later on in the year.

  2. As of 28th April 2021 Purpose Disruptors have launched The Great Reset Fortnight, a series of events and workshops designed to empower communications professionals to accelerate the fight against the climate crisis.

Purpose Disruptors launch The Great Reset Fortnight with… | IAPI IAPI is the representative body for Irish advertising agencies - Find an Agency, Discover Events & Training, Find a Job, Access Guides & Reports on the industry

  1. These sessions will be the first of their kind in Ireland with the aim of reshaping the advertising and marketing communications industry to only promote attitudes, lifestyles, behaviours and brands aligned with a net zero world by 2030.

UN Agenda 2030

  1. We can see that GR Ireland has very specifically been installed for the next phase post corona or in conjunction with it. These guys are very well mobilised and deeply wedded to their cause without realising the bigger picture which potentially makes them more of a liability.

  2. You know the drill :grinning: I write these :thread: in my spare time and would really appreciate if you could retweet the very 1st tweet. Likes are great but retweets are required to reach as large an audience as possible to expose what is really going on behind the scenes. Many thanks.

We can confirm that the letters we have been republishing in relation to the Great Reset and the Dutch Government are REAL and as a result of an FOI from Pepijn van Houwelingen a member of the Dutch House of Representatives.


World Economic Forum:

“We Cannot Hide Away from Human Population… All These Things We Talk About Wouldn’t Be a Problem If It Was the Size of The Population 500 Years Ago.”

Video @ Src:

Around 500 million, 500 years ago. Well I never… :icon_beer:

Soros’ foundation is most certainly funding the disinformation campaign about Putin invading Ukraine at any moment.

I’ll consult the Shapers.

You’ll behave, and you’ll be happy.

Now let’s take a look at another WEF power player who operates in the shadows, who boldly seeks to fundamentally transform the world through the “Great Reset.”

He is the chairman and CEO of BlackRock, the world’s largest investment firm with $10 trillion in assets, a firm that has at least a partial ownership of almost every major corporation in the world, including the big media and Big Tech companies.

So Fink is not your average CEO. He:

  • Plays a key role at Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, where he is a member of the board of trustees and listed as one of the top “ agenda contributors .”

  • Sits on the board of directors for the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which has been the most powerful driver of U.S. foreign policy for the last 75 years, to the point where it’s impossible to work in the upper echelons of the U.S. State Department without being a member of this elitist globalist club.

  • Sits on the board of the International Rescue Committee, one of nine private agencies that works to funnel refugees into North America and Europe, mostly from countries that CFR-trained diplomats and Pentagon apparatchiks help to destabilize with wars and revolutions. These refugees come from places like Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan, cultures that don’t typically mix well in Western societies.

So when Fink speaks, the world’s most powerful business leaders are all ears. He controls trillions of dollars in investment money and sits on all the key globalists boards.

Here’s what he had to say in a New York Times forum from four years ago:

“Behaviors are going to have to change and this is one thing we are asking companies, you have to force behaviors and at BlackRock, we are forcing behaviors,” Fink said
