What an embarrassing state of affairs!
You know the country is headed for despair when mothers aren’t capable of feeding their children due solely to the policies of one madman and his globalist buddies.
The most recent tragedy spurred by Biden’s disastrous economy is a nationwide shortage of baby formula. It’s quite a harrowing situation to visit a grocery store hoping to buy food for your baby only to see the shelves empty and bare — a sign of a country in total decline.
The crisis caused outrage from mothers, fathers, and just about everyone else in the country, which created a political bottleneck for Biden and the Democrats.
They were forced to act quickly in order to quell social unrest, knowing all too well how populations historically react when feeding your family becomes impossible.
Did the Biden administration take any responsibility for the formula shortage? Did they change course, focusing more on domestic production of consumer goods?
The Biden administration simply asked Europe for help as if the United States is now a third-world country unable to feed its own citizens. Additionally, the Biden administration blamed the private sector and deployed the fascistic Defense of Production Act, which gives the federal government power to dictate how private companies operate.
Over the weekend, Joe Biden celebrated the first shipment of baby formula as a part of “Operation Fly Formula”.
Approximately 78,000 pounds of powdered baby formula are the equivalent of up to 1.5 million 8-ounce bottles of three particular formulas: Alfamino Infant, Alfamino Junior, and Gerber Good Start Extensive HA arrived in Indiana on Saturday.

Additional flights are expected to be announced in the coming days.
National Economic Council Director Brian Deese said on Sunday that the flight has enough formula to fill 15% of the need for formula throughout the country. He also skirted blame for the deficiency, claiming a particular formula manufacturer “wasn’t following the rules.”
"We had a manufacturer that was not following the rules."

Does that not sound like a line out of Communist China?
“DOD will use its contracts with commercial air cargo lines, as it did to move materials during the early months of the COVID pandemic, to transport products from manufacturing facilities abroad that have met Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety standards,” the White House said in a statement.
The administration also announced on Wednesday that it is invoking the Defense Production Act to force companies that provide essential ingredients to formula manufacturers to serve them before other clients.
The new measures were the latest in a series of actions from Washington to restock store shelves after the FDA caused a significant formula plant to shutter earlier this year, triggering the shortage, which triggered the shortage in tandem with massive supply chain disruptions.
We should expect many more shortages and many more attempts to correct them — even if it means the complete take over of all private industry by the federal government!
