Shortage of semiconductors hits manufacturing industries as Biden fails to solve supply chain crisis

(Natural News)
The shortage of semiconductors is worsening and the affected companies are compounding the situation by stockpiling their inventory – further depleting the already thinning supply. The dire situation is happening due to the prevailing global supply chain disruptions, which the Biden administration fails to solve.

Trading and technology firm Susquehanna Financial Group noted that the shortage will continue this year after its research proved that delivery times for chips jumped to an average of 25.78 weeks in December from just six days in November.

This is the longest wait time since Susquehanna started monitoring the data in 2017.

Susquehanna analyst Chris Rolland said the rate of lead time expansion for nearly every product category, with power management and microcontrollers on top of the list, reached all-time highs. (Related: Biden is not doing anything to resolve the supply chain crisis.)

“The rate of lead time has been choppy, but picked up again on December,” said Rolland. Lead time is the gap between when a semiconductor is ordered and delivered. An increase would suggest chip shortages are persisting while a decrease would indicate easing.

The present situation poses a big problem for automakers as a longer wait for microcontrollers being used in cars will hamper production. Also affected are industries related to electronics, heavy equipment, appliances and other consumer durables that rely on automated applications.

Shortages due to global supply chain crisis

With shortages happening because of the global supply chain crisis, people are finding it hard to find microchips, gas, steel, metals, chicken, lumber and even chlorine and ketchup packets.


Those buying a new car, smartphone or washing machine, for example, face long wait plus high prices due to the shortage of computer chips.

It’s an entirely different situation for chips manufacturers as the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index is up more than 200 percent since early 2020. (Related: Top selling vehicles are being held back, made without computers as semiconductor shortage sweeps the globe.)

Production and delivery problems initially happen only in the car industry, but upending supply chains and changing consumer shopping patterns plus the global economy recession due to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic resulted to shortages in other products as well.

Car manufacturers cut back orders for chips, while tech companies, whose product sales were boosted by the lockdown needed to snap up as many as they could.

From cars to consumer electronics

Analysts believe that the shortage will spread from cars to consumer electronics and the crunch will continue since a handful of suppliers control chip production.

It’s a good thing, electronic giant Samsung intends to build a $17 billion semiconductor factory outside of Austin, Texas, amid a global shortage of chips used in phones, cars and other electronic devices.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott stressed that Samsung’s project is the largest foreign direct investment in the state of Texas.

The construction will start this year and operations are expected to begin in the second half of 2024. The new facility will boost Samsung production of high-tech chips used for 5G mobile communications, advanced computing and artificial intelligence, and also improve supply chain resilience.

According to Samsung Vice Chairman Kinam Kim, the electronics giant chose the site based on government incentives and local infrastructure.

US faces national security concerns

Due to the shortage of chips, the U.S. faces national security concerns and problems in doing businesses. The inadequate supply of semiconductors is affecting the production of new vehicles and electronic devises.

Many American companies depend on chips produced in Taiwan and China, which are locked in dispute as China regards Taiwan as a runaway province.

Research analyst Nina Turner said it’s a concentration and geopolitical risk for the U.S. to rely much on Taiwan.

“It’s a concentration risk, a geopolitical risk to be so reliant on Taiwan for the chips,” said Turner, adding the current shortages will likely subside but there will be a long-term demand for chips as more and more daily products rely on them.

Many chipmakers are spreading out their manufacturing operations in response to the shortages, which have taken a toll on sectors from automakers to the video gaming industry. The U.S., being the world’s richest economy, is feeling the brunt of the impact.

300,000 Brits Have ‘Stealth’ Heart Condition That Could Kill Them ‘In 5 Years,’ Researchers Say





 By Andrew White

 January 27, 2022 at 11:02am

Doctors are urgently warning people in the United Kingdom that 300,000 Brits are living with a “stealth” heart condition that could kill them within five years.

A report by The Sun warned that some 300,000 Brits in the United Kingdom are living with a “stealth” heart disease that could kill them in five years, according to researchers in the UK and Australia.

A third of the people with the mysterious heart disease are “likely to have no idea they are infected because they do not show clear symptoms.”

The disease, aortic valve stenosis (AS) is a heart condition that “often shows no symptoms until it’s already too late.”

From the report:

The condition is when the heart’s aortic valve narrows, reducing or blocking blood flow from the heart into the main artery to the body (aorta).

This can cause chest pain, dizziness, fatigue, or a rapid, fluttering heartbeat in the more severe and life-threatening cases.

Some people are more prone to getting it, including those of older age, with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart conditions from birth.

Given the ageing of the UK population, it is thought that there may be a large pool of as yet undiagnosed people.

Does the COVID-19 vaccine adversely impact the heart?

Researchers in the UK and Australia set out to estimate how many people could be living with the condition now, and of those, how many are at risk of death.

According to the researchers, 1.5% of people over the age of 55 in the UK at any one time could have severe AS, equal to around 300,000 people.

Just under 200,000 of them were symptomatic, indicating that they had a severe case of the disease and were eligible for surgery.

The remaining 90,000 had a “silent” case and will “probably not be diagnosed” unless they are screened for other issues.

Without timely treatment, researchers say, an estimated 172,859 people will die over the next five years heading into 2024, meaning 35,000 people every year, with 10,000 of those deaths being among 55-64 year olds.

Studies have shown that people with a severe case of AS who do not get treated with surgery have a 25% chance of dying within the first year after symptoms begin, with the risk increasing to 50% in the second year.

The researchers, led by Geoffrey Strange, a cardiologist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, said: “In conclusion, this study suggests that severe [aortic stenosis] is a common condition affecting many individuals within the UK population aged 55 [and older].

“Without appropriate detection and intervention, their survival prospects are likely to be poor.”

The researchers are concerned the NHS will not be able to cope with the wave of older people with aortic disease over the next few years.

The research comes as some remain concerned that myocarditis and other heart conditions known to be side effects of the controversial COVID-19 vaccines are not being taken seriously.

Some suggested the new warning regarding AS and the COVID-19 vaccines could be linked, though National File was not able to find evidence confirming this.

It’s the jabs!! Don’t flannel the truth! This stealth heart disease bollocks is just the cover up to justify the coming deaths!!!

hey vaxxers.

they’re already setting up the excuse when you mindless sheep start dying.

Judge Forces Trump Attorney to Turn Over 1,500 Pages a Day for Liz Cheney’s Amusement




A California judge is forcing Trump Attorney John Eastman to review and turn over at least 1,500 documents a day in the Democrat Party’s continued harassment and abuse of the opposition party.

Eastman, a staunch Trump supporter, is a major target of the communist left in their ongoing attempt to crush their opponents and send a message to the people of America. NO dissent will be allowed.

Liz Cheney and her committee members must be very pleased.

Eastman was outspoken in his belief that the 2020 election was stolen from the most popular president in American history. Trump recorded more votes by a sitting President in a national election. A majority of Americans to this day believe the election was decided by fraudulent means.

Via Newsmax:

A federal judge Wednesday night ruled that former President Donald Trump’s lawyer must review at least 1,500 pages of records per business day and immediately transfer any unprivileged documents to the House Jan. 6 committee.

Judge David Carter, of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, ordered attorney John Eastman to begin producing pages to congressional investigators beginning Friday, Politico reported.

Any documents Eastman deems privileged must be given to Carter. If the committee challenges the lawyer’s claim, the judge will review the records to determine whether the assertion was valid before holding a hearing to adjudicate the privilege disputes.

Carter earlier rejected Eastman’s attempt to block the committee’s subpoena for 19,000 pages of emails held by his former employer, Chapman University. Eastman has claimed that many of the emails relate to his legal clients and therefore be subject to potential attorney-client privilege.

The Wednesday night ruling showed that Carter is taking a more hands-on approach than any federal judge so far to assist the Jan. 6 select committee’s effort to access specific documents from a reluctant witness.
