Some context. WSJ 24 Sep:
"The Port of Los Angeles is holding back on extending its gate hours as encouraged by the Biden administration..."… 1/4
"Gene Seroka, executive director of the Port of Los Angeles, said there is slack in the system that connects inbound and outbound containers to trucks serving inland distribution points. He said 30% of trucking appointment slots for transferring cargo go unused each day... 2/4
"Mr. Seroka said the port can extend operating hours only if trucking, warehousing and other industries also move toward 24-hour operations...
"Steve Hennessey, chief operating officer of the Pacific Maritime Association, which represents terminal operators, said... 3/4
...extended cargo-handling hours would alleviate congestion only if everyone in the supply chain works nights and weekends."
Comment: Lot of both independent & union labor in supply chain; betting against most of them moving to crapshoot of 24-hr ops. Flawed business model. 4/4

Addendum to thread.
@ChuckRossDC posts KEY missing link: documented potential in Durham court filing for 3rd party to *fake* links btwn Alfa Bank & Trump server. Add1/5
Very important b/c it expands motive to 3rd parties.
Look back at who was engaged w/Russian intel in Mar 2016.
Brennan talking to. Comey watching Russian intel chatter.
Alfa Bank rumor goes fm former CIA Baer to Shearer in Mar-Apr 2916, before pings started. Add2/5
Proposition: it wasn't Russia w/motive to fake Alfa Bank contacts w/Trump server.
Whole Spygate drama tells us it was DNC/Hillary.
Whom did Brennan esp. help w/his series of actions? E.g. Aug 2016 pushing NSC-level "task force," exhorting Congress on Trump probe. Add3/5

This could, actually, be "the one" that blows the whole thing open, if the string is fully pulled.
Timeframe of 1st mention of "Alfa Bank" rumor was, as others have noted (*5/5), before the server lookups started on 5 May 2016.
Shearer got Baer (fmr CIA) tip in Mar-Apr 2016. 1/5
Some big movements in that period.
1. Brennan trip to FSB in Moscow.
2. Exposure of contractor access to unminimized USPI at FBI (meant a plan had to change - MAJOR juncture).
3. Page & Pdop installed on Trump campaign team; overtures by FBI/CIA-linked actors to Pdop began. 2/5
Oddly enough, Comey's long-maintained allegation of Russian intel showing Loretta Lynch had assured Hillary staffer the email probe wouldn't go too far...gave Mar 2016 as its timeframe.
Motive alert?

This is silly. The fact check is fine, but orig concern is badly misdirected.…
There's been more than one NATO command in Norfolk, including Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic (SACLANT) for many yrs in the Cold War. Had the counterpart "SACEUR" in Europe. SACLANT was shuttered in 2003. 2/4
Allied Command Transformation is a training command with a peculiar name but a standard mission to develop vision, doctrine & common standards for the Allied forces. 3/4

I covered all the possibilities in my article at LU on this.
Not useful to just say we don't believe NSA. On balance, I believe NSA. The statement is fully responsive *for NSA.*… 1/7
I also think it's very probable Carlson IS being monitored.
I said I doubted *NSA* was monitoring him. That has a particular meaning, and NSA doesn't have to lie to disclaim it. 2/7
Folks, you and possibly Carlson are being played by terminology here. That's why we need a @DevinNunes on this to get to ground truth.
- If someone's unmasking Carlson in incidental monitoring, it's not NSA. It's another agency using data that's retrieved thru NSA. 3/7

Wd be illuminating to try (to ban Marxism on same basis as "banning CRT").
Ppl don't realize we've taught everything thru class-divisive lens of Marxism for 50+ yrs. Definitions of "capitalism" & capital-labor dichotomy, "blue-collar" vs. "professional" are Marxist concepts. 1/4
Politicizing & weaponizing social divisions is heavily systematized by Marxist thought. Schools K-12 have been prepping Americans to participate in such a polity since mid-1950s.
Marxist framework of leveraging *theoretical ideology* to railroad society has been foundational 2/4
... for transforming ppl's view of govt, from limited/specialized service-provider to managerial, all-purpose tool of transformation & guarantees.
*No reality needed*; act on ideology. "Reinterpret" reality as necessary.
We don't just offer study of Marxism in schools. 3/4

Key points (thread):
1. Chinese base sits right at Bab-el-Mandeb Str chokepoint. Pivotal. (US there too, for now.)
2. PIER-side access for carrier means extended deplmt/presence. Can do maintenance forward.… 1/5
Note that China already significantly improved base facilities. Extensive underground fortifications.
Could support weapons caches (incl special weps), maint/repair, and command/control.… 2/5
In 2015, during Obama yrs, Djibouti reportedly made unconfirmed proposal for US to relocate and let China take over port.
Undoubtedly urged by China to do that. Conditions ripe for reemergence of such a push from Beijing.… 3/5
