    Will our economy fail because of DEF?

    Opinion piece.

    Will our economy fail because of DEF?

    I do not normally buy into conspiracies but this effects the OTR Drivers we protect legally, so... the more you know.

    Do you know what DEF fluid is? It is Diesel Exhaust Fluid. Every Diesel truck that has been made since 2010 is required to use it. It is a product made of 33% Urea fertilizer and 67% distilled water. Every diesel truck you see driving down the road today must have this product to drive. The engines will not run without it. There are regulators inside the engine that mix DEF with the Diesel to reduce Diesel emissions. That is the purpose of DEF.

    Right now, Russia is the largest exporter of Urea by a wide margin. Qatar is second. Egypt and China are tied for third. Both Russia and China have decided to no longer export Urea. On top of that, India is the largest manufacturer of Urea in the world even though they consume most of what they make. What little they would export..........they no longer do. They have stopped the exportation of all Urea minus a deal they just cut with Sri Lanka.

    What does this mean for you and me? Well, first, the United States imports most of its Urea fertilizer. We are the third largest importer in the entire world. We depend on other countries to eat, drive, and ship our products.

    Secondly... Flying J is the largest Service provider for Truckers around the Unites States. I am sure you have seen their massive gas stations when traveling around the country. Flying J gets 70% of their DEF fluid from shipments via Union Pacific railroad. UP has single user access to the Fertilizer plants that most Urea/DEF fluid comes from. No other rail provider has access to these distribution points. This means Flying J cannot just go around Union Pacific. Union Pacific is in charge. Why is that? I am going to explain later.

    Flying J provides 30% of all DEF consumed in the United States. UP has told Flying J to reduce their shipments by a whopping 50%. And if they do not comply then they will be completely embargoed. That would in effect bankrupt FJ. This means that 15% of all DEF consumed by truckers in the US is no longer available at the largest travel service center for the entire trucking industry.

    Rome rotted from the inside out. It was easily invaded because it was occupied with internal problems. Are we like Rome? Could we collapse from within?
    If so... It appears we have discovered the Trigger. DEF fluid. If this holds up, DEF shortages will be the catalyst that causes food shortages in the coming months. Not only is there a shortage of fertilizer to grow crops in drought-stricken states (See Kansas' drop in wheat production for 2022)....but....now it looks like, unless the Federal Government intervenes via the Defense Production Act, ...which I am no longer confident they will....there is going to be an absolute massive shortage of trucking in the coming months.

    There simply is not going to be DEF fluid sufficient to keep the engines running and moving. Home Depot is now limiting the amount of DEF you can buy in their stores.

    I would think long and hard about the decisions you are making right now. Where you live. What you spend money on. How you prepare. This is so real that the CEO of Flying J, Shameek Konar, was summoned to a Surface Transportation Board hearing to give them all this info.

    From what I am reading.... Blackrock is the majority shareholder of Union Pacific railroad. How is that important? Americas biggest fertilizer producer is CF Industries. Their largest shareholder is Blackrock. Blackrock controls the fertilizer industry in the U.S. Union Pacific has exclusive rights to distribution points of fertilizer. Urea is fertilizer. Flying J needs Urea/DEF. Blackrock is controlling everything.

    The Chairman of the BlackRock Investment Institute is Tom Donilon, President Obamaís former National Security Advisor. Tom Donilonís brother, Mike Donilon is a Senior Advisor to Joe Biden. Tom Donilonís wife, Catherine Russell, is the White House Personnel Director. Tom Donilonís daughter, Sarah Donilon, who graduated college in 2019, now works on the White House National Security Council.

    It appears Blackrock is spearheading the dismantling of the US system on behalf of the Globalists. And the first domino they are pushing over is the energy sector. They are using DEF to get the party started.

    Opinion: Will diesel exhaust fluid crash the economy?

    Posted by ClarkCountyToday.com
    Date: Tuesday, May 31, 2022

    In her weekly column, Nancy Churchill discusses how a possible shortage of DEF could bring the trucking industry to its knees

    Nancy Churchill
    Dangerous Rhetoric

    Do you know what diesel exhaust fluid is? On the retail market, itís known as AdBlue. Are you aware that a possible shortage of this important product could bring the trucking industry to its knees? Just when you thought things couldnít get much worse, hereís the thing that could crash the entire U.S. economy. Whatís going on?

    On May 25, Ken Cameron posted an article on LinkedIn titled ďWill our economy fail because of DEF?íí He explained that ďEvery Diesel truck that has been made since 2010 is required to use it (DEF). It is a product made of 33% Urea fertilizer and 67% distilled water. Every diesel truck you see driving down the road today must have this product to drive. The engines will not run without it.Ē The bottom line is that freight wonít move without DEF.

    You can probably already guess why this might be a problem. Natural gas is the key raw material in urea production. Urea is primarily exported by Russia, Qatar, and China. Like fertilizer, DEF is made with urea and the United States imports most of the urea it uses. The United States depends on other countries to eat, drive, and transport our products.

    The next part of the DEF puzzle has to do with a dispute between Union Pacific Railroad and the Pilot/Flying J Corporation. If youíve ever done a long road trip, youíve probably stopped at a Flying J travel center. Flying J ďis one of the leading suppliers of fuel and is the largest operator of travel centers in North America.Ē Flying J sells 30 percent of ALL the DEF consumed in the United States.

    According to Ken Cameronís excellent article, Flying J gets seventy percent of its DEF via Union Pacific Railroad. Due to distribution points controlled by Union Pacific, Flying J cannot go to another supplier. Union Pacific is in control. In April, Union Pacific told Flying J to reduce its shipments of DEF by 50 percent, or else they would be embargoed, which would effectively bankrupt Flying J.

    The reason for this ultimatum is unclear, and according to the testimony by Flying J CEO Shameek Konar to the Surface Transportation Board, may be due to a misunderstanding between the two corporations. Unfortunately, Union Pacific Railroad has not been responding to the Flying Jís requests for more information on the unusual demand to cut shipments.

    If this ultimatum is enforced, Union Pacificís restrictions on Flying J will cause shortages, since this would cut the national supply of DEF by 15 percent. In his testimony, Mr. Konar explained that a single rail car provides 3000 trucks worth of DEF fills (2.7 gal DEF/ per 100 gal of diesel). Every missed rail car will reduce trucking potential by 5 million miles!

    A friend of mine in the trucking industry has confirmed for me that this possible DEF shortage is a big deal. The trucks wonít move without DEF. And, while it might be physically possible to disconnect the regulator, any operator would face fines and other possible penalties if caught doing such a thing.

    The shortage of DEF is also a global problem, not just a United States problem. Because of this, the urea fertilizer shortage will not resolve quickly, and it is going to impact both food production and the transportation sector. These shortages will drive inflation even higher.

    What can we do with this information? Food supply chains are a concern, so prepare now for shortages later this year. If you have a diesel rig that needs DEF to move, you will need to have some backup supplies of DEF.

    Iím concerned about the DEF supplies needed to keep our water tankers and other fire fighting equipment running as we approach fire-fighting season in Washington state. I hope our fire departments will take action now to secure a supply of DEF for the summer.

    Within the United States, it would make a lot of sense to ramp up the production of natural gas, and encourage companies to begin production of urea fertilizer. Itís crazy to be dependent on other nations for a product that is essential to both food production and transportation.

    Unfortunately, the Biden administration appears to be very hostile towards the production of natural gas in the United States. Does it want to crash the economy on purpose? Another possible solution would be to temporarily lift the requirement to use DEF until the shortage of urea has been resolved.

    For this issue, concerned citizens will be most effective by reaching out to the federal level of government. Call or write to both of your U.S. Senators and your Representative. The 5th Congressional Districtís Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers is the Republican Leader on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Please write to her with your concerns about this issue.

    Donít shrug and ignore this problem with Diesel Exhaust Fluid. Youíve been warned. Share this information, plan ahead and reach out to your elected officials. Be ready for hard times, and pray for our nation. Plan for the worst, and hope for the best.

    This is going around on Facebook now... copy and pasted:

    Not a Pretty Picture!

    Wanted to share this w/ you: Pay attention, please.

    Do you know what DEF fluid is? It's Diesel Exhaust Fluid. Every Diesel truck that has been made since 2010 is required to use it. It's a product made of 67% Urea fertilizer and 33% distilled water. Every diesel truck you see driving down the road today has to have this product to drive. The engines won't start without it. There are regulators inside the engine that mix DEF with the Diesel to reduce Diesel emissions. That's the purpose of DEF.

    Right now, Russia is the largest exporter of Urea by a wide margin. Qatar is second. Egypt and China are Tied for 3rd. Both Russia and China have decided to no longer export Urea. On top of that, India is the largest manufacturer of Urea in the world even though they consume most of what they make. What little they would export..........they no longer do.

    They are now stopping the exportation of any and all Urea minus a deal they just cut with Sri Lanka.

    What does this mean for you and me? Well, first, the United States imports most of its Urea fertilizer. We are the third largest importer in the entire world. We depend on other countries to eat, drive and ship our products.

No other rail provider has access to these distribution points. This means Flying J can't just go around Union Pacific. Union Pacific is in charge....for a reason I'm gonna mention in a few paragraphs.

    Flying J provides 30% of all DEF consumed in the United States. UP has told Flying J to reduce their shipments by a whopping 50%. And if they do not comply then they will be completely embargoed.

    Biden is compromised and a traitor to our country, and we know Obama is pulling the strings.

    I had received something like that from a friend, so I looked for source documents that attributes the authors.
