Food Crisis In The Making: Farm Bankruptcies Reach Horrifying Levels

By Mac Slavo

We are amidst a food crisis.  Farms in the United States Midwest are filing for chapter 12 bankruptcy at an alarming rate.  And many are saying president Donald Trump’s trade war is taking the most blame.

We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. The trade war was a bad idea and everyday average Americans are footing the bill for this asinine policy of tariffs.  Now, the food supply could be in jeopardy because of political posturing and that will not bode well for already cash-strapped American families.

A total of 84 farms in the upper Midwest filed for bankruptcy between July 2017 and June 2018, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. That’s more than double the number of Chapter 12 filings during the same period in 2013 and 2014 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, reported Vox.

Farms that produce corn, soybeans, milk, and beef were all suffering due to low global demand and low prices before the trade war, according to economists, but president Trump’s trade war is making the problem even worse by exacerbating the weaknesses in the American economy. China has retaliated against the tariffs by slapping billions of dollars worth of tariffs on United States agriculture exports in response to Trump’s tariffs on Chinese products. Other countries, including Canada, have also added duties to US agriculture products in response to Trump’s tariffs on all imported steel and aluminum.

Opposition Builds To Interior Department Records Purge

Group Says Documents Reveal Efforts to Kill Wild Horses, Land Grabs and Other Outrages

A nonprofit advocating for wild horses, one of the groups opposing a massive proposed document purge at Trump’s Interior Department, said record requests helped the nonprofit learn about a plan to send thousands of wild horses to a tiger refuge in Russia.

“These records are especially important for oversight now that large numbers of wild horses and burros are being ‘adopted’ in larger numbers, and to organizations and to overseas destinations,” wrote Debbie Coffey, vice president of the Wild Horse Freedom Federation. “We will need to access these records in order to ensure that wild horses and burros are not being adopted or sold and ending up in the slaughter pipeline.”

The Trump administration wants to bury science and hide how mining, drilling and logging on public lands devastate our precious natural spaces.

The proposed document purge includes records about endangered species, oil and gas leases, timber sales, dams and land purchases.

The National Archives has said that getting rid of records is standard and has been going on for decades. The schedule’s language gives broad authority to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to destroy records documenting government efforts to protect endangered species and public lands.

“The Trump administration wants to bury science and hide how mining, drilling and logging on public lands devastate our precious natural spaces,” said Meg Townsend, an attorney for the Center for Biological Diversity.

The federation learned from a document request that the Bureau of Land Management in 2011 under former President Barack Obama considered shipping wild horses to a sanctuary in Siberia where they could be killed and eaten by leopards and tigers.

“Would we pay for shipping to Vladivostok or allow horses to be placed on a sanctuary with known heavy predator population?” asked Karla Bird, an acting division chief.

BLM ultimately decided against sending our nation’s wild horses to Russia to be eaten by tigers.

But in 2017, the bureau again was looking at sending horses to Russia and also to Guyana in South America.

Under the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, passed by Congress in 1971 when Republican Richard Nixon was president, the federal government is supposed to manage and protect the herds. Almost 82,000  wild horses and burros roam our nation’s public lands. More than 50,000 others are corralled.

The Trump administration proposed euthanizing or selling “excess animals” in 2017, but Congress kept a ban on slaughtering the animals.

Vaccines and Blue Foot Syndrome

Environmental concept. Human footprint on a background of green grass and blue sky, isolated on white.

I grow weary of people who continually demand “proof” that vaccines cause harm and do cause autism. Every year the insistence for “More research!! More research!” goes by, four million more children are born and lined up to be injected with multiple doses of 16 different toxic vaccines. Many of these precious bundles will become chronically ill; some will become death statistics.

Webster defines proof as “something that induces certainty or establishes validity.”

How much more “proof” is needed for confirmation that vaccines can cause devastating harm? Videos of children the day before, and then the day after, vaccines have documented autistic regression; the recordings are even admissible in Court as evidence. Is that enough “proof”? Heart-wrenching stories of first-hand observation about side effects after vaccines – high-pitched screaming, vomiting, seizures and even death – have been told by tens of thousands of parents. Is that proof, or all they all liars? Who would fabricate stories like that about their precious baby?

By now, physicians should be able to easily identify vaccine injury. But instead, it is much like the story of a child who dropped a large frozen turkey on his foot…

Within hours, his foot became bright blue. His parents, concerned because the child cried inconsolably and refused to walk, quickly sought medical help.

Vaccine Realities that Big Pharma Doesn’t Teach Us Doctors (or our Patients)

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD – November 28, 2018

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Why America’s Mandated Over-vaccination Schedules are Unsafe and of Questionable Usefulness

In 1986 a US law was passed that protected vaccine maker’s from ever being sued in a a regular court regardless of how many babies or children were injured or killed from the aluminum, mercury (aka Thimerosal), formaldehyde, aborted fetal cells, deadly peanut byproducts, cells of pigs, cows, monkeys, dogs, insects, MSG (monosodium glutamate), ether and other toxins that make up normal vaccines. At that time 1 in 10,000 children had Autism. Children went from 7 vaccines to more than 70. Today as many as 1 in 25 boys over age 12 has autism-which is really a term to hide the real condition: vaccine-induced encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and 1 in 5 high school kids have ADHD, Tourette’s syndrome, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes and cancer has gone sky high. No vaccine is ever looked at for its ability to cause cancer-surely not the combination of vaccines and cancer that is now the leading cause of death in little children. There is a federal Vaccine court that has paid 3.3 BILLION dollars to families bright enough to learn the system and were able to prove that the autism was from the vaccines.” — Shelley Tzorfas, author of Recovering Autism, ADHD, & Special Needs

___________________________________________________________________

Over the several decades since I really started studying vaccine issues in some depth – much too late for many of my vulnerable patients – I have come to see through the pervasive Big Pharma/Big Vaccine/Big Medicine propaganda that falsely and repeatedly asserted that all vaccines are safe, effective and necessary for the public health.
