Food Crisis In The Making: Farm Bankruptcies Reach Horrifying Levels

1 Comment

 

 

 

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.

“What difference does an increase in the National Debt make? We owe it to ourselves.” our typical congress-critter has declared. Such a paraphrased statement, reflecting on the exoskeleton structure of the Federal Reserve, ignores the inner historic mechanisms of Rothschild banking, the intense subterfuge and arm-twisting of the Fed’s creation, and the proven destructive forces inherent but hidden therein. 1

The medieval Rothschild Banks established a line of credit for the King provided the King issued a written promise to pay gold, with interest, to the bank at a time in the future. The book-entry Rothschild credit was used to pay for obligations incurred by the king and the credit continued to be circulated in the kingdom between merchants. The bankers sold the king’s interest bearing promise of gold to investors. The promise was renewed on its maturing date and was perpetually rolled-over. 2

VOILA !!! The king made the suppliers of services happy with Rothschild credit; the bankers had the gold; the public had a promise that the king would eventually pay them in gold—which would never happen. 3 Everything went smoothly as long as the bank could sell the promise and the people did not demand the gold. 4 As Benjamin Ginsburg has lamented in FATAL EMBRACE; (bankers) AND THE STATE 5, eventually the schemes, which stole the wealth from the people, would come to a catastrophic climax. 6 More

The Netflix Tax: Coming to a Screen Near You

Leave a comment

Let’s hope you were able to get in all your binge watching before the new year, as online streaming entertainment may very well be the next thing that we enjoy slapped with a tax.

Many cities across the country have found that taxes from utilities have taken a hit with the rise in the number of people who have decided to “cut the cord” from cable companies. During the second quarter of 2016 alone, over 812,000 people cancelled their paid television subscriptions and switched to various streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and SlingTV, which only require internet access.

As that telecom tax revenue continues to fall off, cities across the country are losing approximately $50 dollars (much more in larger cities) per cable subscriber in tax. Accordingly, lawmakers have discovered a brand new source of revenue in digital entertainment.

It’s called the “Netflix tax,” and it is beginning to be included as part of different cities’ amusement, sales, and, in some cases, even utilities tax.

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

Central Communist governments are bad for your health, wealth, life, and don’t work.
Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, and the other Bolshevik hydra-heads looted millions, lived like kings the remainder of their lives, and stuffed hundreds of millions into Europe’s Zionist’s vaults who’d bankrolled them to oust the Tsar and takeover of the 1917 Russian revolution. 10155281_461153860682070_1662322543_n

The killing of an estimated 140 + million men, women, and children circa 1917-1944 followed.

Ever read about that in your history books?

Know that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote two volumes about these killers more than a decade ago that has been blocked from English translation ? Reason: Descendants of the Bolshevik financiers still run the financial puppet show. They don’t want countries they’re in the process of attempting to take down to put a face on a true enemy. (America’s Constitution was a toughie for them. Hence their use of Administrative law that was written into the Environmental Protection Act [nodded through in 1970 by a dozing congress] to later begin seizure of private property with EPA “rules and regulations” that carried fines and imprisonment for “violators” in federal courts.)

They’d rather the public not focus on a world socialist central government.

The lie and façade (why Castro, who had billions tucked away offshore, always wore fatigues) is an important part of these financial Wizards of Oz strategy. Doable when you control the world’s media (all propaganda outlets), money (estimated two-thirds of the planet’s worth) , bullets, guns, armies, governments (controlled with money these banksters print for strategic nations through their 150 central banks located in those countries) for the cost of paper, ink, and press-time; that, once printed or a ledger entry is made, is “loaned” to the country at face value and perpetual interest until corrupt politicians, officials, and confederates—placed inside the nation’s treasury and financial posts for an extra handful—bankrupt the nation and the country forfeits its natural resource collateral (gold, silver, minerals, oil, gas, land; you know, real money, real assets) to these bankers.

This global financial tribe does not look at other humans as human or have allegiance with any nation. Their juice is money, control, power and the perpetuation thereof. Their DNA and spiritual source are different. They are without heart, soul, conscience, and worship a different god.

Some have referred to them as “. . . misguided and suicidal.”

No, these bankers are neither misguided nor suicidal. Their funds are used to initiate chaos like the cross-water flotilla that’s ferrying fighting-age Muslim men (some with families) into Europe, and facilitating others entrance into the U.S. (We’re witnessing the attempted take-down of both.) Clandestine weapons will find their way into an unarmed Europe. Mexico, where citizens are (“lawfully”) unarmed, is the poster child.

The Paris “attack” was martial law run up a flag pole to see if the population would sit still for it long enough to keep protesters away from the Paris Climate Conference for the “. . .safety of the dignitaries and attendees.”

So far it’s working.

Convenient, that Paris “terrorist attack”.

And the summit? More

NEW WORLD ORDER—DEAD AHEAD

Also, Mark Carney, CEO Bank of England; Carlos Moedas, Secretary of State Portugal; ex Goldman men.

It would be the epitome of human folly to ignore the repetition of the same Wall Street financiers–

who have routinely inflicted financial chaos and abject poverty by debt upon the under-developed world for decades;

who now have leading roles in enforcing national IOU’s in Europe which they created and they are now devastating each nation;

who created and manage the $17 trillion debt of the United States;

who are additionally the putative recipients of hidden profit from their Federal Reserve Ponzi scheme that embezzles trillions of dollars from the U.S. government;

who permeate and use the U.S. Treasury and other government departments to profit their international business conglomerates;

who are additionally major lobbyists and the largest campaign contributors for political candidates.

_____________________________________________________________

The 2008 worldwide financial chaos started on Wall Street with a sudden realization mortgage backed securities (MBS) were junk bonds. Some pundits claim the bonds were fraudulently represented to European bankers. European banks holding these securities panicked from devalued reserves. (do you think some European bankers told some NYC bankers they would be swimming with concrete boots if they did not buy $700 billion of toxic bonds real quick ?) Loans ceased to be available. Construction ceased while taxes from manufacturers and retailers plummeted. Tax revenue could not cover government fixed expenses. Financial operations of European nations became managed by creditors to guarantee payments on sovereign debt while social programs and government salaries have been slashed. Economists without a PhD would say a bubble burst.

Is there evidence the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) have similarly created debt in lesser-developed nations for decades and the same financiers are now moving up to European nations? Is this the advance of the New World Order that has been touted by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) for 70 years? Is the $17 trillion debt of the United States handled by the same financiers and is it now in the initial stages of collection? Has the major funding for these financiers for the past 80 years come from profit concealed by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) which legally belongs to the U.S. government?

The answer is a collective YES.

The frustrating part is that the financiers received and hid the entire value of the U.S. debt when it was created that funded the conquest but they will also garner lavish $100 million annual remuneration when their fraudulent Ponzi scheme plunges the U.S. society into gut-wrenching poverty.

Ranchers Want our Public Lands for their Livestock, and want the Govt. to Stick It to Wild Horses and Taxpayers

16 Comments

By Vickery Eckhoff as published on AlterNet

Ranchers who graze their cows on federal lands are hellbent on taking wildlife and the public along with them for the ride.

What prompted them was a BLM request seeking voluntary reductions in livestock on public land suffering damage during the long drought. Faced with the loss of cheap forage for their cattle and sheep, the ranchers found a way to deflect the blame and economic burden.

Wild horses make an easy target; but that’s only as long as the BLM’s and the ranchers’ case for removal goes unexamined. The news media so far has done little probing into the issue—not in Utah, nor elsewhere ranchers lobby to get rid of wild horses.

Instead, the ranchers and BLM simply assert that the mustangs—and not privately owned livestock—are “overpopulating” and “overgrazing.” This claim is made without any scientific proof. Overgrazing as compared to what, exactly? Cattle and sheep? Neither the BLM nor the ranchers will provide data.

What is known is that the ranchers have nearly two million acres of grazing allotments in Iron and Beaver counties that overlap eight herd management areas (HMAs) where wild horses are protected. The four HMAs making up the Bible Springs Complex are just a fraction of the more than half-million acres where the wild horses (and private livestock) graze together under “multiple use” land policies. Another nearly million and a half acres of public lands provide further forage exclusively for cattle and sheep…(CONTINUED)

Governments cause inflation ? Not !

Mr. Hornberger chides the citizens of Argentina who fall for the government propaganda that businesses are responsible for inflation because they raise the price of goods and services in his recent article.  He then slams their schools for not educating the people.

Perhaps Mr. Hornberger should review the economic chaos of the United States and Europe and questionnew one whether it is the government or financial institutes that cause—and profit from—inflation. “Bought off” and corrupted are terms that come to mind to identify the cause from the implementer..

The methodology by which the Federal Reserve Board of Governors conceals $4 billion daily from the auction accounts of Treasury securities that are exclusively handled by the FRBNY—the accounts have never been audited or reported to Congress as required by law—has been documented. Ref. FEDERAL RESERVE HEIST. The lengthy mathematical analysis of the Fed’s Ponzi scheme that dates from Rothschild’s “loaning” to rulers of centuries past to reveal the inherent national bankruptcy of their scheme is available. Ref. RIP OFF BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE.

The use of that money to fund the New World Order using the World Bank and International Monetary Fund has been theorized. Ref. FUNDING THE NEW WORLD ORDER. The embezzlement of the Treasury auction funds by the FRBNY and FRBOG has been brought to the attention of the United States government. Ref. AMENDED COMPLAINT—WHISTLEBLOWER SUIT.

The “end goal” of the cabal has been stated in internal memos to be the collection of the $17 trillion National Debt of the United States.  Greece and Cyprus are but two available examples of their collection methods.

And still Mr. Hornberger is unaware of the future tragedy and demise of the U.S. while he belittles the economic knowledge of the Argentina people.    The academic centers of the U.S. {that must groom economists for future employment with the largest employer of economists–the Fed and the banks—and who also receive largess from them} have done a great job in hiding the perfidy of the Fed.
