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.

1779142_741581802541570_1637925020_nLiving in a rural agricultural community, I have witnessed first hand the devastation to the land and water from industrialized agriculture.  The other thing I have noticed over the years, is the dwindling numbers and kinds of wildlife, both large and small.  It is not uncommon to see major fish kills in rivers, lakes and streams, dead birds and small animals in large numbers around the fields of gmo crops.  The continual spraying of toxic chemicals to grow what is widely recognized as crops not fit for human consumption, is not to be stopped.

It only gets worse from here

Having done several Whistleblower’s episodes on my blogtalk channel “TS Radio”, the news that Sonny Perdue will most likely be the new Secretary of Agriculture does not come as good news.  Perdue, who is funded and backed by major bio-piracy companies most notably Monsanto, and others who are in the process of overtaking agriculture for profit, should come as no surprise.

Somebody save us! The USDA is partnering with DuPont!

If the idea of DuPont and the USDA teaming up doesn’t send chills down your spine, I guess not much will.  But here in a nutshell, the global threat to the food supply…..in other words….the industrialization of food production…..is somehow now at risk from new and resistent strains of e-Coli.  Damn! wonder how that happened?  This is where the groundwork for more invasive and pointless regulations will begin.  First you create a crisis…..

DuPont and USDA team up to tackle emerging food safety threat

By Rory Harrington, 04-Aug-2010

A new joint project between DuPont Qualicon and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) aims to develop testing to detect hard-to-identify strains of E.coli that are not regulated and have been causing increasing instances of food contamination.

The US-based company said tests have already been developed for E. coli O157:H7, the type of shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) most frequently associated with global food contamination outbreaks. But the company will partner the USDA after identifying a gap that currently exists in assays to detect other strains. DuPont characterised the non-0157 types as an “emerging threat to the food supply”. More

The Bankers Manifesto of 1892: We are the “lower order” of people

The plan for over taking agriculture has long been in progress.  Today, we see these plans culminating as one administration after another has attempted to seize agricultural lands, livestock and other property under various plans.  In fact, the last ten years have seen the greatest efforts to not only seize food production and supply, but also to regulate what we eat and our rights to choose what we consume.

In addition to this, those same bankers from so long ago determined that foreclosing on mortgages, collecting on created debt and driving the economy into the ground were imperative to their end goal.  The idea that once a person was deprived of their home they would go along with anything, appears to have become a reality. 

We are disposable; an unnecessary burden for the elite who view us as the “lower order” of people.   Marti

“We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance. More

Mystery Crop Damage Threatens Hundreds Of Acres

White dots appeared over all plants in a wide area of Tennessee….and baby birds were dead in their nests…..what could have done this??? Can you say CHEMTRAILS?  How else can this be accounted for?  Even the woman being interviewed alludes to the idea that it had to be “something in the air”. 

From:  WREG.com Channel 3 Memphis

  • Small dots appear to “burn” through leaves
  • Area affected is along Tipton and Shelby County line
  • Farmers afraid they may lose their entire crop

(Memphis 6/1/2010) A mystery is unfolding across MidSouth farms.

Something is killing crops, trees, even weeds and nobody can explain why.

Farmers are scratching their heads and some are worried their crops may be lost to the mysterious plague.
