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.

U.S: Hormone-Disrupting Weed Killer Taints Tap Water for Millions in Corn Belt

Environmental Working Group (EWG) | November 14, 2018

WASHINGTON – Seasonal spikes of atrazine – a weed killer that can disrupt hormones and harm developing fetuses – contaminate drinking water in corn-growing areas of the Midwest and beyond, according to an analysis of federal records by the Environmental Working Group.

Environmental Protection Agency data show that in some Corn Belt communities, atrazine levels can spike three to seven times above the legal limit in late spring and early summer. But by avoiding water testing during peak periods, some water utilities stay in compliance with drinking water regulations – and don’t have to tell customers they were exposed to a hazardous chemical in their tap water.

“Our investigation found that nearly 30 million Americans have atrazine in their tap water,” said Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., EWG senior science advisor for children’s environmental health. “But many may never know, because outdated federal policies allow utilities to test for atrazine before or after the spike.”  READ MORE HERE

The Geoengineering End Game

By Ethan Jacobs, J.D.

Years of research have revealed that the purpose of ongoing international geoengineering operations is to control the weather to create droughts and artificial scarcity of water and food (planned “problem”).  From the resulting global crisis, chaos and fear (planned “reaction”) of people not having adequate water and food due to “climate change,” a totalitarian world government (planned “solution”) will be perpetrated under the veil of “sustainable development” (See United Nations’ Agenda 21 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development).  Speaking of year 2030:

According to UN-endorsed projections, global demand for fresh water will exceed supply by 40% in 2030, thanks to a combination of climate change, human action and population growth.

The secondary purpose of chemtrails is to make the population sick by causing individuals to ingesting toxins such as aluminum and possibly viruses.

The Geoengineered Cape Town Drought

The Geoengineered Cape Town Drought is a test-run, a preview of what the rest of us can expect in the coming years.

Day Zero is looming for Cape Town.  According to the latest estimates May 11th is when the city’s water supply will be turned off, leaving four million residents to line up for water rations at one of 200 points across the city.

Cape Town is in the middle of an unprecedented drought and rainfall has been far below expected levels for the past three years. Residents are being asked to limit use to 50 liters a day (13.2 gallons), which is less than a third of the average daily water use in Britain.

In 2013, farmers in South Africa contacted Geoengineeringwatch.com and reported that geoengineering was decimating their land, stating:

Our air is acrid and dry and my crops have failed. My animals are on their last legs. We are being forced to take out loans via the Landbank, thus enslaving us and also forcing us to buy GMO seeds. The North West has been declared a Disaster Area.

NASA satellite images and videos posted by concerned individuals also confirm that South Africa is a target of intense geoengineering.

Without any mention of geoengineering, National Geographic states that “climate change” may have exacerbated Cape Town’s drought and warns that much of the world is at risk of a similar situation.  Mexico City, Melbourne, Jakarta, Sao Paulo, and California are listed as potential water shortage victims of “climate change.”

Austrailia: Banks to use NLIS to spy on cattle producers

Memo: Many of you joined together to oppose the USDA’s NAIS ploy. Prior to our USA battle with the federales the Australians  were fighting the same battle, but they lost the war bigger and faster than the US sisters.  The Australian government has always been the “view into the future” for us.  Their NAIS is NLIS – National Livestock Identification Scheme.  With hearings and political battles USDA realized that over 90% of livestock owners refused to sign up for NAIS so they threw up their hands and said — we give up — NAIS is dead, ended, over.  Yet, as most expected, it raised an ugly finger in the air and now we  have ADT.  ADT is following the same path as NAIS and NLIS, but  slower, one state at a time.  Texas, of all states is leading  the charge in animal ID compliances, testing, and enforcements.      

The fight is still on. Our unfriendly-bureaucratic-predator government is adding the control rules one at a time, one state  at a time — hammering away toward NAIS.  It now is still federal, working under the radar as quasi state rules.

Notice the Australian cattlemen’s plea (article below) to be free again from the ignorance of NLIS.  Once in the  government’s claws, seldom do they release the prey. Darol

NOTE:
NAIS:.. National Animal Identification System…U.S.

ADT:…Animal Disease Traceability

NLIS:.. National Livestock Identification Scheme… Austrailia

ABA Press Release

Banks to use NLIS to spy on cattle producers – ABA calls on Minister Joyce to intervene.

Meat and Livestock Australia has admitted it has commissioned consultants to develop a system that allows financial institutions to automatically access producers’, lot feeders’ and processors’ NLIS accounts to monitor livestock transactions.

The admission was made to former Australian Beef Association Director, John Carter.

It would seem MLA/NLIS is seeking to develop a user-pay system that automatically notifies a financial institution when stock are moved onto or off an NLIS Account/PIC – for purchase, sale or slaughter. Prospective users of the service are banks, stock and station agencies and any other party, such as an investor, prepared to pay for the service.

“This is an outrageous abuse of trust by MLA,” Australian Beef Association Director Brad Bellinger said.

“NLIS was imposed on cattle producers on the understanding it was needed for market access and bio-security. More

Over  $144,635,000 of cattle will be affected

There is plenty of water to share; the Tribe claims it is keeping the water for sucker fish

This will create a total area impact of over $516 million
