58 food processing plants, farms, fisheries cattle farms and more have been destroyed.
From London to Yemen, there have been fires, poisoning avian bird flu, explosions and euthanasia that destroy the world’s food supply.
Over 5.1 million chickens have been killed, deer, pigs and cows. Of course, this is all a conspiracy theory and for us conspiracy theorists we’re told it’s a coincidence. Last month it was 24 fires, this month it’s 58. The billionaires are stocked up for years ready to watch us all starve.
If you grow food I suggest you plant a lot more NOW. Don’t take my warning with a pinch of salt, this is more likely to kill you than the vaccine.
Interesting to see the media call the food processing fires a “conspiracy theory”
There is growing concern farmers worldwide are reducing chemical fertilizer, which may threaten yields come harvest time, according to Bloomberg. The repercussions could be huge: Lower yields may exacerbate the food crisis.
There are alarming signs commercial farmers in top growing areas in the world are decreasing the use of essential nutrients — nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
Revealed last week, SLC Agricola SA, one of Brazil’s largest farming operations, managing fields of soybeans, corn, and cotton fields in an area larger than the state of Delaware, will reduce the use of fertilizer by 20% and 25%.
Ukraine cuts Russian gas to Europe, threatening energy supply
So without any provocation, Zelensky cuts off European Gas from Russia. This only harms us. But these are orders from the West. Fuel, oil and food are gone in 6 months. I beg you to listen and stop believing the media when they say everything is a conspiracy theory.
Kyiv cites “force majeure” to halt a third of Russian transited gas flow to Europe, while Gazprom says there have been no issues that would justify the move.
Gas from this connection will not be accepted into the transit system of Ukraine starting at 7 am on Wednesday, OGTSU said. Sokhrankovka accounts for almost a third of the Russian gas that transits through Ukraine to Europe – up to 32.6 million cubic meters per day – according to the operators.
[IAF: German energy ministers confirm their supply is as low as 2-3 weeks. Keep an eye on Europe.]
Russian gas conglomerate Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or any obstacles to continued transit of gas through a junction in Lugansk Region, the company said on Tuesday, after Ukraine’s operator OGTSU announced it would halt further deliveries starting May 11, due to the presence of “Russian occupiers.”
Gas Transit Services of Ukraine (OGTSU) declared force majeure on Tuesday, saying that it was impossible to continue the transit of gas through a connection point and compressor station located in the Lugansk area.
Folks I am also seeing the rumours about chickens dying via contaminated feed in Yemen,
Folks I am also seeing the rumors about chickens dying via contaminated feed in Yemen, only to blame ‘bird flu.’ At this time I cannot confirm these rumours even after trying but will share any new data.
Huge: India has banned wheat exports that the world needed without Ukraine:
Have long said to watch wheat —
India Bans Wheat Exports in Growing Wave of Food Protectionism
India prohibited wheat exports that the world was counting on to alleviate supply constraints sparked by the war in Ukraine, saying that the nation’s food security is under threat.
Exports will still be allowed to countries that require wheat for food security needs and based on the requests of their governments. All other new shipments will be banned with immediate effect
EVACUATE THE GRAIN
Nearly 25 million tonnes of grain stuck in Ukraine, says UN food agency
Nearly 25 million tonnes of grains are stuck in Ukraine and unable to leave the country due to infrastructure challenges and blocked Black Sea ports including Mariupol, a U.N. food agency official said on Friday.
“It’s an almost grotesque situation we see at the moment in Ukraine with nearly 25 mln tonnes of grain that could be exported but that cannot leave the country simply because of lack of infrastructure, the blockade of the ports,” Josef Schmidhuber, FAO Deputy Director, Markets and Trade Division told a Geneva press briefing via Zoom.
Schmidhuber said the full silos could result in storage shortages during the next harvest in July and August.
The Head of the WTO announced, “It would help the world if we could evacuate this grain (from Ukraine),” — Earlier this week, the head of the World Trade Organization told Reuters she was “seriously worried” about spiralling food prices and seeking solutions alongside other partners.
If Money Is Speech, CBDCs Should Be Tools for Freedom
There is no constitutional right guaranteeing that you can spend your money as you please. Although there should be, and there’s precedent for thinking that money is akin to speech and spending it (within the bounds of established law) a form of expression.
This particular problem has come to light as the U.S. government studies a potential central bank digital currency (CBDC). A digital dollar, as it is sometimes called, is essentially a way to make an internet-native version of cash and coins.
This article is excerpted from The Node, CoinDesk’s daily roundup of the most pivotal stories in blockchain and crypto news. You can subscribe to get the full newsletter here.
Central bankers, if they support CBDCs, often point to the greater control a state-run monetary ledger affords over microeconomic and macroeconomic policy. A digital dollar could help automate tax collection, streamline welfare payments and inform decisions around setting interest rates.
Like everything else in the internet age, CBDCs are about big data: State-run ledgers would give near-complete insight into how money is being spent in a country. In fact, Agustin Carstens, general manager of the “central bank of central banks,” the Bank for International Settlements, said:
“We don’t know who’s using a $100 bill today and we don’t know who’s using a 1,000 peso bill today.” With CBDCs, that would be possible, he noted.
That’s quite dystopian for anyone who thinks there ought to be a measure of financial privacy – the same privacy afforded today by physical cash. Further, because CBDCs are mostly just research projects at this stage, they invite a high degree of skepticism and conspiracy theories.
Namely, people are worried “Govcoins” could become tools for coercion or censorship.
“Should people be encouraged to eat the foods decided best for them, such as a plant or insect-based diet? CBDCs could do the trick. Should people be limited in how much they can spend per week on carbon-intensive purchases? CBDCs could help with that too,” N.S. Lyons, author of The Upheaval Substack, wrote last week in conservative-leaning digital mag City Journal.
It shouldn’t be controversial to say that governments want insight and oversight over monetary flows. They enact policies that degrade privacy and set limits around how money can be spent; often in service of the noble aim of combating terrorist financing and money laundering.
Foot-and-mouth disease detected in Indonesia; Australian livestock sector on alert
So the cattle next, because cattle are dirty! Soon there will be no protein and the UN will co. e in and save the day with their already prepared protein alternative, crushed grasshopper, mealworm and cockroaches.
Australian biosecurity officials are on high alert after reports of more than 1,000 cases of foot-and-mouth disease in Indonesia, with fears that a large multi-state outbreak here could cost the industry billions of dollars.
The Cattle Council of Australia on Friday said it had received advice that 1,247 cases of the contagious disease had been detected in four East Java provinces — Gresik, Lamongan, Sidoarjo and Mojokerto.
In a statement to members, the council said it understood Indonesia was in the process of preparing an emergency declaration and collecting samples to determine an appropriate vaccine.
“We are engaged with Indonesia and also working across our networks to establish the support that Australia and other global and regional organisations can offer to support a swift and effective response,” the council’s statement said.
“Indonesia is our closest neighbour with whom we share an incredibly important bilateral trading partnership. The proximity of Indonesia has major implications for our biosecurity system and disease-free status.”
Maine lobster industry fighting shutdown for ‘endangered whale’
Like the Canadian fishers and all the other food producers that have been regulated or shutdown since 2020 – in many cases there are fights going on in the courts. But what’s more significant is that all these legal battles flow from a calculated wave of shutdowns in disparate areas and industries, happening in concert, in a year while everyone was confused.
They shook up the nest and then threw a web over producers around the world.
Food Supply Shutdown : Deer, fish, pigs euthanized; crops not planted
An observing alien species would ask itself, “Why is humanity destroying ALL of their food sources?”
In this special Ice Age Farmer broadcast, Christian has a candid conversation about the overwhelming number of attacks on our food supply and animals. With crops unplanted and with more food facilities burning down, the media runs stories about “food fire conspiracy theories.” And it’s not just chickens — the state is also killing deer and fish in the name of stopping diseases. Start growing food now.
