... food processing plants across the United States have been targeted repeatedly over the last two years.

Just this past weekend, there was a massive fire at an egg farm in Connecticut....

From FOX News:

Last spring, in March, at a press conference in Brussels, Joe Biden explained that the sanctions he was imposing against Russia, while morally necessary, were also going to cause food shortages around the world, including here in the United States. “It’s going to be real,” he said...

Then Biden continued, recounting a conversation he had with European allies. He told us all about it. When he met with the group, Biden said, they spoke about “how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.” That’s what Joe Biden said verbatim....

Strange disasters began to beset food processors all over the United States. In April, the next month, the headquarters of one of this country’s largest organic food distributors was destroyed in a fire. Cause unknown. The next month, in a single week, actually, two separate private plane crashes took out two separate food processing centers. One plane hit a General Mills plant in Georgia. The other plane hit a food plant in Idaho. By the way, back in February, a boiler explosion obliterated a potato processing plant in Oregon and so on....



Something’s Buggin' Tucker Carlson, Food Production Is a National Security Issue. Last Refuge, 30 January 2023:

This is a topic we have covered extensively, and it is great to see Tucker Carlson questioning the sudden alignment of various elements that are creating a very real food insecurity problem.

The #1 factor in the shortage of food production is the newly emboldened ‘western energy policy‘ and the impact energy has on everything from field (fertilizer) to fork (distribution). Other factors include government policy that blocks food development (Dutch, Irish and Sri Lanka Farmers), a sudden uptick in food facilities having major fires and damage, and a series of issues with the feed that goes into the production of proteins.

This is all happening as the advancement of insects as a more “sustainable” protein replacement is being advanced by the same western governments....

An interesting article in ZeroHedge Saturday [SEE HERE] draws attention to how the media can no longer try to ignore the created global food crisis....

You do not need to be a farmer to understand that nitrogen/phosphorus-based industrial fertilizer has been the reason why farm yields have generated massive amounts of food on a global basis.... Take those farming advancements away under the guise of climate change and you get Sri Lanka, Pakistan and now the African Continent....

Joe Biden, NATO, the G7, the European Union, the World Bank, USAID, and every western leader in the United States and Europe stated in early and mid 2022 there will be food shortages in 2023.

They did not say there might be shortages; their statements were emphatic, there will be shortages.... Then ask why not a single proactive step has been taken by any of the aforementioned institutions or governments to alleviate what they declare is a certainty. Why?...


Food, Fires, FASCAT, Fact Checkers, Fake News, Canada Free Press, 21 January 2023:

... Huff states that while working on his PHD, he came across a government document titled: “Food and Agriculture Systems Criticality Assessment Tool,” (FASCAT).

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States government established a policy to identify critical infrastructure, including food and agriculture production systems, to protect them from terrorist attacks....

Food and agriculture systems were identified as one of 18 critical infrastructures.... The FASCAT was used to document, evaluate, and compare 741 disparate complex food and agriculture systems across 39 states to determine their criticality. The objective of these assessments was to prioritize the allocation of threat mitigation resources to the most critical systems....

Huff states that In 2019, the FASCAT data went missing. He says that while studying the document he observed that it essentially provided: "A roadmap to attacking critical infrastructure in the United States."

Sobering Realities: Quotations on Planet Earth in the 21st Century:

The green revolution has won a temporary success in man’s war against hunger and deprivation; it has given man a breathing space. If fully implemented, the revolution can provide sufficient food for sustenance during the next three decades. But the frightening power of human reproduction must also be curbed; otherwise the success of the green revolution will be ephemeral only.”
- Norman Borlaug, winner of 1970 Nobel Peace Prize

The Coming War on Agriculture


The elephant in the room: unending population growth

No one is addressing the elephant in the room - that is, unending population growth.

The root cause of food scarcity is the growing demand for food resulting from unending population growth. Modern agriculture is a stopgap measure to temporarily increase food supply, not a permanent license to increase population exponentially. (See Borlaug's statement above.)

The issues of unending physical growth, population growth, mass migration, and ecological sustainability are inextricably intertwined. Unending population growth is the root cause of environmental degradation. In developing countries, population growth is driven by high fertility. In developed, Western countries, population growth is driven by mass immigration.

No mater what the cause, every nation has not only the right, but the responsibility to control its population numbers. The consequences of not doing so will be increased environmental degradation and decreased agricultural production per capita in those nations.
