If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny. — Thomas Jefferson
I grew up at a time in American history where school children were taught that people in the Soviet Union could not grow food without the express permission of the government and we made fun of the Russians.
Now the United States is stating that its citizens may not grow food without the express permission of the government. The daily news media is replete with stories of government harassment against individuals attempting to grow their own food.
No Veggies for You
The USDA’s Rural Development Agency take pleasure in bullying the young and the handicapped as they are forbidding Rosie, a 4-year-old girl, from South Dakota, from planting green vegetables in an unused area outside her subsidized housing unit.
Rosie and her mom live on a fixed income disability payment of $628 per month. The garden vegetables growing just outside her backdoor was created to help provide a much needed boost to their food supply.
From Glendale, AZ., a posting on Phoenix’s permaculture message board revealed the following development in which a man cannot raise chickens nor can this resident possess food-bearing plants. Welcome to Agenda 21.
I just got notice that I must get rid of my 3 chickens, chicken coop and garden and remove unripe fruit from my orange tree since my lot is not zoned for agriculture. Yes, I got notified that my garden and any food bearing plants are not allowed. My orange tree can stay as long as I remove all the unripe fruit from it. I must rip up my garden and my grapevines. I live near 63rd and Kings.
The lady at neighborhood services said none of the above are allowed. I asked about the garden and grapevines and she said food bearing plants attract pests and rodents and are not allowed in residential areas of Glendale. Orange trees are allowed as long as the fruit is not allowed to ripen. All unripe fruit has to be removed and disposed of. I was told I could join a community garden if I want to grow my own food. I think Glendale is starting to get desperate for making money. She said the fine if I do not comply will be over $2000 per violation with up to six months imprisonment and community service.
My question to the City of Glendale is “What difference does it make?”
No Fresh Goats Milk for You!
Don’t ever let the authorities know that you feed your baby healthy homemade baby formula instead of the establishment’s cancer-causing, GMO-laced commercial formula.
Alorah Gellerson of Brooklin, Maine is experiencing federal persecution because she was discovered feeding fresh goats milk to her three-month old son, Carson.
Gellerson complied with all government demands by no longer feeding her baby goats milk and substituting GMO-laced milk. However, the authorities are still threatening to remove her son.
No Food for You America!
The lessons of history clearly demonstrate that dictatorial regimes will not hesitate to use food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and impose absolute autocratic control. Food can be withheld from the masses by preventing it from being grown and harvested, by contaminating it and rendering it unfit for human consumption or by simply preventing food from being distributed to a targeted population.
The two most notable examples of dictators using food a weapon in order to destroy the free will of their people comes from the regime of Stalin.
Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet-style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, an estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation when Stalin implemented his prescription of “hope and change” policies in order to eliminate the Ukrainian’s desire for becoming their own nation-state.
Upon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holdomor,” in which millions perished in only a two-year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production.
Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order (EO 13603), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended targets are not the countries of the Third World, but instead, the target is you and me.
With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO states:
e) “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.
(f) “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…”
This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…” If you thought that you and Fido were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.
How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic President or the next power-hungry President?
The term “all food storage facilities” includes your refrigerator, your pantry and even the very food in your cabinets as well as what is on your kitchen table. In short, anywhere you keep food is now under the control of the government and can be redistributed.
The government is getting us right where they want us in which they will control all food and, as a result, they will completely control us. And it is coming none to soon for them as we prepare to invade Syria and then Iran. Martial law will surely follow and food control will be the primary weapon used against Americans. More on the coming war with Syria and the impending martial law in the next part of this series.
