The socialist plan to enslave the American people is nearly complete. The final three major hurdles faux President B. Hussein Obama and his army of czars need to totally destroy our nation are: 1) Internet control; 2) Gun controls and 3) Food controls. I consider this a war on three fronts, each being of equal importance.
World-wide food supplies are in bad shape making this year possibly the most important one for home gardeners – ever. Rising oil prices have made non-organic fertilizers very expensive since petroleum products are the base of most fertilizer and insecticides. Getting food to users has also been negatively impacted by rising oil prices.
Topping everything is our own government’s passage of the “HR 2749 2009 Food Safety Enhancement Act.” That Act, now law, will eventually curtail and control agricultural production, mainly among America’s farmers but extending all the way to little home gardens. America, once known as the bread basket of the world is now facing food shortages. Those shortages have not been caused by drought, flooding or any other natural disaster but have instead been brought on by government’s intervention in the production and distribution of food commodities.
Why is our own government so vitally interested in controlling the food chain? The answer, I fear, isn’t for food safety as they would have us believe. It is to gain more control and power over the citizens. This much power in the wrong hands could lead to abuses and even mass extinction of our populace as has happened to other peoples throughout history.
“History has shown us that Socialists, Communists, Islamists and Marxists, use food and the production of food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and control. Hitler himself said that using food as a weapon was ‘a beautiful instrument . . . for maneuvering and disciplining the masses,’” according to the Kingdom Studies blog.
The same blog continued: “Stalin and Hitler used food to destroy internal opposition to their policies of ‘change.’ They used it to reward accomplishment, punish failure and establish the class distinctions of their ‘new orders.’ In Germany the ‘warrior caste’ of the armed forces received the fattest ration cards, skilled and essential workmen the next. Down at the bottom came prisoners and the Jews. Ration cards that gave the owner the right to more food were used to give workmen incentives to seek promotion, to increase their output. Supplies were suddenly cut down (regardless of the amount stored) to scare the population into believing the situation serious, or extra rations were suddenly granted to boost morale.”
View a full-size photo of a 1935 Chicago newspaper devoted almost exclusively to the man-made “famine” in the Ukraine. Note that the “famine” killed by some accounts, 23 million people, most of whom were farmers who were deprived of their own production by government. (When the photo appears in your browser window, click it again to enlarge it to full size.)
Many won’t believe our own government would do that to us. How can we think that considering the federal government has been for years paying certain farmers to NOT grow certain foods? So we must wonder, if the government doesn’t intend to use food shortages as a means of control, why was HR 2749 passed just before Congress took off for the summer recess? Why was this important legislation rushed through in the dark of night, so to speak?
Few even knew about this bill because the public’s attention was fastened on the battle over National Health care, so HR 2749 was rushed through to passage using the same impetus of ‘urgency’ and fear that was used to get the Stimulus bill shoved through, with no public input or comments allowed, and done just one day before the summer recess. And, of course, media silence.
Touted under the same guise of being “for the children”, this Communistic takeover of food and food production was done under the auspices of ‘food safety’ – using the recent salmonella outbreaks caused by peanut butter and spinach as the springboard for nationalization. And apparently, we applaud the notion that giving government total control of our nation’s food supply, from farm to fork – as a good thing.
In HR 2749, EVERY form of food production will be monitored, regulated and controlled at all levels by the federal government under the leadership of a new Food Safety Czar. Yep, you read that right, yet ANOTHER Czar, accountable to no one except faux President B. Hussein Obama. Read more about the Czar HERE.
Once word began to leak about HR 2749, the main-stream media (MSM) began hailing the passage of the Bill in the House as a great step toward helping America have better food safety standards. America already HAS the best safety standards in the world, but that is not good enough for the Marxist/Socialist/Progressive Democrat bureaucrats. In their eyes, the GOVERNMENT must regulate and control it all. And this bill does exactly that. The bill requires every entity, whether it be an individual, business, church organization, homeless shelter, or home gardener to register annually with a new federal food bureau.
Read about the bill HERE.
“This bill proposes greater FDA regulatory powers over the national food supply and food providers, namely granting it the authority to regulate how crops are raised and harvested, to quarantine a geographic area, to make warrant-less searches of business records, and to establish a national food tracing system. Concurrently, the bill would impose annual registration fees of $500 (or more) on all facilities holding, processing, or manufacturing food and require that such facilities also engaged in the transport or packing of food maintain pedigrees of the origin and previous distribution history of the food,” according to the Kingdom Studies blog,
That’s right. You want to plant a garden in your back yard? YOU will soon be required to register with the new Food Safety Czar before you will be allowed to grow any food on your own property because it has to be “traced.” If you get approval you will be required to purchase only government approved seed stocks.
