The Common Sense Show
by Dave Hodges
We are living in a time of unprecedented craziness and life-threatening danger. Jade Helm Special Operations forces are practicing to extract political dissidents under the unconstitutional authority of the NDAA. Further, Jade Helm conventional military units are “practicing to put several communities under martial law. In addition, America is witnessing unprecedented troop and military equipment movements throughout the country.
Despite these serious nature of these events, there is a more insidious and dangerous threat that looms over the American people.
President Obama Has Nationalized All American Food and Food Production
Through Executive Order 13603, Obama has granted himself the authority control all food and now has the unique ability to starve America into submission as it relates to his handing the country off to the bankers in the name of perpetuating the New World Order and ridding the planet of the weak and those who will not willingly go along with the intentional destruction of America. Here are some of the key provisions of EO 13603 and its impact on the control of the American food supply.
With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 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.
It is important to assess how devastating this Executive Order could prove to be to the American people though a brief assessment of America’s food vulnerability.
A Snapshot of America’s Food Vulnerability
Almost beyond belief, a full 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase typically buy cheap, unhealthy food and still just have enough to feed their children. The price of food continues to quickly out-pace the paychecks of most middle class families. For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $3.88 per pound! There are nearly 50 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in various degrees of distress. Just over one out of seven Americans rely on obtaining food from various banks at one point or another and these food banks are beginning to experience record shortages.
In a case of “defend the nation and starve”, military families are feeling even more stress from not being able to obtain sufficient quantities of food as 25% of America military families require outside assistance in getting enough to eat. What does this say about an administration which uses our soldiers to defend the nation and then kicks them to the curb by denying their VA health benefits as the government also starves their families because they cannot survive on what we pay our soldiers? This is disgraceful, but it is the Obama fundamental transformation of American way!
America Has No Way to Keep Up with Food Inflation
In calculating the overall inflation rate, the government does not count the price of food. However, there are several reliable food inflation figures and the food inflation rate is estimated to be between 19% to 22%.
In the article, “Food Price Inflation Scares the Fed” the commodity food costs were exploding on the upside. Calculation of the food inflation rate, given the lag in commodity costs impacting prices on grocery store shelves, we find that the annual U.S. food inflation rate is now running at a staggering +22% and the rate is increasing with no end in sight to the escalation.
The real and specific cause for food inflation is the low-end $940 billion of additional monetary stimulus from the United States Federal Reserve’s quantitative (bail out) easing over the last 18 months. No economy can sustain the value of its money, when currency floods the market like it has during the present administration. The net effect is that the value of your money has been seriously eroded thanks to such misguided practices as the bail-outs.
According to the New York Times, the typical American family is now worth 36% less than it was worth only 10 years ago!
Shockingly, one out of every six men, ranging in ages from 25 to 54, are not employed. Median family income in the United States is 7% lower than it was in 2000. The United States is now in 19th place in the world and falling. There is no way that the majority of American families can keep pace with food inflation as the wages of Americans are now inversely correlated with the rising food prices. This is a prescription for disaster. The most vulnerable to starvation within the present economic climate are the children as an amazing twenty six percent of all children are living below the poverty level. And we certainly cannot ignore the fact that 50 million Americans are on some form of Federal Food Stamps. With these kind of distressing statistics, a significant number of Americans are vulnerable to politically motivated “food blackmail” in these times of economic distress.
Just how many Americans are vulnerable to “blackmail by starvation”? Nobody can be totally accurate in this estimation, however, the numbers listed in the above paragraphs provide a good starting point from which to estimate the risk. Given the numbers listed above (i.e. number of people on food stamps, food inflation coupled with the dismal condition of the economy), it is a conservative estimate to state that between 150-175 million Americans would be at risk for starvation, in less than one week, if food were not publicly available for any reason. By the way, FEMA states that the average American family only has 3 days of food on hand.
The Feds Have Been Preparing for the Coming Food Shortages Since 2008
As far back as 2008, I can find evidence that the government was attempting to stockpile as much survival food as possible. These events prompted prominent brokers and key media members to advise the public to begin storing food as long as six years ago in anticipation of what is about ready to happen.
In 2011, FEMA issued a “Request for information” (RFI), in which they inquired about the availability for 140 million emergency meal kits with a shelf life of 36 months along with blankets.
Under what conditions would you surrender yourself to an illegitimate authority that did not have your best interest at heart? Would you cross that line and willingly walk into a FEMA cam? Before the chorus of macho men answer with a sense of false bravado, please realize that you and anyone else would do whatever it took to prevent you and your family from starvation. Obama knows that and this is why we now have EO 13603 on the books.
Please keep in mind that Stalin used food to kill an estimated 20 million people in the Ukraine because the people demanded freedom. Executive Order 13603 promises to surpass these numbers when, not if, EO 13603 goes live.
Beginning in April of 2015, I have written over a dozen articles detailing how this administration plans to deal with the population. We are witnessing the wholesale conversion of stadiums, arenas, schools, closed malls and strip centers into FEMA camps. In many instances, the conversions have been rehearsed by groups like the National Football League.
THIS IS NOTHING NEW!
I would suggest that the readers review what I have written on the subject of FEMA camp conversions. Then I would advise all to make the needed preparations to survive what is coming and then find a way to protect your assets.
