Food Fight All About Control
Kissinger: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”
US strategy deliberately destroyed family farming in the US and abroad and led to 95% of all grain reserves in the world being under the control of six multinational agribusiness corporations...Cargill Grain Company; Continental Grain Company; Cook Industries, Inc; Dreyfus; Bunge Company; and Archer Daniels Midland – all US-based companies.
The US long-term strategy was to dominate the global market in grain and agriculture commodities, as outlined in the early 1970s by Richard Nixon. This policy coincided with taking the dollar off the gold exchange standard in August 1971 to make US grain exports competitive in the rest of the world. However, in order for the US to become the world’s most competitive agribusiness producer, it had to replace traditional American family-based farming with the now-widespread huge “factory-farm” production. In other words, traditional agriculture was systematically replaced with agribusiness production through changes in domestic policy. For example, domestic farm programs that had previously protected smaller farm incomes were phased out during Nixon’s term in office. This policy was then exported to developing countries in a bid to make US agribusiness more competitive and to get a hold into foreign markets
And now they want all the farmland to control what is produced and what you will be allowed to eat. (18 min)
Dutch farmers sent a clear message: “You want our land? ..TAKE THIS!” (3.5 min)
Where is the US news on these protest.
Canada is another case.

These are really shameful and ridiculous times in Canada under the administration of Justin Trudeau's Liberal government. And you can hardly finish mentioning the atrocities of this current government of Canada. You know, I bet even the Liberals' followers never really thought the state of the country could get this worse. First, it was this World Economic Forum globalists pleasing Liberals trying to force everyone to take a series of vaccines that has reportedly been having very dangerous side effects, and now, these guys are attempting to sabotage the food supply across the country. Apparently, Justin Trudeau would continue to steal away and mercilessly put a roof over the freedom of the people of Canada, destroying our quality of life, and now in a rather horrific manner, this guy is going to implement his crazy plans aimed at reducing food production in Canada. And you know, it's just really insane; I mean, just how exactly did we get to this point in Justin Trudeau's Canada?.
Isn't it interesting that the WEF global leaders club are all driving the same agenda? Link worth a read.
.. what we are really proud of now with the young generation like Prime Minister Trudeau, President of Argentina and so on, is that we penetrate the cabinets… It is true in Argentina and it is true in France now… (Klaus Schwab)
And here's another interesting tidbit:
Three American corporations bought 17 million hectares of Ukraine’s best farmland
The Australian edition of The National Review writes that three large American transnational consortia bought up … 17 million hectares of Ukrainian agricultural land.For comparison: in the whole of Italy there are 16.7 million hectares of agricultural land. So it turns out that three American companies bought more useful agricultural land in Ukraine than there is in all of Italy.The entire area of Ukraine is 600,000 sq. km, 170,000 sq. km have been bought. Cargill, Dupont and Monsanto are the latter officially German-Australian, but with American capital. Their main shareholders are American Vanguard, BlackRock and Blackstone. BlackRock is a fund that manages $10 trillion in assets, Vanguard manages $6 trillion, Blackstone manages $881 billion.
Additionally, the West prepares to plunder post-war Ukraine with neoliberal shock therapy
Western governments and corporations met in Switzerland to plan harsh neoliberal economic policies to impose on post-war Ukraine, calling to cut labor laws, “open markets,” drop tariffs, deregulate industries, and “sell state-owned enterprises to private investors.”
But let's get back to the attack on farmers...
The green lobby want to kill all cattle because they fart too much (2.5 min)
"Nobody needs politicians or journalists or broadcasters. But everybody needs farmers...
The absurdity that farmers would buy expensive nitrogen fertilizer to only have it denitrify and become atmospheric nitrogen is a path to bankruptcy. The idea that cattle harm the atmosphere is equally absurd unless you add the caveat of industrial CAFO operations. However with proper management ruminant animals can improve ecosystems as they capture carbon. Here's an entire channel featuring many farmers who do so.
Here's an interesting recent conversation between two small cattle farmers in hot, dry Texas.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCr5m8Ute_0 (23 min) They raise hardy Texas Longhorn cattle, and compare their grass based system with the industrial grain based beef production.
So many cattle farmers in Texas are being forced to sell out. They're feeding hay in the middle of summer.
Greg has also been experiencing a drought, but his management style allows him to cruise through. He recently got some rain. (12.5 min)
The trick is regular movement as a mob. He moves his cows every 12 hours, twice a day, and moves his sheep every two days. He does this with a minimum of inputs...mostly single strand temporary electric fence.
I've featured Allan Savory's documentary Running out of Time | Documentary on Holistic Management (47 min) a few times. Anyone who doubts cattle can be used to restore damaged ecosystems needs to watch it. Believe your lying eyes.
So bottom line, cattle are not BAD for the environment, it is the industrialized corporate management of cattle (and other animals) that is damaging. So the idea of eating insects to help the environment is ridiculous. (1 min clip from first featured video)
TPTB are trying to spin the threat of the flea on the elephant of ecosystem destruction. Farmer's are not the real problem.
A good start at reducing global climate chaos would be to stop all our military activities.
The world’s largest sea-based war games (meaning the simulation of war) are held off the coast of Hawaii, called RIMPAC. Journalist Abby Martin, host of The Empire Files, Media Roots Radio, and the new Callin show Dosed, attended the games this year to report on what destruction the United States and its allies are simulating. The footage will be part of her upcoming new film, “Earth’s Greatest Enemy.”
- A new study says the US military is among the biggest climate change culprits
- The US military rivals countries like Sweden and Denmark in terms of emissions
- In 2017 alone the US military purchased about 269,230 barrels of oil
- Researchers say the military should be downsized to prevent catastrophe
However we are not downsizing...just the opposite.
Alex and Alexander at the Duran have been investigating and reporting on the latest in the Ukraine war (30 min), and the new threat of a war with China (16 min). So there's not even talk of downsizing and ending all these wars of choice.
I liked this photoshop shot that Humphrey posted in the EB this week
After all a picture is worth thousands (of millions) of words.
But instead of ending war and escalating conflicts, you take cold showers and eat insects...right.
How can the TPTB expect to pull this off? The same way they created the pandemic panic to control us. They use propaganda and mass formation. Have you ever seen the 90's movie, Wag the Dog? I think it does a good job describing the way the deep state and Hollywood work together to create desired narratives.
Someone has put together a wag the dog in Ukraine video.
So no doubt the propaganda machine is effective at shaping public perception. But how does that translate into mass formation?
Russell had a similar conversation with Dr Bernardo Kastrup - author of ‘Why Materialism is Baloney’ about how the mainstream media and intellectual elites shape our reality in a materialistic world and how science underwrites our politics

Make no doubt the war on farmers is a sham. The big culprits are ignored in order to drive farmers bankrupt and buy their land at bargain prices. This is clearly about control rather than effective true environment restoration. Don't buy in to the false narrative because that is the way the mass formation/hypnosis operates as Mattias explained above.
I look forward to your ideas, stories, and thoughts below.
