Will You Panic Over Food Shortages?

How quickly would citizens panic over food shortages?

An invasion from a foreign army is about the last thing that we would expect, simply because the United States has a large, specialized defense force with the most sophisticated weapons in the world.

But where is that other army, almost 50 million strong, waiting to be motivated and triggered? This is truly a silent army. No one knows. It's anything but public knowledge. When this army erupts, it will be well armed; and it will spread across America like locusts. Few people will be prepared for such totally unexpected terror because there has never been anything like it in American history.

There will be little defense against this army and dangerous, mad mass.

Watch the documentary on the Battle of Stalingrad, which took place from 1942 until 1943 — about 23 months. Millions died. Those killed by gunfire by German and Russian army gunfire were the lucky ones. Many others who died either froze or starved to death. Some were reduced to eating horses and dogs and even their fellow man.

Nothing was mentioned in the film about any of the citizens having food stored for the battle. They must have known that a prolonged battle was about to take place, and they also knew that winter was coming — not just any winter, but a very harsh Russian winter.


Even though all populations have a basic knowledge of food storage, the American people, especially today, have access and the capability to store many months of very highly nutritional food. But I dare say they have very little or none.

Simply stated, most Americans by far believe that just because several generations have escaped war and famine in the American homeland, they will never suffer hunger and cold.

Well, it is a threat in our present world. Just look at those suffering after Hurricane Ida. Millions of people in a half dozen states without power, possibly with contaminated water, surely many without food, since grocery stores are closed and without power as well…

And yet, that's nothing compared to the more than 42 million people enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program as of April 2021. That means before any storm, and disruption, and illness, and lockdown, that 1 in 8 Americans are using food stamps to buy groceries.

How far do you have to stretch your imagination to think of these 42 million people as a "food stamp army?"

They certainly will become an army of terror, stealing and pillaging for food within just a few days after their food stamps are stopped for one reason or another. The food stamp program is the only thing holding off revolution and collapse.

Please remember that people in America who are getting free food stamps consider it something that they deserve as a right rather than a privilege because of their financial hardship or unemployment. This attitude will be very bad when the food stamp system fails, as it surely will as the worthless paper money piles up in the streets $3.5 trillion at a time.

With economic downturn comes government oppression. Economic panics, famine and social breakdown come about as a result of depreciation and devaluation of a paper currency. Few get this direct connection, but it is a direct cause just as night follows day. It's happening now!

The populace has been conditioned to have the goal of accumulating a worthless middleman — cash — instead of hard assets and commodities. For now, this middleman can still gain us access to commodities, goods and services, but for how long?

Prepare now

The next step in the plan to control you is happening now. With one hand, they are destroying cash itself. With the other, they are slowly destroying the notion of where your income is derived from, or that it is even yours at all. Witness our high percentage of GDP that now comes from government, the massive growth of entitlements like food stamps and of course the attempted and probably continuing takeover of healthcare by government-regulation and corporatist interests.

The infrastructure bill (or as I like to call it, the "woke-frastructure" bill) may put people to work rebuilding our roads and bridges, yet what the White House will not tell you — because they don't want you to know — is that the more people who go on the dole (unemployment, food stamps, public works and urban renewal projects) the more people go under the thumb of the state.

If you are trained to think your income, your health and your rights come from the government, you are conditioned that you are no longer free to choose anything. How you live, where you live, what you say, what you spend money on can then all be decided by your government.

While a record number of Americans are on food stamps, the top 1 percent of income earners is taking a larger share of total income. President Biden has seized on this and uses it to give emphasis to class warfare. This will degenerate into a hot revolution that will end badly for Biden and his elite handlers. The underground becomes a way of life for survival.

Before the Army strikes, buy three months of food stock

Most people are not averse to the idea of preparedness, but many have trouble taking the first steps in the right direction. Starving people will break into stores and loot food, leaving you with nothing if you are not ready. Yes, this can happen in America. We are mere minutes from the Third World without electricity.

This means food supply is the greatest Achilles' heel of the American populace. Most homes store less than one week's worth of food items at any given time. And grocery stores with their vaunted "supply chains" have maybe a day extra more than they need. That will spoil or be gone quickly.

The average person needs between 2,000 and 3,000 calories per day to maintain sufficient energy for survival. Multiply that out if you will be unable to visit a store, or if you have no power for a week or more.

Start with 2,000 calories per day per person. Bulk foods can be purchased cheaply (for now) and can at the very least provide sustenance during emergencies. A 20-pound bag of rice, for instance, can be had for less than $15 and provides about 30,000 calories, or 2,000 calories per day for 15 days for one person. Supplement with beans, canned vegetables and meats, honey for sugar, or freeze-dried goods, and you will be living more comfortably than 90 percent of the population.

Food stockpiling is one of the easiest and most vital measures a person could take. Yet, sadly, it is one of the last preparations on people's minds.

Yours for the truth,

Why Is There Suddenly An Extremely Severe Shortage Of Workers All Over The World?

The unprecedented employment crisis that we are watching unfold around the globe is so bizarre that it could have been pulled straight out of an episode of the Twilight Zone.  For the very first time in recorded history, there is an extremely severe shortage of workers in nations all over the planet. 

When this shortage first started to emerge earlier this year, I thought that it was very strange, because 2020 had been a year when we had seen unemployment absolutely skyrocket in the U.S. and other western nations.  In fact, somewhere around 70 million Americans filed claims for unemployment benefits last year.  Not too long ago we had vast hordes of people that were out of work, and now we are suddenly facing the greatest labor shortage in history?

Something is not adding up.
