  • This article was sent to me this morning. I'd like to see what those who are more informed think of his opinion regarding a coming rise in food prices or scarcity in the coming months here in the US due to the floods. I thought I'd pass it along so that those inclined can take a look into their larders. 1MT (The author appears to be an atheist)

    I’m not one who gives much credence to doom ‘n gloom predictions like this one.  But this is serious.
    Quote
    At this moment, millions of acres of farmland are underwater, and that is not going to change any time soon. When the flood waters came, they moved so rapidly that they literally picked up pigs and baby calves and carried them along. Roads, rail lines and entire small towns have been washed away, and so even if farmers had something left to sell they couldn’t get it to market anyway.

    Just last Friday morning I gave a ride to an executive based out of Omaha, and I kidded her about the flooding in Nebraska.  She said, “It’s no laughing matter.  Omaha hasn’t flooded — yet — but it is essentially a little island in the middle of a state-sized lake.”
    And Tyler concludes with this:[/size]

    Food production in the United States is going to be way, way down this year. Prices at the grocery store are immediately going to start rising, and they are going to keep rising all year long. So now is the best time to stock up and to get prepared for what is coming. Our breadbasket has been absolutely devastated, and things are only going to get worse. The mainstream media seems to think that this is just another in a long string of major natural disasters that has hit our nation in recent years, but the truth is not so simple. This disaster is going to have a dramatic impact on our ability to grow our own food, and even if everything went perfectly from this point forward we are talking about a recovery that would take many, many years.

    I believe him, and so should you.  We often talk at this here back porch of mine about SHTF scenarios.  This, I think, is going to be one of them.
    So get out to the supermarket — now — and start laying in food supplies.  You all know which kinds to get:  stuff that has a lo-o-o-ng storage life, because there’s no telling just how long it’s going to take to recover from this.
    Sure, we’ll probably just import foods from overseas;  but it’ll be costly, and if you think that foreign countries won’t use this catastrophe against us politically, I have a New York bridge to sell you.
    Most importantly:  if you’re on a fixed income (as I am), your dollar is going to buy less and less food as prices start to climb.  I have about  three months’ supply of food on hand, and that is never going to be enough.  I already started over the past weekend, and I’m going to be doing it daily from now on.
    So get going.
    Oh, and I don’t think I need to remind anyone here about keeping your ammo lockers stocked, do I?[/size]

  • Time for a counterpoint …

    I have not time to go look up the data, but for those who want REAL numbers the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service is the place to go.

    I’ve spent a lifetime working in agriculture until 2 years ago when I left a dairy farm to help my now 97 year old mother (who still lives on her farm, the land is leased out).  I currently work part time for a funeral home and part time for the Red Cross teaching First Aid and CPR, as well as getting my Master Gardener certification from the Cooperative Extension Service.

    Tracing the presented “information”, from Kim at kimdutoit blog, who copied it from a Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge, who copied it from a Michael Snyder at some site called “End of the American Dream”, I have to wonder how much time any of them have ever spent on a tractor seat, milking cows, feeding calves, feeding hogs, combining cereal grains, bailing hay or putting up silage, or anything having to do with actual food production and the challenges involved with that, which are plentiful on a good day

    While there will certainly be some impact on food prices, the flooding in the mid-west will hardly cause severe shortages, skyrocketing prices, or anything approaching the apocalypse.  That is just plain ridiculous in my humble opinion, and my opinion is not uninformed.

    The United States already has the lowest food cost in the world (measured as a percent of income) https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/12/this-map-shows-how-much-each-country-spends-on-food.  The United States exports over 20% of the food grown here (or used to until the current administration started the various trade wars) https://www.fas.usda.gov/data/percentage-us-agricultural-products-exported.  There defiantly is some excess production capacity and there are 23,433,684 acres of farm land enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (as of September 2017) which could be brought back into production.

    Nebraska and Kansas are major feed lot states but several other non-flooded states have substantial capacity.  In 2018 the U.S. exported 1.53 billion (with a B) pounds of beef, which was a 14.7% increase from 2017, another “reserve” that could be held back for the domestic market.  Over 400,000 acres of California farm land has been fallow because of the drought and may be coming back with the drought seemingly at an end.  The U.S. is nearly swimming in excess milk and none of the top dairy states are in the flood areas https://www.dairybusiness.com/top-ten-milk-producing-states-in-may-2018 ... you might have to eat cheese instead of soybeans, which would be a good thing from my perspective.  Finally, let’s not forget lentils.  Over half of the world’s lentils are grown in Canada (so, close by); The U.S. is #4 in the world, with the majority of our production in Montana, Washington, and Idaho, most of which is exported.

    No, I don't think we are on the brink of famine here.

  • He made jokes about the flooding to a Nebraska native? Sounds like a fool or an opportunist.

  • Nebraska is in our prayers.  Very little media coverage.  Where we live, the media and state is obsessed with marijuana which was to sneak in the passing of the assisted suicide bill that was introduced by “catholic”.  
    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)

    1st Mansion,

    I'm one who thinks this food price rise will continue. This time, because of the following reasons.

    1. The German Catholic mystic, Alois Irlmaier predicted it.
        He gave a roll-out of major trends before WWIII and the Great Chatisement.
        After the wave a refugees, he called a "time of strangers", there came several rounds of inflation.
        The world has been living with the artificial refugee problem for four years now.  The next inflationary trend is coming.

    2. Chem-trail weather modification & 5G RF implementation
       Since 2008, we've been getting "salted" by U.S. Air Force's chem-trail jets. It is so common,we ignore it.
       It's being used to modify our weather, and put the climate in a state of chaos.
       In addition, there's an argument to be made of the cumulative effect of micro-particles of aluminum in the soil.
       In CA there have been studies showing a drastic change in soil pH, which ruins the soil's fertility.
       Not to mention that Aluminum is a neuro-toxin.

    Here's an educational presentation on the subject of climate collapse:

    Just remember, Starvation is a mainstay of judeo-masonic treachery. 
    I think you know some of the big famines: Ireland, Germany, Russia... etc,
    It's an easy way to kill millions.

    So for the jew-trolls and marranos viewing this site, Our Lord and St. Paul were dead right. 
    You ARE a "race of vipers" and "the enemies of all men until the end of time".

    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi
