    ANOTHER CLOSURE: One of the Largest Chicken Producers in the U.S. Announces Tennessee Plant Shutdown
    By Jim Hoft

    Joe Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ is not working as planned… Or is it?

    One of the top ten largest vertically integrated chicken producers in the US, supplying a broad range of quality poultry products, announced that it will be shutting down one of its plants in Campbell County, Tennessee.

    According to WVLT-TV, George’s Inc.: Poultry and Prepared Foods announced it will close one of its food processing plants.

    The reason for the closure has not yet been disclosed, even the locals were surprised by the sudden decision.

    Campbell County Mayor E.L. Morton told the WVLT-TV that he’s doing his best to keep the plant open.

    “I have contacted the Tennessee Economic and Community Development staff to request assistance in keeping the plant open or facilitating a sale to another operator,” Morton said.

    The closure of the plant would imperil the livelihoods of nearly 200 of the company’s employees during a time of record-high inflation and the cost of everything is way up, according to Western Journal.



    “I have requested Governor Lee’s assistance as well. My primary concern is for the welfare of the dedicated workers who have been the backbone of this operation. Our prayers go out to them as well as our very best efforts to keep them employed in Campbell County,” Morton added.

    George’s Inc’s plant closure in Campbell County, Tennessee is another blow to the US food market.

    George’s Inc. is a chicken processing company with plants in Arkansas, Missouri, Virginia, and Tennessee. The corporate offices are in Springdale, Arkansas.

    Last year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that George’s Inc. plant in Edinburg, Virginia was out of compliance with federal regulations after more than 2,500 chickens were found dead on the plant grounds, The Northern Virginia Daily reported.

    “A majority of the dead chickens had been left in trailers overnight on May 6, 2020, at the George’s Inc. plant in Edinburg, according to the reports. Some of the dead chickens were on trailers that arrived at the plant the morning of May 7, the reports state,” the news outlet reported.

  • How Bad Will the Food Shortage Get?
    https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2022/06/27/food-shortage-2022.aspx?v=1656337958

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE

    • -It’s becoming increasingly clear that severe food shortages are going to be inevitable, more or less worldwide, and whatever food is available will continue to go up in price
    • -The cost of agricultural inputs such as diesel and fertilizers is skyrocketing due to shortages — caused by a combination of intentional and coincidental events — and those costs will be reflected in consumer food prices come fall and next year
    • -Mysterious fires, alleged bird flu outbreaks and other inexplicable events are killing off livestock and destroying crucial infrastructure. Since the end of April 2021, at least 96 farms, food processing plants and food distribution centers across the U.S. have been damaged or destroyed
    • -The global food price index had risen 58.5% above the 2014-2016 average as of April 2022, due to a convergence of post-pandemic global demand, extreme weather, tightening food stocks, high energy prices, supply chain bottlenecks, export restrictions, taxes and the Russia-Ukraine conflict
    • -Combined, all of these factors set us up for guaranteed food shortages, food inflation and, potentially, famine in some places, so now is the time to prepare

  • The thing with these fires is that there will have to be a forensic investigation of all of them, probably. If they were set deliberately, that will inevitably come to light. There will have to be an investigation, law enforcement agencies will get involved, the insurance companies will probably not pay out, there will be lawsuits back and forth, etc. Most of that stuff is public information. So we'll have to know soon if these places are being targeted by arsonists.

    9/11 had all of that and the truth is still covered up. This has the same impetus behind it (ZOG/globalism) so the general public will probably never know.
    I accept Church teaching on Implicit Baptism of Desire.

    NO is a good Mass.
    Not an ironic signature.

  • Gosh, what will we do for food?

    Just in time, Gates has the answer!  Frankenfood!

    When he is asked if he eats that stuff, 

    he says "absolutely" and then shakes his head "no."
