I sincerely hope your family has a blessed Thanksgiving, complete with all the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie that you could eat. May you enjoy fellowship with those who are dearest to us.
If you are one of the remaining Americans who has a enough to eat, count your blessings! We Americans may not have many Thanksgivings left to celebrate under the Red, White and Blue!
A Nation of Plenty, Sort of….
As you prepared your feast, did you think about the fact that we in America throw away more food than many countries have an opportunity to eat? As you pulled your chair up to your Thanksgiving table, did you think about the fact that half the world goes to bed hungry? America has its shame in this area as well.
Since the end of WWII, most Americans have been blessed with plenty to eat, so much so, that we simply take our overflowing of Thanksgiving blessings for granted.
If you think an 800 number begging you to feed a hungry child is going to appear, you would be mistaken. However, there are people, who have power over us, who would like to make this the last Thanksgiving that America will celebrate as a Constitutional Republic. and to some extent, America is extremely vulnerable to being starved into submission by the bankers as a means of political control. As your family has the Thanksgiving football games on TV today, and you are bombarded by messages of “love your veterans” and aren’t we lucky to live in a land with such blessings, please consider the message of the picture contained in this graphic, or note the statistic listed below in relation to our land of plenty.
“Happy Thanksgiving! We Are Halfway To Being Starved Into Submission”
A Global Awakening
Brzezinski, one of the most hated and well-known globalists, recently lamented that there is a global awakening to the source of the tyranny on this planet and that “they” must accelerate their timetable for the completion of a global takeover. And the full-court press has subsequently been placed on humanity as we are under assault in ways never witnessed before.
One of the most popular methods of subjugation has to do with controlling who eats and who dies. Historically, food has been one of the most effective tools of subjugation.
Today as we contemplate our good fortune with our full plates and full bellies, wouldn’t it be ironic if we had to contemplate a future where millions were kept on the edge of starvation as a means of political control? Of course this could never happen in America, could it? Few people know that seven million Americans starved to death during the Great Depression in what could be called the Great American Holodomor.
The Historical Precedent of Subjugating Through Starvation
The lessons of history clearly demonstrate that dictatorial regimes, whether they be Socialists, Communists, and Marxists will not hesitate to use food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and impose absolute autocratic control. Food can be withheld from the masses by preventing it from being grown and harvested, by contaminating it and rendering it unfit for human consumption or by simply preventing food from being distributed to a targeted population.
The two most notable examples of dictators using food as a weapon in order to destroy the free will of their people comes from the regimes of Stalin and Hitler.
Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, and estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation when Stalin implemented his prescription of “hope and change” policies in order to eliminate the Ukrainian’s desire for becoming their own nation-state.
Upon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holdomor,” in which millions perished in only a two year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production.
Hitler proclaimed that food could be used as a tool “…to discipline the masses” and he did not hesitate to use the control of food as a type of carrot and stick in which he would reward accomplishment and punish failure as well as to ferment preferential class distinctions in which his armed forces received the largest food ration cards. Skilled workers who were engaged in industries critical to the building of the German war machine, received food ration cards which were slightly less in value. And, finally, the prisoners and the Jews received the lowest valued Nazi food ration cards. Food ration cards were also utilized as incentives to increase industrial production and were also increased in value when productive Nazi workers would be promoted. Food ration cards were diminished in value for the failure to meet Nazi production goals. Hitler’s use of what psychologists refer to as classical conditioning techniques reduced the will of the German population to a pack of Pavlovian dogs who were conditioned to be totally dependent upon the government for their survival. WITH OVER 50 MILLION AMERICANS ON FOOD STAMPS, UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, THE POTENTIAL FOR HISTORY TO REPEAT ITSELF IS INDEED REAL!
Most recently, Somalia thug, Farah Aideed, systematically starved his people into submission as a brutal civil war raged in both Darfur and Rwanda where the Islamic regimes sought the annihilation of ‘infidels’ and the use of food was one of the primary weapons designed to force compliance. And of course, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao all used food deprivation to quarantine their political opposition and exact absolute allegiance to their respective dictatorial regimes.
It is safe to say that the aforementioned dictators did not rule over countries that enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast similar to what you and I are enjoying today.
The US Government and Its Mass Starvation Policies
In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.
In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200 outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with CIA Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans.
NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary in this modern day application of eugenics in a scheme that would allow Henry to have his cake and eat it too in that the world would finally be rid of the “useless eaters!”
Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order 13603 (EO), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended target are not the LDC’s but, instead, the American people and after Obama declares martial law, food will undoubtedly be used to subjugate the more resistant regions of our country.
Could Obama Become the Next Stalin?
The potential for the extreme events in Ferguson spreading across the country are real. If the country was to go into martial law
lockdown, would food be used by this administration to control the population?
On the surface, it seems unlikely that any US president would ever starve any segment of the American people to death. However, when one considers the implications of Obama’s EO 13603, there can be no doubt that Obama would not hesitate to make this Thanksgiving, the last Thanksgiving, if not, why else would Obama have created the executive order.
Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 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 your loyal dog, Fido, were going to get through the coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.
How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic President or the next power-hungry President?
The term “all food storage facilities” includes your refrigerator, your pantry and even the very food in your cabinets as well as what is on your kitchen table. In short, anywhere you keep food is now under the control of the government and can be redistributed.
Planned Starvation In Modern Day America
Were you scratching your head in bewilderment as you watched a couple of years back, on the news, as the Amish have had their farms raided, raw milk producers have been jailed and the kids running lemonade stands have been shut down and ticketed? Now you know why these abuses are being perpetrated by the government in that it represents a mere conditioning process designed to get all U.S. citizens used to the idea that the government owns all food and food production.
The most clever aspect of this EO is that no Hegelian Dialectic (i.e., false flag event) is needed as a pretense to seize food and imperil survivability. Section 201(b) of the Obama EO clearly states that this EO is enforceable under both “emergency and non-emergency conditions.”
In an interesting footnote in history, Hitler used the Jews as forced labor as he systematically starved them to death in several of the labor death camps. What is to prevent REX 84 or PDD 51 from being carried out on American soil. After all, EO 13603 calls for civilian conscription, under the Department of the Labor, without compensation!
Is Obama setting the table to take his place among Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao as another despot in the long line of tyrannical leaders who would grant themselves the authority to subjugate the masses by using food as a weapon after declaring martial law? Americans desperately need to look at history in order to understand what happens every time the people of a government allows the government to control its food supplies and farms.
I sincerely hope that you will enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner, because if Obama does decide to implement EO 13603, today’s Thanksgiving dinner, could become known as ” The Last Thanksgiving Dinner”
