Food Sticker Shock! It’s Getting Worse

 

Last week I went to buy groceries. I saw that the cheapest hamburger was $7.99 a pound and that a quart of Best Food mayonnaise was also $7.99. I was just horrified. I didn’t buy any. I’m sure that had I searched other stores in Elko I could have found some cheaper prices, but still it alarmed me.

           

According to Reuters the U.S. beef herd is at a 52 year low, the lowest since they began keeping records. Many things have contributed to the lower herd number including drought impacting pasture and increasing feed prices, higher prices for diesel. This has been a downward trend for the last 5 years. https://www.reuters.com/markets/commodities/us-beef-cow-herd-falls-52-year-low-squeezing-meatpackers-2023-07-21/ 

 

Food prices are not going to go down. We have many problems facing us the biggest of which is the massive money creation/printing by our U.S. Treasury in combination with the private Federal Reserve Bank. They continue to inflate the money supply causing the value of the dollar to plunge and the cost of everything to go up. In addition, because of the worldwide inflation which the US has caused, the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa and now Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates) are using local currencies instead of the dollar for buying oil and trade. This will cause the demise of the U.S. Petro dollar, causing dollars from around the world to flood back into the U.S. further inflating our prices.  BRICS nations control 47% of global oil. The price of oil impacts everything. See www.nevadafamilies.org issues for info on preparedness.

 

A couple of strategies to use in coping with rising food prices are, I’m sure, the same things you do. Watch for sales and buy more filling my freezers and buy at stores where the prices for the same things are less. Also, when you buy more now when the prices go up you will have spent less on that item. I’ve also discovered Keystone canned meat (ground beef, roast beef, turkey, chicken and pork). They have 2 sizes the larger can is the size of a large can of peaches and holds 28 ounces (a pound and 3/4ths). They have no preservatives and the only ingredients are the meat and salt. They store for easily 5 years. This is a good item for your food storage. I got mine at Walmart. It’s also online at Walmart and available at Amazon too. I’ve read some articles about people trying to live off their food storage and the one thing they didn’t have enough of was protein.

 

We face other threats in this world. Our government through NATO is doing all it can to start a World War (nuclear) with Russia. We are being invaded at our borders by criminals, terrorists and China already has a huge army inside the U.S. of 50,000 or more. The Middle East, Taiwan and other hot spots around the world could explode at anytime, cutting supply lines and putting us into a war economy with much less available to buy.

 

The banks are in serious trouble. Their loans to Commercial Real Estate are imploding and the U.S. Treasuries they invested in are now underwater as interest rates have risen. There will be more bank failures. The FBI is warning of serious cyber threats to our electrical & communications infrastructure. Without power there is no water, no food, no lights or heat. We must realize that “normal” life could change in a minute. We must consider and act to prepare our families.

China's Infiltrators: 'They Are Coming Here to Kill Us'

 

China's Communist Party is at this moment putting in place the infrastructure in America to attack America. In Reedley, California, near Fresno, authorities found a secret Chinese biological weapons lab with at least 20 pathogens, including the one for Ebola, and almost a thousand mice that had been genetically engineered to spread disease. There are no benign explanations for such a facility.

Chinese agents, in addition to hobbling Americans with disease and gunning them down, could bomb power stations, attack military bases, start wildfires, poison reservoirs, or create terror in dozens of ways.

These tactics come straight out of Unrestricted Warfare, a 1999 book written by two Chinese air force colonels and first published by the PLA Literature and Arts Publishing House in Beijing. The colonels argued that China can and should employ any tactic in attacking a militarily superior United States. Now, Americans can see how Beijing is operationalizing the suggestions in this how-to manual.

Chinese attackers are already in America, more are arriving by the day, and they are armed. Videos posted to X (Twitter) show Chinese migrants firing pistols. One video is of a Chinese female with a sniper rifle. There is no Second Amendment in China, and Chinese citizens are not permitted to possess firearms. So is it possible that the shooters in the videos are merely taking advantage of a new-found freedom in their new home country? Unlikely.

If you had just landed somewhere as a migrant with nothing to your name, you would undoubtedly be preoccupied with finding your next meal, getting a place to live, making a livelihood. You would not, within weeks of entering your new homeland, be sharpening your skills to kill. You would not be thinking of killing unless... that is what you came to do.

The videos posted on X depict a sandy location. Blaine Holt, a retired Air Force general living in Idaho, knows Chinese migrants are taking target practice in his state as well.

"Tens of thousands of military-age men have come across our border and are now in America, organized by group and nationality" Holt told Gatestone this month. "Among them are terrorists and state actors, in particular, members of the People's Liberation Army of China. As we speak, these actors are training, making plans and obtaining weapons, watching our patterns, and learning our vulnerabilities. We are vulnerable to attack," Holt added. "Our enemies eagerly wait."

War correspondent Michael Yon and the Rubin brothers Muckraker.com have documented the presence of dangerous-looking elements — from China, Iran, Syria and Venezuela — among the hordes of migrants traveling up from Central America. Yon and the Rubins have noticed, among other things, that Chinese males of military age are traveling in packs of five to fifteen, are unaccompanied by family members, and are pretending not to speak English. Some of them, on their way to America, have performed Chinese military rituals.

Federal agents have periodically apprehended border-crossers with terrorist connections, but the surge in migrants from China is taxing law enforcement resources. U.S. Border Patrol chiefs testified last year before the House Homeland Security Committee that they are worried that, due to sheer numbers, migrants with links to the Chinese military and those who are members of the Chinese Communist Party are slipping through background checks.

Despite warning signs, the Biden administration is not keeping tabs on dangerous-looking elements once they have crossed into America.

"What are these guys doing here?" Holt asked, referring to the Chinese migrants honing their shooting skills. "They are coming here to kill us."

The Convention of States in Nevada is working to remove the Republican Platform plank which opposes an Article V Constitutional Convention. They will start at the County Convention level.

 

Article V Convention is a Threat to the Electoral College

By Janine Hansen National Eagle Forum Constitutional Issues Chairman

 

There is a well financed movement to circumvent the Electoral College by having State Legislatures pass the National Popular Vote Compact. To date, Sixteen States and the District of Columbia have passed the National Popular Vote Compact representing 205 electoral votes of the 270 votes needed to elect a President and for the National Popular Vote Compact to take effect.

 

Every State where National Popular Vote has passed is a Democrat State including: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington State and the District of Columbia.

 

This should alarm those who recognized the importance of the Electoral College which has given us a peaceful transition forty-six times from president to president including Biden. The Electoral College is based on how many Senators and Representatives each State has, giving a slight advantage to small population states.

 

The National Popular Vote Compact forces states which have signed onto the Compact to deliver their Electoral College Votes to the National “Popular” Vote winner whether or not that State’s voters voted for that particular Presidential candidate. It forces the chief election officer, usually the Secretary of State, to ignore the vote of the people in their state in favor of the National Popular Vote winner. There is no single arbiter of which candidate actually won the popular election which could result in endless court cases. Talk about stealing an election!!!

 

Our Founding Fathers established this nation as a Republic where the rights of all citizens, including the rights of those in the minority, would be protected. That’s one of the important purposes of the Electoral College. It also insures that one section of the country cannot control who becomes the president, that the president must have nationwide support. It is an ingenious plan which has served America well for 235 years.

 

One of the real threats to the Electoral College is an Article V Constitutional Convention like the Convention of States. All the Democrat States listed above will certainly participate in any Article V Convention for amending the Constitution. Many other States, including my own state of Nevada and Arkansas, Arizona, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Virginia, have made some progress towards passing National Popular Vote making it more likely that it will be considered at a Convention.

 

Former Chief Justice Warren Burger as the highest authority in the United States to ever speak out on a Constitutional Convention said, “I have also repeatedly given my opinion that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention.”

 

We can fully expect that in an unlimited Article V Convention for Amendments, with so many States supporting National Popular Vote that they would vote to eliminate the Electoral College.  This is just one more important reason to oppose the Convention of States which in their Pocket Guide and at their mock Conventions have suggested dozens of subjects that would fall under their language to “impose fiscal restraints on the federal government and to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.” Why not by eliminating the Electoral College?

 

We must oppose all attempts to pass an Article V Constitutional Convention including Convention of States which will jeopardize the Electoral College and our elections. 


God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. KJV Psalms 46:1

 

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me. KJV Psalms118:6

 

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. KJV Philippians 4:13

 

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” KJV John 14:27

 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shallow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: 

thou annointest my head with oil: my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness a mercy shall follow me all the day of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” 23rd Psalm, KJV
