  • According to the globalists, we are one crop failure away from ‘food system meltdown’ – new consumables added to the shortage and/or inflation list

    Food Collapse ^ | 4/23/23 | Staff
    Food costs are still rising, as we see the food-at-home in February 2023 were 10.2 percent higher than in February 2022, and we feel it at the grocery store every day. Yesterday Stefan came home from the store with four full plastic bags and a gallon of milk, and spent more than $200. It is good thing we have emergency survival food we bought almost nine years ago, because it looks like we will be using it unless we win the lottery……..then again we don’t play the lottery, so there goes that idea. With food inflation still topping overall inflation,...

    Another day, another empty claim that we need to alter our lifestyles to appease the power-mad brokers of our country. The latest hectoring harbinger is that our landscaping equipment is murdering the planet, so changes need to be enforced. This is what the over-educated and under-employed generations have wrought; the constant grazing for the next offense that needs to be addressed.USA Today delivers this latest solution to a wholly manufactured problem, claiming that the lawn mower and the leaf blowers used by your lawn service are the most pernicious producers of deadly emissions, saying “Regulators and clean-air advocates are increasingly...

  • Iran is ‘mapping’ Jewish leaders worldwide – report

    World Israel News ^ | 2/17/23 | JNS
    The Iranian government is “mapping” Jews around the world with plans to kill them if Israel attacks Iran, according to a report in London’s Jewish Chronicle. Catherine Perez-Shakdam, a Middle East scholar and research fellow at a think tank, met Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in February 2017. She believes that he was unaware that she is Jewish. According to Perez-Shakdam, the only thing Khamenei fears is an Israeli attack. “He believes Netanyahu’s threats, and he knows that for now, Israel is militarily superior,” she told the paper. “He feels that the Iranian regime can’t sustain a defeat.” During...

    A furry critter in a western Pennsylvania town has predicted six more weeks of winter during an annual Groundhog Day celebration. People gathered Thursday at Gobbler’s Knob as members of Punxsutawney Phil’s “inner circle” summoned the groundhog from his tree stump at dawn to learn if he has seen his shadow — and they say he did. According to folklore, if he sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, spring comes early. The “inner circle” is a group of local dignitaries who are responsible for planning the events, as well as feeding and...

    With Republicans demanding spending cuts in exchange for an increase in the federal debt limit and President Biden refusing to consider negotiating a compromise, House Democrats are proposing legislation that would eliminate any limit on the debt. Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill) argued that "if there were sufficient popular support for limiting how much the government can borrow voters wouldn't be electing so many Democrats. Rather than periodically raising the limit, I say we simply allow the government to borrow and spend as much as it wants to. The GOP's refusal to go along threatens the full faith and credit of...

    The World Economic Forum (WEF) has a plan to impose a carbon allowance that will control what you buy, eat, do, and where you to. It is outlined in an article we already discussed, ‘My Carbon’: An approach for inclusive and sustainable cities. It needs to be re-stated. THE GUISE OF SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY The piece began by expressing how easy it was to get the world to submit to their view of “social responsibility” [using COVID] – they just had to nudge [strike fear in] people to get it done. “A huge number of unimaginable restrictions for public health were...

    During World War One, George Pentreath, a schoolteacher in Eurack in Southeast Australia, planted what was probably the first ever Avenue Of Honor to show respect for local men going to war. A line of trees planted evenly spaced along one side of the road in front of the school. The school is gone but nearly all the Dutch elm trees survive. Many Avenues Of Honor were planted in country towns and cities across Australia in subsequent years. Remembering the past and preserving what is good (Ron Paul's definition of conservatism) is essential to our future. As it becomes increasingly...

I have a Harvest Right freeze dryer that needs a gasket and an oil/ water separator filter. I need to know the manufacturer and there is nothing on the pump to indicate who made it. Just the words Harvest Right. I called Harvest Right and they don't sell replacement parts and refused to tell me the make and model number.

    The City of Portland, Maine has opted to raise property taxes in order to provide free housing for asylum seekers. The average home price in the City is $475, 000. Up to now the tax on such a house has been $5,200. The expected additional annual levy is in the $350 range. Portland Mayor Kate Snyder said "so-called asylum seekers are being sent here without us being consulted or even getting any prior notice from the Biden Administration. Housing them has become a significant financial burden." "The property tax hike was just one of the options the City Council considered,"...
  • The Fed’s Missouri Boat Ride! Housing Acquisition Index Rises 114.5% Under Biden As Housing Price Reductions Rise 70% YoY (House Price Growth Will Freeze)

    I call this The Federal Reserve’s Missouri Boat Ride. Meaning that The Fed has kept monetary stimulus in play for too long since late 2008 helping to lower mortgage rates from over 6% in November 2008 to 2.98% in November 2021. Then came “The Missouri Boat Ride” as The Fed signaled monetary tightening, leading to mortgage rates skyrocketing to their highest level since 2010. The result of rising home prices AND mortgage rates? Housing acquisition prices (home prices * 30 year mortgage rates) have skyrocketed. Between rising home prices and rising mortgage rates, we see that number of prices reductions...

    Spain is expected to produce its lowest volume of fruit in the last 40 years due to frost that hit its fruit-production regions in early April1, 2, especially the Ebro Valley – one of Europe’s most important producing areas of sweet fruit. Manel Simon, the general director of the Catalan fruit association – Afrucat, said producers must plan their summer very well in the face of this decrease in production, adding that he hoped Spanish companies would prioritize exporting their production to the closest destinations and that there would be a significant decrease in exports to the third countries.3 Expectations...
