  • Joe Biden to block Boris Johnson’s answer to global food crisis US president opposes Prime Minister’s plan to ease cost of living by curbing green fuels

    Joe Biden will on Monday attempt to block Boris Johnson’s plan to move away from green fuels amid a transatlantic split over how to tackle the global cost of living crisis. Mr Johnson will address G7 leaders at a summit in Germany and ask them to repurpose land currently used for crop-based biofuels to grow more food. The Prime Minister believes using less green fuel would dampen soaring food prices and help avert famines in poorer countries that rely heavily on Ukrainian grain blockaded in ports by Russia. However, Mr Biden’s officials made it clear on Sunday that Washington will...
  • Large Chicken Producer Abruptly Announces Closure of Tennessee Plant, Catching Locals Off Guard

    06/26/2022 9:01:42 AM PDT · by · 53 replies ^ | June 26, 2022 | Andrew Jose
    One of the nation’s largest vertically integrated chicken producers will be shutting down one of its plants in Campbell County, Tennessee. George’s Inc. announced it would be closing its Caryville food processing plant, WVLT-TV reported. The move would jeopardize the livelihoods of around 200 of the company’s employees during a time of record-high inflation and soaring gas prices, according to the news station. Campbell County Mayor E.L Morton told WLVT-TV that he was working to ensure the plant would remain open, so the closure would not hurt employees’ livelihoods. “I have contacted the Tennessee Economic and Community Development staff to...
  • Diesel Demand Set To Drop As Economies Enter Recession: Kemp

    Zubu Brothers ^ | 6-25-2022 | John Kemp, senior energy analyst
    U.S. diesel consumption is likely to decline by 200,000 to 600,000 barrels per day (5%-15%) over the next year as the economy slows in response to rising interest rates. The Federal Reserve is not deliberately trying to induce a recession to bring inflation under control, central bank chief Jerome Powell told legislators on Wednesday. But he said that was a possible and foreseeable outcome of rapid rate rises – an interesting application of the doctrine of double effect. The central bank hopes for soft landing but feels it must risk a hard one to reduce inflation running at the fastest...

    Did you ever think you’d live to see American parents relying on Mexico for their baby’s survival? ...... Snip...... This week, after several months of baby formula shortages the Biden regime announced they will start importing formula from Mexico. It only took them six months to devise this simple plan. They are really that pathetic. HotAir reported: Today the Biden administration announced it is providing logistical support to import about 16 million 6-ounce baby formula bottles from Mexico. The project starts this weekend. It involves the Department of Health and Human Services expediting trucks that will drive about 1 million...

    Although Cuenca has escaped the disruption and violence suffered by other major cities during the first nine days of the indigenous anti-government strike, that appeared to be changing Wednesday. Early Wednesday morning, a protester died at roadblock on the Pan American highway in Tarqui after police fired tear gas to clear the intersection connecting Cuenca to Loja and Machala. The 31-year old man was found lifeless at the side of the highway and some protesters believe he was struck by a gas canister. Paramedics said he showed no head trauma, only slight bruising of the torso. The man was pronounced...

    It wasn’t just the epic confusion unleashed by the Biden admin in the past few days over how to lower record gas prices (suggesting that Biden really has no idea what the 79-year-old president is doing), that sparked today’s jump in crude oil and surge in energy names. Monday: gas-tax holiday under consideration Tuesday: Russian oil price-caps — zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 21, 2022 Providing some bullish support for the oil cash, in his latest weekly note, Bank of America’s energy analyst Fernando Blanch writes that even if the world goes into recession, Brent oil could average more than $75/bbl...

    A month after President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act to import emergency supplies of infant formula, store shelves are still half empty and brands shipped on U.S. military planes from other countries are not yet helping many families struggling to find critical specialty brands. The U.S. government began importing infant formula from Switzerland, the United Kingdom and elsewhere one month ago. It launched Operation Fly Formula to address a shortage that was triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, a major formula recall and a decision by the FDA to shutter one of the nation’s top formula-producing plants for several months...

    Food insecurity is rising globally because of the war in Ukraine, according to experts, with Africa expected to be hit the hardest. The world’s superpowers, China and the U.S., say they are trying to mitigate the fallout but at the same time are accusing each other of exacerbating the crisis. A state newspaper, The China Daily, placed blame for the situation partially on Washington, saying: “Food prices have reached an all-time high, as Russian and Ukrainian grain exports are hindered by port disruptions and Western sanctions.” The U.S., for its part, has accused China of hoarding, after President Xi Jinping...

    I run the coffee and doughnuts after the 9:00 AM Mass here in Phoenix, AZ. On Monday morning I go to our doughnut supplier, a Kroger-owned supermarket, and submit my order for 12 dozen doughnuts, describing how many and what kind. The ladies in the bakery apologized as they informed me that they would not be able to fill my order as described due to a "doughnut shortage". A doughnut shortage?! Is nothing sacred? Here we are fiddling with baby formula and right under our noses I am told that there will be no chocolate doughnuts, no cake donuts, and...

    The New York Times tried to inject a silver lining into the fertilizer shortage gripping American farmers by telling them to use pee as a substitute to help foster a so-called green transition. Times climate journalist Catrin Einhorn belched in an absurd news item that the worldwide “shortage of chemical fertilizer” she blamed on “the war in Ukraine” can potentially be solved by human urine. “It just so happens that human urine has the very nutrients that crops need,” she claimed, praising how urine “has a lot more [nutrients], in fact, than Number Two, with almost none of the pathogens.”...

    A plan proposed by U.S. President Joe Biden to see grain exported from Ukraine has received scrutiny from Poland, which has raised the alarm. Poland has pointed out a number of problems with a plan presented by U.S. President Joe Biden to finally enable grain to be exported out of Ukraine, in peacetime a major exporter of agricultural products. With tens of millions of tons currently stuck in the country as a result of an ongoing Russian blockade of the Black Sea, President Biden has suggested building a host of silos on the Ukrainian-Polish border to help move the globally...

    U.S. families are struggling to make ends meet as multiple supply chain issues continue to affect many aspects of their lives amid record high gas prices and 41-year-high inflation. Online news outlet the 19th highlighted one such case this week as an Indianapolis mother, Diamond Cotton, has struggled to find basic products she needs for her family. She has been forced to go from store to store to find tampons for her daughters, “who have both started menstruating and would need tampons to go swimming this summer,” according to the outlet.

    The fertilizer shortage that threw the agricultural sector into disarray and pushed food costs higher globally may be fading. Crops across the world are dependent on nutrients from Russia, one of the biggest exporters, and the invasion of Ukraine four months ago roiled markets for the crucial chemicals. Ultimately, prices soared so high that farmers halted buying — and now the market has flipped. Fertilizer supplies are piling up from Florida to South America. Ships are waiting to unload and companies are struggling to reduce stocks in ports and warehouses, according to people familiar with the matter. In Brazil, warehouses...

    A Lehigh County farmer recently called Kyle Kotzmoyer and said something like “I’ve got a tractor hooked up to my corn planter out here, no diesel fuel, and I can’t afford to get any.” Kotzmoyer, who recalled the conversation Tuesday, said he responded to the request for advice with a joke. Kotzmoyer, who recalled the conversation Tuesday, said he responded to the request for advice with a joke. That’s about all he could do, he said, because the crushing reality of record diesel fuel prices is pushing farmers to the brink and may affect food availability. “We have reached that...

    Sometimes when I am grocery shopping, even if I am there just for broccoli, I’ll swing by the aisle where they stock feminine products. Because, even though most of the things that disappeared during the pandemic like toilet paper, yeast, and flour have returned to the shelves, tampons are still in short supply. It’s become a strange fascination of mine, to see the large gap on the shelf, like a missing front tooth, where tampons are supposed to be. In the last few months, I’ve visited stores in New York, Massachusetts, and California—no tampons. And it’s not just me. Dana...

    No doubt about it, the economic news in recent weeks has been relentlessly negative. Indicator after indicator shows activity plunging sharply in key parts of the economy. Now, a widely followed indicator signals economic growth is likely to be zero in the current quarter, after the first quarter’s “unexpected” 1.4% decline. Buckle up, looks like we’re entering a recession, folks. Let’s review just some of the economic carnage of recent days: The Fed raised interest rates by 3/4 of a percentage point on Wednesday, the largest hike since 1994, as the central bank desperately tries to rein in our near-9%...

    Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm pushed back against the notion that there were too many regulations on oil refineries, and that was behind the lack of production. Host Joe Scarborough asked Granholm if President Joe Biden should “level with the American people” and admit that overregulation was an issue.

    Disruptions to US food supply chains could worsen if the Teamsters Warehouse Division and several Teamster locals walk off the job at foodservice distribution centers throughout the East Coast because of unresolved labor contracts. Teamsters released a statement revealing contract negotiations with US Foods are souring, and they “put the foodservice giant on notice that work stoppages are imminent.” This means that unresolved work contract negotiations between the labor union and the foodservice distributor could result in a strike that may disrupt the flow of food products to tens of thousands of restaurants. Teamsters point out US Foods is under...
