Since Oct 24, 2004
Last fall (2021)there were reports that China had started hoarding food. Many of us laughed at that concept as conspiracy stuff.
But here we are now in spring with a 25% estimated drop in grains for this year due to Ukraine/Russia war.
One doesn’t normally hoard food in a crisis, one does so before the “crisis.” The argument could be made that China knew months ago that Russia had plans regarding Ukraine and it would trigger food shortages globally. We Americans we quite ignorant in that regard.
Biden is making severe errors regarding oil. The normal channels are not even taking our phone calls! Seriously, that’s not hyperbole. China is an energy hungry nation and they will do whatever it takes to get the oil, gas, coal they need. In the meantime, leftists in America are telling the poor to buy tesla’s, eat lentil porridge, and stop buying in bulk.
The United States is going to find itself in more than a world of hurt 4 months from now. Sanctions did nothing to stop Putin, do you really think they will stop China from going into Taiwan? Sure let’s sanction China, the rest of the world is staged to trade in other currencies.
Reality check that many even here on FR will call BS:
Gas will be unaffordable for most people.
Americans will not just be malnourished, they will be waking up to the fact they will starve or freeze this winter.
November elections are too late to repair the damage. In fact, clear, cold hard fact, it is too late already. November Republicans must be on a war footing both existentially and internally. The ‘swamp’ must be drained. Every rotten log, stone, must be overturned and removed. (I don’t see that happening, do you?)
Millions will be drafted into service either for war or to feed fellow citizens with what little they can ration.
Biden doesn’t have what it takes to rally the people. When President Trump was faced with the Sars-Cov-2 crisis and no masks, no ventilators, etc. he was able to rally companies to step up. Biden doesn’t have that in him, nor does his regime.
And when enough citizens realize what has happened...well SHTF time unlike we have ever witnessed before. America is just about ripe for the piking.

2 Maccabees 6:12-16 Providential Significance of Persecution
Now I urge those who read this book not to be depressed by such calamities, but to recognize these punishments were designed not to destroy but to discipline our people. In fact not to let the impious alone for long, but to punish them immediately, is a sign of great kindness. For in the case of the other nations the Lord waits patiently until they have reached the full measure of their sins, but He does not deal this way with us. In order to take vengeance on us afterward when our sins have reached their height. Therefore he never withdraws His mercy from us. Though he disciplines us with calamities, He does not forsake His own people.
If one really digs and searches you will find an interesting trail of breadcrumbs that lead from the early 2003ish to today and this virus. Basically though it starts under President Obama and the loss of control at several of our very own labs. The loss of control at the labs triggers Obama to place a moratorium on “gain of function,” experiments. Those specific experiments involved coronavirus. In 2017, the NIH lifts the ban. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/12/nih-lifts-3-year-ban-funding-risky-virus-studies Now we know Fauci worked as an AIDs expert back in the day. I recently found several interesting old interviews that set off a few red flags. You can read them for yourself. https://www.nature.com/articles/nm0102-10 “If you’re talking about a vaccine that’s truly useful and will have a substantial impact on the epidemic it’s going to be more than three years. The most you can hope for by then might be a vaccine to protect against disease progression rather than infection.” Fauci https://www.nature.com/articles/nrd2491 These really read like he’s talking about the vaccines we are using right now against cornovirus, which has a HIV component. Fauci and the Wuhan Lab Fauci had been working on gain of function experiments when the Obama ban took place. We know America funded the Wuhan lab and even trained the personnel. In 2014, the NIH approved a grant to EcoHealth Alliance designated for research into “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” The project involved collaborating with researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study coronaviruses in bats and the risk of potential transfer to humans. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/05/04/fact-check-obama-administration-did-not-send-3-7-m-wuhan-lab/3061490001/ WAIT!!! What? At about the time we BANNED such research here in the United States, Obama approved a 5 year grant to specifically study....SARS? So, as China makes claims we are responsible for this virus may be partially true as it is obviously true this virus of a gain of function experiment came from the Wuhan Lab.
There was never full confidence in any particular year’s iteration of the Influenza vaccine. Nobody who received the vaccine ever felt bullet proof against contracting Influenza because they’d been vaccinated against it. The reason for this is that the Inflenza virus mutates constantly and thus always remains a moving target. One year the vaccine more or less hits the target squarely, the next it deals it a glancing blow, and the next, misses it entirely. In this way, any Coronavirus germ is the same as any Influenza germ. Constantly mutating. That being so, your statement “There is no confidence in this vaccine.” is simultaneously true, and also somewhat besides the point.
Vaccines against Smallpox and Measles, by comparison, and for that matter Polio too, were developed without that built-in disadvantage. The respective virions that cause those three diseases never mutate. Therefore, there was no moving target, year after year. Effectiveness was darned near 100 percent and remained that high as time passed so all three diseases were soon more or less totally extirpated from life in all first world countries.
The thing is...the vaccines for those diseases never brought serious side effects or death at anything like the rates at which the mRNA gene manipulation injections are currently doing. And those diseases were far more grave and frightening than COVID-19. So, back in the day, people were asked to receive a vaccine that was far less potentially dangerous to their health and lives but with a realistic expectation of 100% effectiveness against a disease that was far more terrifying disease than COVID-19, with a basic promise of immunity for life.
By contrast, now, people are on the verge of being forced to receive an injection or series of injections that is far more potentially dangerous to their health and very lives, with a “who the hell knows” percent effectiveness that is sure to vary year to year against a disease that is a mewling kitten in comparison to the roaring tigers that were Smallpox, Measles and Polio, with no satisfactory promise of any reliable immunity to anyone for any period of time at all! And they wonder what is causing people to [air quotes] hesitate? Compared to the products brought to us by the likes of Jonas Salk and his ilk, Pfizer and ModeRNA’s highly-touted mRNA injections are a collective pig-in-a-poke.

@RantyAmyCurtis Time for a thread. I implore you, DO NOT FORGET what they’ve done to you. Do not let their sudden realization they are in bad shape politically excuse the last two-plus years of abuses. Replying to @RantyAmyCurtis They shut down your job. Called many of you “non-essential.” Closed your kids’ schools. Expected you to live off $1200 for months while they got richer and richer. They demanded you stay home. Denied you the ability to be with your dying loved ones. Then denied you the ability to give those loved ones a proper funeral. While they let George Floyd have three. They told you to stay home. While they went on vacation. Visited family. The hair salon. They arrested you for paddle boarding by yourself. They shut down the parks and the playgrounds. They called you a grandma killer if you questioned them. Suspended you from social media if you didn’t obey the narrative. They called you domestic terrorists when you demanded your kids get the education your tax dollars paid for. They mocked you when you demanded a return to normalcy for children. They sneer at your concern over empty shelves and exploding grocery and utility bills. They denied you the chance to try alternative treatments for COVID. Then they fired you for not getting the vaccine. When you stand up for your freedom, they call you Nazis and bigots. Do not forget what they have done. Do not forgive them. They are hoping that, by November, you have forgotten the nightmare of the last 2+ years. YOU struggle to make ends meet and the best thr Biden administration can do is free crack pipes for “racial equity.” This is on top of the woke, cancel culture bull they shove down our throats, the 2020 riots, being accused of racism and bigotry because we oppose their agenda. As the election draws closer, they’ll pretend they didn’t do any of this. They’ll gaslight us. Project. Blame the GOP (like they tried to when defunding the police went south). DO NOT give them power. They haven’t learned a damn thing from this. You re-elect them, and you can expect masks and lockdowns and nonsense in perpetuity. Not just for COVID, but for whatever else they deem a “public health emergency” (guns, climate change). They will trample your rights. VOTE THEM OUT. NEVER FORGET. 8:10 AM · Feb 9, 2022 from West Allis, WI
