Third-Largest Egg Farm Burns, Food Prices Spiking Again And Inflation Set To Increase Exponentially In 2023 Now That Millions Of Barrels Of Oil Aren’t Being Dumped On The Open Market By Biden


    by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

    In 2021 and 2022 more than a 100 food plants, manufacturing and processing, were destroyed, whether by fire, explosions, and even two plane crashed into plants, all at a time when the food supply chain was already compromised from the Covid lockdowns.

    Some of those destroyed in 2022 were not entire plants or farms but rather the destruction of chickens , two examples being 1,746,900 chickens destroyed at egg farm in Dixon, Nebraska, and 259,000 chickens destroyed at farm in Minnesota, both listed as 4/12/2022.

    Is it any wonder we are seeing egg shortages, with some stores limiting the purchase of cartons of eggs to two per person, as well as the unprecedented spiking of egg prices across the nation?

    An image sent from a reader on January 27, 2023, shows a carton of 18 white eggs, not organic, at $7.36, in Hickory NC.

    One again in the midst of a shortage, this time eggs specifically, we see news of a huge fire at the third-largest egg farm in the United States on Saturday, January 29, 2023. The fire was so massive that 21 fire departments were deployed. Local reports indicated roughly 100,000 egg laying hens perished in the fire.

    The claim in that linked local report is that the risk is “minimal” this tragedy would increase the price of eggs any further, which is a good thing considering the price of eggs now compared to a year earlier.

    Via Daily Mail in a piece titled “Breadline USA: Eight million Americans earning more than $100,000-a-year are living paycheck-to-paycheck, disturbing study reveals, as inflation continues to decimate earnings.”


    On top of that, an avian flu outbreak has sharply curtailed the national supply of eggs, sending prices soaring in 2022.

    The national average price for a dozen grade A, large eggs soared to $4.25 in December – up nearly 140% from $1.79 one year ago, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    More than 43 million of the 58 million birds slaughtered over the past year to control the virus outbreak have been egg-laying chickens, including some farms with more than a million birds apiece in major egg-producing states like Iowa.

    In the same Daily Mail piece cited above, we see that 64 percent of Americans are now living paycheck-to-paycheck, with nothing saved for emergencies. Nearly five percent of those are earning more than $100,000 a year.


    That means 166 million Americans are unable to save any money at all at the end of the month.

    And of those 166 million, 8 million – almost 5 percent – were earning more than $100,000 a year. The total figure represents a 9 percent increase from last year.

    It all comes down to inflation, which continues to be above average year over year.

    Food inflation is nearly double overall inflation, and when individual consumables, such as eggs, are taken into account, those numbers are exponentially from the same time last year. Last year they were higher than the year before, so the “overall” inflation that the media and Biden administration continue to boast of, still has Americans paying significantly more than before the start of the Biden regime’s occupation of the White House.

    Oh, and about those “lower” inflation numbers, there are aspects the media/Biden regime are deliberately not reporting on.

    Via ZeroHedge by Phoenix Capital Research:

    The longer I’m in this business, the clearer it becomes that no one actually reads anymore. Everyone simply trumpets headlines, or retweets articles, without looking at the data.

    The latest and most glaring example of this is the claim that “inflation has peaked.” Everywhere you look in the media (and on social media) people repeat this statement as if it is a fact.

    It is not. Inflation has not peaked. And the data confirms this.

    Almost ALL of the drop in inflation data has come from energy prices falling. And energy prices have fallen because the Biden administration dumped over 250 MILLION barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

    To put this into perspective, it’s nearly 40% of the SPR. And the Biden admin dumped it in the span of less than two years. THAT is why energy prices dropped, which accounts for almost ALL of the drop in inflation data.

    See for yourself. Outside of the drop in energy prices, the only significant drop in prices occurred in used car vehicles. Everything else is still RISING in price year over year.


    As explained in detail at the ZeroHedge link, now that tens of millions of barrels of oil are no longer being dumped into the open market, the prices are beginning to bottom out.

    The bottom line as stated in that piece is “So, unless President Biden wants to empty the SPR to zero, this “inflation has peaked” narrative is over. Inflation is coming back in a big way. And NO ONE is positioned for it.”

    Not the best news to offer, but at least Independent Media readers will be more prepared than those only paying attention to the gaslighting of the MSM on behalf of the Biden regime.
