Lockdown Rule Leads to People Running Out of Food (China)

by BN Frank, Activist Post:

COVID concerns have led governments worldwide to pass mandates that some assert have put people at more risk than actually contracting the virus.  It’s hard thinking about millions of people not being able to get groceries.

In Locked-Down City of 13M, People Running Out of Food

Lockdown rules bar people from leaving the home to grocery shop

(Newser) – The Chinese city of Xi’an has been locked down since Dec. 22, and this lockdown is more extreme than most. In a quest to maintain China’s “zero COVID policy,” the New York Times reports workers have been tasked with spraying disinfectant throughout the city, and Xi’an’s 13 million residents aren’t permitted to leave even for essential reasons, like getting groceries. That’s a tightening of the original rule, which allowed a food-related excursion once every two days in the city, home to China’s famous Terracotta Warriors. But as of Monday, the only accepted reason to leave the home is for COVID testing, and the BBC reports that some residents say they are running out of food.

Stock Up NOW: Panic Buying May Be Just Around The Corner As Covid Cases Smash Through Records [UPDATE: Panic Already Spreading Among Libtards]


by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

The covid surge we appear to be facing could be so massive it may shut down the economy for weeks.

While Omicron is not particularly deadly and generally is just a bad cold, it’s spreading at a truly unprecedented rate. The US reportedly just saw 1 million cases in the past two days, the highest spread ever recorded.

Tons of people like myself and most of my family who caught this bug have not gotten tested and will not get tested, so that number is undoubtedly already much higher.

Huge Number Of Food Shortages Predicted For 2022 By A Variety Of Experts – Democrats Told Us It Would Get Better By 2022, But These Experts Warn It’s Not And Is Going to Get Much Worse

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

In 2020 and 2021 we saw a number of shortages, from foods to computer chips, stemming from different reasons. First and foremost which kicked off the extremely depleted store shelves that our readers sent exclusive images of, all across the country, while certain specific areas saw less, and others more shortages, were the lockdowns.

Those lockdowns forced school and restaurant closures, which in turn blindsided the farming industry because the demand dried up, so much of their “supply” had to be destroyed. Tens of millions of gallons of milk dumped, crops plowed through because the farmers couldn’t offload it, and ranchers forced to euthanize their own livestock because they couldn’t get it all processed.

Lessons From An Underground Economy

by J.G. Martinez, The Organic Prepper:

How is it possible to survive a nation with inflation rates of 20%/month and 1700%/year? The answer? The underground economy. This is the level of hyperinflation we have found ourselves with here in Venezuela, and considering the spread of inflation worldwide, it would be well worth the prepper’s time to glean what we can learn here.

Virtually everything you read dictates inflation on this scale necessitates civil war.

Yet Venezuela hasn’t seen this. Why not? Why are the streets not being taken by armed civilians?

The Criminalization of Preppers in Turkey: Will Our Country Be Next?

by Aden Tate, The Organic Prepper:

History has shown us that collectivism detests the individual. The man who can exist independent of the system, who thinks for himself, who is not easily swayed, and who has values rooted in absolute truth which he refuses to give up – this is the enemy of collectivism.

But if we take a closer look at one aspect of the individual – his ability to exist independent of the system – is it not clear this is an end goal of prepping?

Is that not what a prepper strives for – the ability to exist independent of the world around them so that disaster does not affect them in the way that it affects others?

Can You Survive Without Meat When The SHTF?


by Ken Gallender, Survival Blog:

I’d like to start this article with saying that I am not a tree hugger. I love meat, eggs, cheese and fish. I’m not trying to convince anyone to quit hunting and fishing. I have been an outdoorsman my entire life. I drive and use 4×4 trucks and ATVs every week. I just want to impart what has profoundly changed my life.

I have given a lot of thought to how we would survive and provide the protein requirements for my family if suddenly we were faced with the prospect of having no supermarket or source of meat and dairy products. I keep fish traps, gill nets, minnow seines, etc. as a silent means of catching fish and crayfish (“freshwater lobster”). I also keep traps for small game.

Murdoch and his wife have purchased a 340,000 acre cattle ranch and attached mansion house in Montana that was previously owned by the Koch family for a whopping $200 million dollars.

Calories in a Bug-Out Bag: How Many Can You Really Fit?


by Aden Tate, The Organic Prepper:

I’ve been thinking a lot about bugging out a lot lately, and on my backpacking trips, it is both food and water that serve as my limiting factors. Without those two variables, I can no longer stay out in the mountains. Within a bug-out situation, you’re going to face the exact same predicament. Your goal here is energy to last longer, so the question is, calories in a bug-out bag: how many can you really fit?

Without food, you starve.

Without water, you dehydrate.

Meat Prices are SKYROCKETING. Here’s How to Get Ready.


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

I started raising chickens for meat in 2014. I’ve always bought the same feed from the same farmer. Prices have always been about the same. Even when prices on meat were slowly rising in the grocery stores due to Covid issues in the processing plants, my feed supplier’s prices didn’t change much. I process the animals myself so I haven’t had to deal with the labor issues. Chickens from me in 2021 would have cost the same as they had in 2019.  

However, yesterday I found out my chicken feed prices will be up almost 20% in 2022. My pig feed will be up 60%. It’s going to be a hell of a jump. The droughts out West have clobbered grain growers. Gas prices are up. Labor costs are up. Some of the minerals have had to be imported and all those prices are up. The gradual increase in prices most of us have been watching are going to take steep upward turn within the next couple months. A lot of people have been saying this is going to happen; you can’t print trillions of dollars, pay people not to work, and expect nothing to happen.

As Perfect Storm, Manufactured By The Globalists, Hits America’s Supply Chain, One Store Manager Warns: ‘Get It While You Can, Cause It’s Not Going To Be There Next Week, I Guarantee You’

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

When we first heard the chatter about the probability that Americans would have issues finding what they want and need for Christmas shopping, it was easy to first think “Well, Christmas has been so commercialized with less and less people celebrating the birth of Christ, and more overly concerned with what gifts they are getting, maybe this is a blessing in disguise.”

I still think the holiday has in fact become too commercialized, but understand that for many, the presents are simply part of their celebration of the birth of Christ.

As more and more warnings came about the number of items that won’t be on the shelves or just a limited supply would be available, whether from supply chain issues, or shortages of the parts needed to manufacture certain products, or labor shortages, and let’s not forget the inflation, we realize that for many, Christmas was going to be hard in 2021.
