A Farming Insider Has Warned Me That The Coming Food Shortages Are Going To Be FAR WORSE Than We Are Being Told

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

The information that I am about to share with you is extremely alarming, but I have always endeavored to never sugarcoat things for my readers.  Right now, there are shortages of certain items in grocery stores across the United States, and food supplies have gotten very tight all over the globe.  I have repeatedly warned that this is just the beginning, but I didn’t realize how dire things have already gotten until I received an email from a farming insider that I have corresponded with over the years.  I asked him if I could publicly share some of the information that he was sharing with me, and he said that would be okay as long as I kept his name out of it.

The State Now Owns Your Car – And Your House? — Bugging Out and Emergency Preparedness

by Bjorn Andreas Bull-Hansen, Activist Post:

Because of “the Russian threat to neighbor states”, the Norwegian army recently sent out a letter. In a SHTF, emergency or war situation they will take your car and maybe your house. You might be forced to bug out sooner than you think – by foot.

Homesteading Tips from John Moody + Upcoming Rogue Food Event!


by Corey Lynn, Corey’s Digs:

Irecently had the pleasure of speaking with John Moody, a brilliant author, homesteader, and co-founder of the annual Rogue Food Conference. I wanted to pick John’s brain to extract some of his tips & tricks and advice when it comes to homesteading from the smallest of places to large amounts of acreage. I also wanted to get the scoop on what he will be talking about at this year’s Rogue Food Conference, and what other speakers have in store for us. I was pleasantly surprised!

Should You Move While You Can, Or When You Must?

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

This gives an extreme advantage to those few who move first, long before they must. The financial advantage for first movers is equally extreme.

Moving is a difficult decision, so we hesitate. But when the window to do so closes, it’s too late. We always think we have all the time in the world to ponder, calculate and explore, and then things change and the options we once had are gone for good.

Moving to a new locale is difficult for those of us who are well-established in the place we call home. Add in a house we love, jobs/work, kids in school, a parent living with us and all the emotional attachments to friends, extended family, colleagues and favorite haunts, and for many (and likely most) people, moving is out of the question.

China is piling up unprecedented quantities of food, inflating prices and dropping more countries into famine: 69% of world’s maize reserves, 60% of its rice and 51% of its wheat

from Strange Sounds:

Less than 20% of the world’s population has managed to stockpile more than half of the globe’s maize and other grains, leading to steep price increases across the planet and dropping more countries into famine.

The hoarding is taking place in China.

COFCO Group, a major Chinese state-owned food processor, runs one of China’s largest food stockpiling bases, at the port of Dalian, in the northeastern part of the country. It stores beans and grains gathered from home and abroad in 310 huge silos. From there, the calories make their way throughout China via rail and sea.

It Just Keeps Getting Worse – Imagine Being Forbidden From Leaving Home To Go Buy Food As Is Already Happening Elsewhere, Sending A Dire Warning To America!

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

With American companies practicing China-style censorship, social credit scores being rolled out just like in China, and big corporations bending over backwards for China by ignoring humanitarian crises perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), along with “China Joe” now occupying the White House,  we find it prudent to watch them for situations and actions that  liberal leaders here in America might say “Hey, we LIKE that idea!”

50 Things That Americans Should Be Stockpiling For The Chaotic Year Ahead

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Welcome to 2022!  Or as many on social media are saying, welcome to “2020 too”.  During the waning months of 2019, I repeatedly warned that I had such a bad feeling about what 2020 would bring, and of course it turned out that all of our lives were completely turned upside down that year.  I didn’t issue a similar warning for 2021, but now I have such a bad feeling about 2022.  So many of the long-term trends that I have been warning about for ages are starting to come to a crescendo, and I am encouraging everyone to do whatever they can to get prepared for some extremely troubled times.

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.

From Newser:

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?
