Before Trump won the Presidency, there was talk about his possible support of the clean food movement if he did in fact become POTUS, since many of his restaurants serve organic food dishes. But the Trump administration just put the wheels in motion for up to a $12 billion subsidy for U.S. farm-belt farmers that seem to be in shock from the revved up trade war with China and the EU. The problem? The U.S. exports nearly $140 billion in agriculture products annually, including over $20 billion in genetically modified soybeans, the most valuable export of all.
Currently, we already have 10 million acres of Frankenbeans (soy) planted, with 96 percent of those acres planted with the highly controversial herbicide-resistant GM seed. That means Trump will be “trumping up” more U.S. crops that are already fueling the cancer and dementia epidemics that are sweeping the country.
The rural and agricultural “farm-belt” states that turned America from “blue” to “red” via the electoral colleges in the fall of 2016 are now smiling from ear to ear, as farmers are now expecting to be major beneficiaries of Trump’s upcoming agricultural stimulus package. It’s like one huge booster shot, but much like vaccines, it won’t be a “healthy” one for consumers.
Genetically modified corn and soy have been proven in mountains of laboratory research to cause kidney dysfunction, liver failure, birth defects, anxiety and depression, cell death, and cancer in test animals. Maybe we should call this new farmer stimulus the FCDS package – Frankencrop cancer and dementia stimulus package.
The short term fix for the China trade war is in, but if you like eating food that doesn’t cause cancer and dementia, don’t get excited. The organic food industry won’t catch a break, in fact, may lose business if Frankencrops get cheaper, if and when the stimulus trickles down to the sheeple who are binging on GM feed, and those who eat the sickened animals that also eat genetically mutated feed.
Bayer, Monsanto, Dow and Dupont are getting ready to binge on billions of bucks in farming subsidies. The aid will be financed through the USDA’s “CCC” (Commodity Credit Corporation). Some Republican gurus aren’t so happy, claiming the trade wars are crippling farmers and they’re calling this subsidy plan “gold crutches” that will only help in the short run.
It looks as though the trade wars are also affecting U.S. dairy and meat. Hey, sounds like the trade wars are serendipitously man’s best friend, since conventional meat, dairy, corn and soy seem to be the cause of nearly every preventable disease epidemic in America, including heart disease.
Shares of farm equipment companies (like Deere & Co. and Caterpillar Inc.) have already been lifted by Trump’s subsidy announcement. When the new POTUS speaks, wallets listen. Farm equipment contracts are doubling in price as you read this. Will there be any arrests for insider trading on this, since some market options spiked before the actual public announcement? Of course not. Just call it coincidence. Barely a crook has been busted for insider trading in the past decade-and-a-half, since Wall Street basically runs the country.
Farmers continue to complain about tariffs, even though now they’ll be able to pay those overdue loans and quell those furious bankers. It’s basically welfare for farmers of genetically engineered crops.
By the way, subsidizing GM farming isn’t the only “cuts” and “scrapes” Trump has made to the organic food industry of the United States. Just last year Trump scrapped regulations that “certified organic” chickens and cows get some room to run around outside, breathe some fresh air and get some sunshine, instead of being “cooped up” 24/7 in filth-ridden pens. The confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are already the main source for fast food in America, that’s pretty much all ridden with pathogens, parasites, e-coli, salmonella, hormones and antibiotics.
Solution? Buy local, shop organic, and get a top-notch home water filtration system like a Big Berkey. Happy eating.
