Warning..... I smell bacon: This story may just be the most horrendous police state story to date. This is very sad and sick to see the mentality of someone you believe is out to protect and serve. Anyone hiding behind a badge and decapitating a childs pet in it's own yard is absolutely deserving of the title Pig. Atwater Police Chief Trevor Berger left the severed head next to the boy’s chicken coop.
“I guess I don’t regret it, because it’s like taking care of any rodent in town"
by MIKAEL THALEN | INFOWARS.COM | SEPTEMBER 2, 2014
A Minnesota police chief admitted to beheading a five-year-old boy’s pet chicken with a shovel last month after a neighbor complained about the animal running through the neighborhood. Ashley Turnbull, the mother of the boy, acknowledged that her son was in violation of a local ordinance but says the chief violated multiple laws, including trespassing on private property, when he decapitated the red hen.
“The chicken was like a puppy dog to my son,” Turnbull told West Central Tribune. “You wouldn’t do that to a puppy.”
Atwater Police Chief Trevor Berger, who left the severed head next to the boy’s chicken coop, defended his actions, citing the local ordinance as justification.
“It’s against city ordinance for a chicken to be in the city and running around in people’s yards,” Berger said. “I’m sorry it had to happen that way.”
Incredibly, Berger added that he initially planned to shoot the chicken but decided not to after noticing children in the neighboring yard. After “10-15 minutes” of failing to catch the chicken, Bergel’s attention turned to a shovel leaned against Turbull’s garage.
“I feel like I made a good effort to get it back in,” Berger said, wondering what all the “uproar” was about.
Berger also admitted that he “forgot” to inform the family, although claiming he originally intended to.
Turnbull’s fiancé Chris Gordon, recalled the phone conversation he had with Bergel later that day.
“I said, so you came to our home and killed our chicken with our shovel?” Gordon explained. “He said, ‘Yup. Any questions?’ That’s the thing that makes me mad.”
Turnbull has since filed a complaint with the city, demanding Berger apologize to her son at minimum.
“I still feel he owes my son an apology and he owes us a chicken,” Turnbull said.
According to Berger, the “chicken fiasco” would be brought up at a City Council meeting this coming Wednesday.

An aspiring singer and songwriter, Deanna Miller, would like to share with you, the readers at FoodFreedomUSA.org, a rap song she wrote to educate people on the difference between Big Ag's factory-farm pigs and the pigs raised on pasture in family farms. This easy listening rap song informs the listener of what the DNR was doing in Michigan to an American farmer, Mark Baker, of Bakers Green Acres in Michigan. The author hopes this song motivates you to donate to Baker's Green Acres cause.
Enjoy. You can also visit Deanna's site at:
Farmers and Ranchers flee their homes.
Use the above pledgie button and vote for freedom, and use your dollars to support a real American tried and true farmer, Mark Baker, in his battle with the tyrannical powers of the Michigan DNR. Facing a fine of nearly three quarters of a million dollars, Mark Baker refused to lie down and allow his pigs to be shot and our Constitution to be violated. His stoic defense of our Constitutional Rights, private property rights, and individual rights, is remarkable.
As anyone can see the war on for our food is only escalating. Most farmers in the Texas border towns are fleeing and leaving their farms and ranches, just to save their families lives from threats of death and transference communicable diseases that the current invasion of illegal aliens has brought to their towns. A lot of our food sources are being lost to these invaders whom are being turned loose on our streets by a totalitarian dictator in the district of criminals.
If you think throwing flowers and rainbows at the aggressors is the answer then you might as well throw your money to the wind. You need to support the historic American men of our day like Mark Baker, Cliven Bundy, and Vernon Hershberger, just to name a few. In numerous states there are many farmers and ranchers engaged in battles with an out of control, power crazed, behemoth, government. So Mark Baker is just one of a brave many.
Most of our founding fathers were farmers and ranchers. Just like Thomas jefferson and George Washington, Mark Baker has drawn a line in the sand and is currently doing more for your Constitutional Rights than any politician in Washington D.C.. Mark Baker is even throwing his hat into the ring for the Office of Sheriff in Missaukee County Michigan. Show him your support and donate to his pledgie campaign today, tomorrow may be too late.

The time has come for all American's to stand for their individual Constitutional Rights, and leave no farmer behind. It is going to take many people getting active today, making phone calls to the politicians, and by using their social media outlets to awaken and alert their friends to the war on for their food.
Mark Baker, of Bakers Green Acres is one farmer who has taken the bull by the horns, so to say. Baker has been stoic in his stand against the Michigan DNR's attempt at shutting down his family farm. A proud husband, father, and Veteran, Baker is taking a stand for your individual Constitutional Rights. He has gone so far as to throw his hat in the ring for Sheriff of Missaukee County Michigan. Would you? America needs you.
I urge you to support Baker in his fight against the tyrannical food 'authorities' of this nation and all the tramplers of our beloved US Constitution. Granted we all realize that the fight is bigger than just food, but if we fail to stop these tyrannical beasts at the farm gate, they will soon control all the food and all the people.
Without access to real foods we will become subject only to government approved food sources in the very near future. Are you comfortable with only having processed, irradiated, and pasteurized foods on your table? Are you willing to only consume the GMO foods Monsanto chooses for you to eat? Eat GMO's and die, or eat free and live. The choice is yours.
Most recently when the BLM had placed 11 sniper teams surrounding the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. Americans responded Constitutionally with Militia units from across the country to prevent a government planned disaster of an American rancher, Cliven Bundy. If the proper and lawful use of the Second Amendment ushers in a new era of peace for our farmers then so be it. If you were offended by the Militia and their response to government tyranny then you are part of the problem and not part of the solution.
If you think that the only answer to the problem is to act as a 'community' and band together for 'community rights' you have already been sucked into the rabbit hole of the false left right paradigm. Pull yourself up out of that rabbit hole and get yourself a copy of the US Constitution. Read it. Then, take an oath to uphold and defend that Constitution, and start sharing your new found knowledge with your friends. Invite them over a home cooked, farm fresh meal, and let them taste the sweet flavors of real food freedom.

The Michigan feral swine declaratory ruling is rescinded, while the invasive species order moves ahead. So now the Constitution is being trampled once again in Michigan and Bakers Green Acres is under the iron fist once again, this after three long years of battle between Mark Baker and the Michigan DNR. Due process is dead and tyranny runs amuck with the Michigan DNR's latest unconstitutional action. (See video below). The Fourth Amendment is shackled and tossed overboard in Michigan. If you refuse to stand with this patriot farmer, you have failed as an American. Go to Bakersgreenacres.com and the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund to help fund the resistance to the tyranny of the Agricultural Industrial Complex.
"......there's two things there that you need to be concerned with
When will the general population awaken from their slumber and realize that they have been led like naive sheep into a Communist society. How often do you hear today from the Anthroposophists about community, all this warm and fuzzy feel good garbage, flowers, rainbows, and unicorns, yet nothing about your God given individual rights?
Think about it.
"Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God", Thomas Jefferson said. Is your god the 'warm and fuzzies' as in Anthroposophy, the religion of the New World Order? This country was not founded by, nor can it be saved, with a 'warm and fuzzy' Anthroposophical New World Order pacifist agenda. Remember, pacifists hate and detest patriots.
The time has come where you are going to have to resist, with all your God given abilities, the tyranny that is trampling our God given rights daily all across Amerika. Even the world's most hated leader of all time, Adolph Hitler, sent the Anthroposophists out from Germany because of the societal destruction their Anthroposophical religion was causing. Resist the warm and fuzzies and do not fall into their trap. Founded by the Theosophist, Anthroposophist, and Occultist, Rudolph Steiner, Anthroposophy is now disguised in Amerika today as the Waldorf school system and Bio-dynamic farming. The Waldorf school system uses a humanistic approach in science and education. Yes, God is dead in the Waldorf-Steiner educational system and it creates New World Order zombies that are anti Second Amendment, but the 'educated' children become good little pacifist community activists, socialists, and communists. The Bio-dynamic farmers use spells and incantations, along with organic practices to grow their 'organic' crops. Biodynamic agriculture uses various herbal and mineral additives for compost additives and field sprays; these are sometimes prepared by controversial methods, such as burying ground quartz stuffed into the horn of a cow, which are said to harvest "cosmic forces in the soil".
Americans, we will have to get down on our knees and pray for the strength and courage as George Washington once did to Almighty God. Then if God grants you the strength and courage, you will be obliged, to God, to use all your talents and abilities to defend your God given Constitutional rights against these jack-booted thugs that are only 'doing their job'. Sic semper tyrannis.
If there is anyone who does not yet understand that these GMO foods are a soft kill weapon, and an act of war against the American people, pull your head out of the sand now.

In an act of lucidity and light that our own country should somewhat imitate, Russian lawmakers are considering equating GMO-related activities to a terrorist act or death threat, a criminal act that Russia says deserves the punishment which killers and creators of mass ecological and human genocide deserve.
A Russian newspaper, Izvestia, writes that criminal liability will be imposed on any act that involves producing, selling, or transporting genetically modified organisms, if Russian lawmakers get their way.
A bill supporting this ideaology was submitted to the Russian State Duma lower parliament house by the Duma agrarian committee as well as the Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) (who claimed the parliament’s bill was too mild.) Those initiating the bill suggest that criminal responsibility should be applicable to companies and government officials, but not to farmers who were convinced that GMOs were safe to grow. They believe individuals should only undergo disciplinary action, and not criminal charges.
The bill would also heavily fine companies for distorting or concealing information about the environmental impacts of GMOs. If this bill were to pass in the US, I’m sure Monsanto would go broke paying all the fines they would be subject to. They’ve paid off scientists and entire institutions, as well as our own FDA and EPA to conceal evidence about both health and environmental damage that GMOs cause. Government officials would be subject to a fine fine of 1,000-2,000 roubles, and legal entities like corporations to a fine of 10,000-20,000 roubels. Several of our Congress persons and Senators would be swimming in fines as well.
Kirill Cherkasov, the first deputy chairman of the State Duma agrarian committee, pointed out that tight regulation is needed since many GMOs have been insinuated into foreign market via the World Trade Organization. Cherkasov suggested that a package of amendments to the national laws regulating technical and economic aspects of GMO-related activities should be submitted by its autumn session.
Sometimes it seems our country has traded places with the cold war communists of days past. We may not agree with everything that Vladimir Putin does in the name of Russia, but at least he is willing to do what our President is not in the US – protect his people from genetically modified foods by keeping them out of the country.

The Common Sense Show
The BLM has tucked their tail between their legs and run for cover. Sheriff Mack, the other sheriffs, various state legislators, Oathkeepers and average people who make up our militias personify the words courage, integrity and honor. May God bless and protect every brave soul who went to the aid of a beleaguered family. Our American heroes prevented another Ruby Ridge and Americans should forever be grateful to all who went to the aid of Cliven Bundy. America still has many great people who are worthy of the descriptive term, hero. Cliven Bundy has also demonstrated to the world what is means to be an American and stand up to tyranny and win. Like so many overreaching federal agencies, when confronted, they are cowards and they tuck their collective tails between their legs and run for cover.
They Will Be BackAs has been widely reported, the Chinese have paid $4.5 billion dollars to build a solar plant on the Bundy property. The Clark County (NV) Commissioners are on the hook for that money. This is why one of their threatened to send anyone traveling to the aid of Bundy home in a body bag. There is absolutely no way that the Bundy Affair is over.
Sometimes, our personal life experiences prepare us in ways which helps us to understand an event in a manner that the general public will not see because the public does not have the experience. The events at Cliven Bundy’s property is something that I have lived through and I can see clearly what is happening and what is coming. This is much more than a land grab and a case of simple cronyism resulting in a land grab of the Bundy property. This kind of event has been happening and is happening as I write these words. Soon this kind of event will be commonplace.
Nearly all people reporting on this issue see it as a one-time resource grab involving Senator Harry Reid, his sons, the Clark County Commissioners and the Chinese government. The people reporting this are correct. However, this goes much, much further. Unfortunately, I have the experience to recognize this for what this is. Also, I have come across a Bureau of Land Management Policy Manual which spells out what is happening to Bundy and why.
I feel compelled to tell you at this point that my life was endangered when I exposed these connections in my neighborhood. While on the air with Annie DeRiso and Jim Marrs, the building I was in was shot at eight times. This event was recorded on the archives of the Republic Broadcasting Network. Additionally, a pair of men repeatedly tried to run me off the road one Saturday night approximately 6 miles from my home. The event was recorded from my 911 call which lasted 10 minutes, but the transcripts and recordings all disappeared. In both cases, law enforcement covered the crimes committed against me despite the fact that there were multiple witnesses to each event. Each event involved my revelations to the public about John McCain cronyism with the foreign owners of the Canamex Highway system and their plans to steal all property within my rural community. This is precisely why Cliven Bundy’s life is in danger. He is experiencing what I have lived through. You can bet your bottom dollar that the Bundy affair is just getting started and the following paragraphs will demonstrate why this is true.
The Arizona Coalition to Protect Personal Property Rights (ACPPR) vs. Sen. McCain’s Canamex Highway ForcesI live in rural Arizona approximately 20 miles north of metropolitan Phoenix and 20 miles south of Wickenburg, AZ. Over 10 years ago, 300 homeowners in our immediate area faced an undeclared de facto eminent domain action against us without so much as one dime being offered in compensation. My community responded to challenge by forming the ACPPR and I was asked to be the spokesperson and I later became the director.
My sleepy, rural area had grand designs placed upon us by the forces behind the North American Union and in particular the Canamex Highway which was to connect Mexico with Canada. The highway was to run 8 miles to the west of my home which should not have been a threat to the globalist forces behind this transportation corridor. However, my area was slated as a Canamex international multimodal hub. This meant that 6 miles to the east of home a railway hub, a trucking depository and a small auxiliary airport left over from WW II was to be converted to a small airport to service the goods and services coming into this hub. My community was caught between the highway and the multimodal hub. To make things worse, my community also sits upon the largest underground water aquifer in Arizona known as the Hassayampa. The globalists needed our water to service the hub and they could not allow 300 homes to drain the reservoir. Therefore, the McCain forces convinced local politicians to legislate against us and strip us of all property rights in attempt to force us out over a period of time without paying us for the loss of our homes.
Over an eight year period, I was able to convince several of our Maricopa County Commissioners and a good number of State Legislators as to what was truly happening us. We were able to build a coalition and turn back the McCain group who was working on behalf of the foreign ownership of the Canamex. In short, they wanted our water and our land to build a monolithic infrastructure hub. My subsequent media appearances designed to expose this tyranny is what led me to do the broadcasting and writing that I do today.
PLEASE HEED MY WORDS OF WARNING: I AM TELLING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT WHAT IS HAPPENING TO CLIVEN BUNDY IS VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COMMUNITY AND THIS IS COMING TO YOUR COMMUNITY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
The powers that be wanted my community’s water, the globalists want Bundy’s land to build a monolithic energy hub which is powered by solar energy controlled by the Chinese and they want to put it on Bundy’s property and I have the document that proves these claims.
Solar Energy ZonesI have discovered the existence of a BLM document which introduces America to a new Agenda 21 land designation and it called a “Solar Energy Zone”. The smoking gun BLM document is entitled:
Regional Mitigation Strategy for theDry Lake Solar Energy ZoneTechnical Note 444Produced by:Bureau of Land ManagementMarch 2014http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/wo/blm_library/tech_notes.Par.29872.File.dat/TN_444.pdfThe BLM produced document carefully spells out all the Agenda 21 precautions to protect the environment and indigenous wildlife in these newly created Solar Energy Zones. The document specifically mentions the tortoise and it need to be protected, which is at issue in the Bundy case. Every form of species is protected within these Solar Energy Zones except for humans and nothing is mentioned about how land will be acquired through the eminent domain process.
The document makes it clear that land can be acquired to protect local species which could be threatened. This is how the federal government is getting around declaring eminent domain and paying people fair market value for their land, prior to stealing it. This is exactly what my community went through in the last decade in fighting against the Canamex Highway.
Reid, Clark County Commissioners, the Chinese and Cronyism“The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations”.
Most people view the recent events directed at Bundy to be a case of political and economic cronyism. There is certainly that element. However, this is much bigger than the corrupt Harry Reid and his sons. The next few sections will begin to connect the relevant dots and a clearer picture will begin to emerge.
TreasonNoted researcher, Vicky Davis, sent me the location of the proposed solar farm where Bundy’s property is located and its neighbor is Nellis Air Force Base. It’s right there and Harry Reid is aiding and abetting the Red Chinese to locate a facility close the AFB. The same overlap is mentioned in the previously identified BLM Solar Energy Zones document.
When I was serving as the Spokesperson and later as the Director of the ACPPR, I noticed that nearly all Canamex Highways were located adjacent to a military base. I also noticed that the existence of an inland port was located in the same area. And we know that the Chinese are heavily involved in the control of inland ports.
Connecting the DotsIt is time to connect the dots on one leg of this land grab in Nevada. The I-15 Canamex Highway runs adjacent to the planned theft of the Bundy property. In this location, a new Agenda 21 land designation is emerging and it is called a “Solar Energy Zone”. Solar Energy Zones will connect the variables of the Canamex, the evisceration of private property rights, land use delineated in the Agenda 21 Wildlands, the control of all transportation corridors within the United States and the ultimate betrayal, the Chinese control of all military bases in the United States.
How do I know this? First, I have lived through the same resource theft, property rights grab with the Canamex. Additionally, in Arizona, we are also establishing a solar farm system that has all the hallmark traits of what is going on at the Bundy property. The Arizona state government is cooperating with various federal agencies to build a massive solar farm 70 miles southeast of Phoenix. The Arizona solar project is located adjacent to Luke AFB flight operations and it is near another energy resource, the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant. As an aside, I was contacted by a Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant employee this week. FEMA has been on sight in a surprise inspection and my source has expressed apprehension and surprise at this development. Does anyone else smell a false flag coming? Also, as time goes on, I am certain this will connect the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant to the solar farm.
The Bundy area contains the exact same set of variables as what I am seeing here in Arizona in that we see the Canamex Highway nearby, a land grab, proximity to a military base and proximity to another large energy resource, the nearby Hoover Dam. I suspect that I am now going to hear from many people across the country who are going to now connect these dots in their home state and see this for what it is.
If the Chinese gain control of all new energy (i.e. solar power), can imagine what your energy costs will be? Our problems with this plot extend far beyond energy costs.
Coincidence or Conspiracy?
Chinese Solar on Bundy Ranch Arizona Solar Farm
Chinese money backing projectChinese money involved in projectCreation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone”Creation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone”Located near a Canamex Highway (I-15)Located near a Canamex Highway (1-10)Located near a major energy source (Hoover Dam)Located near a major energy source (Palo Verde Nuclear Plant)Located near a major military base (Nellis AFB)Located near a major military base ancillary facilities (Luke AFB)If I were a betting man, I would say that the Chinese will soon have control of all interstate highways that are connected to the Canamex Highway Corridor system. This would be a precursor event to an invasion in which an invading force would secure all transportation routes.
It is becoming clear that these Solar Energy Zones will be merged with other major energy sources (i.e. hydroelectric and nuclear power). This will potentially give the Chinese complete control over our energy and they can charge whatever they want.
Further, placing Chinese interests near a major military installation can be construed as another precursor to invasion. The bases could easily be neutralized before they could stop the advance of an invading blue-helmet military force.
ConclusionMy fellow Americans, we are seeing this government hand off all future energy to the Chinese. They are stealing American land to do so, through agencies such as the EPA and BLM. The Chinese will soon be occupying the bases adjacent to these Solar Energy Zones. This should scare the hell out of all us. We are about to be occupied by Communist Chinese forces and our federal government agencies are a party to this take over. I will be writing on the military aspect of this threat in a future article.

In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

Nevada Standoff Intensifies: Peaceful Protestors Tazed, Manhandled, and Injured by BLM Thugs at the Bundy Ranch
By: Andrew Mastrocola
Guerilla Media Network, GMN Telemedia, has uploaded this video to you tube that shows the blatant disregard these BLM agents have for peaceful protestors. One 57 year old lady who is a cancer survivor and mother of 11 children was tossed to the ground and sustained a few injuries. One man was tazed 3 times. Protestors were threatened with K-9's. Reports from people at the rally:
The cattle are dying and being slaughtered and buried in the desert by federal Agents... The protesters tried to stop a convoy of trucks and backhoes coming off of the PRIVATE land owned by the Bundy's, so they could be inspected by a sheriff ... The agents then started tazing the protesters and throwing women to the ground
BLM authorities were to hold a press conference at 5 pm Pacific time today and conveniently no speakers showed therefore us press people were only able to listen to elevator music.
Patriot Farmers are being systematically attacked all across Amerika. Raw milk farmers, heritage breed hog farmers, cattle ranchers, and even home gardeners. This is a war on for your food. These are the farmers that can feed the resistance in the event of a revolution. Patriots, tea partiers, occupiers, in fact everyone who eats needs to come to the aid of this Patriotic American farmer. Cliven Bundy stands for all of us, no matter what letter we have for political affiliations. Wake up Amerika to the food tyranny being waged on our nation. They have already ran many thousands of farmers out of business, and this should make one think about what can happen to a nation when you become dependant on foreign nations to feed your family. Has anyone noticed how much food is imported at your local grocery stores?

Today, Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-4) introduced two new bills, the “Milk Freedom Act of 2014,” H.R. 4307, and the “Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014,” H.R. 4308, with a bipartisan coalition of 20 lawmakers. In his press release announcing the new legislation, Rep. Massie indicated these were the first in a planned series of Food Freedom legislation aimed at improving consumer choice and protecting local farmers.
“As a producer of grass-fed beef, I am familiar with some of the difficulties small farmers face when marketing fresh food directly to consumers. Our bills would make it easier for families to buy wholesome milk directly from farmers by reversing the criminalization of dairy farmers who offer raw milk,” said Rep. Massie. “The federal government should not punish farmers for providing customers the foods they want, and states should be free to set their own laws regulating food safety.”
Raw milk is fresh milk that has not been pasteurized, and may contain beneficial nutrients that have not been eliminated by the pasteurization process. Although Congress has never passed legislation banning raw milk, the federal Food and Drug Administration has used their regulatory authority to prosecute farmers for selling raw milk.
The “Milk Freedom Act of 2014” would provide relief to local farmers, small producers, and others who have been harassed, fined, and in some cases even prosecuted for the “crime” of distributing unpasteurized milk. This bill would prohibit the federal government from interfering with the interstate traffic of raw milk products.
Likewise, the “Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014” would prevent the federal government from interfering with trade of unpasteurized, natural milk or milk products between states where distribution or sale of such products is already legal.
No provision of either bill would preempt or otherwise interfere with any state law.
Massie concluded, “Today, many people are paying more attention to the food they eat, what it contains, and how it is processed. Raw milk, which has been with us for thousands of years, is making a comeback among these discerning consumers. Personal choices as basic as ‘what we feed our families’ should not be limited by the federal government.”
During his time in Congress, C4L Chairman Ron Paul was a champion of food freedom and sponsored legislation similar to H.R. 4307. Understanding the Food Freedom issue is vital to understanding personal liberty. It shouldn’t be any of the government’s business what we put into our own bodies, or choose to eat or drink.
Campaign for Liberty is proud to announce our support of both measures and encourage you tocontact your representative and urge them to cosponsor H.R. 4307 and H.R. 4308.

George W. Bush, never looked so good, Bill Clinton, never looked so good, and now, Jimmy (and Rosalynn) Carter, never looked so good.
Today, America is going through some bad times, with a bad president. It’s not like we haven’t been through this before. We had the late ‘70’s and we had Carter, but things were no where near as bad in the late ‘70’s as they are today. The $17 trillion national debt alone, makes the previous sentence undeniably true, but in addition to that, today we have Obama.
Up until recently, say January of 2009, many people said (and correctly so) that Carter was the worst president we ever had, but there’s one thing one thing that I can say about Carter. I think that he didn’t want to appear that he didn’t care about what the people were going through.
In 1977 Carter ordered that the thermostat at the White House be turned down to 65 degrees. Many people gave him grief for this, saying that it was a silly symbolic gesture that didn’t do actually do anything to help alleviate the energy crisis we were experiencing back then. Maybe that was true, but it at least he was trying to appear that he wasn’t going to exempt himself from what he expected from everyone else. Below is a video of .... continue reading
What is taking out millions of family farms and is there something that farmers can do to reverse the trend?
Food Freedom Discussion on Down the Rabbit Hole with Popeye; Guest: Pete Kennedy of the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund
On this edition of DTRH spends the first hour talking with Peter Kennedy, President and founding Board Member of the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund. They discuss the legal case of Farmer Mark Baker, a farmer who was suing the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) over the legality of its swine Invasive Species Order. The two of them also get into raw milk and food raids; How everyone is affected by food freedom, and the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund itself.
Mark Baker, who took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution has been forced to watch it be violated and trampled by the Michigan Attorney General, Bill Schuette, and Junior (Harold Martin assistant A.G.).
Your food source maybe next on the list for big brother government intrusion, and if that day comes to your farm will you stand as this Patriot farmer, or will you bow down and submit to being their slave?
The Baker's will need your help to continue farming, please help them in any way that you can. I urge you to go to http://bakersgreenacres.com/ and help them keep the family farm.
