This is something that all Americans should understand and be made aware of. Friday night of St. Patrick’s Day weekend (March 16, 2012), President Obama signed an executive order to control all U.S. Resources: water, FOOD, energy, transportation, commerce, etc. in times of war OR peace. Two similar executive orders have been signed by presidents in the past (both based on the Defense Production Act of 1950) but they were only declared during times of war!
This could be in response to preparations against Iran, and the president may have placed the United States on a war footing, notes the Huffington Post.
According to the release, stockpiling or prioritizing will not require a state of war. In Section 310 entitled, “Critical Items,” the government is empowered “to take appropriate action to ensure that critical components, critical technology items, essential materials, and industrial resources are available from reliable sources when needed to meet defense requirements during peacetime, graduated mobilization, and national emergency. Appropriate action may include restricting contract solicitations to reliable sources, restricting contract solicitations to domestic sources (pursuant to statutory authority), stockpiling critical components, and developing substitutes for critical components or critical technology items.”
This order could be the beginning of a plan that has significant reach into every garage and grocery store shelf.
The entire executive order can be found on the White House Briefing Room page: Executive Order—National Defense Resources Preparedness.
Here is some background as to why this executive order may have been issued?
What we’ve got is a dire circumstance in the United States. You have to understand folks that almost fifty percent of the entire population of the United States is on some sort of government aid, particularly with regard to food. We’ve got about fifty million families or people on food stamps, we’ve got people on disability, we’ve got people that are in retirement—about half the population in some way or another works for the government. And you put this all together with the high cost of food right now as a result of gas prices going nuts, and the shortages and the problems connected with the threatened war and the fact that we’re dependent on foreign gas and fuel and foreign oil.
If you were to orchestrate over the last ten years the complete control or destruction of the food supply of a country, you could go down the list of things that have occurred. The bank bailout, for example. After that bailout occurred, we stopped agricultural loans, so as a result, family farmers weren’t able to get the funds to plant and harvest food. The dependency on foreign oil and the dependency on foreign food go hand in hand.
We have ethanol, which takes the food out of the mouths of our people and puts it into our gas tanks; it was actually intended to decrease the cost of fuel, and now is increasing it and pushing the gas prices up, prices that you’re all seeing every single day. And the gas prices are going up with the food prices. We have the environmental push, which took irrigation water away from the farmers because of various critters that we need to save. The printing of money inflates our entire economy to the extent that literally thousands of families every day are falling further and further below the poverty line.
We allow commodities buyers to buy and sell our food, and the UN declares the sale of American food to help with the foreign deficit, as the result of all the debt that we have, and so we import 40 percent of our food and sell our food because we don’t have export limits on the sale of food. All of this comes to the fact that Americans right now are struggling to even buy the food that they can get.
What this order does, it allows the control of the sources, large sources of supply that are coming down through to those of you who can still afford to buy food. And what happens is, when that is taken over, it will be redirected and controlled by the distribution of the government on behalf of the people.
So even if you have put together a little sack of gold for the time when things might get difficult, you will stand in the same bread line with the folks that have their 30-year retirement checks, along with the disabled people who have their disability checks, along with the chronically unemployed, and everyone will stand in those bread lines and it will be distributed from the top down through those lines, and you will not have control over buying your food. What happens when you have virtually a national security emergency in peace times, it’s a result of all the problems connected with food right now, with the worldwide famine and other countries buying our food. And in this situation you literally lose control over the capacity, no matter how well off or poor you are, to go and get food.
How can people use GOFoods to help themselves?
As a little bit of background, as you all know, the stance that we take at GOFoods is that food is the greatest dependency we have, and the vision that we have is to feed and prosper families. As a company, we have the ability in working with food, the most important commodity that the human being can have, and save, share, and serve the best food on the planet. It is our patriotic duty, but more important it’s our moral responsibility. While we can take care of ourselves, our families, and our loved ones, we must serve our food to others and help them save enough for a food savings account for the time when we might not be able to even afford the food, or do not want to stand in the bread line and be in the way of the people that can’t do it for themselves. And so we must share the message that it’s absolutely essential that our people be able to take responsibility for themselves and their families.
Those of us who have the ability—have the moral and patriotic duty—to take care of ourselves so that the government organizations—who are planning to have to take care of those who can’t take care of themselves—can go do that, and we will not have to be affected by the difficult times that will face those who can’t take care of themselves. The line has been drawn in the sand, folks. This is no longer just a nice business opportunity and a chance to share this wonderful food with each other and to save money on our budgets and things. We are in a situation where we can do our share and our part to help literally save America. We have to take responsibility for ourselves and each other. We have to realize that if this order was signed, it was signed with the intention it’s going to have to be used, and when it has to be used, it will have to be used to take care of those who can’t take care of themselves, and we do not want to be in that situation. If you have to go stand in a bread line and trade whatever you have for a loaf of bread and a bowl of rice, essentially this is not what we as independent free Americans want to be.
But the most important thing—let’s think about it—if we care for our loved ones, if we care for each other, and if we understand what we have, we have the most reasonably priced food on the planet that can be used daily as well as be put into a savings account of food. Everyone has this ability, even if we are below the poverty line, to go and share this food enough to earn our own food, and to earn our savings account, so we can be independent. This is happening now, and this is why we created this company and these recipes that we can be free, and we can serve, save, and share the message of self reliance, freedom, and liberty as Americans with each other and those we love.
