With extreme weather and the possibility of social disruption is quickly leading to the distinct probability of food shortages. Make no mistake about it, the globalists will not hesitate to use food as a weapon. In fact, they are have already rehearsed the strategy. Open the Video
The combination of the wettest planting season in U.S. history, a catastrophic trade war with China and economic conditions that are brutal for small farms has produced a “perfect storm” for U.S. farmers. Farm bankruptcies have already risen to the highest level in 7 years, but many expect that they will soon surge to all-time record highs. Due to the incredibly wet weather, millions upon millions of acres of prime U.S. farmland will not be planted with crops at all this year. And millions of acres that do get planted will yield a lot less than usual because of the wretched conditions. Meanwhile, the U.S. will export far less corn and soybeans than usual this year due to our trade conflicts with China and Mexico. With much less international demand, U.S. farmers are going to have an increasingly difficult time trying to make a profit on anything they are able to grow. In the end, thousands of farmers will not be able to recover from this crisis and will be forced out of the industry for good.
According to USA Today, “a near biblical parade of misfortune” has created “the worst farm crisis since the 1980s”…
American farmers already plagued by a near biblical parade of misfortune that includes years of low prices and a trade war with China are now grappling with record Midwest rain that will likely prevent a large portion of this year’s crop from even getting planted. The troubles have created the worst farm crisis since the 1980s, when oversupplies and a U.S. grain embargo against the Soviet Union forced thousands of farmers into bankruptcy, experts say.
So we can definitely say that this is the worst farm crisis in a generation, but the truth is that this crisis is far from over.
By the time it is over, we may look back and say that this was the worst farm crisis that the U.S. has ever seen.
The biggest problem for farmers so far in 2019 has been endless rain and flooding. Farmers kept waiting for a break in the weather that never came, and at this point the number of acres that have not been planted with crops is “unprecedented”…
Rain and flooding that began in March have kept farmers from planting a major portion of their crops during the normal mid-April to mid-May season in states like Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and Michigan. As of Sunday, 39% of soybean acres have been planted in the 18 largest producing states, compared with an average 79% over the past five years, Agriculture Department figures show. Sixty-seven percent of corn acres are in the ground, vs. an average 96%. Such delays are unprecedented, Newton says.
What this means is that the amount of food that America’s farmers will produce this year is going to be way, way below normal. For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “Due To Cataclysmic Flooding, Millions Upon Millions Of Acres Of U.S. Farmland Will Not Be Planted With Crops This Year”.
And to make matters worse, another monster storm is going to move through the middle of the country this week.
In fact, we are being told that some areas could see “a foot or more of rain”…
However, there is the potential for some areas of the Interstate 10 and 20 corridors to receive a foot or more of rain from the multiple-day event that may last through the weekend. Rainfall of this magnitude will trigger street and poor drainage area flooding, initially. Motorists should be prepared for road closures, substantial delays and the need to alter their routes. To drive through flooded roadways is extremely dangerous.
For some farms, this will be the final nail in the coffin.
For others, their coffins were nailed shut a long time ago.
And things had already gotten really tough for U.S. farmers leading into 2019. Net farm income fell by almost half between 2013 and 2018, and so U.S. farmers desperately needed a bounce back year in a major way.
Instead, they are experiencing a year from hell.
Of course it isn’t just the weather. African Swine Fever and our trade conflicts with China and Mexico are making things extremely difficult as well…
There’s more. An African swine fever virus could suppress the production of Chinese pigs – which feed on soybeans – for years. And Trump last week threatened tariffs on all Mexican imports to prod the country into curtailing illegal immigration from Central America. Mexico vowed retaliation that could mean duties on U.S. exports such as corn, dairy and beef.
According to one report, China now plans to put purchases of U.S. soybeans “on pause”, and they are apparently turning to Brazil to fill their soybean needs.
If the trade war lasts long enough, this shift in the marketplace may become permanent and U.S. soybean exports to China may never be the same again.
So what are U.S. soybean farmers supposed to do? Without demand from China, thousands of soybean farmers face financial ruin. Many of them will be praying for a trade agreement, but at this point it doesn’t appear that one will happen for the foreseeable future.
I know that a lot of people living on both coasts still do not get it, but this crisis is absolutely devastating communities all across the heartland of America.
And that should greatly concern all of us, because if they do not produce food, we do not eat.
This is a major national crisis, and the mainstream media has not paid nearly enough attention to it.
Shame on them, and this is yet another example that shows why confidence in the mainstream media has never been lower in our history.
It looks like 2019 c upould be the worst year for U.S. agriculture in modern American history by a very wide margin. As you will see below, millions upon millions of acres of U.S. farmland will go unused this year due to cataclysmic flooding. And many of the farmers that did manage to plant crops are reporting extremely disappointing results.
The 12 month period that concluded at the end of April was the wettest 12 month period in U.S. history, and more storms just kept on coming throughout the month of May. And now forecasters are warning of another series of storms this week, and following that it looks like a tropical storm will pummel the region. As Bloomberg has pointed out, we have truly never seen a year like this ever before…
There has never been a spring planting season like this one. Rivers topped their banks. Levees were breached. Fields filled with water and mud. And it kept raining.
Many farmers just kept waiting for the flooding and the rain to end so that they could plant their crops, but that didn’t happen.
At this point it is too late for many farmers to plant crops at all, and it is now being projected that 6 million acres of farmland that is usually used for corn will go completely unsown this year…
There has never been weather like this, either. The 12 months that ended with April were the wettest ever for the contiguous U.S. That spurred other firsts: Corn plantings are further behind schedule for this time of year than they have been in records dating to 1980 and analysts are predicting an unheard-of 6 million acres intended for the grain may simply go unsown this year.
And we could actually see even more soybean acres go unplanted, because the latest crop progress report shows that soybean planting is even further behind…
The Crop Progress indicated just 67% of corn was planted in 18 key corn-producing states. The 2014-18 average for corn planted by June 2nd is 96%, so planting is off 30.2% in comparison. Corn planting has been at an all-time low percentage for the last three reports and remains behind schedule in 17 of the 18 states monitored. Soybean planting is behind in 16 of the 18 key soybean-producing states, according to the report. So far, just 39% of soybean planting has taken place, compared to the five-year average of 79% by June 2nd, meaning soybean planting is off 50.6%.
In the end, we could easily see more than 10 million acres of U.S. farmland go completely unused this year.
And please don’t assume that the acres that have been planted are going to be okay. In Nebraska, farmer Ed Brummels said that conditions are so bad that it is “like we are trying to plant on top of a lake!”…
It’s like we are trying to plant on top of a lake! Planting will be over soon as farmers continue to be frustrated with these very saturated conditions.
When you plant fields that are absolutely saturated with water, the results can be extremely disappointing, and that is what we are hearing all over the nation.
Here is just one example…
In Keota, Iowa, Lindsay Greiner sowed his 700 acres of corn toward the end of April — and then wasn’t able to get into his soaked fields for five weeks. He’s expecting much lower yields this year than last. The crop right now is yellow. “It should be green,” he said. “It looks so bad.”
Farmers in the middle of the country desperately need things to dry out for an extended period of time.
But that is not going to happen any time soon.
In fact, meteorologists are telling us that more storms are going to hammer the middle of the country over the next few days…
The situation does not look to improve for farmers in the U.S. Corn Belt. AccuWeather is predicting the pattern of rounds of showers and thunderstorms to continue, with storms over part of the flood-stricken areas into midweek. Also, the southern half of the Corn Belt is in the path of downpours expected later this week. “If you’re along the Ohio River and you don’t have your corn planted by Wednesday, you may not plant anything additional because you may get three inches of rain between Thursday and Saturday,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Jason Nicholls.
Sadly, some areas could see “up to 5 inches of rain”, and needless to say that could be absolutely devastating for many farmers.
And then after that, a weather system that could soon be named “Tropical Storm Barry” is likely to move into the region…
To make matters worse, rain from a developing tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico could bring additional rainfall to the region: “Tropical moisture from the western Gulf of Mexico may begin impacting parts of south Texas on Tuesday,” the National Weather Service said. The weather system, which would be named Tropical Storm Barry if its winds reach 39 mph, is now sitting in the Gulf just east of Mexico.
2019 is turning out to be a “perfect storm” for U.S. farmers, and many of them will never recover from this.
Meanwhile, flooding continues to intensify along the major rivers in the middle of the country. According to Missouri Governor Mike Parson, almost 400 roads have now been closed in his state…
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson was touring flooded areas Monday in the northeast part of the state, where there have been around a dozen water rescues. Statewide, nearly 400 roads are closed, including part of U.S. 136. Locks and dams upstream of St. Louis are shut down as the Mississippi River crests at the second-highest level on record in some communities. Midwestern rivers have flooded periodically since March, causing billions of dollars of damage to farmland, homes and businesses from Oklahoma and Arkansas and up to Michigan.
This flooding has been going on for months, and there is no end in sight.
In recent days, multiple levees in the state of Missouri have been breached, and a number of small towns are now totally under water…
The small town of Levasy in northwest Missouri’s Jackson County was under water Saturday after a levee breach along the Missouri River. Officials there were conducting water rescues by boat, according to the Associated Press, but no injuries were reported. In Howard County in central Missouri, the river topped a levee prompting evacuations in Franklin, New Franklin and a stretch along Highway 5 from the Boonville Bridge to New Franklin, AP reported. The zone essentially covers all of the Missouri River bottom from Petersburg to Rocheport. In West Alton and Alton, where the Missouri and Mississippi rivers meet, floodwaters are expected to rise another 3 feet by Wednesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Some buildings in Alton are already surrounded by water, and the flood plain in West Alton is covered.
This is a nightmare that never seems to end, but many Americans living on both coasts don’t seem to be taking this disaster very seriously.
But they should be taking it seriously because if farmers don’t grow our food, we don’t eat.
The food that we are eating right now is from past production. The crops that are being grown now represent food that we will be eating in the future, and right now it looks like a whole lot less food will be produced than we expected.
That means that food prices will start going up, and they will probably keep going up for the foreseeable future.
We are moving into extremely uncertain times, but most Americans don’t seem to understand this yet.
For a very long time we have been able to take stability for granted, but now everything is starting to change. Those that are wise will be able to adapt to the changing conditions, but unfortunately it appears that most Americans believe that there is simply nothing to be concerned about
According to this May 31st story over at USA Today, what they’re calling a “stuck” weather pattern has resulted in over a month of stormy weather mayhem all across the center of the country, one that’s fueled hundreds of tornadoes and boatloads of rain and flooding, and all of this following months and months of Winter weather carnage across much of the same region.
As we read in this new story over at USA Today and see and hear in the 1st video at the bottom of this story, what’s being called a ‘slow motion disaster’ is now taking place all along the Arkansas River with every large community surrounding it expected to see major flooding within the next 7 to 10 days. And with all of the rain and flooding posing major challenges to Arkansas’ aging levee systems, weather forecasters are warning that more heavy rain is on the way.
As we had reported on ANP back on May 24th, following devastating winter weather and snow that continued into May, record flooding throughout the Midwest had left over a million acres of farmland unplanted and underwater in America’s ‘breadbasket’, leading to what many believe will be food shortages and food price hikes ahead. And as we’ll explore within this ANP story, while it may very well be just a ‘coincidence’, the record flooding that we’re witnessing now taking place as seen in the map at the top of this story is largely where America was ‘divided’ into two parts in the so-called ‘future map of America’ that you can see below with the flooding of the Mississippi River quite literally dividing America in half.
The map below was taken from this June 2017 story at Forbes titled “The Shocking Doomsday Maps Of The World And The Billionaire Escape Plans”. While Forbes reports the map is supposed to show what America might look like following a future ‘pole shift’ according to its designer Gordon-Michael Scallion, their story also mentions ‘bizarre weather patterns’ striking the Earth, along with volcanic activity, as being some of the reasons why so many billionaires are preparing for an apocalyptic event. And as we also learn within that 1st video, all of this is also happening at a time when FEMA is holding their “Shaken Fury” earthquake drills simulating a 7.7 magnitude earthquake ripping apart America at the New Madrid Seismic Zone, of which the flooding Mississippi River runs directly through. Those exercises are being held now through June 6th.
(If you appreciate stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this battle for the future for America.
As we had also reported within our May 24th story on ANP, according to a number of different people who pay attention to the kinds of weather events we’re witnessing now, the ‘stuck’ weather pattern that has been delivering ‘weather mayhem’ to the middle of the country could very well be ‘weather warfare’ upon America. So we’ll explore one theory below that this weather warfare upon America is intentionally being carried out to divide our nation quite literally in half while also destroying our nation’s primary means of producing food. As Henry Kissinger once said, “Who controls the food supply controls the people”.
While the mainstream media would tell us to put on our tinfoil hats just for talking about such a subject, as we had proven in our May 24th story, ‘weather modification’ or ‘geoengineering’ is very real whether or not so-called ‘authorities’ want to admit to it. Some of the examples that we used within that story to prove weather modification is real we’ve republished directly below.
Newsweek had reported back in May of 2018 in this story titled “CHINA MAKES IT RAIN WITH A WEATHER CONTROL NETWORK TWICE THE SIZE OF TEXAS” that China’s weather modification system works by seeding clouds with silver iodide particles that trigger them to release moisture.
The process involves positioning burner devices at the base of mountain ranges to send immense gusts of hot fumes and iodide upward into the sky. This prompts the clouds to produce ice crystals that descend onto Earth as rain and snow. The additional water is expected to greatly increase harvest productivity and food production in the area.
We also brought up remarks made by former deep state talking head John Brennan while he was the leader of the CIA and actually said the following to a gathering of the Council on Foreign Relations back in June of 2016.
“Another example is the array of technologies—often referred to collectively as geoengineering—that potentially could help reverse the warming effects of global climate change. One that has gained my personal attention is stratospheric aerosol injection, or SAI, a method of seeding the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat, in much the same way that volcanic eruptions do.
An SAI program could limit global temperature increases, reducing some risks associated with higher temperatures and providing the world economy additional time to transition from fossil fuels. The process is also relatively inexpensive—the National Research Council estimates that a fully deployed SAI program would cost about $10 billion yearly.
As promising as it may be, moving forward on SAI would raise a number of challenges for our government and for the international community. On the technical side, greenhouse gas emission reductions would still have to accompany SAI to address other climate change effects, such as ocean acidification, because SAI alone would not remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
On the geopolitical side, the technology’s potential to alter weather patterns and benefit certain regions at the expense of others could trigger sharp opposition by some nations. Others might seize on SAI’s benefits and back away from their commitment to carbon dioxide reductions. And, as with other breakthrough technologies, global norms and standards are lacking to guide the deployment and implementation of SAI.”
And in that May 24th story we didn’t even touch upon weather modification programs in US states as this story over at TSLN from June 7th of 2018 titled “North Dakota Cloud Seeding Planes Get The Green Light” confirms. From their story.
As the summer weather rolls in, a very moody mother-nature sets the stage for natural weather modification in most states, be it drought, flooding, hail, etc., but in North Dakota, a program designed to increase rainfall and decrease hail damage has some residents questioning the science behind man-made weather modification.
Some Hettinger County residents have been trying to put an end to North Dakota Cloud Modification Project for several years. The program has pilots seeding clouds with silver iodide and dry ice to increase precipitation.
“Our goal is to end weather modification in North Dakota all together,” reported Jamie Kouba, a farmer in the county. “It’s a waste of taxpayer dollars and it’s causing harm to the citizens.”
While Hettinger County does not seed clouds anymore, six counties in the state still do — Bowman, Burke, McKenzie, Mountrail, Ward and Williams. The Ward County Commission voted last year to halt cloud seeding, but the state’s attorney Roza Larson said the Ward County Weather Modification Board has the authority to decide whether to go over the voters’ heads, so to speak.
Soooo, if previously a weather modification skeptic, do you still think that there is ‘no such thing as weather modification’ after reading that? Seriously? What is very disturbing to us is the very last line of that last paragraph. “The Ward County Weather Modification Board has the authority to decide whether to go over the voters’ heads”. Who put the weather mod demons in charge? If it’s like that in North Dakota, one could easily venture a bet that it’s like that all across the country, too, hence the total secrecy surrounding weather modification projects and geoengineering from the msm and politicians. “It’s over our heads”. Literally.
We also had pointed out within that May 24th story all of the different weather modification patents that are fully documented online for anyone to read. The best source out there for all of those patents in one place is right here at the website of Dane Wigington, an extensive list of weather modification patents going all the way back to 1920. Just a few of them are shown below.

As Steve Quayle had written many years in his must-read book “Weather Wars & Un-Natural Disasters”, “technology will make available, to the leaders of the major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised… Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm.” Could such technologies also be used to help split America in two?
With all of the record flooding going on in the middle of America and weather forecasters warning of much more rain to come, we had to wonder, can these heavy rains and record flooding trigger earthquakes? We didn’t have to look too far to find out. As this story over at the New Scientist reports, huge downpours of rain can trigger earthquakes in landscapes riddled with caves and channels by increasing pressure within underlying rock, suggests a new study.
It was already known that rainfall could cause tremors, but the amount of water needed is much more than previously thought, says Steve Miller, a geologist at the University of Bonn, Germany.
In recent years, geologists have documented small earthquakes that occurred after heavy rainfall in Germany, Switzerland and France. All were low in magnitude – meaning they could be detected by seismographs, but not felt by humans.
Some experts have suggested that although the rainfall was heavy, the fact that rain could trigger an earthquake at all suggests that it takes extremely little to produce a tremor. They concluded that the Earth’s crust in a delicate balance, teetering on the edge of a slight shake-up at any moment.
With the New Madrid seismic zone already overdue for a killer quake that the mere thought of left two US Generals quaking, this June of 2016 story over at The Atlantic had reported that “not far from Memphis and St. Louis, 600 million years ago, the continent tried to rip in half. It failed.” And while that ‘attempt’ lacked the assistance of human beings, might our enemies use new clandestine weather warfare technologies against us to launch America into famine and in an attempt to split our continent in half?
As Steve Quayle warned his readers in an SQnote while linking to this story at Weather.com, “floods equal famine and weather warfare is destroying America’s ability to feed it’s people and is the ultimate clandestine weapon of war.” Steve also had warned in a note while linking to this story over at Strange Sounds last week, “what you are seeing is the total manipulation of weather warfare and geo-engineered storms”.
And while we’re unable to prove that weather warfare is being waged against America (and if ‘weather warfare’ was REALLY being carried out upon us right now in preparation of dividing and invading our nation, does anyone think that they’d tell us?), great damage has already been done to the lands where America has gotten much of our food going back 100’s of years, causing farmers to leave the profession and hinting of spiking food prices and famine ahead.
The Oroville Dam is in crisis and it ready to break..The CALEXIT movement, designed by the globalists to extricate California from the United States is dead and has been supplanted by Paul Preston’s New California 51st movement.
Had Calexit been successful, it would have collapsed the economy of the United States. The withdrawal of the agriculturally rich region of the Central Valley of California, would have produced massive food inflation and even spot famines. Thirty percent of America’s retail crosses Interstate 5 as it makes its way east from California’s ports. The elimination of this avenue of commerce would result in the destruction of the American economy. CALEXIT, run by former members of the Obama administration was designed to collapse the United States economy and produce massive food shortages. By the way, former Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder, is the spokesperson for CALEXIT. Thank goodness CALEXIT has failed. Or has it?
The Oroville Dam
As has been documented by Paul Preston and myself on multiple occasions on this website, the Oroville Dam is near collapse. If the dam collapses, the following will happen:
A 30 foot wall of water, traveling at 75 MPH will roar out of the dam and race towards Sacramento. A 24 foot wall of water will enter Sacramento within 45 minutes to 3 hours depending on whose figures one cites. Please note that it would take 72 hours to evacuate Sacramento. One million people will be in the path of the raging water with no high ground to escape to. Beside the death and astronomical loss of life, ensuing looting and violence would become commonplace due to the shortage of resources. This will become the biggest natural disaster of all time an the chaos that would follow would be mind-boggling. This "danger" to the people would allow the UN to enter the United States, in force, in order to "protect lives".
The dam is less than 6 feet from over-topping which will cause this earthen dam to fail. The spillway has failed and the California Department of Water Resources is covering up this fact despite the fact that they are working on the dam 24/7. It is interesting to note that the nearly-bankrupt California will immediately gain $1 billion in federal disaster money. Further, the collapse of the dam will bring in the United Nations under the Kigali principles. And where the CALEXIT movement failed to destroy the United States, because of the failure of the movement, they will succeed when the Oroville Dam fails.
When the dam fails, retail traffic will not cross Interstate 5 and the entire Central Valley will not be able to produce crops. The globalists will win, California will be destroyed and the previously described issues will take place.
Implementation Will of the Kigali Principles Will Follow the Failure of the Oroville Dam
The following is from the Associated Press and was published this past July. It validates everything that I have been saying for the past 3 years. The UN is here and they are going to be used to subjugate the people of the United States.
From the AP as reported on Fox News: UNITED NATIONS (May 11, 2016)–
The United States is announcing its support for a set of principles that give a green light for U.N. peacekeeping troops and police to use force to protect civilians in armed conflicts. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power told a high-level U.N. meeting Wednesday focusing on the responsibility to protect civilians that the United States was “proud” and “humbled” to join 28 other countries that have pledged to abide by the 18 pledges. U.N. peacekeepers from these 29 countries are now required to act in cases where civilians are in danger.
"The Kigali Principles are designed to make sure that civilians are not abandoned by the international community again," she said, recalling how U.N. peacekeepers left Rwanda before the 1994 genocide and Srebrenica before the 1995 massacre. (Editor’s Note: If you impose the New World Order and the elimination of nationalism, you are threatening your fellow citizens and are ripe for UN intervention). These reports also appeared in the London Guardian, ABC, NBC and the rest of the whole cast of characters that we call the mainstream media.
CALEXIT and the UN
CALEXIT and the United Nations are linked together.
The following was Obama’s parting gift to President elect Donald Trump. From the United States Institute of Peace:
"Implementing the 'Kigali Principles' for Peacekeeping. ... While they are framed around the protection of civilians, the responsible implementation of the Principles would address much broader challenges that undermine the effectiveness of peacekeeping operations conducted in volatile situations. December 14, 2016
This was the complete giveaway of American sovereignty by former President Obama and Secretary of State, John Kerry.
CALEXIT, it has always been about Calexit as the primary way to break up the United States. The Deep State cannot count on the participation of the United States military in a coup against the elected government, even if Hillary Clinton had become the Commander-In-Chief. With the candidacy of the Donald Trump picking up steam in 2016, the Deep State and the globalists forged a joint plan to takeover the United States by inciting domestic unrest and then bringing in the United Nations to take control of the country under the guise of providing humanitarian aid. This plan was the brainchild of the globalists who were afraid of losing control of the United States because of the rising tide of populism. California was chosen as ground zero to act out the new United Nations policies called the Kigali Principles. These principles were negotiated with the United Nations by Samantha Powers on behalf of Obama and the Deep State. This conspiracy consisted of the following sequential actions which were to be carried out:
Create massive domestic unrest in California stemming from CALEXIT and the absolute defiance federal authority which would cause the federal government to bring in its own peacekeeping force. Import massive amounts of MS-13 and ISIS operatives to form a 5th column headquartered in California but the subsequent and planned unrest would reach across the nation. For example, Minnesota talk show host, Kathy Rubio stated on The Common Sense Show that MS-13 had a massive presence in the Twin Cities after receiving paramilitary training in El Salvador. When violence breaks out, it will begin in California, but the rest of the country will be consumed by violence, all of which is designed to result in a United Nations intervention. California, by plan, would descend into absolute violence which is why the aforementioned terrorists were brought into the country in 2014 during the so-called Central American immigration invasion. I documented the increased presence and admittance of MS-13 into the US and this was made possible by a United Nations/DHS joint operation. Let nature take its course and then bring in the United Nations to subdue America. In Part Three, I will present the complete operational plan. '
There is no doubt that some will call this crazy conspiracy nonsense. Therefore, it is necessary to bring in the undeniable documentation with regard for the United Nations to spring into action and takeover this country by using a 29 nation security force headed by the Communist Chinese.
Just How Cozy Is the Relationship Between CALEXIT and the UN?
Calexit’s plan was to originally depart from the US and then become a protectorate of the United Nations. This would grant California the ability to call for UN help. And if things go badly in California, then CALEXIT officials could call on the UN to protect it from US military forces that would be called into deal with liberal, CALEXIT politicians under the Insurrection Act of 1807.
The following photo depicts just how cozy the relationship is between CALEXIT and the United Nations.
Please note the “fine print” in the photo above. This is the banner that represented CALEXIT when they opened an embassy in Moscow. Why President Trump has not invoked the Logan Act and put these revolutionaries behind bars is a mystery.
What to Expect When the UN Shows Up In California
When the UN shows up, do you think they are going to be handing out donuts and cookies? The Kigali principles and past UN actions speak clearly to what is coming. Because the UN would be going public in the midst of an artificially created crisis, you can very well count on the following 17 principles.
1. Mass roundup of political dissidents. These will most likely be declared as terrorists and enemies of the state and will be linked to the precipitating false flag event, This will be the unfolding of Red and Blue Lists as spoken of by Steve Quayle for the last couple of decades. The NDAA will provide the pseudo legal authority to snatch key Americans out of their homes and off of the street. 2-Dusk to dawn curfews which are designed to keep the people from congregating and planning in concert to overthrow the omnipresent tyranny. 3-Rationing of essential resources (eg industrial assets) as specified in Executive Order (EO) 13603. 4-The seizing of personal assets such as food and water as specified in EO 13603. 5-Control over all food and water as specified in EO 13603. 6-The prohibition of weapons of any kind including guns, knives or chemicals which can be turned into explosives. It will become a capital crime to possess a weapon of any type. 7-The confiscation of property, homes and businesses as provided for in FM 39.4 and EO 13603. 8-Arrests without due process (NDAA). 9-Massive “papers please” checkpoints with intrusive searches. 0-Forced relocation of suspected American dissidents as specified by the Civilian Inmate Labor Program and the Civilian Conscription Program, under the Secretary of Labor, in EO 13603. This will mark the introduction of slave labor in American in which the conscripts are called (unpaid) consultants. 11-Forced conscription into various labor camps and even into the military (EO 13603). Also medical martial law policies could be invoked in the advent of the introduction of a pathogen 12-Outlawing of free speech. Social media censorship and the implementation of the Chinese “social credit system” are evidence of this already ongoing plot. 13-The installation of massive surveillance programs and the establishment of snitch programs which would mark the rebirth of former Secretary of DHS, Janet Napolitano, in which neighbors are encouraged to “say something, if these see something”. The NSA police state surveillance programs speak for themselves. It is highly recommended that every American see the Oliver Stone movie, Snowden. 14-The total control or elimination of religion. The Bible is already being characterized as hate speech. Today, one who is Christian is cast as anti-gay/transgender, anti-government, etc. 15-Control of the media. Except for the total eradication of the alternative media, this has already happened. ICANN will finish the job. 16-Executions without due process of law (NDAA). 17-Total suspension of the Constitution as this is essentially complete in light of actions such as EO 13603 and the NDAA.
I did not even mention the multiple of sexual assault allegation made against UN troops in other venues.
Can there be any question about why the Oroville Dam is destined to fail?
The California Department of Water Resources is maintaining that the Oroville Dam spillway is fine. This is a lie! They are working 24/7 on the dam. Hundreds are witnessing the deception. The Prado Dam, also in crisis is being managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. Why is the Oroville Dam under the control of the Federal government? Is Oroville SUPPOSED to fail and it is easier to pull of the deception if the very corrupt California state government remains in charge?
Paul Preston has previously related to me that the California State Government has a financial motivation to see the dam fail based on the following:
The State of California is broke and the state is quickly reaching a state of insolvency. If the Oroville Dam fails, the state will instantly quality for over a billion dollars in federal disaster aid. The state has motive to see the dam fail.
There are are a number of scenarios with regard to inundation when the dam fails. Use your search engine to locate.The devastation is massive. I will be focusing on this variable in the next installment of this analysis.
The following video describes how the surrounding lakes are filled to capacity and the excess water has nowhere to do. This analysis is followed by the latest data which clearly shows the inflow rate is triple that of the outflow rate of water. The dam is six feet of water away from overtopping and collapsing. These numbers are worsening exponentially. Only 24 hours earlier, the rate of inflow vs outflow showed a 40% differential. This morning, less that two hours ago, the differential is now increased to a factor of three. Crisis is at hand.
The Data Does Not Lie
Below is the latest data as released by the California Department of Water Resources. Please note that as of 7AM Pacific, this morning (5/28), the inflow of water into the dam has tripled outflow. I am receiving information that the previously reported opening of the gates is not working as well as it did. Remember, I stated that this was a temporary, stop-gap measure that has run its course. Inflow is triple the rate of outflow. Also, please note that the dam is 900 feet and the present height of the water in the dam is 894. Last week, the dam was 12 feet from overtopping. And when this earthen dam overtops, it will break.
Please note the rate of inflow vs outflow is greatly increasing with regard to the same time only 24 hours earlier. This is because the mitigation strategy of using opening the gates is no longer effective. In addition, there is rain forecast and the peak of the snow run-off has not been reached.
Oroville (900 Feet) Hourly Data
DATE / TIME
In a future article, I will discuss, in detail, a likely scenario, that will follow the breaking of the dam that will involve the military, first responders and the United Nations. This is a frightening scenario. One brief look ahead, would indicate that Federal personnel stationed on the border will be moved to assist with the crisis management in the Central Valley of California following the catastrophic failure of the dam. This will increase the dangers resulting from the further breakdown of the border and the increased likelihood of a Red Dawn military action on our Southern border. Also, I would say at this point, get use to seeing blue helmets all across the Southwest.
Please show this data to a skeptic who lives in the Central Valley region of California. Many are voluntarily evacuating. All people in the path of the flood need to immediately evacuate
With Chinese pigs getting slaughtering left and right to contain the breakout of African swine fever, also known as “Pig Ebola”, so are pork shorts as meat processors around the world scramble to sell more pork to China to make up for sharp shortages of China’s most popular protein. The consequence is tighter supplies in the U.S. and Europe, which is pushing up prices. And as the disease continues to spread throughout China – the world’s largest producer and consumer – the trend will only get worse.

Case in point: US retail prices for boneless hams hit $4.31 per pound in March, the highest since 2015.
But none of this compares to what is about to hit China, where consumers are bracing for a shock as pork prices may surge more than 70% in the second half of this year an agriculture ministry official said last month, as the country’s pork output has plunged as much as 30% this year, according to Rabobank, and could spike Chinese CPI in the coming months, sharply limiting the PBOC’s efforts to stimulate and boost liquidity in the world’s (credit-driven) growth dynamo and curbing China’s latest attempt to reflate the world and boost global economic growth.
“Some meat that used to go to the U.S. is now going to China because it pays more,” Jens Munk Ebbesen, director of food safety and veterinary issues at the Danish Agriculture & Food Council recently told Bloomberg.
Seeking to frontrun some of the price surge, China recently made its biggest-ever weekly purchase of US pork:
“African swine fever has sparked a rally across global protein stocks, but it’s not too late to buy in,” Morgan Stanley analysts led by Rafael Shin said in an April report to clients this week. “We think the rally has only begun and that the long-term impacts of ASF are still not understood.”
Morgan Stanley may be on to something because as Bloomberg reported last week, Thailand, one of Asia’s top pork producers, is intensifying efforts to hold off the spread of the lethal pig virus that’s causing havoc as it spreads across the region.
No longer contained just to China, “Pig Ebola” – which as its name suggest kills nearly all the pigs it infects -has crossed the Chinese border, and has been spreading through Asia from Mongolia to Vietnam and Cambodia. Millions of pigs have been culled, creating a global protein shortage and saddling farmers and food businesses with billions of dollars in costs.
The focus is now on Thailand, where Anan Suwannarat, the permanent secretary in Thailand’s Agriculture Ministry, told Bloomberg that “we’re on red alert for the pig virus” adding that “we’re trying everything to prevent it from spreading to Thailand.”
As a result, Thailand has tightened inspections at airports and border checkpoints, cracked down on illegal slaughterhouses and traders, and imposed stricter requirements for reporting hog deaths. The authorities have detected contaminated pork products at airports and borders, but have not yet found any cases at farms.
As Thailand is aggressively seeking to halt the spread of ASF, so is Vietnam, Southeast Asia’s biggest pork producer, which discovered its first case in February. Cambodia – sandwiched between Vietnam and Thailand – reported its first infection less than two months later.
“Preventing the outbreak is our national agenda,” said Cheerasak Pipatpongsopon, the deputy director-general at Thailand’s Livestock Department. “Even if it gets into the country, we’ll be quick in containing the outbreak to minimize the damage to the industry.”
Unfortunately, it now appears that Pig Ebola has indeed spread and overnight Bloomberg reported that Vietnam has culled more than 1.7 million pigs as African swine fever spread across the country.
But back to Thailand where the Agriculture Ministry has estimated an outbreak may cost the Thai economy more than $1 billion if over 50% of the country’s hogs are infected. That could reach nearly $2 billion if 80% are infected. The Thai government last month approved a $4.7 million budget to prepare the nation for a potential outbreak.
Public health banners raising the alert over African swine fever are seen in Chiang Rai, on the Thai side of the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet.
“No country is safe,” said Dirk Pfeiffer, a professor at the Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health at the City University of Hong Kong. “There’s a high risk of introduction of the virus for Thailand, as is the case for every country in the region and beyond.”

While not nearly as productive as pig powerhouse Vietnam, Thailand produces over 2 million hogs each year, and exports about 40% to Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. It doesn’t import live hogs or pork meat and visitors are no longer permitted to bring processed pork products into the country. In a crackdown to prevent infected pigs from entering the country, it has confiscated pork products at its airports and borders 550 times since August, detecting the virus 43 times, according to the Livestock Department.
Making matters worse, porous borders increase the risk of the disease entering the country. The virus can survive in uncooked meat for a long period of time, and hogs can get infected if contaminated food gets into their feed.
But of all Asian nations, it is China that faces the greatest risk by far. China slaughters almost 700 million pigs a year and pork is by far the most widely eaten meat. The problem is that as China scrambles to contain the raging virus, it is forced to cull herds across the country. As Reuters reported last week, citing the latest Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs data, China’s sow herd in April fell a whopping 22.3% compared with the same month a year earlier.
The good news for now is that while pork prices have spiked, resulting in a 14.4% pork CPI in April…
… prices are also being kept in check as frozen pork stocks are being sold – call it the Strategic Porkolium Reserve – since slaughterhouses have slowed down business in order to comply with new rules to test for the deadly virus.
But as noted above, the industry is expecting prices to soar in the second half – perhaps more than 60%, surpassing the great food inflation scare of 2011, with production still falling. “With the disease still present, it will keep falling,” Qin Yinglin, president of Muyuan Foods , China’s second-largest pig farmer, told Reuters. He is right, because while the official May inflation data has to be reported, pork prices in China – along with fruits and vegetables – have surged even more so far in May, putting more pressure on households’ wallets and increasing inflationary pressures.
In fact, as shown below, the price of virtually every food product in China is rising at double digits in China.
Making matters even worse, while Chinese Vice premier Hu Chunhua has been encouraging pig farmers to restock farms “as worries grow over the impact of rising pork prices on the economy and social stability”, farmers are nervous about repopulating farms that have had outbreaks because of the risk of new pigs catching the fatal disease if the farm has not been properly decontaminated.
But in what is perhaps the biggest headache, this being China none of the data can be trusted. Indeed, as Reuters notes, while there have been 126 reported outbreaks of African swine fever on domestic pig farms, Beijing has not confirmed the disease on many large producers even as industry insiders say many large-scale farms have experienced numerous outbreaks.
Putting all this together, and one can see why Trump felt empowered to resume the trade war at the start of May: after all, between the collapse in trade and soaring food, and especially pork prices, China is suddenly facing a stark risk of stagflation which, as Bloomberg’s Benjamin Dow notes, could be yet another force to weaken the yuan beyond 7 per USD (and may explain the PBOC’s panic at preventing FX shorts from piling on).
As Dow notes, “higher pork prices combining with a trade slowdown would bring stagflation pressures to bear on CNY.” He concludes that the ongoing price surge “may also obliquely weaponize the currency anyway, despite any deliberate attempts by Chinese authorities to avoid such a scenario.”
Such a stagflationary scenario could have dire consequences for Chinese monetary policy and the global economy, as the projected 60% spike in pork prices would sharply limit the PBOC’s efforts to stimulate and boost liquidity in the world’s (credit-driven) growth dynamo and further curb China’s latest attempt to reflate the world and boost global economic growth (especially now that Beijing has to tread very carefully following the first failure of a Chinese commercial bank in three decades, sparking the risk of a bank run).
Yet all of this is a welcome development for Trump, because while the raging “Pig Ebola” and surging pork prices are terrible news for pork consumers, Beijing politicians and the Chinese central bank, it’s some long overdue good news for embattled US farmers, who will be able to sell their hogs for higher prices as a result of the soaring demand. And while producers may start to breed more livestock, the process takes time. “It will be a good moment for producers,” said Didier Delzescaux, the director of French pork council Inaporc.
Finally, it’s not just China that’s grappling with the spread of disease: as noted above, with Asian nations still struggling to contain the surge, pork prices may soar even more as fears spread in Europe that the virus, which was detected in wild boars in Belgium last year, could infect domestic hogs in major exporters, such as France and Germany. France is in the process of building a fence running dozens of kilometers near the border in an effort to contain the disease, unfortunately in a stark comparison to similar “fortifications” undertaken during World War II, this venture will fail spectacularly.
With all that in mind, two parting thoughts: should a worst case scenario unfold and pig production crashes, will pork end up being the best investment of 2019; second – with China clearly at a disadvantage should the disease continue to spread, potentially resulting in social instability if prices rise too high, one wonders if one or more Chinese geopolitical rivals may have something to do with this relentless spread of Pig Ebola. Because what better way to bring a nation, where pork is the primary source of protein for its 1.42 billion population, to heel than to “make sure” that pork production in said nation is crippled for the foreseeable future, resulting in further economic pain, stagflation, and ultimately, a white flag of surrender in the ongoing US-China trade war…

Australia imports wheat for first time in over a decade after worst drought in 116 years
Australia is normally the biggest wheat exporter in the Southern Hemisphere, but the prolonged drought has fried its grain crop in recent years. In 2018, output tumbled 20% to just over 17 million tonnes, the lowest in more than a decade, according to the US Department of Agriculture. On May 9, 2019 the Australian government had no choice but to import 60,000 tons of wheat from Canada.
“Due to the worst drought in 116 years, high-protein wheat is in short supply which is critical to the Shoalhaven Starches wheat-processing plant,” a spokesman for the plant said.
“The reason this announcement has garnered so much attention is that it just doesn’t happen,” said James Maxwell, an analyst for Australian Crop Forecaster.
The cargo is expected to arrive in the next 6 to 8 weeks and will be processed at Manildra Group’s Shoalhaven Starches plant in NSW.
The last such shipment was back in 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23). – ABC.net.au
Floods, hail and bad weather affect fruits and vegetables in Italy
According to some sources, it is estimated that over 70% of Basilicata stone fruit has been lost. Alarming percentages, considering that the agricultural sector is the cornerstone for the economy of this region.
“Whole stone fruit fields have been destroyed. The watermelon seedlings planted a few weeks ago have been broken by hail,” says Francesco Musillo, director of Agorà PO, who adds: “Even on the covered vineyards, the hail weighed down the covers, breaking the structures.” – Fresh Plaza
Planting in France slowed down by extreme cold temperatures
Corn sowing in France slowed again this week, losing its lead to last year, after persistent cold weather continues to hamper the central European nation’s planting efforts.
France is the third largest corn exporter in the world, meaning a delayed or poor harvest will have a pronounced impact on global markets. – ElectroVerse
Severe drought devastates crops in Yucatan, Mexico
The drought in the Mexican state of Yucatan has put the agrarian sector up against the ropes. More than three thousand producers have been unable to save their crops due to the lack of irrigation infrastructure.
According to the president of the Association of Horticulturalists of Yucatan, Jose Filomeno Tejero Poot, if the drought lasts longer, a large part of the state’s harvest will be lost and they will have to bring food from other parts of the country to supply the demand of the population of Yucatan. – Fresh Plaza
Lowest rainfall in 100 years leaves millions at risk of starvation in North Korea
North Korea’s worst drought in decades is being driven by the lowest rainfall in a century, according to the country’s official state newspaper.
North Korea received just 56.3 millimeters (2.21 inches) of rain or snow from January to May 15, the lowest amount since 1917.
Water is running out in the country’s lakes and reservoirs, and explained the lack of rainfall “is causing a significant effect on the cultivation of wheat, barley, corn, potatoes and beans. – Newsweek
Spring’s record-late arrival in parts of the U.S. has catastrophic consequences for food industry – Food prices set to rise!
The calendar might have said it was spring more than a month ago, but the physical signs of it around us told a much different story. According to officials data, this was the latest arrival of spring in 38 years of records for parts of Kansas and Oklahoma. Portions of Washington and Oregon also saw the latest spring start on record.
In parts of the Plains, in places like South Dakota, Nebraska and even into Oklahoma, a late spring like this year’s only happens once every 10 or more years. Many farming fields are ruined and will not be planted this year. Otherwise, planting has been dramatically delayed. – Strange Sounds

Floods leave 600 000 ha (1.5 million acres) of crops damaged in Argentina
In a recently released report, the National Institute of Agricultural Technology estimated there are 600 000 ha (1 480 000 acres) of crops affected by heavy rain and flooded roads, which interrupted the harvest of soy, corn and alfalfa crops.
In some areas, crops were under 40 cm (15.7 inches) of water, so owners decided to abandon them. – Telam

Over two years after repairs to the main spillway of the Oroville Dam after a near catastrophic failure of the dams emergency runoff chutes the dam was put to the test for media and the world to see. They barely ran the spillway at full operation (understandable), but then they stopped using it and have started working on the inside of what appears to be a – still leaky – spillway.
In this video I use the reporting (fair use) of KPIX CBS Bay Area on the April 2nd re-opening of the dam and then I use the same news cast reporting of ‘rumors’ that the dam is not up to standards to hold massive water runoff if needed. In this video I report and reply to Viewers Comments on both news stories and find out that REAL people are REALLY concerned about the health and well being of the Oroville Dam. No fearporn here Juan. Just real reporting with real public concerns. Open the Video
California faces a triple whammy in which millions of California residents are at risk for three major dam failures. Most readers are aware that the Oroville Dam is in crisis. The latter part of this report will provide a very grim update of the condition of the Oroville and the desperate measures being employed to delay the catastrophic failure of the dam. However, a second dam, the Prado Dam, which now threatens over one million resident of Orange County is in crisis.
CSS colleague, Alexandra Daley, sent a summation of a newspaper account, written by Ashley Ludwig, Patch Staff which was written on May 17, 2019 at 1PM Pacific time.
The Prado Dam is now at a high urgency risk characterization, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Federal engineers are stating that there is a good chance for a “significant flood event. and they upgraded the dam’s risk category from moderate to high urgency.”
According to Federal officials, strong Pacific storms, could produce conditions that could breach the spillway of the Orange County dam. A catastrophic failure has the potential to “drown out dozens of downstream communities, from Anaheim’s Disneyland to Newport Beach” according to the Army Corps of Engineers from the Los Angeles District.
Over 1.4 million people live and work below Prado Dam, with property valued at over $61 billion, including Disneyland and many high-end resorts and properties in Newport Beach.
The Dam has been near failure in the past. In 2005, a leak in the dam led to the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people in Corona.
Army Corps of Engineer spokesperson, Lillian Doherty told the LA Times that the spillway was a concern, but that repairs on the spillway won’t begin for at least two years. The obvious question jumps off the page: What if a hundred year storm should strike the area before repairs are completed? This damaged spillway is a clear and present danger to 1.4 million residents. However, farther north, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) won’t even admit the Oroville Dam spillway cannot be used
Ominous Update On the Oroville Dam
Spillway? Did someone say spillway? At least in Orange County, the federal government has a presence. The people of Orange County should feel good about this. For months, Paul Preston and myself have saying the spillway is damaged and cannot be used to handle the spring run-offs and heavy rains. The people that have mocked our warnings owe us both an apology. In a last ditch effort to save the dam, the DWR is attempting to divert water through the power plant by utilizing something called penstocks. This will allow the Oroville Dam to generate 13,000 cubic feet per second of water with regard to the outflow of water expelled by the dam. Presently the dam cannot generate more than 10,000 cubic feet per second. This process is now needed because the spillway is damaged beyond repair. This is what Paul Preston and myself have been saying, and showing with photos published on our respective websites, and we are now seeing the proof which is employing this desperate and last ditch attempt to delay the inevitable. From the inflow/outflow numbers at the dam, we figure they have an additional three days. The day of reckoning for Oroville Dam is almost here .
The Oroville Dam is less than 10 feet from overtopping. What happens when an earthen dam like the Prado or Oroville Dam has its water overtop the dam? Here is what Army Corps of Engineers Division Chief, Lillian Doherty says about this issue.
"Our concern right now is about the concrete slab of the spillway and how well it will perform if water were to spill over the top of the dam, We will determine whether or not it is as reliable as it should be."
At least the residents near the Prado Dam are being considered. Doherty stated that they are working to develop outreach strategies to alert the estimated 1.4 million people who could be impacted. The people, downstream from the Oroville Dam are being lied to by the DWS. They are being told there is no danger despite the fact that it is obvious for any to see that has eyes to see.
Doherty said her agency is working with a national team of experts to develop interim and permanent risk-reduction measures at the Prado Dam, as well as public outreach strategies to alert the estimated 1.4 million people who live and work in 29 communities downstream.
One may remember that in February 2017, Butte County officials evacuated 180,000 people from the Oroville Dam area because a concrete spillway was deemed to be ineffective. As the situation at the Oroville Dam disintegrated during heavy rains, an evacuation of more than 180,000 people commenced. Had the dam collapsed, all would have been caught in the resulting flood waters and would have all perished in their cars.
The head of the California Water Resources Department was removed after an independent probe found the failure was the result of a lax safety culture. Nothing has changed.
That same year, the Corps of Engineers discovered that the 60-year-old Whittier Narrows Dam, about 40 miles to the west of Prado Dam, was structurally unsafe and posed a potentially catastrophic risk to more than 1 million people in working-class communities along the San Gabriel River floodplain.
Engineers also found that the earthen structure could fail if water were to flow over its crest.
With less than 10 feet from overtopping, why isn’t the Oroville Dam attracting the attention of the Army Corps of Engineers? Why is the inept DWR still in charge? The Whittier Narrows is of concern because the Army Corps of Engineers used the phrase “catastrophic risk to more than 1 million people..”. This is exactly what we are looking at with regard to the Oroville Dam and nobody is saying anything. If the Oroville Dam suffers a catastrophic failure the following will happen with regard to the impact on human survival:
A 30 foot wall of water will escape the failed Oroville Dam The water will be traveling at 75 mph It would take a minimum of 72 hours to evacuate Sacramento and Stockton A 20 foot wall of water would reach Sacramento within 45 minutes Over 1 million people lie in the path of the water As with all these soon-to-be-failed dams, the spillways constitute the major reason for potential failure and we are not clearly seeing this condition at the Oroville Dam

Please note the enormous craines. This photo was taken on May 16, 2019. They are not holding back the water, they are checking for catastrophic failure potential. Not a word to the public, but the DWR is very worried!
The Latest Outflow and Inflow Reports From the Oroville Dam
Earlier in this publication I alluded to a new mitigation strategy being employed by the DWR as they are rerouting some of the water through the power plant. They are using the penstocks to accomplish this goal. The penstocks can mitigate flood waters to a certain degree and for only a certain time. The use of the penstocks stresses the dam in other areas and is only meant to mitigate a severe crisis. By using the penstocks, the DWR is admitting that the spillway is not usable. Again, the outflow that can be generated is about 13,000 cubic feet per second. The water approaching the dam over the next several days is peaking at 17,500 inflow. Eventually the dam is going to overtop and the dam will likely fail.
Below is a chart which shows the use of the penstocks is barely meeting the need. However, as it continues to rain and the snow begins to melt, catastrophe is likely.

According to Paul Preston, some people are evacuating. However, many more are unaware of the danger. Both the federal and state governments are acting irresponsibly. Given how quickly the Oroville dam could unravel, evacuations should have already been underway.
"A troubling theme is emerging as the Corps reviews its portfolio of large flood control systems that were built a long time ago and are now showing signs of severe stress," said Daniel Swain, a UCLA climate scientist told the LA Times. "Federal engineers are finding that these systems are not as resilient as they thought they were and that the frequency of what were regarded as once-in-a-lifetime storms is increasing significantly."
