(Cheap food, cheap energy and abundant jobs; Western sanctions turn the fortunes around for Russians - TFIGlobal)

Russia’s special operation in Ukraine has been a game changer for the Kremlin’s economy. Facts show that the west’s aim to disrupt the Russian economy and pull in the gains for themselves has backfired.

Europe and the US came up with a plethora of sanctions that were supposed to initiate a severe crackdown on the Russian finances but they seem to have forgotten that Moscow’s economy, in reality, is not a bubble and is backed by physical valuable resources like oil and natural gas.

UK To 'Burn 15 Billion Loaves Of Bread' A Year For Bioenergy


9/22/2022 2:51:35 PM

  • The Government's Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is currently consulting on the subsidies it needs to put in place to support Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) from 2027-2050
  • Growing enough energy crops to make this work would require around 1.3 million hectares of UK land every year that is needed for food production.
  • If that land were instead used to grow wheat, it could produce 15 billion loaves of bread or enough calories to feed 4 million people for a year.
  • Some have estimated the cost of such technology at £31 billion and the Government has not ruled out paying for these subsidies through new levies on energy bills.
  • BECCS power plants produce less electricity because the actual technology requires a great deal of energy. At Drax power station in Yorkshire, installing BECCS technology and burning wood could reduce electricity output by the amount needed for 41,000 homes, risking blackouts. As such, by Drax's own figures, BECCS would therefore reduce the amount of power produced at the plant by at least 28%.

LONDON - SEPTEMBER 22, 2022 - A new report from Cut Carbon Not Forests (CCNF) shows that the UK Government's plans for Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) – on which it is currently consulting – could undermine the country's food security. The Government's official climate change advisors believe BECCS will be needed to offset 35.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2050 from other parts of the economy - like aviation and industry.

Currently, most bioenergy uses imported wood from forests overseas. This has significant negative impacts on nature and the climate. But the Climate Change Committee and the Government have signalled that they may replace these imports with energy crops grown on UK farms. While existing biomass plants can only burn wood, new ones could be built to burn energy crops.


Growing enough energy crops to make this idea work would require around 1.3 million hectares of UK land every year that is needed for food production. If that land were instead used to grow wheat, it could make 15 billion loaves of bread, or enough calories to feed 4 million people for a year.

In addition to putting the UK's food production at risk, it would also threaten nature, worsen our climate, and undermine energy security. For these reasons, the CCNF coalition urges the Government not to support any Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage.

“While the Government and industry desperately want to rely on BECCS to meet net zero goals, it doesn't make sense from any angle,' said Elly Pepper, campaigner at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Cut Carbon Not Forests coalition. 'The fact that the Government's BECCS plan could mean the loss of huge swathes of land needed to grow food for UK families is unconscionable.'

'The one and only reason the UK government continues to pursue this ill-advised path is its cosy relationship with Drax – the UK's top polluter and largest bioenergy generator. Indeed, the Government's current plans for BECCS reads like Drax's wish list and would hand the company billions in subsidies, whether it successfully captures carbon or not. In the midst of a climate and biodiversity crisis and record food price inflation, the government must find real solutions to prevent global warming – not perpetuate the corporate capture that got us into this mess in the first place.”

“Promising energy companies more bill payers' or public money if they install BECCS makes no sense for the climate, for energy security, nor for food security,' said Almuth Ernsting from Biofuelwatch.“This proposal is first and foremost about handing Drax more money to continue burning millions of tonnes of imported wood pellets even less efficiently than they are doing now, with devastating impacts on forests and the wildlife and communities that depend on them, as well as on the climate. Potentially, the BEIS proposal could also cause energy companies to burn crops at the expense of UK food security and UK biodiversity.'

“We need urgent actions to address the climate emergency in tandem with fuel poverty and the worsening cost of living crisis. These must include large-scale support for home insulation and other energy efficiency and conservation measures as well as for low-carbon renewable energy and heat pumps - not handing ever more funds to companies for burning wood as well as fossil fuels.”

An early Monday fire caused “substantial” damage to a portion of the Cargill poultry-processing plant in east London, fire officials say.

Firefighters descended on the plant on Cuddy Boulevard about 4:30 a.m. after a number of employees reported heavy smoke in the building, said Kirk Loveland, platoon chief with the London Fire Department.


Missouri & Florida Hit By MASSIVE Warehouse Fires! Food Shortages & Supply Chain Crisis Update! - Patrick Humphrey Preparedness

Missouri Florida Hit by MASSIVE Warehouse Fires Food Shortages Supply...

50 thousand tons of food was destroyed.

Ukraine grew produce to feed 400 million people around the world.

By Hannah Brown with AFP & EBU • Updated: 30/03/2022

One of Europe’s largest food storage facilities has been destroyed in Ukraine.

Brovary, 20 kilometres northeast of the country's capital Kyiv, is home to multiple warehouses and has been targeted by Russian shelling. The Mayor of the city, Iho Saposhko, is convinced this attack was planned even before the war started.

“It wasn’t an accident. It was intentional. The entire food warehouse and 50,000 tonnes of food were destroyed,” says Saposhko.

"All food stores in Brovary were bombed on the same day. They deliberately destroyed food stocks destined for the whole of Ukraine.”

In the first days of the war, Russian forces managed to advance from Belarus to Brovary but Ukrainian troops halted their progress, helping to save Kyiv.

One suggestion for staving off a food crisis, advanced by Irwin on Twitter last week, would be to release land temporarily from the US Conservation Reserve Program, a complex system of set-asides in which farmers are paid to remove acreage from production for 10 years at a time, and instead plant grasses or trees to create wildlife habitat, prevent erosion, and protect water quality. There are about 22 million acres in the program right now—not all in one place, but scattered across the country.

“Farmers are producers,” Irwin says. “If they’re given the access, they’ll plant.”

Russia’s grain harvest hits all-time high

Russia’s grain harvest this year has already set a new record, the country’s Agriculture Ministry said on Wednesday on its official Telegram channel.

To date, 147.5 million tons in bunker weight have been harvested, with harvesting still ongoing,” the ministry announced.

Russian Agriculture Minister Dmitry Patrushev later confirmed the figure at a staff meeting of the ministry.

We expect to reap a maximum of 150 million tons. Of course, this is an absolute success for our farmers and the Russian agriculture industry as a whole,” he stated.

The previous record had been set in 2017, when the country reaped 135.5 million tons of grain, including 86 million tons of wheat.

This year, the wheat harvest is expected to reach 100 million tons.

Patrushev recently said that Russia’s newly joined territories, the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, and Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions, would add about 5 million tons of grain per year to Russia’s overall crop.
Russia is the largest wheat exporter in the world, followed by Canada and the US. The country has already delivered about 8.3 million tons of grain to foreign markets in the 2022 agricultural year, which began on June 1. It expects to export around 50 million tons in total by July 30, 2023.

Americans are skipping meals because they can't afford food

A new survey by the Nationwide Retirement Institute reveals that, "nearly a quarter of young people skipped meals or didn’t buy groceries because of high inflation."
Food inflation is worsening for a number of reasons that all lead back to flawed policies by the Biden administration:

  • Covid lockdowns of food farms and food processing facilities, leading to supply chain disruptions.
  • Continued money printing operations that devalue the purchasing power of the dollar.
  • Government policies that pay farmers to destroy crops or not plant them in the first place.
  • Biden's cancelling of natural gas pipelines, resulting in severe fertilizer shortages and price increases.
  • Sharp increases in diesel fuel prices due to Biden's anti-energy economic policies.

In addition, over 100 food facilities have been set on fire across America in the last 18 months in a pattern of attacks that appear to be deliberate sabotage. Someone is trying to burn down America's food infrastructure.

No Vaccine No Food? Grocery Industry Merging with Big Tech and Big Pharma as New App Tracks Drug and Vaccine Purchases Along with Food

Comments by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

Big Food is making its move into the “digital health space” as grocery chain giant Albertsons announced the roll-out of its “Sincerely Health” platform along with a new app where customers “can connect data from wearables, integrate prescriptions, design their diet and make telehealth or vaccination appointments.”

Albertsons, which includes other mega grocery chains such as Safeway, Vons, Shaw’s, Jewel-Osco, Acme and Tom Thumb, among others, is currently in talks to merger with Kroger, another mega grocery chain, which would give them 36% control over the grocery supermarket business in the United States.

Walmart, the largest grocery chain in the U.S., offers something similar, as they recently teamed up with Avanlee Care, which offers caregivers a similar platform integrated with Walmart shopping lists and pharmacy tools.

Your grocery purchasing habits have been considered very valuable data for decades now, with most major supermarkets offering things like “loyalty” cards that give discounts on grocery products.

But now, Big Food wants to merge that with your Big Pharma purchases as well, which would include prescription drug purchases as well as vaccines.

Fierce Healthcare reports:

Albertsons moved to enter the digital health space with its platform Sincerely Health, designed to direct consumers on their health and wellness journeys.

Sincerely Health was designed with input from providers, payers and tech experts along with insights from 10,000 customers and employees. Users can connect data from wearables, integrate prescriptions, design their diet and make telehealth or vaccination appointments. The platform announcement comes as Albertsons has garnered headlines over a consumer suit to block the proposed megamerger with Kroger.

“We are introducing Sincerely Health with a singular intention to improve lives,” Omer Gajial, chief digital officer and executive vice president for health at Albertsons, said in a press release. “As a grocery and pharmacy retailer committed to the health and wellness of our communities, we are empowering customers to have a connected and personalized view of their health across food, nutrition, activity, mental well-being and pharmacy services, enabling them to make more informed choices.”

Users first start by filling out a questionnaire based on what the platform refers to as “seven-dimensions of wellbeing”: activity, mental well-being, mindfulness, nutrition, physical health, self-control and sleep. Responses are assessed along with the user’s age, gender, lifestyle choices and mental health.

Users can then set goals such as engaging in meditation five times a week, sleeping at least seven hours a night and taking 10 thousand steps daily.

The platform connects users with the Albertsons pharmacy by managing prescriptions, scheduling vaccine appointments and making telehealth appointments through the grocer’s partnership with Providence Express Care. Users can opt in to receive reminders to take daily medications or refill prescriptions.

“Pixel” tracking technology, which has been the subject of several lawsuits regarding patient privacy of health system websites, is used to track users’ interests and provide relevant content. Users can opt out of the use of “pixels,” according to Albertsons. (Full article.)

Albertsons claims that the data they collect on its customers are “never sold to third parties,” pointing to the “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act” (HIPAA) that they claim protects customers’ medical records.

But we all know how that works now. All it takes is a declaration of a “public health emergency” and pretty much the entire Constitution of the U.S. is suspended all in the name of “public health.”

Your private health decisions are then broadcast to the public to be used against you, such as whether or not you choose to wear a facemask, or show your proof of vaccination, in order to enter their stores.

We have also seen just how easy it is for hackers to gain access to this “private” data.

It’s not difficult then to see just how Big Food can now potentially use this data against you.

These apps that combine your drug, vaccine, food, and doctor appointment purchases could easily be used in the future to prevent you from accessing these purchases if you do not comply with their requirements, such as being up-to-date on your vaccines.

Those who receive government aid, such as food stamps, Section 8 housing, Medicare/Medicaid, etc., could all be tied into the information you provide on these apps.

Don’t do it! It is not worth the rebates or food coupon discounts you receive if you have to surrender your personal data to receive such “benefits.”

The entire medical industry is being digitized and handed over to Big Tech now, as online shopping giant is getting into the “healthcare” field in a big way also, by purchasing One Medical for $3.9 billion, something the FTC is looking at right now.

One Medical is an online membership-based primary care provider with 188 medical clinics in 29 markets and 815,000 members. already owns the Whole Foods Market grocery giant, and is in the process of digitizing and tracking everything you do, not only online, but in their brick and mortar grocery stores as well, where eventually you won’t be able to buy any groceries without their app which links you, along with all of your data, to your account.

I reported about this last December. See:

Amazon’s Whole Foods Moves Closer to the Satanic Merchant Model of Marking and Tracking Every Customer

DO NOT participate in these digital programs by using their apps which will track almost everything you do, giving them control over you.

I have not purchased anything on for many years now, and I have not walked into a Whole Foods store since 2020 during the COVID scam, where they not only required a face diaper to shop in their stores, but also stopped accepting cash for payment.

There will be options to opt out of these digital prisons, but only if consumers stop using all this technology and stop shopping at places that require you to use it!

The grocery industry is a very cut-throat industry with low margins overall, and retailers are 100% dependent on their customers.

So if enough people resist the Big Tech takeover and spend their retail shopping dollars elsewhere, more businesses will arise catering to the consumers who resist the technology.

This is the danger that Big Tech presents to society today, their desire to control “the data” on every aspect of your life, so that they can control you.

Their danger is NOT AI and all the false techno-prophecies that AI is going to replace humans some day.

I’ve been saying this for years now, but I am not the only one saying this anymore, as more and more people wake up to the false techno-prophecies of the technocrats.

Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple alongside Steve Jobs, recently expressed some of the same things about the false techno-prophecies regarding AI on CNBC.

“I was convinced by a certain date we’d have computers that had emotions," says Apple Co-Founder @stevewoz. “But I decided to change my mind. AI is only going to do things that help humans…Humans will always be in control.”

— Squawk Box (@SquawkCNBC) February 9, 2023

“Elon Musk and Steve Jobs are very similar, and I don’t like to say that,” says Apple Co-Founder @stevewoz. “They both want to be seen as the important person and be like a cult leader. But a lot of honesty disappears when you look at @elonmusk and $TSLA.”

If you want to thwart the efforts of the technocrats to control every aspect of our lives, just stop using their products and services, and keep your personal data PRIVATE!

Grocery rationing begins in UK as a means of ‘normalizing’ coming shortages ahead of collapse

Friday, March 03, 2023 by: JD Heyes

(Natural News) The demise of the West, planned by our globalist leaders as a means of further empowering themselves as kings and queens, is continuing apace amid a new war in Europe and now, rationing of vegetables in the United Kingdom.

“The past few days have seen certain fruits and vegetables ‘rationed’ by major UK supermarkets,” writes Kit Knightly at Off Guardian this week, going on to list several grocery store chains where the rationing was occurring.

“Many – including Justin King, former Sainsbury’s CEO – have jumped at the chance to lay the blame at Brexit’s feet. But that doesn’t make much sense, since Morocco – whence the UK imports a lot of salad vegetables – obviously isn’t in the EU. Further, Ireland has been affected too, plus we’re only 5 months removed from France (and other EU nations) facing their own ‘catastrophic food shortages,'” Knightley continued.

The author suggests that while one side of the Brexit divide blames the shortages on the weather, the real reason for the shortages is that they have been engineered. Knightly then implies that the “establishment narrative” about climate change is being used to distract from the true cause of the shortages. Knightly also mentions the “toilet paper fiasco” at the beginning of the pandemic as an example of a possible psy-op, or psychological operation, that created the appearance of a shortage.

How to create a tomato shortage…

  1. Tell people there’s a tomato shortage.
  2. People panic buy tomatoes.
  3. There’s a tomato shortage.
    Don’t be part of it folks.

— Dr Zoe Harcombe, PhD (@zoeharcombe) February 27, 2023

The deliberate inflation of oil and gas prices has caused a surge in the cost of producing, harvesting, and transporting crops. Additionally, the price of fertilizer has also increased due to a manufactured shortage. Although these issues are being attributed to the war in Ukraine, they existed before the conflict (as previously covered here and here). This was extensively discussed when reports of “food shortages” first emerged in the spring, Knightly continued.

“Speaking of Ukraine, it’s currently easier to get tomatoes in war-torn Kherson than in London. That’s the reality we’re being presented with,” the columnist wrote.

No tomato shortage here – but I’m in Kherson, a frontline Ukrainian city that gets shelled by the Russians daily, not a British supermarket.

— Lindsey Hilsum (@lindseyhilsum) February 23, 2023

In short, Knightly suggested, the current rationing of certain products in UK supermarkets is part of a confusing and inconsistent narrative. While Brexit and weather have been cited as reasons for the shortages, these explanations don’t entirely make sense. Additionally, the rationing appears to be affecting some stores and places but not others.

According to a farmer, supermarkets could fill the gap in imports by purchasing domestically grown produce, but they are reportedly unwilling to pay for the added costs. The normalization of empty shelves and rationing suggests that there may be an underlying purpose to the food shortage narrative.

Social commentator Neil Oliver summarized what is going on in a recent monologue for his GBNews program:

They’re rationing tomatoes in the supermarkets. We’re told it’s about supply chains, bad weather and the price of heating, but right now, in terms of the messaging, I suspect it’s more about pushing the word – rationing. Less about any believable shortage of food and more about getting us used to hearing the word. No doubt, if experience is anything to go by, the rest will come later. My money says the rationing app for our smartphones is already sitting on a hard drive somewhere, ready when we are.

For now, it’s more of a familiar process of psychological manipulation. Get us acquainted with the general idea of food scarcity so that we’re well-primed when the planned reality is unrolled. We were given the same treatment with words like “lockdown” and “pandemic”, “mandate” and “denier”. Nudge, nudge. Rationing is a word from our parents’ and grandparents’ generation, a bit like “War in Europe” and “Fascist” and now they’re back in fashion once more. Rationing, I ask you, while the landfills swell with fresh food dumped every day.

The globalists running Western civilization hate Western civilization, and they are engineering its collapse because you can’t control free people.
