Farms and Food Being Federalized
Farms and food are being federalized by regulatory agencies. This is yet another assault on our freedoms. Maybe you were unaware, or maybe you were not even born yet, but some 60+ years ago a war was declared against ‘threats to [global] peace’, breaches of peace and acts of aggression which includes American agriculture and food. Maybe you have not considered your dinner plate or your domesticated farm animals an ‘Act of Aggression’ but that is precisely how the UN views them. We need to look at the particular UN Articles you need to understand America is a participating member and signatory of the UN. The goal of the UN is to unite the world to a Utopian time of ‘peace’ under UN control and by their definitions. A task force was set up in the early 1960′s to evaluate the best way to make transition to world peace. Peace equates equals control. Because there is human suffering and poverty the UN believes it is it’s task to bring about a ‘peaceful order’.
Here are the facts, nothing but the facts.
- Only 2% of Americans grow food.
- There are more prisoners in America than farmers.
- Many farms are now foreign owned thanks to the overly intrusive regulations that each state and the federal government has passed and our lackadaisical protection of our borders.
- America used to have hobby farmers who grew food and companion animals for their own family but those farms are rapidly becoming extinct with high prices and restrictions.
- The global import/export market is growing at a quantum 6% a year. It will not take long before complete dependence upon foreign products to take place.
- The bioterrorism act of 20002 requires that all producers of food, retailers, and restaurants maintain records for traceability.
Many local farmers have been sounding the alarm that a famine is headed thanks to international treaties and contaminated foods. Upon the revelation that the food supply was in grave danger small farmers got involved in legislative and the regulatory process. They took time away from their families and took to the airwaves to educate folks on what was coming. You say you didn’t see it on the front page of your local newspaper or on the 5 o’clock news? For quite some time there has not only been dirty food, but also dirty politics. Farmers successfully got many organizations and people on board. Testimony and hearing rooms were filled to overfill capacity but farming issues were considered ‘contentious’ and Agricultural Committee Chairmen, Editors, and Producers shied away unless they ran a “farmer fringe” column, beside the black helicopters. The end result was that your local farmer, the folks who bring you nutritious, good, local foods were marginalized and rapidly became endangered. This past year the pace for completion of the UN dream has escalated, taking a dramatic turn for the worse. Contaminated food at an all time high despite an ever growing bureaucracy supposedly tasked with food safety and other facets of agricultural regulation.
The Constitution & Public Health
The 10th Amendment of the US Constitution reserves all powers for the states as the primary authority and protector of the public health. The Supreme Court has understood that the federal government has a role in: environmental protection, occupational health & safety, food and drug purity. The federal government contributes to public health in six ways:
- Setting health goals, policies and standards
- Protecting public health
- Collecting and disseminating information about US public health and health-care delivery systems
- Building infrastructure of public health
- Managing services
The federal government has had a limited direct role in public health deferring to state and local government until recently. Our Constitution equally divides public health responsibility.
- The Executive Branch establishes health regulations although not directly and ENFORCES public policy.
- The Legislative branch of the government at all levels enacts laws, develops policy, and allocates authorization and funding for policy.
- The Judicial branch is to interpret the laws and adjudicate disputes (Gostin, 2000).
In the words of Lord Ashton, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely’ (Powell, 2001). With the new health-care reform it is obvious that the checks and balances established by our Founding Fathers are out of whack.
State Department’s of Health are responsible to develop codes, determine what diseases are notifiable, sanitation standards for local commerce and health issues. Each state clearly enacts health laws and regulations.
Federalism is the term that defines the pattern of relationship between national, state, and local governments in America. The Constitution of the United States reserves certain powers for the federal government and delegates the remainder to the states. Although the Constitution is silent on local government, it has has created a situation in the United States in which:
- The federal government has the money
- The State government has the authority
- The local government has the problem
This problem is traced back to Thomas Jefferson and the Federalist Papers. What this means is that the money appropriated by the federal government will have to pass though several bureaucracies each with slightly different rules until the money gets to the local level. It is a given that the person writing the check has the control, whoever they may be.
The United States is a Republic, not a democracy, despite what you hear everywhere from the marbled halls to the news venues. We have a solid Constitution and Bill of Rights which are bestowed upon us from God and cannot be taken or altered at whim. We can all see that our form of government is under assault. Can the Constitution and Bill of Rights be cracked? The gauntlet was thrown down to professionals, to lawyers, to educators to find a way or means to shatter the United States of America. Two breaches were found that could accomplish this task: environmentalism and the historic loophole of emergency management, particularly as it applied to human and animal health. Both methods involved exploiting a series of created and natural events seizing the opportunity to turn a minuscule hole in the dike into a dam breaking experience. For years these events have incrementally reduced freedom, privacy and ownership in countries around the globe including the US. A gigantic breach to liberty appeared after the events of September 11, 2001. Today, in 2010, we are seeing the UN vision of total food control come into view. An agricultural conference was held in the middle of March 2010, the NIAA. The theme for this year was the rising tide of the One World, One Health Initiative that seeks to unite medical, veterinary, and food sectors into one. When it was first presented it was introduced as a think tank theory to a group of students. Unknowing to most it was in fact the UN vision coming together. One of the power points presented at this conference was an Private sector Business Continuity Plan for an Animal Health Emergency. These plans are typically known as Public-Private Partnerships. They create a commingled hybrid of government & business following the fascist model.
Devil in the Details
The United Charter was created in 1945 and signed in San Francisco. A subsequent UN Human Right Resolution containing 30 basic human rights were agreed upon by UN members. These UN rights, contrary to the American Constitution and Bill of Rights with many other founding documents, would bestowed by UN. This document was signed at the 183rd plenary meeting on 10 December 1948 to resolved to create a UN with muscle:
United Nations Charter, Chapter 7: Action with Respect to Threats to the Peace, Breaches of the Peace, and Acts of Aggression
Chapter 7 of the Charter of the United Nations
Anything that threatens peace, breach of peace, or an act of aggression
The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security.
Call Upon the Parties to Comply
In order to prevent an aggravation of the situation, the Security Council may, before making the recommendations or deciding upon the measures provided for in Article 39, call upon the parties concerned to comply with such provisional measures as it deems necessary or desirable. Such provisional measures shall be without prejudice to the rights, claims, or position of the parties concerned. The Security Council shall duly take account of failure to comply with such provisional measures.
Baby Teeth of Decisions
The Security Council may decide what measures not involving the use of armed force are to be employed to give effect to its decisions, and it may call upon the Members of the United Nations to apply such measures. These may include complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations.
Demonstration of the Rule of Force by Blockade, Air, Sea or Land
It will unite world government, economy and religion creating a New World Order
This Declaration is one of : Interdependence
Should the Security Council consider that measures provided for in Article 41 would be inadequate or have proved to be inadequate, it may take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security. Such action may include demonstrations, blockade, and other operations by air, sea, or land forces of Members of the United Nations.
UN Armed Forces and Rights of Passage
1. All Members of the United Nations, in order to contribute to the maintenance of international peace and security, undertake to make available to the Security Council, on its call and in accordance with a special agreement or agreements, armed forces, assistance, and facilities, including rights of passage, necessary for the purpose of maintaining international peace and security.
2. Such agreement or agreements shall govern the numbers and types of forces, their degree of readiness and general location, and the nature of the facilities and assistance to be provided.
When you have a global government you must have a global police force that is omnipresent and virtually omnipotent to maintain freedom from war, living Disarmed in a Peaceful World. This police force will cause kill people and cause much suffering.
World Health Organization, OIE , FAO & Member States
Global organizations, entities and member States began biosurveillance some time ago though the word has not been defined by the Oxford English Dictionary. Leaving the word undefined technical experts must understand the term intuitively and calls for a broader synthesization of multidisciplinary professions. As biosurveillance went global member state budgets escalated. In 2005 the budget for the CDC was $8 billion and the median state health budget was $2.9 billionÂ The total civilian biodefense funding in 2005 was estimated to be $7.6 billion with $452 million allocated for agricultural labs, monitoring and the like.
The World Health Organization (WHO) stated it’s objective in 1969: “The attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health, defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. (WHO, 2005b)
International Health Regulations are two tools, IHR established in 1969 solely for the purpose of controlling yellow fever, cholera, and the plague, but was difficult to enforce. IHR that was amended in 2005 expanding its power to “prevent, protect against, control, and provide provide an international health response” that takes into effect risk, economics, traffic, trade and tourism IHR 2005 became effective in 2007. These regulations harmonized with the OIE, FAO, and Codex. They see their role (as opposed to member states):
- Daily surveillance and international intelligence
- Determining an international health emergency such as what we saw with the 2009 H1N1.
- Provide technical public health assistance.
- Guidance documents
- Contain and control (Command & control)
- Risk verification & assessment
- Respond to state needs regarding interpretation and implementation of their regulations.
The biosureveillance system is like a military commander who cannot see the threats he faces. The commander relies on ‘surveillance systems’ that include reports, reconnaissance, and sensing systems to make tactical decisions. Both military commanders and biosurveillance organizations are high-stake decision makers. They both work under pressure, with incomplete and uncertain information. Like a military commander a biosurveillance entity is primarily action oriented and conducts biosurveillance as a means, not an end. Biosurveillance is a means to the end of protecting health quite in alignment with the UN.
Just a Table Top Exercise?
Emphasizing Business Continuity in an Animal Health Emergency
Speaker: Bruce Spence, National Pork Board, PPT given to the NIAA 2010
Government began a new and different mode of operations after the attacks on September 11, 2001. Government and the private sector merges with the surge of “Volunteerism”. Reminiscent of Russia’s underground police, one would not know if the person one was standing next to was working for the government or an ordinary person who had taken the “incentive”. After 911 the name of the game was “blend in”.
Who’s are the Fed’s?
You may have heard of the federal government’s Continuity of Government (GOG) plan. A plan that ensures government continues in case a disaster befell America, everything else may collapse but the government will continue. You may not know that after the year 2000 businesses began adopting or harmonizing a their Continuity Plan which dove-tails with local, state, US and international plans.
Just before the year 2000 as America was opening her borders to the world an epidemic of foreign animal diseases (FAD) emerged. Are these diseases real? Yes. Some are natural and some are created or novel, made in one of many biological warfare laboratories strategically placed around the world.
Suddenly your local farmer was thrust into a battle to fight for clean and pure local foods. Your local farmer is in the best position to determine if his or her animals are healthy and if there is any impending danger to you or your family. The government has promised to keep you safe, yet cases of food contamination are off the charts. Government officials have no answer except more control and bigger government.
Your local family farmer knows when an animal is sick, what is normal and what is not. We are always interacting with our animals and we do not have any international conflict of interests.
Surely we trust veterinarians to tell us the truth regarding Foreign Animal Disease (FAD) threats? in years past the public could trust their local veterinarians. Sadly these days most vets are a part of a Veterinary Association. The politics of those associations, often adopting the policies presented representing big money, compromising their ability to tell you the truth. Many vets have signed paperwork to turn you and your private information into the government for a mere $10. Ten dollars, can you believe it?
These forces need your voluntary help. They want you to call into your vet all cases of disease. Your vet will then call your animals problem to the Area-Vet-In-Charge (AVIC) who are under UN control.
You may ask, “What is proof of freedom”? You can only obtain your “freedom” by:
- Being inspected to UN standards
- Being tested to UN standards
- Being vaccinated to UN standards
- Being electronically identified to UN standards
You then pay for a permit or license and are verified that you are in a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.Â (WHO, 2005b).
Your Constitutional absolute right in property and to do what you choose to do with your property is suspended during a foreign animal disease event. You might think of the suspension of commerce as martial law. For all general purposes the UN has declared “war against disease” and intervention for threats to “peace & security” and “acts of aggression” many years ago. The UN has been ratcheting up those declarations thereby removing more and more freedom your lives.
Let’s read that again, slowly…….
In their own words the US and UN in tandem are going to use your census and ‘other’ information to:
- RESPOND, DETECT, CONTAIN disease. The UN clearly states complete physical, mental, and social well being so that includes all of us, everyone.
- Eradicate and control disease. Since we all have something or other, are they going to eradicate and control the disease, or the host?
- Their response is going to regionalize and compartmentalize all of us within any sector that has disease or a inadequate physical, mental or social well being.
- Their response will prioritize: money over people. At the beginning of the environmental movement it was fish over people. That worked, no public outcry.
- The recovery must be quick.
You can almost see the international grins with this next slight of hand.
You can see in the Table Top Exercise above that the Incident Command System is being set up on federalized farms. The Incident Command System was first used in California after a disastrous fire. Communication and organization was a real problem and the Incident Command System( ICS) evolved. After successful implementation by Fire Services, Emergency Management adopted, refined and perfected, the ICS System. The ICS became NIMS after September 11, 2001 .
Each federal farm will be in a zone. Zones are not our traditional boundaries of local, county or states. They are based upon your threat level for disease. The hot zone is the ‘ infected zone’ while the disease free zone is known as the ‘free zone’.
Enter the components of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). The first component is Premises Identification. Each premises is given a unique number that is geocoded (GIS/GPS) Longitude-Latitude as we are also discovering with the 2010 Census geocoding.
These Premises Identification (PIN) numbers are for quickly: communicating, tracing, and surveillance. Remember, according to the powers-that-be they consider speed is a success!
Below is the information flow chart on who and how communications interact between property owner, producer (farmer), and the ‘emergency’ government.
Phase III of NAIS: Tracing
All your information is going to public health officials.
Now that all the components are in place,coordination & communication will be needed. That means farmers and property owners will be given Incident Command training and the ICS structure will go into effect.
Notice that these regions are not states. These regions also deviate from the biblical definitions.
These branches do not follow counties. The biblical definition of a branch gives us some interesting insights.
Divisions are getting a little close to you?
Sectors are getting down the city level.
Areas could very well be your neighbor or your local family farmer.
Here is how the farms would be organized in your area.
Below is the Chain of Command for the Federalized Farm:
It is said: when you come to the table you loose, always.
