|Solis, Soros: “Oink, oink, oink”:|
Marxists gang up on Old MacDonald’s FarmBy Judi McLeod Saturday, March 17, 2012
Old MacDonald had a farm. Until the Marxists stepped in, that is.
With the American dream of the Constitutional Republic fast fading from view, the family farm is next on the Obama regime’s ever expanding hit list.
While society is still reeling from the audacity of finding Michelle Obama’s nose in the lunch bag lovingly sent to school with innocent 4-year-olds, a well-orchestrated agenda is being set to regulate the family farm out of business.
The agenda to wipe out the family farm is being set by a deadly duo, George Soros, who is buying up farmland like some folks buy Black Friday goodies, and the Communist-cheered Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis.
We the People can count on food being the new frontier for takeover by control seeking Marxists installed in the White House.
The Des Moines Star Register’s savvy coverage on how the family farm arrived on the Obama hit list got a big boost last night from Glenn Beck on GBTV.
Don’t let the far left’s hatred of Beck keep you from seeing through what’s happening to American farmers.
With public attention spread over a thousand and one freedom-zapping Obama policies, a trajectory of innocent-sounding new regulations from both the DOT and the Department of Labor began taking on the farm last summer. Like all things Marxist, the new rules sounded harmless. In this case they covered ‘The Operation of Farm Equipment’.
Once legislated, the new rules would hold young people working on family farms to the same strict rules that are required of truckers out on the freeways.
These candy-coated rules are being written with the propaganda that they protect children from farm accidents, but in fact pave the way for something far more ominous.
“These rules would also open the door for the potential unionization of all farm workers in America. Even family farm workers.” (The Blaze, March 15, 2012).
The following is a direct quote from a letter sent to the Secretary of Labor signed by a group of 28 Senators and 70 members of the House:
Anyone smell unschooled nutritionist Michelle in this latest stink?
The response of 18,000 comments show that some within the public realm do.
States The Blaze: “Despite the 18,000 comments and Congressional opposition, the regulations appear to be moving ahead as Solis has planned. Local farm communities are quite concerned.”
While Solis, identified on Nachumlist as one of the public officials having “Socialist/Communist ties in the White House” prepares to wipe out the family farm, George Soros is busy buying up millions of acres of prime farmland.
“Investors are pouring into farmland in the U.S. and parts of Europe, Latin America and Africa as global food prices soar. (Bloomberg, Aug. 10, 2011). “A fund controlled by George Soros, the billionaire hedge-fund manager, owns 23.4 percent of South American farmland venture Adecoagro SA.
“Hedge funds Ospraie Management LLC and Passport Capital LLC as well as Harvard University’s endowment are also betting on farming. TIAA-CREF, the $466 billion financial services giant, has $2 billion invested in some 600,000 acres (240,000 hectares) of farmland in Australia, Brazil and North America, and wants to double the size of its investment.”
Ospraie is the “co-investor” with Soros that bought the remnants of ConAgra’s trading operation and renamed it…Gavilon. In the industry, it is widely acknowledged that Ospraie IS Soros. (TruthisTreason.net, June 29, 2011).
“As you probably remember, Gavilon just recently bought both DeBruce Grain out of Kansas City and the biggest grain elevator company in the Pacific Northwest, thus making Soros (who is the money behind Gavilon through both his own Soros Fund Management AND his de facto control of Ospraie) the third-largest grain company in the U.S. with 280 million bushels of storage capacity, behind only Archer Daniels Midland (542 million bushels storage capacity) and Cargill (344 million bushels storage capacity).
“Bottom line: Soros, through Ospraie, is buying up farm ground.”
While Solis and Soros play with life on the farm, count among the top global food cops the sticky-fingered United Nations.
Center for Consumer Freedom reports that “The United Nations has a bureaucrat with the title Special Rapporteur for the Right to Food, currently Belgian Olivier De Schutter. This might seem like the name of a mostly harmless office trying to reduce world hunger through aid, but if a late December report is any indication, the office wants state control of food. Not to ensure that people aren’t starving, mind you, but to take control of over six billion diets—even those of De Schutter’s pommes frites—and chocolate-eating compatriots.”
While Solis and Soros gang up on the farm, Gavilon is rumoured to be one of the potential buyers circling the wagons at Viterra, one of the largest agri-product retailers in Canada, with its massive grain handling and marketing operations located primarily in two of the world’s most fertile regions: Western Canada and South Australia.
Should Gavilon try to buy out this Canadian company, Prime Minister Stephen Harper should step up to block the bid.
By doing so, he will not only put an impressive halt to the demise of the family farm, but keep the Marxists from controlling the food on humanity’s now hyper-inflated table.
Meanwhile, at Old MacDonald’s Farm there’s an “oink-oink-oink” coming from greedy Marxists.
