In this Thursday story from Reuters they report Venezuela's socialist president Nicolas Maduro has taken another step towards dictatorship after the Supreme Court in Venezuela dissolved their National Assembly led by the opposition party. Condemned by President Donald Trump's State Department as well as internationally, the court decision was heralded as the final death blow to any semblance of democracy in Venezuela as Maduro's opponents accused him of carrying out a coup.
And while the National Assembly literally 'ripped up' the court's decision, claiming Venezuela had been hijacked, the fact that all of this is happening at a time the country has entered a death spiral while warnings have been going out across the world of 'danger ahead' helps to confirm the signs in the road in front us that we've been reading have been right on.
As this new Forbes story reports, "the Grim Reaper has taken the scythe to the Venezuelan bolivar. The death of the bolivar is depicted in the following chart. A bolivar is worthless." Leading to starvation now happening in Venezuelan streets, the people of Venezuela have a dire warning for those who might think 'socialism' is the answer to America's and the world's problems: "this is only a nightmare".
While being completely unprepared for a long-term catastrophe, most Americans truly have no idea how fortunate we are here, with food available from the stores any time we want it as long as we have a method to pay. In fact, according to this July of 2016 story from The Atlantic, Americans lead the world in wasted food! Wired reported in July of 2016 that the US THROWS AWAY HALF of their food purchases, much of it due to a 'cult of perfection'. First, from Snyder's story:
We have been warned that there would be famines in diverse places in these times. But here in the western world we tend to be lulled into a false sense of security by our comfortable lives, not realizing that the massively inflated standard of living that we have been enjoying has been fueled by the largest mountain of debt in the history of the planet.
In the western world we can be so incredibly self-absorbed that we don’t even realize that children are literally starving to death on the other side of the planet.
“We stand at a critical point in history. Already at the beginning of the year we are facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN,” UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien said Friday.
“Now, more than 20 million people across four countries face starvation and famine. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease.”
In the previously mentioned story from Wired they reported a 'cult of perfection' is the reason for a huge amount of food wasted in the US - it never even makes it to the grocery store shelves. That's right, edible, healthy food is being thrown away because it doesn't look perfect. With a simple blemish to the skin of a fruit enough to leave it discarded, will our 'vanity' lead to our extinction? Knowing that people are starving in America, Venezuela and around the world, photos such as that seen above are sickening. From the Wired story.:
Vast quantities of fresh produce grown in the US are left in the field to rot, fed to livestock or hauled directly from the field to landfill, because of unrealistic and unyielding cosmetic standards, according to official data and interviews with dozens of farmers, packers, truckers, researchers, campaigners and government officials.
From the fields and orchards of California to the population centres of the east coast, farmers and others on the food distribution chain say high-value and nutritious food is being sacrificed to retailers’ demand for unattainable perfection.
“It’s all about blemish-free produce,” says Jay Johnson, who ships fresh fruit and vegetables from North Carolina and central Florida. “What happens in our business today is that it is either perfect, or it gets rejected. It is perfect to them, or they turn it down. And then you are stuck.”
And while the mainstream media will continue to claim that we have nothing to worry about over the radiation from Fukushima causing a collapse of the Pacific Ocean food chain, those who have long lived close to the Earth, the native Yurok Tribe which lives near the Klamath River in Northwestern California, warn of devastation.
In the 2nd video below, our videographer asks if Americans are now being programmed to accept cannibalism. As we've reported previously on ANP, from Hollywood to US politics, the globalists are throwing cannibalism in our faces. As this recent story Quayle linked to on his website reports, we’re now living in the golden age of on-screen cannibalism: Zombies are shuffling out of the cultural zeitgeist. Their replacement? A more human kind of flesh-eating monster:
Quayle also left a poignant SQnote on the link to that story: 'HELLY -WOOD' HAS TURNED INTO 'ZOMBIE WOOD'.
With television shows such as the Santa Clarita Diet seemingly attempting to 'normalize cannibalism' happening during a period of time where food shortages and hunger crisis are breaking out across the world, should we be concerned? Simply knowing that food has long been used as a weapon and as a means of control should be reason enough for us to prepare for the very worst ahead while doing our best to try to try to make our own little parts of the world a better place.
If Hollywood and the globalists really believe cannibalism is an 'answer' to some of the many problems our world faces, we may be much further down that very dark road than most Americans can even begin to imagine.
