Seeds. Different kinds, being mailed to different people in many different states, from Suzhou JiangSu China. Tracking number is un-trackable and untraceable to date.
For preppers seeds are like.... mana, except for the fact that none of the people receiving these seeds, ordered them.
Dire warnings are coming from the USDA, and Agricultural offices in a variety of states about not planting them, with claims they could be specifically geared for ruining crops, rather than creating food.
States stretching from Washington to Virginia have also told residents not to put the seeds in the ground, after they arrived in the mailboxes of people who did not order them.Officials said the seeds could grow invasive species that threaten crops or livestock.
The USDA said on Tuesday it was collecting the seeds and would test them to determine if they were a concern to agriculture or the environment. The agency is working with states and the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection to investigate the packages, according to a statement.
The USDA said it had no evidence the shipments are something other than a “brushing scam,” in which people receive unsolicited items from a seller who then posts false customer reviews to boost sales.
Now we see reports indicating it isn't just Americans being targeted, but now Canadians are reporting receiving these packages of seeds.
As can be seen in the recent Google images regarding these bizarre deliveries, they come in different packaging, the seeds are not always the same, but they all appear to have the same origin.
The phone number listed appears to be the same on the labels we have found, but it is not a Chinese exchange, it appears to be within the U.S., although a phone number lookup doesn't not identify who the number belongs to, but one of the search results does bring up "China Post," which is listed as the carrier. (ANP opted not to call the number because if it does route through to China, well, I have no desire to call China!)
When using the global tracking system, entering the number listed on our package, it came up with the message "No information about your package. Package has not been sent yet or you entered invalid tracking number."
“Unauthorized seeds could be the seeds of invasive plants, or carry plant pests, which can be harmful when introduced into Canada,” the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said in a statement. “These species can invade agricultural and natural areas, causing serious damage to our plant resources.”
China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday said that the problem parcels are forged and not from the Asian nation. China Post has strictly followed regulations that ban the sending and receiving of seeds, and has talked to its U.S. counterparts about returning parcels to the Asian nation so it can investigate further, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said.
The USDA is collecting the seed packages and will test their contents for anything that could be of concern to U.S. agriculture or the environment, it said.
The mainstream or establishment media has been quick to report on this issue, and offer the quotes we have cited, but they stop at the possibility of the seeds harming other crops, and explain to you what a "brushing" scam is, but they stop there, rather than dealing with the disturbing ramifications of either explanation.
Agricultural and/or Biological Warfare: While the Chinese deny these packages are originating in China, the "from" address is quite clear on every package.
Now we have heard quite a bit about COVID-19, some accurate, some not, but the one things everyone appears to agree on is that it originated in China.
Some think it was created as a biological weapon that was accidentally released too soon, others think it was released on purpose.
Either way, COVID-19 is a pandemic, meaning it has infected a high number of people in multiple countries. China and the U.S. are also involved in a trade war.
So, really, what are the odds that these unsolicited packages are showing up on our doorsteps, from China no less, the very nation that we are at odds with on multiple fronts?
Even if these seeds are perfectly harmless, isn't the aim to create fear and terror, whether for our lives, or for our crops, land and agricultural health?
Brushing Scam: If this is a "brushing scam," where "people receive unsolicited items from a seller who then posts false customer reviews to boost sales," then we are talking about a whole other problem that is just as disturbing.
The scammers, or sellers, are showing they have access to our names and home addresses.
Since we are not being charged for these "seeds from China," (yes, I checked our bank account), it is possible, even likely, they cannot access our financial information, i.e. credit card, debit card, or account numbers.
Still, for an individual or group to have access to our full names, and home addresses, should concern everyone.
Today it is seeds, tomorrow it could be "white powder," or any other type of bioweapon.
WHY THE MEDIA ONLY HALF-WAY REPORTING?
If we have learned anything from these past few years, it is that if something is good for our country, a significant amount of radical liberals will be against it, and if something is bad for our nation, those same liberals will support it.
Not just the rioting within the U.S., but look how the media, celebrities, the sports industry, and others are all playing protectionists for the Chinese.
Dare to say COVID-19 is the Wuhan virus, or comment on the fact that it originated in China, and you have people howling the word "RACIST!"
With a number Americans in most states now receiving these packages, it would be normal to not only "report" on what their audience already knows, but to explain the possible ramifications and dangers.... yet they stop short of doing so.
The excuse would probably be "but we don't want to scare people."
That excuse does not wash, since they are fervently telling people "don't plant the seeds," " don't open the packages," or "call the USDA", or your state's agriculture department "immediately."
The only reason the media is only doing a half-assed job on reporting this at all is because they "have to" mention it because it is news that they cannot avoid.
The reason they don't go all the way to inform their audience, is because they are in China's pocket, and are determined to protect them from bad optics.
That, in my opinion, is bad optics for the media itself.
A couple points of advice, to which most of you already know: Avoid products from China as much as possible, and don't open anything you did not order from anybody.
These are dangerous times and while the media might want downplay the ramifications of this, even if the seeds are harmless, the next "unsolicited" package may not be.
