h/t PF…

Is the U.S. government stockpiling huge amounts of food and supplies in anticipation that something bad is about to happen? Is something about to cause a major economic crisis that will require large quantities of emergency food?

For a while, I have been hearing things about the government storing food through the grapevine and I have not been sure what to think about those rumors. Well, today I received a phone call that blew me away. I debated for quite a while before I decided whether or not to share this information with you all. Normally I do not like to talk about anything unless I am able to prove it by pointing to an article in the mainstream media. But the source of the information that I am about to share with you is rock solid. I cannot reveal his name, so you will just have to trust me on that. Hopefully the following information will be one more “dot” as we all try to connect the dots about what is really going on out there.

This morning I received a call from a very prominent person in the storable food industry. He has asked me not to reveal his name. I have been dealing with him for an extended period of time and I consider him to be a rock-solid source. When I talked to him today, he had just received a huge order for storable food from a U.S. government source. He told me that the dollar amount of the order was in the “five figures”.

When he asked about why so much food was being ordered, the government source told him essentially that “you know what is coming”. When pushed further, the government official did not elaborate.

It was unclear whether this was part of a larger food stockpiling program by the government. Perhaps this order was just part of the normal preparations that government agencies make for potential emergencies.

Nobody could blame the government for storing up some emergency food. That is something that we all should be doing.

The truth is that the government is taking emergency preparedness very seriously these days. For example, you can see video of a high-level NASA official urging NASA employees to develop preparedness plans for their own families, Jun 11, 2011:

But what if this is a sign of something bigger?

Remember, this is not some rumor I just pulled off the Internet. This is not something that someone got from “an aunt” somewhere.

I got this information over the telephone from the person who took the order.

I promised that I would not reveal any more specific details, so I won’t.

But this does seem to fit with a pattern that we are beginning to see emerge.

Earlier this year, FEMA issued an RFI (Request For Information) that inquired about the availability of 140 million meals of emergency food. Apparently the food was meant to be stored up in case there was a “catastrophic disaster event” along the New Madrid Fault.

The following is an excerpt….

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations. FEMA is considering the following specifications (14M meals per day):

– Serving Size – 12 ounce (entree not to exceed 480 calorie count);

– Maximum calories – 1200 and/or 1165 per meal;

– Protein parameters – 29g-37g kit;

– Trans Fat – 0;

– Saturated Fat – 13 grams (9 calories per gram);

– Total Fat – 47 grams (less than 10% calories);

– Maximum sodium – 800-930 mg;

Requested Menus to include snacks (i.e. fruit mix, candy, chocolate/peanut butter squeezers, drink mix, condiments, and utensils). All meals/kits must have 36 months of remaining shelf life upon delivery. Packaging should be environmentally friendly.

Mysteriously, seven days later this RFI was cancelled.

This In-Depth, alarming report was on the Hawaii News Daily written by Michael Snyder This is a JUST Must to be shared with everyone you know you best be prepared!

Unfortunately, shortages have not been limited to storable food. Most Americans don’t realize this, but there is a significant shortage of certain pharmaceutical drugs in many areas of the country right now.

This from ABC JUST 9/23/2011, the same time THIS report came out!…

From Above Top Secret:

The article is well written, and well referrenced. With that being said, I believe the author’s source and find it to be accurate. I invite you to formulate your own opinion on it, but IMHO if this is true this is indeed another cog of truth in the conspiracy engine to show Americans that the U.S. Government is indeed preparing, as it has warned us to do.

I have followed ATS for 12 years & find them to be beyond credible. Go to this link for their comprehensive research & MUST read comments on this article.

From my best survival source, which you can find in the dropdown menu, David Morris had this to say:

As you already know, a food shortage can be brought on by a number of causes ranging from natural disasters and economic collapse to terror attacks and war.

When we see these situations occur on TV the news always covers the people who are completely dependent on the kindness and generosity of others who show up to the rescue. While heartwarming to see people helping each other, it’s not a plan that secures your
family’s survival.

If a situation is bad enough these knights in shining armor will not show up and it’s not their responsibility to either.

Food storage is a vital part of any survival plan

I leave you with the fact we all know JUST listening to the news everyday, the dire shape the world is in. This administration is blatantly trying to collapse us from within. We cannot discount any report such as this, which many may call conspiracy, over reaching or melodramatic. If you feel that, please leave room for doubt & be prepared. What will it hurt? ~ JP

One of the finest recent examples of liberal media bias has been the press’s hostile treatment of author Ron Suskind for having the nerve to write a book critical of the Obama administration.

As Suskind told CNN’s Howard Kurtz Sunday, these are “[m]any of the folks who were praising me mightily during the Bush era” for books criticizing the previous president :

KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan employed by the U.S. government killed one American and wounded another in an attack on a CIA office in Kabul, officials said Monday.

The shooting Sunday evening is the most recent in a growing number of attacks this year by Afghans working with the country’s international allies. Some assailants have turned out to be Taliban sleeper agents, while others have been motivated by personal grievances.

Gunfire was first heard sometime after 8 p.m. local time around the former Ariana Hotel, a building that ex-U.S. intelligence officials said is the CIA station in Kabul. The spy agency occupied the heavily secured building just blocks from the Afghan presidential palace in late 2001 after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled the Taliban.

The U.S. Embassy said an Afghan employee of the complex shot dead an American citizen and wounded another before being killed.

President Barack Obama’s private musings while waiting to be introduced at an American Jobs Act event:

Pass this bill.

I admit it’s not “yes, we can,” but it gets the crowd chanting.

Said it 18 times before Congress, 12 times in the Rose Garden, 24 in Raleigh, 18 in Richmond, 18 in Columbus. Maybe I’ll set a new record today.

The dirty secret is I don’t really want to pass this bill. Like that historian told my senior advisors, I can’t win re-election by emphasizing what I’ve done. Better to run against a do-nothing Congress, Harry Truman-style. I do wish the House Republicans would stop passing stuff though.

~ Snippets:

* I’m sure I can even get away with calling my bill bipartisan, even if just a Republican or two have supported only a provision here or there once. And best of all, I get to claim the bill is paid for.

* Then there’s spending cuts. That guy from ABC — Tapper — is giving me a hard time again, saying I’m “trying to pad” the numbers by counting savings that were already happening from winding down Iraq and Afghanistan and double counting $1 trillion in cuts from the debt ceiling deal. What’s with that guy, anyway? He needs to fall in line. Of course I’m padding the numbers. How else could I claim to be saving trillions?

* But, hopefully, details will get lost when I talk about the “Buffett rule” and “pay their fair share.” I know the rich pay most of the income taxes and at higher rates than anyone else, but why let facts get in the way? I need to win this election! Warren should give his secretary stock. Then she’d lower her tax bill like he does by getting lots of capital gains.

* Well, enough of this: they’re starting the music in the auditorium. That’s my signal. Are they playing “City of Blinding Love” by U-2 again? Much better than “Hail to the Chief.” How’s it go? “The more you see, the less you know/the less you find out as you go/I knew much more then/than I do now.” OK, fired up, ready to go and remember, pass this bill!

~ This reminded me of one of my favorite movies, “My Fellow Americans.”. Everyone is familiar with the song “Hail to the Chief,” but not everyone knows that several presidents have written words to them. Most notably Presidents Kramers and Douglas. And now Rove wrote that for Obama :)

“Hail to the chief, he’s the chief and he needs hailing, he is the chief so everybody hail like crazy.”– Jack Lemmon

“Hail to the Chief if you don’t I’ll have to kill you, I am the chief so you had better watch your step, you bastards”– James Garner
