Last spring, in March, at a press conference in Brussels, Joe Biden explained that while the sanctions he is imposing against Russia are morally necessary, they are affecting food supplies around the world, including here in the United States. They are going to cause shortages. “It’s going to be real,” he said.
Now, Biden said this in a very strange way. There was no hint or panic, the emotions you would expect from a leader who predicts the death of humans from starvation. None of this. Instead, there was pure, neutrality. Biden could describe the weather or a trip to the dry cleaners. “It’s going to be real.”
Then Biden continued by mentioning the discussions he had with European allies. He told us all about it. When he met with the group, Biden said, they talked about “how we can accelerate and spread food shortages.” That’s literally what Joe Biden said. It’s on tape.
So here you have the President of the United States promising to increase food shortages at a press conference. It seemed like a newsworthy event, but none of the news organizations in this country felt like it. Neither did the White House correct it. But others were watching. So within days, the clip was all over social media and Facebook immediately flagged it as “fake news”.

Now, strictly speaking, this is wrong. There is nothing wrong with the video. It was absolutely real. No one can check it. But apparently, Facebook users should have realized that Joe Biden is old and therefore not accountable for his words. Taking Joe Biden literally qualifies as “misinformation.” Now, we’ll leave that entire episode for you to guess. We can’t know what, if anything, Joe Biden was thinking when he said those words in Brussels. We can only tell you what happened next.
Strange disasters began to plague food processors across America. The following month in April, the headquarters of one of the country’s largest organic food distributors was destroyed in a fire. Unknown cause. The following month, in the same week, in fact, two separate private plane crashes hit two separate food processing centers. A plane crashed into a General Mills plant in Georgia. Another plane crashed into a food plant in Idaho. By the way, in February, a boiler explosion destroyed a potato processing plant in Oregon and so on.
So even people who aren’t given to connecting the dots, who don’t consider themselves conspiracy nuts, start to wonder, “Is there something here?” But no one could tell. The Biden administration had no answers and no way to get answers because they had no data.
And it’s interesting because the Biden administration tracks a lot of things, things that it cares about, race and ethnicity and the sex life, for example, of everybody in America. Do we even have transpacific islanders playing woodwinds in major symphonies? What about gay Southeast Asians in long-haul trucking? These are the questions that concern the bean counters in the Biden administration.
And yet at the same time, the same administration keeps no real record of what our food supply infrastructure is. Apparently it never occurred to them. So, honestly, we can’t really know one way or the other, because we don’t have a baseline, whether something weird is going on with the food suppliers.
But some days you are surprised. On Saturday, a large commercial egg farm in central Connecticut burned to the ground for no apparent reason. big fire At least 20 fire departments responded, putting the fire under control for more than 8 hours. More than 100,000 chickens died.
Now, this is a sad story. But the interesting thing is that most of the media companies did not consider it as a story. Ironically, considering egg prices has become a real issue for most Americans. Egg prices have increased by more than 100% in many places. And yet at the very moment, when eggs are a concern, 100,000 chickens die in a fire. And the New York Times, which is right next door in a neighboring state, doesn’t even cover the fire. what’s that? do not worry. “Things like this have nothing to do with egg prices: the media says it’s just avian flu. See.
Reporter: Egg consumption has increased over the years, as many people are eating them as an important source of protein. But due to the ongoing bird or avian flu epidemic, the production has decreased. Over the past year, the USDA says about 58 million birds in the U.S. have been infected, making it the deadliest outbreak in U.S. history. Unfortunately, infected birds have to be culled, causing egg supplies to drop and prices to rise. In some cases, stores are running out and limiting the amount people can buy.
Buyer: We bought eggs here at Fry’s and Leon’s earlier this week. We paid $8.99 for a dozen eggs.
So if you ask someone in the Department of Agriculture, for example, or in the Biden administration, how much they’re paying attention, which isn’t much, they’ll tell you that egg prices are going down because of avian flu. There are more. And it’s a completely natural virus, just like COVID. Prices have nothing to do with the burning of chicken farms. Again, it’s not like anyone in the government tracks this sort of thing. Why would they? Because nothing like that can happen. Settle down, QAnon. And a lot of people, especially the national news media, who couldn’t identify chicken if it didn’t come with dipping sauce, are satisfied with that explanation.
But we noticed that some farmers who deal in chickens daily do not believe this. Some of them, some chicken farmers, have noticed something strange. Their hens are not laying eggs or not laying as many eggs. And these chickens don’t seem to get sick with avian flu. They are not dying. They are still alive. They are not just producing eggs.
Now healthy hens lay eggs regularly every 24 to 26 hours. But suddenly, chicken owners across the country — not all of them, but many of them — are reporting that they’re not getting any eggs or that many. So what is the reason for this? Clearly, something is causing it. Some have concluded that their chicken feed may be responsible. Watch
Chicken Farmer: Is commercial feed the reason many people’s chickens aren’t laying it all? This is a question I’ve been asking myself and I’ve seen all over TikTok, Facebook, everywhere. I’m talking about chickens. A lot of people don’t have eggs for six to seven months. Like, it’s not normal. I have at least 60 chickens that should be laid. I have a flock of about 100, and I was getting two to three eggs a summer. I genuinely think it’s the feed, especially after seeing so many people have the same problem, switching to the local feed, and it fixing itself.
So why did we put that clip on TV? Because that chicken owner speaks for all chicken owners? Because she is the world’s foremost expert on avian questions? maybe not. But because the people who should be keeping track of what’s going on are clearly not keeping track of what’s going on because they just don’t care.
And so instead of going to the usual AG Department sources or calling the White House press office, we decided to listen to people who actually have chickens. And that one, for example, the lady that you just saw, says that she changed her chicken feed and that solved the problem. His chickens started laying eggs again immediately.
Now, the specific brand of feed referenced in this video is called “Producer’s Pride.” It is made by Purina. Most chicken feed brands are made by Purina. Purina also makes the producer proud — a cattle feed that was recently recalled after regulators linked the product to a string of unknown cattle deaths. It was taken off the shelves because there was a good chance you shouldn’t feed it to livestock.
Could this happen again? Now, we don’t know. But we must tell you because, again, no one else seems to be watching, that it’s not just producer pride that some chicken owners are worried about. Some have concerns about several other brands of chicken feed manufactured by Purina.
So we reached out to the company today because, again, we’re ignorant on this, but we thought we’d poke around a little bit. And they said they’ve looked into that as well, and their feed is not the problem. And that may be absolutely true. We don’t know. What we found, however, was that this explanation was more than enough for most media companies, as they are trained to accept corporate press releases as the final word on any subject. Well, he said it’s not a problem. So it’s not a problem.
We don’t think this is the last word. Again, we can’t tell you for sure either way. But we do know, and here’s really a point, that America’s food supply is one of those topics worth getting a little crazy about. It’s not about how many Trans-Pacific Islander oboists we have. It is a matter of national survival – of food. The question on which the rise and fall of empires.

And in this particular case, eggs, poultry and chicken, avian products, are big, big sources of protein in most Americans’ diets. And you need protein to survive. If you don’t have enough, you become deficient in protein, and this can stunt children’s growth. So a question like this, whatever its cause, can easily blossom into a real public health crisis. And of course, this is potentially a national security issue as well.
Eggs are currently in short supply at such a high price that smugglers are smuggling eggs across our border. See it.
Reporter 2: Here at the busy San Ysidro border crossing in California, word is traveling fast about a new item being smuggled into the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported a 108 percent increase in seized egg products and poultry that people tried to smuggle through U.S. ports in the past two months alone.
So are we going a little crazy about the US food supply? yes we are And we are proud of it. And our leaders must be ever more paranoid about our food supply.
Food, energy, water. These three things are important. The rest is noise. And, of course, as usual, they’re ignoring what’s really important.
