Did You Know That The U.S. No Longer Has Any Strategic Grain Reserves At All?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Desolation - Public DomainOnce upon a time, it was popular to say that the U.S. government only had enough wheat stored up to provide everyone in America with half a loaf of bread.  But that is not true anymore.  Recently, I discovered that the U.S. does not have any strategic grain reserves left at all.  Zero.  Nada.  Zilch.  As you will see below, the USDA liquidated the remaining reserves back in 2008.  So if a major food crisis hit this country, our government would have nothing to give us.  Of course the federal government could always go out and try to buy or seize food to feed the population during a major emergency, but that wouldn’t actually increase the total amount of food that was available.  Instead, it would just give the government more power over who gets it.

The U.S. strategic grain reserve was initially created during the days of the Great Depression.  Back then, the wisdom of storing up food for hard times was self-evident.  Unfortunately, over time interest in this program faded, and at this point there is no strategic grain reserve in the United States at all.  The following comes from the Los Angeles Times

The modern concept of a strategic grain reserve was first proposed in the 1930s by Wall Street legend Benjamin Graham. Graham’s idea hinged on the clever management of buffer stocks of grain to tame our daily bread’s tendencies toward boom and bust. When grain prices rose above a threshold, supplies could be increased by bringing reserves to the market — which, in turn, would dampen prices. And when the price of grain went into free-fall and farmers edged toward bankruptcy, the need to fill the depleted reserve would increase the demand for corn and wheat, which would prop up the price of grain.

Following Graham’s theory, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created a grain reserve that helped rally the price of wheat and saved American farms during the Depression. In the inflationary 1970s, the USDA revamped FDR’s program into the Farmer-Owned Grain Reserve, which encouraged farmers to store grain in government facilities by offering low-cost and even no-interest loans and reimbursement to cover the storage costs. But over the next quarter of a century the dogma of deregulated global markets came to dominate American politics, and the 1996 Freedom to Farm Act abolished our national system of holding grain in reserve.

As for all that wheat held in storage, it became part of the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust, a food bank and global charity under the authority of the secretary of Agriculture. The stores were gradually depleted until 2008, when the USDA decided to convert all of what was left into its dollar equivalent. And so the grain that once stabilized prices for farmers, bakers and American consumers ended up as a number on a spreadsheet in the Department of Agriculture.

Of course if there are no major national emergencies of any kind and life just continues on normally for decades to come, this will not be an issue.

But what if something does happen?

Right now, we are already witnessing all sorts of “mini food cataclysms”.  For instance, bees just continue to die in unprecedented numbers all over the globe.  During the most recent year, U.S. beekeepers lost approximately 40 percent of their colonies

Widespread deaths among bees, known as Colony Collapse Disorder, were first reported about a decade ago, but the problem has not diminished and may have been especially bad recently.

Beekeepers across the United States lost roughly 40 percent of their colonies from April 2014 to April 2015, according to an annual survey conducted by the Bee Informed Partnership and Apiary Inspectors of America, with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Another cataclysm is happening with bananas.  In fact, it is being reported that the specific type of banana that we eat right now is in danger of being wiped off the face of the globe

Bananas are in big trouble. While the beloved fruit remains as popular as ever, its crops across the world have been hit with an infectious fungus and the damage is irreparable.

The Cavendish species of banana, which was introduced in 1965, is currently the primary banana export in the world. And it’s being completely ruined by Tropical Race 4, a fungal disease that began in Malaysia in 1990 and has since spread to Southeast Asia, Australia, and finally Africa in 2013.

Believe it or not, this is not the first time a fungus has wiped out an entire species of the bright yellow fruit. By 1965, the Gros Michel species of banana—which lasted longer, were more resilient, and didn’t require artificial ripening—was eradicated after what was called the Panama disease, a different strain of a similar fungal disease wiped out the world’s commercial banana plantations.

In addition, the recent bird flu epidemic was responsible for the deaths of 48 million turkeys and chickens.  This has driven egg prices through the roof

U.S. egg prices continued their upward climb following the most devastating outbreak of bird flu in decades, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report this week.

Prices of large Grade A eggs delivered to store doors in the Midwest Regional area hit a range of $2.73 to $2.81 per dozen, the report showed.

Indianapolis Business Journal notes this is the most expensive eggs have been, according to data that stretches back to 2000.

More than 48 million birds have been affected since avian flu first was spotted in the U.S. in December.

And of course there are many, many more examples of significant problems that are hitting our food supply.  The following short list comes from one of my previous articles

-More than 40 percent of our fresh produce comes from the state of California, but thanks to the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state much of the region is turning back into a desert.

-Also due to the persistent drought, the size of the U.S. cattle herd is now as small as it was during the 1950s, and the price of beef has doubled since the last recession.

-Over the past few years, something called “porcine epidemic diarrhea” has wiped out approximately 10 percent of the entire pig population in the United States.

-Just off the west coast of the United States, a wide variety of sea creatures are dying in unprecedented numbers.  For example, the sardine population along the west coast has dropped by a staggering 91 percent just since 2007.

-Down in Florida, citrus greening disease is absolutely crushing the citrus industry.  Crops just keep on getting smaller year after year.

Are you starting to see what I am talking about?

In many years, the world already eats more food than it produces.  We don’t have much room for error, and there are some countries that are already experiencing a full-blown food crisis.  The nation of Guatemala is one of them

Nearly one million people in Guatemala are struggling to feed themselves as poor rainfall has led to drought and shrunken harvests, worsening hunger among the poor, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said.

Linked to the El Nino weather phenomenon, this year’s drought has hit subsistence farmers living in Central America’s “dry corridor” that runs through parts of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, hard.

“In Guatemala, 170,000 families, approximately 900,000 people, have no food reserves left. This is the third consecutive year they have been hit by drought,” Diego Recalde, head of FAO in Guatemala, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

In recent articles, I have also mentioned the growing food crisis in Venezuela.  Things have gotten so bad that soldiers dressed in riot gear are now policing supermarkets

Soldiers with riot shields, tear gas canisters, and rifles patrol lines in Maracaibo, a major city in the northwest.

Scarcity is particularly acute here because smugglers — taking advantage of the leftist government’s policy of fixing prices on some goods — buy products to sell for profit in nearby Colombia.

“We have to maintain control otherwise there would be chaos,” said Lieutenant Carlos Barrera, 21, pushing back crowds at one supermarket.

As you read this, intense food shortages are also affecting Syria, the Soloman Islands, Yemen, Zimbabwe, and several nations in southern Africa.

Just because you may live in a “wealthy western nation” does not mean that this will not impact you someday as well.

In fact, a major study was just released that came to the conclusion that global “food shocks” are going to become much more common in the years ahead.  The following comes from the Guardian

The likelihood of such a shock, where production of the world’s four major commodity crops – maize, soybean, wheat and rice – falls by 5-7%, is currently once-in-a-century. But such an event will occur every 30 years or more by 2040, according to the study by the UK-US Taskforce on Extreme Weather and Global Food System Resilience.

Such a shortfall in production could leave people in developing countries in “an almost untenable position”, with the US and the UK “very much exposed” to the resulting instability and conflict, said co-author Rob Bailey, research director for energy, environment and resources at Chatham House.

Sadly, I believe that things are going to turn out to be far worse than even that report is projecting.

I am convinced that we are moving into a time when increasing volcanic activity, shifting weather patterns, geopolitical instability and severe economic problems are going to create critical shortages of food all over the planet.

So what will you and your family do when those times arrive?  Please feel free to add to the discussion by posting a comment below…

    My first thought is more “planned”destruction.

    The Economic Collapse Blog Has Issued A RED ALERT For The Last Six Months Of 2015

    Published 6/25/2015

    138 days until 12/31/2015.

    Lets do a count down every day until the end of 2015 and see just what happens

  • IsReal

    It’s because most want gluten free.

    • alan


  • Bubba Johnson

    Makes me wonder how much corn we put in our gas tanks.
    The 536 Make me sick

    • Annette Smith

      hahahaha…gluten-free fuel!

  • K

    Even though there is already hunger in some areas. Even though oil is cheaper, than it has been in a long while. Do you see them switching away from corn as a fuel. No food is the ultimate control. That is what all of this is about. A hungry person, will do almost anything for a meal. That is how they like their citizens nowadays. Easily controlled.

    • True Grit

      citizens can also go to war over food

      • jakartaman

        and its coming soon to your neighborhood!

    • SunnyFlaSnotress

      Most of the world is more malnourished than most Americans realize.

      • K

        Very true. But then again. If we were to list, the things most Americans do not realize. I suspect the list would be incredibly long. Sad, for it to be that way, in the information age.

      • Priszilla

        Even the obese are malnourished. That’s why they keep eating, hoping beyong hope the fast food gives them the nutrients they are lacking, without having any success.

        The funny part comes when the diseases strike. Flu, whooping cough, measles, dengue, tuberculosis, malaria, chikungunya, salmonella, legionnaires, pneumonia, west nile, mumps, scabies, shigella, plague, anthrax.

  • Rufus T Firefly

    2008? Jesus told Dubya that we don’t need grain or the Bill of Rights because we are all going to be flying up to heaven just as soon as we accomplish our mission in Iraq. And Allah has said the same to the Obamessiah

  • j2ashes

    frankly, i can do with pigs dying because it is very filthy and full of diseases so it would be better extinct and out of the food chain. the saying says “you are what you eat” and pig is not a good selection. as far as the fish epidemic goes, it is bad enough they are dying in the west coast; hopefully this does not spread. if it does, oh dear!

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      i can do with pigs dying because it is very filthy and full of diseases

      That’s what cooking is for, genius. I don’t particularly care for your disparagement of BACON!

      • Paul F

        pigs are not kosher and extremely unhealthy to eat. it is a sin to eat a pig. When you eat kosher, you obey GOD and eat healthy.

        • It is not a sin to eat pigs/pork. That portion of the Levitical Law was restricted to the Israelites, during the time of the Old Testament.

          The tenants of the Moral Law (e.g. Ten Commandments), however, are still intact.

          • Ancient Pathway

            It’s so funny that Christians always say that. It’s a totally manmade concept. It’s not in the Bible at all to separate God’s instructions into divisions where we can ignore part of His Word.

          • GSOB

            It’s funny how in your pious ignorance
            mock Christians when you don’t know the difference between God, idols and paganism.

          • GSOB

            God forbids His people from eating the blood of any animal.

            Blood carries both infections and toxins that might circulate in the animal’s body.

            Eating an animal’s blood exposes you to potential toxins and infections.

            Genesis 9:4

            Eating blood can be illustrated by tribes in Africa who consume large amounts of blood in their pagan culture.

            I’m, unfortunately, still banned from Charisma News. However, I just now found out that I can still post over at Charisma Magazine (one of their sister sites) :p

          • I hope you are well, Annie. I just wanted to thank you again for the support you’ve given me and the materials you’ve graciously sent me.

            I’ve got an idea that involves combining congruent testimonies from those materials (and the ones I have, also) into a single document; similar to how I’ve been doing with Biblical subjects. An informational “one stop shop”, if you will.

            May the body of Christ be equipped in these last days 🙂

          China has 1, 300 million people. Most of them eating pork. Germans mostly eat pork.

          China is used to famines. They eat anything that come s their way. Pig, dog, cat rat snake frog worms beetles anything.

        • GSOB

          Pork is not prohibited by the Bible for believers today.

          In fact, those who teach it to be wrong to eat certain meats are actually teaching doctrines of devils.

          We need to be careful to stay away from such false teaching.

  • Harbinger

    The real concern is that the generation of 40 and under has no idea how to provide for themselves. If they can’t buy it in a store they are lost. When the SHTF you better know how to be self sufficient because the government isn’t interested in helping the masses only controlling the masses. Money is of no value when your starving or desperate for water. I truly hope common sense has a rebirth, because currently it doesn’t seem to exist.

    • Dan

      Harbinger, You beat me to it. The 40 and under are completely ignorant concerning simple skills. That problem exists due to poor training at home and of course the pathetic educational system. Forget gold and silver, stable shelter, water, food and a means to protect it all.

      • Annette Smith

        Well, Dan…this makes me think that the under 40 will be the ones rioting…they are “entitled” thinkers and not of the “sufficiency” mind set… and I would think that they would be the ones to die first…while the old folks quietly exist on their stores of food they have put aside for such a time as this. I am sure that the people in the inner cities that riot and loot will be the same people as those in Ferguson…

        I cannot help but smirk! There are more of us under 40’s out there that are growing food, canning, baking, raising livestock, learning to shoot, learning to use herbs, picking up more basic skills, storing water, etc etc etc than a number of you seem to think.

          Dear Everyone,

          This is important —>

          I don’t think my post is OT here because it affects everyone —>

          The US NRC is considering a rule-change that would mean MORE RADIATION exposure for everyone.

          This is especially bad for women and children who are already more susceptible to radiation damage.

          So if you don’t want your children and grandchildren to have MORE radiation exposure,

          Please sign this Petition about this–>

          (1) Go to www dot change dot org

          (2) Then type this in the search engine there–>

          “Protect children from radiation exposure!”

          Then Sign and Share.

          Thanks everyone!

          Do this for YOURSELF and YOUR FAMILY.

        • Deanna Clark

          It’s hard to be an exception!! Good for you. But here in the town I’m the only soul mowing her own lawn, except for my 94 year old Jewish neighbor….and I live in an old, working class neighborhood. Me and dear old Morris next door.
          I can’t figure out where people get their money!! But then, gave that up years ago! All these giant Landscaping trailers…what???

    • Priszilla

      Those under 40 were raised by those over 40.

      • Harbinger

        Unfortunately most of the 40 and under were raised in single households or by parents who cared more about work then they did about family. There are always consequences for our choices: positive or negative, there are always consequences.

        • Priszilla

          So, a single parent household is a choice? By whom?

          • Lisa Morant

            Oh, knock it off. I’m a single parent and can even follow what Harbinger is saying and he/she is correct. Most of the previous generation, chose work and status over family and the breakdown of the family is what has contributed to such high statistics of single parents. Out of all my friends under 40, other than myself, I can think of only one (yes, one) that knows or has taken steps to be self-sufficient. The rest including quite a few of the over 40 crowd thinks the government will always be there to supply food, water and benefits (from social security to food stamps).

          • Priszilla

            Those under 540 were raised by those over 40.

            I grew up in socialism, what you’d call a communist country. And while the government took care of everything, nobody believed he should wait for the government or trust the government.

            So everybody I know from that place, now scattered all over the world, worked on becoming independent.

          • Nemnor

            Lisa Morant, underlying the issue with less and less “self-sufficient” families and individuals is the decadent and decaying Capitalist economic system.

            The Capitalist system is based on producing things for profits (as the primary end-purpose of production, and NOT to meet human needs as it might SEEM to be). Hence, it serves the interest of the Capitalists, if people become less “self-sufficient” and more dependent on “retail outlets” for their basic survival.

          • Ed

            Key word in the Capitalist system: Production
            In a Socialist system where people think government will “level” the playing field, production is wiped out and people starve. America was built on individual freedom and a capitalistic system. The results created the most prosperous nation in the history of mankind. Our problems are derived from too much socialism and entitlement. Embracing what’s killing our society is national suicide.

          • Harbinger

            By anyone who does not take personal responsibility for having children and chooses to have sex outside of marriage or chooses to get a divorce. Far too many people depend on the government to raise their children rather then making the personal sacrifices that are required when you have children.

          • Priszilla

            Did you ever hear of traffic accidents, work place accidents, wars, cancer, police shootings?

          • Wanda Whitehead Tumlin

            By those who prefer babies out of wedlock for government benefits. Not saying you are one of those, but there are millions of them who are now 3rd. generation welfare families. No
            Dad in the house because benefits would decrease.

          • Priszilla

            I believe there are, especially in your country, a number of young men sent off to war in foreign countries, never to return, but leaving their wife and children to fend for themselves.

          • Nemnor

            Wanda Whitehead Tumlin, at the root of all the major socioeconomic issues (including less and less “self-sufficient” families/individuals) is the decadent and decaying Capitalist economic system.

            In a system based on producing for profits (as the PRIMARY end-purpose of production), It is really in the best interest of the Capitalists that there are less and less “self-sufficient” families/individuals, and more and more people depending on “retail outlets” for basic survival. (right?)

            The root of the problem is Capitalism itself. Change the economic system to one that genuinely encourage “self-sufficiency”, then we will likely have a new generation of responsible individuals.

          • Brewer55

            So tell me, how many more times are you going to copy and paste your anti-captitalist rant in this thread?

          • Deanna Clark

            Please don’t insult small business owners, seamstresses, and lemonade stands! Corporatism today is the marriage of capitalism and communism…such as Walmart, etc. Definitions can keep things straight. Our current economic conditions are the offspring of that union.

          • Quetzol-43

            Who gave hippies and wannabe-marxist students a good a***-whomping back in the days?
            It sure wasn´t the suburb dwellers or the stay-at-home mothers!

          • Deanna Clark

            It’s a difference in the inner life, not just the outer one…a single parent can have good or poor values, same as anyone. And children read our hearts better than we ever imagine. I assume this conversation is about that mostly. It is a positive talk, not a harsh one about life circumstances.

        • Quetzol-43


          It wasn’t single parent households that raised the baby boomers, many of which still hasn’t grown up today.

          • The Baby Boom generation was considered to have ended in 1959.

        • Deanna Clark

          Actually, I chose family…and now get heck for not having a 401 K by my 40 year old kid. You can’t win, folks!

          • Harbinger

            That’s because your 40 year old kid, is just a kid. That generation has no idea what it means to do without. They haven’t faced real difficult yet, but they will. Then we will see how good their 401k helps.

          • Deanna Clark

            Our family was frugal and fairly debt free…but she and most of her colleagues take luxuries…what I call luxuries, as a given. To live without smart phones, wifi, netflix, online shopping is unthinkable. I just got my grandson a library card and he is delighted to find a public place with books and cds. 10 years old and didn’t know about libraries.
            But my kids colleagues have big vacations and debts and that seems normal to them…they’re ashamed of us.
            I took care of those yuppie kids you speak of in the 1990s. (So I could stay home with mine). When one died I told stories about her early childhood at the memorial service…made everyone laugh. I had those stories, her folks had antiques and 401 Ks. Truly, it’s kind of tragic…

          • Harbinger

            Hopefully they learned setting from you along the way and will be able to seek your advice as it is priceless.

          • Deanna Clark

            Thank you…actually all the kids I cared for grew up to be gentle, arty people with little interest in ambition and money…only in friends. This caused much conflict in the family circles. The girl who died drove a pickup and went to a working class public school. Her professor father put her in several colleges, which she didn’t like, preferring to work at a cafe with friends. After she died in a car accident, the newspaper had letters from kids complaining about the way her father fought with her, wanting her to be ambitious.
            Parents seldom consider the character of the “nanny”.

      • Alwaystomorrow

        Some comedy but complete truth in that statement.

        • James


        • Nemnor

          True. And the decline in the number of “self sufficient” Families and individuals are in tandem with the decline of the world-wide Capitalist economic system.

          The Capitalist system is based on producing things for profits (as the primary end-purpose of production). Hence, it serves the interest of the Capitalists, if people become less “self-sufficient” and more dependent on “retail outlets” for their basic survival.

          Hence, it is no accident that we have less and less “self-sufficient” Families and individuals. This BAD trend will continue, as it is in the interest of those at the top (“the 1%”) of this profit-based economic system.

            Since each generation seems to be getting worse, it’s self fulfilling!

          • James

            So the amount of scientific literature is decreasing with every generation?
            The amount of creative work is decreasing?
            The high school graduation rate is decreasing or increasing?
            Exactly how is it getting worse?

            I have the gun , a glock 17 framed in my room.
            That gun saved my life.

      Even if you know to farm, and be totally self sufficient, you will have all those millions of others who do not, and they will make every effort to take what you have. You would have to have a small army of your own, and a very secure place to fight them off.

    • Marco

      I m 28 and I know how to hunt, how to skin a rabiit how cook it and the most easy part eat it…..And i know all of agriculture.I can live by what nature gives to me…..because my father that already pass away teach me how to do it…..Most people under 40 dont know anything about that because their fathers over 50 didnt teach them that…..Most of the people if their ipads or iphones dont work anymore they suicide themselves…they only relies on tecnology and rely on supermakets to feed themselves

  • coreyb

    Grain storage is not critical since we can now survive on dried food, canned food, MRIs, and various ways to preserve food. If there is a bad grain year, we’ll survive.

    • You still need the fresh food to make the dried food and the can food.

      • coreyb

        I doubt grains can last long in storage. The Mormons are experts and can teach us how to preserve and live off the land. Canned food will buy us a few years. Stored grains will buy us a few months, if pests don’t get to them first

        • Orange Jean

          You’re wrong about that. One of the reasons the Mormons store wheat is how long it can last, if it’s not ground and you protect it from bugs and critters. I got stuck one year mostly living on my wheat storage; unfortunately I didn’t pay enough attention to the bug issue and it got weavely. Had to eat it anyway.

          (OK, I killed off the weavels first and picked them out the hard way).

          • flautistmaniac

            You can get rid of weavels with dry ice.

    • fedup

      How are those frozen pizzas in your fridge going to get made it there is no wheat to make the flour? The “food crisis” has been increasing year by year. Africans flee their homeland to go find food and escape wars. Dirt sandwiches are on their menu and they are tired of the dressing. Our own aquifers are drying up and the bottled water companies are doing a billion dollars a year business passing out bottled water while polluting the world with plastic bottles. The snowball is rolling and gathering speed. More and more countries are in the red deeper and deeper every year. Wars and rumors of wars abound. There is no end in sight to the world problems. The granaries are empty.

    • alan

      There is about 2 days supply of food in super markets. Once the trucks stop rolling, things will get ugly.

    • Annette Smith

      A lot of Mormon families have a practice that they live by and that is food storage. I am in Arizona, and there are lots of them in my community. They have a cannery here, too. Up in Idaho, there are farmer’s that sell their wheat berries to folks down here. You buy a 50 pound bag of wheat. You grind up what you need. I am thinking of getting a few of those bags of wheat. I’ll have my own grain reserves!

      • flautistmaniac

        Sprout it and juice the wheat grass and you will be able to detoxify your family from all the processed food stored up!

      But you assume it’s the end, though it seems so, we don’t know; our fatalism works for the wicked ones who get no resistance from us when we think it’s supposed to get bad, so why try?

      • Diana Smith

        Excellent point. Although everyon keeps assuming these are the end times, since we aren’t given to know when Christ returns, they may not be. Maybe this will be just another crisis and war like the Great Depression and WWII. People like to quote scripture to support their idea of not preparing. Here’s one, Nahum 2:1 “…keep the munitions, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.”

    Our economy is still functioning somewhat. If things continue I think the next things we should see is shortages as a few key factories close. Probably will see it in more in high end items then spread downward. Should also see more military blustering and threatening other countries. The week countries should implode first, especially the over populated ones. I would be very concerned if Mexico went under, we’d be in deep doo doo!

    When the crisis hits home big time, there will be an opportunity for us to start growing food like Britain did in WW2 with its ‘Dig For Victory’ campaigns etc… There is quite a bit of land out there.
    If we work together through small holdings and organic farming there will be more than enough food to go around. Also riding bikes, composting toilets, eating healthier, consuming less sugar…these things are good for everyone and the planet.

    There is another factor not mentioned,…..the monster crouching in the corner of the room,…overpopulation!

    Drought conditions have returned to south east Texas. June and most July rainfall was average or above average with heavy soaking rains and tornadoes common news on an almost daily basis. Things are quickly going to that other extreme again. Which is bad news for cattle farmers. A drought in addition to the on going oil bust will not work out for the growing Texas population.

  • ali

    “What will you do when those times arrive?” Can you predict when those times will eventually arrive? I for one am not convinced that the ultimate doom and gloom is near. yes we may face another 2008 soon but as always govt will find ways to print out of the crisis and if printing will not work then they always have the reset button which they pressed to start WW2

    You sound more credible when you give hardcore economic reasons to predict coming financial crisis then to give supply chain issues in food market.

  • SunnyFlaSnotress

    The question becomes “Why aren’t there Strategic Grain Reserves as in the past?”. All I’ve seen conjectured is that it wasn’t in the economic interest of the government.. which doesn’t speak any of the needs of the people in emergency. It is a great issue to bring up in terms of government accountability.
    On the bright side, aside from the western drought, agriculture in the rest of the country has improved enormously since the 30s.. so again, bloggers should stop playing out that worn out theme. Oh heck, trucks didn’t start mass production until about 1918. There is vastly more irrigation, including extensive waterways and piping. There are incredible achievements in mechanized production.. This ain’t your granddaddy’s farm. All around there are tremendous improvements in technique, medicines, supply/delivery, communications, etc, etc.
    Yes, there are new problems and challenges, but maybe the government doesn’t see the need for grain storage due to more than adequate secondary supplies?
    Michael is only giving you half the story until he gives the government explanation about Grain Reserves.

      Don’t forget ! The US Grain surplus also prevented global mass starvation in decades passed including Russia! We live in precarious times!

  • Bonnie

    To make matters worse, the US government pays farmers NOT to plant/harvest! And the pay is better than the wheat market pays, so why go through all of that work when the government pays better? And then there is the program when the farmer is paid to plow the crop back into the soil. Sure, it’s great fertilizer, but we need food! Most of the grain elevators are empty in the Midwest, and that was by design – they are trying to create a food crisis, and they are doing a fabulous job, don’t you think?

  • whydowanttoknow

  • Greg Burton

    Well, it was either…

    *Prosecute the bankers for the toxic mortgage/LIBOR scams that impoverished the world, making homeless, hungry, beggars out of all of us.
    *Punish the banking cartel’s multi-billion dollar drug-money laundering operations.
    *Investigate why jobs and manufacturing are being out-sourced to China. How China came to own the most of the US debt that financed the US war against…China. Why China (the oligarchy) is buying up US assets at fire sale prices, even as the US is threatening war against China (national security).
    *Stop the Fed from fanning hyper-inflation (QE1, QE2, QE3, QE∞) that will result in food riots, mass starvation.
    *Stop the looting, privatization of the world’s social safety net, public space, the commons, imposed “austerity” due to the unprosecuted toxic mortgage/LIBOR/Social Security rip-off scams.
    *Investigate who was really behind 9/11, the false-flag terrorist attack that touched off the serial, never-ending wars of pillage against the nation-states of the world, initiating the massive expropriation of public wealth, while simultaneously creating the pretext for the massive police state edifice now threatening the freedoms of everyone.
    *Investigate why the US government won’t move heaven and earth to stop the radiation spewing from Fukushima, poisoning the US, the northern hemisphere, and investigate the connections between the Fukushima, Stuxnet, HAARP and nuke created earthquakes.


    The Satanic Oligarchy…

    *Eliminates the US strategic grain reserve, gauranteeing depopulation.
    *Advocates suicide for the useless eaters; and that people work for free.
    *Makes being homeless, jobless, veteran, elderly and hungry a crime (useless eaters).
    *Ends food stamps to the poor even though there are no jobs, no social safety net, which will result in the starvation of thousands of Americans; with one in five children now living in poverty, forcing the old back to work, while the young can find no jobs.
    *Stands by while the unprosecuted banking and economic crisis destroys the ability of cities and towns to protect their own citizens, fund their police departments.
    *enables the invasion of Mexican drug cartels, allowing the cartels to traffic drugs into the US, while supplying arms via “Fast & Furious” and allowing a massive influx of illegal aliens into the US.
    *Confiscates the guns.
    *DHS buys billions of anti-personnel bullets, while giving away “tanks” to US cities and towns.
    *Flies soon to be weaponized drones over everywhere.
    *Allows Israel, a foreign country to run US NSA spying out of Mormon (Freemason/occult) Utah.
    *Pre-positions military hardware in preparation for the coming US melt-down and chaos (COG).
    *Buys thousands of “FEMA coffins” in anticipation of US mass starvation, Fukushima FEMA camp relocations.

Revelation Generation or Overpopulation?..Luke 21:28

  • Diana Smith

    Fascinating how so many of the conversations below turned to religion. Fact is, even in the nineties, the grain supply was dwindling. After the Berlin wall came down, people in govt got to thinking that with the cold war over, they didn’t need them, so they began selling them off to countries who were in food crises themselves, including Russia, during their major drought that took out their crops.
    To those that are complaining that there are supermarkets that waste–try wading through all the regulations on dating food and eliminating stock that they have to wade through just to keep food on the shelves and not get sued when some idiot doesn’t check his food first. In some states, salvage is allowed once the food hits the garbage bin. Check your laws.
    Used to consult for disaster prep. If you don’t have food in your cupboard when a crisis hits, you won’t get it at the store, either. They will be guarded by national guard to keep people from rioting over what little is left. You might get enough for a day or so, but not much more. Drug stores will be guarded too, to prevent theft and breaking and entering by ppl looking to grab whatever they can. It isn’t going to be that easy.
    I am concerned that our young people, used to eating processed foods, will store up only processed foods. These things may have a great shelf life and be what you’re used to, but they are full of chemicals that cause health problems. What good is it to survive, if you suffer.

    The problem is shiftless crew in our Congress. They are very good at governing us. They are very good at providing for themselves. They are very bad about providing for anyone else.
    There is a lot to be learned from the 30s and they simply have ignored the lessons of the 30s.
    Most of the shortages and raises in prices can be placed right at the Congress.
    The lack of cattle? Try the land grab and the Bundy situation exposing it. Like the EPA using a land tortoise as an excuse to shut down grazing lands. Shut down the grazing lands and screw the cattle rancher. That is what has happened. So you have beef at twice its original price.
    The average chicken potentially lives 45 days in our current livestock culture. They are often killed at 28 days. So that the fried chicken industry can survive.
    So the problem can be solved by putting a whole lot more chickens into a breeding program. In 45 days we should recover. Or 90 depending on how bad it has gotten.
    I am sure the government had a huge hand in the shortage.
    I have every confidence in us being the greatest nation of thieves the world has ever seen. The Congress is a good example of this.
    But pinning it all down takes time and energy.
    Prosecuting the individuals involved is not likely to happen.
    Look at derivatives and the bankers. I am not sure, but not one banker ever went to jail for fraud in the derivatives situation.
    Trump is right about one thing in the Congress. They are all bought and paid for by high money interests.
    Trump’s one blunder is to expose the money trail of all of these excellent thieves in our Congress.
    I hope Mr. Trump becomes President. I hope he has the best security known to mankind to do it because I think otherwise he is a doomed man. I think the same group is likely to threaten friends and family of Mr. Trump. I have an extremely low opinion of humanity.
    I suggest he ship family out of the country to a well armed place.
    Am I unrealistic? I think Mr. Perot quit for that reason. His family was threatened.
    Right now Mr. Trump is not taken seriously enough by the major powers behind the Congressional Thieves. They will realise their mistake soon.
    It is possible to have a clear majority of the Electorial Congress and still be turned away from being President if they can have a second vote. Trump is possibly aware of that.
    Right now in any grocery store throughout the nation you have mutated wheat corrupting about a third or more of the products on the shelves. I speak of genetically altered food. Right now it is law that they do not have to tell you what you are eating as far as genetically altered food. Just about every cereal on the market is infested with mutated food.
    I suggest that the entire political scene will collapse in the next 3 months or so.
    The rats are indeed attempting to leave the sinking ship.

    Personally the whole idea of GMOs gives me the creeps and I believe allowing them into the food chain makes us especially vulnerable.

    On the other hand, maybe I’m a bit too paranoid about that… because recently I had a real scare. I live in an area that is agricultural, mostly smaller farms (in the 500 acre range) but it’s common for farmers to have leases on multiple plots from various landowners in addition to whatever they own and farm. Mostly corn, soy, and spring wheat grown in rotation, also some cotton. Most of these are GMO and it’s my understanding that most of the corn is raised for fuel.

    This year it looked like most everyone was growing corn; then a few weeks ago came the scare. I noticed the corn looked WEIRD, like the ears were not right… they looked like thick bunches or flower heads, not ears of corn. I started wondering then if that was some kind of GMO disaster in the making, but I started looking into it.

    It appears that what happened may be that they planted sorghum instead of corn; sorghum looks a lot like corn until it gets it’s head on it (or whatever they call it)… or it might be some other crop I’ve never seen before. And pigs can eat sorghum and that’s one of the main things they raises here, along with Angus cattle. It appears a year or so ago the state’s ag people started encouraging people to grow sorghum as a cheaper kind of silage and more drought resistant. My neighbor (who grew up in these parts) thinks it might be something else but it’s hard to be sure. We have had near drought conditions and in most places whatever it is it’s all dried up.

    Okay, kids! Here’s some good news! Contacted several folks and they reported interesting things.

    The Utah Bee Association says CCD is on the decline. They still have no conclusive reason as to why it was happening (they gave 10 ideas), and said my theory of bee snatching by use of traps is also a possibility. Colonies are stabilizing today.

    Murray McMurray Hatchery says they’re having no issues with the avian flu; their chicks are inoculated for a small fee, but their prices have not risen due to the disease. White Leghorns go for $3.17 for 1 – 5 hens, cheaper with more ordered.

    The Water folks here said if California wanted more water; they shouldn’t demolished their systems to protect junk animals.

    The grain reserves was no surprise. Fortunately grain is the easiest crop in the world to grow – if you can grow a lawn, you can grow grains. For wheat: prepare (dig or plow up) a space 300′ X 50′; fertilize with 16-16-16 and lime; wait a week and re-plow; scatter seeds, use a tree branch to cover, then water; after the wheat sprouts use a scythe or weed whacker to cut it down before the snow arrives; the next spring when snow melts apply 21-0-0; it will regrow, and harvest when ready; thresh and winnow, dry and store. Easy. If growing oats; plant in prepared soil and harvest after 2 months; dry and store.

    I’m also recommending that folks seriously look into an aquaponics system for their home. Pumps and air stones can work off a 120 V photovoltaic system. and if seeds become a problem, plant cloning is feasible now. There are new breeds of bananas that work well with hydroponic set-ups.

    Ah…can anyone say Reaganomics? It’s where and when it started. The thinking was the taxpayers were somehow paying for food twice with supports.

    Well this always happen. Good time lead to populations growths. Then along comes pestilence, weather or climate cycles, water shortages and the next thing you know you have starvations and wars.
    Unless we have a very sustainable energy source like fusion these cycles will continue. But I understand the importance of grain reserves for price stabilization.
    But as usual the problem is dumber then dump politicos along with schemers and acerbated by LIVs and other voting idiots. Governments just can’t bring about prosperity without diligent oversight.


    Perhaps a society of independent city-states centering around a Randian market would be Utopia, but it would not allow much of the culture we currently have. Perhaps you could continue to train geeks to connect all of these people together with the Internet so that this website could even exist. But it is more likely those city states would be in a continuous battle for territory and water that would demand all resources poured into fighting, farming, and F-ing (to churn out babies).
    Specialization and mechanization allow each human to be more productive. Even “self sufficient” farmers would be as helpless as anyone else without the diesel man coming to fill the tanks every week. Like it or not, we depend on each other and maintaining relationships with one another in order to live.

    We’re becoming a gluten free country so it makes perfect sense.

    They will last a heck of a lot longer than that. All those things will last at least 30 in Nitrogen or any other way of getting rid of the oxygen as long as they are stored in mylar bags.

    6 hours in school, the rest of the day with parents.

    It’s the job of the parents to instill interest in learning. Just look to South East Asia. Parents make sure the kids do their homework and have a clean pressed shirt in the morning.

    Is the Black horse of Rev 6 riding and just about ready to reveal his massive payload? Will the Red horse’s payload be delivered shortly before or after?
    Sobering thoughts folks! Obviously, the US has not prepared as did Joseph did for Egypt in the Old Testament – Gen 41. Why?

    Latin & Greek in high school, now we offer remedial English in Harvard.
    Latin & Greek are still taught, however foreign languages have shifted to Spanish & French.
    As for remedial classes, the expansion of high school for everybody created the demand for remedial classes.
    Before, those who needed remedial classes were never given the opportunity to go to high school.

    • BigGaySteve

      Latin is the base for many current languages. With latin & Greek people learned of logic & reason. There is no point to teaching Spanish as Mexicans cant understand Spanish. If we are to have foreign languages taught it should be ones of productive nations like German, Russian, Chinese, or Japanese not learning a language that most from south of the border cant understand when they get hand outs.

      • James

        There is no point to teaching Spanish as Mexicans cant understand Spanish. WTF

        So spanish is not the national language of mexico. ROFLMAO.
        Also, not all immigrants are welfare mooches. Most are white and conservative.
        Mexico has a one trillion dollar GDP. THey sure are unproductive (Sarc)

        • BigGaySteve

          Yea the richest man in the world Carlos Slims got that way by his government enforced monopoly giving him a cut every time illegals wire money back to mexico, and got the obamaphone contract for being a minority owned company. There are smart Mexicans in the Mexican oil fields but only those that would be on welfare if mexico had welfare come to the US

          • James

            I dont even know where to start.
            Slim does have a monoploy over telecommunications, not money transfer.
            Obamaphone or Lifeline can go through any carrier even thouse whose executives are white, ex CenturyLink, AT&T, Verizon, etc. I dont understand why it is called an Obamaphone because the Lifeline program was started by regan.

          • BigGaySteve

            Reagan was only home phone lines, obamaphones are cell phones. My grandmother doesn’t have a cell phone but Latrina’s 26 crack babies all do.

    I think the probability of a “famine” here in the USA is highly probable. Control the food and water, you control the population.

    There have been 5 great extinctions on Earth. The direct cause of the largest was Cyanobacteria, almost nothing survived, even in the seas. This same bacteria was also implicated in the other 4 events.
    Planetary/ocean heating is causing major growth of algae, fungus, molds. You see it as ‘ blooms, crop destruction, SARS, infections in animal herds’..[In reality the grain loss was due to mold]. This bacteria will and is destroying the world. It is now able to live in Alpine waters thus killing herds of grazing animals. Algae is killing people around the world through their water supplies. Lots of people. In fact I just read that some cities here have shut off water due to blooms. The misconception here is that the bloom is the problem, not so. The bacteria is all through the water.
    Although Obama says “2+2=5 and that’s OK” we all know that 4 is the answer. So if you really start adding up all clever deceptions, you can see the correct answer, THE ONE THING THEY DON’T TALK ABOUT TOO MUCH, BACTERIA. And what’s driving it. Heat waves. Increase rain, floods, fertilizer run global waters.
    Do you think world govt is going to say we are running out of food? And clean water? I have 2 words: mass hysteria.
    We are in the 6th Great Extinction. NOTHING is as it appears. Food will not always be in stores or be affordable. Don’t take water for granted. Know what Martial Law REALLY means. And for God sakes, have an emergency grab and go bag by the door for each person, including PETS.
    Normalcy bias is not your friend..

  • melvin johns

    What is coming upon the American people in the aftermath of the coming surprise nuclear attack from Russia and China is incomprehensible to the average mind. The elites that control the United Nations want the people of this nation to beg for world government because of the conditions that will be foisted upon them. The lack of grain supplies is just one of the many pieces of the puzzle that is unfolding right before our eyes. The upcoming war with Russia is the event that will begin what the bible calls the time of Jacob’s trouble also known as the seven year tribulation.

    Write your Congressman and Senator and your state’s Governor; express your concerns. Then start building your own emergency food supply, and water too, don’t forget the water.

    Every year I raise a 100 X 80 truck garden and give two thirds away to my elderly neighbors. also freeze/can/dry what we need through the year. like to also can fish, chicken or Grouse, Venison, Elk, and Pork. Tis year I am skipping the pork. It is getting to expensive. But My wife and I can legally take two Deer and two Elk. That plus the Salmon and bottom fish we will be fine, and so will the rest of our grown up kids and grand kids. But today a read a article that radiation from Japan in the North Western Pacific is killing fish by the thousand. If that is true, en a major fishery is gone. Now Consider the terrible drought in California, Oregon and Washington. No one is really talking about Oregon and Washington yet. California produces 1/4 of the Vegetables, nuts, fruits and berries for the United States. Oregon, Cattle, Sheep, Grain, potatoes, sugar beets, and the Willamette valley nuts vegetables and grapes. Washington, Fish, Cattle, potatoes and grain. Alpha (Feed for Dairy Cattle and Horses, It is even pelletised and shipped to Japan for their Dairy’s) Now we are over 1/4 of the fruits, vegetables, nuts, and have cut into also potatoes and quite a bit of wheat and barley. But, I am not done.The Sunday Tacoma News Tribune, Aug 9th, had quite a article in section A, regarding the Ogallala Aquifier which is in the center of the United States. It is under the following states, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma New Mexico, and Texas. (Look it up in Wikipedia) . The article was about a county in Kansas. hey use this Aquifier in all the listed States above to irrigate crops and for drinking water. The Kansas Farmer has a well about 600 feet deep to pump he water up to irrigate his corn. He stood by one field that was not irrigated, dry as a bone, the field that was was a healthy green. Why did he not irrigate the dry field? The water table is dropping faster than it can be replaced. this farmers area it may be dry in two years. Rain water doesn’t replace the water. In Wikipedia it says it will be dry in 2028. This is not caused by MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING. The worlds bread basket is drying up. Use your search engine like I did. Look up in the Bible, “I will with Hold the Rain”, Has his judgement started? Time will tell. There are many,many verses that The Lord says he will with hold the Rain. I told you a reference where you can look them up. They are not my words, but his words.

  • Matt Rustebakke

    Not totally true. All doom and gloom. I am a farmer, and know for a fact there is millions if not billions of bushels of grain in storage. Perhaps not government storage facilities, there is so much stored on farms and private storage facilities its not even possible to get an accurate figure. I don’t know where these writers get this info but its not entirely accurate. Wheat and other small grains is at an all time low price which tells me there is such a huge surplus there is no industrial nees for it. So low in fact there might be many farmers going bankrupt after this season because wheat isnt even bringing enough to cover operating expense. Only way farmers are staying afloat is bank loans and government handouts.

  • Arizona

    DHS,and the police gangs of america spent the entire summer of 2015,LOOTING all the reserve grain silos in america,THE OWNERS were forced at gun point to give up their grain,HUNDREDS of semi-truck loads of grain were taken,WHERE,to the underground cities of course,mainly in texas………………
