How Vulnerable Is America to Mass Starvation?


depression starvation 1depression starvation 2
An estimated seven million people starved to death during the Great Depression. And amazingly, these people had food preparation skills that are basically a lost art in America today (e.g. canning).
With a staggering debt looming over the country, how vulnerable are Americans to starvation if and when an economic collapse takes down our economy?
It is not a secret that the world is in a desperate situation when it comes to overall world hunger. The World Bank cites the disturbing fact that there have been 51 food riots in 37 countries in recent memory due to high food prices and the further escalation of food prices has no end in sight. The World Bank further speculates that the present state of food prices could lead to political instability and this is the kind of stuff that wars are made of. And what is the number one cause of rising food prices according to the World Bank? It is the increasing demand (see attached PDF)  for food from a growing population inside of China. The future military implications should be self-evident. But what about the United States? How vulnerable are Americans to the possibility of mass starvation?

A Snapshot of America’s Food Vulnerability

cbs reports on hunger in america
starvation in modern americastarvation please helpAlmost beyond belief, a full 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase typically buy cheap, unhealthy food and still just have enough to feed their children.  The price of food continues to quickly out-pace the paychecks of most middle class families.  For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $3.88 per pound! There are nearly 50 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in various degrees of distress. Just over one out of seven Americans rely on obtaining food from various banks at one point or another and these food banks are beginning to experience record shortages.
In a case of “defend the nation and starve”, military families are feeling even more stress  from not being able to obtain sufficient quantities of food as 25% of America military families require outside assistance in getting enough to eat. What does this say about an administration which uses our soldiers to defend the nation and then kicks them to the curb by denying their VA  health benefits as the government also starves their families because they cannot survive on what we pay our soldiers? This is disgraceful, but it is the Obama fundamental transformation of American way!

 America Has No Way to Keep Up with Food Inflation

In calculating the overall inflation rate, the government does not count the price of food. However, there are several reliable food inflation figures and the food inflation rate is estimated to be between 19% to 22%.

food inflation
In the article, “Food Price Inflation Scares the Fed” the commodity food costs were exploding on the upside. Calculation of the food inflation rate, given the lag in commodity costs impacting prices on grocery store shelves, we find that the annual U.S. food inflation rate is now running at a staggering +22% and the rate is increasing with no end in sight to the escalation.

The real and specific cause for food inflation is the low-end $940 billion of additional monetary stimulus from the United States Federal Reserve’s quantitative (bail out) easing over the last 18 months. No economy can sustain the value of its money, when currency floods the market like it has during the present administration. The net effect is that the value of your money has been seriously eroded thanks to such misguided practices as the bail-outs.

adams homeless foodstarvation child hungerAccording to the New York Times, the typical American family is now worth 36% less than it was worth only 10 years ago!

Shockingly, one out of every six men, ranging in ages from 25 to 54, are not employed. Median family income in the United States is 7% lower than it was in 2000. The United States is now in 19th place in the world and falling. There is no way that the majority of American families can keep pace with food inflation as the wages of Americans are now inversely correlated with the rising food prices. This is a prescription for disaster. The most vulnerable to starvation within the present economic climate are the children as an amazing twenty six percent of all children are living below the poverty level. And we certainly cannot ignore the fact that 50 million Americans are on some form of Federal Food Stamps. With these kind of distressing statistics, a significant number of Americans are vulnerable to politically motivated “food blackmail” in these  times of economic distress.
Just how many Americans are vulnerable to “blackmail by starvation”? Nobody can be totally accurate in the estimation, however, the numbers listed in the above paragraphs provide a good starting point from which to estimate the risk.

Disruption to Transportation Would Prove Catastrophic

The critical element which could most impact the number of Americans who would vulnerable to starvation has to do with disruptions in our transportation system. For the purpose of efficiency and to maximize profits “Just in time (JIT)” food deliveries take place at grocery outlets several times per day. Without these JIT deliveries, we would see immediate shortages occurring on day one of any disruption to the delivery of our food to its final destination.
Although, about 10% of all Americans live near substantial food supplies, my previous investigations have revealed the fact that transportation disruption would be life-threatening to most Americans and the effects would be realized within two days. Most Americans are, at most, nine meals away starvation, which is the amount of food that the average person has stored according to FEMA.

Threats to Transportation

There are many threats to transportation, but some of the more dramatic threats are as follows:
1. An EMP attack upon America would immediately and almost completely stop any food delivery. The effects of the resulting food shortages would be felt almost immediately and would be the second leading cause of death in this scenario which would kill an estimated 90% of all Americans within two years (Naval War College estimate).
2. A nuclear attack upon the United States. Such an attack would also contain an EMP component to it which is a significant byproduct of a nuclear attack.
3. The spread of a pandemic, such as Ebola, would created a shortage of food deliveries caused by the fear that people would have about going out in public. One word to the wise, only report to a public facility as a last resort to obtain food.
soylent green 2Undoubtedly, there would be some public centers set up to distribute food. What would happen should the facility (e.g. sports stadium, shopping mall or FEMA camp runs out of food? How would they replenish their supplies? Do you think that once the food ran out, that the prevailing authority would open the gates and allow the hungry masses to run through the streets desperately looking for their next meal? Or, is it more likely that these centers could become what we came to know as soylent green centers in the 1973 classic move by the same name? Is it really so unimaginable?

The Government Threat

And of course, Henry Kissinger was only kidding when he stated the following:
kissinger useless eaters

Although it would not take much to push America over the edge with regard to mass starvation, there is  a precedent that the United States government would use food as a weapon against its own people if necessary.
In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.
In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200 outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with then CIA  Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans.
NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Would this be done inside of America? Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary in this modern day application of eugenics in a scheme that would allow Henry to have his cake and eat it too in that the world would finally be rid of what Henry Kissinger referred to as the “useless eaters!”
Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order 13603 (EO), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended targets are not the LDC’s, but are instead, the American people and after Obama declares martial law, food will undoubtedly be used to subjugate the more resistant regions of our country.


America is already on the edge with regard to a starvation crisis due to economic conditions alone. An economic collapse, or no shortage of any other kind of disaster, would plunge this country into the depths of unimaginable horrors associated with extreme food shortages.
Some people are shocked and refuse to consider what many feel is the unthinkable. When an economic collapse comes to America, coupled with the nation’s extreme food vulnerability, just how desperate will people become?What have you done to prepare?

The dollar is not rising because of strength, it is rising because the entire system is breaking.

In an interview on December 23, 2014 Jim Williesays, " The dollar is going to rise before it crashes. The dollar has surpassed 90.

It’s interesting that the dollar is rising and it’s perceived as evidence of strength. I perceive the opposite . The dollar is not rising because of strength, it is rising because the entire system is breaking.

We are experiencing system failure right now. The whole financial structure…is collapsing. The evidence of that is all this money seeking a dollar-safe haven- because everything is breaking.

We are actually seeing a phenomenon happening that I forecasted a couple of years ago. I said ‘You’ll know we are at the very end of the dollar’s reign when the dollar rises and then rises some more, right before it dies.’ For the last month or so we have been in the end game. This is the end of the dollar. 

The currency reset is for a return to the gold standard and to double the gold price, overnight.
We are going to see the end of the dollar in a few months. This is the end. 
We are approaching an earthquake. How do you forecast that? It’s like the birth pangs of a mother. The time between pains is shortening,  as is the time between major events. A lot of time lines are pointing to the end of February or March. The Chinese are not going to allow the US to violate the global agreements.

They are going to destroy all dollar-based markets. Get out of your bank and stock accounts. Have a minimum amount to handle expense. Buy gold and silver. Which ratio? Buy 80% silver. Because central banks don’t own it and demand is rising.  Central banks DO own gold and industry does not require much gold. Silver is going to rise by as much as 3-5 times as much as gold. 

The US is going to be forced to come up with their own gold currency, and if they can’t come up with the gold in a manner that is legitimately audited independently, then the US is going to fall in the third world. "
"I believe that China now holds controlling interest in the Federal Reserve. Get out of your bank and stock accounts. Have a minimum amount to handle expenses. Buy gold and silver."
Interviewer: Rob Kirby said last year ‘It’s going to die when China doesn’t get their gold.’ What is right or wrong about that statement?’

Jim Willie: "Rob is a good friend and colleague of mine. It’s very, very difficult to encapsulate the entire fraction line of the system, because we are dealing with all financial platforms fracturing simultaneously. What Rob is saying that the breakdown of the entire system is very likely to happen when  gold is re-priced much higher. 

That is going to happen when China can no longer take advantage of this artificially low gold price and capture more and more tonnage of gold. And I tend to agree. But we don’t know whether the rest of the system is going to break down and collapse. Like sovereign bonds. Do you know for sure that in a month from now that the US Treasury complex is going to remain floating? 

This is just a colossal movement: It is for other nations to settle their trade outside the dollar. Russia and China have this big holy grail-energy-deal that’s going to stand 30 years, extending pipelines from Siberia into western China. Just last week there was a deal between Brazil and Uruguay. There’s about 25 Chinese yuan swap facilities where they are not settling in dollars for trade.
My point is, with all this non-dollar settlement, nations are going to conclude that they don’t need to hold their Treasury Bonds anymore and they are going to start dumping them. It’s an event that’s going to force the hand of the Federal Reserve. 

Rob believes the fault line is going to be gold, and he might be right. The ‘Voice’ has told me that we are going to wake up one day (it might happen around the Chinese New Year mid-February) give or take a month or two or three, and find the gold price is twice the price! And the silver price is 3 times the price! 

If this happens, all the Forex derivatives tied to gold blow up! And all the London and Western European banks go into failure. UNLESS…the central banks monetize all those derivatives , which would cause all the major global currencies to lose confidence in the FOREX system led by the dollar.

There has been no gold delivery on a contract since 2012 in COMEX. The Comex tells people that if they push this, they won’t be able  to do any contracts in anything else. Rob Kirby may be right. I think it’s going to be simultaneous breakdown, and I think they are breaking down right now. [20:50]

The Federal Reserve is buying lots of Treasury bonds all over the place. The Chinese asset purchases, for instance -  they own all the ports in Los Angeles. It [Treasury bonds] adds up to about 10 million dollars, so they are relatively tiny in the grand scheme. They put a billion dollars in Wells Fargo and they get to borrow $8-10 billion against it. 

With that clean money they are able to buy $10 billion dollars worth of commercial property. The Chinese, I believe, have lied that they own $1.3 Trillion in Treasury bonds. I think they own substantially less, somewhere near $800 billion.  I think the Saudis own about 1 ¾ trillion and a lot of them are going to get turned into gold. Why would any nation want to hold Treasury bonds when the US is printing them? This is what third world nations do! 

QE is not over. We are forcing the whole world to abandon the dollar. We are never going to get off of QE because we have to create artificial demand for treasuries while the whole world is dumping treasuries. There are no more fair markets. Period. 

The United States has lost control of its country and really followed after the majority of their government debt went into foreign hands. I believe China own US government corporations and now has full claim on all IRS tax income revenue streams. 
I believe the US government debt has already defaulted. Why? Because 3 or 4 months ago Congress announced there’s no more formal debt limit on US government debt. No more debt ceiling! Why? Because we’ve already defaulted! 
The whole world is planning to reset the currencies. The United States is resisting it, even though 140 nations agreed to it, about a year ago. And by defying the agreement of these nations- Signatories to the Global Reset, the United States decided they have a different plan.

They didn’t want a reset of the currency versus gold. ‘We’re going to give you a Ukraine war. ' We are going to sever the umbilical chord between Russia and Europe. So now we have, sadly, the United States acting as a rogue nation, using war to defend the dollar. It’s just not going to work." 
"The currency will be then devalued 30% out of the gate, then in another few months, another 30-40% devaluation." 
Author Note: From listening to other economists, the only thing that will revive the dollar is another round of quantitative easing, QE (money printing) that is even larger than before. If that happens, then we are into another phase, which will prolong the collapse and continue to prop up the dollar.
