The Harvest of Deception
Texas Slim | Author
Published Fall of 2021
To begin with, I come from Texas and my grandfather farmed the land in which I have settled. I reside on the Llano Estacado, the Caprock of the Texas Panhandle, The Desert High Plains, and the end of the breadbasket. My ancestral family survived farming and was near the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. To make it simple I come from Texas dirt and thus I have lived a life of grit and with a form of strength, you find from a pioneering spirit that created me.
Our food supply and nutritional value are being hijacked and you are paying the price for the deception. This is a fact and there is overwhelming proof that the food designed today is nothing close to what our grandparents raised and ate and the food we consumed 20yrs ago is not even close to what we choose to purchase today.
I have been a part of several big tech start companies in Austin, Texas. I have a blue-collar background with a high-tech professional career path. I have spent years studying and understanding behavioral analysis and can disseminate a situation quickly. In short, I have a special set of skills most people do not have access to. I know how to operate farming equipment and I know how to perform data analysis. I know how to embed myself into different industries and can do it anonymously.
These days I have a goal. I am exposing the Industrial Food Complex for what they are and how they manipulate our laws, poison our food and create false commodities to increase higher yields and higher profits for the global corporations of the world. In short, they are providing you a slow death and using your ignorance and your consumption as a tool.
To me, the harvest each year has significant and spiritual meaning. From growing up and helping my grandfather and family store up food for the seasons, to working in the field weeding (hoeing) cotton. To helping raise chickens and cattle as a child and now as an adult. The harvest has meaning. It is our nutrition, it is our process in which we grow and become, the harvest allows us to reap what we have sown. These days we do not even have a clue what we are reaping.
To begin, Bill Gates is the largest farmland owner in the United States. I am going to use him and his investment companies and food companies as a gauge and a form of reference. It does not end with Bill Gates but in ways, it does start with Bill Gates, Monsanto, and the evolution of Genetically Engineering our food supply.
I just dive in.
In July I chose to embed myself into a harvesting company. I am not a harvester by trade; but I have been around it and have participated in many harvests during my life. I wanted to get on the ground and do some research and intelligence gathering on the food supply and I wanted to hear from the farmers and the ranchers. I needed to look them in the eyes and ask them direct questions. What I found was a sense of confusion, fear, and quiet desperation that maybe only I and their family members truly understand or can spot.
My harvest covered the midwest. From Texas to North Dakota back to Texas. We participated in the wheat and canola (rapeseed) harvest. They are now performing the corn forage harvest and I have a chance to jump back in. I met with people who are responsible for feeding you and one thing I was able to determine is that they are extremely good at what they do. They have a deep passion that goes back centuries for some, they love what they do and put everything they have into making sure they produce a good product. I also found out, they have no clue who they are dealing with and the enormous machine behind the Industrial Food Complex that is poised to change food in ways that the world has never seen nor is it prepared for.
This article will explain what I found out on the ground, what has transpired in the last several decades, and what the true intentions are moving forward.
I will touch on wheat and canola, I will also discuss a little bit about our cattle industry and several other commoditized ingredients such as soy, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup.
My intention with this piece is to give a broad outline of the national food supply and the global corporations that decide if you eat or if you starve and control your nutrient supply with the push of a button.
I am not a professional author or writer. I am passionate about #FoodIntelligence. I seek the truth to be able to bring #FoodIntelligence to mothers and children.
My interest peaked when I touched on some research on the water supply in my area. I grew up drinking water from the Ogallala Aquifer, it is one of the biggest aquifers in the country and has been the water source for a lot of the midwest for over 100 years. It is vast and it is extremely important to understand what ownership truly means.
Bill Gates now owns over 245,000 acres of farmland in the United States. This makes him and his investment firm Cascade Investments the largest farmland owner in the country. He has acquired around 24,000 acres of farmland in Nebraska, his second-largest amount of acreage in any given state. Not only does he own the farmland he also owns the water rights.
Bill Gates is not a farmer. He allows and pays farmers to farm the land that he purchases. The farmers plant the crops and do so on speculation of markets and seasonal trends. They also are incentivized by the US government to plant certain crops and by doing so they get to do what they love and what they know.
In 1971 after we went off the gold standard, our government and economic experts began creating the “Debt Economy” . It is the economy that has allowed our country to accomplish many things. From war to untold riches to creating a food industry the world has never seen. We also began creating false commodities. One of these false commodities is Canola.
Many of our seed oils and false commodities that we inject into our food supply and our bodies every couple of hours are genetically modified. Bill Gates and Monsanto have been the global leaders in the Genetic Engineering of seeds and processed foods. More on this later.
Canola is derived from Rapeseed. In 1956, the American FDA banned rapeseed from the human food chain altogether. In the 1970s, labs developed strains of rapeseed with low and, in the American parlance, "generally recognized as safe" levels of erucic acid. They also found ways to treat it and remove the unpalatable bitterness.
Canola oil is one of the most commonly used ingredients in America's processed food. Food that we eat almost every day that was banned for use in baby formula. Canola is known to cause cancer and also catalyzes once it has formed. It also causes unhealthy brain function, heart disease, a multitude of liver problems, hypertension and strokes, stunted growth in children. This is a shortlist of hazards.
Most of these problems are not immediate but are caused by accumulation; meaning if you had canola oil once a month you would probably be okay. For this reason, the FDA can get past feeding Americans this false commodity and defeat the overall health standard. The true issue, it is used in almost every processed food we consume, and most restaurants use it to fry and cook their food. Those who are not conscious about the food they are eating eat it every day, deteriorating their health gradually.
I was able to obtain a report from Monsanto that was compiled in 2003. I was able to follow a pattern for the last 18yrs that has led up to now; and has led up to the nutrition crisis and obesity epidemic we are confronted with currently.
The Monsanto report makes note of the rejection of GE foods from restaurant corps like McDonald’s and Taco Bell. They rejected the use of them due to public rejection and health concerns. Since then, they have led the embedding of such ingredients and commodities as GE canola, sugar, and cornstarch into our food supply. All heavily processed foods, which are all fast food and most of the food being offered in your local supermarket, and many restaurants are going to contain GMOs.
McDonald’s uses GE canola oil to fry all of its food, so do most other corporations. Again, a minimum of 90% of a food product that can be GE, is. This means American canola, soy, sugar, and wheat are at least 90% GE. The top 5 most common ingredients in processed foods are all salts, the next two, dextrose and corn syrup, are the most used in food and beverages. Both are derived from corn that is GE. Every single American alive eats GMOs without their knowledge every day. It is in everything we eat.
How much of this do Americans eat? A study done by researchers at the University of São Paulo and Tufts University found that 57.9% of an American’s calorie intake came from “ultra-processed” foods. Ultra-processed foods are GE and full of preservatives. It is disturbing to know that 90% of added sugars are ultra-processed and therefore GE. Added sugars are in almost all commercial products and should be avoided. Ask yourself how many processed foods you eat in a week. This means anything that comes in a package, a can, or a bottle. Then ask yourself how often you eat out a week. You probably eat more GMOs than you would think, don’t you? Although innocent at heart, genetically modified food is horrible for human health and harmful to the body. It is also dangerously invasive and irreversible, with known long-term effects.

Why are companies allowed to use these products, even though it has been proven to be harmful to humans? Companies are utilizing canolas cost-effectiveness and high-profit margins and have no regard for the consumers. Or maybe there is something worse going on behind closed doors. Think about it like this: if there are people like myself, who are aware of the dangers of canola oil and all GMOs, the dangers of sugars and other foods that are bad for the human diet, government food scientists know. And they have known for a while. Why then do they allow us to continue to consume this poison day in and day out?
There is no one clear answer but there are many patterns that you can track and identify. One pattern is the current manipulation of the food supply and the public understanding. We are being told right now that there is a beef shortage. What does this truly mean? My research and conversations with the ranchers can be summed up like this. There are plenty of cattle. We do not have a beef shortage, we have a manipulation of the processing of the cattle. There are currently 4 major processing companies in the US that ranchers sell their cattle to for processing. JBS, Tyson, National Beef and Cargill. Each one of these global corporations has powerful lobbyists and have very close ties to our government. They are also incentivized by our government to follow certain procedures and processes. The processors are now complaining of a supply chain issue. This is probably correct. Is this the true root of the issue? Of course not. Since the world was shut down we have had labor shortages, supply chain issues to name a few. In the past, ranchers were able to sell more cattle. Currently, the processors are buying fewer cattle, thus not supplying the food chain as much beef, chicken, and pork as we have had access to in the past. This is by design. They can increase their profits by increasing the price and thus pass this on to the consumer.
Now let’s go back to Bill Gates. He owns the most farmland in the US. He also owns and is heavily invested in several GMO food companies and synthetic meat endeavors which include: Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat, Memphis Meats, and Hampton Creek Foods.
Each one of these companies is in talks with the 4 processing companies that I listed above. They are also working with the government to design new “dietary standards'' for food supply and consumption. Their messaging and signaling for why? Is, of course, to fight climate change. In other words, the same processors that have been partners with the cattlemen for the last 100 yrs are now part of the plan to drive the cattleman out of business, replace the animal protein you eat with synthetic, GE, GMO plant protein that has been proven to cause serious health issues.
Let us revisit the false commodity of Canola. When I was on harvest I found a pattern that has been happening for the past 3yrs. Each year less wheat is being grown and more Canola is being planted. Wheat prices are consistently down, Canola is consistently providing higher profits to the farmers. In some form or fashion, most Americans consume more canola and soy than any other false GMO commodity.
As I spoke to the farmers I was able to see and understand the crisis they are in. They want to plant the 100yr old seeds that have been cultivated and reused for generations. They are in this to plant wheat. They never had the intention of planting Canola. This was pushed onto them by our Agricultural department and the global seed corporations. What happens to them if they do not plant Canola? They do not survive. Some had tears in their eyes. Their stature was somewhat slumped, their voices not as stern, a quiet desperation can be seen in their spirit. They are scared. This land that they own was given to them by their grandparents. If they falter they lose the land and guess who buys it. Bill Gates and the Industrial Food Complex mechanism. Billionaires and corporations hide with shell companies. Cascade Investments is one of Bill Gates’s companies that he uses to buy and hide his purchases and his corporate dealings. He owns several companies that are hard to track and identify just because he can use the global corporate system that has a lobbying arm that has close ties to all of our lawmakers.
The Artificial Food Supply of AmericaIt is fairly simple to find that the majority of the health epidemic that has fallen upon the US is caused by the food that we eat. Most of what Americans eat is genetically modified, or GM. There are many names for the engineered food, GE (genetically engineered), GMO (genetically modified organism), BT (biotech). Although it has many names, it has only one motive: to destroy the health of those who eat it. Our food is engineered to meet our desires, causing not only food addiction, but Americans to become overweight, lazy, and increasingly ignorant. Food is a gift that gives us life, giving our body the nutrients and energy it needs to survive. All of the food we eat comes from the earth. When you gift your body with food that is replenishing and nutritional, it rewards you. When you consume food that is not of this earth but is made in a lab it resents you. Eating food that is pumped with chemicals to make it bigger, “tastier”(sweeter), and more aesthetically appealing is unnatural, and your body does not respond well. It does not have a defense mechanism to process toxic chemicals. Most toxic chemicals if they are not able to be broken down are stored as fat cells. We have researched the analysis of the Monsanto company in 2003 and have organized and cross-referenced with research and analysis to form our findings on the use of genetically enhanced foods starting back then and how they are being used now and will be used in the future.
Toxicity is the first and main concern of GE foods for consumers. The FDA has a complicated and seemingly non-attentive relationship with GMOs and always has. On their website, they claim that all GE foods on the market are safe for human consumption, but there are many holes in testing and regulation of GMO foods, along with many animal studies that claim otherwise(1). A study done in the UK by Drs Stanley Awen and Arpad Pusztai concluded that rats fed GM potatoes were directly linked to issues with the rats’ gastrointestinal tract caused by transgene found in the GM potato. In a peer review of the study, Robert Horton tells of the Royal Society, among other institutes, called for further research to be done ‘the Royal Society's statement on GM plants recommended that “any further increase in the number of antibiotic-resistant micro-organisms resulting from transfer antibiotic-resistance markers from GM food should be avoided”. Multiple studies are linking GE foods to allergies, antibiotic resistance, and immunosuppression as well(2). Along with all the negative effects of GMOs, they carry friends along with them: herbicides.
Herbicides are used in the production of GE foods. They eliminate insects and weeds, ridding the crop of them producing a faster, easier, and more cost-efficient crop yield. Monsanto’s “Roundup” is the most popular of them all, partly because the company creates seeds that are specifically designed with immunity to the herbicide. This means if you were to use roundup on regular plants, they would die. Roundup contains the carcinogens oxidized petroleum residues, arsenic, and glyphosate(3). Although the plants are immune to the herbicide, humans are not. The Active ingredient glyphosate is found in most of the foods we eat, clothing, and non-organic cotton products like tampons, rain,, and air samples, and even drinking water. The carcinogens have been linked to multiple cancers, intestine and kidney dysfunction, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, gastrointestinal tract dysfunction, and many other diseases. You can see the full list of data here. There are many respected studies done by Environmental Sciences Europe proving these links, and studies by Monsanto attempting to disprove them. You can read their counter experiments here. The most important effect of GMOs on human health is their links to obesity. Researchers found that rats fed GE corn was growing a minimum of 10% more fat, and significantly hungrier than the control group. Further study yielded the same results but the rats were fed fish that were fed with GE corn and non-GE corn. The link between GMOs and obesity is easily observed by looking at the obesity rate in America vs countries that do not use GMOs. In 2021, 45% of Americans are obese, and 75% of Americans are overweight. The numbers are almost as big as the people. In France where GMO cultivation is banned, the obesity rate is 10% with only 40% overweight. Iceland, second to the US in obesity rate, who does not use GMOs has an obesity rate of 26%. America almost has a 20% lead in the rate of obesity.
In 2003, the risk analysis reports that the US and Argentina accounted for 90% of the GE crops grown in the world, with China, Canada, South Africa, and Australia picking up the other 10 percent(1). All other countries at the time had banned growth and/or importation of GE products because of consumer market rejection, fear of health risks, and unwanted cross-contamination. Currently, the US is responsible for roughly 40% of the world's GE food product output(2). Now 29 countries contribute to the cultivation of GE food products, most of the remaining have partial or total bans of GMO products(3). You can find a complete list here. Most countries still reject the use of GMOs or are very particular about the products they import. Almost all countries that import GE foods do not import seeds of any kind, only whole products like flour or oil.
This either shows the advancement of biotechnology to aid developing countries for a stronger food supply or a strong influence of biotech companies on GMO tech and sales. Considering all of the studies published against GE foods, the short amount of time we have had to study GMOs, the amount of rejection of GMOs in society and other countries, issues with health and wellness, and the shadiness of the FDA and its regulations of the food, it appears that companies are taking advantage of the cost-effectiveness of the product and overlooking the health of the consumers.
Inevitable Cross-Contamination, Pg. 10 In the risk analysis, listed as the biggest concern for buyers of the plant product is cross-contamination, because once you start using GE seeds, the DNA will be shared with all-natural seeds and it will be taken over. Cross-contamination of GE plants with natural plants is irreversible. This also means if a seed falls in the wrong silo, or falls off a truck and is blown into a field, it can compromise an entire crop in a few years, completely unknown to the farmer. Since the FDA does not require farms that claim to be organic to test their crop for contamination, even foods that claim to be non-GMO and organic have the potential to contain GMOs. For this reason, most countries that have import bans on GMOs have a total ban on imports from that country of that specific crop, non-GMO or not so their crop will not be infected(22).
Even if GMOs promote bodily health and wellness, which they do not, the fact that introducing GMOs can irreversibly contaminate a crop is a serious matter. Preserving the natural state of the earth and the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables is important. Food has been around longer than we have. Ancient in its ways, it is the reason humanity, and life in general still exists. To risk the compromise of the ancient technology of food for engineered crops that have only been approved for human consumption for a little over 20 years is foolish. There could be long-term effects that significantly harm the earth or its inhabitants that cannot be reversed, leaving us in an extremely

There has been no law requiring labeling in the US until 2022. On July 29, 2016, President Obama signed the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, requiring companies to disclose GMO ingredients to their customers with a label on the packaging. This law will go into effect in 2022, meaning up to this point in history, no labeling requirements for GE foods existed. Although this is a great step in BT consumer relationship health, there are many problems with disclosure transparency of ingredients, and the label.
The following is a list of GMOs that do not have to be labeled:
• Food products containing less than 5% GMOs
• Foods derived from animals, such as eggs, meat,and milk
• Refined ingredients like oils and sugars
• Food served in a restaurant
• Foods manufactured and sold by very small manufacturers (local shops, etc.)
• Any non-food products
• (Information collected from watchusgrow.org)
This is not transparent in many regards. Sugars and oils are of the greatest concern because they provide the biggest health risks and are in cross-referenced most foods. You will still be eating GMO sugars and oils without your knowledge under this law. Even after the law is passed, you will also not be aware of any GMOs being used at restaurants and small businesses. If you are concerned with or have allergies related to GMOs you will not be aware of where it’s used.The new labeling law is also lacking transparency of GMO ingredients. The FDA’s logo for GE foods will be easy to read on packaging, our concern is the acceptance of the Smart Label. This allows companies to place a QR code rather than the GE label that links you to a company website where they can reveal all of the ingredients in the product, and whether or not it has GE products in it. I understand the point of this analysis is to provide concrete data, but let us use our heads for a moment and guess how many Americans (that have access to a QR scanner and internet) are going to take the time to scan and inspect the products they buy. Further, you must still be aware of the ingredients that are exempt from the label requirement. In a series of polls ranging from 2008 to 2015, they found up to 96% (median percentage of 93.5) of Americans support mandatory labeling of GE foods. A 6% increase since 2003 to an already high number of Americans wanting GMO transparency.
Domestic Markets and the Food Cartel
The food cartel exercises an iron hand over the domestic agricultural economies of nations, especially those that comprise the four export source regions of the food cartel. This is exercised through the processing industries: If one controls the processing industries, one controls domestic trade.
Except for use as animal feed, corn, wheat and soybean cannot be eaten in their unrefined form. The grain or soybean must be processed. The same is true for meat, which must be slaughtered and before it is fit for human consumption.
This is where the processing/milling industries, in the case of grains and soybeans, and the packing/slaughtering houses, in the case of, meat come in. Taking America as the test case to make the case generally, one can see the cartel’s domination is about 90% of milling capacity.
In 1979, the top four millers controlled 41% of the industry. Today, they control 92%! Finally, four of the six leading grain cartel companies own 64% of America’s grain elevator storage capacity. However, this figure is deceptive. Many of the grain elevators are in local areas, where there is a substantial degree of individual or cooperative ownership.When one gets to regional grain elevators, the grain cartel’s ownership percentage is much higher. And at ports, where grain is transshipped, the four-grain rain cartels own 89% of all grain facilities. A farmer must sell his grain either to a grain elevator or, in the rarer case where he can afford transport, to a grain miller.In either case, it is the grain Cartel Company to which he must sell. By this process, the grain cartel sets the price to the farmer – at the lowest levels possible.
Much of their workings are shrouded in mystery because they release little information to the public. People who have attempted to write books about the grain companies have spent years without getting a single interview from any of the reigning grain company families.Unlike many American companies, where the founding family has long since departed the scene, such as in the case of Morgan bank or Chrysler Corp., the grain cartel companies are run by the same families that have run them for centuries. The inter-married MacMillan and Cargill families run Cargill; the Fribourg family runs Continental; the Louis Dreyfus family runs Louis Dreyfus; the André family runs A, and the Hirsch and Born families run Bunge and Born.While evading taxes and inspection, Cargill also uses its network to move large shipments of goods anywhere on the globe, on split-second notice. It has an in-house intelligence service that matches the CIA’s: It uses global communication satellites, weather-sensing satellites, a database that utilizes 7,000 primary sources of intelligence, several hundred field offices, etc.
Cargill is representative of all of the grain companies, and a brief examination of it gives insight into all the others. Cargill, which had $101 billion in annual sales in 2014, has a dominant position in many aspects of the world food trade. It is the world’s and the United States number-one grain exporter and has a market share of 25-30% in each of several commodities.It is the world’s number-one cotton trader; the number-one U.S. owner of grain elevators (340); the number-one U.S. manufacturer of corn-based, high-protein animal feeds (through subsidiary Nutrena Mills); the number-two U.S. wet corn miller and U.S. soybean crusher; the number-two Argentine grain exporter (10% of the market); the number-three U.S. flour miller (18% of the market), U.S. meatpacker (18% of the market), U.S. pork packer/slaughterer, and U.S. commercial animal feeder; the number-three French grain exporter (15-18% of the market); and the number-six U.S. turkey producer.It also has a fleet of 420 barges, 11 towboats, 2 huge vessels that sail the Great Lakes, 12 ocean-going ships, 2,000 railroad hopper cars, and 2,000 tank cars. Cargill has been able to place its people in top posts around the world.
Today, Cargill Company is privately owned and run by the MacMillan family. The MacMillan family’s collective wealth sits at $15.1 billion.The food cartel continues to consolidate its worldwide control in the face of the oncoming financial disintegration. In the past 30 years, the food cartel has bought up many milling-processing plants and bakeries throughout the former Soviet Union and East bloc, bringing these nations under tight food control.The food cartel has also built up its control, in the food distribution industries, through such combines as Philip Morris, Grand Metropolitan-Pillsbury, and KKR-RJR-Nabisco-Borden; i.e. Philip Morris, which owns Kraft Foods, General Foods (Post cereals), the Miller Brewing Company, and a host of other brand names.The food cartel’s power must be broken.
But the Anglo-Dutch-Swiss-American cartel is playing for high stakes—the ability to constrain the supply of raw materials, and above all, food, to turn back the clock of history, and reduce mankind from the 7 billion population it currently enjoys’ to the state of a few hundred million semi-literate souls scratching out a bare existence. That assault cannot be fought timidly.The full truth about the food cartel must be known. Alongside the hyper-speculation in food and related commodities that must be stopped urgently, there is a related feature of the food crisis to be eliminated: the now-extreme globalization of the food chain.
This has come about under the control of a select few commodities and logistics cartels, operating above and against national governments and the interests of their populations. Nations have been forced into dependence on food from hundreds and thousands of miles away; now it isn’t there to be had.Governments and financiers today, prominently including the Federal Reserve chairman, are crises withThe notorious for saying that the current spike in food prices and the growing shortfalls are simply a result of “increased demand,” i.e., “market forces.”They are maliciously lying.What “markets”? The way it works is that these cartel companies’ activities and practices are what is meant when “the markets” are cited.The companies are, in fact, the hard-product wing of the financial interests; best called the neo-British Empire, and since the late 1940s, joined by the American faction.****
Who Controls the World’s Food Supply?
When the United States was founded in the 1700s, and when Thomas Jefferson served as President of the United States, about 90% of the U.S. population was employed in agriculture.
By the time of the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln served as President of the United States, about 50% of the population was employed in agriculture.
After the industrial boom, brought about by World War II, the percentage of those employed in agriculture started dropping significantly.
Today, less than 1% of our population is employed in agriculture and most of the food sold in the U.S., and even around the world, is controlled by just a handful of companies.
At the bottom of the food chain, of course, are the seeds. No seeds, no food. This is where the most consolidation has occurred in the past few years: The top 10 seed companies account for $14,785 million – or two-thirds (67%) of the global proprietary seed market.
The world’s largest seed company, Monsanto, accounts for almost one-quarter (23%) of the global proprietary seed market.
The top 3 companies (Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta) together account for 47% of the worldwide proprietary seed market.
The top 3 seed companies control 65% of the proprietary maize (corn) seed market worldwide, and over half of the proprietary soybean seed market. (More at GMWatch.org)
The control of food for use as a weapon is an ancient practice. The House of Windsor inherited certain routes and infrastructure.
One finds the practice in ancient Babylon/Mesopotamia 4,000 years ago. In Greece, the cults of Apollo, Demeter, and Rhea-Cybele often controlled the shipment of grain and other food, through the temples. In Imperial Rome, the control of grain became the basis of the empire.
Rome was the center. Conquered outlying colonies in Gaul, Brittany, Spain, Sicily, Egypt, North Africa, and the Mediterranean littoral had to ship grain to the noble Roman families, as taxes and tribute. Often the grain tax was greater than the land could bear, and areas of North Africa, for instance, were turned into dust bowls. The evil city-state of Venice took over grain routes, particularly after the Fourth Crusade (1202-04). The main Venetian thirteenth-century trading routes had their eastern termini in Constantinople, the ports of the Oltremare (which were the lands of the crusading States), and Alexandria, Egypt.
Goods from these ports were shipped to Venice, and from there made their way up the Po Valley to markets in Lombardy, or over the Alpine passes to the Rhône and into France. Eventually, Venetian trade extended to the Mongol empire in the East. By the fifteenth century, although Venice was still very much a merchant empire, it had franchised some of its grain and other trade to the powerful Burgundian duchy, whose effective headquarters was Antwerp.
This empire, encompassing parts of France, extended from Amsterdam and Belgium to much of present-day Switzerland. From this Venetian-Lombard-Burgundian nexus, each of the food cartel’s six leading grain companies was either founded or inherited a substantial part of its operations today.
By the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the British Levant and East India companies had absorbed many of these Venetian operations. In the nineteenth century, the London-based Baltic Mercantile and Shipping Exchange became the world’s leading instrument for contracting for and shipping grain.
Ten to 12 pivotal companies, assisted by another 3 dozen, run the world’s food supply. They are the key components of the Anglo-Dutch-Swiss-American cartel, which is grouped around the 2 families.
Led by the six leading grain companies – this food and raw materials cartel has complete domination over the world’s cereals and grains supplies, from wheat to oats and corn, from barley to sorghum and rye. But it also controls meat, dairy, edible oils and fats, fruits and vegetables, sugar, and all forms of spices.
Each year tens of millions die from the most elementary lack of their daily bread. This is the result of the work of the BAC cartel. And, as the ongoing financial collapse wipes out bloated speculative financial paper, the oligarchy has moved into hoarding, increasing its food and raw materials holdings. It is prepared to apply a tourniquet to food production and export supplies, not only to poor nations but to advanced sector nations as well.
Today, food warfare is firmly under the control of London and New York. Today’s food companies were created by having had a section of this ancient set of Mesopotamian-Roman-Venetian-British food networks and infrastructure carved out for them.
The oligarchy has built up a single, integrated raw materials cartel, with three divisions – energy, raw materials, and increasingly scarce food supplies.
Consolidation of The World Food Supply
I am now going to insert an excerpt from Health Impact News. They have gathered and reported on several key factors that need to be understood.
Those who know anything about the principles of economics know that the world is on a crash course to a total collapse of the financial system.
As part of the Great Reset, we see plenty of evidence of this impending crash by simply watching the world’s top billionaires move at a great speed to sell off significant amounts of their stock holdings before the Big Crash comes.
With the move towards a cashless society and a new digital currency on the horizon, where are these billionaires putting their cash as they liquidate major portions of their assets?
"A lot of it is going into agricultural land, a major clue as to what is on the horizon."
As I pointed out earlier Bill Gates is now the largest owner of farmland in the United States, while fellow billionaire Ted Turner owns 2.2 million acres of ranches and forests, and Jeff Bezos owns 420,000 acres. Source
Colin Todhunter published an article on Global Research highlighting the upcoming UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) titled “Mobilising Against the Corporate Hijack of Agriculture and the UN Food Systems Summit” which gives us a glimpse of what they are planning for the future.
The UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), including a ‘pre-summit, will take place in September 2021 in New York. The Italian government is hosted the pre-summit in Rome from 26–28 July.
The UNFSS claims it aims to deliver the latest evidence-based, scientific approaches from around the world, launch a set of fresh commitments through coalitions of action, and mobilize new financing and partnerships.
Despite claims of being a ‘people’s summit’ and a ‘solutions’ summit, the UNFSS is facilitating greater corporate concentration, unsustainable globalized value chains, and agribusiness leverage over public institutions.
As a result, more than 300 global organizations of small-scale food producers, researchers, and indigenous peoples will gather online from 25-28 July to mobilize against the pre-summit.
The Civil Society and Indigenous Peoples’ Mechanism (CSM) for relations with the United Nations Committee on World Food Security are working to eradicate food insecurity and malnutrition.
According to the CMS, the UNFSS – founded on a partnership between the UN and the World Economic Forum (WEF) – is disproportionately influenced by corporate actors, lacks transparency and accountability, and diverts energy and financial resources away from the real solutions needed to tackle the multiple hunger, climate and health crises.
According to the CMS, those being granted a pivotal role at the UNFSS support industrial food systems that promote ultra-processed foods, deforestation, industrial livestock production, intensive pesticide use, and commodity crop monocultures, all of which cause soil deterioration, water contamination, and irreversible impacts on biodiversity and human health.
Those who contribute most to world food security, smallholder producers, are the most threatened and affected by the corporate concentration of land, seeds, natural and financial resources, and the related privatization of the commons and public goods.
And these processes are accelerating: the high-tech/data conglomerates, including Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, and Google, have joined traditional agribusiness giants in a quest to impose a one size fits all type of agriculture and food production on the world.
Digitalization, artificial intelligence, and other technologies are serving to promote a new wave of resource grabbing and the restructuring of food systems towards a total concentration of power.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is also heavily involved, whether through buying up huge tracts of farmland, funding and promoting a much-heralded (but failed) ‘green revolution’ for Africa, pushing biosynthetic food and new genetic engineering technologies, or more generally facilitating the aims of the mega agrifood corporations.
One question I always receive after I outline and explain what is happening and what can be expected moving forward. Is “what can we do?” I have one simple answer that I believe in, I simply say “Start living as your grandparents did.” I have something to reflect on. All of my grandparents were strong pioneering people, they survived the dust bowl, gold confiscation, 2 world wars, the great depression. With all of the social and global crises they flourished. Not with cash riches but with true wealth. The wealth they obtained was they were able to live off of the land and they were able to feed their families with a generational set of skills that were passed on to them by our ancestors.
One of my grandfathers came to the Texas panhandle in a covered wagon in the late 1800s. Mind you this part of Texas was still wild and untamed. The Texas panhandle went through a transition phase from the 1830s to the late 1870s. This time period included wars, independence, merging with the union and the great Comanche wars that mostly took place in the Texas panhandle and the last great battle was in a place called Palo Duro Canyon. The second-largest canyon in the US.
I tell you this because I want you to understand that farming and ranching is a tough life. It takes strength and a spirit that most everyone does not have nor do they quite understand. As the years have gone by, the work and the determination of my grandparents and my earlier ancestors are still there in the modern-day farmer and rancher. Yes, we have modern equipment and luxuries but I know no tougher man than a cornfed farmboy or the true grit of a Texas Cowboy.
By saying this they are 100% defenseless against the massive power and system that they are a slave to. Their strength and grit have to evolve into a form of information warfare. This information needs to be understood and this crisis we are about to experience needs intentional focus and agency.
It is time for you the reader to take a step back, look at the environment you are living in and re-evaluate your daily consumption decisions. This is going to take some education and some work but if you start making just a few changes to your daily consumption you will start creating an awareness that starts to empower you. Your conversations will begin to change and evolve into more informative discussions. You will start putting art into the act of food growth and preparation. This is #FoodIntelligence.I want to share a blog that I wrote earlier this year. I was able to put this together from quotes out of St. Augustine’s book City of God. If you are not familiar with his writings this particular part of his book is about the fall of Rome. I then was able to incorporate my theory of what is happening in today’s modern world.
Let The Poor Court The Rich
”WHAT GAME THEORY CHARACTER HAVE YOU BECOME?”
Your non-fitness standards (mind, body, spirit) in life have become our new fitness standards.
In game theory, this would be called our new “survival mechanism.”
It has a high time preference form of living. Meaning, more consumption, random decision-making, false hope on institutional thought will deliver a mediocre lifestyle and shorter life span.
Low-time preference forms of living. Meaning, less consumption, intentional decision-making, longer life span is going to require a new form of critical thinking that most people cannot do or do not realize they need to develop.
“Let the poor court the rich for a living; and that under their protection they may enjoy a sluggish tranquility; and let the rich abuse the poor as their dependents, to minister to their pride. Let the people applaud not those who protect their interest, but those who provide them with pleasure.” Our society today is living in a game that they did not realize had been designed and it started several years ago. Game theory and evolution was written about by John Maynard Smith in 1982.
In his book, the theory of games, first developed to analyze economic behavior, is modified so that it can be applied to evolving populations. His concept of an evolutionarily stable strategy is relevant whenever the best thing for an animal or plant to do depends on what others are doing. The theory leads to testable predictions about the evolution of behavior, sex and genetic systems, and growth and life history patterns. His book contains a full account of the theory, and the data relevant to it. (Evolution and the Theory of Games)
“Let the people applaud not those who protect their interest, but those who provide them with pleasure. Let no severe duty be commanded , no impurity forbidden.”
As we create data with every step we take we are being profiled in a way that is not fully understood and has never been achieved before. Much of the data mining and analysis that is being done on a personal level, which in turn creates your online profile, which leads to your purchasing and behavioral identity is a new frontier. It is believed that some of the AI algorithms being used are front-running any decision-making abilities of the engineers and scientists that created them. The smart grid you are participating in has created a cloud around you.
We are going to talk about one aspect of this smart grid, our food consumption in the United States. It is apparent and often censored that we are in the worst health crisis the world has ever seen and it has many afflictions. These would include obesity, diabetes, heart disease to name a few. Each one of these health issues is created by food consumption purchased from the Global Industrial Food Complex.
Our food that we are consuming is killing us and it is being done with world-class marketing and the power of the fiat dollar with expert data mining and analysis. Our government and global corporations and investment firms are designing this form of game theory. YOU are being profiled by your food consumption and your desire to search for taste, convenience, and comfort. You are a game character.
“Let kings estimate their prosperity, not by the righteousness, but by the servility of their subjects. Let the provinces stand loyal to the kings, not as moral guides, but as lords of their possessions and purveyors of their pleasures; not with a hearty reverence, but a crooked and servile fear.”As we try to survive, the new survival guide relies on mass consumption of processed and nutrient weak food, a pharmaceutical industry that keeps designing and pumping out medicines and pills that create dependency and addiction rather than a cure that leads to better health. With this high time preference form of living, our health industry has become reactive rather than proactive. We are continuously placing band-aids on our appetites and our physical, emotional, and mental health.
Our food laws and regulations are designed to be deceptive and misleading. As we yearn to rise above the madness of the world we become a realm of pleasure that has been engineered in a way that has created a cloud and a shield of self-indulgence and sabotage.
“Let the laws take cognizance rather of the injury done to another man’s property, than of that done to one's own person. If a man be a nuisance to his neighbor, or injure his property, family, or person, let him be actionable; but in his own affairs let everyone with impunity do what he will in company with his own family, and with those who willingly join him.”
As we have moved into the digital and virtual world we have willingly inserted a form of surveillance into our personal property. We have not injected it but we carry it everywhere. It’s the first item that we touch in the morning and the last thought before we go to bed. We take it with us to the bathroom and the dinner table. We can even purchase one that can be used while we are submerged in water. Our smartphones are transmitting who we are every second of every day. It creates a profile about us that knows us better than we know ourselves. It is a pleasure addiction that delivers mass amounts of emotions, thoughts, and actionable behaviors. Most of them were designed in an engineering lab in Silicon Valley, Chinese Labs, and the United States Intelligence apparatus. Not only do we have these pocket trackers, but also we have designed our homes to be broadcast networks of our personal lives. From IoT to IoB, 5G, and every digital voice assistant you could ever want. This type of lifestyle has allowed us to drown out our suffering and gives us a false sense of empowerment and luxury. Once again, all in the name of convenience and comfort. What a wonderful web that keeps us secure and warm and above all well fed in our world where famine kills millions each year because of our centralized, corporate, and government greed.
“Let there be a plentiful supply of public prostitutes for everyone who wishes to use them, but especially for those who are too poor to keep one for their private use. Let there be erected houses of the largest and most ornate description; in these let there be provided the most sumptuous banquets, where every one who pleases may, by day or night, play, drink, vomit, dissipate. Let there be everywhere heard the rustling of dancers, the loud, immodest laughter of the theatre; let a succession of the most cruel and the most voluptuous pleasures maintainan perpetual excitement. ”
But we now as a society are not allowed to say anything. We are told to follow along and do not disrespect or shame people that are being misled by this system. There is no angle to use to try to inform others that there is an issue. You are a game character in a game you didn’t choose to play but were snatched out of your current reality and formulated to be led down a path in which has created a false reality.
There is no question that there is an issue. We are still navigating through the Covid narrative and we are taking a deep breath for the most part. This isn’t over, this is going to continue in ways that you do not realize. There is a way to approach all of this. It is called critical thinking and formulating a decentralized thought process. It is time to take a step back and to find your truth. It is time to get agitated for the right reasons. It is time to fight for your mind and your body and your eternal spirit. mTm Initiative was created to battle this form of evil and modern-day slavery. We are moving forward in a way most people can’t understand. I can say this much, we are laying a foundation of truth and providing a new beacon of light. We are decentralized and we have an amazing set of tools and mindsets. There is a new talent stack and brain trust and we are incubating a new way to live in freedom, integrity, and sovereignty. Take a look inside and dive a little deeper if you care to know more
“Let them be worshipped as they wish; let them demand whatever games they please, from or with their own worshippers; only let them secure that such felicity be not imperiled by foe, plague, or disaster of any kind.
To seek truth requires one to ask the right questions. Those void of truth never ask about anything because their ego and arrogance prevent them from doing so. If the mind is in the way the heart will not see anything. Strategy, Future Analysis, and Inner Engineering should be your new game theory.
As I finish this first article up. There is a conference being held today. 09/17/21. I wanted to wait and release our research and intelligence after it had taken place.
Its key marketing signal is “Working towards a safe future global food system.” Make no mistake about it. This has nothing to do with your health but a form of mal-nutrition that has been being engineered for decades. As our world is going into a paradigm shift of awareness, fear and confusion on many levels the biggest form of deception is within the harvest of the seeds that sustain our existence on this planet. They are not the same seeds as your ancestors cultivated and they are not being used for the same purpose. In truth be told they have become a mechanism of addiction and dependency. Our health crisis proves this with zero doubts. The food is not the product anymore. You are!
The food cartels in line with other global corporations have a plan and they are moving forward at lightning speed. It is called Stakeholder Capitalism which in turn will be designing Human Capital Bond Markets. Once these markets have been created they will then engineer new Hedge Funds and you will be placed into a certain hedge fund based on your consumption of food and daily content. You will be known better by the food cartel then you actually know yourself. You are a willing participant in this chess game. It is time you quit playing checkers and learn how to play chess as well.
I do not write any of this from a viewpoint of judgement. All of my work and the intelligence research of my team comes from a foundation of truth and compassion. I have people in my own family who suffer from diabetes, obesity, hypertension to name a few. I myself live a very intentional life of awareness, education and have a sense of agency that allows me to make informed decisions and I place my consumption in a very protective box that no one is allowed to infiltrate. I protect it with my life because I know it is a matter of life and death. My research in this area was not intentional though. I somewhat fell into it. The deeper I began to understand the macro picture the more I wanted to know and figure out. It is now my responsibility to spread the word. I understand what cognitive dissonance is. Do not let it destroy your mind, body and spirit anymore. Be ok with living in truth. It will empower you and allow you to become or maintain the person God intended you to be.
Ok, now what to do?
Eliminate Canola, vegetable, and seed oils out of your diet. Then monitor your consumption of soy and GMO-based foods.
Cut down on your sugar intake as much as possible and completely erase high fructose corn syrup out of your life.
Increase the consumption of animal protein and turn the food pyramid upside down.
Personally I do an intermittent fast each day. My usual average consistency is 18/6. Meaning I have a 6 hour window that I stack my nutrition. The other 18 hours are spent working, drinking water, exercising and other lifestyle choices that keep me strong and growing. I cook with a cast iron skillet and every meal takes less than 15 minutes and is far better than any restaurant I used to frequent. Food Intelligence is not complicated, it is quite easy, especially after you begin to understand the engineering and marketing behind the Industrial Food Complex and it’s intentions.
This first report was a broad and general outline to give you an understanding of the history, the current actions taking place, and where our food is going. Do not allow them to steal the nutrients out of your life nor your children’s. Our next report will be more in debt to the current actions taking place with the global food summits, their plans and the introduction of nano and biometric technology that is and will be used on both your food and water supply. I will explain it in a way that will give you more clarity on how the system works and how they plan to leverage the publics ignorance against them.
“Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control people. Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” Henry Kissinger
It starts with the seeds and these remarks were made during the time the United States went off of the gold standard in 1971. Now ask yourself. Who controls you?Start understanding what centralization is and how decentralizing your life is your best move. Find ways to quit being dependent on the system that wants you obese, lazy, and stupid.
