We have seen in the recent few years that our government seems determined to destroy the ability of the American people to provide for themselves in any way. They are putting rules into effect that will drive farmers into bankruptcy and cause the land itself to be laid fallow and unable to produce. Whether it is farmers in the midwest, the south, the west, anywhere, there are new rules and regulations coming every week, if not everyday. It is impossible to keep track of all of them and if you fail to do so, your product is confiscated and destroyed, often before you even get a chance to take your case before the American people in our jurisprudence system or before a single judge. In our governments process you are guilty until you prove your innocence but even if you are able to do so, you have lost because your property and often your future have been destroyed along with your reputation.This is being done often out of the view of the American people and without the media even bothering to report it. What is the goal? We can only speculate on some of it but we know that this administration is determined to implement Agenda 21. This is being done without the approval of Congress and without the agreement of the American people. If you don't know what Agenda 21 is, I am including a video at the bottom that will help to educate you. Our country is being stolen away from us and given to foreign nationals and our ability to provide essentials for our future, such as food, energy and even medicines, is being destroyed by one regulation at a time. Below I have snippets of several articles going back for several month. It is well worth reading these and putting the facts into perspective. Each incidence is bad enough on it's own but when you put them together and look at the results you will find a frightening picture of how far they have already gone. Please take the time to read the articles!
A Huge Political Storm is Stirring Over Farm Dust
Boogai: See U.S. Rep. Noem’s bill to protect farmers from EPA’s new assault, posted under Rep. Watch. If EPA can’t halt their access to water, it wants to put them out of business for fuels stored on the farm, spilled milk (now a toxic substance) or now – farm dust. This is equivalent to EPA’s recent determination that C02 being determined a toxic substance now. Wake up neighbors, friends and family.
What is the doom of America? To borrow a mystical metaphor from an old Bob Dylan song, “The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.” And what might that mighty answer be? Farm dust, everyday rural American farm dust.
That’s crazy. How can farm dust determine the destiny of this great nation? Easy: outlaw farm dust. Of course, there’s no way to really stop farm dust, what with all those plowed fields, grazing lands, harvesters, roundups, processing plants, pickup trucks on unpaved roads, all that dirt — and lots of wind.
But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency can stop farms and ranches dead in their tracks with President Obama’s new Coarse Particulate Matter National Ambient Air Quality Standard, which would double current rural air quality restrictions.
Then watch for a few years until the last farm and the last ranch die off, still struggling to comply with an impossible rule.
But would Obama really do that? Use farm dust to turn America into a food-free zone? My intuition says yes, because a few months ago EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson began repeatedly denying it. Arnold’s Iron Law of American Bureaucracy: If they deny it, expect it.
EPA proposal threatens irrigated agriculture in central Arizonahttp://westernfarmpress.com/government/epa-proposal-threatens-irrigated-agriculture-central-arizona
While many individuals and groups have waged a constant and frustrating battle against the coming total seizure and control of food production as practiced by family farmers and ranchers historically, several questions have gone unanswered. The biggest of all of course is, why?
Common sense, combined with critical and analytical thinking, cannot produce a rational answer for the onslaught of legislation, expansion of government agencies known for their incompetence and waste, and the complicity of state governments.
What is this all about?
I believe the answer to at least a portion of it, reared its ugly and threatening head during the September 23, 2010 Senate meeting, where Senator Durbin speculated that what might be needed is one agency to oversee all food production; for safety and efficiency, of course!
This comment was not just speculative, nor was it incidental or coincidental. This is exactly where the government intends to go as they move to erect barriers to anything other than corporate industrialized farming and ranching, practiced by multinational corporations and bio-pirates and facilitated by unlawful international agreements and willing participants in congress. These same “stakeholders” are now at the congressional doors with the expectations of collecting on their investments.
What is intended, and was intended all along, is the creation of a new monolithic Homeland Security style, behemoth federal corporate agency, if not HSD itself. This is exactly where they are heading. This is what they intended all along. As much as 80% of all revenues to this new police state agency will be used for enforcement. Enforcement is needed when government action is unconstitutional and/or an infringement on your rights. The government will “force” you to submit using agency personnel who have been unlawfully empowered to act as “police”. And if you think your friends, neighbors and family members won’t slap on a government badge, pick up a gun and come after you . . . think again. Read the rest at The Activist Post:
- 2009, Fall. USDA inspector shows up at Dollarhite Family Farm (Missouri) and demands an inspection. After insisting there were no problems with the family's small-scale raising of bunny rabbits, USDA officials later try to fine the family $90,000 for alleged violations (http://www.naturalnews.com/032476_rabbits_USDA.html).http://www.naturalnews.com/033280_FDA_raids_timeline.html
from BBCW by Bungalow BillHere's the USDA's settlement offer to John Dollarhite:
John Dollarhite USDA Settlement Offer
As you can see, the USDA asks John Dollarhite to grant them jurisdiction and give up the farm all to escape their tyranny that is anti-constitutional when you consider Dollarhite wasn't engaged in interstate commerce.

Since breaking news about a July 21 raid on a farm 12 miles north of Denver that resulted in local law enforcement officials seizing 193 rabbits from a nationally-recognized rabbit expert, I’ve learned more disturbing details about the case. Perhaps least shocking was my discovery that members of the Denver-area news media appear to have swallowed everything thrown at them by the Jefferson County (Colo.) Sheriff’s Office.
Before pressing on, I’ll recap the lowlights of what transpired after someone placed an anonymous call — the first ever, according to officials with the Sheriff’s Office — to a new statewide Crime Stoppers hotline that had been set up in June, specifically to take reports from citizens of suspected animal abuse:
1. Without a warrant, officials with the Sheriff’s Office descended upon Debe Bell’s Six Bells Farm Candle Factory and Rabbitry at approximately 10:30 a.m., accompanied by three veterinarians and several volunteers from the local branch of the House Rabbit Society — a nationwide group comprised of people who, according to Bell, think rabbits need to be raised like small children.
2. During the next three hours, according to Bell, the throng of law enforcement officers, veterinarians and volunteers opened the doors of her 600-square-foot barn, turned off the water to the swamp cooler (an air conditioning system for the barn) and caused the temperature in the barn to rise to 84 degrees.
3. Some six hours after they arrived, Sheriff’s Office officials produced a warrant which spokesperson Mark Techmeyer said was obtained after they convinced a judge that they had seen “what they believed to be some issues” at Six Bells Farm.
4. During the next four hours, according to Bell, the same throng loaded her rabbits in cardboard boxes, put them in a horse trailer and hauled them off to the county fairgrounds. There, the rabbits were placed in dog and cat crates with solid-bottom floors, meaning, “The minute they urinate, they’re standing in their own urine.”
5. For several days after their arrival at the fairgrounds, Bell said, the crated rabbits were kept in a non-air conditioned concrete-stalls horse barn until officials with the Foothills Animal Shelter — a group tasked by the Sheriff’s Office with caring for the animals — decided that wasn’t working out and obtained a swamp cooler.
As of today, neither the Denver Post nor CBS Denver has seen fit to report on the raid more than one time despite the fact that it contains a plethora of “low-hanging fruit” story angles any investigative reporter worth his salt would die for.
A. Bell is known statewide and nationally as a top rabbit expert, and she’s relied upon by families involved in at the county, state and national level as the go-to person for children and families in need of help with and knowledge of rabbits. Surely, it would be newsworthy if a woman like her all of the sudden “went bad” like the star of the AMC television series, “Breaking Bad.”
B. According to Berthoud, Colo., attorney Elizabeth Kearney, there was only one dead rabbit in her client’s barn, and all of the other dead rabbits were in her freezer. Why? Because Bell provides rabbit meat to the local zoo and to several raptor rescue groups. That has to be newsworthy, right?
C. Twelve of the seized rabbits belong to 4-H kids who were planning to show them at upcoming fairs — two at the Jefferson County Fair that started Thursday and the remaining 10 at the Colorado State Fair which runs from Aug. 26 to Sept. 5 in Pueblo. I guarantee Barbara Walters could get those kids to cry and send the ratings through the roof!
D. On the Constitutional rights front, one has to wonder why no one in the Denver news media has explored the subjects of whether it’s lawful for law enforcement agents to (1) step foot on someone’s property without a warrant and (2) seize someone’s private property (livestock) based solely upon an anonymous phone call to a hotline that pays up to $2,000 for tips. Lawyers, please form a line.
E. With animal rights activism forever on the increase, one has to wonder why no one in the Denver news media has explored the possibility that animal rights activists — who would love to see people like Bell put out of business — made the anonymous hotline call. Perhaps the media outlets are afraid of blowback from the animal rights wackos?
F. The shortage of participants at this year’s Small Animals Show at the Colorado State Fair is so severe that officials extended the deadline for entry and, in order to prevent animal rights activists from collecting the names of rabbit owners, officials are planning to not display the names of rabbit owners alongside their rabbits. Why? Because rabbit raisers in Colorado are scared they might suffer the same fate as Six Bells Farm and are not going to show their animals at the Colorado State Fair, Bell said. That has to be news, doesn’t it? Read the rest at Big Journalism:
