Comments by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
(NaturalNews) One of the most astounding elements of yesterday's SWAT-style armed raid on Rawesome Foods in Venice, California is the simple fact that both California and the U.S. government are completely and utterly bankrupt. They're running on financial fumes, and at the federal level, a total debt default was just narrowly avoided (and it will come back again in a few months). But even though these government entities are fiscally and morally bankrupt, when it comes to making decisions about how to spend the money they're confiscated from taxpayers, they prioritize things like terrorizing health food buyer's clubs
such as Rawesome Foods. (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_Rawesome_F...
On the scale of harm to the public, the actions of the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry are legendary. Over 100,000 Americans are killed each year by FDA-approved drugs, and yet there's absolutely no action whatsoever being taken to arrest the CEOs of the drug companies who knowingly
sell dangerous drugs that kill people.
Where are the arrests of the CDC officials who pushed useless flu vaccines, knowing that they, too, would cause neurological destruction and even death in some children?
Where are the arrests of the food company executives who knowingly lace their products with MSG, aspartame, sodium nitrite, hydrogenated oils and other poisons that promote degenerative disease?
How about the crackdowns on the evil GMO corporations that have unleashed genetic pollution
across our planet in their greedy quest for profit at the expense of life on Earth?
No, the great police state government that now runs America doesn't bother the real criminals
who get away with murder every single day by poisoning the food
, the medicine and the crops. They all have legal immunity
because the system won't bother dealing with their large-scale crimes. Instead, the power of the corrupt police state is exercised against small, local farms and food businesses
which remain the only option through which everyday people can find real food that isn't artificially modified or contaminated with chemical additives.
What we witnessed at Rawesome Foods yesterday was an act of government-sponsored terrorism
leveled against a health food buyer's club with the sole intent of destroying food
. It's as if we're all watching an Orwellian BOOK BURNING!
Except they weren't burning books; they were pouring raw milk down the drain
and destroying up to $50,000 worth of wholesome, organic, farm-fresh food. Keep in mind this is happening at a time when starvation is on the rise in America
-- and our own government is running around DESTROYING FOOD!
Government thugs are the real terrorists today
These people are terrorists, folks. The California Dept. of Agriculture, the LA County Sheriff's office, the FDA, the CDC... these people are outright terrorists
who represent a clear and present danger to the lives and safety of the American people. They should be arrested at gunpoint by the citizens and charged with the crimes they have committed: Theft, kidnapping, destruction of property, conspiracy to commit felony crimes, trespassing and more (see below).
Even Bin Laden did not terrorize everyday people the way that these government
criminals have done. The California government and U.S. feds have outdone Osama Bin Laden! They've out-terrorized the terrorists! They have targeted innocent citizens at gunpoint and thrown them in jail, destroyed their businesses, confiscated their computers and charged them with felony crimes.
This is government-inspired insanity, folks. And just so you know, this is also the upshot of the new Food Safety Modernization Act
which will only see even MORE armed raids
on health food stores and farms. So all those people who ignorantly supported the Food Safety Bill have ultimately supported acts of terrorism against the American people. (Told ya so! This is what happens when you give MORE power to a corrupt government that respects no law and no rights...)
Denying access to livesaving foods
Even more, those members of the Rawesome Foods buying club who depend on the facility for their farm-fresh food products are now left without that option. The food they had once planned to buy has now been poured down the drain by California state authorities and federal thugs working for the FDA and CDC (both of which are criminal organizations which respect no law and have long abandoned science).
Remember: They are destroying this raw
milk because they don't want you to be able to drink it!
Meanwhile, all the things that admittedly cause disease and kill you -- MSG, aspartame, chemotherapy, contaminated flu vaccines, etc. -- are all perfectly legal to keep on consuming.
Big Government, you see, isn't really interested in protecting your health. But it's extremely interested in protecting Big Business and reminding the commoners that they are total slaves and must do what they're told or be arrested at gunpoint.
America devolves into lawless anarchy, courtesy of the government itself
With these raids, we are witnessing the collapse of the rule of law in America
and the rise of Big Government tyranny against innocent citizens and honest small businesses. The anarchy being unleashed today originates with the government itself which respects no law. Obama launches wars in Libya in total violation of the law; the ATF runs guns into Mexico in complete violation of the law (http://www.naturalnews.com/032934_ATF_illega...
); the FDA routinely violates law by knowingly allowing deadly pharmaceuticals to remain on the market; the DEA routinely conducts illegal raids against legal medical marijuana clinics... need I go on?
We are living under lawless government tyranny
where state and federal thugs commit any crimes they wish -- right out in the open! -- and they don't even care when they're caught because they know the zombie-brained public is too droned out on daytime television and fluoridated water to do anything about it.
Resist or lose your freedom forever
If we do not take immediate action to resist this, we will all become slaves of the state, and we will be forced to eat dead foods
, take CDC-recommended vaccine shots and survive on FDA-enforced pharmaceutical medications. That's the government plan for you, and that's why they are engaged in a full-on assault against home gardening, organic farms, raw milk producers and food freedom organizations.
These are acts of war
being waged against farmers and small business owners. What these government thugs are doing to Rawesome Foods is exactly what the occupying British soldiers did to the original colonists who suffered under decades of government oppression before finally revolting and fighting for their freedom.
Out-of-control oppressive governments, of course, do everything they can to destroy freedom, oppress free thinking and enslave the people. And they take special measures to silence those who challenge their false authority.
No doubt they are trying to plot some way to raid NaturalNews as well, given that we are one of the few honest news organizations left that's actually covering these important stories about runaway government tyranny against the People. Don't be surprised if government thugs attempt to seize our servers and concoct some fictional charges against me personally in their desire to silence what is now becoming one of the strongest voices of commonsense rebellion across the internet: NaturalNews.com.
We serve the interests of the People, and we respect law, liberty and the natural law rights to individually choose our own food, our own medicine and the pursuit of happiness. That commitment to principle, it seems, makes us an enemy of the corrupt thug-infested government which has zero tolerance for free speech or informed members of the public who can still manage to think for themselves.
I'm in good company, of course. If I wind up in front of a firing squad with Paul Craig Roberts on one side and Ron Paul on the other, I'll know we ultimately won. Because freedom is an infectious idea
, and once the flame of freedom has been ignited in new minds, it cannot be so easily extinguished with mere bullets -- no matter who they're aimed at.
I don't expect the USA to last very much longer, folks. The acceleration of the economic implosion combined with the rapid erosion of the rule of law is thrusting us into an irreversible path toward total collapse. No matter what happens, I will hold fast to the principles of freedom, liberty and limited government upon which our nation was founded. I can only pray that enough of us will survive the coming collapse long enough to help erect a new Republic that restores the freedoms and liberties which once made this nation the greatest in the world.
And for God's sake, let us all remember to write in sections about food freedom
and freedom for natural medicine
in whatever future Bill of Rights we may collectively create (which, hopefully, will be based on the original Bill of Rights, but simply expanded to protect even MORE rights of the People).
We who respect law are the real patriots. Those in Washington who brazenly ignore the law are the real terrorists. As things move forward in this crazy world, keep that in mind.
