(NaturalNews) Dear fellow junk food aficionados: A great chapter of American history is coming to an end. The Texas-based Hostess company, the producer of Twinkies, Ho Ho's and other fine pastries, has been gutted by a union dispute and is closing its doors for good. A total of 18,500 people will lose their jobs, but even more catastrophically, we will no longer have Twinkies!

Hostess Brands Inc. today announced that it is winding down operations and has filed a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking permission to close its business and sell its assets, including its iconic brands and facilities. Bakery operations have been suspended at all plants, says a statement on the Hostess Brands website.

This is devastating news for America.

It means we can no longer sit around our couches as happy slobs, eating off one end of a Twinkie and sucking the sugary goodness out of it like a human junk food suction machine.

It means we can no longer eat away our emotional pain on a lonely Friday night through the "self medication" of three boxes of chocolate creamy Ho Ho's.

It means the nationwide supply of Ding Dongs is now limited to the knuckleheads running things in Washington D.C. (And you can't eat them, unfortunately.)

Twinkies flying off the shelves as Americans prepare for the junk food apocalypse

In response to the news that Hostess is shutting down all operations, many Americans have found the strength to somehow get off their couches and march out to their local Wal-Marts and grocery stores where they are clearing the shelves of all Hostess products.

This brave action of "junk food preparedness" is the last stage before the coming "Twinkie apocalypse."

"I got the last Chocolate Donettes from the Shell in Oak Park..." wrote junk food fan Rani Morrison on her Facebook page. "Walgreens by my job are already out," she added.

Another junk food revolutionary wrote, "I just cleaned out the Dominick's in Bartlett."

Forget about food, water, ammo and emergency first aid: Hurry and buy some Twinkies to save your souls while you still can! Without Hostess Twinkies, what is there worth living for anyway?

The Twinkie Rescue Executive Order

Just as Hostess is closing, the CDC is reporting that diabetes rates have doubled across 18 U.S. states. It would be terribly, terribly sad to see this record-setting race to runaway disease come to an end, which is why I am going to petition the White House to issue a "Twinkie Rescue Executive Order."

This executive order would ask the federal government to turn the Hostess factory into a FEMA camp, then round up all union workers at gunpoint, "detain" them indefinitely under the NDAA and force them into hard labor producing Hostess / FEMA Twinkies for the good of America.

Twinkies should then be distributed to all Americans under a new federal nutrition program. All emergency FEMA foods should be replaced with Twinkies, and school lunch programs across America should be replaced with Twinkie lunches.

It is time to restore America's cuisine greatness! Say YES to the Twinkie Rescue Executive Order! Say YES to the government's taking charge of Hostess and turning it into a prison camp production system. Say YES to happiness and abundance for all! And say YES to a hundred more years of diabetes and Big Pharma medications that destroy our livers and bankrupt our families! YES! YES! YES!

We are Americans! We have the God-given right to suck Twinkies! And let no man stand in our way or we will drool on them.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
