Federal Reserve and USG Sabotaged Food Supplies

There have been 17 food plant fires and incidents (this older article notes 16 of them), including one being hit by a plane.

Media can create any narrative by focusing the news on a target. 24/7 media coverage of Columbine and other mass shootings (mainly by whites to push a racism agenda), making a white cop killing a black suspect national news (to push a racism agenda), wall-to-wall coverage of missing children creates fear of kidnapping.

Unsuprisingly, when the narrative is against them, Snopes actually does some research! Wow just wow, they checked some facts.

Snopes: Are Fires at Food Processing Plants a ‘New Trend’?

Industrial accidents are all reported and they have a list from 2019:

Here are a few of the news stories we found about fires, explosions, and other accidents that occurred at food manufacturing businesses in 2019.

The claim of a new “trend” is just simply incorrect.

When you realize the U.S. has more than 36,000 food and beverage processing establishments in operation (according to a report from the USDA in 2019), you see that the 26 news articles listed above refer to less than 1% of these facilities. Furthermore, when you recognize that operations at the majority of these facilities were only temporarily suspended, and that many of these stories refer to smaller facilities, you can see that this “threat” is far less than the threat some social media users assert.

We reached out to the North American Meat Institute, the National Pork Producers Council, and the National Chicken Council (three organizations that represent food production facilities) for more information about this rumor. While we have yet to hear back from NAMI or NPPC, Tom Super, the Senior Vice President of Communications with NCC, told us that these rumors did not document an “alarming trend.” Super said:

I can only speak for chicken, but like any manufacturing plant, there are generally a few fires that occur each year across the country. Most of them are contained rather quickly. And certainly not enough to affect the chicken supply. There are about 200 federally inspected chicken slaughtering plants in the US and thousands more that further process chicken. I would not categorize this as an “alarming trend.”

I do not see evidence of sabotage yet. Instead, the main threat to the food supply is inflation. By disrupting price signals in the economy, supply chains have been damaged. Adding to that are U.S. sanctions on Russia blocking fertilizer supplies and materials, and driving up natural gas prices, an input for some fertilizers. China's counter-sanctions via "coronavirus lockdowns" are adding to the mix.

If Snopes would do this type of research on crime statistics as one example, they would be able to report that systemic racism is false. Do the same type of research on climate "science" and they would report climate alarmism is false. The media tried pushing the "anti-Asian violence caused by white supreamcy" narrative but stopped when most of the videos showed black suspects.

I will try posting this information on right-wing areas to see if I get pushback. I expect some will tell me that Snopes is a bad source, even though all the Snopes article links to industrial accident data.

The media can create a false narrative in any direction by focusing attention on it. This ties back into their panic over censorship. They know what they're doing and they know that anyone, be it Trump or some anonymous Twitter account, can create viral narratives too. That the playing field is leveled by the Internet. For the liars, their greatest fear is the Truth because that is the most difficult narrative to combat. For those of us who want to defeat the liars, we must defend and spread truth. I do not yet see any evidence that food plant incidents are out of the ordinary. The main cause of any disruptions in inflation, with political supply-chain disruptions a secondary cause.
