Raw Milk Crackdown

“They came in the dark, shining bright flashlights while my family was asleep, keeping me from milking my cows, from my family, from breakfast with my family and from our morning devotions, and alarming my children enough so that the first question they asked my wife was, ‘Is Daddy going to jail?’”

That’s how Amish farmer Dan Allgyer described an early morning visit last week from two FDA agents, two U.S. Marshals, and a Pennsylvania state trooper. Apparently, investigating a single farmer for possibly trafficking raw milk across state lines requires a show of force.

“I became aware of the cars as soon as I walked out on the sidewalk as part of my morning routine around 4:30 a.m. and immediately said to myself something is going on,” Allgyer wrote in a statement for the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association. “I was watching and noticed three cars were cruising down right behind each other, and immediately thought, hey, that looks like trouble. I watched and pretty soon one car came back and parked on my neighbor’s farm, on private property.”

After tooling around, the cars showed up Allgyer’s property. “They all got out of their vehicles – five men all together–with big bright flashlights they were shining all around. My wife and family were still asleep. When they couldn’t find anybody, they prepared to knock on the door of my darkened house. Just before they got to the house I stepped out of the barn and hollered at them, then they came up to me and introduced themselves.”

Without telling him what is was, one of the agents handed Allgyer an FDA warrant that allowed the agents to inspect Allgyer’s farm. The warrant read: “You are authorized to take all necessary actions, including, but not limited to, the use of reasonable force, to effectuate entry to the above-named premises, the land and buildings located there, at reasonable times during ordinary business hours and to remain thereon to inspect within reasonable limits and in a reasonable manner all portions” of Allgyer’s farm.

Allgyer isn’t the criminal that the FDA is making him out to be. “When Americans first began pasteurizing milk at the turn of the last century, testing was rudimentary and farms were far less hygienic,” Katherine Mangu-Ward wrote in February, the first time inspectors showed up to raid Allgyer’s farm. “Today, the situation is different. Testing for the presence of such pathogens is much more precise, and farms are far cleaner. While processing milk remains a good choice for milk shipped to the population as a whole, there are a group of food rebels who would rather drink their milk straight from the cow.”

When Allgyer asked why the agents wanted to inspect his farm, FDA investigator Joshua C. Shafer said, “We have credible evidence that you are involved in interstate commerce.”

“I went to go talk to my wife,” Allgyer said in his statement. “As I walked away, they held a quick excited conversation and I heard one of them say, ‘I’ll take care of him.’ At that point, apparently, they had designated one of the marshals to stick close to me and dog my footsteps. He followed me as I walked toward the house. I went in the house quickly and told my wife a few words to let her know the situation, then immediately came back out of the house before the marshal had time to follow me in. When I came back out, they were inspecting all the coolers sitting out. They spent about a half hour digging through the packed coolers filled with milk and other food – all private property – taking pictures.”

After watching the agents root through his barn, open his freezers, and dig through his dumpster, Allgyer set about milking the cows, hours behind schedule.

“When I was just about done milking, Schafer and the other agent came in the barn and wanted me to answer some more questions. I told them I would not. The second agent said, ‘Are you gong to deliver those coolers to Bethesda and Bowie Maryland?’ I just looked at him. Then Schafer made a gesture and said, ‘The stickers with those towns names are on the coolers,’ as through to say, you might as well tell me.”

Allgyer refused to say anything and the agents left. Several days later, Allgyer received a letter from the Food and Drug Administration that read, “An investigation by the u.s. Food and Drug Administration has determined that you are causing to be delivered into interstate commerce, selling, or otherwise distributing raw milk in final package form for human consumption.”

The letter does not list the evidence against Allgyer, nor does it name specific violations. In fact, the letter from the FDA says exactly the opposite: “This letter is not intended to provide an all-inclusive list of violations.” Two paragraphs later, the letter instructs Allgyer to report within 15 days “the specific steps you have taken to correct the noted violations.”

“Failure to make prompt corrections could result in regulatory action without further notice. Possible actions include seizure and injunction.

Boy, I really feel blessed to have the federal government protecting me from raw milk, don't you?

Unthinkable: Propaganda for False Flag Nuclear Terrorism and Torture

Special Agent Jack Bauer has competition. His name is “H” and he is a black-ops interrogator and an FBI agent. He is played by Samuel L. Jackson, not Keifer Sutherland. The film is Unthinkable.

A terrorist — not a Muslim but a white guy, sort of like all those militias you’ve heard about lately — has placed nuclear bombs in three American cities and it is up to “H” to “interrogate” the terrorist and find out where they are hidden.

In the trailer, we see the terrorist (played by Michael Sheen) strapped to a chair. Mr. “H” is shown preparing a syringe of some presumably evil substance to inject the terrorist with (maybe something like Jack Bauer’s notorious hyoscine-pentothal, a fictional pain inducing drug).

Agent Helen Brody, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, objects to the torture. It’s unconstitutional, she complains. One of her colleagues insists if the bombs go off there will be no Constitution. In other words, torture will save the Constitution.

Maybe General Tommy Franks had a part in writing the script. In 2003, Franks told Cigar Aficionado magazine that “the worst thing that could happen” would be terrorists acquiring and then using a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon. If that happens, Franks warned, “the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we’ve seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.”

Franks was the first high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be sent to the memory hole in favor of a military dictatorship.

Franks didn’t speculate about when or where such an event might take place. That’s what Fox television and Hollywood are for.

Unthinkable is simply big screen propaganda to get you accustomed to the prospect of a false flag terror attack and Frank’s assertion that a military dictatorship will be required in response. It is predictive programming. It is also an excuse to permit torture.
Our rulers love this sort of stuff. In the The Long Kiss Goodnight 9/11 was foretold by five years.

In the Matrix, released in 1999, the character Neo’s passport expires on 9/11/2001 and has an issue date of 9/12/1990, the day after George Bush’s famous New World Order speech.

The Lone Gunmen, a spin-off of the X-Files that aired 6 months prior to September 11, 2001, featured a plot by rogue government agencies to hijack a commercial jet by remote control and crash it into the World Trade Center. The plotters planned to blame the terrorist event on Muslims and then start a war.

Dean Haglund, who starred in “The Lone Gunmen” series, told Alex Jones in 2004 that the CIA regularly attends Hollywood parties and submits ideas to be planted in film and TV scripts.

Unthinkable arrives as Obama tells us al-Qaeda might acquire nuclear bombs. “This is something that could change the security landscape of this country and around the world for years to come,” Obama said Sunday.

Nuclear Blast Victims Would Have to Wait

The White House has warned state and local governments not to expect a "significant federal response" at the scene of a terrorist nuclear attack for 24 to 72 hours after the blast, according to a planning guide.

President Obama told delegates from 47 nations at the Nuclear Security Summit on Tuesday that it would be a "catastrophe for the world" if al-Qaeda or another terrorist group got a nuclear device, because so many lives would be lost and it would be so hard to mitigate damage from the blast.

A 10-kiloton nuclear explosion would level buildings within half a mile of ground zero, generate 900-mph winds, bathe the landscape with radiation and produce a plume of fallout that would drift for hundreds of miles, the guide says. It was posted on the Internet and sent to local officials.

SUMMIT: Nuclear agreement hailed as step forward

ON THE WEB: Read the planning guide (pdf)

The document is designed to help local officials craft plans for responding to a nuclear blast. The prospect is anything but far-fetched, says Rick Nelson of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "Do I think in my lifetime I'll see the detonation of a nuclear device? I do."

One challenge he says, will be to persuade survivors to stay indoors, shielded from dangerous radiation until they're given the all-clear or told to evacuate. "In all likelihood, families will be separated," he says. "It's going to be scary to sit tight, though it's the right thing to do."

The government's planning scenarios envision a terrorist strike in an urban area with a 10-kiloton device, slightly smaller than the roughly 15-kiloton Hiroshima bomb. A 10-kiloton device packs the punch of 10,000 tons of TNT.

The chaos that would inevitably follow such a blast would make it difficult for the federal government to react quickly. "Emergency response is principally a local function," the document says, though "federal assistance will be mobilized as rapidly as possible."

The "Planning Guidance for Response to a Nuclear Detonation" was developed by a task force headed by the White House Homeland Security Council. It was circulated to state and local government officials and first responders in January 2009.

The report has never been formally released to the public, White House spokesman Nick Shapiro says.

It offers practical guidance to first responders and advice on radiation measurement and decontamination.

Disaster experts say local governments aren't prepared for a nuclear attack. "There isn't a single American city, in my estimation, that has sufficient plans for a nuclear terrorist event," says Irwin Redlener of Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health.

The message for families is simple, he says: Stay put. Wait for instructions. If you've been outside, dust off, change, shower. "What citizens need to know fits on a wallet-sized card," Redlener says. "A limited amount of information would save tens of thousands of people."

The government sure likes to tell people what they're planning, don't they?

National Guard Trainees in Funny Blue Helmets
March 30, 2010

In the photo below, taken from the National Guard’s Photos – Michigan Recruit Sustainment Program page on Facebook, we see a group of Michigan National Guard trainees wearing blue helmets.

United Nations soldiers also wear blue helmets.

The fellows in the photo (and two young women) are not wearing UN helmets, though. They are Black Diamond helmets. Black Diamond manufactures sports gear, not equipment for the United Nations.

However, the color of the helmets is awfully strange, some would say coincidental.

Is it coincidental? You decide.
