Joe Biden made an incredibly ominous announcement just a few weeks ago. It sounded like something a crazy dementia patient would say. (Yeah. We know.) He told us that the breadbasket of the world, otherwise known as “America,” would soon be facing food shortages. He even told us the name of the culprit behind these coming shortages: A guy named Putin.
Biden claimed that Putin’s border skirmish with a tiny country called Ukraine, which America doesn’t import any food or fertilizer from, was going to cause food shortages here. Huh? That didn’t make sense. And then food processing plants all across this country started exploding or burning to the ground.
That seems… like kind of a sinister coincidence. Take a look at what started happening AFTER Joe Biden threatened us all with food shortages.
In Hermiston, Oregon, the Shearer Foods plant exploded at the end of February. Because that’s what food processing plants do, right? They just randomly explode. The blast injured seven plant workers and sent a huge plume of black smoke into the skies over eastern Oregon. They almost evacuated the town of Hermiston, but then they got a favorable change in the wind direction.
What did the crater formerly known as the Shearer Foods plant in Hermiston do when it existed? Well, it supplied most of the potato chips and corn chips that you see on the store shelves in the western half of the United States. Now those potatoes and corn will have to be shipped to the East Coast to be turned into chips, which will then have to be transported back to the West Coast for consumers.
Fortunately, the Biden regime has given us such low and stable fuel prices that this won’t affect the price of chips or the supply chain at all, right? We’ve got enough extra trucks and truck drivers to handle all of the potatoes and corn needed to supply half the country with chips, right?
In an incident that was relatively minor in comparison, one of the largest potato plants in Idaho had to shut down for a day because a plane crashed into the building. Whoops! Happens all the time, right? The pilot was killed, but fortunately the workers and the plant itself survived. Still, kinda weird that two of the biggest potato processers in the country were interrupted after Joe Biden said Putin would cause food shortages because of Ukraine.
In the town of Dufur, Oregon, the Azure Standard headquarters building suddenly burned down a couple of nights ago. What’s Azure Standard? It’s the single largest distributor of organic foods in America. In addition to their headquarters building, the fire also destroyed their “liquid pour” facility, their fruit packing facility, and the facility that handles their carob products line. They can suddenly no longer produce cooking oils, honey, vinegar, anything with carob in it, and they have no ability to package organic fruits so they can be sold in stores.
You might think, “Big whoop, I never buy organic foods anyway.” But all the people who do eat organic food aren’t going to starve to death. They’ll just start buying the regular foods that the non-organic crowd eats. Which will increase the demand for those foods, and therefore will cause the price of food to go up even further and faster for everyone. Not to mention a ton of organic farmers are about to go broke because their crops are going to rot, since they no longer have a distributor.
The cause of the fire is “undetermined.” Quick question: Were there any FBI agents lurking around the facilities before they randomly caught on fire? Asking for a friend.
In Plainfield, Indiana, one of the biggest Walmart distribution centers in the country burned down just a couple of weeks ago (right after Joe Biden said food shortages were coming). What did that plant distribute? Well, food, along with all the other crap that Walmart sells. But most importantly: Food.
In Maricopa County, Arizona, a food pantry that distributed free groceries to low-income families burned down a couple of weeks ago. The fire destroyed 50,000 pounds of groceries, and the town no longer has a place to collect and distribute food donations to needy families.
In Salinas, California, the massive Taylor Farms food distribution facility burned to the ground last week. Whoops! Plus, the largest onion packing facility in south Texas burned down a few days ago, in the town of San Juan.
And here’s a weird coincidence as all of this is going on: The Union Pacific Railroad has informed fertilizer companies that it’s reducing the size of fertilizer shipments that it will carry this year, right as planting season is under way for American farmers. We have plenty of fertilizer for this year’s crops. But now farmers can’t get it for some reason.
Oh, and Joe Biden is trying to force the railroads to share cargo space right now, which would reduce the amount of shipping capacity for… basically everything.
If store shelves start going bare at some point later this year, be sure to blame some guy named Putin. Because it’s all his fault somehow.
