Globalists Will Use Carbon Controls To Stop You From Growing Your Own Food

February 2, 2024

By Brandon Smith

In early 2020 in the midst of the covid lockdowns, blue states run by leftist governors pursued mandates with extreme prejudice. In red states like Montana, after the first month or two most of us simply ignored the restrictions and went on with life as usual. It was clear that covid was not the threat federal authorities made it out to be. However, in states like Michigan the vise was squeezed tighter and tighter under the direction of shady leaders like Gretchen Whitmer.

Whitmer used covid as an opportunity to institute some bizarre limitations on the public, including a mandate barring larger stores from selling seeds and garden supplies to customers. “If you’re not buying food or medicine or other essential items, you should not be going to the store,” Whitmer said when announcing her order. The leftist governor was fine with purchases of lottery tickets and liquor, but not gardening tools and seeds.

She never gave a logical reason why she targeted garden supplies, but most people in the preparedness community understood very well what this was all about: This was a beta-test for wider restrictions on food independence. There was widespread rhetoric in the media throughout 2020 attacking anyone stockpiling necessities as “hoarders,” and now they were going after people planning ahead and trying to grow their own food. The establishment did NOT want people to store or produce a personal food supply.

Another prospect that was being openly discussed among globalists was the idea that lockdowns were “helpful” in ways beyond stopping the spread of covid (the lockdowns were actually useless in stopping the spread of covid). They suggested that the these measures could be effective in preventing global carbon emissions and saving the world from “climate change.” The idea of climate lockdowns began to spread.

The corporate media has since lied about the existence of the climate lockdown agenda, but articles and white papers extolling the virtues of shutting down the planet in the name of climate change are easy to find and read. The globalists and their academic defenders wanted PERMANENT lockdowns, or rolling lockdowns every couple of months, shutting down most human activity and travel outside of basic production.

I have argued in the past that what Whitmer was doing in Michigan was a part of this agenda – That her garden supply ban was part of a wider goal that had nothing to do with public health safety and everything to do with stopping people from prepping. The covid controls were only meant to be a precursor to carbon controls.

This past week we have seen more confirmation of this, as a study out of the University of Michigan claims that homegrown foods produce five times more carbon emissions than industrial farming methods.  In other words, private gardens could be considered a threat to the environment. The Telegraph and other corporate platforms have jumped on the story, and I believe this is cause for concern.

The study includes analysis of various gardens from individual family plots to urban and community plots and claims that “garden infrastructure” for individual plots (such as raised beds) contribute far greater carbon pollution than large scale farming. The study seems to ignore the fact that raised beds are more efficient and grow more food in a smaller space, but I doubt they really care to take these kinds of things into consideration.

The average person might be confused by this and assume the opposite is true – Wouldn’t growing foods at home be BETTER for the environment? Not if your funding relies on portraying independent food supplies as bad for the planet. The study is bankrolled by a host of international groups, including the European Union’s Horizon Program which lists “100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030” as one of its project goals.  These 100 cities are then supposed to act as flagship models for the eventual carbon agenda takeover of all cities by 2050.

Such groups have billions of dollars at their disposal and focus most of that monetary firepower on climate change research (propaganda). Do I think that the Michigan study is rigged in favor of a predetermined outcome? Probably. When these studies are funded by globalist interests, their outcomes always seem to favor globalist goals. The study itself does not necessarily argue that people should stop gardening, but it does push the narrative that carbon controls are necessary, even at an individual level.

The Michigan report might seem like a meaningless footnote.  However, as we witnessed last year with a study from the Consumer Product Safety Commission on natural gad appliances, these little and obscure studies are often used to justify large scale government interventions into people’s daily lives. The CPSC study inspired months of debates from Democrats in the US demanding that gas appliances including stoves be banned because they MIGHT cause health side effects, specifically in children (it turns out the study had no concrete basis for this claim).

Leftists and globalists do not care about protecting your health; they care about how these studies can be used to fear monger, thus increasing their power. In other words, if you can rig the science, then you can rig the laws.

We saw something similar to this in a UN study in 2006 which claimed that meat production contributed to nearly 20% of all carbon emissions and was worse for the environment than transportation. The study was exposed in 2010 as “flawed” (fraudulent), but for years the media and globalist organizations used its false conclusions as a springboard to demand limitations and bans on meat production in the name of saving the climate.

If you think the war on farming which is raging right now in Europe is only intended to affect industrial farms, think again. The establishment is going to try to use the man-made climate change lie to dictate ALL food production, right down to your unassuming backyard garden.  And they won’t limit their efforts to the EU; they will come after American farms with the same restrictions.

This is really what the globalist “net zero” programs and 15 minute cities are all about – They are based on the idea that all human activity needs to be monitored and managed. They say it’s for the good of the planet, but the systems they want to put in place from 2030 to 2050 sound like a new digital feudalism, a society where bureaucracies track and trace and micromanage every aspect of your life. The elites benefit greatly while never proving that carbon emissions are a danger to anyone.

Why the obsessive focus on food? Because if people have their own food, then they might be more willing to rebel against further mandates. It’s really that simple. The end game is obvious – Control the food, and you control the world. Do it in the name of saving the planet and a lot of people will even thank you as you starve them.

    A couple of days ago I started 600 seeds of veggies we are fairly good at: toms, peppers, and greens. Last year I doubled the size of our garden to 30’ x 50’. I intend to sell some of these.

    If someone comes along to prevent me from doing this then absolutely no question about it, that’s a line in the sand.

    At the same time, life is getting more and more expensive for consumers and middle class in Europe and the USA, especially food. We’ve all noticed.
    I suspect that in the next great global chaos – made by design! – followed by a major food crisis (for example), the Davos gang will try “to save” us from starvation with their artificial food and insects.

    Also, concerning global issues, here’s a relevant, very relevant article by M. Snyder:

    The “perfect storm of chaos” is getting closer and closer.

      My wife and I used to hit Wendy’s now and again for dinner. We stopped going there when two “Dave’s Double” combos, medium, hit $22.00. That was at the start of the Plandemic. A couple of weeks back, my son was in the ER. My wife and I were in the waiting room. We were hungry. We went over to the Wendy’s down the road. THAT SAME “MEAL” ran me $29.01!!! And hell; the boob behind the counter didn’t even get our order right!!!

      …My “I could afford this before, but can’t now” list just got longer… Thanks again, Traitor Joe…

        I remember just about 3 years ago, a big bottle of olive oil at Trader Joe’s was either $5.99 or $6.99, not it’s $12.99.

      It’s a little more complicated than that. There are laws and force involved, but that is a discussion for another article.

    This sounds very similar to collectivist farming in Europe. The Soviet Union kept running out of food so they had to keep allowing private farming. Then they would snap back into forcing people onto collective farms. It never worked and caused several episodes of starvation. This is from Wikipedia:
    “A Soviet article in March 1975 found that 27% of the total value of Soviet agricultural produce was produced by private farms despite the fact that they only consisted of less than 1% of arable land (approximately 20 million acres), making them roughly 40 times more efficient than collective farms.”

    I personally use zero extra carbon once I have the seeds. I can see counting the harvesting and packaging of the seeds I buy but that seems to hardly touch the amount used on a commercial farm to grow, harvest, package and distribute something like tomatoes. I will grant something like grains may be slightly more carbon efficient on a corporate farm. Even if that is the case, it is not an acceptable basis to take people’s ability to survive away from them.

    It appears with greater clarity every day that very many of us on Planet Earth are too stupid or just too traumatized to recognize that we are currently and deliberately and systematically being erased from Our Planetary Home.
    Leftists are largely in the Too Stupid class. And others of us who have come to embrace these Globalist Captors and their demonic agenda of the full erasure of the human family from our Planet are either too traumatized and no longer in touch with reality or their own selves… or they are as mentally deranged and sick and demented and as desirous of human extinction from Globalist faux gods as the godless demigods themselves.
    The Global Elitists will tell you They don’t believe in a God. But that is just another one of their endless litany of lies. They do indeed believe in deity. But Their pathology and mental and spiritual sickness – as well as Their fundamental narcissism – is in Their believing that it is THEY who are gods. But They are not gods. In fact, they are not even men and woman. They are no longer anything vaguely resembling being human.
    What do you get when you drain all the humanity out of a human being? You get a globalist with delusions of godhood. Or anyone else who identifies with the Dark Siders.
    Perhaps this is how it all ends for us. Our World – not blown up by terrible weapons that never should have seen the light of day in the first place (as many have long feared would do us in) – but ended by a small group of soulless being/things who have severed Their connection to Reality and the best of what human nature is and was intended to be.
    A small group of Deviants who routinely spray our skies with poisons. Who concoct and then inject poisons into our bodies. Who conjure Frankenstein Foods and force that garbage down our throats. Who poison our water supply and the very soils that were meant to grow healthy and nutrition food.
    Who poison our minds with constant images of death and conflict and war. Who poison our youth with hideous ideas and toxic anti-social media which spreads the mental disease it carries like a tidal wave rushing across Planet Earth in a nanosecond.
    Who have poisoned our religious institutions and made them weak and powerless while draining them of the Gospel and the telling of the raw boundless power that lives in true Divinity. That tell us that there is no God… but then who makes gods of a handful of deviant social engineers and technocrats and obscenely rich demigods that demand our worship and obedience as full servants of the Dark State ‘Masters’.

    That tell us that thinking is bad but mindless adherence to their dictates and orders is always good. Who tell is that the First Amendment… and the Second… and the Fourth… hell, ALL of them are mistakes that must be obliterated. As well as anyone who believes in National borders and identities.
    Who tell us that salvation for us clueless sheep IS possible if we will just listen to.. and trust them… and surrender everything to… Them. Include our very souls. All while They laugh hysterically behind our backs as we continue prove to Them that we are just as stupid as They always believed we were.
    Will we just be as stupid as They think we are and let them turn Our World into our final graveyard? Is this how it ends for the human species – spinning around in dark Space being erased by those who live for Darkness in all things?
    Or will we reconnect with the Divinity that still lives within our spirit and by the power of the ‘True Divine’ reclaim our place on Planet Earth as God’s finest creation? And instead of it we who are erased… it is those who live under the dark spirit of the God-less who are ushered off our Planet by the Light that emerges from all our thoughts, words, and deeds which Their Darkness cannot tolerate a single second of Time?
    And would you say that the stakes of this epic cosmic battle could not be any higher?

    • Stephen Nigel Strutt February 3, 2024 at 2:24 am

      Well Done! I think you nailed it! Didn’t see you miss anything! The Globalists are setting a trap for mankind that they themselves will fall into. ‘Whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap’

  • BigMoe February 3, 2024 at 12:38 am

    I truly don’t give a f what the globalist say, think or want. I am a sovereign man who answers to GOD only. I grow and have been growing our own food for several years now and I’m confident that this trend will continue.

  • Hillary February 3, 2024 at 6:17 am

    Excellent reporting! Thank you.

    Now the world needs a home garden congress, to stand up to the hungry globalists who want our freedom.

  • Linda February 3, 2024 at 3:29 pm

    Last week I went to a Greens talk about 29 minute cities or rather being able to access everything you need within a 20 minute walk. It became obvious within about less than 5 minutes that modern cities aren’t set up to be converted to 20 minute cities. The only way that I could see the elites achieving this is by strict policing controls.

    Starvation may not be the primary goal. Neurogenesis is the target of the spike protein, the permademic, climate hysteria and economic collapse. Fear halts type 2 thinking so that index neurons in the hippocampus can be overwritten with a new operating system more amenable to the power lusters. This is the cause of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Bill Gates and the globalists are attempting to install a new version of Windows in the human brain and they’re creating fear to do it.

      No, the globalists are eugenicists. Population reduction is the goal (starvation), but fear would be a useful side benefit for them.

      • FGB3 February 10, 2024 at 9:25 pm

        Correct as usual “King Friday”! And I mean that Brandon.

        The seeds of this current manifestation of eugenics goes all the way back to the antecedents of the Fabians. I remember reading a little book by H.G. Wells which introduced this idea, ‘Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress upon Human Life and Thought’. Sounds boring doesn’t it?

        Well it is and it isn’t. Depends upon your frame of mind. As I read along I began to see that Mr. Wells hated the middle class and yearned for a return to the “good old days” of Feudalism. Wells and George B. Shaw and others that formed the Fabians were aligned quite nicely with John D. Rockefeller, Sr.’s eugenics. This was the turn of the 20th century.

        I imagine I am not telling you anything Brandon, I just reference it for others. This is a very patient, dedicated, smart coterie of villains that have been working away, one generation after the other for one hundred years. How do we as free men handle that?

        As the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, Carlo Maria Viganò, put it in his first letter to Donald Trump, (and I paraphrase) ‘the forces of darkness once hid themselves but now feel sufficiently powerful so that they no longer hide themselves or their intentions’.

        We are at the crossroads. We are at a red line. Time has run out. It’s us or them. Black or White. Death or Life.

    I refuse to listen to the climate change narrative from the War Pigs! The ones pushing climate change are typically the same ones promoting war. War leaves a huge carbon footprint.

  • estevek February 5, 2024 at 5:21 pm

    its obvious that these fiends are weaponizing weather to damage crops, poisoning air and soil. even rain water is tainted with heavy metals and polymers. flooding rains, droughts, arctic freezes are not good for agriculture. these are what the Bible calls “the destroyers of the earth…”
    Romans 10:9, 10 offer mankind hope. none of us can save ourselves.
