Look Who's Grabbing American Farms
Look Who's Grabbing American Farms
America's farmers are about to be crushed by the insane rules and red tape that are going to be imposed by the Biden/Harris regime's new 'green deal'. And once they're on their knees, the global elite vulutures who have created the bogus climate change and covid 'crises' will swoop in to take advantage of the biggest fire sale in US history.
The shape of the future is already clear. Bill Gates is ALREADY the leading owner of private farmland in the U.S., now holding 242,000 acres.
Gates “has built up a massive farmland portfolio spanning 18 states,” Forbes reports, noting that his largest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres), Arkansas (47,927 acres), and Nebraska (20,588 acres). He holds the land directly and through third-party entities by Cascade Investments, revealed The Land Report.
Gates’ food-related investments support initiatives that dovetail with the World Economic Forum’s “plans for the ‘reset’ of food and agriculture,” which “include projects and strategic partnerships that favor genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), lab-made proteins” and chemicals “as sustainable solutions to food and health issues,” according to Children’s Health Defense.
Gates has championed and invested in GMOs, pesticides, and plant-based meat alternatives for the same reasons the World Economic Forum does: It is all in the name of sustainability, alleviating hunger, and fighting climate change.
Gates shares his enthusiastic support of GMO seeds in one of his own YouTube videos, “The Future of Farming.” He goes so far as to describe a “Green Revolution” that is “based on new seeds,” calling it “one of the great breakthroughs of all time.” Those new seeds, of course, are all owned and patented by his companies.
In 2016, Gates explained to the Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Blumenstein at the World Economic Forum in Davos that such “new seeds” — in other words, genetically modified seeds — are an “incredible” innovation because of their “resilient” and “yield-enhancing” traits.
Just last year, Gates launched an initiative that aims to expand the use of such GMO seeds. In January 2020, the Gates Foundation founded “The Bill & Melinda Gates Agricultural Innovations LLC”, known as “Gates Ag One,” headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.
The CEO of Gates Ag One is Joe Cornelius, who was formerly the food, nutrition and technology development executive at Bayer Crop Science, and “in the 1990s was Director for International Development at Monsanto.” The drug and biotech behemoth Bayer acquired Monsanto in 2016 for $66 billion dollars. When the Gates Foundation’s annual investment portfolio was published in 2010, it revealed that Gates had bought 500,000 Monsanto shares at around $23 million.
Prior to being acquired by Bayer, Monsanto held patents on crops making up enormous swaths of the U.S. food supply. Monsanto — almost a monopoly — sells approximately 90% of the genetically modified seeds used in the United States, and has been reported to control “roughly 95 percent of all soybeans and 80 percent of all corn grown in the U.S.” through their patented genes.
Monsanto has gained notoriety in the eyes of many as one of the world’s most evil corporations, in large part for peddling poison, with disastrous effects on human health, and lying and falsifying data about those effects numerous times.
Among the dangerous chemicals manufactured by Monsanto were PCBs, which were banned after fifty years for causing a spectrum of health issues; the insecticide DDT, which destroys the central nervous system; and Agent Orange, which contributed to the birth defects of half a million Vietnamese babies, and illnesses like cancer in as many as 2 million people after being used in chemical warfare.
The same elite land grab is also on the horizon in the UK. The rapid phasing out of farming subsidies over the next few years will crash land prices. In a decent country not run by the puppets of global crooks, this would create the opportunity for many more people to create an increasingly diversified patchwork of family farms. But under a misnamed 'conservative' regime whose policies are designed by neocon think-tanks such as Policy Exchange, it is a safe bet that the best and most easily-farmed land will be gobbled up by agribusiness monopolies and asset-grabbers like Gates.
