This might seem like the kind of story you’d ignore as unimportant – but pay attention to it.
Outraged farmers threatened to disrupt a federal order to stop the flow of irrigation water from a lake amid a severe drought in the US state of Oregon. They warned that right-wing militias will back them in case of confrontation.
Farmers are protesting because they own the water in the Upper Klamath Lake, farmer Dan Nielsen told RT’s Ruptly video agency. He stood outside an American flag-colored tent that was set up next to the canal headgates, which control the flow of irrigation water from the lake.
“It’s ours and the federal government actually just stole it. No due process of law, no compensation,” Nielsen said, adding that federal officials had violated the locals’ property rights guaranteed by the US Constitution.
Protesters brought signs saying “Water for Farms” and “Open the Gates. No Water. No Food. No Life.”
They spoke about releasing the water themselves if the government does not back down. “If they don’t budge… I think we’re just going to end up taking it,” Nielsen said. “It’s the only way the government gets it.” In order to avoid confrontation, officials must let farmers use the water for their crops or purchase the land from the farmers, he said.
The US Bureau of Reclamation closed the canal last month, saying that due to the extreme drought there was not enough water left for it to operate properly. The bureau also said that releasing the water will threaten the endangered species of salmon that inhabit the lake. The fish have agricultural and spiritual significance to the Native American tribes who live upstream.
See: the environmentalist bullshit and some gibberish about Indian spiritualism.
These are always the excuses now.
According to local media, thousands of farmers on the Oregon-California border were left without a steady water supply after the closure of the canal. Klamath Irrigation District president Ty Kliewer said that “the impacts to our family farms and these rural communities will be off the scale.”
An outraged Nielsen and another farmer, Grant Knoll, purchased a vacant lot near the federal waterway, where they set up a tent dubbed ‘Water Crisis Info Center’. Protesters told Jefferson Public Radio (JPR) that they had teamed up with People’s Rights, a group founded by well-known conservative militia leader Ammon Bundy.
I don’t like Ammon Bundy and think he is probably some kind of spook, as he takes things that matter and then turns them into weird spectacles that the media is able to claim resemble Timothy McVeigh style terrorism.
Maybe he’s legit and just weird, who knows.
But don’t let that dickhead distract you.
The government is actively trying to subvert American farmers, to bankrupt them, and to restrict the food supply. This is the beginning of a fed war on farmers.
Did you know that Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates is the largest private farmland owner in the US? Recently, NBC News reported that Bill Gates along with his estranged wife Melinda Gates had acquired more than 269,000 acres of farm in the United States in the past 10 years.
As per the report, the Gates have their own land in at least 18 American states.
In Washington, the duo owns more than 14,000 acres of farmland that includes potato fields so massive that they are visible from space and some of which are processed into french fries for McDonald’s. Apart from potatoes, carrots and onions are also grown in large quantities for grocery stores in his farm.
The feds are attacking and bankrupting farmers, while Bill Gates is in the middle of buying up all the farmland in the country?
Does this seem like a coincidence?
If the feds strangle the farmers, using these environmentalist regulations (and some gobbledygook about the Indians!), Gates or some other major economic power will be able to buy up their land.
Meanwhile, as we reported earlier this week: investment management firms are buying out all of the residential houses from underneath the middle class, paying 20-50% above market value.
This is the Great Reset.
It is happening, one day at a time, all around us.
It is no different from communism: instead of the government owning everything, corporations will own everything, and you will be a peasant, getting a UBI pittance in the form of the fedcoin to buy your marijuana, insect gruel and porno subscription.
You are seeing the endgame of the coronavirus hoax coming into view everywhere, but the media is instead talking about QAnon, the Russians and Chinese, and continuing to go on and on about this moronic virus hoax.
And gay sex.
Lots and lots and lots of gay anal sex.
