Third World: US Agriculture Collapsing At Alarming Rates As Farm Industry Begs For Bailouts Reader 06/21/2019 (Fri) 16:31:08 Id: f39a8c [Preview] No. 14921 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
This year's corn crop has been absolutely decimated by constant rain and unseasonably cold weather. Trade wars have collapsed American exports of soybeans to China, as foreclosures and bankruptcies are now rippling through the Midwest's agricultural sector at disturbing speeds.

The US farm lobby said Tuesday that a third farm bailout would be needed if Washington grinds to a halt during the 2020 US election cycle limits President Trump from closing trade deals and reopening top export markets, reported Reuters.

American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said if Congress fails to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), then other trade deals between the European Union and Japan could remain unresolved.

Farmers have already felt a tremendous loss of momentum in exports to China. They're now hoping countries like Europe and Mexico can purchase additional agriculture products.

"The deeper we get into this campaign season, the more difficult it might become" to get USMCA ratified or any trade deals done, Duvall said in an interview.

"Not because of the treaty itself, not because of the need itself, but just because of the rhetoric around the election," Duvall said.

Democratic lawmakers seized the House of Representatives during the 2018 midterm election - as they have routinely demanded changes to the USMCA trade deal.

Duvall said the Farm Bureau has indicated that key export markets have been disrupted at a time when low spot prices, high inventory levels, slowing economic outlook, and damaging weather across the Midwest, could culminate into a full-blown farm crisis on par to the 1980s.

President Trump has promised about $28 billion in farm bailouts in two separate rounds to farmers, who many are his base, to compensate for the loss of sales.

Texas Will Be Mexican Within The Next Decade As US Invaded By Foreign Occupation Reader 06/21/2019 (Fri) 16:30:15 Id: 294fa7 [Preview] No. 14920 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

The estimates come as lawmakers begin to sharpen their focus on the 2021 redistricting cycle, when they’ll have to redraw the state’s congressional and legislative maps to account for population growth. And they highlight the extent to which the demographics of the state continue to shift against the Republican Party.

During the last go-around, which is still being litigated in federal court, Hispanics accounted for about 65% of the state’s growth. With about two years of growth left to go, their share of Texas’ population increase since 2010 reached 54% last July.

The Hispanic community is growing in numbers across the state. But 47% of Texas Hispanics now live in the state’s five biggest counties — Harris, Bexar, Dallas, Tarrant and Travis. Home to Houston, Harris County leads that list with more than 2 million Hispanic residents. But Hispanic growth since 2010 continues to be most significant in Tarrant County.

But while Hispanics’ numbers are growing the most, the state’s Asian community is growing the fastest.

Illinois Farmers Giving Up Planting Crops Due To Geo-engineering and Trade Wars Reader 06/19/2019 (Wed) 15:11:41 Id: 7ac1d2 [Preview] No. 14914 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Farmers in Illinois whose land has been thrashed by flooding have given up on planting. Instead of growing food, they decided to throw a party. And who could blame them?

The storms that have caused major flooding in Illinois have forced farmers to give up on their crops. Forecasts for even more rain also sent corn futures to a 5-year-high, bringing the food crisis ever closer to reality. Few farmers will even see a benefit from the higher prices because they can’t even get their corn planted in the ground.

Dozens of corn farmers and those who sell them seed, chemicals, and equipment gathered on Thursday at the restaurant in Deer Grove, Illinois, after heavy rains caused unprecedented delays in planting this year and contributed to record floods across the central United States, according to a report by Reuters. Rather than focus on the abysmal farming year, they decided to party instead.

The storms have left millions of acres unseeded in the $51 billion U.S. corn market and put crops that were planted late at a greater risk for damage from severe weather during the growing season. Together, the problems heap more pain on a farm sectorthat has suffered from years of low crop prices and a U.S.-China trade war that is slowing agricultural exports.

James McCune, a farmer from Mineral, Illinois, was unable to plant 85% of his intended corn acres and wanted to commiserate with his fellow farmers by hosting the “Prevent Plant Party” at The Happy Spot. He invited them to swap stories while tucking into fried chicken and a keg of beer in Deer Grove, a village of about 50 people located 120 miles (193 km) west of Chicago. – Reuters

Regardless of the news, it isn’t looking good for farmers in America. Already dealing with the political ramifications of the trade war, bankruptcies and suicides at record levels, farmers are now devastated by destructive weather. All things considered, farmers are expected to harvest the smallest corn crop in four years nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The agency last week reduced its planting estimate by 3.2% from May and its yield estimate by 5.7%. Farmers think more cuts are likely as the late-planted crop could face damage from hot summer weather and an autumn frost.

Because of the flooding and problems in the farming sector, there’s no time like the present to learn to grow your own food. It’s a vital skill when preparing for any catastrophe.

Nation of Debt Slaves: Americans Increasingly Rely On Massive Debt Insolvency To Get By Reader 06/19/2019 (Wed) 17:27:12 Id: 5cdb4a [Preview] No. 14915 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Student-loan debt hit an all-time high of $1.4 trillion in the first quarter of 2019, Experian claims. Considering that this is an increase of 116 percent in the last decade, it’s safe to say that young adults are starting their lives with a crushing debt burden. But student loans aren’t the only reason they are struggling: auto loans and credit cards are also hurting their pocketbook.

When compared to other generations, millennials are much less likely to have credit card debt. However, that doesn’t mean they are completely immune to it. As a matter of fact, most of the debt millennials between the ages of 25 and 34 carry comes from credit card use.

The fact that the government created the current student-loan crisis is a well-established truth at this point. However, what few people talk about is how credit card debt can also be traced back to government’s bad monetary policies.

Credit card companies offer cards with high-interest rates because consumers who rely on credit cards are more likely to default. In order to make sure they can cover their costs and make some profit, these companies attach high-interest rates to their products, even when competing with other companies to appeal to a greater audience.

But the fact that so many people rely on credit cards for basic purchases and even to pay bills says something else about the country’s economy: the dollar’s purchasing power hasn’t kept up with inflation.

After the 2007 financial crisis, the Federal Reserve’s go-to policy was keeping interest rates low and expand its balance sheet, effectively creating a greater reserve of U.S. currency and putting more paper money into circulation.

While those who put their hands on this money first, such as Wall Street junkies, do make a profit, everyone else loses in the long run as the government’s policy of expanding the money supply and artificially inflating the prices of resources, as a result, devalues the currency. If living life wasn’t as expensive as it is now thanks to the country’s misguided monetary policies, then perhaps Americans wouldn’t rely on credit cards as much.

It is true that consumers would also be less likely to rely on a credit card, to begin with, if they understood what it meant to their finances in the long run. Unfortunately, they lack basic financial literacy and often see credit cards as a part of life.

In the end, both ignorance regarding their financial decisions and the government’s misguided policies are creating a ticking time bomb.

Trade War: China To Limit Access Of Rare Earth Metals Reader 06/18/2019 (Tue) 12:21:33 Id: 2a4975 [Preview] No. 14913 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Amid the ongoing trade war with the US, consultations between China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and rare earth industry executives have laid the groundwork for limiting rare-earth element (REE) exports.

During a Monday press conference, the Chinese NDRC said it was developing new state policies on rare earth metals, and intends to make them public as soon as possible.

According to Deutsche Bank, the key conclusion from the recent meetings is that Chinese authorities are preparing to limit shipments of rare-earth permanent magnets in addition to rare-earth elements, thereby closing off what was termed an "escape route" by the Global Times. Beijing’s veiled threats to restrict exports of rare earth metals to the US have been called by many as one of China's nuclear options in a trade conflict with Washington. The US relies on China for about 80 percent of its rare earths supplies. The metals are used in everything from electric car motors and electronics to oil refining.

This corroborates the widespread assessment that REE exports are hardly the only outlet for such strategic materials. In order for China to more effectively leverage its strategic position, downstream products will also be included. The dollar value of US imports of two key categories of downstream product, NdFeB and SmCo magnets, is larger than the total imports of REEs from China.

A second key conclusion, according to Deutsche Bank's Michael Hsueh, reflected the idea that traceability and illegal mining must be considered as possible circumvention modes. Traceability was tagged by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) as an objective in January, along with suspension of licenses for companies violating limits. While China has yet to provide a description of the tracing technology, traceability would be doubly helpful in preventing the use of illegally mined materials domestically and enforcing any export ban. Illegal production was estimated at 40-50 kt in rare-earth oxides in 2015, compared to official output of 105kt that year.

In terms of timing, Deutsche believes that a post-G20 escalation of the trade conflict would likely be required for China to enact any export ban. From China's point of view, the ideal scenario would preferably involve a short period of export limits. Without the assurance of sustainably high prices, the rest of world is more likely to remain cost challenged and deficient in investment. In this regard, the ability to engineer rapid price declines is just as much of a 'weapon' as price spikes. To the extent that ex-China investment was hampered by the decline in prices after 2011, this suggests ex-China incentive costs are likely above the USD 40/t level for PrNd oxide.

Trade War: India Slaps Tariffs On US Fruits and Nuts Reader 06/18/2019 (Tue) 12:20:38 Id: 30aebf [Preview] No. 14912 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
India has slapped retaliatory tariffs of up to 120% on 28 U.S. goods totaling $240 million, including almonds, apples, chickpeas, and walnuts.

The tariffs were initially proposed in response to President Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum imposed last year, and then enacted following the White House's June 1 decision to eliminate trade privileges India enjoyed under the Generalized System of Preferences, a program that is meant to help developing countries.

India called the president's actions “unfortunate” and said the tariffs, announced Sunday and set to go into effect on June 21, were needed to protect its economic interests.

India requested last year that the White House exempt it from the 25% tariff on steel and the 10% tariff on aluminum, but the administration never granted the exemption. The program had previously allowed duty-free imports of up to $5.6 billion on goods from India.

Overall, trade between the two countries was reported about $142.1 billion in 2018. India purchased $543 million in almonds from the U.S. last year, according to the Department of Agriculture, making it the largest single buyer. India was also the second-largest buyer of U.S. apples, purchasing $156 million over the same period.

Likely Another False Flag Attack On Oil Tankers, Blamed On Iran Of-course Reader 06/13/2019 (Thu) 15:19:12 Id: 28e154 [Preview] No. 14893 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Roughly one month after the US accused Iran of attacking Saudi- and UAE-docked oil tankers with naval mines in the Strait of Hormuz, two oil tankers were attacked in the Sea of Oman (not far from where the prior attacks occurred), leaving both ships seriously damaged, Bloomberg reports.

So far, no casualties have been reported. The attack left one of the ships "ablaze and adrift," according to the Associated Press.

The Front Altair, the Marshall Islands flag tanker damaged in Thursday's attacks, has now sunk, according to Iranian television. Later, others denied these reports.

If accurate, the sinking could have a serious impact on oil prices and the environment, as the ship contained twice the amount of oil as Exxon-Valdez.

And just like that... war with Iran is now almost assured.

Reported attacks on Japan-related tankers occurred while PM @AbeShinzo was meeting with Ayatollah @khamenei_ir for extensive and friendly talks.

Suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning.

Iran's proposed Regional Dialogue Forum is imperative.

Deliberate Destabilization: US Government Importing Ebola Infected Human Garbage From Congo Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 14:03:36 Id: 1cc12d [Preview] No. 14910 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

It is a medical fact that people of African descent have enhanced natural immunity to various viral infections, including Ebola. In fact, migrants from Africa may carry Ebola and show no symptoms whatsoever. This simple, irrefutable fact appears to be completely unknown to all U.S. doctors, journalists and CDC “experts” who claim Ebola can’t possibly be carried to the U.S. from Congo because, they often explain, nobody is showing any symptoms.

Yet it is a well-known medical fact that Ebola carriers from Africa may be entirely symptom-free. If you don’t believe me, go back to the June 27, 2000 article in the New York Times, authored by Lawrence K. Altman. The headline is, “People Carrying Ebola, in Some Cases, May Be Free of Symptoms.”

http://archive.fo/McRLB
https://www.nytimes.com/2000/06/27/world/people-carrying-ebola-in-some-cases-may-be-free-of-symptoms.html

“The Ebola virus… can also infect without producing illness, according to a new finding by African and European scientists,” reported the NYT. “They found that the Ebola virus could persist in the blood of asymptomatic infected individuals for two weeks after they were first exposed to an infected individual. How much longer the virus can persist is unknown.”

Citing a study published in The Lancet and authored by Dr. E. M. Leroy, the NYT continues: https://doi.org/10.1086/514321

Scientists have known that Ebola usually spreads from an infected person to another individual and through contamination in clinics or hospitals. The new finding suggests that some cases may result from healthy carriers. How often is unknown.

Dr. Leroy’s team said another public health concern was transmission of Ebola virus from healthy carriers through sex. Other scientists have detected Ebola in semen.

Want To Prevent Cancer? Eat A Lot of Aged Garlic Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 14:02:28 Id: c9e627 [Preview] No. 14909 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Daily consumption of food supplements with anticancer potential has become a way to prevent and manage cancer. Aged garlic is one of the superfoods known to fight cancer. A review of studies published in the Chinese Journal of Natural Medicines confirmed that aged garlic can be used as a promising daily food supplement for preventing and treating cancer because of its compound called S-allylmercaptocysteine (SAMC).

There is growing evidence that supports a link between garlic consumption and decreased cancer incidence. Notably, aged garlic extract (AGE) has stronger anticancer activities than that of fresh garlic, because it is enriched with AGE-specific organosulfur compounds, including SAMC.

In this review, researchers from Fujian Normal University, Shenzhen Third People’s Hospital, and The University of Hong Kong gathered and evaluated existing studies on SAMC and its anticancer potential. They summarized the up-to-date mechanistic pathways associated with the anti-proliferative, anti-metastatic and pro-apoptotic effects of SAMC in various cancer models.

Based on the evidence gathered, the researcher found that SAMC can protect against cancer because of its ability to eliminate reactive oxygen species (ROS) and increase antioxidant enzymes. SAMC also exhibits anti-tumor effects by activating mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), scavenging active oxygen, and inhibiting inflammation. Moreover, SAMC can induce Bcl-2 family imbalance to cause programmed cell death of tumor cells. It can also inhibit tumor cell proliferation and suppress tumor cell invasiveness. Additionally, it can increase the chemosensitivity of cancer cells.

AGE has been studied most often for its ability to prevent cardiovascular disease. Aged garlic is made by diluting garlic in alcohol without heat. Through this aging process, unique and powerful compounds like SAMC and other S-allyl compounds are produced. AGE protects against cardiovascular disease in various ways:

Prevents plaque buildup: AGE can help reverse early heart disease by eliminating plaque buildup from artery walls. When plaque builds up inside the arteries, atherosclerosis occurs. Plaque can harden and narrow the arteries. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition has found that people with metabolic syndrome aged between 40 and 75 who took 2,400 mg of AGE every day experienced slower plaque buildup compared to those who took a placebo. Furthermore, AGE supplementation caused a regression of low-attenuation plaque or soft plaque. Reducing this type of plaque has a dramatic stabilizing effect on atherosclerosis. AGE’s ability to inhibit and reverse arterial plaque buildup is an important factor in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. (Related: Aged garlic is incredibly good for your heart.)

Improves endothelial function and vascular elasticity: A study in the journal Nutrition revealed that AGE also improved endothelial function and vascular elasticity – both of which are important factors in preventing atherosclerosis. In the study, participants subject to occupational stress took either a placebo or AGE plus coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) daily. One year after, those who took AGE plus CoQ10 experienced a reduction in vascular stiffness and a substantial improvement in endothelial function.

Fights inflammation: AGE also prevents atherosclerosis because of its ability to reduce inflammation. Chronic inflammation contributes to the formation and progression of atherosclerotic plaques, and supplementation with AGE fights inflammation.

Reduces cholesterol levels: In addition to reducing inflammation, AGE supplementation can also lower blood low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol, according to a study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition ESPEN.

Polar Silk Road Could Be A Gamechanger For Natural Gas Industry Reader 06/16/2019 (Sun) 09:08:43 Id: 1e4112 [Preview] No. 14907 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
It’s been well over a year since the then-United States Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis accused Russia and China of being “revisionist powers” each working its way toward making a power grab on the world stage and announced that the U.S. would be shifting its international relations focus away from fighting terrorism and instead prioritize what Mattis referred to as a "great power competition." Now, 17 months later, it looks like Mattis’ nightmares are coming true as Russia and China have increasingly worked together in defiance of the Trump administration in a kind of diplomatic ‘marriage of convenience’.

Just this month, Chinese President Xi Jinping made his eighth official visit to Russia in a trip highly publicized in both Russian and Chinese media. “This year marks the 70th anniversary of our diplomatic ties and China’s ties with Russia are deepening at a time of profound change in the global geopolitical landscape,” remarked former Chinese ambassador to Britain Ma Zhengang, as quoted by the South China Morning Post.

One of the most current examples of this newly strengthened relationship between Beijing and Moscow is a new joint venture between state-owned shipping corporations in Russia and China to create a “Polar Silk Road” in the Arctic Sea. a year ago, officials in Beijing announced that China would be pursuing investment across the Arctic Route to encourage commercial shipping through the northern passage as a part of the country’s Belt and Road Initiative. Belt and Road is a massive undertaking involving investments programs worth trillions of dollars, which will go toward connecting Asia and Europe by sea, rail, and road to promote more trade between the continents.

This week, reporting by the Wall Street Journal this week tells us that “China is breaking into Arctic transport through a joint venture between the country’s biggest ocean carrier, Cosco Shipping Holdings Co., and its Russian counterpart PAO Sovcomflot to move natural gas from Siberia to Western and Asian markets.” Both China and Russia are members of the Arctic Council, which the Wall Street Journal describes as “an intergovernment forum [...] which considers development issues and sailing rights as the polar ice recedes” before going on to say that China, in particular, has “made investment [in Arctic shipping lanes] a priority to advance its energy and shipping interests”.

The new venture will ship liquefied natural gas from central northern Siberia’s gargantuan Yamal LNG project to a laundry list of destinations including Northern Europe, Japan, South Korea, and China. The initiative will begin with a fleet of a dozen ice-breaking tankers, and Cosco’s China Shipping LNG Investment Co. will reportedly operate another nine tankers.

"We [China] imported about 57 million tons of LNG last year and we are looking for a steady supply of around four million a year coming from Yamal,” a Chinese shipping executive told the Wall Street Journal.

“We also look to move container ships through the northern sea route as warming temperatures melt the ice making it easier to navigate.”

This move comes on the back of months of Russian gas flooding European markets, keeping gas prices low, exacerbating an already-existing gas glut in the continent, and at least partially edging the United States out of the European natural gas market. As reported by Bloomberg, experts at Citigroup surmise that Russia’s increased shipments of natural gas to Europe are a kind of stress test for the United States. A Citigroup report says that Russia is intentionally keeping gas prices low because Moscow is likely “testing the response of the global gas market in a low price environment, especially U.S. LNG export elasticity.”

Now that Russia is strengthening its natural gas trade with China on top of its aggressive flooding of European markets with its cheap liquefied natural gas, the United States has more cause for concern than ever.

(looks like it cut off... so the rest here)

Now that Russia is strengthening its natural gas trade with China on top of its aggressive flooding of European markets with its cheap liquefied natural gas, the United States has more cause for concern than ever. Especially when taking into consideration that China’s thirst for natural gas is “almost infinite” as it tries to move away from its long legacy of dirty coal-based power and its middle class continues to boom, along with its demand for energy.
