The Netherlands is putting its own farmers out of work.

You read that right. As part of a climate change agreement via the WEF and EU, the government of the Netherlands has imposed strict carbon and nitrogen limits on its own farmers. It will put many out of work.

The farmers have been protesting and becoming more and more ungovernable for days now, but you haven't heard anything about it in the news, and you won't. It doesn't fit the agenda.

5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds[a] of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds[c] of barley for a day’s wages,[d] and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
Rev 6: 5-6

This is the verse for the third seal and the black rider, often interpreted as famine. Some feel it says that the common people will suffer as their food gets more and more expensive and scarce while the wealthy will not be harmed at all, oil and wine being luxury or wealthy goods.

And here we see something like it in action. The WEF and EU are actually imposing more food restrictions by creating rules that cut the food supply by putting farmers out of work in a time of already acknowledged scarcity.

You won’t see it on any of the alphabet networks, but a protest movement is exploding in the Netherlands after the government moved to shut down farms in order to “fight” climate change. The contentious move, pushed by the World Economic Forum, was enacted as part of an EU agreement that seeks to limit the release of nitrogen.

Farmers are generally acting like BLM over this, and I am generally conflicted. Their rising anger probably has to do with their own government's response:

The Dutch government said “The honest message... is that not all farmers can continue their business,”.

Basically, learn to code.

So the lesson that should be learned is that the elites have their vision and we don't figure into it.

Shut down coal and other power plants and get blackouts. Learn to code.

Shut down the farmers and starve. Learn to code.

Of all the aspects of the green agenda, none is more damaging and suicidal than putting in arbitrary provisions that limit the production of food across the globe. I’m not in support of targeting anything to “lower emissions” because I believe it’s spitting into the wind to make wealthy elites feel better about their lifestyles. Yet, even if I did support that agenda, the last place that should be targeted is the food sector. While European leaders are virtue signaling about the temperature possibly rising a few degrees over the next hundred years, they should be concerned about feeding their populations before their countries descend into apocalyptic chaos.

You want to know why your food costs so much and there isn't enough? It's stuff like this. It's not an accident; it's by design, and if you vote left, this is on your shoulders.

The guy that operates the Ice Age Farmer channel on YouTube has been keeping tabs on these types of initiatives to deliberately scale back agriculture. A similar program has been adopted in Germany, as per Ice Age Farmer.

Also, this topic is a frequent fear porn subject for WEF and aligned politicians (see: John Kerry).

I guess now we're learning more about the "Dark Winter" that Biden predicted shortly after taking office.

It appears that the sanctions agaisnt Russia was a very bad strategic decision.
Russia provides the largest supply of fertilizers which are important for Europe's agriculture scene.

I hear you.

They are using BLM tactics, but they are also being told they can't continue their livelihood in a time when we are being told there is a food shortage. I mean it's not like the farmland of the Ukraine is being used. It's lying fallow now for obvious reasons, so isn't that enough of a "carbon and nitrogen" cut at least for the time being?

I'd say it's stupidity except I'm afraid it's deep, deep malice.

Part of the problem is few modern people know what hunger is or have ever experienced it, even willingly. They falsely believe since things have been so cushy for 70 years they will continue. Wrong. When you are starving you will be unable to even get up to go vote anyone out of office, never mind tossing them out on their asses like they deserve. I think movies like Hunger Games have helped to allow people to place such insane possibilities in the realm of conspiracy theories and feel they can safely ignore it. Once again, WRONG.

ETA: Go Boers! Nice to see the farmers pushing back with everything they have, they know this is for all the marbles.

People depend to much on other people to survive anymore. I’d rather catch and eat a fresh trout over a 20pc chicken nugget meal anyday of the week. Go foraging in the woods for a day with someone with a decent amount of outdoor experience and you would be amazed at what you go home with. I regularly go picking popinki mushrooms for spaghetti sauce and can easily bring home a large garbage bag full of mushrooms in a few hours.

I’m not very knowledgeable about canning/preserving but my wife cans pretty much any meat , vegetable or fruit that you can think of.

I guess Jesus was right when he said teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Why not farm hydroponically under artificial lights? It's basically just "green" electricity use and the nitrogen never enters into the environment. It can be done indoors in old factory buildings on brown zone property and use GMO crops. No tilling, no soil erosion, no nitrogen pollution, no pesticides, no use of any farmlands, it can be patented GMO plants and they can ship it off in electric vehicles. Sounds like a win win win for the liberal progressives.

I doubt we will ever hear that sales pitch though.

I have heard about the farmer protests in the Netherlands here in Germany two or three days ago but you could kill me, i can´t remember exactly where i got that bit of information from. I believe it was a comment in one of the forums i read from time to time. But i know to 100% it wasn´t in the presstitutes propaganda MSM.

You are right that this isn´t reported by their mass media to fool us people. Seeing this in Germany, maybe at the 8 o clock propganda news Tagesschau, could give some of the people here the idea to do the same. I am pretty sure that germans are the last to protest and maybe even riot but if something like this starts here it sometimes ends up with the whole world in flames, leaving only debris and ash. Average germans are submissive, love to obey and to report to their overlords about fellow citizens who dare to think something else than they grey mass has to think as wished by these overlords.

I feel that they slowly "prepare" us, bit by bit, for what is coming soon: Blackouts (had one last week for an hour, talked to others outside of my city and many said that this is getting more and more since 2020, here an hour, there an hour...) because of not using every solution that is available. Like starting North Stream II, reactivating nuclear power plants, using our own coal again. The hostile WEF agents in the german government, the "green" new dealers and the other corrupt traitors in the german government simply don´t want that.

They rather want us to freeze for that damned corrupt nazi sh!thole Ukraine instead, want us to starve because of their alleged "green" world and climate savior fantasies, are de-industrializing us because of their silly dreams of "green" energy, solar and wind power. And we mustn´t forget all these transatlantic controlled traitors that work for the interests of the USA, against the interests of the german population and Germany. North Stream II isn´t running because the USA doesn´t want us to buy gas and oil (as the USA still does and as even the Ukraine still does) from russia but we should buy their expensive effing fracking gas instead that needs to be shipped her by climate saving supertankers. Somehow it feels now that Bilderberg-Davos-WEF-Merkel was installed to fullfill the Morgenthau plan and the "new" government is more than happy to continue her work.

They want us peasants to sit in the dark because of their fantasies, they want us to freeze, they want us to starve, to lose our jobs etc. Because it doesn´t hit them. A few days ago they gave themselves a raise again, these traitors who call themselves politicians, get 300 Euros more per month because "everything is more expensive now, because of the crisis". Those that are guilty for what is happening right now, for all the different crisis that hit us all at once now and soon, spit and laugh right in our faces because their evil plan works. Not at least because of the stupidity of the submissive grey, stupid mass.

I really, really have the first time in my life the strong feeling that this will end not only with riots but even with a civil war, with freedom fighters declared by TPTB and their propaganda mass media as nazis and right wing terrorists. Like they do now with everybody who isn´t trimmed to official line. No matter if corona BS, energy frisis BS, shortages BS. Everybody who dares to critize the official line will be silnced, cancelled. Even judges, lawyers, the last few real politicians left, university professors etc. Happened since the begin of that corona BS and is continued now with every dissenting opinion. They attack bloggers and free, independent journalists so the only truth that stays is the official line. Yesterday i read that they started to close down paypal accounts of people who report what they see and not only what TPTB wants them to report.

We, the 99%, are at war because the 1% started that war. The 1% wins battle by battle because most of the 99% are still asleep behind their rainbow colored sunglasses. Still asleep because of counting unicorns. They simply don´t want to see the elephant behind the unicorns in the room. I guess that makes it easier for simple minds to deal with it: If it isn´t there for me i don´t have to be afraid of what might come. Till it is too late and many will be hit unprepared.

People should realize that our generations have seen the best times, from now on it will become very dark because we trusted politicians, lobbyists, the ultra-rich, trusted the pharma criminals, the so called experts in the propaganda mass media, trusted "leaders", trusted elections, trusted everybody who told us what we wanted to hear. Without questioning anything and demonizing those that dare to question something because they are not on official line.

We should try and make it as hard as possible for them to fullfill their evil dreams of their world order with 1% overlords and 99% slaves. With the power of the masses the 99% crowd has. Maybe a general strike for the beginning, we simply should stop to make the money they need to create China2.0 for us, for their "wars" they create to use them as an excuse of what in reality is Great Reset and Green New Deal, for their climate BS, for their PC BS, for their cancel culture BS, for their freedom destroying BS, for their lies, for their crimes...

I do this in a small scale since a while at home and if i can do it, everybody else can do it. A deep water culture system is the most save one even if the power stops for a while because the roots still are in the fertilized water, only the air pumps and the light would be off for a while.

Had tomatos for a test, different peppers, zuchini, cucumbers, different lettuce and i don´t know what i forgot. Everything grew and gave me fruits. Now i am going for fresh lettuce whenever i want of out of my diy grow room and the grow tent is waiting for the arrive of the "special herbs" seeds. I guess "sports cigarette tobacco" will be as good as sugar, alcohol, tobacco when SHTF and we have to barter again instead of using money in supermarkets to buy the stuff we need.

Always be prepared xD

Dutch farmers are large greenhouse operations eating giga watts of electricity.
When you buy a tomato or cucumber in Europe it's most likely out of there. And it has no taste. It looks perfect tho. Artificial, industrial, sometimes hydroponic, full of chemicals. They are the main consumer of fertilizer I'd imagine. Maybe they cause problems. They certainly dont care about sustainability.
And the European market is based on management. There are quotas. My country was a major exporter of sugar. When we entered the EU it had to stop. You may think what you want about the system just keep it in mind when you are sniffing a conspiracy against food chain in the air

If you were literally taxed 2x the entire cost of raising/selling a cow for every cow you owned you would be pissed too.

Let me spell it out for you,

Farmers recently had several laws passed against them. 1 of those laws is 3500 stationary TAX against any COW on their farm, every year.

Based on a quick google search of the weight of a cow. e-production

The amount of beef produced per cow has seen an 18% improvement over the past 20 years. The average cow size across all breeds is 1,390 lbs., with less than 100 lbs. separating the heaviest and lightest breeds.

Now let us begin, (I want to quickly note that this was NOT in the 'build back better' package. So politico facts was correct on that, it was in a different package that was passed through congress one of their 'trillian dollar' spending bills which included payments to americans, and payments for vaccines - which is how/why they are claiming 'misinformation'. This tax WAS passed, and then buried beneth a mountain of bull#. WSJ and More taxes "catastrophic")

Just for the hell of it i'm going to toss in an average diet for that cow at a lower then 'weight' average of 1100lb cow instead of 1350 like the 'average' claim is.. so this will induce malenutrition in said cow.. but i want to give you an idea.,1%2 0oz%20potassium%20chloride%206%201%20oz%20salt

Sample Diets
Here are some sample diets to consider for feeding your cattle. These might not be optimal for your situation, but illustrate how you can build diets out of different components.

For a 1100 lb cow per day:

5 lbs alfalfa grass hay
20 lbs barley
2 oz limestone
2 oz 2:1 mineral
1 oz salt
The cost to feed 1,000 pound (non lactating) brood cows is $500 or $2.81 per day with $250/ton hay during the non grazing season. If you have a longer grazing season or lower priced hay, your costs will be less, per cow. If you feed hay during lactation, plan on spending more, since you will need higher quality hay for the cow and calf, if they are not on grass. 20will%20cost%20between%20%242%2C000,not%20they%20are%20dairy%20cows%20or%20beef%20cows.

Beef heifers will generally cost about $2,500 to $3,000 per head with an average price of $2,800 per cow. A calf will generally cost based on the weight of the calf. CWT is the unit measurement used to price cows and stands for 100 pounds. The cwt for a beef cow is between $135 and $165. That’s an average of $140 per 100 pounds. A 500-pound calf would cost about $700.

Keep in mind a sick cow can cost 1000's of dollars because if 1 cow gets sick they ALL need to be tested.. Just like a dog or a cat farmers have to get tests done on their animals to ensure safety with a series of shots/visits&more. They also have land tax to calculate in the raising of this animal, as well as their home, food regulation fees, machine/operation costs/fuel/electricity) All of which I did NOT calculate here,

Current taxes are as followed: 3500 per head of cattle, $2400 per pig and $1300 per chicken tax is applied. (This was the democrat's brilliant idea to pay for your and the world's vaccine. "Where will we get the money to buy the vaccines?" - "We will take it from the farmers".)

Lets break it down even further,

An average Chicken lays 1 egg a day, good farmers will give them off the winter and rotate their flock to a 'winter/spring' group'. But for the sake of this lets pretend they laid an egg every day. 1300/365=3.56. That means that chicken has to lay 3 and a half eggs to break even against the new tax price.This is again not including vet, cleaning, food, etc supplies that are needed to maintain a large chicken coop. This is also PER CHICKEN TAX.

So if your government decides to tax you 3.5 x the amount that goes against nature and possibilities within an animal capabilities(not including supplies used to raise it) you'd be pissed too.

The government is officially trying to bankrupt farmers. In order to snatch up the farmland, to give to CHINA.

You have to remember even crop only farmers have loans on most farm equipment that often range in the $100,000-200,000:

Most of them actually have to use their house and farm as collateral to even afford the equipment being used, and the average farm needs a minimum of 2-3 tractors at all times because they have a tendancy to overheat and other issues that gum up the works.

So before you even begin to think that these farmers make bank. When you hear that farmer's actually bought their own equipment. It means they sacrificed for it. They don't have 12 cars, 3 houses like doctors and lawyers often do. But I will also state this one last fact. If you make $25,000 a year, and you recieved 2 checks a year.. your check would look pretty big too at $12,500

Here's a couple of 'tax' links for those that own farm land.
tax per acre of farmland - more then most morgages.

I want you to keep in mind it cost a LOT to run farmlands. But before we get started, I want to point this article out in 2017 (unbiased no farmer issues via goverment) How much it costs to get started as a farmer.

The equipment requirement could be an extensive discussion; however, I'll try to keep it as short as possible. One could buy all new machines, but to get started, let’s assume the acquisition of decent used equipment – about 5 to 10 years old.

The basic list would include: a combine with corn head and grain platform for $175,000; a big tractor for plowing and planting at 125K; a grain truck for 60K; a planter that runs about 75K; a grain drill for 40K; a disk at around 30K; a chisel-plow for 30K; a field cultivator at 25K; a pull-type sprayer costs 35K; a grain dryer is 30K; a utility tractor for brush-hogging/ditching/grading at 35K; a grain cart for 15K; a trailer at around 15K; an ATV for 10K; and a full complement of tools costs 15K.

We may be missing something here, but that’s already $715,000 in equipment.

Keep in mind, none of this includes healthcare cost, food or every day expenses for living. Let alone the 2x taxes per person for owning a business.
