TV Presenter Warns Global Food Shortages Will Lead to Cannibalism

And he only appeared to be half-joking.

TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson said that global food shortages caused by the war in Ukraine could eventually lead to cannibalism, and he only appeared to be half-joking.

The Grand Tour presenter, who owns a famous farm shop in the Cotswolds, made the comments in his latest Sunday Times piece.

Clarkson said the situation caused by the war in Ukraine was leading him to suffer sleepless nights and “a few chin-scratching moments of despair.”

The former Top Gear presenter, who also owns a farm which was the basis of his hit Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm, says more and more farmers in the UK are allowing their fields to lie fallow due to soaring fertiliser costs.

“The problem is that next year many farmers will decide that, because of the costs involved, they’ll use less fertiliser,” he wrote. “Some will doubtless try to use none at all. Others will try to use cardboard or lawn clippings or faeces instead. Either way they will produce less food. Some farmers — I know of three in my area alone — have already decided to fallow their fields next year and grow nothing at all.”

“And this is not just happening in the UK. It’s a global phenomenon and it could well result in there being maybe 20 per cent less food in the shops than is necessary. That’s bad. And then it gets worse because, between them, Russia and Ukraine grow more than a quarter of global wheat exports.”

Clarkson worries the world is “hurtling down a well-watered slide into the pit of hunger, misery and death.”

He also slammed the government for failing to adequately respond to the cost of living crisis and cautioned that people can “live without heat or clothing or even sex,” but that “they cannot live without food.”

“Hunger makes people eat their neighbours,” wrote Clarkson.

Some food products, including sunflower oil, are already being rationed in the UK due to Ukraine being a major source for sunflower seeds.

As we highlighted earlier, Italian League party leader Matteo Salvini warned that worsening food shortages could cause 20 million African migrants to flood Europe if a ceasefire in Ukraine is not agreed by the end of this month.

“Without peace there will be famine in the autumn and 20 million Africans will be ready to go,” he said.

In his article, Clarkson pointed out that “nearly a third of the wheat Ukraine grows goes to Africa, and it won’t be getting any this summer,” warning that the existing migrant crisis will represent a “trickle” compared to the tsunami that could be around the corner.

New Bill Would Mandate Federal Reserve to Promote “Racial and Economic Justice”

Two tier financial system in America?

Published

A new bill would extend the Federal Reserve’s mandate to promote “racial and economic justice,” prompting concerns as to whether this would lead to discrimination.

“H.R. 2543 would expand the Federal Reserve’s existing dual mandate of maintaining price stability and full employment to focus on promoting “racial and economic justice in borrowing, housing, and lending,” reports Valiant News.

If the bill is passed, the Fed would be responsible for maintaining “racial equity,” which would potentially create a two tier economy, one for white people and another for non-whites in America.

“In effect, the passage of this law would make racial equity an integral part of the Fed’s mandate,” writes Jose Nino.

As we previously highlighted, the Fed encouraged Americans to combat soaring meat price inflation by swapping turkeys for soybean products during Thanksgiving.

Biden administration loyalists have run cover for the Federal Reserve by blaming soaring inflation on everything from failure to properly condemn January 6 to nationalism itself.

Earlier this month, the Fed announced its “biggest interest rate hike in more than a quarter century,” although the three-quarters of a percentage point raise brings the current 1.5%-1.75% rate nowhere near the 20% rate enacted by Paul Volcker in the early 1980’s.

The Biden administration has relentlessly denied that the country is heading for a recession, despite a cost of living crisis and multiple other financial indications that this is about to happen.

Video: Reporter Asks White House If Americans’ Only Choice Is “$5 A Gallon Gas Or A $61,000 Electric Car?”

“Sounds like a painful transition”

The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Thursday to explain why the Biden Administration’s only solution to soaring gas prices seems to be to ask Americans to deal with it or spend upwards of $55,000 on an electric vehicle.

“A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said to Jean-Pierre, referencing the several times Biden officials and the president himself have touted a ‘transition’ to green energy.

“We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” Jean-Pierre responded, sounding like a broken record.

“Yeah but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy further inquired.

“That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she responded.

Jean-Pierre went on to tout Biden’s so called gas tax holiday, which even Democrats immediately dumped on Thursday:

After repeatedly blaming Vladimir Putin for America’s soaring gas prices and cost of living, and then attacking American energy companies to boot, Biden spent Thursday blaming gas station owners for high prices:

Seems like everyone except him and his administration is to blame.

    Pathetic: Only 11 Per Cent Believe Biden Narrative That Putin is to Blame For Record Gas Prices

    Majority blame the president.

    Only 11 per cent of Americans believe the Biden administration’s narrative that Vladimir Putin is to blame for record high gas prices, with the majority blaming Biden’s poor energy policies instead.

    A Rasmussen poll finds that 52 per cent of respondents think unaffordable gas prices are the fault of the president, with the vast majority rejecting the ‘Putin price hike’ excuse.

    The survey also found that 80 per cent of Republicans blame Biden for the energy crisis, while 54 per cent of Independents also say responsibility lies with the occupant of the Oval Office.

    29 per cent of respondents who didn’t blame Putin or Biden said greedy oil companies were the culprit.

    After the Biden administration’s attempt to blame the Russian leader failed to land, the White House has switched its rhetoric to start blaming oil companies, with Biden asserting the industry is “making more money than God.”

    The poll reveals that Americans are also unimpressed with the media’s attempt to prop up the failing Biden economy, with just 11 per cent saying it has gotten better, with 57 per cent rating his economic performance as “poor.”

    Biden loyalists have become increasingly absurd in trying to explain away gas price hikes and inflation, with former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers blaming people who downplay what happened on January 6.

    “The banana Republicans who are saying that what happened on January 6th was nothing or OK are undermining the basic credibility of our country’s institutions and that in turn feeds through, uh, for inflation,” said Summers.

    BlackRock CEO Larry Fink also ludicrously claimed “nationalism” was to blame for inflation, asserting, “The rise– whether you call it nationalism or the rise of this belief that we have to focus on communities that have been devastated by globalization, we need to find ways of creating better jobs for more Americans, that in itself is inflationary.”

    As we highlighted earlier, more emergency services in the U.S. are having to limit the amount of 911 calls that they are responding to in person because of record high gas prices.
