Experts Warns of Coming Food Crisis as Russian Aggression Continues

Things are about to get pretty scarce…and in a hurry.

Published

The Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the alleged “genocide” that’s being committed, certainly isn’t affecting only the citizens of Europe and their neighbors.  No, this is a conflict with a massive global reach, and the ripple effect could continue to grow for weeks and months to come.

The most cogent example of this are gas prices, which have soared in the US and beyond on account of the Russian aggression, which has made it untenable for nations around the world to continue doing business with Moscow.

Now, as Ukraine’s daily routine is upended, and violently, there are fears that a global food crisis could be in the offing.

Both Russia and Ukraine account for a significant portion of the global grain supply, with both nations also having significant roles within the supply of fertiliser, as well as its raw materials.

However, with trade grinding to a halt as a result of the latest stage in the ongoing conflict, the head of one major fertiliser company is sounding off alarm bells.

“Half the world’s population gets food as a result of fertilisers… and if that’s removed from the field for some crops, [the yield] will drop by 50%,” Svein Tore Holsether, who heads up agri company Yara International, told the BBC.

“For me, it’s not whether we are moving into a global food crisis – it’s how large the crisis will be,” he went on to say.

And while work is underway to avoid such a crisis, there is no guarantee that there will be success.

The Yara International boss also is reported to have pointed out that around a quarter of key nutrients used in food production come from Russia, with sanctions now looking likely to further constrain in supply.

“At the same time we’re doing whatever we can do at the moment to also find additional sources,” he emphasised. “But with such short timelines it’s limited.”

The Russian incursion into Ukraine has now lasted ten days, and has been complicated by the potentially-terminally-ill Russian President belligerently threatening the world with nuclear war should they attempt to stop him.

EEK ELON! Musk Sexual Assault Story Comes to Light Ahead of Twitter Deal

Musk claims that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”.

Just as Elon Musk was set to make an unprecedented mark on the social media landscape, his proverbial train has been derailed.

Musk, who has been bickering with Twitter over their phony user data, was set to drop $44 billion on the deal, when he was suddenly sideswiped by a SpaceX-related sexual assault allegation.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk denied a sexual assault claim from a former flight attendant, whom the company reportedly paid $250,000 as part of a severance agreement in 2018.

Musk, in a Thursday tweet following the story, claimed the story should be “viewed through a political lens.”

The attendant worked on a contract basis in the cabin crew for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of exposing his erect penis to her, rubbing her leg without consent, and offering to buy her a horse in exchange for an erotic massage, according to Business Insider.

It gets creepier…

A declaration signed by the attendant’s friend detailed the incident, which reportedly took place in 2016. Email correspondence and other records, which the friend provided Business Insider, reportedly corroborate the claims. The attendant reportedly told her friend that SpaceX encouraged her to get licensed as a masseuse, so she could give Musk massages. She said Musk propositioned her during one such massage.

Musk claimed that the story was a “politically-motivated hit piece”, and pointed to his decades of time in the public eye with no scandals as corroborating evidence of his alleged innocence.

NBC Finally Admits That Hunter Biden Laptop Story is Real

Objective journalism, this was not.

Published

on

NBC

The selective ambivalence of the mainstream media is just diet lies, we must always remember this.  It’s like poisoning a healthy cereal but only telling folks about the “essential vitamins and minerals”, leaving off the part about the cyanide.

So when the infotainment industry decides to simply ignore a story, arbitrarily, they are withholding the bigger, more important truth.  The full truth.

Such is the story of the Hunter Biden “laptop from Hell”, that the mainstream media wouldn’t talk about at all until Joe Biden was elected President.  To do so would cast doubt on his family’s ability to avoid nepotism and/or trouble, and may have swayed the 2020 election.

But now that there has been a significant amount of pressure put on them, they’re beginning to crack.

NBC News is the latest legacy news organization to offer delayed legitimacy to the Hunter Biden scandal after downplaying the revelations from his laptop during the 2020 presidential election.

NBC published a story Thursday headlined, “Analysis of Hunter Biden’s hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast,” citing documents showing the fortune he made while working for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, as well as through his business ties to a Chinese energy company. It also aired a package about the story Wednesday on “NBC Nightly News,” its flagship evening program.

The report also highlighted some of Hunter Biden’s expenditures showing he “spent more than $200,000 per month from October 2017 through February 2018 on luxury hotel rooms, Porsche payments, dental work and cash withdrawals.”

And then:

“NBC News obtained a copy of Biden’s laptop hard drive from a representative of Rudy Giuliani and examined Biden’s business dealings from 2013 to 2018 based on the information available on the hard drive and the scope of the documents released by the Senate,” the report stated.

This new report flies in the face of how NBC News and its sister cable network MSNBC covered the Hunter Biden laptop’s contents when the story was broken by the New York Post in 2020.

Objective journalism, this was not, and our nation must continue to demand better, lest we wish to fall into the propaganda dystopia that nations such as China and Russia are dealing with.
