The Geopolitics of Wheat. Is There a Grain of Truth in Any of It?

Was Africa threatened with famine due to the Ukrainian wheat blockade or not? From Martin Jay at strategic-culture.org:

The panic about African countries being starved of wheat seems to have been unjust and perhaps even fake news.

There was much anticipation about getting wheat sent from the Black Sea to Africa to prevent famines. So why haven’t African governments sent ships there?

Just recently Recep Erdogan of Turkey succeeded in bringing both Russia and the West to the negotiating table over wheat. Since virtually the beginning of Russian invasion in February of this year, the ports which normally export wheat to most of the world, have been blocked. Notably, Odessa port was entirely buffered by mines rendering it impossible for ships to enter nor leave.

Remarkably, a deal was struck very quickly after a number of heavyweights in the Middle East and North Africa reached out to Putin, pointing out that if wheat cannot reach many of these countries, there would be real consequences; food insecurity in many of these countries can quickly flare into political insurrection, terror groups forming and of course heightening numbers of migrants heading for the EU.

West’s Threats to African Countries Over Russian Oil Might Spark New Sanctions Against Moscow, by Martin Jay

The West is isolating itself more than Russia. From Martin Jay at strategic-culture.org:

The West got itself into this mess being wildly out of touch and delusional, with regards to its own so-called hegemony.

The emergence of Russia, China and India as emboldened new powers amid the Ukraine war is becoming more obvious each day. The West has really destroyed its last strand of credibility as the real power in a unipolar world, which, in reality is now multipolar with the East gaining and gaining.

Russia continues to garner more strength and influence seemingly without effort due to the colossal error of NATO and EU sanctions which continue to punish the citizens of those countries so much more than any Russian citizen – the most recent news just in that Spain is banning the use of air conditioning in parts of the country experiencing a heat wave!

And Russia acts more and more like a superpower on the world stage and so we shouldn’t be surprised, for example, that when only a matter of weeks of French troops pulling out of Mali a former colony of France’s, Russia rolls in with aircraft which it donates to the regime. That’s what superpowers do to keep their end of the bargain. Security support.

Africa Needs Conventional Fuels, Not Windmills and Solar Panels, by Manuel Tacanho

Have the do-gooders who think “Green Energy” is just the ticket for Africa ever spent even ten minutes with average citizens there and seen how they live? From Manuel Tacanho at mises.org:

The energy and climate goals that Western governments, the United Nations, and other organizations are pushing on Africa constitute a crippling blow to its economies. As the least developed region, Africa should unequivocally prioritize economic development. One would think that amid energy poverty in Africa, Western governments and “development” institutions would prioritize energy security for African countries over energy transition.

African countries must have reliable, abundant, and cheap energy (e.g., fossil fuels) to accelerate economic development. Fossil fuels power economies and people’s lives. To deny these countries the possibility of developing with fossil fuels by imposing climate goals that the Western world itself fails to achieve is hypocritical. And malicious.

Infertility: A Diabolical Agenda, by Dr. Joseph Mercola

They’re doing everything they can to get the population down to a Georgia-guidestone half-a-billion. From Dr. Joseph Mercola at theburningplatform.com:

Story at-a-glance

  • The World Health Organization began working on an anti-fertility vaccine in the 1970s, in response to perceived overpopulation. For 20 years, the WHO’s Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation worked with population control in mind
  • In 1993, the WHO finally announced a birth-control vaccine had successfully been created to help with “family planning.” The anti-fertility vaccine uses hCG conjugated (chemically bonded) to tetanus toxoid, used in the tetanus vaccine. As a result, a woman will develop antibodies against both tetanus and hCG
  • HCG is the first signal that tells the woman’s body she’s pregnant. In response to this signal, her ovaries then produce progesterone, which maintains the pregnancy to term. By combining hCG with tetanus toxoid, it causes this crucial pregnancy hormone to be attacked and destroyed by the woman’s own immune system
  • In 1995, the Catholic Women’s League of the Philippines won a court order halting a UNICEF tetanus program that was using tetanus vaccine laced with hCG. Three million women between the ages of 12 and 45 had by that time already been vaccinated. Anti-hCG-laced vaccines had also been found in at least four other countries

A Triple-Barreled Gun Is Destroying African Economies: Inflation, Government Debt, and Taxes, by Manuel Tacanho

You can lump the three under the general category of statism. That philosophy always has and always will destroy, not build. From Manuel Tacanho at mises.org:

Today it is conclusive that Africa’s socialist experiments failed, as did the state-led development approach. Not only was the heavily statist approach unable to develop African economies, but it made poverty worse. In this context of repressive state-driven economic systems, most African countries are trapped in a morass of high inflation, high debt, high taxation, high dependency, worsening poverty, food insecurity, chronic mass unemployment, and other pervasive problems.

Barrel One: High Inflation

Africa’s unstable and inflationary currencies have been a significant impediment to economic development because of their destabilizing and impoverishing effect. Organic and lasting economic growth must necessarily be driven by savings, not by debt, deficit spending, or money printing.

In the long run, inflation ends in the breakdown of the currency. This is what happened in Angola in the 1990s and in Zimbabwe in the first decade of the 2000s.

Evidence from the past and present, from developed and developing countries, unequivocally shows that inflation is a government and central bank policy that cannot go on forever and that does come to a catastrophic end, however long the run may be.

Is Africa the Covid Smoking Gun? By from Worldly Turnings blog

Just think, a whole continent with a very low Covid-19 vaccination rate, extensive use of prophylactic Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine, and very low Covid-19 case numbers and deaths. Also, this continent is quite poor and has few of what are considered the advantages of modern medicine in more developed parts of the world. It’s enough to make one suspicious of the officially approved narrative. From Worldly Turnings blog at worldlyturnings.blog:

Introduction. In October 2020 I wrote about the US healthcare system and how it is a total failure on Covid, allowing people to die without simple treatments for the Bioweapon dubbed Covid. A year later we have increased our hold on #1 slot on healthcare expenditures per capita. Nothing has improved and in many ways our healthcare establishment has gotten worse. Much worse. And, now we have the smoking gun case of Africa proving the possibly intentional manslaughter of people in the name of bad science, profiteering or worse – depopulation….

The most expensive healthcare system in the world (by a huge margin) is the United States. We have 45% higher healthcare expenses in our “free market” healthcare system than #2 in the world – Switzerland.

Strangely, and with barely a whimper from Americans that are going broke paying insane medical bills year after year, the USA ranks in the top 20 out of 195 countries for Covid mortality with 2368 deaths/1,000,000. This equates to roughly 140 Covid only deaths/1,000,000 using the 6% CDC figure obtained through the VAERS database. This is less than the median annual influenza deaths over 10 years – yet we have blithly crashed the world for the Great Reset. I digress.

Below are the lowest Covid death rate countries in the world.  Of the 38 countries with the lowest mortality rates are 28 countries located in the continent with the worst healthcare systems in the world – Africa.   How is this possible?

Lowest Covid 19 Mortality by Country (as of 12/6/21):

SOURCE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_pandemic_death_rates_by_country

Simple.   Most African countries allow use of inexpensive (i.e. non patentable US Pharmaceutical Pseudo-Vaccines) Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin for early treatment.   We don’t.  And, they also don’t fake death counts to establish totalitarian rule by a deadly vaccine and human segregation brainwashing experiment on the masses.

Security Will Ethiopia Become Biden’s Libya 2.0 or a Driver for an African Renaissance? By Matthew Ehret

Ethiopia’s government has shown insufficient subservience to the US government and you know what that means. Regime change! From Matthew Ehret at strategic-culture.org:

The situation in Ethiopia is rather simple to understand as long as you don’t believe western media spin doctors, Matthew Ehret writes.

Many westerners trying to make sense of the events in the “dark continent” of Africa have many barriers standing in the way of their minds and reality. This must be the case, for without such filters of spin proclaiming Africa’s problems to be self-induced (or the consequence of Chinese debt slavery), we in the west, might actually feel horrified enough to demand systemic change. We might come to recognize that the plight of Africa has less to do with Africa and more to do with an intentional program of depopulation, and exploitation of vital resources.

Despite a rich history and over a billion people living on the continent, Africa suffers from the lowest per capita rates of electricity and potable water in the world. Of the 30,000 children who die needlessly each day from preventable causes (disease, water availability, hunger, etc), the majority are from Africa. Living standards are in turn abysmally low for the 340 million Africans who live in extreme poverty while insufficient healthcare infrastructure, and sanitation has resulted in a massive rate of infant mortality that reaches as high as 80-100 deaths per 1000 for many African nations.

To the degree that certain uncomfortable facts are kept obscured, this façade has been maintained.

Recently, a stone has been thrown at the glass artifice of false narratives that has attempted to maintain the belief that Africa’s problems arise from authoritarian governments or “not enough democracy”.

The Covid-19 Omicron Variant: Towards a Fourth Wave Lockdown? Pretext to Introduce New Repressive Policy Measures, by Prof Michel Chossudovsky

More fake science and hysterical propaganda to justify still more repression, disease, and death. From Prof Michel Chossudovsky at lewrockwell.com:

Both the governments and the media in chorus are now engaged in a renewed fear campaign focussing on the emergence of a new  “deadly” SARS-CoV-2 variant.

Last May it was the Delta variant (B.1.617.2)which allegedly originated in India. And now it’s Omicron (B1.1.529) which, according to the WHO’s “technical advisory group” was first detected in South Africa. According to reports, Omicron has a “very unusual constellation of mutations”

Anthony Fauci is leading the disinformation campaign, already pointing to the need for restrictions on air travel.  Meanwhile US stock markets have dropped amid a new wave of Covid panic. 

In a contradictory statement, Fauci intimated that Omicron “is already in the United States but has yet to be detected”. 

“I would not be surprised if it is, we have not detected it yet, but when you have a virus that is showing this degree of transmissibility and you’re having travel-related cases they’ve noted in other places already, when you have a virus like this, it almost invariably is going to go all over,”  (NBC, November 26, 2021)

“Partial lockdowns” are already contemplated including bans on international travel. The stated intent is  to “save lives”.

In the UK, “…there are growing fears” that the newly discovered Omicron variant, “could impact Christmas”.

Rest assured, While “there’s no reason to panic,” says Dr. Anthony Fauci, the new Omicron variant must “be taken seriously and warrants the newly imposed travel ban against South Africa and seven neighboring countries.” (CNN)

A travel ban against Africa, using the Covid-19 omicron variant as a pretext, could also have devastating social and economic impacts on the African Continent, including the disruption of trade relations. Is there a hidden agenda?

Moreover, it is worth noting that throughout sub-Saharan Africa, large sectors of the population have refused the vaccine. The percentage of the population which is vaccinated is exceedingly low. In this regard, Washington is intent upon enforcing the vaccine program in Africa on behalf of Big Pharma. Joe Biden has generously offered to deliver 570.4 million doses of the vaccine to developing countries, a large share of which will be channeled to Africa in the form of “foreign aid”.

No Mystery Why Some Countries Are Largely Flu/Covid-Free, by Steve Lendman

Africa gets a lot of sunshine (Vitamin D), people there take Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine to prevent diseases such as malaria, and only about 8 percent have been vaccinated. Africa has one of the lowest Covid case and death counts in the world. From Steve Lendman at alethonews.com:

Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras, Macedonia, Uttar Pradesh, India, Zimbabwe, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, parts of Brazil, and other nations have the following in common:

They use known safe and effective ivermectin for treating and curing flu/covid.

As a result, the incidence of the viral illness in these countries is low.

Their success is in stark contrast to surging outbreaks, serious cases, hospitalizations and deaths throughout the US/West, Israel and in other heavily mass-jabbed countries.

Since discovered and approved for human use, around 4 billion doses of ivermectin have been prescribed worldwide.

The WHO includes it on its list of Essential Medicines.

In 2015, co-developer of the drug, Dr. Satoshi Omura, won a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

In February, British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) — comprised of medical and scientific experts from over 15 countries — recommended global use of ivermectin as a verifiably safe and effective drug for preventing and treating flu/covid.

Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy director and BIRD organizer Dr. Tess Lawrie stressed the following:

“Ivermectin is already in use around the world and can reach the poorest people long before other expensive COVID treatments will ever get to them.”

“Ivermectin has an ever-increasing evidence base that shows that it works.”

“Even the prestigious Institute Pasteur in France has confirmed that the evidence is sound.”

Front Line (Flu/Covid) Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) president/chief medical officer Dr. Pierre Kory explained the following:

“When we examine the extensive evidence on ivermectin as a treatment for (flu/covid), we still see a significant reduction in the spread of (the viral illness), as well as a reduction in hospitalizations and deaths.”

“All science needs to be scrutinized. As some of the most published researchers in our fields, we are used to having our work examined by others.”

Ivermectin in Africa Blocks Covid, by Paul Craig Roberts

Sometimes one graph is worth a gazillion, gazillion words. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:

I suppose Fauci will say Ivermectin only works for blacks.
