Across the nation, the average cost of a dozen eggs has skyrocketed. Whether it is due to farmers not being able to produce or the avian flu taking down birds or the burning down of chicken and egg farms, or, the fact that our favorite mega agricultural entrepreneur, Bill Gates has some part of this as well. The agenda of scarcity is the plan to weaponize food and leave those who survive fighting for every crumb and food scrap they can get.  Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with host of Rabbit Hole Radio, Popeye about EGGNORANCE AIN’T BLISS.





Every once in a while, I wake up realizing that it is at times aggravating to fathom the sheer depth of insanity that exists in our time, the terrible wars, and the confounding information that whizzes by without the majority questioning what they are being fed.

There is more than a famine of food there is a famine of sound information that can be used in order to make everyday decisions. The local news tries to appear as if they care about you and the issues you really care about –but if they did they would be more aggressive in exposing the people that control everything and how they have a lack of accountability and no respect for the people they are allegedly leading.

This goes from the president down to the various mayors and governors of the states.

Certainties that flood the airwaves and the internet are easy to come by the irony is that much of what is certainty can always be said to be uncertainty.

We have to now realize and understand that the War in Ukraine and the constant hemorrhaging of money for the war effort is beginning to trigger a food war — where not only are we seeing prices soar — we are seeing internal espionage where disease and factory fires have created scarcity and we the people are footing the bill for all of this.

The country is suffering because President Biden wants a war — this war is not only responsible for the deaths of Russians and Ukrainians- it is also responsible for the high prices and the starving of families this winter.

Only by means of intense deceit does the U.S. Government allege that it and its allies are ‘democratic’ and that the countries that they impose sanctions against and overthrow (or try to overthrow) in coups and invasions are not.

Irrespective of whether some of the countries that the U.S. Government targets for overthrow are or are not dictatorships, America itself certainly has become one Under Biden, and it has the world’s highest percentage of its population living in prison, living in Poverty and experiencing scarcity. We are constantly being fed propaganda about police brutality and mass shootings and there is always the threat of Gun control which might suffice alone to qualify America as being a police state — and perhaps the worst one.

If hypocrisy is the worst sin, then can there any longer remain doubt as to which of the world’s Governments is the world’s worst sinner? Would the world be better off to continue allowing such a Government under the Biden rule to continue touting itself to be ‘the leader of the free world’ which is actually leading the world into what keeps getting closer to a World War Three?

Should we continue to romanticize the party — when the party actually said to the world that they wish to expedite food shortages around the world?

Does anyone remember the Speech that Biden gave in Brussels, where he stated during a senior moment that the coming food shortages would be real — and necessary because of the war?

President Joe Biden says the world will experience food shortages as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “It’s going to be real,” Biden said at a news conference at G7  in Brussels. “The price of the sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia. It’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well.”

Biden continued in his rambling way, recounting a conversation he had with European allies. He told us all about it. When he met with the group, Biden said, they spoke about “how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.”

Now go to any fact check online and they will immediately tell you that he doesn’t mean it — or that it was a mistake.

If you posted the quote on Facebook It was flagged as false news and misinformation on its News Feed.

Again, the Fact-checkers are wrong and their incessant need to patrol the information online is always ridiculous and it appears that anything that exposes the hypocrisy and treachery of this administration gets censored or shut down.

What is Ironic is that Politifact features below the Biden Gaffe a report about the egg shortages.  Again another obvious attempt at scrubbing anything that points to the agenda of creating scarcity and replacing resources with genetically modified foods.

It is obvious that Biden’s comment in Brussels is now being connected to Egg shortage and coincidental fires and destruction of major meat, eggs and poultry companies.

After Biden’s speech disasters began to beset food processors all over the United States.  The headquarters of one of this country’s largest organic food distributors was destroyed in a fire. Cause unknown. The next month, in a single week, actually, two separate private plane crashes took out two separate food processing centers. One plane hit a General Mills plant in Georgia. The other plane hit a food plant in Idaho.

The Mainstream media avoided these stories and fact checkers again had to tell people not to connect the dots because none of these quote accidents were connected.

But obviously, they were — they were all food processing plants.

Conveniently being destroyed after Biden talked about “how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.”

Last weekend a major commercial egg farm in central Connecticut burned to the ground for no obvious reason. At least 20 fire departments responded.

it took over 8 hours to extinguish the flames. More than 100,000 chickens died.

For weeks, we’ve been inundated with news about the high cost of eggs. Even if we haven’t heard the talking heads discussing high egg prices, we’ve seen the shocking prices at the grocery store.

If you listen to the news or do a quick Google search, you’re going to find a lot of the same answers: There is an avian flu that has killed birds, and, as a result, we are experiencing an egg shortage.

Across the nation, the average cost for a dozen eggs is around $4.25. Again, this is an average, and the cost varies from one state to another.

I recently paid seven dollars for eggs– I couldn’t believe it.

Eggs are over $6 in Arizona, California, Nevada, Alabama, Florida, and Hawaii. A dozen eggs in Hawaii costs $9.73. To give you some idea about how drastic the price increase is, consider the price of eggs is up 138% year over year last month.

And that’s just in the US.

Europe and Malaysia are also seeing soaring egg prices. New Zealand’s latest restrictions on farmers are causing a massive egg shortage.

While there is some truth to the avian flu story, and yes, birds have died, many are starting to believe this doesn’t fully account for the shockingly high prices we are seeing in grocery stores.

For example, a Welsh egg farmer named Ian Humphreys who has a Twitter account called THE WELSH FARMER  has taken to social media to share his personal experience and how it differs from the narrative being presented.

In one video, he explains, “Supermarkets are going to tell that the high prices are because there is an avian flu, which to be fair, there are a lot of cases of avian flu. But you want to know the real reason there’s an egg shortage? It’s because the supermarkets won’t pay the farmers for their eggs.

Supermarkets have upped egg prices for the consumer but they haven’t filtered that price increase down to the farmers.

So, their price for producing those eggs has skyrocketed – feed, electricity, and the price of new birds have all gone up. But the price of eggs has stayed the same. So now the farmers physically can’t afford to produce those eggs. […] The farmers can’t afford to. If the supermarkets paid farmers a fair price for their eggs, there would be more eggs.

Humphreys isn’t the only farmer raising the alarm about the avian flu narrative. Other farmers have expressed concern about the higher costs to produce. Dairy farmers are experiencing farm inflation costs.

So, while dairy and egg prices go up, farmers are losing money.

This is a problem whether it is due to farmers not being able to produce or the avian flu taking down birds or the burning down of chicken and egg farms or the fact that our favorite Malthusian expert in disease Bill Gates has some part of this as well.

Over the last decade, Bill Gates has invested in multiple companies, including Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, that develop plant-based meat alternatives. He has also been a proponent of chicken farming.

In 2013 “2013: Bill Gates invests in plant-based eggs.

Incredible inedible eggs.. not the product name but it fits.

Since 2020, Gates has held the title of the nation’s largest private farmland owner, per The Land Report. As of 2022, he owned 248,000 acres of farmland across more than a dozen states.

Eggs also are used in vaccines and vaccine testing.  Some farmers are now claiming that contaminants are showing up in feed that is disrupting the chickens’ attempts to lay eggs.

Some farmers are allowing their chickens to eat compost which has coincidentally increased egg producing by the chickens.

But a shortage of eggs breeds and opportunity for those who wish to sell synthetic GMO eggs.

The egg of the future may not involve a chicken at all. In fact, in the high-tech food lab at Hampton Creek Foods in San Francisco, the chicken-less egg substitute has already been hatched.

Hampton Creek’s egg substitute product is called Beyond Eggs. It’s made from bits of ground-up peas, sorghum and a few other ingredients.

The company has also developed an eggless mayonnaise and salad dressing using its egg substitute.

The company also plans to use its egg substitutes for things like cookies and ready-made pancake mixes.

In 2000, the global demand for eggs was about 14 million tons, according to the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization. By 2030, that’s expected to climb to 38 million tons.

This is part of a broader global trend: As nations become wealthier, people begin to eat more animal products. In fact, the annual per capita consumption of meat has doubled since the 1980s in developing countries, and meat production is projected to double again by 2050, according to an FAO report.

Well, we have been told that farm-produced eggs, meat and poultry are responsible for destroying the planet’s resources.

A big part of the environmental footprint of eggs and meat according to Bill Gates is the amount of water and land it takes to grow the grain that’s fed to animals used in food production. There’s also the fossil fuel energy needed to produce and transport the products.

Well the irony in all of this nonsense is how wars also take up valuable resources. The tanks, planes  and weapons also run on fossil fuel– but there seems to be no outrage there. Wars are great –and starving people or feeding them substandard foods is the plan.

The EAT Forum, a “science-based global platform for food system transformation”, has developed a new “planetary health diet“, which they claim will benefit people and planet.

The EAT Forum was cofounded by the Wellcome Trust, one of the biggest funders of pharmaceutical medicine in the world!

At first glance, the diet seems reasonable, calling for greater consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts – all healthy and nutritious options!

However, once one looks deeper, some disturbing (and familiar) themes are revealed, for the diet also entails

Cutting meat and dairy intake by up to 90% and replacing it with foods made in laboratories, along with cereals and oils, most of which are now genetically engineered.

The EAT Forum is simply another player in the attempt to usurp control of the global food supply – handing control to private corporations, eliminating choice, and promoting synthetic food – all in the name of “sustainability”.

if you ask the Agriculture Department, or anyone in the Biden administration, why eggs have skyrocketed in price, they’ll tell you that egg prices are high because of avian flu.  The prices have nothing to do with chicken farms burning down at least that is the official word.

But this is again an example of forced scarcity of a protein staple in the American diet.

It is not good — and we are about to see some horrible repercussions from this moment in history and it is very much a well-designed agenda to starve people into submission and provide them with a solution that is not at all good or comfortable.

As war continues to ravage Ukraine, Americans, particularly those who live paycheck to paycheck, are beginning to feel the financial squeeze on their food prices from the conflict half a world away.

But the scarcity conspiracy has only just begun — if you are not finding ways to store food, or to find ways to cut budgets there are many things that are about to change the dynamic of the way we live in America.

They are creating a codependent world — and they are creating scarcity so that they can provide “Green carbon-free “answers to all of your worries.  This includes GMO foods, a synthetic life where all you can do is escape to the metaverse and ignore the ugliness of how the world continues to deteriorate.

I have pointed out many times that the agenda of scarcity can be traced to Karl Marx– it is the plan to weaponize food and replace it with peasant food according to the rules of repugnance.

Give them only what they deserve.

In case you had not noticed, there is a concerted effort to dominate an unsuspecting and unquestioning American public with a very specific reality that requires a consistent unanimity of thought.

That reality is necessary to continue the wars and global military dominance, to create severe economic disturbance and disparities; a reality that relies on disinformation and hypocrisy while stirring citizens into a frenzied level of confusion, worry and anxiety about the future.  A distracted population living on the edge is more easily stage-managed to accept a further loss of civil liberties than a politically informed, diligent population of infinite consciousness.

The science of groupthink and social engineering is being used on everyone in order to move them form crisis to crisis leading to cognitive strains.

We cannot ‘think’ alone but under the discursive influence of others, many of whom with which on many things we come to agree, although we must at the same time, for the sake of finding our collective way forward to a more adequate understanding of ourselves and our world, be wary of deriving too much comfort from thinking too much as others do, that is to say, conventionally, however astute and sophisticated that general outlook or mindset might be.

This war in Ukraine has been all-encompassing and it is becoming evident that this whole affair is poised to become a lynchpin in creating the never-ending cycle of scarcity. Wars are not only devastating because of the death tolls and the tragedy involved, they also wreak havoc on the environment and can be seen as just another form of geoengineering.

Opinion polls are continuing to show waning public support for the West’s deepening involvement in the Ukrainians’ fight against Russia, given the obvious fears of sliding toward nuclear confrontation and paying High prices for Gas and food.

While the opening months of the invasion last year resulted in 24/7 headlines, and a frenzy of social media posts displaying the Ukrainian flag and pledges of support, this trend has waned, and what many have dubbed “Ukraine fatigue” has long set in.

“About a quarter of Americans, 26 percent, think the U.S. support of Ukraine is too strong, according to a new Pew Research Center poll,” The Hill reports this week. “It is a percentage of people that has steadily grown since the Russian invasion of Ukraine last year and has jumped 6 points since September.”

And in particular, more and more Republicans are souring on the record-setting support levels to Ukraine… The American people should be more vocal about this — because not only is it hard on the environment –it is the biggest excuse laid out for the blueprint of scarcity all over the globe.

While we are seeing egg prices soar into the stratosphere — the next target will be beef.

We are now hearing that a shrinking US cattle herd indicates tight livestock supplies for years to come. A decline in cattle herds and high production expenses will translate into higher beef prices at the grocery store.

The latest figures from the US Department of Agriculture cattle-inventory report on Tuesday showed 89.3 million cattle as of Jan. 1, down 3% from a year ago.

The US Department of Agriculture will release a report Friday that might show ranchers sent the fewest cattle to feedlots in a decade. Cattle generally spend several months at feedlots while they grow and gain body fat and muscle before being transported to a meat packing plant. Fewer cattle at feedlots may only imply dwindling beef supplies and high prices at the supermarket.

What a coincidence — one of the villains of the Green crisis liars is beef- and another scarcity ploy to create the need for depleting the beef industry to replace it with impossible lab meats.

One cannot help but shake one’s head in outrage at the long-planned nature of the wealthy global elite’s seizure of power under the guise of a continued pandemic emergency, a needless war, and the ultimate sell of Climate crisis.

Science and politics shape the technocracy and there has been a concerted effort to use consensus groupthink to create a calculated loss in order to not only cull the population but leave those who survive fighting for every crumb and food scrap they can get.

    There was a recent news story of people claiming the Tractor Supply store chicken feed was causing their chickens to not lay eggs. I like the store but have never bought chicken feed there. What if genetically modified grains are a part of the problem. What if this chicken problem is passed on to humans. Like people no longer able to create children.

    The big problem is that Biden follows in lock step to the WEF, he believes in their goals and it’s his top priority, besides lining his own pockets. Also, many people in Biden’s Cabinet follow the WEF and some are current members in the WEF
