Here is the Updated List of US-Based Food Manufacturing Plants Destroyed Under Biden Administration

Joe Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ is not working as planned, or is it? Gas prices are at record highs, stock markets are down, parents are having difficulty finding a baby formula, and the cost of everything is way up. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), there are currently no...

The Gateway Pundit? Hell, even Fox News doesn’t acknowledge that site.

Yeah yeah I know, Wikipedia, Washington Post and Reuters are part of the grand conspiracy, but if you are going to reference only one website, maybe not reference THE website known for spreading misinformation as fast as they can tap the keyboard.

To add, about 75% of the numbered bullets above are due to farmers having to destroy birds due to Avian-Flu.

What is Gateway Pundit, the conspiracy-hawking site at the center of the bogus Florida ‘crisis actors’ hype?

This list appears to circumvent the actual reporting of Avian Flu cases, by omitting the web link for the Stoddard Case, and then leaving off the other 8 confirmed cases, by county in Missouri from 3/4/21 to 4/5/22 while including others from different states.

Missouri Department of Ag is on top of it. MDA Avian Influenza they provide the link to the USDA Case Investigations: USDA APHIS | 2022 Confirmations of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Commercial and Backyard Flocks



This list is trying to weaponize people using glimmers of truth and it's appealing to worthy upset of people about other injustices, often who are rightfully seeking answers. Here's how:

The list appears comprehensive by length. It is not. It appears the list creators have strategically omitted dates of actual events that are confirmed by cross multi-industry (not a term, a description).

Screenshot_20220612-094404-568.png


Screenshot_20220612-094427-984.png
Red indicates Missouri Department of Agriculture counties.

Why does it appear strategic? The list creators included the first case in Stoddard MO for the Broiler Chickens on 3/3/22 and did not include the next 8 confirmed cases through 4/6/22.

MO Agriculture provides a link to USDA confirmed cases- so that brings up the question, is the government numbers reporting accurate?

With Avian Flu, Scientists, Academics, Farmers, and Veterinarians and Agriculture professionals and Animal lovers are all involved. That's a big stretch saying that these people are able to be rallied and coordinated to turn their backs on their chosen professional background and passions.

Analysis by connecting dots using information about people and organizations cannot occur accurately if the raw information is bad.

Methodology:

*I cut and pasted the list into a word document and started sourcing the unsourced entries which brought me to the Stoddard chicken case. They are indicated in red. After putting those cases that were left off the list, on the list in red, I went to the USDA link. It's a problem that the list does not source Avian Flu cases by link. I didn't look anything up about the fires, however, numbers of facilities can give insight into the actual percentage of fires and whether or not the numbers indicate abnormalities, and historical Fire Marshall violations, and even Insurance Company rates for the different places, can give accurate information to form a conclusion.

For the board. The incidents that have links should be cause for concern. Processing plants aren't exactly cheap or quick to stand up. Given geopolitical events when it comes to agricultural and energy outputs, there is something fucky going on.

Including 55 and 64 on the list only serves to pad the numbers and make it worse than it seems. Neither plant sustained damage and operations weren’t interrupted…something you can learn from clicking on the links.

If you add the avian flu-related cases, that list drastically shrinks unless the avian flu is a hoax perpetrated by The Deep State.

While I agree with your overall message, this statement and using the Washington Post as a source really doesn't help much.

Fox News Channel Has Now Spent 20 Years In The #1 Spot On The Cable News Rankings
Friendly reminder that rankings don't have anything to do with journalism. Remember when Fox's legal argument in a law suit was that A reasonable person understands Tucker Carlson does not speak facts.

Just read U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil's opinion, leaning heavily on the arguments of Fox's lawyers: The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

She wrote: "Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statement he makes."

Vyskocil, an appointee of President Trump's, added, "Whether the Court frames Mr. Carlson's statements as 'exaggeration,' 'non-literal commentary,' or simply bloviating for his audience, the conclusion remains the same — the statements are not actionable."


We can and should (with good reason) debate the integrity of our news sources; let's just leave rankings/profit out of that though, as it doesn't seem to factor.


To the point at large though; COVID really highlighted just how awfully run the majority of these food processing plants are when it comes to safety and upkeep. Is it more likely some secret nefarious group is (barely succeeding) at burning down food processing plants, or that an industry that saw profits suffer the past few years likely is trying to cut costs on preventative maintenances and repairs?

Even assuming the entire list is true (I didn't fact check it and am not going to take the time to), I don't know the context. Is this different from previous administrations? I'm old enough to remember massive outbreaks of avian flu in the distant past, which may account for some of the livestock culls. But are these arsons/accidents/cullings atypical of past years? And if so, can they be laid at the feet of the current administration?


I'm happy to heap aspersions onto the current administration, but the information provided so far does not give a full enough picture to do so.

I do remember that. I also remember it being an unfortunate condition of modern journalism.

Rachel Maddow & MSNBC Beat One America News Network Again In $10M Defamation Battle

“No reasonable viewer could conclude that (Rachel) Maddow implied an assertion of objective fact,” the opinion penned by Judge Milan D. Smith added (read it here) of the suit OAN filed in the fall of 2020 with great flurry. “The judgment of the district court is therefore affirmed.”

I forgot about the Maddow one, probably because I do everything I can to ignore that woman.

It's very disheartening that a common defense of some of the most notable "news figures" in national discourse is "you can't trust us to actually say anything factual."

IDK but if these types of "accidents" start to trend in US Chocolate production facilities I'm definitely going to panic buy and hoard. My concern is how the damage in that vat will delay/impact cocoa production. Oh, but I do hope the victims will be ok.

Two workers rescued after falling into chocolate tank at Pennsylvania's M&M Mars factory

Emergency crews responded to the factory in the 200 block of Brown Street around 2 p.m. Thursday for a report that the two employees couldn't get out of the tank. Dispatchers clarified that the individuals were "not floating around" in chocolate, but were unable to extricate themselves without assistance, Lancaster Online reported.
The solution to freeing the two employees involved cutting a hole in the side of the tank after rescue crews ruled out removing them from the top.

Think 5th gen warfare and destabilization.

Two years ago we had leftist backed idiots burn down cities across the US. They also burned down agricultural areas in Eastern Washington and Oregon, not to mention their firebug shenanigans in Montana. Now we're seeing the same kinds of things (fire) destroying food processing plants, chemical plants, and storage plants, during a time when food scarcity and prices are on the rise.

Food, fertilizer, and fuel are being targeted and we're taking hits when we can ill afford them.
