Image: Carbon dioxide “has almost nothing to do with climate,” says World Climate Declaration signatory

(Natural News) Is climate change real? The answer is no, and especially so with regard to carbon dioxide (CO2), which has almost no impact whatsoever on the climate.

In a 40-minute presentation, World Climate Declaration signatory David Siegel presented evidence to show that there is no climate emergency and no need to worry about CO2.

Based on input he received from the international CLINTEL network, Siegel wants the world to know that there is no reason to panic. The global net-zero CO2 policy, also known as “NetZero,” is misleading, unrealistic and destructive, he says.

“CO2 budgets are not based on science, but they are based on fear,” CLINTEL revealed in a report. “They destroy the energy system, limit human rights, feed extremism and push mankind into a deep physical, mental, and financial crisis.”

An entrepreneur and author, Siegel wrote his first book about global warming back in 1991. He says he initially believed the lies from Al Gore and others who were fearmongering about CO2.

“Then, in 2016, someone told me that ‘the science is settled,’” Siegel says about the moment when he reached a major turning point.

“Knowing that if it’s science it isn’t settled, I decided to look a bit deeper and see what I could discover.”

It was then that Siegel began his journey into climate truth, which revealed all sorts of things that go against the grain of the status quo.

“We still don’t know what really drives our climate,” Siegel says. “There’s no way we can predict the next 100 years of climate with any accuracy.”

“To me, it’s clear that CO2 has almost nothing to do with climate, and the big drivers are orbital mechanisms and plate tectonics. But there’s still a lot to learn.”

Climate change is primarily about money

As usual, most of the climate hoo-ha seems to be centered around money. Fundraising, Siegel says, is the “clear” goal of the climate fanatics – “and there is a lot of money at stake now,” he says.

“I’d love to follow the money. I’d love to see a big report showing how money flows to NGOs, how much the UN spends on public relations, how universities rely on the Climate Industrial Complex, and how motivated most groups are by money, not by helping the environment.”

“If they are going to use polar bears, forest fires, storms, and lies, it’s clear their goal is fundraising.”

It turns out that Earth’s climate has always been changing. There was never a time when it was not changing, including long before there were gas-powered cars emitting pollution.

To this day, there is nothing of any scientific substance to suggest that humans are emitting too much CO2 these days. In fact, there is no legitimate way to measure CO2 emissions in terms of how they affect the climate.

“CO2 is not a poisonous gas,” Siegel says. “It is coming out of your nose right now.”

The CO2 that comes out of your nose feeds plants, which in turn release oxygen that humans need in order to live. It is a perfectly symbiotic relationship that the climate fanatics clearly fail to grasp.

The very word climate, Siegel further maintains, suggests change.

“Climate is whatever happens to temperatures over at least 30 years,” he says. “Everything else is ‘weather.’”

Another misnomer among climate fanatics is the idea that greenhouse gases somehow trap heat. Siegel says this is untrue.

“They don’t act like a blanket,” he explains in the presentation. “They can’t store heat. All they can do is absorb and re-radiate the heat in random directions.”

Image: Former commercial airline pilot says “Squawk 7700” emergency alerts have risen 12,400 percent in age of COVID vax, 5G rollout

(Natural News) Something is happening in the skies above the U.S. and countries around the world, according to a former airline pilot who claims that emergency alerts have skyrocketed so much in the past several months that he himself worries about safety.

“Something HUGE and really scary is going on with aviation. You can see for yourself. I am a former airline captain, I am out of the industry but I still keep tabs of what is going on. I have an app on my phone, it’s a free app that you can download yourself, it is called flightradar24,” the pilot noted, according to Rumor Mill News, which published his account.

“One of the really cool features of this app is you can have alerts set up so if an aircraft somewhere in the world declares an emergency, in the industry we call it ‘squawking 7700,’ you can get a notification” on the app, the pilot continued.

“I’ve had this app for years and usually you would see one to four emergencies pop up every month. That’s how it’s always been, aviation is pretty safe, there’s not a whole lot of emergencies worldwide on the monthly basis,” the pilot continued.

However, in recent months, that has changed very significantly, the pilot reports.

“But over the last couple of months, I have been getting notifications sometimes up to 10 times a day. I’ve already had four this morning!” the pilot noted further.

“Something huge and scary is going on out there and nobody is talking about it. I am seeing so many aircraft declaring emergencies on a daily basis, and I don’t know what is going on. You don’t have to believe me, you can download the app for yourself and set up the notifications. A lot of emergencies happening these days, I don’t know if I want to fly commercially anymore,” the pilot, who posted anonymously, added.

Most recently, airlines canceled flights ahead of a long-expected rollout of new 5G technology by AT&T and Verizon over concerns that the new signals would interfere with the avionics of some airliners, especially the Boeing 777, with one airline executive calling the botched exercise one of the most horrific things he has seen over his decades in the industry.

Emirates president Tim Clark said that the Dubai-based carrier was not aware of the issues until the day before the scheduled unveiling of the technology “to the extent that it was going to compromise the safety of operation of our aircraft and just about every other 777 operator to and from the United States and within the United States.”

“We were aware of a 5G issue. Okay. We are aware that everybody is trying to get 5G rolled out after all it’s the super-cool future of whatever it may be communication and information flow. We were not aware that the power of the antennas in the United States have been doubled compared to what’s going on elsewhere,” he added.

“We were not aware that the antenna themselves have been put into a vertical position rather than a slight slanting position, which then taken together compromise not only the radio altimeter systems but the flight control systems on the fly by wire aircraft. So on that basis, we took that decision late last night to suspend all our services until we had clarity,” he added, saying that the airline wouldn’t take any risks,” he said, adding: “I need to be as candid as I normally am, and say this is one of the most delinquent, utterly irresponsible issue subjects, call it what you like, I’ve seen in my aviation career because it involves organs of government, manufacturers, science, etc.”

There are also rising concerns that negative impacts from COVID-19 vaccines are affecting pilots and air travel.

Last month, Natural News reported that pilot deaths have increased by a whopping 1,750 percent since the vaccines were introduced.

Animal feed halt is a Biden Regime attempt to wipe out ALL LIVESTOCK and usher in new era of disgusting test-tube meat

Image: Animal feed halt is a Biden Regime attempt to wipe out ALL LIVESTOCK and usher in new era of disgusting test-tube meat

(Natural News) From the halting of fertilizer and animal feed shipments to the waves of arson that have burnt down food factories in America, the Biden Administration seems to be strategically and nefariously deconstructing America’s agricultural infrastructure, but why? One reason is to convert the entire “meat” industry from real food into Franken-food. This plan, along with pushing blood-clotting vaccines for Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), will ensure the population reduction plan goes into full swing sooner rather than later. Expensive and toxic test-tube meat made in a laboratory is coming to every store near you, and it won’t just be a choice, it will be the ONLY choice.

Cell-based, genetically modified meat is disgusting and a dangerous food experiment that will be all but FORCED on Americans, along with clot shots

Most meat-eaters refuse to eat meat grown in a lab, but if given no other choice, will probably convert. Food shortages are being engineered across the board in America, and it’s no coincidence about all the halting of feed and fertilizer trains, burning down of food factories, and boycotting imports from breadbasket countries.

Throwing gasoline on the fire in Ukraine (under the guise of NATO) is not helping the food shortage situation, all intended to drive Americans into eating only GMO-Frankenfoods for every meal and snack. Get ready for a gel-like substance grown in test tubes from the blood of animals, that’s genetically modified and mutated to cause sickness in anything that consumes it. No safety tests have been run for human consumption of Bill Gates’ GM meat, not for the short term or long term.

Once all animal feed supplies are destroyed and cut off from farmers in America, they will be forced to sell their farm animals for slaughter just to pay their bills, and then there will be no more livestock at all, just lab-meat made from stored blood. Fake steak. Fake burger. Fake chicken. Fake turkey. Fake pig.

Artificial meat is “built” with microbes and fungus, including fake meat, dairy, egg, and even lab-made “breast milk” substitutes

Ready to be part of the grand cancer experiment? No? Maybe you should avoid Franken-meat, and Franken-eggs, and Franken-breast-milk then. From Ginkgo Bioworks and Motif Foodworks, to Nature’s Fynd and BioMilq, lab-grown animal junk science is coming to stores near you, for good.

Wave goodbye to meat from actual animals that roamed the Earth. Wave goodbye to actual animal by-products like eggs and milk, because the Biden Regime, Bill Gates, and the other globalist pigs want everyone eating Franken-foods and getting injected with Franken-vaccines.

First Bill Gates pushed his nasty lab-grown meat stuff on third world countries, but now he’s pushing it on everyone, everywhere

Here’s Bill Gates trying to turn the world’s populace into Franken-Zombies who eat artificial meat every meal and get clot shots every 3 months until we reduce the world’s population by a few billion. Here’s Gates’ plan to end all real meat and sell just lab-concocted junk-science funk: “I do think all rich countries should move to 100 percent synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste better over time. Eventually, that green premium is modest enough that you can sort of change the [behavior] of people or use regulation to totally shift the demand.”

Bill Gates is very angry that Big Food won’t yet allow him to call this bloody-lab-funk made from cow abortions “meat.” He wants to end “meat” as we know it and substitute it all with his mass-funded lab concoctions.

That’s why rail carriers are being forced to halt shipments of grain to cow herds across America – it’s an engineered meat collapse to “shift the demand” to Franken-meat. Remember, the Health Ranger has called this out already in several articles, where halting this feed for animals is devastating the farmer’s ability to keep livestock alive and producing products without killing them all off to do it. America’s food infrastructure is being deliberately shut downas Mike Adams has stated.

This Is Why Your ‘Locally Butchered’ Beef Might Actually Come From China

Tyler Durden's Photo

BY TYLER DURDEN

FRIDAY, APR 01, 2022 – 11:00 PM

https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/why-your-locally-butchered-beef-might-actually-come-china

Authored by Wesley Shank via The Epoch Times,

Misleading label claims are everywhere…

(Reposted here under the Fair Use Doctrine)

They bombard you while walking down the grocery store aisles.

They creep up on you while scanning a slick marketer’s website.

They shock you when even your best friend recommends an industrial organic brand… “Hey, it’s a lot cheaper and they say it’s just as good!”

“Well… how do I know?”

I admit this is the hard part because the big guys don’t want you to know! They spend tens of thousands of dollars to design the label and marketing claims to subtly deceive you without you knowing.

And they’ve done a good job… many people are fooled.

It’s time to pull back the shroud to expose the industrial reality that lies behind.

Deceptive Label Claims to Be Aware of:

1. Cage-Free, Free-Range, and even Pastured

The big guys describe their chickens flawlessly. Their websites show lovely pictures of birds walking in lush grass with sunshine streaming around them.

Yes, they do look… almost pastured… until you notice the sprawling industrial “CAFO barn” at the edge of one picture (in the video link).

That barn could be holding 10,000+ birds. Maybe 5% of them will venture outside during their short lives—but probably not.

Truly no comparison…

There is so much more to share and explain… I’ll devote an entire email to this as soon as possible.

And I didn’t even start on the same problem with CAFO Industrial Organic Dairy farms. More on that next week…

2. “Grass-fed,” Beef

Some “grass-fed” beef is actually fed a corn and soy based diet for the last 3-5 months of its life in a feedlot.

Sure doesn’t sound like grass-fed to me!

But like so many of these label claims, they have a kernel of truth mixed in to make a very tricky logic.

Most cattle are raised on grass for the first half of their lives before being grain-finished in a CAFO feedlot. So the industrial guys say…

“Of course I can label my beef as ‘grass-fed’!”

These cattle eat grass for part of their lives and the regulations don’t say how much grass they need to eat before I sell this as ‘grass-fed beef.’

Too bad for the customers if they don’t know what my ‘grass-fed’ means!”

I’m not making this up.

This is the logic that gets cheap “grass-fed” beef into supermarkets.

If you want truly grass-fed beef, you must ask for 100% grass-fed & grass-finished. And make sure it’s chemical-free too! Even grasses are commonly sprayed in the industrial world.

3. Product of the USA Meat

Beef and Pork can be raised and slaughtered in Australia, New Zealand, Uruguay, Brazil, China, etc…

It’s then shipped over here to be cut into your supermarket steaks, roasts and burgers…

And legally labeled as “Product of the USA!”

Sad, but true.

Those cattle and pigs didn’t breath a single breath of United States air to merit this status. But shoppers will never know the difference.

Stone Barns Center report says 75-80% of all “USA” grass-fed beef sold online or in grocery stores is imported from overseas.

It is shocking that United States label regulations allow this.

But in some ways, the next one is even crazier!

4. “Fresh,” and “Never-been-frozen,” Poultry

According to the USDA, poultry can be sold as “fresh” if it has never been below 26° F.

Excuse me, but isn’t 32° usually considered the freezing point?

And there’s another misleading claim. This one is especially important with turkey season here.

Poultry can be sold as “never been frozen” as long as it hasn’t been stored below 0° F. Read it in the USDA’s own words.

This. is. crazy.

“Never been frozen” says quite clearly that it, well… has never been frozen. I know from experience that chickens and turkeys at 10° are quite solidly frozen!

But not to the industrial guys. As long as last year’s turkey didn’t go below 0° they can thaw it out and sell it to unsuspecting families as a beautiful “never-been-frozen” Thanksgiving Turkey.

That’s the level of integrity you get with the Industrial Organic food system.

Industrial Organics are not all bad. They help cut down on our nation’s chemical and antibiotic use.

BUT.

The deceptive marketing claims are wrong. We need to pull back the Industrial Curtain layer by layer so everyone in this country can see what lies behind.

Please help spread the word.

It’s time more people wake up and start supporting small farms across the country again. Those farms are where the real, truly pastured organics all began.

What happens every time mankind becomes so evil? 

The United States especially has become so evil, that children are being sold as sex slaves, and used for adrenochrome.  Infants are being raped, yes infants!  And every one turns a blind eye.

Can anyone really blame God for allowing this country to fall into ruins?  Look at our politicians.  They all are a bunch of greedy, mindfucking, evil atrocities that has ruined our country.  Our forefathers must be truly horrified that we have allowed, everything they fought for to be taken from us, like taking candy from a child. 

In the hopes that the government, of all things, will swoop down and save us from unseen horrors.  One by one, they have taken everything from us, and it continues.  People watch the mainstream news, and hang onto every word, as if it is the gospel.  Common sense tells us that the mainstream news is bullshit, yet we hang on every word.  We live in the most corrupt times imaginable.  We have by-passed the throws of the Roman empire, where they had open orgies with everyone fucking each other as commonly as blowing their noses. 

Every time man has gotten so corrupted, God has cleansed the earth.  Let’s face it, someone did vote for Joe Biden.  I don’t know anyone who admits that they voted for him, but someone did, he is President.  And if no one did, then we are all guilty as hell for not doing anything about having a non-elected president.  We all sit back, day after day, while Supreme Socialist Leader Biden systematically destroys the country that our forefathers killed and died for, the more perfect union.  And since we are such wimpy, pussies, we beg for someone to protect us, rather than stepping up and taking care of ourselves.  What the fuck is wrong with everyone?

I tell you one thing, the men have been feminized, and the women have become a bunch of dikes.  That is the only thing I can come up with.  How many parents do you see raising hell about the schools teaching 4-6 years old about sex and how to masturbate, taking dildos to school and teaching sweet innocent children that it is good to become a transgender.  How long do yall really think God is going to put up with this shit?!? 

Innocent children given the death shots, and taught these atrocious behavior by drag-queens doing story time, while bouncing your kids on their knees?  This sick perverted men, the pedophiles that they are!  I tell you what, my Daddy would have taken on as many as he could, till it killed him.  He would have never put up with such sick shit!  Any parents that tolerate this shit, don’t deserve their children, and heaven forbid what will come to America because of this behavior.  God is not going to not notice this.  It’s like the wild west all over the country.

The President admitted that he fondled his young daughter, and thinks it is ok that he took showers with her and abused her.  His son, Hunter, is a pedophile, and incestuous sick basterd. But of course he is, the fruit don’t fall from the tree. And we have these people running our country! 

They have millions upon millions of illegal aliens coming into our country to destroy our culture and heritage, and you people don’t give a flying fuck!  I can’t believe it! 

Everyone sits back, and hell if I know what they think or do.  Either getting drunk, doing drugs or something, cause if they’re not, we are in even worse shape than I thought.  That would mean, that there is no excuse at all for our behavior.  My God people, what is wrong with you?

Whatever happens, I don’t know what it will be, but we will deserve it, and it ain’t going to be pretty.   I pledge my soul to God Almighty, and I pray that he forgives me for not speaking sooner!  I do believe that there will be a cleansing of the earth though.  Every time the world gets this evil, there is a cleansing.  So hold onto your ass, it will be a wild ride, and where you end up in the end will be your own doing!

This is not about Russia. It’s not about Ukraine. The real war is between free peoples and the globalists.

Image: Bank runs begin in Russia, serving as a reminder for ALL people to question the stability of all banks around the world
  • Reposted Under the Fair Use Doctrine

(Natural News) Bank runs have already begun in Russia. The Russians are flocking to the banks and ATMS, as Russian banks are cut off from The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (S.W.I.F.T.). This international system is the main messaging network by which banks process financial transactions worldwide. Global institutions are targeting Russians at a rapid pace. Entire banks are being “canceled” in Russia, and the citizens there will ultimately be the ones who suffer.

People losing faith in banks worldwide

All around the world, people are losing faith in the traditional banking system. When Justin Trudeau announced dictatorial control over Canadian banks and began looting private citizen’s bank accounts, the people of Canada responded by taking their money out of banks en masse. Now Russians are making a run for their money, as Russia is sanctioned and cut off from the Western world and the international banking cartel.

As Russian banks are cut off from SWIFT, they are unable to transfer or receive funds from other banks. This is halting foreign transactions and currency conversions. This not only threatens the solvency of these targeted banks, but it also fuels speculation that the ruble could soon collapse. On Monday, February 28, people across Russia stood in line for hours to get their money out of ATM machines. Lines formed as early as 5AM, as the international community threatened to sanction and shut down the Russian banking system.

“The situation is completely unstable, and sanctions and restrictions on the central bank can only get worse,” said Alexandra Suslina, a budget specialist at the Moscow-based Economic Expert Group. “There’s already a bit of a rush to take money out of ATMs, but no cash machine is designed for the lines that will appear at sanctioned banks.”

As Europe also shuts down its airspace to Russia and stops cash flow coming in, the Bank of Russia may have no choice but to hike interest rates. In just a few days, the exchange rate for rubles to dollars rose from the low 80s to well over 110 rubles per dollar.

Globalists are overplaying their hand by targeting innocent civilians

Right now, globalists are targeting Russian banks and committing their own acts of war against the Russian people. People around the world are learning that these institutions wield significant power over them, as they are subconsciously trained to be compliant in all matters where their financial security is at stake. But by sanctioning entire banks and targeting countless innocent civilians, globalists are overplaying their hand and exposing the corruption and totalitarianism of their influence. The globalists’ war-like actions are decimating public faith in the traditional banking institutions, whether it be in Russia, Canada, Europe or the US. Innocent civilians are being looted either directly through frozen bank accounts or indirectly through currency devaluation, and they are looking to take their money back and invest it where they have more autonomy and where the currency has more tangible value.

All around the world, people are learning that their money is NOT safe in the traditional banking system. If the people in charge of these government and banking institutions see YOU as a threat, they will go after your money, your assets and ban you from their systems. The people of Russia are learning this the hard way. People in Canada are witnessing it as well.

The Canadian government is targeting anyone who financially supports medical freedom and body autonomy rights. The Canadian government is banishing people from public life using vaccine mandates. When those people protest for their lives, careers and future, the Canadian government seizes their assets, arrests, tramples and imprisons them without due process. The same moral and ethical dilemma has been taking place for years in the U.S. as corporations such as PayPal, YouTube, Google and Facebook coordinate with one another to de-platform, de-bank and cancel political opposition or shut down anyone who speaks the truth on important topics such as medical freedom and vaccine choice.

The targeted attacks in Russia, Canada and the US are only the beginning acts of war that will inevitably lead to monumental changes in how people do business and transact with one another around the world.

Tonight, I was reading articles on Officer.com. https://www.officer.com/features/honoring-the-fallen/news/21255899/nc-corrections-officer-dies-after-medical-emergency

There are numerous articles talking about officers and vaccine mandates, and such. One thing I found rather odd, is that numerous officers all over the country, have recently passed after experiencing “medical distress”, or “medical emergency”. The articles never come out and say what kind of medical distress, or medical emergency was or consisted of, or what brought on the “medical distress” or “medical emergency”.

I find that rather odd. There are also stories about Officers that died after being shot, or ambushed, dragged by a car, or the like. They just never specify what the medical distress or medical emergency was.

One article stated “N.C. Corrections Officer Dies after Medical Emergency” it was on Feb. 7, 2022: “Corrections Officer Helen Mae Smith was returning to her post after an offender incident at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution in Elizabeth City when she began experiencing medical distress“. Our hearts go out to her family, and we pray for their loss. https://www.officer.com/features/honoring-the-fallen/news/21255899/nc-corrections-officer-dies-after-medical-emergency

Another one: “Calif. Sheriff’s Deputy Dies after Medical Emergency During Stop” Feb. 15, 2022 “Alameda County Deputy Aubrey Phillips, a five-year veteran with the department, was conducting a traffic stop when she suffered “a severe and acute medical emergency.” We pray for the family and their loss. https://www.officer.com/features/honoring-the-fallen/news/21256892/calif-sheriffs-deputy-dies-after-medical-emergency

There were officers killed in auto accidents, when there weren’t high speed chases or anything. It’s like Officers just dying while driving.

“Fla. Law Enforcement Officer Dies in On-Duty Interstate Collision” Feb. 14, 2022. “Officer James McWhorter of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Law Enforcement Division was struck by a pickup truck while crossing Interstate 95 in Nassau County.” “McWhorter, 31, had been with the agency since January 2019. He is survived by his fiancée and four children.”. We will keep his family in our prayers and send condolences to his friends and family.

https://www.officer.com/features/honoring-the-fallen/video/21256618/fla-le-officer-dies-in-onduty-interstate-collision

This one, they didn’t say anything about a crash really: “Mich. Police Officer Killed in On-Duty Crash” Feb. 6, 2022

Capt. Collin Birnie was a Flint police officer for over 25 years, and he “was a respected leader in our community and beloved by the members of our agency,” the department said. https://www.officer.com/features/honoring-the-fallen/news/21255829/mich-police-officer-killed-in-onduty-crash They call it a crash, but don’t sat anything about what hit him, or what he hit.

I know I had been seeing articles about pilots killing over while flying, after having had a vaccine booster. But there are a lot of these officers dying, without any explanations. You know if they are vaccine related, the authorities, especially the ones firing officers over vaccine mandates. are never going to let that come out. All over the US, there are officers and first responders filing cases against the mandates, and many being fired for not complying.

It really is time to quit with the mandate bullshit. Everyone knows it was a plannedemic to genocide a lot of us off of the planet. The idilites want to merge with AI, and they are attempting to terraform the earth for whatever subspecies they plan to turn into or what have you. It all depends on whether one thinks they are terraforming so that aliens will be better suited here than humans, and whether or not you believe that the transhumans won’t need to breath the same amount of air that we currently need.

Whatever, that is for another day, but for whatever reason, they need to take their friggin masks, shoot themselves up with their own vaccines, and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

A Deadly Year for Law Enforcement

Having spent 34 years as the founding CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, I have dedicated most of my professional career honoring law enforcement’s fallen heroes and working to make it safer for those who continue to serve. That is why it saddens me so deeply to know that 2021 was the deadliest year ever in American policing history.

To put it in perspective, just consider that prior to 2021 the deadliest year ever for law enforcement was 1930, when 312 officers died in the line of duty. According to preliminary statistics reported by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), 458 officers died in the line of duty in 2021 (47% more than died in 1930). While the final number may change a bit after further review, one thing is certain—2021 was the darkest and most tragic year in law enforcement history.

While it appears that, for the second year in a row, more officers died in the line of duty from COVID than any other cause, there were significant increases in all categories of officer fatalities last year. The number of officers killed by gunfire (62) rose by 38% over the total in 2020; traffic-related deaths (58) also increased by 38%; and the “other” category of death (338), which includes COVID and other job-related illnesses, jumped by 63% over the 2020 total. The overall preliminary officer fatality figure for 2021 (458) represents a 55% increase over the 295 officers who died in the line of duty in 2020.

The National Fraternal Order of Police tracks the number of officers shot (fatal and non- fatal), and the circumstances of those shootings. They have reported that 346 officers were shot in the line of duty nationwide in 2021, including 130 officers who were shot in 103 ambush-style attacks (a 115% increase from 2020).

Police retirements have jumped 45% over the past year and resignations are up 18%. We now have the fewest number of law enforcement officers on a per resident basis in the last 25 years. The fact that there are fewer officers, with less experience, to prevent violent crime and serve as back-up to other officers in harm’s way makes an officer’s job today more dangerous than ever.

With all of this heartbreaking and alarming news as backdrop, it is shameful and despicable knowing that some elected officials at the federal, state and local level of government continue to push for “defunding the police” and preventing agencies from getting the personnel, equipment, training and technology necessary for officer safety and public safety.

Earlier this year, Scott Wolfe, Ph.D., an associate professor at Michigan State University’s School of Criminal Justice, declared that the “defund” movement has “emboldened” criminals who do not view police as legitimate. He added that “many portions of the population have gone too far” in their criticism of law enforcement. I fully agree. Our elected officials and community activists need to understand that words do matter. By questioning the value of policing and vilifying the entire profession, they are encouraging criminals to resist, assault and even kill our officers. Look no further than the dramatic surge in ambush-style attacks on our officers this past year as all the proof needed.

Here is a recap of 2021. More law enforcement officers died in the line of duty than ever before. At least 16 major U.S. cities set all-time homicide records. The ranks of law enforcement have dropped to their lowest per capita total than at any time in the last quarter century. Veteran leaders and rank-and-file officers are leaving the profession in droves and recruitment is down dramatically. Clearly, the “defund,” anti-law enforcement movement has been a colossal failure and created an officer safety and public safety crisis. It must be stopped. The lives of our citizens and our policing professionals depend on it.

The stock trading by U.S. representatives and senators comes amid a push for a ban on the congressional buying and selling of public shares.

https://video-api.wsj.com/api-video/audio/iframe.html?sbid=WP-MKTW-0000568405&hideFeedback=true&showSubscribe=false&showTitle=false&theme=wsj-article-reader&adsEnabled=true&parentUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.marketwatch.com%2Famp%2Fstory%2Fu-s-lawmakers-traded-an-estimated-355-million-of-stock-last-year-these-were-the-biggest-buyers-and-sellers-11643639354#amp=1

Congress resembled a Wall Street trading desk last year, with lawmakers making an estimated total of $355 million worth of stock trades, buying and selling shares of companies based in the U.S. and around the world.

At least 113 lawmakers have disclosed stock transactions that were made in 2021 by themselves or family members, according to a Capitol Trades analysis of disclosures and MarketWatch reporting. U.S. lawmakers bought an estimated $180 million worth of stock last year and sold $175 million.

The trading action taking place in both the House and the Senate comes as some lawmakers push for a ban on congressional buying and selling of individual stocks. Stock trading is a bipartisan activity in Washington, widely conducted by both Democrats and Republicans, the disclosures show. Congress as a whole tended to be slightly bullish last year with more buys than sells as the S&P 500 SPX soared and returned 28.4%. Republicans traded a larger dollar amount overall — an estimated $201 million vs. Democrats’ $154 million.

So who were the biggest traders? The table below, based on a Capitol Trades analysis, shows the 41 members of Congress who made stock buys or sells in 2021 with an estimated value of at least $500,000 — or had family members who made such trades.

At the top of the list of the biggest traders on Capitol Hill by dollar volume is Rep. Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican, who disclosed an estimated $31 million in stock buys and $35 million in stock sales. He’s followed by Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna of California with $34 million in estimated purchases and $19 million in sales, GOP Rep. Mark Green of Tennessee with $26 million in estimated buys and $26 million in sells, and Democratic Rep. Suzan DelBene of Washington state with $15 million in estimated buys and $31 million in sells.

Marketing for Seniors

5 Marketing Avenues for Seniors

Wishing to Start Their Dream Businesses

By:  Marcus Lansky, for Pro Se Litigation Website

 12/27/2021

Starting a business as a senior may feel like a giant hurdle. However, running a successful company has far more to do with strategy than age. Marketing is one of the key aspects of many lucrative businesses. If you are older and plan to open a company, Pro Se Litigation[1] shares these five marketing avenues to incorporate into your business plans.

1. Proposal

Before marketing your goods, you need to develop a marketing plan.[2] Without outlining how you intend to advertise your business, you will likely struggle to execute successful marketing campaigns.

The great news is you can develop a comprehensive plan by yourself without having to spend loads of money on an expensive agency. Make sure your plan includes key marketing factors, such as determining your target audience, knowing why consumers should pick your business over competitors and choosing what routes you will use for marketing your company, like print media or online media. 

Your plan should also include a section for thorough market research. Market research[3] is gathering facts and statistics about the people and current business trends in your area. The more you know about the audiences and current practices, the better informed you are to make important business decisions. Plus, you will know exactly what locations need your products and services.

2. Social Media

While some earlier generations shy away from social media,[4] embracing it can give you a fantastic, inexpensive marketing tool. A couple of the most popular social media platforms[5] for business owners are Instagram and Facebook. With these sites, you can create a free page with informative business content and intriguing photos to market your company. You can interact with potential customers on your pages via messaging, posts, and likes. 

3. Online Directories

Instead of turning to a hard copy of the YellowPages,[6] many consumers now turn to online directories. Like social media, create pages for your business via online directories,[7] such as Yelp, Google My Business or Angi. While some social media sites also support business pages, these sites are created specifically for business information.

As with social media pages, make sure your listing is eye-catching and tells consumers why they should choose you. Additionally, many online directories feature customer reviews. Reviews can make or break a business. One report states that 95% of people turn to online reviews before buying a product or service.[8] Encourage customers to leave reviews. Once you have built a good reputation, you can market your amazing reviews to entice new customers. 

4. Website

Think of your website[9] as your online storefront. If your store is unattractive and difficult to navigate, chances are people will not make a purchase or return. The same goes for your website. No one will stick around to see what you have to offer if your website is boring and clunky. Plus, your social media marketing can direct users to your website, so make sure it is attractive and easy to use.

5. In-Person Gatherings

Fairs, farmer’s markets, and town events[10] are excellent options to set up a booth and market your company. You can sell goods, and this is a great opportunity to get consumer feedback to determine which products are desirable and which are not. 

Although it may be intimidating starting a business in your later years, having a plan can make all the difference. By clearly laying out steps to market your company, you give your new business the best chance to succeed.

Marketing plans can include separate marketing strategies for the various marketing teams across the company, but all of them work toward the same business goals.  https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/marketing-plan-examples

[3] Market research is the process of determining the viability of a new service or product through research conducted directly with potential customers. Market research allows a company to discover the target market and get opinions and other feedback from consumers about their interest in the product or service.  https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/market-research.asp

[4] The term social media refers to a computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and information through virtual networks and communities. Social media is internet-based and gives users quick electronic communication of content, such as personal information, documents, videos, and photos. Users engage with social media via a computer, tablet, or smartphone via web-based software or applications. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/social-media.asp

Strengthen my faith, Lord. Forgive my sins, so that I may be clean in your righteousness. 

Make me brave, so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life and in our world. Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won’t be caught off guard. 

Together, Lord, we’ll win, because in truth, you already have. While evil still roams, the power of Your name and Your blood rises up to defeat and bring us victory against every evil planned against us. While malicious actions may disturb us, we use the armor of God You have given us to stand firm. 

You will bring justice in due time for all the harm and needless violence aimed at Your children. Until then, we remain in Your presence, aligned with Your purposes, and we look to You as our Supreme Commander and Protector.

Help us to avoid temptation, and deliver us from evil, Lord. You are the Mighty One, the One Who will ultimately bring all evil to light. With You, Jesus, we are safe. Amen.

ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: VACCINES MAY NOT BE WHAT THEY ONCE WERE……. PURPOSE HAS SHIFTED, SO IT SEEMS — ARLIN REPORT……………….walking this path together

Gab Is Not For Sale

By Andrew Torba on December 2, 2021

There were two big announcements in the alternative technology space this week that solidified Gab’s place in the market as a multi-billion dollar business.

It’s being reported that the gang of grifters around former President Trump are looking to raise $1 billion dollars from a bunch of satanic hedge funds for a project that failed to even launch into beta testing as promised in November and was hacked within hours of being announced.

This is a project with currently no public product, no users, and no revenue that is now worth $4 billion dollars “just because.” Perhaps their business model will involve selling covid vaccines to kids or something, who knows.

The stock is currently trading on pure speculation. The vast majority of that trading is coming from President Trump’s main street supporters, the good and decent hardworking Americans who are buying the stock in anticipation of it going even higher if and when a service ever actually launches.

I truly hope and pray that the Wall Street short sellers and hedge funds don’t screw these good people over like they always do, but it appears that Trump Media itself is already doing so with this new billion dollar deal which is reportedly going to massively dilute existing investors. The SEC is now investigating.

Trump Media is now looking to secure a so-called private investment in public equity (PIPE) that would value Digital World shares closer to their recent price, currently hovering around $40, the sources said. It is a departure from most PIPE deals, which are typically done at $10 per share, and would result in a much greater dilution of existing Digital World investors.

Let’s Get Ready To Rumble

The second big alternative tech grift story of the week comes from the anti-free speech Canadian video company Rumble, which is raising $400 million in a SPAC deal similar to the one that the grifters around President Trump put together a few weeks ago before their latest billion dollar hedge fund grift.

We already know from pervious reporting that Rumble changed their terms of service the day Trump joined the platform to ban “hate speech” and “anti-semitism.” In other words, their terms of service now not only mirror that of Big Tech platforms, but take it one step further by explicitly banning “anti-semitism” which means any criticism, humor, mockery, or critique of Jews and Israel.

Needless to say all of this market activity is great for Gab, the leading alternative technology platform and the only true free speech platform on the internet. Based on Truth Social’s market cap (no product, no users, no revenue) and Rumble’s market cap, Gab is now easily a multi-billion dollar company. Unlike both of these projects however; Gab remains the one place on the internet where first amendment-protected political speech is not only protected, it’s encouraged.

For those of you who have been following along: Gab refused to entertain the censorship demands from Trump’s team earlier this year. We also refused to sell any part of Gab or access to Gab’s data to Trump’s team.

Torba said Kushner and his cronies tried to get Torba to “sell out” and “compromise on Gab’s free speech policies,” suggesting that Gab “clean up [their] image,” before President Trump was allowed on. Witzke queried Torba into exactly what people Kushner wanted banned, and Torba revealed that he “specifically had problems with people criticizing Jewish people and Zionism and policies related to Israel”:

Defending free speech at all costs, even at the cost of Trump joining Gab, is why Gab is the number one alternative technology platform on the internet and growing fast. While we have specialized in free speech for five years now, free markets inevitably develop anywhere that free speech is protected. That’s exactly what is happening on Gab right now with our vision for a Parallel Christian Economy.

Our advertising service is currently exploding in growth and thousands of businesses are joining the Parallel Economy on Gab. Our community is thriving and our vision is expanding to include the peaceful noncompliance and exit from the Oligarch systems of control over our lives. We are building something real, something authentic, something important. We’re not out to make a quick buck on Wall Street. We’re here change the world and bring glory to God.

Gab could very easily do exactly what Trump and Rumble are doing and go to Wall Street and raise billions. Many of the same investment bankers, venture capitalists, and hedge funds who are working with Truth Social and Rumble have already gotten wind of Gab’s recent growth and have been reaching out to us in droves. We politely reply telling them to go pound sand. I have no interest in dealing with these people or taking their money because when you raise billions from the Beast, the Beast owns and controls you for life. I am a free man and I intend to keep it that way.

Gab is the only platform on the internet where true free speech lives and no amount of money is worth giving that up. God has always provided more than enough for us to meet our needs and continue to grow. I have faith that He will continue to do so without the need for Wall Street blood money.

Money isn’t interesting to me, free speech is.

This isn’t about money, it’s about the future for my children and yours.

It’s about reclaiming our country and protecting our home.

It’s about getting access to information that the Regime doesn’t want you to access.

Most importantly it’s about the ability for Christians to authentically practice our faith in Jesus Christ without being attacked, smeared, censored, and systematically destroyed for doing so.

That all starts and is only made possible by protecting free speech for everyone.

All the money in the world won’t inspire people. It won’t create something worth fighting for. It won’t innovate. It will make a lot of grifters and hedge funds very rich, but it won’t make a dent in the very real problems facing our society.

Gab’s mission and vision are very clear and stand alone in the market. We are building technology that powers a parallel Christian economy and defends free speech online for all people at all costs. We don’t need Wall Street Hedge funds to make that happen. We don’t need a billion dollars to make that happen. We have The People and our faith in God to make that happen.

Gab is not for sale.

Or Hallowe’en, or All Hallows Eve, All Hallows Evening in full. Traditionally 31st October (today) when people celebrate, if that is the right word.

Celebrate what though? Wikipedia says ‘It begins the observance ofAllhallowtide, the time in theliturgical yeardedicated to remembering the dead, includingsaints(hallows),martyrs, and all the faithful departed.’ From

It also says ‘One theory holds that many Halloween traditions may have been influenced by ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, which may have had pagan roots’

Well I don’t think much of the world’s population is too bothered about saints, martyrs and faithful departed. They seem more concerned with horror stories and films, trick-or-treat and toffee apples, and such like. At least in what is called the Western world.

I have never seen the attraction of horror films myself. Being scared witless does boost…

US Army Warns It’s “Not Ready To Fight” As Red Terror Takeover Plot Accelerates

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A troubling new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting that due to the insane policies enacted by Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden since he seized power in January, exports from Russia to the United States, particularly in energy, mineral fertilizers and timber, have soared to $11.78-billion, up by 70.8%—is Western money flooding into Russia set to continue soaring after a warning was issued that European natural gas prices are set to increase further in the event of harsh weather—to ease the burden on its citizens and businesses suffering catastrophic rises in energy costs it sees the German government now begging socialist regulators to open the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to allow much needed Russian natural gas into their country—sees the only ones to blame for this crisis being the socialist European idiots that demanded Russian natural gas giant Gazprom stop long-term contracts pegging the cost of natural gas with oil, and replace them with short-term contracts letting speculators set the price of natural gas—a lunatic change that caused President Putin to say about these socialists: “They made mistakes…It has become absolutely evident today that it is a mistaken policy…It leads to glitches and imbalance”—and in a further rebuke to these socialist lunatics, it now sees global energy expert Jonathan Stern at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies accurately stating: “The Russians told us for ages: Don’t do it, it’s stupid, stick to oil-linked prices”.

In a dramatic call to its citizens, this report notes, the socialist government in Ukraine is now telling them to collect and store manure for energy to heat their homes—a call to gather manure for heat Ukraine joined with a threat to launch missiles at Moscow, which Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded to with the statement: “We doubt that Ukrainian representatives will dare to repeat such threats on the UN or OSCE platforms, designed to defend the principle of the non-use of force or threats of force in international relations…The reasons behind this behavior by Ukrainian politicians are clear…Being unable to fulfill their promises on the improvement of the economy, improvement of the quality of life, on the prevention of linguistic and ethnic discrimination and peaceful resolution of the conflict in Donbass, Kiev authorities seek to shift the attention of their citizens to other topics, Russia in particular”.

This transcript sees Security Council Members further noting Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova declaring that Berlin and Paris must provide their assessment of how Ukraine’s threats of a missile strike at Russia influence the Normandy Four negotiations process, with her stating: “We urge German and French authorities, who advocate new Normandy format meetings, to assess how the direct threats of Ukrainian politicians against Russia facilitate progress at the negotiations”—sees this coming at the same time Poland warned it would defend itself by any means available if the EU launched a “third World War” by holding back Covid-19 recovery funding, with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stating: “What will happen if the European Commission starts a third World War?…We are going to defend our rights with any weapons which are at our disposal”—a threat of war within the EU among its own members Germany responded to by advocating a “first strike” nuclear weapons policy against Russia—all of which makes it no wonder why renowned historian Professor-Doctor Tarik Cyril Amar at Koç University in Istanbul-Turkey is now warning: “NATO’s bullish new plan to fight Russia on the seas, the skies and in space could backfire, igniting a catastrophic nuclear conflict”.

Security Council Members discussing the likelihood of a “backfiring catastrophic nuclear conflict” erupting between the Eastern powers of Russia and China and the US-led Western powers, sees this transcript showing them noting the latest war assessment made by the Ministry of Defense (MoD)—an MoD assessment that first reveals Russia’s R-30 Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are invulnerable to any anti-ballistic missile defense system, about which Chief of Staff of the Pacific Fleet’s Submarine Force Command Rear Admiral Arkady Navarsky states: “As its main advantages, the Bulava is easy in its maintenance and can maneuver at its boost stage, which makes the missile invulnerable to any ABM system”—and are invulnerable submarine fired multiple nuclear warhead Bulava ICBMs able to obliterate both the United States and European Union, but whose US Navy counterparts are able to do the same to both Russia and China.

Most shocking to notice in this MoD war assessment, however, this report continues, is the just released major study that found the United States Army “is not ready to fight” a war against either Russia or China—a shocking study that finds only 14% of the US Army is ready for immediate deployment—found that as of 20 May 2021the US Army had 167,370 soldiers forward located in 142 countries—found that the US Army is “relying more on reenlistments” to keep up its strength as it fails to meet its recruiting goals—found that the US Army “is too small to meet even the modest requirements of the 2018 National Defense Strategy (NDS), much less the standard of being able to handle two major regional contingencies simultaneously, which most experts believe is necessary…It also is not sufficiently modern”—found that the US Army only has 300 ground-launched conventional-capable precision missile systems, as opposed to the 15,000 deployed by China and the 12,500 deployed by Russia—and found that the US Army is now the smallest in modern American history.

With the US Army having to modernize its forces every 40-yearsas it did in the 1940s and the 1980s, this report details, and before it could prepare for the same in the 2020s, it saw the socialist Obama-Biden Regime slamming the Budget Control Act of 2011 on all US military forces—the consequences of which devastated the US Army, and in spite of yearly budget increases not able to keep pace with inflation sees it still cancelling multiple equipment programmes—in a shocking report made by the United States Government Accountability Office found that only three of the 46 types of aircraft used by the US military have met their “mission capable rates” for the majority of fiscal years over the past decade—in a beyond shocking report just released by the US Navy, it found that the fiery total destruction of the multi-billion-dollar warship USS Bonhomme Richard was “a completely avoidable catastrophe” caused by sailors not knowing how to fight fires, and none of them knowing all they had to do was push a button that said “Push For Foam To Put Out Fire—and today sees the US military facing a US Congress demanding to know why over 2,000 military firearms were stolen from the Army, Marines, and Air Force throughout the 2010s, with some being used in violent crimes.   

With the United States having just accepted defeat in its longest war in history, the conclusion section of this transcript sees Security Council Members grimly noting that when the Russian Empire signed the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk accepting its defeat in World War I, it was a military defeat that left Russian military forces in shambles, thus allowing radical socialist forces to take control of the entire nation and place it under despotic tyranny for 73-years, from 1918 to 1991—with the US military now left in shambles it explains why warning articles are now appearing in America like “Social Justice Warriors Are Woke Western Imperialists And Just As Arrogant And Patronizing As The Colonizers Of The 18th Century” and “The Woke Mob Are Headed Down The Same Well-Trodden Book-Burning Road As The Conquistadors And The Nazis”—and to what will soon occur should the greater masses of Americans remain oblivious to what’s staring right at them, today it sees it being explained in exhaustive historical detail in the searing article “These Key Similarities Between Lenin’s Red Terror and America’s Woke Culture Reveal Left’s Blueprint For Complete Takeover”, whose final warning states: “This regime will never show mercy of its own free will…It will grow more and more tyrannical, and more and more extreme, until it stops or until it collapses…The worst of the terror is yet to come”.      [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Chicago Art Museum Fires Unpaid Volunteers For Being White

Tyler Durden's Photoby Tyler DurdenThursday, Oct 14, 2021 – 09:35 AM

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

A prestigious art museum in Chicago fired hundreds of unpaid volunteers and replaced them with paid workers because they were too white.

Yes, really.

The Art Institute of Chicago had been able to depend on the help of 122 highly skilled volunteers, mostly older white women, to act as guides to the Museum’s collection of 300,000 works, which they explain in great detail to visitors.

The volunteers also acted as “school group greeters” to help children understand the importance of what they were seeing.

Training requirements for the position were intense, and the volunteers were apparently doing a great job.

But now they’ve now all been dismissed for not being “diverse” enough.

“Many of the volunteers—though not all—are older white women, who have the time and resources to devote so much free labor to the Museum,” reports the Why Evolution is True blog.

But the demographics of that group weren’t appealing to the AIC, and so, in late September, the AIC fired all of them, saying they’d be replaced by smaller number of hired volunteers workers who will be paid $25 an hour. That group will surely meet the envisioned diversity goals.”

“Paying the replacements will not result in more knowledgeable docents. But they won’t be Caucasian; that’s the important thing,” writes Dave Blount.

Unfortunately for the volunteers, a lack of “diversity” is only apparently a problem at one end of the spectrum.A similar thing happened last month when the English Touring Opera (ETO) kicked out half of its orchestral players in an effort to prioritize “increased diversity in the orchestra.”

The act of musical ethnic cleansing was carried out in the interests of following “firm guidance of the Arts Council,” which is a government-funded body.

Once again, this all underscores the fact that the only form of institutionalized racism that remains not only acceptable, but something to be encouraged, is against white people.

I received an email from USDA about commenting on Meat and Poultry Products Derived from Animal Cells?

USDA Seeks Comments on the Labeling of Meat and Poultry Products Derived from Animal Cells The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) published today an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) to solicit comments and information regarding the labeling of meat and poultry products made using cultured cells derived from animals under FSIS jurisdiction. FSIS will use these comments to inform future regulatory requirements for the labeling of such food products.

Cellular agriculture has quickly metamorphized from an internet curiosity to a serious policy issue, and producers and consumers alike are looking for greater clarity about what this new technology might mean for their business, as well as their dinner table.

The introduction of cell-culture based food products is likely to bring substantial changes to meat processing and the livestock production agriculture sector. Recently, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have joined forces to share oversight of the cellular based meat industry. These two federal agencies together will regulate cell cultured food products derived from livestock and poultry tissue based on the respective regulatory expertise of the organizations. A joint statement released last month by the two agencies said they would be working together to “foster these innovative food products and maintain the highest standards of public health.” The FDA will be in charge of regulating the collection, banking and growing of the cells used to make artificial meat, while the USDA will work on the production and labeling of food products.

Due to the increasing complexity of modern food production and governance, the conversation around cell-cultured food technology might be confusing. This article will provide you with useful background information on the scientific history and current state of cell-culture technology in food production. In addition, an overview of the implications of this technology on meat product labeling, meat production, and livestock agriculture will be provided.

Current State of Cell-culture Meat Production

The application of cell-culture based food production is possible through utilizing bioengineering processes that have already been well established in both food and pharmaceuticals. Application of cell-culture technology into meat production shares similar objectives with the modern livestock and meat production industries: maximize production and minimize inputs. In traditional livestock production, improvements to efficiency of tissue production has been accomplished through selective breeding, specialized nutrition programs, improved housing facilities, and advanced veterinary care Cell-cultured meat production seeks to further improve efficiency by optimizing the energy and resource expenditures devoted to building fat and muscle, while eliminating the need to fuel growth of other animal tissues that are considered low value food products in the current American marketplace.

The field of cell-cultured tissue production has been well established in the bioengineering and pharmaceutical production. The application of this technology to meat production, however, has emerged only recently. Pioneering efforts in cell-cultured meat production were inspired two Australian bioengineers who showcased this possibility at an art exhibit in the early 2000s. Specifically, production of cell-cultured meat featured in the art exhibit involved the construction of muscle utilizing embryonic stem cells, on specialty scaffolding, and application of appropriate nutrition and stimulation were able to form muscle fibers that make up the meat product. This conceptual demonstration inspired others to consider the possibility of scaling their technique to an industrial level. Small working groups of tissue engineers and meat scientists continued to advance the field from the mid-2000s to the mid-2010s, either through spin-offs projects on medical research grants or through direct funding from private investors and government research agencies. In 2009, it was reported that the first in vitro pork fillet was produced at Eindhoven University in Holland; however, the fillet was not considered to be fit for human consumption. In 2013, a momentous breakthrough occurred when the first ever cell culture-based beef burger was presented to a celebrity chef at a widely publicized taste test. This event drew journalists, scientists, meat processors, and venture capitalists from around the globe, and their contributions ultimately generated hundreds of millions of dollars that have been invested in cell-culture based agriculture in recent years. To date, while there are now several dozens of cell-culture based meat production companies, including JUST, Memphis Meats, and Mosa Meats, these companies have yet to roll out a product that is ready for public distribution.

The Issue with Labeling and Regulation

Even though cell-culture based meat products are not yet ready for market, the issue of what to call them has already arisen. Standards of identity and labeling for foods have been a controversial topic for as long as agricultural societies have been marketing food to consumers. A familiar example of this controversy is the presence of numerous dairy and dairy-type products seen in the market place. In addition to ‘milk’ produced by livestock, alternative ‘milk’ products are found from soy, almond, and other alternatives that provide the consumer with numerous choices of nutrient-dense liquids to offer their families. The meat industry is not exempt from this food labeling and marketing paradox. For example, ground beef ‘burger’ patties versus plant-based ‘burger’ patties compete for market share and provide consumers with nutritious choices of similar form. However, the labeling controversy contributes to persistent confusion about nutritional value, production methods, and safety of food products among consumers.

Confusion surrounding nutritional value of food products and food production methods are likely at the forefront of the labeling argument for most producers, particularly given evidence that 64% of consumers do not recognize animal meats as a high-quality source of protein. Producers are also aware that labeling concerns extend to production techniques surrounding food products and consumer goods. Meat production methods, regardless of origin from livestock or cell-culture, are likely to be scrutinized by American consumers; many Americans still hold negative attitudes toward certain technology in food production, with genetically modified foods as the primary example of this aversion. This perception can play a critical role in how newly developed products may be perceived when placed next to traditional food products, particularly from animal sources. This emphasizes the point that labeling is a concern for all involved in meat production, not just livestock producers.

Food product labeling is currently regulated as it pertains to certain methods of production (Certified Organic) or food safety. The current debate about labeling for cell-culture meat products is directly related to food safety. To reference our previous ‘burger’ example, in the ‘burger’ industry, USDA-FSIS enforces the labeling and safety requirements for animal sources of protein, whereas plant sources of protein are regulated by FDA. This dynamic may change when the two ‘burger’ choices exist from the same (animal) protein source. Several names and labels have recently surfaced in the media to describe cell-culture based protein foods that originate from animal muscle cells. Some of the popular nomenclature includes the following: “in vitro” meat, “lab-grown” meat, “cultured” meat, “test-tube” meat, “fake” meat, “clean” meat, and most recently, “cell-based” meat. Labeling a food product as “meat” may also influence the regulatory body that oversees production. Remember, products that are currently labeled as “meat”, that are produced and sold in the United States, are regulated by USDA-FSIS. Some have proposed that “clean” or “cultured” meat products, although labeled as “meat” by companies producing cell-cultured food products, be regulated by the FDA, which traditionally oversees plant-based food items. So how will the new meat product be labeled? And, who should regulate cell cultured meat products? These are important questions to consider when discussing the future of food products that originate from alternative proteins and cell-cultured meat products alike as they progress toward becoming a reality in your local markets.

Actions Taken

Regardless of an individual’s personal views on alternative protein foods, this new technology is progressing rapidly, and it may compete for future market share in the meat sector. In an attempt to clarify the “meat” labeling question, the state of Missouri (MO) recently took a step to clearly define that “meat” sold in the state of MO had to come from “livestock or poultry carcass[es] or part[s] thereof” (Senate Bill 627 & 925). This legislation agrees with perspectives shared by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association. While this bit of legislation in Missouri was sparked by plant-based products being labeled as “meat”, the argument on a national level remains to be determined. What will be in a package of beef in the future? Groups opposed to this type of legislation argue that this law is unconstitutional and violates first amendment rights. However, according to the United States government (21 U.S. Code § 601(j)), meat “is made wholly or in part from any meat or other portion of the carcass of any cattle, sheep, swine, or goats”. It is this term ‘in part’ that plays a significant role in interpretation of the law, hence the labeling dilemma.

Concerns about regulation and labeling have been emphasized by numerous livestock organizations, not just the NCBA. These organization include: National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), National Chicken Council (NCC), National Turkey Federation (NTF), American Sheep Industry Association (ASIA), and the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF). In response to a meeting hosted by the FDA on July 12th of 2018, this group of concerned meat and livestock organizations directly addressed the current regulation quandary in a group letter to President Trump on July 26, 2018. This letter indicates the signatories’ support for the USDA to regulate cell-culture based meat products. The group supports current role of USDA in regulation and preservation of fair competition in the meat market place. Through the current role of the USDA in facilitating daily inspection and food safety among current meat production, this group suggests that consistency of this role across all meat products will prevent confusion among consumers from misleading regulations and labeling. In contrast, the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) is currently pushing for separate labels altogether to be used on cell-cultured versus farm-raised meat products. The USCA argues that the labeling of cell-cultured products as “beef” detracts from the brand that cattle producers have worked hard to acquire and uphold for their product. Similarly, cell-cultured meat production stakeholders, including Memphis Meats, sent a joint letter to the White House on August 23rd requesting that cell-cultured food products be regulated by FDA during the product development phase, however, it was also requested in their letter to transition monitoring responsibility to the USDA to ensure post-market safety and labeling compliance. Leaders representing the North American Meat Institute supported letters submitted to the current administration from both the livestock and cell-cultured meat production focused groups. The regulatory debate surrounding cell-cultured meat products is quite dynamic; stakeholder alliances that are evolving may indicate that this debate is far from being settled.

Currently, regulation of safe food production is handled between FDA and USDA-FSIS. FDA inspected food is governed by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) whereas USDA-FSIS establishments comply with the Pathogen Reduction Act and HACCP-based inspection. Although complying with these regulatory acts have similar goals in safety, some of the regulatory statutes differ in design and methods of regulatory compliance. Companies producing cell culture-based meat products argue that the food is produced in a sterile environment, and therefore, should not be subjected to USDA-FSIS oversight, hence the verbiage “clean” meat. It should be similarly noted that meat from healthy livestock is also produced in a ‘sterile’ environment. The act of cutting into the carcass, and thus exposing tissue to outside contaminants, is what initiates the risk of food-borne pathogen contamination. Regardless of the environment where cell-cultured meat is manufactured, the product that is being consumed will eventually be exposed to the same packaging materials and storage conditions as traditional wholesale and retail “meat” products. This inevitable exposure would place cell-cultured meat products at similar risks of contamination as meat derived from whole tissue cuts of livestock. Food safety concerns should remain at the top of the list when considering how to handle regulations among all methods of meat production.

Are Livestock in Limbo?

Major meat packers, including Tyson and Cargill, are recognizing the potential market impacts of alternative protein sources through proactive investment in cell-cultured meat companies and technologies. Partnerships with meat packers may expand in cell-cultured meat production, as JUST (a start-up company specializing in plant-based protein and cellular agriculture) plans to issue commercial product licenses to traditional meat processing companies in exchange for royalties and prepayments. Livestock producers, on the other hand, have a distinct, yet potentially overlapping, set of interests with respect to cell-culture meat production technology.

Relationships of livestock producers to meat packers currently takes on a variety of forms. In the poultry industry, many of the birds raised for meat production are owned by the meat packer, such as Tyson or Perdue. This ownership of animals and meat is referred to as vertically integrated. In the pork industry, vertical integration occurs in full ownership or through contracted relationships with meat packers. These integrated relationships may benefit from the support of their integrators, like Tyson, should the packer choose to differentiate between the meat products they offer. However, they may also face further competition within their own supplier system. For pork, this means that the demands for further processed meats, such as sausages and deli products, may be met more so through the utilization of cell-cultured meat products, as sales of whole pork cuts continue to struggle, outside of bacon. The beef industry is largely segmented, in contrast, and traditionally does not utilize an integrated relationship model with packers. This leaves beef cattle producers without an established relationship with a packer are much more vulnerable to market fluctuations and additional competition from products bearing a brand they have worked hard to promote as a quality product (i.e. “beef”). This may be why the NCBA and USCA have been very vocal in the labeling debate, as discussed earlier, in order to protect the associations with a name they have created. This vulnerability to market trends and fluctuations would be similar for less popular meat products, such as sheep, goat, and other exotic meat choices. Regardless, the relationship between meat packers and cell-culture meat product start-up companies will directly affect integrated and partially integrated producers. Conversations among the packers and the poultry and swine producers are necessary to understand the impacts of this investment interest in cell culture-based meat production.

Interest in strategic engagement with the burgeoning cell-culture meat industry is growing among livestock producers. Indeed, new livestock markets may be created in conjunction with cell culture-based meat production. For example, cellular agriculture depends on cell lines from healthy animals. This dependence will continue to mean a reliance on livestock production, but with an emphasis on fewer animals meeting specific needs. Livestock producers who provide cell lines for cellular agriculture companies may therefore open new windows of opportunity for entrepreneurial producers, focusing on the diversity and specialty (genetics, welfare, health, nutrition) of their livestock products over quantity. In such a system, Kobe beef may transition from being a luxury to one of the most widely consumed meat products. Traditional livestock producers may also find economic opportunities in this expanding industry by leveraging their unique knowledge and expertise in product development, consultation, biosecurity, logistics, supply chains, agribusiness management, and sales. Animal feed growers and processors, on the other hand, may find opportunities in providing feedstock for cell culture growth mediums.

The future of cell-cultured meat and food production could signify dramatic changes to global agricultural markets, however, livestock producers have long weathered risk, uncertainty, and fluctuation in the market by embracing change, innovation, and strategic adaptation. To quote Bill Northey, USDA Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services, “Farmers are problem solvers, they think outside [of] the box.” To be sure, many questions about the meaning and potential of cellular agriculture for traditional agriculture producers and consumers have yet to be answered. Participation in the conversations being held now, and likely those in the future, will be an important step for producers and consumers to make their voices heard as this discussion moves forward. Penn State Extension is continuing to monitor this evolving industry and stands ready to provide science-based consultation, support, and partnership for all stakeholders.
