"Never let a crisis go to waste."
It looks like this might be the Biden administration's new motto as they continually create more new crises daily.
As the President of the United States recently, accidentally, admitted it looks like food shortages might be a real problem soon, due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine causing global market disruptions in wheat and especially fertilizer.
Biden's USAID official and former Obama UN ambassador, Samantha Power, seems to be a little too excited at the prospect of food shortages here and abroad.
She literally said the line! She said out loud "never let a crisis go to waste."
But how she plans to abuse this crisis is maybe more sinister than the open lobbying for fuel shortages by the green energy gang.
Fertilizer shortages are real now because Russia is a big exporter of fertilizer. And even though fertilizer is not sanctioned, less fertilizer is coming out of Russia.
As a result, we're working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost, and this may hasten transitions that would have been in the interest of farmers to make eventually anyways, so...
Never let a crisis go to waste.
Do they ever realize how evil they sound when they say things like this?
Let's cut straight to the chase.
A hard transition off of chemical fertilizers and to "natural" solutions like composting and manure would mean a man-made economic and hunger disaster that is entirely avoidable.
Samantha Power believes it would be better for farmers if there were NO chemical fertilizers, only natural solutions.
Well, I don't think that Sri Lanka would agree.
That nation already tried Samantha Power's solution and the results have been utterly disastrous.
In a campaign manifesto for the presidential election in 2019 titled "Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour", which became a policy framework after a landslide victory, Rajapaksa proposed providing Sri Lankans with food without harmful chemicals.
He pushed the reform through in a single season rather than over several years, adding to confusion across Sri Lanka's farms including around Agbopura, a quaint hamlet some 220 km northeast of the country's main city of Colombo.
"Farmers around here really tried everything possible to grow their paddy. They applied coconut fertiliser, liquid fertiliser, compost... basically, anything they could get their hands on," said Chanuka Leshaan Karunaratne, a major paddy trader in Agbopura.
Yields among the area's 500 farmers appear to have dropped by half, Karunaratne said, sitting at his warehouse on the main road that runs through Agbopura.
In this area, yields are down 50%!!!
Half of the food that would be produced this year simply disappeared because of these so-called "natural solutions."
There's a reason "organic" produce costs more than twice as much as regular produce. They are losing so much more product because they can't use chemical fertilizers or pest controls.
This may not have a huge impact on Power or her elite friends, but the average American would be destroyed if the price of groceries went up another 50%, even without inflation.
But, you know, whatever is good for the planet.
Disregard the real people who have to live here.
