The world currently is facing the WORST global food crisis since World War 2, according to the United Nations. But the food shortages we are experiencing here in America today are not JUST due to Russia’s war in Ukraine…they’re the result of several issues plaguing our nation, like Biden’s skyrocketing inflation, supply chain problems, labor shortages, and more. One U.S. Senator recently warned a worldwide FAMINE could take place in the next few years. Whether or not his prediction comes true, it IS time to prepare.

GLENN: Okay. So I want to go through a couple of -- a couple of things. First of all, there's real problems in China.
China is still closing everything down. And their society is collapsing. Shanghai, there are stories now, and it's amazing. Because these are Americans that live in Shanghai. And in the story, that was I can't remember. It was an American journal. They did not want to be identified, in fear of repercussions.
And what they're saying is, as soon as this lockdown is over, I'm out of here.
I love the quote from one of them. That said, the problem with this is, there is no one to turn to for help.
Bingo. Now you understand the problem, with an all-encompassing government. Whenever they decide, they're going to do something, there's no one to turn for help.
Who is going to help you?
You going to call the police? Because that's the government. You going to call the politician, because that's the government
You going to call the military? Because that's the government. You going to call the media? Because that's the government.
So it's falling apart badly, and the ships that are stuck in port, and trying to get into port, unlike anything the world has ever seen. This is much worse than it was with covid. Remember when we couldn't get anything?
Now it's causing all kinds of problems. And we are just at the beginning of this story.
This is an epic black swan event.
And with the war in Ukraine, and the bird flu pandemic. I don't know if anybody has been paying attention to that. But that's causing real problems here in the United States.
And this is -- this is assuming now, that in the next 12 months, there are no natural disasters.
We are now facing the worst global food crisis, since World War II.
I want you to think about this. The worst food crisis since World War II. This is a problem, Senator Roger marshal said, that we are going into a worldwide famine, and, quote, it is definitely going to happen.
Now, let me just give you a couple of things, that just, you know, the -- the low-hanging fruit here, so you can understand what's coming.
You're going into the grocery store. Have you noticed that there's not empty shelves. But they're not as full as they usually are.
If you've noticed that, you might have noticed that in the canned dog food. Canned dog food. Is -- there's starting to be a shortage in America of canned dog food. Not going to be able to get it. Why?
A couple of reasons. Chicken and turkey. Because of the Asian flu. Now going through our bird population. Which we are just slaughtering turkeys and chickens, left and right. You can't get cheap food for your dog. You can't get the chicken and the turkey for the dog food.
Plus, there's an aluminum can shortage. There's a shortage of aluminum. Those two things are only going to get worse.
Now, if you also are heading into summer, wherever you live. And there are pools around. Try buying chlorine. You're about to see a growing problem with chlorine.
The pandemic is not the problem this time. This is Hurricane Laura in late 2020. It -- it leveled the facilities of a major chlorine manufacturing plant in Louisiana.
Forty percent of all of our chlorine is made at that plant. Well, that was two years ago. But why isn't that plant back online?
Because of the building supply shortage.
They can't get it back online, because they don't have the supplies, they need. To rebuild it.
There's also the baby formula shortage, that is continuing, and getting worse.
Have I tried to buy bulk food?
You know, I kind of hang in the circle of preppers, and my church is big on this.
Try to go to -- they're always like, we got food. We got food. Don't worry, you can just come buy the food, at cheap prices. You can't buy it. You can only buy it at limited supplies now.
That is remarkable. Rice is going to go up. Rice is going to go way up. The food shortages are going to get worse. And we will feel them here. Over in Europe, they are already rationing cooking oil. Because of the Ukrainian -- Ukrainian war.
Inflation supply chain, shortages of energy, food, raw materials, and labor are all going to accelerate this.
And the war is only going to make things worse. Which brings me to two things. First of all, Russia has just cut off a major supply of natural gas, to Poland. Gazprom just cut off the gas supplies, to two countries, that are both NATO members.
And it marks the first time, of -- of us being able to say, yeah. Ronald Reagan said this would happen. Why did you let them do this?
But they have become dependent on Gazprom, and dependent on Russian fuel. And now they've turned it off. This is the first time, since the Soviet era, that Russia reacted this way.
So now, gas supplies are down. We're not doing anything about it here. In fact, Putin -- I mean, Biden is delaying more things that we could do to help with the gas supply. And he's saying, no at this point, for environmental reasons.
But here's what's really disturbing: Listen to this story from the Washington Examiner. Near the beginning of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, which commenced February 24th, U.S. Intel provided to the Ukrainians help that defeated a Russian operation, that was meant to rest control of the airport near Kyiv. They helped, and it gave the Ukrainians the ability to shoot down a Russian transport plane, carrying hundreds of Russian troops, according to NBC News.
Had Russia been able to maintain the control of the airport, its forces captured it for a short time, Moscow could have used it to solve many of its logistical and supply problems.
Various U.S. defense and intelligence officials have spoken in broad terms, about the intelligence sharing with Ukrainians while frequently choosing not to get into specifics.
However, in a statement, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, told the outlet, quote, we are regularly providing detailed timely intelligence to the Ukrainians on the battlefield to help them defend their country against Russian aggression, and we will continue to do so.
General HEP Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the House Armed Services Committee. That, quote, we have. And I'm not going to reveal in an open hearing, the intelligence, we have collected. And how we did all that.
But this war has arguably been the most successful intelligence operation in U.S. military history. The chairman also pointed out, that the U.S. played a significant role in providing Ukraine with the tools to ensure Russia it not achieve air superiority. Quote, the fundamental significance of air defense systems, in order to deny an opponent, that ability to achieve air superiority and supremacy. That's what's been done by the Ukrainians. But it was done with a huge amount of help from the United States with stinger missiles.
Also, because of our intelligence feeds, end quote.
Why the hell are we saying these things?
There is a great article in the Federalist. Listen to this. As the war in Ukraine drags on, the United States is making a clash with Russia, more likely, with each passing week.
What are we to make of a comment from Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that the Biden administration's goal in Ukraine is to see Russia weakened to the degree that they can't do the kinds of things that is done in invading Ukraine.
Austin made the remark in a press conference with the Secretary of State. After the pay for met with Ukraine's president Zelinsky in Kyiv.
In what was the highest level visit by U.S. officials since Russia invaded Ukraine. One obvious conclusion we can draw from Austin's comment is that the Biden administration is now committed openly to a policy of escalation within in Ukraine. The White House intends on keeping the war on Ukraine, alive, with the stated goal of weakening Moscow. By continuing to pour new and more advanced weaponry on to the war-ravaged country.
Indeed, Austin and Blinken announced a new round of military aid on Monday to Ukraine, bringing the total amount to $3.7 billion since the invasion began.
After resisting pressure early in the conflict, to support Ukraine, with advanced weapon systems, the Biden administration has changed course. It is now preparing to send heavy artillery. Helicopters. Armored personnel carriers. Anti-aircraft radar systems. Advanced attack drones. And other weapons.
Austin told members of the press, the Defense Department won't just send weapons. But will expand military training for Ukrainian service members in the region, on certain weapons systems being provided.
Quote, delivering all of this aid is an escalation of the U.S. involvement in the war, senior U.S. military officers, at a facility in Poland. Described accelerating logistical network for supplying weapons and material to Ukraine.
So they are sending all of this stuff over. They're sending it into Ukraine within from Poland, by rail (?) road.
Now, did you hear that after these clowns were over, in Ukraine, meeting with Zelinsky, that just after they left the country, Russia bombed the train stations?
How did Blinken leave Ukraine? By train.
Minutes later, they bombed the train stations. Imagine if there would have been a timing issue on that one. What was it the foreign minister said, from Russia, this week?
STU: Certifying a lavrov, you'll remember him from (?) much of the Trump/Russia talk, back in the day, that the media was so obsessed with. He came out, and on state-run media. Said, the danger for World War III was real. The danger is serious. It is real. You can't underestimate it. Also, spoke about the possibility of nuclear war. Being real. And, you know, all of this stuff doesn't make any sense. You're totally right, saying, you know, we shouldn't be announcing all this stuff all the time.
Even like, for example, the Blinken visit, right?
They announced this. What's-his-face from Great Britain went over there. And we found out (?) that's the way it always happens.
STU: We instead, say it in advance. So, on Saturday, Blinken is going to be there, our Secretary of State. Now, that opens you up to all sorts of issues. For example, even the type of thing where a rogue group of Ukrainians, right? Who want to draw us into this war, could -- could affect that situation. What if one of our officials is over there, and God forbid something happens to them?
Of course, obviously the suspicion immediately is going to be Russian forces. But it could be anybody. And if that were to happen, we could be drawn into this war. We tell them in advance, we're going to be there. Seems like a massive mistake to me. Luckily, nothing happened. As you pointed out, it was pretty close.
They're saying, the Russians are signaling to us, don't come. Don't do this. Don't be involved in this. And we keep saying, well. Not only are we going to be involved in it. We're going to embarrass you publicly, by telling everyone, that we're involved in it. And you can't do anything about it.
Now, as Russia gets more and more desperate. And cornered. What are they going to do?
GLENN: So let me tell you what some are speculating is cottage. And it's the key date of May 15. (?) I'll give it to you here in just a second.
When you tons and tons to charity. You probably are likable me. (?) you want to make sure it's a worthy cause. It does what it says it's going to do. The Tunnel2Towers Foundation. Charity navigator rates them four out of four. Since 9/11, Tunnel2Towers Foundation has been supporting America's heroes with their families. So when somebody goes down a first responder or military service member. They don't come home. And there's children left behind. They pay the mortgage, to lift the financial burden off of that family. So they can do be stable.
Catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Tunnel2Towers builds mortgage-free smart homes. Enabling the severely injured, to live (?) Tunnel2Towers, is gifting tiny homes, to homeless veterans. This is who we are. This is how Americans behave.
And you can do be involved for $11 a month. At T2T.org. T2T.org. It's Tunnel2Towers.org. (?) help them out. T2T.org. Ten-second station ID.
GLENN: So if we look at what is -- if we look at what is happening over in Ukraine, and you look at where things could head, you have Putin and Russia painted into a corner.
Military seemingly teetering on collapse. They have zero replacement capacity for most of the weapons systems that they've lost. Too many high-tech components. And unless he can dramatically change the narrative in Russia, he needs a million volunteers to join the army. And that would be a solid six months, before any of the new recruits, could come online.
So there's two ways he can handle this. Surrender. Or up the stakes.
So it's not the 15th, it's the ninth. May 9th, say huge holiday and celebration in Russia. It's the day that -- it's the day that they beat the Nazis. Remember, they lost like 20 million people in the war against the Nazis. In Russia.
It was a horrific thing. So they remember this. And this is a huge day of celebration. There is a shot that May 9th is such an important day. That Putin will use May 9th as a launching ground.
Possibly -- I mean, some people think nukes, tactical inunction, which he will say, oh. We're not bluffing. Your turn.
It wouldn't be an ICBM kind of thing. This is a -- you know, a tactical nuke. It will be used, you know, over troops or something like that. But it is a nuke.
How would we respond?
That could be happening, as soon as May 9th. Just say a prayer, that everybody stays calm, until that goes. And somehow or another, we don't inflame the situation.
I think it is not insane. Historically speaking, the progressives, the Fabian socialists in -- in Great Britain, they wanted World War I. They wanted it, with bated breath. They helped egg it along.
I -- I just fear that there are those, all over the world, that feel the same way about this. They want The Great Reset's cover.
