NOT A JOKE: Why is the Government stealing/hoarding/hiding raisins?
I live in a small farming community outside of Chicago and overheard a group of corn farmers talking about a 60-something y/o farmer who owes the Government-

OVER ONE MILLION POUNDS OF RAISINS & $650,000 IN FINES BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO HAND THEM OVER.

They aren't raisin farmers however they were outraged on behalf of all raisin farmers who are having their crops stolen without compensation. I couldn't believe it so I looked online and found they were not kidding! Here's the link to one of the stories->>>>>>>>


[link to www.breitbart.com]

What I want to know is:

1. What is the Government doing with the raisins? (They aren't being donated or sold as far as I can tell)

2. Is there a reason they don't want the public to have raisins? (Such as....they are actually good for us or not controlled by Monsanto)

3. How are they utilizing a depression-era law to steal from farmers and getting away with it?

Ok, I'm done. If anyone could possibly shed some light on this it would be appreciated!

Thanks!

But then they make us pay for it via taxes.

Theft indicates a more sinister use.


Considering Raisins must sit in the sun for some time, there MIGHT be chemtrail proof or radiation from Fukushima collecting in the raisins.

Or the raisins are perfect carriers for micro-robots designed to be sold back into the market.

Seriously thought, they probably are very beneficial, and or have some kind of blocking effect upon a chemical which the government want to pollute your body with. For instance it may inhibit fluoride or aluminium, or it may help eradicate radiation.

The government has been doing this for quite a long time, many decades in fact. They have never even attempted to justify it, only enforce it. The courts have always ruled in favor of the government on this particular law, and never asked the government to explain the need, especially since the orginal need was for war supplies.

Re: NOT A JOKE: Why is the Government stealing/hoarding/hiding raisins?
I have just discovered the probable reason.
[link to stealthsurvival.blogspot.com]

THEY CAN BE USED FOR SURVIVAL
THEY STORE FOR VERY LONG PERIODS WITHOUT GOING BAD ESPECIALLY IN AIRTIGHT GLASS JARS.
THEY ARE A SUPERFOOD.


Raisins are a survival super food as they contain most all the necessary nutrient contents for good health.

When stored for a long period of time, the sugars inside the raisins will crystallize. This does not affect their use as the sugar grains can be dissolved by soaking the raisins in warm water or when used in cooking

A single serving of raisins contains approximately 110 to 130 calories, has a fairly high water content per serving, most all of the essential macro and micro nutrients that are required by the body and only lack significant amounts of vitamin A. They also are low in cholesterol.


OBVIOUSLY THE GOVERNMNET ELITES LIKE TO KEEP A HUGE SUPPLY OF THE THINGS DOWN IN THEIR D.U.M.B.'S SO IN THE EVENT OF A DISASTER OR WAR, THEY CAN RETREAT AND HAVE A FULL SUPPLY OF A SUPERFOOD.

Only plausible reason,.

This is some seriously screwed up bullshit.

When we talk about government waste, I never realized it included our food reserves. The Federal government made 65 million dollars by stealing raisins and blew it on overhead and administrative staff?

Holy shit. We are truly messed up. Where's the reset button, please?

Has anyone priced raisins in last few days? I have not, just wondering if the store prices are changing.
On the day when the wagons come
I just pray that you let me on


Matthew 6:9-13

King James Version (KJV)


9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.



Matthew 24:42 - Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

All I find so far is that there are many health benefits in eating raisins, like for example the ones that are mentioned here.

My best guess is that the government doesn't want people to be (too) healthy, by keeping market prices higher than they have to be.

My thought is two fold. This one, price fixing, and the other is stockpiling foods for emergencies.

By using a combination of vacuum packing and irradiation, which is really more similar to microwaving than anything else, you can keep foods shelf stable for decades.

They've been doing this for nearly thirty years, so I imagine they have a lot by now.


The question of why however, would only be a guess. Even what I put forth here really is, but I suspect it has some backing.

There could be another reason.

I just don't know what it might be.
