People on the other side of the planet are dropping dead from
starvation right now, but most people don't even realize that this
people just assume that everything is fine and dandy.
If you are one of those
people that believe that everything is just wonderful, I would
encourage you to pay close attention to the details that I am about
to share with you.
Global hunger is rapidly
spreading, and that is because global food supplies have been
getting tighter and tighter. If current trends continue, we could
potentially be facing a nightmare scenario before this calendar year
Pakistan is not one
of the poorest nations in the world, but the lack of affordable food
is starting to cause panic inside that country.
The following comes
in Mirpur Khas, a city in Pakistan's Sindh province, hundreds of
people lined up for hours outside a park to buy subsidized wheat
flour, offered for 65 rupees a kilogram instead of the current,
inflated rate of about 140 to 160 rupees.
When a few
trucks arrived, the crowd surged forward, leaving several
Harsingh Kolhi, who was there to bring a five kg bag of flour
home for his wife and children, was crushed and killed in the
We are seeing
similar things happen all over the planet.
Just because you
still may have enough food to eat doesn't mean that everybody else
In fact, things
have already gotten so bad that even CNN is admitting that we are
"the worst food crisis in modern history"...
Yet the world
is still in the grips of the worst food crisis in modern
war in Ukraine shakes global
agricultural systems already grappling with the effects of 'extreme weather' and the
conditions may have improved in recent months, but experts do
not expect imminent relief.
That means more
pain for vulnerable communities already struggling with hunger.
It also boosts
the risk of starvation and famine in countries such as Somalia,
which is contending with what
the United Nations describes as a
"catastrophic" food emergency.
Sadly, it isn't
just in Somalia where the food crisis has reached "catastrophic"

say diplomats and humanitarian workers.

read that statement again.
Do you remember
all those years when Sally Struthers was begging us to feed the
starving children in Africa?
Well, the truth is
that conditions are now far worse than when she was making those

whole world is hungry and donors are bankrupt, I don't
know," she said.
"But we're calling out for help, and we do
not see relief."
UN officials are
doing what they can to help, but the truth is that they are being
absolutely overwhelmed by the scope of this crisis.
Over the past 12
months, the number of Africans that are dealing with "acute food
has absolutely exploded…
The number of
East Africans experiencing acute food insecurity - when a lack
of food puts lives or livelihoods in immediate danger - has
spiked by 60% in just the last year, and by nearly 40% in West
Africa, according to the World Food Program (WFP).
Sadly, a lot of
Americans are simply not going to care about what is going on over
there as long as we have enough food over here.
Of course food
supplies continue to get tighter on our side of the planet as well.
According to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture, our corn harvest this year was the
in 15 years…
Last year was a
bad year for corn - the latest US Department of Agriculture
(USDA) report shows drought conditions and extreme weather
wreaked havoc on croplands.

Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas were forced to abandon

That wouldn't be so

Other harvests have
been extremely disappointing too, and that is one of the factors
that has been steadily driving up food prices.

continues to decimate the budgets of American families, the
December report from Moody's Analytics showed that families are
spending an estimated $72 more on food per month than they were

That figure is

shelling out $371 on goods and services more than they were a
In particular, the
price of eggs
has gone completely nuts.
I recently came
an article about one small business owner that is now paying
three times as much for eggs as she once did…
It just seems
like the cost of everything is going up these days and that
includes egg prices, which are affecting local businesses.
"We used to
buy 15 dozen eggs from Sam's for 23 dollars. They are now 68
dollars," said Cindy Gutierrez, the owner of

As we move forward,
the widespread use of "beetleburgers" is one of the "solutions"
that the global elite are starting to push…
Beetleburgers could soon be 'helping' to feed the world,
according to new research.
crawlers' larvae - better known as mealworms - could act as a
meat alternative to alleviate hunger worldwide.
The process uses
a fraction of the land and water and emits a smaller carbon
footprint in comparison of traditional farming.
To make this a
reality, French biotech company
Ynsect is planning a
global network of insect farms, including nurseries and

Doesn't that sound
Of course these "beetleburgers"
will just be a drop in the bucket.
No matter what the
global elite try, they will not be able to stop "the worst food
crisis in modern history"
from getting a whole lot worse.
So I would
encourage you to stock up while you still can.

I have a feeling that 2023 will have lots of "unexpected surprises"
for all of us.
