Soros Moves to Control American Food and Grain Production...Created price Increases and Shortages?
Financier and progressive activist George Soros is formulating a move to control food and grain production by purchasing grain elevators in late March in several parts of the United States through his Soros Managment Fund’s backed Gavilon Grain. With purchases made in March, Gavilon Grain will become the third largest grain company behind Cargill, and Archer-Daniels Midland.
Wow...This one actually leaves me speechless, and I am used to seeing these kinds of "power grabs" by Mr Soros, but this one reaches into the rhelm of surrealism.
With strong ties to the Obama administration, Soros now has both the economic, and political clout to begin consolidation of purchasing and shipping domestic agriculture around the world.
U.S. grain firm Gavilon Grain said on Thursday it will buy Union Elevator and Warehouse’s 16 grain elevators in the Pacific Northwest , the company’s second big purchase of U.S. grain facilities in the last six months.
When food brokers consolidate into just a few large companies controlling the majority of a market, then prices can be set not by supply and demand, but by corporate decisions and manipulation of supply
Once again, we see that word "manipulation" in association with Mr Soros...Usually it is financial manipulation, but now it involves food distribution and pricing. Wow again.
With George Soros’s making this move in backing Gavilon Grain’s purchases to control food and grain distribution in the United States, and becoming the third largest grain company in the country, it will lead to the same results that we see in the energy markets as oil is controlled by a small group of corporations, and the price can be dictated by an artificial control over its supply.
This is yet another fascinating and ominous development as we see Mr Soros' continued efforts to control the world.

Obama plan: 'Spike' energy costs, kill 1.4 million jobs
Before the next article, lets also recall that Mr Soros was behind Obama's run to the presidency:
Even before he was elected president, Barack Obama warned he would "bankrupt" the coal industry if necessary and purposefully spike Americans' utility bills in order to force the nation into using less and cleaner forms of energy.
Now, industry partners warn, the White House is making good on that promise by issuing a new rule that will raise some Midwesterners' electricity bills over 23 percent by 2016 and cost an estimated 1.44 million jobs by 2020
Earlier this week, the Environmental Protection Agency finalized its new Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which requires coal companies to dramatically cut sulfur dioxide and nitrogen emissions – which the EPA says travel across state lines and contribute to ozone pollution – by 2014.
The study details a dramatic leap in the number of coal plants that would need to be retired almost immediately to meet the EPA regulations, a consequent surge in natural gas prices to meet electricity demand, a loss of jobs at four times the pace of new energy job creation and a region-by-region projection of electricity costs through the year 2025.
And it is all being done for mythical global warming, which doesn't exist.

The next article makes one want to go back and re-read Ezekiel 38-39, where it seems clear that God has placed Gog into his unique position at that particular time in history. Perhaps the author of this article is on to something here after all:
Vladimir Putin 'sent to Russia by God'
"To be honest, I think of Putin as a person who was sent to Russia by fate and the Almighty at a difficult hour," Vladislav Surkov, the first deputy administration chief, said on Chechen television, according to the Interfax news agency.
But Mr Putin has remained the country's most popular politician and has been forced to deal with at times peculiar signs of appreciations from his fans and political supporters.
Mr Putin has been made the hero of pop songs and brands of vodka and even a Moscow nightclub party.
'Air flotilla' activists clash with IDF in West Bank
Pro-Palestinian activists that managed to pass border control at Ben-Gurion Airport as part of the "air flotilla" arrived in the West Bank on Saturday and clashed with security forces in Nabi Saleh.
The incident began when a group of settlers, accompanied by security forces, went to a local spring in the area. Over 150 protesters, including those that took part in the "air flotilla," gathered at the scene. IDF soldiers reacted by firing tear gas in an attempt to disperse the protesters.
How about some good news today?
U.S. Congress Opposes PA Statehood Bid
The US House of Representatives voted 407-6 to pass a non-binding resolution backing the suspension of funds to the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority should it pursue its bid for a unilateral declaration of statehood by the United Nations in September.
The resolution comes a week after the US Senate unanimously approved a similar resolution.
The House resolution also calls for the Obama administration to consider suspending aid the the PA in light of its unity deal with Hamas terror organization. The resolution is non-binding because, constitutionally, foreign policy is the purview of the President of the United States.
It may be non-binding, but at least the group (Congress) who represents "the people" have made their voices clear.
"We stand by Israel as our most valued ally. It is time for the Palestinian Authority to accept a peaceful solution to this conflict," said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.
The administration has said the PA push for a UN vote on its statehood this fall has not helped the peace process, a point echoed by lawmakers. The US has signaled to the PA it will exercise its security council veto at the UN should the matter be brought to a vote.
"What, exactly, would UN General Assembly recognition of a Palestinian state do for the Palestinians? Absolutely nothing," said Rep. Howard Berman of California, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. "It would be seen by Israel and many others as an act of bad faith, creating yet another obstacle to successful talks."
Amen. This is welcome news in the midst of our world, as we know it, today.
