Its already done.. Sysco has taken over all food distribution basically... the other companies that distrubute the food still buy from sysco owned factory farms.

Excellent post starred and flagged.

We need more folks to come forward and inform the rest of us.

If enough of us came forward and just typed in anything unusual they have witnessed at work (since that is where most of us spend the most time) we might be able to put the puzzle pieces together before we all get clobbered.

I hope any moderator out there rewards this post.



Tuna lasts 4 years, Pasta 3-4 years, Beef Stew 3 years,
n addition to wheat and rice, dry beans are one of the staples of long term food storage. Most dry bean types, including kidney beans, navy beans, pinto beans, and black beans, store well and can be kept for upwards of 30 years when packaged properly. These steps will help you store dry beans for the long term.

Choose grains, flour and beans for your home food storage. The good thing about grains is that, when stored properly in sealed containers, they can last for decades or longer. Try food co-ops, health food stores and bulk food distributors. My local health food store gives a 20% discount on bulk orders. Suggested amounts are for one adult's one-year supply: Whole grain wheat berries, 350 lbs. Other whole grains (barley, corn, oats, popcorn, rye), 100 lbs. Rice (whole, brown, wild) 45 lbs. Pastas (lasagna, egg noodles, spaghetti, wheat, veggie) 35 lbs.

Acquire the necessary supplies to use your food storage items. If you purchased whole grain berries, you need to buy and learn to use a grain mill. For emergency preparedness, I recommend a manual (hand crank) grain mill in case of power loss. A water filter, fire starter, medical kit, lanterns and warm blankets are also key. See link for grain mill, water filter and other supplies under Resources, below.

Excellent links on how to learn about storing food and water.

It's so nice to see some rational thought and common sense around here.
I, like you, do not believe in the NWO. People want to believe that they are part of something bigger; Everyone wants to be Neo.


*NEWSFLASH*
YOU ARE a part of something bigger.
It's like the wind. You cannot touch it, or see it, but you know it's there because you see the effects of it all around you.
Neo? pfft.

Im in total agreement - there is really a need to be "the one" among large portions of conspiracy theory. There is a certain allure to believing you are among the select few who 'really' know what is going on and know the 'truth.' As you said, it makes people feel special, that they are in on something so much larger than themselves.

I am not at all accusing the OP of that - we don't have enough information to draw such a conclusion from these posts at all - but it is definitely a trend that is present in the larger conspiracy theory group. In the case of the OP I think its just a side effect of demonizing the company involved because of the issues she is having with their lawyers over a workers compensation claim. It is natural to demonize a company when they drag you through things like that.

I just wish people would consider the more common explanations before assuming its a global plot against them.

Common? The explanation most commonly believed?

Follow the majority perspective...that mentality disturbs me.

Food distribution take over?

Nah...that could never happen.

In reply to the OP's first few posts:

See.... for reasons like this, I'm going on a cross country trip this spring and summer to learn organic farming, and I might possibly never come back to the grid ever again.

I am completely aware of the food takeover. It is obvious. It is even more obvious when we have Masonic goons coming online telling us nothing to see here folks. I'm sorry, my lord, but there is something to see here.
The food takeover already began a century or more ago when corporations started growing and distributing the food and those corporations not only have legal rights of people, but virtually uninhibited rights to do whatever the hell they want. They might pay a fine here or there, but that's like chump change to them. Food is the single most important resource known to man. If you don't eat, you starve and die. Think about it. Most people you know, do they grow and harvest their own food? No. I don't know anyone besides my next door neighbor who even has a garden where they seasonally grow a few veggies here and there. Nobody in urban and suburban areas (which is the majority of the population of the USA) controls their food. They depend on being employed in order to make little green pieces of paper, in order to be allowed to take a certain amount of food from Food Distribution Centers called grocery stores. It all feeds into one big system. Governments, religions, corporations, banks, economies... all one big system shrouded in many names. Once that system begins failing, expect it to lash back, and begin hording its power in order to survive.

This is the beginning of the end of this system. I'm sure our keepers, who aren't at all these rich elite you think are the enemy, will replace this system with another system... unless we begin to understand the games being played upon our species.

"Masonic goons"


If you want to believe the boogey man is out in every corner to get you, be my guest. No, nothing to see here - its all just a plot to take over food distribution...for no reason anyone understands and for a goal that makes no sense. We seriously should just ignore reason and run around in circles acting hysterical about it, or spend money on things to prepare us for a NWO food take over that is likely to never ever happen.

Is it at all reason-able to submit all of your means of authority over your and your families' and your children's childrens' childrens' well being to some giant faceless emotionless conscienceless entity?

That's not reason. That's submission out of fear, and fear is irrational and very unreasonable.

You being a Mason should be a little more understanding of how the system works.... or are you being used as well? Think about it. My suggestion to you is that you are according to your name a low level mason, so you can still get out and rejoin the human race and think on a human level, instead of the level of a mere robot of a system within a system within a system in which it seems you don't understand at least slightly or else you would not have to join some brotherhood fraternity. That goes for most people on here, robots of the system... but I dunno sorry I had some bad experiences with masons and I get heated easily with masons who preach understanding and arcane uplifting life changing wisdom, yet do not understand themselves.

Reason is only as reasonable as you are. And, Mr. Mason... you cannot gain wisdom or power by submitting whatever control you do have, which may be zero at all, to a greater entity. There is, in reality, no greater entity than each and every one of us as individual beings, and we should take back control of the means to feed ourselves. Independence, my ass...as of this moment, anyway.

No offense, mason. Just speaking my mind truthfully.

Frankly I am not sure what you mean, if you are on topic and talking about buying food - yes, perfectly reasonable. We live in a organized and civilized society where food markets exist its perfectly reasonable.

Yet again I must remind you that you seem to think freemasonry is something that it is not, and it is really completely unrelated to the topic at hand. And one more time I will remind you that my nickname is a parody of people who actually believe in false entities like "high" or "low" level mason - there is no high, medium, or low level mason.

This "rage against the system" type of rant is perfectly fine if it works for you, but please stop linking unrelated things to do it (like my membership in freemasonry). And how nice of you to sit in judgment and proclaim that I don't understand myself - I think I know myself better than you do.

Yet again you are talking in riddles in parables based off a belief in something that does not exist.

I have a relative who is a long haul trucker for one of the big freight companies that has told me similar stories about these giant food/staple distribution and control facilities that have military guarding things and are so big that they have their own hotels and police forces inside. I had hoped he was exaggerating. This is worrisome. I guess I better buy some seeds and garden tools. Anybody have any suggestions for where to start?

Just to clarify, our experience with this event took place back in 2003, and so it is not some breaking news that I bring to the table, it is a slow simmering compilation of evidence to get a clear vision of the bigger picture.


Did you know that in 2003 there was a FBI investigation? Might account for the screwy phone calls.
kansascity.bizjournals.com...

Associated Wholesale Grocers Inc. was defrauded of more than $650,000 through a scheme involving fake invoices for products and goods it never received, according to a federal grand jury indictment.
Aponte Gomez, 45, and Arlene Francis, 45, both of Parkville; William Morrison, 42, of Escambia, Fla.; and Crystal Hall, 25, of Barling, Ark., are charged with defrauding the Kansas City, Kan., wholesale grocer and Elite Logistics Inc., U.S. Attorney for Kansas Eric Melgren said in a release Thursday.

A 31-count indictment from the federal grand jury in Kansas City, Kan., includes charges of wire fraud, money laundering, witness tampering and obstructing a criminal investigation. The crimes allegedly took place at various times in 2002, 2003 and 2004 in Johnson County, Melgren said.
Associated Wholesale Grocers is the nation's second-largest retailer-owned grocery wholesaler, serving more than 1,500 stores in 21 states, Melgren said.

Elite Logistics is a company that manages maintenance at AWG's operations in Kansas City, Kan., and Springfield, Mo. Gomez was employed by Elite as a maintenance department manager for AWG's warehouse in Kansas City, Kan.

According to the indictment, Morrison, Hall and Francis presented themselves as employees of an entity called Innovative Cleaning as part of a scheme with Gomez to cause AWG and Elite to receive fraudulent invoices for products that had not been delivered and services that had not been performed. Gomez signed paperwork falsely confirming receipt of products and services from Innovative Cleaning, leading to the defendants fraudulently receiving $652,549 from AWG and Elite, Melgren said.

Money paid to Innovative Cleaning flowed through accounts at Peoples Bank in Overland Park, Midwest United Credit Union in Kansas City, Midwest United Credit Union in Pleasant Valley, Mo., Midwest United Credit Union in Blue Springs, Mo., and Community America Credit Union in Lenexa, Melgren said.

Additionally, Gomez allegedly paid Hall to lie to FBI agents about Innovative Cleaning and to attempt to avoid contact with the agents.
In a separate forfeiture count, the government seeks $652,594.36 obtained from the crimes.
All four are charged with nine counts of wire fraud, Melgren said. In addition, Morrison and Francis each is charged with four counts of money laundering, and Gomez is charged with eight counts of money laundering, two counts of tampering with a witness and three counts of obstructing a criminal investigation.

Trucking firm lays off workers
Journal Record, The (Oklahoma City), Jun 16, 2000
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Elite Logistics has laid off 19 Teamsters drivers and eliminated other positions -- two weeks after more than 1,400 union members returned to work at Associated Wholesale Grocers under Elite management. Officials at Elite say they're not finished. They plan to drop their job roster of drivers by about 70 employees at AWG warehouses in Springfield and Kansas City, Kan.
Mike Sprague, president of Elite's parent company, Tibbett & Britten, said the layoffs were unavoidable due to business AWG lost during its four-month labor dispute with the Teamsters. During the dispute at least one giant supermarket chain, Dillons food stores, left AWG and took an estimated 11 percent to 14 percent of the company's business, he said.


AWG didn't sell, they just outsourced management–and you may have the wrong Elite Logistics-there's a bunch of companies using that name.
www.iienet2.org...

During the spring of 2000, there was a labor
dispute between AWG and its local union. AWG decided to outsource the warehouse management to Elite Logistics, Inc. (member company of Tibbett & Britten Group North America - one of the largest 3PL service supplier worldwide). The Kansas City Facility is nearly 1 million square feet and it has all temperature warehouses: Dry Grocery, Produce, Dairy, Meat, and Freezer. The site ships an average of 1.2 million cases per week and/or approximately 110 loads per day. For more information visit

for the common home owner, buying, storing, rotating, all these rather huge amounts of food products, is just not going to happen. it would fill up half my garage, and cost thousands of dollars. so.. alot of people are going to be hurting. that is why when the sh-t hits the fan, you'll see runs on the stores. this may sound stupid, but what i'm going to do is have several thousands of dollars on hand, and pay close enough attention to that day when TSHTF, to grab my list along with my money and go on a shopping spree. buying a month or so worth of food in an urban enviorment is probably all i'm going to need, plus a few boxes of ammo, before the decision will be made for me or by me, whether i'm going to survive. chaos, is just that...and is unpredictable to say the least. and the best laid plans of mice and men......well you get the direction i'm heading.

This mentality is a huge problem in this country. We have a tendency to see something like this potential problem and think that it's too big for us to do anything about. Yes, it would cost thousands of dollars, but if you start now with a little bit at a time, it doesn't have to be a couple thousand dollars at once. I'm sure you aren't saving for your retirement by putting in a huge lump sum of money and forgetting about it.

How about buying a couple extra cans each time you buy groceries. In a matter of a couple months, you will have stored up quite a bit of food and at only a couple bucks a week. And you really don't need to start out with buying bulk grains. Just get the stuff you would normally get, beef stew, ravioli, veggies, etc.

As for storage space, yep, it takes space. However, a couple shelves along the wall of that garage would be a great start. I don't have a garage, so the basement is where my stuff goes.

I hate to say it, but these are really just excuses to avoid the potential problem. This thing could never happen and what would you be out? Just some space since you really should store what you eat. If you store what you eat and rotate the food, you are really just spreading your food buying out over the course of a long time. But what if this DOES happen? Then you and your families could be in a world of hurt.
