Good News: Cory Booker Wants Government Takeover Of Food System To Solve Climate Emergency (scam)

Back in the early part of the 21st Century, myself and several others were saying “this is almost entirely about a government takeover of everything, including your money and freedom. They want to use global warming, now called Climate Change, as a platform for this.” So many said we were crazy. Yet, the facts were right there. And climate cultists keep showing this is not about science or the environment or anything like that

Cory Booker: We Can’t Solve Climate Change or Inequality Without Fixing Our Food System

On the national stage, Sen. Cory Booker (D.-N.J.) is probably best known for his swash-buckling stint as Newark’s mayor, his unsuccessful bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, and his relationship with movie star Rosario Dawson. One aspect of his political career that doesn’t get nearly enough ink: Over the past several years, he has emerged a genuine agriculture-policy maverick—someone determined to shake up the stodgy, corporate-friendly status quo that hangs over the DC sausage factory when it comes to laws that shape our food system.

Why? The system pretty much works. I have a JVC stereo receiver from 1987 that works just fine. Sure, there is no optical input, and the new TV, like so many, has no RCA type audio outputs, so, I got a little device that takes the optical output from TV and converts to RCA, for those few times I want to stream audio from the TV (it allows me to also use the Bluray as a CD player with better sound than the headphone jack to stereo method). I have a Carlos acoustic guitar from early 80’s. It works fine. Why get another? Sure, maybe I just want something new. Neither is as important as the food system, which works well. What would be the point?

Last Friday afternoon, Booker took a breather from one of the most fraught, frenzied weeks on Capitol Hill in recent memory to chat with me for a Mother Jones live event about his journey from urban mayor to the Hill’s most prominent voice for a progressive, multi-racial version of populism in farm country. Food policy “touches on everything from climate change to rebuilding rural America to racial justice,” he argued, adding, “but it’s the area I find that leaders know the least about.” You can watch the whole conversation here: (video at link, if you want)

Why do they need to know that much? Why do they need to do anything? Now, Booker has a few small, and legitimate complaints, such as dumping cheap, unhealthy food in the crap, urban areas Democrats run, along with “running black farmers off their lands” (FYI: this happened to farmers of all colors and nationalities by Big Ag, too), but

At the end, with our time running out, Booker turned the tables and volleyed a question at me: “How do we make food policy the center of the progressive agenda?” Naming climate change, future pandemics, and racial injustice, he stressed that “anything that a progressive says they’re really worried about, I can point to it and say: We we will not solve that unless we start focusing on the American food system.” In just two years, right after the midterm elections in 2022, he added, Congress will have to renew the farm bill, the sprawling twice-a-decade legislation that governs US food and farm programs and shapes what we eat and how we grow it.

In other words, a complete government takeover of the agriculture sector, one which already has an enormous amount of regulation put on it, all in the name of ‘climate change’ and raaaaacism and health. This is all for your own good, you know, putting your Betters in charge.

    The farm bill has always helped red states tge most a d of course that also means Iowa that has important early presidential caucuses Those states produce grains to feed animals not humans
    Our veggies don’t come from there
    The top states for obesity are all red states Does BIG GOVERNMDNT have any role in protecting the health if its citizens? I think so. And I don’t think it should be telling them to drink Bleach or eat animal dewormer to cure covid and I think k that government should mandate the use of seat belts, children safety seats, and vaccines

      Once again our resident Forrest Gump opines.

      “The farm bill has always helped red states tge most a d of course that also means Iowa that has important early presidential caucuses Those states produce grains to feed animals not humans”

      Farm bills will naturally help farming states, you know those red states that feed the demofascist billionaires who brainwash our kids in the blue states. BTW, those states produce a shit load more than just “grains to feed animals and not humans”. That’s just pure bullshit. You should also know that those “animals” are used to feed humans too.

      “Our veggies don’t come from there”

      Sure they do. our veggies come from all over. Why do you hate red state farmers so much?

      “The top states for obesity are all red states Does BIG GOVERNMDNT have any role in protecting the health if its citizens? I think so. And I don’t think it should be telling them to drink Bleach or eat animal dewormer to cure covid and I think k that government should mandate the use of seat belts, children safety seats, and vaccines”

      The top cities for obesity and crime and welfare and depression and covid are all blue cities. Of course government has a role in protecting the health of it’s citizens So what? When did the government tell people to drink bleach or eat animal dewormer? Spreading leftist lies and propaganda again there, Forrest?

      I think the government should mandate nothing that applies to personal action on bodily invasion unless it is absolutely urgent.

      So you wan the government to mandate children’s safety seats but not stop the murder of a million babies through abortion? You are one fuked up dude.

      Fascist! Fuk joe biden!

    Senator Booker did not advocate the government takeover of food production. He did point out that the government already has a significant impact on food production by way of agricultural legislation, the FDA and the USDA, and not always for the benefit of the American people, but more often for the benefit of food corporations.

  3. Dana says:

    We have so much food that tons and tons of it gets thrown away. We have food stamps SNAP to enable people who are too (ornicating) lazy to get jobs to pay for food in an economy where employers are going begging for workers poor to afford all they need on their own. We have free kitchens for the mentally ill homeless. We have free breakfast and lunch programs in the public schools, with the biggest problem being a shortage of employees to cook it.

    Our food system provides an abundance of riches for the American people.

    Our system isn’t broken, so naturally the left want to fix it.

    So the admitted commie Booker admits:” He did point out that the government already has a significant impact on food production by way of agricultural legislation, the FDA and the USDA, and not always for the benefit of the American people, but more often for the benefit of food corporations.”

    So once again that which you admit the government controls (through legislation, the FDA and USDA is all fuked up)?! But let’s put them more in charge.

    “If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be a shortage of sand.”

    Milton Friedman

    That might explain why the Demofascist flu is still here. The government’s in charge.

    Fuk joe biden!
