Dairy farmers in Wisconsin have joined a man and his wife who are appealing a judge's ruling that they don't have a fundamental right to own a dairy cow or drink the unprocessed milk from their own cows.
Farmers Mark and Petra Zinniker wished to sell raw milk obtained from their cows through their new farm store. But a judgment in August from Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge Patrick Fiedler ruled against them in what one attorney characterized as a "bizarre judicial leap."
In response, shareholders joined the Zinnikers and retained public-interest lawyers from the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) who had filed a motion for Judge Fiedler to clarify his court decision.
What shocked many Wisconsin residents -- and a growing number of Americans across the nation -- is the fact that Judge Fiedler's ruling denies the fundamental rights to food and farming. For example, he ruled that the plaintiffs -- the Zinnikers -- don't have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd, in spite of their legally purchasing the farm animals.
The judge also ruled that the Zinnikers -- and Americans in general -- don't have a fundamental right to drink the milk from their cow, and they do not have a right to choose, produce and consume foods and liquids.
Fiedler's bizarre, unreasonable and harsh court ruling on the rights
of farmers is likely to have a far greater effect, if it is allowed
to stand," said political strategist and attorney Mike Baker.
"Basically, that Wisconsin jurist is legislating from the bench based on his own personal interpretation of the U.S. Constitution's commerce clause," Baker said. He added that this case may be part of a larger attempt by government officials to dictate what Americans can and cannot consume.
"The Nanny State is becoming more and more intrusive as politicians and black-robed lawyers wish to decide what we can eat, how much we are allowed to eat, and when we're allowed to eat," Baker noted.
the massive Obamacare bill passed in 2010 giving the government control
of one-sixth (1/6) of the U.S economy, they immediately began the pattern
of creating a crisis, selling their remedy to the crisis and passing
legislation that doesn't alleviate the crisis, but gives lawmakers and
the President more power. That new crisis is obesity, according to several
"First, we had the First Lady Michelle Obama speaking frequently about childhood obesity, adult obesity, American obesity. The subtext of her message is that Americans are overfed, fat slobs who needed to be prodded away from the refrigerator," said Baker.
Then, according to the congressional record, after more than a year of consideration, the U.S. Senate passed the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act by a vote of 73-25. That meant not only did the Senate Democrats pass the bill but at least 20 Republicans consented to yet another government takeover.
The bill passed in the House, then it was affirmed by the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee in November 2009. President Barack Obama was more than happy to sign the bill into law since it have his minions at the FDA more power which increased the power of the Obama White House, noted Thomas Spence, a food and beverage industry specialist, who served as a food and nutrition expert at the Department of Justice during the Vietnam War.
"The "Act" gives even greater authority to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowing the agency to hire additional bureaucrats to conduct more frequent inspections at food processing plants and assigns more governmental authority in recalling food," Spence said.
The "Act" also requires food processing companies to register with the FDA in order to detail their safety plans, and it allows the FDA to create more food safety regulations. Moreover, it establishes stricter standards on food safety. An intended or unintended consequence is the rise in food prices as a result of increased production costs necessary to comply with FDA regulations.
The Centers for Disease Control reports that tens of millions of Americans are made ill by food-borne illnesses, resulting in thousands of deaths every year. In an effort to prevent future outbreaks of such illnesses, the bill requires farmers and food processors to declare to the Food and Drug Administration how they are preparing the foods to keep them safe at various stages of production, the magazine The New American reported.
However, as noted by The New American, "[T]he very culprit responsible for the food-borne illnesses is the same one being assigned more power by the food safety bill: the FDA.
The FDA “has been the facilitator for hundreds of lethal and deadly pharmaceuticals allowed into the markets that cause physical damage and even death in thousands of cases.”
Despite the massive increase in government influence the bill allows, it managed to garner bipartisan support in Congress, and had the backing of President Obama as well. The bill had 20 co-sponsors, eight of whom were Republicans. The legislation also had the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, though the group did caution that the bill provides too much discretion to federal regulators, according to Raven Clabough at the New American.
The food safety bill is criticized as being unconstitutional. Raven Clabough asserts that "the true focus of the bill, despite lawmakers’ assertions, is to eradicate family and independent producers, to corner the agricultural markets, reducing competition, to force all food products produced in the US into exports markets, and to criminalize land and livestock ownership through the use of predatory licensing and regulation.”
Other conservatives who believe in constitutional government have said that The Food Safety Modernization Act, S. 510, represents a massive expansion of government regulation of the food industry, even though there is no authorization in the Constitution for this.
"My right to produce, distribute, and consume the foods of my choice is part of my right to life and liberty under the Constitution," said Clabough.
American Food Plan Linked to Globalism
Far too many conservatives are failing to pay attention to the rise of global socialism at the hands of the United Nations through its Agenda 21. It is easy to overlook world governance schemes when Americans are inundated with information regarding local and national events.
Also, the problem with the media coverage of this United Nations labyrinth known as Agenda 21 is that it was created in 1992 and implemented in incremental actions by the U.N. and its supporters in the U.S., E.U., and other countries whose populations are eager to benefit from the work of others especially those enjoying success in the United States.
"The overarching goal of Agenda 21 is to establish international norms of personal behavior that are dictated by a group of the world’s so-called ‘enlightened elite’ who believe they know best how people ought to live therefore they should be allowed to tell the how they should live," said GOP official Nathan Tabor of North Carolina.
“But make no mistake, even though Congress never approved the implementation of Agenda 21 programs in education, economics, the environment and other areas. Presidents as far back as George H.W. Bush have signed Executive Orders allowing implementation of Agenda 21's programs,” said Tabor, the author of the bestseller The Beast on the East River, an expose of United Nations corruption and evil.
In fact, the U.N. has ignored the federal government and through its Agenda 21 International Council of Local Environmental Initiative and made deals with local governments numbering upwards of 600 cities, towns and villages.
To understand how serious the left is about United Nations rule, look at some of the proponents of Agenda 21: billionaire George Soros has provided millions of dollars to ICLEI. Former Barack Obama czar Van Jones' Green for All and the Tides Foundations' Apollo Alliance are also reportedly ICLEI contributors, according to a GOP and Tea Party leader.
“The truth is, Agenda 21 promotes European socialism that by its nature will infringe upon our freedoms and liberties. Most of its vague, lofty sounding phrases cause the average person's eyes to glaze over, making it easier to sneak into our communities,” warns Tabor, who has served as chairman of the Forsyth County Republican Party in North Carolina and is an activist within the Tea Party Movement.
"Besides its radical environmental agenda, the U.N. wishes to change consumption patterns, including food consumption, ownership of property and automobile ownership, while successfully promoting social justice," said Tabor.
Starve a People, Feed the World
may have seemed to be outrageous to most Americans regarding their own
government now appears to be more recognized as fact. For example, there
are growing suspicions that the United States government is seeking
to control the American population through bogus food safety programs
with the ultimate goal of deliberate starvation.
Before Glenn Beck was booted from Fox News Channel -- where he had monumental audience ratings -- he alleged that the government's interest in food safety and fighting obesity "is about control and, in the end, starvation,” Beck said.
Beck's warning was the result of a Senate bill (S.510) that would give the FDA additional authority to address so-called food safety. The bill had received bipartisan support in response to the reported cases of food recalls the past year (peanut butter, spinach, cookie dough, etc.) due to pathogens like E.coli and salmonella that have sickened thousands of Americans and led to dozens of deaths.
And Glenn Beck isn't the only one sounding the alarm: Political commentator Wayne Allyn Root believed that Obama and the progressives are intentionally overwhelming the system.
"BaracK Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within," said Root.
Barack Obama was Root's college classmate at Columbia University (Class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues.
"Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it," said Root.
He points to Obamacare to make his point: The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions of dollars to the national debt, Root asserts. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a near depression?
Cap and trade, like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors.
Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around," said Root.
But with all these theories regarding "food control" the motive is what should disturb any American, whether they are business owners or laborers: The goal of creating equality on planet Earth.
After decades and trillions of dollars to help poor nations -- especially in Africa and Latin America -- progressives have finally realized that throwing money at a problem will never solve that problem. No matter what progressives attempted, they failed to bring these impoverished countries' citizens up to the standard of living in the United States.
In their obsession with creating their "even playing field" the progressives have decided that if they couldn't raise the standard of living within the "poor" nations, then in order to achieve "social justice, they must drag the majority of Americans down to the standard of living endured by citizens of Third-World nations, said Mike Baker, attorney and conservative strategist.

"Of course, the Obamas, Clintons, Gores and other rich progressives will continue to enjoy their wealth while Americans stand in breadlines, but they will feel justified that U.S. citizens are just as poverty-stricken as the folks living in war-torn Africa," said Baker.
"When the government controls the food and housing and health care, they control the people. Get out of line and you'll be thrown into the streets to starve. And don't think they wouldn't do it," Baker pointed out.
"I've heard it said by his defenders that President Obama loves America. I would say that while Obama may love America, he hates Americans."
