George Soros buying up flooded farm land

Back on April 5, 2010 I did a post called  George Soros makes move on controlling food supply. I was following up on an excellent  post by Conservatives on Fire who included in his story that Soros was buying up Grain Elevators.

One thing COF discovered is the Trojan Horse that no one is discussing. That being the attempt at controlling of our food supply. Grain Elevator Operators for the most part can control what the farmer ends up getting paid. They are the middle man.  I suggest we stay alert on this one. It is the way many farms were lost during the depression. They would get loans from the Operators, have a bad crop one year, or the Operator claiming there were problems with his product. The farmers have no where else to take their product. They get paid what the Operator decides.

 I also had done an earlier post which had some controversy with an interesting debate in the comments section:  U.S. farm subsidies- a necessary evil? .  

Now from Trevor Loudon

1. File this one under “Now It All Makes Sense”. A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded out farmers in the Missouri River flood plain and bottoms notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to BUY THEIR LAND.

Intentionally flood massive acreage of highly productive farmground. Destroy people’s communities and homes. Catch them while they are desperate and afraid and then swoop in and buy the ground cheap. Those evil sons of bitches.

2. Speaking of evil sons of bitches, George Soros appears to be “investing” in farmground through the same puppet company that he used to get into the grain elevator and fertilizer business. The company is called Ospraie Capital Management and is buying up farmground in a joint venture with Teays River Investments as a partner. Here is that announcement:

Okay. Here’s the connection. This Ospraie outfit was a hedge fund specializing in commodities that was started and run by some cocky child who didn’t know how to trade bear markets and got his butt kicked into next week in the grain market of 2008. He also lost a fortune trying to trade RARE EARTH METALS. In fact, it was so bad that he had to shut his fund down because he had promised his investors that he would give them all of their investment money back if the fund lost more than 30% in one year. Whoopsie.

But it appears that Soros swooped in and saved the day because this Ospraie is the “co-investor” with Soros that bought the remnants of ConAgra’s trading operation and renamed it… Gavilon. In the industry, it is widely acknowledged that Ospraie IS Soros. That three-page article citation is here, copy and paste the URL into your address bar:

As you probably remember, Gavilon just recently bought both DeBruce Grain out of Kansas City and the biggest grain elevator company in the Pacific Northwest, thus making Soros (who is the money behind Gavilon through both his own Soros Fund Management AND his de facto control of Ospraie) the third-largest grain company in the U.S. with 280 million bushels of storage capacity, behind only Archer Daniels Midland (542 million bushels storage capacity) and Cargill (344 million bushels storage capacity). That citation is here:

Bottom line: Soros, through Ospraie, is buying up farmground. Please also note that the hotlink citation above is dated June 26, 2009. My contact says this has been going on for two years – and also remember what I told you about farmground prices inflating wildly, especially in Illinois. I have personally confirmed farmground in Illinois selling for $13,000 per acre within the last month, whereas that same kind of ground in Illinois was going for $5500 per acre the day Obama was inaugurated.

Spread the word. Trevor Loudon

    I thought you right-wingers were all for free markets. So why are you complaining about capitalist George Soros buying anything? He’s in it for profit…you know, that stuff you guys idolize when your side is getting it. What a joke this is.

    I have been following this story (Soros and Company) and the Food Safety overhaul. Both are indeed scary. With the Cargill’s and ADM’s of the world writing the legislation, one can be sure the small farmer, farmers markets and even home gardeners will be at risk.
    Should we discuss the airborne particulates issue? Small farms and ranches will either have to pave their farm roads or run water trucks up and down constantly to meet the new requirements.
    What particularly frightens me relative to Soros’ action in buying farmland and controlling silos is his enormous pull within the Obama administration, the U.N., the media and Center for American Progress. These ties, in addition to his wealth, virtually assure a free, unfettered hand. Spooky dude!
    Very informative site! Thanks.

      Thanks Phil for stopping by. Every Dictator needs to control the food supply and that is exactly what Soros and Obama are about. Make no mistake. It starts with Ronald McDonald and his elimination which is merely a metaphor.


      • Phil Johnson Says:

        No truer words have been spoken. And then there are ‘food deserts’ and…
        Maybe you should make it “God, Guns, Grapefruit, Gourds & Guts”? So what’s next?

        P.S. Come visit my blog sometime. See “In Celebration of Independence Day” – including a great quote from Coolidge, though you may already be familiar. Thanks!


  5. Gail C. - NC USA Says:

    With the Food Safety Modernization Act passed in Dec, 2010 expect to see the slow demise of the independent American farmer (and later the home gardener) as they are regulated out of business.

    With the World Trade Organization’s push for “Traceability” you have to be nuts to continue farming. “Traceability” translates to “pin the blame for any food illnesses on the farmer” not Con Agra.

    An example of what US farmers are now facing is the
    “…he-said-she-said battl brewing over the matter of a family facing up to $4 million in fines for selling bunnies out of their home in Nixa, Mo.

    Recently, John and Judy Dollarhite received a “Certified Mail Return Receipt” letter (dated April 19, 2011) from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. By reading the letter, they learned that the USDA was fining them $90,643 and that the fine must be paid by Monday. What prompted the fine? According to APHIS official, they had sold more than $500 worth of bunnies in a single calendar year.

    Early Thursday afternoon, I asked a USDA spokesperson in Washington, D.C., if the USDA was really going to slap these hefty fines on the Dollarhites. After all, they had grossed only $4,600 — and netted a profit of approximately $200 — from their rabbit sales in 2009….. ”

    If you do not think Home Gardens will eventually be targeted, remember the law the Dollarhites fell afoul o originally applied ONLY to interstate commerce until it was amended a few years ago.

    A lawyer explains how the original food safety bill targeted home gardens:

    This is the recent history of the carefully planned demise of the US farmer:

    Thanks for the link, my friend. But, something strange is going on. At the same time I received a ping-back for your link to CoF, I received a Ping-back from this site:

    The site is called http://WWW.BRIANBROWN.NET. Your complete word for word article appears there with no credit to you. It is posted as published by “webmaster”. The webmaster is Brian Brown. Are you one and the same or has this guy stolen your article?
