Default SWAT Team Conducts Food Raid in Rural Ohio

SWAT Team Conducts Food Raid in Rural Ohio
December 6th, 2008

Via: Crossroad:

On Monday, December 1, a SWAT team with semi-automatic rifles entered the private home of the Stowers family in LaGrange, Ohio, herded the family onto the couches in the living room, and kept guns trained on parents, children, infants and toddlers, from approximately 11 AM to 8 PM. The team was aggressive and belligerent. The children were quite traumatized. At some point, the “bad cop” SWAT team was relieved by another team, a “good cop” team that tried to befriend the family. The Stowers family has run a very large, well-known food cooperative called Manna Storehouse on the western side of the greater Cleveland area for many years.



Presumably Manna Storehouse might eventually be charged with running a retail establishment without a license. Why then the Gestapo-type interrogation for a 3rd degree misdemeanor charge? This incident has raised the ominous specter of a restrictive new era in State regulation and enforcement over the nation’s private food supply.

Oh yes.

They had alot of food stored and the government wanted knowledge of what, how much and to who these people were supplying their food to.

Be watchful, because if they want to be nasty the Gov. can say 'you aided and abbetted a criminal / terrorist' and then its federal crime charges time and these poor folks will do huge jail time.

(Think it won't happen? Its how they roll, its why I said hide your food in my thread.

Think it cannot happen? look at why these people were raided. They ran a wholly GM free co-operative.

Why was it cracked down on? because it gave people the chance to store large amounts of food at low prices and what is good clean food.

Store your food, but hide it wisely.

This reminded me of the melamine in the food supply thread -
http://www.projectavalon.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=6423
So even if we want to eat wholesome food, we soon won't be allowed to.

This is from a news/opinion report I get:

From: "Nance ~" <planetnews8@gmail.com>

~SPECIAL ALERT TO EVERYONE THAT EATS ~

Swat Team Conducts "Food Raid" in Rural Ohio.

The USDA just released their plans to put a law into action that will put
all small farmers out of business. Animals for the sale of meat or milk will
only be allowed in commercial farms. December 3, 2008

If you read nothing else today please make it this article
http://www.rwefree.com/swat.htm

We have been ranting and raving for years about the abuses of the USDA and
the Federal Government against small farmers and people who would actually
like to eat real healthy foods without all of the additives and commercially
inflicted hormones and growth additives. Every piece of processed food you
put into your family's body is allowed to be altered by the Government to
make it more profitable for the large corporations.
Most of these additives are horribly wrong for the human consumer. They
induce more production in the animals, more fat, more steroids, more
antibiotics and less actual nutrition. We are being slowly murdered and if
not dying our brains are being affected by these additives. Our children are
suffering from diseases that were unknown 30 years ago.

Their intelligence is being reduced! Allergies , ADD, ADHD, and on and on.
We are allowing the government to make Zombies out of us.

With the lack of healthy foods and the TV constantly keeping us
Entertained so we don't think about the very important things we should be
thinking about we are slowly slinking into oblivion. A vast pit we will not
be able to dig out of.

Just take a pill you will be ok?

Keep the Drug industry healthy!

Watch TV for only a few minutes and you will see dozens of ads for all kinds
of cures (not cures but only medications which will alleviate the symptoms
of illnesses) mostly with side effects which are worse than the actual
illness or disability.

Did you ever wonder why there are so many ads for Viagra? Could it be that
the males in our world now are being sterilized and impotent on purpose? If
a persons body has to have help to have Normal Sex then something is
definitely wrong. From all of the ads you would think that sex is the main
reason to live? When did it become the most important factor in a
relationship?

I can guarantee you that the small farmer, organic farmer and gardener that
raises their own food does not have this problem. You won't see any Viagra
on their night stand. Their only problem would be they are bone tired from
actually working all day. They also don't need sleep aids to fall asleep at
night.

Keep on feeding your babies formula, it is good for them and soooooooo easy.
It also is made of mostly SOY which was prescribed for me during Menapause
to help my body make more estrogen? Now if it does that for my body why
wouldn't it do the same in children? Males with low testerone means a
society that is docile and easily controlled. Ever notice that it is the
women who are actually getting out and fighting more so than the men now? (I
am not talking about the farmers who are not consuming vast amounts of Soy
every day. Those men seem to have no problems being a male.) I am not
putting all the blame on Soy but it could be a part of the problem. What
ever happened to mothers' milk? goats milk? Even the old baby formula your
Grandmother made on the stove out of evaporated milk, water and a little
plain Karo syrup?

How many effeminate Farmers have you seen?

Google NAIS and join some of the many groups that are fighting for your food
safety and their survival against the huge corporate organizations which are
taking over the control of all of the food industry. It could mean your very
life and certainly has the future of your family's health at stake.

Most of the diseases that afflict us today can be cured by simply eating the
right foods, stopping the input of chemicals into our bodies, and you will
find that the food grown in your back yard or on a small farm tastes all
together different from the canned variety out of the grocery stores. You
may just develop a taste for real food. Food that will nourish your body not
tear it down.

Find someone with a well and drink their water, people on wells will share
it doesn't cost them a monthly bill to have chemicals put into their water
to make it safe to drink? No Flouride, No clorox, but real minerals we all
need every day in a form we can digest.

Join the small farmers and ranchers, refuse to eat the products from the
huge feed lots and commercially poisoned farms.

And as always start storing up supplies for your family. The time will come
and soon I am afraid that Food will be the weapon we will be totally
controlled with.

He who controls the food supply has the power! {end of quote}

All of the above is common sense, couldn't agree more with it. Many will not be in a position to take advantage of the advice however.

Default Caching supplies

Caching supplies is a time honored practice.

Laura Ingalls Wilder talks about how her Momma kept a small supply of food in the house for their regular use and for the Indians to steal when they came through. Then her momma would go to the secret cache to replace what had been stolen.

An article from Alpha Rubicon talks about caching techniques. One must be mindful of moisture least
metal cans, weapons or ammunition be turned to piles
of rust. Techniques such as storing weapons well greased
with desiccant in a sealed PVC pipe or sealing cans in wax may help. Then burying metal objects underneath a metal scrap heap will spoil the enthusiasm of
most metal detector operators to dig.

http://www.alpharubicon.com/prepinfo/medlongcache.htm

Here is a narrative by the people who wrote the book
on stealthy storage of supplies. The Special Forces Caching Techniques Field Manual. Just one caveat when
using these techniques. Remember where you hid them.

Default Re: SWAT Team Conducts Food Raid in Rural Ohio

There are now 2 threads on this, and I posted this reply in another thread...

This was posted on another site:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I just got off the phone with the Captain in charge of the SWAT team for Lorain, Ohio Sheriff's office. This incident happened several days ago and there was no, repeat **no** SWAT team present. There was no family terrorized at gunpoint for hours.

There were four regular road deputies accompanying a representative of the Ohio Department of Agriculture in the execution fo a search warrant. Having law enforcement personnel present is routine and the warrant was executed without incident.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So, there may well be more than meets the eye, we'll have to see as the story unfolds. The co-op may have been actually selling without a license, or selling food as organic that wasn't, or any number of things. Who knows? For the judge to issue the warrant, there had to be probable cause of something.

Now, I'm the first to tell you that our government is not blameless in many ways, but it would not surprise me to find that there was more to this story than meets the eye. If the government was doing a crackdown on food co-ops in general, we would have heard of more than one "raid" that day - that's the way they operate.
