Sriracha - Follow Up

Thu, Apr 17, 2014 - 2:22am

I only have time for a quick one. This is a follow up to my earlier report that meddling local government workers tried to shut down one of my beloved condiment makers, Huy Fong foods, which manufactures Sriracha hot sauce.

The story is simple: after citizen complaints of strong odors, local govt thugs filed a court action seeking an immediate shut down of the business. The judge refused the immediate, emergency order, but instead some interim orders and set the matter for a trial later this year.

The story now gets better. Seems that other more business friendly states took notice, and descended upon the business owner, soliciting him to move the business to their states. Get this: even some LOCAL cities tried to get the business to move to another city nearby! Remarkable.

The story is here:

So this is what it has come to. Instead of encouraging NEW business development through sensible, business friendly laws and tax policies, government officials try to lure EXISTING businesses away from their current locales. Encouraging new business growth is a revenue builder no matter how one looks at it, but luring a business away to a new place is a job killer for the loser. Politicians are just so shallow, petty, and dumb, that nothing surprises me any more.

I hope that Huy Fong moves and takes all its jobs and tax revenue with it. God bless you, Texas, keep it up. I'll be moving there in a few years . . .

I Think we are about.....

to witness an exodus......from the blogosphere......& as well the country....of some key players. The day of reckoning draws very near. Those that truly understand are putting on their lifejackets, and boarding the lifeboats. Farewell USS Titanic...... the music you hear is the Banking directed MSM soothing those on deck that the iceberg merely scratched the hull...and the ship would now actually be more seaworthy, and much safer.... those remaining on board have no idea there are nowhere near enough lifeboats(Gold & Silver)for all. Just as with the accelerating exodus of the Dollar/Bond.....the exodus from the "prison" begins........the lockdown coming. Pull back the door.....and view a very dangerous " New World".

We're there. gov goons outright in the open in your face with America's individual freedoms. The goon platoon wants it all so be ready. It's always good to make certain there's cash on hand during Christian Holiday's such as EASTER. The EEE so enjoy putting down Christians and taking the wind out of their spiritual sails on such sacred occasions. It matters not when as we know there's a when coming and any extended bankstering holiday won't be fun for citizens caught with pants down after a false flag event. The bankstering holiday comes 1st before the devaluing of the dollar. Anyone with ready cash on hand will have the upper hand in getting those few things which seem prudent to exchange for devaluing frns for stuff of substance. Those who wait will stand in line for cash and at devalued buying power to buy stuff for survival, going hyper inflating to the moon. Deluge of dollars chasing after what is needed. You don't like keeping cash on hand because thieves break in and steal? Just wait and see what will be stolen from we the people by corrupted gov goons in bed with banksters. It isn't within arms reach you don't own it, so be wise going into the last half of this month.

As George Ure points out at Urbansurvival

As you’ll see in the Coping section this morning, there is plenty of bad stuff that has happened on April 19th and 20th, so we look at this weekend with a great deal of suspicion.

We preppers are so effected with frenzied minds, as the world would point fingers at our prepping, we will be the last standing in the aftermath. All here know by now the US has a 1 inch flood wall built of straw & sticks to hold back a 100 foot tsunami of economic; financial catastrophy having built over many decades. Don't have exact details but ready or not!

While on the topic of food

This was predicted several years ago, it has come to fruition. Fresh meat is a staple on most American's dinner tables, where do we go next in the age of Obummer's America?

Russia has a secret weapon against the West, and it’s not oil, gas or nukes

By Jason Karaian @jkaraian April 15, 2014

"Europeans are rightly worried about the reliability of Russian energy supplies, while the US has begun to throw its weight around as a potential swing producer in the oil markets. But the initial skirmishes in the economic war between Russia and the West won’t be fought over pipelines.

The US has already leveraged its financial-sector might to hobble a Russian bank and disrupt the country’s payment systems, while European countries have frozen Russian defense contracts. Russia’s control of an obscure but important precious metal gives it a means to retaliate; the price of palladium is up 13% in the spot market so far this year, with futures suggesting further gains ahead. It may sound strange, but a dispute over territory in Ukraine might push up prices in European car showrooms and American dental clinics. "

Nice chart....

Was Ruppert's death really suicide?

Gordon Duff has doubts:

"We were told that Michael Ruppert, the former Los Angeles police detective that confronted CIA Director John Deutch in 1996, forcing his resignation based on supported allegations of narcotics trafficking, died, said to be a suicide.

This was the last time any law enforcement officer in the US stood up to CIA drug dealing as Ruppert spent much of the rest of his life “on the run.”

Some time ago, Ruppert had phoned me, telling me that if I ever heard he had committed suicide, it would not be true. At one point, after being poisoned, Ruppert fled to Venezuela and lived under the protection of President Chavez.

The story of Ruppert’s life is an example of what happens to anyone that speaks up. Ruppert was among the first to expose the “SSG.”


As I recall, the MSM went out of their way to explain how this was clearly a well-planned and executed suicide--no doubt about it. They had 1200 suicide notes (note: a slight exaggeration) some written 3 years ago (or so?) I wonder what Ruppert was planning to reveal next?

I was just wondering about this the other day, CaL. Thanks for the follow up.
