Breaking news: Multi-agency armed raid hits Rawesome Foods, Healthy Family Farms for selling raw milk and cheese

Rawesome Foods, a private buying club offering wholesome, natural raw milk and raw cheese products (among other wholesome foods) is founded by James Stewart, a pioneer in bringing wholesome raw foods directly to consumers through a buying club. James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched.

Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store -- which is used to purchase product for selling there -- agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.

James was handcuffed, wasneverread his rights and was stuffed into anunmarkedcar. While agents said they would leave behind a warrant, no one has yet had any opportunity to even see if such a warrant exists or if it is a complete warrant.

If one issue can bring two very different groups: Libertarian Republicans and Democrats to fight growing tyranny, it would be food sovereignty.  What can be done to make headway against Monsanto and the gang and the politicians and bureaucratic/lobbyist revolving door ?

hmm, maybe local is best?

 

 

WASHINGTON (AP)- Meat giant Cargill is recalling 36 million pounds of turkey after a government hunt for the source of a salmonella outbreak that has killed one person in California and sickened dozens more.

Maybe someday we will get back to knowing where our food comes from and who grows it.

Yikes is right

Robie, I didn't know about this when I posted ... I just got the info late last night myself. Kept me from dragging myself out of bed at 4 a.m to try to attend the protest on their behalf in L.A.

It's quite a shock because apparently Sharon Palmer and the farm were interviewed for the new documentary Farmageddon. It seems crazy to think the filmmakers would not have noticed anything suspicious when they were filming.

Nonetheless, it appears the arrests weren't even about this fraud - it was for selling raw milk and cheese. And that is still something to protest against. Those who aren't familiar with the benefits of raw milk and the detriments of pasteurized can learn more here:

Unfortunately this fraud case could hurt the cause for raw milk that much more ... look at the trump card the FDA just got ... "unless you buy from big factory farms you could be deceived just like they were in L.A.!" Considering how frequently fear is used to give TPTB the upper hand, one could almost imagine this to all be a setup ... except it seems awfully hard to set up something like this, and the person who launched the investigation above was actually one of the owners of the co-op.

The problem with making

The problem with making anything illegal, from raw milk to beer, is that it will then attract criminals.  Simply put, they are the ones willing to take the risk.  This will only stop when individuals en masse simply start ignoring the nonsensical laws.  Otherwise, it's just us vs. them, and "they" have the money and power to do whatever they like.

One of the concepts in the Art of War is that you only fight on YOUR terms, when and where you want.  Another is that you only attack the enemy where he is weak and you are strong.  All TPTB can do is make symbolic arrests in an attempt to dissuade people from exercising their God-given rights, so going to court or trying to change the situation via the legal system is futile, that is where the enemy is strong.  They are weak on the street, where life actually happens, because they are not omnipresent.

Refuse to live in fear.

curiouser and curiouser

 Apparently there is more to this story and it seems there are some personal vendetta things going on. Sad that this drama has to get mixed in to the very real drama of fighting for the right to choose local food by a farmer you know and trust.
