Start Praying for Rain

Published on July 12, 2012

Descrição: The ground is cracked at the edge of a corn field near England, Arkansas, where oppressive heat is affecting the crop.

The United States Department of Agriculture has declared natural disaster areas in more than 1,000 counties and 26 drought-stricken states, making it the largest natural disaster in America ever.

The declaration—which covers roughly half of the country—gives farmers and ranchers devastated by drought access to federal aid, including low-interest emergency loans. All over America the corn is dying. If drought conditions persist in the middle part of the country, wheat and soybeans will be next. Weeks of intense heat combined with extraordinarily dry conditions have brought many U.S. corn farmers to the brink of total disaster.

Despite early predictions of a record maize (corn) crop, estimates have plummeted after a string of record-high temperature days and dry conditions stretching across the farm states of the U.S. Midwest. “We need rain, and it doesn’t look like we’re going to get it,” says Iowa State University economist Dermot Hayes.

The most recent forecast—for parts of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana are under warnings for dry storms that could spark new fires, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said Wednesday. The National Weather Service issued “red flag warnings” for these areas for the third day in a row. That means there are likely to be storms in which the only thing that reaches the ground is the lightning, Myers said. Most or all of the rain evaporates on the way down, leaving the lightning to strike the hot, dry earth.

“We are really on a razor’s edge as far as moisture goes,” said Richard Oswald who farms in northwest Missouri. “We need rain pretty quick.” Farmers and agronomists throughout Missouri and north into top producer Iowa said soybeans were starting to show white spots and other signs of distress, while corn was wilting away in many fields.

The extreme heat and drought conditions are hitting the core of the U.S. Midwest just as the region’s big corn crop pollinates, the key yield-determining growth phase for corn. Drought conditions intensified the past week across the central United States, causing irrevocable damage to crops in Missouri, Indiana and even southern Illinois, where farmers are cutting stunted corn for silage, a low-grade feed for cattle.

Few people want to know that “The U.S. may be in for very hard times in the near future. Some economists are predicting financial collapse as catastrophic as the Great Depression. With a significant number of people now living in cities, far away from their food sources, one may be left to wonder if the degree of famine this time around may result in the starvation of the roughly 240 million Americans who are incapable of growing their own food.” Seems farfetched but these words were just published in the mainstream.

The worst Midwest drought in a quarter century is doing more damage to U.S. crops than previously expected with the government this past Wednesday slashing its estimate for what was supposed to be a record harvest. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the corn crop will average just 146 bushels an acre, down 20 bushels an acre from its June estimate and a much more dramatic drop than analysts had projected.

The report initially re-ignited a near-record rally in grain prices that will hit consumer grocery bills hard not only in North America but around the world. The severe scaling back of the harvest has sent corn and soybean prices up by more than a third over the past month and the situation is deteriorating day by day.

The USDA reduced its forecast for corn ending stocks—the amount of grain still in bins at the end of next summer before the new harvest—by 37% from last month, more than the 32% reduction expected.

“There are a lot of people thinking of chopping their corn up and feeding it to cows,” said University of Missouri Professor of Plant Sciences William Wiebold. “The attitude is not real good right now. For some farmers the crop is already gone. The longer we go without rain the more farmers will be in that situation.”

The condition of the U.S. corn crop has deteriorated quickly after record fast planting buoyed hopes of a bumper crop this fall in the world’s largest exporter of grains. Crop ratings have fallen to their lowest level in 24 years, with the U.S. Agriculture Department’s most recent estimate pegging the crop as just 40% good to excellent.

Descrição: http://standeyo.com/NEWS/12_Food_Water/12_Food_Water_pics/120709.drought.comp.jpg

“According to AccuWeather.com Agricultural Meteorologists, you can’t raise a corn crop with less than an inch of rain over six weeks combined with 100-degree and higher temperatures. However, these conditions have taken place in much of the southern Corn Belt through the week of July 4, 2012.”

Since 75% of grocery store products use corn as a key ingredient, expect food prices to skyrocket. Corn is also a staple in many processed and fast foods. Corn is in ethanol and is the main food source for chickens. In addition to this, corn (or maize) is in many things that aren’t obvious like adhesives, aluminum, aspirin, clothing starch, cosmetics, cough syrup, dry cell batteries, envelopes, fiberglass insulation, gelatin capsules, ink, insecticides, paint, penicillin, powders, rugs and carpets, stamps, talcum, toothpaste, wallpaper, and vitamins.

Food is hard to live without. We all tend to take it for granted that our local supermarket will continue to offer whatever we wish, in abundance at affordable prices. Yet living without adequate food is the growing prospect facing hundreds of millions, if not billions. The situation is crashing down on us like an avalanche because of the drought that is affecting almost 60% of Americans. Our present corn crop is wilting and day-by-day the yield estimates are collapsing, meaning a lot of people around the world are going to go hungry.

Between April 2010 and April 2011, the average world price of grain soared by 71%: not a very big deal for people in rich countries who spend less than 10% of their incomes on food, but a catastrophe for poor people who already spend more than half their money just to keep their families fed. The world has been just a misstep away from a food disaster and that misstep is knocking at our door.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) estimates that since 2004, world food prices on average have soared by an unprecedented 240% even as income for most people has declined. Predictably we have seen a rapid rise in starvation, hunger and malnutrition in poorer populations around the world. The FAO calculates that food-deficit countries will be forced to spend fully 30% more on importing food—with a world value of a staggering $1.3 trillion and that was before this year’s severe drought that seems to only get worse.

Mother Nature is turning really aggressive and is wiping out food production all over the globe with floods, drought, record heat, cold, hail, pestilence, declining soil nutrition and disappearing or polluted water resources. World food stocks are tightening and governments have to buy food for hundreds of millions with financial resources they no longer have.

Descrição: http://standeyo.com/NEWS/12_Food_Water/12_Food_Water_pics/120709.4Horsemen.Apocalypse.jpg

Remember Revelation’s 3rd and 4th Horsemen of the Apocalypse? It is the prophecy of famine and horrendous inflation so severe that people don’t have enough money to buy food. Are we getting what we deserve? We have made so many mistakes and continue to make them without regard to consequences. People are walking around oblivious to what is happening on so many fronts and are still happy to eat their Big Macs and go shopping at the mall pretending everything is going to be just fine. Few are preparing not only because of the lack of financial resources but because they see no reason or need for it.

Mike “Mish” Shedlock reacted quite strongly months ago to the idea that there will be no food at any price and I think he is going to have to eat his words. “The global agriculture supply situation has worsened and a failure to boost food production fast enough to meet demand may lead to shortages,” said investor Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers Holdings almost a year ago. “We’ve got to do something or we’re going to have no food at any price at times in the next few years,” Rogers said in a Bloomberg Television interview with Rishaad Salamat in Singapore.

Special Note—my recommendations for survival food have always included superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, honey, wheatgrass and barley juice and of course my favorite superfood formula called Rejuvenate because it includes all of the necessary elements for our survival and tastes great mixed with any fruit or vegetable juice and even water. The most intelligent thing you can do is to stock up on whatever you can while you can.

    It is the sun, the CMEs, solar flares and the massive energies coming from suns beyond suns beyond suns. Try James Guillard web site. Put your candle in the candlestick for the whole household to see (bible). It means by increasing our vibrations through positive thoughts and emotions,we affect all that is. Stephen Hawkins says human consciousness affects the evolution of the cosmos. You choose heaven or hell. Look at Bruce Lipton. He lives in heaven.It is understanding the force field which includes human consciousness and how this precedes matter.
    BTW I talked to the guys planting the corn. It is not genetically modified. Glad I was wrong.

    “Start praying for rain”

    “When a man (or nation) turns his heart away from keeping the Law, even his prayer is an abombination” (Proverbs 28:9)

    • Shelley

      Today….day of the end of dooms day reporters is now, you will live in the world you create with your thoughts and words.
      Learn to create a new heaven and earth with many who are on board, the old is diminishing exponentially, time to choose…. live in the old and deteriorate or create the new and live abundantly !!

  • Mieke

    It feels to me like a ‘punishment’ from the universe for al the gentech/manipulated seed that companies like Monsanto (with help of the US government) wants us to plant all over the world. So all the harvests fail due to drought. It’s the wrong way. Now, after the US, Monsanto is attacking Europe…

    • Shelley

      I agree with Mieke….not that this is punishment from the universe but is the elemental natures that are ridding us of the toxins and poison of these crops and perhaps destroying Monsanto financially. I do have compassion for these farmers and perhaps through this loss they will choose non GMO seeds next time they plant.

  • Vladimir

    By the way, I pray for the farmers in America. We are all connected.

  • mar

    I think this is the end result of all the chemtrailing going on this year. It was especially aggressive this year. Almost everyday for months

  • Tim Webb

    “And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron. The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed”.
    Deuteronomy.
    There are uncountable multitudes on earth who think that there is no relationship between what we do and say and what happens to us. The simple truth that God is not mocked has been relegated to the realms of fairytale. Big mistake.
    The so-called food that is withering is GM poison. Huge harvests of this filth would have gone forth to destroy all those who are forced to eat it. As it kills, it almost certainly produces Morgellon’s Disease; every person with this allegedly “delusional parasitosis” is shown to be positive for agrobacterium tumifaciens, the soil bacterium used to genetically transform corn and wheat. The genes thus inserted are not stable; they rearrange and probably are responsible for producing the patriotic red white and blue polythene fibres which emerge from sufferers’ skin, causing unendurable itching and frequent suicide.
    Those rejecting the certainty of divine retribution would be well advised to visit the website “The Other Bible Code”, where their atheistic foundations will be shaken to the point of destruction and revealed to be built upon the sand which we were clearly warned about by our great Creator, Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

  • The same is happening in Iceland..We have had almost no rain last 2 months..unusually dry and also the heat have been +20 on Celsius day after day..First time since 1998 when I moved to my house the flower Lupine has dried to death and I have cliff behind my house who have never before got totally dry..always sipping water rom it cracks and ice in the wintertime..it was even a veld there and in old times people did pump up water from it I did ind out few years back..I think something BIG is happening under the surface of mother earth..new cracks opening and older changing and it would be strange if this will not happen since the earth is shaking all days not so big quakes..but all the time moving..trembling..I think the earth is expanding..like giving birth to some new…but this is a hard delivery she is having…

  • peggy

    i don’t think this has anything to do with mother nature.

    it is agenda 21.

  • w.b.

    Corn, Soybeans and wheat are dying? …..and the concern is?

  • Dr. Sircus –

    Why aren’t governments around the world spraying/seeding the clouds for rain instead of spraying chemtrails with the deadly chemicals Aluminum, Barium, Strontium and other poisons? These chemicals absorb moisture from the earth, are killing trees and are changing the ph of the soil so vegetables and plants are not growing into healthy specimans – and now we have a dry, hot climate! How convenient! CLIMATEGATE!

    Remember Secretary of Defense Cohen under Clinton when he gave a speech outlining how the government can control the weather? Look on the internet for Government Control of the Weather. It’s there and it’s real.

    Also, why isn’t the US government spraying/seeding the clouds for rain? They did it constantly during the years of the Viet Nam war, to drown out the Viet Cong from their underground tunnels. The constant seedings delivered monsoon rains for long periods of time during the war. Remember the “real news” clips on TV that showed our soldiers constantly wearing wet clothes which caused horrible problems for them during those rains.

    So the US government can spray/seed clouds for rain but we are living in a world dominated by crop-killing droughts and continuous forest fires devastating and destroying thousands of acres of forests, lands and homes.

    And we can put a man on the moon – HAH!

    WHY ISN’T THE GOVERNMENT SEEDING THE CLOUDS NOW INSTEAD OF SPRAYING POISONOUS CHEMTRAILS??? P O P U L A T I O N C O N T R O L !!!!

    Why could the Chinese government control the weather for the Olympic games held in China a few years ago but the US government can’t seed the clouds today?

    WE DO NOT HAVE A GOVERNMENT!!! There’s nobody taking care of us, folks. Realize it and start preparing!

      This is what I found at:
      http://www.agriculturedefensecoalition.org/content/colorado-issues

      WEATHER MODIFICATION IN COLORADO & SURROUNDING STATES

      Ranching & Crop Production is being impacted by current and ongoing weather modication programs in Colorado and other states. Below you will find NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration), listings of these programs between 2008 and 2010. (There are ongoing in 2011 and these listings are available from the NOAA office in Colorado upon request.)

      When you have rain and snow enhancements in one area it can lead to droughts in other areas which are deprived of normal snow or rainfall due to these programs. The local weathermen are not reporting these weather modification programs in their daily weather reports. The weather being reported may not be normal for your region due to these current and ongoing programs.

      These programs may lead to water shortages and decline in crop production. Cattle, horses, and wild amimals may be subjected to enhanced snowfall or rainfall requiring the purchase of extra feed (military food drops for animals that can’t be reached any other way), for starvation prevention. The growing season for all types of crops included cattle feed may be negatively impacted by these weather modification programs causing food and feed shortages and increased prices.

      It should be noted that anyone may modify your weather without your knowledge, oversight or consent at this time. This means that private indivduals, corporations, cities, states, counties, and the federal government can conduct these experiments at any time using any method simply by hiring a weather modification company.

    Dr Mark,

    This is only a partial picture of the onset of calamity. Other staple crops are suffering from the crazy weather eg wheat. The scenario is just right for Monsanto and other genetic engineers to step in with their improved varieties……a created crisis it is! Add Radiation, earthquakes, lightening, tornados, unemployment, slowdown in shipping, inflation etc, and we can see that the endtimes script is unfolding.

    Everything is in place total chaos and destruction! It seems that life on the surface will be extinguished while the Elites live underground. The Prophecies of Mitar Tarabich seems to be the only genuine item out there!

  • We also need to take a good look at the work of Jeffery Smith. http://www.seedsofdeception.com

      I managed to read part of this book today. The pictures from America are sobering. Today it is cool and raining in Europe. I cycle around and see sky high maize everywhere without a weed in sight. I read that in this country there is no GMO free zone. It is EU which is supposed to have banned GMO. Here it is a hub of biotech companies. The people in the village just drive the tractors and plant the seeds. It is the pyramid. Scientists, farm workers, medical doctors just do their jobs, with no connecting of the dots.It is also necessary to consider the basis of reality in quantum physics. This world is a hologram. It is not real. If you look at Dolores Cannon, there will be two worlds. If you are aligned with the new world by high vibration, you will have another experience from those who are in fear. I read, I observe but I live in the moment. I refuse to go into fear. The emotion of fear.I grow vegetables, melons and live a simple life. I make decisions moment by moment. I see the GMO maize. I see the organic broccoli growing splendidly just nearby. I see the photos from America. It is really sobering.It is necessary to be careful about the words we use not to lower the frequency. It is all about frequency and energy. Raise the vibrations.
