Dairy farmers are being forced to dump thousands of gallons of milk down the drain due to the economic slowdown resulting from coronavirus fears.
The dairy industries of the United States and Canada are suffering mightily because of the coronavirus panic. Even as individuals are desperate to buy essential goods and stock up for a crisis, there is far too much supply for the moribund consumer markets.
John Walker of Walker Dairy Inc. in Ontario said that he has been jettisoning his milk supply since last week due to the economic crunch.
“There is just nowhere for it to go,” Walker said to CTV News London on Sunday. “Schools, restaurants, and even Tim Hortons’ amount of cream is down. Those are all things that have slowed down demand for our product right now.”
“The dramatic changes in demand and the related challenges being felt throughout the supply chain have resulted in the need for the disposal of some raw milk, which is extremely unfortunate and difficult,” the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) said in a statement released last week.
Nikki Boxler, who owns and operates the Boxler Dairy in Varysburg, New York, says that her small, family-owned dairy farm is in shambles.
“Watching your hard work literally go down the drain is heart-wrenching. The wasted product represents our livelihood and the massive amount of hard work that takes place year-round to produce it,” she said Sunday in a Facebook post.
Boxler believes that the dairy industry is suffering due to milk’s perishable nature. This is causing the industry to be “hit harder and earlier than other agricultural commodities” by her estimation.
One Wisconsin farmer was forced to dispose of an incredible 56,000 pounds of milk, citing restaurant closures as being particularly devastating to his farm.
“It’s really depressing,” said Mark Mueller, owner of Mueller Dairy Farm. “It’s like all your hard work just running down the drain.”
Wisconsin dairy farmers are asking for a bailout from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in order to stay afloat. They hope to receive the assistance through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or CARES Act until normalcy can be returned, if that is even possible at this point.
While alarmists like Dr. Fauci call for an open-ended shutdown of society to fight coronavirus, millions of lives are being destroyed due to the economic damage caused by the government overreach. The dairy industry is the canary in the coalmine, and the rest of the market is likely to follow.
FLASHBACK: Before the COVID-19 Scamdemic, China and Wall Street Bankers Pined for ‘Cashless Society’
This is no conspiracy theory.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, a peculiar war on cash has emerged, including news of a coin shortage that never quite made sense, which has some individuals thinking that the crisis is being exploited to usher in the “cashless society.”
The fake news media on cue has jumped into action to call anyone who expresses this notion a “conspiracy theorist.”
“Coins aren’t being circulated because businesses are closed and sales are down during the pandemic. And the government isn’t pushing the U.S. into a cashless society, either,” the Associated Press declared.
“We rate the claim that a “cashless” society would have zero cash, meaning money would be fully digital, fully traceable and fully controlled PARTLY FALSE as some of the claim was not supported by our research,” the USA Today wrote in their supposed fact check about the cashless society.
However, before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Wall Street banking elites openly bragged about how they pined for a cashless society.
“We want a cashless society,” said Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan last year at Fortune’s Brainstorm Finance conference, explaining that the financial system is “already digitized” and the cashless society is right around the corner.
“The business has moved digitally and it will continue to move that way. It’s just figuring out how to add the value,” he added.
JP Morgan also released a white paper celebrating how Europe is rapidly going cashless, calling the trend a natural progression from paper-based monetary units.
“PayPal and Apple’s publicly reported growth rates suggest that both could potentially be gaining consumer preference and merchant adoption. Digital Wallets directly address consumer security and help push toward a true cashless society,” said Brian Gaynor, Executive Director, Head of Product and Strategy Solutions at J.P. Morgan Merchant Services in Europe.
“For example, PayPal holds my card data centrally and keeps me from having to trust multiple e-commerce sites or apps with my full primary account number. Apple Pay does the same,” he added.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that the red menace is leading the way toward a cashless society. China has led the way on smart cities, social credit scores, weaponizing search engines to be tracking devices, and various devious technological innovations meant to crush the spirit of its citizenry.
China’s aggressive moves toward cashlessness are already causing problems for tourists and native citizens alike with society punishing those who resist the transition, as the Wall Street Journal has explained:
Travelers have had more luck on Alipay, which introduced a seven-step process last week that requires visitors to submit passport and visa information to Alipay, before loading money using an overseas card onto a prepaid card.
In a bathroom near the Great Wall recently, Catherine De Witte, a Belgian marketing consultant, was getting frustrated. She waved her hands in front of a high-tech toilet-paper dispenser, jammed her fingers into the slot and finally pounded on the machine. She wasn’t amused when she saw the QR code.
“You really need the restroom, and the restroom only gives you toilet paper if you can do something strange with your phone,” she fumed.
Once the cashless society is achieved, the ubiquitous tracking of every commercial transaction will become possible. The mark-of-the-beast microchips may not even be necessary at that point to achieve total centralized control. This is why China, globalist banking interests and the Washington D.C. swamp are pushing this notion, and the COVID-19 pandemic is the crisis they are using to accelerate this sinister agenda against economic freedom.
