Missouri River Flooding
World Food Supply in Crisis; First Step Is Remove Obama
by Marcia Merry Baker

June 4—As of this month, the extensive flooding throughout the Missouri River Basin has taken a huge toll on agriculture, and caused destruction across the nine-state region. Losses to crops in this Northern Plains wheatbelt, and Western cornbelt, are now piling on top of the already drastic agriculture damage from flooding in the Lower Mississippi/Ohio Basin, and in drought-stricken Texas and the Southern Plains. This all adds up to a world-scale food supply crisis, given the impact of extreme weather on other grainbelts around the globe, e.g., the drought in France (see below), underscoring the point that there is no bountiful harvest potential elsewhere in the world to ``compensate'' for the sweeping losses in the United States.
In the United States now, because of the extent of ruined fields, delayed planting, and soggy conditions or drought, crop losses are mounting across all the basic grains—corn, rice, and wheat, and also to hay and fodder for cattle. The prospect of high feed costs is a disaster for all livestock. This is a meat supply crisis in the making. Emergency measures are urgent. Where is President Obama in all of this? In London, inside his head. Look at the timing of his Springtime royalty tour in Britain, which he refused to alter, no matter what devastation was hitting at home. Obama left Washington on May 22—the evening of the Joplin tornado, and did not return until late May 28....

  • LaRouche:
    The Deadline for Glass-Steagall Is July 4

    On June 1, Lyndon LaRouche laid out an urgent timetable to save the world economy from plunging into a New Dark Age, and for removing President Obama from office: ramming the Glass-Steagall legislation through the U.S. Congress by July 4. There is no room for 'maybe' under the current circumstances of increasingly violent weather, and financialeconomic breakdown, LaRouche argued. We have to get this done now.
