Made in America? No Better Time than Now to Investigate!

There are some good things that will come from the Chinese virus crisis and one of those just could be a resurgence in the ‘Made in the USA Movement.’

Frankly, I wasn’t paying much attention to where my purchases were being produced, whether it was a new mattress or the food I’ve been putting in the freezer.

LOL! Our microwave quit a few months ago and my husband insisted we find one made in America. No luck after hours of research on the net and a phone call to our local appliance store. So now we get by the old fashioned way—without one!

However, the Smithfield Foods fiasco and the near complete dominance of China in many aspects of our consumer lives that has been revealed in recent weeks has me paying more attention.

Many of you may have seen a facebook post circulating which makes a couple of claims including these:

FOOD FROM CHINA… Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA, was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here.

[….]

Chickens

The same applies to many chickens. They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be labeled is that they ‘WERE RAISED IN THE USA’. Not that they were processed in China!!!

This morning I wanted to see where the information was coming from and what was being said about it.

I don’t believe anything that the biased Snopes says, so I didn’t go there.  And, I am not saying that USA Today’s fact checkers” are any more reliable, but they did provide some information especially about the ownership of Smithfield Foods that appears legit.

LOL! But USA Today glossed over some of the other issues raised in the post.

By the way, it makes no sense to raise hogs here and ship them live to China for processing as the facebook post claims is happening.  Indeed that is why China bought at least one BIG MEAT company here—much easier to ship pork to China and elsewhere once it is packaged!

For readers of Refugee Resettlement Watch you might recall that China was looking to build and own a beef plant in Montana a couple of years ago.  It only makes sense to go where the cattle are still on the hoof and slaughter there!

I searched around and found an organization called “The Made in America Movement.”  I’m way out of my comfort zone on this topic so I can’t vouch for them, or others like them, but it is worth having a look!

So, now I am headed to the freezer to read some labels!

President Says He Will Now Halt all Immigration (temporarily)

LOL! I wondered if he listened to my man Jeff:

 

Here is the news from Conservative Treehouse last night:

 

Sorry I have been remiss in posting here, but see my posts at RRW on foreign-owned BIG MEAT companies (crooks indeed!), a longtime favorite topic of mine at Refugee Resettlement Watch.   (click on the headlines)

The meat giants lobby for cheap immigrant labor (you support those low wage workers with taxpayer-funded welfare) while they change the character of the American heartland!

Missouri: Somali Wanted for Kidnapping Children as Mother’s Body is Identified.

In the little meatpacking town of  Noel, Missouri, a Somali national is wanted for kidnapping children of a deceased white woman whose body was stuffed in a suitcase and found along Highway 59.

As of right now, Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, a former Tyson Foods employee, is still on the loose.

Authorities are looking for Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, 37, a Somali national.  Charged with kidnapping, but did he kill Jessica before he took the kids?

 

First here is the news about the body of Jessica McCormack being found,

MCDONALD COUNTY (KFSM) — The McDonald County Sheriff’s Office has identified a woman whose body was found along Highway 59 near Noel, Missouri.

I blame our PC culture for creating a whole generation of naive young women not sufficiently warned about African immigrants.

Jessica McCormack’s body was found July 29 on a steep hillside beside a suitcase along Highway 59 between Noel and Ginger Blue.

Investigators say the 25-year-old had not been seen since the middle of July. Authorities were not notified by anyone that she had been missing.

[….]

The children have been identified as 4-year-old Siah Casillas, 20-month-old Saidah Noor and 7-month-old Intisar Mahamed.

It is believed that at least one of the children was fathered by Mahamed.

Here is the most recent news,

Noel man charged with kidnapping murder victim’s daughter

 

A Noel man has been charged in federal court with kidnapping the 4-year-old daughter of a woman whose body was discovered in a suitcase last month. Read the full press release below:

Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, 37, a Somali national***, was charged in a criminal complaint filed late Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mo. Mahamed is not in federal custody and is a fugitive from justice.

According to an affidavit filed in support of the federal criminal complaint, the body of Jessica McCormack, of Noel, was discovered on July 29, 2019, near Missouri Highway 59 between Lanagan, Mo., and Noel.

The last time McCormack was seen alive, the affidavit says, was when law enforcement officers responded to a call at her home on July 16, 2019. Also present in the residence were Mahamed, who was identified as McCormack’s paramour, and McCormack’s three daughters, identified in court documents as Jane Doe 1 (four years old), Jane Doe 2 (two years old), and Jane Doe 3 (six months old). Jane Doe 2 is Mahamed’s daughter.

McCormack’s children could not be located after her body was discovered and identified.

An Amber Alert was issued for McCormack’s three children, who were located at a residence in Des Moines, Iowa, and taken into state custody on Aug. 8, 2019.

According to the affidavit, a woman who formerly worked with Mahamed at the Tyson plant in Noel told law enforcement officers that Mahamed arrived at her Des Moines residence with the children on Aug. 5, 2019. She discovered he had left on Aug. 8, 2019, the affidavit says, when she found a note from Mahamed informing her that he could not care for the children.

*** By the way, almost all Somalis in the US came in through the US Refugee Admissions Program.  At Refugee Resettlement Watch I had an extensive archive on how meatpackers and their appetite for cheap labor were negatively changing the heartland.

Alert! Tyson Foods to Open Meat Processing Plant near Provo, Utah

They say there is lots of labor available in the state!
Tyson
 
If you followed Refugee Resettlement Watch*** you know what sort of labor BIG MEAT is looking for—refugee and immigrant labor.  And, you know that Utah is a soft touch when it comes to migrants!
Some locations in the US have successfully fought the company and saved their towns, others caved to the pressure from Chambers of Commerce and globalist big business interests and their communities were never the same again.

Believe me, Tyson Foods will change your community forever! 

(In 2016 I traveled throughout the US with my primary interest being meatpacking towns and how refugee labor changes rural communities.)

Omaha: Sudanese Refugee Criminal Gang Busted

Nebraska has been an important refugee resettlement state for the US State Department and its resettlement contractors due to the many meat processing plants located there.***
If you are new to the issue of refugees and their importance as a source of cheap labor for global corporations welcome to the benefits (Ha!) of welcoming refugee workers to your states.

Big companies get cheap labor and taxpaying Americans pay for it in more ways than one!

President Trump has slowed the flow (for now!) of refugees from certain countries.
One gang down and more to go….
