Ode to the U.S. Cattle Industry
It could be titled “Death by a Thousand Cuts” or “Cripple and Take Control”, take your pick.
We know “The Force” behind vertical integration of our beef industry is calculated, incremental and controlled by some very malicious groups and individuals of the George Soros kind,. If we don’t stop it, the oldest “legal” occupation will be captured, contained and placed in a top down control box right along with the pork and poultry industries.
Public Private Partnerships have created this power web. Mega rich global corporations joined forces with radical environmentalists and infiltrated our agriculture organizations, associations, and foundations and set the process of implementing strangle hold policies upon the U.S. food producer, in this case the American cattlemen. We’ve overslept, it’s time everyone woke up.
Here’s the story in a nutshell: USDA’s Vilsack recently opened U.S. borders to foreign beef imports by repealing Country of Origin Labeling aka COOL (with support and praises from some of our trusted ag groups which has everyone baffled, until one realizes these once great groups have been infiltrated by the Soros kind.). This foreign beef is now being labeled as “product of the U.S.” and sold as such with catastrophic results for the American beef producer.
The American beef producer is now being ushered into a “sustainability plan”…remember it, regulations within air, land, water and animals to meet the standards of those who want to destroy us? It comes complete with third party auditors and mandatory RFID tags to monitor the beef producer’s “sustainability” methods…which in all reality can never be measured. In actuality it is extortion to control America’s food supply by a few elites- of the Soros kind.
I’m ecstatic Trump won, he can stop the regulations, but what he might not be able to stop is the destruction and trajectory of “The Force” created through Public Private Partnerships. Stopping it will be up to the working cattleman. Stop feeding the beasts that aid in consuming his profits.
Cattlemen are gathering around R Calf USA for facts and help. I recommend joining them.

Propaganda Works...“Warning, We Can’t Feed 9 Billion People By 2050!”
How do you frighten the masses into following orders? Propagate propaganda using useful idiots. This technique initiated by communist leaders Lenin and Stalin employs people who will blindly follow orders without checking the facts.
This fear statement spews control, comes straight from dastardly dude, George Soros’ playbook (the guy behind Black Lives Matter and whose U.S. destruction tentacles reach far and wide via NGO’s, non-government organizations). This lie is being disseminated into education curriculum, agriculture and mainstream media and agriculture organizations, associations and foundations.
Several weeks ago I attended a board meeting and listened to a young adult spread this falsehood as they solicited money from our group for our state’s livestock expo. Extra money was needed to help participants pay the cost of mandatory RFID tags for the barrow show. “We must feed 9 billion by 2050” and something about the current state of technology saving our food supply, a line I’ve heard, read and identified as propaganda many, many times. But my jaw still dropped when this “professional” individual exclaimed this misinformation in their opening statement.
I questioned them on why RFID tags were needed if the barrow show was a terminal show. I questioned the ramifications to owners if disease was found in an animal. I questioned if this was law. I questioned who manufactured the tags. I found out that it was not a law, but a rule…a rule that might have grave consequences to individuals. I found out the manufacturers of the tags were also charter members of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef which is pushing for mandatory sustainability-traceability within the beef sector. Connecting the dots yet?
The U.S. farmers have fed the world for decades supported by capitalism, not control. Today these food suppliers are being destroyed from within by regulatory overload and false propaganda.
We must stop blindly jumping through hoops designed by Soros to destroy private property rights. Put our thinking caps on and ask questions. Make sure you’re rooting for the right team.

It’s the little things
“Life is a journey not a destination” Ralph Waldo Emerson. This week my article has nothing to do with big bad green boogey men but rather time and the wasting of it.
How’s your journey going here on earth? Does your “merry heart doeth good like medicine’ or do people want to give you an extra dose to keep you quiet? Do you hit the ground complaining each morning or do you praise God you have feet to put your shoes on and shoes to put on those feet.
Deciding how we live each moment (we are all allotted the same amount of time) can make us or break us… and others including family and friends.
The Bible is full of good stewardship suggestions: jobs, health, wealth, mind, marriages, parenting, and actions towards others. Take our jobs, we’re told to consider the ant and git r done; our health, we’re told to treat our body good, it’s the temple of God; our mind, keep our thoughts pure; our spouses, treat them with respect and like we want to be treated; our kids, discipline them love them, so others won’t have to and will; others, put them first. It’s laid out pretty plain and simple, all we have to do is follow the map. Our journey will be way more productive, no promise of fewer bumps, but we can equip ourselves with great shock absorbers.
Our journey on this earth will end, nobody gets to stick around indefinitely. The path we choose concerning the little things; the little bit of extra time we spent helping a child, an elderly person, listening to a friend, sharing the Bible, taking a meal, a hospital visit the little things list is endless, every decision about these little moments will count.
An old Chinese proverb goes like this, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. Enough said… Happy travels.

Oh the tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…Walter Scott
Truth, where do we find it? Mainstream media? Daily newspaper? “Trusted” agriculture medium? How about our “trusted” agriculture organizations, associations or foundations?
In 2012 Ag media giant, Fairfax, was purchased by Penton. In 2016 Penton was purchased by Informa. Within four years most agriculture media came under the control of Informa. Should we pay attention to their messages? You bet. Are they filled with “the sky is falling climate change is destroying the earth it’s going to burn or freeze we can’t feed 9 billion people by 2050 so must manage your private property by requiring social and environmental CONTROL of YOU the U.S. food producer, manufacturer, energy provider”? If so throw it in the trash, cease your subscription, find a publication free from this manufactured misinformation aka propaganda. Same goes for Ag organization memberships.
Don’t forget to check your child’s text books, this propaganda is being dispensed at your local school as well. College students beware, you’re a target too.
True, Trump will begin to blow torch the regulatory snowball, but it will take time to melt away the regulations implemented over the past eight years, they’re packed in tight, made certain by the early blitz by unelected bureaucrats funded by green radicals using public private partnerships.
Truth and facts stripped of climate change control bias, brought to you by George Soros and minions, will have to be mined. Most of these entities and news outlets have been infiltrated, hijacked and are now the mouthpiece for this grand global scheme to destroy America’s resource providers, some unwittingly, but of course that’s how Communism works, remember “useful idiots”?
Walter Scott got it right, but the Bible beat him to the punch. “The simple inherit folly, but the prudent are crowned with knowledge.” Proverbs 14:18, in other words, don’t be deceived
Defying deception and traversing truth won’t be easy. I’ll help you, here’s a short list of truth sources:
C- Fact, Western Ag Journal, Kansas Natural Resource Coalition, Colorado Independent Cattlemen’s Association, R- Calf USA, author radio host Trent Loos.

A Voice Silenced; a Message Magnified
January 26th marks the one year anniversary of the murder of fellow rancher, LaVoy Finicum by FBI agents.
Brad and I made the long trip to Utah to attend LaVoy’s funeral as did thousands who shared this deep inexplicable bond. This profound connection to a total stranger stretched across the U.S.; we stood next to a fellow Oklahoman during the funeral procession. LaVoy was one of us, a rancher concerned about freedom. He understood completely the destructive nature of federal government overreach.
Some “true” facts free of manufactured liberal media spin, straight from the Finicum family website:
“LaVoy was not a member of a militia and did not serve in the U.S. military. He was an Arizona rancher, husband and father who loved liberty and understood his civic duty to uphold the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution. During the 2016 Oregon occupation he acquired the position of speaker due to his gift and ability to communicate clearly the grossly misunderstood Constitutional principles that have been abandoned, forgotten or simply not taught to the American people.
His ability to powerfully teach such principles in an easily understood fashion came from years of personal study and it was this skill, the family believes, the ability to reach into the hearts of those he shared his property rights empowerment information with which lead to his assassination. He empowered others to appropriately use their agency to act rather than be acted upon by an overreaching government.”
Honoring LaVoy, friends and family have organized THE MEETING WITH LAVOY FINICUM THAT NEVER HAPPENED, Sat, January 28, 2017, John Day Fair Grounds, John Day, Oregon.
Topics include; The Importance of Constitutional Sheriffs, Property Rights, Political Prisoner Trial Details, State Sovereignty and more. The family will also share facts about the wrongful death lawsuit and the trial which ended with a powerful “not guilty” verdict.
Many great speakers include notable constitutional attorney, state prosecutor KrisAnne Hall host of The KrisAnne Hall Show and Trent Loos Nebraska farmer host of radio program, Loos Tales, and weekly columnist for The High Plains Journal.

Replacement
I could write about how irked I am at the NCBA, OCA, TCFA and other “trusted” beef groups for further advancing the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and the new U.S Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef which advances the bold faced lie of “sustainability”. I could write about the irksome declaration by a policy chairperson at the NCBA convention in Nashville this past week, “We’ve worked hard to produce high quality beef in this country, and we hang our hat on that”…really, policy chairperson? Did you forget that NCBA recently upheld the repeal of the Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) which takes away consumer’s ability to distinguish our great beef that you hang your hat on, from Argentina’s or Brazil’s or other third world country’s beef that’s entering the U.S. because NCBA helped repeal COOL? I could write about that stuff but I won’t.
I’m going to write about Brad’s hip replacement. For five decades he’s rode too many wild animals, drove too many semis too many miles; repaired too many flats on too many trailers, cars and pickups in weather ranging from 15 to 100 degrees. He dug too many corner posts, lifted too many heavy bales, barrels and baby calves and drove too many miles on too many balers, swathers, rakes and tractors…all with a smile all while raising U.S. Beef.
On Thursday, Dr. Tkach replaced that worn out hip at McBride Orthopedic Hospital, a facility owned by the doctors that work there. As a healthcare consumer, I’m sold on this marketing arrangement. I have never experienced such a friendly staff…ALL staff… from doctors, nurses, food and housekeeping, the service and care we received was remarkable.
I can see the sparkle returning in his eyes “He’ll Be Back” (Arnold Schwarzenegger voice) probably wearing out the other hip as he continues to work hard raising more U.S. Beef. But there’s consolation knowing that when he does there exist a place with great service to have it repaired. About U.S. beef replacements, we get rid of that bad bone when Country of Origin Labeling is reinstated.

A Year in Review
It’s been nearly a year since I started sharing Behind Ag’s Green Mask attempting to connect the dots of burdening regulations which are destroying America’s ranchers and farmers, America’s food suppliers, to the United Nation’s Agenda 21 Sustainable Development Plan.
Here is what I hope you’ve learned: Sustainability is the arch nemesis, a predetermined and designed term that holds ever moving non attainable social and environmental regulations that demand the time, attention and finances of American ranchers and businesses. It will always escape definition and keep those who continue to try to appease its instigators squandering their time and funds-beef checkoff dollars and tax dollars. I hope when you now see the words; stakeholder, social, environmental (or now cleverly disguised people planet profit) continuous improvement, common, facilitator, you know without a doubt that Agenda 21 Sustainable Development is in play within that organization, foundation or association.
There are NO consumers demanding “sustainable” beef, something instigators of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and the new U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef want to keep hidden. Only an agenda of control. In the beef industry that results vertical integration of our industry just like pork and chicken. The World Wildlife Fund is behind the GRSB as are the four major meat packers JBS, Tyson, Cargill and National. That means mandatory third party audits on your farms to determine your “sustainability”.
Public Private Partnerships are used to advance it. The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef is a perfect example: Binding, financially burdensome business destroying policy is made when Public (government entities, USDA in this case) partner with Private (organizations, associations, foundations) using the funds of big business (sponsors) to drive the radical extremist’s goals of control.
Agriculture and liberal media is used to spread the climate change “fake news” (I will call this what it is: lies). Obama’s 7 Climate Hubs churn out skewed science based on climate change (It was reported this week National Ocean A has been cooking their books tampering with data to create results that favor global warming). The cow is one of the culprits of global warming according to the “experts” researching her carbon emissions, another lie.

February 20,2017
A Year in Review and What I Hope You’ve Learned continued…
So we’ve learned that we have a designed term, “sustainability” being used to dismantle America’s food production system… among other things, but this column has been dedicated to shining a spotlight on the actions of greenies and an elite global consortium that strives to control our nation and world through fear, intimidation and regulations. The target, America’s farmers and ranchers.
This control agenda was designed around fear of earth’s destruction by its inhabitants which are responsible for global warming/climate change. This fear message has been used for decades. In the 70’s-fear of a freezing planet… well the same control radicals pushing the same control agenda are now using the earth can’t sustain itself and use fear of global warming, climate change. The scary thing today? Tax dollars now fund research based on the lie of global warming and the lie now makes its way as “scientific fact” into academia, associations, organizations, foundations, government programs, policy and wind up on our farms in the form of regulation targeting our air, land, water and animals.
So how do you churn out climate lies? You cook the books just as NOAA and NASA have done starting in 2008 when Obama took office and began transforming our country into a socialist nation. According to C- FACT a trusted resource on climate change facts whistleblower, Dr. John Bates from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, went on record this month sharing that NOAA knowingly released “unverified” global temperature date in violation of rules on scientific integrity specifically intended to influence policy on Obama’s global climate change agenda. Read the full story, Whistleblower links NOAA study to climate treaty agendas at www.cfact.org
So you “cook” climate data to destroy a prosperous nation that has fed the world for centuries, destroy it’s ability to produce goods and force food importation... tried to find a U.S. raised tomato lately? Cantaloupe? Cucumber? Beef now that COOL was repealed? The dismantling continues, the key to stopping the destruction is stop playing their game, stop appeasing the enemy, and shed a bright light on the truth behind the lie “sustainability”.

China allows U.S. beef, a look at imports and infiltrations
Or Death by a Thousand Cuts

Part 1
The first in a two part series, maybe three, we’re diving deep into enemy infiltration…
Cattle producers never ever forget the enemy has infiltrated your business. When NCBA speaks WWF speaks. When NCBA praised China’s decision to open markets to U.S. beef, WWF gave the praise. When the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association unveiled the partnership between the extreme environmental group beholden to U.N. policy- the World Wildlife Fund and our beef industry- WWF’s voice became YOUR voice. The U.N. Charter, not the U.S. Constitution ruled. WWF began demanding U.S. producers strive for “SUSTAINABLE” excellence all found within the Sustainable Ag Initiative handbook producers will be forced to follow if the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef policy is implemented.
“Sustainability”, code for American producer destruction using environmental and social overregulation upon air, land, water and animals all components used to create centuries of GREAT AMERICAN AGRICULTURE PRODUCTS, destroys American producer’s ability to make a profit. It keeps us running and fetching; jumping through social and environmental regulatory hoops. We are losing, foreign global food markets are winning. Example: destroy the San Joaquin Valley because of an endangered species, shut down production and destroy the bread basket of the world. U.N. Globalists win. Mission accomplished; America’s ability to feed herself destroyed.
Don’t forget USDA’s APHIS was infiltrated by the radical animal activist group, HSUS. Obama’s secretary of Agriculture, Vilsack hired former HSUS attorney, Sarah Connant. The Obama administration policies are not going away overnight, they are driven deep into our organizations, associations, foundations, education curriculum and policies because non-government organizations or NGO’s such as WWF and HSUS have been blended in Public, Private Partnerships with government agencies rolling out destructive policy. When USDA APHIS recently announced public animal disease traceability meetings remember this is the same USDA that removed Country of Origin Labeling denying American consumers information on the origin of their beef purchases.
Hold those thoughts until next week and we’ll look at who makes up the Global and U.S. Roundtables for Sustainable Beef: the four major protein packers and WWF.

Resolution Reccomendation

Cease from Anger.
That’s what my daughters suggested I do when one of them had the idea that we exchange New Year’s resolution recommendations for each other. Brad thought that was a bad idea, but we did it anyway.
They think I’ve been overly distressed. A little angry. Afraid I’m going to “stroke out.”
Well I probably am, have been, will continue to be, will try and work on it, and probably will.
But I’m betting that anyone that realizes what’s going on in our country is probably feeling pretty angry right now too. If not, ignorance is bliss, or they have a government job.
I’ve experienced a lot of emotions during my life: sadness, jealousy, embarrassment, fear, and anger to some degree.
Anger doesn’t just occur. It stems from something. I believe in my case it’s fear and frustration.
I grew up during the Cold War. Nothing was more feared than the A bomb during the 50’s and nothing scared me more than the “test” performed daily on our black and white T.V. suggesting that “i…

It's Life

This is my backyard. This is our office. It's located in my backyard. So are the loading chutes, sheds, barns, silos and molasses tanks (tanks full of molasses that cattle find extremely tasty and nutritious.) Loading cattle here has been a common sight for as long as I can remember.
Tonight we loaded bulls. It started to snow when they were loading. I hope the driver and the bulls get to their destination safely.
The bulls have been in my backyard for several weeks. Getting fat. Getting ready to go north. Getting ready to...uh... go to slaughter, or should I say "harvest." Not too long ago that word reminded me of wheat. Kind of like the word "gay" used to make me think of someone happy.
Anyway, today our "politically correct" friends recommend we don't refer to the word that actually describes what has taken place since Adam and Eve. The word that describes what has taken place for centuries to insure human survival. No, today we mus…

Back In The Saddle...Almost

I’m back…for a while, barring I don’t slip on another tutu or fall over another tombstone.
The morning after Easter 5:45 a.m. to be exact, I slipped on a princess tutu and tore my rotator cuff. In June I had surgery and spent the summer going to physical therapy three times a week 60 miles away.In August my Grandmother Hazel passed away.She had lived a long, happy, successful, life.She was 96 years old and it was hard to say goodbye to one of my best friends.
My shoulder was on the mend, but at Grandma’s graveside service I fell over a tombstone.During the service I’d been watching near misses and worried about someone tripping over the one on my end of the tent.I didn’t realize there was another on the other end.Remember I have 10 grandkids, 7 of them under the age of 7.I had my hands full of water bottles, mine and theirs. As I hurried out of the tent to speak to some relatives I fell head, neck and face first over the tombstone my rear and high heels in the air and my mouth full of …
