Rising Food Prices Part 4: Can Regenerative Agriculture Solve the Food Crisis?

This is the 4th in a series of interviews I am conducting to try to better understand why food prices have been rising, where they are going as we move toward a potential food crisis, how this will impact the evolving landscape of food availability, and what we should do about it.

Allen Williams joins me to talk about conventional, organic, and regenerative agriculture, and how fuel and fertilizer inputs differ between them, and why regenerative agriculture offers the best resilience in the face of what looks like an emerging food crisis.

Allen Williams is a 6th generation family farmer and founding partner of Grass Fed Insights, LLC, Understanding Ag, LLC and the Soil Health Academy. He has consulted with more than 4000 farmers and ranchers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America, and other countries, on operations ranging from a few acres to over 1 million acres.

Allen pioneered many of the early regenerative grazing protocols and forage finishing techniques and now teaches those practices and principles to farmers globally. He is a “recovering academic”, having served 15 years on the faculty at Louisiana Tech University and Mississippi State University. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science from Clemson University and a Ph.D. in Livestock Genetics from LSU. He has authored more than 400 scientific and popular press articles, and is an invited speaker at regional, national, and international conferences and symposia.

Allen and his colleagues specialize in whole farm & ranch planning based on the concept of regenerative agriculture. Their approach creates significant “value add” and prepares the landowner for multiple enterprise/revenue stream opportunities that stack enterprises and acres. This approach allows for enhanced profitability and/or investment value. They routinely conduct workshops and seminars across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Over the next month, as part of this series, I will conduct interviews and panel discussions on my podcast in an effort to better understand the issue and what to do about it. Relying primarily on interviews will allow me to better understand the issue while staying focused on finishing my vaccine research so I can ultimately return to finishing my book.

I will eventually be concluding my work on the vaccines with a COVID Vaccine Guide, which I will distribute for free to paid Substack subscribers, those who have pre-ordered my Vitamins and Minerals 101 book, and members of the CMJ Masterpass. Articles in this series that lay out actionable foundations of my future protocol for vaccine side effects will be for paid Substack subscribers and Masterpass members. However, most of them will available for free for the first 48 hours, and all of them will be readable with a free trial. Paid Substack subscribers get immediate access to my COVID Guide, and are entitled to 50% off a membership to the Masterpass as well.

Tony Greer joins me to talk about how lockdowns, politics, and the commodity trade contribute to rising food prices.

Tony Greer is partly responsible for my awareness of the emerging food crisis as I had initially learned of Doomberg from him last year. He has been a macro trader for over thirty years, is a regular on the Real Vision Daily Briefing, and is editor of the Morning Navigator.

Tony brings us unique insights as a trader who saw the rise in commodity prices early. Will the rotation out of tech stocks into commodities continue? What role does this trade have in amplifying food prices itself? Can we use technical signals from the market to gauge the likelihood this problem will get much worse, and to be able to spot light at the end of the tunnel when it finally emerges?

Tony surprised me by suggesting the most important signal to look for as "light at the end of the tunnel" ushering in a reprieve from rising food prices is not so much a technical indicator from the charts or from economic data but rather a sustainable 180-degree reversal in the political hostility to the energy markets. He suggests food prices would take another 7 or more years to calm down once this reversal is sustained.

None of this is financial advice and you must make your own decisions at your own risk. However, we conclude with some thoughts Tony has on how to keep savings safe in an environment like this.

With Dr. Michael Howell, PhD.

This is the second in a series of interviews I am conducting to try to better understand why food prices have been rising, where they are going as we move toward a potential food crisis, how this will impact the evolving landscape of food availability, and what we should do about it.

Michael Howell, PhD joins me to discuss whether "money printing" and the liquidity cycle might be playing a role in rising food prices.

Howell has a PhD in Economics and specializes in analyzing global central bank activities, liquidity trends, and capital flow data across 80 economies. He is CEO of CrossBorder Capital, which he founded in 1996. He developed the quantitative liquidity research methodology while he was Research Director at Salomon Bros. from 1986. He was subsequently appointed Head of Research at Baring Securities in 1992, and was top-ranked “Emerging Market Strategist” by institutional investors for the three years prior to setting up CrossBorder Capital. Michael has worked in financial markets since 1981 and is a regular international conference speaker. He is a qualified US Supervisory Analyst.

The spike protein pokes holes in cell membranes at concentrations much lower than those achieved with vaccination, contributing to COVID-like illness and mitochondrial damage. But is the J&J immune?

This is not medical advice.

This podcast was originally published in written form as a Substack article, fully referenced, found here:

My tentative view on what is causing it and what to do about it. This is NOT caused primarily by the conflict in Ukraine and a sudden peaceful solution to the conflict will not avert it.

This episode covers how a negative PCR test can serve as a marker for systemic inflammation and spike protein toxicity, creating a widely exploited statistical anomaly to make misleading claims about hospitalization.

I consider this the absolute most important topic of our decade: the core anomaly in COVID data that is exploited worldwide to claim the vaccines are protecting against hospitalization among those who get COVID, yet which is at complete odds with the CDC data showing the majority of people hospitalized for COVID-like illness are vaccinated and that the vast majority of them test negative.

"COVID-like illness" refers to the signs and symptoms of COVID, regardless of the results of a PCR test.

While the clinical fate of PCR-negative COVID-like illness is completely unclear, we cannot just ignore it.

In fact, recent evidence suggests that as much as 69% of PCR-negative COVID-like illness might be genuine COVID.

Zooming out to capture the total COVID-like illlness, the "Hospitalization Paradox" refers to the fact that the vaccines do not protect against it at all. When the vaccines have high efficacy against a negative test, all they do is make ill people test negative. In contexts where they have sub-par efficacy against a negative test — the Johnson and Johnson trial, after 3 months of being vaccinated with no booster, and in the face of increasingly vaccine-resistant variants like delta and omicron — suddenly they appear to have efficacy against hospitalization, but only among vaccinated people who test positive. The vaccinated people who test negative, by contrast, wind up in the hospital with PCR-negative COVID-like illness.

In this very extensively documented article, I argue that this can be explained by the negative test, during the waning phase, becoming a marker of vaccine-induced systemic inflammation and the persistence of spike protein in the body, contributing to acute and cumulative spike protein toxicity and possibly spike-induced autoimmunity.

The pandemic that no one dare speak of: 79% of people hospitalized for COVID-like illness test negative for COVID. The vaccines protect against testing positive among those hospitalized, but not against winding up in the hospital with the symptoms. And deaths? We have no idea.

What the heck is going on?

YouTube took down my interview of Jessica Rose after it started going viral and hit 35,305 views.

They gave me a warning.

Then they took down my livestream of the Washington, DC Defeat the Mandates Rally. 

That earned me a strike. I'm currently in "YouTube Jail" until Monday morning. Two more strikes and I'm out.

In this episode, Chris Masterjohn interviews Angela McArdle on strategies to defeat the mandates. McArdle is the current chair of the Los Angeles Libertarian Party and is spearheading an effort to amend the New York City charter to prohibit the mayor from making mandates.

We discuss the ethics of mandates, steelmanning the case in favor of them, and then justifying our opposition to them. We discuss strategies to defeat them, as well as strategies for employees to keep their jobs when faced with them.

Angela has worked as a paralegal and legal aid for over eleven years.  Angela currently works in litigation and also has a private practice where she provides self help legal services to low income clients. The bulk of Angela’s practices focuses on real estate and constitutional law.

She was a key organizer for the Los Angeles 2013 protest against a ban on feeding in public rights of way, which was a major obstacle to feeding the homeless. 

Angela received her Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Biola University in 2009 and a Paralegal Certificate from UCLA Extension in 2013.  Angela is also trained as a craniosacral therapist through the Upledger Institute. 

She believes strongly in the sanctity of personal choice and allowing people to govern their own lives.

In this episode, I have Dr. Dmitry Kats, MPH, PhD. He has a PhD in epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Many people have asked me what I think of his Niatonin protocol for COVID. And as you'll see in this interview that has since evolved into the Niacur protocol, which now has the dosing regimen of just niacin and curcumin, having abandoned the melatonin from the original protocol. You will find in this 3.5-hour conversation all about the justification for that protocol, how it evolved over time, where it came from, and you will get a really interesting look into the fascinating mind of Dr. Kats.
