“A food shortage is a big deal. You don’t want one. But now we’re getting one, just a little over a year into Joe Biden’s presidency,” Carlson says.
Thanks to Joe Biden’s policies and acquiescence to China, America may experience a full-blown food shortage, Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained.
“The first three things that any normal nation needs and thinks about obsessively are food, water, and energy. That’s the standard. In China, for example. Every government policy, foreign and domestic, is designed above all to secure adequate reserves of food, water and energy, and that makes sense,” Carlson said Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Instead, Biden was focused on “environmental equity” and amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
“The ‘Build Back Better’ agenda was the opposite of that,” Carlson continued. “It did not address, at all, about whether Americans might have enough to eat or could afford enough heating fuel to keep from freezing to death over the winter. Biden’s agenda was focused on the kind of added extras you get to when you’ve fixed everything else and then still have trillions left over.”
“A food shortage is not like deciding to skip dessert. It’s not a diet, it’s not voluntary. A food shortage is different. It’s scary. Food shortages topple governments. They turn moderates into revolutionaries.”
“A food shortage is a big deal. You don’t want one. But now we’re getting one, just a little over a year into Joe Biden’s presidency,” he added.
The looming crisis is exacerbated in part because of Biden’s sanctions against Russia that he admitted don’t work, Carlson explained.
“So, what is the point? We’re not sure, that’s a topic for another show. But, in the meantime, this country, we know this for sure, is being badly hurt by those sanctions. As Reuters recently reported, ‘Western sanctions on Russia, a major exporter of potash, ammonia, urea and other soil nutrients, have disrupted shipments of those key inputs around the globe. Fertilizer is key to keeping corn, soy, rice and wheat yields high.’”
Biden has also made the situation even more dire by shutting down domestic energy production in the U.S and allowing China to scoop up precious American farmland, Carlson said.
“It’s not just the war in Ukraine. In response to energy and food shortages, the Biden administration is shutting down domestic oil and gas production,” he noted. “That makes food more expensive, it makes everything else more expensive. And as the pressure on American farmers rises, and as food becomes scarcer and more expensive in this country, that same administration is allowing the government of China to buy up this country’s farmland.”
And how is the government responding to this preventable crisis they engineered? By doling out even more stimulus checks.
“For the second time in two years, politicians are sending out welfare checks to compensate for economic crises that they caused,” Carlson pointed out. “So, if you wanted to increase inflation, if you wanted to make the population weak and dependent upon you, this is what you’d probably do. Free bread next.”
