Climate Extremists Will Help Write the New Food Nutrition Guidelines

There is no area of our lives over which the government will not seek control. Take the latest example. Obama is reaching far beyond publishing new food nutrition guidelines or insisting on calorie counts in fast food restaurants, he is intent on allowing global warming alarmists and other extremist groups to co-opt them as well.

In an article entitled, “Obama administration pollutes guidelines for healthy eating with unhealthy ideologies,” published Sunday by the Washington Examiner, National Center Senior Fellow and Risk Analysis Division Director Jeff Stier says environmental activists within the U.S. government plan to change the nation’s dietary guidelines to promote foods that they believe have “a smaller carbon footprint.”

HHS and the USDA are meeting on the 14th and they are including guidelines that will include climate change activism which will negatively impact food stamps, military and school meals programs. It will be expensive and it will push a far-left wing agenda which includes ideas such as abandoning meat and dairy as much as possible.

Members of the committee are special interest groups who will for the first time have input into the guidelines.

Guidelines will now include “sustainability” as part of the agenda in drafting the guidelines. Other agenda items include “immigration,” “global climate change” and “agriculture/aquaculture sustainability.”

Food security is being used to advance an extreme and expensive left-wing agenda. Please read the article here.

Just the printing of the guidelines will be expensive to say nothing of the cost of food.

For one thing, climate extremists want to push people towards becoming vegetarians or better yet, strict vegans. None of this will affect climate in any way whatsoever.

Immigration comes in as well. At the present time, illegal immigrants are not allowed to collect food stamps though the “legal” members of their family can. However, collecting food stamps doesn’t affect immigration status and lying on food stamp applications is easy to do.

Aquaculture sustainability is promoted by extremist groups like Greenpeace that want to curtail or seriously limit fishing and grow fish almost exclusively in farm settings.

There is nothing you will do, no service you will receive, no food you will eat, no fish you will catch that the government won’t control.

    When government has control over the food you can eat and the medical care you can get, they have total control over your life. Some low-level bureaucrat can condemn you to death with the stroke of a pen.

    Who does not obey, does not live.

    If Americans don’t wake up they will lose all liberty and freedom. Too late to realize that they are slaves to the government. We don’t know what we’ve lost unit it’s gone.

    The Tea Party is a group of concerned citizens who still adhere to our Contitution. That still believe that the government should be the guardian of liberty, to protect the inherent right of its citizens to life, privacy, property, and freedom to succeed or fail according to their own ability. Sadly a large segment of our population has lost sight of these principles with help from the progressives.

    Sorry meant Constitution…

    I believe those principles also and respect the Tea Party. You are very welcome.
