A handful of the world’s most important commodities – these include corn, wheat, soybeans, and vegetable oils – are skyrocketing in price, thanks to the economic shutdowns imposed in response to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).
Article by Ethan Huff from Natural News.
This week’s Bloomberg Agriculture Spot Index, which tracks key farm products, shows a nine-year record surge in price for these commodities. Global food prices are already the highest they have been since mid-2014, which is being driven in part by a rally in crop futures.
Staple food crops like the aforementioned are used not just to feed people and cattle, by the way. Some of them, including corn, are also used for fuel in the form of ethanol, which means gas prices may also continue their surge.
“Soaring raw material prices have broad repercussions for households and businesses, and threaten a world economy trying to recover from the damage of the coronavirus pandemic,” reports Bloomberg.
“They help fuel food inflation, bringing more pain for families that are already grappling with financial pressure from the loss of jobs or incomes.”
United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FA) senior economist Abdolreza Abbassian revealed in an interview that a “bullish force” is behind these price increases, which are occurring internationally.
“The indications are that there is very little reason to believe prices would remain at these levels,” he says. “It’s more likely they will rise further. Hardship is still ahead.”
Speculative greed and endless money printing will cause billions to starve
The federal government’s endless money printing is not helping matters, either. Rapid inflation is weakening the U.S. dollar to the point that food costs are rising regardless of how the markets are behaving.
All that “stimulus” money is also being pumped into the markets, allowing investors to speculate on food commodities and drive up their prices. All of these market forces are creating a hyperinflationary environment that is very concerning, especially for the already struggling lower and middle classes.
“For central banks, a spike in prices at a time of weak growth creates an unwelcome policy choice and could limit their ability to loosen policy,” Bloomberg claims.
The poorest and most politically unstable nations of the world are being hit hardest by the spike, as any significant volatility in raw materials prices threatens to make millions, if not billions, go hungry.
“The relentless rise in prices acts as a misery multiplier, driving millions deeper into hunger and desperation,” says Chris Nikoi, the World Food Programme’s regional director for West Africa, which is one of the poorest areas in the world.
It’s “pushing a basic meal beyond the reach of millions of poor families who were already struggling to get by,” he added.
Another factor driving higher food prices is increased demand from communist China for food imports. Corn prices nearly doubled last year because of China, while soybean prices and wheat prices increased by 80 percent and 30 percent, respectively.
Bad weather conditions in both the U.S. and Brazil, two major areas where crops are grown, are likewise exacerbating the problem. Analysists from Rabobank, Mintec, and HSBC Global Research all warn that prices could go even higher if the situation is not resolved somehow.
The effects of all this are already being seen in the form of higher prices for tortillas in Mexico, beef in Brazil and retail palm oil in Myanmar. Here in the U.S., bacon and other meat cuts are also on the rise.
“Generally, people see this inflation continuing,” says Tosin Jack, an analyst at Mintec, which monitors commodity prices. “The trend will continue for some time and it will translate into consumer goods.”

Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
