The Fight for Food Freedom in the USA

Here is my “mass letter” that I made in reply to the Rawesome Foods Raid on August the 3rd, 2011. The Facebook page for it is called “The Fight for Food Freedom in the USA.” Also like “Help for James Stewart of Rawesome Foods.”

1st unedited draft of letter is as follows:

“As of August the 3rd, in the year of our Lord, 2011, the people of the United States of America say “Enough!”

 On August the 3rd this year, a small privately owned members only business club was RAIDED for the SECOND time in a little over one year. The crime? Selling raw unpasteurized milk and raw dairy products, like cheese!

Very early on the once beautiful morning of August the 3rd, armed forces (yes, that means with guns) from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the Los Angeles County Department of Agriculture, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a SWAT-style raid at Rawesome Foods in Venice, LA County, California.

The founder, manager, and owner, James Stewart (age 64) was charged with 13 counts. 12 of those counts related to the processing and sale of unpasteurized milk to club members and the last count related to the unwashed, room-temperature eggs; storage method Rawesome members support and like.

 James Stewart was arrested on the sport, WITHOUT being read his legal rights by anyone. (There is eyewitness proof of this.) Should we thank the FDA for destroying a small business and hurting our economy even more in order to “save” us from the evil raw milk? Why didn’t they just pasteurize the milk?

 Rawesome’s entire stock of food was raided. HUGE truckloads of food were taken but while the food was waiting to be loaded they were left in the sun for HOURS; all the milk was pour down the DRAIN; and even $9,000 in CASH was taken! It has been estimated that $70,000 worth of perishable foods were taken away from the Rawesome Foods club and its members and their children and families. But that is not all! The computers and their files, video camera files, and audio files were also taken!

 The initial bail price (no bail bonds) was $123,000 for James Stewart, but thanks to pressure from the public and to a little help from Christopher Darden, the price of the bail has been dropped down to $30,000.

The search warrant allowed research/take any evidence of “interstate transportation,” Documents concerning the Right To Choose Healthy Foods (RTCHF) organization, all tax records, all real estate transactions, billing records, purchasing records and club records, all emails, receipts, cash register data, credit cards receipts, inventory records and so on, all address books, telephone numbers, contacts, client lists, business cards, etc., and the list goes on. (This information comes from NaturalNews.com.)

Along with Mr. Stewart a few other people where arrested on charges of CONSPIRACY. These people include Victoria Bloch, Sharon Palmer, and Lela Butterly. All of these people, including Mr. Stewart, are reportedly bailed out of jail with one condition… all but Ms Butterly have a gag order placed by the GOVERNMENT on them! No First Amendment rights any more, I guess…

NaturalNews.com puts everything into one paragraph very well: “…First, the government attempts to take away their right to engage in commerce and enter private contracts. Then, the government vandalizes this buying club, steals their cash, destroys their entire product inventory and steals the computers from the store. The owners (and conspiring farmers) are arrested at gunpoint and taken to jail without even being read their rights. And finally, to top it off, they are slapped with a gag order which prohibits them having their First Amendment rights so that they might tell their side of the story…”

 Although this fight for freeing Mr. Stewart might be over, a deeper darker fight is has been secretly covered up BY the FDA and the government over the past few DECADES! The War on Raw Milk, the War on Food, the War on Raw Food or whatever you want to call it has be going on as early as 1985!!! (And even earlier according to some people)

In July 1985, Burzynski Research Clinic (Texas), the FDA stole 200,000 medical and research documents, and forced Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski to pay for copies to be made of them!

In 1989, the FDA seized the entire inventory and the business records of Pets Smell Free (Utah), a company that produces a natural product for eliminating pet odor. In 1990, the FDA raided the Highland Laboratories (Oregon), a company that produces vitamins and nutritional supplements.

In 1992, Agents from the FDA and officers from the King County Police Department raid the Tahoma Clinic (Washington), a natural health clinic. Because Dr. Jonathan Wright has been giving patients injectable B vitamins in high doses, agents decide to storm the clinic with guns drawn, and seize product, computers, records, and other products.

 In 2001, Forty armed federal agents and USDA officials storm Three Shepherd’s Farm (Vermont), and confiscate and destroy the farm’s entire flock of sheep for supposedly having mad cow disease.

In 2006, Ohio police, Ohio Department of Agriculture officials, FDA agents, and agents from unmarked vehicles intercept a raw milk pickup in the Cincinnati area. They confiscate milk and harass customers, and leave farm owner Gary Oakes so shaken up that he is hospitalized three times for post-traumatic stress disorder.

In 2008, Agents pose as customers trying to buy goat cheese from Sharon Palmer’s Healthy Family Farms (California). She is then arrested and thrown in jail, and her businesses temporarily shut down.

In 2010, Officials from various health and law enforcement agencies raid the personal home of Rae Lynn Sandvig (Minnesota), a raw milk and local food consumer, for allegedly “assisting in the sale of raw milk” from her home by sharing food with neighbors.

Also in 2010, Federal agents arrive unannounced at Camino de Paz Montessori School and Farm (New Mexico) on supposed suspicion of marijuana. After scouring the premises and terrorizing teachers and students, they find nothing but fruits, vegetables, and other produce. And now in 2011, the Rawesome Foods Raid.

I bet you never heard any of this on the mainstream media news channels, cause I know I did NOT.
(If you own a computer, go to NaturalNews.com for more of these kinds of stories.)

 The government, namely the FDA, is hiding their war. The proper name for their war would be “The War on Food Freedom!” And it is a battle, we hold the food and they bring the guns. Even though there are SO many other REAL bad guys out there, the FDA picks on a small business owner who WAS living out his “American Dream.” It has turned into an American Nightmare!

 On my blog, I have defined Food Freedom as the right to Biblically steward (or manage), choose, buy, own, sell, and grow your own food that is healthy for you and those around you. Other people may have different definitions, but that is mine.
Another definition, a very common and simple one, which works the same way, is, the right to choose your own food or farmer(s).

Freedom of Food, for the American people, and the lust of power, for the government and FDA, is at the heart, the root, of all of these raids.

 Times are changing in America and its time for people to wake up and apply the knowledge in action. Let us take a stand, in the face of the FDA and the rest of the government, and say “Enough!” “Stop telling us what to eat and stop trying to control our food! Let our action of food choice define us, not our action of food control!”

Join me, and thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of other Americans in this fight. It is not about us, but the future generations. Our food choices define our health, our children’s health, and in turn, define how we live. We can learn and eat without the FDA n our faces 24/7 and raiding our other food choices each year.

We are not asking or demanding for food freedom, but we are saying that no matter what the FDA does, we WILL have Food Freedom, once again (as it was when this country was founded) we SHALL have Food Freedom in America and be the beacon of hope for other countries to do the same. Tell the FDA to stop raiding small businesses like Rawesome Foods, stop telling us what to eat and to get out of our refrigerators!

 Join us as “We the People of the United States of America…” “One Nation Under God,” as it ought to be, in the fight FOR Food Freedom!
United we do stand!
