SPECIAL PZ Insider Report – Graphic Proof Food Prices Are Up / Shortages Growing
June is officially here. For the past four plus months I have been sounding like a broken record warning about the high food prices that were coming.
We have seen roughly a 50% rise in food prices from Jan 2014 to June 2014.
Yes, there are people who cannot believe it and will give you excuses in one form or another. Some are valid, some are not. No matter what, food prices are on the rise, in fact they are skyrocketing.
We read in Revelation the following…
Revelation 6:1-8 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
I did not want to rehash all the stuff that I have been saying these last 3-4 months, so what I have chosen to do is present graphic proof.
Folks, the food shortage is here and so are the high prices. In some areas of the country it is not as drastic, but in other parts, it is unbelievable.
What caused me to present this was some pictures I saw from a friend of mine who lives in the mid-west. She is a prepper friend of ours and she went shopping at her local megastore (starts with a “W”)
She was astounded by what she saw. High prices, but much worse, there was no food. What food there was, it was only 1 -2 boxes deep on many shelves.
We were talking about this and there were some excuses given on her Facebook page about end of the month, WIC, food stamps, ect.
In our conversation she said the following…
“I have been to the stores at the end of the month MANY times and have never seen the empty places, or whole sections with one brand of things like the same boxes of Hamburger Helper. I know it's not just food stamps.... People are blind.”
I agree and what we are going to have to start dealing with is people’s “normalcy bias.” I know that I have used that term, but just in case, here is what it means.
Normalcy bias is the idea that people believe nothing bad will happen because it hasn't happened before. It's also known as analysis paralysis, incredulity response or the ostrich effect. Of course, that last one refers to someone behaving like an ostrich who puts its head in the sand.
Here are pictures taking June 1 by my friend…
Note the empty space behind many of the boxes in the picture above. Also note that much of the same type is spread out to make the shelves appear to have more food on them than they actually do.
These are potatoe bins, this is a staple and there are not many bags here.
Again, my friend said that she has never seen the shelves this empty before.
I posted these pictures to my Facebook page and here are some of the responses I have gotten on my wall…
“I've been seeing this in the Washington DC area too... Maybe the government needs to start rationing food?? Oh, wait, that's what they want to do. Make us need them...”
“I've noticed items I normally buy missing, I found it odd, but as a Prepper am aware of what’s coming. Thanks for pointing this out.”
“I too have noticed this, but have been for a while taking your advice Ray...things they are a changing...”
“Prices have jumped astronomically since Jan. Im buying extra first of every month. Its tough now. Just imagine by winter!”
“I have been seeing the same thing here in Ohio. It's going to get rough.”
“Got a pressure canner, canning all the meat we can right now.”
“If it's hard now, imagine when it's double the cost it is now.”
I did a quick search for rising food prices. If my friend was taking pictures, I assume others would be as well. Here is just a small sampling…
These are from Peru - Remember what I have been saying about food coming south of the equator?
This was taken at the end of May 2014 in Denver CO by one of my readers. NOTE the $47.57 standard price. The $44.17 is if you are a store card member.
What trends are showing is that the further north you go, the higher the prices are for food.
Example, Oklahoma has the ability to grow more food due to a longer growing season. Texas has an even longer season.
Places like Michigan, the Dakotas, Wisconsin, New York, Maine, etc, their growing season is shorter due to the winters.
In fact in some areas they are STILL getting frost on the ground. Frost kills new plants. So whatever seed is in the ground has been killed by snow and frost. These areas will experience higher food prices due to the fact of their location and the inability to grow food that will sustain the larger more dense areas of population.
The law of supply and demand is already starting to take effect as we can see in the pictures above.
But that is not all. Think things are bad in the states, here are some MAJOR high prices in Canada…
June is now officially here. High prices and shortages will probably not go away anytime soon. With high prices and shortages the next thing that will start to take effect is food riots.
In fact this past week the World Bank came out officially and warned people that rising prices will push the world’s population towards civil unrest and cause people to riot.
What is a food riot?
FOOD RIOT – “World Bank official definition” - a violent, collective unrest leading to a loss of control, bodily harm or damage to property, essentially motivated by a lack of food availability, accessibility or affordability, as reported by the international and local media, and which may include other underlying causes of discontent.
Notes: This map displays the incidence of food riot episodes in each country worldwide since the global food crisis in 2007. Two types of riots are distinguished:
Type 1 riots are mainly motivated by food inflation, while
Type 2 riots are mostly motivated by severe shortages.
Type 1 & 2 are both combined (1)
In the following pages I have a very good report by Mike Adams who covers the Food Riots report that the World Bank put out this past May.
I also have my recent report that I sent out on a Saturday that maybe not everyone has seen yet. In this I report on the US facing higher food prices due to inflation, natural disaster, drought, etc. This is a very eye opening report and one must realize that with the US Government coming out and officially stating that prices will rise, it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy and grocery stores all over the nation will raise their prices to make up for years of lost profits.
High prices are here and shortages will become more and more apparent. These high prices will not go away and in fact will rise higher and higher as supply and demand increase.
There will become a sect of people who will not be able to buy food because it has become too expensive to obtain.
Argentina has been facing this problem now for several years. I was told in my interview with Fernando Aguirre that he spent $1500.00 US on a basket of groceries for a week’s worth of food for him and his family.
I was utterly surprised. I asked him what happens to those who do not have $1500.00 for food?
He said .. “They starve.”
If you read the food riots report that I have linked in at my end notes, you can read about Argentina’s food riots.
I have mentioned over and over again that the US has been following in the exact same footsteps that Argentina took on their path to financial demise. Today approximately 25% of Argentina’s population cannot afford to purchase food. Argentina also has some of the highest crime now in the world. A starving man will take drastic measures to ensure that he and his family have food to eat.
That is why it does not take a rocket scientist to figure our that what is going on in Argentina will most likely take place in the US.
It is still not to late to start storing up food, start growing a garden, learning to hunt and fish and learning how to preserve any excess food you might have on hand.

PZ Insiders – keep an eye out for PZIO – PZ insider Info Only. This is special breaking news that when you get these emails you need to open them immediately. It is my goal to keep the PZ Insiders informed of any major event that could be life threatening or life changing. In the PZIO alert emails I will also be providing possible solutions so that you can take action right away while there is still time.
We are now at that June / July point that many have been concerned with.
The rubber has met the road.
There is a Russian proverb that says " When it happens you will know that it is true, by then it will be to late."
Don’t have a “wait and see” attitude. Take action now while you still can. Look at food as an investment and start stocking up.

More and more people are becoming concerned about intrusion into their private lives. One might say "I have nothing to hide, so why should I care."
What would happen if our own nation became hostile towards bible believing Christians?
Now do you have something to hide?
I personally believe that this is something that we seriously need to start taking into consideration. I believe that we need to start thinking about networking with each other, teaching each other and being a source of encouragement to each other now instead of later.
It is my desire for PZ Insiders to have an area where they can learn more about dealing with the topic of going underground like many churches in persecuted countries have previously done.
As I find more information, I will post it to the PZ UNDERGROUND area. I will also be adding files to the PZ Survival Library to support this area as well.
We also have our the articles that are open to our registered PZ Members, our PZ Forum as well as our “Who’s Who” in Bible Prophecy area. The who’s who area is a ongoing project that is constantly being changed and updated.
