Army Engineers flood 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland to save blighted Illinois town of 2,800

JUDGE SAYS SOUTHERN ILLINOIS LEVEE CAN BE BLOWN UP
By Miriam Moynihan
A federal judge on Friday ruled that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can blow up a Mississippi River levee, which would flood Missouri farmland but prevent the flooding of an Illinois town.
Two HUGE intel leads in my email box this morning from way-back contacts that I’ve had for years, that are actually somewhat connected concepts.
1. File this one under “Now It All Makes Sense.” A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded out farmers in the Missouri River flood plain and bottoms notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to BUY THEIR LAND.
Intentionally flood massive acreage of highly productive farmground. Destroy people’s communities and homes. Catch them while they are desperate and afraid and then swoop in and buy the ground cheap. Those evil sons of bitches.

2. Speaking of evil sons of bitches, George Soros appears to be “investing” in farmground through the same puppet company that he used to get into the grain elevator and fertilizer business. The company is called Ospraie Capital Management and is buying up farmground in a joint venture with Teays River Investments as a partner. Here is that announcement: Click Here
Okay. Here’s the connection. This Ospraie outfit was a hedge fund specializing in commodities that was started and run by some cocky child who didn’t know how to trade bear markets and got his butt kicked into next week in the grain market of 2008. He also lost a fortune trying to trade RARE EARTH METALS. In fact, it was so bad that he had to shut his fund down because he had promised his investors that he would give them all of their investment money back if the fund lost more than 30% in one year. Whoopsie.
But it appears that Soros swooped in and saved the day because this Ospraie is the “co-investor” with Soros that bought the remnants of ConAgra’s trading operation and renamed it . . . Gavilon. In the industry, it is widely acknowledged that Ospraie IS Soros. That [CNN] article is here.
As you probably remember, Gavilon just recently bought both DeBruce Grain out of Kansas City and the biggest grain elevator company in the Pacific Northwest, thus making Soros (who is the money behind Gavilon through both his own Soros Fund Management AND his de facto control of Ospraie) the third-largest grain company in the U.S. with 280 million bushels of storage capacity, behind only Archer Daniels Midland (542 million bushels storage capacity) and Cargill (344 million bushels storage capacity).
Bottom line: Soros, through Ospraie, is buying up farmground. Please also note that the hotlink citation above is dated June 26, 2009. My contact says this has been going on for two years – and also remember what I told you about farmground prices inflating wildly, especially in Illinois. I have personally confirmed farmground in Illinois selling for $13,000 per acre within the last month, whereas that same kind of ground in Illinois was going for $5,500 per acre the day Obama was inaugurated.
UPDATE: More on the Missouri Dams
Posted by Ann Barnhardt – June 26, AD 2011 4:50 PM MST
There are folks who are confused as to how the situation with regards to the Missouri River dams could be the fault of the Army Corps of Engineers. After all, isn’t the amount of rainfall an Act of God?
This is not a FLASH flooding dynamic. This isn’t happening because it rained three feet in 24 hours. The largest factor in this flooding is the runoff coming from the melting of the snowpack in the Rocky Mountains. The snowpack is precisely measured and the number of acre-feet of water that will be drained into the Missouri River basin each spring is a precisely known value. If you don’t believe me, pull up the website for ANY ski resort. They will have DETAILED snowpack depth data updated on a near-daily basis. One could work up usable data based just off of the ski resorts – but we also have frequent and detailed snowpack measurements coming from the National Forests and National Parks. I am hard-pressed to think of a meteorological dataset that has the precision, reliability and lead time that the runoff from the snowpack has. The Army Corps of Engineers knew to the acre-foot how much water was coming, and when it would arrive (summer tends to happen at roughly the same time each year).
Knowing that we had a RECORD snowpack this year, the ACoE should have opened the Missouri dam system up starting early in the spring so as to gently and gradually draw-down the reservoirs and give each dam system enough slack to absorb the snowpack runoff. They intentionally did not do this, and citing “wildlife habitat” concerns in collusion with the Marxist-Environmentalists, they kept the reservoirs full, thus ensuring that when the snowpack runoff arrived, it would have nowhere to go. Again, this was all 100% unnecessary and 100% intentional. I don’t care how many C- affirmative action hires they have, there is absolutely no way that this was a function of being “surprised” by water that has been measured and sitting in the Rocky Mountains for MONTHS. Snowpack of Quantity X inches yields runoff of Quantity Y acre-feet. It is a liner function that any Beavis or Butthead could have looked up on a table.
I find myself worried not just about farmground, but about low-lying residential areas in both Omaha and Kansas City.
Gulag Notes from Arlen
Maybe we could try something just a little risky. Maybe we can mention some subjects which have, or could have something to do with this, then ask for verification or further information. That is risky because Gulag Bound is not a forum where people are used to posting. But it’s not like there’s much to risk. Perhaps you would like to look for such information and post it in comments below, whether the looking is on the ‘net or elsewhere.
1. I’ve been told that during the war in Vietnam, the U.S. caused rains to build up over the Mekong River, in order to make it difficult for Viet Cong to traverse the delta east into South Vietnamese territory. Would you like to look for information about this, or other instances of intentionally induced or increases of rain over a region?
2. It has been reported that numerous kinds of particulate matter has been found in rain gauges, including those along the Mississippi or Missouri Rivers. Can you find the most pertinent and valid information about that? And yes, that could include information about contrails and chemtrails.
3. Has the U.S. government been trying to secure land in Louisiana or elsewhere along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, after the Deepwater Horizon crude oil (and Corexit) catastrophe. What knowledge of this may be assembled?
I’m sure there are other pertinent questions. Maybe I’ll post a new entry in GulagBound.com strictly for gathering this and related information. Some time tomorrow, I should be able to consider that more fully and follow through.
By the way, I just saw the weather forecast tonight. It calls for severe storms in the Missouri and Mississippi River Valleys. Someone just called all this “a five hundred year event.” Whether he was referring to just the new Missouri River rains, or including this Spring’s Mississippi River deluges, he did not say.
A measure of wheat for more than a penny. How about your soul and total obediance.
None of this is ever going to stop until We The People start arresting these people, trying them for treason, and then putting them in prison for the rest of their lives. This will never, ever stop unless there are massive, massive personal consequences for these people.
One billionaire is trying to control the water another the grain. Still you sleep. Hunger and thirst may sing you to sleep one day and wake you in the morning. Of course then it won't be a conspiracy theory; it will be a cold, hard reality.
