There’s a food shortage coming to America thanks to the coronavirus. Sadly, it’s not because there’s a lack of food. It’s because there’s an overabundance of regulations and laws that will hamper the ability of food producers to get products to the people and grocery stores. Potatoes are rotting. Livestock is being slaughtered. Meanwhile, millions of Americans wonder what—if any—food they’re going to put on the table tonight.
Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) has a long-standing plan to assist meat producers. He is also calling for similar legislation to assist in getting produce to the people. He fears a food shortage is going to happen if we don’t act immediately, and he’s probably right. Unfortunately, government will likely only react when the problem is here rather than preventing it from happening in the first place.
My bicameral/bipartisan PRIME Act would be a good first step. The legislation would make it possible for farmers to use existing infrastructure to provide food directly to consumers and grocery stores. Cosponsors already include Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.

Here’s an interview I did a few years ago that explains how creating one small exemption to one regulation could help facilitate a revival of safe, healthy, local, and affordable beef and pork:https://t.co/cCl6CPxRcz

There was a time about a century ago when food regulations were absolutely necessary. Storage, refrigeration, preservation techniques, and safety concerns needed to be addressed. But for at least the last four decades, the majority of food regulations have had little to do with safety and plenty to do with crony capitalism. Government has inserted itself, as it is wont to do, in the affairs of private companies, farmers, distributors, sellers, and consumers.
It’s time to roll back a ton of regulations and laws that prevent food from getting to dining room tables across the country. Many of them can go away and never return even after the coronavirus crisis has abated.
The coronavirus has created enough challenges to Americans’ health, financial situations, and freedoms. We can prevent adding a food shortage to the list if we act now and cut the red tape that’s keeping food off the shelves. Thomas Massie needs our support.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth 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 as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, 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.
Thank you and God Bless,
