Breaking news: Multi-agency armed raid hits Rawesome Foods, Healthy Family Farms for selling raw milk and cheese

(NaturalNews) This is a NaturalNews exclusive breaking news report. Please credit NaturalNews.com. A multi-agency SWAT-style armed raid was conducted this morning by helmet-wearing, gun-carrying enforcement agents from the LA County Sheriff's Office, the FDA, the Dept. of Agriculture and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).

Rawesome Foods, a private buying club offering wholesome, natural raw milk and raw cheese products (among other wholesome foods) is founded by James Stewart, a pioneer in bringing wholesome raw foods directly to consumers through a buying club. James was followed from his private residence by law enforcement, and when he entered his store, the raid was launched.

Law enforcement demanded that all customers (members) of the store vacate the premises, then they demanded to know how much cash James had at the store. When James explained the amount of cash he had at the store -- which is used to purchase product for selling there -- agents demanded to know why he had such an amount of cash and where it came from.

James was handcuffed, was NEVER read his rights and was stuffed into an UNMARKED car. While agents said they would leave behind a warrant, no one has yet had any opportunity to even see if such a warrant exists or if it is a complete warrant.

Here is my story

Share this on the Rawsome Raid. Tyranny has escalated http://wp.me/pZzqp-1C8

Wow. Interesting reading

It's good to know the whole story. Who knows what that woman planned to pass off as raw milk.

"Wish you'd stop being so good to me Capt'n"

Every time I read these stories it reminds me of that line, spoken by Paul Newman from the movie Cool Hand Luke, just moments before receiving a good beat-down and the legendary "failure to communicate" line.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

The most obvious tyranny is government stealing food from people

Share this story with people who have not woken up yet to how corrupt and out of control the government is.

Ron should address this issue.

The best way to get RP in office is to attract "Democrat" voters and this issue, along with his principled and consistent stance on the wars (attacks), would likely attract many of them.

What Issue?

Let's see, he mentions the raw milk issue in almost every speech as an example of government overreach.

He has introduced bills to allow the sale of raw milk across state lines.

His first job was working in a dairy.

Are you thinking of some other issue?

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Yes. The Raw Milk Issue.

I'm aware that he discusses it, but I was suggesting it might be wise to discuss it more often and more pointedly.

Not everyone attends his speeches or reads his bills which means that much of what they hear him say reaches their ears through the television.

When Ron is on TV he tends to focus more on monetary and foreign policy issues.

Perhaps he'd benefit from steering his points towards this issue more often when he's not preaching to the choir.

This is really sad. If you

This is really sad. If you live near LA, please show up to the protests. There will be corporate pawns posing as protesters maybe handing out info from the "organic" consumers association, but ignore them and let the city know how you feel about this.

The Agents Are Well Within Their Contract

If anyone uses federal reserve notes to conduct commerce then they have to follow whatever the private federal reserve tells them to do, period.
There are no rights in commerce.
I just had a 45 minute court hearing on this subject today.

If you buy and sell using federal reserve notes then you are subject to the Federal Reserves rules which they implement through their private corporation U.S. Government. By using federal reserve notes you are in fact acting as a corporate division of the private corporation U.S. Government and must follow all of the company rules.

Here are some questions from my hearing today which were used to try and establish jurisdiction by the Federal Reserve's private court.

Yes this really happened.

How do you pay for groceries?

Response: I don't "pay" for groceries, I exchange coins for groceries.

How do you exchange coins for groceries?

I put the coins in a machine and trade them for the groceries.

So you pay with coins?

No, I trade the coins for the groceries. I do not pay for the groceries.

What do you think pay means?

Pay means to transfer funds by signing a negotiable instrument or to extend credit to a debtor by signing an instrument of credit.

So you buy your groceries with coins?

I do not believe I have ever bought any groceries. To buy means to obtain something by using a debt instrument. I don't believe I can buy anything, I am not a debtor.

So then you can trade coins to pay this bill?

No, the DEBTOR blank f blank is charged to pay this bill. To pay means to sign your name extending credit or transferring instruments of debt and is not the same as to trade in coin, so you cannot pay with coins only trade with coins.

So you see, it is all about the debt based Bank of England currency that gives them jurisdiction to send a Swat team in to see what their currency is being used for.

Perfectly legitimate. Insane, but legitimate.

Get rid of the federal reserve and the private U.S. Government racket goes bye bye too.
So if you want an end to tyrrany get rid of the Banksters debt based currency or don't use it until it no longer matters. By using their currency you are funding all of their evil schemes and your own enslavement.

So simple people can't believe it.

The Oracle

I have heard this argument

I have heard this argument before, but have never seen any source of authority substantiating that private use of Fed notes is grounds for government interference or intervention. On the face of it, your position appears to be based merely on supposition, out of which is created a hypothesis. If you could sight a source of authority (case law, legal principle, a statement from the Fed, or whatever), that might allow us to harmonize laws with laws. In the mean time, please take into account in your hypothesis that he who creates the liability must provide the remedy.

BGH

Of course, it's still safe for us all to consume as much of Monsanto's BGH as we'd like!! ....or as much Monsanto chicken hormone as we'd like....yum-yum! Somehow, we just can't seem to figure out why 9 year-old girls are growing breasts and why we're all fatter but mal-nourished..and perhaps a little bit more stoooooopiddd. Duh......

No doubt these savage animals

could of used their fecal matter for bio-terrorism. That's not counting the butt-load of global warming gases they produce. We should torture the chickens and cows to see what they know of future operations, chickens first though, as the cows might be less susceptible to pain.

Bully Train Against Healthy Food Continues

This train is getting old.

Spread the word here to break this train, then scrap it to the junk yard.

Learn about natural remedies and the causes of (damned) many diseases, one of which permeates peoples worldwide and is what Weston Andrew Price, the first research director of the American Dental Association some 100 years ago, discovered and wrote extensively about and that somewhat soon afterward became suppressed, remaining so to this day. That discovery: root canals destroy life.

That finding is the beginning of the cataclysmic harm that is dentistry.

Most of dentistry is criminal. Avoid that "profession" if you care about life. The correcting of this profession will out reach any other endeavor to maintain and reclaim health. Nothing else comes close to dentistry's destruction. Nothing else.

Look for the dentistry section in that website. There, you'll find several solid books on dentistry's dangers. Prices opus, albiet incomplete, is 1,174 pages comprising two volumes.

Volume 1 (703 pages): Dental Infections, Oral and Systemic
Volume 2 (471 pages): Dental Infections and the Degenerative Diseases

Michael N., your wife will appreciate the above information.

To anyone: stay well or get well.

If you've got direct correspondence to Dr. Paul, get him this information. Look at his photographs or his old ones, at least. Look to the bottom teeth when he smiles. He has a crown, which could be a root canalled tooth. Learn about osteonecrosis in the jaw, known as a jaw bone cavitation. It's probably why he has arthritis in his hands and has poor knees, especially the knee that was surgerized.

the Weston A. Price plug, and want to add

Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions; a cookbook based on Price's research.

I've just recently began drinking raw milk and I would encourage any DPer to find a farmer who sells raw milk and get it!

You will notice the health and taste difference. I have had much more energy since introducing raw milk into my diet.

Nourishing Traditions, Prices' Work

Hey, thewhitewhale,

Right on, man or gal. Yeah, I've heard that book's a winner. Some day I'll buy it.

I didn't know that book was based on Price's research. The research she used is his book Nutrition and Degeneration? I have that one. It's interesting, I must say. Man, I sure hope life gets decentralized so people can do what they want. If it does, there will be many Weston A. Prices. Speaking of whom, have you seen or read his research on dentistry and diseases? Those two volumes are must-haves.

On a different note, how'd you put Fallon's book in link format? I like that. I've looked at the text symbols page but not close enough, evidently, or else I'd have figured out how to make text into a link.

Thanks, whitewhale, and have a good day.

Re-Posted

This on my facebook..with this comment
My opinion on this is: The government doesnt want us to eat healthy food. Cause if we eat healthy,our brains will work, when our brains work we can think, when we can think, we can reason, when we reason we can see that government is one great big pile of crap...(Vote RonPaul2012 and cut the crap)

I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

Maybe it is time to recognize who the real enemy is and...

take appropriate action. If I were sheriff, I'd deputize all the able bodied inviduals and arrest the federal agents.
I'd also notify the feds I authorize my deputies to use deadly force if they meet armed resistance and notify the state attorney general to issue a felony warrant against the high official who orders these raids.

I'd vote for you...

I'd vote for you...

Raw milk is very healthy and the more healthy people there are

the fewer people for the sickness industry that is the true masters of the FDA.

If the FDA and USDA served us they would leave healthy food and supplements alone and go after the damnable patented drugs that kill us by the hundreds of thousands and the unhealthy junk foods that are making tens of millions of us unhealthy.

Gee, the more they

raid and shut down these farms it makes me wonder what is in Raw Milk that they don't want us to have. Dang, I would like to try some, it must be something good.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

very very good..

it would take some getting accustomed to, but once you retrained your buds, you would never go back.

Strange thing those buds..my grandmother would never use anything but real butter when we were growing up, she refused to use "oleo" or margarine as we call it now. The other day she confessed..."I've been using oleo for so long now that I tasted real butter and didn't care for the taste." It shocked me.
