Feds Raid Farmer’s Market, Intimidate Vendors, Destroy Food

Image source: Wikipedia

GILLETTE, Wyoming — Agents from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are being accused of raiding and shutting down a farmer’s market in Gillette, Wyoming.

Three federal agents last month made vendor John Thompson dump the chili he was selling at the Lakeway Farmer’s Market, according to The Gillette News Record. Part of the incident was recorded in a video posted on YouTube.

The video also contains a conversation between vendor Frank Wallis and a Gillette police officer. The officer was called after the agents came to the farmer’s market and got into a dispute with the vendors.

Wallis called the visit by federal agents a “raid.”

“They were trying to intimidate us when they called you guys,” Wallis said on the video of the agents from the USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service (FSIS).

The video shows an FSIS agent asking Thompson to sign a form stating he authorized voluntary destruction of his chicken chili. Thompson makes and sells bottles of Big John’s Chili.

State Representative Tyler Lindholm (R-Sundance) said the raid never should have occurred.

A state law called the Wyoming Food Freedom Act allows processed food to be sold at farmer’s markets provided they don’t contain any meat other than poultry, according to County 17, a local website. Thompson said he bought the chicken at a grocery store and it already had been subject to federal inspection. Thus, under state law, he said, his chili was legal.

“[The police] were very professional and acted like a public servant should act,” Wallis County 17, a local website. “They were there to keep the peace, but there was no threats going on from our side. It was the USDA agents that were threatening us with arrest.”

Said Lindholm, “We had no clue that they were coming. They didn’t notify any of our state agents. These were products sold from Wyoming vendors to Wyoming people. In my opinion the FSIS didn’t have the authority to inspect that food because it didn’t involve interstate commerce.”

      Complete ignorance in this video….even the cop does NOT know the law. Never sign your name….refuse unless an attorney is present. LEARN people….LEARN.

      The problem is that under our current governmental system “Federal Law is the law of the Land” and feds always have the power to do something like this under “federal administrative law”.

      Constitutionally – No. The sale of food isn’t mentioned in the Constitution and a Federal Judge knows that so the farmers have recourse through the courts.

    our Federal Government has gotten too large and too powerful to do their job for the American people. We need to eradicate all of them peacefully. I do not think most Americans understand how “EVIL” Hill C is. She wants to execute 250 million Americans. Most Americans have no clue that if she is elected we will be decimated. The 30000 guillotines are real.The fact is our government has been taken over by communist muzzies and most Americans dont even know this because they watch mainstream media which is nothing but total propaganda and lies. WAKE UP AMERICA GET THIS OUT because soon we will either have a controlled and censored internet or no internet at all and this is the only way we can find out what is really going on in this country and I assure you things are getting bad…really bad and again most American’s do not have a clue. They will not know what hits them when martial law is declared and the round ups and executions begin and do not think this is not their plan. Check out the Georgia Guide-stones they are no hoax no one spends millions on a hoax. Time is running out to prepare…maybe days or weeks till the next false flag and martial law is declared. Once that happens it is allover for most of us especially if you are over 35 and don’t have a skill they need. Long story short the guillotine is a very good way to die as is instant and painless so do not fear the guillotine.They are using guillotines because they are fast and efficient and can execute 100 Christians and Jews per hour and the organs can be sold because this is the only way to execute someone and not ruin their internal organs. Yes they are going to make money off you in death.These are some sick satanic people and they have to be stopped.
