Taxing cow burps in New Zealand, the left’s attack on agriculture continues

In a bizarre move, the government of New Zealand’s socialist Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern has announced it is now going to tax cow burps as part of Ardern’s grandiose plan to tackle climate change. The government is bragging that it would be the first country in the world to implement such a tax. Farm groups are warning that such a move would mark the end of family and dairy farms and the destruction of rural New Zealand, a major part of New Zealand’s economy. Global News reports: The government has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the country carbon neutral by 2050. Part of that plan includes a pledge that it will reduce methane emissions from farm animals by 10% by 2030 and by up to 47% by 2050. Under the government’s proposed plan, farmers would start to pay for emissions in 2025, with the pricing yet to be finalized. READ: Taxing cow burps?

Ireland: Another country’s left-wing politicians target agriculture

By the way left-wing politicians are acting, you would never know that the world is in a food crisis. But Ireland has now joined Holland, Sri Lanka and Canada in targeting agriculture. Yes, Ireland’s political elite is also planning to save the world by starving it. The Daily Caller provides more details: Ireland’s Coalition leaders debated Tuesday the extent of new greenhouse gas emissions cuts for the agricultural sector ahead of a cabinet-wide meeting Wednesday, with the Green Party pushing for a 30% decrease, according to the Irish Times. Others argued that the potential goals unfairly targeted agriculture as “the only sector of the economy that has to make sacrifices,” Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan, who represents a rural area, said.[…] Ireland’s possible emissions rule follows the Canadian government’s move Friday to require a 30% nitrogen emissions cut for the agricultural sector by 2030, which experts told the DCNF would slash production and contribute to the food crisis. And in June, the Netherlands mandated a 50% emissions goal despite acknowledging it could put livestock farmers …

Canada: More on Trudeau’s assault on agriculture

For those unaware, the Farm Credit Corporation (FCC), is a federal bank that provides financial assistance in the form of loans and loan guarantees to Canadian farmers. Its boss is ultimately Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Some are concerned about the release of information from the FCC’s office in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. According to Blacklock’s Reporter, FCC’s Regina office was wanting employees to keep track of any farmers who may have been involved in the trucker convoy in Ottawa, that took place earlier this year. Truckers from across Canada, gathered in the country’s capital city, calling for Trudeau to end his COVID mandates. Blacklock’s Reporter explains: “Internal documents confirm a federal bank, Farm Credit Canada of Regina, told employees to secretly record the names of customers who supported the Freedom Convoy. The Access To Information records contradict the agency’s public denial it began blacklisting clients “in support of activity related to the Freedom Convoy.” Staff emails showed managers were still compiling names of customers even after cabinet lifted the Emergencies Act: “If you become aware of …

Going the ‘extra mile’ of forgiveness in Zimbabwe

In Matthew 5:41, Jesus was referring to an interesting privilege available to Roman soldiers when he told his disciples, ‘If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.’ It’s where we get the idiom used today, about ‘going the extra mile.’ It is based on a Roman law, that allowed a Roman soldier to compel any idle, able-bodied man or a man walking in the same direction, provided he was not a Roman citizen, to carry the soldier’s armour for one thousand paces or approximately a mile. Jesus taught if a soldier required this of you, instead of resenting and fighting it, a person should forgive and offer to carry the soldier’s armour two miles. In the verse prior to this, Jesus also taught if a man steals your shirt, then give your cloak as well. And CBN reports that this is the attitude that Craig Deall and his family took in 2003, when the Zimbabwe government seized their farm, without compensation. It was part of the government’s land reform policy …
