Dollar Devaluation: Hard Evidence At Your Local Grocery Store

There are certain facts that are difficult to face in the world. One is that the currency you have spent you life working for isn’t worth what you thought it was. In reality, it may not even be worth the paper that it’s printed on. The United States paper currency has been very slowly devalued for over a century now. This was accelerated into high gear on August 15, 1971 when Nixon took the United States off the gold standard. By removing the gold backing (value) from the United States currency, it opened the door to the unfettered money printing that we have today. Many analyst over the years have seen the potential of a currency crisis and put their reputation on the line by bringing this information to the public. I will not attempt to parrot their thorough, highly-researched findings and predictions here.

The Dollar Is A Strong Fear Monger

One of the issues of debate among the public, informed and uninformed, is the fact that even though all the pieces are in place for a rapid devaluation, there seems to be a lack of perpetual hard evidence on main street. Specters of gyrating gas and commodity prices ebb and flow like a intensive care patient’s heart rate monitor. Yet life seems to continue without the anticipated decline and flat line. However, in the age of information, things are done differently. Computer algorithms and Utah’s NSA supercomputers reign over information, and strategic decisions are made using real-time data. Decisions can be precise, well hidden, and highly methodical given such technological advantages.

  • The Bigger Picture

    It is a no-brainer that in the age of information and social media, a rapid $2 dollar jump in gas prices, or your favorite bag of chips, would cause a revolutionary nightmare. One that would be sure to cause companies and industries that are forced to flash the price publicly to lose market share overnight. More importantly, such actions would put a blinding spotlight on the third world status of the US economy, as well as the soon-to-be, non-world reserve dollar. Adding to the potential issue is the fact that most riots, mass demonstrations, and revolutions are historically kicked off by soaring food prices. In a time when congress has a 8% approval rating from their tinderbox population, which is waiting for its spark, continuously raising food prices would be political suicide for all that hold office. In addition, it would instantly manifest a strategic nightmare for the central planners.

    This Is What Stealth Inflation Looks Like

    Stealth inflation is where the blind spot can be bridged. The images in this article tell the difficult truth for all to see, and the numbers don’t lie. This is how you are being kept calm. This is how your politicians have managed to breeze through their office terms not having to answer the hard questions of why they are allowing our currency to head in the direction of third world status. Do you think political decisions at the county, state and federal levels would be shown in a different light if your food bill had been VISIBLY raising by 20% to 30% per year for consecutive years?

    Figure 1 below shows a container label with its contents having a net weight 2 lbs 1.0 oz or 936 grams, which equals 39 servings.


    Figure 2 below shows the reverse of that same label, stating that a serving size contains 5 Tbsp or 24 g.



    Figure 3 shows the newest label/product from the website (link here). The product is the same price, however comparing the numbers to Figure 1, we see that the new contents only have a net weight of 1 lb 13 oz or 822 grams, which still surprisingly contains 39 servings


    And Figure 4 below shows the reverse of the new label/product from the website (link here). The product has the same servings size yet we now see that 5 Tbsp equals 21 g. In addition, most of the nutritional amounts show a visible decline.


    Comparing the labels side by side yields the following:

    Nutritional Facts

    Old Label

    New Label

    Serving Size5 Tbsp5 Tbsp
    Weight in Grams (g)24 g21 g
    Total Servings3939
    Sodium135 g115 g
    Cholesterol5 mg0 mg
    Total Carbohydrates13 g11 g
    Sugars11 g10 g
    Vitamin A10%10%
    Vitamin D25%25%
    Vitamin C6%4%

    In summary, it appears that during an estimated 6-month period this product has not only redefined its own standard for how many grams are contained in a tablespoon, the following contents have vanished: 114 grams of total net product weight, 3 grams of net weight per servings, 25 g of sodium, 5 mg of cholesterol, 2 g of carbohydrates, 1 g of sugar, 1 g of protein, 5% calcium, 2 % vitamin C, and 5% riboflavin.

    Planned Obsolescence Of The US Dollar

    For those that may doubt their lying eyes, please refer to the term planned obsolescence, and the  documentary about it titled ‘The Light Bulb Conspiracy‘. Planned obsolescence is defined by Wikipedia as follows:

    “…a policy of planning or designing a product with a limited useful life, so it will become obsolete, that is, unfashionable or no longer functional after a certain period of time. Planned obsolescence has potential benefits for a producer because to obtain continuing use of the product the consumer is under pressure to purchase again, whether from the same manufacturer (a replacement part or a newer model), or from a competitor who might also rely on planned obsolescence”.

    Do you think that an industry looking to squeeze blood from your family’s stone would want its customers (you) buying less product, less often because production costs are skyrocketing? There’s little, if any, resistance to the practice of slowly decreasing serving sizes and net weight, while attempting to keep the packages the same size, so the consumer is none the wiser. This is why Whole Foods can constantly offer “buy 2 get X amount off” coupons. In reality, the consumer (you) are simply purchasing the same amount of food that was in one package a year ago. Except now, it’s split into two packages appearing to be the same size as the one last year. This creates the illusion that you are getting twice as much for your money. In reality, the combined net weight (Net Wt.) of both packages equals the same amount of what was contained in one package previously. In addition, you also get to pay almost twice the amount because you think you are getting more.

    What Now?

    Strategies can be used to navigate this information. One direction would be to educate yourself on food production and gardening. Anything that allows you to lessen your dependance on companies that continualy prove by their actions that they do not have your best interests in mind. Start taking back control of your dinner table. It is easier than you think! Another direction would be to learn about assets such as gold, silver, and farmland for their role as a store of wealth. In addition, I encourage all those reading this to press the issue with your supplement companies, food industries and health products. Do not let those that wish to make money off your ignorance continue to do so. Publish the results on Facebook, Twitter, and other outlets, showing their willingness to be transparent. The idea is to reward those who will work with the public. The others will be forced to change, or be crowded out of the market. It’s really that simple. Our only rule is that we do not attack anyone! Such things have no place in this movement. The integrity and motives of those using such tactics will be questioned and ultimately ignored.

    Author’s note: I hoped to include the response from Augasonfarms regarding an email that I sent to them pointing out the information in this article. However, after nearly two months, I have given up. My theory is that food manufactures are officially prohibited from divulging this information to consumers in the name of national security as it may cause panic and loss of faith, globally, in the US currency (paper).
