North Carolina’s Farmer Freedom Act criminalizes S.510

By Adam Love

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been keeping you informed about a bill recently introduced by Representative Glen Bradley to nullify S. 510, the Federal War on Food. S. 510 uses a patchwork of rules and regulations on the food “industry” to throw America’s heartland under the government-subsidized corporatist bus as it crushes local and community producers of healthy food.

Bradley’s bill, H.B. 65, the North Carolina Farmer’s Freedom Protection Act, nullifies S. 510 by making it a Class 1A misdemeanor to enforce S. 510 within the borders of North Carolina. Thanks to your support in contacting your legislators, H.B. 65 has passed its first reading and now has over 20 cosponsors.

Unfortunately, H.B. 65 is now stuck in the Agriculture Committee.

You see, even though the newly elected Republican majorities in the NC House and Senate quickly passed a bill to nullify ObamaCare in North Carolina, they’re afraid of the Farmer’s Freedom Protection Act.

Why?

H.B. 2, the Patient Protection Act, says that ObamaCare is null and void in NC, gives North Carolinians standing to sue Washington, DC over it, and instructs NC Attorney General Roy Cooper to join the 26-state lawsuit against ObamaCare in federal court. It does not, however, specify that enforcement of ObamaCare in NC is a crime.

H.B. 65, the Farmer’s Freedom Protection Act, goes a step further. It says that not only is S. 510, the War on Food, null and void in NC, but that any attempt to enforce it is a Class 1A misdemeanor. This interpositional language gives it teeth that H.B. 2 simply doesn’t have. That’s what has the members of the Agriculture Committee are scared.

  1. Good Move! We’ve been urging the States to reassert Food Sovereignty while urging the House to defund the Food Control Law.

  2. I suspect that if you look at what these elected official own & do, many of them are getting farm subsidies. This is one big problem in Tennessee. Farmers here tend to be Republican and get tens of thousands each year in federal payouts. They always vote to maintain the status quo. Likely the same thing in NC. Of course, members of the opposite party get payout from certain sectors too. We need principled representatives who will vote based on the rule of law, not those that are more concerned about remaining in power.

  3. Great work!.
    I’m now leaning more on moving to NC when I retire.
    If they thught that this issue brought out the anger in American’s, just wait until those control freak fools try to screw with our guns.

  5. In 2008, 180 countries declared that their citizens have a fundamental right to food. Only one country voted against this rudimentary right.

    Can you guess which country that was?

    How can the proclaimed land of the free and home of the brave justify such a mean spirited decision? And is it in the best interests of their citizens or in the best interests of someone else?

    Instead the United States made it’s intentions perfectly clear and voted against the right to food for it’s citizens.

    There is no right to food in the USA, nor is there any right to food legislation pending. Pretty simple isn’t it?

    I’m wondering if the USA’s refusal to participate in The Universal Declarion of Human Rights provoked the growing grassroots right to food movement and the real food revolution? Is the war on food just beginning to heat up?

    Vote with your $$$ by rejecting ALL GMO engineered poisons.

    Real people need real food.
