Food Shortages, Price Hikes are Coming

Friendly advisory: At Safecastle, we work closely with a half-dozen food suppliers to get you the best fresh storage foods on the market. Today's collective inventory situation at those suppliers is unprecedented in my experience. That is, every one of them is experiencing significant backorder/out-of-stock issues on many of their storage foods.

Two main reasons--One, skyrocketing demand for storage food as the headlines wake more and more folks from their slumber ... and two, sourcing shortages for many of the basic food staples needed to keep the production lines moving at full capacity.

And as most of you know, you put these two factors together and the product is price inflation.

We're seeing it here friends. It's happening right now. There is no longer any time to wait if you are putting off laying in your food stocks for what is dead ahead. I just topped off my own personal larder to the roof. Many of my family and friends are doing the same.

New Foods Listed and an Old Favorite is Back!: Canned ghee (clarified butter) is back. When it is available, it doesn't last long, so if you have been waiting for it, act fast.

Got kids? Canned Mac & Cheese is a life-saver, with a long shelf life. It's new!

Canned Pilot Bread Crackers--canned for long shelf life, ready to eat.

Other new foods--canned breakfast cereals, LuRPs, potatoes, egg noodles, and soups to name a few.

And in addition to our long-time favorite brands, we just launched a whole new food line in our store, "American Family Supply," #10 can cases of basic dry foods.

Check out all the newest listings here (two pages).

We still have much to be thankful for as we approach the holiday we especially take the time to express our gratitude to God.

Stock up, stay safe.

Sen. Lindsey Graham "Sees Confrontation with China, War with Iran"

US Senator sees 'confrontation' with China, war with Iran

by Michel Comte Michel Comte – 53 mins ago

HALIFAX, Canada (AFP) – The United States faces a possible war with Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions and a "period of confrontation" with China over its currency, a top US lawmaker warned Saturday.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said his fellow conservatives, fresh from their historic elections romp this week, support "bold" action to deal with Iran.

If President Barack Obama "decides to be tough with Iran beyond sanctions, I think he is going to feel a lot of Republican support for the idea that we cannot let Iran develop a nuclear weapon," he told the Halifax International Security Forum.

"The last thing America wants is another military conflict, but the last thing the world needs is a nuclear-armed Iran... Containment is off the table."
The South Carolina Republican saw the United States going to war with the Islamic republic "not to just neutralize their nuclear program, but to sink their navy, destroy their air force and deliver a decisive blow to the Revolutionary Guard, in other words neuter that regime."
