Food Freedom Fight: This is My Body–Michael Schmidt Prepared to Suffer and Calls for Peaceful Resistance


The crescendo of tonight’s letter from North American food freedom leader and statesman Michael Schmidt, weary from three years of legal entanglement over sharing and trading raw milk, is this:

Michael Schmidt-- Biodynamic Farm and Dairy Pioneer/Teacher Faces More Persecution and Judgement January 21

“I am prepared to go all the way, I am prepared to sacrifice, I am prepared to suffer the consequences. I will never back down. We together have gone too far to give up now.

Lets join hands in peace and move forward by resisting peacefully those, who disregard what is all sacred to us, OUR BODY”


My dear cow share and farm share owners.

Dear Friends of Food Freedom

Dear Friends and supporters of this battle of raw milk.

Dear Government officials

How silly it seems to have to fight for this right,to consume food we feel and know is right and healthy for us.

However, as silly it seems, as dangerous in fact is its implication, where we are heading: Total control of our food system established through the politics of fear and deceit.

At the beginning of this battle I was very much focused on the issue, by simply assuming that those, trying to control our well being, do not have enough information and without bad intention believe, that they in fact protect us from ourselves. How wrong was I.

In the last 3 years I had so many encounters with people “in power” and people, who feel increasingly threatened by the ever growing loss of food freedom. I know we are intentionally being prevented to maintain and improve our health through healthy food.

During my travels to the United States, where I have been asked many times to speak, the food freedom movement is gaining dramatically ground. I feel encouraged and saddened, that we seem to be heading into another phase of unnecessary confrontation.

So be it. All we demand, is the respect for our rights as spelled out in our Constitution and our Bill of Rights. We do not ask for these rights to be returned to us, we ask those in power to respect and upheld our rights, which in the first place we never intended to give away.

This is OUR BODY and WE decide what we put into our body.

On January 21.2010 the Court will come down with a decision. Do not hold your breath. The Court will make a decision, which can go either way. It is important to realize prior to that ruling:

-that nobody can change our powerful determination,

-that we HAVE the right to consume what we know is best for us and

-that WE have the responsibility for OUR BODY and NOT the Government.

Friends this Year will be a good year: A year to remember for the courage of all of us, to rise up and regain, what we thought we had lost but never gave up:

OUR FREEDOM to make informed decisions, OUR FREEDOM as a right bestowed on us by our Creator.

I am prepared to go all the way, I am prepared to sacrifice, I am prepared to suffer the consequences. I will never back down. We together have gone too far to give up now.

Lets join hands in peace and move forward by resisting peacefully those, who disregard what is all sacred to us, OUR BODY

Blessings for a good 2010

Michael Schmidt.

  1. Isn’t it ironic that the FDA and USDA goes to such lengths to protect us?:

    (NaturalNews) If you’re in the beef business, what do you do with all the extra cow parts and trimmings that have traditionally been sold off for use in pet food? You scrape them together into a pink mass, inject them with a chemical to kill the e.coli, and sell them to fast food restaurants to make into hamburgers.

    That’s what’s been happening all across the USA with beef sold to McDonald’s, Burger King, school lunches and other fast food restaurants, according to a New York Times article. The beef is injected with ammonia, a chemical commonly used in glass cleaning and window cleaning products.

    This is all fine with the USDA, which endorses the procedure as a way to make the hamburger beef “safe” enough to eat. Ammonia kills e.coli, you see, and the USDA doesn’t seem to be concerned with the fact that people are eating ammonia in their hamburgers.

    This ammonia-injected beef comes from a company called Beef Products, Inc. As NYT reports, the federal school lunch program used a whopping 5.5 million pounds of ammonia-injected beef trimmings from this company in 2008. This company reportedly developed the idea of using ammonia to sterilize beef before selling it for human consumption.

    Aside from the fact that there’s ammonia in the hamburger meat, there’s another problem with this company’s products: The ammonia doesn’t always kill the pathogens. Both e.coli and salmonella have been found contaminating the cow-derived products sold by this company.

    This came as a shock to the USDA, which had actually exempted the company’s products from pathogen testing and product recalls. Why was it exempted? Because the ammonia injection process was deemed so effective that the meat products were thought to be safe beyond any question.

    What else is in there?
    As the NYT reports, “The company says its processed beef, a mashlike substance frozen into blocks or chips, is used in a majority of the hamburger sold nationwide. But it has remained little known outside industry and government circles. Federal officials agreed to the company’s request that the ammonia be classified as a ‘processing agent’ and not an ingredient that would be listed on labels.”

    Fascinating. So you can inject a beef product with a chemical found in glass cleaning products and simply call it a “processing agent” — with the full permission and approval of the USDA, no less! Does anyone doubt any longer how deeply embedded the USDA is with the beef industry?

    Apparently, this practice of injecting fast food beef with ammonia has been a well-kept secret for years. I never knew this was going on, and this news appears to be new information to virtually everyone. The real shocker is that “a majority” of fast food restaurants use this ammonia-injected cow-derived product in their hamburger meat. It sort of makes you wonder: What else is in there that we don’t know about?

    “School lunch officials and other customers complained about the taste and smell of the beef,” says the NYT. No wonder. It’s been pumped full of chemicals.

    There are already a thousand reasons not to eat fast food. Make this reason number 1,001. Ammonia. It’s not supposed to be there.

    You can get the same effect by opening a can of dog food made with beef byproducts, spraying it with ammonia, and swallowing it. That is essentially what you’re eating when you order a fast food burger.

  2. Michael – I will be praying every day from now until the court date and after for you and for a message to be sent to the controllers and oppressors! I prayed for a miracle for Michael Badnarik – it hapened – the LORD heard my prayers!
    God’s richest blessings to you. A great story to read about someone going to jail for doing nothing wrong is in the book of Genesis – they story of Joseph. Read the book of Genesis and pay attention to Joseph’s story! May it encourage you.

  3. Is there any earthly thing we can do, send faxes, email, call and who???

  4. Growing up and spending the summer on dairy farms and picking cherries with legal immigrants I noticed one trait. The dairy farmer for breakfast we had 3 or 4 fresh eggs bacon home made bread and there it was a half gallon clear bottle of milk with the cream on top. A cup of coffee and 3 or four glasses of milk.
    Now to think about it the dairy farmers lived to be a healthy 92 years old and no heart attacks.All that good tasting butter and milk high in cholesterol,for the sake of storage the small farmer has been tossed and now the milk you buy taste like water and the large farms have left the majority with no choice of a healthier living

  5. This is a prototype only for Canada with a North American . . . cannot say more. Possible

  6. The governement is not here to protect us!!! They are clearly our enemy. I’m on it in fervent prayer!

  7. Saw the prototype and I was thinking of the same type of format myself.

    Unless the courts are to declare that private ownership of animals is illegal Michael will prevail this month. As stated in the article:”THIS IS ABOUT OUR FREEDOM” and OUR RIGHTS to personal property.

  8. Regardless of the outcome it the legislators that we need to go after and push for change. They are the one who write the laws. They are the ones who can tell the authorities to lay off. Unless the judges can somehow be convinced that the law is unconstitutional.

    Incidentally ammonia is simply nitrogen and hydrogen, and very volatile – but only a step away from the ammonium ion that is one way that nitrogen gets into plants. It’s not like it’s some toxic heavy metal like lead or mercury. The problem is that it’s just a cover-up for poor procedures in the raising and processing of meat.


    For the past 15 years the population
    Has been overrun with legislation
    Now we have mass brain sedation
    By mandatory fluoridation
    What’s your next step in your plan for mankind
    What else do you give us you don’t want us to find
    In your disguised , gradual genocide
    It is time to stand up as a people unite
    To support life and claim our birthright
    We must question ALL products on offer to us
    Grow food in our soil, not kill the grass
    Feed real food to our children instead of plastic
    Not let legal toxins turn our bodies to acid
    The earths future has a right to be
    Self sustainable, pure and free
    Its our responsibility to discern and sustain
    So souls can learn in bodies tomorrow again
    We can’t have a functional society
    Without high levels of courtesy
    We must abide by universal law
    All other laws will lead to war
    Accountable we’ll be held at the end of the day
    For the flowers we wilted for pleasure and play
    It’s time to turn our planet into a garden
    To refuse Big Brother as our prison warden
    Self empowerment through substance for every man
    So mankind can rise to peace and freedom again
    To raise our collective consciousness
    It’s our eternal inheritance
    For what it’s worth
    As we all walk this earth
    And that really does mean us all
    The answer is clear on this fundamental decision
    If we want a planet we must all listen
    The voice of our mother screams beneath our feet
    No longer can we afford to support Multi National Greed
    We don’t have the right to poison the planet
    In the name of progress and material asset
    Or not one can live here any more
    Our children’s screams silenced by Big Brothers war
    Refuse to accept a destructive society
    And demand freedom with equal responsibility !
    This is a possible goal and we must do what has to be done !
