Raw Food Raid: Armed Agents Bust Raw Milk & Cheese Sellers

God DAMN I love freedom.

    Infowars -

    Assault on independent health accelerates as retailers charged with conspiracy, ‘mislabeling cheese’

    UPDATE #2 (4:30 PM CST): A spokesperson for the Weston A. Price Foundation has learned that authorities are charging Victoria Bloch with conspiracy under California Penal Code Section 182a. Sharon Palmer is reportedly also being charged with conspiracy and a charge related to ‘mislabeling cheese.’ Similar charges are also believed to be pending for Stewart. Natural News reports that an LAPD squad car was also involved in the raid.

    UPDATE: We have learned that in addition to James Stewart, two other people have been arrested in this raid and are being charged with conspiracy to sell unpasteurized raw milk products. Sharon Palmer of Healthy Family Farms is currently in jail, with bond set at $120,000. Palmer was featured in the documentary Farmageddon. Victoria Bloch, an L.A. county liaison for the Weston A. Price Foundation has also been arrested.

    Activists are planning a protest tomorrow morning outside the L.A. county courthouse (details pending) to send a strong message that we have a right to healthy, natural foods. Help rally people to this cause, tell people about this outrageous and backwards persecution and fight for our natural rights. Check back at and Natural for further updates.

Read all of it.

From Karen DeCoster at LRC:

    One of the detainees is Sharon Palmer of Healthy Family Farms, a woman who "terrorizes" the population by selling whole, fresh, farm products to buyers who willingly transact for her fresh, non-indusrial supply foods. Oh, and yes, if you look at the cell phone video on Huffington Post, the vandals in black were wearing full-armor monkey suits. One can get severely injured, you know, handcuffing organic shopkeepers and dumping fresh food products. This craves the simple question, again: When, folks, will Americans step up and resist?

    You may or may not know that Rawesome was raided once already by the Feds - because they were said to not have the "proper permits." Thanks to the _many_ people who sent this FYI to me, including one of my favorite Ron Paul staffers. Remember that Ron Paul is one of the few politicians who dares to address this issue head on.
