Editor’s Note: The following shocking article was published on NaturalNews.com on August 25, 2011 and is reprinted here in edited version with permission of the author, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and NaturalNews Editor. It confirms what we have long suspected, that raw milk is the number one target of the food police at the FDA. Nevertheless, their KGB-style tactics are not strong enough to stop the burgeoning force of consumer demand for healthy, delicious raw milk and a rising sense of outrage against FDA tactics. Be sure to share this information with your elected representatives and demand an end to funding for anti-raw milk programs.
After weeks of investigation, NaturalNews can now reveal that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is waging a clandestine war on raw milk dairy farmers through a network of government spies who are coached on infiltration and social engineering techniques. Resembling the Stasi East German police or KGB of the former Soviet Union, these undercover FDA agents meet each month for a “spying roundtable” phone conference called the Raw Milk Call during which techniques of infiltration are openly discussed and encouraged.
NaturalNews can now reveal that the majority of these undercover FDA agents are women, who are more easily able to infiltrate the raw dairy community with techniques of social engineering (see below).
The existence of this elaborate spying operation has been confirmed by NaturalNews through three different sources, all of which demanded anonymity as they fear being targeted by the FDA with armed raids, false arrest and destruction of their property, as we recently witnessed with the Rawesome Foods raid. One source told NaturalNews they feared the FDA would stage a Waco-style siege of their farm and invent some justification to assault their farmhouse and shoot them and their family. Yes, this is how much freedom has been lost in America today, where farmers are afraid to speak out for fear they might be killed. And yet, it’s not paranoia; they have legitimate reason to fear that their own government is targeting them for termination.
FDA uses KGB-style techniques to infiltrate raw dairy networks
Through these sources, NaturalNews has learned the FDA coaches its network of spies to engage in KGB-style social engineering techniques in order to win the trust of the very people it then targets for armed raids and arrest. Those techniques include:
- FDA agents visiting local farmers markets and gathering names of possible raw milk providers to be targeted.
- FDA agents calling those targets and trying to convince them to sell raw dairy products by telling “sob stories” of how they have a baby that can’t breastfeed, and they need raw goat’s milk to keep the baby alive. (This is why most undercover FDA agents are women—they make more convincing social engineers when it comes to issues like finding goat’s milk to feed babies.)
- FDA agents engage in name-dropping of others in the raw dairy community in order to imply trust. In California, for example, they might say, “I spoke with Mark McAfee at Organic Pastures, and he told me to talk to you.” This technique impresses the target, thinking they have been recommended by a big name in the raw dairy industry. In reality, the whole story is fiction and is used by FDA spies to try to ensnare other raw dairy producers.
- FDA is building a secret government database of raw dairy customers. This is accomplished by training its spies and agents to demand the confiscation of customer lists from raw dairy farmers. Such lists are then delivered to FDA headquarters in Washington D.C. where they are added to a growing database of names, email addresses and sometimes even home addresses. It is not known what the FDA ultimately plans to do with this list.
- FDA pays huge sums of cash each month to various state agriculture departments, then sends top-level FDA infiltration agents to those states to train state-level agents in these same clandestine techniques. As one example, NaturalNews has learned the FDA currently pays the Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture more than eighty thousand dollars a month for it to spend on these raw dairy spying and infiltration schemes. Shortly after the program was launched, FDA flew several of its top agents to Wisconsin to walk the local farmers markets with spies-intraining agents, teaching them spying and infiltration techniques in what was essentially a “raw milk spy camp.”
- FDA agents have been well trained and schooled on running elaborate entrapment schemes which are operated with the sole purpose of persuading small, local raw dairy farmers to break the law or violate FDA regulations so that the FDA can justify an armed raid on their farm operation.
- Many millions of dollars (NaturalNews could not get accurate numbers on the total expenditures) are being spent by the FDA on these spying and infiltration programs. None of these programs are reported to Congress. None are reported to the press. These are entirely “dark operations” conducted behind the scenes, with no official announcements, and with no desire to attract publicity of any kind. They are, essentially, secret wars being conducted against America’s farmers, with no congressional approval whatsoever.
- NaturalNews was told that FDA head Margaret Hamburg is not only authorizing these secret spying operations, but that she took a personal role in structuring the operations so that they would not be made public. Natural News has not yet been able to confirm this allegation, since obviously the FDA outright refuses to return our phone calls, insisting on operating entirely in secret.
- As part of its secret spying and social engineering effort, the FDA also runs a national farmer intimidation program where FDA agents dressed in what look like FBI or “agency” uniforms just show up at farmers’ homes and engage in verbal intimidation in order to dissuade farmers from producing or marketing raw dairy products. This is done without a warrant and completely outside the law. Farmers are routinely told that if they talk about this, they will be targeted with armed raids.
- One farmer was told, “If you go public with this, we will come back and have your entire herd destroyed by claiming your cows are infected with mad cow disease.” This is a classic secret police-style intimidation technique, and it explains why so few raw dairy farmers have been willing to step forward and go public with their stories. One sheep farmer was already targeted and had his entire flock of sheep murdered by the FDA working in conspiracy with state agriculture officials, under the false pretense that the sheep were infected. This particular instance is covered in the film Farmageddon, at www.FarmageddonMovie.com
- FDA officials have stated, during these monthly “Raw Milk Calls,” that their goal is the complete destruction of the raw dairy industry in the United States, and that achieving this goal was a top priority of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
- FDA has also stated that it plans to use the increased funding provided to it under the Food Safety Modernization Act to expand its secret spying and infiltration network and train even more spies to entrap and intimidate raw dairy farmers.
- Many of the people now attempting to join raw milk buying clubs and meet-up groups are actually undercover FDA agents who are gathering names, emails, addresses and other “evidence” to be used to justify future armed FDA raids. National lists are being drawn up and prioritized to create “hit lists” of farms to raid under the Food Safety Modernization Act.
- Salaries and bonuses of clandestine FDA employees are raised based on the “performance” of how many raw dairy operations are shut down, how many customer names are confiscated, successful raw milk “buys” and other key milestones of oppression and tyranny that are set by the FDA. In this way, FDA agents are financially rewarded based on the number of American farmers they crush.
The FDA’s secret war reveals how the U.S. government is headed toward total police state tyranny
That this situation exists in the United States today is a disturbing and powerful commentary on the runaway power of regulatory agencies, which have essentially built their own lawless kingdoms of power, subject to no law and no checks or balances.
The FDA, in particular, simply writes its own law without any congressional approval whatsoever. It wages its own secret wars, runs its own spy network and is essentially rising up to become its own secret police organization (or terrorist group). None of this has ever been approved by Congress. The head of the FDA is not elected by the voters. And President Obama is either unaware that all this is going on or refuses to do anything about it. (President Bush did nothing about it, either.)
The FDA, notably, far from protecting Americans from dangerous foods and drugs, now sees the people as the enemy and spends an inordinate amount of its time and money waging secret spying campaigns and plotting armed raids against innocents. If this rise to power continues, the FDA will effectively become the KGB of agriculture, eventually wielding its own firearms and running terror-style hit-and-run assaults on people engaged in small-scale organic farming, gardening or raw dairy production. This is, essentially, all-out war against the American people, and it’s all being funded by your taxpayer dollars and carried out with the full tolerance of the President himself.
President Obama could put a stop to this if he wanted to. The FDA could be reeled in and de-funded. It could be split into two separate agencies: Foods, and then Drugs as a separate agency. Congress could pass a “food freedom rights” law that guarantees the protection of farmers (of course, the FDA would probably just ignore it, as the agency respects absolutely no law whatsoever).
Help us end this insanity by leaking intelligence
NaturalNews has already received information hinting that even many agents within the FDA are fed up with the agency’s illegal war on farmers. If you work for the FDA, or with the FDA, or have participated in FDA raids in any way, and if you have intelligence that needs to be made public to help end this secret war, NaturalNews will protect your anonymity, just as it has protected the other sources who provided intelligence for this story.
You may submit tips to us at: naturalnews.com/newstips/NewsTips.asp
Our goal is to see the FDA’s war exposed, to see Congress take action to halt the FDA’s actions, and to see the rights of farmers protected under law.
Obviously, do not submit tips to us from your work computer, because that can be tracked. Use an internet cafe so that your IP address cannot be tracked by anyone. Do NOT include your real name, and if you give us an email address, make sure it is an anonymous email that would not link back to your actual name or work location. Remember: the government is also tracking and reading your emails, so take all necessary steps to protect your privacy and safety. We are, after all, dealing with a terrorist organization in the FDA. The FDA may stop at nothing to protect its power and continue waging its war on American farmers.
NaturalNews is actively gathering and distributing intelligence on this situation, publicizing the truth that the FDA wants to keep secret—that it is waging a clandestine, illegal war against America’s farmers, using Stasistyle, or KGB -inspired secret police tactics combined with the threat of violence to crush resistance. This is a campaign of terrorism being waged against innocent farmers in America, and it is a sign of a government out of control, a government which, in many ways, has become an enemy of the People and an enemy of freedom.
The FDA Wants MORE Power
And the FDA is just getting warmed up. Once the new funding from the Food Safety Modernization Act kicks in, this agency promises to unleash an army of new agents to sweep across the countryside, detaining gardeners and small farmers, demanding “show me your papers!” Meanwhile, its agents will be terrorizing, intimidating and threatening everyone except the big agriculture giants which are always exempt from government scrutiny (even though they are the ones causing all the food safety problems in the first place).
If the FDA is not stopped, it is positioned to rise up as the most dangerous government-run terrorist organization America has ever seen. Already responsible for the death of at least one hundred thousand Americans each year who die from taking FDA-approved medications, this agency is now hell bent on destroying an entire food-producing industry while exploiting the most insidious tactics of intimidation and oppression that have ever been used throughout the world’s most criminal regimes: Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler and others.
What we need to see right now is the Dept. of Justice conducting an armed raid on the FDA, arresting all the top FDA officials and charging them with criminal conspiracy to deprive American farmers of their rights.

Mike Adams, the “Health Ranger,” grew up using prescribed pharmaceuticals, trusting doctors, and believing what the FDA reported was safe and in the best interests of the country. All that would change when Mike was faced with his own personal health emergency, and the pillars of medicine he once trusted came crumbling down before him. At the age of 30, he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and as a high-powered software executive, he experienced extreme levels of stress, depression, and chronic back pain. Searching for answers to his health woes, Mike devoured thousands of books on nutrition, pharmaceutical drugs, wellness programs, and the politics of food. Mike has now made it his life mission to share the most remarkable discovery he made on his quest: the vast majority of all diseases can be easily prevented and even cured without drugs or surgery. And that’s exactly what Mike did. He cured himself of diabetes in a matter of months and transformed himself into the picture of perfect health in mind, body, and spirit.
