How Close Are We To A Dictatorship?
By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine September 9, 2021
The more images we get from readers all across the country the bigger picture comes into focus, and allows us to see certain patterns that only time and comparisons can show, and what we are finding is quite disturbing for a number of different reasons.
A variety of stores in multiple states are seeing serious shortages on a cornucopia of products, but in many cases we see the same foods from coast to coast missing off the shelves, the selections are becoming more limited, entire rows with only front facing products and nothing behind them, and spiking prices.
Another thing an ANP reader has been keeping track of has been a huge contrast in online prices shown on the Walmart website, compared to the receipts when the readers physically went to the store, which were far lower, yet still rising.
We’ll start there since this is a new factor being noticed and it brings up the very reasonable question of whether the government, in conjunction with the private sector big businesses, will deliberately jack up prices online as they attempt to threaten to disallow the unvaccinated to physically shop indoors.
This has been suggested by CNN, and in France the courts had to stop the French President from banning unvaccinated citizens from shopping.
Since it is being proposed here by liberals in America, including the MSM, along with other countries like France and Australia already trying to banish the unvaccinated, it is reasonable to question the things we are noting as we write more pieces in this series.
As a side note: Although it has nothing to do with food, but does highlight how far liberals will go in order to try to force Americans to get vaccinated, the idea of refusing medical services to those unvaccinated is being pushed publicly on shows like the “View.”
A truly awful but revealing conversation happened Wednesday morning on ABC’s The View, where the nearly all-liberal panel argued hospitals should turn away sick patients who did not take the COVID-19 vaccine.
After playing a clip of one Florida doctor saying she had “drawn a line in the sand” against treating unvaccinated individuals in person, the panel then brought up the larger issue of whether unvaccinated patients should receive medical care to begin with. Host Whoopi Goldberg suggested all doctors faced this moral “dilemma:”
“So this is an ethical dilemma apparently a lot of health care workers are facing right now,” she asserted.
The point of the side note here is that people love to wave away concerns like those presented here, yet we are seeing more and more reports like the one above, which makes it crystal clear that there is no line these people will not cross, and once we accept that fact, it becomes easier to see that bigger picture….. and it is getting worse.
ONLINE PRICES JACKED UP
This specific point has been noted at Walmart, online versus offline shopping.
We reported in August that a reader noticed an 11% hike in prices for HORMEL Chunky Chicken Breast, from $1.44 each to $1.60, in just a three day period.
That same reader contacted us just a couple weeks later and the online prices that was listed as $1.60, was now listed at $6.59 per can.
Interestingly, as the readers also pointed out, when you click the product itself listed at $6.59, the prices is actually $1.82 as of now, yet at the online checkout, it still says $6.59.
Even at the $1.82, that is another .22 cent rise in a matter of weeks, even more than the hike before.
The one listed at $19.95, when clicked on, stays at $19.95.
The kicker here is that when the reader physically went to Walmart, the in person price was still $1.60 as his receipt below shows.
So, buying it online, even with in-store pickup and not delivery, is at least .22 cents higher than in-store shopping.
Now imagine you are unvaccinated and disallowed from shopping in person. You will either be paying far more for products (at Walmart for now)or you will have less to eat because the price increases become unaffordable.
Would the Biden regime, working with big corporations use food as a weapon to force their will upon Americans?
Anyone that doubts it has not been keeping track of the authoritarian control freaks in Washington DC, and their proposals.
As it stands, you can get the very same product from Amazon for $1.53 per can (12 cans for $18.41) which is still higher than last year, but cheaper than the Walmart prices…. for now at least.
It is easily within the realm of possibility that Walmart is the testing grounds for making it cost more to eat for the unvaccinated, especially if liberals get their way and ban those not vaxxed from shopping anywhere in person, including at supermarkets as Don Lemon suggested on CNN.
SHORTAGES – READER IMAGES
As always we would like to thank all those that have sent us in images from their local stores, from portions of shelves being depleted, to completely empty shelves or refrigerated/frozen sections.
We would ask readers to continue to send images when they can, because the more we see, the more in focus this bigger picture becomes, and ladies and gents, it is an ugly picture.
Links to specific products that we are seeing shortages of will be below the images, unless of course the prices are completely unreasonable to have them delivered.
We’ll start with an email recently received that stated “Hi Susan, I thought I would pass on some photos from our Cash N Carry in Vancouver WA. Inventory is even lower now than last year.”
Emphasis mine. A few quick points about these set of images.
First: According to the reader that sent the images, the food shortage issue is worse now than when we were in the midst of lockdowns and stores were even limiting the amount of product on certain items.
Second: Cereal, once again is in short supply, which we have shown in other images, from other states and different stores, previously.
Third and last point: We are seeing shortages different foods that haven’t previously been noted, such as sections that sell rice in bulk.
The cereal problem is going to get worse, not better, so here is the Amazon search page for cereals, and it isn’t clear how long Amazon will have an adequate supply for a reasonable price, so if you like your cereal, get it now before you can’t find or afford it later.
There is also a shortage of rice in bulk in those images.

Apparently spaghetti sauces are also a problem at that store, which means pasta is not far behind. I am not linking to bulk cans of sauce as we did the rice, because rice will stay good for far longer than an open can of spaghetti sauce.

The next image is from Pensacola Fl. Sam’s Club, and the note attached said:
Love your website – (know of you through Steve Quayle) – thank you for your hard work to keep us all informed.
Sharing because you called out to send proof of diminishing availability of food.
Although not all shelves were empty at this Pensacola Fl. Sam’s Club, it was obvious to anyone with eyes to see that it was ‘slimmer pickens’ than usual … This photo of the fresh meal/food section was way to obvious to pass up, however:
The next image shows a depleted canned soup aisle and the reader says it has been that way for months.
The message with the image read:
Hey Susan and Stefan ! Attached is another Dollar General Photo that I took today in Wilmington NC. You may use the photo. Soup section.. Unbelievable ! This section has looked this way for over 4 months…
Interestingly another reader emails a link to an article by Reuters announcing upcoming price increases for Campbell’s products.
Because they didn’t name all the products they will be hiking prices on, here is a link to a variety of Campbell products.
Get them now before the prices become unreasonable.
The next image is concerning because in previous pieces, readers have sent other images showing a shortage of milk and eggs, so this one from a different state, and a different store, indicates a specific issue with dairy.
The note with the image states:
Love your page ! Keep up the good work. Attached is a photo that I took in Wilmington North Carolina. There were plenty of workers “stocking” but the employees told me directly “the truck with milk and eggs is not going to arrive for another week”. This is from a Dollar General store. You have my permission to use it…

That is it for the most recent images sent to ANP by our awesome readers across the nation and once again… a huge thank you for taking the time and effort to take the pictures, upload them and send them on over to us,
The only reason we are able to keep track of how much worse things are getting, specific food items, price increases and such, is because of our readers, between the first hand accounts, the emails with links to food articles, and the images.
Between the price hikes, past and upcoming, and the continued shortages of products as well as the commonality in some items from state to state and multiple stores, topped off with seeing empty shelves on products we haven’t been seeing past shortages on, tells us we need to keep our eyes on this issue.
The new issue regarding online pricing, even for store pickup (so no delivery charges) being higher than shopping in person, is disturbing when we consider how hard liberals here in America, including the Biden regime and liberal state leaders are trying to ostracize those that choose not to be vaccinated.
It is most definitely within the realm of possibility, and probability, that like other countries, they will be using food as a weapon against us in order to force their will upon us. (Click to Source)
