MISINFORMATION WATCH: Baby Formula and Biden’s Misinformation Blame Game

Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, especially that which is deliberately intended to deceive.

Disinformation is a subset of propaganda and is defined as false information that is spread deliberately to deceive people.

Malinformation or malicious information is having or showing a desire to cause harm to someone; given to, marked by, or arising from malice or malicious gossip.

In this article to expose mis, dis and malinformation we look at baby formula and Biden’s blame game campaign. 

As JFK said,

The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.

There are a number of articles, videos and other sources that focus on food shortages that include the lack of baby formula on grocery store shelves.

It this video the White House press secretary blames mothers and parents for hoarding baby formula:

In the below video Tucker Carlson explains that it is the government that is the largest buyer of baby formula since establishment of the Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) in 1974.

Watch Tucker Carlson’s video explaining what really has happened and why.

The WIC target population is low-income, nutritionally at risk including:

  • Pregnant women (through pregnancy and up to 6 weeks after birth or after pregnancy ends).
  • Breastfeeding women (up to infant’s 1st birthday)
  • Nonbreastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months after the birth of an infant or after pregnancy ends)
  • Infants (up to 1st birthday).
  • Children up to their 5th birthday.

WIC serves 53 percent of all infants born in the United States.

The Florida Department of Health’s WIC Nutrition website for Sarasota County states:

Facts about WIC

Did you know these things about the Sarasota County WIC Program?

  • WIC services are available on a walk-in basis Monday through Thursday.
  • Appointments are available for those who need them.
  • A family of 4 earning $3,631 or less per month meets WIC income requirements.
  • Women are not required to show proof of pregnancy to receive WIC benefits.
  • Women who have had pregnancy losses [a miscarriage] are still eligible to receive WIC benefits for up to 6 months after delivery.
  • Breastfeeding Peer Counselors are available to provide breastfeeding support to WIC clients.
  • WIC has hospital-grade electric breast pumps that can be loaned to WIC mothers who have infants in the NICU. We also have single-user electric breast pumps we can give to full-time working mothers or students who are fully breastfeeding rather than receiving formula from WIC. Breast pumps are issued only during regular walk-in hours or by scheduled appointment.
  • WIC helps families buy fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods.
  • The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is an equal-opportunity provider and employer.

The vast majority of baby formula purchased by WIC is from a Michigan based company, Abbott Nutrition which produces the Similac brand. Recently Abbott Nutrition’s Sturgis, Michigan plant was shut down by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA shut down the plant in March of 2022 after federal safety inspectors found Abbott “failed to maintain sanitary conditions and procedures at the facility.”

The Biden administration knew about this shutdown but put out mis, dis and malinformation to the people by blaming the shortage on mothers and parents. When you have 53% of low income parents with vouchers seeking baby formula in super markets it is a key factor in the shortages we are seeing today.

Note that Biden’s White House warned in February of 2022 of “baby formula shortages” and that a team was working on it.

In October, 2021 Biden addressed the supply chain problem, which is ongoing.

Supply chain problem, cost of food escalating and now a shortage baby formula all linked to the federal government. These problems are all inextricably connected and point to bad economic policies.

The Bottom Line

American families, especially poor families, are not first in line to get baby formula. They are actually third in line behind illegal aliens and Ukrainians.

Finally, here is Biden blaming crippling inflation rate on ‘MAGA King’ Donald Trump.

Perhaps someone needs to tell Biden, his administration and the Democrat Party that Donald J. Trump is no longer the president? Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is.

The Department of Homeland Security’s website states that when Americans see something they must say something. It is the duty of every American citizen to report instances of mis, dis and malinformation to the Disinformation Governance Board for appropriate action. Even if this bad information is being passed along by those holding the highest office in the land.

    I saw an old fool recently on television. He was trying to make excuses for our poor economy. It seems that he has a number of water-carriers who also make excuses.
