Breastfeeding and What if A Mother Can Not?

Breastfeeding is best. We do know this. Best for health; best for baby’s brain.
But what if a mother can not breastfeed for some real reason? Back in Spring 2022, remember, we had a baby formula crisis. We seem to have recurrent “crisis” around food — let’s hold that idea. Remember, you couldn’t get that formula. But… did you ever want it? Have you read what is in commercial formula? Is there a better substitute? A professional lactation specialists is not permitted to tell you, but … I found a friend.

So, a great friend, wonderful mother, and inspiring woman let us know about her situation and how she makes formula. Not surprisingly, she got some information from the Weston-Price Foundation.

Weston-Price Foundation recommends healthier food. Have you heard all the claims that commercial food is being tainted or will be tainted with dangerous mRNA or bugs? Someone asked Robert Barnes, Constitutional Lawyer extraordinaire how it is that elites would taint food, since wouldn’t they kill themselves thereby. Barnes averred that elites tend not to eat commercial food. I have heard that King Charles has long invested in organic gardens on his property and that garden supplies his tables. So, Barnes’ observation on that point may be correct, and this questioner’s assumption might fail. At any rate, I and GSB have long held that it is best to eat food like God made it. It is our faith; and it has worked for us.

If you are not at the breastfedding stage, you may wish to check into the extent to which cow or goat or sheep milk is good for your child. I think you may be surprised to find out that while necessary measures in commercial process may reduce nutrition. Thus, raw milk, if you can get it, from a trust source, might be the best option. Check out our handout, which is indebted to the Weston-Price Foundation. See the sidebar to the right.

Doc Pete Chambers, who coordinated relief to West Texas ranchers, suggested that pattern analysis may indicate that intentional targeting of food production may have been the cause of the blaze. › v4gnoxx-texas-fire-situation-report-with-doc-pete-chambers-live-from-tx.html

Dade City poultry farm fire likely killed 250,000 chickens, officials say
DADE CITY, Fla. – Fire crews in Pasco County said a massive fire likely killed as many as 250,000 chickens at a Dade City chicken farm after flames tore through three barns with thousands of chickens inside. Farmhands living at Cal-Maine Foods in Dade City called 911 to report the growing fire. When The Amos Miller case is paragimatic of the food freedom concern. Check out legal documents, and actual truth, on the 1776 Law Center site. Most conventional news outlets are predictably being stenographers for the flagrant over-reach of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. There does seem to be a coordinated attack on the Amish in general. Imagine: a movie about Amish as the mob. Right. They are pacificists. They don’t even understand the concept of lying. So, guess who is lying… again.

Get right with God… no way to argue we are not in the end times when this sort of thing going on: bioweapons mandated and advertised by the government who also censor critics. Then, not just conservative Christians in politics (who for instance pray outside of abortion clinic they see as baby killing factories) but now… Amish… for selling foods entirely lawfully. This does match the woes in the book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

The Case of Amos Miller and Food Safety for the Prevention of Learning Disabilities


I think our band of lionesses, interested in overcoming learning problems will be vitally interested in the case of Amos Miller, Amish farmer, who is being harassed, prosecuted and downright persecuted for being a good Amish farmer. After being harassed by the FDA fro decades, he prevailed. Now the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has gone beyond their legal mandate, lied to the court, seized property, dictated destruction of food that even their own tests showed was perfect. They would not let the food, some of which had already been purchased, even be sold to pigs. They even went so far as to ration food to the Miller family they that they themselves had grown.

Never over 20 years has anyone complained or gotten sick from Amos Miller’s food. Not one. He runs a club, and not a retail operation; so everyone knows how he farms. Indeed,that is why they buy from him. In court last week, families testified under penalty of perjury that they and their children needed this food for their health, in on at least one case, their very life. One family said that their child was autistic and after depending upon the natural Amish food, he was no longer autistic. They testified that even in the interim during the seizure of the food during the investigation and court proceedings, their life and health was at risk. They pleaded with the judge to permit their children this food. The prosecution thought he had them, when he questioned who paid for their trip. He had. Defense attorney has already drastically reduced his fee; his firm is working on donations.


The Dept. of Agriculture of Pennsylvania had to lie to the court to be able to start this mess. They continue to lie.To the court. To the media. Who doesn’t even check the other side, but merely publishes the lies of the government. Indeed, whent hey lie so egregiously on the stand, the Amish just couldn’t process it. They are not used to lying in their society. However, the witnesses for the Dept of Ag lied so egregiously that the Prosecutor had to several times redirect.

It was kind of like this: “It is not like you want to be in charge of all food that everyone everywhere eats, is it? Oh yes!”

The First Amendment, guaranteeing the right to freedom of religion has been abridged. The fourth Amendment, protecting warrantless and unreasonable searches has been violated. A number of other rights in the 10 Amendment have been violated.  The State Constitution of PA has been violated. Due process has been violated.

The Court likes privacy (which is a violation.) The Bailiff, with guns, told even reporters that if they took notes in the courtroom, they would be imprisoned.


Media passes on the idea that Amos Miller is just resisting getting a permit. This is a misunderstanding at best. You know how it goes: when a big bunch of lies is discredited, the most likely more reasonable sounding one is picked for a last stand.  In the first place, anything that is permitted is restricted by law; this is a dimunition of freedom. Secondly under PA law, a permit for selling raw milk includes the promise that sales of other raw milk products like raw milk cheese will not be sold. Thus, such a permit would drastically reduce the Miller business. However, given that Miller is not a retail operation, then permitting is not required. Further, labeling laws do not apply.

It is not clear how the case will be decided. According to Mr. Barnes, it appeared to him that the judge did care about the (only 4 he permitted) children;s health, the past behavior of the court is to side unthinkingly with government actors.  Not just these children’s lives and learning ability will be at risk. This case will set a precedent against food freedom, religious freedom, and the well-being of our country in general. The FDA is watching. They pick the perfect, literally, case.

Weston Price Foundation (about better nutrition)


Oops! I just heard Mr. Barnes say that being a private club is not a defense. What? At any rate, I am sure I did hear him say previously that Amos Miller’s operation is NOT a retail operation. So, this detail I do not fully understand, but given the extent to which I have listened to Mr. Barnes, his evident high reputation, and obvious legal credentials — this must be the way it is.



First Things that a Mama Lioness Does

Last Time: Engage as  Mama Bear

Last time we talked a little bit about being a mama bear – holding other people accountable. Today, I am going to talk about my perspective that arises from 2 generations of failure, even with prodigious ability, to get government school officials to follow the law. I also recognize the work of Katy Marshall (Texas Scorecard) and her Exposed podcast, that discusses the dark side of Texas public schools. Trouble is, Texas is not somehow different than any other state. Maybe it is much better! They may have larger school districts — or not. They may have more conservative politicians – or not. They may have citizen who are more willing to speak out because they think the system is more conservative — probably.

Rabbit Trail: Isn’t it Odd?

Isn’t it odd, actually, how all our local school districts, in whatever state seem to be facing the same very strange problem of porn in school at the same time. Isn’t strange how, after FBI fingerprints being put in as a precaution back in 2007, and public outing of sex offenders’ locations online, that we still have so much sexual abuse of children? Isn’t it passing strange that when parents come to school board meetings, that across the country, they are treated as if they were criminal offender? And not just in one location or another.   Okay, but moving on.

Exposed : Dark Side of What is Going on in Government Schools

It happens that recent episodes  of Exposed have focused on alleged abuse in Prosper ISD. What needs to be understood in context is that Prosper is an reasonably affluent part of Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, fast growing, and not unusual. Some small towns might suffer less, but they are under the same ultimate management. Similarly, one thinks of Texas as a “red” state — but we have already discussed the false dichotomy of thinking that that means that governance is more conservative or just. Go back about 3 episodes for that.

Season 6 Episode 3 – The Spreading Rot


This time on Overcoming Learning Problems, I will share with you my maybe surprising conclusions about what is more important for a mother to do today. More conservative and more radically change oriented. Think Susanna Wesley! Change the world. And you will find it jolly well matches your personality, too, I imagine. You will be, should be surprised that I think so, but I do. My reflections today, after more fights with school officials than I wish to recall.


Knowing this, I expect you will find a deeper appreciation of what we are doing here at GSB: Overcoming Learning Problems. Our perspective will save your child from the abuse and academic degradation that you WILL find in government schools. Our perspective might save you the $87,000 one of our interviewees say that they charge families. It should save most home-schoolers a lot of grief, anxiety, and bewilderment. What I put out here, for free, is very valuable. Please make use of it, get more, and tell your friends.
