In a time when California faces an historic drought, the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has uncovered that state officials allowed oil and gas companies to pump billions of gallons of waste water into protected aquifers. Investigative Reporter Stephen Stock reports in a story that aired on November 14, 2014.

State officials allowed oil and gas companies to pump nearly three billion gallons of waste water into underground aquifers that could have been used for drinking water or irrigation.

Those aquifers are supposed to be off-limits to that kind of activity, protected by the EPA.

“It’s inexcusable,” said Hollin Kretzmann, at the Center for Biological Diversity in San Francisco. “At (a) time when California is experiencing one of the worst droughts in history, we’re allowing oil companies to contaminate what could otherwise be very useful ground water resources for irrigation and for drinking. It’s possible these aquifers are now contaminated irreparably.”

California’s Department of Conservation’s Chief Deputy Director, Jason Marshall, told NBC Bay Area, “In multiple different places of the permitting process an error could have been made.”

“There have been past issues where permits were issued to operators that they shouldn’t be injecting into those zones and so we’re fixing that,” Marshall added.

In “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing operations, oil and gas companies use massive amounts of water to force the release of underground fossil fuels. The practice produces large amounts of waste water that must then be disposed of. More

The substance was found in grey shag that grows on horse dung.

By Rebekah Marcarelli

Researchers discovered a new agent in horse dung-grown fungi that could be used as an antibiotic.

The protein, dubbed cospin, has the same bacteria-killing effect as antibiotics, but belong to a different biochemical class, ETH Zurich reported. The potential antibiotic substitute was found in the mushroom cap of the Coprinopsis cinerea, which grows in horse dung. More

THE NEW WORLD FOOD ORDER

Create seeds which are genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and patent them. Then convince farmers about their “safety” but also include the “greater harvest and more profit“ angle, even if some of it is untrue. But here is the rest of the story.

136078972_40b7e8eb82_m1There is an increasing demand for food worldwide, but presently there is a massive agenda by UC Davis, the EU and the UK to partner with biotech corporations in order to monopolize the food supply through unsafe patented seeds while replacing older hybrid and heirloom seeds that have been around for decades. And what happens if
corporations control the food supply with certain seeds that will only produce one plant and the seed from that plant will never produce another seed? The commercial or hobby farmer will either have to repurchase more seeds from those same suppliers again or they could purchase the older reproducing seeds as long as they are available.

But what if the good seeds which are non-GMO’s are banned by governments? Well, it is on the drawing board.

Big Agri, paired with the world ruling governments, are likened to oligarchies such as the European Union, and are already trying to make it illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or trees that has not been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the “EU Plant Variety Agency.” Yes, this is an outrageous agenda and the new law, if passed, basically puts the government in charge of all plants and seeds in Europe, and prevents home gardeners from growing their own plants from non-regulated seeds.” And if growers did break the rules, they will be considered criminals.

Center for Food Safety backs up concerns about 2,4-D, an “approved” herbicide BLM uses on public lands

National Animal Identification System: Let’s start with the horses!

________________________________________________________________________________________

unclesamwantyouAfter the massive backlash over the attempts to establish national, government owned herds of all kinds of livestock, which began in 2008, and raged on for several years, the USDA finally admitted defeat and backed off.  At least publicly.  Behind the scenes the efforts continued to find that one thing that would give them a foothold in establishing the National Animal Identification System. (NAIS )  Bingo!  We got your handy dandy horses that can be used to get the ball rolling!

I have waited for someone to come out and say that “only  the wild ones” will be tracked and tagged, and sure enough someone did.  The problem with this is that the Bureau of Land Management, the agency charged with caring for, managing and protecting the wild herds, has been responsible for the slaughter of  most of them.  Very few of our wild horses, and even burros are left. Yet to hear the BLM tell it, there are untold hundreds of thousands of them on the herd management areas (HMA), and they are throwing litters of foals every year!  That’s if you take the fabricated “scientific evidence” to heart and never ask why few of these animals can be located and when you can locate them they are on the back of a truck headed for slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.

Clearly this effort to tag and track equines is a case of taking the path of least resistance.  Especially when the BLM has been so successful in convincing ranchers that if they just get on the band wagon demanding the slaughter of the wild horses…why…….there would be just that much more land available for welfare grazing permits!  With the cattlemen and the beef producers soundly behind the NAIS for horses, there should be little resistance from cattle producers, or at least not what it was when they were trying to steal their herds a few years back.

A word of caution:  IF USDA is successful in forcing tracking on equines, it will be small potatoes to establish NAIS for ALL livestock.  After all, equines are not even considered a food source in the US.  But those cattle are as are other livestock herds.

This will be like watching someone shooting themselves in the foot, over, and over, and over…………

Researchers with Genetically Modified CornWorldwide sentiment is shifting against Monsanto and GMO food crops. And China is making major moves.

At sustainablepulse.com, we have this May 14, 2014, article: “Chinese Army Bans All GMO Grains and Oil from Supply Stations”:

“The Chinese army has ordered all military supply stations to only allow the purchase of non-GMO grain and food oil due to health safety concerns over GMOs.

“This move by the Chinese army is being seen as yet another step towards the Chinese government’s expected ban on the import of all GMO grains and oilseeds within the next 2 years, due to growing public concern over GMOs. The expected ban would be a huge blow to the Biotech industry worldwide.

“The Hubei Province Xiangyang City Grain Bureau’s website announced on May 6, 2014:

“‘During recent years, as China’s grain and oil market has continuously developed, certain GMO grain and GMO food oil products have entered the market. In view that the safety concerns about GMO grain and oil products in China at present has not yet been determined, in order to overall assure the health of military members residing in our city and safety of their drinks and food, in accordance to the request from the Guangzhou Military Command Joint Logistics Department and the Provincial Military Grain & Food Oil Supply Center, from this date all military supply stations are allowed to only purchase non-GMO grain and food oil products from the designated processing enterprises. It is forbidden to supply GMO grain and food oil products to military units within their administration areas.  More

Weaponized Agriculture GMO CROPS…BOON TO HUMANITY OR RECKLESS SCIENCE?

Paul Craig Roberts/ Institute for Political Economy

Tom Mysiewicz is a biotechnologist. In this article he shares with us his conclusions about the dangers of GMO crops.

By Tom Mysiewicz

Recently, an NGO (non-governmental organization) in Russia—the National Association for Genetic Safety–began working closely with the Russian Duma to enact a set of laws criminalizing the introduction of harmful genetically-modified crops (GM or GMO crops) as well as withholding information on harmful effects of such crops. Russian President Vladimir Putin has indicated he will sign such legislation, saying Russia can grow enough food for itself without genetic engineering it.

“If Americans like to eat such foods, they can eat them,” Putin is reported to have said. But with GMO companies in the U.S. massively campaigning to hide GMO content—do Americans really know what they are eating?

I believe Russia and, increasingly, countries elsewhere, are on the right track in this regard. And I base this belief on my first-hand observations from the inception of GMO crops—and the original promises made and assurances given for this technology—to the much different reality I see today.

As founder and editor of the weekly biotechnology newsletter–BioEngineering News–I covered GMOs and ag-biotech from 1980 through 1993 and was the first journalist allowed (under a secrecy agreement) to cover a Gordon Research Conference. This groundbreaking conference, on Plant Genetic Engineering, was at U.C. Davis in the early 1980s. I have also had hands-on research experience, including lab courses on plant tissue culture in which I cloned a variety of plants from jojoba to redwood.

The original promise of genetic engineering was that crops could be grown without fertilizer or pesticides, in salt water if fresh water was scarce, and that the nutritional content could be altered at will by the addition of genes for amino acids (the building blocks of protein) such as L-lysine and genes coding for vitamins, such as vitamin A. In this “brave new world” hunger and malnutrition would be eliminated by massively higher crop yields. And there would be no down side: We were assured that there would be no actual or consequential harmful effects from such alterations.

Many Americans are not aware that the system of clinical trials and double-blind studies for new drugs means that it can cost $30- to $60-million to get a single new drug through FDA-mandated clinical trials. And, still, how many horror stories have we heard of dangerous drug side effects? Imagine if NO clinical trials were required for new drugs and only some rudimentary safety testing was necessary? Would you feel safe taking a new drug?

Well, that is the situation with GMO crops. More

Vermont Passes No-Strings-Attached GMO Labeling Law!

4 Comments

logo

imagesVermont consumers will be the first in the nation to have a clear choice.

 

On April 23, the Vermont legislature passed a bill mandating that all GMO foods be labeled by July 2016. The bill will now go to Governor Peter Shumlin, who has said he will sign the legislation into law.

Although Connecticut and Maine have already passed GMO labeling laws, Vermont’s bill is unique: unlike its New England neighbors, Vermont decided not to include a “trigger” provision in its bill. So while Connecticut’s and Maine’s bills won’t activate unless enough nearby states also pass GMO labeling laws, Vermont will immediately move forward with the labeling of GMO products.

Not everyone is celebrating. Karen Batra, spokeswoman for the Biotechnology Industry Organization, lamented that, “It’s disappointing that Vermont sees a need to implement such a costly and confusing food labeling program, and that it takes this action despite unequivocal scientific evidence supporting the safety of foods containing genetically modified ingredients. Any state-based law requiring the labeling of foods that contain GMOs creates extra costs for farmers, food manufacturers, distributors, grocers and consumers.”

Ms. Batra’s statement is riddled with inaccuracies. In point of fact, GMO labeling won’t raise costs for consumers or farmers! Moreover, despite what the biotech industry says, GMO foods have not “unequivocally” been proven to be safe—far from it. In fact, in animal studies, they’ve been linked to cancer, birth defects, and digestive issues. It is true that much more research needs to be done about GMO safety, including possible epigenetic effects that would only show up in future generations, but industry has done everything in its power, which is considerable, to squelch such research and those researchers brave enough to undertake it.

The DARK Act is Here: Denying Americans’ Right-to-Know

3 Comments

newirtbanner2014

Big Food is trying to kill your right to know if the food you’re eating is genetically engineered.

With their anti-labeling allies like Monsanto and Dow, the Grocery Manufacturers Association has teamed up with Koch brothers-backed Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas to introduce a federal bill that would deny your right to know.

The bill, which we’re calling the “Deny Americans the Right-to-Know Act (DARK Act),” would:

Prevent states from adopting their own GE labeling laws.

Block any attempt by states to make it illegal for food companies to put a “natural” label on products that contain GE ingredients.

Prevent the Food and Drug Administration from requiring companies to label GE ingredients and instead continue a failed “voluntary” labeling policy.

The bill–crafted by the Grocery Manufacturers Association-led Coalition for Safe and Affordable Food, has just been introduced by Rep. Pompeo, and has reportedly picked up two co-sponsors: Reps. Butterfield (D-NC 1st district) and Blackburn (R-TN 7th district). All three lawmakers serve on the Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over GE food labeling.

Tell Congress not to squash your right to know about genetically engineered foods!

It’s no surprise that industry chose the Kansas Republican as their cheerleader. Pompeo was the single largest recipient of campaign funds from Koch Industries in 2010. It’s clear that corporate money = legislative favors with Congressman Pompeo.

And now the Koch brothers are teaming up with Monsanto? Monsanto was the single largest contributor against the recent Washington State ballot initiative to label GE foods. Between Washington State and California, Monsanto, along with GMA and other agribusiness companies, have contributed over $67 million to keep consumers in the dark.

So what’s wrong with “voluntary” GE food labeling? In a word: everything. It is grossly misleading for industry—let alone members of Congress—to continue trumpeting the idea that voluntary labeling will solve the overwhelming consumer demand for labeling in the marketplace. In the 13 years that FDA has allowed companies to voluntarily label genetically engineered foods, not one single company has done so.

Without mandatory labeling of GE foods, consumers are being left in the dark about the foods we are purchasing and feeding our families. In 2013, over 50 GE labeling bills were introduced in 26 states, including Hawaii, Washington, Indiana, Missouri, and Vermont.

This industry-backed bill will cut these state labeling bills off at the knees and replace them with an undemocratic, hollow “voluntary” labeling scheme that does nothing to address consumer interests and only serves to allow corporations to deny us our right to know.

Tell Congress to drop this corporate hand-out of a bill!

Safe eating begins with INFORMED eating!
The small but mighty IRT team!

Human or not so much? Life after Vaccines and other assaults on human existence

“In fact, those who create these lethal injections have no way of knowing or predicting how these foreign genes are going to affect anyone, much less the overall population.  What is worse is that they apparently are conducting experiments on the public at large to see just what does happen when you shoot a human being full of chicken or dog DNA.”

_________________________________________________________________

Between the bio-pirates who are destroying the natural world with their unnatural frankenfood popuproducts and crops, and vaccine makers and pushers of other pharmaceutical assaults on the populations of the world,  we are adrift in a sea of mad scientists. Life on earth is being irrevocably altered.

The growing damage to the environment, food quality, and quality of life on this planet is readily apparent.  As a result, at what point do we lose our humanity?  And, at what point will genetic testing and DNA results be used to determine that many of us no longer qualify to be listed as “human”?  If this should happen, what will be done with, or to, those deemed to not have a high enough percentage of human DNA to qualify us as anything more than a lesser animal?  Further, who would make this determination?

At this point in time, this may seem to be far-fetched.  But try as I might, I cannot come up with one rational, logical reason for injecting via vaccines, the DNA of other human beings (human diploid cells), dogs, pigs, chickens and what ever else ran through the lab that day into the bodies of newborns, right up to those in old age.  These strands of DNA from animals and other humans are transfective.  This means they seek out the existing DNA and attach themselves to it, literally infecting it with foreign information, altering the original DNA forever.  The child is no longer the person they were intended to be, they can’t be because the infection caused by foreign non-related species has permanently damaged and changed the original DNA.  This can change not only the mental attributes, but may also begin altering the physical attributes in successive generations as the new genetic expressions override the original DNA.

In fact, those who create these lethal injections have no way of knowing or predicting how these foreign genes are going to affect anyone, much less the overall population.  What is worse is that they apparently are conducting experiments on the public at large to see just what does happen when you shoot a human being full of chicken or dog DNA.

The effects of vaccines on the elderly appears to manifest itself in an epidemic of brain decay in various forms as the number of elderly claimed to be suffering from these diseases is steadily increasing as targeted vaccines for the elderly rise simultaneously.

As the number of childhood vaccines increases, so do the number of cases of autism and other brain function disorders.

Transgenic: One jab at a time ?

Knowing as most of us do these days, that few governments around the world put any value in their populations, what would make any one of us think that our government, notorious for its disdain for the general public, would have our best interest at heart?

(Q). Why would our benevolent (sarc) government stand idly by, while the very building blocks of life, our genetic structure is damaged and manipulated by pharmaceutical manufacturers and other collectives of sociopath’s as these fools tamper with the structure of our very existence?  More

ANIMAL DISEASE TRACEABILITY final USDA rules for livestock moving interstate.

EYE WITNESS REPORT October 29, Sugar Creek, Ohio ANIMAL DISEASE TRACEABILITY final USDA rules for livestock moving interstate.

Yoder, Apple Creek, Ohio, on the left. Veterinarians, state staff and ranchers were in attendance.

The Ohio State Veterinarian, Tony M. Forshey, officiated an ADT rule — cattle requirements overview meeting with producers on Oct 29. This was one of about a dozen in Ohio and similar to a few cow-smiling-e1270815298540hundred held in most states.

My appreciation of Dr. Forshey was increased as I watched him carefully articulate the maze of complicated and difficult federal rules for state veterinarians and animal producers. The tight rope he had to walk being forced to enforce federal rules and yet having “state rights” to tweak certain parts of the rule making process — his assistant called it “ability to relax” federal ADT rules.

If the Affordable Care Act is confusing, the facial expressions of Ohio farmers attending told the story. One major veal producer, RC Farms, said “I am not going to do it!” No reply was offered by Dr. Forshey as to the enforcements, fines or penalties for future non-compliance. (I sensed he did not want to go there in this crowd.)

New ADT changes and procedures defined include:

~ There are federal rules of ADT that are enforced federally and there are ways a state veterinarian can increase enforcements or “relax” these rules. Although the feds have a solid rule process, states can and may or may not relax or add to these rules. The state veterinarian has that authority. More

Austrailia: Banks to use NLIS to spy on cattle producers

Attachment(1)

Memo: Many of you joined together to oppose the USDA’s NAIS ploy. Prior to our USA battle with the federales the Australians  were fighting the same battle, but they lost the war bigger and faster than the US sisters.  The Australian government has always been the “view into the future” for us.  Their NAIS is NLIS – National Livestock Identification Scheme.  With hearings and political battles USDA realized that over 90% of livestock owners refused to sign up for NAIS so they threw up their hands and said — we give up — NAIS is dead, ended, over.  Yet, as most expected, it raised an ugly finger in the air and now we  have ADT.  ADT is following the same path as NAIS and NLIS, but  slower, one state at a time.  Texas, of all states is leading  the charge in animal ID compliances, testing, and enforcements.      

The fight is still on. Our unfriendly-bureaucratic-predator government is adding the control rules one at a time, one state  at a time — hammering away toward NAIS.  It now is still federal, working under the radar as quasi state rules.

Notice the Australian cattlemen’s plea (article below) to be free again from the ignorance of NLIS.  Once in the  government’s claws, seldom do they release the prey. Darol

ABA Press Release

Banks to use NLIS to spy on cattle producers – ABA calls on Minister Joyce to intervene.

Meat and Livestock Australia has admitted it has commissioned consultants to develop a system that allows financial institutions to automatically access producers’, lot feeders’ and processors’ NLIS accounts to monitor livestock transactions.

The admission was made to former Australian Beef Association Director, John Carter.

It would seem MLA/NLIS is seeking to develop a user-pay system that automatically notifies a financial institution when stock are moved onto or off an NLIS Account/PIC – for purchase, sale or slaughter. Prospective users of the service are banks, stock and station agencies and any other party, such as an investor, prepared to pay for the service.

“This is an outrageous abuse of trust by MLA,” Australian Beef Association Director Brad Bellinger said.

As you know, last March, what the world has been calling the “Monsanto Protection Act” was inserted at the last minute into a “must-pass” funding bill to keep the government running through the use of a congressional tool known as a Continuing Resolution (CR). The so-called Farmer Assurance Provision—misnamed because, frankly, the only ones who are assured about anything are GMO manufacturers like Monsanto—actually strips federal courts of the authority to halt the sale and planting of potentially hazardous genetically engineered crops while USDA is performing an environmental impact statement.

Industrialized corporate farming Chemical Footprints

Our family farms have virtually disappeared.  In their place are massive, squalid industrial farming and ranching operations.  The result of this industrialization is low quality food contaminated with vaccines, hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides and hundreds, if not thousands of chemicals we are not even allowed to know about.

The conversion, predominately over the last thirty years, from traditional farming to chemical barn_dees4farming is devastating the land and water, especially in agricultural states such as those in the mid-west.  The result is chemical contamination and toxicity of land and water, now reaching critical levels and accumulating in our rivers and streams.  Many of these same rivers and streams are emptying into the Mississippi, Cedar and Missouri Rivers and end up in the Gulf of Mexico contributing to the “dead zone”; an oxygen depleted area in the Gulf where nothing grows or lives.  This area is enlarging each year.  Much of our historically productive agricultural land and our water is on the verge of being reduced to a chemical laden soup unfit for use.

While the carping continues by vested interests regarding our so-called carbon footprints, and while the government continues its already debunked “global warming” scam, may be its time someone looked into the toxic chemical footprint being imprinted on our land and in our water by  industrialized corporate farming.  The promises of bigger more valuable crops, capable of feeding the world have been dismissed as the reality of agricultural monopolies protected by government, produce less than desirable crops, severely lacking in nutritional value.

BLM Digs Deeper Into Man-Made Drought

______________________________________________________________

During a proclaimed drought across much of the West, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the Ely District of Nevada is offering up 399,873 acres of public lands for oil & gas lease sales.

This is being done even though “Fracking requires enormous quantities of water. Estimates put water usage at between 3 and 5 million gallons per fracking of a single well, and each well can be fracked several times.” 

The BLM issued an Environmental Assessment (EA) to lease these 399,873 acres June 28, 2013, only a month after issuing an EA to remove wild horses because “there is insufficient vegetation or water to maintain the wild horses’ health and well being.”

If there isn’t enough water for wild horses, how can there possibly be enough water for oil & gas exploration and development?  Where is the water going to come from?

The map below shows the oil & gas lease sale parcel areas in red, and some of the wild horse Herd Management Areas (HMAs), including Triple B (Buck-Bald & Butte), Antelope, Maverick-Medicine and Antelope Valley (which includes the Dolly Varden Range).

Now, take a look at these same HMAs below, with the red oil & gas lease sale area, including some of the groundwater basins in blue.

(Even though the red area may look small, there is a potential for a water drawdown and risk of water contamination over the area of the entire groundwater basin.  And, there is inter-flow between basins.)

This new paradigm legal document can be used anywhere in the world as given, with only the name and address of the filer being changed. It can be filed most effectively by sending it to each of the listed recipients via certified/registered/international mail, with email being an obvious but less impressive alternative; all of the recipients’ private, for-profit corporate websites have contact webforms. This public interest courtesy notice can also be followed up by sizable invoices from each of us to each corporate recipient, if certain objectionable activities do not quickly cease and desist.

Legal Matter: US Government Imposition of Monsanto’s Toxic Products on the American People and the People of the World

Whereas, the Monsanto Company, as a transnational purveyor of agricultural biochemical technology, has been incestuously incorporated into the US government since the Second World War, with its corporate agents being widely employed as federal legislators, lobbyists and agency/court officials;

US Government-Monsanto Corporate Ties

Whereas the vast majority of federal legal and administrative rulings have overwhelmingly favored Monsanto, despite the obvious merits of those public interest cases brought against this corporation for its toxic products of DDT, Agent Orange, Roundup, Saccharin, Aspartame, bovine growth hormone, genetically modified organisms/food, genetic patenting. terminator seeds and its organic seed bank fortress in the Arctic, as well as massive cancer clusters, crop failures, destruction of small farms, rainforests, public lands, farm lands, clean water and biodiversity, farmer suicides, and irremediable corruption of governments throughout the world;

US Government Agency/Court Rulings Overwhelmingly Favor Monsanto

Compilation of Articles About Monsanto-US Corporate Government Collusion in Criminal Activities

Whereas this exposes on the part of the US government corporation, its congressional board of directors, its agencies and its courts, deliberate denial of remedy, indicating complicity in criminal conspiracy by aiding and abetting Monsanto in crimes against nature and humanity, these also being war crimes, since America has been under martial law since the beginning of the Civil War in 1861; More

The letter below was received from Rep. Collin Peterson, 7th District, Minnesota.  Peterson’s 1267436152letter details his love of gmo’s and his belief that no science exist to substantiate the claims that gmo is harmful to human health.  With numerous countries around the world banning the use of gmo seeds, the importing of gmo products into their countries, and the massive number of scientific studies that were actually done to document the threat to the environment and public health that these frankenfood creations are causing, it appears Mr. Peterson is oblivious to all.  Makes you wonder what planet this guy is on. 

Mr. Peterson’s comments are in black.

My responses are in blue.

_____________________________________________________________

Dear Mr. Oakley:

Thank you for contacting my office about genetically engineered foods. I appreciate hearing from you.

Dear Mr. Peterson:  I doubt that you appreciate hearing from me or anyone else who isn’t on the bio-piracy wagon.  I am fully aware that this is a very lucrative association for you , not only politically, but personally as well.

Since the first genetically engineered crops became commercially available in the mid-1990s, U.S. soybean, cotton, and corn farmers have rapidly adopted them.

Farmers have not rapidly adopted genetically engineered crops unless you considered being coerced, bullied, terrorized, threatened with lawsuits or finding that bio-pirates such as Monsanto have monopolized the market and have the Supreme Court of The United States firmly in their pocket and also a cushy little seat in the White House to protect their interests, willing adoption of these crops.

Since that time there has been no scientific evidence suggesting that these crops are harmful. More

getimage1Jackass Alert!

The overtaking of several sectors of the federal government by private corporations who routinely use congress and the president to codify their unlawful activity to expand their monopolies has just received a huge gift package from those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals. Monsanto just received a payoff on its massive funding of campaign contributions on both sides of the isle, having the favor returned in the form of a free pass on any kind of control or any kind of judicial penalty on their collective species of invasive seeds.

The Continuing Resolution (CR) which has been pitched as a crisis bill because otherwise the world wouldfarmer3_dees come to an end, included a so-called sneak attack by Monsanto that would give it a free pass. The Monsanto Rider avoids USDA controls and eliminates any judicial system interference. Obviously unconstitutional, the rider violates the right to due process by those harmed by this corporation and establishes a clear pattern of collusion against the public at large.  No one actually wants Monsanto’s products and the grassroots resistance to these toxic crops has been non-stop.  Both houses of congress of course ignored the public backlash as they voted on a full scale corporate hiney hugging love fest.

Through a carefully constructed system of market manipulations, predatory practices, and with the complete cooperation of the USDA and the courts, Monsanto has relentlessly worked to end any farming endeavors that have not been consumed by their market monopoly.  It also helped out immensely that Michael Taylor, alleged former attorney for Monsanto was somehow appointed to the newly created and unconstitutional office of “Food Czar” right inside the White House!  I cannot help but wonder what input he may have had in this rotten deal.

The actual intent of this rider was to relieve congress, the courts and federal agencies such as the USDA, from having to publicly expose themselves as bought and paid for.  This rider actually serves to relieve them of having to expose themselves to any scrutiny or to require them to take any position arbitrary to Monsanto that might cause the  money train to run off the rails.

US code #7 Agriculture: Still not within the powers granted to the federal government

15 Comments

new-logo25Marti Oakley (c) copyright 2013 All Rights Reserved

PLEASE NOTE THE EDITED PARGRAPHS AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE DEALING WITH “CONSENT”.  THIS WAS A POINT I MISSED WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT.

___________________________________________________________________

The agricultural surveys are being sent out once again with a note on the front of the envelope stating “YOUR RESPONSE IS REQUIRED BY LAW”.  Actually not.  This statement is mis-leading, meant to intimidate and is completely false.  Title 7 Agriculture, is non-positive code & title.  This means the activities described and mandated under this code can only being cited as prima facie evidence, meaning homeland-poster-414421the wording can be cited as existing but cannot be used to bring criminal charges or used as the basis for declaring any right as illegal. It cannot be used or cited as an underlying authority for, as in this instance, declaring an unlawful survey  disguised as a “census” to be mandatory.   Prima facie is the assumption that something exist as other than what it actually is.  It takes little to determine that Title 7 is not lawful or constitutional.

The USDA nor any of the other alphabet agencies that exist as a result of non-positive code & title have no underlying authority except in the District of Criminals, insular possessions and territories occupied.  In the sovereign states, they have no force of law……..because they are NOT law.  These codes and titles exist as a wish list that has been foisted on the states with the help of your governors and state legislators who enabled them to contract with similar agencies in your state.  If you were not party to those contracts, (and you were not),if they were never revealed to you as existing (and they were not) and if you never signed your name agreeing to what is essentially the business plan of private corporations, you cannot be compelled to comply with the contract.  No state agency, regardless of whom it contracts with, can force those who were not party to the contract, to comply.

But don’t let this make you think a van load of jack-booted thugs from USDA won’t show up at your door, seize your assets and intimidate your family after unlawfully trespassing your property, most likely with the help of your local sheriff who is supposed to protect you from such incidences.  The law means absolutely nothing to these people.

Ultimately, Title 7 Agriculture, as with numerous other non-positive codes and titles, remains out of the lawful, constitutional reach of the federal corporation no matter how many egregious laws congress passes.  Agriculture is not in the powers enumerated for the federal government.

USDA Gearing Up to Conduct 2012 Census of Agriculture

National Agricultural Classification Survey is an Important Step toward a Complete Count
Washington, February 10, 2012 – Surveys are now arriving in mailboxes around the nation to help identify all active farms in the United States. The National Agricultural Classification Survey (NACS), which asks landowners whether or not they are farming and for basic farm information, is one of the most important early steps used to determine who should receive a 2012 Census of Agriculture report form. The Census of Agriculture, conducted every five years by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), is a complete count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who operate them.

FROM THE USDA SITE.

http://www.agcensus.usda.gov/Newsroo…02_10_2012.php

We are asking everyone who receives the NACS to respond even if they are not farming so that we build the most accurate and comprehensive mailing list to account for all of U.S. agriculture in the Census,” said NASS’s Census and Survey Director, Renee Picanso. “The Census is the leading source of facts about American agriculture and the only source of agricultural statistics that is comparable for each county in the nation. Farm organizations, businesses, government decision-makers, commodity market analysts, news media, researchers and others use Census data to inform their work.”

NACS is required by law as part of the U.S. Census of Agriculture. By this same law, all information reported by individuals is kept confidential. NASS will mail the 2012 Census of Agriculture later this year and data will be collected into early 2013.

“The NACS survey is the first step in getting a complete count, so we ask everyone who receives a survey to complete and return it,” said Picanso. “The Census is a valuable way for producers and rural America to show their strength – in numbers.”

The 2012 Census of Agriculture is your voice, your future, your responsibility. For more information about NACS, the Census of Agriculture, or to add your name to the Census mail list, visit

www.agcensus.usda.gov.

NASS provides accurate, timely, useful and objective statistics in service to U.S. agriculture. We invite you to provide feedback on our products and services. Sign up at http://usda.mannlib.cornell.edu/subscriptions and look for “NASS Data User Community.”

*****************************************************************

This Census is a valuable way for the USDA to manipulate markets, to map out who and where food is being produced that might interfere with global producers, say for instance, Monsanto.

The Census is a valuable way for producers and rural America to show their strength – in numbers.”  The first question here would have to be, “In what possible way?”  It is the numbers they are after.  Just how big is the remaining, dwindling independent and family ranching and farming community and what is it likely to take to put them out of business?

WITHDRAW BLM OIL/GAS LEASES FROM COLORADO’s PREMIER ORGANIC FARMING REGION

1 Comment

WE THE PEOPLE

we petition the obama administration to:

WITHDRAW BLM OIL/GAS LEASES FROM COLORADO’s PREMIER ORGANIC FARMING REGION AND UPDATE BLM’s 25-YEAR-OLD LAND USE PLAN

Tell BLM: Don’t Open Colorado’s Organic Farms to Oil and Gas Drilling/Fracking

Western Colorado’s North Fork Valley is Colorado’s only rural winery region  and has the state’s highest concentration of organic farms and ranches. It is an intimate mixture of private, small family farms–many certified by the USDA as organic–and public lands, including many managed by the BLM.

The BLM is an agency within the U.S. Dept. of Interior that manages most of the public’s minerals. BLM once wrote a land use plan for the area, twenty-five years ago. Now it seeks to use that plan–even though it never even considered oil and gas development in the North Fork to be much of a possibility–to open the area for drilling and fracking.

Finish the land use plan update and take these leases off the table

To Slay a Genetically Modified Monster

Or, why California’s Proposition 37 is important to the rest of the world

A landmark independent study by Canadian doctors published in the peer-reviewed journal Reproductive Toxicology this May found that toxins from soil bacterium that had been engineered into genetically modified (GM or GMO) Bt corn to kill pests was present in the bloodstream of 93 percent of pregnant women as well as in 80 percent of their fetal cord blood.
It was the first human clinical trial of genetically modified food; though humanity has been eating it for almost 16 years.
During the interim, manufacturers of GMOs refused to allow independent labs in the US to test their “patented seeds” to see if they posed a danger for consumption or whether or not they could cause cancer or trigger unknown or long-term health problems for adults; or harm fetuses, newborns, and children. . .unless researchers signed an agreement allowing the manufacturer to review and approve the results of the study.

European countries ran independent lab tests on animals fed GMOs anyway.
The results weren’t pretty

Rubber stamped by the FDA, GMO seed manufacturers and Big Agra began feeding Americans unlabeled GMO food during the 1990s.  Groundwork for this scheme was laid during the 1970s and continues to date.
Politically appointed personnel connected to the biotech industry were quietly placed at the FDA, USDA, and other key positions in Washington by elected shills slathered with campaign donations from the biotech industry and Monsanto—the world’s largest GM seed manufacturer—to facilitate the introduction of GMO food into the world.
GMOs were subsequently declared “. . .essentially equivalent to natural food . . .” or words to that effect . . . and Monsanto was given the green light to release its genetically modified seed into national and world food markets.
GMOs and their derivatives quickly found their way into 80-85% of what America ate.

With no labeling.

Thus America became Monsanto’s fiat lab for genetically modified food; their long-term clinical study. That’s why GMO-seed manufacturers quietly dumped the lion’s share of their toxic seeds into North America, Latin America, and India ; selling it to farmers as an agricultural Valhalla; “a green revolution”; knowing full well possible dangers could develop from the consumption of this food; all the while keeping the public beneath its toadstool.

It’s also why GMOs haven’t been labeled! in the United States. Other nations, once they realized the potential dangers of GM food, put labels on the food and Monsanto’s markets dried up because grocers refused to carry it when consumers refused to buy it.

Here’s an accurate one hour documentary on the implications of this for humanity .

Why weren’t Americans told about GMO food? More

Travel IH-10 West from San Antonio and you will eventually pass through Fort Stockton, Texas. Continue on and you will notice grass-covered mountains coming into view on the left side of  IH-10.  These mountains are the Barrilla Mountains. They blend with the Davis Mountains and others that  stretch south of the highway for more than a hundred miles to the Rio Grande;  mountains covered with rich, rocky, volcanic soil that can’t be plowed; mountains good only for ranching—the bigger the better.  Water in theseThunderhead mountains is scarce and deep except for an occasional spring. Ranchers there are totally dependent upon rainfall to produce the protein-rich gramma grasses for which the mountains are known.

Opposite the mountains and to the right of IH-10 west, the land is level and stretches miles north, checker-boarded by farms sitting atop good soil and an aquifer that supplies water for crop  irrigation or sprinklers or cienegas.

Thunderheads bring rain to both sides of this stretch of IH-10.  They form naturally in the west and northwestern sky and move east, raining on rancher and farmer alike. The ranchers watch these thunderheads and hope for rain.  The farmers watch these thunderheads and hope it doesn’t.

The hardest drought ever to hit West Texas began in the 1950s.  Southwest Weather Research, a company that seeded clouds, began to dissipate forming thunderheads to eliminate the possibility of  hail north of IH-10.

Ranchers in the Davis Mountains asked the farmers to not do this. They needed the rain.  Many were teetering on the edge of bankruptcy and one more dry summer would  push some over the edge. They were running out of water and grass and watching livestock die as springs and dirt tanks went dry.

The farmers said no.  Lines were drawn. Thunderheads would form, the cloud seeding planes would arrive, and 20 minutes later the cloud would be dissipated. In desperation, some individual(s)—no one is quite sure who—climbed atop their windmill(s) in the afternoon when the thunderheads formed and seeded them with lead when the  planes arrived.

They never downed any, but seeding pilots began discovering an occasional bullet hole during preflight checks. Protests were lodged with local gendarmes.

“You get a look at who it was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell no. I was too busy flying.”

“You sure someone was ashootin’ at cha?”

“Hell yes I’m sure. I got a bullet hole right here in my plane you can stick a finger in.”

“Well, see if you can get a good look at who it is that’s ashootin’  at cha, and where he was ashootin’ at cha from, and we’ll go talk to him. Otherwise, ain’t a whole lot we can do.”

Or words to that effect.

Pilot enthusiasm for seeding clouds above the Davis Mountains faded. More

Utah Garden Challenge for Suckers

5 Comments

By Cassandra Anderson
July 5, 2012

The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food is promoting the Utah Garden Challenge in order to collect information about independent food production for the USDA.

The Utah Garden Challenge is a voluntary contest to register 10,000 gardens.  The data mining project has a broad interest in any “resource” who is growing food:

“Whether you grow a tomato in a pot, a row in a community garden, have backyard gardens, a CSA or working fruit and vegetable farm, we want to hear from you because you are an important resource as a food producer.”


While the contest paints a proud face on independent food production, it is important to remember that registering with the government sets up a system to track, tax, permit or confiscate the registered item.  Gun ownership is a good example of this scheme.

According to a pop-up window on the official website, participants’ gardens will be registered with the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS):

“We need to know how much food is being produced in Utah.  The Census of Agriculture is done every 5 years.  Every agricultural operation in Utah, regardless of size, is vital to this question.  If you produce $1000 of agricultural products, you can influence economic development and decision making by filling out a NASS survey.  We will only share your information with NASS by your permission.  Your response to the census of agriculture is protected by law.  For more information, you can go to http://www.agcensus.gov

In other words, people who produce $1000 or more worth of food have an impact on the food market, and the USDA wants to know about what you are doing in your backyard.  The USDA is notorious for its corrupt partnerships and revolving door business relationships with big commercial agriculture.

Food is under attack because if you can grow your own food, have access to water and shelter, then what use do you have for a government master? More

2012 Farm Bill: Big (G)AG Bonanza!

2012 Farm Bill: Big (G)AG  Bonanza!

We are a country teetering on the edge of insolvency.  In response to this looming crisis, those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals passed another 1000 + page bill loaded with pork barrel spending, special grants and subsidies, and special programs that no one needs or wants and no one could decipher to any great degree if they had to.  This is intentional as it allows for “interpretation” later on when they need it to say something it most likely does not. This virtually unreadable, un-decipherable twisted up, convoluted mess of a piece of legislation will cost the US $969 billion over 10 years.  Thats $969 billion dollars to be spent on agencies and programs that are actually, unconstitutional and which will further devastate the agricultural sector unless it is industrial, pro-corporate in scope.  This while as a country we are not able to pay our bills without borrowing ever massive amounts of money.

Here are some of the highlights from the latest catastrophy from the District of Criminals: More

More Pork for “Big Pig”

“The words feral, non-native, and invasive species are now being slung around by government agencies like mud in a pig pen.” 

____________________________________________________________
In what can only be described as a slaughter of private property rights along with the livelihoods of small farmers, the Director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources declared that pigs with certain physical characteristics that are found on breeding or sporting facilities, are considered “invasive species” and need to be destroyed. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) won’t compensate facilities for their financial losses. If facility owners refuse to comply, the DNR will convict them of a felony.

Mark Baker, a pig farmer in Michigan, owns Bakers Green Acres. He served in the Air Force for 20 years. He has a family. And recently, he has been worried that a SWAT team will show up at his farm to kill all of his pigs and to arrest him as a felon. According to a recent Cadillac.com article, Michigan State Sen. Darwin Booher “estimated close to 2,000 small farm operators could be put out of business as a result of the order.”
Michigan DNR seems to be making up its own definition of “invasive species.”

Senator Booher said DNR’s “…definition of an invasive (swine) species is not clear.” “For example, the order defines the ear structure of an invasive swine as both erect and floppy, depending on if the pig is a hybrid breed or not.”

Not only that, it seems that DNR’s definition is totally different from that of the National Invasive Species Council.

The Invasive Species Advisory Committee for the National Invasive Species Council clearly pointed out thatIt is also essential to recognize that invasive species are not those under human control or domestication, that is, invasive species are not those that humans depend upon for economic security, maintaining a desirable quality of life, or survival.” (The Invasive Species Definition Clarification and Guidance White Paper, April 2006) More

USDA, FDA colluding with CODEX organizations

__________________________________________________

The news that USDA was closing down 250 domestic offices in order to supposedly save 150 million a year in funds has been generally received as an advanced warning across America of an oncoming new program administered by some agency, council or group other than the USDA.  Bear in mind, this is the same USDA that is squandering 250 million in bogus grants to get smart meters installed in rural America. 

The USDA which has become nothing more than a domestic threat to rural America never does anything remotely considered to be family, independent, rural, USA friendly unless of course you happen to be one of those Big Ag and the Bio-Pirates, corporate partners. 

The idea that USDA is closing domestic offices while leaving massive numbers of foreign offices open for business is alarming on the one hand and yet, somehow comforting to think the staffs of what has become known as a domestic terrorist organization might be out of work.  Not so fast Gretel!  What you need to be asking yourself is……what is going to replace it?  You know they aren’t just going to leave our family farmers and ranchers alone.  There is something else most definitely in the works and the notice below might just be the tip off to what that something is and what might be on the horizon.

The fact that the infamous FDA was part of this meeting should have us all running screaming for cover.  More

The USDA Agricultural survey: Voluntary not mandatory

Marti Oakley (c) copyright 2012 All Rights Reserved

_______________________________________________________

The USDA is busy sending out its Agricultural Survey attempting to elicit from unwary property owners, information regarding any agricultural production or livestock or poultry (this can be virtually ANY crop, animal or bird) that you may own and goes on to ask how much monetary value is placed on produce or the sale of animal/poultry products.  The [survey] also mentions that any one who produces and sells more than $1,000 per year is asked to voluntarily supply this information to the government.  $1,000 a year is such a paltry amount and is significant in the fact that this amount is so low as to encompass virtually anything you might wish to grow and produce even for your own use.  It would be virtually impossible for the federal government to confiscate food sources in the event they decide they must, unless they know first hand where that source is located and how much of it is there. 

This is a voluntary survey and is not a [census].  Survey’s are voluntary, the census taken every ten years to do a head count of our population is not.

Losing your right to grow, harvest and consume your own food

__________________________________________________________

No one would have believed that the Russian government would have intentionally starved an estimated 10 million Ukrainian people to death, but the fact is …from 1932-33 they did.  During the Holodomor people became so ravenous, some inevitably turned to cannibalism. The Russian government accomplished this mass starvation by seizing control of all food production and forcing everyone to work for collective farms.  Farmers and ranchers were forced to give up their land and livestock to the state and were not allowed to consume any of the food they produced; all of it was held in government owned silo’s and terminals.  All of it sold for export to other countries and the money used to finance wars. 

This was genocide on a massive scale. It was a genocide intended to take land and farming away from the people and convert it all to state (corporate) control. It was estimated that 80% of the Ukrainian population were farmers.  As the millions died, other ethnic groups were brought in to replace the Ukrainians.  And it all began with the Russian government depleting grain reserves and food supplies and then claiming ownership and control of agriculture.

While our own government has not yet begun withholding food from the general population, the transferring of other ethnic groups into our communities through the promotion of illegal immigration across our southern border and from the dumping of massive numbers of alleged refugees from many mid-eastern countries into communities where the cultural, religious and ethnic back grounds quickly divide the population, is happening.  This is an intentional disruption of these communities not for the purpose of diversity, but rather, to end the sense of cultural and national unity.  This is nation busting.  Its purpose is to destroy any sense of community or national identity and loyalty.
