The ClEAR ACT: They are stealing it all: Land, water, minerals and the air we breathe

Another assault on the American public is under way; this one will enlarge and increase the power of the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management to such a degree that none of us will be safe from these corrupted and unlawful corporate federal agencies operating under the public deception; “a public service agency”. These are in fact, duly authorized and chartered private corporations which have long since ceased to function as public services, if in fact they ever did.

Those who ramble through the halls of the District of Criminals, who claim they have no time to write the bills; no time to read the bills, somehow found the time to vote to pass this federal, land, asset and natural resource grab, including water rights, through the House.  The bill now rests in the Senate, where there is little chance that the property rights of individuals or states, will survive. 

HR.3534, Consolidated Land, Energy, and Aquatic Resources Act of 2010 (Reported in House – RH)  will effectively render a greater amount of land as owned and/or controlled for profit, by the federal government along with minerals and water rights to now be controlled by the federal government and enforced through the BLM and other newly created enforcement agencies.

Could Genetically Modified Crops be causing E-Coli Contamination?

Farm Wars

There is long list of  dangers inherent in genetically modifying our food supply, which includes:

  • Cross-species viruses
  • New bacteria
  • Antibiotic resistance
  • Reactivation of dormant viruses
  • New, never before seen genes
  • Destruction of the environment

The question is, can we add e-coli contamination to this list?

Somebody save us! The USDA is partnering with DuPont!

Leave a comment

If the idea of DuPont and the USDA teaming up doesn’t send chills down your spine, I guess not much will.  But here in a nutshell, the global threat to the food supply…..in other words….the industrialization of food production…..is somehow now at risk from new and resistent strains of e-Coli.  Damn! wonder how that happened?  This is where the groundwork for more invasive and pointless regulations will begin.  First you create a crisis…..

DuPont and USDA team up to tackle emerging food safety threat

By Rory Harrington, 04-Aug-2010

A new joint project between DuPont Qualicon and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) aims to develop testing to detect hard-to-identify strains of E.coli that are not regulated and have been causing increasing instances of food contamination.

The US-based company said tests have already been developed for E. coli O157:H7, the type of shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) most frequently associated with global food contamination outbreaks. But the company will partner the USDA after identifying a gap that currently exists in assays to detect other strains. DuPont characterised the non-0157 types as an “emerging threat to the food supply”. More

FSA investigates claims of ‘cloned’ milk in UK

Leave a comment

Leave it to the good ol’ FDA! 

“US approval

Across the Atlantic, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2008 issued a scientific conclusion that meat and milk from cloned cows, pigs and goats and their offspring are safe.

This decision effectively made it legal for such produce to enter the food chain in the US, although strong opposition still remains from health and consumer groups, as well as some major food manufacturers.”

The UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said it is investigating claims that milk from a cloned cow has entered the nation’s dairy supply.

The announcement comes after an unnamed dairy farmer told the International Herald Tribune that he was using milk from a cow bred from a clone as part of his daily production.

FSA said that this would need to be considered for ‘novel food’ approval before it can be sold in the market. Novel food legislation covers food that has not been consumed to any significant degree in the EU before May 1997.

No novel foods applications or approvals of products from cloned animals have been made, said FSA. More

World Bank warns on ‘farmland grab’ trend

Financial Times | July 27 2010

By Javier Blas in London

Investors in farmland are targeting countries with weak laws, buying arable land on the cheap and failing to deliver on promises of jobs and investments, according to the draft of a report by the World Bank.

“Investor interest is focused on countries with weak land governance,” the draft said. Although deals promised jobs and infrastructure, “investors failed to follow through on their investments plans, in some cases after inflicting serious damage on the local resource base”.

In addition, “the level of formal payments required was low”, making speculation a key motive for purchases. “Payments for land are often waived … and large investors often pay lower taxes than smallholders … or none at all.” More
