S.510 – THE FOOD SAFETY AND MODERNIZATION ACT PASSES IN THE SENATE: THE SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS WIN AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LOSE AGAIN!

“Campaign Contributions received from any source other than individual United States citizens is nothing more than bribery and the practice should be made illegal. The passage of this bill is a prime example.”

__________________________________________________________
The big international food conglomerates must be celebrating today as the US Senate passed it’s version of the Food Safety and Modernization Act by a vote of 73 to 25. The only amendment to the Food Safety Modernization Act allowed was the Tester Amendment which exempts small operations (earning under $500,000 a year) from having to file a food safety plan. Congress must now pass a final form of HR 2749 and S 510, which President Obama is expected to sign into law.

The Socialist Democrats in the Senate have done it again by pushing big government further onto family farms and ranches and into our local stores and homes.

THE VOTE: Grouped by Home StateAlabama: Sessions (R-AL), Nay — Shelby (R-AL), Nay

S.510 passes: The Senate effectively declares itself an agent of foreign principals

___________________________________________________________

Comment: As most of you know, S.510 the fake food safety bill which had nothing to do with food safety, passed the Senate this morning.  This bill, which will go down in history as one of the greatest weaponless assaults on the States by the central government, is intended to knock the knees out from under what little is left of our economy.

________________________________________________

Section 404 of the bill, forces the subjugation of the citizens of the States to unlawful trade agreements, international organization demands, and will reduce operating standards across the board for bio-piracy corporations in order to maximize their profits and to end as much competition in those markets as possible.  These unlawful agreements and the mandates from such odious organizations as the World trade Organization, Codex Alimentarius committees, and other foreign principals have unlawfully usurped US laws and sovereignty, forfeiting our right to self determination and governance.

The bill, which expands a notoriously dysfunctional and incompetent agency, the FDA, is also intended to abrogate the rights of the citizens.  The multiple constitutional violations in the bill went by unnoticed by members of the Senate; probably because the majority of them never even read the bill and had no idea what was in it.  These violations of rights also seemed to by pass the mental faculties of several high profile front groups and individuals.

Numerous and so-called “consumer organizations” along with so-called “food experts”, some of them nationally known, sent emails out claiming that a few thousand of their members had email or called in, in support of this attack on independent agriculture.  Claiming misinformation and myth was abounding surrounding the bill, it was apparent they had either been bought off or were at some point allowed to be in the presence of some of the District of Criminals’ royalty; this audience obviously put them in a state of compliant awe.  No one who actually read the bill could come away thinking or believing this bill had anything to do with making food safe; there was nothing in the bill that could accomplish this.   More

Dear Senator Harkin: Knock! knock! Puddin’ Head! We’re broke!

JACKASS ALERT!

This week’s Jackass Award goes to Senator Tom Harkin.  While the country founders in debt, Senator Harkin maintains that he has the constitutional right to create debt through the use of earmarks!  Makes him look really good at home come election time!

__________________________________________________________Yesterday I sat through about 45 minutes of arguments on the Senate floor via C-SPAN, regarding the use of earmarks which by the Senates’ own admission, costs the country an average of 350 BILLION dollars per year.  This is money spent by elected officials which amounts to an indirect tax on the country as a whole; a tax which will be converted to campaign slogans and bragging about how Senator “So&So” brought home the bacon.  Unfortunately, the entire country has to buy that pig although few us will get to sit down to the meal.

Much to my amazement Senator Harkin (D) IA. , gave a long and tedious speech about how the “sun shines” on all the earmarks and these are public knowledge, and how this is somehow the right of Senators to continue to spend us into un-repayable debt while indirectly taxing us to promote their campaigns.  Using the words “sunshine, transparency, and the CONSTITUTION, Harkin claimed it was their constitutional right to spend money we don’t have just to make themselves look good at home. 

I found this speech all the more amazing as Mr. Harkin just voted for cloture on S.510, the fake food safety bill, which assaults any number of constitutional rights of individuals.  It appears obvious those “rights” only apply to the Senate as far as Harkin is concerned.  During his high drama speech on S.510, filled with skewed data, and the usual bleating and crying about people “dying and suffering” right now!,  which he claimed he had personally worked on for years, it seems the Senator didn’t recollect anything about the Constitution as it pertained to the citizenry.  Must be some kind of congressional Alzheimers; selective memory or expedient mis-recollection.  Whatever it is, Harkin seems to be in advanced stages of the disease.

It also seems glaringly apparent that few Senators, nor any one else in government for that matter, have any comprehension or concern for the enormous debt that is piling up as we are systematically driven into a debt so massive and so incomprehensible to the average person, that the actual numbers cause the mind to go numb. 

I find it appalling that with 22 million Americans out of work, 48 million families on food stamps, the Federal Reserve poised to collapse the dollar, no one willing to buy any more of our treasuries due to our massive and unrepayable debt load, that any government official, much less a Senator would advocate for a practice that costs the country annually, 350 BILLION dollars! With annual revenues in the toilet due to massive unemployment, the idea that any Senator would be enraged by the idea that one of his cash cows was about to be tipped over while the country slips further into economic collapse,  just infuriates me.

So, to Senator Harkin and all those other government officials who obviously believe that money does grow on trees:

 KNOCK! KNOCK! PUDDIN’ HEAD!   WE’RE BROKE!  STOP SPENDING MONEY WE DON”T HAVE! 

I personally believe that any Senator or Representative who obtains the benefits of indirect campaign promotion through the use of earmarks, should be required to pay taxes on those funds and should also be required to forfeit their annual salary as an act of good faith to offset the debt they created through the practice of earmarks.

Hitting them in their pockets while they pick our pockets might slow the progression of one of the most corrupt practices in congress.

The Senate has convened and will vote again for cloture on S.510; at this moment Senator Tom Harkin is speaking about why the bill is so important.  Echoing the drama of Senator Durbin, Harkin alludes to the “sick and dying” people in this country as a result of food borne illness.  All the drama aside: neither Harkin, Durbin nor any other Senator will identify the true sources of food contamination arising from industrialized farming and ranching, self-inspecting processing plants, and contaminated food imports coming into the country uninspected. 

Regardless of all the flowery language, all the hyped up drama issuing from these Senators who have remained totally silent as the FDA, the agency they intend to unlawfully empower, has been the facilitator for hundreds of lethal and deadly pharmaceuticals allowed into the markets that cause physical damage and even death in thousands of cases.  With this in mind I doubt anyone could conclude that this bill is in reality about food safety, but is instead about the transfer of power to a corporate agency belonging to the Federal corporation; the intent of course is to also transfer blame for what will ensue once this overthrow of agriculture is completed.

Neither Senator nor any of the bills sponsors make any mention of the subjugation to unlawful trade and harmonization agreements or the underlying assaults on Constitutional rights.  Not one speaker can claim anything other than systems already in place as pertaining to food safety that are reiterated in the bill.   The focus of the bill is: More

The Value Added Tax: A Hidden New Tax to Finance Much Bigger Government

Leave a comment

Although I totally disagree with this man’s description of Social Security as an “entitlement” program, attempting to paint it as some form of welfare, the remainder of his assessment is quite accurate. 

The greatest unfunded libaility we have is the federal government…the same government which has stolen and estimated 3 trillion from Social Security since the Johnson administration.  It becomes “unfunded” because they have no way and never intended to pay it back without turning yet again, to the working class to replenish the theft of  FICA taxes invested in Social Security. 

Social Security becomes a “liability” when the funds stolen exceed those coming in; a threshold we will reach in 2035.

America: In the midst of a hostile takeover

10 Comments

Marti Oakley (c) copyright (c)copyright All Rights Reserved 

_______________________________________________

Currently, it is my belief that as a nation we are in the process of a hostile takeover facilitated by government on behalf of multi-national corporations and world organizations.  At stake is our land, water, food, communications and even the air we breathe.  We have no representation in the District of Criminals; these individuals have sold themselves off to these same hostile entities and are unwilling to act on our behalf.  

______________________________________________

It appears the American public is finally beginning to wake up.  Many are beginning to look beyond the hyped hysteria of the District of Criminals, the phony political posturing and the all too convenient crisis’s that magically appear just prior to some rights robbing, government expansion piece of legislation being introduced or passed, and see that what is happening is not accidental or incidental, but was all pre-planned.

We saw this process at work just prior to the first attempt to shove S.510 (the hostile takeover of agriculture) through the Senate.  Magically, mysteriously, out of nowhere……terrorist eggs threatened the entire nation.  Supposedly, had we had S.510 in place this wouldn’t have happened.  Well, of course not. Never mind FDA knew way back last March that a problem had surfaced in Oregon related to the terrorist eggs and, never mind that they had been given new authority over eggs as this manufactured crisis was allowed to reach epic proportions so that it could be used to terrorize the public into submitting to the fake food safety bill just a week before the Hannibal Lechter of the Senate, Harry Reid, brought s.510 that fake food safety bill up for a vote.

We saw it years earlier with the Patriot Act; a pre-written, ready to go assault on the Constitution just waiting for an event; and shazam! We were hit with the 9/11 event and the Patriot Act was passed a few days later without debate or even having been read by congress. Strange thing about the Patriot Acts: the only people penalized under these acts were…..the American people.    More

“Conquerors never, never conquer a nation to bring freedom. They conquer a nation to control the masses.”   Ernst Zundel

“America will fall without a shot being fired.  It will fall from within.”  Nikita Krushchev 

From the dawn of civilization ambitious men have set out to rule the masses by the sword, the spear and the arrow.  The lust to rule is buried deep inside the neurons of those who carry the gene that drives them to seek absolute power by any means.  The reason for their butchery and savagery is irrelevant, be it religion, land, or resources, or just plain insanity.  It is just the exercise of raw power for the sake of ego.    

In the name of conquest, kings, despots and dictators have taken the lives of more people and shed more blood than most of the dreaded diseases that have decimated cultures since the early Egyptians.  And now, man’s capacity to kill hundreds of thousands or even millions, lies within his grasp upon cracking the unimaginable power of the atom. 

However, an ambitious man or men, need not shed blood anymore, to conquer a nation.  They only need to exploit man’s ignorance and stupidity and his inability to be aware of what goes on around him.   First, they infiltrate government at every level with their trained followers and set their agenda with new law, after new law.  Increasing control of the masses, over a long period of time is their goal.  They don’t need guns to control the people, they only need willing subjects who are looking the other way.  More

 Why is “free trade at any expense” reserved only for multi-national corporations?  Why is every other sector of the economy supposed to be allowed to engage in a free-for-all at the entire countries expense, but when it comes to family and independent agriculture there are literally hundreds of thousands of regulations, limitations, rules, and requirements, licensing, and forfeiture of rights,  spanning multiple agencies who spend the bulk of their funding on “enforcement” of what usually amounts to nothing less than an interference in trade, profit and viability and which many times constitute an open assault on Constitutionally protected property and individual rights. 

_______________________________________________

I can only imagine the salivating occurring behind the scenes in the District of Criminals, as the corporations and interested parties including the World Trade Organization, Codex Committees and other vested stakeholders anticipate the passage of S.510, the fake food safety bill.  Should this bill pass, we as a country will be officially divested not only of our sovereignty but of our independence.  No country in the history of the world has survived for long without a strong and independent agricultural sector.  Take that away, and the fall of the country soon follows.  No nation that cannot, or will not, feed its own people, ever survives.  Independent agriculture is and always has been the backbone and the underlying support for economic stability and security.  It is this support and security that S.510 seeks to destroy. 

S.510 is not about food safety; it is however the last lynchpin in the seizure of food production and supply that was begun under Bush the Lesser.  Control the food; control the people.  

This same model envisioned in S.510 was used in recent years in Poland.  An estimated 60% of Polish farms are now gone.  In India, more than 8 million farmers have left their farms as a result of similar systems implemented by the World Trade Organization on behalf of bio-pirates of all kinds.  Here in the US an estimated 1/3 of all farms that existed in 2000, have now vanished.  We are, according to farmaid.org , losing 3-500 farms and ranches every week as the industrialized corporate machine being driven by congress and its agencies rolls across our land.  Food safety never was the issue.  Food as a Weapon is another story.

Burning Goodwill: A reply to a consumer organization regarding S.510

Copyright ©2010 by W. R. McAfee, Sr.

___________________________________________

A reply to a consumer organization’s email soliciting ‘friends’ to contact their representatives in Washington and ask them to support  S. 510, the Food “Safety” bill

_____________________________________________

You are either totally ignorant about the contents of S. 510, the food “safety” bill, or you are a shill.

 Effective April 1, 2011, the selling of vitamins and nutritional supplements without a prescription will officially become illegal in Europe. The framework for this travesty is called the Codex Alimentarius, Napoleonic-era gibberish and brainchild of the World “Health” Organization, that was instituted to make the natural and organic health supplements go away—a  three billion dollar a year competitive market that cuts into the profits of BigPharma’s prescription pill and vaccine factories. 

Codex is being brought to humanity by these same wonderful folk—the World Health Organization and ‘associates’—who attempted to orchestrate a swine flu “pandemic” for the globe after hyping it four years—how does anyone know a “pandemic” is coming four years out?—so vax manufacturers could pre-sell governments their “vaccines” so they could “. . .be ready when it started.”

Which it didn’t. Sort of, they tried to throw a pandemic but no one came to the shot party.  At least not nearly  enough to use all the vaccine the governments had paid for.  Then they tried giving it away.  Still not enough takers.

One shipment of the vaccine that was sent to a European lab was “inadvertently” contaminated with the virus that could have started the pandemic in Europe had not the lab checked it before distributing the vaccine.

Imagine that.

America’s Food “Safety” bill, S. 510, also makes illegal backyard vegetable and fruit gardens, as well as products grown by large, wholesale, organic producers for organic outlets such as Whole Foods. The organic food market is the fastest growing market in the food industry today.  It also cuts directly into the World Health/World Trade Organization’s scheme to control the world’s food through genetically modified seed and patents.

Are the players beginning to sound familiar?  They’re the same players that manufactured genetically modified cotton seed. Want to know how the people who’ve grown cotton and food organically for thousands of years fared with this genetically modified cotton?  Take a look:

Stop S.510, the fake food safety bill, at your state line

_____________________________________________

S..510 calls for the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to contact the governors of each state to determine which agencies within the state will contract on behalf of the state to administer the USDA/FDA federal plans for seizing control of food production and supply, handing it over to multi-national corporations and setting into motion the eradication of family and independent farms and ranches.  These new “business plans” (which is what S.510 is, a business plan), require contracting with state agencies accompanied of course, by bags of USDA bribery money called “cooperative funding”. 

_______________________________________________

The federal government, including Senator Reid, who is yet again pushing for a vote on S.510, the fake food safety bill, know they cannot pass any enforceable law on the federal level dealing with agriculture; it is not in the enumerated powers, and will exist only as a non-positive code and title.  Because these “laws” are outside the scope of the federal government, they cannot be used to criminalize what was other wise your right to do without their interference.  Non-positive code and title, in this case Title 7 USC, cannot be revised, codified and assigned a public law number as these corporate codes are outside the authority of the federal government.  Should S.510 pass, it is null and void on its face, as if it never existed, but not one of your Senators or Representatives will tell you this.   

In an effort to bypass congress and the president so that none of these illustrious individuals can be held directly accountable for this act of aggression, this selling out of America’s farms and ranches, this selling off of our national security regarding food under the threat of further contamination which these same agencies facilitated by their refusal to act in our defense as they contracted against us, the USDA and FDA have become the most clear and present danger to the US and, congress in both houses is enabling this threat.    

USDA and FDA are sliding onto the Federal Register and attempting to expand their power and authority by claiming a “presumption” of authority which they were never intended to have.  Every attempt is made to change the “rules” on the register and then claim they have this new power because no one objected and rebutted their assertions.  When rebuttals, using law,  are presented on the register which has been done FDA and USDA fall silent and just proceed on as if nothing happened.  Of course, not one word from those Senators or Representatives about this; they were probably out to lunch with corporate donors. 

It is expected, that failure to pass this assault on private agriculture and the intent to export as much of the US food supply as possible, President Obama will incrementally implement the provisions of S.510 using Executive Orders and using the Food Czar’s office to issue edicts and mandates that we, as citizens of the sovereign states will be told, we must comply with.  No hell we don’t have to comply.   More

Quote of the Day: “Given sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.” — Woody Page, Denver sports columnist

S. 510 will make your food more expensive and less safe. It will drive many small farms out of business. The leaders of the “lame duck” Congress want to pass this falsely named “food safety” bill NEXT WEEK, but . . .

They’ll need 60 votes to break Sen. Coburn’s “hold” on the bill.

As recently as 2008, the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), a wholly owned subsidiary of the USDA, reported that there was virtually no grain stores left in the US.  Of the 24.1 million bushels in reserve, only 2.7 million bushels remained after the bulk of the grain stores were given for humanitarian relief. While some of the grain may have been used for humanitarian purposes, there is no evidence to support this contention. Furthermore, the use of the term humanitarian does not necessarily mean that the grain wasn’t sold, its just meant to condition public thinking into believing the grain was given away to hungry people.  I would bet that wasn’t the case at all.

There has been no effort by USDA or CCC to re-establish our strategic grain reserves.  The purpose of the CCC is to maintain a balanced supply of food commodities as a strategic backup in case of emergency and is charged with distributing those back up supplies to the population should they be needed. The strategic reserves which had been established as a result of the Great Depression were depleted in the 1980’s and USDA at that time announced it would not re-establish this back up and of course our current bio-tech pandering Ag secretary isn’t about to re-establish them either.  More

The food system isn’t broken: The government just won’t get the hell out of it

“Had this bill been about food safety, it would have contained provisions to expand and support family farms and ranches; it would have encouraged the entry into, and support of next generation farmers and ranchers. Instead of shoving Agenda 21 mandates on us  that come with titles such as “Best Farming” Best Land Management” and other idiotic WTO platitudes that are anything but the best practices, this bill would have encouraged gathering of generational knowledge about the land, the animals, crops, harvesting, food storage and preparation”

Why is it, every time the jackasses in the District of Criminals have run some program into the ground, squandered massive amounts of dollars while letting corporations write bills that benefit them and rape and rob the states, they always come out and say; “the system is broken”.  “We’ve got to fix the system, it is broken”.  It’s an emergency!  We have to do something right now!  And that is all quickly followed by one phony “crisis” after another as they try to scare the public into believing the “crisis” just magically and mysteriously appeared.  That’s just how bad the system is broken!  Like the magic egg contamination that just somehow appeared the week before they pushed S.510 the fake food safety bill onto the floor of the Senate.  How damn handy was that?!  Never mind that FDA knew about that way back last March when it was initially detected in Oregon.  A contamination that was allowed to reach epic proportions so that it could be used to scare you into thinking the only thing that could have saved us from these terrorist eggs….was S.510.  

The battle over S.510, The Fake Food Safety bill is not over.  At stake are the severely reduced numbers of family and independent farmers and ranchers who have historically been the backbone of our economy and who produced the safest and most abundant food supply in the world.  If the intent of S.510 was to preserve and protect our agricultural sector, I would support it.  The fact is, it is intended to industrialize agriculture and centralize it in the hands of multi-national corporations.  While USDA and FDA and Homeland Security and a host of other privately owned government corporations, harp about the centralization of the food supply and how this must be avoided, the truth is, they are intending to do just that. 

If this fake food safety bill had actually been written to deal with food safety in the US, it would have been centered on several key issues, none of which are addressed in the bill, and would not be focused on how to criminalize the ownership and control of agricultural property and the products derived from it for family and independent producers here in the US.  More

And this week’s award goes to: Mr. Paul McGraw head of Wisconsin DATCP

JACKASS ALERT!!

This week’s PPJ Gazette Jackass award goes to Mr. McGraw, head of Wisconsin’s Department of agriculture, trade, and consumer protection, or DATCP.

Mr. McGraw wants the residents of wisconsin to register any location in which livestock is kept.

Mr. McGraw has no rational reason for this; he just somehow got into the position of head of the department and the cooperative funding (bribery)  from the USDA just kept rolling in the door!  What’s a guy to do?

“Livestock” includes cattle and other bovine animals, swine, poultry, sheep, goats, horses and other equine animals, farm-raised deer and other cervids, gamebirds including pheasants, quail, wild turkeys, migrating waterfowl, pigeons, and exotic birds raised in captivity, bison, llamas and other camelids, ratites such as emus and ostriches, and fish.

Evidently, this is supposed to ensure that grandma’s pet goldfish doesn’t run amuck and unleash a dreaded disease on the state of Wisconsin. And, if a gaggle of migrating geese takes a dip in your pond before heading south for the winter, be prepared for a knock on the door by the Wisconsin DATCP enforcement division.

Yes, Mr. Mcgraw, for incredibly invasive policies and police-state tactics, you deserve this week’s PPJ Gazette Jackass award!

SWAT team raids of barbershops in Orlando, FL

BRASSCHECK TV
Did you hear the one about the Orlando
Sheriffs Office that sent armed SWAT teams into barbershops searching for people …barbering without a license?

No it’s not a joke and there’s no punch line.

No warrants either.

We can’t bring Wall Street to justice, but no problem terrorizing small business owners. 

The whole disgraceful abuse of armed force here.

Multi-national corporations destroying agriculture

1 Comment

This is an extremely important report on the interference and support of governments around the world, on behalf of mega corporations to end anything but industrialized food production.  This article deals with the meat trade, and it does not take much to see that the eradication of our cattle ranchers is on the horizon as multi-national corporations use government to run them out of business in favor of “globalism” a euphamistic term used to replace the term “fascism”.  S.510, the fake food safety bill now in the Senate, would seal the deal for US farmers and ranchers and hand our agricultural sector over to multi-national conglomerates.  Marti

 Live Link: Big Meat is growing in the South

GRAIN

People in the South appear to be eating a lot more meat these days. The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) says that per capita meat consumption in developing countries doubled between 1980 and 2005, while the consumption of eggs more than tripled. What happened? According to some, the main factor has been rising incomes in Asia. But the bigger factor is on the supply side. Agribusiness corporations, backed by massive subsidies and government support, have ramped up global industrial meat production to formidable levels over recent decades, with devastating consequences for people, animals and the environment. Much of this is now happening in the South, where a rising group of home-grown transnational corporations (TNCs) is joining ranks with the older firms from the North to push Big Meat into every corner of the planet.

What is fuelling the galloping market for meat in the countries of the South? The short answer is an abundance of cheap, factory-farmed meat, behind which stands an abundance of cheap feed. Today’s explosion in meat consumption in the South is really just round two of what happened years ago in the North, when companies began setting up factory farms and feedlots to convert mountains of subsidised cereals and oilseeds into animal protein for fast-food kitchens and supermarket aisles. The excess meat, from frozen chicken legs to cow entrails, was – and continues to be – dumped on poorer countries. More
