USDA’s APHIS assessment determined that while the plant meets the definition of a “noxious weed,” Kentucky bluegrass has not been found to cause impacts significant enough to warrant regulation at the Federal level

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is the center of one of government’s biggest shams. 

As a member of the National Invasive Species Council, the USDA has a mandate to   not authorize, fund, or carry out actions that it believes are likely to cause or promote the introduction or spread of invasive species in the United States or elsewhere.”

Your tax payer dollars are paying for the eradication of invasive species like stink bugs and salt cedar. 

Meanwhile, more of your tax dollars are funding the vast promotion of the ultimate invasive species: genetically engineered plants and cloned animals.  This includes USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) which was formerly CSREES, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), Economic Research Service (ERS), Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS).

Invasive species are any species not native to an ecosystem, and with an intentional or unintentional release, are likely to cause, or does cause, economic or environmental harm, or harm to human health.

Consider this when you see what the USDA has allowed to be field tested in the U.S.:  

  • Human genes in barley, corn, tobacco, rice, and sugarcane
  • Mouse genes in corn, along with human genes
  • Simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and Hepatitis B genes in corn
  • Rat genes in soybeans
  • Fruit fly genes in potatoes
  • Pig genes in corn
  • Cow genes in tobacco
  • Jellyfish genes in corn and rice
