Everything we do is said to be a “contract”, from simply buying a cup of coffee to purchasing access to the federal government. It is necessary to view every possible action we may undertake in our daily lives as being some form of contract, no matter how idiotic the example, in order for us to accept that our government itself is one big corporate contracting monstrosity that has less to do with governing the country constitutionally, than it does as a fiduciary profiteer. Key to that profiteering is privatization of what are to be tasks and services performed by the government. Simply put, creating and/or empowering a contracting corporation to perform tasks and services the government is prohibited from engaging in outside of the the enumerated powers in the Constitution.

1779142_741581802541570_1637925020_nLiving in a rural agricultural community, I have witnessed first hand the devastation to the land and water from industrialized agriculture.  The other thing I have noticed over the years, is the dwindling numbers and kinds of wildlife, both large and small.  It is not uncommon to see major fish kills in rivers, lakes and streams, dead birds and small animals in large numbers around the fields of gmo crops.  The continual spraying of toxic chemicals to grow what is widely recognized as crops not fit for human consumption, is not to be stopped.

It only gets worse from here

Having done several Whistleblower’s episodes on my blogtalk channel “TS Radio”, the news that Sonny Perdue will most likely be the new Secretary of Agriculture does not come as good news.  Perdue, who is funded and backed by major bio-piracy companies most notably Monsanto, and others who are in the process of overtaking agriculture for profit, should come as no surprise.

Scotts-Monsanto GM Grass Threatens National Forests, Rivers, Ranchers, and Farmers

Now biotech companies want local residents to pay the costs of clean-up! Action Alert!

Over a decade ago, Scotts partnered with Monsanto to market a GM bentgrass resistant to glyphosate (Roundup). It was planted next to the Malheur National Forest in test plots ostensibly controlled by Oregon State University. Unbeknownst to most people, it was also planted all over the US—in California, Iowa, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and seventeen other states.

It was supposed to be confined and controlled, but it very quickly escaped and spread out of the test plots in Oregon into Idaho, and crossbred with natural grasses to create new breeds that were also resistant to glyphosate. It clogged up irrigation ditches, threatening food crops and contaminating pasture-raised cattle with GMOs. In addition to the immediate threats to farmers and ranchers, grass seed—which is among Oregon’s top five commodities—is now under threat.

Initially, Scotts-Monsanto tried to stop the spread and clean up the contamination. But it was unable to do so because the original bentgrass (and now the other grasses it cross-pollinated with) are glyphosate-resistant. More toxic herbicides have been brought in to try to keep irrigation ditches clear, and to stop the grasses from clogging and eventually killing waterways important to wildlife and humans.

Now, according to The Oregonian, Scotts-Monsanto is walking away from the monster it created, leaving farmers, ranchers, wildlife, and eventually the fishing industry (if it spreads to the Columbia River) to deal with it. The current conundrum is that herbicides necessary to kill the invasive GM grasses are toxic to aquatic life, including fish. Soon the grasses will become resistant to even the most toxic chemicals, and nothing will eradicate the invasive grasses but heavy equipment.

Worst of all, the effects of GM products replacing natural grasses and plants on wildlife were completely predictable.

Scotts-Monsanto was fined $500,000, the maximum penalty under the Plant Protection Act, and agreed never to sell GM bentgrass. In addition, the companies were ordered to eradicate the GM nuisance in irrigation districts so farmers could continue farming.

But the federal government is apparently stepping in to help Scotts-Monsanto avoid liability. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently deregulated the GM grass, a move that shifts the burden of controlling GM bentgrass from Scotts-Monsanto to local landowners and American taxpayers.

The law is clear: if a plant poses a risk, the USDA is not to deregulate it. Scotts-Monsanto has already signed an agreement not to sell the product. So why is the USDA violating the law and deregulating GM bentgrass? Why would Scotts-Monsanto ask that it be deregulated when it has agreed not to sell it? It may be because GM bentgrass has been planted all over the United States, and when it’s discovered that the Oregon scenario is happening in every state, Scotts-Monsanto can pin it on the government and the taxpayers avoiding responsibility for costly clean-ups.

There are precedents for farmers and consumers holding biotech companies legally accountable in these scenarios. Midwestern corn growers filed a class-action lawsuit against Syngenta last year, claiming the company’s GM corn contaminated their crops and cost them billions in international sales. In 2011, Bayer paid $750 million to Southern rice growers in a similar scenario.

We hope justice is done in Oregon, and the parties responsible for this mess are forced to clean it up.

Action Alert! Tell the USDA to stop offering legal liability protection to biotech companies. Please send your message immediately.

For Decades, the USDA Was Black Farmers’ Worst Enemy….And for most of them, things haven’t changed

**Note: The article from “YES” magazine, referred to in this article, was dated July 6, 2016. Just two days before farmers from 18 states protested the USDA and its discriminatory practices in front of the Supreme Court. The article was a carefully timed and crafted propaganda piece. All information, data and statistics were obviously provided by USDA and simply compiled to make it appear that legitimate research had been done, when obviously, it had not.
As for the protest, I was left wondering just where all these civil rights icons were? What? No Jesse Jackson? No Al Sharpton? Where the hell was the NAACP?? (BIG)Blacks in Government? No?

eddieSometimes while I am researching one thing, I come across valuable information on another topic. This was the case recently when an article in Yes! Magazine caught my eye.  Since last year I have been doing Whistleblowers! broadcasts which included black farmers discriminated against by USDA and they have a very different story to tell than the one relayed in YES!. And, they have the documents to back up what they have to say about their treatment at the hands of USDA..

These farmers never asked for special treatment. They are demanding only to be treated with as much respect, and with access to the same programs as others are.

The title “For Decades, the USDA Was Black Farmers’ Worst Enemy. Here’s How It Became an Ally” nearly made my head explode. I wouldn’t swear to it, but I think at that point lightening sparked here in my office. I read the article with interest, but realized it was a propaganda piece, carefully constructed with information most likely provided directly by interests at the USDA. Obviously no actual research had been done. Had it been done, the article would have read quite differently and would have linked to relevant documents and resources. There were none. More

The story of Eddie and Dorothy Wise-The final chapter of Willie Lynch and The Last Plantation

The New Nat Turner” and “The New Harriet Tubman”

new-logo25by: “King Solomon”

July 7, 2016

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1978754_644420168926779_1732856343_nOn July 8, 2016, thousands of Americans will gather in front of The Supreme Court in Washington D.C.-the faces will be of black, white, red and brown that reflect the Black Farmers, White Women Farmers, Native American Farmers and Hispanic Farmers alike.

This day will mark the day when Eddie Wise and Dorothy Wise will take a stand for justice.

Oh, but this is not just a few disgruntled people looking to insight a riot;  these are two Americans that are America. One a retired Green Beret and the other a retired Howard University grant manager together they are petitioning the nation’s highest court to overturn The Dred Scott Decision.

Dred Scott was a slave that petitioned the Supreme Court for his rights in 1857. Alarming enough, the nation’s highest court opined that a black person does not have the capacity to sue in federal courts, basically regulating his or her mere existence to a regular article of merchandise similar to a pig or cow in a stockyard for auction. We all know the story of Nat Turner and Harriet Tubman, one revolted on a plantation in Virginia, and the other led between 300 and 500 slaves to freedom.

Nat Turner (October 2, 1800 – November 11, 1831) was an enslaved African American who led a rebellion of slaves and free blacks in Southampton County, Virginia on August 21, 1831, that resulted in the deaths of 55 to 65 white people. In retaliation, enraged white militias and mobs killed more than 200 black people in the course of putting down the rebellion.

Now fast forward to 2016, Eddie Wise is “The New Nat Turner.” Instead of bloodshed, Eddie Wise will use the “Olive Branches” to denounce the Doctrine of Willie Lynch, a doctrine still employed by the USDA and the Department of Justice against Socially Disadvantaged Farmers.

The USDA and the Department of Justice has been denying the constitutional rights of Socially Disadvantaged Farmers by denying them the right to a formal hearing on the merits while simultaneously illegally foreclosing on farms that Congress placed a moratorium on. If this was not enough, the disciples of Willie Lynch have been using the treasury to offset the social security and any qualified federal monies payable to affected farmers and not giving a day for a hearing to discuss these unlawful tactics. The retired Green Beret has searched deep into his 73 year old heart to bring the best fight of his life and questions the Supreme Court must answer.

Not to be forgotten, Harriet Tubman has the resolve that could move mountains or reduce them to mole hills. Dorothy Wise is “The New Harriet Tubman,” together with her husband, this retired grant manager will help lead Black Farmers to freedom. With the support of The American Agriculturalist Association, Black Farmers have been informed on how to get the justice that has long eluded them. Black Farmers have responded by filing over 1,000 motions of declaratory judgments in the District Court of The District of Columbia. Ironically, the judicial system that has long and unlawfully oppressed the people of color are preparing for this uprising. The District Judge has failed to docket these motions to this date.

On July 8, 2016 at 8am, answer the call, let’s rewrite the final chapter of the Willie Lynch Doctrine and demand justice from the nation’s highest court. This time the “Wise Tale” will do the writing of the history and your voice is required to be a story in history.

And now a word or two from Ozzie Thinker…..

ozziethinker

Zika-virusThe Zika virus “outbreak” in Brazil has populated recent headlines in the Mainstream (I am informed, as I rarely see any value in checking out tainted sources). The popular shortlist culprit in the alternative Mainstream (mostly sponsored by the same supporters of the Mainstream) is Bill Gates’ genetically modified mosquitos. As Zika virus was first noted in the 1940’s, unless Gates infected the planet by time portal, his freaky mosquitos (presuming they exist) are not the culprit unless what is being labelled “Zika virus” is actually something else. I will continually stress, until I leave this great planet that all (and not some) viruses are caused by forms of inorganic or organic pollution. In the case organic, it often turns out various forms of faeces or other bodily waste products are pollutants. Our bodies, any bodies deal with invading matter in three ways. Firstly they produce…
