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

Our guest this evening is Kordel Davis and Waymon Henson

Kordel is originally from Reading, Pennsylvania. He is currently a student at Rutgers University. In 2018 producers from Dateline NBC connected Kordel with the USDA and Coalition of Minority Employees. In May of 2018 Kordel wrote the paper “USDA Discrimination and the Effects on Food Systems and Food Security” under Dr. Xenia Morin at Rutgers University.

Kordel was one of the over seventy farmers, advocates, and researchers to sign their name to the letter to Elizabeth Warren. He has since created a video posted to YouTube regarding the letter entitled “USDA Discrimination, Elizabeth Warren, and The Future,” which has caught the attention of documentary creators and helped to spur new national interest in the Black farmers movement. Kordel wishes to continue to be a powerful voice for displaced farmers in the future.

Waymon Henderson is a Black farmer documentary, researcher & publisher. He has earned degrees in theology and psychology is licensed as a psychologist and marriage and family therapist in Texas. His history with the Black farmer cause extends back to 1994 when he began to consult with farmers and their legal counsel. He has been affiliated with the Black Farmers and Agriculturalists Association in Tillery, NC since 2005 and currently is a board member. He has two published articles in the area of Black farmers and land loss and has presented at international, national, state, and regional conferences on racism, the USDA, and Black land loss. His special area of interest is the impact on the health and well being of farmers and families when dealing with the USDA and DOJ. He and Shoun Hill partnered on the Black farmer documentary beginning in 2018 and will complete it in late 2019.

A Foreign Corporation Claiming Eminent Domain?

7 Comments

Marti —

You may have already heard, but TransCanada just filed new eminent domain claims in court against 90 Nebraska family farmers and ranchers — including my family — who refuse to give up our land for this foreign corporation’s Keystone XL tarsands export pipeline. [1]

TransCanada has been bullying my family and other Nebraska landowners for the past ten years, seeking land that’s been in our families for generations for a pipeline that threatens our farms, our water, and our climate. Now this foreign corporation has filed a lawsuit against my family, and dozens of other farming and ranching families, and intends to abuse eminent domain to take our land for KXL against our wishes.

We have less than a month from today to respond in court, and oppose TransCanada’s eminent domain lawsuits. We need your support in this moment more than ever before.

Give $25 or what you can to support landowners fighting TransCanada’s new eminent domain lawsuits to push KXL through our farms and ranches.

TransCanada is attempting to make some waves and put up a smokescreen to make investors think KXL is a “green-light,” when there remain serious obstacles in this pipeline’s path. The company has said it plans to engage in “pre-construction” activities along the proposed route for KXL, like clearing trees.

Landowners like my family have stood together for ten years, and we intend to fight these new eminent domain lawsuits. Bold supporters like you have also stood with the landowners during this decade-long fight, and we thank you.

Donate to Nebraska landowners’ legal defense against TransCanada’s eminent domain lawsuits for Keystone XL.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us.

Jeanne Crumly, Nebraska landowner in Holt County

Brasscheck TV: How Corporations Ruined Food (Food Industry Documentary) – Real Stories

Real Stories

When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that
we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods.
But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food
system was co-opted by corporate forces whose
interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy,
sustainably-produced food. Fortunately for
America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture
of California in the late 1960s and early 1970s,
where a group of political anti-corporate protesters–led
by Alice Waters–voiced their dissent by creating
a food chain outside of the conventional system.
The unintended result was the birth of a vital
local-sustainable-organic food movement which has
brought back taste and variety to our tables.
FOOD FIGHT is a fascinating look at how American agricultural
policy and food culture developed in the
20th century, and how the California food movement has
created a counter-revolution against
big agribusiness.

Genetically mutated bacteria are being put into over 6,000 foods

2 Comments

You can’t make this stuff up…

Genetically mutated bacteria are being put into over 6,000 foods

you and I grab at the grocery store each week.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg—the full story can be found here.

This disgusting ingredient accounts for as much as 75 percent

of adverse reactions to food additives according to some reports.

Even seizures and deaths have been blamed on it.

You should never eat it… or ANY foods like it.

Corporate “scientists” have taken to genetic modification to disgusting

new levels… All in the name of greed.

The ramifications for our society—and for the human race are beyond comprehension…

And that’s why I made a documentary video series exposing the

truth about this hazard that threatens our very existence as a species.

You can register to watch it for free here—the first episode goes live on

February 26!

Sincerely,

The Revealed Team

P.S. I just wanted to take a second and say, “Thank you.”

Subscribers like you are the reason I am able to pursue my

passion for film-making and exposing the truth… SO:

As my way of saying “thanks” – I’m opening up an entire

new docu-series for you… Register for it here!

USDA Makes GMOs Disappear

It’s official: the “mandatory” GMO labeling rule will obscure more than it makes transparent. Action Alert!

The USDA has released its final GMO labeling rule, and it’s not good. As we feared when the agency released its proposal earlier this year, the so-called GMO labeling law will apply only to a narrow set of foods. Congress and the USDA have offered a number of loopholes and exemptions to food companies, undermining any semblance of a consumer’s right to know. It’s as if the USDA asked the food industry to write the rule themselves.

The problems start right at the foundation. The agency has decided to use the term “bioengineered”—a term many Americans may not be familiar with—rather than GMO. When the proposal was released, we pointed out that this is straight out of an Orwellian playbook. Many Americans know the term “GMO” and can connect it to the labeling debate—so the government decides to use a different term that sounds more innocuous. If the government was actually concerned with communicating information clearly to consumers, they would simply use the term “GMO” and not other terminology with which Americans may not be familiar.

The problems continue with the definition of “bioengineered.” The final rule defines bioengineered as a food that 1) contains genetic material that has been modified through in vitro recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) techniques and 2) for which the modification could not otherwise be obtained through conventional breeding or found in nature”—essentially, combining DNA from two different sources, usually two different organisms.
