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

Whistleblowers! The USDA Hour, is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the annual Whistleblowers! Summit.

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

Join Lawrence and Marti this evening as they host a roundtable discussion concerning the failure of most candidates to fairly address the issues of discrimination against Black farmers that has gone on for decades within the USDA.  At issue is the Biden campaign lack of systemic solution or approach to changing and correcting the long standing, well documented abuses that have transpired.

Joining the show will be Michael Stoval, Julian Hishaw and Waymon Hinson.

Lawrence Lucas

Mr. Lucas was the former President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees, beginning in 1994.  His career as a government employee began as a political appointee during the Carter Administration. He retired after 32 years of service.

Michael Stoval

Joining him will be Michael Stoval of Alabama who has been instrumental in bringing attention to the institutional failures of the USDA and DOJ.  Mr Stovel will talk about the continuing neglect and worsening of agency failures within the USDA that has worsened over the years under many administrations, including the former Obama and now current, Trump administration.

Waymon Hinson 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. Mr. Hinson will also be discussing the release of the new documentary on Black farmers.

Julian Hishaw

In 2012, six years after she graduated, Hishaw launched Family Agriculture Resource Management Services (FARMS), an organization that helps Black farmers, and all farmers from historically disadvantaged groups, in Southeastern states retain ownership of their land. Now, she spends her days visiting farmers in the Southeast who face losing their property and assets due to mounting debt.

 

Mercury exposure in the oceans is getting worse, causing mercury levels in seafood to rise

1 Comment

SOURCE:  Natural News

(Natural News) Researchers from Harvard University are suggesting that the levels of methylmercury in fish such as swordfish, cod and Atlantic bluefin tuna have been rising since at least the 197os.

Methylmercury is an organic and highly toxic form of mercury. When people suffer from mercury poisoning, it is usually from ingesting large amounts of methylmercury. One source of methylmercury is seafood.

Many fish are exposed to methylmercury through their diet. Algae and other forms of aquatic life at the bottom of the food chain absorb organic methylmercury. Fish and other aquatic organisms that consume algae absorb this poison and then, when larger fish at the top of the food chain eat those fish, they continue to accumulate methylmercury.

The presence of methylmercury in seafood is very concerning. According to different research, around 82 percent of methylmercury exposure in the United States comes from consuming seafood. (Related: Vaccine ingredient warning: Ethyl mercury in vaccines 50 times more toxic than methyl mercury in fish.)

Methylmercury levels depend on the food that predatory fish eat

Judges strike down ‘ag-gag’ laws for violating the First Amendment

Leave a comment

SOURCE:  Alternet.org

On January 22, 2020, a federal judge struck down the nation’s oldest “ag-gag” law, the latest in a series of victories against these laws and in favor of the First Amendment right to seek the truth about how animal agribusinesses treat the animals in their care. Kansas’s Farm Animal and Field Crop and Research Facilities Protection Act, passed in 1990, criminalized a wide range of conduct related to animal facilities, most importantly, entering an animal facility not open to the public with the intent to take photographs or recordings.

Across the U.S., many states seeking to conceal the inherent cruelty of animal agriculture from the general public have passed laws like the Kansas statute targeting whistleblowers and undercover investigators. These laws, commonly known as “ag-gag” laws, prevent us from gaining access to and exposing the widespread cruel (yet standard) treatment of farm animals. Without these critical undercover investigations, the public would effectively be kept from learning about the cruelty involved in daily factory farming practices.

States Ban Sales of Seeds – Meat Packers Closed – Food Shutdown

Even as the UN warns of impending food shortages, states are banning the sale of seeds and garden tools to “help” stop the coronavirus. Meat packers also are shutdown, and ranchers are warning they have a market for neither cattle nor hogs. Start growing your own food now!

How Steve Hixon fought Monsanto

1 Comment

By Debbie Coffey

This is in memory of our friend, Steve Hixon, who was one of the last “seed cleaners” in the United States.

Steve was a real American hero.  He stood up against Monsanto for many years.  He spoke out.  He informed the public about the ways that agricultural technology companies had appropriated public resources and filed patents from seed germ plasm from (taxpayer funded) public universities.

Seed cleaners played an important role in helping farmers save their seeds for planting the next year.  They have equipment that sifts the plant materials and “clean” it so that the seeds are separated out and can be given back to farmers to use the next season (at less cost than Monsanto’s seeds).  Steve designed and built several versions of the seed cleaning machine he used.  Seed cleaners have been nearly wiped out since the introduction of GMO proprietary seeds.

The Monsanto Hearings were public tribunals where people presented testimony regarding the harmful impact that the Monsanto corporation has had on America’s food, farms, communities, and ecosystems. 

You can see Steve speak at the Monsanto hearings HERE.

Steve Hixon tried to protect American farmers and our food.  More than that, Steve was a great friend, one of the “good guys” and an American hero.  He will be missed.

America’s Homeless Middle Class

by stuartbramhall

How Poor People Survive in the USA

DW (2019)

Film Review

This documentary is about homeless members of middle class America whose wages are too low to cover rent. Filmmakers visit San Diego, Los Angeles, Richmond Virginia, Appalachia and Waco Texas.

In San Diego they film a parking lot in which thirty people working as Uber drivers, security guards, secretaries, cleaners, carers and computer technicians sleep in their cars overnight. A charity provides them with portapotties, a water point, and an open air kitchen facility. One of the carers who sleeps there works nine hour days seven days a week.

In Los Angeles, which filmmakers refer to as the homeless capitol of the US (with 59,000 homeless), the documentary profiles a full time volunteer who builds wooden tiny houses (which have been legally banned by the city council) for people currently living tents.

In Richmond, filmmakers follow local sheriffs carrying out an eviction at gunpoint. They also visit one of the budget motels that have sprung up in the Richmond outskirts due to the city’s high number of evictions.*

In Appalachia, they visit one of the poorest counties in the nation, where volunteers run a daily food truck to distribute food to the area’s children. They also profile a military-style field hospital that provides once-a-year medical and dental treatment for the uninsured. The field hospital, held on a local sports field, is funded by a national charity and staffed by volunteer health providers.

In Waco, the filmmakers visit a church program that recruits candidates from all over the US to pay 60 dollars to experience sleeping rough first hand.


*In Virginia, a landlord can legally evict a tenant once their rent is five days past due. More

Whistleblower’s is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Annual Whistleblower’s Summit  in Washington D.C.

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

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

Published on Nov 17, 2017

 

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

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

Leave a comment

Alliance for Natural Health USA

The Pulse of Natural Health Newsletter

Stay informed about what is hot in Washington and the states about natural health

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.

Industrial Agriculture: The Truth About Where Your Meat Comes From

The Most Revolutionary Act

Uncensored updates on world events, economics, the environment and medicine

Land of Hope and Glory UK Earthlings Documentary

Surge (2017)

Film Review

This is a documentary about the brutal conditions under which factory farmed animals are raised in the UK, Australia and the US. This type of footage is extremely rare because Food Inc makes every effort to conceal the disgusting conditions under which our meat is produced.

Factory farmed pigs and chickens seem to fare the worst. Even though pigs are as intelligent and emotionally complex as dogs, they are raised in extremely confining cages and forced to lie in their own feces, as well as being routinely tortured and beaten by their keepers. Pigs, like most other factory farmed animals, are fed massive doses of antibiotics (contributing to antibody resistance and the rise of “superbugs”) while continual exposure to feces makes factory farmed meat a major source of food borne illness.

Chickens and more than 90% of ducks and turkeys are also crowded into pens. In chickens raised for meat, 45% suffer painful fractures because their specially bred bodies are too heavy for their skeleton.

What seems most consistent among all factory farmed animals (besides their continual exposure to feces) are the inhumane conditions under which they are killed. Although most jurisdictions require them to be asphyxiated or electrically stunned prior to slaughter, abattoir personnel are rushed and poorly trained. As the film clearly shows, many animals are still alive when they’re butchered.

Food Crisis In The Making: Farm Bankruptcies Reach Horrifying Levels

1 Comment

 

 

 

By Mac Slavo

We are amidst a food crisis.  Farms in the United States Midwest are filing for chapter 12 bankruptcy at an alarming rate.  And many are saying president Donald Trump’s trade war is taking the most blame.

We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so. The trade war was a bad idea and everyday average Americans are footing the bill for this asinine policy of tariffs.  Now, the food supply could be in jeopardy because of political posturing and that will not bode well for already cash-strapped American families.

A total of 84 farms in the upper Midwest filed for bankruptcy between July 2017 and June 2018, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. That’s more than double the number of Chapter 12 filings during the same period in 2013 and 2014 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, reported Vox.

Farms that produce corn, soybeans, milk, and beef were all suffering due to low global demand and low prices before the trade war, according to economists, but president Trump’s trade war is making the problem even worse by exacerbating the weaknesses in the American economy. China has retaliated against the tariffs by slapping billions of dollars worth of tariffs on United States agriculture exports in response to Trump’s tariffs on Chinese products. Other countries, including Canada, have also added duties to US agriculture products in response to Trump’s tariffs on all imported steel and aluminum.

Black Farmers bring suit against the State of Georgia for Voting Rights violations

THE BATTLE LINES HAVE BEEN DRAWN AS BLACK FARMERS CHALLENGE THE STATE OF GEORGIA AND SECRETARY OF STATE BRIAN KEMP OVER VOTING RIGHTS FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS IN PREDOMINANTLY BLACK COUNTIES AND PRECINCTS IN GEORGIA.


August 21, 2018


 Black Farmers from south Georgia filed suit against the State of Georgia and Secretary of State Brian Kemp alleging violations of section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, among several claims. The Black Farmers assert that the State of Georgia and The Secretary of State have failed to enforce federal laws and maintain uniformity of legal issues among all the counties that make up the state. In particular, the state and secretary have been alleged, to what amounts to putting on a charade, political gerrymandering. It is without question that the state and secretary knows counties must have preclearance from the Department of Justice or the United States District Court in Washington, D.C. before the counties can shut down polling locations or precincts in predominantly African American counties or precincts.

 However, this will be a showdown of epic proportions. Also named in the petition are The National Republican Committee, The National Democratic Committee, The NAACP, The ACLU, The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, The State Republican Committee and The State Democratic Committee. The Black Farmers are united and have been fighting the USDA for years on similar civil rights issues. An interesting correlation has been drawn by the farmers and the history of questionable stances on civil rights issues by now Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue as former governor of the State of Georgia and his continued stance of denying Black Farmers the right to be heard at the administrative level.

IN RE: DEADLINE GEORGIA- DEMOCRATIC GUBERNATORIAL NOMINEE STACEY ABRAMS V. THE GOP- HOW THE USDA’S STORIED HISTORY OF DISCRIMINATION COULD BE THE DECIDING FACTOR ON WHO BECOMES THE NEXT GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA.

JUNE 25, 2018

 There is no doubt that the Republican Party is aware of the historical significance of the nomination of Stacey Abrams and her bid to become the first Black Female Governor in the United States. With this nomination, the eyes of the country will be hanging on her every word in regards to policy and civil rights. The Democrats are amassing a war chest for her bid to become the next governor of Georgia, but the Republicans will not be outdone. However, the one factor, that could be the deciding factor, is how Stacey Abrams tackles the issues of Socially Disadvantaged Farmers.

  Socially Disadvantaged Farmers are legally defined as a protected class, to include Black Farmers, Hispanic Farmers, Indian Farmers and White Women. This protected class will be the deciding factor on if Georgia remains a red state or will it be the keystone of the crown jewel that the Dems. are hoping for in November. It is without controversy that former Georgia Governor and current Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, inherited an absolute mess at the USDA, an agency that is truly out of control and in desperate need of reform.

Black Farmers and Small Farmers Protesting Dollar General and The USDA for Unfair Practices and Filing a Historical Suit Next Wednesday
Location: 201 West Broad Avenue, Albany, GA 31701
Date (and Time): Wednesday, April 25, 2018 (at 10 am.)
On Wednesday, April 25, 2018, the federal courthouse in Albany, Georgia, will be the very location, where a historic and momentous occasion is to take place. A national boycott – against the variety store, Dollar General, Farmers National Bank, CapStar Bank, among other businesses – will commence with the expressed desire to bring attention to the abuse of power committed by Dollar General heirs, Steve and Jay Turner, along with federal judges.
Also, this demonstration will be just one side of the plans for that day. As 1,000 people are expected to appear for this event, which will include a group of African-American farmers, a lawsuit will be filed against the USDA for continued discrimination.
The Georgia Chapter of the African-American Agriculturalist Association’s main complaint is the Secretary of Agriculture at the USDA is not allowing hearings from African-American farmers like he does their Caucasian counterparts.  So, they are desiring to see change and hope that justice will prevail.
In an alliance with the Georgia Chapter of the African-American Agriculturalist Association, multiple civil rights groups, and other groups representing small farmers, the protest is being organized by the Cowtown Foundation Inc., a Tennessee Corporation that specializes in the rights of minority farmers at the administrative level.

The Geoengineering End Game

1 Comment

Source:  Activist Post

By Ethan Jacobs, J.D.

Years of research have revealed that the purpose of ongoing international geoengineering operations is to control the weather to create droughts and artificial scarcity of water and food (planned “problem”).  From the resulting global crisis, chaos and fear (planned “reaction”) of people not having adequate water and food due to “climate change,” a totalitarian world government (planned “solution”) will be perpetrated under the veil of “sustainable development” (See United Nations’ Agenda 21 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development).  Speaking of year 2030:

According to UN-endorsed projections, global demand for fresh water will exceed supply by 40% in 2030, thanks to a combination of climate change, human action and population growth.

The secondary purpose of chemtrails is to make the population sick by causing individuals to ingesting toxins such as aluminum and possibly viruses.

The Geoengineered Cape Town Drought

The Geoengineered Cape Town Drought is a test-run, a preview of what the rest of us can expect in the coming years.

Day Zero is looming for Cape Town.  According to the latest estimates May 11th is when the city’s water supply will be turned off, leaving four million residents to line up for water rations at one of 200 points across the city.

Cape Town is in the middle of an unprecedented drought and rainfall has been far below expected levels for the past three years. Residents are being asked to limit use to 50 liters a day (13.2 gallons), which is less than a third of the average daily water use in Britain.

In 2013, farmers in South Africa contacted Geoengineeringwatch.com and reported that geoengineering was decimating their land, stating:

Our air is acrid and dry and my crops have failed. My animals are on their last legs. We are being forced to take out loans via the Landbank, thus enslaving us and also forcing us to buy GMO seeds. The North West has been declared a Disaster Area.

NASA satellite images and videos posted by concerned individuals also confirm that South Africa is a target of intense geoengineering.

Without any mention of geoengineering, National Geographic states that “climate change” may have exacerbated Cape Town’s drought and warns that much of the world is at risk of a similar situation.  Mexico City, Melbourne, Jakarta, Sao Paulo, and California are listed as potential water shortage victims of “climate change.”

“Every stream on public lands grazed by livestock is polluted and shows a huge surge in E. coli bacterial contamination during the grazing season,” says Marvel. “No wonder we can’t drink the water.”

Marvel, who retired from WWP last year, spent two decades haranguing and suing the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the government bodies that are supposed to regulate ranching on the public domain. “Forest Service and BLM staffers see their job as the protection and enabling of ranchers. They are the epitome of what is meant by agency capture.”

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

The DC District Court, Judge Paul Friedman, has devised a plan with the Former Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to defraud Taxpayers out of $400,000,000. The USDA entered into a deal to settle claims against Socially Disadvantaged Farmers. However, the Agency, USDOJ and Judge Friedman have breached the contract agreement. In short, there is $400,000,000 that is left from Congressional Funds that was appropriated for this settlement. More

The Foods We Consume Might Actually Be Killing Us

2 Comments

 

Dr. John Reizer

According to many health care experts, it’s getting increasingly difficult to stay healthy due to the types of foods we continue to consume as a society.

Food additives such as Aspartame and MSG (Monosodium glutamate) are believed by many to cause irreparable harm to human beings. Despite the large number of warnings coming from scientists and doctors, large corporations continue to oversee the lacing of our foodstuffs with harmful chemicals.

Aspartame, a controversial artificial sweetener, has been classified by some doctors and medical researchers as a neuro-excitotoxin capable of causing harmful lesions within the human nervous system. Russell Blaylock, a retired neurosurgeon and former professor at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, is one of the physicians that has publicly stated his views about the dangers of this product.

Aspartame was introduced into food products and soft drinks, around the world, by the pharmaceutical company, G.D. Searle during the same time frame that Donald Rumsfeld, former Defense Secretary of the United States, was the company’s acting CEO. Later, Searle was taken over by Monsanto, a corporation believed by many to have very close ties to the CIA.

Why the State of Jefferson is ready to split from the Great Late State of California.

Chuck Frank

(USA Today) “A farmer faces trial in federal court this summer and a $2.8 million fine for failing to get a permit to plow his field and plant wheat in Tehama County, California…compliments of the (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) “  But where’s the Trump card?

So if the feds can permit everything from plowing to taking a hike into a public National Forest, what will be next?   Will you need a permit to take your car to Yosemite if you don’t take a tour bus? Will you need a permit to rototill your own garden plot?  Hello!  It all comes down to more regulations meant for control and funneling a lot more money into glorified welfare jobs while billions are going to government workers and the red left.
If the State of Jefferson actually becomes a realty and those breakaway counties address the never ending problem of fat bureaucrats on the take, along with the excessive ordinances and code meltdowns that have spread like a cancer all over California, then it will have succeeded.  The State of Jefferson will need to be a state that will essentially be “out of the box” and raw milk will be good for the soul.  Also, safe vaccines, alternative medicine and treatments will need to be a major factor in the State’s Constitutional framework as well.  Self sufficiency such as ones own water, healthy foods and non GMO farming should also be a huge consideration and a movement all to its own.

  The State of Jefferson, in my way of thinking, would represent an entirely new platform that would flip pseudo educators and radical politicos on their heads.  The new university system would far surpass other educational institutions and their politicized curriculum’s and would leave the red left and Marxists in the dust to where students would be free of progressive propaganda and embrace a new society having a moral compass which would once again be based upon standard norms such as individual freedoms, property rights, no room for asset forfeitures of real property, mercy, forgiveness, love, do unto others and you would have them do unto you, and a government that is truly for and by the people,  while making an exit
from a pseudo and tyrannical gestapo state resurrected by the European Union.  Thank the banking elite in Brussels, Belgium. 

  But if the State of Jefferson rises to their chosen call and becomes another new state, may it shine as a light to the world but also as an example for the rest of the states to follow.  This movement could be America’s only chance to once again embrace liberty which is presently being spearheaded by those patriots of Northern California who wish to combine over twenty counties into the new free State of Jefferson.

Attack of the “stakeholders”…The Corporate Coup that overthrew what was left of the Republic

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.
