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.

The Durbin/DeLauro Food Safety Nightmare Returns: Now They come for your Supplements and Vitamins!

Leave a comment

strip bannernew-logo25Marti Oakley

______________________________________

DeLauro and Durbin are selling their new efforts to redefine supplements and vitamins so that only big pharma can manufacture and sell them.  They are calling it the Food Safety Act 2015.  Excuse me!  Didn’t we just do this fake food safety thing about five years ago?  The cost of this horrendously disastrous bill was billions.  Now Obama is asking for another 1.6 billion to further exacerbate the issue with a new round of fake food safety?

No, no, NOThese bills will do two things:  1) Create another monolithic, uncontrollable secretive agency that will work in favor of globalism and against American food producers, and 2) it will be used to redefine vitamins and supplements as a medicine so that this market sector can be monopolized by big pharma.

Depending on where you get your information, the supplement industry generates 28-30 billion a year in sales. BINGO! Now you know the real reason Durbin is so hell-bent on creating a new bureaucracy to facilitate the over-taking of the vitamin/supplement industry. This would make a wonderful gift to his pharmaceutical donors.

Its unfortunate that Dick Durbin and Rosa DeLauro express no concern over the injuries and deaths caused by pharmaceuticals and vaccines. These two items represent tens of thousands of deaths and permanent injuries each and every year. Instead, these two political sell-outs are working at a feverish pace to sequester the supplement industry and put it not only under control of some huge new bureaucracy, but squarely in the hands of big pharmaceutical companies.

Just imagine for a moment, if a supplement was advertised on your TV and the manufacturer said the supplement could cause homicidal, suicidal ideation. What if they went on to say the supplement could cause an increase in the likelihood of heart attack or stroke? Brain bleeds? Paralysis? Tremors? What if they admitted that the medication would cause damage to the brain? To internal organs? What if they said it could cause high blood pressure and diabetes? What if they said it could also cause death?

How long do you think that supplement would be on the market? Yet medications and vaccines are advertised hundreds of times a day; advertisements that admit the products are dangerous to take, if not outright deadly.

How a "Social Contract" is supposed to work.

The riveting 345 page Government Accounting Office bestseller is hot off the presses!

For those of us who wonder what S510 was really for in the first place, don’t worry – there is no mention of “harmonizing” the entire food system under one “super-stellar ultra-powerful” (SSUP) governmental organization to starve the little people into submission – the proposal presented is just to save money!

According to Representative Rosa De Lauro from Connecticut:

“… the study provides additional evidence for the need to consolidate food safety oversight into one independent agency.
“I have introduced legislation that would establish such an agency since 1999 and believe that this is a critical step toward preventing foodborne illnesses and protecting public health,”

I received a tip this morning with a curious request “Can you make an anti-NIB of Utah’s HB 365”.  I tried, I really did. The Title of this Bill looked very promising:

Federal Regulation of Local Agricultural Products


As one can see from the PDF there is no text, although apparently an Attorney (Peter Asplund) was paid to draft HB 365.


1      FEDERAL REGULATION OF LOCAL AGRICULTURAL
2       PRODUCTS
3      2011 GENERAL SESSION
4      STATE OF UTAH
5      Chief Sponsor: Bill Wright
6      Senate Sponsor: ____________

“However the major issue is the announced fees for the registration of conservation varieties in Sweden. The Agricultural Department (SJV) in Sweden has proposed a fee of 3000 SEK (approx 300 Euro) for the registration of a new conservation variety and an annual fee of 2000 SEK (approx 200 Euro).”

Two aspects of living intertwine their way into my life on a regular basis : good Art and great Farming. A feeding of the soul along with nurturing of ones body – the basis of a pretty good life.

For the first I can recommend Canadian Robert Bateman as a Master Artist of depth, breadth and originality. Be prepared to sink into his world of detail and, through further investigation, come away amazed.  Not only does he express beauty in his works, but he lives a beautiful life contributing to his community through development of programs designed to educate and protect the natural world he lives in.

For the Second I recommend the humble seed.  If the reader is not familiar with the technical definition of what a seed is, head on over to Wiki for the various -isms, -ologies or (goodness) even the -tyledons. I prefer to consider the seed a hope, a dream, a miracle. When carefully considered breeding is planned, the most glorious varieties of sustenance to gut and glory to the palate are achieved.

What instantly springs to mind combining the best of both Art and Farming are tomatoes. Specifically the Green Zebra created by Tom Wagner in the early ’80s. If one is a “foodie” of any level, the introduction of this open-pollinated cultivar cannot be discounted. Sought by home chefs and professionals alike, the Green Zebra entered into main stream culture at local markets and fine retailers such as Whole Foods. With its arrival, the populace realized that tomatoes could be more than red-globular-cardboard cut outs picked unripe, gassed and shipped to the masses at market to be sliced into rigid forms draped across insipid greens and deemed a “dinner salad”.

Food Safety Sneak Attack! Passed by Unanimous Consent

Farm Wars

How many times does Congress have to stick it to us before we realize that this body politic has no other function than to obey its corporate masters? If you think that you are being represented by these crooks, liars and thieves, then think again. The “Food Safety” bill is alive and has taken so many twists and turns to end up on the verge of becoming law of the land that nobody in his or her right mind could possibly believe that they are not going to cram this garbage down our collective throat no matter what.

And if you thought that good old Sen. Tom Coburn, who had been blocking the legislation would ultimately hold onto what little integrity he could muster and save the day by rescuing us from impending Food Safety doom, think no more. “He lifted his objection at the final moment” (Alexander Bolton), and this travesty of justice was passed in the Senate by unanimous consent.

So, I present to you, unequivocally, the final straw that broke the camel’s back for any sane person relying on Congress to be anything other than what it is; and that is a reeking cesspool of corruption and deceit. It would seem that the only thing to do now is bend over and…well, you know the rest. The House will, quite possibly place the final nail in the coffin on Tuesday.

Food Safety Bill Lives

Jamie Dupree

December 19, 2010 8:39 PM [S.510] A major food safety bill that had almost been given up for dead was suddenly revived in the Senate late on Sunday evening, and may be ready for House approval as early as Tuesday.

In a parliamentary move laid out on the Senate floor by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just after 7pm, the Senate took the food safety language that was passed as part of a stop-gap budget plan by the House, attached it to another House-passed bill and approved that by unanimous consent.  More

The FDA and USDA have routinely used the Federal Register to “update” the food safety system, always granting themselves far reaching authority and empowering themselves far beyond the intent of the original legislation that created these blights on America.”

And the Republicans joined right in!

I can only imgaine that the halls of the Senate were virtually awash in  “funding” from lobbyists as Republicans joined Democrats in the greatest assault on agriculture ever launched by our own government.

It seems there is no stopping the nefarious Harry Reid (D) NV.  With the country screaming no to the ill conceived S.510 Fake Food safety bill, Reid was successful in attaching the agricultural police state bill to a non-related bill and rammed this piece of garbage through the senate once again. 

And where were those Republicans who got the message from voters that things needed to change?  Well…they were right in there voting yes along with the Democrats.  Even Senator Tom Coburn (R) OK., jumped on the band wagon and voted to pass this attack on food production and supply into law.  Its just amazing what bags of corporate lobbying money  can do to politicians. 

S.510 Fake Food Safety bill was passed quickly late Sunday afternoon; a vote taken when the Senate could be assured few were watching or even aware that the vote on the criminalization of independent and family agriculture was taking place.  Like rats scurrying across the deck of a sinking ship, senators lined up one by one to vote against the best interest of their districts and in favor of the industrialization of agriculture. And like rats, they hurriedly scurried away before their presence was detected.  Rats are like that.  More

Corruption of congress continues: S.510/HR2749 loaded into a dead bill

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do the wrong thing.” — Michael Cloud

The so-called food safety bill passed. It took corrupt procedural tricks to do it.

We told you last week that the Senate made a mistake when they passed their version of the Food Safety Bill (S.510). Under the Constitution only the House can introduce revenue measures. The Senate trampled on this prerogative, and the House leadership wouldn’t stand for it.

Because of this . . .

We thought the so-called food safety bill was dead, and that we had won. Not so. Instead, we lost. Badly.

I’ll tell you how this happened, and what we can do about it. You’ll need to be motivated, smart, and intuitive to understand what’s been done to you, and that there IS a way to defeat these bastards.

So . . .

The “food safety” bill did NOT die as it should have because House leaders used what I’ll call a “Dead Shell Bill” to trick their way past their Constitutional and procedural problems. This “Dead Shell Bill,” HR 3082, was . . .

* Dead in the sense that it was a numbered bill that was never going to reach a final vote.
* An empty Shell because the Congressional leadership removed its original contents. More

S. 510, Codex, and The One-World Government Agenda

4 Comments

Live Link: Activist Post 
 

AP: S.510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has Codex Alimentarius written all over it. By now, this much should be apparent. Besides the cumbersome regulations accompanied with traceability provisions which are merely a cover for surveillance to prevent small or local farmers from providing food outside of the corporate system, the bill gives unprecedented power over food production to FDA, HHS, and DHS. 
Overbearing regulations aimed at small food producers that provide larger facilities with an unfair advantage are a hallmark of Codex guidelines. Likewise, the ability of the FDA, HHS, and DHS to implement various standards independently, or as a result of executive decrees, signals the coming Codex principles to the American food supply. This much has been well documented in recent publications.  More

Comment:  It appears we are caught in the middle of a nightmare from which we are unable to wake. While the president insists we must accept the global economy, we can see the devastating effects of this system of global banking, mounting famine and starvation, the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few and the massive decline in wages and the standard of living here in the US.  If this is what a global economy does, and if unlawful trade agreements are constructed to facilitate this, I say we reject it totally; it is killing us all.

S 510: Three Blind Mice and a Willful Act of Treason

___________________________________________________

S 510 moved through its Senate processes raising hoopla amongst the masses, misdirected from arguing the facts pursuant to substantive and procedural law by countless organizations and their respected attorneys. Whining and pouting were the order of the day, when I tendered the following; it was first edited by the unknowing and eventually deleted from the alert.

S 510 violates the substantive and procedural rights of natural persons by allowing illegal search and seizure without due process of law, requiring self incriminating recordkeeping in direct contrast to the provision of “being secure in your person and papers”.  It allows arrest without warrant for mere resistance of compliance officials.”

The claim was made that no one would understand it, a clear indication that none had read the bill, an act unperformed by many as it has finally come to light that in HR 2749 the fee schedule had been removed and reinstated in § 107 of S 510. More
