S.510: Bribery, Graft and Conflicts of Interest

The Senate has convened and will vote again for cloture on S.510; at this moment Senator Tom Harkin is speaking about why the bill is so important.  Echoing the drama of Senator Durbin, Harkin alludes to the “sick and dying” people in this country as a result of food borne illness.  All the drama aside: neither Harkin, Durbin nor any other Senator will identify the true sources of food contamination arising from industrialized farming and ranching, self-inspecting processing plants, and contaminated food imports coming into the country uninspected. 

Regardless of all the flowery language, all the hyped up drama issuing from these Senators who have remained totally silent as the FDA, the agency they intend to unlawfully empower, has been the facilitator for hundreds of lethal and deadly pharmaceuticals allowed into the markets that cause physical damage and even death in thousands of cases.  With this in mind I doubt anyone could conclude that this bill is in reality about food safety, but is instead about the transfer of power to a corporate agency belonging to the Federal corporation; the intent of course is to also transfer blame for what will ensue once this overthrow of agriculture is completed.

Neither Senator nor any of the bills sponsors make any mention of the subjugation to unlawful trade and harmonization agreements or the underlying assaults on Constitutional rights.  Not one speaker can claim anything other than systems already in place as pertaining to food safety that are reiterated in the bill.   The focus of the bill is: More

Selective Memory Honorable Senator Durbin?


In another yet “factual” release, The most Honorable upon high Senator Dick Durbin made this statement in reference to the Guantanamo Bay Detainees movement to the state of Illinois:

But Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, has insisted the prisoners could be held “safely and securely.

“No one has ever escaped from one of these facilities,” Durbin told a press conference last month.”

One would beg to differ my esteemed friend. In no particular order one finds:

Two Inmates Escape From Central Texas Federal Prison Facility

Two Women Escape from California Federal Prison (affiliated with the Manson Case. Maybe that was not high profile enough?)

John Kenneth Leighnor, Jr.

Murderer Escapes La. Federal Prison

Federal Prison Escapee Captured

Ex-Johnston art dealer back in court on escape charge (He actually surrendered – much like the GITMO Gang would if they should escape I’m sure)

Andrade Case (reviewed by the United States Supreme Court)

In only the last instance could one give Senator Durbin a “pass” on knowing about  the situation.

After all as only the “Second-Highest Ranking Democrat”, he might never have heard of that obscure body of the Judicial Branch.

My Opinion?

You might want to remove your foot from your mouth Sir.
