OPINION

The US food system is rigged in favor of Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, DuPont and the other genetically modified seed manufacturers , their BigAgra confederates, USDA head Tom Vilsack, and the FDA’  “Food Czar,” Michael Taylor, a former Monsanto employee.

Taylor, the senior advisor to the Commissioner of Food and Drug Administration, (DHHS) and strong supporter of  Codex Alimentarius, worked for a law firm hired by Monsanto that drafted and submitted the policy brief/outline justifying GMO food for approval to the USDA.  GMO foods were later introduced into the US food system as “equivalent to normal foods,” or words to that effect, with no labeling requirements  during the 1990’s.

The multi-national GM seed manufacturers refused to label GMO products because (1) they knew liability might consume them if links were ever established that their  GM food harmed humans  and (2) because few consumers would buy their products if a GM label was on the package.

Therefore, neither they, the WHO, FAO, FDA, nor the so-called “international food standard”—Codex Alimentarius —are about food or food safety. 

So if not that, what?  

(A)  Elite profit, monopoly, control, and power over the of the planet’s food, fiber, water, minerals, land (a global grab is underway), money (the economic shutdown is deliberate), jobs, hope, and humans,. More

I can’t buy local: I don’t live in China!

“Most people have the idea that food in our grocery stores just magically appears; maybe it just pops up out of the floors or drops down from secret store rooms in the ceilings.”

Buy local? Ok! I will do that!  Wait…..this says product of China, product of Brazil, product of Mexico, product of Egypt, Guatemala, Argentina ………where is the stuff produced in the US?  How am I supposed to buy local to support my local economy when there is nothing here that was produced locally or even in the United States?  And this stuff over here?  It just says “distributed by” a company in the US and I have no idea where the heck it came from.  

In what I see as a sick joke mouthed by sick individuals in our government, the call has gone out to “buy local!  Know your farmer!”  I know the farmers in this area but they are being regulated and pressured out of business with the passage of the fake food safety bill in the senate.  Maybe I should say by one senator…..”Dirty Harry” Reid.  It was his one, unanimous vote in an empty senate chamber that broke the back of independent agriculture in the US.  

Food riots coming to a town near you! Or maybe even yours.

By now we have all heard of the massive riots in Egypt.  Previously, Tunisia’s government was overthrown and the riots in Greece and Italy and India against rising taxes, food prices, and corrupt governments comprised of self-entitled elitists, is growing.  The so-called global economy promoted as some perverted form of capitalism and riddled with jingoistic terms like “free trade”, is destroying one economy after another.  Face it: A global economy as it is practiced is not only economically disastrous, but also is the tool used to destroy nations.  In that sense, it is working.

Burning Goodwill: A reply to a consumer organization regarding S.510

A reply to a consumer organization’s email soliciting ‘friends’ to contact their representatives in Washington and ask them to support  S. 510, the Food “Safety” bill

_____________________________________________

You are either totally ignorant about the contents of S. 510, the food “safety” bill, or you are a shill.

 Effective April 1, 2011, the selling of vitamins and nutritional supplements without a prescription will officially become illegal in Europe. The framework for this travesty is called the Codex Alimentarius, Napoleonic-era gibberish and brainchild of the World “Health” Organization, that was instituted to make the natural and organic health supplements go away—a  three billion dollar a year competitive market that cuts into the profits of BigPharma’s prescription pill and vaccine factories. 

Codex is being brought to humanity by these same wonderful folk—the World Health Organization and ‘associates’—who attempted to orchestrate a swine flu “pandemic” for the globe after hyping it four years—how does anyone know a “pandemic” is coming four years out?—so vax manufacturers could pre-sell governments their “vaccines” so they could “. . .be ready when it started.”

Which it didn’t. Sort of, they tried to throw a pandemic but no one came to the shot party.  At least not nearly  enough to use all the vaccine the governments had paid for.  Then they tried giving it away.  Still not enough takers.

One shipment of the vaccine that was sent to a European lab was “inadvertently” contaminated with the virus that could have started the pandemic in Europe had not the lab checked it before distributing the vaccine.

Imagine that.

America’s Food “Safety” bill, S. 510, also makes illegal backyard vegetable and fruit gardens, as well as products grown by large, wholesale, organic producers for organic outlets such as Whole Foods. The organic food market is the fastest growing market in the food industry today.  It also cuts directly into the World Health/World Trade Organization’s scheme to control the world’s food through genetically modified seed and patents.

Are the players beginning to sound familiar?  They’re the same players that manufactured genetically modified cotton seed. Want to know how the people who’ve grown cotton and food organically for thousands of years fared with this genetically modified cotton?  Take a look:

ECONOMIC AND TRADE THE COMPREHENSIVE AGREEMENT (CETA) PETITION

Leave a comment

  Canada is now under threat of the government, using international treaty and agreement, ending the right of the people to use, own, save or otherwise select, reuse or exchange or sell seeds without government control.  At stake  also is the “with only a reasonable belief” reflected in S.510 here in the US…..allowing seizure of crops, farms, equipment or other assets at government will.  

Please note, this petition is posted on the NFU website in pdf format, at the following link: http://www.nfu.ca/petitions/CETA.pdf More

Barbarians Behind the Curtain

Was it the Roman or Greek senate that was debating when the barbarians began to filter in and sit down beside them while their debates were in progress? 

Think modern day barbarians behind the curtain who’ve already taken over  the senate, house, and Washington; who already sit in key government positions and walk the halls of congress; who select candidates for voters to argue over; who provide faux elections for national offices. 

Third party?  Perot was as close as we’ll get and the elite forced him to drop out when he bolted the starting gate in 1992 ahead in the three-way presidential race with thirty nine percent  (G. H.W. Bush had 31% and Clinton 25%.) Later, when they told Perot he could come back in the race, he still garnered almost twenty percent of the vote. (He’d been asked to run to bleed votes away from GHWB to insure Clinton’s election; who they’d determined would be America’s next president.)

Perot’s fast start scared the boys behind the curtain spitless in that he probably would have won the election had he been allowed to run an uninterrupted race; given voter disgust with Washington.  It’s worse today and Oz won’t allow another independent run at the presidency, in my opinion.

The boys behind the curtain also place illusions in our heads. Or did in the days before the Internet. Which is easy to do when you control all the information, money, and main stream propaganda outlets.  More

Global agribusiness: two decades of plunder

4 Comments

Live Link : GRAIN

We offer a brief overview of the expansion of agribusiness in the global food system in the past two decades, with some thoughts on what we can expect from these companies in the years ahead.______________________________

Back in the early 1990s, many of Seedling’s pages were devoted to discussions about international treaties and public research agendas. Corporations were part of the discussion, but mainly as a looming threat, one group of actors pushing forward the industrial model of agriculture that was destroying agricultural biodiversity. Fast-forward twenty years, and the landscape has changed. Corporate power in the food system has grown by leaps and bounds. Today corporations set the global rules, with governments and public research centres following their lead.

The fall-out of this transformation for the planet’s biodiversity, and the people who look after it, has been devastating. Corporations have used their power to expand monoculture crop production, undermine farmers’ seed systems and cut into local markets. They are making it much more difficult for small farmers to stay on the land and feed their families and communities. This is why social movements are increasingly pointing to food and agribusiness corporations as the problem in the global food system and the focus of their resistance.

Seeds

Over the past two decades the seed industry has been dramatically transformed, from an industry of small seed companies and public programmes to an industry dominated by a handful of transnational corporations (TNCs). Today just ten corporations control half of the global market for commercial seeds (see illustration, “Top 10 corporations’ share of the global seed market”, page 16). Most are pesticide producers focusing on the development of genetically modified (GM) crops that support a chemically intensive agriculture. More
