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

S.3217 Restoring American Financial Stability Act: also known as the “Buggering America One More Time Act”

“I guess, Henry Waxman was the only person to discover this close tie between financial reform and dietary supplements.  Who would have imagined such a thing?  Guess that’s why he’s a Representative; he can divine the deep connections between corrupt financial institutions and your right to use and purchase dietary supplements to help offset the toxic effects of gmo food, chemicals, additives, pesticides and herbicides that have contaminated what was once nutritional food sources.”


Contrary to the news flying around that Codex Alimentarius with regards to vitamins and supplements is dead: it is not.  In the usual fashion of all things slimy and slippery in the District of Criminals, the bill originally promoted by Sen. John McCain (R):S.3002 The Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA) of 2010 A bill, to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to more effectively regulate dietary supplements that may pose safety risks unknown to consumers”, quickly became another mill stone around the Senators’ neck as the public backlash on this one was massive. 

Apparently the Senator was unaware that unlike toxic pharmaceuticals routinely approved by the FDA as safe and effective (if you consider possible death, stroke, heart attack, blood clots, etc., ) as an acceptable side affect, dietary supplements and nutritional aids have no such history.   In fact, those manufacturers of nutritional supplements would not consider death as a result of the use of their products as simply “collateral damage” to be expected in pursuit of mega profits.

The Senator quickly withdrew the bill, but that wasn’t the end of it.

Off it went to the committee that is supposed to be writing or re-writing or whatever it is they do while their stakeholders (campaign donors, big corps, lobbyists) write or re-arrange the language in the bills to make sure Corporation (X) makes kabillions in profits and at the same making sure they are totally unaccountable or liable for whatever toxic poisons they dump on the American public.  That committee is the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee whose members can be viewed here on the right side of the page.

Virginia Thumbs Nose at ObamaCare

Leave a comment

CCHC Health Care News

Citizens’ Council on Health Care

Yesterday, according to The Washington Post, the Virginia General Assembly passed a bill to make it illegal for the government to require individuals to purchase health insurance. This is a direct assault against ObamaCare. President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi concede that the individual mandate—forcing all citizens to buy health insurance, and then only insurance approved by the government—is THE key to achieving their goals for ObamaCare. If everyone is not required to purchase health insurance, then the federal government will not have the money to pay for all the subsidies, special deals, and special interest handouts in the bill.

The Virginia Senate passed the bill last month and Governor Robert McDonnell said Wednesday that he intends to sign it. Every state of the Union should follow in this effort to assert, claim, and retain the Constitutional rights of citizens.







Vote    NO on Issue 2  

Issue 2 is an inappropriate use of the Ohio constitution, and would set a dangerous precedent by creating a permanent place for special interests in the constitution.

On November 3, Vote NO!

 NO to corporate and special interest takeover of our Ohio constitution

NO to unchecked power and new layers of unaccountable bureaucracy over our livestock farmers

NO to a new board acting as judge, jury and executioner of all animal agriculture policies in Ohio

NO to expanded state government

NO to an appointed board of political cronies who could radically shift livestock standards in any direction

NO to giveaways for factory farms in the Ohio constitution  

Don’t allow special interests to hijack the state constitution: Vote NO on ISSUE 2

John Wallace: Special Interest Money Equals Bribery

This is such an excellant idea!  Marti

Quote from John Wallace:        Special Interest Money Equals Bribery

 “All Politicians should be required to wear uniforms like Racing Car Drivers with patches showing the donations received from special interest groups so we know who has paid them off!”


They think reading the bills is a joke

Without DownsizeDC.org’s Read the Bills Act (RTBA), Congress has every incentive to make bills as long and convoluted as possible. This allows them to combine reasonable-sounding proposals with special-interest favors. And then, when the bill doesn’t work as intended, their solution is always to pass yet another long, convoluted bill.

But under RTBA…

* Congress will have an incentive to make bills as short and clear as possible
* Fewer bills will get passed, meaning government won’t grow at such a cancerous rate
* The final version of every bill will be posted on the Internet for at least seven days before a vote, giving the public and the media a chance to read and comment

Tell Congress to pass DownsizeDC.org’s Read the Bills Act.

Use your personal comments to tell your Congressional employees that…

* You object to long, convoluted bills like H.R. 2454.
* You’re offended by the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s speed reading joke
* You’ll hold them accountable if they vote for this bill without reading it

Commentary by Ruthie

Within the current talks in Washington on how to deal with the mismanagement of our financial system by the very people who created the problem, there is one issue that is NOT being discussed – sub prime mortgages to illegal aliens. Nor do I believe without our voices being heard loud and clear by those elected to oversee these regulations, that there will be no discussion to address and correct the issue.


Many of those that discuss this current bailout day in and day out admit that sub prime housing loans escalated where we are today. And, the stories of, fraudulent activities and housing mortgages to illegal aliens is available.


Why are American homeowners and taxpayers being subject to pay for the activities of an administration, politicians and government agencies that demanded mortgage companies fund these loans?



It is illegal to aid and abet illegal aliens

US Code Section 8 sub sections 1324 and 1325.


It is illegal to change or ignore qualifications for home ownership.


And consider this – those illegally in the country have nothing to loose they can simply walk away from this debt leaving the American citizen holding the bag.


CONTACT ANY, MANY OR THOSE WHO YOU WOULD LIKE and D E M A N D the return to law and order and absolutely ….


No bail out to those who broke the law and aided and abetted illegal alien activity.


No funds to SPECIAL INTERESTS and LOBBYISTS that do not put the interests of the AMERICAN CITIZENS FIRST.


No bailout or funding to those not legally in this Country.


They are not discussing this issue because within the current negotiations they would rather slip the issue into the talks WITHOUT educating the American people.



Please make the calls – if you cannot call – search out the person you would like to contact and email them – REPEATEDLY


No amnesty

Secure our borders

Enforce the LAW!!!!


If we do not stop the never ending financial drain of Americans and legal residents in this country to those who have done nothing more than break the law and enter this country illegally, we will be paying – as will our children and grandchildren – for generations to come – COMMON SENSE, LAW AND ORDER and the INTERESTS OF AMERICANS FUTURE must be address NOW.
