FRANCE BANS GMO MAIZE WITH MORE TO COME(PERHAPS)

While this article is a bit dated by the time this blog has been scheduled, it is nonetheless significant and worth bringing to your attention. A few days ago I composed a blog about Russia’s state Duma considering a complete ban on GMO products. The article, you’ll recall, was based on a story published by RT(Russia Today), which also indicated two more significant things: (1) Russia intended to conduct longterm scientific evaluation of GMOs, surely bad news to American agribusiness giants like Mon(ster)santo, since they won’t be in a position to buy off Russian scientists (or will they?), and (2) the same article suggested strongly that Russia was considering entry into the agricultural market place selling non-GMO, regular, ordinary, seeds for crops, a move that I have been predicting would inevitably come from one of the BRICSA nations as part of their pushback against the aggressive policies both of the USA and of USA corporations.

But there’s another European nation to watch as well, and it’s France:

French GM-Maise Planting Ban

The caption in the picture at the top of the article says it all, at least as far as the French opposition to GMOs is concerned: “GMOs: Menace to all life.”

But there’s more: note the implications of the first two paragraphs:

“The French government issued a decree Monday forbidding farmers to plant genetically-modified maize in the immediate future while the government drafts a comprehensive law that will attempt to ban the practice nationwide.

“French officials maintain that GM crops constitute a serious environmental risk, despite a senior court striking down two national prohibitions on GM maize (corn) in recent time. GM opponents were also frustrated recently by the European Union, which failed to agree on whether or not to ban a new strand of GM-maize. The lack of consensus makes it more likely that the EU Commission will approve its cultivation.”

In other words, regardless of what corporate pressures may be being brought to bear upon the EU commission, France itself will have none of it. It is is a rebellion that seems to be headed for more widespread European-wide bans:

“… the French Senate began debating more comprehensive domestic legislation on Monday. That law, which is expected to be voted on in April, will seek to make planting of all genetically modified organisms (GMOs) illegal.

“France is also lobbying other European Union countries to sign a letter that would warn the Commission not to approve Pioneer 1507.

“’Those who believe in the value of the EU to its citizens are rightly concerned how this will play out in the upcoming European elections,’ the letter said

“Pioneer 1507, the aforementioned strand of maize that the countries could not decide on, was developed jointly by DuPoint and Dow Chemical and has been the subject of no small amount of public suspicion. The document has already been signed by ministers from Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemborg, Malta, Poland, and Slovenia”

I hope you read that carefully, for France is seeking to transform the issue into a kind of referendum on the structure of the EU itself, via the issue of the healthfulness or lack thereof of GMO crops. It is a clever and I suspect will ultimately be a successful strategy, for as the evidence increasingly grows that GMOs do entail significant health risks, the already pressured EU bureaucrats can hardly afford yet another issue that protrays the whole EU structure and experience as one indifferent to European peoples.

There is also, as I’m sure you’ve all guessed by now, a wider geopolitical and international financial context in which this move must be viewed, and that is the moves by Europe to form its own internet more secure against US electronic eavesdropping, a move that France along with Germany is sponsoring. Since agricultural exports constitute a significant portion of American international foreign trade, this is yet more pushback against the unipolar American vision of world order that emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and which has been the principal formative factor in American foreign and financial policy since.

See you on the flip side.

  1. There are good tidings. I recently spoke with an executive at Cargill (one of Mons(ter)anto’s prime competitors) who advised that even though they were an original in the field of GMO and breaking the Co-op farming movement they are now OUT of the GMO business.
    Floridated (FD): “Why?”
    Cargill Executive (CE): “We decided that the liability is too high.”
    {interjection}: “What liability? You haven’t lost any lawsuits!”
    FD: “It’s (the liability) only going to increase based on what I have seen.”
    CE: “?”
    FD: “Its dangerous. Also, there have been lawsuits against farmers who weren’t growing GMO crops who had the seeds blown into their fields. They got sued and lost. They lost BIG TIME!”
    CE: “Yeah, well that sounds terrible. I’m glad we’re out of it.”

    Make of that what you will. Not necessarily HOS but certainly a signal that the largest privately owned source of commodities intelligence in the world is concerned about GMO due to “liability.”

  2. Jon Rappoport has an article today: Will Healthy Food Crps Go Extinct? In this article he addresses “genetic drift”.
    http://nomorefakenews.com/
    On http://rt.com/ today(& tomorrow) is an documentary on the genetic engineering & poisoning of “our” food. (Specifically using fish as an example. It is a documentary called “Filet-oh!-fish”(just click on “shows”, the documentary(check schedule).All this points to as long term agenda(21 etc) to poison us in foods, in radiation(Fukushima et al), in atmosphere(geoengineering).
    This is a war carried out diabolically by government entrusted to the health & well-being of her citizens. This is really nothing new. What’s new is the people are becoming more & more aware(educated). Hence, when the trigger($) come to be “pulled”- will the dummies…

    -(that’s what they may as call themselves, since their own lives are in the plutocrims’ cro$$hairs as well)

    -will the dummies suicide themselves, or will they turn the gun$ on those who planned “the peoples'” genocide?

    • It begs the question as to where the ‘people’ perpetrating these programmes against the rest of humanity get their own food and water supplies, free from the carcinogens and GMO that are contaminating everything else.

      Interestingly, scientists have recently discovered a vast reservoir of water under the Earth’s mantle that they say could be larger than all the oceans combined. Perhaps all these DUMBs’ are utilised to extract this abundance of clean water to ship and distribute to a select few. Also, (…and this is my mind going into speculative overdrive) does this give credence to the hollow earth theory and Admiral Byrd himself??? I have also begun wondering whether this vast resevoir of water could be used as an overflow mechanism to engulf the surface of the earth as and when required to cleanse it of the majority of humans by acting as a kind of reset (Biblical flooding type scenario).

      • sagat1 this “water” story is fascinating. A Fox-like story where the “media” are all-in-sync in splashing “water” all over cyberspace. It’s on my yahoo news as “Rare Diamond Confirms Theory About Earth. At first glance, I thought of the “oil” story that never was – the real “geological” news; namely, that oil is abiotic, not biologically, but geologically formed. So the science has been corrupted for a long time. And who knows with this “water” story?
        As far as what they do to get around the radiation, the food toxicity, the geoengineering, etc., I don’t know. But Im beginning to suspect they don’t know themselves(except an extremely select few). I beginning to suspect they have been lied to and believe it – because at present they can afford to have that choice. Of course they are part of the Betrayal State, but perhaps feel somewhat exempt from wrapping their heads around the 9/11s of our time. But soon that too will pas. The sooner, the better.

        Still, there is that nagging: What do they know, that I don’t.
        Or, perhaps, unwittingly: What do they believe?

  3. Does one of these posters not understand the difference between GMO organisms and organisms bred by hybridzation? Big difference.

  4. If this keeps up future Presidents of the USA will have to change their title to Elector of the USA. And become providers of mercenaries for hire like the Elector of Hesse was since that is all we will have to sell on the open market. Thanks to GMOs another nail in the coffin of the American economy thanks DuPont and Monsanto merchants of death has become our motto.

  5. This is good news, and in any case, only a handful of the 27 Member States do not have a virtually complete ban on GMO cultivation for commercial purposes as stated in the 2001 EU directive. And even elsewhere, such as Romania, with a long history of GMOs, they also banned GMO corn in 2008. Of course, one might wonder just how much compliance there is with these rules….

  6. Cynically, and not wanting to sound like a distracting shill, I would wager the EU will just roll out their own “safer” and non-American GMO seeds. Like the idea of a non-US controlled internet, the Europeans probably want a non-US controlled food supply. And as the US agribusiness busily tries to weaken and dumb down its host population, China will no doubt introduce GMOs that will make their population smarter, stronger and bigger. India and Russia, on the other hand, will champion traditional methods of agriculture and continue to use ancient GMO seeds that we now call heirloom.
    And Japan? Japan will continue to feed their population lots of fish and seaweed to prepare their brains and bodies for the GMOs they have cooked up which will transform the Japanese population back into an aquatic version of homo sapien– the true survival plan for a species regularly brought to the brink by meteors, volcanos, solar outbursts, tower of Babel moments, wars, plagues, etc.

    How much safer homo sapiens would be if we could dive into the sea in times of danger? Not to mention the abundant supply of food that waits for us below the ocean. Maybe our sinister elite, so busy preparing for humanity’s inevitable armageddon with their underground bunkers and off planet colonies, are aware of the ingenious plan of the Japanese and have attempted to sabotage it by poisoning the water around Japan via Fukishima? I suspect an aquatic homo sapien, with its superior mental power from a diet of fish and seaweed and its great maneuverability and survivability, is a greater threat to the elites’ plan then we know. In fact, I think it was our alien elite who chased us out of the water many eons ago (with sharks?) and turned us into the violent terrestrial scavengers we are today. And only the Japanese remember– preserved in their diet and in their ancient rituals such as pearl diving.

    I for one herald this return. Homo Aquaticus maybe the true perfected state of man and it is a GMO I will eat with relish… and a side of wasabi.

    • wow, Frankie, you just always give us so much food for thought (no pun intended regarding GMOs)-

      but I think one must remember the European Union is a conglomerated/collective fascist state; at the end of the day France, Germany, etc. can on the surface try to do whatever they want but at the end of the day everything is decided in Brussels, Belgium; so who is at the helm of the elite converging in Brussels?- Jews/Jesuits/Vatican/God-less banksters/mafias (the list is endless)?-

      or is Germany controlling all of this?- I don’t have the answer- the only thing I know is that once Bismark united the German-speaking provinces Germany was set up for “a kill”; just look at both world wars; but Germany has always amazingly risen from the ashes of untold death and destruction and very quickly like no other nation on earth; so who is controlling Germany?- or continues to USE Germany?

      I don’t have the answer- am just throwing out ideas-

      “elite who chased us out of the water many eons ago”- if my read sources are correct the human fetus, once hands begin to develop, the hands are webbed; but this webbing is then quickly retracted as the fetus develops-

      stay well-

      • I’m with you Larry. The deeper I dig, the less I know who is running this asylum.

        Were we an aquatic species at one time? It makes more sense than the “out of Africa jungle” theories. The question might be then: were we aquatic refugees from another planet that may have lost all its water, like Mars? Were we dropped into the Earth’s oceans like goldfish by some kind souls who were rescuing us? Perhaps there is a human hatchery somewhere out there in the galaxy and when a watery planet is discovered, it is stocked with aquatic humans in order to expand the galactic presence of our species. I might be wrong, but it seems the chances for survival might be better starting in the sea, rather than being dumped on land.

        There may be a lot of clues in the old Hindu legends. For example, who was this avatar Varaha- the boar incarnation of Vishnu- who plunges into the ocean and emerges followed by a million other boars who then roam the Earth devouring garbage. Is this just a myth of how aquatic humans were given the pig genes and thereby drawn out of their water abode to live on land like scavengers? (LIke US history and the evening news, I interpret Hindu avatar morality legends 180 degree opposite of what is being told in order to get closer to the truth).

        I doubt we will ever know our true origins but like you always say Larry: the craziest scenarios are probably closer to the real story in nearly every regard.

  7. Even Francophobes will have to admit that those founders of French toast, fries and kisses have always understood food and apparently not just from a gastronomic consideration. A few years ago they were the first, I believe, to release a documentary revealing the perils of Monster Inc.

    Oh what a fantasy to ride MON put shares on a long descending path to personal gain.

    Amaizein Grace. C’est magnifique! Vive le France!
