OH THOSE WONDERFUL GMO FOODS

I've been watching, as many of you probably have, the claims of corporate "science" versus the legitimate concerns of independent voices over the growth of genetically modified plants. Well, it appears that GMOs are once again not in the news, at least, not in the news here:

Dangerous Toxins From Genetically Modified Plants Found in Women and Fetuses

We have been reassured, repeatedly, by the corporate purveyors of these poisoned foods, and by any number of "scientific" studies they have sponsored, by their paid off government lackeys, that these foods are safe. Little wonder, since there is a revolving door between these corporations and the very government agencies ostensibly tasked with looking out for the public good. Personnel move easily between the corridors of corporate board rooms and laboratories, into the FDA, the EPA, the NIH, and just as easily, back again.

Re-read that article carefully. You'll note that most of the scientific studies cited are being done in other countries, a sad comment on the state of our own, and its increasingly corrupted "science" being done by corporations looking to nothing but the bottom line, and not the potential human and animal misery their products are causing.

Note something else, hinted in this paragraph: "The biotech companies ignore the substantial difference between the GM toxin and the natural bacteria version, and boldly claim that since the natural spray has a history of safe use in agriculture, it’s therefore OK to put the poison directly into our food. But even this claim of safe use of Bt spray ignores peer-reviewed studies showing just the opposite." When genetically modified crops were first proposed back in the 1980s the corporations backed the principle of "substantial equivalence," meaning that genetic engineering was not fundamentally different than the agronomic practices of farmers through the millennia. But these same corporations turned around and patented their genetically modified seeds and crops, which could not be done with ordinary crops.

Why do I bring all this up? Well, not only to alert you to the dangers of tinkering with "mother nature," which are palpable and clear, but as yet another example of how the American Empire works, and why it is so dysfunctional. It is government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations. There is more of this story to tell...but that, I'm afraid, has to wait the means of a fuller exposition.

  1. Besides GMF and patent seeds I know you have been following the Republican party coup going on in Washtngton DC and in state governments. There has even been a Reichstag like fire at one of the state Democrat headquarters that the Republicans seem hell bent on bring on a great depression in the USA if not the world the poisoning of the food supply would fit into their plan to dispose of most of the human race garbage on two legs. Getting back to GMO foods they will have the power to make us do whatever thry want until there is a No Blade of Grass situation then the shit will hit the fan.

  2. Mussalini said “Corporatism” and “Fascism” are the
    same thing.

    And see Robert Kennedy Jr’s book,
    “Crimes Against Nature.”
    He is an environmental attorney.

    He claims in his book that just about every case he won
    was overturned because the G W Bush [jr] administration
    would instigate a change in the law or laws involved and
    making them retro !!!

    Somewhere within the last few pages he also writes
    “When government owns business, that’s communism;
    when business owns government, that’s fascism.”

    May I recommend it to you, Joseph?
    It’s not long and a good read.

  3. The recent court decision about patenting human genes has an interesting side to it – aside from the fact that the decision was deeply flawed, it also creates a sweet bind for the biotech firms: in order to patent something, it cannot exist in Nature – the court affirmed that it their decision.

    However, the crux of their whole argument of safety is that these are essentially “natural” items, hence safe – but wait! They can’t be both! They are either natural and unpatentable, or patentable and unnatural.

    If they are patented, then they must, by legal definition, be artificial, and there fore must be disclosed on labels. If they are called natural and not disclosed on the label, they will be violating the law, and open to massive lawsuits.

    So, if that decision stands, we have a strong legal gun to bring to bear on biotech like this, and if not, then the patent-based cash cow dries up and we win again.

    Now we will have to wait for SCOTUS to weigh in and cast the die….

    Not only is the food engineered to kill you.
    If the GMOs don’t get you, than Fukushima will.

  5. Guess what: The UNITED STATES IS a corporation. We have, except for a very few, volunteered into it. The United States of America is pretty much an empty house, and if Black’s Law Dictionary is any reference, which it is, then the United States of America is no longer in legal memory.

    Go find a library with several editions of Black’s Law Dictionary and you will see that their covers have different colors. It was either the 7th or the 8th edition (my memory fails me here) that was RED. This red edition (Red = “Warning Will Robinson! Danger! Danger!”) is the last one to include a definition of the United States of America.

    Well, maybe some lexicographer is now banging their head against a wall shouting, “How could I forget to include the ‘United States’ in the dictionary!!”

    So, naturally, or UN-naturally as the case may be, the UNITED STATES caters to corporations.

    1. Have you divorced your self of it yet? I was close, about to file the UCC but had a spiritual awakening and it doesnt matter now. I am free. I dont need pieces of paper with legal fictions to be free.

      1. I never was a part of it.

        As you say “about to file the UCC,” you show that you haven’t a clue as to what you are talking about. “Spiritual awakening” is also meaningless; makes it sound like you are in a 12-Step cult.

  6. Dr Farrell,
    Dont mean to hijack this idea, but have you investigated any of the claims regarding the Japanese elite and the Rockefellers? I’m sure you’ve probably read SOME of Ben Fulfords material and a lot of it seems high strange (I have my own theories why).

    However it makes a little too much sense when you consider the dethroning of the Emperor and the deal that had to be struck to make it happen. I mean he still is revered, but powerless in the public sense. Perhaps his power is financial/string pulling behind the scenes which he could accept in liue of a signature.

    I see right now with the destruction of Japan, they are in full on deflation and decoupling from the US banking system (carry trade is OVA! which was a dollar CRUTCH!). It is interesting to note, they had water powered cars about to enter the market there. Plenty of youtube videos from manufacturers/news documenting it. India announced yesterday an AIR powered car. Today UBS announced they are threatening over the CITY OF LONDON HQ building and it just reeks of elite infighting. City of London, Vatican City and DC are the same beasts where different faces…it seems to be a triad of power and its crumbling right before our eyes for a few various reasons.

    Its all around us…all of our personal karmic issues are being forced into our personal awareness and this energy is fractal so it scales up to the nation state, planetary and cosmic levels resulting in karmic lessons as a nation, as a planet and as a cosmic being…
