MON(STER)SANTO’S “SCIENCE”: EVEN THE NEW YORK TIMES ...

Normally I am about as skeptical of The New York TimesThe Washington Post and other mainstream rags as I am about the Warren Commission and other "official" explanations. But this one is so interesting I have to pass it along, and it comes courtesy of Jon Rappaport's website:

Even the NY Times is now rejecting Monsanto GMO science

Now, I have to admit to a certain amount of "I told you so" gloating here. For one thing, I was the enfant terrible in my middle and high school biology classes, always asking the unwanted question of our Darwinian textbooks: if the giraffe evolved a longer neck to eat tree leaves, why didn't the trees evolve taller and unreachable branches. The whole mechanism was a viscious circle, explaining everything, and nothing. The old adage seemed to me, even then, self-evident. If you see through everything, then that means only that you see nothing at all.

The Times Magazine article by Bittman is correct: all the millions invested in the questionable technology has only led to more resistant strains of weeds and bugs. We're looking at the same evolutionary phenomenon that we see in the case of antibiotics.

But Rappaport is also correct:

"Of course, if it were a newspaper with any real courage, it would launch a whole series of front-page pieces on this enormous failure, and the gigantic fraud that lies behind it. Then the Times might actually see its readership improve.

"Momentum is something its editors understand well enough. You set your hounds loose on a story, you send them out with a mandate to expose failure, fraud, and crime down to their roots, and you know that, in the ensuing months, formerly reticent researchers and corporate employees and government officials will appear out of the woodwork confessing their insider knowledge.

"The story will deepen. It will take on new branches. The revelations will indict the corporation (Monsanto), its government partners, and the scientists who falsified and hid data.

"In this case, the FDA and the USDA will come in for major hits. They will backtrack and lie and mis-explain, for a while, and then, like buds in the spring, agency employees will emerge and admit the truth. These agencies were co-conspirators."

The reason? The answer is simple, the Time and Post are the newspaper versions of SeeBS, CNoNews, Faux News, and all the other mighty Wurlitzers of the corporate-government incestual Fascism that rules the country:

"Yes, the Times could make all this happen. But it won’t. There are two basic reasons. First, it considers Big Ag too big to fail. There is now so much acreage in America tied up in GMO crops that to reject the whole show would cause titanic eruptions on many levels.

"And second, the Times is part of the very establishment that views the GMO industry as a way of bringing Globalism to fruition for the whole planet."

And it is, like it or not, probably part of the whole globaloney agenda of the banksters and elitists. But there is a much deeper flaw here, and it is an epistemological one, one that will unravel the elites themselves.

That flaw is the viewpoint that science, that data, can be bought, skewed, altered or photoshopped to suit their agenda. It is an epistemological warfare on the truth; it is a kind of wishful thinking by which the elite have only deluded themselves. Thus, the Times piece really is just a limited hang out, an attempt to get control of the issue once again. What the Times fails to mention, however, is the growing list of nations banning the crap that Duponzanto and "agribusiness" are peddling. That only reveals the depth of the epistemological and cultural problem. Those other nations, corrupt as their own oligarchs are, are not nearly as dysfunctional as those in the good ole bought and paid for USA.

Eventually the wholesale assault on genuine science will only mean the inevitable decline of the West, and of its elite. By buying the "right data," the elites are only re-creating an infallible magisterium with dogmas to defend and heretics to burn. And that system only lasts until someone takes a look through a telescope.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Cloning is out, ‘editing’ [GMO pigs] is in … the new technology, ‘gene editing’, is supposedly 100x more precise and more efficient than current gmo technology … which lends zero confidence to what’s been foisted on farmers/consumers by DuPontzanto (now conjoined in their evil mission). This genome ‘editing’ involves removing one ‘base’ out of billions in a DNA set, as might happen during a natural mutation, and leaves no trace on the genome.

    This, of course, leads to the transhumanism issue … If it’s so easy, as the scientists claim, to edit DNA in animals [using fertilized eggs] I wonder how soon before we see it implemented in humans, i.e. for removing or inserting certain traits, while being virtually undetectable … and how long before DARPA becomes interested …

      Speaking of cloning Margaret, there’s a company called PerPETuate that offers its clients “cellsicles” (pet’s cells/DNA in a deep freeze) to become transformed into “clones”, when technology gets better. The sales pitch/There is almost no fee that would be too much to ensure the possibility of replacing your beloved pet with a twin, sometime in the future. After all, you can’t put a price on love.

      (But if you had to, it would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,300, plus yearly storage fees).

  2. just as an aside, it seems the NY Times takes a long time to digest things (no wonder; look at its burping owners) but even the MSM media is eventually forced to look at certain “givens” at times-

    interestingly enough the NY Times was the first MSM rag to publicize the fallicy behind the validy of male (for those over 40) PSA tests (prostate ‘whatever levels’- levels dictated to Urologists by Big Pharma)-

  3. Dupontzanto and the main stream media, what a double, well as we all know in two days all will be silent, ie taken over by some other “newsworthy” story.

    I kid you not, yesterday here in Oz, the ABC television network, which is owned by the government and commercial free, posted the 3rd story on their midday news report was, wait for it or guess it “Motorcycle accidents in Indonesia”. I wasn’t shocked by it as with all news media, it’s the BS first and then what’s left over is more BS.

    As Jim Marrs says, “And the New World Order Marches On”.

    I wonder how much the MSM is going to milk the Boston story for, I’ll give it 4 to 5 days max. Notwithstanding the tragic loss of life, this is the s***y world we live in today.

  4. Off topic so apologies, but I was saddened to awaken this morning to the news of yet another bomb going off and killing yet more innocent people.

    Without knowing definitively the identity of the perpetrator(s), it is nevertheless disappointing that one upon hearing news like this, that the first thing that comes to mind is yet another – “false flag event”.

    1. I am so sorry for the victims of the bombing in Boston and my heartfelt sympathies go out to their families and friends and to the city of Boston. But I must say, again, that it has the feel of another false flag event; we’ll know by ‘qui bono’ and the moves made by PTB to further clamp down.

      From yesterday, a timely posting at PressTV: ‘US turns to domestic extremism as new counterterrorism focus’ – While insisting that al-Qaeda has been “shattered” as an anti-US threat, American officials are reportedly struggling to invent a new ‘counterterrorism’ policy, with domestic extremists mentioned as the new focus. … (comments by Director of US National Intelligence James Clapper)

    2. ** I hope Paul de gagne is OK! **

      Jon Rappoport writes today about terror attacks as psyops intended to disorient people by disrupting the ‘space-time wave’ they live in. The fear created is so overwhelming that in order to get resolution and return to normal existence people will blindly accept any ‘official’ account, regardless of inconsistencies. We’ve had enough experience with this in the recent past and, unfortunately, the masses continue to fall for it. What new security regulations, what new terrorists defined, what other stories buried, what other lies perpetuated?

      Remember Rahm Emanuel’s advice: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

      [sorry, not sure where to post comments about Boston bombing so will just tack on to previous.]

      1. I’m ok Maggie. I’m still in my fifty humpty-dumpty pieces, as usual, ha, ha!

        “SPACE-TIME WAVE, you say?

        It sure feels that way in this City! ——It’s FREAKY!

        Massive Fertilizer Plant Explosion Shakes Texas, Town Evacuated, Toxic Fumes – Live Stream

        Interestingly this is the 20th anniversary of the siege in Waco. Am I supposed to believe this is a coincidence?

        Their attempts to scare us to death and clamp down on our liberties are “out of control” now.

        Meanwhile we in Australia are being told “not to be afraid of” GMO foods. We need them to be able to compete in the world market…

    Her Majesty’s Rag, aka NYTimes, recieved four Wurlitzers recently. I suppose those are ones permitted to be as close to the electric fence, surrounding essential truths, as possible.
    Currently reading Frankenstein’s Cat/Cuddling Up To Biotech’s New Beast by Emily Anthes. I read at several levels: one to see how it’s framed; two for author’s viewpoint; three for grey areas of purposeful deception; 4, 5, 6, ect., well you get the idea. I can’t really read a book by its cover, unless cover means, just that, cover(as in coverring up truth).
    Reading has become wickedly humorous, in that, double speak has become so replete its become: “Like”, “You Know”, and all those other #@*&^%*ing memes. Only deeper, in getting to the core thought processes.

    I’am sure everyone’s aware of the new theatre presentation being fed to sheeple across See BS & CNoNews, ect. Don’t be surprised, if the connections draw nebulous lines to recent school shootings. Or, the fact that gold has dropped so precipitiously, recalling 2008 July Lehman or Europe’s Sept 2011 Europe’s co-ordinated central bank intervention, is somehow tied into it. Whether or not, my viewpoint has been definately changed; seeing it all as theatre, designed by crisis, for power & profit; at the expense of most of mankind in the short-run, and all mankind(and other animals/plants don’t forget), in the long-run.
    The window is closing,though, despite the fact that the continueing theatrical performances are increasing.

  6. Double trouble! DuPont and Monsanto have decided to stop fighting over gmo soy … it’s more profitable to be partners than adversaries. Now they can exchange technology to develop more ‘combinations of genetics and traits to help feed an increasingly crowded planet,’ says DuPont. By doing business together they can advance innovation and ‘focus on bringing farmers the best products possible,’ says Monsanto. [‘Monsanto, DuPont end fight over GMO seeds’, phys.org 3/27/13]

    I noticed Harvard University did a limited hang out of fluoride not long ago.

    Harvard University = NY Times = NPR = information gatekeepers to the arrogant, sanctimonious class.

    I wonder, considering the mercenary, and totally corrupt nature of our corporate system, if extortion plays a role in a NY Times article such as this? A greedy or disgruntled NY Times flexing its muscles and leaning on one facet of the Evil Empire in order to prove that is not dead yet and still an integral part of the evil empire’s continued dominion. Or, just a squeeze for more money from the cabal to pay bills, buy hampton homes, drugs, prostitutes, child slaves, etc?

  8. Let us all pray for the Day After Tomorrow at least that would be quick death or we will have to prepare ourselves for Zardoz. With those of us that survive become the Brutals while our Elities wallow in their dream worlds.

  9. Viewed the 1 hour Red Ice interview of Ian R Crane titled “Horrifying Interview” about the progress of Codex Alimentarius. The last 10-15 minutes of that interview is definitely the place to take notes.

    Perhaps something positive will come out of the NYTimes article if enough people start paying attention, and other media outlets also bring the whole GMO issue out into the light.

    “Dr. Don Huber, wrote a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack warning of the discovery of a new pathogen and a possible link between Roundup Ready® (GMO) corn and soybeans and severe reproductive problems in livestock as well as widespread crop failure.

    Less than 3 weeks later, the Obama administration approved 2 new Roundup Ready® GMO crops, set to be planted this spring.”

    Can anyone imagine Obama focusing on the GMO issue as he has on gun control, creating jobs or the national debt? Oh wait, he is, and everything is going according to the Plan.

  10. “It is an epistemological warfare on the truth”

    Great line.

    I can’t find my old copy of Orwell’s 1984 right now, but isn’t this quote (from distant memory) from that book?

    [the purpose of all the oppression in the book is] “to end, once and for all, any possibility of free and independent thought.”

    the “epistemological warfare” that much of modern science wages, it seems to me, whether intentionally or unintentionally, furthers the goal of the above quote.

  11. Mark Bittman is an opinion columnist for the NYTimes; they often take issue with government policy.

    This is not the Times tackling the issue of abuses by Monstanto. Not even a little bit. All it proves is that Bittman is aware of some of the issues. Looks like he also complained about Monsanto back in Sept 2012 in an OpEd.
