MORE CHALLENGES TO MON(STER)SANTO’S SUPREMES
According to RT, the issue of GMOs, and the "GMO-military-industrial-patent" complex is not going to go away any time soon. Only this time, there's a hitch:
US farmers challenging Monsanto patent claims appeal to Supreme Court
I hope you read that carefully, and saw what the hitch was. When Dr. Scott D. de Hart and I were researching and writing Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, we spent some time - an entire chapter in fact - examining how the whole idea of the patentability of genetically modified crops came about, while, at the same time, normal regulatory procedures were relaxed by bought-and-paid-for agencies of various governments. The key to the regulatory relaxation was the evolution of the principle of "substantial equivalence," which was developed precisely in order to side-step such regulatory testing, which would conceivably have been very long term(as one would only expect as common sense from the introduction of modifications of the human food supply, and hence the implicate potential of bad effects on human health). Substantial equivalence simply meant that GMOs were, in effect, the very same organism as the non-GMO crops they were designed to replace, say, wheat. The nutritional function and benefit was "substantially equivalent," and hence, regulations could be relaxed.
But, as we also pointed out in Transhumanism, the advocacy of this doctrine soon involved the agribusiness giants in a philosophical, and legal, contradiction, for at one and the same time, they were attempting to patent their concoctions, and hence, gain the ability to reap royalties from the sale of their seeds, a portion of which could not be harvested for replanting without payment of additional fees, where a portion of conventional non-GMO seeds were traditionally husbanded for replanting in future crops. So much for substantial equivalence.
When it came to the four principles of American patent law, the focus has thus far been on the intervention by the hand of man, and the ability to replicate a process or technique to achieve results otherwise not accomplished by nature. By this criterion, GMOs were clearly patentable. But there was another criterion in play as well: utility or usefulness. A product had to provide some utile benefit in order to be patentable.
Here, you'll note, is precisely where the latest opposition to GMOs to come before the courts is addressing the whole contradiction:
"While the Court of Appeals correctly found that the farmers and seed sellers had standing to challenge Monsanto's invalid patents, it incorrectly found that statements made by Monsanto's lawyers during the lawsuit mooted the case," said Daniel Ravicher, Executive Director of the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) and lead counsel to the plaintiffs in the case, OSGATA et al v. Monsanto. "As a result, we have asked the Supreme Court to take the case and reinstate the right of the plaintiffs to seek full protection from Monsanto's invalid transgenic seed patents."
Ravicher says the company’s patents on genetically-modified seeds don’t meet the “usefulness” requirement of patent law. The plaintiffs’ filing cites evidence proving that the genetically-engineered seeds have negative economic and health effects, while the supposed benefits for food production and avoiding toxic pesticides are weak. (Boldface emphasis added)
Now, I have about as much faith that rationality and reason will prevail with the Supremes as it did in Dred Scott. The real test, of course, will be the market, and whether or not Duponzanto and Mon(ster)santo will accept the labeling of food containing their GMOs'.
I'm not holding my breath on that score either.
See you on the flip side.

Talk about Frankenstein?
Think of crocodile men.
Just when you think one couldn’t get more stupid.
Always having to eat my own words.
Flesh-rotting krokodil drug makes it to US, ‘frightens’ Arizona medics.
GMOs is “Luciferian” in the sense it’s based on “human sacrifice” and in the sense “Lucifer” in another lifetime was the one responsible for the discovery of food crops and herbs.
It’s only right for the Satanists to honor him by reclaiming what’s his in the first place, the only difference is that’s long time ago, now he’s the god of chaos and darkness.
“American empire” is arguably “Satanic” in nature. Perhaps in the Akashic Records, there is no such thing as “American empire”, only “Satanic empires” manifested in all colors and creeds.
GMO’s usefulness may be a national security issue:
It is possible that our valiant breakaway civilization is not only preparing a military defense to fend off another Tower of Babel moment for humankind, but they could also be altering our DNA through GMO’s in order to make the current patent on Earth homo sapiens null and void. When the patent holders return to lay claim on us, they will find our DNA schematics are quite different than their original design. And they would have a hard time in any court in this galaxy (except maybe our very own supreme court) claiming Earthmen and woman as their property.
Or, it is in the realm of possibility that GMOs are meant to target the semi-alien stewards of our planet– either disabling the genes which keep them connected to their masters out in space, making them like us, or just killing them.
Labeling would be more acceptable than outright bans. Biotech knows that gmo contamination will destroy organic certification eventually. It is so prevalent now that USDA considers contamination ‘normal’. So, it’s a negative economic ‘effect’ for organic producers and a positive economic ‘benefit’ for biotech. Soon it will no longer be a positive benefit for farmers as crop failures continue. They have become enslaved by swallowing the poison biotech pill.
Re the Washington State labeling ballot initiative, I-225, biotech has amassed an $11bn fund for its anti-labeling propaganda campaign. So I-225 will likely fail, but the public/marketplace will become more educated in the process. That’s where biotech will fail as it has been, around the world.
Investment advisors have been cautioning recently about Mon[ster]santo. Motley Fool, fwiw, this week headlined a report “Is Monsanto Destined for Greatness?”. Looking at key statistics you’d say yes, flawless performance. If you didn’t read all the way to the bottom of the page, below the fancy charts, you’d think it’s a great stock to buy … but in the end, investors are invited to look elsewhere. 😉
Invest in your local farmers and producers, buy organic whenever possible.
The rule of law is now a defacto rule of men.
Of course, the “law” is used strictly for those – not in the plutocrims book of life.
OK, totally off topic but Dr Farrell should get a larf out of this:
Otto Skorzeny killed Nikola Tesla –
Hi MQ … Off topic but never off the table for discussion! I wonder why Milosevic’s piece was published just now … maybe because a monument to Tesla was dedicated this week at the site of his former Wardenclyffe laboratory. I think Milosevic picked up his information from a major piece by investigative journalist Don Nicoloff for the April 2007 Idaho Observer. It was a 2-part series aimed at showing Bush family origins/connections to Nazis and that GHWB’s father was assistant to Tesla. The Skorzeny/Tesla chapter being just a part of a larger story about a ‘master plan’ to destroy America. Scroll down to the Nikola Tesla heading. The part about murdering Tesla is in the ‘Otto Skorzeny: S.S./ODESSA/CIA master spy and assassin’ section.
[quote] As Skorzeny described (to Berman) in detail his involvement with George H. W. Bush (George H. Scherff, Jr.) in organizing the CIA by absorbing Nazi S.S. agents, he intimated that it was Reinhard Gehlen and himself who murdered Nikola Tesla on January 6, 1943 by strangulation/suffocation. Prior to the murder, Skorzeny and Gehlen “spoke in great detail to Tesla about his most-advanced technologies and then stole the blueprints of his best, most-secret inventions.” [unquote]
And much, much more. It’s a long, very detailed read but absolutely fascinating! I think it explains a lot about why we are, where we are. today …
I’ve read about this. It needs to be known. Thanks for this post Margaret.
This does bring up the question of the row about Barrac Obama citizenship by the birthers when the Bush’s and Walkers are even more dodgy and might be of enemy origins. Thanks for the link that backs up the Veterans Today article I read it Margaret what a mess we’re in.
Tesla had access to the vatican libary….now thats a very big red flag, considering the technology was ancient and he just happen too refind it….and he was orthodox.
I am starting to suspect some sort of ruse going on here…….I smell a RAT
Imagine destroying the race that are credited with the technology, obliterate it from historical archives, and replacing your group of ass backward parasites scumbags falsely as the genius, and benevolent too mankind.
I like your thought processes in this post.
Funny. Everybody is after their 15 minutes of fame aren’t they. There are countless photos of the Bush family dating way back. And Skorzeny, Yeah lets believe him. Again, funny.
Another slant…as with the ongoing atmospheric modifications.
Perhaps foodstuffs are undergoing modifications toward the same end point…human hybrids.
I realize Doc you’ve covered all this in your books. I only toss my two bits in the ring as well, with thoughts of a small group of hybridized humans allowed to exist. A group of 500 million, as serfs serving a much smaller group, calling themselves the “chosen ones”.
Each group is genetically modified, only in divergent manner. Serfs, devoid of independent thought and direction; controlled by the latter.
To your point, this battle is already lost re: gmo’s. The evidence is in the environment itself. And, I’ve not even touched upon and I won’t really…HAARP, NEXRAD and various other electromagnetic devices, with multiples of applications.
I encourage others, to pull back their perspectives to a more macro one.
Okay…moving off the podium.
Thanks for all your research and postings!
I wonder how many in the “employment” of these “instruments/platforms” of a slow death( of course, their design is even more diabolical) realize – they, themselves, are in the crosshairs?
The is no low to which these psychos will descend to make money and control of everything. They think patents makes them owners of everything in the world and universe. It’s only the latest form of total slavery and deification these people think is their right by birth.
