GMOs VS BRICS: AN UPDATE
One of the stories I've tried to stay abreast of here is the growing geopolitical implication of GMOs and the backlash against them, and the geopolitical implication of that backlash. As Dr. Scott deHart and I pointed out in Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas, and as other researchers have also observed (notably F. William Engdahl), the genesis of GMOs has its origins in studies undertaken and sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation and other business interests during the 1950s, studies that had as a goal the corporatizing, and hence control of, the world's food supply.
In short, GMOs can be patented, and royalties charged for them. Heirloom seeds, while they can be sold, cannot be patented and hence controlled.
But with the growing worldwide scrutiny and oppositions to GMOs, from India to Europe and Russia, I have made the prediction that one will eventually see the BRICSA nations making anti-GMO attitudes and policies part of their geopolitical agenda, to the point that they were eventually enter direct competition against the USA and its big agribusiness companies like Mon(ster)santo by selling heirloom seeds on the world market, and eventually, they will attempt to do so in the American market itself.
In that context, I blogged recently about the Chinese government rejecting a a shipment of American GMO corn because it did not meet Chinese regulatory standards.
Now, it seems, there is more going on than meets the eye within the BRICSA group, especially regarding agriculture:
China Rejects US Corn as First Shipment Arrives from The Ukraine
Note this paragraph:
"Genetically modified corn and corn-derived products totaling 601,000 metric tons were rejected in 2013, the official Xinhua News Agency reported today, citing the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. A Panamax-sized shipment of non-genetically modified corn from Ukraine entered the country on Dec. 6, according to a statement dated Dec. 25 on the website of state-owned China National Complete Engineering Corp."
And this one:
"China continued to reject corn cargoes from the U.S. that contained an unapproved genetically modified variety while accepting a first bulk-carrier shipment of the grain from Ukraine."
And finally, this one:
"Ukraine may export 18 million tons of corn in 2013-2014, tying it with Argentina as the third-biggest supplier behind the U.S. and Brazil, the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast in December."
There is, I suggest, a subtext here, that is carefully hidden in these three paragraphs, namely, that the BRICSA nations are now taking direct aim at GMO modifications specific to American agricultural products.
And that in turn suggests that we may be a significant step closer to that all-out direct geopolitical confrontation via the GMO-vs-heirloom seed issue between the BRICSA nations and the scientifically corrupted culture of American agribusiness. Intriguingly, this move comes via a country not directly a part of the BRICSA bloc - The Ukraine - but it is important that the Ukraine is predictably falling increasingly back under the orbit of Moscow, and this, one may possibly view this action as being that of a representative of Moscow.
So what might one expect as the next move from the BRICSA bloc in this regard?
I suspect that the next moves will be twofold: first, the increase of such bilateral agreements between China and other BRICSA nations - India - to bypass American GMO exports. This, I suspect, will be accompanied by increasing pressures against GMOs from Argentina (the big test laboratory for big "agribusiness" that gutted Argentina's once prosperous family ranch and farm business), to Brazil. With Chinese, Indian, and Russian backing, these nations, already fed up with the strong arm tactics and internet snooping of the USA, will be able to mount a more concerted effort. Secondly, and more importantly, I suspect the BRICSA nations will increasingly step up public propaganda efforts against big American GMO corporations and the corrupted scientific practices they have sponsored.
But make no mistake about it: China's turn from American to Ukrainian agriculture is a huge step. And it is only the first of many.
See you on the flip side.

The good guys won a month ago by a narrow margin but it was a victory nonetheless. Notice the mention of GMO crop yield:
” I’m a farmer.” ~ Max Yasgur; Woodstock, August “69
It’s unfortunate to link “American” with GMOs, torture, HAARP(earthquakes like Haiti, etc.), and other NWO internationalist underpinnings. I suppose other contaminated nation states, where the vast majority of citizens are against the policies being implemented by these unelected governments(in reality the selected aren’t, in truth, elected); and that they too, are experiencing the same unease & quizzy feelings, associated within those “contested” stormy waters.
Not in my book.
GMOs are un-American, as is torture, as are countless the other policies of transnationals.
Along with this, BRICSA should also develop their version of the Peace Corps which they could then send to the United States for the purpose of teaching the North American people healthy and sustainable methods of farming and living. Imagine if a cadre of BRICSA Peace Corp volunteers descended on your local trailer park and coaxed the natives out of their mobile homes and away from their televisions to experience clean air, sunlight, and gardening? Projects could be set up where the trailer park could grow their own food using these heirloom seeds. Maybe even raise their own meat and discover that beef doesn’t grow on a MCDonald’s tree. Maybe they could even be inspired to exercise? Or, set up their own bank and currency?
It sounds like a herculean task, more difficult than getting a tribe of Indonesian cannibals to stop eating each other, but I believe it could be done with the right persuasion. The methods of Christian missionaries and the American Peace Corps could be studied. Maybe offer, initially, free tattoos as an incentive. Chinese big screen televisions could be handed out like bibles and baubles were handed out in the old days. Power and bribes could be given to the trailer park chief, at least until some mental health is returned to the sickened natives and more dharmic principles could be impressed upon them. Eventually maybe the BRICSA Peace Corps volunteers could even establish schools for the indigenous people so their children could get a real education. More far reaching, maybe even the blood god could be deposed over time and replaced with a corn god. (Sadly, that yahweh character really is good for these kind of incursions).
How delightful it would be to see more traditional and sustainable methods of living take hold once again in the United States and how frustrating and disruptive it would be for our elite. Take note BRICSA.
Haha, you’ve got enough material already to made a blockbuster movie. Comedic video entertainment that educates is the ticket for those who won’t read.
terminally skeptical has the right idea.
Has anyone began to wonder if the USA is being set up to go over cliff. We have a rogues gallery of buffoons and money whores in the Congress. Plutocrats that think money is real and they are gods and have confused commerce with military and don’t know the difference or care between the two. They seem to want set up the conditions for a French or Russian revolution to take place. Are our puppet masters decided that it’s time to close shop and shut down the business called America. All that the USA has become is merchants of death whether weapons ,GMO poison food stuff and trashy products of all kinds And finally gambling with life on this planet stupidity par excellence.
So, you’ve two choices:
1. Eat the US engineered GMO corn that French scientists have linked with tumor growths.
2. Eat the Ukrainian corn grown on areas contaminated by the Chernobl accident, an issue incidentally that was raised at the EU afew months ago…
Fellow Members Kazimierz Ziobro and Mieczysław Golba from the Subcarpathian region have informed me of instances of Ukrainian wheat and rape being imported into Poland from areas contaminated by the Chernobyl accident. In 2010, the Ukrainian minister of agriculture reported that areas which had been contaminated were starting to be used to grow crops. He said that farmers would be able to commence sowing cereals and rape on an area of almost 1.3 million hectares. This decision allowed acreage under cultivation, and therefore the amount of crops harvested, to be increased. Since this decision was announced, the cereal harvest in Ukraine has grown from around 39.5 million tonnes in 2010 to around 57 million tonnes in 2013. This has allowed more Ukrainian cereals to be exported to European Union Member States, as well as to others. As my fellow member Kazimierz Ziobro has said, the import of cheap rape and cereals from Ukraine has had a negative impact on purchase prices in Poland.
1. Was the Commission informed about the growing of crops on areas previously contaminated by the Chernobyl accident? Is it monitoring these crops?
2. Does the Commission agree with the Ukrainian arguments which confirm the safety of crops grown in areas contaminated by the Chernobyl accident for people and animals? What tests have been carried out in this matter, and when were they conducted?.
3. Does the Commission intend to continue to monitor crops and agricultural products imported into the European Union from third countries?
4. What measures has the Commission taken in order to prevent the import of cereals and rape grown in the contaminated areas of Ukraine and Kazakhstan?
I can just see the spurned American agri-businessmen surreptitiously buying up this toxic Ukrainian land on the cheap, greasing some palms in the EU and elsewhere, then dumping on the world market all the poisoned grain they grew on the radioactive Ukrainian land using non GMO seeds. Sweet revenge and a backdoor money maker. Then in a couple years time, the American agri-businessmen can have some actor scientists on their pay roll, dressed up in white lab coats, announce that the Ukrainian wheat is radioactive. Monsanto will even go as far as suing the Ukraine for negligence and forcing the Ukraine into receivership (To ultimately become one giant Monsanto GMO grain field. The small Ukrainian farmers get sent packing once again).
Luckily for the world, Monsanto has a GMO wheat which actually synthesizes carbon dioxide and water using radiation instead of sunlight. Moreover, the wheat has been made extra rich in iodine to assuage all those concerned soccer moms who are tired of watching their children throw up all day from all the radiation they are awash in. This GMO radiation antidote will put American agri-business and Madison Avenue right back on top and all the sanctimonious BRICSA competition can go suck a heirloom tomato fertilized with the contents of a fukishima fuel rod.
Booooyaaaa! USA! USA!
And somewhere in India a village will quietly grow a heirloom grain which also eats radiation, developed after the last great atomic war many thousands of years ago.
You have the most vivid imagination, much appreciated. I guess the revolution will be televised after all, I just need to be living in a trailer park!
