One of the more outspoken and courageous challengers and researchers to the myth of the safety of GMOs has been Mr. Jon Rappaport, whose "No More Fake News" column often runs articles on the issue. I ran across this article (and actually, several readers here did too, who also sent it to me...so my thanks once again folks), and it just had to make the "final cut" in this weeks' "blogging day", for there's are three phrases in the second paragraph of this article that caught my eye almost immediately. See if you can guess which ones:
Not One Case of Harm from GMOs
The three phrases that leaped out at me in the second paragraph are these:
"QUOTE ONE: “This compilation is a sample of the scientific references including over 1200 studies, surveys, and analyses that suggest various adverse impacts and potential adverse impacts of genetically engineered (GE/GMO) crops, foods and related pesticides. This list contains references regarding health impacts, environmental impacts, including impact of non-target organisms (NTOs), resistance of target organisms, genetic drift and drift of pesticides, horizontal gene transfer, unintended effects, as well as references regarding yields, social impact, ethics, economics and regulations. In most cases, links are provided to the abstracts for the references.” (See gmofreeusa.org, “GMO Science,” for the list of 1237 specific references.) [Emphasis added]
As Mr. Rappaport makes clear, Ms. Glover's statements are simply not true. And before we ponder the implications of the three italicized phrases above, let's consider the implications of Ms. Glover's remarks, for either they are made in ignorance of these or similar studies, and are hence made by someone incompetent to fill the position she fills, or they are made in knowledge of these or similar types of studies, and are hence deliberate dissembling, and a breech of the trust her office. Either way, the implications are not very good, but they are symptomatic of the sort of corruption that now is the established norm in western "democracies", which increasingly appear as nothing but fronts or shills for corporate interests. The people be damned.
But the three phrases are arresting, for regular readers here will recall that just yesterday I blogged about Russia's consideration of a full moratorium on GMOs, and its tacit consideration of entering the global agriculture market as a purveyor of non-GMO seeds and crops(a move which I have been predicting would emerge from one of the BRICSA nations eventually). Again, I also recently blogged about a recent scientific study that indicates that GMO gene sequences are entering human bloodstreams by "an unknown mechanism," similar to speculations my co-author Dr. Scott D de Hart and I entertained when we were researching and writing Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas.
In a recent blog I even speculated (in my usual high octane fashion) about the horrifying possibility that maybe that "unknown mechanism" was entirely known by certain groups, entities, or individuals within the American military-industrial complex, and that GMOs were given a "green light" for precisely that reason: i.e., as a vehicle for the covert modification of humanity.
But the studies Mr. Rappaport references, while not dealing with "unknown mechanisms" and considerably more down to earth and prosaic, are equally horrifying in their potentiality; ponder those phrases - , genetic drift and drift of pesticides, horizontal gene transfer - carefully and those potentialities become immediately evident.
It's when those potentialities are contemplated within the context of the Russian moves toward a moratorium that I blogged about yesterday that the larger picture of western agribusiness giants like Duponzanto and Mon(ster)santo becomes gloomier, and the geopolitical and economic stakes become even higher, for it means nothing less than that a major world power - Russia - is positioning itself to be the spokesman for those groups and concerns within western nations themselves that their own corrupt and corporatized governments are no longer willing or able to heed; and Russia is doing so ably and deftly. And that leads to even wider scenarios and implications...
...scenarios and implications that can be summed up in the words "Two can play the covert operations game." Whether Russia chooses to play that game or not is, really, at this juncture, immaterial, for it is apparent from the article that appeared in RT concerning the GMO moratorium that it is considering playing the game of "alternative to corrupted food supply." And that's significant enough.

...oh... and before I forget. There's now more evidence connecting "Roundup" with chronic fatal kidney disease. Granted, it's not directly related to GMOs, but it does involve a certain "we couldn't care less about humanity the bottom line is our profits" corporation that has become synonymous with the heavy-handed and corrupt practices of mercantilism associated with GMOs" :
