BIG AGRICULTURE, GMOs, AND THE UKRAINE
Here's another article, from earlier this year (March in fact), about the big agriculture lurking in the background of the events that have unfolded in the Ukraine, and again, it was shared with us by Catherine Austin Fitts. This one, folks, shines the light of an even more enlightening context on Mr. Putin's recent moves to ban western agricultural imports - and the Russian flirtation with a complete ban on GMOs:
Corporate Interests Behind Ukraine Putsch
Beyond the general context that this article provides in illuminating the backdrop for Russia's recent ban of agricultural products from the USA, EU, Australia, and Canada, however, there is one very significant statement of detail that puts this ban - and the talk within Russia of a total ban on GMOs within that country - into an even more interesting light:
"On Dec. 13, Cargill announced the purchase of a stake in a Black Sea port. Cargill’s port at Novorossiysk — to the east of Russia’s strategically significant and historically important Crimean naval base — gives them a major entry-point to Russian markets and adds them to the list of Big Ag companies investing in ports around the Black Sea, both in Russia and Ukraine(sic)."
In other words, part of the hidden story behind the Ukrainian mess is what appears to be a larger agenda: the penetration of Russian agriculture by GMOs, with all the corresponding things this has brought with it elsewhere: imposition of American standards of patent law on foreign nations and therewith, the controls over agricultural production that this ultimately issues in (not to mention, massive profits for the "agribusiness" companies that stand to gain new markets for their scientifically questionable products and claims).
Thus, one may view the Russian calls for complete moratorium on GMO planting within Russia, as well as Mr. Putin's most recent signature on a decree prohibiting agricultural imports from the USA, EU, Australia and Canada, as being to some degree a direct strike against this attempt to penetrate Russian agricultural markets via Black Sea Ports (and this, as the reader will have noted, also points out yet another possible hidden agenda behind the Western fury over Russia's acceptance of the referendum in the Crimea to return to Russian jurisdiction, for without the famous Black Sea port of Sevastopol, traditional home of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Russia's ability to interdict commerce to other Black Sea Ports would have been severely curtailed.)
As I have noted in previous blogs, Russia plans to turn to China, Turkey, and to Brazil, Argentina, and other South American nations, for its imports. Those nations already have significant GMO penetration, and in China's case, GMO bans.
What remains to be seen is whether, as I have also argued, this is the first step of a long term coordinated strategy to pry those nations away from their serfdom to the big western agribusiness companies.
See you on the flip side...

Lost, are you really lost? Are you in the ‘dark’ as to what is going on? Are you really, lost? This is about BRICSA versus the Regime, not just Russia versus the Regime. Ask the White House for your next move, all you got to do is to ask.

THE URBAN FARMING DIALECTIC (BURLINGTON VT STYLE) My buddy, a long time in VT and chronically underemployed, recently inherited some money and bought a house in Burlington on a 1/3 of an acre and is growing a good amount of food. He wanted a pond so he got the permit. He wanted chickens and a fence so he got the permits. Now the city bureaucrats in “progressive” Burlington are sending city tax guys to “reappraise” his property and likely jack up his property taxes wiping away any savings he earned from his sweat. I doubt a chicken coop is going to enhance his home’s value.
Saw GMO corn for the first time in VT and it is so hideous and sinister looking….as if it sprung up from hell itself!
Cargill … brought to our attention by Elm on 8/17/14 @ 3:05 pm under “NYU PROFESSOR MYSTIFIED …” and now this:
“APPARENT MISSILE STRIKE ON IDLED CARGILL PLANT IN UKRAINE”
Standard operational procedure just as the natives who where conquered over the last five hundred years. First they get their victims to disparage their healthy native agriculture and industries then they hook them the conquerors junkie products Russia and the other BRICSA alliance are quit rightly trying to put a end to this racket. The lives of their people depends on they succeeding it’s victory or slavery-death time.
I still think most are still missing the ‘big picture’ about the Ukraine because most have not yet connected the dots;
as ‘nasty-reared’ Henry Kissinger once stated: “if you control oil you control nations; if you control food you control people”
so which country is the bread basket of Europe (always has been) because of its rich soil?- three guesses…
any wonder why there has always been ‘strife’ in/over the Ukraine?- I still cannot figure out for the life of me (I tend to think practically- silly me) why no-one else has not yet seen this aspect of things-
honies, it’s a FOOD war between who has/become/owns the economic agrarian upper hand of the Ukraine- why can’t anyone yet see this aspect?- I’m baffled-
stay well all-

Was Russia importing vast quantities of US maize and soy beans? Those are the only two big GM crops so far.
