THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: GMO GEOPOLITICS HITS THE UKRAINE

For a few years, after I became aware of the GMO issue and the potential dangers it poses not only for the long-term human food supply, and human health, and even, the health of science itself, I have been offering the hypothesis that the BRICSA nations might inevitably make the GMO a geopolitical issue, in a kind of reversal of the corporate strategy that western agribusiness giants like I.G. Farbensanto, Sycrudda, and so on, have pursued at the beck and call of their globaloney masters. That strategy, to put it succinctly, has been to gain control of the world's food supply by replacing natural "heirloom" seeds with far more expensive genetically engineered seeds that are protected under patent law. By seeking to supplant such heirloom seeds with their creations, these planners have sought to control the very issues of life itself over a vast amount of the global population. Food, via the GMO, has been weaponized, so to speak. In response to this "GMO geopolitics," I have suggested that eventually the BRICSA nations might seek to make non-GMO seeds and easy access to them a "human rights issue" in a kind of reverse GMo gopolitics, a suggestion that has taken on a particular piquancy given the efforts of IG Farbensanto to quash opposition in the Hawaiian county of Maui.

Now, it seems, there is more confirmation of the view that GMO geopolitics is in full swing; consider this article shared by Ms. M.W.:

Monsanto is Buying Lands

The logic outlined by Mr. Platov, author of the above article, is clear: (1) The Ukraine has no developed set of laws concerning land or land use, (2) It is in the middle of a financial crisis, and needs money (3) land is cheap. Enter, as Mr. Platov indicates, western agribusiness giants like Mon(ster)santo.

It is a perfect location to play GMO geopolitics, and that, indeed, is what appears to be taking place. Recall only that Russia has made numerous statements to the effect that it intends to conduct long term studies of the effects of GMOs on the environment and human health, and that certain GMO products have already been heavily regulated, and you get the idea; The Ukraine is perfectly situated to be the hub to spread GMOs westward into Europe and eastward into Russia. And, as Mr. platov also forcefully argues, the buying of cheap land, not only in The Ukraine but in Africa for the purposes of agricultural production is the newest round of western colonialism. Add to this the use of patent law, and patented plants, and a further layer of corporate-colonialism is added to the equation. As I pointed out a couple of years ago, the agribusiness giants had acquired port facilities for the Ukraine; now, their seeds have come home to sprout, and there is little to prevent it, since it is their land.

This brings the geopolitical issue home to roost, and with a vengeance, for with US agribusiness giants like Mon(ster)santo committing heavy financial resources to the Ukraine, American military commitments - if they are not already there - will soon follow.

And there, too, the BRICSA nations have a golden opportunity in the form of the propaganda value that such action entails, for how - in the final analysis - does one justify, or defend, the commitment of military resources to protect and defend a corporation's 'rights" to tinker with, and potentially pollute the environment and poison the food supply?

Now you know why I call the whole enterprise of GMOs and the devious and heavy-handed mercantilist tactics used by the corporations pushing them and to defend them, "IG Farbensanto". They, and their tactics, from Maui to Maidan, deserve nothing but disdain, and disgust.

See you on the flip side...

    Najlepszy akcji czy ty chlopcze klikasz z zakladu psychiatrycznego?

  2. Those poor Ukrainian people, first they are saddled with billions in IMF loans, and now the ultimate “small print” in the contract, GMO’S.
    Once the IMF gets their claws into you, the jig is up, and they can dictate the “terms” of the loans. But I’ll bet their sleezy politicians wont be eating the stuff, oh no, they will sit in their towers and eat and drink the best. I wonder where this has happened before ??

    Well it must be Monday.
    My Computer is buzzing from high CPU usage.
    At http://blacklistednews.com/

    reading an article by Paul Craig Roberts
    The Limits of Propaganda
    and it’s a doozy!

    Ties in with Dr. Farrell’s blog today as well.
    [Incidentally, went to get the url; but my computer
    kept getting unable to access/web page not found/ etc., etc.]

  4. EXTERMINATE seems to be the corporatcracy mantra poison every fertile piece of land on this planet. ALL HAIL MANMON THE GOD OF THE PLUTOCRATS and remember PLUTO was the Roman god of the underworld.

    The warnings of patenting life fell on commercialized-deaf ear$ of Hog$ at the biological-patented-life trough$. Chief Warren Burger’s “the gruesome parade of horribles” coming soon down the patented monopolized-life-pipelines. Of course the commissioner of patents and trademarks assured the public that humans were being excluded, ONLY BECAUSE the 13th Amendment to the Constitution forbids human slavery[to be made OBSOLETE soon by the TPP Treaty]; but slavery is profitable[just ask the prison-industrial-complex], and the TPP will have a closed-door meeting to determine it’s legality. Also they are revisiting the question of elements; after all, the chemists were never allowed to patent the chemical periodic table, even though they isolated, purified, and identified the functional qualities if the elements-thus more inventions than discoveries. The TPP will do a telecommunications-mortgage ex post facto true meaning in regards to the inventors of the periodic table.

    This does indeed look like fertile ground for hearts & minds to decide for themselves. That is of course still subject to the TPP. After all, they have absolutely no elected officials to muddy-up their privatized waters.

    1. TTP is rigged from the get go and behind closed doors, then “fast tracked” into law before we even know what’s in it. Once it’s in place the tax paid lawyers negotiate between the country’s.
      SB-252 bill creates Tax Free Zones, where company’s and employees pay no taxes for 10 years, welcome China.
      SB-232 Bill wants to give public land to the state to run which then they sell off and restrict access to the general public.
      The Ukraine is another land grab.
      Putting everything into place, they are.

        The TPP is traitorous to liberty.
        The TPP anti-being. It is inhuman.
        It benefits only the dead; corps or corporations.
        It usurps the Constitutions of any governments by signing away the souls of “their” so-called citizens.

  6. Dupontsanto is the borg. It really take the breath away, the pure, relentless, parasitic and shameless evil of the coporatocracy.

  7. The Zimbabwe/ China/ serf model of farming is the future “they” have been chasing after.
    Why is it that Boer farmers being killed and kicked off of land is never reported, but it is front page news of a “Exodus” out of France because of name calling going into the synagogue…..and they are being offered asylum into Canada (and of course all the freebies that go along with it).

    …I hate to admit it, but they just might have a point.
