THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: THE FDA WANTS TO “MONITOR ...
I had to blod about this one, because when one talks about "too little, too late," this fits the bill, and it's right up there with the Magic Bullet, with the nineteen Arab terrorists managed to pull of 9/11 in such a way that it was "coincidentally" during several drills mimicking aspects of the operation, and finally, right up there with "Hi, we're the government. We're here to help you." THis was found by Mr. J.C., and since it concerns the topic of glyphosphate, the nasty ingredient in so much pesticide and in some GMOs, I had to pass it along, if for the sheer bouts of hysterical laughter that it will provoke in anyone who has been following the GMO story:
One has to give credit to Time magazine for reporting on this story, since the GMO issue rarely makes any headway with the American lamestream media. Here, the two opening paragraphs say it all, and additionally, constitute a major reason why so many American's are simply fed up with their "goobernment":
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the nation’s chief food safety regulator, plans to start testing certain foods for residues of the world’s most widely used weed killer after the World Health Organization’s cancer experts last year declared the chemical a probable human carcinogen.
The FDA’s move comes amid growing public concern about the safety of the herbicide known as glyphosate, and comes after the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) rebuked the agency for failing to do such assessments and for not disclosing that short-coming to the public.
Now, besides the amusing scene of FedGov, Inc., having one department of its increasingly tyrannical sprawl rebuking another, is the idea that the FDA would be an impartial administrator in this instance anyway. We all know how the major agribusiness companies like IG. Farbensanto were able to buy influence during wht first Bush administration (geez, what is it about that hideous family?) and under the principal of "substantial equivalence" were able to get a dramatic relaxation of regulations on testing of their GMO products. After all, if it looks like corn and tastes like corn, that must mean it's "substantially equivalent" to just plain old corn, and therefore, we don't need to do all that nasty testing, and beside, we already have, and here's the results, and it's perfectly safe, see? F. William Engdahl's Seeds of Destruction, documents the utter fiction of this idea, which, incidentally, was conveniently jettisoned when it came time to file patents for their GMO crops, and pursue unlucky farmers in a variety of draconian ways. Engdalh also copiously documented the revolving door between "agribusiness" and the FDA, to the extent that the latter was but a department of the businesses that really ran it.
Thus, having the FDA monitoring glyphosphate years after studies of its carcinogenic properties were uncovered by scientists in France and elsewhere who were, thankfully, not on IG Farbensanto's payroll, is a little like having G.W. Bush appoint commissioners to the "independent" 9/11 commission, or like inviting representatives from the CIA, big oil, banking, Wall Street, and the Mafia, investigate the assassination of President Kennedy.
Oh.... wait... they already did that!
But wait, it gets worse. According to the Time article, the GAO may have actually had to shame the FDA into doing the job it should have been doing in the late 1980s:
The GAO reported that it found multiple deficiencies in the FDA’s pesticide residue testing program, and specifically cited a failure to test for glyphosate, which the GAO called the “most used agricultural pesticide.”
“Maybe we shamed them into it,” said John Neumann, a spokesman for the GAO FDA report. Neumann said the GAO did not demand that FDA conduct such testing, but said at the very least, FDA needed to disclose the lack of testing. The GAO will be reviewing FDA’s progress on meeting all of the GAO recommendations in June, Neumann added. “There were significant limitations to the credibility of their data,” he said.
And of course, there are the usual denials from IG Farbensanto:
Monsanto brings in about $5 billion annually in revenues from glyphosate. The company and other agribusiness interests say that there is no valid evidence linking glyphosate to disease or illness and trace amounts of glyphosate residues on food are nothing to fear. They say there are numerous studies that have determined glyphosate to be safe.
So, before you think twice about trusting any findings the FDA may make, remember that all this began under King George I, and all in the name of "science" bought and paid for by the very companies that want the product on the market, and by the very agency that Mr. Engdahl so meticulously documentated was but a revolving door for people who worked for the GMO cartels.
Trust the FDA? Sure, if you trust the 9/11 commission, the Warren report, or, for that matter, blaming the sinking of the USS Maine on Spain.
See you on the flip side...

So true Marcos that’s what they are plus murderers, what a joke this whole FDA testing is , these people must think we’re stoopid or something!
Nevermind corn and soy, they should start the testing with wheat. It is a common practice in wheat farming to spray the crop directly with roundup, as killing the immature plants amongst those ready to harvest gives a small but greater return of harvestable crop. One wonders what connection there might be between glyphosate in the grain and celiac disease and the various levels of gluten intolerance.
My thoughts as well.
I’ve already adjusted my vocabulary for these times from the ridiculous and ludicrous to the utterly insane, which is a legal term more so than a medical one and, in the case of the ruling elite, hereditary and very permanent from inter and intra breeding for one heck of a long time. But now that insane has come unto common usage, I’m stuck as to where to go next. Is there a linguist somewhere nearby?
Good to see HAL838!
Yes, Totally agree!
Just look at TPP, TISA, TTIP!
How the heck are ya?
Yes, we lost our government on Xmas Eve 1913.
But I think we are starting to get it back ;~)
The see saw is about to tip the other way by the end of this year.
I know that ‘I’ can’t take any more….up close and personal, too much !!!
Just finished The God’s Eye View by Barry Eisler, a novel show just portraying just how up-close and personnel it’s getting.
In fact, after setting down my current novel[Oversight by Thomas Claburn], I came across you iconic nom de plume. How serendipitous!
Little did I realize, years ago, that such madness would so encompass our epitomize our world of today.
Yet, as a reader, I suppose it was in the cards. As, my favorite novel is Scarmouche, beginning speaks of being born into a world gone half/mad.
So HAL838, have we’ve progressed?
It’s me HAL838,
typos, etc., an editor’s nightmare.
I am at a complete loss of words. Oh, for a dram of hope to keep going.
Cue… an anthem: https://youtu.be/-J9AjWomvE0
Agreed, All I can do is face palm.
Hmmm… all I can say is, too little, too late, too slipshoddy. Yes, slipshod is a word I have used numerous times. As well as lollygagging.
U.S.Gov.Inc. has been lollygaggin’ for far too long on this issue for their slipshoddy attempt at this study to make any real difference or do anything to re-mediate the harm which they hath wrought upon the world. The ill-gotten gains of these monstersanto companies far outweighs the possibility that any legitimate outcome will be forthcoming. IMO.
This fits with new findings regarding gut bacteria. Apparently obesity is linked to the micro biology of the gut. experiments With rats, (poor bastards), show that gut bacteria from an obese rat placed into a lean rat turns it obese even though food intake Remains same and visa versa.
So if your obese you can get a turkey baster and a lean friends fecal matter, insert and stand on your head awhile and you’ll change the biology of your gut and lose weight without going to the gym.
LOL, just couldn’t convince my wife it was that simple…
It is difficult to swallow…
Uh, …. I thought this was Giza Death Star but apparently it’s “Cracked.com” What you want is a gut cleansing diet and LOTS of Very high quality pro-biotics. Dan, that is Just nasty lol.
Worse still is one researcher went so far as to insert in himself the fecal matter of a particularly healthy African tribesman…
And I’ve just discovered there is a whole industry of poo pills…
I think it safe to say the world has gone completely nuts now
I’m really fairly obsessed with gut health and what your talking about sounds like complete BS, granted disgustingly hilarious BS .so any way I really hope your trolling on the poo pill thing.
Don’t shoot me I’m just the piano player.
dan and scooter,
joe mercola jumped on that wagon months if not years ago. it’s risky stuff but much better efficacy that the other ahem crap lamestream medicine’s been trying. most often i’ve read of it lately on c-diff cases. i’ll stick with raw fresh saur kraut and yogurt thank you. and no antibiotics and hopefully no roundup special salad dressing.
I’ve encountered people from the food transportation industry that say when products from other countries come in on the boat, after being inspected, they just stamp an organic label on them. Just throwing that out there. Glyphosate the gut killer.
Here is Engdahl in his latest interview with Ellen Brown discussing these issues and others that we at this site continually discuss.

The problem is our elites have never believed in government and wouldn’t know what it is if the tripped over one. They’re petty thieves and murders, tortures at heart. They confuse power with managing gangs with military cheating with trade stealing with taxing extortion with banking poisoning with food and healthcare.
Let’s not forget the real reason behind the “outbreak” of microcephaly in Brazil. More profit for Monstersanto, more calls to add to the already 71 different vaccines they want to pump into your children, and more depopulation for the NWO and globalist eugenics crowd.
