WASHINGTON STATE LAUNCHES LAWSUIT AGAINST MON(STER)SANTO

WASHINGTON STATE LAUNCHES LAWSUIT AGAINST MON(STER)SANTO

This article was shared by Mr. S.C., and I want to pass it along here, along with my usual high octane speculation, which, in this case, is really high octane speculation:

Washington State Launches Historic Lawsuit Against Monsanto Over PCBs

Regular readers of this website know that I am not exactly a friend to GMOs, nor, for that matter, to vaccines. And, for the record, I am not in principle opposed to either, i.e., I am not opposed to the concept of vaccines nor to that of GMOs. After all, Jenner's small pox vaccine worked very well, and so did the Sabin polio vaccine. But as I've pointed out, there were problems with the Salk vaccine, and there are certainly problems that studies have shown linking vaccine cocktails to autism, and linking GMOs to cancers and other health risks.

My chief opposition all along to these technologies has not been to the technology itself, but rather against the shoddy bought-and-paid-for corporate "science" assuring us that there is nothing wrong with the technologies as they stand. Additionally, my opposition has also been against the corporate strong-arming of farmers, and to dissenting opinion as they seek to control the scientific narrative, and therefore the public discussion, of these technologies and their blowback effects. Not for nothing has Russia decided against GMOs until after some long term and extensive testing. And to a certain extent, I think we can credit those independent scientists in the west who have made studies of GMOs and reached opinions contrary to that of the corporate-goverment scientific sector.

Which brings me to a problem with this article. One might be inclined, as I was, to initially cheer the idea that finally, someone, somewhere, is bringing suit against one of the world's most abhorrent corporations, which we refer to on this site as Mon(ster)santo, or alternatively, I.G. Farbensanto. You'll note that the suit is not directly related to GMOs, but rather, to a chemical group known as PCB's, of which Mon(ster)santo was a chief producer during years that their use and dissemination was entirely legal. And the suit is being brought decades after their use was banned.

This seems to me to be an egregious case of reaching too far, for if corporations - or anyone else for that matter - were to be held liable for something entirely legal, then scientific development would come to a screeching halt.

But, in this case, as the article also notes, there is some evidence that Mon(ster)santo allegedly knew of, and covered up, the toxicity and risks of PCBs:

“Monsanto produced PCBs for decades while hiding what they knew about the toxic chemicals’ harm to human health and the environment,” Ferguson noted during the press conference.

There is proof that Monsanto knew about and deliberately covered up the dangers posed by PCBs. The AP reported:

“In 1937, an internal memo said testing on animals showed ‘systemic toxic effects’ from prolonged exposure by inhaling PCB fumes or ingestion. In 1969, a company committee on PCBs noted, ‘There is too much customer/market need and selfishly too much Monsanto profit to go out.’”

In a statement provided to the wire service, a Monsanto spokesperson called the state’s lawsuit “experimental because it seeks to target a product manufacturer for selling a lawful and useful chemical four to eight decades ago that was applied by the U.S. government, Washington State, local cities, and industries into many products to make them safer.”

Stop and consider that: the original memo was apparently dated in 1937, and the decision to keep producing the products for no other motive that pure greed, was made in 1969. In other words, we have potentially a pattern of decades of deliberate knowledge and cover-up, all for the sake of profits.

What's interesting to speculate and ponder upon here is that, in such a lawsuit, the subpoena power of the state of Washington could conceivably find other internal memoranda about similar patterns of knowledge and cover-up, and as things get rolling, that could issue in more lawsuits, from more states, foreign nations, and private individuals, and with those, the whole web of "corporate science" and government-corporation interlock and mercantilism might be exposed for all to see, and not remain limited, as it is now, to those of us following the issue. And that's not bad just for Mon(ster)santo, it's bad for the whole agribusiness GMO dream. And that is a good thing.

See you on the...

...oh, one more thing: Memo to Bayer: you might want to rethink that merger with Mon(ster)santo.

See you on the flip side...

  1. And the revenge by the Deep State if Monsanto can’t grow their product in Washington State: how about biblical destruction of the state using a suddenly activated Mount St. Helens? Surely the seismic technology exists to trigger a volcano? If Monsanto can’t grow their “food” product in Washington State then nobody will. Surely nobody thought these brass knuckle tactics were reserved solely for foreign nations? And after the lava finally stops flowing and the entire state population has been sent packing or worse– melted, the lava encrusted land can be auctioned off to the rich Chinese who are desperate to get their capital out of their country and are willing to buy any scrap of west coast real estate no matter how crappy it is.

    In fact why not turn the man-made activation of volcanoes into an extortion racket and in the process maybe even create an entirely new (or old) religion? The Deep State could start popping off volcanoes, or at least get them rumbling, and based on the memories of what happened in Washington State and its total obliteration, force the locals in proximity to the percolating volcanoes to not just pay up cash to turn the volcano machine off, but also throw a few of their children into the volcano as well as an act of sacrifice? This, in my estimation, would be the best way to take child ritual murder out of the dungeons and make it mainstream again, maybe even rivaling or even replacing the current religions that hold sway. Because let’s face it, who wouldn’t use any means possible to stop the calamity of an exploding volcano?

  2. Excellent article, Dr. Farrell, and an excellent development in the US State of Washington.

    I sincerely hope that the US State of Washington uses its subpoena powers to dig deeply into Dr. Mengele’s pit at the heart of Monsatan.

    Commercial law is all about Big Business.
    To survive you needed big clients with big cases who paid big bucks.
    Today hedge funds, always in search of new markets to score outlandish profits, have focused on litigation financing. But hedge funds weren’t banks. Regulatory Washington was once again asleep at the wheel[probably being paid to do so]. Now they’re lending money to law firms to finance cases where up-front money simply wasn’t available at interest rates sky-high and therefore unlawful IF it had come from a bank[ DC, district of corruption, asleep again].
    So Big Law took a high-board dive into deep waters of OPM to bet on legal case outcomes.

    1. Robert Barricklow

      And the hedge funds showered money on law firms in what was called nonrecourse financing. Meaning if the case was lost, the law firm owed nothing further on the money it borrowed The loan was completely wiped off its books, and the hedge fund took the hit
      Now law firms are adding a kicker to their hourly rates in what’s being called a success fee. The hedge funds then take a portion of that success fee. So between monthly interest payments and their share of success fees, incoming money was large enough to offset funds lost on unsuccessful cases.
      All this prelude to drive home this point: Big Law has placed its invisible hand on the blackboard eraser and begun smoothing way the chalk line between lawyering as a profession and lawyering as Wall Street wheeling & dealing.
      Now that we have Bayer, Wall Street & Big Law in bed together; what could possibly go wrong?

  4. PCB’s are in most plastics, one thing I have never really understood is this bottled water “fad”. So you “hip” people keep buying it and getting your daily dose straight from the bottle it is packaged in.
    Now there’s a scam the size of the universe. Why on earth would I pay that kind of “money” for something I can get out of my tap, straight from my deep well, with all the earths benefits within it. You city folks will need to put a decent filter on your water though, there’s no telling “what’s in your water”.

  5. Actually, there is little to no evidence that vaccines have done any good at all. If you look at the graphs of the declines (most diseases vaccinated against were already in deep declines before the introduction of vaccines), the slope of the curve of the declines did not change after the introduction of vaccines. (Using CDC’s own data)

    Polio has been linked rather significantly to DDT (the rate of “infection” of polio almost exactly matches the production figures for DDT from the previous year), and the huge drop in polio cases which is often cited the year after the introduction of killed virus vaccines is due to the reclassification of several types of meningitis – a statistical ploy, not an actual decline.

    As with many “infectious” diseases, many people are never diagnosed by cultured microbes, but by clinical symptoms. Hence, the 60 percent of African AIDS cases which are clinical diagnoses and which turn out not to be AIDS when the patients are actually tested (previously diagnosed as “wasting disease,” which presents exactly the same symptoms as AIDS).

    Introducing foreign proteins and heavy metal/chemical adjuvants directly into the body, passing the bodies defenses, is not only a bad idea, it is having hugely detrimental effects ( and is why big pharma is exempt from damage suits for vaccine damage – all those claims being handled by a specially rigged system, still costing the US taxpayer over 3 billion dollars so far, despite 99 percent of cases being rejected out of hand.)

    Also interesting, especially in light of the current attack on homeopathy, is the fact that the whole idea for vaccines came from homeopathy’s “law of similars.”

    Allopathic medicine is a much bigger and deadlier con game than most people are willing to face. Out of the pharmacopia of tens of thousands of drugs, only about 500 are actually medically useful, and most of those are plant-based. Most drugs only suppress symptoms, and do absolutely nothing for the underlying cause of the illness.

    As the saying goes in “modern” medicine, a patient cured is a customer lost.

    1. Also, concerning polio (and other “infectious” diseases), doctors who treated patients with massive doses of vitamin C had a massively higher cure rate than doctors who used allopathic methods. In one case, a doctor was even able to reverse a year of paralysis in one young girl with massive (tens of grams per day) doses of Vitamin C.

      This is particularly striking in the Spanish flu epidemic of the early 1900s, where doctors using Vitamin C had and 85 percent cure rate, while doctors who did not had a 95 percent death rate.

      In fact, Massive doses of Vitamin C, especially given intravenously, would virtually negate the need for vaccines at all. It is an absolute viricide (kills every known virus), and is very benign in the body.

      It also cannot be patented, therefore it is not very well like in “modern” medicine. There is a great book based on peer-reviewed literature called “Curing The Incurable.” Well worth reading, very well referenced and cited.

  6. Big tobacco companies paid out huge amounts of money to the states for any liabilities or any harm their products produce. Tobacco is a product that remains lawful to manufacturer and sell. It is very profitable and raises lots of tax revenue.

  7. By knowing PCB were dangerous and keeping mum about them after they bought the manufacturer. Monsanto assume the liabilities for any harm those products produce their greed and lust for control have blinded them to their company good name which by their actions they have tarnish. They have also with other agribusiness companies rendered the use of GMO’s suspect and subject of fear and loathing instead something that could be use with confidence and a degree of safety.

  8. Waited to be a German firm to slam it with fines. Seems to be a pass time of the USA sanctioned no doubt by Frau Merkel. If a war does not make the EU as broke as possible other ways will do.

  9. Mon(ster)santo was already under an heavy attack from all direction, but Bayer still try to merge with Mon(ster)santo with much higher market value, even their share holder was complaining about the way over paying price, that is the indication of they are not majorly aim at the profit, there could be another agenda behind the merge. Eugenics, eugenics, eugenics, they are Nazis right? LOL

    1. Euphemisms, euphemisms, euphemisms. Nazi’s.. oh indeed. Mais bien sur. Who else could it possible be. The whole racket stinks of high-moralled blond strength. Not a black-hair or zionistic protocol amongst them.
