WILL OREGON FARMERS FINALLY BE ABLE TO SUE FOR GMO CONTAMINATION?

Mr. B.H. found this article, and if you've been following the whole story of GMOs and the underhanded and unethical behavior of I.G.Farbensanto over the years, this is a whopper-doozie, and if true, finally a bit of good news.

For those who haven't, a bit of a review might be necessary. When GMOs first came into play during the administration of G.H.W. Bush (who else?), I.G. Farbensanto (our code for the big "agribusiness" companies) developed the principle of "substantial equivalence" to avoid the normal procedures of testing products. Substantial equivalence simply meant that, as far as regulatory policy was concerned, GMO products were no different than ordinary natural seeds and crops; GMO corn and soy beans and so on were to be treated exactly the same as their natural counterparts, and hence, there was no need for "a closer look." If it looks like a potato and tastes like a potato, then it's a potato.

Except, of course, when it came to licensing fees and sales, in which case, the GMO seeds and crops, which were of course genetically modified and therefore proprietary patented organisms, were owned by I.G. Farbensanto. Farmers could not withhold seeds for subsequent planting. For one thing, the seeds were engineered not to reproduce. Farmers would have to buy more seeds from the same company if they wished to grow and harvest GMO crops. But wait, there's more: I.G. Farbensanto actually sent out spies to make sure their seeds were not being grown on fields where farmers had not paid the requisite licensing fees. If these were discovered, the farmers were sued. "But wait," you might ask, "what about fields that were contaminated by GMO seeds that the farmers didn't want growing in their fields?" Answer: too bad.

That was the one-sided nature of the fascist alliance between I.G. Farbensanto and the government of the USSA.

Unfair? Yes, absolutely. Dangerous manipulation of the food supply? Yes, that too.

Well, finally, farmers that do not want their fields contaminated by this "substantially equivalent" nonsense might get an opportunity to sue I.G. Farbensanto back, if a new bill in Oregon goes through: http://ewao.com/2017/10/06/new-bill-would-allow-farmers-to-sue-monsanto-if-gmo-crops-invade-their-property/

Notably, the article references precisely the non-equal status of farmers under the "current arrangement" who have been squeezed by by agribusiness. Additionally, as the article also points out, the non-GMO farmer's livelihood is in danger by field contaminations from GMOs, which could lose his organic food producer certification status, and make it difficult to support export to countries banning GMOs, a list which is growing (see today's "tidbit').

It doesn't take much imagination to see why the debate in Oregon is so vociferous, but the bottom line is that organic farmers need the same equality before the law as the big agribusiness companies have. Their patents are not in question, and as the article points out, they can choose not to sell there product in Oregon. One can only hope other states will enact similar measures.

In the meantime, I don't know about you, but I continue to spend a little extra money for organic dairy and produce if for no other reason than the behavior of I.G. Farbensanto has been reprehensible, at best.

See you on the flip side....

  1. Oh come on, GMOs are awesome. I mean they boosted the vitamin A content of a species of rice, and that’s going to solve world hunger right?

  2. A statute law, is legal, the land, is lawful…incompetent persons masquerading as wo/men – argue over their right to poison you b/c you live on their legal-land.

    return to the land, and its protected juris-diction (spoken oath) and tell the foreigners to take a hike or face severe liability (give them three strikes/notice of liability) and watch them fall off their horse…so high…they were…damn the fall…it comes out of nowhere 🙂

    (the fact that the “bad guys” are throwing a bone show to one here, the compassion and humanity these people, though barely, possess b/c if this world were run by the “dark” then no one would be able to stop it – choice is consciousness – sadly mostly can’t choose of their own souls desires, allowing that human ego to dictate the diction that is all fiction)

    In simply an aside, as I wish to undress this hoopla of all living presidents pitching for “disaster relief”. Disaster that has become their bread and butter; of an act following these staged-circuses of disaster. In reality all that’s needed is “our” const itution[Art1, Section 8]: issue the necessary currency onto the Shakespearian disaster stage – build the hospitals, schools, etc., hire the staff. Do that, and more. The sick economy becomes magically healthy. So healthy, these disaster become the envy of the world. Why, it’s just a Benjamin Franlin said. You don’t need a disastrous fascist corporate government: just go back to where we once belonged: “our” original const itution, with its Bill of Rights expanded to include no monopolies/oligopolies; paid for utilities[power/education/transportation/healthcare/banking/ and more. A public infrastructure designed to enable an extremely comp eti tive private sector.
    Unfortunately, this would benefit ALL society; but, those tiny, itsy-bitty few satanic, heartless few…
    would then be in “their” hell:
    A Healthy Living Society For All.

  4. I live in Oregon. I watched several attempts to restrict GMO crops, or even to label them as GMOs in stores, go down to defeat (as suming a fair balloting machine) due to agribusiness throwing-in untold millions of dollars in fear-advertising prior to the voting. It will be interesting to see if the same type of thing happens with this bill…

    Is there even anything left of humanity left…
    in these puppets…
    being pulled by these
    wickedly-cool-strings of ancient technologies?

    There’s ‘organic’ and there’s ‘American organic’.

    http://www.nutritionalanarchy.com/2014/04/14/citric-acid-comes/
    “….mass produced citric acid and ascorbic acid are hidden GMO ingredients….
    Despite being a known hidden GMO, it is even frequently found in certified “Organic” foods – and the USDA and FDA allow it to be in there.”

    This is an old article from 2011. I don’t know what has happened since then:
    https://www.naturalnews.com/034364_infant_formula_DHA_genetically_modified.html
    “…. chemical giant Martek Biosciences uses cronyism to have its patented GMO products classified as organic. The National Organic Program is trying to correct this, but in the meantime the “organic” infant formula or baby food parents feed their children could contain industrial Frankenfood….”

    1. Robert Barricklow

      Yes!
      The fine print, in the definitions of “organic’,
      is getting suspiciously close to:
      “substantially equivalent”.

    I remember when an Amish farmer first planted GMO corn next to our old place in Lancaster County, PA. It looked strange and other worldly – something just didn’t seem right about it. Our horses loved to poach corn from the Amish whenever they could but they wouldn’t touch the GMO corn. This particular farmer never tried GMO corn again. To this day he even has trouble growing Alfalfa or Timothy hay on the same piece of land. The soil microorganisms are screwed up that much after all the Glyphosate.

  8. This is good news for a change, IF the law passes, IF people take on Goliath, and IF they are given fair trials. However, the pockets of these global corporations are DEEP and they can keep you in court until you are bankrupt. The end result is the same; you lose everything and the globalists buy your land for pennies on the dollar.
    Somehow, I get the feeling that this, the droughts and fires in Californication, the hurricanes in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean Islands , as well as other “natural” disasters world wide are related to the UN’s planned Agenda 21/30 where the land is to be “re-purposed” for the exclusive use of the global corporations, and their cronies, as “Wildlife sanctuaries” (for the resources, duh) while those who once lived on it and worked it are more or less forced into those “human habitation” zones (where you will be under constant surveillance and control, duh).
    China hasn’t built all those “ghost cities” for no reason. They are currently forcing people off their traditional farm lands and into these “Ghost towns”. The same thing is occurring here in the Universally Surveilled States of Amerika. Laws have been enacted at the local level which make building “single family” dwellings practically unaffordable due to all the “green” laws; meanwhile multifamily construction is growing rapidly in those zones set aside for “human habitation”.
    “Disaster capitalists” have already flocked to Texas and Florida, and most likely the Islands, offering people 40 cents on the dollar for their destroyed homes. These people are backed by the global corporations and pay cash. Since they understand the population simply will not go along with this “agenda”; now that they have essentially bankrupted the population with endless debt; they can simply buy up what they want with their “fiat Ponzi scheme” profits and do with it as they wish. You don’t actually “own” the land anyway; you’re listed as a “tenant” on the deed; the land itself was part of the US bankruptcy settlement, along with everything else. The UN now owns all the land in fee simple.

    1. WD, I like this post. I fear its passage may prove only symbolic. There are several states with rather interesting traffic laws STILL on the books that will NEVER be enforced. (I love the one where you have to get out of your car at the intersection from a side road to a major thoroughfare, then blow your horn, then discharge your rifle or shotgun to signal to the other drivers that you are getting onto the road for travel!) Laws are only selectively enforced–and always to the benefit of those whose greatest desires benefit the least number of peoples. I fear their motto is literally: “Let them legislate what they want. As long as we control the judiciary we can decide what we want litigated–and when.”

      1. Robert Barricklow

        In fact, so many laws, that prosecutors can pick & choose their victims and/or crimes at will.

    The Grail Runes show how to make an agrarian sun calendar, that is in perpetual conflict with the mercantile moon calendar, the anti-Grail. Originally, Jahve was deified year.

    Today the original Isra-elite agrarians are being witch hunted by false mercantile “Isra-elites”, that attempt – like Satan – to tax the annual cycle of year, that basically is God himself.

    Anno Domini is analogue computer. Pyramid.

  10. If you’re new here, read this as well.. (to understand why the tone here might seem a little aggressive and hostile whilst talking about these vicious underhanded evil manipulative lying poisoning chemical-warfare-producing, recently-bought-back-into-the-Nazi’s-afterWW2-industrial-complex(Bayer…) with advice from Rotheschild (he piloted the deal, if he didnt finance it..so even more evil (more aspartame flavour..)by association… and another thing.. Bayer bought Monsanto in CASH!!)
    Monsanto’s history : http://www.covvha.net/2015/02/16/monsanto-1901-2014-timeline/

    they lie, they kill our children and they are posioning us. If they were doing this 80 years ago, they would have ended up in front of a war crimes tribunal.
    Now they are protected by the governement and they have laws written in order to protect themselves.. They do this because they know that what they are doing should be attacked in the courts of justice everywhere in the world.
