BAYER BEWARE: IG FARBENSANTO AND THE UNASKED QUESTION

Before I get started on today's blog, I want to thank Ms. S.H., Mr. G.L.R., and many others, who sent various versions of the following three articles.

So, with that said, down to business (not to coin a pun):

Shortly after Dewayne Johnson was awarded $289,000,000 in his lawsuit against Mon(ster)santo, Bayer, Mon(ster)santo's new owner, promised it would appeal. It did. And won. Or lost. Or sort of. ... Well, it depends on which side of the fence you're looking at the whole situation from:

Bayer Loses Appeal Over Historic 'RoundUp' Cancer Lawsuit

Now, here's the interesting part:

Monsanto says it will appeal the verdict. 

“Today’s decision does not change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and reviews -- and conclusions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. National Institutes of Health and regulatory authorities around the world -- support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer,” Monsanto Vice President Scott Partridge said in a statement.

Appeal they did and today the verdict came down.

San Francisco superior court judge Suzanne Bolanos had suggested in an initial written ruling this month that she was considering granting a new trial, but her final ruling today largely sided with Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, denying Monsanto's request to overturn the verdict.

As Bloomberg reports, a California state judge rejected Bayer’s arguments that the jury didn’t have any basis to conclude that the herbicide caused an ex-school groundskeeper’s cancer.

However, she has ruled to reduce punitive damages from $250m to $39m, noting in her ruling Monday that if Johnson did not accept the lower punitive damages, she would order a new trial for Monsanto.

"The punitive damages award must be constitutionally reduced to the maximum allowed by due process in this case -- $39,253,209.35 -- equal to the amount of compensatory damages awarded by the jury based on its findings of harm to the plaintiff."

In a recent interview, Johnson told the Guardian that he wanted to see his case have a long-term impact, including new restrictions and labeling for the herbicide.

"I hope [Monsanto] gets the message that people in America and across the world are not ignorant. They have already done their own research,” he said, adding:

“I’m hoping that it snowballs and people really get the picture and they start to make decisions about what they eat, what they spray in their farms.”

This ruling opens Bayer to considerably higher damages as thousands of plaintiffs across the country have made similar legal claims, alleging that glyphosate exposure caused their cancer or resulted in the deaths of their loved ones.

In other words, while it may look like a victory for IG Farbensanto - and regarding our nickname for the GMO cartel, Bayer, of course, was one of the component companies that went to form the notorious IG Farben cartel, along with BASF and Hoechst - it isn't: they would have preferred to walk away from the verdict by having the entire case completely overturned. That would have sent a message to the other litigants lined up to go after them. But now they're in a pickle: they lost their appeal, and if Mr. Johnson decides not to accept the new award, another trial will most likely result in his favor anyway. Either way, it's not good for IG Farbensanto, because the message has been sent, and there's no retracting it.

For IG Farbensanto, here's the problem:

Bayer Stock Crashes After Monsanto Cancer Verdict Upheld By Judge; Analyst Estimates $800 Billion In Future Liability

The problem is that after the judge's announcement on just this one case, Bayer's stock plunged. Now, imagine the announcements for all the cases waiting in the wings. It adds up to this:

The good news is that this ruling affirms the company’s liability for causing illness from their product, and opens the door for more lawsuits and stricter regulation of agrochemicals in the future. Ian Hilliker, an analyst at Jefferies LLC in London, estimated in a note to clients that based on a class action lawsuit involving 8,700 plaintiffs believed to have cancer as a result of glyphosate exposure, Monsanto’s liability could reach $800 billion dollars. To put this in perspective, the original Bayer-Monsanto buyout offer was $57 billion dollars. Clearly, this no longer looks like an "asset" to Bayer and its stockholders.

...a German analyst points out that Bayer's Monsanto acquisition may have precipitated the largest destruction of market capitalization in German stock market history, standing at about 57.7 billion Euros in losses thus far. (Emphasis added)

In other words, Mon(ster)santo's purchase by Bayer has now meant that Bayer has had to pay for it's purchase approximately twice, once, with the original $57 billion, and now, again, with the loss of about 57 billion euros in market value, and it is now exposed to a potential $800 billion in damages from lawsuits. And the bad news is not just coming from across the pound from American and Canadian courts. Bayer has but to look across the Rhine to France to hear more bad news:

Monsanto found Guilty of Chemical Poisoning in Landmark case

In case that isn't enough to convince all but the hardened skeptic that Bayer is in huge trouble, there are many countries that used Mon(ster)santo's products: India, Argentina, Brazil... the list goes on and on. And don't forget Vietnam. You'll recall that one outcome of Mr. Johnson's case was that Vietnam was thinking about preparing a lawsuit for continuing damage to that country's population from after-effects of the use of agent Orange in the Vietnam War. And here's the kicker: some American veterans of that war have claimed similar things, thus raising the bizarre and ironic possibility of a class-action suit by American and Vietnamese families.

There's a big question hovering over all of this, and it's one that is seldom asked, but I simply have to ask it: What in the name of sense was Bayer thinking when it bought Mon(ster)santo? What made the purchase seem like such a sweet deal? The lawsuits were already under way; the company's record and dubious hard-handed practices were being exposed in books, blogs and media from India to South America. No financial analyst worth his salt could have been unaware of these things, nor of the potential risks to Bayer.  Does this mean that Bayer thought it could "handle" these problems by the usual means with which such large corporations handle such things, when they don't get their way in courts, or when someone is standing in their way on the road to becoming a monopoly and a trust? Hire a few thugs, create a few accidents, blackmail a few judges... that sort of thing. Think Rockefeller and Standard Oil here. Maybe, but for a company like Bayer with its own past associations with IG You-know-who, such standard tactics could be very risky.  Which leaves another possibility: Was Bayer simply grossly incompetent? Well, occasionally humans do really stupid things, and thus, so do corporations ("New Coke" anyone? or was that simply a clever marketing gimick to make people want the "Old Coke"?). Was Bayer thus blinded by the potential to become IG Farbensanto once again, and thus rushed into the purchase in order to expand its own corporate power? Well, maybe. Or, lastly, was the purchase engineered by "agents" perhaps infiltrated into one or the other or both corporations?  How better to unload a troublesome company and its looming legal problems, than to dump it into the lap of a foreign corporation with its own murky past, and so much the better if - and it's a big if - there are little indicators of some sort of economic war taking place between the two home countries of both corporations to begin with? And if you're a certain small country in the Middle East, you might be thinking that Bayer needs to pay a higher price for being involved with IG You-know-who a few decades ago, and you might be wanting to help out with those infiltrations and little indicators of economic warfare.

Just a (high octane speculative) thought.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Wanted to share info that was included in GMOs Revealed – an EXCELLENT docu-series on everything-GMO. They produced Vaccines Revealed awhile back, which was also excellent. I have no doubt we will see a tectonic shift in non-GMO marketing and production once the masses gets ahold of this very easy to understand background on what they’re eating.

    The most compelling interviews are with Dr Zach Bush + Dr Jeffry Smith:

    This is likely the reason why Bayer bought Monsanto:
    Shortly before the offer was made to buy Monsanto, Bayer was given by EU and US EPA to put a new GMO on the market. So now the entire western world is transitioning to a new GMO, Liberty Link. Monsanto owns 85-95% of our food supply. As soon as RoundUp Ready plateaus on Wall Street, they’ll replace with Liberty Link and see a whole new life of profits. Of course, Glyphosate and RoudUp will continue to be used around the world.

    It’s RoundUp all over again – no 3rd party analysis was evaluated before approval and there won’t be before it’s widely distributed. This GMO blocks a different amino acid than Glyphosate. Since the 80s glyphosate sales doubled every 6 years. Last year alone 2 billion kgs of a water soluble toxin that robs our soil of chemical and medicinal qualities, were used worldwide (which will double again if the 6 yr pattern holds), to which Liberty Link will be ADDED.

    Only 1/10th of 1% (1000th) of the RoundUp sprayed actually reaches and affects the crops. The rest of it ultimately ends up in the Mississippi River and pollutes everything. 75% of the air samples, rainfall taken throughout the south contains RoundUp

    This is the first time genocide through chemical warfare has been cloaked in a non-war context. We cloaked it as a “green revolution” context in the 1950s and 1960s and then falsely proclaimed the “new” farmer feeding the world and preventing starvation… it’s shielded these crimes from public awareness.

    Compared to the wall of public consciousness that toppled the industry’s stranglehold on the “tobacco science”, there are now MANY more people who eat than smoke back then…we are all eating, drinking, breathing and being rained on by glyphosate. The revolution is ours.

    There are three primary selling points about GMOs that are entirely false:
    1. GMOs increase crop yields (it only takes about 6 years to see significant reduction in yield due to the destruction of the soil)
    2. Increased crop yields were the reason GMOs and RoundUp flooded the marketplace – in actuality, the industry just needed to expand the marketplace and infiltrated Congress and government to implement it, just like the pharma industry has
    3. and no significant health risk has been discovered–the science is overwhelming but most has been covered up since the science industry has also been infiltrated to ensure outcomes, like with the pharma industry.

    As a reminder, the White House had instructed the FDA to promote GMOs: the person in charge of policy at the FDA was Monsanto’s former attorney, Michael Taylor, who later became Monsanto’s V.P. and then moved back as FDA’s Food Czar. Based on a single sentence claiming no differences between GMOs and nonGMOs they allowed GMOs to be put on the market without a single safety study… this was the same company that claimed DDT, Agent Orange and PCBs were safe. And of course this sentence upon which the entire policy was based was a lie.

  2. What if Monsanto has *something* that Bayer wants? What if that *something* is worth the plummeting shares, the expensive lawsuits and other legal entanglements? What if they’re planning to use that *something* elsewhere and all this time, they’ve been testing it on us and it’s worked?

    What if there’s life on Mars and this *something* will finally put an end to it, and now that the quarantine has been lifted, the time to act is now?

  3. Along with many other viable theories presented by commenters, one need only consider the phamacartel’s brilliant orchestration of a virtually unregulated, $billion system to produce, approve and distribute untested vaccine products via the 1986 National Childhood Vaccination Injury Act, which also virtually ensures unmitigated vaccine injuries. With 200+ additional vaccines and half as many legislative proposals for adult+child mandates in the production/approval pipelines, they’re just getting started.

    For over 30 years, all vaccines on the CDC schedule have been designed, tested, bought and sold by the CDC, and administered through a 100% risk-free system, which means vaccine producers are not held responsible for problems with vaccines and it also provides no incentive for improvements and no responsibility to the public, throughout the entire testing/manufacturing/FDA approval/CDC schedule/authority mandating process.

    Before the vaccine market took off in the 80s, due to increasing vaccine injuries with life-long debilitating brain damage and other destructive damage, awards from lawsuits against unsafe vaccines were based on ongoing lifetime care for brain-injuries of approximately $5M/child.

    In turn, the actuaries or insurance companies that rate the risk for these pharmaceutical corporations had seen the raw data of vaccine safety and determined the risk was too high; the pharmaceutical corporations were already being sued for vaccine harm.

    And in response to the insurer’s actions, the manufacturers lobbied the U.S. government to “rescue” the vaccine manufacturers claiming manufacturing was a financial “hardship” that threatened their ability to continue making vaccines. Granted, this was in the 80s but a 2010 Economist article indicated the vaccine industry was a $35 billion/year industry— $25 billion/yr in childhood vaccines, alone (possibly double that now as it is the pharmaceutical industry’s fastest-growing sector if not the largest).

    Over the past decade the pharmaceutical industry, the top lobbyist in D.C., spent over $2.3 Billion lobbying D.C. on its behalf. This is almost double the insurance industry at #2.
    The government did rescue the pharmaceutical industry back in the 80s by creating a highly centralized controlled and corrupt system designed specifically to protect the interests of the vaccine industry as well as the regulatory agencies and government entities that profit from vaccines— and NOT the public who receives vaccines (more and more by mandate) and certainly not those harmed by them.

    EPA scientists have identified 1989 as the “Gateway Year” when all of these unknown diseases suddenly launched. I’d list some horrific statistics on childhood health but I’d guess most here are probably familiar. I’ll just add this reminder: The U.S., which gives infants more vaccines than anywhere else in the developed world, also has the highest infant mortality rate. And for fun, I’ll share this projection by Stephanie Senef, MIT scientist: at the current rate of brain injury/autism we can expect that by 2030 one in two boys will be autistic. Consider the societal impacts if nearly half of all adults are suffering from chronic illness or would be non-contributory, partly or fully incapacitated or requiring full lifetime care. Of course, autism rates are secondary to many other health problems vaccines cause.

    Like pharma’s masterful lobbying efforts that convinced CONgress to “protect” vulnerable vaccine makers, imagine if the world’s altruistic food producers, due to the “unintended” corruption of the seed supply and broad use of GMO and chemical pesticides, convinces CONgress they just can’t afford the risk of “feeding the world”…

    1. Reminds me of: Have Gun Will Travel.
      In the 21st Century; the syringe has replaced the gun.
      Maybe not as quick; but, the numbers are telling.
      Or, more to the point…
      not accountable.

  4. ” What made the purchase seem like such a sweet deal?”

    Hillary was supposed to have won. The Monsanto Judges were supposed to be in place to ensure lawsuits were crushed and plaintiffs driven to suicide through depression. Dr F. you’ve seen the stories in India, pretty much everyone on this site knows the story of Monsanto. Bayer bought it up because they’re pretty much the same company and have been for years.. Remember that Monsanto even in its formative years learnt how to play the court system to ensure that they always won.
    1901: Monsanto was founded in St. Louis, Missouri by John Francis Queeny, a 30-year veteran of the pharmaceutical industry working at Meyer Brothers Drug Company, using money borrowed from COCA-COLA.
    1902: Monsanto manufactures its first product, the artificial sweetener Saccharin, which Monsanto sold to the Coca-Cola Company. The U.S. government later files suit over the safety of Saccharin – but loses.
    1917 the U.S. government filed suit over the safety of saccharin as a test case at Monsanto’s request. ((AT MONSANTO’s REQUEST!!!) The suit was dismissed in 1925, ending the government’s unsuccessfulattempts then to prove saccharin as harmful.
    1926: Environmental policy was generally governed by local governments, Monsanto Chemical Company founded and incorporated the town of Monsanto, later renamed Sauget, Illinois, to provide a more business friendly environment for one of its chemical plants. For years, the Monsanto plant in Sauget wathe nation’s largest producer of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
    In 1929, Monsanto acquires Rubber Services Laboratories. Monsanto also went public and became the largest producer of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

    1930s: DeKalb AgResearch Corporation (today MONSANTO) marketed its first **HYBRID** seed corn (maize).

    1929 : On the other side of the Atlantic, in Germany, the first chemical / pharmaceutical cartel is founded in order to compete with Rockefeller’s quest for control of the global drug market. Lead by the German multinationals Bayer, BASF and Hoechst, the I.G. Farben cartel was founded with a total number of employees surpassing 80,000. The race for global control was on.

    1929, November 29 – The Rockefeller cartel (U.S.A.) and the I.G. Farben cartel (Germany) decided to divide the entire globe into interest spheres – the very same crime Rockefeller had been sentenced for 18 years earlier, when his trust had divided up the U.S. into “interest zones”.

    1930s: DeKalb AgResearch Corporation (today MONSANTO) marketed its first **HYBRID** seed corn (maize).

    1932 / 33 : The I.G. Farben cartel, equally insatiable, decides no longer to be bound by the 1929 constraints. They support an uprising German politician, who promises I.G. Farben to militarily conquer the world for them. With millions of dollars in election campaign donations, this politician seized power in Germany, turned the German democracy into a dictatorship and kept his promise to launch his conquest war, a war that soon became known as WWII.

    1938: Monsanto goes into the plastic business (the year after DuPont helped ban hemp because it was superior to their new NYLON product made from Rockefeller OIL). Monsanto became involved in plastics when it completely took over Fiberloid, one of the oldest nitrocellulose production companies, which had a 50% stake in Shawinigan Resins.

    1941 Monsanto’s acquisition of a research and development laboratory called Thomas and Hochwalt. The well-known Dayton, Ohio, firm strengthened Monsanto at the time and provided the basis for some of its future achievements in chemical technology.

    1942 – 45 : In each and every country Hitler’s wehrmacht invaded, the first act was to rob the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries and assign them – free of charge – to the I.G. Farben empire. In order to cement its global leadership with patented drugs, the I.G. Farben cartel tests its patented pharmaceutical substances on concentration camp inmates in Auschwitz, Dachau and many other sites. The fees for conducting these inhumane studies were transferred directly from the bank accounts of Bayer, Hoechst and BASF to the bank accounts of the SS, who operated the concentration camps.

    1945 : I.G. Farben’s plan to take control of the global oil and drug markets has failed. The U.S. and the other allied forces won WWII. Nevertheless, many U.S. and allied soldiers had lost their lives during the conflict, and the allies’ reward was little compared to the rewards of others. The corporate shares of the losers, I.G. Farben, went to the Rockefeller trust (U.S.A.) and Rothschild / J.P. Morgan (U.K.).

    1947 : In the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal, 24 managers from Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other executives of the I.G. Farben cartel were tried for crimes against humanity. These crimes included: leading wars of aggression, instituting slavery and committing mass murder. In his final pleading, U.S.-Chief Prosecutor Telford Taylor summarized the crimes committed by these corporate criminals with the following words: “Without I.G. Farben, the second World War would not have been possible”.

    Amazingly, the real culprits for the death of 60 Million people in World War II – the I.G. Farben executives – received the mildest verdicts. Even those executives directly responsible for the crimes in I.G. Auschwitz only received a maximum of twelve years in jail. Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

    Rewind back to 1944 Nelson Rockefeller had already entered the executive branch of the U.S. government. He started off as Under-Secretary of State and ended up a few years later as Special Adviser of President Truman for Special Affairs. In other words, at critical junctures of the 20th century, the Rockefeller interests took direct charge. They decided the post war shape of the world and the distribution of its wealth.
    As such, under the influence of the U.S. State Department, the verdicts in Nuremberg against the I.G. Farben managers can easily be explained. In return for taking over the corporate shares of I.G. Farben, and thereby global control of the oil and drug business, Nelson Rockefeller made sure that the real culprits of World War II were not hanged. In fact, and as we shall see, they were needed.

    From 1939 to 1945 Monsanto did a lot of research on enriching uranium for the Manhattan project. Later, Monsanto operated the Mound (Ohio) Laboratory as a nuclear facility for the Federal government until the late 1980s, and their Dayton Laboratory was used as a research facility for nuclear-based and other government-funded projects

    1. In 1945, Monsanto used its warfare chemicals in agriculture

      1954: Monsanto partnered with German chemical giant Bayer to form Mobay and market polyurethanes in the USA

      1955, Monsanto was in the petroleum business having acquired Lion Oil primarily to provide themselves petrochemical raw materials.

      1957-1967: Monsanto was the creator of several attractions in Disney’s Tommorrowland. Disney finally tore the house down, but discovered it would not go down without a fight. According to Monsanto Magazine, wrecking balls literally bounced off the gla$s-fiber, reinforced polyester material. Torches, jackhammers, chain saws and shovels did not work.

      1959: Monsanto sets up Monsanto Electronics Co. in Palo Alto

      From 1961 to 1971 : Monsanto was involved in production of Agent Orange for military use during the Vietnam War and was involved in production of PCBs, DDT and chemical weapons that was sprayed on the Vietnamese civilians and American troops. The US dropped 21 million gallons of defoliants over large swathes of Vietnam, of which 12 million gallons were Agent Orange – a herbicide, which can release dioxin, manufactured for the US Department of Defense primarily by Monsanto Corporation and Dow Chemical.Agent Orange was a mixture of 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D and had very high concentrations of dioxin.

      1962: Monsanto’s European expansion continued, with Brussels becoming the permanent overseas headquarters.

      In the 1970’s, Justice Clarence Thomas, worked as a corporate lawyer for the Monsanto Corporation, thus creating a serious conflict of interest for him when deciding any case involving Monsanto. for exemple :https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/12pdf/11-796_c07d.pdf)

      1972, The use of DDT was banned by congress so in 1973 Monsanto developed glyphosate molecule for killing weeds and pests.

      1977: G. D. Searle hires prominent Washington insider Donald Rumsfeld as the new CEO

      1981: Ronald Reagan is sworn in as President of the United States. Reagan’s transition team, which includes Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G. D. Searle, hand picks Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes Jr. to be the new FDA Commissioner. On January 21, the day after Ronald Reagan’s inauguration, GD Searle re-applied to the FDA for approval to use aspartame in food sweetener,and Reagan’s new FDA commissioner, Arthur Hayes Hull, Jr., appointed a 5-person Scientific Commission to review the board of inquiry’s decision. It soon became clear that the panel would uphold the ban by a 3-2 decision, but Hull then installed a 6th member on the commission, and the vote became deadlocked. He then personally broke the tie in aspartame’s favor. Hull later left the FDA under allegations of impropriety, served briefly as Provost at New York Medical College, and then took a position with Burston-Marsteller, the chief public relations firm for both Monsanto and GD Searle. Since that time Hull has never spoken publicly about aspartame.

      In 1982, Rumsfeld had succeeded in getting the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to finally approve NutraSweet (aspartame), which had previously been denied FDA approval. (BECAUSE IT BURNS HOLES IN BRAINS)

      In 1985 taking the company deeper into pharmaceuticals and the sweetener industry, Monsanto purchased G.D. SEARLE & CO. Donald Rumsfeld followed Searle as CEO and President of Searle between 1977 and 1985. He played an instrumental role in the acquisition of G.D. Searle & Company by Monsanto.

      In 1987, Monsanto did its first test on genetically modified crops.

      In 1993, Monsanto and NTGargiulo joined forces to produce a (GMO) geneticallyaltered tomato

      In 1994, Monsanto released rBGH and rBST growth hormones into the market

      In 1995, Monsanto invented a new genetically modified crop that was resistant to its best selling herbecide Roundup.

      In 1996 The launch of Monsanto’s first biotech product line.

      1996-1999: Monsanto sold off its plastics business to Bayer.

      1995-1997 : spin-off of Monsanto’s chemical operations into a new, publicly owned company named Solutia Inc ((which took the sholder of Monsanto’s suits being filed against them for Environmental damage..so basically Solutia (The Solution?) is the dirty company who’s repsonsable for pumping PCBs Dioxins into the environnement.. not Monsanto.. Anything to keep the name clean..Disgusting!!))A flurry of acquisitions completed between 1995-1997 greatly increased Monsanto’s presence in life sciences, quickly compensating for the revenue lost from the spin-off of Solutia. Among the largest acquisitions were Calgene, Inc., a leader in plant biotech, which was acquired in a two-part transaction in 1995 and 1997, and a 40% interest in Dekalb Genetics Corp.,the second-largest seed-corn company in the United States.In 1998, Monsanto acquired the rest of DeKalb, paying $2.3 billion for the Illinois-based company.

      1. 1999: Monsanto opens its Beautiful Sciences exhibit at Disneyland… (Its a small small world blah blah blahh blaaah blaaaah)

        2000-2002: Monsanto merges with Pharmacia & Upjohn, and changes its name to Pharmacia Corporation

        2002: Monsanto entered into an important agreement with DuPont.
        As a result of this “agreement” both companies agreed to drop a raft of outstanding patent lawsuits against one another and to share their patented GMO crops technologies. Some commentators see this ‘agreement’ as const1tuting a pseudo-merger by stealth of the two companies’ GMO crops monopolies which are too large to be permitted to merge

        2002: The infamous agrochemical and biotechnology division, still known as Monsanto,was spun off as a nominally separate company with Pharmacia originally retaining an 85% share. Monsanto Company became completely separate and independent from Pharmacia on August 13, 2002, when Pharmacia distributed its remaining Monsanto shares to Pharmacia’s stockholders.

        2003: Solutia, Inc. (now owned by Pharmacia Corp… which 3 years ago.. was Monsanto.. OOH how they twist and turn in the wind to avoid responsability and liabilty.) files Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

        2004: Monsanto forms American Seeds Inc holding company for corn and soybean seed deals and begins brand acquisitions.

        2005: Monsanto has patent claims on breeding techniques for pigs which would grant them ownership of any pigs born of such techniques and their related herds. Greenpeace claims Monsanto is trying to claim ownership on ordinary breeding techniques. Monsanto claims that the patent is a defensive measure to track animals from its system.

        2007, Monsanto acquired Delta & Pine Land Company, a company that had patented a seed technology nicknamed Terminators.

        In 2014 Monsanto donated half a million dollars to the Clinton FamilyFoundation while spending more than $3 million on congressional lobbying.Other donors with interests in corporate agribusiness include Coca-Cola ($5m), AstraZeneca ($150k), Dow Chemical ($1m), Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa ($1m), Walmart / Walton Foundation ($2.25m) and the pro-GMO Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which together with Microsoft donated $26m. ((These companies donated to the Clintons, but I put them here so we can seeclearly who we are dealing with here..))Clinton is a firm supporter of Monsanto and other multinational corporations involved with agriculture, and GMOs, which she praised at the 2014 Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego. In April she appointed long-time Monsanto lobbyist Jerry Crawford as an advisor to her ‘Ready for Hillary’ Political Action Committee

        2015 Acting on President Juan Manuel Santos’ recommendation, Colombia’s National Drug Council on May 14 banned aerial spraying of glyphosate. The ruling has implications for beleaguered rural life in Colombia due to far-reaching effects of the chemical. They are due mainly to the aerial spray method of delivering glyphosate, which is unique to Colombia.

        September 2016, Monsanto entered into a $66-billion deal to merge with Bayer. Bayer said BofA Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, HSBC and JP Morgan had committed to providing the bridge financing.BofA Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse are acting as lead financial advisers to Bayer, with Rothschild as an additional adviser. Bayer’s legal advisers are Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Allen & Overy LLP. Morgan Stanley and Ducera Partners are acting as financial advisers to Monsanto, with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz its legal adviser.
        Monsanto’s business is currently run in two parts: Agricultural Productivity, and Seeds and Genomics (German Eugenics??.. no, sorry, that’s me being stupid..)
        And I havent even begun on Blackwater and Monsanto and Agent Orange being dowsed on Farc rebels to cut out competition for the Contras supplying Cocaine to the CIA…Yes.. they use private armies to chemically bomb humans to safeguard the governement owned cocaine fields..https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/may/15/colombia-herbicide-glyphosate-coca-fields-cancer http://politicalblindspot.com/yes-monsanto-actually-did-buy-the-blackwater-mercenary-group/

        1. And just for context…Just so we can really see who we are dealing with here…
          “2005: Monsanto has patent claims on breeding techniques for pigs which would grant them ownership of any pigs born of such techniques and their related herds. Greenpeace claims Monsanto is trying to claim ownership on ordinary breeding techniques. Monsanto claims that the patent is a defensive measure to track animals from its system.”

          1. Lucent Technologies is the renamed Western Electric which was the manufacturing arm of AT&T before it was spun out a number of years ago. Back in the day it was the main vehicle for bringing the research done by Bell Laboratories to both public and DOD markets.

  5. agree all. rb and gosh got the idea. warren buffett made a killing buying up asbestos liability. mansville loses were ridiculously less than wall street overestimated. who bought unocal after bhopal? what did they lose? i think i read the biggest settlement dead guys’ families got paid was something like $4k. my understanding on valdez is there’s lot’s o innuits still waiting to get paid. it’s a consolidation of power and a financial shakeout. only those who can afford 10 and 20% drops in their financial base regularly can afford to stay in – and then take all the profits when the subsequent inevitable rise will come. orrrrr they can reorganize, declare massive overestimates of loses and massive underestimates of assets (think patents) and take them to other companies.

    1. btw, who here has heard of robert david steele lately? man i hate it when my close friends at yt recommend someone i want to hear and it seems like they were right. the guy is reminding me of a much less compromised micheal ruppert.

      1. ZDB
        A good source of info. As always, one has to couch his frame within context of other sources. He was the #1 Amazon reviewer for sometime; and a former CIA employee.
        His book, The Open-Source Manifesto On Everything was on the money. He also has a Trump Revolution series that looks downright provocative, with titles like Pedophila & Empire[book #13 in the series].

        1. yeh rb. i’m getting that. and he’s been predictive on stuff that well ridiculous to predict. like the state of korea n and s. and he’s doing it while talking about his good friends at sorcha faal and ben fulford? without the predictive surprises he seems like just another peter joseph speaking truths that everyone aches to hear and then moving on like foster gamble to spread pie in the sky solutions that just herd the sheeple into easier to access corners.

          so far the only objection i can site is that he makes a constitutional convention seem not only plausible, but inevitable and a good think. i got a long ways to go on that one as i’m of a very similar mind at cas.

  6. So Big Pharma is on the chopping block joining chain stores like K-Mark-Sears, Radio Shack, Toys r Us the list goes on. Looks like our elites don’t consider us worth having us around to buy their goods or use their services just wondering who will be left to serve them.

  7. SOP[standard operating procedure].
    Those broadcasts of HUGE settlements whittle down dramatically as the virtual non-existent broadcasts of the reduced amounts. They continue, ad nauseum, to litigate/chisel the amount and put off payments. No corporate press on this SOP.
    For an example, look at the Valdez and BP oil spill. Not only have they followed the SOP on the amounts; but, the environmental damage continues[SOP].
    BIG Law is being consumed by Wall Street, in these Huge litigations.
    Where there’s a lot of blood in the water; they’re Wall Street sharks.

    Goshawks looks to be looking precisely into the Rothschild’s modus operandi.
    The fix is in. Now they’re just waiting to pull the trigger.

  8. I think you’re right about Bayer wanting to take over the patents. Then there is the accounting trick of writing off losses, and who knows about the real deal in the actual payment for the shares, that contract alone is probably several hundred pages. Civil lawsuits can take years to settle. They are playing a long range game, but they would not be the first mega corporation to sink (but top management will have long made off in the lifeboats).

  9. This verdict and the one linked below may cause one to wonder just why big Ag and big Pharma are being targeted at this point in time. Goshawks may have a valid line of reasoning. By deception shall we do business is standard operating practices for the tribe and their ultra wealthy enablers.

    1. That is an excellently-presented article. I think the verdict is monumental–we’ll see where it goes. But I’d really be surprised if it changed anything without an entire overhaul of the ’86 NCVIA legislation. The “vaccine court”, which is a product of the legislation is not really a court–no discovery is allowed, there’s no typical court procedure. And the application procedure to have your case approved to be presented at the vaccine “court” is so exclusive, so ridiculously convoluted, experts suggest only 5% of injury claims filed ever get that far. And most don’t even try.

      We’re a long way from seeing changes to CDC schedule.

      Worse, we’re a very long way from addressing the harm that’s already been done to vaccine victims–MOST have no idea their health issues were caused by vaccines. MOST parents are told adverse reactions are “normal”. MOST MDs are not taught what injuries look like and are HIGHLY financially incentivized to ignore them or blame other things, for which, of course, there is an entire pharmaceutical regimen prescribed. And of the specialists who understand how to heal from vaccine harm, many are dead. We gotta long way to go.

  10. Once a Norwegian mason took stranglehold on my person. He later got sentenced two years, for fraud against a European bank. Today, I have returned to Norway to settle final score.

    Transatlantic masonic handshake is basically communism. There is no logic involved, only greed. Masonry controls court system, so it is factional infighting.

    Patristic exegesis shows how to create society from scratch. It excludes corporate personhood – the shareholder roulette – that is to big to fail. Carmina burana.

    TRICK OR TREAT 16

  11. There was a BIG elephant in the room, as far as the ‘preliminaries’ for the Bayer/Monsanto buyout:

    https://biglawbusiness.com/the-big-law-firms-advising-on-monsanto-bayer-deal/
    “BofA, Merrill Lynch, and Credit Suisse are acting as lead financial advisors and structuring banks to Bayer in addition to providing committed financing for the transaction; Rothschild has been retained as an additional financial advisor to Bayer. Bayer’s legal advisors are Sullivan & Cromwell LLP (M&A) and Allen & Overy LLP (Financing).
    Morgan Stanley & Co. and Ducera Partners are acting as financial advisors, and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is acting as legal advisor to Monsanto.”

    Anyone who believes the Rothschild connection was not a ‘sign’ that this deal was authorized at the highest level is invited to bid for a bridge in Brooklyn that I am offering for sale…

    Somehow, I am reminded of the ‘coup’ that an earlier Rothschild conducted around the victory/defeat at Waterloo. In that scenario, Rothschild caused a panic selling and then bought assets at pennies on the dollar (or pence on the pound). Could this be a similar scenario?

    Bayer stock has tanked big-time on the court news. All it would take is a ‘shadow investor’ (perhaps only linked to a certain financial advisor, not to be too obvious) to step-in and buy-up ‘mass quantities’ of Bayer stock at cents on the euro. Then, the court ruling would somehow be invalidated. Bayer stock shoots up, and a second Waterloo ‘coup’ has occurred.

    “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes,” as Mark Twain is often reputed to have said…

    1. I’m having a hard time buying into the “35,000 indictments” noise…the mass hirings of attorneys and specialists got my attention a few months ago but I’m still VERY dubious.

      However, I daydream about it. And when things like this unexpected verdict as well as the vaccine verdict Walking Dead posted about above, I do wonder if there is some glorious shakedown going on at DOJ.
