With all the stories about the corona virus (please, no more!), there's an odd story by F. William Engdahl that was spotted by M.W., and it's definitely worth passing along, together with my high octane speculation of the day. For those who've been regular readers here for a while, you know that Mr. Engdahl is one of my favorite researchers in this alternative research field. One may not always agree with him, but he is always provocative and usually over the target, as he is today. Consider the following story:
In order to set my question into the proper context, consider only the backers of the seed vault project:
The seed bank and acquisition of the seeds is managed by an entity known as the Crop Trust, officially known as the Global Crop Diversity Trust, now based in Bonn, Germany. On its website Crop Trust makes the modest claim that their “sole mission is to ensure humanity conserves and makes available the world’s crop diversity for future food security.”
It has an impressive list of financial sponsors which it calls the Donors’ Council. Among the most eye-catching they name Bayer Crop Science, which now incorporates Monsanto; DuPont Pioneer Hi-Bred; Syngenta AG, now owned by ChemChina. These are the world’s largest purveyors of GMO patented seeds and the paired agrichemicals such as Roundup with glyphosate. China’s now state-owned Syngenta is the world’s largest supplier of crop chemicals.
In addition, Crop Trust Donors include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the major donor to initiate the Trust in 2004 with the FAO, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and CGIAR, acting through Bioversity International.
Gates Foundation is joined at Crop Trust by the Rockefeller Foundation, the ones who first financed the creation of GMO biotechnology beginning in the 1970’s at their International Rice Research Institute, where they spent millions trying to develop the colossal failure called Vitamin A-enhanced Golden Rice. CGIAR, set up in 1972 by the Rockefeller Foundation and Ford Foundation to spread their Green Revolution agribusiness model, controls most of the private seed banks from the Philippines to Syria to Kenya. In all, these present seed banks hold more than six and a half million seed varieties, almost two million of which are ‘distinct.’ Svalbard’s Doomsday Vault has a capacity to house four and a half million different seeds.
Now, besides the usual round-up of billionaire busybodies like Rockefailure and Gates, note that there is a whole bevy of the usual corporations associated with "agri-business" and the GMO seed business, which we like to describe less-than-affectionately as "I.G. Farbensanto," given the merger between a former component of I.G. Farben - Bayer - and Mon(ster)santo (a corporation whose reputation is too well known to rehearse again) has found in its buyout by Bayer a home with another corporation which shares its "philosophy". We'll get back to that "bevy" of corporations behind the seed vault in a little while.
For now, note this aspect of "the philosophy":
Being President of the Rockefeller-founded Population Council is no minor deal. In the 1990’s the UN’s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, allegedly against Tentanus, a sickness arising from such things as stepping on a rusty nail. The vaccine was not given to men or boys, despite the fact they are presumably equally as liable to step on rusty nails as women.
Because of that curious anomaly, Comité Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization, became suspicious and had vaccine samples tested. The tests revealed that the Tetanus vaccine being spread by the WHO– only to women of child-bearing age– contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy. None of the women vaccinated were told.
It later came out that the Rockefeller Foundation along with the Rockefeller’s Population Council, the World Bank (home to CGIAR), and the United States’ National Institutes of Health had been involved in a 20-year-long project begun in 1972 to develop the concealed abortion vaccine with a tetanus carrier for WHO. In addition, the Government of Norway, the host to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault, donated $41 million to develop the special abortive Tetanus vaccine.
Smuggling hidden ingredients into vaccines without telling the women receiving it that it could terminate pregnancies, and perhaps do other types of harm (including psychological)? Why, big corporations, pharmaceutical companies, and charitable foundations would never do such a thing! (And "people" wonder why "people" are skeptical of big pharma and vaccines!)
So what's the game behind the support of this crowd of maladjusted billionaire busybodies and "enlightened" entities like IG Farbensanto for the seed vault? Well,Mr. Engdahl has his own speculation:
Is it just coincidence that the same Gates Foundation is backing the organization responsible for maintaining the Svalbard “Doomsday” Seed Vault at the same time Gates is emerging as a major authority on the danger of the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic? In an article he wrote for the New England Journal of Medicine, Gates stated that the designated COVID19, “has started behaving a lot like the once-in-a-century pathogen we’ve been worried about.”
A virtually inaccessible seed vault under the control of some of the world’s foremost advocates of eugenics and population reduction is definitely remarkable. With more than a million of the irreplaceable seed heritage of the world locked inside the Svalbard Seed Vault, could this be a way for GMO agribusiness giants like Bayer-Monsanto or Syngenta to illegally gain access to those seeds in a time of global crisis? It sounds very far-fetched, yet there are far-fetched goings on in our world. We could say, “He who controls the world’s crop seeds, controls the world.”
I suspect Mr. Engdahl, as usual, is on to something here. But I also suspect there's a bit more to it. Consider the implications of this paragraph from the beginning of his article:
On February 25 more than 60,000 new seed varieties were placed in the Svalbard vault, the largest deposit of seeds since it opened. This brings the total of seed types to over one million since the vault was first opened for deposits in early 2008.
The latest seed deposits include onions from Brazil, guar beans from central Asia, corn seeds sacred to the Cherokee nation and wildflowers from a meadow at Prince Charles’s home in the UK (sic).
The strong implication here is that few - if any - of these newly deposited types of seeds are genetically engineered seeds in the IG Farbensanto sense; they're natural seeds. That raises the question of why these corporations and billionaire busybodies would be preserving them...
... unless of course they know that, in the long run, they're far superior to their own creations...
...and even better, they're free from royalty and usage fees.
See you on the flip side...
