There is a MUST SEE video at the bottom of this article, if you do nothing else, PLEASE watch this video!

So when did We the People grant the Executive branch of this government and all its many departments and influences, or it’s Executive, Dictitorial powers? In modern usage, the term “Dictator” is generally used to describe a leader who holds and/or abuses an extraordinary amount of personal power, especially the power to make laws without effective restraint by a legislative assembly. Dictatorships are often characterised by some of the following traits: suspension of civil liberties; proclamation of a state of emergency; rule by decree; Not abiding by rule of law procedures etc …

More so every day those of us who rant about this governments practices mirroring the actions of a tyrannical police state are being proven right. The unconstitutional, para-military, gestapo style raids occurring in America by the Justice Department, the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service, the TSA and Homeland Security are soaring in frequency, intensity and belligerence.

These raids involve individuals, business owners, private and non-profit organizations and more. This IS NOT about the guilt or innocence .. It is about abuse of power and the unconstitutional para-military tactics being used by these federal agencies. Many times the raids are warrant-less, or if a warrant is presented it is so vague as to afford the raiding party limitless power and authority over the operation/invasion.

ELIANGONZALEZ[1]The Constitution (which our president claims he adheres to steadfastly) guarantees us a writ of Habeas Corpus, or the right not to be detained. We are guaranteed the right to have counsel present when being questioned or as it would better be described interrogated. We are guaranteed our Miranda rights and so much more that is being knowingly and willingly ignored and abused by these agents.

These are the same people who if questioned or challenged over the legality of their actions, will stare you coldly in the face and blatantly state “I’m from the federal government so I can do anything”! The crux of the issue is … in America THEY CAN’T, or never used to be able to.

When we who rant about these issues state that this government has completely discounted the constitution and bill of rights as the legally binding organic law of this land, we used to receive major push back and disbelief, well even a blind man can see Voicethis today. The two pillars of rights in America are our right to property and privacy, but both are under extreme, continuous and soon to be fatal attack!

The states need to wake up and push back. They need to reclaim their sovereignty stated in our founding documents including the power of self determination over the federal government … basically they need to grow a pair of balls and quit kowtowing to the feds or risk loosing any control or authority they may still enjoy, and this starts with us … We The People … LIVE FREE or passively accept your subjugation !!!

If there is any doubt in your mind as to the severity of this issue, please watch this video, and if that is not sufficient, do some research. The proof is abundant and the time is short …

monsanto_scarecrowCorporate totalitarianism … rules through  dispensability and corruption. It treats communities, people, countries,  ecosystems, species as disposable and dispensable.

Monsanto; one of the most hated companies in America has had  a long history of corruption, producing the most toxic chemicals and  pesticides, food monopoly and market control.

Over the last century, Monsanto has been able to get away with many things, since it’s deeply rooted and embedded within the U.S. government. One of the best ways to be  effective and be able to get away with anything even if it’s murder is the ability to penetrate and function inside of a powerful organization or institution. The CIA does it all the time; the old Mafia did it so do many  other powerful corporations in America.

Agent-Orange-GMOs[1]Monsanto’s bullying policies are known to anyone who has  stood up on their way against the use of GMOs, pesticides or rBGH growth  hormones.

One of the countries who stood firmly against the import of  GMOs, synthetic pesticides and cows who are injected with hormones and  antibiotics was France because it has zero tolerance for carcinogens in food.  But as we all know, no act of rebellion against the pesticide empire remains  unpunished. During George Bush’s presidency, the French rejected to import livestock from the US, however the US retaliated by increasing steel import  tariff’s during GATT talks to punish the French government and accused them of  being anti-American.

That sounds familiar doesn’t it? Donald Rumsfeld (CEO of  pharmaceutical company Searle that was later sold to Monsanto) called European countries (France and Germany) that did not support the invasion of Iraq in  2003, the “old Europe”.

George Bush’s famous quote,” that either you are with us or  you are with the enemy” is still remembered by many. Even Iran who helped  America to win the war on terror in Afghanistan was soon called the “axis of  evil” by the same administration. Even one million Iraqi civilians mostly women  and children were regarded as collateral damage of the war on terror.

As George Orwell said “until people become conscious, they  never rebel and until after they have rebelled, they cannot become conscious”.  The criminal elite know that if they take away the meaning of words, it will  incapacitate our thoughts. So labels are  everything; the content, the code, the underlying intentions and the desire to  manipulate and control the masses so they can pass anything to American public  with no time to review or reject it.

Knowing the history of Monsanto, oil companies and big  banks, it’s quite laughable how Monsanto is now joining big banks and oil  companies for pushing the UN so called Agenda 21 for global sustainability and  development. Last week a report by organicconsumers.org showed how Monsanto has  been deeply embedded with all our government branches since 1990s.

Here is a summary:

The history of Monsanto and FDA starts at 1991 when Margaret Miller one of the ex-top scientists at Monsanto was appointed as Deputy Director of FDA by George Bush Sr. Margaret Miller, as one of the top scientists in Monsanto was working on developing rBGH growth hormones that have been linked to breast cancer on women and prostate cancer in men. Later on when she was working in FDA, she approved the same growth hormones that she was previously studying at Monsanto.

In the same year of 1991, Clarence Thomas, an extremist and  a right wing nutcase (who was Monsanto’s former attorney and a big promoter of  agribusinesses and mass chemical poisoning) was appointed to the Supreme Court  despite the rage of the whole nation.

On the other hand Al Gore that warned all of us of the rapid  climate change and greedy polluting corporations like Monsanto won the 2000 election  by the majority vote. However, over 46,000 black votes were discounted in the  state of Florida where George Bush’s bother was the governor. It was the  decision of the US Supreme Court that effectively resolved the 2000  presidential election fraud in favor of George W. Bush. Clarence Thomas was the  one who cast the deceptive vote that put George W. Bush into the office.

In 1992, Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s former attorney was  appointed as Deputy Commissioner of FDA; a role that gave him the authority to  expedite the approval of genetically modified organisms in our food  supply.  Later on Mike Taylor became the  VP of Monsanto.

In 1993; Rufus Yerxa Monsanto’s Chief Counsel  and one of the most powerful figures in the world international trade policies  was nominated as U.S. deputy to the World Trade Organization.

In 1996, Michael Kantor who was on  Monsanto’s Board of Directors became the US Secretary of Commerce.   In 2000, Carol Tucker Foreman who was a lobbyist  for Monsanto was appointed as the “Consumer Advocate” on the international  committee assessing genetically modified foods.

In 2001, Anne Veneman who was on Board  of Directors of one of Monsanto’s biotech subsidiary called Calgene was  appointed as head of USDA in charge of regulating genetically modified  organisms.

In January 2001, Donald Rumsfeld the  CEO of Searle pharmaceutical corporation acquired by Monsanto was sworn in as  Secretary of Defense. Although  Bush was a lame-duck president for 8 month soon after 9/11 he rediscovered his  mission that was appointed to him by Gods to fight a good war on terror.  Secretary Rumsfeld was in charge of the Defense Department during the 9/11  attack and the war on terror.

In 2001 Linda Fisher who was previously  Monsanto’s VP of Government Affairs was appointed as Deputy Administrator of Environmental  Protection Agency.

In 2002, George Poste the former Monsanto’s animal specialist was appointed as head of bioterrorism division of  Homeland Security.

In 2008, Obama despite his promises to  make changes and label GMO foods appointed Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s  former attorney and VP as Deputy Commissioner of FDA. He also gave his blessing  to continue the use of aborted babies as flavor enhancer in sodas and soft drinks which  means business as usual.

Not that Obama hasn’t made any efforts to lead America  towards healthier food production with temporary  halt to GMO foods, he has continued the policies of George W  Bush. Besides appointing Mike Taylor, soon after he took office he appointed  Roger Beachy, the former director at Monsanto as head of USDA, Tom Vilsack and creator of  Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership as the commissioner of USDA. He promised  to label GM foods but instead the USDA under the Obama administration approved GMO alfalfa and sugar beets that can increase the chances of cross  contamination and many other environmental problems.

abstract-artwork-depicting-holiday-vaccinations-paul-brown[2]By: Christina England

It is interesting, just who is linked to whom, when it comes to vaccinations. Very often, what we as individuals perceive as one thing is something else entirely. This is because we are not in possession of the full facts, which make the larger picture. However, when we delve deeper, what we uncover can often be far more sinister than even we expected.

As we are aware, the governments and pharmaceutical companies are always searching for new ways to push vaccinations onto unsuspecting parents. The earlier they can target a child’s parents, the better they like it. One of the vaccination initiatives being used by twenty-seven states across the US is to send every new parent a “congratulations on the birth of your baby” card.

According to reports, governors from twenty-seven states across the US have teamed up with Hallmark Greeting Cards to send every new parent a card following the birth of their baby. The card includes a personal message from the governor of their state, a detachable growth chart and an up-to-date immunization schedule. This vaccination initiative attempts to make parents fully aware which vaccinations their newborn baby should receive.

The Healthy Home Economist, reporting on the story, stated, “Having the cards actually come from state governors themselves is the new twist which gives the program’s ‘friendly’ pressure to vaccinate a more personal and authoritative touch.” [1]

With Love, From Your State Government

Although Mike Adams from Natural News had covered this story back in 2011, as well as many other sites, I have decided to revisit this issue in greater detail. I have uncovered some interesting facts that must be exposed.

Obviously, the state governors do not send these touching sentiments to parents out of the goodness of their hearts, so, what is the real reason behind these cards? It appears that their real agenda is to meet their vaccination targets. The Capital Times explains:

“When it began, the immunization rates for children up to age 2 in Missouri and Kansas were roughly 45 percent and 52 percent, respectively. Immunization rates for the youngest citizens in those states now hover around 76 percent, according to the program’s website.” [2]

Beth Kaplan, a spokesperson with the state of Wisconsin’s Division of Public Health, whose state vaccination compliance rates have reached as high as 84 percent since the implementation of this program, believes that this initiative is just one way to create awareness about the importance of vaccinations for children. She says, “the program is one of many things we do to encourage the vaccination of children.”

Your Tax Dollars At Work … For Big Pharma

I am sure that one question on many people’s lips is, “Who exactly is paying for these cards?”

Sadly, you are.

According to reports, the taxpayers are footing the bill for the implementation of Hallmark’s For America’s Babies project and it does not come cheap. Although Hallmark Greeting Cards is supplying the cards and paying for the printing costs, an initiative which they proudly boast on their website, the state of Florida alone has budgeted $10,000 for the distribution of these cards, which has been hailed as an excellent program. [3]

The cards are very attractive, in pastel colors, with added bunnies and flowers for effect. I am sure that most new parents would be very moved by this gesture. The Mid America Immunization Coalition has been so impressed by Hallmark’s wonderful work that in 2010 they awarded Hallmark the Sending the Very Best Message Award.  In presenting the award, coalition director Deb Bumgardner said, “Hallmark is definitely one of the behind-the-scenes, unsung heroes in the fight to raise immunization rates in the United States.” [4]

Heroes is Not A Term I Would Use

Behind-the-scenes are definitely the real key words, and that’s where we are going to take a look in order to tell you the whole story of these “unsung heroes.”

In 2006, Hallmark Cards joined forces with UNICEF to form a partnership. Today Hallmark Cards is the exclusive creator, manufacturer and distributor for all UNICEF greeting cards and gifts sold in the United States, giving UNICEF more than $10 million in royalty payments from the sale of their cards and gifts. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF receives 15 percent of every net wholesale shipment of UNICEF Hallmark products.

According to Hallmark Cards, UNICEF works in more than 150 countries to keep children alive and safe. The organization focuses on providing children with clean water, food, medicine, vaccines, and education. [5]

Remember, UNICEF is also responsible for testing vaccines on children in the developing world. This year I found them linked to forty children paralyzed in a small village in Africa after they received the test vaccine MenAfrivac. [6] UNICEF also was involved in the testing of the pentavalent vaccine Quinvaxem, which caused the deaths of 26 children across the developing world. [7]

In 2012, Hallmark, in partnership with UNICEF, won the Fastest Growing Family Business Award, sponsored by Barclays, at the Family Business Awards. [8]

According to the Family Business Awards website, Hallmark made a record year turnover amounting to a massive £4.4million, an increase of 83% since 2009. Hallmark also commissioned Nottingham’s Together Agency to design the UNICEF UK New Range catalog, which echoes Leo Burnett’s UNICEF international theme and promoted the charity’s new line of products in 2012. [9]

Look Who Else is Holding Hands with Hallmark

As well as their links to UNICEF, Hallmark Cards has interesting links to other organizations which need to be exposed. The chairman of Hallmark Cards is Donald J. Hall, and the current president and CEO of Hallmark Cards is David E. Hall. Both men are trustees to a company called MRIGlobal. [10, page 14]

MRIGlobal “offers world-class expertise and experience in bioanalytical model development, testing, and validation—a complete array of services for the development and licensing of new vaccines.” They also supply “government and industrial clients with high-purity, reference grade chemicals.”

Their website states:

“MRIGlobal’s work in the development and testing of human and veterinary vaccine candidates encompasses safety, toxicity, potency, efficacy, and vaccine formulation stability.” [11]

This indicates that this company is in the business of testing vaccines on both humans and animals.

Interestingly, MRIGlobal also has been linked to PATH and the FDA.

One of MRIGlobal’s recent projects was in partnership with PATH. [12] The project involved providing support to biotechnology companies that are developing influenza vaccines that can be “accessible and affordable for low-resource countries.” Despite MRIGlobal’s noteworthy claim that their work “encompasses safety, toxicity, potency, efficacy, and vaccine formulation stability,” children who have received vaccines from their partner organizations, like PATH and UNICEF, are still suffering many adverse reactions from these vaccinations.

PATH, an organization which claims “to help communities worldwide break longstanding cycles of poor health,” was involved recently with the testing of tens of thousands of tribal girls in India, leaving them without appropriate follow-up care, as well as the vaccination trials in Chad, Africa, in which many children were paralyzed following vaccination. [13]

Selling Out to Survive

MRIGlobal is also involved in licensing medication and vaccinations for the FDA and the CDC, claiming to maintain “all necessary licenses and certifications to conduct safe, defensible studies on a host of diverse materials, from pharmaceuticals to chemical agents.” MRIGlobal operates laboratories for the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Defense. The company has been granted numerous licenses by the US government as well as internationally. [14]

This leaves me asking two questions:

Why would Hallmark Cards form a partnership with UNICEF, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and many state governments? [15]

Why would the chairman and the CEO and president of a greeting card company also be trustees of a company which tests and licenses vaccines?

The only answer I can come up with is money, and lots of it.

The leaders of Hallmark, one of the largest privately owned companies in the US, may have found a unique way to survive in a troubling economic times, using their skills and knowledge to tap into the lucrative vaccine business, as their greeting card endeavors have suffered stagnant sales and declining profits for years. [16]

Conclusion

What appeared at first glance to be an act of charity on behalf of Hallmark Cards now appears to be something far more sinister. Hallmark Cards is doing more than making a tax-deductible donation to the government. In addition to recommending that parents keep up to date with their children’s vaccine schedules (because the corporate leaders will profit from increased vaccination rates), they are also heavily linked to the testing of vaccines on innocent animals and humans.

Once highly regarded as an organization of love and caring, Hallmark Cards now has tarnished its trademark crown with what can only be described as deep connections to several of the largest pharmaceutical organizations known to man. So, are Hallmark’s intentions as charitable as they would like us to believe? It is clear that Hallmark Cards is affiliated with MRIGlobal, the US government and Canadian government, UNICEF, PATH, FDA and the CDC. The common denominator linking all of these groups together is vaccination.

Far from being the kindly souls they first appear to be and making sure that children stay strong and healthy, I believe that the leaders of Hallmark Greeting Cards are laughing all the way to the bank. Are you going to let them trick you into vaccinating your child, without doing any research, just because they sent you a card?

BHO Ohio ST 01By Roger Landry, The Liberty Beacon

On May 5, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio, Barack Obama gave the commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us, it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process.”

As our president tries to convince our arriving generation of citizens that it is in fact those who love and care for this country the most, who are it’s worst and not it’s best, his words could not be more telling of the true character of the tyranny he represents. The lies and deceit in this address are blatant and many, so lets put forth some corrections and truth!

First off the Government IS “separate and sinister” on so many levels that to describe them all here is not possible or practical, but here are a few:

1. Why didn’t he state that the US is no longer a nation ruled by the original and organic Constitution or We The People, but is in fact a corporation controlled by the same elitist who own the Federal Reserve?

14th AmmendmentThis is not a conspiracy theory or conjecture, it is a fact that all sitting presidents since the 14th amendment was instituted in 1868 and codified in the DC Organic Act of February 21st 1871, are fully aware of, as is Congress and the Supreme Court. Anyone who thinks this is not real needs to read the Congressional Record … This Act set up the DC Corporate government, in a capacity of control, separate from the Republic of the United States of America, and We The People are all merely assets of this corporate entity and NOT citizens of the original USA … research this for the shock of your life!

So if this government is not a “separate, sinister entity” why is this FACT hidden from We The People and not even mentioned in our history books or taught to these very graduating students? Why is this charade perpetuated continuously?

2. If this government wishes only to serve We The people, why are we fighting so many unpopular and unjust wars, killing millions who in no way  endanger our freedoms or way of life? Why are so many tyranical bills and executive orders passed or mandated against the will of the majority?NDAA-300x168[1]

To name a few (and there are are a plethora), the Patriot act (the legal ability to spy on Americans), the NDAA rider (allowing indefinite detention without due process), Monsanto and GMO producers immunity from prosecution (regardless of their transgressions), a resounding defeat of the Sanders amendment (intended to definitively establish that states have the right to require labeling of GMO ingredients), corporate bailouts in the trillions of dollars (we where lied blatantly to about the actual amount), failure to audit the Federal Reserve, The ability of the president to assassinate American citizens without due process, gun control legislation, and so much more.

None of the above stated tyranny is supported by a majority of the populace and in most cases is opposed by a super-majority, yet these laws and EO’s (and many more) have been forced upon us by our duly elected representatives, with little or no regard to our wishes or protests.

This lays waste to this blatantly misleading comment “They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in “self-rule” (does not exist any more) is somehow just a sham (it is) with which we can’t be trusted” (you obviously can’t)!

3. “We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to”

This has got to be a joke! It does not take much research to realize that more Americans are dependent on government entitlement programs today then at any point in recent history. The increase in the welfare and the food stamp programs alone has skyrocketed at an exponential rate in the latter part of the past decade spurred on by this very government. The reasoning … A people dependent on government is far less likely to oppose that government regardless of the circumstances … FACT!

In one instance this administration even went as far as to post inviting and attractivealg_ny_food_stamp[1] posters, with mouth watering meals of steak and seafood displayed on them, across the inner city subways, bus stations and other locations of major population centers to attract people to the food stamp program. Participation in this program now bumps up on 50 million Americans. What you are not told in the massive level of fraud involved in the program, and that very little to nothing is being done to curb it because they know these people will always be there to support this government in order to assure their entitlement/benefit.

Obamacare is one of the most unpopular programs ever presented to the American public and was only instituted through a massive campaign of lies, deceit and fraud, most of which is readily apparent as implementation proceeds. Yet it will eventually 486136_4823913028178_893640954_nlock a vast majority of us into a dependency on our government for even the most basic healthcare needs and intrude into our personal lives on a unheard of scale, including mandatory RFID chips. This has the ultimate result of destroying what used to be the most advanced and effective medical system on this planet, and the envy of the world.

This program is by far the most destructive influencing factor today on the evaporating middle class as many employers stop hiring full time employees and shift full time positions to part time, or move their companies off shore to avoid the massive cost they will realize with the full implementation of this highly invasive program. This is a major player in the free fall of the average household income, forcing many more Americans to dependency on government entitlement programs such as food stamps. YUP a self perpetuating cycle. Do you really think by the way this administration fights viciously to push this program forward even in the face of it’s huge unpopularity, that this is a mistake, or unintended?

4. “But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours”

Liberty UnmadeWhy the hell does he (a supposed Constitutional scholar) constantly state we are a Democracy? This country was founded and then bequeathed to us as a Constitutional Republic that chooses its leaders in a democratic process, NOT as a Democracy! This man avoids using the word Republic as if it was cursed. My biggest concerns are that we have transitioned to a purely socialistic Democracy ruled by a soft dictatorship, and the rights of the individual mean nothing if they do not serve the majority (propagandized MSM addicts), or in fact the corporatist elite who own and rule this nation.

Now I have literally torn this charade of a commencement speech apart as a litany of falsehoods, lies and deceit, and I am sure some of you will push back against at least some of this … do some research please! I could go on and write a book with ease, but I feel I have made my intended point.

We are all aware that politicians by nature say just what they feel we want to hear but never what we need to hear, but this goes well beyond that to blatant lies and misrepresentations. If you just take everything stated and reverse it you will come very close to the truth.

We The People need to wake up to the reality of America as it exists today, not as it was founded or bequeathed to us, and realize it is only through unity in voice that we will ever get this Republic back on track and once again enjoy the freedoms and prosperity that are the defining promises of the American dream! If we don’t, and soon, our children will never know the true meaning of freedom and it will be in many ways our responsibility for failing in our role as the true governing force in this once great nation. LIVE FREE !!!

right-2-know_1[1]“Let food by thy medicine and let medicine be thy food,” said Socrates. Our soils are more depleted of nutrients than they were 2500 years ago, and today much of what comprises people’s diet in the U.S. is more poison than medicine, for processed foods are most often high in calories and low in nutrients, or altogether absent of calories and nutrients but full of toxins, as is the case in diet soft drinks. On top of that, it’s difficult to purchase any processed food today in the U.S. that doesn’t contain genetically modified, or engineered, ingredients. Despite the proved health risks from consuming genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the FDA has approved GMO foods and drugs without testing, taking the word of the agrochemical and seed giant Monsanto that they’re safe, despite substantial evidence that GMOs are anything but safe for human or animal consumption.

"Monsanto: The World's Poster Child for Corporate Manipulation and Deceit," by Jeffrey Smith, explains how the revolving door between the Monsanto and the U.S. government ushered in an era of GMO-contaminated foods.

“Monsanto: The World’s Poster Child for Corporate Manipulation and Deceit,” by Jeffrey Smith, explains how the revolving door between the Monsanto and the U.S. government ushered in an era of GMO-contaminated foods. Click on the image to access the pdf of the article published by Huffington Post in 2010.

How did this happen? Monsantoism and Corporatism in the U.S.

As author and journalist Chris Hedges tells us in “Democracy in America Is a Useful Fiction,” a corporate coup d’état has occurred. Corporations are now fully in control of the U.S. government. Jeffrey Smith, founding director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, leading authority on GMOs, and author, has published two books on how an aggressive, deceptive war has been waged by Monsanto and other agrochemical and biotech corporations against farmers and against the people of the world, invading food supplies, and our bodies, with GMOs. Smith’s summary published in Huffington Post explains how Monsanto got FDA approval for genetically engineered foods (see “Monsanto: The World’s Poster Child for Corporate Manipulation and Deceit” as a printable pdf or at Huffington).

Like the EPA’s process of “pre-approval” of oil dispersants based on data from the manufacturer’s own tests, the FDA accepted Monsanto’s test data to designate GMOs as generally accepted as safe (GRAS), and therefore not requiring further testing by the agency. This policy is based on political, not scientific, considerations and was accomplished by allowing Monsanto to tailor rule-making and policies favorable to its corporate interests and more generally to the agri-biotech industry. As if this were the plot of a modern-day Dickens novel in which characters are tagged according to their vice or virtue, the name of the man to plow the FDA field for the sowing Monsanto-friendly policy is Michael Taylor, who re-entered the FDA through a revolving door between Monsanto and the federal government, this time to fill a position created especially for him to continue to serve his true client.

As FDA Deputy Commissioner for Policy, Taylor was responsible for the FDA’s GMO policy, writing the rules to approve the infamous genetically engineered Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, or rBGH, which has been linked to cancer, especially of the breast and prostate. Several Monsanto scientists who conducted rBGH tests on rats were so alarmed at their findings that they refused to drink anything but organic, hormone-free milk, and one even bought his own milk cow. After returning to Monsanto as Vice President of Public Policy, he returned again to the FDA in 2010 as Deputy Commissioner for Food Safety.1

Despite the groundswell of activism against Monsanto and GMOs, with demands for mandatory labeling on food products indicating genetically engineered ingredients, on Thursday, May 23, two days before the global March Against Monsanto, the U.S. Senate rejected an amendment to the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2013:

To permit States to require that any food, beverage, or other edible product offered for sale have a label on indicating that the food, beverage, or other edible product contains a genetically engineered ingredient (S.AMDT.965).

monsanto-capitol-hill

Two days after President Obama signed the “Monsanto Protection Act” (HR933), the Senate rejected an amendment to a farm bill that would have provided protection to states which choose to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods.

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ amendment, co-sponsored by Senators Mark Begich (Alaska), Richard Blumenthal (Connecticut), Michael Bennet (Colorado), and Jeff Merkley (Oregon), was overwhelmingly defeated. Seventy-one U.S. senators believe we the people shouldn’t have the right to know what’s in the products we and our children consume. Seventy-one U.S. senators think states shouldn’t be allowed to mandate such labeling. Seventy-one U.S. senators say we don’t have a right to know what’s in the food we eat and the beverages we drink, because they believe we should be forced to eat and drink GMOs whether we want to or not. Seventy-one U.S. senators say we don’t have a right to protect our health by avoiding ingredients that are known to endanger our health. Seventy-one U.S. senators have told us that it’s more important to them to listen to Monsanto lobbyists and to represent Monsanto than to listen to and represent their electorate. Only twenty-seven voted for the amendment. You can go here to find out how your senators voted.

Two days before the Senate struck down the GMO labeling amendment, President Obama signed an appropriations bill dubbed the “Monsanto Protection Act” for a rider anonymously inserted (admittedly by Sen. Roy Blunt and Monsanto) that allows the secretary of the Department of Agriculture to override court orders regarding biotech companies.2 With the government protecting Monsanto’s profit margins instead of food safety and public health, we have no choice but to do our best, using resources provided by nonprofit organizations, to avoid GMOs. For the time being, we must continue to avoid GMOs by informing ourselves and each other.

Why should we avoid GMOs?

Genetically modified organisms are created by inserting a gene of one species into the DNA of another. As mentioned above the genetically engineered rBGH has had deleterious effects on animals and on humans. Genetically modified seed crops are of two types: Roundup Ready crops are engineered to be resistant to the Monsanto herbicide Roundup, whose active ingredient is glyphosate; in the other a gene of the soil bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, is inserted into corn, where it acts as a pesticide.

Monsanto and other biotech corporations would have us believe that everything about GMOs is safe and that GMO crops will help feed the world. Government agencies and politicians base their decisions on those premises, which are false. To put it more bluntly, they’re lies. The truth of the matter is that GMO crops produce lower yields, require an ever increasing amount of extremely toxic pesticides and herbicides as pests and weeds become resistant, and the use of these herbicides and pesticides degrade the nutrients in the soil. Animal studies reveal that GMO foods and their residues of pesticide and herbicide cause disruptions of a number of biological systems, damage cells, and even alter DNA. Even though the FDA has required no further testing and no human studies, what is known about the effects of GMOs from medical evidence reported by veterinarian and medical doctors, in addition to scientific animal studies, has been alarming. So much so that to anyone who becomes aware of these concerns it’s clear that GMOs and the herbicides and pesticides formulated to grow them should never have been approved by the USDA, EPA, and FDA to be produced in the U.S. and consumed by humans or animals.

In 2009 the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) issued a position paper on genetically modified foods, stating, “There is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects. There is causation….” It goes on to say,

[B]ecause GM foods pose a serious health risk in the areas of toxicology, allergy and immune function, reproductive health, and metabolic, physiologic and genetic health and are without benefit, the AAEM believes that it is imperative to adopt the precautionary principle…. Based on the precautionary principle, the AAEM asked:

  • Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks.
  • Physicians to consider the possible role of GM foods in the disease processes of the patients they treat and to document any changes in patient health when changing from GM food to non-GM food.
  • Our members, the medical community, and the independent scientific community to gather case studies potentially related to GM food consumption and health effects, begin epidemiological research to investigate the role of GM foods on human health, and conduct safe methods of determining the effect of GM foods on human health.
  • For a moratorium on GM food, implementation of immediate long term independent safety testing, and labeling of GM foods, which is necessary for the health and safety of consumers.3

Following are a few of what are said to be unintended consequences of GM crops and food:4

  • Internal FDA memos indicate that the consensus among agency scientists was that GM crops could have a variety of unpredictable results, including toxins, allergies, nutritional effects, and new diseases.
  • Statistical analyses of raw data from Monsanto’s own studies on rats indicate that three varieties of GM corn caused toxicity in the liver and kidneys, as well as significant changes in other organs.
  • Most of baby rats died after being fed GM soy, compared to 10% that were fed non-GM soy.
  • Embryos of GM-fed mice had changed DNA.
  • The liver and pancreas of mice were affected  Roundup-Ready soy
  • In India, most of buffalo fed GM cottonseed had reproduction problems, and most of the calves died.
  • U.S. farmers reported that their pigs became sterile after being fed some varieties of GM corn, as did cows and bulls.
  • Changes in the immune system in rodent studies.
  • New proteins with allergenic properties are contained in GM corn and soy.
  • Within two weeks of being fed a GM tomato, 7 of 40 rats died.
  • Twice the number of chickens fed a GM variety of corn (LibertyLink) died.

What about effects on human health? Since GMOs were introduced into the food supply in the 1990s, there has been a rise in infant mortality, reproductive disorders, gastrointestinal problems, and other conditions that could be caused by GMO foods and by herbicide and pesticide residues. There has only been one study of effects of genetically modified foods on humans. In a Canada study the matabolite of the herbicide gluphosinate and a Bt toxin were found in the of blood samples of pregnant women and their fetuses and of non-pregnant women.5

Since it’s been found that genes inserted into GM soy transfer into gut bacteria of humans continue to function there, the question has been raised if this could also be true of the Bt gene. If so,  pesticides could continue production in our intestines after ingesting Bt GM corn. It’s been found that some of the so-called “inert” ingredients of Roundup actually have more deleterious effects on mammals than the active ingredient, glyphosate, for they amplify toxic effects on human cells, and in much more diluted states than recommended. A French team of researchers were astonished to find that the supposedly inert ingredient polyethoxylated tallowamine, or POEA, was “more deadly to human embryonic, placental, and umbilical cord cells” than glyphosate. It has also been found that glyphosate suppresses gut enzymes that detoxify xenobiotics, compounding the effects of other toxins ingested and causing inflammation throughout the body that can lead to numerous diseases typical of populations on a Western diet. A report on the results of yet another study says that a new GM wheat could change the way glucose and carbohydrates are stored in the human body, which could lead to death in children and serious illness in adults.6

mammary-gland-tumors-rats_vert

Tumors in mammary glands of female rats fed GMO corn (J), GMO corn with Roundup (K), and Roundup (L).

Last year the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology published a report on the long-term toxicity of Roundup herbicide and Roundup-Ready GM corn (see pdf), the “first detailed documentation of long-term deleterious effects arising from the consumption of a GM R[oundup]-tolerant maize and of R[oundup], the most used herbicide worldwide.” In this two-year study of health effects of GM corn and Roundup in rats, most affected were mammary and pituitary glands of females, and the liver and kidneys in males, results explained by the study’s authors “by the nonlinear endocrine-disrupting effects of Roundup and the over expression of the transgene in the GMO and its metabolic consequences.” Females developed large mammary tumors (see photographs at right). Some of the males had to be euthanized after kidney tumors grew to above 25 percent of their overall weight.

Altogether, the significant biochemical disturbances and physiological failures documented in this work confirm the pathological effects of these GMO and R[oundup] treatments in both sexes, with different amplitudes.

The EPA has stated that the consumption of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, above maximum contaminant levels (MCL) can cause liver and kidney failure, and reproductive effects. However, this study demonstrates that concentrations far lower than those the EPA considers safe cause severe mammary, liver, and kidney disturbances, which can be compounded by the transgene in at least one GM corn (NK603), which can also be expressed in other pathologies. The authors of this study say that long-term studies are necessary to determine potential toxic effects of GM human food and animal feed and the pesticides formulated to be used on them. 7

The EPA and the FDA should have conducted long-term studies of the effects of Roundup and GMOs before Monsanto was allowed to unleash them onto the world. However, like we’ve seen with Corexit, those agencies adjust regulatory policy to fit the demands of corporations. They can’t be expected to protect the public, despite public tax dollars appropriated to those agencies to do so. The very least we must do to protect ourselves and our loved ones is to avoid GMO products as much as possible.

Avoiding GMOs

Those who have learned and are practicing the basics of detoxification, which include limiting incoming toxins, already know that “clean nutrition,” meaning in part the avoidance of all processed foods, is a necessity. Because risks involved in consuming GMOs include ingestion of pesticides and it can be very difficult at this time to avoid GMOs completely, everyone should detoxify and then adopt a detoxification maintenance regimen, the basics of which can be learned by reading Detoxify or Die, by Sherry A. Rogers, M.D. If we start by eliminating from our diet all processed foods, the process of choosing what is non-GMO and is healthful will be easier.

The main foods and ingredients to avoid in order to limit the consumption of GMOs are corn, soy, canola oil, cottonseed oil, sugar made from sugar beets, commercial dairy products in which cows were given the growth hormone rGBH, papayas, zucchini and yellow squash, and canola oil. Aspartame, which should be avoided anyway because of its toxicity, is also made from genetically modified bacteria. GMO avoidance is made easier by several free phone apps and lists made available by several nonprofit organizations. The Non-GMO Project offers a free phone app.

Non-GMO Project free iTune app: Designed to support consumers in knowing what’s in our food and avoiding GMOs, this app features a list of the brands and products that are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program. The Non-GMO Project’s program is the ONLY third-party non-GMO verification program in North America, and “Non-GMO Project Verified” is the only non-GMO claim backed by transparent and rigorous standards. The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization originally founded by retailers committed to providing consumers with reliable non-GMO choices.

You can also use the Non-GMO Project‘s data base to verify if a product you’re interested in purchasing is non-GMO certified, and view a list of retailers in your area that are participating in the Project. Please explore this site to learn more about how you can ensure the products you purchase are GMO-free, support non-GMO products and retailers, and to make requests for products to become verified and listed.

The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) provides two pdf brochures: Non-GMO Shopping Tips and Non-GMO Shopping Guide. Please also explore IRT’s website, which is the most comprehensive source for GMO information, and which also offers ways to get involved with others to curb GMO inroads into our food supply. We have to think for ourselves. Just because a label says “natural” or “organic” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s non-GMO. Several big food corporations have been sued for labeling their products “all natural,” when in fact they have ingredients that are GMO.8

Join the Tipping-Point Network

As consumers we have the power to reject GMOs by refusing to purchase products that contain them, even if our elected representatives refuse to pass labeling laws. It’s this power that corporations which sell harmful products fear. As more and more countries refuse to important GM agricultural and food products, the more U.S. federal government increases subsidies to U.S. farmers who are growing GM feed and foods, and the more U.S. consumers are expected and forced, if possible, to eat them. It’s not so much by protesting against the power of giant corporations like Monsanto and the politicians who collude with them that will free us from their tyranny, but by refusing to consume the products that are unsafe and that threaten to make our loved ones ill, and are already making many sicker than they have yet to realize. At this point marches and protests are of most value at when they include educational outreaches to the public.

Let’s all make the effort to learn about GMOs, to educate others, and to, at the very least, exercise our purchasing power to reject them, and to grow as much of our own food as possible. With 9 out of 10 people in the U.S. opposed to GMOs in our food supply, we can curb corporate and government GMO tyranny by exercising our consumer power, which is now worth much more than a vote for a politician. The Institute for Responsible Technology hosts a networking service so people can get in touch with other organizers in their community. Resources provided include draft letters to grocery store managers and restaurants, brochures, fact sheets, and organizing tools. Achieving the consumer tipping point can be accomplished through 1) public education, 2) winning the cooperation of grocery stores, restauranteurs, and manufacturers in your community (see IRT’s Tipping Point action sign-up page).

Direct Action

When our elected officials represent corporations instead of the electorate, when agencies such as the EPA and the FDA lie to the public about safety of products we’re led to believe are tested and regulated, when a transnational corporation is so ruthlessly powerful that it poisons the people, and the entire planet, with impunity, it is our obligation to stop it using nonviolent tactics. Good planning is essential for successful direct actions. If they involve civil disobedience that could result in an arrest, it’s a good idea to speak with a supportive attorney ahead of time and to be prepared. One direct action being practiced is applying GMO labels on foods on Grocery shelves. However, caution should be exercised so that you won’t be charged with property damage and ultimately forced to pay for GMO products! There are also many other ways people can creatively engage their community without alienating it. Please document your direct actions and educational outreaches you’ve conducted with descriptions, photographs, and videos, and send them to us so we can share them with others (send to info@gcbarefootdocs.org)!

Health Freedom

Fundamental to health freedom is having access to clean water and healthful foods, the freedom to choose the nutrients we ingest, the freedom to prevent harmful toxins from trespassing in our bodies, and the freedom to rid our bodies of those toxins. The EPA and the FDA continue to violate these rights by failing to test and regulate GMO crops, foods, and drugs and the chemicals used to produce them, and by lying to the public about their safety. White House administrations continue to violate these rights with political appointees favorable to biotech corporations such as Monsanto. Congress has violated these rights by failing to provide proper oversight of the EPA and the FDA, for confirming appointees who are entering government through the revolving door between the White House and Monsanto. The only way to curb the tyranny of Monsanto and other biotech giants and the GMOs they’ve unleashed onto the world is with our own bodies: refusing to allow GMOs to invade our bodies is the very least and perhaps the most we can do.

The US Federal Reserve II A[1]By: Ken LaRive, The Liberty Beacon Contributor

The information age has arrived, and with it comes lies and deceit bent on maintaining the status quo.  Suddenly we are getting a glimpse of the actual workings of the world, and it is unsettling.  We see that for generations a select group of individuals have gained such power that we wonder if in fact we have any freedom or liberty at all. Some dare to suggest that both the right and the left are somehow controlled by this same collective entity, and all of what we see and hear is but an ocular illusion.

The Federal Reserve

A former president of the Bank of England, Sir Josiah Stamp said this: “The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin… Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again… Take this great power away from them, or if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.”

                                    Ron Paul on Debt

Hold on, there would be a price to pay…

Our founders and colonists alike knew first-hand how bankers tended to print too much paper. The first United States Bank was chartered by congress in 1790, and at that time there was only three state banks. Banks were then prohibited by law in most states because settlers remembered well the evil practices of European goldsmith banks.

Goldsmith banks were safe houses for the storing of client’s gold. In exchange for this gold deposit customers were issued bank notes. This “paper money” were redeemable in gold. The problem arose when these banks started issuing extra notes not secured by gold. As they printed these notes they themselves became extremely wealthy, and powerful.

This systematic robbery of productive individuals by so called parasitic bankers and their lawyers have gone unabated to this very day. The amount they control is formidable, and all under the management of international conglomerate banking systems working in conjunction. Unchecked and uncontrolled, The Federal Reserve System offers “sweetheart” loans to bank insiders, and provides the foundation for deficit spending and the unbridled growth of the federal debt. They control all interest rates.

Suddenly we are seeing the men behind the curtain of Oz. They are the masters of Europe and America with designs on dominative control of world economics, and those who do not tow their line are systematically destroyed.

“Paper money,” said Pelatiah Webster, “polluted the equity of our laws, turned them into engines of oppression, corrupted the justice of our public administration, destroyed the fortunes of thousands who had confidence in it, enervated the trade, husbandry, and manufactures of our country, and went far to destroy the morality of our people.” But what would we replace them with? If we attempt to displace these powerful institutions there will be a price to pay. So long as they can milk us by interest, war, and institutional control, we will be left alone. Weak, but allowed to watch Saturday football games… Indeed, we are at their mercy, because it we attempt to take them down, they will use their formidable powers to pull the economic rug, and we will implode. These greedy conglomerate bankers have almost destroyed us several times in our history. You see, a good parasite will only take enough from their host to survive, but at times they have been exceedingly greedy in their suckling, and without stops have almost destroyed us.

Keystone Publishing wrote this: “According to the Tennessee Laws (1715-1820, vol. II, p. 774), in the 1794 Jay Treaty, the United States agreed to pay 600,000 pounds sterling to King George III, as reparations for the American revolution. The Senate ratified the treaty in secret session and ordered that it not be published. When Benjamin Franklin’s grandson published it anyway, the exposure and resulting public uproar so angered the Congress that it passed the Alien and Sedition Acts (1798) so federal judges could prosecute editors and publishers for reporting the truth about the government. Since we had won the Revolutionary War, why would our Senators agree to pay reparations to the loser? And why would they agree to pay 600,000 pounds sterling, eleven years after the war ended? It doesn’t make sense, especially in light of Senate’s secrecy and later fury over being exposed, unless we assume our Senators had been bribed to serve the British monarchy and betray the American people. That’s subversion.

The United States Bank had been opposed by the Jeffersonians from the beginning, but the Federalists (the pro-monarchy party) won out in its establishment. The initial capitalization was $10,000,000 – — 80% of which would be owned by foreign bankers. Since the bank was authorized to lend up to $20,000,000 (double its paid in capital), it was a profitable deal for both the government and the bankers since they could lend, and collect interest on, $10,000,000 that didn’t exist.

However, the European bankers outfoxed the government and by 1796, the government owed the bank $6,200,000 and was forced to sell its shares. (By 1802, our government owned no stock in the United States Bank.)

The sheer power of the banks and their ability to influence representative government by economic manipulation and outright bribery was exposed in 1811,when the people discovered that European banking interests owned 80% of the bank. Congress therefore refused to renew the bank’s charter. This led to the withdrawal of $7,000,000 in specie by European investors, which in turn, precipitated an economic recession, and the War of 1812. That’s destruction.

There are undoubtedly other examples of the monarchy’s efforts to subvert or destroy the United States; some are common knowledge, others remain to be disclosed to the public. For example, David Dodge discovered a book called “2 VA LAW” in the Library of Congress Law Library. According to Dodge, “This is an un-catalogued book in the rare book section that reveals a plan to overthrow the constitutional government by secret agreements engineered by the lawyers. That is one of the reasons why this amendment was ratified by Virginia and the notification was lost in the mail. There is no public record that this book exists. That may sound surprising, but according to The Gazette (5/10/91), “the Library of Congress has 349,402 un-catalogued rare books and 13.9 million un-catalogued rare manuscripts.” There may be secrets buried in that mass of documents even more astonishing than a missing Constitutional Amendment.”

This missing amendment was brought to light in 1983 by a former Baltimore police investigator Tom Dunn and archival research expert David Dodge. They discovered the library’s oldest authentic copy of the Constitution of the United States, printed in 1825. The “missing” Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows: “If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.”

You be the judge as to why this amendment was omitted…

No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and like the other; or he will honor one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (wealth).- Matt 6:24 Yes, seeing the men behind the curtain is frightful, and no one wants to be a slave.

However,  be careful what you wish for, it might be granted. If you want to take down our monarchal institution, you had better have something of substance to replace it with. Otherwise there will be abject chaos, and our framework will disintegrate.  Indeed, a New World Order will pick up the pieces and build on the ashes that was once America, and these same entities will finally control all of Earth. We may not realize this for quite some time, as we war and hate each other into oblivion, all of it promoted by them. You see, these bankers make money on both destruction and reconstruction…

62109_1206229733749_full[1]By: Roger Landry (TLB)

This is a topic that by the very nature of the subject, raises many more questions than answers afforded. Here are some of the urgent questions that need to be asked and answered …

The thought of someone being able to read your mind by pointing a remote beam at your head is a very scary concept and one most of us would immediately push back against! In this day of tyranny when we are fully aware of the fact that our own government eavesdrops on our (supposed) private communications, including our phone calls, tweets, text messages, emails, cable box selections, and internet (social media) conversations, we are well aware that if the technology was available to them it would be utilized without reservations or limits … IS IT?

Now we are told that rudimentary mind reading is not only possible, but is a reality being practiced by as many as 90 companies globally. This process is in its infancy, cumbersome and by no means an exact science yet. BUT if we are being informed of this via the very complicit mainstream media, just how long has our government, via black ops and highly classified research program been working on, or with this? Is this a conspiracy theory, or by past revelations a possibility that cannot be discounted or ignored? And if so how advanced is this technology in actuality?

How long will it be before this process finds its way into our legal system? Do we in fact have any rights to deny a brain scan to determine our thoughts? Consider that your blood, DNA and sperm can already be used against you in a court of law, will your thoughts be next?

Privacy is defined as – The ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves or information about themselves and thereby reveal themselves selectively. The boundaries and content of what is considered private differ among cultures and individuals, but share basic common themes. Privacy is sometimes related to anonymity, the wish to remain unnoticed or unidentified in the public realm.

60ac5aed-2014-4924-ae7f-0a08a0655187[1]

 

With this new technology, and the very real prospects that our government must by default already posses a much more advanced mechanism for this intrusion into our privacy, will your ability or desire to be unique in your thoughts be in danger of evaporating? Will what makes you stand apart as an individual also put you in danger of being accused of being a danger to society, and who defines “a danger”?

This is a very slippery slope we are imparting on and one that must be considered in manners of the extreme. Is society ready for this, or will it foment another major push-back against those who would rule and control us. These are all unanswered questions, but the answers need to be found and well defined before this mechanism becomes common practice in both the commercial and legal aspect. The question presented to us all is “Will they be”?

Video intro by George Billing, TLB Contributor:

A thought is an expression of self a manifestation of conscience and of existence as put in the famous sentence of Decartes: “I think therefore I exist” Our understanding of fundamental civil rights are far behind technology. As mind reading science advances at an alarming rate our most fundamental right of developing and maintaining a thought is under siege. Please watch this short segment about this, life imitating science fiction, research that if unchecked is guaranteed to destroy our fundamental notion of being human. No one has the right to pry into the mind of another human being and read his private thoughts.

According to Monsanto and the biotech industry, “…Phytoremediation is the cleaning contaminated soil, water or air with the use of plants. Many plants are able to grow in contaminated media (soil, water or air). Although the plants absorb pollutants in the water or air, they have developed mechanisms to protect themselves against their toxic effect. They then store the pollutants in specific cell areas in the roots, stems or leaves, or convert them into non-toxic substances.

yc2[1]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Examples of contaminants include heavy metals, metalloids (arsenic), pesticides, explosives, solvents, salts and oils. Pollutants which have accumulated in the plants are removed by harvesting. The growth and harvest cycle must often be repeated to completely remove the contaminants from the soil. Suitable plants for removing heavy metal contamination include oilseed rape, mustard, sunflowers, barley and various varieties of grass…” (1)

The burning question is what happens when a plant that has been genetically modified for the pytoremediation (a fancy word for absorption of toxins) of lead, mercury, chromium or any other form of heavy metals escapes the clean up area and cross-pollinates other fields ultimately finding itself in the human food chain?

What happens when you eat GM sorghum that has stored toxic levels of Aluminum or Chromium within or worse when you supplement for your Omega 3 by taking flax seed oil extracted from GM flax with that soaks up pesticide residues that are a type II diabetes drug mimickers from the Sulfonylurea family! Well I hate to tell you that on both instances this has happened. The plants suck up the toxins in any field it is grown in, accumulating within the plant to dangerous and even deadly levels ready for human consumption. (2)

In another study dating back to 2005 Dr. J. Angel writes: “…We are not aware of any studies that have directly examined toxicity to higher animals consuming high metal hyperaccumulator biomass. However, it is quite reasonable to assume that that exposure to and consumption of high metal biomass could be toxic to wildlife. During large-scale phytoremediation, it will be nearly impossible to fence out all herbivores!…” (3)

So in other terms Monsanto and friends just shift the toxins from the contaminated soil directly into the chain of the ecosystem. So insects or cattle that feed off of the toxic rich plant will also get contaminated and the heavy metals will migrate within months not years, all the way up the food chain until they reach the top predator which unfortunately happens to be us humans. Ever ask yourself why the US is pushing Europe to accept higher levels of heavy metal contamination using trade and ‘Codex Alimentarius’ as the bio-weapon of choice? (4)

From hell’s kitchen: "GM HEAVY METAL PLANT"According to Monsanto and the biotech industry, "...Phytoremediation is the cleaning contaminated soil, water or air with the use of plants. Many plants are able to grow in contaminated media (soil, water or air). Although the plants absorb pollutants in the water or air, they have developed mechanisms to protect themselves against their toxic effect. They then store the pollutants in specific cell areas in the roots, stems or leaves, or convert them into non-toxic substances. Examples of contaminants include heavy metals, metalloids (arsenic), pesticides, explosives, solvents, salts and oils. Pollutants which have accumulated in the plants are removed by harvesting. The growth and harvest cycle must often be repeated to completely remove the contaminants from the soil. Suitable plants for removing heavy metal contamination include oilseed rape, mustard, sunflowers, barley and various varieties of grass..." (1)The burning question is what happens when a plant that has been genetically modified for the pytoremediation (a fancy word for absorption of toxics) of lead, mercury, chromium or any other form of heavy metals escapes the clean up area and cross-pollinates other fields ultimately finding itself in the human food chain? What happens when you eat GM sorghum that has stored toxic levels of Aluminum or Chromium within or worse when you supplement for your Omega 3 by taking flax seed oil extracted from GM flax with that soaks up pesticide residues that are a type II diabetes drug mimickers from the Sulfonylurea family! Well I hate to tell you that on both instances this has happened. The plants suck up the toxins in any field it is grown in, accumulating within the plant to dangerous and even deadly levels ready for human consumption. (2)In another study dating back to 2005 Dr. J. Angel writes: “…We are not aware of any studies that have directly examined toxicity to higher animals consuming high metal hyperaccumulator biomass. However, it is quite reasonable to assume that that exposure to and consumption of high metal biomass could be toxic to wildlife. During large-scale phytoremediation, it will be nearly impossible to fence out all herbivores!...” (3) So in other terms Monsanto and friends just shift the toxins from the contaminated soil directly into the chain of the ecosystem. So insects or cattle that feed off of the toxic rich plant will too get contaminated and the heavy metals will migrate within months not years, all the way up the food chain until they reach the top predator which unfortunately happens to be us humans. Ever ask yourself why the US is pushing Europe to accept higher levels of heavy metal contamination using trade and ‘Codex Alimentarius’ as the bio-weapon of choice? (4)In conclusion we find that nature is able to absorb heavy metal contaminants and has its own mechanisms of chelating and isolating those metals from getting into the ecosystem without the recruitment of Monsanto. In order to help nature with the process we can plant naturally occurring plants and trees known to naturally break down environmental toxins and isolating heavy metal without creating a greater environmental disaster such as in the case of genetically modified franken plants. Here’s a guide to such naturally occurring plants and trees that will save us this headache of unleashing the plagues of Genetically Modified Phytoremediation.

bilderberg[1]Welcome to The Liberty Beacon Rant with your host Roger Landry with his very lovely and intelligent co-host Paula Mathers. Tonight we will discuss a very controversial topic “The Elite”. So hold onto your hats because this ride is emotionally impacting …

TLB Rant Preface: The elite have plans for America.

When you start to research all the economic woes of of this nation, most paths will lead you back to one institution, the Federal Reserve. So lets step through the looking glass and examine a key point in history …

In 1913, Colonel Edward Mandell House helped to pick the charter members of the original Federal Reserve Board and had this to say in a private meeting with Woodrow Wilson (President) [1913-1921]

“Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property in a National system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging.

By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a chargeback for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer not being able to work and earn a living.

They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, forever to remain economic slaves through taxation, secured by their pledges.

They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two would figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debt to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges.

This will inevitably reap to us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor or to this fraud which we will call “Social Insurance.” Without realizing it, every American will insure us for any loss we may incur and in this manner; every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly.

The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and, we will employ the high office of the President of our dummy corporation to foment this plot against America.”

Does any of this sound familiar, ring a bell? Look around you at the world we live in today, research the role and actions of the Federal Reserve over the past 100 years and you will discover the prophetic reality of this quote.

Please listen to our rant as we discuss this and much more …

neonati-parole[1]By: MICHAEL HANLON

The world’s first geneticallymodified humans have been created.

The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments  in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain  genes from three ‘parents’.

TLB Note: This article is based on research from this 2001 report (PDF) http://humupd.oxfordjournals.org/content/7/4/428.full.pdf. We still feel the information is worth noting.

Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one  experimental programme at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of  St Barnabas in New Jersey.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a  female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an  attempt to enable them to conceive.

Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they  have inherited DNA from three adults –two women and one man.

The fact that the children have inherited the extra genes and incorporated  them into their ‘germline’ means that they will, in turn, be able to pass them  on to their own offspring.

Altering the human germline – in effect tinkering with the very make-up of  our species – is a technique shunned by the vast majority of the world’s  scientists.

Geneticists fear that one day this method could be used to create new races  of humans with extra, desired characteristics such as strength or high  intelligence.

Writing in the journal Human Reproduction, the researchers, led by fertility  pioneer Professor Jacques Cohen, say that this ‘is the first case of human  germline genetic modification resulting in normal healthy children’.

Some experts severely criticised the experiments. Lord Winston, of the  Hammersmith Hospital in West London, told the BBC yesterday: ‘Regarding the  treat-ment of the infertile, there is no evidence that this technique is worth  doing . . . I am very surprised that it was even carried out at this stage. It  would certainly not be allowed in Britain.’

John Smeaton, national director of the Society for the Protection of Unborn  Children, said: ‘One has tremendous sympathy for couples who suffer infertility  problems. But this seems to be a further illustration of the fact that the whole  process of in vitro fertilisation as a means of conceiving babies leads to  babies being regarded as objects on a production line.

‘It is a further and very worrying step down the wrong road for humanity.’  Professor Cohen and his colleagues diagnosed that the women were infertile  because they had defects in tiny structures in their egg cells, called  mitochondria.

They took eggs from donors and, using a fine needle, sucked some of the  internal material – containing ‘healthy’ mitochondria – and injected it into  eggs from the women wanting to conceive.

Because mitochondria contain genes, the babies resulting from the treatment  have inherited DNA from both women. These genes can now be passed down the  germline along the maternal line.

A spokesman for the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA),  which regulates ‘assisted reproduction’ technology in Britain, said that it  would not license the technique here because it involved altering the  germline.

Jacques Cohen is regarded as a brilliant but controversial scientist who has  pushed the boundaries of assisted reproduction technologies.

He developed a technique which allows infertile men to have their own  children, by injecting sperm DNA straight into the egg in the lab.

Prior to this, only infertile women were able to conceive using IVF. Last  year, Professor Cohen said that his expertise would allow him to clone children  –a prospect treated with horror by the mainstream scientific community.

‘It would be an afternoon’s work for one of my students,’ he said, adding  that he had been approached by ‘at least three’ individuals wishing to create a  cloned child, but had turned down their requests.
