Monsanto-Roundup-Dees466

by Jon Rappoport

Monsanto: science and fraud are the same thing
Especially when the media agree and offer their seal of approval

Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.”

Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled.

That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.

When you cut through the verbiage that surrounded the introduction of GMO food into America, you arrive at two key statements. One from Monsanto and one from the FDA, the agency responsible for overseeing, licensing, and certifying new food varieties as safe.

Quoted in the New York Times Magazine (October 25, 1998, “Playing God in the Garden), Philip Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications, famously stated: “Monsanto shouldn’t have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”

From the Federal Register, Volume 57, No.104, “Statement of [FDA] Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties,” here is what the FDA had to say on this matter: “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.”

The direct and irreconcilable clash of these two statements is no accident. It’s not a sign of incompetence or sloppy work or a mistake or a miscommunication. It’s a clear signal that the fix was in.

No real science. No deep investigation. No convincing evidence of safety. Passing the buck back and forth was the chilling and arrogant strategy through which Pandora’s Box was pried opened and GMO food was let into the US food supply.

In order for this titanic scam to work, the media had to cooperate. Reporters had to be a) idiots and b) sell-outs.

Reporters and their editors let the story die. No sane principled journalist would have cut bait, but who said mainstream reporters are sane or principled?

Underneath the Monsanto-FDA buck-passing act, there was a conscious deal to give a free pass to GMO crops. This had nothing to do with science or health or “feeding the world.” It was about profits. It was also about establishing a new monopoly on food.

Not only would big agribusiness dominate the planet’s food supply as never before, it would strengthen its stranglehold through patents on novel types of seeds which were engineered.

It’s very much like saying, “A cob of corn is not a plant, it’s a machine, and we own the rights to every one of those yellow machines.”

How was Monsanto able to gather so much clout?

There was one reason and one reason only. Putting the world’s food supply into fewer hands was, and is, a major item on the Globalist agenda. If it weren’t, the FDA-Monsanto approval scam would have been exposed in a matter of weeks.

Major newspapers and television networks would have attacked the obvious con job like packs of wild dogs and torn it to pieces.

But once the scam had been given a free pass, the primary corporate-government tactic was to accomplish a fait accompli, a series of events that was irreversible.

In this case, it was about gene drift. From the beginning, it was well known that GMO plants release genes that blow in the wind and spread from plant to plant, crop to crop, and field to field. There is no stopping it.

Along with convincing enough farmers to lock themselves into GMO-seed contracts, Monsanto bought up food-seed companies in order to engineer the seeds…and the gene-drift factor was the ace in the hole.

Sell enough GMO seeds, plant enough GMO crops, and you flood the world’s food crops with Monsanto genes.

Back in the 1990s, the prince of darkness, Michael Taylor, who had moved through the revolving door between the FDA and Monsanto several times, and is now the czar of food safety at the FDA—Taylor said, with great conviction, that the GMO revolution was unstoppable; within a decade or two, an overwhelming percentage of food grown on planet Earth would be GMO.

Taylor and others knew. They knew about gene drift, and they also knew that ownership of the world’s food, by a few companies, was a prime focus for Globalist kings.

Control food and water, and you hold the world in your hand.

Here is evidence that, even in earlier days, Monsanto knew about and pushed for the Globalist agenda. Quoted by J. Flint, in his 1998 “Agricultural Giants Moving Towards Genetic Monopolism,” Robert Fraley, head of Monsanto’s agri-division, stated: “What you are seeing is not just a consolidation of [Monsanto-purchased] seed companies. It’s really a consolidation of the entire food chain.”

And as for the power of the propaganda in that time period, I can think of no better statement than the one made on January 25th, 2001, by the outgoing US Secretary of Agriculture, Dan Glickman. As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Glickman said:

“What I saw generically on the pro-biotech [GMO] side was the attitude that the technology was good and that it was almost immoral to say that it wasn’t good, because it was going to solve the problems of the human race and feed the hungry and clothe the naked. And there was a lot of money that had been invested in this, and if you’re against it, you’re Luddites, you’re stupid. There was rhetoric like that even here in this department [USDA]. You felt like you were almost an alien, disloyal, by trying to present an open-minded view on some of these issues being raised. So I pretty much spouted the rhetoric that everybody else around here spouted; it was written into my speeches.”

Glickman reveals several things in these remarks: he was spineless; people at the Dept. of Agriculture were madly buying into the Monsanto cover story about feeding the world; and there had to be a significant degree of infiltration at his Agency.

The last point is key. This wasn’t left to chance. You don’t get a vocal majority of Dept. of Agriculture personnel spouting Monsanto propaganda merely because the fairy tale about feeding the world sounds so good. No, there are people working on the inside to promote the “social cause” and make pariahs out of dissenters.

You need special background and training to pull that off. It isn’t an automatic walk in the park. This is professional psyop and intelligence work.

It isn’t rinky-dink stuff. To tune up bureaucrats and scientists, you have to have a background in manipulation. You have to know what you’re doing. You have to be able to build and sustain support, without giving your game away.

Psyop specialists are hired to help make overarching and planet-wide agendas come true, as populations are brought under sophisticated and pathological elites who care, for example, about feeding the world as much as a collector cares about paralyzing and pinning butterflies on a panel in a glass case.

Here is David Rockefeller, writing in his 2003 Memoirs:

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

The Globalists play for keeps.

Owning the food of the world is part of their strike-force action plan, and Monsanto is a technocratic arm of that plan.

thematrix12

Meanwhile, the controlled press treats the whole sordid Monsanto/FDA story with its time-honored policy of “he said-he said.” This policy dictates that stories merely present both sides of a conflict without drawing conclusions.

Monsanto’s lies and crimes and cover-ups are everywhere. You could wear sunglasses and find them in the dark.

The NY Times and the Washington Post could sell millions more papers on the back of Monsanto stories. It would be a bonanza for them. But no. They don’t care. They’d rather keep declining and losing readers. They’d rather die.

Normally, a business doesn’t commit suicide, especially when it sees exactly how to resuscitate itself. But here we are dealing with an agenda which can’t be disturbed. Globalism, and its agri-techno partner, Monsanto, are creating a planetary future. Major media are part and parcel of that op. They are selling it.

Again, we aren’t talking about sloppy reporting or accidental omissions of fact or boggling incompetence or ignorance about science. We are talking about conscious intent to deceive.

Yes, now and then the controlled media will release a troubling piece about Monsanto. But placement and frequency are everything. How often do these stories run? Do they run as the lead or do we find them on page 3? Are reporters assigned to keep pounding on a basic story and reveal more and more crimes? Does the basic story gather steam over the course of weeks and months?

These are the decisions that make or break a story. In the case of Monsanto and the FDA, the decisions were made a long time ago.

Part of every reporter’s training in how the real world works, if he has any ideals at all, is marching into his editor’s office with his hair on fire demanding to be given an assignment to expose a crime. The editor, knowing the true agenda of his newspaper or television network, tells the reporter:

“We’ve already covered that.”

“It’s old news.”

“People aren’t interested in it.”

“It’s too complicated.”

“The evidence you’re showing me is thin.”

“You’ll never get to the bottom of it.”

“The people involved won’t talk to you.”

And if none of those lies work, the editor might say, “If you keep pushing this, it would be bad for your career. You’ll lose access to other stories. You’ll be thought of as weird…”

This is how the game works at ground level. But make no mistake about it, the hidden agenda is about protecting an elite’s op from exposure.

If NBC, for example, gave its golden boy, Brian Williams, the green light, he would become an expert on Monsanto in three days. He’d become a tiger. He’d affect a whole set of morally outraged poses and send Monsanto down into Hell.

Don’t misunderstand. Brian hasn’t been waiting to move in for the kill. But wind him up and point to a target and he’ll go there.

However, no one at NBC in the executive offices will point him at Monsanto or the FDA.

All the major reporters at news outlets and all the elite television anchors are really psyop specialists. It’s just that most of them don’t know it.

One outraged major reporter who woke up and got out of the business put it to me this way: “When I was in the game, I looked at the news as a big public restroom. My one guiding principle was: don’t piss on your shoes. That meant covering a story that was considered out of bounds. If I talked to the boss about one of those stories, he’d look me up and down and say, ‘Hey, you pissed on your shoes. Get out of here.’”

ctdeniers466

By: Bernie Suarez

As we approach the end of another year let’s remember that humanity is now subjected to yet another full year of spraying with metal particles. Not just humanity but all the poor creatures on earth are being sprayed, every plant and every tree, the bees and birds, the soil and all the little creatures that live in it, even the fish and inhabitants of the sea are suffering as aluminum, sulfur, barium and other toxic metals pile on everywhere altering the pH of the soil, contaminating the water and attacking the very essence of life on earth.

Yes, chemtrails spraying is this big a deal and as another year goes by the globalist and their military industrial complex marches forward with their insanity to control the weather, deliberately engineering a much cooler planet by literally blocking our sunlight, and dumping enough toxic metals all over the planet to explain the destruction and slow death of many crops (ie food supply), all to the benefit of companies like Monsanto and the U.S. government.

So as we wrap another year, let us refresh our memory and lay out 15 points about chemtrails and chembomb spraying that everyone should be mindful of. Points that can be used as a weapon to silence online “contrails” trolls whose only mission is to keep the blind sheep asleep and in doubt about the otherwise plain-to-see in-your-face evidence of the chemtrails/chembomb geoengineering programs which are ongoing. Let’s remind our uneducated friends and online trolls that:

1. Often we see ordinary planes who are not spraying, flying in the same air space and altitude as those who are spraying leaving long trails. Given that “contrails” are dependent predominantly on the temperature and humidity of the surrounding atmosphere at that particular atmospheric pressure (which is measurable), and given that changes don’t occur very quickly in nearby airspaces this should offer no less than a head scratch for anyone with an understanding of the issue and willing to apply science, reason and common sense.

2. Planes spraying are almost always unmarked not ordinary commercial planes with passengers. To this day, no one has filmed an ordinary commercial (labeled) passenger jet spraying. It doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened or is not happening, but it is something to consider. This goes along with the unusual government dual strategy of both:

A. Admitting that spraying is real, it’s necessary, cheap, important, developing and well planned, all in an effort to save the planet.
AND

B. Simultaneously the government and in particular its politicians and media and (Hollywood) TV mouthpieces have made a collective decision to DENY chemtrails spraying 9/11 style. Amazingly, when the issue is brought up to the general public it is said to not be happening and it’s all a “conspiracy”. The unmarked planes is a reminder of their commitment to operating in a clandestine manner while simultaneously advancing their plans and quietly conditioning the scholastic types that these are indeed legitimate programs to save the earth.

3. Planes that are spraying almost always fly with transponders off. One can verify flight data information by logging on to a site like flightaware.com and look for the plane when it flies over. Rarely if ever, will you see the plane show up on the website flight listing because it is not sending out signals. This speaks again to their commitment to secrecy and denial.

4. Spraying planes seem to fly in senseless patterns. They often fly in directions not commonly known for commercial flight including making U-turns and sharp turns.

5. Easily verifiable money-making weather modification and atmosphere-manipulating patents are available for anyone to review. These are not conspiracies or secret rumors, these are real patents. These patents are in use or they wouldn’t exist.

6. Spraying planes don’t follow any order of nature with respect to temperature and humidity (important to the “contrails” claims). Unlike a natural (“contrails”) event, the chemtrails we see being sprayed in our skies sometimes every day follow no set temperatures or humidity. In Southern California for example, we see spraying regardless of whether the temperature on the ground is 50, 70, or 90 degrees Fahrenheit.  We also see the spraying at very low and very high humidity. This disjointed pattern with nature’s temperature and humidity is a stark contrast to what government geoengineers claim is the nature of contrails. All supposed government “contrails” studies show that “contrails” will only form under certain specific temperatures and humidity in accordance to the rules of nature. In other words, according to the rules of nature there are set temperatures and humidities that guarantee no contrails. These temperatures and humidities unfortunately never translate over to reality when one applies the Environmental Lapse Rate (ELR) formula to the known current temperature on the ground to calculate the temperature at plane altitude level.

7. Jets that spray our skies can often be seen to stop their spraying suddenly then restart seconds later. Something characteristic of a deliberate shutting off or perhaps a pause to change chemical canister from which the chemicals are being drawn from. With contrails on the other hand we would expect a smooth steady continuation of the condensation trail being created by (supposedly) the ice crystals that (supposedly) form spontaneously from the combustion of ordinary jet fuel. This is not at all what we see when we look up.

8. Throughout the year anyone can easily predict when they chemtrails will stop. In regions with very steady climate as in Southern California, this prediction is based strictly on observation of their spraying schedule not on the temperature or humidity. Hot or cold, we will see spraying throughout the year, and we’ll see the spraying (predictably) stop at specific times of the year.

9. We can observe weather patterns that are often inconsistent with the established weather forecast. The difference? The spraying of the sky. Often the forecast calls for sunshine and blue skies and we’ll observe the planes ruin the sky leaving cloudy overcast skies instead. A sharp difference from the predicted weather.

10. There are known weather modification private companies who admit they manipulate the sky for the purposes of weather modification. This information is public, real and easily verifiable.

11. Attempt at cloud seeding, weather modification, engineered drought, rain making and other manipulation and geoengineering of our skies is admitted by government agents, educators, geoengineers and other entities all claiming it’s for the purposes of “global warming” and planet cooling. This admission is nonetheless the proof these programs are ongoing.

12. Patents for specifically aluminum resistant seeds are secured by the USDA and promoted by Monsanto. A bizarre coincident if this is not related to spraying programs which also employ the spraying of aluminum in the sky which eventually falls back to the ground.

13. Photographs of our skies prior to 2000 show little to no lines in the sky. Everyone with a photos collection has this proof in their hands.

14. Where is the documentation of protestors protesting sky lines back in the 1990′s? How about the 1980′s, 70′s, 60′s, 50′s etc? Where is the history of genuine writers (not government scientists), authors of books and activists writing about the problem of lines in the sky? Where are the photos of activists packing the streets protesting sky lines in the 1970′s? Did no one care about the environment back then?? These images and activist literature don’t exists because movements only occur to address things that are actually happening in that generation. Chemtrails and sky lines are actually happening now thus we NOW have a movement to address this serious issue.

15. Trolls and disinformation agents claim ordinary planes have always made persistent contrails when they combust fuel and these trails inevitably change our weather and global climate as a result and block our sunlight. These wild claims suggest that dating back to the Wright brothers invention of the first plane, the invention turned out to be a weapon of mass destruction. As bizarre as this sounds, this shifting of the blame for the destruction of our skies from today’s U.S. government, U.S Air Force, the DOD and all its private contractors and accomplice allies to the Wright brothers is inescapably at the root of their argument. Also at the root of this argument is that blue skies were never the norm even in sunny southern California or Hawaii due to natural contrails formation. This bizarre argument of course is a psyop on those who are unaware of the issue and the younger generations who are now being conditioned to believe this statement is true and that massive weird feathery and smudgy looking clouds injected in the stratosphere and troposphere with chemical trails flown into them is normal.

One thing we should all keep in mind about chemtrails/chembomb spraying is that the military owns this issue. Activists have as much chance of stopping the U.S. Military Industrial Complex as they do of stopping chemtrails. The battle we face is a very long one and de-funding the U.S. military in particular the U.S.A.F may be one option for stopping this. To stop chemtrails we’ll need other countries and power figures to step in to help. The depth of brainwashing, TV and mainstream media hypnosis and conditioning that Americans are under makes this an even more concerning issue. All hands are needed on deck to push back against the U.S. Military Industrial Complex on this issue.

I firmly believe chemtrails/chembombs spraying is by far the greatest challenge humanity faces and could very well seal its doom. Help spread awareness of this issue, don’t give up and keep doing what you can to expose this issue.

As I’ve stated many times, those of us who are alive now are firsthand eyewitnesses to this crime against humanity. We are that generation that people 200 years from now would love to interview regarding the legend of the blue skies which by then will be a fairytale. Future generations will not even know that there was a time when the sky was plain blue without any lines in the sky. They will be so conditioned to see the artificial manipulation of our skies they will not have a clue that blue skies were once the norm.

Save your personal evidence for future generations. I urge everyone to store and preserve all your childhood photos of plain blue skies and keep them somewhere safe. Make copies of your old photos if possible, you have no idea how valuable these will be to someone in the future.

As for us here and now, we cannot take on the Military Industrial Complex head on but we can strategize other steps for fighting back including filing lawsuits and writing letters at least if only for the sake of keeping a physical record of our protest recorded in government records. Also write about this crime in articles, blogs and books especially. This will leave a trail of literature for future generations to see.

The Hydro Monopoly

Can you imagine a world where electricity flows in an open and free market? Nicola Tesla did. But before his vision of free energy could be realized the elite oligarchy seized control and monopolized an entire industry which it controls to this day. Ever since the 1970s there has been a concerted effort to bring all hydro systems under the umbrella of the North American Union.

Radiation-Nuclear-Power-World-Globe-Danger466

Monday, December 15, 2014 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

Beta radiation levels are off the charts at monitoring sites all across North America, according to new reports. But experts are blaming these radiation spikes on practically everything except for Fukushima.

Data gathered from tracking units in California, Arizona, Illinois and elsewhere reveal radiation levels up to 50,000 percent higher than what was observed at the same time last year, and in some cases compared to levels seen this past summer.

EnviroReporter.com says the impacted sites are scattered throughout the country and aren’t just confined to the West Coast. Readings taken near Los Angeles; Chicago; Montgomery, Alabama; and Madison, Wisconsin, reveal total beta counts per minute (CPM) greatly exceeding the 1,000 CPM threshold considered by the government to be problematic.

In Tucson, Arizona, for instance, a 460 CPM reading was recently taken, which is more than 10 times higher than the reading taken last year on November 27. Similarly, Phoenix, Arizona’s 735 CPM reading measured more than 21 times higher than last year’s reading.

San Diego appears to be one of the hardest-hit areas, with a CPM reading of 650, as of October 1. This figure is 60 times higher than it was last year on the same date, despite the fact that San Diego’s normal background radiation rate typically hovers around 20 CPM.

“U.S. Environmental Protection Agency RadNet radiation monitors have detected renewed surges in atmospheric readings of dangerous beta radiation across the country,” explains EnviroReporter.com about the seemingly inexplicable phenomenon.

“Over a dozen metropolitan test sites have registered four-month highs in EnviroReporter.com’s most recent comprehensive assessment.”

Radiation testing site near Chicago records radiation levels thousands of times higher than maximum safety threshold

Commenting on the situation, one EnviroReporter.com reader offered his own assessment that these readings are “astronomically high.” He was quick to denounce Fukushima as a possible cause, though, adding that this would only be possible if “something there has changed dramatically.”

Either way, the radiation levels being detected are still a major cause for concern. Anything above 100 CPM is considered by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to be a potential hazardous materials situation requiring the deployment of hazmat protocols.

At a testing site in St. Charles, Illinois, located just west of Chicago, a recent peak reading of 7,298 CPM caught the attention of some environmental activists, who chided the media for remaining silent on the issue.

This reading represents a nearly 7,300 percent radiation increase beyond CHP’s safety threshold. This site apparently experienced a series of massive radiation spikes beginning at approximately 1:00 am and lasting for as long as six hours.

California official blames plastic eating utensils for radiation spike, insist it can’t be Fukushima

Back in California, county officials in San Mateo recorded radiation levels at a local beach measuring 100 micro-REM per hour, or 1 microsievert per hour, which is five times the normal amount. According to the Half Moon Bay Review, local environmental health director Dean Peterson was quick to denounce that this level poses any risk to human health.

When asked where this radiation might be coming from, Peterson admitted that he is “befuddled,” but also denied that Fukushima could possibly be a cause. Instead, he says, it may be due to an excess of disposable eating utensils polluting the area.

“I honestly think the end result of this is that it’s just higher levels of background radiation,” stated Peterson to the HMB Review, adding that red-painted disposable eating utensils can also contribute to localized radiation spikes.

Geoengineering1

Preface by: Roger Landry (TLB)

Nothing man-made, other than a full scale nuclear war, has the ability to destroy all life on this planet quicker and more assuredly than Geo-engineering!

From the massive chemical spraying to the even more massive nano-aluminum particulate spraying, humanity has front row seats to the high speed progressive destruction of the biosphere. Being the life support system for everything living on this planet, when it fails … so we will soon follow.

Massive animal and fish die-offs globally, aluminum saturated soil poisoning all plant life it encounters, fresh water polluted to a point it is all but undrinkable or unable to support aquatic life and weather that can no longer be described as anything even close to … normal

Please read the short written intro and listen closely to Dane’s outstanding presentation. Because if we continue to ignore this, we will in fact be bequeathing a dying or dead world to our children … a world that may see them as the last generation of humanity to exist on this planet. This is not fear porn or an exaggeration … This my friends is the frightening reality we are faced with today!

By TLB Contributor: Dane Wigington

This video presentation was done in Northern California on November 21st, 2014, it is a wake up call. When the ship is going down, one must prioritize their time, their actions, and their energy.

The planet is dying.

Though there are countless forms of damage to Earth from human activities, climate engineering is mathematically the greatest single source, it is the epitome of human insanity. Our society has been very well trained to turn two blind eyes to the big picture, and to simply spend their time and energies only on their own pursuit of personal pleasures.

If this paradigm is not overturned, and people do not choose to stand and face the challenges closing in on us, we will have no chance. Now is when we decide why we are here. Now is when we decide what it means to show our love for our children. If life on Earth is to have any possibility of survival, if our children are to have any chance of a future, we must all stand together in the battle to preserve what life is left on our once thriving planet.

If we do not act today, we will not have tomorrow.

gmo invisible danger

Contributed to TLB by: Rose Stevens & John Balatinecz, PhD

Two Canadian citizens’ respond to the pro-GMO propaganda of American Professor, Dr Kevin Folta, while lecturing in Winnipeg during late October 2014. (see link to Dr. Folta’s comments below)

Letter to the Editor: by– Rose Stevens, Winnipeg, and John Balatinecz, PhD, Toronto We are two Canadians, one a hobby organic farmer (RS), the other a retired university professor (JB). We are deeply concerned about the impacts GMO crops have on human and environmental health. In fact, that concern is what brought us to meet on the web. And if that concern makes us into “ACTIVISTS”, so be it. At least we care about people and environmental health. The same cannot be said of the corporate transnational agri-giant cartels, the producers and promoters of GMOs, with their so-called “gifts of “modern agriculture”. You can not grow healthy foods with poison! Dr Folta was quoted in the Winnipeg Free Press, as saying:

“Concerns about GMOs are based on misinformation and fear. In 17 years of use, there has not been one single health consequence related to these products.”

This simply is not true—on the contrary: this is the misinformation. What Folta conveniently forgot to mention in his remarks is the fact that GMO crops are laced with agro-poison residues (peddled to unsuspecting farmers as Herbicides/pesticides). It is true that these chemicals kill weeds and insects, thus making agriculture more convenient. But they also kill honey bees, and harm human health very significantly, especially over the long run.

Sadly and unfortunately, GMO crops, largely sprayed with these chemicals and foods which contain varying traces of these toxins/poisons are not required to be tested for residues by Health Canada and/or independent laboratories. Health Canada simply accepts unverified confirmations on safety supplied to them by the GMO crop giants, and their downstream customer food processors.

That casual approach to presumed safety use by Health Canada may soon be regretted. This, especially when the class action lawsuits commence charging liability and responsibility for harm to human and environmental health. The recently initiated $400-million lawsuit by Ontario’s beekeepers against Syngenta and Bayer CropScience is an indication of what is to come. The proverbial “Tip of The Iceberg”.

Further, there is plenty of independent scientific and medical evidence showing significant harm of foods containing GMO’s sprayed with deadly chemicals. For example, two prominent American scientists Drs. Samsel & Seneff of MIT) systematically collected, compiled and analyzed 286 scientific references world-wide. Their conclusion:

“There is a causal relationship between herbicide (e.g. Roundup/glyphosate) contamination and chronic diseases and conditions (such as obesity, diabetes, infertility, cancer, autism, liver disease, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease).”

American Physician, Dr Jeffrey Ritterman of San Francisco reported recently (2014):

“Monsanto’s herbicide (Roundup) is linked to cancer and fatal kidney disease.” The American Academy of Environmental Medicine stated: “Physicians should educate their patients, the medical community and the general public about the health risks of GMOs, and avoid GM foods when possible.”

These folks are not some misguided anti-GMO “activists”, spreading fear and propaganda.

Finally, Dr Folta’s incredulous statement why Europeans reject GMO foods: apparently for “cultural and political reasons” is also patently false! The fact is the Europeans accept the findings of independent science, indicating potentially serious harm from consuming GMO foods. In fact, a year ago, 300 prominent European scientists signed a declaration, stating:

“As scientists, physicians, academics and experts from disciplines relevant to the scientific, legal, social and safety assessment aspects of GMOs, we strongly reject claims by GM seed developers, and some scientists, commentators and journalists indicating that there is a scientific consensus on GMO safety.”

Consequently, the EU and up to 64 countries world-wide have banned or introduced mandatory labeling of GMO foods some time now. In Canada and the US, on the other hand, even that simple step—mandatory labeling—was & is prevented by the powerful pro-GMO lobby. For example, in the US the bio-tech giants and their corporate friends have spent over $200-Million during the last few years to fight mandatory labeling initiatives. Canada, of course, follows the retrogressive “lead” of the US; perhaps because of the “shackles” of NAFTA?

Could it be that corporate-friendly trade agreements over-ride the importance of human and environmental health? We also wonder why the transnational pro-GMO cartel is against mandatory labeling; have they got something to hide? If GMO foods are indeed harmless and kosher, why not label them and say:

“Good GMO foods, better for your health! The combined gifts of advanced biotechnology and modern agriculture!”

It is now time, even urgent that all people in Canada rally and demand that Canada ratify the UN convention on biodiversity preservation (Cartagena Protocol), which should make it difficult for foreign corporations to steal, harm or make extinct, Canada’s biological diversity. The 11th hour is upon us. Better to initiate the “Precautionary Principle” and ban the use of all poisons used in commercial agriculture today and resort to the tried and true practices of chemical-free organic farming because …

Our and the planet’s survival depends on it!

pesticide sprayingPlan would give State Department of Food and Agriculture approval to spray with no public review

Sacramento, CA —

The California Department of Food and Agriculture has published a draft of an environmental plan giving the agency authority to spray toxic pesticides anywhere in California, at any time into the indefinite future. The blanket approval would allow no opportunity for affected communities to stop the spraying.

According to the plan, the state’s agency would have the right to approve new pesticides and other expansions of the spray program with no public review, notice or analysis of the health and environmental impacts in specific locations to be sprayed.

The plan, described in the Statewide Plant Pest Prevention and Management Programmatic Environmental Impact Report, relies on a list of 79 pesticides and other chemicals, including substances linked to cancer, birth defects, miscarriages, and reproductive system impacts. Many of the pesticides are also lethal to bees and other pollinators, fish and other aquatic life, birds, and mammals. Among the PEIR pesticides are several neonicotinoids, which many scientists believe are directly linked to the collapse of honeybee populations.

The environmental review’s cursory analysis of the health and ecological impacts of these chemicals fails to answer many essential questions, such as the effects of pesticide exposure on:

  • Infants, pregnant women, and other sensitive populations;
  • Children whose schools could be sprayed under the plan;
  • Rivers, streams, and drinking water wells.

The plan directly threatens organic farming—one of California’s fastest-growing industries—because organic farmers could be forced to spray non-organic pesticides as part of state treatment programs. Although the state’s review admits that “treated products would not command the typical premium prices demanded for organic produce in the marketplace,” it dismisses the impact of spraying on organic farmers by asserting that they could simply switch to conventional farming.

Public comment on the draft environmental impact report is open until Oct. 31, 2014. This comment period is the only official opportunity for the public to voice concerns about the Pest PEIR.“This plan’s analysis of health and environmental impacts is so general and cursory as to be useless for determining the actual impact of the Department of Food and Agriculture’s spraying in any specific location in California,” said Earthjustice Attorney Elizabeth Forsyth. “Its provisions for future environmental review attempt to prevent public scrutiny of future program activities, including the agency’s approval of new pesticides, new treatment areas, and new target pests.”

“This document attempts the impossible: to analyze every impact on water, air, soil, sensitive species, and human health, anywhere in the state, now and into the future, including for pesticides that have not yet even been identified,” said Attorney Jason Flanders of Aqua Terra Aeris Law Group. “In particular, the agency’s discussion of the impacts of pesticide spraying on water quality is so generalized as to be meaningless, failing to inform local citizens what actual impacts will occur to their local water bodies and drinking water sources, and failing to adhere to basic state and federal water quality laws.”

“If the Department of Food and Agriculture is allowed to approve this plan, it will set a precedent for sweeping, unchecked power by state agencies in matters involving human and environmental health,” said Debbie Friedman, founder of Moms Advocating Sustainability (MOMAS). “In view of the agency’s recent example of poor judgment, aerially spraying populated areas for the light brown apple moth, an insect that has turned out to pose no threat; it would be a grave mistake to grant the agency such sweeping authority.”

“Although the Department of Food and Agriculture claims to use ‘least-toxic’ pest management, the management methods and chemicals in this plan continue the same ‘spray first, ask questions later’ approach that the agency has been using for decades—and that has failed, according to a recent study of the agency’s own fruit fly treatment data,” said Nan Wishner of the California Environmental Health Initiative (CEHI).

“This plan’s assertion that organic farmers who are forced to spray pesticides can simply sell their harvest as conventional instead, or grow other crops, is unrealistic and jeopardizes the livelihood of organic farmers,” said Ronnie Cummins, international director of the Organic Consumers Association and its Mexico affiliate, Via Organica. “Moreover, the statement that organic farms that have been sprayed could sell later harvests from the same season as organic undermines the meaning of the organic label and consumers’ trust in it.”

“Even tiny amounts of pesticides can cause serious health risks. Some can cause serious long-term problems for children, including cancer, asthma and IQ loss,” stated Caroline Cox, Research Director for the Center for Environmental Health. “State programs should be based on sound scientific evaluations of the actual risks posed by introduced species and should recognize that repeated chemical treatments in neighborhoods and on food are unsustainable, weaken the resilience of our state’s agricultural system, and put us on a never-ending toxic treadmill.”

“Pesticides continue to poison some of California’s most threatened wildlife,” stated Jonathan Evans of the Center for Biological Diversity. “California has better solutions than business-as-usual pesticide application, to minimize the toxic legacy in our environment.”

Engineering Winter Storms

By TLB Contributor: Dane Wigington

How is it there are such anomalous cold events on an ever rapidly warming planet? Welcome to climate engineering and “artificial ice nucleation for weather modification”. The geoengineers were able to manipulate some weather headlines and produce a few cold records in the Eastern US  just before the end of October, 2014, with what they labeled as the “polar blast”(the constant record heat in so many parts of the planet are generally ignored by mainstream media). Engineered snow storms are a major part of the ongoing climate engineering assault on our biosphere. Massive fluctuations of temperatures and conditions accompany such unnatural events. There is no longer any “natural” weather, none.

Surreal Photos From Slovenia’s Worst Ice Storm In History, (though mainstream media tried to make it seem as if such an event had happened before by saying it was the worst “in living memory”, statistically it was an unprecedented event). I was contacted by people from Slovenia who made it completely clear that they believed this ice cataclysm was the result of weather warfare, punishment for resistance to outside political pressures.

100,000 Cattle Die in Engineered Storm on October 4th, 2013

The article “Engineered Snow Storms Begin Again” , was posted as the geoengineered snow storm over South Dakota was just unfolding. As shown with weather maps in the article, the temperatures all around this “winter storm” were not just above freezing, but extremely warm. Regions near SD were in the 85 degree range. Snow began falling in many areas of this “storm” at temps into the high 40s.

If you view the video in the article linked at the bottom of this comment, you will see that many areas littered with dead cattle have no snow left at all, just dead cows.

The Weather Channel theatrically named this storm “Atlas”. This storm was as unprecedented as it was unnatural. The massive water content of chemically nucleated snow makes it as heavy as concrete.

http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/heavy-wet-snow-is-now-often-the-norm/

In addition to the cows being trapped in the “concrete snow”, the “endothermic” reaction in chemically nucleated snow would likely make for temporarily extremely cold snow/ice temperatures in spite of the warmer air temperatures in this “storm”. (Endothermic reaction from barium and ammonium can drop temps almost 100 degrees as shown in youtube video in original “Engineered Snow Storms Begin Again” article below.

Though this effect is not long lasting as one can see by the now almost snow free South Dakota, for the cows temporarily trapped in this concrete chemically reactive snow, it was more than enough to kill them. The adhesive characteristics of the unnaturally nucleated snow was also likely a factor, cows will not breath through their mouth even when suffocating. If their nostrils clog, they will die.

I contacted the South Dakota Ranchers association and tried to pass on data about geoengineering and weather modification to them. The representative I reached was not receptive as she felt “our government would never modify the weather”.

I hope we can all make a concerted effort to seek out people, groups, and organizations in South Dakota and other locations that will soon enough be impacted by the ongoing geoengineering insanity, and give them a “heads up” . Send them an appeal to investigate and back that appeal up with credible data/articles and a source for more information. We must all work together to get the word out now, time is short.

How can there be so much snow at such high temperatures? Are we to think it should be snowing at temperatures in the 40s not far away from the forecast temperatures of 85 degrees or more in Chicago which is even further north? In fact, the temperatures most of the way around this “major snow event” are very high, have the laws of physics changed?

The Geoengineers Are Going For Broke

In 2013 the parade of engineered winter storms began with winter storm “Atlas”. This theatrical name (courtesy of the Weather Channel) added to the spin potential of this orchestrated weather event. Since the Rothschild’s have taken control of the Weather Channel (and a number of other weather forecast agencies) it appears the primary function of this agency is to spin weather events that are completely unnatural,absurd, and totally engineered, into something the public can accept as “normal”. We will soon enough see how the engineered winter weather theater unfolds for 2014.

Rothschild’s, And The Geoengineering Empire

Rothschild_houseWhy would the Rothschild’s be so interested in owning the largest and most recognized weather modeling organization out there? Why would E.L. Rothschild LLC wish to have the controlling interest in the worlds leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobil? Because when you are involved in climate decimating geoengineering programs, you must also control the “forecast” models to cover your tracks. read more…

 

Weather Channel Helping To Hide The Geoengineering Assault

chemtrailsThe Weather Channel Switches To Reality Shows

In the last two plus years, the “Weather Channel” has increasingly shown it is not so concerned about covering accurate information on the weather. Reality shows are now its main feature. In years past, whenever one turned on the “Weather Channel”, one got the weather. Not so any more. read more…

 

The new list for Weather Channel named winter storms is below. Such theatrical names add to the Rothschild’s owned Weather Channel’s attempt to convince the public of winter’s ferocity even while the planet is rapidly heating. The climate engineers can and are creating large scale toxic temporary cool-downs at the cost of a worsened overall warming effect to the planet.

Can “Man” Control the Weather?

N.TeslaLet’s examine what man knows today about weather control.”…There are over 400 patents in the U.S. Patent Office registered to Nikola Tesla.Tesla also wrote of a method whereby weather could be controlled so that deserts could become farmlands, and where cold could be modified and heat tempered.

“Shortly after the turn of the century, Tesla theorized that by using coordinated radio impulses, it should be possible to manipulate the part of the earth’s magnetic field that resides at the edge of space up in the ionosphere by generating giant standing waves. These waves, said Tesla, could then be manipulated to change the course of giant wind patterns, like the jet stream, that shape our weather.” (From “The Killer Electric”, by Lowell Ponte, published in Gallery magazine, August 1978.)

Barium and Ammonium are elements named in some “ice nucleation for weather modification” patents. The combination of these elements causes an “endothermic” reaction that can lower temperatures from 70 degrees +/- to as low as -30. Sound incredible? View the 3 minute video below and see for yourself.

Are Geoengineered Snow Storms Now The Norm?

Geoengineered Snow Storms Wreaking Havoc around the Globe
aerial-spraying1-300x219Can Snow Storms Really Be Engineered?There is a mountain of data including already conducted experiments, satellite imagery, lab tests of snow, observations on the ground, and multiple existing patents, all of which point solidly to the conclusion that snow storms are being engineered with well established weather modification processes.

The entire climate system is being effected to a degree that can not truly be known. There is in essence no “natural” weather at this point since the entire climate system is being derailed and disrupted from too many directions to comprehend. Are such constantly occurring engineered events skewing global climate data overall? There can be no question about this fact.

Though it is impossible to know the full range of chemicals being used for the artificial ice nucleation of these toxic engineered storms, we know the snow is laden with toxic metals and chemicals in most cases. The elements found in lab testing match known primary elements named in numerous artificial ice nucleation for weather modification patents. Make your voice heard in this battle, help us to sound the alarm.

Roundup

By: Christina Sarich

A new correlation study published in the Journal of Organic Systems has linked glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup, to an enormous increase in chronic diseases across the United States.

Supporting countless studies before it, this new report is a detailed analysis proving an undeniable link between glyphosate-based herbicides and the rates of chronic disease all over the country.

Dr. Nancy Swanson and the President of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), Andre Leu, led the research team which proved – once again – that glyphosate and Roundup are lethal, even in small amounts.

The chemical is prevalently used on crops across the nation and world. Friends of the Earth Europe, says that more than 650,000 tonnes of glyphosate products were used over five years ago, with the amount being used increasing each year.

This increase in use is contributing to the development of diseases such as diabetes, obesity, lipoprotein metabolism disorder, Alzheimer’s, senile dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, autism, and cancer. The report details how there is a direct correlation between the incidence of these diseases and glyphosate use.

It isn’t as if the toxicity levels of glyphosate are not already known by its makers. Monsanto was refusing to release to the public lab tests conducted in St. Louis, Missouri, which gave them authority to use glyphosate in China.

This is the company that is responsible for making PCBs, DD.T and Agent Orange as well, all of which caused irreparable health damage ignored by regulators for decades.

Glyphosate-based herbicides have been identified as the next widely used chemical on a list of chemicals consumers should be aware of.

Read: 7 Nasty Effects of Pesticides

The world’s number one weed killer, Glyphosate, or N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine, is posing serious harm to humans and the environment, yet the poison developed by John E. Franz of the Monsanto Company has been allowed on the US market since the 1970s.

It isn’t just Monsanto who sells glyphosate, though. There are now over 100 different manufacturers of the product throughout the world. You can find it in other products with names such as Clearout 41.

Although glyphosate is used primarily in agricultural settings, it is also sprayed by public authorities on roads and pavements. Even managers of golf courses and home gardeners still use the toxic chemicals to control weeds.

According to the new study:

“Within the last 20 years there has been an alarming increase in serious illnesses in the US, along with a marked decrease in life expectancy (Bezruchka, 2012). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the cost of diabetes and diabetes-related treatment was approximately $116 billion dollars in 2007.

Estimated costs related to obesity were $147 billion in 2008 and cardiovascular diseases and stroke were $475.3 billion in 2009. Health care expenditures in the US totaled 2.2 trillion dollars in 2007 (CDC, 2013a). The onset of serious illness is appearing in increasingly younger cohorts. The US leads the world in the increase in deaths due to neurological diseases between 1979-81 and 2004-06 for the 55-65 age group (Pritchard et al., 2013).”

The study points out that, “these findings suggest environmental triggers rather than genetic or age-related causes,” especially since chronic diseases are showing up in younger and younger individuals.

“During this same time period, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of glyphosate applied to food crops and in the percentage of GE food crops planted (Benbrook, 2012). We undertook a study to see if correlations existed between the rise of GE crops, the associated glyphosate use and the rise in chronic disease in the US.”

The bottom line?

“The significance and strength of the correlations show that the effects of glyphosate and GE crops on human health should be further investigated.”

radioactive

Preface by: Roger Landry (TLB)

Information compiled by: Leslie Katzenmeier

Radiation is a scary word, with most who hear it conjuring up thoughts of terrible deaths such as we have seen in videos of Hiroshima or Nagasaki, but that was “in your face” radiation, by an immediate source, and reported by a government that had nothing to hide. Today we face an entirely different scenario of secrecy, lies and misdirection as a result of what may eventually be known as the most catastrophic even in human history … FUKUSHIMA.

What do we hear from the Trusted (satire) mainstream media or our government about any of what you will find in this article … Very little to nothing!

What we HAVE heard is absolute insanity such as, radiation is really not all that bad for you, or this radiation spewing from Fukushima is not dangerous and poses no threat to us or the biosphere … REALLY ???

Meanwhile the government silently raises the allowable radioactivity in the food (seafood such as tuna) that we consume regularly.

The silence or propaganda continues to flow … as the pacific ocean and land based life along the US and Canadian coast continues to die … with NO reasonable explanation from said sources.

Do they truly think us stupid, or blind?

What follows is a historical progression of information these governments don’t make available to you, but when it comes to their own, see how they react! The information is presented with an abundance of links to aid you in further educating yourself on REALITY.

Fukushima fallout on vegetation in South Florida exceeded gov’t notification limit by over 1,000% — Nearly triple the highest level reported anywhere on West Coast

Florida Power & Light Company, St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant Units 1 & 2 (St. Lucie, FL) — 2011 Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report, submitted to U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission:

BROADLEAF VEGETATION: Brazilian Pepper from location H59 — 10-20 miles S/SSE of reactors on south end of Hutchinson Island, [30 miles north of Palm Beach]

  • Iodine-131 on 22-Mar: 1,220 pCi/kg (wet weight)
  • Iodine-131 on 29-Mar: 605 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 on 06-Apr: 242 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 on 13-Apr: 136 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 on 20-Apr: 79 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 on 26-Apr: 45 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 on 03-May: 21 pCi/kg
  • Iodine-131 is “attributed to the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants event. Elevated levels of radioiodine were measured through-out the U.S.”

NRC Reporting Level for Vegetation = 100 pCi/kg (wet weight)

NRC Reporting Level: “The concentration value in an environmental sample, if exceeded, which must be reported to the NRC.”

The highest I-131 level reported in vegetation from the West Coast is 462 pCi/kg in Central California.  The March 22 South Florida sample is nearly triple that amount.

TLB: And why did the powers that be freak out in 2012 for the Democrat and Republican conventions, but fail miserably and conspicuously to show any concern for the general public, continuing the lie that all was safe … Well I would say the above segment of this article could explain this …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Emergency radiation testing used at Democrat and Republican conventions after Fukushima; Also for Obama Inauguration — Seafood, meat, vegetables, milk, water checked for nuclear waste, while top officials agree to publicly downplay crisis — 80% of milk samples by Orlando, FL had ‘significant’ Cs-137

New York State Department of Health’s Wadsworth Center, Aug. 2012 (emphasis added): The Wadsworth Center, which has already tested milk samples in preparation for the upcoming national political conventions, has now been asked to test additional samples of other foods from the sites during the conventions. In August and September, during the conventions… labs will test water, lettuce, orange juice and shrimp for radiological contamination. The labs will also be testing for… radiation in various meat products… These surveillance activities are part of the Food Emergency Response Network‘s (FERN) ongoing preparations for the Republican Convention… and the Democratic Convention… The labs will be testing foriodine-131 [Half life = 8 days], cesium-137 and other… sources of radiation. Should any contaminants be identified… laboratories across the nation could be called on to test large quantities of samples… Wadsworth’s initial role in the role in the political convention preparation exercises was to measure evidence of radioactive isotopes Iodine-131 and Cesium-137 in milk prior to the conventions.

NY Dept. of Health & Dept. of Environmental Health Sciences, Apr 30, 2014: New York State is located over 10,000 km from [Fukushima]… Yet even at this distance, our laboratory easily identified 131I and 134, 137Cs [and] was among the laboratories which received an assignment to protect food during the Democratic and Republican political conventions in the U.S. in 2012… the laboratory tested 20 milk samples from Florida. Phase II consisted of radiological food testing at the Republican National Convention held in Tampa… as well as the Democratic National Convention… [We] tested 33 samples of lettuce and meatIn addition, the laboratory was involved in radiological testing of food for the Presidential Inauguration in January, 2013… for fission products of interest: 103,106Ru, 131I, and 134,137Cs… 137Cs [was detected] in 9 out of 20 milk samples from Florida… These levels… do not pose any significant health hazard… The contribution from 137Cs in Florida milk is significant… The presence of cesium in Florida milk was found to be a remnant from nuclear fallout following atmospheric testing [Note that Florida had the highest level of radioactive material from Fukushima measured anywhere in world outside Japan].

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen interview by SolarIMG: I know someone very highly placed in the State Dept., and the US government has come up with a decision… at the highest levels… to downplay Fukushima… Hillary Clinton signed a pact… saying she agreed there are no problems with Japanese food… So we are not sampling this material as it comes into the country, because our government has made a decision to downplay it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today the government states its absolute authority to isolate and quarantine any individual even suspected of having Ebola, but states they had no authority to do the same to known individuals or cargo contaminated with radiation entering this country from Japan? How deep does the lie go …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CDC Official: “Public health emergency in the US” from Fukushima radioactive material — Gov’t wanted to quarantine people contaminated with radiation, but had no authority — Emergency Operations Center activated for first time ever due to nuclear incident

The Fukushima radiological emergency and challenges identified for future public health responses, Charles W. Miller, Chief of CDC’s Radiation Studies Branch, 2012: On 11 March 2011… a cascade of events was initiated that led to radionuclide releases causing widespread radioactive contamination… Radioactive material from Japan was subsequently transmitted to locations around the globe, including the U.S. The levels of radioactive material that arrived in the U.S. were never large enough to be a concern for health effects, but the presence of this material in the environment was enough to create a public health emergency in the U.S. The radiation safety and public health communities in the U.S. are identifying challenges they faced in responding to this incident…

Report on the 48th Annual Meeting of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) – Presentation by Charles W. Miller, Chief of CDC’s Radiation Studies Branch: The CDC activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for the first time ever for a real world radiation incident. EOC activities were even more intense than for the swine flu pandemic in 2009. Cargo and passengers from Japan headed to the U.S. were screened, and there were contaminated passengers (and cargo). However CDC (nor anyone else) has authority to quarantine passengers contaminated with radiation… Communication was a problem. At first [the “A-Team”, an advisory team for environment, food, and health comprised of personnel from EPA, CDC, USDA, and FDA] had to speak “off the record”. Also noted was that… Early PAGs were guidelines, not rules… The final point was that Fukushima was a great tragedy for Japan; it also became a public health emergency for the U.S.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TLB: So we are now aware of the extreme dangers of radioactive fallout from Fukushima … But what about US facilities? How safe are they? We have aging and soon to be retired, nuclear power and storage facilities all over this country that we are constantly being told (by government agencies tasked with our health) are safe … Nothing could be further from the truth! Please read on …

KING 5 News transcript, Nov. 20, 2014 (emphasis added): In 2002, Steve Lewis, a Hanford electrician developed burning lungs, chronic nosebleeds… [Dr. Smick] concluded it was allergies from cats or feathersnot vapors vented from the most deadly substance on earth. Did you have allergies before? “I’ve never had an allergy in my life.”… Dr. Smick left a trail of emails showing he was under pressure to keep contractors happy. In an email to his staff… he directed them to quit helping workers get help. “Please do not encourage workers to file compensation claims. We could be invited off the site if that behavior continues.”… A former medical provider that worked under Dr. Smick accused her boss of not putting patient health first, Smick responded… “Occupational medicine is not the same as other types of medicine. You have the business needs of the employer to consider.”

KING 5 News, Oct 14, 2014: Gary Sall… [worked at Hanford] for 28 years… 10 years ago… his brain function got worse and worse. Within 5 years he… could barely speak, hallucinated, and operated on the level of a 4-year-old… Doctors diagnosed him with work-related toxic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disorder… [His wife] Barb documented the suffering in a difficult to watch video taken in 2011… in a hospital bed, trembling and frightened and on a feeding tube… The DOE’s insurer wrote that not Hanford, but alcohol consumption or a B-12 deficiency could be making him sick… He died 3 years ago at the age of 57.

Barbara Sall, Hanford worker: “You totally lose everything… your memories, your mind… Everything’s gone, it’s just a shell… No one should ever see their loved one go through what he went through. It got very, very bad… Once you get sick they get rid of you, you’re no good anymore… [It's] undescribable what they’ve done to my family. They don’t care. They don’t even know we exist… Washington DC is turning its back on the fact that Hanford… is killing people.”

KING 5 News, Oct. 28, 2014 — Barbara Sall: “It is so scary, and they do nothing about it, and I don’t understand why this is still going on… They don’t think that we’re people.”

Tri City Herald, June 8, 2011: “It’s an awful way to go,” [Sall] said. “It eats your brain away. It turns you into nothing.”… “How many people… have to die before [DOE] is held accountable for what it is doing to workers?” asked Lawrence Rouse, who has the [same] disease.

Al Jazeera, Oct 14, 2014: Terry Wattenburger [age 50]… a few years back, he looked like a football player… cancer and lung disease have taken a toll… [he dropped] to 106 pounds… doctors removed his entire stomach… He struggles with… neuromuscular disorder… stomach cancer… nerve damage… “My immune system is totally compromised”… Jerry Ferson [worked] at Hanford… for nearly 30 years… medical records show… brain dysfunction… toxic encephalopathy… neurotoxicity syndrome… “his limbs are jerking all over, that’s hard for me,” said Linda Ferson, his wife. “But the mental aspect of it is the worst… He can’t remember how to turn the oven on.”… “They don’t want to take care of you,” he said. “They want you to die.”
