sun-geo-460

by TLB Contributor Dane Wigington

Climate engineering is mathematically the greatest single assault against all life ever launched by the human race. The ongoing catastrophic effects of the global atmospheric spraying and radio frequency transmissions related to geoengineering programs are so massive in scope and scale that the overall destruction and death they are inflicting is impossible to quantify. Many deadly effects of the solar radiation management operations are completely overlooked, epidemic vitamin D deficiency is in this category.

Vitamin D deficiency is linked to a very long and growing list of human degenerative disease. Immune system degeneration, neurological system disorders, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, obesity, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, and even reproductive system disorders, the list goes on and on. The paradox is this, though our bodies manufacture vitamin D from sunlight exposure, now we have altered light from the sun due to the light scattering particles that are saturating our atmosphere from solar radiation management. There are no existing studies to address this issue since the ongoing climate engineering insanity is being officially denied. Next, since Earth’s protective atmosphere is being torn apart from multiple aspects of climate engineering (sprayed ozone destroying particles and RF heating of the atmosphere), the UV radiation we are all now exposed to is at extremely dangerous levels making exposure to the sun a health threat. In addition, the extremely high UV levels may actually cause the body to shut down vitamin D production. The 12 minute video below has very important and on target data that directly addresses the vitamin D deficiency issue and the role of climate engineering in this equation. It is well worth the time to view.

A quote I borrowed: “When you are dead, you do not know you are dead, its difficult only for the others. It is the same when you are stupid! To remain stupid is a choice most seem to make.”

NOW – those of you that think the flag waving criminal cabal mind controlled people in the picture above are any different to the flag waving mind controlled people in the bottom picture – then this is for you!

Let me explain something! The people in the top picture are propaganda mind controlled slaves directed by Goebbels who was the master propagandist of the Nazi regime and dictator of German cultural life for twelve years. Joseph Goebbels was born a strict Catholic and helped direct Hitler!

The British monarchy, and the City of London’s leading Crown bankers (Khazar, Venetians – Black nobility et al), enthusiastically backed Hitler and the Nazis, bankrolled the Führer’s elections and backed their death machine industries to build the weapons with which they knew would be used to invade Europe and the rest of the world!

PJ-7-460

American Khazarian ZIONazi Banksters – those that foisted the FED down America’s throat unlawfully also backed the Third Reich!

Side Note – City of London is a Vatican enclave and foreign to England! Most British people do not know this! DC UNITED STATES Inc., militarily occupies (as in to conquer!!!) the 50 Free and Independent States and Crown Corp. under fiat rule (color of office – color of law) , UK Ltd occupies England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales! The Vatican City is foreign to Italy and DC is foreign to the United States of America and the 50 union States.

The DC UNITED STATES Corporation inc.1871 is a war power that has been militarily occupying the conquered people of the The United States of America UNION since at least 1933 and it did so by making the people part of the FOREIGN DC UNITED STATES Corp. aka FEDERAL Employees of US Inc which in effect lifted them off the land of the Free and Independent Union States. In the de jure states the people – as American National – American Freemen – had unalienable rights!

Under the FEDERAL EMPLOYEE Status as UNITED STATES Inc citizens (Corporate persons) they have in-alienable rights granted by the Corporation! Rights equivalent to that granted by Caesar! Such sub class citizens are required to license rights back from Caesar / the corporation – to breath, travel, get married, by land, practice a certain trade et al!

Of course – America was never meant to be this way! Unalienable rights are creator rights – not subservient to mans law. These are rights that you had before any government was created! The right to travel, to eat, to be left alone, to use the land to exists (use the land to provide Food / Water etc).

PJ-28-460

Now if you do not want to be a corporate slave you can vote with your feet and go back to the land on which your were born and leave the khazarian UNITED STATES Corp of 1871! That’s another story! We call this process status correction!

The above may have given you a clue that the people in the bottom of the picture are equally as confused propaganda mind controlled slaves as those that were captured in the top of the picture! It gets worse!

Those in the image waving the flag are waiving a US Corporate War Powers Flag that represents the Khazarian death cult that has planned the death of those waving the red white and blue flag and Billions more around the world! We are currently witnessing their genocidal acts of the three party state (Vatican-DC-Corp of London) death cult in the form of Fukushima – Gulf poisoning – Chemtrails – weather wars – GMO’s – 911 false flag wars etc.

PJ-6-460

The UNITED STATES war machine WAR POWERS FLAG which is rightly despised by much of the planet is at its core as Un-American as the one being waived by the mind controlled Goebels programmed slaves in the top of the picture. I say this for several reasons some of which I have explained.

For those of you that do not know it – The Organic – The Republic for the United States of America was founded on the principal of the American people being free and Independent of ANYONE– and absolutely not subservient to a Priest or a King – or a Black robbed foreign Bankruptcy Judge operating for US Inc 1871 – a corporate UNITED STATES officer – (especially the government). This is why many that came here from the old world left the old world in the first place – to no longer be under the whims and controls of MAD MEN!

Those that were running the old world! It can be concluded – at the core level – we the people created government to protect our unalienable rights (rights that can NOT BE liened away – ie licensed away). The other thing to note – was the Confederation was perpetual (forever). No act – post facto – after the fact could change this! The Declaration of Independence was also Black and White and acts by psychopaths do not change the fact that this nation was created by a people that declared themselves to be equal to all others! Not subservient to BAR attorneys or actors in DC or those in law enforcement! Government can not claim rights that people never gave it! It cant have rights superior to those that created it! The suggestion would be illogical! The point here is anything that anyone in government does that harms the people is unlawful and outside of their authority! They may do these acts by legal sophistry – but at the core the people carrying out these acts ought to know they are operating outside the authority that we have them when We the People created government to protect our unalienable rights! If the act in that government has claimed in your heart feels wrong then it is wrong!

PJ-4-460

This includes mandatory pumping poisons in to anyone – in to our air – water! Saying you cant grow food – cant take water – cant travel without a license! Cleary – these demands are actions of lunatics and mind controlled slaves! The only reason those foisting such acts on the people get away with it is because Americans no longer know who they are or what their law is! Secondly those foisting illegal laws on us have men with guns to enforce the laws today – they do not have the force of law behind them – which is why they need guns to enforce vial laws repugnant to the laws of this land!

Again, the people that forged the Declaration of Independence and the  Articles of Confederation 1781 created government for one thing and one thing only – to protect We the Peoples un-alienable rights! Please remember that important word – un-alienable. The foundational law of this new nation was and still is – what we know as the Golden rule – American – English special Equity! I’ll save that detailed discussion for another time! Essentially the law was/is – We are all equal. No one has rights you do not have. Do no harm and treat others the way you wish to be treated! The law of this nation is represented in 20 sacred and ancient maxims that you were never taught:

Maxims of Equity

1. Equity sees that as done what ought to be done
2. Equity will not suffer a wrong to be without a remedy
3. Equity delights in equality
4. One who seeks equity must do equity
5. Equity aids the vigilant, not those who slumber on their rights
6. Equity imputes an intent to fulfill an obligation
7. Equity acts in personam
8. Equity abhors a forfeiture
9. Equity does not require an idle gesture
10. He who comes into equity must come with clean hands
11. Equity delights to do justice and not by halves
12. Equity will take jurisdiction to avoid a multiplicity of suits
13. Equity follows the law
14. Equity will not aid a volunteer
15. Where equities are equal, the law will prevail
16. Between equal equities the first in order of time shall prevail
17. Equity will not complete an imperfect gift
18. Equity will not allow a statute to be used as a cloak for fraud
19. Equity will not allow a trust to fail for want of a trustee
20. Equity regards the beneficiary as the true owner

The same parasite entities that funded Hitler and that over-through the The United States of America republic from within did so through overturning our law form and dumbing down the people of this nation through gradualism so they no longer know from whence they came or who they are! This was absolutely deliberate! It would be difficult for this nation to enslaved by psychopaths if Americans really knew who they were and what their REAL laws were and what government was supposed to be and what it was NOT!

Obviously – the flag waving mind controlled slaves in the picture do not yet know the above or that they have been used their entire lives to fund a NWO and played by the same parasite entities that once funded and guided Hitler and the Bolshevik revolution – that it is the Corporation of London Khazarian Banksters, and other similar placed parasite psychopathic entities like the criminal cabal agencies situated in the District of Criminals that are guided by shadow government – to destroy America and all its stands for – that is the CFR, TLC, Bilderbergers, Tavistock Committee, Tax Exempt Foundations CIA et al!

PJ-26-460

The mind controlled slaves in the picture do not any longer know their true history or what that flag is that they are waving or what it truly represents! They do not know it is actually a symbol of their oppression and ignorance and represents the foreign power that over-through the American republic from within while the American people were being distracted by materialism and media propaganda!

The Century of the Self

Mind controlled Americans have not yet realized that one part of the mind control machine that engineered the dumbing down of America is Religion – guided through American offshoots of the Vatican!

Evidence of this can be found in the Secret Treaties of Verona

Excerpt:

ARTICLE 1.   The high contracting powers being convinced that the system of representative government is equally as incompatible with the monarchial principles as the maxim of the sovereignty of   the people with the high divine right, engage mutually in the most solemn manner, to use all their efforts to put an end to the system of representative governments, in whatever country it may exist in Europe, and to prevent its being introduced in those countries where it is not yet known.

ARTICLE 2.   As it can not be doubted that the liberty of the press is the most powerful means used by the pretended supporters of the rights of nations to the detriment of   those princes, the high contracting parties promise reciprocally to adopt all proper measures to suppress it, not only in their own states but also in the rest of Europe.

ARTICLE. 3.   Convinced that the principles of religion contribute most powerfully to keep nations in the state of passive obedience which they owe to their princes, the high contracting parties declare it to be their intention to  sustain in their respective States those measures which the clergy may adopt, with the aim of ameliorating their own interests, so intimately connected with the preservation of the authority of the princes ; and the contracting powers join in offering their thanks to the Pope for what he has already done for them, and solicit his constant cooperation in their views of submitting the nations.

Re-ligio-n (re-ligio – to rebind in to bondage) is part of the mind control system used to distract the American people and direct them in to false beliefs while the parasite entities running America destroyed America from within! It was a masterful plan and a scan across America demonstrates the success of the plan to use big box religion to fool the masses and have them focus on things that matter not while the people of this nation were utterly enslaved and feasted on by their foreign conquerors without a shot being fired!

The absolute main institution behind the over-through of the American republic from day one was the CROWN Corporation of London which controls the American legal system through the Crown BAR Franchise! The BAR is the British Accredited Registry which is the revenue collector under the exchequer of the CROWN Corporation of London!

PJ-38-460

All attorneys in America are in fact waring against the organic laws of this land according the still standing Original 13th amendment of this nation which BANS anyone in a public office from having an oath to a foreign nation or trans national organization!

http://www.kairosiea.org/the-original-still-standing–13t-amendment.html

Of course the BAR parasites have gotten around this law because they do not any longer represent the Original republic – but the imposter DC UNITED STATES corporation. This being not too dissimilar from Mc Donald’s simply operating and pretending to be the government of the original United States! Yes – that’s right – the actors in DC are a private mutual corporation pretending to be government! The actors  have as much right to control you and make laws over you as a hamburger flipper at McD’s! Do not challenge them on this though – the mind controlled actors have been told they are GOD’s and they carry guns and tazers! Now these private corporation spurned off other corporations that also think they are government and they are GODS on the land! You know these Private Corporations as CALIFORNIA Inc., ABC POLICE Inc., ABC SHERIFF Inc., DHS, Inc., FEMA, Inc. et al! Are you getting the picture – they are just private corporation pretending to be government with as much authority as hamburger flippers!  It is these hamburger flippers that have decided they will drop bio-chemical weaponized pollutants on you – that you cant collect water – that your children must be vaccinated! That they want 1,000,000 acres of your state et al!  Are you getting the picture – EVERY government entity – STATE, CITY, TOWN is a privatized corporation like Mc D’s that has no lawful authority to exist under the foundational laws of this nation! Everything is FIAT and operating under color of office and color of law and created through TREASON and FRAUD!

The BAR institution was the vehicle to introduce these frauds and it has been used to overturn American Organic Law form and subject Americans to the whims of a foreign judicial system COMPLETELY controlled by the Crown Corporation of London/International Bankers and repugnant to the founding laws of this nation! The same has taken place in all nations now under this system since their nations were bankrupted under the International Bankstas!

The 20 maxims of LAW above have been replaced by 66,000,000 rules and codes pretending to be LAW – each designed by the BAR  actors to tax you and extract your life energy in the form of FRN’s – that is military debt script! Not lawful money according to the foundational laws of this nation!

This fraudulent system foisted in Americans by BAR attorneys in FOREIGN BAR controlled administrative tribunals pretending to be American courts is the primary mechanism relied on by the ACTORS to TURN Americans off their land and from their property! Note that the 20,000,000 fraud closures perfected on Americans by the Rothschild’s Bankstas and BAR attorneys are all perfected on the basis that Americans can’t own anything since March 9th 1933 and the US Corp owns EVERYTHING! That is because the name that you hold stuff in was created by the US Corp actors! Of course – its all fraud for there was no TRUE disclosure or meeting of the minds which are the principles of an lawful common law contract!

The word Attorney comes from the French Word. Attorn – to turn! Meaning to turn ones rights / property away from another! Since an attorney works for the STATE – the court – he is job is to get property turned back to the state!  In the case of America – the State is fraudulently in receivership to the receivers of the US Bankruptcy! So all Court cases – excepting those in private special equity – are processed to turn property back to the state! All cases are further bonded / securitized – you never here about this but this is where the real money is made in the Court system! You can read more about this here!

CRIS, stands for Court Registered Investment System. This is the accounting system used by the Judicial Branch who mis-allocate justice, in the interest of continuing the transfer of wealth from the defendants (that would be actual people, most of the time) to their bank accounts. All cases and documents are Collateralized and securitized? Securitization of a legal case, happens when Judges attach a monetary judgement, or a penalty to a case, and then hold the defendant as the collateral, until the promised amount shows up in the account of the Judicial Branch. All state systems, and local municipalities have financial ties to CRIS…that is one of the ways to keep the rabble in line (Rabble = those who believe in their unalienable rights). Usually, the penal sums is done by attachment of a bond, to a prisoner or a judgement.

The county, municipality or agency then profers that bond into the bond market, guaranteed by the taxpayers, but promising a nice rate of return. The prisoner is held as the surety, until the bond reaches maturity. The Bonds are indexed under a system known as CUSIP, C.U.S.I.P. You can look it up online.  Of course, if you ask a BAR attorney or judge, this injustice has never happened in any court, because Judges take an oath to support the constitution, and they actually allow that constitution into their courtroom… right…

PJ-17-460

The entire legal system in America from end to end is the 2nd biggest fraud perfected on a nation! The 1st being the theft of lawful money by the FEDERAL RESERVE system!

In the case of the US  Court system all property is turned over to the Crown (Receivers) controlled State for the Bankruptcy receiver of the Bankrupt UNITED STATES Corporation of 1871! Note the REAL estate – means kings estate – property is being turned back to the Crown!  All titles to land are what is know as legal title! In reality – Equitable claims are still held by the living men and women that live on the land – the courts however will not recognize such claims for they can not see the living – as insane as this reality is in this day and age! We literally have mad men running the judiciary and every aspect of the 50 Free and Independent states~!

As a result of this over-through of America from within – AMERICANS do not OWN ANYTHING today! Americans are debt slaves – landless peasant’s with-out any rights according to the rules and codes foisted on Americans unknowingly since the Act of 1871 by the BAR in subsequent years! Those of you that have been through a Fraud closure or custody battle will recognize what I am implying here! If you happen to wake up through your case you will find the system will do its utmost to alienate you further and steal your stuff at a ferocious pace!

So – for those of you that still think that the flag in the bottom picture represents the land of the Free and the Brave – now you know it does not – it represents the land of the Fee and the Slave, the indoctrinated and mind controlled!
The people of America no longer know what the foundational laws of this nation ARE – of course this is by design!

The dumbing down of American

Charlotte Iserbyt – The Secret History of Western Education (Full Documentary)

Most Americans can tell us what Kim k was wearing on the red carpet last week but they know nothing of the foundational aspects of America! This is of course by design! The entire US based Khazarian – jewish controlled entertainment, Music and Sports industries are an absolute integral part of keeping America distracted and DUMB! The TV is a mind control tool and the garbage that is perpetuated through it is called programming for good reason!

Americans for the most part have no idea what it means to be free under the Organic laws of this nation! They do not know that everyone living here, including parents, grand parents have been the victims of a military occupation their entire lives and the subject of an all encompassing Mind Control program of the most sophisticated kind from cradle to grave! Because nobody told American the truth about ANYTHING them they do not know much beyond what they have been programmed and indoctrinated to know! This is why America is ranked at the bottom in most international educational studies!

PJ-11-460

Americans – up until now – have simply believed everything the talking heads from DC and their news anchors told them! They have listened to what they were told by the UNITED STATES NWO propaganda machine and have accepted it – just like those under Goebels did! They are told they are free and therefore they think they are! This ended with the Internet! A new generation has grown up recognizing at the get go that something was wrong! They never trusted the TV – they grew up on the internet and they trust for the most part what they can discover for themselves! The facade of US propaganda lies is eroding at a rapid rate – not only in America but around the world! The NWO will be defeated by the truth and knowledge!

What about that flag the people in the bottom picture are waving! Are the flag waivers as confused by that flag as those in the top picture! YES! They were not taught that it is a version of the East India Corporation flag which enslaved half of the planet for the Vatican CROWN Corporation since 1600 – aka Corporation of London!

The East India company morphed from the East India Corporation Crown Stock company to assuming control of America as a municipal corporation and it operates as the Crown North American Slave plantation, for the benefit of the receivers of the UNITED STATES municipal corporation of 1871! Please google: East India Corporation Flag on Google Images.

http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread1070601/pg1

So what is the connection? Leopold V, Duke of Austria, 1177 AD; The Holy Roman Empire / Austria -> Great Britain / East India company -> United States of America

The House of Hanover is a German royal dynasty which has ruled the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg, the Kingdom of Hanover, *the Kingdom of Great Britain*, the Kingdom of Ireland and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

All Western countries – are in fact privatized corporations under the CROWN Corp. now owned and operated by the Khazarian NWO mafia – what historically was known as the monopolistic money powers – they own the DC US Corp of 1871 through a bankruptcy action of 1933 – all created on fraud over fraud. The UNITED STATES private municipal corporation receivers are unlawfully ruling over TUSA since 1871 through fiat – color of office and color of law – more fraud, lies and deceit! Americans are party to this con by DECEIT and lies and can step out of it with out every firing a bullet. They simply need to attain the knowledge and elect to be part of another system! This is the equivalent to finding your parents pledged you to party to a Gym club when you were young and now you have come of age you now wish to cancel your membership and join another club! As absurd as it sounds – everyone is in the US Private municipal corporate system voluntarily because our parents unknowingly through filing of a birth certificate which pledged the infant to the US Corporation! Talk about an insane act of fraud!  No disclosure – no meeting of the minds – et al! Such are the people we are dealing with!

The CROWN agents (Vatican Bankers: Rothschild’s/their agents et al ) took over the US banking system in 1913, the US Corporation in 1933, they overturned our courts in 1938 to operate on FOREIGN ROMAN CIVIL LAW repugnant to the organic founding laws of this nation! The BAR was inserted gradually from the late 1800’s and in to California with out any Corporate Constitutional amendment in 1919 – all in absolute violation of even the standing corporate rules of that time. All US courts Administrative tribunals are illegal and unlawful as concluded by a federal court judge recently – note this goes back to the new deal – which was not such a good deal for the American people as they were lead to believe. FDR being the ultimate traitor of the American people and the one that has enslaved generations for a foreign criminal power:

The Foreign criminal controlled ZIONazi US Inc. runs the Foreign US military (N.W.O. military) which is NOT IN ANY WAY AN AMERICAN MILITARY. It DOES NOT SERVE AMERICA and has not since the 1860’s. If you think it does – ask yourself – why does America really need 900+ military bases around the world to protect the American peoples unalienable rights??? That was the sole  role of government and why it was created PERIOD. – to protect our unalienable rights! Not overthrow the planet for parasites and psychopaths!

So the flag waiving people are waving the Flag of the foreign Crown Corp controlled US inc. which is a de facto government (by force – not by right or of law) corporation FOREIGN to the Organic The United States of America and the Free and Independent states and it has enslaved hundreds of Millions of American people since 1933 and subjected the world to untold death and destruction since 1871. Since 1933 it has subjected the planet to a debt ponzi scheme for the benefit of perhaps 300 Private families that run the planet today!
Do you still want to waive that Crown Corporation Stock Company flag!

Contrary to all the lies you have been fed – The UNITED STATES Corp has been up to one thing and one thing only – killing poor people around the planet so the khazarian mafia bankers can steal their stuff and put those that survived their invasion in to the Rothschildia debt slavery system perfected on Americans since 1933!

The UNITED STATES military exists to expand their NWO for the international bankstas and build a slave system to imprison you and I and ultimately – now they have almost achieved at their end goal – foisting everyone under the debt slavery system  – to liquidate you and I (terminate)!

It appears that the shadow government have now decided that they can not accommodate an educated population awaken to their scam and lies so it’s better now for them to kill off the population in Quiet Wars and start again with indoctrinated young people! This is what is perpetuating the Genocidal acts we see going on around us and why Monsanto wants to feed America GMO’s, vaccines et al!

Here is the truth on vaccines and why alternative wellness specialists have been dropping.

Did you know about the CANCER ACT 1939?

 

PJ-13-460

The foreign UNITED STATES cabal enslaved every American on March 9th 1933 in to a debt slavery and then expanded the same scheme across the entire planet since then! Cuba, Iran and Syria are the last to be forced in to the fold!

Time to wake up America! Please – for the benefit of you and yours – UNLEARN and pass this information forward!

The NWO = The Vatican + DC US Corp + Corp of London + other Parasite de facto entities + likes of CFR, TLC, CIA, Bilderbergers et al and Black nobility (aka shadow government).

Still Don’t Believe In The New World Order?

What is happening in Palestine and America by brainwashed IDF and so called US law (code) enforcement is not an anomaly. It is a window into a sure future that will face all of us should we fail to arrest the fascist forces creating the NWO and destroying our world around us under the pretense that Government is making us all safer and keeping us safe from the Monsters that they have created. Government terrorist events are hints of a dystopian, militarized world that is being prepared for all of us, a world with vast disparities of income and draconian systems of internal security and endless tyranny and abuse of power. These are the markers of a global POLICE STATE organized by the khazarian – cabal directed: Corporation of London – DC Military Industrial Complex and puppet regimes – Rothschilds criminal khazarian banking empire that controls the same entities. The Crown Corporation of London, District of Criminals UNITED STATES Corp. and Rothschildia aka Israel. There will be no freedom for America or its people! Palestine is the model we will follow if we do not stop the obvious threat to our peace and security! There will be no peace or freedom and independence for any nation locked down in internal plantation colonies and terrorized by indiscriminate cabal driven state and police violence! We either accept the police state or we destroy Rothschildia fascism and the parasite system that sustains it which is the global ponzi military debt slavery system. We can do so simply by voting with our feet to no longer support it! Think about that as you unlearn! The beginning is near!

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

The purpose of this article is to take existing on-the-ground-evidence and see what consistent theme emanates from this evidence. The United States military is following two parallel paths, the establishment of martial law preparations and following a path of extreme combat readiness. What is not quite as clear with regard to combat readiness, is the readiness about civil war preparations, a coming world war, or both? Before I present today’s information related to these topics, I would first like to digress in the following section of this paper in order to demonstrate, in a general fashion, how I form conclusions and what motivates me to investigate certain issues over others. Finally, the question will be answered as whether we are more in war mode or martial law mode with regard to Jade Helm.

No Shortage of Tips

People often ask me how I make the decisions on what to cover and how I connect the dots. Some have told me that I have the rare ability to connect dots and come to coherent connections which reveals the true nature related to some set of circumstances. How do I do it? I cheat!  Actually, I use the research and statistical strategies that I have been trained in to make these connections.

Please allow me to say that there are no absolute foolproof methods of analysis. However, there are tried and true methods that when consistently employed can yield much quicker and better analyses than random chance guessing which is what I see a lot of on many sites.

Briefly, here are two examples, derived from a plethora of strategies, of how I use my training to form conclusions and then make near-term projections based upon the data. Using these strategies connected to probability modeling, I am right far more than I am wrong, because I follow the pattern of odds once that pattern begins to emerge in a data set.

Briefly, I often follow two strategies when sifting through large amounts of data being sent to me. One qualitative strategy that I employ is to make conclusions regarding the consistent themes of the data is to create a computerized raw frequency count along with subject specific subcategories regarding preprogrammed variables as benchmarks for analysis. This enables me to find patterns that the average person, not privy to the data, would miss.  I also use a computer based statistical analysis program which correlates variables I program into the analysis. This allows me to narrow down related variables very quickly and this also allows me to ignore “the noise”. I am also able to avoid most the Disinfo trolls deception strategies by following my methods and the deception is easy to pick out because the deception pattern is not consistent or tied to other variables (e.g. correlation analysis). I am amazed how unsophisticated most trolls are.

I get lots of practice employing statistical and research based strategies to from conclusive patterns because I often receive several hundred emails per day. Over half of these emails are providing what the sender believes is direct evidence of some nefarious activity by representatives of the present administration. There is so much to choose from, it can often be difficult to even know where to start. By employing a number of research based strategies with various data-mining techniques, both email and Internet traffic can be scanned for consistencies and it is a simple and quick process if one knows how to copy and paste and properly program the search parameters.

Now that I have provided a simple and very brief glimpse into data analysis, here is an example of representative communications which follow patterns worthy of notation.

Combat Readiness vs. Martial Law

The following communication from Idaho is so very typical of what is going on all over this country. In fact, this email, along with the accompanying pictures is typical of the most commonly observed military preparations going on all across the country. In fact, the data counts tell me that the military is far more concerned, at least in the short-term, about combat preparations than they are martial law preparations. The following typical email comes from a person who calls himself “Beach83″.

Dave ,
This train (one of many) left Pocatello about 1:30 PM today.   Going south
I am sending only a few pics as I don’t want to overwhelm your system.  Pics include M-109 155mm Howitzers which many would think are tanks, M1 Abrams tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles, Humvees, ambulances, numerous trucks with unusual equipment on trailors, large potable water stations, conex conatiners, armored units which could be c/c (command / control- but doubtful as they are not tracted or wheeled).  No vehicle bumber numbers for unit designation but all marked US Army- to include the conex containers.  Resembles an A/C unit (armored cavalry) and not straight armor, more probably for a field depot.  The large water storage tanks were the first I have seen and not designed to be moved often.

Dave,
In the last email I neglected to mention there were at least 3 M88 VCRs (Vehicle Tracted Recovery)  These monster have 1,200 HP and can pull three tanks at 30 mph.  They can also lift a pack (engine and transmission) out of a tank and replace it in 20 minutes with a really good crew.

These tanks are for combat much more than they are for martial law. This is a common theme in terms of what I am being sent. For all of these photos, blow them up on your computer, the details are very revealing.

idaho-troop-train-convoy-medical-truck-2

Note the plans for mass casualties with regard to the accompanying medical military vehicles. These vehicles could be used in either martial law or combat. However, because these vehicles are accompanied by combat equipment, it tells us that the expected casualties are going to come from civil war/combat operations. And the combat operations are more than likely domestic. If this was an anticipated foreign war event, these convoys would have distinct patterns of reaching ocean port distribution centers. The data I receive does not support this conclusion. These are domestic war preparations.

idaho-troop-train-convoy-prison-detention

These structures are not command and control for a variety of reasons. They are portable detention centers. Certainly we could say that these are portable and temporary FEMA camps. That would be an incorrect statement. These structures are being shipped with combat equipment. These structures are more than likely for prisoners of war. Before you write to me with your expert opinions and expose your inexperience and ignorance because of the novelty of these structures, please know that I have run this by my best sources and these are new and the belief is that they will be used to transport prisoners to POW camps. Prisoners could eventually be moved by train inside of these more secure structures than transporting them by a less secure set of box cars.

Conclusion

Based solely on the recorded data sent to me by Americans all across the country, the odds favor that Jade Helm is much more about war preparations than it is martial law activity based upon an analysis of all recorded material submitted to The Common Sense Show. However, it would be a profound mistake to conclude that Jade Helm is not about martial law implementation, it clearly is. Yet, the data clearly shows that Jade Helm is much more about combat.

In statistical analysis, there is a technique employed to tell the researcher when their data conclusions are complete and how much of their data conclusions are due to chance. This is called “level of significance” testing. The industry standard in research is to reach have a level of significance which is less than .05 before making probability projections. The expression in research looks like this:

This means that the data has less than a 5% chance of being due to chance. Remember, in science and statistics, we never prove anything. We only provide the probability that something is true. And in the case of Jade Helm, the data tells me that the command structure of the military is much more about war than martial law.

Are we building more towards civil war (e.g. the Army vs. DHS) or are we preparing to be invaded (e.g. Red Dawn scenario)? I am working on this problem. My impression from what I am getting is that it could be both because the data is running neck and neck. However, more analysis is needed.

In a diversion, mainstream media has successfully placed the nation’s focus on events taking place in the Middle East, while speaking very little of the tensions currently boiling over in Eastern Europe. On occasion, you may hear of a NATO military exercise taking place and while the claim is that drills such as these are routine, a detailed look at the placement and numbers show that it is anything but that.

Since Russia’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, which took place early last year, the West has invoked a set of crippling sanctions designed to cause damage to the Russian economy, in an attempt to force Putin to reconsider his actions in Eastern Ukraine. Though these sanctions, in combination with lower gas prices, did deal a crippling blow to the Russian economy, the Kremlin has shown little intent on standing down from its imperialistic agenda.

Concurrently, most of which has taken place more recently, are a series of NATO exercises unfolding in the region. Some of these exercises are said to be intended to demonstrate a show of force against the Russian Federation, while others are referred to as being merely “routine”. The latest drill taking place in Ukraine, which is the largest in history ever to be hosted there, is also said not to be related to the current political crisis between Russia and the West, but most of us can read between the lines and see this for what it is.

However, when one stands back and takes a closer look at the overall picture, these exercises are appearing to look more and more like a strategic military buildup on Russia’s border. It’s possible that these drills are not only designed to test NATO’s response time, but they could also be acting as a secretive means of moving our forces into well-placed strategic positions, and these are just the ones we know about.

Russia of course, is also guilty of carrying out such mobilizations. Last year, tens of thousands of Russian soldiers were massed along the border with Ukraine. At the time, the West considered this a preempt to invasion, but like NATO, Russia referred to this buildup as just an exercise.

The West is clearly deep into this game now, mobilizing thousands of troops under the same guise that Russia took advantage of last year. The map below displays the location of where some of these drills have been taking place, but it does not include all of them, such as the ones in the Nordic States, Moldova or the latest military operation being conducted in Ukraine.

buildup

Considering this, it’s no wonder that the Kremlin shouldn’t feel threatened by such a show of force, even if it was brought on by Russia’s own actions. In fact, in North West Poland, NATO is
conducting land and maritime exercises within just miles of a military outpost in Kaliningrad, which is an enclave of Russian territory.

As we can see, the forces that continue to build up as this article is being written, are clearly massing along the Russian border. Whether it be for the purpose of discouraging aggression from Russia, or other reasons, NATO is placing troops, heavy weapons and aircraft in position, in event that a war should break out between the two. As tensions continue to rise, so will this new European military buildup of raw power.

In a situation such as this, even the slightest miscalculation regarding the other side’s intentions, could result in extremely dangerous consquences.

War is not point less 466x300

FREEMANSPERSPECTIVE

People often say that war is pointless, and it must be admitted that their argument is a good one:

What was gained in Iraq and Afghanistan? Things there are just as bad today as when the Western armies rolled in. And the threat to the West seems no less. To what end were all those people killed, mutilated, and terrorized?

What was the point of all the kingdom-versus-kingdom wars? Borders shifted left; borders shifted right; but the daily lives of the farmers, bakers, and traders mostly went back to normal after all the death.

And so on.

Even in the case of World War II – our best “wild man must be stopped” scenario – the facts don’t actually bear out the effectiveness of war. Yes, I’m very glad that Hitler was stopped (had I been there, I might have undertaken to kill him myself), but in full honesty, we must also admit that while the war stopped Hitler, it also made the world safe for Stalin, who went on to kill more people than Hitler ever did.

And without Stalin and a strong USSR, would Pol Pot have been able to kill a fourth of the population of Cambodia? Would Mao have been able to rack up the greatest death toll in human history… as much as Stalin and Hitler combined?

So, even in our very best scenario, a good argument can be made for war’s pointlessness.

But alas, I am drifting from my title subject, where I maintain that war is not pointless.

The Ruler and the “Poor Slob”

One of the more instructive quotes on war comes from Hermann Göring, a key member of Hitler’s inner circle. Notice the distinction he makes between the people and the leaders.

Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood.

But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a parliament or a communist dictatorship.

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

This explains why we so often see war as pointless: We’re looking at it from the vantage point of the poor slob, not from the vantage point of the ruler.

So, the truth is that war is not pointless… it’s only pointless from the standpoint of the poor slob who has to suffer and die in it.

For the ruler, war has a clear and compelling purpose: it gets rid of competitors.

States fight. That is as accurate as any statement of history that can be found. It was true 6,000 years ago and it is true now. Conflict is part of the core nature of states; they compete like animals over limited territories. Thus, war serves them.

Individuals can fight too, of course, but ask yourself this: Among the 200 or so human beings who live closest to you, how many fistfights have you seen over the last few years?

On the other hand, among the 200 or so states on this planet, several dozen have had wars over the last few years. Doesn’t that say something about the nature of states versus the nature of individuals?

The Other Reason

But it’s not just because of their perpetual competition that war has a purpose for state leaders. They also need it for upholding their legitimacy.

As we mentioned two weeks ago, every state rests on legitimacy: the belief that is it right for the state to take money by force, to punish those who disobey them, and to send children to die in wars.

If people ever stopped believing these things – if they stopped holding them as legitimate – the state itself would fail.

So, the other purpose of war is to uphold the legitimacy of the state.

One way to uphold state legitimacy is simply to work the perennial human weakness, fear. Thus, we have our modern “war on terror,” including this year’s new bogeyman, ISIS. The terror of monsters works for legitimacy, because scary monsters require something equally big and scary to stop them… and that necessary thing is a warfare state.

Interestingly enough, war is especially important for legitimacy just now, since “forever prosperity for all” isn’t working and the less-favored classes remain compliant only because they’re bought off with free food. So, war is one of the few things that still uphold the state’s legitimacy.

Curtailing war would help the economic situation, of course. But that would also remove the bands that tie millions of people to the state for emotional comfort. (See here for an explanation.) So, pulling back on war would probably be a net loss to legitimacy.

This is especially important to the state, because once legitimacy breaks, it’s hard to get it back. Following the Vietnam War, for example, “Team America Always Wins!” stopped selling and didn’t come all the way back for decades. So, with “forever prosperity for all” failing, war remains essential to state legitimacy.

So…

My point in this article is that war tends to be pointless for the average person, but it’s definitely not pointless for their rulers. It is, to quote an old phrase, “the health of the state.”

So, when does war end? I’ll close by letting Albert Einstein answer that question for us:

Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.

That might be a good topic to discuss with friends and neighbors.

The United Kingdom has gone batshit crazy. There’s simply no other way to put it. I warned about Britain’s “war on toddler terrorists” earlier this year in the post: The War on Toddler Terrorists – Britain Wants to Force Nursery School Teachers to Identify “Extremist” Children. Here’s an excerpt:

Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government.

The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation document issued by the Home Office in a bid to bolster its Prevent anti-terrorism plan.

The document accompanies the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, currently before parliament. It identifies nurseries and early years childcare providers, along with schools and universities, as having a duty “to prevent people being drawn into terrorism”.

Never fear good citizens of Great Britain. While your government actively does everything in its power to protect criminal financial oligarchs and powerful pedophiles, her majesty draws the line at toddler thought crime. We learn from the Independent:

A three-year-old child from London is one of hundreds of young people in the capital who have been tipped as potential future radicals and extremists. 

As reported by the Evening Standard, 1,069 people have been put in the government’s anti-extremism ‘Channel’ process, the de-radicalization program at the heart of the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy.

The three-year-old in the program is from the borough of Tower Hamlets, and was a member of a family group that had been showing suspect behavior.

Since September 2014, 400 under 18s, including teenagers and children, have been referred to the scheme. 

The fact that this story broke on the same day that chairman of the UK’s Lords Privileges and Conduct Committee, Lord John Sewel, was caught on video snorting cocaine off the breast of a prostitute with a £5 note, is simply priceless. You just can’t make this stuff up.

From the BBC:

Lord Sewel is facing a police inquiry after quitting as House of Lords deputy speaker over a video allegedly showing him taking drugs with prostitutes.

The footage showed him snorting powder from a woman’s breasts with a £5 note.

In the footage, Lord Sewel, who is married, also discusses the Lords’ allowances system.

As chairman of committees, the crossbench peer also chaired the privileges and conduct committee, and was responsible for enforcing standards in the Lords.

Lord Sewel served as a minister in the Scotland office under Tony Blair’s Labour government.

Tony Blair, why am I not surprised:

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 11.48.13 AM

He has been a member of the Lords since 1996, and is a former senior vice principal of the University of Aberdeen.

Here’s a clip, in the event you’re interested:

The UK government is so far gone that it insists on protecting the public from toddlers, rather than protecting toddlers from powerful sexual predators. In case you need a reminder:

In Great Britain, Powerful Pedophiles are Seemingly Everywhere and Totally Above the Law

Citizens of the U.S. are being denied the right to know what they are feeding their families. Despite the fact that 90 percent of American citizens want GMO labeling on their food, big business is doing everything it can to prevent people from accessing their rights. Representative Pompeo’s bill, popularly known as theDARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know), has been written almost entirely by the biotech industry lobby. While American citizens are advocating for their rights to knowledge and healthy, affordable food, Monsanto’s legal team is busy on every legislative level trying to prevent this from happening.

Monsanto’s subversion of democratic legal processes is not new. In fact, it is their modus operandi, be it the subversion of LA’s decision to be GMO free by amending the California Seed Law—equating corporations with persons and making seed libraries and exchange of seed beyond 3 miles illegal—or suing Maui County for passing a law banning GMOs.

Decades before there was a “debate” over GMOs and Monsanto’s PR and law firms became the busiest of bees, India was introduced to this corrupting, corporate giant that had no respect for the laws of the land. When this massive company did speak of laws, these laws had been framed, essentially, by their own lawyers.

Today, Indian cotton farmers are facing a genocide that has resulted in the death of at least 300,000 of their brothers and sisters between 1995 and 2013, averaging 14,462 per year (1995-2000) and 16,743 per year (2001-2011). This epidemic began in the cotton belt, in Maharashtra, where 53,818 farmers have taken their lives. Monsanto, on it’s own website, admits that pink bollworm “resistance [to Bt] is natural and expected” and that the resistance to Bt “posed a significant threat to the nearly 5 million farmers who were planting the product in India.” Eighty four percent of the farmer suicides have been attributed to Monsanto’s Bt Cotton, placing the corporation’s greed and lawlessness at the heart of India’s agrarian crisis.

There are three outright illegalities to Monsanto’s existence in India.

First, Monsanto undemocratically imposed the false idea of “manufacturing” and “inventing” a seed, undermining robust Indian laws—that do not allow patents on life—and by taking patents on life through international trade law. Since 1999, Monsanto has had the U.S. government do its dirty work, blocking the mandatory review of the Monsanto Law in TRIPS (the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights Agreement implemented through the WTO).

Second, since they do not have a patent for Bt-Cotton, Monsanto’s collection of royalties as “trait value” or as a “fee for technology traits” (IPR category that does not exist in any legal framework and was concocted by Monsanto lawyers to work outside of the laws of the land) is illegal. These illegal royalty collections have been collected from the most marginal farmers, pushing them to take their own lives.

Third, the smuggling of a controlled substance without approvals (and thus Monsanto’s very entry into India) is a violation and subversion of India’s Biosafety Regulations. This includes the illegal introduction of GMOs into the food system in India, which poses grave risks to the health of ordinary Indian citizens.

Illegal entry of Bt Cotton into India

The Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC), the apex body constituted in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, is solely entrusted with the responsibility of approving field trials of any genetically modified organisms (GMOs). India’s biosafety framework—one of the strongest in the world—is  governed by The Rules for the Manufacture, Use, Import, Export and Storage of Hazardous Micro Organisms, Genetically Engineered Organisms or Cells (notified under the Environment Protection Act, 1986).

ARTICLE (7) OF THE RULES STIPULATES:

APPROVAL AND PROHIBITIONS ETC.

(1) NO PERSON SHALL IMPORT, EXPORT, TRANSPORT, MANUFACTURE, PROCESS, USE OR SELL ANY HAZARDOUS MICROORGANISMS OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ORGANISMS/SUBSTANCES OR CELLS EXCEPT WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE GENETIC ENGINEERING APPROVAL COMMITTEE.

On 10 March 1995, MAHYCO (which became Monsanto-Mahyco in 1998) imported 100 grams of cottonseed that contained the MON531-Bt Gene into India without approval from the GEAC. MAHYCO, under undisclosed circumstances, had obtained permission from the RCGM (Review Committee of Genetic Manipulation under the Department of Biotechnology (DBT)), which does not have the authority to approve such an import. Without the approval of the governing body responsible for the approval of the import (GEAC) Monsanto had smuggled a controlled substance into India.

ARTICLE (4) OF THE RULES STIPULATES:

(4) GENETIC ENGINEERING APPROVAL COMMITTEE (GEAC)

THIS COMMITTEE SHALL FUNCTION AS A BODY UNDER THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENT FORESTS AND WILDLIFE FOR APPROVAL OF ACTIVITIES INVOLVING LARGE SCALE USE OF HAZARDOUS MICROORGANISMS AND RECOMBINANTS IN RESEARCH AND INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL ANGLE. THE COMMITTEE SHALL ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR APPROVAL OF PROPOSALS RELATING TO RELEASE OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ORGANISMS AND PRODUCTS INTO THE ENVIRONMENT.

Open field trials are a deliberate release of GMOs into the environment and, under the above Indian law, require approval by the GEAC. Eager to get to market and establish a monopoly in the cotton sector of India in 1998, Monsanto-Mahyco, without the approval of the sole agency allowed to grant permission for open field trials—the GEAC—started large scale, multi-centric, open field trials of Bt Cotton in 40 locations spread across nine states of India.

The eventual clearance, long after the commencement of these field trials, came once again from the Review Committee of Genetic Manipulation (RCGM), which is not authorized to grant clearance for field trials. RCGM’s mandate is restricted to guidelines for lab research. Without approval from the GEAC, Monsanto’s open field trials of Bt Cotton in 1998 were blatantly illegal and an act of biological warfare against India through genetic pollution.

Furthermore, no post harvest management and safety was ensured in these trials by Monsanto-Mahyco. Monsanto was not concerned with the findings of the trials at all; they just wanted GM seeds to be introduced into Indian soil and they did so without due process. GMO traits, once released into the environment, cannot be contained or recalled. In fact, genetically engineered cotton was sold in open markets. In some states, the trial fields were replanted the very next season with crops including wheat, turmeric, and groundnut, violating Para-9 on “Post harvest handling of the transgenic plants” of the Biosafety Guidelines (1994), according to which,the fields on which GMO trials were conducted should be left fallow for at least one year.

It was in the face of these violations of Indian laws and the risks of genetic pollution India faced, that the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE) filed a petition in the Supreme Court of India in 1999 against Monsanto and MAHYCO. Clearly, Monsanto and MAHYCO had violated the 1989 rules for the use of GMOs under the Environmental Protection Act (1986). The government had allowed Monsanto to carry out field trials without the mandatory scientific biosafety tests.

Without waiting for the outcome of the petition pending in the Supreme Court—around President Bill Clinton’s visit to India—in March 2000 the Department of Biotechnology gave biosafety clearance to Monsanto’s Bt Cotton and in July 2000 the GEAC cleared large-scale field trials of Bt Cotton despite the pending Supreme Court case. This was two years after Monsanto first started illegal trials. CD Mayee, Co-Chairman of the GEAC, also became the first Indian board member of ISAAA, a biotech evangelist group, in 2006. He is the chairman of the sub-committee on Bt Cotton of the GEAC and interestingly, also sits of on the Agriculture Ministry’s Committee on Endosulfan, an insecticide with acute neurotoxin properties developed by Bayer CropScience, which is a major funder—along with Monsanto—of ISAAA.

Monsanto Bt Cotton seeds had not yet been cleared for commercial release. While the RFSTE case against Monsanto was still in the Supreme Court of India, Monsanto reported to the GEAC, in 2001, that Navbharat Seeds Pvt. Ltd., a company in Gujarat, was selling Navbharat 151 seeds, which had the MON531 Bt gene. This was not a cowboy company selling on the black market. This was a company with enough Bt Cotton seeds for the 10,000 Hectares of Navbharat 151 planted at the time. On Monsanto’s complaint, the GEAC started an investigation, carried out by the two-member team of CD Mayee and T.V. Ramanaiah (from the Department of Biotechnology (DBT)), who found Bt traits in the cotton. A case was filed in Gujarat against Navbharat Seeds Pvt. Ltd.

Post investigation, the GEAC ordered all standing crops of Navbharat 151 to be uprooted and destroyed along with seed production plots due to the major risks posed by Bt. In a submission to the court, the GEAC stated:

“12 (I) THE CROP WHICH IS STANDING MAY PASS TO THE SOIL THAT MODIFIED GENES WHICH IT CONTAINS. THE EFFECT ON SOIL MICROORGANISMS CAN NOT BE ESTIMATED AND MAY CAUSE AN IRREVERSIBLE CHANGE IN THE ENVIRONMENT STRUCTURE OF THE SOIL. IT IS A STANDARD PRACTICE TO UPROOT CROPS WHICH POSE SUCH A THREAT. THE DESTRUCTION BY BURNING IS TO ENSURE SAFETY TO ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH AND TO OBVIATE ANY POSSIBILITY OF CROSS-POLLINATION.

(II) THE DESTRUCTION OF THE COTTON PRODUCE AS WELL AS SEEDS HARVESTED FROM THIS PLANT IS ALSO EQUALLY NECESSARY. THE COTTON WHICH HAS BEEN PRODUCED IS GENETICALLY MODIFIED COTTON, THE EFFECT OF WHICH I.E. ALLERGENICITY AND OTHER FACTORS ON MAMMALS ARE NOT TESTED. THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLES WOULD REQUIRE THAT NO PRODUCT, THE EFFECT OF WHICH IS UNKNOWN BE PUT INTO THE MARKET STREAM. THIS COTTON WHICH IN APPEARANCE IS NO DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER COTTON WILL INTERMINGLE WITH ORDINARY COTTON AND IT WILL BECOME IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTAIN ITS ADVERSE AFFECT. THE ONLY REMEDY IS TO DESTROY THE COTTON AS WELL AS THE SEEDS PRODUCED AND HARVESTED IN THIS MANNER.

(III) SINCE THE FARMERS ARE BEING PUT TO A LOSS, THE FURTHER PROCESS TO DETERMINE THE COMPENSATION PAYABLE TO FARMERS, WHO HAVE UNWITTINGLY USED THIS PRODUCT HAS TO BE DETERMINED AND UNDERTAKEN.

13. I WOULD RESPECTFULLY SUBMIT THAT EVERY DAY OF DELAY IN THIS MATTER POSES A THREAT TO THE ENVIRONMENT.”

Having just concluded that Bt was dangerous and all of it had to be uprooted and burned, a few weeks later the GEAC approved the commercial release of Monsanto-Mahyco Biotech (MMB) Bt Cotton.

The national farmers unions made a joint petition to the GEAC and asked for an inquiry committee to be set up and liability and compensation fixed on the basis of the “polluter pays” principle. Since Monsanto-Mahyco is admittedly the source of the GM pollution, they, along with Navbharat Seeds Pvt. Ltd, which has further spread the pollution, are jointly liable for the pollution caused.

Monsanto’s Bt Cotton has also found its way into edible vegetable oils in India.

In a government document, the Department of Biotechnology states:

COTTON SEEDS CAN BE TOXIC IF INGESTED IN EXCESSIVE QUANTITIES BECAUSE OF THE PRESENCE OF ANTI-NUTRITIONAL AND TOXIC FACTORS INCLUDING GOSSYPOL AND CYCLOPROPENOID FATTY ACIDS.

but then goes on to say in the next sentence:

THE OIL AND LINTERS ARE USED AS PREMIUM VEGETABLE OILS AND AS CELLULOSE DIETARY ADDITIVES FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION, RESPECTIVELY. TRADITIONALLY, WHOLE COTTON SEED IS USED AS CATTLE FEED IN INDIA. HOWEVER, THE INCREASE IN DEMAND OF EDIBLE OILS HAS NECESSITATED PROCESSING OF COTTON SEED FOR ITS OIL. THEREFORE, COTTON SEED OILCAKE/MEAL AFTER EXTRACTION IS NOW USED AS CATTLE FEED.

Monsanto’s Bt Cotton, without the support of necessary precautions and scientific studies, has illegally found its way into the Indian food chain, endangering the health of 1.26 billion Indians. The health effects of Bt Cotton seed oil in “premium vegetable oil” (as the DBT calls it) must be investigated and the damage to people’s health must be compensated by Monsanto.

Monsanto’s illegal collection of super-profits as royalties

India’s laws do not permit patents on seeds and in agriculture. But that hasn’t stopped Monsanto from collecting close to USD 900 million from small farmers in India, pushing them into crushing debt. This is roughly the same amount of money Monsanto spent buying The Climate Corporation—a weather big data company—in a bid to control climate data access in the future.

Monsanto-Mahyco Biotech Ltd collected royalties for Bt Cotton by going outside the law and charging “technology fees” and “trait value”. These are just clever names for royalty collection. In 2006, out of the INR 1600 (per 450 grams) price tag, INR 1250—almost 80 percent—wascharged by MMB as the trait value. Compared to Bt Cotton, local seeds used to cost INR 5-9 per kg before Monsanto destroyed alternatives, including local hybrid seed supply, through licensing arrangements and acquisitions.

In January 2006, the Andhra Pradesh Government filed a complaint with the Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Commission (MRTPC) against Monsato-Mahyco Biotech (MMB), accusing MMB of overpricing genetically modified Bt Cotton seeds. The Research Foundation for Science Technology and Ecology had to intervene in the MRTPC case. In its submission, the Andhra Pradesh Government pointed out that Monsanto charged only about INR 400 for the same packet of seeds in China and only about INR 200 in the U.S.—9 times less than the amount they were forcing Andhra Pradesh farmers to pay. MMB said the royalty it charged reflected its research and development costs for Bt Cotton, admitting that they were charging Indian farmers royalty and that for some reason, Indian farmers owed them more for their research and development than farmers in the U.S..

On May 10,  2006, the MRTPC ruled in favor of the Andhra Pradesh government and directed MMB to reduce the trait value it was unfairly charging the farmers of Andhra Pradesh. Following this, on May 29, 2006, the Andhra Pradesh Agricultural Commissioner fixed the price of Bt Cotton seeds at INR 750 for a 450-gram packet and directed MMB and its sub-licensees to comply with its order. Monsanto challenged the Andhra Pradesh Government and the MRTPC’s decision in the Supreme Court, saying that the government’s move was illegal and arbitrary. The Supreme Court did not stay the MRTPC’s order, but while the appeal was pending before it, five states— Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, West Bengal, and Madhya Pradesh (now Maharashtra as well)—followed Andhra Pradesh’s lead and ordered that Bt Cotton should be sold at a reduced price, dealing a blow to the inflated profits Monsanto was taking from Indian peasants and repatriating to their headquarters in St. Louis.

To side-step price control measures and avoid any regulation that had been applied to Bt Cotton, which was marketed in India as Bollgard, Monsanto introduced Bollgard II, its apparently ‘upgraded’ version with two Bt proteins. Monsanto’s intentional scientific ignorance (despite the availability of scientific studies at the time) is obvious. GMOs which release the Bt toxin in high doses in every cell of every plant are highly toxic to pollinators and friendly insects and are a recipe for creating super pests through the emergence of resistance. The pink bollworm underwent what every intelligent being does—it evolved—it became resistant to Bt. On it’s website, Monsanto admits, “Measures to delay resistance are critically important” and “application of insecticide sprays during the crop season and proper management of crop residue and unopened bolls after harvest will help limit insects in cotton fields”. What are farmers being made to pay for if normal bollworm control measures are still required, they are still expected to buy and spray insecticides and 80 percent of the cost of the seed goes for failed R&D?

Monsanto admitted that the pink bollworm was resistant to Bollgard and claimed Bollgard II, with it’s two Bt proteins would control the bollworm epidemic. This allowed Monsanto to continue looting marginalised small farmers. By claiming Bollgard II was better technology than the first version, Monsanto was able to mislead farmers and charge even higher prices. (Oblivious to it’s earlier Bt failures, Monsanto is currently working on a 3-protein Bt variety to continue it’s looting)

And Monsanto still claims Bt Cotton is resistant to Bollworm and have all their hired mouthpieces claim that there is reduced pesticide usage due to this inherent trait. In reality, requirements of pesticide increase every year with Bt Cotton. Clearly misrepresenting their lacklustre product, the only reason for the existence of Bt Cotton is royalties. Monsanto itself is on record at the 52nd Meeting of the GEAC (held on 4 March 2005) saying that Bt is not resistant to Bollworm.

“TO A QUERY ON WHETHER THE BT VARIETY IS RESISTANT TO BOLLWORM COMPLEX OR ONLY EFFECTIVE AGAINST AMERICAN BOLLWORM IT WAS CLARIFIED THAT BT COTTON IS TOLERANT TO BOLLWORM AND NOT RESISTANT.”

This ruthlessness is central to the crisis Indian farmers are facing. Farmers leveraged their land holdings to buy Bt Cotton seeds and the chemicals it demanded, but the golden promise of higher yield and lower input costs failed to deliver. They were left with no option but to take their own lives. (Incidentally, CD Mayee was the chair of the GEAC subcommittee on Bt Cotton, which still monitors the performance of Bt Cotton and his reports on the performance of Bt Cotton were and still are, very different from the real experiences of the farmers driven to suicide by failed harvests and inferior quality cotton yield.)

In 2007 Andhra Pradesh was forced to introduce the Andhra Pradesh Cotton Seeds Act to control the price of cottonseed, since Bollgard II prices were still astronomically high due to a majority royalty component.

The following Act of the Andhra Pradesh Legislature received the assent of the Governor in August 2007:

ACT NO.29 OF 2007

SHORT TITLE AND COMMENCEMENT

DEFINITIONS

AN ACT TO REGULATE THE SUPPLY, DISTRIBUTION, SALE AND FIXATION OF SALE PRICE OF COTTON SEEDS AND FOR THE MATTERS CONNECTED THEREWITH OR INCIDENTAL THERETO.

WHEREAS, COTTON SEEDS OF CERTAIN VARIETIES ARE NOT NOTIFIED UNDER SECTION 5 AND CONSEQUENTLY NO SALE OF SUCH SEEDS ARE REGULATED UNDER SECTION 7 OF THE SEEDS ACT, 1966;

AND WHEREAS, COTTON SEED IS NOT AN ESSENTIAL COMMODITY WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE ESSENTIAL COMMODITIES ACT, 1955 AS AMENDED BY THE ESSENTIAL COMMODITIES (AMENDMENT) ACT, 2006;

AND WHEREAS, THE PROVISIONS OF THE SEEDS (CONTROL) ORDER, 1983 ISSUED UNDER SECTION 3 OF THE ESSENTIAL COMMODITIES ACT, 1955 ARE NOT APPLICABLE IN SO FAR AS THEY RELATE TO THE COTTON SEEDS W.E.F. 12.2.2007;

AND WHEREAS, THERE IS NO PROVISION IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1986 TO REGULATE THE SUPPLY, DISTRIBUTION AND SALE OF TRANSGENIC AND GENETICALLY MODIFIED COTTON SEED AND TO CONTROL THE SALE PRICE OF SUCH COTTON SEED IN THE STATE;

AND WHEREAS, THE TRADERS IN COTTON SEED INCLUDING TRANSGENIC COTTON SEED ARE EXPLOITING POOR FARMERS BY COLLECTING EXORBITANT PRICES;

AND WHEREAS, THERE IS NO PROVISION TO REGULATE THE SUPPLY, DISTRIBUTION, SALE OF COTTON SEEDS AND TO CONTROL THE SALE PRICES OF SUCH COTTON SEEDS IN THE STATE;

AND WHEREAS, IT HAS BECOME IMPERATIVE ON THE PART OF THE STATE TO REGULATE THE SUPPLY, DISTRIBUTION AND SALE OF COTTON SEEDS BY FIXING THE SALE PRICE IN THE INTERESTS OF THE FARMERS IN THE STATE;

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ANDHRA PRADESH IN THE FIFTY-EIGHTH YEAR OF THE REPUBLIC OF INDIA AS FOLLOWS :- 1. (1) THIS ACT MAY BE CALLED THE ANDHRA PRADESH COTTON SEEDS

(REGULATION OF SUPPLY, DISTRIBUTION, SALE AND FIXATION OF SALE PRICE) ACT, 2007.
(2) IT SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE COME INTO FORCE ON AND FROM THE 28TH JUNE, 2007.

This restriction on their profits did not sit well with Monsanto, which then challenged the Andhra Pradesh Cotton Seeds Act. The Research Foundation for Science Technology and Ecology had to intervene in the case once more, which is still before the Andhra Pradesh High Court.

While Monsanto does not have a patent on Bt cotton in India, it goes outside the law to collect royalties as “technology fees”. Most of the 300,000 farmers suicides in India since 1995 (when the WTO came into force) are concentrated in the cotton belt. And 95 percent of the cotton in India is controlled by Monsanto.

Out of India’s 29 states, those with Bt Cotton have the highest suicide rates.

Correlation is the first step to understanding causation. Monsanto does not see the above correlation because the next logical step would be to plead guilty for the deaths of all the farmers whose lives have been reduced to numbers on a table, or a bank account in St Louis.

Additionally, Monsanto knows that Bt Cotton is dependent on irrigation. Despite this knowledge, Monsanto has pushed its Bt Cotton into regions that depend solely on rainfall, as opposed to irrigation. These include Vidarbha in Maharashtra, where most cotton farms are less than 1 hectare and are dependent solely on rainfall. The costs of Bt cottonseed and insecticide increase the risk of farmer bankruptcy in low-yield rainfed cotton. The criminal negligence of knowingly setting up marginal farmers—who can’t afford to irrigate and whose options for obtaining seeds have been acquired by Monsanto—for dire failure, cannot be ignored.
A recent research paper published by Environmental Sciences Europe concluded:

“[THE] INABILITY TO USE SAVED SEED AND INADEQUATE AGRONOMIC INFORMATION TRAP COTTON FARMERS ON BIOTECHNOLOGY AND INSECTICIDE TREADMILLS. ANNUAL SUICIDE RATES IN RAINFED AREAS ARE INVERSELY RELATED TO FARM SIZE AND YIELD, AND DIRECTLY RELATED TO INCREASES IN BT COTTON ADOPTION (I.E., COSTS). HIGH-DENSITY SHORT-SEASON COTTONS COULD INCREASE YIELDS AND REDUCE INPUT COSTS IN IRRIGATED AND RAINFED COTTON. POLICY MAKERS NEED HOLISTIC ANALYSIS BEFORE NEW TECHNOLOGIES ARE IMPLEMENTED IN AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT.”

“Fourteen years after U.S. multinational Monsanto brought the genetically modified (GM) Bt Cotton (Bollgard) to India, there is no clarity on the discovery having ever been patented in the country,” states a recent Times of India article. India does not recognize patents on life, including seeds. The royalties Monsanto has collected over the last 14 years are based on a patent that does not exist and is therefore, quite simply, theft. Monsanto is robbing the people who have the least, of the very last thing they can give—their lives.

Illegal patents on life through Monsanto’s laws in the WTO

In 1980 the U.S. Supreme Court heard a case that is now famous for being the point in world history where life forms were first allowed to be patented—not only in the US, but through the WTO, in many other parts of the world. Ananda Mohan Chakrabarty, a General Electric employee, had applied for a patent for a process of producing a bacterium capable of eating crude oil spills and on the bacteria itself. The claim was rejected by the U.S. Patent office, but on appeal, was granted by a 5-4 majority in the Supreme Court.

“The decision of the Supreme Court in Diamond v. Chakrabarty, 447 U.S. 303, 206 USPQ 193 (1980), held that microorganisms produced by genetic engineering are not excluded from patent protection by 35 U.S.C. 101

4. “This is not to suggest that § 101 has no limits or that it embraces every discovery. The laws of nature, physical phenomena, and abstract ideas have been held not patentable.”

5. “Thus, a new mineral discovered in the earth or a new plant found in the wild is not patentable subject matter. Likewise, Einstein could not patent his celebrated law that E=mc2; nor could Newton have patented the law of gravity.”

Genetic engineering has not been able to deliver on its promises—it is just a tool of ownership. Bt Cotton is not resistant to Bollworm, RoundUp Resistant varieties have only given rise to super weeds and the new promises being made by biotech corporations of bio-fortification are laughable. There is no benefit to things like Golden Rice. By adding one new gene to the cell of a plant, corporations claimed they had invented and created the seed, the plant, and all future seeds, which were now their property. Monsanto does not care if your cotton field has Bollworm infestations, just so long as the crop can be identified as theirs and royalty payments keep flowing in. This is why the failure of Bt Cotton as a reflection of bad science does not bother them—the cash is still coming into St Louis. At its core, genetic modification is about ownership.

In 1981, shortly after the precedence of life forms being patented had been set in the U.S., Monsanto, which was a chemical company at the time, decided—as it lays out on it’s own website—that biotechnology would be its strategic research focus in the future. Selling chemicals requires raw materials that eat into profit. Intellectual Property, on the other hand, just pays. In the decade and a half since 1981, with this new “strategic research focus” and all the R&D dollars you can imagine, Monsanto has only been able to produce failures—failures that pay royalties from all across the world.

Monsanto saw that by claiming ownership of life forms, especially seed—the first step in the food chain—and destroying alternatives or making them illegal, would allow them to charge royalties for the source of food, fibre and fuel. It was easy money and a lot of it. The limited achievements of Monsanto’s research focus have not given us better cotton, corn, canola or soya—they’ve merely made it all theirs.

Monsanto required new forms of property rights, inspired by the U.S. Supreme Court, to be able to claim as an invention that which is not invented by them—seed and life forms. This was achieved through the World Trade Organization (WTO), working closely with the U.S. Government and with the Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) agreement.

Patents are granted for inventions and give the patent holder the right to exclude everyone from the use or marketing of a patented product or process. Over the last two decades, patent laws have taken a different direction under the influence of corporations like Monsanto, from protecting the interests of genuine inventions and ideas to ownership of life and control over survival essentials like seed and medicine.

JAMES ENYART OF MONSANTO IS ON RECORD ILLUSTRATING JUST HOW DEEPLY THE TRIPS AGREEMENT IS ALIGNED TO CORPORATE INTEREST AND AGAINST THE INTERESTS OF NATIONS AND THEIR CITIZENS:

“INDUSTRY HAS IDENTIFIED A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR INTERNATIONAL TRADE. IT CRAFTED A SOLUTION, REDUCED IT TO A CONCRETE PROPOSAL AND SOLD IT TO OUR OWN AND OTHER GOVERNMENTS… THE INDUSTRIES AND TRADERS OF WORLD COMMERCE HAVE PLAYED SIMULTANEOUSLY THE ROLE OF PATIENTS, THE DIAGNOSTICIANS AND THE PRESCRIBING PHYSICIANS.”

Corporations defined a problem—farmers saving seed—so that they could forcefully open the market. In turn, they offered a solution and the solution was the introduction of patents and intellectual property rights on seed, making it illegal for farmers to save their seed. This is how the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs) Agreement of the WTO was born. For the U.S. Government, with an economy where the manufacturing industry was slowing, the idea of royalties coming in to fuel the economy was perfect.

ARTICLE 27.3 OF THE TRIPS AGREEMENT STATES:

3. MEMBERS MAY ALSO EXCLUDE FROM PATENTABILITY:

(A)    DIAGNOSTIC, THERAPEUTIC AND SURGICAL METHODS FOR THE TREATMENT OF HUMANS OR ANIMALS;

(B)    PLANTS AND ANIMALS OTHER THAN MICRO-ORGANISMS, AND ESSENTIALLY BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PLANTS OR ANIMALS OTHER THAN NON-BIOLOGICAL AND MICROBIOLOGICAL PROCESSES. HOWEVER, MEMBERS SHALL PROVIDE FOR THE PROTECTION OF PLANT VARIETIES EITHER BY PATENTS OR BY AN EFFECTIVE SUI GENERIS SYSTEM OR BY ANY COMBINATION THEREOF. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SUBPARAGRAPH SHALL BE REVIEWED FOUR YEARS AFTER THE DATE OF ENTRY INTO FORCE OF THE WTO AGREEMENT.

This is the Monsanto Law of the TRIPS Agreement. Drafted by Monsanto lawyers and riding on the U.S. taxpayer’s dollar, it bulldozes the world leaving behind nothing but royalty liabilities.

Section 3(b) of Article 27 is what is cleverly designed to be a trojan horse and to prohibit the free exchange of seeds between farmers, threatening their subsistence and their ability to save and exchange seeds. Shooting a gene into an organism through a gene gun is not a biological process. A seed growing into a plant that gives seed is a biological process. But the non-biological process of the insertion of a gene is patentable according to Article 27.3(b). Genetic engineering has been defined as “non-biological” and/or “microbiological” by the same lawyers that put the Monsanto Law into the TRIPS agreement, allowing the patentability of seeds and other life forms through genetic manipulation.

Objections to the Monsanto Law were raised owing to the basic idea that life cannot be patented.

India, in its submission, stated:

Clearly, there is a case for re-examining the need to grant patents on lifeforms anywhere in the world. Until such systems are in place, it may be advisable to:- (a) exclude patents on all lifeforms

The African group stated:

The African Group maintains its reservations about patenting any life forms as explained on previous occasions by the Group and several other delegations. In this regard, the Group proposes that Article 27.3(b) be revised to prohibit patents on plants, animals, micro-organisms, essentially biological processes for the production of plants or animals, and non-biological and microbiological processes for the production of plants or animals. For plant varieties to be protected under the TRIPS Agreement, the protection must clearly  and not just implicitly or by way of exception, strike a good balance with the interests of the community as a whole and protect farmers’ rights and traditional knowledge  and ensure the preservation of biological diversity.

Due to the strong objections raised at the WTO it was decided that the Monsanto Law (TRIPs clause on patents on life) would be due for a mandatory review within the first 4 years of the WTO—by 1999. The review of the clause on patents on life has been blocked and subverted for the last 16 years by Monsanto and the Monsanto-friendly government of the United States, to protect the royalties that are moving money from impoverished farmers world over to the United States of America.

This is not for the benefit of the U.S. as a nation. The illegal royalties collected do not benefit citizens of the U.S.. In fact, the liberties and basic human rights of the citizens of the U.S. are being restricted by this royalty-hungry monster, just like those of the Indian cotton farmer. There is an attempt, in the U.S., by Monsanto and the aiding U.S. Government, to deem all non-patented seed illegal—even the tomato you have in your garden. And all this is being done in the name of “protecting and maintaining the food sources of America.”

Since 1991, when the draft text of the WTO agreements was leaked, the National Working Group on Indian Patent Law worked with Parliament and the government to ensure that public interest was protected in any amendment made in India’s patent laws in order to make India’s IPR regime TRIPS-compliant. Methods of agriculture and plants were excluded from patentability in the Indian Patent Act to ensure that seed, the first link in the food chain, was held as a common property resource in the public domain and farmers’ inalienable right to save, exchange and improve seed was not violated. And only process patents (patents on processes) were allowed in medicine.

When India amended her Patent Act, safeguards consistent with TRIPS were introduced based on a scientific definition of “invention”.

ARTICLE 3 DEFINES WHAT IS NOT PATENTABLE SUBJECT MATTER.

ARTICLE 3(D) EXCLUDES AS INVENTIONS “THE MERE DISCOVERY OF ANY NEW PROPERTY OR NEW USE FOR A KNOWN SUBSTANCE”.

This was the article under which Novartis’s patent claim to a known cancer drug was rejected. This is the article that Novartis tried to challenge in the Supreme Court and lost.

ARTICLE 3(J) EXCLUDES FROM PATENTABILITY “PLANTS AND ANIMALS IN WHOLE OR IN ANY PART THEREOF OTHER THAN MICROORGANISMS; BUT INCLUDING SEEDS, VARIETIES, AND SPECIES, AND ESSENTIALLY BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES FOR PRODUCTION OR PROPAGATION OF PLANTS AND ANIMALS”.

This was the article used by the Indian Patent Office to reject a Monsanto patent on climate resilient seeds and is also why farmers in India are, at the very least, safe from Monsanto lawyers, unlike the thousands of farmers across the world like Bowman, Steve Marsh and Percy Schmeiser being sued by Monsanto for being farmers.

India’s patent laws, based on good science and drafted by conscientious people, get in the way of Monsanto’s royalty collections, if only on paper. The U.S. Government, under the influence of Monsanto, has been pressurizing countries like India to change their patent regimes to fit into Monsanto’s plan, meanwhile subverting the review of the Monsanto Law, though it has legally been obligated to do since 1999.

In 1996 the U.S. Government brought a case in the WTO against India due to the “alleged absence of patent protection for pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical products in India.” It was to ensure protection of Monsanto’s royalties on seeds and its carcinogenic Glyphosate molecule. Monsanto was attempting to subvert the democratic laws of India using the U.S. Government to strong arm India, as it is doing even today. U.S. President Obama’s recent trip to meet Indian Prime Minister Modi in India was, aside from a show of wardrobe, intended to pressurize India into changing its IPR regime to better suit American industry. The proposed changes are in no way designed to foster innovation within India, for which Indian laws are quite good.

India’s sovereignty is under attack by Monsanto. American citizens’ rights to garden in their backyards with seeds they freely exchange with one another are under attack by Monsanto. African farmers’ livelihoods are under attack by Monsanto. The world’s food system is under attack by Monsanto. Hundreds of thousands of Indian cotton farmers have died under attack from Monsanto. It is a war being waged to profit from every grain of corn and soya, rice or banana you eat. The citizens of the world are victims of this war, from the U.S. and Argentina to India, across the Pacific through the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and across the Atlantic through the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

If a country other than the U.S. was blocking and subverting the review of the Monsanto Law, that country would have been bombed by drones a long time ago. It is time to tell the U.S. Government to stop being a Monsanto Government writing laws on behalf of Monsanto at home and imposing them worldwide. It is time for the U.S. government to stop being a rogue nation and stop blocking the mandatory review of TRIPS, the International Monsanto Law—even if it’s 16 years late. It is time to tell the U.S. government to stop criminalizing farmers who save seeds or whose seeds are contaminated by Monsanto.

Monsanto should be tried for its smuggling of a controlled substance into India and allowing genetically modified cottonseed oil into the premium vegetable oils of India, a country where GM is not allowed in the food system.

Monsanto must compensate farmers for royalties collected on the basis of an imaginary patent and the reparations due for the hundreds of thousands of farmers it has killed by collecting illegitimate and illegal royalties. Life is priceless. Monsanto can never return the father or the husband it pushed to suicide. Corporations like Monsanto will never really understand the value of life unless we put a dollar figure to the debt  the widows and the children of the dead are owed. Insurance statisticians have put the life of a “prime aged worker”, in the U.S., at a median value of USD 7 million. Eighty-four percent of 300,000 suicides, 252,000, are directly attributed to Monsanto’s Bt-Cotton. By this calculation, Monsanto, in addition to the illegal royalties collected, owes the families of ‘prime aged’ working farmers in India an amount of USD 1.764 Trillion. We must ensure reparations are made and Monsanto does not shrug it’s responsibilities by changing it’s name, buying Syngenta, or through any other corporate tax evasion/liability reducing tricks it’s lawyers conjure up.

Internationally Monsanto must be tried for its crimes against nature, people, science and knowledge, freedom and democracy. Our governments need to start working for their citizens instead of Monsanto and the mandatory review of the Monsanto Law of the TRIPS agreement must be done if the U.S. values ‘freedom’.

We need to have reverence for nature and ecological justice must be served. Reparations, for the genocide in India, in accordance with International Law, are due.

VII. VICTIMS’ RIGHT TO REMEDIES

11. REMEDIES FOR GROSS VIOLATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS LAW AND SERIOUS VIOLATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW INCLUDE THE VICTIM’S RIGHT TO THE FOLLOWING AS PROVIDED FOR UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW:

(A) EQUAL AND EFFECTIVE ACCESS TO JUSTICE;

(B) ADEQUATE, EFFECTIVE AND PROMPT REPARATION FOR HARM SUFFERED;

(C) ACCESS TO RELEVANT INFORMATION CONCERNING VIOLATIONS AND REPARATION MECHANISMS.

We must end Monsanto’s colonization, its enslavement of farmers—for whom the only escape from the Monsanto treadmill is suicide. We must not allow Monsanto to profit from the loss of innocent lives. Private enterprise cannot be allowed to profit from global public risk. Real lives are more valuable than fake patents.This illegal takeover of our food, our seeds and our democracies and the killing of farmers must be stopped.

evolution-to-fat

 

By Karen Foster

The link between the rising rates of chronic disease and modern agriculture, processed foods and factory farming can no longer be ignored.Over 70% of the global burden of type 2 diabetes will fall on individuals from developing countries by 2030, according to new research warning that ancestral malnutrition could mean a higher risk of obesity and diabetes in those consuming a ‘normal diet’ now and in the future.

In an article by Eaton et al., it states that “although our genes have hardly changed, our culture has been transformed almost beyond recognition during the past 10,000 years, especially since the Industrial Revolution.”1 We have strayed so far from our ancestral diets and lifestyles. Ancient peoples and even isolated hunter-gatherer cultures that still exist today ate wild, fresh foods in their natural state with minimal processing and certainly without synthetic chemicals. Their lifestyles were also very different from ours. According to another article by Eaton et al., “groups whose way of life tends to continue the Stone Age pattern have low rates of complex degenerative diseases.” They did not suffer the same rates of degenerative diseases that plague modern society.

Findings from recent research suggests that the emerging middle classes from developing countries may as or more susceptible than western populations to obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease as a result of the chronic under-nutrition endured by their ancestors.

Led by Professor Anandwardhan Hardikar’s team at the University of Sydney, the 12-year, multi-generational rat study suggests that because recent ancestors were exposed to chronic malnutrition, the populations’ epigenetic makeup (whereby changing environmental factors alter how people’s genes are expressed) has not compensated for these dietary changes.

“Their adverse metabolic state was not reversed by two generations of nutrient recuperation through a normal diet,” said Hardikar. “Instead this newly prosperous population favoured storage of the excess nutrients as fat leading to increased obesity, cardiovascular disease and metabolic risk for diabetes when compared to their ‘developed world’ counterparts.

According to the team, this means their bodies are still designed to cope with undernourishment; so they store fat in a manner that makes them more prone to obesity and its resulting diseases than populations accustomed to several generations of a ‘normal’ diet.

This means that there will be a signficant impact from the cultural and socio-economic factors is now spurring the demand for convenience foods. If we place high priority on our health and understand that what we eat determines and shapes not just our physical characteristics but also our personalities as well, we’d all take what we eat much more seriously. Food even controls the very expression of our genes. We are connected to our food and where it comes from in ways that we have not yet fathomed and studies such as these are showing that we may not be able to correct the damage we are creating in one or even two generations.

Study details

The research team performed the multi-generational study on two groups of rats. The first group was undernourished for 50 generations and then put on a normal diet for two generations — so mimicking the situation in many developing countries where recent increased prosperity has led to a sudden increase in calories — from undernourished to a ‘normal’ diet.

Epigenetic changes in gene expression ultimately keep the risk of cardiovascular disorders higher than it would be had there been no exposure to unhealthy foods in the first place.

Quantifying epigenetic changes due to nutritional habits has been a challenge for scientists, but many are now stating the quest is even more important than acute bio-chemical reactions outside of the genome.

Meanwhile, the second (control) group maintained a normal diet for 52 generations.

At the end of the study it was found that when the descendants of the first group were exposed to a normal diet, this did not reverse the epigenetic modifications made by their undernourished forebears.

In fact, these rats were eight times more likely to develop diabetes and multiple metabolic defects when compared to the control group.

They concluded that eating a ‘normal’ diet can make animals, and possibly people, overweight, if their ancestors had been undernourished for several generations.

Biologists have suspected for years that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level. The different kinds of cells in our bodies provide an example. Skin cells and brain cells have different forms and functions, despite having exactly the same DNA. There must be mechanisms–other than DNA–that make sure skin cells stay skin cells when they divide.

The way we interact with the world changes our DNA, not just the other way around. More intriguing, one of the major ways we can change our DNA is by diet. For example, a study published in 2008 showed that exposing mice brains to as little as 6 hours of high blood sugar led to epigenetic changes that increased risk of vascular damage. These changes lasted even after 6 days of normal blood glucose, representing long-term damage after just a short blast of sugar. The research on long-term effects from short exposures is at the core of epigenetics. It’s furthered by data from another 2008 study published in the journal Diabetes.

Biomarkers of risk?

Hardikar also suggested that lower Vitamin B12 levels in the undernourished rats could also be an indicator of the trend — a and is also something that has been suggested in humans.

“Human studies from Ranjan Yajnik’s group at KEM Hospital in Pune, India have demonstrated that low circulating B12 and high folate levels are associated with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes,” he commented.

“Hopefully further research in understanding the gut microbes, which are major producers of Vitamin B12 in our body, and/or dietary supplementation with Vitamin B12 and other micronutrients, could reduce the risk of metabolic diseases in the coming generations,” Hardikar added.

The ability of nutritional history to have durable affects on immune cells demonstrated in this new report could have profound implications for treatment of diseases with immune underpinnings.

Chemtrails

 

by TLB Contributor: Dane Wigington

Of all the companies and corporations that represent twisted greed, corruption, and irreparable destruction to our planet and it’s life forms, Monsanto stands out. Not only is Monsanto involved with the total chemical contamination and genetic modification of our food supply at the ground level, but available evidence indicates that Monsanto is intricately connected to the toxic aerosol climate engineering operations in our skies. Why did Monsanto purchase “Climate Corp” for almost a billion dollars? Those that are part of the ongoing weather wars against global populations must control the message in regard to the weather “forecasting”. All the major weather forecasting agencies are owned by the power structure complex. There are clear and growing connections between Monsanto and other power structure owned agencies like “The Weather Channel”. As the ongoing geoengineering programs continue to contaminate soils with aluminum and the atmospheric spraying shreds the ozone layer, Monsanto is engineering seeds to address these issues. Coincidence? Monsanto has expanded like a cancer in spite of the EPA knowing the dangers of Monsanto’s chemicals for decades. The trend of cover-up is breaking down as a growing segment of the population realizes the gravity of what is being done to them. The short article below highlights the steps now being implemented to hold companies like Monsanto accountable. As the curtain is pulled back, there will be ever more exposure on the greatest assault against life ever launched by the human race, global climate engineering.

EPA Forced To Study Atrazine And Glyphosate’s Effects On Endangered Species

Source: Natural Society, article by Christina Sarich

More than 1500 endangered plants and animals in the US are under attack by two of the most widely used pesticides known – Atrazine and Glyphosate. Now, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be forced to research why this is happening as part of a settlement reached with the Center for Biological Diversity.

In addition to these two pesticides, the EPA will also analyze the impacts of propazine and simazine, two Big Ag pesticides that are very similar to Syngenta’s widely used Atrazine. The EPA is required to finish the assessments of all these chemicals by June 2020.

This is a considerable settlement, though it seems like a drop in the bucket considering that over 80 million pounds of Atrazine are used in the US annually, alone. The pesticide is second only to the use of Monsanto’s glyphosate, which was sprayed to the tune of 280 million pounds on crops in 2012, according to U.S. Geological Survey data.

Endangered species policy director at the Center for Biological Diversity, Brett Hartl states:

“This settlement is the first step to reining in the widespread use of dangerous pesticides that are harming both wildlife and people. . .Atrazine, for instance, chemically castrates frogs even in tiny doses, is an endocrine disruptor, and likely causes birth defects in people. The EPA should have banned this years ago.

This settlement will finally force the EPA to consider the impacts of glyphosate — widely known as Roundup — which is the most commonly used pesticide in the United States, on endangered species nationwide. With more than 300 million pounds of this stuff being dumped on our landscape each year, it’s hard to even fathom the damage it’s doing.”

The harmful effects of glyphosate are becoming common knowledge, especially since the WHO’s declaration of the chemical as probably carcinogenic. Ever since that declaration, communities and even entire nations have at least put restrictions on glyphosate use, putting Monsanto in a financial hole. What’s more, Monsanto is being hit with lawsuit after lawsuit for the general act of polluting the world – and knowing about this toxic pollution for years.

As for Syngenta, well, that biotech company has gone to great lengths to cover up just how dangerous Atrazine can be. But nothing can stay secret forever.
