Monsanto GMO Science Now Being Rejected By The NY Times

no-gmos[1]By: Jon Rappoport:

This isn’t a leak. It isn’t a timid flow. It’s a flood.

I’m talking about about the criticism of Monsanto’s so-called science of genetically-engineered food.

For the past 20 years, independent researchers have been attacking Monsanto science in various ways, and finally the NY Times has joined the crowd.

But it’s the way Mark Bittman, lead food columnist for the Times magazine, does it that really the crashes the whole GMO delusion. Writing in his April 2 column, “Why Do G.M.O.’s Need Protection?”, Bittman leads with this:

“Genetic engineering in agriculture has disappointed many people who once had hopes for it.”

As in: the party’s over, turn out the lights.

Bittman explains: “…genetic engineering, or, more properly, transgenic engineering – in which a gene, usually from another species of plant, bacterium or animal, is inserted into a plant in the hope of positively changing its nature – has been disappointing.”

As if this weren’t enough, Bittman spells it out more specifically: “In the nearly 20 years of applied use of G.E. in agriculture there have been two notable ‘successes,’ along with a few less notable ones. These are crops resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (Monsanto develops both the seeds and the herbicide to which they’re resistant) and crops that contain their own insecticide. The first have already failed, as so-called superweeds have developed resistance to Roundup, and the second are showing signs of failing, as insects are able to develop resistance to the inserted Bt toxin – originally a bacterial toxin – faster than new crop variations can be generated.”

Bittman goes on to write that superweed resistance was a foregone conclusion; scientists understood, from the earliest days of GMOs, that spraying generations of these weeds with Roundup would give us exactly what we have today: failure of the technology to prevent what it was designed to prevent. The weeds wouldn’t die out. They would retool and thrive.

“The result is that the biggest crisis in monocrop agriculture – something like 90 percent of all soybeans and 70 percent of corn is grown using Roundup Ready seed – lies in glyphosate’s inability to any longer provide total or even predictable control, because around a dozen weed species have developed resistance to it.” Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup.

Just as the weeds developed resistance and immunity to the herbicide, insects that were supposed to be killed by the toxin engineered into Monsanto’s BT crops are also surviving.

Five years ago, it would have been unthinkable that the NY Times would print such a complete rejection of GMO plant technology. Now, it’s “well, everybody knows.”

The Times sees no point in holding back any longer.

Of course, if it were a newspaper with any real courage, it would launch a whole series of front-page pieces on this enormous failure, and the gigantic fraud that lies behind it. Then the Times might actually see its readership improve.

Momentum is something its editors understand well enough. You set your hounds loose on a story, you send them out with a mandate to expose failure, fraud, and crime down to their roots, and you know that, in the ensuing months, formerly reticent researchers and corporate employees and government officials will appear out of the woodwork confessing their insider knowledge.

The story will deepen. It will take on new branches. The revelations will indict the corporation (Monsanto), its government partners, and the scientists who falsified and hid data.

In this case, the FDA and the USDA will come in for major hits. They will backtrack and lie and mis-explain, for a while, and then, like buds in the spring, agency employees will emerge and admit the truth. These agencies were co-conspirators.

And once the story unravels far enough, the human health hazards and destruction wreaked by GMOs will take center stage. All the bland pronouncements about “nobody has gotten sick from GMOs” will evaporate in the wind.

It won’t simply be, “Well, we never tested health dangers adequately,” it’ll be, “We knew there was trouble from the get-go.”

Yes, the Times could make all this happen. But it won’t. There are two basic reasons. First, it considers Big Ag too big to fail. There is now so much acreage in America tied up in GMO crops that to reject the whole show would cause titanic eruptions on many levels.

And second, the Times is part of the very establishment that views the GMO industry as a way of bringing Globalism to fruition for the whole planet.

Centralizing the food supply in a few hands means the population of the world, in the near future, will eat or not eat according to the dictates of a few unelected men. Redistribution of basic resources to the people of Earth, from such a control point, is what Globalism is all about:

“Naturally, we love you all, but decisions must be made. You people over here will live well, you people over there will live not so well, and you people back there will live not at all.

“This is our best judgment. Don’t worry, be happy.”

11 Comments on Monsanto GMO Science Now Being Rejected By The NY Times

  1. Boycott, boycott, boycott. But can you go without your processed convenience foods containing corn syrup?

  2. The only way to stop these murderers is for EVERYONE to stand up and make as much noise as possible, boycott companies who use GMO’S and all protest to gov. To change this. Or we ARE ALL DEAD!!!

  3. Thank you! This is not an issue about political parties or ideologies. Both sides in power are in power in part because of hand-holding with Monsanto and other large companies. They scratch each other’s backs. That is how disgusting government is and has been for quite some time.

  4. The thing about “the conservative view” when it comes to Monsanto is that they don’t admit that by supporting the monopolistic, government protected, modified-engineered-patented-brave new world production of God’s creation or nature, which robs farmers of their traditional freedom by requiring contracts and suing farmers who save seeds, and making consumers the unwilling participants in their “one-world, gmo-food for all” agenda, by supporting Monsanto (Bill Gates) one is supporting the biggest liberal agenda in the history of food and farming. Both conservatives and liberals in Congress support Monsanto, it’s because of campaign money and political connections…not about principles or ethics or so-called science. True conservatives don’t approve of Monsanto. As far as the left/liberals, they need to look at their leader in the white house without the rose colored glasses, since he has no problem appointing Monsanto executives to the FDA and USDA, or signing legislation or spending bills which protect and fund Monsanto.

  5. While definitely important, Bittman is a “foodie” blogger within the NYT world, and certainly does not represent the conservative position of the NYT editorial board. Hopefully the board will listen, but certainly Bittman’s words will continue to permeate the thinking within the Times, and hopefully within the media in general.

  6. The people are not only dissappointed in GMO or Vaccines—they are killing us and our kids. In criminals refusals to tell you what caused all syndromes, psych, and cancers and failures to treat the gene sharing stealth of spirochetal disease now has the whole world on the abyss of existance. Because all their JUNK DNA is sharing their genes in spirochetal prion protein infections we were given in vaccines.

    Never before in the history of mankind has people been so duped….

    Spirochetal prion proteins do not care what junk DNA they share their genes with. All GMO is fair game in the magic act they are. And when it occurs you get a majik show of gene sharing stealth commonly missdiagosed as cancers.


    You people better be deciding if you want to keep going without bread because we no longer tolerate their junk GMO gluten grains.

  7. Hats off to you Mark Bittman. This is the kind of news ‘we’ were waiting with folded hands to appear on a tabloid as credible as The Times. Where does Monsanto go from here? Where do their plans to bring global food under their wings go from here? Further flutters and outrages are expected and awaited.

  8. Isn’t that already the case? In order to not eat, or drink things that will make you incredibly ill and eventually kill you, you have to buy your water in bottles, and eat all your own home grown food. Fortunately for the wealthy, they have their own personal farm lands, and farmers who grow their food. They have special deep water wells, all the while they throw hydrofluorosilic acid in your water supply that is recycled from sewage. They make laws that prevent you from gardening your own land. The future is now, and they own you all.
