GMO's must be banned, not labeled

Who really benefits from GMO labeling?

Would labeling do more harm than good?

I don't know, but this is disturbing. This guy really understands how the propaganda game is played.

It does seems to me that labeling is a pretty lame approach to this crisis.



YesOn37 Jon Rappoport's Blog



Quoting 
Monsanto wanted to make the whole GMO issue about people who buy products. It wanted to frame the issue around that.



Why? Because that trivializes the whole situation. It isn’t about destruction of the natural food supply, it isn’t about the tonnage of poisonous pesticide sprayed on Roundup Ready GMO crops. It isn’t about nutrient-deficient GMO food. It isn’t about owning patents on the world’s food crops. It isn’t about the health dangers of eating GMO food. It isn’t about destroying the small farmer. It isn’t about all that. It’s really, you see, about the consumer’s right to know what’s in his food.



It’s about the buyer, the person who spends money at the check-out counter. It’s about consumers, and aren’t we all consumers? Aren’t we just people into whom are funneled all sorts of products? Isn’t that who we are? Aren’t we just the little creatures who buy stuff?

GMO and Obamacare connection?

Something else to worry about. A disturbing amount of plausibility. This blog is getting scary.

Obamacare Jon Rappoport's Blog



Quoting 
At this late date, there are still people who don’t see the consequences of Obamacare. They cling to the notion that it’s simply a wonderful system that will allow more people to get vital medical care. That’s all they see or want to see.

They agree that medical treatment has an alarming toxic track record. But they don’t want to admit that Obamacare will spread that toxicity even further......

Therefore, the federal government (in collusion with pharmaceutical companies) will control, in great detail, the practice of medicine, and if that makes you feel warm and fuzzy, I have condos for sale on Pluto. You think the CDC and FDA are overbearing now? You haven’t seen anything yet.

Here’s a case of how this con game would function:

Let’s say a young boy suddenly develops rapid mood swings. He’s up, he’s down, he’s all over the place. He throws tantrums, then he sits in his room and won’t talk to anyone.

Unknown to him or his parents, the cause of all this bizarre behavior was GMO corn. The inserted genes in the corn provoked a massive inflammatory response, in which his immune system attacked the myelin insulation surrounding his nerves.

But the medical diagnosis, according to the Obamacare chart of allowable interpretations: Bipolar disease.

Now come the Bipolar drugs. Lithium, Valproate, with their highly destructive adverse effects—and the sanctity of GMO crops is protected.

And to take this a step further, the company that produces and sells GMO corn seeds knows all this. It knows that many people who are being diagnosed with Bipolar are actually suffering from an autoimmune reaction to the genes inserted in the corn.

GMO Corn field: The Dead Zone


This is not sustainable. This environment is so toxic that nothing except gmo corn can live there. Eventually that will fail too.



Quoting 
There were no bees. The air, the ground, seemed vacant. He found one ant "so small you couldn't pin it to a specimen board." A little later, crawling to a different row, he found one mushroom, "the size of an apple seed." (A relative of the one pictured below.) Then, later, a cobweb spider eating a crane fly (only one). A single red mite "the size of a dust mote hurrying across the barren earth," some grasshoppers, and that's it. Though he crawled and crawled, he found nothing else.

"It felt like another planet entirely," he said, a world denuded.

Yet, 100 years ago, these same fields, these prairies, were home to 300 species of plants, 60 mammals, 300 birds, hundreds and hundreds of insects. This soil was the richest, the loamiest in the state. And now, in these patches, there is almost literally nothing but one kind of living thing. We've erased everything else.

1 of 3 seed catalogs makes a statement on gmo's

Got 3 gardening/seed catalogs in the mail recently. Glad to see that one company made a statement that none of their seeds contain GMO's

The New EU Seed Law:

"On Monday May 6th a draconian new law was put before the European Commission, which creates new powers to classify and regulate all plant life anywhere in Europe.

The "Plant Reproductive Material Law" regulates all plants. It contains immediate restrictions on vegetables and woodland trees. (It also creates powers that can be used to restrict any other plants in the future, but the details of how this will work are left for later.)

Under the new law, it will immediately be illegal to grow, reproduce or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been tested and approved by a new "EU Plant Variety Agency", who will make a list of approved plants. Moreover, an annual fee must also be paid to the Agency to keep them on the list, and if not paid, they cannot be produced."

New EU Seed Law on Plant Reproductive Materials - what it means.



REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL
On the production and making available on the market of plant reproductive material
(plant reproductive material law)

All in bed together

according to this article, the Grocery Manufacturers association is laundering money for the GMO companies efforts to avoid labeling.

Grocery Manufacturers Association caught running money laundering slush fund for GMO food companies to conceal their identities in opposing I-522

Yesterday, Food Democracy Now! received an urgent call from a concerned Congressional staffer about Monsanto's latest efforts to undermine our basic democratic rights.

As politicians in Washington DC discuss the "fiscal cliff", biotech lobbyists are desperate to slide provisions into any end of the year omnibus spending bill to make sure their new GMO crops can evade any serious scientific or regulatory review.

These riders, which we dubbed the "Monsanto Protection Act" earlier this year, would strip federal courts of their authority to halt the sale and planting of an illegal and potentially hazardous GMO crop.

Sadly I think "democratic rights" is a term for other countries.
I'm not clear on how these riders get in and why bills can't be clean, I guess it's part of the "democratic" USA process.

GMOs are a nightmare.
The big corps (food and drugs and doctors - yes I can them a corp) own the system.
GMO are bad for the environment your health and poor people.
GMOs are good for profits of the three amigos (food corps and drug corps and doctors).

All of the three amigos have a vested interested in seeing you sick - chronically sick.
They love GMOs.

They hate small organic farmers and people growing their own vegetables and working for a better healthier planet.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Stop the King Amendment: they are trying to stop States from Labeling GMO's!!!!!


There's a new petition taking off on Change.org, and we think you might be interested in signing it:

U.S. Congress: Stop the King Amendment to the 2013 Farm Bill

By Campaign for Safe Food
Los Angeles, California


Sign the Petition:

https://www.change.org/petitions/u-s-congress-stop-the-king-amendment-to-the-201...id=XKIRLfajwJ_fhrFDGglBP

Right now, a House and Senate conference committee is hashing out the details of the 2013 Farm Bill.

Within the House version of the bill is an amendment offered by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) that has the potential to wipe out states’ rights to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The amendment includes sweeping language about states’ rights to regulate food and farming, and could nullify a wide range of state and local measures regarding food safety, labeling, environmental requirements, humane treatment of farm animals, labor standards, and other important issues.

The amendment could also overturn current bans on dangerous agricultural chemicals like methyl iodide, and allow a flood of these pesticides into our food supply.

But there's still time to keep this dangerous amendment out of the final version of the Farm Bill. Please sign and share our petition today!

To read more about this flawed and potentially disastrous amendment:

Sign the Petition and please email to others.

PS Different states have been passing their Label GMO bills etc. Some of the states can't stand by themselves and need other states to pass the bill etc for it to start to go into effect.
People are finding out about GMO's and are getting laws passed etc.
We need to stand up for our individual rights and share this information with others so we can get the word out.
The government should represent it's people and not corporations which do not have our interests at heart.

I personally healed myself of a basal cell carcinoma and one of the things I did was remove all GMO's from my diet.
While going through the healing process by mistake I ate some catchup that had GMO canola oil in it and my basal cell carcinoma flared up.
Another time, by accident I ate some GMO corn and once again the basal cell carcinoma flared up.

I have meet a lot of people who are getting allergies, can't eat corn, getting immune diseases, can't get pregnant and people who are dying way to early in life from cancers and they happened to eat a lot of
GMO sugar etc. Cancer has been on the rise since GMO's came into the food supply. One out of every 2 people will come down with some form of cancer.
Please stand up and share this information with others, so we can stop this GMO experiment on US citizens!!!!

The idea is, enough people find out, stand up and they will stop buying GMO products and that will cause the tipping point where corporations like Kellog's will no longer use GMO corn etc.
It is starting to happen, we just need to get the word.
We are not expecting Corporations to do the right thing but will be motivated when they start loosing profits.
Kellog's make GMO free corn flakes for Europe but uses GMO corn for the US.
Herseys' uses GMO free sugar for Europe but GMO sugar for the US.
These Corporations can and know how to not use GMO's for Europe and once they see there profits decrease for GMO products, they can easily switch to non-GMO, heck they are already doing it for Europe!!!

I believe each individual can make a difference and GMO's should definately not be in our food supply!!!

Wishing you a GMO free and Happy Holidays,

Rachel

PSS Monsanto hercide is causing new diseases in the plant kingdom along with the rise of old diseases. Dr. Mercola interviewed this scientist for plant diseases and he stated it was alarming and contacted the head of the FDA Food and Safety division (who happens to be a Monsanto man, put in that department and created for him by Pres. Obama) and I do not think he has done anything about it. The thing is, there is a new plant disease that jumps from plant to human being that was developed or mutated from using Monsanto's Roundup!!! This has never existed before and now it is out there. We need to stop using Roundup, it is destroying our enviroment and could have huge problems for mankind in the near future. You can go to www.Mercola.com and look at past interview videos on GMO's or go to www.organicconsumer.org and read articles about Monsanto's dirty dealings.
