Manufactured Scumbaggery

Bloody hell.

I did it again.

You have to understand that I'm more concerned with getting this information out than worrying about the aesthetics of my postings. I will, however, try to avoid this in the future.

IIRC, I came up with the term SCUMBAGGERY. Feel free to use it whenever appropriate.

Let's begin with the first piece:

Why is the U.S. government so keen to protect Monsanto?

By J.D. Heyes 
Most know that corporate monopolies are nothing new, even though anti-trust laws that ostensibly outlaw monopolies have been around since the late 1800s in the United States. However, complete ownership in patented grain seeds equates to a monopoly over the nation’s – and the world’s – food supply, and yet that power is currently vested in one company.
As noted by Chemistry World, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of seed master and GMO king Monsanto and against an Indiana farmer whom the court claimed violated intellectual property rights when he dared to replant the company’s GM, herbicide-resistant seeds as a second-generation crop.
Dave Murphy, head of Food Democracy Now! explained that the ultimate outcome of the ruling means the nation’s highest court “unanimously affirmed the corporate takeover” of the country’s food supply, marking a huge win for Monsanto, but a terrible loss for once-independent American farmers and the consumers for whom they grow and to whom they sell their crops. The ruling is the end-result of a longstanding effort by Monsanto to “subvert family farmers that do not use their genetically-engineered seeds,” he noted. Murphy added that the ruling gives Monsanto near-complete control over what Americans eat.
Monsanto moves one step closer to total food control
What’s more, the high court’s ruling wasn’t even close; announced May 13, it was unanimous, leading to much celebration by the biotech and bio-agriculture sectors, while of course being lamented by environmental and sustainable food organizations.
The justices upheld a lower court ruling that Vernon Bowman, the farmer, violated Monsanto’s property rights when he salvaged seeds from the previous year’s crop and then replanted them the next. The high court ruled that seed buyers can resell patented seeds under something called “patent exhaustion” doctrine, but cannot make new copies of them.
“The question in this case is whether a farmer who buys patented seeds may reproduce them through planting and harvesting without the patent holder’s permission,” the justices concluded. “We hold that he may not.”
The ruling means that Bowman will have to pay Monsanto in excess of $84,000 in damages and court costs, and be saddled with a patent infringement charge.
Observers of the court decision and Monsanto’s long-pursued tactics of dominating the seed market say that the win further solidifies absolute control over the global food supply, which has been a goal of the agri-business giant for some time. Once they establish that seeds are copyrighted property and can be owned, the next thing that will happen is that Monsanto will begin charging royalties, since the world’s farmers will be totally dependent on the company in order to grow crops.
If all seeds are controlled, then obviously all food will be controlled. That is more powerful than guns and bombs, The Waking Times noted.
Creating a monopoly with a single court ruling
Ellen Brown, writing in Counter Punch, used this quote from Nixon Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, to illustrate the dominance: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”
Brown notes further that at the present, 60 to 70 percent of foods in all U.S. supermarkets are genetically modified. By contrast, in at least two dozen other countries, including Switzerland, Australia, Austria, China, India, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Mexico and Russia, GMO foods and seeds are at least partially and, in some cases, totally banned. In about 60 other countries, there are significant restrictions on GMOs.
But not in the United States. Instead, there is a virtual GMO seed- and food monopoly, and it was recently cemented by the nation’s highest court.

Okay, here's some more:

After FDA found weedkiller in nearly 100% of honey products, it kept the information secret and refused to warn the public

Thursday, September 22, 2016 by: Daniel Barker

(NaturalNews) The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been doing its best to protect Monsanto and the entire GMO industry by dragging its feet and hiding information regarding glyphosate content in foods.

Glyphosate, the most widely-used herbicide on the planet and an essential component in GMO agricultural methods, has been the subject of increasing concern - particularly since the World Health Organization (WHO) classified it as a "probable human carcinogen" in 2015.

For many years, the FDA avoided testing foods for glyphosate residue at all, parroting Monsanto's assurances that the herbicide poses no threat to human health, but under mounting public pressure it finally began conducting tests in February of this year.

Although the agency routinely tests foods for other pesticide residues, it has rather suspiciously left glyphosate off of the list until now.

From The Huffington Post:

"[FDA testing] came after many independent researchers started conducting their own testing and found glyphosate in an array of food products, including flour, cereal, and oatmeal. The government and Monsanto have maintained that any glyphosate residues in food would be minimal enough to be safe. But critics say without robust testing, glyphosate levels in food are not known. And they say that even trace amounts may be harmful because they are likely consumed so regularly in many foods."

And the results of the FDA's own tests are truly disturbing.

Glyphosate residue found even in "100% all-natural" honey
Documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal, for example, that glyphosate residue was found in all of the honey samples tested by the FDA - even honey marketed as being "100% all-natural." Some of the samples contained twice the European Union's allowable amount of glyphosate residue, and there is no allowable limit for glyphosate in honey produced in the U.S. - at least not yet.

This means that U.S. honey producers are technically in violation of the law - at least until tolerance levels are set by the FDA.

FDA denial and stalling tactics
But the FDA doesn't seem to be in any hurry to set any tolerance levels for honey. In fact, internal emails obtained through FOIA requests reveal that although honey producers are technically in violation, the agency doesn't consider it important because "it is not a safety issue."

In other words, the FDA is still dragging its feet to do anything, and is not currently planning to either set tolerance levels, or hold honey producers responsible for violating the law. In a statement, the FDA said: "there is no dietary risk concern from exposure to glyphosate residues in honey at this time."

And, of course, it's not really the fault of the honey producers to begin with, since glyphosate use is so widespread and because beekeepers have no real control over where the bees collect the pollen used in making honey.

The emails and other documents obtained show that the FDA is aware of the "glyphosate controversy," but seems both unwilling and unable to do much about it, other than keeping its test results secret and continuing its stalling tactics.

But slowly, the truth is leaking out regarding the dangers of glyphosate and the fact that both the FDA and the USDA have been corrupted through the lobbying efforts of Monsanto and the GMO industry as a whole.

For years, the Frankenfood industry has managed to keep its dark secrets with the help of a sold-out federal regulatory system, but the public is finally waking up to the deception and the dangers posed to the health of virtually every person on the planet.

Nothing short of a worldwide ban on GMOs and the use of glyphosate is an acceptable solution - we must collectively continue to fight the Frankenfood industry until it no longer exists in the United States or anywhere else.


There are so many articles here on the Zika hoax, I can't pick just one.

Waking Science has a plethora of information, as well.

The following is laden with documents, so you should read it at the source: Staged Zika pandemic was engineered by globalist governments to justify the aerial bombardment of awakening populations with toxic chemicals

I'm re-watching VAXXED. When I went to the premiere, I was too early for the 8:00 show, and the showing was about 20 minutes in. Regardless, I went in, and watched the movie. I was sure I'd be able to catch those missing minutes, ands now I have. The crucial data began when I caught the showing.

What I did miss was the beginning of the pharmaceutical industry's takeover of our health, as evidenced by the Meningitis outbreak dialogued in the beginning of VAXXED.

An irresponsible distribution of a badly-created drug caused an initial outbreak in Europe, and after a hue and cry, it was banned for sale.

They just went to the third world and caused another outbreak.

Gotta make that money, after all.

That's the entire globalist plan, in a nutshell: turn the world's population into pill-swilling zombies, and make them pay for it.
