Join The FoodJustice March Against Monsanto In Washington DC! (VIDEOS)


Join The Food Justice Coalition as we go to D.C. to fight The DARK Act! Friday will be a day of action and Saturday will be The Food Justice Rally with speakers beginning at noon until 1:30pm.

Food Justice Action: 2-Day Schedule of Events

On Friday, Oct. 16th, Truth in Labeling and Moms Across America are organizing lobbying groups to meet with Senators to lobby for the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act. They are also organizing buses with the option for either a round-trip ride or a one-way ride if you stay over for Saturday.

***Note that we have moved the narrative march portion of this action to Friday, Oct. 16th.*** We believe we will have far more of an impact doing the narrative march while the locations we are targeting are open for business. There will be a second march following the rally on Saturday.

We ask all participants to meet at Lafayette Park about 3 p.m. We will begin the march at USTR and the Chamber of Commerce. Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese will speak about the TPP. Then we’ll head to Monsanto to occupy the building while a presentation is given. We are being a bit quiet on specifics as our groups and event pages have been infiltrated by Monsanto shills, but expect some cool visuals. From the Monsanto building, we will head to the EPA (about 5 p.m., as a point of reference). Zen Honeycutt will speak about glyphosate, recent testing and the EPA’s lackadaisical attitude towards a solution. We are asking participants to consider dressing as bees so we can do a bee die-in in the lobby of the EPA. After the EPA, we will head to the White House. Please bring a flashlight so you can help us Shine A Light On The DARK Act. We will have the advantage of rush hour traffic at this point and we believe this unique form of protest will have a stunning visual impact! If you can’t make it, but still want to contribute, you can donate here.

On Saturday, October 17th, the Food Justice Rally starts at noon sharp on the West Lawn of the Capitol building. Know that the permit begins at 10am and I encourage you to come early and take part in education workshops that MAMNYC is organizing. I’ll be speaking alongside other grassroots activists like Steven Druker and Anthony Gucciardi. After the rally, there will be a unity march through the streets of D.C. ***Please bring flashlights, signs, and any banners you may have!***

Why is this Important?

Monsanto is responsible for tainting our food supply with glyphosate and GMOs. Even worse, Monsanto fights GMO labeling and suppresses your right to know what you’re eating.

How to Detox Your Body of GMOs Right NOW

A while back I sat down with Anthony Gucciardi of Natural Society to discuss the top 10 GMO foods you should avoid.

We also talked about the dangers of genetically modified foods and how you can detox your body.

Unholy Alliance


Never underestimate the power of a mom. Or a blogger. Or, worse yet, a mommy blogger.

Leah Segedie was “completely shocked” when she learned that Monsanto and the American Academy of Pediatrics were bedfellows, joined by a “sponsor partnership.” So the mom, blogger and founder of the popular blogger network, Mamavation, reached out to the Academy’s public affairs team, via a personal friend.

The result? The American Academy of Pediatrics will sever ties with Monsanto at the end of this year.

It’s good to see that an organization entrusted with the final word on the health of kids is finally joining other physicians in taking a stand against one of the chief poisoners of a whole generation of our children.

We devote a lot of time to fighting the anti-GMO war in state and federal legislatures, because we have to. It’s important work, and we’ll keep doing it. But it’s important to remember the power we all have to influence those outside of the State Houses and the U.S. Capitol. And the good that can come of that power.

GMOs: A Scientist’s Perspective

By: Jonathan R. Latham, PhD

(Independent Science News) By training, I am a plant biologist. In the early 1990s I was busy making genetically modified plants (often called GMOs for Genetically Modified Organisms) as part of the research that led to my PhD. Into these plants we were putting DNA from various foreign organisms, such as viruses and bacteria.

I was not, at the outset, concerned about the possible effects of GM plants on human health or the environment. One reason for this lack of concern was that I was still a very young scientist, feeling my way in the complex world of biology and of scientific research. Another reason was that we hardly imagined that GMOs like ours would be grown or eaten. So far as I was concerned, all GMOs were for research purposes only.

Gradually, however, it became clear that certain companies thought differently. Some of my older colleagues shared their skepticism with me that commercial interests were running far ahead of scientific knowledge. I listened carefully and I didn’t disagree. Today, over twenty years later, GMO crops, especially soybeans, corn, papaya, canola and cotton, are commercially grown in numerous parts of the world.

Depending on which country you live in, GMOs may be unlabeled and therefore unknowingly abundant in your diet. Processed foods (e.g. chips, breakfast cereals, sodas) are likely to contain ingredients from GMO crops, because they are often made from corn or soy. Most agricultural crops, however, are still non-GMO, including rice, wheat, barley, oats, tomatoes, grapes and beans.

For meat eaters the nature of GMO consumption is different. There are no GMO animals used in farming (although GM salmon has been pending FDA approval since 1993); however, animal feed, especially in factory farms or for fish farming, is likely to be GMO corn and GMO soybeans. In which case the labeling issue, and potential for impacts on your health, are complicated.

I now believe, as a much more experienced scientist, that GMO crops still run far ahead of our understanding of their risks. In broad outline, the reasons for this belief are quite simple. I have become much more appreciative of the complexity of biological organisms and their capacity for benefits and harms. As a scientist I have become much more humble about the capacity of science to do more than scratch the surface in its understanding of the deep complexity and diversity of the natural world. To paraphrase a cliché, I more and more appreciate that as scientists we understand less and less.

The Flawed Processes of GMO Risk Assessment

Some of my concerns with GMOs are “just” practical ones. I have read numerous GMO risk assessment applications. These are the documents that governments rely on to ‘prove’ their safety. Though these documents are quite long and quite complex, their length is misleading in that they primarily ask (and answer) trivial questions. Furthermore, the experiments described within them are often very inadequate and sloppily executed. Scientific controls are often missing, procedures and reagents are badly described, and the results are often ambiguous or uninterpretable. I do not believe that this ambiguity and apparent incompetence is accidental. It is common, for example, for multinational corporations, whose labs have the latest equipment, to use outdated methodologies. When the results show what the applicants want, nothing is said. But when the results are inconvenient, and raise red flags, they blame the limitations of the antiquated method. This bulletproof logic, in which applicants claim safety no matter what the data shows, or how badly the experiment was performed, is routine in formal GMO risk assessment.

To any honest observer, reading these applications is bound to raise profound and disturbing questions: about the trustworthiness of the applicants and equally of the regulators. They are impossible to reconcile with a functional regulatory system capable of protecting the public.

The Dangers of GMOs

Aside from grave doubts about the quality and integrity of risk assessments, I also have specific science-based concerns over GMOs. I emphasise the ones below because they are important but are not on the lists that GMO critics often make.

Many GMO plants are engineered to contain their own insecticides. These GMOs, which include maize, cotton and soybeans, are called Bt plants. Bt plants get their name because they incorporate a transgene that makes a protein-based toxin (usually called the Cry toxin) from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis. Many Bt crops are “stacked,” meaning they contain a multiplicity of these Cry toxins. Their makers believe each of these Bt toxins is insect-specific and safe. However, there are multiple reasons to doubt both safety and specificity. One concern is that Bacillus thuringiensis is all but indistinguishable from the well known anthrax bacterium (Bacillus anthracis) (1). Another reason is that Bt insecticides share structural similarities with ricin. Ricin is a famously dangerous plant toxin, a tiny amount of which was used to assassinate the Bulgarian writer and defector Georgi Markov in 1978. A third reason for concern is that the mode of action of Bt proteins is not understood (Vachon et al 2012); yet, it is axiomatic in science that effective risk assessment requires a clear understanding of the mechanism of action of any GMO transgene. This is so that appropriate experiments can be devised to affirm or refute safety. These red flags are doubly troubling because some Cry proteins are known to be toxic towards isolated human cells (Mizuki et al., 1999). Yet we put them in our food crops.

A second concern follows from GMOs being often resistant to herbicides. This resistance is an invitation to farmers to spray large quantities of herbicides, and many do. As research recently showed, commercial soybeans routinely contain quantities of the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) that its maker, Monsanto, once described as “extreme” (Bøhn et al 2014).

Glyphosate has been in the news recently because the World Health Organisation no longer considers it a relatively harmless chemical, but there are other herbicides applied to GMOs which are easily of equal concern. The herbicide Glufosinate (phosphinothricin, made by Bayer) kills plants because it inhibits the important plant enzyme glutamine synthetase. This enzyme is ubiquitous, however, it is found also in fungi, bacteria and animals. Consequently, Glufosinate is toxic to most organisms. Glufosinate is also a neurotoxin of mammals that doesn’t easily break down in the environment (Lantz et al. 2014). Glufosinate is thus a “herbicide” in name only.

Thus, even in conventional agriculture, the use of glufosinate is hazardous; but With GMO plants the situation is worse yet. With GMOs, glufosinate is sprayed on to the crop but its degradation in the plant is blocked by the transgene, which chemically modifies it slightly. This is why the GMO plant is resistant to it; but the other consequence is that when you eat Bayers’ Glufosinate-resistant GMO maize or canola, even weeks or months later, glufosinate, though slightly modified, is probably still there (Droge et al., 1992). Nevertheless, though the health hazard of glufosinate is much greater with GMOs, the implications of this science have been ignored in GMO risk assessments of Glufosinate-tolerant GMO crops.

A yet further reason to be concerned about GMOs is that most of them contain a viral sequence called the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) promoter (or they contain the similar figwort mosaic virus (FMV) promoter). Two years ago, the GMO safety agency of the European Union (EFSA) discovered that both the CaMV promoter and the FMV promoter had wrongly been assumed by them (for almost 20 years) not to encode any proteins. In fact, the two promoters encode a large part of a small multifunctional viral protein that misdirects all normal gene expression and that also turns off a key plant defence against pathogens. EFSA tried to bury their discovery. Unfortunately for them, we spotted their findings in an obscure scientific journal. This revelation forced EFSA and other regulators to explain why they had overlooked the probability that consumers were eating an untested viral protein.

This list of significant scientific concerns about GMOs is by no means exhaustive. For example, there are novel GMOs coming on the market, such as those using double stranded RNAs (dsRNAs), that have the potential for even greater risks (Latham and Wilson 2015).

The True Purpose of GMOs

Science is not the only grounds on which GMOs should be judged. The commercial purpose of GMOs is not to feed the world or improve farming. Rather, they exist to gain intellectual property (i.e. patent rights) over seeds and plant breeding and to drive agriculture in directions that benefit agribusiness. This drive is occurring at the expense of farmers, consumers and the natural world. US Farmers, for example, have seen seed costs nearly quadruple and seed choices greatly narrow since the introduction of GMOs. The fight over GMOs is not of narrow importance. It affects us all.

Nevertheless, specific scientific concerns are crucial to the debate. I left science in large part because it seemed impossible to do research while also providing the unvarnished public scepticism that I believed the public, as ultimate funder and risk-taker of that science, was entitled to.

Criticism of science and technology remains very difficult. Even though many academics benefit from tenure and a large salary, the sceptical process in much of science is largely lacking. This is why risk assessment of GMOs has been short-circuited and public concerns about them are growing. Until the damaged scientific ethos is rectified, both scientists and the public are correct to doubt that GMOs should ever have been let out of any lab.

Organic Farmers Suffer 77-Fold Increase In Lost Revenue From GMO Contamination In Last 3 Years


By: Justin Gardner, The Free Thought Project |

Monsanto has many weapons in its arsenal when it comes to eliminating competition from non-GMO and organic farmers. After more than two decades of pushing their products onto US farmland with purposely flawed safety studies, the sheer presence of genetically modified crops poses an existential threat to the business of traditional and organic farming.

A new report has come out showing the extraordinary costs that non-GMO and organic farmers incur from GMO contamination of their crops.

“Results from the newest USDA survey indicate that of the farmers who chose to answer the question, 92 had experienced monetary loss between 2011 and 2014 averaging approximately $66,395 per farmer during that timeframe. Overall, GMO presence cost organic farmers at least $6.1 million over four years. This figure is 77 times that reported during the 2006 to 2011 timeframe—a staggering increase.”

The USDA conducted its first survey this year of the financial losses suffered by non-GMO and organic farmers from contamination. They did so at the urging of rights groups such as Food and Water Watch, who conducted their own survey in 2013.

That report found that one in three farmers had dealt with GMO contamination, causing many buyer rejections at a median cost of $4,500 each rejection. Considering the 77-fold increase in financial burden since previous years, it is clear that the biotech industry is pushing their competition toward financial ruin.

But genetic contamination is only half the story. The USDA’s report excludes losses incurred from pesticide drift, which occurs when crops such as Monsanto’s “RoundUp Ready” corn are sprayed and the chemical drifts onto nearby fields. This will become a bigger burden as more chemical–resistant GMO crops are approved by friendly federal agencies.

“Regarding drift issues, one farmer we surveyed wrote, ‘my only problem comes from drift when commercial chemical sprayers spray on a windy day and the spray drifts across the road or buffer strip to kill my alfalfa or other crops. I call the company and complain but they have never compensated me for my loss as of yet.’ Regarding dicamba, another farmer wrote, ‘I’m more concerned with spray drift—especially with the effort to release Banvel-resistant soybeans. Everyone knows how volatile that chemical can be—not only to organic farmers but all farmers and home owners.’ Even Roundup, considered to be less harmful and less prone to drift than 2,4-D and dicamba has been a huge problem for organic growers. One farmer wrote, ‘in the last 16 years I have had three instances where spray drift has affected my fields. All three times it was Roundup. It has totaled $65,000 and I have had to start the three-year transition process [for organic certification] all over., Not only has spray drift negatively affected relationships between neighbors, it has resulted in organic farmers being forced to take some areas of their farm out of organic production completely.”

All of these burdens—from wind-driven pollen contamination to post-harvest seed/grain mixing to pesticide drift—are borne by the victimized farmers. They must establish buffers or adopt delayed planting regimens, and they alone bear the financial cost of rejected crops.

Meanwhile, biotech companies enjoy regulatory and financial support from their co-conspirators in federal departments, as they slowly grind the competition to dust.

Adding insult to injury, last year Monsanto persuaded their friends at the Supreme Court (including former Monsanto attorney Clarence Thomas) to grant Monsanto the ability to sue farmers whose fields are inadvertently contaminated with GMO material.

The results of these attacks on multiple fronts are being seen, with the number of organic farms decreasing over the past few years.

Stalemate? Or Checkmate?


With each new published study, independently conducted and peer-reviewed, alerting us that glyphosate is more toxic than we thought, poses a more serious health threat than was previously believed, the reaction is the same.

Monsanto denies the facts, attacks the scientists and directs the media and the public to its own industry-funded studies as “proof” that glyphosate (and Roundup) are perfectly safe.

After decades of this back-and-forth, and decades of government regulatory agencies siding with Monsanto, instead of independent scientists and the public, we’re still at a stalemate.

That could change, according to the author of this week’s essay—if could be proven in a court of law that Monsanto has known for decades that glyphosate is one of the most toxic substances ever launched on the public.

It could happen.

Hawaii: Sun, Sand And Pesticides


In five years in Waimea on the Hawaiian island Kauai, at least nine babies have been born with severe heart malformations, more than 10 times the national rate. Meanwhile, Kauai is sprayed with 17 times more pesticide per acre than mainland cornfields. Kauai boasts 12,000 acres of GMO corn test plots, yielding three crops per year in Hawaii’s ideal climate. The chemical companies neither employ buffer zones around the fields nor disclose what they spray. Their political clout has so far prevented Hawaii from banning GMOs, but Hawaiians continue to fight for the health of their children and land.


Emergency Food, The Time Is Now!


By: Preston Sallenback |

As we sit watching the craziness of the world swirl around us we must be aware that it’s only a matter of time before things get “Real”. What I mean by this is, we are close… shits about to hit the fan and few are prepared. Personally I’m fine with it but I don’t think that’s the common consensus among most Americans. At least that’s what I’m hearing from my daily callers freaking out about food as I sense their fear of being ill prepared.

The subject of storing up emergency food is not new, in fact we have been warned for many, many years. Although it has been talked about in detail few have seem to have taken action by heeding the council… If you are one that has heard the warning but have failed to taken action to stocked up, please take a minute and ask yourself… “If things were to collapse tomorrow and I couldn’t get to my money would I have all that my family needs to survive?” If your answer to that question is a No, I would ask you, what the hell are you waiting for?

It is for this purpose I write this article, to warn you, the time is now!

With the current state of affairs the world is very ill and ready to implode. With Russia flying their nuke bombers around our borders daily, China’s war ships parked off the coast of Alaska, our corrupt as hell government and their ties to the Muslim brotherhood and ISIS; we have a very limited amount of time to get our families adequately prepared. To say it differently, if you’re not already of the prepper mind set, own a gun or two and have plenty of food, water and ammo -you’re late to the game and better wake the hell up, and fast!

Now I don’t speak as some dim-witted nut job, rather as an insider deeply involved in the emergency preparedness world, someone in the know.

It’s mind blowing to me, to know just how few really understand the magnitude of the evil designs being planned and how dark the hearts are of the conspiring men working against us to destroy the U.S.A Constitution and Bill of Rights as they attempt to usher in their satanic, New World Order.

“He who controls the food supply controls the people.”

                                                                                    ~ Henry Kissinger

If you’re not aware of the N.W.O. and their plans or don’t understand end times prophecies I urge you to learn about it and how temporal preparedness is only half of the equation. When the world speaks of being prepared they focus on the tangible but let me share something with you, it takes more then food and water to survive the up coming proclamation of desolations about to hit the Americas.

We learn from the bible that a spiritual war is being waged and that you and I are right in the thick of it, right now! Read the following verses found in Ephesians and see if you can connect the dots.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints…

This piece of scripture is profound and would be wise for all to ponder and come to understand the times with which we now live.

Something I personally find quite disturbing is the dumbed down zombied out sleepy Americans and their “all is well” attitude going about their day with heads in the sands of deception, mind control and propaganda.

If you happened to have been blessed to have been raised as a good, God fearing man, women or child you have probably been taught that the end times (now) are to be filled with all manner of deceptions, false prophets, false gods, floods, famines, earth quakes etc. But no matter what your background, the two truths remain the same for survival, 1) we must have good nourishing food and 2) good clean water to abide the day.

This is where my wisdom, knowledge and experience exceed that of others, concerning end times, prophesy and the need for storable food & water. This is what I know and council others to think about and prepare for and I’d like to take a few minutes here to reiterate food and of it’s vital importance to your survival.

One thing mentioned most often when consulting people on getting setup with an ample supply of quality food, is the importance of buying foods that are made using certified, GMO Free ingredients. I also council on the dangers of genetically modified foods (G.M.O = Genetically Modified Organisms) found in 90% of all processed foods today including some of the biggest brands of emergency foods available today. I also warn consumers about those companies making false “GMO Free claims” by asking them for documentation to substantiate their claims.

After years of studying the dangers and health risks of consuming GM foods I spent weeks looking for a food storage company that offered foods that were free of GMO’s and found nothing. I thought, I don’t want to buy food from a company that’s going to harm my families health, but what options do I have? None! It was after coming to this conclusion that I decided to develop a high end line of my own. I wanted to create something I could be proud of. Something I could attach my name to. Something that would be far superior to what’s out there, something that would be the healthiest GMO Free food available for those looking as I did for the highest quality. I wanted even more to bring to market a food line that was all natural and tasted delicious, that had an incredibly long shelf life and contained; No MSG, No Trans Fats, No or Low Cholesterol, Low Fat, Low Sodium, No HFCS and uses Sea Salt. 

It was soon after our launch that the word got out and Nuvona Premium GMO Free Foods was off and running, giving me the chance to speak freely to help educate consumers on where to get started and what make good vs keep you barely alive emergency foods by explaining that not all emergency foods are created equal. I challenge consumers to do their homework, to look beyond the price tag and not settle for second best on something there life may depends on someday. I warn of the imposters and how foolish it is to waste money on the big brands of unhealthy, poor quality, poor tasting emergency foods that are seeming to flood the web/market daily and how these less quality food products will not be what their family want or need during times of crisis. 

I urge everyone, everywhere to learn all they can about premium quality GMO Free food storage. I invite all to inquire today about our award winning emergency food line Nuvona Premium GMO Free Foods. Call me, I’m always available to help you with this important decision, but call before it’s to late! 

Preston Sallenback is an emergency food expert that manufactures and sells some of the finest GMO Free emergency foods on the market today through his award winning brand, Nuvona Premium Foods. After several years of research and development Preston developed and launched Nuvona Premium GMO Free Foods in the fall of 2012 and brought to market the first true, Certified GMO Free emergency food line. While doing his research he found that most of the current emergency food companies of today were more concerned about making money then they were about truly helping people become prepared for the perilous times with which we now live. Preston also found during the research period that most of his competitors foods we’re made with very low quality, high sodium, dangerous GMO laden ingredients, poor tasting, weird mouth feel & texture with just enough nutritional value to just keep you alive in time of a crisis. He also found that the majority of the companies had priced their low quality products very high for what consumers were getting for their money. Preston had a real problem with the products he found and the unethical practices in the industry. As a lover of high quality products he found there was nothing out there that lived up to his high standards, it was for this purpose that he was driven to created the product line that would… Nuvona Premium GMO Free Foods. Preston is a lover of truth and seeker of further light and knowledge who loves the mountains and the great outdoors. While he’s not attending to the needs of friends and family Preston is a wonderful husband and father of 7 wonderful, wide awake children.

Will Monsanto Launch Another ‘Sneak Attack’ In Congress?


(Organic Consumers) Something is going to happen. If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.

So we were told recently by a Senate staffer, during one of the many meetings we’ve held with Senators to urge them to reject H.R. 1599, or what we refer to as the DARK—Deny Americans the Right to Know—Act.

Could that comment mean Monsanto is cooking up another “sneak attack,” similar to the one it conducted in 2013, that led to passage of the Monsanto Protection Act? Only this time, the sneak attack would be aimed at stomping out the GMO labeling movement?

It wouldn’t surprise us. A quick look at the lay of the land reveals that Monsanto and Big Food have several opportunities to rush the DARK Act into law, without a hearing or a stand-alone vote in the Senate.

How likely is that to happen? We don’t know for certain. But it’s worth remembering that Monsanto and Big Food are nothing if not opportunists. Please sign our petition asking key Senators to reject a Monsanto “sneak attack” that would send the DARK Act sailing into law, without due democratic process.

A Bill to End GMO Labeling for Good

In case you’re still in the dark about the DARK Act, here’s the Readers Digest backgrounder. (There’s plenty more here, including fact sheets, leaflets, talking points and toolkits).

Rep. Mike “Agribusiness Puppet” Pompeo (R-Kan.) introduced H.R. 1599 earlier this year. He then managed to rush it through the House, where it passed by a vote of 275 to 150 on July 23 (2015).

The bill is a sweeping attack on states’ rights to self-govern on the issue of GMO labeling, and on consumers’ right to know if their food has been genetically engineered. If the Dark Act becomes law, there will never be GMO labels, safety testing of GMOs, protections for farmers from GMO contamination or regulations of pesticide promoting GMO crops to protect human health, the environment or endangered pollinators.

Under what most of us would consider a fair and democratic process, the bill would move next to the Senate, where there would be the opportunity for debate, amendments and a vote.

But with the July 1, 2016 enactment of Vermont’s GMO labeling law, Act 120, looming, Monsanto is probably thinking it doesn’t have time to slog through a Senate hearing and stand-alone vote, especially as the Senate has yet to introduce its own version of the bill. And perhaps even more daunting than the July 1 deadline, is the prospect that the DARK Act might get watered down, or worse yet killed, in the Senate—a risk Monsanto would likely prefer to avoid.

Four Potential Sneak Attack Scenarios

So, what are the potential “sneak attack” scenarios that would allow Monsanto to push through the DARK Act this year, without going through the normal Senate process?

There are several. They all take advantage of the fact that Congress is seriously behind on its work, and that the threat of a government shutdown looms.

When Congress leaves its must-pass legislation to the last minute, bills don’t go through the normal legislative process where votes and amendments take place in committee hearings and floor debates. Instead, bills are negotiated behind closed doors, then, to increase the likelihood they’ll pass, brought to votes with only limited debate and amendments.

In a skit titled “You Stuck What Where?” the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart described how this last-minute legislating makes it easy for lawmakers to sneak provisions into bills, with no accountability:

It turns out, members of Congress involved in writing a bill while the bill is in subcommittee, are allowed to add any provision they want, anonymously. No fingerprints. The laws of the most powerful nation are written with the same level of accountability as internet comments.

This year, Congress could procrastinate until December and then cram all of its must-pass legislation into one “grand bargain.” This would be the perfect opportunity for Monsanto to launch a “You Stuck What Where?” sneak attack. We might not even know until it’s too late, if unscrupulous House and Senate leaders were to slip the DARK Act into a “grand bargain” that included appropriations, reauthorizations, extensions of expiring legislation, and an increase in the debt ceiling.

But, even if these bills are dealt with individually, there’s still ample opportunity for sneak attacks.

How could Monsanto sneak the DARK Act into law? Here are what we believe are the scenarios industry lobbyists are probably considering.

1.    They’ll sneak it into a must-pass spending bill.

The government needs to be funded by September 30. But Congress is way behind in its work on its spending bills. Not a single one of a dozen annual appropriations bills has passed both chambers yet this year. That increases the likelihood that lawmakers will try to pass another Continuing Resolution to keep spending at basically the same level as last year, and keep the government open.

This would give Monsanto a chance to launch the same “sneak attack” strategy it used in 2013, when the Monsanto Protection Act (Monsanto called it the Farmers Assurance Provision) was slipped into a six-month Continuing Resolution cobbled together at the 11th hour to avert a government shut-down.

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) played a big role in the 2013 Monsanto Protection Act “sneak attack.” He could do it again with the DARK Act, especially if he convinces Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, to help him.

The only question for Monsanto is if the Continuing Resolution will last long enough to block the July 1, 2016 implementation date of Vermont’s new GMO labeling law. Continuing Resolutions are normally short-term, 3 months or as long as 6 months. This wouldn’t help Monsanto.

But, Congress may choose to meet its end-of-the-fiscal-year deadline (September 30) by passing a full-year continuing resolution. If this happens, any riders that get attached to the resolution would have a twelve-month lifespan. That could mean a DARK Act that would delay the implementation of Vermont’s GMO labeling law.

2.    They’ll sneak it into the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization bill.

On September 17, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will bring the Senate version of the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization bill to his committee for amendments, debate and vote. The Child Nutrition Act expires on September 30, and should be reauthorized before then for another five years. But, as with the spending bills, if Congress doesn’t finish its reauthorization work it can opt for a short-term extension.

If Sen. Roberts, who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, wanted to do a favor for his Big Ag donors who have given him $791.2k so far this election cycle, he could let Sen. Blunt, slip the DARK Act into the Child Nutrition Act. There would be little anyone could do about that, unless they were willing to risk the future of the school lunch program past September 30, when the legislation expires.

If Monsanto can’t get Sen. Roberts to act alone, the other Senators on the Agriculture Committee could be enlisted in a team effort. With a two-person majority, the committee’s 11 Republicans could vote to attach the DARK Act to the Child Nutrition Act Reauthorization without any Democrat’s support.

3.    They’ll sneak it into another bill as an amendment

If Monsanto doesn’t manage to stick the DARK Act into an appropriations or reauthorization bill anonymously, it can try for an amendment to one of these bills, once either of the bills hits the Senate floor.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) hasn’t been given $1.1M from agribusiness so far this election cycle for nothing. Monsanto and its allies know that the DARK Act could live or die depending on how important it is to Sen. McConnell. As the Senate Majority Leader, he controls which bills go to the floor and which amendments may be offered.

If the DARK Act doesn’t get attached to another piece of legislation by a committee chair or by a vote in committee, it could be brought to the floor as stand-alone legislation. This rarely happens in the Senate, because it takes 60 votes (a bipartisan effort) to cut off debate and avoid a filibuster.

But amendments to legislation are different. An amendment requires only 51 votes to pass—as long as the amendment is germane. (Non-germane amendments require 60 votes.) Of course, what’s “germane” is largely up to the Senate Majority Leader.

The ability to wield these parliamentary tactics gives Sen. McConnell enormous power and will make him the top target of Monsanto’s lobbying machine.

4.    They’ll sneak it into the budget reconciliation bill.

The FY 2016 budget passed by Congress earlier this year allows for a “budget reconciliation” bill to be considered and passed by majority vote—only 51 votes in the Senate.  The bill can also be amended with only 51 votes.

For Monsanto’s sneak attack strategy, the catch is that, under the rules of this reconciliation, the underlying provisions of a reconciliation bill must have a “budget effect.” It’s very difficult to imagine Monsanto being able to make the case that passing the DARK Act could save the government money. However, the rule can be broken with 60 Senators voting to override an objection.

The “budget reconciliation” bill is optional, so it’s likely that Congress won’t act on it until 2016.

When it comes to the DARK Act, will consumers be at the table? Or, as our Senate staffer friend suggested, on the menu? We don’t know yet. But we do know which Senators might be able to give Monsanto a hand with a “sneak attack.” Please read and sign our petition.

Fraudulent. And Illegal.


You’ve heard it over and over again from Monsanto’s public relations machine: GMOs have been thoroughly tested and proven safe.

You know it isn’t true. But unfortunately, many people—and many U.S. lawmakers—have heard only that side of the story. And they’ve heard it so often it’s engrained in their psyches.

It’s up to us to counter Monsanto’s message. In the media. In meetings with Congress members. In phone calls and emails to Congress members.

Thankfully, Steven M. Druker, executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity and author of “Altered Genes, Twisted Truth, How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public,” has made it easier for you to become a messenger of the truth. Druker has taken key points from his 528-page book and created a short 30-point argument for why the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s decision to allow GMO foods, untested and unlabeled, into the marketplace was fraudulent and illegal. Druker says:

In reality, FDA decision-makers disregarded the input of the agency’s own scientists, covered up their warnings about the risks, lied about the facts and, despite pretensions to the contrary, have failed to conduct any genuine scientific reviews at all (a fact even acknowledged by FDA officials). Without such frauds, GE foods could never have come to market; and they could not remain there if the frauds became widely known. Moreover, the FDA’s policy on GE foods violates federal food safety law, and these novel products are on the market illegally.

Scientists: EPA Science “Flawed,” GMOs Should Be Labeled


An article in the New England Journal of Medicine is calling on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to delay the recently approved use of the Dow Chemical herbicide Enlist Duo. Published this month, the article further recommends labeling genetically modified (GM) foods to track new food allergies and assess effects of chemical herbicides. Previous GM crop reviews have focused on genetic aspects of biotechnology, but called for new risk-assessment tools and post-marketing surveillance. The suggestions have been ignored, although herbicide use has skyrocketed, and glyphosate, one component of Enlist Duo, has been declared a probable human carcinogen. The other component, 2,4-D, has been declared a possible human carcinogen.


GMOs, Herbicides, and Public Health

The New England Journal of Medicine
by Philip J. Landrigan, M.D., and Charles Benbrook, Ph.D.

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not high on most physicians’ worry lists. If we think at all about biotechnology, most of us probably focus on direct threats to human health, such as prospects for converting pathogens to biologic weapons or the implications of new technologies for editing the human germline. But while those debates simmer, the application of biotechnology to agriculture has been rapid and aggressive. The vast majority of the corn and soybeans grown in the United States are now genetically engineered. Foods produced from GM crops have become ubiquitous. And unlike regulatory bodies in 64 other countries, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require labeling of GM foods.

Two recent developments are dramatically changing the GMO landscape. First, there have been sharp increases in the amounts and numbers of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops, and still further increases — the largest in a generation — are scheduled to occur in the next few years. Second, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified glyphosate, the herbicide most widely used on GM crops, as a “probable human carcinogen”1 and classified a second herbicide, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), as a “possible human carcinogen.”2

The application of genetic engineering to agriculture builds on the ancient practice of selective breeding. But unlike traditional selective breeding, genetic engineering vastly expands the range of traits that can be moved into plants and enables breeders to import DNA from virtually anywhere in the biosphere. Depending on the traits selected, genetically engineered crops can increase yields, thrive when irrigated with salty water, or produce fruits and vegetables resistant to mold and rot.

The National Academy of Sciences has twice reviewed the safety of GM crops — in 2000 and 2004.3 Those reviews, which focused almost entirely on the genetic aspects of biotechnology, concluded that GM crops pose no unique hazards to human health. They noted that genetic transformation has the potential to produce unanticipated allergens or toxins and might alter the nutritional quality of food. Both reports recommended development of new risk-assessment tools and postmarketing surveillance. Those recommendations have largely gone unheeded.

Herbicide resistance is the main characteristic that the biotechnology industry has chosen to introduce into plants. Corn and soybeans with genetically engineered tolerance to glyphosate (Roundup) were first introduced in the mid-1990s. These “Roundup-Ready” crops now account for more than 90% of the corn and soybeans planted in the United States.4 Their advantage, especially in the first years after introduction, is that they greatly simplify weed management. Farmers can spray herbicide both before and during the growing season, leaving their crops unharmed.

But widespread adoption of herbicide-resistant crops has led to overreliance on herbicides and, in particular, on glyphosate.5 In the United States, glyphosate use has increased by a factor of more than 250 — from 0.4 million kg in 1974 to 113 million kg in 2014. Global use has increased by a factor of more than 10. Not surprisingly, glyphosate-resistant weeds have emerged and are found today on nearly 100 million acres in 36 states. Fields must now be treated with multiple herbicides, including 2,4-D, a component of the Agent Orange defoliant used in the Vietnam War.

The first of the two developments that raise fresh concerns about the safety of GM crops is a 2014 decision by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to approve Enlist Duo, a new combination herbicide comprising glyphosate plus 2,4-D. Enlist Duo was formulated to combat herbicide resistance. It will be marketed in tandem with newly approved seeds genetically engineered to resist glyphosate, 2,4-D, and multiple other herbicides. The EPA anticipates that a 3-to-7-fold increase in 2,4-D use will result.

In our view, the science and the risk assessment supporting the Enlist Duo decision are flawed. The science consisted solely of toxicologic studies commissioned by the herbicide manufacturers in the 1980s and 1990s and never published, not an uncommon practice in U.S. pesticide regulation. These studies predated current knowledge of low-dose, endocrine-mediated, and epigenetic effects and were not designed to detect them. The risk assessment gave little consideration to potential health effects in infants and children, thus contravening federal pesticide law. It failed to consider ecologic impact, such as effects on the monarch butterfly and other pollinators. It considered only pure glyphosate, despite studies showing that formulated glyphosate that contains surfactants and adjuvants is more toxic than the pure compound.

The second new development is the determination by the IARC in 2015 that glyphosate is a “probable human carcinogen”1 and 2,4-D a “possible human carcinogen.”2 These classifications were based on comprehensive assessments of the toxicologic and epidemiologic literature that linked both herbicides to dose-related increases in malignant tumors at multiple anatomical sites in animals and linked glyphosate to an increased incidence of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in humans.

These developments suggest that GM foods and the herbicides applied to them may pose hazards to human health that were not examined in previous assessments. We believe that the time has therefore come to thoroughly reconsider all aspects of the safety of plant biotechnology. The National Academy of Sciences has convened a new committee to reassess the social, economic, environmental, and human health effects of GM crops. This development is welcome, but the committee’s report is not expected until at least 2016.

In the meantime, we offer two recommendations. First, we believe the EPA should delay implementation of its decision to permit use of Enlist Duo. This decision was made in haste. It was based on poorly designed and outdated studies and on an incomplete assessment of human exposure and environmental effects. It would have benefited from deeper consideration of independently funded studies published in the peer-reviewed literature. And it preceded the recent IARC determinations on glyphosate and 2,4-D. Second, the National Toxicology Program should urgently assess the toxicology of pure glyphosate, formulated glyphosate, and mixtures of glyphosate and other herbicides.

Finally, we believe the time has come to revisit the United States’ reluctance to label GM foods. Labeling will deliver multiple benefits. It is essential for tracking emergence of novel food allergies and assessing effects of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops. It would respect the wishes of a growing number of consumers who insist they have a right to know what foods they are buying and how they were produced. And the argument that there is nothing new about genetic rearrangement misses the point that GM crops are now the agricultural products most heavily treated with herbicides and that two of these herbicides may pose risks of cancer. We hope, in light of this new information, that the FDA will reconsider labeling of GM foods and couple it with adequately funded, long-term postmarketing surveillance.

GMOs: Expert Opinions


The promoters and purveyors of GMOs have spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying anyone who questions the safety of their products as ignorant, alarmist and “anti-science.”

So they’re no doubt stewing over an article written last week—by a medical doctor and a scientist—outlining in detail why these experts are so concerned about the GMO foods and ingredients that now permeate our food system.

In an article published August 20, in the New England Journal of Medicine, Philip J. Landrigan, M.D., and Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., present rational and reasoned, science-based evidence supporting their recommendations that 1), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) not allow the use of Dow’s Enlist Duo, a toxic combo of glyphosate and 2-4,D until further study, and 2), that GMOs be labeled.

On the issue of 2,4-D, Dr. Landigran and Dr. Benbrook write:

In our view, the science and the risk assessment supporting the Enlist Duo decision are flawed. The science consisted solely of toxicologic studies commissioned by the herbicide manufacturers in the 1980s and 1990s and never published, not an uncommon practice in U.S. pesticide regulation. These studies predated current knowledge of low-dose, endocrine-mediated, and epigenetic effects and were not designed to detect them. The risk assessment gave little consideration to potential health effects in infants and children, thus contravening federal pesticide law. It failed to consider ecologic impact, such as effects on the monarch butterfly and other pollinators. It considered only pure glyphosate, despite studies showing that formulated glyphosate that contains surfactants and adjuvants is more toxic than the pure compound.

And on labels?

[Labeling]is essential for tracking emergence of novel food allergies and assessing effects of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops.

New Report Takes Cheap-Shot At Organic Foods With “Recall” Scare


A new “report” of data intended to be used as propaganda, in this case against foods that are NOT genetically modified, a company called Stericycle has produced data that it says proves organic food recalls are up. The news of the report, of course was recently spread by the U.S. corporate media as a subtle propaganda campaign to directly condemn organic foods in hopes to offsetting consumer growing confidence and demand for organics. All no doubt to the delight and support of GMO food producers like Monsanto.

No one should be surprised by this, considering that Stericyle, a “global” publicly traded company who also owns Bio Systems, is also the U.S.’s leading company for ‘sharps management’ services. In other words Stericyle profits immensely from selling needle and syringe disposal plastic containers to hospitals globally! This statement is from their own site:

“Today, we operate in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, and employ more than 18,000 people worldwide. Our primary business in each of these markets focuses on providing integrated solutions for the management of medical wastes.”

It is thus in their interest for people to use hospitals and remain sick since they are deeply intertwined with the profits surrounding hospitals and sickness.

It is no wonder therefore that Stericycle would play such a central role in putting out information that ignores the overall insignificance of this data because overall when you take into account the full picture- that when you consider the markedly increase in demand for organic foods, the recalls have actually not changed at all. The Organic Trade Association has already come out and flatly called out the lies put out by Stericycle. Senior Director Gwendolyn Wyard has stated;

“A key point to keep in mind is that an overall increase in organic recalls between 2012 and 2015 would not be surprising — not because organic food is less safe, but because of the dramatic increase in organic food sales and purchases that we’ve been seeing in this country,”

Vice President of Stericycle, Kevin Pollack quietly admits that the reason for the rise in recalls is “partly” because of the enormous increase in the demand for organic foods. Despite this quiet admission Pollack goes on to spread organic food psyop phobia stating:

“What’s striking is that since 2012, all organic recalls have been driven by bacterial contamination, like salmonella, listeria and hepatitis A, rather than a problem with a label,” … “This is a fairly serious and really important issue because a lot of consumers just aren’t aware of it.”

And just like that, Pollack leaves it to the U.S. corporate media to spread the propaganda from there. The propaganda here is subtle and transparent to anyone not paying attention, but is quite obvious to anyone who is. The message being conveyed here is that genetically modified foods are somehow safer than organic foods and that organic (non-GMO) foods are becoming increasingly “dangerous”!

Let’s consider a few things. Let’s all remove our Orwellian hats for a moment. First, there is no such thing per-se as “organic” food. We all call it organic, but more importantly it’s natural and it’s real. Everything else that is not real, natural or organic is fake, genetically modified, synthetic, or not real. Sadly the GMO psyop is so deep today that the control system has everyone thinking that genetically modifying things is a normal thing to do and somehow not genetically modifying things open you up to danger, illness, death and destruction.

Pro-GMO Psyop Stages

As we review the first level of this secret pro-GMO psyop we consider that the first intent of this propaganda piece is to make that “weird” special category of food called “organics” seem like it perhaps doesn’t belong in our world. It’s the culprit of bacterial spreading and it is therefore a problem for humanity. Organic foods are being painted as somehow bad for you.

The second level of this pro-GMO psyop is that once the problem is offered- “organic foods are responsible for spreading bacteria”- then we must come up with a solution. That solution of course, not mentioned here is to perhaps cut down on organics, or maybe get rid of them all together. The replacement problem-solving food of course is genetically modified foods, the one with the tiny microscopic labels that no one can read with the paragraph sized list of ingredients of things most of us can’t pronounce.

The third level of this pro-GMO psyop is that nowhere in these corporate media stories or in the issued report are the dangers of GMO foods mentioned. Let’s not forget that GMO foods are banned in many countries and for good reason. That’s because genetically modified foods are dangerous. Yet these dangers are completely ignored to the delight of Monsanto, Syngenta and other GMO giants.

Health and safety is not something to debate. I would rather risk a self-limited bacterial infection which a healthy immune system can take on, than to alter my DNA and ingest a cancer-causing and other chronic human disease-causing food. The fact is that outside of nature’s natural “organic” foods there are no safe choices. The truth they don’t want you to know is that all GMOs should be banned forever. This is about science, health, common sense and morality.

The controllers layer these deceptions and then point you in the opposite direction. So instead of looking at the GMO problem they want everyone instead fearing organic foods.

Have you considered that perhaps this is the very early stages of a future aggressive campaign against organic foods? Have you considered that perhaps this is a propaganda beta-test to see how people react to the story? I believe this is very possible. These subtle stories usually grow in size later on. Perhaps later on they’ll stage a massive “out-break” to be blamed on “organics”. The public would then be forced (vaccine-style) to eat GMO foods. Imagine that!

Remember the measles outbreak psyop of 2014? We all saw how it morphed into forced vaccination bills (SB277) in states like California, which if it sticks will surely be a template for an attempt at a federal mandatory bill. Don’t forget the measles story came out in small sections for months throughout 2014. The mainstream media kept trying different angles on it. Then by the end of the year they switched from Measles to Ebola and gauged everyone’s reaction on that. Before you knew it they employed Hollywood celebrity mocking “anti-vaxxers”, funded several “pro-vaccine” campaigns and the rest is history.

So don’t be fooled by subtle seemingly innocent stories about a new “report” that suggests that organics food recalls are up and how “serious” this is. This is just propaganda from the same people who have given us many other recent “studies”, new “data”, and “reports” always spinning the narrative sometimes slowly, sometimes more aggressively toward the profit of choice.

We should all be aware by now that essentially all scientific research of  medical claims are absolutely “untrustable and fraudulent“. Especially when we observe the synchronistical spread of these study results by the mainstream media only to later on observe that these study conclusions seem to always have political or corporate profit ramifications.

So nothing should surprise us from the empire that tells us that a “new study” shows cancer is just “bad luck“. Or that everything needs to be genetically controlled instead of considering the environmental factor like eating healthy and pursuing a healthy lifestyle so that you can minimize your trips to the doctor and not waste so much money on hospital bills.


Eating healthy I believe is the most important thing you can do to dump doctors and expensive tyrannical medical-hospital systems out of your life. Health begins during conception, continues after birth and then throughout your life. This is why it is so important to avoid anything that is unnatural as much as possible.

Don’t let a multi-trillion dollar vaccine maker or pharmaceutical company tell you their GMO food, drug or vaccine is “safe”. They only tell you that because “safe” claims means trillions $$ of dollars for them especially if they can get government to force you to take their product.

Aside from pursuing personal health as a token of self ownership and self-responsibility, let’s continue to pursue solutions in the form of inter-dependence. Share health knowledge with one another and help make healthy foods available to one another. If you can now is the time to grow your own food and become familiar with what medicinal values organic foods have. The most important goal is to boost your immune system and thus strive to make government’s medical tyrannical system obsolete since many diseases are based on functional compromise of the body and a depleted, improperly working immune systems.

I believe doctors including many medical doctors will eventually go to where the demand is, given that most of them are well meaning and in their hearts are committed to evidence-based medicine. Many of them will begin to see the greater agenda at play and there are many signs this is already happening.

Ultimately, health is an individual thing and there is no other topic that requires self accountability and responsibility than your own health. As always it starts with you. Eating healthy organic food is one of the easiest and most powerful and effective things people can do to start dumping the control system. It’s no wonder they are slowly preparing their propaganda for what appears to be a long but eventually losing battle.

Leading Medical Journal Wants GMO Labeling

gmo labelThe topic of GMO labeling is one of long standing, one that is seeing a clear divide in current media. Should foods in the United States require GMO labeling, following suit of many other countries throughout the world? If there’s nothing to hide, then why not label foods? The argument is that GMO foods are no better or worse for health than non-GMOs, and that labeling may confuse consumers and drive down profit for numerous food manufacturers. The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) is coming to the aid of labeling proponents, calling for the labeling of GMO foods in a recent perspective article. This bold step by a leading and respected medical journal may be the tipping point toward helping us know exactly what’s in our food.

NEJM Says “Yes” to GMO Labeling

Scientific consensus is that GMO foods are harmless in any amount, and the labeling of foods containing GM ingredients is worthless and cumbersome to food companies. This simply isn’t true, because there are numerous studies indicating GM food to be dangerous, or at least slightly irritating, to human and animal health. The NEJM says that GMO labeling “is essential for tracking emergence of novel food allergies and assessing effects of chemical herbicides applied to GM crops.” [1] It calls for the respect of consumers who want labeling of foods containing GM ingredients. It’s safe to say that in not doing so, consumers become distrustful of certain brands who refuse to label or lobby against labeling. An estimated $100 million has been spent by the food industry in lobbying for less transparency in just one year. [2] So, if it’s the money companies think they’ll miss out on if they do label, they’re likely to also miss it by not labeling.

But it isn’t just about the genetically-altered material that’s contained within GM foods. The NEJM further states: “And the argument that there is nothing new about genetic rearrangement misses the point that GM crops are now the agricultural products most heavily treated with herbicides and that two of these herbicides may pose risks of cancer.” Even the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is delaying a permit for Enlist Duo, a combination herbicide that is said to fight herbicide resistance. It has, however, been approved for use in a number of states. [3] It’s a good thing, too, considering that all chemical herbicides present a real threat to human health. Glyphosate, or Roundup, is a common herbicide that is a probable human carcinogen, so one can only imagine what Enlist Duo–an herbicide that is more powerful than glyphosate–poses. To give you a clue as to how pervasive glyphosate is, research is showing that the herbicide is being found in human breast milk. [4]

Vote With Your Pocketbook

The best way you can let the food industry know you want GMO labeling and/or complete absence of GMOs from the food supply is to purchase organic. Any processed food you buy should be certified organic by the USDA, because these will not contain GMOs, pesticides, or any chemical ingredient of any kind. The more money that goes toward organic food, the more the industry takes notice. Most produce is not GM–yet. Still, conventional corn and soy are commonly GMO, so if you consume these foods, make sure they’re organic.

GMO Propagandist Who Said ‘Trust Science’ Got Funds From Monsanto


Investigation reveals damaging conflict of interest despite claims of no Monsanto funding. Report by Claire Robinson and Jonathan Matthews at GM Watch

In what appears to be an exercise in damage limitation, an article in the journal Nature has disclosed that Kevin Folta, a plant scientist at the University of Florida, received a US$25,000 grant last year from Monsanto. Monsanto noted that the money “may be used at your discretion in support of your research and outreach projects”, according to the journal.

Folta is active on the GMO-promoting website GMO Answers. The website is “funded by the members of The Council for Biotechnology Information, which includes BASF, Bayer CropScience, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont, Monsanto Company and Syngenta.” The site describes Folta as an “independent expert” and to date has not disclosed his Monsanto funding.

The Folta-Monsanto collaboration was revealed in an investigation by the food transparency campaign, US Right to Know. The investigation yielded 4,600 pages of e-mails and other records from Folta.

Folta says that the funds are earmarked for a proposed University of Florida programme on communicating biotechnology. But according to the article in Nature, the documents show that Monsanto paid for Folta’s travel to speak to US politicians, the media, farmers, and students.

US Right to Know launched its investigation of academic researchers after it noticed that several had answered questions about GM crops on the GMO Answers website. US Right to Know considers the industry-funded site, which is managed by public relations firm Ketchum of New York, to be a “straight-up marketing tool to spin GMOs in a positive light”. It is now seeking the records of public-sector researchers — who are subject to freedom-of-information laws — to confirm its suspicions.

It appears from the Nature piece that the emails released by the University of Florida may show that Folta used material provided by Ketchum’s PR people in his GMO Answers’ responses. Folta is quoted as saying of Ketchum’s suggested answers, “I don’t know if I used them, modified them or what.”

What makes the Folta disclosures particularly notable is that to date Folta has gone to great lengths to bat off suggestions that he gets any money from Monsanto, emphasizing that he is an independent scientist working in a public institution and funded from public sources. “I’m paid by the citizens of my state to help them understand science. I’m a shill for science and the land grant university mission,” he commented on one site. On another, when the question of whether he got money from the biotech industry came up, he emphasized how open he is about his funding: “Hey guys, you know you could just reach out and ask… always glad to talk about such things. My research has been funded 100% by public sources, except for a small amount we get for strawberry research… No Monsanto.” Later he elaborates: “Alas, no research money from Monsanto, never any personal compensation for any talks” (our emphasis). That posting was made this year – after the Monsanto funding is now known to have been awarded.

Indeed, only two months ago Kevin Folta declared, “I have nothing to do with Monsanto.”

And as far as we are aware, prior to the article in Nature, Folta has never disclosed anywhere that he has received this funding from Monsanto, even in response to direct questions. This failure to disclose needs to be seen in the context of Folta’s long history of not just aggressively denying receiving any monies at all from Monsanto, even as much as “a dime”, but ridiculing those who suggested otherwise.

Defending Roundup

As well as GMOs, Folta is well known for his aggressive defence of another very lucrative Monsanto product: Roundup. On Twitter and in public talks, Folta has told audiences that he drinks Monsanto’s herbicide formulation, a registered poison. Not only does Roundup come with a warning that it is a poison and should not be taken internally, but it is the subject of ongoing research worldwide for its suspected and proven adverse effects on human and animal health. It’s also a “probable” carcinogen, according to the World Health Organization’s cancer agency IARC. Yet on Twitter, Folta has said that he has drunk it “to demonstrate harmlessness”. On another occasion he declared, “I’m going to tip a freshly-opened pint next week at ISU. No fear here. Trust science.”

What makes these issues so important is that it is clear from the scientific literature, dating back over three decades, that funding has a marked influence on science. This has led to demands for disclosure of industry payments, most notably by scientific journals. It is also recognized that even the provision of free travel and other expenses may compromise integrity and impartiality and that this principle does not only apply to research, but also extends to science communication activities, as in the case of Folta.

Kevin Folta’s impartiality has been challenged many times. He says on GMO Answers, “My answers are 100% consistent with the peer-reviewed literature.” But he has been found to disregard peer-reviewed research, for example, on the nutritional value of organic food, in order to push his biotech agenda.

And now Folta’s apparent failure to give any indication of his Monsanto support until forced to do so has fatally damaged his credibility.

The article Kevin Folta received $25,000 from Monsanto and the image first appeared at GM Watch. See more GMO news there.

Scotland Bans Growing GM Crops

Independent evidence shows GM foods and ingredients harm human health. All nations should ban them.

UN General Assembly measures and international humanitarian laws say all nations are responsible for protecting the health, safety and welfare of their people.

Harmful to human health GMOs should be universally banned. Scotland acted responsibly. More on its action below.

Monsanto and other GMO producers own Congress and US administrations – no matter which party holds power. In late July, House members overwhelmingly passed the Orwellian Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (HR 1599) critics call the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act by a nearly two-to-one margin (275 – 150).

It prohibits state and local authorities from requiring GMO labeling – so consumers can make informed choices whether to buy or avoid them. Center for Food Safety director Andrew Kimbrell said in response:

“Passage of this bill is an attempt by Monsanto and its agribusiness cronies to crush the democratic decision-making of tens of millions of Americans. Corporate influence has won and the voice of the people has been ignored.”

Arguably the measure is unconstitutional – along with permitting the sale of GMO foods and ingredients. Its Preamble mandates “promot(ing) the general welfare” – impossible by allowing the sale of foods and ingredients known to harm human health without at least requiring labels telling consumers what they need to know.

HR 1599 requires Senate approval and Obama’s signature to become law. It looks certain without overwhelming public opposition against it.

EU regulations on GMO foods are stricter than America’s. Proposed new European Commission rules would let individual member states opt out of an EU-approved system.

Competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said “(t)he objective is to give national governments’ view the same weight as scientific advice in the authorisation of GMOs in their territory.”

“This proposal, when it is adopted, will enable member states to address at national level considerations covered by the decision-making process that we use right now.”

“These are new measures and they will provide member states with tools to decide on the use of EU-imported GMOs based on reasons other than risks for health and the environment which will remain assessed by the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA).”

Europe is divided on GMOs. Britain favors them. France, Austria and other EU countries oppose them. Germany’s Environment Ministry wants an unconditional GMO ban.

Minister Barbara Hendricks wants all genetic engineering backdoors blocked. She calls the technology “the wrong track. It is risky for nature and the environment and is not desired by consumers.”

Polls show Western consumers overwhelmingly reject them. Monsanto’s maize MON810 is the only GM crop grown in Europe – in Spain and Portugal.

Greenpeace called the European Commission proposal “farc(ical) because it leaves the current undemocratic system untouched. It would allow the Commission to continue ignoring major opposition to GM crops, despite president Juncker’s promise to allow a majority of EU countries to halt Commission decisions on GMOs.”

Consumers Union asked “what are they afraid of?” Polls consistently show around 90% of Americans favor labeling – 85% say GMO products should never be called “natural.”

It means pure and wholesome from nature – not a corporate scientist’s laboratory. Prohibiting GMOs is threatened by trade agreements like TPP and TTIP.

For now, Scotland intends banning GM crops grown on its soil. Officials call the move environmentally friendly. Minister for the environment, food and rural affairs Richard Lochhead said his nation “is known around the world for our beautiful natural environment – and banning growing genetically modified crops will protect and further enhance our clean, green status.”

“There is no evidence of significant demand for GM products by Scottish consumers and I am concerned that allowing GM crops to be grown in Scotland would damage our clean and green brand, thereby gambling with the future of our £14 billion ($22 billion) food and drink sector.”

Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) Alison Johnstone said “(o)pting out of growing genetically modified crops is the right move for Scotland. Cultivation of GM crops would harm our environment and our reputation for high quality food and drink.”

“GM is not the answer to food security, and would represent further capture of our food by big business. Scotland has huge potential with a diverse mix of smaller-scale producers and community food initiatives, and we need to see those grow further.”

In April, the European Commission OK’d importing 10 new GM crops for the first time since 2013 (for human food and animal feed) – including corn, soybeans, cotton and rapeseed oil.

Universally banning these products along with commonly used toxic chemicals is the only way to keep world food supplies safe to eat.

10 Random Disturbing Facts Most Americans Are Too Fearful To Face


Sometimes you have to put out information in hopes that those who haven’t heard this will at least absorb a fraction of it. If you haven’t heard this and you absorb just one of these random points, I believe that may be enough to cause a major paradigm shift your life or in the life of someone you know. Here are 10 random, mostly recent but some archival information that is factual and verifiable for anyone willing to look it up.

1- Genetically Modified Foods are illegal in many countries for health and medical reasons all the while the U.S. passes laws making GMO labeling illegal. You may be thinking, say what?  That’s right. U.S. citizens are being propagandized daily and are being practically forced to blindly consume GMOs while countries like Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Madeira, New Zealand, Peru, Australia, Russia, France and Switzerland have all booted Monsanto and their GMO crops from their countries. That’s like being booted out of a town for being a rapist and child molester only to have that same person settle into the next town over and become a grade school teacher or pastor. Now imagine the citizens of that other town having a law forced on them that says rapists and child molesters must be allowed to teach little kids and run churches. That’s what we’re talking about here.

While humanity in other countries wake up fully to the dangers of GMO foods, Monsanto and other GMO food producers are having a feast in the U.S. buying out politicians, distorting news, research and evidence that proves GMO foods are directly linked to cancer. Like a scene from a bad movie only it’s not a movie it life. Actually it’s YOUR life if you are in the United States dealing with this nightmare.

As bizarre as it seems, only in the U.S. do criminal corporations like Monsanto enjoy the benefits of the support of the political and legal system. A bird’s eye view of the situation clearly shows how corrupt and evil the control system in the United States really is. Sadly, most Americans have no idea that they are being lied to every day and lured into eating dangerous cancer causing and health destroying food just so that someone can profit from your disease later on.

2- As a result of ‘Act of 1871‘ by the 41st Congress, the United States ‘Corporation’ was created to trample the original Republic. Shockingly, this fraudulent synthetic corporate government entity is the only “United States” most people in America know today. And this non-governmental corporate entity covering a 10 square mile grid in Washington D.C. parades as a sovereign legitimate government and has been doing so for over 100 years.

Of all the things that need to be repaired and reversed in the United States, this one issue one of the most important root issue for people to wrap their heads around.

Imagine the impact of getting a real grassroots movement of people to push awareness of the truth of the current District of Columbia U.S. Corporate Government and the corresponding imitation Constitution OF the United States (instead of “For” the United States as stated in the original organic document).

This is one of those issues that most people don’t know where to start, how to apply this idea, and how to lead this idea in a meaningful way so they simply give up. The fact is that people are afraid to face this mega-sized issue with overwhelming implications for the average person.

3- “7 countries in 5 years”- This wide open confession came straight out of the mouth of U.S. General Wesley Clark years after the illegal invasion of Iraq. The General openly spilled the beans on the U.S. military’s plan to illegally invade 7 countries in the Middle East under the lie of the war on terror. Shockingly to this day no war crimes trials have taken place. No one has been executed, convicted or imprisoned for these massive war crimes against humanity. Shockingly, the criminals even still make TV appearances and prance around the country offering their opinions and enjoying a comfortable life appearing at events and speaking.

In fact, General Wesley Clark himself ended up being promoted to lead NATO units in the Middle East. He has even made recent propaganda appearances on TV playing into the Jade Helm “master the human domain” psyop teasing freedom lovers with Hitler-like rhetoric about caging anyone who doesn’t agree with the U.S. government!

4- The U.S. military and its defense contractors have over 150+ live and legitimate patents for spraying the sky with nano-particles all the while the masses are told it’s “conspiracies”. Those still unaware of this may be shocked to know these patents are not even hidden from the public. You can read them all for yourself. Despite this open knowledge these programs roll on comfortably as we have observed their spraying techniques change from various forms of chemtrails to aerosolized plumes/injections or chembombs to a mixture of both.

Astoundingly, we are now living at a time when we are surrounded by a generation of young Americans that think tic-tac-toe is normal in the sky. They think that crazy lines in the sky are part of nature. They see advertisements with lines in the sky and think nothing of it. They have no idea that not long ago there was a time when there were no lines in the sky at all. They have no concept of blue skies and clear starry nights. Shockingly and sadly an integral part of this lack of knowledge is the fear of knowing. More than any other topic, probably the spraying of our skies is cloaked in fear and anxiety of what to do if it is true. Many people would rather not know.

5- As briefly mentioned in #3, the United States Military is currently conducting an admitted A.I. psychological operation on the human domain as people carry on as usual. It’s called Jade Helm and right now learning more about Jade Helm for many Americans means putting down that remote control, turning off that ballgame, pausing the video game or missing their favorite TV show. It takes work to research this and more importantly the insecurity that comes with knowing that our own military is studying you the individual to control you is again too profound to really understand for some. They might ask, why would the military do this? Not knowing that the new world order has been planned for over 100 years now.

This is another issue that is too overwhelming for the average person to understand or more importantly face head-on. SOCOM documents exposed by researchers are clear about the intention of Jade Helm Jade 2 software and no matter how much you ignore it, it’s still here, it’s very real and it’s in motion as we speak.

6- The entire debt based fiat worthless paper money circulating in the U.S. is supplied and controlled by a private corporation with no legal authority to do so. We call them the Federal Reserve. It’s the illegal private banking system created officially in 1913 under the ‘Federal Reserve Act’ which Congress gave a green light to. This single act essentially handed the United States of America to a gang of private bankers with no accountability to the people. Along with the Act of 1871, this Federal Reserve Act is also one of the most significant and horrific turning points in the history of America. An act that accounts for many of the problems and sufferings in American for now over 100 years.

If enough people could finally wrap their heads around this single reality, that a private illegal mob of banksters have psyched out and enslaved Americans, fooling them into accepting their fake fiat currency while ensuring their perpetual enslavement, the full-on revolution would start today.

7- Throughout the history of humanity people do things by planning it out, this simple act or organizing is considered bizarre, unlikely and improbable by a generation of brainwashed people controlled by one hypnotic phrase- “conspiracy”! That’s right. You may be reading this and thinking this refers to you. The simple phrase “conspiracy” or “conspiracy theory” has singlehandedly mind-controlled millions of Americans like no other word or phrase has. Unfortunately there is no way around it. “Conspiracy” is a substitute word for an otherwise ordinary act of planning or coordinating. Something all people do especially groups like corporations and governments. You MUST plan, organize, or “conspire” to do things. That’s how things get done!

8- The U.S. has been caught numerous times militarily defending, arming, supplying and training ISIS fighters. Here we are at the one year anniversary of the ISIS super psyop American TV marketing campaign and today the ISIS psyop has been blown wide open more often than the amount of times the global warming movement has been exposed as lies. These reports trapping U.S. and Israeli (NATO) governments in boldface staged lies and capturing solid evidence of their support for ISIS have gone completely ignored and censored by U.S. mainstream media to keep the ISIS psyop narrative going in the minds of Americans.

The situation is so controlled and so propagandized that even if every member of ISIS went on TV tomorrow exclusively expressing their partnership with CIA and Mossad, the very next day U.S. mainstream media will present another ISIS story telling you how much they are the enemy and need to be defeated. Make no mistake, this control system is completely immune and entirely unfazed by truth, hard evidence and hard facts.

9- Turning back the clock- 5 Israeli men were caught, arrested, fingerprinted and detained on September 11th 2001 after they were celebrating the destruction of the world trade center seconds after the buildings were destroyed, while the buildings burned AND while the rest of America watched in shock and tears. These men were later mysteriously released back to Israel where they bragged on camera about being in New York City to “document the event”. The history of Israeli entities involvement in the 9/11 attacks are particularly concrete yet the frightening reality is that today’s U.S. mainstream media acts like none of this ever happened.

For this reason it’s always good to remind everyone that this is very real. The individuals names are Sivan Kurzberg, Paul Kurzberg, Yaron Shonvel, Oded Ellner and Omer Gavriel Marmari and they were given a clean pass back to Israel by then Chief of Justice Department Michael Chertoff. Of course Chertoff would later become Director of George Bush’s Homeland Security and play a significant role in writing the Patriot Act. Plainly put, one of the head masterminds of 9/11 essentially singlehandedly released a handful of key 9/11 suspects and allowed them to fly peacefully and freely back to their Israel homeland to brag about what they did.

10- In the U.S, like it was with Hitler’s Germany, propaganda is perfectly legal. Most Americans have no idea this is the case. They don’t realize that the U.S. corporate fraudulent government can legally lie to you every single day to get you to believe whatever they want you to believe and then turn around behind closed doors and laugh at you for believing their legal lies. Try telling that to most Americans and see how they look at you.

This is another example of a hard-to-handle lie that is pushed on Americans every day and the average working American has no time to truly wrap their heads around this stunning fact so they bury their heads in the sand instead, unwilling to look at the issue because the fear they won’t know what to do with the information.

It’s no wonder that today TV shows and comedic rants are often shaped to put a positive slant on lying. To trivialize the seriousness and the consequences of lying. They even make lying seem like an evil necessity or even a cool trend. Most people are completely unaware of these subliminal messages that endorse the control of a government whose survival is dependent on continuous lies and deceit.


Let’s keep sharing the information and forcing people to look at this information. These are just 10 random issues I felt are important but there could be another 10 here just as easily. Information is spreading and people are getting this. Sometimes it takes hitting rock-bottom before people take action and start to think differently. Whatever drives someone you can always be sure that pushing the information will help accelerate this process. Let’s keep doing that and if you agree share this information with someone and give them something to think about.
