The War of the Empire has many faces
The ‘war on terror’ has become nameless since our administration changed. But it is the same war, it has the same goals and it is as unwinnable as it always was. But certainly there are other ways of conquering the planet, says Washington. And so they impose the huge industries with their humungous profits on the entire world, corporations like Monsanto, Cargill, Dow, Bunge and others, giants that impose their own laws on world-wide agriculture and their goal is to make us eat only what they profit from.
Through lies and total lack of concern for the final outcome, they insert their hired crooks, their representatives, in top positions everywhere, make deals with corrupt governments all over the world, deals that make farmers the innocent victims of a world-wide scam. The result is disaster for the farmers and the poor people all over the world and enormous power for the Biotech Companies that suck the blood out of the earth and out of the people who used to cultivate it with their own millennia-old and environmentally safe methods.
Monsanto is just about the most callous, the most harmful, the most insidious of the whole gang of predators who are out to get on top of the world – and who are ruining it savagely in the process. They are busy ruining the environment irredeemably and the health of the inhabitants of this threatened world. Global warming doesn’t even have to play out its role, the biotech industry will play the part of the Grim Reaper, mowing down everything that does not add to their profits, ruining people’s health, playing hell with the earth’s ecosystems and biodiversity that has served the planet for millennia in a world that was mostly safe from predators, the kind of sharks that devour their prey without any afterthoughts.
Monsanto plays the part as the leader of the gang of predators in the destruction of age-old agriculture that provided the world population with natural foods that fitted into the ecosystems of the region where they were grown. And they go about this destruction with the fierce cruelty of the shark, with NO consideration for anything except the instant and short-term profit of the predators themselves.
Below are excerpts from a couple of essays, facts that need to be brought to the attention of the people of the world.
See Stephen Lendman: 'Food Standards Guidelines' Threaten Human Health - Codex Alimentarius (CA) serves corporate interests
*The Codex Alimentarius Commission was created in 1963 by the FAO (Food and Agricultural Organization of the UN)
“Whatever its founding purpose,* CA is much different today because corporate interests control it - global pharmaceutical, food, and banking giants in league with complicit UN and government agencies to promote GMOs over healthy foods, and drugs over natural remedies by restricting or banning vitamin and dietary supplements, except the ones they control.
“On December 31, 2009, Codex standards will be globally mandated unless legal challenges prevent it. In force, they'll override food and drug laws of all member countries, including consumer protection laws and America's 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). It classifies nutrients and herbs as foods, sets no dosage limits, and permits the sale of all dietary supplements unless expressly proved unsafe. Codex rules reverse things by prohibiting everything NOT proved safe, including high potency, therapeutically effective nutrients and supplements.
“In contrast, about 300 dangerous food additives will be allowed, including aspartame, BHA, BHT, potassium bromate, and tartrazine. New guidelines will authorize the worldwide proliferation of unlabeled GMO foods, drugs, and ingredients, known to harm human health.”
There is also another important point to make in President Obama’s choice of Michael Taylor to head the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Michael Taylor is the notorious revolving-door man who, during the George W. Bush era switched jobs between a high-level post for Monsanto and working for the government agencies that are supposed to regulate the food industry, such as Monsanto.
See ‘Monsanto's Man in the Obama Administration’ - By ISABELLA KENFIELD
“Michael R. Taylor’s appointment by the Obama administration to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on July 7th sparked immediate debate and even outrage among many food and agriculture researchers, NGOs and activists. The Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto Corp. from 1998 until 2001, Taylor exemplifies the revolving door between the food industry and the government agencies that regulate it. He is reviled for shaping and implementing the government’s favorable agricultural biotechnology policies during the Clinton administration.
Yet what has slipped under everyone’s radar screen is Taylor’s involvement in setting U.S. policy on agricultural assistance in Africa. In collusion with the Rockefeller and Bill and Melinda Gates foundations, Taylor is once again the go-between man for Monsanto and the U.S. government, this time with the goal to open up African markets for genetically-modified (GM) seed and agrochemicals.”
There are other proofs coming up constantly concerning the danger of GM foods.
See Jeffrey Smith ‘Lyme/Autism Group Blasts Genetically Modified Foods as Dangerous’
“Stop eating dangerous genetically modified (GM) foods! That's the upshot of the Lyme Induced Autism (LIA) Foundation's position paper released today.” (August 25, 2009)
“The five main GM foods are soy, corn, cotton, canola, and sugar beets. Their derivatives are found in more than 70 percent of the foods in the supermarket. The primary reason the plants are engineered is to allow them to drink poison. They're inserted with bacterial genes that allow them to survive otherwise deadly doses of poisonous herbicide. Biotech companies sell the seed and herbicide as a package deal. Roundup Ready crops survive sprays of Roundup. Liberty Link crops survive Liberty. US farmers use hundreds of millions of pounds more herbicide because of these herbicide-tolerant crops, and the higher toxic residues end up inside of us.”
The following essay by Siv O’Neall was written right after the first airing of the documentary ‘The World According to Monsanto’ (Le monde selon Monsanto) by French journalist and film maker Marie-Monique Robin on the French/German television channel ARTE. In view of several recent events, among them the huge threat of the upcoming decision of a global mandate on Codex Alimentarius, we feel that it is of interest to republish this essay. If Codex Alimentarius is globally mandated, it would spell disaster for human health and victory for the Biotech Industry and their callous drive for maximized profits without taking into consideration any proven facts about the dangers to humans and to the future of the planet
