GMO: Monsanto’s Worst Nightmare Looks Like Becoming Reality

For years the corporate agriculture industry (Big Ag) cartel and, corporate payroll scientists and opportunistic politicians have been pushing the idea that to switch from traditionally propagated crops to genetically modified organism was the only way to feed the world’s burgeoning millions.

The tame scientists who either worked for Big Ag or were on government funded research programmes were happy to produce doctored data suggesting that Genetically Modified (GM) food crops were completely safe for human consumption. Many independent biologists and geneticists disagreed but their work was derided and the strongest critics of Big Ag were marginalized or found their careers had been steered into a dead end (a familiar story to those of us who have observed the journey of the sciences from open minded inquiry to something resembling a medieval church sect.)

But in what marks a major shift in the way the wider public consume information, the citizen journalists and ‘crazy conspiracy theorists’ of new media have gradually chipped away at the completely fabricated case for GM food crops.

Some, like this blog, have focused on the economic and social consequences of handing control of the food supply to a handful of corporate enterprises with very dodgy track records on ethical matters. Others who are more appropriately qualified to challenge the misinformation and manipulated statistics put out by corporate scientists reported on how data had been faked and trials rigged.

And now it seems the tide is turning against Big Ag and their lackeys:

Monsanto’s Worst Fear May Be Coming True
Jonathan Latham, Independent Science News

The decision of the Chipotle restaurant chain to make its product lines GMO-free is not most people’s idea of a world-historic event. Especially since Chipotle, by US standards, is not a huge operation. A clear sign that the move is significant, however, is that Chipotle’s decision was met with a tidal-wave of establishment media abuse. Chipotle has been called irresponsible, anti-science, irrational, and much more by the Washington Post, Time Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, and many others. A business deciding to give consumers what they want was surely never so contentious.

The media’s heavy criticism of Chipotle has an explanation that is important to the future of GMOs. The cause of it is that there has long been an incipient crack in the solid public front that the food industry has presented on the GMO issue. The crack originates from the fact that while agribusiness sees GMOs as central to their business future, the brand-oriented and customer-sensitive ends of the food supply chain do not.

The brands who sell to the public, such as Nestle, Coca-Cola, Kraft, etc., are therefore much less committed to GMOs. They have gone along with their use, probably because they wish to maintain good relations with agribusiness, who are their allies and their suppliers. Possibly also they see a potential for novel products in a GMO future.

However, over the last five years, as the reputation of GMOs has come under increasing pressure in the US, the cost to food brands of ignoring the growing consumer demand for GMO-free products has increased. They might not say so in public, but the sellers of top brands have little incentive to take the flack for selling GMOs.

American GM Wheat Losing Out To Russian Organic Wheat In World Markets
We’ve been trying to get the truth out on GM crops, loved by American corporate business, rent-a-quote scientists and politicians for several years. The massed ranks of big money and big politics are still ranged against us but it seems that one again we the New Media are winning. The more the ‘experts’, professors and politicians tell us genetically modified crops are good, the mor suspicious we become.

"Anti-Putin" Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions

When I posted a blog yesterday, Game and set to Putin (it wasn’t quite match) which commented on how while Russia has shrugged off the American and EU sanctions, European farmers were being hit hard by Russia’s retaliatory ban on foodstuff from the EU, Mike St. Mark replied that while the Russian leader was running rings round the USA, EU and Ukraine, he didn’t think it was quite game and set at that point.

It is now. And possibly match too. I just has a belated look at US financial services news site Zero Hedge and found this. Tyler Durden who writes the posts has feeds from AP, Reuters, Press Association and all the rest at his fingertips so he’s way ahead of us workaday bloggers:

Anti-Putin” Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End To Russian Sanctions

Last week Germany reported that in the second quarter, its GDP declined by 0.2%, worse than Wall Street consensus. This happened a few shorts days after Italy reported a second consecutive decline in its own GDP, becoming the first Europen country to enter a triple-dip recession. What’s worse, Europe’s slowdown took place before the brunt of Russian sanctions hit. Surely in the third quarter the GDP of Germany, a nation whose exports accounts for 41% of GDP, will be even worse, with whisper numbers of -1% being thrown casually around, but one thing is certain: Europe is about to enter its third recession since the Lehman collapse just as we forecast at the end of 2013, a “triple-dip” which may become an outright depression unless Draghi injects a few trillion in credit money (which will do nothing but delay the inevitable and make it that much worse once the can can no longer be kicked), and unless normal trade ties with Russia are restored.

Which means one thing: for Europe to resume the status quo, it needs to break away from the “western” alliance and the sanctions imposed upon the Kremlin which solely benefit the populist agenda of Washington, and certainly not Europe proper, which it is now quite clear, is far more reliant on Russia than vice versa. it is also something Putin apparently was aware of from the very beginning.

And now, that realization is starting to spread to Europe’s own countries, which – while the new cold war was only one of rhetoric were perfectly happy to go for the ride – but now that trade war has finally broken out, suddenly increasingly more want out.

As we reported previously, it all started with the Greeks, a nation of heavy food exports into Russia, who were the first to announce their displeasure with the “Stop Putin” coalition:

Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.

Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it’s in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I’m right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.

Recent established truths have included ‘Mass immigration is good for the economy’, ‘borrowing money to pay interest on debt already owed is sound financial management’, ‘the science is settled’ and ‘Genetically modified food crops will feed the world and turn us into a race of superbeings’.

No doubt you have come across many fascists who would suppress free speech in order to silence questions on such topics. They will call themselves liberals but how can anybody be a liberal when they oppose the freedom to doubt and question.

We will return to the first three areas in which the ‘liberal’ fascists are trying to control debate very soon no doubt, but for today we are looking at an article from the left leaning alternet.com (common sense has no political bias) on …

6 of the Biotech Industry’s Biggest Marketing Myths to Convince You GMOs Are Great

After an opening section which looks at how biotech corporations have bought scientific opinion (which, like Barack Obamas arse when he was a teenage ‘crack ho’) is sold very cheaply) and describes how corporate money has corrupted the scientific research process and turned higher education into a kind of brothel for compliant intellects, it gets more specific, focusing on Elanco, a biotech subsidiary of pharmeceutical giant Eli Lilley to expose the blatant lies in their document How We’ll Feed The World, which is presented as an objective study but is really nothing more than marketing puff for the products of the parent company and their partners.

Enriching life in the USA says the Elanco web page. OK, but enriching it with what you might well ask. Bovine growth hormones to create milk cows (sorry, units – we must make the process impersonal) that produce more milk.

The next lie is that consumers who want unadulterated food are a nutty fringe minority.

Actually most consumers want unadulterated food, the fringe minority is not defined by their eccentricity but their wealth. Governments and academic crooks have collaborated with corporate interests to make pure, unadulterated foods unaffordable to the majority.

And so it goes on. Click HERE to go to the Alternet page and read the full, three page exposé. And remember, its not the freethinkers and sceptics that support political movements whose leaders talk of criminalising dissent on topics like global warming scaremongering, or the lies that hide the dangers of GM foods.

Forget the warlords and the madmen, it is the truth tellers who pose the real threat to power.

The Best foods for protein are not those you have been told

Another group of scientists proved to be crooks and liars interested more in promoting the profits or corporations that provide their funding? Well that’s the way it looks as evidence mounts that intensively farmed produce, particularly meat and dairy goods are not as rich in nutrients as when our ancestors ate meat and milk or cheese from naturally grazed cattle or eggs from free range hens. As usual, its all about money in the twenty first century. Time to reclaim our humanity?

But guess what, meat, eggs and dairy food groups, all produced mainly by heavily industrialised intensive farming are the best foods for boosting the profits of Big Agriculture, Big Food and the chemicals corporations that make fertilizers, pesticides, veterinary medicines and other products used in the production of high protein food.

Hotly Debated: 1240 Scientists Demand Seralini GMO Study be Republished, Will NOT Be Suppressed

Over 1240 scientist signatories have demanded that a study previously published on the toxic effects of GMO maize and RoundUp that was retracted by the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT) be reinstated. This is a massive backlash against an industry that has tried to silence well-qualified scientists from publishing the truth about GMOs. These scientists and others plan to boycott Elsevier -a ‘world-leading provider of scientific information – until the journal, FCT, reinstates a study carried out by Gilles Eric Séralini et al., which was been debated throughout scientific and non-scientific circles alike.

“The suppression of scientific evidence for commercial gain should be punishable by criminal charges. The tobacco companies got away with this for nearly 30 years before the world woke up to the problem, and even then the response was insufficient. The risks posed by the epigenetic response of plant DNA to foreign genes is potentially catastrophic, and the precautionary principle should apply. Censoring science is playing with peoples lives.” Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini is a biologist at the University of Caen. He published a study on GMOs which clearly showed how damaging they were to health, and pointing out that “Agricultural GMOs do not exist independently of pesticides.” That study can be found here.

GM crops depopulation plan

You know that Little Nicky and his friends Boggart Blog, The Daily Stirrer et al have always been sceptical of claims that genetically modified crop plants would feed the world and usher in an era of peace and plenty (all together now, kumbaya doo dah, kumbaya …) We have researched the claims of the Doctor Corporations involved in the genetic engineering business (and the lying shits scientists involved in developing hybrid apple / shrimp species and find “the science” leaves a lot to be desired:

Geneticist says GM foods will never be safe
GM food – a huge experiment on humanity with no safeguards
GM crops will not feed the world
More on the biotech scam

But what if we told you there is a depopulation agenda behind the New World Order push to give Monsanto a monopoly on the food we eat? “Conspiracy theory”, you would shout.

N ow how many times have you yelled conspiracy theory at Little Nicky and he turned out to be right on the nail. ‘Tis so again I fear.

QUOTE:
Many individuals have heard it a million times, but for the uninformed, or those just looking to fuel their 2014 fire to finally defeat Monsanto and their cronies, you’ll be interested to know that Monsanto’s Bt-toxin is far from ‘safe’ as the chemical company claimed it would be when filing their papers with the FDA. New research from Canada show that BT toxins are showing up in pregnant women, and low and behold – they are killing human embryo cells. 2014 is the year of the horse, but we’re not through beating this one to death.

It’s called reproductive toxicology, and just like their suicide seeds, these Bt toxins are starting to kill our own unborn children. This is no exaggeration. Hopefully reading further will compel you to take action. It is time to put Monsanto to rest, bankrupt them, and let the world know their ‘secrets’ near and far.”

Monsanto, the TPP and Global Food Dominance

“Control oil and you control nations,” said US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. ”Control food and you control the people.”

Global food control has nearly been achieved, by reducing seed diversity with GMO (genetically modified) seeds that are distributed by only a few transnational corporations. But this agenda has been implemented at grave cost to our health; and if the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) passes, control over not just our food but our health (see posts in Black Hat Biotech menu), our environment and our financial system will be in the hands of transnational corporations. And our governments of course already are.
