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 more the ‘experts’, professors and politicians tell us genetically modified crops are good, the mor suspicious we become.

Monsanto Whistleblower Admits Entire Department Exists to "Discredit” Scientists


Don’t trust the GMO companies until they look you in the eye and say they#d let their kids eat the shite (Image source)

Dare to publish a scientific study against Big Biotech, and the brand leader in GM seed, Monsanto, will mount a campaign similar to a medieval witch hunt, aimed at defaming and discrediting you. All in all this is very similar the what happens in any area of commercial activity in which researcers working in the public interest collide with the science whores who prostitute themselves for corporate money.

Consider climate change, a field in which scepticism of the scientifically flawed case that the minor fluctuations we have seen in climate in recent decades constitute an existential threat to life on earth, but are beyond doubt caused by carbon dioxide emissions associated with human activity.

Though this is a far from unanimous view (see HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE. While the Warmageddonist zealots (yes, it is like a religion for them and as the links above show, as with the Medieval Catholic Church, heretcs who question the dogma are persecuted) screech that the sceptical voices are funded by the demonic Big Koch (Koch Bros, a US indistrial conglomerate), Big Oil and Big Gas, the Warmageddonists are funded by big government and those engaged in a campaign for global government, and Big Money (Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street investment banks planned before the 2008 crash, to create a $1trillion a year market in trading carbon credits.

All of which shows the self righteous posturing of ‘green’ politicians in a rather different perspective.

It has been much the same case with the propaganda campaign mounted by politicians, the media and biotech industry PR consultants to force the world to replace natural food with genetically modified seed HERE and HERE and HERE.
Now, not for the first time, a Monsanto employee, who still works for the company and so cannot be named, has blown the whistle on the fact that Monsanto are aware of the risks to human health and the environment posed by GMOs. The whistleblower admits that there is an entire department within the corporation with the simple task of ‘discrediting’ and ‘debunking’ scientists who speak out against GMOs.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently classified glyphosate, a chemical in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, as carcinogenic – news that is really heating things up with biotech. So Monsanto has been demanding that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) retract their statements about the poisons’s toxicity to human health.

(Don’t pretand you’re shocked, Little Nicky Machiavelli and his friends have been been warning you for ten years about the shite corporate science whores wanted to put in your stomach.)

The company demands this even though a peer-reviewed study published in March of 2015 in the respected journal, The Lancet Oncology, conducted a analysis proving that glyphosate was indeed ‘probably carcinogenic.’

Monsanto’s vice president of global regulatory affairs Philip Miller explained Monsanto’s case (which can be summed up as “don’t fuck with us or you’ll be sorry”) in an interview with Reuters linked below:

Food Fascists: GMO and Pesticide Manufacturers Play Dirty

Pig farming is big news in Denmark as the few of you who watched the BBC4 Danish Television political drama Borgen will be aware. So when something comes along that threatens the pig farming indusrty people sit up and take notice.

And when the problems farmers are experiencing can be traced to GMO (genetically modified) feedstuffs fed to piglets, all those of us who have campaigned against the corporate businessmen and their science whores and the bought and paid for politicians are trying to force on us long suffering consumers, we in alternative media who are leading the resistance to global fascism are very happy. It means the corporate fascists have handed us another stick with which to beat them.

Danish farmer IbBorup Pedersen has made his living rearing hogs for decades so you can be sure he knows a thing or two about the animals. But when Pedersen became alarmed at the growing incidence of deformities and biological defects among newborn piglets, which included gaps in skulls, misshaped bones, missing legs and even a female piglet with testicles …

How the Globalists Are Raping Africa (and the Rest of the World, Too)

from Truthstream Media

In this second episode of Truthstream News, Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton expose the phony pretenses behind a massive corporate takeover in Africa – as well as other examples of Trojan Horse philanthropic aid on the international scene.

The United States just led the first ever U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, hosting figures from throughout the African continent to discuss its development. But despite typical rhetoric about lifting populations out of poverty and addressing Ebola outbreak concerns, the core of the conference was about promoting American-based multinational business in Africa.

This is particularly true of GMO-oriented agribusiness, which has been heavily pushed upon the continent in the name of increasing productivity and consolidating farms on Africa’s 60% share of the world’s arable land.

During this summit, Secretary of State John Kerry urged Africans not to create new farms, but rather to “improve” existing farms:

“Rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process that typically releases significant amounts of carbon pollution, we can instead concentrate our efforts on making existing farmlands more productive.”

The code words supporting biotech and export-oriented big business can hardly be missed between the lines.

President Obama quietly issued an executive order to back this effort up: “Establishing the President’s Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa”. The advisory council is to be made up of 15 corporate leaders in banking, agriculture and industry.

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.

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.
