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.

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 …

Bill Gates Foundation Giving Millions to Top University In Order To Influence GMO “Debate” – It Must Be Dodgy

Liberty Beacon reports:

Former Microsoft CEO and mega mogul Bill Gates has long utilized his vast fortune to push genetically modified organisms (GMOs) through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, but Gates’ efforts have been met with sharp criticism from millions of grassroots activists both home and abroad.

The debate around GMOs has become increasingly one-sided in recent years, with activists spreading the word about the health dangers of genetically modified foods as well as the environmental risks (see here and here) of the lab-created crops via social media.

Pro-GMO corporations have adjusted, attempting to fight back with their own PR campaigns (including this one where Monsanto offered money “mommy bloggers” to attend a presentation).

Now, in an effort to “depolarize” the GMO debate, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is making a multi-million dollar donation to one of America’s most prominent universities.

Being a former computer professional I have little time for Bill Gates, the world’s richest (but not most competent) computer amateur, the man who made ‘ Not fit for purpose” acceptable quality to put into the market.

Gates is not the genius his fanboys present him as however, does anyone really believe it is just a coincidence that a computer company founded by a university drop out with no professional experience and no actual software product to offer but was the son of a CIA director*, was chosen to supply the operating system for PCs marketed by the US Government’s preferred supplier of computer systems?

(Did you know that MS – DOS was not developed by Microsoft, but Gates’ company, having already been awarded the contract, was allowed to ‘buy in’ a complete operating system from a former rival bidder – and thus we were stuck with the abysmal MS DOS rather than a much superior system from Digital research, DR – DOS.

And does anybody believe that an overpriced product with as fundamentally flawed design and the IBM / Intel motherboard architecture then became the de facto standard for personal computing in the face of opposition from many cheaper and far superior products (including a couple of British offerings, the Acorn / BBC and the Apricot range,) without a big leg up from a very powerful *non-commercial-organisation with unlimited funds at its disposal. (Is Little Nicky referring to the US Government? You might well ask. I couldn’t possibly comment.

These things are not coincidence, nor it is a coincidence that one of the many security loopholes, which has been present in all windows systems since Win 98, and compounded by the addition of further ‘accidental fuck ups’ is the applet that opens the postern gate through which the CIA, NSA, GCHQ, (and also the tech – savvy world and his wife) can enter your PC, change setup, run scripts and take liberties with your personal data.

Everything Bill Gates does is crooked, he is and always has been the US Government’s man. And if he is pushing GMOs you can bet it is because the US Government is rewarding him.

As far as I am concerned Gates and all the other pointy headed science worshippers can eat all the toxic shite grown from monsanto’s GM seeds he wants to. I avoid it, I suggest you do too for commercial as well as health reasons (Black Hat Biotech) and support political parties that want to get us out of the EU, because those bandits in Brussels are currently negotiating a ‘free trade’ (TTIP) deal with the American and Canadian governments that will mean American corporations don’t have to tell us what kind of toxic shite they are putting in food.

TTIP will mean you don’t get any choice about whether you eat foods containing GM or Genetically Engineered (GE) organisms or not.

Now science tits will tell you there is no risk with Genetically modified organisms as food and will then tell a pack of lies about “scientific consensus”. Well you know how the “Scientific Method” the pointy heads are always banging on about works. No matter how meticulous a piece of scientific research is, if it does not agree with the “Scientific Consensus” (i.e. the lie that will attract the most government money in research grants) it will not be accepted as evidence.

The whole of government is as corrupt and rotten as an infected digestive system and Bill Gates is a bacterium in the lower intestine. Trust nothing the misanthropic little shit says.

Monsanto’s Genetically Modified Tomato Of Death – Waking Times

Corporate power is out of control, corporate finance owns the political systems of the free politicised systems of healthcare, justice, education, employment and the media. It is futile to talk of accountability, there was a time when those who owned businesses, even the huge, global businesses, could be held responsible for what was done in their name. Henry Ford and his descendents owned a controlling interest Ford Motors, Samuel Courtald and his family owned Courtalds Textiles, the Rockefellers owned Standard Oil, the Agnelli’s owned Italy’s giant Fiat company and people named Krupp owned Krupps engineering in Germany. you get the picture?

When I was studying economics and commerce in the 1960s there was a book, a business directory, titled Who Owns Whom. It told those with an interest things like, Brooke Bond Leibig, owners of the Brooke Bond Tea brand also owned Fray Bentos corned beef or that the Lever family firm, Unilever’s interests included Soap Powder, Coffee, Personal Hygiene products, Margarine, Ice cream, sausages and lubricants. Such a volume would be useless now, it is impossible to tell who owns anything, in the corporate and banking environment every company owns every other company. So labyrinthine is the cross ownership that it is quite possible that Corporation A which owns a controlling interest in Corporation B is in fact owned by Corporation B through Corporation B’s holdings in Corporation X and Corporation Y.

In such an environment is it surprisingp the mega cororations are out of control. One Corporate entity above all others has, however, consistently outperformed its rivals in cynical disregard for the environment and the wellbeing of humanity. Monsanto shamelessly, proudly perhaps, wears the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!”

Fair plsy to them, even now Monsanto is not content to simply rest upon its laurels, to sit atop a plinth inscried with the words “Look on my works, you mighty and despair,*” as it surveys a vast field of skulls and rotting corpses, the corporate are focused as keenly as ever on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and all its people in the pursuit of corporate power and profits.
As true champions of evil, they won’t stop until … they won’t stop, unless we stop them by boycotting their products, voting out of office the politicians why try to give them immunity from prosecution in connection with the harm their scientifically innovative (and often untested) products may cause, or help them bully peasant farmers into a kind of serfdom by passing laws decreeing that naturally produced seed may not be grown or upholding patent violation lawsuits brought when natural crops are accidentally pollinated by pollens from Monsanto’s genetically modified seed stock. Ye, all these things have happened.

But who are Monsanto and how did they learn to get away with being so obscenely evil in the first place? Here’s a history of the Monsanto Corporation – I warn you however, it is far more gruesome than a series of Game Of Thrones.

US Government Caught Working For Monsanto

Little Nicky has been warning you since 2005 of collaboration between governments, particularly the government of the USA, and global corporations to drive ordinary punters into penury in order to boost corporate profits and tighten bureaucratic control. Here’s another prime examble how how shitty and corrupt the scientific utopia is, that the elites have been building with our money, telling us it is for our benefit.

Slavery will not benefit us in any way. The shit who coined that phrase 2The more you serve, the more free you become,” was obviously a slave owner.

Read this this if you still think the government is your friend:

“The President of the El Salvadoran Center for Appropriate Technologies (CESTA), Ricardo Navarro, has demanded that the U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador, Mari Carmen Aponte, stops pressurizing the Government of El Salvador to buy Monsanto’s GM seeds rather than non-GMO seeds from domestic suppliers.

Navarro said “I would like to tell the U.S. Ambassador to stop pressuring the Government (of El Salvador) to buy ‘improved’ GM seeds, which is only of benefit to U.S. multinationals and is to the detriment of local seed production,” Verdad Digital reported last week.

In recent weeks, the U.S. has been pushing the El Salvadoran Government to sign the second Millennium Challenge Compact. One of the main conditions on the agreement is allegedly for the purchasing of GM seeds from Monsanto.”

Well Little Nicky keeps hearing rumours that economically powerful nations like Saudi Arabia and India are about to follow Russia and China and dump the petrodollar, a move which would trash the US economy and destroy the global school bully’s superpower status. Can’t come too soon for small nations like El Salvador.

US-EU Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) Will Have Devastating Social and Environmental Consequences

Can a free trade treaty really be called that when the ‘free’ is refers to is freeing nasty corporations like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, BP, Exxon, the Drugs and medicine cartel or the big bankers from having to comply with laws enacted by elected governments that the corporate interests don’t like. Of course not.

We have already seen similar terms and conditions included in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) a so called free trade treaty among the pacific rim nations (in these treaties, free trade means anything but free, you understand, TPP and it’s trans atlantic counterpart the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (ttip) and now the new kid on the block, the US-EU Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) will have devastating consequences for we the punters and for the economies of the sovereign nations we live in

But for the banks, big corporations and the bureaucracies who work hand in glove with them, it’s all gravy.

We have warned you before about negotiations currently going on (mainly in secret, us ordinary punters are not allowed to know how the Banking Cartel led by the Rothschild dynasty plan to take control of our lives) to bring the free world closer to rule by a totalitarian global government led by unelected bureucrats and technocrats. We have reported on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) wihch US Emperor Barack Hussein Obama is trying to bulldoze into law without it’s ever being voted on by the US Congress and on the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment which would create a similar apparent free trade area spanning europe and Noth America.

What you have read in mainstream print media or heard in boroadcast news is unfortunately a complete load of bollocks. Anybody who has taken the trouble to read the parts of these agreements that are so far publicly available has been shocked to see that far from free trade, trade between nations party to the agreements would be controlled by global banks and corporations. Corporate and business interests would also gain the power to override or veto the laws made by elected assemblies of sovereign nations.

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:

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.

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.

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.

Monsanto, the TPP and Global Food Dominance
Meat Will Only Be For The Elite If Leftie Scientists Get Their Way

Latest GM food scam; we are led by idiots who are advised by cretins.

Not long ago, only a few weeks in fact, the EU, under pressure from environmentally aware people (not global warming scaremongers but people who REALLY care about the environment, agreed to ban neonicotinoid pesticides because of very strong evidence that these chemicals are the main cause of the great bee die off.

Said pesticides, you may be aware, are the ones growers of Monsanto genetically modified seed are contractually obliged to use because Monsatan Monsanto seeds are genetically engineered to be resistant to the toxins in such pesticides.

So why are the cupid stunts in Westminster, led by Call Me Dave and his conservatives but with the support of Lib Dem and Labour leaders pushing for the lifting of bans on the introduction of genetically modified crops to the UK? Do the twats want to poison us or are they so spineless they dare not look at independent research like THIS and THIS that shows far from being safe, GM crops will do you about as much good as a spoonful of cyanide.

Yesterday minister Owen Patterson undid all his good work on denouncing wind farms as a money making scam created for Blair’s Corporate cronies, now he wants to hand over control of our countryside to Cameron’s corporate cronies Monsanto.

Mr Paterson said that GM offers “wonderful opportunities” that could benefit human health and the environment. (Benefit health Owen, Like THIS particular health benefit you mean – just one of many I must add to head off any science tits who come along trying to tell me one research project does not prove anything.

Patterson said GM production in the UK would mean less spraying of pesticides and less intensive farming. These are both lies. Monsanto Roundup herbicide and various pesticides (all toxic to humans) have to be sprayed on GM crops. You see the genetic modification used is not to make them immune to being eaten by caterpillars or chocked by weeds, it is to make them resistant to the active ingredients in those pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately humans have not been genetically modifies to make us pesticide and herbicide resistant.

Mr Paterson also said that an expansion of GM crops could lead to the creation of more nature reserves because it would allow more intensive farming, therefore freeing up “space for biodiversity, nature and wilderness”. (In spite of this parliamentary support)

Mr Paterson is battling to persuade officials in the European Union to lift current rules which only allow one type of maize to be grown in the UK.

Britain is pushing for scores of GM crops to be given the green light by EU regulators, including herbicide tolerant maize and sugar beet. The politiians are in Monsantos corporate pocked and now the evil corporate empire is recruiting farmers by promising (falsely) lower costs and bigger profits and a chance to point a shotgun at GM protesters and say “Get orf moi laaaaaaaand.

If GM crops are bad, show us the evidence
Steve Connor
Monday 3 June 2013
full article at The Independent

“It’s no longer tenable to call GM ‘unnatural’ and so inherently wrong

It is nearly 20 years since the first GM crops were grown.

Some 28 countries cultivate them on a commercial scale, and many hundreds of millions of people now safely eat GM food – directly or indirectly – on a regular basis. Yet, to judge from the rhetoric of anti-GM activists – from the rough-cut environmentalists to the smooth-talking purveyors of organic food – you could be forgiven for thinking that medical catastrophe and genetic Armageddon are upon us, courtesy of the “Frankenfoods” revolution.

Calestous Juma, a professor of international development at Harvard, is not one to mince his words when it comes to genetically modified crops. To paraphrase his speech at McGill University in Montreal later today, Juma believes the time has come for the vociferous opponents of GM to put up or shut up. The use of transgenic crops, he points out, has to date prevented the spraying of 473 million kilograms of toxic pesticides, reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 23.1bn kg – equivalent to taking 10.2 million cars off the road – and saved 108.7 million hectares of land from being turned into farmland. Rather than creating environmental havoc, GM crops have, by and large, been better for the environment than growing the equivalent conventional crops, with relatively lower yields and higher chemical input.

Equally, no-one has died or fallen ill directly as a result of eating GM food. Studies showing that GM food damages the health of laboratory animals have been discredited. Contrary to what the pro-organic lobby would have us believe, it is actually more dangerous to eat organic food – as the 53 people in Germany who died in 2011 from eating organic beansprouts tragically discovered.”

he hi wrong on all counts. Not only is there a mountain of evidence by perfectly crespectable scientists (a couple of nobel prizewinning biologists amongs them) that cast very serious doubts on some strains of GM staple food crops (the way they generalise is an attempt at deflection typical of the corporate ‘science’ lobby. No genuine scientist would ever say GM foods are safe or are not safe, they would examine GM seeds species by species.

Safety is not the primary issue here, the world is overpopulated, the planet cannot sustain 7 billion people, especially with the poor five billion demanding lifestyles enjoyed by the privileged two billion, Our New Unhappy Lords will reduce population one way or another, be it by war, famine, pestilence, plague of GM organisms. No, the real issue is about monopoly control of the seed stock.

Is this shit sucking sycophant, this corporate lackey, and rent seeking apology for a human being really asking us to believe it would be a good idea to had a monopoly on the food supply to a corporation whose track records shows they are utterly ruthless in pursuit of the corporate goals, whose criminal record showws they have repeatedly falsified data, lied, bribed and used threats and coercion to foist unsafe products on the world.

Connor says, “Show us the evidence” but as with the CAGWARTs (Carbon Driven Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Twats), the GM lobby will try to deny any evidence that exposes their scam is invalid. As for Connor, if the cupid stunt is still asking for evidence what fucking planet has he been on for the past twenty years?

One of the top comments I read under his post was this:

Gail Evans:
a) The seeds are patented, which means farmers can no longer produce seeds from their own crops for the next season, but are forced into further monetary outlay to buy from GMO seed companies. If they do not and produce their own seed from GM source material, they can get sued for millions.

b) The chemicals used on these crops are highly toxic and in Argentina have resulted in rising cases of cancer.

c) The use of these chemicals is killing off the bee population which the planet needs for pollination.

d) The studies done by the French scientists, one of the few that have actually been allowed to be published in the Main Stream Media, have proved that these GMO crops cause cancer, infertility and shortened life spans. On the contrary, companies like Monsanto who have to employ people like Blackwater, have done all they can to gag the press so that they are the alpha and the omega on the whole subject.

In South Africa a full open, honest and fully disclosed Independent Scientific Study ( independent of all companies such as Monsanto and all their affiliates, known and unknown covert operatives such a Blackwater) by at least three different laboratories over no less than a period of five years. In the interim, all products containing any GMO ingredients, or any ingredients derived from a genetically modified plant, or any meat product fed a genetically modified feed, must be labelled as such in bold and clear type.

pdjmoo 8 days ago:
The highly unregulated biotech re-engineering and patenting of life is highly dangerous and unethical. Science does not enough about the intract web of life to be meddling with singular aspects of our biosphere, creating chain reactions.

Further the issue of GMOs is more about the total impact on the environment and human health that is only now beginning to show up.

The patenting of reengineered seeds, the pesticides, chemicals, fertilizers required to grow them all owned by the same biotech cartel; and the devastation to our natural biodiversity, poisoning of our soils and waterways, killing off beneficial insects all have given our future over to a science still evolving and painfully disconnected from the greater health of our environment and human health. We are rolling the dice in a relatively new aspect of science, biotechnology, that has little or no oversight and regulation and much of it, once released, will be very difficult to reverse.

Finally, it is driven by a trillion dollar biotech cartel and, insofar as the gmo aspect and ownership of the global seed supply means control of the global food supply and the pesticides needed to control them. Not okay. YOUR FOOD, YOUR HEALTH

Back to me. GMOs are not the problem, it is making them resistant to chemicals that damage the environment and have unaccounted for reactions in the human body that is the problem.

As long as you improve the natural resistance, or growth of a plant that is not a problem at all. The problem is that by genetically modifying a plant to be resistant to weekiller and insecticide we turn that plant into a vehicle for delivering the toxin into the human food chain.

A recent report takes 123 pages to list and summarise peer reviewed research papers raising serious concerns about G M foods. Scientists respond with their usual knee jerk “ah but it’s not proper science (to a ‘scientist’ it seem, proper science is only that which affirms their prejudices)Well you should understand by now only a fool would take a scientists word for anything. Check the evidence for youself and then see if you agree with Steve Connor and the scientific crooks and liars he writes poropaganda for. Here’s the 123 pages of evidence they pretend to be unaware of

Not really evidence they will shout. Well look, the report lists project after project, all peer reviewed (scientists place great faith on peer review)so again we see the dishonesty and hypocrisy of those who defend the genetic engineering industry.

This article does not talk about the chemicals Monsanto customers are contractually obliged to use and which are deadly to humans. Science doesn’t need to tell me that putting agent orange in my food is bad for me, but it does say so: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0278691512005637 Rats died 2-3 times more rapidly than untreated animals. The author is a liar and he is welcome to sue me for saying so! I shall leave him without a career, a home, a family, a pot to piss in or a penny to scratch his arse with and take great pleasure in doing so.

Busy Day, Here’s A Few Teasers

Education Is Out, Indoctrination Is In
This is about a teacher in america who has quit the profession in disgust at the way left wing indoctrination is replacing neutral education in schools. Many British teachers have said similar things and Daily stirrer occasional contributor Sally Redfern quit the teaching profession for the same reason.

Europe Kicks Monsantos Arse Over GMOs
While the politicians and bureaucrats are mad to push GMOs down our throats (literally) publich opinion hostile to Frankenstein Foods has pushed Monsanto out of Europe … for the present.

Forget Recession, US banks Post Record Profits
Do you feel the value of your savings has been eroded and the buying power of your earnings reduced by higher taxes and austerity measures governments have introduced to ‘save the economy.’Yeah but … we’re all in this together aren’t we and everybody is making sacrifices, you might well reply. Except we’re not all in it together, not everyone is …

If Monsanto Are As Clean As They Claim, Why Do The Need a Private Army?

The Monsanto Company likes to proclaim that they are the good guys, here to selflessly feed the world, help with sustainable agriculture, and, as if those lofty goals are not enough, champion human rights across the globe. All you have to do is look at their commitments page to see how worthy they are of a shiny corporate halo:’

Monsanto propaganda makes claims like this:

“At the heart of Monsanto is a very clear and principled code of conduct – one we expect all employees, contractors and management to live by every day. We operate under a genuine value system—our pledge—that demonstrates integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty as a foundation for everything we do.’

A key part of fulfilling the promise of our value system is by engaging our communities in a significant and positive manner. Not only do we work hard to support the family farmer in a variety of ways, but we also …”

So why, you might well ask, does a company that is so angelic and so committed to putting common good ahead of corporate profits need a private army:

Real all about Monsanto’s gowing paranoia over the anti – GM movement and the extraordinary steps the corporation is taking to protect it’s poisonous intellectual property:

Euro nazi EU To Regulate Your Garden.

Yes you read the headline right and no it is not one of my tabloid spoofs.

In order to protect the profits of lying, thieving, murdering shits like G M crop monopolists Monsanto you friendly local pan European neo Nazi dictators at European Union HQ in Brussels plan to regulate what you can grow in your garden.

via Infinte Unknown:
– EU wants to regulate cultivation of fruit and vegetables in gardens (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, April 23, 2013):

Google translation:
‘The European Commission wants to impose on farmers and gardeners in the future the use of standard seeds. Old and rare varieties have little chance of an approval, their cultivation will be punishable by law – even if it takes place in private gardens.

The European Commission is working on a revision of the European seed market in the form of a regulation. Thus, a decision of the European Court is legalized in July 2012: Farmers are allowed to sell only officially authorized seed. So far, old and rare seed varieties were excluded that were grown in long standing economic and exchange traded, usually in small quantities. If it goes to the Commission’s plans, small farmers or private persons may not even give away their homegrown seeds in the future.’

And what kind of seeds will you be able to plant in your garden or allotment. You can bet the range will not include the seeds the old guy next door put aside from last year’s crop.

You have to understand that as far as corporate executives and their scummy chummies in politics are concerned, anything that we get free from nature is evil.
