Staging Ferguson, a covert op, and Al Sharpton

Staging Ferguson, a covert op, and Al Sharpton

This first part of this article was inspired by, and derives directly from, Joe Quixote’s excellent Infowars piece, “Ferguson—Race-baiting for Political Power and Profit.”

Start with this. Michael Brown. Trayvon Martin.

Two deaths. Two killings.

With remarkable speed, as soon as the deaths occurred, they became national issues.

Incidents of police brutality across America are an ongoing fact of life, including brutality against young black men, but these two deaths were selected for special quick attention.

No doubt about it.

Media blew up. The Justice Dept. and the White House moved in right away.

There was no way to walk back those events and diminish their effect on the public.

The waves of emotion grew higher.

Black vs. white.

However, the curious thing was, in both cases the initial reports morphed into…doubt.

You can say the doubts were justified, or you can say they weren’t. Regardless, the media raised them. Police raised them.

Clear-cut cases of murder became self-defense. Maybe. Not sure. Could be.

Doubt.

Which produced even greater turmoil, accusation, and black-white conflict.

And set the stage for an “upcoming evidentiary finding.” A vital element of the covert op.

That put everyone on edge.

What would be the outcome?

Who would lie and who would tell the truth?

How much violence would break out once the result was announced?

If the Martin and Brown cases had been “natural events,” there was every chance the facts in the cases would be clear from the outset. Yes, it was unjustified murder. Or no, it was justified self-defense. And then the whole situation and its attendant emotions would have diminished.

But that’s not what occurred.

Media and the executive arm of government “just happened” to fasten on two cases where the facts were murky. Or could be presented as murky.

Exacerbating the tension.

“The race hustlers choose fact patterns like this because they know each side feels justified in its interpretation of events. Each side wonders how the other could be so blind. It must be because they don’t care, or they’re evil. Michael Brown’s death presents a perfect fact pattern to sow distrust and hatred. Never let a good crisis go to waste.” (Joe Quixote, Infowars, “Ferguson—Race-baiting for Political Power and Profit.”)

In recent years, who is the White House/Justice Dept. private citizen on the scene in these cases? Who is the prime number-one stirrer of the pot?

Al Sharpton.

Many things can be said about the man, but one thing is: he has worked for the FBI. You know, the agency that has run many operations against black leaders—and thereby fomented black-white conflict. Example: Martin Luther King.

Read what the FBI secretly had to say about a particularly “dangerous” Black Panther, Larry Pinkney and why they ACTUALLY targeted him:

“[Black Panther Larry] Pinkney is potentially dangerous due to his demonstrated ability to unify black and white. [Get it?] His associates are Negro, White and Chinese. Special attention is being given to neutralizing him. The areas of sex and drugs appear to be the most effective ones to utilize. His habits in these areas are unknown, but are being monitored with this objective.” (Infowars, Nov. 21, 2014. “Special Report: FBI Attacks Black Panther For NOT Being Racist!” This information, from the FBI’s file on Pinkney, was obtained through William Mandel’s FOIA request.)

Al Sharpton went to work undercover for the FBI, after walking into a videotaped cocaine sting, where boxing promoter Don King was present. HBO played the tape years ago on its program Real Sports.

The usual account, moving forward, was: Sharpton was assigned a confidential informant number, CI-7, and spied on members of the Genovese crime family for his FBI handlers.

However, there is another aspect of the story. It illustrates that Sharpton has had a penchant for playing ball with all sorts of backers—even when their motives are anti-black.

And why might that be important? Because the current standoff in Ferguson isn’t being staged to benefit black people.


The Matrix Revealed


Let’s travel back to 2004. Reporter Doug Ireland, who has written for The Nation, TomPaine.com, In These Times, and LA Weekly, went deeper in evaluating Sharpton’s motives and allies.

February 21, 2004, “Rev. Al Sharpton: FBI Informant-Roger Stone’s Bitch,” originally published in LA Weekly and at webstonne.com, and then Conspiracy Planet:

“Sharpton…has now been exposed as a cat’s-paw for the National Republican Party.

“Rev. Al has a long and sordid history of posing as the champion of the have-nots, while renting himself out to the greedy have-everythings, which predates his ’04 GOP-funded [!] presidential campaign. In 1986, he endorsed N.Y. Senator Al D’Amato for re-election — although D’Amato, a conservative Republican pit bull, was anathema to more issues-attuned black leaders.

“In 1994, he helped dampen down the black vote for [Democrat] Governor Mario Cuomo by making a media-hyped appearance with successful conservative Republican candidate George Pataki just days before the election. In the 2001 New York mayoral campaign, he connived with GOP billionaire Michael Bloomberg in the defeat of the Democratic candidate, Mark Green.

“But Sharpton has not limited himself simply to supporting candidates considered by most to be inimical to the interests of the impoverished black community.

“A 1988 investigation by the Long Island daily Newsday revealed that Sharpton, who denounces African-American leaders who disagree with him as ‘yellow n*****s,’ had been a longtime FBI informant in a scheme to entrap black leaders and personalities on drug-related matters, even going so far as to wear a wire to record their conversations for the feds.

“How did the FBI turn Sharpton into their bitch?

“Why, they caught Rev. Al up to his hairdo in a drug-money Laundromat in which Don King, the much-indicted boxing promoter and a longtime pal of Sharpton’s, was a central figure. What’s more, the drug deal was an FBI sting — and the feds had it all on videotape, too.

“Just two years ago, Bryant Gumbel — the second most popular black on television next to Oprah — aired on his HBO Real Sports show an FBI videotape of Sharpton discussing laundering money from a South American drug dealer via King with Michael ‘Sonny’ Franzese, a former Colombo family captain.

“Sharpton was going to arrange a meeting with King and the coke peddler to set up the deal. But the ‘South American’ was an FBI agent, Franzese had already been turned by the feds into an informant and Sharpton fell right into their trap.

“Sharpton became a sting artist for the feds when he was himself stung. After the tape aired, Sharpton announced he was going to sue HBO for a billion bucks. Nothing has been heard of the lawsuit since then.

“Now, in his current presidential campaign [2004], Sharpton has been revealed as a wholly owned Republican subsidiary. Sharpton has been used by Republican operatives to discredit real contenders for the Democratic nomination. And the more prominent a place on the Democratic stage Sharpton can command, all the way to Boston, the more the Republicans can use the wisecracking but polarizing preacher-without-a-church as a bogeyman to frighten moderate voters away from the Democratic ticket.

“That’s the story behind the blockbuster report in the February 5 Village Voice, the L.A. Weekly’s sister paper in which veteran Voice investigative reporter Wayne Barrett and his team unveiled the malevolent forces keeping Sharpton’s campaign alive: ‘Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob that shut down the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George Bush president in 2000, is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Rev. Al Sharpton.’

“Who is Roger Stone? A slash-and-burn Republican black-bag election tamperer and consultant…Stone first made news in the Nixon Watergate scandal, when it was revealed that the 19-year-old apprentice McCarthyite had infiltrated George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign as part of CREEP’s sabotage plan.

“A few other highlights of Stone’s career as the boastful black prince of Republican sleaze: Stone helped Ollie North raise money for the Nicaraguan contras, and was a close associate of the notorious Lee Atwater (the GOP hit man who created the race-baiting Willie Horton TV spots for Bush 1988 presidential campaign).

“The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in his excellent book, Too Close To Call, about the 2000 Florida election — details how Stone was summoned by Bush recount chief James Baker to disrupt the vote counting (Stone and his Cuban wife, Nydia, organized a screaming mob of Miami Cubans outside the headquarters of the canvassing board — Stone directed the mob by walkie-talkie from across the street — and intimidated the board into ending the count).

“On the stump, Rev. Al has frequently denounced the theft of the presidential election in Florida — which depended in large measure on invalidating black votes.

“For example, he told a Democratic National Committee meeting last October that ‘We are witnessing a nonmilitary civil war; it started with the recount in Florida.’ So, hopping into bed with Stone might strike many African-Americans as ‘ungodly’ hypocrisy. But the tale gets worse.

“When Sharpton launched a vicious attack on [Democrat] Howard Dean for his supposed ‘anti-black agenda,’ the man behind the curtain was Stone, who crowed to The New York Times that he ‘helped set the tone and direction’ of the blast at Dean, while the research for it was provided by the man Stone had installed as Sharpton’s campaign manager, Charles Halloran, one of a half-dozen top aides to Sharpton who worked for Stone in previous campaigns.

“A member of Stone’s stable who stays at Stone’s Central Park South apartment in New York while working for Sharpton, Halloran — just before taking over the Sharpton campaign — had been managing the parliamentary campaign for one of Stone’s numerous foreign clients: the United Bermuda Party, a white-led party trying to oust the resort island’s first black government.

“Since Rev. Al’s presidential campaign [2004] is really all about trying to succeed Jesse Jackson as America’s premier black political leader, the installation of Halloran is thus an odd choice indeed, one that can be explained only by Sharpton’s dependence on the money funneled into his campaign by Stone. (Halloran’s wife works for the infamous Carlyle Group, the military-industrial-complex giant of which Bush was a longtime officer.)

“Stone has acknowledged that he ‘helped Sharpton’ meet the 20-state, $5,000-contribution threshold required for federal matching funds….

“…Sharpton’s almost penniless campaign has been sustained only by money given or raised by [Republican] Stone or by Stone-arranged credit with consultants — without which the campaign would collapse. The [Village] Voice alleges that Stone loaned some $270,000 to Sharpton laundered through Rev. Al’s National Action Network (NAN), and that Stone rang up $18,000 on his credit card for Sharpton’s campaign-travel and other expenses.

“In the wake of these revelations, the Federal Election Commission is about to consider [2004] whether the Sharpton campaign expenses picked up by NAN with the money provided by Stone, and other unpaid-for campaign services provided by Stone and his chums, constitute illegal campaign contributions, according to The New York Times.

“The Stone revelations show that Rev. Al’s presidential campaign is nothing more than another scam he’s running on black Americans, one designed to undermine the movement to defeat George Bush. Fortunately, black voters aren’t as gullible as the cynical Sharpton thinks they are — they know an unprincipled huckster when they see one.

“Which is why Sharpton — despite the help from his GOP bedmates on which his campaign depends — has been rejected by significant majorities of African-Americans this year at the polls.”

(Doug Ireland is a New York-based media critic and commentator whose articles appear regularly in The Nation, Tom Paine.com, and In These Times among many others. This article first appeared in the LA Weekly.)


power outside the matrix


Unfortunately, Sharpton, with lots of help from Barack Obama, has rehabbed his image and inserted himself, with significant effect, into the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown ops. From which no good thing is going to transpire, for black or white or brown or yellow or red people.

What is going on in Ferguson, and what went on in the Trayvon Martin case, are a lot deeper than they seem.

Ops within ops. Setting faction against faction. Race against race.

How far back do we need to go? The Clinton years and the Bush years and the Obama years are replete with major crimes that needed to be covered up.

What better way to achieve this end than to set race against race, distracting and frightening the population in the process, while further reducing the power of the people to take effective action against their political and economic bosses.

And to put the cherry on the cake, by the terms of these psyops every black person is supposed to side with “all black people,” and every white person is supposed to side with “all white people.”

That is a formula for doom.

It tries to makes the free and independent individual extinct.

Alert: Monsanto is trying to crush Maui right now

Alert: Monsanto is trying to crush Maui right now

by Jon Rappoport

November 21, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.

On Election Day, voters in Maui County passed a local ballot measure blocking Monsanto and Dow from further development of GMOs.

Maui is a very importance piece of Monsanto’s empire. Because of the year-round weather, they can run many, many tests on new GMO crop varieties.

So Monsanto and Dow immediately turned around and sued Maui County.

On top of that, the federal judge in the case is Barry Kurren, who has already sided with Monsanto against Kaui’s attempt to regulate GMOs.

Monsanto’s mouthpiece, John Purcell, released a statement: “This local [Maui] referendum interferes with and conflicts with long-established state and federal laws that support both the safety and lawful cultivation of GMO plants.”

Really.

In that case, why was the ballot measure allowed to be voted on, in the first place?

Why didn’t Monsanto file suit, win its case before Election Day, and knock the measure off the ballot? (Update here).

The truth is, Monsanto lost the vote. Now, they’re whining. If they had won, they wouldn’t uttered a peep of protest about the legality of the measure.

The county of Maui has every right to make a decision about GMOs and Roundup. They have every right to put the clamps on Monsanto and Dow.

This is a matter of public safety.

I don’t care what state or federal law says.


power outside the matrix


Local citizens always have a right to defend their lives and health. In this case, they are challenging official science. They are ready to oversee authentic investigations of GMO and Roundup safety.

Essentially, they are saying that any state or federal law that would hamstring them is based on false science.

And what is the sub-text of Monsanto’s remarks? “We got the laws on GMOs passed in the first place. We lied about the science. We got the FDA, in 1996, to lie and obfuscate and allow GMO crops to enter the US. So now we are appealing to those laws to make our case.”

I don’t know, Michael Carroll, the lawyer who is defending the voters of Maui against Monsanto. I know they could use a man like Gerry Spence, if he would come out of retirement and take up the sword one more time.

I know they could use a few PR sharks, who would blow this case up into the global scandal that it is, for all the world to see.

But that costs money.

The men who have been bankrolling the soft and weak GMO labeling initiatives could start writing checks, if they really cared about banning GMOs. Talking to you, Gary Hirshberg. Joe Mercola, David Bronner, Grant Lundberg.

And there is another man who could step in and make a difference. He lives far away, but he was raised in Hawaii. He claims to cherish those roots. Once upon a time, he seemed to be an ally.

His name is Barack Obama, and his silence is deafening.

Support GMO labeling or turn the oil tanker around?

Support GMO labeling or turn the oil tanker around?

Face it, America is in a shopping trance. A consumer trance. A buying trance.

So it’s natural that the more “enlightened shoppers” would see labeling GMO foods as a way to create a revolution.

Inside that bubble-trance, labels feel like a revolution.

The fact that Monsanto keeps selling high-level poison (Roundup) and Monsanto’s genes drift from plant to plant across the landscape doesn’t make an impact, because people don’t palpably encounter those elements when they look at food products on shelves.

Which is where they live when they aren’t living at home. In stores. Moving along aisles. Putting things in carts.

A GMO label on those things, or a non-GMO label, is as far as the eye can see.

The labels are also symbols: “I’m doing good in the world by making the right choice. I’m helping the planet. The Universe is looking at my shopping cart and nodding Yes.”

Meanwhile, more toxic Roundup blows across America. More Monsanto genes drift from plant to plant, infecting them, changing them.

But the shopper is happy.

On this foundation of sand, the GMO-labeling movement in America was launched and bankrolled, calling itself a revolution.

People in other countries, many of which have already instituted outright bans on GMOs, look at America and think, “What is wrong with those people?”

They can frame that question because they’re outside the shopping trance.

If you look up the major funders of the GMO-labeling ballot initiatives, you’ll see that they, too, are outside the trance. They’re businessmen, and they sell non-GMO food to the shoppers.

They have a (self-serving) vision: when enough foods products in stores are labeled, consumers will choose the non-GMO products and put Monsanto out of business.

That will happen when a feather beats away a monsoon.

The labeling funders and their advocates also carry with them, like an ID, the following assumption:

“Americans are too dumb to understand what havoc Monsanto is actually wreaking; therefore, we can only approach them as consumers.”

This premise has never been tested in battle conditions. But it could be. Now.

Some of you know that Maui voters recently passed a ban against all new Monsanto/Dow GMOs in their county. Well, a judge has unconstitutionally put a temporary block on that, and Monsanto and Dow have sued the county.

If the natural and organic businessmen, who bankroll these losing labeling ballot-initiatives, called a time out, they could turn their ship around and pursue a new venture.


Exit From the Matrix


They could hire a team of lawyers who take no prisoners, a real PR agency (not one who represents Coke and Pepsi), some pro advertising people, and flood Maui (and the online planet) with what I’d call “Monsanto crime reports.”

Bold in-your-face support for the people of Maui, who executed a ban on GMOs.

Broadcast the triumph of Maui and the criminal actions of the judge and Monsanto/Dow, non-stop.

Do something right for a change.

Surpass the shopping trance.

Invent a new reality. The deceptive reality of labeling was invented. So try a different one.

Make it mean something.

Or confess you’re not in the battle to win; you just want to sell GMO labels.

Anti-GMO movement’s PR agency represents who??

Anti-GMO movement’s PR agency represents who??

by Jon Rappoport

November 20, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

Remember this name: The Mellman Group.

In my last several articles, and a number of earlier pieces (complete archive here), I’ve been highly critical of the anti-GMO political movement in America.

Whereas many other nations have chosen to enact full or partial bans on GMO food, in the US we have had…what?

Something much weaker. Ballot initiatives, which attempted to make GMO labels on food mandatory.

The monotonous and soft slogans? “You have a right to know what’s in your food.” “The right to choose.”

All four of these ballot campaigns have failed: California, Washington, Oregon, Colorado.

Where did these dumbed-down weak slogans come from?

They were justified as a result of a 2012 poll conducted for Just Label It, Gary Hirshberg’s organization.

Hirshberg supported, in election campaigns, two of Monsanto’s most influential political allies in the world: Tom Vilsack, now the head of the US Dept. of Agriculture, and Barack Obama, who has opened the door to the largest parade of new GMO crops yet permitted.

Who conducted that poll for Just Label It and Hirshberg?

A powerful PR agency based in Washington DC: The Mellman Group.

In 2012, the Mellman Group’s poll yielded this result: 91% of the 1000 voters surveyed said they wanted GMO labeling, and this conclusion was interpreted as “consumers have a right to know what’s in their food.”

So that became the single mantra in the ballot measures.

Who has The Mellman Group represented? Get a load of a few of its clients:

Coca Cola. Nestle. Pepsico. The FDA. The World Bank. Do these names mean anything special to you?

Coca Cola, Pepsico, and Nestle were major funders AGAINST passage of the GMO-labeling initiatives in Western states.

The FDA is the criminal agency that allowed GMO crops through the door, to begin with, in 1996, by saying, based on zero research, that GMO and non-GMO crops were identical.

The World Bank heads up massive land-grab actions in Africa to turn small farms into corporate plantations, certainly featuring GMO crops.


power outside the matrix


How incredibly bizarre was it to go to The Mellman Group for a good poll that would determine the future course of the anti-GMO movement in America?

Stupid? Crazy? Naïve? Or intentional?

In case you think that PR firms, like defense lawyers, simply take on clients and push any cause for money, consider that the mega-corporations mentioned above, and the FDA and the World Bank, are not just Mellman’s clients. They wield enormous influence in the world. They are special and favored.

Would you walk into Mellman’s lion’s den and ask the firm to do a crucial poll for you, if your objectives were directly opposite to those of Mellman’s biggest clients?

Would you rely on the way the poll was conducted, and the results? Would you base your most important future actions on those results?

Are you kidding?

Who is Gary Hirshberg? And why is he a leader in the anti-GMO movement?

Who is Gary Hirshberg, and why is he bankrolling a losing anti-GMO campaign?

by Jon Rappoport

November 20, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

“Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev recently announced that Russia will no longer import GMO products, stating that the nation has enough space, and enough resources to produce organic food. ‘If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat them. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.’” (Collective Evolution, April 15, 2014, “It’s Official—Russia completely bans GMOs.”)

Gary Hirshberg (twitter) is the Chairman of Stonyfield Organics (twitter). “Love me. Hold me. Spoon me.” Yogurt, smoothies, milk, butter.

He is a founding partner of the Just Label It group (twitter). You know, “consumers have a right to know what’s in their food yada yada yada…”

That was the exclusive mantra of the losing GMO-labeling campaigns in California, Washington, Oregon, and Colorado.

Of all the leaders in the labeling movement, Hirshberg is the most overtly political. Let’s look at his strange track record:

During the 2008 presidential campaign season, his home in New Hampshire was a mandatory stop for candidates. Hirshberg’s first choice for the Democratic nomination was the execrable Tom Vilsack until he dropped out of the race.

Hirshberg hosted gatherings for John Edwards and Barack Obama, and eventually decided to support Obama.

Obama, despite his nods and winks, was, from the beginning, Monsanto’s man in Washington, allowing a parade of new GMO crops to enter growing fields and the marketplace, and appointing staunch biotech allies to key posts in his administration.

Vilsack, Gary Hirshberg’s first choice for President, became the Secretary of Agriculture under Obama. Vilsack is an avid supporter of GMO food. During his term as governor of Iowa, Vilsack was given a Governor of the Year award by the Biotechnology Industry Organization.

Hirshberg serves as a co-chairman of an organization called AGree (twitter). Its objective is to “build consensus around solutions” to “critical issues facing the food and agriculture system.” As researcher Nick Brannigan (twitter) has pointed out, AGree includes, among its foundation partners: the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

It would be hard to find foundations more friendly to, and supportive of, big corporate agriculture and GMOs.

With colleagues like this, why is Hirshberg a leader in the anti-GMO campaign? Good question.

Hirshberg is the author of Stirring It Up: How to Make Money and Save the World. He advocates revolution-by-the-consumer as an exceedingly powerful force.

It may be pretty to think so, but giving American consumers a clear choice about whether to buy GMO or non-GMO food, through labeling, isn’t going to push Monsanto up against the wall.

***It isn’t going to stop Monsanto gene drift into non-GMO crops. It isn’t going to stop the aerial attack of toxic Roundup all over the planet.


The Matrix Revealed


Instead, an all-out counter-assault is necessary. And it doesn’t take a genius to see where to start: TV ads. Web ads.

The objective? To make Monsanto’s threat to health and life and liberty very real and very personal. To make that threat as imminent as it was when millions of students, in the 1960s, saw the military draft as their ticket to going to Vietnam to die.

After you’ve aired a few thousand plays of such attack ads against Monsanto, then you can do polls. Then you’ll see what people believe and think and feel in a new light.

The labeling movement should be a ban-GMO movement. It should be enlisting artists of all kinds to make ads that move people, that attack the poisoners of the food supply, that hold up to ridicule the corporate agenda of monopolizing and degrading the food of this planet.

Gary Hirshberg isn’t the man for the job.

He’s the soft salesman, a businessman who tap dances with strange partners when he enters the political arena. He’s with the wrong people on the wrong side.

He’s calling shots in a campaign that’s designed to lose the war.

Why is that?

Well-intentioned political stupidity? New Age cheese-melt mind? Supreme confidence based on nothing? A desire to issue orders and have them followed?

Or something worse?


power outside the matrix


Coda: Suppose you ran a TV ad in which a salt-of-the-earth farmer was standing on a barren piece of land, the camera zoomed in on him, and he showed his callused and worn hands to the audience and said:

“I am an American farmer. I’ve been on this land forty years. My family has been on this land every day for a hundred and fifty years. I’m a human being just like you. My relationship with Monsanto and their genetically engineered food ruined my farm, my future, and my life…”

Or this: a mother and her little child stand on their lawn in front of the camera. The mother says, “See the rashes and lesions on my son’s body? Do you know where he got them? From the weed killer we sprayed out of a bottle. It’s called Roundup. It’s made by Monsanto. Do you want this for your child?”

Lawsuits from Monsanto? Bring them on.

The discovery and deposition would be a nightmare for Monsanto, as their lies came tumbling out.

TV stations and websites would refuse to run the ads? Terrific. That spawns a global online underground who post the ads anyway, along with: “Monsanto took legal action so you couldn’t see this ad…here are the outlets who refused to run the ads…”

Get the picture?

Gary Hirshberg doesn’t.

Or maybe he does but he isn’t on our side. Never was.

While his soft and weak “label-it” ballot initiatives suck up time, energy, money, and distract people from the real answer—banning GMOs—the clock keeps ticking:

More toxic Roundup invades the air, land, water, humans, and animals; Monsanto genes drift on the wind and infect plants and crops across America.

Which is exactly what Monsanto is hoping for: a fait accompli. Too little, too late.

The label-it ballot initiatives are enabling the goal of Monsanto.

The first time I realized the money and the leadership of the anti-GMO movement was guiding millions of people into ballot-labeling initiatives, I pictured a million people in the street calmly marching in orderly columns against the Vietnam War.

They all held pretty pink signs that said: “You have a right to know that war might be dangerous.”

Of course, there was a forced national draft at the time, so there was no legal right to choose staying at home vs. going to Vietnam.

As regards Monsanto, we are definitely in a “draft” situation. The genes inserted in food crops drift across the land and wind up in all sorts of plants.

Roundup, the highly toxic Monsanto herbicide used to kill weeds on farms, also blows in the wind across America. And the world.

And of course, weeds that are resistant to Roundup are growing tall and choking farms and ruining farmers’ lives.

“Just label it” and “the right to know what’s in your food” are diversions from an uncomfortable truth. Monsanto and other biotech giants are affecting everybody with their crazy technology and their poison.

If these facts had been the springboard, ten years ago, for money, time, and effort—triggering an all-out no-holds-barred attack against Monsanto, instead of soft ballot initiatives—we’d be in a much better place now.

Consider the November 6th Democracy Now! interview with Jerry Greenfield (of Ben and Jerry’s). When asked, “And, Jerry Greenfield, is Ben & Jerry’s opposed to GMOs, per se?,” Jerry answered:

“No, Ben & Jerry’s doesn’t really take a position on that. We always say we’re not scientists. You know, there really haven’t been independent studies. But our issue is simply about transparency, having a consumer have the right to know.”

Really, Jerry? There haven’t been independent studies? You don’t take a position? You know nothing about gene drift and Roundup? How convenient. How pleasant and liberating it is not to be a scientist.

Why don’t you reach out to Jeffrey Smith, author of Genetic Roulette, and ask him to send you links to those independent studies?

Better yet, just drop the know-nothing bullshit front.

Ben and Jerry’s is moving into all non-GMO ingredients by the end of 2014. Do I understand this correctly? You’re doing that just because you want to give consumers an alternative to something you know nothing about?

I see. You’re a kind of theoretician of the free market, an abstract thinker. As a general rule, ahem, it’s better to have more choices. As far as you know, there’s nothing right or wrong about GMO food. But why not expand alternatives anyway?

And while you’re at it, you could also offer several other lines of ice cream sweetened with: NutraSweet, Splenda, Corn Syrup, Glycerine, and the original classic, saccharine.

Because choice per se is good.

Monsanto is just another player in the marketplace. Ditto for Dow and Syngenta. You’re okay, they’re okay, we’re all okay.

Monsanto has its style. Ben and Jerry’s has its style.

Some people like pink, some like powder blue.

It’s all good, or if not, we’ll figure it out by trial and error. Because we aren’t scientists.

And since you’re completely ignorant, Jerry, why not offer a line of Chunky Funky sprayed with Roundup?


power outside the matrix


Here’s a rule for you. When businessmen bankroll a political movement, they cater to the consumer at the lowest common denominator: “what the consumer will pick off the shelf and buy.”

That’s the thrust. The weak soft approach.

Not an all-out attack against the evil—in this case, Monsanto—with powerful in-your-face ads and lawsuits and outrage and revelations about how government is a key partner in crime.

No, attacking evil is out of the question. It’s non-New Age. Bad Karma. The Universe doesn’t like it. Anger is unhealthy.

Instead, put a smile on your face and tell the world, “We don’t know, we’re not scientists.”

Ride that tune into the sunset.

It certainly won’t win a political war, but it’ll get you new customers.

Customers who wear a badge that says, “I’m proud I have the right to choose.”

Toot that horn, shuck and jive. It’s fun, isn’t it?

What’s coming out of your ears, Jerry, ain’t ice cream.

The medical shadow government

The medical shadow government

by Jon Rappoport

Over the last 50 years, tireless researchers have uncovered and revealed the existence of various elites that control governments and populations:

Banks, super-banks, the military-industrial complex, intelligence agencies, psyop propagandists, Wall Street, and so forth and so on.

For some reason, these researchers, many of them, have a blind spot when it comes to the ongoing operations of a shadow medical government.

Blind spot. And also fear. Fear of criticism and ridicule for exposing sacred sacraments of society—like vaccination.

Like psychiatry.

Like (phony) epidemics.

This tells you how strong and pervasive the pro-medical propagandists are. How much media power they wield. How much science they can fabricate. How thoroughly they can discredit and exile their critics, when those critics cut too close to the bone and expose too much truth.

Truth?

For example: by conservative assessment, the US medical system kills 225,000 people a year like clockwork. Which comes out to 2.25 million American killings per decade. (Barbara Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”)

For example: for the 300 official mental disorders, there is not a single definitive physical diagnostic test to confirm the disorder. There are only the highly toxic drugs used to treat patients.

For example, none of the heralded so-called epidemics of the past 15 years have panned out. They were all duds. But much fear (and compliance) was generated.

For example: contrary to assurances that vaccines are remarkably safe, the system for counting severe adverse reactions is irretrievably broken. Using rational guidelines for the US, an independent estimate of between 100,000 and 1.2 million severe reactions per year has been made. (Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center)

The story that emerges from these and other factors has a distinct shape. It is a story of sustained war against the population.

It’s long past the time for the perpetrators to claim innocence or ignorance.

And when researchers rightly claim, for instance, that the real aim of the Surveillance State is control of the population, they should begin to understand that the medical shadow government has the same goal—except that it engages in direct and widespread killing and maiming.

Its agenda involves putting every person on the planet inside a cradle-to-grave system of medical compliance and highly toxic treatment.

This system has an additional effect: as a cover story, through disease invention, it obscures actual environmental causes of illness and death—corporate pollution, sustained generation-to-generation malnutrition and starvation, contaminated water supplies and a general lack of basic sanitation, to name a few.

And as for surveillance, universal medical ID packages and patient treatment records (including psychiatric) are fertile territory, to say the least.

Medical shadow government: a casebook on how to weaken, debilitate, confuse, and kill populations.
