I don’t know whether this is the complete record of dangerous pesticides sprayed on Kauai, but it is an enormous list. The category “restricted use” means “even the authorities admit significant toxicity.”

Here’s the link:

Chemical warfare: the State of Hawaii vs. the people

Chemical warfare: the State of Hawaii vs. the people

Barry Kurren is the federal judge overseeing Monsanto’s lawsuit against the county of Maui.

Monsanto sued, after the people of Maui dared to say no. After they voted to stop new Monsanto/Dow GMO development on the Island.

This is the same Judge Barry Kurren who ruled against the people of Kauai in a similar case.

As the New York Times put it (8/26/14):

“A federal judge in Hawaii has struck down a local ordinance that would have restricted or regulated the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops on the island of Kauai, saying the measure was pre-empted by state law.

“United States Magistrate Judge Barry M. Kurren wrote in one of his two related decisions… ‘The court’s ruling simply recognizes that the State of Hawaii has established a comprehensive framework for addressing the application of restricted-use pesticides and the planting of G.M.O. crops, which presently precludes local regulation by the county.’”

Precludes. Local. Regulation.

Ah yes, jurisdiction. Which government entity can decide how much pesticide poison the people of Hawaii should be exposed to? Local, state, or federal?

Judge Kurren shifted the “legal problem” to the State of Hawaii, meaning the government, not the people.

Apparently, because of “jurisdiction,” the people have no right to resist the spraying of poison. This is, you see, a game in which certain chess pieces are superior to other chess pieces, and the bigger and superior ones make the decisions.

Does this give you a clue about what Judge Barry Kurren is going to do to the people of Maui?

Exactly what was and is happening on the Island of Kauai? Dr. Lorrin Pang helps to answer the question. Pang is a Maui County District Health Officer:

“It was disclosed during the class action suit of a biotech company on Kauai that 80+ chemicals are used.”

Dr. Pang is referring to pesticides sprayed on the Island of Kauai. 80.

What are their names? Unknown.

What are their chemical formulas, as revealed by independent investigators? Unknown. Because there is no independent investigation.

Who does know what’s going on? The biotech giants who are doing secret research on Kauai.

The First Hawaiian Bank, on its website (page 4 of 6), names these giants in glowing terms:

“Kauai is an ideal research laboratory for the seed corn industry…there are currently five parent seed corn operations on the island: Pioneer Hi-Bred…Syngenta, Dow Monsanto, and BASF. Dow Agrosciences recently leased 3,400 acres of former sugar land…”

And oh yes. Judge Barry Kurren’s wife, Faye, is a board member of the First Hawaiian Bank.

The giants say to the people: “We’re spraying you with chemicals. We can’t tell you what they are. It’s a secret. But don’t worry, be happy.”

I’m not a scholar when it comes to traditional Hawaiian spiritual beliefs, but I’m going to make a wild guess and say the secret spraying of chemicals on the people is not part of that tradition.

And jurisdiction issues, which come down to which government entity is going to make the people sicker… well, that’s just a cheap hustle to accommodate Monsanto and its partners.

Wait. Newsflash. Apparently, we do know something about the restricted-use pesticides (RUPs) sprayed on Kauai. From stoppoisoningparadise.org:

“Atrazine, for example, is known to cause birth defects, cancer and reproductive issues. Lorsban is known to cause impaired brain and nervous system functions in children and fetuses, even in minute amounts. Some RUPs are shown to effect brain cancer, autism, and heart and liver problems. Children are at especially high risk of illness from pesticide exposure. For these reasons, many of the RUPs used on Kauai are banned in other countries.”

[Update: More info on the restricted-use pesticides used on Kauai can be found here.]


power outside the matrix


All the upcoming court hearings in the Maui-Monsanto suit should be conducted in the following fashion:

The people of Maui, their lawyers and experts should view and take part in the proceedings from, chemically speaking, the cleanest spot that can be found on the Island.

Via Skype, they would watch Judge Kurren, the Monsanto lawyers and their experts, who would sit under heavy spraying of the Monsanto/Dow pesticides. All day long.

Just like in real life.

No coughing allowed.

After all, everybody on Monsanto’s side knows these chemicals are completely harmless. They might even be good for health. They might have a beneficial tonic effect. Who knows? They might be a cure for cancer and heart disease.

You bet. And Monsanto might be the corporate reincarnation of an ancient god, come back to save the people from…clean food and a healthy life.

I’m all for labeling GMOs—only my label would be different. It would read, in very large letters:

“This food product is from Monsanto. They fiddled and diddled with it. They made sure it was sprayed with poison. Do you want to ingest it? Are you sure? Check your head. Are you completely crazy? Suicidal? Did you know Monsanto is subjecting the people of Hawaii to chemical warfare?”

That’s a nice label. It would improve my “shopping experience.”

Dear Judge Kurren: which jurisdictional government entity would approve my label?

Is Judge in Maui GMO case connected to Monsanto?

Is Judge in Maui GMO case connected to Monsanto?

by Jon Rappoport

November 24, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

After the citizens of Maui just voted to stop Monsanto and Dow from further GMO development, Monsanto filed suit.

Barry Kurren is the US federal magistrate overseeing the court battle between Maui and Monsanto.

Judge Kurren’s wife, Faye, is the past president of the University of Hawaii Foundation, which is the fund-raising arm of the University.

On September 6, 2011, Monsanto donated $500,000 to the University to establish a Monsanto Research Fellows Fund for “plant science.”

On July 8, 2010, Monsanto gave $100,000 to University for its scholarship fund.

Judge Kurren’s wife, Faye, has also served as a trustee of the Nature Conservancy, which has a long-established relationship with Monsanto. From the Conservancy’s website: “Monsanto has supported the Nature Conservancy for years.”

Presently, Kurren’s wife is a board member of the First Hawaiian Bank. On its website, there is this quote of “GMO praise” (page 4 of 6):

“Kauai is an ideal research laboratory for the seed corn industry…there are currently five parent seed corn operations on the island: [biotech GM giants] Pioneer Hi-Bred…Syngenta, Dow Monsanto, and BASF. Dow Agrosciences recently leased 3,400 acres of former sugar land…”

These academic, corporate, non-profit, bank connections are part of Hawaii’s overall social and political networks, which form a “community of interest.”

What would happen if Judge Kurren suddenly ruled against Monsanto? How many shocks would ripple out into protected interests? How many social friendships would suddenly collapse? How embarrassing would it be for Faye Kurren?

How much easier would it be to “honor” those connections and friendships and moneyed interests by siding with Monsanto?

Smoking guns: why Maui can defeat Monsanto

Smoking Guns: why Maui can defeat Monsanto

Smoking gun 1: 1993 Joint Resolution of the US Congress, signed into law by President Clinton, 21 years ago today (November 23, 1993)

Smoking gun 2: Hawaii State Constitution

Smoking gun 3: US Constitution

by Jon Rappoport

November 23, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

To recap: on Election Day, the voters of Maui passed a ballot measure that blocked Monsanto and Dow from developing and using new GMOs.

In the wake of this historic victory to ban GMOs, Monsanto sued Maui.

The forces now aligned against the citizens of Maui include: Monsanto and Dow, the US federal government, and even the Maui County government, which has caved in, opposes the will of its own voters, and is colluding with Monsanto to strike down the ballot measure—after it won.

However, there are smoking legal guns in this case, and they provide an opening for the citizens of Maui.

1. An opening big enough to drive a fleet of trucks through—if their legal team makes the right moves.

2. And if—this is a big if—massive international pressure is brought on behalf of the people of Maui and against the people’s opponents.

Who would bring that pressure?

I’m talking about anti-GMO groups all over the planet, as well as indigenous peoples everywhere who share common urgencies to survive.


Here is the first legal opening:

On November 23, 1993, the US Congress passed a Joint Resolution on Hawaii, and President Bill Clinton signed it the same day. It became US federal law 103-150. It’s known as the Apology Resolution.

It concerns the overthrow of the land of Hawaii by the US government:

“[The United States]…apologizes to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the people of the United States for the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii on January 17, 1893 with the participation of agents and citizens of the United States, and the deprivation of the rights of Native Hawaiians to self-determination;

“…[and] expresses its commitment to acknowledge the ramifications of the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, in order to provide a proper foundation for reconciliation between the United States and the Native Hawaiian people…”

Below are key sections of the Resolution. Three years before the introduction of GMO crops in America and the overwhelming spraying of the toxic Monsanto herbicide Roundup, it is as if these sections were written to stop Monsanto and Dow:

“…the health and well-being of the Native Hawaiian people is intrinsically tied to their deep feelings and attachment to the land…

“…the long-range economic and social changes in Hawaii over the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have been devastating to the population and to the health and well-being of the Hawaiian people…

“…the Native Hawaiian people are determined to preserve, develop and transmit to future generations their ancestral territory, and their cultural identity in accordance with their own spiritual and traditional beliefs, customs, practices, language, and social institutions…”

—Deep attachment to the land. Health and well-being of the people. Transmitting the deep belief in the health of the land and the people to future generations. What more do you need?

The Maui ballot measure is most definitely in line with the 1993 Resolution which, as I stated, is also federal law.

The huge GMO/pesticide incursion of Dow and Monsanto on Maui is a direct violation of the US Federal Resolution and Law of 1993.


The next smoking gun is the Hawaii State Constitution.

Article 11, Section 9, “Conservation, Control and Development of Resources”:

“Each person has the right to a clean and healthful environment, as defined by laws relating to environmental quality, including control of pollution and conservation, protection and enhancement of natural resources. Any person may enforce this right against any party, public or private, through appropriate legal proceedings, subject to reasonable limitations and regulation as provided by law.”

Subsequent regulation and law, however, cannot sabotage the basic enumerated right to a “clean and healthful environment.”

Monsanto and Dow can’t legally run facilities on Maui and carry out more than a thousand experiments with GMO seeds and pesticides and avoid independent scientific review.


Finally, there is the US Constitution itself. The smoking gun here can be found in its opening assertion:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Federal law, state law, federal regulations, state regulations—they are all accountable to the Constitution, and the Constitution itself is accountable to its own opening statement, above.

What do “general welfare,” “blessings of liberty,” and “posterity” mean, if the state of Hawaii and the US government can legitimize poison (Roundup) and inserted experimental Monsanto genes, whose negative health impacts on the people of Maui are Monsanto “trade secrets?”

Monsanto’s mindless justification? State and federal laws trump county ballot initiatives.

No they don’t. They don’t trump regulations based on fraudulent science. They don’t trump the US Constitution, either.

The so-called Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution (Article 6, Clause 2) assumes a superior “trumping” law or regulation is, in fact, in line with the Constitution—but a law/regulation permitting the use of toxic GMO technology and Roundup, passed in Congress on the basis of fake and deceptive science, thereby undermining liberty, posterity, and the general welfare, is not in line with the Constitution. It’s a fraud and a crime.


power outside the matrix


The people of Maui are demanding a fair, honest, independent, and comprehensive investigation of the practices of Monsanto and Dow on their land.

That was explicitly stated in their ballot measure that won on Election Day. A stop to all new GMO operations until the investigation is done.

Monsanto and Dow desperately want to avoid such an investigation, because they know what it will bring: exposure of massive crimes. Their lawsuit is about avoidance and nothing else.

Right now, Maui is the center of the GMO universe, and it has spoken against GMOs.

That voice and that vote is the spark. It must not go out.

The whole world needs to know what is happening on Maui. Now.

Massive pressure needs to be exerted to prevent an illegal, unconstitutional, and blatantly evil Monsanto court victory.

Finally, I am making this an open communication to the men who have been bankrolling the GMO-labeling initiatives in the US:

Fund something quite different—bring to Maui the native people from the jungles of Brazil and the Indian reservations of America and the small farms of India and Africa, where Monsanto and other mega-corporations have been destroying and poisoning the land.

Bring these indigenous peoples together on Maui. Let them stand together and expose the combined truth.

Attract the international press, as the Maui court proceedings move forward, under a withering glare of attention.

Make this a story the world has been waiting for.

My Matrix collections: a backgrounder

My Matrix collections: a backgrounder

by Jon Rappoport

There are 3 collections. They all take on the nuts and bolts of consensus reality, which is to say, invented reality.

Not only on political, economic, and social levels, but on the level of the mind.

We live in a limited spectrum of perception. The actual arc is much greater than we experience.

Even more important, the vast majority of human beings live in a small corner of their creative potential.

And of course, that potential includes the capacity to invent new realities. On a vast scale.

When this subject is approached, the usual response is to make reference to some time-honored tradition and pretend it covers and explains everything.

This is not the case.

What history shows is a highly individual thread I call The Tradition of Imagination.

It is open. It does not teach content or substance or doctrine of any kind. It reminds us that imagination/creative force is the key to another level of life.

Not what imagination has already invented, but what it can invent now. In the hands of each unique individual.

That power.

I invite you to read about these 3 collections at NoMoreFakeNews.com.

Follow the money: the Maui-Monsanto war

Follow the money: the Maui-Monsanto war

by Jon Rappoport

November 22, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

This is a stunner.

On Election Day, Maui passed a local initiative blocking Monsanto and Dow from developing new GMOs in Maui County.

According to Ballotpedia, the winning war chest in the election was, overwhelmingly, composed of contributions from five individuals.

Total? $55,000.

The losing war chest consisted of contributions from three groups: Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences, and the Council for Biotechnology Information.

Total? $7,876,000.

I can think of a hundred things to say, but I’ll let most of them ride.

You decide what the lessons are.

Yes, Monsanto is now suing Maui to reverse the results of the ballot measure, claiming state and federal law trumps a county vote.

But check your cynicism at the door long enough to appreciate what it took for the citizens of Maui and the local SHAKA Movement to shock the world.

Authentic hope and change? THIS is what it looks like.
