Monsanto: science and fraud are the same thing

Monsanto: science and fraud are the same thing

Especially when the media agree and offer their seal of approval

Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.”

Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled.

That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.

When you cut through the verbiage that surrounded the introduction of GMO food into America, you arrive at two key statements. One from Monsanto and one from the FDA, the agency responsible for overseeing, licensing, and certifying new food varieties as safe.

Quoted in the New York Times Magazine (October 25, 1998, “Playing God in the Garden”), Philip Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications, famously stated: “Monsanto shouldn’t have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”

From the Federal Register, Volume 57, No.104, “Statement of [FDA] Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties,” here is what the FDA had to say on this matter: “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.”

The direct and irreconcilable clash of these two statements is no accident. It’s not a sign of incompetence or sloppy work or a mistake or a miscommunication. It’s a clear signal that the fix was in.

No real science. No deep investigation. No convincing evidence of safety. Passing the buck back and forth was the chilling and arrogant strategy through which Pandora’s Box was pried opened and GMO food was let into the US food supply.

In order for this titanic scam to work, the media had to cooperate. Reporters had to be a) idiots and b) sell-outs.

Reporters and their editors let the story die. No sane principled journalist would have cut bait, but who said mainstream reporters are sane or principled?

Underneath the Monsanto-FDA buck-passing act, there was a conscious deal to give a free pass to GMO crops. This had nothing to do with science or health or “feeding the world.” It was about profits. It was also about establishing a new monopoly on food.

Not only would big agribusiness dominate the planet’s food supply as never before, it would strengthen its stranglehold through patents on novel types of seeds which were engineered.

It’s very much like saying, “A cob of corn is not a plant, it’s a machine, and we own the rights to every one of those yellow machines.”

How was Monsanto able to gather so much clout?

There was one reason and one reason only. Putting the world’s food supply into fewer hands was, and is, a major item on the Globalist agenda. If it weren’t, the FDA-Monsanto approval scam would have been exposed in a matter of weeks.

Major newspapers and television networks would have attacked the obvious con job like packs of wild dogs and torn it to pieces.

But once the scam had been given a free pass, the primary corporate-government tactic was to accomplish a fait accompli, a series of events that was irreversible.

In this case, it was about gene drift. From the beginning, it was well known that GMO plants release genes that blow in the wind and spread from plant to plant, crop to crop, and field to field. There is no stopping it.

Along with convincing enough farmers to lock themselves into GMO-seed contracts, Monsanto bought up food-seed companies in order to engineer the seeds…and the gene-drift factor was the ace in the hole.

Sell enough GMO seeds, plant enough GMO crops, and you flood the world’s food crops with Monsanto genes.

Back in the 1990s, the prince of darkness, Michael Taylor, who had moved through the revolving door between the FDA and Monsanto several times, and is now the czar of food safety at the FDA—Taylor said, with great conviction, that the GMO revolution was unstoppable; within a decade or two, an overwhelming percentage of food grown on planet Earth would be GMO.

Taylor and others knew. They knew about gene drift, and they also knew that ownership of the world’s food, by a few companies, was a prime focus for Globalist kings.

Control food and water, and you hold the world in your hand.

Here is evidence that, even in earlier days, Monsanto knew about and pushed for the Globalist agenda. Quoted by J. Flint, in his 1998 “Agricultural Giants Moving Towards Genetic Monopolism,” Robert Fraley, head of Monsanto’s agri-division, stated: “What you are seeing is not just a consolidation of [Monsanto-purchased] seed companies. It’s really a consolidation of the entire food chain.”

And as for the power of the propaganda in that time period, I can think of no better statement than the one made on January 25th, 2001, by the outgoing US Secretary of Agriculture, Dan Glickman. As reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Glickman said:

“What I saw generically on the pro-biotech [GMO] side was the attitude that the technology was good and that it was almost immoral to say that it wasn’t good, because it was going to solve the problems of the human race and feed the hungry and clothe the naked. And there was a lot of money that had been invested in this, and if you’re against it, you’re Luddites, you’re stupid. There was rhetoric like that even here in this department [USDA]. You felt like you were almost an alien, disloyal, by trying to present an open-minded view on some of these issues being raised. So I pretty much spouted the rhetoric that everybody else around here spouted; it was written into my speeches.”

Glickman reveals several things in these remarks: he was spineless; people at the Dept. of Agriculture were madly buying into the Monsanto cover story about feeding the world; and there had to be a significant degree of infiltration at his Agency.

The last point is key. This wasn’t left to chance. You don’t get a vocal majority of Dept. of Agriculture personnel spouting Monsanto propaganda merely because the fairy tale about feeding the world sounds so good. No, there are people working on the inside to promote the “social cause” and make pariahs out of dissenters.

You need special background and training to pull that off. It isn’t an automatic walk in the park. This is professional psyop and intelligence work.

It isn’t rinky-dink stuff. To tune up bureaucrats and scientists, you have to have a background in manipulation. You have to know what you’re doing. You have to be able to build and sustain support, without giving your game away.

Psyop specialists are hired to help make overarching and planet-wide agendas come true, as populations are brought under sophisticated and pathological elites who care, for example, about feeding the world as much as a collector cares about paralyzing and pinning butterflies on a panel in a glass case.

Here is David Rockefeller, writing in his 2003 Memoirs:

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

The Globalists play for keeps.

Owning the food of the world is part of their strike-force action plan, and Monsanto is a technocratic arm of that plan.

power outside the matrix

Meanwhile, the controlled press treats the whole sordid Monsanto/FDA story with its time-honored policy of “he said-he said.” This policy dictates that stories merely present both sides of a conflict without drawing conclusions.

Monsanto’s lies and crimes and cover-ups are everywhere. You could wear sunglasses and find them in the dark.

The NY Times and the Washington Post could sell millions more papers on the back of Monsanto stories. It would be a bonanza for them. But no. They don’t care. They’d rather keep declining and losing readers. They’d rather die.

Normally, a business doesn’t commit suicide, especially when it sees exactly how to resuscitate itself. But here we are dealing with an agenda which can’t be disturbed. Globalism, and its agri-techno partner, Monsanto, are creating a planetary future. Major media are part and parcel of that op. They are selling it.

Again, we aren’t talking about sloppy reporting or accidental omissions of fact or boggling incompetence or ignorance about science. We are talking about conscious intent to deceive.

Yes, now and then the controlled media will release a troubling piece about Monsanto. But placement and frequency are everything. How often do these stories run? Do they run as the lead or do we find them on page 3? Are reporters assigned to keep pounding on a basic story and reveal more and more crimes? Does the basic story gather steam over the course of weeks and months?

These are the decisions that make or break a story. In the case of Monsanto and the FDA, the decisions were made a long time ago.

Part of every reporter’s training in how the real world works, if he has any ideals at all, is marching into his editor’s office with his hair on fire demanding to be given an assignment to expose a crime. The editor, knowing the true agenda of his newspaper or television network, tells the reporter:

“We’ve already covered that.”

“It’s old news.”

“People aren’t interested in it.”

“It’s too complicated.”

“The evidence you’re showing me is thin.”

“You’ll never get to the bottom of it.”

“The people involved won’t talk to you.”

And if none of those lies work, the editor might say, “If you keep pushing this, it would be bad for your career. You’ll lose access to other stories. You’ll be thought of as weird…”

This is how the game works at ground level. But make no mistake about it, the hidden agenda is about protecting an elite’s op from exposure.

If NBC, for example, gave its golden boy, Brian Williams, the green light, he would become an expert on Monsanto in three days. He’d become a tiger. He’d affect a whole set of morally outraged poses and send Monsanto down into Hell.

Don’t misunderstand. Brian hasn’t been waiting to move in for the kill. But wind him up and point to a target and he’ll go there.

However, no one at NBC in the executive offices will point him at Monsanto or the FDA.

All the major reporters at news outlets and all the elite television anchors are really psyop specialists. It’s just that most of them don’t know it.

One outraged major reporter who woke up and got out of the business put it to me this way: “When I was in the game, I looked at the news as a big public restroom. My one guiding principle was: don’t piss on your shoes. That meant covering a story that was considered out of bounds. If I talked to the boss about one of those stories, he’d look me up and down and say, ‘Hey, you pissed on your shoes. Get out of here.’”

    Monsanto’s New ‘Herbicide-Resistant’ GMO Crop Slammed by Food Experts

  2. Charles says:

    Monsanto has something in common with many other problem causing companies (Du Pont and Dow Chemical, groundwater pollution)—Pfizer and other Pharma interests—RAND Corporation—Howard Hughes Medical Research Institute—and a very lengthy list of others—key persons are members of an organization nearly no one has ever, ever heard of. This ogganization is the source of their entire coordinated activities.

  3. Newton says:

    We took for granted the food God provided for us since we were created. He gave man good ideas to make things better, not worse. A few evil men perverted & polluted the seeds God gave us. This quasi food is toxic, indigestible, disease causing.

    You cannot run a body on will power alone. GMOs will cause Alzheimer’s & many other diseases. WAKE UP, PEOPLE!

  4. Amaterasu Solar says:

    Reblogged this on Amaterasu's Analysis and commented:
    This kind of power and deception is supported with money. Being able to pay People off, bribing, maybe even setting up blackmail… And surely it is driven by profit motive in both money and the power over Others money offers. Without that money to give this structure, We would not see this.

    So, for all who might want a map to show how We could eliminate the very dangerous tool of money – with new tools We just now have – I offer this:

    T.A.P. – You’re It!

    I hope You choose to read and share awareness that We Humans DO have choices here on this planet. Would love to communicate and hear Your thoughts and answer any questions You may have.

    What is really being said here Jon, is…that globalism has already happened for the most part. The details are being finalized and tied up.
    I mean the institutions are already there; government, education, medicine, media, agriculture, the UN agenda 21 etc, etc. The invisible government has existed in USA since Kennedy, that coup brought America on line. There hasn’t been a fee vote since then. Arab spring and Iraq, that was swift …American puppet states have fallen are falling, consumerism is the motivator..the fix is in on Iran, this latest cluster frak about a silly Sony movie and North Korea, the propaganda machine in action, false flag will happen soon…this will take attention away from anything Monsanto can do, really, I wouldn’t be surprised to see boots on the ground by late spring or early fall.
    This moulding of a planet has been in the planning and operation for close to two hundred years. And we are still, after that great period time are trying to wake up 90% of the population still snoring way…the next couple of years are going to be hard for people who think they have seen the worse.
    They haven’t…not even close. There’s a shit storm coming. A real shit storm.

  6. seamlessone says:

    The FDA may be dropping the ball on the GMO issue, but at least they are protecting us from the real threats out there, like raw frozen coconut water.

    I am happy to see that the FDA has finally pulled this potentially deadly product from the store shelves. Naturally I don’t have any proof that anyone has died or been sickened a single time after hundreds of millions of bottles sold, but nevertheless anything that is not totally sterile cant possibly be safe. Like many others, I look forward to a sterile world, and I trust that the super brilliant people working at the FDA will take a leadership role and be the first to humans to totally sterilize themselves, or at least follow their own protocol and reduce the microorganisms in their body “100,000 fold”.

    Thank you FDA overlords for protecting me and my family from the potential dangers in raw frozen coconut water–all those nutrients and all that hydration just isn’t worth the risk.

    One other request for the overlords….When you are done shutting down the evil purveyors of coconut water, could you please tackle the lurking dangers of microbes on fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers markets…it’s a dirty world out there. I mean, have you seen where farmers grow this stuff? In the dirt!! Yuck!

    • Elsa says:

      Yes, do remember the FDA are our friends. That coconut water will only be safe when artificial sweetener, flavourings, colours and preservatives are added. As for almonds, I’m thankful that the natural enzymes have been destroyed by pasteurisation and that raw milk has been banned in many places. From now on, play safe and stick to the good stuff I.e. Vaccines, processed foods, cigarettes and alcohol. Don’t forget to rush to your doctor for FDA approved drugs when you fall ill…..

      • Just figured out a small part of the scheme: nothing gets past the FDA unless their buddies are getting a cut of the vig (additives, pasteurization, etc.) – it figures that they are actually committed to doing their “job”!

    • From Québec says:

      FDA, another criminal organization.

      It is well known that viruses, bacterias and cancer cells can only live in a pH acidic state.

  7. brad says:

    There’s a few simple steps we could all take: stop eating corn, soy and grains of any kind, grains (especially wheat) aren’t nutritionally necessary to human physiology; start buying locally produced, pasture-raised (grass-fed) meat, poultry and dairy products (it’s around if you look for it) — the animals aren’t grain-fed (including gmo grains) and produce nutrient dense foods; buy locally grown produce, especially organic, and/or start a garden. Why are we pleading with the corporate/industrial food complex and governments to take care of us, or expect them to have our best interest in mind; we can take relatively simple actions as individuals that could, in the long run (or maybe even in the short run), turn the tide. If people don’t really feel its important to take personal responsibility in their daily lives then, what can you say?

    • seamlessone says:

      Brad, those steps are all great, and many of us have already been doing precisely that for decades, and it’s all fine and good until one day you find yourself down wind from a GMO outfit, dumping loads of pesticides and herbicides in the wind. Of course that is where foresight comes into play, and it’s always wise to think 50 years into the future before you plant a garden. That’s why choosing your neighbors wisely is probably the number one most important part of the plan.

      Step 1: Choose the best neighbors on earth. Step 2: Buy from those neighbors. Step 3: Start a farm and be the best neighbor on earth yourself.

      • brad says:

        seamlessone – No doubt, you’re right; it’s not difficult to get caught into a situation like you describe, just by virtue of living on the planet. The more of us that dial out of supporting industrial food production, though, the less it’s going to happen; not to mention the tremendous health benefits that come along for the ride, and the potential subsequent waning of the dubious industrial healthcare system. Obviously there would need to be massive participation, but it has to start somewhere, and it’s something individuals can do. But, in the end, the people get what they choose, whether those of us in the minority agree or not. Always glad to bump into a like mind.

  8. Virs says:

    Everybody and their dog has an opinion, informed or not. What to do about it? I challenge all you smart folks to act. How? I can’t find one un-damned person to participate in anything but chatting, texting, gaming, blogging, commenting…Programs are available to withstand this anti-life onslaught. Isn’t the net for networking beyond news and opinions? Whoa, is this too confrontational?

  9. ozziethinker says:

    Jon, now I see why you have moved focus off Ebola.

    Ironically, as I was reading this article, I saw a vision of the movie “Soylent Green”. I saw panicked people clamouring for market cannibal foods out of ignorance. That was made in 1973 – same year as Rockefeller set up his Trilateral Commission, right?

    Was that the “set up” and had GMO been decided in the 1970’s? I know they were doing a lot of work with wheat then.

    Here’s the $64 question. Ignoring the potential toxicity, body/mind altering issues, once their PATENTED gene corrupt all foods, do they “own” the entire supply? Could they then decide who eats…and not?

    Food for thought


  10. Michael Burns says:

    Good news…and from my point of view, I think you had a lot to do with it Jon.

  11. Mlema says:

    Thank you for this entry. It’s tough to find perceptive writing on this issue.
