Warning to Trump: don’t approve GMO, pesticide, FDA horror show

Warning to Trump: don’t approve GMO, pesticide, FDA horror show

You are incompetent on these vital subjects

Don’t plunge ahead

Stop thinking about jobs, jobs, jobs for two seconds

by Jon Rappoport

December 31, 2016

In a previous article on Donald Trump, I wrote: “I think Trump favors jobs, all jobs, and will go to extremes to create them…He’ll find ways to allow the FDA to license new drugs more quickly, thus maiming and killing more Americans. He’ll cast a blind eye toward big corporate toxic GMOs/pesticides.”

I want to strengthen that warning.

First of all, the FDA isn’t being too careful in their drug approval process, as Trump team members suggest. It’s the opposite. The FDA is in the pocket of pharmaceutical companies. The president-elect should take notice of the famous July 26, 2000, review in the Journal of the American Medical Association, by Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public-health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

Starfield concluded that FDA-approved medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans a year. That would be 1.06 MILLION deaths per decade. Speeding up their drug-approval work now, the FDA would add many MORE dead Americans to their “credit.”

On the issue of GMO/pesticide safety, I could cite many references which eradicate the official claim that these substances are safe. But let’s look at the primary facts surrounding the original approval of GMO crops (and their attendant pesticides) in the US.

When you cut through the verbiage, 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.”

This buck-passing, 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 the fix was in.

There was no science to back up the claim that GMOs were safe.

My belief, at the moment, is that Trump will screw all this up completely. His focus on jobs and the economy will lead him into doing grave damage—just as Obama has, just as Hillary Clinton would have.

The corporate media, their corporate experts and allies, and their government friends have low-keyed the whole GMO-pesticide-FDA horror show for a long time.

We need a president who will go against the tide.

On these issues, Mr. Trump, through ignorance, inattention, unconcern, whatever, is on the verge of becoming a Big Pharma Big Biotech shill.

      Thank you, Dr. Ball, for having the ability to comprehend climate change and the courage to challenge obviously bogus “climate science” from former Vice President Al Gore and the United Nation’s IPCC.

      Here’s the rest of the story:

      1. In 1905, Einstein realized the whole universe is dynamic and alive because there is abundant “free energy” (E) stored as mass (m) in each atom of matter.

      2. More than 99% of the mass and energy of every atom is in its nucleus. (Chemical reactions re-arrange electrons and release <1% of the energy released in nuclear reactions.)

      3. In 1922, Aston received the Nobel Prize for measuring the mass of every atom and expressing its mass as its nuclear packing fraction.”

      4. On 6 & 9 Aug 1945, Hiroshima & Nagasaki were destroyed by releasing releasing nuclear energy from uranium-235 and plutonium-239, respectively.

      5. On 24 Oct 1945, nations and national academies of sciences were united to save the world from nuclear annihilation by using a “trick” from one of Hitler’s nuclear scientists to hide the source of energy in atomic bombs – NEUTRON REPULSION.

      6. The first scientist sent to examine the ruins of Hiroshima in August 1945, Prof. PAUL KAZUO KURODA of the Imperial University of Tokyo risked the rest of his life to keep Prof. Carl von WEIZSACKER’s misleading
      nuclear binding energy equation from being used to deceive the entire world population about abundant “free energy” in every atom.

        Thanks for the Link , heres some more , GMOS ARE INHERENTLY UNSAFE
        There are several reasons why GM plants present uniquedangers. The first is that the process of genetic engineeringitself creates unpredicted alterations, irrespective of whichgene is transferred. This creates mutations in and around theinsertion site and elsewhere [54]. The biotech industryconfidently asserted that gene transfer from GM foods wasnot possible; the only human feeding study on GM foodslater proved that it does take place. The genetic material insoybeans that make them herbicide tolerant transferred intothe DNA of human gut bacteria and continued to function[55]. That means that long after we stop eating a GM crop,its foreign GM proteins may be produced inside ourintestines.
        GM DIET SHOWS TOXIC REACTIONS IN THEDIGESTIVE TRACT
        The very first crop submitted to the FDA’s (Food & DrugAdministration) voluntary consultation process, theFlavrSavr tomato, showed evidence of toxins. Out of 20female rats fed the GM tomato, 7 developed stomach lesions[56]. The type of stomach lesions linked to tomatoes couldlead to life-endangering hemorrhage, particularly in theelderly who use aspirin to prevent blood clots [57]. Dr.Pusztai believes that the digestive tract, which is the first andlargest point of contact with foods, can reveal variousreactions to toxins and should be the first target of GM foodrisk assessment. Mice fed potatoes engineered to produce theBt-toxin developed abnormal and damaged cells, as well as
        proliferative cell growth in the lower part of their smallintestine (ileum) [58]. Rats fed potatoes engineered toproduce a different type of insecticide (GNA lectin from thesnowdrop plant) also showed proliferative cell growth inboth stomach and intestinal walls.
        GM DIETS CAUSE LIVER DAMAGE
        Rats fed the GNA lectin potatoes had smaller andpartially atrophied livers [59] Rats fed Monsanto’s Mon 863corn, engineered to produce Bt-toxin, had liver lesions andother indications of toxicity [60]. Rabbits fed GM soyshowed altered enzyme production in their livers as well ashigher metabolic activity [61]. Rats fed Roundup Readysoybeans also showed structural changes in their liver [44].
        GM FEED ANIMALS HAD HIGHER DEATH RATESAND ORGAN DAMAGE
        The cells in the pancreas of mice fed Roundup Ready soyhad profound changes and produced significantly lessdigestive enzymes [62]; in rats fed a GM potato, thepancreas was enlarged [60]. In various analysis of kidneys,GM fed animals showed lesions, toxicity, altered enzymesproduction or inflammation [61-63]. Enzyme production inthe hearts of mice was altered by GM soy, [61] and GMpotatoes caused slower growth in the brain of rats [60].
        REPRODUCTIVE FAILURE AND INFANTMOTALITY
        The testicles of both mice and rats fed roundup readysoybeans showed dramatic changes. In rats, the organs weredark blue instead of pink. In mice, young sperm cells werealtered [64]. Embryos of GM soy-fed mice also showedtemporary changes in their DNA function, compared to thosewhose parents were fed non-GM soy [65].

    • Terri says:

      Dr Mercola has reams of info on the damage glyphosate does to the body and to the environment. Monsanto knew and covered it up. This is only part of the reason gmo s are so damaging.

      We adopted three guinea pigs who were previously fed gmo grains and pellets, no one makes an organic feed for rodents. I took them off of the crap and only gave them organic, the two older ones both developed huge tumors and the youngest, who had the least exposure has none.

      veterinarians are complicit by claiming its natural for old animals to get cancer. cancer is not natural.

      its too bad humans are taught to hate themselves and most have an unconscious death wish, if they truly loved and respected themselves they would never participate in this destruction.

      We do know that GMO’s weaken the immune system. There is a link between consuming BT toxins and ‘Leaky Gut Syndrome’. This alone should scare the hell out of every human on the planet. A “leaky” gut is nothing more than slow, painful death.

    Agenda comes first,… financial gain is simply a means to achieving the agenda. Within the existing deviously formulated reality, there are no purely compassionate options left in diverting or halting the speeding freight train.

  4. Oliver K. Manuel says:

    Thank you, Jon, for the warning to President-elect Trump about the National Academy of Sciences, a private, self-perpetuation group of once-distinguished scientists and scholars that betrayed the public trust after WWII.

    My research mentor, the late Professor Paul Kazuo Kuroda (1917-2001), risked his life to make certain the energy that powers the Sun was not hidden from the public by the tyrannical government that took control of the world after WWII.

  5. From Quebec says:

    “The Donald”, as NaturalNews has reported is a consumer of organic food. His daughter, Ivanka, has said that the whole family consumes mostly fresh, organic meals which she often prepares herself.

    In addition, Trump’s children help oversee foods served at the family hotels – meals that include vegan, organic and gluten-free in-room dining choices. And when it can, the hotel chain obtains locally-grown organic foods as a way of giving back to the communities they serve. The family’s diet even has a name: The Trump Wellness Plan, which fits with Trump’s overall health and fitness lifestyle.

      @ From Quebec

      Too funny. The “Donald” said in an appearance on Dr.Oz a few months back that he routinely eats fast food because, he said, “at least you know what they are putting in it.” He also says he takes a statin for cholesterol:

      http://thedailybanter.com/2016/09/trumps-new-medical-letter-is-likely-as-bogus-as-the-first-one/

      So, how’s he going to promote healthy diet and a wellness plan to the American people if he routinely eats fast food? Do as I say…and not what I do? And how’s he going to crack down on the FDA on the concerning drug issues if he’s using a cholesterol drug? Nothing like a conflict of interest on that one (?).

      In addition, Trump is staying quiet about whether or not he has any immunization history:

      https://www.statnews.com/2016/09/13/clinton-trump-health-records/

      I think you’ve forgotten a valuable history lesson in American politics. Politicians will say anything to get elected. And once elected they don’t have to keep any of their promises. Many of them probably laugh to themselves about how stupid the American people are in believing those “feel-good” campaign promises that got them elected in the first place. IMO, it’s all about ego and power…imagine that; ego and power in American politics? 😦

  6. From Quebec says:

    Donald Trump says “Too much Monsanto in the Corn Creates Issues in the Brain” about Iowa Voters

    Clearly, the message of Monsanto’s legacy of producing toxic products has gotten to Donald Trump.

    The real question is, what does billionaire Donald Trump know about Monsanto’s products that the U.S. Senate is afraid to admit?

  7. GB says:

    I hope there are enough tweets out on this “the Don” can catch, otherwise it will just be profit over every thing again….. just look at all his appointees, NIGHTMARE!

    • From Quebec says:

      Are you kidding GB

      His appointees are great. Just wait and see. Trump is one smart cookie, He will get all the information he needs from them, and if they do not do what he wants, he will fire them and replace them.

      I’m am not worried one bit. Smart thinking, Smart President.

  9. Greg C. says:

    Way too early to have these concerns about Trump. His vision is much wider than just jobs. But he needs to overcome the enormous negative press, and get congress on his side, and jobs is the logical place to start. It’s all about strategy, and timing. I just finished Art of the Deal, and that book made me appreciate his genius in those areas, and boosted my confidence in his abilities.

  10. Ah the double standards of “rich” and “poor”, Jon

    I doubt Monsanto (or whatever they’re called now) executives wouldn’t touch GMO with a ten foot pole.

    Trump hasn’t signed in yet and already his “empire” is crashing around him. He said what Bernie said in a way that people wanted to hear. No one really believed he would deliver. Some hoped he would, but never really believed it.

    As the countdown runs, the signs are bad…..

    If he does deliver, he will surprise everyone in some ways.

    Happy New Year (it may as well be happy as sad)
    OT

  11. Scireader says:

    Unfortunately all biotech seed developers and pesticide makers use the philosophy of “sacrificing lives for profit is good”. These companies test only to make sure there is no acute toxicity, such as happened with the synthetic L-tryptophan by Showa-Denko (deaths) and Starlink corn (severe allergic reactions requiring medical attention). They do not concern themselves with chronic toxicity, which shows up after 10-20-30 years of consumption of GMO crops with pesticides in the form of organ failures, cancers, and other chronic deadly diseases. Their approach to chronic toxicity is “don’t look, don’t find, don’t tell”.

  12. Greg C. says:

    Wow! Trump leads off, 10 day before inauguration, with a commission on vaccine safety, headed by RFK Jr, who launched the World Mercury Project to help eliminate exposure to mercury. I think this proves that Trump has more than just jobs on his mind. See http://www.infowars.com/trump-taps-robert-f-kennedy-jr-to-head-new-commission-on-vaccine-safety-and-scientific-integrity/.
