For once in recent memory, I’m actually posting the Friday headlines… on Friday! Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
Drug War Profiteers Offer To Buy ALL State-Owned Prisons In 48 States (Private Prison companies want to buy all prisons but only under State guarantee that they will remain at least 90% full. Gee, who benefits from nickel and dime drug arrests?)Continue ReadingLeave a Comment
Vermont has taken the initiative against Monsanto and other biotechnology corporations in launching new legislation that would require the labeling of products containing genetically modified ingredients.
The bill, known as the ‘VT Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act’, was introduced to the Vermont House of Representatives by Representative Kate Webb of Shelburne on February 1st, 2012.
The bill would require the labeling of not only products filled entirely with GMOs, but also for those partially created using GM ingredients.
Perhaps most monumental is the fact that the legislation would prohibit GMO food manufacturers from using promotional labels like “natural,” “naturally made,” “naturally grown,” “all natural,” or any words of similar import.
The bill, which can be read for free online, would require strict and clear labeling on GMO-containing food items. The wording states that in the case of a raw agricultural commodity, the label ‘genetically modified’ would be clearly visible. As for processed food products, the words ‘partially produced with genetic engineering’ or ‘may be partially produced with genetic engineering’ would appear prominently on the front or back of the package....Continue ReadingView Comments (1)
The adulteration and modification of some of the planet’s most widely used crops has changed our food landscape. Chemicals, preservatives, genetic modification and low-cost substitutions and fillers have wrecked meals that were once healthy for us. Stepping inside of a grocery store nowadays, we find ourselves in a dangerous and toxic new world. The introduction of genetically modified organisms into the food supply in the 1990′s, coupled with rampant use of carcinogens such as aspartame, and substitutions like high fructose corn syrup, set the perfect stage to form a deadly concoction known as processed food. Sadly, this is what encompasses the average American diet.
Genetically modified foods are now found in approximately 80% of all food in a typical grocery store.
A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same....Continue ReadingView Comments (7)

We have a Right to Know.
93% of Americans want the FDA to label genetically engineered foods. Watch the new video from Food, Inc. filmmaker Robert Kenner to hear why we have the right to know what’s in our food. Will you join these individuals — and over half a million Americans — in contacting the FDA to require the labeling of genetically engineered (GE) foods?
Tell the FDA to require GMO food labels: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or sign the legal petition to the FDA at Just Label It.
A legal petition (Docket # FDA-2011-P-0723-0001/CP) has been filed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calling on the FDA to label genetically engineered (GE) foods....Continue ReadingLeave a Comment
Here is a round-up of some of today’s headlines –

Here’s the key phrase:
What is more disturbing is that even at a lower, presumably “non toxic” concentration of 1 ppm of Roundup, testosterone concentrations were observed to decrease by 35%.

In a disturbing study published last month (Dec. 2011) in the Journal of Toxicology in Vitro, researchers found that Monsanto’s popular “weed killer” known as Roundup, which has already been linked to over 25 adverse health effects, is also capable of interfering with and/or harming the male reproductive system.
Researchers tested Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide, on mature rat testicular cells at a concentration range between 1 and 10,000 ppm, which they described as “the range in some human urine and in environment to agricultural levels.” They found that within 1 to 48 hours of Roundup exposure testicular (Leydig) cells were damaged or killed.
What is more disturbing is that even at a lower, presumably “non toxic” concentration of 1 ppm of Roundup, or glyphosate by itself, testosterone concentrations were observed to decrease by 35%.
Keep in mind that 1 ppm of Roundup is an infinitesimal concentration....Continue ReadingView Comments (3)
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock. Monsanto is the world’s largest producer of genetically modified food, which has been tied to numerous health ailments such as sterility, infant mortality, spontaneous abortion in livestock, organ failure, and now their flagship Bt corn strain is starting to fail.
If you’re not familiar with Bill Gates’ philanthropic side, you’ll discover that during a speech on vaccines, climate change, and global poverty, he said, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
Spoken like a true eugenicist! He wants to kill 15% of the global population through vaccines. His Foundation has already been responsible for forced vaccinations at gunpoint, so I suppose this isn’t any new surprise.
When statements and actions such as those are coupled with large investments in chemical companies that create genetically altered food, it paints a very worrisome picture that involves population control....Continue ReadingView Comments (6)

The economic plundering of our world is well under way, with the Goldman Sachs “white shoe boyz” taking over entire national economies as they confiscate the wealth of the working class. They aren’t the only evildoers wreaking havoc across the world, of course: A cabal of powerful and criminally-insane corporations are destroying the future of food, plotting to keep citizens suffering from disease, and even perpetuating war so they can earn obscene profits from selling more bullets, bombs, and missiles.
You can help resist this economic imperialism by taking simple actions that protect your wealth and pull it out of the hands of the globalists who are actively destroying our world.
This is called radical self-reliance and it is something that we will need to begin learning before we can ever help others.
Here are five of the most powerful action steps to take that can turn the tables and restore economic sovereignty at every level — household, community, state, nation and the entire globe.
If you shop based solely on price and not ethics, you are take part in the economic destruction of our world....Continue ReadingLeave a Comment

The Environmental Protection Agency has recently found that Monsanto’s genetically modified corn, which was created to kill insects, may be losing its effectiveness against rootworms.
The genetically modified corn has been engineered with Bacillus thuringiensis (BT), an insecticide harnessing an insect-killing protein.
For more on the dangers of GMO food, see my lengthy list of articles here.
The EPA found that the resistant rootworms, which are evolving to resist the insecticide, are currently found in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska. After the EPA evaluated documented cases of severe crop damage as well as reports from entomologists, the EPA stated “Monsanto’s program for monitoring suspected cases of resistance is ‘inadequate’”.

As you read this article, I urge you to refresh your memory with the absolutely horrid side effects and dangers of genetically modified foods. Organ failure, 2nd and 3rd generation reproductive issues, fertility complications, spontaneous abortions, kidney problems, and more! There is no science proving that GMO biotech creates higher, more nutritious yields, while study after study shows that quality, organic farming and permaculture techniques can boost yields several times over while boosting the nutrition and profit from the field. GMOs are outright banned in several countries and many more require strict labeling of any genetically engineered ingredients. America? Hell, most Americans haven’t even heard of GMOs, let alone have labeling requirements!
And Bill Gates? Don’t get me started. He supports forced vaccinations, some even at gun point! He is also helping develop a male contraceptive. He said not long ago, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” Bill Gates – a eugenicist who’s company worked side by side with the Nazis, controls vast sums of money and spheres of influence, wants to alter your food. ...Continue ReadingView Comments (3)

As courts and bureaucrats continue to assert that citizens have no fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice, we find Monsanto lurking nearby. The Wisconsin judge who recently ruled that we have no right to own a cow or drink its milk resigned to join one of Monsanto’s law firms.
Former judge Patrick J. Fiedler now works for Axley Brynelson, LLP, which defended Monsanto against a patent infringement case filed by Australian firm, Genetic Technologies, Ltd. (GTL) in early 2010.
In another link, Myriad Genetics, which holds the exclusive U.S. patent on human genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, granted the license to GTL in 2002. These human genes are associated with breast and ovarian cancer.
In 2009, the ACLU and the Public Patent Foundation (PubPat) sued the PTO, Myriad Genetics, and principals at the University of Utah Research Foundation, charging that patents on genes are unconstitutional and invalid. The suit also charges that such patents stifle diagnostic testing and research that could lead to cures and that they limit women’s options regarding their medical care....Continue ReadingView Comments (11)

I posted this on the TruthisTreason.net Facebook page, but figured I’d make an actual article out of it since it was so well received.
In this video, Adam Kokesh (Formally the host of RT’s Adam vs. The Man) interviews the leader of Food, Not Bombs regarding the Parks Service harassing him for giving away free apples to nearby protesters. They informed him this was against the law. However, if he were giving away oranges or bananas, it would be fine. An interesting bit towards the end is when the leader reveals that his grandfather had actually been a senior Parks Service member and had been responsible for securing the tract of land that was later turned into that particular National Park....Continue ReadingView Comments (1)

I’ve written extensively about GMO corn and grass-fed cows. This article is just another study that validates the dangers involved with consuming genetically modified foods. Not only are cows designed to eat grass, but after feeding them GMO corn and soy, they develop a range of problems. Those problems effect the steak on your plate. That’s why many large commercial feedlots use so many antibiotics on their cattle! If they didn’t, they would be dead after only a few months. There are numerous other studies that show reproductive issues in 2nd and 3rd generations, sterility in male species, organ failure, spontaneous abortions, and many more side effects....Continue ReadingView Comments (2)
