Monsanto and its cohorts in crime promised us that they would not be using Terminator technology called GURT, or genetic use restricted technology. In fact, the United Nations actually issued a moratorium on the project. So we’re safe, right? Wrong. (more…)

Wisdom says stop a bill that is broad as everything yet more vague even than it is broad.


Wisdom says stop a bill that comes with massive penalties but allows no judicial review.


Wisdom says stop a bill with everything unspecified and actually waits until next year for an unspecified “Administrator” to decide what’s what.  


Where we come from, that’s called a blank check. Who writes laws like that? “Here, do what you want about whatever you want and here’s some deadly punishments to make it stick.”


Wisdom says know who wrote that bill and be forewarned.  


Wisdom says wake up.


Here’s the bill (HR 875). Let’s use our imaginations and extrapolate from the little bit it reveals and from the reality we know.



(a) Authorities- In carrying out the duties of the Administrator and the purposes of this Act, the Administrator shall have the authority, with respect to food production facilities, to–


(1) visit and inspect food production facilities in the United States and in foreign countries to determine if they are operating in compliance with the requirements of the food safety law;


(2) review food safety records as required to be kept by the Administrator under section 210 and for other food safety purposes;


(3) set good practice standards to protect the public and animal health and promote food safety;


(4) conduct monitoring and surveillance of animals, plants, products, or the environment, as appropriate; and


(5) collect and maintain information relevant to public health and farm practices.


(b) Inspection of Records- A food production facility shall permit the Administrator upon presentation of appropriate credentials and at reasonable times and in a reasonable manner, to have access to and ability to copy all records maintained by or on behalf of such food production establishment in any format (including paper or electronic) and at any location, that are necessary to assist the Administrator–


(1) to determine whether the food is contaminated, adulterated, or otherwise not in compliance with the food safety law; or


(2) to track the food in commerce.


(c) Regulations- Not later than 1 year after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Administrator, in consultation with the Secretary of Agriculture and representatives of State departments of agriculture, shall promulgate regulations to establish science-based minimum standards for the safe production of food by food production facilities. Such regulations shall–


(1)   consider all relevant hazards, including those occurring naturally, and those that may be unintentionally or intentionally introduced;


(2) require each food production facility to have a written food safety plan that describes the likely hazards and preventive controls implemented to address those hazards;


(3) include, with respect to growing, harvestingsorting, and storage operations, standards related to fertizer use, nutrients, hygiene, packaging, temperature controls, animal encroachment, and water;minimum hygiene, packaging, temperature controls, animal encroachment, and water;


Ah, such a little paragraph, and so much evil packed in it. 


Notice they mention and storage operations?  


Notice they never mention seeds but they are precisely what those words cover.  


Now, watch how they will be able to easily criminalize seed banking and all holding of seeds.   READ MORE…

Farm Wars

Monsanto is not only overtly taking over the seed market, but covertly also. Did you know that Seminis, “the largest developer, grower and marketer of fruit and vegetable seeds in the world,” is owned by Monsanto? Here is a blurb from the company website:

Seminis sells vegetable seeds in more than 155 countries. In addition to the corporate site, we have 10 regional/country-specific Web sites with useful information about local products and contact information….Seminis’ parent company, Monsanto, announced plans to acquire Netherlands-based vegetable seeds company, De Ruiter Seeds.

Seminis is a wholesaler, so chances are if you purchase seeds at your local store, or website, the company will have purchased seeds from Seminis/Monsanto. READ MORE…

This is a 3 part video series done by the Organization for Competitive Markets regarding its concern that Monsanto is headed for a monopoly over agriculture seeds and our food supply.

Monsanto’s biotechnology patents control over 80% of corn and 90% of soybeans in the U.S. Farmers are going bankrupt, which leads to the importation of more of our food. Watch this video series to understand how the monopoly started, and just where it is headed.

Also, watch a reporter who takes a picture of a Monsanto sign from a public street being chased down by Monsanto security. This abomination of a company will stop at nothing.

By the way, did you know that your friendly fast food giant McDonald’s has partnered with Monsanto?

Grab a cup of organic coffee, which is allowed a 10% rate of GMO contamination to still be certified “organic,” and watch The Future of Food in 9 parts.
