Sorry, Monsanto. The Science Is on Our Side, Not Yours


By Katherine Paul
A few weeks ago, I spoke by phone with Cathleen Enright, executive vice president of the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO). (Long story).
During the course of our conversation, when we touched on the subject of the science behind the debate over whether or not GMOs are “safe” (me arguing that there’s no scientific consensus) Enright said, “Then you must not believe in climate change, either.” 
I glossed over that accusation, though it struck me as odd. And random. Until less than a week later, on March 9 (2015), an article appeared in the Guardian under this headline: “The anti-GM lobby appears to be taking a page out of the Climategate playbook.”
That’s when I realized what I should have known. Enright’s comment wasn’t random at all. It’s just a new twist on an old talking point—from an industry on the verge of crumbling under the weight of an avalanche of new credible, scientific evidence exposing not only the dangers of GMO crops and the toxic chemicals used to grow them, but the extent to which both Monsanto and U.S. government agencies like the EPA, FDA and USDA have covered up those dangers. (Side note: Turns out the authors of the Guardian piece all have ties to, surprise, the biotech industry).
READ HERE for the rest of this article and a few examples of the latest reports, articles and books exposing the dangers of GMOs, Big Ag’s toxic chemicals and evidence of a decades-long cover-up to keep consumers in the dark.

More Black Racism Not Covered By Mainstream Media

Now, had this been a WHITE (and I put this title loosely to rapping) musical artist saying this about BLACK Americans, there'd be shouting from the roof tops, looting, news reporters reporting ad nauseam about racism, media stations and newspapers making it front page news, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and others of their ilk profiting off from it and all of this, just keeping the race wars alive and well!

BUT...when it's the other way around, where are all of these people? Why is it okay to be racist against WHITE folk? Why is it okay to put down people just because of the color of their skin, if it's white? RACISM IS WRONG...not matter what color of skin it is being racist about...PERIOD!

And I whole heartedly agree with the writer of the article that wrote this...Azealia Banks should just go ahead and buy that plane ticket to a foreign country NOW....instead of waiting to make her millions in a country (America) that she hates so much! (She said that she hates "fat white Americans" and Jesus).

Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo Kansas - A Monsanto Puppet


Doubling Down

fund raiser
As soon as the newswires lit up last week with the report from the World Health Organization (WHO) that glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, “probably” causes cancer in humans, Monsanto doubled down on its efforts to deny the truth about what’s in your food.
We doubled down, too. And so did an anonymous donor in New England who stepped up to match your donations to our March online fundraising campaign.
DEADLINE MARCH 31: Support GMO labeling laws today and your donation will be matched by an anonymous donor.
When the damning report on glyphosate broke, the Biotech Bully’s public relations flacks flatly denied the claims, and immediately set out to attack the report and the scientists who wrote it—just as they’ve attacked every other credible scientist and study questioning the safety of the world’s most widely used herbicide.
Meanwhile this week on Capitol Hill, a bill written by industry lobbyists to preempt states’ rights to pass GMO labeling laws, was reintroduced by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.). The bill, dubbed the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, is a desperate attempt by Monsanto and Big Food to keep consumers in the dark about what’s in their food—including “accepted allowable” residues of cancer-causing glyphosate.
It is critical that we keep the pressure on Monsanto and the Junk Food Giants by continuing to launch state GMO labeling campaigns. That’s why OCA is leading the new GMO labeling campaign in Maine this legislative season, and lending background support to other New England states, including Massachusetts, whose grassroots coalitions are working fast and furiously to pass GMO labeling laws before Congress moves to stomp them out.
This latest report from WHO should have every consumer alarmed—and ready to fight back.

It's Back. And It's Worse.

Pompeo
Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) didn’t like the fact that consumer groups renamed his bill to kill state GMO labeling laws the "Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act." So, in order to appear to be on the side of consumers who want the right to know if their food contains GMOs, Pompeo has reintroduced the bill, [LINK TO COME] with a new plan.

The new-and-improved (but really much worse) DARK Act would still do what it set out to do—strip states of their century-old rights to pass food labeling laws. But the bill now also includes a scheme for a national, uniform standard for labeling products non-GMO—a new program that would be overseen by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Really? Pompeo, a member of the Republican Party which purports to stand for states’ rights and is allegedly anti-big government, wants to create yet another federal government-run program? This time, to certify non-GMO? We fail to see how that's preferable to just requiring food manufacturers to do what they already do in more than 60 other countries—simply state whether or not their products contain GMOS?

The DARK Act 2.0 was introduced on the heels of a hearing held this week by the House Committee on Agriculture to, the committee said, examine the “Cost and Impacts of States Implementing Mandatory Biotechnology Labeling Laws.” During that hearing, industry trotted out all of its talking points, including false claims that labeling will cost food manufacturers millions of dollars, a cost they’ll have to pass on to consumers. Never mind that study after study has proven otherwise. That food manufacturers change their labels all the time. And that in countries where GMO labeling is required, costs have not been passed on to consumers.

Pompeo’s bill has nothing to do with protecting consumer or states’ rights, and everything to do with protecting the profits of those companies—like Monsanto and Coca-Cola—who have essentially written this law. It’s an outrage. And we will do everything in our power to stop it dead in its tracks.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Your Representative: Support Consumer and States' Rights. Reject Rep. Pompeo's DARK Act!:


Iceland Jails Its Bankers And Economy Does Better...So Why Can't America Do The Same?

Why do Americans STILL put up with a president, a Congress, a DOJ department and other governmental authorities who are so BLATANTLY corrupt and in bed with the bankers? Can you say...GOVERNMENTAL CORRUPTION? So will someone PLEASE tell me, why aren't the American people standing up and taking charge, and doing their DUTY as described in our Declaration of Independence? 
Here it is in case you're not educated enough to know because it hasn't been taught for a LONG time in our PUBLIC (another word for governmental) schools: 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

If little old Iceland can jail the corrupt economic problem makers, so can America. Don't listen to those corrupt politicians who are in bed with them, and MAKE THEM do the correct and right thing, or DO YOUR DUTY as Americans and get rid of the vermin (both political & economical)...pure & simple!

Hidden Toxins In Your Laundry Detergent That May Be Wreaking Havoc On Your Health

According to the University of Washington, your laundry detergent releases banned cancer-causing chemicals that may be affecting the health of you and your family.

On July 23rd, 2008, the University of Washington did a study on leading detergents. What they found is that 99% of laundry detergents released cancer-causing chemicals that are legally hazardous and toxic by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

Most of them were NOT on the label. These chemicals is so toxic…
  • It is a major ingredient in pesticides. It's used to kill insects.
  • It is extremely harmful to your body because it imitates the hormone 'estrogen'
  • When these artificial hormone like chemicals get into your blood stream through your skin, they may start to cause serious damage to your body.
  • The Journal of Pesticide Reform shows strong evidence that these chemicals cause severe damage to heart and muscle function .
PLEASE STOP: Do not do another load of laundry until you watch our video below. If you take a couple of minutes to watch this crucial presentation, it may change your life, take your health to a new level, and save you a great deal of money that most people simply flush down the toilet...
