Farm Bill gives Monsanto unbelievable powers over US food supply
December 30, 2012
While you are distracted by the horror show of the Fiscal Cliff, Congress is trying to slip by another agricultural disaster -The Farm Bill. The greatest benefit of this bill goes to the Monsanto corporation -you know the chemical bio-ag company that has been charged with piracy in India, banned in South America and Europe and who have proven to be a criminal enterprise.
The large seed manipulator Monsanto spent $7 million on this bill alone to grant itself unheard of power and authority over GMO seed in the US food supply.
Monsanto has always had the intention of complete domination of the food supply over governments, over people and all over the globe.
That is a monopoly by a mega corporation on the very food that keeps humanity alive. They want power and they want it now.
GMO seed contains pesticides -right in the seed germ, and has caused major agricultural damage in many country’s around the world, so much damage that many countries have banned Monsanto from growing any seed on their land. In India, cotton farmers lost everything to Monsanto who promised higher yields, but when crops failed over 100,000 farmers committed suicide over their losses.
While the media is concentrating on just one aspect of the Farm Bill, which is the rise in milk prices, they are ignoring the very dangerous parts.
Who Wrote This Bill and Who Benefits
The Chairman of the Farm Bill is none other than Frank D. Lucas of Oklahoma who received large cash donations to his election campaign.
”The power of Monsanto can be seen through its contributions to Rep. Frank D. Lucas, who’s received the most money so far from Monsanto. Lucas just happens to be chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, through which every farm-related piece of legislation must pass. But he’s certainly not the only one wheel getting greased by this biotech giant,” said Dr. Mercola.
Booby Trapped Farm Bill Gives Monsanto Unprecedented Powers
This bill is booby trapped with unheard of powers given to Monsanto the Genetically Modified Seed company, which deregulates their product.
a) The bill disregards any study on pesticide seeds made by Monsanto and accelerates their products to the marketplace.
b) Unrestricted GMO growing which will invade organic farms completely.
c) Monsanto will own the master seeds to the US food supply giving the corporation a complete monopoly and power over government officials.
d) The Farm Bill states that Environmental Laws do not apply to their products even though GMO plants contain pesticides in the seed germ, and require much more pesticide applied, that run off into the water table will be allowed.
e) The bill gives the US Dept of Agriculture a Nazi like power and authority on GMO crops over any group or agency. In essence this gives the USDA more power and authority.
f) Deadlines on approvals are enforced and make it impossible to study any new Monsanto products or GMO seeds, if the USDA cannot approve the GMO product it will AUTOMATICALLY BE APPROVED.
Whomever wrote this bill was a big-ag corporate puppet for Monsanto and the deep cuts to Food Stamp recipients will leaving people starving in the street hitting the poor with a massive and deadly attack on the very poor.
Passing this bill takes the authority out of the hands of the USDA and gives it to a very powerful and dangerous Corporation that is entirely built around selling pesticides. Like Dow Chemicals, Monsanto is attempting to insert pesticides into plant seeds claiming they need less pesticide spraying which is a lie. Studies have found GMO plants need “more” not less pesticide spray and Monsanto profits soar because they also own patents on Round Up.
The deregulating of Monsanto GMO seed means that no organic farmer can file a lawsuit against Monsanto ever again.
The deregulation of Monsanto GMO means the corporation will control the US food supply completely and totally.
The Farm Bill Deregulation of Monsanto and GMO plants means Americans will be swallowing more pesticides than every before making them sicker and more subjected to diseases.
