"The Biotechnology Industry Association (BIO), whose most prominent member is Monsanto, the world’s biggest source of GE crops, approached the Obama White House for assistance. In late 2010, the White House formed an interagency “Agriculture Biotech Working Group” consisting of more than 35 officials from ten agencies to promote GE agriculture. This Working Group includes officials from the White House and its OMB, Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and the Trade Rep. It also has officials from State, Justice, Agriculture, EPA and FDA."
They were already in there!
Late 2010 is when Monsanto was given the power to take over...
S.510 cemented and installed Monsanto as our legal defacto King!
"A central task of this Working Group is to legally insulate GE crops on refuges from further litigation."
"“With all the environmental challenges facing this country, why is the White House priority putting wildlife refuges under the thumb of Monsanto?” "
Once again, I would like to point out my major objection to S.510 which was not mentioned once on the Senate or House floors...
Not one word on the Senate floor publicly about Codex Alimentarus- nutrition and chemicals, Monsanto, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), factory farms food and animals problems, USDA already seizing, and targeting who they believe are problems in the system (who happen to be organic and natural health stores, and farms), FDA (the republicans did introduce a bill to put the FDA in it's place at one point though never went anywhere) and other government agencies involved in the so called revolving door with Monsanto, where Monsanto employees are moving back, and forth between government positions (isn't that really a con's Piracy?), the suffering of the soil and problems from GMOs.
Just the fact that Harry Reed had to sneak onto the Senate Floor when no Senator was in there to object; minutes before the Christmas break was about to happen and it passed! Telling....
In S.510 there is a reference to changing USC Code and Federal Law. In 2 strike outs, and insertions; the government has the right to have the "reason to believe". How would you win in court if you had a problem with a USDA inspectors who believe something you didn't? Flabbergasting, and bold...
Stand against Corporate Fascism.
"Everything Hitler did was legal", as Martin Luther King pointed out.
How is it possible to ever win in court if whatever the Gov. Believes is the law?.
Only Kings do that!
(a) In General- Section 304(h)(1)(A) (21 U.S.C. 334(h)(1)(A)) is amended by--
(1) striking `credible evidence or information indicating' and inserting `reason to believe'; and
(2) striking `presents a threat of serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals' and
inserting `is adulterated or misbranded under section 403(w)
Mitt Romney is Monsanto's Main Man...He is actually the one who has sealed the deal for them...
Revolving door is happening in every part of our government!
While working in an official government position:
Elena Kagan, of our Supreme Court, wrote the brief for Monsanto in the Greertson's Farms VS Monsanto Alfalfa GMO case in the Supreme Court this past June 2010. The Monsanto lawyer in the end said in open court; that all objection to GMO was psychologically based. An argument that claims you are imagining this is not a premise to an legitimate argument..
