Christina Sarich ~ Monsanto Sues Farmers For 16 Straight Years Over GMOs, NEVER Loses

ChristinaSarichWhere is the justice? Since 1997, Monsanto has filed 145 lawsuits, or on average about 9 lawsuits every year for 16 straight years, against farmers who have “improperly reused their patented seeds.”

The biotech giant hasn’t lost a single case, either. Not one. This includes when farmers tried to sue Monsanto over cross-pollination of their organic crops with GMO seed. For example, a federal court dismissed one of those cases, saying that it couldn’t protect Monsanto against unfair lawsuits should they side in the farmers’ favor.

What about unfair business practices? What about 92% of people saying they want their food labeled if it contains genetically modified ingredients? What about the right of farmers to grow food from seed that hasn’t been altered to turn it into a DNA freak show?

The lawsuit representing over 300,000 farmers who wanted the right to grow organic food was also dismissed on the grounds that the plaintiffs had been sued by Monsanto! The judge said the farmers’ reasons for suing the biotech giant were ‘unsubstantiated.’ When Monsanto released a statement to the press, they said the plaintiffs had: Continue reading

Christina Sarich ~ Huge Win: Monsanto Stock Downgraded After Worst Growth In 7 Years

“The firm who conducted the survey said the 50-plus dealers who responded are seeing challenging industry conditions – including greater discounting as a second straight year of significantly lower farm profits forces farmers to watch their spending closely, including on seeds. Could this be due to the outright false advertising by Monsanto that their GMO seeds would increase yields and be impervious to glyphosate and other herbicides?” – C Sarich

cartoon_monsanto4Here’s one for the history books, and a slap on the wrist for stock-holders like Bill Gates and George Soros. Monsanto stock has been downgraded to ‘Neutral’ from ‘Buy’ after an annual seed dealer industry survey showed bleak returns.

This may be the most depressing news in seven years for Monsanto, but great news for the seed industry, which has been monopolized by the chemical peddler since the early 1990s. The target price for (MON +0.1%) has been lowered from $140 to $127. Conditions affecting the downgrade include “greater discounting, reduced trait purchases, reduced spending on seeds, and share gains for non-major seeds brands” – with hardly a mention of the grass-roots, and international efforts of people to shine a light on Monsanto’s illegal influence on the world seed market.

“We are downgrading Monsanto from Buy to Neutral, due to the findings from our seventh Annual Seed Dealer Survey, which came back the most negative for the seed industry in the history of the survey,” Chris Shaw of Monness Crespi Hardt wrote. “The unprecedented results of this year’s survey has led us to be more cautious on Monsanto’s outlook for the current seed selling season.”

The firm who conducted the survey said the 50-plus dealers who responded are seeing challenging industry conditions – including greater discounting as a second straight year of significantly lower farm profits forces farmers to watch their spending closely, including on seeds.

Christina Sarich ~ Is Monsanto About to Unleash GMO Marijuana?

“It is up to you to determine if the fact that Soros owns considerable Monsanto stock shares, and also played a critical role in successfully legalizing marijuana in Uruguay – if there is foul play.” – C Sarich

MonsantoEvilSeedIt has supposedly been in the works for years now, but you’ve likely not heard of it – Monsanto Marijuana. Is that the big push to legalize in the US? Allegations abound that Monsanto and George Soros have been planning to unveil GMO cannabis in Uruguay, the first country to legalize the sale, cultivation, and possession of marijuana earlier this year. Could Monsanto have the same plans for the US?

Did George Soros help get marijuana legalized in Uruguay in order to open the doors for another Monsanto monstrosity – genetically modified marijuana?

If so, it would be a horrendous reversal of wide-spread access many were hoping to obtain for a plant that can literally save lives – should it to be delisted as a Schedule 1 drug by the Feds. If this is all just a ploy for Monsanto and biotech to plant acres of GM cannabis, there is no better time to stop this corporate leviathan than now.

According to the Washington Times:

Through a network of nonprofit groups, Mr. Soros has spent at least $80 million on the legalization effort since 1994, when he diverted a portion of his foundation’s funds to organizations exploring alternative drug policies, according to tax filings”.

Soros has also been listed by the Marijuana Policy Project as one of the “Top 50 Most Influential Marijuana Users.” But he has also been suspect of being a supporter of the One World Government which destabilizes nations, foments civil wars, and overthrows governments through something called the Open Society Movement. One of their goals is to replace natural cannabis with pharmaceutical varieties that are patentable and genetically modified.

Soro’s biography presented by Open Society Foundation seems tenderhearted, even philanthropic, but others warn of his true leanings. One of his ‘philanthropic’ interests is Planned Parenthood, which has been linked to Bill Gates’ eugenicist father, William H. Gates.

Soros is also an open supporter of more power for groups such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, two organizations which are known to support biotech.

Health Impact News has reported:

“. . . the Oakland Institute along with other NGOs, farmer and consumer organizations from around the world launch a campaign, Our Land Our Business, to hold the World Bank accountable for its role in the rampant theft of land and resources from some of the world’s poorest people–farmers, pastoralists, and indigenous communities, many of whom are essential food producers for the entire planet.”

Further, Soros has called Russian President Vladimir Putin “an existential threat,” demanding $20 million to defend the US from Russia in ridiculous politically slanted slandering.  Why? Putin has called GMO makers and GMO marketers criminals who should be jailed or fined, and has banned genetically modified food from his country.

A writer for the European Coalition for Just and Effective Drug Policies (ENCOD) states that Monsanto is already quietly at work on a project to patent a genetically modified cannabis plant in Uruguay.

It is up to you to determine if the fact that Soros owns considerable Monsanto stock shares, and also played a critical role in successfully legalizing marijuana in Uruguay – if there is foul play.

It is suggested that Uruguay is part of a much larger, global plan, and that Monsanto is quietly testing genetically modified THC and CBD to see how they can use it pharmaceutically, and own most of the world’s cannabis plant trade.

Furthermore, German pharmaceutical company, Bayer AG signed an agreement with GW Bayer AG in 2003 agreeing to an information exchange with Monsanto. Monsanto thus supposedly has “discreet access” to scientific studies on the cannabis plant and its genetic modification.

Jon Rappoport ~ Chemical Warfare: The State Of Hawaii Vs. The People

“I’m not a scholar when it comes to traditional Hawaiian spiritual beliefs, but I’m going to make a wild guess and say the secret spraying of chemicals on the people is not part of that tradition.” – J Rappoport

Barry Kurren is the federal judge overseeing Monsanto’s lawsuit against the county of Maui.

Monsanto sued, after the people of Maui dared to say no. After they voted to stop new Monsanto/Dow GMO development on the Island.

This is the same Judge Barry Kurren who ruled against the people of Kauai in a similar case.

As the New York Times put it (8/26/14): “A federal judge in Hawaii has struck down a local ordinance that would have restricted or regulated the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops on the island of Kauai, saying the measure was pre-empted by state law.

“United States Magistrate Judge Barry M. Kurren wrote in one of his two related decisions…‘The court’s ruling simply recognizes that the State of Hawaii has established a comprehensive framework for addressing the application of restricted-use pesticides and the planting of G.M.O. crops, which presently precludes local regulation by the county.’”

Precludes. Local. Regulation.

Ah yes, jurisdiction. Which government entity can decide how much pesticide poison the people of Hawaii should be exposed to? Local, state, or federal?

Judge Kurren shifted the “legal problem” to the State of Hawaii, meaning the government, not the people. Continue reading

Sayer Ji ~ GM Food Causes Deadly Bacteria To Grow In Your Gut

“As research on the toxicity of glyphosate (and Roundup) accumulates, the consumer has only one option available to avoid inevitable harm: namely, avoid at all costs foods that are produced within this chemical-dependent agricultural model,” – S Ji

GlyphosateA new study titled, “The Influence of Glyphosate on the Microbiota and Production of Botulinum  Neurotoxin During Ruminal Fermentation,” confirms a growing suspicion that GM foods tainted with the ubiquitous agrochemical Roundup is causing widespread changes in the microbiome of those who consume them, resulting in bodily changes that are believed to lead to a wide range of lethal diseases.

As we reported in 2012, in an article titled “Roundup Herbicide Linked To Overgrowth of Deadly Bacteria,” a growing body of research points to the world’s most popular herbicide as causing dysbios (pathogenic alteration of gut bacteria), a condition which profoundly affects and alters the so-called holobiont, or total set of organisms that make up our bodily constitution, and as a consequence, health. Because we depend on the proper selection and quantity of bacterial strains with which we co-evolved over countless eons, any significant disruption of the commensal ties to this microbial universe will result in a state of suboptimal functioning, ultimately leading to disease.

Jon Rappoport ~ Is Judge In Maui GMO Case Connected To Monsanto?

cartoon_monsanto4After the citizens of Maui just voted to stop Monsanto and Dow from further GMO development, Monsanto filed suit.

Barry Kurren is the US federal magistrate overseeing the court battle between Maui and Monsanto.

Judge Kurren’s wife, Faye, is the past president of the University of Hawaii Foundation, which is the fund-raising arm of the University.

On September 6, 2011, Monsanto donated $500,000 to the University to establish a Monsanto Research Fellows Fund for “plant science.” Continue reading

Jon Rappoport ~ Smoking Guns: Why Maui Can Defeat Monsanto

“Monsanto’s mindless justification? State and federal laws trump county ballot initiatives. No they don’t. They don’t trump regulations based on fraudulent science. They don’t trump the US Constitution, either.” – J Rappoport

MonsantoTakeYourPoisonƒTo recap: on Election Day, the voters of Maui passed a ballot measure that blocked Monsanto and Dow from developing and using new GMOs.

In the wake of this historic victory to ban GMOs, Monsanto sued Maui.

The forces now aligned against the citizens of Maui include: Monsanto and Dow, the US federal government, and even the Maui County government, which has caved in, opposes the will of its own voters, and is colluding with Monsanto to strike down the ballot measure—after it won.

However, there are smoking legal guns in this case, and they provide an opening for the citizens of Maui.

An opening big enough to drive a fleet of trucks through—if their legal team makes the right moves.

And if—this is a big if—massive international pressure is brought on behalf of the people of Maui and against the people’s opponents.

Who would bring that pressure?

I’m talking about anti-GMO groups all over the planet, as well as indigenous peoples everywhere who share common urgencies to survive.

Here is the first legal opening: Continue reading

Jon Rappoport ~ Alert: Monsanto Is Trying To Crush Maui Right Now

Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.

MonsantoEvilSeedOn Election Day, voters in Maui County passed a local ballot measure blocking Monsanto and Dow from further development of GMOs.

Maui is a very importance piece of Monsanto’s empire. Because of the year-round weather, they can run many, many tests on new GMO crop varieties.

So Monsanto and Dow immediately turned around and sued Maui County.

On top of that, the federal judge in the case is Barry Kurren, who has already sided with Monsanto against Kaui’s attempt to regulate GMOs.

Monsanto’s mouthpiece, John Purcell, released a statement: “This local [Maui] referendum interferes with and conflicts with long-established state and federal laws that support both the safety and lawful cultivation of GMO plants.”

Really.

In that case, why was the ballot measure allowed to be voted on, in the first place?

Why didn’t Monsanto file suit, win its case before Election Day, and knock the measure off the ballot? Continue reading
