Evils converging: Monsanto, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and global food dominance

tpp monsanto
"Control oil and you control nations," said US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. "Control food and you control the people."

Global food control has nearly been achieved, by reducing seed diversity with GMO (genetically modified) seeds that are distributed by only a few transnational corporations. But this agenda has been implemented at grave cost to our health; and if the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) passes, control over not just our food but our health, our environment and our financial system will be in the hands of transnational corporations.

Profits Before Populations

According to an Acres USA interview of plant pathologist Don Huber, Professor Emeritus at Purdue University, two modified traits account for practically all of the genetically modified crops grown in the world today. One involves insect resistance. The other, more disturbing modification involves insensitivity to glyphosate-based herbicides (plant-killing chemicals). Often known as Roundup after the best-selling Monsanto product of that name, glyphosate poisons everything in its path except plants genetically modified to resist it.

Glyphosate-based herbicides are now the most commonly used herbicides in the world. Glyphosate is an essential partner to the GMOs that are the principal business of the burgeoning biotech industry. Glyphosate is a "broad-spectrum" herbicide that destroys indiscriminately, not by killing unwanted plants directly but by tying up access to critical nutrients.

Because of the insidious way in which it works, it has been sold as a relatively benign replacement for the devastating earlier dioxin-based herbicides. But a barrage of experimental data has now shown glyphosate and the GMO foods incorporating it to pose serious dangers to health. Compounding the risk is the toxicity of "inert" ingredients used to make glyphosate more potent. Researchers have found, for example, that the surfactant POEA can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells. But these risks have been conveniently ignored.

The widespread use of GMO foods and glyphosate herbicides helps explain the anomaly that the US spends over twice as much per capita on healthcare as the average developed country, yet it is rated far down the scale of the world's healthiest populations. The World Health Organization has ranked the US LAST out of 17 developed nations for overall health.

Sixty to seventy percent of the foods in US supermarkets are now genetically modified. By contrast, in at least 26 other countries - including Switzerland, Australia, Austria, China, India, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Mexico and Russia - GMOs are totally or partially banned; and significant restrictions on GMOs exist in about sixty other countries.

A ban on GMO and glyphosate use might go far toward improving the health of Americans. But the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a global trade agreement for which the Obama Administration has sought Fast Track status, would block that sort of cause-focused approach to the healthcare crisis.

False flag threat? Israeli minister warns accord could end in suitcase bomb

An internationally isolated Benjamin Netanyahu termed the world powers' agreement with Iran a "historic mistake" that advanced Tehran towards nuclear weapons capability

."What was agreed in Geneva is not a historic agreement but a historic mistake," the Israeli Prime Minister told his cabinet hours after the accord was reached. "Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has made a significant step to attaining the most dangerous weaponry in the world."

While the agreement limits Iran to enriching uranium by a maximum of 5 per cent, it casts aside Israel's demand that enrichment be eliminated entirely, something seen in the West as unrealistic.

Israel, believed to be the only nuclear power in the region, says allowing any enrichment is dangerous since Iranian centrifuges could quickly convert even low-grade uranium to weapons grade.

Billionaire Hollywood producer behind Stone's 'JFK' movie, Aaron Milchan, was secret operative for Israel's illegal nukes program and Mossad arms dealer

Hollywood producer gives interview in which he confirms earlier claims that he was an arms dealer

The Hollywood producer behind box office hits including Fight Club, Pretty Woman and LA Confidential has spoken about his life as an Israeli secret agent and arms dealer, saying he was proud of working for his country.

Arnon Milchan gave a lengthy interview to the Israeli documentary programme Uvda, broadcast on Monday on Channel 2, confirming claims made earlier in an unauthorised biography that he worked for an Israeli agency which negotiated arms deals and supported Israel's secret nuclear weapons project.

Comment: Ahem, he's referring to the Mossad.

Milchan, who was born in Israel, was recruited as a young businessman to the Bureau of Scientific Relations by Shimon Peres, now Israel's president, in the 1960s. The bureau, which worked to obtain scientific and technical information for secret defence programmes, closed down in 1987.

Milchan, 68, is now the chairman of New Regency, which has produced more than 120 Hollywood movies since the 1970s, working with actors and directors such as Robert de Niro, Martin Scorsese, Roman Polanski, Oliver Stone, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck.

Comment: Apparently Regency's first movie was Oliver stone's JFK.

Comment: Guess what other movie Milchan produced?

Oliver Stone's JFK.

As well-made and informative as Stone's movie is, it's quite possible that, unbeknownst to Stone even, the Zionists stepped in to 'help' this movie in order to keep the focus on U.S. intelligence involvement, to the total exclusion of any mention of possible Israeli involvement.

How many Americans know today that JFK was their only President to ever confront the Israelis over their nuke program and to draft a UN resolution in FAVOR of the unconditional right of return for Palestinian refugees?

When it comes to Israeli interests, people have met untimely ends for way less...

Who killed Kennedy: CIA, LBJ, or the Truly "Unspeakable"?


Tehran accord designed to fail?

Iran santions

The "first step" agreement between Iran and the United States that was sealed in Geneva over the weekend is supposed to lead to the negotiation of a "comprehensive settlement" of the nuclear issue over the next six months, though the latter has gotten little attention.

But within hours of the agreement, there were already indications from senior US officials that the Barack Obama administration is not fully committed to the conclusion of a final pact, under which economic sanctions would be completely lifted.

The administration has apparently developed reservations about such an "end state" agreement despite concessions by the government of President Hassan Rouhani that were more far-reaching than could have been anticipated a few months ago.

The Rouhani government's moves to reassure the West may have spurred hopes on the part of senior officials of the Obama administration that the United States can achieve its minimum aims in reducing Iran's breakout capacity without giving up its trump cards - the harsh sanctions on Iran's oil expert and banking sectors.

Paranoia strikes deep... White House orders review of 5 million security clearances

The Clapper!

U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
Officials in the Obama administration have demanded that federal government agencies evaluate how a total of five million Americans have been granted classified information security clearances and, of those, how many truly require it.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in a document obtained by Politico, questioned why more than 1.4 million people have been authorized for a "Top Secret" clearance level. Approximately 3.5 million Americans have lesser security clearance levels.

Pundits and lawmakers alike have wondered how secure the vetting process is after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and suspected Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis were granted security clearance.

"I write to express my concern about threats to national security resulting from the increasing number of people with eligibility for access to classified national security information, particularly Top Secret (TS) and Top Secret/Secure Compartmented Information (TS/SCI)," Clapper wrote.

Greedy overlords: Over $41bn in student loan profits for US government

Student loan protests

The US government books $41.3bn in student loan profits
The federal government of the United States made a profit of $41.3 billion on student loans for the 2013 fiscal year.

Although the profit is $3.6 billion less than the that the US government reaped from distressed borrowers the previous year, it is a profit higher than that made by all but two companies, Exxon Mobil and Apple, in the world.

According to David Jesse, who writes for the Free Press, the profit is enough to pay for the tuition of nearly 3,000,000 Michigan residents at the University of Michigan for one year.

Earlier in July, the US Senate approved a bill that would link federal student loan rates to financial markets.

The bill, which was passed 81-18 and was endorsed by the White House, would lower the interest rates on federal student loans to 3.86 percent down from the fixed rate of 6.8 percent but interest rates could increase if the financial market improves as expected.

Comment: To say that "It's actually neither accurate nor fair to characterize the student loan program as making a profit," is an outright lie. Student loans work as a money making machine for the government.

Especially considering that government borrowing interest rates are as close to nil as possible.As an example, the interest on US treasury bills is 0.13% for 1 year loans:

Israeli nukes threatening region, world

A view of the Israeli regime’s Dimona nuclear facility located in Negev Desert.
The so-called "Iran nuclear crisis" is over. Now, what will the nuclear non-proliferation specialists do to occupy their time?

Maybe they should target a dangerous, fanatical, hyper-aggressive, expansionist Middle Eastern regime that really IS building nuclear weapons.

That would be Israel.

There was never any real nuclear crisis in Iran, but there is a very real nuclear crisis in Israel.

Even the American CIA, which holds no love for the Islamic Republic, has repeatedly admitted that Iran is not building nuclear weapons. That hasn't stopped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from saying that Iran is just months away from a bomb. According to Netanyahu, Iran has been months away from a bomb for decades. Fifty years from now, whoever is in charge of Israel's Likud Party - in the unlikely event that Israel and its Likud Party exist - will still be screaming from the rooftops that Iran is just months away from a bomb.

The reason Israel will probably not exist in fifty years has nothing to do with Iranian bombs. The real threat to Israel is the insanity of its leaders.

It's as if the Zionists have walked into a time warp. For them, the clock has stopped; they are permanently stuck in an alternative reality in which the only hour is "three months to Iran-bomb."

Israeli officials knew White House was holding secret talks with Iran

President Barack Obama meets Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Sept. 30 meeting in which he revealed he had authorized secret talks with Iran.
"We felt like we were being stabbed in the back."

Israeli officials knew they were being kept in the dark as the U.S. conducted secret talks with Iran, and the knowledge that the White House was "going behind Israel's back" was one of the key sources of tension between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama, according to a senior Israeli minister and other Israeli officials.

"We did not know from the beginning, but we knew, we had intelligence that these meetings were happening," said the Israeli minister, who spoke to BuzzFeed by phone from his Jerusalem office. He said that a "friend in the Gulf" shared intelligence with Israel that the meetings were taking place, and urged Israel to find out more. "I would like to say we knew the content of the talks, but we didn't. What we knew was that the U.S. was choosing not to tell us about them and that was very worrying."

That "friend," one foreign ministry official said, was Saudi Arabia, which along with Israel has most strongly objected to the nuclear deal reached between Iran and the West over the weekend.

Military-industrial-political complex: The Carlyle connection

A revealing documentary about the international world of private equity banking.

The Carlyle Group, one of the largest investment banks in the world, is based in Washington and has accumulated its capital mainly by investments in the defence industry. On their list of employees are people like Lou Gerstner (former chairman of IBM), George Bush Sr., James Baker III, John Major (former British Prime Minister) and Fidel Ramos (former Prime Minister of the Philipines). The Carlyle Group invests in areas that are closely tied to government policy: aero space and defense, telecom, real estate, health care and the banking business. With 16 billion dollar under management they have the reputation of being the best-connected company in the world. Their list of private investors include George Soros, the Saudi Royal Family and the Bin Laden Family. How does the Carlyle Group operate, who are the people behind the Carlyle Group and how much power does Carlyle have? This film explores the fine line between the conflict of interests and a new global way of doing business.

Comment: It's not 'conflict of interest', it's not 'some new way of doing business', it's just 'The American Way'. JFK tried to end it; look how long he lasted.

Secret U.S.-Iran talks set stage for nuke deal

On a warm day in Washington this fall, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu huddled in the White House, each flanked by a handful of top advisers, including Vice President Joe Biden. Just three days earlier, Obama had held an historic phone call with Iran's new President Hassan Rouhani, the leader of a country Israel sees as a threat to its very existence.

In the confines of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Sept. 30, just after the high Jewish holidays, Obama revealed to Netanyahu that his administration had been engaged in secret, high-level diplomatic talks with the mortal enemy of the Jewish state. Netanyahu's immediate public reaction betrayed no surprise, but a day later he launched a full-frontal attack on Iran, delivering a blistering speech at the U.N. General Assembly in which he said the Islamic republic was bent on Israel's destruction and accused Rouhani of being a "wolf in sheep's clothing."

The White House meeting had been scheduled for about an hour, but continued on for 30 more minutes, leaving American and Israeli journalists crowded onto the portico outside the Oval Office to speculate about the discussions underway inside. The two men had and still have an uneasy relationship, and each blames the other for inconclusive results in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Yet In statements after the meeting, both leaders tried to display unity rather than airing their differences on Iran in public.
