Arkansas Temporarily Bans the Sale and Use of Dicamba Herbicide

0

by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
After hundreds of Arkansas farmers claimed their crops had been harmed by the weed-killer dicamba, which was sprayed on neighboring fields, the Arkansas Plant Board voted June 23, 2017, to impose an unprecedented ban on the herbicide.

David Hundley, who manages grain production for Ozark Mountain Poultry in the town of Bay, said:

“It’s fracturing the agricultural community. You either have to choose to be on the side of using the product, or on the side of being damaged by the product.”

Goodbye Monsanto; Hello Bayer On “Steroids”

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

Oh, how prognosticating words about Monsanto apparently have come true!

And people say there’s nothing to astrology!

Moneywatch published online on June 5, 2018, “As Bayer Monsanto merger closes, a toxic corporate name to be retired” not quite five years after I published the article “GMOs: What Do The Stars Say Astrologically?” regarding Monsanto with how I ended that article:

However, as this writer assesses the GMO issue, Coppolino’s prognostications ought to revitalize all who are working to expose the dangers of GMO farming and foods, plus bring new-found hope and unfailing determination. When certain aspects are written in the stars, who knows what can happen. We just have to keep on, keeping on.

5G AGRICULTURE – FOOD FROM FRANKENSTEIN FARMING

by Julian Rose, The Waking Times:

The director of development at Ericcson, Marcin Sugak, is excited. He has a new toy to sell to agribusiness farmers. This particular toy, he claims, is going to ‘overcome’ all the difficult new challenges facing agriculture today. It will be ‘A revolution’, he declares. According to the Ericcson corporation, with this new toy, farmers will be able to look at their plants and animals from a completely ‘new perspective’.

Just what might this new perspective be?

California Will Get Swamped by Millions of Mosquito-Killing … Mosquitoes

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:
Researchers at the Google-linked science company Verily are in the process of releasing 20 million sterile mosquitoes into the Fresno County, California, area in an attempt to actually stop the disease-carrying menaces from breeding. [1]

The effort is dubbed the “Debug Fresno” project, the goal of which is to greatly reduce the number of invasive Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in the area. The Zika-carrying insects first arrived in California’s Central Valley in 2013. The mosquitoes also have the ability to spread dengue fever and chikungunya viruses. Officials say the bugs adapted rapidly to the area’s residential neighborhoods. [2]

Steve Mulligan, district manager for the region’s Consolidated Mosquito Abatement District (CMAD), explained:

After Reading This Article About the Danger of GMOs, You Will Probably Never Want to Eat GM Food Again

0

from Humans Are Free:

Every single day, most Americans eagerly gobble down foods that contain ingredients that have been genetically-modified without ever considering the consequences.

Most of us simply assume that the federal government would never allow us to eat GMOs if they were not safe.

Unfortunately, it appears that the federal government has completely failed us. The material that I am about to share with you is deeply disturbing, and after reading this article there is a very good chance that you will never want to eat genetically-modified food ever again.

THE GMO SCRAPBOOK: SYRIA, IRAQ, AND SEED BANKS

0

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Here’s a bit of intriguing dot-connecting about GMOS to put in your GMO scrapbook:

One of the very interesting things about a “community-driven” blogsite such as this is that I am constantly amazed at people’s ability to connect dots, and that’s the case today with some very interesting dots connected by Mr. M.A., who took the time to share his labors, and whose dot-connecting I hope to do some justice to today.

First, a little context. Many readers here who have been following my various interviews and blogs over the years are probably already aware that I view the US “intervention” as being an operation with a multitude of objectives, among them obvious ones like “securing the oil supply”(Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria) to much less obvious ones such as “securing the drug supply”(Afghanistan) to securing access to potential ancient archaeological sites, ancient knowledge and its potential awareness of technologies and weapons of mass destruction (Iraq, Syria), and so on. Another way of putting that is that the so-called intelligence briefing about Saddam Hussein developing weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be a complete fabrication (that is, if one were only looking for a-bombs and chemical and biological weapons) may not have been so, if one considers the angle of potential “ancient technology.”

Which brings us to Mr. M.A.’s high octane speculation, which I am going to try to do my best to summarize, for there may be yet another motivation in addition to the above: seeds, and food, and more specifically, non-GMO seeds.

He begins by pointing out this old article from Zero Hedge, and specifically, one sentence within it:

The Arctic Doomsday Seed-Vault Is Getting Some Major Upgrades

Toward the end of this article, Mr. M.A. drew attention to this statement:

According to the Norwegian government, the seed vault has been used one time.Back in 2015, ICARDA International Research Center, which operated a location out of Aleppo, Syria, was blown up. The organization requested seeds from its deposits at Svalbard Global Seed Vault, which demonstrates the importance of the backup vault in the Arctic. (Emphasis added)

In other words, Syria had a natural seeds vault in Aleppo (see this article, says Mr. M.A.: In the midst of war, this Syrian seed bank is still going) which, gee whiz, turned out to be a hotbed of terrorist activity and a constant thorn in the government of Mr. Assad, until Mr. Putin decided to intervene and stop the Turkish-Israeli-Saudi-US-sponsored nonsense.

Funny how that worked out.

But wait, there’s more: for in the second article linked above, one reads this:

The destruction of Iraq’s seed bank in Abu Ghraib in 2003, and the subsequent domination of Iraqi agricultural reconstruction by U.S. agribusiness interests, provides a cautionary tale. Here, destruction and reconstruction occurred over a decade rather than a millennium, transforming rural economies. When war ravages a country, the continuity of its agricultural systems is also destroyed. Farmers might keep their lives but lose land and seed stocks carefully stewarded for generations because they lack the resources for reconstruction. (Emphasis added)

Abu Ghraib… a seed vault! You don’t say! Was this the real reason that the “powers that be” were in such a snit to shut down media attention on American crimes against Iraqi prisoners there?

But wait, there’s yet more: in that same second article, one reads that, lo and behold, there was yet another seed bank in – you guessed it – Kabul, Afghanistan (where presumably I.G. Farbensanto may have been concerned about the non-GMO opium poppy seeds):

ICARDA’s effort is itself a result of previous conflicts. In 2002, the American war in Afghanistan destroyed the national seed bank in Kabul, and looters completed the destruction unfinished by combat. ICARDA’s collection holds seeds salvaged from Iraq’s national seed bank in Abu Ghraib. These are among the collections duplicated in Svalbard. (Emphasis added)

And there’s this, too, which conjures images of Mr. Putin, who, let it be noted, hails from St. Peterburg (the former Leningrad); the staff of the Syrian seed bank stayed on site to maintain it at the risk of their lives, for a very simple reason:

Employees without the means to flee crisis have preserved the facility, at considerable risk to themselves. In this, they are like the staff of the Vavilov Research Institute in Russia who would rather starve during the Siege of Leningrad than consume or surrender the seeds they guarded.

DARPA developing “genetic doomsday” weapon to exterminate populations on demand… GMOs to become WMDs

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

The U.S. military agency known as DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is investing $100 million into so-called “genetic extinction technologies” that could be deployed to exterminate targeted human populations.

Emails acquired under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), “suggest that the US’s secretive Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) has become the world’s largest funder of “gene drive” research,” reports The Guardian. “The use of genetic extinction technologies in bioweapons is the stuff of nightmares…” The Guardian reports.

The disclosure of this genetic extinction technology comes on the heels of Natural News blowing the whistle on a global eugenics program to target and exterminate people of African descent as part of an ongoing global depopulation agenda. In a one-hour video lecture published a few weeks ago, I detail the six vectors through which the weaponization of science and medicine is being deployed right now to exterminate blacks. See “The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks” for full details (full lecture video below).

Crispr gene editing technology becomes weaponized

The genetic doomsday weapon system now being developed by DARPA is based on the Crispr-Cas9 gene editing technique which allows simple, low-cost laboratories to achieve previously impossible genetic editing goals in almost any organism… including humans. “These might, for example, distort the sex-ratio of mosquitoes to effectively wipe out malarial populations,” explains The Guardian. But they could also be used to wipe out targeted genetic sub-species of humans, too.

“The dual use nature of altering and eradicating entire populations is as much a threat to peace and food security as it is a threat to ecosystems,” explained Jim Thomas, co-director of the ETC group, as reported by The Guardian. “Militarisation of gene drive funding may even contravene the Enmod convention against hostile uses of environmental modification technologies.”

Because much of the funding for modern-day science comes from military and government, scientists are finding themselves forced to work on “weaponization” programs or face a loss of funding. Via The Guardian:

Todd Kuiken, who has worked with the GBIRd programme, which receives $6.4m from Darpa, said that the US military’s centrality to gene tech funding meant that “researchers who depend on grants for their research may reorient their projects to fit the narrow aims of these military agencies”.

The weaponization of gene drive technology — turning genetics into a doomsday weapon — is widely known to be capable of spreading through a population and causing deliberate extinction. “Think of it as a way to supercharge evolution, forcing a genetic modification to spread through an entire population in just a few generations,” reports WIRED. The technology is so potentially devastating that former national intelligence director James Clapper classified gene drive technology as one of many “weapons of mass destruction and proliferation,” according to WIRED, which also said:

Taking into account things like how often Crispr screws up and the likelihood of protective mutations arising, their work shows how gene drives could be ruthlessly aggressive.

Natural News warned the world about weaponized GMOs five years ago

As usual, Natural News was years ahead of the lagging scientific community in sounding the alarm over the weaponization of genetic engineering technology. In a 2012 article entitled, “S.O.S. alert: Help STOP Out-of-control Science from destroying us all,” I wrote about weaponized GMOs as a danger to human civilization:

Humanity has reached a tipping point of developing technology so profound that it can destroy the human race; yet this rise of “science” has in no way been matched by a rise in consciousness or ethics. Today, science operates with total disregard for the future of life on Earth, and it scoffs at the idea of balancing scientific “progress” with caution, ethics or reasonable safeguards. Unbridled experiments like GMOs have unleashed self-replicating genetic pollution that now threatens the integrity of food crops around the world, potentially threatening the global food supply.

A CIA / BEZOS TRIUMPH: WHOLE FOODS BACKS OFF MANDATORY GMO LABELING

from The Daily Sheeple:

Whole Foods is pulling on the reins when it comes to mandatory GMO labeling in their stores. The Austin, Texas-based company announced the mandatory initiative in 2013, and a letter sent to suppliers in mid-May by A.C. Gallo, chief operations officer, said Whole Foods’ plans are on hold.

The natural food retailer, which was acquired by Amazon last August, said it’s pausing the plan in response to supplier concerns over the ruling as the USDA is currently accepting comments on what is likely to be a government-enforced GMO labeling law.

Glyphosate Worse than We Could Imagine. “It’s Everywhere”

by F. William Engdahl, Global Research:

As new studies continue to point to a direct link between the widely-used glyphosate herbicide and various forms of cancer, the agribusiness lobby fights ferociously to ignore or discredit evidence of human and other damage. A second US court jury case just ruled that Monsanto, now a part of the German Bayer AG, must pay $ 81 million in damages to plaintiff Edwin Hardeman who contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. The ruling and a line-up of another 11,000 pending cases in US courts going after the effects of glyphosate, have hit Bayer AG hard with the company announcing several thousand layoffs as its stock price plunges.

In a trial in San Francisco the jury was unanimous in their verdict that Monsanto Roundup weed-killer, based on glyphosate, had been responsible for Hardeman’s cancer. His attorneys stated,

“It is clear from Monsanto’s actions that it does not care whether Roundup causes cancer, focusing instead on manipulating public opinion and undermining anyone who raises genuine and legitimate concerns about Roundup.” 

Documents Reveal How Monsanto & The EPA Bury Cancer Research

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Multiple documents have emerged over the years showing the corruption that plagues Monsanto. In this case, they colluded with the EPA to stifle cancer research and any connections to their product.
  • Reflect On:With so many examples and info available on the concerns that Roundup herbicide brings to the table, why is the US and Canada in the small majority of countries that accept these products and deem them safe, despite evidence showing the opposite?
