We’ve Been Had……AGAIN! Monsanto Protection Act is now a LAW
(JOHNNY ENGLISH for FEDERALJACK) Congratulations America, we have been fooled yet again. The Monsanto Protection Act was passed by the House of Representatives, hidden inside the Agricultural Appropriations Bill HR 993, last week. It also passed through the Senate this week and was signed into law by President Obama under the cover of night. It seems our President loves signing laws in the middle of the night while we sleep and dream of a better life for our children and grandchildren. Mr. Obama must have forgot the speech during his first campaign in 2007, where he clearly states that Americans have the right to know what is in their food (VIDEO). Apparently we do not, as evidenced by the defeat of Prop 37 in California this past November and continued support of companies like Monsanto by the current administration.
Let us briefly cover what the Monsanto Protection Act is. This law strips the Federal Courts’ ability to stop the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seeds, despite the health risks or consumer health concerns. A petition by Food Democracy Now said this about the bill when introduced into HR 993:
“If approved, the Monsanto Protection Act would force the USDA to allow continued planting of any GMO crop under court review, essentially giving backdoor approval for any new genetically engineered crops that could be potentially harmful to human health or the environment.”
What this means is, Monsanto is protected from litigation. Even if their GMO seeds are a known cause of disease and pose a risk to our health. I believe that has been proven already by the University of Caen in France, when they completed a 2 year test last year feeding GMO corn and soy to mice over their complete life cycle. The results were horrendous at best.
More than 250,000 Americans signed a letter urging President Obama to use his Executive Authority and veto this bill. Once again, our President has ignored the wants and needs of the people. Instead, under cover of night, he happily signed the bill into law guaranteeing disease and poor health to all that consume GMO foods. How were they able to sneak this by the general public? I’ll tell you how. Bait and switch. What stories have dominated the press recently? Which one of the “big 3 topics” has been flaunted before us on every news network? Let us take a look.
Gay rights. Along with religion and racism, gay rights issues have been used to divide this country for years. There are many other distractions, but these 3 are usually at the head of the table when it comes to tearing America apart at the seams. This week the Supreme Court is due to rule on gay marriage. Every news channel, every magazine and every radio show has covered this story. I find the timing very odd. Actually, I expected something to slip by, just not so blatantly. There are special avatars to use on social networks, and I am sure there is a ribbon you can wear somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a commentary on gay rights. And I have the opinion that we all deserve certain rights as Americans, actually, as HUMANS. However, I believe it has been used as a distraction in this case. Waved before our eyes like a magician waves his hand over a hat, distracting the audience while his other hand pulls off the “trick”. If a huge news story arises in the media, whether it be entertainment or otherwise, you can bet the government is stealing more of our rights away. Do the research. Look back in history at all the major headlines. Then match that up with an agenda sponsored by the government.
The entry into, and subsequent failure of our war in Vietnam was covered up by several events. The Gulf of Tonkin incident (that never happened), assassinations of JFK (to enter the conflict), MLK and Bobby Kennedy. Jane Fonda’s horrible photo op, race riots, hippie movement, and the list goes on. This is just one example. There are many more since. Now we have pro sports, fake reality TV and video games to add to the growing list of distractions. It’s no wonder we cannot gain ground in this fight for our freedom. It’s no wonder the elite grow stronger and we grow weaker. We must stand up now, or be slaves forever. WAKE UP!!!!
