Well, no wonder my family and I were so sick most of the time we lived in Hawaii considering Monsanto’s GMO farms, chemicals, and GMO food. What is even more surprising is that in all the time that I lived on the Big Island, I heard not one word about any of this. Time to change that; please pass this documentary on and let as many people know as you can.
Stop Monsanto From Poisoning Hawai’i: Genetic Engineering Chemical Warfare
For over 20 years, Hawai’i has been the global center for the open-field testing of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s), including pharmaceutical crops. Over 5,000 experimental tests have been conducted by Monsanto, Dow, Dupont/Pioneer, Syngenta and BASF that spray chemicals on an almost daily basis on our most valuable lands. They are supported by tax-breaks, and beneficial relationships with landowners, regulators and politicians. We estimate GMO companies own or lease 40,000 — 60,000 acres that are sprayed with over 70 different chemicals. (more…)
On Friday, 11.11.2011, Veteran’s Day, the Ron Paul presidential campaign is holding a Veteran’s Day MoneyBomb. In the past (and currently), Ron Paul has raised twice as much money as all the other GOP candidates combined and more than Obama from service members AND he IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT WILL ACTUALLY KEEP HIS WORD AND BRING OUR FAMILY MEMBERS HOME! Do you really think any of the GOP war-mongers, squishy (in-the-pocket-of-large-corporations) RINOs, or even America-desiccating Obama are going to allow your son, daughter, father, brother, sister, father, mother, aunt or uncle to stop rotting in the sands of the Middle East for the Military-Industrial Complex’s agenda?
If you believe in LIBERTY, ACCOUNTABILITY and THE PROPER USE OF OUR MILITARY, vote with your wallet for the only candidate that actually supports our troops and not multi-national corporations. Donate to RonPaul2012.com.
Watch the video all the way through to understand what is at stake. (more…)

The former United States ambassador to France suggested “moving to retaliation” against France and the European Union (EU) in late 2007 to fight a French ban on Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) corn and changes in European policy toward biotech crops, according to a cable released by WikiLeaks on Sunday.
Former Ambassador Craig Stapleton was concerned about France’s decision to suspend cultivation of Monsanto’s MON-810 corn and warned that a new French environmental review standard could spread anti-biotech policy across the EU.
“Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits,” Stapleton wrote to diplomatic colleagues.
President George W. Bush appointed Stapleton as ambassador to France in 2005, and in 2009, Stapleton left the office and became an owner of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. Bush and Stapleton co-owned the Texas Rangers during the 1990s.
Monsanto is based in St. Louis.
The EU’s 1998 approval of MON-810 corn has since expired. In recent years, several European countries joined France in banning MON-810 and similar biotech crops while the products are reassessed in light of research showing they could harm the environment and human health.
(NaturalNews) The manufacturers of the most prevalent sweetener in the world have a secret, and it`s not a sweet one. Aspartame, an artificial sweetener found in thousands of products worldwide, has been found to be created using genetically modified (GM) bacteria. What`s even more shocking is how long this information has been known. A 1999 article by The Independent was the first to expose the abominable process in which aspartame was created. Ironically, the discovery was made around the same time as rich leaders around the globe met at the G8 Summit to discuss the safety of GM foods.
The 1999 investigation found that Monsanto, the largest biotech corporation in the world, often used GM bacteria to produce aspartamein their US production plants. The end result is a fusion between two of the largest health hazards to ever hit the food industry —artificial sweeteners and an array of genetically altered organisms. Both have led to large-scale debate, with aspartame being the subject of multiple congressional hearings and scientific criticism. Scientists and health advocates are not the only ones to speak out against aspartame, however. The FDA received a flurry of complaints from consumers using NutraSweet, a product containing aspartame. Since 1992,the FDA has stopped documenting reports on the subject.
(Editor’s Note: Monster readers know that I have been inside the labyrinth for a little over two months now. The size and scope of the web that surrounds us grows each day that I read reports from the World Bank, IMF, FAO, Treasury Department, State Department, etc., and dig through legislation that is decades old. I have come to the conclusion that breaking it down into smaller pieces may allow readers to grasp more without becoming totally overwhelmed. American Patriots are going to take the Congress and White House back from the globalists, but what then? We need to educate ourselves on how wide the web reaches, and to do that, you need to be looking at the scope on an international level, and at the United Nations. The battle starts with our own Federal Reserve and branches out from there. Abolishing the Federal Reserve cuts the head off the beast that is draining our wealth and enriching America’s true enemies.)
This is a very important French documentary about Monsanto that I urge you to watch in it’s entirety as you will be getting base knowledge for upcoming posts on Monsanto, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The documentary is from 3.11.2008 and has a run-time of not quite 2 hours. Please keep in mind that in 2004, Iraq Patent Law made it illegal for farmers to save seeds, yet in 2005, the FAO stated that the country’s seed industry had collapsed and it wasn’t able to meet farmers’ needs. Why does Iraq matter? The massive transnational agriculture corporations are moving on these two countries and only GMOs are being supplied for crops as they are ‘high-quality’ and ‘high yield’. Yet, the farmers aren’t allowed to retain seed; buying new each year, and there is emerging evidence that the GMOs are harmful to the environment and humans. The corporations already control you through debt; now they get to control the food supply. Add Codex Alimentarius and Agenda 21; our gooses are cooked…
I have never seen a situation where one company could have such overwhelming influence at the highest levels of regulatory decision making as the example of Monsanto with it’s GM food policy and the government. – Jeremy Rivkin, Pres. of the Foundation For Economic Trends
