Secrecy And Lies: Government Collusion With The GM Biotech Sector In Britain

In 2012, the current British Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary Owen Paterson called concerns over the use of GM foods “complete nonsense” in an outright attack on valid concerns about GMOs (1). Since then, through comments and speeches, he has consistently voiced unqualified support for the GM food industry.

MP Zac Goldsmith is a member of the Conservative Party to which Paterson also belongs and has accused his fellow party member of making “nonsensical” claims and as being a puppet of the industry. He has stated that Paterson has swallowed the industry line hook, line and sinker and fears that big agribusiness is framing the debate for the government in order to secure control over the food chain (2).

Paterson seems to be blissfully unaware of, or is content to ignore, the devastating, deleterious health, environmental, social and agricultural impacts of GMOs as detailed in this article: http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-realities-of-gmo-and-petro-chemical-agriculture-allergies-toxins-new-diseases/5367760
In a recent report by in the Daily Mail newspaper in Britain, it is claimed that Paterson’s support for GMOs is being carried out in partnership with the Agricultural Biotechnology Council (ABC), which is financed by GM companies such as Monsanto, Syngenta and Bayer CropScience (3). The revelations come weeks after it was revealed that a group of scientists behind an official government study backing GM all had links to the industry (4).
Evidence has emerged of meetings and briefings involving ministers and the ABC and its industry backers, despite no such meetings with groups worried about the impact of GM on human health and the countryside.

GeneWatch UK made a Freedom of Information request to find out what was said at the briefings, but Paterson’s department has refused to give details. As a result, GeneWatch UK has lodged a formal complaint with the Information Commissioner in the hope that ministers will be forced to admit how GM companies are driving government policy.

In a press release, GeneWatch Director Dr Helen Wallace says:

“The evidence strongly suggests the Government is colluding with the GM industry to manipulate the media, undermine access to GM-free-fed meat and dairy products and plot the return of GM crops to Britain. The public have a right to know what is going on behind closed doors… Ministers who should be protecting our environment have put Monsanto and Syngenta in the driving seat of policy on GM crops and foods.”

Paterson’s department has refused to provide details of a telephone conference between the department and the ABC on June 10 last year. Ten days later, Paterson made a speech calling for opposition to be dropped and claiming GM crops and food were ‘probably safer’ than the conventional equivalent. We are left to draw our own conclusions.

Paterson’s ministerial department has also refused to release a “message on media suggestions” sent by the ABC to the ministry last April, or details of discussions between Monsanto and the ministry two months before. In addition, the ministry would not provide details of a meeting and emails between former environment minister David Heath and the ABC in January last year.

The GM biotech has already captured politicians and regulatory and policy-making bodies in the US (5). It is also in the process of doing so in India (6). It is clear that Britain faces a similar problem.

Corruption, whether institionalised or individual, has many faces and too often attempts to hide itself behind a veil of secrecy. Left unchallenged, the corruption soon becomes pervasive, accepted and no longer seen for what it actually is. Its outcomes too often become regarded as normal or part of the ‘natural’ course of events.

The GM biotech sector’s corrosive influences on governments must be challenged now, before it’s too late - before we end up eating and being poisoned by its products and before the sector and its backers in the US State Department (7) destroy each and every nation's food sovereignty by weaponising food in order to control entire populations (8).

Be informed and take action:

Steve Quayle & Greg Everson – Nevada Range War – ‘Power Of The Individual’ Against Gov’t Tyranny – Hagmann & Hagmann

By Susan Duclos - Cross posted at Before It's News

 





Doug and Joe Hagmann are joined by Steve Quayle and Greg Everson, where from the very start they discuss the recent Nevada range war, the actions of the federal government and the inaction on the part of the County sheriff and Nevada government and how the power of the individual over government tyranny, was proven in the final analysis.

 

The points made by both Everson and Quayle are spot on, the county sheriff, Gillespie held all the power within his county, yet sat back and did nothing until the very end, after pictures and images of a federal government agency completely out-of-control, were splashed across the alternative media, the internet, social media anf finally even certain news outlets within the MSM.

 

Just a few of those points:


• We saw the power of the individual against a tyrannical example of government overreach


• County sheriffs hold supremacy over state matters


• The BLM only got away with what they did for as long as they did because the county sheriff felt "beholden" to the Feds


• The Feds depended on the lack of involvement from both the county sheriff and the governor.

 

The governor Brian Sandoval does not escape the scathing judgement either, as he also held power to have the federal officials removed before the "people" of the US aka militias from across the country, showed up in large numbers to support Cliven Bundy and his family against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), facing off with them and forcing them to back off and return the cattle they had taken from the Bundy Family, but not before images of  women being thrown to the ground, men being tasered, cattle being rounded up in a manner that left many dead, "First Amendment Area" signs highlighted as if this whole country isn't a First Amendment Area, were spotlighted for the country and the world to see.

 

There is much more in the video below, the above statements are just the tip of the iceberg, but one last point here from what the discussion entails, what we saw was a county sheriff and governor who are now politically and personally compromised.

Ukraine on the Brink

Ukraine on the Brink

by Stephen Lendman

Obama declared war on Ukraine. He dispatched CIA chief John Brennan to Kiev. He arrived with administration instructions.

Obama's proxy putschist stooges were unleashed to wage war on Eastern Ukrainian freedom fighters. The battle for Ukraine's soul escalated.

The country is "on the verge of civil war," said Putin. Prime Minister  Medvedev said the same thing. Putschists launched violence.

"The illegal rulers are trying to restore the order they cynically trampled on when they participated in an armed uprising," Medvedev added.

Their military forces headed east. Tanks, armored vehicles and artillery are on the move. An assault on activist controlled Eastern Ukrainian cities began.

Kramatorsk's airfield was stormed. Gunfire and explosions were heard. Ukrainian warplanes were involved.

Soldiers manning six tanks switched sides. They hoisted Russian flags. A local resident said:

"We found them at a square near the railway station. A group of women surrounded them." 

"We started telling them we were peaceful residents who are just fighting for their rights and that there are no terrorists. They won't shoot us."

"The main armored transport vehicle had a Russian flag on it and they left together with our insurgents towards Slavyansk."

"We are deeply concerned over the military operation launched by the Ukrainian special forces with support of the army. There have already been victims," he said.

"Current events demonstrate persistent unwillingness of Kiev's authorities to organize a dialogue with Ukrainian regions, which is necessary for the country," he added.

On Tuesday, Slavyansk was attacked. According to Donbass people's militia head Sergey Tsyplakov:

"Currently there is a major attack on Slavyansk. Armored personnel vehicles are entering the city."

"There are many troops. The men are getting ready to defend" the city. "There is a lot of military machinery here. But the shooting hasn't started yet."

An uneasy calm awaits a likely storm. Activists still maintain control. Hundreds gathered in central Skavyansk. 

They're not leaving. They want local autonomy. So do growing thousands across Eastern Ukraine. They're putting their bodies on the line for freedom.

One activist said civil war erupted. So far no major hostilities. Just local flareups. It remains to be seen what's next.

Fascists operate lawlessly. Washington runs things. Putschists are proxy stooges. Claiming they acted with "great caution" is polar opposite truth. So is saying they're "prov(ing) law and order."

Behind the scenes manipulation is longstanding US practice.

Sergei Lavrov condemned using military force against Eastern Ukrainian civilians.

"We will seek tranquility and insist on the respect of Kiev leaders for the opinions and demands of the southeast and Ukrainian citizens who live there, as well as on negotiations aimed to de-escalate the situation rather than escalate it with the involvement of law enforcement authorities, moreover, the army, which is clearly prohibited by Ukrainian law," he said.

Putschists have no legitimacy. Growing numbers of Eastern Ukrainians reject them. East/West divisions threaten civil war.

"(U)nity state (authority) stopped working in Ukraine," Lavrov added.

"Its foundations were shattered by a series of political disasters that were shaking the country for years." 

"One of the main reasons of such situation is the absence of a balanced basic law in Ukraine, which adequately takes into account the interests of all ethnic and language groups and ensures the rights and interests of all the citizens of Ukraine."

"It is impossible to consider the situation, when after each Presidential election the Constitution of the country fixing a particular form of government was changed depending on the desire of the victorious political forces, to be normal."

"Therefore, federalization is a way to ensure that each region feels comfortable and secured in his rights, traditions and traditional ways of life."

"All this should be reflected in the reformed Constitution, and the multi-ethnic Ukrainian society should treat it as a reliable foundation of the legal state meant for a long-term perspective." 

"I am convinced that it will be difficult for Ukraine to preserve its unity and to solve urgent tasks aimed at overcoming the current severe crisis."

"Of course, no one can dictate a scheme of organizing a state system to the Ukrainian side. But Ukrainians must start a dialogue and ensure its inclusive and comprehensive character." 

"The idea is that all regions and political forces of Ukraine, without exceptions, should participate in it on an equal basis and have equal rights in solving essential issues."

Media scoundrels twist truth daily. They disgrace themselves in the process. They're presstitutes. They make street whores look respectable by comparison.

On April 15, The New York Times continued its daily Russia bashing. Gore Vidal once called The Times the "Typhoid Mary of American journalism."

He did so for good reason. It headlined "Russia Is Quick to Bend Truth About Ukraine."

It called above quoted Putin and Medvedev comments "bluster and hyperbole." It lied calling their honest assessment "misinformation, exaggerations, conspiracy theories, overheated rhetoric and, occasionally outright lies…"

It claimed "an extraordinary (Kremlin) propaganda campaign." A "new brazenness," it added.

A "24-hour vortex of alarmist proclamations of Western (sponsored) aggression…"

"Sinister claims of rising fascism and breathless accounts of imminent hostilities by the 'illegal' Ukrainian government in Kiev…"

You can't make this stuff up. It bears repeating what earlier articles stressed. All the news Times editors call fit to print isn't fit to read.

Truth is systematically buried. Lies, damn lies and bigger ones substitute. Times editors and management notoriously support lawless US imperialism. 

Their longstanding overall record is deplorable. It's worst of all when America goes to war, plans one or uses proxy stooges. Unquestioning support follows.

A companion April 15 Times article headlined "UN Cites Abuses in Crimea Before Annexation Vote."

A litany of lies followed. A previous article discussed duplicitous human rights misinformation on Ukraine. Not according to The Times.

It reported bald-faced lies as truth. It said Crimea's model democratic voting process was "rigged." 

It falsely claimed harassment, journalist abductions and torture occurred. It ignored independent monitors saying Crimea's process was scrupulously open, free and fair. 

Not a single irregularity took place. Not a sign of wrongdoing. No crimes were committed before, during or after Crimeans voted. Claims otherwise were false.

Twisting truth for power is longstanding Times policy. It's buried. Readers are systematically lied to. Misinformation is featured.

Washington propaganda is worst of all. On March 5, the State Department published misinformation on Russia. It claimed Putin "fiction."

Russia "spins a false narrative to justify its 'illegal' actions in Ukraine," it said. It wrongfully claimed "Russian aggression in the Ukraine."

A litany of lies followed. More on April 13. The State Department headlined "Russian Fiction the Sequel: 10 More False Claims About Ukraine."

It lied claiming "Russia continues to spin a false and dangerous narrative to justify its illegal actions in Ukraine." 

"The Russian propaganda machine continues to promote hate speech and incite violence by creating a false threat in Ukraine that does not exist." 

"We would not be seeing the violence and sad events that we've witnessed this weekend without this relentless stream of disinformation and Russian provocateurs fostering unrest in eastern Ukraine.

More lies, damn lies, and bigger ones followed.

(1) "Russia Claims: Russian agents are not active in Ukraine."

No evidence suggests otherwise. Not according to the State Department. 

It said Kiev putschists arrested "more than a dozen 'suspected' Russian intelligence agents…"

Innocent victims are targeted. Lies substitute for truth.

(2) "Russia Claims: Pro-Russia demonstrations are comprised exclusively of Ukrainian citizens acting of their own volition…"

Again no corroborating evidence refutes this. "This is not the grassroots Ukrainian civic activism of the EuroMaidan movement," said the State Department.

No "grassroots" activism existed. Washington orchestrated Kiev lawlessness. It manipulated events disruptively. 

It funded fascist thugs. It did so to unleash violence. It ousted Ukraine's democratically elected government.

(3) "Russia Claims: Separatist leaders in eastern Ukraine enjoy broad popular support."

The State Department claims a "large majority" of Donetsk region residents reject them.

No evidence suggests it. Growing thousands across Eastern Ukraine reject Kiev putschists. The State Department didn't explain.

(4) "Russia Claims: The situation in eastern Ukraine risks spiraling into civil war."

It's happening. It risks spilling cross-border. It risks a potential East/West confrontation.

Uprisings "would not be happening without Russian disinformation and provocateurs fostering unrest," claims the State Department. 

They "would not be happening if a large Russian military force were not massed on the border, destabilizing the situation through their overtly threatening presence."

No Russian disinformation exists. No provocateurs. No Russian forces massed on Ukraine's border. No threatening presence. State Department Big Lies don't wash.

(5) "Russia Claims: Ukrainians in Donetsk rejected the illegitimate authorities in Kyiv and established the independent 'People's Republic of Donetsk.' "

Not according to the State Department. It ignored mass anti-Kiev opposition. It lied claiming a "small number of separatists" are involved.

For every one active on Donetsk streets and elsewhere across Eastern Ukraine, hundreds, perhaps many thousands, more support them.

(6) "Russia Claims: Russia ordered a 'partial drawdown' of troops from the Ukrainian border."

"No evidence" suggests it, said the State Department. Russian forces are involved in nonthreatening military exercises.

Western monitors observed them. They've had direct contact with Russian commanders. 

They took on site photos. They reported no irregularities. Nothing suggests Moscow threatens Ukraine. US officials lie claiming otherwise.

(7) "Russia Claims: Ethnic Russians in Ukraine are under threat."

The State Department lied claiming no threat exists. Neo-Nazi thugs run key ministries. They hate all opposition elements. They live under threat. Their lives and safety are endangered.

(8) "Russia Claims: Ukraine's new government is led by radical nationalists and fascists."

The State Department twisted truth claiming otherwise. Neo-Nazi thugs prominently display swastikas, Iron Crosses, SS insignia and other fascist symbols.

US officials ignore it. Obama's new friends are thugs. They represent the worst of societal misfits. 

They threaten all Ukrainians. They threaten regional peace. They risk turning Ukraine's crisis into global conflict.

(9) "Russia Claims: Ethnic minorities face persecution in Ukraine from the 'fascist' government in Kyiv."

All Ukrainians are at risk. Fascists tolerate no opposition. Presidential aspirant Oleg Tsarev is Exhibit A. He opposes Kiev putschists.

A previous article discussed him. Neo-Nazi Right Sector Sector thugs attacked him. They brutally beat him. He's hospitalized in critical condition. Washington ignored what happened. Scoundrel media buried the story.

His candidacy stands. He's not pulling out. If he recovers, maybe putschist thugs will kill him. Fascists operate this way. Obama supports them.

(10) "Russia Claims: Russia is not using energy and trade as weapons against Ukraine."

The State Department lied claiming otherwise. Since 2009, Moscow subsidized Ukraine's economy.

It provided unprecedented natural gas discounts. They totaled $17 billion. Plus another $18.4 billion Ukraine incurred as a minimal "take-or-pay fine."

"No other country provided such support except Russia," said Putin. Western ones provided none.

They want Ukraine colonized. Plundering its resources is planned. Exploiting its people. Turning Ukraine into a pro-Western vassal state. Incorporating it into NATO. 

Deploying US nuclear armed missiles on Russia's borders. Threatening regional peace and stability unconscionably. Risking WW III.

Don't expect the State Department to explain. Or neocon infesting Washington. 

Or supportive scoundrel media. War winds head dangerously toward gale force. Risks demanding headlines are buried.

A Final Comment

On April 16, Odessa anti-Maidan activists proclaimed the People's Republic of Odessa. They issued a statement saying:

"From today, Odessa region becomes the People's Republic of Odessa, where the power belongs to the people living in its territory."

City residents were urged to prevent outside traffic from entering except ambulances. Odessa activists joined their counterparts in over a dozen other Eastern Ukrainian cities.

Growing protests demand local autonomy and democratic rights.

More NATO Forces for Eastern Europe

More NATO Forces for Eastern Europe

by Stephen Lendman

US-led NATO threatens world peace. It's a global killing machine. It prioritizes militarism and war. It threatens humanity in the process.

It's escalating East/West tensions. It supports Kiev fascist putschists. It buries truth. It spreads lies about Russia.

On April 16, NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said:

"We have just taken further measures to respond to the crisis in Ukraine."

"We call on Russia to be part of the solution. To stop destabilising Ukraine, pull back its troops from the borders and make clear it doesn't support the violent actions of well armed militias of pro-Russian separatists."

NATO deployed warplanes to Eastern Europe provocatively. US navy vessels patrol Black Sea waters. France plans sending one of its own to join them.

Rasmussen announced stepped up measures. He called doing so "reinforc(ing) our collective defence and demonstrat(ing) the strength of Allied security."

More warplanes are coming. More ships. More troop deployments. Sending them means more "readiness" on land, he said.

Measures announced are being implemented straightaway. "More will follow, if needed, in the weeks and months to come," he added.

Doing so "send(s) a clear message. NATO will protect every Ally and defend against any threat against our fundamental security. That is our firm commitment."

No threats exists. Invented ones substitute. Rasmussen didn't explain. He's a convenient US stooge. He serves at America's behest. He's one of its imperial frontmen.

Stars and Stripes is a Pentagon publication. On April 16, it headlined "NATO to deploy more forces to eastern Europe in response to Ukraine crisis."

It quoted Rasmussen saying "(m)ilitary staff from allied nations will deploy to enhance our preparedness, training and exercises. Our defense plans will be reviewed and reinforced."

General Philip Breedlove ordered increased readiness. He's Washington's European commander/Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR)/NATO Allied Command Operations head.

He wants more US-led NATO warplanes, ships and land forces. He wants them closer to Russia's borders. He does so despite no Moscow threat. Claims otherwise are false.

Commodore Georgiy Alafuzoff formerly was Finland's Defense Forces Intelligence Manager. He's currently EU intelligence military intelligence head.

No Russian involvement in Eastern Ukraine exists, he said. No reported military presence. Moscow had nothing to do with seizing government buildings in Eastern Ukraine cities, he stressed. 

Claims otherwise are false. "In my opinion, it's mostly people who live in the region who are not satisfied with the current state of affairs," he explained.

They're concerned about their own welfare. They risk losing fundamental freedoms. Alafuzoff agrees with what Sergei Lavrov and other Russian officials stress. 

Western propaganda claims otherwise. It drowns out truth. It substitutes lies. On April 16, Itar Tass headlined "Foreign observers carry out 8 inspections in Russia's territory."

They reflect Moscow's military transparency measures. They comply with 2002 Open Skies Treaty provisions. Thirty-four nations are signatories.

They include Russia, America, Canada, Turkey, Ukraine and most other European states. They permit unarmed surveillance overflights. They promote military activity openness.

In March alone, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said foreign inspectors carried out eight Russian territory inspections. 

Seven were near the Ukraine/Russian border. No evidence suggests a massive military buildup. Claims otherwise are false. They're groundless, said Antonov.

"We have mechanisms of transparency agreed in Vienna within the framework of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)," he explained. 

"There is the Open Skies Treaty and the 2011 Vienna Document on Transparency and Confidence-building Measures which provide for certain verification procedures," he said.

"It is nonsense to say that the nuclear West is disarming while the nuclear Russia is building up forces." 

Russia destroyed over 2,000 ground-based ballistic missiles. They included cruise missiles able to hit targets from 500 to 5,500 kilometers away.

More than 3,000 nuclear warheads with a combined 500,000 ton yield were eliminated. So were 825 launchers.

"NATO has 10,000 tanks," said Antonov. "(W)e have only 3,500…"

"NATO has 22,000 armored vehicles compared to Russia's 7,500," he added. Don't figures speak for themselves, he stressed.

They're ignored. They're not reported. Russia bashing takes precedence. Lies substitute for truth.

Putin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Western news consumers are denied real information.

"It's very regrettable but it's so," he said. Even comments by Putin, Lavrov, and other top Russian officials are ignored. A "concrete wall of censorship" blocks them out.

"We never saw anything like this before. We never thought this could happen and that it could happen so openly," said Peskov.

On geopolitical issues, the Washington Post is a de facto CIA publication. Columnist David Ignatius has longstanding close US intelligence ties. 

His commentaries lack credibility. He lies for power. On April 15, he headlined "The Cost of Putin's adventurism in Ukraine."

None whatever exists. Not according to Ignatius. He lied saying he "seiz(ed) Crimea." 

He's "fomenting unrest in eastern Ukraine, perhaps as a prelude to invasion."

"…Russian agents infiltrat(ed) eastern Ukraine, backed by 40,000 troops just across the border," he claimed.

Truth is polar opposite. It bears repeating. Ignatius lies for power. He willfully spreads disinformation. He's stoking conflict.

"(T)he White House sees Putin weighing three options," he said. He calls all of them "bad for the West." Two are fabricated. More on them below.

The other is accurate. Putin supports involving all Ukrainian political voices in a federalized state. He favors Ukrainian nonaligned status.

Option two, said Ignatius, is "annex(ing) eastern Ukraine." Putin forthrightly opposes it. Claims otherwise are false.

Option three is "invasion, using the pretext of civil war in eastern Ukraine," said Ignatius.

Putin plans none. At the same time, he's committed to protecting Russian nationals if endangered. 

Western leaders would do no less for their own. Washington invents threats. It does so to deploy US forces to foreign countries.

Putin responsibly uses his. He prioritizes saving lives. Mass slaughter and destruction follow Pentagon deployments.

Don't expect Ignatius to explain. He claims Putin "prefers the veneer of legitimacy." He shames his US counterpart.

He respects national sovereignty. He supports rule of law principles. His governance is polar opposite Obama's. 

Ignatius claims he prefers "paramilitary covert action, rather than rolling tanks across an international border."

Russia's military strength is a "warning sign that (he'll) keep the threat of force alive until his demands are met," he added.

Hegemons operate this way. Washington is Exhibit A. One country after another is targeted. They're systematically ravaged and destroyed.

Putin prioritizes peace and stability. His policies reflect his pronouncements. Ignatius didn't explain. 

Lies substituted for truth. His columns feature them. He's part of the Putin bashing crowd. He's one of many. 

Outrageous misinformation persists. Readers are cheated. They're grossly misinformed. War of words is vicious. 

Propaganda wars precede hot ones. Conflicts glorify them. They do so in the name of peace. They rage one after another. 

Hegemons give no quarter. Mass slaughter and destruction are standard practice. All US direct and proxy wars turn out this way. 

Ukraine may become the latest example. Victims are blamed for US crimes. Today's yellow journalism makes earlier stuff look tame by comparison.

The so-called "newspaper of record" operates as lead US ministry of information and propaganda. The Washington Post doesn't hide its CIA connection.

Big Lies repeat ad nauseam. Perhaps employment contracts mandate proliferating misinformation, deceit and distortion.

Truth is buried. Ethical standards are ignored. Daily fare reads like bad fiction. Television is worst of all.

Demagoguery, warmongering, Big Lies, censorship, pseudo-journalism, and juiced-up junk food news substitute for vital information viewers most need to know.

May Ukrainians for peace, equity and justice prevail. May they inspire activists globally. May they motivate others to join them. 

May their ranks overflow. May freedom triumph worldwide. May humanity be saved.

IRS Plot To Jail Conservatives Exposed!

By Live Free or Die - Cross posted from Before It's News




The Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted with the IRS scandal as a series of Lois Lerner emails expose a plot to jail conservative groups as shared in the video below from KafkaWinstonWorld. These emails reveal that Lerner had been in contact with Eric Holder’s DOJ in reference to prosecuting conservative organizations according to the watchdog group Judicial Watch.


“These new emails show that the day before she broke the news of the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner was talking to a top Obama Justice Department official about whether the DOJ could prosecute the very same organizations that the IRS had already improperly targeted,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton Wednesday.
Fitton said the IRS emails show the Department of Justice is now implicated and conflicted in the IRS scandal.
“No wonder we had to sue in federal court to get these documents,” he said.
Judicial Watch said a new batch of internal IRS documents show Lerner, who has been referred to the full House of Representatives for a vote on contempt of Congress charges, “communicated with the Department of Justice about whether it was possible to criminally prosecute certain tax-exempt entities.”
