foodpoliceNot what the American people ordered – HR 2749, martial law and the enslavement of their farmers

By The Writers’ Collective

Source: Food Freedom

HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways.  While the other “food safety” bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared.  It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part – martial law.

When it was a draft, it was Waxman’s bill.  But once given a number, it became Dingel’s who already had a “food safety” bill, HR 759.  So Waxman got none and Dingel got two.  (Was this because Waxman, being Jewish, was a hideous choice to introduce a bill with Codex in it – designed by the Nazi pharmaceutical companies that funded Hitler, provided the gas for the gas chambers, experimented on prisoners with vaccines – and is expected to kill millions?) 

* HR 2749 would give FDA the power to order a quarantine of a geographic area, including “prohibiting or restricting the movement of food or of any vehicle being used or that has been used to transport or hold such food within the geographic area.”  

[This – “that has been used to transport or hold such food” – would mean all cars that have ever brought groceries home or any pickup someone has eaten take-out in, so this means ALL TRANSPORTATION can be shut down under this.  This is using food as a cover for martial law.]  

Under this provision, farmers markets and local food sources could be shut down, even if they are not the source of the contamination.  The agency can halt all movement of all food in a geographic area.  

[This is also a means of total control over the population under the cover of food, and at any time.] See this DailyKos entry.

The bill is unusual, too, because slow as it was to appear. The little bugger of bill has made up for it since.  It got a number on June 10, went to committee on June 17, passed instantly, and is headed for a vote on the floor of the House.   

The first Patriot Act was passed using fear of terrorism. This Patriot Act is more coy, hiding under a cloak of “food safety” and but also using fear – fear of food contamination.  Evidently, Americans are supposed to be so frightened by the slightest possibility of a terrorist or of E-coli, they would trade away all their precious, hard fought freedoms for the promise of safety.  Or at least, that is what the trade-off has become.  “Terrorism” and “contamination” are great bugaboos used to open doors to an end to the US Constitution.  That is exactly what we are left with after those who wrote HR 2749 are done.  

Who did write these bills?  It seems Monsanto had not only a hand, but a “defining” influence.

This redefining of reality is what seems to be underlying all the loss of freedom.  Normal and free are disappearing into the maw of corporate definitions of reality. See this Yup Farming piece. 

So, we begin with contaminated food from filthy corporate processors and concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).  And what do we end up with after that reality is ground up by corporate legal hands?  Changes in the definition of risk so that natural things are treated as dangerous and toxic things are untouched, such that: 

  • Healthy, normal farms are taken over by government as though they were run by criminals and contaminated corporate slaughterhouses are untouched;
  • The necessary freedom of individuals to live and grow food and be left alone are somehow suddenly destroyed, though they were never the source of any food contamination issue; and such that
  • The profit and control and power of corporations which were absolutely the source of the increasingly terrible food, is somehow suddenly vastly increased.  

Thanks to corporate control over reality, our wanting to clean up corporate processors and feedlots and CAFOS and end up with farmers’ markets and local farms and organic food has become the industrialization and potential destruction of every healthy part of the food system and the triumph of the most contaminated and toxic part.  And in the non-bargain, we lost all freedoms and they took all control.  And “all” is not a hyperbole here, for one need only look at another provision of HR 2749 to feel how insane, how distant from all we ever wanted. 

* HR 2749 would empower FDA to regulate how crops are raised and harvested.  It puts the federal government right on the farm, dictating to our farmers.  

[What is missing in pointing out this astounding control, is that it opens the door to CODEX and WTO “good farming practices” will include the elimination of organic farming by eliminating manure, mandating GMO animal feed, imposing animal drugs, and ordering applications of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides.  Farmers, thus, will be locked not only into the industrialization of once normal and organic farms but into the forced purchase of industry’s products.  They will be slaves on the land, doing the work they are ordered to do – against their own best wisdom – and paying out to industry against their will.  There will be no way to be frugal, to grow one’s own grain to feed the animals, to raise healthy animals without GMO grains or drugs, to work with nature at all.  Grassfed cattle and poultry and hogs will be finished.  So, it needs to be made clear where control will take us.  And weren’t these the “rumors on the internet” that were dismissed but are clearly the case?]  See this DailyKos entry.

When we wanted not to get E-coli in processed meat, did we intend to put our farmers into corporate servitude?  Did we plan to have our own lives straight-jacketed by a million new controls over our own gardens, our own desire to grow food, our own plans to start small businesses, our own dreams to have a small piece of land and farm ourselves?  Who has the audacity to take our needs and grotesquely bastardize them in these ways, while giving the destruction and totalitarian control the sham name of “food safety”?   

We wanted good food.  We never wanted to trap our farmers into an industrial prison on their own land, afraid moment to moment of not fulfilling some monstrous set of instructions that never end – rules the farmers loathe, rules that have not only nothing to do with real farming but which are antithetical to it.  Why have we ended up with HR 2749, an intense corporate nightmare around the most central and necessary aspects of a free country and of free human beings – farming and food?

USDA wiretap webAmerican farming needs to be relieved of the burdens it has been under, not finished off by its corporate competition.  It needs freedom to flourish again.  Obviously – and Congress people who would think to vote for such absurdities, take note – the imposition of surveillance, monitoring, warrantless entry, taking of all records, licensing, fees, Codex and NAIS, in addition to massive penalties and prison terms (all without judicial review over even appropriateness and validity), are not how one thanks American farmers for holding together the only working part of our food system.  See Literal Enslavement by Linn Cohen-Cole.

HR 2749 is the most vicious and insane bill one could imagine.  Who treats our farmers in this way?  Who believes that such police measures can provide for the rebirth of farming and the return of healthy food?  Who wrote this bill that trashes the freedom of all our lives?  HR 2749 was not what we ordered and it should be sent back the bowels of hell it came from.  

HR 2749 is both insane and cruel.  And the deceptiveness of hiding a Patriot Act in it and the brutal rush to slip it through Congress are ANTI-democratic.  

Go here to tell Congress, “No.”

    Greetings in Christ Barbara.

    I am not here to haggle, but am about my Father’s business. However, I would like to point out to you and your readers; if you search this out you will find Mad cow disease along with the elk, deer and moose (same diseases) have been proven to be caused by supplemental food plots of rape. Rape I am sure you are aware was first brought into Canada for diesel fuel for tankers and aircraft. It is “NOT” for huMAN consumption! They have done research on people with alzheimers and claim the same small perforations in the brain are identical to those found in MAD COW DISEASE. This is what Canola oil is made from although they will try and tell you it is not the same rape I assure you it is! It is in just about everything, as is soy and aspartame which is the best known ant killer there is… I hope this is helpful; I hope my website is more helpful; as I encourage all to watch the movie 2012 when it comes out as it is prophecy fulfilled. I have the clips on my site…. OPlease I ask all who seek the lord and His truth to please stop by….
    Lord bless, Mike

  4. “truth,”

    Either cite your independent research on the statistical information regarding the actual cases of anthrax and mad cow disease originating on a farm and getting into the food supply from American ranches or go away.

    Corporate shills are not welcome here. The facts belie your true intentions, and that is to diffuse and obfuscate. In plain language, go away. You present no concrete facts, no evidence to support your claims, and use a rather tired logical fallacy.

  5. truth says:

    You people do not know the real truth about this, you have bought into a paranoid fantasy. This is to prevent the spread of “mad cow” “hoof and mouth” anthrax and other VERY real problems that are KNOWN to spread very easily and fast through modern agriculture practices. all this extremism only shows how gullible you really are. Take the tinfoil out of your hat and at least try to be normal PLEASE.

  6. Good information. I wouldn’t link to anything from the Daily Kos though. It’s a big propaganda group for the NWO

  7. Linda Rivera says:

    I am always saddened by Jew-hater comments on different sites: Nicolae: vicious LIES and blood libels against Jews caused Jews to be murdered many times by the thousands. Phony books and documents were also utilized. Michael K accuses Jews of greed. Olga Gill complains of a Zionist government in Israel – incredible! Israel’s government is constantly pressured by the US/EU/UN to surrender half of her God given Holy Land and half of Holy Jerusalem to PA/PLO terrorist organization.

    The US/EU/UN intensely pressure for a Muslim TERROR State in Israel for the most genocidal society ever known to man. A poll taken after eight Jewish teenage yeshiva students were murdered, found that “84 percent of Palestinians support the terror attack killing eight young students in a Jerusalem yeshiva on March 6, 2008” (Poll by Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, The New York Times, March 19, 2008).

    The cruel ethnic cleansing of 10,000 Gaza Jews violated Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, broke Israel’s Basic Human Rights Law and Clause 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    US/EU/UN ruthless ideology that demands the vicious religious cleansing of Jewish innocents for not being Muslim MUST stop! The 1976 International Convention for Civil and Political Rights, prohibits all forms of discrimination against people on the basis of religion and nationality.

    Every concession. EVERY Israeli Land surrender results in vastly increased Islamic terror and war! The murderous peace process: LAND For WAR! As a result of Israeli land surrenders, every Israeli is under missile threat from either Hizbullah or Hamas, or both.

    Demanding a Muslim terror state reducing tiny Israel at mid-section to 9 miles wide INDEFENSIBLE, Auschwitz borders is wickedly seeking a Second Holocaust!

  8. Linda Rivera says:

    Thank you for the info. If only this info could be published widely in our country. Hundreds of thousands-millions need to protest in the streets against this crime against farmers and ALL Americans. Massive protests would take place if only the people knew. We are already struggling with significant health problems/degenerative diseases because of deadly fluoride added to our water, pesticides, soy in our food, GM food, etc.

  9. esbee says:

    This bill goes hand in hand with another nasty piece of coporate business called NAIS.The USDA program that will usurp property rights is called NAIS (National animal Identification System)! It was developed to benefit and improve marketability of factory farms and corporate agriculture. But while factory farms and big ag gets a free ride, the ones who will be hurt most by NAIS are the small producers who raise even one farm animal whether for a pet, their own consumption or to sell locally.

    NAIS plans are to identify, microchip and track every animal raised by those who are NOT factory farms, horse owners included. These people, regardless if it is a pet pot belly pig in suburbia, a parakeet on the 20th floor in downtown Houston, the pony in the backyard or granny’s few egg hens, will have to register their premises (giving up property rights) pay to microchip every last animal and then file birth, death and movement reports on those animals. And it will cost them a bundle.

    If animal disease is even suspected, all animals in a 6 mile radius can be depopulated. Even though most food recalls are made because of what happens AFTER the cow or chicken left the farm? AFTER it was killed? AFTER IMPROPER HANDLING in the factory or food processing? NAIS traces that animal all the way back to where it was born and punishes the one who bred and fed him.

    Just remember folks, Jesus was Jewish!!

  11. do some deep digging here… you will see who is really behind all the world’s misery directly under satan.

  12. Sharlyn says:

    I have been looking into NAIS for the better part of three years. This program will do nothing for food safety. The USDA itself says that NAIS is not about food safety; rather it is about disease traceback. I’m sorry, but if a disease breaks out and is traced back to its origin within 48 hours, is it not still an outbreak?! Let’s use some common sense here. NAIS is not about food safety. It is about control of the food supply, monopolization of agriculture, and will prevent the People from providing their own homegrown and HEALTHY food. Say NO to NAIS and ask your Congressman to vote NO on HR 2749 along with any other similar pieces of legislation.

  13. Olga,

    A voice of reason in an unreasonable world. Yes, we must not confuse the people with the government installed to enslave them by the few with the most wealth and power. Jew, Christian, Muslim, White, Black, Brown, it doesn’t matter. If you are not the privileged few, you are expendable.

  14. Fluffy says:

    As Jim Morrison once sang..”They’ve got the guns but we’ve got the numbers.”

    The only way the despots can roll us is if too many of you willingly put up your hands and surrender. Peaceful civil disobedience, don’t comply with their rules. As Nancy Reagan would say “Just say ‘no'”. Plant MORE food. Feed your neighbors.

    What has anyone done about any and all of this? Nothing. Nothing at all. Not one damn thing.


    Dear m:

    I beg to differ. I just sent off a letter to my congressman strongly expressing outrage that HR 2749 might become law. That letter also stated that I write columns for a daily newspaper here in his district, and that I would be delighted to report in a column about HR 2749 that he not only responded promptly to my letter but also that his response was one in favor of citizens, especially farmers and gardners, and not one favoring violating the Bill of Rights to empower big corporate agriculture.

    By the way, m, what have you done?

    If the economy crashes and the dollar fails, how are the people to pay their property taxes? We own our little piece’o heaven outright, but it won’t matter if we can’t pay the taxes. Are they prepared to take gold, or silver, or other valuables in lieu of (potentially obsolete) “cash”? No one at the town, county or state level has an answer. If not, there will not be a single property owner left in America, which is apparently right where our New World Corporate Rulers want us.

    Seems to me that the Constitution being the supreme law of the land cannot be legally suspended…if that were so, then it would have been done away with a very long time ago.

    Congress may pass any unconstitutional law (in total violation of its oath of oriface) it likes, and the presidents’ executive orders may contradict the supreme law of the land…but it all comes down to enforcement.

    Are you willing or not to accept the illegality of what they do or are you willing to challenge them by all means necessary?

    We are not without choices, but without the will and commitment to do what we know to be right we are complicit.

  28. OLGA GILL says:

    Let us not confuse the Zionist regime with the Jewish People anymore than we would confuse the American conglomerates with the American people. There are MANY voices IN and out of Israel that condemn their Zionist government and their American partners. The talking heads never report it.
    Israelis, Palestinians, Arabs, Americans, the British, Africans and Asians are ALL in the cross-hairs of the elites, and are ALL being betrayed by their representatives and the lying media, with very few exceptions, via new “Laws” enacted for their so-called protection and safety.
    Only a peaceful yet forceful universal NO! will have any effect. They are already preparing for Martial Law, through bills such as this, in order to prohibit any form of civil disobedience. We MUST begin a nationwide grass roots movement, not controlled by the media, through clear and simple introduction to the Peoples of the world of what is actually happening, while we still have the internet. Keep on talking to others, while you still can, before the endangered internet is no more. If that fails, word of mouth will not fail. Unless, of course, criticism of the government becomes yet another “crime.”

  29. darwin says:

    It’s all part of a EUGENICS program which started back around 1974.
    Mainly Mr. Henry Kissinger’s brainchild (National Secret Security Memorandum 200), role players included Bush Sr.(former U.N. Ambassador, Chief of US Liason Office to China, Director of CIA), Dick Cheney (Deputy Assistant to President Nixon from 1974–1975), Donald Rumsfield (Assistant to President Nixon, Ambassador to NATO, White House Chief of Staff, and the Secretary of Defense), just to name a few.
    With a little research anyone can piece together what is happening…and it’s been happening for a long time. Have you ever look up into the sky and noticed the unmarked white jets flying back and forth leaving long white trails?? These are not CONTRAILS left by normal jets, these are CHEMTRAILS. These CHEMTRAILS being sprayed over your heads are a part of the EUGENICS plan, the plan to depopulate the Earth to a safe number to sustain the HUMAN SPECIES.
    Do the research and you will see………..

  30. TS Gordon says:

    Up to that time when Bush strolled across the Senate floor and pronounced Osama “guilty of 9/11” I acted within the laws and conventions of the USA. But, tody, there is no appearance of the rule of law. Those who have served to undermine the US Constitution were not flown to the front of the battlefield to be met with hugs and bouquets of roses. Those who sit in their posh $M. homes in Southampton and Boca Raton have yet to be charged with Grand Larceny for their recent banking fraud, and somehow we have detached ourselves from any sense of reason regarding the critical nature of home grown foods and medicinals.

    It’s time to change the rules.

  31. Michael K. says:

    Dear Farm Wars,

    Thank you for this informative piece. I have my own small farm, and raise a variety of livestock. Obviously, I would come under intense pressure if this bill became law. But let me tell you with with complete assurance that these insane assholes will never succeed. The congress has become irrelevant as they are a mere rubber stamp for Jew-British corporate greed at this point. If it is not completely obvious, the media does not reflect real life either.

    However, there is not sufficient reason to believe that the actual people of this country are passive in their acceptance of this monstrous diabolical scheme. TV and the media do not report the news, but work to generate opinion. So outside of the endangered internet, there is only vox populi. But do not fall for their propaganda: they do not have sufficient resources to achieve martial law. All they are doing is exposing themselves as traitors, and giving us all the rope we need to hang them.

    There is a fight coming. Writing to your congressman is only useful for determining whether he is a traitor, but not for changing the final outcome of the vote. This is warning to you to prepare to fight for your lives and freedom, the time is fast approaching. Either you will fight for America, or it will surely be taken from you in a most humiliating and painful way. There is no need to attack, assassinate, or connive to do evil. IT IS COMING TO YOU. The question is, will you be ready?

    So… make farming independently illegal just as all the useless jobs propped up by the government’s fake economy start disappearing. Of course, planting a stick in an empty spot and calling it yours was made illegal some time ago, so for us slave peasants with no money to begin with, farming our own land was never an option (of course, we could just choose not to obey), but this bill is worse than insane. It’s just plain malicious. Where are the ‘Children of the Corn’ when you need them?

  35. The States and the People have a Right to prevent a corrupt and treasonous federal government from having the power to starve us into submission. We have a right to grow, process, transport, store and engage in economic activity. They have No right to this potentially genocidal weapon of government enforced famine.

    In 1492, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion.2 This was the reply:

    ” Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves.

    The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

    1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.

    2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.

    3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.

    4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. [Emphasis mine]

    5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.

    6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.


    2. The reply is found in the sixteenth century Spanish book, La Silva Curiosa, by Julio-Iniguez de Medrano (Paris, Orry, 1608), on pages 156 and 157, with the following explanation: “This letter following was found in the archives of Toledo by the Hermit of Salamanca, (while) searching the ancient records of the kingdoms of Spain; and, as it is expressive and remarkable, I wish to write it here.” — vide, photostat facing page 80.

    ~ The above was quoted from Waters Flowing Eastward by Paquita de Shishmareff, pp. 73-74
