Farm Wars

It is now official. Black is white and white is black. Toxic chemicals are good for the environment, no matter how much havoc they cause, and the companies that manufacture them, spread them around like jelly on a p-nut butter sandwich – polluting our water, air, soil, and everything else needed to sustain life are now the “greenest” companies on the planet.

If you think differently, then you are wrong. Just ask Newsweek. This magazine has just declared Monsanto to be one of the top environmentally friendly companies in the U.S. and the world.

On June 3, the St. Louis Business Journal had this to say:

Monsanto Co. was named one of the world’s top companies in corporate sustainability and environmental impact, according to Newsweek rankings released Thursday.

The Creve Coeur-based agritech company is No. 12 in the U.S. and No. 22 in the world based on its environmental impact and sustainability efforts, marking a jump from last year’s rankings. Monsanto (NYSE: MON) ranked No. 52 in the U.S. and No. 84 globally in 2015.

Hugh Grant, CEO of Monsanto was overjoyed!

“We’re delighted by the acknowledgment of our sustainability efforts,” CEO and Chairman Hugh Grant said in a statement. “Through efforts with farmers on carbon neutral crop production and our company’s intention to be carbon neutral by 2021, we hope to help create a food-secure world that protects the environment.”


However, the people who have actually been poisoned by this “green,” award-winning company, have something entirely different to add to the conversation:

The Hague, 16 October 2016: Monsanto and the Poison Cartel are guilty of crimes against our planet and humanity. This is the verdict from the People’s Assembly organized in the Hague alongside the Monsanto Tribunal. The voices of the soil, of the seeds, of farmers, consumers, and of people from all over world converged and reverberated in a new unity across diversity. The poison making industry is destroying life on Earth, our health and our democracies. The Peoples assembly resolved to end a century of ecocide and genocide.

wesaysoPoisoning the world for profit and getting declared one of the most environmentally friendly companies on the planet while doing so. I wonder who got paid off for that one, Newsweek (or should I say Newspeak)?

Still, you gotta admit; that’s one helluva PR campaign…

    Can you please look into your state’s pension fund to understand why they push this garbage on us so much? Monsanto is a primary holding of ALL government pensions. This is the only reason why this stuff is still ‘legal’ because the state is the proxy voters AND the people who write the laws for (or against) any company on this planet.

    Can you please find some time to simply look at this link and explore this so you can understand this matter?

    This is just 1…… 1 fund in the $25 TRILLION pension fund system. Scroll to Raytheon, Monsanto, Syngenta, any company you want, pharma… whatever. People need to see the roots of the problem and unfortunately no one out there is working on this.

    The carbon schemes are solely made for big oil (go on, look at the pension fund holdings see if you think they will tax Exxon, Shell etc. now if they have not been doing so in the past)

    This is why Monsanto is so glad they will be ‘Carbon Neutral’ and that will make it all better.

    Propagandist by definition make propaganda. Public lies for public consumption, and the truth be damned. It never even enters into the equation. The MSM lies for a living. The talking heads just regurgitate the company line. But as more and more people wake up to the truth, the MSM is getting more and more desperate. So, just remember folks, cheerios and glyphosate (gmos and poison) are good fod you. Or so say THE FORK TONGUED DEMONS AT NEWSWEEK.

    BTW – who did that nifty Newspeak meme that mimics Newsweek?

    Perfect Barbara – well said. And Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize during his first tour of duty for the elites while Henry Kissinger got that same award in the 1970s while prolonging the Vietnam invasion. Up is down and everything is upside down.

    Amazing how Monsanto huffs and puffs over this insanity. Great PR.

    Not that this changed News Weeks Credibility for me.I’d be more apt to believe something out of Marvel Comics over News Week. Doesn’t Marvel own News Week?
