There has been a lot of speculation as to the validity of Donald Trump’s persona in the alternative media as the President that will save America from the globalists. But is this true? Or is he simply another pawn in the globalist game, and we are being manipulated once again to throw our support behind a minion of the elite? This question must be asked or we are going down the same old road, blinders on, cheering for the elected puppet.
Trump appointed Sonny Perdue to Ag Secretary, and he is going for his confirmation hearing today, March 23, 2017. This appears to be a major a win for Monsanto and the GMO factory since the Biotechnology Innovation Organization named him their Governor of the Year.
Sonny Perdue is the former Governor of Georgia. He supports factory farms, pesticides and genetically engineered crops. In 2009, he signed a bill into law that blocked local communities in Georgia from regulating factory farms to address animal cruelty, pollution or any other hazard. He took money from Monsanto and other pesticide companies for his gubernatorial campaigns. The Biotechnology Innovation Organization, a front group for the GMO industry, named Perdue their 2009 Governor of the Year.
I think that we have our work cut out for us as our new President is a biotech supporter:
When asked, “Do you support the use of biotechnology in food products and oppose efforts to require mandatory labeling for foods simply because they contain ingredients derived from biotechnology?” Donald Trump reportedly answered: “Yes.”
Now, a series of recent appointments to the Agricultural Advisory Committee is adding even more concern to possible pro-GMO leanings…
Notable appointments are:
Pat Roberts: The architect of the infamous, recently passed and democracy destroying DARK Act along with Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow.
Charles Herbster: A Nebraska cattle-breeding company owner as well as the owner of another company that sells chemicals and fertilizers, Herbster is the pick of Trump to chair his Agricultural Advisory Committee. He’s a major funder and member of the Ag America steering committee, joining Monsanto and DuPont among others.
…Other notables on the list of more than 60 include Rodney Davis, Congressman from Illinois; who is also the House Agriculture committee and Subcommittee Chair of Bio Tech.
The list also includes representatives from huge soybean, egg and corn producers as well, most of which utilize GMOs regularly in the creation of their products.
Here is a link to the full list of Agricultural Advisor appointees.
Get ready, America, because “Making America Great Again” will most likely include continuing to flood it and the world with unregulated, unlabeled, untested genetically engineered food under the guise of “feeding the world” with biotechnology.
