Organic Consumers Association Funded by Big Pharma!

By Barbara H. Peterson

Farm Wars

Our food supply is in jeopardy. Not only from outside forces such as poisons from China, but from within. The very people that we look to for guidance seem to be working together to lead us straight into global food governance in the form of Codex Alimentarius. This is especially alarming when you consider that the very organizations such as the USDA and FDA, that are charged with the safeguarding and regulation of our food supply are at the forefront of the battle, leading us straight into worldwide genocide using food as a weapon.

But the USDA and FDA do not stand alone. There are others who consider food to be “fair game” in this war against the people, and they just happen to control some very large purse strings. So, who holds the purse strings behind the push to obliterate any food safeguards we may have? Let’s just pick two – Rockefeller and Merck, then take a closer look at a few of the “trusted” organizations that they fund. 

The Purse Strings

Rockefeller

Let’s take a look at just a part of what the Rockefeller crime family is involved in concerning our food supply.

Today, the Rockefellers use coercive population control tactics and food as a weapon through a front organization, CGIAR (Consultative Group on Agricultural Resources) as the Rockefellers are trying to distance themselves from public- just like the Rothschild clan has done. Engdahl reports that CGIAR operates under the umbrella of the UN World Bank, and its primary focus is the spread of GMO crops. CGIAR was created by the Rockefellers and the Ford Foundation, along with the UN World Bank in 1971 with $350 million dollars a year in funding. (MorphCity)

Financed by generous Rockefeller and Ford Foundation study grants, CGIAR saw to it that leading Third World agriculture scientists and agronomists were brought to the US to master the concepts of modern agribusiness production, in order to carry it back to their homeland. In the process they created an invaluable network of influence for US agribusiness promotion in those countries, most especially promotion of the GMO Gene Revolution in developing countries, all in the name of science and efficient, free market agriculture.(InformationLiberation)

The Rockefeller Foundation spent more than $100 million for the advance of the GMO revolution. (Engdahl – Seeds of Destruction)

Part of the Rockefeller dynasty includes a group known as Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors:

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that advises donors in their philanthropic endeavors throughout the world. The foundation is headquartered in New York City and adheres to John D. Rockefeller Sr.’s practice of managing philanthropy “as if it were a business.”[1] Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors currently advises on and manages more than $200 million in annual giving in more than 60 countries.[2] (Wikipedia)

Philanthropy can be used by business to advance a corporate image that is acceptable to certain groups of people in order to put up a benevolent facade while all the time conducting business as usual, which may or may not be so benevolent.

Merck

Now let’s take a peek at Merck:

 

Natural News

Merck and Schering-Plough recently merged to create a new company. Today, we are the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the world. We also are a global leader in consumer products and animal care. (Merck)

 


This is the second largest pharmaceutical company in the world! Merck is the epitome of Big Pharma. One of its departments is devoted to vaccines such as:

AFLURIA® (Influenza Virus Vaccine)

COMVAX® [Haemophilus b Conjugate (Meningococcal Protein Conjugate) and Hepatitis B (Recombinant) Vaccine]

GARDASIL® [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant]

M-M-R®II (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Virus Vaccine Live)

PedvaxHIB® [Haemophilus b Conjugate Vaccine (Meningococcal Protein Conjugate)]

PNEUMOVAX®23 (Pneumococcal Vaccine Polyvalent)

ProQuad® (Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella Virus Vaccine Live)

RECOMBIVAX HB® [Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant)]

RotaTeq® (Rotavirus Vaccine, Live, Oral, Pentavalent)

Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed

VAQTA® (Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated)

VARIVAX® (Varicella Virus Vaccine Live)

ZOSTAVAX® (Zoster Vaccine Live)

(MerckVaccines)

Let’s just look at one of the listed vaccines that this company supplies – Gardasil:

Even one of the top researchers behind the vaccine’s clinical trials, who has been paid by Merck to speak about its supposed wonders, is now publicly questioning it. No, I didn’t just make that up. Dr. Diane Harper told CBS News in August that some of the side effects could make the vaccine riskier than the cervical cancer it’s supposed to stop. Remember, this is the same company that rushed Vioxx through the system, and we know how that turned out. Some folks even say Merck’s HPV vaccine really stands for “Help Pay for Vioxx.” (PPJ Gazette)

Part of the Merck dynasty includes a group known as The John Merck Fund:

The late Serena S. Merck founded The John Merck Fund, a New York charitable trust named for her son, in 1970. For the first sixteen years, The Fund worked exclusively to support research into children’s developmental disabilities. Beginning in 1986, it added programs in other fields that also were of concern to Mrs. Merck and her late husband, George W. Merck. (Govtech)

Here is a little history on George W. Merck:

George Wilhelm Herman Emanuel Merck (March 29, 1894 – November 9, 1957), was the president of Merck & Co. from 1925 to 1950.

Born in New York and raised in Llewellyn Park, New Jersey, he attended Harvard College, graduating in 1915. World War I prevented him from pursuing an advanced degree in Germany; instead, he joined his father at the company. He was made president of the company in 1925, shortly before his father’s death. During the interwar years, he oversaw Merck’s involvement in the development of synthetic vitamins, sulfas, antibiotics, and hormones. During World War II, he led the War Research Service, which initiated the U.S. biological weapons program. Merck was on the cover of Time magazine on August 18, 1952, illustrating a story about the American drug industry. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage in West Orange, New Jersey. (Museum Stuff)

George Merck “oversaw Merck’s involvement in the development of synthetic vitamins, sulfas, antibiotics, and hormones.” he also “led the War Research Service, which initiated the U.S. biological weapons program.” Evidently something that was “of concern” to George Merck was biological weapons, synthetic vitamins and vaccines.

Funding Recipients

Organic Consumers Association (OCA)

One of the organizations that has received money from the likes of Rockefeller and Merck through their respective foundations is the Organic Consumers Association (OCA).

Here is a snip from the OCA’s “about” page:

The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is an online and grassroots non-profit 501(c)3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability. The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children’s health, corporate accountability, Fair Trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. We are the only organization in the US focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation’s estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers. (Organic Consumers)

That promo sounds very, very, good. That is, until you realize where the money came from to help support this organization. While some very good information can be obtained at the site, there are issues that make no sense from a pro-organic perspective, such as the following snip from an article supposedly debunking the fact that Neotame can be included in USDA organic products labeled “contains organic ingredients,” which is one of the four tiers of “organic” certification. The article was written by Cornucopia and spread far and wide by the Organic Consumers Association:

None of the bloggers who perpetuate this anti-organic myth reference primary sources to substantiate their claims. As their sources, they reference one another instead of going to the source – such as the Code of Federal Regulations.” (Organic Consumers)

Anti organic myth? The alert is out regarding this dangerous substance called Neotame that can most certainly be put in USDA “contains organic ingredients” foods, and instead of helping to alert people about this situation, the people giving the heads up and calling for the elimination of artificial substances from pure organic foods are labeled anti-organic by the people who are supposed to be the organic watch dogs of our communities. In addition, this statement by Cornucopia is a complete falsehood. All you have to do is read my article “The USDA’s Organic Deception” and click on all of the USDA and FDA source material. All of the primary reference sources are there, straight from the horse’s mouth.

So, the question arises – why would a “pro-organic” site attempt to debunk information regarding the adulteration of organic food by the USDA? Remember, the USDA and FDA are composed of the same people who brought us unlabeled GMOs in our food supply because they are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). The USDA also has a joint patent with Monsanto on the Terminator gene patent (5,723,765). And these organizations can be trusted to safeguard our organic food?

The answer to the question of why the OCA would support the USDA and FDA and attempt to eliminate opposition to the way these government agencies have taken over “organics” might just lie within the Organic Consumers Association’s (OCA) financial records:

Here are a few of the foundations that this organization has received funding from taken from Activist Cash:

John Merck Fund $200,000.00 1999 – 2002

Tides Foundation & Tides Center $45,500.00 2001 – 2002

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors $57,176.00 2000 – 2005

The following section shows that the OCA has also received funding from the International Center for Technology Assessment (CTA), which is a parent/sister corporation of the Center for Food Safety (CFS), which we will discuss in the next section:

Funding From Other Activist Groups:

Center for Public Interest Research $198,546.00 2000 – 2002

Tides Foundation & Tides Center $45,500.00 2001 – 2002

International Center for Technology Assessment $30,000.00 1998 – 1999

Anti-organic rhetoric, or accusing someone of being anti this or anti that because you want to silence them and keep the truth from coming out is a game played by those who are bought and paid for by companies overtaking the organics industry and changing it to suit their own purposes. It is the same tactic that President Bush used when he coined the phrase “either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.” Either you are with us, or you are anti-organic. Same thing. The people using this tactic count on people to trust them and not do the research themselves. So, who is truly anti-organic while pretending to be otherwise? Just follow the money trail.

International Center for Technology Assessment (CTA or ICTA) / Center for Food Safety (CFS)

Now let’s turn our sights on The International Center for Technology Assessment (CTA or ICTA) and its “sister,” the Center for Food Safety (CFS).

CTA/ICTA

This snip is taken from the CTA “about” page:

Our Mission

The International Center for Technology Assessment (CTA) is a non-profit, bi-partisan organization committed to providing the public with full assessments and analyses of technological impacts on society. CTA is devoted to fully exploring the economic, ethical, social, environmental and political impacts that can result from the applications of technology or technological systems. Visit our sister organization, The Center for Food Safety. (ICTA)

The CTA site also states that it

seeks to protect the environment, individuals, and society from technologies that have advanced more rapidly than our ability to control the pollution they produce and the other social threats they pose.”

That sounds very, very good. That is, until you realize that this organization is also a proponent of man-made global warming:

Emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are warming the Earth’s surface temperature and changing the planet’s climate.” (ICTA)

CFS

The CFS “about” page states:

The Center for Food Safety (CFS) is a non-profit public interest and environmental advocacy membership organization established in 1997 by its sister organization, International Center for Technology Assessment, for the purpose of challenging harmful food production technologies and promoting sustainable alternatives. (CFS)

Now let’s take a look at the funding for these “sister” organizations. It seems that these organizations have taken more money from the Rockefellers and Merck than Carter has pills.

The following funding is for CFS and CTA combined:

Funding From Foundations & Corporations

Foundation for Deep Ecology $1,670,080.00 1996 – 2003

John Merck Fund $1,305,000.00 1999 – 2005

Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors $465,000.00 2000 – 2003

(Activist Cash)

Here are some more recent financial documents obtained through Guidestar:

CFS: Rockefeller 2008 (p.76); Merck 2006 (p.61); Merck 2007 (p.47); Merck 2008 (p.52)

ICTA: Rockefeller 2oo6 (p.36)

Maybe this explains why the CFS was so happy with the passage of the S.510 food safety legislation, and practically jumped up and down with glee at the prospect of this bill being implemented.

The Center for Food Safety (CFS) applauds the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510) by the United States Congress. The bill which passed the House of Representatives by over seventy votes late yesterday will give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) a greater ability to safeguard our nation’s food system. (TrueFoodNow)

And just maybe now we can also understand why these two organizations initiated a petition trying to have silver listed as a pesticide by the EPA.

The Center for Food Safety (CFS), which along with its sister organization the International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) initiated the EPA petition and enlisted the other groups which signed off on the petition, received the second largest amount of funding of any group from the John Merck Fund. (Farm Wars)

It makes sense why these organizations might have a problem admitting that Codex Alimentarius is live and in color, and applaud the power given to the FDA to put small farmers on the chopping block and boost mega-corporate food control now that we see who is helping to fund them – Rockefeller and Big Pharma.

Money Talks

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!

Maybe this is why certain large non-profit activist organizations that we depend on deny that Codex, which leads directly to the systematic adulteration of our organic food supply, is being implemented daily, when it is clear that we are eyeballs deep right now.

Think of Codex implementation like a 100 mile endurance ride. It is accomplished one mile at a time. During the course of the ride there comes a time when the only option available is to finish the ride because going back is farther and may be more difficult than simply staying the course. At that point one is committed, and inextricably bound to finish one way or another. However, it is only when the final mile is finished and one arrives at the intended destination, that the ride is actually “completed.”

So, while people in high places play word games and use sleight of hand trickery leading us to believe that Codex is not being implemented, organics are still what we think they are, and the USDA and FDA are here to protect us and need more power to police our food supply, we are quickly reaching the point of no return in the race to save our food supply. These people are committed to the ride and are bound and determined to finish just what they have started, yet can still claim that Codex has not been implemented because the ride is not finished yet. They still have some distance to go.

We are smack dab in the middle of a food freedom deception so staggering that no one or nothing is immune from suspicion. We have by no means “finished” the Codex ride, but are well on our way to being inextricably bound by deception to stay the course that the United Nations dictates through the machinations of organizations funded by the likes of Rockefeller and Big Pharma. And that is a course leading straight to full Codex compliance, which means saying goodbye to healthy, pure organic food and vitamins. A globalist with organic lipstick is still a globalist.

We need to understand that nobody will fight this fight for us, much less the people being funded by Rockefeller and Merck. We need to stand up on our own and just say no! We need to support our local farmers and grow as much food as we can on our own. We need to do this now, and not wait for our “knight in shining armor” non-profit organizations suckling from the Rockefeller and Merck teats to save us. It is up to you and me to take this fight to the streets.

For those of you who think that it is no big deal that the Rockefellers and Merck fund these organizations, I would like to ask the following questions:

  • Is it too much to ask that the people supposedly fighting for our food freedom NOT take money from the very entities we are fighting against?
  • Isn’t there some sort of conflict of interest there?
  • How can you keep feeding from the same trough year after year and not be part of the herd?
  • At what point do you betray the confidence of those around you and pay your dues to the hand that feeds you?

Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me.” (IMDB)

    I worked with Cummings in the late 80″s. he is on the mark. I am sure your critique has value,and having fought corporate before-we fought general Dynamics who had their ships and submarines laced with aesbestos, which killed US saiilors, and defense workers,as a Bit of a bonus for general Dynamics THEY OWNED MOST OF THE MINES IN THE US AND CANADA…we brought them to their knees, now the sailorsn and shipyard workers will live healthier lives.
    We fought hard, and clean, and yes we recieved $$$ from corporate to help the cause, but we accomplished the mission. DESPITE THE SEEMING’CONTROLL’ Monanto has on all of us remember this, while they get an A+ in political science 101 HOW TO TAKE OVER THE US GOVERNMENT WHILE THE PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING…they are VISIABLE, and when corporate becomes so visable they become a target to unify, and solidify, a focal point for physical change. If Egyptians can confront a fascist dictator,cannot Americans Confront Monsanto…and yes they bekon us dont they?

  2. Thomas says:

    Watch the proof that Merck made Polio vaccines contaminated with SV-40 that gives you cancer and laugh about it.These people are pure evil.

  3. Bill Simone says:

    Every thing that we let happen, due to lack of input, or interest,is due to laziness , and we actually think and expect
    others to do our work for us..In Canada, our biggest complainers, are the people, that do nothing, and will not vote either way , yes or a no..To actually get involved, would, mean they are seen, and they might offend , some imagined person or group..We are unique, or we think we are, but Canada, will fall, after the united states, for obvious reason,s..All the people have to do is say no, and vote for what they want and need, as a community,and as neighbours………….Bill Simone

  4. BlueyBlogger says:

    If people would just turn off their bloody TV, and get off their lazy arses, learn the English language CORRECTLY…..they could close down Codex Alimentarius in ten seconds……..but nobody listens, so you will get what you deserve.
    People ALWAYS get the government they deserve!

  5. organicauntsandy says:

    Barbara, thanks for giving the site a look through. It’s worth your time to go through all the data. The argument page (over 130 of them) list some common misconceptions. Clicking on the articles to expand content is well worth it, and lists scientific peer reviewed sources. I thoroughly enjoy that the site allows for comments and skepticism. I’m extremely dubious of those that have a “smoking gun theory” or don’t allow for rebuttal. Technically, we should be in cooling climate, but those heat trapping gasses offer no reprieve.11 of the past 12 years have been the hottest globally, even though we are currently going through a la Nina climate shift. The extreme winter that many have experienced is just many of the side effects of a warming arctic and world. A warming arctic + more water vapor in atmosphere = high pressure system where cold arctic air is pulled across eastern Europe and the United States = very bad weather indeed. No reprieve in Climate Change, though. These record breaking weather events are followed by record breaking high temps and more extreme weather events.

  6. Mark says:

    I used to get newsletters from OCA for a few years, but many of their articles were “off” just enough to concern me. After repeated failed attempts to set them straight, I gave up and unsubscribed. Appears I was right to be concerned.

  7. Organicauntsandy,

    I am listening to a very good interview regarding the phony “global warming” science that was used to manipulate data to drive us to accept a global carbon tax. I went to the site you suggested and looked at an article on the front page that shows a warming trend from 1880. In between that time, just how many severe cold and warm instances occurred within that time? Statistics are skewed by using warmer and shorter periods of time. I will be posting the audio file that I am listening to now just as soon as I get it uploaded. We are currently in a cooling period.

  8. organicauntsandy says:

    I’m confused as to why you suggest being a proponent of man-made global warming is a bad thing. A proponent is someone in agreement that humans have become a force of nature, and are disrupting natural cycles. Climate change is real, and it’s a bad thing. So why would an organization in favor of that scientific view be a bad thing? The best site for information on climate change I’ve come across is http://www.skepticalscience.com

  9. truth turtle says:

    Read the current issue of Foreign Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations mouthpiece.

    This periodical says social media is the key to spreading truth more rapidly in an attempt to make government more accountable.

    Could we develop a network of rapid response based on twitter and facebook?

    If the other side sees this as important, why are we overlooking?

  10. Taylor Moore says:

    The narrator made a mistake on the David Rockefeller quote given to the Trilateral Commission, where the narrator states: “But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards world government.” It’s not “work” but “world”. The “world” is now much more sophisticated.

  11. Darth,

    Financials don’t lie, even if they come from ActivistCash. I expect blowback, and am not afraid to stand on the facts. I ran across PETA in my wanderings, and believe you are correct about the funding. The truth will win out, of that I am sure.

  12. amicus curiae says:

    Well done expose’ Barbara! shows the backdoor deviants for what they are, and how OCA has sold us out.
    figures really, the rockerfella ties with pharma , if you can ruin food, with hold vitamins and minerals and force pharmas as the only treatment..well its game set and match.
    I have Buzzed it and shared it with all my seriously organic friends. the only safe food is what you grow and know.
    see the FDA purposely with held assessing drug tainted dairies too, due to industry pressure, so its fine by the FDA to have folks absorbibg veterinary strength meds/combos of, via food?

  13. Darth Chaos says:

    You do know that by citing Activistcash.com as your source of the OCA’s funding sources, you are setting yourself up to be labeled a CCF (Center for Consumer Freedom) shill by the pro-organics crowd. I’ve already been labeled a CCF shill by PETAphiles for exposing the fact that PETA and CCF are both Rockefeller funded.

    In essence, Monsanto controls both the GMO shills (CCF, CSPI) and the fake “pro-organic/anti-GMO” opposition. It’s just like the globalists funding the fake “anti-globalization” puppets like Medea Benjamim.

    You have identified one of the betrayers, but didn’t use a broad enough brush. If you can identify those who own and operate the private international money factory, known as the US Federal Reserve, you will have more representative list.

  15. Criss says:

    Thank you so much for this info. I had already stopped buying most organic anything, except Organic Valley, sorry Ned I didn’t know. I’m looking into that now. But I finally found a local farmer and I buy his milk and eggs. He has meat every now and then. But I must say it is much harder to get organic fruit and vegetables in my area. I don’t know what I can trust.

    I started all of this about 4 years ago, and the other day I was in the grocery store with my son and I said “you know there really is very little in here that we can eat”. What have we done to ourselves?

  16. Lee in Kansas City says:

    An outstanding article. Thank you! I’m glad to see that Rense is keeping track of your work and then offering links. Your work deserves all the attention it can get!

    It’s becoming harder and harder to know what food to trust (labels notwithstanding). Those who can’t move to the country may need to learn how to grow food indoors on window sills, in the basement with grow lights, etc.

    I’m quite worried about whether or not this kind of awareness is reaching those in the 30 and below generation. My sons, for example, tend to blow off my comments about food dangers, and most likely don’t read the articles I send them. Beyond those issues, I also bring up matters like chemtrails. They also blow off such comments, and tell me I’m getting paranoid.

    I figure it must frighten them to consider such hard realities. A part of them must know that if they take a thorough look at what goes on behind the scenes, they’ll have to change their inner paradigms. They’ll have to factor in that institutions, corporations, and government entities have been and will gladly hurt them for profit/power. (Michael Jackson: they don’t really care about us.)

    If my sons’ peers wer talking them about similar things, I think they’d take these issues more seriously. I don’t know how to make that happen, however. I’ve had a good life (which I hope to keep as good as possible), but I really do fear for the upcoming generations.

  17. Anthony says:

    Very good article.

  18. Robert Hart says:

    The fact that neither political party is up in arms about this should tell you all you need to know as to whom we can count on to stop the insanity- US. The problem is those of us who are enlightened on this, and other subjects (no pun intended) are in the distinct minority.

    I try to awaken the uninformed, but to no (or very little) avail.

  19. Great work in this article, Barb! It seems these fiends in their counting houses are sewing up loose ends to force us to eat and drink the toxic crap mass produced by them for supermarketing. I wonder how long it will be before growing your own food becomes a felony. It is no wonder that the Amish are mocked so often, and local farm products, like fruitcakes, cider, raw milk, roadside produce stands, etc. are scorned in media. Small family farmers and homesteaders need our support. Thanks, Barb!

  20. nedlud says:

    Hi Barb, hi Paul G., hi everybody here,

    I (nedlud again) just want to add this:

    To the north of us, oh, about ten miles from our farm, there is a guy still milking cows, still on the Organic Valley truck. He’s sick, he has to have a full-time (younger) hired man to do the hard work. His kids are all asthmatic and want nothing to do with the farm. His wife works full-time at the hospital…

    …this is ‘organic’? This is an Organic Valley success story?

    Last I heard he was looking for another career.

    Take care everybody.

    Let’s not forget NOFA, and Family Farm Coalition as dependants as well. Family Farm Defenders is the FFC chapter in WI and garnered moneys for fighting premises registration and did nothing, except travel to Mexico touring farms there.

  22. Cassandra Anderson says:

    Anyone can research foundations and ‘non-profits’ at guidestar.org. The John Merck Fund invests in Big Pharma companies like Genentech that manufacture GMO drugs. John Merck Fund has made grants to the Abortion Access Project, Rockefeller Family Fund, Tides Center and the Sierra Club in 2008 (see the guidestar 990 section). Check it out for yourself!

  24. La Tierra says:

    I want to say “Thank you” to Barbara for this informative information. We as the general public are in the dark on so many things.

    I do not trust the “organic” label anymore. My family and I are in the process of changing our lifestyle towards a more self-sustaining one- moving to the country, growing our own food, getting to know small local farmers and direct food sources, talking to people around us who are doing the same thing.

    I hate to hear how these big corporations are putting small farmers out of business or stealing their farms with their claim to GMO seeds that drifted unto a non-GMO farming field! And what is going to happen to America if it gets totally dependent on imported foods and we have a cold war with any of these countries?! We are getting more and more “organic” foods in the grocery stores that are from Mexico, Vietnam, Venezuela, China, etc.-furthermore, how can one really know if this produce is even “organic”?! Something is definitely amiss.

  25. nedlud says:

    You might as well burn any money you have and poke yourself in your good eye (if you have even one), as support these large and well-funded ‘citizen’ groups and so-called ‘organic’ (whatever!) organizations. They are neither for citizens, nor for organic. They are FOR PROFIT FOR THEMSELVES.

    They all operate on the established modern (fascist) business principles, and use exclusively what has become well known as ‘perception management–heavy doses of self-promotion and propaganda, and, complete and total deception of a gullible, uninformed public. OCA, Cornucopia, MOSA et al., care little about people and care entirely about their bottom line, which is profit for themselves and their own questionable (to say the least) associates and activities. It is a gravy train for them and a highly regulated and enforced ‘Bataan death march’ for us.

    Here is a link to how Organic Valley (CO-0P) conducts its business affairs (somewhat of a sanitary article from David Gumpert of The Complete Patient, kinder in words than I would ever write, but still you will get further the idea of how, in this case, OV’s strict business {fascist} principles of the {fascist} marketplace dominate and rule out even the slightest traces of human decency and/or genuine good will.): http://www.thecompletepatient......-here.html

    As I have written before, Organic Valley completely destroyed our small family dairy operation, one that had been struggling to survive and function on a truly organic, traditional agriculture-type basis and on principles of thrift and modesty (as far as farm size) for 30 years….we did manage to raise three great kids…Organic Valley simply did not care about us and does not care about anyone who does not facilitate ENOUGH, their profits. They are evil. I repeat, THEY ARE EVIL.

    We call on the European Parliament to stop the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD), Directive 2004/24/EC, which is set to remove access to the vast majority of herbal medicinal products beginning 1 April 2011.

    THMPD abridges the rights of each European citizen to self-determination in managing health. It goes far beyond reasonable controls over dangerous products, and enters the realm of coercion by limiting options for treating health issues.

    The public’s access to herbal products that have traditionally been freely available must continue uninterrupted.

    Target: European Union Committee on Petitions

    Bless you, Barb, with this hard, detailed research. The best we can all do is pass your work onto everyone we know. I am grateful that the heavy hitter websites (David Icke, etc.) are picking up on your research and getting it out to a hugely wide audience…..

    This is a very informative, excellent article. While I have not given any money to the OCA for a while, I still get their newsletter, and they still call asking for money. I am going to call them on their acceptance of resources from Rockefeller and Merck. Where I live, we get two daily newspapers, the Sacramento Bee, and the San Francisco Chronicle……..in both papers, any articles written about the new Food Safety Law deal primarily with the increased data to be collected and available regarding where a food source came from, and whether it has been recalled or not. In some cases you can even find out who the farmer was that grew it, and gain the ability to contact them. While on the surface these are all good things to know, as usual, it is what is included in the bill, but NOT included in the press articles, which will come to haunt us. Most of what appears in our Mainstream News Media is a deflection, a manipulated study in how to get people to accept that which in the long run is disastrous. Thank heavens for sites like this one, and people such as Barbara Peterson who continue to deal in truth, and provide us with REAL news. Thank you.
