The United States, inc., in collusion with the biotech industry, which is headed by none other than Monsanto et. al., is successfully conducting a food war with the nations around it.
The USDA and Monsanto, using international Free Trade agreements as a club, have a penchant for attempting to force other countries under threat of penalty for creating a barrier to free trade, into accepting the unacceptable at their borders, in the form of genetically modified products (GMOs). And now we have the Executive Order on Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation, another tool that can be used to push GMOs worldwide.
On May 1, 2012, the Executive Order on Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation was signed:
Today, President Obama has built on Executive Order 13563 by signing a historic Executive Order on Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation. The new Executive Order will promote American exports, economic growth, and job creation by helping to eliminate unnecessary regulatory differences between the United States and other countries and by making sure that we do not create new ones.
From the Trenches reported the following:
Considering the many international security agreements the traitors occupying our highest seats of power have entered into, this latest executive order can absolutely be used to institute gun confiscation laws/regulations, without any consent by our Congress or our Judicial.
Possible gun control measures are one disturbing aspect of this, but there is another angle here that needs to be addressed. This newest E.O. is designed to promote the goals of Executive Order 13563, which affirmed Executive Order 12866, which established the Regulatory Working Group. One of these goals is to examine strategies for developing international regulatory cooperation particularly in emerging technology areas:
Sec. 2. Coordination of International Regulatory Cooperation. (a) The Regulatory Working Group (Working Group) established by Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993 (Regulatory Planning and Review), which was reaffirmed by Executive Order 13563, shall, as appropriate:
(iii) examine, among other things:
(A) appropriate strategies for engaging in the development of regulatory approaches through international regulatory cooperation, particularly in emerging technology areas, when consistent with section 1 of this order;
Such coordination requires
Eliminat[ing] unnecessary regulatory differences between the United States and other countries and by making sure that we do not create new ones.
So, just what “unnecessary regulatory differences” might they be looking to eliminate, or harmonize? You guessed it – the supposed “barriers to trade” that create “unnecessary obstacles” for the biotech industry, because all regulations must be based upon “sound science.”
Over the past year, the Federal Government has been working to implement President Obama’s directions for a 21st-century regulatory system, which he described in Executive Order 13563, “Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review.” Executive Order 13563 requires U.S. regulators, to the extent permitted by law, to select approaches that maximize net benefits; choose the least burdensome alternative; increase public participation in the rulemaking process; design rules that are simpler and more flexible, and that provide freedom of choice; and base regulations on sound science. Executive Order 13563 also calls for an ambitious, government-wide “lookback” at existing rules, with the central goal of eliminating outdated requirements and unjustified costs.
This is the same “sound science” that declares GMOs and glyphosate to be safe in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary. Most of this evidence comes from other countries that have done the research and determined that they do not want GMOs. As it stands now, the U.S. cries fowl whenever another country puts up a “barrier to trade” by refusing GMO imports due to this evidence and public outcry.
The newly signed E.O. paves the way for the USDA/Monsanto to bash resistance to biotech infiltration and eliminate or harmonize international regulations to smooth the way for the USDA/Monsanto to have free reign in forcing “emerging technology” down the throats of other nations. This is another step in the total takeover of the planet by biotech interests.
If you are the stronger party, the best way to win is to agree to agree – to coexist. By signing this E.O., Obama has put into play another piece of the world domination puzzle executed by globalist interests looking to spread GMOs unabated, along with their accompanying patents and death grip on farmers worldwide.
Technical regulations and product standards may vary from country to country. Having many different regulations and standards makes life difficult for producers and exporters. If regulations are set arbitrarily, they could be used as an excuse for protectionism.
All those pesky regulations and sticky red tape that stand as a barrier to trading GMOs worldwide need to be eliminated, and one standard set by international law, to hell with individual concerns.
According to Cass Sunstein, the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs:
…the order makes clear that in eliminating such differences, we will respect domestic law and will not compromise U.S. priorities and prerogatives. Even while insisting on those priorities and prerogatives, we can eliminate pointless red tape. Today’s global economy relies on supply chains that cross national borders (sometimes more than once), and different regulatory requirements in different countries can significantly increase costs for companies doing business abroad.
All of this “red tape” that is spoken of that needs to be “eliminated” is none other than the same type of red tape and barrier to “emerging technology” that was eliminated when GMOs were declared to be “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the USDA, and force-fed to the public under stealth because no labeling is required. Can we spell Codex Alimentarius – full scale harmonization of international food standards with GMOs as the food of choice? We are one step closer to full implementation.
