Farm Wars

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:

Sec2Coordination 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.  

Reducing Red Tape: Regulatory Reform Goes International

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.

WTO

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.

    The thing is, we who have similar concerned views MUST try to impart the knowledge. But I find that being labelled a “crank” for trying to help awaken my contacts is very disheartening.

    Still, a good 33% come aboard, so I guess I should be pleased.

    However, WE must work out a simple but gimmicky CODE OF PROCEDURE for our friends and family to follow when buying food so that anything processed or interfered with becomes obvious.

    For instance, I caught my Missus giving our grand-daughter “ACTIVIA” Yoghurt by Dannon (Danone of France). I read the label:~ High Fructose Corn Syrup, Flavouring, Colour and ASPARTAME.

    Jeez, but all she could offer in her defence was ” It was a great offer”

    So….the moral there is “IF IT’S ON OFFER…CHECK THE INGREDIENTS”

    Also….ALL PACKED FOOD MEANS IT STINKS AND NEEDS CHECKING FIRST

    If we can just get some kind of MANTRA we can make more progress with those “too busy with their lives” to think about the big agenda.

    When the Top (I don’t want to say power) on the wrong way as Rothschild stipulated laws, directions generally all over the world. After that big companies start saying: “he can do it…, We can do it too.”
    Voters must investigate all politicians and remove those if necessary.
    But we have to avoid destruction as TV.It’s part of weapon against citizens.
    Richard Salent, former Pres. of CBS News quotes:
    “Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
    Rubin Frank, former NBC news pres. said:
    News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising.”

    Given all of this admins’ unconstitutional actions and NO response from the conservatives side I would speculate the opposition is concerned for the safety of their families and therefore keep their mouths shut.

    I live in a small town (5,200 pop.) in rural So. Illinois. We have a radio station that advertises Agenda 21 garbage all day and all night .. over-population, vaccines, yummy chemicals, etc., and all the “glorious farm information” is provided compliments of Monsanto. It appears that Monsanto has bribed farmers with college scholarships for their children. Two guys do a daily “radio talk show” .. they were discussing scary spiders and wondering why they didn’t get stuck in their own webs (duh), so I called in and told them, “If you want to talk about scary things, talk about Monsanto and their horrible GMO foods and sterile seeds that are killing people around the world.” They hung up on me, and then started making fun of me. A farmer called in and told them, “That lady who just called is absolutely correct. Monsanto is ruining our food supply.”

    Let the eat genetically modified cake!

  6. Goldbug36 says:

    The usurper Obama seems to think he is Dictator of the World. Nobody in his/her right mind wants Monsanto’s monster foods, but they are being forced on farmers around the world, many of whom have lost their farms and have committed suicide. Our Congress does nothing to address the issue. If they were forced to label GMOs as such, nobody would buy it. When are people going to tell Obama and the Congress that “enough is enough?”

  7. Hi Michelle,

    It’s a lot to take in. William F. Engdahl has done some excellent work on this. Here is a good article: http://www.globalresearch.ca/i.....8;aid=2202

  8. Michelle says:

    Gosh all this trade stuff is so complicated to me! Barbara, I thought that last year something was implemented in the Codex that stated that countries could not be penalized for trade barrier by not accepting GMO’s. It took like I think almost 20 years to get it agreed upon and of course the U.S. resisted. So, even though I know the Codex is evil, how does this EO affect that part of the Codex. Sorry, I know my wording/terminology is terrible, hopefully you get what I’m trying to say…..
