Fighting Back Against Monsanto

Mexican courts are refusing to bow to Monsanto's demands, and they should be applauded for doing so:

Such concentration of ownership has granted a handful of Western corporations and the governments with which they are inseparably intertwined vast control over one of the world’s primary resources, food. And although these companies control almost all commercial seeds, whether genetically modified or not, they prefer to sell GMOs despite the fact that 16 years of official US statistics have proven that they are less productive, significantly more expensive and not (as the GMO giants claim) resistant to all pests or disease. The two main reasons for their preference for GMOs are: a) they use a lot more agrichemicals, an industry in which the same companies have a controlling stake; and b) by patenting GMO seeds, the companies can guarantee that farmers will have to come back for more, year after year, decade after decade.

Put simply, it is enforced dependence on a scale never before imagined. As the dark lord of U.S. geopolitics Henry Kissinger is alleged to have once said, “control oil, you control the nations; control food and you control the people”. Thankfully, in countries like Mexico, Colombia, Chile, France, Germany, the UK and India, the resistance is rising and spreading. Whether it will be enough to head off one of the greatest threats to human freedom, health and the environment, only time will tell.

One interesting aspect of this resistance is that the American people have completely failed to stop companies like Monsanto, mainly because the US Congress and courts have been bought and paid for and/or are gutless. It's up to the rest of the world to stop the monsters which the US has spawned, and I wish them success.

Advice For The NATO Summit

Remember Colin Powell's irrefutable evidence of WMD in Iraq?

Is the same kind of crap now been peddled to NATO to justify war with Russia? The Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) think so, and they offer the following advice for the upcoming NATO summit meeting:

How Isolated Is Russia ???

Realistically, it is the United States and her vassals who are isolated from the rest of the world. Russia and the other BRICS are fully integrated with the rest of the world.

Leaked Nudity v. Raped Every Day

Most of you have no doubt heard about the so-called nude pictures hacked from the cloud and leaked on to the Internet:

While this is clearly wrong, how many of these people got concerned over the fact that CIA, FBI, NSA, and state and local police steal our personal data and rape us every day?

Get a grip, people. Nothing is safe anymore, nothing is private. If we want to get safety and privacy back, the first place to start is the US government and the tech companies that colluded with them in the theft of our data. The hackers of nude pictures are small potatoes.

FBI Still Disconnecting OKC Bombing Dots

Here is a recent report on efforts to get the FBI to admit that Tim McVeigh was assisted by at least one accomplice when he parked his truck bomb outside the Murrah Building in OKC. Apparently the FBI intimidated one of its own former undercover operatives who was scheduled to testify in the matter:

He was told he should take a vacation and that if he did testify he should suffer from a case of the "I don’t remembers”.


I have followed this issue for quite a while, and the available evidence suggests that the FBI confiscated and hid all the surveillance video tapes in OKC because at least one of them shows "John Doe No. 2" and may also show that there were explosives inside the building which detonated after the truck exploded.

Attorney Jesse Trentadue is no "conspiracy theorist". He is a rational person who has discovered that his government is lying.

Apparently the former undercover operative may have participated in FBI's Operation PATCON and similar operations which were intended to bad jacket and ensnare militia members and other patriotic groups. In other words, they were more instances of the US government waging war on its own citizens:

By the way, in a possibly unrelated event former FBI Director Louis Freeh was injured in a strange car accident a few weeks after the above-mentioned trial related to the OKC bombing:

PATCON appears to have been terminated by the time Freeh became FBI Director. He was the Director when the OKC bombing occurred, during the subsequent investigation, and when Kenny Trentadue was murdered, apparently by the FBI itself. Freeh left the FBI a few months prior to the 9/11 attacks, and his ultimate replacement (Robert Mueller) had only been on the job for a week when the attacks occurred.

How convenient: hand the job to a novice right before the biggest terror attack in US history.

Images From Great Depression And WPA

Great photo essay for Labor Day 2014:

Note well that back then the US government at least did something for We The People. Today all its efforts are directed toward enrichment of bankgangsters, corporations, and their accomplices in the one percent.

Realistically, "labor" has been reduced to "slavery" on a global basis.

Let Them Eat The Rich !!!

Here is a very worthwhile critique of the US non-economy and the American nightmare:

For decades the American middle class bought into a plethora of Ayn Rand-inspired notions regarding their economic strategy. Keep your head down, plow money into your 401K and get to work on time. If you did these things, you could count on Wall Street money shufflers and their corporate “job creator” tentacles to lift your little life raft with their graft-ridden blood-soaked tide.

It was a formula predicated on endless resource wars in faraway lands, a necessary scorn for the poor, an infatuation with the wealthy and the shutting down of one’s humanity.

Reinforced by a barrage of propaganda from corporate media, the sharecropper climbers embraced their treadmill, sure that one day they would reap the spoils of the class war which the bankers have waged against workers for centuries.

The price of admission to this fairy tale was steep - they checked their souls at the door. They were no different than those corrupt Congressmen they loved to bash before promptly re-electing, no different from the suits at Goldman Sachs who made a living destroying countries with 401K proceeds. They were bought and paid for. They were part of the problem.

Unemployment and underemployment are chronic. Poverty is at its highest level since 1993. Unions have never been weaker. Concentration of economic power continues at record levels. Not content with the Henry Ford model of capitalism – pay your workers a decent wage and they will be able to buy your product – a new class of parasitic financiers has emerged.

They make their living not by creating jobs, but by destroying them. They hold no loyalty to country, moving their sweat shops to China and their money to Dubai or Switzerland. They justify their greed through fronts like the Tea Party, which spews out all manner of tired Frederick Hayek, Chicago-school dogma – deployed since their guru Reagan began gutting this country’s economy for his bankster directors.

Any sentient being, having done such grave harm to others, would say they were sorry. Instead, these psychopaths blame the other guy and continue to push their failed dogma. The race to the bottom is nearly run.

One cannot compromise with village idiots. Throw an insane person a bone and they will chew off your leg. A deep-seated self-hatred – encouraged by their trillionaire banker handlers – drives these emotional infants to Puritanical notions that We the People don’t deserve a good life. We deserve suffering, sacrifice and hardship, just like Big Daddy IMF says.

And that is exactly where we are headed.

Eat the Rich!
