Monsanto’s Spies

The agri-chemical giant has a storied history of using shady tactics to attack critics and influence the media.

This is an excellent article and this is the conclusion. Link to the full article is at the end of this post.

The full nature and extent of this “weird shit” are still unknown, but Monsanto’s emails and internal documents released during litigation have brought it into sharper focus. In a January deposition, a Monsanto representative said that in 2016 the company spent “around $16 or 17 million” on activities to defend glyphosate. A July 2019 Monsanto document released during litigation details the company’s broad plan to combat Freedom of Information Act requests that have uncovered ties between the company and third-party spokespeople in academia, noting that Byrne was tasked with working with academics to support Monsanto.

Eamon Javers is the Washington correspondent at CNBC and author of “Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage,” which traces the history of corporate spy firms such as Hakluyt. “The techniques we most often see in corporate espionage ― dumpster diving, physical surveillance, and false identities ― can supplement more staid documentary and informational research on a target,” he said.

Javers added that the public remains unaware of how these espionage efforts can help shape the news and damage a company’s critics. “Reporters are more often interested in whether the information is true or not than where it comes from.”

Robert F Kennedy Jr Explains How Big Pharma Completely Owns Congress

It’s truly unbelievable that, in this day and age, education has turned into brainwashing. Science is corrupted, altered, changed, ignored, and swept under the rug just because it threatens the interests of a few powerful people and the corporations they hide behind.

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”   Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s pesticide Round Up,  is a perfect example, as science has been showing for decades how incredibly harmful it is for human health and the environment, yet it’s approved as ‘safe’ for use in the western world. It’s no mystery why glyphosate is illegal in the majority of countries around the world. The same goes for genetically modified foods, which is what Round Up was designed to be used on. Years ago, a lawsuit forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

You are not gluten intolerant, you are glyphosate intolerant

Study blames Roundup herbicide for gluten intolerance and celiac disease epidemic.

“Celiac disease, and, more generally, gluten intolerance, is a growing problem worldwide, but especially in North America and Europe, where an estimated 5% of the population now suffers from it,” researchers wrote in a meta-analysis of nearly 300 studies.

“Here, we propose that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide, Roundup®, is the most important causal factor in this epidemic,” they add.

The study, published in the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology in 2013, was completely ignored by the media except for Mother Earth News and The Healthy Home Economist.

Now that glyphosate is getting the attention it deserves, being named as the culprit in a $280 million cancer lawsuit and labeled as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization and the state of California, it may be time to look at the chemical’s role in a related disease:..

Farmers Are Using Flowers Instead of Chemicals to Escape Pest Damage

Many organic farmers are going back to older practices by cultivating an environment where natural pest predators can live. They’re growing flowers amongst their other crops, creating a home for creatures like parasitic wasps, who eat aphids in their larval state. It’s been a common practice to grow flowers around the perimeter of farmland acres, because it encourages biodiversity. But agriculturalists are experimenting with strips of flowers within their crops, creating a highway for bugs to travel farther and cover more ground for pest control…

The Monsanto Papers – Secret Tactics and Corrupted Science

October 26th, 2018
By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Known as “the Monsanto papers”, the evidence presented in legal cases against Monsanto includes email correspondence and corporate documents that create a comprehensive narrative of the corporation’s malfeasance and collusion with U.S. regulatory agencies.

The Australian documentary, “The Monsanto Papers” (featured below), reveals the secret tactics used by global chemical giant Monsanto (now owned by Bayer AG), to protect its bestselling herbicide, Roundup.

The film starts out with a quick history of Roundup and how its now-clearly absurd safety claims (such as “it’s biodegradable,” “safe enough to drink,” and “safer than table salt”) made it into the worlds’ most widely used weed killer, used by farmers and private gardeners alike. Indeed, it was at one time known as “the world’s most trusted herbicide,” but those days are now long gone.

Between 1974 — the year glyphosate entered the U.S. market — and 2014, glyphosate use increased more than 250 fold in the United States. Today, an estimated 300 million pounds are applied on U.S. farmland annually, and globally, nearly 5 billion pounds (over 2 billion kilograms) of glyphosate are applied to some 70 types of farm crops each year.

Roundup Is Far From Harmless

Mounting evidence suggests Roundup is far from harmless, and evidence unearthed during legal discovery shows Monsanto has been well aware of its product’s toxic nature, and has been covering it up…

Monsanto Papers Reveal Company’s Efforts to Squash Evidence of Carcinogenicity

August 10, 2018, a jury ruled in favor of plaintiff Dewayne Johnson in a truly historic case against Monsanto. Johnson — the first of 9,000 pending legal cases — claimed Monsanto’s Roundup caused his Non-Hodgkin lymphoma…

Fluoride Literally Turns the Pineal Gland to Stone

Fluoride in the water can harm more than it helps. Here’s just one more reason why we would be better off without fluoride (a toxic byproduct of the aluminum smelting industry) in our drinking water. Workers who add fluoride to the water have to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from this caustic substance – and we are drinking it?

So what is a pineal gland and why is it important to the quality of human life?

Weapons of Mass Feminization

If you’ve ever wondered where all the alpha males have gone, the interaction between chemistry and biology may offer a clue.

Gender bending chemicals are everywhere, literally impossible to avoid. They act as endocrine disruptors (EDs) that block, decrease, or overstimulate hormones. Most commonly, EDs mimic estrogen, lower testosterone and  prevent the male hormone from doing its job, causing males to exhibit more female traits. The resulting hormonal imbalances may be at the root  of disturbing worldwide trends for males that include delayed puberty, falling sperm counts, shrinking size of genitals, far fewer boys with far more genital deformities being born than ever before, and a rise in gender fluidity as boys are increasingly feminized. A similar effect is seen across the planet in wildlife, with reports of a rise in hermaphrodite amphibians, male fish developing eggs in their testicles and complete sex change in species with ED exposure. Governmental-industrial alliances have unleashed weapons of mass feminization throughout Planet Earth, involving all inhabitants in a dangerous and uncontrolled experiment whose results point to a dystopian future, the likes of which make Soylent Green look tame.

The NIH National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says this about EDs:

Weapons Of Mass Feminization

Mass experimentation with hormones began early in the 20th century, but the term “endocrine disruptor” wasn’t coined until 1993…

Zika Spraying Kills Millions of Bees in South Carolina

Aerial spraying of insecticide to combat the spread of the Zika virus in South Carolina has resulted in the deaths of millions of bees, according to local reports…

The aerial spraying began on Aug. 28. County officials usually opt for truck spraying, but the recent spread of Zika prompted officials to use a new method—one that was detrimental to local beekeepers.

“All of my equipment is contaminated, my honey is contaminated, my cone is contaminated, I’m totally shut down here,” Juanita Stanley told Live 5 News.

Use of term “FDA” should always trigger a warning

Monsanto tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety of their products; it is the job of the FDA. The FDA tells the public it is not their job to ensure safety; it is the job of the food producer. Patricia says it’s your job to ensure the care and feeding of your body… and mind.

If you put low-lead gas into a car that requires diesel fuel, it will not run well – and if you put diesel fuel into a car that requires low-lead gas, it will not run well. If you put sugar in your tank, it will destroy your engine. Try running it on grains and other plants sprayed with glyphosate, the deadly ingredient in Roundup.

Please watch what you put into your mouth very carefully, because if you put commercially (as opposed to organically) grown foods into your mouth, you might just be taking your life into your own hands. If your body is less than radiantly healthy, you might want to check what is going into it. And what is the rational response when one discovers s/he is being poisoned by industrial foods?… to stop patronizing the criminal organizations that are poisoning the world’s farms. Don’t buy it; don’t eat it. You owe it to yourself… and you’ll save when you don’t have to buy pharmaceutical drugs to “cure” whatever it is that ails you, which was caused by .

Grow a garden… without chemicals. Just soak the soil, put a seed down, cover it with a little soil, keep watered until it sprouts and then water gently after that. Things grow! Nature is not stupid. It’s been doing quite well for thousands of years without chemicals that require hazmat suits. The yield on organic farms is no less than that on farms sprayed with chemicals. We’ve been had, folks. Let’s turn it around. In WWII, everyone had a “Victory Garden”. Let us now declare our victory over a food system that has made us sick. And now to Jon Rappoport’s article on “our friend”, the Food and Drug Administration.

The use of the term “FDA” should be the trigger for immediate investigation, whenever it appears. For example, “The FDA has ruled (name of drug) is safe and effective.”…

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Barbara Starfield, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “Is US health really the best in the world?”: Medical drugs kill 106,000 Americans per year. That’s a million killings per decade.

Every one of the killer drugs is certified as safe and effective by the FDA, the Agency tasked with protecting the health of the American people.

Example: Vioxx was approved for use by the FDA on May 20, 1999. Eventually, it caused 88,000-140,000 cases of heart disease. Conservative death-toll number? 60,000. (An estimated 58,000 American troops died during the Vietnam War.)…

In a stunning interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Kavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies (“Former FDA Reviewer Speaks Out About Intimidation, Retaliation and Marginalizing of Safety,” 7/29/2012).
