‘Buy It or Else’: Inside Monsanto and BASF’s Strategy to Force Farmers to Buy GMO Seeds and Pesticides

Get poisoned or get on board.

That’s the choice soybean farmers such as Will Glazik face. The past few summers, farmers near Glazik’s central Illinois farm have sprayed so much of the weedkiller dicamba that it has polluted the air for hours and sometimes days.

As Glazik puts it, there are two types of soybeans: Monsanto’s, which are genetically engineered to withstand dicamba, and everyone else’s.

Glazik’s soybeans have been the damaged ones. His soybean leaves will curl up, then the plants will become smaller and weaker. He’s lost as much as 40 bushels an acre in some fields, a huge loss when organic soybeans are $20 a bushel. He has to hold his breath every year to see if the damage will cause him to lose his organic certification.

His neighbors who spray dicamba are frustrated with him, he said. There’s an easy solution to avoid damage, they tell him, “Buy Monsanto’s seeds.”

This reality is what Monsanto was counting on when it launched dicamba-tolerant crops, an investigation by the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting found.

Monsanto’s new system was supposed to be the future of farming, providing farmers with a suite of seeds and chemicals that could combat more and more weeds that were becoming harder to kill.

Instead, the system’s rollout has led to millions of acres of crop damage across the Midwest and South; widespread tree death in many rural communities, state parks and nature preserves; and an unprecedented level of strife in the farming world….

FCC Gives $9.2B for Rural 5G, Even Though Taxpayers Already Paid for Safe High Speed Internet

High speed internet is safer and more secure with a wired internet connection (see 12). According to a lawsuit and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman, all Americans have already paid to have this where they live (see 1234). Regardless, the FCC is giving telecoms billions more to install 5G in rural areas even though it is NOT safe or necessary for high speed internet.

The FCC was a corrupt and “captured agency before Trump was elected (see 12). Lawsuits have been filed against them for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation as well as 5G on Earth (see 1234) and in space. Doctors and scientists have asked MANY TIMES, and again recently, that health and environmental risks from radiation from 5G, cell towers and other wireless sources be evaluated by experts with no conflicts of interest (see also 123). The agency refuses to update 24-year-old federal wireless radiation exposure guidelines.

Warnings about launching more satellites into space continue to pour in from various credible sources (see 12). Nevertheless, millions of taxpayer dollars are going to SpaceX as well….

In 2019 telecom executives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they had NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe. American 5G opposition continues to increase for a variety of reasons in addition to health and safety risks (see 123456, 7). Federal agencies and credible experts have warned that it will threaten jobs, national security, public safety, and weather forecasting accuracy (see 12). Congress members have safety concerns as well (see 12). In addition to municipalities filing lawsuits against the agency, they have passed resolutions to ban 5G until studies prove it’s safe (see 1234, 56) and ordinances to limit and/or control installation. State representatives in Hawaii and Illinois have introduced 5G bills to protect constituents.

The majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment. Cities worldwide AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums.

Nevertheless, a few months ago, Trump reintroduced his proposal to have a nationalized 5G plan and The Department of Defense (DoD) wants to own and operate it with Google. American legislators and organizations have voiced opposition to this scenario as well.

Recently, the U.S. Government Accountability Office identified serious challenges with 5G deployment. Americans don’t need 5G for high speed internet. Americans have already paid for safer high speed internet. Didn’t Trump promise to give the country back to the people?…

Highwire: NEW DETAILS IN COVID TESTING SCANDAL

New details have emerged about the test used for #COVID19, highlighting serious inaccuracies in results and past comments by the tests’ creator doubting the accuracy of PCR testing.

German virologist Christian Drosten’s guidelines on detection of the novel coronavirus for the PCR tests was accepted after only 24 hours of surveillance before becoming the standard. His paper is now being contested and peer reviewed for the first time allowing for some shocking discoveries of error that would potentially render the PCR test completely useless.
