“If you like your food, you can’t keep it”
– Why did Obama nationalize the U.S. food supply with executive order 13603? (Natural News, Aug 26, 2015):
In March 2012, President Obama quietly signed an Executive Order that has major implications should some sort of national emergency arise, such as enabling the federal government to take over management and distribution of all food, water and other resources.
In issuing the order, EO 13603, titled, “National Defense Resources Preparedness,” Obama claimed authority under the Defense Production Act of 1950, a Korean War-era statute (50 U.S.C.) (see it here) that gives the government the power to marshal whatever resources are necessary to protect and defend the country during “military conflicts, natural or man-caused disasters, or acts of terrorism within the United States,” the statute says.
In justifying the order, Obama wrote in Section 102 under “Policy:”

– Consumer Reports Testing Finds All Beef Shows Signs of Fecal Contamination (AllGov, Aug 27, 2015):
Eating a hamburger in the U.S. comes with the risk that it might contain fecal matter, based on research performed for Consumer Reports.
“There’s no way to tell by looking at a package of meat or smelling it whether it has harmful bacteria or not,” said Urvashi Rangan, executive director of the Center for Food Safety and Sustainability at Consumer Reports. “You have to be on guard every time.” Continue reading »
– PepsiCo Says It Will Halt Use of Aborted Fetal Cells in Flavor Research (The New American)
To be clear, the aborted fetal tissue used to make Pepsi’s flavor chemicals does not end up in the final product sold to customers, according to reports — it is used, instead, to evaluate how actual human taste receptors respond to these chemical flavorings. But the fact that Pepsi uses them at all when viable, non-human alternatives are available illustrates the company’s blatant disregard for ethical and moral concerns in the matter.

– EU Commission Declares Report on Glyphosate Risk Assessment A Secret (Sustainable Pulse, Aug 18, 2015):
he EU Commission is refusing to let independent experts have access to the report prepared by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) on the risk assessment of glyphosate.
In a letter to Testbiotech dated 10 August 2015, the Commission says that the documents made available to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) by the German government “are protected in their entirety” as confidential. The EU Commission can see “no overriding public interest” that would justify access. There is, however, clearly public interest in the matter since the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World health Organisation (WHO) has already declared that glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans. However, the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), is claiming there would be no risk to human health.
As stated in the letter from the EU Commission, “disclosure of these documents at this stage of the process will be premature and would seriously undermine EFSA’s on-going decision-making process”. Nevertheless, it appears that Monsanto and other producers of glyphosate have already had access since they reviewed an advanced draft of the report, dated January 2015. Soon afterwards, industry quickly published a scientific paper claiming that glyphosate would not be carcinogenic. This was then promptly picked up by the German authority for the final version of its report.
– EU Commission Says None of Your Business on Glyphosate Risk Assessment (Activist Post, Aug 19, 2015):
The EU Commission is refusing to let independent researchers anywhere near a recent glyphosate risk assessment. Of course, it makes people wonder all the more when the Commission says there should be no overriding “public interest” and acts as though revealing the results were a matter of national security.
Unlike propagandists acting as scientism skeptics, who pretend it’s safe to drink glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide) – many other studies and observations prove that human exposure is hazardous. Sometimes it’s finding out that glyphosate can lead to breast cancer in parts per trillion, that it hijacks hormones and is found in breast milk and in rain samples. Sometimes it’s a farmer waking up to discover that his piglets are deformed and dying – so he sends them off to a lab. Sometimes you find out that the so-called experts who tell us to “trust science” as they pretend to drink glyphosate are actually getting funds from Monsanto. Continue reading »
– 46 million Americans go to food banks, and long lines for dwindling food supplies begin at 6:30 AM (Econommic Collapse, Aug 13, 2015):
Those that run food banks all over America say that demand for their services just continues to explode. It always amazes me that there are still people out there that insist that an “economic collapse” is not happening. From their air-conditioned homes in their cushy suburban neighborhoods they mock the idea that the U.S. economy is crumbling. But if they would just go down and visit the local food banks in their areas, they would see how much people are hurting. According to Feeding America spokesman Ross Fraser, 46 million Americans got food from a food bank at least one time during 2014. Because the demand has become so overwhelming, some food banks are cutting back on the number of days they operate and the amount of food that is given to each family. As you will see below, many impoverished Americans are lining up at food banks as early as 6:30 in the morning just so that they can be sure to get something before the food runs out. And yet there are still many people out there that have the audacity to say that everything is just fine in America. Shame on them for ignoring the pain of millions upon millions of their fellow citizens.
Poverty in America is getting worse, not better. And no amount of spin from Barack Obama or his apologists can change that fact.
This year, it is being projected that food banks in the United States will give away an all-time record 4 billion pounds of food.
Over the past decade, that number has more than doubled. Continue reading »
– American Food Banks Struggle to Keep Up Amidst “Surprising” Demand (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 14, 2015):
Food banks across the country are seeing a rising demand for free groceries despite the growing economy, leading some charities to reduce the amount of food they offer each family.
U.S. food banks are expected to give away about 4 billion pounds of food this year, more than double the amount provided a decade ago, according to Feeding America, the nation’s primary food bank network. The group gave away 3.8 billion in 2013.
While reliance on food banks exploded when the economy tanked in 2008, groups said demand continues to rise year after year, leaving them scrambling to find more food.
Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Food Banks, who has been working in food charities since the 1980s, said that when earlier economic downturns ended, food demand declined, but not this time.
From the AP article: Food Banks Struggle to Meet Surprising Demand
It’s an economic recovery so robust, food bank demand has increased every single year during it.
It’s an economic recovery so robust, people running food banks say they’ve never seen food bank demand increase during a recovering economy. Ever. Except this time.
It’s a fraud. The entire thing. This recovery has been a mainstream media meme used to cover up what is really happening: oligarch theft.
– Food shortage hits baby boomers as American economy falters – are you prepared? (Natural news, Aug 6, 2015):
Resources redistributed through the force of government are finite. They run out. Government social programs appear compassionate, assisting the poor and hungry, but these programs only work by force, taking from people who have already produced. This is how socialism works.
The philosophy of socialism views economic freedom as dangerous, leading to greed and concentrated wealth. Under the spell of socialist philosophy, the masses start to view people who earn their own way as evil. The socialist-enslaved masses will attack those who serve the marketplace with a great product or service and call them greedy. In this mindset, the masses cling to dependence and use the force of government to take from the productive so that wealth can be redistributed to them. This leads to all out slavery.

– Kellogg’s Slammed over High Levels of Probable Carcinogen in Cereal (Susatinabale Pulse, Aug 5, 2015):
GMO Free USA published Tuesday the results of independent lab tests documenting that a box of Kellogg’s Kashi GoLean Original cereal, which had not been verified by the Non-GMO Project, contained high levels of the World’s most used herbicide glyphosate residue and an even higher level of AMPA (aminomethylphosphonic acid), a metabolite of glyphosate.
Meanwhile, Kellogg also reported second-quarter revenue on Tuesday that revealed a 5.1 percent decline in sales, which was the seventh time in eight quarters that sales had fallen. Sales in the company’s U.S. snacks business, its biggest, fell 2 percent, while sales in the U.S. morning foods business, which includes cereals, fell 2.2 percent. Continue reading »

– Defying Voters’ Wishes, House Passes the DARK Act (ANH USA on
This dangerous, biotech-industry-friendly GMO labeling legislation is on its way to the Senate, but the fight is far from over. Action Alert!
As we reported last week, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) introduced a bill that has been championed by the Monsantos of the world, not to mention the Big Food industry. The deceptively titled “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015” would preempt state efforts to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws with a completely voluntary standard. It would also block communities and states from banning the cultivation of GMO crops.
A voluntary standard? What company that uses GMO ingredients would voluntarily disclose that fact? You may remember the devastating quote from an employee of a Monsanto subsidiary back in ’94: “If you put a label on genetically engineered food, you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.” In other words, if it’s voluntary, consumers will never see a label containing the information they have overwhelmingly said they want. That’s why pro-labeling advocates have called the bill the “DARK” (“Deny Americans the Right to Know”) Act. Continue reading »
– These are the U.S. Representatives who voted to ban GMO labeling and deny your right to know what you’re eating (Natural News, July 23, 2015):
“We should not raise prices on consumers based on the wishes of a handful of activists,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.), who just became consumer enemy number one after he decided to author a bill that destroys any chance Americans have of knowing what’s in their food, specifically whether or not they contain genetically modified ingredients, or GMOs.
What Pompeo isn’t telling you, and in fact is deliberately covering up, is that Americans overwhelmingly support GMO labeling (we’re talking in the 90th percentile); you can view proof of that support here, here and here. Continue reading »
Jack Wolfson, … interesting name.
As a side note: The paleo diet is highly … NOT … recommended.
– Anti-vaccine witch hunt FAIL: Dr. Jack Wolfson cleared of all charges for exercising his free speech rights on the issue of vaccine risks and the stupidity of blind medical obedience (Natural News, July 21, 2015):
After Arizona cardiologist Dr. Jack Wolfson spoke out about the potential dangers of vaccines following the contrived Disneyland measles outbreak, he was aggressively attacked by the vaccine medical-industrial complex, which routinely accuses anyone who questions the party line on vaccines as being a danger to society.
Organized by vaccine industry trolls and paid negative PR operatives, a total of 38 complaints were filed against Dr. Jack Wolfson with the Arizona state medical board. This is all part of the effort of the vaccine industry to destroy the credibility of any person who exercises true scientific, rational thought on the issue of risks versus rewards for vaccine interventions in children and adults. The idea here is that if enough punishment and aggression is directed against some doctors who speak out on the issue of vaccine side effects, then all the other doctors who may be witnessing these damaging effects of vaccines will decide to stay silent.
Dr. Wolfson was smeared by the mainstream media while receiving death threats from vaccine trolls Continue reading »
