- Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most
dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout
was to our economy, only we can live without money.
- "If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public's
right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every
food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against
the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products
of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law
or, if you like, the will of God." --Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada
- It is similar to what India faced with imposition of
the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food
in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.
- Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would
not benefit from it, but Monsanto's Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and
unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed
and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved
by Congress) to administer the agency it would create
- without judicial review if it passes. S 510 would give
Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming.
- In the 1990s, Bill Clinton introduced HACCP (Hazardous
Analysis Critical Control Points) purportedly to deal with contamination
in the meat industry. Clinton's HACCP delighted the offending corporate
(World Trade Organization "WTO") meat packers since it allowed
them to inspect themselves, eliminated thousands of local food processors
(with no history of contamination), and centralized meat into their control.
- In 2008, Hillary Clinton, urged a powerful centralized
food safety agency as part of her campaign for president. Her advisor was
http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=8595 Mark Penn,
CEO of Burson Marsteller*, a giant PR firm http://www.corporatewatch.org/?lid=395/strong/font/pp
representing Monsanto. Clinton lost, but Clinton friends such as Rosa
DeLauro, whose husband's firm http://www.greenbergresearch.com/index.php?ID=109
lists Monsanto as a progressive client and globalization as an area
of expertise, introduced early versions of S 510.
- S 510 fails on moral, social, economic, political, constitutional,
and human survival grounds.some call it "common sense" - you
heard of it ?
- 1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland
Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or
an ill-defined emergency. It resembles the Kissinger Plan. http://www.schillerinstitute.org/food_for_peace/kiss_nssm_jb_1995.html
- 2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply
by insisting on http://yupfarming.blogspot.com/2009/05/food-safety-bills-more-dangerous-than_08.html
compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security. It would
end the Uruguay Round Agreement Act of 1994, which put US sovereignty and
US law under http://www.eastlaw.net/research/wto/wto2b.htm perfect protection.
- Instead, S 510 says:
- COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS.
- Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act)
shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing
the World Trade Organization or any other treaty or international agreement
to which the United States is a party.
- 3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law,
to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales
between individuals) as smuggling into "the United States." Since
under that law, the US is a corporate entity and not a location, "entry
of food into the US" covers food produced anywhere within the land
mass of this country and "entering into" it by virtue of being
- 4. It imposes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWRxT_6L_pA
- Alimentarius on the US, a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2D4-noTiCg
global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN),
World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO),
and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to
natural food supplements. Its bizarre history http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/PHARMACEUTICAL_BUSINESS/history_of_the_pharmaceutical_industry.htm
and its expected impact http://www.ceri.com/ed-rath.htm in limiting
access to adequate nutrition http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/PHARMACEUTICAL_BUSINESS/laws_of_the_pharmaceutical_industry.htm
(while mandating GM food, GM animals, pesticides, hormones, irradiation
of food, etc.) threatens all safe and organic food http://coto2.wordpress.com/2010/02/03/codex-alimentarius-cohorts-wage-war-against-food/
and health itself, since the world knows now it needs vitamins to survive,
not just to treat illnesses. http://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-9343%2809%2900440-9/fulltext
- 5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus
own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and
other multinationals, threatening US security. See <http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/2009/06/13/seeds-how-to-criminalize-them/>Seeds
How to criminalize them, for more details.
- 6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that
threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals. The UN is participating
through the WHO, FAO, WTO, and World Organization for Animal Health (OIE)
in allowing mass slaughter of even heritage breeds of animals and without
proof of disease. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/africa/article6193785.ece
Biodiversity in farm animals is being wiped out to http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=1333
substitute genetically engineered animals on which corporations hold patents.
Animal diseases can be falsely declared. S 510 includes the Centers for
Disease Control, despite its http://www.financialsense.com/editorials/engdahl/2009/1208.html
corrupt involvement in the http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=16667
H1N1 scandal, which is now said to have been concocted by the corporations.
- 7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food,
thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP
did to meat production put it in corporate hands and worsen food
- 8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy.
It takes agriculture and food, which are the cornerstone of all economies,
out of the hands of the citizenry, and puts them under the total control
of multinational corporations influencing the UN, WHO, FAO and WTO, with
HHS, and CDC, acting as agents, with Homeland Security as the enforcer.
The chance to rebuild the economy based on farming, ranching, gardens,
food production, natural health, and all the jobs, tools and connected
occupations would be eliminated.
- 9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics,
hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs. This would industrialize
every farm in the US, eliminate local organic farming, greatly increase
global warming from increased use of oil-based products and long-distance
delivery of foods, and make food even more unsafe. The five items listed
the http://shivchopra.com/?p=228 Five Pillars of Food Safety are precisely
the items in the food supply which are the primary source of its danger.
- 10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state
power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be
imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties
to be applied. It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all
citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with
unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review. It is (similar
to C-6 in Canada) the end of Rule of Law in the US. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7_0HlCwb8A
