S 510 includes, at a minimum:
- A hidden take over of all seed in the US – the end of the country’s control over its food and ensuring all GMOs – corporate owned crops;
- The use of DHS and DOD – animal disease or contamination as a pretext for martial law;
- The extermination of normal farm animals in case of an emergency (to replace with patented GE-animals and force GMO meat);
- The surreptitious arrangement for mandating of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, irradiation of all food and GMO farming;
- Deceitfully forcing the US under the WTO to end its sovereignty over its own economic policy, resources, energy, health, food;
- The theft of all US farmland via false “traceability” requirements which force farmers onto international contracts that remove their property rights;
- The removal of nutritional supplements because they are the proven superior treatments for cancer, diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis, heart disease, and are essential for preventing disease – ensuring greatly increased illnesses for corporate profit;
- A corporate court outside the judicial system over all Americans, with unlimited penalties and no recourse – ending democratic rights in the US.
Food safety is a corporate lie, and already comes with violence against those providing safe food.
Biotech, agribusiness and pharmaceutical corporations, though they have corrupted government and courts, rigged markets, bribed officials, made closed door arrangements that undo democratic processes, destroyed independent scientists, had independent had armed men go after researchers, and hired military thugs, appear to have tired of even the sham of democratic processes they hide behind, and now are seeking laws that would give them total power and remove the most basic constitutional rights.
In India, under the proposed Biotech Regulatory Authority of India, BRAI, they would imprison anyone questioning GMOs in food or vaccines or drugs.
S 510 is part of this international corporate assault on constitutional rights that stand between them and nations’ land and natural resources. In the proposed EU and Canadian trade agreement, the biotech industry wishes to merely allege a farmer has violated intellectual property rights and seize his land, equipment and freeze his bank accounts, making it impossible for him to defend himself. Through S 510, the industry wants to apply any penalty it chooses.
These corporate moves follow the outsourcing of manufacturing firms and jobs, an economic crash, the mortgage disaster, stolen billions in “bailouts”, and porous US borders in order to bring in cheap labor. The World Trade Organization has gone so far as to say that country of origin is obsolete, revealing their undemocratic vision of global governance by corporations.
And S 510 is in the service of that, meant to break down the last remaining, most essential industry in the US — food production. They will have globalized even food production and made the country depend on corporations for its very survival. If that can be accomplished, the sky’s the limit in terms of profit and political control.
This is consistent with totalitarian plans designed by Bush and others, “… the new frontier of colonialism in the 21st century – the total domination and exploitation of the earth and everything on it ….” The “biomasters” seek control over biodiversity itself now, and are buying control over governments and universities. What they have not patented, especially if it is valuable, they are trying to criminalize through extremes of inappropriate regulatory power, attempting now in the EU (again through “food safety”) to end people’s rights to even use nature, and in the US, attempting through S 510 to regulate the right to produce or obtain safe food or nutritional necessities.
The falsity of this, the use of emergencies, the use of disease and fear, parallel to what was done during 9/11 and with the swine flu pandemic, both originating under Bush, both using terror and corrupted government agencies, and each now exposed as false. See http://www.youtube.com/v/SpDmorM62qU
The corporate power grab depends to a great extent on confusion, augmented by fomenting hatred – of Muslims by conservatives, and of conservatives by liberals taught to believe conservatives are racist hate groups. Each has been trained by government and corporate media to see other people as fanatic enemies to distract from what the government/corporations are doing which threaten everyone in common.
This propagandizing shows up around vaccines as well, which is a major corporate investment and one associated with political control, for which Bush arranged immunity from liability for the companies, and “medical martial law” in each state with military force. The current H1N1 vaccines have caused high numbers of miscarriages, convulsions, narcolepsy, Guillaume Barre, Bell’s palsy and deaths, but corporate media is not covering that, the undoing of safeguards, the spoken threat to people’s lives from international financial interests, or the relation to Kissinger. See http://www.youtube.com/v/jtzs7yyEDUE
Instead, the government has suggested that those opposing vaccines are a threat to everyone else’s health – though, logically, if the vaccines worked, anyone not taking them would threaten no one.
Thanks to Bush, DHS has a peculiar list of suspected domestic terrorists – people pleading that vaccines are dangerous to their children, people who stand by Constitutional rights as “patriots,” people who do not believe the government’s version of 9/11, alternative media, anti-war activists, environmentalists, fundamentalists – that is, those people who holding to free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and the Bill of Rights to work to end wars and protect the earth from corporations. The defense of the second amendment – the right to bear arms – is one of the main means of portraying people as dangerous, even Gandhi supported the right to bear arms, saying that “Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.” Whereas, those in favor of the end of the 2nd amendment, open borders, the North American Union, mandatory vaccines, and other things which facilitate a corporate dismantling of the US or reduction in population, are not listed.
The man below founded a group which is high on the list of threats and has been demonized as a right wing hate group. This is understandable since everything they offer is not only a constitutional antidote to what Bush did to undermine rights here but offers protection of the American people from such dangers. For liberals led to fear this group by corporate media, hearing Mr. Rhodes for the first time is often a revelation and an indication of how successful the corporations have been in sowing confusion and hatred. See http://www.youtube.com/v/f2MJbw0o-B0.
Rhodes, who is the founder and director of Oath Keepers, was one among many military people who watched in horror at the unconstitutional way in which Bush and Cheney used military during Katrina, going into people’s homes without warrants, taking their weapons, closing in the city, not allowing in supplies, preventing people from leaving. He graduated from Yale Law School and was a Yale Scholar. His paper “Solving the Puzzle of Enemy Combatant Status” won Yale’s Miller prize for best paper on the Bill of Rights. He assisted teaching U.S. military history at Yale and is writing a book on the dangers of applying the laws of war to the American people. And is that not just what the ACLU, NLG and CCR are working to protect people from?
The American people at a crossroads, with corporations at the gate, ready to end the Constitution and take what they want here. Bush arranged many means to accomplish that – Presidential orders that permanently suspend the Constitution and take over all resources, utilities, farms, food, transportation, communication, human labor, etc.; FEMA camps; forced untested, unknown vaccines that can harm; state laws that can force vaccines and any other unknown medical test or treatment; and laws such as S 510 that opens the door to global corporate sovereignty over policy and a corporate court over all individuals. Is it any wonder they want to turn off the internet?
Those involved have a history of using confusion and hatred to undermine countries. But Americans are incredibly good people. Are they able to remember that? Do they know that it wasn’t lone right-wing fanatics who killed presidents or peace leaders, but the government? Are they able to take in that it was not foreigners who attacked the country? Given how much the corporations have stoked fear of anyone different from us, are Americans able to override that propaganda and stop hating Muslims and each other, and focus on the true danger – the corporate state? Are they able to stay steady around constitutional principles and not be misled if there were a false attack on the country which veteran intelligence officers are warning might happen?
Corporations are at a dead end. No one wants to spend billions more on research for patented drugs that will never cure (an end of profits) but often kill, people are seeing through vaccines to their affects and history, no one wants pesticides, GMOs and industrial agriculture, or nuclear or coal power, or wars, or more taxes to fund any of that.
People want local organic farming, gardening and good food, alternative energy, already proven cures for diseases, local communities, their inalienable rights and peace. All those good things are capable of swamping what is evil in the world (despite its financial backing and corrupt power) but it will depend on not hating each other and courage. Gandhi, King and Mandela succeeded by not hating, not even those in power, and by bringing normally estranged communities together. They defeated hatred to defeat power. Their moral grounding was the force that accomplished that and it could not be stopped.
S 510 brings everyone together. All farm-loving, food-loving, health-loving, animal-loving, seed-loving, rights-loving, freedom-loving, country-loving people have reason to stop that bill and any other form they may attempt to disguise it in (such as an end of the year omnibus bill).
Senators must be warned (by certified mail, if necessary) that S 510 is not a normal bill, but a bill to give corporations total control of the US. It is treason. They must keep their own sworn oaths to the Constitution and stop it.
