In Reply to Doc Blake's post copied below the WJB reply:

Doc Blake:

Just so you don't get played as was intended by the government boys, the illusion spoon fed us that you parroted below: "We have a rubber stamp government, run by large corporations" Well, it was that way in the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, and going into the 60's. But a big transition took place going into the beginning of the 50's to the end of the 60's that culminated by the mid 90's and was absolute come 2000.

The corporations, banks, insurance, and brokerage companies from the 30's to 60's were constantly seeking government funds and investment capital. They thought they could influence the same. They got it each year at an ever increasing rate. That old saying of: "Walk into my pallor said the spider to the fly" doomed those companies to takeover by the eager hand of government.

Come the 70's "collective" local and federal government was well on its way to taking over controlling interest in those companies by direct investment and cash funding to the same. Little by little bit collective government would invest each year on average 3% to 5% of their gross income. On a good year 7% to 8%. One of my favorite expressions when it comes down to government's investments for takeover is: "there are only so many nickles to a dollar".

Come the 90's "collective" local and federal government owned the majority of those companies by investment, and was calling the shots as the "primary investor". They called the shots and those holdings were being networked via  "private' associations covertly established by the government players themselves. Private associations like GFOA.org, GASB.org, council of Mayors - State Managers - Governors - etc. And let's not forget two of the largest private associations: The Democratic and Republican parties. ( Americans forget Canada but all this goes on in our city councils, provinces and federal criminal groups Tami)

The comprehension or even a cognitive thought generated in the public per the reality of the obvious nature of what was taking place in their face and right under their noses was diligently held back from them through massive efforts applied in all relevant communication mediums that were covertly taken over DUE TO THE MONEY and wealth ever growing involved. The public never comprehended the scope and size of the government takeover.

The distractions, misdirections, and irrelevant promotions the public was constantly spoon fed to maintain and create a void as to the obvious was masterfully played out each and every day. For the last 10-years I have wanted to write a book entitled; "The decades of masterful entertainment applied - The road to Government takeover and ruin"

In the 80's and 90's collective US Government doing so well on the domestic front turned their focus on international takeover starting with Mexico in the 80's, moving on to India and the Soviet block countries in the 90's, and as of 2000 the big cherry to pick, China.

To pull this off it was required to keep the population delusional and misdirected to virtually the opposite thinking over the reality of the situation taking place and they pulled it off due to the massive wealth involved. The population parrots almost exactly what they are directed to parrot contrary to the basic glaring them right in the face reality of:

1. Government's increase in their gross income each and every year (almost a 3000% increase on average in 35 years)

2. Collective Governments increase in their domestic "and" International investment holdings (collectively now the primary owner of any relevant large corporation, mortgage, loans, debt instruments and totaling in value as a conservative estimate 110 trillion domestically plus another 45 trillion internationally)

3. Why do these large corporations seem to get a pass-card and policy set to do as they wish reaping in massive profits when in some case those profits generated are seriously in conflict with or in direct conflict with the public's interest and well being? The answer there is realized with another question and answer:

How do you get the full cooperation of government? ANSWER: Give government the largest percentage of the take. (Bank policy; trade policy; market regulatory policy; Insurance / mortgage / loan policy over the last several decades was designed to benefit primarily the largest controlling investor - collective local and federal government)

TREASON: "Treason doth never prosper; what's the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Sir John Harrington, 1561-1612

17 of The Most Underrated Medicinal Plants In The World

wakeup-world.com/2014/09/14/17-of-the-most-underrated-medicinal-plants-in-the-world/

14th September 2014

By Mae Chan

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Many people are finally becoming acquainted with how effective plants such as cannabis are medicinally. Others are very familiar with the healing abilities of garlic, spinach, ginger and of course echinacea. However, there are so many other plants whose medicinal potential are rarely if ever mentioned and yet rival and even exceed those mentioned above in many areas.

Medicinal plants contain a wide array of chemical compounds. They have a distinct order to their perfection. Natural selection pressures push these plants to “try out” variations on molecules to enhance the plant’s odds of surviving stressful environments. So, often, one molecule is present in the greatest amount and has the most dramatic effect in a human body — but along with it are variations of that molecule in the same plant. Human beings and plants have co-evolved for millions of years, so it makes perfect sense that our complex bodies would be adapted to absorb needed, beneficial compounds from many varieties of complex plants and ignore the rest. However, no plant should be ignored when it comes to advancing human health.

17 Underrated Medicinal Plants

1. Dandelion

They’re edible flowering plants which widely grow in South America. Dandelions are used to make recipes and drinks. Flowers, leafs and roots of dandelion are used to make food items for medicinal purposes. The act as a cleaning tonic for blood vessels while effectively increasing the functionality of the liver. They balance blood sugar and cholesterol levels. They also prevent gallstones and improve the functioning of the pancreas.

2. California Poppy

The brilliant blooms of the poppy make this opioid plant an iconic one. The plant is an effective nervine (anxiety reliever) and is safe for use on agitated children. Can be made into a a tea for quick relief of nervousness and tension. A stronger decoction will offer pain relief. (A decoction is made by “stewing” all safe plant parts, including stems and roots if possible, in water for several hours and, ideally, soaking overnight.)

3. Marigold

Marigold is a flowering plant which grows in wide rage of soils. They are used to cook and add color to many summer dishes. This plant can also cure many skin problems and can effectively reduce skin blemishes. It’s one of the best choices for instant relief from fever. It can reduce swelling to any body parts within short periods. Marigold is also one of the best herbs for headaches and tooth aches. Its anti-inflammatory properties help cure allergies, prevent tumors and also optimize the growth of new blood vessels.

4. Tansy

If you’ve decided to backpack through Europe instead of the mountains of Mexico (but why?), you’ll want to know about a few helpful medicinal plants. Tansy is an old-world aster and remedy, used for flavoring beer and stews as well as repelling insects. Rubbing the leaves on the skin provides an effective bug repellent, but tansy can also be used to treat worms. It is said to be poisonous when extracted, but a few leaves are not harmful if ingested.

5. Lady Ferns

Lady ferns are long light green plants native to the northern hemisphere and one of the oldest plants on Earth. They also heal a number of diseases in naturally. It is a recommended herb for fevers and coughs, prevention against worms and defending against asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis. They are also effective for cuts and sunburns.

6. Alfalfa

Alfalfa is fodder for livestock for a reason: it’s incredibly rich in minerals and health-promoting nutrients and compounds. With roots that grow 20 to 30 feet deep, alfalfa is considered the “father of all plants”. (It also contains a high amount of protein for a green.) Alfalfa originally grew in the Mediterranean and Middle East but has now spread to most of Europe and the Americans. It can treat morning sickness, nausea, kidney stones, kidney pain and urinary discomfort. It is a powerful diuretic and has a bit of stimulant power, helping to energize after a bout with illness. It’s a liver and bowel cleanser and long-term can help reduce cholesterol. You can purchase seeds and sprouts, but it’s fine to eat the leaves straight from the earth.

7. Tea Tree

Tea-tree is one of the most powerful plants effective against dangerous bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. It effectively prevents insects and can cure insects bites almost instantly. Tea tree oil is one of the best solutions to keep fungus at bay and also prevent against head lice. It gives quick relief from cuts and burns and also is one of the fastest ways to remove dandruff. Tea tree also effective for headaches and colds.

8. Catnip

Catnip is the cannabis of the cat kingdom! Famous for making cats deliriously crazy, catnip has health properties that are great for humans, too. Catnip can relieve cold symptoms (helpful if you’re on a camping trip and don’t have access to Nyquil). It’s useful in breaking a fever as it promotes sweating. Catnip also helps stop excessive bleeding and swelling when applied rather than ingested. This mint plant (yep, another one) is also reportedly helpful in treating gas, stomach aches, and migraines. Catnip can stimulate uterine contractions, so it should not be consumed by pregnant women. It grows in the Northern Hemisphere.

9. Thyme

Thyme is widely used as an aromatic plant, as well as an edible one. It effectively prevents small insects and provides many many health benefits mainly for lung problems such as shortness in breath. It provides better prevention against foodborne bacterial infections than any medication and keeps blood pressure level. It reduces the risk of colon cancer and is also a remedy for skin problems such as dryness, redness and swelling. It acts as a relaxing herb by calming down the nervous system.

10. Sage

Sage is an incredibly useful herb, widely considered to be perhaps the most valuable herb. It is anti-flammatory, anti-oxidant, and antifungal. In fact, according to a noted resource World’s Healthiest Foods, “Its reputation as a panacea is even represented in its scientific name,Salvia officinalis, derived from the Latin word, salvere, which means ‘to be saved’.” It was used as a preservative for meat before the advent of refrigeration (eminently useful: you never know when you’ll be forced to hunt in the wild). Sage aids digestion, relieves cramps, reduces diarrhea, dries up phlegm, fights colds, reduces inflammation and swelling, acts as a salve for cuts and burns, and kills bacteria. Sage apparently even brings color back to gray hair… a definite concern when lost in the woods

11. Brucea Javanica

Beyond limited empirical observations, not all medicinal plants have established scientific studies to support their effectiveness. However, in the case of Brucea javanica, it is one of those plants in which scientific investigations have provided enough evidence to prove that it has an impressive efficacy for the treatment of cervical, bladder and pancreatic cancers. Its selective toxicity has also been found to kill 70% of breast cancer cells. Brucea javanica (Brucea javanica (L.) Merr) is one of those plants that needs far more recognition in this category for its incredible ability to selectively kill cancer cells.

12. Navajo Tea

Also called greenthread, Plains Tea or Coyote Plant, this plant has been used for centuries by Native Americans to quickly relieve that most brutal and irritating of infections: the UTI (urinary tract infection). Best when made into a tea or decoction.

13. Red Clover

Native to Europe, Northern Africa and Western Asia, red clover is now ubiquitous worldwide. The plant’s reddish pink blossoms can be used for coughs and colds, but they are an excellent detoxifier and blood cleanser as well.

Mgr Spam Issues, RV & Harper Treason! Sept 12/14

Dear Friends, the RV announcement is scheduled for today or tomorrow for many countries are now Revaluing their currencies in the Middle East Egypt, Iraq, Greece, Indonesia, Vietnam with others soon to follow. After that I will be able to soon give bank information under Basel 3 Nesara provisions so keep tuned in. Our prosperity is very near! Arrests are ongoing! Trade deals will be voided under Nesara and common law. Any further delays by USA & Iraq can cause major legal & Restitution issues.

I have mentioned many times over the years that anyone who spams me via my website or any other address without my permission will be put on a charges list that will be followed up. I will not do business with people who think that emailing me into my paypal account or personal accounts without my permission is the way to do business is greatly misguided. If you email me asking permission with proper introduction and information then perhaps I will consider emailing back with the understanding that any of my email addresses are not for marketing purposes. We do not want to deal with unethical emotionally immature people who do not demonstrate common courtesy and respect.  Our staff will work with like minded mature co-creators under our project categories only.

Harper treasonous trade agreements will get him arrested and charged with treason to think that we Canadians would really stand for his illegal thinking and actions against our sovereignty and human rights. Plus we need to change our ineffectual parliamentary system that allow MLA to speak out about wrong illegal issues within our government but are impotent to do anything about it while sucking up our tax dollars and elitists benefit package. While other groups try to benefit financially from this criminality battle! See below:

Dear Tami,

Breaking news from Ottawa: We’ve just heard that Prime Minister Harper could be about to ratify the secretive and extreme Canada-China FIPA investors deal in the next few hours.[1]

This deal would allow China’s massive companies to sue Canadian governments in secret tribunals if we make decisions that put Canadian interests ahead of their corporate profits – restricting Canadians from making democratic decisions about our economy, environment and energy.[2]

It gets worse: If Prime Minister Harper approves this international investors’ deal it could bind us for 31 years.

As you may know, the Hupacasath First Nation are using their constitutionally protected legal rights to challenge this deal in court. The court case is still in progress, and the court has not yet released its decision on the Hupacasath’s appeal. If Harper ratifies FIPA it would show total disrespect for Canada's courts and the the judicial process.

We know that many Conservative MPs are deeply uncomfortable with the secretive and extreme Canada-China investor deal,[3] and we need to turn up the pressure right now and demand they stop Harper from ratifying this terrible deal.

Can you join our emergency phone-call action today to turn up the pressure to stop FIPA? Here’s how to make your call…

Emergency Phone Call Action to Stop FIPA

Manitoba Wisely Rejects Smart Meters & Lawsuits! & GMO’s Banned!

Classaction Lawsuits for small business and individuals go to: www.stopsmartmetersbc.ca or linda@citizensforsafetechnology.org. to get involved Tami

Subject: update 2014-09-08 Manitoba halting plans for $meters
Date: Tue, 9 Sep 2014 06:04:30 -0700

1)   Manitoba not proceeding with smeter program, concerned about various issues, including fires.

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/no-plans-yet-for-wider-use-of-digital-smart-power-meters-274296661.html?cx_navSource=d-tiles-3

2)   In Australia the costs projected for the smeter program are being questioned. Has anyone asked why BC Hydro paid more for the ITRON meter and the program than any other place – as much as 2-3 times what other places have paid?? Could it be because the government refused to allow oversight? Could that be why the government refused oversight?

http://wilalternat.blogspot.ca/2014/09/power-companies-overstate-cost-of-smart.html

3)   The issue of privacy is paramount with many of us – but the grid has no guarantee that the data gathered from our homes will not be used. Instead, the possibility of sharing data is very great. In the UK sharing the grid (the collectors have 8 transmitters, already very convenient for users in addition to Hydro) is being considered, and they are wondering “who will own the data?”  It seems it won’t be the individuals.

http://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/how-software-could-save-big-money-on-the-uk-grid

4)   In Florida, as in BC, the utilities are acting like out of control bullies, charging for services not rendered, charging extortion fees, turning off power. Only when the media got involved did anything help one 88 year old with medical problems.  Where is our media??

http://drrichswier.com/2014/09/08/fpls-smart-meter-woes-billing-services-performed-threatening-shut-offs-disabled-veterans/

5)   A member received confirmation in writing that we are being discriminated against, especially those on equal payment plans.  The BCUC made BC Hydro reduce (not eliminate) fees when the meters weren’t read as they are supposed to be, every second month. But those on equal payments will not have their legacy fees reduced and neither will their meters be read regularly.

I wrote to Jim Nicholson, Director of Customer Care regarding lack of clarity in Hydro bills. Daren Sanders, Senior Manager, Customer Service Operations responded. Mr. Sanders sent me a detailed, 13-page response, detailing months of hydro charges. He highlighted all the legacy meter charges. I was $227.00 in arrears, waiting for the meter reading charges to be clarified. Since Dec 2013, the meter readings alone have cost me $240.43. (Not paid to date.)

Summary of his response: My meter is scheduled to be read every two months, and I have to pay $32.40 every time it's read. On the months not read, there is also a charge. (Not specified.)
If I go on the equal payment plan, the meter reading charges will remain the same because my analog meter has been scheduled to be read every two months. (This, in spite of the fact that when I was on equal payment, they rarely read my meter.)

With the response came a second letter - a Disconnection Notice re: $227.00. It warned me that "a reconnection charge of up to $355 may apply".
Hydro has charged me $64.80 per two-month period, on three occasions to date: Jan - Mar, Mar - May, May - July. However Dec 2, 2013 - Jan 10,2014, the fee was $46.03.

I plan to write yet another letter requesting clarification

Letters:

Dangers to Health & Safety via Smart Meters! Aug 25/14

Smart meters creating Insomnia & Type 2 Diabetes in people close to smart meter panels!

Wonder why so many people these days (perhaps you) are foggy-brained, have ear-ringing, can't sleep, numbed out, and on and on...? Science is increasingly pointing to the probable culprit: LOW-LEVEL, PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION - exactly what 'smart' meters emit. From this new paper, actually lauding the supposed benefits of disrupting the blood-brain barrier with electromagnetic pulses:
"The lowest energy condition, 300 bursts consisting of 850 ns bipolar pulses, resulted in significant BBB disruption (0.51 cm3), without displaying necrotic or apoptotic damage to neurological tissue."

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/08/140812122417.htm

Dirty electricity is caused by harmonics on the home wiring – like those caused by $meters. Dr. Magda Havas has shown that DE elevates blood sugar among those who are electrically sensitive causing a type of diabetes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18568931

Article in The Province about $$meter fires.

I hope you will comment. Why are the lies continuing?  Note how Hydro’s first response when asked about Luc de Beir’s fire was to lie, saying it was an analog meter. If Mr. de Beir had not stepped forward, saying he knew it was a smeter, and had a photo to prove it, my guess is they would have continued with that lie.

It’s time for the NDP to take this up as did the NDP in Sask. and ask why this being allowed to continue. Demand a full investigation into the process from start to finish. I’ve asked for one in my letter below.

http://www.theprovince.com/news/Hydro+playing+smoke+mirrors+over+smart+meter+fires/10141442/story.html

2)   In Sask. an investigation into the entire $$meter program. Hopefully it will be completely independent, open and honest.

http://www.grenfellsun.sk.ca/News/2014-08-24/article-3846340/CIC-announces-review-of-Smart-Meter-Program/1

3)   Getting, using and selling our data is big business. This is one reason for the $meter. More of our data for Hydro to use and mis-use.

Subject: update 2014-09-12 Results of survey reporting health effects due to $meters
Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2014 23:41:34 -0700

1)   A survey regarding health effects of $$meters. A lot of very interesting information about symptoms suffered from exposure to $meters

http://www.mainecoalitiontostopsmartmeters.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Exhibit-10-Smart-Meter-Health-Effects-Report-Survey2.pdf

2)   More on the lack of cost-benefits from the UK. And these considerations do not look at the health and safety issues and the costs associated with the consequences.

http://www.metering.com/smart-meters-uk-gov-report-deals-a-heavy-blow-to-rollout /

3) There is some controversy surrounding the person involved, but people need to be aware that if your electricity is turned off, any generator that is used must be used with great caution. Keep it outside, far away from any open windows or doors.

http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2014/08/salina_house_where_child_died_didnt_have_power_for_more_than_a_week.html

4)   Question from a member re. “net metering”. This member has been told that Hydro will allow “net metering”, where someone with solar panels gets credit for surplus electricity that is fed back into the system, only if there is a $$meter. I have read (I hope I understood it)  that analogs can be “fed” electricity and they will run backwards, but of course Hydro would not allow this. Recently someone told me that Hydro has failed to credit his “net metering” ever since he got a $meter.  Could people please share their experiences and ideas concerning this? Please email me at director@stopsmartmetersbc.ca with “net metering” on the subject line.

5)   Cowichan Valley aiming to free itself from BC Hydro’s choke hold.  Re. Solar Panels.

6)   “Take Back Your Power” will be shown on Colorado’s PBS this weekend. It is available to various TV stations, and this would enable many people to learn about the dangers of and problems associated with $meters.

Date: Thu, Sep 11, 2014 at 3:25 PM

Subject: FW: Paying legacy fees that equal electricity used

Dear_____________________,

Thank you for your email. There’s lots of examples of the work the NDP Opposition done on smart meters when John Horgan was critic and tons of links to news releases and Hansard demonstrating that our caucus was speaking out about smart meters from the time they were first announced.

News Release: B.C. Liberals directing independent power regulator to rubber stamp smart meter fees http://bit.ly/1r3bc9

We strongly believe that the program should have been subjected to an independent review by the BCUC. Most recently, John Horgan spoke out in the Legislature in the DEBATES OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY, (HANSARD),  WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014, which fell on deaf Liberal ears:

http://www.leg.bc.ca/hansard/40th2nd/20140514pm-CommitteeA-Blues.htm

If you feel that a mistake has been made on your utility bill, and you fill in the attached Consent to Obtain Personal Information, I can send it in to BC Hydro for review.

Yours truly,

LEONARD KROG, MLA

NANAIMO

pdf attached - complaint form for billing complaints to bc hydro

Sent: September 11, 2014 9:35 AM

Dear John Horgan,

cc: Leonard Krog

I am a 25 year customer of BC Hydro, earning less than $10k a year as a music teacher and living in a house under 700 square feet.

This past July/August BC Hydro billing period I was able to get our two-person house's bill down to $60 for 60 days (used minimal electricity to produce lowest bill of the year).

The bill from Hydro arrived yesterday totalling $125.

$60 of that is for power used

Another $60 is for "legacy meter fee."

So now I am paying $1 a day for the smallest use of electricity possible for two people in an all-electric house, and another $1 a day for the legacy meter fee.

Does this strike you as ironic?

I am paying more to STOP the utility-monopoly from placing an "energy saving device" on my house, at this point in the year, then I am for their electricity.

What's wrong with this picture?

I summarize my arguments below.

Please hand this to Mr. John Horgan, please!

Any sane individual will see that this so called "smart" program has gone far enough.

Why am I against so called "smart" meters?

- residential electricity is only 30% of all used in BC

- don't need meters on every house, just one for whole neighbourhood or substation and main-lines.

- this smartmetering is not required to go "green" since there is no fossil-fuel backup generators in the system (we have controllable water dams in BC)

- our province has more than enough elecricity (no shortages, no extra generator backup required)

- there was no independent oversight over the program and it is run as a monopoly

- invades privacy extremely; no consumer protection. B.C. Privacy commissioner found 14 violations; none have been corrected.

- creates expensive electricity; the less used, the higher the price that is set.That is the purpose of TOU billing. Determine the high points and charge more for them.

- instigated without oversight or business plan; no consumer input or understanding.

- no cost savings to customers (see UK panel's 2% or $30 a year savings but only if customer understands and is able to lower their

use.)

- no explanation for 15 minute readings and constant radio-mesh-network always ON

- no energy savings information given to customers except suggestions of clothes-lines for drying laundry and shutting off power vampires/turning off lights/changing to LED bulbs etc.

- no safety checks on whole system (no longterm pilots)

- customers are actually the utility's owners (crown corporation) and yet are unable to stop expensive and possibly dangerous program

- especially injurious to the poor - cannot change their tiny usuage, but must pay more for it

- could imperil those with health problems (meters broadcast wifi too near to home-bound patients)

- creates a wifi intensity in neighbourhoods that could injure devloping fetuses or small children

- can cause house fires

- zero proof that it does what it claims to do (Not "green") ie:

outages/grow-ops/rip-off-artists/tampering - no proof that smeter solve these.

- short lifespan; software outdated quickly, ends up in the garbage (analogs can last 30-50 years and are mechanically refurbishable)

- could be used by security services or police/homeland-security US to locate persons of interest (wifi area-locaters on every home and gridding all homes)

- could be hacked

- could be used as a weapon (hackers could increase wifi waves to harmful levels or shut off whole areas from power.)

- could be nefarious in general (not what it purports to be but a surveillance device or house control device)

- no proof that it is safe, effective, or a good idea. NONE.

- forced on people despite their stating they don't want it

- "deployed" by semi-trained workers, many of whom were too fast, too sneaky and/or aggressive

- extortion fees demanded of those who refused to have one.

- mainstream media being manipulated not to expose problems.

 

What's good about the smart program again?

Oh yes: Being able to read a graph of your electricity usage online.

But, you could do that with other apps that can be made fully private and firewalled against intrustion, and do not bathe home in wifi signals from all other homes in a meshed network.

Hopefully any intelligent person can see the problems here

Thank you for stopping smart meters.

Mexico & Oregon Ban GMO Crops! Sept 12/14

Mexico's judge turns Monsanto's dream into nightmare

Mexico's judge turns Monsanto's dream into nightmare
Sep 04, 2014

Last year I was told that Microsoft's Bill Gates and Carlos Slim went to Mexico with $20 million in hand to bribe Mexico's lawmakers into allowing Monsanto to bring GMO seeds to Mexico. Then the president of Mexico discovered that a major university in Mexico had been developing a much better way to feed the world with old-world seeds, including corn that would produce up to 13 ears of corn per stalk. (Normal production is just 2 ears.)

I have seen the pictures of this super-corn having 10 ears on one stalk. DNA tests show that under the right conditions, God created it to produce up to 13 ears of corn. They are using frequency technology to energize the water and seeds so that it will outproduce anything on earth today. The University plans to make Mexico the breadbasket of the world--that is, unless the GMO's spoil the environment and the big seed companies succeed in their plan to take control of the world's food supply.

By the way, 44 of the top experts on corn seeds are in Mexico and are grads from this university. None of them want GMO seed corn in their country.

It was reported to me by a faculty member of this same major university that after the distribution of the bribe money, the Mexican president could not stop the lawmakers from passing the law to allow GMO's, but he instructed his good friend, the judge, to block the law on constitutional grounds. Monsanto now has to conduct years of tests to prove that it's GMO's are safe to the environment. It is doubtful that they will be able to prove this.

That is the story as I heard it from my faculty friend from the agricultural department of the university.

It appears that the following news article is about this situation.

The latest country to put a spanner in the works is Mexico. This past week the country’s Federal Court voted to uphold Judge Marroquín Zaleta’s 2013 ruling to suspend the granting of licenses for GMO field trials sought by Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow, Pionner-Dupont and Mexico’s SEMARNAT (Environment and Natural Resources Ministry). Zaleta’s ruling was in response to a suit brought by a collective of 53 scientists and 22 civil rights organizations and NGOs.

In defending his ruling, Zaleta cited the potential risks to the environment posed by GMO corn. If the biotech industry got its way, he argued, more than 7000 years of indigenous maize cultivation in Mexico would be endangered, with the country’s 60 varieties of corn directly threatened by cross-pollination from transgenic strands. Monsanto’s response was as swift as it was brutal: not only did it – and its lackeys in the Mexican government – appeal Zaleta’s ruling, it also demanded his removal from the bench on the grounds that he had already stated his opinion on the case before sentencing.

However, Monsanto’s bullying tactics failed to impress the Mexican judges. On August 15, the court convened to review Zaleta’s alleged bias ruled against the U.S. corporation’s legal suit. Also spurned by the Mexican courts was the world’s third largest GMO seed manufacturer, Syngenta, whose reapplication for a license to run test trials of its maize crops was rejected this week by the Federal Court.

5 Million Farmers Sue Monsanto for $7.7 Billion

Launching a lawsuit against the very company that is responsible for a farmer suicide every 30 minutes, 5 million farmers are now suing Monsanto for as much as 6.2 billion euros (around 7.7 billion US dollars). The reason? As with many other cases, such as the ones that led certain farming regions to be known as the ‘suicide belt’, Monsanto has been reportedly taxing the farmers to financial shambles with ridiculous royalty charges. The farmers state that Monsanto has been unfairly gathering exorbitant profits each year on a global scale from “renewal” seed harvests, which are crops planted using seed from the previous year’s harvest.

The practice of using renewal seeds dates back to ancient times, but Monsanto seeks to collect massive royalties and put an end to the practice. Why? Because Monsanto owns the very patent to the genetically modified seed, and is charging the farmers not only for the original crops, but the later harvests as well. Eventually, the royalties compound and many farmers begin to struggle with even keeping their farm afloat. It is for this reason that India slammed Monsanto with groundbreaking  ‘bio-piracy’ charges  in an effort to stop Monsanto from ‘patenting life’.

Oregon Counties Ban GMO Crops

Residents of two rural farming communities in Oregon voted to ban GMO crops this week despite the corporate cash pouring into the opposing campaign.  The ban mandates removal or destruction of all GMO plants within a year. A statewide law on seed regulation came into effect after Jackson County’s proposal qualified for the ballot. Because Josephine County’s proposal came after the state law was passed, it will likely be contested in court.

Awesome: Oregon Aims to Be First State to Map GMO Fields

More Good News ref: GMO Bans Worldwide and several other political wins for the people:

After reading this article, you just may be willing to move to Oregon – the state that just keeps getting better and better. Residents in southern Oregon already voted compellingly to ban genetically modified crops just last month, and now the state plans to map out all GMO fields within its borders to help mitigate the damage of cross-pollination.
