Monsanto’s Dark History


MONSANTO CHEMICAL COMPANY AT NITRO ON THE KANA...

 

By EcoWatch

06 April 13

rom its beginnings as a small chemical company in 1901, Monsanto has grown into the largest biotechnology seed company in the world with net sales of $11.8 billion, 404 facilities in 66 countries across six continents and products grown on more than 282 million acres worldwide. Today, the consumer advocacy nonprofit Food & Water Watch released its report, Monsanto: A Corporate Profile.

“There is a growing movement of people around the country who want to take on Monsanto’s undue influence over lawmakers, regulators and the food supply,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch and author of the book Foodopoly. “People need to know about Monsanto’s history as a heavy industrial chemical manufacturer; a reality at odds with the environmentally friendly, feed-the-world image that the company spends millions trying to convey.”

“At the end of March, the American public saw first hand the unjustifiable power that Monsanto holds over our elected officials when an unprecedented rider, dubbed the ‘Monsanto Protection Act,’ was tacked onto the spending bill to fund the federal government,” said Dave Murphy, founder and executive director of Food Democracy Now! “This is an outrageous interference with our courts and separation of powers and we cannot sit back and allow our elected officials to continue to take orders from Monsanto at the expense of family farmers and consumers.”

The report offers a timeline of milestones in the company’s history including chemical disasters, mergers and acquisitions, and the first genetically modified plant cell.

“Despite its various marketing incarnations over the years, Monsanto is a chemical company that got its start selling saccharin to Coca-Cola, then Agent Orange to the U.S. military, and, in recent years, seeds genetically engineered to contain and withstand massive amounts of Monsanto herbicides and pesticides,” said Ronnie Cummins, executive director of Organic Consumers Association. “Monsanto has become synonymous with the corporatization and industrialization of our food supply.”

The report concludes with recommended actions for the federal government to take to temper Monsanto’s anti-competitive practices and control over agricultural research and government policies. It also suggests steps that regulators should take to better protect consumers and the environment from the potentially harmful effects of genetically engineered (GE) crops.

“Even though you won’t find the Monsanto brand on a food or beverage container at your local grocery store, the company holds vast power over our food supply,” said Rebecca Spector, west coast director of Center for Food Safety. “This power is largely responsible for something else we cannot find on our grocery store shelves-labels on genetically engineered food. Not only has Monsanto’s and other agribusinesses’ efforts prevented the labeling of GE foods, but they spend millions to block grassroots efforts like California’s Prop 37 in order to keep consumers in the dark.”

“The chemical pesticide industry, with Monsanto leading the way, took over U.S. seed industry and engineered bacterial genes into food crops with the primary purpose of selling more weed killer that contaminates our food, water and bodies,” said David Bronner, the CEO of Dr. Bronner‘s Magic Soaps and leader in GE food labeling campaigns across the country.” Just like the citizens of Europe, Japan and China, Americans deserve the right to opt out of the genetically engineered food science experiment.”

    ROTHSCHILDS THROUGH MONSANTO, OBAMA, NATO,EUROPEAN UNION AND MERKEL PUSH FOR LOSS OF SOVEREIGNTY OF UNITED STATES AND OF THE EUROPEAN STATES

    ” Transatlantic trade deal secretly pushed amidst the NSA scandal

    A major threat to global sovereignty is being pursued in near silence, as the NSA-Snowden story dominates the headlines. The Transatlantic trade partnership between the E.U. and U.S. is edging closer to completion, as a new regulatory regime is being developed to control trade deals throughout the world. ……..
    “While the idea of a Transatlantic Common Market can be seen as far back as 1948 in the global security integration of NATO, it first gained major momentum in April 2007 when President George W. Bush approved the Transatlantic Economic Council.”
    Robinson continues stating: “This council is a permanent international body… (it) seeks to harmonize a large number of complex U.S. and EU regulations in preparation for a free trade zone by 2015.”……….
    The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership or (TTIP) “seeks to expand U.S.-EU trade flows by eliminating tariffs, reducing U.S.-EU differences in product standards and regulations and increasing investment across the Atlantic.With the European Union and the United States representing 47 percent of global GDP and 33 percent of world trade flows, the potential benefits and risks of this trade agreement are significant.”……….
    In addition to being a trade deal, the TTIP, places heavy regulations on climate and food industries, proving this agreement has more to it than meets the eye. The language that was written for the TTIP could open doors for companies like Monsanto, allowing them to push their genetically engineered food production overseas as well as in the United States.
    Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has been a very outspoken critic of the TTIP and the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP, had this to say about the Transatlantic deal:
    “US seed companies that for a decade have been struggling to break the deadlock over the authorization for the cultivation of their [GM] seeds now will be presented with the ultimate opportunity to change the entire process to suit their needs.”
    The TTIP , is also imposing immovable policies on climate and environmental issues. Here is an excerpt from the Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue report explaining how a ‘carbon tax’ scheme could be introduced with this new trade deal:
    “The agreement must facilitate a transition to more sustainable consumption and production patterns, and not water down or impose barriers to measures for promoting them. To advance sustainability and avert catastrophic climate change, the agreement must ensure that trading partners can adopt tax policies, mandatory performance standards, carbon and pollution regulations, schemes for self-generation or “feed-in” electricity tariffs and renewable energy standards without being subject to challenge under the agreement.”
    The picture is becoming clearer as we see the consolidation of sovereignty under both the Transatlantic and Trans-pacific trade deals. The excessive push by global industries to seduce the public into thinking this is in our best interest, quietly forcing us to comply with a new regulatory regime.
    These deals always happen in secret, in dark halls, with a devil’s hand shake. ” http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/07/09/transatlantic-trade-deal-being-pushed-in-secret-amidst-the-nsa-scandal/

    1) WHO CONTROLS MONSANTO ?

    MONSANTO AND BLACKWATER ARE LINKED WITH BILL GATES.
    ” Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” ” http://english.pravda.ru/business/companies/14-10-2010/115363-machines_of_war_blackwater_monsanto_billgates-0/

    http://larouchepac.com/node/27469 http://naturalsociety.com/monsantos-gmo-seeds-farmer-suicides-every-30-minutes/ http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Monsanto

    BILL GATES IS LINKED WITH THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY, FRONT OF THE ROTHSCHILDS.
    ” Gates was made an honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in 2005. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates
    ” Lord JACOB ROTHSCHILD, the behind-the-scenes controller of the Inter-Alpha Group, was a partner at Rothschild at the time he set up the Inter-Alpha Group in 1971, using its resources and then leaving in 1980 to continue his special mission, which includes advising the genocidal British Crown and managing the funds of Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall, to finance his kooky, “green” schemes.”
    http://unitednationsoffilm.com/?p=1728
    ” Prince Charles already played polo with EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD in his student years and later set up the Interfaith consultations with him. ”
    http://www.gnosticliberationfront.com/people_with_the_endless_bios.htm
    EVELYN DE ROTHSCHILD ” In 1989, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II,[2] for whom he serves as a financial adviser. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Robert_de_Rothschild
    THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY HAS THE CONTROL OF THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/prince-charles-dumps-rbs-boss-372885
    BUT THE ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND IS RELATED ALSO WITH THE EDMOND DE ROTHSCHILD OWNED BY BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benjamin_de_Rothschild ) AND BY HIS WIFE ARIANE DE ROTHSCHILD ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ariane_de_Rothschild ).FOR EXAMPLE THROUGH THE PERSONS OF LAURA SCOLAN AND MARK PHILLIPS,ETC..

    2) ALSO NATO, MERKEL, OBAMA AND EUROPEAN UNION PUSH FOR TRANSATLANTIC DICTATORSHIP.
    http://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/natosource/us-ambassador-to-germany-trans-atlantic-cooperation-is-indispensable
    http://www.germany.info/Vertretung/usa/en/__pr/P__Wash/2013/06/19-TTIP-Berlin.html

    ” Talks on the Atlantic portion of the secretive, dictatorial “free trade” policy being pushed by the Obama Administration, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were cancelled yesterday, just after the cancellation of Obama’s Asian trip dealt a major blow to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks.
    Discussions with the EU over the TTIP were supposed to take place in Brussels tomorrow, after a first round of talks was successfully completed in Washington in July. But European Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht said yesterday that his U.S. counterpart Michael Froman called to say that Washington would not be able to send its delegation because of the government shutdown.
    And over in Bali, Indonesia, U.S. officials battled to put a positive spin on the country’s trade relations with Asia in the wake of President Barack Obama’s no-show at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit, the Singapore Straits Times reported.
    Both the TTP and the TTIP remove control of the participating country’s economy, placing it in the governing international trade body, similar to how the Brussels-based European Union usurped sovereignty of the captive European nations. Both treaties are treated as secret, but it is known that provisions of the governing body will override individual nations’ laws on critical matters such as health care, trade flows, and government run or assisted industries. ” http://larouchepac.com/node/28447

    NATO AND MERKEL ARE CONTROLLED BY DEUTSCHE BANK.
    “Deutsche Bank writes German Finance Ministry’s Greek debt policy, ARD documentary reveals
    The German government’s policy on debt restructuring for Greece is lifted directly from policy papers prepared by the Deutsche Bank, it has emerged.
    The proposal floated at the beginning of June by the German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble for a voluntary bond swap leading to a prolongation of the outstanding Greek sovereign bonds by seven years is based on a document by Deutsche Bank, investigative reporters from Germany’s ARD TV station have revealed.
    http://www.wdr.de/tv/monitor/sendungen/2011/0616/Griechenland.php5
    The Deutsche Bank document called “Proposal for Greek liability management exercise – burden sharing without haircuts” insisted, not surprisingly, on a voluntary participation by banks.
    The revelation that the Finance Ministry in Berlin just takes over the contents of policy papers of Deutsche Bank offers yet more proof that Chancellor Angela Merkel and Wolfgang Schäuble are puppets of the commercial banks.
    Merkel and Deutsche Bank CEO Josef Ackermann attended this year’s Bilderberg conference in Switzerland and would have had ample opportunity to discuss ways and means to expropriate yet more money from the tax payers under one pretext or another. ”

    The honorees were headed by former President Bill Clinton, who was given the Distinguished International Leadership Award for his intervention in the Balkans in the 1990s, expanding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and launching the North American Free Trade Agreement. Josef Ackermann, Chairman of the Management Board and the Group Executive Committee of Deutsche Bank AG, was presented with the Distinguished Business Leadership Award. ”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldman_Sachs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkshire_Hathaway
    ” Elizabeth Neilson used the unflattering phrase as she remembered the ‘crazy’ life her model daughter Annabelle was sucked into after she met Rothschild on a beach in Bali in 1995.
    The pair were married for about two years, divorcing in 1998.
    The short-lived marriage, which it is understood Annabelle ended, was turbulent from the outset, with reports that the pair moved with a fast crowd of heavy drinkers and drug users in New York and London.
    Mrs Neilson also made it plain yesterday that neither she nor any memberof her family wanted to have anything to do with Nat Rothschild [son of Jacob Rothschild ] or his family again.
    Speaking from her £3million home in Chelsea, West London, she said: ‘Nat’s a very naughty boy. He always was when he was younger. ”

    ” Benjamin de Rothschild, only son of the late Edmond de Rothschild, was a classic case of great expectations gone astray. Despite being groomed for greatness from a young age, as a teenager he skipped university and instead headed for Los Angeles with dreams of being a film producer. In LA he started taking drugs, and ended up on heroin. Meanwhile, he failed to make it into Hollywood’s charmed circle and bombed as a film-maker. ” http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/poor-little-rich-boys-1097744.html

    THIS DANGEROUS TRANSATLANTIC UNION BETWEEN UNITED STATES AND EUROPEAN UNION HAS ECONOMIC NATURE BUT, VERY PROBABLY, IN THE FUTURE, WILL BECOME ALSO A MONETARY UNION.
