US State Dept. pressures France to accept Monsanto's NWO GMOs

Wonderful, just wonderful!



  • In a 2007 cable, the US ambassador to France, Craig Roberts Stapleton, recommended "retaliation" against European "targets" in order to defend Monsanto sales of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Europe, where controversy over GMOs is strong.[30] In the cable, the French decision to suspend Monsanto's MON 810 patented seed product line was described as "damaging".[31] The French government's "apparent recommitment" to the precautionary principle written in the French Constitution was also referred to as "damaging".[31] In the cable, Stapleton stated, "Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory."[31] Anti-GMO activist Jeffrey M. Smith[32] described the contents of the WikiLeaks cables as "[laying] bare the mechanics" of the United States being "joined at the hip with Monsanto and pushing GMOs as part of Monsanto's agenda on the rest of the world."[30] Smith also referred to a 2009 cable in which US diplomats report their 13 May meeting with Monsanto's Director for Biotechnology for Spain and Portugal[33] "and got briefed by him about the politics of the region and created strategies with him to promote the GMO agenda."[30]

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
