If you’ve read my two previous posts regarding Monsanto and it’s political affiliates, you’ve pretty much caught up to speed with this behemoth and their evil ways. We found out there are many middlemen and women willing to take a heavy bribe while throwing any ethical & logical thought process out the window. But where does it end? If our elected officials are accepting paid donations from a corporate monster, who else is aware of what happens behind closed doors?
Monsanto’s wealth and power allows them to push around politicians, lawyers, businessmen and even judges. Perhaps the most widely known connection to Monsanto is a judge by the name of Clarence Thomas. The connection is so often talked about, Monsanto even has a FAQs section on their website directly explaining (downplaying) their connection to Judge Thomas. Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court judge, worked as a corporate lawyer for Monsanto in the early 1970’s. Thomas has ruled in favor of Monsanto every time. Clarence Thomas was an instrumental player in gaining the FDA’s approval for Aspartame. Another Supreme Court judge, Elena Kagan, has also waived her right to be deemed honorable. In 2007, Monsanto was brought to court by the growers of alfalfa in California. Farmers alleged their crops were being cross-contaminated by Monsanto’s GM crops. The case was initially won by the farmers, but after an appeal by Monsanto, the paid judge wrote an ‘amicus’ brief in favor of the biotech giant. In case you haven’t already caught on, our elected officials are mere pawns.

As Americans, the veil has been pulled snugly over our eyes – we have been sold an illusion of choice. Our Presidents are simply selected by the powers that be to carry out their dirty work, dividing the country into two parties as a concealed distraction to the truth. As we previously saw with Ronald Reagan and his dismissal of FDA commissioner Dr. Jere Goyan in order to pass approval for Aspartame, our Presidents are not acting with integrity – they do not have the best interests of the American people in mind. In fact, most of the elected officials discussed previously have all taken posts during the Clinton, Bush (both) and Obama administration. Tommy Thompson (U.S. Secretary of Health) assigned under the George W. Bush administration, designated his state of Wisconsin as Monsanto’s “biotech” zone and allowed the rampant use of bovine growth hormone (rBGH), albeit the farmers opposed the designation in a ruling of 9-1 ration. Thompson reportedly received $50,000 from biotech companies during his election campaign as Governor of Wisconsin. U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, another George W. Bush appointed marionette, received $10,000 from Monsanto for his senatorial campaign in the 90’s. Ashcroft reportedly contributed 5x more to Monsanto than any other congressional hopeful. Talk about a conflict of interest. President George W. Bush also appointed Donald Rumsfeld, U.S. Secretary of Defense, the man responsible for the controversial rBGH, who also has racketeering charges by the American Diabetes Association for distributing Aspartame (class action led by California; $350 million). Ashcroft, Thompson and Rumsfeld are just a few prime examples of Monsanto’s wicked ties.
Today’s society as we know it is run by handsomely paid psychopaths who have no regard for the safety of the environment and humanity and here’s the kicker – we’ve allowed it.
It isn’t hard to see we have trusted those in power for too long. Not only have they abused our trust – they have depleted our soil of nutrients, devastated our wildlife by the millions and contaminated our water ways – Monsanto and all its henchmen have absolutely no regard for human life – your human life. They have made the conscious decision to accept profit in turn for the lives of people, choosing to blindly turn away from the suffering caused by this deadly technology. Keep in mind, this is only the tip of the iceberg; those discussed in this entry are just a tiny facet of Monsanto’s Governmental and key corporate ties. Today’s society as we know it is run by handsomely paid psychopaths who have no regard for the safety of the environment and humanity and here’s the kicker – we’ve allowed it.
But we can no longer sit back helpless as to the decisions that are being made for us, without our knowledge – the decisions that will dramatically affect the sustainability of our future, as well as our planet’s future. We can no longer excuse the malicious ways of others because “it’s always been this way”. We are facing a critical moment in our conscious evolution.
We are choosing to stand up and fight for our planet, and more importantly generations after us.
We are demanding the right to know what is in our food, how it is produced and how it affects our bodies, our animals and our planet.
We are choosing to become more autonomous and responsible with our personal healthcare, seeking second opinions through our farmers & holistic health coaches, rather than a sterilized medical office.
We are many – old and young – who are equally tired and outraged by a corporately sponsored Government. We can no longer continue to play the same game they’ve created we have trusted to save us. If you aren’t already aware, our Presidents and governing authorities are selected, not elected – we are only given the illusion of choice. Don’t believe me? Meet me on my next post where I discuss the well kept similarities of the candidates of the last presidential election. Until then…love and light.
