von protests last year in order to create public pressure that led to Zimmerman’s arrest after local police had already concluded that Zimmerman had acted in self-defense and that no charges were necessary. The ex-Sanford police chief Bill Lee also went public to reveal that the case had been hijacked “in a number of ways” by outside forces and that “he felt pressure from city officials to arrest Zimmerman to placate the public rather than as a matter of justice.” In one sense, the Zimmerman trial served as an extremely useful distraction from the myriad of scandals that plagued the Obama administration in the weeks before the case came to dominate U.S. television networks. The NSA PRISM controversy, the IRS targeting conservative groups, and the AP hacking probe all virtually disappeared from the headlines as the nation obsessed over every development in a Florida courtroom. However, once the fix was in, and the Obama administration secured its show trial, it didn’t really matter whether Zimmerman was found guilty or not. The political hijacking of the case was about contriving selective outrage and then channeling that outrage into the demonization of the right to self-defense, the right to own guns, and the sanctity of juries, while at the same time driving a further wedge between black and white America. Instead of unifying around the universal liberties enshrined in the constitution and coming together to stand up to an out-of-control national security state that is spying on all Americans, stealing their financial future, and erecting a police state, the Trayvon Martin tragedy allowed Americans to be tricked into buying into the politics of racial division, while ignoring their true common enemy.

Obama’s Syria Policy is Like Bush’s Iraq Policy
“Today, we’re also working for a transition so the Syrian people can have a better future, free of the Assad regime. And given the regime’s stockpiles of chemical weapons, we will continue to make it clear to Assad and those around him that the world is watching, and that they will be held accountable by the international community and the United States, should they make the tragic mistake of using those weapons.”
“The Iraqi regime ... possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons. We know that the regime has produced thousands of tons of chemical agents, including mustard gas, sarin nerve gas, VX nerve gas... “... for the sake of protecting our friends and allies, the United States will lead a mighty coalition of freedom-loving nations and disarm Saddam Hussein.”

World War III Brews as Nation Distracted by Trayvon Martin Case written by:
Anthony Gucciardi s the world reacts to the Trayvon Martin case, including prominent rappers calling out the media over its race baiting, reports detail around 160,000 Russian troops were called to “combat readiness” following an Israeli strike on Russian-made missiles in Syria. Is the nation too distracted by the George Zimmerman trial’s 24/7 news cycle to even know about this developing situation that coincides with escalating ten-
sions between Russian and U.S.-affiliated nations around the world? First up is the new revelation that Israel was behind an attack on Syria that tar-
geted Russian-made anti-ship missiles. According to the Israeli National News sources within the U.S., Israel recently launched an attack on Russian missiles that were apparently sold to Syria and stationed at a critical point within the country. Until now, it was unknown who had initiated the bombing that had rocked Latakia on July 5th. Ultimately, bombing the critical point holding the Russian’s Yakhont anti-ship missile, Israel is believed to have initiated the bombing via aircraft or a ship in the Mediterranean. According to the anonymous U.S. official who corresponded with CNN, “This attack was either by air raid or long-range missiles fired from boats in the Mediterranean.” Now enter new reports surfacing from the Russian Defense Ministry on orders of Vladimir Putin that the largest military “state of full combat readiness” drill is taking place with around 160,000 troops ordered to report from all corners of the military. Specifically, the translated reports detail how Putin is calling together not just Armed Forces of Russia troops, but all forms of long-range aircraft, 70 naval ships, bomber and fighter aircraft, and so on. According to a syndicated Russian announcement, “On Friday, during a meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an unexpected military drill, urging all forces to enter a state of full combat readiness on the night of July 13.” These reports say that Putin is essentially assembling the entire military in the largest such event since the Soviet Union. This is coming in from the Russian language version of Forbes and other Russian sources translated to English. Is this massive “state of full combat readiness” initiated on July 13th just a training exercise with no further intention, or is it related to the attack by Israel on Russian-made missiles in Syria? Whether this is truly the initiation of a massive conflict between world powers or not, it’s certainly worth the attention of the media and general public. While it does take a lot of digging to sort through all of these Russian language announcements and get to the bottom of the story, it’s much more important than what George Zimmerman’s lawyers ate for breakfast this morning.

Official Boston Bombing Narrative: A Cavalcade of Lies and Distortion From the outset, the official version of events surrounding the Boston bombing event consisted of a sketchy amalgamation of lies and fabrications that, like early versions of the 9/11 fairy tale, represented a work in progress.

Media-presented evidence is no substitute for due process and an adversarial trial.” Now that the official version has more or less gelled, and previous versions have found the Orwellian memory hole, the government will continue to use the suspicious

Presidential Destruction of Political Opposition written by: Kurt Nimmo
n July 7, Rep. Mike Kelly, a Pennsylvania Republican, told Breitbart News that additional details forthcoming in the IRS scandal will reveal how the Obama administration used the tax agency as a political tool against its political enemies. “I think what we’re going to find out and I think that the deeper part is not so much the Tea Party and the ‘Patriot’ and those people who were targeted, but the information that has been leaked,” Kelly, who is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee currently investigating the scandal, told Breitbart in a telephone interview. “The information that the IRS has on file on people goes pretty deep into personal lives. It is being leaked out and given to people for very specific political reasons. I think this is something that should be the most chilling thing for Americans to understand,” Kelly explained. “This is a branch of government, and it is under the executive branch that can be used for a lot of different intimidation elements. Think of what these people have, think of what they have on everybody. If they leak that out to the right person at the right time in the right movement that’s looking to do something, they can completely destroy individuals.” The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released in early May an audit report confirming the IRS used on behalf of the Obama Administration inappropriate criteria to target political enemies. Despite efforts by President Obama to distance himself from the accusations and limit damage arising from the revelations, Republicans have exploited the scandal for partisan advantage. In fact, both Democrats and Republicans routinely use not only the IRS, but a number of other federal agencies to engage in sundry witch hunts targeting their political opposition.
IRS as Political Truncheon
History demonstrates that using the IRS as a weapon against political enemies has proved irresistible for presidents, both Democrat and Republican. Democrat Franklin Roosevelt used the agency to go after newspapers opposed to his socialist New Deal. FDR had the IRS target Huey Long, Father Coughlin, and Republicans, such as former Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon. President Kennedy used the IRS to target the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade, the
American Enterprise Institute, the Foundation for Economic Education, and other groups. “By directing tax audits at individuals and groups solely because of their political beliefs, [Kennedy’s] Ideological Organizations Audit Project established a precedent for a far more elaborate program of targeting ‘dissidents,’” states a 1976 report by the Senate Select Committee on Government Intelligence. Richard Nixon created a Special Services Staff to go after “all IRS activities involving ideological, militant, subversive, radical, and similar type organizations.” Nixon went so far as to pass his notorious enemies list on to the IRS in an effort to “use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies,” according to former White House counsel John Dean. Nixon’s 1974 impeachment charged him with trying to gain “confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits, or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.” Following a report issued by the Democratic National Committee in 1995 attacking Bill Clinton’s political enemies, the IRS went after the Heritage Foundation and The American Spectator magazine. Clinton accusers, including Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers, were targeted with IRS audits. In 1999, the Associated Press reported that “officials in the Democratic White House and members of both parties in Congress have prompted hundreds of audits of political opponents in the 1990s.” Requests from Congress to audit political enemies were expedited, thus underscoring the fact the agency serves as a political weapon not only for presidents, but the entire political class. “Permitting congressmen to secretly and effortlessly sic G-men on whomever they pleased epitomized official Washington’s contempt for average Americans and fair play. But because the abuse was bipartisan, there was little enthusiasm on Capitol Hill for an investigation,” writes James Bovard for the Wall Street Journal.
FBI Terrorism Unleashed
In addition to the Internal Revenue Service, the government has used the Justice Department’s criminal investigative body, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to attack political enemies. While the FBI has targeted political
foes since its inception in 1908, known then simply as the Bureau of Investigation, the effort did not reach its apex until 1956 with the establishment of COINTELPRO, an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program. Then director J. Edgar Hoover instructed the secret and illegal operation to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” the activities of largely legal political organizations, targeting at first socialists and communists, but in later years the so-called “New Left,” anti-war, and “national liberation” activists, and the civil rights movement, notably the activities of Nobel Peace Prize recipient and founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Martin Luther King Jr. “J. Edgar Hoover had decided to destroy the civil rights movement as it was considered a threat to the status quo,” writes D.S. Wright. “As a result the FBI conducted surveillance on King looking for dirt to destroy his credibility. The FBI had a divide and conquer campaign within the civil rights movement and tried to sow division by false flag operations and anonymous communications to bring terror and paranoia to the activists.” Brian Glick, in his book War at Home, describes the methods used by the FBI to destroy the establishment’s political adversaries. “When congressional investigations, political trials, and other traditional legal modes of repression failed to counter the growing movements, and even helped to fuel them, the FBI and police moved outside the law,” writes Glick. “They resorted to the secret and systematic use of fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally protected political activity. Their methods ranged far beyond surveillance, amounting to a home front version of the covert action for which the CIA has become infamous throughout the world.” Glick summarizes techniques used by the FBI: 1) Infiltration: Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt. Their very presence served to undermine trust and scare off potential supporters. The FBI and police exploited this fear to smear genuine activists as agents. 2) Psychological Warfare from the Outside: The FBI and police used a myriad of other “dirty tricks” to undermine progressive movements. They planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications
in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls. They spread misinformation about meetings and events, set up pseudo movement groups run by government agents, and manipulated or strong-armed parents, employers, landlords, school officials, and others to cause trouble for activists. 3) Harassment through the Legal System: The FBI and police abused the legal system to harass dissidents and make them appear to be criminals. Officers of the law gave perjured testimony and presented fabricated evidence as a pretext for false arrests and wrongful imprisonment. They discriminatorily enforced tax laws and other government regulations and used conspicuous surveillance, “investigative” interviews, and grand jury subpoenas in an effort to intimidate activists and silence their supporters. 4) Extralegal Force and Violence: The FBI and police threatened, instigated, and conducted break-ins, vandalism, assaults, and beatings. The object was to frighten dissidents and disrupt their movements. In the case of radical Black and Puerto Rican activists (and later Native Americans), these attacks — including political assassinations — were so extensive, vicious, and calculated that they can accurately be termed a form of official “terrorism.” In 2012, documents received by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed the FBI had not terminated the program, as it claimed to have done in 1971. The documents detail a concerted effort by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, the latter ostensibly created to combat terrorism, to destroy and render politically ineffective the Occupy Wall Street movement. The documents released through the FOIA paint a picture of close collaboration between the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces, fusion centers, and state and local law enforcement around the country. In addition to massive surveillance, the FBI considered assassinating Occupy Wall Street activists, a plan that harks back to the darkest days of CLOINTELPRO when members of the Black Panthers and the American Indian Movement were targeted for elimination. “Most disturbing of all, there is talk of the government being ready to ‘engage in sniper attacks against protesters in Houston, Texas, if deemed necessary’ and perhaps needing to
formulate a plan ‘to kill the leadership [of the protest groups] via suppressed sniper rifles,’” writes Tom McNamara for Counterpunch.
CIA Violates Its Charter
Although the CIA’s charter states it cannot operate within the United States, the agency has done so on numerous occasions, most notably under Operation CHAOS. As a result of the CIA’s work with émigré organizations in the 1950s under President Eisenhower, a number of proprietary companies, fronts, and covers were established for the purpose of conducting illegal intelligence activity within the United States. “So widespread did they become that President Johnson allowed the then CIA Director, John McCone, to create in 1964 a new super-secret branch called the Domestic Operations Division (DOD), the very title of which mocked the explicit intent of Congress to prohibit CIA operations inside the U.S. This disdain for Congress permeated the upper echelons of the CIA,” writes Verne Lyon, a former CIA undercover operative. “With the DCS, the DOD, the old boy network, and the CIA Office of Security operating without congressional oversight or public knowledge, all that was needed to bring it together was a perceived threat to the national security and a presidential directive unleashing the dogs,” Lyon explains. “That happened in 1965 when President Johnson instructed McCone to provide an independent analysis of the growing problem of student protest against the war in Vietnam. Prior to this, Johnson had to rely on information provided by the FBI, intelligence that he perceived to be slanted by Hoover’s personal views, which often ignored the facts.” Two sub programs under Operation CHAOS, Project RESISTANCE and Project MERRIMAC, subverted the anti-war movement from within by inserting moles and agents provocateur. “Under both Projects, the CIA infiltrated agents into domestic groups of all types and activities,” Lyon continues. “It used its contacts with local police departments and their intelligence units to pick up its ‘police skills’ and began in earnest to pull off burglaries, illegal entries, use of explosives, criminal frame-ups, shared interrogations, and disinformation. CIA teams purchased sophisticated equipment for many starved police departments, and in return got
to see arrest records, suspect lists, and intelligence reports. Many large police departments, in conjunction with the CIA, carried out illegal, warrantless searches of private properties.”
The Surveillance and Subversion State
These are only the most egregious and publicly known efforts by the government to kill off political activism the establishment considers a threat to maintaining the political status quo and to continue to expand the national security state. Doubtlessly, there are more we do not know about. Whistleblower Edward Snowden has demonstrated that the government is interested in nothing short of creating a nightmarish Stasi surveillance state capable of monitoring and cataloguing not only the financial and social activity of the American people, but their political behavior as well. In fact, undermining potential adversaries and destroying their ability to organize politically is the primary goal of Prism and other such programs. The IRS scandal pales in comparison when stacked up against COINTELPRO, Operation CHAOS, and other lesser-known programs run out of the Pentagon and intelligence operations attached to any number of federal agencies, including the Department of Energy (the Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence) and the Treasury Department (Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence). The overblown IRS scandal represents a small and basically feeble attempt to sidetrack the Tea Party movement, which is now more or less a subsidiary of the Republican Party and, beyond partisan politics, does not pose a serious threat to the establishment. The so-called scandal is a manifestation of the False Left-Right Paradigm and its endless internal, sectarian warfare designed to sidetrack meaningful political change. Leaders of the Tea Party movement should be thankful the FBI did not decide to assassinate its leaders as it apparently did with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Peter Santa Maria
INFOWARS MAGAZINE: HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN PRODUCING ART? Peter Santa-Maria: I grew up reading comics and watching cartoons like most kids. I always knew I wanted to be involved in producing them one day. As I got older, I became involved in the music industry, and I saw the reality behind all of the glitz and glam. It wasn’t something I wanted to be a part of long term, and it gave me a perspective on people that I did not have before. I needed to succeed or fail on my own merits, so I rediscovered my love for visual art and started drawing, painting, and sculpting 24/7 until I felt like I had the chops to exhibit.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION FOR YOU WORK? In terms of style, my biggest influences are comic book illustrators like Mike Mignola, Frank Miller, Eric Powell, Ryan Ottley, James Jean, and Scott Morse. Those are the guys that I look at over and over again. Other contemporary artists that inspire me are Dan McCall and Brian Reedy. Historically, I love Honore Daumier, who was imprisoned for his depiction of King Louis Philippe in a print titled Gargantua. Everyone look him up. In terms of theme, I just look around at what’s going on. I feel a responsibility to use my skills for fighting corruption and injustice. Until I create an image that communicates my thoughts on an issue, I can’t do or think about anything else, but I always look to satirize and poke fun at authority in the process. I ask myself, “How can I get people who are apathetic or opposed to my point of view to see where I am coming from, especially when what I am trying to say has been labeled extreme by others?” Humor is the answer. When everyone is laughing, everyone is experiencing commonality, and therefore, more likely to listen to what each other has to say. It works almost every single time.
Peter Santa-Maria, an artist, high school teacher, and Infowarrior, crossed our path in the middle of July as a caller on the Alex Jones Show. He impressed us with his energy and talent, along with his steadily growing momentum, due in part to a film by independent news and activist website WeAreChange.org featuring Santa-Maria’s artwork. His work successfully melds his passion for freedom and expression with a challenge to action by way of combining pop-culture references with themes of our current degenerative society and political system. It is simultaneously playfully irreverent, visually intriguing, and mentally stimulating. His work can be found at attacktheplanet.com, a website he shares with friend and fellow artist Brian Reedy.
HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH WOODCUT PRINTING FROM CARTOONING AND ILLUSTRATION? I pick the technique based on the image and my plan for it, but I love working in different media. I started woodcuts after meeting Brian Reedy. Watching him work makes you want to do the same. It also turned out to be a relatively cheap way to make many reproductions all by hand. Woodcuts lend themselves to political art I make because you can see the artist’s hand in the work. We are in a time where people want to go back to the organic, the hand-made, the down-to-earth. These prints meet that desire.
A VIDEO OF YOURS SHOWCASING YOUR WORK WAS RECENTLY FEATURED ON WE ARE CHANGE. HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH WE ARE CHANGE, AND WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO COME FROM THE EXPOSURE?
I am incredibly grateful to Luke Rudkowski and We Are Change. I’ve always been a fan of their work. My friend and filmmaker Christoper Delamo of RedPillPhilosophy.com was working with We Are Change prior, so he told me there was a chance they’d launch the video. He’s another example of just getting active in your own capacity to affect change. The only thing I hope that will come of this video and the attention my work has been receiving is that others will start doing whatever it is they do well to bring awareness to the issues we all feel are important. It’s amazing how powerful we all are.
WHAT RESPONSES ARE YOU GETTING FROM YOUR ARTWORK? It has been incredible! We sold out of a small ‘zine I made with Brian Reedy illustrating crazy current event articles. I stuck to my guns and sold a painting to a big-time art collector. It was of a fat kid with tumor creatures and scientists talking to Donald Rumsfeld about how aspartame is dangerous. Rumsfeld says something about how that’s perfect for killing some kids. Abrasive and offensive, but that is what makes me laugh and it’s based in reality. That collector gave me a highly coveted space in the Wynwood Art District here in Miami, and I had my first solo exhibition. Sold a ton of controversial political paintings with large price tags and I haven’t looked back. One guy told me he wanted to set my prints on fire. I told him to buy them first.
WHAT CAUSED YOU TO PRODUCE POLITICALLY FUELED ARTWORK? My grandfather had to flee his home and journalism career in Cuba with his wife and two young daughters in the bottom of a ship after Fidel Castro took over. My stepfather was in prison for over a year because he made artwork and films protesting the Castro regime and showing the truth about life in Cuba under the despot. Since I can remember, I have had a disdain for tyrants and unlawful authority in general. I was disconnected from current events and politics for a long time, thinking that there was nothing someone like me could do. I watched the Ron Paul debates in 2007, and instantly, everything came into focus. This was the first time anyone from the government was saying something that made sense to me. After that, a group of friends and I attended political happenings to hand out literature on Ron Paul. I was at a famous Cuban restaurant in Miami called Versailles for a Rudy Giuliani event. I sat down in the café and had just ordered some food near where Giuliani was going to pander when I felt two giant hands grab me by the back of my shirt collar and rip me out of my seat. The voice with a thick New York accent said, “You can eat later!” Before I could blink, I was thrown out of the restaurant’s side entrance and locked out by some enormous, plain-clothes goon. I was wearing a t-shirt that simply said, “Listen to Ron Paul,” which I’m sure was what got me tossed. By the time I was able to get back in through a bunch of rented security guards, they had escorted that nerdy ghoul Giuliani out of there. It was just like the stories I had heard growing up about Cuba, but here in the free country. It’s a constant source of motivation. There are Giulianis everywhere. Disgusting.
YOU TEACH ADVANCED ART CLASSES FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. DO YOU ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO QUESTION AUTHORITY? Of course, though I try to be clever about it. I look for the moments when lessons can be taught organically, so I can help them interpret a situation in their own way, as opposed to telling them that they have to rebel. Some kids are dealing with things that are much more immediate than geo-political events. They tend to disconnect themselves from the outside world because their smaller world is much more pressing. Most are still searching for their identity, and I try to help them find at least a part of it. I would say, however, that most of them are skeptical of anyone who would tell them what to do. The first thing they see in my classroom when they walk in everyday is a giant poster of Gandhi’s head that says “DISOBEY.”
SINCE YOU NOTICE THAT MANY STUDENTS HAVE MORE IMMEDIATELY PRESSING CONCERNS, IS THERE HOPE IN YOUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FOR BROADER POLITICAL AND SOCIETAL CHANGES? Yes! They are brilliant, creative, energetic, and cannot wait to get out into the world. They are empowered through their craft and skill. They aren’t going to take crap from anyone. The world is going to come at them fast when they graduate and they will be ready. My students question everything. My school is in a rough neighborhood, but these kids have their heads up and are making great work and winning awards. I know that more than a few are going to make great artwork and blow people’s minds! They will affect change through their intelligence, kindness, courage and ability. I love them.
WHAT IS THE POLITICAL CLIMATE IN MIAMI THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO COUNTER? I love Miami. I don’t think I could live anywhere else. There is so much culture and diversity. The art in Miami is world famous. Every year, the Art Basel show brings people from the four corners of the Earth. The weather is great; the food is great; the only thing that ruins Miami are the corrupt local politicians. We meet a lot of great people who were doing everything in their power to improve things locally, but it is obvious that the local mafia are using the people’s resources to climb to higher positions in politics. Everyone is dirty, I’m telling you. The thing with the local politics is they have a lot of money behind the corruption here. When you try and go up against them they start to rage like creatures from a horror film. They’re just a bunch of dorks though. We have no money and no history and have affected a lot of change, turning a lot of people’s heads in different directions. I feel that I affect more positive change now through my interactions with my students and my artwork, which allows me to meet new people outside of politics that are where I once was — apathetic. I encourage people to get active, and I am teaching young people the skills. I feel like I am helping to build an army of good people.
Since I can remember, I have had a disdain for tyrants and unlawful authority in general. I was disconnected from current events and politics for a long time, thinking that there was nothing someone like me could do.

The Hidden Horrors of Genetically-Modified Foods
Public knowledge and awareness of genetically-engineered (GE) foods or genetically-modified organisms
(GMO) has been steadily building for years now, but California’s Proposition 37 introduced last year left even more people wondering what GMOs were and why it was such a big deal they be labeled. Proposition 37 made the ballot last November through a petition of signatures from California residents. If passed, according to voterguide.com, the proposition would have required labeling on “food sold to consumers made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specific ways.” This would have prohibited marketing such foods as “natural.” Even though polls showed that Californians overwhelmingly supported Prop 37, the legislation still failed by 6 percent of the vote. The failure was due in part to massive campaign dollars raised and used by giant corporations like Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, and Kellogg, who helped raise over $43 million dollars, while the grassroots campaign raised a mere $9 million. The campaign waged against Prop 37 spread a slew of ugly deceptive lies attempting to persuade the public into voting against the proposition. One of the major lies told by the big lobbyists was that Californians would see their grocery bills increase by at least $600 a month. Another deceitful tactic included a mailer sent out to voters using a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seal that fooled the recipients into thinking the FDA was against the measure. Despite the fail of Prop 37, many states, like Connecticut and Maine, have since moved towards enacting their own regulations on labeling GMOs. However, there’s a catch. The states can’t move forward with the law until four neighboring states pass similar laws. Clearly this puts a damper on the victories. Americans took another blow on March 26 when President Obama surreptitiously signed the Farmer Assurance Provision, commonly referred to as the Monsanto Protection Act, into law while the public was conveniently fixated on other distractingly publicized controversial topics. The Monsanto Protection Act bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of GE seeds. Food Democracy Now!, a grassroots movement of 650,000 farmers and citizens, claims, “it’s basically an ATM machine and a corporate handout to Monsanto that puts every farmer and consumer at risk.”
WHY ALL THE FUSS OVER THE RIGHT TO HAVE OUR FOODS LABELED? Well, to start, cancer has gone from the tenth cause of death to the second in just over fifteen years. Other health problems such as infertility, obesity, diabetes, food allergies, and autism have all seen massive increases since GMOs entered the market. Biotech companies like Monsanto, Dupont, and Dow claim that GM seeds are better because they withstand extreme weather conditions, offer increased yield and are more nutritious. However, these are blatant lies, and in all actuality, they have been found to perform worse than conventional seeds, and are not only unhealthy, but deadly for humans and animals alike. When genetically-modified plants produce their own insecticide, the same poison gets passed on to the consumer. These poisons are then ingested into the blood stream and do not only stay present for lengths of
time, but have the capability of reproducing inside you. This means that your own body can become an insecticide-producing factory. In addition, the plants are also sprayed with heavy doses of harsh chemicals. Roundup, one of the main chemicals used, has been proven to cause hormone disruption, DNA damage, cancer, birth defects, and neurological disorders. Instead of warding off weeds, it has actually caused super-weeds and super-bugs to develop that are resistant to herbicides and pesticides and are still destroying crops. Ingesting the poisons found in GM foods causes your cells to lose their identity and fail to recall their function. Once cells lose their functionality, they can no longer provide your organs with the instructions needed to operate. These frightening side-effects are the reason many states are finally rushing to, at the very least, label GMOs, so that people have the freedom to make a choice regarding food that won’t cause cancer, infertility, or any other horrifying disease. Not to worry though because Monsanto swears their products are safe. How do they know? Well, they’ve employed their own scientists to conduct their own short term studies that say GM foods are completely safe. To the contrary, studies done independently (and outside of the U.S., because Monsanto has made it illegal for anyone else in the country to test their products) have had quite different results. For example, the longest running study, totaling two years of experimentation, was conducted in France and published last year. The results were scarier than you can imagine. The French study involved 200 rats with a life span of two years. Researchers investigated how a diet of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready corn affected their health. According to Mother Earth News, the study separated the rats into ten groups, of which “three had part of their standard diet replaced at varying levels with Roundup Ready corn that had been treated with Roundup in the field; three received the same feed protocol, but with untreated Roundup-Ready corn; three ate no GM corn, but had tiny amounts of Roundup herbicide in their drinking water; and one control group ate two-thirds standard rat chow and one-third non-GM

corn. Each group contained ten females and ten males.” The results revealed disturbing “severe adverse health effects,” including the development of mammary tumors, as well as kidney and liver damage, which led to premature death. Most of the side-effects only became apparent after 90 days. Conveniently, Monsanto’s longest study of side-effects concluded at 90 days. Towards the end of the study, researchers found that “50 to 80 percent of the
female rats had developed large tumors, compared with only 30 percent developing tumors in the control group. In males, liver congestion and necrosis were 2.5 to 5.5 times higher than in the control group, and there were 1.3 to 2.3 times more instances of kidney disease. Overall, among the rats receiving GM corn and/or Roundup, up to 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group.” Some professionals argue that rats aren’t suitable test subjects because humans are simply too different biologically and far more complex. However, nearly every product we use today is either first tested on rats or some other type of mammal before granted approval for humans. Humans aren’t the only ones adversely affected by GM food though. Recently, farmers have been understandably upset about mass die-offs and infertility occurring in their livestock. Livestock news source Cattle Network says Iowa farmer Jerry Rosman started giving his pigs “GMO corn in feed in 1997 without trouble, but things changed in 2000 when he switched to a different company’s genetics with a new genetically modified trait. Starting in 2000, most of Rosman’s animals were unable to reproduce with a low sperm count in males and females showing false pregnancies. The pigs that were reproducing had smaller litters. By adjusting the type of corn used, Rosman concluded the corn with the genetically modified trait he started using in 2000 was causing the problem. Continued losses and his shrinking herd forced him to close his farm two years later.” Some of Rosman’s pigs even gave birth to empty bags of water.
