The Congressional lame duck “leadership” have used every maneuver allowed by their parliamentary procedures to push through the fake “food safety” bills; what will be, essentially, a law that sets the stage for regulatory imposition of industrialize “farming” methods on our local, natural food production and distribution while implementing the worst of Codex Alimentarius’ international restrictions on our freedoms. It would allow imposition of what we have called “Food Fascism” and be a continuation of the Federal Administration’s policy of “seizing the commanding heights” of the economy.
One of those maneuvers has been to tempt several Senators who are normally on the side of local food production to “go along” with this Big AgBiz-written bill in exchange for some changes in the new farm order to be imposed. Those amendments, even if adopted in their most local-food-friendly versions barely begin to allay our fears of Federal Food Fascism.
Let this example suffice:
Earlier today Bloomberg reported, and the Natural Products Association (NPA) spread it around and about that:
Headline: “Small farms would be exempt from food safety regs” — nice sounding?
But read the Text: “Some small farms would be exempt…”
Read the rest here: http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D9JJ0G700.htm
Bloomberg, we should point out, is the media outlet of the wealthy Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City. Just as a reminder, New York City is not what most people would call a farming community. It does not raise food and is not the home of any significant number of small farms. Just why is Bloomberg organization positioning itself as a Company Man in the food wars which have been thrust upon us by the likes of Monsanto Man, Michael Taylor, now our Food Safety [sic!] Czar? And why would the Natural Products Association take the position that industrializing the US Food Supply is a good thing? We believe that their lawyers are as capable as ours of reading the bills and discerning the disastrous consequences and stipulations. We’ve quoted specific language from the Manager’s Bill that would allow secret regulations, would pave the way to full implementation of Codex Alimentarius (the so-called ‘world food code’ that serves the globalists’ interests) and have shown how the “exemptions” will hardly protect significant proportions of local food production.
Could it be because their membership is heavily weighted to Big Pharma? Given that Big Pharma makes most of the nutrients and “natural products” with which they deal, and given the fact that clean food is a direct threat to Big Pharma, whose income rests on your impaired nutrition and immune system, and given the fact that Big Pharma is also Big AgraBiz and Big Chema and Big Biotech, could it be that NPA (formerly the NNFA) has once again acted the whore to its powerful members as it did when it produced its expensive (rumored to have cost $800,000) “Report” assuring wellness companies that Codex would prove not threat to them or their businesses? see http://drrimatruthreports.com/?page_id=180 for a detailed analysis of that report.
Make no mistake: $.510 will not only hurt small farmers, it will eventually criminalize their activity, and yours if you are growing your own food, and put them out of business. Done. Finished. Over. Ended.
But consider our $.510 Talking Points,http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=6910, first published weeks ago, to see the truth is that only a small percent of local food production and distribution would be exempt from Federal controls under the best of the amendments; only partially protecting a few small family farms, representing a small percentage of local food production, and as inflation kicks in, without indexing, the “protections” will become meaningless. Under one version of the “let them eat cake” amendment, only farms grossing less than $500,000 annually would be exempt… and as inflation kicks in, even with “indexing” pegged to the manipulated CPI, the “protections” will become meaningless.
“In 2009, the majority of family farms (60 percent) had gross sales of less than $10,000, but they accounted for only 2 percent of the total value of agricultural production… Family farms with gross sales of $10,000 to $249,999 were 30 percent of the family farms and were responsible for 18 percent of production. At the other end of the size distribution, the 10 percent of family farms that grossed at least $250,000 accounted for 80 percent of the value of production…” http://www.ers.usda.gov/Briefing/WellBeing/farmhouseincome.htm
Talking Points: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=6910
What percent of local food production would be protected? The above Federal figures do not reveal that, but applying a reasonable distribution curve suggests less than 40%.
Bloomberg’s and NPA’s headlines are misleading and the threat from S.510 is far worse than they imagine.
But we do not need to let that happen. Here’s the plan to STOP S.510!!!
1. Flood Senators’ home offices with calls over the Thanksgiving holiday week; if you know the Senator personally, call him/her direct, or talk to him/her over the Thanksgiving Day table!
2. Begin to flood the Senate with emails starting Sunday 11.28 and peaking throughout 11.29 — our system reached over 5,000 emails an hour for several hours a day, several days last week. Other groups were similarly engaged. We need to do much better.
No time for Thanksgiving yet, no time to pat ourselves on the back! Our Senators are home… it’s time for the Home Folks to tell them what we want: Vote “No!” on S. 510. Even Sen. Testor or Dr. Coburn’s well-intentioned amendments do not go far enough to protect local, organic, family, community food production and distribution!
If the lame duck “leadership” forces this bad bill through the Senate, we will flood the House of Representatives with opposing emails; if it is sent to the White House, we will petition the current occupant to veto the bill; if he signs it, we will demand that the new Congress refuse to fund its provisions, including any funding for more FDA inspectors or for any “HARMonizing” with Codex Alimentarius, or any other provision that restricts Food Freedom!

Right now you and I and our Freedom Mouses are all that stand between Food Freedom under a corrupt FDA and Food Fascism under an FDA on steroids… a true Food Gestapo.
Yours in health and freedom.
