Natural Solutions Foundation
The following letter is being delivered to the new Chairwoman of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The Foundation President, Gen. Stubblebine and our Medical Director, Dr. Rima E. Laibow MD are both attending the Commission meeting in Rome where they are interacting with delegates, especially those of what we have come to call the “Health Conscious Nations” that choose natural solutions to their pressing social needs. In the past, this has resulted in significant “push-back” that rolled back the globalist agenda [see our Accomplishments Page for some examples: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?page_id=195.
With the world facing weaponized pandemics and weaponized vaccines, the Codex Commission, which has as its first listed mandate, “protecting the health of the consumers and ensuring fair practices in the food trade” [http://www.fao.org/DOCREP/005/Y2200E/y2200e02.htm] must also hear the voices demanding protection for the right of individuals and families to self-shield in their own homes in the event of an actual pandemic; a right implied by the Geneva Conventions and UN Universal Declaration of Rights [see our White Paper on the Right to Self-Shield: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=2752
The Foundation’s Health Freedom Public Observers seem to have been the only independent public witnesses present at the Monday opening session of this week’s annual Commission meeting. That fact prompted the letter:
TO: Dr. Karen L. Hulebak
Codex Alimentarius Commission
Dear Dr. Hulebak:
Congratulations on your first day of chairing the Codex Alimentarius Commission meeting. Like you, the Natural Solutions Foundation, of which I am proud to serve as President, believes that the actions of Codex Alimentarius will have, as you said in your speech today, world wide impact on the lives of everyone in the world.
It is for that reason that the Natural Solutions Foundation, a not for profit NGO with a presence in Central America, West Africa, India, the EU and the United States. allocates scarce resources to attending and analyzing Codex actions, standards and guidelines.
We have attended numerous Codex meetings (e.g., Rome, Geneva, Oslo, Chang Mai, Bonn, Bad Neuenhaur, Ghana, and elsewhere). As the far and away largest health freedom organization in the world, we bring coverage of the activities of Codex to approximately 25 million electronic readers around the globe.
Through our radio shows, we reach an untold number more.
Two years ago we applied for Observer Status at the Codex table. Dr. Claude Moshe, the then-Chairman, believed that our mission was similar enough to that of the [redacted] that we should share the microphone, and a seat at the table, with that organization.
To that end, we have communicated with them asking for a place at the table as directed by Dr. Moshe.
To date, [redacted] has failed to respond, thus denying us our place as participants, stake holders and representatives of an enormous constituency. [redacted] has, however, chosen to share their table and microphone, with other smaller organizations whose impact is far less significant than that of the Natural Solutions Foundation, speaking, as we do, for an enormous number of supporters..
It would appear that at this meeting, unless I am mistaken, once again [redacted] is not in attendance, allowing the “Health Freedom Seat” to go unspoken from. Even if [redacted] is in attendance at this meeting, our constituency does not have a voice at this meeting since our concerns and those of [redacted] are not even close to identical and we are sequestered in an upper gallery without air-conditioning, electrical connections for our computers, other amenities or, m,ore importantly, the ability to make our stakeholders’ voices hears.
Madam Chairwoman, I urge you to correct this obvious and unproductive imbalance: If [redacted] is in attendance at this meeting, of if they are not, the fact remains that the Natural Solutions Foundation is an active participant in Codex – minus a voice. I urge you to correct this situation by either instructing [redacted] to provide the seat at the table which Dr. Moshe directed them to offer us or invite us to apply for Observer Status independently. IF [redacted] is not at this meeting this week, I would be most appreciative if you would be kind enough to make that seat available to us for participation in the 32nd CAC meeting.
Under either set of circumstances, the global constituency of the Natural Solutions Foundation will have to voice thanks to your good offices.
We have brought Codex Alimentarius to the attention and notice of enormous numbers of people and would like to continue doing the same – as active, speaking participants.
I look forward to your immediate response, despite the heavy weight of duties you carry.
Yours in health and freedom,
Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III
(US Army, Ret.)
Natural Solutions Foundation
PS: Attached you will find a copy of our 2006 Application for Observer Status which has been updated. We are seeking immediate relief in this matter. ANS
Excerpts from Application
NATURAL SOLUTIONS FOUNDATION
This is a restated resubmission of the request originally dated March 17, 2006 which was denied with instructions to Codex Observer Organization [redacted] to permit Natural Solutions Foundation “a seat at the table” with other Health Freedom NGOs. Despite repeated requests to [redacted], this courtesy has not been given, although required by the 18th Codex Procedural Manual, Rome, 2008, under the heading “PRINCIPLES CONCERNING THE PARTICIPATION OF INTERNATIONAL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS IN THE WORK OF THE CODEX ALIMENTARIUS COMMISSION”, p. 23, Section 1.
Date: June 29, 2009
To: CODEX ALIMENTARIUS COMMISSION
Viale delle Terme di Caracalla
00100 Rome, Italy
The within constitutes the Foundation’s emergency application to be listed as an Observer Attendee for the current Codex Commission meeting in Rome, as there is no effective representation of the Health Freedom NonGovernmental Organizations. Present at the current meeting as Public Observers are the President of the Natural Solutions Foundation, Maj. Gen. Albert N. Stubblebine III (USA Ret) and its Medical Director, Rima E. Laibow, MD. There do not appear to have been any other Public Observers at the meeting of Monday, June 29, 2009, just concluded. The “Health Freedom” table sometimes occupied by [redacted] as an official Codex Observer was not occupied today.
Natural Solutions Foundation is an international non-governmental, nonprofit corporation in the United States and a duly filed Foundation in the Republic of Panama with a unique educational program to support and enhance participation by Developing Countries in the Codex process (details below). The Foundation is sufficiently different from other consumer or health advocacy groups that are currently Observers that it should be included as an Observer on its behalf, or in the alternative, as the other current health advocacy groups are not attending the current meeting, the representatives of the Foundation should occupy the table in their stead.

The Natural Solutions Foundation was invited to attend the meeting of the Ministers of Health of 42 African countries and their top aides. NSF was admitted to the meeting as an Observer that did not yet have formal credentials with the Regional African Organization (although NSF is working on becoming credentialed participants). When the discussion turned to what the NSF Medical Director, Rima Laibow, MD, felt to be inaccurate Avian Flu information, its prevention and treatment, the just elected President of the organization asked Dr. Laibow to address the meeting, which she did.
The Foundation has also made presentations to the US Food and Drug Administration and has submitted a Citizens’ Petition to the FDA regarding the application of US law to the Codex process.
The Foundation has attended and continues to attend Codex Commission and Committee meetings that are relevant to its work.
