Codex Report #2: July 1, 2009
There is a lot going on here in Codex land and I want to take a moment to thank you all, collectively, for sending the Natural Solutions Foundation here so that we can attend the 32nd Codex Commission (not a lot of fun, actually, but very important to those of us who care deeply about food and freedom; health and freedom).
We are sitting, as before, under guard in a hot gallery with no one here but us chickens, and the hen house guards, so to speak. There do not seem to be any other Public Observers, unless they are not being confined to the upper balcony.
I posted photos of the meeting with our first Codex Report, here:
Yesterday afternoon, when I went into the meeting room during a break to present our business cards to the Delegate from Benin, a country with which we have ongoing relations, and two agricultural projects in progress, General Bert was approached by an obviously shame-faced guard who told him to get me out of the room. When Gen. Bert told me that I had to leave, rather than continue the conversation with the delegate, I asked the guard why he was ejecting us from the room. He said several times, “It is not me, madam, it is not me. I am not responsible.” “Well, then, who is responsible? Whose orders are these, that we cannot be in this room?” I asked. He replied, “The Codex people, madam, they told me to keep you out!”
But wait! This is is an open meeting. Or is it?
Yesterday, we were awaiting the arrival of my friend who has an organic farm near Rome and a few of her friends. There is precious little available about Codex here in Italy, but she wanted to experience it for herself and brought others who did, too, including 2 teenagers.
I was not aware of it until last night when she and I chatted but she arrived at the Food and Agriculture Building at the appointed time. The guards and registration personnel blocked their entry. They were quizzed intensively about why they were interested in such a technical meeting and told that the teens were “a security risk”. Two and a half hours later, they still had not been admitted to this “Open Meeting…”
Open to Whom? What age do you have to be to attend this “open” meeting.
What is Codex hiding? And whom are they hiding it from?
What do they fear if we, or other observers, actually observe?
We are finding out more about the answers to this question as we go along and of course we will keep you informed about what is going on here and why.
Before I give you the juicy sub-text of the moment, and tell you why your voice, Health Freedom’s Voice, has apparently become the center of a turf battle -royal and why you can expect fierce (and fascinating) disinformation zinging around the Internet, at least for a while.
I did a radio show with Fred van Liew a while ago in which he introduced me to his audience by saying that you can tell who a person is by their enemies and, he added, “You, Dr. Laibow, have all of the right enemies.”
You can also, of course, tell a great deal about the real motives of people by looking at whether they attack you.
OK. What is this about?
As you know, we have been, and continue to be, outspoken critics of Codex, an organ of the WHO, FAO and UN, almost totally controlled by people who want a lot fewer people on the planet and are willing to criminalize the production of clean, healthy food to profit from illness and gain ground on the depopulation killing fields while doing it.
Remember WHO, the World “Health” Organization? The one that says a sustainable planet should have just 10% of its current population in order to be “sustainable”. And FAO, the Food and Agriculture Organization, which is happy to have more and more and more chemicals, irradiation, GMOs, veterinary drugs and just about anything else that makes money for corporations dumped in higher and higher levels into “food”.
It is worthwhile remembering that this WHO is the same one as the WHO which on June 11, 2009 declared the existence of an absurd Level 6 “Pandemic” resulting in an almost unthinkable windfall for large numbers of pharmaceutical companies, human trials for vaccines being rushed into production, the growing threat of mandatory vaccination or incarceration – all against the “threat” of a clearly bio engineered virus.
So let us not be too respectful of processes and organizations which do not deserve either respect or trust. We must be enormously careful about, and distrustful of, anything which comes out of this process. Now consider that the United States Government, always ready to do the bidding of the multinational masters who want to control our food totally, is considering farm bills which will bring home to our tables whatever, and I do mean whatever, Codex decides to pass. See yesterday’s Report about poisoned pigs…

Let’s be clear here: there are no consumers here raising their voices for us. We are not allowed to speak. The one health freedom organization that is “allowed” to speak here chooses to be mute. Industry is here (we are talking Big Pharma, Big Biotech, Big Agribiz, Big Irradiaton, and so on), speaking like Jim Henson through cute little Muppets with names like “The US Delegate to Codex” or “The Australian Delegate to Codex”, etc.
Food Freedom vs Food Fascism
Food is the source of freedom, and, unless we push-back, of fascism. The new Food Bills in front of Congress, including HR 2749 allows the FDA to literally declare martial law for “food safety” threats AND implement Codex. Farmers will be forced to farm in accordance with Codex. Rremember, the FDA announced way back on October 11, 1994 in the Federal Register that it would “HARMonzie” with International Standards – that means Codex, whether or not those standards were finalized.
Food fascism will be complete, complete with martial law, complete with required chemicals in your food, complete with required animal surveillance, complete with GMO feed for animals, complete with meaningless “organic” standards, complete with forbidden seed saving. Sound good? Click here to make sure this does not happen. Please click below to send your message to your state and federal lawmakers.
This Action Item now covers Rep. Dingle’s new (sic) “Food Safety” bill, HR 2749, which is the new attempt to push a dangerous, food-freedom killing bill through Congress, so please send your messages again! Don’t forget every member of your family can send a message too!
And what does Dingle bill do… well, as soon as we tell you, we’ll be accused of “inaccuracy” by the do-nothing crowd since we call it as we see it. Here is what the “Writers Collective” on the No GM Food Forum has to say about it:
“HR 2749 is a strange bill in many ways. While the other “food safety” bills have been around since winter, allowing for much public discussion on the internet, HR 2749 has only suddenly appeared. It is a mutant conglomeration of the worst of the other bills, with the addition of one very original part – martial law… HR 2749 is both insane and cruel. And the deceptiveness of hiding a Patriot Act in it and the brutal rush to slip it through Congress are ANTI-democratic.”
Marshall law for food contamination? What???
Are you scared yet?
If not, you need your meds adjusted downwards!
This is horrifying and more than a little crazy.

Missing — Clarion Call for Food Freedom…
So where is the clarion call for health freedom here at Codex? Absent. We’ve had quite enough of that, haven’t we?
So we wrote a letter, as you may recall, to the “owner” of that Observer Seat reminding them that the instructions of the then-Codex Chair were to form a confederation of health freedom groups to allow participation in the process when we applied in 2006. That has not happened, of course.
Next, we wrote to the Chair of the Codex Commission, from the US, by the way, and asked her to seat us as observers. The answer was the same as the health freedom voice: thundering silence. But then the silence broke: a vicious, and wildly inaccurate letter was circulated by the organization which “has” the seat. Cowardly, they did not respond to us. Instead, they falsely accuse us of “extortion”, a criminal charge, by the way. Of course, we have written to them demanding a retraction.
See our Open Letter to the Codex Chairwoman: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=3005
Now, as you probably know, I am, by training, a Child, Adult and Adolescent Psychiatrist (who has practiced drug free medicine and psychiatry for my entire career) so I tend to think like a psychiatrist when weird or challenging things present themselves.
The ferocity (and inappropriateness) of this response suggests to me, thinking about what might be behind it, that we are looking at the product of fear. Fear that, because the organization in question is actually not doing its job representing health or freedom here that we might, in fact, be granted its seat.
Fear that, despite claims of longevity in this field, maybe the game is up and the fact that they are not representing anyone very well might become generally known.
From my point of view, to tell you the truth, the entire “movement” which calls itself the “Health Freedom Movement” has been doing a pretty dismal job. Your health freedoms and mine, your food freedoms and mine, your fight against the USDA, EPA, FDA and mine, your vaccination threat and mine, have been being eroded for decades, ever since the stunning victory of the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act which united consumers into a flying wedge that derailed Congress’ attempt to take away all of our supplements.
In the 10 years between that stunning victory (which was, in fact, only a victory in one area of many) and the time that General Bert and I decided that things were in such bad shape that we needed to close our private practice of medicine to protect health freedom here and abroad since NO ONE ELSE WAS DOING A VERY GOOD JOB OF IT, we were losing ground rapidly while the “Health Freedom Movement” presided over a series of losses.
We came on the scene with our unique way of working and you said, YES!
We developed strategic plans and started implementing them and you said, YES!
We traveled to Codex meetings and met with Delegates, then went to their countries and met with their decision makers and you said, YES!
We presented science to delegates and blocked the US move to allow fluoride in baby formula and then you and the American Dental Association said YES (they changed their policy and recommended NOT using fluoridated water for babies under 12 months old virtually upon the heels of that Codex decision).
And we keep going. We briefed the President of India and 6 weeks later there was a new bill with the power to protect 1.2 billion people from Codex.
We said, we need to help reclaim the production of food, create an Eco Demonstration Project, teach urban people how to grow their own food and you said, YES! You can click below to see a partial list of our accomplishments for your health freedom. They are innovative, effective and meet the emerging situation, not the past ones.
Meanwhile, with every innovation, the invective, disinformation and outright slander and liable grow stronger. You can understand why, of course: these people are simply outclassed and out-manouevered so, since the cannot see the value of joining together to create a strong health freedom movement that uses the skills and talents of us all, they attack.
If you want to see a response to some of their more idiotic and vitriolic attacks, you can visit “Truth Is Our Defense” at http://drrimatruthreports.com/?page_id=1805.
But be forewarned: there will be much more of this offal flinging around the Internet.
Here is my recommendation: write to the source of any allegations published about us and ask for the data, not more allegations, upon which those allegations rest. See what you get, and then send it to us. We always like a good laugh.
Here is an open letter we sent “leaders” of the Health Freedom movement a Open Letter about supporting your Right to Self-Shield; at the bottom of that posting we copied the letter we had sent to the Codex Health Freedom seat “owner” — you might want to read it to see if we were extorting anyone, or just exercising our Free Speech Right to call them to account for their failure to defend your rights.
Open Letter: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=2931
We are here at Codex. We are helping to reclaim the production of food. We have proposed the only innovative and effective option to mandatory vaccination or incarceration (click below and make sure you alert everyone you know), we are creating programs and options around the world to keep health free and keep free people healthy.
Your Right to Self-Shielding: http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=2752
Thanks for your support. Fasten your seat belts. The ride could get bumpy!
Remember: Health Freedom is Our First Freedom!
Yours in health and freedom,
