2013: “Monsanto Protection Act” Dropped from Senate Bill to Delight of GMO Critics

Opponents of genetically modified organisms (GMO) celebrated this week after the U.S. Senate dropped a controversial provision allowing agricultural companies to ignore judicial rulings. The Farmers Assurance Provision, which critics labeled the “Monsanto Protection Act,” would have allowed biotechnology companies like Monsanto to sell GMO seeds to farmers even after a court blocked their sale. But members of the Senate prevented the plan from being included in a House continuing resolution used to keep the government-funded. “This is a victory for all those who think special interests shouldn’t get special deals,” Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) said in a statement. “This secret rider, which was slipped into a must-pass spending bill earlier this year, instructed the Secretary of Agriculture to allow GMO crops to be cultivated and sold even when our courts had found they posed a potential risk to farmers of nearby crops, the environment, and human health.” Dave Murphy, executive director […] Read More

Mark Warner: ‘Get Me One More Glass of Wine and I Will Tell You Stuff Only Mueller and I Know’

by Cristina Laila June 24, 2018 Democrat Senator and Vice Chairman of the Senate Intel Committee, Mark Warner was overheard telling people at a Dem fundraiser Friday night, “If you get me one more glass of wine, I’ll tell you stuff only Bob Mueller and I know. If you think you’ve seen wild stuff so far, buckle up. It’s going to be a wild couple of months.” Senator Warner (D-VA) is the same guy who tried to set up a secret meeting with dossier author, Christopher Steele; he needs to be thrown off of the Senate Intel Committee immediately.  Vice Chairman of Senate Intel Committee, Mark Warner (D-VA) Politico reported: SEN. MARK WARNER (D-Va.) hosted a dinner Friday night for more than 100 guests at his house on Martha’s Vineyard as part of the DSCC’S annual Majority Trust retreat. OVERHEARD: Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, joking to the crowd: “If […] Read More

Congressman Who Voted For Drug Testing Food Stamp Recipients Busted For Cocaine

Representative Trey Radel was a major proponent of Republican legislation to make food stamp recipients submit to drug tests before receiving assistance. The proposal for those on food stamps to urinate in cups to prove they’re not on drugs received widespread praise from Republicans. But only a month after he backed the proposal, police busted the Florida Republican on a charge of cocaine possession. That’s right, the Republican politician who wanted to drug test poor people – those tests incurring huge tax-payer expenses – was himself using drugs. “It’s really interesting it came on the heels of Republicans voting on everyone who had access to food stamps get drug tested,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said to BuzzFeed. “It’s like, what?” The House approved an amendment by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), back in the summer of 2013, that allowed states to decide whether or not to test people on food stamps. The […] Read More

Grayson, Toomey lead in small-donor funding in competitive Senate races

The 2016 presidential candidates are well ensconced in the money race, but they are not the only ones infected with donation fever. Candidates in competitive Senate races are trying to raise as much money as they possibly can, while also seeking to boast that they receive more small-dollar donations, a sign that they are more in touch with voters and the grassroots. Thus far, it looks like Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) have the most boasting to do. Among major candidates in competitive Senate races, Grayson received the largest proportion of his funds from small-dollar donations (under $200) at 47 percent, or almost $213,000 out of nearly $454,000 raised. Toomey, on the other hand, has the largest dollar amount raised from small donations, at just under $1.6 million. But he also raised the most in total, nearly $13.8 million, so his small-donation share is just 11 percent. […] Read More

$200 Million Went to House Members to Pass Fast Track for TPP – Here’s Who Took the Cash

Source: Occupy By Paola Casale Many think our government is for sale. However, by taking a look at the facts below provided by Open Secrets, it is easy to understand where they are coming from. Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties. TPA limits Congress’ ability to better a trade deal by subjecting members of Congress to 90 days of reviewing the trade agreement, prohibiting any amendments on the implementing legislation, and giving them an up or down vote. TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition. John Boehner (R-OH) […] Read More

TPP Death Pool: more Pharmaceutical Destruction is Coming

Jon Rappoport http://www.activistpost.com June 2, 2015 (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.) “After any agreement is achieved between high-level criminals, there are two basic phases. First, conflicts arise, and the settlements are crude and sometimes painful. Second, the criminal parties realize, like the ‘gentlemen’ they are, that the jackpot they are sharing is big enough for everyone. So they unify their stance. They focus in on their real target: the public.” —The Underground, Jon Rappoport Question: “Who said that drug was safe? Where did that assessment come from? People are dropping like flies.” Answer: “We all said it was safe. Remember? All twelve members of the TPP. We all agreed. So now we have to stick to our guns. Admit nothing. Keep your mouth shut.” This “trade treaty,” the TPP, will, if passed, eventually morph into a close-knit international collective of government agencies that […] Read More

While you wern’t looking Congress endorsed Global ID cards

This week the US House passed the “Girls Count Act “(S. 802), legislation that already passed the Senate and so was sent  directly to the President for his signature. This legislation passed the House last November, but was not  taken up by the Senate at that time. So why should supporters of individual liberty and limited goverment care about a bill designed to promote the rights of girls in developing countries? Well,as I wrote last year: Congress has no more authority to promote the rights of girls in developing countries than it does for any other foreign aid program. Those who oppose National or International ID cards should also oppose this legislation.  This is because H.R. 3398 made it official policy of the United States Government to work with “multinational organizations” (such as the World Bank and the United Nations) to “….to enact, implement, and enforce laws that specifically […] Read More

Why the Right-Wing Is as Obsessed with Brainwashing Your Kid as With Looting Social Security

We must teach our children US history accurately and inform the world about the essentials of human rights. Sure, the war on education helps Republican lawmakers destroy unions and slash government spending, but it’s our history of progressive change that makes Conservatives hate accurate depictions of our past. Just think about Social Security, The New Deal, freeing the slaves, or child labor laws… all represent great turning points in our nation that progressives made possible. The fact is, our entire history – from our revolution to healthcare reform – is filled with progressive accomplishments, and it’s hard to sell the Conservative brand to people who know that history. Many of the today’s biggest political issues, like our privacy rights, would not even be up for debate today had it not been for the attack on education. If more Americans had had a strong understanding of our history, George W. […] Read More
