Barack Obama, our next President

The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) today called for Republican Sen. Roy Blunt to resign immediately. Sen. Blunt has admitted working with Monsanto lobbyists to write the Farmer Assurance Provision, dubbed the Monsanto Protection Act, a rider that strips federal courts of their power to stop Monsanto from planting unproven, potentially dangerous genetically engineered crops. Without any hearings, the provision was slipped into the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act 2013, and recently signed into law by President Obama.
“Roy Blunt should resign in disgrace,” said OCA National Director Ronnie Cummins.“The Monsanto Protection Act is an unconstitutional violation of the separation of powers. Judicial review is an essential element of U.S. law, providing a critical and impartial check on government decisions that may negatively impact human health, the environment or livelihoods. Though wrapped in a ‘farmer-friendly’ package, this corporate welfare earmark is simply a biotech industry ploy to continue to sell GE seeds even when a court of law has found they were illegally approved by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

No Surprize, "Does it seem coincidental that two of the Obama's biggest GMO supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto?," No; it looks like common practice of capitalist entrepreneurs --that's what they do--invest in companies that they think will be profitable for themselves and their shareholder partners. There is no evidence that Bill Gates and George Soros business ventures had anything to do with the Obama Administration or the FDA's policies-- Obama has pushed a recalcitrant Congress on passing GMO labeling laws and stronger protections for food industry 'whistleblowers'--those initiatives certainly did not please Monsanto and Big Agri-business;did it?

Corporatist Barack Obama signed the GMO bill, including the provision for Monsanato's poison, into law you idiot... HR 933 the provision dubbed the “Monsanto Protection Act.” It is Section 735 in the bill, the full text of which an uniformed idiot like yourself can be read here:

So you don't think an abortionist murdering late-term babies born alive and dispensing of them in the most barbaric ways not newsworthy?
Could it be the story hits too close to home and sheds a bad light on the liberal agenda of abortion?
There's no other reason I can think of.
It has become national news, but a segment of the population is still in the dark about this story. That's a tactic of propaganda.
The progagandists are just as guilty of not investigating and keeping silent about Benghazi.
The whistleblowers - the 3 survivors of Benghazi - are testifying this week. Their stories are probably not going to be good for this administration.
Neanderthals like lily only care about their own basic needs and will ignore atrocities when it suits the "agenda". They will lie, cover up and suppress news, which is why I left the Democrat Party years ago.

The Monsanto Protection Act, essentially both written by and benefiting Monsanto Corporation, has been signed into law by United States President Barack Obama.
The infamous Monsanto Corporation will benefit greatly from George Soros and Bill Gates directly from the bill, as obama essentially gives companies that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds immunity to the federal courts, among other things.
The bill states that even if future research shows that GMOs or GE seeds cause significant health problems, cancer, etc, anything, that the federal courts no longer have any power to stop their spread, use, or sales.
No. The bill states the federal courts can not block or make rulings until the USDA makes their determination.

Fenris the Big Bad Wolf, "You will never, EVER find a liberal phag who can give a coherent answer to the question: "how can you support aborting innocent babies," Not exactly; you can find conservatives and liberals who can agree that you can not legislate morality without risks and dangers of destroying the social order. Haven't legal moralists learned the lesson of Prohibition?(trying to ban alcohol set off one of the largest crime waves in U S history) ; Remember the lesson of the drug wars?. When you try to keep people from doing something not good for them or what they think will give them pleasure they'll want to try it more than ever. The best way to limit abortions is to make it legal, safe, honestly advertise and describe accurately its invasive procedure.

One has to wonder how Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri benefited by sliding in that nasty little rider that puts Monsanto above the law? Not unlike Judas Iscariot, Blunt used his position to betray those who trusted him, but it appears that the senator got more than 30 pieces of silver.

As an elected official, Senator Blunt is obligated to promote the wishes of the people. All of them, not just the ones with money.

Let’s go down the rabbit hole and explore why Blunt might have done such a thing.

Monsanto has its home base in St. Louis, Missouri, and here we can begin to see the connection between Blunt and the evil company.

Just a cursory search shows financial ties of nearly $350,000. To name just a few direct links between Monsanto and Blunt, the following donation amounts are from the website Open Secrets...

Hang on – there are a couple MORE links between Blunt and Monsanto,(not to mention other special interest groups like Phillip Morris, Altria, and Kraft). In fact, Blunt has a long, sordid history of slipping bills in that help out the big spenders, a lover, and his sons....

This Monsanto rider isn’t the first time Blunt has tried to help out a big donor. In 2003, literally hours after he was named whip for the House Republicans, he attempted a less successful stealth legislation attached to the 475 page bill that created the DHS for his buddies at Phillip Morris.....

Given the above, it probably comes as no surprise that the watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) bestowed upon Blunt a spot in the second annual report on the most corrupt members of Congress back in 2006 and then again in 2010. You can read the 2010 report on Blunt’s special interest pandering HERE.

So, Blunt was the architect of all of this sneaky little rider, slipped into HR 933. This doesn’t mean that the other members of Congress who voted for it are not complicit, however. The fact that President Obama does not have line-item veto authority doesn’t let him off the hook either. By refusing to send the entire bill back to be redrafted, every person who voted for this is guilty, as is President Obama.

5/5/2013 — 4.2M + 3.7M Earthquakes at Lava Hot Springs, Idaho — Dormant volcano movement

May 5, 2013 .. Two earthquakes at Lava Hot Springs, ID.*3 miles away*

More dormant volcano activity — no surprise at this point.

Here are my past posts on the dormant volcanic movement happening:

http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/...

http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/...

———————

Wondering why the USGS lists the nearest town as “Soda Springs”.. when clearly Lava Hot Springs is right there at the epicenter… I’m sure they might use the population density map as the reason to NOT list this town, but as someone who is interested in geology / volcanology / seismology , knowing this is the location, makes a HUGE difference in determining the actual cause of the movement.

For the general public, the USGS would just have you see this:

M4.2 – 28km W of Soda Springs, Idaho 2013-05-06 03:13:42 UTC

In reality, the screenshot shows you what is at the earthquake epicenter. Lava Hot Springs.

Here’s to DOWNPLAYING EARTHQUAKES….lol… hasn’t the USGS seen the Movie Dante’s Peak?

Stupid blame potus's bobbleheads.
Again, the ignorance amazes me! You've just admitted exactly what I said in my post. Reagan started everything. He created the monster known as "Saddam Hussein." He was Americas friend, as long as his Intel in the region were in our best interest. So much of a friend that we trained & armed his military.(under Reagan). When Bush sr gained office, he took Americas influence in the middle east to the next level. For the love of oil, though the blind will say,"we were just protecting our ally. Bush sr turned a friend into an enemy when he interfered in Iraq invading Kuwait in attempts to take over the oil field they both shared. Clinton just inherited both, Reagan's & Bush sr bullshit. The Arabs & Indians didn't take kind to American footprints on Muslim soil, which was what set Bin Laden off. You can act like the Bush's business dealings with Bin Laden had nothing to do with 9/11 if you want. When dealing in international affairs, there is no such thing as coincidence! Bottom line, Reagan created Saddam, Bush sr made him an enemy. Clinton destroyed any such capability of an Iraqi attack on American soil which was why there was no reason for America to invade Iraq. Bush sr interfering in Iraqs takeover of the oil field shared with Kuwait, sparked Osama Bin Laden & Al Qaeda's hatred for America, not to mention, Bush Jr had business dealings with Bin Laden up until 9/11. At the very least, Bush should be held an accomplice. Bush was even given specific instructions on what was to happen on 9/11. When the FBI & CIA tools Bush about the eventual hijackers, he told them to stop the investigation. Now do your homework & look up everything I said. You will only come to 1 conclusion, unless your insane!

No Surprize, "Barack Obama signed the GMO bill" But, Congress, using a usual Republican trick that hides any backroom deals with Big Ag,made an 'anonymous introduction of the Monsanto Protection rider ' into the large appropriation bill needed to be passed to avoid a government shut-down.-- no one in Congress was aware that the rider was even in the bill .(Obama signed the bill, but blame ought to be directed at Congress) "Since the act’s passing, more than 250,000 people have signed a petition opposing the provision and a rally, consisting largely of farmers organized by the Food Democracy Now network, protested outside the White House Wednesday. Not only has anger been directed at the Monsanto Protection Act’s content, but the way in which the provision was passed through Congress without appropriate review by the Agricultural or Judiciary Committees. The biotech rider instead was introduced anonymously as the larger bill progressed — little wonder food activists are accusing lobbyists and Congress members of backroom dealings." Don't blame Obama for offering enough 'rope' for Congressional republicans in the deep pockets of Big Ag to hang themselves . Check this out: http://www.salon.com/2013/03/27/how_the_monsa...

Had they forewarned the leaky Obama regime, Al Jazeera would've been running the story within 5 minutes of the Israeli call to the White House.
