"he problem here is that the “Monsanto Protection Act”(section 735) was attached (anonymously) as a rider to a short term spending bill (HR 933).“The President does not have line item veto power; it’s all or nothing. This is called a poison pill. As part of the short term spending bill, President Obama had to sign the resolution in order to prevent the federal government from shutting down today, March 27, when the current funding was set to expire. He doesn’t get to cherry pick what parts he signs into law. He either lets the government shut down or he signs the poison pill.

(snip)

That little rider your little conspiracy theory is up in arms about does not protect Monsanto from prosecution. What the rider does is simple. To plant a restricted crop, the farmer needs to have permission from the federal government. The bill does not change that part because the farmer always needed permission to plant restricted crops.

Where the bill comes into play is right now. If a farmer has permission to plant restricted crops, but the paperwork gets lost somewhere, the farmer is protected from lawsuit. As long as he can prove he has permission beforehand, he will not get sued or anything of the sort. Before, if a farmer is caught planting restricted crops without permission, he could face fines and be ordered to destroy the crops. It does not matter if the farmer gets permission before hand.

Nowhere in that rider does it give Cargill blanket protection from lawsuit."

Now the WH thinks it is offensive to ask about Obama's actions on 9/11/12. Pfeiffer stated so on a Sunday morning show that it was offensive to ask what the POTUS was doing during a crisis.
A few credibility problems with the WH .
The original claim was Obama spoke to none of his department heads during the crisis. Carney hadn't at this time pulled out "I read it in the paper" defense. This was to allow Obama denial plausibility.
However, when pressed by CNS asking Carney why Obama did not call at least Clinton, Carney reluctantly told CNS he had called Hilary.

Mutant Seeds for Mesopotamia

October 15, 2008

One would think that Iraqi farmers, now prospering under "freedom" and "democracy," would be able to plant the seeds of their choosing, but that choice, under little-known Order 81, would be illegal.

But first, it is important to set the context. Most people have never heard of the infamous "100 Orders," but they help explain why the majority of Iraqis remain opposed to foreign occupation. The 100 Orders allow multinational corporations to basically privatize an entire nation, and this degree of foreign and private control has not been witnessed since the days of the British East India Company and its extraterritoriality treaties.

A few examples of the 100 Orders are illuminating:

Order 39 allows for the tax-free remittance of all corporate profits.
Order 17 grants foreign contractors, including private security firms, immunity from Iraq's laws.
Orders 57 and 77 ensure the implementation of the orders by placing U.S.-appointed auditors and inspector general in every government ministry, with five-year terms and with sweeping authority over contracts, programs, employees and regulations.

Back to one of the most blatant orders of all: Order 81. Under this mandate, Iraq's commercial farmers must now buy "registered seeds." These are normally imported by Monsanto, Cargill and the World Wide Wheat Company. Unfortunately, these registered seeds are "terminator" seeds, meaning "sterile." Imagine if all human men were infertile, and in order to reproduce women needed to buy sperm cells at a sperm bank. In agricultural terms, terminator seeds represent the same kind of sterility.

Terminator seeds have no agricultural value other than creating corporate monopolies.

What makes this Order 81 even more outrageous is that Iraqi farmers have been saving wheat and barley seeds since at least 4000 BC, when irrigated agriculture first emerged, and probably even to about 8000 BC, when wheat was first domesticated. Mesopotamia's farmers have now been trumped by white-smocked, corporate bio-engineers from Florida who strive to replace hundreds of natural varieties with a handful of genetically scrambled hybrids.

Where does such hubris come from? It comes from the entire mission surrounding the invasion of Iraq, which, upon closer inspection, had been planned years in advance by a faction of "neo-cons" who adopted Leon Trotsky's glorification of the state, his theory "permanent revolution," and his goal of exporting revolution worldwide. The neo-con revolution aims to alter the economic, political and cultural foundations of nations on the other side of the planet (rejecting old-fashioned notions of self-determination, popular sovereignty and even the nation-state system). This mission includes the transformation of agriculture and the establishment of "food control" over local populations.

Order 81 fits into this revolutionary program, and it is quite diabolical upon closer inspection. First, it forces Iraq's commercial farmers to use registered terminator seeds (the "protected variety"). Then it defines natural seeds as illegal (the "infringing variety"), in a classic Orwellian turn of language.

You are complete idiot... A verifiable loser frontporchmonkey...

Obama, while on the campaign trail in 2008, was promising transparency in government, was claiming that every person has the right to know what’s in his food (GMO labeling).

But clearly, that was all cover and fluff. He was lying through his teeth and he knew it. He’d been vetted for the presidency, and he knew the job entailed joining Monsanto and the larger Globalist agenda as a front man.

He hasn’t changed over the past four years. He’s been a covert agent since the beginning.

Imposter. Charlatan. These words fit Obama. He’s pretended, like Clinton, to care, but he doesn’t. He doesn’t care that GMO food is taking over the country and the world. He wants it to happen. He’s always wanted it to happen.

The sitting president of the United States, Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow, among others, are prepared to do whatever is necessary to make GMO food dominate America.

They intend, through Monsanto-gene drift among millions of plants in ag fields, through increased planting of GMO crops, and through introduction of still more GMO crops, to wrap up the USA in genetically engineered food.

Obama is on board. He’s always been on board.

He is the GMO president.

Her mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, explained on Facebook that Kaitlyn began a “mutual consenting” relationship with a girl at Sebastian River High School who was about three years younger. The parents of the younger girl were upset by the situation and contacted police, she wrote.

Kaitlyn has until Friday to accept or reject a plea deal of two years house arrest and one year probation, according to her mother.

<quoted text>Hey Sonic did you watch this: O'bama spokes idiot says the law is irrelevant: The IRS scandal was one of the topics White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer discussed with George Stephanopoulos on This Week. While Pfeiffer agreed the IRS’ actions were “inexcusable,” he told the ABC host that the, in this case, the legality of the issue is “irrelevant.”
Stephanopoulos prefaced his question by noting the discussion about legality from Friday’s congressional hearing, during which outgoing IRS commissioner Steven Miller testified.
“I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant,” Pfeiffer responded.“The activity was outrageous and inexcusable, and it was stopped and it needs to be fixed so we ensure it never happens again.”
“You don’t really mean the law is irrelevant, do you?” Stephanopoulos followed up.
“What I mean is, whether it’s legal or illegal is not important to the fact that the conduct doesn’t matter,” Pfeiffer said.“The Department of Justice has said they’re looking into the legality of this. The president is not going to wait for that. We have to make sure it doesn’t happen again, regardless of how that turns out.”
That guy that speaks for O'bama--he was a darling yesterday wasn't he?

Statutory rape charges against consenting teenagers seems ridiculous to me, no matter the sexual orientation. This is classic police state mentality; now this girl will be labeled a sex offender for life, lumped in with all the rest of the really heinous child molesters and rapists; many of whom live in the woods in the Orlando area because they aren't allowed to live anywhere. It's a definite dilemma. In a documentary the other night; a man of 18 was charged with statutory rape and sentenced to 8 years in prison for having consensual sex with his girlfriend who was 15. He's labeled a sex offender for life. It's not right, there are different categories.
