When one reads on certain blogs that we’ve had not a bad year overall and Gordo is getting to grips with the internationally induced troubles in the UK, one weeps at the chutzpah when everyday the tale emerges of our woes and the utter corruption of government.
You need go no further than DK’s quoting and developing of EU Referendum’s excellent bit of research on one Rajendra K Pachuri, Director of IPCC. It’s too long to run here but just work your way down the article and it says what we need to know about the wheels within wheels and the development aid scam.
Brown will claim, in his New Year message, that we are out of the recession and it’s all plain sailing ahead. People will swallow that guff in the same way drowning men will clutch at straws. It might even score him a hung parliament. The reality is a bit different and it depends how far you wish to go and how much the brain can handle as to the true state of affairs. Let me throw in some random snippets:
First the Svalbad Seed Bank – here is the sanitized version, claiming the funding came from the Norwegian government. The vault at Svalbard is similar to an existing seed bank in Sussex, England, about an hour outside London. The British vault, called the Millennium Seed Bank, is part of a scientific project that works with wild plants, as opposed to the seeds of crops.
The funding for Svalsbad actually looks this way:
The first notable point is who is sponsoring the doomsday seed vault. Here joining the Norwegians are, as noted, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; the US agribusiness giant DuPont/Pioneer Hi-Bred, one of the world’s largest owners of patented genetically-modified (GMO) plant seeds and related agrichemicals; Syngenta, the Swiss-based major GMO seed and agrichemicals company through its Syngenta Foundation; the Rockefeller Foundation, the private group who created the “gene revolution with over $100 million of seed money since the 1970’s; CGIAR, the global network created by the Rockefeller Foundation to promote its ideal of genetic purity through agriculture change.
Not clandestine in itself, even though it foresees coming calamity. The Independent June 19, 2008, said:
UK Ministers have told The Independent that rocketing food prices and food shortages in the world’s poorest countries mean the time is right to relax Britain’s policy on use of GM (gene modified) crops.
This followed a series of meetings – one was that of Environment minister Phil Woolas who held preliminary talks with the Agricultural Biotechnology Council, an umbrella group formed in 2000 to promote the role of biotechnology in agriculture. It is run by representatives from the companies Monsanto, Bayer CropSciences, BASF, Dow AgroSciences, Pioneer, DuPont and Syngenta (a member of Rockefeller´s Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research (CGIAR).
Going back even further:
John H. Davis had been Assistant Agriculture Secretary under President Dwight Eisenhower in the early 1950’s. He left Washington in 1955 and went to the Harvard Graduate School of Business, an unusual place for an agriculture expert in those days. He had a clear strategy.
IIn 1956, Davis wrote an article in the Harvard Business Review in which he declared that “the only way to solve the so-called farm problem once and for all, and avoid cumbersome government programs, is to progress from agriculture to agribusiness.” He knew precisely what he had in mind, though few others had a clue back then— a revolution in agriculture production that would concentrate control of the food chain in corporate multinational hands, away from the traditional family farmer.
The way to go was in hybrid seeds:
One vital aspect of hybrid seeds was their lack of reproductive capacity. Hybrids had a built in protection against multiplication. Unlike normal open pollinated species whose seed gave yields similar to its parents, the yield of the seed borne by hybrid plants was significantly lower than that of the first generation.
That declining yield characteristic of hybrids meant farmers must normally buy seed every year in order to obtain high yields. Moreover, the lower yield of the second generation eliminated the trade in seed that was often done by seed producers without the breeder’s authorization. It prevented the redistribution of the commercial crop seed by middlemen.
If the large multinational seed companies were able to control the parental seed lines in house, no competitor or farmer would be able to produce the hybrid. The global concentration of hybrid seed patents into a handful of giant seed companies, led by DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred and Monsanto’s Dekalb laid the ground for the later GMO seed revolution.
In Mexico, for example:
The mono-culture cultivation of new hybrid seed varieties decreased soil fertility and yields over time. The first results were impressive: double or even triple yields for some crops such as wheat and later corn in Mexico. That soon faded.
The Green Revolution was typically accompanied by large irrigation projects which often included World Bank loans to construct huge new dams, and flood previously settled areas and fertile farmland in the process. Also, super-wheat produced greater yields by saturating the soil with huge amounts of fertilizer per acre, the fertilizer being the product of nitrates and petroleum, commodities controlled by the Rockefeller-dominated Seven Sisters major oil companies.
With huge quantities of herbicides and pesticides also being used, developing nations did not have the money for these, let alone the small farmers. The solution to most of us, even given that we accept this gameplan, would be to heavily discount the chemicals and seed stocks to enable local farms to afford agriculture.
That’s not what happened. Large landowners got credit via the World Bank and special loans by Chase Bank and other large New York banks, backed by US Government guarantees. For the smaller peasants the situation worked differently. They had to borrow money from the private sector in developed nations at high interest rates. Thus any yield merely paid off the interest on loans.
And so to today:
The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa [AGRA] is doing the same sort of thing. Who are they? Kofi Annan is chairman, then there are South African, Strive Masiyiwa who is a Trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation, Sylvia M. Mathews of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Mamphela Ramphele, former Managing Director of the World Bank (2000 – 2006), Rajiv J. Shah of the Gates Foundation, Nadya K. Shmavonian of the Rockefeller Foundation, Roy Steiner of the Gates Foundation, Gary Toenniessen the Managing Director of the Rockefeller Foundation and Akinwumi Adesina, Associate Director, Rockefeller Foundation, Peter Matlon, Managing Director, Rockefeller Foundation; Joseph De Vries, Director of the Programme for Africa’s Seed Systems and Associate Director, Rockefeller foundation; Akinwumi Adesina, Associate Director, Rockefeller Foundation.
Look who else is involved:
Monsanto is also in there, especially in South Africa with widely planted GMO and hybrid crops, has a smallholders’ programme known as the ‘Seeds of Hope’ Campaign, which is introducing a green revolution package to small scale poor farmers, followed, of course, by Monsanto’s patented GMO seeds.
Syngenta AG of Switzerland is pouring millions of dollars into a new greenhouse facility in Nairobi, to develop GMO insect resistant maize. Syngenta is a part of CGIAR as well.
The Svalbard project is run by an organization called the Global Crop Diversity Trust (GCDT), founded by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and Bioversity International (formerly the International Plant Genetic Research Institute), an offshoot of the CGIAR.
The Global Crop Diversity Trust is based in Rome, chaired by Margaret Catley-Carlson a Canadian also on the advisory board of Group Suez Lyonnaise des Eaux, one of the world’s largest private water companies. Catley-Carlson was also president until 1998 of the New York-based Population Council, John D. Rockefeller’s population reduction organization, through “family planning,” birth control devices and sterilization projects in the developing and undeveloped nations.
The sheer scale of all this is mindboggling.
Global Crop Diversity Trust Donors or financial angels include Rockefeller and Gates, plus DuPont-Pioneer Hi-Bred, Syngenta of Basle Switzerland, CGIAR and the State Department’s energetically pro-GMO agency for development aid, USAID.
Board members include former Bank of America executive and present head of the Hollywood DreamWorks Animation, Lewis Coleman who is also the lead Board Director of Northrup Grumman Corporation, one of America’s largest military industry Pentagon contractors.
Then there is Jorio Dauster, Board Chairman of Brasil Ecodiesel and former Ambassador of Brazil to the European Union, Chief Negotiator of Brazil’s foreign debt for the Ministry of Finance, as well as former President of the Brazilian Coffee Institute and Coordinator of the Project for the Modernization of Brazil’s Patent System, which involves legalizing patents on seeds which are genetically modified which were, until recently, forbidden by Brazil law.
It goes on and on.
Dr. Mangala Rai of India is the Secretary of India’s Department of Agricultural Research and Education (DARE), and Director General of the Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR), Board Member of the Rockefeller Foundation’s International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), which promoted the world’s first major GMO experiment “Golden Rice”.
And so on.
Since early in 2007 Monsanto holds world patent rights together with the United States Government for plant so-called ‘Terminator’ or Genetic Use Restriction Technology (GURT). Terminator is an ominous technology by which a patented commercial seed commits ‘suicide’ after one harvest. The implications are pretty clear for farmers worldwide.
Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical developed and proliferated dioxin, PCBs and Agent Orange. The world’s most widespread herbicide, glyphosate is the essential ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide that is tied to purchase of most Monsanto genetically engineered seeds and it’s toxic when it seeps into drinking water. Denmark banned glyphosate in 2003.
The UN’s FAO lists some 1400 seed banks around the world, the largest being held by the United States Government plus China, Russia, Japan, India, South Korea, Germany and Canada. CGIAR operates a chain of seed banks in select centers around the world and is a Rockefeller project. Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood International was an intimate of the Rockefeller family, creating The Negro Project in 1939, based in Harlem.
Population control is woven in:
California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 produced genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, after which Epicyte was acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, which financed the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.
In the 1990’s the UN’s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45 against Tetanus but the vaccine was not given to men or boys.
Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization had vaccine samples tested, revealing that the Tetanus vaccine being distributed by the WHO to women of child-bearing age contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy.
These are the companies and organizations invoved in Svalbad.
The European Commission, backed by Britain and other EU nations, believes that lifting the ban on GM foods could help to solve the global food crisis. Despite the talk of a food crisis and the rapidly increased food prices for basic grains and meats, SE Asia had record harvests last year, aso in China and India.
Yet rice is now reported as an endangered crop and you can see rice prices on your own supermarket shelves.
In Canada in 2007 the wheat production went down by 4-5% – due to too much rain (not drought) – whereas barley production went up. Globally the CWB predicted that world wheat production in 2007 levels would increase to 615 million tonnes (up from 594 million tonnes in 2006).
Meanwhie, in the financial markets, it is a closed game. This article cannot encompass all that in its scope today.
Against the scenario presented above, the World Bank lists the effect of biofuels as an important contributor to higher food prices. The FAO/ECMB has reported that world land usage for agriculture has declined since the 1980s, and subsidies outside the United States and EU have dropped since the year 2004, leaving supply, while sufficient to meet 2004 needs, vulnerable when the United States began converting agricultural commodities to biofuels. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, global wheat imports and stocks have decreased, domestic consumption has stagnated, and world wheat production has decreased from 2006 to 2008.
So whom exactly does one believe? And control of food is not a new ploy in the least. Samizdata had this comment:
Old Samizdatistas will remember the Great Socialist Administration of Clement Attlee, which deliberately retained, and indeed increased the severity of, rationing of food and basic necessities using a dubious mercantilist justification (if we starve the population and clothe them in rags, imports will be reduced thus improving our balance of trade). They may also remember the architect of this great economic miracle was the [wealthy] communist Stafford Cripps who, like most [wealthy] communists, thinks denial and poverty strengthen the character.
Johnathan Pearce, in his article, had called for allowing market forces to prevail – a noble cause but not one which is likely in the next two generations at least, given the stranglehold by the major food giants. In fact a Cripps type scenario is precisely what The Times predicted:
The British people face wartime rations and a vegetarian diet in the event of a world food shortage, a new official assessment on the UK’s food security suggests today. Even though the nation is 73 per cent self-sufficient in food production, higher than during the 1950s, the food chain is at risk from global influences such as a worldwide increase in population, climate change bringing extreme weather patterns, higher oil prices and more crops being grown for bio-fuel instead of food.
Supplies in future may also be disrupted by animal disease outbreaks, disruption of power supplies, trade disputes and interruptions for shipping and at ports. The UK however has one of the highest cereal production capabilities in the world with seven tonnes grown per hectare, compared a world average of 3.3 tonnes per hectare.
In the event of an extreme event, cereal crops would be used to feed the nation and ensure that each person received sufficient daily calories. But people would have to consume less — the average number of calories eaten per day in the early 1960s was about 2,100, whereas the most recent figure compiled by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation is 2,800.
So, what we get out of this is that Britain is actually more than capable of feeding itself but “global factors” give our government the lever to ensure that everyone will have to eat a smaller ration of inferior food to survive. And who has caused those global factors in the first place? Read the article above.
Meanwhile, farms continue to become world traded commodities:
Dubai World, the troubled state-owned conglomerate whose financial difficulties triggered a crisis on world stock markets, is reportedly trying to buy farms in New Zealand, ringing alarm bells there Friday. The Federated Farmers organization, which lobbies for farmers, warned its members to undertake strict due diligence before agreeing to sell in the light of reports that scheduled deposits had not been made.
And the erroneous delusion that the government looks after your best interests can be seen in this, via Lord T:
Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who chairs the Senate subcommittee that oversees the Interior Department, has scuttled plans to build 13 multi-million dollar solar plants and wind farms on a million acres in California’s Mojave Desert proposed as a national monument. Feinstein’s move will severely complicate her state’s quixotic effort to obtain a third of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
Thus, if she does not allow this and new fuel sources are the only alternative, then what is the solution?
Yes – biofuels.
Biofuels are largely a government-sponsored scam. With a few exceptions (see below), biofuels produce no net increase in energy output, and they cause food shortages while creating strong economic incentives for the destruction of the very rainforests we desperately need to stabilize the climate!
Meanwhile, the USDA has predicted record soybean and corn harvests whilst also saying:
Specifically, the USDA has declared half the counties in the Midwest to be primary disaster areas, including 274 counties in the last 30 days alone. These designations are based on the criteria of a minimum of 30 percent loss in the value of at least one crop in the county.
So why the mixed messages by governments who say that there are record crops and yet, in almost the same breath, that we aso face crop disasters? Perhaps the Indian situation gives a clue here:
All this adds up to an unplanned burden on government finances. The Reserve Bank of India sounded a warning in a recent report that deficient monsoons will not only affect agriculture output and put pressure on food prices, but raise demand for more subsidies and relief measures and thus push up fiscal deficit. The Central Statistical Organization, too, says the effect of drought has not been reflected in the first quarter data. It is certainly going to show up in the coming quarters.
Yes – money and the collapse of the indigenous unit shoud the food crisis get out of hand. It is meant to be milked for its profits, not to bring the whole house of cards down.
What is the end game in all this wheeling and dealing, scamming and outright lying?
In the end, your guess is as good as mine. In a comment on my recent post on internet censorship, Jeff Taylor, of The Economic Voice, said:
James, I don’t think the end aim would be to ban any sites. No, the ideal end aim would be to prevent all sites appearing on the Internet unless the requisite annual licence had been applied for, the application fully scrutinised for compliance, and the (large) licence fee paid. Now that would be the control every government would want to see and are probably striving for.
There are different scenarios – that it is all about profit, controlling and cashing in new crises – and then there is the theory that these crises are helped along a bit and even created. This is where many who’ve agreed with the thrust of the post to this point will now part company with me because they simply cannot see anything beyond profit as a motive.
I beg to differ and say that ideology plays a very big part in this. What’s the difference between the artificially labelled Lefty and the artificially labelled Rightwinger? The Rightwinger is driven by the profit motive; the eftwinger is driven by ideology, funded by the profit motive. Both enable oligarchies to run things.
Given the names mentioned above, it is therefore interesting that the generally accepted list of leaders of the NWO is:
Astor, Bundy, Collins, DuPont, Freeman, Kennedy, Li, Onassis, Reynolds, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Russell, Van Duyn
Quite where the Merovingian royal families fit in I’m not sure. And the purpose? Well, you could read any website concerned with the Masons, the Illuminati and their satanic antecedents but more acceptable to the average reader of this blog is to simply quote Rockefeller:
In 1962, “The Future of Federalism” by Nelson Rockefeller was published, claiming that current events compellingly demand a “new world order.” He said there was: “A fever of nationalism…but the nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks…These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order… Sooner perhaps than we may realize…there will evolve the bases for a federal structure of the free world.”
On July 26, 1968, Nelson Rockefeller pledged that “as President, he would work toward international creation of a new world order.”
In 1973, Council on Foreign Relations stalwart, David Rockefeller, founded a new organization called the Trilateral Commission. He invited future President Jimmy Carter to become one of the founding members. Zbigniew Brzezinski was the organization’s first director.
On Aug. 10, he wrote an article for the “New York Times” describing his recent visit to Red China: “Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing a more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community purpose.”
In 1987, “The Secret Constitution and the Need for Constitutional Change” was sponsored in part by the Rockefeller Foundation. In it, author Arthur S. Miller wrote:
“…a pervasive system of thought control exists in the United States…the citizenry is indoctrinated by employment of the mass media and the system of public education…people are told what to think about…a new vision is required to plan and manage the future, a global vision that will transcend national boundaries and eliminate the poison of nationalistic solutions…a new Constitution is necessary.”
The purpose of those quotes and referring you to the Al Gore/Maurice Strong climate change post, with its Shamballa symbolism was twofod – to show the same old names cropping up all the time, e.g. Kofi Annan and to ilustrate the agenda and that brings us back to the Green Movement and food production.
As I wrote in that post, “I deliberately avoided all the occult and Christian sites for a link because I’m not trying to establish anything other than that there is a motif running through the leaders of countries’ dealings with each other which is more than balance sheets and corporate meetings. It is not Christian in nature but relativistic in that it seeks to pay lip service to a melting pot of religions with a ‘World Teacher’ at its helm.”
There is a word I’m skirting around here and that word is Insanity.
We’re not talking about mentally disturbed young men and women in cults but with the movers and shakers of the world, having no spiritual side to their natures so, finding that the “reasonable rate of return” they all subscribe to is hollow in any personal, ideological sense, they hitch their wagon to the nwo-eco-religion and it fulfils all functions of the deity in a now almost deChristianized western world.
These people are ideologues and they fall equally on the Left and Right – it is a much higher ideology than mere redistribution of wealth to the poor. It is far more insidious because it is being implemented by world leaders in every field, from agriculture through to the judiciaries through to Common Purpose.
These people are insane in the worst possible way – they appear to be eminently sane in their public personae and in their seemingly rational “solutions” for crises arising elsewhere but impinging here but in fact, they are right in there, at ground zero, in the fomenting of and the bubbling along of crises, the necessity for solution of which places the trump cards in their hands and enables their globalist agenda to move one step closer to fruition.
