Monsanto leading super-secret 'above Congress' Obama trade scheme to outlaw GMO labeling worldwide

I read an article this morning that really got my blood pumping about the issue of GMOs.  The article is copied and sourced below this post.  Natural News is one of my regular go to's for information and I trust it's information for the most part as they are fighting the good fight to protect our basic rights by keeping us informed of what is happening in the world while also offering solutions that we can use to protect ourselves, heal ourselves.

If this most recent article is even remotely correct we as a people have to pay attention and we must refuse to accept this.  For years we have been being poisoned by our food and medicines by doctors we trust to treat and cure us of the many diseases that have effected us in record breaking numbers, increasing over the past 20 years to unbelievable, unacceptable numbers of lives affected and taken.

Everyone of us is either fighting some sort of condition or knows someone who is or who has lost the fight.  It is no coincidence that we all have or know someone who has cancer today.  No study is needed even thought many are available to show the connection between pharmaceuticals, the toxins in our food, personal care products, water, air and our current cancer rates.  For anyone of us to sit back and pretend that this is not happening is just insane.  Or is it? I believe that our denial stems from more than just fear of admitting to ourselves that this is and has been happening, while that is a big part of this for many of us an equal and even bigger part is the effect of the chemicals on our mental state.  I dare any and all of you reading this to detox for one month, just try it please.  Disconnect from all the drugs they are feeding us, choose an organic detox of your choice.  Be it juicing organic fruits and veggies, only eating organics whole foods, stop using all the personal care products that have ingredients listed as carcinogens on this site... http://www.ewg.org/skindeep and see how you feel in 30 days about what is taking place.

In regards to the fear side of this, it is only in facing our fears and standing up to them that we realize our own power to change things.  Part of feeling powerless to change things is being imprisoned by our fears.  We are massive in numbers, we are the people, we have God given basic human rights, this is OUR PLANET! We belong here and no one has the right to govern us, control us and strip us of our basic human rights.  If this article is true do you all realize that I could be jailed just for speaking on this?!  So not only will our right to decide what foods we eat will be taken away so will our freedom of speech.  Will that encourage me to not speak on the issues? Absolutely not, they can take away my rights, however I am not giving them up.  If that means facing punishment for standing strong in my rights so be it, the alternative is a far worse punishment if you ask me.  Giving in and giving up and allowing this to happen is a far greater self inflicted punishment to me.

Are my thoughts on this drastic in nature? No more drastic than what they have been doing to us for years now.  It is our thinking that anyone who speaks up on this is a conspiracy theorist that is allowing this to continue, we should all be speaking up, we all have a voice and together our voices are strong.  If you still live in the land of "there are no conspiracy's" it is time to WAKE UP!

At first it is scary to wake up, I know I did it.  I was filled with anger towards the system set in place to protect us all, then I was angry at myself for not paying attention for all these years.  I remember in the 90s riding in the car with my husband at the time and saying to him... "something is wrong, I am in a constant daze, I cannot focus, I just don't feel right." I went to the doctor several times trying to find out what was wrong, why I felt so disoriented only to get no answers.  It wasn't until recently in the past couple of years of waking up and researching the history of GMO's, additives, preservatives that I learned it was in the 90s when they really started hitting us in our food supply with all these chemicals.  I remembered so clearly when I first started feeling that dumbed down effect.  I have my mind back now that I have stopped partaking in those chemicals.  I also have my courage back, my confidence in my ability to effect change.  I have been sent hate mail on Facebook, called names for voicing my opinion on these subjects but only by one person, the rest of my mail has come in love and support.  So I remind myself when attacked verbally of how scared I was when faced with these truths initially and offer love and prayer for the person attacking me and do not personalize it one little bit.

Once I passed the initial fear and dug deeper to find solutions to protect myself and began using my voice to share that here and with everyone I know I realize my own power, the fear went away and I found ways to continue to face any fears I have through prayer, meditation, healthy foods, connections with like minded souls, etc...  I have realized since that so many more are awake, there are millions of awake souls on the planet who are using their own voice to awaken the rest of us like I am here. And most of us have the same message... Do not fear, it is fear that paralyzes us and keeps us controlled.  Our Governments work FOR US, while they have forgotten this and taken up a new job taking orders from big corporations we are here to remind them who they really work for, they work for us!

In your day to day work, do you take orders from you employees that will damage your business? No you do not.  The same applies here, if the Governments that work for us are attempting to destroy everything we hired them to protect should we listen to them? Just like they forgot who they work for so did many of us, they work for YOU!  Laws against gardening our own foods? Is that humane? Is that what we hired them for? No it is not, we have every right to plant gardens on our own land and choose to only eat organic foods free of poisons.  Should we allow that right to be taken from us because we do not want to do the work to grow our own food or fear them in doing so? Why would we continue to buy from companies that support GMO's or are owned by GMO monsters like Monsanto?  We have choices, we are much larger in numbers than they and no violence is even needed on our part, it is in peace that we win.  Take Latvia for example, this article I wrote over a year ago is such inspiration to the power of peace.

We have so much more power than we acknowledge.  Each of us has the right to live a happy, healthy life.  We have the right to freedom, every person on this planet has this right it is not limited to one Country, in fact it is long past due time we stop thinking of ourselves as separated by borders, flags and governments.  We are the people, all of us belong to this planet and we all want the same basic things in life... To live a happy healthy life, to express ourselves freely.  No matter what our religious or spiritual beliefs may be we all want peace and freedom to believe those beliefs.  This is a time of acceptance, accept your neighbors differences, in fact celebrate our differences as it is separation that is their greatest tool in keeping us divided and pointing our focus on each other rather than on those that are committing these horrible crimes against us all.  What we wish for others we surely are wishing for ourselves, that is the law of existence, no belief in it is required, it just is the way the Universe is set up.  Our thoughts towards others will and do mirror back to us in our life in one way or another.  Indifference to the suffering of our neighbors will surely bring suffering to ourselves and here we are suffering and many of us still in denial of this.

The time is now to take back your mind, live from your heart, stand up for what we believe in, embrace love and overcome our fears.  We have  it in us to do all of this, we always did, we were just taught not to know this about ourselves, conditioned to be trusting slaves to the system.  Any day we can all wake up and decide to change ourselves and the world around us will change very quickly.

It begins with trusting yourself to ask yourself the hard questions and trusting yourself to find the right answers.  Reach out to others, all over the world there are millions of us taking our rights back and speaking up in various ways to help everyone else do the same.  Listen to those who have nothing to gain from your borrowed ear, who benefit nothing personally from your opinion other than to help the whole.  Do not be swayed by those who gain from your choices, who profit from you denial while they harm you and the ones you love.

I know this is a long one, but the time it takes to read this and the article lined below is but a blink of the eye in the grand scheme of things.  I ask you to not take my word for any of this but to go out and begin looking with your eyes open for more education on what is happening in this world and to then take your life back by opting out of this madness.  Do not support companies that are doing this to us, the very companies controlling our governments, if that means a little inconvenience or more work that is a small price to pay compared to the acceptance of this by supporting these companies.

Here are links to help you know who not to support... Make sure and add Walmart and Sam's Club to those lists as well. Download this app from this site for shopping... http://www.nongmoproject.org/find-non-gmo/iphone-app-shopping-guide/

We do have power to change this and we have rights that cannot be taken away only given away.

I love you all from a place of facing my own fears in continuing to be a voice of change.

One Love,
Lelania


Here is the article I mentioned that inspired this post, this and all the things taking place right now on our planet combined give me much reason to pause my daily activities and help share with everyone I know that we can and will change this all.

Monsanto leading super-secret 'above Congress' Obama trade scheme to outlaw GMO labeling worldwide

(NaturalNews) It's called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and it's a super secret trade pact being negotiated completely outside of law, with no congressional authority but with the aim of forcing nations around the world to ban GMO labeling, embrace Monsanto's GMO crops and keep pharmaceutical prices artificially high to enrich the world's medication monopolists.

A purely executive creation of the Office of the United States Trade Representative -- i.e. created outside of law with zero public accountability -- the TPP involves White House loyalists running around the world, strong-arming over a dozen nations into signing on to a corporate domination agreement knowingly misnamed "free trade."

Details of the TPP are so secret that even members of Congress are not allowed to review them or disclose them. What we know about the TPP has only come from leaks, as the full text of the entire agreement is being kept not only from Congress but also the American people. Yet over 600 corporate CEOs -- including CEOs of companies that have been repeatedly found guilty of felony crimes in America -- have been allowed to influence the details of the TPP agreements. Monsanto, Wal-Mart and Big Pharma corporations are reportedly given top influence positions in this super-secret Obama organization that hands the future of the world over to the most evil corporations of all time.

GMO labeling to be illegal, generic drugs to be all but shut down

The countries currently involved in the TPP include the United States, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. More are being bullied into signing the agreement with each passing month. Although the exact language of the TPP is a tightly-protected secret, it is reported that the TPP will require:

• Dropping of all bans on GMOs. All countries signing the TPP must allow GMOs to be grown in their country and secretly used throughout the food supply -- all GMO labeling will be outlawed.

• Shutting down all generic drug manufacturers who make "copycat" drugs that compete with the monopoly patents of top U.S. drug makers.

• Redefining resistance against GMOs as "anti-free trade practices" that can result in economic sanctions against nations that attempt to ban GMOs.

• The outlawing of "Fair Use" of copyrighted material. Anyone using an image, a short video clip, an audio clip, etc., would be criminalize and possibly arrested and imprisoned under the TPP.

• Flooding the U.S. market with polluted, unsafe food products from nations that have virtually no enforcement of regulations on pesticides and herbicides. As Nationofchange.org reports, "[Corporations] are carefully crafting the TPP to ensure that citizens of the involved countries have no control over food safety, what they will be eating, where it is grown, the conditions under which food is grown and the use of herbicides and pesticides."

• Banning people from using the internet if they engage in Fair Use of copyrighted material. This would shut down virtually the entire alternative media, many blogs, and silence most critics of the global corporate cabal.

• Forcing member nations to criminalize small-scale copyright infringement such as someone sharing a music file with a friend. Domineering copyright enforcement provisions are being influenced by the MPAA which has also been given extraordinary influence over the language of the TPP.

• Vastly reducing banking regulations, allowing criminal banksters to steal even more money globally while facing no repercussions for their actions. "The agreement would also be a boon for Wall Street and its campaign to water down regulations put in place after the 2008 financial crisis," writes Wallach in the NY Times. "Among other things, it would practically forbid bans on risky financial products, including the toxic derivatives that helped cause the crisis in the first place."

Essentially, take every criminal corporation you can imagine, make a list of all their most evil priorities to dominate and enslave humankind, and write them all down. That's the TPP. It is the executive enforcement of a totalitarian wish list of corporate evil to dominate and enslave humankind. (No wonder Obama doesn't want you to be able to read it...)

Maybe this is why the TPP is being referred to as the "Death Star" of our modern economy.

Monsanto, GMOs and how the TPP would forbid GMO labeling globally

The best information on the GMO side of all this comes from a site called Nation Of Change. This pagedescribes the implications of the TPP on GMOs and how the TPP would globally ban GMO labeling:

• The labeling of foods containing GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) will not be allowed. Japan currently has labeling laws for GMOs in food. Under the TPP Japan would no longer be able to label GMOs. This situation is the same for New Zealand and Australia. In the US we are just beginning to see some progress towards labeling GMOs. Under the TPP GMO labels for US food would not be allowed.

• In April 2013, Peru placed a 10-year moratorium on GMO foods and plants. This prohibits the import, production and use of GMOs in foods and GMO plants and is aimed at safeguarding Peru's agricultural diversity. The hope is to prevent cross-pollination with non-GMO crops and to ban GMO crops like Bt corn. What will become of Peru's moratorium if the TPP is passed?

Big handout to Big Pharma

Under the terms of the TPP, drug companies could force member nations to keep drug costs artificially high, thereby enriching the profits of Big Pharma. The TPP Timeline reveals that PhRMA, the lobby group representing the top drug companies and vaccine manufacturers, has special influence over the TPP.

As written in the NY Times, "Pharmaceutical companies, which are among those enjoying access to negotiators as 'advisers,' have long lobbied against government efforts to keep the cost of medicines down. Under the [TPP] agreement, these companies could challenge such measures by claiming that they undermined their new rights granted by the deal."

The intellectual property provisions of the TPP are also a big handout to Big Pharma. They allow drug companies to shut down generic drug manufacturers that are currently keeping medication costs low in many member nations. Under the TPP, drug companies like Merck would be able to enforce global monopoly pricing, even across poor nations where the costs of a month's medications would vastly exceed a typically monthly income.

But that's how Big Pharma operates: the goal of the entire industry is to extract as much human wealth from the planet as possible, regardless of the true cost in human suffering or global chemical pollution from pharmaceutical manufacturing.

All this could be forced upon the world without even a debate in Congress. "Mr. Obama wants the agreement to be given fast-track treatment on Capitol Hill," write Wallach and Beachy in the NY Times. "Under this extraordinary and rarely used procedure, he could sign the agreement before Congress voted on it. And Congress's post-facto vote would be under rules limiting debate, banning all amendments and forcing a quick vote."

"The secrecy of the Trans-Pacific Partnership process represents a huge assault on the principles and practice of democratic governance. That is untenable in the age of transparency, especially coming from an administration that is otherwise so quick to trumpet its commitment to open government."

In another op-ed published in the Bangkok Post, Wallach writes "Another leaked portion of the TPP text would take aim at policies to control medicine costs. Pharmaceutical companies are among the firms enjoying privileged access to TPP negotiators as official 'advisers'. They have long lobbied against government efforts to keep the cost of medicines down. Their goal is to keep their already unaffordably high profit margins up. One leaked TPP text reveals terms that would allow pharmaceutical firms to challenge the measures that the US government uses domestically to negotiate lower medicine costs for Medicare, Medicaid and veterans' health programmes."

So secret that even Congress is not allowed to see it

The federal government of the USA has, of course, become a super-secret corporate mafia that answers to no one. So when it came time to create the TPP and force U.S. corporate imperialism upon the nations of the world, Congress was left completely out of the loop. The TPP was dreamed up entirely by the executive branch without a single vote ushering it into existence. It answers to no law and has zero transparency. No representative of the People votes on its provisions. There is no oversight. There is no recourse for the public to challenge its language. The TPP exists utterly outside the boundaries of government and of U.S. law, including the Constitution.

"This is astounding, given that the US Constitution provides Congress exclusive authority over trade policy," writes Wallach in the Bangkok Post.

This idea of total secrecy with zero oversight from Congress or the public is to offensive to the fundamental ideas of democracy that 132 members of Congress signed on to this letter demanding transparency over the language of the TPP. The letter was utterly ignored by the Obama administration, once again proving it is willing to sell out the American people for corporate interests.

"While the agreement could rewrite broad sections of nontrade policies affecting Americans' daily lives, the administration also has rejected demands by outside groups that the nearly complete text be publicly released," write Lori Wallach and Ben Beachy in a NY Times op-ed.

"This covert approach is a major problem because the agreement is more than just a trade deal. Existing and future American laws must be altered to conform with these terms, or trade sanctions can be imposed against American exports," they add.

In another op-ed published in the Bangkok Post, Wallach writes, "A big-business-dominated group of more than 600 official US trade 'advisors' enjoy privileged access to TPP texts and negotiators.

Congressman declares TPP as "assault on democratic government"

After years of attempts by members of Congress to even see the TPP, finally one congressman was able to review only a few select sections of the agreement. That congressman's name is Alan Grayson.

He immediately characterized it as an "assault on democratic government." Watch his video here.

The Obama administration threatened Grayson if he tried to release any of the information he saw by calling the TPP "classified" information. (Yeah, national security and all that.) This is, of course, a runaway abuse of power by the federal government as well as yet another use of the police state secrecy tactics that have already made our government utterly unaccountable to the People. When the government doesn't want the public to see something it's doing, it simply slaps the "classified" label on the project and proceeds to engage in wild, runaway criminality with absolutely no repercussions.

"What I saw was nothing that could possibly justify the secrecy that surrounds it," Grayson said. "It is ironic in a way that the government thinks it's alright to have a record of every single call that an American makes, but not alright for an American citizen to know what sovereign powers the government is negotiating away."

"Having seen what I've seen, I would characterize this as a gross abrogation of American sovereignty," Grayson told HuffPost. "And I would further characterize it as a punch in the face to the middle class of America. I think that's fair to say from what I've seen so far. But I'm not allowed to tell you why!"
