With Bain in 1977 Help Propel Monsanto
by S.D. Wells
September 26, 2012
One year before Mitt Romney began working on the
Bain & Company
project to rebuild "Monsanto" and cast their new image and focus on
agriculture biotechnology, Congress passed a bill banning PCB
(polychlorinated biphenyl), an odorless, tasteless, clear liquid
known to cause cancer that was the "bread and butter" of Monsanto's
Monsanto was already branded and plagued
with the label of having created the "Agent Orange" contaminated
dioxins used in Vietnam. Now Monsanto would need a big save,
financially and reputation-wise, so they could fool the public with
their new image and a new "frontier," while secretly polluting and
genetically modifying American agriculture with the new faceless
poison known as Roundup.
Romney knew his first job at Bain was to propel an evil company that
was on the brink of failure.
He knew Monsanto's previous reputation
and about all the litigation. Romney also
knew he would be rewarded
financially in the biggest way if he could pull the whole
thing off, and he did. Romney changed Monsanto's image over the
years, from a scandal ridden chemical giant to a seemingly
"prestigious" Agri-business firm.
Fresh out of Harvard in 1977, Romney basically lead Monsanto down an
unethical but highly lucrative path,
helping sweep the PCB and
dioxin scandals under the rug, since that negative public perception
was crippling the company.
Romney and Bain recommended to Monsanto
that they focus the business on genetically engineered crops and RoundUp, the massively profitable weed killer. Monsanto finished
developing and patenting the glyphosate molecule and has marketed
Roundup ever since.
But it wasn't a "pretty" road to this infamous success for Romney.
Monsanto was still bombarded with an
onslaught of litigation throughout Romney's years at Bain, including
a $180 million settlement covering the claims of over 50,000 troops
that got cancer from hiking over and through Agent Orange in the
burned up jungles of Vietnam.
Agent Orange is on record to have
contaminated a total of 10 million Vietnamese and American people,
including children and babies.
This was by far the largest chemical
warfare operation in human history up until now, when
Monsanto's RoundUp laced GMO vegetables
like corn and soy have begun a cancer inducing genocide which could
easily surpass the damage done in the Vietnam jungles just 50 years
Romney would later use his Monsanto "payback money" and power
to become the "private equity king,"
mowing down companies and robbing workers of their retirement
This is how Romney created jobs back then, and GMO is how he will
create jobs and promote disease if he wins the presidency of the
Big Pharma, of course, is behind it all,
because when people eat GM vegetables and get cancer, Big Pharma and
the chemo scam make billions, if not trillions.
already chosen his biotech partners in crime
One of Mitt's advisory co-chairs was a key speaker at the
'Biotechnology Industry Organization' and said,
"It is vital for the United States
and other countries to support science-based standards and
systems that will bring agricultural biotechnology products to
the market to meet this demand."
It's not hard to guess who will make up
Romney's cabinet if he wins.
But the most disappointing part of the
upcoming election isn't the fact that Mitt Romney, the "Savior of
Monsanto" is running for president, it's the fact that Obama already
supports GMO and has the former vice president of Monsanto running
the FDA right now.
America has everyone believing they have
a choice, voting between good and bad, or good and not so good, but
really, the choice is that you can vote yes for Obama GMO or yes for
President Obama and Mitt Romney both support human
beings eating RoundUp pesticide regularly and without any labeling
on the foods. Just to let you know.
There's definitely a "War on Cancer" in
effect, but it's a war to promote cancer, to make sure more people
eat CANCER-CAUSING AGENTS, ones that are made by the same company
the AGENT ORANGE nightmare.
No matter what
the TWO PARTY SYSTEM says, they support GMO
Back in 2008, Obama promised his supporters he would be on their
side when it comes to knowing what they are eating, and in a
campaign speech he stated,
"We'll let folks know whether their food
has been genetically modified because Americans should know what
Today, Monsanto (the seed police) and similar unethical chemical
giants loom over ALL FARMERS AND ALL FOOD, and a global cancer
epidemic is imminent.
Monsanto survived its near collapse thanks to
Mitt Romney, and Monsanto thrives today thanks to George W. Bush and
Soon, if enough
Supreme Court Justices side with the biotech
industry, the U.S. government will have complete reign
over the food industry.
Why doesn't either candidate for president mention
nutrition at all?
Shouldn't we be praising Nutritional Science like
we do NASA?
Is the GMO shame too heavy?
When the next bailout comes,
will Monsanto get a big cut?
After all, their lobbyists are like a
"Super PAC" of ONE PERCENTERS.
If only we could see how much their
offshore accounts inflate after elections. Make no mistake, the
current handful of "running" politicians want GMO to rule over all
farms in the United States.
Don't give in
- you can set the precedent in November!
You have real choices.
You can eat only organic food.
You can write your "anti-GMO"
congressmen like Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, who support efforts
to not only label GM food, but ban it altogether.
You can help end
this hostile takeover of the food supply.
We, the organic people, can win this
"election," and the
precedent can be set in California in November,
and then eventually all over the United States.
Vietnam may have been the largest chemical warfare operation in
human history, but at least this time the people have a choice,
because instead of being drafted and hiking through the toxic
"cancer machine" in a war, humans can simply educate themselves
about contaminated dioxins in genetically modified foods and not eat
Meet Monsanto's Number One Lobbyist...
by Jon Rappoport
September 25, 2012
During his 2008 campaign for president,
Barack Obama transmitted signals that he understood the GMO issue.
Several key anti-GMO activists were impressed. They thought Obama,
once in the White House, would listen to their concerns and act on
These activists weren't just reading tea leaves. On the campaign
trail, Obama said:
"Let folks know when their food is genetically
modified, because Americans have a right to know what they're
Making the distinction between GMO and non-GMO was certainly an
indication that Obama, unlike the FDA and USDA, saw there was an
important line to draw in the sand.
Beyond that, Obama was promising a new era of transparency in
government. He was adamant in promising that, if elected, his
administration wouldn't do business in "the old way." He would be
"responsive to people's needs."
Then came the reality.
After the election, and during Obama's term as president, people who
had been working to label GMO food and warn the public of its huge
dangers were shocked to the core. They saw Obama had been pulling a
bait and switch.
The new president filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal
agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA and
At the USDA, as the director of the
National Institute of Food and
Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth
As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar,
the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy
for Monsanto. Taylor had been instrumental in getting approval for
Monsanto's genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.
As commissioner of the USDA, Iowa governor,
Tom Vilsack. Vilsack had
set up a national group, the Governors' Biotechnology Partnership,
and had been given a Governor of the Year Award by the Biotechnology
Industry Organization, whose members include Monsanto.
As the new Agriculture Trade Representative, who would push GMOs for
export, Islam Siddiqui, a former Monsanto lobbyist.
As the new counsel for the USDA,
Ramona Romero, who had been
corporate counsel for another biotech giant, DuPont.
As the new head of the USAID, Rajiv Shah, who had preciously worked
in key positions for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a major
funder of GMO agriculture research.
We should also remember that Obama's secretary of state,
Clinton, once worked for the Rose law firm. That firm was counsel to
Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the US Supreme Court. Kagan, as
federal solicitor general, had previously argued for Monsanto in the
Monsanto v. Geertson seed case before the Supreme Court.
The deck was stacked. Obama hadn't simply made honest mistakes.
Obama hadn't just failed to exercise proper oversight in selecting
appointees. He wasn't just experiencing a failure of short-term
memory. He was staking out territory on behalf of Monsanto and other
GMO corporate giants.
And now let us look at what key Obama appointees have wrought for
their true bosses.
Let's see what GMO crops have walked through the
open door of the Obama presidency.
Monsanto GMO alfalfa.
Monsanto GMO sugar beets.
Monsanto GMO Bt soybean.
Coming soon: Monsanto's GMO sweet corn.
Syngenta GMO corn for ethanol.
Syngenta GMO stacked corn.
Pioneer GMO soybean.
Syngenta GMO Bt cotton.
Bayer GMO cotton.
Tryn, an anti-clotting agent from the milk of transgenic goats.
A GMO papaya strain.
And perhaps, soon, genetically engineered salmon and apples...
This is an extraordinary parade. It, in fact, makes Barack Obama the
most GMO-dedicated politician in America.
You don't attain that position through errors or oversights. Obama
was, all along, a stealth operative on behalf of Monsanto, biotech,
GMOs, and corporate control of the future of agriculture.
From this perspective, Michelle Obama's campaign for home gardens
and clean nutritious food suddenly looks like a diversion, a cover
story floated to obscure what her husband has actually been doing.
Nor does it seem coincidental that two of the Obama's biggest
Bill Gates and
George Soros, purchased 900,000 and
500,000 shares of Monsanto, respectively, in 2010.
Because this is an election season, people will say,
"But what about
Romney? Is he any better?"
I see no indication that he is.
point, however, is that we are talking about a sitting president
here, a president who presented himself, and was believed by many to
be, an extraordinary departure from politics as usual.
Not only was that a wrong assessment, Obama was lying all along. He
was, and he still is, Monsanto's man in Washington.
To those people who fight for GMO labeling, and against the
decimation of the food supply and the destruction of human health,
but still believe Obama is a beacon in bleak times:
