china destroys gmos 263x164 China Incinerates 3 US Shipments of Genetically Modified CornChina has destroyed a total of at least three genetically modified corn shipments with origins from the United States in a move that echoes the way in which the nation of Hungary actually went and destroyed acres upon acres of Monsanto’s GMO corn fields. Interestingly enough, my article on that subject became one of the most widely shared articles in recent years across the web thanks to the rising number of individuals who are behind the elimination of GMOs across the globe.

And I suspect this move by China will be met with similar applause, as it represents a direct stand against Monsanto — the company that is literally being funded with your taxpayer dollars and directly marketed by the US State Department. Even Reuters and others reported on the leaked information, and journalists were in complete shock when the news came out.

The reality explains not only why the US government continues to approve and outwardly support Monsanto’s GMOs despite being linked to a number of serious health conditions, but also explains why the US threatened ‘military style trade wars‘ against those who oppose Monsanto.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Monsanto’s major connections in government, like FDA head Michael Taylor, are lending aid to the GMO crusade in ways that even surprise me.

And perhaps what’s most interesting with this situation here is that China has essentially acted against the US by destroying these crops — crops that the US government pushes on nations, targeting those who defy Monsanto. It’s arguably more of an act against the US than sending a naval battleship closer to US soil! It shows the true priorities of many US government officials, who couldn’t care less about public health if it stands in the way of megalomania expansion.

Regardless of even why the Chinese are destroying these shipments, which is listed as a crackdown on GMO shipments that aren’t even following basic approval protocol, you can expect US officials (especially the State Department individuals) to be in uproar for Monsanto. As detailed from the GMWatch website and reported by Sayer Ji of GreenMedInfo:

The law says that the [Chinese] Ministry of Agriculture must require environmental and food safety tests to be carried out by Chinese institutions, in order to verify data provided by the seed developer. All these documents must be reviewed by the National Biosafety Committee before the MOA can issue a safety certificate. Yet these shipments of US corn did not have the relevant safety certificates and approval documents, according to the news reports below.

When even China has the will to destroy Monsanto’s GMOs, you know there’s something wrong with officials in the US who sit idly by as millions consume Monsanto’s Roundup-drenched GMO foods on a daily basis. Thankfully, action is being taken at warp speed. We have the March Against Monsanto taking place in just 2 days, and we have more support than ever for exposing the corrupt GMO giant and GMO infestation at large.

    People should really read William Engdahl's work on GMOs such as his articles and book SEEDS OF DESTRUCTION. America is the world leader in terms of GMO Frankenfoods for a reason.

    Unlike the vast majority of anti-GMO "activists," Engdahl provides the essential broader context to the particular issues of GMOs (and companies like Monsanto) by connecting them to American geopolitical power and world dominance. That is, America's development of GMOs has been part of parcel of its broader strategic goal of controlling the global food supply–an ambition that dates back decades no less..

    This is the underlying reason why America so aggressively tries force GMOs on the world and why the US government (like the State Department) acts as enforcers for US companies like Monsanto. It's not just about the power of GMO corporate lobbyists only. It's ultimately about expanding American "full spectrum dominance," to borrow a phrase from the Pentagon.

    As former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger asserted back in the 1970s, “Control the oil and you control nations. Control the food, and you control the people.”

    Oh by the way, excellently written article Anthony G. :) Keep us posted on gmo/ge foods. Thank you many times over for informing all of us. You're one of the few good news sources that exists. Don't ever allow evil to corrupt you and your work and high principles.

  • Enlightened soul

    @ Foo: The same way our gov & mainstream media protects and lies about gmos, is the same way they spin a story & spread propaganda about the chinese & china's gov. I've been there many times, have friends who are expats living there for 10 yrs & others a few yrs now. Literally everything the news/media outlets spew only lies. 5-7 private families own more than 90% of the world media/news outlets. They also run many other corporations in different industries that stand to gain or lose, so they use the media/news/politicans as a marketing tool, & a tool to demonize others without any truth whatsoever who stand in their way or don't want to play w/ them. Heresies is a sin. By believing these lies about china is just that, heresy, and commiting a sin against God.

    "China Incinerates 3 US Shipments of Genetically Modified Corn"

    exactly what we need to do.
    Incinerate. Burn. Ban them from growing or selling.
    city by city. town by town.

  • Thomas

    Maybe we should take the lead from China and burn baby burn!

  • Edd

    "US government officials, who could care less about public health"

    You probably mean 'couldn't care less'. If a person doesn't care at all, then he couldn't care less. If he could care less, then he does care, even if just a little.

    Words have meanings. To express your thoughts precisely, examine the malapropisms that have become part of the lexicon before using them. Otherwise, you'll be saying the opposite of what you mean.

    That was a good article, otherwise. Thanks for writing it.

      all great points by everyone.
      marches are good for "community" building and a sense of belonging and a great way for activists and new people who would not otherwise join at all, to get involved and rise up from the apathy of the last decade – get
      numbers in strength – while re-educating each other and even, planting
      a seed of critical thinking in a few passers by.

      it seems only unproductive when an awareness march is followed by no plan of action at all. there's still work to be done.

      not one part is any greater, nor any less. we just gotta get out there and practice the gifts that we are strong in (some people are great at marches and educating, some are better behind the scenes, some are good at fundraising for the cause, some are great at blogging, newslettering and awakening others, some are great at becoming self-reliant and passing that knowledge to others, etc) …

      It's all a part of the greater picture.

  • rathbonez

    I tend to agree with George in that a march, when the media will lightly report it, or report it as a bunch of "conspiracy theorists gone crazy," is unlikely to do much in the way of informing the "public." Especially when people are informed through routine behavior rather than facts, which explains why fast food, soda, pasteurized milk and prescription drugs are so rampant. If the government can cause such an uproar over the use and OBVIOUS benefits of raw milk, and people don't see the idiocracy of that, then a GMO march ain't gonna do shit. Understanding Freedom through Food by rathbonezvizionz explains much: rathbonezvizionz.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/understanding-freedom-through-food/

    I'm certainly not going to defend Monsanto. As I'm sure you're aware, their abuses go far beyond the ones you've cited. At the same time, I think that opposition to GMO is misguided. Every plant and every animal on the planet is "genetically modified" many times over. The fact that humans are now tinkering with genes does not frighten me. Note that I'm not claiming that there can not be unintended side effects; I'm only saying that the world and life on it have dealt with the process for billions of years.

    Of course, I agree that no food should be shoved down anybody's throat. If an individual wants to avoid GMO like the plague, go for it.

  • Joseph Zrnchik

    If the US government can make milk illegal, then why can't China ban GMO foods? Whoever thought China would have a more constrained government than that of the US? Now we see the truth about our overlords. We will only have liberty through revolution! God bless the revolutionary!

    • Enlightened Soul

      I agree with you Joseph, but China didn't allow gmo gm foods in their country for a very long time, but the US gov has been lobbying for Monsanto and pressured/forced China to agree to it less than 10 yrs ago, they bullied China into going along by calling them restricting their people's choices, etc., but despite that, China only agreed to allow it into their country on a smaller scale, and mandated strict labeling of gm and gmo in consumer products being sold to their people. This is fact, and you're right, China does have stricter food labeling than the US, it's not a recent phenomena, it's been like that for a very long time. The worst part is our gov is lobbying from monsanto to other nations/countries from our hard earned tax payer dollars, you can read all about this, it's quite sad. Have you seen the documentary: "seeds of death, unveiling the lies of gmos". It's an eye opener.

  • anonymous

    labeling isn't the final answer though.
    it would allow Monsanto to STAY right next door.

    the key and the next step is to take it to the next level
    and refuse gmo's and ge foods and plants and animals entirely.

    if we can pick up our asses, and start what other cities have done and started initiaitives to KICK OUT Monsanto and allies completely
    by a complete ban in their city.
    some cities no longer allow them to grow, propagate anywhere
    near them.
    we need to think not label but GET RID OF COMPLETELY.
    or we'll be fighting this – in another form – for years.

  • lenore

    chinese medicine is 5000 years old and food in both prevention and medicine …they say that most illness comes from what one puts in their mouth…they surely understand that unnatural food is not a good thing!… in addition, it would perhaps be a good thing to do what Vermont did and have the state law require labeling… state wide movements by groups in various states insisting labeling
    needs to happen could be very powerful

    • I'm no sheep

      Exactly, Lenore, I agree whole heartedly, and you're incredibly informed & educated.

  • noah

    The FDA is Run by Monsanto and CDC runs the cover-up under the guise of disease control. Autisum numbers got so bad the CDC quit keeping numbers in 2002.

  • Ladyhawk

    For a country that doesn't care about it's citizens and we are warned about buying products from China because they are contaminated and lots of other news about their atrocities against their people-why would they destroy the corn crops? Even if they are GMO? Somehow this article does not make sense.

    • kica mandalay

      Agree

    • Truth set us free

      The fact is, objections to GMO have been on Chinese TV, CCTV-English.
      We can watch it in US.
      That county cares for their citizens more than our beloved country does here.
      Just think,
      thousands of citizens have died in recent wars,
      what country is that????
      for whom they died??

    • cpmt

      agree with you. It doesn't make sense that they don't care in other ways… but now they do this???? something smells….

      • elmjcil

        They have many citizens and some are super intelligent. So, why not try to feed them correctly to inhance this intelligence?
        Otherwise they don't give a whit anymore about the "middle" or the "low" classes. Just like the USA.

      • Enlightened Soul

        The same way our gov & mainstream media protects and lies about gmos, is the same way they spin a story & spread propaganda about the chinese & china's gov.

        5-7 private families own more than 90% of the world media/news outlets, & the same ones pulling our politican's strings through $.

  • marinaalbin

    Thank you for the article and a very informative blog :)

  • George

    what the fuck is a march going to do??? Past and done!! You DON'T ACT AGAINST SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT!!! That is plain stupid. What you do is you TAKE ACTIONS THAT ARE FOR WHAT YOU WANT… you plant your own food, buy organic. Jesus CHrist people. You can't be that stupid. The roundup has already affected your brains.

    • dogitydog

      You're an idiot. First of all, most of the sleeping population are not even aware of the GMO issue. The march is to open the eyes of those who don't have a clue about what is going on. The mainstream media has a total blackout on the subject. This is simply a way of getting the information out there because if you rely on the news for information then you are just another brainwashed zombie drone. People need to know! Why would you condemn something that exposes Monsanto for what they are?

    • cpmt

      it is easy for you to say. Where I live there is very few productos that are organic, And I don't have the land where to plant organic. Please don't tell me famers market… I don't know what type of foods they grow.

      • anonymous

        you can get pure seeds online or find a group nearby
        that saves seeds (meetup.com) and start growing your own –
        become self-reliant.

        lots of resources in libraries, on the internet, about growing
        your own food indoors, on your porch, in your apt. Indoor gardening is growing. you can even grow vegetables in a
        shoe organizer. you can sprout in a jar. etc.

        it's not that hard. starting it is the key, the rest gets easier.

    • Arlene

      If the people don't take action against this then, eventually, even planting your own food will be in jeopardy. Ther is this thing called cross pollination, ya know.

  • Dix

    Hope you all are planning on marching tomorrow for the peaceful demonstration of the genetically mortified.

  • Dix

    It is all very nice to be able to rely on the rest of the world to fix greed issues, but is it not rather obvious that instead of Hungarians having to burn crops, it would have been much easier if the problem were stopped at source in UNITED STATES where the very research plants where the seeds were being produced and modified to begin with? Why are there even any workers available to WORK at Monstrous Insanity facilities? Perhaps the scientists have big time pride issues, but what about the lowly janitors? Wouldn't you be EMBARRASSED to work there without at least ATTEMPTING to do a little bit of modifying yourself????Anybody got relatives on staff???

    • elmjcil

      they are not embarrassed. It is called greed. That is with a capital G. Greed.

  • Michael Evans

    Do not be Foo’ed. The American people have been fooled by trusting a government that is supposed to be protecting them. Americans are becoming more and more aware everyday. I have faith that all who support Monsanto will suffer for destroying the trust of the American citizens. I personally thank all countries for standing up to these corporate giants that have infiltrated our government and officials. Americans will prove once again that our citizens will fight tyranny and those who support them. We have fallen for the wolves in sheeps clothing but brave people around the world are exposing the corruption every day. Thank to the good people that stand up to adversity and tyrants.

    • Enlightened Soul

      Nicely put, Michael Evans.

  • Foo

    The reds may not be the nicest people on earth, but at least it's a strong opponent to the extremely insane us govt. They will protect their people. "no one kills our guys but us". moving out from under the us umbrella in under the chinese umbrella is like chosing the lesser of two evils right now. Or seeking the protection from one school yard bully at his rival bully. Come on over! We've got delicious dumplings!

    • Enlightened Soul

      The same way our gov & mainstream media protects and lies about gmos, is the same way they spin a story & spread propaganda about the chinese & china's gov. I've been there many times, have friends who are expats living there for 10 yrs & others a few yrs now. Literally everything the news/media outlets spew only lies. 5-7 private families own more than 90% of the world media/news outlets.

    • Enlightened Soul

      If you think the US gov is telling the truth about china, then you might as well believe what they say about monsanto and gmos too.Our gov signed the monsanto protection act, and telling us gmos are safe and no different (lie), they give them favoritism by signing this new protection act (which enables monsanto to release foods/seeds to the public and the world without any proper safety tests, and worst yet our tax payer money is going towards lobbying for monsanto to other countries/nations in the world. I can always tell when someone has no idea about china, never been there, never talk to any one living there, don't know their actual policies, their culture, people, politics, nor their history etc. Making assumptions is a sign, it's heresy. Heresies according to the bible is a sin. You don't have the correct facts, just like those who believe gm or gmo is safe just because our gov and the media/news tells us it is.

  • Amanda

    When can you start naming and shaming those people in government, the FDA, and in Monsanto? Single them out and make them accountable!

    • Steve

      I'm not even sure naming and shaming those people in govt, FDA and Monsanto will have the impact desired. The millions (literally) the individuals make ensure they will continue to operate without hesitation whatever the human or ecological cost. Once the person has sold his/her soul for dollars it whether they be a Monsanto employee or rotated in and out of gov't, shaming is part of the job. Even more unfortunate is how the system is rigged against the public vote/will so that whoever has the most dollars will win the vote no matter the positions they stand for. 95% of the time the person with most dollars wins and you can be sure those dollars are coming from companies like Monsanto. =(

      • Flossie

        Exactly. You can't shame a person who's shameless, and it requires a very special sort of shamelessness to go into politics.

    • Memyselfi

      Start with Bill Gates, who owns 500,000 shares of Monsatan!
