The ‘bride of frankenfood’ has just gotten an endorsement from none other than the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for supporting a genetically modified food supply.
Clinton’s unyielding support was once again revealed recently when she was quoted on the Cornell Alliance for Science (funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) website saying:
“I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record. There is a big gap between what the facts are and what the perceptions are.”
She was referring to GMOs.
With speaking fees coming from biotech-supported institutions starting at $350,000, most people with eyes to see already knew Clinton was supporting companies like Monsanto, Dow, and Syngenta. As more people follow this money trail, she is under increasing pressure as revelations regarding her ties to Monsanto and the Biotech Industry become more popularly-understood.
Dave Murphy, Founder of Food Democracy Now, reportedly stated:
“This is an outrage! $21 Million for speeches to the big banks etc., revealed on CNN today, of which at least $335,000 from Monsanto and friends?”
According to an Organic Consumers Association report on the keynote address, Hillary Clinton received a “standing ovation” for her encouraging advice on how to get more people to like GMOs.
Here is a short bout of Hillary talking GMOs in the past:
Gates owns millions of shares of Monsanto and Cargill stock, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation continues to scoop it up. He owns more than $23 million worth, or $500,000, of Monsanto shares.
