monsanto taxpayer cables 263x164 Leak: U.S. Using Taxpayer Dollars to Promote Monsanto GMOs OverseasJust when you thought the latest Supreme Court ruling in favor of Monsanto’s anti-farmer patent policy was enough evidence of Monsanto’s deep relationship with the US government, hundreds of new cables from the State Department and embassies around the world reveal that your taxpayer dollars are being used to push Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds.

Even mainstream news websites like Reuters are now reporting on the cable details, as it becomes more than crystal clear that the United States government is literally assisting Monsanto in promoting it’s health-crushing genetically modified seeds and escalating the corporation above the law. The same corporation busted for running slave-like work rings where ‘employees’ were required to work on the GMO corn fields for up to 14 hours a day or have their pay withheld.

As it turns out, taxpayer dollars are being funneled into the pockets of international lobbyists who specifically negotiated deals that benefited Monsanto — not even the government itself. This even included crushing the biotech competition in many countries where Monsanto wanted the edge. All performed by the U.S. State Department with the taxes you pay each year from your own salary. What great use, huh? This leak is very similar to the one I discussed back in January of 2012, where the US threatened ‘trade wars’ against nations opposing Monsanto.

One circumstance from 2009 regarding Spain is particularly telling, as the cable tells us that the embassy was demanding “high-level U.S. government intervention” at the “urgent request” of Monsanto to squash biotech competitors in the country so that Monsanto could come scoop up the market for itself. The organization Food & Water Watch has released a detailed report on the cables. A representative from the organization explained how this isn’t even just the promotion of Monsanto but a truly insane initiative by the US government to bend over backwards for the GMO juggernaut:

“It really goes beyond promoting the U.S.’s biotech industry and agriculture,” said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. “It really gets down to twisting the arms of countries and working to undermine local democratic movements that may be opposed to biotech crops, and pressuring foreign governments to also reduce the oversight of biotech crops.”

This revelation is truly amazing, even to me. I am rarely surprised with the latest Monsanto news, but the leaks reveal that the State Department even sent out pamphlets and DVDs to promote Monsanto. They even offered to help troubleshoot any problems that the countries had with letting Monsanto in for business.

Monsanto truly has the United States government in the palm of its bloody proverbial hand.

    The US-Biotech BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP is no longer hidden*. For a current example see “U.S. Government Ties El Salvador USD $277 Million Aid Package to Monsanto’s GMO Seeds” http://bit.ly/1kJw7j3
    and
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeffrey-ritterman/us-bullying-el-salvador-monsato_b_5497701.html

    For the U.S., the business partnership is a means to shore up its imperialism by creating massive food dependency. (Fortunately for Russians, Putin appears to see the GE scam for what it is.)

    For Monsanto and their ilk of sociopathic chemical pushers, the partnership is a means to protect and continue to expand their sterility-inducing fraud. Rape is an apt analogy: like a rapist who won’t understand “No”, they rape DNA and they’ll rape national sovereignty as a means of propagation if they can, as in El Salvador right now.

    As a business partner, the U.S. can play both political thug and military thug for the mutation industry (in case M’s own paramilitary squad can’t handle a ‘local situtaion’).

    Government Biotech > Eaters = Win Win > Lose

    * Over 7 years ago one of the first wicked leeks was a State Department email about literally punishing France and the EU for questioning and resisting GMOs, authored by none other than the United States Ambassador to France. Remember? Or never heard about it?

    “What you are seeing is not just a consolidation of seed companies, it’s really a consolidation of the entire food chain.”—Robert Fraley, co-president of Monsanto’s agricultural sector

    I totally agree with what you say. I have to thank you for your efforts

    Organize grassroots groups in your communities. Protect your local governments, then your State government. Don't let the neocons get control they are passing laws taking away voting rights, setting up financial situations to make the local governments fail to set them up for financial management and the fire sale that the financial manager has selling of government assets.

    Educate, Educate, Educate – people need to know what is going on. DO NOT count on the news. Read the legislation that is being passed. Compare it to the corporate legsialtion of the corporations on the site ALECexposed. org. Turn off the tube or at the very least understand it's propaganda. A good book that describes what is being done to us is a book called the Shock Doctrine by Naoim Kline.

    Our country is being extracted for everything they can get. This is why we have fracking, tar sands and other mining operations going on. They are destroying our water sources and buying up any they can get their hands on.

    Don't help fund their economy, check out itsoureconomy.us, thrive as mentioned above and do a search on the Zeitgeist movies. There are three Zeitgeist movies online that you can watch for free. It you only have time for one I'd start with the Zeitgeist addendum. There are many other sites dealing with what to de. Basically we need to move to a resuorce based economy. We live on a planet with finite resources but conduct ourselves as if they are infinite. Check out the venus project which has some great information. They are very close to delivery on an alternate source of energy that looks promising.

    Most of all get yourself informed, don't believe what other tell you verify your information. The form networks of people you know and trust and start sharing information. People will need to come together to overcome the corporate take over of the US. We need to move to hand counted paper ballots controlled by the people not the politicians. This is where it starts, the ballot box. There will be overwhelming money in the next elections and that means people being bombarded with propaganda. We must all be awake and aware so that the propaganda won't sway us. We need to reach out all over the country & vote the corporate rule out.

    Our former presidents warned us
    For we are opposed around the world
    by a monolithic and ruthless
    conspiracy that relies on covert means for
    expanding its sphere of influence–
    on infiltration instead of invastion
    on subversion instead of elections.
    on intimidation instead of free choice.
    on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.
    It is a system that has conscripted vast
    human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit.
    highly efficient machine that
    combines military, diplomatic, intelligence,
    economic, scientific and political operations. JFK

    "This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience … In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic process."
    — President Dwight Eisenhower, farewell speech to the nation, January 17, 1961

    Psychopathic control freaks have an agenda to depopulate. They're the same small group who've set up the entire financial, debt-slave, fractional reserve, Ponzi scheme, global, central banking system which is criminal usury and heartless. These tyrants control whole nations through financial debt (compounding interest). They bring governments down and manipulate all life on earth with their criminal financial clout.

    I like the stop paying taxes idea. At least you can enjoy the money you make, not send it to a group that is spending it to counter all your efforts to avoid GMO shit food.

  • John H. Shearer

    God bless all of you frustrated, upset, made to feel helpless in this current USA. We, the PEOPLE have to get our faces out of our …phones-games-tablets etc.etc.ad infinitem start looking each other in the eyes and then actually start talking with each other! I don't know about you but I am not afraid of ALL the other americans I run into each day!!!Keep your hearts hopeful and do whatever YOU can in YOUR immediate world. Start with that.

  • Terri Stansberry

    Lets not just talk about it…where do we go to DO something about it? It is obvious our government is incapable of resisting the Sirens Song of Corporate america….but there are more of us than them. We just need to unite…anybody got any ideas? How about if we all stop paying taxes. Think that would get their attention? Any other ideas?

  • Jacqueleen

    Bill Gates, largest stockholder at Monsanto is definitely determined to depopulate the world….He is taking nutrition out of seeds, killing off the bees with their insecticides and adding chemicals to vaccines so that children are dying or left with autism from the chemicals. Then, there are the chemtrails, dangerous chemical sprays that are destroying the composition of the soil and making people sick especially the elderly.
    This is criminal activity and it is mind boggling that he is getting away with it. There must be one courageous soul out there who will investigate and prosecute those who are doing more harm to millions of people especially children than all of the terrorists from the Middle East put together. Bloomberg just announced on the radio this morning that Bill Gates is the richest man in the world! Obviously, with no heart…He must be related to the Tin Man.

    So, since we are in such debt and have to borrow money or print it from air to stay afloat, where are we getting the money to help a many-billion dollar industry do this heinous work?

  • tomro

    hey guys ,
    the strenght is in how we are going to vote with our dollar.(if americans stop buying process junk, theres is no demand for monstanto products) switch to whole foods from local farmers,and press on our polititians to listen to us, the peple, or else(get a real job, where you will have to work instead manipulate and corrupt) but we have to stick together. that's our strenght, and no coroporation can survive

    • Jacqueleen

      BUY AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS…..BUY ORGANIC PRODUCE GROWN HERE IN THE USA AND DEMAND THAT GMO SEEDS BE LABELED ON FOODS. We can stop GMOs and globalization because it was done for the almighty dollar…..When they get hit in the bottom line….those corporations will come back begging for business…That is when we tell them to pack up, go back and sell their wares to the Chinese, Turks, Indians, Indonesians and anywhere else in the world that they ingratiated. WE HAVE THE POWER MY DEAR CONSUMER! EXERCISE IT!

    This is rediculous clearly the government is NOT for the people, they are only out for themselves, money , money, money, that is what they care about are they going to eat money? that is all they will have left if it is up to them. Let just get all these people out of government and change to a spiritual government that cares about the planet and people.

    • Jacqueleen

      The rich have already prepared for their survival. They will be in control of the world with very few people to control…no more than 350 million in the entire world. We have 350 million here in the USA alone….that is a lot of depopulation, starvation, disease and killings, etc. We are dealing with a group of madmen who have no heart for human beings at all.

      I hope they like the heat because they will spend a very, very, very long time in a very, very, very hot place with no butlers, maids, cooks, chauffeurs and no air conditioning…..In fact, it is dirty, smelly and burning all of the time. They won't have to worry about transforming a nation because they will transform themselves into grotesque monsters….no barber shops and no beauty shops in that hot place….No amenities…..JUST A LOT OF HEAT!

    May 25th, worldwide March Against Monsanto, google,it and find one near you! The world is going to speak very loud that day!

    • Jacqueleen

      What good will that do up against billions of dollars by its largest stockholder? What good did the Tea Party protests do? What good did the Right for Life marches on Washington do? These bums in office, all of Washington, BS are hard of hearing and blind in one eye and can't see out of the other, as the saying goes!

      We desperately need term limits for all three branches of government if we survive the tyrannical take over of our country by this administration! Get the public servant in and out before they can settle in to receive the :"take".

  • LESLIE

    Isn't it about time that "we the people" start to really put the pressure on our elected representatives in Congress and the Senate to stop this? I really and truly do not want any of my hard earned tax dollars going to promote Montsanto anywhere, ever. This is an insult to the American people who over whelmingly support the banning of GMOs, we don't want it! Yet, it is being forced upon us to the extent that it is really difficult to shop in a supermarket and not buy something that isn't being poisoned by the GMOs.
    WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TO STOP THESE MONSTERS? Why doesn't anyone ask our lying corrupt president why he isn't following his promise to label them? Remember , he said that is his pre election promises. Yuk! this is so sickening and repulsive but mostly evil.

    • Jacqueleen

      We tried voting them out of office, but the Chicago thuggery administration fraudulently counted the votes in his favor. We all know who owns the companies who counted the votes….if not, his initials are G.S.
