When it Comes to Government Regulating Our Food, Who's Telling the Truth?

01.06.12

The below 'news' on a site called "Natural News" got my attention, but mostly for what it didn't say, instead of what it claimed.

"Where's the Beef?" Or in this case, the link(s) to the proposed legislation
Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds

Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called "the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America." It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public's right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer's markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don't comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20...), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.
I know the government is wanting to control every aspect of our live and force us to eat 'Franken Food,' but when someone posts 'news,' without putting in links to the actual bill, I get suspicious.

The story did have links to a blog site called "Food Freedom," from a 2009 posting "Seeds – How to criminalize them."

The "Natural News" story (written by the editor) is from November 2010, but there are no updates and this mis-leading article is getting people all hot and bothered. There's enough real laws and proposed legislation that is herding us sheeple into the NWO pen to focus on without being led in circles by NN---BTW, Natural News has so many ads on their pages it reminds one of driving on an interstate highway that is cluttered with billboards that obstruct the REAL scenery--Besides, if we don't out the real perps behind the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11, it won't make really matter, since those who live in a concentration camp don't have much of choice when it comes to what they eat.

It's easy to find out what bills or resolutions the Congress is considering, this link, to "Thomas.gov" is one place to look, but since it's ran by the government, the search engine is a pain in the ass.

A better place to look is at this site, and if you go there and plug in "Food Safety Modernization Act," this is what comes up:
PolitiFact | Food safety law to regulate your backyard garden? No, it doesn't.

Peter Van Doren of the Cato Institute reviewed a similar bill passed by the House of Representatives last year, and said he was concerned that the language in the House bill was overly broad. "The question of how much or little is encompassed by this language seems open to differing interpretations and would be the subject of much jockeying when the actual regulations implementing the law were written," he said.

The Senate took up the issue more recently, and, to allay concerns about small growers, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., offered an amendment exempting most local food providers and small farmers from new federal regulations as long as the growers complied with local rules and their produce was not connected to active outbreaks of illness.

The Senate accepted the amendment and approved the overall bill 73 to 25 on Tuesday.
The House must now approve it, either outright or through conference committee, and the President must sign it before it becomes law.

So will Big Brother be trailing around behind you in his Wellingtons next spring as you set out your seedlings?

We reviewed the Senate version of the bill carefully and read ongoing news coverage of the food safety law. Nowhere could we find mention of backyard gardens being included. In fact, the Senate version, even prior to Tester's amendment, said regulations must be developed that prioritize food facilities that pose the highest risk to public safety. That would imply that not all facilities would receive the same level of scrutiny.

Another person who followed the bill closely was David Plunkett, a senior staff attorney for food safety at the Center for Science in the Public Interest; he too said that backyard gardens were not part of the bill. Plunkett pointed us to a line in Section 105 the Senate bill that said the rules "shall not apply to produce that is produced by an individual for personal consumption."
Now I know why they didn't include hot links to the actual legislation, the NN story is filled with compost, but telling the truth doesn't get people all hot and bothered so they'll click on another story at your site and make that cash register ring.

Here's where this story gets even weirder.
The NaturalNews Network is owned and operated by Truth Publishing International, Ltd., a Taiwan corporation. It is not recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States, but it operates without a profit incentive, and its key writer, Mike Adams, receives absolutely no payment for his time, articles or books other than reimbursement for items purchased in order to conduct product reviews.
Sounds like 'Mikey' is doing his gig for the benefit of humanity, doesn't it?

Read on:

For instance, Mike Adams of "NaturalNews" also owns a company that sells email marketing software, Arial Software. Be sure to check out their extensive client list. (This is obviously not some obscure little guy fighting health care goliaths; Arial Software is in bed with some very big corporate giants.)

One of his clients is the Dept. of Treasury - U.S. Secret Service. What, are people using Federal Reserve notes for food?

'Mikey' calls it "permission email marketing software."
Every time you read one of his articles that requires you to input an email address to read the rest of the article, you might be providing him with an active email address that he could potentially sell to his Arial Software customers (with "permission," since you freely gave it to him to read his article). Lists of known active email addresses with targeted audiences (i.e., those who read his articles on health care issues and products) are very lucrative resources (for instance, to those who use email to market alternative/complimentary health care products, or even Viagra).

His company, Truth Publishing, owns at least 387 website domains related to alternative healthcare ideas and products as well as internet newsletter and email marketing software. One of the email addresses he uses for domain registrations is a contact on the whois record of 463 domains. That's a hallmark of internet spammers and viral marketers.

Mike Adams was also the guy who ran, with Mike Goodin (or under the alias "Mike Goodin"), the Y2KNewswire service, which was the number one source of much of the Y2K fear and hysteria 10 years ago. Y2KNewswire's address was 1501 Stampede Ave, Suite 3040, Cody, WY USA 82414. That's the same address as Mike Adams'a Arial Software. The whois domain info for many of these websites use email addresses common to Truth Publishing, Y2KNewswire, Arial Software, webseed.com, and others. (Google srs@webseed.com and mg@webseed.com.) Truth Publishing's "Order Fulfillment Warehouse" is listed as 2055 N. Kolb Rd Ste. 131, Tucson, Arizona 85715. That's also the address for the Arizona office of Arial Software. This is all circumstantial evidence from basic Google searches.

"Round and round and around we go, where we'll stop, 'Mikey' does know, his lucrative web site."

There's enough psychotic manipulation that our hijacked government is doing to 'We the People' on a daily basis to be concerned about without hysteria freaks diverting people's attention, so 'Mikey,' either keep it real or out yourself as being part of those seeking to confuse and install fear into gullible American minds.

When I saw his post praising Alex Jones, with so much butt-tonguing that it even embarrassed this normally hard-shelled redneck, I knew something was not kosher.

The true nut-cutting issue is 911 and the Zionist bastards that were complicit. You will never hear anything about that subject from him or AJ.

Adams has even moved to the Austin area so as to be close to the Jones industry. He has taken on so many of Jones' talking points that it's hard to tell the difference between the two of them. I've seen some comments at NN that indicate some of his readers are catching on to his real agenda of fear and profiteering from it.

Hey GB,...Excellent reportage, I am sad to learn, as I have, that this guy is a dubious operator, his connection with jones really puts the nails in the lid; none the less, there is some nifty stuff about colloidal silver etc to be gleaned from his health site.

Adams is nothing more than a NWO sheeple herder, keeping the flock in the pen and scaring them with hysterical tales of bunk.

Is his last name actually Adams or someting more kosher sounding?

Hey GB,...Well as you said, none of this shit is a hill of beans next to the issue of nailing the fucking crims that perpetrated 911, Bali and 7/7, Iraq, Libya, ad nauseum...

The sooner they blitz Iran and get into an ass-kicking contest with someone that can give it back - the sooner we can start rounding up the yids in our respective countries; no better time to exact retribution than under the cover of the fog of war!
