Who Will Stand Up to Monsanto? Russia?

It would be pretty ironic if our traditional “enemy” — remember, Mitt Romney kept warning us that the Soviet Union is our greatest threat — stood up to Monsanto while the United States kept on cowering and groveling.

A lot of European countries have banned Monsanto’s GMO frankenfoods.  And Japan and South Korea have just suspended imports of American wheat because of an unapproved strain of genetically modified wheat in the U.S.

And what about Russia?

I’ve done several posts about Monsanto, and the other day somebody found my blog using the search words putin will killmonsanto.  There are some interesting links on this page.  Here’s one example.

Most of these sites are referring to the same story:  a recent testy dialogue between Vladimir Putin and John Kerry.  The linked article refers to:

“…the Russian leaders ‘extreme outrage’ over the Obama regimes continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing ‘bee apocalypse’ that the Kremlin warns ‘will most certainly’ lead to world war.”

This article is full of fascinating (in a grim sort of way) information.  Here’s another quote:

“Most perplexing in all of this, the MRNE (Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation) says, and which led to Putin’s anger at the US, has been the Obama regimes efforts to protect pesticide-producer profits over the catastrophic damaging being done to the environment, and as the Guardian News Service detailed in their 2 May article titled ‘US rejects EU claim of insecticide as prime reason for bee colony collapse‘…”

This article confirms why we should all get at least some of our news from foreign sources that don’t just recite what American corporations tell them to say.

And if there should be a conflict between the above-mentioned foreign countries (including Russia) and the Monsanto prostitutes in our own government, whose side will I be on?

Don’t ask.

"Also to note about Syngenta, this report continues, is that in 2012 it was criminally charged in Germany for concealing the fact that its genetically modified corn killed cattle, and settled a class-action lawsuit in the US for $105 million after it was discovered they had contaminated the drinking supply of some 52 million Americans in more than 2,000 water districts with its “gender-bending” herbicide Atrazine"

I don't get it - Germany Prosecutes Syngenta but leaves it's own Bayer AG alone and Switzerland joins in the Genetic Ban but Syngenta a prime suspect is Swiss. It just looks on the surface they are going after Monsanto because it's an American Company (and rightfully so) but leaving their own alone.

Monsanto Et Al could take a page from Wall Street and just admit there is a problem without admitting any wrongdoing (an old trick), their whores in Congress with keep them from getting sued, then make Billions from selling the "New and Improved Product!" and maybe even breed the Bee's to go with them.

The American Way

Anyone that doesn't know that Obama is a corporate whore is not paying attention.

Erik: Funny how these things work. The European Union is somewhat more strict than the U.S. when it comes to protecting the environment and public health, and yet some of their own companies -- shell, Bayer, Nestle -- are among the worst offenders. Go figure.

IF I RAN THINGS: That might be exactly what Monsanto tries to do, right down to selling their own factory-raised GMO bees.

Lisa G: I still think Obama isn't quite as bad as the Republican whores, but both parties are totally corrupt and sold out. The only people our government "represents" are corporate lobbyists.
