    Default S510 - Illegal To Grow, Share,Trade, Sell Homegrown Food

    SB S510 Will Allow Government
    To Put You In Jail ....

    S510 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. (http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-510 )

    "If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public's right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God." It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food." ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower....

    I don't think they could even enforce such a law. There are many laws on the book in the U.S that are never properly enforced. They're regarded to as junk laws.

    the problem is that they still ARE on the books and in the event of a plausable justification they have an extensive toolbox of "preloaded" laws that individually could be dismissed as inert , but in potential as the plot thickens .... the adversarials like to use our own laws against us , these "sleeper" legislations seem to have the potential to be just that

    Yep...found this as I stalked the wild asper-a-gust (lol)....

    Quote Representative Tim Holden (D-PA 17th)
    9th-term Democrat from Pennsylvania.

    Subject:
    S510 Food "Safety" Bill

    To:
    President Barack Obama
    Sen. Arlen Specter
    Sen. Robert Casey
    Rep. Tim Holden

    November 11, 2009

    11/11/09
    Dear leaders:
    I understand the Senate is taking the next step towards passing S. 510, the Senate version of the House food safety bill, and that the Senate HELP Committee is planning to "mark up" the bill next week.
    IT IS CRITICAL that important changes be made before the bill is approved by the Committee!
    While FDA claimed that the bill only covers food in interstate commerce, the language of the bill would impose sweeping regulations on ALL farms and food processors - everyone from local CSAs to the small bakers, jam makers, and cheesemakers at the local farmers market. These regulations are not appropriate for small local farms and food processors, which are fundamentally very different from huge, industrial food suppliers that ship food all over the country.
    Congress can and should address the problems with the INDUSTRIAL food supply, but should do so WITHOUT HARMING THE LOCAL FOOD SYSTEMS that provide an alternative for concerned consumers, like me and my family and community!

    I implore you to push for amendments to SB 510 to:
    (a) CLEARLY exempt intrastate foods,
    (b) also exempt foods sold in local foodsheds.

    Here's why:
    1) Although FDA stated that the bill only applies to food in interstate commerce, the language of the bill does not contain any such limitation. On its face, the bill applies to ANY farm or food producer, regardless of the size or scope of distribution. If the intent truly is to limit the bill to food that is crossing state lines, then it must be amended. And even then, the bill would still negatively impact small farmers and food processors who live near state lines and who cross state lines to reach local farmers markets and coops, so this must be addressed appropriately.
    2) The major foodborne illness outbreaks and recalls have all been within the large, INDUSTRIAL food system. Small, local food producers have not contributed to the highly publicized outbreaks. Yet both the House and Senate bills subject the small, local food system to the same, broad federal regulatory oversight that would apply to the industrial food system. Increased regulations, record-keeping obligations, and the penalties and fees could destroy small businesses that bring food to local communities.
    3) FDA regulation of local food processors is unnecessary and burdensome. Federal regulations may be needed for industrial processors that get raw ingredients from multiple locations (sometimes imported from other countries) and ship their products across the country, but federal regulation is overkill for small, local processors. EXISTING STATE AND LOCAL PUBLIC HEALTH LAWS ARE SUFFICIENT for local food sources.
    4) Relying on a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system will not make food safer and will harm small processors. S. 510 applies a complex and burdensome HACCP system to even the smallest local food processors. Although the concept of preventative controls is a good one, the federal agencies' implementation of HACCP has already proven to be an overwhelming burden for a significant number of small, regional meat processors across the country. In the meat industry, HACCP has NOT eliminated the spread of e. coli and other pathogens and has resulted in FEWER independent inspections of the large slaughter plants WHERE THESE PATHOGENS ORIGINATE. At the same time, small, regional processors have been subject to sanctions due to paperwork violations that posed no health threat. Applying a HACCP system to small, local foods processors could drive them out of business, reducing consumers' options to buy fresh, local foods.
    5) S. 510 puts FDA on the farm by calling for FDA regulation of how farms grow and harvest produce. Given the agency's track record, it is likely that the regulations will discriminate against small, organic, and diversified farms. The House version of the bill directs FDA to consider the impact of its rulemaking on small-scale and diversified farms, but there are no enforceable limits or protections for small diversified and organic farms from inappropriate and burdensome federal rules.
    Thank you.

    Sleeper laws are very dangerous...at any future time anyone sharing homegrown food, even with extended family, could be arrested. Why have these laws be so potentially extensive?

    Hello;
    I saw this about 3 days ago myself. Even posted it.
    Then I read up on it, and deleted the thread.

    It is all true, in that the SOB's did try it. One teeny li'l catch.

    It was introduced in the 2009 Congressional session.
    Original Date of S510: 3/3/2009
    It was then duly rat-holed in a committee where it died the unsung death of all bad ideas.
    The session ended and so the bill died.

    Not saying they won't try again, but for now...

    Fred

    Considering the Elite, or in this case, part of the Elite, specifically the american shadow government, and the ones behind such kind of tyrannical laws, are also expecting, yes expecting, a major solar flare of unprecedent proportion, that might burn the world and shut down civilization as we know now, and are preparing for the day after, are simply creating these laws, not built for this civilization, but the new one emerging from the ashes of what will be left, there will be no resistance against such laws in a survival state. That is what they are expecting, their plan, so it makes all sens.

    Namaste, Steven

    I did follow my nose and found this comment on the Mises.org forum:
    Quote The bill applies only to "food facilities," and private residences are explicitly excluded from falling under that term. Thus, the bill (if it became law) would not apply to privately produced food grown for one's own consumption. Rather, it would apply only to commercial operations, such as corporate farms, dairies, and restaurants.

    Correction: The bill also explicitly excludes Restaurants from the definition of "food facilities," and it appears that farms are also excluded. My mistake. Sorry.
    Assuming they got to read the text, the statement in bold above doesn't make sense. The intent seems pretty clear;

    What they want is to make any commercial use of food, privately produced, illegal. Basically the end of things like roadside produce, food coops, etc. (down to lemonade stands, once the cops get ahold of this).

    The only person I know we could have elected President, who would have vetoed this no matter what it was attached to was.... Ron Paul ... whose crazy now?

    Actually, it's a big problem and it helps to destroy our system of civil rights. For example, police cannot pull you over on the road without probable cause. They cannot get an arrest warrent to enter your property without convincing a judge you may have done something wrong. With so many existing laws and new laws, who is not in violation of something?

    consider it resurrected... here is the newsletter I got 3 days ago--
    the blog entry ( http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.bl...-s3767-to.html )is dated sept 14, 2010 and reports on recent congressional activity...

    ________________________

    Another Attack By the Empire
    S.3767, New Companion Bill to S. 510 Introduces Severe Criminal Penalties
    For "Adulterating" Food, Which To FDA Means... Selling Supplements!

    Food Fascism Battle is Far From Over

    1. Must Take Revised Action Item Each Day:

    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4613

    2. Must send viral! Please forward this item, urging contacts to take the Action Item and then send it to their contact with the same request.

    3. Check http://www.senate.gov/general/contac...nators_cfm.cfm to Find Your Senat Phone Numbers. Call Your Senators and Leave a Strongly Worded Message Like This One, Two, Three, Four:

    1. S.510 is a CONTROVERSIAL BILL, and
    2. Please, Senator, put a HOLD on it.
    3. Senator, don't let it be pushed through the Senate immediately by parliamentary means as a non-controversial bill.
    4. The bill can be reintroduced in January when hearings can held to allow groups which are opposed to the bill to tell how it will affect them. And the American food supply.

    The Empire, the Uber Cartel, is on the march. They are marching on your Dinner Table, Your Supplement Shelf and Your Personal Freedom.

    S. 3767, the "Food Safety Accountability Act of 2101" was introduced yesterday by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT). It is a companion fake "Phude" Safety Bill which brings back the horrific criminal penalties which HR 1279 imposed for doing pretty much anything at all that violated the incredibly restrictive requirements which every farm, and every farmer, would have to meet. The Senate bill, S. 510, while truly frightening, did not include these penalty clauses.

    By putting criminal penalties back into the "Phude Safety" arena, the megacorporations which want to drive everyone out of their farmyards and supermarkets will literally be able to criminalize and jail the owners of a company which cites scientific literature showing that their product is beneficial in some specific situation or circumstance.

    "Yesterday, in the waning days of the 111th Congress, as We the People prepare to throw the rascals out, Big Agra Biz' friends in Congress have taken the unusual late-session step of introducing a criminal penalty bill. The bill reintroduces a 10 year jail term for anyone who sells what the govt later decides was "adulterated" or "misbranded" food, a provision which had been removed from the House-passed (sic) "Food Safety" version last year (HR.1279). The political insiders plan, our contacts tell us, to add S. 3767 to S.510 so the penalties can be in the final bill approved by the conference committee." Read more here at Trustee Ralph Fuectola's blog on this horrifying development: http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.bl...-s3767-to.html

    The Natural Solutions Foundation has been warning against just such a development when we noted with great concern that Codex, like the US FDA, was making the act of telling anyone about the health benefits of food a forbidden act. We noted that this suppression of expression and truth was directed against health and food freedom, and has nothing to do with food safety.

    Well, here we are: A "Phude Safety" Bill, S. 510, will industrialize your food and its Policeman Brother Bill will put people who support any health freedom competition to the Uber Cartel away for a long, long time, threatening and cowing others who might want to do the same thing.

    Not bad enough for you yet? CDC says that 1 American in 4 will become ill from a food borne illness this year - and that's under the current system when some people are still able to eat food that is clean and unadulterated. That figure, by the way, refers to conditions like salmonella poisoning. It does not refer to cancer, a food borne illness that will kill one American in 3 and has just overtaken cardiovascular disease and stroke as the number one killer of Americans. It does not refer to cardiovascular disease and stroke, which will kill another 1/3 of Americans. Nor does it refer to obesity, diabetis and other nutritional killers. What that means, of course, is that through eating industrial "Phude", the only kind that S. 510 and S. 3767 will permit, you WILL suffer and die from the "epidemic, preventable, non communacable diseases of under nutrition", to use the phrase so beloved of the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organizations, who just happen to be the private, pharma-phunded organizations which run Codex! They openly acknowldge what the FDA tries to hide: fake "Phude" kills.

    Consider that: the passage of these twin horror bills means that EVERY AMERICAN [except, perhaps, the elite who have their own very special food systems, as Congress has its own very special health care system] WILL be the victim of food borne diseases, including infertility, auto immune diseases, allergies, cancer, diabetes, etc., etc., etc.

    And you'll use nutrients and nutrtion to treat it, right? Not if these bills pass. Only if they do NOT pass.

    Well, Who Is In Charge Here?

    Monsanto? Pfizer? Sen. Lehey?

    NOT!

    You and I and our neighbors, friends, relatives and co-workers are in charge. We, the People have ultimate Power .

    Perhaps you have already taken this Action Item. The good news is that we have revised it to reflect yesterday's surprise assault so you can take it again, once for every member of your household, and then send it forth, again to let your list know that the other side is not playing for fun, but is engaged in a deadly struggle. Whose death? Yours, I am afraid, and mine, and our children, and our future.

    GOOD NEWS: REASON FOR HOPE

    As of Close of Business today, the official US Senate Calendar does not show S. 510 on its voting schedule. Given the enormous importance that Agribiz, Biotech and the globalists attach to destroying your access to clean, unadulterated food, this is very good news. But given the fact that we have a long, long drag of days between now and the end of the 111th Congress, we are clearly not out of the woods yet. We anticipate that the S. 510 and S. 3767 will be introduced close to one another so we will be watching both of them.

    To send a letter to any group or person supporting S. 510 and S. 3767, click here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6652

    and make free use of the material there.

    S.510/S.3767 Action Now
    The Beltway Wants S.510
    Thank You Senator Coburn
    Dr Rima Reports Internet Radio
    Dr. Rima Recommends
    Latest Message from the Beltway Crowd:
    "Consumers" Union says: Stop Debate
    Force S.510 Through Before the Election

    YOU MUST TAKE ACTION ITEMS
    DAILY, ONCE FOR EACH MEMBER
    OF YOUR FAMILY, THEN FORWARD.
    URGE YOUR RECIPIENTS TO SIGN
    AND FORWARD TO ALL THEIR CONTACTS!

    URGENT ACTION ITEM: TELL YOUR SENATORS TO JOIN SEN. TOM COBURN
    AND PLACE A HOLD ON S. 510 NOW BEFORE SEN. REID RAMS IT THROUGH THE SENATE!

    ACTION ITEM :
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4613

    THE ENTIRE BELTWAY WANTS S.510...
    HOW DARE YOU THINK DIFFERENTLY!

    Consumers Union, an NGO that touts itself as "...working for a fair, just and safe marketplace for all..." sent a mass emailing earlier today saying this about S.510, the fake "food safety" bill before the US Senate:

    "Under the Senate's complicated rules, just one Senator can hold up a vote on a bill. And because of that rule, the long-delayed food safety bill could die in the coming days without ever getting an up-or-down vote this year! That would mean food producers will continue to operate indefinitely under our outdated food safety system - a system that contributed to 85 food recalls this past year, including tainted lettuce, sprouts, cookie dough and a half-billion eggs!"

    Consumers Union wants debate cut-off on this issue, that's what the "hold up a vote" means in this case. The proponents of S.510, taking the cue perhaps from Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sibelius's famous call for self-censorship by the media on certain health issues,

    "There are groups out there that insist that vaccines are responsible for a variety of problems, despite all scientific evidence to the contrary. We (the office of Secretary of Health and Human Services) have reached out to media outlets to try to get them not to give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting." - http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=4962

    Be that as it may, the challenge is clear: it is our PUSH BACK power vs their ability to mobilize the beltway crowd.

    Why the rush to add what Senator Coburn tells us could be billions to the Federal budget at this moment? Could it be that the new Congress may not be as favorable to the beltway crowd? Are they running scared? We believe this is exactly the strategic situation. Natural Solutions Foundation's President and chief strategist, Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army ret) tells us, "The Art of War teaches us to apply Mass at the opponent's weak point, and the actions of the opponent always reveal that weak point."

    What is their weakness? It is rooted in what they perceive of as their greatest strength: their connections to people in power. And our greatest strength is YOU -- SO PLEASE REDOUBLE YOUR EFFORTS! EVERY DAY, YOU MUST CLICK YOUR WAY THROUGH THE ACTION ITEMS. AND CALL YOUR US SENATORS. NOW IS THE TIME TO APPLY OUR MASS TO THEIR MISCONCEPTIONS!

    A couple eblasts ago our subject line was "Harry Reid Wants You Dead" and some people thought we were being extremists... This blast asks if "Consumers" Union wants us dead. We were, in both cases, using hyperboli to make our point: the consequences of the policy positions taken by the Senate Leader and by the "Consumers" Union could be deadly, as our local, natural, family farm and ranch, farmers' markets, commuity and home gardens could all fall victim to over zealous regulators leaving us to rely on the very factory "farms" and the GMO, toxin laced "Phud" (we don't call it "food" anymore) from which the Federal regulators have repeatedly failed to protect us! They say they need more power; we say, echoing Ron Paul's condemnation of them, more extensive regulatory power is just more power to abuse!

    Solution: local control of local food sources so people can choose natural solutions instead of being forced to accept the fake "frankenphud" Big Agra Biz and its friends in and out of government want to push down our throats. Push Back here!

    From GovTrackUS:
    This bill was considered in committee which has recommended it be considered by the Senate as a whole. Although it has been placed on a calendar of business, the order in which legislation is considered and voted on is determined by the majority party leadership. Keep in mind that sometimes the text of one bill is incorporated into another bill, and in those cases the original bill, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned. [Last Updated: Sep 14, 2010 6:13AM]

    Last Action: Dec 18, 2009: Placed on Senate Legislative Calendar under General Orders. Calendar No. 247.

    My point here is, unless this thing has been folded into some other bill, it's as dead as Julius Caesar.
    If anyone knows what bill it has been included in... please post it.

    Q. What Do You Call 524,325 Emails (So Far) From Health Freedom Advocates to Congress and Decision Makers On This Issue?


    Answer: A Good Start!

    Industrializing US Food Supply Time Line

    June 8, 2009: Rep. John Dingle (D MI) Introduces HR 2749, Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009, setting up a legislative and criminal system to industrialized the entire US food chain, criminalizing information about health benefits of food and minor infractions in order to drive all small, independent food producers out of the food industry. HR 2749 brings Codex into rapid and full implementation

    July 30, 2009: HR 2749, Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009, passes the House by a 280 to 150 majority

    March 3, 2009: Sen. Richard Durbin (D IL) introduces S. 510, FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, which, like HR 2749 will end the production of clean, unadulterated food in the United States, industrialize and further degrade all US food production but which lacks the draconian penalties of HR 2749

    December 18, 2009: S. 510 Placed on Senate Legislative Calendar

    September 13, 2010: S. Patrick J. Leahy (D VT) Introduces S.3767, Food Safety Accountability Act of 2010, which reintroduces the vicious penalties for "misbranding and adulteration) HR 2749 lost when it became S. 510

    September 13, 2010: S. 3767 referred to Judiciary Committee

    September 23, 2010: S. 3767 Date of Scheduled Consideration [e.g, bill could be voted into law that day or S. 510 could be introduced as an amendment and put forward in that manner. Stop it before gets to the Senate floor to be rammed through into law.

    09.13.10 - Text and Threat of S.3767: Criminalizing the Food Trade
    http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.bl...-s3767-to.html

    S. 3767 gives the FDA the power it has steadfastly sought: anyone saying anything about what health benefits you might expect from a nutrient, supplement or food will feel the wrath of the FDA and may well - I kid you not - spend 10 years in jail contemplating that wrath. You see, "misbranding", a charge with a 10 year jail sentence under S. 3767, means, in the mad, mad world of FDA-ism, having any claim, yours or someone else's, that says a supplement or food might be good for you.

    S. 510 is already bad enough since it industrializes the US food chain AND gives Homeland Security the right to make secret regulations, the hallmark of a Police State, AND gives the FDA more power to abuse AND sets up the complete and total HARMonization of the US with Code. What more could a Food Fascist want? Well, they could want S. 3767! And we are not going to let them have this deadly package, are we?

    No? Then take action now and mobilize your contacts. NOW!

    Health Freedom Advocate Takes On Sen. Harry Reid

    http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6739

    Nevada is a desert. Harry Reid wrote a constituent an absurd email claiming that the desert state would bloom under S. 510 and become an agricultural powerhouse, which was why he was supporting it.

    One of our committed Health Freedom Advocates received Reid's stock Senatorial pablum in a letter and responded in a way that I think you'll want to read. Click here, http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6739, to read his cogent response to the bought and paid for gamblin' man, Sen. Harry Reid.
