    "In just 24 hours, 43,475 emails have been sent saying STOP! DO NOT CRIMINALIZE THE DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD! So the amendment is a powerful signal that Sen. Leahy and his Agribiz cohorts had no choice but to look for a way to make the bill less bizarre and unpalatable."

    Latest from the Beltway: Today, Reacting to Your PUSH BACK, the Senate Judiciary Committee Amended S. 3767! Now it's time to demand the Food Freedom Amendment! Push Back Continues!

    ACT NOW!!!!

    CONGRESS IS RESPONDING TO OUR PRESSURE. PLEASE! TAKE ALL 3 ACTIONS HERE AND FORWARD TO YOUR CONTACTS - ALL OF THEM

    Don't Rush S. 3767 to the Senate Floor - adopt the Food Freedom Amendment Instead!
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4878

    Stop S.510!
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4613

    Thank You, Senator Coburn for Keeping a "Hold" on S.510!
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4856

    The Senate Judiciary Committee Considered S.3767
    In Its Executive Business Meeting today... and Amended it!

    The Devil, they say, is in the details. Today's Judiciary Committee details are a partial win for us. Not enough to declare victory, you understand, but enough for us to see clearly that the pounding we are delivering to the Senate is noted, and having an impact. Conclusion? KEEP POUNDING!

    Senator Leahy is a powerful man. S. 3767 is his bill. He is the Chairman of the Committee that is considering it. He would have no need to amend it under normal circumstances.

    You, the Health Freedom NetRoots, the Mouse Warriors, have made sure that these are absolutely not normal circumstances. In just 24 hours, 43,475 emails have been sent saying STOP! DO NOT CRIMINALIZE THE DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD! So the amendment is a powerful signal that Sen. Leahy and his Agribiz cohorts had no choice but to look for a way to make the bill less bizarre and unpalatable.

    While Senator Leahy continues to push his dangerous and unnecessary bill through the Judiciary Committee (um, we thought that it was already illegal to use interstate commerce to knowingly spread dangerous substances...), the Senate leadership had to acknowledge wide-spread public opposition to criminalizing food (and supplement) distribution. Leahy's substitute amendment adds the following words to the definition of the crime.:

    "...and with conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury..."

    Thus, a bill which would have criminalized any distribution of food where FDA, FTC or other govt agency later decided some rule, regulation, guideline or standard had not been met to the satisfaction of the bureaucracy (recalling that S. 510 allows secret regulations which could later have been said to have been violated), the added language at least references more traditional standards of criminal liability. While this is a partial victory for the forces of Food and Health Freedom, we must redouble our efforts and defeat S.3767 and S.510 just as we defeated Senator McCain's ill conceived and ill-fated S.3002... through massive Push Back!

    OK. So What Do We Want?

    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=4878



    Maybe, if Congress wants to criminalize distributing things that are harmful to the public... maybe, just maybe, it should criminalize "knowingly" introducing dangerous drugs (including vaccines) into commerce! Like Vioxx, Avandia, Flu Vaccines, Bextra, for a very few examples, But, then, there might be a lot of drug company executives and maybe even some FDA officials who would face criminal charges... Certainly, we need to continue to oppose S.3767, Sen. Leahy's bill that could criminalize commercial speech about food (or at least food distributed in interstate commerce), whenever FDA or FTC decides subsequently that the claims about the food were not substantiated to the liking of some bureaucrat.

    The "serious" harm amendment (HEN10891) added by the Judiciary Committee on September 23, 2010 is not sufficient to protect food distributors from bureaucratic and criminal harassment. We the People, need protection against over-zealous regulators who will destroy small producers while big companies can afford the legal talent needed to escape penalties.

    Instead, our communities need to be protected by law from Federal Government interference in local and natural food production and distribution. We need a Food Freedom Amendment, such as we proposed last year when the House was considering its version of S.510 and which we have continued to urge:
    --------------------------------------
    Food Freedom Amendment

    "No provision of Federal Law giving regulatory oversight to any Federal department or agency shall be deemed to apply (a) to any home, home-business, homestead, home or community gardens, small farm, organic or natural agricultural activity, (b) to any family farm or ranch, or (c) to any natural or organic food product, including dietary supplements, as protected under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994."

    Food Freedom is part of Health Freedom, and an essential part of the Liberty that all free people have a right to expect. Legislators have a responsibility to protect that freedom from the bureaucracy they foist on us. Local oversight of local food production would be far superior to big govt poking into all our local activities. Reducing central govt power would enhance the overall health of our society.

    S.3767 Coupled with S.510 Could Reach the Senate Floor
    For a Vote Early Next Week!
    CONTINUE PUSH BACK NEEDED!

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

    One other bright note: we knew that the possibility existed that because Sen. Dr. Tom Coburn has blocked the easy passage of S. 510, its language could be inserted into S. 3767 today as an end run around Sen. Coburn's hold. Again, because of our continued opposition and vigorous activism, that did not happen.

    WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET. WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE THIS BEAST IS DEAD

    Continue to take action NOW and mobilize your contacts... NOW!

    Senate bill 3767 seeks to put dietary supplement makers in prison for ten years (for telling the truth)
    (To take action on this, go to the previous post for links.)
    Please circulate widely. Thanks.

    http://www.naturalnews.com/029828_Se...pplements.html

    NaturalNews) Beware of Senate bill 3767, the so-called Food Safety Accountability Act. This dangerous legislation, if passed, would criminalize nutritional supplement manufacturers who tell the truth about their products or link to published scientific studies describing the biological benefits of their products. Based on language in the bill, health proponents who sell supplements could be criminalized and convicted to ten years in prison.

    The Life Extension Foundation recently published an important warning piece about this, complete with some call to action items for which we need your help.

    Here's what was written by William Faloon and published at LEF (http://www.lef.org/featured-article...). I agree with every word written here and urge you to read this and take this message seriously, then do your part to oppose this new legislative tyranny that seeks to criminalize dietary supplement manufacturers.

    Congress Seeks to put Dietary Supplement Makers in Jail for Ten Years!
    by William Faloon, LEF.org

    Pharmaceutical companies are once again interfering with your ability to access information about dietary supplements.

    The Senate is debating a bill that will enable the FDA to put vitamin supplement makers in jail for ten years if they cite findings from peer-reviewed published scientific studies on the label of their dietary supplements or their web site.

    The pretext for these draconian proposals is a bill titled the Food Safety Accountability Act (S. 3767). The ostensible purpose of the bill is to punish anyone who knowingly contaminates food for sale. Since there are already strong laws to punish anyone who commits this crime, this bill serves little purpose other than enriching pharmaceutical interests.

    The sinister scheme behind this bill is to exploit the public's concern about food safety. Drug companies want to convince your Senators that an overreaching law needs to be enacted to grant the FDA powers to define "food contamination" any way it chooses.

    Even today, the FDA can proclaim a dietary supplement as "misbranded" even if the best science in the world is used to describe its biological effects in the body. The concern is that the FDA will use the term "misbranded" in the same way it defines "adulterated" in order to jail dietary supplement makers as if they were selling contaminated food.

    The new bill being debated in the Senate increases the penalties the FDA can use to threaten supplement makers to ten years in prison. The big issue here is that the FDA will use this as a hammer to threaten and coerce small companies into signing crippling consent decrees that will deny consumers access to truthful non-misleading information about natural approaches to protect against age-related disease.

    Please tell your two Senators to OPPOSE the Food Safety Accountability Act (S. 3767). You can do this in a few minutes on our convenient Legislative Action Center on our Web site. Click here to take action now.

    If you'd like to read the legal details about this bill, log on to the Alliance for Natural Health Web site: http://www.anh-usa.org/breaking-new...

    Health-conscious consumers have succeeded in preventing Congress from capitulating to the pharmaceutical industry this year. Please continue this string of victories by telling your Senators to OPPOSE this underhanded attempt (S. 3767) to grant the FDA dictatorial new powers.

    Due to the short session before Congress adjourns for the election, please alert your two Senators today!

    For longer life,
    William Faloon

    Well, if they reduce the population to "acceptable levels" THEN they could enforce such a law.

    Cautions for CAM Wellness Practitioners
    A Natural Solutions P.E.L. Webinar
    Practical, Ethical and Legal Advice...

    From Foundation Counsel, Ralph Fucetola JD: "If you practice the real healing arts, you know the government is not friendly to what you do. Do you have a CAM "Alternative" health practice? Do you provide nutrients, remedies or health related items to clients? Do you have questions about your legal rights and limits … or need information about how best to run your health care business? Are you aware there are words you cannot use and statements, although true, you cannot safely say to clients? Hiring an attorney, one on one, to review these issues could cost you hundreds of dollars… making a mistake could cost you thousands. I invite you, instead, to learn from my Webinar, Cautions for CAM Wellness Practices

    I am Ralph Fucetola JD, known as The Vitamin Lawyer, because much of my 36 year legal practice centered around helping people in CAM practices, nutrient purveyors and advanced healthcare teachers. Today I am a Trustee of Natural Solutions Foundation. I can keep you out of trouble and operating smoothly so you can fulfill your mission to help others… This $99 PEL Webinar runs about an hour through 32 slides. It includes an 18 page eBook of information and forms all of which would cost over $500 if 'one on one.' This is a Natural Solutions Foundation Benefit Webinar."

    What is Happening with the Leahy Bill? A New Action Alert
    September 28, 2010
    http://www.anh-usa.org/leahy-bill-new-action-alert/

    us_congressAt one point we almost lost—it’s still touch and go—but there is some good news to report.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV) attempted a procedural maneuver last week—a unanimous consent agreement to bring the Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510) to the Senate floor with Leahy’s original bill (S. 3767) and Sen. Diane Feinstein’s BPA amendment attached for consideration. ANH supporters will appreciate the irony of this. We were fighting tooth and nail against the Leahy bill, a dagger aimed at natural food and supplement producers, but have supported the Feinstein amendment aimed to get BPA out of water bottles. The choice, however, was clear. It was much more important to stop Leahy than to win on Feinstein.

    Sen. Tom Coburn (R–OK) objected to Reid’s proposed unanimous consent agreement, raising concerns relating to the financing of the bill. The Food Safety Bill is stalled at this point, although it is always possible that Coburn and Reid will work out their disagreement behind the scenes, setting the stage to bring it to the Senate floor.

    Meanwhile, Leahy’s bill still exists on its own, since the effort to attach it without changes to the Food Safety Bill failed. But there is some good news to report. Thanks to all the messages opposing the bill that have poured in—that is, thanks to your efforts the Judiciary Committee amended it. Click here to send our new Action Alert.

    The new language now fines or jails for up to ten years “any person who knowingly [adulterates or misbrands food or supplements] with conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury.” This is a big improvement! If interpreted correctly by the FDA, it means that a producer cannot be threatened with a long jail term simply for citing leading university scientific research in its advertising.

    The amended language is an important victory. Let’s give Senator Leahy credit for making the change. We spoke to the senator’s office this week, and there is no doubt that he considers himself a supporter of natural health, as demonstrated by his opposition to GMO and his writing the organic farm bill. We wish we could now support his bill, but we still can’t.

    Why not? The language, even as amended, leaves wiggle room—it does not require that any actual harm or death occur. It only speaks of a vague “conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury.” It would be too easy for the FDA to claim anything it wants to claim about what this bill is really saying. The FDA likes to intimidate. A ten-year jail term is a powerful weapon of intimidation if misused, and we think it is likely to be misused.

    The real problem with attaching long jail sentences to the terms “adulteration” and “misbranding,” especially the latter, is that these terms have been so distorted by the FDA.

    To our ears, “adulterated” means that it doesn’t meet good manufacturing practices, that the food itself is somehow tainted or injurious to health, or contains an ingredient that presents a significant or unreasonable risk of illness. And “misbranded” suggests deliberate and harmful misstatements about a product.

    But as interpreted by the FDA, a food or supplement may be “adulterated” if some vague FDA rule is deemed by the FDA not to have been followed. “Misbranded” can mean that the producer makes a completely true statement about the product but without FDA permission. A cherry producer who cites peer-reviewed scientific research from prestigious universities on the health benefits of cherries would, in FDA-speak, have engaged in “false” and actionable “misbranding” which suddenly turns the cherries into drugs. Producers, of course, have the right to take cherries through the new drug approval process!

    Until Congress fixes these interpretations of “adulteration” and “misbranding,” extreme care needs to be taken in legislating long jail terms connected to them. In the case of Leahy’s bill, more amending is needed. For such draconian jail terms to apply, the bill should require both Leahy’s new language (“conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury”) and the actual subsequent occurrence of death or serious bodily injury.

    And there is another problem with the Leahy bill that the recent amendment doesn’t change. The Leahy bill, if passed, will be attached to the Senate Food Safety Bill. It will then go into conference to be melded with the House Food Safety Bill. The House bill also has long new jail terms, but applies them to any so-called adulteration or misbranding without requiring “conscious or reckless disregard of a risk of death or serious bodily injury.” It would be the easiest thing in the world to meld the two bills by dropping the language that Senator Leahy has just added to his bill.

    Keep this in mind: the Leahy bill almost certainly came into existence because new long prison terms were intentionally kept out of the Senate Food Safety Bill. Who is it that wants them back in so badly that the Leahy bill had to be created at the last moment? Although it’s a speculation, this may trace back to Congressman Waxman, the chair of the House Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over food safety. If there are jail terms in the Senate bill, Waxman would be expected to fight hard to remove the new qualifiers in order to get his version of the bill adopted—the version that would give the FDA a huge new club with which to threaten and intimidate natural health producers.

    Do others agree with us that there are risks to passing the amended Leahy bill? Yes. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R–UT), a champion of natural health, has issued a statement for the record on the bill: “I believe this bill could have potential negative ramifications on the food and dietary supplement industries. One of those concerns would be the over-criminalization of some violations that could affect the affordability and accessibility of certain food and dietary products.”

    We are very pleased that, thanks to your actions, the Leahy bill has been amended and much improved. We also recognize that the odds of it passing have now improved—but it is still a bad bill, even amended. We must keep the pressure on to defeat it. We have changed our Action Alert to reflect the change in the bill.


    Please take action now.

    Even if you wrote to your senators last week, please do so again. We have a new sample letter explaining why the amended bill is still a bad law. And if you have not yet written your senators, please take a moment and do so today!

    From thread #21 in this thread:
    " Default Re: S510 - Illegal To Grow, Share,Trade, Sell Homegrown Food

    "In just 24 hours, 43,475 emails have been sent saying STOP! DO NOT CRIMINALIZE THE DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD! So the amendment is a powerful signal that Sen. Leahy and his Agribiz cohorts had no choice but to look for a way to make the bill less bizarre and unpalatable."

    Latest from the Beltway: Today, Reacting to Your PUSH BACK, the Senate Judiciary Committee Amended S. 3767! Now it's time to demand the Food Freedom Amendment! Push Back Continues!"

    I wouldn't call that doing absolutely nothing.

    Latest News from DC: Congress finally in recess... The Hill.com implies our PUSH BACK held off the fake "food safety" bill for now, "Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, hopes Congress will pass [during lame-duck session] food-safety legislation Reid tried to bring to the floor last week. Democratic leaders pulled the bill even though they could have had enough votes to stop a Republican filibuster. (Emphasis ours) ... " http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/1...tuff-lame-duck "

    Let's reason this out... if it wasn't a lack of senatorial votes that prevented S.510 from passing, perhaps it was, oh, say, maybe your PUSH BACK? We think so... And so, PUSH BACK must continue!


    No Man's liberty or property is safe while Congress is in session.
    Mark Twain

    No Person's Food Is Safe, Either!

    ACTION ITEM:
    The Senate is in recess but the count goes on:
    Tell Senators we will not allow our food supply to be industrialized!
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=3729

    ACTION ITEM:
    Even Democtratic Members of Congress Fear Frankenfish!
    Tell Congress to Ban All GMOs NOW Before It is Too Late!
    http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o...ction_KEY=2049

    Had Mark Twain lived today, he would have added "food" to the list of things threatened when Congress is in session! Today, however, thanks to each and everyone of you, to the vast displeasure of Big Biotech (you know, the people who have brought you unlabeled GMO corn, soy, canola, wheat, papayas, cotton, etc., etcl., and are pressing hard to bring you equally unlabeled GMO salmon) and Big Chema (the folks who make the chemicals which pollute the earth and our food and disrupt our hormones) we, you and I, kept them from getting what they want: a totally industrialized, GMO's, tainted and totally controlled US food supply.

    "NO!" we roared, in our hundreds of thousands.

    NO! We will NOT allow you, in your pride and madness, to take away our food freedom, our choice and, with it, our health

    and

    "YES!" we roared, in our hundreds of thousands.

    YES! We ARE free men and women making our own decisions about what goes into our bodies.

    When the US Senate and House adjourned today they left behind a mountain of unfinished business, unpassed special interest bills. One of the bits of unfinished business is S. 510 and another is S. 3767. Last week, according to S. 510 sponsor Durbin, the bill was pulled off the calendar because "it would have taken nearly a week to pass the legislative obstacles." So? There was plenty of time to shepherd it through those obstacles. No, what he was actually saying, in Politispeak, was that we, you and I, have been so effective in our opposition that the Senate did not dare to pass that bill, not with elections coming up which could do so much damage to both parties!

    Another bit of unfinished business, by the way, is unlabeled GMO salmon approved as if it were safe to eat (although it has never been tested) or safe for the environment (although it is quite certain that these super-growth fish will doom natural salmon if they escape into the wild, which they are certain to do). Even the Congress of the United States condemned the FDA's approval of this monstrosity Read more here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6871

    What now? Now we press hard, further and deeper than we have before. When the Senate comes back after the midterm elections, whoever wins will find that they have no smooth sailing on these food freedom issues. Over the interim recess, we WILL pound the US Senate harder than we have already done. You KNOW that when it returns, the Senate leadership will push these bills forward in an effort to make the lame duck session of Congress not only lame but lethal.

    We could back off of our effort and give them ultimate victory. Somehow, I do not think that is what we will do. You know the drill: Take the Action Items above and help motivate every single person you can reach. Then, please, join the

    510/3767 Club

    Make your recurring, tax deductible donation for $5.10 or $37.7 every week or month (depending on what you can afford) to help keep health freedom free. Click here, http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?page_id=189. Click now. The Senate may be on recess, but Health Freedom is not.

    Codex Meeting Next Month

    Oh, by the way, Codex is not on vacation, either. Would you like to come with Gen. Bert and me to the next Codex meeting? You are invited. It's in Santiago, Chile from Nov. 1 - 5, 2010. It will cost you your airfair (which for us, being in Panama, is $1114 per person). A Standard Room at the hotel will cost you $207.29 plus tax. Of course, you'll have to pay for your food and transportation, too. If you'd like to come with us, please let me know at dr.laibow@gmail.com with "CODEX" in the subject line.

    Most likely, though, you would like us to go for you and provide you with our daily video updates, our blogs and live radio broadcasts. Well, we are happy to be your eyes and your ears (and your mouth, too!) at Codex, but you have to help. That means that you need to chip in to shoulder the cost. If knowing what Codex is up to, which is so vital to protecting food freedom, is important to you, show it. Make a donation now ending in the number "5". Enough donations and we are on our way to Codex!

    Hello All

    I have not had time to read all of this thread but my initial response is for everyone that 'grows their own' to keep more seed at the end of the season and make sure there is enough to share-out clandestinely or otherwise, we will defeat the ptb we just have to outsmart them - shouldn't be too difficult...

    Love and peace to all. JP

    Momentous Times...

    This Week Was a Banner Week for Health Freedom!

    Through vigorous and sustained action, the Natural Solutions Foundation literally drove back the forces seeking to industrialize the entire US food supply. Both S. 510, the phony Food "Safety" [SIC!] Act and S.3767, the appalling Food "Accountability" [SIC!] Act. Both are bad law, bad policy and total assaults on health and food freedom. But our hundreds of thousands of emails to the Senate and others backed them off.

    Between now and when the Senate takes this matter up again, which current Senate Majority Leader Reid says will be just as soon as they come back from the electioneering they are doing right now, we'll have this battle all over again, so taking action now, and motivating everyone you can reach is really, really important if you want to have the right to select, or grow, or share information about, clean, healthy food!

    Here are the crucial Action items for you to take once for each member of your family and motivate everyone you can to do the same:

    No, Obama Did Not "Sign the US On to Codex"

    http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=5604

    Internet rumor is rampant about this, but it is not true. Perhaps this is simple misinformation: Codex is complex in the extreme and I can understand why people could get confused. This misinformation leads people to mistakenly say, "Well, the deed is done and there is nothing more I can do about it." Not so.

    Or, again, perhaps this is intentional disinformation designed to take the wind out of the sales of Codex opponants by convincing people that the deed is done and there is nothing more to say.

    But the deed is NOT done and there is a GREAT DEAL more to say. Please read this brief article, http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=5604, and then pass it along: let people know that the US has not, despite the decades of trying by the FDA and others, been signed on to Codex!

    Thanks for your support.

    Action eBlasts 3 Times Weekly Until the Election!
    United Action Amplifies Our Push Back!
    Please 1. Open Each eBlast, 2. Visit Candidates With Talking Points, 3. Spread Information to Mobilize Others!

    It's Time to Educate the Candidates
    HEALTH & FOOD FREEDOM TALKING POINTS

    The House passed the so-called "Food Safety" bill, HR 2749, in July 2009, sending it to the Senate where it is being considered as S. 510. After your strong Push Back opposition, a companion bill, S. 3002, touting so-called "Dietary Supplement Safety" was abandoned by its own sponsor, Sen. John McCain. HR 2749's criminalization of true food health-related speech was left out of S. 510 but S. 3767, with an unprecedented extension of criminal penalties for "food crimes" was rushed forward in the last days of the September Senate session to correct that "oversight".

    The Senate HELP committee "marked-up" S. 510 and the Manager's Amendments revision was sent to the Floor just as the Senate went into recess, with the threat that the bills would be pushed after the Election by the 'lame-duck" Congress.

    You and I know that these bills, both S. 510 and S. 3767, must not pass. To rush them through the lamest of lame duck sessions is a true abuse of power.

    Despite Congressional maneuvering, to make them into "non-controversial" bills that can be rammed through via "Unanimous Congressional Approval", these bills remains very controversial and should reconsidered by the new Congress being elected this year. The Congress is in recess, campaigning for their own, or party members' reelection -- so NOW is the time to educate those new members-to-be and NOW is the time to get their public commitment to support health and food freedom!

    We, together, can do that by visiting your candidates and incumbents, especially the Senate ones, with groups of people who all come armed with the following "Talking Points" and who discuss them rationally, briefly and very, very directly. Print out one Talking Point copy for each member of your group and half a dozen for the Congressman or candidate and his/her staff. And mention that you are part of the largest Health Freedom Organization in the world. As I write this, there are more than 305,000 supporters on our primary list. Each of them has contacts and are willing to share this information to preserve our health freedom.

    Here, then, are
    THE TALKING POINTS
    http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6910

    Take the Above Talking Points to Your Congressional Candidates
    Now is the time to secure their commitment to Health & Food Freedom!
    Now is the time to promote the Food Freedom Amendment!
    Please let us know what happens: email dr.laibow@gmail.com with "Talking" in the subject line.

    You Are Changing Minds in DC!
    Here’s proof that the political process can work: Capitol Hill is talking about what ANH-USA supporters have been able to accomplish with the dietary supplement and food safety bills. But there’s much more work to be done.

    Another Win for Famed Attorney Jonathan Emord! FDA Settles With ANH-USA and Fellow Plaintiffs
    Under pressure of our court victory, the FDA is for the first time allowing reasonable “qualified health claims” for some supplements.

    There’s nothing like a good conspiracy theory. But in the Internet age, conspiracies sometimes proliferate like weeds—and this one is false.

    Does that mean that a simple majority vote will pass this bill?

    I was trying to decipher the full text of S 510 -- http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...?bill=s111-510
    and after scanning past the many struck outs I came to the section of cost:
    "SEC. 401. FUNDING FOR FOOD SAFETY.

    (a) In General- There are authorized to be appropriated to carry out the activities of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, the Center for Veterinary Medicine, and related field activities in the Office of Regulatory Affairs of the Food and Drug Administration--

    (1) $825,000,000 for fiscal year 2010; and

    (2) such sums as may be necessary for fiscal years 2011 through 2014."

    which I consider unacceptable. I do not want my tax dollars be wasted in this venture. The $825M are spent better providing food, seed, organic fertilizers for farmers.

    And the second section that also struck me as extremely appalling, was the whistleblower section:
    "(D) BAD FAITH CLAIM- If the Secretary finds that a complaint under paragraph (1) is frivolous or has been brought in bad faith, the Secretary may award to the prevailing employer a reasonable attorneys’ fee, not exceeding $1,000, to be paid by the complainant."
    which I am interpreting, that if someone turns you in and literally potentially could destroy your business, all you get is $1,000.00 in attorney costs -- and the whistleblower has immunity!!! -- if I am reading this incorrectly, please, explain, so i understand better. But IMHO, this alone will turn the US into a spy on your neighbor nightmare.

    The very simple solution to this dilemma is allowing the godlike abundance that is programmed into all life / food / seed on this planet. Any "situations" of shortages are created as such. Example: one cantaloupe has about 500 seeds each which will grow to nice plants bearing each 3 - 5 cantaloupes each (one cateloupe will make a new crop of 1000 cantaloupes?), each having again 500 seeds and so on.
    The "shortage" of water and conditions of draught are another paradox: this is a water planet, an abundance of water exists, the pollutants can be distilled out - where are the salt water distilling factories creating an abundance of good water?
    The solution is to allow nature and planet life to "heal" itself: giving back to the soil, restoring the earth, plant, seed, oxygen, water life cycle balance and gos abundance as programmed into the DNA will restore itself.
    These proposed laws are laws that should not be. The law - if you want to make a law - should highly encourage - backyard gardening, edible gardening, replanting hillsides, deserts, etc. abolish chemical fertilizers and pesticides, so life can flourish and replenish itself creating a natural abundance for all. No need for governmental bureaucracy to tell god how to be. Maybe we should suggest that lawmakers should follow in Mrs Obama's footsteps and help cultivate that community (and private) garden....

    S.510 is Even Worse than We Thought!
    ONLY 4 DAYS ‘TIL ELECTION! WE MUST KEEP PUSHING BACK!

    Farmers and consumers alike stand united against the Bigs: Big Govt, Big AgBiz, Big Chema, Big Pharma, Big Finance and the rest… That is why hundreds of thousands of farmers, gardeners and natural food consumers have contacted decision makers demanding the defeat of the fake “food safety” bills like S.510, its criminal companion bill, S.3767 and the discredited (but still dangerous) fake dietary supplement “safety” bill, S.3002. And that PUSH BACK is why those bills are not law and may never become law… if we continue to PUSH BACK.

    The Lame Duck Congress meets November 15, 2010. The Foundation does not take stands on candidates, but rather seeks to educate all decision makers, we do urge you to vote your conscience… make your voice heard on November 2nd and your voice will be remembered on November 15th!

    S.510 is Worse than Even We Thought!
    http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=7319

    We have posted two hard-hitting articles from the Yup Farming blog that expose even more dangerous language from the fake “food safety” bills. Here is some what they say:

    “Leaked trade agreements and hidden things inside S 510:
    Corporations plan to end normal farming.”

    “The Canadian Farmers Union wants the Canada-EU trade deal scrapped. Under provisions in CETA [Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement], using saved seed could result in a farmer’s land, equipment, and crops being seized for alleged infringement of intellectual property rights attached to plant varieties owned by corporations such as Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, and Bayer. “It includes the freezing of bank accounts too, so you couldn’t even defend yourself in court. And this is for alleged infringement,” says NFU [National Farmers Union] president Terry Boehm. … “These are the most draconian measures possible and they would literally create a culture of fear in the farm population where, I think, that ultimately farmers would end up buying seeds every year for every acre just to avoid prosecution or the threat of prosecution…”

    Read more here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=7319

    “Protecting the good things in life by stopping S 510″

    “Ironically, there is much to be gained from the devastation of the US economy. Money has proved a false god. Others control it and buy democracy with it – courts, Congress, presidents, agencies. Corporate advertising wears thin. Is the new car model in the ad fun to drive past shuttered businesses and homeless people on the street? …”

    Saving The Power To Heal Ourselves: Creepy Codex Alimentarius

    By CC Treadway

    It's no secret that Big Pharma has been trying to gain control of our health or lack of health, but recently the heat has been turned up. On April Fools day, 2011, herbal supplements across the E.U. will be pulled from the shelves. Homeopathic remedies have been dismissed as a fraud and schools have already been shut down in Europe.

    How could this have happened? Well I am not so sure. I wasn't aware that a sweeping law could be passed in the E.U. I spend a lot of my time sending emails to my representatives to make sure that Codex Alimentarius doesn't pass here in the US, we are continually fighting it and our efforts have kept it at bay. But since I don't live in Europe, I have no idea how it happened there. To me, Europe has always been a fantasy land of miraculous natural healing products, a tradition of herbal healing and garden plots for every family. Perhaps the general population was completely clueless as to what was going on; I welcome letters from Europeans who have insight on this.

    Herbal supplements will be required to go through the same rigorous testing as a synthetic drug. The vast majority of supplement companies do not have the means to bring their products to market, as each herb requires around 200k to pass through all the testing and bureaucracy. Then, the herbs can only be prescribed by a medical doctor. Are they serious? As well all know, MD's do not receive training on herbs. But herbologists will no longer be allowed to practice.

    So now, I have to go to the doctor, after waiting a month to get an appointment, then waste a day waiting in the office until the doctor can see me for a few minutes to get my vitamin C? Come on. This is where educating yourself on the plants in your environment can come in handy. If I can't get vitamin C, all I have to do is collect a few Pi?on Pine needles from the tree in my backyard, make a tea and I have the equivalent of 5 limes.

    But this information will be banned as well. I'm not sure how they are going to draw the line between medicinal herbs and foods, considering all food in its natural state is medicine. Long story short, we need to stop this.

    One must understand that while it is important to hold a healing space for the evolution of our leaders, it is also pertinent to understand that the people in charge of this level of control have a mental illness classified as "Psychopath." Psychopaths are obsessed with controlling things. Obsessed. They have dismissed feelings and compassion as weakness, and can only feel their identity from the power they amass at the expense of others. There is a twisted pleasure in oppressing others for their own power.

    This is not representative of the majority of the population and can be confusing for those people who have compassion. So don't get your head in a tizzy about the why and how they are doing this. They are mentally ill and you are probably not. But the threat has become real, so our compassion for them cannot outweigh our need to take action for what is right. This is not the first witch hunt that has happened, probably not the last, but we must band together and use what is left of our democracy.

    On that note I have provided a few links.



    FOR EUROPEANS:

    If you are in in Europe, Dame Judy Dench is launching a campaign to get 35 million signatures opposing the law. Please sign the petition if you live in Europe, and take the initiative to find other ways this law could be overthrown.

    www.grammasintl.com/html/products/campaigns.asp



    FOR AMERICANS:

    Dr. Rima Laibow MD has been tireless in her campaign to prevent Codex Alimentarius from passing. Her efforts, and the efforts of thousands who write and call their congress-people have prevented these laws from passing. But we cannot back down. Please follow the link and you will be led to an easy form to email to your representative. Join her mailing list because she is on top of all this, and almost she alone. We need to be continually signing these petitions, they work.

    www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6789



    OTHER COUNTRIES:

    Please take the time to find out what is happening in your country regarding this issue. These guys are going global, so no one can sit back and act like it will never happen to them.

    I hope this article has inspired you to take action. Equally important is your light work. Remember to continually go into your hearts to dream the world of Love and Freedom we all deserve. Thank you.

    EDITOR'S NOTE:

    It is my understanding that the "Codex" Bill was passed in the United States during the summer of 2010. While the media kept our attention on the Gulf of Mexico disaster Codex Alimentarius was passed into law by the US Senate, in much the same way that other forms of important legislation have been passed into law when no one was looking.

    Interestingly, this was accomplished at the peak of the Deep Water Horizon frenzy. At a time when the US government happened to be dumping millions of gallons of Corexit and other deadly chemicals all over the southern states, if we thought any form of protest would stop the madness, we were being naive. The powers that be fully intended to use our protests as the perfect excuse to slip Codex Alimentarius into effect under the pretense that the regulation of toxins was at that point, in the best interests of the health of the American people. What they didn't tell us is that under the Laws of the Codex Commission all nutrients, vitamins, and natural cures had already been legally defined as "Toxins" as far back as 1963.

    Do I need to spell it out?

    What we are looking at suggests that everything from Acidophilus to Zinc will be unavailable without a prescription (a prescription from a doctor who's in bed with the TPTB!) Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide has already been banned by the FDA. All alternative medicines, modalities, teas, and tinctures will come under FDA regulations, as will schools, healers, and seminar courses that teach people how to work with natural medicines and/or how to develop their natural healing abilities.

    If it looks like it's too late to do anything about it, it's never too late. I am not entirely sure how we're going to turn this around but I have a feeling it's an inside job. Don't hesitate to go within and ask for a solution — because there is a solution and it can come from any one of us. I am of the mind that the same beings who have shown up as orbs of white light, all over the planet are here to help us with this — but we can't leave it all up to them — so stay informed and consider well the full implications of what we've talked about here.

    OUR PUSH BACK CAN STOP THE FAKE FOOD SAFETY BILLS!
    NO! to s.510 - s.3767 - s.3002

    Dr Rima Reports! Election Results for Health & Food Freedom! and much more....

    "After the midterm GOP sweep of the House of Representatives, soon-to-be chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said food safety will be among the priorities for his committee... Issa has certainly not been the only member of Congress raising flags about the food safety system, but in his new position he will be uniquely positioned to look at food safety in a more systemic way, if indeed he is serious about doing so... The House Agriculture committee will look quite different next year--over half of the 28 Democrats currently serving on the committee were shown the door by voters on Tuesday. Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK) is expected to run the committee next year. Lucas voted against the food safety bill..." http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2010/1...-new-congress/

    What does this mean? It means that if we hold off the current Codex-imposing bad bills in the Lame Duck Senate, the new House will be more open to real food safety reform... such as supporting local production and inspection instead of nationalizing both!

    Dhondup was arrested following the 2009 release of a CD containing lyrics calling for the Dalai Lama's return to Tibet and lamenting that "There is no freedom in Tibet." He was denied a fair trial, because in China, police have the option of sending cases to a "re-education through labor" committee, which can send defendants to labor camps for up to three years without any judicial oversight and without the defendant having any right to hire a lawyer. All people have a human right to freedom of expression, and no one should be jailed or imprisoned without recourse to a fair trial.

    A Long, Hard Ride Down: A New Breed of Rough Riders?
    File:West minstrel jubilee rough riders.jpg

    “The breakdown of the monetary system will be chaotic. When inflation commences, it will be highly disruptive. The damage to fixed-income assets will seem instantaneous. Foreign-exchange markets will become dysfunctional. The economy will become even more fragile and unpredictable,” writes John Hathaway for Bloomberg.

    “The present fiat currency system will end based on the strategy of Debase, Default and Deny! It is my opinion that it will be replaced by a system structured on the IMF and BIS’s Strategic Drawing Rights (SDRs) partially backed by precious metals. The question to be asked however is not what will be the replacement for fiat currency, but who will have ownership of the assets after this war ends? Who will pay the requisite ‘tribute’ that goes to the victors?” writes Gordon T Long.

    Dollar issuance by the United States is “out of control,” leading to an inflation assault on China, the Chinese commerce minister said in comments reported at the end of October. Chen Deming, speaking at a trade fair in southern China, said, “Because the United States' issuance of dollars is out of control and international commodity prices are continuing to rise, China is being attacked by imported inflation. The uncertainties of this are causing firms big problems.”

    Richard Mills writes, “Socio-economic turmoil – lawlessness, poverty, lack of adequate medical facilities and attention, low to no employment, low wages, disease, no clean drinking water or water for irrigation, and shortages of food or unaffordable food can all cause socio-economic pressure to build in many countries that were once stable environments for investment.”

    Mills also writes, “As a general rule, the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.” The best information is truthful information, which is unfortunately not available through the mainstream press any longer. In a rapidly changing world the best most truthful information becomes even more crucial, for one false step can present doom to us and our families. It is when we understand what and why things are happening that we gain the power to avoid catastrophe.

    Modern Medicine is a Sitting Duck

    Drs. Bednarz, Crawford, and Wood write,“While the hour is late, it still makes sense for leaders in medicine, public health, and nursing to speak up about what our civilization faces and what we can do about it. We doubt this will occur, for reasons everyone who has ever worked in an organization in hopes of advancing their careers understands. It is possible that a rare leader will step forward – probably someone at the end of his or her career – and tell the populace that growth is over and sustainability is here. It will hurt and the powerful will attempt to cut their losses at the expense of the less powerful and powerless.”

    These professionals think it’s obvious that “American society is arrantly unsustainable – ecologically, fiscally, economically, politically, and ethically. Succinctly, the world is reaching the physical limits to economic growth.” This means that the entire economic and financial model of the world is going to change dramatically. It’s going to be a different world with higher prices and less money and food for the masses.

    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_zABxJjGIDk...pharma_600.jpg

    There will also be much less money to support a multi-trillion-dollar health and medical system in the United States. Contemporary medicine will eventually be chopped down to a more appropriate size, which means all the lies and deceit of the pharmaceutical companies, the FDA, AMA, APA, CDC, WHO, and others will have to end simply because people will not be able to afford high-cost medicine or the damages and side affects they instigate.

    Incredibly we have Dr. Matthias Rath running a full-page add in the New York Times shouting out warnings about the Fourth Reich and the attempts of elite pharmaceutical and petrochemical interests. I have no idea why he is singling out the Tea Party Movement for obliteration while defending Obama and his program. No matter which way you turn politically in America, we find the same controlling interests and the takeover has been accomplished at least in the field of vaccines where we find 90 percent of humanity already enslaved. But no doubt patriots will sooner or later turn out for a fight and then it will be every man and family and small group for themselves. Big ugly government is having its day and there are political monsters on the loose and the last thing they want to be known as is “has-beens.”

    http://www.profit-over-life.org/imag...-over-life.png

    There is no doubt that Dr. Rath has had his fingers on the pulses of these madmen and we do know where they all came from. I don’t particularly go for his American politics but he is realistic with European ones and the European Union and he is dead on with oil and pharmaceutical terrorism. Don’t know why he leaves out the bankers and chemical monoliths though and all their representatives in the Obama administration. And if reform/revolution is not going to come from the grass roots where is it going to come from, Obama? If anyone deserves the crown of being an agent for the unspeakable we have one in him. Under his watch they certainly sprayed enough toxic dispersants over the gulf and now we are even hearing reports of people’s esophagus melting down. Betrayal of the American people is what is being served up with men, women and children replacing turkeys on the silver platter.

    http://www.profit-over-life.org/imag...-over-life.png

    According to Riki Ott, marine toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor, “The people that did evacuate [the Gulf] are glad they did.And for good reason! I am dealing with about 3-4 autopsies right now… I know of people whose esophaguses are desolving, disintegrating… I know of people with 4.75% of their lung capacity, with enlarged hearts… All of these people have oil in their bodies.” Multiple C-130s, military and Coast Guard, along with various types of Evergreen Air aircraft and boats have been used to carry out the spraying operation in and around the region, so we know this has all been a corporate-controlled government operation.

    “The global economic crisis, really having only just begun, will in years to come spiral into a Great Global Debt Depression, plunging the entire world into the greatest economic catastrophe ever known. This will be the ultimate catalyst, the most pervasive crisis, and most commanding ‘opportunity’ to implement the formation of a global government. In 1998, The Economist ran an article entitled, “Get Ready for the Phoenix,” in which it postulated that by the year 2018, there will be a global currency, which it termed the “Phoenix.” The mention of a phoenix is not to go unnoticed, as symbolically, a phoenix dies and from its ashes a new phoenix emerges. It is the symbol of destruction as a form of creation; the ultimate incarnation of crisis as an opportunity,” writes Andrew Gavin Marshall.

    Marshall continues, “The middle classes will vanish and poverty will reign supreme, while the rich become immeasurably richer and more powerful. Naturally, people will rise up, take to the streets, protest, demonstrate, riot, even rebel and revolt. As sure as the people will resist, the state will repress with police, the military, and the ‘Homeland Security State’ apparatus of surveillance and control. Make no mistake: this is the ‘Thirdworldization’ of the West: the ‘Post-Industrial Revolution’.”

    It’s going to be a hard ride down and the amount of paper wealth that’s going to be lost is stupendous. No one really knows the future but we can see the intentions of certain people and groups. One of the greatest books I have ever read was called The Rise of the Phoenix by Christopher Hills but it certainly was not about the rise of a central currency and one world government. Each of us has to incorporate the destruction in our spirits, transforming disturbing energies and experiences into growth and new inner wisdom. A new breed of rough riders we will need to be, tough in spirit and determined to do and be our best for our families and loved ones.

    [REL] I am afraid this is right on. Actually, what it means is, in part, that natural medicine will HAVE to triumph in the end, as part of the small victory in the middle of the massive defeat. This is the fulfillment of the results of overweaning pride, of hubris. It really is the story of King Lear writ large across the world.

    RED ALERT! S.510 WILL PASS ON WEDNESDAY
    UNLESS WE PUSH BACK HARD NOW!
    http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=7446

    Campaign for Libertybroke the story earlier today [Monday 11.15.10] that S.510, the horrific, fake “food safety” bill (and possibly its evil companions, S.3767 and the discredited S.3002) will be pushed through the Lame Duck Congress this week. It is definitely on the Obama Lame Duck Agenda. Our friends in DC have confirmed this.

    Update: 11.15.10 10 PM: Tea Party Nation reports: “On Wednesday, there will be a cloture vote on Senate bill S.510.”

    IT IS URGENT THAT EVERY HEALTH AND FOOD FREEDOM GROUP WARN THEIR SUPPORTERS AND FLOOD CONGRESS WITH “NO S.510!” MESSAGES, STARTING NOW!

    Please forward this message widely. Please "take the Action Item" below each day this week, for each person in your family!

    If you need information about the bills, see our Talking Points here:

    Our action item, to email US Senators, is here:

    THIS IS A RED ALERT! WE MUST FLOOD THE SENATE NOW!
    Last November 150,000 emails held the bill in committee for nearly a year;
    WE NEED EVEN MORE PUSH BACK RIGHT NOW!

    DON'T FORGET: If you are involved in health care in any way, your determination to not allow your profession to be abused is of utmost importance. Take the Health Keeper's Oath and pass it along to everyone you can reach in health care in any way.
