Rolling Stone — didn’t they used to have comments? No more. They tell you now; you don’t tell them. Maybe that came out of their recent fake college rape scandal and lawsuits? They probably don’t want to hear feedback, especially in a public forum.

In this latest bit of political sleazemongering Rolling Stone takes on Jill Stein and the Green Party as if the shit was written by Hillary’s own team of paid, lying ghouls.

Reappearing is this nonsense about vaccines. Without any honesty as to Jill Stein’s actual statements or position they accuse her of “coyly” courting “conspiracy theorists.” The glaring red flag, there it is.

RS also conveniently cuts out specifically what Stein was referring to and inserts ellipses. The mark of a true hack charlatan at work:

“We should not be subjecting kids’ brains especially to that … It’s very hard to study that stuff. We make guinea pigs out of whole populations, and then we discover how many die.”

The missing words were:

“…and we don’t follow that issue in this country but in Europe where they do they have good precautions around wireless, maybe not good enough.”


The RS writer mindlessly cheerleads for GMOs without any comprehension of what the issue is:

“And despite abundant evidence that genetically modified foods pose no threats to human health…”
-Tessa Stuart (peddling pseudoscience)

That is a lie. Each GMO is unique and many have been banned. You can engineer a toxic GMO quite easily that would be harmful to human health. So the Monsanto catch phrase she went with is a baldfaced, ignorant lie.

The issue is in public oversight and long-term accountability for the experimental foods put out into our societies without labelling or tracking the human health consequences.

Tessa Stuart, hack.


Since Dr. Stein graduated top of her class and is a medical professional for decades, Tessa, perhaps the courtesy of quoting her actual positions when you attempt to smear her good name? Is that too much to ask, bitch?




It’s a bullshit PR stunt.

107 Nobel Laureate Attack on Greenpeace Traced Back to Biotech PR Operators

Washington Press Club hosted a hit job on Greenpeace the other day…



“Some NGOs were invited: Really?  Why not Greenpeace—the subject of this campaign?”

Nor was the security person just anyone. Schwab and Cray recognised him as Jay Byrne. Byrne is the former head of corporate communications for Monsanto (1997-2001).


“Golden Rice” Bullshit Claims Debunked:

This latest PR assault by Monsanto et al. demonises activists for allegedly stopping the introduction of the miracle cure, Golden Rice. This claim is nonsense, as Greenpeace and other activists have no regulatory power in the real world.

Their “Golden Rice” simply doesn’t fucking work…

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises

“The simple fact is that after 24 years of research and breeding, Golden Rice is still years away from being ready for release.”






The US National Academy of Sciences has conflicts of interest, funding from GMO Frnakenfood companies, and produces the expected reports…

Under the Influence: The National Research Council and GMOs

Among other conflicts, Food & Water Watch found that the NRC (and its parent organization, the National Academy of Sciences):

  • takes millions of dollars in funding from biotechnology companies
  • invites sponsors like Monsanto to sit on high-level boards overseeing the NRC’s work
  • invites industry-aligned, pro-GMO scientists to author NRC reports
  • draws scientific conclusions based on industry science
  • operates at times as a private contractor for corporate research.


Lost in the blur of propaganda are these inescapable facts:

1. Each GMO strain is a unique, novel organism that requires long-term, extensive and expensive testing before being unleashed on the unsuspecting population.

2. No such testing is done. You and your children are the guinea pigs.

3. Any type of manipulation imaginable can be done to food crops, which appear on the surface like their natural counterparts, including adding TOXINS to the genetic make-up. This has already been done, extensively.

4. Corruption is rampant, across media, scientific bodies, and particularly at regulatory agencies like the FDA and EPA.

And them’s the facts, Jack. Feel better?

UN/WHO panel in conflict of interest row over glyphosate cancer risk

A UN panel that on Tuesday ruled that glyphosate wasprobably not carcinogenic to humans has now become embroiled in a bitter row about potential conflicts of interests. It has emerged that an institute co-run by the chairman of the UN’s joint meeting on pesticide residues (JMPR) received a six-figure donation from Monsanto, which uses the substance as a core ingredient in its bestselling Roundup weedkiller.

…In 2012, the ILSI group took a $500,000 (£344,234) donation from Monsanto and a $528,500 donation from the industry group Croplife International, which represents Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta and others, according to documents obtained by the US right to know campaign.

TAKE ACTION! Ask your Member of Congress and Senators to remove the Monsanto Promotion Act. Tell them you don’t want your taxes to be spent on corporate welfare or industry propaganda, especially not to promote Monsanto’s GMOs!

Don’t Let Congress Give Your Money to Monsanto!




Fucking Republicans

“I’m a registered Republican,” she said.

And none of this would have mattered to her in the slightest except it happened to her, to her son. There’s no problem with corporate control and deregulation until your family gets sick and dies. That’s how Republicans roll. They look the other way at corruption until that corruption affects their own family. It has to personally impact them before the horror of the situation becomes real. They lack fundamental empathy and reasoning skills. They are like programmed drones, programmed to think in ideological cliches until the results of their programming suddenly fail them, or someone they love. Not until.

It’s the same old God damned fucking story. And it is exactly what got us here.


Food Inc. is one of those blood curdling investigations of big business and its control of our food supply. It’s the story of corruption, monopoly, subsidies and disease.

Essentially the government has subsidized corn so that it is overproduced and shoved into everything. We need to end these subsidies. Stop paying for food we don’t need and that isn’t healthy. Stop subsidizing giant corporations so that they can control our food and squeeze out all the small competitors. Stop the corruption.

“The industrial food is not honest food.”

Sums up the situation.

The film moves onto Monsanto’s evil empire of Terminator Seeds (TM), the RoundUp assault, and the corporate war on independent farmers. These subjects are covered in other films, and this seems like a general audience intro to the subject of corporate food. It’s not novel, but it is thorough in covering its bases.

Of course, Americans are largely too stupid to demand the Right to Know what the hell they’re eating and feeding to their children. I remember the California ballot measure, and I was on my campus giving out information. The bullshit industry propaganda had already reached the sheeple. Some of them argued in favor of systemic ignorance, against their own interests and on behalf of GMO manufacturers.

How did our society become so propagandized that educated people go to absurd lengths to fight against their own right to know what’s in their food? Mis-educated, I suppose, would be more accurate.

The legal assault, the batteries of lawyers abusing the law, openly fascistic corporate/state power abuses, is the chilling final section of Food Inc. Farmers cannot stand up to any of these multinational monsters. Legal fees quickly mount, $25k, $400k, over a million dollars! They can sue just to send a message. This is the expression of fascism, which Mussolini defined as corporatism. Corporations using government to abuse the people, that’s fascism. That’s America.

The movie tries to strike an upbeat final note. Consumers got Walmart to introduce organic products. It is difficult however to swallow an upbeat ending to such a devastating and sickening main event.

Parallel World of the Pro-GMO Evangelist


The case for GM cannot be made in terms of better yields, less chemical inputs, safety, impact on the environment, nutritional value or improved farmers’ incomes, so the tactic is to denigrate alternative solutions.

…Whether in academia or elsewhere, mouthpieces for their transnational agribusiness masters have no shame in churning out misinformation and cheap slurs to forward a pro-GM agenda that is based on fraud and a subversion of science, as documented in Steven Druker’s book ‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truths’. And this agenda does not possess overwhelming support within science, despite the claims of GM supporters. This much has been made clear by Food & Water Watch and by Druker himself in a recent TV debate and his follow up points here.
