Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US Government

February 26, 2011

WikiLeaks Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US GovernmentRecent Wikileaks cables are typically associated with information leaks related to U.S. war strategy, and foreign policy, which has led some people to conclude that leaked information of this nature is a possible threat to national security.

But in this case, Wikileaks cables leaked information regarding global food policy as it relates to U.S. officials — in the highest levels of government — that involves a conspiracy with Monsanto to force the global sale and use of genetically-modified foods.

In 2007, then-U.S. ambassador to France Craig Stapleton conspired to retaliate against European countries for their anti-biotech policies. U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks reveal the Bush administration formulated battle plans to extract revenge against Europe for refusing to use genetically modified seeds.

In the leaked cable, Stapleton writes: “Europe is moving backwards not forwards on this issue with France playing a leading role, along with Austria, Italy and even the [European] Commission…Moving to retaliation will make clear that the current path has real costs to EU interests and could help strengthen European pro-biotech voice.”

Ambassador Stapleton goes on to write: “Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory,” he wrote.

Author of Seeds of Deception Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US GovernmentJeffrey Smith, Author of Seeds of Deception

In an interview with Amy Goodman at Democracy Now, Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology notes how he’s been saying for years that the United States government is joined at the hip with Monsanto, pushing GMOs as part of Monsanto’s agenda on the rest of the world.

“This lays bare,” notes Smith, “the mechanics of that effort. We have Craig Stapleton, the former ambassador to France, specifically asking the U.S. government to retaliate and cause some harm throughout the European Union. And then, two years later, in 2009, we have a cable from the ambassador to Spain from the United States asking for intervention there, asking the government to help formulate a biotech strategy and support the government—members of the government in Spain that want to promote GMOs, as well. And here, they specifically indicate that they sat with the director of Monsanto for the region and got briefed by him about the politics of the region and created strategies with him to promote the GMO agenda.”

Although GM corn was the first seed that was approved for widespread planting in the European Union — specifically (GM) maize (NK 603, MON 810, MON 863) — individual countries stepped forward to ban these seeds. And so, in 2007, Smith claims Monsanto and the boitech industry, with the help of the U.S. Government, formulated a strategy to force these countries to accept the first of the genetically modified seeds.

Since then, there’s been more evidence — which we reported on in January of 2010 — showing that this genetically modified corn damages mice and rats, and can cause reductions of fertility, smaller litter sizes, smaller offspring, and immune responses. As Smith observes, these concerns have been ignored by both the European Food Safety Authority and the United States FDA.

Study Concludes Three Monsanto GM Corn Varieties Toxic to Mammals

The Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering participated in a study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences which demonstrates the toxicity in mammals of three genetically modified corn varieties from Monsanto.

Researchers concluded that these three GMOs (GM maize NK 603, MON 810, and MON 863) are not safe enough to be distributed commercially because the kidneys and liver in rats displayed toxicity levels when exposed to all three GM corn varieties. Other effects were also noticed in the heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system.

Smith adds that with MON 810 corn, “they found that there was a gene that is normally silent that is switched on and now creates an allergen in corn. They found 43 different genes that were significantly up-regulated or down-regulated, meaning that there’s massive changes in these crops and they’re not being evaluated by the U.S.—by the FDA or any other regulatory authority around the world before being put onto the market.”

The Telegraph reports that in other newly released cables, US diplomats around the world are found to have pushed GM crops as a strategic government and commercial imperative.

US Embassy Lobbied Pope to Approve GM Crops

John Vidal, environment editor for the Telegraph writes: Cables from the US embassy in the Vatican show that the US believes the pope is broadly supportive of the crops after sustained lobbying of senior Holy See advisers…The US state department special adviser on biotechnology as well as government biotech advisers based in Kenya lobbied Vatican insiders to persuade the pope to declare his backing.

“A Martino deputy told us recently that the cardinal had co-operated with embassy Vatican on biotech over the past two years in part to compensate for his vocal disapproval of the Iraq war and its aftermath – to keep relations with the USG [US government] smooth. According to our source, Martino no longer feels the need to take this approach,” says the cable.

monsanto Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US GovernmentCables Show US Diplomats Working Directly for Monsanto

Wikileaks cable reads: “In response to recent urgent requests by (Spanish rural affairs ministry) state secretary Josep Puxeu and Monsanto, post requests renewed US government support of Spain’s science-based agricultural biotechnology position through high-level US government intervention….”

As Smith points out, they’ve been — meaning US GOVT officials, Monsanto, and the biotech industry — working around the world to try and influence policy on every single continent.

Spain and the US have worked closely together to persuade the EU not to strengthen biotechnology laws. In one cable, the embassy in Madrid writes:

“Spain was the first EU country to grow genetically modified (GM) corn and now cultivates nearly 75 percent of the EU’s MON810 corn crop – nearly 200,000 acres. During a May 13 meeting with Monsanto’s Director for Biotechnology for Spain and Portugal, Embassy officials were told that Spain is increasingly becoming a target of anti-biotechnology forces within Europe and that Spain’s cultivation of MON810 corn was under serious threat. The sentiment echoed by supporters of agricultural biotechnology regarding a ban on MON810 cultivation in Spain is that “If Spain falls, the rest of Europe will follow.”

As The Telegraph notes, the cables show that not only did the Spanish government ask the US to keep pressure on Brussels but that the US knew in advance how Spain would vote, even before the Spanish biotech commission had reported.

blackwater Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US Government

Blackwater’s Black Ops For Monsanto

In a must read article written by Jeremy Scahill for The Nation, Scahill claims Blackwater, through Total Intelligence, sought to become the “intel arm” of Monsanto, offering to provide operatives to infiltrate activist groups organizing against the multinational biotech firm.

Scahill is an American investigative journalist and author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army. Scahill says the coordinator of Blackwater’s covert CIA business, former CIA paramilitary officer Enrique “Ric” Prado, set up a global network of foreign operatives, offering their “deniability” as a “big plus” for potential Blackwater customers, according to company documents.

U.S. Food Safety Czar Wikileaks: GMO conspiracy reaches highest levels of US GovernmentOur U.S. Food Safety Czar is a Former Monsanto Executive

If after reading these incriminating Wikileaks cables conforming that US government officials at the highest levels are working directly with Monsanto, and the biotech industry to control the world’s food supply with genetically modified foods, ask yourself why our current Food Safety Czar, Michael Taylor, is the former Monsanto executive who crafted the FDA’s GMO friendly policy while serving as the FDA’s Deputy commissioner for policy.

Taylor also wrote the FDA’s guidelines on recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), banning dairies from labeling their milk “rBGH Free“.

Additionally, as Jeremy Smith points out in his interview with Amy Goodman, the person who was in charge of FDA policy in 1992, Monsanto’s former attorney, Michael Taylor, allowed GMOs on the market without any safety studies and without labeling, and the policy claimed that the agency was not aware of any information showing that GMOs were significantly different.

Seven years later, says Smith, because of a lawsuit, 44,000 secret internal FDA memos revealed that that policy was a lie. “Not only were the scientists at the FDA aware that GMOs were different, they had warned repeatedly that they might create allergies, toxins, new diseases and nutritional problems. But they were ignored, and their warnings were even denied, and the policy went forth allowing the deployment GMOs into the food supply with virtually no safety studies.”

    Controlling the world’s food supply is the U.S.’s plan to continue to control the world economy after the US dollar completely tanks. Obviously, the U.S.’s plan to control the world’s food supply has been in place for some time and explains why that despite the dramatic negative health consequences of GMO and Roundup, that Monsanto’s agenda of corporate seeds of greed and poisoning the world is being pushed on every continent. Monsanto, the U.S. government and the particular money controllers behind the U.S. government are one in the same. It is now more important than ever to work as hard as we can to stop GMO, Roundup, Monsanto and the US’s influence on the global food market.

    Hmm. GMO foods, pharmaceuticals, false sweeteners, and toxic chemicals. Who are these people? They surely must be dying of this poison themselves? Are they just poisoners at the cost of their own lives and those of their children? Whatever you see on the commercials on television the most often, those are the drugs and those are the products that are probably evil to the core. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/06/kiddie-antidepr/ http://www.citizen.org/documents/fortune500_2002erport.PDF This apparently is some kind of crazy scheme that relies on voluntary participation and consumption and I am not sure if there is another way out other than simply declining to eat that food and declining to eat their drugs. People will need to virally organize in order to find ways to manage not to consume these things. I think a lot of these companies set up shop during/after WWII. Bayer for sure was involved in manufacturing the poison gas, and I’m not sure how much the company changed after the war. Other companies I’m sure made much use of the postwar surplus of chemicals etc. I think a big part of all of this is probably collecting giant schemes of information. Google, drones, etc play a big part in this (note to end times prophecy people hmmm al-Masih ad-Dajjal being one-eyed? unnaturally centralized giant surveillance of everything?) . Look into the CIA’s Insurance Intelligence Unit of WWII, and the insurance intelligence war the documents were declassified like during Clinton?? Interesting stuff!

    Europe has had a long history of being more stringent about safety than America, and America has a long history of not listening to them, with the result that we always end up looking stupid. Guess who banned DDT first? Europe, guess who ended up looking like idiots after Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring? America. Do you see where I am going with this? The fact of the matter is, when they ban something they are nearly always right. And thus they are healthier, wealthier (the Euro for all it’s problems is still nearly twice the dollar), and wiser than us. Oh and their food tastes better too, believe me, I was there this summer (in Southern France, Germany, Denmark and Norway). Also, where do Europeans get their food? not the supermarket (although they have those, hardly anyone actually buys food there). They get it at the fifty billion markets stationed in every plaza and the innumerable bakeries (one on every corner, four on some corners). Even Aix-en-Provence, a small city even by their standards (almost a town by our standards) had 3 open-air farmer’s markets and a separate fish market plus about a hundred bakeries (literally one on every corner in the areas zoned for businesses, often two or more per corner). Also, sodas in Europe are made with sugar, not corn syrup which makes them so much healthier (and they have about 5 ingredients instead of ten or more like American sodas do). Which brings me to my other point: Europe is famous for improving on American stuff. We might do well to take a leaf out of their book. For example: even their fast-food is healthier and tastier; ever heard of paninis? it’s a sandwich, but grilled, so it’s even better, and takes about 2 minutes to make max. meanwhile you can flirt with the hottie behind the counter (or standing next to you in line) behind the counter. Also, gelato, which is better than ice cream and healthier too (since most of it is non-dairy and by default low-fat). Also, crepes, the ultimate healthy fast food. And Nutella is also their invention, which is like the best thing ever done with chocolate. So yeah, Europeans just win at life, at least right now, which is why we should try to be more like them. Which means we should A) halve the distance that our food travels, even their supermarket food comes from Israel, which is about half the distance between California and the East Coast (don’t believe me, go to Google Maps and use the little scale to measure the distances, it is literally half the distance from Tel Aviv to Paris as Sonoma County to Boston). And Israel also raises and kills their animals in humane ways (about as humane as it could get). Their burgers are grass-fed (and thus tastier) and their chickens are free range. This was not of course intentional on the part of the Eurozone, just an accident of human geography (Judaism requires animals to be humanely raised and killed, and Israel follows the ancient kosher laws to the letter, they also happen to be the most efficient producers of just about everything). B) get rid of the stupid corn subsidies, they help no one, not the consumers not the farmers and not the earth. C) get rid of the supermarkets and encourage local markets and businesses, they have invested interests in making sure our food stays delicious and healthy, supermarkets do not. D) up the ante on fast food, it’s not like Europeans don’t have the concept, there are smoothie stands, gelato stands, crepe stands, sandwich stands everywhere in Europe, which is wonderfully convenient. E) keep prices on the good stuff low, by making people pay the real cost of their food. I got a locally made baguette (made on the premises actually, from wheat grown on the owner’s farm) for 1 Euro, try getting a baguette for the equivalent of a Euro (around a dollar fifty) here, yep, not going to happen. I also bought fancy Swiss chocolate (Fair Trade, and Organic) for a couple Euros, and a dozen peaches for about 5 euros. Europeans do not fuck around when it comes to food, they value it too much. It is the cornerstone of their culture (France alone produces over a hundred distinct kinds of cheese and more varieties of wine, and that’s not even including the Swiss, German and Italian cheeses and wines, or the English cheeses which are also quite excellent). They value their heirloom varieties (I have never ever seen so many tomato colors, ranging from buttercup yellow to deep purple all in one place: a market in Aix). They even have certificates that protect the various wines, cheeses and heirloom produce varieties (It’s not champagne unless it was grown in Champagne, sorry Napa Valley). France alone has ten different kinds of mustard, and considering mustard doesn’t even grow in half the country that is impressive. Spain has about twenty unique varieties if not more. Each country raises nearly all it’s own food, in ecologically sustainable ways (there is no such thing as “organic” in Europe because they don’t use pesticides to begin with). There is also no such thing as plus-size clothing because they don’t need it, seeing as there are very few plus-sized people. just saying.

      While I generally agree that European food is better than American food, some of the stuff you’re saying is just not true. No such thing as organic? Don’t use pesticides? No country in Europe provides more ecologically sustainable food than in America. Here we have the same problems with organic farms as they do in the US – excessive paper work and permits. GMO’s are generally banned in Europe, but there are tons of loops holes that let them in one way or another. Industrial farming is alive and well in Europe. But yea, there are no plus size clothing shops.

    Wikileaks sent the information to the mainstream media outlets who then published them. The sad fact is, if mainstream media decides not to print something, whether it’s true or not, the vast majority of people are never going to read it. So why is it that Wikileaks is so much worse than the major outlets?

    I figured there had to be a connection for this ‘devil’ corporation to get what they want from the FDA.
    Over a year ago, I did a bit of research on Monsanto. This company scares me to no end. I am in Canada and this company exerts a lot of pressure here as well as USA.
    I stopped eating corn and corn by products, soy and foods containing soy and threw out canola oil. I wash my produce by socking with a wash and rinsing twice. I will not eat farmed fish and I use krill oil rather than flaxseed. The only beef or chicken I eat are not fed corn products, hormones and roam free. After seeing a video of someone using a pitchfork on cows to get them to move in the tightest cages possible, my conscience will not allow me to BUY meet from animals so badly treated.
    When I shop I ask about non GMO foods and usually I am looked at strangely, even in a store that caters to bulk bins of dry foods. I of course insist that if they want my business, they must carry more products that are non GMO. I do not buy processed foods except for cereal and some bread. After a year of this, I feel more energetic and love that I am free of wanting processed foods. However what good will my efforts be if governments interfere on behalf of biotechnical corporations and particularly Monsanto.
    It seems to me, we will be forced simply by not having anything decent unless we grow our own food which is not viable for city people.

I assure you New World Globalists that you will never defeat My God-JESUS because the children of God will not die but shall live to tell wat the Lord has done(Psalms 118:17) whether your GMO’s are consumed or not.Shame on you and your conspiracies. In the end you will die and forever and we shall live in HIM JESUS forever.So either way you lose.When we die young in Jesus Christ Iam assuring you we are still alive..Anyway we cant fight or stop your plans because the word of GOD has to come to pass.Read the entire book of REVELATIONS!!We are aware of your conspiracies right from Social media(FB,twitter linkedin,etc) Bigbrother, Contraceptives, GMO’s, Microchipping, Flouridated water, medicines,google earth name it….you will lose in the end just like your father of lie…SATAN!!!!

    • March 19, 2012 at 2:52 pm

      no one said anything about your God or anyone elses, as a Christian I take offense to the accusation that just because I want to better the world means that I am going against God. In fact I feel that in fighting Big Agriculture I am helping the Kingdom of God to come on Earth. I have read Revelations, and they said nothing about genetically modified foods. Nor do I think that I will lose out on Jesus just because I crusade against governmental stupidity. Now, believe what you want but this is not a conspiracy theory, this is real. What I said earlier about European foods is real, if you don’t believe me you can go to Aix-en-Provence and see for yourself. Nor am I a New World Globalist, in fact I am the opposite, more like an Old World Localist. I prefer the way people used to do things to the way people do them now, I stand up for small town America, for our actual values (as opposed to the bogus ones that politicians use to get elected). I am not allied with Satan, I am fighting Satan, in all his forms and one of his forms is artificially cheap GMO corn. I know nothing about the other conspiracy theories you mentioned, nor have I seen any signs that the apocalypse as described in Revelations has come or is coming. Rather I see a bright future for us and our children, the world will go on for now, this is not the end of it. This is simply something that we must take care of, another step towards our ultimate goal; just like the Civil Rights movement and the American Revolution. You don’t have to like our movement, you don’t even have to agree with us, but you DO NOT get to insult us, any more than we get to insult you. And I for one am insulted by your completely unfounded claim that I or anyone else in the movement am in league with Satan.

    America is just the home of the greater power of multi-national corporations, the originators of such organisms called corporations, the upholders of corporate law. All corporate law, not just Monsanto. Communist China, on the other hand legally defines its ‘Corporations’ quite differently. Question is: Does China use Monsanto products? Do the Chinese scientists approve? Will the Chinese empire spread these poisons all over Africa? Russia? China? Mongolia? Vietnam?Thailand? Around the world?
    If Monsanto products actually are a mechanism in population control, and hit the U.S.A. the hardest, first, before they are curtailed, is this bad? The average American consumes on a scale astonishingly higher than most Asians for example, and if they are limited this way, the rest of the world will have a larger share.
    Super-weeds1 This is a new plague, from Mother Nature, requiring farmers to go back to 2,4, D or worse poisons, even agent orange, to rid fields that were supposed to be weed free due to Monsanto’s favorite poisons and
    GM crops? Is this circular? Does it make sense?

    You might know that Vilsack, the head of USDA is also an ex Monsanto employee, and he just authorized the planting of GM Alfalfa. I wrote Senator Murray about the GMO crops,and here is her reply.

    Dear Mr. Smith:

    Thank you for your response to my letter about genetically engineered alfalfa. I appreciate the time you have taken to correspond with me.

    In my position as a United States Senator, I benefit by hearing a wide spectrum of opinions expressed by the citizens of Washington State and our nation. I listen carefully to the views of my constituents as I study each issue and decide how to vote on legislation which comes before the Senate. On any issue, I value your thoughts and ideas.

    As you know, Americans are looking to their representatives to work together on the important issues before us. I am confident we will succeed if we make a sincere effort to find common ground in our goals and priorities, and I want to assure you I am committed to doing so.

    Again, I appreciate your feedback. I have made note of your concerns, and I will certainly keep them in mind. Please keep in touch.

    Sincerely,
    Patty Murray

    I also told her about Vilsack being an ex Monsanto employee, which she neglected to mention in that reply, I thought it was a conflict of interest for him to be head of the USDA to approve the planting any GMO crops.

      You see, this ideology of Monsanto saving the world is a UN-backed one, and has been around since the “Green Revolution” in India in the early ’50s, which contaminated India’s farmland, impoverishing the soil, food and people as well. They did the exact same thing afterwards with most Third World nations through the UN tutelage programs, and then implemented the Frankenfood biotech to richer nations in the ’70s. Nothing new here (although this should be history!)…

      We in the United Stages are prisoners to news black outs and government cover ups with no Labeling of the poison known as GMO’s in our food supply.
      ORGANIC is currently GMO free and under attack by Politicians bought and paid for as either employees , ex-employees, or current board members of the same companies are quietly licensing all plant and animal life as copyrighted DNA material unable to be grown with out a license anywhere in the world.
      So we are ignorant as a public due to the mass cover up and sheer scale that billions will be made by a select few to deny food one day to the poor based on licensing laws and fees to have a garden.
      EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD THIS WILL OCCUR unless the EU fights back.
      The UNITED STATES is lost in my opinion until people start dying of organ failure.

      Want to stop this? Start to feel for us. Our swagger died out a long time ago- now we’re just telling ourselves we’re fine when we’re oppressed and completely hopeless- we’re easy to silence. We work and consume, and our taxes go to corporations that make us work and consume just like “Brave New World.” If you start to really feel compassion and see how we’re controlled and oppressed beyond the mask of plastic opulence and reach out to us and say you’re here for us… imagine how that would wake us up. What you see- how we let evil be committed… we’re not ‘letting’ anything. We’ve really lost the reins. Pity us publicly. That will end this.

        I pity you for believing that, it means you will never do anything except what they want you to. I am not someone who ever fit into the system so I have no option. Fortunately I do have the option to change things. I will take the reins, care to join me? check out my blog and twitter feed @thebakingfairy27 for more info on how.

    Their corn. Even when we don’t plant it. Monsanto plants will eventually spread into neighboring crops. They can then send out lawsuits or bills for using their products without paying for them.

    we should also be aware of artificially inflated food costs in general.. traders cause allot of food shortages…… research food as a weapon..

    Their goal is to have patents on the resource everyone needs – food.
    To charge us license fees to grow wheat, corn, rice etc.. They are indeed evil and greedy and should be avoided at all costs.

      The only difference between a vegan and a meat-eater that the former consumes GMO-crops directly, the latter does it by eating animals feed with GMO plus miryads of artifical hormones and antibiotics. What do you think, why we have so many babies having agressive cancer before their first birthday? My generation ate fresh fruits and vegetables from the backyard,drunk real milk from real cow. Our grandchildren are banned by doctors from “milk”,eggs,meat,faked cheese,faked butter, margarine etc. until they are two.The canned industrial “baby-food”proved uneatable for my ten-months old grandson. Perhaps he don’t like the taste of chemicals in it.So, what on earth can you give to him? Let him be starving?

        The government has not yet taken away our right to garden, or to buy from local farm stands/farmer’s markets. Find one, there should be one pretty close to you (they exist in most areas). Be the cool grandparents that have good food, your kids will look back on it with nostalgia, and will try and find it when they are older. They will try to recreate your salads and cookies (or whatever). I still look back on my grandfather’s carrot-raisin salad with nostalgia, and try to recreate it whenever possible. See, kids have a special relationship with their grandparents, because when they are little (like 5-10 yrs old) you will be the coolest adults in the world, waaay cooler than their parents who (in their view) know nothing about the way the world works. They will trust you and listen to you where they wouldn’t trust or listen to their parents. If you take them to a farm they will think it’s the coolest thing ever because they did it with you. And then once they associate the farm with the coolest people they know, they will think everything else about the farm is cool too. cook with them, they will think that’s cool if you do it. Besides, cooking and gardening and buying from local farms is what grandparents are supposed to do (think of the stereotypical grandparents like on TV or something). While your grandson is ten-months old is a great time to find that farmer’s market in your area, and then to get some carrots and peas and whatever else from it, mash them up and make a paste, he’ll eat that guaranteed. Learn canning and make your own applesauce (little kids love that stuff and it’s good for them too). Get a crock pot and make yogurt, (here’s how: http://www.macheesmo.com/2011/04/crockpot-yogurt/) cut up fruit (or mash up fruit depending on how well developed his teeth are) and put it in the yogurt for a delicious meal for a small child. As long as the milk is fresh from a small farm (but pasteurized, no raw milk for a baby, as it can contain rickets and other bad bacteria). Get potatoes from the farmer’s market and make mashed potatoes for him one night. You have plenty of options (though maybe more maybe less depending on where you live).

    Why are there no comments on this? It’s an article about a global conspiracy to manipulate our food sources for billions in profits. It’s shocking – this frankenfood will kill people for generations and lead to famines when the modified crops fail. We should be on a revolution just for this one article.

    I leave dried ear corn out for the squirrels to eat in the Illinois winter….they won’t touch it.

    • March 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm

      I once tried to give a squirrel some of my cornflakes, wouldn’t touch the things but instead went on munching the strawberry I was trying to distract him from. Sad when squirrels know more about our food than we do.
