When Everything Is a Lie (2010)

"From pollution to politics, the era of deception and duplicity has reached new heights and hijacked almost every form of media in the world. In the last frontiers for truth such as the internet, disinformation operations are in full swing to discredit and destroy any semblance of authentic and factual information available to the public."

DHS to be granted total dictatorial power in immigration bill, all laws nullified, voters silenced

J.D. Heyes
Natural News
22 May 2013

"There has been a lot of rhetoric on both sides of the issue regarding the current "immigration reform bill" that the Senate has taken up, but one thing you likely haven't heard about at all is the scope and breadth of power the massive 850-page-plus measure contains. Simply put, if it becomes law, it will give the Department of Homeland Security near-dictatorial powers."

FBI and Wiretap Law Expansion

Joe Mullin

30 April 2013

"In the new proposal, which is still in draft form, not only would installing backdoors be mandatory, there would be fines for companies that didn't comply. The exact amount isn't clear, but it would consist of "a series of escalating fines, starting at tens of thousands of dollars." It gets worse: "After 90 days, fines that remain unpaid would double daily."

Beekeeper raided by Illinois Department of Agriculture when he was not home and without due process: queen bees destroyed

Commentary by Tom Kocal
Prairie Advocate News
27 April 2012

“For the past 15 years, Ingram said he has been conducting research on the effects of Round-Up on honeybees. He feels he had accumulated the necessary data to document the fact that Round-Up was not only the cause of his bees dying, but also possibly the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)...

"CCD is a calamity that is affecting honeybee colonies across the nation. In fact, I had one queen, which had survived three summers of spraying and three winters. I was planning to raise daughters from that queen to see if she may have had some genetic resistance to Round-Up. But she and her hive were taken during the theft. I don’t even know where the bees and my equipment are. They ruined 15 years of my research."”

And Because the Idea of Patenting Seeds Still Sickens...

Eamon Murphy
Daily Finance

"What the company doesn't mention when touting the effects of its technology is the price paid by others for its profits (which were $1.48 billion in this latest quarter, up 22 percent from a year ago). According to the CFS, "From 1995-2011, the average cost to plant one acre of soybeans has risen 325 percent." Roundup Ready soybean seeds were introduced in 1996. The costs of planting other crops have skyrocketed as well, as consolidation in the seed business has left 53 percent of the global market in the hands of three corporations: Monsanto, DuPont (DD), and Syngenta (SYT). In that period prices shot up 516 percent for cotton, and corn seed prices rose by 259 percent. (Seventy percent of the corn and cotton grown in the U.S. is Roundup Ready, according to The New York Times.) In 2010, the spike in prices prompted an antitrust investigation of the seed industry, focused on Monsanto. That inquiry was closed last November, with no charges being brought."
