Yes on 522 Strategy ~ A Rebuttal

Yesterday, Jon Rappoport published a valid-question-riddled piece called “Are GMO Ballot Measures Just Another Covert Op?” Regular blog readers know that I am a fan of the GMO ban rather than labeling; however, I’m also a realist that the fluoridated, brainwashed, chemtrailed, GMO’d, drugged and hypnotized state of the vast majority of US citizens makes that highly, highly unlikely as an initial goal. Not gonna happen here, not right now.

Based on face-to-face conversations I’ve had with lawmakers to educate them about GMO’s, as well as witnessing the amazing awakenings of people once they clean up their diets, I do have hope that mandatory GMO labels could provide the catalyst for a larger awakening and eventual demands for bans. (To the sound of virtually zero media fanfare, Hawaii County recently banned all GMO crops except the papaya already growing there, so signs of sanity do occasionally arise.) When I spoke with lawmakers in Wisconsin about raw dairy and GMO’s, I watched them literally curl their lips and push back their snacks when I confirmed what they had in front of them contained genetically modified organisms. They were completely grossed out. Once people understand the perversion that GMO’s are, what they do to the body, and how they poison the environment as well as the person consuming them, no one wants that crap.

Until some of the fog clears away, though, labels at the very least make people aware of something they’re too innocent to realize even exists to know to avoid. Once they begin avoiding it, they begin to avoid other things. For many people, eating organic food acts as the gateway to Matrix-free thoughts, emotions, decisions and living. It doesn’t happen overnight. I wish it had happened decades ago, but I have seen it happen many, many, many times with clients, friends, and even family members whom I never would have expected to commit to organic foods. Their dietary shifts have awakened new levels of awareness in all sorts of areas, not just food.

I personally know the videographer for the Yes on 522 campaign in Washington State. He’s an incredibly sincere guy with a functioning BS detector. Would he (and I, too) love for the world to exist where we could all just call a spade a spade? Of course. But the audience for this campaign is the general public. (Click here to see some recent interviews with that public about “Obamacare vs. the Affordable Care Act,” and yes, they are the exact same thing, although you’d never know it from these “informed” voters! Not only do they have zero appreciation for the subtleties of the healthcare debate; they are convinced they’re unequivocally for and against the exact same law. This is the voting population we’re dealing with.)

Below I’ve copied in the comment Mitch left on Jon’s blog. Apologies for typos, but these people are sincere, and given the underhanded tactics of Monsanto and the ridiculously easily hypnotized masses, I believe their strategy has merit. Ultimately, banning GMO’s is the way to go, but really? In the US, with the average manipulated and uninformed voter? At least get more of the population aware of the effects of GMO’s. Once people discover the superior taste, nutrition, quality and clarity of local, organic, real foods, the veils begin to drop.

Mitch also assures me that there is a grassroots information campaign beyond the official campaign videos and flyers. Even if a movement gets co-opted to varying degrees like Occupy and Anonymous, there’s still potential that the co-opting backfires. In this world of conspiracies, charades and sheer absurdity, it’s tempting to become so cynical that we grow suspicious of everyone. Now that’s a psyop! Divide and Conquer has so far worked reliably well in this country. Except when it doesn’t. Yes on 522: let’s do this!

Mitch Mattraw:

I’m the videographer for all online content for the yeson522 initiative, I work closely with Elizabeth Larder.

Jon, I love you man! have followed you for a long time and………no, 522 it’s not a soft op, David ‘Dr’ Bronner has given $2M, as you know, no one is more of a warrior to push back against corporate control of our society than David, he know this would be a soft sell campaign from the get go and yet he went all in.

Yes, it’s been frustrating to have to leave on the cutting room floor heartfelt pleas from incredible farmer’s, some of the worlds best chef’s, food distributor’s, etc to keep the message simple for Joe over medicated, GMO, chemtrail, fluoride poisoned Joe, to let him know his beer won’t go up in price, the campaign hasn’t gone hardcore to expose the horror’s of GMO’s as Monsanto & Co would brand them as environmental terrorists and hammer that message home 24/7, game over yes?

So now, they’re fighting it out about transparency, choice and cost, going toe to toe, Monsanto is just waiting for a slip up, for the campaign to shift into a more activist posture, they’re praying to Lucifer for this so they can bring out their shill scientists plus the eco terrorists card, once you bring out the science guys in the lab coats on TV, American’s loose all sense of judgment, they’re scientists they must be right! And so, they haven’t gone down that ave.

Yes it is a soft sell so even in the end if 10s of thousand’s of people wake up to the horrors of GMO’s from this, go further with it etc then it’s a success and not necessarily taking energy, resources away from other full on activist campaigns, the two easily complement each other, it’s not one vs another which I feel your not seeing Jon, although it is true in England they’ve had labeling forever and Monsanto does just fine there but this is different, people woke up one day years ago to find labels on their food, easy come, easy go?

This is being fought for every step of the way so sure it’s a soft sell but when those labels are rolled out in 2014, a whole state is aware and proud that they participated to make this happen so that’s alot of energy moved for positive outcome where there wasn’t any discourse on a large scale before.

Another extremely important factor that I feel you’re not seeing, this is a state breaking from the ranks of federal control, yes, it’s a soft sell but Washington Sate is showing the rest of the country it has the spine to give the finger to the fed’s on legalizing pot, equality in marriage and now this, we will probably pay dearly for this with some HARRP induced earthquake like Colorado has paid dearly for their continuing defiance to big brother, do you still [think] this is soft sell?

Blessings and love to all.
