From Three Readers

The following links and/or information came through from three different readers almost simultaneously yesterday afternoon, with suggestions or requests that I post the material. Given the curious timing of three such requests within three minutes of each other, I thought I would, indeed, post them together. Some will require a click-thru to view. The third is a personal email detailing the personal struggles of a family in the Philippines after a second typhoon destroyed the other half of their home destroyed in the devastating 2013 typhoon. Even if you decide not to take 3D world action in any of these three cases, if you feel led to do so, please at least offer some prayers and energy in their direction. If you feel led to offer something else, then please let your heart guide you. Thanks and blessings, Laura

From reader Allison, who lives on Kauai:

Hi love! I hope all is well with you!!! 🙂

I wasn’t sure if you saw this without facebook so I thought I would send your way.
XOXOXOXO

From reader Karen:

I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Food Babe or not, but she’s a good resource and works tirelessly to benefit us all.  It sure feels like she could use some of our love right now.   I don’t know exactly why I’m sharing this with you, but it seemed like the thing to do. 
Hope things are wonderful in your corner of paradise,
Karen

Karen included a forwarded group email from “Food Babe,” aka Vani. When I followed her links and saw the vitriol and aggressive misogyny being sent her way via twitter, photos, emails and comments, I was appalled. This led me to research some of what Vani has been fighting for, because clearly, the BM’s (big “masters”) of the patriarchal cesspool have ordered their low life poops peeps to target her. Karen’s right: Vani’s a good resource and has been working tirelessly to benefit us all, but no one deserves the kind of treatment she’s received. Here’s the forwarded email, with working links:

Subject: A very emotional weekend

On Saturday I spent 10 hours stuck to my desk pouring out my heart and soul into a blog post I never thought I would have to write. Given the recent events, it’s time you know the truth, how I feel and how I am responding to the recent attacks on me and our movement.

There is a massive smear campaign going on across social media and media outlets to discredit all the work we have accomplished in creating a safer and more transparent food system. Part of the reason I am responding now is because their messages have started to infiltrate the mainstream media. I know many of you have been waiting for this response so you too can have the information on how to defend our position and address these hatred groups, skeptics and misguided people.

Rest assured, I will not let them distract us from the real issues at hand or let them silence us. To those of you that have defended our movement through countless discussions on the web, in forums and social media – I THANK YOU!

WARNING: The images in this post are VERY GRAPHIC and OFFENSIVE. I almost didn’t share these screenshots, but my team who deals with this vitriolic behavior on a daily basis wanted to make sure you saw just a glimpse of what we are experiencing.

Read this brand new post here.

I cannot do what I am doing alone, without you I am nothing.

Thank you again for standing by my side. The truth shall prevail.

Xo,

Vani

P.S. Given the nature of the environment we are in, we need your reinforcing support more than ever. I have started a special group on Facebook and I invite you to join here.

This group is a place where members of this movement can meet, ask questions, post news stories, petitions, events, healthy recipes, and share their personal stories. It’s an encouraging place where we can support each other in navigating this over processed world during our journey to a healthier life. When you join, feel open to introduce yourself. The more we share, the more we’ll learn from one another.

From reader, Sky:

This is Sky.  I am writing to you regarding a family of 17 made homeless by Typhoon Ruby on Saturday.  This family of 17 people, ranging from toddlers to grandparents, once lived in 3 homes in Tacloban City, Philippines.  They are relatives of Herb Hamilton a man in Florida whom I’ve known for several years.  After last year’s typhoon, 2 of this family’s homes were destroyed and only “half” of the third home remained.  For the past year, all 17 relatives were scraping by in the half a home that was left.  Then, last Saturday, Typhoon Ruby struck, destroying the “half” of the home they were living in.  Now they are all homeless.  They don’t even have a manger to huddle in.
If you could send just $5 to the gofundme page Herb set up to help his relatives, it would be a real blessing.  Herb has dyslexia, so it isn’t easy for him to gather his thoughts on paper.  Hopefully, you can see beyond his writing skills to the critical need to help his wife’s relatives.  Herb and his wife Bing are their relatives’ only source of financial help.
Despite our own difficult financial situation, we donated $5.  Perhaps you and other people you know could, too?  Here is the link to Herb’s gofundme webpage:  http://www.gofundme.com/iczoa4
Thank you very much,

Jon Rappoport ~ Chemical warfare: the State of Hawaii vs. the people

One of Jon’s best. It would be hilarious if it weren’t so unfortunately true. I love his proposal for Poetic Justice. Meanwhile, I seriously wonder what it will take to win this lawsuit. Between the Monsanto corruption and the looming TPP treaty that would undermine all local, state and national sovereignty in favor of corporate profits, I truly wonder: what will it take? Magick? There are spells for winning lawsuits. Miracle? There are prayers for mercy. A collective Novena? There are Runes for success in battle. Or do we sit and do nothing, trying to choke down Monsanto’s latest propaganda without puking our guts out?

Gag me. Oh, wait! No need if it’s Monsanto food. My gag reflex should be automatic by now.

Chemical warfare: the State of Hawaii vs. the people
by Jon Rappoport

November 25, 2014

NoMoreFakeNews.com

Barry Kurren is the federal judge overseeing Monsanto’s lawsuit against the county of Maui.

Monsanto sued, after the people of Maui dared to say no. After they voted to stop new Monsanto/Dow GMO development on the Island.

This is the same Judge Barry Kurren who ruled against the people of Kauai in a similar case.

As the New York Times put it (8/26/14): “A federal judge in Hawaii has struck down a local ordinance that would have restricted or regulated the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops on the island of Kauai, saying the measure was pre-empted by state law.

“United States Magistrate Judge Barry M. Kurren wrote in one of his two related decisions…‘The court’s ruling simply recognizes that the State of Hawaii has established a comprehensive framework for addressing the application of restricted-use pesticides and the planting of G.M.O. crops, which presently precludes local regulation by the county.’”

Precludes. Local. Regulation.

Ah yes, jurisdiction. Which government entity can decide how much pesticide poison the people of Hawaii should be exposed to? Local, state, or federal?

Judge Kurren shifted the “legal problem” to the State of Hawaii, meaning the government, not the people.

Apparently, because of “jurisdiction,” the people have no right to resist the spraying of poison. This is, you see, a game in which certain chess pieces are superior to other chess pieces, and the bigger and superior ones make the decisions.

Does this give you a clue about what Judge Barry Kurren is going to do to the people of Maui?

Exactly what was and is happening on the Island of Kauai? Dr. Lorrin Pang helps to answer the question. Pang is a Maui County District Health Officer:

“It was disclosed during the class action suit of a biotech company on Kauai that 80+ chemicals are used.”

Dr. Pang is referring to pesticides sprayed on the Island of Kauai. 80.

What are their names? Unknown.

What are their chemical formulas, as revealed by independent investigators? Unknown. Because there is no independent investigation.

Who does know what’s going on? The biotech giants who are doing secret research on Kauai.

The First Hawaiian Bank, on its website, names these giants in glowing terms: “Kauai is an ideal research laboratory for the seed corn industry…there are currently five parent seed corn operations on the island: Pioneer Hi-Bred…Syngenta, Dow Monsanto, and BASF. Dow Agrosciences recently leased 3,400 acres of former sugar land…”

And oh yes. Judge Barry Kurren’s wife, Faye, is a board member of the First Hawaiian Bank.

The giants say to the people: “We’re spraying you with chemicals. We can’t tell you what they are. It’s a secret. But don’t worry, be happy.”

I’m not a scholar when it comes to traditional Hawaiian spiritual beliefs, but I’m going to make a wild guess and say the secret spraying of chemicals on the people is not part of that tradition.

And jurisdiction issues, which come down to which government entity is going to make the people sicker…well, that’s just a cheap hustle to accommodate Monsanto and its partners.

Wait. Newsflash. Apparently, we do know something about the restricted-use pesticides (RUPs) sprayed on Kauai. From stoppoisoningparadise.org:

“Atrazine, for example, is known to cause birth defects, cancer and reproductive issues. Lorsban is known to cause impaired brain and nervous system functions in children and fetuses, even in minute amounts. Some RUPs are shown to effect brain cancer, autism, and heart and liver problems. Children are at especially high risk of illness from pesticide exposure. For these reasons, many of the RUPs used on Kaua’i are banned in other countries.”

All the upcoming court hearings in the Maui-Monsanto suit should be conducted in the following fashion:

The people of Maui, their lawyers and experts should view and take part in the proceedings from, chemically speaking, the cleanest spot that can be found on the Island.

Via Skype, they would watch Judge Kurren, the Monsanto lawyers and their experts, who would sit under heavy spraying of the Monsanto/Dow pesticides. All day long.

Just like in real life.

No coughing allowed.

After all, everybody on Monsanto’s side knows these chemicals are completely harmless. They might even be good for health. They might have a beneficial tonic effect. Who knows? They might be a cure for cancer and heart disease.

You bet. And Monsanto might be the corporate reincarnation of an ancient god, come back to save the people from…clean food and a healthy life.

I’m all for labeling GMOs—only my label would be different. It would read, in very large letters: “This food product is from Monsanto. They fiddled and diddled with it. They made sure it was sprayed with poison. Do you want to ingest it? Are you sure? Check your head. Are you completely crazy? Suicidal? Did you know Monsanto is subjecting the people of Hawaii to chemical warfare?”

That’s a nice label. It would improve my “shopping experience.”

Dear Judge Kurren: which jurisdictional government entity would approve my label?
