Consumers are demanding more and more fresh healthy food than ever before. In 2018, the organic food industry grew exponentially as people are using healthy food to combat both illnesses and other related health concerns. Americans eat organically because it does not normally contain the toxins and harmful elements that contribute to health risks, yet life begins in the seed and if the seeds are genetically modified and patented, the market on how humans eat is controlled by the 1% who live their life by a demonstrative agenda. Pay attention people⏤it gets interesting.
Weaponized Food is not limited to only fraudulent global suppliers, it’s grown here in the United States, and the USDA may act clueless, yet you can be sure, this alphabet soup group is equally complacent.

We are witnessing the CONTROL of our food, water, air and all basic essentials to a healthy lifestyle.

Organic food has always been popular, for eons of time people ate from home grown gardens, yet in the 1970’s a growing trend made it more commercialized. Farmers formed allies with state and regional standards to Certify Organic Food which meant the growers followed a set of moral standards and practices. By the 1990’s, these standards began to differ from certifier to certifier.
Through the development of the USDA National Organic Standard, the trends of corporate involvement began to accelerate, transforming the practices of organic growing all together.
The Organics have undergone a complete transformation from a movement to a $20 billion a year industry in the United States. Through the changes in control and ownership of food seeds along with the federal organic standards, we can begin to see a timeframe of about the late 1990’s as the US Department of Agriculture changed its state and regional standards. Many changes were well hidden, as the trend to transnational corporations grew⏤while very few organic brands resisted enormous buyout offers, remaining independent.
Who Really Owns The Organic Food Industry and Why is 40% of ALL Organic Food Tested Positive for “Prohibited Pesticides”?
The Weaponization of our food source began during the “seed form” as life begins in the seed. Just shortly after 1998, the transformation process of patented genetically engineered seeds were commercialized involving nearly 400 ownership changes from that time frame to present.

There are four companies who control over 60% of the global proprietary seed sales who have entered into a number of agreements to share patented and genetically engineered seed traits with each other…

…such as herbicide tolerance and expression of insecticidal toxins. They are: Bayer-Monsanto, Dow-DuPont, Chemchina, formally Syngenta and BASF.
China has two seed firms ranked in the top ten global sales. ChemChina and Longping High-Tech.
“The level of deception in the organic industry has reached epidemic proportions: a USDA study found that 40% of all organic food sold in the US tested positive for prohibited pesticides”.
According to the Cornucopia Institute, Dr. Phil Howard updates his popular infographic on the organic food industry.
“The latest version of Who Owns Organics has been released by Dr. Phil Howard, an Assistant Professor at Michigan State. Dr. Howard teaches in the University’s Community, Agriculture, Recreation and Resource Studies program. The latest update now includes the top 100 food processors in North America.
According to Dr. Howard, acquisitions and changes in the organic industry have been picking up this year. Hain Celestial has acquired Ella’s Kitchen, and Danone acquiring Happy Family just this month. And Hain Celestial’s CEO stated earlier this year that they intend to acquire several more firms in the range of $25 to $30 million.
Furthermore, notes Dr. Howard, Boulder Brands ( which is not a top 100 firm, but is publicly traded, and owns the brands Earth Balance and Udi’s), announced this year that they plan to invest in more natural and organic food companies.

The first wave of acquisitions of organic processors was concentrated between December, 1997 and October, 2002. This period coincides with the initial release of the draft USDA organic standards and its full implementation in October, 2002. A second wave of acquisitions in the organic sector has been occurring since 2012. Surprisingly few major corporate agribusinesses note ownership ties on their acquisitions’ product labels.

With no thanks to $1.9 trillion in blowout Democrat spending, America is experiencing four-decade high skyrocketing inflation, now at 8.3% compared with 1.7% inherited from Trump a mere year and a half ago when Biden took office. As for being “a different breed,” that’s a very welcome contrast with disastrous domestic and foreign policies his administration has already foisted…

Buffalo and NY State police authorities knew of the teen’s derangement and made some early efforts to corral him, but he still got loose. It’s they who should be held responsible, not Tucker Carlson. Mass shootings have become a common recurrence, it seems. This time last year, we experienced a similar number of mass shootings, on average ten per week. 2021 ended with 693 mass shootings, and there were 417 in 2019. What’s happened?

Race-Baiting Is the Name, and Gun-Grabbing Is the Game

Listening to Governor Hochul will leave an outsider to believe that Buffalo, NY, is filled with hatred and a place where there is the extremism of white people against black people, which is far from the truth. There should be crimes against criminal politicians who use isolated tragedies to advance their political platforms that feed into their nefarious agendas…

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control. While they’d have liked to “legitimize” their influence on media companies with edicts from a DHS Board, the ideological alignment of the major media companies is already working steadily to undermine…

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…
