ST. LOUIS — Confidential contracts detailing Monsanto Co.'s business practices reveal how the world's biggest seed developer is squeezing competitors, controlling smaller seed companies and protecting its dominance over the multibillion-dollar market for genetically altered crops, an Associated Press investigation has found.
With Monsanto's patented genes being inserted into roughly 95 percent of all soybeans and 80 percent of all corn grown in the U.S., the company also is using its… Continue
While Americans worry about FEMA camps and Martial Law, two items I feel are pure fantasy, the world moves forward.
While individuals are side-tracked with Lucifer worshiping shape-shifting global networks of pedophilia interested aristocracy (also a fantasy) the global elitists continue their efforts at domination.
But what is it that they want to dominate? You and me? Well, one might say that but that's hardly the endgame.
That's the title of a best-selling book by F. William Engdahl, an economist and author and writer.

Mr. Engdahl contributes regularly to a number of publications including Asia Times Online, Asia, Inc, Japan's Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Foresight magazine; Freitag and ZeitFragen newspapers in Germany and Switzerland respectively. He is based in… Continue

When President Obama made his first post-election visit to San Francisco, two groups of protesters met him in Union Square. About 500 activists (the “Left”) carried signs, sang songs and chanted for an end to the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, for environmental action and Medicare for all.
Sharing space with us were about 250 “tea-baggers” (the “Right”) carrying anti-Obama signs. Their main issues were lower taxes and opposition to “government… Continue
I received a disturbing email yesterday regarding massive amounts of grain shipping out of the U.S. to foreign countries. Granaries that long stood idle are going full-bore. Miles and miles of rail cars are filled and ready to transport our wheat, oats and corn reserves for shipment out of… Continue
"We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends. Children will be taken from their parents at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. The sex instinct will be eradicated. Procreation will be an animal formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be… Continue
The “underpants bomber” has renewed calls for new and more invasive security measures. Already, there’s a push to install scanners that show travelers’ naked bodies through clothing, using either millimeter wave or backscatter X-ray imaging. But even those scanners might not have caught the terrorist who nearly brought down Northwest flight… Continue

The U.S. government staged the failed Christmas Day terror attack so that the United States wouldn’t have to transfer any more Guantanamo Bay detainees to Yemen, according to a well-known former Guantanamo Bay detainee.
Lakhdar Boumediene – who made headlines in 2008 when his Supreme Court case affirmed detainees’ rights to challenge their detentions in federal courts – told reporters on Monday that President Obama has “changed his mind” about closing Guantanamo Bay, and the… Continue

I try not to visit a place and then forget about the people and the struggle they are engaged in. Since my visit to Jeju Island, and the Gangjeong village last October, I have been closely following developments about the South Korean government's plan to build a Navy base where pristine coral reefs, fishing, and tangerine groves are now integral to the people's way of life.
The base construction is soon set to begin in Gangjeong. The villagers are currently setting up a tent camp… Continue

Here is a shocking statistic that you won't hear in most western news media: over the past nine years, more US military personnel have taken their own lives than have died in action in either the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan. These are official figures from the US Department of Defence, yet somehow they have not been deemed newsworthy to report. Last year alone, more than 330… Continue
Police officers were once seen as reassuring figures, like the fatherly Dixon of Dock Green.
Now it seems they are more likely to have a quite different effect - so much so that officers have been told not to talk about crime in case they frighten the public.
Home Office officials say discussing crime rates may make it less likely that the public will think officers are doing a good job. And that will make it harder for forces to hit the Government's target for increasing… Continue
