The former US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton endorses GMOs at biotech conference and how the liberal elites have betrayed the American working class:
Recently the darling of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego expressing her support for genetically modified foods.
“I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record,” Clinton said. “The term genetically modified sounds Frankensteinish and turns people off. Drought resistant sounds really like something you'd want. There is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are” Clinton said. Only half a decade ago she was against GMOs but now that she is showing her true nature of politics by sucking up to those that pay the big bucks to support her campaign.
Clinton expressed her support to use federally-sourced financial subsidies in order to keep American companies from leaving the US. According to News sources, Clinton endorsed using taxpayer money for bailing out the giant Agrochemical companies when they make a bad investment (Similar to the way the Feds bailed out of the banks).
Not to mention that currently millions of dollars of taxpayer money goes to the pockets of giant agrochemicals for subsidizing toxic producing GMO corn. Apparently, Hillary believes that subsidizing GMO corn (that becomes high fructose corn syrup, junk food and Twinkies) isn’t enough and the Federal government should take things into a new level by bailing out the giant Agrochemicals (like Obama’s signature on Monsanto’s Protection Act in 2013 which gave biotech companies immunity from being prosecuted under the current legal system).
“We should get industry representatives around a table to have an “intensive discussion” about how the federal government could help biotechs with insurance against [financial] risk “Clinton said. That’s when giant biotech companies grew 11% just last year with the revenue of more than $262 billion.
Obviously the deep pockets of giant agrochemicals fail the 2016 presidential nominee to see “Frankenfoods” for what they are:
Hundreds of independent scientific studies and research have been warning the public about the toxicity of biotech herbicides and genetically modified cops. In fact, studies have shown that dangerous levels of bt Toxin and glyphosate are now in the rain water as well as blood and breast milk of mothers and their babies across US.
Other studies have shown that GMOs are losing their effectiveness to fight pests and weeds and therefore biotech is coming up with the second generation of GMOs those are resistant to more toxic chemicals.
GMOs have contaminated a third of US farm lands and the increase in use of toxic herbicides and chemicals is having a major effect on the entire ecosystem like killing millions of useful insects, lady bugs, bees and butterflies. Biotech had promised that GMOs will reduce the use of chemicals where as more and more toxic herbicides are being introduced into the market.
A vast range of independent journals and research have linked toxic producing Frankenfoods and Glyphosate to a wide range of chronic diseases including cancer, leukemia, gastrointestinal problems, obesity, malnutrition, allergies and asthma.
While 30 countries have banned GMOs and more than 60 other countries have labeled GMOs, biotech spends millions of dollars to kill GMO labeling movement in US. Thanks mostly to U.S. Congress members who care more about being elected that protecting their constituents and partly thanks to the voters who are not electing representatives that care about this issue.
How the deep pockets of giant corporations continue to buy elections and the ‘politicians’:
Hillary Clinton isn’t any different than any other politician from both major political parties since she knows the elections are expensive and without corporate money (from Wall Street, giant Ag, banks or AIPAC) she doesn’t have a chance. You probably remember liberals' darling Elizabeth Warren support of Israeli attacks on Gaza schools and hospitals which resulted in the deaths of more than 2200 people, mostly women and children: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/28/elizabeth-warren-defends-_n_5733164.html
This is what these politicians are and this is what they do for a living. The fact is that the Democratic Party, in particular liberal elites have betrayed the very same people who voted for them and they claimed to defend.
As Chris Hedges says “the Democratic Party used to watch out for the interests of labor and even for the poor. But that all changed under Bill Clinton. Although Clinton, like Obama, continues to speak in that feel-your-pain language of traditional liberalism, they've completely betrayed the very people that they purport to represent and defend”:
Democrats and in particular the so called ‘liberals’ have back-stabbed and betrayed the working class of America through NAFTA, outsourcing of the American jobs or destroying Union. The assaults against the American working class is only getting worse when you have public figures like Obama who present themselves as traditional liberals but cannot even respond to the abuse of power by corporate elites, chaotic economy, foreclosures, banking frauds and repossessions, or anything else.
That’s why Obama (despite his promises) couldn’t even label GMOs and instead ended up signing Monsanto’s protection act to law. The Affordable Care Act (which was supposed to provide Americans with healthcare) is now turned into the largest consolidation of private data in the US history. If you thought NSA data collection was intrusive, abuse of power, and without oversight, you are going to love Uncle Sam’s intrusive Trojan horse called 'Obamacare’: http://www.seattleorganicrestaurants.com/vegan-whole-food/intrusive-Obamacare-plan-is-the-largest-consolidation-of-personal-data-in-the-history-of-US.php
It is not all that surprising why in the Midterm election the Democrats have lost the Senate as well as the House majority. The truth is that not only people don’t want liberal elites, they no longer want to have anything to do with the liberal values that these elites are supposedly embracing.
