Hillary Clinton Endorses GMOs
by Stephen Lendman
Independent studies show genetically modified foods and ingredients harm human health.
Reports indicate White House meals are organic. Michelle Obama's book titled "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America indicate the first family's commitment to organic (non-GMO) foods in their personal diet.
What they want the rest of America to eat is another story altogether - especially if Hillary is elected president in November 2016.
At a July 2014 biotech conference, she publicly endorsed GMOs saying "I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record."
She attacked GMO critics adding "(t)here is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are."
The Clinton and Bush II families ate organic foods. Walter Scheib was White House executive chef from 1994 - 2005.
He had "the professional challenge of fulfilling Hillary Clinton's mandate of bringing contemporary American cuisine and nutritionally responsible food to the White House," he said.
Nearly all foods used were gotten from local growers and suppliers. A small White House roof garden was used for produce grown without pesticides and fertilizers. Organic foods were prioritized.
First families continue getting wholesome pesticide/GMO-free foods while promoting frankenfoods hazardous to human health for Monsanto and other biotech giants.
In 2014, Organic Consumers Union associate director Katherine Paul said "(i)f Hillary Clinton intends to run for office in 2016, she should think carefully about supporting a food and farming system that is proven to be detrimental to public health."
Her view are "no different than those of previous administrations, including the Bush (II), Clinton, (Bush I) and Reagan administrations, and they are taken straight from the biotech industry's talking points."
Hillary's biotech/agribusiness ties surfaced in the 1980s as a Rose Law firm lawyer. Monsanto and Tyson Foods were clients.
As Secretary of State, her State Department heavily pressured other countries to use GMOs. Taxpayer money was used to promote them worldwide.
Big Lies were spread, hard truths suppressed. Industry talking points substituted for prioritizing food safety.
On May 17, the Washington Times said Hillary's biotech/agribusiness ties earned her the nickname "Bride of Frankenfood."
"In the GMO debate, Mrs. Clinton has consistently sided with the chemical companies," WT said.
Monsanto gave the Clinton Foundation from half a million to one million dollars - Ag giant Dow Chemical from one to five million dollars, according to Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation disclosures.
Numerous other corporate giants contributed large sums. Expect them donating handsomely to Hillary's presidential campaign.
She chose longtime Monsanto lobbyist Jerry Crawford to serve as advisor to her "Ready for Hillary" super PAC.
Earlier he worked for Bill Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry. He's involved in fighting small farmers judicially - to protect Monsanto's seed interests.
Throughout her professional career, especially in politics and as first lady, Hillary has been on the wrong side of major issues mattering most - including healthcare, safe food and promoting war over peace and stability.
It's not coincidental that she and Bill became super-rich after leaving the White House in 2001.
Financial disclosures show they earned over 3 million from 2001 - 2012 - including Hillary's years as New York senator and Secretary of State.
In speeches delivered since January 2014, they earned more than million. Hillary earned over million from her 2014 memoir, "Hard Choices."
During her White House years, she partnered in her husband's high crimes. She shamelessly self-promoted throughout her Washington years and since leaving government.
She unabashedly hawkish. In 1999, she urged Bill to bomb Belgrade. Straightaway post-9/11, she supported waging (phony) war on terror.
She supported Bush and Obama's worst crimes. She endorses nuclear weapons use. She calls them peacekeeping deterrents.
She earlier threatened Iran with total annihilation if it considered attacking Israel.
She wanted Gaddafi toppled. She urged genocidal war to eliminate him. She publicly gloated saying "(w)e came. We saw. He died."
She pushed for war on Syria to oust Assad. She outrageously compares Russia to Nazi Germany. She lies claiming Putin's aims are revanchist.
Her foundation took Saudi and Ukrainian oligarch/former parliamentarian dirty money. Over a dozen foreign influence peddlers were large foundation donors - after Clinton became Secretary of State in 2009.
As a presidential aspirant, critics claim a potentially serious conflict of interest accepting millions of dollars from foreign governments she'd have direct dealings with if elected.
Federal law prohibits governments, corporations, individuals and groups from contributing to US political campaigns.
Funding Clinton's foundation buys influence. She represents the worst of America's dark side. America already is unfit to live in. Imagine how much worse with her as president.
